Afterburner with Bill Whittle: Cannibals

Bill Whittle is back and he’s obviously not very happy since the election. But he’s channeling it all into fighting to save this country:

Now that Barack Obama has been reelected president, ObamaCare is certain to remain unchanged. Bill thinks this is the first step towards massive tax increases, socialized health care, and a citizenry more dependent on the federal government than ever. So although the foreseeable future of our great country may seem grim, hear why Bill thinks patriots must continue to fight the good fight for the duration.

  • I saw this on PJ Media and thought it was great, and very, very, sad too. Well, remember one simple thing. After the Democrats lost in 2004 to George W. Bush, did they moderate their positions and become more conservative? Did they roll over and die and think about ways to “reach out” to conservatives to bring them into their “big tent?” Did people like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid think that the way to win was to be more “middle of the road” and more “moderate?”

    Not on your life. They double-downed on liberalism and came up with Obama in 2008. And guess what? With the support of the mainstream and cultural media, the Democrats went even further left and promised people a socialist utopia. And it worked.

    We have our work cut out for us, my friends. Times are hard. I know that. But the way to success is NOT by giving up and just going with the flow. Nothing worth achieving has been achieved through laziness and cowardice. Now is the time for us to stand tall, shake the dust off of us, and find the best and most charismatic CONSERVATIVE leader we can find to start beating the Democrats in 2014. Are we in for some hard times? You bet we are. But the Founding Fathers and the other men and women who built this nation faced much longer odds than we do, and they did not give up nor shall we. Take it like an adult, people, and dish it out as good as good as the liberals do. The time to stand tall is right now, more than ever. And we will win in the end because we have the founding principles on our side. As Paul Ryan said during the campaign, “We can do this.” Now lets get out there and prove that we can.

    • Watchman74

      If anything we can learn from the progressive movement is they are persistent. The odds were always stacked against them but they didn’t quit. If they couldn’t go through the front doors they went through the back. If the couldn’t go through the back doors they went though the sides. It’s taken them nearly 100 years but they did it. We must be just as determined as they are, if not more so, to beat them at there own game. It may take just as long for us to turn the country back around, but if they can do it so can we.

      • And if all else fails…CHEAT.

        • Watchman74

          And then there’s that. True they are willing to use any dirty trick to get them ahead.

    • DavidRobertson

      1000% agree!
      But we are a people without a party. These past two weeks of hand-wringing and second guessing of the very principles of conservatism by leaders and pundits from Boehner to even Jindal or Paul have been most disappointing and further confirmation that the party is split and wayward.
      We stand on conservative principle. If our principles are correct, they are more valuable than a trading chip for future election wins. However, if you listen to the supposed leaders of the party today, you would think that the principles are fair trade for niche demographic votes.

  • sDee

    The Republican Party is not in this fight.

    • Sober_Thinking

      They never were. 🙁

  • PhillyCon

    I had no clue about the jury duty thing. Geez. I’m speechless.

  • Rshill7

    I have a bit of hope that Obama could be removed from office due to some scandal or other. He should be charged with treason for a few things. For being elected by fraudulent means, for Benghazi, Fast and Furious and the like. Perhaps a sudden disease could seize him or something. Who knows. Isn’t it horrible that I would say that? It doesn’t feel right. Many, many things don’t feel right these days.

    I want my country back. This hurts, something fierce. It really does. That so many actually voted for this guy (those that did so legitimately at least) is just flabbergasting to say the very least. I hate what has been done to us, and what is yet to come. It’s like a bad dream I can’t awaken from. The future seems a dark place.

    We’ve indeed been cannibalized from stem to stern. A few generations of kids have been educationally neglected. They have diplomas that don’t rise to the level of the fourth grade in the not too distant past. They have doctorates in ignorance though, with no accompanying wisdom.

    We need a miracle of Divine intervention. Nothing else will suffice. We’ve faced all sorts of enemies as a nation, but this business where our worst enemy is us, is just too tough to take. It’s a feeling of helplessness. We need to besiege the throne of Grace. What else can we do?

    We also need for those in leadership positions on our side to recognize what’s happening, take it seriously, and take a firm stand. Would that God would grant them that strength. Right now, I don’t see it, don’t hear it, and certainly don’t feel it. All I can do is look up and say please. I’ve come to the end of me, and so many more have come to the end of us. We need you.

