Well, it is that time of year again and I will go out and make my prediction on who will win the presidency next Tuesday. Members of my family know what I am predicting today since last winter! I said back during the primaries that the establishment Republicans would not choose a true conservative to lead their party this year because they know they are going to win! Yes, you read that right. The establishment realizes, as I do, that even a born again rapist loving conservative clown could win the election against the most failed presidency of all time. Jimmy Carter looks like Lincoln compared to this moron-in-chief, and everyone knows it! So I said, that the last thing that Republicans want to win is another Reagan type Tea Party candidate, because honestly, they despise main street Americans and true conservatives more than they do Obama and leftists! So I predicted that the Republicans would do all they could do to make sure Palin would not run, nor would Huckabee, and that what conservatives would run, would knock each other out, allowing a liberal Rockefeller Republican to gain the nomination. If they thought for one minute that Obama was going to win, they would have all rallied around Rick Santorum or Representative Bachman and made sure that they got the nomination. They would do it to make sure that the Tea Party movement would die forever! Establishment Republicans, like Karl Rove HATE the Tea Party, or anyone who wants smaller government and a balanced budget. After all, it was Rove that gave us Obama, after insuring that the original moron, George Bush, got elected. I predicted in 2004, that Bush would destroy conservative Republicanism. With Rove's help, he did just that. Gave us the Depression, and Obama. It was the belief that a Republican would win, that these anti-American Republicans made sure Romney would get the nod. They knew Obama was going to lose.
Well, that is my prediction.... Obama will lose in a landslide. Here is the closet map I can find I agree with:
My fear is that the Republicans will once again, think they have a mandate, just like the Obama Democrats thought they had in 2008. They had NO MANDATE! Obama's win was an Anti-Bush vote, plain and simple! The people who make up middle America are totally disgusted with both parties and are trying to kill all of them by switching back and forth, like in my thesis below, that I first understood in 1976.
In 1976 I wrote a thesis in college on predicting elections in my senior year at the University of Connecticut. My brother was going to the University of Bridgeport studying to become a psychologist. I would during off times, sit in some of his classes. I became intrigued by an idea that I started to develop in my mind. That was to be able to predict national character the same way that psychologists predicted human behavior! I became intrigued in a psychological prediction method known as the Rotter I/E scale.
I should point out that I was WRONG in 2008, My prediction then was that Obama would lose. I guess I underated just how much the media would get in bed with the guy and like traitors to the American public, refuse to vet him, as every other president was before him. Obama cannot be vetted honestly and win a national election. He is a communist, and we are not yet ready to vote for a communist.... We will be someday, but not yet.
Overview of Theory When Rotter developed his Social Learning Theory, the dominant perspective in clinical psychology at the time was Freud's Psychoanalysis, which focused on people's deep-seated instinctual motives as determining behavior. Individuals were seen as being naive to their unconscious impulses, and treatment required long-term analysis of childhood experience. Even learning approaches at the time were dominated by drive theory, which held that people are motivated by physiologically based impulses that press the individual to satisfy them. In developing Social Learning Theory, Rotter departed from instinct-based Psychoanalysis and drive-based behaviorism. He believed that a psychological theory should have a psychological motivational principle. Rotter chose the empirical law of effect as his motivating factor. The law of effect states that people are motivated to seek out positive stimulation, or reinforcement, and to avoid unpleasant stimulation. Rotter combined behaviorism and the study of personality, without relying on physiological instincts or drives as a motive force.
