Backlash – an American Fable
Chapter One On a cool October evening on the West side of Chicago, the middle-aged man in the navy blue jacket and jeans walked briskly down the sidewalk. A black baseball cap was pulled low over his forehead, hiding his ice-blue eyes, which were constantly and methodically scanning his surroundings. They missed nothing. Having parked his car discreetly on a quiet side street, he was | Read More »
Positive Voter I.D. NOW!
In all likelihood, Minnesota can thank convicted felons for the embarrassing fact that their newest United States Senator is an unutterably moronic, washed-up comedian – Al Franken. Why? Because an investigation into the election has so far uncovered 342 convicted felons who voted in the 2008 election, and that’s just the ones we’ve discovered so far. But wait, it doesn’t stop there. Here in Minnesota, | Read More »
California – Insanity or Ignorance?
Californians have long been viewed (by normal folks, at least) as the most insane group of people in the nation. And their reputation is well-deserved – after decades of liberal Democrat rule, much of the most onerous government regulations and policies that now affect all Americans originated in the “Sunshine State.” Today, with real unemployment of 22%, an illegal immigration problem that has reached epidemic | Read More »
Juan Williams – Lynched for Thought Crimes
The firing of liberal pundit Juan Williams by oh-so-liberal National Public Radio has provided a perfect example of the dangerous nature of the insidious concept known as “hate crimes.” For those not familiar with the issue which lead to Williams being tossed out on the street, you can see the report at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3Iqgxt7bg4 For simply admitting that he feels a level of concern and uneasiness | Read More »
Warning to Republicans
Too many Republican politicians are already gleefully rubbing their hands in anticipation of retaking control of the House of Representatives. They should be careful – the voters’ disenchantment with Obama and the Democrats does not automatically translate into trust of the GOP. On the contrary, if Republicans do indeed take over the House, and gain a few seats in the Senate, they will be subjected | Read More »
Democrat Media Blitz Shifts into High Gear
It happens with monotonous regularity – the closer we get to an election, the more the link between the Democrat-friendly news and entertainment programming groups becomes clearly visible. For at least the last couple of decades, the meshing of entertainment and news has been a conscious (and often diabolically successful) propaganda effort – Heir Goebbels would swoon with envy. And with Democrats looking at a | Read More »
Still Undecided? You’ve GOT to be Kidding!
It happens every election cycle. As we wind down to voting day, we hear daily, if not hourly, the press reports on the various races around the country. And as always, we learn that mere weeks (or even days) before the election, a small but important segment of the voting populace remains “undecided.” “Undecided” they say? Who ARE these people? After months of campaigning, TV | Read More »
Dave Kopel on 2010 Elections – Potential Pitfalls Abound
A must read for any gun owner. Gun Rights and the 2010 Elections By: David Kopel Will the 2011 Senate be friendlier to the Second Amendment than the current Senate? While the 2010 election will result in gains for Republicans, both parties contain pro-rights and anti-rights candidates. In 2006 and 2008, this meant that the anti-Republican deluge did little harm to the net numbers of Second | Read More »
Obamanomics – Playing with Numbers
Releasing the “great news” that the “recession is over” just weeks before the 2010 mid-term elections does not come as a surprise to veteran political observers – we knew Obama and the Democrats were bound to try something, ANYTHING, to hold back the anti-incumbent tide that is sweeping the country. But wait, we have unemployment at 10% (with the real number closer to 17%), the | Read More »
No one who has closely followed the American media will be surprised by the ever-increasing use of the word “extreme” in what are ostensibly “news” stories. But don’t look for that label to ever be attached to Democrats, or to any left-leaning group for that matter. You see, in the world of today’s ever more left-wing mainstream media, the term “extreme” is almost exclusively applied | Read More »
