  • Democrats who can “find” votes to steal elections have “found” 386k jobs trying to steal this one

    Democrats who can magically “find” votes to steal elections when they have to; have now “found” 386,000 jobs some silly goose “forgot” to add to Bureau of Labor Statistics employment figures. They can try this lie, but our economy is falling off a cliff and everybody knows it. Surprising to only Barack Obama’s “experts” the Commerce Department announced that orders for durable goods plummeted 13.2 percent last month. The Democrat cheer leaders in the media won’t remind you of this but at 13.2% this is the BIGGEST drop since January 2009 the month Obama took office. This is a recession...
  • Sadness in the Savage Nation

    10/02/2012 5:02:49 AM PDT · by scottfactor · 58 replies ^ | 10/02/12 | Gina Miller
    Last Thursday evening it was not surprising to hear Jeff Kuhner of the Washington Times filling for Dr. Michael Savage on his popular, nationally syndicated radio show, The Savage Nation, because Jeff regularly fills in for Dr. Savage, and he does an excellent job. But, I noticed something odd; Jeff did not mention Dr. Savage (which has never happened), and there was different bumper music playing than is normally heard on the program. It was not until the next day that I learned Dr. Savage had won the almost-two-year legal battle with his syndicator, Talk Radio Network (TRN), and had...

Nothing will be beneath them as they seek any lawless means of accomplishing this goal. These will seek stir up the rage of the masses of socially subjective lawless government dependents and the violent secular Left. This offensive vindictive provocation by the Leftist media will be the very catalyst for the continual arousing of the rage of the Lefts base which will continue to violently overflow well past the 2012 elections.

    While liberal journalists are quick to accuse Republicans of racism for any criticism of Obama's failed economic and foreign policies, they are mute in the face of real racism exhibited by Democrats against black Republicans. Obama has gutted welfare reform, stolen over $700 billion from Medicare to fund ObamaCare and is refusing to reform the nearly bankrupt social security system. To add insult to injury, Obama is also putting our freedom at risk and jeopardizing our national security with his failed foreign policy. The question facing Americans this election is whether our nation will remain free and prosperous as it...
  • Analysis: In Obama’s economy, immigrants outpace native-born Americans

    The Daily Caller ^ | October 1, 2012 | Neil Munro
    Immigrant job-seekers have gained far more in President Barack Obama’s weak economy than have native-born Americans, according to government data. Since Obama’s inauguration, employers have fired and hired millions of workers during the bust and slow recovery. The net result is that they employed more than 1.7 million more immigrants — but only 418,000 more native-born Americans — in August 2012, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ household survey. That number “seems like a usable tool on the table if [Gov. Mitt] Romney wanted to use it … to drive up [his] numbers,” a GOP operative told The Daily...

    There is a lot of news about the election out there. For Republicans it seems to span from bad to worse, that is if you don’t look closer. Here’s a closer look and a question: Who should feel good now, and who should not? Several polls have Barack Obama ahead by anywhere from 2 points to 10 points. That would tend to make Democrats feel good. But there is a problem with the polls. To various degrees they over poll Democrats (some saying 52.2 % of all voters will be Democrats) under poll Republicans (some using just 24% Republicans and...

    Since February 3, 1870, when a Republican Congress ratified the 15th Amendment to insure African Americans had the right to vote, Black pastors have always encouraged their congregations to vote. Until 1908 they had advised voting for Republicans since they considered the GOP their natural home. In 1912 Woodrow Wilson and W,E.B. Dubois tricked African Americans into believing that Blacks were not making progress and it was the Republican’s fault. For 100 hundred year s to a greater and greater degree Blacks have voted Democrat. This year, in the oddest of twists, Barack Obama a Black man is on his...

For example, the FBI is actively recruiting homosexual and "transgender" employees and agents. The FBI's "careers" website now boasts a page advising potential (and current) job applicants. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has actually been involved with the homosexual movement for over 15 years, according to...

    If you are unemployed for an extended period of time, people are going to look at you differently. Unfortunately, this is especially true if you are a man. In our society, men are primarily defined by "what they do". If you have been unemployed for a long period of time, that can make social interactions even more awkward than normal. Most people will instantly become more uncomfortable around you when they find out that you are unemployed. Many will look at you with pity, and others will actually look at you with disdain. Women will not want to date you,...

But as Eric Hoffer once observed, "we are least open to precise knowledge concerning the things we are most vehement about." In fact, the Obama administration's long term strategy is to create a permanent class of federally dependent citizens tipping over 50 percent in order to suffocate the very atmosphere that gives life to intellectual and political diversity in America. As James Madison said, there are "two methods of removing the causes of faction: the one, by destroying the liberty which...

