NEOCON01 CONSERVATIVE BIGOTRY SHOWS HIS TRUE COLORS ONCE AGAIN

I asked the following series of questions to Neocon01 over at Views From The Right Side after he post the following comment once again pointing out his disdain for black Americans:

mmmm mmmm mmmm

“Since the dawn of history the negro has owned the continent of Africa – rich beyond the dream of a poet’s fancy, crunching acres of diamonds beneath his bare black feet. Yet he never picked one up from the dust until a white man showed to him its glittering light.
His land swarmed with powerful and docile animals, yet he never dreamed a harness, cart, or sled. A hunter be necessity, he never made an axe, spear, or arrowhead worth preserving beyond the moment of its use. He lived as an ox, content to graze for an hour. In a land of stone and timber he never sawed a foot of lumber, carved a block, or built a house save of broken sticks and mud.
With league on league of ocean strand and miles of inland seas, for four thousand years he watched their surface ripple under the wind, heard the thunder of the surf on his beach, the howl of the storm over his head, gazed on the dim blue horizon calling him to worlds that lie beyond, and yet he never dreamed a sail.”–“The Clansman”, Thomas F Dixon Jr, 1905.

Can this honestly you believe to be true? can you be that stupid or angry or bigoted? Is that depth of foolishness in the face of winning the greatest genetic lottery of all time being born white in America after the Second World War even possible?

Do take note dear reader that the author of the quote above, which has been passed around to numerous white supremacist sites since the birth of Internet chat rooms many decades ago, is the notorious Thomas F Dixon author of The Clansman a book that was the inspiration of D.W. Griffith’s film Birth of A Nation. This book was also the inspiration for the early 20th Century revival of the Ku Klux Klan not only in the American South but all across the United States. Neocon01 is unashamed for using it here and he likely is a dumb enough cunt to believe that it was uttered first by Charles Darwin who it is often attributed to in error by conservative racists like Neocon01.

I will not belabour the point of Neocon01’s horrible bigotry but wiull make a simple statement. My husband Odamo Sese Omoko is the master chef [Chef Grandee] of the Imperial Household and the absolute love of my Afterlife; Eternity with him is simply not enough though the prospect makes me smile. I love him with every fibre of my being and cannot say how painful it was thinking about him and how very far his success has taken him here to be faced with such literary sewage as the words of Dixon quoted by a man who owes his paltry success by comparison to institutionalized bigotry in a nation that was stolen, as many have been, from those who dwelt there four centuries ago.

I do not dislike Neocon01 because he is a conservative I feel sorry for him because he is a bigot and no person who is a bigot is a man in my eyes anymore than they can be considered a Human Being. To be such an unabashed bigot is nearly to spit in the eye of the Creator of the Universe. Neocon01 can pray to any deity he wishes but if he thinks that his deity embraces the evil of racial or any other form of bigotry then he has missed not only the message of the central figure of his religion but the very point of existing as a Human Being– Love thy neighbour as you Love yourself. So now I am going to enjoy the wealth the Afterlife has given me this evening. I am going to finish this article, pour myself a nice glass of wine and take my beautiful black husband to bed and enjoy him as he enjoys me; and before I fall asleep tonight my last words to him will be, “I love you with all my heart.”

A WINNING STREAK DOES NOT MEAN THE RIGHT IS DEAD

Posted in 2016 ELECTIONS, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CULTURE WARS, GOP AS A MINORITY PARTY, POLITICS, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS on 27/06/2015 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

I haven’t seen American Progressives this happy since election night 2012. The midterm election of 2014 were a disaster for the Progressive cause but we all knew that it was yet another one of those moments of light and beauty for the Right that they would soon snuff out themselves. The reaction to the shooting of nine black parishoners in Charleston, South Carolina was so fast and so powerful that the Right, in the modern digital age, had only moments to try to distance itself from the tragedy despite being loosely connected.