The main idea in Julian Rotter's Social Learning Theory is that personality represents an interaction of the individual with his or her environment. One cannot speak of a personality, internal to the individual, that is independent of the environment. Neither can one focus on behavior as being an automatic response to an objective set of environmental stimuli. Rather, to understand behavior, one must take both the individual (i.e., his or her life history of learning and experiences) and the environment (i.e., those stimuli that the person is aware of and responding to) into account. Rotter describes personality as a relatively stable set of potentials for responding to situations in a particular way. (Read entire article, click here)
Rotter developed an Internal/External scale for people. Internals believe that they choose their destiny, and that God (if they accepted one) allows each one of us to choose our own destiny. An Internal type is ruled by very little chance, mostly it is their own choices that rules their destiny. Jews, Germans, Chinese, and especially WASPS (white Anglo/Saxon white people) score very high in the Internal scale. Most leaders of companies or even governments tend to score high on the Rotter I/E scale. Mediterranean , African, Slavic/Russian, and Arab people scored high on the External scale. Externals are fatalist that deem that fate is the major reason for their lives. God decides for them, or at least fate does. Catholicism and its adherents score very high in the “external” scale. The best way to describe an Internal is what is referred to the Puritan or Protestant work ethic… Work hard and you will succeed. WASP Americans built this country and score very high as Internal. Irish Catholics however, scores External! Therefore, do most black Americans, Latinos (with the exception of Cubans) and Muslims (again except for Pakistani Muslims that score very “Internal”).
I thought that our country and our elections could be predicted by the percentage of people who were Internal versus External. Republicans are Internals, Democrats Externals. I told Dr Gerson, head of UCONN’s PoliSci department what I wanted to write about. He could get me a meeting with Professor Rotter (who was so famous by now, I have since learned was an honor). Rotter liked my idea! He had already thought of it! He asked me another question however, that changed my entire thinking. He said, “you know there is another factor you are discounting in human nature”. “What was that,” I asked perplexed? Many people in a multi-cultural society like America are both Internal AND External, and they bounce back and forth between the extremes trying to find balance (this is called cognitive dissonance.) You know, the nun becomes a prostitute, the thief becomes a good cop, etc. All good novels rely on this basic human instinct of switching from one end of the pendulum to the exact opposite, never finding a balance. Rotter said, “America, due to our culture can never find the middle of the road, she swings from right to left without any formula.”
I was intrigued by him and wrote my thesis based on much of his teachings: I wrote, in short, that America will swing radically from the Right to the Left and back to right again, but because more External types are moving here and gaining in population, namely Latin, African and Muslims, each switch back to the right would be less aggressive than prior swings and eventually, we would become a totally external socialist nation like the Soviet Union.
At this same time in my life, by the way, I was learning the incredible truth about America’s national identity of being “lost” Israel of the Bible and that the God was real! Until 1976, I was an atheist, by 1978, I would never question again who God was and that He was! I would often question God in my struggles with Him, but never questioned again that God was not real! Part of this education was the realization that the United States (Israel in the Bible) was destined to be conquered by foreigners living among us that would eventually rule over us! This is found in Leviticus chapter 26, and now I understood that Dr Rotter gave me the method how God would accomplish it.
In 1976, I was a young Republican who supported Ronald Reagan over President Ford and I was not very popular in the party that year. Then again, neither was Reagan! When he lost to Ford, I realized that according to my new theory, Jimmy Carter, a liberal democrat would win the Presidency that year, but after him, America would swing back to a very Conservative mode. I predicted Carter in 76 and that Reagan most likely would be president by 80 or 84. When he won the nomination in 80, I predicted Reagan. I picked him again for 84. I predicted Bush in 88 and said that if he did not maintain Reagan’s policies he would lose in 1992! I would have been correct in predicting Bush losing in 1992 (because he did not lead as a Reagan Republican) and thought he might lose until Clinton won the nomination. I saw through Bill Clinton so much, I was positive that everyone else did too and that he could not win. It would not be until 96, I surmised, that the liberals would win again. The Perot factor was vastly underrated by me! Clinton won, I had egg on my face, but my theory was on target!
I predicted Clinton in 1996 and Bush II in 2000, thinking he unlike his dad was a real Reaganite. He was not and so I predicted that he could lose in 2004 if a MODERATE democrat ran against him. Lieberman would have beat him hands down! I predicted, on Racerap.com in 2004 that Bush was probably going to destroy the Republican party and that if Hillary got the nod, she would be president. We will see this tuesday if I am right or wrong.
If Jesus Christ were running for president, would the American
people elect Him to the highest office in the land? What kind of leader
would He be? What platform and constitution would He adopt?

Jesus Christ's leadership skills are world-renowned, and He remains
one of the most respected leaders of all time. He is the ultimate model
of right leadership.
