    SCARY THOUGHT: Did “Project Orca” Cost Romney the Election by Diverting Resources to Failing Computer Program? One of the big differences between Democrats and Republicans is that when Republicans lose an election, the knives come out and they eat their own. We’ll be seeing this for the next few years — much like we did after the McCain campaign — with Cocktail Party GOP operatives lashing out at various members of the Romney staff, blaming them for the loss in order to elevate themselves and get exposure for their own careers on tee-vee. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s campaign manager, is a...

    Senior intelligence, State Department and FBI officials can expect to be grilled next week as congressional hearings resume on the terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya that killed four Americans. Lawmakers want answers to many outstanding questions surrounding the September 11 armed assault on the diplomatic facility and a CIA annex in Benghazi. Specifically, they want to know who was responsible, whether it was planned, the intelligence reporting on the threat to Libya prior the attack, and whether security was adequate. The Senate Intelligence Committee will conduct a closed-door hearing on November 15. Scheduled witnesses include Director...

    a former oil executive who was made a bishop just over a year ago, will be the next leader of the Church of England, Downing Street confirmed on Friday morning. A press conference at Lambeth Palace took place to announce that the 56-year-old bishop of Durham will be the 105th man to sit on the throne of Saint Augustine, succeeding Rowan Williams. Welby will be enthroned as archbishop of Canterbury in Canterbury Cathedral on 21 March 2013. He said: "To be nominated to this post is both astonishing and exciting. It is something I never expected, and the last few...
  • Supreme Court to consider rolling back minority protections in Voting Rights Act

    The Supreme Court said Friday that it will consider whether laws designed to protect minority voters are unconstitutional. The announcement comes just days after an election that demonstrated the increasing electoral clout of black and Hispanic voters, who helped propel President Obama to a second term. It's against that backdrop that the court will consider rolling back part of the Voting Rights Act, first passed in 1965, to prevent states from disenfranchising minorities. Specifically, the justices will hear a challenge to the section of the Voting Rights Act that requires certain states with a history of discrimination to get permission...

    Inviting the Latino movement into your political party is like inviting the Jihadists in...its like picking up a live grenade!! If you look inside the Latino movement, you will find a fire-brand of anti-American and anti-white venom. It is their intent to take over this country for themselves. Check out the National Council of La Raza and key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push...

    Aside from retaining the House, this is probably the best news to come out of election day. Entitlement reform is coming, one way or another. And judging by the exit polls among seniors, it's not nearly as politically radioactive as the left would have you believe: Exit polling in 2008 indicated that John McCain and running mate Sarah Palin won by a margin of 8 percentage points among Florida seniors (53 to 45 percent). Exit polling in 2012 indicates that Romney-Ryan more than doubled that margin — to 17 points (58 to 41 percent). Romney’s other biggest gains in the...

    CIA Director David Petraeus today submitted his letter of resignation to President Obama. The move was announced in a statement by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. The excuse he has cited is an extra-marital affair. I’m not buying it. The timing just before some of the the most serious Congressional hearings of our time, (the Benghazi hearings) next week, is more than intriguing.

    Many things went wrong with Romney's campaign for president, but one of the biggest was the epic failure of the campaign's big-data app for getting out the vote, called Orca. When the campaign needed it most, Orca was beached. Politico has an excellent summary of the problems it says that Orca had. Among them were that the Romney campaign kept it secret and didn't beta-test it before it was rolled out on Election Day. That meant that the people who it was designed for -- the thousands of volunteers across the country -- didn't have a chance to learn how...

    AP's already picked through the gruesome national exit polling from Tuesday. I'd like to highlight one additional piece of data that is especially interesting: According to CNN's figures, Mitt Romney actually won white Millenials (18-29 year olds) by seven points, 51-44, despite losing the broader demographic by 23 points. (McCain lost young voters by 35 points in 2008). Virtually all of Romney's gains within this age bracket came from young whites. He got absolutely demolished by young people of color; losing young Hispanics by 51 points, and young blacks by 83 points. The specific age breakdown of Asian voters isn't...

(As an aside, none of these compare with naming your terrorist group the Moro Independent Liberation Front or MILF. Don’t they have porn in the Philippines?)

    BENGHAZI, Libya -- Even before the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, diplomats from other nations and Libyan security officials had questioned the wisdom of a U.S. decision to rely primarily on members of a local militia to protect its compound here. Diplomats here told McClatchy that while it’s customary to depend on local forces to protect diplomatic missions, only the United States of the 10 or so foreign missions here allowed the local militia to be the first line of defense. The others said they instead depended on...

    BATON ROUGE — After carrying nearly 80 percent of the vote in an expanded district and with close to $2 million still in the bank, U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy has become slightly more candid about potentially challenging Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu. “What American who loves their country wouldn't want to run for the U.S. Senate? And we certainly need some help in the Senate,” said Cassidy, R-Baton Rouge. Cassidy first ran for office in 2006, transforming a state Senate seat into a successful congressional bid in the span of 23 months. He said the U.S. Senate could possibly be his...
  • Demographics haven't killed the GOP -- yet

    11/09/2012 12:57:16 PM PST · by SeekAndFind · 21 replies
    President Obama's re-election has triggered panic in some GOP circles. Obama was able to win not just once, when Americans were reacting against the Bush era, but a second time, with a weak economy and a vulnerable record. America, the alarmists say, has fundamentally shifted so much that Republicans can no longer win national elections. This thesis merits serious consideration. Especially relevant is the fact that Mitt Romney's dismal performance among the growing Hispanic demographic made the race essentially unwinnable. That having been said, Republicans' demise may not be at hand just yet. In the short and medium-term, it is...

