Could the GOP-E have twisted Roberts arm into voting with the liberals? I found all the coordinated spin coming from some of the so-called conservative pundits (Erikkson, Krauthammer, etc) yesterday disturbing. I think the GOP-E (headed up by the Romney Campaign) told Roberts to vote with the liberals so they could keep 0bamacare as a campaign issue and use it to garner conservative support. The Holder contempt vote was just to placate conservatives over the 0bamacare fiasco. The elites (in both parties) have scripted this thing imo....

The timing of the ObamaCare SCOTUS ruling, right before the July 4th holiday... it's high time for a do-over: The Declaration of Independence.

I have to hand it to Obama and his administration - they set out to fundamentally transform this country to what they want and they are stopping at absolutely nothing to get it done....Obama has no respect for the Constitution and he’s successfully shredded it.

A Landslide Mandate For Change

A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!

We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.

The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and people’s unity.

There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.

The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming

Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:

Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.

In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.

We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.

We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.

In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.

Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.

Isn’t it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?

Can’t we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?

And isn’t the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system – a system steeped in racism – no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?

All these things are within reach now!

The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Manufactured Crisis
[Obama's strategy for destroying the economy]

frontpage.americandaughter.com
| August 31, 2008 | Jim Simpson

Liberals self-righteously wrap themselves in the mantle of public spirit. They ardently promote policies promising to deliver the poor and oppressed from their latest misery — policies which can only find solution in the halls of government. But no matter what issue one examines, over the last fifty plus years, the liberal prescription has almost always been a failure.

Why is this so? Why does virtually every liberal scheme result in ever-increasing public spending while conditions seem to get continually worse? There are a number of reasons:

  1. The programs usually create adverse incentives. This is especially true in so-called “anti-poverty” programs. The beneficiaries find government subsidies a replacement for, rather than a supplement to, gainful employment and eventually become incapable of supporting themselves. This in turn creates a dependent culture with its attendant toxic behaviors which demand still more government “remedies.”
  2. The programs create their own industry, complete with scads of “think tanks” and “experts” who survive on government research grants. These are the aptly named “Beltway Bandits.”
  3. They create their own bureaucracies, whose managers conspire with interested members of Congress to continually increase program funding, regardless of merit.
  4. Members of Congress secure votes and campaign donations by extorting them from beneficiaries of such programs, either through veiled threats — “vote for me or those mean Republicans will wipe out your benefits” — or promises of still more bennies.

In short, all develop a vested interest in the program’s survival. But if the result is always more and more government, of government, by government, and for government, with no solution in sight, then why do liberals always see government as the solution rather than the problem?

Similarly, liberals use government to promote legislation that imposes mandates on the private sector to provide further benefits for selected groups. But the results are even more disastrous. For example, weighing the laws or stacking the courts to favor unions may provide short term security or higher pay for unionized labor, but has ultimately resulted in the collapse of entire domestic industries.

Another example is health care. The Dems are always trying to impose backdoor socialized medicine with incremental legislation. Why do you suppose American healthcare is in such crisis? Answer: the government has already become too deeply involved. For example, many hospitals are closing their doors because they are overwhelmed with the burden of caring for indigent patients, illegal immigrants and vagrants who must, by law, be admitted like everyone else, despite the fact that they cannot pay for services. Read about it here — Destroying Our Health Care. The net result is reduced availability of care for everyone, exactly the opposite of what liberals claim to want.

To further complicate things, liberal jurists and lawyers have created new theories of liability that utilize the legal system as a means to further redistribute income. This too, has resulted in higher costs and prices in affected industries, higher insurance costs, or in some cases, complete elimination of products or services.

Liberals’ endless pursuit of “rights” for different groups also does little but create increasing divisions in our society. Liberal policy pits old against young, men against women, ethnic and racial groups against one another, even American citizens against illegal aliens, all in the name of “equality.” The only result is anger, tension and equal misery for all.

How does any of this improve our lot?

Finally, when companies relocate overseas to avoid the high cost of unionized labor and heavy domestic regulation, liberals sarcastically excoriate them for “outsourcing” America. Yet, when it comes to certain domestic industries, liberals in Congress suddenly become free marketers and choose to buy from overseas contractors rather than domestic suppliers. This happened most recently with a huge military contract being outrageously awarded to the heavily subsidized European consortium, AIRBUS, over America’s own Boeing. Since liberals claim to be so determined to “save the American worker,” what gives?

