The Creepy Donors Behind OFA
Organizing for Action (OFA) is the successor to Organizing for America, Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. This is proof that despite winning in 2012, Mr. Obama continues to be the Campaigner-in-Chief if nothing else. While Harry Reid- Nevada’s solution for insomnia- suffers from KBPDS (Koch Brother Paranoid Derangement Syndrome), OFA is organized as a 501(c)4 organization that most likely received no scrutiny from Lois Lerner and | Read More »
My Counter Proposal: A 2-State Solution for California
So this 6-state breakup solution for California may end up being on the November ballot out here in Granola-land. Not that anything can really come of it, but still… really? [image from Wikipedia] As a resident of Ventura County (just north of L.A. County) I say, “‘Hell No!’ to being a part of the State of L.A. (aka, West California).” I decided to run some numbers. In looking at the 2012 presidential | Read More »
Extreme Pro-Abortion Senate Bill Would Eviscerate Over 200 Pro-Life Laws in America
Over the past few years, numerous states have followed the will of the people to increase protections for women and unborn children by enacting reasonable, commonsense restrictions on abortion.
Pro-abortion radicals on the other hand have been trying to challenge these laws in the courts and the court of public opinion to no avail. Now they are attempting to eviscerate these pro-life laws with one piece of federal pro-abortion legislation, S.B. 1696.

Next presidential candidate
Time is running out to be able to pick freely and widely among all the unpolished stones to choose from. A strong candidate is needed who not only is exceptional, but also can win over a broader coalition and forge own paths when needed. Hesitation here will not end very well. Here are some of the things I will be looking for. *Age of 45-65: | Read More »
NH Democrat Governor Hassan Has Not Signed Speech Killing Bill. Why?
Members of the New Hampshire State “Republican Majority Senate,” sponsored and passed NH SB120, a bill that modified finance rules for money related to political speech. Money used to engage in political speech must be regulated, we are told by incumbent Republicans, but this is not a violation of our first amendment rights because money isn’t speech. We’ve taken to calling it the Incumbent protection | Read More »
Illegals not fleeing violence, government report concludes
Breibart Texas broke the story yesterday: American intelligence suggests that illegal immigration is fueled by the belief among those headed our way, that they would receive permisos and be able to stay in the US. A leaked document from the elite El Paso Intelligence Center, staffed by DEA and 21 other federal, state, and local agencies, contains analysis about the motivations of the current wave of illegals.

The Watercooler ~ Israel’s Iron Dome Protects Her from Hamas Rockets
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) says that Hamas militants have launched at least 1,000 rockets at Israeli cities in the last six days. In a bid to halt such attacks, Israel launched “Operation Protective Edge,” and thanks largely to Israel’s Iron Dome, no Israeli fatalities have been reported. Today’s Watercooler is a brief lesson on how the Iron Dome works and why it is so | Read More »
Barack Obama doesn’t see America the way you do
Barack Obama, hailing from Kenya – if only for college application purposes – and growing up in Indonesia, has always had something of an outsider’s perspective of the United States. Even when he lived in the United States, he lived in Hawaii, an island that up until two years before he was born was not even a state. Of course the United States is a | Read More »
Environmental Propagandists Full Of It Over Dog Poo Run Off
Each year, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources publishes an educational brochure directed towards children titled “The Maryland Bay Game”. Often, the pamphlet contains interesting information regarding the state’s geography and natural resources. Some of the content, however, is outright environmental propaganda. For example, there is one activity consisting of a maze titled “Scoop The Poop”. The text admonishes that, by scooping the poop of | Read More »
Greg Sargent and the Very Special Pig
Greg Sargent is one of a legion of lefties… …decrying the amazingly awful, late-trending, headlong rush into national oblivion brought on by Republicans mysteriously refusing to be nice and compromise with compassionate, pure-hearted progressives. He just can’t understand the stubbornness, and who can blame him? @KatMcKinley In all seriousness, this is a very clear cut case where one side wants a compromise solution and the other | Read More »
When Illegals Don’t Think They’re Here Illegally, Chaos Ensues
PREFACE: This in not about the young children crossing the border. This is about adults and their thinking, not children. A very vocal and visible illegal immigrant, Jose Antonio Vargas, wrote about his visit to the border town of McAllen, Texas in Politico Magazine and the vigil he lead for the unaccompanied alien children: ….a crowd of about 30 people—mostly undocumented youth, a few citizen allies—started chanting something in | Read More »

If anything but a strong and cohesive candidate is built&developed in good time, at least by early 2016, I think the democrat apparatus will definitely capitalize upon thais in a major way.

Unsurprisingly Corporations are Gaming Obamacare
Star War fans will always remember when Obi-Wan Kenobi described the spaceport Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine as a “wretched hive of scum and villainy.” It’s easy to recall that description when you learn about a conference occurring in Washington, DC this week known as the 340B Coalition. “Scum and villainy” might be too strong a term to describe the conferees but “cronies and | Read More »
EPA’s new superpower: Wage garnishment without due process
The same EPA that brought you Climate Change Gone Wild, Felonious Follies, and the classic Poops In The Hall, now offers a convenient automatic payment option: wage garnishment without a court order. That’s right, they can accuse you, cite you, fine you, and collect, all without the muss and fuss of Due Process Under Law.

The Borgia Presidency
There was once a Cardinal of the Catholic Church named Rodrigo Borgia. His uncle was Pope Callixtus III, who bequeathed unto him the position of Cardinal.

Then, in 1492, he became Pope Alexander VI, defeating Giuliano della | Read More »
Obama’s Immigration Boomerang Gives the GOP an Opportunity
The growing crisis of thousands of unaccompanied minors flooding into the U.S from Mexican has revealed President Obama’s an immigration policy boomerang.

The Supreme Court Term in Review and Reaction From the Left
Without a doubt, this past term of the Supreme Court will be forever known as the “Hobby Lobby Term.” The reaction against this decision has been vehement, vitriolic and most of all, false.

From Harry Reid’s declaration that “five white men” are deciding contraceptive choices (Clarence Thomas is black) to Nancy Pelosi’s scare-mongering, one | Read More »
Matt Lewis is destroying the Republican Party

Charlie vs. Charlie: Abortion!
In 1992, while running for state senator of Florida, Charlie said he was pro-choice, but was against state funded abortions. Charlie won his seat in 1992, and then went on in 1995 to serve on the senate health care committee, where he voted against a bill that would have required a 24 hour waiting period for a woman to get an abortion. He stated then: “I generally don’t like the government telling people what to do, that’s why I’m a Republican.” However, just a year later, on that same committee, he voted to approve a waiting period bill, after he proposed an amendment to restrict the bill to women under the age of 18.

Israel’s enemies have misjudged America
Israel is rapidly descending into a hot war. Over the past few years, Hamas has accumulated an arsenal of 10,000 rockets, some of which are advanced designs which can hit Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
The Jerusalem Post is reporting that Ben-Gurion Airport, Israel’s only international airport, has been targeted, and flights may be suspended. This is not a minor disturbance. It could be the opening act of Hamas and Hizbollah’s long-awaited match against the IDF and Israel as a nation.

Dinesh D’Souza’s Alternative Narrative
This week’s essay is a departure from the norm. On Wednesday I attended a screening of Dinesh D’Souza’s “America: Imagine A World Without Her“ followed by a Q & A with the author/producer in San Francisco.

First, some brief background: - Since college days at Dartmouth D’Souza has been a friend of Harmeet Dhillon, the SF GOP | Read More »

Will Hispanic Voters Prevent Republicans From Winning the White House?
