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 crime...it 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.

One of Politico's Top Sellers

This week, Politico.com's list of top selling books on American politics lists Patrick J. Buchanan's Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive Until 2025? at number 5.

A National Best Seller, a New York Times Best Seller, and now a Politico.com Top Seller, Buchanan's book is hotter than ever.

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."

Queens and Queers at Penn State

Our gay friend and blogger David Badash who loves to blog about Patrick J. Buchanan is in turmoil. 

With the child abuse case rocking Penn State, Badash is upset that Buchanan has linked the episode to the moral collapse of the United States, which now allows homosexual marriages in some states and the North American Man/Boy Love Association (a homosexual pedophile group) to operate freely.

Calling homosexual acts of sodomy a "innate trait fixed at birth," Badash tries to justify Jerry Sandusky's shower behavior anything but homosexual in nature, even calling Sandusky a married man.

What, a football coach can't be gay or in the closet? Don't be an intolerant bigot David!

Badash writes, "Gays are no more likely to be pedophiles than straights are." True, but at Penn State the queens and queers are real, and now out of the closet.

Sandusky appears to have been driven by his homosexual lust, and the scandal and cover-up are true signs of the times: the moral collapse of Happy Valley.

No wonder Buchanan's Suicide of a Superpower is a national best seller.

On Death Bed, Smith Praises Buchanan's Suicide of a Superpower

In a heartbreaking final column for The Baltimore Sun, conservative columnist and radio host Ron Smith (pictured) announced today he is foregoing chemotherapy for Stage 4 pancreatic cancer and instead will receive palliative care at home. He has weeks to live.

In his last column, Smith writes:

I have just finished reading Pat Buchanan's "Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?" It lays out what has led us to the current unsustainable circumstances that bedevil us. I recommend it to anyone interested in understanding what likely lies ahead.

In my lifetime, America has been transformed from a cohesive society — the greatest country of modern times — into what Buchanan calls "A multiracial, multicultural, multilingual, multiethnic stew of a nation that has no successful precedent in the history of the world."

The country is torn asunder between those who perceive a profound decline and those who believe passionately that there is no decline at all, but rather the beginnings of a march into a progressive utopia. That all previous utopian schemes have failed utterly is ignored.

What is a mere individual to do? Live as sane and decent a life as you can, love your family and friends and understand that everybody is in this together.

My work here is done.
We send our prayers and strength to the Smith family during this extremely challenging time.

Three Weeks on New York Times Best Sellers List

For the third week in a row, Patrick J. Buchanan's Suicide of a Superpower has made it in the prestegious New York Times list of best-selling hard-cover non-fiction books.

With all the controversy and mindless name-calling by the Left, Buchanan's book has captured a wide and broad reading audience.

Buchanan Shares the Love

For all the hue and cry over Buchanan’s supposed “hate,” the emotion that runs through Suicide of a Superpower is not hate, but love.  Buchanan sees the country he grew up in and loved passing away, and he wants to raise his voice in its defense.  As Buchanan writes... “Americans who seek stricter immigration control have been charged with many social sins: racism, xenophobia, nativism. Yet none has sought to expel any fellow American based on color or creed. We have only sought to preserve the country we grew up in. Do not people everywhere do that, without being reviled? What motivates people who insist that America’s doors be held open wide until the European majority has disappeared?  What is their grudge against the old America that eats at their heart?”
The truth is the left-wing mouthpieces who attack Buchanan and do the name calling are filled with hate and bigotry.

Colbert King Jokes about Segregation

Colbert King, columnist for The Washington Post, wrote a sarcastic piece against Patrick J. Buchanan writing:
Speaking of our place in America, MSNBC contributor, author and former Republican presidential candidate Pat Buchanan reminds us in his just-released book, "Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?," of what black folks have been missing. I never knew we had it so good.

Writing about the segregation era, Buchanan observes, "Back then, black and white lived apart, went to different schools and churches, played on different playgrounds, and went to different restaurants, bars, theaters, and soda fountains. But we shared a country and a culture. We were one nation. We were Americans."

Gosh, I didn't know that. Buchanan and I grew up in the same segregated Washington, D.C. I don't recall black folks having much of a say in the decision to live "apart." The situation about which Buchanan speaks so wistfully was, to my recollection, a racial apartheid arrangement strictly of white people's making. And Lord help us if we strayed across the line.
King ought to know better than to joke or make light about segregation.
 
