Conservative heads are exploding all over the United States after it was announced that President Obama will deliver a speech to the American citizenry tomorrow night regarding his plans to use executive orders to reshape immigration to the United States. The Republicans have been adamant about not discussing immigration much less passing any immigration legislation. From a purely political standpoint this move by the President to grant a certain level of citizenship status to millions of undocumented immigrants is a multigenerational death shot to the future of the GOP.

While conservatives are dying off and not being replaced the Democrats can depend on several generations of Latinos to support the policies that will make their lives better by allowing them to stay and work in the United States.Even though the electoral politics are clear this is still a bold and legacy building move for President Obama. The successes of ObamaCare now fully cemented in the wounded psyches of the middle class; now comes the greatest act of diversity and compassion toward minorities in America since the Civl and Voting Rights Acts were passed in the late 1960s.

Republicans have already begun to howl and a few to threaten to go back to what they did while they only controlled one house of the Legislative branch- they will double down on being the party of “No!” in all areas outside of this immigration debate. There is very little they can do to undo an executive order; the only recourse for the GOP now is suicide from fear of death. GOP fringe elements from the TEA Party will call for Impeachment for certain now making their faction and the party as a whole easy fodder for those who see these pro-White and White-only bigots for what they are.

Twitter is ablaze with threats from Cruz to block presidential appointees and attach riders to bills to strip the president of his power to grant amnesty in this case. Both of those seemingly nuclear options are dead on arrival. Breitbart News Service is already fanning the flames against a president that never has to run for office again. Their headline Big Government story reads, “Baby Boom of Hispanic, Asian, and Black Children to Make Whites a Minority by 2050.” This is something we know already here on the Progressive side of the debate that is bound to happen and with the conservatives impotent due to their religious beliefs on sex and marriage they have sealed themselves in a box filled with gas fumes and are trying to strike a match.

A child born today will never know what the GOP was and certainly will never have a chance to vote for a GOP candidate. Those twentysomethings now who will drive Progressives into power anew in Congress and the majority state legislatures by 2024 will look back at the start of a historical golden age for Progressives that grew out of defeat that just a few days conservatives were dancing in the streets about. Politics is not a simple game nor is a kind game. Today it appears that the GOP will be retiring from the stage in a decade or so and leaving behind those who can only get elected to the House in the least diverse and backward districts in America.

THE POLITICAL PENDULUM: CONSERVATISM AS PUNK ROCK AND A CAUTIONARY TALE FOR PROGRESSIVES

Posted in SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS, THE POLITICAL PENDULUM with tags , , , on 30/07/2014 by sarahbloch

I have read a few pages of Kurt Schlichter’s new book “Conservative Insurgency” and as much as I wanted to dismiss this as yet another conservative wish list dressed up as fiction as I read I took a moment to consider the premise. Schlichter is a good writer and he touches all the bases as a writer that can keep a reader interested by by creating interesting characters with depth and presenting them in compelling situations. Okay, so much for my literary criticism. The politics of the book lay the groundwork for the premise. In 2041 the third consecutive conservative President of the United States has been elected and is awaiting his inauguration. Progressivism has been swept aside as a new wave of conservatism has overtaken not only politics but American culture. Strengthened are the values of the right in state and local governments, in the arts and in academia.

My Progressive friends, don’t laugh; for he who does not learn from history is damned to repeat it. Schlichter concedes a Hillary Rodham Clinton victory in 2016 and then explains how her administration fails completely because of foreign policy blunder that leads to a nuclear strike on Israel by Iran shortly after her reelection in 2020. Earlier in the prologue the author casts a progressive radio pundit at the age of 64 in 2041 lamenting the marginalization of her ideology in many of the same ways that conservatives lament the infighting and the endless defeats in the current Culture Wars.

There was a time that I would see this premise as laughable; today not so much. If there is one thing that I know about politics and societies that thing is that the pendulum always swings back to the center. Whether the pendulum swings all the way to the right or left after a cycle depends on how much the electorate feels change needs to be made. After Nixon resigned the nation wanted anyone to replace the feeling of shame about their highest elected office and that gave rise to Jimmy Carter. The scenario regarding the fictional Clinton is a hope by Schlichter that a similar foreign policy failure would bring her and her party down. Obama’s election and the massive influx of Democrats into the House and Senate in 2006 and 2008 was a direct rejection of the Bush Administration’s neoconservative policies in Iraq.