He is uncompromising but compassionate, diligent but patient,
knowledgeable but understanding, fervent but sympathetic, persevering
but persuadable, determined but easily entreated, persuasive but not
dictatorial, hospitable but not invasive, and self-controlled but not
He is the perfect leader with perfect integrity, compassion and love for all mankind (John 3:16 ).
He clothes Himself with perfect ethics, virtue, truthfulness and moral
righteousness. He treats others the way any of us would want to be
treated, with equal fairness, compassion and concern for all (Luke 6:31 ). He cares for the plight of the widows, elderly and disadvantaged (James 1:27 ).
His willingness to sacrifice Himself for the betterment of those
under His rule was dramatically established when He voluntarily followed
through with His and His Father's plan to offer up His own life for the
sins of all mankind (Hebrews 7:26-28 ; Revelation 13:8; Hebrews 12:2).
He resolutely confirmed His unwavering loyalty to God, His
government and His master plan while being cross examined by the Roman
governor Pontius Pilate just before He was sentenced to a brutal
scourging and painful death. "My kingdom is not of this world," He told
Pilate. "If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight . . .
but now My kingdom is not from here" (John 18:36).
With these kinds of leadership skills and a platform based on
biblical principles, He would boldly move society in a new, more
righteous and godly direction
The Bishop E.W. Jackson, founder of Chesapeake, Virginia-based Exodus Faith Ministries, recently
released a controversial video calling for African Americans to make a
mass exodus from the Democratic Party. Throughout the clip, Jackson
delivers stinging blows to both liberals and the African Americans who
continue to support them, while decrying what he sees as a “slavish
devotion to the Democrat Party.”
“They have insulted us, used us, and manipulated us. They have
saturated the black community with ridiculous lies,” he said, speaking
directly to the black community. ”They think we are stupid and that
these lies will hold us captive while they violate everything we believe
Jackson went into detail in the video, taking aim at the “unholy
alliance” that he sees between Democrats, faux-civil rights leaders and
“The Democratic Party has created an unholy alliance between certain
so-called civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood, which has killed
unborn black babies by the tens of millions,” he proclaimed.
The businesses that support and lobby for so-called free trade are
always trying to wrap themselves in Ronald Reagan. But that’s false
because Reagan would not have allowed America to be cheated coming and
going by foreign countries.
Of course, Reagan was for international trade, but he did not see it
or use it as a steppingstone to global governance, accepting cheating by
foreign countries, rules set by panels of countries that hate and envy
us, or any vision of globalism. Reagan looked upon foreign trade as a
component of American economic and military superiority and as a vehicle
to bring down the Soviet Union, otherwise known as the “evil empire.”
Reagan stood for the United States maintaining a strong industrial
base not only because that translates into good jobs for Americans and
an expansion of the middle class. Reagan came from the generation who
understood that America’s World War II victory was based on our
tremendous manufacturing industry that overnight turned from producing
automobiles into military weapons and tractors into tanks.
Reagan signed a Buy America policy for federal highway and transit
projects. No way would he have approved building a Keystone XL oil
pipeline with steel pipe imported from a Russian-owned mill or a San
Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge assembled from steel sections made in
In a generally well-written autobiography being released Tuesday, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., proclaims his love for his wife and family, his belief that God directs all aspects of his life and his passion for the Miami Dolphins.
The next paragraph makes clear that Rubio’s parents were both Cuban citizens, not United States citizens, when he was born:
My parents had lived in America for nearly two decades. It was clear that Cuba had become a thoroughly totalitarian state, and would likely remain so for some time. They had endured many disappointments, and their lives would never be easy. But slowly and surely they made a better life for our family than they had had as children, or could have ever been possible for them in Cuba. Three of their children were born Americans. Mario [the Senator’s older brother, born in Cuba] had naturalized after returning from the army. And in 1975, they, too, became citizens of the United States.
As WND reported, attorney Larry Klayman argued today before Florida Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis in the presidential eligibility case brought by Democrat voter Michael Voeltz that Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution requires a person eligible to be president to be born to parents who are each U.S. citizens at the time of the birth.