    • Sandra123456

      Amen. So many things in this country just don’t feel right.

      I hope at some point Bill Whittle and his friends will get some national exposure somewhere instead of just being seen by those who already think like he does.

      Maybe we need a miracle.

      • Rshill7

        There are now 48 states whose people want to secede.

        • I’m crazy, but secession looks pretty darn attractive to me. I guess I don’t remember the downside with secession. Can somebody remind me?

          • warpmine

            Servitude to the Federal Govt. Isn’t that worth staying?

          • Rshill7

            Some of the former Eastern Block countries that left the Soviet Union are doing quite well. The Fed here is a monster with tentacles in everything. It needs to be drawn and quartered and stuffed back into it’s Constitutional box.

            If that can’t happen, states should send it a Dear John letter, and tell it to take a hike. To me it’s like throwing good money after bad you know? Kind of like a car you don’t want to attempt to fix any more cuz it’s too far gone. You park it at the junkyard and get another one.

            Were World History personified, it’d be shaking it’s head in disgust and saying something like, “wow, they never learn”.

            • colliemum

              Rudyard Kipling in 1919 describes it thus:

              The Gods of the Copybook Headings

              As I pass through my incarnations in every age and race,
              I Make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market-Place.
              Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
              And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

              We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
              That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
              But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
              So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

              We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
              Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market-Place.
              But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
              That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

              With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch
              They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch
              They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings.
              So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

              When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
              They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
              But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
              And the Gods of the Copybook Heading said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”

              On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
              (Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
              Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
              And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”

              In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
              By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
              But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
              And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”

              Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew,
              And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
              That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four —
              And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

              * * * * *

              As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man —
              There are only four things certain since Social Progress began —
              That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
              And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire —
              And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
              When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins
              As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn
              The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!”

          • Sober_Thinking

            United we stand… divided we fall. But in this case, the opposite may be true.

            And when in our history has this ever happened before – on this level? What a dark period in America’s history.

          What do you think would happen if millions marched in Washington calling for Obama’s impeachment? Would there be any outcome to that?

          • BikerHoop

            Personally, I think that’s exactly what needs to happen. Sure, they’ll call out the National Guard and all that, but if there were several million marchers, what are they gonna do? All the streets would be blocked. Just tell me when. I’ll save my vacation time.

  • Take the senate in 2014 and impeach Obozo

  • mediaaccess1

    I was wondering what happened to this guy. I wish he and I could cry on each other’s shoulders. Nothing he is saying is wrong.

  • cabensg

    Whittle certainly voiced the frustration and anger we all feel and of course in the most articulate way possible.

    Here’s the analysis of what happened without rancor for what might have been but a forward view of what must be done and no it’s not some Politico operative, it’s Newt.

    • warpmine

      Someone should point out to Newt that voter turn out per precinct cannot be above 100% and be legit.

      • BikerHoop

        Yeah, and one candidate getting 100% of the vote from 59 precincts isn’t quite legit, either.

  • Bill is spot on in describing the difficulty of the challenges that face us. We are doing battle with progressives that now make the rules, and selectively enforce them. They openly cheat the system (eg. voter fraud) and when caught in shady if not criminal behavior simply twist, spin, and ignore the laws of our country.

    We are trapped in a western movie directed by Michael Moore.

    Act one. The Obama cabal rode into town with the promise of hope and free phones, and the people cheered. He got his man Holder elected sheriff and started to take over, the town council (congress) sat on their buts and let him. A few of the town folk (tea party) made noise and were silenced by an election. End of act one.

    Act two. The hardware store, saloon, blacksmith, and mine owners are rounded up and persecuted for making money and not sharing it equally with the town drunks, it is made clear to the people occupying the streets that all their woes are caused by these evil business owners. The rules of commerce are changed, now all income goes to the rulers who then decide how much each person gets. End act two.

    Act three. The town is divided into two groups, the ruling 10% (let’s call them the haves), and the ruled 90% (let’s call them the have not). The 90 percent group looks to the horizon for a man on a white horse riding into town to save them from what they have allowed to be done to them, but alas, Clint is sitting in California with his head down repeating “I told you so”.

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    He sounds sad and angry, just like me.

  • Bill Whittle needs to expend his auditory to the mass.I share the same thoughts as him,we loss the battle to the parasites

    • Mtncougar

      Keep watching the voter fraud statistics. I don’t know which is worse … losing the election to the parasites or losing the election due to voter fraud. I do react differently, however, to each.

