PALIN AND THE PROMISE OF AMERICA'S FUTURE Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Wednesday, 10 September 2008

Today, the seventh anniversary of the Islamofascist attack on America of September 11, 2001, we look back to commemorate the lives of our fellow Americans taken by Moslem terrorism on that horrible day.

We need also to look back in deepest gratitude for President George Bush and all those in his administration whose Herculean efforts to prevent another such attack upon us have succeeded.  It is an incredible accomplishment.

Having done so, today is also a good time to look forward, to reflect upon the vastly different futures America faces, based upon what choice her voters make 54 days from now.

I won't waste much time on the disaster that future would be for both America and the world should that choice be Barack Hussein Obama.  Government spending and taxes would explode, the Dow would fall off a cliff, every dirtbag dictator in the world from Putin to Chavez would expand their power as America became indistinguishable from Euroweenia.

I could go on adding to this list of calamities foreign and domestic, but we needn't bother, though, because this future is not going to happen.  America's future lies with Sarah Palin and not a lightweight loser who will be lucky to carry California.

So let's look at what the promise of that future might be.

SARAHCUDA VS. THE PIAPS: SMACKDOWN IN THE SENATE Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Tuesday, 09 September 2008

Did you know that Slow Joe Biden is up for re-election?  Yes, he's running simultaneously for Vice-President and the Senate.  You'd think it would have to be one or the other.

He's not campaigning much for his seat, as his Republican opponent is some right-wing small town attractive housewife no one every heard of.  Does Christine O'Donnell remind you of anyone?

Christine may become known as the Sarah Palin of Delaware soon, once the two join forces at a campaign rally in the Blue Hen state.

As you read this, every Republican House and Senate candidate in the country is begging for Sarah to campaign for them.  There's no way she has time to help out all but a small handful of House hopefuls, so she'll be concentrating on the Senate's.

For very good reason.  As Vice-President, constitutionally she'll be President of the Senate.

GLOBAL WARMING AND BLACK HOLES: THE PARANOIA CONNECTION Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 11 September 2008

That the Farmer's Almanac is now predicting global cooling is a pretty good indication that the glo-warming hysteria is coming to an end.  The "warming crisis" the media has incessantly tried to shove down people's throats is of little concern to voters.  All polls show it is at or near the bottom of voter concerns, and it is rarely addressed by politicians seeking their votes.

Which may help to explain the media's current attempt at paranoia-mongering:  spreading fears that the entire earth may be swallowed up by a man-made black hole in Switzerland.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) near Geneva is the largest and most complex machine ever built.  Physicists hope to simulate the conditions of the "Big Bang" that created the universe.  Such a simulation, the worry goes, could create a tiny black hole that could suck in nearby matter, growing with incredible speed and size until it sucked in and destroyed our entire planet.

Here are two reasons why the paranoia is misplaced and will have to wander off to find another target.

WHY IS OBAMA WEARING LIPSTICK? Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Friday, 12 September 2008

Immediately after Sen. Barack Hussein Obama committed his now-notorious "lipstick on a pig" gaffe, the McCain campaign demanded he apologize for the remark, and rushed out a Web ad (meaning it was meant for YouTube, not paid television) criticizing him for making it.

CBS News yesterday (9/11) forced YouTube to pull McCain's "Lipstick" Ad because it contained an unauthorized clip of Katie Kouric.  No matter - it was already seen by its target audience.

That ad shows the genius of what the McCain campaign is doing.  

Whether its outrage was real or faux over the lipstick gaffe, the McCain campaign has Sen. Obama looking rattled, talking about the Republican candidate for vice president instead of talking about issues that might win him votes.  

That's why the Lipstick Web Ad was designed for an audience of one - The One -  and it worked.  Sen. McCain is so far inside Sen. Obama's OODA loop that I almost feel sorry for him.  Very almost.

THE MEDIA IS A SEWER Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Tuesday, 09 September 2008

"We need to throw every last molecule of s**t we've got at McCain and Palin," said a poster at the Democratic Underground blog.  "Demonize them.  Dehumanize them."

Panic brings out the ugliness in ugly people.  And ugliness of this sort is not restricted to moonbat bloggers.

"In the press galleries at the convention, journalists wrinkled their noses in disgust when Piper, Ms. Palin's youngest daughter, was filmed kitty-licking her baby brother's hair in place," wrote David Carr in the New York Times Sunday.

How dark must your soul be for you to be "disgusted" by a six-year-old girl who is behaving lovingly toward her baby brother?

