  • Is The Obama Campaign Influenced By Foreign Donations?

    Political Realities ^ | 10/09/12 | LD Jackson
    There are certain issues that President Obama has consistently hammered on during his first four years in the White House. You can almost always count on him to beat the "the rich need to pay their fair share" drum at his campaign stops, or in his news conferences. Wait, never mind about the news conferences. He doesn't hold those any more. Anyway, he has reminded us of the obligation the rich have to pay their fair share more than a few times. He has also lamented the Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court, going so far as to blast...

  • Rewriting History (The Real Cesar Chavez)

    American Rattlesnake ^ | October 9, 2012 | Gerard Perry
    With a little under a month remaining until Election Day, the Obama campaign has transitioned into full-blown hispandering mode. This week’s symbolically potent, yet empty, exercise in gestural politics entailed President Obama designating the home of former California labor leader Cesar Chavez a national monument. The ostensible purpose of this decision is to rally support among one of his party’s most reliable voting blocs, i.e. Hispanic Americans. Because even though they still decisively support the President’s reelection, that support does not always translate into votes, as other analysts have trenchantly observed. What makes Obama’s trip to California so fascinating though...
  • $5 Trillion Is Also How Much Obama Promised to Cut the Debt in 2008! - Did He Give Details?

    Romney and Ryan will continue to be pressed for details about the 20% tax cut proposal with regard to how they will come up with $5 trillion in offsets by telling specifically which deductions would be reduced or eliminted. Did Obama give any details when he promised to cut the $10 trilion debt in half (which would also be $5 trillion)? I don't recall, but I guess what's most important is that HE DID NOT DO IT! This gives Romney/Ryan a great comeback if they get pressed for details on the offsets in future debates: $5 trillion - where have...

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney wants to buy three more submarines over the next three years as part of his plan to boost shipbuilding to 15 ships per year, he said Monday in a speech at the Virginia Military Institute. Romney also plans to add an 11th aircraft carrier wing, build more Marine Corps amphibious ships, F/A-18 Super Hornets, a missile defense ship and a frigate. The Republican spoke in detail about his plans to grow the Navy while adding few details about the other services in his speech to VMI Keydets billed as a national security address. Chris Cavas,...

  • Vanity - President Obama biting his bottom lip. Never noticed before, driving me crazy!

    10/08/2012 9:39:03 PM PDT · by jcsjcm · 33 replies
    I guess I've never noticed him doing this. Probably because I have refused in the past to even watch him when he has been on TV. Well, now since the debate I've been watching closely and all I see is him running up on stage like a rock star and biting his bottom lip. It absolutely has gotten to an annoying point for me, so I decided to ask you all if anyone else has noticed this.

    Could someone help me out, please? I'm hoping to find a couple good reference sites as useful tools for the future. I'd like to be able to research the following: 1) How much revenue the US government received on a particular year. 2) What the deficit/surplus was per month or year. 3) How much was the National Debt on a particular year. So could someone please point me to any such sites? I'd appreciate it very much. Thank you.

    Here in Chicago, I regularly meet with a group of friends who call themselves “The Think Squad”; these are men and women who are prominent members of the black community in Hyde Park and the City’s south side. None of them supported Barack Obama’s presidential bid in 2008 but most begrudgingly voted for him because they freely admit race-pride was their motivating factor. These people knew Obama when he was a state senator and saw him do absolutely nothing for blacks in Chicago back then…and they similarly saw Obama do nothing for blacks (or any of his constituents in general)...

    Renew America ^ | October 8, 2012 | Stephen Stone
    I have a theory that's been nagging me for months, and I hope I'm completely wrong. My theory would help explain why Barack Obama appeared unfocused, overconfident, even annoyingly arrogant during the first presidential debate — obviously taking what could be a "game changer" too lightly — with the result that Mitt Romney didn't so much win their first in-person encounter as Obama lost it by default. An election with no precedent Here's my theory: Suppose you were the most powerful man on the planet — someone who could change the ruling structure of Egypt and Libya by the command...

    There are many things one can expect from a Barack Hussein Obama diatribe. The first thing you'll notice is a whole lot of mumbling and stuttering, much like a poor soul suffering a mini-stroke. The second is the occasional phoney-baloney "Malcolm X voice" (H/T Ann Coulter) if he's PO'ed about something. (You know, things like FOX News, no more chicken poodle soup, Benjamin Netanyahu, a lousy day at the links, that sort of thing.) The third thing you'll notice is his incessant cheerleading for federal interference in education, Constitution be damned. This cheerleading happens in almost every one of his...

    Last September the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee dumped over 6 inches of rain in the lower Susquehanna valley of Pennsylvania in a little than 12 hours. Streams and creeks swelled to levels that had not been seen since the September 1975 deluge by Tropical Storm Eloise. The rising waters were the final blow for several trees that were along my eroding stream bank. The undercutting of the flood waters toppled a couple which I knew would some day be brought down. Among the fallen was a good sized black walnut. Because it had grown in a grove with stiff...

    Those who look at history with a critical eye and those try to peel back the layers of government policies to understand the true motives behind them, understand that the face our government shows the public every day is not the only face our government has. There is a face that for good reason is not exposed to light of day, or at least is very rarely exposed. Inside and outside of our government, as well as other major powers, there are strategic think tanks that look at the world as a chess board. They look way into the future...

There could NOT be any more stark difference in choices this election. Many have voice their choice in the polls…47% to 47% (+/- 2). So that leads me to a very interesting question. Who are these 4-6 percent called “The Undecided”? Better yet, what make up of mindset does one have to actually have to NOT be able to form a choice? How many Liberal, Pro-Life, Big Government, Huge Military, Pro-Business, Keynesian Economic Republicans can...

    "In fourteen hundred ninety-two/ Columbus sailed the ocean blue. "He had three ships and left from Spain/ He sailed through sunshine, wind and rain." -- Source Unknown I'm old enough to remember a time when Christopher Columbus Day was a national holiday that was widely celebrated rather than shamefully downplayed and derided. Columbus has become the symbolic white devil harbinger of all that is evil about America's founding: genocide and manifest destiny imperialism; slavery and racism; annihilation and exploitation of peaceful, "noble savages" living in harmony with the environment. President Obama seems to echo the sentiments of multiculturalist leftists...

    Don’t look now but the Obama Administration torpedoed the American Flagship project’s long-planned, private sector funded initiative to build cruise ships here in America. Marine Link reported: As Royal Caribbean Cruises confidently orders its third Finnish-government-financed Oasis-class ship, the Obama Administration slams the door on American competition in this $40 billion-a-year industry supported almost entirely by US passenger revenues. The American Flagship project claims Obama bulldozed its long-planned, private sector funded, job-creating initiative – perhaps to spur already prolific foreign-flag campaign contributions. According to World City America Inc., the Finnish government has agreed to finance a third Royal Caribbean...

    Chávez is said to have got fifty-four percent of the vote. Assuming that he did, why and does it augur anything for our own election? Here are some thoughts from my favorite Venezuelan blogger, Daniel Duquenal (pseudonym) about yesterday's election. A student of Venezuela, he lives and votes there. He also dislikes el Presidente Chávez, with good reason. The people who reelected Chavez today know exactly what they voted for. They know about crime and violence. They know about inflation and scarcity. They know about vulgarity as a way of life. They know about political prisoners while the most corrupt...