      “If it looks impossible, then it probably is.”

      Pre-election, Dan Rather called it for Romney. The Huffington Post called it for Romney. 18 major newspapers flipped from Obama to Romney. Romney rallies drew 30,000 while Obama drew maybe 10,000. The Democrats began a pre-election early meme of “voter suppression.” They knew they were going to lose. The polls showed it by calculating/anticipating a higher Democrat turnout than in 2008. One liberal pundit in order to salvage credibility finally wrote a clear article about this, the day before election. And he called it for Romney.

      We won.

      They beat us on swing-state voter fraud.

      Which is worse?

  • This clip needs to be sticky-ed to the home page indefinitely.

  • Sober_Thinking

    From the movie Finding Nemo, Dory: “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming swimming swimming…”

    Any conservative who didn’t vote bares shame. It sucked voting for Romney… it really did. But it had to be done. But evil ruled the day and Obama now has 4 more to finish his rotten work. We have to keep fighting, even though it seems hopeless now. I’d rather go down swinging. God is firmly in control – as He always has been. But America is slipping away from God… so here we are.

    I agree with Bill… my jaw is still torqued over what happened a week ago… it’s going to take a while for God to heal my heart and mind over this tragedy. But I will not lay down my sword and shield. Keep fighting the good fight… even though the horizon is dark up ahead. Jesus has already secured the victory… we must tarry here a little longer until His return. Hopefully we can save a few more from the fire before we go.

    Great ending, great call-out, to work ‘for the duration’.

    Great rant all the way through, with palpable anger.
    What I still do not understand is that he, and his friends in the New Media, are not even asking questions about the possibility of voter fraud.
    Why is that?
    I keep asking this everywhere, and not getting an answer: what are they afraid of?

    • Re: voter fraud

      I share your frustration and concern. Something about this election still just seems wrong, aside from the horrible outcome. Not sure what it is, but perhaps it was stolen.
      I don’t think anyone knows what to do here. We need evidence of massive fraud. Otherwise, it’s close to conspiracy theory stuff for it to have occurred in so many states and districts—so it’s a non-starter unless something systematic is discovered because it’s another topic of ridicule for GOP without sufficient evidence. So, people are trying not to hang hopes on finding anything there and instead trying to deal with the alternative that the vote was valid. But, I still feel something is odd about it all. Can’t put my finger on it.

      • colliemum

        It should be obvious to these pretty intelligent conservatives in the New Media that inquiring about voter fraud, given the very strange results in some divisions in Ohio and Philadelphia, with zero votes for Romney is not like birtherism.
        It is about finding out if the political process, the principle on which the Republic is governed, has been manipulated or even perverted.
        It isn’t about ‘winning’, it is about the people of this country.
        As Allen West said – they deserve to know that everything was above board, that their votes counted and were counted properly.

        It is no good to shy from this because the corrupt MSM might laugh.
        It is even worse to disregard the possibility of voter fraud while blaming Republican, conservative voters for not having done their duty!

        • Orangeone

          Even less GOP will turn out in 2014, less campaign contributions will be made. We know our votes do not count so why bother.

          • RosiesSeeingRed

            That’s what I’m afraid of as well.

          • colliemum

            Here’s a different scenario: the TEA party runs their candidates, all on local issues, all with a budget just sufficient for the state – no huge donations, ahem, bribes, needed from the GOP.
            Grassroots work, and while some old-fashioned elbow grease and shoe leather will be needed, they can show the GOP the door.
            It’s about the people, not the GOP and the Roves and Bushes.

            • Orangeone

              Well newly elected Tea Party Ted Cruz just publicly stated he will compromise with Barky Boy.  Tea Party mislead Americans into supporting them.

              • colliemum

                Oh gah!!!

                Mind – it looks as if Ted Cruz misled his voters and the TEA Party, in order to get his trotters into the trough that is the Senate.

      • Orangeone

        We do know what to do about the voter fraud, but Romney tossed the flag and he and Paul Ryan gave up.

