Now that the Midterms are over have you noted that President Obama has decided to make a trip to a nation whereby he would be reconfortable at?
In truth that would be a very interesting question, but in truth he should feel right at home in a communist nation like China.
Yes, it is true President Obama cannot stay home in the United States of America because he hates to handle problems right here in the United States of America, for by President Obama going to China is in truth just plain meaningless, so why did he go to a place where he would feel compfortbale?
The Answer is very simple.
America voted for a huge red wave and now everything will be just as bad as it was on 11/3, only worse.
“...the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy." - Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope
The Old Republic suffered a silent coup, while the people think we make choices when in fact the corporatists tells us what to consume, for whom to vote, what to believe and whom to fear. After decades of voting the bums out we still have endless wars, debt and a wide array of choices, so long as we choose to stay within the narrow confines of the false left-right paradigm.
With a GOP legislative majority we can expect a change, instead of Reid tabling bills and letting the Imperial President execute the Neocon agenda, it will be Obama’s Mitch rubber-stamping it so that ‘conservatives’ can take the blame for all the failures of running a global empire threatening our security and disturbing domestic tranquility with false economics and a police state.
Tyranny is assured UNLESS liberty-loving people band together to restore Constitutional governance for a free and virtuous nation from your own neighborhood on up to dismantling the Welfare/Warfare Duopoly. Restoring sound money, free markets, The Constitutional Militia of the Several States, religious and civil liberties and a sensible foreign policy of non-interventionism backed up by the biggest baddest military on the planet; or watch the statists in both parties push their corporatist agenda to their benefit and our demise. To defeat the oligarchs, useful idiots and their fellow travelers first you MUST CRUSH the Neocons. . .for liberty!

Previously advertised content follows these updates.
Obama's fundamental transformation of America got blasted at the polls on Tuesday.
So why are Republicans, with a newly won majority in the senate, talking all gushy about a new era of getting things done?
Obama's not going to compromise.
How long will it take before weak-kneed Republicans cave in to Obama's wishes?
Or does the GOP just maintain status quo - and let Obama continue to run amok by executive order?
Nothings been fixed. There even potential for things to get worse.
Talk about it Friday at 1 o'clock eastern!
Barefoot and Gluten Free, the cookbook I am writing with Ruth Vine, released a holiday preview edition on Amazon today. So tonight we will be talking food, restrictive diets, and how to make them cooperate for a holiday filled with words other than "NO."
Also, there's a kind of major election happening tomorrow. So we'll probably talk about that a little bit. No promises...
Matt Frendewey is the National Communications Director for The American Federation for Children. Led by the NEA and AFT, the national teachers' unions boasted of spending $80 million in this election to defeat candidates who support vouchers, teacher accountability and other promising education reforms. They lost. And they lost big.
The number one target for school choice opponents was Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, an unapologetic supporter of vouchers for kids in the struggling under-performing schools. The unions spent millions to defeat Walker – three times – and they lost all three times.
The American Federation for Children and the Alliance for School Choice seek to improve our nation’s K-12 education by advancing systemic and sustainable public policy that empowers parents, particularly those in low-income families, to choose the education they determine is best for their children.
We knew the odds were against Democrats in yesterday's midterm election, and even if we hadn't known, the breathless horserace reporting of the mainstream media made sure of it. It pains us to acknowledge that the pollsters' "likely voters" predictions came true -- we allowed the Republicans to win by not casting votes of our own. Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills conduct the post-mortem and look at the few bright spots in yesterday's results. Political discussion from the progressive point of view by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group.
After a devestating loss for Democrats on Election Day allowed Republicans to take control of the House and Senate, what happens now wih immigration reform? We ask immigration attorney Matthew Kolken his thoughts on what we could expect from the President and the Republicans.
We will also discuss the latest from Mexico.
