Michael Ledeen: The Left, From Progressive to Oppressive

"The American Left has come to this sorry condition more recently. For most of the past two hundred-plus years there were deep, fundamental differences between European and American leftists. The Europeans were more doctrinaire, the Americans more pragmatic. The Euros insisted on translating Marx into political and social parties and unions, the Americans never had a serious socialist labor movement. And the Euros were suckers for Communism in a way the Americans never were. The Euros fell for 'state socialism,' while the American Dream inspired most Americans."

Breitbart Unveils 'Big Journalism' to Combat 'Democrat-Media Complex'

"Battling the 'Democrat-media complex' is hard work, but Andrew Breitbart shows no signs of letting up. He announced today in an interview with Mediaite that he will launch a new site entitled 'Big Journalism' in January designed solely, in his blunt words, to 'fight the mainstream media.'"

'Welcome to Obamaville' Sign At Homeless Tent City, Media Mum

"A sign reading 'Welcome to Obamaville Colorado's Fastest Growing Community' appeared at a homeless tent city in Colorado Springs this week.

"You probably didn't hear about it because outside of two Colorado television stations nobody found this newsworthy.

"By contrast, when word got out in March of a tent city in Sacramento, California, news media couldn't get enough of the story."

Frank Salvato: American Liberty v. Obama’s Social Engineering

"After the General Election of 2008 I made a conscious effort to give President Obama a chance. I wanted to give him an opportunity to be true to his word; to prove that he was committed to governing from the center. I also wanted to demonstrate that I was not of the same ilk as the Bush-hating, 'he stole the election,' fact-ignoring Progressive malcontents that served to divide the country over the eight years of the Bush Administration. But now, a year after the election, and as we approach a full year of the Obama Administration, it has become abundantly clear that Mr. Obama has abandoned almost all of his campaign promises (but for his commitments to the SEIU) and is governing from the far Left. He has instituted a campaign of social engineering that can only be described as a direct threat to liberty."

Michael Zak: Colin Powell's endorsement of Obama will live... in infamy

"Has anyone heard from Colin Powell lately? Since Barack Obama became president, there has been complete silence from Colin Powell about a man he described as having 'great insight into the challenges we're facing of a military and political and economic nature.' When can we expect Powell to show the courage to admit his mistake, his blunder, his betrayal?"

He would have gotten off the hook by endorsing Cynthia McKinney or Alan Keyes.

Mark Alexander: Job Creation for Dummies

"I suspect Obama was suggesting that some of his proposals thus far have been good ideas. Unfortunately, despite all the jobs Obama claims to have saved or created with his $787 billion 'stimulus' package, unemployment has increased from 7.6 percent when he took office, to 10 percent.

"Setting aside the absurdity of his pet 'saved or created' construct, it seems to me that if he had actually created jobs, unemployment would be somewhere under 7.6 percent. But Democrat math never adds up. Fact is, there has been a net loss of at least 3.4 million jobs under the 'Obama recovery.'

"'We're not going to get anything useful out of [this summit],' concluded Peter Morici, from the University of Maryland's Smith School of Business. Obama and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner 'really don't know what to do.'

"That would be an understatement."

Al Gore: Climate Change Coward

"Al Gore has made millions of dollars from the Global Warming Hoax, and that is despite the fact that he is a major hypocrite, with a 'carbon footprint' the size of Cleveland. He travels the world in his private planes and gas guzzling limousines, he has a large energy inefficient estate in Tennessee where he lives with his family. Heck even during the 'Earth Hour' promotion in March when all of the Moonbats turned off their electric for 60 minutes, The former VP's house was running the electric.

"This is how Drew Johnson described the view outside the Gore Mansion:

"'I pulled up to Al’s house, located in the posh Belle Meade section of Nashville, at 8:48pm – right in the middle of Earth Hour. I found that the main spotlights that usually illuminate his 9,000 square foot mansion were dark, but several of the lights inside the house were on.

"'In fact, most of the windows were lit by the familiar blue-ish hue indicating that floor lamps and ceiling fixtures were off, but TV screens and computer monitors were hard at work. (In other words, his house looked the way most houses look about 1:45am when their inhabitants are distractedly watching 'Cheaters' or 'Chelsea Lately' reruns while surfing fetish porn.) The kicker, though, were the dozen or so floodlights grandly highlighting several trees and illuminating the driveway entrance of Gore’s mansion.'"

