Tired of the Northeastern RINOs Yet?
Take note, South Carolina. We know that Mitt Romney has been on all sides of basically every issue, but the broader concern here is: are conservatives tired of stressing about and being duped by northeastern so-called Republicans and their mostly liberal voting records–leading to political survival in Democrat states. But, seriously, is anyone else tired of this? And again, I ask, why is a government-run healthcare lover a | Read More »
Parental consent for TSA pat-downs, but not for abortions
Outrage over the video posted on YouTube of a six-year old girl being “patted down” by a TSA employee triggered this potential change to TSA procedures: In response to a YouTube video of a 6-year-old girl receiving a pat-down from a Transportation Security Administration officer, Congressman Jason Chaffetz is drafting legislation that will require parental supervision during the pat-down of a child. “They claim there | Read More »
What are the Planned Parenthood contributions from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation used for?
This has been an ongoing controversy and now that LiveAction has come out with another sting on Planned Parenthood, this is significant. The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation states in its March 2011 Statement on Planned Parenthood: Early screening through mammograms and education is critical to end the suffering from this disease: 98 percent of women treated for early stage breast cancer, before it | Read More »
Speaker Boehner needs to show America What Real Leadership Is
Americans delivered the House a record 63 Republican seats to ensure that the peoples’ voices would be heard. And, while the voters thought their message was clear and received, now, it seems, the real battle ensues. While Congress continues to kick the budget and debt can down the road and passes continuing resolutions to thwart a government shutdown, the Democrat leadership has dropped several messages to the GOP leadership: “They | Read More »
Obama’s refusal to provide records on healthcare meetings should sound alarms
The obvious question is why? Why would the Obama administration who boasted open and transparent discussions of such a sensitive subject as healthcare close the door to the opportunity to present its factual case to the American people? Messaging anyone? Nope. Complying with the records request from the House Energy and Commerce Committee “would constitute a vast and expensive undertaking” and could “implicate longstanding executive branch | Read More »
Video: WI Dem. Rep. Gordon Hintz understands why he is the minority party
Simply priceless to watch WI Democrat Gordon Hintz have this meltdown on the Assembly floor. Take away his anger and you’d think he was talking about the Obamacare bill that was rammed down our throats this time last year. But, I guess that was different–government takeover of one-sixth of the US economy, increasing health insurance premiums, and stripping doctors and patients of their rights is good, whereas fixing | Read More »
Wisconsin Democrat Fleebaggers violate Senate Rule 23
Yes, Rule 23: Senate Rule 23 Senate Rule 23. Committee not to be absent. Members of a committee, except a conference committee, may not be absent by reason of their appointment during the sitting of the senate, without special leave. [am. 2001 S.Res. 2] emphasis mine I’m a literal type of gal, and “may not” means you absolutely, positively cannot be absent–without taking special leave | Read More »
A time for remembering
Typically, I do not get personal on my posts, but behind each blogger is a story–much like all of you have a story–and now it’s time to tell you a story of a great man who passed this week. While I have known many successful men with fruitful lives, only two elder men have been major influences in my life–my father and my father-in-law, Neil. | Read More »
Video: Maybe Loughner watched Chris Matthews
Could this have been Jared Lee Loughner’s call? Probably not, but if Chris Matthews continues to go down this blood libel road, he and his guest should be held accountable as well for even discussing the notion of another massacre of Americans for President Obama to use to regain a connectedness to the American people. An easier way, with no bloodshed, would be for Obama to govern from | Read More »
Video: Remember Alec Baldwin’s rant on killing Congressional Republicans, their wives, and children?
With all of the talk of vitriolic rhetoric and images, the Left conveniently ignores so many vicious attacks–verbal and physical–on conservatives, Republicans, and anyone else who disagrees with them. They attempt to bully their political opponents into submission and silence–with the MSM in lock step with them–the mask off. And if there was even a shred of hope that the MSM would get back in the | Read More »
Kirsten Powers Fesses Up; The Hill and Politico Silent on Truth about Bush Veto Override
The other day I pointed out that Fox News analyst Kirsten Powers should really fact check any talking point coming from the White House and held her responsible (fair is fair) for her own ignorance of the end-of-life provision that she debated on Hannity. To review, Powers said that President George W. Bush’s veto of the bill that included the end-of-life provision was “not true.” I reported | Read More »
Actually, Bush VETOED the 2008 bill slipping in the end-of-life provision
I’m going to take the death panel end-of-life planning conundrum down one point at a time to make this very clear for Americans to understand what the Pelosi-led Democrats have done to your healthcare and attempt to take cover under a Bush-era law–the Medicare Improvement for Patients and Providers Act of 2008. The Hill reported that the Obama White House attempted to calm Americans’ fears | Read More »
Wonder What Newt and Mitt Think; Bob Bennett to Vote for Trillion Dollar Omnibus Bill
Nothing from the Democrats surprises us anymore, but I’m sure that 2012 presidential hopefuls Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney are quite surprised to hear that outgoing Senator Bob Bennett (R-UT) will support the trillion dollar pork-stuffed omnibus bill. And they should be a bit alarmed as well as they both actively campaigned for Bennett. Newt helped kick off the Bennett campaign by slamming the Obama agenda and the Democrats’ | Read More »
Why Is Obama Manufacturing a Crisis for START Ratification?
