Greatest Hits: How Hope can Kill the Progressive Agenda

How Hope can Kill the Progressive Agenda:  My thoughts from 2010 on how regressives have to kill hope in order to subjugate the masses.  The POTUS used “Hope” as a slogan during his campaign.  While we would argue that “hope” has nothing to do with Obama’s policies, there is a different context for it. The progressive agenda has nothing to do with hope; it is a proposal for a control mechanism, nothing more. Health care for all?  Not necessarily.  CONTROL of healthcare?  Absolutely! Financial reform?   Not so much. CONTROL of the financial sector?  Yup! Dealing with “Climate Change” saving the planet? […]

Greatest Hits: Will The Government Steal Your Savings? It’s More Likely Than You Think?

Will The Government Steal Your Savings? It’s More Likely Than You Think? I also ran across the planned thievery of the Spendulous Maximus… This has been a recurrent theme for several years.  It’s been simmering on the back burner, so to speak, but it continues to get some attention from time to time.  The issue is savings.  Whether it be your 401k, or your IRA, or even a savings account; the democrats has been eying them like a crackhead views their pipe.  Big government has wasted trillions on making more poor people, creating dependency, paying off contributors, punishing enemies, arming […]

Greatest Hits: They Said if I Voted for Romney, They’d Come After my 401(k), and They Were Right!

They Said if I Voted for Romney, They’d Come After my 401(k), and They Were Right!:   Don’t be surprised when they come for your savings… That’s right kids, they government is eyeing your 401(k), IRA, or 403(b) with great envy.  And, as for the title, since Stacey is talking blog shtick, I thought I’d borrow from his well, which is deep with all sorts of goodness.   But, back to the seriousness.  There has been rumblings about the government taking over all private retirement accounts for some time.  Apparently, the democrats just can’t let a big pool of money sit there in […]

Must See Video: American Police Chief Refuses To Pledge Allegiance To The Flag, Claims Her Muslim Religion Won’t Let Her

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. Maybe she’s a fan of President Obama’s. If you’ll remember he won’t put his heart over his hand to Recite the Pledge of Allegiance or when the National Anthem is playing. An Assistant Police Chief in Miami, Florida has decided that she cannot put her hand over her heart and pledge allegiance to the flag during official government events because she is a practicing Muslim and her religion prohibits her from doing it. In a video Asst. Chief Anita Najiy is seen refusing to place her hand over her heart during the […]

Must See Courtroom Video: Kentucky Judge Lets Armed Robbers Off, Calls Three-Year-Old White Victim ‘Racist’

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston. A black judge in Kentucky gave a home invader and armed robber a light sentence because he said he feels that the three-year-old white victim was a “racist” because in her victim statement the little girl said she is now afraid of black people after two black men broke into her home and threatened her with a gun. In an outrageous statement from the bench, Louisville Judge Olu Stevens attacked the tiny white toddler and her parents for their “racism” calling the little girl’s statement “disturbing” while at the same time excusing the actions of […]

No, George Washington DIDN’T Say America Should Stay Out Of Foreign Affairs

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. A great piece on the Father of our Country. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ With the talk of how bad Islam is for civilization and the question of just what to do about it, we are seeing those lightly informed about American history claiming that our founders–in particular George Washington–warned us to stay out of “foreign entanglements.” In fact, however, Washington neither said this, nor meant for such a policy to be enacted. Many on the left and the isolationist right try to use the father of our country to support their ideas against the GOP […]

After Obama Slobbers All Over The Mullahs, Ayatollah Calls On U.S. Youth To Join Jihad

  Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. So despite all the brown-nosing, sucking up, and general, all around ass kissing President Obama has done to the Ayatollah of Iran, he still urges our own kids to join his jihad. Way to go, Obama. On Friday, President Barack Obama slobbered all over himself to come to the aide of the Iranian Mullahs–mostly to spite our Israeli allies. But on the very same day Obama gave the Mullahs his undying love, the Ayatollah urged our own kids to join the world wide movement of violent, Islamist jihad. On Friday, Obama disgorged […]

Left Pushing To Replace Andrew Jackson On $20 Bill With Baby Killer And Genocidal Enviro-Statist

  Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Hell bring the $2 bill back and put someone with female genitalia on that… There is a new campaign afoot that is tickling the interests of the mainstream media. It is an effort to kick President Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replace him with a woman. Sadly at least three of the candidates do not belong on the list. One is a famous hater of men, another can only be termed a mass murderer, and the third was an important supporter of […]

