Kevin Collins’ “Coach Is Right” is now on WesternJournalism.com. All the same great, news-breaking, liberal-busting content is here on Western Journalism just like it was back on CoachisRight.com.
New York City is a liberal cesspool. It sends some of the worst people to Washington and Albany year after year. Now New York City has elected the country’s first openly Communist mayor. Comrade Bill de Blasio, who honeymooned in Cuba, has rolled up a staggering victory. If absentee ballots were counted, it is entirely possible that he got 70% of the vote. Nevertheless, that should be a tipoff for honest analysts as to where to start looking for the true meaning of this election.
To discover how this election fits into the overall picture for the future of conservatism in America, we have to go back to the results of last year’s presidential election in the 11th Congressional District–which includes all of Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn in New York City.
The 11th sent a strong message to the GOP establishment. In the middle of trying to rebuild their lives after Super Storm Sandy, Staten Islanders, especially on the hard hit very conservative South Shore, could have been excused for not showing up to vote. In fact, there was a 14% drop in turnout on the South Shore; and that alone gave Barack Obama enough of a push to win the Island. Self-delusional Democrats are still bragging about their “big victory.”
Nevertheless, a closer look at the voting patterns in the 11th CD last year shows that 27,000 people dragged themselves to the polls, and then passed up the presidential line all together. Our fake Republican Congressman got 27% more votes than the bigger fake Republican, Willard Romney. Why? We hated the choice the GOPe forced on us.
In this year’s mayoral race here in NYC, the GOPe gave us a choice between a guy who looked like a circus clown and was contributing to Democrats as late as January, and a guy who was trying to convince us he is “more” Democrat than comrade de Blasio.
The voter turnout on Staten Island fell from 110,000 ten years ago to 70,000 this year. This should be a lesson to the GOPe; but unfortunately, it won’t be. We won’t see Staten Island featured on Karl Rove’s white board.
A “knockout game” vigilante may have decided to dispense justice upon young blacks who believe it is fun to beat up unsuspecting whites.
For obvious (PC) reasons, the “mainstream” media has decided to ignore nationwide “knockout game” assaults by black thugs upon innocent white victims. But early on Thanksgiving morning, 3 black males in their twenties reportedly stalked a prospective white victim, following him into an alley in New York’s Bronx. To the shock of the young “men” who believed they had an easy mark, the white man, described as being in his 60′s, pulled out a .45. He shot two of his attackers and pistol-whipped the third!
According to an article describing this event, “Police fear a vigilante may be on the loose, intentionally inviting wayward youth into playing the new ‘knock out’ game for the intent purposes of maiming, or perhaps even killing them.”
“Inviting wayward youth??” Wayward youth? Sounds like a description of a 10-year-old stealing an apple from a fruit stand!
This story was first reported by the Liberty Digest blog and has since gone viral across the web. Most blogs that have carried the story admit that they have not been able to confirm its validity!
If true, it’s possible that a vigilante has indeed decided to take part in the Knockout Game. If a figment of someone’s imagination, the story may be a warning to black thugs that they had better find other ways to amuse themselves lest they one day become the targets rather than the attackers.

US military spokesman Lt. Col. J. Todd Breasseale, blew off a legitimate editor’s query concerning analysis of the “computer generated forgery” posted online by the White House as being mere nonsense. “We can only assume that your query is not a legitimate question and is some sort of nonsensical joke,” Breasseale commented via Email to Sharon Rondeau, editor of The Post & Email. He is calling her very reasonable inquiry nothing more than a web “absurdity”. “We are happy to consider reality-based requests, but do not entertain absurdities from the web,” replied “Todd” in an insulting try at familiarity.
When Editor Rondeau replied, “It is absolutely not a joke,” the military mouthpiece came back with merely, “noted,” to her follow up question about the military’s possible analysis of the Obama birth certificate image posted online by someone in or representing the White House on April 27, 2011, as well as the Obama Selective Service registration. “Why has that not been done?” Rondeau asked Public Affairs officer Lt. Col. Catherine Wilkinson who evidently passed off this inquiry to Breasseale. So much for that; our military “has remained silent” says the CT editor of The Post & Email.
