While the drones are clapping like lobotomised seals at identikit politicians mouthing the same old lies and platitudes on the stage, enquiring minds are pulling back the curtain. Remember the name Sheldon Adelson, a man suspected of links with organised Chinese crime but who’s buying his way into organised Washington crime. He’s a billionaire who made his money in Vegas and Mitt Romney’s single greatest donor. Before jumping aboard that boat he was shovelling money at Newt Gingrich, which explains why Gingrich suddenly took against Palestinians during the primaries. According to the New York Times, Adelson’s “a fervent Zionist who opposes any territorial compromise to make way for a Palestinian state.” This all might be well and good if you like that sort of thing. Adelson’s clearly the kind of man who likes to get his own way and he hasn’t poured an estimated $35million into GOP candidates during this election for the fun of it. However, getting his own way might well involve young American (and, possibly, British) men and women dying yet again in far flung places. Zionists in the GOP might well look forward to that kind of thing or think it a necessary cost of interventionism abroad, but they would do well to see and admit that Adelson appears to not only be a Zionist but also harbour a total adoration of, and fealty to, a foreign nation.

Many of the attacks made against Obama since 2008 have been rooted in the idea that his allegiances are international instead of American, or that his ideology is not rooted in American tradition. The Great and Powerful Oz behind Romney goes well beyond this, to the point of explicitly repudiating America and American interests and stating, in effect, he wishes he never wore an American uniform. If he was backing Obama and wishing he wore, say, a French uniform, I suspect that some Republicans might regard him as a traitor.

“What happens all over the world is our business.”

That’s Marco Rubio, widely-touted as Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential pick. Given Rubio’s establishment-pleasing, all-war-all-the-time remarks the other day, it’s just as likely that someone made the choice for Romney.

He bounces a $500 cheque for the Utah primary entry fee.

(Come to think of it, he’s perfect government material).

The best explanation yet!

Great stuff from Tom Woods, who just gets better and better. Ahead of Super Duper Mega Tuesday the historian, author and senior fellow of the Ludwig von Mises Institute attempts to answer the unanswerable and reveals himself to be a first class piss taker along the way. It’s particularly recommended for Republican drones.

NB: Tom Woods’ explanation for the rotten state of our economies is still the clearest one out there.

I see that a poll has twenty per cent of Republicans leaning towards Obama. If each party and almost all candidates believe essentially the same things, so what?

Not the greatest surprise:















The establishment choice is made: George HW Bush (R-Skull & Bones) has endorsed Mitt Romney.

WHO knew the GOP race could be so entertaining?

Clearly not happy with Governor Perry stealing the headlines last week, Hermain Cain has gone one better with a towering display of ineptitude, this time over Libia Libeeya Leebeyahland oh some place somewhere:


President Cain will sure have alot of advisors swilling around the White House. Every time he opens his mouth it’s to intone that he will ‘take advice from the experts’. See the longer version of the ‘answer’ on Libya for all that claptrap.

To be slightly generous to Perry, anyone’s brain can stop working when the pressure’s on, though his failure to remember the third of three departments he would close down suggests a policy made on the way to that debate. This Cain failure is worse, gloriously worse. He’s promoting himself to take over from a Commander-in-Chief and he has no idea what war that C-in-C has just fought for six months. I know he’s been on the road, but his response suggests the kind of isolation from geopolitical affairs that only living in a log cabin can provide.

The man’s not serious and neither are GOP voters if Cain doesn’t plummet out of the race immediately.

Moderate Conservatives Spring Into Action, Denounce Conservatism

By ATWadmin On November 6th, 2008 at 7:30 am

And so it begins. Those good old ‘moderate conservatives’, the American version of the grease-slick, media-obsessed Tories that have removed all but the last vestiges of Conservatism from our own Conservative Party, sense imminent victory. There’s blood in the water and they are flexing their muscles, to mix metaphors.

