Rush Orders: Calling Out Limbaugh. You didn’t do enough to save Virginia either!
First a bit of US History trivia: Who was the first Governor of Virginia? I am a Rush baby, and I listen to his show religiously. There is no better place to find out what is going on than his program. This week the Sultan of Snark was at it again, rightly criticizing the GOP (among other factors) for not doing enough to help Cuccinell | Read More »
The Liberal Media Shutdown
Liberal Media Shutdown Rather than engaging the in the crisis mode editorializing on the government shutdown I would like to speculate on a more productive course of action. Presently the media is in a full frontal attack on the remaining vestige of American statesmanship. At Redstate we know that there is a viable alternative to getting your news from the mouthpiece of the Democrat party. | Read More »
Open Letter to our Republican Senators: Immigration Strategy Notes
Like the Miami Heat full court press the Gang of Eight immigration bill is red hot and being served up right now. The debate around immigration is framed by the media as economic and political. As far as the economic implications, we know that we have immigrants working in the US now. From a political standpoint the conservative Republicans will lose if we cannot position | Read More »
Rush Orders: Why the Republicans Support Immigration Reform
Rush, let me explain to you what’s going on. You’ve asked for help multiple times today. I think you are playing possum. But for the sake of argument I will help you out. In your opening monologue today you kept saying that you don’t understand what the Republicans are doing when it comes to this Immigration Reform bill. Don’t you know who you are dealing | Read More »
Romney Target Marketing – Horses and Bayonets and Obama bin Laden
Romney came into last nights debate with a plan: to target the few remaining undecided voters and convert them. This was a chess move. He has demonstrated his willingness to attack in the first debate, spar in the second, and aikido in the third. My observations on last night’s debate: Romney knew his supporters will remain in his camp and there is very little he | Read More »
The power to tax is the power to destroy
I feel the vice as it tightens on my head and the noose is tighter on my neck. Your relationship with your government has been fundamentally changed by one man, Chief Justice John Roberts. The Obamacare mandate construed as a tax is a new boot on the neck of Americans. We’ve lost our freedom and I feel the pressure of government impinging on my ability to work and live | Read More »
Bush and waterboarding wins the day
“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy The events of the last 24-hours were brought to you by the efforts over the last 6 years. In the Politico: In the biggest break in a global pursuit of bin Laden that stretched back to the Clinton administration, the U.S. discovered the compound by following one of the terrorist’s personal couriers, identified by | Read More »
What Michele Bachmann should have said on Fox News Sunday
I like conservative women. That is why I married one. Good men need good women. As I watched Bachmann on Fox News Sunday this morning on hulu she held herself well. Chris Wallace took it upon himself to draw her out and basically provided a disagreeable front. This is fine, I would expect a desk interviewer to do nothing less. Chris is generally good at his job | Read More »
I’ve got an Ace up My Sleeve but it isn’t Trump.
No one doubts that Donald Trump is in it for el numbero uno. He says that our country is in dire straits but would he be willing to use his influence to support a legitimate Republican candidate? No. Therefore he is lying when he says that he knows we have to stop Obama. The only way Trump wants to stop Obama is if he can | Read More »
We will nominate Sarah Palin because…
She has what it takes to win – two X chromosomes. More on this later. She gives the best stump speech. Sarah Palin is feisty on the podium in an engaging, polemical and humorous way. She’s unabashedly conservative. Tea Party Grass Roots Americans across the country love her. This is our base. We need to combat the slander of media hatred with our enthusiastic support and passionate | Read More »
You Pick Two: Sarah Palin + Who? President and VP
Burn those straw polls – fundraising as surveys – and focus your attention with me. The first Republican presidential debate is nearly one month away. Right now we are obsessing about exploratory committees instead of consolidating power. (Simi Valley, CA) — The first debate between 2012 Republican presidential hopefuls will be held May 2nd at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley. Library officials made | Read More »
Does China Own US or Owe US – Hush Money?
