The Middle Class Tax Cut Doesn’t Exist
There is no middle class tax cut. That’s right, the “tax cuts for 98% of Americans” the Democrats keep shouting about don’t exist. Instead, there are currently only three proposals on the table. The first of these is the Republican plan which has already been passed in the House of Representatives. This plan would maintain the Bush tax rates for all Americans. The second plan | Read More »
Flashback: Do You Remember Those Racist Condi Rice Cartoons?
As liberals continue to counter the criticism directed towards Ambassador Susan Rice with the race card, Eliana Johnson at National Review aptly noted how similar criticism was lobbied at Condoleezza Rice when she was nominated for Secretary of State. I made a note of this before in my previous post, Deciphering Susan Rice without Being Racist – but I only cited Katrina Vanden Heuvel’s statements. | Read More »
Economic growth the key to future of America, GOP, and Fiscal Cliff
The union-instigated potential demise of Hostess has conservatives witnessing with bemusement the fruits of Obamism: striking union members facing job losses and unemployment checks. The only problem with Republican and conservative Twinkiefreude is that further economic decay and government dependence HELP ELECT MORE DEMOCRATS, which continues our downward spiral to doom. The antidote to this demise, for the United States, and yes, the GOP, is | Read More »
Deciphering Susan Rice Without Being Racist
I’m almost at the mark! I’m so excited. I just have one more jar of Ovaltine to drink before I’m able to send in my application for the James Clyburn Racial Code Word Decipher. It’s going to be useful – as we all try to make sense of the various racial code wards that have been hurled at Ambassador Susan Rice for her incompetence less than adequate | Read More »
Tech at Night: Google back on the Net Neutrality train. Anonymous declares war on Israel.
Hey everyone. Sorry for not doing this Friday night. I was a bit out of it. So, we’re doing this Saturday night.
Some people just don’t learn, though. Google is still defending Net Neutrality incredibly enough. So are Facebook and Netflix, by the way (shameless plug for Amazon Prime streaming alternative).
Of course, there’s a problem here: Google’s PAC splits evenly D/R in donations, but The people of Google lean so far left they gave $737k to Obama, versus $31k to Romney. Think about that. Mo wonder they’re still trying to feed a beast of regulation that may try to break it up.
If anything does in Bay area innovators, it’ll be their slavish devotion to big-government Democrats.

Sen. Mike Lee and Senator-Elect Ted Cruz: ‘Our Ideas Work, Their Ideas Don’t’
Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Senator-Elect Ted Cruz (R-TX) were adamant about two things when they addressed The Federalist Society’s discussion about constitutional law and the Supreme Court yesterday: “our [conservative] ideas work, their [ liberal] ideas don’t.” Furthermore, our ideas have been winning the argument, which explains why law schools are limiting the amount of speakers – invited by Federalist Society – chapters that | Read More »

Democrats Want To Go Off The Fiscal Cliff
During the president’s Nov. 14 news conference, he channeled the Sandy response as a “metaphor” for how the federal government should operate. “It’s been aggressive and strong and fast and robust and a lot of people have been helped because of it…that’s a pretty good metaphor for how I want federal government to operate generally, and I’m going to do everything I can to make sure | Read More »
Demographics Poses A Challenge to Republicans, But It’s Not Unwinnable
Demographic shifts, Hispanic outreach, and how to make inroads with the youth have dominated conservative circles after a resounding Obama win last week. It’s a discussion conservatives must have if they are to survive as a national political force. Mitt Romney lost Hispanics, with almost 75% of them voting for the president, and young, single women. Again, single women voted overwhelmingly for the president 67% | Read More »
Changing Demographics Threaten Republican Texas
Yes, demographics talk will dominate the political discourse – and it should worry us. Immigration, as an issue, and Republican ineptitude to convey a sensible policy to ameliorate our perceived anti-immigrant leanings, ruined the Californian Republican Party forever. Furthermore, New York and Pennsylvania are, to coin a term from Senator-elect Ted Cruz, “unalterably” Democratic. Based on the last presidential election, we’re already down 104 electoral | Read More »
How Immigration Ruined The Californian Republican Party
As we on the Right continue to ponder how we got handily beaten by a president with a dismal record, one of the areas that are salient in our rebuilding efforts rests with Hispanic voters. About fifty thousand latinos turn eighteen every month, making this a key demographic Republicans must become competitive if we to survive as a political force. Losing Latinos to Democratic | Read More »
Electoral Reform- Part 1: Is There a Need?
On Election Day, as I was following the returns from around the country on Politico (I was following all the races, not just President), somewhere on the lower part of their list of articles was one entitled, “The Real Winner: More Gridlock.” This was published before any votes had been tallied and was the consensus of political “experts.” This was based on an assumption that | Read More »
Two Jokes That Aren’t Funny Anymore
Over the last four years, Republicans have consistently made two jokes about Pres. Obama that lost all humor on election night, 2012: 1. Barack Obama is the Campaigner-in-Chief 2. The only real job Barack Obama has ever had was as a community organizer. What does a community organizer even do? Here’s why they aren’t funny anymore. First, it’s true that Barack Obama never stopped | Read More »

The Day After…
Well, we lost. Mitt Romney didn’t win comfortably. BUT, Republicans maintained control of the House of Representatives. In one of the most ignominious highlights of the night, the GOP lost two senate seats – increasing the Democratic majority by two. The current makeup is 55 Democrats to 45 Republicans. In a milestone for the ladies, 20% of the U.S. Senate will be represented by women. | Read More »

Serious Question: Why shouldn’t we go off the fiscal cliff?
I know this sounds like apostasy, but as someone who was dubious about all the happy talk coming from Conservatism, Inc. over the past couple months, I feel like we should look at this. I know the Bush tax cuts are important, but what about the spending cuts as well? Obama will never extend the Bush tax cuts now anyway, so why go down that | Read More »
Good News Out of PA
After casting my ballot for Mitt Romney, I tuned into Julie Mason’s The Press Pool on Sirius XM during my three hour trek back to Maryland. Mason’s guest was Pittsburgh-Tribune Review staff writer and editorial page columnist Salena Zito, who detailed how Romney could win Pennsylvania tonight. One indicator was Romney’s rally in Bucks County, which drew 30,000 people. She aptly noted how this doesn’t | Read More »
