Top 10 Biggest Lies of The Year – Guess How Many Obama Told?

The biggest lie of the year belongs to our faithfully fibbing president. Obama told the biggest lie of the year not once, but 36 times. And make no mistake, this was not an oversight or a case where he just didn’t know. Obama knowingly looked you right in the face and lied, and then he lied about lying about it, but that’s another story. The Washington Post gives Obama kudos for the biggest lie of the year and also presents the Top 10 Biggest Lies. Guess how many of the Top 10 Lies for 2013 were Obama’s? It turns out […]

Faking an Atrocity: Eleven Fake Hate Crimes, And the Liberals That Stage Them

One of the predictable things about liberalism are all the lies-not just those needed to present their ‘ideas,” but all the other lies needed to perpetuate them.  After all, when you entire ideology is based on lies, you have to lie a lot to do keep the train wreck moving forward.  Here is a list of recent hate crimes perpetrated by liberals, against themselves… Perhaps attempting some misguided publicity stunt or perhaps trying to make others see hate where there is none, these people have gone to great lengths to claim they’ve been targeted. Here’s a look back at some […]

No Religious Freedoms for Businesses?

In a recent Op-Ed, Mr. Leonard Pitts, Jr. tried to make the case that violating someone’s 1st Amendment rights is the same as the idea that one’s personal liberty ends where the next person’s begins. Let me also use a quote to make my point.  “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.” A direct quote correctly attributed to President Abraham Lincoln in a letter to Henry L. Pierce, April, 1859. In this letter, he was declining an invitation to speak at an event in Boston, honoring […]

Milwaukee County Sheriff Sets the Record Straight

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr sees the Liberal policies that have destroyed the black community for what they are, and he’s not afraid to tell you how he feels. His recently penned Op-Ed in the Washington Times lays it on the line and he pulls no punches. He gets it. He knows that big government begets dependency and dependency begets societal breakdown.   Believe me when I tell you, this is a must-read. CLARKE: Liberal policies have destroyed the black family

What Has Happened To The Once Mighty Peacock?

The executives and powers that be over at 30 Rockefeller Plaza have evidently never heard that old adage, when you find yourself in a hole – STOP DIGGING!! What has happened to the network that brought us such sterling news people as, Hugh Downs, Tom Brokaw, Tim Russert, David Brinkley, Jessica Savitch, John Chancellor and Stone Phillips? The list of NBC’s faux pas keeps growing and growing with each passing day, it seems. Let’s recap, shall we? (and these are just the ones this author remembers) * MSNBC television host Ed Shultz via his radio show – - calls radio […]

This is What Liberalism Does to a City: Abandonded Library in Detroit

Detroit is the perfect exemplification of long term results of liberalism on a geographical area.  Massive corruption, crime, flight of businesses, fight of productive people, decay, death-it’s all there, for the world to see.  Of course, liberals there follow the classic strategy of making it someone else’s fault, but that fall on deaf ears.  As yet another examples of Detroit’s ruins, here is a link to some images of a public library-long abandoned by the citizenry; of which, nearly half cannot read.   

500 Teens Riot in Chicago, Claims of Racial Motivation Made

Chicago is liberal central-you have Rahmbo as mayor,  class warfare reigns, and they have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.  In light of that, I guess what Doug Ross is posting shouldn’t come as a big surprise…  After all 500 teens riot in Chicago. CBS Channel 2 calls the rioters “mischievous”. The warmest day of the year so far brings hundreds of mischievous teens to Michigan Avenue… [But] Police are calling it ‘mob action’. CBS 2 is learning about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding […]

Pardon Me, Mr. President; Your (Freudian) Slip is Showing…

Much ado has been made (and rightfully so) about Candy Crowley’s performance as moderator in the second of the three Presidential Debates this year. Opinions on the left range from embarrassment to outright praise; while those on the right are pretty much in agreement that she was definitely in the tank for team Obama. In an internal memo obtained by TMZ and reported on Breitbart, Crowley’s Managing Editor thought she did a “superb job.” However, the question practically nobody is asking (although I did find one article about it on the Independent Journal Review) is “Did CNN and the Obama […]

It’s Not Easy Being Green: Green Cars Cause More Pollution!

When it comes to green cars, I feel obligated to invoke Quinn’s First Law… “Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of it’s stated intent.” You can’t argue it.  The “war on poverty” caused more poverty.  Since the onset of the Department of Education, education has gotten worse.  I could go on all day, but you get the point.  Liberals state that they are going to make something better, and instead make it worse.  Then, they blame us for their failure.  Here is the latest; green cars cause more pollution!  The Lonely Conservative has more… The Daily Caller reported that a new study by […]

The Warren Report: Fauxcahontas Walks The Trail Of Jeers

For Elizabeth Warren — Harvard Law School progressive, self-proclaimed Cherokee maid, and Oklahoma house flipper — the path to Chappaquiddick Teddy’s old Senate seat has turned into a Trail of Jeers.  Even her Tribe has disowned her, despite the compelling evidence she has presented in support of her claim of membership: …Warren was listed in the early 1990s as a minority professor at Harvard University, but the only proof Warren has of her claim of 1/32nd Cherokee blood is family stories about high cheek bones … To liberal kemosabes like Bernie Quigley, however, Fauxcahontas isn’t Right, so she can’t be […]

The Battle of Big Ideas: CONSTRAINED vs. UNCONSTRAINED

Bill Whittle hits another one out of the park with his latest video.