Just a few moments ago, Lucy Pawle reporting for CNN said the ISIS flag was seen spotted during a Gay Pride parade in London. This will surely be fodder for the Right in America even though this wasn’t a sanction flag nor did the event take place in America. [It was also a practical joke on ISIS and the MSM fomented by some of our own activists in the UK! Look closely at the flag people. It is a shame that a journalist more interested in the scoop was not clear-minded enough to get the joke.–Pain] This is just a weak handhold for the Right to grasp as Progressives move forward. The game has changed in just five short years. Who would have thought the 5-4 SCOTUS decision that came down yesterday could have taken place, ever, had you asked an American ten years ago?

There is an election, I’ve heard about in 2016 that might be the last straw for the GOP as it exists today. Millions of conservatives, both social and fiscal, are utterly disillusioned with the GOP in 2015. The bottom line is they are tired of losing and the field of candidates on the Right is so lacking in the character they crave and insist are the values of the majority of Americans they would likely prefer to vote for a third party candidate who speaks their language–and means it.

Were I the head of the GOP I would be pushing for Scott Walker, who is likely the only GOP candidate that could beat either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. Walker might be the person, the only one I might add, that could pull the GOP back from the brink of self destruction undoing all the ground it has gained in state legislatures and governor’s mansions since 2000. Walker would have to work across the aisle and enlist the aid of some Progressives in Congress to bring about a new age in American politics. Doing so will surely alienate him to conservatives who want the whole burrito or nothing, making him a one term President.

In that four years of a Walker Administration America could for one last time see what the GOP would do if it had bot the White House and Congress for at least two years. The problem for the GOP is that those in the center are too few and those who vote in primaries are too homogeneous and too old. By 2025 when it is very likely Hillary Clinton will be leaving office after her second term the 59 to 84 year olds who are the GOP base will be 69 to 94 year olds and their numbers will have decreased by 17% through dying out. What does that mean for Progressives? It means we have to stay on message. We have to engage youth and have a clear understanding of what they want from government and what they will give to the nation. I have said many times that a girl who was 12 years old on the day that Barack Obama was elected President will be 20 on the day she votes for Hillary Clinton and will be 28 on the day Clinton leaves office after her second term. Progressives have the ability to speak to that girl and have been doing so since 2008. Progressives want her to have a graduate degree and be pursuing a fulfilling career by 2025; Conservatives only want her to be pregnant with her second child, living in a house with her husband and attending church regularly by that date.

THE DAILY EPIC FAIL: A CONSERVATIVE TRIES TO EXPLAIN WHY THE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RESTORATION ACT IN INDIAN HARMS NO ONE

Posted in INDIANA RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RESTORATION ACT OF 2015, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS with tags , , on 30/03/2015 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

There was a time, not too long ago, when Mark Edward Noonan of Blogs For Victory infamy, saw himself as a potential candidate for public office. I believe we here at The Dis Brimstone-Daily Pitchfork were a bit too harsh on him and for reasons which have never quite become clear he bowed out aborting his campaign before it could be brought forth to the political world. That event likely saved many of you who read this blog a virtual smörgåsbord of gaffes, missteps and other laughable events on Mr Noonan’s part.

This brings me to the most recent attempt on the part of the GOP in a state legislature to turn 2015 back into 1915. Indiana has passed and Governor Mike pence has signed the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This bill is very similar to the federal version which was passed and signed in 1993. The main difference between the Indiana law and the other 19 state religious freedom laws is the point of standing. In most states where these laws exist, which the exception of Texas, the government has to be a party to any claim of an undue burden on a person [corporation or religious organization’s] religious beliefs which are deeply held. So this means a person can simply to refuse to serve someone because their beliefs would consider that service a sin.

Now Mark Noonan attempts to clarify matters by saying that this law will discriminate against no one for a very simple reason and i will use his own words here:

“It would not allow me, if I were a baker, to refuse to serve homosexual customers – it does excuse me from participating in a same-sex wedding by making the cake which will be consumed at that wedding. If I were a baker – and being that I am Catholic – you could get just about anything you want form me…but you couldn’t get a cake celebrating a same-sex wedding. There are other sorts of confections you couldn’t get from me, as well…I probably would not want to bake a cake which, say, proclaimed some dogma of Christian Science. You just want a cake – you got it; you want a cake which requires me to sin: it ain’t happening.

