With CNN and other Jurassic media outlets, touting great victories for so-called “gay rights,” which is actually just more lawlessness from the Obama regime, trampling on the federalism that the Founders so wisely created in our precious Constitution, it’s worth revisiting how we got here. Contrary to what we hear from cheerleaders from this social pathology, it is NOT the culmination of some grand ascent to the summit of human rights. Rather, it is the culmination of a decades long descent into the gutter.

As most readers of this site, and listeners to The Teri O’Brien Show  well know, the popular culture has been one of the most effective tools in the Left’s arsenal. They have used it very skillfully to attack traditional society in general and traditional marriage in particular, especially over the last twenty-five years. You may not know, though, that this strategy is not a happy accident for our left-wing friends. It is a deliberate calculated strategy, one laid out in the book 1990, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90′s. It written by psychologist Marshall Kirk and Madison Avenue ad man Hunter Madsen, both Harvard grads, which is shocking, I know. The book was based on a 1987 article by these two schemers, published in the homosexual magazine, Guide. Think of it as Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals for the militant homosexual movement. They advise that homosexuals take six steps (you can read all six here), including desensitizing the public and portraying homosexuals as victims by using television and movies. Noting that Americans at that time spent on average 7 hours a day in front of the idiot box, they write about infecting our society with a casual attitude toward homosexuality without our even realizing that it’s happening. “Those hours open a gateway into the private world of straights, through which a Trojan horse might be passed.” Can you say “Will and Grace?” Even Joe Biden understands how effective that strategy has been. Being that he’s Joe “Three Letter Word JOBS” Biden, it was easy to pretend that he put his foot in his mouth again while saying so, when in reality he was just paving the way for Barack Obama, who only a couple of years ago was a homophobic hater who believed that marriage was an institution between one man and one woman, to announce that he had “evolved” in time for the November 2012 election.

Like the snakes in the grass they were, Kirk and Madsen note that the beginning of the plan, it must not be too scary, lest their plot be exposed.

“At least in the beginning”, they write, “we are seeking public desensitization and nothing more. We do not need and cannot expect full ‘appreciation’ or ‘understanding’ of homosexuality from the average America. You can forget about trying to persuade the masses that homosexuality is a good thing. But if you can only get them
to think that is just another thing, with a shrug of the shoulders, then your battle for legal and social rights is virtually won (emphasis mine)
. And to get to shoulder-shrug state, gays as a class must cease to appear mysterious, alien and contrary.”

Eventually “….by conversion [toward public acceptance of homosexuality] we mean something far more profoundly threatening to the American Way of Life, without which no truly  sweeping social change can occur. We mean conversion of the average American’s emotions, mind, and will, through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media.” (emphasis mine)

And did they ever succeed! So much so that we find ourselves living in a time when the sovereign state of Arizona tries to expand protection for religious liberty and ends up on the receiving end of a bullying and intimidation campaign that would make Tony Soprano proud. Who can blame Gov. Brewer for vetoing the religious freedom bill, in the face of the threats from corporate America, and even the NFL? She saw how the propagandists in the media distorted the truth about the bill, and she knows how it has played with low-information voters. Bumper Sticker - Ithaca - Coexist Can we really expect the sort of well-intentioned, but clearly addled, people who voluntarily affix “Mean People Suck,” and “Co-Exist” bumper stickers to their vehicles, people who have been conditioned for decades not to be “haters” to understand why so-called “marriage equality” is a bad idea? Do we expect them to appreciate how we got to the place where it could even be considered? They don’t realize that back in the late 60′s and early 70′s when people decided to shack up because they didn’t need “a piece of paper,” pretty soon that “piece of paper” would be as meaningless as they said it was. After “marriage” was destroyed, of course, it could mean whatever anybody wanted. They also don’t know that this derogation of the institution of marriage was taking place at the same time as this underhanded conspiracy to normalize homosexuality. The result? “I now pronounce you husband and husband.”

