  • Who's The Real Threat: Ted Nugent or Barack Obama?

    04/21/2012 3:45:26 PM PDT · by xuberalles · 7 replies
    So the Army cancels Ted Nugent's concert at Fort Knox, citing a conflict of interest over his recent comments. How ironic being I'd wager that 80% of our military, if not higher, can't stand Obama and share Nugent's sentiments. Obviously this decision was forced upon military leaders via the Oval Office as an attempt to discredit Nugent and paint him as yet another Tea Party radical. Sadly, Ted probably cares more for our fighting men and women than our Marxist in Chief. I guess the fact that Al Sharpton promised violence over the Trayvon Martin case - which hadn't even...

    So You Want To Vote, Eh? Pick your poison. One is marked "Arsenic", the other "Cyanide": A firm that was one of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s top financial boosters in March is owned by a former Fidelity Investments trader who settled a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation in 2008. Seaspray Partners LLC of Palm Beach, Florida, gave $400,000 on March 1 to Restore Our Future, a political action committee that supports Romney, according to a report filed yesterday with the Federal Election Commission. It was the sixth-largest gift last month to the super-PAC backing the former Massachusetts governor....

    Convinced that unfettered freedom of speech is destroying our democracy, congressional Democrats are proposing that the First Amendment of the US Constitution be, itself, amended. “As it stands right now, the Constitution says that Congress shall make no law abridging freedom of speech,” complained Representative Jim McGovern (D-Mass), co-sponsor of the proposed amendment. “Well, we want to make a law, we need to make a law that puts clamps on unwarranted criticism of the government.” The proposed amendment is seen as necessary to protect the pending DISCLOSE Act from possibly being overturned by the Supreme Court. This Act would require...

    The United Nations is holding its’ “Conference on Sustainable Development” in Rio de Janero, Brazil, over three separate sessions in June, to which organizers, led by UN Conference Secretary-General of Rio+20, Sha Zukang [who 'really doesn't like Americans'], expect 193 attendees from governments, the private sector, NGOs and other stakeholders, according to the Sarah de Sainte Croix March 20, 2012 article in The Rio Times. The stated themes of this colossal conference, which is structured around a 204-page report titled, “Working Towards a Balanced and Inclusive Green Economy, A United Nations System-Wide Perspective,” are “the green economy in the context...

    In the Republican primaries, one by one an excellent slate of pretenders fell to blunders and/or well-funded partisan attacks. Money created the dominance of Mitt Romney over Rick Santorum. Rick stayed in the race in spite of being outspent 8 to 1. This GOP primary revealed the spread of preferences in Republican ranks, from RINO to Tea Party. That’s good if the Party has sense enough to use its best weapons. Missing so far is a strong Hispanic presence that is available – over 63% refer to themselves as conservative or moderate. In the 2010 elections the day was carried...

    Actual Title: Articulate Conservative Andy Shaw Challenges Planned Parenthood's Favorite State Senator Pat Vance in GOP PrimaryState Senator Pat Vance is one of the finest representatives of the “establishment Republicans” who are willing to sound so very conservative when facing primary elections but who tack to the left when they are safely reelected. In fact, Senator Pat Vance gets along especially well with those who values voter oriented conservatives don’t hold in the highest regard. The incumbent’s rather nice and comfortable remarks (at a GOP forum in York, PA) were in rather marked contrast with those of Andy Shaw who...

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews wondered whether it would be racist for voters to oust Barack Obama from the presidency. “When he was running in 2008 there was some speculation that not voting for him could be construed as racist,” Matthews remembered. “Then he was only a candidate with little political experience. Now, though, he has three plus years as president under his belt. He has the executive experience he lacked in 2008. And incumbents are generally reelected. If he gets bounced by someone who has no presidential experience wouldn’t that be even more racist?” Matthews further suggested that “to judge him...

    You can tell they are desperate in Chicago at Obama reelection headquarters. After 3+ years of abject failure, Obama supporters could use a little encouragement. Signs that the guy who scorns those who cling to the guns and religion enjoys some sort of blessing. No need for God to be involved. The search for omens ends up in a glass of beer. And not the usual way, either. Check out this email blast from the campaign:

    Don't you just love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning? Having criticized her Republican opponent for voting against a millionaires' tax measure, U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren said here Friday that she opted not to pay a voluntary higher tax rate in Massachusetts. "I paid my taxes, and I did not make a charitable contribution to the state," Warren, who worked with the Obama administration to create the new consumer financial protection bureau, said when asked if she paid a 5.85 percent state income tax instead of the standard 5.3 percent -- a choice given to Massachusetts taxpayers....

    Imagine if the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights hired the former spokesman for the National Socialist Movement, the nation’s largest neo-Nazi organization, to be its deputy director for public affairs. It would be the moral equivalent of the decision by the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services to hire the former mouthpiece for Planned Parenthood, which aborts nearly 300,000 unborn children each year, to be its new Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs. HHS waited until near the close of business yesterday to announce that Tait Sye, who spent four and a half years defending Planned Parenthood’s yearly...

    Seventy years ago this week sixteen Army Air Force B-25 Mitchells took off from the heaving deck of the Navy’s aircraft carrier USS Hornet. This was the first time in the Second World War that America took the fight to the enemy. The raiders who were led by Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle, struck Japan in a demonstration ofAmerica’s determination to take the fight to Japan’s home soil. This raid was a morale booster for a nation that was still recovering from the attack onPearl Harbor. The concept of launching medium bombers from a carrier was conceived by Navy Captain Francis...

    Robert Wiedrich, "one of the original watchdog reporters who went after Chicago's corrupt politicians and mobsters," died at the age of 85 last Saturday as reported by Erin Meyer for the Chicago Tribune. Wiedrich was born to investigate wise guys and dirty cops. The veteran reporter from The Chicago Tribune recently published his memoir Windy City Watchdog, and his nose for news was evident even as a boy growing up during the depression on the Near North Side when Al Capone still ruled the town. He recounts as a kid watching a steady parade of men using a back staircase...

On Planet Earth, he came into the courtroom much as you would expect a man who had not wanted to be in a lethal confrontation and did not spend his time licking his chops at the prospect of killing a black teenager. On Planet Liberal this was supposed to be some inverse version of To Kill a Mockingbird, A Time to Kill and every other of the numerous entries in that genre. On Planet Earth, it's looking like a weak case with an incompetent and unethical prosecutor...
