    The Voices In My Head That Keep Shouting | 5/20/12 | Alan Levy
    For the last couple of months, many of the pointy-headed talking heads who inhabit The Fox Neocon Channel (FNC), PMSNBC, and the Communist Newspeak Network (CNN) have been babbling about the in-fighting on the Right. Many have wondered if the GOP Establishment's Golden Boy Mitt Romney has been damaged by the lukewarm rececption of him by the GOP's Conservative base. (As of this writing, it is unknown if the Bellvue staff has allowed Tokyo Rove to have shoe laces yet.) Night after night, we've had nothing but on air hand-wringing from the likes of Ann Coulter and the rest of...
  • White House visitor logs provide window into lobbying industry [Obama more than any president]

    ... It was an unremarkable January day, with a steady stream of lobbyists among the thousands of daily visitors to the White House and the surrounding executive office buildings, according to a Washington Post analysis of visitor logs released by the administration. The Post matched visits with lobbying registrations and connected records in the visitor database to show who participated in the meetings, information now available in a search engine on the Post’s web site. The visitor logs for Jan. 17 — one of the most recent days available — show that the lobbying industry Obama has vowed to constrain...

    Culture Challenge of the Week: Poll-Driven “Principles” The American people are not stupid. Recently, President Obama announced he’d discovered a new conviction in favor of homosexual marriage (conveniently timed to maximize his standing at a $15 million Hollywood fundraiser among the liberal glitterati). It was nothing more than a blatant attempt to fire up his base, particularly young liberal and independent voters: If they don’t vote, Mr. Obama loses big-time. But the American people are not buying into his pandering. A CBS/New York Times poll found that 67 percent of all Americans think Mr. Obama’s announcement was “mostly for political...

Considering my son is a deployed Marine with limited access to the internet and the time there is in the wee morning hours, I contacted his friend who is also rarely on facebook and asked him if he had recently "liked" the article. He said he hadn't. Do you think it possible this is a political hack? Just wondering.

    The violence in northern Nigeria is mistakenly viewed as a religious conflict rather than simply a tribal dispute over land, according to the Obama administration. Despite the ongoing Muslim destruction of churches and the slaughter of Christians – including many murdered during worship services – the U.S. Agency for International Development claims that the misunderstandings make it difficult to administer aid programs. USAID, therefore, has launched a program titled Project PEACE – an acronym for Programming Effectively Against Conflict and Extremism.

    A 1991 information booklet printed by Barack Obama's then literary agent that states that he "--was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii" has surfaced, according to Big Government. This has lit a torch under the birther movement. To reiterate before we go further, the booklet in no way "proves" the theory that President Obama was born in Kenya, is therefore not a natural born citizen, and therefore not legally president. He was born in Hawaii, therefore a natural born citizen, therefore the constitutionally elected president. But then the question arises, why suggest that the young Barack Obama,...

Ignoring the question completely, as he clearly had no answers, he launched into an attack on the Bush administration, saying: "I think it is enormous problem (sic). This has been the most fiscally irresponsible administration in certainly my memory. Uh, we have gone from trillion dollar surpluses to trillion dollar deficits in the blink of an eye. Not all...

This reminds me of what he said a few months ago, on the issue of ObamaCare and the like: Jesus made him do it. I addressed that issue in another recent column. On May 9, 2012, President Obama told Robin Roberts of ABC News that his position on gay relations has now evolved to the point that he thinks "same-sex couples should be able to get married."

    A proposed Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), which has been signed by President Obama but not yet ratified by Congress, will subordinate U.S. naval and drilling operations beyond 200 miles of our coast to a newly established U.N. bureaucracy. If approved, it will grant a Kingston, Jamaica-based International Seabed Authority (ISA) the power to regulate deep-sea oil exploration, seabed mining, and fishing rights. As part of the deal, as much as 7% of U.S. government revenue that is collected from oil and gas companies operating off our coast will be forked over to ISA for redistribution to poorer, landlocked...

The oldest child is 14 years old. Hatchett explains how he reached such a critical mass: He had four kids in the same year. Twice.

