Obama’s Crooks and Cronies a/k/a His Economic Policy Team
Today Barack Obama met with his economic policy advisers. Let’s review who they are. First, there is St. Robert Rubin. The media prefers us to remember Rubin as the savior of the economy; such a good Secretary of the Treasury, Bush wanted a Democrat and found Hank Paulson. They don’t like to talk about this. Yeah, that’s right, Robert Rubin has his hands in Citigroup, | Read More »
Free Speech Protection Act of 2008
On occasion we do get to write about bi-partisan legislation at RedState. This is one of those times. Meet Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld. There is a bill working its way through Congress right now called the “Freedom of Speech Protection Act” (H.R. 5814 in the House and S. 2977 in the Senate) that would not be moving forward, but for what happened to Dr. Ehrenfeld. The | Read More »
Obama Surrogate Debbie Wasserman Schultz Says “Surge Was Not Effective.”
This is a stunning interview with Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Just get a load of this part: CBSNews.com: But isn’t it somewhat ironic that it may be the surge that he opposed, that John McCain supported, that allows Senator Obama, if he becomes president, to begin withdrawing troops from a much more stable situation? Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Look, **the whole stated purpose of the | Read More »
French Porn Apparently Does Have Standards
One suspects had they done this on the American memorial instead of the Canadian one, they could have gotten off with just a slap on the wrist.
Submit a video. Be shown in all your glory at the GOP Convention.*
Here’s the deal. The GOP went through the effort of putting up a website where you can submit videos to be shown in Minneapolis making suggestions for the GOP platform. Yes, they will show your video to the GOP if you make it through the screening process (keeping your clothes on helps). So go here and submit your video. Don’t let the Paultards and the | Read More »
Barack Obama Blew Off Troops According to Email Now Retracted by Captain Jeff Porter
Yesterday, I pointed out that it does not matter if Barack Obama actually did blow off the troops, as an email from Captain Jeffrey S. Porter reported to friends and family back home. The email got onto the internet and spread like wildfire. The point is not that the email is true. The point is that a lot of people who do not really even | Read More »
This is probably not true, but . . .
The following is circulating rapidly around the internets. In fact, it is circulating faster than the “Barack Hussein Obama is a closet jihadist” chain emails of yore. Hello everyone, As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to “The War Zone”. I wanted | Read More »
The Carbon Credit Scam and the Democratic Convention
You’ve got to read this. The eastern Colorado wind turbine tapped for the Democratic National Convention’s carbon-offset program has one problem: It doesn’t generate any electricity. Convention organizers are now being questioned for their eagerness to market those credits to delegates. The DNC has contracted with Vermont-based NativeEnergy to offer delegates “Green challenge” carbon offsets to soften the environmental impact of convention travel. That money | Read More »
Is Don Young’s Campaign Nearly Bankrupt?
I posted earlier that Don Young’s campaign made a huge mistake in airing an ad crediting Young with winning a taxpayer’s award he did not win. In fact, Taxpayers for Common Sense had given Young it’s Golden Fleece Award for ripping off taxpayers, not a “Hero the Taxpayers” award. Here is where Young gets into trouble. He is struggle for money right now. Sean Parnell, | Read More »
Another Sign Don Young Has Been In Washington Too Long
Perhaps the only American politician with an ego bigger than Barack Obama’s, Representative Don Young is running an ad in Alaska that is simply not true. In the advertisement, Young claims he received the “hero of the taxpayer award by Taxpayers for Common Sense.” There’s just one problem. Taxpayers for Common Sense did not award Don Young the award. Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform | Read More »
John Edwards has a child with his mistress*
On February 21, 2008, the New York Times ran a 3,000 word article with no sources on the record and a lot of innuendo about John McCain having an affair with a lobbyist. The first paragraph was one sentence. Here is the second paragraph: A female lobbyist had been turning up with him at fund-raisers, visiting his offices and accompanying him on a client’s corporate | Read More »
The Gospel of Obamessiah According to Gerard Baker
Go here. And it came to pass, in the eighth year of the reign of the evil Bush the Younger (The Ignorant), when the whole land from the Arabian desert to the shores of the Great Lakes had been laid barren, that a Child appeared in the wilderness. The Child was blessed in looks and intellect. Scion of a simple family, offspring of a miraculous | Read More »
Sonny Perdue Did Not Endorse Nancy Schaefer
Nancy Schaefer in Georgia Senate District 50 sent out a mail piece claiming Governor Sonny Perdue endorsed her. Sonny told Martha Zoller this morning he did not endorse Senator Schaefer. From a Jim Butterworth press release: Concerning Schaefer’s mailer, the Governor Perdue said, “It was unfortunate. I have not had any conversation with either of the three candidates regarding any kind of endorsements. Some people | Read More »
RedState Graphic Design Contest 3: Obama Ditches Wounded Troops For Shopping in Berlin
Here are the rules. Here’s your prize for this one: a coffee mug from the RedState Store. There is no starting picture here. Here is the topic: Barack Obama went to Germany and said to the German people he was not speaking as a candidate for office, but as a citizen of the world. He then cancelled a trip to visit wounded soldiers at Landstuhl | Read More »
Is it 57 states or 51 states?
The leaders of the reality based community just can’t seem to get a grip on reality. Obama thinks there are 57 states and now House Majority leader Steny Hoyer thinks there are 51 states. From Hoyer’s Office comes this: House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) issued the following statement today after 51 state governors released a letter calling for the extension of renewable energy | Read More »
Put down the keyboard. Pick up the phone.
I’ve had a lot of requests to post my speech from the Americans for Prosperity conference in Austin, TX. The speech ran as my RedState Under The Radar column at Human Events yesterday. You can view it here. The text is also below. There are people in this world who are morally and ideologically opposed to us. We call them the left. They are a | Read More »
Bob Schaffer Gets Conservative Endorsement
Jim DeMint’s Senate Conservative Fund is endorsing Bob Schaffer in Colorado. That’s great news. Schaffer is a good conservative. During his three terms in Congress from 1997-2002, Schaffer earned a 99 percent Lifetime Rating with the American Conservative Union. His average National Taxpayers’ Union ranking was 13th in the entire House, and he received the fourth highest score on two separate occasions. The Democrats thought | Read More »
Mary Jo Kilroy is a Parade Killjoy. Sends Impersonator to Parade
Caught on tape by the Republican Party, this may be the funniest thing yet. Mary Jo Kilroy attended the Plain City Steam Thrashers Parade, except she didn’t. She had someone in the back of a convertible waving as if it was her, but it was not her. It was someone else. How pathetic. See for yourself:
Bar Complaint Filed Against Obama For His Lack of Honesty
Though Obama has not released his bar application (transparency is just a bumper sticker for him), someone has filed a bar complaint. The complaint charges Barack Obama with failing to disclose his drug use. As I’ve written about in the past, bar applications are lengthy things to fill out and they go into a host of details from drug use to parking tickets. Given how | Read More »
