RNC Speeches Day 2: Rice and Ryan Rock the Hall

August 30, 2012

After many solid speeches throughout Day 1 of the convention, I was interested to see if the message would shift on Day 2.  It did.  Yesterday the was time to take it directly to Obama (finally).  The specific criticism missing from Chris Christie’s speech was on full display in prime time last night! The warm-up [...]

Feminist Malaise at the DNC (and Outside the RNC!)

August 27, 2012

Unless you are a child with “credentials,” you are not to be allowed on the Democratic National Convention floor, even if all you are doing is being breastfed.  I thought that hippie/granola public breastfeeding thing would be cool with the free-spirited Lib elite, but alas no. Oddly, some feminazis are upset by this, citing the [...]

Ridiculous Anti-Allen West Ad

August 10, 2012

Although it’s only August, there’s a Democrat super PAC ad airing against Florida’s Allen West where he’s actually depicted punching old people, women, and black families!  With their progressive liberal agenda shown to be a complete failure, the left is completely losing it.  I’m sure there will be more ridiculousness to come as the days tick by [...]

Obama Super PAC Crosses a Line

August 7, 2012

“Priorities USA Action,” an Obama super PAC, produced this ad which clearly crosses a line: The gist:  Mitt Romney is somehow responsible for the death of this man’s wife. Is the left already going there?  I figured they eventually would, but this is backbench, desperation-type stuff in early August.  On top of it all, the [...]

Do We Really Need a “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day?”

August 1, 2012

In response to the outcry over Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s remarks regarding gay marriage, Mike Huckabee decided to dub today August 1, “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day.”  He didn’t ask for signs or marches, just for making a stand for free speech through supporting this restaurant chain.  The outpouring of support was huge in most locations.  Anecdotally, [...]

Mayor Menino’s Chick-Fil-A Hypocrisy

July 29, 2012

Mark Steyn pointed out a glaring inconsistency with Boston Mayor Menino’s position on groups supporting gay marriage in his town. Stepping back for a moment, remember that Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said, “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.  We are a family-owned business, a family-led [...]

PETA Informally Bets on Senator’s Death

July 27, 2012

Earlier this week, someone at the USDA decided to promote “Meatless Mondays,” pushing farm state Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa to tweet his disapproval of such a “stupid” move and that he’d be eating more meat to compensate! It was typical Obama Nation nonsense to even release this memo — it’s supposed to be the [...]

Movie Review — The Dark Knight Rises

July 20, 2012

The most anticipated movie of the summer, The Dark Knight Rises, officially came out today and I had to see it.  This movie already had some political, as well as online, controversy surrounding it.  That was, of course, even before last night’s shooting. Here’s the trailer: Four summers ago, after viewing The Dark Knight, I [...]

“New Party” Obama Revelations

June 7, 2012

Stanley Kurtz, writing for National Review Online, expanded upon a period in Obama’s past when Obama openly supported, and apparently joined and sought the endorsement of, the “New Party,” a European-type socialist-leaning ACORN-affiliated group.  The New Party was so outside the mainstream back in the 1990s, they had to work through the front-group “Progressive Chicago” [...]

Walker Wins: “This is What Democracy Looks Like”

June 6, 2012

Last night, the “too close to call” Wisconsin gubernatorial recall election ended up not being so close.  Here’s what happened: Governor Scott Walker’s recalled failed 53-46% — 7 points… the same margin as Obama-McCain.  Not a landslide, but definitely decisive. Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch also survived with a similar percentage: 53-47%. One of the four [...]

Wisconsin Democrats Whining about Voter Suppression

June 5, 2012

I seriously could have posted this story last night — frightened Dems are so predictable.  Which will it be:  voter fraud?  racism?  Diebold at it again?  Dick Cheney’s weather machine?  Ah, how about voter suppression! Some Wisconsin Dems are saying that pro-Walker factions are allegedly telling people who signed the recall petition that they can’t [...]

Outgoing Union Leader Bashes Haley Effigy

May 23, 2012

Another proud moment for the AFL-CIO in South Carolina — if you can’t beat ‘em, bash ‘em: I’m sure this was fun (or at least “union” fun) for the few people who were there, but it doesn’t do much to elevate the debate.  Just because Governor Haley plays “political hardball,” it doesn’t imply you bring [...]

Hunger Games Star: “Screw PETA”

April 11, 2012

Jennifer Lawrence, who played Katniss in The Hunger Games, was recently cited in Rolling Stone magazine as saying “screw PETA“. Why? Not for anything particular in The Hunger Games, but for the 2010 film Winter’s Bone where Lawrence’s character apparently skins a fake squirrel.  So, Lawrence called out the latent criticism how she saw it.

