McConnell Gives Conservatives The Middle Finger: Proves He Is Obama’s Mitch

  Hat/Tip to George Rasley at ConservativeHQ. Sticking to the time honored tradition of campaigning as a true-blue Conservative and then acting like a frickin’ RINO when you get back in DC, Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell did us all proud by going back on his campaign promises, and electing to vote to confirm a nominee for Attorney General that backed Obama’s Illegal Executive Amnesty; which is something that Loretta Lynch has testified that she had no problem with. *sigh* Yesterday’s Senate vote on the confirmation of Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s nominee to succeed Attorney General Eric Holder, was a […]

Killing Them With Kindness: Gov. Perry Expertly Handles Repetitive, Hostile Questions By Audience Member

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Even though it’s still early in this campaign season, we’re already beginning to see a different Gov. Rick Perry than we did in the 2012 race. He’s more calm, confident and assuring. Check out how he handles a series of hostile questions by a woman in the audience. Hillary Clinton, of course, has no qualms getting a boatload of foreign government donations with the Clinton Foundation. But she’s hiding out from hostile questions on her ‘listening tour’… . . .

Is There A Universe Where The GOP “Leaders” Aren’t Morons? I Want To Live In That One

    Once upon a time I naively thought that electing a Republican congress would put the brakes on Obama’s lawless destruction of our once-great nation. Silly me. Why did these bozos just vote to confirm Loretta Lynch as Attorney General? Do they want more gun control? Do they like seeing unlimited late-term abortions? Do they enjoy it when “law enforcement” seizes private property without due process? I suppose that they do. Which makes Mitch McConnell no better than Dingy Harry. Need more proof of that? OK, Ole Mitch is gonna bail out ObamaCare’s subsidies if SCOTUS strikes them down. […]

18 Insane Predictions From The Very First Earth Day In 1970

Hat/Tip to Mark J. Perry at the American Enterprise Institute. The sky is falling!!! That is probably the only thing that the Climate Catastrophe Freaks didn’t say back on the first Earth Day ever. And co-incidentally here is a list of 18 of the craziest predictions that were made on that inaugural Earth Day, in 1970. Well, it’s now the 45th anniversary of  Earth Day, and a good time to ask the question again that Bailey asked 15 years ago: How accurate were the predictions made around the time of the first Earth Day in 1970? The answer: “The prophets of doom […]

Forget About Oil For Food Or Even Cash For Clunkers, The Clintons Got Cash For Nukes: A Timeline Of Crime

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and The Great One, Mark Levin. The Clintons orchestrate so many deals that they make Donald Trump look like an amateur. Of course his deals are legal, they don’t feel the need to be bothered by that tiny aspect when they plot their schemes. Colin Campbell and Pamela Engel offer an insightful summary of the Clinton Crime Family’s latest scandal. Yeah, I know, it’s hard to keep ‘em all straight. I mean the latest one, where Hillary’s State Department approved the sale of nuclear weapons material to Russia (and therefore likely Iran) after the Clintons received […]

Ted Cruz Sets His Own ‘Red Line In The Sand': Congress Must Approve Any Iran Deal

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Once again, Ted Cruz displays the type of leadership that is sorely lacking in the Oval Office right now. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pennsylvania, have filed an amendment (#1152) to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, which would require affirmative Congressional approval of any Iranian nuclear deal before sanctions relief can occur. “The Constitution makes clear that Congress must approve international agreements like the one President Obama is negotiating with Iran,” said Sen. Cruz. “A nuclear Iran is the single greatest threat to our national security and […]

Raw Video: Taxpayer Goes Off Because Firefighters Have To Eat

Hat/Tip to Anna Olson. It seems that some people will go out of their way to find something complain about. And such is the case with this angry ‘taxpayer’ who evidently doesn’t want the firefighters in his town to eat. Or at the very least, he is upset about WHERE they purchase their groceries. Okay, where do I begin? They have to purchase groceries to stock the station. If they were to try and buy groceries on their time off, I am almost certain there are rules against that, in other words, they’d have to be paid to perform any […]

Modern Day Doctor Frankenstein Plans To Transplant Human Head To Donor Body

  Hat/Tip to Andrew Griffin at The Independent. Nope, it’s not a story from The Onion, in fact the doctor behind this theory can be heard in his TED talk in the video below. Surgeon Sergio Canavero has vowed to go to China is he is banned from doing it everywhere else, arguing that the transplant has ‘political meaning’ — and some on the internet claim it might all be a marketing stunt. The Italian doctor who has claimed that he could transplant a man’s head onto a donor’s body has said that he could do much of the procedure […]

Democratic Presidential Hopeful Courts Hollywood: And It’s A Man Baby!