You have to take a step further back and ask some fundamental questions. Why is the liberal public policy record one of such unmitigated disaster? I mean, even the worst batter hits one occasionally. No one bats zero. No one that is, except liberals.

Prior to the Republican takeover in Congress in 1994, Democrats had over fifty years of virtually unbroken power in Congress with substantial majorities most of the time. With all the time and money in the world — trillions spent — they couldn’t fix a single thing, not one. Today’s liberal has the same complaints, and the same old tired solutions. Can a group of smart people, studying issue after issue for years on end, with virtually unlimited resources at their command, not come up with a single policy that works? Why are they chronically incapable?

Why?

When things go bad all the time, despite the best efforts of all involved, I suggest to you something else is at work — something deeper, more malevolent.

I submit to you that it is not a mistake, the failure is deliberate!

There is a method to the madness, and the method even has a name: the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It was first elucidated in the 1960s by a pair of radical leftist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven:

The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis…. …the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

[Part II of this article will explore those organizations created to implement the Cloward-Piven strategy and their ties to the presidential candidacy of Barack Obama.]

I guess I’m in the minority here in thinking this ruling is a win on so many levels. While Justice Arnold sold us out, he did what thousands of conservatives, libertarians, freedom thinkers have not been able to do before: show in a stunning way that the game we’ve been playing is rigged.

You can’t win a rigged game. You can only try to change the rules or pick up your marbles and go.

Well, the good thing is, Beck is back on Philly Radio - 106.9 FM, followed by Rush at noon and then Hannity - just like the old lineup on Philly WPHT 1210 AM before CBS purged their stations.

But yeah, I know what you mean - I enjoyed seeing him on Fox and watching the reaction of the commie retards to every word he uttered.

We will never see repeal of most of this.

Unless Captain Romnoid sweeps into office with a filibuster proof majority in the Senate, there's no way a repeal happens.

I still don’t understand why anyone seriously thinks the bill will be repealed? Don’t people pay attention to the way things have worked and are working?

Even if Romney wins, the GOP holds the House, and wins the Senate, they ARE NOT going to win 60 seats in the Senate. The GOP House will vote to repeal, the bill will be passed to the Senate and the Democrats will simply filibuster it and not let it be voted on. Especially since the GOP have done this, they will be itching to return the favor. By January 1, 2014 nearly 60% of the bill is due to be implemented. They will hold off until then.

It’s here to stay. The only chance was the Supreme Court in my opinion. And they failed. It’s here to stay.

“...they ARE NOT going to win 60 seats in the Senate.”

Bull!!! There is potential to win 70 seats this fall- 23 are in Democrat hands and are up for Reelection.

All 23 of those Senators now HAVE to campaign with gasoline at 4.00/gal, unemployment at 8.5% and having passed the largest tax increase the world has ever seen, in all of human history, as well as the most comprehensive set of bureaucratic shackles ever crafted, in the history of the world. Good Luck..enjoy the #%it sandwich you've made...

Yeah and most of them are winning right now by 7+ points. I think even the most optimistic of people would agree that getting to 58 would probably be peak. Flipping 9 or 10 Senate seats in one election is really a monumental task. And the GOP would have to flip 23 as you say to get to 70. It’s not going to happen.

Hannity complained about the GM bailout. Then GM bought him and he shut up. How did they buy him? By advertising on his show and giving him a Suburban to ride around in. He’s one big hypocrite who loves to hear his own voice. I’ll bet he goes home at night and listens to a replay of that day’s show with all the callers edited out.

I’d bet $$ it’d be the same gaggle that passed TSA, the Patriot Act, Medicare Part-D and any number of other gov’t growth bills.

Just because they 99.9% all ganged up for a group-photo opportunity doesn’t make any one of them worth a warm piss if they were on fire.

No. When one of the two dominate parties implodes another party rises to second party status. The GOP may be reaching that point. From the forced nomination of Romney to it’s inability to adapt to the rise of conservatism, the GOP has resisted change. While I certainly wouldn’t predict when the party will fall, it seems that major changes will need to occur if the GOP is to be a relavent force twenty years from now.

I’m not so sure 3rd parties are out of the question any more. That is if the Republicans don’t come through on what they’ve been campaigning on. ( replacing Obamacare, re-invigorating our oil industry, protecting our borders, changing the tax system and doing something to stabilize Social Security and Medicare)
I would prefer the platform of the Constitution Party and Tea Party policies are appealing. I’d have to study the Libertarian party.
