‘SCHINDLR’S LIST’ PRODUCER RIPS OBAMA’S ‘SOVIET’ TACTICS: ‘Decries ‘political prosecution’ of conservative filmmaker’!-Posted on JEROME R. CORSI-On January 24, 2014:

The Obama administration’s prosecution of conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza on campaign-finance charges is a “political prosecution” comparable to the tactics used on the communist former Soviet Union to quell dissent, charges the producer of D’Souza’s 2012 hit film, which warned of dire consequences for the nation if Obama were elected to a second term.

“When Dinesh D’Souza can be prosecuted for making a movie, every American should ask themselves one question: ‘What will I do to preserve the First Amendment?’” Gerald R. Molen, the producer of “2016: Obama’s America,” told WND.

Molen previously produced the Academy Award-winning film “Schindler’s List.”

D’Souza has a new film scheduled for release July 4, “America,” which imagines what the world would be like without the nation.

Watch the movie that explains it all. The movie that everyone is ta...

His “2016: Obama’s America” was the No. 2 political documentary of all time, Molen noted, “and it obviously got the attention of our rulers.”

“This action may have been designed to intimidate us, but it will have the opposite effect,” he said.

Federal authorities have accused D’Souza of donating more than the ..., who lost the race for the Senate seat in New York that had been vacated by Hillary Clinton.

The indictment charges D’Souza donated $20,000 to Long’s campaign by aggregating the money from various people and falsely reporting the source of the funds.

Molen told WND the prosecution of D’Souza “is the equivalent of prosecuting a political dissident in the Soviet Union for jay-walking.”

“Yes, jaywalking in the Soviet Union is a crime, but it’s a minor crime. The real point is that you are a political dissenter and the government wants to put you away,” he said.

D’Souza pleaded not guilty to the charges Friday in federal court in Manhattan, where he was released on $500,000 bond and restricted to travel in the U.S.


He faces a maximum of two years in prison for the illegal contributions charge and a maximum of five years in prison for a false statements charge. D’Souza’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, released a statement saying, “Mr. D’Souza did not act with any corrupt or criminal intent whatsoever. He and the candidate have been friends since their college days, and at worst, this was an act of misguided friendship by D’Souza.”

Molen said the Obama administration “is engaging in a practice of ‘selective enforcement of the law’ where there is double standard such that if you oppose Obama politically, the IRS and the Department of Justice knock on your door, but if you’re a liberal who supports Obama, you can say anything you want.”

In the eyes of the Obama administration, Molen contends, D’Souza’s crime was to dare to produce a movie that could damage President Obama at the polls.

“This is not the America we grew up in,” Molen said. “In the America I treasured, a president would go out of his way to protect those who disagreed with the president’s policy. That’s what the First Amendment is all about.”

Molen said D’Souza is encouraging Americans who still treasure the First Amendment and want to preserve the right to express political dissent without being prosecuted to “vote with your feet” by making the debut of D’Sousa’s next film, “America,” a success at the box office.


-   No, it’s a paranoid, right-wing fantasy

-   No, Dinsesh D’Souza may actually be guilty

-   No, Obama’s critics deserve all the punishment they get

-   No, Republicans are desperate because they hate Obama

-   No, this is more right-wing racism

-   Yes, remember when Obama said: ‘I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way’?

-   Yes, he is targeting them. He views them as a stumbling block to the U.S. he wants to create

-   Yes, punishing his enemies’ is one of the few promises Obama has actually kept

-   Yes, this is the ‘payback’ Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarret promised after Obama’s re-election

-   Yes, and combined with other recent attacks on media, it’s the most chilling attack on the First Amendment in recent memory

Obama ‘threatens Fox News reporter’s career’!-Posted on January 16, 2014:

Reports ‘put broadcaster’s job in jeopardy’

(Greta Van Susteren) - After Benghazi on 9/11/2012, the Obama administration tried very hard to discourage Fox News Channel from reporting on it. The effort was obstruction – pure and simple.

They tried to prevent the truth from coming out and the Administration tried just about everything to discourage Fox from investigating and reporting.


All the American people wanted, and all I ever wanted, was just the facts – why did 4 Americans die? What happened?

