swallowing Palin satire

“I have to keep reminding myself that liberals are the deep thinkers 
in the room. Once again, they have been taken in by a satire involving 
their favorite target, 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, 
and once again they have played the “stupid” card — unwittingly on 
themselves. This time, the subject is Malaysia Flight 370.”

House Republican Leaders To Meet 

With Soro’s Funded 

Anti-Conservative Group

House Speaker John Boehner and other Republican leaders are 

planning a little jaunt with a “Republican” group devoted to 

defeating conservatives. It’s almost like they want to lose 

in November.

Next weekend, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, and 

twenty-five other members of Congress are flying to Amelia Island 

to collaborate with a group dedicated to defeating 

conservatives in Congress.

“The group is funded in part by groups backed by George Soros 
and labor unions. La Tourette said last year that his goal is to “beat 
the snot” out of the tea party. And as I mentioned before, he’s a

The “Free Flow of Information Act of 2013”


Silencing the New Media


By Douglas V. Gibbs

The proposal by Feinstein, coupled with the Obama 

Administration’s decision to give control of the Internet to 

unspecified international sources, places the free voice of 

citizen journalists at risk. In a world where speech has become 

a hate crime if one does not adhere to the political correctness 

enforced by a culture descending into debauchery and immorality, 

free speech considered “dangerous”, “hateful” or “offensive” 

becomes a target. Through licensing, and through the governance 

of the web by organizations or persons that believe themselves to 

be the arbiter of worldwide political correctness, those that support 

leftist ideas will be able to make sure those examples of free 

speech vanishes…

‘Willing to Go to Jail’: Politician Delivers

Judge’s Order and Uttering a Christian Prayer

“I’m willing to go to jail over it. I believe this is a fundamental of 
America and if we cease to believe that our rights come from God, 
we cease to be America,” she said. “We’ve been told to be careful. 
But we’re going to be careful all the way to communism if we

Powerbocking: jump like a kangaroo,

No-one will ever catch you on foot, unless they've got them, too (Photo: pro-jump.co.uk)

They’re enough to fulfill anyone’s dreams of bionic powers: jump 

six feet in the air (and over cars, if you’re in the mood), run at 25 

miles an hour or more, and stride nine feet at a time. But, instead 

of costing Six Million Dollars, you can invest in a pair of

Obama: Demoting Russia, Denying the Obvious

by Clio

Barack Obama just demoted Russia from “global super-power” to “regional power.”

Yesterday’s verbal blunder at The Hague is just dumbfounding…

Fielding questions at the Nuclear Security Summit, Mr. Obama responded to reporters about Russia, Mitt Romney and America’s place as the pre-eminent world power:

[America is] “…the most powerful nation in the world” and one that other countries looked to in order to take the lead on global crises such as the conflict in Syria,” Obama proclaimed.

Such might have been the case, before he took office, but a series of foreign policy missteps and failures in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt and Syria (for example) have eroded global and domestic faith in our national military strength.

When asked about Gov. Mitt Romney’s assertion that Russia was our primary geopolitical foe during the third debate in 2012, Mr. Obama deflected by insulting Russia and Pres. Putin – ostensibly to counter his embarrassment over the vindication of Gov. Romney’s assessment of the Russian threat.

One can only characterize Obama’s posturing as a weak attempt at diminishing Gov. Romney’s post-election popularity and viewpoints – not prescient, just well-founded analyses.

As Gov. Romney pointed out, evaluating Russia’s past behavior, i.e. Georgia and current relationships with Syria (Putin wiped away Obama’s fuzzy ‘red line’ and gave Syria a solution to appease criticism) and support of other global ‘bad actors’ help one to understand that Putin’s intentions are far from benign.

It was simply puerile for Obama to use this global platform to lick his narcissistic wounds.

“America’s got a whole lot of challenges.” Russia, Obama added, “is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors, not out of strength, but out of weakness…”

Weakness? Just a “regional power”?

Russia is ranked a close second only to the U.S. in both military and nuclear capabilities (www.globalfirepower.com). If Obama dismisses Russia as just a ‘regional power,’ what does that tell the world about the power of the U.S.?

He went on to brag that ‘We have considerable influence over our neighbors” … One wonders how Canada and Mexico feel about that statement?

We should be shocked by Obama’s lack of political and diplomatic maturity. It’s not merely a matter of partisan politics – it’s very relevant to our safety and reputation in the world (a reputation that has been weakened and tarnished in the past five years).

When Mitt Romney went abroad in 2012, the foreign press was quick to judge his comments as “gaffes,” implying as if the Harvard Law and Business School graduate, successful businessman, savior of the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics and former governor of Massachusetts was incapable of forming coherent thoughts.

While we know little about Mr. Obama’s college performance or his experience as a community organizer, candidate Obama received a much different reception during his 2008 European tour. Greeted by large, adoring crowds, “rock star” Obama accepted lavish and effusive praise by heads of state and local media. He then won the Nobel Peace Prize despite an utter void of actual achievements.

How time and the lack of a convenient teleprompter can alter one’s perception.

