Reflections On Obama’s "Internet Hooligans"


Andrew Breibart hits the nail square on the head in his Washington Times Op-Ed, Rules for conservative radicals

He brings out how left-winged trolls faithful to “the One” utilize the internet to “spew their talking points to thwart the dissent of the right” and to demoralize us.

Some quotes from his Op-Ed;

“They want to ensure that Pres__ent Obama is not subject to the same coordinated, facts-be-damned, multimedia takedown they employed over eight long years to destroy the presidency – and the humanity – of George W. Bush.

Political leftists play for keeps. They are willing to lie, perform deceptive acts in a coordinated fashion and do so in a wicked way – all in the pursuit of victory. Moral relativism is alive and well in the land of Hope and Change and its Web-savvy youth brigade expresses its “idealism” in a most cynical fashion.”

And;

“Obama’s vaunted online strategy involved utilizing “Internet trolls” to invade enemy lines under false names and trying to derail discussion.”

Jeb Babbin, editor at Human Events said,

“This is nothing more than the Internet version of Soviet disinformation.”

Breibart concludes;

“The American right is in a heap of trouble in a media age that doesn’t shun the goons and liars that have poisoned the political process and won the American presidency by breaking the rules of fair play. It is time to fight back, but it won’t be easy. The enemy is willing to do and say anything in order to win.”

Without pointing out names, I do believe we can each name a few of such local “Internet Hooligans” right here. As I say it, we cannot “play nice” when they slash our jugular veins as they do.

Florida City Cancels Tea Party, Fears Too Many Attendees

WINK News in Fort Meyers, Florida is reporting that the city government in Cape Coral, Florida has “cancelled” an announced “Tea Party” there because “They feel too many people could show-up.”

Fearing more than 500 COULD appear, city government told the organizer she “needed to get a permit and insurance for the event.”

Strange requirement as I can’t recall any anti-Bush, anti-war or other leftist protest being cancelled over lack of insurance by government, even though the attendance announced is always said to be thousands expected!

It’s All America’s Fault, Naturally

Recently Hillary Clinton, failed presidential candidate, former First Lady in one of the most scandal ridden administrations in history, one term US Senator and current Secretary of State, spared no effort during a recent visit to Mexico City blaming America for the current Drug War in Mexico.

Hillary said to reporters,

“Our insatiable demand for illegal drugs fuels the drug trade. Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the death of police officers, soldiers and civilians.”

Just a couple problems with her claims.

First of all, what is this “our” in her claim of an “insatiable demand for illegal drugs?” I have no desire at all for “illegal drugs,” nor does anyone I know personally. In fact, conservative beliefs and values are most commonly anti-illegal drugs. With few exceptions, hasn’t it been conservatives and Republicans executing the so-called War on Drugs?

Again, with few exceptions, hasn’t it been liberals and Democrats who largely oppose this war and push more for allowing this so-called “insatiable desire?”

Or, was Hillary actually only meaning those of her own values?

Second, Mexican Drug Cartels aren’t who are using smuggled weapons from the U.S. to murder and kill Mexican Military and Police. They are armed with fully automatic military weapons, not available at any gun shop or gun show in America or to any private citizen.

Any weapons being smuggled south into Mexico aren’t fully automatic military weapons, but simple stolen handguns being used by private Mexican citizens to protect themselves, since Mexico has a ban on guns dating back to 1968.

Ralph Weller wrote a very enlightening article for Gun News Daily after spending much time south of the border and witnessing just what all they had down there.

As he also says, an article appearing the Latin American Herald details the arrest of a Cartel Hit man and their seizure of many weapons, including “23 grenades, two grenade launchers, and a rocket launcher,” none of which are available to any member of the private sector in America

Hillary is right that we do need to stand with the Mexican Authorities, but blaming America and turning a blind eye to Mexican government corruption will not accomplish anything.

Dealing with the public and foreign media honestly and Mexico addressing an end their own corruption will.

More Change To Believe?

First we have the cap and trade adding taxes to us. Then we see the want to determine executive pay, repeal bonuses and seize corporations. We also see the call for a Civilian National Defense Course and required service to the state. All move us closer and closer to a Socialist Marxist State. Now we see this report about yet another violation of American freedom & liberty.

Although the Bush Administration was castigated for “secrecy” around this, Obama has tightened the cloak of government secrecy around it claiming authority under B.J. Clinton’s Executive Order 12958 citing “classified in the interest of national security.”

No outrage from those who complained Bush was keeping it secret.

While ostensibly claimed as an “anti-counterfeiting treaty,” the imposition of government and intrusion into our privacy goes much deeper than all the claims made about others violating our rights.

You asked for change and it’s coming, if you don’t wake up soon.

We’ve Already Spent $1 Billion an Hour* Obamanomics "A Way to Hell"

Yeah, Europe and EU, we know…Here. *Source here.

The solution to the excess spending that ‘got us into this mess’ in Obama’s words is–more excess spending on programs that will cost EVEN MORE in the future! He will DOUBLE the DEBT in the next 10 years that took from our founding to get to $8 trillion dollars. He’ll DOUBLE IT.
Listen, folks, we’ve got to pay debt service on that. That takes a chunk of our GDP. That’s money that could be used by us PRIVATELY. Obama worsens the situation with all the bail outs and then says he wants to take over businesses BEFORE they get into trouble. Do you know what really needs to happen to make sure businesses don’t get to that point? Don’t let the government bail them out. Don’t let the government force them into stupid economics tricks to give mortgages to people who can’t afford them. They weren’t doing that until GOVERNMENT told them to do it!
Heritage has a sobering take on this situation here. Here’s a quick hit:

Obama’s massive spending explosion will do nothing to create economic growth, but it will grow our federal deficit. Again, last night, President Barack Obama claimed that his budget would cut the deficit by half by the end of his term. But as Heritage analyst Brian Riedl has pointed out, given that Obama has already helped quadruple the deficit with his stimulus package, pledging to halve it by 2013 is hardly ambitious.

Finishing his opening remarks last night, Obama said: “At the end of the day, the best way to bring our deficit down in the long run is not with a budget that continues the very same policies that have led us to a narrow prosperity and massive debt. It’s with a budget that leads to broad economic growth by moving from an era of borrow and spend to one where we save and invest.” There is no saving in Obama’s budget. Only an acceleration of the borrow and spend policies that got us where we are today.

Doubling the debt, quadrupling the deficit. This is fiscal responsibility? Where are those leftist deficit hawks who were squawking during G-4-3’s presidency? They’re now saying this plan is fiscally responsible. Did I miss something? Is crack now being served in the congressional dining hall or something?

As Ronald Reagan said of the recession at his inaugural in 1981, “in the present crisis, government isn’t the solution, it’s the problem.” He was right then and he’s right now.
