  • Bob Beckel's F-Bomb and those angry liberals

    04/18/2012 7:45:32 PM PDT · by Marketfly1 · 15 replies ^ | April 18, 2012 | Jeff Crouere
    Such a mindset was on display last night on the Fox News television show “Hannity.” A liberal guest, Bob Beckel, dropped the “F bomb.” He was caught off guard when the show returned from a commercial break. He had been in a heated argument with two conservative guests who joined him on the program. Beckel’s outburst is typical of the angry liberals we see so often in the media... The Beckel outburst is another chance for Americans to gain an insight into the mind of a hardcore liberal. As we can plainly see, it is not a pretty sight.
  • Can we get back to the basic question? What should government do?

    04/18/2012 4:29:47 PM PDT · by Mark Landsbaum · 4 replies
    The Tea Party movement did the nation a great service in 2010 by focusing on the problem behind much of what’s gone wrong in America: government, and too much of it. It’s refreshing to see that the sentiment lingers about this nation under God dedicated to preserving our God-given rights. “Voters believe too much government power is a dangerous thing and put a very high value on protecting the rights of the individual,” says ...
  • Grierson's Raid

    Starting from La Grange, Tennessee, Grierson’s aim was to reach the Southern Railroad of Mississippi, and destroy as much of it as possible. From there he could either return to La Grange, or head south to the Union position at Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He started with three regiments, some 1,700 men. One of the reasons for his success was that he was willing to split this force. He began on 20 April, sending 175 men (what he called the “least effective portion of the command”) back to La Grange, with orders to make it look at if the entire expedition...
  • Fake Conservatives As Dangerous To Freedom As Obama

    04/18/2012 9:45:50 AM PDT · by Errant · 36 replies ^ | 18 April 2012 | Brandon Smith
    If Americans are looking for anything in the dark clouds of political dust and powdered ash that choke our air and leave us feeling naked against the elements, it is but a simple moment of sincerity. It sounds like an easily attainable thing, and yet, we continue to gasp and clamor. The visible surface of our nation is so devoid of honest connection with our social voice that we have turned to a cynical form of loneliness. We have embraced a life without clarity, and been made wretchedly bitter, desperate for even the faintest taste of truth.
  • Attorney Larry Klayman's Statement on Florida Ballot Challenge Filed Against Barack Obama

    "Attorney Larry Klayman's Statement on Florida Ballot Challenge Filed Against Barack Obama Via Email Statement by Larry Klayman, Esq. on Florida Ballot Challenge Mr. Klayman, Founder of Judicial Watch, Freedom Watch and the only one to ever successfully sue a sitting President, is representing Mike Voeltz, of Plantation, FL in his “Obama” ballot challenge. I took this case on in my private capacity because it is at the epicenter of not only a major Constitutional crisis, but one of which most people are completely unaware, or they have allowed themselves to be convinced is merely a ‘sideshow’ promoted by ‘carnival...
  • Paul Revere's Ride

    04/17/2012 3:26:39 PM PDT · by NEWwoman · 11 replies ^ | April 15, 2012 | smithsk
    The Shot heard around the World! This phrase has come to represent the beginning of many historical events - like the American Revolution (1775 - 1783). And its genesis can be traced to Ralph Waldo Emerson's Concord Hymn - "Here once the embattled farmers stood, And fired the shot heard round the world ..." Emerson words immortalized the American Minutemen resistance to the British forces back in 1775, as the British were on a mission to seize and destroy the American militia ammunition and weapons. Emerson's poem marks the Battle of Lexington and Concord (April 19, 1775), the start of...
  • April 10, 1941: A Dark Day In History

    04/17/2012 2:43:07 PM PDT · by Ravnagora · 4 replies ^ | April 17, 2012 | Srdja Trifkovic
    Aleksandra's Note: While this excellent analysis by Srdja Trifkovic focuses on the "internal" history of Croatia, it is important to note that four days after Nazi Germany declared war on the United States, Hitler's staunch ally the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) declared war on both the United Kingdom and on the United States on December 14, 1941. What makes this especially significant is that less than three years later, on April 16, 1944, which was Easter Sunday for the Serbian Orthodox, the Anglo-American forces bombed Belgrade, the capital of their loyal and devoted ally Serbia, even though there was...

    The White House ^ | 04/13/2012 | Barack Obama
    Because efforts to promote safe, responsible, and efficient development of unconventional domestic natural gas resources are underway at a number of executive departments and agencies (agencies), close interagency coordination is important for effective implementation of these programs and activities. To formalize and promote ongoing interagency coordination, this order establishes a high-level, interagency working group that will facilitate coordinated Administration policy efforts to support safe and responsible unconventional domestic natural gas development.
  • You My Friend are No Ronald reagan

    04/15/2012 5:19:50 AM PDT · by ShelleyAa · 4 replies
    You My Friend Are No Ronald Reagan! Current events suggest President Obama is to be thought of as, "Reagan - like." For many with strong remembrance of President Ronald Reagan, Obama cannot compare. History will remind us that President Reagan, "The Great Communicator,"continually conveyed love of country; it's people and history. He strived to bring us together, having pride in country and gratitude for its blessings. Whereas, Obama, with arrogance, has pushed an unsolicited agenda, purposefully, rewrote history, shown contempt for nation with his "apology tour,"and avoided acknowledgment of, "The City on the Hill." President Reagan stood with conviction for...

