“Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive.” The Dems have simplicity and a bumper sticker. The truth is that Bin Laden is dead, but GM is the walking dead.  That second part takes more than a few words to explain. The editors of National Review do a very good explanation, here is part…

Payback time: Occupy, Anarchist groups return favors to Chicago Teachers Union

I’ve been documenting the presence of the Chicago Teachers Union at non-education-related, radical protests over the past year. From Occupy to Anarchist, gay pride, and anti-NATO protests, the union deploys its members not on the basis of “for the children” but rather for political solidarity. On the first day of the strike…

So is the panic over yet? It shoud be, because there never was a reason for panic to begin with.  Operation Demoralize went viral at the urging of the mainstream media, some Republicans and conservatives caught the fever, and for a weekend people lost their minds. Remember what got us here.  Has any…

Barnes has published her findings in great detail with documentary back-up at her blog Thoughts from…

Each day this week we will focus on one of the Upstate New York races included in Operation Counterweight.  As mentioned before, Upstate NY is critical to holding the House, as several seats were gained by Republicans in an otherwise blue state in 2010.  There also are good chances to flip…

From reader Michele: My daughter (the passenger) took this picture while we sat in traffic on our way taking her back to college. The picture was taken as we were sitting in traffic going over the Tappan Zee Bridge in NY, on our way to Fairfield, CT.

You probably know him as the star of the hit Discovery Channel series “Dirty Jobs,” a show which chronicled a day in the life of the “hardworking men and women, who earn an honest living doing the kinds of jobs that make civilized life possible for the rest of us.” Recently, however,…

My wife went to an extremely liberal high school, and for whatever her reason, is Facebook friends with many classmates who now are certified members of the Obama cult of personality. It is a never ending source of amazement how deeply these people, now in their 50s, are addicted to love of…

It’s November 7.  Barack Obama has won.  The Republican presidential strategy has failed.  The media is jubilant.  The right-blogosphere is going through a serious introspection.  The left-blogosphere is dancing on our graves and shoving it down our throats.  Four years of fighting the Obama agenda was for nothing. Oh, I’m sorry.  Let me…

This 30-minute video was produced in March 2012 by the Emergency Committee for Israel. Unlike 2016: Obama’s America, the video does not attempt to ascertain a cause, it just deals with the facts of how Obama has undermined Israel: Some of my related prior posts: Obama got Osama, but lost the Middle East (Not) Trusting…

You’ll go mad. Commenter K took this photo in Gainesville, FL, and writes: I don’t know what it is about the “It’s Working, You’re Welcome” sticker that gets under my skin more than most others but it has the effect of temporarily clouding my vision. The sheer arrogance, the CHUTZPAH of such…

I finally saw 2016: Obama’s America in Ithaca Saturday night. I can see how our friend judged it an Omg!  Had I not followed Obama so closely since 2008 and instead relied mainly on the mainstream media, almost everything in the film would have come as a shock. So I can’t myself respond…

There is a phenomenon in American politics which is not exclusive to either party, what sometimes is called the fallacy of the appeal to authority. On the political level it involves finding a heroic figure, and then wrapping him or her around an otherwise odious political message in order to insulate the message…