Yes Brit folks, you may recognise the style. For our intrepid moderates, the problem isn’t the fact that the Republican hierarchy has spent the last 4-6 years betraying virtually every principle of good government and social conservatism that the GOP was founded on that’s the problem, its that they didn’t betray those principles enough.

“College-educated Americans have come to believe that their money is safe with Democrats – but that their values are under threat from Republicans. And there are more and more of these college-educated Americans all the time.

So the question for the GOP is: Will it pursue them? To do so will involve painful change, on issues ranging from the environment to abortion. And it will involve potentially even more painful changes of style and tone: toward a future that is less overtly religious, less negligent with policy, and less polarizing on social issues.”

Well let’s just parse this out. Frum acknowledges the fact that the majority of college grads now vote Democrat when once upon a time they voted GOP without in any mentioning why this might be the case. It’s that gigantic elephant in the room that all RINO’s like Frum just cannot see – the good old Culture War, which has now seen its finest expression in the election of Barack Obama to the Presidency.

The reason why, as Frum puts it, college grads feel their values tie with the Dems is that the Left has been in complete, total charge of university education in the US for the past two decades, and therefore has ensured that 90% of those who have been fed through the disgusting, distorting meat grinder of Indoctrination U. vote the right way. Admitting the symptoms without acknowledging the cause and, oh I don’t know, maybe suggesting that a GOP administration might want to actually get off its backside and do something about it is quite simply surrender.

Frum also let’s slip his own dearest causes here, of course. ‘Painful change’ on the environment (gee, maybe a candidate who embraced the Global Warming Agenda to the max would be the thing – oh, hang on a minute, didn’t we just try that?) and abortion is needed. So once again, Frum’s message is that if you don’t surrender your values on what for so many people is an absolutely fundamental issue even further to embrace taxpayer funding of a practice you loathe and detest then you can’t ever ‘win’.

But it’s the last line quoted above where the mask really slips.

“Less polarising on social issues.”

There’s the keyword, folks. Polarising. Go Left, young man! Conform to the norm, to the MSM’s version of where America should be and don’t even think about calling it out on the most media-biased election cycle in history (which you will note Frum doesn’t). Embrace swinging job-destroying ‘Green’ taxation, embrace Taxpayer-funded abortion, cede eternal control of education to the Left and allow it to continue twisting the minds of America’s youth and just accept henceforth that all new voters can only be courted by as hard Left an agenda as possible.

In fact why bother with Conservatism at all? That’s the real message here, and one us Brits have heard loud and clear for a long, long time. The David Frum’s of this world are the Sirens luring the frustrated and disheartened men and women of the GOP onto the rocks, but if the Republican Party heeds those voices and steers even further Left than it has already done then it will destroy America as a force for good in the world far more effectively than any external enemy ever could.

And I’ll bet you a tenner he voted McCain in the primaries, too.


There’s No Such Thing As The Nanny State

By ATWadmin On December 22nd, 2007 at 9:59 pm

Take a state legislature that’s dominated by neocoMs, add a healthy measure of moonbats, then swirl with a RINO governor and you can reasonably conclude how this will turn out.

State to Look Closer at Caffeine as Health Hazard

A state environmental health committee Monday voted to further study the stimulant caffeine for possible inclusion on California’s list of substances known to cause cancer or reproductive harm.

By law, the governor must publish an updated Proposition 65 list of harmful chemicals each year. Inclusion on the list also requires that the chemicals be publicly posted and also appear on product labels.

The earliest the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment’s Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification panel make a decision on adding caffeine to the list would be next year. The Proposition 65 designation would only apply to products with caffeine added artificially, not naturally-occurring caffeine products like coffee and tea. Five of seven committee members would have to approve the listing.

The committee has already looked at caffeine research for the last 10 years and found studies associated the chemical to reproductive problems.

The American Beverage Association defends caffeine consumption, citing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the March of Dimes as saying up to two cups of coffee daily — including for pregnant women — is a safe amount.

Ahnold’s uncle-in-law, the Fat Drunk from Taxachusetts, was unavailable for comment.