Puncturing the Climate Balloon

"These many alarmist groups appear to have little concern over whether their global warming prognostications are accurate, however. And they most certainly are not. The alarmists believe they will be able to scare enough of our citizens into believing their propaganda that the public will be willing to follow their advice on future energy usage and agree to a lowering of their standard of living in the name of climate salvation."

John Coleman – KUSI-TV, Weather Channel Founder: the “six legged monster”

"(1) The big money climate change scientists and their powerful institutions from governmental centers to Universities,

"(2) The United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which is a Geneva-based, highly funded bureaucracy controlled by one-world government political activists,

"(3) Environmentalists who seek to use threats of climate chaos to stop the use of fossil fuels and return to a simpler, more 'natural', primitive lifestyle,

"(4) Government at all levels whose political leaders find dealing with global warming is their opportunity to save us all from disaster cementing their status and success,

"(5) The media populated by people who love to warn us of impending disaster and give us the advice we need to cope, who believe in Al Gore and his political party and who know that “the sky is falling” is the best headline of them all,

"(6) Al Gore, who uses his status as a successful former Senator and Vice President to provide a platform to promote his message of doom and gloom, a message he learned in his only college science class and must have truly believed for many years but should see now is only an empty threat.

Not Evil Just Wrong Blowing Away Copenhagen Religion

Christopher Monckton : The Hitlerettes of “SustainUS”

"Here in Copenhagen, the 'global warming' conference is hotting up despite the freezing weather. A couple of nights ago, a peaceful meeting of Americans for Prosperity was broken up by several dozen chanting preppie goons from SustainUS, a Hitlerian environmental pressure-group largely funded by US taxpayers. The thugs and thugettes were determined to exercise their right of free speech at the expense of ours.

"These animals’ loutish assault on our meeting, and my conversation about it the next day, have gone viral on the internet as people realize – many for the first time – that, in today’s environmental movement, the intolerance, arrogance, and viciousness of Nazism is back – and this time it is worldwide.

"A student at a British university did not like it when the members of our audience – reported by me on German television and subsequently worldwide - gave their opinions that the SustainUS thugs were no better than the Hitler Youth. Here, in full, is his complaint, and my reply.

"'Dear Lord Monckton, – I write, perhaps as one of many, with the deepest regret for your actions in Copenhagen this week. By resorting to ad hominem attacks on members of SustainUS you have sabotaged your own cause by reducing your credibility. I feel aggrieved that a person who takes such actions as you may still claim the title "Lord".

"'Previous to your comments I disagreed with you on the issue of climate change but nonetheless followed your views and read your articles as a student of the topic. Now I feel you have crossed the line and shown that your arguments cannot stand alone without resorting to insults and patronising comments to those who wish to civilly discuss with you.

"'I am a member of the youth of this nation, and perhaps by my actions and opinions you might also call me a member of the "Hitler youth". But make no mistake, the youth are the future and by your actions you have alienated them and inspired many more to oppose you.

"'Initially the opposition to you was about science. Now the opposition is to you as a person for your hateful remarks. Yours in disappointment, – A student.'

"Dear Student, – Thank you for taking the trouble to let me know what you think. Perhaps a little background would be helpful. Some 50 robotically-chanting thugs invaded a meeting that some colleagues and I were holding, jostled and intimidated us, and did their best to interfere with our right of free speech for as long as they could get away with it. They showed not the slightest intention of engaging in civil discussion with us.

"Three German and one Danish members of our audience were distraught. They said no attempt like this to prevent free speech had ever been seen in Copenhagen since the Nazis had occupied the city during the Second World War. The Hitlerettes had lied in order to get into the meeting, and had clearly been lavishly funded (by taxpayers, mostly, according to our enquiries for the police report) and had also been very carefully briefed. Peaceful protesters would have demonstrated outside, rather than violently breaking up our meeting in the manner all too familiar to those who know the mid-20th-century history of Europe.

"I broadcast their remarks on German television and, the next morning, when I was visiting the stands operated by various (again almost exclusively taxpayer-funded) environmental organizations, several of them surrounded me and began saying how displeased they were that I had compared them to the Hitlerjugend. I explained my reasoning, and refused otherwise to have anything to do with any of them.

"With my colleagues, I am considering at present whether we should report these gruesome louts to the police, who have been given very wide powers to prevent precisely this sort of violent intrusion into what had been, until they lied and cheated their way in, a peaceful meeting.

