All is not well with the Cain campaign these days.  With his poll numbers dropping and allegations of inappropriate behavior continuing to drip, Herman Cain has planned to have an “assessment” of his presidential campaign.

Politico: Gingrich Used Different Label Twelve Years Ago

November 29, 2011

The gossip website Politico is reporting  that Newt Gingrich once described himself as a Rockefeller Republican in a 1989 interview to the Ripon Society.  Apparently, the Romney campaign Politico sees this 1989 interview as a bombshell due to the fact Gingrich  labeled Mitt Romney as a Rockefeller Republican in 2011. What’s notable about the interview [...]

November 28, 2011

Many news organizations are reporting that Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank will not seek re-election in 2012.  The Globe is speculating that redistricting played a role in Frank’s decision, but we won’t know for sure until the Congressman holds a press conference at 1:00 p.m.  I don’t know what Frank is going to say, but I [...]

Super Committee, Epic Failure

November 21, 2011

The so-called “super committee” to deal with debt reduction admitted today that they are not going to make their artificial deadline to cut over $1 trillion from the budget over ten years. No surprise here.  This whole super committee concept was never intended to work, but to punt.  And after the punt is the fodder [...]

EU Dictates Going Amok: Water Doesn’t Prevent Dehydration

November 20, 2011

This top headline at the Drudge Report needs to be added to the echo chamber! After an exhaustive three-year study, European Union elites have decided that not only does water NOT by itself prevent dehydration, but that it will now be against the law to say it does on labels or in advertising bottled water [...]

“Occupy” Rhetoric to Haunt Dems

November 19, 2011

Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) used “occupy” rhetoric on Thursday to express her will that entitlements be taken off the table during the ill-fated Super Committee negotiations to deal with the deficit.  Tina Korbe, writing for Hot Air, did an excellent job exposing the many obvious problems with Mikulski’s argument. However, not only is Mikulski’s argument [...]

Happy Birthday to a Young Soldier

November 18, 2011

This is my niece (and goddaughter), who happens to be turning 18 today in boot camp down at Fort Jackson, holding her first M-16: Ain’t she awesome — choosing to serve our nation during these uncertain times!  I’m sure she’d be a bit embarrassed by this post, but since she doesn’t have computer access at [...]

$15,000,000,000,000 and Counting

November 16, 2011

Today, the US national debt cracked the $15 trillion mark with no real debt solutions on the table from Congress.  Debt-hawk Paul Ryan had a few things to say about this development in this video. Every time a milestone like this is reached we as a nation have fewer options available to deal with the [...]

SCOTUS to Rule on ObamaCare

November 14, 2011

The Supreme Court has decided to hear arguments relating to the constitutionality of ObamaCare’s individual mandate.  In other words:  does the federal government have the right to compel individuals to purchase a product or face a fine.  Also, the court will likely look at “severability” in the law, or whether or not if the individual [...]

Sarkozy, Obama Knock Netanyahu

November 8, 2011

At the ongoing G20 Summit, French President Sarkozy and our embarrassment, President Obama, were overheard on an open-mic picking on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: With friends like these, right?  Real mature, guys!  Why is it that our leaders still don’t understand that EVERYTHING in public is recorded nowadays?  Just ask Gordon Brown how these [...]

D-Day Prayer at WWII Memorial Stymied by Administration

November 6, 2011

I was greatly disappointed to learn years ago that the World War II Memorial would be the first major DC memorial absent any reference to God.  I believe that it speaks ill of our hyper-sensitive politically correct ruling-class culture;  even nowadays since God is also absent from MLK’s recently dedicated memorial. However, if there was [...]

Oakland Police and “Occupiers” Clash Again

November 3, 2011

Oakland Mayor Jean Quan set these events into motion by treating her city’s “Occupiers” with kid gloves after they rioted last week: Luckily, no one was killed, but a few protesters and police were injured.  Some protesters broke into buildings and began setting fires, so the police had no choice but to respond with tear [...]

Greece at a Crossroads

November 2, 2011

Greece has been in economic and social turmoil for nearly 18 months because of the crumbling of their welfare state.  Facing possible expulsion from the eurozone, Greece has a choice — accept the bailout and the severe austerity measures which come with it, or become an economic pariah. Yesterday, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou announced [...]
