Bachmann’s Right Idea
On July 22, 2010, hearings began on Charlie Rangel’s ethics(D-NY) woesRangel was charged with ethics violations. Throughout the following week, Rangel worked to make a deal that culminated in formal charges on July 29 as first he had reached a deal and then hadn’t. On the heels of the Rangel scandal, comes Maxine Waters (D-CA) who is brought up on ethics charges. The action against | Read More »
A Tale of Two “Hit and Runs”
There have been a lot of assumptions made about the Road Rage incident in Nashville TN, beginning with the headline of the linked article: Road rage, accident centers on Obama bumper sticker The headline comes largely from an assumption the victim made; that it had something to do with his Obama/Biden sticker rather than a simple case (although terrifying) of road rage due to the | Read More »
The Curtain Hangs in Tatters.
In the past few months, we here on RedState and other diverse locations on the internet have made references to pulling back the curtain as a reference to the magician in the mythical land of Oz. The curtain hangs in tatters, not just pulled back and those working behind it would like nothing more than to have us turn our backs so they can mend | Read More »
Netanyahu Picked Up the Mantle Obama Tossed Aside.
The United States has for decades been known as the leader of the free world. Not anymore. Obama with his speech brought rousing applause from those present at the United Nations to hear it. I’m unsure whether the applause was for promises of appeasement or his New World Order. Responsibility and leadership in the 21st century demand more. In an era when our destiny is | Read More »
And What Did Obama Do?
He laughed. There is no point in being outraged, really there isn’t. “Rush Limbaugh, ‘I hope the country fails’ — I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? … He needs a good waterboarding, that’s what he needs.” Obama joined the crowd in laughing at the crack about Limbaugh’s “kidneys.” Apparently, it’s funny to wish death on someone. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not the | Read More »
The Forest For The Trees
Today is tax day. We here at RedState know what that means. It is no ordinary tax day of rushing to mail off returns before the magic hour or the usual grumbling about how much your tax bill ended up being, “why couldn’t I have that deduction, too?”, ,or “I don’t want to fund research on snails.” Today, we embark on a journey. The tea | Read More »
Demogoguery: A reminder of where it can lead.
The quote is from Martin Niemoeller (1892-1984), a Pastor in the Confessing Church, not by Bohoeffer who was executed by the Nazis shortly before the end of World War II. The quote appears in the Congressional Record 14 October 1968, page 31636: When Hitler attacked the Jews I was not a Jew, therefore I was not concerned. And when Hitler attacked the Catholics, I | Read More »
Reading The Fine Print
Or should I say the final print since the zingers usually come at the end of articles from the liberal biased media sources. It has been noted in the media that President Obama intends a review of Bush’s signing statement to determine their Constitutionality. However, that’s only part of the story. This IHT article is particularly enlightening. For the first and middle paragraphs it’s not | Read More »
Can we get off this bus?
Like, now? When Obama won the presidential election, there were many lofty concession speeches, well wishing, and more. I said no, then, and I say no louder now. I’ve watched the news and read blogs asking Obama to please shut up because every time he speaks the stock market tanks and a sort of side-stepping of the probability that is exactly what he wants. He | Read More »
A Question For Obama Supporters
Originally posted at Hang Right Politics Here are some questions I have about Obama, his ideology, and how those shape his policies: -Obama has called for a national police at least as strong as the military. Why? -Obama’s supporters have personally trashed anyone who criticizes the candidate, including the media. They use every means within their power to destroy individual lives. Why? -Nobody can dispute | Read More »
McCain’s Reply to Obama on a Third Bush Term
Obama likes to claim that electing McCain would be tantamount to a third Bush 2 term. If that logic were sound, why didn’t we get a third Reagan term when Bush 1 was elected? Shouldn’t McCain point that out? He has claimed to be a foot soldier in the Reagan revolution so why doesn’t he? Snappy comeback and puts TheOne in the position of having | Read More »