What Obama Sounds Like to …

by Robert Arvay

What Obama sounds like to himself:

Hey. You. Putin. Yeah you, you slimy Russky boy. Get out of Ukraine now. Do it. I am the one guy you do not want to mess with. I’ll knock you into next week.

What Obama sounds like to liberals:

Mr Putin, you are making a grave error.  The cold war is over. We had a reset, remember? This is a time for negotiations.  Please, give back Crimea and let’s all have a group hug.

What Obama sounds like to conservatives:

Aw, come on, Putie.  You’re making me look bad.  Please give back Crimea . Please? Pretty please? After all I’ve done for you, disarming our missile shield and being nice to you—please?

What Obama sounds like to our allies:

Go ahead, Mr Putin, you win. Take Crimea . Take the Balkans while you’re at it—and you are indeed at it. We all know that. Peace in our time.

What Obama sounds like to Putin:

Bleh, bleh-bleh bleh, yada yada blah blah, waa haa.

There will be Consequences

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

How many clichés are needed to express what we feel, as we witness the descent of America? A train wreck? The fall of Rome? The cowardice of Darius?Darius’ flight at the Battle of Gaugamela

It should now be clear to everyone that the emperor has no clothes. Obama’s string of policy failures is astonishingly obvious to all but the deniers. His domestic crown jewel, ObamaCare, is destroying a health care system that needed reform, not demolition. His economic policy is to spend money we do not have, to borrow more than we can repay, and to print fiat money that is less valuable with every new round of printing. (“Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value – zero.” [Voltaire, 1694-1778]).

Obama’s foreign policy has weakened America and its allies, while empowering and emboldening our enemies. Events in Libya, Iran, Syria, and now Ukraine (among a dismally long list of others) have revealed to the world that Obama is a craven coward, one who speaks loudly, but carries no stick. Like a loudmouth who makes bold threats, and then runs squealing at the first sign of his opponent’s clenched fist, Barack Obama is the modern version of the Persian emperor Darius, who “led from behind,” who ordered thousands of his soldiers to their deaths, and then fled the battlefield in terror when Alexander (the not yet Great) outflanked him.

As Putin the Terrible calculates his next flanking move on the global chess board, Obama continues to make empty threats about supposed “consequences,” evoking from our enemies neither respect nor fear, but only derision and laughter. Checkmate. Our former allies, disheartened by Obama’s treacheries against them, are quickly abandoning us.

The danger in all of this is that eventually, the middle-ground options will disappear, and only the extreme options will remain available. The middle ground, negotiations from weakness, will be pointless. The extreme options are surrender or war. Surrender will be unacceptable. War will be disastrous, but inevitable, and the only question will be, will we win that war, or lose everything?

How did such a dreary condition come about? How did the nation of The American Revolution, the Great Depression and the Greatest Generation become a nation ruled by drug-addled former hippies who promised to halt the rise of the oceans? One can well argue that more than half of Americans believe in political tooth fairies.

Astonishingly large numbers of us “hope” for “change.” Too many of us fall for vague promises of saving the planet, enforcing income equality and taxing the rich to pay for futile dreams. Too many of us believe that confiscating guns from law abiding citizens will protect us from criminals. Obsessions with Hollywood celebrities have given them a platform to persuade voters that the unconstitutional freedom of same-sex marriage is more important than the constitutional freedoms of free speech, freedom of religion, and property rights.

Perhaps we have cursed ourselves. Perhaps it is too late to prevent the looming disaster. We are reduced to the faint hope that from the ruins of a once-great nation, there will emerge a brighter future.

As Obama might have warned us, there will be consequences.

The “Concept” of Private Property Rights

by Joseph Beverly, Guest Contributor

As you know, the concept of private property rights and unreasonable search by government agents are clearly spelled out in the Constitution of the USA. Unfortunately, too many Americans are unfamiliar with these Constitutional protections and the consequences of their violation.

Furthermore, the mainstream media is not interested in educating the public on these principles and their benefits. To make matters worse, many journalists have been educated in liberal institutions that promote de facto Marxist/Fabian-Socialist/Liberal-Leftist ideologies that idealize centralized government control of society by government elites.

The so-called Progressives have been gradually moving ignorant segments of our population in the direction of these quasi-Communist concepts for over 100 years, since the days of Teddy Roosevelt. It has currently climaxed with the election of the Obama/Reid/Pelosi/Clinton/Dem-Party cabal. And even the Republican Party is tilting in the direction of many populist, quasi-Communist ideas.

Too many Americans do not know their history, which clearly demonstrates that the keys to a flourishing economy; plentiful, good-paying jobs; and individual prosperity for the greatest number . . . is a competitive, cooperative, free-market, free-enterprise, private-property, balanced-trade, entrepreneurial, innovative, personal-initiative, profit-motivated, moral, law-and-order, low-tax, decentralized economic and political system . . . where private companies and enterprises exist, and people freely produce, to meet the needs, wants and expectations of their customers, clients, employees, suppliers, communities, creditors, shareholders, and future generations − in that order of priority. And this must be accomplished at a price/cost ratio sufficient to support the ongoing and balanced needs of their free-enterprises and their suppliers . . . and adequate to provide investors and creditors with an attractive return on their invested capital . . . and sufficient to offset the implicit risk of supporting the financial needs of businesses and their stakeholders.

