  • Charisma Founder Steve Strang Endorses Ted Cruz for President

    Exactly one year from today a new president will be sworn in. I'm hoping that new president is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Today, I am officially endorsing Cruz for our nation's highest office.To me, my endorsement comes down to three things: the man, his character, and his strategy for how he will clear up the mess our nation is in.The Iowa Caucus is in only 12 days, followed eight days later by the New Hampshire primary. Cruz is surging in the polls. If he wins some of the early primaries, he will have a momentum to make it all the way to the...
  • How Ted Cruz Has Already Won the Faith & Freedom Conference

    US News & World Report's The Run 2016 ^ | June 18, 2015 | David Catanese
    The Texas senator blew away the crowd of conservatives with a finely tuned speech on religious liberty.There are two full days left of the Faith & Freedom Coalition's annual Washington conference. But Ted Cruz already won it on Thursday. The Texas senator measurably outperformed his two Senate GOP colleagues, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, with a tightly woven sermon on religious liberty delivered with vigor and conviction. He was rewarded with the most frequent and loudest applause and the highest praise from the gathering of social conservatives at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. It wasn't just the dramatic delivery that separated...
  • Shades of 'Sick and Tired': Hillary Screeches On NC Stump

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    If you're like me, Hillary's grating "sick and tired" lines from 2003 are seared, seared in your memory. And so it was that I experienced a sort of campaign PTSD this morning upon hearing Hillary at it again. MSNBC's Daily Rundown aired a clip from Hillary's recent stump speech in North Carolina for Dem Senator Kay Hagan. It all flashed back: a similar screech, the same grating cadence, the utter absence of charisma. Question for the MSM: are you really ready to jump on the Hillary bandwagon? Why not go for a Dem candidate with charm, like, say, Bernie Sanders...

  • Obama: Actually, my mother-in-law has more charisma than Bo

    President Obama addressed a crowd of supporters at a campaign rally in Davenport, Iowa on Wednesday. The President, who was introduced to the audience by his wife, Michelle, said that the First Lady was a tough act to follow: "Because let's face it, on the charisma rankings in my household, you got her [Michelle]; the girls; Bo; and then my mother-in-law and then me" [laughter]... The President quickly added, "Actually my mother-in-law-is before Bo..." Question: How is it even possible for Bo to have more charisma than the President? See the video... for the answer...... VIDEO

    National Review ^ | 07/25/2012 | Thomas Sowell
    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 to obey the laws but X,...

    Gay Pressure on PayPal Named as Fourth Top Anti-Christian Act of 2011 Commentary by Julio Severo Americans were asked to name the top 10 Anti-Christian Acts of 2011 in the US, and the fourth place was given to the homosexual effort to close PayPal accounts from a list of ten Christian organizations, including me. For a long time I have been under attack from Brazilian gay activists. But this was the first time that an American gay group blacklists me with major Christian groups.

    Apparently the GOP has a bit of a 2012 Dukakis problem on its hands. Everyone is either boring or unattractive, or too in bed with the conservative elites. And therefore no matter how much they trounce Obama on the issues, or his lack of a record worth mentioning in a reelection campaign, their leg tingles will pull the lever for the president because his smile is nicer.That's what the New York Times says anyway. It's nice that they're looking out for our side. That must mean Obama has all his ducks in a row to cruise to reelection. He's...

The Betfair Contrarian explains why everybody's favourite Alaskan is his choice... The Contrarian has proven in the past that he's even more adept at making money out of politics than an expense-fiddling MP, his latest triumph coming when opposing David Miliband at 1.43 in last year's Labour leadership battle. He's spotted another big opportunity - backing Sarah Palin to be the Republican candidate...

    The American Thinker ^ | October 31, 2010 | Bruce Walker
    Fifty years ago, American government -- even American society -- entered into a wonderland of youth, prettiness, chic, and charisma. John Kennedy had defeated Richard Nixon in the presidential debates (or at least JFK defeated Nixon in the eyes of the millions of Americans who watched the debates -- those who heard them on the radio felt that Nixon had won). The election of 1960 was incredibly close and could have torn the country apart, except that mean-spirited Nixon (unlike Nobel Prize winner Gore) chose to concede and spare the nation a political civil war. A glorious age was about...