And that is all RFRA does – it allows me to not do something for you. If I am not doing something for you then I am also not doing anything to you. I am not violating your rights by not providing a service. In fact, if you were able to compel me to do something for you, then not only would you likely be violating my religious beliefs, but you’d also be forcing me into involuntary servitude…and slavery is explicitly prohibited in our Constitution.”

It’s necessary to dissect what Noonan says here line by line so that his depth of misunderstanding can fully be understood. Noonan states he wouldn’t be allowed to refuse homosexual customers, but then he pivots to the fact that he wouldn’t bake a cake [still a cake keep in mind] if that cake was to be consumed in celebration of a same sex wedding. That in Noonan’s deeply held religious belief is a sin and no law can force him to sin. Okay, that does sound like a deeply held religious belief but it is also de fact discrimination. All other people celebrating legal weddings recognized by the state of Indiana can come right in to his bakery and order a cake but this other group cannot. Noonan has create a second class of citizens who are committing no crime under the law but now he, with the aid of Indiana’s RFRA, can discriminate with extreme prejudice.

His next argument is that if he’s doing nothing to you then he isn’t violating your rights. I disagree. Segregated lunch counters refused to do anything to black customers throughout the first seven decades of the 20th Century, yet those people’s civil rights were clearly violated. Noonan feels that Jim Crow in its modern incarnation when applied to the LGBT community is a farce. he’s dead wrong. What this law will do is commingle commerce with religion. At best these are awful bedfellows as was seen in the Hobby Lobby decision. You are violating the rights of a couple who wants to buy a wedding cake and yes this is a first world problem but it is also essential to having a free society, governed by laws not by religious feelings or beliefs.

Despite the dogmatic epic fails previous cited Noonan takes the full cannonball into the stupid pool with the last argument in which he says having to bake a cake for a gay or lesbian wedding would force him into involuntary servitude and that slavery is explicitly prohibited by the Constitution. He’s right that slavery is patently unconstitutional but engaging in a legal commercial contract to provide a product or service for pay is not slavery. Involuntary servitude is a different matter. The pay exchange is not the issue with involuntary servitude because one can be held in involuntary servitude and receive wages. The issue is with force. The legal definition states that their must be proof that the couple wanting the cake for their same sex wedding, “knowingly and willfully took action, by way of force, threats, intimidation or other form of coercion, causing the victim to reasonably believe that he had no way to avoid continued service, that he was confronted by the existence of a superior and overpowering authority, constantly threatening to the extent that his will was completely subjugated.” A broad interpretation such as Noonan’s would cast America into a legal tailspin in regard to where a person’s religious beliefs, on a litany of matters, come into to direct conflict with secular law.

NOT FIT TO SERVE: COLORADO STATE REPRESENTATIVE GORDON KLINGENSCHMITT SAYS PREGNANT WOMAN’S ASSAULT IS THE CREATOR’S VENGEANCE ON AMERICA

Posted in NOT FIT TO SERVE, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS on 26/03/2015 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

If you are in Colorado Springs, Colorado right now sitting in a bar reading this post look around at the patron for a second. Go ahead I’ll wait. Okay, any of those people you see no matter how drunk or how many platters of hot wings they’ve gulled down in the blink of an eye or even if they’re eating the nuts on the bar [we all know those nuts are dirtier than the urinal cake] are more qualified to serve the people of Colorado Springs than Gordon Klingenschmitt. My ire is directed at Representative Klingenschmitt because of his comments regarding the brutal attack on Michelle Wilkins where her 34 week old fetus was removed from her womb by Dynel Lane.

Klingenschmitt said, and I quote:

“This is the curse of God upon America for our sin of not protecting innocent children in the womb. And part of that curse for our rebellion against God as a nation is that our pregnant women are ripped open.”