"On YouTube, where the video these goons shot of my refusal to knuckle under to their intimidating terror tactics is displayed, to their horror the comments on the video are running at well over ten to one in my favour. And, though my comments have been publicly available for two days, you are the first and only person who has written to me as you have. Free speech is a precious commodity, and, whether you like it or not, I intend to speak out for it as clearly as possible while I still can.

"For years, we who have been quietly conducting careful scientific research and publishing our counter-consensual results both in and out of the peer-reviewed journals have been subjected to daily accusations in the news media that we are climate 'deniers' or 'denialists', with calculated and malevolent overtones of Holocaust denial. In short, we are regularly, and with no justification, subjected to exactly the opprobrium which, with full justification, I heaped upon the Hitlerettes of SustainUS, whose faces, bullying tactics, and incapacity to argue sensibly for their opinions are now rightly notorious round the world."

Our European Arrogance in Alphabetical Order


Adrienne Ross: The Racism Game - We're Not Playing

"This Hawaii nonsense is just the newest in a long history of 'Sarah Palin is a racist' schtick. This is the first one I heard involving Asians, however. I guess the haters are strengthening their approach. Normally, it's the racism-against-Blacks smear that gets the attention. It's become a movement, albeit one without a shred of substance. But how could there be? Chris Matthews is its leader, and he doesn't have any substance either. Time and again, he has raised the issue of race when it comes to the Governor. Is Sarah Palin the poster girl for racism? Were there any Black people at the book signing?

"He's so very concerned about Black people, isn't he? His concern would be heart-warming for me, a Black woman, if I thought there was a shred of sincerity in it.

"Instead, he's making a mockery of those, like Dr. King, who truly stood up for racial equality and wanted people to be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Although I imagine Dr. King would have enjoyed her memoir, I find it extremely hard to believe he would have been asking how many Black people showed up at Governor Palin's book signing. I think he was deeper than that. Surely he, a worthy Nobel Peace Prize recipient, did not dedicate his life to justice and peace so some hater could count off how many Black people showed up at an event. Somehow I just know he believed all Americans worthy of better than that--and would never have used people to promote his political agenda, counting people like sheep, and masking it in concern.

"I suppose Huff Po and Chris Matthews would be satisfied if Governor Palin had driven around the streets in her Going Rogue tour bus, picking up stray people and busing them to the book signing so she could have a nice photo-op and the racebaiters could be happy.

"No, the Governor treats people as people. She loves her country--and this country is made up of all different kinds of people. She espouses a message of common sense conservatism, and that message is one that benefits all Americans. Lower taxes, love for our troops, less government intrusion, and respect for human life don't have race attached to them. Contrary to what the Chris Matthewses of the world would lead people to believe, those principles do not discriminate. They don't segregate whites from non-whites. They don't appeal simply to the white people of the world, which seems to be what some on the Left would have us believe. I like them just fine, and the last time I checked I was not white. The Governor doesn't have one message for Blacks, one for Asians, and one for Caucasians. There's one America, and that's the America she sees and loves.

"What qualifies me to speak so authoritatively on the issue? Why should my word be taken over Chris Matthews, the Huffington Post, or others who smear Governor Palin?

"I'm a firm believer of the quote, 'A person with an experience is never at the mercy of a person with an argument.' My experience with the Governor shows me what kind of person she is. I have been in her presence several times now, both in New York a couple times and in Alaska. Not one time has she treated me any differently than anyone else. I have been in the presence of her family members. I have talked more to Todd Palin than I have his wife. He, too, has been nothing but friendly and welcoming. I have talked extensively with the Governor's parents, and I consider them friends. Never has there been a hint of standoffishness or a tinge of racism from any of these people. When I saw the Governor in Rochester a couple weeks ago, she hugged me warmly and spoke as she would to someone she respected.

"So the racism nonsense is just that: Nonsense with a captital N. Neither the Huffington Post, MSNBC, or any other racebaiter will convince me that the Governor is anything other than an upstanding citizen who is so totally free from racial bias that it doesn't play a factor in how she governed in Alaska, how she relates to people now, or the principles she holds dear.

"I say again, a person with an experience is never at the mercy of a person with an argument.

"America, questions about whether or not the Governor left college because she was a racist and questions about how many Black people showed up at a particular book signing are framed to insult your intelligence and play on your emotions. The truth is these foolish souls don't believe you're wise enough to catch on to the racebaiting. It's the game they try to lure you into. Let them know you're not playing."
