  • The Democrats are Finally Looking at Why They Lost–The Surprising Answer is a Vindication of Us All

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    When a party loses an election, the first thing they traditionally do is reflect on why they lost and how better to ensure victory next time around. But it has taken the Democrats a while to get to this position. They first began the blame game: Racists and Misogynists etc… Then they tried to hold up all government business to make Donald Trump seem ineffectual (it takes a lot of cash to pay these protestors day in day out). And finally, they decided to get to the business of opposition government and examine their mistakes. And what they found should...
  • Am I losing my mind?

    Am I losing my mind? Donald Trump gives me the creeps at times. He offends my Christianity. His persona turns me off. He can be all other the map in terms of consistent principles. But there is something inside of me that wants him to kick the stuffing out of the powers that be. Even though I am a Cruz man I could see myself voting for the guy. Am I losing my mind?

A seismic shift in ObamaCare sentiment on Capitol Hill. Now several Democratic lawmakers, President Obama's health care allies, are calling for heads to roll. But that's not all. Also breaking tonight, Democrats up for re- election in 2014 are scrambling to find solutions to the problem of that crumbling website, including many of them calling for the extension of the enrollment period.

    It is a scandal that there has been and will be no serious jail time in the matter of former Republican majority leader Tom DeLay — Ronnie Earle, the hyperpartisan Democratic prosecutor whose risible case against DeLay has just been finally thrown out by the Third District Texas Court of Appeals, richly deserves to be measured for an all-orange wardrobe. After eleven years, the matter of Mr. DeLay’s fund-raising in the 2002 election cycle has been finally put to rest, with Mr. Earle’s case having been vivisected by Justice Melissa Goodwin, who in her quietly scathing opinion did not bother...
  • Was Mitt Romney Right About Everything? From Russia to Detroit, his fans say they’ve been vindicated

    Ten months after Mitt Romney shuffled off the national stage in defeat — consigned, many predicted, to a fate of instant irrelevance and permanent obscurity — Republicans are suddenly celebrating the presidential also-ran as a political prophet. From his widely mocked warnings about a hostile Russia to his adamant opposition to the increasingly unpopular implementation of Obamacare, the ex-candidate’s canon of campaign rhetoric now offers cause for vindication — and remorse — to Romney’s friends, supporters, and former advisers. “I think about the campaign every single day, and what a shame it is who we have in the White House,”...

    Emily Koczela had been anxiously waiting for months for Wisconsin governor Scott Walker’s controversial budget repair bill to take effect. Koczela, the finance director for the Brown Deer school district, had been negotiating with the local union, trying to get it to accept concessions in order to make up for a $1 million budget shortfall. But the union wouldn’t budge. “We laid off 27 [teachers] as a precautionary measure,” Koczela told me. “They were crying. Some of these people are my friends.” On June 29 at 12:01 a.m., Koczela could finally breathe a sigh of relief. The budget repair bill​—​delayed...

    The Examiner ^ | November 15, 2010 | Dr. Michael Williams
    A New York Times Columnist, Paul Krugman, touched the third rail of Obamacare Sunday, while on ABC's 'This Week' when he made a statement confirming the need for 'death panels' as a means of containing health care costs (see video). Krugman is not the first person who has advocated the use of 'death panels' and yet liberals excoriated Sarah Palin for pointing out that the Obamacare bill contains what many on the left have said needed to be done. During the discussion, which was about the Deficit Commission's recent recommendations on cutting expenses, Krugman made his statement in response to...

"There is violent Islamic terrorism, be it Al Qaeda in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen or anywhere else, [and] that is indeed a major focus of this department and its efforts."

    Texas for Sarah Palin ^ | Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 4:00 PM | Josh Painter
    TWS' Michael Goldfarb at The Blog quotes a CBS News story: The Obama administration has privately concluded that a cap and trade law would cost American taxpayers up to $200 billion a year, the equivalent of hiking personal income taxes by about 15 percent. A previously unreleased analysis prepared by the U.S. Department of Treasury says the total in new taxes would be between $100 billion to $200 billion a year. At the upper end of the administration's estimate, the cost per American household would be an extra $1,761 a year.Remember how the Obamunists beat up on Sarah Palin for...

    The ruckus over the Rush Limbaugh "phony soldiers" statement is dying down. It ought not to. There is a huge story here. What did Rush say? In a Sept. 26 conversation with a caller to his program who claimed the media never interview "real soldiers," but just people out of the blue, Rush added for emphasis, "the phony soldiers." The left saw its opportunity and pounced with a vengeance. Led by the George Soros-funded and Hillary Clinton-inspired Media Matters outfit, it unleashed a scorched-earth attack on Limbaugh for insulting the military, stating that any servicemen or women who might oppose...

    A Community High School student has set down a burden he says had weighed heavy on his heart since last year, when his father accused the school's vice principal of child abuse during the boy's paddling. "He said he was going to sue the school and I was, like, 'No, let's don't,' because I knew what the bruise was from, but he said, 'We'll get money out of this,'" said Samuel Lee "Leroy" Manus, 15, son of Freddy Manus, an inmate at Rutherford County Jail. Best known at school as Lee, the freshman had been sent to vice principal Keith...

    War On Terror: George Bush and Tony Blair have been ceaselessly lambasted for charting a new course to defend the free world against terrorism. The foiling of the British airline plot proves how right they've been. But these two leaders have been right all along in recognizing the magnitude of what the civilized world faces, and the extraordinary measures required in defending us against this new threat. Right there are two areas in which Bush has been attacked: the National Security Agency's international phone monitoring and the Treasury Department's surveillance of international financial transactions. And it's now more obvious than...

Here are a few remarkable facts jubilantly reported soon after polling closed by the widely read Iraqi blogger based in Baghdad, "Mohammed of Iraq The Model": - Security provided by the new Iraqi army and police was much improved since the last two elections, in January and October; - The registered voters list was increased, adding...

  • Why Democrats Want So Desperately To Destroy Karl Rove - (Cooper email totally vindicates Rove!)

    In 2004, CNN interviewed White House Deputy Chief of Staff and past advisor to President Bush, Karl Rove about the Valerie Plame issue where members of the media had written stories based on ‘insider’ information that had supposedly ‘outed’ her as a CIA undercover operative. Rove told CNN, “I didn’t know her name. I didn’t leak her name.” Before getting into the nuances of the case, one fact needs to be addressed. It still has yet to be verified if Mrs. Plame was actually ‘outed’ as a covert undercover operative. It has been reported several times that at the time...
