  • Stay Classy, Liberals: Gov. Rick Perry Gets Anal Sex Questions At Dartmouth

    This is liberalism at its finest. Get really angry with someone who holds views different from your own, and then berate that person with hyper-emotional drivel. In this case, the victim was Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who received sexually explicit questions from Dartmouth's student body regarding anal sex during a visit to the college. Perry is a social conservative. According to the Dartmouth, the student newspaper, Perry was there to discuss the midterms, border security, energy initiatives and foreign policy. There was a Q&A session–and that’s when things devolved. Both presidents of the College Democrats and Republicans condemned the actions of...

    In “2016: Obama’s America” - the second highest grossing political documentary of all-time – Dinesh D’Souza prognosticated Barack Obama would foster runaway debt, redistribute American wealth on an unprecedented scale, and weaken our foreign influence while emboldening our enemies. Despite being dismissed by liberal pundits and a Praetorian media as a partisan fabrication, time and our President have proven his unwavering predictions inexorably correct. Therefore, if you haven’t had the privilege of watching the compelling filmmaker’s newest work, “America”, you’re not only missing out on a masterful piece of investigatory and expository journalism, but perhaps the most impactful indictment on...

    Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer’s super PAC, Next Gen Climate, wants to implement a “haircut strategy” against Republican campaigns in order to depress conservative turnout. “Our Republican Haircut Strategy — a precision focus on a specific harm in target Republican markets — we will seek to degrade Republican performance,” a memo from Steyer’s super PAC explains in a memo obtained by Politico that the RNC flagged as a “voter suppression” tactic. “The election results in many states may be as narrow as a few thousand votes, so we sought to determine whether we could have an impact at the margins of...

    Angelo Carusone is probably one of the most famous people you’ve never heard of. A prolific warrior for disaffected minorities and the underserved liberal masses, Carusone is the founder of Stop Rush. (As in Limbaugh.) He was also a guiding force behind the parallel Stop Beck effort. The recipient of massive financial support from George Soros, Carusone went on to become the Executive Vice President of Media Matters, acting as a tireless champion of both racial minorities and LGBT citizens and fighting the regressive, hateful conservative movement.In light of all this, it may turn out to be rather curious...

    After two terms in the White House by one Alinsky disciple, the United States is divided as never before. 1 in 4 Americans are ready for their state to secede from the United States. Three quarters of Americans don’t believe that their children will have a better future than they did. To anyone else this would be a failure, but to an Alinskyite despair and doom are a success story. Saul Alinsky wrote in Rules for Radicals that the organizer must “rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people...

    Hero worship is mostly what shines through this missive from Hillary Clinton to Saul Alinsky, but as one person noted on Twitter, that may not be the biggest point of this story from the Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman. In July 1971, the future First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State, and presidential contender lived in the New Left hotbed of Berkeley, California, and was looking for inspiration. She reached out to the grandfather of “community organizing” to express her deep need for his upcoming Rules for Radicals in order to have more fodder for her to “throw at people” in...

    The Washington Free Beacon has released what they are titling The Hillary Letters. They contain a number of letters between Hillary Clinton (then Hillary Rodham) and radical leftist community organizer Saul Alinsky. Hillary had written her college senior thesis on Alinsky and apparently they had a rather friendly relationship. Hillary graduated from college and turned down a job working for Alinsky deciding instead to attend law school. The correspondence occurs mainly during her time in law school, including her stint as a summer associate working for radical left-wing law firm Treuhaft Walker & Burnstein. Based on the letters there is...

Sharyl Attkisson, formerly an investigative reporter with CBS News, where she resigned after becoming disenfranchised with the editorial direction of CBS, suggested that had the Watergate scandal happened today, Nixon might have skated if he employed the tactics President Barack Obama’s is using in handling his controversies. “I think we have gone backwards since that time where we...

    Liberals never met a civil right they didn't dislike. As with everything about liberal ideology, liberals’ great concern for civil rights is a scam, a lie, a fraud designed to sucker in the weak-minded and disguise their goosesteppy inclinations. They care about civil rights like Michael Bay cares about Oscar night. Sure, liberals pose as advocates of civil liberties, but only when they don’t have the power to squash them. In my new book, Conservative Insurgency, a speculative future history of the struggle to restore our system and culture, the left’s coordinated attack on our Constitutional rights is one of...

