  • Move Over Kardashians: Keeping Up with the Rebuild America Defeat Obama Tour

    10/14/2012 10:40:01 AM PDT · by Lloyd Marcus · 1 replies ^ | 10/14/12 | Lloyd Marcus
    This presidential election is serious business, the most important ever! An Obama victory would mark the end of America as intended by our Founding Fathers. Still, it is necessary to take a moment to laugh a little. Since TV reality shows such as “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” are the craze, I thought it might be entertaining to share some insider reality on the Rebuild America Defeat Obama national bus tour. We have two tour buses. Somehow, I ended up on the bus with six women. The only males on our bus are Doug, the bus driver and myself. Speaking...

    A retired Army colonel and a professor of history at the University of Kansas have co-written an article instructing the U.S. Army how to properly destroy “…extremist militia [insurgents] motivated by the goals of the ‘tea party’ movement.” (1) Colonel Kevin Benson, who teaches modern warfare to soldiers at the University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Ft. Leavenworth and Associate Professor Jennifer Weber have created a scenario in which activists under the influence of that apogee of American terrorism—Tea Party members—“…take over the government of Darlington, South Carolina, occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council, and placing the...
  • Hating Breitbart - A Fitting Film Tribute to a Unique Political Warrior

    American Thinker ^ | 10/12/2012 | Scott Swett
    Andrew Breitbart, who died last March at just 43 years of age, was the hardest-hitting conservative activist of the Obama era. If you share his conviction that the leftist-dominated media is a threat to open political debate, you will want to see Hating Breitbart, which was screened recently in Washington. The film offers an affectionate look at the activist's political battles and outsized personality, but it also captures the rage he inspired in his adversaries -- partly due to his flamboyant, combative style, but mostly because he wouldn't play by their rules.
  • The Top 10 People, Places, & Phrases Liberals Have Called Racist During The 2012 Campaign

    "Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness." -- Mary Frances Berry, the liberal former Chairwoman of the United States Commission on Civil Rights "Liberals claim Republicans speak in racist code words for the simple...
  • Rebuild America Defeat Obama Tour: Not a Dry Eye in The Place

    On the Rebuild America Defeat Obama national bus tour, we finale every rally with “God Bless the USA”. As the song is sung, vets in the audience are invited on stage. At our rally in Saint Clair Shores, MI, a very frail bent over gentleman, overflowing with dignity, slowly and methodically began making his way to the stage, assisted by his daughter. The old soldier was 92 year old WW II vet, Mr. Roher. Talk about an amazing moment, there was hardly a dry eye in the audience. Though unspoken, somehow Mr. Roher epitomized the pride, dignity and greatness of...

    CARSON CITY — Faced with rising costs, Gov. Brian Sandoval is backing off his promise to undo pay cuts imposed on state employees last year. Gerald Gardner, his chief of staff, said the governor has issued orders to agency heads to continue the reductions in the proposed 2014-15 budget. Gardner told the Nevada Appeal that Sandoval hasn't given up on efforts to undo the work furloughs, pay cuts, and suspension of merit and longevity pay imposed on state workers.

    Rep. Elijah Cummings needs someone in his office that knows election law to write his next letter attacking the Tea Party. This week, Cummings sent a nastygram letter to the Houston based Tea Party group True the Vote. The organization has been working to clean up the voter rolls of dead and ineligible voters. Apparently this sort of civic minded volunteerism rubbed Cummings the wrong way. The Baltimore Sun reported his threats to a group of law-abiding private citizens: In a letter to Texas-based True the Vote, the Baltimore Democrat argues that the group and its affiliates have been unsuccessful...

    Colleen Lachowicz is a Democratic candidate running for State Senate in Maine. She's also a level 85 orc in the massively popular online game "World of Warcraft." And for that, the Republican party says she is unfit for office. Maine's GOP has accused Lachowicz of living a "bizarre double life" and set up a website meant to out her participation in the popular online game -- a game that currently boasts some 10 million players around the world. Not only does the website show off a picture of the orc character she plays -- named Santiaga -- it also displays...

    Never mind the big-tent debate talk from both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney about how their respective politics will benefit all Americans. There’s a broader, ugly truth that as the last traces of purple fade from the electoral map, whoever wins will have little reason to take care of much of the country that rejected them. At least since the dissolving of the “solid South” in the late ’50s and early ’60s, both parties have competed to extend their reach to virtually every region. As recently as 1996, Democrat Bill Clinton could compete in the South, winning several states in...

    Tea Party Tribune ^ | October 4, 2012 | Jonathon Moseley
    ... The main reason in my view that Obama was crushed last night is that his entire campaign is based on LYING about Romney, and expecting everyone to just accept and believe his lies. When it was obvious that Obama was running against a ‘straw-man’ caricature misrepresenting Republican Mitt Romney, Obama collapsed and looked terrible. It wasn’t a question of delivery or demeanor or bringing his ‘A’ game. It was that Obama’s entire campaign against Romney is based upon spreading falsehoods about Romney, which Romney VERY effectively countered. (Many Republicans would have been in the same situation and failed to...
  • So, is Romney going to cut upper-income taxes over and above the Bush tax cuts - or not?

    Romney certainly had a spendid debate performance, but the back-and-forth quibbling over Romney wanting 5 trillion in new tax cuts over and above the Bush tax cuts, then Romney saying no he doesn't support that, then Obama saying yes you do, then Romney "no I don't," etc, etc - it all still left me with the central question: If Romney is elected president, will he cut taxes for upper-income earners over and above the Bush tax cuts. Yes or no? Romney can answer that and we can look back over his past statements on the matter - those during the...

    Via Breitbart, I would actually agree with the First Lady on this one — President Obama has demonstrated a rather disquieting level of comfort with circumventing a Congress that doesn’t agree on wholesaling his liberal agenda. But, as to why that’s supposed to be a positive thing… I’m not sure I’m getting it. (VIDEO AT LINK) MICHELLE OBAMA ON The TOM JOYNER MORNING SHOW: "Well, we’re understanding that, you know, you can have a president you love, but if you don’t have a congress that’s willing to work, you know, you wind up stalled in so many ways.

    So there I was, at the first 6th Congressional District debate, held by Commonwealth Magazine at North Shore Community College. Participants were, in alphabetic order, Fishman vs. Tierney vs. Tisei. This completes the only objectivity in this column. As a libertarian, I agreed with everything the Libertarian candidate Daniel Fishman eloquently said — especially his mini-poem about my primary concern this election: “Debt is the threat.” Hope this mantra lodges itself in every voter’s mind. Now moving on to the real race, which is between Richard Tisei, a nice young man (roughly my son’s age) whom I’ve known for almost...

    According To This Army Document, Tea Partiers And Twitter Users Are Potential Terrorists Geoffrey IngersollOctober 3, 2012 Words like 'terrorist' can always be turned around depending on who is the "authority." In the case of documents acquired by Spencer Ackerman of Wired's Danger Room, the U.S. Army takes a very liberal approach to it's definition of possible insider threats. As Ackerman said about the Army's Asymmetric Warfare Group's "Threat Indicator Card": [The document's] “indicators” of radicalization are vague enough to include both benign behaviors that lots of people safely exhibit and, on the other end of the spectrum, signs that...

    <p>What ever happened to the political power of Republican anger over President Obama’s health-care reform?</p> <p>GOP candidates used anxiety over changes to the nation’s health-care system - which they derisively called “Obamacare“ - to win big in the 2010 midterm elections. Earlier this year, it was conventional wisdom that Obama could not withstand the political rage against health-care reform in a general election.</p>
