    By Mr. Curmudgeon:We can all breathe a sigh of relief. 150 observers of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a United Nations-affiliated elections watchdog, will be on hand this November 6 to assure America's presidential balloting is fair and clean.Just in case you were wondering, no, they won't be monitoring Chicago's electoral corruption - where eager souls vote early and often, or that rise from the dead just for the occasion.According to The Hill, the NAACP, ACLU and the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights approached the OSCE to express their concern that Republicans were engaging...
  • A tax on politicians? It's an offer they can't refuse

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | 10/19/2012 | John Kass
    American politicians are always on the lookout for "new sources of revenue," which sounds a lot nicer than "sinking their fangs into our necks." But however you describe it, they just can't stop sucking our blood with their unending tax increases on the national, state and local levels. They tax our gas, our houses, our sodas. They tax our smokes, they tax our roads, they tax our health care and our paychecks, and after we've paid, they even tax our deaths. Cutting government is painful for them. Their mantra? "Government can't afford a tax cut." So they tax us instead,...

    politico ^ | 10-20-12 | Joe Scarborough
    "Why is the Tea Party destroying the Republican Party?” That’s a leading question that I have been asked repeatedly from media pundits and Democratic politicians over the past three years. Over that time, Democratic politicians and media pundits have almost universally accused the Tea Party of bringing ruin to the Grand Old Party. According to this skewed narrative, Republican leaders were once bipartisan, rational and almost worthy of getting invitations to Georgetown cocktail parties. Now they are Manchurian candidates held captive by the right-wing beasts whose only goal is to infect the minds of real-life Nick Brodys who dominate the...

    Drifting around the dial this morning, I happened on MSNBC's Weekends With Alex Witt. Within a few minutes, I was stunned by two Witt whiffs, to wit: 1. Criticizing the Tea Party's lack of "diverse thinking," she asked Joe Scarborough "how much has the Tea Party damaged the Republican party?" Joe gently explained that far from damaging the GOP, the Tea Party propelled it to historic landslide victories in 2010. 2. Witt later cast the Salt Lake Tribune's endorsement of Barack Obama as a "surprise," ignoring the fact that in 2008, the Salt Lake Tribune endorsed . . . Barack...

    There are those who say that the tea party is fading in influence, but nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the movement is on the cusp of achieving what once seemed nearly impossible: keeping the Senate Democratic. A year ago, famed political handicapper Charlie Cook gave Republicans a 60 percent to 70 percent likelihood of capturing control of the Senate; now, he tells me the likelihood of it remaining Democratic is 60 percent. The switch in fortunes can be attributed to many causes — a slate of lackluster Republican candidates high among them — but one thing...

    Call it racist, call it unfair, call it whatever you like: As a political ad, the Tea Party Victory Fund “Obamaphone lady” ad is a masterpiece. The genius is in combining the simple facts-and-figures stuff (one in seven Americans on food stamps, etc.) with the way-out-of-left-field Obamaphone lady, who, even though she doesn’t seem to know that the phone-subsidy program was launched under the Reagan administration, expresses something true (in gross, cartoon form; i.e., in perfect political-ad form) about the entitlement mentality that anti-Obama (as opposed to pro-Romney) voters abhor intensely. The music is an inspired touch, too. This ad...

    Delaware Politis ^ | October 18, 2012 | Jonathon Moseley
    Much of what is happening in the Delaware Republican Party is driven by two sharply-conflicting strategies for how to win elections. In a Democrat-dominated State with 297,112 registered Democrats (47.4%), 180,542 registered Republicans (28.8%) and 148,695 registered “Other” (23.7%), how can a Republican win? STRATEGY # 1 (the Echo Strategy): For a Republican to win (other than in a GOP dominated R.D. or if no serious Democrat is running) the Republican nominee must be similar to a Democrat. If the voters like Democrats, then the Republican must also be just like a Democrat. STRATEGY #2 (the Difference Strategy): To attract...

Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting. “We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.” Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted...

    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.

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.

    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...

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...

The actual election will hinge on who actually shows up to vote.

    Mitt Romney has muddied his message on the GOP's signature issue of taxes at a time of growing frustration in the party about the direction of his campaign. Now struggling in the polls, the Republican nominee said this week that President Obama had not raised taxes and downplayed the tax relief in his own proposal... "It's not a particularly compelling message to tell people you're not going to see much of a tax cut in the way most people think of tax cuts," said Jim Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute... Larry Kudlow, a prominent supply-side commentatot said he was...

    EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the third in an occasional series of stories based on meetings between The Telegraph editorial board and candidates running for federal and state offices in the Nov. 6 general election. The first time former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter ran for office, she had just returned from New Orleans soon after Hurricane Katrina, where she found people struggling and abandoned by their government. Now, six years later, she worries Congress is heading down the same road. “In 2006, I said the poor have fallen and the middle class are stumbling, and it has not gotten easier,” Shea-Porter, who...

    For a group of Tea Party activists, their mission to change the direction of the United States continues every Saturday at highways K and N in O'Fallon. 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”...

    n the morning hours of August 5, 2012, the Sikh temple at Oak Creek, Wisconsin, was crowded with children and mothers engaged in preparations for the Langar, a traditional Sikh communal meal scheduled to be held later that day. At around 10:00 AM, Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old from nearby Cudahy, Wisconsin, arrived in the temple parking lot and started firing at the temple’s inhabitants using a pistol purchased several days earlier. He then entered the temple and continued his killing spree until he was gunned down by police forces that arrived to the site. At that point, he had...

    Great video. It appears that Obama's best friend and roommate, Sohale Siddiqi was more than a friend. Perhaps this explains the wedding ring he wore for years before he married Michelle.

    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...

    Hello Patriots. I am in Las Vegas preparing to co-host the Rebuild America- Defeat Obama Telethon tomorrow, Tuesday, September 25th. http://www.facebook.com/events/353595554729030/While working out in the hotel gym this morning to keep my Diabetes in-check, I caught an interview with Carol Burnett on TV. The sound was turned down so I did not hear the interview. But, seeing Miss Burnett brought a smile to my face; fond childhood memories of our entire family laughing hysterically watching her program. Despite her horrific childhood, this courageous woman persevered. Using her God given talents, Miss Burnett “built” an extraordinary career, creating a legacy which...

    The Baltimore Sun ^ | September 23, 2012 | Stephen L. Sewell
    Let me get this straight: a spontaneous movement arises and takes up the name "Tea Party" based on historical actions and the acronym "taxed enough already," amasses a very large number of either followers or sympathizers, and literally reverses the party breakdown in the U.S. House of Representatives and state-level assemblies, but it is not worth receiving any reporting. When it is reported upon, the items are buried deep within the pages of The Sun and are usually flippant or derogatory in nature. Adherents are perceived as backward, ignorant, uneducated and subject to every epithet that can be used in...

    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.
  • Terence Corcoran: Ayn Rand — still the most dangerous woman in America

    Veteran American libertarian author and activist Jerome Tuccille once wrote a book titled It Usually Begins with Ayn Rand. Not true in my case. For me it all began with Walt Whitman, the 19th-century mystic whose mesmerizing American poetry helped turn me into a free market individualist. “I celebrate myself, and sing myself…” But that’s another story. These days, I find what began with Walt Whitman is usually fired up in me now by leftist economists who promote big government, Occupy activists who attack corporate greed and politicians who cravenly exploit class warfare over allegedly expanding inequality. Which is how...
