Origin, myth of the “lobbyist”; Glenn Beck uses another fake Thomas Jefferson quote
ORIGIN, MYTH OF THE “LOBBYIST” On “The O’Reilly Factor” last Friday, Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly were discussing the lobbyists in the Obama administration (a familiar theme here at RedState). Beck said that Obama probably thinks a lobbyist is someone who just stands in the lobby. O’Reilly asked Beck if he knew what administration coined the term “lobbyist.” Beck guessed “Wilson” and “FDR.” O’Reilly said | Read More »
Voting For America
For, borne on the night-wind of the Past, Through all our history, to the last, In the hour of darkness and peril and need, The people will waken and listen to hear The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed, And the midnight message of Paul Revere. Longfellow’s night-wind of the Past blew into the Northeast yesterday as Massachusetts elected Scott Brown to be their new senator; | Read More »
Founding Father Caesar Rodney: Who He Was and Why He Matters Today
America’s ruling class in 2010 bears a closer resemblance to the oppressive British rule which she broke free from during her founding than her founders. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are no longer “inalienable” and “endowed by our Creator.” An air of self-importance and superiority has so marinated our elected officials that they seem infected with the madness of King George, rather than | Read More »
Islamic Jihad, not George W. Bush, is Responsible for the Fort Hood Tragedy
Watching the coverage of the national tragedy in Fort Hood, one is forced into one of two conclusions regarding the media–either they are absolute idiots or they are politically correct cowards. Either way this nation is in for a world of hurt. The much-maligned 43rd president of the United States for the most part, rightly understood that America is at war with radical Islam. For | Read More »
Breaking: Founding Fathers Take On Obama In Roundtable Discussion!
The following is a vigorous debate from a roundtable discussion between the founding fathers and Obama and his pals: THOMAS JEFFERSON: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for | Read More »
The Wise Latina Lies Her Face Off
Judge Sonia Sotomayor has proven to be a chameleon. In front of the Senate, you’d think that milady had been nominated by Presidents Reagan or Bush. According to her shamefully dishonest statements before the United States Senate, you would have to conclude that Sonia Sotomayor is a strict constructionist when it comes to her role in the court. Her record and a lifetime of past | Read More »
Ruth “Eugenia” Ginsburg
Politicians are notorious for obfuscating the truth, so Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s admission that her belief, “…that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of,” was stunning on many levels. The most glaring portion of her statement is contained in the revealing words, “…that we don’t want to | Read More »
President Obama, Do You Mean To Praise THAT Treaty of Tripoli?
My jaw dropped when I heard the following statement made by the 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama during a speech in Cairo this morning: The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco. In signing the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796, our second President, John Adams, wrote, ‘The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion | Read More »
Signs You’re a Right-Wing Extremist
Overheard at a Tea Party in Alabama… The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. –Thomas Jefferson Plus, Stephen Gordon riffs on you might be a right-wing extremist if… Read More
Nothing New Under the Sun about Political Party Infighting Notwithstanding the Hand-wringing of Colin Powell and Arlen Specter
A tip of the hat to Steve Foley linking a blogger who wrote the following: 2009-05-13 Thomas Jefferson warned us of Heretics [RINOs] 1803 AD “I have spoken of the [Republicans] as if they were a homogenous body, but this is not the truth. Under that name lurks the heretical sect of [liberals]. Afraid to wear their own name, they creep under the mantle of | Read More »
The Reagan Revolution – Not
I recently read the transcript of a lecture by Stephen F. Hadley delivered on April 13th in the Bradley lecture series, and it moved me to write this diary, and how I view what Mr Hadley said applies to the April 15th Tea Party events. One of the main premises in his speech is that President Reagan was not calling for a Revolution, but instead | Read More »
The Wit & Wisdom of the Great Scripted One
“Rule 1: Never allow a crisis to go to waste,” White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel told the New York Times right after the election. “They are opportunities to do big things.” Those big things scare me. In a time of massive economic hardship, we have a Treasury Secretary telling congress he won’t consider a worldwide currency and then embracing that same worldwide currency | Read More »
Sarah Palin and the Intelligence “Issue”. Yes, I’m mad.
If you think she’s dumb, then I encourage you to use your own smarts to build a time machine and forever send yourself to pre-1776 times; you’ll like it there. Throughout the general election campaign, I have been thoroughly disgusted with people who demonize Sarah Palin. Since the end of August, there has been no shortage of folks who choose to say that they “can’t | Read More »

Jefferson, Madison, and the Founders’ Approach: Fight the Fairness Doctrine!
These responses to the Sedition Acts of 1798, which limited anti-government speech in the wake of the Quasi-War with France, were authored by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and passed by their respective State Assemblies: One of the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, emphasis mine: 3) Resolved, That it is true as a general principle, and is also expressly declared by one of the amendments to | Read More »