Even though African-Americans suffered horrific discrimination and enormous injustices, Buchanan observes correctly that Blacks in that era considered themselves Americans, no-less, no-more than others "across the line." 
 
Although King dishonestly and slyly tries to say Buchanan was discussing the affects of and treatment during Segregation;  Buchanan was clearly not. 

Martin Luther King, Jr. was as American as Richard M. Nixon, regardless of their condition or politics.

Buchanan Refutes Charges of Racism and Social Darwinism

Patrick J. Buchanan was interviewed by media personality Rebecca Costa  (pictured) who asked him about the allegations of racism and Social Darwinism in his New York Times Best Seller, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?

Costa published this excerpt:

According to Buchanan these indictments come from individuals who have misread the book, “Even identical twins are not born equal. What we want is equality of rights and opportunity - similar to the Olympics where everyone can try-out but we choose the people who represent the United States based solely on their proven ability to excel. That’s the way societies move forward. . .” [Buchanan] continued, “I was in the most egalitarian society of the 20th Century when I stepped off the plane with Richard Nixon in the People’s Republic of China - where everyone was equal, but no one was free. When you have absolute freedom, it automatically produces inequality – because we are unequal in our talents and abilities and drives and courage and perseverance. . . No system is perfect, but the free enterprise system has done more to uplift humankind. I’m not just talking about the robber barons of the 19th century – but the average working man had horrendous working conditions. But these improved over 10, 20, 30 and 40 years, until Americans – the same people who were once swept out of Europe – had the highest living standards the world had ever seen. Freedom is what did that.”

92% want Buchanan on MSNBC

92 percent of voters in an online poll conducted by Mediabistro.com want Patrick J. Buchanan to be able to go on MSNBC to discuss his New York Times Best Seller, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?

Color of Change, a left-wing organization with eight known members, has been calling for MSNBC to muzzle Buchanan, the former advisor to three U.S. Presidents, because of his book. The poll results indicate that the Color of Change Censorship Campaign has backfired.

Mediabistro.com, which runs the TV Newser website, asked readers yesterday, “Should Pat Buchanan be allowed on MSNBC to talk about his book?” As of 3:15 p.m. EST today, 92 percent of respondents said yes, while only a mere 5 percent said no.

According to Michael Calderone of The Huffington Post, an unnamed MSNBC Executive has told him that MSNBC made a “conscious decision” not to have Buchanan on air to promote his book. The allegation has been disputed.

Buchanan Banned from MSNBC?

UPDATE: Visit our latest blog post: 92% want Buchanan on MSNBC.

The Huffington Post's Michael Calderone and his leftist pals are spreading a smear: Buchanan has been banned from MSNBC.

While Patrick J. Buchanan is off his regular gig at MSNBC so that he can promote his New York Times Best Seller, Suicide of a Superpower, Calderone, taking his lead from anti-Catholic bigots and left-wing loud mouths, is regurgitating an unverified, false claim.

And now TV Newser's Managing Editor has been duped.

Chris Ariens (pictured) writes, "An MSNBC executive told HuffPo's Michael Calderone that there had been a conscious decision not to have Buchanan on air because of the views expressed in the book..."

But if Ariens had read Calderone's revised posting, he'd note Buchanan has been on air AFTER his book launch. In addition, MSNBC declined to comment on the matter according to Calderone's same blog post.

So our question, who is this so-called "MSNBC executive?"  Why isn't Ariens verifying with his reliable sources at MSNBC and instead relying on the unreliable Calderone?

As sloppy and lazy as Calderone is, sadly Ariens has matched or exceeded his pal's slothfulness.

HuffPo's Calderone: A Lazy and Sloppy Journalist

Yesterday's post by Michael Calderone on The Huffington Post website was erroneous. Feeding right from the bosom of left-wing bigots and not checking his facts before the story posted, Calderone proved he is a lazy journalist. Calderone, who wrongly wrote that Patrick J. Buchanan hadn't been on MSNBC since his best seller Suicide of a Superpower had been launched, was forced to post a correction.

Worse is Calderone's sloppy but revealing Tweets.

When his story first posted, Calderone tweeted, "MSNBC's kept Pat Buchanan off air since controversial book dropped -- some groups hope for good."

