‘Tryphorgetin’ Back to Haunt Hillary After 8-Year Hiatus

Eight years ago this month, I was in fairly-regular contact with Bruce Chapman, the part-time producer of short and funny politically-incorrect videos. One of his spots touted the fictitious pharmaceutical product, “Tryphorgetin,” as it poked fun at Hillary Clinton in the fall of 2007 before seeming to disappear from the web after the 2008 elections. Today, it resurfaced in my Facebook feed, and I decided it was worth sharing again as the former first lady, senator and secretary of state makes another run for the White House.

Worth noting, this spoof ad was such a hit at the time that conservative talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh played it during the Oct. 5, 2007, broadcast of “The Rush Limbaugh Show.” Now, I hope Rush will play it again as we approach the homestretch of the 2016 presidential campaign.

FLASHBACK 2009: Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ Reviewed

Six years ago today, I shared news about a liberal political strategy that endangers our nation. Today, because many in the conservative universe seem to forget these details as often as they remember them, I’m sharing the news again, pulled from what remains of the BobMcCarty.com archives, and updated as necessary.

Saul Alinsky 'Rules for Radicals' Rule 13

“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” said President Barack Obama, directing his comments at Republican leaders in Congress early during the week of Jan. 26, 2009.  During a 15-minute segment on Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends program Jan. 29, 2009, Limbaugh responded by saying the 44th president was attempting to employ Rule #13 of the late Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”

Not familiar with Saul Alinski or his socialist “Rules”?  Fear not.

Part of a no-longer-online document, What Every Public Official Should Know About Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” Rule #13 reads as follows:

PICK THE TARGET, FREEZE IT, PERSONALIZE IT, AND POLARIZE IT.

Reread President Obama’s comment above, and you can see that Limbaugh was right: President Obama picked his target (i.e., Limbaugh); he personalized his message; and he turned the conservative radio talk show host into a polarizing figure by telling Republicans they can’t get things done by listening to Limbaugh.

Did President Obama continue to employ Alinsky’s 13 “Rules” during his six years in the Oval Office? Take a look at them below and decide for yourself:

1. Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
2. Never go outside the experience of your people.
3. Whenever possible, go outside of the experience of the enemy.
4. Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.
5. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.
6. A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.
7. A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.
8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.
9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.
11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.
12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

From race-baiting and out-of-control spending to reckless foreign policy and cover-ups of massive proportions, the Obama Administration has not only employed these Rules, but it has employed them in ways once thought unimaginable by all except the most radical politicos. And did I mention executive orders?! Damn!

I encourage you to print these “Rules” and use them as tools via which to keep track of Obama’s actions and the actions of other liberals, democrats and socialists of his ilk as the 2016 election cycle draws near. Then, in 2016, vote as if your life depends on it!

Former Blogger Offers Sarcastic ‘Thank You’ to Sullivan

After reading today about Andrew Sullivan informing his readers about his decision “to stop blogging in the near future,” I feel obligated to offer him a belated “thank you” for the sarcastic honor he conferred upon me a few years back. Why? Because I can relate to Sullivan on at least one level.

McCarty Hewitt Nomination 4-01-2010

You see, a few months after my blog had climbed to #82 on the February 2010 list of Top 100 Conservative Blogs, I gave up blogging full-time. Perhaps, it was the stress of living in a non-stop news cycle, but I decided to focus my time and attention on writing books — and I’ve finished three books since then. But I digress.

Anyway, Sullivan named me a Hewitt Award Nominee in April 2010. Though I never heard who, if anyone, won the award that year, I felt as if I had landed in great company after looking at the 2009 list of nominees for the award — and, of course, I wrote and published a post under the headline, “I Gladly Accept This Nomination.” The text of that post, which is no longer online, appears below:

Earlier today, after reading a post Pamela Geller published at Atlas Shrugs, I published a piece under the headline, Is State Dept Playing April Fools Joke on Israel? The difference between our posts?  I videotaped my computer screen as I went through the motions and clicks on the State Department web site to show proof that, at least for a while on April Fool’s Day, the page dedicated to information about Israel was gone.