The Obama Administration put out that phony video story — but who could not have been suspicious of the Administration after hearing that? Frankly, if they had been candid on day 1, the Benghazi story would have been over in short order. It would not be to the point we are now: with a Senate Bi Partisan Intelligence Committee report with the very painful conclusion that the murders at Benghazi could have been prevented.

So let’s take a little walk in history…just a sample of how the Obama Administration tried to shut Fox News Channel’s reporting down:

In the early days after Benghazi, the State Department omitted only Fox News Channel from its conference call to all the media when it claimed to be answering questions about Benghazi for the media. Our friends in other media outlets were scandalized that Fox was not included and told us all about it. They were suspicious of State Department forgetting us/Fox and courageous to tip us off. The State Department claimed it was accident and not intentional.

And then shortly thereafter, there was the CIA briefing about Benghazi at the CIA for all the networks – except one: Fox News Channel. The CIA would not let Fox News Channel attend.

Then we had to listen to all the silliness about a video….what was with that? Did anyone ever really think that was legitimate?

And there were many times in the months and years since September 2012 when Obama Administration officials would make comments to suggest that Fox was just doing the Benghazi reporting for political reasons. The Administration was doing what it could to deter and demean the Fox News Channel investigation. They did not want to give us the facts — so their strategy was to attempt to belittle and demean our reporting.

As an aside, does the Obama Administration think politics is the reason the Democratically led Senate Intelligence Committee opened its investigation? Obviously not.

It is also interesting to note that The New York Times, thought by many to be the gold standard in journalism, recently reported that it was not Al Qaeda. According to the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report, the NY Times reporting is wrong. (Yes, the same New York Times that reported there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. That was wrong, too.)

And then as I was sitting at my desk thinking about the reporting since September 2012, I thought about the weirdest of all and the worst of all for me personally! I remembered a disturbing phone call from a good friend in the Obama Administration. I have known this friend for years. The call was a short time after 9/11 (maybe Oct. 2012?) In the call, my friend told me that my colleague Jennifer Griffin, who was aggressively reporting on Benghazi, was wrong and that, as a favor to me, my friend in the Administration was telling me so that I could tell Jennifer so that she did not ruin her career. My friend was telling me to tell Jennifer to stop her reporting. Ruin her career?

In 20 plus years, I have never received a call to try and shut down a colleague – not that I even could – this was a first. Here is what I know: Jennifer is a class act….experienced..and a very responsible journalist. One of the absolute best in the business – no axe to grind, she just wants the facts.

I told my friend before I go to Jennifer telling her she is wrong, I need proof she is wrong, strong proof and you need to be specific – what are you saying she is getting wrong? We went around and around — including the statement again that this was just a call as a favor to Jennifer and me to save Jennifer’s career from reporting incorrect information. I got no proof. Zero. I smelled a rat. Favor to me? Hardly. My friend was trying to use me. I feel bad that a friend did that to me, tried to use me for a dirty reason. I knew then — and it is now confirmed by BIPARTISAN Senate Intelligence Committee — Jennifer was getting her facts right. I think it is really low for the Administration to stoop this low.

Obama: Fox News is Responsible for My Failures!-Posted on Mr. Conservative-By Robert Rich-On January 24, 2014:

Obama recently took to an interview to whine—once again—about his failures and how, of course, they’re not his fault.  He explained that his inability to, “penetrate the Republican base,” all stems from the “caricature” Fox News and Rush Limbaugh have portrayed him to be.

Obama started his pouting session by explain that as he is the devout father of two children, going the social rout isn’t really an option.  He suggests that going out late at night for a couple of drinks with a fellow political—either Republican or Democrat—just isn’t plausible as his committed family values do not permit it.

(See also: Obama: American’s Don’t Like Me Because I’m Black)

Instead of admitting his total denial to compromise, he insists:

“I think probably, just from a purely political point of view, the bigger challenge that I’ve had has to do with the fact that there is a core group of Republican House members in particular who know that I lost their districts by twenty-five or thirty points, and that there is a Republican base of voters for whom compromise with me is a betrayal.”

Riiiight.  It wouldn’t be the fact that many of your proposals are unconstitutional or more in line with your own personal agenda rather than what’s best for the public.  He instead explains that the true reason for the lack of negotiation from Republicans actually stems from Fox News.

