The Election Is Over, Not The War

The Election Is Over, Not The War

The election is over, the war is not, and we must understand that. It’s imperative we remain focused and energized. We must realize who our enemy is – what their end goal is and what they will do to accomplish same. There isn’t time for hand wringing, craziness, and/or loyalty to those responsible for the loss of this election.

The next two years are critical. As a close friend and colleague wrote this morning, for the next two years we must, “Fire and fall back. Inflict maximum damage on the enemy, but fall back on prepared positions, and repeat this process until reinforcements arrive.” Which include Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Obamacare, and the economy.

I have been on record since March 2009 that the Republican Party hierarchy was not going to run a candidate who had a chance of winning. Even though on election eve I told one person Mitt Romney was rumored to have a chance and on election morning I told a friend that I thought the potential for surprise existed.

Keep in mind that Romney lost to John McCain who lost to Obama in 2008. And not unlike McCain, the only reason Romney did as well as he did was because he had Paul Ryan as his Sarah Palin.

Romney was a dead man walking until the first debate when Obama showed up in what some believe was a drug-induced stupor. Romney never successfully argued the points of true importance for the majority of the people. And justifiably so – the conservative base never warmed to him.

There are only two ways a president with Obama’s record could win. The one, of course, to have massive election fraud take place – the other is to run a candidate worse than him against him. Karl Rove, Reince Preibus, and those who view Jeb Bush as the savior in 2016 chose the latter of the two options.

Let’s say for the sake of argument election fraud did take place. The proportions of fraud to make that happen would be huge and obvious. I’m not saying dead people didn’t vote nor am I saying that there wasn’t vote manipulation – but I am saying for it to happen on the scale necessary to be effective the Republican hierarchy would have had to be aware.

And let’s say for the sake of argument that the Republican hierarchy was aware – which certainly seems to be the case with Congressman Allen West. Why aren’t they pushing back? Why weren’t they in front of judges before the ink dried on the results’ certification papers? Why aren’t the Romney people screaming they were robbed? How could someone as sharp as Romney is reported to be not have a contingency plan in place for such a potential eventuality? Are we to believe we thought of something his high-paid professionals didn’t?

If we can spend the next four years trying to prove they stole the election, we’ll waste time, energy, and money – while Obama has a field day for the next four years as Congressional Republicans capitulate to his every demand.

In the short term we must begin immediately to vet and put in place candidates for the 2014 elections. It is important for us to remember that Obamacare is not yet the law of the land and that we can stop it from becoming same.

Constitutional scholar and author of “Defend Your Healthcare” Betsy McCaughey told me that there are substantial legal challenges to Obamacare making their way through the courts – that have a very good chance of being successful.

Section 1311 of Obamacare allows the federal government to dictate how doctors treat privately insured patients. Which means at the heart of Obamacare Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services (or her replacement), can and will limit individual healthcare consumption. SCOTUS denied such far-reaching powers in Gonzales vs. Oregon and we anticipate it doing so again.

Which is why we must take control of the Senate in 2014 and increase the number of conservatives in the House. And it is critical that we elect conservatives – not those that Rove, the RNC, and GOP tell us we must vote for.

The next two years are critical. As a close friend and colleague wrote this morning, for the next two years we must, “Fire and fall back. Inflict maximum damage on the enemy, but fall back on prepared positions, and repeat this process until reinforcements arrive.” Which include Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Obamacare, and the economy.

That means we cannot suffer John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, et al, to surrender and capitulate. We must be focused – not run helter-skelter investing energy into that which will pay few, if any, dividends.

Our enemy may be Obama, but his enablers are those in Republican leadership. They can say what they want but Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney prove otherwise. It is time for the so-called Republican leadership to step aside or be replaced.

And if they fight to undermine our efforts, as I suspect they will, I believe it will be time to form a third party. We do not owe our allegiance to those who treat us like Democrats treat their blacks.

    Everything I have seen, any factual info I have found , leads me to believe this election and all that came before was staged. This duping of the American people was accomplished by both parties. It is time for a third party or time for a new republician infrastructure.

    Mychal: Just a couple of points looking for answers?