Meanwhile, the 69 page affidavit of lead investigator Mike Zullo is filed as evidence in the Alabama Supreme Court’s review of findings by a lower court which also tossed inquiry into authenticity of the WH computer image. The Zullo court document reads, at point # 26: “All in attendance agreed unanimously that the WH computer image, pdf file contained anomalies that were un-explainable unless the document had been fabricated piecemeal by human intervention, rather than being copied from a genuine paper document”. Zullo is presenting the results of months of investigation by the Sheriff Arpaio forensic team into the nine layered computer image put on the official WH website. The team of long time forensic and law enforcement investigators, retired military members, physicians, and computer CEO’s and attorneys concluded “the certificate of live birth. . .is not a scan of an original paper birth certificate.”
The Zullo affidavit presents to the court this statement: “fabricated forgery-violation of the AZ criminal statue and the federal statues…may have taken place.” The Arpaio team is calling for a full blown Congressional investigation as the nation awaits the decision of the Alabama Supreme Court. At point # 35 is this lightening bolt: “It was now demonstrated beyond probable cause that the WH website document was an utter forgery.” The forensic team suggests that crimes may involve “fraudulent creation of an official document, forgery of a governmental birth record, and deception of voters and state election commissioners across the country.” In total, 207 points of assertion are contained in the Zullo sworn statement. In spite of the fact that SEVENTEEN different records never have been released by President Barack Obama, (at point # 207), the military spokesman known as “Todd,” along with the mainstream media, Congress, and nationwide elected officials continue to ignore what is going on in the Alabama Supreme Court proceedings.
Perhaps most troubling is the fact that the Obama passport records have never been released to the American public, nor have the incoming INS foreign flight passenger cards for the Obama birth week of August 2, 1961, ever been found! The Zullo investigators say in their court evidentiary document that these flight manifest identifications are “completely missing from the microfilm roll” of the INS.
Web absurdities, anomalies, a nine page computer generated forgery? Will we every know?

Surfacing this week are two seemingly unrelated events, but both carry the glaring theme of the federal government’s gross intrusion into the private lives of families and into the workings of local and state governments nationwide. The long tentacles of the US Department of Justice appear to be stifling parental dissent against Common Core, while the US Department of Fish and Wildlife continues to force predatory wolf packs into already inundated Western rural communities and wilderness areas.
The recent disappearance and death of two female hikers in and around the Boise, ID Craters of the Moon hiking trails are causing outrage among residents who fear a massive scale cover up of what really happened to the two women. The body of Amy Linkert has been found, but attempts to find out what really happened to Dr. JoElliot-Blakeslee, an employee of the Oregon Dept. of Corrections, are hitting major stonewalling by authorities who should be in the know. Retired US Fish & Wildlife Biologist Jim Beers (email@example.com) and other area citizens fear that a marauding wolf pack or other predators like a bear or a cougar may have attacked, killed and eaten the women. “Distortions of the evidence to exonerate the wolves” may serve the larger aim of the feds who want the Gray Wolf to remain listed on the Endangered Species registry. Local residents want local control of wolf packs; they are demanding that wolf packs in their local zones be kept under jurisdiction of their local authorities. But the back story really may involve a federal effort to push Western ranchers, homeowners, hikers, and nature lovers indoors and off of ever shrinking American lands in order to give more control to the federal government!
US citizens nationwide are being urged by Western residents to comment at this address: http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=FWS-HQ-ES-2013-0073 by the December 17, 2013 deadline for public comments. Two talking points include the fact that the Gray Wolf is not in danger of extinction. In fact, populations now far exceed the numbers originally proposed for the recovery effort. Beers warns that wolf populations have inundated the states of MT, ID, OR, and WA. AZ and NM are slated to receive more wolf populations, courtesy of the feds, and CA, CO, UT, & TX are facing forcible injections of wolves. Very dangerous wolf-hybrids are being sighted from IL, MO, and the Dakotas into OH & PA!
A second example of federal takeover comes from a Tea Party bulletin received by CiR this week. The bulletin postulates that the US Dept. of Justice contacted the Volusia County Florida school district “over safety concerns due to parent protest and had the school board cancel the meeting!” Parents were planning to protest the school board’s adoption of a World History textbook that features over 30 pages of flattering Islamic history and religious ideals but includes next to nothing of like density for Christianity or other world religions. This World History text is part of the mandated Common Core standards developed and “sold” to unsuspecting local school authorities only too eager to take the federal dollars they now are learning have attached many long tentacles of federal control. The unsuspecting parents who found out what was going on, initially from one mother’s Facebook posting, rightfully are upset, yet now may not get their voices heard due to alleged pressure from the DoJ. You can go to http://myvolusiaschools.org or call them at 386-734-7190 to find out if the parents’ concerns will be heard by their elected officials. Remember, apathy is what got us to this point in American history.
