Buchanan Blacklisted

My days as a political analyst at MSNBC have come to an end.  After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing, after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.

The calls for my firing began almost immediately with the Oct. 18 publication of "Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?"
Without a hearing, they smear and stigmatize as racist, homophobic or anti-Semitic any who contradict what George Orwell once called their "smelly little orthodoxies." They then demand that the heretic recant, grovel, apologize, and pledge to go forth and sin no more. Defy them, and they will go after the network where you work, the newspapers that carry your column, the conventions that invite you to speak. If all else fails, they go after the advertisers. I know these blacklisters. They operate behind closed doors, with phone calls, mailed threats and off-the-record meetings. They work in the dark because, as Al Smith said, nothing un-American can live in the sunlight.

Splashing More Bourbon Into His Christmas Eggnog

Jeff Minick of the Smoky Mountain News offers holiday shoppers a top list of books to put under the Christmas tree.  Minick writes:
Patrick J. Buchanan’s Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? (ISBN 978-0-312-57997-5, $27.99) will leave the most cockeyed optimist in the country splashing more bourbon into his Christmas eggnog. Here, as he has done in previous books, Buchanan works statistics, history, economics and philosophy into a bomb that he then hurls at the reader through his book. Buchanan returns to some of the themes of his earlier best-sellers — the moral and economic decline of the West, the demographics behind our changing world, the tribalism which is slowly replacing nationalism (a trend which, as Buchanan writes, President Obama had the foresight, unlike so many other politicians, to discuss at length in a political address). What sets this book apart from some of his work is that Suicide of a Superpower offers ideas which would appeal both to Tea Partiers and the Occupy Wall Street crowd. He favors labor unions, calls for the legalization of certain recreational drugs, and a closing of many of America’s overseas military bases while at the same time espousing Western culture and warning of the dangers of American out-of-control entitlement programs.

Bought and Paid for: Gingrich's Corruption

As blogger Michael J. Gaynor noted, on "The McLaughlin Group" show broadcast on the weekend of November 18th, Patrick J. Buchanan opined that the $1.6 million paid by Freddie Mac to a Gingrich company signified that Freddie Mac had "bought Newt" instead of his business advice and "it wasn't a was corruption."

In his New York Times Best Seller, Suicide of a Superpower, Buchanan highlights the corruption that has changed Washington, DC from pro-America advocates into advocates of unfair "free" trade, big business, foreign governments, or those with the biggest checkbook, like Freddie Mac.

Hottest Read on the Eastern Shore

Bill Colley of WGMD, a Talk Radio Station located in Rehoboth, Delaware, in the heart of the Eastern Shore blogged:
Yesterday I bought my copy of Patrick J. Buchanan’s Suicide of a Superpower. I’m late. The book has been the hottest read of Eastern Shore conservatives and libertarians for several weeks. The impact of the 400 plus pages can’t be understated. The work has so frightened Buchanan’s TV network he appears barred from appearing on camera. The American left and its globalist handlers want Buchanan and his words to go away. Greater distribution would surely wake a great many of the slumbering who would be natural allies for nationalists and the political right. The country is coming unglued. This is intentional. The love of country exhibited in schools, churches andMain Stree tparades of my childhood is now labeled jingoism. Buchanan states there is no longer a dominant European Judeo-Christian culture in North America. The past is vilified, universal service ended nearly 4 decades past and as another author stated 15 years ago, Americans are Bowling Alone.

God, Turkeys and Indians

With the political left causing the secularization of Thanksgiving, it is of no surprise that most government-run schools teach children that Thanksgiving is a celebration of the Pilgrims thanking the Indians for helping the Pilgrims harvest corn.

Thanking God or our Divine Creator  is so passe'.

In Patrick J. Buchanan's Suicide of a Superpower, he dedicates an entire chapter about how the United States is losing its Christian heritage which is right on point.

Last week's secularization of thanking God for the blessings of liberty and religious freedom has been replaced by the mad rush to buy an iPad at Best Buy. Black Friday is the color of mourning and symbolizes the death of America's Christian heritage.

Harshest Critic Agrees that America is Dying

One of the harshest critiques of Patrick J. Buchanan's New York Times Best Seller comes from Chris Ladd of the Houston Chronicle. He wrote a lengthy blog post denouncing Buchanan's book.  All said, he agrees that America is dying, but shows no concern.

Ladd writes:
America dies over and over again in a thousand different ways, like the cells in your skin. The real test of a culture is not whether it dies, but whether it regenerates itself. What frightens these folks is our nerve-racking dynamism; our accelerating pace of reinvention. We are in fact living through the end of white America. That “end” will be just as catastrophic as the end of Puritan American, the end of Colonial America, the end of White, Male Landowner America, the end of New England Whaling America, the end of Slaveholding America, the end of Rural America, the end of Pre-Industrial America, the end of Jim Crow America, the end of Industrial America and all of the other endings America has experienced in her short history.

In other words, we can be confident that this ending will be yet another in a jarring series of gateways to an ever freer, richer, and more powerful future. Such optimism may be out of step with the spirit of the moment, but it is still the most reasonable and sober expectation of what’s in store for us.

29 Posts by Left-Wing Smear Stooges: Media Matters

Yesterday marked the 29th inaccurate, insidious, and inflammatory post about Patrick J. Buchanan and his National Best Seller Suicide of Superpower by left-wing smear stooges, Media Matters--and we appreciate the free publicity.

That equals about one post every day since the book debuted on October 18th.

Marching goose step with the militant gays and anti-Catholic bigots, Media Matters has spewed hundreds of words of hate and spent many hours pumping up the book.

As Will Rogers said, "You can say what you want about me, but spell my name right."

Widespread Fear of Internal Decay

In a column yesterday, Gregory Rodriguez of the Los Angeles Times wrote:
Reflecting a widespread fear of internal decay and external competition, survey after survey shows that Americans think the country has seen its best days. Last month, a poll commissioned by the Hill newspaper found more than two-thirds (69%) of respondents think the U.S. is in decline, and 83% are very or somewhat worried about the nation's future. Like almost everyone else on the globe, a growing number of us, according to the Pew Global Attitudes Project, believe that China will surpass the U.S. as the premier superpower.

But concern over America's place in the world is one thing, hysteria is quite another. Paleoconservative commentator Pat Buchanan has just published a book, "Suicide of a Superpower," in which he suggests that the United States will collapse by 2025. Likewise, Harvard historian Niall Ferguson, who only eight years ago argued that the U.S. was well positioned to play a constructive imperial role throughout the world, has a new book out in which he asserts the "imminence of our decline and fall."
