  • Planned Parenthood info for teens: It’s great to be a “slut”

    “There’s tons of ways that people define ‘slut.’ Most, though, are f’d up.” That’s the lead in for an MTV video targeting teens and tweens on Planned Parenthood’s Info for Teens Facebook page. This denigrating instructional video takes place in a classroom setting and encourages young girls to become promiscuous and emphasizes that others should respect them because, as sluts, they are “confident in their sexuality.” Francisco, the young, attractive sex “Savage U” sex instructor, stands in front of a chalkboard showing one large stick figure and many small ones. He says, “Let’s say this guy [the big one] has...
  • Why Mitt Romney Lost (NewsMax's Christopher Ruddy Blames the Choice of Paul Ryan was one factor)

    With the 2012 election results in, there are no short- or even medium-term "silver linings" for Republicans. SNIP SNIP On to why our pilot Mitt Romney and his plan were so flawed. 1. Paul Ryan. Romney's choice of Ryan was almost inexplicable. A good conservative, Ryan was unqualified for the job of vice president, and therefore the job of president. A sitting member of Congress, he held no leadership position on the Hill. Romney's VP selection was the most important one of his campaign, and by it he telegraphed his lack of political wisdom to the nation. With his VP...

    Wait until next year -- 2016, that is. That’s what disappointed Republican spinners kept saying Tuesday night as they watched Mitt Romney’s hopes crash and burn in swing state after swing state. How many times did I hear a Republican talk about how their party’s deep bench of future all-stars will return it to power in Washington in four years? But all the Ryans, Rubios, Bushes, Haleys and Christies in America can’t put the GOP -- or the country -- back together again. The GOP is a wreck -- and not just in California, where the party’s registration is now...

    Back in March, we heard Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) tell Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”At the time, news outlets reported this as if Obama did not realize he was being recorded, yet there were cameras and microphones all over the place recording every second. Obama had to know the world could hear his words, but I am certain he did not care. When I heard those words, I knew the fix was in, although I still hoped I would be wrong. Obama knew he would “win”...
  • What Major Demographic Shift? (Take a Closer Look at the Election 2012 Numbers)

    American Thinker ^ | 11/08/2012 | Tara Servatius
    Conservatives need to take a collective breath and look closer at the numbers before they buy into the idea that GOP nominee Mitt Romney's defeat was due to some kind of national demographic shift that now makes Democrat presidential candidates' armor impenetrable. Before you give in to the hysteria, here are a few things to keep in mind. First, Barack Obama's re-election showing was actually pretty unimpressive for a guy whose philosophies voters have supposedly adopted. As of this writing on Wednesday, Obama's vote total stood at an unimpressive 60,119,958. That's about what John Kerry got in 2004 (59,028,444). President...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is calling for the creation of a third political party — saying it is clear to him that neither major political party is willing to address the nation’s economic problems. “We need a third party to save this country,” Cain told American Family Radio host Bryan Fischer. “This country is in trouble and it is clear that neither party — is going to fix the problems we face.” Cain agreed with Fischer’s assessment that conservatives are growing tired of being ignored by Republican party leadership — and that many believe the GOP no longer...

Let me share what I experienced last night in Stuttgart, and this may be enlightening. Right now, we have more than four years of Obama's crew staring us in the face. Last night, I spoke (in German) on behalf of Republicans Abroad at the (State Parliament) Landtag in Stuttgart's US Election Night Party. It was a 90 minute podium discussion. In the crowd there were 800 ppl (German 2/3 and American 1/3) there with 798 of...

    Miami Herald ^ | November 6, 2012 | ELINOR J. BRECHER
    Voters in Miami-Dade overwhelmingly supported a measure that could save the lives of more than 20,000 cats and dogs a year, and set the county on a path to achieve its “no kill’’ goal for the Animal Services Department. The straw-vote victory on a ballot question to support a small property-tax increase for animal welfare now puts the issue in the hands of the Miami-Dade County Commission. Commissioners wanted to see whether the public favored the issue in principle, and how enthusiastically. As of late Tuesday, with 627 of the county’s 829 precincts reporting, voters said yes to the Pets’...