    One of the enduring myths about the Mafia is that it respects women and children. However, for several years boss Vito Genovese protected one of his top earners Salvatore "Sally Burns" Granello who allegedly raped multiple underage girls. Indeed, at one time Granello even was being groomed as a possible successor to Don Vito. The only thing that prevented the child rapist from becoming a family boss was his big mouth which finally got him whacked in 1970. * * * The Genovese family finally said good riddance to the child rapist who once was in the running to be...

    The battleground states that the media’s fake polls are assigning to Barack Obama are populated by a large number of military veterans. Florida alone has 1.6 million and Ohio Virginia and North Carolina have nearly 1 million each. These numbers are extremely important because at least one Left wing media outlet Reuters, is reporting that Mitt Romney has an insurmountable 20 point lead over Barack Obama among veterans. While insisting that their Democrat skewed survey “results” are showing a growing overall lead for Obama, Reuters has been forced to acknowledge that veterans are less supportive of Obama now than they...

    Is Bill Ayers Influencing ‘Race to the Top’? A close colleague of the former terrorist is deeply involved in designing the president's program. byMary GrabarBio September 25, 2012 - 12:00 am Tweet What happened to Bill Ayers since his time in the spotlight during the last Obama campaign? We know that Ayers, along with wife Bernardine Dohrn and Code Pink leader Jodie Evans, supported the Gaza Flotilla, incited protests in Egypt with the Free Gaza Movement in 2010, and advised Occupy Wall Street protesters on strategy. After all, he’s had a lot of experience, having spent his youth bombing...
  • Why I Fasted on Yom Kippur for the First Time in Twenty… or Is It Thirty… Years

    From the title of this article, it should be evident I don’t remember the last time I fasted on Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement. When I was a kid, I used to tell my father I was going to fast in order to avoid going to school. (Despite a sizable Jewish population, the New York City public schools were open.) Then I would go out to play stickball with my friends, only to sneak off shortly thereafter for a French fries and egg cream break at a candy store on 85th and Madison known to us as Jesse’s...

    Radio host Rush Limbaugh is no stranger to controversy. And now, a few short months before the November elections, Limbaugh is predicting a disaster scenario for America if Barack Obama is re-elected. He went so far as to say that if President Obama is voted into office for another term, the national economy is in serious trouble. “We’re doomed,” Limbaugh recently said on his talk show. “If Obama’s re-elected, it will happen. There’s no if about this. And it’s gonna be ugly. It’s gonna be gut-wrenching, but it will happen. The country’s economy is going to collapse if Obama is...

    If you’ve only been living in America for a few years, or if, like me, you only really became aware of your surroundings after the economy went to crap in a pleather briefcase, you might not have noticed the sharp decline in the number of factories on US soil. You might not even know what a factory looks like. How do you find a factory? Is there a password? Does it require a certain state of mind? What is a factory? Sure, there were the days of Henry Ford and his cars of many colors (as long as it’s black),...

    On Wednesday, an enthusiastic Obama supporter protesting Mitt Romney near Cleveland, Ohio, explained why she is voting for the president. “Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know. He gave us a phone, he gonna do more (sic),” the unidentified Obama supporter said in a video posted to YouTube. When asked how the President gave her a phone, she explained that all she had to do was sign up for it. "You sign up! If you on food stamps, you on social security, you got low income, you disability...,” she explained. The video cut...

    In case you haven’t noticed, parental rights are under assault. Your ability to raise your children as you see fit without interference from the government is being viciously attacked as never before. The reason is simple: The Globalists can’t achieve their dream of a utopian world unless they control all thought, and they can’t control all thought without indoctrination of the populace from a very early age. They don’t trust you with your own children, as you might infect them with the heresy of self-reliance, individualism, God-given rights, self-government, and liberty. Here are some examples of how these control freaks...

    The Tax Policy Center (TPC) released a report in March of 2012 detailing the effects of the Romney tax reform plan on taxpayers. The conclusion reached by the Tax Policy Center stated that the Romney tax reform plan would cut taxes for high-income taxpayers and raise them for middle and lower-income earners. Since the report was released, President Obama and his team have ran with it and used it to undermine the credibility of Romney’s plan. Senior Analyst in Tax Policy at the Heritage Foundation, Curtis Dubay, released his rebuttal of the TPC report yesterday which revealed many of the...

At this rate, the projected annual cost is more than $625 million. “With the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal immigrants to...