Free market, competitive, Constitutional Capitalism is a time-proven economic and political system that benefits the greatest number. . . based on freedom, natural law, and the private ownership of the means of production and distribution of goods . . . characterized by free, competitive markets, motivation-by-profit, and safety nets for those who cannot care for themselves.

In a Marxist/Socialist oriented economy, many of these functions and forces are taken over by centralized government elites, bureaucrats, and complacent job-fillers, who can’t possibly provide the collective wisdom, experience and motivation of liberated businesspersons, entrepreneurs, innovators, and workers . . . producing in a competitive, cooperative, free-market, free-enterprise, low-tax, private-property, “sky’s-the-limit,” financially-responsible, Constitutional, Capitalistic economy.

A Danger of Cosmic Proportions

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

There is a growing conflict between the opposing world views of global-warmists and climate-change skeptics that threatens to politicize science.

A recent public comment by an esteemed scientist, Neil de Grasse Tyson, host of the renewed television series, Cosmos, gave an indication of how severely this conflict might be waged. Dr Tyson stated that in science, certain scientific facts are so firmly settled that no time should be wasted on hearing challenges to them. The straw target that was used was the “flat earth” argument. While this author agrees that the flat earth argument is absurd, Tyson’s assertion might be interpreted to imply that the mainstream scientific establishment itself might claim infallibility when its most cherished precepts are challenged, even when the challenge is based on reason, fact and the scientific method. Dissenters could be dismissed as “flat earthers,” subject to ridicule and censorship.

Tyson himself would not likely promote this implication, as indicated by his quote, “We spend the first year of a child’s life teaching it to walk and talk and the rest of its life to shut up and sit down. There’s something wrong there.” Despite Tyson’s disavowal of this practice, the politicization of science has become a very real danger. It occurred in the old Soviet Union, and there are accusations from both sides of the political spectrum that it is occurring now in the United States and other western countries.

A prominent example of this involves the phenomenon of climate change. While everyone might agree that the earth’s climate regularly changes, the political argument is that social policy must be adjusted on the basis that climate change is (1) harmful, (2) caused by human industry, and (3) can be remedied by very intrusive government regulation. The argument is acceptable, when both sides can be heard. It is not acceptable when the opposing side is branded by the other as “deniers,” a clear reference to Nazi sympathizers. It is not so much the name-calling, but the implication that the other side must be regarded as inherently evil and therefore must be silenced, that poses the danger.

Creationists are considered by many secularists to be in the same category as “deniers,” and their argument has been effectively squelched in public education. The censorship has gone beyond merely preventing fringe creationist views from being printed in textbooks. It has gone so far as to censor, in some quarters, any and all challenges to natural-materialist doctrine concerning evolution, even when those challenges are presented by established scientists.

While science should not be democratized, neither should it be “doctrinalized” in the manner it is becoming. The risk of locking out the next great advance in science is only increased when censorship replaces open discourse.

Dr Tyson makes a good point when he says that science is “true whether or not you believe in it.” As history has shown, however, sometimes scientific “truth” is not what scientists have said it was. When dissenters are slandered, even when flat earthers are slandered, it is not science that is advanced, but ideology.

How much more of this can we take?

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

Wave after wave, outrage after outrage, slams into us, yet we have not risen up in rebellion.

Consider the case of Lois Lerner, among many others. She says she did nothing wrong, then refuses to testify on the grounds that if she does so, she might incriminate herself.

We respect the Fifth Amendment, but that amendment was intended to prevent abuse by the government against citizens. It is an amendment intended to shield the public from government abuse, not to shield the government from its criminal acts of abuse against the public.

IRS bureaucrats are unionized. Union rules protect IRS bureaucrats from answering to us, their employers. Union rules? Who was it that signed our names to this outrageous agreement with a union which seeks not to protect the public, but rather, to protect those who abuse the public? Who did this? Yes, IRS workers should be protected, but we who pay their wages deserve equal protection from them, when they abuse us. What kind of “system” permits this?

Obama Gets Tough With Putin (Humor)


(Robert Arvay is a Contributing Writer to The Patriot’s Notepad)


Today, Barack Obama sent Vladimir Putin a strongly worded letter of protest concerning Putin’s actions in Ukraine . Here is the letter.


Dear Vladimir:

This is a strongly worded letter of protest concerning your actions in Ukraine . I demand that you stop immediately, or else face the consequences. I warn you that the consequences will be severe. If you do not stop right now, then I will be forced to send you an even more strongly worded letter of protest concerning your actions in Ukraine. And if you still do not stop, then I will keep on sending you strongly worded letters of protest concerning your actions in Ukraine. And if you do not stop even then, then I warn you, there is no limit to the number of strongly worded letters of protest concerning your actions in Ukraine that I can send. There will be no end to these letters until you stop doing whatever it is that people say you are dong in whatever place that is that people call Ukraine . See there. I got tough with you. So there.


Your flexible president,


PS:  This time I really mean it.
