    And just think…. It was only a few short hours ago that far left Wisconsin candidate JoAnne Kloppenburg declared victory in the state’s Supreme Court race. Now this. Watch the first 36 seconds of her victory speech if you want a good laugh. [Video] From the video: Question: "How do you feel comfortable declaring victory when the margin is so thin? Justice Prosser’s supporters seem to think that they may be able to pull out a victory in a recount process." Kloppenburg: "You know, we ran a campaign that was focused on being positive and respectful and winning and we...

    Today, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, appeared at an event hosted at Boise State University in Idaho. His appearance was part of nationwide effort, entitled “Conversation with the Country”, which is intended to strengthen community support for veterans. I was able to attend the townhall where Adm. Mullen made brief remarks and then invited audience members to ask questions not only related to veteran services but also national security matters. The main theme of his prepared remarks centered on the reintegration of our veterans into their communities and the need for support systems to aid...

    Texas Rep. Ron Paul has won the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2012 presidential preference straw poll of 3,742 activists, the chairman of the huge annual gathering of conservative activists announced on Saturday. The poll, sponsored this year for the first time by The Washington Times, is seen as one of the earliest tests of grassroots popularity among the party’s dominant conservative wing, and Mr. Paul, who ran unsuccessfully for the nomination in 2008, has traditionally done well in the CPAC voting. The Republican lawmaker, long a favorite of the party’s libertarian wing, took 30 percent of the votes cast,...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 3 February, 2011 | Ryan Finn
    World War II sidearm. Which weapon springs to mind? 1911? Luger? These two pistols are arguably the most iconic pistols of that massive conflict. Revolvers? By the time the second half of the War to End All Wars rolled around, fighting six guns were relegated to historical footnotes. Living on only through the legends of John Wayne and Doc Holliday, right? Wrong. Smith & Wesson revolvers went to war. Smith & Wesson produced produced one gun less than 40,000 ”Victory” revolvers for U.S. troops. And another 571,629 for the Commonwealth countries. I’m willing to bet that more than a few...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 01/21/2011 | Tom Petruno
    The Federal Reserve's massive money-printing campaign of the last two years has had one central goal: Make sure the U.S. doesn't lead the global economy into the black hole of deflation. It may be time to declare "mission accomplished." Around the world, many countries aren't confronted with the debilitating forces of deflation, or falling prices and wages, but the opposite — inflation. Rising prices, particularly for food, have fueled credit-tightening moves by China, India, Brazil, Australia and other nations in recent months. Even in Europe, where a government-debt crisis is a serious drag on overall economic growth, annualized inflation in...

    Assemblyman Ted Gaines won the Senate District 1 special election race with 63.2 percent of the vote as reported by the California Secretary of State’s office at 11 p.m. Tuesday. The Associated Press called the race for Gaines, R-Roseville, as he led over Mayor Ken Cooley, D-Rancho Cordova. The pair emerged as the top vote-getters in their parties after the special primary Nov. 2. Cooley had 36.8 percent of the vote as of 11 p.m. The seat was formerly held by Sen. Dave Cox, R-Fair Oaks, who died last summer.

    Yesterday, we dodged a bullet with the failure of the DREAM act. (I know some of you believe it may rear its head again this session; we'll see.) Anyway, the radical amnesty element of the Democrat party is up in arms at that defeat. Yesterday, we had DADT get repealed. The repeal wouldn't be so bad, but that lowlife Lieberman is putting an amendment for the 2011 Defense Authorization Act Wednesday that will repeal U.S.C. 10 625, making sodomy in the military o.k. Aside from the whole 'these undermine America thing' (and I know they do), these two items have...

    Score one for the lady, and she remained a lady even as Chris Matthews displayed what a moron he is. Matthews is a sore, sore loser– ungracious, rude, and revolting in his behavior towards Michelle Bachmann as she stood among “her team” and celebrated their win last night. But, I’ve got to hand it to her– she dished it right back and all with a smile! Matthews continued to ask her moronic questions to which Michelle Bachmann graciously put up with until he began to accuse of her of being in “a trance.” Bachmann responded,”I think people are thrilling tonight,...

  • Boehner Gives Emotional Speech as House Goes Repub

    11/02/2010 9:11:02 PM PDT · by what's up · 48 replies
    Boehner congratulates the American people for voting right in these elections. As he speaks of his background where he worked liked crazy at odd jobs to make his way and the loss of American core values in America, he breaks down several times. Boehner has had the confidence of the GOP House members because they find him trustworthy and his conservative bona fides are solid. I think he's going to do the US proud. (BTW...I saw Boehner break down publicly two other times...once when he was terribly upset about the Dems blocking funding for our troops...the other when he was...

    Democrats condemn media's early projections of Republican victoryCable TV networks award the GOP control of the House of Representatives -- based on projections rather than actual results. Democrats are not amused, and predict their party will continue to control the House. By Michael Muskal 9:46 p.m. CDT, November 2, 2010 Even before the polls closed in the West, the major television cable networks called the overall election a Republican victory and awarded the GOP control of the House of Representatives. The only problem was that the call came from projections rather than actual results, since polls were still open in...

    As we head into the weekend before the election, this is our last good chance to get a wide perspective on what's headed toward us, and the question is: how big is the wave? We know there's a big wave headed into shore that's going to wash a fair number of incumbent Democrats out to sea. We've seen it darkening the horizon for a few weeks, but only now is it getting close enough that we can start to judge the size of the wave and guess at exactly how many deserving victims it is going to claim. We know...

    Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) penned a fundraising letter for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) on Friday asking voters to consider the morning after the election. In one scenario, Franken wrote, it's "8 a.m. You stumble out of bed. Make some oatmeal. Turn on the TV to find out what happened in that Senate race, the one that was too close to call all night. But you gave $5 to the DSCC … And, lo and behold, your favorite Democrat ... pulled it out by a few votes. Oatmeal never tasted so sweet."

    Guantanamo Bay, Cuba - It took less than an hour inside a sombre military courtroom Monday for Canadian Omar Khadr to plead guilty to murdering an American soldier and end a war crimes case that has dragged on for eight years. The Toronto-born detainee told military judge Army Col. Patrick Parrish that he understood the charges, his confession, and the conditions of a plea agreement. In addition to pleading guilty to throwing a grenade when he was 15 that fatally wounded Sgt. First Class Christopher Speer, Khadr is convicted of attempted murder, spying, conspiracy and providing material support to terrorism.

    London, United Kingdom. Great Britain is to re-launch Nelson's former flagship HMS Victory as the latest defence cuts have reduced the Royal Navy to one ship. With the anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar on the 21st October, the British Government has said that the Royal Navy will refloat Victory to fill the gap until new ships are built to protect the country. Prime Minister David Cameron said that he had reluctantly decided to reduce the navy to one ship and instead divert resources to fight the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan. He said this was a tough decision...

    Following up on her highly effective Taxman, Christine O’Donnell team has released this absolutely crushing indictment of Coons simply named “Michael.“ In the latest polling Christine has cut Coon’s lead in half. This race is incredibly winnable. A lot is made of sending money to candidates, and Christine has certainly raised a good amount, all in small donations from patriots who want to send a true Common Sense Conservative to Washington. But money alone can’t win elections. It takes boots on the ground. An aggressive get out the vote effort. I know many of our readers are already involved in...
