The U.S. House Republicans’ “Speak-In”

    It was as unexpected as it was unprecedented in U.S. House history. After already barely passing a resolution to give themselves a five week paid vacation, the Democrat Congress sneakily adjourned for the day in a craven attempt to escape Washington without a real vote to address America’s high gas prices and energy security. It also, they laughed, would silence Republican members from discussing America’s | Read More »

    Obama Crime Family: Inside and Out

    At the top is the family’s top boss Barack “Barry” Obama. His second in command, David “Wonderboy” Axelrod serves as his main adviser and the outfit’s under boss of Chicago.

    Deadheads for Obama

    Barack Obama “Contains Within Him The Contradictions”

    It’s fitting that we begin with a reminder of what Barack Obama said about Rev. Wright back on March 18, 2008 during his big speech on race titled “A More Perfect Union.” In defending him and making excuses for his behavior, Obama said that Rev. Wright “contains within him the contradictions – the good and the bad – of the community that he has served | Read More »

Host Chris Wallace offered to play some clips of Obama doing just that in Berlin, and Daschle changed the | Read More »

    George W. Bush: Getting a Bum Rap

    President Bush’s popularity in the minds of the American people ranks right up there with a root canal. Because of that, John McCain has been labeled “Bush’s third term” by those who have successfully painted Bush as “the worst president ever.” Both of those are bum raps. President Bush’s problem is not that he has been the “bad president” the Liberal media and Democrats have | Read More »

    Republicans Debate Through Pelosi Blackout

    Kudos to minority leader Beohner, the house members and bystanders in the gallery who refused to yield when Pelosi’s Democrats voted to adjourn Friday 8/1 and close the House at 11:23am before debate on drilling could begin. Meaningful debate on domestic drilling has been blocked by the Democrats for a month now, while media pundits continue to portray Republicans as the true obstructionists.

    Who played the race card? Rasmussen finds that Obama did

    Rasmussen actually asked people: As for Obama’s comment, 53% of white voters saw it as racist, as did 44% of African-Americans and 61% of all other voters. So who was racist? Unaffiliated voters, by a five-to-one margin, said the McCain ad was not racist. By a much narrower 50% to 38% margin, unaffiliateds viewed Obama’s comment as racist. Perhaps the press and the lunatic lefty | Read More »

I am a very staunch conservative and have been very frustrated about the republican party and it’s lack of conservatism. Also putting | Read More »

    “Black in America”: The war against fascism in 2008
