    "The reason is, that's freedom, freedom of speech. In American you have a right to be stupid - if you want to be," he said, prompting laughter. "And you have a right to be disconnected to somebody else if you want to be. "And we tolerate it. We somehow make it through that. Now, I think that's a virtue. I think that's something worth fighting for," he added.
  • LET THE LEFTISTS HAVE IT ALL

    I am going to try to say this without too much rambling. Last night driving home, I turned on the radio to listen to Mark Levin. He is in the middle of his rant against McDonnell of Virginia. He then talks about Scott of Florida and lists the Repub governors who have now accepted Obamacare. A few of those governors were Tea Party favorites – McDonnell, Scott, Brewer, Kasich, Martinez. It seemed so depressing. Every time we turn around, this guy in the White House continues to win his goals while our beliefs are constantly undermined. This Lent, I have...

    Brief and Direct: Why are Firemen Always the First To Be Laid Off? After garbage workers, that is. By: Flagstaff (Diary) | February 25th, 2013 at 08:33 Maybe because we’ll miss them the most. Because the President has forgotten he’s already been elected and he’s been campaigning across the country to defeat his own idea, there are too many sources to quote regarding the dire consequences President Obama sees if the sequester, or Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA), isn’t averted. So without individual attribution here are some of the services we will lose. Local first responders–fire, police, EMS. Teachers....
  • Debunking The Myth That Sequester Cuts Will Cause Flight Delays

    Sequester: If you want to know how misleading the Obama administration is being about the effects of the sequester, look no further than Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood's dark warnings about flight delays. LaHood showed up at the daily White House press briefing Friday to claim the sequester — automatic spending cuts President Obama insisted on that are now scheduled to take effect in March — will "be very painful for the flying public." Because of those cuts, he said, the department will have to furlough flight controllers, leading to "delays of up to 90 minutes during peak hours" at major...
  • Pre-K Won't Help Kids

    President Obama ended his State of the Union speech on a warm and fuzzy note by calling for pre-K programs for almost all children. The best thing he could do for pre-kindergarten children is to make sure he doesn't hang trillions of dollars of debt around their necks, but that isn't the route he is taking. Instead, Obama wants to provide government daycare for all preschoolers who live in households where the income is below approximately $47,100. He doesn't call it daycare or babysitting (which is a more accurate term); he calls it early childhood education. Early childhood education means...

    As predicted, the Democrats' refusal to cut any spending other than the military only delayed the inevitable. Now, as is already taking place in Greece, France and Spain, deep cuts must take place or the government will shut down. The fiscal cliff agreement and the Budget Control Act of 2011 called for sequestration on March 1st if an agreement on how to pay down the deficit was not reached. The sequestration mandates $1.2 trillion in spending cuts across the board throughout most of the federal government over the next decade. The only way to prevent sequestration is if the Democrats...
  • Public Schools: Sexual Perversion, “Good,” Christian T-Shirt, “Inappropriate”

    The godless, communist Left has commandeered the public education system. This is not news to those of us who have paid attention to our society’s steady crumble into immoral oblivion. The government-run public school system routinely cranks out undereducated kids while constantly clamoring for more money for “education.” It’s sickening and scary, because the kids are coming out of school today sorely deficient in basic reading and writing skills, and knowledge of history, math and science, but they are quite proficient in the tenets of leftist indoctrination, like belief in the hoax of man-made global warming, narcissistic “self-esteem,” and the...

    EDITOR’S NOTE: The links in the following report may contain offensive language. Ravi Baichwal is not going to like this: Three-thousand people fought, looted, rioted, assaulted, cursed, threatened, hurled racial epithets and vandalized a Chicago neighborhood over the weekend. And all of them were black. Baichwal, a news anchor for the ABC affiliate in Chicago, says anyone who notices that is “an idiot.” Repeated examples of black mob violence in Chicago are “not riots,” Baichwal said. “It’s disaffected youth for sure,” and anyone who disagrees is “just race-baiting.” Baichwal was commenting on an epidemic of more than 450 cases of...

    Meaning Romney Was Also An Idiot For Not Noticing ... Sometime before Election Day, before the debates, people already knew Stuart Stevens and his team were in over their heads. From the utter fiasco of Romney’s convention speech, which he stripped down to a thin gruel of bland forgettable pablum (and of course, stripped of any mention of America’s servicemen and women abroad), throwing aside Bush’s micro-targetting programmed wholesale, allowing his Hollywood aspirations to make him give the prime speaking slot at the RNC to Clint Eastwood (without any vetting) instead of people who would humanize his candidate, I just...

