  • Did “Project Orca” Cost Romney the Election by Diverting Resources

    SCARY THOUGHT: Did “Project Orca” Cost Romney the Election by Diverting Resources to Failing Computer Program? One of the big differences between Democrats and Republicans is that when Republicans lose an election, the knives come out and they eat their own. We’ll be seeing this for the next few years — much like we did after the McCain campaign — with Cocktail Party GOP operatives lashing out at various members of the Romney staff, blaming them for the loss in order to elevate themselves and get exposure for their own careers on tee-vee. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s campaign manager, is a...

    The far left Washington DC based Institute for Policy Studies is the "ideas factory" behind the communist/socialist aligned Congressional Progressive Caucus and the wider Obama Administration. If you want to know what the Democrats will do tomorrow, read what I.P.S. is advocating today. For example I.P.S. staffer Chuck Collins recommended that Obama appoint communist Van Jones as a "Green Jobs Czar", even before the 2008 election. Now I.P.S. staffer Karen Dolan makes a shocking but partially true claim regarding the 2010 mid term elections......Progressives WON!Dolan explains that I.P.S.'s baby, the hard left, nearly 80 strong Congressional Progressive Caucus, remained largely...
  • ABC News: Year After Obama Won Nobel, World Looks for Signs of Peace

    One year after the Nobel prize jury made its controversial decision to award President Obama the prize for world peace, a larger jury is still waiting for the president to live up to those lofty expectations. Even some of Obama's allies -- like former Nobel laureates Al Gore and Jimmy Carter -- declined to assess his performance in fulfilling what the peace prize said was his "vision" of world harmony. The one year anniversary of Obama's prize comes as fighting is escalating in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq continues to smolder and Obama struggles to keep fledgling Middle East peace...

    A billfold bursting with Benjamins can make you look like a rock star, but sitting on a fat stack of low-value bills is just a pain in the … you know. In South Korea, where the highest denomination of bank note is the 10,000-won bill — worth around $6.50 on Friday — a night out on the town means a wallet stuffed to the seams. Paying your rent by cash? Better bring an armored car. But the weighty situation will improve in June, when the Bank of Korea begins circulating 50,000-won notes. The bank unveiled the final design of the...

    The truth is often overlooked in a sea of lies and mischaracterizations. The truth is not someones opinion or away of looking at something, it is simply the truth. Gen. Giap planned and directed military operations against the French and defeated them in 1954 in the battle of Dien Bien Phu. The NVA under the command of Gen, Giap planned the now famed and offten lied about Tet Offensive against the United States in 1968. In his book Gen. Giap plainly shows that the NVA had few supplies and had been defeated in battle time and time again. The NVA...

    (3rd LD) Korean won plunges to 27-month low to greenback SEOUL, March 17 (Yonhap) -- The South Korean currency on Monday tumbled to a 27-month low against the U.S. dollar amid a global credit crunch, raising concerns over a buildup in inflationary pressures. The local currency closed at 1,029.20 won to the U.S. dollar, down 31.9 won from Friday's close and the weakest close since Dec. 12, 2005 when it finished at 1,033.7 won to the greenback. The won's daily loss was the biggest since Aug. 6 1998 when the local currency fell by 70 won to the dollar. The...

    Venezuela's Hugo Chavez says he wants to send oil to $200 a barrel. Robert Zubrin has a plan to stop him. In his just released book, Energy Victory: Winning the War on Terror by Breaking Free of Oil, Zubrin, an American aerospace engineer known previously primarily for his inventive approach to Mars exploration, lays out the strategy. To say the book is remarkable, would be a severe understatement. Combining soaring idealism, incisive thinking, and a viscous [sic -- a funny inadvertent pun] go-for-throat killer instinct in a single package, Energy Victory is the first book I have ever read that...