    Each presidential cycle gets shrouded in the penultimate question, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” In Oliver Stone’s new book — “The Untold History of the United States” — the filmmaker, along with historian Peter Kuznick, argues that, “The country Obama inherited was indeed in shambles, but Obama took a bad situation and, in certain ways, made it worse.” Much of Stone and Kuznick’s book focuses on the threats posed by government secrecy and militarism throughout history and, in an interview with POLITICO Friday, Stone said that things aren’t getting better.

He accused Western countries of aiming to turn him into their next enemy.

    Newly re-elected President Barack Obama offered on Friday to deal with Republicans to avert a looming U.S. fiscal calamity but insisted a tax increase for the very rich must be part of the bargain. Obama reminded Republicans that his approach to avoiding steep tax hikes and spending cuts due in January, which could trigger another recession, had just won the backing of Americans at the polls. He spoke just hours after John Boehner, the Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, had repeated his party's commitment not to raise anyone's tax rates as part of a deal to address the...

    (CNSNews.com) – A record 70.4 million people were enrolled in the Medicaid health care program for the poor in fiscal year 2011, according to government figures provided to CNSNews.com. That figure equals about 22 percent of the population, which means there was one person on Medicaid for every 5 Americans in 2011. The record number of Medicaid enrollees in 2011 – the earliest year for which figures are available – is a count of all persons enrolled in Medicaid for any part of that year, providing the fullest and most accurate count of the size of the entitlement program.

    President Obama, claiming his election "majority" was a vindication of his fiscal policy, held firm Friday to his intention to include tax hikes for America's top earners in any negotiations with Congress to pull the nation back from the so-called "fiscal cliff." The president, in his first remarks from Washington since winning a second term, urged officials to "get to work" on the issue as he invited congressional leaders to the White House next week. He said he's open to "compromise," but did not appear to budge on what has been a central disagreement over the last two years --...

    On Wednesday, Greta put up a poll asking her readers who they thought, at this moment, was the leader of the Republican Party. Readers responded by choosing Sarah Palin by an overwhelming margin over the rest of the field. Reading the comments it’s pretty plain that many feel Sarah could have fared far better against President Obama than Governor Mitt Romney did. Judging how well Sarah’s hand picked candidates for office did, vs how those in the standard GOP mold under-performed, it’s not much of a stretch to think Sarah herself would have done well and likely led the party...

As of September 14 Obama had tweeted more about Beyonce and Jay Z than he had about Benghazi. Just one of President Barack Obama’s last 47 tweets from his official campaign account mentioned the crisis unfolding in the Middle East or the four Americans who lost their lives in a fiery attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Tuesday. Among the tweets sent out by Obama’s Twitter account included a chance to win tickets to an Obama event...

    Nearly two-thirds of employers expect to see a cost hike in their health plans when the Affordable Care Act goes into effect in 2014, according to new data from the consulting firm Mercer. Employers in the restaurant and retail industries -- those with a large number of hourly wage workers who traditionally had minimal or no health insurance -- are more likely than other companies to drop their health plans or cut worker's hours in order to maintain their already slim profit margins. According to a Mercer survey of 1,203 employers, nearly half of retail and hospitality employers expect the...

    Obama used Sandy to win. Chris Matthews thanked Sandy for her help. Now the aftermath of Sandy remains and Obama is nowhere to be found. Guess Sandy was a one night stand for Barry.

    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) says the premise that cutting taxes will result in greater economic growth is “a Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale”. At the Nov. 8th Christian Science Monitor Breakfast in Washington, Schumer praised House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on the tone of his recent remarks about working with the president on debt reduction...

Lean on our governors and state legislatures to resist the feds at every turn. Build on our majority in 2014!! Retake the senate in 2014 and kick the traitor Harry Reid to the curb!! Be better prepared in 2016!! We must run a...

    In October, we published two articles suggesting that there might be a stock market panic in October.  We were early.  Whether the delay in the potential market panic was due to organic reasons, such as the excitement leading up to the November election, or some other factor is beyond the scope of this article. On Thursday, November 8,  the lower trendline of the Orthodox Broadening Top was breached.  In addition, The Dow, Wilshire 5000, Nasdaq, Russell 2000, and S&P 500 all closed beneath their respective 200-day moving averages.  You might say that the stock market panic button is about to...

  • U.S. Employment Discrimination Law Does Not Include Party Affiliation

    Obama wanted his voters to seek revenge. What is fair for their side should be fair for our side. The U.S. Employment Discrimination Law covers, Race, Sex, Pregnancy, Religion, National Origin, Disability, Age, Military Affiliation, Bankruptcy, Genetic Info, and Citizenship. It does not cover party affiliation. If you have a business and you don't want any commie Democrats working for you, you should have the right to advertise "Democrats Need Not Apply". And if they lie to get hired, you should have the right to fire them at the first sign that they are a liberal Democrat.