With Calderone acknowledging that MSNBC declined to comment on his story, how can he declare MSNBC "kept Pat Buchanan off air" when the facts prove otherwise? And what "groups" are these? Media Matters, Anti-Catholic bigot Abe Foxman, and the eight-known-members of Color of Change. Not a winning coalition to say the least, but a hodge podge of self-promoting, name-calling leftists.

After his editors slapped his hand for making a grave error and then posting a correction, Calderone tweeted, "Correction: Pat Buchanan’s made one appearance on MSNBC since book published -- not since COC campaign."

So now Calderone alleges that Buchanan hasn't been on because of the Color of Change campaign? How about hasn't been on since the Herman Cain sexual harassment scandal broke or hasn't been on since Kim Kardashian (pictured) ended her 72 day marriage?

What leaps of judgement with no sources. With so many spokespersons and others being fired for twittering their inappropriate opinions, Calderone proves he is an idiot stooge of the left, and a lazy and sloppy journalist.

The facts are Buchanan has a wonderful relationship with his employer MSNBC and he currently is "off the reservation" promoting his book.  The left is trying to find deeper meaning in all this is like convincing yourself that you're eating a Rib Eye steak dinner by meditating on a piece of beef jerky for an hour beforehand.

Left-Wing Conspiracies, MSNBC, and Buchanan

If it wasn't bad enough with the orchestrated name-calling by left-wing groups, liberal conspiracy theorists are now claiming Patrick J. Buchanan is MIA on MSNBC since the launch of his New York Times Best Seller, Suicide of a Superpower.

Michael Calderone (pictured) of the liberal blog site The Huffington Post was forced to correct his story today after alleging that Buchanan hadn't been on MSNBC since October 15th.

If Calderone had done his homework, he'd had listened to the Imus in the Morning Show simulcasted on the Fox Business Network on October 18th:
Imus: "When you have a book, they [MSNBC] let you appear with me? or..." Buchanan: "When I have a book...I say they [MSNBC] say you can wander off the reservation, go to various places, as long as you come back."
But the left isn't satisfied and seems to be drooling over nothing. And what Calderone really failed to emphasize was Buchanan's positive relationship with MSNBC. He only mentioned it in passing:
While discussing Buchanan's new book on GBTV, [Glenn] Beck suggested that Buchanan could be completely open on his show. "It's OK, I know you work at MSNBC. I know the lion's cage you have to go into," Beck said, grabbing Buchanan's hand and mock consoling him. "You don't have to even mention you were here. It's OK." "What you don't understand is that I'm like a Jesuit missionary to the Iroquois over there," Buchanan said, chuckling. "No, that's my home network, and I enjoy working over there." Beck broke out again in laughter. "I believed him," he said. "I believed him."(Emphasis added)
Unfortunately for the lefties filled with hate and bigotry, and whose outlandish antics and name-calling only helped boost sales, Patrick J. Buchanan will be coming back to the reservation, MSNBC, with yet another best seller under his belt.

Rejection of Christian Roots

The blog God Discussion reports:

According to Pat Buchanan, conservative commentator and former GOP presidential candidate, America is steadily declining because of its "steady rejection of its Christian roots" and the declining faith in churches.  He sat down with the American Family Association's Brian Fischer to promote his book, Suicide of a Super Power. Buchanan says that religion is the source of all morality and the source of all ethics and that when religion goes, the culture goes, the civilization goes, and finally the people begin to die. Citing the Supreme Court's rejection of a case about the erection of crosses on Utah's highways and criticizing President Obama, Fischer claimed that efforts to purge the mention of God in the public square are happening daily.  "Well, it's the de-Christianization of America," Buchanan opined.  "If the faith,  Christianity, gave birth to our civilization and you reject it, again, the civilization will die and the people will die."

Oakland Violence: A Predictor of Things to Come?

Image appearing on Seattle PI website.
With his hot-selling Suicide of a Superpower making the National Best Sellers list for the second week in a row, we can ask, Is Patrick J. Buchanan a predictor of things to come?