Dinesh D’Souza recalled that the left’s strategy with his first political documentary, “2016: Obama’s America,” was to ignore it. “You would almost not know ’2016′ existed if you just followed the leftist press and their Internet blogs,” D’Souza told WND in an exclusive phone interview. “It was only when the pied piper Obama came out yelling that everybody else on...

And yet, six years later, there is not even a clear Democratic majority in the country, let alone one poised for 30 years of dominance. It’s not because Mr. Obama’s so-called new coalition of young and nonwhite voters failed to live up to its potential. They again turned out in record numbers in 2012. The Democratic majority has failed to materialize because the Republicans made large, countervailing and unappreciated gains of their own among white Southerners.

    Former green jobs czar Van Jones, during a roundtable discussion over the rollout of Obamacare on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopolous,” said President Barack Obama’s detractors have “Obama Derangement Syndrome.” “It’s silly season. Literally, they have this sort of Obama Derangement Syndrome where Obama is this absent, weak, ineffectual dictator and tyrant who’s destroying America,” Jones said. …

    The subtlest of subterfuge is being practiced at all times, everywhere, by those of the Alinskyite Left. Although they’re malevolently delusional about what makes a society just, moral, and economically healthy, they can be as cunning as foxes and brilliantly Machiavellian in their strategy and tactics. Primary among the items on their agenda is to continually ridicule those of us on the Right. In fact, Saul Alinsky himself, in his classic community-organizing handbook titled Rules for Radicals, taught his rule #5 as follows: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates your opponent, which...

    President Obama's election was supposed to usher in an era of racial unity greater than any Americans had previously experienced. By making the historic move to place the first black president in the White House, Americans signified that they were ready to move beyond the racial conflicts of the past and move forward, arm-in-arm. At least that's what we were told. So much for that. In the last two weeks, MSNBC's Chris Matthews, official hot-air-trial balloon for the Obama administration's public relations strategy, has played the race card incessantly. First, he proclaimed that Republican New Jersey senatorial candidate Steve Lonegan...
  • Congressman Alan Grayson Suggests a Burning Cross for Tea Party Logo

    In an e-mail to supporters yesterday (and on his Tumblr), filter-deficient Florida congressman Alan Grayson, as is his wont, suggested that the t in tea party stands for a burning cross. As to his assertion that the tea party is actually "no more popular than the Klan," 26 percent of Americans support the tea party according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, and we couldn't find any polls measuring support for the KKK but ... it's probably lower than that. Grayson does not offer a source for the claim in his e-mail. Instead, it was hyperlinked to a campaign-donations...

    A group of Tufts University researchers recently conducted a study about the appeal of what they call "outrage-based" political shows hosted by such polarizing figures as Rush Limbaugh on the right and Rachel Maddow on the left. They conclude that the reason people gravitate toward such fare is that it offers them a form of comfort and a "safe haven." According to an article in Pacific Standard magazine, which reported on the study, when a person finds a host whose show lines up with his or her own ideology, "It's a way of feeling like part of a community that...

    President Barack Obama should act less like an Saul Alinsky-trained community organizer and more like the president of the United States, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan charged on Fox News. Buchanan, author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”criticized Obama’s plans to go to Asia on Wednesday’s episode of “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” blaming parts of his administration as the culprits behind the government shutdown. “He is president of the United States, and the idea he is flying off on a junket to Bali, and he is going to Brunei as well, when his own country —...

    Now that the presidential election of last year is in the distant past, it appears that Obama may have abandoned his domestic agenda and is now squarely focused on the Middle East, or to be more accurate, the “Muslim Agenda”. What is this agenda? The answer is simple – the Caliphate. Obama is setting up the Caliphate as quickly as possible for his Sunni Muslim Brotherhood brethren ... Ed Klein wrote a book about Obama called “The Amateur” .. Klein interviewed Obama’s former Reverend, Jeremiah Wright .. Wright stated that he guided Obama to accept Christianity without affecting his faith...

    Vice President Joe Biden said Repulican opposition to the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in the House of Representatives came from the "Neanderthal crowd." And he gave himself credit for coming up with the law almost 20 years ago. "Packed into the front room of the Vice President's residence just before 7pm, Biden spoke for about half an hour to the crowd of several dozen people, most of whom played a role in making VAWA a reality. The room was full of chatter as Biden was standing at the mic waiting to talk, so he turned around and let out...

    No thread, just idiocy masquerading as poignant commentary. Warning, this is revolting considering the history of the NRA and how Charleton Heston lined up Hollywood to support the 60's civil rights movement. A gag alert is in order.