    1.After four years of class warfare and attacks on capitalism by BHO, the republicans choose the poster child for corporate greed. Does that sound like a winning plan? This is not an indictment of Romney, but an observation of liberal perception.
    2. The architect Karl Rove has been instrumental in every election since Bush I. We have not had a conservative president since Reagan. The last two RNC presidential candidates were certified progressive, big government RHINO's in a time when America was desperate for financially conservative options. What is Mr. Rove really trying to design?
    3. The third party option has been tried and failed and only benifits the liberals. Why would we not take the intellegent path of least resistance of taking our party back?
    4. Are Mormans Christains? Not that it matter?

    • Sam November 14, 2012 at 7:31 pm #

      I have been told by Mormons that they believe that Jesus Christ died for our salvation and that whoever believes in Him will have everlasting life. This is the foundation of Christianity. A Mormon told me that there are Mormon cults and polygamists but that is NOT what most of them believe.

    Someone wrote sometime ago that he would vote for Romney, not because he was in favor of him, but that if he was in a train heading for a cliff, he would rather go ten mph rather one hundred mph with Obama. In my opinion the ratio would be 75 mph to 100 mph. The Republican party, to which I have belonged ever since I first voted, has a leadership which has a pathological fear of nominating a true conservative for President. The bigwigs of both parties are big government lackeys, the only disagreement is how fast can the USA become a socialist state, not whether we should or not. Any candidate who shows any patriotism and conservative tendencies is immediately demonized by both parties, such as Michelle Bachman and Herman Cain. I think the time for a third party (Tea party?) has definitely come. Let the Rep/Dem establishment meander along down the socialist trail. Unite the blue dog Dems, the Tea partiers and go after the Independent voters. We can’t do any worse than we have the last 2 Presidential elections. To re-elect a man who makes us long for the good old days under Jimmy Carter is mind boggling. If the voters are that stupid, how hard can it be to convince them that both major parties are living on borrowed time?

    What are your thoughts of the numerous states filing petitions to secede?

    • Terry Wyatt November 14, 2012 at 4:26 am #

      Dena, the Civil War pretty much answered your question (or was supposed to have). No way is the Obama administration going to let the 5th largest economy in the world (Texas) leave the tax roles by giving them the permission to peacefully leave the union, much less the other 17 or whatever the current count is. It makes no difference what rights the constitution gave us. The constitution is being shredded right in front of us and congress is as worthless as tits on a boar (pardon the southern analogy if it offends you. That was not my intent) for all the good they are doing and have done the last four years.

      What we are seeing is the "fundamental change" of our nation and no protection from it. With the popular "executive orders" bypassing the legislative and judicial branches why don't we start paying down the debt by eliminating congress? We're sure not getting our monies worth now. This eating an elephant one bite at a time program by Obama is destroying our nation. The bottom feeders are rising to the top.

      During the next four years in addition to Obamacare kicking in the first of next year (wait till you hear the screaming when that happens) we are going to see the attempt to void our second amendment rights. That’s when the feces is going to hit the whirling propeller and not with learned legal discussion and argument.

      All this Petraeus and now Allen bull is doing is giving the left leaning media something else to put on the front pages instead of the real issues. Both generals violated the USMJ and they knew it and know it. Generals don’t get court marshaled; they just “fade away” to quote General MacArthur. I have no idea if the CIA has any regulations about a little hallelujah in the honey suckle or not. The military can handle this issue without any interference from this administration. It’s happened before and will happen again (if there's a military leftafter the dust settles). The CIA can do whatever it is they are supposed to do in cases like this. If this turns out to be another Tokyo Rose, there’s a way to handle that too. I suspect it's just a little high level smacky kiss and huggy bear.

      If some real leader doesn’t stand up that we can follow, we can all get used to eating out of trash cans and watching our parents and grandparents die of pneumonia or flea bites. The clock is ticking and it’s almost midnight when the changes will happen.

    • Dena E. Casey November 14, 2012 at 7:55 am #

    I agree, The establishment Republicans are responsible for 8 years of a leftist Obama administration. It cannot even be argued that even Bush wasn't an establishment Republican. I know that many people liked Bush, but look at the Bush years, and what his administration brought us. The Dept. of Homeland Security, The Patriot Act, and the growth of big government. The Patriot Act has provisions in it that are Un-Constitutional. The TSA is but one outgrowth of all of the above. This is where we are. The establishment Republicans have brought us here. The question is, where do we go from here?

