    A lot of people were taken aback today by a bold, out of the blue campaign fund raising tactic. The campaign to retain The Usurper in the pResidency has asked that ordinary folks give up their gifts. That's wedding gifts, birthday gifts, anniversary gifts and for all we know, the flowers and candy you were going to give that "special someone" on Sweetest Day (because they already missed out on Valentine's day.) I'm sure that if the months of December and November were reversed on the calendar, the children's Christmas toys and stocking stuffers would be fair game...

    He told them, ‘You also go and WORK in my vineyard, and I will pay your whatever is right.’ Matt 20:4 How is it the ones who talk the most about freedom and being oppressed by a Conservative leader are now so willing to have their freedoms taken away by a liberal one? If it isn’t clear that liberalism equals communist dictatorship in the model of Mao and Stalin you could never light a fire by rubbing your brain cells together. These same people who were so concerned about national security when some secretary in the CIA basement was named...
  • Let's Raise Taxes! (Saturbray)

    “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire men to WORK in his vineyard. Matt 20:1 Since the public sector unions want to raise taxes on everybody it is time to take them up on it. Congress needs to double their tax rates so they can be more patriotic like they want the producers to be. This would immediately solve two major problems, eliminating part of the deficit and weed them out of the gummit. Since we are basically throwing money down a rat hole why don’t we tax them...

    THE RISING SEA DRAGON IN ASIA - 2012 UPDATE By Jeff Head - Last Update: June 15, 2012 (Click on any image for a larger picture) 2011 has seen significant increases in major combatant shipbuilding by the PLAN across the board. From the PLA Navy's first carrier being launched and sent to sea for trials, to continued testing and production of J-15 fighters for that carrier's airwing, to the increased tempo of serial production of the PLAN's Type 071 LPD, the Yuzhao Class (with a second and third unit launched and a fourth being built), to increased serial production...
  • BHO,you want to grant immunity to young illegals, while 50% young American remain unemployed

    Well it would seem after a bad week for President Obama, he and his officials have chosen to grant immunity to young illegals under the age of 30, who were brought here by their parents as children, the plan is suppose grant work visas to illegals who have GED, Diplomas and have served in the military. Now my question happens to be is, "What about those young Americans who have not been able to find work in the last 3 years, Mr. President you should be more concerned about them than pandering to the illegals!" As a American, who happens...

    How do you make money? A seemingly simple question, but it has serious ramifications. How you answer goes a long way towards your view on how the economy works and what must be done in order for the economy to thrive. Ostensibly, we all want to make money - to provide for ourselves and our families, to save for the future, to support good and worthy causes. Only the monks and Spartans among us seek not to do so. They view money as a hindrance at best and, at worst, evil. Understanding the process by which one makes money is...
  • Dem Polster Pat Caddell: Obama's Natl Security Advisor Tom Donilon IS The WH Secrets Leaker !

    On Hannity, Dem pollster Pat Caddell swears he absolutely knows from his sources who the WH secrets leaker is, and it is National Security Advisor Tom Donilon. Caddell, who is very well wired into all things Democratic in DC, said he thought there as no way Donilon would have done this without Obama's permission and perhaps instigation. He went on to describe Donilon as a "pure political hack" who has absolutely no experience or qualifications to be the NSA. Caddell" "Because of this hack, American friends are either dead, in prison or on the run. The Israelis are absolutely furious...

    I don't often put stories in "breaking." I post vanities even less often. Hardly anything surprises me any longer, but I find this absolutely astounding. If you follow the financial threads or the situation in Europe, you really need to read this. Actually anyone with a bank account needs to read this. I'm going to ask the mods to leave this here, unless they really feel I'm all wet here. I don't, however, believe I am. Follow me here. BNI (Bank Network Investments) is Italy's oldest and forth largest bank. In other words, it's a biggie. Anyway, the bank went...

    They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not LOVE their lives so much as to shrink from death. Rev 12:11 There is only one thing standing between America and full employment, its gummit. We have become a country where the people in the wagon has killed and eaten the horses. Now they sit in absolute amazement wondering why they aren't moving. This is the most anti-business administration in a long line of anti-business congress’ leaving an absolute wreck of an economy. Until we shove this wagon full of ingrates...

    shibumi's brain | 6/6/2012 | shibumi
    I personally like Sarah Palin quite a bit. Obviously she's an attractive woman. That never hurts for a start. Added to that, there is depth of character, exemplified by her choosing life for her most recent child and her successful marriage. These are qualities that drive the rabble on the left wild. Someone out there actually walks the walk that they talk. That said, I find myself frustrated over that cat and mouse game she has played with her non-candidacy on the heels of her abdication of the Alaskan Governorship. I suppose this came to mind today in the light...

