  • Allen West Tells Reporter ‘I Don’t Want Your Endorsement’

    front porch politics ^ | 9/1/12 | none
    You gotta love Allen West. He shoots straight from the hip and tells a reporter from a particular paper that endorses his opposition and tells him he doesn’t want their endorsement. In fact, he tells them to keep endorsing the guys that lose. This is the entire article. He also has a video.

    THE DAILY BEAST ^ | 8/19/2012 | NIALL FERGUSON
    Despite having been—full disclosure—an adviser to John McCain, I acknowledged his opponent’s remarkable qualities: his soaring oratory, his cool, hard-to-ruffle temperament, and his near faultless campaign organization. Yet the question confronting the country nearly four years later is not who was the better candidate four years ago. It is whether the winner has delivered on his promises. And the sad truth is that he has not. In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines...

    GOP USA ^ | 08/18/12 | OLIVER NORTH
    Obama planted the seeds for all this when he publicly announced a timetable for withdrawing U.S. troops. His deadline is fertile ground for jihadis who know that their "window of opportunity" for murder is closing. We should expect the bitter harvest of "green on blue attacks" to produce a bumper crop of American casualties -- unless we hire a new commander in chief who knows how to fight a war and win. --- Oliver North is the host of "War Stories" on Fox News Channel, the founder and honorary chairman of Freedom Alliance, and the author of "American Heroes in...

    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...

    Submitted by Jennifer King [AGAIN!] (United Kingdom), Dec 27, 2005 at 12:26 SOS!!! TO ALL INNOCENT INFIDELS! PEACE IN ISLAM Qur'an 25:63 says, "When Muslims are addressed by the ignorant they should reply, ‘PEACE.' This means when anyone who is ignorant of the terrible truth about Islamic law and history asks Muslims about Islam, they can be deluded into thinking that Islam is peaceful and tolerant. And ignorance, while it can be bliss, is in this case fatal. 3:28 "Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, they shall have no...

    TOWNHALL ^ | 7/25/2012 | THOMAS SOWELL
    Random thoughts on the passing scene: Even squirrels know enough to store nuts, so that they will have something to eat when food gets scarce. But the welfare state has spawned a whole class of people who spend everything they get when times are good, and look to others to provide for their food and other basic needs when times turn bad. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution prescribes "equal protection of the laws" to all Americans. But what does that mean, if the President of the United States can arbitrarily grant waivers, so that A, B and C have...

This is incredible!! by Martin Riding on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 at 7:15am � PRESIDENT CHANGES MILITARY FUNERALS When I received this email, I could not believe it... So, I checked with Snopes... I learned that it is TRUE:http://WWW.snopes.Com/politics/military/funeral.asp There has been a change in U.S. military burial protocol! This is a letter that my good friend's husband wrote today after his uncle's funeral yesterday. If Obama does not want his name associated with our military, he does not deserve to be "The President of the United States ". - Alice...

    The United States needed Obama when he came along. Without him and his disregard for the American Way and the Laws of the US the conservatives would have been whistling in the wind. No one was listening that we were going down the wrong path. No one paid attention to facts during the Bush Administration. It was a given that Bush created our problems when in fact it was Bush who tried to resolve problems and set the country in the right direction that the Democrats derailed time after time and the MSM blamed Bush. The country can't turn a...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 05/15/2012 | PHILIP KLEIN
    Conservatives are having a laugh after it surfaced that the official presidential biographies on the White House website have been updated to inject President Obama into history. But kidding aside, this is a truly disgraceful behavior. In the most egregious example, noted by the Heritage Foundation's Rory Cooper, the official Ronald Reagan biography is appended with the note: "In a June 28, 1985 speech Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multi-millionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffet Rule." (Over at Commentary,...

    GOP USA ^ | 5/11/2012 | MICHELE MALKIN
    While the White House and its media water-carriers try to distract the American public with gay-marriage talk and half-century-old tales of Mitt Romney's prep school pranks, the inconvenient truth remains: President Obama is responsible for perpetrating jaw-dropping, job-killing scientific fraud. And his minions are still trying to cover it up. New internal e-mails disclosed by the House Natural Resources Committee this week show that a supposedly exculpatory report on the administration's doctored drilling moratorium analysis -- issued by the Department of Interior's Inspector General's office -- was itself incomplete, misleading and unsubstantiated. Even more damning, the documents reveal that the...

