"The fault Dear Brutus is not within our stars, but within ourselves that we are underlings."
I'm going to take a contrarian position today, both from one which my fellow conservatives are taking, and from the position that I myself would usually take. Here is my position, we should go for the Ryan/Murray deal, and we should go for it quietly. I know that most of you reading this will blast me for my heresy, and let me state for the record, I agree in advance with…Continue
From day one of the Obama regime, flitting about from crisis to crisis has been the new normal of American life. We started with worries about Swine Flu, which for reasons of political correct idiocy was subsequently renamed H1N1. That of course paled in comparison to the financial crisis, which was one of the main ingredients of Obama's election in the first place. The next…Continue
Demagogue: 1) a leader who makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain power
Barack Obama's election as our 44th President created a lot of panic on the right side of our national divide for many reasons, all of them valid. Worries ranged from the more practical concerns of his agenda being forced into action to the more esoteric variety, did this represent a fundamental shift in our national identity, vocalized by Al Sharpton's celebratory…Continue
I guess it's all in the first line of the article that I've linked to here, that for the first time in quite a while, the Conservative Movement was showing signs of life again. We were becoming more unified than we had been in roughly three decades, and all of it thanks to the realization of the Obama Agenda becoming a reality. This really is the one issue that can change our fortunes in this war, and help us to help put the nation on the right track.
All our House Speaker had to do…Continue
All links point to Twitchy, a wonderful Twitter aggregation site implemented by Michelle Malkin.
During that Administration that ran things in our country from 1977 until January 20, 1981, we got as gifts from the store of bad Marxist applications, the Department of Energy and the Department of Education. Two behemoth top down government bureaucracies designed to alleviate some perceived pain, which in fact were either caused by previous government intrusions or fabricated whole sale…Continue
Shortly after the Disastrous Election of 2008, I was speaking to a liberal friend, who conceded in a rare moment of honest reflection, that America had just elected a President who had the virtue of not being able to honestly put one single accomplishment on his resume. Our nation was less than 60 days away from being led by a man who previously in his life had run nothing so challenging as a lemonade stand. As astounding as that might seem, what came out of Patricia's mouth next was even…Continue
Remembering back to that ancient date of December of 2009, when Nancy Pelosi declared that Obamacare, or as it should be termed at least in the alternate, Zerocare, was the Democrats Christmas Gift to the nation, I distinctly remember almost every media outlet in the country running stories about how those of us who opposed this crap sandwich were officially not as well informed…Continue
I had something else planned for today, but then this happened over the weekend. Apparently, those multiple promises to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb, because it was what an overwhelming majority of Americans wanted during the previous two Presidential Elections, came with an expiration…Continue
Remembering back to the 1996 Democrat National Convention, Hillary Clinton, in an impassioned plea to defend the honor of her husband, a man with such obvious character and class, that when he had the 19 year old intern alone in his office, he penetrated her only with the tip of his expensive cigar and not with any actual part of his own anatomy. Hillary, in that shrill tone that only she and the mythical creature known as a banshee can achieve, alluded to something she labeled as, "The Mean…Continue
It really can not be avoided this year, as the number of candles on the cake equal that milestone known as 50. The thing about conspiracy theories is that they not only fall apart under the slightest scrutiny, being based on nothing more than a bizarre stringing together of handpicked disparate, "facts," but more often than not, some false assumptions are necessary and must be overlooked in…Continue
One of the things those of us on the right side of the aisle need to do in order to start winning elections is to reinforce the support we show our weaker spined politicians when they do something right. There are two reasons for this, which I'll discuss later. We need for them to embrace what they represent, and we need them to believe in the political profitability of acting in a positive…Continue
Let's face it, we all knew how this whole Obamacare disaster would turn out. At least, anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of basic economics not centered on a universe mostly populated by Unicorns and Fairies should have known how this would eventually turn out. My surprise came not with the failure, but with the absolute speed in which that ultimate failure was recognized. I believed and even predicted that it would take Americans a full three years to see the huge mistake that they'd…Continue
All Politics are decided by pop culture, and what's more to the point, this is nothing new. They always have been. That Barack Obama won two presidential elections based on winning the pop culture should surprise no one. Our side was busy making cogent arguments based on facts, and their side came up with the coolest graphic icons, the catchiest slogans, the easier to remember platitudinous…Continue
Here we are, at the middle of the beginning of the great and necessary Republican Civil War, and already, the buzzards are circling above, ready to swoop away the carcasses of the losers and form that ever elusive third party that seems so intent, albeit completely incapable of forming. (Libertarians, while I agree with much of what you say, you have certain principles that I just can not…Continue
I have promised myself that November would be a month of positivism, with every post dealing with the subject of how we put conservatism back into the driver's seat in this country. Today's essay is meant to be considered in that vein, and please take it as such.
Today's essay is a difficult journey for me, partly because I know, even before I start, that I'll manage to anger pretty much everybody at some point. There are three distinct groups who will be mad…Continue
This is the Hillary documentary that the Clintons had nixed in 2008. Just as Hillary geared up for a run in 2016, Three major networks announced Hillary fluff projects designed to tell us all just how lucky we are to have the Clintons around, willing to help organize our society for us. My guess is that none of the material covered in this documentary would or will find its way into those documentaries. Enjoy!…Continue
There are many on the right side of things who are convinced that those who advocate for limited government and fiscal responsibility will never again win a national election. All it took to reach such a state of despair was to lose one election in 2008, and then fail at the often times difficult task of removing an incumbent President. They forget the absolute shellacking the political left…Continue
Originally, I had planned for today to be part five of Republican Stupidity, a brief discussion as to how the party apparatchiks constantly fall for the Main Stream Media's version of the, "got your nose trick." That is to say, holding fast to the almost fantasy driven hope that they'll be treated fairly by a press corps with no political agenda of their own, and still claiming that elusive…Continue
We on the right side of the aisle lately have proven ourselves adept at…Continue