He claims:

“The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that we’ve put in place worked better than people might think.”

(See also: Obama Accused of Sueing S&P $5 Billion As Political Retaliation)

Members of Congress, on the other hand, feel the reason may be a little clearer than the President’s proposed excuses.  Politicians from the other side of the isle have been complaining that it’s the other way around and, in fact, it’s Obama that isn’t willing to negotiate.

Former Sen. Olympia Snowe stated, “A president should be reaching out to many on the opposite side of the aisle — you know, to many Republicans, on a bipartisan basis.”  She later went on to say that she would give Obama a, “close to failing,” grade when it came to his, “relationship with Congress.”

But it isn’t just Republican’s that have been speaking out against the “caracturized” Commander-in-Chief—several Democrats are starting to see Obama’s nonnegotiable demands to get what he wants. Sen. Joe Manchin claimed that he noticed Congress was, “almost to a crisis stage before,” Obama would intervene—and not by his own choice, but out of obligation.

Manchin explained that, “I just think sometimes they’re looking for a little bit of guidance also … that’s your responsibility as a leader to give that guidance,” speaking about congress and Obama’s inability to be a leader.

Of course, this isn’t fazing Obama as he continues to march to the beat of his own drum with blinders on. He’s taking what little support he has left as the only assurance he needs that he’s doing the right thing.

Wrapping up the interview, he states, “I’d like to think that part of that is because the Democrats up on Capitol Hill that I have relationships with know that the things I’m fighting for are things they care deeply about, and that I have a genuine commitment to seeing them succeed.”

Sure, you run with that.

What do you think—is it really Fox News’ fault or is Obama truly a disastrous failure in office?

Obama blames Limbaugh for ‘caricature’ status!-Posted on January 25, 2014:

‘It’s Me Again! Obama Says I’m His Problem’


RUSH:  Well, ladies and gentlemen, it looks like I continue to live rent free in the head of the president, Barack Obama.  It seems that the New Yorker has just posted more from their 18-page Obama interview.  I don’t know if the whole thing has been on the Internet.  I didn’t read the whole thing.  It may have been up there all the time.  But here is what the president said, the New Yorker interview with David Remnick that they have just posted.

“Another way of putting it, I guess, is that the issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that we’ve put in place worked better than people might think. And as long as there’s that gap between perceptions of me within the average Republican primary voter and the reality, it’s hard for folks like John Boehner to move too far in my direction.”


So it’s me again, and Fox News.  We are the reason Obama can’t advance his agenda, because Boehner is afraid to move too close to Obama because I have made you — along with Fox News has made you — think Obama is something that he isn’t.  And it’s such a shame.  I have so distorted who the real Obama is in your mind, that it is paralyzing our government.  It is paralyzing the Speaker of the House, who really, really, really, really wants to go in there and really, really work with Obama, but he just can’t.  It’s hard for people like Boehner to move too far in my direction because of the misperception of me, Obama says, created by Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.

And greetings, my friends.  Welcome.  Great to have you.  We’re here for another three hours of broadcast excellence here at the distinguished and special Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies.  The telephone number if you’d like to be on the program is 800-282-2882.  The e-mail address,

We have polling news all over the place today, and we have some data, some actual data that is not polling news, actual results.  For example, Quinnipiac poll has Obama way under 50% all over the place.  By the way, this is a poll that’s sympathetic to the president.  They’ve got his job approval at 40%.  Economic policy approval at 39%.  Obamacare approval at 36%.  In the Quinnipiac poll 77% say the economy is not so good or poor.  Forty-nine percent say that Obama is dishonest, and that is the majority in that category.  Fifty-three percent say the Obama Regime is incompetent.

So I guess Fox News and I are having a robust time here in getting the truth out about the Regime and the president.  You look at that poll, and looks like we’ve succeeded here.  In what?  Having the truth finally understood.  It’s only taken five years.  Five years of steady effort.

By the way, folks, I meant to get to this yesterday.  It just slipped my mind ’cause I never got to the backup Stack.  Actually it’s not the backup Stack.  It’s a holdover Stack, I mean, the stuff I don’t get to one day I put it in the Stack that is for use potentially the next day or the day after, and I’m gonna get to it today.  The latest science proving that modern mothers are lazy, and lazier.  I meant to do it yesterday.  Slipped my mind.  I’ve got it at the top of the do-over Stack today, the holdover Stack.