    Updated December 21, 2004 Florida Election Stolen Computer Programmer Reveals Scheme to Steal 2000 Vote By Christopher Bollyn TITUSVILLE, Florida—While the mainstream media has focused on a sensational murder trial in California and the political crisis that followed the flawed elections in Ukraine, it has ignored a huge domestic story about the computer programmer who has come forward and explained how he had written computer code to steal elections in Florida. An affidavit signed by the programmer, Clinton Curtis, in Prince George’s County, Md., on Dec. 6, 2004, names the individuals involved in a computer vote fraud scheme that he...

    Weekly Standard ^ | November 7, 2012 | Jeffrey H. Anderson
    The Republican party’s brutal defeat in yesterday’s presidential and Senate races offers at least one clear, abiding lesson: Republicans can’t win without making their case. For all of the worthiness of his campaign, which (to his great credit) was so much more honorable, classy, truthful, and responsible than the president’s — and the extraordinary effort that he devoted to it after so many other Republicans refused to enter the contest during their nation’s time of need — the unfortunate fact is that Mitt Romney too often didn’t prosecute the case. He didn’t really make the case on Obamacare (and especially...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 11-8-12 | ALAN M. DERSHOWITZ
    Let us all now join together in helping Obama in his efforts to assure Israel’s security. President Barack Obama won reelection by a significant majority of the electoral college. The Jewish, pro-Israel Democratic vote helped him in Florida, Ohio and even Virginia, but he might have won at least some of those battleground states without Jewish support. Even those Jews who berated Democrats like me for supporting President Obama’s reelection, must now realize that our support for the president will be good for Israel over the next four years. Recall what former Secretary of State James Baker, who served under...

    A man sprung into action when burglars broke into his Fair Oaks home early Wednesday morning, killing one of them. The shooting happened on Laurel Oak Way near the Madison Avenue and Dewey Drive intersection. The man in his 60′s first shot one suspect, who made his way to a hospital and was later arrested. The man also shot a second suspect in his 30′s, who he found in the doorway of a bedroom. That person died in the home. The homeowner was not injured and ran out of his home after shooting the burglars to find help. Investigators have...

    Now that we have lost the election of 2012, where our champion, a third-rate imitation of Ronald Reagan, without either his charm or his principles, who believed in absolutely nothing except being the best salesman he could be; let's pause to reflect on all the things we lost out on through his defeat. When we lose something, a relationship or a job, the grief comes from what we thought we had and what we imagined it was, not from what it truly was. Perspective means getting a true sense of what we had and what we never had to begin...

    The first day of the "next 4 years" is starting in a very auspicious fashion. First, the market crashes. Then, a major blue chip company, Boeing, just announced it would cut 30% of management jobs from 2010 levels. And finally, the US Treasury just added $24 billion in debt, or enough to fund Greece for over one year, sending the total debt load (the US is now at 103% debt/GDP) ever closer to the debt ceiling breaching $16.4 trillion. But don't worry: over the next 4 years, the US government will add another $6-8 trillion in debt, so those who...

    (Senator-elect Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) on election night.) (CNSNews.com) – Voters in Wisconsin sent Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) to the U.S. Senate on Tuesday– making her the first open lesbian to be elected to the upper chamber. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) activists say the victory was the "crown jewel" in a night of victories that voters handed homosexuals. “Tonight we have won a huge victory for Wisconsin’s middle class,” Baldwin told supporters in Madison, declaring victory. “The people's voice was heard tonight, Wisconsin, and come January, your voice will be heard in the United States Senate.” Baldwin was...

    ‘In 2008, Obama rode the energy of hope and change into the White House,” says Andrew Bouchet, former national political director for Rick Santorum. “This year, he had no energy but he had spent the intervening years building an awesome Machine. Last night, he rode the Machine back into the White House.” The Machine indeed won. “Starting months ago, Democrats began spending $350 million building a get-out-the-vote infrastructure that swamped us,” Ed Rollins, who served as campaign manager for Ronald Reagan’s 1984 reelection bid, told me yesterday. “Then they demonized Romney in the swing states, and by the time he...
