Huckabee 2012 Campaign Unlikely to Receive Clemency

November 30, 2009

When the story of the four police officers who were ambushed and murdered in a Washington state coffee shop broke yesterday, few could have imagined that the story would have a newsworthiness beyond the intrinsic horror of the event.  Today, we learned that the crime may have an impact on the 2012 Presidential election. It [...]

More Suspicious Climategate Revelations

November 30, 2009

So you want to change the planet’s behavior in regards to CO2 production?  You also want to tell us that man-made global warming will destroy us all one day soon unless we act right now this very instant.  You take your Nobel Prize and wag it in front of us saying that your science is [...]

Kerry’s Revenge on Afghanistan

November 29, 2009

John “F’in” Kerry* finally gets some revenge on the Bush Administration through a new report on how we missed our chance to get Bin Laden in December 2001 in the mountains around Tora Bora.  However, on page 9 of the 49 page file (pdf file) Kerry notes that his report’s thesis relies on the same [...]

More horror stories from the Obama Nation as three Navy SEALs on a special ops mission to seize wanted terrorist Ahmed Hashim Abed are facing court martial for beating up Abed a little before bringing him in.  The mission, code named “Operation Amber” was designed to capture and bring to justice the man who is [...]

From all of us here at AOR, we wish you a happy, food-and-family-filled Thanksgiving!  Enjoy the turkey, the sometimes crazy conversation, a few football games, and take some time to appreciate those things we should be thankful for in these difficult times… …before we blow all our money tomorrow on Black Friday Christmas deals!

Someone Finally Stood Up to Brian on Family Guy

November 23, 2009

This post is for conservative Family Guy fans. I used to love Brian the dog.  In the first few seasons, he was great comic relief:  Peter’s loyal side-kick, a wonderful foil for Stewie, a talking dog with a drinking problem — the possibilities were endless! So what did the writers of Family Guy do by [...]

Senate Votes to Debate Health Care Bill

November 22, 2009

The Senate voted yesterday 60-39 to begin debating Harry Reid’s 2,074 page flaming bag of crap he’s still calling Health Care Reform.  Every Democrat, Independent Joe Lieberman and Socialist Bernie Sanders voted to begin the debate.  No Republican voted for it, while Voinovich of Ohio didn’t vote at all (hence the “39″ instead of 40).

Another “Hack” at Global Warming

November 21, 2009

Hackers are not very nice people — all that firewall busting and information stealing.  It’s a nuisance for the Pentagon and for companies as well as an unwelcome invasion of privacy.  But sometimes they expose some interesting things, like recently when some hackers broke into a British climate research center and exposed that there was [...]

Archbishop of Canterbury Echoes Pope on Women in the Priesthood

November 20, 2009

Well, sort of. The Roman Catholic and Anglican churches have not reached an agreement on the issue of whether women can serve in the Priesthood. They agree on the effect the issue has on unity between the Catholic and Anglican churches. Today’s Times of London has an article portraying Sharia Law supporter and Archbishop of [...]

Student Protest Over Tuition Hike at UCLA

November 19, 2009

I love when Millennials protest at college!  Here’s the most famous (and my favorite) moment in Millennial protest history.  Please, tase him again. Well, here’s a group of college kids at UCLA reacting to a tuition hike in the only way they can — yell loudly, aggravate the cops into reacting, and whine about it [...]

Graham Eviscerates Holder

November 19, 2009

I do not count myself as a Lindsay Graham fan, but credit where credit is due.  In his questioning of Attorney General Eric Holder before the Judiciary committee yesterday, he asked such an obvious question to Holder yet rendered him speechless.  In this clip, Graham spells out exactly why Holder’s decision to try Khalid Sheikh [...]

Ireland Gets Screwed at World Cup Qualifier

November 18, 2009

You may not know much about soccer, but one thing I think we all know is that you’re not supposed to touch to ball with your hands, unless you’re the goalie. Here’s what happened to Ireland today in their qualifying match against France: Not cool… ou pas bon! (pardon my French)

Brother, Can You Spare Five Minutes?

November 18, 2009

One of the knocks against our President is that Obama only cares about Obama. As it turns out, we’ve been giving the One too much credit. On his recent trip to China, President Obama met his brother Mark way too many middle names Obama for the first time and was gracious enough to give the [...]

Limbaugh Interviews Palin on Policy

November 18, 2009

Sarah Palin, in the midst of her media tour for Going Rogue, appeared on the Rush Limbaugh radio program yesterday.  Rather than interviewing her exclusively about the book, Limbaugh asked her a number of questions about policy matters, from taxes and spending, to health care, to energy, to Afghanistan and Iran.  Palin’s answers were detailed, [...]