Make sure you order a double at Starbucks this morning so you are ready for your day - you've got a lot of explaining to do.Let's talk about this whole recall thing - you know, that groundswell of the grassroots? I'm sure you're confused about the whole thing, but let me give you a hand with this. Let's talk about that difference in the campaign funds spent. Whether it is the sobbing activist on CNN crying that "Democracy is OVER!" or the official press release from the Obama Campaign,...

    Those whom I LOVE I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. Rev 3:19 My source inside the White House is saying the internal polls for Wisconsin done by the Obama campaign are absolutely disastrous. Most are not only showing a likely loss in November by the same margin but similar loses in both MN and MI leaving the campaign to wonder how and where to begin. My source says the results as well as the current disappointing turnouts of volunteers and cash are not only pointing to a loss but one that may rival some of the worst...

    ~ FReeper Canteen Presents ~ ~ D-DAY, June 6, 1944 ~ NORMANDY INVASION May 1944 had been chosen at the conference in Washington in May 1943 as the time for the invasion. Difficulties in assembling landing craft forced a postponement until June, but June 5 was fixed as the unalterable date by Eisenhower on May 17. As the day approached and troops began to embark for the crossing, bad weather set in, threatening dangerous landing conditions. After tense debate, Eisenhower and his subordinates decided on a 24-hour delay, requiring the recall of some ships already at sea. Eventually, on...

    DESPERATION! Winning at what cost; Will President Oboma, sacrifice American lives to win? We were told, in 2008, that Candidate Oboma represented a bridge to a future reconciliation of the races in our nation. That was then, and this is the reality.. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Oboma administration has, almost from the start of his term in office, purposely chosen to fracture our nation down race, gender, religious, and socioeconomic lines.. RACE Most recently, the administration has, with the aid of his loyalist in the mainstream media, and a cadre of the usual suspected race-baiters, elevated...

Rev 2:19 Oh how the Hope and Change Express has transformed into a rusting piece of scrap metal waiting its turn on the junkyard of histoir. The entire Bama campaign has come down to “it’s still Bush’ fault”. He acts like nobody notices how the H&C Express has failed to leave the station. When you run your entire campaign around change, people begin to expect change for the better not worse. Fortunately for America he never...

    The month of June, 2012 is about to dawn. The next 30 days will encompass a series of important events as only very few months in our country’s history have witnessed. These events, while as different as snowflakes, will intertwine in a way that will make their effects magnified in a manner that few can foresee today. Our country is in the midst of an important election season. In November, a President will be elected, one third of Senators will be elected, and all 435 members of the House will be elected. Additionally, there will be countless elections in the...

    Picture a scenario, where members of your family helped a new neighbor establish a household. Just after helping that neighbor, your family experienced a long illness which caused your entire family to be quarantined and your home foreclosed upon. Then, after several years, you were finally able to return home, plant a garden, and rebuild your family’s life. Just as your household was beginning to prosper again, a heavily armed neighbor named John Wayne Gacy took over your front yard. Instead of using his own house and its crawl space to commit his horrific crimes, he used your yard and...

    It can be argued, by mere observation, that Barack Obama has little fealty to America, and more fealty to certain concepts and ideologies. Those ideologies are Black Liberation Theology, of which he was a student in Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ for many decades; of global governance; and of socialism... perhaps even Marxism. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. One may readily discard a politicians words, and instead look to their works. The words are intended to mislead, and the works are intended to achieve. Obama's actions that show his loyalty to a very controversial view,...

    Barack Obama paid tribute to veterans of the Vietnam War with a Memorial Day speech at the Vietnam War Memorial and in an op-ed published in military oriented publications. Missing in action from the president's words of praise for the veterans was why they fought for over ten years in Southeast Asia: to defeat communism.A transcript of Obama's speech given at the Wall, as the memorial is commonly known, published at Fox News shows no mention of the words 'communism' or 'communist.' Nor is there mention that the veterans fought to keep South Vietnam, and by extension the whole of...
