    Just a little congressional race a full three years before the next presidential election, but yet it provides the clearest indication of exactly who all the major candidates are: Here are my grades from a conservative perspective. Sarah Palin First on October 22, Sarah Palin came out on her Facebook page with a strong endorsement of the Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman. A clear shot across the bow of the GOP establishment favoring principle over party. Palin cited Reagan’s ‘time for choosing’ and the principles of “smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a commitment to individual liberty “....

    (Rio de Janeiro) In honor of Barack Obama's epic failure to bring the Olympics to his beloved home town of Chicago, Barack Obama was awarded 10 Gold medals for the 2016 Olympics, becoming the first person to win so many golds in a single Olympics. Olympic officials shocked the world in the unprecedented move. In a statement released by the Olympic committed they said, "We have been watching Obama work on his bowling game, and we have no doubt his vision of perfect games will come to pass." Obama reacted to the news saying how humbling it was and was...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Early estimates put the cost of Sarah Palin's midterm resignation as Alaska governor at a minimum of $40,000, not including a special legislative session partly linked to her departure. The preliminary figures obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request show it cost the state almost $14,100 for the July 26 swearing-in ceremony of new Gov. Sean Parnell.

    One aspect of this health care debate that is not receiving much attention is how this massive health care will affect religious provided health facilities. About 10% of the nation’s hospitals are owned by the Catholic Church. Many states have heartburn with some of the exemption clauses that the Catholic Churches have, and have tried to force these religion institutions to provide care that they have conscious objections to like abortions and birth control. When health care dollars are completely under the umbrella of federal regulation, what will that mean for the religious freedom of these hospital and health care...
  • Dem Operative: Palin Should be a "Real Housewife"

    Of course Mike Huckabee sets up the segment with negative polls from the Washington Post, the proceeds to let a Democrat Operative make sexual smears of Palin with only a polite rebuttal. Mathew Littman, a Democrat operative who formerly worked for Biden, tells us that Palin should be on a character 'The Real Housewifes of Wisilla' (at about the 48 second mark of the clip). Democrats continue to make vile sexist remarks against Palin, and RINO's give them the microphone to do it. Here we have a former mayor, governor, candidate for VP, and Democrats are essentially calling her some...

    In the recent debates, both Obama and Biden have told us that under their tax plan is about ‘fairness’ and that no one will pay ‘no more than they did under Ronald Reagan’. These are boldface lies which we can not let stand. Karl Rove pointed this out after the VP debate on Fox, but even the well informed Rove only got it part right. Reagan’s top tax rate was 28%, and social security and Medicare were capped. Under Obama’s plan, the top rate would go up to 39.6%, much higher than Obama and Biden are telling us. But that...

  • Obama Equal Harry Reid (Reference Work)

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:  This report studied the voting records of Senator Obama and Senator Reid as provided by Project Vote Smart (see links below).  Obama supports the Democratic leadership as much as McCain supported the Republicans.  But unlike McCain, when Obama bucks his party, it is not to work as a bi-partisan to come up with a solution, but it is to move to a more liberal extreme position pandering to the far left elements of the party.  One of Obama's most disgusting plunges to far-left liberalism was to protect adults (non-parents) from talking minor children across state lines for abortions. ...

    The media is trying to make hay that Palin did not know what the Bush Doctrine was. Wikipedia is not a great source, but it does provide a consensus of sorts that tells us what terms mean. According to Wikipedia: "The Bush Doctrine is a phrase used to describe various related foreign policy principles of United States president George W. Bush, created in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks. The phrase initially described the policy that the United States had the right to treat countries that harbor or give aid to terrorist groups as terrorists themselves, which was...
  • Poll: 51 percent say reporters are trying to hurt Palin

    Yahoo! ^ | Sept 4, 2008 |
    Over half of U.S. voters (51%) think reporters are trying to hurt Sarah Palin with their news coverage, and 24% say those stories make them more likely to vote for Republican presidential candidate John McCain in November. Thirty-nine percent (39%) also believe the GOP vice presidential nominee has better experience to be president of the United States than Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. But 49% give Obama the edge on experience, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey taken before Palin's historic speech Wednesday night to the Republican National Convention. While Republicans and Democrats predictably favor their party's...

    Which of the following families is "richer"? The first family consists of a wife who has recently become a medical doctor, and she makes $160,000 per year. Her husband is a small business entrepreneur who makes $110,000 per year, giving them a total family income of $270,000 per year. However, they are still paying off the loans the wife took out for medical school and the loans the husband took out to start his business, amounting to debts of $300,000. Their total assets are valued at $450,000; hence, their real net worth or wealth (the difference between gross assets and...

    The accusations are detailed in two thick binders, the result of a nearly yearlong investigation by troopers. When the investigation appeared to stall, Palin -- more than a year before she was elected governor, and about two months before launching her campaign -- pushed trooper commanders to take action against Wooten. At one point, Palin and her husband, Todd, hired a private investigator.

    Very interesting week. First we had B.J. Clinton preaching the virtues of monogamy. Then we had father of the year Edwards finally admit he had an affair and to boot there is a possibility that he is the father of the love child. Then just a few minutes ago, I was watching the Olympics and a commercial came on proclaiming that 'we as a nation must ignore partisan politics'. I was thinking, this must be some BS from Obama or something. But then to my shocking surprise, Keith Olbermann's mug came on the screen. Keith Olbermann preaching the virtues of...

    HONG KONG - Share indexes in Hong Kong and Shangahi closed higher on Wednesday, as rumors that Beijing might soon implement a policy to assist the country's oil refiners sparked a late rally in that sector. The Hang Seng index closed up by 1.2%, or 290.83 points, to 25,460.29, supported mainly by speculation that China's central government will help struggling oil companies by permitting higher prices for refined products or reducing windfall taxes on their operations. H-shares of PetroChina (nyse: PTR - news - people ) rose 2.2%, to 11.36 Hong Kong dollars ($1.46), while CNOOC (nyse: CEO - news...

    Economy limps ahead at a 0.6 percent pace in first quarter, better pace than expected WASHINGTON (AP) -- The bruised economy limped through the first quarter of this year at only 0.6 percent as housing and credit problems forced people and businesses alike to hunker down. The country's economic growth during January through March was the same as in the final three months of last year, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. The statistic did not meet what economists consider the classic definition of a recession, which is a retraction of the economy. This means that although economy is stuck in...
