Why We Celebrate Thanksgiving In America

As progressives in the Democrat media like E.J. Dionne express their thanks for politicians who direct in increasing part of our lives, it is useful to recall why we actually celebrate Thanksgiving in America. President Ronald Reagan perhaps explained it best in his 1985 Thanksgiving address:

“I Just Took An Action To Change The Law”

If our self-appointed king has no problem admitting that his decree providing de facto amnesty for five million illegal aliens changed the law our immigration laws…

…why his apologists keep arguing otherwise?

What Part Of NO Do You Not Understand Mr. President?

The day after 2014 voters finished firing another 300-some Democrats, President Barack Obama dismissed the voters’ repudiation of Democrat policies by insinuating that the Americans who did not vote actually support them:

Taking up the challenge, Gallup polled Americans and asked them whether they would prefer that their new GOP Congress of President Obama should be setting policy in the future and the American people choose the Congress they just elected by an emphatic 53% to 36% margin:

gallup

I seriously doubt that our president and wannabe dictator has ever and will now give a damn what the voters or the American people at large think.

The Mind Of The American Progressive

MIT economics professor and Romneycare/Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber explains that Democrats had to lie to you about Obamacare because you are too stupid to appreciate their handwork:

This speaks for itself.

UPDATE: Here is another Gruber video if for some reason you believe all the others were simply “mistakes.”

UPDATE TWO: Here is another Gruber video discussing how our government sought to tax us through our insurers because we are too stupid to see the connection to our rising premiums:

BTW, Obamacare is filled with such pass through taxes. If you have employer group health insurance, you are paying at least two taxes your insurer is likely calling a premium increase. Three if you have a comprehensive policy which falls under the “cadillac tax.”

UPDATE THREE: Of course the liars at the White House, spun this by calling the GOP liars:

This is your government at work.

The Great Rejection

Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 7.47.05 AM   5 November 2014

Just six years ago, the voters elected Democrats to supermajority control over the federal government and majority control over the states. The Democrat media declared the Republican Party dead and a glorious new era of blue governance was upon us.

Yesterday, the second wave election in four years washed across America, sweeping away Democrat government from coast to coast. The Democratic party is now in its weakest position since 1928 before the New Deal!

How did this remarkable political sea change occur?

Even Democrats cannot fool all the people all the time.

In 2008, Barack Obama won the presidential election based on a cult of personality and lies about nearly every one of his policy positions. The Democrats took Congress campaigning to the right of a profligate and corrupt GOP Congress.

After campaigning from the center, Obama and the Democrats governed as socialists and progressives, imposing an array of policies from rampant borrowing and spending to Obamacare which pluralities to majorities of the American people opposed.

The Democrat misgovernance emphatically put the lie to their fraudulent “conservative Democrat” campaign brand.

In response, the 2010-2011 voters fired over 600 Democrats in the state and federal governments in the largest wave election since 1946. The voters elected a GOP House and a GOP majority of state governments.

Instead of bowing to the will of the voters and governing conservatively as Bill Clinton did after the smaller 1994 wave election, Obama doubled down and started governing as a de facto dictator, imposing tens of thousands of pages of law by decree through the bureaucracy and ignoring laws of Congress (including his own) which got in his way.

2012 was an ahistoric election, not a Democratic trend. Obama survived by turning out his urban base (he lost in most of the country) and by suppressing the white working class vote by successfully demonizing Romney as a plutocrat. In contrast, the weakened Democratic Party position did not improve at all in 2012. The Obama coalition of African Americans, Hispanics, Millennials and women were a product of his own cult of personality and have not carried over to other Democrats since 2008.

In 2014, a second voter wave hit the Democrat coast, firing the Democrat Senate and expanding the GOP House and state governments to their best position since 1928 before the New Deal. The Democrat media polls all underestimated voter anger at Obama and the Democrats.

I strongly urge Republicans not to misinterpret these two wave elections.

These elections are a voter rejection of the Democrats’ progressive and socialist policy – arguably one of the largest rejections of a political party in American history. These elections were not a vote of confidence in the Republican Party.

The voters have made it very clear that they want a limited government which does not kill their jobs and try to run their lives.

The GOP has not offered such a government since Newt Gingrich back in the 1990s. Indeed, the voters fired the GOP Congress in 2006 in large measure because they were corrupt spendthrifts.

The GOP has a chance now to regain voters’ trust as a genuine libertarian conservative alternative to the Democrats.

Will they take this opportunity?

UPDATE: The voters just fired another 350-375 Democrats from state legislatures.

Illegal Aliens, Illegal Voters: Why Voter ID Is Necessary

Political science professors Jesse T. Richman, Gulshan A. Chattha and David C. Earnest recently published a analysis of the massive Cooperative Congressional Election Study polling data in the journal Electoral Studies and discovered millions of non-citizens are illegally registered to vote and a substantial percentage are casting ballots:

How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.

Non-citizen residents consist of approximately 13 million legal permanent residents and another 11 million illegal aliens for a total of 24 million.

Thus, if the Richman, Chatta, Earnest study is basically correct, 3.3 million non-citizens are registered to vote and up to 1.5 million have cast ballots during the 2008 election! The study further found that 80% of non-citizen voters cast a ballot for Obama.

Additional evidence of mass voting fraud by non-citizens is also emerging at the state level.

In Maryland, the Virginia Voters Alliance filed suit against state and county elections officials to prevent thousands of admitted non-citizens from voting in the upcoming election:

The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people in Frederick County who stated that they are not U.S. citizens on jury duty forms went on to cast votes in elections. Either they failed to tell the truth when they were summoned for jury duty, or they cast illegal votes. Both are crimes.

That is just one county.

In North Carolina, a state with one of the most closely contested Senate races of the 2014 election, Project Veritas had a reporter pose as an illegal alien and ask various Democrat campaign members whether he could vote and they readily told the “illegal alien” to commit voter fraud and cast a ballot:

THIS is why the GOP is working to enact and Democrats are hysterically opposing voter ID laws.

UPDATE: Meanwhile, the immigration amnesty group La Raza is distributing a map of states where non-citizens can vote without showing photo ID.
