Bankruptcy of the media reform agenda
Two stories emerged this week that demonstrate the absolute intellectual bankruptcy of the media reform agenda. It is just another attempt to gain power for the left. A Huffington Post writer argued that Clear Channel and Rupert Murdoch’s media empire should be broken up by the FCC and the DOJ’s anti-trust division: The Obama Administration’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and a revivified Anti-Trust Division of | Read More »
A recap of the AIG Bonus Blame Party.
So, let us review the bidding on the AIG bonus scandal, and who’s being blamed for it. The Senate, in the person of Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT), is blaming the executive branch, pretty explicitly. The House, in the person of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), is likewise blaming the executive branch – but she’s also blaming the Senate. The White House doesn’t want to blame anybody… | Read More »

Another Corrupt House Democrat?
Alan Mollohan has been under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a few years. Today it’s reported that his charitable foundation received free rent from a high-tech consortium that he blessed with millions of dollars in earmarks: The West Virginia High Tech Consortium has provided more than $75,000 in free rent and administrative services to the Robert H.

Nancy Pelosi’s Enemies List
Detailed here. Note the reason why Pelosi dislikes House Republican Whip Eric Cantor: Pelosi has good personal relationship with House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio). But members of her leadership cadre are starting to really dislike Cantor, despite their public pose of studied indifference. Part of the reason: Cantor is employing many of the same techniques Pelosi used so successfully to torture former House | Read More »
Its The “F***ing” Economy You Morons!!!!!!!!
I am astounded at watching these idiotic children who are referrect to as leaders of the Republican Party in their hissy fit fight. First of all my five year old grand daughter fights tougher then Eric Cantor, Michael Steele, and Rush Limbaugh fight. OK I know you three are not the brightest bulbs in the circuit but do try to wrap your minds around this. | Read More »
The Orchestrated Effort to Start Limbaugh vs. Cantor
I told you yesterday that the ABC News story saying Cantor rebuked Limbaugh was an organized effort on the left. Today we find out why. The Politico publishes a list of the people Nancy Pelosi hates. Rush Limbaugh and Eric Cantor are the top two guys on the right that she hates. It’s kind of sad Boehner and McConnell aren’t up there. But Cantor and | Read More »
Democrats on track to double national debt by 2010
The Democrat-controlled Congress, with help from President Obama’s big government vision, is on track to double the national debt in four years. USA Today published an interactive chart that provides annual revenue, spending, deficit and national debt numbers. The most frightening number is the national debt. When the Pelosi/Reid left-wing Democrats took control of Congress, the national debt stood at $9 trillion. Based on Obama’s | Read More »
Trouble In Paradise
Her dig at George W. Bush notwithstanding, it is clear that Nancy Pelosi’s veto of any prospect of reviving the assault weapons ban that Eric Holder and the Obama Administration want, demonstrates that despite the election, Second Amendment rights are still very much on the march. This little incident shows a great deal; we see that Congressional Democrats are very much aware of lines that | Read More »
Democrat Money Laundering (Re-Distribution)… Pet Projects, Political Pay-Back, Earmarks, TARP II, Porkulus II, etc…
It is all the same old Liberal Spending attempting to be couched in new terms and that is all! Whether it be a Governor, a City Mayor, or John Q. Public putting forth the “suggested” need for Government Spending doesn’t matter. Couching it as “Shovel Ready” also doesn’t change the Fact that it has been someones Pet Project, for potentially years prior to this point | Read More »

Pope makes firm statement to Pelosi on abortion.
I’m going to put up the full text of the Vatican’s statement about Nancy Pelosi’s visit with the Pope, because I suspect that they want this put out there: Following the General Audience the Holy Father briefly greeted Mrs Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the United States House of Representatives, together with her entourage. His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the | Read More »
Speaker Pelosi to meet with Pope Benedict XVI.
It’s always exciting when a notorious heretic meets the Pope. Particularly this Pope, who is quietly gearing the Church up for a long-delayed showdown with American Catholics over abortion: Pope Benedict to meet Pelosi In a move likely to stoke more controversy about whether Catholic politicians who support abortion rights are in line with the church, Pope Benedict XVI has granted an audience to House | Read More »
House Republicans Stand Firm, Vote Against Porkulus; Bill Passes House – UPDATE
Here’s the roll, 246-183. Every Republican that voted went against it (176; 2 didn’t vote). A big thank you from me to John Boehner and Eric Cantor for lining up against this travesty, along with every other Republican (Rep. Price, Rep. Shaddeg, etc.) who presented the American people with all the ethically questionable activity by the Democrats in getting this bill passed, and for standing | Read More »
