    Obama the Avatar? Does this effect the Oscars? Our congressional leaders had the guts to confront this issue at the recent Health Care Summit.

    American spectator ^ | 11/17/11 | By Christopher Orlet
    Ever since I moved to the inner city one thing has puzzled me more than any other, and that is how my low-income neighbors get by. Assuming they aren't doing anything illegal, how do they afford their homes, their meals, their gadgets, their cars? Few seem to work, even part time, for they are home in the morning when I leave for work, home if I stop by for lunch, and home when I return in the evening. They can't work the graveyard shift, for they keep me up half the night with their raucous music. I am left to...

    The College Football Czar Week 11 Week ten in review: For the second time this season, the College Football Czar must issue a retraction. A few dozen more, and he may find himself writing for the New York Times. Last week, he wrote that Air Force was looking to clinch the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy against Army, when in fact, they were merely trying to stay in contention for it, having lost to Navy in overtime earlier this season. Army’s 41-21 shocker over the AFA means that possession of the trophy will be decided in the season-ending Army-Navy game. All the undefeated...

    We lost. We the People got our teeth kicked down our throat. I know that sounds harsh, but let's face it fellow Republicans, we're members of a party that failed to defeat a racist, dog-eating, homosexual agenda pushing piece of human garbage who isn't qualified to be a cashier at 7-11, let alone be President of the United States. We, the party of strong economies and national defense, failed as a party to dislodge an economically illiterate man who hates the US military with a passion. In short, this election was an absolute train wreck that may very well destroy...

    WASHINGTON, DC – Sources confirmed today that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Governor Mitt Romney.

    It has been confirmed that Iranian jets opened fire on an unmanned U.S.drone last week raising fresh concerns within the Obama administration about Iranian military aggression. A Predator drone operating off the coast of Kuwait, in international waters, was fired upon by two Su-25 Iranian fighter planes said George Little, the Pentagon press secretary. The incident occurred on November 1st at 4.15 a.m. eastern time and wasn't revealed publicly because the drone was on a classified mission.

    Mark Levin responds to calls from conservative commentators, like Charles Krauthammer, to grant amnesty to illegal immigration in order to entice Hispanics to vote Republican. Levin explains why this won't work and what a slippery slope amnesty would be. (Mark Levin Show, November 8, 2012) MARK LEVIN: You know, I've always known this, but I'm coming to the conclusion yet again that Republican leaders are really stupid people. And I'm coming to the conclusion that are an awful lot of stupid people posing as commentators on cable TV. I mean, where do these people come from? Now, this immigration issue....

    What could be worse than Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense? Another post-racial RINO (Republican in name only) with an antipathy for Israel: Yiddish speaking former Shabbos goy Colin Powell. One new name that has become a topic of speculation on military listservs and among Democratic national security hands in recent days is that of retired four-star Gen. Colin Powell. The moderate Republican former Secretary of State, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and National Security Adviser to Ronald Reagan post-Iran Contra famously endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008. Powell has consulted with Obama on Iraq and Afghanistan...

    As if she half-expected conformity, the Grio's managing editor Joy-Ann Reid expressed doubt on MSNBC's Now with Alex Wagner that conservatives will ever be enlightened enough to move enough towards the center to win an election. Diversifying the messengers beyond white men and women simply isn't good enough to Reid, who condescendingly described Black and Hispanic Republicans as "window dressing" and "decoration": [video below, MP3 audio here ]

    Christie — a potential 2016 White House contender — said he worked harder than just about every other Republican to elect Romney, and that his recent praise of Obama had nothing to with Romney’s loss. “My activity with President Obama was just another chapter in the leadership I’ve tried to show in this state, which is people care more about getting things done than they care about partisanship,” he said Wednesday. “And I’m going to continue to conduct myself that way.”

    President Obama's second term may include some cabinet reshuffling, and guess who might become Secretary of Defense.... Yes, Chuck Hagel. Many believe that current Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is only going to stay on as long as he has to, and sources say candidates for replacing him are already being discussed. Chuck Hagel, former Republican senator from Nebraska and good friend of the President’s, is being mentioned as a top candidate according to Politico. But the prospect of Hagel in such a high-level position would be a cause for concern for the state of Israel seeing as he has a...

    Deadly Ebola & Lassa Viruses May Be More Common Than Thought Wynne Parry, LiveScience Contributor Date: 08 November 2012 Time: 02:01 PM ETEbola and Lassa are hemorrhagic fevers, made memorable by the horrific symptoms that can accompany them. First identified about four decades ago, these killer viruses can cause their victims to bleed both internally and from the mucosal membranes of the eyes, nose and elsewhere. A severe infection can also produce neurological problems, including tremors and brain swelling. But mounting evidence indicates these terrifying diseases, which occur in Africa, may not be the terrifying new arrivals — called emerging...

    As the national vote total began to solidify last night, one question on the minds of Republicans was: Where are the missing voters? Last night it looked like Mitt Romney had received something like 10 to 15 percent fewer votes than John McCain had in 2008, even though his percentage of the overall vote was at least two points higher. What did this mean? Where did the voters go? They didn’t go to Barack Obama, because exit polls suggested he had basically turned out the same demographic support he had four years ago. So where are they? Did this suggest...

    With conservatives across the country concerned about a rumored Republican cave-in in Washington, D.C. over tax policy, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is speaking out. Read his lips: no tax hikes. McConnell said in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News: One issue I’ve never been conflicted about is taxes. I wasn’t sent to Washington to raise anybody’s taxes to pay for more wasteful spending and this election doesn’t change my principles. This election was a disappointment, without doubt, but let’s be clear about something: the House is still run by Republicans, and Republicans still maintain a robust minority in...

    Seven members of SEAL Team Six have been punished for supporting development of a video game released last month, according to a U.S. military official. The SEALs worked as paid consultants for Electronic Arts, the company that made "Medal of Honor Warfighter." They received letters of reprimand and forfeited half of their pay for two months. The SEALs do not face jail time. The official did not say what, if any, information the SEALs revealed by participating in the video game's development. However, a written statement from Deputy Commander of Naval Special Warfare, Rear Admiral Garry Bonelli, indicates this is...

    Syndicated radio host and Ohio native Bill Cunningham expresses his disappointment in Tuesday's victory for Obama on tonight's broadcast of FOX News' "Hannity." "I felt as if something crawled inside my body and died. Tuesday night, I was lower than whale dung in the Mariana trench. Man, I talked with you. I was done. But today and last night, I said, 'You know what? We're not wrong. We didn't do it. The messenger wasn't the best, the message wasn't the best.' And I think that there were millions of moderates in Ohio, Michigan, Virginia, who kind of sat this one...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A senior defense official says seven members of the secretive Navy SEAL Team 6, including one involved in the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, have been punished for allegedly disclosing classified information. The official, who discussed the matter on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the case, says the seven received what the military calls "nonjudicial" punishment on Wednesday. They are alleged to have provided the information to the maker of a video game.

    Liberal Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen caricatured the Republican Party's base on Thursday's CBS This Morning. Hiaasen asserted that President Obama won Florida on Tuesday because Mitt Romney's campaign didn't appeal to "people who vote who are not old/middle-aged, angry white guys."