    Mitt Romney is a good man and would be a good perhaps great President. I was devastated by his defeat. When my husband came home the night of the election he found me crying. I couldn't stop crying. Here I am, a 75 year old woman who has voted in every election since John F. Kennedy. Never have I felt so cheated. Obama stole the election – it's pretty common knowledge. What can be done about it? Surely we, the American people, can do something. This cannot happen again. I am scared. Will I be allowed to live if I have to spend time in hospital? Or will doctors be told "let her die – she's just a old woman?" Think about what I've written. Do you agree?

    • kc November 13, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

      I am very skeptical of the actual results of the election – people on the east coast that were really hit by Sandy, 95% at least, were not able to get out of their homes and did not have operating vehicles to drive to get to out to vote. Also, how can people who are not even citizens vote? I guess it only makes sense since Obama isn’t even a citizen – he gets to run for president not just once but twice and actually become president.

      • kc November 13, 2012 at 3:03 pm #

        I understand her anguish – “An Arizona woman, in despair at the re-election of Democratic President Barack Obama, ran down her husband with the family car in suburban Phoenix on Saturday because he failed to vote in the election, police said on Monday.”

            You failed to “read” and understand what I said. I said, I understand her anguish; I did not say that she should have gone as far as she did nor is it something that I would do – I hope that I wouldn’t. Also, the statment was expressing how angry people are / I am! I mean, since Obama became president, he has not only divided us into more fragments; but he has done a damn good job of infusing deeper anger, and some times this anger causes an intense need to shout at people because they don’t listen and or they willingly reject the truth, and at some point the anger turns into bitterness, inner rage and possibly the need the to inflict some hurt / pain on someone…Hopefully, in situations like this one, we choose to defuse ourselves by praying, seeking God, or some sane way for someone who is not a Christian.

      I’m just a young 70 Judy and I share your fears. If I have another heart attack will I just be turned into pig food or maybe Solyent Green? What if my 5th leg operation isn’t enough and I need a 6th? Do I just watch it turn black with gangrene and fall off before it kills me? Life is more precious to me now that I’m a senior than at any other time in my life. I’m looking at the last scoop of chocolate cake and ice cream and I don’t want to finish dinner just yet.

  10. Raffaela V. DiBella November 13, 2012 at 3:27 pm #

    Mychal, I am going to post, in quotation marks, the following, because I believe this article points out some very interesting facts about why so many of us don't believe Obama is the legitimate President after Nov. 6th voting: "Here are some facts to consider:

    " The Obama campaign accepted at least some foreign campaign cash – willingly and knowingly. The campaign website could have prohibited it. It did not. In other words, it deliberately left open the door for illegal foreign contributions in its “by any means necessary” quest for re-election. WND has proven that by actually contributing under the name Osama bin Laden from a Pakistani IP address, with a phony physical address and other neon-lit red flags in hopes of catching attention. Obama accepted illegal foreign contributions in 2008 without penalty, so why would anyone expect him not to repeat his crime in 2012? No one can know the extent of the fraud, because Obama has refused to release the identity of donors of $200 or less – yet he boasts that most of the money he collected was in small amounts.

    James O’Keefe and Project Veritas spent months heroically proving the absolute willingness and eagerness of Democratic operatives to commit voter fraud – especially by having people cast multiple votes.

    Military ballots were systematically denied active-duty servicemen and women around the world. This would be a scandal if it happened once. But it has become the norm when Democrats are in charge of the Defense Department. It would be a scandal if it were due to incompetence. But it appears to be a deliberate effort to suppress the military vote. It would be a scandal if it were not a close election. But it was.

    Prior to the election, Democrats fought for open voting requiring no identification – particularly photo ID. Coincidentally, Obama won every state that didn’t fully require photo ID to vote. Democrats contended that voter ID laws suppress the vote. But they do not. They only suppress the illegal vote.

    Across Philadelphia, GOP poll inspectors were forcibly (and illegally) removed from polling locations. Coincidentally (or not), Obama received “astronomical” numbers in those very same regions, including locations where he received “over 99 percent” of the vote. Ward 4, which also had a poll watcher dressed in Obama attire, went massively for Obama. Obama received 99.5 percent of the vote, defeating Romney 9,955 to 55.