I’m not going to take up much more of your valuable time. I just have this one last thing to say. If you are a moderate who thinks conservatives winning elections is something that is okay keep in mind that these are the kinds of fucktards that are going to be running the government, making laws and shoving their Theocracy down your throats one bill at a time.

POLITICS IN THE BUFF: WHY THE CLINTON EMAIL SCANDAL MIGHT SAVE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

Posted in 2016 ELECTIONS, CLINTON EMAIL SCANDAL, ELIZABETH WARREN, POLITICS IN THE BUFF, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS on 06/03/2015 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

As you sit there in 2015 in America you are witnessing history; living it in all its fullness. Hillary Rodham Clinton hasn’t done anything legally damaging by banking her emails on a private server while Secretary if State, but politically this revelation is devastating. I will go so far as to say it is a poison politically that Clinton cannot recover from in the modern Internet age.

hillary-clinton-young

While Clinton’s supporters wave this scandal away because she broke no laws, the stain of the paranoia that surrounds all things CLINTON will make those who make political kings, and queens, in America wince. Worse it may cause them not to dig deep into their pockets to help Hillary Clinton raise the $1.2 billion she will need, minimum, to win the White House in 2016. The question that will be ringing in the minds of the big donors isn’t, “Can we trust her?” but rather, “Is she stable enough to manage the Executive Office of The President amidst the hurricane force winds of conservative innuendo and actual allegations about the past, present and future that are sure to come.” That same question was asked of me by my husband, Chef Grandee Odamo Sese Omoko in a clearer more concise way, “Is she going to be the Democratic Party version of Nixon if she wins?”

elizabeth-warren

After all the victories Progressives have won against a tsunami of efforts from the Right over the past 15 years to install a person with a character defect, real or perceived by America’s powerbrokers, would signal the decline of the Progressive movement by its association with the Democratic Party. Hillary Clinton is not the only candidate on the Left of the political center that can win the White House against the current field of expected GOP candidates. Despite her protestations that she doesn’t want the job Senator Elizabeth Warren would trounce anyone in the field at this time. Among the looming outside of the expected field on the Right is Sarah Palin and a Warren Palin series of debates would be must see television for anyone who lives and breathes in America. Joe Biden would not be my first choice if Hillary doesn’t run but he would be literally Trumanesque as President of the United States. Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley is the intellectual superior of anyone in the GOP field as well as a politically savvy operator which in these polarizing times will be sine qua non to getting the country back on track –in Washington.

server-bank

I don’t lose any sleep over Clinton’s emails. There is no lump in my throat about Clinton deciding, or having it decided for her, that she does not run in 2016. I have no nausea in the pit of my stomach when I think about servers. The Progressive bench is deep; there are numerous options, even beyond the ones that I’ve listed. Clinton wanting to stay home, being a grandmother and doing good work through the Clinton Foundation could be the best thing she could ever do for America. And give it time progressives there will be another Clinton in the Oval office in good time–her name is Chelsea.

THE CONSERVATIVE IDIOT OF THE DAY: VITO BARBIERI

Posted in CONSERVATIVE IDIOT OF THE DAY, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS on 24/02/2015 by sarahbloch

blochadvocate_4

In the great and august deliberative body that is the Idaho State House, a Republican member of the House State Affairs Committee, Vito Barbieri, during a hearing about an anti-abortion bill had the following exchange with a panelist, Dr Julie Madsen:

Dr. Julie Madsen, a physician who said she has provided various telemedicine services in Idaho, was testifying in opposition to the bill. She said some colonoscopy patients may swallow a small device to give doctors a closer look at parts of their colon.

“Can this same procedure then be done in a pregnancy? Swallowing a camera and helping the doctor determine what the situation is?” Barbieri asked.

Madsen replied that would be impossible because swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina.

“Fascinating. That makes sense,” Barbieri said, amid the crowd’s laughter.