    Hizbullah won the Second Lebanon War by achieving a propaganda victory over Israel, a Harvard University study has concluded. Aided and abetted by a compliant and credulous press, Hizbullah achieved victory by convincing the world that Israel was the aggressor and that Israel's retaliatory offensive was a "disproportionate" response to the kidnapping and killing of its soldiers.

    Reagan won the Cold War. Why do Democrats and Liberal intellectuals in Academia refute this? They really sit there with their legs crossed pretending to know everything? Why don't they talk a lot about the Cold War? Is it because eventually someone will have to say "how did that whole thing end? Who won the global war of ideologies? Oh yeah, Reagan won it for capitalism." Isn't this whole issue pretty seriously overlooked? Well, not anymore, here's an article that will prove it to all the dumbass Liberals out there!

    Ohh, poor Liberals! I guess they'll just have to pucker up and swallow this hard evidence that shows how Ronald Reagan won the Cold War. This one is going to taste like Jaegermeister and battery acid! The article shows how Reagan's foreign policy towards the Soviets forced their regime to collapse, and how Reagan essentially caused the fall of worldwide communism. It also points out that Liberal Academia/intellectuals seem to avoid this, one of the greatest political victories in the history of the world. God Bless Ronald Reagan-one of the biggest bada$$ tough guys this country has ever produced! And...

    North Korea has agreed to give up all its nuclear programs and return to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, China's Xinhua news agency is reporting. In return, the secretive communist country will get oil and power aid, reported South Korea's Yonhap news agency on Monday. North Korea will also have the right to a civilian nuclear program if it regains international trust, Yonhap said. The developments come at international talks being held in Beijing to convince North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program.

     The NAU College Republicans have exceeded my expectations this year. I’m very proud of the club and of all the events and activities we have accomplished together. When people come together and rally behind a strong leader like President George W. Bush there is an enthusiasm and excitement that is hard to extinguish. Our club has volunteered countless hours doing Pre-Bush rallies, phone banking, walking door to door, prescient walking, and has traveled across the State to ensure that Arizona stays Bush-Country. Throughout this election we have had the Republican Party Headquarters vandalized, Bush/Cheney bumper stickers removed from cars, yard...

    Kerry Wins Third Debate Sen. John Kerry won the third and final presidential debate Wednesday night, 52% to 39%, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup survey of registered voters who watched the event. About 4 in 10 viewers said they felt more favorable about the senator because of the debate, a third more than said that about President George W. Bush. Kerry also beat the president by double digits on being able to handle the issue of healthcare, expressing himself clearly, showing he cares about the needs of people, and having a good understanding of the issues.

    Kerry won Vietnam vets' wrath describing what he couldn't see BY HAROLD W.

But with most of the news media looking the other way, John Kerry has been getting away with it so far. I refer to Kerry's gamble that the news media won't finally take a hard look at his anti-war activities instead of concentrating on his four-plus months of combat-zone experience as a decorated, wounded veteran of the Vietnam War - experience that Kerry incessantly promotes as qualifying...

    This video was taped on Veterans Day, 2001 on ABC; in my view, the most liberal broadcast network out there. This news broadcast was aired after ABC premiered Saving Private Ryan. In it you will see that they admit if the Supreme Court would have allowed a recount of Florida votes, Bush would have still won the presidency. The clip here starts with 2 stories prior to the announcement. I left them in to verify that this is not a hoax. It is about 1 minute long. http://www.planetgoofball.com/admission.htm What's the point? The liberal rhetoric heard especially this week is that...

    Day 16: A pivotal battle is won. But how many more now lie ahead? By John Lichfield 05 April 2003 In the conventional war – the set-piece military one – yesterday was pivotal. That war is now, evidently, almost over. Baghdad will soon be surrounded; many hundreds of soldiers in the Republican Guard have surrendered; many others have died; Baghdad airport, a main strategic and psychological objective, has a new owner and a new name. But is the war itself almost over? American and British political and military figures were at great pains to insist that it was not. They...
