    Taliban terrorist insurgents told newly re-elected President Barack Obama on Wednesday to admit that the United States has lost the war in Afghanistan and to act accordingly by pulling its troops out of the country immediately. "Obama must by now know that they have lost the war in Afghanistan," said spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid in a statement posted on the Islamists' website, as reported by AFP. "So, without further lying and delays, they should leave our sacred land and focus on their own country instead." "The American administration should stop acting like police in the world and focus on solving their...

    My friend who works at RIM in Irving, TX just called to tell me he, and 3000 others, were just laid off. The plant is closing. He says another employee told him it was because of the election. It's a sad day for this man as he was already extremely depressed that Romney lost. Now to lose his job?

    My brother, I know how disturbing these events are to you. But, please remember that the King we recognize is forever King. I know I have been publicly rather neutral, some may say ambivalent and in some respects, that judgement may be accurate. But I have been deeply interested as of late in looking at the scriptural instances of a nation pulled in opposing directions. I have spent the last few weeks looking at Numbers 11 and have drawn several conclusions. First, the kind of dissent and dissatisfaction we are seeing in culture begins with all unbelievers. They all have...
  • Rasmussen Reports polls get the election really, really wrong

    For the past year conservatives have put their trust in one pollster and one pollster alone. While nearly every other pollster showed President Obama leading throughout the last year’s presidential race, Rasmussen Reports consistently showed better numbers for Romney, and had Romney leading through much of the last month. Conservative pundits claimed that Rasmussen was the only pollster showing the true state of the race, even though previous studies suggested that Rasmussen’s numbers actually leaned too far to the right in previous elections. The Election Day results are now in, and Rasmussen was not only off in their projection, but...

    The GOP needs to use their one big chit in the tax negotiation. They need to demand that included in this deal is increasing the national debt limit. In return for increasing the national debt limit they need to get something tangible. Something like no tax increase. They can not accept illusions of spending cuts that will never happen. They could link the debt ceiling to the current tax code and everytime the debt limit comes up, the tax code would too.
  • Sarah Palin Tells America: Don’t Lose Heart!

    Sarah Palin told Americans, and conservatives in particular, to not lose heart following yesterday’s loss. From her Facebook page: America, don’t lose heart. This election is not an “Obama mandate,” nor is it a rejection of conservatism. Unanswered ads like this one running in blue collar swing states defined Romney early on, and the Obama media also piled on with the narrative that Romney would harm the middle class. (As I personally have witnessed, once a bell is rung by a biased media, it’s impossible to un-ring it.) Ironically, it’s Obama’s socialist policies that will destroy America’s working class as...

    To my Conservative Friends: I sat in front of my computer last night and started this post.  I clicked on "New Post", started, stopped and started again...  I froze after just 3 words and stared into a blank wall saying to myself, "What could I possibly write?"  What do I say to everyone who, like me, had such great hopes for this election.  What do I say to the people who felt, like me, that we needed Mitt Romney to win because we sincerely felt our country, our businesses, our families so desperately needed him to win. I realized that...

    Ways to handle this We lost. Despite my genuine and profound despair caused by the cold hard proof that over half the American electorate dwells in a pathological state of denial about elementary basic arithmetic and of the concepts of cause and effect, I’m trying to be optimistic right now. Trying to make myself laugh right now or else I’ll give up. I’m convinced there are productive ways we can cope with Jimmy Carter’s second term, and work to defend what’s good about this country in the near future, and I have to tell myself we’ll figure out how to...

    Count Ted Nugent a sore loser: the vocal conservative rocker went on a disgruntled Twitter tirade after President Barack Obama locked up a second term last night. "Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav a president to destroy America," Nugent wrote in the first of a storm tweets. "So Obama still demands the hardest workers provide for the nonwotkers. Shared opportunities my ass," he followed, before tweeting, "What subhuman varmint believes others must pay for their obesity booze cellphones birthcontrol abortions & lives." Calling Americans "soulless fools," Nugent lamented the "economic & spiritual suicide" of re-electing Obama....
  • Ann Coulter: Do not underestimate the power of the incumbency.

    11/07/2012 2:46:30 PM PST · by georgiegirl · 61 replies
    Ann Coulter was just on Hannity's Radio show and said something interesting. That Obama's advantage was his incumbency and voters traditionally do not unseat an incumbent president, no matter what. (examples: Clinton and W Bush). Reagan was the only Republican able to unseat the incumbent Carter in a 100 years. Her ray of sunshine was that in the coming elections of 2014 and 2016, Republicans will have a much better chance with voters (I'm paraphrasing her)...

    Today, the rest of my life will remain eternally extended in mourning for the greatest country ever to grace the otherwise sorry, misbegotten, soon to be forgotten history of human civilization as it takes a huge leap into the abyss, its inherent characteristic at self-subversion, its obsessive death-wish come to ultimate fruition. It may be God's will after all, the usurpation of His blessing, the cornucopia of divine largesse, bestowal recalled, the negation for, of, the glory, the majesty, the beneficence, that is, always be America, America's legacy, is no more. Just as God had done to Israel, removed His...

    If we want this country back we CAN get it back. People say "The demographics have tipped against us". That may be so. But let's figure out WHY. Sure there is a huge welfare state and it is only getting bigger. BUT. Let me ask you this question. How many states passed Gay Marriage laws yesterday? Maryland, Maine and Washington. With many more to come in future elections right? How much of the US Population do gays make up? Last I heard it was like 3 to 4 percent. 3 to 4 percent of the population and they're well on...
