    I may have awakened him. The late James Jesus Angleton, once the chief of CIA counterintelligence, sounded kinda groggy to me after I got him–loud and clear!–on my famously untrustworthy ouija board. Of course I have no idea whether he gets to sleep at all. I don’t quite know exactly “where” he is, after all, and he doesn’t answer direct questions on the subject. Anyway, there he was, and I started right in. ML: So what am I supposed to think about Petraeus? JJA: That you’re living in a country where espionage is rampant. ML: Huh? JJA: Have you read...
  • Stop talking about the Hispanics for a moment — what about Asian-Americans?

    Apart from some fatuous self-congratulation from Asian-American liberals, there has been very little discussion of the 73-26 Asian-American margin of support for President Obama in last Tuesday’s election. That’s slightly smaller than the highest estimate of Latino support for Obama, at 75-23. Asian-Americans are a small minority now but their numbers are growing rapidly. Most conservatives consider Asian-Americans poster-children for the American model of self-motivated success. The facts bear this out. The Pew Research Center reported last July: Asian Americans are the highest-income, best-educated and fastest-growing racial group in the United States. They are more satisfied than the general...
  • No charges against owner of gun that Glynn County 2nd-grader brought to school(GA)

    BRUNSWICK, GA. | No charges will be filed against the owner of a handgun that an 8-year-old boy brought to C.B. Greer Elementary School last week, said Rodney Ellis, chief of the Glynn County school system’s police force. School police investigator Ricky Hilburn determined that the .25-caliber pistol belonged to a close friend of the child’s family and that the boy found the gun while visiting the elderly man, Ellis said. The man was in another part of the house and was unaware the second-grade student was looking around, Ellis said. The boy found the gun in a shoebox stored...

    VATICAN CITY (AP) -- The Vatican is digging in after gay marriage initiatives scored big wins this week in the U.S. and Europe, vowing to never stop insisting that marriage can only be between a man and a woman. In a front-page article in Saturday's Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, the Holy See sought to frame itself as the lone voice of courage in opposing initiatives to give same-sex couples legal recognition. In a separate Vatican Radio editorial, the pope's spokesman asked sarcastically why gay marriage proponents don't now push for legal recognition for polygamous couples as well. Catholic teaching holds...

    By Michael, on November 9th, 2012 The victory by Barack Obama on election night has resulted in a huge wave of firings and layoffs all over America. A large number of businesses seem to have suddenly shifted into panic mode. The number of layoff announcements that we have seen in the last 48 hours has been absolutely shocking. So why is this happening? Well, the truth is that the federal government is absolutely suffocating small businesses all over America with rules, regulations and taxes. If you have never tried to run a small business, then you have no idea...

    Now the glory of the God of Israel went up from above the cherubim, where it had been, and moved to the threshold of the temple. Then the Lord called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side and said to him, “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.” As I listened, he said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion. Slaughter old men,...

    For the first time since the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Israeli forces on Sunday fired over the country’s northern border to Syria as a warning after a mortar shell fired from Syrian territory exploded in the Golan Heights, officials say. Israeli newspaper Ynet reported the Israeli Defense Forces Artillery Corps fired at a post in Syria in response. On Thursday, three Syrian mortar shells struck in and around an Israeli village in the Golan Heights. The IDF vowed in a statement, “Further attacks [from Syria] will illicit a vigorous response,” the Jerusalem Post reported. A longer statement posted on the...

    If the FBI was investigating a "personal tradgedy"for a number of months.. Does the "personal tradgedy" not raise a severe concern of blackmail potential for the head of Intellegence. And if the investigation was ongoing by the FBI, who do they report to? Holder? So Holder did not know about this "personal tradgedy"and did not notify the Whitehouse ....UNTIL 3 days after the election? And Chris Wallace will not even ask about it? he calls it a "persoanl tradgedy" We could all be killed with people this stupid asking questions.

  • Boehner Tells House G.O.P. to Fall in Line

    WASHINGTON — On a conference call with House Republicans a day after the party’s electoral battering last week, Speaker John A. Boehner dished out some bitter medicine, and for the first time in the 112th Congress, most members took their dose. Their party lost, badly, Mr. Boehner said, and while Republicans would still control the House and would continue to staunchly oppose tax rate increases as Congress grapples with the impending fiscal battle, they had to avoid the nasty showdowns that marked so much of the last two years. Members on the call, subdued and dark, murmured words of support...

    November 11, 2012 What should the Republican Party do now? That’s the post-election question. Yet, not being a Republican, I figure I can only answer this question: What should the Republican Party not do? Before the election, I would have answered, “Talk about ‘legitimate rape.’” Even now I suggest a short course for GOP candidates about rape, with perhaps a refresher on basic biology. I’m serious. And I’m pro-life. Now, after the election, an object lesson in what not to do rears its ugly head in the last place one would expect a problem: Arkansas. Last Tuesday, Arkansas Republicans gained...

    Political Realities ^ | 11/11/12 | LD Jackson
    Take a look at the title of this blog. It is called Political Realities for a reason and I take the tag line very seriously. Because of that, I want to remind us all of a certain political reality that will not be going away. President Obama has won a second term. He will be living in the White House for another four years. We need to come to terms with that reality and not mope around. And trust me, I have been as guilty as anyone of moping around because of the defeat we have suffered. What will four...
  • The Real Reason Obama Got Elected ("Freebie" Nation)

    fox news ^ | 11/8/2012 | Gerri Willis
    Here’s an interesting plot twister; Republicans made the assumption, incorrectly as it turns out, that voters in states with high-unemployment would kick the bums out. That is, that they’d vote Obama out of office and try to find someone who could solve the jobs problem in this country. Turns out, the opposite has happened. Voters in high-unemployment states actually like the president, and the reason is obvious; the Federal Government is paying the jobless, extending unemployment benefits, food stamps, and even underwriting disability payments from Social Security. Think we’re different from the Europeans? Think again. The proportion of Greek men...

    Red State ^ | 11-9-2012 | Daniel Horowitz
    Yesterday, Diane Sawyer asked John Boehner in an interview if he planned to push for repeal of Obamacare. He responded that “the election changes that” and “Obamacare is the law of the land.” No, Mr. Boehner, the Constitution is the law of the Republic. In April 2011, following the failure of Republicans to defund Obamacare during the first budget battle, I wrote the following at Red State: If it is reckless to shut down the government over Obamacare, then there is nothing in the budget worth fighting for. Due to the degree of entrenchment of the existing entitlement, even Paul...

    Along with Conservatives, every Liberal that voted for Obama will be seeing tax hikes, increased insurance premiums, layoffs, much higher gasoline and energy prices, higher food prices, fewer freedoms, more government intrusion, etc. under a free-wheeling second Obama term. When I hear someone whine about any of the above my first question will be: Did you vote for Obama. If the answer is yes, then I will remind them that this is the nightmare they voted for.Pray for America. God Bless our veterans.