Will anyone be around to speak out for you when they come to your schools, or your outdoors nature trails?

The New York Times and Los Angeles Times are reporting that there is a “surge” of enrollments in Obamacare. That this is a demonstrable lie, as usual, means nothing to the Left. But in their twisted little minds, nothing they say is ever a lie because they are such good people. And good people are – well, good people who only want to help us. They really believe this.
To these people, the “negativity” (generated by Republicans) surrounding Obamacare is the reason it is a train wreck. Realty is such a messy “conservative” thing to these people. Undeterred, they will keep on shoring up their master’s mess, even as the pain it brings us grows and gets worse. Not being able to do anything else, some Democrats who have seen their polling advantage evaporate in just six weeks have started to use the Debbie Wasserman Schultz approach; and they are bragging about Obamacare and counting on the dimwit vote to pull out their reelection next year.
When Obamacare shows no signs of life after today’s deadline, the media will insist it’s thriving anyway. For the Left, lies have always worked better than the truth anyway. They will use words like “may,” “likely,” and “should be able” to try to convince the greedy dopes that make up the liberal base that up is actually down, in is really out, and this month is actually June because the media says so.
Unfortunately for the media, Hans Christian Anderson’s fantasy about the king’s new suit of clothes was just that – a fantasy. In reality, polls that have always been friendly to the liberals are showing Obama melting like the Wicked Witch of the West. True Americans are repulsed by Obamcare. The media’s king is seeing his approval ratings fall below 35% in some states; and nationally, he is viewed as untrustworthy by 57%.
Stating the blindingly obvious, a representative of the Quinnipiac polling firm observed that, “Clearly much of the reason for the president’s decline in Ohio is ‘Obamacare. Ohio voters oppose the Affordable Care Act 59-35 percent. Perhaps more significantly, voters say 45-16 percent they expect their own healthcare to be worse rather than better a year from now.”
This sounds like the king really is naked, doesn’t it?
The Chinese Defense Ministry last week expanded its Air Defense Identification Zone in the East China Sea, unilaterally increasing its claim on the Japanese-administered Senkakus Islands. China is demanding that any aircraft in the Zone must identify themselves and obey air traffic control from Beijing. Any “threats” over the disputed area will be identified, monitored, or engaged according to Chinese policy. Past history has included verbal threats and close formation ramming by outdated fighters.
China and Japan both claim ownership of the islets known as the Senkakus, while China claims Diaoyu. Located in the middle of the East China Sea seabed, which is “potentially rich with oil, gas and other mineral deposits,” possession of the islands has been a matter of contention between the nations since they were purchased from a private owner last year by the government of Japan.
In a show of support for its Japanese ally, the Pentagon authorized the flight of Guam-based B-52s over the disputed Senkakus Islets. The Strategic bombers were sent to challenge China’s “claim of exclusive control of the airspace over the chain of land patches in the East China Sea.” China’s response was pure bluster, claiming “The Japanese and U.S. hysteria is unnecessary and potentially dangerous, because it is based on a serious misreading, if not intentional distortion, of Chinese strategic purposes.” America’s debt holder is insisting that Washington had no business challenging its sovereignty in a regional misunderstanding of the long-term designs of the People’s Republic.
China is the second largest importer of oil and natural gas and has become the world’s largest energy consumer. Their demand for hydrocarbon fuels is expected to increase rapidly in the near future. China’s encroachment on the Japanese-owned islands is not based on improving its defense posture. Rather, it involves the overt theft of underwater resources for the purpose of securing oil for its ambitions to become a sole world power. By expanding the Sea Air Defense Identification Zone, China is using its military to grab oil and gas fields in East and South China seas. As they are closer to home, China hopes to minimize the effects of a possible blockade or embargo by the world community should the Chinese government decide to invade, hypothetically, Taiwan.
Naturally, this will all be of little concern to America’s low information voters. They are just too busy loving their Chinese-assembled iPhones.

Despite a glee-filled report dated Oct 22nd from a stereotypical ABC News nerd – dark rimmed glasses, plaid shirt, orange tie, and hair combed like one of the gang at TMZ – insisting the Democrats’ government shutdown would hurt Republicans next year, no one really believes that. Americans didn’t believe the shamelessly left weighted polls last month; and they don’t believe them today, if they even remember them.