Anyway, the Washington Post.  The American dream has actually been dead 50 years.  The Washington Post has a story that says economic mobility hasn’t changed in 50 years.  And that would include the Clinton. I mean, the economic mobility was dead during the Clinton years.  I don’t know if the Washington Post realizes that they are acknowledging that.  No, no, no.  Of course it’s bogus.  But look, the news for Obama, the health care news, folks, Jim Angle at Fox News ran across some internal Regime documents — we reported on this — and the Regime on TV, the public face, anybody from the Regime talking about health care, “Oh, yeah, got the website up and running, all the problems ironed out, and we’re just humming along now.”  And that’s apparently not true.

The Regime, according to the documents that Jim Angle came across, the Regime is really worried that the whole thing is going to collapse.  And one of the reasons why is that the so-called back end of, which is where all the data collected then gets sent on to the Regime and to insurance companies, has yet to function.  (laughing)  The entire reason you do a website — (laughing) Folks, this would be like going on Amazon and ordering whatever you order, and it stopping there.  What’s in your shopping cart never leaving your cart.  Nobody at Amazon ever finding out what’s in your cart.  That is the essential reality here.  And the back end isn’t done.

There’s another companion story.  Aetna insurance company might be totally forced out of Obamacare.  It’s a companion story.  They’ve brought in some experts from Accenture.  Now, of those who watch golf may have heard of Accenture.  They sponsor the world golf championship, or they did.  I don’t know.  I haven’t watched a golf tournament on TV in so long I don’t know if they still do, but they were prominent as sponsors of golf tournaments.  And they used to be called something else.  I forget what they used to be called, and I still don’t know what they do now.  I guess they’re an auditing firm of some kind.  But they have been given the charge of fixing this thing by March, and if they don’t get it fixed by March, then supposedly we’re looking at an utter collapse.  You know, I guess that’s true.

Forbes magazine did this first-ever top 10 most influential personality, slash, celebrity poll, and it was not reported on in this country.  It was reported on in the UK Independent, I believe.  We had it last week.  And it showed that I am in the top 10 most influential. Most everybody else was in Hollywood, and all of the top 10 except me are involved in pictures, either movies or television.  I’m the only person that is not involved in pictures in the top 10, and I was ahead of Hillary.  Remember that?  Hillary was at number 10, and I was ahead of her in the list.  So you could say Hillary wasn’t able to change people’s thinking about Obamacare during the campaign of 2007-2008, but it looks like I, along with Fox News, have been able to do so.  So I guess that poll might have had some accuracy to it, or that ranking.

But back to the Washington Post.  We have not had any upward mobility. The American dream, in other words, according to the Washington Post, has been dead for 50 years — and this conveniently coincides with a stagnant economy that we find ourselves in after five years of Obama.  Obama’s out there claiming 44 straight months of job growth, and we got an economic rescue, and people are going back to work, and the economy is starting to hum, and… (interruption)

It does.  It sounds like a dream come true, except it isn’t happening, and now the Washington Post, in order to make sure that that is not linked exclusively to Obama, has just decided to tell us that there hasn’t really been any upward mobility in 50 years.  USA Today and the Pew Center for the People and the Press have another poll, teeing it up for Obama’s State of the Union speech on the wealth gap.  Sixty-plus percentage of everybody thinks that inequality in America is growing.

Was Elizabeth Warren right that the game is rigged?  Thirty-eight percent agree with Elizabeth Warren that the economic game in America is rigged! The thinking is “that hard work and determination were no guarantee of success,” and that coincides, does it not, with the Washington Post?  We haven’t had any upward mobility in 50 years, and, by the way, it’s got nothing to do with Obama.  This happened long before Obama!

Obama is trying to fix it!

Obama’s trying to reverse this!

By the way, when did this country come with “a guarantee of success”?  Well, I’m just bouncing off this USA Today/Pew Center poll where a sizable number of people proclaim “that hard work and determination were no guarantee of success.”  I missed that of success.  Have you heard of that guarantee?  What guarantee of success?  Hard work or any other guarantee. Where is that guarantee? (interruption) Yeah, and security, too.  Where’s that guarantee?  For anybody, for anyone in the world, but particularly here in the US?

