  • Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders on VA Scandal: “People Die Every Day” (Video)

    Gateway Pundit ^ | May 24, 2014 | Jim Hoft
    On may 15, 2014 Senate Socialist Bernie Sanders went on CNN to defend the VA adminisration. Sanders told Chris Cuomo: “People die every day.”(VIDEO-AT-LINK)The Examiner reported: In a recent exchange with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, sparks flew as the CNN anchor held Sanders to task if the secret scheduling delays at the Phoenix medical facility led to negligent death. As Sanders attempted to get off that vein of discussion: "We know that people die every day. We don’t know why they die. All right – anyhow, Chris, I don’t want to argue that point until the cows come home. Here’s what...
  • Howard Dean: “Republicans Aren’t American!”

    Powerline ^ | May 20, 2014 | John Hinderaker
    A terrible sort of insanity has gripped the Democratic Party. On almost a daily basis, when you see the party’s leaders in action, you want to start edging toward the door, murmuring “Nice doggie. Nice doggie.” Today it was Howard Dean (filmed a week ago, but seen on YouTube today). He was addressing a Democratic crowd in Colorado, and went off on a tirade against Republicans. Yes, he really did say that Republicans aren’t American. And that they should stay away from the United States, and go to Russia where they belong. One gets the feeling that if the Democrats...

    The Hill ^ | June 4, 2011 | Alexander Bolton
    Howard Dean, the former Democratic National Committee chairman who helped Democrats capture the White House in 2008, warns that Sarah Palin could defeat President Obama in 2012. Dean says his fellow Democrats should beware of inside-the-Beltway conventional wisdom that Obama would crush Palin in a general-election contest next year. “I think she could win,” Dean told The Hill in an interview Friday. “She wouldn’t be my first choice if I were a Republican but I think she could win.” Dean warns the sluggish economy could have more of a political impact than many Washington strategists and pundits assume. “Any time...

    The Vanderbilt Hustler ^ | November 30, 2010 | Kyle Blaine
    The Tea Party is not the significant force that Tea Partiers think it is, Democratic politician Howard Dean told a class of Vanderbilt students yesterday. The former governor of Vermont and Democratic national committee chairman called into “Political Campaigns and the Electoral Process” taught by Professor of Political Science John Geer and Adjunct Political Science Professor Roy Neel to discuss the effects of the Tea Party on the 2012 presidential election. “I think in addition to a bad economy, the Tea Party arose out of a discomfort with the demographic shift going on in this country,” Dean said. According the...

    The World According To Roger at Open Salon ^ | September 7, 2010 | Roger Fallihee
    It's been widely reported that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel will soon leave to run for mayor of Chicago. The White House is said to be unhappy with the timing of Mayor Daley's announcement that he will not seek reelection, but they should be thrilled. Emanuel's reputation as an iron-fisted dictator has probably, on balance, been helpful to President Obama's agenda, but the progressive left, Obama's natural supporters, have been unhappy with Emanuel's willingness to cut unsavory deals with Republicans who will never support the president. The biggest problem facing Democrats in the 2010 midterms is that their...

    Vermont Right to Life is the latest statewide pro-life organization to back Fred Thompson's bid for the Republican nomination for president. Their endorsement follows on the heels of those from state pro-life groups in West Virginia, New York, Wyoming, and Wisconsin. In a statement sent to LifeNews.com, Sharon Toborg, treasurer of the Vermont Right to Life Political Committee, says the endorsement reflects Thompson's consistent pro-life views and his ability to win the nomination and general election. “It is great that so many candidates in the Republican Primary are pro-life and have been strong friends of the pro-life effort," she said....

    Last night, I was told that a report was recently published by some DC think-tank. This report ranked members of congress in order of taxpayer-friendliness, i.e. it examined their votes on tax-related bills and determined where any particular member of congress came in on higher or lower taxes for their constituents. The same person who told me about the report told me that a whopping 75% of house and senate members from my state were in the top 20 LEAST friendly to taxpayers in their voting records. Have any of you heard of this report? Can you point me to...

  • Why Spanish Election results are irrelevent to US War on Terror

    Journalists, political pundits and other Hysteric Left activists are desperately trying to spin some cosmic significance out of Sunday's Spanish elections. The "conventional wisdom" is that the Spanish Election results are some sort of significant defeat for President Bush and the War on Terror. As usual the "News Media's" thinking is neither conventional nor wise. What all the various activists miss is the reality of American Exceptionalism. As much as the International Political Left hates, and try's to deny, the reality is the USA operates on a completely different political level then the rest of the world. On Sunday, the...

    Accuracy In Media ^ | Paul Weyrich
    The reason for my apology was that throughout this primary season we have been hearing about the record turnout of voters participating in Democrat caucuses and primaries. I bought the lie. The truth is that, except for Iowa and New Hampshire, there has not been any sort of record turnout for the Democrats. Even in New Hampshire the vote was far less than what the Republicans had when they last had a contested primary in 2000. The Democrats this year had 219,787 votes in their primary. The GOP in 2000 had 239,523 votes. That 20,000 difference is major in a...

Please take a moment and vist the New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, CBS, NBC and ABC etc to email the Omsbudsman, the Publisher, the News Editor and demand to know why they allowed clearly partisan advocates of Kerry's Presidential Campaign were presented on their "News" programs with no reference to their ties to the Kerry camp. We absolutely must demand the "News Media" be held accountable for their free advertising for the Kerry camp.

    Outgoing Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy defended his handling of the Committee this week in a statement. "During these 15 months, we joined forces with the House Judiciary Committee to enact the first new charter for the Justice Department in two decades, and we launched the first comprehensive oversight of the FBI in just as long. We enacted new anti-terrorism laws, and I hope our close oversight of these laws, and of the FBI, will continue," said Leahy in a statement. President Bush and the Republicans had been accusing Senate Democrats of unfairly blocking his judicial nominations for months,...
