We’re Axis of Right. And We DO NOT APPROVE That Message

April 30, 2010

I took a quick look at Axis of Right today and discovered that we had a randomly-generated ad for Charlie Crist on the left-hand (appropriate) side of the page.  Just to avoid confusion, I would like to make it clear that we here at Axis of Right do not approve that message.  Just as we [...]

When You Think of Women’s Rights, You Think of… Iran?

April 29, 2010

No, this isn’t a joke:  Iran has been appointed to the United Nation’s Commission on Women’s Rights.  Yup, the people who do this: No wonder she’s being buried alive, look at all the skin that’s showing!  I mean if you can see a woman’s mouth what’s next?  You do the math — pretty soon she’ll [...]

Pro-Choice Movement Tries to Hide That Which They Defend

April 29, 2010

When you want to know how effective a conservative argument is, look no further than liberals’ reaction to it.  When the liberal response is to try to stop the conservative argument from being made, then the argument is obviously a winner and should be repeated.  The most well-known example of this dynamic is the Democrat [...]

Charlie Crist (I)

April 28, 2010

Many saw this coming, but regardless Florida’s Republican Governor Charlie Crist is likely to decide tomorrow in a press conference scheduled for 5pm to run as an Independent in this year’s Florida Senate race.  Currently trailing Republican Marco Rubio by at least 30-points in the primary, Crist is apparently planning to jump ship, dump the [...]

Gordon Brown Labours to Stop Making an Ass of Himself

April 28, 2010

The British General election campaign kicked into high gear during my self-imposed blogging sabbatical during which I left everyone with the blogging of Sal and Ryan.  Awesome though they are, they’re just not as interested in British politics as I am so the blog suffered on that front.  Mea culpa.  So much happened in the [...]

Holder to Investigate Arizona Immigration Law

April 27, 2010

Amidst the cries of “racism,” “Nazi,” and “racial profiling” Attorney General Eric Holder has decided to investigate whether or not the new Arizona immigration law causing so much to-do is legal. Just to mess with our Liberal friends, Beck brought up an interesting point this evening:  part of the Arizona law indicates that if one [...]

The Great Ukrainian Egg Toss of 2010

April 27, 2010

Liberals often complain about the tone of political discourse here in America whenever the people turn against them, but if liberals want to see some ugly discourse, they should take a look at the Ukraine.  During a recent meeting of Ukrainian Parliament, opposition politicians disrupted a debate by throwing eggs and smoke bombs at government [...]

Media Addiction: Are You Hooked?

April 25, 2010

The University of Maryland recently completed a study called “24 Hours: Unplugged,” where they asked 200 students to go 24 hours without any kind of media whatsoever — no cellphones, no Blackberries, no texting, no IM-ing, no Internet in general, and no TV (as best as could be avoided).  Nothing.  So, in essence, these kids [...]

Arizona Gets Serious About the Border

April 24, 2010

Yesterday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed a piece of legislation which would give police more powers to fight illegal immigration in the embattled border state. Of course, there’s some controversy:  the law actually takes the uber-Draconian step of actually making it illegal to be in this country (ready for it) illegally!  Sweet Jesus, what have [...]

SEC Caught Overseeing Too Much

April 23, 2010

Imagine you could go to work, get through a simple firewall, and get to check out hard-core pornography on the people’s dime everyday.  If that’s you’re dream job, then the SEC is the place for you! This one is too easy. The SEC says these charges are a few years old, but isn’t that when [...]

ACORN’s Latest “Bowel Movement”

April 22, 2010

In case you were wondering, ACORN is still in the tank after the you-can’t-make-this-stuff-up pimp scandal last year, but their CEO Bertha Lewis is in the news once again.  This time she refers to the Tea Party Movement as a “bowel movement!”  Her audience was (no shock here) the Young Democratic Socialists.  Here’s the clip: [...]

Movie Review — Generation Zero

April 21, 2010

The good people at Citizens United put together a documentary which tries to explain how we got into this financial mess.  They called the film Generation Zero.  Back in February I wrote a preview based on what I knew at the time. Well, here is the promised review: I liked it (and so will you), [...]

Obama Heckled at Boxer Rally

April 20, 2010

Imagine if President Obama was giving a campaign speech on behalf of Senator Barbara Boxer and a few Tea Partiers heckled him on-and-off for about six minutes or so.  Big story, right?  Well, that didn’t really happen… a few pro-gay activists at the Boxer rally did that instead! Here it is:  I’m sure the media [...]

April 19, 2010

Episode #5 of Axis of Right Radio is now available. In this episode, Mike, Ryan, and Sal Obama’s new obsession with ridding the world (or at least the United States) of nukes and his neutering of America’s ability to defend itself; our new stance towards Israel, “balancing” our relationship with Israel against other interests; Gov.

