  • Americans Must Refuse to Be Cowed into Submission

    If Americans had any doubt how the liberal elite (Democrats in Congress, the press, the entertainment industry) felt about them before this month’s congressional recess, surely they must understand it now. Hard-working taxpaying Americans have been relatively complacent until recently, understandably occupied by their jobs, their finances, their families, and their personal responsibilities. Americans have had a largely unspoken but abiding faith in the enduring principles of American government, the fidelity of their elected representatives to those principles, and the vigilance of the press in defending both.Oops. The past few months have been eye-openers, haven’t they?As awareness of Obama’s true...

    Nancy Pelosi upped the ante in the health care debate when she responded to a media question in the following manner: Interviewer: Do you think there’s legitimate grassroot opposition going on here? Pelosi: "I think they’re Astroturf… You be the judge. "They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare." That being in addition to her reference to town hall protesters as "simply un-American."Well, first of all, Nancy Pelosi calls health care opponents "Astroturf," and the propagandist mainstream media have duly found evidence of one or two emails from conservative groups instructing opponents of health care...

    No shortage of chutzpah on the part of the White House, Democrats, and mainstream media. Even after White House press fixture Helen Thomas criticized the planting of reporters at so-called press conferences, the manipulation of public events and sentiments continues. Now we see the president, Dem Party, and Machiavellian media revving up their propaganda engines to push an unsuspecting public into believing that town hall meetings are staged, rent-a-mobs are bullying congressional members, and insurance companies are choreographing the entire scenario. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and others who express concern about the socialization of our healthcare system are getting slimed. Those...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is speaking out against the people who are speaking out against health care reform. Of course, that move by the California Democrat won't win her any fans among health care critics. Sorry, but Pelosi shouldn't be wasting too much of her time attacking opponents. Sure, some of them are planted by the GOP just to kill the Democratic Party's attempts at reform. But there also millions of Americans who have legitimate concerns about what's in the health care bills now circulating in Congress and how much proposed changes would cost. By now, both Democrats and Republicans...

    Obama's grassroots group from the campaign, Organizing for America, sent an email out to the millions on its list, urging supporters to visit their members of Congress in their offices. The email names each supporter's representative and offers help on the message. "All throughout August, our members of Congress are back in town. Insurance companies and partisan attack groups are stirring up fear with false rumors about the President's plan, and it's extremely important that folks like you speak up now," writes Mitch Stewart, director of the group. "So we've cooked up an easy, powerful way for you to make...

    The democrats pick one talking point and parrot it to attempt to discredit the Conservatives. Example, their latest attempt is that Insurance companies are organizing the grassroots townhall demonstrations. They get the word out and everyone parrots it to every media outlet and eventually it starts to sink in. I suggest the following; Who do the Democrats what you to Hate this week? Oil Companies? Insurance Companies? Car Companies? Doctors? Grandpa and Grandma? Tie these folks down to the "Party of Hate" that they are.

    August 10, 2009, 4:00 a.m. Ten Questions Politicians Won’t AnswerEvasive politicians, not concerned citizens, are dividing America over health-care reform. By Tom Coburn The past week’s debate about health care has shown that in Washington the only things more stubborn than facts are politicians who evade them. In spite of a torrent of independent analyses showing that the so-called health-care “reform” bills moving through Congress will dramatically increase the deficit and cause millions of Americans to lose their health insurance, the politicians leading the effort have steadfastly refused to consider that their ideas and policies, rather than the character...

    If you've tuned into the news in the past few days, it's clear that the debate about health insurance reform has heated up as Senators and Representatives return to their home states and districts. A troubling trend has also emerged: as more people become engaged in the issue, defenders of the status quo have responded by muddying the waters with more wild rumors and scare tactics. It's time for a reality check. Today the White House is rolling out a new website that focuses on what reform really means for you and your family, debunks some common myths along the...