Last weekend, Buchanan correctly predicted that Occupy Wall Street would turn violent. The Daily Caller reported Sunday:
During this weekend’s broadcast of “The McLaughlin Group,” host John McLaughlin asked his panel about what would happen to Occupy Wall Street as its novelty wears off and the weather gets colder. Amid mixed reactions, conservative MSNBC contributor Pat Buchanan described a scenario where freezing temperatures bring out the movement’s violent side. “It’s going to end very, very badly with these folks in the winter,” Buchanan said, “and they’re not going to be getting publicity and they’re going to be acting up and acting badly like the worst of the demonstrators in the 60s … not just overnight camping: They’re going to start fighting with the cops.”
Yesterday, the Associated Press reported:
A protest that shut down the Port of Oakland to show the broadening reach of the Occupy Wall Street movement ended in violence when police in riot gear arrested dozens of protesters overnight who broke into a vacant building, shattered downtown windows, sprayed graffiti and set blazes along the way. At least four protesters were hospitalized Thursday with various injuries, including one needing stitches after fighting with an officer, police said. Several officers were also injured but didn't need hospitalization.
In his  national best selling book, A Republic, Not an Empire, published in 1999, two years before 9/11, Buchanan predicted a terrorist attack by Al Qaeda on U.S. soil. His scenario laid out a "dirty bomb" explosion in Seattle.

In Suicide of a Superpower, Buchanan lays out what is disturbing and destroying "domestic tranquility" and a plan on how to preserve the Republic.

Americans are listening, reading, and then wondering, Is Buchanan right, again?

Abe and the Three Anti-Catholic Tenors

Showing time and time again that he is an anti-Catholic bigot, Abraham H. Foxman and his half dozen supporters at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) used their stock-in-trade name-calling to blast Patrick J. Buchanan and his New York Times Best Seller, Suicide of a Superpower in a news release yesterday.

Foxman, who appears to show enormous personal hatred and bigotry against Buchanan, was baptized into Catholicism by a nanny during the Holocaust.   He returned to the Jewish faith and his parents near the end of the war.

Maybe having a chip on his shoulder or enormous envy, Foxman has been obsessed for over a decade with Buchanan, a practicing Catholic who, unlike Foxman,  once served as a Senior Advisor to three U.S. Presidents.

For decades now, Foxman  and his cronies have repeatedly denounced and demonized the Catholic Church in bigoted tirades.

We were expecting the "three tenors" to all be singing the same name-calling, anti-Catholic Opera. Thus, we weren't surprised by Foxman's high-pitched news release.

Next it will be countertenor Rabbi Marvin Hier.

Unfortunately,  the final tenor, Irv Rubin, won't be joining the show --- he jumped to his death and committed suicide in 2002 like a distraught mezzo-soprano.

Right Wing Sell-Outs Defend China over Buchanan

After rattling the faux feathers of the Left-Wing, Patrick J. Buchanan's remarks on trade deficits with China in his national best seller, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? has brought the wrath of Right-Wing free-traders who have sold out America.

In a blog post that attempts to discredit Buchanan (and the positive review of Buchanan's book by Washington Times Editor Brett M. Decker),  Daniel Rivera Greenwood of the Competitive Enterprise Institute writes:
Many of the “made in China” products we see at big-box retailers are not produced in the United States simply because they are too labor-intensive to be made by American producers.
What? Too labor-intensive?? That's what manufacturing is all about. Is Greenwood saying Americans are too lazy, too stupid to do the work?

Color of Change Slapped in the Face

Color of Change, a leftist organization with eight known members and run by Rashad Robinson (pictured), got a stinging slap in the face from respected Chicago Tribune columnist Clarence Page, who wrote:
That's why I do not support the call from Color Of Change, the left-progressives who have launched an online petition drive to have MSNBC fire [Patrick J.] Buchanan from his gig as an on-air analyst and in-house lightning rod. While I frequently disagree with everything Buchanan says after "Good morning," I also believe talk shows should air a range of views, not muzzle them. People can disagree, as the saying goes, without being disagreeable.
Last week, the group along with left-wing cohorts Media Matters and the Southern Poverty Law Center, orchestrated a campaign of hate, bigotry, and distortion against Buchanan only to help create more publicity for his book, Suicide of a Superpower. The book skyrocketed in a week to the number three, best selling nonfiction hardback across the United States according to Publishers Weekly.

Death of American Manufacturing

Brett M. Decker, (pictured) Editorial Page Editor of The Washington Times, reviewed Patrick J. Buchanan's national best seller, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?

In his review, Decker calls on readers to do the "China Test" and see how many products readers use on a daily basis are Made in China. The fact is almost everything we use (computers, iPhones, dishware) is made in China. And that's where Buchanan's book makes an impression with Decker.