News organizations have flooded Alaska with investigative reporters, hoping to dig up something -- anything -- bad to say about Sarah Palin.  As mayor of Wasilla in 1996, did she try to ban from the public library books that weren't published until 1998? 

The sewer that is the left-wing blogosphere is pumping its bilge directly into the "mainstream" media.

THE LEFT'S HATRED OF RELIGION EXPOSED Print E-mail
Written by Ralph Peters   
Friday, 12 September 2008

Nothing in recent memory has driven home the divide between our self-appointed aristocracy and "commoners" as sharply as the intelligentsia's rush to mock Gov. Sarah Palin's religious faith.

While the attacks and insults are backfiring on the mortified elites, the double standard applied to "Sarah America" is a disgrace that can't be excused as "just politics."

Certainly, much of the left-wing fury over Palin stems from the Democrat Party's assumption that it "owned" the exclusive right to nominate women to the executive branch (despite the crushing of Hillary Clinton's candidacy). How dare the Republicans advance a woman? How dare they change this year's election script?

But the root of the left's dread of this happily married mother of five seems to be that she actually believes in God. Washington fears faith - even nominal believers inside the Beltway have been shaped by secular educations and secular caste values.

Humans fear what they can't understand, and our comfortable ruling class just can't comprehend the power and the glory, the beauty and the ecstasy, the awe and commitment experienced by those who believe in a divine power. To paraphrase the late Leona Helmsley, "Faith is for the little people."

GRIT VS. COPOUT: MCCAIN-PALIN VS. OBAMA-BIDEN Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Joel Wade   
Friday, 12 September 2008

Nobody ever wishes for genuine hard times. Given a choice between difficult times and pleasurable times, all else being equal, most of us would opt for pleasurable times.

But we are made for adversity, we are at our best when we have to deal with difficulties and challenges that we can meet, and we are most satisfied when we are faced with tough times, and come through them with strength and dignity.

This is one reason why we do not need the government to take care of all of our problems. We need our problems. A person needs adversity and challenge in order to create a meaningful and purposeful life. But we can expect also to gripe and whine about it from time to time along the way, because as much as we need adversity and challenge, we often want things to be easy.

This is the beauty of the contrast we have before us in the presidential election this year. On the one hand, we have Barrack Obama and Joe Biden, who represent the side of human nature that favors letting someone else - in this case the government - ease your burdens and heal your wounds for you.

On the other hand we have John McCain and Sarah Palin, who know full well - both of them - that a good life comes from dealing with adversity, rising to the challenges of life with grace, love and humor, and coming out the other side with dignity and a sense that you have done your best.

CONGRESS AND THE ECONOMY Print E-mail
Written by Richard Rahn   
Thursday, 04 September 2008

If Sen. Barack Hussein Obama is elected president of the United States, do you know what will happen to federal tax rates and government spending?

If you answered "yes," then you have not been paying attention, because Mr. Obama and his advisers keep changing what they say they are going to do.

Even more importantly, under the U.S. Constitution, Congress has the sole power to tax and appropriate funds, not the president. Congress always rewrites presidential tax and spending proposals, even when the president and congressional majority are of the same party, and hence no president gets to dictate fiscal policy.

The questions we should be asking are: What changes is Congress likely to make in the tax law, the level of spending, and energy policy if Mr. Obama is elected, and likewise if Sen. John McCain is elected?  This table shows what happened to the economy during the past quarter of a century when each party controlled (or shared control of) Congress:

HALF-FULL REPORT 09/05/08 Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Friday, 05 September 2008

To call this a half-full report this week would be ridiculous.  Even an "overflowingly full report" wouldn't come close.  Think of that famous picture of the Spindletop oil gusher, only it's a gusher of good news.  That's more like it.

The gusher starts with the world's most famous woman.  Mark this week as when Omania fizzled out.  O stands for Over.  There's little to add about Sarah right now except to stand back in awe, and contemplate the blessings of Providence upon America.

That, and order a case of Alaska IPA, a great beer brewed in Juneau within sight of Governor Palin's office...

... Onto Russia.  While Euroweenia is proclaiming Czar Putin to be the world's most powerful man, smart folks here in DC are examining his many vulnerabilities.  Russia needs to be broken apart like the Soviet Union...

... For three years - since September 2005! - you've known why man-made global warming is a myth.  Solar Warming explained the mechanism of warming, of how the sun's magnetic activity (of which sun spots are a sign) effects cloud formation on earth.

