  • Staying away from ALL news programs today (best comment on the inauguration)

    Most Americans don’t know this – but then this is a country that did reelect Obama – that Dear Ruler was sworn in for his second term yesterday. The Constitution says he’s to be sworn in on the 20th, and that’s probably the only part of the Constitution that Obama wants to stringently adhere to. But there was a grand opportunity for Obama --- he could delay the inauguration until today, the day of the official holiday for Martin Luther King Jr. After all! How could he resist! I would love to see someone figure out how much it cost...
  • President Obama Should Ban Fires

    RedNationRising.com Twitter: @RedNation2016 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RedNation2016 Email: rednationrising@gmail.com A house in my area recently burned down. In fact, a lot of houses around the United States have burned down. Some of the fires have been on purpose, others on accident. Regardless, why hasn’t Congress and the President gotten involved and solved this issue? Is it too much to ask to ban fire, at least massive fire? I can walk in to any gas station in fact and buy matches and a few gallons of fuel and the cashier would not even ask for an I.D. or any sort of permits. No...

    “On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord. On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics.” President Barack Obama spoke these words four years ago to a captive nation -- a nation that believed hope could lead to change they could believe in. Change did indeed come to America, but not the change many people envisioned. While we may have a lot of new laws (and debt)...

    Obama's 2009 inauguration was bolstered by the feelings of "hope and change" that boosted the President to electoral victory. His official inauguration committee eschewed corporate donations back then, but times have changed dramatically. The Presidential Inauguration Committee set a goal of raising $50 million for Barack Obama's second inauguration, but have turned to big corporations and big labor unions in order to make it there. AT&T, Bank of America, FedEx, Microsoft and Coca-Cola are all on the official list of inauguration donors this year. Joining those corporations are the American Federation of Government Employees, the American Postal Workers Union, the...

    Ideas to starve obama and his obots - obama/big gov sucks the blood out of us productive people to give to his obots to buy their votes. It is time we turn the table on them! We, the business owners, the employers, the gainfully employed, the consumers, hold the purse strings. We must control the purse strings to starve them and bring them to their knees - Business owners - charge the obots more for goods and services - reasonable since they are the ones that support obama's policies/regulations to raise costs to do business. Employers - when need to...

And he he has a very different job from Reagan was all about America, and he talked about it. Obama is 'we are above that now.' We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something - I mean, in a way Obama's standing above the country, above above the world, he's sort of God." "Yeah,"...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 01/21/2013
    WASHINGTON -- Four years after making history by becoming the first African-American president, Barack Obama will kick off his second term on Monday with a scaled-back inauguration that reflects the tempered expectations for his next four years in office. Lingering high unemployment, bitter political battles and a divisive re-election campaign have punctured the mood of optimism and hope that infused Obama's 2009 inauguration after a sweeping election win. This time, Obama's inauguration will feature smaller crowds and a reduced slate of inaugural balls and parties to match the more subdued tenor of the times. When Obama raises his right hand...

    Today we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. Isn’t it odd, with all of the great quotes from him, that we rarely hear many of them referenced. “Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.” “History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.” “Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.” “The time is always right to do what is right.” “Our lives begin to...

    Rapper Lupe Fiasco was thrown offstage and escorted off the premises of a Washington, D.C. concert hall during a pre-inauguration concert Sunday night, after going on an anti-war, anti-Obama rant, according to concertgoers. Josh Rogin, a reporter with Foreign Policy magazine, tweeted late Sunday, “Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set.” “So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn’t vote for Obama,” he continued, ”and eventually was told to move on to the next song…Lupe refused to move to the next...

    During the past week, whenever I found myself alone in the car during good drive-time talk radio (i.e., Rush), I did something unusual: I didn’t listen. Instead, I turned to mindless pop music. I was thinking about this peculiar behavior on my part, because I truly love Rush. I think he’s a radio genius, someone who understands perfectly the lines between entertainment, news, and analysis. He’s also one of the sharpest political thinkers out there. No wonder the Left hates him. But still…. I didn’t want to listen. Analyzing my bizarre retreat from Rush, I realized that my problem is...
  • Andrea Mitchell Confounded By NRA's 'Surprising' popularity in New Poll - 41%

    A perplexed Andrea Mitchell on Thursday highlighted a new NBC poll finding high favorability numbers for the National Rifle Association, results she deemed "surprising." The veteran journalist proclaimed: "The NRA brand has been fairly toxic in many of the debates, the gun debates especially since Newtown, but their membership base is broad and deep." One reason the brand has been "toxic" is because of relentlessly negative coverage from reporters. Yet, NBC political editor Mark Murray explained, "Despite a lot of the criticism the NRA has received in the month after the Newtown shootings, the NRA has a 41 percent favorable...

    To think that twenty young children massacred in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14 would become catalysts to accelerate the continuing disintegration of American society was unconscionable on December 14th - and it remains unconscionable. While the nation fell into shock followed by grief, many wrote on the web, "Obama's gonna take away guns!" The narcissism of "2nd Amen" cultists is without boundaries it appears; to wit: the NRA rallies. The goal to divert attention away from those child victims of guns in order to refocus it on themselves (the firearms industry and their plebian Constitutionalists), to protecting gun-owner "rights" and...

    Let’s pretend that in the spring of 2012 Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform, John Engler of the Business Roundtable, Tim Phillips of Americans for Prosperity, and Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association began to organize an assembly of right-leaning groups. Let’s pretend that in the months since there had been not one but two meetings where these luminaries joined with representatives of Christians United For Israel, the American Enterprise Institute, the Heritage Foundation, the Tea Party Express, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, and the American Petroleum Institute to discuss strategy and promote a series of “structural...

    This matters in a political battle and the NRA can take advantage of there popularity relative to Obama with any wavering members. Newsbusters: Despite constant hammering by the national news media, the National Rifle Association has a favorability rating of 54 percent in the latest Gallup survey, slightly higher than President Obama's rating of 53 percent. While those figures are within the poll's margin of error, they show that the NRA's popularity is in the same range as that of the Democratic president who issued 23 executive orders to accomplish goals the gun-rights group has promised to combat in "the...

    New Geography ^ | January 18, 2013 | Joel Kotkin
    When President Obama takes the oath of office for the second time, he will also usher in a new era in American power politics. Whereas the old left-wing definition of “who rules” focused on large corporations, banks, energy companies and agribusinesses, the Obama-era power structure represents a major transformation. This shift stems, in large part, from the movement from a predominately resource and tangible goods-based economy to an information-based one. In the past, political struggles were largely fought over how to divide up the spoils generated by the basic productive economy; labor, investors and management all shared a belief in...