Greek Suicide Stokes Protests

April 5, 2012

It’s not just young people going to extremes in Greece as apparently a 77-year-old man shot himself due to the government’s austerity measures.  In a completely, totally, absolutely shocking development, there were protests on the streets of Athens: Suicide is a cowardly act.  On top of everything else, this man was an anti-austerity activist whose [...]

Occupy Wall Street Needs Cash

March 11, 2012

Occupy Wall Street has around three weeks left before they potentially run out of bail, kitchen, and medical money.  So, a sporadically violent group of otherwise privileged unemployed useful-idiot agitators is running out of cash?  I’m shocked! Perhaps there are a lessons in all of this:  when people live beyond their means, times get tough [...]

What to do About Bill Maher’s Million

March 6, 2012

Advertisers, feminists, lefty opportunists, MSM sycophants, and Rush-haters everywhere have been piling on the radio talk show host even after he apologized to Sandra Fluke for calling her a “slut” and a “prostitute” on his show.  Since there’s no sating their appetite for conservative blood, Rush should just move on.  Let someone else do the [...]

Obama Hearts Alinsky

March 5, 2012

Andrew Breitbart may be gone, but his legacy remains.  He spoke of vetting President Obama this year by releasing aspects of his past completely ignored by the MSM, if for nothing else, to complete the picture of who our President is in his core. In Part 1 of the vetting, Breitbart released a poster today [...]

Rush Buckles? Must be a Fluke

March 4, 2012

On his radio show Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh said this: What does it say about the college co-ed Susan [sic] Fluke who goes before a Congressional committee and says she must be paid to have sex?  What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be [...]

Breitbart has Some Fun at CPAC

February 11, 2012

Every February the CPAC convention meets to rally conservatives and make establishment Republicans either squirm or figure out who to pretend to support this cycle.  Outside (and inside) the CPAC convention in DC this year, the Occupy rubes showed up — some of whom are actually getting paid by labor unions to be there!  Astroturf, [...]

New Right-to-Work Law Pushes Unions to Threaten Super Bowl

February 2, 2012

Yesterday, Indiana became the twenty-third right-to-work state when Governor Mitch Daniels signed just such a bill into law.  Obviously, the unions hate this because “right-to-work” essentially means that you cannot be forced to join a union or pay union dues, though the union has to collectively bargain on your behalf. So, exhibiting predictable mob behavior [...]

Occupiers in RI Disrupt Pro-Life Rally

January 31, 2012

Last week, Rhode Island’s own Occupy rubes decided to infiltrate a Right to Life rally, shout down a priest leading a prayer, and allegedly dump condoms on a group of young female students. Nothing like a greasy, unemployed, statist useful-idiot mob to keep things classy around the Ocean State.  Also, nothing like a police force [...]

Obama at Recess

January 5, 2012

Much has been made about President Obama’s recess appointment of Richard Cordray and three members of the NLRB, because, well, Congress is not on recess.  A pro forma session is still being in session — it was a way that Harry Reid himself prevented Dubya from making recess appointments.  So, on the surface the President’s [...]

“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 [...]

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 [...]

Oakland’s Mayor Appeases Occupiers

October 28, 2011

The Occupy movement conjures up many images:  grungy libs, animus against police (including car poo), mass arrests, ACORN‘s murky involvement, and people demanding the property of others be given to them. When a full-fledged Occupier riot broke out in Oakland the other night the police came out and cleaned up the streets, dispersing the mob.  [...]

Obama the Occupier?

October 25, 2011

Here’s a link I found on Drudge today which indicates that President Community Organizer was active in 1998 Chicago acting very similar to today’s “Occupy” rubes.  Though filled with anecdote and few witnesses, such associations and experiences as a young adult may be why the Obama Nation seems all enthused and nostalgic when he talks [...]

Occupy Wall Street “Revolution” a Bit Premature

October 23, 2011

Here’s a rather dutifully skewed MarketWatch piece from Paul B. Farrell which paints the “Occupation” movement with tricornered hats and democracy in their hearts (seizing property from one group to give to people to whom that property does not belong may be “true democracy”, but the kind that ushers in chaos and dictatorships). The catalyst [...]

“Occupy L.A.” Hinting at the Need for Violence

October 12, 2011

Here’s a video of a speaker from the Occupy L.A. protests: (go to about 30 seconds) It didn’t take long for the movement’s classic m.o. to manifest in pure leftist fashion!  The left loves government.  Government is a blunt instrument of power, and by extension, coercion.  Of course, violence on some level would be necessary [...]

One Useful Idiot’s Moment at the “Occupy Wall Street” Protests

October 5, 2011

The person featured prominently in this video, the self-identified “Lotion Man”, pretty much embodies what the “Occupy Wall Street” crew is all about: Hmm… lets see.  He’s annoying, attention-loving (as many three-year-olds are), somewhat incoherent, emotional not rational, and an agitator.  Sounds pretty much just like an average young New York City lib with a [...]