Moments after Mitt Romney’s landslide victory in the Florida Republican Primary, WND Editor Joseph Farah declared on national television that Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio would not be a good selection for vice president because he’s not a natural-born citizen of the U.S., and therefore is not legally qualified to hold the office.
“Rubio’s not eligible … because he’s not a natural-born citizen,” Farah told Sean Hannity on the Fox News Channel. Read More>>>>
More questions are being raised about presidential candidate Mitt Romney's religion after it was revealed that he helped baptise his adamantly atheist father-in-law years after the man had died.
Edward Roderick Davies was Ann Romney's father and died in 1992 after living as a staunch atheist all his life.
Recently-discovered records show that, in keeping with their controversial tradition of posthumously baptising non-Mormons, a ceremony was held to invite Mr Davies into the Church of Latter Day Saints one year after he died.
Former Democratic President Bill Clinton has come out swinging at Congress, telling The National Memo’s Joe Conason that he would take decisive action if no debt deal is reached by the August 2 deadline. Clinton says that if he were in Obama’s situation, he’d invoke the Fourteenth Amendment to raise America’s debt ceiling “without hesitation, and force the courts to stop me.”
Clinton, who came out strongly against Republicans in an exclusive interview with The National Memo on Monday, said: Read More>>>>>
Since many don't have good memories, The Plain Truth wants to remind everyone that although Rick Perry wants to outlaw abortion, he wants to FORCE YOUR 12 year old daughter to get the HPV vaccine! Another RHINO we don't need.
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., says President Obama has neglected to clearly demonstrate he's eligible to hold his office, and says it would be simple for him to do so.
"It's an interesting issue that has gone on for so long and it's one that the president could have solved very early on," Bachmann told Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro last night.
"All he had to do is just answer some questions and show his [long-form birth] document and then have people do an attestation that this in fact is a legal document and it's over, it's done. And I think the president has neglected to focus on answering that question for people, and that's why a lot of people still have it lingering in their minds. None of us can prove, none of us can do attestation. Only the president and someone who is legally tasked with attesting to the validity of that document can do that, and I think that's what the president should do."
I recently met with a conservative Texas Congressman. I will not reveal his name because he did not give me permission and because it’s not the first time I have heard what he told me concerning the disappointing performance of Republican House Leadership since they were returned to power.
“What is it about the November election that Republican leadership doesn’t understand?” That is the first question I ask any Republican elected official who works in Washington. Each response from the numerous conservative Congressmen has been some variation of “they just don’t get it.” The Congressman who I met with said basically what I already knew, “House leadership has no plan to cut spending, repeal ObamaCare and is not conservative.”
Beyond that, the Congressman reported that he’s even heard Speaker Boehner speak derogatorily of the tea party behind closed doors. I’m not surprised. I have often said the Republican elite would like to see the tea party movement go away much more than the Democrats. I spoke last month with another Texas conservative Congressman who reported that Boehner has surrounded himself with “yes” men who are not conservatives and, if they once were, have sold their souls for leadership positions. Do you hear me Jeb Hensarling?
It’s this simple, the House Republican leaders have no plan to cut real federal spending or to repeal ObamaCare. Repealing or defunding ObamaCare was the ONE priority Americans sent the Republicans to do when they were returned to power in the House. I began to sense how things would be when Republicans pledged to cut spending by only $100 billion. $100 billion? Wow. Veni, vidi, durmi! I came, I saw, I yawned! We have a $1.65 TRILLION deficit this year alone! And, of course, Republican leadership has already retreated from the $100 billion to a measly $51 billion. You have to hand it to Republicans, they never fail to disappoint!
It's unlikely that Howard Dean intended to expose one of his party's greatest weaknesses in August 2009 when he explained why Obamacare could not include a tort reform provision that experts said could save up to $400 billion in health care costs.
Speaking at a Northern Virginia town hall meeting, the former Democratic presidential candidate and Democratic National Committee chairman stunned many in the nation's capitol with these unexpected words:
"Here's why tort reform is not in the bill. When you go to pass a really enormous bill like that, the more stuff you put into it, the more enemies you make. And the reason the tort reform is not in the bill is because the people who wrote it did not want to take on the trial lawyers in addition to everyone else they were taking on and that is the plain and simple truth."
