NBC Bans Pro-Life Ad During Super Bowl

January 31, 2009

Here’s the ad in question.  I personally think it’s pretty awesome: NBC stated that it does not intend to air political advocacy ads during the Super Bowl.  That’s their prerogative.  Yet, they told PETA that they might get their ad on if they edited it to coincide with NBC’s ethical standards a little bit more, but on [...]

Had Enough of TARP? Here Comes BARF!

January 30, 2009

First, there was the “Troubled Asset Relief Program” (TARP) which was the first nauseating bailout last fall.  Well, tax-cheat and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has an idea about what to do now that TARP has not really helped get the markets moving:  what Liz Moyer calls “BARF”, or the Bad Asset Repository Fund!  Here’s the [...]

And the New RNC Chair is: Michael Steele

January 30, 2009

Republicans elected their new RNC chair today, electing Maryland former Lt. Governor Michael Steele in the sixth ballot, defeating South Carolina RNC Chair Katon Dawson by a vote of  91 to 77.   Michael Steele brings fresh, outsider blood into the RNC.  Not being an RNC chair gives him a fresh perspective at leading our party [...]

Grow a Spine for a Ray of Hope

January 30, 2009

Rasmussen Reports has a new poll out showing that only 42 percent of the American people support Barack Obama’s stimulus package. That’s down three points from a week ago. Although the media will not report this lackluster showing for Obama’s plan or the fact that support is dropping with the same zeal they used to [...]

Not Another Gang of 14!

January 30, 2009

With the Republicans keeping a united front against the Stimulus Bill (a.k.a. Generational Theft Act of 2009, a.k.a. the Pork-ulus bill), it now goes to the squishy Republicans in the Senate.  Will the Republicans hold the line?  It appears most likely not.  Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) is putting together a “gang” of so-called moderates, much [...]

Ousting Blago

January 29, 2009

Blago is now the former Governor of Illinois. In a 59-0 vote, the Illinois State Senate sent a message to Rod Blagojevich:  don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out the door!  Don’t worry, every single media outlet within 3000 miles will want to hear Blago’s side of the story — how his trials and [...]

Economists Take On Obama

January 29, 2009

Obama recently has been acting if his economic stimulus ideas are universally accepted.  Indeed, he recently argued: There is no disagreement that we need action by our government, a recovery plan that will help to jump-start the economy. Indeed?  Well, a group of over 200 economists, including Nobel laureates, have written a letter to Obama [...]

Ann Coulter in Context

January 28, 2009

I stumbled across this quote while reading Ann Coulter’s latest column a few minutes ago. Throughout Obama’s entire life, doors were opened for him, his college applications smiled upon and favors bestowed simply because he is black — the original victim category in America. Being black is the highest victim caste because of blacks’ authentic [...]

244-188: Stimulus Passes House sans Republicans

January 28, 2009

Sweetness.  Not a single Republican broke ranks to vote for the $819 billion “stimulus” package (not including the extra 300 million or so in interest we’ll eventually have to pay on the deficit because of this bill), and 11 Blue Dogs decided they wanted to be reelected in 2010 without the stench of this monstrosity. I [...]

What Are We Doing Here?

January 28, 2009

I am getting the feeling that history books will look at this economic crisis and wonder what the hell we are doing?  It seems that the idea of billions and trillions of dollars has lost its shock value with the American People.  We had a $750 billion TARP bailout package, the FED has increased the [...]

Iran Wants an Apology Too!

January 28, 2009

Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has asked for an apology from the US because of “crimes” America has committed against them.  Of course, it’s both ridiculous and completely expected.  In fact, I expect the Obama Administration to be conciliatory toward the Iranian regime which is nonetheless running a proxy-war in Gaza, Lebanon, as well as killing US troops in Iraq. All that [...]