Obama Administration: the Tea Party Should Love Me Too

April 19, 2010

Why not?  Right? We all love Obama, and the Tea Party should too!  Just ignore your principles. Apparently, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner had to let us all know on Meet the Press yesterday that Obama has done more to cut spending than Bush did (let’s just not consider the $787 billion stimulus slush fund and [...]

Gates: We Have No Long-Term Plan on Iran

April 18, 2010

Can’t say I’m really shocked.  A three-page memo from Defense Secretary Robert Gates indicates his frustration with the Obama Nation’s lack of a long-term strategy on dealing with Iran.  Of course the administration denies having no plan to deal with a potential nuclear Iran… I guess we’ll just wait and see;  the memo was from [...]

Exposing the “Crash the Tea Party” Guru

April 15, 2010

The “Crash the Tea Party” founder has had his own party crashed:  he’s Jason Levin (not sure if he’s related to Mark), an Oregon middle school teacher.  Figures.  He’s a media specialist who apparently hasn’t “heard of Google” as some have joked! So why is he in trouble?  As a teacher, myself, I know full [...]

Bernanke Warns of Debt Explosion

April 14, 2010

Or in the Fed Chairman’s words, a debt “Armageddon” is on the horizon if we’re not careful.  Speaking to Congress today Ben Bernanke made that prospect clear along with imploring Congress to not let the Bush tax cuts expire.  However, he was talking to a Democrat-controlled Congress so perhaps he should have just made it [...]

Obama’s Nuke Summit a Bust

April 13, 2010

Is it just me, or does Obama have a summit for everything?  He’s had a jobs summits, a womens’ summit, a health care summit, an economic summit, a global warming summit, a beer summit, and now a nuclear summit (I’m sure I missed a few.  If anyone remembers any others, let me know).  And, like [...]

Crashing Thursday’s Tea Parties

April 13, 2010

Apparently, there is this group of Libs out there planning to crash the Tea Party protests this Thursday in an effort to make the Tea Parties look silly (why do I have a hunch that this is going to backfire?).  This Breitbart story illustrates the depths to which these Tea Party crashers are willing to [...]

April 13, 2010

There have been many attacks on Pope Benedict as of late in regards to his alleged handling of clergy sexual abuse cases during his tenure as prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith.  Atheists around the world, intent on destroying the Church, are calling for his resignation, or in some quarters his [...]

Get Ready for Health Care Rationing!

April 13, 2010

Health care rationing is on its way.  Many of us predicted that it would come to pass as a result of ObamaCare, and it has been exhibited fully in ObamaCare lite, the socialized health care plan in my home state of Massachusetts.  Now, a new report shows that with the increase of people on health [...]

Awesome: Congress Accidentally Gutted Their Own Health Insurance

April 13, 2010

This is rich, and it shows what happens when 2,000+ page monstrosities are rammed through congress without anyone reading the bill.  It seems that due to a drafting error, Congress may have accidentally excluded themselves from the Federal Employees Health Program.  The idea was that members of Congress would purchase plans through the new insurance [...]

The Compliance Cost of the Tax Code

April 13, 2010

The income tax code is a huge drain on the American economy.  The amount of money spent on income taxes for wasteful programs, not to mention the economic cost of lost opportunity from money not being in the free market, is staggering.  Even the cost of actually preparing our tax returns and paying our taxes [...]

FDR’s Legacy 65 Years Later

April 12, 2010

Two critical things happened in American history today:  the first is that today marks the 149th anniversary of the Confederate attack on Fort Sumter, SC, which began the Civil War in 1861.  Seven states had already seceded and four others were about to go as well, leading to the largest trauma in our nation’s history.

The A-Team Returns!

April 11, 2010

Scouring the Internet today I discovered a brand new trailer for the film version of an old 1980s classic, The A-Team: Looks pretty fun.  While I have NOT been impressed with remakes lately, the A-Team never was a movie, just a show I used to watch with my brothers back in the day.  (A-Team 1, [...]

Wonderful! Here Comes Amnesty!

April 10, 2010

Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC), are introducing an amnesty bill in the Senate this week.  Graham, having decided that Republicans just need to embrace perpetual minority status, has decided to ignore the Democrats’ ramming through of ObamaCare, along with the rule of law.  Fortunately, I don’t think this bill has a chance [...]

Note to Self: Don’t Put Jokes Wishing for the Death of My Governor in Official Memos

April 10, 2010

I think the title says it all. In New Jersey, the Bergen County Education Association President Joseph Coppola passed this joke along in an official email to some 17,000 members: “Dear lord, this year you have taken away my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze, my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett, my favorite singer, Michael Jackson, and my [...]