THE GOP CONVENTION OF 2016: DEFIANCE IN THE FACE OF DISASTER

Posted in 2012 ELECTION GOP AUTOPSY, 2016 ELECTIONS, 2016 US ELECTION, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS with tags , on 03/02/2015 by sarahbloch

blochadvocate_7“No man needs anything more than his own knowledge that his way is best to destroy him.”– Paaclu Obeleth, Liberty and Peace

That quote comes from one of my favorite account of the war for our independence here in Hell, written by the leader of the partisans on Rham. It allows you, the Living to see for a moment into the minds of those people you see on television called politicians. It is very easy to look back at history and see where an American political party has gone wrong. Fred Schwartz points to 1968 and the Democratic Party’s awful convention in Chicago. That event was a perfect storm for failure. The Tet Offensive emboldened the anti-war movement, Daley’s obsession with crushing the protesters and the lack a a strong Democratic candidate with a vision poured gallons of fuel on the party’s pyre. And, of course, there was television to bring it all to the comfortable living rooms of the American people.

So that brings us to the 2016 GOP nomination process and the massive field of potential candidates. The primaries begin in less than twelve months with an event that isn’t a primary at all the Iowa Caucus. Eight days later New Hampshire has its primary and the process likely will end in late June with the Utah primary. The GOP has shortened their schedule for a wide variety of reasons. Foremost, they want to limit the amount of time their candidates are before the cameras. Less exposure less time for errors that Democrats can use against them. So much energy has been poured into this and taken away from the suggestions of the 2012 Election Autopsy that this becomes the first gust of the storm to come.

As recently as February 2014 a poll, this one from McClatchy, has Sarah Palin as high as 8% among GOP likely voters. No other poll has even offered her name since. Today there is a buzz that Palin is considering a run. This would be the first bolt of lightning, albeit offshore, of foul weather building. Palin entering the contest would be huge for TEA Party conservatives and would create nausea in the bellies of Establishment members of the GOP. Her presence would divide the party in ways that can only be measured on a Richter like scale. Reince Priebus’ grand plan to trim down the primary schedule and limit debates as the ultimate troubleshooting effort to “degaffe” the GOP candidates will have been torched by a single decision.

Bush and his name recognition and immigration problems would see his support being chipped away by not only Palin. but by moderates like Christie and unknowns like Ben Carson. So by the time the GOP comes to Cleveland, in a race that will likely still have a minimum of five candidates still in the field with broad support. Those candidates would be, Palin, Paul, Bush, Walker and Christie; with Paul and Palin each having as much as 30% of the delegates they’d need to be the nominee. I feel that Palin if she has a lead over Paul might offer the VP nod to Paul for his delegates and that would be that if the Kentucky Senator could see beyond the right now. Paul is only 52 now and four, or eight years in Blair House would make him the de facto front runner in 2024. If Paul wants the right now moment he would find help, in a brokered convention, from a most unlikely source to balk at such a deal–The GOP Establishment.

The so called moneybags and kingmakers within the GOP don’t want Rand Paul or Sarah Palin but they do want, in a brokered convention, time. Time to change minds by making deals in the cigar smoke filled rooms in Cleveland’s most posh hotels. These deals might bring a Scott Walker or a Chris Christie out of the ashes and onto the podium arms raised and declaring proudly that they accept the nomination amid boo and harsh criticism from the membership of the convention floor. Such an event might be enough to anger Palin into casting her lot as a third party candidate. The outcome of that event would be the final fracturing of the GOP. The hurricane would be ashore then with no place safe to run.

BLOGS FOR VICTORY OFFLINE

Posted in 2016 US ELECTION, BLOGS 4 VICTORY, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS, SARAH PALIN with tags , , , , , on 25/01/2015 by sarahbloch

