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…

Operation Demoralize is working just as planned

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…

Saturday Night Card Game (John Lewis may have authority, but he’s also wrong)

Saturday Night Card Game (John Lewis may have authority, but he’s also wrong)

Posted by

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…

One of the biggest electoral scams in the country is being run by Jim Matheson in Utah-04 against Mia B. Love. As detailed here before, Matheson plays a Democratic moderate on TV, and strategically votes against his party on high profile votes when his vote doesn’t matter either because (as under Speaker…

Elizabeth Warren appeared yesterday on the Jim and Margery radio show in Boston. There were two significant points raised regarding the Cherokee controversy. First, Warren denied that the controversy and the demand even by Democratic Native Americans to meet with her is a problem for her campaign (at 0:25 of audio embedded below): Q.  ……

All the attention this week was focused on the removal of “God” and reference to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital from the DNC platform.  Those terms were reinserted based on the rused that two-thirds of delegates approved, when it was clear that there was not the-thirds support on the voice vote. But the…

From reader J: Here’s a pic of a car in Charlottesville, VA, of an OFFICIAL NAVY car with a bumper sticker showing our illustrious leader punching out “zombies.” Are we to infer that these “zombies” are anyone who dares to disagree with him? Whatever happened to “Dissent is patriotic”? Update:  Reader J responds to comments,  I…

Clint Eastwood gave his first post-convention interview today explaining how he came to address the “empty chair” and just what he thinks of the reaction. Speaking with The Carmel Pine Cone, a local California paper, Eastwood said that “President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” and explained that it…

When did Jennifer Granholm acquire a Southern accent?

Posted by

What is it with the Dems? Whenever they want to feel real, they put on fake accents, particularly stereotypical black southern accents. Hillary did it in 2008 and Joe “Chains” Biden did it recently. Do you detect a slight southern twang in Jennifer Granholm’s imitation of Howard Dean, as I do? …

Another one of those anomolies which makes the unemployment rate look better than it is.  The rate as calculated drops when people drop out of the work force because they no longer are counted as unemployed. So while the media and Obama campaign probably will try to spin the drop as a…
