From The Mouths Of Babes and Childish Liberals

Kids do say the darndest things, as Art Linkletter use to say. It’s not that children necessarily make up lies. It’s that they have limited information  and understanding and they have vivid imaginations. And so, when a child fabricates a wild story to explain things they couldn’t possibly understand, we naturally find them hilarious. When adults do the same thing, it’s not so funny; especially when those adults are politicians or so-called news reporters. Last night, before shutting down my computer, I made a visit to BadBlue Uncensored News where I often find interesting subjects for a post. Almost instantly, […]

Karl Rove Declares War on Tea Party: Fundraising Drops by 98%

As so many people, including myself, have been pointing out, it seems that the establishment GOP is busily waging war against their own base.   The Tea Party movement had activated the Conservative base of the party in ways hadn’t been seen since the election of Ronald Reagan.  As such, the party establishment decided that the base must be “put in their place,” so they could return to voting for a “softer form of socialism.”   Karl Rove, know as the “evil emperor,” for his handling of the Bush presidency, was appointed to, or decided to, attack Tea Party oriented candidates all […]

The GOP Plan To Eat Its Own

I came across this American Spectator article by Jeffery Lord at the MB50 blog. It was the title, Karl Rove and the GOP Socialists, that captured my attention. Before getting into Karl Rove and his big-government Republican socialists, I need to be up front with you, dear readers, about my view of the geo-politics of America today. This humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in arrived at the conclusion some time ago that it no longer matters much who is elected to the House, the Senate, or even the Presidency. The Leviathan is out of control. Any […]

ObamaCare Damage: College Studenst Reacts, and it Isn’t Pretty

When college students were asked ObamaCare, the reactions were, shall we say, less than positive.  Chicks on the Right has more… Once again, I have suggested that the GOP, by reaching out with a viable message, can convert these people to GOP voters with relative ease. However, they are too concentrated on playing it safe with the democrats, and attacking the Tea Party, AKA, their base.  So, they’ll miss this classic opportunity. And that is why we call them the stupid party.

An Open Letter to the GOP Establishment

As the policies and actions of the Obama Administration have become increasingly recognized as destructive, the Republican Party establishment may believe that they have “default” support among Conservative and Independents for the upcoming election cycle.  I would urge you to examine this more closely.  As you may have noticed, the approval ratings for Republicans are still quite low.  There are multiple reasons for this beyond the fact that the left and the media are against Republicans. I believe that these low ratings are due to the Party’s abandoning of Conservative principals.  After George W. Bush was elected, government continued to […]

GOP: Defending Main Street or Selling It Out?

In February of this year, Michelle Malkin wrote: “This is war.” She was referring to Karl Rove’s plan to use his Super PAC, American Crossroads, to put an end to the Tea Party movement. Rove and his big money backers want to make sure that statist GOP incumbents do not lose in the primaries to Tea Party backed conservative candidates. Ms. Malkin is right. It is war! And, now we learn that another regiment has joined in the battle to destroy the Tea Party conservatives. Maggie’s Notebook has what I consider a “must read” post for any conservative who wants […]

Ezekiel Emanuel Interviewed by Megyn Kelly Regarding ObamaCare: He’s a Jerk

We’ve covered Ezekiel Emanuel before, starting back in 2009.  In fact, we called him “EZKILL” Emanuel, for the following reasons… Strict youngest-first allocation directs scarce resources predominantly to infants. This approach seems incorrect. The death of a 20-year-old woman is intuitively worse than that of a 2-month-old girl, even though the baby has had less life. The 20-year-old has a much more developed personality than the infant, and has drawn upon the investment of others to begin as-yet-unfulfilled projects…. Adolescents have received substantial substantial education and parental care, investments that will be wasted without a complete life. Infants, by contrast, […]

GOP: Grand Old Poltroons

“Republican leadership has completely lost its way. Not only is this proposal a full surrender- it’s a complete surrender with presents for the Democrats. Apparently Mitch McConnell’s idea of a ‘compromise’ is to increase the debt limit, fully fund a broken health care law, and promise talks of increasing spending down the road.” – Matt Kibbe “We have the best government that money can buy.” – Mark Twain The dirty deal is done.  Mitch McConnell sold what was left of his soul for $2 billion, and Barack Obama and his cronies get to spend another trillion dollars of your money. […]

GOP: Inept By Definition?

in·ept   [in-ept, ih-nept]  Show IPA adjective 1. without skill or aptitude for a particular task or assignment; maladroit: He is inept at mechanical tasks.She is inept at dealing with people. 2. generally awkward or clumsy; haplessly incompetent. 3. inappropriate; unsuitable; out of place. 4. absurd or foolish: an inept remark. No where does the ineptitude of Republicans more clearly on display than their absolute inability to articulate an easily understood message to the public on any serious issue; like ObamaCare, for example. The good Dr. Thomas Sowell wrote a blistering analysis of the GOP’s messaging problem the other day. This was his opening volley: If the continued existence of mathematics depended on the ability of the Republicans to defend the proposition that two plus two equals four, that would probably mean the end of mathematics and of […]

Some Quick Facts and Thoughts on The OMG! Government Shutdown

I just have some quick thoughts on the government shutdown, and the stupid political theater that I detest.  So, here is some stream of consciousness… 1.  I really hate agreeing with the GOP Stupid Party, but they are doing real good in terms of trying to delay or defund ObamaCare.  The law is hurting people already, it’s only going to hurt more once fully implemented. 2.  In a sense, they are helping the Democrats.  If the law takes effect, and the exchanges aren’t ready, the computer systems fail, and people’s information is stolen, the Democrats will pay dearly in the […]

