One of the illusionary advantages to being connected in a totalitarian systems is that because laws unevenly enforced meaning rules that others are ruined by don’t apply to you.

The thing is people who ignore the rules tend to forget them so if you fall out of favor with the powers that be then suddenly you might find that not only do the rules apply to you, but it becomes impossible to explain away your willingness to break them without claiming that they simply don’t apply to you.

That’s the trap the Clinton’s are in because Barack Obama and his allies, while busy doing their best to finish their destruction of the American economy, the America’s culture and the American military has has decided to take a few minutes to remind the Clintons who holds power.

Rather than treat the Clintons like a Lois Lerner for whom the rules don’t apply, Barack Obama has decided that with his terms ending, the usefulness of Hillary Clinton has come to an end as well.

Bryann Pagliano’s pleading the fifth makes it game set and match to Obama.

Clinton is in an impossible position. While partisan democrats will rationalize this away (See John Podesta for a great example of this ignore) normal Americans understnad that you don’t plead the fifth when there is nothing to hide. That makes her an impossible candidate in the general election.

Even worse for Clinton is that if she counterattacks Obama she risks losing the black community in the primaries that has proved itself willing to defend Barack Obama to the death rather than admit that as much has he’s been an unmitigated disaster for the country, he’s been even worse for them.

Hillary choices are impossible. The only reason so many people are paying big money to Bill is power, the potential power of a Hillary Clinton in the White House. If she & Bill decide on a quixotic attack on the Obama’s even if she wins she loses.

And if she drops out before the primaries start she has to somehow make herself a credible potential candidate in the future, presuming of course the Obama’s don’t just go for the kill and eliminate the potential threat of a resurgent Clinton clan that has more lives that a cat lady’s entire litter.

Hillary’s position is untenable if she stays and nearly impossible or untenable if she goes, the only thing she can definitely do, if she so chooses, is to try and take the Obama’s down with her. While that might have a certain appeal it’s not something her loyalists, whose true loyalty is to the money & power she provides, are likely to go for.

Normally there is always the wild card of republicans doing something stupid enough to save her but with Trump playing the shield for the entire GOP field the media can’t change the narrative in time to save her.

So, Republican stupidity not withstanding I’m going to go out on a limb here. No matter how you slice it, there is only one conclusion to be drawn, while we don’t know the how or the final details there is only one conclusion to be drawn from what we’ve seen:

When comes to President Hillary you stick a fork in her, she’s done.

Romney in Illinois, 2012
Romney in Illinois, 2012

By John Ruberry

It’s hard to fathom now, but one of the major issues of the 2012 presidential campaign was Mitt Romney’s 15-year leadership of the Boston-based private equity firm Bain Capital, which he co-founded.

Two years later President Obama, who of course defeated Romney in ’12, faces multiple crises, including scandals involving IRS targeting of conservative groups, deadly waiting lists at VA hospitals, as well as a collapsing Iraq, Russia’s seizure of Ukraine, a still stagnant economy, and 300,000 illegal alien children crossing over our lightly watched southern border.

None of these hotspots have anything to do with Bain Capital, other than, remotely, the rotten Obama economy.

Under Romney, Bain rescued many companies from failure. And it provided seed money for new firms such as Staples, which now operates over two-thousand stores. Sure, a few of Bain’s investments didn’t work out, but failure–as well as success–is how capitalism works.

While at the NATO summit in the spring of 2012, Obama defended attacks on Romney’s tenure at Bain.

What did that have to do with NATO?

However, Romney left Bain in 1999 to engineer his greatest turnaround, the rescue of the scandal-plagued 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. He then moved on and was elected governor of Massachusetts.

During the campaign, a liberal super PAC, Priorities USA, blamed Bain Capital and Romney in a video for the death from cancer of a woman after her husband was laid off from a Bain-owned company. That claim was almost immediately debunked, yet Obama only half-heartedly disavowed it.

Obama and his surrogates were partaking in an old Saul Alinksy tactic–straw man attacks.

John "Lee" Ruberry
John “Lee” Ruberry

Paul Ryan, Romney’s running mate, neatly summed up Obama’s mischief last year:

Look, it’s the same trick he plays every time: Fight a straw man. Avoid honest debate. Win the argument by default.

Yes, Obama is winning arguments. But our nation is becoming increasing dysfunctional.