From my original post at Big Peace When analyzing the sudden urgency for the ratification of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), we have to look at the pattern of the Obama administration and the tendency to go into full crisis mode to get what they want passed. START is no different, but is it more panic and political to save face and recover political capital lost in | Read More »
Why Is a Government-Run Healthcare Lover a 2012 GOP Frontrunner?
From my original at Big Government Yes, I’m serious. Why is Mitt Romney even in the running, when healthcare played such an important role in the mid-term elections as noted by Rasmussen: Fifty-nine percent (59%) of those who voted in today’s elections nationwide favor repeal of the national health care bill passed by congressional Democrats in March, including 48% who Strongly Favor it. Rasmussen Reports | Read More »
Ohio Democrat and Documented Wife Beater Rep. Charlie Wilson Is a National Disgrace
Originally posted at Big Government Democrat Congressman Charlie Wilson (OH-6) is a documented wife beater. Clara Wilson documented her abuse at the hands of her husband in great detail as evidenced here. On October 1, 2010 President Obama signed a “Presidential Proclamation” denoting October 2010 as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The proclamation states: Ending domestic violence requires a collaborative effort involving every part of our society. | Read More »
Democrat Alex Sink Cheats in Debate, Then Blames/Fires Aide; and Lies to Cover
Does any Democrat know how to take responsibility for their actions?During the CNN/St. Petersburg Times Florida gubernatorial debate, Alex Sink’s makeup artist showed her a text messagefrom a campaign staffer, which was a clear violation of the debate rules. CNN reports: Sink, the Democratic nominee, was shown a two-sentence message on a cell phone that offered her advice during the debate. Republican nominee Rick Scott | Read More »
Two Weeks Later: Democrat Rep. Charlie Wilson Is Still a Wife Beater
Ohio District 6 are you listening? No one likes a wife beater–especially someone that plays it off that he doesn’t hit women–but really beats his wife into submission as noted in the court documents: Charles admits that early in the marriage he kicked and struck Plaintiff and accused her of adultery . Clara shall confirm the beatings, slappings, and kicking at the early stage of her | Read More »
Dick Blumenthal Is Delusional.
Dick Blumenthal appears to have hand foot in mouth disease. Is he really that out of touch with America and Connecticut voters? Hasn’t he realized that there are a record number of people on food stamps and unemployment is almost 10%? Good Times? Really, Dick? Linda McMahon’s site is here. Crossposted to RWN
The Will of the People: America’s Last Best Hope
The video is a few days old, but I’ve added some follow-up thoughts. A terrific video produced by Ben Howe here at RedState is a great reminder that November is coming–and why this midterm election is so critical in solidifying America’s future path. The video speaks for itself, but I’d like to stress a couple of key points for those voters who remain undecided and still | Read More »
Video: Swiss Minister Gets Giggles, but What’s He Talking About?
I don’t speak Austrian German, French, Italian, or Romansh, which are the four languages of Switzerland, but have to ask: is the Swiss Minister reading the Obamacare law, the financial reform law, or discussing Obamanomics? All of which are a joke. Just sayin. Crossposted at Right Wing News
Harry Reid’s Mosque Dissent Is Political
After some digging in CSPAN’s archives, I found this video of Harry Reid from October 15, 2001 speaking on the Senate floor. Reid reads a letter he received from a student explaining that Islam is a peaceful and tolerant religion. While I’m not going to delve into Islam the religion, I will take the opportunity to point out that it is very odd for Reid to come | Read More »
What Happened to the 400,000 Jobs Pelosi Promised after Healthcare ‘Reform’ Passed?
From my original post at Big Government Back in February 2010, Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised the American people that approximately 400,000 jobs would be created due to the passage of the healthcare bill. Remember Pelosi promised this: Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the health summit: “It’s about jobs. In it’s life, it [the health bill] will create 4 million jobs — 400,000 jobs almost | Read More »
Democrats Continue to Loot Food Stamp Fund, Now Helping the SEIU
Medicare is broke. A record number of Americans are on food stamps thanks to all of the economic stimulus being thrown around by the Obama administration and congressional Democrats. So, what do Democrats do when they are finished looting Medicare; they move on to the next and hope no one notices. Not so. The Hill reports the Democrats’ plan for the Child Nutrition Act and the | Read More »
Charlie Crist Hearts Obama and the Ground Zero Mosque
Florida’s newly “independent” governor, Charlie Crist, has come out in full support of the Ground Zero mosque by supporting Obama’s position: Gov. Charlie Crist, R-Fla., who was among those who met with Obama on Saturday, lauded the president’s position. “I think he’s right — I mean you know we’re a country that in my view stands for freedom of religion and respect for others,” Christ | Read More »