        • deeme

          I’ve read some of your ideas on making the vote fair..I wish we could make you in charge I know you could do it…

            • deeme

              Part of me prayed that Romney would contest the vote and demand a recount , in light of Philly and Cleveland and many other counties I wish it would of happened..Instead we act like oh well that’s the way the cookie crumbles…Many of the signers of the Constitution said when people in power were corrupt or buying votes it would be the end of the Republic and The Constitution wouldn’t work..It was written for a moral people and I think many of them have passed and the rest of U.S. are in deep doo doo..

    • DebbyX

      I believe Bill had said immediately following the election, that we can all get angry and stomp our feet, looking back on everything that went wrong, ie: fraud, voter ignorance, etc… Or, we can fight on, looking ahead to better days.

      Or something like that.

      • colliemum

        Without a thorough and above all precise analysis of what went wrong in the first place, any ‘fight on’ is futile.
        One cannot have a precise analysis when some areas are excluded (‘voter fraud’ oh nooo – birthers!), and others are taken as gospel because the corrupt MSM say so.

        Haven’t we learned enough from the ‘mystery’ surrounding Obama, which is still not being investigated by the corrupt MSM? Isn’t it obvious that we ordinary people, we grassroots, have a better understanding of what is wrong than all the talking heads? So why should we do what they tell us: meekly crawl back home, not asking any ‘stupid’ questions?

        • DebbyX

          Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still be asking the ‘stupid’ questions. But for the sake of my own sanity, I cannot let it consume me. The obvious questions will not go away, they’ll now be mixed with the question, ‘what the heck do we do now?’

          • colliemum

            I do get you, DebbyX, I do!

            But hey – we’re women, right? So we can multi-task, can’t we!
            It’s only a week since that night, so questions- they are never stupid! – must be asked, both about what went wrong and where to go from here.

  • deeme

    I laugh and cry heartily , when people say maybe he will want to be remembered as a good leader who moderates his positions..This is what they waited for all their life..and all the people who voted for him and came here to escape what they had, will soon see that there is nowhere to run to now..If one more person tells me Hispanics are Conservatives by nature, I will throw up, because they didn’t think this one through..

  • jrt1031

    the only thing i disagree with in his rant is that the conservatives didnt turn out. I disagree. i think the o machine had in place a voter fraud that was set in place before any of us went to the polls. how else would o have been so confident when telling Russia leader that he will have more flexibility after the formality of an election. No votes were counted. the numbers were established well before election day. We all just turn on the tv and our pcs and believed what we saw.

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    We have 30 states with republican governors. You would think they would know that the proportional electoral college (like Maine) would be a way of making their states relevant in the next election — and the votes of their citizens! If they think there was low turnout this time (I don’t agree — I think this was a fraudulently won election), then wait until next time. There is absolutely no incentive to go out and vote if you’re a republican in a blue state and your state is not a swing state. There would be no such thing as a swing state if every state awarded electoral votes proportionately. I’m sick and tired of a few cities in OH deciding who our president is going to be.

    The fact that we have the highest number of governors is the only glimmer of hope we have. Let’s see these republican governors get together and change the election laws in each of their states, including going back to paper ballots, though I won’t hold my breath.

  • Lee

    Socialized medicine is horrible. Doctor shortages (there is a two-year waiting list for a doctor in Toronto), long waits for surgery, taxed to the nth degree to pay for government subsidies, no personalized visits. It’s an in/out factory so that doctors can see as many patients per day in order to get paid by the government. I go on-line to diagnose whatever new ailment I acquire and to find out what remedy there is. I would rather talk to my pharmacist than go to my pill-pushing doctor. What few private clinics there are in Ontario charge $2000 to join.

    • deeme

      I agree with you when I lost my insurance going on two years ago ,because small businesses , many had the insight to get out of the insurance business,I decided to do just that, you would be surprised how much help pharmacists can be..You are giving everyone a heads up ,what’s coming our way..

    I just wonder what happened to the Bill Whittle who said that he’d abandon the Republican party and opt to form a Conservative party. It seems that he, like a lot of you out there, have given up on that pre-election oath, and have decided to just “soldier on”, thinking you’re so so valiant in doing so, despite having given up on the greater challenge and greater valiance in actually saying goodbye to the Republican party once and for all, much like one might say goodbye to a limb that has rotted with gangrene and which must be amputated so as to save the body. That’s what all the Roves, the Romneys and the McCains of the world are – They’re rotten flesh which is going to kill the body lest you amputate NOW. Don’t get all sentimental on that limb. Cut it off — You’ll be stronger and healthier without it.