Unfortunately, it’s not just fluffy sitcoms where these devoted apparatchiks worked their black arts. In Part II, we’ll unpack notable examples of stunning fraud that the militant homosexual movement has perpetrated on not only the public, but even the U.S. Supreme Court.

Fanning the Flames of Malignant Racism: Obama’s America


In the wake of last Saturday’s verdict in the Michael Dunn “loud music” trial, which we discussed extensively on last week’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show with our guest Andrew Branca of, liberal media morons took the opportunity to recite their predictable, threadbare clichès about our need to have “a serious conversation about race” in this country. As I said on the show, it seems to me that we talk about little else, especially since the election of our first affirmative-action president, Barack Hussein Obama, a man who surfed into the U.S. Senate, and then the White House, on the mother of all waves of white guilt.

In the American Spectator, Ross Kaminsky describes that extremely destructive foolishness being spewed by frequently featured MS-NBC race-baiter, “African studies” (seriously) professor Marc Lemont Hill, CNN’s Don Lemon, and some guy in the Atlantic Monthly:

The effect and intent of the words of Lemon and Hill and Coates are to divide Americans along racial lines, to instill anger and mistrust and jealousy and bitterness. It helps their ratings; it helps them sell magazines; it helps them line up more speaking engagements. It makes them feel good about themselves — by making one part of society hate another part.

But their views are a national cancer which, perhaps surprisingly to some, is metastasizing more rapidly under our first black president than at any time in the nearly five decades I have been alive.

In fact, it should surprise no one. Barack Obama is not foremost a black president; he is a Progressive Alinskyite president who happens to be black, a follower of a man who preached division as a political tactic, and the employer of a man, Attorney General Eric Holder, who said (while in his previous job), “I am the black United States attorney…[T]here’s a common cause that bonds the black United States attorney with the black criminal….” As former DoJ attorney Christian Adams put it, that’s the real race card.

It is not surprising that President Obama inflamed the nation surrounding the Zimmerman case; indeed it is possible charges might never have been brought had he not said “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Somehow he didn’t say the same about Jordan Davis. Could it be because his insincerity would be obvious?

Or is it something else: that Obama isn’t running for re-election? Even George Zimmerman, a self-described former “huge supporter of President Obama,” in an interview with Univision on Sunday, said that Obama’s interference in his case was an “opportunity” to win more votes. (If you want to see a truly egregious example of media misconduct, watch Chris Cuomo’s interview of George Zimmerman which aired on CNN on Monday in which Cuomo asked Zimmerman how he felt about people who “liked that a young black had been killed.”)

But the politics of division remain this president’s first choice of political weapon. It is why when presented with a spreading national cancer of anti-white racism among leading blacks in the media (and some of their strangely-guilt-ridden white colleagues), Obama’s actions aim to speed and broaden the disease rather than to treat it.

Of course he’s trying to spread this evil racism. It’s the secret to his success. Expecting him to disavow racism and the myth of perpetual black victimhood would be like expecting Netflix to stop producing “House of Cards.” Playing the race card has worked out very well for him, Eric Holder, Moochelle and the whole lot.

It’s pathetic and disgusting, and not going to end any time soon.

Obamacare 2.0: More Brass Knuckle Lawlessness and Stunning Hypocrisy from Democrats

In April 2005, Sen. Barack Obama rose to oppose any change in Senate filibuster rules.

Republicans propose this rule “because they can get away with it not because they know it’s good for our democracy.” Ironic much? If there were ever a phrase that describes virtually every lawless action of the Obama administration that’s it.

Watch as other democrats in 2005 also lament “vaporizing” the “checks and balances” contained in the filibuster “changing the rules in the middle of the game,” “putting an end to democratic debate,” becoming a “rubber stamp” for the President, a “stunning moment,” a “fundamental power grab” that our Founders warned us against.

Yesterday, the democrats did the very thing that they so strongly opposed only 8 years ago, and blew up the filibuster. Of course, the hypocrisy is stunning. It’s important to understand what happened yesterday, and why.