Within a few hours, Andrew Sullivan had caught wind of my post and honored me as a Hewitt Award nominee in a post published at his The Atlantic blog, The Daily Dish.

What is the Hewitt Award?  According to this Sullivan post, it is “named after the absurd partisan fanatic, Hugh Hewitt (and) is given for the most egregious attempts to label Barack Obama as un-American, alien, treasonous, and far out of the mainstream of American life and politics.”

Who else has been nominated?  The following individuals were finalists for the Hewitt Award 2009:

• John J. Pitney Jr., National Review Online
• G. Gordon Liddy, Radio America
• Carol Platt Liebau, Townhall.com
• John L. Perry, Newsmax
• Rush Limbaugh, The Rush Limbaugh Show

Who won?  Rush Limbaugh with 50 percent of the 4,500+ votes.

I think I’m in good company; therefore, I gladly accept this nomination, Mr. Sullivan.

As mentioned above, I never found out if anyone won the 2010 version of The Hugh Hewitt Award or if anyone else was even nominated. So who knows? I might have won the whole shooting match!

Just in case I did win, I want to thank Sullivan. Before he disappears altogether.  Thanks, Andy.

Bob McCarty Offers Weekly Recap: Nov 15

This week was a productive one at Bob McCarty Headquarters. Below are snippets about what kept me busy:

SUNDAY, Nov. 9: In addition to announcing that my first crime-fiction novel had hit the marketplace in the post, The National Bet Now on Sale in Paperback, Ebook, I shared a piece about one method of communication used by Soldiers — including my dad — during World War II. Finally, I offered an update to an exclusive report I published two days earlier about the Oklahoma City Bombing trial taking place in Salt Lake City.

MONDAY, Nov. 10:  I shared news about something I have in common with the nation’s most-popular talk radio host in my post, Rush Limbaugh Threatens to Sue Democrat Committee.

TUESDAY, Nov. 11: On Veterans Day, I shared news about several special men in my life. The ones in my post, Story of Four Not-So-Famous Brothers Inspires, served during World War II. The one in my post, Wrongly Convicted By Military Justice System, American Soldiers Deserve as Much Attention as GITMO Detainees, served in the modern Army.

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 12:  I offered a warning in my post, YOU Might Be On A Federal Watch List!

THURSDAY, Nov. 13:  I showed off my printed wares along with dozens of other authors at a book lover’s event in O’Fallon, Mo.

FRIDAY, Nov. 14: On this busy day, I shared news about an auction, an interrogator, an indictment and a Saturday talk radio appearance on “TIPPING POINT with BOONE CUTLER” in Reno, Nev.

FYI: A film crew from Los Angeles will be visiting soon to interview me as part of a documentary they’re shooting. Though I can’t divulge more details at this time, I can tell you that the findings I share inside my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo, will be front and center. Meanwhile, I hope you’ll read and share my pieces and, of course, buy my books — including the one endorsed by Santa Claus. Thanks in advance!

Rush Limbaugh Threatens to Sue Democrat Committee

Much like Rush Limbaugh, who’s threatening to sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for defamation, I’m staunchly against sexual assault. At the same time, however, I advocate  for fair and impartial justice for those facing sexual assault allegations.

In my October 2011 nonfiction book, Three Days In August, I offer an in-depth look at one example of military justice that turned out to be anything but. In fact, New York Times best-selling author Richard Miniter read my book about Army Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart‘s brush with the military justice system and described it as painting “a convincing portrait of a military justice process that appears to have lacked one essential element – justice.”

Over the years since publishing the book, I’ve heard from dozens of individuals who, like Stewart, have personally experienced similar “railroading” — and I’ve heard from their friends and relatives, too — under the gavel of political correctness. In fact, I could write a library full of books about such cases. Unfortunately, Americans simply don’t seem to care much about such cases — at least it seems that way to me — unless they or a loved one are directly involved.

Among the many new faces arriving in Washington, D.C., next year, I hope some of them seize upon the opportunity to undo what people like Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) have done in recent years and restore the military justice system so that it delivers one thing and one thing only:  JUSTICE.
