    The weekend is over and Mitt Romney's announcement of Paul Ryan as his Vice-President has rocked the world of presidential politics, possibly in ways that none of us imagine. Since Saturday morning, when the announcement was made, I have read countless news articles and blog posts about Paul Ryan. I was already familiar with him, but am even more so now. The articles and posts I have read contained a wide range of opinions and details about Paul Ryan. Many of them say the choice of Paul Ryan was a bold move by Mitt Romney, for better or for worse....
  • CBS Still Claiming Obama's 'You Didn't Build That' Was About Infrastructure

    Incredible. CBS News has an anti-Romney "fact check" article up this morning supposedly debunking statements made by Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan during yesterday's introduction of the veep pick. At the end, CBS actually snuck in the hyper-partisan, DNC-talking-point assertion that it was "clear" that when President Obama utttered his infamous "you didn't build that," he was talking about "teachers and infrastructure." CBS claims that in criticizing "you didn't build that," Republicans "seized on only part of Obama's quote." In fact, it is CBS itself that edited out another, most telling, part of Obama's comments. The network omitted the following...
  • Our Dishonorable President

    After the massacre in Tucson that saw six murdered and U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., and 12 others wounded, President Obama gave a speech at the memorial where he called for raising the tone in politics. To honor the memory of those killed and wounded the president said: The loss of these wonderful people should make every one of us strive to be better in our private lives -- to be better friends and neighbors, co-workers and parents. And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let's remember...
  • Ryan: It's Time to Restore the American Dream

    08/11/2012 4:37:47 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | August 11, 2012 | Katie Pavlich
    Speaking before a packed crowd on the USS Wisconsin in Norfolk, Virginia today, Rep. Paul Ryan proudly accepted his invitation to be Mitt Romney’s vice presidential nominee and running mate. The location of the announcement was picked based on Norfolk’s long history of defending freedom. The theme of the announcement was focused heavily on protecting and restoring the American Dream. “It’s an honor to announce my running mate and the next [vice] president of the United States, Paul Ryan,” Romney said in front of a roaring crowd waving American flags. Romney introduced Ryan as a man of character and principle,...
  • Remembering Brian Terry on His 42nd Birthday

    Today would be Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry's 42nd birthday. Terry was shot in killed in the Arizona desert on December 15, 2010. Two guns left at his murder scene traced back to Operation Fast and Furious. More than two years later, the family still doesn't have many answers and the Department of Justice coverup of the operation is worse than ever. But despite this fact, just search for justice and closure is ongoing. Brian Terry will never be forgotten. Statement from the Terry family: While Brian Terry’s family marks his birthday, they continue to press for answers in the...

    Today during his VP acceptance speech on the USS Wisconsin, Paul Ryan didn't wear a tie. Big deal right? Well, to CNN's James Carville it was. Luckily, conservative Erick Erickson knew exactly how to respond. VideoCarville must have forgotten that President Obama fails to wear a tie on a regular basis.

    The SuperPAC supporting Barack Obama, PrioritiesUSA Action, has produced an ad showing a man who claims is wife died of cancer because the steel plant at which he worked was closed by Mitt Romney. When he lost his job, Joe Soptic says, he lost his health insurance. "A short time later," he says, his wife got sick, but didn't tell him because they didn't have insurance. By the time he took her to the hospital she was diagnosed with cancer from which she died about two weeks later. The story is true in its facts, but it is a total...
  • If You Like Obama's Failed Policies, Vote for Him

    08/10/2012 6:33:50 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 38 replies ^ | August 10, 2012 | David Limbaugh
    Those who understand that America is now on the wrong track cannot reasonably vote for Obama in November, because he is absolutely unwilling to change, perhaps even ideologically incapable of changing, course. Evidence abounds. First, consider his disastrous economic record and his rejection of any semblance of a course change. He and his economic advisers told us his stimulus would keep unemployment below 8 percent. It didn't. He didn't consider for a second that his policies exacerbated the economic crisis. He blamed Bush and said that if anything, he -- Obama -- hadn't spent enough. He demanded more stimulus packages...

    There are some things that are just so obvious, they can not be ignored. One of those things is the complete and utter hypocrisy of Barack Obama. Obviously, the man wants a second term in the White House, and make no mistake, he is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that happens. Lie about his record? Check! Lie about Mitt Romney's record? Check! Be a hypocrite? Check!The latest examples of his hypocrisy comes after his Super Pac published the now-debunked ad accusing Mitt Romney of causing the death of Joe Soptic's wife. The ad was so blatantly...