    Rep. Kathy Castor is responding to vocal critics of heath care reform after getting drowned out by boos at a town hall meeting in Ybor City Thursday night. "Everyone is welcome, we need a healthy debate, but you cannot have a healthy debate on how to lower health care costs for families and help seniors and get kids to the pediatricians office when people are just going to get in your face and yell," she said. Castor left soon after the meeting started and says the near riot is the latest example of dirty politics at town halls across the...
  • Is Opposing Fascism Really An Act of Racism

    . Once again, with leftists in control of DC, here we are with the American people trying to shut down the leftist march to Marxism, and once again, the baseless cries of “racism,” --"fascism" and “right-wing” conspiracies flood the leftist MSM airwaves and headlines as a Marxist federal juggernaut runs head-on into the average American. But this time, Obama, Pelosi and Reid are convinced that they can ram all of it down Americans throats against their will because at the moment, they don’t need a single Republican vote to do it. Republicans are not losing the debate, there is no...

    Obama Tells US Citizen Opposition to Shut Up--or Else Showing once again that he is no statesman--let alone President of the United States--Dictator-in-Chief Obama told his Union thugs to “get out there” and fight back against any and all US citizens who oppose both him and his programs. So, at Town Hall meetings in both Tampa, FL and St. Louis, MO they did. In Tampa, Randy Arthur was shoved up against a wall by purported SEIU thugs resulting in Arthur suffering chest injuries and a ripped shirt. At the same meeting, a Democrat Party official--Karen Miracle--was photographed assaulting Barry Osteen...

    House Democratic leaders have set up a healthcare “war room” to help their rank-and-file members navigate a tumultuous August in which they find themselves on the defensive on their signature issue. The effort is being run out of Majority Leader Steny Hoyer’s (D-Md.) office, but is being manned around-the-clock by a rotation of leadership and key committee staff members, according to leadership aides. Although the war room or “healthcare hotline” is primarily designed to give members the ability to get immediate health policy answers and updates from leadership offices, top Democrats are also planning to use the war room to...

    The Democratic Party seems to have placed itself on the fast track to oblivion. As public rejection of Obama-care increases, our Democratic representatives are slinking into their shells, just like that fatal character who places her fingers in her ears and chants, "la la la." Worse than that, our representatives are now attempting to convince themselves that the opposition is actually some type of conspiracy; that the insurance and pharmaceutical companies have paid off some vast numbers of Americans, or that they all march to the drum of the Republican Party.

    For the last 8 years George Bush was called every hateful name that could be dreamed up from chimperor to Bush-Hitler. The left held huge rallies, they got loud, they broke windows, they shut down debates and they always scolded those who questioned their patriotism in kissing up to the worst kinds of terrorist and dictator scum. In St. Louis a conservative handing out small flags was beaten to the ground and kicked in the head by 4 paid union thugs. He was hospitalized while HHS Sec Sebellius thanked the SEIU for their good work in a teleconference and said...

    Why of course that many protestors are racists, says Cynthia Tucker of the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. Mark Finkelstein at Newsbusters has this exchange between Tucker and Crissy Matthews on Hardball (video here -- ): CHRIS MATTHEWS: Put 100 of these people in a room. Strap them into gurneys. Inject them with sodium pentathol. How many of them would say "I don't like the idea of having a black president"? What percentage? CYNTHIA TUCKER: Oh, I'm just guessing. This is just off the cuff. I think 45 to 65% of the people who appear at these groups are people who will...

    For over half a century, I've been a strong believer in, and an ardent practitioner of, first amendment protection of freedom of speech. Even when I don't like or agree with some of the speech. But “freedom of speech” is not “freedom to lie,” not “freedom to distort” nor “freedom to deliberately frighten.” Thus, two items in the news these days make me boil right down to the soles of my feet! The first is the “kill granny” crazies deliberately lying about end-of-life discussions with your doctor as the subject appears in one of the five health care overhaul bills...