Obama Purposefully Set Clinton Up To Get Away With Email Crimes

  Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. So THAT’s why he never filled that job… President Obama made dead sure that Hillary Clinton would never get caught using illegal private email systems while Secretary of State by refusing to appoint an official internal inspector general for the Dept. of State during Hillary’s tenure, a new report shows. It is the duty of the president to make sure that every government department has its own appointed Inspector General to serve as an internal watchdog over an agency. But during Hillary’s entire tenure, Obama never bothered to fill the vacant […]

Grand Old Cavemen

  “I told you guys the Senate GOP would screw us over on DHS funding, but even I had no idea Mitch McConnell would capitulate so easily. I assumed he’d do a major song and dance first, but instead he just went all Ned Beatty in Deliverance the moment Barack Obama looked at him funny.” –Eunuch Mitch McConnell Squeals Like a Pig “This is a total victory for the Obama position,” said a GOP senator unhappy with McConnell’s plan “Counterfeiters use the reputation of a trademark, which brand manufacturers have built up on the basis of the quality of their […]

How Hope can Kill the Progressive Agenda

The progressive agenda has nothing to do with hope; it is a proposal for a control mechanism, nothing more. Health care for all?  Not necessarily.  CONTROL of healthcare?  Absolutely! Financial reform?   Not so much. CONTROL of the financial sector?  Yup! Dealing with “Climate Change” saving the planet?  Not even close.   Massive redistribution program?  YES! I could go on and on, but I think the point is made.  If there is […]

The Decline And Fall Of The Arkansas Battleaxe

  “It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.” – David Brin “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” – Jerry Zeifman, Retired General Counsel & Chief of Staff of the House Judiciary Committee “When in public, Hillary smiles and acts graciously. As soon as the cameras are gone, her angry personality, nastiness, and imperiousness become evident.” – Ronald Kessler “Hillary, like […]

What Hillary Meant To Say Is, “If you like your job, you can keep your job”

  Here comes the spin! Last week millionaire Democrat Hillary Clinton teamed up with populist uber-leftist millionaire Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren to deliver a zinger aimed at American businesses: “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” She’s a Statist. Statists believe only the government can create jobs. (Or Vernon Jordan, if you count creating jobs for Bill’s mistresses.) We get it, we didn’t build that. But, after enduring a weekend of ridicule (except on the Big 3 networks of course) The Hilldabeest backtracked, and blamed her “misstatement” on an internet video. “Trickle down economics has […]

How You Can Affirm Your Country Is Run By Idiots

Found at the Mb50 blog, who, in turn, found it at The Conservative Citizen, the answer to today’s question is attributed to a Jeff Foxworthy. Here, without comment is Foxworthy’s “priceless” analysis: – By Jeff Foxworthy – If you can  get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for  entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might live in a  nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. … If  you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take  an aspirin in school, but not […]

The Debt Limit Debate as Seen Through Groundhog Day Glasses

We all remember Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, the movie where one day in history just kept repeating itself. Well let’s look at the Debt Limit debate through the prism of Groundhog Day:    

President Obama’s Top Ten Most Divisive and Un-Constitutional Executive Actions

Since he took office in January of 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama has flouted the rule of law which is the bedrock America was founded on. He has visibly encroached upon and exceeded the boundaries set forth in the United States Constitution. Now Obama hasn’t written more executive orders than his predecessors, in fact, in his first five years he is on par with other one term presidents. But in his case,it isn’t the quantity, it’s the quality of the EOs.   The Heritage Foundation has taken the time to compile a list of the top ten most egregious un-Constitutional […]

Amazing Feats of Dexterity: MSNBC Host Chris Hayes Conducts Interview with his foot in his mouth.

Nevada Assembly Woman Michelle Fiore was at the Bundy ranch in Nevada and happened to be interviewed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes. Folks, let me tell you – this was better than any episode of Celebrity Death Match. Fiore was fierce, remained composed and never once took the bait of the left’s talking points. Despite Hayes’ repeated attempts to steer the conversation towards painting rancher Cliven Bundy as a criminal, Fiore stood her ground and gave better than she got. She stuck to her original premise that not only is the amount allegedly owed in question, and additionally where does […]

States’ Rights Back in the News

The timing of this is spot on, even though it’s been in the works long before the Cliven Bundy standoff in which the Bureau of Land Management tried to use heavy handed tactics and run rough shod over a United States Citizen.  This is just the latest example of states growing weary of the federal government usurping their authority and autonomy. Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including her counterparts from Idaho and Montana, during a press conference after the daylong closed-door summit. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee addressed the group over lunch, Ivory said. […]
