  • Rep. Shelia Lee, Read Your History!

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Democrat from Texas, showed us all just how utterly stupid our “representatives” are. This moron doesn’t represent me and you. This video reminds me of those episodes of Jay Leno, where he goes out on the street and asks people questions about history. In this video, Representative Lee talks about North and South Vietnam. She speaks of how they are living side-by-side today. She talks about..huh? There is no north or south…only Vietnam. Maybe someone should tell this idiot that the war there has long been over. Or maybe…just maybe…she was referring to the United...

    This week brought us a Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-umb) twin-spin of lunacy, race hustling and a dose of geographic ignorance. Jackson Lee, who continues to champion the cause of securing American women the same rights that women in China, Algeria, Afghanistan and Rwanda enjoy (okay American ladies, altogether now, “Thanks Sheila!”), was in typical form at the NAACP convention this week. The convention was held in Kansas City, which of course isn’t far from Omaha — home of the beach where D-Day began after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor. If possible, support Sheila Jackson Lee’s opponent, John Faulk.

    Yesterday was a glorious one for the movement. Nikki Haley won in South Carolina - which really wasn't a surprise. Gresham Barrett embarrassed himself by even staying in the race, but I suppose it was even more entertaining that way... Utah was a less certain situation. In the absence of any credible polling, no one really had a handle on how either candidate was doing. Mike Lee had a great week going in. Everyone on the ground had anecdotal input...which means exactly nothing when the numbers start coming in. Mike Lee is a solid small government candidate. There was a...

    The canceling of a conservative radio show is being tied to Mike Lee and EnergySolutions, and Lee's opponent is pulling all advertising from the station because of it. Talk show host Bob Lonsberry lost his 10-year-old KNRS morning show on Wednesday due to what his employer said was poor ratings. "His audience numbers were going down," said station general manager Stu Stanek. He said listeners were also asking why the station was delaying Glenn Beck's show until after the drive time. With Lonsberry's contract coming due in a few months, they decided to make changes, Stanek said. But Lonsberry and...

    Two members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) wrote a letter to President Barack Obama on Friday in which they called "for a lifting of the blockade on Gaza" in the wake of an attempt to break it this week. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the CBC, and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), one of two Muslim members of Congress, said that the blockade has helped contribute to a humanitarian crisis in Gaza. "The United States must also work with its allies to address the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Gaza," they wrote. "Recent events are undoubtedly linked to the...

He's made some very unpopular moves, like supporting the TARP bailout, but his ACU rating has been quite high. Nonetheless, I've been rather excited to see the RINO hunters so successful that they can move down to what I would have guessed was a low priority target.

    The Obama Era has become a protracted, nightmarish Whack-A-Mole game of tax increases and bureaucratic self-enlargement. In sector after sector of American life, another scheme to expand government and wrench more earnings from Americans' pockets pops up. Its next targeted sector? The Internet. Take a look at the following introduction of a nationwide tax upon Internet goods and services, inserted within page 58 of the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) National Broadband Plan released this week:

    Not so fast, dear libertarian friends and fellow fans of guns. Steve Lee is actually a proponent of government-defined gun control, as long as he can have his guns as “toys” to blow up cars. Here is an interview with Steve exclaiming the goodness of Australia’s oppressive gun control laws. Steve dear – most of us, especially those of us living in high-crime areas of the United States, actually prefer to exercise our natural right of self-defense as versus collecting guns as toys and shooting at cars with rocket launchers.

Barbara Lee and Lynn Woolsey said in a joint statement Wednesday. “For Congress to achieve true health care reform we must have a meaningful conference process that integrates...

Statewide, Florida has a an unemployment rate of 10.6 percent for June, up from 10.3 percent for May. The last time the state's unemployment rate was higher than June 2009 was October 1975 when it was 11 percent.

The journalists were detained in March near the...

    THROW AWAY THE SCABBARD What if Stonewall Jackson had survived Chancellorsville? In this alternate history, Jackson survives Chancellorsville. With Jackson leading his Second Corps in an invasion of the North, the war shifts from the Virginia wilderness to the Pennsylvania countryside. After the Army of Northern Virginia wins a stunning victory on the banks of the Susquehanna, General Ulysses S. Grant comes east to drive the Confederates from northern soil. But when Grant fails to dislodge Lee's army, President Abraham Lincoln risks all in a desperate attempt to win the war and restore the Union. Throw Away the Scabbard is...

    Filmmaker Spike Lee led the call for celebrities to join a boycott of the New York Post Friday during a raucous protest of a racially charged cartoon. Joined by his 11-year-old son, Lee told a crowd of about 300 people that he has bought the tabloid in the past - but no more. And he suggested athletes and entertainers shun the paper's writers because of Wednesday's cartoon, which compared President Obama with a crazed chimp by some interpretations. "This is not the end," Lee told the demonstrators, who marched in front of the Post's offices near Rockefeller Center shouting, "Shut...

    It's really funny to read and observe those who believe they're the smartest people in the room when it comes to historical interpretation. Modern historians like for everyone to believe that studying history is akin to rocket science. Arrogance is so blinding. The faddish altar at which many CW historians are now worshiping has been christened "memory." Actually, it's a good concept--and a biblical one. The word "remember" is used 148 times in Scripture. It's important for a whole host of reasons. Scripturally, God wants us to remember His works in past generations, the consequences of rebellion, and the wisdom...

    Initially sparked by the conversion of [West Point] Cadet Leonidas Polk, the revival would impact a number of other cadets as well, including Robert E. Lee, Albert Sydney Johnston, Joseph E. Johnson, and Jefferson Davis. The story has lots of fascinating twists and turns—too numerous and involved for a blog post—but one of the most interesting aspects of this revival was the conversion of a cadet by the name of Martin Parks. . .
  • Hillary as Lincoln? Barack as Lee? [Barf Alert!]

    The bloodiest and most significant battle of the American Civil War took place in Pennsylvania. At the outset of that conflict, the forces of the North - greater in number and better armed - were regarded as the overwhelming favourites to win the struggle. Yet they were outsmarted by the charismatic General Robert E. Lee, who proved to be more imaginative in the field, inspiring passionate loyalty in his Confederate soldiers. A bemused Abraham Lincoln was reduced to hiring and firing his generals and constantly reshaping his strategy. By July 1863, it seemed as if the Confederates might storm Washington...

    So, did the “Obama Girl” actually vote for Barack Obama on Tuesday? Actually, no. Last summer, the amateur music video “I Got a Crush on Obama” was a Web hit, splashing a seductive performance by a 26-year-old model named Amber Lee Ettinger across millions of screens and prompting deep thoughts about candidates and sex appeal, the YouTube generation of voters, viral marketing and so forth. On Tuesday night, City Room ran into Ms. Ettinger at an election-watching party in Greenwich Village and asked how things went at the polls. “I didn’t get a chance to vote today because I’m not...

Actually, no. ...On Tuesday night, City Room ran into Ms. Ettinger at an election-watching party in Greenwich Village and asked how things went at the polls. “I didn’t get a chance to vote today because I’m not registered to vote in New York,” she said. So where is Obama Girl registered to vote? “New Jersey.” Um, but didn’t New Jersey also hold a primary? True. The problem, she explained, was that she was sick in New York City and was unable to get back across the Hudson River...