It’s a sure thing, however, that the Left wishes they could roll out some more fake polls to help Barack Obama out of his sink hole; but that’s not happening.
Because the Obama sandcastle is washing away so quickly, it is hard to say how far Obamacare has dragged him down. Is he at 42% approval as one of the “faker” polls had him earlier last week? Is he down to 38% approval? Or is that 37 or even 36%? The speed of his fall is dizzying.
A better way to gauge the destructive effect of Obama’s naked assault on America is examining the havoc it is bringing to his Party’s chances of regaining control of the House and holding the Senate next year.
A Morning Consult National Healthcare Tracking Poll gives us a peek at what the media would prefer we didn’t know about how Americans see the Obamacare disaster.
It says: Obamacare is at a net -12 approval and is upside down 28/63 with Independents, who trust Republicans to handle healthcare 58/42.
Sixty five percent believe Obama broke his promise (read: lied). While 29% (likely every one a Democrat) blames Republicans for the Obamacare mess (although not a single Republican voted for it), 40% blame the Democrats.
By 46/15, a recent Washington Post/ABC survey showed that Red State voters will be less likely to vote for a Senator who voted for Obamacare. The day of reckoning is coming for Democrats Mary Landrieu in Louisiana, Mark Begich in Alaska, Mark Pryor in Arkansas, and Kay Hagan in North Carolina – who has lost all of a once-daunting 17 point lead against any potential Republican opponent in just six weeks.
These are the surveys that are most telling.
History is almost always best understood in retrospect. Only on rare occasion are we able to see events and immediately identify them as historical milestones. Most of these are harbingers of trouble in the making.
On the night of November 9th and 10th, 1938, following orders from their Fuhrer Adolph Hitler, Germany’s Nazis (who had steadily moved in a heretofore deliberate but low-key manner against the Jews) removed their masks and took their attacks to the streets. Under what had become the “Law of the land,” they burned the Jews’ synagogues, shops, and homes. They rounded up 30,000 Jewish citizens and put them in “legally maintained” death camps. Germany’s Nazis brushed aside all pretense of being civilized people who could be dealt with rationally. This savage attack is called Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass.
After their Kristallnacht, the Nazis stepped up their attacks on Jews and anyone else they hated. No amount of “worldwide condemnation” swayed them in the slightest.
There was not a peep from Germany’s media, which by that time had either joined the Nazis, become frozen in fear, or had been murdered for opposing them.
The Nazi’s Kristallnacht led to the murder of those whose continued existence was deemed not cost-effective. Anyone with a physical or mental defect was sent to a camp by completely legal “Death Panels.” Although Hitler was given power by a bare plurality in 1933, after Kristallnacht, anyone who wasn’t with them was an enemy who had to be destroyed; no one but Nazis had any rights. Hitler ran the courts, had the guns, and did everything according to “the law of the land.” He was answerable to no one because all his moves were “legal.”
On November 19, 2013, Americans experienced our “Night of Broken Glass” when the Democrats in the Senate decided that laws and procedures in place for hundreds of years are not as important as fulfilling the wishes of their Fuhrer. Their changes to our Senate’s rules means the Democrats have committed America’s Kristallnacht. They have cleared the way to use “the law of the land” to destroy our Constitution, which is the only barrier between us and 1938 Germany.
To ensure the success of his eugenic, fake “healthcare” program, Barack Obama can now follow the “law of the land” and thin us out by cutting off life support for the weakest and most vulnerable among us. He can import millions of new Democrat voters to take the place of “legally” eliminated Americans. They will vote to ensure that their own parasitical presence in America becomes “the law of the land” forever. America’s Fuhrer can now use Hitler-like fiats to “LEGALLY” ascend to the position of dictator.
There are, of course, those who will laugh at this notion. But when you hear their cackling, ask them who has their allegiance– the Constitution or Barack Obama. The answer will speak volumes.

Hawaii is a place so completely run by Democrats that they can sometimes forget “the cameras are on.” Because death or actual incarnation are the only ways a Democrat in Hawaii can lose his/her seat, they can afford to be their true phony selves without fear of Election Day problems.
All their talk about protecting the weak and downtrodden in society – the kind only aimed at Republicans on the mainland – is dispensed with when they are truly alone as they are in the Aloha State. A recent report reminds us of this.