Obama, like King Robert Baratheon in Game of Thrones, mistakenly believes victory and running a country are the same thing.

It’s a road map for disaster. And we have arrived at our unhappy destination.

John Ruberry regularly blogs at Marathon Pundit.

Senator Rick Santorum spoke at the NLRC 2014 event:

After his speech he gave me a few minutes

I firmly believe that if we had nominated Senator Santorum last time around he would be President Santorum today and we’d be a lot better off.

REMINDER: In 2009, Barack Obama “Joked” About Having The IRS Audit His Enemies.

Glenn Reynolds

As everyone knows I’m a tea party republican so one might think that I’d be delighted because Chris Christie is in hot water, well I am delighted but for a totally different reason.

This Morning MSNBC, and the rest of the left has gone all in on Chris Christie concerning the bridge scandal.  Memeorandum is full of stories:

 EMS responses delayed by GWB lane closures in Fort Lee

Christie’s Waterloo

I’ll have a lot to write about the meat and potatoes of this business later this later but I want to talk about the incredible opportunity this gives the GOP.

Right now the media is obsessed with this scandal, it’s everywhere and their arguments look like this:

How DARE Christie or his aides use the power of his office during an election campaign to punish a political foe.

How DARE Chris Christie or his aides use a state agency to make this happen.

How DARE Chris Christie or his aides take a cavalier attitude toward ordinary people’s lives.

If anyone thinks that Chris Christie & or his campaign didn’t know about this or didn’t support it with a wink & nod they are completely naive.

And all of these media types are just dying to have members of the GOP come on their shows to comment on this horrible GOP scandal and if the GOP is smart at all, they should jump at the chance.

And they should use every moment on the air to compare and contrast the media reaction to this Christie Scandal to the IRS scandal.

How horrible that in view of the ongoing IRS scandal where a government agency was used to go after conservatives that such a thing would happen.

They should wonder aloud if any of Chris Christie’s aides will plead the 5th under oath like the IRS people did.

They should talk about how Chris Christie should not stonewall or put up roadblocks as the Obama administration has continued to do with the IRS scandal.

And they should of course talk about the contrast between the media interest, saying perhaps Christie might use the Obama strategy on the IRS scandal, deny and stonewall in the hope that the media will ignore it over time.

They should POUND this there should be no answer that comes out of their lips that doesn’t use the words “IRS Scandal” and “Bridge Scandal” in the same sentence.  Every article written on it by any conservative source should mention it, contrast it play on the difference in media interest between the pair.

In fact if I’m Chris Christie I bring up the IRS scandal over and over again at my press conference saying stuff like:  ” I’m not going to delay or stonewall this investigation like the President & the IRS.”  and make it a point to constantly contrast the IRS scandal to this one.

Who knows if they press are in a spot where they can’t quote him without bringing up IRS they might even back off.

This is a gimme, a no brainer and the GOP needs to take full advantage of it and milk it for as much as they can.

No charge GOP, but Tip Jar hits will be cheerfully accepted.

Update:  via Glenn, James Taranto gets it:

Its sheer pettiness is what distinguishes the GWB scandal from the ObamaCare and IRS ones. The ObamaCare fraud was in the service of an ambitious ideological agenda, and as we have argued, the 2012 election was close enough that it is possible the IRS’s suppression of opposition was necessary to secure the president a second term. Christie, by contrast, is not much of an ideologue and was cruising to an easy re-election.

In the latter regard, the bridge shenanigans look more like the Watergate burglary–a gratuitous misuse of power. “Reporters will eventually demand to know . . . what Christie knew and when he knew it,” observes conservative blogger Sean Davis. “None of the defenses now available to Christie–intentional deceit or intentional ignorance–paint him in a favorable light.” That’s especially true if voters two years from now are looking for a corrective to the corruption and deception of the Obama years.

Update 2:  Can I get an AMEN for Erick Erickson & John Nolte:

 

Update 3: Christie Press conference in progress. Straight up apologies, no justifications for lying Bridget Anne Kelly fired. Would never have joked about this if he every had an inkling that anyone on the staff would be so stupid to be involved and so deceitful as to lie about it to us.

“I am responsible for what happened.”