The bottom line is:  no sun spots mean a cooler earth, lots of sun spots mean a warmer earth.

This week, astronomers announced that for the first time in 100 years, an entire month has passed without a single sunspot.  This is bad news for advocates of the glo-warming religion, and thus good news for advocates of freedom from fascist control over our lives.  But it's also bad news for our planet.

PROTECTING AMERICA'S SWEETHEART Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 04 September 2008

America - real America - is in love.  I know I sure am, and I have a lot of company.  Yes, it's platonic love.  After all, she's married and faithful (and so am I!).  Nonetheless, I, like so many millions of Americans, have fallen head over heels in love with Sarah Palin.  She is America's Sweetheart. 

Say goodnight, Bar..., Ber..., Buh..., what's that guy's name again?

That guy is so, like, over.  So yesterday, like the tax-and-spend welfare state liberal-leftie cant he espouses.  Obambi represents the past.  Sarah represents the future.

Which is why my deepest, most passionate desire regarding Sarah Palin is that President Bush order a doubling of the Secret Service detail to protect her.  And then we provide some backup.

The pathologically deranged smears of the hate-America moonbats this week have only served to increase enthusiasm and sympathy for her.  The moonbats are in a state of panicked rage because they rightly see in her the capacity to destroy all the myths that give meaning to their angry little lives.

Which means their vicious verbal attacks on her person are going to turn physical.  There are going to be attempts on her life. I don't want to bum out the celebrating, the elation, the thrill over Sarah - but she has got to be protected.

RONALD REAGAN IN A DRESS Print E-mail

Thursday, 04 September 2008

"You arrogant ass.  You've killed us!"  So said the executive officer of a Soviet submarine to his captain in Tom Clancy's novel "Red October" after the captain had recklessly fired a torpedo that homed in on his own sub.

NBC's David Gregory must have had similar thoughts as he noted, ruefully, that the news media's assault on Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin boosted substantially the television audience for her acceptance speech Wednesday night.

No friend of Barack Hussein Obama -- and this last week has demonstrated he has no better, nor more unscrupulous, friends than those in the news media -- can be happy about that.

Last night (8/03), her enemies learned firsthand why her nickname is "Sarah Barracuda."  With a smile on her face, Ms. Palin sliced and diced Obama with the skill she dresses a moose she just shot.

THE FRONTIERSWOMAN Print E-mail
Written by Michael Ledeen   
Thursday, 04 September 2008

For the first time in memory, we have a major candidate who comes from the frontier, and it's not surprising that the pundits are having a hard time coming to grips with this phenomenon.

Sarah Palin is a frontierswoman. Her state capital, Juneau, cannot be reached on the highways of Alaska. If you want to get there, you must either fly or sail. And for much of the year, sailing isn't smart. No subways in Juneau, but lots of bars. The main bookstore caters mostly to the tourist trade, with a small selection of used paperbacks and a few recent best sellers.

It's not so much authenticity as independence and self-reliance, which have always been the basic characteristics of frontier people. They think for themselves. They have to think outside the box, because there's no available box for them to think in.

If they accepted the conventional wisdom they wouldn't be on the frontier, they'd be in some city and they'd brag about their degrees from the failed institutions of higher education. They're not big on "conflict resolution," they prefer zero-sum games. If you go up against a grizzly, you're poorly advised to look for a win-win solution.

MEANING AND PURPOSE FOR THE RIGHT AND THE LEFT Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Joel Wade   
Monday, 01 September 2008

When you have something that absorbs your attention and gives you goals to aim for, you have a sense of purpose. When you have something that matters to you, usually involving other people and/or a sense of something larger than yourself, you have a sense of meaning.

Meaning and purpose are important concepts - crucial to living a happy and successful life. But the central and sometimes frustrating feature of both is that they are earned over time, through searching, through focus and commitment to your work, your family, your friends, your faith, and the activities that you find bring you a deep sense of satisfaction.

But there is a cheap and easy path to a more short-term and fragile sense of meaning and purpose, and it's part of human nature for people to take it.  That path is:  following the Great Leader.

There is a difference between admiring a leader who is also a hero on the one hand - as I do with a man like Ronald Reagan or General Petraeus - or on the other hand "crying your eyelashes off" (Oprah) or "getting a tingle up your leg" (Chris Matthews) from an Obama speech.

The difference, I think, lies in your relationship to the philosophy of individualism.
