Sarah Palin Wakes a Sleeping Giant

    I am from a small town. Small town values make up who I am… they led me to God. They carried me through college, through graduate school, throug the first seven years of my marriage, through the birth of my two sons. I don’t live in a small town anymore, but as the old saying goes, you can take the boy out of the small | Read More »

    Barack, Michelle, and Bill Ayers, and Bernadine Dohrn—A Matter of Character

    Barack Obama lied on April 16, 2008 about his 20 year relationship with terrorist William Ayers. He continued this lie again the next day on his campaign Web site’s Fact Check, again on April 27 on Fox News, again through John Kerry on TruthFightsBack, and again on his campaign Website’s Fight the Smears at the end of August. While Obama would have us believe that | Read More »

    Wave the 49-Star Flags Tonight for Palin

    Because Alaska was admitted before July 4, 1959, and Hawaii was admitted after July 4, 1959, the 49-star flag existed from 7/4/1959 to 7/3/1960. By waving it tonight, conservatives can show solidarity with Sarah Palin of Alaska while simultaneously rallying against Barack Obama of Hawaii. This is not, in any way, meant to be anti-Hawaiian, but apparently, Obama would be ok with it if it | Read More »

    Where Has Happen To My Country

    I am so fed up with the media in this Country, They don’t even bother to find out if a topic is true any longer. They just want to sensationalize everything.

    In Which I Appreciate Giuliani

    I know we’re all wrapped up in the incredible story of Gov. Sarah Palin, and the incredible meta-story of the self-destruction of the legacy media. But I wanted to take a moment to note just how effective Rudy Giuliani has been as a surrogate for the McCain/Palin ticket. He is absolutely our most effective attack dog.Every campaign needs one, and I now believe that Rudy | Read More »

    Former Cheerleader Campbell Brown Joins the Obama Campaign

    Sometimes tiny slips of the tongue can be quite revealing.Today the Washington Post’s Howie Kurtz is making the McCain campaign out to be the bad guy for pushing back hard on some of the most scurrilous press coverage supposedly legitimate media have ever served up on a public figure: Alaska Governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.Naturally, Kurtz delves into the contretemps over John McCain | Read More »

    This Times author has a bit of cognitive dissonance…

    …in the way that she simultaneously is heavily for, and heavily against, Governor Palin’s candidacy. Comes down in the end against, but at least she recognized that Palin represents something that is lacking.That’s the British Times, of course. The one from New York has a strictly-regulated rationing system about praising women that don’t fit their rather stark and unimaginative ideological standards.

    The War in Afghanistan

    The War in AfghanistanHow does Obama infer that John McCain some how had Osama bin Laden in his sights and let him get away and there has not been a response to that. Clinton is the only President that had bin Laden in his sights and let him go. Clinton is the one who sent a paltry number of cruise missiles after bin Laden after | Read More »

    A young Republican

    During my childhood I grew up in a house full of republicans. My dad, mom, grandparents were all republicans.

    All Shook Up

    Democrats sure are angry this election year. We seen glimpses of it during the primary where they basically assassinated Hillary and Bill Clinton’s character and drew rifle fire upon them. There’s this sense of power driven anger that I’m seeing from not only the party itself but from the leftist blogs. In part well, they have their Jesus Christ.

    What Gov. Palin Needs To Say Tonight

    Tonight’s speech at the Republican National Convention by vice presidential nominee Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is probably the most important convention speech in memory by a vice presidential candidate. Gov. Palin made a smashingly good impression with her initial appearance on Friday, but her relative inexperience combined with a ferocious left-wing/media assault on her and her family has left a lot of the public up | Read More »

    The AP and Gannett further in the tank for Obama

    The (Gannett) Tennessean headlined on the top of page 2A an AP story by Matt Apuzzo “Campaign cash hurts Palin’s image”. The subhead was: “More potentially embarrassing details emerge”. No shame here. They are all in the tank.Since they buy the feed and the stories, they get to edit to their liking. The Gannett version left out the last five sentences, in effect, editing out | Read More »

    The Great Reconciler: Sarah Palin Brings Rush Limbaugh and John McCain Closer

    Why Sarah Palin is the Most Remarkable Media Phenomenon in Recent Memory

The fact of the matter is there are 19 cities in the country with more people than Alaska.2) *When referencing Obama there are | Read More »

    What is the Alaska Independence Party?

    Since the nomination of Sarah Palin, the MSM has been reporting that in the 1990s she was a member of the Alaska Independence Party, which is routinely described as a “secessionist” group.

    Why is Arianna Huffington such a hate monger, socialists, leftist, extremists?

But even DeMint only recently kicked the habit.It was less than two years ago that the South Carolina Republican swore off earmarks after the GOP’s drubbing in November 2006. DeMint now calls himself a “recovering earmarker” who equates pork-barrel spending to a disease.My point is | Read More »

    More Milwaukee Voter Fraud… Guess What Party?

    Milwaukee has discovered some more voter fraud with 10 more voter registration workers are being investigated by Wisconsin authorities. Fittingly, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel covered the story in its paper on August 29.