    Obama also won 99.8 percent of the vote in 44 Cleveland districts. In another Ohio county, Obama won with 108 percent of the voters registered.

    Obama received 10 million fewer votes than he did in 2008. Romney received 3 million fewer votes than McCain. Obama won in the four critical swing states by a grand total of 500,000 votes.

    Some 5 million independents changed their votes from Obama to Romney in 2012. So Romney started the day 2.5 million votes ahead of where McCain was in 2008, as Jack Wheeler points out. This means that 5.5 million Republican voters are not accounted for. Either they didn’t show up at the polls or their votes were not counted. Does anyone believe there was less enthusiasm by Republicans about this election than for the one in 2008?

    I could go on and on, but you get the point. In such a close election, these anomalies are unacceptable. In an election in which all the voter fraud appears to be perpetrated by one side, it could more than make the difference in the race. Worse yet, will an unscrupulous party that would resort to such crimes to win ever permit another free and fair election in the future – especially if the crimes are not exposed and punished severely?"

    I think I have agreed with all of your columns until this one. Mitt Romney was an excellent candidate against Obama. He was the total opposite of Obama. He was a true Christian, a traceable background, believed in the Constitution, a proven background and a non racist bone in his body. The problem was that the Republican heirarchy didn't want him.

    • Alex November 13, 2012 at 9:40 am #

      I agree Janice. Mitt was a great man to lead our nation. I think the majority of the people in the US live with blinders on. Unfortunately, I think our Country will have to bear more hardship before we wake up and change the direction we are going in.

    • Terry Wyatt November 13, 2012 at 3:05 pm #

      I agree Janice. Mitt wasn't my first choise, but he is miles ahead of Obama in every way. Our problem is the Republican Party who is either afraid of him or of losing their cushy job (or both)s. They won't stand up and fight the man no matter what crimes he commits. Maybe not Mr. Popular but Newt would be better in a fight with Obama. We need a street fighter, not a nice guy.

      Ms Hurst, it's my opinion that the issue Mr Massie speaks of is not the man who ran for office, but the institution that allows such odd voting results to have happened.

      A simplistic but reasonable analogy is this: If a child refuses to turn in homework, fails pop quizzes and displays poor levels of respect for the institution he or she is enrolled in, would it not be reason to question why that child has been selected as class valedictorian? Would we not reasonably wonder whether or not the selection process is valid?

      Also as he states, I agree that now is not the time to chase up on this particular election. I think it's time to revise the process and also the parties that have been part of this process for a very long time.

      Janice K. Hurst,

      Mr. Romney seems like a pretty stand-up guy to me. I’m not free to consider him a “true Christian,” however, if I use the Biblical text as the Pole Star for clarity juxtaposed with his stated beliefs. In my voting consideration, I was not casting a vote in order to see the white smoke rising, iow, I was not voting for the next Pope. To me, Mr. Obama seems even more sinister, as if that were possible, in light of Mr. Romney’s seemingly good character.

      • sumitch November 13, 2012 at 11:51 pm #

    • bordercollieman November 13, 2012 at 8:43 pm #

      Dear Janice,

      Mitt Romney, although a likable and capable man, is not in any way, shape, manner of form a Christian of any kind. He is a Mormon. Mormons are not Christians. They have a different Jesus, a different God and a different Gospel. I voted for him because I did not want Obama to have additional opportunities to carry our his planned destruction of America as we have known her. Would he have been a better president? No one knows, and we won’t have the opportunity to find out. But I thought he would have been and hoped he would have the chance to lead America back to at least dignity and respect. Obama has destroyed the dignity and statesmanship of the presidency and the White House.

      • sumitch November 13, 2012 at 11:47 pm #

        I don’t recall any criteria for a presidential candidate or sitting president to be a Christian. I thought the oft quoted but nonexistent “freedom of religion” was one of this nation’s foundations. It’s neither in law nor the constitution. If we don’t want a non Christian to hold the office, look what we’ve got there now and explain that to me. And we knew about the right reverend White before Obama was elected the first time and sure did this second time.

        I don’t care if Romney worships some snake god; he’s superior to Obama in every way. I served with Mormons and my experience is that they are as fine a people as I could want for friends.
