    Don’t say I didn’t try to steer you in the right direction regarding Lady M’s fingerprints being all over the “War Against Republican Women named Ann”... ...Did I not tell you that Hilary Rosen really didn’t appreciate being thrown under that bus? Generally in this town – especially if you’re in charge - you can get away with dissing a lot of people. Butt a menopausal lesbian militant feminist? Good luck with that, I don’t care who you are... ...And in their commitment to pursuing the directives of the “Coach,” everyone, including Lady M, forgot that it was Big Guy...

    By now most have viewed at least one of the HHS anti-smoking commercials featuring victims of various cancers and other ailments caused - they say - by smoking and tobacco use. It's a cliche but still true: these are our tax dollars at work. Your government commissioned these ads and purchased the airtime with your cash. HHS Secretary Sebelius and her minions risk another sort of medical problem - namely, rotator cuff injuries from patting themselves on the back for foisting these grotesque, voyeuristic images on an unsuspecting, undeserving public. This isn't a tear in the eye of Iron Eyes...

    In 2008, Candidate Barack Obama promised that if elected he would address comprehensive immigration reform during his first year in office. Four years later, he has vowed to address reform at the beginning of his second term. But rather than admit this is just another campaign promise on which Mr. Obama failed to deliver, his re-election campaign's senior adviser blames a Republican "reign of terror." Appearing on CNN's State of the Union, David Axelrod claimed the president's failure was the result of a "monolithic opposition to everything the chief executive wants to do" and that "a lot of Republicans in...
  • Trouble For Romney at Arizona Meeting (Romney Loyalty Oath?)

    A Time For Choosing ^ | April 20, 2012 · 5:24 pm | Gary P Jackson
    If the dust up at the GOP meeting in Arizona is any indication, if one isn’t ready to pledge 100% loyalty to Mitt Romney, he’s not interested in seeing or hearing from you. It’s long been worried that Mitt would blow off the base of the party if elected, incidents like this do nothing to set these fears aside. Mitt Romney held a meeting in Scottsdale with top Republicans, hoping to convince the undecideds to throw their support behind him, as …. let’s face it …. his nomination is all but a fait accompli. Mitt offered attendees a chance to...

    he Romney campaign continues to leave many evangelical voters feeling a bit out of sorts. It seems more and more the Romney campaign calculus is that the campaign will get the evangelical vote without much effort. As Ben Domenech wrote in his excellent Transom last week: Now evangelicals shift from roughly half the pie in the primary to a quarter of it in the general (they were 24% of voters in 2008). They are making their peace with Romney, but the potential danger, as I’ve noted before, is that their lackluster feelings for him will result in lower evangelical turnout...
  • WikiLeaks: McCain knew Obama team stuffed ballot boxes, bribed Jackson; took Russian money in 2008

    According to internal Emails circulated among the staff at Stratfor, an Austin Texas based private intelligence gathering firm, John McCain was presented with proof that Democrats in Pennsylvania and Ohio used voter fraud to win those states and committed other disturbing crimes. The communiqués were stolen and made public by WikiLeaks. An Email dated November 7, 2008 under the subject line “ Insight – The Dems & Dirty Tricks ** Internal Use Only – Pls Do Not Forward **,” was sent by Fred Burton, Stratfor’s V.P. of Intelligence. It said in part, "The black Dems were caught stuffing the ballot...

    To be genuinely outraged about something, you need to actually believe in something. Without principles, outrage is just tactical anger, or bullying in plainer language. Principles, values and codes are universal. That is if you are angry about a dog being mistreated by riding on top of a car, then you should at least be equally angry at dogs being eaten. If a man shooting another man after a confrontation and not being charged for it angers you, then it should anger you regardless of the color of his skin. For that matter if racism or sexism offends you, then...

    The problem with Iran’s enrichment facilities has become more acute in recent years. When the West refused to supply 20%-enriched uranium for the small Tehran Research Reactor, where the Iranians produce medical isotopes, Iranian nuclear experts went ahead in June 2010 and fed their 5%-enriched uranium into the centrifuges to produce 20%-enriched uranium, by themselves. With a stockpile of 20%-enriched uranium, the Iranians would cut by more than half the time they needed to take the next enrichment step to weapons-grade uranium.

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/21/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    www.FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents Teachers in Buffalo New York are up in arms. The State has mandated teachers receive evaluations in order for the schools to receive additional funding. The Teachers' Union has defied the State and refuses to allow evaluations. This all comes to you compliments of a debt based monetary system, which acts to perpetuate corrupt government schemes and ensures that union members get to line their pockets at retirement time, sometimes after just 25 years or less. New York will be completely insolvent in a very short time and will have to rely upon the Federal government to print...
  • U.S. Building a Domestic Population-Control Grid Based on Military Ops

    321Gold ^ | Apr 19, 2012 | Lee Bellinger
    The U.S. military has become expert at controlling urban populations in Iraq – but why is the Department of Homeland Security building similar capabilities here?Unfortunately, the federal government’s war on freedom is a subject still dominated mostly by conspiracy theorists, end-of-the-worlders, and yes, crackpots who hold highly marginal and dismissible views. Fortunately, some of that is changing with the rise of “smart preppers.” I think most people concerned about liberty would appreciate an honest, probative look at actual plans and initiatives that federal authorities are now developing in earnest. Not wild conclusions based on dark conspiracy theories that make most...

    The Examiner ^ | April 21, 2012 | Keith Wimer
    Statistics show a deep divide in opinions along racial lines regarding the killing of a black Florida teenager, Trayvon Martin, by George Zimmerman, who is of mixed ethnicity, white and Hispanic. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense, invoking the Sunshine State’s “Stand Your Ground” law which has also come under intense scrutiny in the wake of the incident. Reuters news service reported last week, 91% of blacks believe Martin was unjustly killed, while only 35% of whites concurred. Hispanics were in between at 59% according to polling numbers Reuters gathered by querying nearly 2,000 Americans. The disparity of views over Martin’s death...
  • MoveOn petition plays race card with another gunshot tragedy in swing state (North Carolina)

    The Daily Caller ^ | April 21, 2012 | Caroline May
    As preparations begin for the trial of neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, MoveOn.org is ready to stir racial tensions on behalf of another victim in a different swing state. The liberal advocacy group on Saturday morning sent out a petition and plea for donations to its members, urging “Justice for Jasmine,” a black North Carolina teen apparently shot accidentally by a white man last year. In a letter to MoveOn.org members, Treka McMillian, Jasmine Thar’s godmother, alleged that Thar’s shooter, a “23-year-old Caucasian male,” was never brought to justice for the death of the “16-year-old African American” because investigators simply...
  • Who's The Real Threat: Ted Nugent or Barack Obama?

    So the Army cancels Ted Nugent's concert at Fort Knox, citing a conflict of interest over his recent comments. How ironic being I'd wager that 80% of our military, if not higher, can't stand Obama and share Nugent's sentiments. Obviously this decision was forced upon military leaders via the Oval Office as an attempt to discredit Nugent and paint him as yet another Tea Party radical. Sadly, Ted probably cares more for our fighting men and women than our Marxist in Chief. I guess the fact that Al Sharpton promised violence over the Trayvon Martin case - which hadn't even...

Yes, it matters a great deal. This little quote speaks volumes. It shows just how foreign Obama truly is. It shows how foreign his upbringing was. Not only that, it also shows how much the Arrogant and Lazy Mainstream Media sucks at its job. Now, before we get started, yes, I know that former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers may have ghost written Chairman Obama's books. However, that...