    There is a global spiritual and ideological war going on, which most people are not aware of. The purpose of this war is power, power to rule the world. Marxism is the mother philosophy for Socialism, Communism, National Socialism, and also for Islamic Terrorism. The Bible and Christian Teachings stay in the way of the totalitarian global Marxist formations and the battle has been raging to push God out of human societies. “You may pray and sing hymns in your homes and churches as much as you like,” we youngsters were told by the Nazis, “but in society we alone...

    Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) says she is confident she will regain the gavel when Democrats sweep the November elections. “Just looking at the top of the ticket has to give every Democrat a sense of optimism,” Pelosi crowed. “On the GOP side we have Mitt Romney—a man who virtually imprisoned his own wife, kept her from seeking gainful employment and used her to breed five children—all sons, mind you. Are women going to vote for this kind of misogynist or are they going to appreciate that before he was president Senator Obama helped his wife get a $300,000...

    Island Turtle ^ | April 13, 2012 | Corky Boyd
    Gateway Pundit carries an interview of Janet Murgula, President of La Raza, on Keeping it Real with Reverend Al Sharpton (guest host Andre Eggelletion). The gist of the conversation is Hispanics and blacks should join forces to address common “problems.” It is curious why such a conversation is taking place at the height of the Trayvon Martin issue. It seems the controversy is now driving a wedge between Hispanics and blacks. Janet Murgula wouldn't have made her statement otherwise. The friction has long been there. Look at the street gangs of Los Angeles, look at the prison gangs. They are...

    On Easter Sunday, 2012, a series of car bombs exploded, killing at least 38 and wounding hundreds, as stained glass shattered and brick and mortar rained down upon the congregants – in and around the All Nations Christian Assembly Church and the ECWA Good News Church, in Kaduna, Nigeria. On Christmas Day, 2011, a similar bombing killed 44 (and injured hundreds more) at a Catholic church in Madalla, Nigeria. North of the Sahara, far too many bombings to count have rocked the churches of North Africa, particularly those of the ten million plus terrified Coptic Christians in Egypt, since the...

    The Obama administration has just proven its utter failure in foreign policy. It had negotiated an agreement with the North Korea that in exchange for food it would give up its uranium enrichment program, allow IAEA inspectors into the Yongbyong facilities, halt missile tests and cease nuclear weapons tests. It is now 43 days since the agreement was inked and in that short period of time North Korea has announced plans to launch a satellite with missile based technology (a lightly veiled test of its long range Taepodong-2) and begun preparations for an underground nuclear detonation. This sets the record...

    Stumping for his “Buffett Rule” tax increase in Florida today, President Barack Obama said the following: “For those people who make under $250,000 a year – like 98 percent of American families do – then your taxes don’t go up.” – Barack Obama, April 10, 2012 But since taking office, President Obama has signed into law at least seven new or higher taxes on families making less than $250,000 per year. President Barack Obama’s central campaign promise – a “firm pledge” against “any form of tax increase” on families making less than $250,000 per year – was shattered when he...

    Hoover may have had a knack for routing out commies but he was pretty useless in taking on Albert Anastasia as reflected in the FBI's sparse files on the notorious mobster who infamously was whacked in a barber's chair at the Park Sheraton Hotel in midtown Manhattan on October 25, 1957. Anastasia orchestrated dozens of hits as the head of Murder, Inc. during the Prohibition years, later ran the crime family which gave rise to Carlo Gambino, made a fortune from loansharking, gambling and other enterprises which he laundered through the garment industry, and controlled the Brooklyn waterfront through the...

    The Republican leadership in Congress will not be investigating Obama’s Constitutional eligibility problem according to a leak out of a closed door meeting of top GOP rulers. This is according to a commenter who had just read a post about Obama’s father being born in Kenya. They made this decision in a high stakes closed door meeting and are giving their rank and file members talking points …… high gas prices; getting Americans back to work. Ironic indeed is a new video surfacing of the November 5, 2008, session of the Kenyan Parliament which reveals then Senator Barrack (their spelling)...

    An American historian is “not happy” to have been quoted prominently on, a Web site set up by the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed the unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida. As The Lede reported on Tuesday, the bare-bones Web site apparently controlled by the gunman, George Zimmerman, features a link to a PayPal account for donations, an American flag and quotes from writers — including Edmund Burke, Thomas Paine, Henrik Ibsen and James W. Loewen, an American sociologist and historian. The quote from Mr. Loewen is an observation made in his book, “Lies My Teacher Told...