Update 4:  Assuming he is not lying through his teeth this press conference is a textbook example of how something like this should be done.  Watching him taking questions on the issue.  The contrast to the last four years of Obama administration plus Al Gore’s “No controlling legal authority” and “It depends on what the meaning of the word “is”  is.” can’t be overstated.

Update 5:  90 minutes into press conference and MSM is getting upset

the ultimate irony?

If Christie hasn’t answer more questions on Bridgegate than Obama has on all his scandals combined it’s damn close at this point.

It’s Thursday and for the 2nd week in a row we start a Thursday at 30% of our weekly pay goal.

Since however reaching Thursday means over 58% of the week has passed that means we are once again in a hole.

When you think about it the hole isn’t deep at the start of a week a mere $50 a day avg will assure us of full coffers, but with only three days to go we need at least $80 a day for the next three days to make the goal with only a dollar to spare.

So While I’d be delighted to get the full $239 out of the way if we can get $140 we’ll be back on track for the week. Even a mere $80 today would be a third of the way home with three days left.

If you can help please consider hitting DaTipJar below..

I remember the first Scott Brown campaign.

The crowds were incredible, the excitement was contagious, people in Massachusetts really believed it was a sign that the direction that had led us to ruin for decades might actually be ending.

And the Grass Roots that had been silent for years, the people who were sick of political correctness, of government intrusion, of high taxes and who say Mr. Brown as the best and last chance to stop Obamacare disaster that they (unlike the MSM) clearly saw before them, in its tracks emerged from the shadows and worked, oh HOW they worked. The number of man hours, the phone calls, the stand out were incredible.

They gave the one item that is more valuable than money for a campaign, The one thing you can never make more of…TIME!

After the victory he was hailed at CPAC he was celebrated, local bars were naming drinks after him and fear gripped the left in Massachusetts to the point where millions were spent to defend seats in congress in 2010 simply to hold the line and while they managed to do this, it cost them in many close races nationwide and lead to the GOP house majority that remains to this day.

Brown was a pragmatic senator on many issues and the media cheered him on celebrating him and suggesting that his only chance for re-election was to move left, unfortunately Brown agreed, time and time again he sided with Democrats and ran from the Tea Party that worked so hard to elect him.

When the Democrats choose the extreme ultra left candidate Elizabeth “You didn’t build that” Warren as their candidate national Democrats were orgasmic, gone was their complements of Scott Brown & the fawning media coverage. Instead they elevated Warren and dumped millions into sending Senator Brown home.

Alas with the left solidly against him, Brown still veered left and like Mitt Romney he kept his distance from the Tea Party and the base even as he needed ever single vote to keep his seat.

It didn’t save Mitt & it didn’t save Brown.

2014 is just a few days away and with Obamacare crashing and burning the best chance they have to save the senate for Barack Obama is to exacerbate the conflicts between the Tea Party & the Establishment GOP.

And lo and behold suddenly MSNBC and Morning Joe are all abuzz about Senator Brown selling his house in Massachusetts and moving to NH to run for the Senate Seat currently occupied by Jeanne Shaheen.

Already the backlash over Brown’s positions has begun, The Nashua protests will just be the beginning and the media will do their best to fan the flames in order to rip the partnership that made the GOP a majority party in congress asunder and rest assured it will only get worse as time goes on.

Maybe Senator Brown thinks he’s the best chance to beat Senator Shaheen, after all the contrast between the 60th vote for & the 41st vote against Obamacare is an appealing political juxtaposition but that will be small comfort if it rips the GOP apart in the one state in New England where they still have an organization that can complete on the state and national level.

In a piece at Fox Senator Brown wrote this:

Democrats would love for nothing more than for us to spend precious time and resources fighting amongst ourselves on unrelated issues. Indeed, this remains their best hope for avoiding a total wipeout at the ballot box next year.

If we aren’t able to come together and stand united around our core principles, the future of both our country and our political party is bleak.

That’s true, but I can’t think of anything that is more likely to cause that to happen in New Hampshire than Senator Brown running in the state for Senate.  The left did their best to use Senator Brown once before against the party and his own interests and it ended in defeat and division in the Massachusetts GOP just as it had a chance to begin their climb out of an impossible hole.  If he is truly concerned with party unity, if he wants to be sure the GOP has a united message so they win local races in the state as well as that vulnerable senate seat, the best thing he can do is stay out of the primary and endorse whoever wins to the hilt.