Where is that?  Europe?  Environmentalist wackos in Europe say that climate rules, in order to head off global warming, are causing economic pain — and even at that, we’re not keeping pace with the dire warnings.  We’re not keeping pace.  We not doing what we need to do to stave off climate change, and even falling short of what we should be doing, what we’re supposed to do, we are nevertheless causing economic pain.  It’s just disastrous out there.


RUSH: T.J. in Sierra Vista, Arizona.  You’re up first today, sir.  Great to have you, and welcome.

CALLER:  Hello, Rush.  How are you today, sir?

RUSH:  I’m fine.  Thank you for calling.  Great to have you here.

CALLER:  It is a privilege to talk to you.  Listen, I am not a mathematician.  I am a Baptist preacher.  I have the privilege of pastoring the teenagers of our men and women that serve the armed forces out here at Fort Huachuca.  But, best as I can tell, if the president is right and you are the reason that his approval rating is somewhere, it’s 38, 39, 40% –

RUSH:  Yeah, that’s right.

CALLER:  — then that would mean, Rush, that you have a listenership of roughly 150 to 175 million a day.  So I just wanted to call and tell you congratulations on –

RUSH:  Yeah.

CALLER:  — being easily the most influential person in the media.  That means you’ve got more listeners than people who will watch the Super Bowl next week. That’s fantastic.

RUSH:  Well, it wouldn’t quite go that far because, I appreciate your sentiment, but I’ve always said that one must never lose perspective.  You don’t get lost in your success, and you don’t get depressed about failure, and you keep it all in an even keel.  And the fact of the matter is that Obama’s approval rating at 38, 39, 40%, this is the thing.  It’s not all due to outside influence.  The idea that people are incapable of making up their own minds about people is something that Obama and his party live with every day.

So in Obama’s world, it is Fox News and me.  That’s what he told the New Yorker.  It’s Fox News and me that are the reason the Republican base doesn’t like him.  It can’t possibly be that those people actually pay attention, they’re actually intelligent, they’re actually informed, and they actually disagree with what he’s doing.  It can’t be that.  Oh, no.  It can’t be that because you people are not that smart and you’re not that independently thinkable.  You’re not that independently intelligent.  You’re like the Democrat base.  You’re bunch of idiots, and you only know and do and believe what you’re told.  And do not doubt me.  There may be a degree of exaggeration in there, but that is exactly how the left looks at their voters, and that’s how they look at the whole population.

How else do you explain that everything to them is group and victim related?  In fact, the left can’t survive with independently self-sufficient, self-reliant people.  They aren’t needed if that ever happens, or within groups of people like that.  So they have to assume that people are mind-numbed robots.  They’ve assumed that about me from the get-go.

Now, Mr. Snerdley just said to me during the break, he said, “You’re losing touch.”

I said, “What do you mean?”

He said, “Well, this is no big deal to you.  You’ve had presidents calling you out ever since you’ve been doing this show.  You’ve had presidents and presidential candidates calling you out, and you’re used to it.  Isn’t any big deal to you.”  But he said, “To the average American, the president calling out a single individual citizen isn’t done unless that citizen happens to be an elected member of the opposition party.  This just isn’t done.  But it’s happened to you so often, you just take it for granted, it isn’t any big deal, you just mention it and you go on.”  And he said, “There’s a reason you’re in that top 10 most influential poll.  It’s exactly because of stuff like this.”

And he’s right, I have to admit.  It isn’t any big deal anymore when I see what I saw today in the New Yorker.  It isn’t.  It’s certainly not as big a deal as the first time it happened.  I’ll never forget that one.  Bill Clinton, flying into St. Louis, Air Force One.  I don’t even know if that was the first.  The first might have been when he called me out at the White House Correspondents Dinner.  It’s one of the two.  But he’s flying into St. Louis on Air Force One and he’s talking to the morning guys on our affiliate there, KMOX.  He starts complaining about me, said there’s no truth detector.  He said (paraphrasing), “Limbaugh’s gonna go on for three hours this afternoon and there’s gonna be nobody to challenge what the guy says.”

