SBA Expected To Release Fraudulent and Falsified Small Business Data Soon
Every year about this time the Small Business Administration (SBA) issues a press release claiming the federal government barely missed the 23% small business contracting goal required by law. In reality, the Obama Administration has never come anywhere close to reaching the minimum 23% small business-contracting goal. Based on all the information I have been able to obtain under the Freedom of Information Act, I | Read More »
Obama is the worst President since World War II
That legacy thing isn’t working out so good for President Obama. A new Quinnipiac poll finds that voters now say Obama is the worst president since World War II. Obama is less popular than President George W. Bush. Voters, by a 45 to 38 percent margin, say the country would be better off if Mitt Romney had won the 2012 presidential election. Ronald Reagan is considered the | Read More »
There is no moral equivalence between Israel and Palestinian groups
Moral equivalence between Israel and the Palestinian leaders turns a blind eye to many things, but the main things are innocence and intent.
There is no moral equivalence here. Israelis don’t use children as a shield for rocket launch sites. They don’t send young men and women to blow themselves us in Palestinian cities, markets and buses. The various Palestinian groups and Hamas do. They do it regularly.Read More »
Ted Cruz Blasts Hamas. Obama Urges “Restraint”.

Ted Cruz has been particularly vocal in his support of the teens’ mothers and Israel’s efforts to find them since the kidnapping happened, even taking to the Senate floor to blast Hamas for | Read More »
I guess the Left is comfortable with our quiet troop buildup in Iraq.

Uniguest Needs a Better Explanation for Why Conservative Sites Are Being Blocked
James Varney of the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, stayed at the Hyatt Place hotel in Riverhead, NY. He tried to look at the Drudge Report, but was blocked from doing so by his hotel’s internet connection. In fact, he tried looking at a number of conservative websites, including Powerline and Instapundit. They too were blocked. He then tried a number of liberal websites from Talking | Read More »
The GOP plays heads-I-win-tails-you-lose with conservatives
The American, the magazine of the American Enterprise Institute, has an article this month that I classify as a must-read for conservatives searching for a way ahead. The article is titled Why the voters got rid of Cantor. Most people do not decide which candidate to vote for based on who shares their opinion on the specific issues. They know that issues are complicated, and | Read More »
Jim DeMint Will Be At The RedState Gathering
We would not be doing a lot of what we are doing had Jim DeMint of South Carolina not stood up and led the grassroots in its fight for smaller government. Senator DeMint was willing to tell his own party no long before many in Washington were. Not only was he willing to tell his party no, he was willing to fight to get like | Read More »
#MSSen FEC Now Looking Into Pro Cochran SuperPAC
From Roll Call, the defecation has begun to hit the rotary wind device: The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has sent a Request For Additional Information (RFAI) to Mississippi Conservatives, a Super PAC supporting the re-election of Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss. The committee has until August 1st to respond, or the failure to do so “could result in an audit or enforcement action.” Not only do we have allegations of vote buying | Read More »

Open primaries with open runoffs are a bad idea
By now it’s pretty obvious that Thad Cochran actually lost the Republican primary runoff to Chris McDaniel, probably by at least 8 points. But because Mississippi employs some anachronistic primary voting laws, known as open primaries with open runoffs, the Barbour machine, the NSRC, and Cochran’s thumb-sucking campaign staff was allowed to enlist anyone who hadn’t voted in the Democratic Party primary to vote in the Republican runoff. This was perfectly legal to do, although I doubt that it was done perfectly legally. It certainly was not done with honor.Read More »
Obama Responds to Hamas Terrorists’ Murder of US Teen with “Strongest Possible” Meaningless Words

Obama assails GOP on immigration and says he’ll go it alone
John Boehner seems to have abandoned the plan that we heard so much about earlier in the year, i.e. waiting until after the primary season to push the noxious Senate comprehensive immigration reform law, and decided that the GOP base is simply not in the mood to move such a monumental bill under a president who is so disdainful of the law of the land. | Read More »

Hysteria, Thy name is Woman
“For at least two thousand years of European history until the late nineteenth century hysteria referred to a medical condition thought to be particular to women and caused by disturbances of the uterus” – wiki As the screeching over the SCOTUS ruling on the Hobby Lobby case reached a fever pitch, I thought to myself how women on the left were going into hysterics even though nothing | Read More »