  Hat/Tip to Tina Daunt at The Hollywood Reporter. Yep, it’s kind of a foregone conclusion that if you’re a Democrat running for POTUS, then you HAVE to woo the Hollywood Libs. *yuck* You can’t be a serious Democratic presidential hopeful these days without a fundraising base in Hollywood, which is why former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is back in town this week to meet with a loyal cadre of industry admirers. O’Malley on Wednesday afternoon made a visit to Sony Studios, where he has longstanding relationships with a number of top executives. On Thursday evening, he’ll attend a high-wattage meet-and-greet […]

Russian Nuclear Energy To Conquer The World, Thanks To Obama And The Clintons

Hat/Tip to Jo Becker and Mike McIntire at The New York Times. It’s bad enough when your elected officials go back on their campaign promises. Hell you might even cut them some slack when they explain how “it’s an election year, and gee whiz, they sure are vulnerable, but don’t worry, after the election, I’ll keep those promises.” Yeahhh, right. But this is something completely different and tenfold worse. This is a sitting President, a sitting Secretary of State and a former President conspiring to not only line their pockets, but also to sell America down the river. The headline on […]

The Environmental Insane Asylum

Guest Post By Alan Caruba Earth Day was declared in 1970 and for the past 45 years we have all been living in the Environmental Insane Asylum, being told over and over again to believe things that are the equivalent of Green hallucinations. Now the entire month of April has been declared Earth Month, but in truth not a day goes by when we are not assailed with the bold-faced lies that comprise environmentalism. Around the globe, the worst part of this is that we are being victimized by people we are told to respect from the President of the […]

Transparency – Schmancparency: The White House Press Corp Is Sick Of Obama

  Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. But he did actually say that…….once…..long ago…. So how’s that “Hope and Change” workin’ out for you? I didn’t think so, and the even the White House Press Corp isn’t buying it, either. For far too long, the “most transparent administration ever” has kept the press at arm’s length, refusing to allow access to President Barack Obama and feeding the media select morsels to appease their appetite. All of that may be coming to an end soon, or at least to a head, now that the White House Correspondent’s Association has grown tired of playing […]

100 Years Of The Income Tax At A Glance

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Courtesy of Americans for Tax Reform comes this visceral evidence of government’s endless growth; in good times and bad it grows. It never shrinks. Like a bad rash. Or a tumor.   Which reminds me of the question that Democrats have refused to answer for well over 100 years: how do we know when the government has done growing? What is their endgame? When will we know their massive government has reached its Utopian completion? Cue the crickets. . . .

Raw Video: Welfare Queen On Steroids, “Who’s Gonna Pay My Rent?!”

Hat/Tip to BuzzPo. Wow, and we thought that there were “Escalade-driving, Bling-wearing, pay for my New York Strip Steak with my Foodstamps” welfare queens here in America. But get a load of this Aussie throwin’ her fit down-under. The welfare system has completely run amok, and not just in America, folks. In fact, there are several other countries, like Great Britain and Australia, whose welfare programs are arguably even worse than our own. In this alarming video, an international welfare queen loses her nut after getting denied benefits. Luckily, there was a reporter just outside the welfare building when the […]

Families Of Sandy Hook Distance Themselves From The Fourth Dixie Chick’s (Tim McGraw’s) Fundraiser

  Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com and AWR Hawkins at Breitbart. Despite the fact that Sandy Hook Promise has among its goals the repeal of all concealed carry laws, and reducing all magazines to 10 rounds or less, Tim (Fourth Dixie Chick) McGraw is still going ahead with his Gun Control Benefit Concert. On MSNBC he said about the concert, “I lead with my heart” in explaining why he was doing the show. In other words, he’s just trying to help and he doesn’t want to be held responsible for what Sandy Hook Promise does with the tens of thousands he will raise […]

Complete Vs Finished

  No dictionary has ever been able to satisfactorily define the difference between “complete” and “finished.” However, during a recent linguistic conference, held in London, and attended by some of the best linguists in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese linguist, was the presenter when he was asked to make that very distinction. The question put to him by a colleague in the audience was this: “Some say there is no difference between complete and finished. Please explain the difference in a way that is easy to understand.” Mr. Balgobins response: “When you marry the right woman, you are complete. If you marry the wrong woman, you are finished. And, […]

Ghosts of “Earth Day” Past

  On this, Earth Day 2015, lets take a look back at some quotes from the very first Earth Day, in 1970.  After you’ve read even a few of these quotes, please ask yourself how we can believe anything that these same people, who now call for man-caused global warming, are saying. “We have about five more years at the outside to do something.”• Kenneth Watt, ecologist “It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.”• Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”• […]

Obama Regime Admits To Releasing Known Gang Member Who Went On To Murder 4 Americans

  Hat/Tip to Weasel Zippers. What was it Obama said about his Illegal Executive Amnesty? Oh yeah! He said that his administration was going to deport “Felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mom who’s working hard to provide for her kids.” I’m guessing that this guy must resemble someone’s mom, so they let him go. The Obama administration is admitting it granted executive amnesty protections to a known gang member — one charged with four counts of murder — and is now reviewing prior approvals to double check that other gang members have not also been approved […]