blochadvocate_7

The Internet child of Matt Margolis and Mark Edward Noonan, BlogsforVictory, which began as BlogsforBush a digital apologist for the unjust war in Iraq, is down as of midnight last night. There is no explanation I can find except they didn’t update their account at GoDaddy.com. I am sure they will whip out a credit card and renew the blog and return to their opining about what’s wrong with Terra from an authoritarian conservative perspective. This blog has fought many wars with them especially socio-political ones. The fact that Noonan cannot bear to see the nude human image was likely the reason anyone who worked for The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork were banned from commenting there. If this is the end of BlogsforVictory I must admit a measure of sadness. Nothing made me happier than reading Noonan’s predictions of conservatives winning presidential elections only to see him have to eat his words on the following Wednesday. The hypocritical gut twisting the likes of Amazona, tiredoflibbs and Count d’Haricots were forced to engage in as the war in Iraq went south due to no WMDs being found. At the start of B4B back before the turn of the century conservatives likely thought they had a renaissance on their hands in the first decade of the new century. 9/11 reinforced that for them. Then the grand social pendulum started to swing toward the Progressives. Same sex marriage and abortion rights are still law in America even though the latter has seen states chip away at a woman’s right to choose. Over the last six years the two electoral victories of President Barack Hussein Obama has lit the fuse to the bomb that will eventually blow up the GOP and fracture the Right irreparably for at least a generation. BlogsforVictory, and blogs like them that required conservative ideological purity, have been more responsible for the coming demise of the GOP than any action by President Obama, Progressive elected officials or even Liberal bloggers like me. Maybe Noonan and his fellow travelers in theocratic conservative authoritarianism will rally behind a single candidate that they wish to see elected the nominee in 2016. Palin isn’t a favorite for Noonan; nor is Dr Ben Carson but I could see a BlogsforCruz2016 rising from the ashes of B4V in the coming months filled with the same improbable enthusiasm that they had for McCain and Romney over the last two election cycles. If there is one thing I can give them credit for after so many poor predictions is that they are consistent in their blind belief that they are the majority in the face of proof to the contrary.

POLITICS IN THE BUFF: SANDY RIOS AND THE PILLARS OF CONSERVATIVE STUPIDITY

Posted in CONSERVATIVE ANTI-INTELLECTUALISM, CONSERVATIVE BIGOTRY, CONSERVATIVE DESPERATION, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HEADS EXPLODING, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, CONSERVATIVE LIES, POLITICS, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS on 24/01/2015 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

Conservative talk show host [ugh, still have to say that] Sandy Rios on her show Wednesday conversed with callers that while they did not know where the United States Air Force Academy was, they were sure that President Obama was using “Islamist code” in his Monday night delivery of his 2015 State of the Union address. The caller stated that Obama was wrong on the location of the USAF Academy that it was in Fort Collins not 133 miles away in Colorado Springs. The Air Force assures me that the academy hasn’t moved; it’s still in Colorado Springs.

The lack of accurate information aside let’s get to the real batshit crazy nature of this conversation. Rios says during the segment, “The other thing he said that I caught, he has done this before, you know there are five pillars of Islam, and he used the term ‘pillars’ again in his speech last night. Actually, President Obama used the word “pillar” exactly one time in his speech and it was in this context [emphasis mine.–S.B.]:

“That’s why, over the past six years, we’ve done more than ever before to combat climate change, from the way we produce energy, to the way we use it. That’s why we’ve set aside more public lands and waters than any administration in history. And that’s why I will not let this Congress endanger the health of our children by turning back the clock on our efforts. I am determined to make sure American leadership drives international action. In Beijing, we made an historic announcement — the United States will double the pace at which we cut carbon pollution, and China committed, for the first time, to limiting their emissions. And because the world’s two largest economies came together, other nations are now stepping up, and offering hope that, this year, the world will finally reach an agreement to protect the one planet we’ve got.

There’s one last pillar to our leadership — and that’s the example of our values.

As Americans, we respect human dignity, even when we’re threatened, which is why I’ve prohibited torture, and worked to make sure our use of new technology like drones is properly constrained. It’s why we speak out against the deplorable anti-Semitism that has resurfaced in certain parts of the world. It’s why we continue to reject offensive stereotypes of Muslims — the vast majority of whom share our commitment to peace. That’s why we defend free speech, and advocate for political prisoners, and condemn the persecution of women, or religious minorities, or people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. We do these things not only because they’re right, but because they make us safer.”

