US Chief Law Enforcement Officer shows once again he’s no fan of Law Enforcement
First, Police Chief of the United States Barack Obama jumps at the chance to say police “acted stupidly” before knowing anything of the details of the detention of Professor Gates in Cambridge. Now with the passing of the Arizona immigration law SB 1070, the rhetoric ratcheting up, fires starting to burn, Obama throws gasoline on the spark; Is it possible President Obama is inciting violence | Read More »
Nice job, NRSC. Hey Crist, gonna give any of that swell money back?
Doubt he will, as Erick Erickson writes, Crist blew that wad already; Charlie Crist will not only run as an independent in Florida, but he has also reserved all of his air time in Florida through November, or as much as he can. Why? Because he knows the Club for Growth is going to do what they did to Specter — fund an effort to | Read More »
San Francisco officials should think before opening their collective pie holes about Arizona
In the wake of Arizona’s passage of SB 1070 many on the left have weighed in on various aspects of the new law, calling it “racist”, and “Nazi-like”, among other idiocies. None that I’ve heard so far equal the elected officials of the city of San Francisco, considering their current circumstances. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors is calling for a boycott of Arizona via | Read More »

Racist Teapartiers: They must be here somewhere…
Americans for Prosperity went out to cover the April 15th Tea Parties across the country, and copied a nice cross-section of what fed up Americans are all about. At one such rally, they found a couple of Obama supporters claiming to be against “White Supremacy” and asked them for proof that the Tea Party is racist. James Taranto wrote; Meanwhile, Americans for Prosperity has an | Read More »
Hey! How about the USS Jane Fonda?
I honestly don’t know how to write this without getting myself into trouble, and I’m dumbfounded. I was catching up with the Navy Times online when I saw something that made my jaw drop; The Navy’s 10th San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock will be named for Rep. John Murtha, the long-serving Pennsylvania Democrat who chaired the powerful House appropriations defense subcommittee before he died in | Read More »
No missile worry from Iran until 2015. Unless…
Two things I would imagine have the Obama administration breathing a sigh of relief, both via the UK Telegraph; Asked at a senate hearing about Tehran’s missile capability, James Miller, principal deputy undersecretary of defence for policy, said current estimates indicate “that it could potentially be as soon as 2015 [where a missile from Iran could reach the US].” This would put it well past | Read More »
The Anti-Soros SoS Project Candidate-Damon Dunn
By now you’ve no doubt heard of the George Soros funded Secretary of State Project, established as a backlash against a leftist-perceived “engineered loss” of the Algore candidacy in 2000. The left as part of its blame assignment included Katherine Harris, then the Florida Secretary of State who after endless delays (see Algore, Cheat) declared G. W. Bush the winner. The light bulbs came on; | Read More »
Axelrod spins the Israeli PM snub
Axelface Axelrod put out the “Official Spin” on the snub of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu today, which we’ll gladly de-construct here; Obama met the Israeli leader in the White House on Tuesday but did not dine with his visitor and, by keeping the talks closed to the media, also denied Netanyahu the courtesy of a photo-opportunity with the president. Obama didn’t want to be | Read More »
Once again, “Job Creation” isn’t on Obama’s to-do list

Does the Christian Right have a home?
My wife had a computer problem recently, the blue screen of death (BSOD) would stop things dead and force her to restart the computer. Of course, whatever she was doing at the time was toast, be it EBay, Farmville, or loading her IPod. It was distressing, to say the least. If I’ve learned one thing about computer problems, it’s that someone somewhere has had the | Read More »
Against All Enemies
As I rapidly approach the time I set for myself to retire from a combined active-duty/reserve-duty 20 year career in the US Navy Seabees, I find myself often lost in reflection; thinking about friends who retired before me, remembering some who tired of the reserves constant interruption in their lives and packed it in. Thinking about brothers and sisters who willingly went overseas to a | Read More »
Like London during the blitz?
We’re sitting around on a Sunday night knowing our country is under attack, and that an attack is imminent. But we’re used to living like that, it shouldn’t be that way, but it is. And we deal with it. So we’re watching TV, messing around on the internet: suddenly an alert is sounded;
Want to quit wasting our time on your hostile take over of our Health Care?
Just on my way back from dropping off a car at a dealer 10 miles away, had my IPod cranking, light traffic, nice day. Then I noticed a car dealer that had been at the same location forever, closed. Not a new car dealer, mind you, a used car lot that had formerly done a great business. Perfect location, right beside the freeway, they took | Read More »
Interesting things about this “Coffee Party”
Supposedly started by “Documentary filmmaker” Annabel Park ranting on Facebook mere “weeks” ago, at nearly the same time a domain name is registered, and a professional looking site pops up. All within a month. Annabel Park, the Facebook ranter, is rather interesting as well, having been “…associated with a large number of leftist groups including, Asian Pacific Americans for Progress, Asian Americans for Obama, and | Read More »

What is this? A fortune cookie or Healthcare?
I recently relented on Facebook, and against my better judgment (and under “intense” family pressure), started with the “Farmville” time suck. If you’ve never, you probably shouldn’t. You tend cartoon crops, and every one to three days are made to click on a maddeningly slow UI to harvest your ‘toon crops, plow your ‘toon field, and plant ‘toon seeds so you can start the whole | Read More »