Steven Crowder’s Club Gitmo Vacation

November 17, 2009

Mainstream media outlets have exorbitant budgets and entire departments dedicated to research.  Yet somehow, a young conservative comedian manages to produce a twelve minute video that provides more actual information and context on the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay than the state-run media has produced in years of “reporting” on the facility.  Thankfully, Crowder is [...]

Dump Corzine… or Shift Him Around?

November 17, 2009

I just got an email from a fellow NJ conservative containing this article from the Hudson Reporter about how the freshly dissed NJ Democrat Party just can’t let go of Jon Corzine. Their scheme consists of asking octogenarian NJ Senator Frank Lautenberg to step aside while Corzine is still a lame duck in order to [...]

The Fabricated Obama Persona

November 16, 2009

The Obama campaign was heralded for its use of Twitter in the 2008 campaign cycle.  Many of his supporters followed his Tweets, feeling that it was a connection that they had to him.  Yet as with much of his persona during the 2008 Presidential campaign, Obama’s Twitter account was actually a scripted fabrication. While in [...]

The Washington Redskins Keep Their Name… For Now

November 16, 2009

The Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal from a 1992 case brought by Suzan Shown Harjo about the name of the Washington Redskins.  She and her fellows were upset that the team name and logo were offensive and wanted the franchise to change them.  While the lower courts have not made mention of [...]

Obama Urges Burma to Release Aung San Suu Kyi

November 15, 2009

During his recent trip to Singapore, President Obama urged the Prime Minister of Burma to release pro-democracy dissident Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest.  Given Obama’s warped sense of good and evil and his tendency throw his support behind some pretty shady characters, the request must have been a bit surprising for the Burmese.  [...]

The Obama Bow

November 15, 2009

It took 44 Presidents and 220 years since the office of the American Presidency was jump-started by George Washington on Wall Street in late April 1789 before a President thought so little of his office and country to give a full bow to a foreign leader.  We don’t bow to foreign leaders — it indicates [...]

KSM in Federal Court — We’re Officially Pre-9/11 Again

November 13, 2009

The Obama Nation continues to live up to its pitiful reputation as Attorney General Eric Holder announced in perfect Friday “document-dump” fashion that five terrorists, including 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will be tried in federal court in New York! This about as pre-9/11 as one can possibly get.  This is what the 9/11 Commission [...]

I Miss Bush

November 12, 2009

Today, former President George W. Bush gave a speech at Southern Methodist University, the future home of his Presidential Library and think-tank.  Here’s the clip from Fox News today covering the speech: Warning of the temptation to believe government is the solution to our problems, hearing Dubya’s voice with all the occasionally misspoken words, thinking [...]

Veterans Day 2009

November 11, 2009

Happy Veterans Day!  If you get the chance, please take an opportunity to thank a veteran or at least take a few moments to contemplate the impact our soldiers have had and continue to have on our history, culture, and society.  If it weren’t for our veterans and service members America wouldn’t be the freest [...]

Massachusetts Jobs Not so “Saved or Created”

November 11, 2009

A Boston Globe story came out today about how all those 12, 374 “saved or created” jobs in Massachusetts were a tad bit exaggerated.  The whole “saved or created” concept is ripe for manipulation since you can’t really accurately pin down a truly “saved” job.  I wasn’t fired this year; does that mean my job [...]

It’s not Snoweing in Maine

November 10, 2009

The move to rid the party of RINOs is continuing, and this time showing its face in Maine.  Sen. Olympia Snowe, recently giving her tacit support for ObamaCare and the Porkulus bill, is not popular among her party in the state.  Consider these stats, obtained in a recent PPP poll: A plurality of Republicans disapprove [...]

Commemorating a Historic Day, and Obama’s Lack of Respect For It

November 10, 2009

When President Reagan issued the challenge “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” on June 10, 1987, no one thought the Berlin Wall would fall anytime in the near future.  Yet just a day short of two years and five months later, the wall was torn down.  Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of the fall of [...]

The Catholic Bishop’s Complicity in Pushing ObamaCare

November 9, 2009

Every time I write a post that is critical of the Catholic Church, a part of me feels uneasy.  After all, I am a committed Catholic who believes in and follows the teachings of the Universal Church, and usually defer to the authority of the Bishops in most matters.  However, after serious consideration and reflection, [...]

November 5, 2009

Last night, the New York Yankees made history by defeating the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 6 of the World Series to capture their record 27th World Championship.  It is the Yankees’ first championship in nine years.  The significance of the Yankees’ victory cannot be overstated.  With their 27th championship, the Yankees have reaffirmed their place [...]
