    A friend of mine was driving through Temple, TX when he snapped this picture of a large billboard by the highway. The billboard had a picture of President Obama and it had a simple, clear message: Bankrupt America YES WE CAN!

    THE DAILY BEAST ^ | 8/19/2012 | NIALL FERGUSON
    Despite having been—full disclosure—an adviser to John McCain, I acknowledged his opponent’s remarkable qualities: his soaring oratory, his cool, hard-to-ruffle temperament, and his near faultless campaign organization. Yet the question confronting the country nearly four years later is not who was the better candidate four years ago. It is whether the winner has delivered on his promises. And the sad truth is that he has not. In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines...
  • How Obamacare's $716 Billion in Cuts Will Drive Doctors Out of Medicare

    Forbes ^ | August 20, 2012
    There are 600,000 physicians in America who care for the 48 million seniors on Medicare. Of the $716 billion that the Affordable Care Act cuts from the program over the next ten years, the largest chunk—$415 billion—comes from slashing Medicare’s reimbursement rates to doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes. This significant reduction in fees is driving many doctors to stop accepting new Medicare patients, making it harder for seniors to gain access to needed care. Here are a few of their stories. Paul Wertsch is a primary physician in Madison, Wisconsin. In 1977, he and his two partners invested $500,000 of...
  • Shock poll: Obama could lose Illinois

    Daily Caller ^ | August 20, 2012 | Alexis Levinson
    President Barack Obama could lose his home state of Illinois in November, a new poll shows. A poll conducted by Illinois-based pollster and political strategist Michael McKeon found Obama leading Republican Mitt Romney by 49 percent to 37 percent in Cook County, the home of Chicago. That puts him ahead by a far thinner margin than expected in a county he should be winning handsomely. Cook is the most Democratic leaning county in the state. It is also the most populous. Those numbers do not bode well for the president. “He has to come out of Cook County with a...

    Red State ^ | 8/16/2012 | Soren Dayton
    We are one week into Mitt Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan. A number of polls are coming out telling a variety of stories about what it means. But one thing is clear: Barack Obama’s campaign has had several significant strategic failures this summer. And they failed to define Paul Ryan out of the gate with their Mediscare tactics. And they failed to define Mitt Romney this summer with a huge campaign spend. The Obama campaign hoped to use the summer to define Mitt Romney. They spent $25 million in May ads. Obama spent $58m in June. What effect did it...
  • Dinesh D'Souza Sends Money to President Obama's Brother for Sick Child

    Dinesh D’Souza, co-director of the film "2016 — Obama's America," and author of the new book "Obama’s America," sent money to cover the hospital bill of a sick child belonging to President Barack Obama’s brother after George Obama pleaded with him over the phone for help. In a column published on FoxNews.com, D’Souza outlines how George Obama, the youngest of eight children sired by Barack Obama Sr., asked him to send $1,000 to cover medical bills for his young son who was sick with a chest condition. D’Souza confirmed that the boy was ill and wired Obama the money. D’Souza...

    Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 19 August, 2012 | David Codrea
    Documents analyzed over the past few days in this column, received from a source close to the case of former FBI agent John Shipley, convicted of illegally dealing in firearms, indicate not only a pattern of government-sanctioned “gunwalking” similar to what occurred in the Fast and Furious debacle, but also raise suspicions that federal agents lied on the application to obtain a search warrant for Shipley’s residence. In previous installments of this exclusive story, Gun Rights Examiner documented how collector and hobbyist Shipley sold a Barrett .50 caliber rifle to a former deputy, who then resold it to a trafficker...

    National Review ^ | 08/18/2012 | Lee Habeeb
    You would think the media would be crawling all over a rich-man-poor-man story like this. One brother is poor and lives in Africa. The other is rich and lives in America. One lives in a shanty in a slum in Nairobi on dollars a month. The other lives at the most exclusive address in the world — 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Sound like a fictional Hollywood screenplay, one the Left would eat up? But it gets better. It turns out that the rich American brother made his fortune writing about his own life, and about the father from Kenya he didn’t...

    $585 million dollars.  That is the estimate of what Obama’s new amnesty will cost the American taxpayer.  This back door plan, put into action by imperial edict without any input from Congress, is just another nail in the coffin of our economy.  This past week thousands of children of illegal immigrants were granted the right to apply for “deferred action” in order to stay in this country and sign up for employment opportunities.  Starting August 15th, illegal aliens up to the age of 30 who meet certain requirements can begin submitting their applications that will allow them to remain in...
  • Taking America back -- Have we finally reached the tipping point?

    Canada Free Press ^ | August 20, 2012 | Madeline Crabb
    Recently, Americans across this nation finally stood in defiance against radical leftists and homosexual baiters to support Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy, traditional marriage, and free speech. Was this an isolated event, or an indication that Americans have finally reached the tipping point where they will actively begin to take America back? For decades, Americans have been brainwashed and browbeaten by radical left/progressive/liberal/socialist/elitists, with the end goal of making us behave according to their rules. Children have been taught politically-correct conduct and speech in the indoctrination centers called public schools. Words have been twisted to have different meanings. People of all...

    After some of the recent Obama-loving/Romney-bashing Newsweek covers, the one hitting newsstands Monday is guaranteed to turn some heads. Under the picture of our dear leader are the words, "Hit the Road, Barack: Why We Need a New Leader." The article is written by Niall Ferguson, a British historian and economist that backed John McCain in 2008. After an introduction, Ferguson made his case: In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines that feed...

    Obama the Great Leader ^ | August 19, 2012 | Chuck Morse
    The principle of the Great Leader was established in 1917 when Vladimir Lenin came to power in Russia after the Bolshevik coup. With personal control over the Russian media and police, Lenin built his cult of personality and annihilated his opponents. When Lenin died in 1924, his grateful nation resurrected the ancient Egyptian ritual of having his body mummified. His remains are still propped up against the Kremlin wall in Moscow. Adolf Hitler brought the Great Leader principle to a new height, one that will, God willing, never again be attempted. Hitler not only controlled the German media and police...

    I need some help with status of the "farm bailout"...as I understand it, Congress is going on recess, and, prior to this, we are likely not bailing out farmers due to pork added to such bills...perhaps this is rhetorical, but is Boehner so stupid that he can't get in front of a microphone and say, "we'll pass something if the Dems would remove pork from the bill and make it just the farm bailout"? From what I see, 0bama's agencies, i.e., him, will get compassion points if we let this go by and look like Scrooge. Sure, I had government...