First, the tremendous irony is that it is the democrats during George W. Bush’s presidency who came up with the idea of filibustering a president’s nominees. It has become a hackneyed liberal talking point, always accompanied with the predictable faux disgust and outrage, that Sen. Mitch McConnell actually said that he wanted Barack Obama to be a one-term president! What an outrageous, shocking statement especially since every democrat obviously wanted to repeal the XXII Amendment so that George W. Bush could serve at least three terms. What is in fact stunning and unprecedented is the pow wow that several liberal activists had right after Pres. Bush was sworn in. That’s where they cooked up the idea of filibustering judicial nominees. I wrote about it here. 

Second, there is a reason that the democrats were desperate to pack the D.C. Circuit. That’s where challenges to regulations, and to Obamacare, will be heard. Knowing that fact, the democrats pushed the panic button.

Third, as noted in a very cogent way, by the Wall Street Journal in their piece, Senate Rules for Radicals:

The move shows how foolish Republicans like John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Orrin Hatch were to worry that if they broke the filibuster, Democrats would then do it too. Democrats did it anyway. The only way to deter bloody-minded Democratic behavior is to treat Democrats as they treat Republicans. (emphasis mine) Democrats sicced special prosecutors on GOP Presidents for years, but they gave up the independent-counsel statute only after Ken Starr investigated Bill Clinton.

Absolutely. I know that they suffer from East Coast Brain Rot, but let’s hope that finally the GOP has learned its lesson. As I reminded them here, there was a reason that Ronald Reagan was so successful fighting the Left. He understood what he was up against.

So this disgraceful event is just the latest episode in the on-going drama that we find ourselves forced to live in, in which a radical leftist and his minions lawlessly “transform” our country.

One silver lining, noted in that WSJ piece: now we need only 51 votes to repeal Obamacare.

The Reason Ronald Reagan Was Victorious Over the Left

Radical leftists are even worse than sleazy lawyers, believe it or not

I heard Rush Limbaugh talking today about something that we’ve discussed here, and on The Teri O’Brien Show; specifically, that East Coast Brain Rot-afflicted establishment Republicans don’t get it. They don’t understand that we are in an existential battle for the soul of this country, which is why instead of standing with guys like Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee, who do appreciate what we’re up against, they fight them instead of Barack Obama.

People sometimes say “why can’t Republican leaders today be like Ronald Reagan?” When it comes to waging war against the Left, Sen. Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House John Boehner are at a distinct disadvantage compared to President Reagan. Ronald Reagan had the experience of fighting communists when he was head of the Screen Actors Guild in the 1940′s. He knew how vicious and deceitful they are, and how there is nothing they won’t do to further their utopian vision. Guys like McConnell don’t have a clue. They think Barack Obama is like Hubert Humphrey, or some other traditional democrat, who, while a member of the opposing party, agrees on the rules of the game. For the radical Left, there are no rules other than “we can’t wait” and “whatever it takes.” We have seen this attitude on prominent display during the lawless tenure of the Obama administration. Whether it’s deciding which laws to ignore or enforce, using various schemes to do end runs around Congress, or otherwise doing whatever they want, the Constitution and the law be damned.

To understand the radical Left, recall what happened in the 1972 Olympic Men’s Basketball final, resetting the clock until the Soviet Union scored so that they could be awarded the Gold medal. The ends justify the means.

Ronald Reagan understood the Left. They fight dirty. They lie. They cheat. Their whole philosophy is an immoral fabrication, based on envy, promoting theft and requiring brutal coercion to enforce. There’s a reason that communists have killed over 100 million people in the last century. You aren’t going to beat them by pretending you’re dealing with the Girl Scouts.

Barack Obama is now, and has been for his entire adult life, a radical Leftist. That fact was obvious even before he was elected to the Illinois State Senate. It has been very frustrating to many of us that what was so glaring and obvious about this man wasn’t clear to a lot of our fellow citizens. The very fact that he was a “community organizer” should have been sufficient to disqualify him from consideration for the office of President. “Community organizers” don’t accept the underpinnings of our Constitution, private property and the rule of law. They don’t accept the rules of the game, the Constitution.