Decker writes:
In his new blockbuster book, “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?” Patrick J. Buchanan chronicles the demise of American manufacturing. “From 2000 to 2010, America saw 50,000 factories close and 6 million manufacturing jobs disappear,” he writes. “Manufacturing, 27 percent of the U.S. economy in 1950, is down to 11 percent and accounts for only 9 percent of the non-farm labor force.” This is not only bad for the working class because service jobs pay half as much on average as manufacturing jobs, it is dangerous for national security as well. Military contractors are dependent on parts made abroad, which means America’s ability to project force is tied to foreign suppliers whose interests might not always coincide with our own. “The defense industry has been off-shored,” warned former South Carolina Sen. Fritz Hollings. “Today, we can’t go to war except for the favor of a foreign country.”....President Obama has admitted that “At no time in human history has a nation of diminished economic vitality maintained its military and political primacy,” yet his policies have gutted the U.S. economy to its worst condition since the Great Depression. Clare Booth Luce quipped that, “The difference between an optimist and a pessimist is that the pessimist is usually better informed.” Pat Buchanan’s new book provides all the information anyone needs to be pessimistic about the future.

Astute Diagnosis of America’s Problems

Forrmer Congressman Virgil Goode (R-VA) has written a very positive review of Patrick J. Buchanan's national best seller Suicide of a Superpower published on The Daily Caller website.  Goode writes:
For the last two decades, Pat Buchanan has warned that America is on the edge of ruin due to our irrational immigration, economic and foreign policies. As events have proven Buchanan right, Americans have become more receptive to his brand of conservatism, which he lays out in his new book Suicide of a Superpower. 
On the issue of trade, just last week only a handful of Republicans voted against three sovereignty-sacrificing trade deals supported by the Obama administration. Buchanan, in contrast, makes a strong case that the $6.2 trillion trade deficit America ran in the past decade has ruined this country’s manufacturing base.
While Buchanan paints a very bleak portrait of America, he offers very clear solutions to get us back on the right track....While I might quibble with a few points, Buchanan offers an astute diagnosis of America’s problems and gives constructive suggestions to put us back on track.

Tea Party for Buchanan

Jillian Rayfield, news intern-turned-blogger at Talking Points Memo (TPM),  wrote yesterday about how the Tea Party Nation's founder is rallying around Patrick J. Buchanan.  Buchanan's new book, Suicide of a Superpower,  made Publishers Weekly's National Best Sellers list yesterday.

Rayfield blogged:
Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips(pictured) defended Pat Buchanan against charges of racism by African-American civil rights group Color of Change, arguing that “the racist in this story is the group, the Color of Change.” Phillips, in a blog post on Tuesday, wrote that “despite my opinions of Pat Buchanan, he is clearly a man of accomplishment who does very intelligently express the sentiments of parts of the conservative movement. It is no shock that the left is going after him.” “Let’s be blunt,” he added, “the racist in this story is the group, the Color of Change. They are a very anti-American, far left group.” These “left wing racist nuts,” Phillips said, are “a danger to America and to freedom.”
Although earlier this week Rayfield looked more like an intern than a journalist with a horribly slanted and inflammatory post against Buchanan's national best seller Suicide of a Superpower, she seems to have redeemed herself with a more balanced story.

Studying at Cornell wasn't a waste after all.

It's Official: National Best Seller

Today, Patrick J. Buchanan's Suicide of a Superpower debuted at #3 on the Publishers Weekly list of best selling nonfiction hardcover books. See the list here.

Do Ask, Do Tell

Of all the loony left-wing and kooky right-wing bloggers, our hats off to Gay Rights blogger David Badash who wrote:

"And now, the Buchanan team has decided that they can make far more money pushing his book as a victimization vehicle than on the basis of its merits alone. So now the Buchanan book’s blog has decided to post stories of the Left attacking Buchanan for his 18th century views."

Actually David, we think the book can make far more money both ways: on its merits and on the attacks. We appreciate any publicity the left or right create for the book.

Our blog has had more hits in the past 24 hours than ever before as people hear about us through sensational blog postings or political attacks.

So David, do ask, do tell your friends about Suicide of a Superpower.

Read Badash's post here.

Left-Wing Advances Buchanan

So the left still doesn't get it!

Leah Nelson, a  Montgomery, Alabama-based left-wing blogger, posted a new attack on the Southern Poverty Law Center's website falsely claiming Patrick J. Buchanan was "reacting furiously" to  a left-wing censorship campaign based on hate and bigotry.

