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.

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.


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 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, 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, 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. 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.

Wednesday, October 19, 2011 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, 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

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.

Media Matters, a self-described "progressive research and information center,"  has breathlessly pumped up Patrick J. Buchanan's latest book, Suicide of a Superpower, by laying out the long-lasting friendship Buchanan has had with the Drudge Report for the past decade.

Hananoki has unwittingly given the public a preview of Buchanan's next book to be released Tuesday--graciously stirring  buzz on the left side of the aisle.

Political Book of the Year

(C) Washington Times
From Jeffrey T. Kuhner's column in today's The Washington Times:
Is America in its twilight years? Patrick J. Buchanan argues it is. Americans, especially conservatives, should heed his warnings. The very future of our republic is at stake. Mr. Buchanan has written the political book of the year - and maybe of our time.

In “Suicide of a Superpower” (Thomas Dunne Books, 2011), the nationally syndicated columnist and TV commentator delivers a damning indictment of the past two decades. His thesis: America is in decline. Unless it is reversed, the United States - like great republics before it - will be swept into the dustbin of history.
Mr. Buchanan argues that our leaders have embraced the “New World Order.” Unlimited immigration, free trade, open borders, strident multiculturalism, globalism, a cradle-to-grave welfare state, neo-pagan morality, massive deficit spending and democratic imperialism - together they have triggered the moral, economic and spiritual disintegration of America.

Mr. Buchanan was one of the few conservatives to directly challenge the Great Society Republicanism prevalent throughout the George W. Bush administration. He opposed No Child Left Behind, the Medicare prescription-drug benefit, runaway spending, amnesty for illegal aliens, economic globalization and the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). He argues that the GOP establishment had lost its ideological way, abandoning principle in favor of power. Niccolo Machiavelli trumped Ronald Reagan.