Does China Own US or Owe US – Hush Money? Consider the following article by Joel Brinkley, published Sunday, April 25, 2010: This month, federal auditors published a study on “efforts to quantify the economic effects of counterfeit and pirated goods.” Over 36 single-spaced pages, the Government Accountability Office demonstrated that it’s impossible to know how much money is lost, how many jobs are eliminated, | Read More »
Response to Michael Smerconish’s conservative’s case for same-sex marriage
Michael Smerconish: A conservative’s case for same-sex marriage http://www.lacrossetribune.com/news/opinion/article_ec77b2ba-00a2-11df-90db-001cc4c002e0.html Let’s talk through this because it’s thinking like this that strikes at the foundation of a conservative coalition. The general rule is, “As a vote and voice in the conservative movement you don’t have to agree with all of our principles. The few we can agree on are important enough to emphasize. But conservatism will not | Read More »
Why submit to lies? Empty seats and Vacuous Polls
Why submit to lies? Empty seats are more powerful than rebuttal. Good job Joe Wilson, thank you for shouting our sentiments. ‘YOU LIE!’ You are right… Now what were you doing in the room? Why did the Republicans even show up for the Obama Speech to a Captive Audience last night? I would have much rather seen an empty side than pretend that this Health Care | Read More »
Conservatives and Blood Donations, research and logic
Have any of you ever donated blood. I’ve donated in the past, after about a year of not giving yesterday my wife and I went back to our Central Blood Bank. When you read the sign in sheet you find that many of the lifestyle questions would indicate a certain bent. This is not specifically political or idealogical but common – let’s use some logic | Read More »
Never Negotiate in Weakness – the Inordinate Pricing Distribution
Reading the Sunday paper, a mix of watchman warnings (to late) and cynic’s screeds. This thread starts with the premise: When Government Health Care becomes a mandate who can resist it? For all the talk about the distortions that will take place in the system, from hospitals and doctors to patient care and death-treatment… who among us will not be assimilated into the great collective | Read More »
Let’s Talk About Race: Gates, Obama and Keyes
Racism has reared its ugly head once again, haunting America as if from the great beyond. At least that is what El Presidente Barak (sp) Obama would have us believe. I for one don’t buy it. Prejudice has always existed in one form or another in every geographic area throughout history. To imply that America is unique in our relationship to intramural fighting among groups | Read More »
Shepard of the Law – what is judicial activism really?
On a more esoteric level – I would like to explore the connection between religion and the law. You can apply this to Judge Sonia Sotomayor in whatever way you see fit. At first it is apparent that religion consists of laws, rules for behavior. For those of you who would like to explore the difference between religion about God and a relationship with God | Read More »
What is torture? What is our government NOT telling us?
What is torture? What is our government NOT telling us? Thinking recently about these torture memos and something doesn’t smell right, and it’s not the stench coming from Eric Holders office. I’m thinking about the Senators and Congressmen sanctimoniously sitting in their leather chairs smiling pitilessly at reporters and cameras and witnesses. They are twisted individuals; we must understand this about our elected representatives. Politicians | Read More »
What stakes are higher than Life and Death?
The Associated Press: US captain’s rescue raises stakes in piracy ops These dopes in the AP seem to think that by Obama taking decisive action against these terrorists (whether or not that’s what he calls them) they are going to be more aggressive. Are they brain dead? Okay we know the answer is functionally yes. Let me rephrase: how brain dead are they? These people are imbecilic; | Read More »
Senate Bill rings the death knell of newspapers
You know that newspapers are on life support when congress has to step in with the shock paddles. These instruments of propaganda are already working hand-in-hand with government to legitimatize One Party Rule. I would say they are sleeping with the enemy, but one would have to have a prudent understanding of the press and what the first amendment actually entails to consider a newspaper | Read More »
Why listen to Obama Speak when His Actions are so Loud
Listening to Obama tonight (against my better judgement) left me with a few impressions: The job is catching up to him. His teleprompter was having an off day – Obama was stumbling through his opening remarks. His eyes look more shadowed, the glimer and glint are gone. His references to Bush (or the Bushes’) gave me a perspective on the job of president. I picture | Read More »
Economic Fascism – AIG only the most recent example
The imbecilic characterization of business as deceptive and even criminal is crushing enterprise in the US. If only it was not partially true. Right now we have a Joint Venture of Evil between government and industry. If only their activities were as illegal as they are immoral. Unfortunately the foxes are guarding the hen house. There is enough blame to go around concerning our “financial | Read More »
Some people have to learn the hard way…
And some people never learn. With each passing day I am wondering when this house of cards will come tumbling down. The sooner the better because if we continue this gradual slouching into Gomorrah slowly enough we will never return. I’m sure each of you had similar experiences, unless you are holed up in some enclave of patriotism. A few of my friends were taken | Read More »
Obama kept one promise – To Soros!
Obama is not singing a different tune, and he’s not being rolled by Pelosi and Reed. He’s doing exactly what he came into office to do – crush the American economy and bring this experiment in liberty to a halt. One reason that I can empirically make this claim is Obama’s ties to George Soros. We know that Soros tacitly supported Clinton Crime Syndicate Joint | Read More »