Blue Meth Democrats: The Teri O’Brien Show 9-29-13


As he allows himself to be duped by an Iranian charm offensive designed to reduce the pain of economic sanctions and buy time to finish up that nuclear weapon they’ve been working on, and toting his TelePrompTer to another college campaign speech, King Barack has declared that he will not even talk to the Republicans in the House of Representatives. In fact, as he cozies up to one of the world’s number one sponsors of terrorism, Iran, a country which has suffered very few consequences for many of its murderous acts, including its involvement in 1998 Embassy bombings, his dimwitted mouthpieces refer to Republicans as “terrorists,” “anarchists,” and “suicide bombers.” Yet, which party is the one that refuses to compromise? Which is the one that demands “purity,” on a par with Breaking Bad’s Walter White’s crystal blue meth?

Screen Shot 2013-09-29 at 10.38.58 AM

The clueless “experts” in the Lame Stream Media and elites in both parties, not only the democrats, but his fellow Republicans remain disgusted by “radical” Texas senator Ted Cruz, who has blatantly committed the ultimate crime for a member of the GOP, violating the sacred code of “civility” that has enabled the Left’s incremental destruction of the country envisioned by the Founders. How dare this guy run around telling the truth and showing leadership? How dare he suggest that Washington should listen to the screams of pain from the American people, suffering under a law enacted through back room deals, bribes, lies and any other sort of skullduggery straight out of the Cook County playbook? This very law, by the way, is so heinous that its own proponents have exempted themselves and their friends from it, another favorite Chicago tactic. These issues have come a head as we are 48-hours from a “government shutdown.” Oh no! How we will survive the furlough of a few fat, dumb and happy bureaucrats for a few days?

One bright side to this conflict, in addition to that afore-mentioned furlough, as Chris Matthews pointed out: we have finally found one baby that Barack Obama wants to make sure isn’t killed.

Be ahead of the curve. Tune in today 4-6 pm Central, for the rest of the story.

Community Organizer in Chief in Full Alinsky Mode Disgraces His Office Again

The organizer dedicated to changing the life of a particular community must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. The use of the adjective “controversial” to qualify the word “issue” is a meaningless redundancy. There can be no such thing as a “non-controversial” issue. When there is agreement there is no issue; issues only arise when there is disagreement or controversy. An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent; provide a channel into which the people can angrily pour their frustrations.

-Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals

As we discussed on yesterday’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, Barack Obama’s “surprise” visit to the White House press room last Friday was a disgusting politically-motivated stunt designed to manipulate one of his most important mascot groups, blacks, who are demanding additional persecution of an innocent man, George Zimmerman, even though everyone involved in the case, including the prosecutors, declared that the case had nothing to do with race, and even though Barack Obama himself said that the trial was conducted fairly. It is nauseating to watch this pathetic, narcissistic empty suit, who has had everything handed to him his entire life because of his black skin privilege, and who has done almost nothing to try to solve the problems in the black community, pander to worst impulses in human nature; specifically, envy, resentment and racism.

Thinking that Barack Obama and Eric Holder, and their ideological dopplegangers, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, want racism to end is like thinking that the R. Randall Rollins, chairman of Rollins, Inc., the parent company of Orkin, wants insect infestations to magically disappear. That would be very bad for business, and the end of racism, or even a diminution in the endless conversation about racial discrimination would be very bad for Barack Obama, whose family business is race baiting. He surfed into the U.S. Senate on a wave of white guilt, then rode a tsunami of that same white guilt into the Oval Office. That’s why he wants to talk about little else. Certainly not the levels of unemployment in his stagnant economy, especially not in the African-American community.

Careful observers watching last Friday’s bizarre spectacle would be reasonable to ask what Barack Obama being followed in a department store or Eric Holder being stopped trying to catch a movie has to do with a criminal case in which one guy was using “ground and pound” MMA tactics to beat the crap out of another guy. Nothing, other than trying to connect this criminal case with the victimhood of blacks in racist Amerika, to “rub raw the resentments of the people of the community.”

