    President Obama, claiming his election "majority" was a vindication of his fiscal policy, held firm Friday to his intention to include tax hikes for America's top earners in any negotiations with Congress to pull the nation back from the so-called "fiscal cliff." The president, in his first remarks from Washington since winning a second term, urged officials to "get to work" on the issue as he invited congressional leaders to the White House next week. He said he's open to "compromise," but did not appear to budge on what has been a central disagreement over the last two years --...
  • Someone please expose "The Democrat Ground Game"

    11/09/2012 12:27:09 PM PST · by HalTa · 56 replies
    When Romney was ahead in the polls {Gallup, Rasmussen} by 5 to 6%, the democrat strategists showed no concern. I don't know how many times that I heard "Mumbles" Beckel brag that the democrat "ground game" was so superior they would squash Romney. Romney had absolutely no chance of defeating Obama. Why were they so positive of Romney's defeat? Could it be that Beckel and his cohorts already new of the massive voter fraud already in place in every battleground state? Of course, the answer is YES. The next question is, what are the Republicans and all patriotic Americans going...

    Wisconsin's Tammy Baldwin. MADISON, November 8, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – On Tuesday night, Wisconsin’s Tammy Baldwin became the first openly homosexual candidate to be elected to the U.S. Senate.  “Having a seat at the table matters and I think we will see a Senate that is more reflective of America. We’re certainly not there yet, but this will be a change that moves us forward,” Baldwin said after the election. Homosexual activists celebrated her victory, which coincided with successful initiatives in three states to change the definition of marriage.  “This is a big day for gay women in America, and really,...

    Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus has resigned, citing an extra-marital affair, NBC News reported. "Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House and asked the President to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position," Petraeus said in his resignation letter. "After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours."

    Romneys Get Out the Vote Fiasco Bethany Mandel 11.09.2012 The Wednesday before the election, Mitt Romney sent a special message to volunteers about a special project his campaign was working on: With state of the art technology and an extremely dedicated group of volunteers, our campaign will have an unprecedented advantage on election day. What is it they say about something that sounds too good to be true? It probably is. That was the case with the Romney campaigns Project ORCA. The idea behind Project ORCA was simple, albeit far too complex in execution. Romneys Boston headquarters wanted a way...

    Nearly two-thirds of employers expect to see a cost hike in their health plans when the Affordable Care Act goes into effect in 2014, according to new data from the consulting firm Mercer. Employers in the restaurant and retail industries -- those with a large number of hourly wage workers who traditionally had minimal or no health insurance -- are more likely than other companies to drop their health plans or cut worker's hours in order to maintain their already slim profit margins. According to a Mercer survey of 1,203 employers, nearly half of retail and hospitality employers expect the...

  • U.S. Employment Discrimination Law Does Not Include Party Affiliation

    Obama wanted his voters to seek revenge. What is fair for their side should be fair for our side. The U.S. Employment Discrimination Law covers, Race, Sex, Pregnancy, Religion, National Origin, Disability, Age, Military Affiliation, Bankruptcy, Genetic Info, and Citizenship. It does not cover party affiliation. If you have a business and you don't want any commie Democrats working for you, you should have the right to advertise "Democrats Need Not Apply". And if they lie to get hired, you should have the right to fire them at the first sign that they are a liberal Democrat.

    A newly energized President Barack Obama told the public in his first address since Tuesdays election that he was doubling down on his ultimatum to block any fiscal reform proposal that did not raise taxes on top-earning Americans. With Congress poised to tumble off a fiscal cliff composed of sequester budget cuts and expiring tax breaks on the first of next year, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has taken a conciliatory tone, saying House Republicans would work under the presidents leadership to find compromise...

    I am an immigrant from a formerly socialist country who now lives in Palm Desert. I arrived in the United States on March 12, 1974. It's been a long journey. If you had my background, you would understand my concerns for the seeping of socialist policies into the laws of our great country, the "Land of the Free." Here is a piece I wrote regarding how seemingly "nice," "just," and politically correct ideas can be unfair and jeopardize freedom itself. I originally wrote the following essay on March 29, 2010 examining the merits of FDR's Second Bill of Rights -...

    When 23-month-old Lucie Linforth became ill earlier this month with a fever and what her parents thought might be a chest infection, her father took her to their family doctor. While they say she looked "extremely poorly" and her lips were turning blue, the receptionist told them to wait. And wait they did -- for more than hour. According to the girl's father, Eric Linforth, 33, he went up to the reception desk four or five times during a 70-minute period of time, and was told to sit back down without anyone even giving his daughter a glance. At one...