The president was complaining.  Now, that was big.  But it’s happened every year.  That was 1993 and it’s happened every year since.  And Snerdley’s right.  It isn’t that big a deal the fact that I am living free, rent free, in Obama’s head.  If you’re just joining us here’s what he said.  It’s from a New Yorker interview just posted.  Obama’s complaining about why the Republican base doesn’t like him.

“Another way of putting it, I guess, is that the issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that we’ve put in place worked better than people might think. And as long as there’s that gap between perceptions of me within the average Republican primary voter and the reality, it’s hard for folks like John Boehner to move too far in my direction.”

Why is it incumbent on Boehner to move in Obama’s direction?  Why shouldn’t Obama have to move in Boehner’s direction or our direction?  But you see, folks, the subtext of this is, if it weren’t for me or Fox News, you’d love Obama.  But you are nothing but sponges.  You are incapable, in other words, of seeing the truth.  You believe the lies about Obama that you hear from me and on Fox News.

That’s what the president’s telling David Remnick here.  And I’m telling you, to me, if I were you, I’d be insulted.  You don’t have a mind of your own.  In other words, you’re not capable of looking at 92 million Americans out of work and thinking Obama’s doing a great job.  You’re not capable of looking at the takeover of health care and the resulting disaster and not liking Obama.  You are incapable of hearing him promise you three years in a row that you get to keep your doctor and keep your plan except you can’t, and still like Obama.  You are incapable of hearing the president promise you that your premium is gonna be reduced by $2,500 a year.  And then you learn that it isn’t, but you’re still supposed to like Obama.  If it weren’t for me.

You are perhaps enable to find a career job.  You’re unable to find a job that will pay you for working more than 29 hours a week, but you’re still supposed to think Obama’s doing a great job, and you would, if it weren’t for me.  You’re incapable of seeing the disaster that has happened to this country.  And if it weren’t for me and Fox News, you would be loving on Obama like his voters are.  And again, all that means is, you can’t think for yourself, mind-numbed robot.  And so we’ve gotta do something about me and Fox News.  What are we gonna do?  Obama’s gotta find a way to reach you ’cause, you know, he’s really doing a good job. The stuff he’s put in place is working better than people might think, 44 straight months of job growth.  Wow.  And we’ve had an economic rescue.

Now, who is delusional?  Who is absent reality, you or Obama?  Imagine… Seriously, now. Imagine that you were president and you purposely put in place policies that caused all of this debt, poverty, unemployment, and the total debacle that is health care. Imagine that you are president — you’ve done it all, you’ve done it on purpose — and then imagine your surprise that people disagree with you.  What kind of person would you have to be?

Wouldn’t it make more sense if you were in Obama’s shoes, that you would understand why certain people don’t like you and disagree with you?


RUSH:  As you know, folks, I’m really uncomfortable talking about myself. Unlike Richard Sherman, I really am uncomfortable talking about my self — and that’s not a slam on Richard Sherman.  As you people know, I like Richard Sherman, and I told you. I said, “The more people get to know this guy, the more they’re gonna like him and the more impressed by him they’re going to be.”  Anyway, I’m gonna tell you what.  The reason that Obama…

This is actually not about me; it’s about you.

The reason that Obama, the media, and the rest of the left… What it is about me they really, really don’t like is that you think for yourselves.  They know it.  They may say that you are not. They may try to insult you by telling you and others that, and imply you’re just mind-numbed robots, and if it weren’t for me, you would be thinking straight, but I’ve corrupted you.  They say that, but they know because they’re politically afraid of you.

They’re afraid of independent thinkers.  They are afraid of people who are able to reason and think on their own.  That’s the main beef with me that they have is that this program inspires curiosity. It inspires thought and critical thinking, and they know they’re never gonna be able to control that. They’re never gonna be able to make you a mind-numbed robot, and you know their modus operandi; they don’t want to have a level playing field.

They want to get rid of all opposition.

They don’t want to debate the opposition.

They don’t want to argue.  They just don’t want there to be any, and they look at you and me and don’t see a way they can make that happen, not within the normal flow of things in the arena of ideas.  So it’s gonna require drastic action — such as the IRS penalizing and harassing the Tea Party, for example.  That’s exactly why that kind of thing happens.

Democrats Are Playing the Knockout Game!-Posted on American Thinker-By Fay Voshell-On January 25, 2014:

It’s no wonder there’s been so little outrage from the Left over the phenomenon known as the Knockout Game.