It will be quite Ironic if three years after Scott Brown was the spark that torched their citadel in 2010 he becomes the Molotov Cocktail to burn down the GOP chances to win the Senate and keep a hold in NH.

Update: The subject of the grass roots and marketing came up on this week’s show a key except:

Whose going to man the offices, who’s going to bang on the doors, make phone calls do those things and volunteer in waves, and when that first wave of volunteer gets tired you got to have a 2nd wave & a third wave and the first wave is rejuvenated and those people do tend to be on the ah not on the extremes but the more dedicated people, then perhaps from a republican point of view more conservative.

Paid consultants are all about their pay, it’s the volunteers that are willing to work without pay that make the difference and they come from the base.

You know when playing “follow the leader” with a political party is a problem?  When that leader lies through his teeth and you mimic him:

How many Democrats made the promise? There’s no comprehensive list of all of them, but Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office has compiled a list of 27 Democratic senators who pledged that Americans could keep their coverage under Obamacare. The list includes the entire Democratic leadership in the Senate as well as Democrats facing tough re-election races in 2014, like Mary Landrieu, Mark Begich, and Kay Hagan. Here is that list, compiled by McConnell’s office:

How much do you want to bet that as soon as they put themselves on record supporting he Upton bill vulnerable elected democrats had aides diving through their twitter streams to delete any sign of them repeating the President’s Promise in their name.

Of course for Democrats in districts where they couldn’t lose if they released a sex tape foursome with Hitler, Satan & Cruella de Vil it’s not a problem:

Pelosi isn’t worried, and she’s not alone.  Check out these names from Byron’s York’s list.

DURBIN (D_Il), SCHUMER (D-NY), MURRAY (D-Wash.), HARKIN (D-Iowa), BOXER (D-Calif.), CARDIN (D-Md.), LEAHY (D-Vt.), MENENDEZ (D-N.J.), MERKLEY (D-Oreg.), MIKULSKI (D-Md.), REED (D-R.I.), SANDERS (I-Vt.), WHITEHOUSE (D-R.I.).

Do you think a single one of them is going to be called on direct lies to the voters of their state? Is a single one of them frightened for their job over this disaster?

No.

The ultimate responsibility lies of course with the voters who send people who lie to their face back to the congress over and over again but in fairness the people who helped these pols deceive the voter are the press.

While Tom Brokov on Meet the Press Sunday talked about the Russians giving President Obama cover on Syria but neither he nor his counterparts on any other network had anything to say about the cover they gave the president and democrats for five years. As I asked on twitter:

 

Stacy McCain had the answer:

Grant that the editors of the Los Angeles Times know their readership: No Republican would subscribe to a newspaper which is so blatantly biased, and so the remaining subscriber base of the Los Angeles Times – which has been hemorrhaging circulation for 20 years — is composed entirely of Democrats who don’t want to read honest reporting. Just like the New York Times, the Washington Post and practically every other major newspaper in America, the Los Angeles Times has become a Democrat Party propaganda organ.

“Liberal bias is not a matter of unfairness, but rather
a matter of dishonesty — deliberately ignoring some facts,
and misrepresenting other facts, in order to misinform
the public by portraying to them a politically falsified
view of events and personalities.”

I submit and suggest that we have a press that is so desperate for Democrats in general and the first Black President in particular to succeed that they either kept themselves willfully ignorant or simply didn’t report any evidence contrary to the party line and I echo Stacy McCain’s final word from his excellent piece:

The problem is that you’re not angry enough about this.

Until the viewers and voters get angry enough, nothing will change.

Via Ed Driscoll & JohnE. at Ace of Spades, comes this video.

It’s Monday and we’ve had two straight horrible Tip Jar weeks where we not only didn’t make paycheck, but the two weeks combined didn’t even make the old pre-magnificent Seven goal let alone our new $340 weekly goal.

Boy how time flies.

I Remember those heady days of Yesteryear. That time only 17 months ago when Rick Santorum was making this point in Concord New Hampshire:

“How about the argument that all men are created equal and the right to happiness?” Santorum pounces:

“Are we saying everyone has the right to marry?”

The crowd claps and agrees with loud shouts, Santorum continues

“So anyone can marry anyone else?” when the crowd approves, he asks “So anyone can marry several people?”