    Today marks the four year anniversary of when ATF Special Agent Jay Dobyns’ house was burned to the ground. The blaze was set to his home while his wife and children were sleeping inside at 3 a.m. As a refresher, Dobyns is a 25-year ATF veteran and worked undercover in the Hells Angels gang for two years in what was known as “Operation Black Biscuit.” When he got out after putting dozens of the Angels in prison, members of the gang in coordination with hard criminals in prisons around the country, issued death threats against him and his family. These...
  • Yikes: Obama Suggests We Bail Out Every Struggling Industry

    Bailouts for everyone! That's the latest push coming from President Barack Obama's lips. During a campaign event in Colorado today, Obama touted his "successful" bailout of the auto industry.  President Obama, while villifying Mitt Romney for opposing the auto industry bailout, bragged about the success of his decision to provide government assistance and said he now wants to see every manufacturing industry come roaring back. “I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back,” he said. “Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing...

    Union heads of both the ICE and Border Patrol Councils have stated that Barack Hussein Obama has deliberately handed a get out of jail free card to illegal alien criminals. In June, Obama bypassed Congress, issuing an unconstitutional executive order which requires Border Patrol agents to release illegal aliens who CLAIM to have: “come to the United States under the age of 16 and are not more than 30; lived in the U.S. for five straight years; are currently in school of have graduated high school; obtained a GED or been honorably discharged from the military; or have not been...
  • 'Mad Dog' Harry Reid

    To call Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a "mad dog," as Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank did, is an affront to the canine community and those suffering from legitimate mental illness. Reid was completely sane when he spread hearsay about an anonymous Bain Capital investor who allegedly told him Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years. Doesn't Reid, a Mormon like Romney, subscribe to the prohibition in the Ninth Commandment: "Thou shall not bear false witness"? He appears to pay no political price because he's a Democrat and unlike Joe McCarthy, to whom some are comparing him, no prominent...
  • The Rich Pay Their Fair Share in Taxes — And Then Some

    ARE AMERICANS EAGER for higher taxes on the affluent? Barack Obama and his allies clearly think so. The president who came to office vowing to "spread the wealth around" by raising taxes on individuals with incomes above $200,000 is doubling down, making a tax hike on the rich the centerpiece of his campaign for reelection. "We should ask the wealthiest Americans to pay a little more," he urged a White House audience last week. "We're talking about folks like me going back to the tax rates that existed under Bill Clinton.… And here's the thing -- there are a lot...

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently said of the Chick-fil-A fast-food franchise that "Chick-fil-A's values are not Chicago's values." Why? Because Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy is on record as being opposed to gay marriage -- as is close to half the U.S. population, according to polls. The mayors of Boston and San Francisco also suggested that the company isn't welcome in their cities. Oddly, none of these public officials have lectured President Obama to keep clear of their cities. Yet until recently, Obama was likewise on record as opposing gay marriage. Why the exemption? Nor have the mayors in question disinvited...

    Try to define progressivism . In fact, ask progressives to try to define progressivism . All we really know is that they’re, well, progressing. They and their ideas and their politics are always changing, evolving. This means that what they believe and hold fast and dear today may not be what they believe and hold fast and dear tomorrow, or decades or a century from now. For instance, when progressive heroine Margaret Sanger started her American Birth Control League a century ago, she was seeking birth control for, among other purposes, what she and fellow progressives termed “race improvement.” She...

    Feigning indignity, outrage and remorse, the Obama Administration quietly watched from the sidelines as a Hezbollah commander, guilty of planning the murder of five U.S. Marines, was set free on July 30th by the Iraqi central criminal court. In January of 2007, a dozen or more terrorists dressed in U.S. uniforms opened fire on a military camp in Karbala, just south of Baghdad. One soldier died at the scene and four others were kidnapped, tortured and murdered by the terrorists. The mastermind of this complex attack was Ali Mussa Daqduq, a Lebanese national taken by U.S. forces in Basra just...

    Just when we thought the smear campaign against Mitt Romney could get no worse, it does. I am almost at a loss for words to describe the lies that are now being told about Mitt Romney. Ridiculous and despicable are the only terms that really come close. First, we have Harry Reid and his lies about having a source who told him Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes for 10 years. Reid says it is up to Romney to prove the allegation false. That was bad enough. Now we have Priorities USA, a Super Pac supporting Barack Obama, publishing an ad...

    In March 2010, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced that his department was “going to reinvigorate civil rights enforcement” in the nation’s schools. What was the pervasive racial injustice that led Mr. Duncan to redouble such efforts? Black elementary and high school students are three and a half times more likely to get suspended or expelled than their white peers, according to federal data. And so the Departments of Education and Justice have launched a campaign against disproportionate minority discipline rates, which show up in virtually every school district with significant numbers of black and Hispanic students. The possibility that...