The Left loves the game and is increasingly expert in knocking out conservative opposition with one swift and lethal blow to the head of any and all who oppose progressivism.

We on the right have seen a rapid succession of punches aimed at taking down everyone and everything conservative. Whether it is potential presidential candidates or conservative organizations like the Tea Party, the aim is the same. Go in from behind in packs and sucker punch the unwitting victims, using governmental entities such as the IRS, the DOJ, or state AGs to deliver the fatal strikes.

It’s clear the end game has a dual purpose: Get potential presidential competitors out of the game and provide distractions from the deep and dangerous scandals afflicting the Obama administration. The attacks against “enemies” like the Tea Party also provide additional and convenient diversions that channel attention away from the disaster that is ObamaCare.

Let’s take a look at just five examples of people and organizations that are on the knockout list:

Knockout punch #1: In Virginia, former governor Robert McDonnell, was indicted on federal corruption charges scarcely ten days after leaving office. The governor, who has just been released on his own recognizance, may have been blindly obtuse when he accepted gifts. But he firmly maintains he did nothing criminal. Be that as it may, fighting the charges will knock him out of the 2016 presidential race. He was seen as a potential GOP candidate.

Knockout punch #2 is aimed at the skull of New Jersey’s Chris Christie, also seen as a frontrunner candidate for the presidency. The U.S. Attorney General has now inserted himself into the Bridgegate scandal, in which Christie has been accused of deliberately tying up traffic in order to get back at Democrat mayor Mark Sokolich, who did not endorse him for the governorship. Fighting the charges against him will take up most of Christie’s time—time he could have spent campaigning for the presidency. The knockout appears to have achieved a twofer, as Christie himself dismissed BillStepien, who had been seen as a prospective manager for the governor’s 2016 possible presidential bid.

Knockout punch #3 is aimed at Mike Huckabee, who is falsely being accused of misogyny because he said, “For Democrats to reduce women to beggars for cheap government-funded birth control is demeaning to the women that I know who are far more complicated than their libido and the management of their reproductive system.”

Jay Carney quickly deemed Huckabee’s comments as “offensive.” Look for Huckabee to be a knockout target, as he has also been cited as a potential candidate for the presidency. He will continually and incessantly berated by the Left as being “anti-woman.” The hope is that no woman in America will even think of supporting him. If that were to be the case, he would be toast.

But you don’t have to be a potential candidate for the presidency to be targeted. Democrat knockout gangs are roaming around looking for other potential victims.

One such potential victim is Dinesh D’Souza, target of Knockout punch #4. D’Souza has been charged with making illegal contributions via others and of making false statements. The leaders of the D’Souza knockout gang are the FBI and the U.S. Attorney for Manhattan, Preet Bharara, an Obama appointee who primly stated of D’Souza’s supposed criminality, “As we have long said, this Office and the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process.”

Cough, cough.

Of course the fact D’Souza directed the very successful 2012 film, 2016: Obama’s America, a work extremely critical of Obama, would have nothing to do with his indictment. Nor would punching him in the face have anything to do with interest in deterring the scheduled July 4th release of his next film. And the fact the FBI said it found no criminality in the IRS targeting of conservative organizations means its investigations into D’Souza’s affairs are completely unbiased.

Knockout Punch # 5 is directed against the conservative Hollywood organization known as “Friends of Abe.” The group is being harassed by the IRS after they applied for tax exempt status. TheHeritage Foundation writes, “According to the Timesfederal tax authorities have requested detailed information from the group about its meetings with several conservative politicians, including Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) and former presidential candidate Herman Cain. Sources say the application has been under review for two years and that the IRS requested access to Friends of Abe’s private website, which would have revealed member names.”

This is the same trustworthy IRS that was given a clean bill of health by the FBI after revelations it has been harassing conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.

There’s no doubt any knowledgeable conservatives could add to the “Knockout Punch” list. The number of the Left’s knockout targets is simply too long to review in a short essay. Certainly the targets are diverse, as they include everybody and everything opposed to the Left’s agenda. Targets include, but are not limited to the Catholic Church, “terrorist” evangelicals, parents who home school, owners of guns, dissenters in academia and on and on.

