Is The Left Coming Unhinged?

The Sequester Backfiring

We are now days away from the Sequester kicking in and Obama is having a hard time convincing House Republicans that we need more tax revenue as part of a deal to avert the Sequester cuts.  Remember that Republicans already caved on tax increases in January with the Senate Fiscal Cliff deal and this was supposed to take tax increases off the table but Obama is calling for more.

“To prevent the spending cuts, worth about $85 billion in between March 1 and Dec. 31, Obama called for tax increases and some spending cuts.”

Obama is now faced with spending cuts but his handlers won’t allow him to do that so what is his strategy?  Blame the Sequester cuts on the Republicans!

There’s just one problem with that tactic, Sequester cuts were Obama’s idea.  Even his Press Secretary Jay Carney admitted that!  Plus, the Sequester was approved by both Houses of Congress and signed by The One so I say let it happen.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, It’s Cliffs All The Way Down!  We keep bouncing from one manufactured crisis to another so let’s take our medicine, let the Obamaquester spending cuts happen and Let It Burn.

Supporting and Promoting Rape

I didn’t think anyone could be more senseless and disrespectful than ex-Indiana men’s basketball coach Bob Knight when he said in 1988:

”I think that if rape is inevitable, relax and enjoy it.”

Then Bob Beckel (Democratic member of Fox News’ The Five) came along and told a lie about rapes on college campuses:

“When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?”

That was bad enough but then he doubled down and said this:

“Well, date rape, yeah, that’s one thing.”

So when a woman is raped by her date then it’s not that big of a deal, right?  I think the women who are raped on college campuses by their dates and most decent human beings take a far different view.

And don’t forget why The Five was even discussing this rape topic.  Colorado state congressman Joe Salazar (D) recently made the idiotic comment that women should uses whistles to defend themselves against rapists instead of guns.

“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop around at somebody.”

In my opinion, the statements by Beckel and Salazar are worse than the one moron Todd Akin (R) made last year.  Remember when Liberals blasted him (as did I) about the term ‘legitimate rape’?  Where is the Leftist media outrage at Beckel’s denial of college campus rape, Beckel’s dismissal of date rape or Salazar’s suggestion that women limit their defense options against rape?

Crickets.

Gun Memes Blowing up

Leftists are pimping for tougher gun laws and banning ‘assault’ rifles as well as high capacity clips since the Newtown shooting (As Rahm Emanuel said – You never want a serious crisis to go to waste).  They think these new laws will prevent gun homicides.

But real events are not cooperating with their meme.  Recently, in California, a mad man went on a carjacking spree and killed several innocent people with a shotgun.  Notice that the murderer used a shotgun, which would not be banned under existing Leftist proposals, and he carried out this killing spree in a state that has the toughest gun laws in the US as rated by the Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence.

I love it when the Left gets cocky and overplays their hand.  The last time they did this they nominated John Kerry against George W. Bush in 2004 and we know how that turned out.  Even with the Main Stream Media on their side, once average Americans see the true Leftist ideals, they turn away in mass.

It’s starting to happen.  Popcorn!

    Even though the source is the Fiscal Times with their conservative agenda, I think they have identified what will be Obama’s and Hillery’s Waterloo; the impending collapse of Afghanistan before the 2016 election. It will be hard for them to blame this on Republicans.

    Hillery is smart for getting out now but don’t see how she dodges this bullet.

  2. I really want to be pessimistic, but I think we bloggers can have a positive impact if we remain calm and rational like you, cosmoscon. We might not reach everyone directly, but we can hope for a trickle down effect to low-info voters if we play our hand right. Kudos on the good post.

  3. The Sequester will happen, Cosmo, and maybe for the first time in a decade, the Left will not be able to spin it sufficiently to the detriment of the GOP.
    But Obama is small and petty enough to make sure he prioritizes the reduction in spending in the most painful, scurrilous way possible, just to try to keep up the blame game.
    I know, the cuts are supposed to be across the board. But just watch.

    As for guns and rape, the Left is indeed dancing as fast as they can, but they’re completely out of sync. They even went so far as to try to spin the recent Rape remarks from Beckel that you mentioned as being simply from a “Fox Host”.
    No (D).
    Not the incredibly Liberal Democrat host. Just “Fox host”.
    I’d say something about them having no shame, but that’s almost trite by now.

    Keep up the pressure, Hoss!

      You know that I’ve been rooting for these cuts for a while and we should take any cuts we can because we’re past the point of painless cuts. Let It Burn!

      I’ve been skeptical in the past that Republicans would be willing to let it happen and they’ve caved every time but I’m starting to believe, like you, that this will finally happen. The clock is ticking.
