MAObama’s Coördinated Media Blitz for Hell-th Care: Coming Soon!
You know this is coming: leftist pundits and politicians have signaled that between now and the State of the Union Address there will be another media blitz, like the failed one last summer, to convince everyone that the Hell-th Care Bill is a really, really, really good idea for America. Like the one last summer, there will be a coördinated media extravaganza pushing some specific | Read More »
The Premiere of “V” on ABC November 3rd: The First Major Crack in MSM ObamaMania
The popular culture sometimes gives signals about a society’s trends: apocalyptic movies appear during times of stress, like right now with the War On Terror. Tonight the premiere of a new version of a science-fiction series from over 20 years ago on ABC (?!!!?) contains elements of satirical criticism against the cult of MAObama! If there were no market for such a series, you can | Read More »
Leftist History and The Death Of Columbus Day
Several newspaper articles reporting the demise of Columbus Day celebrations throughout the nation had one common theme: the mirthless, mindless, iron-fisted stupidity of political correctness dominating our country. Even here in Columbus, Ohio, there has been no Columbus Day parade for a decade. Why? Christopher Columbus is not allowed to be celebrated: he is responsible for a veritable “holocaust” against the Native Americans, for slavery, | Read More »
On The Brink: Russia’s Byzantine Diplomacy On Iran
The Byzantine Empire, also known as the Eastern Roman empire, existed in a slowly shrinking form between the 400′s A.D. down to the fall of Constantinople to the Turks in 1453. For roughly 1,000 years this basically medieval Greek empire attempted to survive the attacks of Slavs, Arabs, Crusaders, and Turks, and did so by developing a diplomatic technique known today as “Byzantine.” A Byzantine diplomacy means that | Read More »
Murder In Chicago vs. Henry Gates: The Silence and The Fury from the White House
You might recall the NObama moment when he decided to interfere in the arrest of Henry Gates, his professor friend who was arrested for bad-mouthing a policeman, when a neighbor thought that somebody was breaking into Gates’ house. It turned out that Gates himself had broken into his house because he had lost his keys. Gates over-reacted when the police arrived, and went into racial | Read More »
Proof of NObama’s Arrogance: The Hegira To Minnesota.
If the present resident of the White House really were a centrist, and not a leftist radical, if he were really interested in bringing people together, if he were really interested in working with “the other side” (whether you define them as Conservatives or Republicans), one thing is clear: on September 12th he would not have escaped to Minnesota to be massaged by a prefabricated | Read More »
The Disaster of Spanish Socialism: NObama’s Future For America
Spain turned to complete socialism in the middle of the decade, you might recall, after being hit with train bombs by Islamo-Fascists right before the election of 2004. The socialists claimed that Spain was at risk because of its support for the War On Terror, and that if Spain withdrew and started “dealing peacefully” with the radicals, both Islamic and Basque separatists, and understood their complaints, | Read More »
Why 8th Graders Could Run the GOP More Effectively
Recently several of my more talented 8th Graders were doing reports for “Current Events” in Social Studies. (I teach them Latin.) They wanted to know why the Republicans were not actively – key word, actively – promoting their message, especially on Health Care. They knew some rudimentary things about the Dem plan, and were skeptical, perhaps repeating some of the skepticism from their parents. But | Read More »
Hillary Clinton for President: 2012 and The Gravity Of Discontent.
I have been wondering for a few weeks about Hillary Clinton and what she – and Billy Jeff – might be thinking when they see NObama’s numbers attracted by the increasing gravity of discontent. An article about her campaign fund still having several million dollars in it also hit my suspicious antennae! (The article naively wondered what was going on: what could be the purpose?) | Read More »
Beck, Rush, and The War on Freedom of the Press/Speech: Real or Hyperbole?
RedStaters know that Communist theory, along with any totalitarian theory of control, involves early control of the mass media, with the idea being that control of the “masses” is thereby facilitated, if you control what they see and hear. We already know about the bias of the MSM toward leftist politics. What some of us might not know is the back-door to stifling dissent, to | Read More »
