The Obama Administration, The IRS and The Praetorian Guards.
The funny thing is that my participation in Conservative circles has allowed me to know a statistically large number of people who recently have been audited. The ones who haven’t often know someone who has. I mean, unlike the Kenyawn Birf Surtifikate, or Tom Fife’s “business trip” in Moscow, I’m hearing from people who are solid, real-life Conservatives who have actually gotten that metaphorical midnight knock on the door. I’m not a guy who believes the Gubbermint LIHOPed 9/11. Yet, it’s amazing how this one, peculiar segment of the population would have so much time and energy invested in them by the IRS. Maybe we should all feel honored. Not everyone receives so much care and attention from the Post-modern Amerikan State.

Ed Markey’s increasingly useful stupid rhetoric on Citizen United and the Dred Scott decision.
Yeah, I think that Massachusetts Senate hopeful Ed Markey’s (D, MA-05) going to have more problems in his primary than he thought that he was going to have in his primary. Representative Edward J. Markey refused to back down Thursday from comments he made this week that seemed to compare the US Supreme Court’s ruling on campaign finance law to the high court’s 19th-century Dred | Read More »
Trailer for Citizens United’s “The Hope and the Change.”
I’m pointing out this Citizens United trailer for their new movie The Hope and the Change – which will feature a variety of Obama voters from 2008, and presumably why they’ve decided to atone for that particular error in such a public fashion – for three reasons.

Lee Stranahan: “The media has woefully misrepresented the occupy movement.”

The Rise of the Democratic Super-Secret PACs.
Super PACs are, of course, the political groups that were set up after the Supreme Court’s landmark free speech decision in Citizens United: they are able to raise and spend unlimited amounts of money advocating both for and against political candidates, but may not donate to those candidates directly. The Left ostensibly hates them, which did not stop them from using them to raise over | Read More »
The #1 Threat to Our National Security is Not What You Think
Promoted from the diaries. – ed. Our crushing $14 trillion national debt is as much a national security threat as it is an economic disaster. According to Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen, “The most significant threat to our national security is our debt.” Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has said, “We can’t have a strong military if we have a weak economy.” Even | Read More »

Video: Obama Budget Ignores 800 Pound Gorilla
From Citizens United, the latest 800 Pound Gorilla video: President Obama’s fiscal year 2012 budget ignores the 800 pound gorilla in the room – our $14,000,000,000,000.00 national debt. Consider this an Open Thread.
State of the Union: Who’s Sitting with the 800 lb. Gorilla?
Tonight the President delivers his State of the Union Address to the nation. This annual event brings representatives from all three branches of government into the Capitol at the same time. But there is another figure looming that has been ignored for far too long. The national debt – currently at $14 trillion and counting – is the 800 pound gorilla in the room. There | Read More »
Obama and Democrats lie about Citizens United and campaign money
Barack Obama and the Democrats have a story about this election. It goes like this. The Supreme Court ruled that corporations have free speech rights in the Supreme Court decision Citizens United. Since then, all this corporate money has flowed into campaigns, blah blah blah. And the press has completely accepted this line of thinking. It is complete nonsense. They probably want to concoct a | Read More »
The Battle for America begins in 20 Days
However, the movie is already out: In Generation Zero, Citizens United & Director Stephen Bannon laid out the crimes. In Fire from the Heartland they observed the heroes. The third film of this stylized trilogy is the final act and we are all in it. The Battle for America wasn’t specifically written for politicos like you and me. It was developed with the sideliners in | Read More »
Yet Again the NRA Sells Out Freedom to the Democrats
From the NRA press release on the day of the Citizens United decision, Wayne LaPierre called the decision “…a defeat for arrogant elitists who wanted to carve out free speech as a privilege for themselves and deny it to the rest of us.” SOURCE There are few organizations purportedly on the side of freedom that aggravate me more than the National Rifle Association. In fact, | Read More »
Democrats Want to Regulate Bloggers & Shut Us Up
“Democrats want to bring bloggers—all bloggers—not just conservative ones—under the control of federal campaign finance regulations.” Just when you thought the Democrats had gone after every possible sub-group in America, either through punitive taxes, confusing regulatory burdens, stifling federal takeovers, or just rhetorical attacks, it appears that the Democrats had left out one group. Bloggers. Until now. On January 21, 2010, the Supreme Court ruled, | Read More »
