It’s a war folks, a REAL war!!
And to quote Lawrence of Arabia, “No prisoners!” Because there will be none. The Christmas Day editorial in the New York Times lays out the battle ground and Al Qaeda isn’t one of the combatants. In fact, in this war Al Qaeda poses no threat. This time it’s face off between the folks who think government knows best and the peasants should pay for it | Read More »
Moving in the right direction on immigration…
Rep Smith and Rep King you’re doing the Lord’s work! Politico has a great article that I think shows that Washington Republicans may be about to get something right. And they’re going to address a serious problem and actually do something that will make the problem less of a problem. In addition, it will establish that criminal behavior is criminal behavior and should be treated | Read More »
Joy to the World…
I saw this article in the Washington Post today and it warmed the cockles of my hard, cold heart (yes Virgina, he has a heart). But before the article, let’s do a quick review of history on the subject of [drum roll please] Guantanamo Bay Detention Center. First, let’s hop in the WayBack Machine and drop in on CBS 60 Minutes from November 16,2008… “Yes! | Read More »
OK Jan Brewer, time to put up…
Since you’re a politician, I won’t bother with the “shut up” part…” I’ve been whining about Jan Brewer, well it seems like forever. My complaints are pretty simple. She was SoS before being elevated to Governor upon Janet Nappy’s move to DC. While she’s is a competent manager/administrator, she’s over her head in a job that requires leadership. Her initial response to budget shortfalls was | Read More »
Good grief! More corruption.
…and [shocked] in Detroit! The people who elect guys like this are simply stupid. Who the hell dresses them in the morning and feeds them? Well, for a partial answer, “we” feed them because most of them are either on welfare or unemployment. From the Detroit Free Press… Kwame Kilpatrick & his Homies. A federal grand jury today indicted former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, his | Read More »
“Birther” principles defined. Starkly.
Yesterday we wrote about the LtCol who was being tried for refusing to deploy because President Obama hadn’t produced his birth certificate. The Col has gotten a whole lot of play in certain flaky circles because of his refusal about seven months ago. From an article in today’s Seattle Times… BALTIMORE — An Army physician who was convicted of refusing to go to Afghanistan because | Read More »
It’s all about AGENDA folks…
In the ‘90s we had the opportunity to defeat the agenda of the Left on the issues and we blew it. By way of some history, the Clintons came into office looking to remake the country in the image of Barack Obama. Or Hillary Clinton. Or somebody other than The Founders. Their first mistake was HillaryCare. The signature initiative of the Left is, and has | Read More »
Are the teacher’s unions wearing out their welcome??
Earlier in the week, we talked about a group of parents in Compton, CA who finally got fed up with the lousy school their kids were forced to go to by the educators and union leaders who are sure they are smarter than parents. They took advantage of a new law that gave these parents the right to swap out their current “public” school for | Read More »
Hey! It’s just a matter of priorities…
So Congress hasn’t been able to find the time to pass a budget for the fiscal year that began a couple of months ago. And then there’s the Obama Tax Increase that needs action. And there must be something going on that requires legislation that will improve the lives of some children someplace or another. Well, there’s just not time to be able to deal | Read More »
Ahhh yes. A man after my own hard, cold heart!
Congressman Joe Barton Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX) is the recipient of the first of what hopefully will be many awards of the 908 Straight St Know Your Enemy Award. I’ve been harping for a long time that elected Democrats are NOT just honorable people who view the world differently than I do. They are the enemy of the American Dream and they are far more | Read More »
Just takin’ care of my friends…
That Barack guy! He understands the meaning of the word “LOYALTY”. He may throw his pastor under the bus and his grandmother and… well, you know. But to his real friends, the ones who deliver large chucks of cash to Obama and Democrats and who are willing to do the hard, dirty and largely unappreciated work of vote fraud and thuggery-on-demand, the First Dude is | Read More »
When less is more. A LOT more…
OK, so CNN’s Rick Sanchez got his panties in a wad. And yesterday he shot his mouth off. From MEDIAite with a HT to HotAir… …on Pete Dominick’s satellite radio show yesterday. The big takeaway – Sanchez calls Stewart “a bigot,” then walks it back a bit, and he implies CNN is run by Jews. Dominick was not just a radio show host – he | Read More »
Joel Demos – CD05 R-Cand. You’ve just gotta see this!
I don’t know much about MN politics in general and that extends to the CD05 race. But here’s what I do know: Keith Ellison – D is the incumbent. Keith Ellison is known as “the Congressman from CAIR”. Ellison, in addition to providing aid and support to enemies of the US, is a far Lefty. Ellison is a profligate spender. For a really in depth | Read More »
Tea Party Train Wreck.
And no, I’m not talking about Christine O’Donnell. I’m talking about the potential for a REAL train wreck. From The Hill yesterday… The Tea Party is expected to announce that former Rep. JD Hayworth (R-Ariz.) will become a national spokesperson for the movement, a source close to the matter told The Hill. JD Hayworth? Tea Party spokesman? Now let me be clear, I don’t happen | Read More »
Hi, my name is Jimmy and I’m a bitter old man…
The Boston Globe has a snippet from Jimmy Carter’s upcoming appearance on 60 Minutes where he’s flacking his latest “book”. Jimmy is in full whine mode… “The fact is that we would have had comprehensive health care now, had it not been for Ted Kennedy’s deliberately blocking the legislation that I proposed,” Carter tells Lesley Stahl, according to a 60 Minutes press release today. “It | Read More »
NRSC Wakes Up & Comes to the Party!
Last night in the wake of Christine O’Donnell’s victory in Delaware over the NRSC favored candidate Mike Castle, we heard from officials at the NRSC that they would not be supporting O’Donnell. Well, as it happens, the person we didn’t hear from last night was John Cornyn and today, from Politico, he came to the party. Let there be no mistake: The National Republican Senatorial | Read More »
You’re damn right I miss him…
I’ve certainly got nothing to add.
Just how bad is it for Democrats????
The Republican Party nominated Jan Brewer for Governor. She’s our sitting Governor thanks to moving up after Janet Nappy went to DC. Let me be clear, I’ll vote for Brewer in November. Let me also be clear, Jan Brewer is likely to be the worst Governor in the US over the next four years, she’s certainly going to be remembered as Arizona’s worst, and we’ve | Read More »
Good Stuff Happening in Arizona!
We have good stuff happening in Arizona in the races for the House of Representatives. Very good stuff. Arizona currently has eight House seats and they are currently split 5D/3R. That’s about to change in 58 days. We have two districts that are pretty effectively Gerrymandered into liberal seats – one held by Ed Pastor and one by Raul Grijalva. Pastor represents CD04 and has | Read More »
Here’s a Presidential Race poll that shocks me.
1. This is a poll done by Public Policy Polling. They have a decidedly lefty tilt. 2. The poll is done in Ohio. Home of Dennis the Menace. Not your typical “red” state. 2008: BO 52, JM 48. We’ll start rolling out our Ohio poll results tomorrow but there’s one finding on the poll that pretty much sums it up: by a 50-42 margin voters | Read More »
