  • So, is Romney going to cut upper-income taxes over and above the Bush tax cuts - or not?

    Romney certainly had a spendid debate performance, but the back-and-forth quibbling over Romney wanting 5 trillion in new tax cuts over and above the Bush tax cuts, then Romney saying no he doesn't support that, then Obama saying yes you do, then Romney "no I don't," etc, etc - it all still left me with the central question: If Romney is elected president, will he cut taxes for upper-income earners over and above the Bush tax cuts. Yes or no? Romney can answer that and we can look back over his past statements on the matter - those during the...

    Election 2012: Indifference of the administration and the Defense Department will cause a record low military vote this year, particularly in swing states. Those who protect our right to vote deserve better. A new report by the Military Voter Protection Project found that absentee ballot requests by the military have dropped significantly since 2008 and are on track to make 2012 a record low for the military vote. As of Sept. 22, requests were down 46% in Florida, 70% in Virginia and 70% in Ohio. "These are (the) lowest numbers we've seen in the last decade," Eric Eversole, founder and...

    Federal functionaries serving radical agendas rather than taxpayers riddle Washington. Last week came further evidence that cultural Marxism imbues the Department of Agriculture. Orthodox Marxism fixates on the economic, revolving around class struggles. Cultural Marxism, otherwise called political correctness, incorporates social dynamics. The “privileged” class extends beyond capitalists and bourgeois to whites, men, Christians and heterosexuals. While workers are still afforded victimhood those “alienated” by American culture also include minorities, women and even people behaving ways historically considered immoral. President Obama perceives society through this politically correct prism. His raison d’être rests on a post-modern variant of Marxism popular in...

    Call it my senior mind but I had completely forgotten how surreal the 2008 presidential was until I saw the Citizens United film, "Hope and Change." The movie that was shown at the GOP convention was broadcast on television all last week. A neighbor who had also seen the film discussed it with me over a coffee klatch and was pretty blunt in her reaction. She happens to be a young black woman and she laughed and said: "I never saw so many dumb white people in one place." She may have been amused but I found it extremely frightening...

    We seem to be in the midst of another one of our periodic battles over liberal bias in the media, as denoted in recent days by Paul Ryan and various other conservatives vexed with the tone of campaign coverage. "It goes without saying that there is definitely media bias," Ryan said on Fox News. "I think most people in the mainstream media are left of center and, therefore, they want a very left-of-center president versus a conservative president like Mitt Romney." I think so myself after more than four decades of membership in that same suspect category, the gatherers and...

    President Barack Obama made a major gaffe when he recently said that we are owned, or "belong to", government. In the United States the government is supposed to "belong to" the people instead of the other way around as he suggests. We the people are supposed to own the government and tell it what to do. Obama and other elitists believe that government exists to control our personal lives and even tell us how much we can eat or drink. Some government controls are necessary to prevent people from harming others. Government needs to restrict sale of some substances that...

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | 28 Sep 2012 | RB
    On Thursday, Mother Jones reported that billionaire financier George Soros was "panicked" that Mitt Romney would win the election--and then scrubbed the story without explanation. Mother Jones--the left-wing outlet that published the incomplete "47 percent" video of Romney--was reporting on Soros's reasons for donating $1 million to the Paul Begala / Bill Burton run Priorities USA Action PAC on Sep. 27. Priorities USA Action is the same super PAC that ran the now-infamous "Soptic Ad" in which a man falsely linked Romney to his wife's death from cancer years after Romney left Bain Capital to run the Olympics. Soros now...

    The most recent RealClearPolitics average of the national polls shows President Obama holding a 3.3 point lead over Mitt Romney, 49.1 to 45.1. Additionally, his net job approval rating is now back to about even, 48.8 approve to 48.5 disapprove.It's important not to buy the left wing spin that this race is over: it's not even close to being over. Here's why.First, October is the month of voter decision making. A lot of the polls that show a narrow Obama lead are actually “pushing” undecided voters to make a decision. This will make for interesting swing in the polls as these...

Oct. 2, 2012 – “After careful review of the additional guidance provided by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Department of Defense (DOD), we will not issue sequestration-related WARN notices this year.

    It goes without saying that the mainstream media is an enemy of the American people. To fulfill its mission to reelect Obama, the MSM is willing to sacrifice national security, the economy and the best interest of our nation. Obama continues to lie about our ambassador’s murder in Libya. The Obama administration’s “fast and furious” gun scandal along with a plethora of Obama failures in leadership continue to go under-reported. The MSM completely ignores vital major news stories to focus on “gotcha”, lets make Romney look bad, trivia. A major network led its evening news TV broadcast asking, What must...
  • Lawless Obama Tells Contractors Its OK To Break Law To Get Him Reelected

    Corruption: Our lawless president tells defense contractors they can break the law requiring politically inconvenient layoff notices caused by sequestration defense cuts, and the taxpayers will pay their legal bills. When President Obama took the oath of office, he swore to uphold the Constitution and see that the laws of the United States were faithfully executed. He lied, and that lie was exposed in the administration's weekly document dump last Friday. It included a memo from the Department of Labor telling defense contractors not to obey the law and that, if they don't, U.S. taxpayers will foot their legal bills...

    President Barack Hussein "kill list" Obama says that he needs four more years to fix the economy. Never mind that the Gross Domestic Product grew at a "less than spectacular" rate of 1.3 percent in the second quarter of 2012. Or that George Walker Bush's deficit-to-GDP ratio was 2.7 percent, while Obama's deficit-to-GDP ratio is 8.9 percent (Reagan's, by the way, was 4.2 percent). Or that today's economy is far worse than it was in 2008. You remember, the one Obama claimed that his policies would correct. So, considering today's economy, despite what Obama (claims he) was not told, and...

    It's 4 a.m. in the morning, and I'm tossing in bed thinking of tonight's presidential debate. Debate zingers are swirling in my dazed head. So now I'm up and doing my bit for the Pajama media. Unlike Reagan, Romney is not known for memorable one-liners. He needs to leave some out there on the debate floor. I'm no wordsmith, but these phrases have been dancing in my head. Tonight, at least one glove has got to come off. It's not enough for Romney to keep mildly saying that Obama is in over his head. I'm just going to throw out...

    Up until the viral video of Obamaphone Lady appeared (“Keep Obama in president, you know!”), the webpage at obamaphone.net was all about how President Obama was giving all the poor people free phones. As if he was paying the bill, rather than us. But now that the Obamaphone Lady has been exposing the program so effectively as a vote-buying giveaway to hate-filled societal leeches, the Obamaphone.net page has changed completely. Guess what?! Obama has nothing to do with it! As you might expect, it’s Bush’s fault, at least partially. The webpage that previously bragged about how much Obama was doing...

    "Bush Lied, People Died" they chanted. When the intelligence about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq -- information that was believed by the intelligence agencies of our major allies; that was described by the Clinton-appointed head of the CIA as a "slam dunk"; and that was agreed to by heads of state and leaders of the Democratic and Republican parties -- turned out to be badly mistaken, George W. Bush was branded a liar. Even Democrats such as Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Tom Daschle, and Ted Kennedy, who had warned about Saddam's WMD program...

    Vice President Joe Biden said the middle class "has been buried the last four yeas" at a campaign event in Charlotte, North Carolina: "This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest," Biden said. "How they can justify--how they can justify--raising taxes when the middle class has been buried the last four years... How in Lord's name..." Of course, Barack Obama has been president the last four years, and Biden has been vice president.