The list of the Democrats’ potential victims is longer than the number of Don Juan’s conquests, which in Spain alone numbered 1,003. That number probably pales in significance to the number of potential knockout victims on whose backs Democrats have a big bull’s eye painted.

But in the meantime, conservatives of all stripes wonder where the indictments on the IRS targeting of conservatives are. They wonder why there have been no charges filed over the “Fast and Furious” scandal and the Benghazi debacle. They wonder why there have been no consequences for the outrageous actions and inactions of Harry Reid, Eric Holder or Kathleen Sebelius; why there has been no investigation of the Solyndra debacle and why there never seem to be any lasting and effectual investigations into our president’s imperial ambitions and behavior.

But wondering aside, those on the right can see there’s a clearly recognizable motive driving the Democrats’ vicious targeting of conservative candidates for the presidency and conservative organizations in general. 
It’s called “vengeance.”

Democrats are afflicted with it and are hell bent on exacting it.

Republicans should recall the words of Valerie Jarrett, who is often considered the brains behind the Obama administration:

“After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded; the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”

Our president indicated his contempt for congress and a desire to bypass and get back at his opposition when he said, “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone—and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward.” His statement is right in line with his “I won; you lost” mentality. Losers get ignored or punished.

Andrew Cuomo, for all his attempts to “contextualize” his recent comments about “extremist” conservatives, actually declared New York had no room for any who opposing his radical agenda. He said of those who were against his proposed gun control legislation: “Their problem is not me and Democrats. Their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives, who are right to life, pro assault weapon, anti-gay. Is that who they are? Because if that is who they are, and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York. Because that is not who New Yorkers are.”

Valerie Jarrett, President Obama, and Governor Cuomo: We get the message.

We understand the knockout game. We may even go down after a sucker punch to the head.

But we conservatives have a way of picking ourselves back up and continuing the fight. We will remain bloodied but not bowed. We will rise and fight again, not out of vengeance, but out of a deep love for our wonderful nation and for the principles on which she was founded.

We will fight for love of God, our fellow citizens and our country.

Love will trump vengeance every time.

Narcissism Part of Presidential Job Description, Professor Says!-Posted on Barbara Boland-On January 24, 2014:

( – Narcissism, an inflated positive view of oneself not consistent with actual achievement, is on the rise in America, particularly in positions of leadership or power, according to Dr. W. Keith Campbell, author of “Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement.”

“You see higher levels [of narcissism] on reality television and higher levels in presidents, because I think that’s almost part of the job description now,” Campbell, a professor of psychology at the University of Georgia and the author of over one hundred scientific articles, told

Campbell was one of the researchers on a study where historians measured levels of narcissism in U.S. presidents, “The Double-Edged Sword of Grandiose Narcissism: Implications for Su....”

“A lot of the way we develop political leadership now, it’s almost a celebrity process. So it’s going to strengthen narcissism,” Campbell said. And in reality TV, “you don’t need talent, but you need a lot of notoriety,” and that draws narcissists in.

Campbell pointed to the self-esteem movement and parenting techniques that reward children for “being wonderful” as opposed to accomplishment, false inflation of egos and grades with no correlation to educational attainment, as a turning point that begat the explosion of narcissism in America.

Narcissistic people think they’re smarter, more important, and better looking than everyone else – even though in reality they are average. They may have a lot of friends who know them on a superficial level (like Facebook), but they don’t have empathy for others, and they spend a lot of time trying to gain attention. They look for ways that will make them look good so they can gain attention and positive regard, Campbell said.

In a May 20, 2013 article titled, “The Me Me Me Generation,” TIME magazine reported, “The incidence of narcissistic personality disorder is nearly three times as high for people in their 20s as for the generation that’s now 65 or older, according to the National Institutes of Health; 58% more college students scored higher on a narcissism scale in 2009 than in 1982.

Campbell’s study, which ended with President George W. Bush, found that levels of narcissism in presidents are also on the rise. It found the highest level for Lyndon Johnson, followed by Teddy Roosevelt, Andrew Jackson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Richard Nixon.

“There have been some massive egos in the White House,” Campbell said.

Although one can find narcissists in leadership in business and in the military, Campbell speculated that there are more narcissists in the White House, because there is a much shorter vetting process.