This one reference is some sort of Islamist code? For this to be the case then no other President must have ever used the word except to tip off ISIS that it’s time to come to America to install Sharia law because the Americans are ripe for the picking. Sorry President Obama Sandy Rios has foiled your plan for American domination by global jihadists. What? There’s no such plot? Any good conservative would want to see proof right?

“Fortunately, we and our allies have rediscovered the strength of our common democratic values, and we’re applying them as a cornerstone of a comprehensive strategy for peace with freedom. In London last year, I announced the commitment of the United States to developing the infrastructure of democracy throughout the world. We intend to pursue this democratic initiative vigorously. The future belongs not to governments and ideologies which oppress their peoples, but to democratic systems of self-government which encourage individual initiative and guarantee personal freedom.

But our strategy for peace with freedom must also be based on strength—economic strength and military strength. A strong American economy is essential to the well-being and security of our friends and allies. The restoration of a strong, healthy American economy has been and remains one of the central pillars of our foreign policy. The progress I’ve been able to report to you tonight will, I know, be as warmly welcomed by the rest of the world as it is by the American people.

We must also recognize that our own economic well-being is inextricably linked to the world economy. We export over 20 percent of our industrial production, and 40 percent of our farmland produces for export. We will continue to work closely with the industrialized democracies of Europe and Japan and with the International Monetary Fund to ensure it has adequate resources to help bring the world economy back to strong, noninflationary growth.”

Okay conservatives would you like to take a guess which President made that statement during his State of the Union address. Need a hint? The address was delivered to a joint session of Congress on 25 January 1983.

THE VOTE FOR US HOUSE SPEAKER: THE 2015 CALM BEFORE THE 2016 STORM

My colleague Fred Schwartz thought the 2008 Republican national Convention was going to be a disaster. Even then he saw that the collision between the far right and the establishment GOP were on a collision course that could lead to the end of them as a national party. While the odds of the GOP securing the White House in 2016 remain slim the doomsday predictions for the House and Senate haven’t come to pass.

The GOP have quietly become a major force in midterm elections precisely because of those far right conservative supporters of candidates that incorrectly call themselves republicans. The TEA Party, as an umbrella organ with those conservatives disillusioned with the Establishment GOP, will be the death of the Grand Old Party shortly after their defeat in the 2016 presidential election cycle. Mid term elections serve as cauldrons that pour forth the fears and hypocrisy for the conservative base and allow them to broaden their legislative branch power. Presidential elections focus the media spotlight on the ugly truth or the bigotry, misogyny and homophobia that are needed by the Establishment GOP to get their ultra conservative base of 40 million voters lathered into a frenzy.

Today John Boehner stands at the crossroads of the death of the GOP. There can be three outcomes as he seeks to remain House Speaker. There can be a Boehner victory on the first ballot. This is the likely outcome. There can be a defection from him of enough votes to force a second ballot or more which would still see Boehner win. Then, horrifically, Boehner could lose the vote many ballots down the line. This would be the de facto lighting of the fuse that would see the GOP fracture at its center. And who’s to say that Democrats in an act of bold partisan politics wouldn’t support a crackpot like Louis Gohmert on the first ballot just to make things interesting?

The Establishment GOP would then be forced to come to the center and jettison those from its ranks with TEA Party loyalty. The problem with this would be that several of the bright lights of the GOP for the 2016 nomination are in lockstep with the TEA Party. Gone would be Ted Cruz and likely Marco Rubio to a new third party. That would be the best case scenario for the GOP.

Schwartz mentioned in 2008 that the GOP convention could look like the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention. were Rubio and Cruz still in the running and Jeb Bush ushered in the backdoor through smoky room dealings the rank and file on the convention floor could rebel, especially in Southern and Western states. The public meltdown would be a national embarrassment for the GOP and the implosion would resonate into an electoral landslide for not only the Democratic nominee in the national but far down the ticket. This event, over the next five election cycles in state elections, could be the unwinding of the control that Republicans have had at the state level for nearly a decade.

That is why I see this vote today as more than posturing for 2016. It may be the first shot of a civil war between the Establishment and the TEA Party that will be bloody and ugly and played out on your televisions over the next 23 months.

Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