Thus Begins the Era of Capitulation and Appeasement

January 28, 2009

We are entering a new era in American history, that of capitulation and appeasement.  President Barack Obama, in an effort to ensure that the world loves us, is giving in to dictators and thugs.  Because America is not supposed to “start by dictating,” Obama wants the world to know that the Freedom movement is dead, [...]

More Dissension Over Stimulus

January 28, 2009

The case against the stimulus keeps growing and growing.  Dan Mitchell (who created the popular YouTube video debunking Keynesian economics) of the Cato institute has recently produced a YouTube video on the effects of the Obama Stimulus Package, and how it is a disaster in the making (H/T:  Up North Mommy).

Yes She Can: Palin Launches SarahPAC

January 28, 2009

Sarah Palin showed that she wants to be something more than a two-term Governor of Alaska by launching her Political Action Committee, SarahPAC.   Creating this PAC was an essential first step for Palin to distinguish her worldview from John McCain’s, maintain her visibility, and build an organization that will help her compete on the [...]

Dems Launch Petition Against Rush

The Democrats via the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DSCC) have foolishly launched an online petition drive against Rush Limbaugh, asking readers to email in their outrage to Rush over his comments that he doesn’t want the President to succeed.  Rush’s reaction, via his website: I am greatly puzzled.

Feeling a Lot Like 9/10 Out There

January 27, 2009

In Barry’s First Seven Days we’ve already lurched backwards, perhaps dangerously. First, we fold over the issue of Gitmo in the face of evidence regarding the fate of some of the released detainees, making appear America less safe.  Then, Barry goes over to al Arabiya TV and gives his first post-Inaugural interview with them –  not [...]

Barack Obama is looking for Republican Cover regarding his stimulus package, by meeting with Republicans today on Capital Hill.  He is hoping to convince them to support his $850+ billion stimulus package, thinking that he would placate them by removing the contraception-funding provisions.  What he forgets is that the contraceptive funding is only one example [...]

Peace Through Naivety?

January 26, 2009

Barack Obama has come out with yet another asinine proposal in his first week as President.  This time, the White House is proposing a “worldwide” ban on the use of weapons in space.  While sounding utopian on paper, Obama’s proposal ignores the fact that our world contains countries that would love nothing more than to [...]

The Obama-Limbaugh Bi-Partisan Stimulus Act of 2009

January 26, 2009

Rush Limbaugh, in an effort to display what bi-partisanship really means, has decided to propose a bi-partisan solution to the current stimulus debate: So let’s look at how the vote came out, shall we?  Fifty-three percent of voters in this country — we’ll say, for the sake of this proposal, 53% of Americans — voted [...]

Bloomberg’s Thin Skin on Kennedy

January 26, 2009

New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg has always been a liberal, occasionally piggy-backing on others during his climb to power (read: Rudy Giuliani).  That being said, Mayor Mike’s thin skin (or utter reluctance to criticize the Kennedy Klan) came out when he described the press’ treatment of CAROLINE KENNEDY as “reprehensible” and ”totally inappropriate” in regards to [...]

The Road To Nationalization

January 26, 2009

The effort is underway by the Obama administration to begin the wide-scale nationalization of American private enterprise.  This nationalization will be far-reaching and touch several key industries, making it difficult to undo by future administrations.  Early indications suggest that this nationalization will touch three key industries:  Health-Care, Financial, and Automobile.

First Speedbumps for Obama

January 26, 2009

I always enjoy reading the U.K. papers in relation to events taking place in the U.S., because they put a perspective on things that we don’t get from our own media, despite having their own set of biases.  Today’s U.K. Telegraph paints a picture of an Obama administration slightly shell-shocked by the resistance thet they [...]

Barack Obama The Anti-Lincoln

January 25, 2009

The left’s comparisons between Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln have been nonstop since before Obama was even inaugurated. Less than a week after taking office, Obama has proved that not only is such a comparison absurd on its face, but that he is an anti-Lincoln.  During last Friday’s unpopular news dump hour, Obama issued an [...]