Wrong!

Frankly, we are pleased that hate-filled Media Matters, the eight-member Color of Change, and now a legitimate left-wing institution, the Southern Poverty Law Center, are spending resources and man-hours pumping up the controversy and flat-out falsehoods surrounding Buchanan's best-selling book, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? 

Suicide of a Superpower is booming in sales because of the attention he garnered from his radio appearance this week on NPR's Diane Rehm Show (broadcasting on 160 stations) and the left-wing campaign of distortion and hate.

We want book sales and the left has delivered. Keep it coming!

Hate and Bigotry Target Buchanan

Two-left wing groups, Color of Change, with eight known members, and its co-conspirators at Media Matters---self-endowed Orwellian censors--are attempting to gag and have Patrick J. Buchanan fired as an MSNBC Political Commentator as his new book, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive Until 2025?, soars in sales.  (The book has been a top nonfiction bestseller at Amazon.com since it debuted last week.) Using charged racist language, gross misinterpretations, out of context quotes, and sugar-coated anti-Catholic sentiments, Media Matters has written 16 vile posts in the past 12 days in an orchestrated campaign of hate and bigotry.

UPDATE: Patrick J. Buchanan's new book made Publishers Weekly's National Best Sellers list.

Incivility and Crudeness of Public Debate

Calling Patrick J. Buchanan a "bareknuckle brawler and wisest, most objective man in American public affairs," Steve Sailer (pictured), movie critic for The American Conservative and blogger at VDARE.com, writes a glowing book review of Buchanan's new book, Suicide of a Superpower. Sailer writes:
Buchanan has made himself into exactly what you would want in a political intellectual: famously pugnacious in argument, but a gentleman who fights fair and feels the other side is entitled to its say. He wants to win arguments, but not suppress and personally destroy his opponents. In his new book, Buchanan laments that in 21st Century America:
"The crudeness of our public debate is matched by its incivility. In politics it is insufficient to defeat an opponent. One must demonize, disgrace, and destroy him. The tradition of political foes being social friends when the sun goes down ... is passé. Today, we criminalize politics and go for the throat."
Buchanan's genial honesty helps explain why relatively few liberal Bigfoot journalists have piled on to the two decade-long neocon jihad against him. They are ideologically closer to Buchanan’s neocon detractors, but they know from personal experience that Pat is the better man.

TPM's "Crazy" and "Racist" Smear

Now the Talking Points Memo (TPM) is following the lead of Media Matters and making racist smears.  TPM is taking quotes from Patrick J. Buchanan's hot seller Suicide of a Superpower and inserting inflammatory language before the quotes to provoke readers.  Calling the quotes "crazy" or "racist," Jillian Rayfield, a TPM intern-promoted-to-blogger, (pictured) lays out twelve quotes.  

Warnings Ignored Consistently by GOP

Jack Hunter notes that the "old Republican guard" has ignored Patrick J. Buchanan's warnings consistently, writing:
When Buchanan was complaining about our illegal immigration problems, these same Republicans were calling him “racist.” Now concern for illegal immigration is a standard Republican talking point. When Buchanan was complaining about unfair trade practices, he was dismissed as an “isolationist,” while now Republicans as mainstream as Mitt Romney seem to want a trade war with China. Buchanan warned that our constant interventionism overseas might produce horrific blowback, even predicting a 9/11-style attack in his 1999 book A Republic, Not an Empire. No one listened. Buchanan tried to explain Where the Right Went Wrong in 2004, but the right insisted on continuing to go wrong.
Hunter, the political blogger known and as the Southern Avenger, a contributor to The American Conservative, and writer for The Charelston City Paper, has written a favorable review of Buchanan's latest book, Suicide of a Superpower and summarizes:
In his new book, Buchanan makes the case that it is—that any sober observer must admit America, in the historic sense, is over. Suicide of a Superpower delivers exactly what its title suggests, outlining how the long-dominant philosophies of liberalism, multiculturalism, egalitarianism, imperialism, and feminism, along with various other anti-Western and anti-Christian pathologies, have mortally wounded America’s traditional cultural core.