(CNN) -- Delaware authorities are investigating the circumstances surrounding the recent discovery of the body of a former Pentagon official in a landfill, according to a statement released Monday by the Newark, Delaware, Police Department.
The Delaware medical examiner's office has ruled the death of 66-year-old John P. Wheeler a homicide. Wheeler was discovered at Wilmington's Cherry Island Landfill on December 31.
Wheeler, who lived in New Castle, worked under three Republican presidents -- Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush. He served as a special assistant to the Air Force secretary from 2005 to 2008.
Among other things, he also served as head of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and was the first chairman of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
Subject: Senator Alan Simpson Calls Seniors 'Greediest Generation'
Let’s get a few things straight…
As a career politician, you have been on the public dole for FIFTY YEARS… I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63)…
My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made Bernie Madoff proud…
Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and your ilk pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age 67. NOW, you and your shill commission is proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN…
I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now you morons propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because you idiots mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal money from Medicare to pay the bills…
I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you incompetent bastards spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay of YOUR debt…
To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit” on your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU…
How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?
At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?
How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?
What cuts in YOUR retirement and health care benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or, as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?
It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators who are “greedy”. It is you and they who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes. That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.
And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.
PHILADELPHIA - Fox 29 News ran into a New Black Panther Party member outside as the same Philadelphia polling place where voter intimidation was reported two years ago. He was handing out a sample ballot for the Democrats.
The man was seen outside the polling place in North Philadelphia was wearing a pin that indicated his party affiliation, along with a black hat, sunglasses and leather coat.
We spoke with the man briefly ( see video to the left) and asked him why he was standing in front of the poll doors. His response was, "no comment."
We then asked him if he was at the polls representing the New Black Panther Party and if his panther label button was a symbol of the party. We received no answer.
A check with Philadelphia election officials revealed no voter intimidation reports at the polling location related to the man.
But we were able to obtain one of the sample ballots the man was handing out to voters. It was a sample Democratic ticket with Joe Sestak, Dan Onorato, Bob Brady and Curtis Thomas on the ballot.
In footage obtained by Fox News back in 2008, two members of the New Black Panther Party stood outside the same polling place shaking a Billy club and allegedly intimidating voters.
The case was ultimately dropped by the Department of Justice after President Obama's administration came into power, although controversy surrounding the incident's handling has persisted.
Just last month Attorney General Eric Holder was defending the Justice Department's performance on the matter, saying the top career person in the civil rights division made the decision to seek an injunction against one person.
Virginia Beach is the biggest city in Virginia, and the hometown of the state's current Republican Governor, Bob McDonnell. Now it's also home to the latest example of a racist email forward destroying a prominent conservative's political credibility and possibly career.
As the progressive Blue Virgina blog reported Monday -- and I independently confirmed from one of the recipients Tuesday -- Virginia Beach Republican Party chair Dave Bartholomew forwarded a racist email comparing African Americans to dogs. The email, subject line "my, dog," consists of a racist parable about African Americans and welfare. In the first 24 hours since the email came to light, Democrats condemned Bartholomew and he resigned his position with the Republican Party.
DILLINGHAM, Alaska (Aug. 11) -- Former Sen. Ted Stevens lay dead in the mangled fuselage of the plane. A 13-year-old boy escaped death but watched his father die a few feet away. Medical workers spent the miserable night tending to survivors' broken bones amid a huge slick of fuel that coated a muddy mountainside.
The gruesome details of the plane crash that killed Stevens and four others emerged as investigators tried to figure out how the float plane crashed into a mountain during a fishing trip. Three teenagers and their parents were on the plane, including the former head of NASA. MORE
Of all the offspring of presidents in recent memory, Chelsea Clinton was the best first child, according to Secret Service agents.
“In my career, Chelsea Clinton did it the best,” says an agent familiar with both her detail and the Bush twins’ details. “Treated the detail right, told them what was going on, never gave problems that I knew of.”
