  • 1% vs 99% ZOT

    I got a real bad feeling the 2nd Civil War may be coming soon. While the (1% millionaires and billionaires) continue to print Trillions of dollars and run off at the mouth on the radio and television while continuing to run the world by establishing themselves as the “FEW WHO CONTROL THE MASSES) it has all the elements for a bad outcome. As a conservative who has given much thought to what all is going on, it has become abundantly all too clear that the objective of the 1% Democrats and Republicans who are OWNED and DIRECTED by HUGE CORPORATIONS...

    Comparing and contrasting Newt and Mitt is a real eye-opener. The two men have taken very different paths in their personal and professional lives, and have wildly different personalities. Newt is a dreamer, Mitt a doer. Newt is reckless, Mitt is careful. Newt is famously undisciplined, Mitt is the epitome of self-discipline. Romney is a leader, Newt simply is not–according to those who worked most closely with him. Both men are intelligent, yet have chosen different ways to use their intelligence. In education, Romney pursued business and law, while Newt chose modern European History. Romney earned his education quickly and...

    Here is a video well worth watching. It's William Black, former lead prosecutor in the savings and loan crisis during the Reagan/Bush years, describing the background of the current financial crisis and the need for prosecution of those responsible in our banking and financial fields. Strangely enough, he's speaking at the Occupy LA site. In case the video is not viewable in this post, click the link below--well worth spending 15 minutes to watch it: LINKAfter watching this video, I think there is little that any of us here would disagree with.

    Apologies if this has already been postedAs you sit down with your family on Thanksgiving and consider offering a prayer of gratitude, be aware the turkey at the center of the table may have already been "blessed" – in the name of Allah. Customer service representatives from Butterball, one of America's most popular Turkey brands, confirmed to WND that the company's whole turkeys are – without being labeled as such – slaughtered according to Islamic "halal" standards. "Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus and the jugular vein and letting the blood drain out while saying, 'Bismillah allahu akbar'...

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), said the scandal exposes the continuing problem of homosexual predators in society. He offers the following observations related to the PSU scandal: Many openly homosexual (“gay”) men, like CNN anchor Don Lemon, were molested as...

    Ministry of Welfare Destroys Ethiopian Homes by R. D. Weisskopf, founder of the UnPromised Land channel Despite the widespread outcry against the Ministry of Welfare, senior management refused this week to fight corruption which has been deeply-entrenched in the Ministry of Welfare for over 30 years. One of the communities that has suffered most at the hands of the Ministry of Welfare are Ethiopian immigrants. According to the Jewish Agency, Ethiopians are less than 3% of Israel’s immigrant population while Ethiopian children represent 50% of the immigrant population under the Ministry of Welfare’s control. One of the many testimonies linked...
  • What to do with Romney?

    Hi everyone-- I'm a longtime lurker of FR and just signed up to get your feedback about a question I am sure many of us are asking ourselves. As a lifelong conservative, I am concerned about the possibility (probability?) of Mitt Romney receiving the GOP nomination for president next year. Many of my friends are convinced Romney will win the nomination, but I am very concerned that if he were to get into office, he would not stand up for the conservative policies we desperately need after the past four years. I want Obama out of office more than anything,...

    In November of 2010 in Don’t be VAT stupid Herman Cain writes: ``A national retail sales tax on top of all the confusing and unfair taxes we have today is insane! It gives the out-of-control bureaucrats and politicians in denial one more tool to lie, deceive, manipulate and destroy this country.`` The fact is, Herman is now proposing a new tax, a national retail sales tax, in addition to taxing corporate profits and incomes, and also would tax the wages working people earn. Herman Cain essentially admitted in the above mentioned article his existing plan is ``insane!`` So, why do...

    Okay, the creepiness is overwhelming. Mitt Romney strikes me as the guy who wants to be president so bad that his ambition overrides his intellect. During last night's debate it was the cheap shot fired at Perry "well you've had a couple of bad debates" and Romney's hand resting atop Perry's shoulder. But if you've followed all the debates as I have you will notice a repeat offender. There is simply no graciousness to the man. And I'm an avowed Palinista.

    Sorry the vanity, but I need help understanding the 999 plan. Since every thing I read tells me a national sales tax is really a VAT tax..can the plan be changed to a national sales tax on corporations only? Then add into law it can only be increased with a 2/3 majority. I am in no way an economist but I think 27% total tax is still way lower than what business is paying now...And in theory this would be something even the left would have to get behind..They asked for the rich to pay their share and this (in...

King Solomon The magnitude of the self-inflicted military disaster in Israel, is beyond words and its destructive potential against Israel and the Jewish people, is simply unimaginable. In a blatant abuse of power, Israel’s corrupt leadership finally got their way and took the country one more step into a national collective suicidal abyss. After five long years, IDF Sergeant Gilad Shalit, was released from the hands of his oppressors, militant Islamic terrorist group, Hamas, based in the Palestinian territories....

    Ron Paul said Wednesday that “the budget threat and the domestic economy is the biggest threat to our national security.” He also accused his Republican opponents as having "a lack of understanding of economics" in response to Newt Gingrich's charge that his plan to cut defense spending was "suicidally stupid." "Just think of how the economy brought the Soviets down on their knees," Paul said during an interview on Fox News. "They had all the military power they wanted but economically it was unsustainable and their empire collapsed so I would say that he is looking at the wrong problem...

    "In fact, Gingrich's growing support among moderates, as well as some conservatives, is so large that he finishes second to Cain in all four states, a surge that's almost as impressive as Cain's." "A "two-man" race? That's how many pundits described the Republican contest just a couple of weeks ago. But with Cain and Gingrich the only two GOP candidates rapidly increasing their voter support, it's no longer Romney and Perry who can claim that mantle."

    (Oct. 1, 2011) — By now most Americans should realize that Barack Obama is an empty suit, an individual totally unprepared for the responsibilities of the Presidency, but shaped and directed by others to undermine traditional American values, disrupt the economy and instigate class and racial conflict, all in order to make the United States vulnerable to control by international ideologies. Obama’s philosophy and behavior are consistent with the aims of Marxists like Bill Ayers, “open society” financial predators like George Soros and anti-democratic movements like Islamic fundamentalism. Their common aim is to reduce American power and influence, which now...

    The Energy Department on Wednesday approved two loan guarantees worth more than $1 billion for solar energy projects in Nevada and Arizona, two days before the expiration date of a program that has become a rallying cry for Republican critics of the Obama administration's green energy program. Energy Secretary Steven Chu said the department has completed a $737 million loan guarantee to Tonopah Solar Energy for a 110 megawatt solar tower on federal land near Tonopah, Nev., and a $337 million guarantee for Mesquite Solar 1 to develop a 150 megawatt solar plant near Phoenix. The loans were approved under...

    We all know the Republican Party has changed in recent years. Tommy Thompson's bid for the U.S. Senate may tell us how much. On Monday, Thompson will incorporate his Senate campaign committee, he said in an interview. That allows him to start raising money, and means a filing of candidacy should follow by early next month. But the real personal and political drama will unfold in the months to come, as the former titan of Wisconsin politics makes his case for a comeback, and deals with questions from conservatives within his own party. "I'm the original conservative," said Thompson on...
