  • Garth Brooks cancels Thanksgiving appearance on ‘Tonight Show’ after Ferguson decision

    Garth Brooks cancels Thanksgiving appearance on ‘Tonight Show’ after Ferguson decision The singer wrote on his Facebook page that he landed in New York on the night the grand jury’s decision was announced 'to the news of the civil unrest that was going on in our nation.' Singer Garth Brooks has canceled a Thanksgiving appearance on NBC’s “Tonight” show because he said it “seemed distasteful” given the reaction to the decision not to prosecute Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown this summer. NBC on Wednesday confirmed the postponement, saying Brooks was being replaced on...
  • What Sarah Palin gets totally wrong about MLK Day and the 'race card' (Must've hit a nerve)

    The Week ^ | January 21, 2014 | Peter Weber, senior editor
    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) caused a small kerfuffle on Monday by requesting of President Obama, on her Facebook page: "Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card." Nobody seems quite sure what prompted the request, though USA Today and Talking Points Memo, among others, suggest it was a new Obama profile in The New Yorker, in which the president famously says that marijuana is no worse for people than cigarettes and alcohol. In the germane passage regarding race, Obama tells interviewer David...

    She apologized for her tasteless OZ video, where she used the Challenger sound byte, so all was supposed to be “good,” right?  Obviously, because now she feels comfortable enough to post a picture of herself blocking Jesus in the “Last Supper,” and here I thought Obama’s ego was monstrous; move over Obama, there’s a new savior in town. I’m not the only one who’s rather beset by this, so unless she can part the controversial seas, there may more than a little be trouble coming her way.

    The truth is, the Tea Party anger that boiled over in response to the President Obama’s healthcare plan had been brewing for years due to conservative disappointment with George W. Bush’s policies. Bush created record-breaking deficits, embraced Congressional earmarks, gained passage of an enormous expansion of Medicare entitlements without funding it, nominated Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, and backed McCain-Kennedy comprehensive immigration reform. Principled conservatives like Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity spoke out against the direction of the party, to their credit. Conservatives must be careful not to abandon their principles out of blind hated for President Obama....
  • Conservatives that can't vote for Romney VANITY

    11/02/2012 11:06:00 AM PDT · by birdsman · 151 replies
    I know that some freepers are reluctant to vote for Romney because he's not conservative enough. Few of us wanted him to be the Republican nominee, and for good reason. This is why I'm voting Libertarian this year. I know the mantra, a vote for Gary Johnson is a vote for Obama, but that's not true in deep blue states like mine (New York). I propose that conservatives in deep blue states agree to vote 3rd party. In return, conservatives in toss up states can hold their noses while voting for Romney.

    During the second half of the 4PM Eastern hour on CNN's "Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer," Obama's former Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones, referred to GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney as a "douche" twice -- on the air. The moment came during a political panel hosted by CNN's senior political analyst Gloria Borger. Other panelists included former Bush White House spokesman Ari Fleischer and former GOP Congressman JC Watts. The discussion surrounded Obama's dwindling advantage with women voters.

    President Barack Obama’s reelection effort is not blaming the sputtering economic recovery of the past four years on former President George W. Bush, his deputy campaign manager insisted Wednesday. “We’re absolutely not doing that,” Stephanie Cutter said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “In fact, we’re taking credit for the 5.1 million private-sector jobs that have been created over the past four years despite being handed the worst economy since the Great Depression. We’re taking credit for the million jobs that were protected under the president’s efforts to save the auto industry and the increase in manufacturing jobs for the first time...

    IRAN has returned to the front pages after a summer hiatus. Negotiations aimed at preventing the dreaded Persian Bomb have resumed their desultory course. Iran, although suffering from the international sanctions choreographed by the Obama administration, keeps adding new arrays of centrifuges while insisting the program is strictly nonmilitary. Israel is — or maybe isn’t — edging closer to a unilateral strike..... This strikes me as a good time to address an unnerving question that confronts any concerned student of this subject: Can we live with a nuclear Iran?

    Ann Romney strongly advocated that her husband consider Condoleezza Rice as his vice-presidential running mate, according to campaign fundraising sources. 'I know that Ann Romney was intrigued by the idea of having Condi on the ticket,' a top Romney fundraiser with close personal ties to the Romneys told MailOnline. 'At the Utah fundraiser, she gave an unbelievable speech. 'Ann is a sounding board for Mitt. He values her intuition. Their relationship is the real deal. After the fundraiser, Condi was vetted and she filled out all the forms but she was reluctant and I don't think she was ever going...

    The 400 richest Americans used to pay 30% of their income on the average to Uncle Sam. Today, they pay 18% on the average. The main reason for the drop in their tax rate of some 40% is the tax cuts by George Bush in 2003, taking the rate paid on dividends and capital gains down to 15%.

    Barack Obama named three Democratic Representatives that stood out for their “courageous” and “risky” votes given the circumstances of their own districts: Cory Gardner’s campaign responded, agreeing with President Obama that Markey’s votes have put her congressional future in jeopardy. “The President may want to spin Representative Markey’s votes as being courageous, but the people of the 4th Congressional District see things differently,” said Rachel Boxer, spokeswoman for the Gardner campaign. “Supporting the President’s healthcare takeover and massive stimulus bill is going to cost Representative Markey her job.”

    Greg Smith, 46 from New York, has supported Barack Obama since the now-president announced his bid for the White House in 2007. But three years later the diehard Obamaniac has a sober admission: he’s losing hope. In 2007, the New York Post featured Smith’s story — he was a converted Clinton supporter that left his work as a hotel doorman to campaign for Obama. Obama read the story and asked Smith to introduce him at a campaign event and also tell his story. He did, began campaigning for Obama full-time, and even was present backstage during the Democratic National Convention...

    It sounds like something out of science fiction. A battle for the Planet GOP is currently underway, pitting the RINOs against the EIPOs. Cue Orson Welles. As the RINOs appear headed for extinction, (political) scientists are left wondering if Planet GOP is itself doomed if its landscape is left only to the EIPOs. The RINOs -- Republicans in name only -- evolved from the likes of H. John Heinz and John Chafee. Until recently, their ranks included Arlen Specter, Mike Castle and, well, me. They were registered in the Republican Party, but not because of a purely ideological connection. Consequently,...

So we wanted to compile these lists so you can know which RINOs voted for these atrocious bills.

After about three hours of deliberations, jurors found Pamela Morrow Graf, 48, guilty on one count each of first-degree arson and possession of cocaine and marijuana. Graf, who did not testify in her defense, will remain in custody at the Forsyth County Detention Center until her sentencing May 26. Forsyth County Superior Court Chief Judge Jeffrey S. Bagley granted a request from Graf’s attorney, Parker McFarland, to delay sentencing until her father and mother, who were out of town,...

John told investigators she had a presidential pardon to make the gas bombs.

    President Bush favored cap and trade, one of this former speechwriters claims in a new book.

Cap-and-trade, which would put a limit on businesses' carbon emissions, barely passed the House this year but has yet to make headway in the Senate. Most Republicans are vocally opposed to it.

The film isn’t exactly breaking any box office records, and may not recoup the $30M it needs to break even. Perhaps this comes down to paycheck issues.
