Cassidy Defeats Landrieu To Extend GOP Control Of Senate

Hat/Tip to Todd Beamon at Newsmax.  The GOP just extended their majority in the Senate by one more seat, insuring that 54 Republican Senators will rule the “World’s Most Deliberative Body” beginning in 2015. In the last race of the 2014 election cycle, Rep. Bill Cassidy easily trounced incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu on Saturday in a heated Louisiana runoff race that expanded Republican control of the Senate in January and made the longtime dominance of the Democratic Party in the south a distant memory. “God Bless America,” Cassidy told cheering supporters at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Baton Rouge. “We […]

democrats Use Federal Employees to Campaign for Obama

Since rules do not apply to democrats, and only you, it should not be a surprise that democrats use the federal bueacracy to promote the re-election of president Obama.  The Right Scoop has more… WASHINGTON TIMES – In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s customer help line urged taxpayers “to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,” the Office of Special Counsel said in a statement. OSC said it is seeking “significant disciplinary action” against that employee. Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension […]

‘This is what democracy looks like,’ Kenosha Education Association Decertifies

If you ever wondered why unions force people to join, here is an example of what happens when people are allowed to vote in order to leave.  An exclusive by Mark Belling: I have learned the third largest teachers union in the state, the Kenosha Education Association, has been decertified. Only 37 percent of the teachers in the Kenosha Unified School District voted to reauthorize the union in a recent vote…Under Act 10, public employee unions must be recertified every year by an affirmative vote of at least 50 percent of the employees.  Read it all at the Conservative badger.

New Publication Shows Illegals How to Get ObamaPhones

Remember the humble ObamaPhone?  You know, the item that got handed out by the millions last year…in battleground states…just before the election?  Yeah, those ObamaPhones. The ObamaPhone even had it’s own music video… Well, who is to say that illegal immigrants should be left out of the gravy train?  In fact, the new guide for illegal immigrants doesn’t hide their love of the program, or their love of the man who, while he may not have originated the idea, has exponentially expanded it into a multi-billion dollar welfare program. The book’s dedication reads (h/t Dan): This book is dedicated to […]

Ashley Judd Abandons 2014 Senate Race: Conservative Blogosphere Sad

It seems that whatever dark forces Ashley Judd worships have advised her to not seek out a Kentucky Senate seat.  Stacey McCain has more… No more Puffy Face to mock? No months of endless lunacy as she compares everything to rape? Alas, we have been robbed: A source close to Judd said that Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes’ interest in potential race made the decision not to run easier. “The timing just wasn’t right,” said the source. … Democratic Senate strategists have argued that Judd would be a good, if unconventional candidate, pointing to her ability to rival or […]

Political Zombie, Mark Sandford, Back From the Grave and Winning?

Perhaps I’m coining a new phrase, “political Zombie.” Political Zombie: Noun; A politician whose dead career has come back to life, but is really still dead. Mark Sanford is a political zombie.  His political career died in 2009, by his own hands, when he spent Father’s Day weekend walking the Appalachian Trail.  However, he somehow confused “walking the Appalachian Trail” with, “visiting my super-secret Argentinian girlfriend.”  I suppose it was a mistake that anyone could make.  After all, most devoted family men have super-secret Argentinian girlfriends, right? Understandably, the voting public didn’t accept the glaring difference in hiking and, well…you […]

Detroit Demands Payback From Obama, In the Form of a Bailout

If you want to see sense of entitlement, or the mindset that demands something for nothing.  Take a look at the following, as a City Council member from Detroit gives a great exhibition of both… Fox 2 News Headlines The city of Detroit faces a major financial crisis and one member of city council thinks President Barack Obama should step in and help. City Council member JoAnn Watson said Tuesday the citizens support of Obama in last month’s election was enough reason for the president to bailout the struggling the city. (Click the video player to listen) “Our people in […]

What Does The Future Hold For Us? What Is The Real Problem? Who Is The Real Enemy? What Is Their Objective?

[Folks, forgive me if I ramble today. But, that is the mind-set I am in.] No one can see into the future. That is a given. And yet, it is absolutely necessary to be concerned about our future and, therefore, try as best we can to anticipate what is coming. To do otherwise would be to stick our collective heads in the sand. There is really only two things we meer mortals can in trying to project into the future. One is to be observant about what has happened, what is happening, and what is likely to happen (looking at […]

AFL-CIO Threatens Voters? “Your Voting Record is a Matter of Public Record”

In a rather interesting mailer sent to Oregon Residents, the ALF-CIO seems to indicate that they know how people voted in previous elections.  Union Label has more… A mailer sent to Oregon voters by the AFL-CIO warns that their voting history is a matter of public record, reported Wednesday. “Your voting history is a matter of public record,” the mailer declares, implying that the union can determine how people vote. “The reverse cover of the pamphlet features an historic photograph of a union strike, in which the worker in front is carrying a poster that reads: ‘DO NOT CROSS […]

