  • The Ultimate Appeal to Persuade Fellow Blacks to Stop Voting Democrat

    American Thinker ^ | 05/01/2012 | Lloyd Marcus
    Candidly, I have struggled with this for years -- how best to explain why I am a black conservative and why fellow black Americans should join me. I served on a board with an extremely bright black mom. Both of her kids, a boy and a girl, are brilliant; her son received a full scholarship to Yale. This black mom is well-read on "whiny" black liberal authors and philosophers. I am talking about the majority of black authors you see featured on mainstream TV. They sound extremely intellectual, explaining how white America is still systematically abusing blacks and why more...
  • This explains a lot about modern journalistic malpractice

    04/29/2012 9:32:13 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 7 replies
    Walter Lippmann, the "Father of Modern Journalism", is really a piece of work. I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to make the title of this post. I simply do not believe that any man who holds the following views could possibly be a journalist worth a damn. Pardon my language, but this makes me sick. Every time I read something from this guy, I have an internal revolt. In his regular column "Today and Tomorrow", on April 7th, 1933, the following is written under the title "Roosevelt's Achievement": At the beginning of last month the country was...

    The subversive network taking over America The time has long passed when we could afford to look the other way on the extent to which subversive influences — communist and jihad-oriented Islamists — have for years been worming their way into the high councils of our government.So let's say this again: When the Cold War ended, the enemies of America did not just go away. America is under attack from Communists (with both a large and small "c") and Jihadists.These two threats to America (by violent means if necessary) have philosophical differences, but they are bound together by an identical...
  • How Babies Were Left to Die: Nurse Recounts Horrors of Infanticide Practice Barack Obama Protected

    August 12, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - At the same time that the National Right to Life Committee has unearthed documents proving that Barack Obama repeatedly voted against a bill that would have protected children born alive after an attempted abortion, Illuminati Pictures has released a video of an interview with a nurse who witnessed the very practice that Obama protected while in the Illinois senate (See: http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2008/aug/08081101.html  ). Jill Stanek was a nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois in 1999 when she discovered that babies born alive after failed abortions purposely were being left to die in the "soiled...

    If Transportation Security pat downs at public venues, thousands of drones over the skies of America, and the National Security Agency's new Echelon-like listening center in Utah weren't enough to convince you that we're living in a police state, then perhaps the latest news out of Chicago will change your mind. As world leaders prepare to meet in the windy city for their annual NATO summit, U.S. federal officials are working feverishly to implement a security net so broad that it encompasses the entirety of Cook County, Illinois. While international summits are traditionally met with a larger police presence and...

    The first 3 are from today, the bonus is from yesterday. Maybe, it is a sign of desperation? I hope.First: [sucker] - I've been getting a ton of questions about the George Clooney contest -- what are the odds? Will you pick my mom? Can staff win? (For the last time, the answer's no.) Honestly, I really don't care who wins unless you're talking about Election Day. But if you're counting the hours to when the winners are picked, I won't judge -- and congrats if you're one of them. What I'm counting is how many people step up between...

    NewsMax / The Politico ^ | April 30, 2012 | Wire Staff
    Former “CBS Evening News” anchor Dan Rather says presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has a 50 percent chance of beating President Barack Obama in November. “I have no idea what kind of president [former Massachusetts] Gov. Romney will make, but I do think . . . he has a good chance of becoming president,” Rather told Politico. “President Obama is even money at best at this particular time . . . His odds right now are 50/50 in my book.” Obama performs much better campaigning than as president, said Rather, who is promoting a new book, “Rather Outspoken: My...
  • "Forward Forward" A Hitler Youth Anthem

    Youtube ^ | 5/1/2012 | vanity
    A few people have commented on the fact that Obama's 2012 campaign slogan 'Forward' has a long history in socialist and communist ideology. The most chilling and in your face example I've seen so far is from the National Socialist Hitler Youth Anthem "Forward,Forward." The themes of youth have always been a big part of Obama's campaigns, but seeing his campaign slogan being sung by actual Hitler Youth Members really brings it all together and creeps me out. As I said on Twitter, those who fail to learn from history are doomed to release it as campaign material. Forward Forward

    Go to the Constitution Party website. I don't know too much about Mr. Goode, but I will be now be seeking to find out more about him. But I do know that as with Ronald Reagan, he too was once a Democrat, switched to the Republican Party - but then went beyond that to the Constitution Party in the end. Despite not knowing too much about Goode, he can't possibly get the Cons. Party nom, and yet be worse than Romney or Obama. Given what we have seen today, with the Romney campaign saying that Romney advised the Obama administration...

    Creators Syndicate ^ | May 1, 2012 | Thomas Sowell
    A small headline in the 2nd section of the Wall Street Journal last week told a bigger story than a lot of front page banner headlines. It said, "U.S. Firms Add Jobs, but Mostly Overseas." Just as there is no free lunch, there is no free class warfare. Some people may be inspired by President Obama's talk about making "the rich" pay their undefined "fair share" of taxes, or taking away corporations' "tax breaks." But talk is not always cheap. It can be very costly to those working people who are looking for jobs that the Obama administration's anti-business...

    Undaunted by a GOP primary that is effectively over, Rep. Ron Paul’s supporters are now working to take over state Republican parties and delegations to the Republican National Convention this summer. This weekend, Mr. Paul’s backers effectively captured the Alaska GOP, won the Louisiana caucuses and beat out delegates picked by Mitt Romney in Massachusetts, the presumptive nominee’s home state.

    Obamacare had a bad couple of days before the Supreme Court — so bad that President Obama made some ill-considered comments about the Court from which he still hasn't totally backpedaled. Though the oral arguments over the individual mandate and severability were encouraging, we cannot count on the Supremes to kill Obamacare. Opponents must keep fighting it on all fronts. The most important front right now is to ensure that states do not create the health-insurance exchanges Obamacare needs in order to operate. Refusing to create exchanges is the most powerful thing states can do to take Obamacare down. Think...

    Sort of mixing my football metaphors here, but Obama made the haughty comment after the Bin Laden operation that he didn’t need to “spike the football.” Well, a change of heart came over the president and he made a web video bragging about offing the al-Qaeda chief: Fourteen million unemployed or underemployed Americans in an election year will have that effect on a president.Weekly Standard: The narrator in the ad is former President Bill Clinton.This latest ad contradicts President Obama’s own pledge after he took out bin Laden. “You know, we don’t trot out this stuff as trophies,” Obama told...

    WESTERVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Mitt Romney's Etch A Sketch moment is at hand. Now that he's the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Romney is shifting away from the "red-meat" issues of abortion and immigration and instead holding more events highlighting his appeal as a regular guy. He will favor more intimate settings, like the Ohio classroom, and a schedule that calls for fewer public appearances as the campaign hopes to show a softer side of the former Massachusetts governor who struggles at times to connect with average Americans. That's a dramatic difference from Obama, who feeds on large crowds and has...