Secure in the electoral safety of living thousands of miles from America’s mainland, Democrat State Rep. Tom Brower, a homeless hating thug, has started his own campaign against homeless Hawaiians. He roams the streets of his district day and night with a sledgehammer; and upon spotting what he deems to be a “homeless” shopping cart (even if it contains someone’s personal possessions), he smashes it as a warning to homeless people to die or somehow disappear.
In a move reminiscent of the free Greyhound bus trips Old South Democrats offered to rid themselves of African Americans, he encourages his prey to take one of the free flights to the mainland the compassionate Democrats offer.
The proud Democrat had this to say about his crusade against defenseless homeless people:
“If I see shopping carts that I can’t identify, I will destroy them so they can’t be pushed on the streets. I want to do something practical that will really clean up the streets. If someone is sleeping at night on the bus stop, I don’t do anything, but if they are sleeping during the day, I’ll walk up and say, ‘Get your ass moving.”
By his own estimate, he has destroyed at least thirty carts in just the past two weeks.
Brower’s savagery begs these questions: Can you imagine what would be happening if he had an R after his name? Have you noticed that, as is always the case when a Democrat is in the White House, there are NO homeless people in Washington D.C.?

A magnificent Fall symbol of innocent childhood playtime became a scene of abject horror and death for little Anna Dieter-Eckerdt, 6, who died amidst the leaves of an Oregon autumn while her step-sister, Abigail Robinson, 11, died later in a Portland, Oregon hospital. Reading the news story in the Oregon press by reporter Emily E. Smith would make you want to cry for the “victim,” Dreamer Cynthia Garcia-Cisneros who just happened to mow down two helpless little girls playing in a pile of leaves.
Now this insensitive, obviously very left leaning reporter, chose to ignore the true victims of what happened, giving only one sentence, her lead, plus one small phrase to the dead children. But Smith goes on and on about now the life of 18 year old Garcia-Cisneros is changed forever, because, somehow, this teen illegal, now “legal” immigrant drove her boyfriend’s mother’s car into the Autumn leaves, leaving death in her wake. Reporter Smith commiserates for the “undocumented immigrant” by stating: “She cooked for them – her brother and father – and often took care of her 10-year-old nephew, who is disabled.” Pointing out that the accused now faces two felony hit and run charges does not appear until paragraph five in the Smith piece. Her passenger, Mario Echeverria, her love interest, faces one count of hindering prosecution because allegedly he took the family SUV to a car wash. Perhaps the bump the Hispanics heard prompted them to take a second look after allegedly leaving the scene of the Autumn leaves.
Just consider how reporter Smith drills in on how this Hispanic driver now will be impacted: “(She) was born in Mexico, has lived nearly all of her life in the U.S… has a driver’s license, a valid Social Security number…a temporary renewable work permit under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. . .” Because, perhaps, of the largesse of President Barack Obama who ordered this young Hispanic woman and many of her fellow Dreamers into semi-legal status by means of executive fiat, these two ignored young girls are dead. Coincidence, unintended consequences, or what? The insensitive, politically correct reporter goes on to bemoan how the accused wants her own family, her own children, wanted to go into beauty school. Hello, Reporter Smith. Why not provide readers with a eulogy for the little girls who never will have their own lives, or their own children, or who never will get to look beautiful? Listen to this Smith gem: “She (the driver) can’t believe what’s going on, why it happened. . .She cries a lot.” Not one word from Reporter Smith about tears shed by the families of the dead little girls, the real victims of this F grade news story. A cub reporter in a 50′s journalism class would not have made it to Reporting 102 with coverage like this. We had to delineate priorities of facts before we could put anything out there for print consumption! Over and over our professors told us to lead with loss of life FIRST. But then, our pitiful press has completely flipped what is and is not priority here in America.
This terrible October news story prompted a CiR commentator to respond: “There were two kids killed. How were they not seen by the driver. . .the writer of this article fails to show any remorse for the kids killed, but focuses on the poor illegal alien!” The New York state resident is appalled by how illegals tear through her rural community, often sporting Illinois license plates, which, in turn, can be used to buy legal tags from New York. “There are so many new arrivals, the traffic has increased by at least a third,” she says. So from coast to coast, shining sea to shining sea, our executive in the Oval office sees fit to let illegals Dream their way onto our streets, our Autumn leaves, our lives, yet evidently feels no compunction for legal U.S. citizens. But, perhaps, the politically correct Oregonian press story is simply doing what it does best, seeing the misery of anyone or anything but what is America, our America now in the Autumn of its years.