How much better it would have been last Friday if Barack Obama had addressed the real problems in the black community, the illegitimacy rate, the school drop out rate, and the resulting disproportionate number of crimes committed by young black men. Instead, he said that they are “disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system.” Then, right after saying “It’s not to make excuses for that fact,” he proceeded to excuse it, as being part of “a historical context. We understand that some of the violence that takes place in poor black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country, and that the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history.”  Wrong. It can be traced to the factors I mentioned above; specifically, the destruction of the black family, featuring out-of-wedlock births, the federal government in the role of provider for the family, adolescent males growing up without the example and the guidance of a father in the home, poor performance in school, often resulting in semi-literacy and the inability to be a contributing member of society.

If Barack Obama wants to talk about “historical context” for the problems in the black community, he might want to start with (so-called) “Great Society” programs of the 1960′s. We have thrown trillions down this social welfare rathole, and the worst part isn’t all the money that we’ve wasted. It’s that we spent all that treasure to raze the black family, along with the potential of millions of human beings.

Obama Goes Full Alinsky To Hide His Many Failures, and Men on Strike: The Teri O’Brien Show, 7-21-13

At this point, is there a dime’s worth of difference between Barack Obama and Eric Holder on the one hand, and Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson on the other? If you have any doubt about that, and about why Barack Obama appeared to do more race hustling in the White House briefing room, perhaps the following will clear things up. From the Washington Post:

On Thursday, Obama informed his senior staff that he wanted to share his thoughts, leading to his appearance at the podium Friday during Carney’s scheduled daily briefing.

Civil rights leaders have been communicating with White House officials about the Zimmerman case, including a conference call Tuesday with senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. But officials said they did not press Obama to speak publicly about the case.

Sharpton said he discussed the issue with Jarrett over breakfast Friday.

Wait–Al Sharpton, Race Hustler Extraordinaire, he of Tawana Brawley and Freddy’s Fashion Mart Fame, was having breakfast with the One’s closest adviser last Friday. This after Sharpton had been agitating for months to intimidate Florida officials into prosecuting (persecuting) a man who exercised his right of self-defense. No one should be surprised that gutless weasel politicians were all too eager to comply.


The Saul Alinsky playbook is all about divide and conquer, “rub raw the sores of discontent,” and never let a crisis go to waste. It’s a long way from “hope and change,” which most of you knew was a steaming load of crap from the jump. Sadly, the clueless wet-behind-the-ears, the low information and the well-intentioned, but emotionally-driven, weren’t able to see through the beautiful B.S. in the 2008 and 2012 elections. Now Obama has returned to the well one more time to try to accomplish two objectives; specifically, (1) to distract the public, with the enabling legacy media, from the still stagnant economy, with its high unemployment and under-employment, the remaining questions about the murder of 4 Americans in Benghazi on 9/11/12, Eric Holder’s stonewalling about the bloody Fast and Furious operation, and the IRS targeting of Barack Obama’s political opponents with a goal to suppress votes in 2012, and (2) to stoke the fires of racial division to energize voters for 2014. We’ll deconstruct his repellent, race baiting speech from Friday.

Despite the unwillingness of all the “learned” commentators to mention it, one aspect of the tragic story of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman is the fact that Trayvon came from a broken home. To what extent can we hold the liberal social policies that have destroyed the black family complicit in the death of Trayvon Martin? And, sadly, it seems that many men are checking out when it comes to marriage. Why has Ward Cleaver turned into Homer Simpson, or as Dr. Helen Smith, author of Men on Strike: Why Men are Boycotting Marriage Fatherhood and the American Dream and Why it Matters, some schlub with a flowered diaper bag? Is the legal system turned completely and unfairly against men? We’ll ask Dr. Smith.

In another stunning development, as of last Thursday’s hearing in Rep. Darryl Issa’s House Oversight Committee,  the IRS scandal involving targeting of Tea Party groups has been laid at the door of the White House. The reaction from the Jurassic Media? More stories about cute animals, weather, and Rolling Stone

Tune in tomorrow for the rest of the story.
