    Wisconsin's Republican Governor Scott Walker, fighting a recall election, against his challenger Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, face-off June 5, 2012, in one of most important contests of our generation.. Background noise? Not even close..Make no mistake, this pesky little contest will determine the momentum, on both sides, and serve as a preamble of the major General Election this November.. All of the important Democrat lifeblood constituencies are at stake, and are being challenged, and hanging by a slim thread, thanks to a true hero, GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER. He and the fighting spirit of his fellow Wisconsinites, dared to touch...

    ... On May 16, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, visited the Miami home of Dr. Philip Frost, the chairman of the board of Teva Pharmaceuticals, an Israel-based company that produces many different medicines, including regular contraceptives. Teva is also one of the country's largest producers of generic drugs. ... “At this point, the sentiment of most pro-life leaders and activists I am in contact with is that this election is about avoiding the unmitigated disaster of a second Obama term," said Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life. "This is not the first...
  • Very Annoyed Matthews Rips Horse’s Ass Right-Wingers Who Cite Thrill Up My Leg, Calls Host a Jackass

    In February of 2008, NewsBusters first highlighted MSNBC’s Chris Matthews oozing “I felt this thrill going up my leg” while listening to a speech by Barack Obama. Conservatives reminding him of it has certainly annoyed Chris Matthews ever since, so much so that he lashed out at C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, sinking to including the non-profit cable network’s senior executive producer as amongst the “jackasses” who dare to ask him about his infamous Obamagasm moment. The confirmation of Matthews’ incredibly thin skin came Tuesday at a panel session during the National Cable and Telecommunications Association’s convention in Boston. “I hope you...

    Now that the State Primaries are almost completed, it is important to ask if Moderate Mitt from Mass. has proven himself to be able to beat unqualified, incompetent, arrogant, Marxist Obama? The RNC made the Primary Campaign rules, and so the RNC can change those same rules. No Federal Regulator will be involved, 'I guarantee it.' IF Romney has only a slight chance to win in November, THEN it is incumbent upon the RNC to DUMP Romney and choose a stellar Dark Horse, such as Rep. Allen West from Florida. Nominee Allen West would nullify Obama's race card, attack Obama"care"...

    * By: Larry Walker, Jr. *“In America the President reigns for four years, and Journalism governs forever and ever.” ~ Oscar Wilde *According to Barack Obama, the job of the President of the United States is to “make sure everyone has a fair shot." However, according to Article II (Sections 1 – 3) of the United States Constitution, in which the job of the President is officially and clearly outlined, nowhere do we find such 'verbage'. Therefore, it is unnecessary to try to figure out who’s included or excluded in 'everyone', and how fair a shot must be – before...

    The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee announced Wednesday he likely won't bring up the Law of the Sea Treaty for a vote before the November election. Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said some lawmakers “on and off the committee” have candidly told him they'd “be more comfortable” if they could avoid having to cast the controversial vote during the campaign season. He made the announcement during a high-level hearing with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey. “I would like to see this

    Roll Call ^ | 5/22/2012 | oshua Miller
    In a stinging rebuke of the Kentucky Republican establishment, tea-party-affiliated Lewis County Judge-Executive Thomas Massie won tonight’s GOP primary to replace retiring Rep. Geoff Davis (R) in the 4th district. With 72 percent of precincts reporting, the Associated Press called the race for Massie. He had 44.9 percent of vote, state Rep. Alecia Webb-Edgington had 29 percent and Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore had 17.4 percent. Davis, along with former Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning (R), backed Webb-Edgington, who had broad establishment support. Conservative Republican Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Mike Lee (Utah) backed Massie. The district is safe Republican turf,...

    I first met Mitt Romney in the fall of 1985 when he took a chance on me and my idea to sell discount office supplies. Together we then worked to found Staples. From the very beginning, I saw that he was super-frugal. He didn’t want to pay more than he had to for things like paper clips. That was the idea behind Staples. And for Mitt, cutting costs and running things well has been a consistent animating idea, whether he’s been in business or government or running the Olympics. Now that he’s campaigning for president, Mitt’s brand of leadership could...

    Judging from the opening rounds of the 2012 campaign for president, Barack Obama's campaign staff may have met its match with the rapid-response group put together by Mitt Romney. Unlike the presidential campaign four years ago, when political newcomer Obama rolled over a strangely passive John McCain, Obama this time around faces an aggressive Romney campaign team that is savvy and bold, and knows how to punch back. And frequently, the counterpunch is more effective than the punch, especially when the first punch comes from Obama, who is prone to lead with his chin, and is used to treating candidates...

    This video is the quintessential 2012 campaign speech. If every Republican, from Romney to dog catcher, would use this video as their primary campaign ad, they would win in a landslide. Reagan's principles are conservative principles. His, and ours, will live forever as long as everyone is educated about basic conservative ideas.

    These men are blemishes at your LOVE feasts, eating with you without the slightest qualm---shepards who feed only themselves. They are clods without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted—twice dead. Jude 1:12 Our Founding Fathers gave us all the weapons we need to protect our Country from another Monarchy. Whether that Monarchy is a Dictator, a King or Premier they had the Biblical wisdom to protect us from the enslavement we are beginning to witness.

    A Marine veteran was unjustly turned away from a voting booth because he was openly carrying a handgun. If you ever wonder why the phrase "I support our troops" gets thrown around so much, it's because of people like Clay Edinger. This man showed a level of principle and calm composure that few people would have been able to maintain in such a frustrating situation. A former Marine, Edinger carries a firearm with him just about wherever he goes. Indiana law lets him do that, of course, as long as he stays out of places like schools and courthouses where...

Of course, those of you reading this have been paying attention for years, even decades, but that's because you're all freaks and oddballs like me. At least that's what the majority thinks of us. We prefer to think of ourselves as exceptional and concerned – responsible citizens, but they see us as demented political junkies lacking in real life. Any way you want to define us – those of us...

    Representative Margaret Conditt (Butler County District 55) held a fundraiser at the Middletown Sportsmens Club on Saturday, May 12, 2012. The plan was to invite a handful of supporters, spend a few hours shooting at targets, and raise a little money for her reelection campaign. But what actually happened took everyone by surprise. Rather than hosting a typical fundraiser which would ordinarily draw a few dozen people, Rep. Conditt ended up hosting a major event that drew over 200 attendees and raised tens of thousands of dollars. What happened? Rep. Conditt got an "accidental" assist from a group of anti-gun...