GOP Adds Conscience Clause for ObamaCare to Continuing Resolution

In a move that can be categorized under “Epic Win,”  the House Republicans added a Conscience Clause clause to ObamaCare in their most recent continuing resolution. Right Scoop has the details… CNN – House Republicans have added a measure aimed at limiting contraceptive coverage to the spending bill coming up for a vote Saturday night, a spokesman for Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kansas, told CNN. A senior House leadership aide confirmed that development. The so-called “conscience clause” would allow employers and insurers to opt out of preventative care for women which they find objectionable on moral or religious grounds. That prominently […]

Senator Mike Lee says, ‘From Day One, The Country Was Misled About What Was in The Bill’

Senator Mike Lee of Utah demonstrated his grasp of the obvious regarding the recently passed, and little read Immigration Bill Mother of all Democratic Voter Drives. CNS News has the video… This is a situation where statists and idiots of both parties united and passed a abomination of a immigration bill.  To see some GOP “all stars” voting for this blatantly deficient pig is deeply disappointing.

The Dictionary of Barack Obama

We here at the worldwide headquarters of Manhattan Infidel pride ourselves on our knowledge of words.  For words are the medium through which we communicate.  The wrong choice of words can lead to misunderstanding.  Like the other night at the bar when I asked the college girl if she would like to touch it.  She misunderstood me.  Hence the taser.  Perhaps a different choice of words would have resulted in a different outcome.  I’ll never know.  Especially now that I’ve been ordered to stay 50 feet away from her. What was I talking about?  Oh yes.  Words.  As as service […]

Let it Burn: Should the GOP Allow Obama to Raise Taxes?

An idea has been mentioned that perhaps the GOP should simply vote “present” for any “fiscal cliff” vote, and allow Obama to raise all the taxes they want.  Then, as the thinking goes, Obama and the Democrats will take the blame for the job losses and such that result.  The Trifecta panel, via PJ Media, discusses this… While the panel only lightly discussed the media’s role in any scenario  I think it’s important.  Because, even if the GOP gives Obama exactly what he wants, it will never be Obama’s fault.  Even if the exact tax increases that Obama requests are found to be […]

In the end we will all pay for this QE3 deception

  In the Art of War Sun Tzu states that “all warfare is based on deception.”  Elections are about war; an ideological war for the hearts and minds of the electorate.  Candidates attack and counterattack each other until the day after Election Day when one emerges victorious and the other concedes defeat.  So if election campaigns can be viewed as war then one can conclude that deception is used to mask truth and divert the attention of the electorate away from the issues that truly matter.  So far this election cycle President Obama has been masterful at deflecting and deceiving the people.  […]

The Conservative Resistance Is On The Path To Victory

How’s that for starting out the week on a positive note? In a long article, on the order of 3000 words, Daren Jonescu at American Thinker makes the case for our ultimate victory. By the second paragraph, I was hooked and had to keep reading to see where his thought thread was leading. In essence, he makes the case that our 100 year history of losing every major policy battle is what is leading us to victory. It is not so much that we will finally win the final battle. On the contrary, it is the frustration of our long and growing resistance […]

Letter to Mr. Establishment

Dear Mr. Establishment, For too long we have been dancing out of step.  For years you have stared into our eyes and told us what we wanted to hear, but then unapologetically stepped on our toes and took inappropriate advances.  You’re drunk, clumsy, arrogant and jealous.  If we ever dared look for a different dance partner – someone who knew our style, who could keep up and respect us, you would just bully him out of the dance hall. Well, there’s a new tune playing and our toes will take no more abuse.  You, like most high school jocks, have […]

Guest Post From The Classic Liberal: There Is No Conservative Movement

Note From Matt:   The following  is a guest post from The Classic Liberal.  It is posted here because our friend has the habit of forcing us to think about what we are doing.  I’m all for debate, and being challenged, so give this a read, and see if it makes you consider your thinking or actions.   Dan Riehl wrote a couple of posts earlier this year that are worth examining. Here’s the second one first. What Conservative Movement? Bush 43 was correct, there’s more than enough evidence to conclude there is no genuine Conservative Movement in America today; […]

Here is the link to the live feed for tonight’s debate… CNN I will adding commentary, if able.

Will Gingrich Respond to National Review’s Call to Drop out and Endorse Santorum?

After surging in South Carolina,  Newt Gingrich crashed and burned in Florida, and shows no signs or recovering.  After several poor showings in a row, the vultures are circling over the dying campaign.  One influential source, The National Review, has called on him to drop out of the race, and lend his support to Rick Santorum.  Teresa, at Teresamerica, has more… Today the National Review has taken a bold move and requested that Gingrich drop out of the race and endorse Rick Santorum.  With Santorum’s rise in popularity and continued surge, and Gingrich’s implosion I think this is a good idea. […]

Santorum Capitalizes on Tuesday Victories

2012electionapocalypse

Once again, the pundits are shocked, and Romney’s inevitability has again been put on hold.   Rick Santorum won three states on Tuesday, and it appears that his campaign has had an influx of cash as well.  More on the influx of cash from The Blaze… His three wins yesterday were bound to give his fundraising numbers a boost today — but Rick Santorum says a steady stream of dollars started to pour in even before his polling numbers began to rise. “We’ve had a great 24 hours,” Santorum told CBS News in an interview. “My guess is we’ve raised—I haven’t heard […]

Here is the live feed for the GOP debate in Florida… Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy   It ought to be interesting. UPDATE:  The link will remain up, so people that missed the debate can watch for themselves. I thought that Romney came out far more aggressively tonight, and had his sights set on Newt Gingrich.  However, I have to agree with the MSM talking heads in that Gingrich seemed to brush aside Romney’s attacks.  Romney did seem, at least to me, to come off as a bit more childish, and needlessly so. […]