Romney Recommends the Small Business Owners Warn Employees of Obama Second Term: Liberals Upset

What happens when Mitt Romney recommends that business owners talk to their employees about the consequences of a second Obama term?  Upset liberals! Here is the “leaked” video… And, here is commentary from Working in These Times… In the June call, Romney went on to reassure his audience that it is perfectly legal for them to talk to their employees about how to vote: Nothing illegal about you talking to your employees about what you believe is best for the business, because I think that will figure into their election decision, their voting decision and of course doing that with your family and […]

Obama to Illegally Delay Upcoming Layoffs, Promises to Cover Companies Fines and Expenses

What happens when layoffs are coming…lots of them, and the law dictates that they be announced just before the election?  Apparently, the Obama administration is allowing companies to skate, while promising to cover their expenses for breaking the law.  Michelle Malkin has the rest.   According to the WARN Act, employers must provide 60 days notice to workers, labor union reps, local governments, etc., in advance of plant closings and mass layoffs that fall within the parameters of the Act. Defense contractor layoffs due to sequestration cuts (that Obama is pictured above announcing in January of this year) are looming January 2, 2013. […]

One Million in Ohio With “ObamaPhones.” Is the Administration Trying to “Buy” Votes?

We’ve covered the reaction to Romney’s great truth, also known as the “47% Speech.”  We’ve shown the videos of people saying that they’ll vote for Obama because he gave them “stuff.”  Then, we see this, from Dayton Daily News, that shows that quite a few Ohioans are holding “ObamaPhones.” A program that provides subsidized phone service to low-income individuals has nearly doubled in size in Ohio in the past year — now covering more than a million people. At the same time, federal officials say they’re reining in waste, fraud and abuse in the program. The Federal Communications Commission announced […]

November 7, 2012 _ Romney Wins By A Landslide!

In the interest of sanity, I felt compelled to find something up-lifting to write about today. In spite of the left stream Media’s consistent predictions of an Obama win in November, the reports of Romney’s political death are premature. I think it is not out of the realm of possibilities  that Mitt Romney will win by a landslide. A landslide to me would have Romney at 55%, Obama at 41%, and Gary Johnson at 4%. believe it or not, I have some support for being so optimistic. A dear commenter here at CoF left a link to this Business Insider article that […]

The Theory Of Evolution, Obama-Style

“Out of 28 states where constitutional amendments or initiatives that define marriage as the union of a man and a woman were put on the ballot in a voter referendum, voters in all 28 states voted to approve such amendments.“  —  Wikipedia In keeping with his tradition of giving the American people what they don’t want, the progressive panderer ensconced in the Oval Office has gotten behind gay marriage, so to speak, while describing his previous public vacillations on the issue (always tailored, if less than impeccably, to an election year audience) as “evolutions”.  Funny choice of words, that, since if […]

A Simple Graph on Jobs

This is what the election is about this year. Yes, it is important that our foreign policy goals have been accomplished- killing bin Laden, finishing up in Iraq, continuing to pressure terrorists around the world, encouraging revolutions aimed at toppling autocratic dictators, etc. Yes, it is important that many of our foreign policy goals have not been accomplished- those revolutions have resulted in less friendly and liberty loving people taking control, many revolutions were not supported, free trade agreements were not passed, rogue nations have continued to advance in weaponry, our allies are collapsing economically, our enemies are growing in […]

Santorum Wins the Important Megadeth Endorsement

In an, shall we say, interesting turn of events, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has endorsed Rick Santorum for POTUS… “Earlier in the election, I was completely oblivious as to who Rick Santorum was, but when the dude went home to be with his daughter when she was sick, that was very commendable,” Mustaine recently told  “… You know, I think Santorum has some presidential qualities, and I’m hoping that if it does come down to it, we’ll see a Republican in the White House… and that it’s Rick Santorum.” What this means for Santorum is unclear, but what is clear […]

Chuck Norris Roundhouse Kicks Mitt, Rick and Ron…

Chuck Norris, famed martial artist, action movie and television star has thrown a heart punch and told Newt he’s got his back saying, “we need a veteran of political war who has already fought Goliath.” In an article Norris wrote for World Net Daily, he says: “President Obama has tried and failed miserably to fix our economy, deepening us and our posterity into more than $6 trillion in additional national debt – something he criticized former President Bush for as “unpatriotic” and “irresponsible.” Yet unemployment rates remain at higher levels than when Obama was elected, and the dollar is as […]

Imagining A Brighter Future: Stocking a Romney Administration with Conservative Talent

Let’s think big picture here folks- in 2012, we have a chance to elect to the House and Senate people (and I honestly don’t care what party they are from) who will push for a balanced budget, reform of our entitlement programs so that they will be more fiscally sound, protection of private property, lower and more fair tax rates (more fair means flatter with less loopholes for politically connected elites), less regulations on businesses, more liberty and freedom for consumers and investors, and increased efficiency in the delivery of government services. These sorts of ‘tea party’ Congressman will drive […]