    Most Conservatives have for many years tried to make the case that “Liberalism” is synonymous with “Socialism.” The main point being that liberal politicians can only be elected by ensuring their “constituents” remain dependent on the goodies only liberals can provide. “The Redistribution of Wealth” therefore has to be a primary plank in their campaign platforms. (It’s interesting to note that all these programs are designed to give their constituents just enough to survive, yet never enough to escape the trap of Government dependence). Reagan once said “We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not...

But in addition to obvious dangers like a struggling economy, Obama’s team will face a new threat -- a better-prepared Republican Party coming off three years of victories in the state.

If this is true, no one should expect anyone on the Republican side of the aisle to actually admit it. But actions do speak louder than words. There has been a rebellious trend in government since Obama took office that has brought both governing and Americans' view of Congress to historic lows. Compromise has surrendered to hardline conservative views and deliberate Republican...

Since then, it appears the left has little job to do in driving a wedge into the right wing, we are doing it still ourselves. Were is this truce? How come all I see on here is Alinsky tactics of divide and conquer? Today there was a post about Evil Mittie and him fundraising with morning after pill distributors. And the "true blue conservatives" pounce, little...
  • Extend the Bush Tax Cuts Now

    House Speaker John Boehner is playing a heroic role right now. In his efforts to prevent the Bush tax cuts from expiring, Boehner is aggressively taking on President Obama's leadership ineptitude on the economy. In essence, Boehner is pushing a Republican policy to wrap up a debt-limitation bill and extend the Bush tax cuts in one fell swoop before the election -- and before all the last-minute, crisis-oriented political machinations that would come in a lame-duck Congress, threatening another credit downgrade and leading to a business-hiring freeze and plunging stock market, all of which happened last year. Tax-cut certainty is...

    "Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but they are not entitled to their own facts." -- Daniel Patrick Moynihan Conservatives and liberals may disagree on reasons, motivations, and excuses for Barack Obama's performance, but the facts are still facts.

Well, here are some basic facts about how the country is faring with Barack Obama in the White House. Take a look at the numbers, sans commentary, and make your own judgment about whether Barack Obama deserves...

    Newt Gingrich took the stage at the Georgia Republican Party state convention on Saturday wearing a Mitt Romney sticker, focusing his attacks on President Barack Obama and attempting to energize the crowd around his former Republican rival. "To every conservative, everywhere in America: When your choice on the one hand is Barack Obama, and your choice on the other hand is Mitt Romney, no serious conservative could possibly believe that electing Barack Obama is acceptable ... for America."

    Hello everyone… I know it’s been a while since I have written an article. I’ve been doing a very large research project which I just now finished. This article might get me in trouble, but that’s fine by me, bring it! I have been reading the history of both the Third Reich and Obama’s history. Unlike all of the sheeple and Obamanauts out there, I will not hold back. I will be honest and forthright with you. This is not going to be pretty folks. The profile of Hitler and Obama are so similar, its frigging scary and their paths...

Imagine weapons that don't harm the environment. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., ranking member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, and a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, took to the Senate floor Thursday to decry the green agenda being imposed on the military by the Obama administration at the same time the defense budget is being sacrificed on the altar of runaway deficit spending.

    All the President's Man The Dodd Frank law was supposed to rein in abuses by Wall St. It was supposed to end "too big to fail." It was supposed to end so-called "risky trading" by banks. Some of us knew better. Barack Obama was effusive in his praise of the bill as he signed it. We are gathered in the heart of our nation’s capital, surrounded by memorials to leaders and citizens who served our nation in its earliest days and in its days of greatest trial. Today is such a time for America. Over the past two years, we...

    A lesbian couple who claimed they were victims of a hate crime have been arrested after police determined they staged the incidents. On Oct. 28, Aimee Whitchurch, 37, and Christel Conklin, 29, called police and reported the words “Kill the Gay” were scrawled in red spray paint on the garage door of their Parker, Colo., home. The next day, the couple told deputies they found a noose hanging on the handle of their front door. The women told officers they believed the incidents were retaliation from their neighbors and homeowner’s association, who had complained the couple did not pick up...
