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

    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.

    "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...

    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...

    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...

    ... 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...

Yes or no? Romney can answer that and we can look back over his past statements on the matter - those during the...

    Last month, I wrote that though Woody Allen once said that 80 percent of life is showing up, in politics it's more like 100 percent. With the election now just weeks away, that statement is looking truer and truer. The polls show the presidential race neck and neck. But that's among people who respond to polls. The actual election will hinge on who actually shows up to vote. Pollsters try to account for this with "likely voter" models, which adjust the raw data based on who's likely to go to the trouble to vote not just spout off to a...

Professor Perliger explains that the "anti-federalist trend" to which he refers is "usually identified in the literature as the 'militia' or 'patriot' movement." In other words, he is teaching our military cadets that anti-federalists--the ideological descendants of George Mason, Patrick Henry and other "extremists"--along with militias (that which the Bill of Rights identifies as being "necessary to the security of...

Since 2009, members of the K&N Patriots have waved signs from 10 a.m to noon at the busy intersection, usually along the east side of Highway K. The often hand-made signs usually touch on familiar conservative themes — repeal "Obamacare" and President Barack Obama, restore liberty, protect the right to bear arms, cut government spending and remember veterans. The signs were much the same on Sept. 15 — "Repeal Obama,” “Stop Spending”...

    Liberals have never answered the question: what of those who do not choose to join in a "common end" that government has chosen for them? What of those who refuse to "belong to government"? These unfortunate souls must be dealt with, as Obama's departments and agencies are dealing with them: by silencing them, litigating against them, jailing them, and ruining their businesses and reputations. Those tactics, and more, were exactly what European leftists from Mussolini to Stalin resorted to. Obama's tactics include his continual attacks on the opposition for what he calls "partisan bickering" -- a charge he repeated on...

    Almost every state in the U.S. has made cuts to its public-employee pensions, seeking to dig out from the economic downturn, but so far the measures have fallen well short of bridging a nearly $1 trillion funding gap. Since 2009, 45 states have rolled back pension benefits for teachers, police, firefighters and other public workers, including cuts by Michigan and California this month. Next week, Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich is expected to sign legislation requiring, for example, that certain teachers work longer and pay more toward their pensions.

  • Where’s the Tea Party? Spending in Washington continues to go up and debt deepens

    The 2010 midterm elections showed the American people want to tackle crushing federal debt before it’s too late. The Tea Party succeeded in handing control of the House of Representatives to Republicans, which thwarted White House plans for another massive stimulus program. That majority switch in one chamber hasn’t been enough. Outlays have continued to grow year-after-year with annual deficits topping $1 trillion. The red ink will deepen later this week as the Senate is expected to approve a House-passed continuing resolution that maxes discretionary spending and adds another $106 billion in disaster and war spending that wasn’t offset. This...

    “Government ’help’ to business is just as disastrous as government persecution... the only way a government can be of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off.” That is what Ayn Rand has to say about government involvement in the world of business, but the full extent of this practice is difficult to nail down. Tad DeHaven of the CATO Institute investigated the situation to determine exactly how deep the problem runs. Periodically, CATO analyzes the federal budget to ascertain exactly how much money our government shovels out to favored parties. Unfortunately, over the years both parties have...

    Two hundred and twenty-five years ago this week - right here in Philadelphia, "where it all began" - America's Founding Fathers went public with a proposed Constitution promising more democracy than the world had ever seen. Even so, in September 1787, "We the People" basically meant "We the Men." This year, the fate of this manly constitutional project rests more than ever in the hands of women. More women than men will cast votes in November. Just for fun, imagine that women were to vote as a unified bloc. Virtually every election in America at every level of government -...

    Dear Friends, Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, announced the “Winning for America” national bus tour today. The tour will travel through 25 battleground states that are key to conservatives’ victories in November.For the complete tour schedule, click here. This week the President and his party will be bragging about their legislative success, and rightfully so. After an $825 billion dollar stimulus, Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, and the Auto Bailout, President Obama and the Democratic Congress got everything they wanted. The unfortunate truth is that these policies have failed to yield the results that were promised...

    Youtube user Bigone5555J found a photo of one of the Birth Certificates given to Obama's attorneys by the Hawaii Department of Health on April 25, 2011. You might recall that after Obama released his long form in a Pdf for the public to download on April 27, 2011, NBC's Savannah Guthrie boasted she was allowed to look at and feel the seal on Obama's Birth Certificate and reported that it said Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. She also took a picture of it and posted that photo on site called Lockerz.com. The photo she took can be seen here:...

    The Daily Telegraph ^ | September 9, 2012 | Dr. Tim Stanley, Oxford University
    Barack Obama has got his post-convention poll bounce, giving him a fresh 4 point lead. But I still think Romney can win in November. Whenever I tell that to a British audience, they react with horror and surprise. Often all they get to see of American politics is the televised highlights of Obama’s best speeches, accompanied by footage of a Republican demanding the return of witch burning. In the British imagination, the 2012 fight is between a charismatic centrist and a wackadoodle Right-winger with more money than sense. Given how plain the choice is, Obama simply has to win. And...
  • (vanity) Contact your senators to vote NO on S.3369, the Disclosure Act

    Contact your senators to vote NO on S.3369, the Disclose Act, which would violate our 1st Amendment rights by forcing organizations like ours to turn over membership and contributor lists to the federal government. Liberal media and leftwing attacks against conservative political donors show the danger and expose the true intent, to stifle free, conservative speech. This bill would create complex regulation of political spending and campaign activity, also non-partisan lobbying like ours, causing expensive costs to comply with the regs, and subsequently chill free speech. The administrative burdens would smother conservative organizations.

    In response to the Sept. 1 letter “Color of your skin still matters in this country”: How right the writer is. Remember President Obama’s State of the Union address when a legislator shouted out “You lie!”? I am 59 years old and have never seen any president so disrespected. How about the tea party’s “we want our country back”? That’s blatant racism. Remember Donald Trump leading the Republican primary? He forced Obama to show his birth certificate again. Trump had no intention of running for president. He doesn’t want his business dealings to be scrutinized. No one can say where...
