Conservatives Snatching Defeat From the Jaws of Victory

When I was a kid, there was a very simply rule of conduct, people in polite society did NOT talk about politics, religion, sex, or money in public.

In fact, unless you lived in the proverbial “one horse town,” your neighbors probably wouldn’t have any idea what church you attended.

A man’s vote or support for a candidate was a private matter and people who wore support pins did so only at political rallies.

That old saying, “No one knows what goes on behind closed doors,” was both a warning to mind your own business about my private life and a pledge that I won’t get involved in your private life.

Your salary, how much money you had in the bank (or under your mattress), and how much you spent or saved was simply private and personal information and most people had no idea how a person lived their financial life until the reading of the will.

Today, Republicans claim to adhere to the values that made America great. Yet, second only to blaming liberals and Obama for the destruction of America, conservatives do their darnedest to play the self defeating game of exclusionist politics all based on rejecting those basic rules of polite society Read more

The Conservative Mandate

I’d like to think that this election was a referendum against passing bills before we find out what’s in them.

Okay, okay, we still have to deal with Barney Frank; chalk it up to America’s need for comic relief.

Am I excited that Jon Runyan is one of New Jersey’s newest Congressmen?  What good Eagles fan wouldn’t be?  But we need to remember that this midterm election wasn’t a game.  This is as much of a mandate for conservative voters as it is for conservative politicians.  2012 is only two short years away and there is still a lot of work to do.

Reid’s former Press Secretary Situation Screams Another Threat To Our Nation

Political offices have their own personalities, usually reflecting either the leadership or the party involved.  However, there is an unspoken rule and understanding that whatever you do or have done can and will affect your political boss.  In turn, the political leader has a consistent requirement to know pretty much everything about you and the people you commiserate with.  Factors of the relationship such as a romantic involvement, professional partnership or more importantly, marriage give the information a higher ranking.  Recently, information regarding Nevada legislator and party leader’s supposed lack of knowledge about an employee’s personal background reveals not only a risk to him, but also the nation.

Bassam Mahmoud Tarhini was not only an illegal alien who coerced now former Press Secretary and Immigration Reform Spokesperson Diana Tejada into marriage to stay in the United States, he was also a person of interest via the Oklahoma City Joint Terror Task Force. Thankfully deported recently, the reality to this aspect is not how it will hurt his campaign but how it challenges factors within legislative offices and how safe they are to handle the information given.

Ignorance of Dems is Now Going Too Far

            Ignorance. It is a factor of the liberal leadership and has been pretty much accepted by aspects of society such as the media.  However, Massachusetts Representative Tierney has given another definition to the word as he consistently states he did not know anything regarding his own wife’s involvement in her brother’s illegal business.

Media: Charachter only Matters if you are Republican

“He jumped out of his chair and grabbed her about the neck as he slammed her into the refrigerator. He then grabbed her about both arms, shaking her as they both went over to the kitchen counter, which Mrs. Wilson struck with enough force to take the breath out of her. She then fell to the floor, hitting the bottom door to the sink. As she laid there stunned, she couldn’t move her head or pick up her arm.”

What the GOP Pledge Reflects and Why We Need To Stand By It

            When the Pledge to America was first announced, it immediately met backlash from the other side of the aisle. President Obama began a tour dedicated specifically to breaking down the plan’s items one by one.  While to many political strategists, this response may be seen as politics as usual, there are many holes in the argument that show his plans and the plans of his liberal followers may be sinking their own ship.

Obama’s FCC Pushes its Unauthorized Internet Agenda

By Seton Motley
John Eggerton of Broadcasting & Cable reported:

The Federal Communications Commission-FCC is issuing a public notice to “improve the FCC’s understanding of business broadband needs,” calling it the “next step” advancing the FCC’s small business broadband agenda.   Only one problem with this FCC assertion.  They’re not supposed to have a small business broadband agenda.  Or a broadband agenda.  Or any sort of Internet agenda at all.  The FCC only has authority over that which Congress writes laws giving it authority.  And, as repeatedly pointed out, Congress has never given the FCC authority over the Internet.  

299 members of Congress, from both Parties, more than 150 organizations, state legislators and bloggers, seventeen minority groups, and a unanimous Washington, D.C. Circuit Court – led by a Democrat-appointee, all have said the very same thing.  Even Massachusetts Democrat Senator John Kerry was once upon a flip-flop saying it too.

So why is the FCC launching yet another public notice exploration into unauthorized territory?

A Glenn Beck Rally and Our Current Culture of Bias

It is not news to hear that we are in an environment of bias which is fueled by our mainstream media. It is not even news when we hear that people who speak truth are pushed down by this sector. However, a recent situation has forced us to not only see the strength of this realization but also the danger. Can a Glenn Beck rally  turn the tide?

With Kagan’s Nomination, We Get A Lifetime Obama

      The bottom line, however you want to look at it, to Obama’s selection for Supreme Court is the choice’s reasoning is for his power only.  Not only is Kagan not a correct choice for the nation but for the court as well; especially in this time of war and fiscal challenge.

      No matter who it is, everyone you will speak to about Kagan has their own ideas of her but the one thing that stands out within everyone’s response is clear: “No experience in the judicial chambers.” Although many follow that up with other previous members of the Supreme Court and their glowing background as justices, it is not just the experience but what comes along with it that we should be just as concerned with.  It is the timing of her arrival.

No Longer A Rumor: Obama Wants Amnesty

        The people who watch politics closely expected it, the ones who didn’t assumed it and now we know it. Through an internal U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service memo, the Obama Administration blatantly confirmed amnesty is their number one objective regarding illegal immigration.  Actually calling removal of persons who are not in the United States legally a “threat”, this is not only proof of a Capitol Hill rumor that was just in the past few month showing teeth, but another spit mark on the Constitution made by our current leader.

                While the Constitution is vague when discussing the ability and standards of Executive orders, it does show that it is within the limits of the leader that the actions should stand.  Nonetheless, through an Executive Order Obama plans to replace actual and real reform regarding Immigration with aspects that equal amnesty for illegal aliens; The same document Obama used to lure upcoming former legislator Bart Stupak which turned out to be less worth the ink used to write it, the document in question discusses it will include steps such as a “deferred action” to allow illegal aliens to stay in the country, legally as well as extending the “grace period”… Read more