At once the crowd starts to object, filibuster and interrupt,

Well of COURSE they were objecting , filibustering and interrupting after all it’s not like gay marriage was going to lead to polygamy, otherwise after the Supreme Court ruled it it’s favor you would have mainstream reporters like Matt Lewis in the Daily Caller talking like this:

I mean, who are we to say that two or three or even four consenting adults — who want to make a lifelong commitment to love one another — shouldn’t be allowed to do so?

What’s magical about the number two?

Or Buzz Feed saying this:

Anne Wilde, a vocal advocate for polygamist rights who practiced the lifestyle herself until her husband died in 2003, praised the court’s decision as a sign that society’s stringent attachment to traditional “family values” is evolving.

“I was very glad… The nuclear family, with a dad and a mom and two or three kids, is not the majority anymore,” said Wilde. “Now it’s grandparents taking care of kids, single parents, gay parents. I think people are more and more understanding that as consenting adults, we should be able to raise a family however we choose.”

Or Reason saying this:

Is it time for a discussion of polygamy as a viable life choice tolerated by the federal government? With the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act, it may be the time to start publicly considering whether the state has any legitimate interest in monitoring the number of people in a marriage, not just the gender. And unlike spouses in same-sex marriages, polygamists can go to jail.

Weren’t those fun old days when all the right people justy knew Rick Santorum was just some Catholic fundamentalist spreading alarmist rhetoric.

How quaint.

Shelby Foote on Robert E. Lee

For a very long time in 2011 & 2012 I was saying to anyone that would listen that the Democrats were Demoralized as hell and the GOP should “ride right through them”.

Over and over I pointed to things the Democrats in general and the Obama campaign in particular were doing that indicated they were worried.

The reason WHY the democrats were doing these things was because they knew they were in trouble and were doing all they could to counter it in order to win.

Of course while the Democrats were doing what they could control there were things that they supposedly couldn’t control and one of the things were the actions of Tea Party activists as Glenn Reynolds wrote before the last election:

In 2010, the Tea Party movement delivered a huge setback to Obama and the Democrats in congressional elections. And from 2010 up to now, it’s delivered telling blows to insufficiently responsible Republican legislators in one primary election and caucus after another. (Just ask former Utah Sen. Robert Bennett, or Indiana’s Richard Lugar, or even the victorious but chastened Orrin Hatch).

But now comes the Tea Party’s biggest test. Can it swing a close presidential election against a dependency-loving incumbent, and in favor of a fiscally responsible challenger?

People forget how scared the left actually was, let me remind you of what Michael Moore was saying DURING the Democrat convention

Listen to these quotes:

The big problem is Obama’s base is ‘Yeah I think I’m going to vote for him’ but this time four years ago everybody including myself were working on phone banks.

and this

Young people who were voting for him four years ago are not that enthused and are not working like they were four years ago.

Moore did something you don’t often see him do, give an honest assessment of a situation, acting not as a propagandist but as a realist. He said out loud what a lot of people on the left know and what the media know but are doing their best to hide.

Democrats were worried and it showed. That’s unfortunately one of the reasons why Mitt Romney’s campaign felt he could both step on his own activists while playing the Gentleman with Obama.

Let me remind you I first used the phrase on January 20th 2010 the day after Scott Brown’s victory the event that MADE the tea party.

Why does this matter because the date of the anti-tea party moves of the IRS has continued to move back:

The scrutiny began, however, in March 2010, before an uptick could have been observed, according to data contained in the audit released Tuesday from the Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration…

March 2010 two months after the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts!

Anyone who thinks that timing is a coincidence is either imbecilic, insane or indoctrinated

When I commented during the election season about the Obama administration’s fear of the tea party I said:

You can’t do a damn thing about them, you can only hope to outwork them with your paid guys.

Apparently that sentence should have said was:

You can’t do a damn thing about them…unless you are a believer in the principle of “The Ends Justifies the means” and willing to use Nixon style tactics..

Lyndon Johnson famously said, if you do everything you can win, he didn’t specify “everything legal”.

I can’t say it is a fact, that Barack Obama or his campaign officially used the IRS to retard the growth and the effectiveness of the Tea Party in order to decrease their reach and effectiveness a foe on 2012, at least not yet…

…but I will say in my opinion that an Administration willing to leave Americans to die in Benghazi and frame a crummy filmmaker as responsible for it are certainly capable of it.