    Charisma can trick people into entrusting their fate to someone whose words cannot be relied upon, in the mistaken belief that somehow his actions can be relied upon. But sooner or later, people will wake up to the fact that neither his words nor his actions can be trusted. We can only hope that it will be sooner rather than later.
  • In defense of bad singing (Kanye West on SNL, industry use of autotune, and the changing culture)

    LA Times ^ | 04:10 PM PT, Dec 15 2008 | August Brown
    After Kanye West's performance on "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend, the chattering classes are wringing their hands today over the gee-whiz revelation that, maybe underneath all that gratuitous Auto-Tune, West's voice might be a bit, as they say, "pitchy." We can go back and forth about the relative disaster-or-not qualities of his two-song set, but the hullabaloo over it begs for a few responses. First: hey, indie rockers, if you don't think that half your favorite beardo bands use things like Melodyne... But the second, and more crucial one, is this: What makes a "good" singer anyhow, and what...

Not only has he won all of the post-Super Tuesday contests, but he has steadily gained in Gallup Poll Daily tracking to the point where he has overtaken Clinton as the national leader for the first time, holding a statistically significant lead in each of the last three tracking poll results. (snip) Obama's standing has improved among most Democratic subgroups over the past several days. But one of the more substantial shifts has been the changing...

    Bound to Fail Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has taken on 'mission impossible.' Everything about The United Nations conspires against him. By Sebastian Mallaby Newsweek International March 5, 2007 issue - On a celebrated Thursday in April 1953, the first secretary-general of the United Nations greeted his successor as he arrived at New York's Idlewild airport, now JFK. You are about to inherit "the most impossible job in the world," he told him. Half a century on, that warning still overshadows the heirs to the U.N. throne. Ban Ki-moon, the South Korean diplomat who stepped into the job in January, jokes that...

    THE first vote is still more than a year away, but the campaign to replace President George W Bush in the White House is already throwing up surprises. Unfortunately for Senator Hillary Clinton, long the front-runner in the Democratic drive to retake the presidency, most of them are coming at her expense. A brace of Christmas opinion polls has left Clinton with a political hangover after a year that had appeared to cement her status as the Democrats best-organised, best-financed and best-connected contender for her partys presidential nomination. Despite winning re-election to the US Senate by a handsome margin in...

    4. They often have hyper-masculine or other sexual auras A politician is a salesman who is selling himself as the product. The strong and distinctive voice, from Roosevelt to JFK to Clinton, is a testament to the power of a strong masculine aura. America adores its combat heros; it's the reason why former Generals get elected President. It's the reason why an actor with practically no prior government related experience can beat an incumbent on a recall for the highest position in the California state legislature. The gamblin', rough-and-ready cowboy is in every young American boy's imagination and every young...

He lacks his military experience, his charismatic presence, his brutality and his frightening cunning. And Olmert's image as a sharp-tongued polemicist and wheeler-dealer has not exactly endeared him to the Israeli public. Yet he managed to step, albeit gingerly, into Sharon's shoes in the three months since the latter's incapacitation. Except for boasting, once, that the campaign had already been won - a statement that must have cost Kadima dearly - he did not make any mistakes in the difficult...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov. 19 - With its sleek horizontal form hovering at the edge of the Arkansas River, the new William J. Clinton Presidential Center has been called by promoters a "bridge to the 21st century," a trite allusion to one of the former president's favorite themes. Locals snicker that it looks like an enormous double-wide trailer. Actually, its best elements fall somewhere between those two extremes. Designed by James Polshek and Richard Olcott of the New York-based firm Polshek Partnership, the library has moments of genuine architectural power. Its sleek cantilevered form thrusts out aggressively toward the river,...
