It is being played. About the only thing that needs to be added to the mix is increased publicity concerning the actions of Senate Republicans, along with questions on why Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats won’t allow for offshore drilling to take place in light of the tremendous gas price increase the country has experienced. If those questions are asked insistently, Republicans will gain | Read More »
The End Of Freedom Of Speech
No one has ever accused me of being an alarmist, but I fear what will take place if the Dimocrats take it all in November. Barack Obama on his flight to Germany accosted Major Garrett in why was it that Fox News was always on wherever he went in Iraq and Afghanistan. He alluded that President Bush maybe mandated that only Fox would be shown.They | Read More »
Governor Schwarzenegger favors Democrats in judicial appointments
Governor Schwarzenegger has announced a new slate of judicial appointees, and he is now completely favoring left-wing Democrats. In the past he was managing to appoint slightly more Republicans than Democrats, as Jon Fleischman points out, but now he has gone completely over the line and favors Democrats over Republicans. The numbers: in May he appointed 9 Republicans, 8 Democrats, but now he’s appointed 16 | Read More »
Obama, Islam and Polling
Gallup did another poll on the silly issue of “Is Obama Muslim?” They find that 12% of Rs and 12% of Ds think Obama is Muslim. So it’s not just a partisan thing. Interesting, they don’t break it down by education or income which I presume make a difference. First, 12% is a ludicrously low number for getting a basic fact wrong among Americans, so | Read More »
Debunking the latest liberal myth
Liberal myths often quickly become talking points for the Democrats, and even as conservatives punch holes in them, the Left simply patches them up and floats them again. Such is the case with the latest liberal myth/Democrat talking point – that oil companies aren’t drilling on the lands they currently hold: “Big Oil is more interested in pumping up prices and pumping up their own | Read More »
Democrats don’t believe in ethics reform
How did this not get more attention? With reporting deadlines looming, congressional officers have issued revised guidelines that ease some of the lobbying disclosure requirements enacted last year. The revised guidance, issued by the Clerk of the House and Secretary of the Senate, relaxed the rules for disclosure of lobbyist contributions to parties at this summer’s Democratic and Republican national conventions, among other changes. So, | Read More »
Republican Registration Drops Across Most of Country
The easiest way to measure the overall partisan makeup of the country is to ask people. Many pollsters do this with regularity. Rasmussen does this on a monthly basis with a massive sample. Here are some of those numbers: DATE YEAR: R% D% I% Diff%Nov 2004: 37.1 38.6 24.3 -1.6Nov 2006: 31.4 37.5 31.2 -6.1Nov 2007: 32.5 37.4 30.2 -4.9 Jan 2008: 33.1 38.7 28.2 | Read More »
Oil drops for third day because of economics 101.
As much as we all have wanted to string speculators up by their thumbs (and they do have it coming), the drop in oil over the past three days has been because of downward pressure being placed on the market by fundamentals.
Speaking Of Total Failures, Nancy…
Apparently, our dear incompetent Nancy Pelosi believes President Bush…personally…is a complete failure: “You know, God bless him, bless his heart, president of the United States, a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject,” Pelosi replied. She then tsk-tsked Bush for “challenging Congress when we are trying to sweep up after his | Read More »
Democrat Lies About ‘Rights’
It’s amazing to see how a Democrat so warps the word “right” these days. Last week California Democrat Rep. Brad Sherman was only the latest Democrat to take the word “right” and misuse it for his disgusting, partisan ends when he decided that it was a “right” to unionize, but NOT a “right” to eschew a union. Sherman proposed last week that Section 14(b) of | Read More »

“Let them eat cake” Democrats
By Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report and The HinzSight Report The crisis can’t wait till Inauguration Day, 2009. America is not a TV show whose plot hinges on what camera angle CNN decides to use to make McCain look old and short and Obama look like he has a clue. Americans are hurting and the fact that we haven’t had two consecutive | Read More »

New York Times Shocker: Only 31% of Whites Have Favorable Opinion of Obama
As a rough estimate, if you believe the country is split 50/50, that means all of the white Republicans and 40% of the white Democrats do not have a favorable opinion of the Democrat nominee. Can you win a presidential election with those numbers? McCain has a 35% favorability rating. The real kicker for Hillary supporters is that their candidate has a favorability of 40% | Read More »

Yesterday’s Lesson: Lower taxes and labor freedom create jobs!
Rough day for Michigan families yesterday. Despite (lackluster) efforts at job creation and retention in the auto industry the day brought one round of bad news after another. The same day General Motors announced plans to reduce their payroll by a full twenty-percent, estimated at well over 3,000 jobs, we get word that Chattanooga, Tennessee, will be the new home of a Volkswagen plant, a | Read More »