Buchanan's Book Driving the Debate on Politico

The Arena, a political discussion forum on Politico.com, focused on Suicide of a Superpower this weekend. Vivyan Tran, web producer of Politico, wrote:
In his latest book, political commentator and former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan asks whether America will survive to the year 2025.... He attributes multiculturalism and mass immigration as its cause and has long called for a moratorium on immigration.
Tran then posed the following question:
Will the 2012 electorate agree with Buchanan, a two-time GOP presidential candidate who later ran as an independent? How much of a factor will the immigration issue be in the Republican primary fight? Can the party appeal to Hispanics, the fastest growing bloc of voters?

Left-Wing Gone Wild

48 hours out, soaring sales, and a blazing media tour, Patrick J. Buchanan's hot new book Suicide of a Superpower has earned the scorn of left-wing groups ---generating publicity and boosting sales.

Media Matters has dedicated five lengthy post in less than a week to personally attack Buchanan and Suicide of a Superpower. Even Buchanan's supportive comments about immigrants were viciously distorted by a writer for Media Matters who appears to be a bigot. She seems to view all immigrants, legal and illegal, as being non-white.  Worse, another Media Matters bigot-blogger disingenuously inserted the word "segregation" in relationship to Black Americans to provoke hate and distort Buchanan's words.

Salon.com then piled on (as we noted last night) when Editor-in-Chief Joan Walsh foolishly declared Buchanan had lost the culture war. One of her lackeys, Peter Finocchiaro (pictured) then posted over a half dozen audio excerpts from the audio book version of Suicide of a Superpower, showing an "ignorant moment" of the left-wing: when it comes to books, any publicity is good publicity.

Salon.com declares "Buchanan Has Lost the Culture War"

As Patrick J. Buchanan's book Suicide of a Superpower has had a meteoric rise in the past 24 hours since its debut, Salon.com Editor-In-Chief Joan Walsh slammed the author in a lengthy post exemplifying exactly what Buchanan discusses in his book:  angry and irreconcilable divisiveness dominates the political landscape that is leading to the end of America as we know it.  In her post, Walsh recklessly declares, "Buchanan has lost the culture war."

Not so! Suicide of a Superpower is appealing to readers across the political spectrum and this evening hit #2 on the non-fiction bestsellers list at Amazon.com.

Observers are Suddenly Sounding a lot like Buchanan

In an opinion piece published by Reuters, Susan Glasser, Editor-in-Chief of Foreign Policy and former Washington Post editor writes:

The Amerislump is upon us. Conservative agitator Pat Buchanan’s new book says America might not survive until 2025; it’s called “The Suicide of a Superpower.” Even less alarmist observers are suddenly sounding a lot like Buchanan, as economists now predict that China may surpass the United States as the world’s largest economy a lot sooner than we thought, and important conferences are convened to deal with what Fareed Zakaria memorably dubbed “the post-American world.” Over at Foreign Policy, my colleague Joshua Keating (coiner of the “Amerislump” phrase) has taken to tracking all the gloom-and-doom punditry under the heading “Decline Watch” on our website—and not a day goes by without a classic example, from the poverty-stricken new muppet on Sesame Street who doesn’t have enough to eat, to the supposed cocaine slump on Wall Street and the new government initiative to attract Chinese shoppers here — so they can buy Made in China goods, but at the cheap prices caused by our undervalued dollar.

From Canada: "Most Honest" Commentaries on the West

Michael Coren, a well-known Canadian journalist and host of The Arena on Canada's Sun News Network interviewed Pat Buchanan tonight about his new book to be released tomorrow and wrote the following review:

"[Pat Buchanan's] latest book - Suicide of a Superpower - is one of the most honest, and worrying, commentaries on the West in many years. 'The transformation has been dramatic and unique in our history,' [Buchanan] says, 'and the reason America has and will lose its greatness is that we are no longer unified. Anybody can become a good American, coming from anywhere in the world. But whereas in the past we asked them to become American, now we encourage America to become like them.' No pause, but straight into the argument. 'We've given away what made us one. Faith, symbols of unity, the European, overwhelmingly Christian heritage of the majority who were and made the country. People could be who and what they liked, but they had to know what the national core values and identity were. No longer.'"

Can't Dismiss Buchanan's Concern

Paul Craig Roberts, the former Assistant U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, economics professor and scholar, writes about Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? in a column for the Foreign Policy Journal. Noting that the United States is "overextended financially and militarily," Roberts writes, "I don’t think we can dismiss Buchanan’s concern as pessimistic." Read Roberts' entire column here.
