New Obama 2012 Ad, RNC Response Ad
The President’s 2012 campaign is underway, and they’ve released the first ad, titled “It Begins With Us.” Allow me to summarize: “Remember how much you liked the President in 2008? That was awesome. But he’s super busy now. Here are some pictures of farms and voters!” Kind of ironic name for a reelection campaign ad. Begins? What were the last four years, pre-boarding? Anyway, the | Read More »

Open Thread: Odyssey Dawn?
Fairly amusing Daily Show bit on the muddled mission: I had a similar thought on the goal-in-motion earlier today on twitter. Clarity! OPEN THREAD
Drill Here. Drill Now. PAY LESS.
From the video description: Gas prices are rapidly increasing and could reach record levels by this summer, but President Obama is preventing us from harnessing our nation’s massive domestic oil supply. It’s time to tell President Obama to Drill Here, Drill Now. Even Bill Clinton says delay in permitting are “ridiculous“. Gas prices are out of control. I don’t even have to relate the skyrocketing | Read More »
Video: Say DEBT 50 Times, Fast.
The newest video from Freedom Works is out: .. and it is awesome. The avalanche of debt in America is epic in scope. And Governors are under siege by those who would do nothing. As the video says, this tea party ain’t over yet. Video directed and produced by Benjamin Howe for Freedom Works and FreedomConnector.com.
Video: Michael Moore Robin Hoodwinked
In the above video, Mary Katharine Ham absolutely devastates Michael Moore‘s Robin Hood Hypothesis regarding America’s money woes. Spoiler alert: It’s a stupid hypothesis. The grand total of the combined net worth of every single one of America’s billionaires is roughly $1.3 trillion. It does indeed sound like a “ton of cash” until one considers that the 2011 deficit alone is $1.6 trillion. So, if | Read More »
Video: 61 Billion Peanuts
This short video, produced by the Cato Insitute, puts $61 Billion in spending cuts into alarming perspective. OPEN THREAD
Olympic Logo Secret Message SCANDAL!!
Iran is Irate (that was a gimme) over the 2012 London Olympics. More specifically, over the logo, threatening to boycott the games. You see, they believe there is a hidden message in the logo. Here, first, I menacingly present the original. I know what you’re thinking … UGLY. Agreed. (Or perhaps you were thinking: Is that Bill Clinton getting a … phone call? And for | Read More »
Video: Story of Citizens United v. FEC, The Critique
This is a great video that takes apart Annie Leonard’s (of Story of Stuff infamy) new video “The Story of Citizens United v. FEC.” Watch the whole thing, it’s an absolute fisking of a serial propagandist. You can see more videos from How The World Works here on the youtube channel.
Video: New From FreedomConnector – Join The Fight
This is the latest web ad from FreedomWorks. Focusing on the ongoing union protests, the video promotes their new website, FreedomConnector.com. I’ve used the site several times and it is a fantastic way to keep track of particular congressional districts, including who is holding events, when, where, and why. It also connects users to other politically active folks in their area. It’s very useful, very | Read More »
Open Thread: Inhofe’s Green Ambush
As reported this afternoon at RedState by diarist russellc, and in light of my earlier post featuring Ann McElhinney, here is Senator Inhofe in a similar green ambush from yesterday, ICYMI: Nicely done. As a side note, good on the Senator’s staff for having the good sense to take their own recording so there would be an unedited version available. Take note, hill staffers. OPEN | Read More »
Enviro’s CPAC Ambush Backfires
This is must-see TV: The environmentalist in this video was heckling Ann McElhinney of Not Evil, Just Wrong while she was being interviewed by Ed Morrissey of Hot Air. The above confrontation took place directly after, briefly interrupting another Hot Air interview. As you can see, Kenny G. thought he was ambushing Ann. Unfortunately for him, Ann turned the tables quickly and the rest is | Read More »
Video: Obama Budget Ignores 800 Pound Gorilla
From Citizens United, the latest 800 Pound Gorilla video: President Obama’s fiscal year 2012 budget ignores the 800 pound gorilla in the room – our $14,000,000,000,000.00 national debt. Consider this an Open Thread.
The Needle: Lee Stranahan on Pigford, Snooki, and Breitbart
In today’s podcast, Lori and I interview Lee Stranahan. Lee is a filmmaker, a Huffington Post contributor, a twitterer, and a known associate of Tommy Christopher. You should feel free to hold that against him. We discuss the details of the complex Pigford story which Lee has been investigating both independently and in conjunction with Andrew Breitbart and the Big sites. We have some fascinating | Read More »
Morrissey interviews Breitbart about Pigford story
From Hot Air, an update from Andrew Breitbart on the developing Pigford story, which is a sordid tale of fraud and scandal. This story has been investigated chiefly by Lee Stranahan, a liberal Huffington Post contributor who hasn’t been afraid to find the truth, or timid about posting his findings at BigJournalism and BigGovernment. Here’s Andrew with the latest. Part One: For part two, visit | Read More »