The other part of this story is the article written, clearly to promote his new book, about how the conservative ideology is like punk rock. This article is the opposite of Schlichter’s good writing in his book. This piece at Townhall.com is a sad attempt to present the conservative cultural program as something that it is not. Conservatism isn’t new, fresh or cutting edge. Conservatives don’t want to kick the walls of Progressive oppression down and “stick it to the man” because they are the man. The bitter progressive in his book is manifest in his own pitiful stretch to make conservatism cool in the current age. There is no amount to stage makeup that can change the current feelings about conservatism and conservatives, but in the not too distant future a few years of a comfortable majority in both houses of Congress and a twelve year occupancy in the White House could lead to a level of complacency in the Democratic Party that could prove as fatal as running bad candidates for the presidency from 1972 though 1988. My advice to Progressives is to buy Schlichter’s book and read it– twice.

DEPUTY POLICE CHIEF RESIGNS CORPORAL FIRED AFTER DISCOVERY OF THEIR KU KLUX KLAN AFFILIATION IN FRUITLAND PARK, FLORIDA

For the second time in five years, members of the Fruitland Park, Florida Police Department have left the department due to their membership and support of the right wing white supremacy group the Ku Klux Klan. Deputy Police Chief David Borst resigned from his post at the police department and his post within the city’s fire department and Corporal George Hunnewell was fired after the conclusion of the FBI investigation into KKK infiltration into the Fruitland Park Police Department. The FBI investigation according to sources within the agency, “is international in its scope of looking into supremacist groups within law enforcement.”

Five years ago Patrolman James W. Elkins was fired from the Fruitland Park Police Department after sending Klan recruitment flyers to members of the county sheriff’s department from his public post office box. At that time Police Chief J.M. Isom declared there were no other members in his department affiliated with the KKK. Elkins disputes this and it is now known to be true that Borst and Hunnewell were members of the United Northern and Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan during the time of Elkins’ termination.

Cliven Lance Bundy, the son of renegade rancher Cliven Bundy, who nearly lit the spark for an armed war near Bunkerville, Nevada in April of this year turned himself in to Las Vegas police after failing to appear at a court hearing scheduled for 1 July 2014 media sources are reporting. Bundy, 34, who plead guilty to felony burglary and weapons theft charges in February 2013, is reported to have missed several court appearances. One the date Bundy was to appear in Las Vegas, 8 July 2014, it is alleged he was having outpatient surgery. Cliven Lance Bundy was given five years probation and ordered to go through a drug counselling program as a result of his guilty plea, however, Bundy did not complete the program citing medical waivers. His drug addiction to prescription opiates has been attributed to surgery he had in 2003.

MY ADVICE TO SARAH PALIN THAT WILL HELP HER TO HELP AMERICA: “KEEP TALKING STUPID!”

Posted in SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS, SARAH PALIN with tags , , on 09/07/2014 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

I can’t add anything to this video save for a simple question. Is there anyone in their right mind who really thinks that Sarah Palin is fit to be the President of the United States and Leader of the free World? Watch the video:

It would be a very sick joke to play on the Human Beings of Terra to have this pandering person become the Chief Executive of the nation of my birth. A cynical part of me would love to see the two years of gaffes that would result in a Palin presidency. I would also have an infinite amount of content to comment on and discuss to the angry outrage of the Right. But the damage to the American people would be a horror that would make the Great Recession look like a quiet summer evening garden party. That would not be fair. So my advice to Ms Palin: keep talking and riling up your folksy homespun base for the purpose of your own enrichment because wealth on Terra is all you’ll ever have. The more you talk the better things become for Progressives, the GOP knows this, I know this and I am sure you know this too. But Sarah Palin doesn’t care because to her she can say what she wants and dance to sound of her growing bank accounts.

SARAH PALIN DROPS TO HER KNEES IN HOPES OF BECOMING “THE VIEW” CO-HOST

Posted in SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS, SARAH PALIN, THE VIEW with tags , , , , , on 08/07/2014 by sarahbloch

The never ending story of Sarah Palin’s lust for popularity and limelight continues as she hints at a desire to join the cast of the ABC morning talk show “The View.” In an article written in The Hollywood Reporter about the renewal of her Sportsman Channel reality show “Amazing America,” Palin offers her opinion of what the multiple Daytime Emmy Award winning show needs to revitalize itself after the departure of 75% of its cast:


THR:Any interest in doing a political talk show, either on TV, radio or the Internet?

Palin:Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous! It’d be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I’m known for. Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio. I hear everyone recently got canned from The View, maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.

The American work ethic? Today’s politics are incorrigibly disastrous? Real-life groundedness? So what is Palin saying here exactly other than “the View” needs a conservative white woman to be folsky and home spun and of course represent conservatism for a larger audience? I fell on the floor nearly laughing at the thought that Palin could be a greater “voice of reason” than Barbara Walters has been for 17 season on “The View.”

There would be a part of me that would take a perverse pleasure in seeing Whoopi Goldberg paired with Rachel Maddow on one side of the table and Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin on the other. Can you imagine the debates? ABC can you imagine the ratings?!