    President Obama told a meeting of the National Governors Association: "At some point, we've got to do some governing. And certainly, what we can't do is keep careening from manufactured crisis to manufactured crisis." Really? Yes, really. He added, referring to the sequestration: "These cuts do not have to happen. Congress can turn them off anytime with just a little bit of compromise." Obama has repeatedly demonstrated that he does not consider himself bound by a duty of good faith to square with the American people. He has shown that he is unafraid to utter the most egregious distortions and...

    Via Mediaite, I’m going to cut this guy a bit of a break, for two reasons. One: He’s not denying that the media’s on Obama’s side. He’s quibbling with the phrase “in the tank,” which he seems to define, roughly, as being unwilling to ask uncomfortable questions under any circumstances. By that definition, he’s right — why, just this morning the White House press corps got Jay Carney to skedaddle from the podium by pressing him a bit too hard about OFA influence peddling. It’s not that they categorically refuse to report stories that are “unhelpful” to the administration, it’s...

    Today, I had a conversation with an investigator from the Cold Case Posse in AZ. We talked and I expanded on several dossiers filled with evidence for over an hour. They asked for all of my relevant information on Obama, the Harry Bounel alias evidence, and the dossiers I completed on Stanley Ann Dunham, her parents, and Michelle Obama as well. They have it all. BTW they also say that it looks like my information cannot be disproved and will be useful. I have proof, definitive proof that Stanley Ann Dunham was in WA state in "1961" as per the...

    Is this what Michelle Obama looks like untethered to the pressure of a campaign? Is she free to follow her whims without worries about political backlash? The first lady became the buzz of the weekend when she beamed into the Academy Awards from the White House to present the award for best picture with Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson. Attendees and viewers were flabbergasted at the satellite image of the elegantly dressed Obama, flanked by young service members in full regalia, opening the envelope to name Ben Affleck’s “Argo” the winner. “It just seem[ed] so natural because the whole thing is...

    Despite the veto threat and snail's-pace prosecution of Hasan -- and the fact that the media "let this thing go." WASHINGTON — On Wednesday, the court-martial of accused Fort Hood gunman Major Nidal Hasan will creep forward at its glacial pace with a motions hearing to hear defense requests on a change of venue and the makeup of the panel that will potentially hear the case. Facing 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder — and potentially the death penalty — Hasan’s trial has been delayed several months by his growth of a beard not...

    A former adviser to President Barack Obama criticized Comcast’s acquisition of NBC Universal as evidence of consumer-hostile business practices in the communications industry, Ars Technica reports. Susan Crawford, a visiting professor at Harvard, served as Obama’s special assistant for science, technology and innovation policy. In her book “Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age,” Crawford implicates AT&T, Verizon, Time Warner, Apple, Google and Microsoft, as well as Comcast. She states that these companies “tacitly cooperate by carving out their separate areas of expertise,” resulting in overpriced products and services for consumers. Crawford argues for...

    The Obama administration is prodding people to become whistleblowers for ObamaCare. Of course not to blow the whistle on the government and those who created this monstrosity that no one can figure out. No, to blow the whistle on small businesses who can then be fined quickly. This way they can be run out of business even more quickly then ever. Sometimes you really can't make this crap up: The Affordable Care Act sets up a new arena of whistleblower protections for employees who complain that their company-provided health insurance doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do. On Friday, the...

The cynics, and the lobbyists, and the special interests who've turned our government into a game only they can afford to play. They write the checks and you get stuck with the bills, they get the access while you get to write a letter, they think they own this government, but we're here today to take it back. The time for that politics is over. It's time to turn the page."

    First lady Michelle Obama, surrounded by servicemen and women, made a surprise appearance at Sunday night's Oscar ceremony when she appeared via live video from Washington to present the award for Best Picture. Jack Nicholson was present on stage to hand off the award to Ben Affleck for Argo. Obama praised the nominees for the night's highest honor, saying the films nominated for the Best Picture Oscar could teach lessons that "apply to all of us no matter who we are, what we look like, where we come from and who we love." She said she was excited to pay...