    THE HILL ^ | 5/4/2012 | JUSTIN SINK
    House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Friday that the Obama campaign's new website — which uses a fictionalized woman named Julia to illustrate how the president's policies help female voters — is "creepy" and "demeaning." “It suggests that this woman can’t go anywhere in life without Barack Obama’s government-centered society. It’s kind of demeaning to her,” Ryan said during a constituent meeting in Wisconsin, the National Review reports. “She must have him and his big government to depend on to go anywhere in life. It doesn’t say much about his faith in Julia.”

    During the speech, Obama ripped into the presumptive GOP nominee and discussed nation building at home, but the most newsworthy item of the day was not the talking points Obama delivered: it was the crowd... or lack thereof. According to ABC News, the Obama campaign had expected an "overflow" of people. Instead, the arena looked half-empty. The Columbus Dispatch reports that Obama organizers even had people move from the seats to the floor of the gym in order to project a larger crowd on television.

He also said the thousands of pages of environmental reviews already completed for the earlier application should convince the president to speed this new permit along.

If the weekly unemployment claims far exceed the weekly job creation numbers, and they have for three years and by a considerable amount each week I believe, how come the unemployment rate goes DOWN?????

    Eh, what does this guy know about leadership, anyway? He’s only the most widely respected CEO of the last twenty years or so and the founder of a school that develops leaders in the business world, plus the author of a book or two on the subject. Former GE chief Jack Welch unloaded on Barack Obama yesterday for his chronic lack of leadership, manifest mainly through the ever-expanding universe of scapegoats that Obama cites for the failures of his economic policies. Welch thinks that Obama has become positively Nixonian — or maybe worse (via Instapundit):

    The track record of Barack Obama's pronouncements on a wide range of issues suggests that anything he says is a message written in sand, and easily blown away by the next political winds. Remember the "shovel-ready projects" that would spring into action and jump-start the economy, once the "stimulus" money was available? Obama himself laughed at this idea a year or so later, when it was clear to all that these projects were going nowhere.

    TOWNHALL ^ | 3/1/2012 | DR THOMAS SOWELL
    Many people are looking to the many primary elections on March 6th -- "Super Tuesday" -- to clarify where this year's Republican nomination campaign is headed. It may clarify far more than that, including the future of this nation and of Western civilization. If a clear winner with a commanding lead emerges, the question then becomes whether that candidate is someone who is likely to defeat Barack Obama. If not, then the fate of America -- and of Western nations, including Israel -- will be left in the hands of a man with a lifelong hostility to Western values and...

    This story is part of a larger profile appearing in the March 12th, 2012 issue of FORBES magazine. Sheldon Adelson plays as stubbornly in politics as he does in business. So the criticisms that he’s trying to personally buy the presidential election for Newt Gingrich are met with a roll of the eyes. “Those people are either jealous or professional critics,” Adelson tells me during his first interview since he and his wife began funneling $11 million, with another $10 million injection widely expected, into the former speaker’s super PAC, Winning Our Future. “They like to trash other people. It’s...

    "As a result, the NYPD deemed it prudent to get a better handle on what was occurring at MSAs," Browne said in an email. He said police monitored student websites and collected publicly available information in 2006 and 2007.But documents show other surveillance efforts continued for years afterward. "I see a violation of civil rights here," said Tanweer Haq, chaplain of the Muslim Student Association at Syracuse University. "Nobody wants to be on the list of the FBI or the NYPD or whatever. Muslim students want to have their own lives, their own privacy and enjoy the same freedoms and...

It states "The Republicans should consider the Country above Party". The only thoughts that came to mind after reading such a statement is,.......THE MAN IS EITHER INSANE, LACKS ANY MEMORY WHATSOEVER, OR IS ON A MISSION TO RUIN THIS COUNTRY, AND HE'S DOING A WONDERFUL JOB SO FAR. This is the same man that locked out any dissention from the Republican party when both houses...
