  • Push to Get Santorum Out Shows Romney’s Weakness

    The Romney campaign’s phony delegate counts and establishment Republican calls for Rick Santorum to end his campaign, and allow Mitt Romney to claim the Republican presidential nomination without a majority of the delegates, expose the fatal weakness of the case for the Romney nomination. Romney is far from having a commanding lead in delegates, and Romney is not “over half way there” as his camp and their establishment GOP allies claim. If the Republican National Committee rules are correctly applied, and the delegates elected by local caucuses in states the mainstream media has stopped following are allocated, Romney has more...
  • Top Earners Pay Higher Tax Rates Even Without Buffett Rule [Obama Lies in Florida Today!]

    President Barack Obama is promoting a "Buffett rule" setting a minimum tax rate for top earners to ensure they pay a higher percentage of their income than middle- class families. For the most part,they already do. The average tax rate, including payroll taxes, for the middle 20 percent of U.S. families will be 15.9 percent in 2015, according to an estimate by the Tax Policy Center, a nonpartisan research group in Washington. Of the 217,000 households that would be affected by the Buffett rule, 4,000 will have incomes exceeding $1 million and tax rates lower than 15 percent, under slightly...

    Inviting Bill Clinton on campaign trail carries risk, reward for ObamaBy Josh Lederman - 04/09/12 05:25 AM ET President Clinton is willing to do whatever he can to get President Obama reelected, according to his former aides. It’s just a matter of whether Obama wants the help. Bringing Clinton on the campaign trail could do wonders for Obama’s appeal among disenfranchised blue-collar voters and reluctant donors, strategists say. But it could also pose risks for Obama, who could be overshadowed by the effusive former president. “President Obama would be wise [to use him], and I’m sure he would welcome President...

    If it isn’t evident already, it should be- Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign is going to be pretty straightforward, which is to say that his campaign intends to summon an epic public relations tsunami that spews as much misinformation and half truths as widely as possible in hopes that 50.1% of voters won’t be smart enough to figure it all out.

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The U.S. Navy said Monday it has deployed a second aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf region amid rising tensions with Iran over its disputed nuclear program. The deployment of the nuclear-powered USS Enterprise along with the Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group marks one of the few times the Navy has had two aircraft carriers operating in waters near the Persian Gulf, said Cmdr. Amy Derrick-Frost of the Bahrain-based 5th Fleet. The two carriers will support the American military operations in Afghanistan and anti-piracy efforts off Somalia's coast and in the Gulf of Aden,...

    If you haven’t been reading this blog regularly, you may have been shocked by Newt’s confession today on Fox News Sunday: “Unfortunately, our guys tried to match Romney,” Gingrich said of the Florida match-up. “It turned out, we didn’t have anything like his capacity to raise money.” Gingrich said he has a little less than $4.5 million in campaign debt, and he’s operating on a shoestring budget. I was there when it happened, although nobody realized it at the time, and it took another seven weeks to learn the truth. On Feb. 21, the day after his January FEC report...

    While sitting in service, I was jarred by a verse that we read about unleavened bread. It covered both foreign and "Native-born". Exodus 12:19 For seven days no yeast is to be found in your houses. And anyone, whether foreigner or native-born, who eats anything with yeast in it must be cut off from the community of Israel. hmm, so this whole natural born stuff isn't some uniquely American "racists" thing that our founders invented? Recognition of native or natural born is something people of other nations and people have always been concerned with. Why? Anyway, I thought it was...

    Obama: A brand in search of a sloganBy DONOVAN SLACK | 4/7/12 7:00 PM EDT Everyone knows what Barack Obama’s campaign slogan was in 2008. No one seems to know what it will be for 2012. The White House has been cycling through catchphrases since announcing his reelection bid a year ago: Winning the Future, We Can’t Wait, An America Built to Last, An Economy Built to Last, A Fair Shot. They seem to be looking for one to resonate — and the constant unveiling of new ones suggests that so far, none of them have. To communications experts, the...
  • DHS To Grant Illegal Aliens “Unlawful Presence Waivers”

    In its quest to implement stealth amnesty, the Obama Administration is working behind the scenes to halt the deportation of certain illegal immigrants by granting them “unlawful presence waivers.” The new measure would apply to illegal aliens who are relatives of American citizens. Here is how it would work, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announcement posted in today’s Federal Register, the daily journal of the U.S. government; the agency will grant “unlawful presence waivers” to illegal aliens who can prove they have a relative that’s a U.S. citizen. Currently such aliens must return to their native country...

    Where is Romney at? Romney - being the presumptive GOP frontrunner/nominee - needs to go to or organize at least 2 pro-Walker rallies in April and slate a few (2-3) of them in May: getting more pro-Walker momentum and maintaining it is crucial, and Romney is supposedly going to be the nominee... Who else to stand with Walker right now? Romney going up to Wisconsin from Pennsylvania a few times in April (and May) won't take much time or effort and Romney can quickly go back to Pennsylvania in April after the rallies/fundraisers. Gov. Walker (R) is facing a recall,...

And as much as I hate to credit the MSM, and particularly O'Donnell, I cannot find anything in his rant that is inaccurate, other than the number of wives Joseph Smith claimed. O'Donnell says 48, but I believe the most consistent number put forward by historians is 27. On the other hand, Brigham Young claimed 56 wives, so O'Donnell is certainly within range.

    Once teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and irrelevance, the Republican National Committee has raised more than $110 million over the past 15 months and retired more than half its debt, accumulating large cash reserves that could give Mitt Romney a critical boost later this spring as he intensifies his campaign against President Obama. With the divisive and drawn-out Republican primary season moving toward a close, the committee reported more money in the bank at the start of last month than the Democratic National Committee, which raised about $137 million during the same period but also spent far more.

    Weak jobs report could spell trouble for Obama's reelection bidBy Vicki Needham - 04/06/12 01:48 PM ET Federal Reserve officials have expressed concern that the strong job growth seen earlier this year was an illusion. The weaker-than-expected jobs figures released on Friday could spell trouble for President Obama’s reelection bid. The Labor Department reported that the economy added 120,000 new jobs in March, falling well short of the more than 200,000 that had been expected. The unemployment rate dropped from 8.3 percent to 8.2 percent, but that decline came mostly from people giving up on their job searches. Whether the...