More Evidence that OWS is a Microcosm of Their Future Socialist State

Redistribution is one of the key foundational concepts of socialism.  People having differing talents & work habits is inherently unfair, so government has to steal from others, and give to others.  Naturally, we have history to teach us that this thinking eventually fails, but reality is an elusive concept to our left, so additional examination is needed. The latest example comes from OWS, who have been taking over forclosed homes, and kinda-sorta giving them to others.  Let’s see how that has worked out for them.  Hot Air has the details… The proposal originally attracted the support of Wise Ahadzi, owner […]

Why We Suck

I really don’t have anything to add to this. As usual, Mr. Whittle is eloquent and to the point, so sit back and enjoy learning why we suck.

Re-Redefining Conservatism

rino_big

Remember when Bush came into office with his “compassionate conservative” slogan?  Remember how that translated?  Compassionate conservatism was Bush’s way of saying, “Hey, I’m for capitalism, but only up to a certain point, then I’m for socialism”.  In politics, this is a “playing the whole field” approach.  It appeases moderates who want to hear milquetoast language, liberals who want the social net, and conservatives who aren’t paying attention (hey, conservatism is in the name, it must be good). Now Romney, who plays center field with the range of Willie Mays, ran into a criticism after he said that he “didn’t care […]

Mental Disorder Reaches Epidemic Status

Recent research suggests that a common mental disorder in Washington DC is spreading through the US at a staggering rate, leaving the populace mentally feeble and unable to comprehend reality.   The name of the disorder is Do Something-itis, or Do Anything-itis.  The disorder is said to impact the brain in such a way that the patient believes that government intervention can solve problems.   This from Dr. Hiram Lockjaw, senior scientist at the CDC: These problems used to be contained in the centers of power, academia, media, and law.  Most civilians affected resided in “blue” states.  We use electoral maps to track the progress […]

Public School Fail: When all Else Fails, Cheat!

school-fail

One of the criticisms of standardized testing is that schools will “teach to the test.”  In other words, they teach the anticipated content of the test, leading to a narrow and dumbed down curriculum.    In Atlanta, they obviously misunderstood that axiom, and decided to “cheat to the test.” A year-long investigation first orchestrated by former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue (R) and now released by current Gov. Nathan Deal (R) has unearthed cheating and unethical behavior across every level of the 55,000-student Atlanta Public School System. The Atlanta Journal Constitutionreports: “Teachers and principals erased and corrected mistakes on students’ answer sheets. […]

Classic Conservative Hideout: Individual Rights Vs. The Collective

When we speak about the rights of the individual, we are saying something very different than the left’s view of the topic.  Our founders carefully crafted a Constitution that is designed to protect us from the excesses of government.  However, a sufficient percentage of the people have not guarded those rights against government intrusion, until just recently.  Those excesses are readily apparent in our country today:  federal control of education, health care, environmental law, interference with personal property rights, and a litany of others, all in violation of the spirit of the Constitution and it’s writers, interfere with the everyday […]

Who Indoctrinates the Indoctrinators? Teachers Required to Think Socialist to Get Degrees

In light of the renewed focus on public education, courtesy of the current public union mess, I thought it might be a good idea to take another look at how teachers are trained.  Here is a post from December of 2009. The People’s Republic of China generally makes no distinction between education and propaganda or indoctrination. All three share the common task of changing man. The agencies of education, indoctrination, and propaganda are legion—newspapers, posters, and propaganda leaflets, neighbourhood gatherings for the study of current events, as well as political rallies, parades, and many forms of “mass campaigns” under careful direction. It […]

Welcome to the “Progressive” Utopia of Detroit

Here is a recipe from our “progressive” friends… Mix the following… High Taxes Liberal planning and feel good programs Failing schools Labor unions High crime Corruption Social Justice Bake for several decades.  Beat on occasion if capitalism breaks out. Ding Look at the lovely liberal Detroit, ready for serving… The NY Times covered this… It was the largest percentage drop in history for any American city with more than 100,000 residents, apart from the unique situation of New Orleans, where the population droppedby 29 percent after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, said Andrew A. Beveridge, a sociologist at Queens College. The number of people […]

Liberal to English Translation

The liberal media has been a very useful tool of the liberal. The liberal media has even adopted the language of the liberal. For example, it’s not raising taxes, it’s “investing.” It’s not abortion, it’s “choice.”

Classic CH 2.0: Some Brief Thoughts on the Nature of Ideological Warfare

Here’s a post from this past spring. I think it has some relevance to right now.  -Matt Remember this quote from Michelle Obama? “Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone . . . Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual – uninvolved, uninformed.” She was far more prophetic than she will ever know. Since Obama’s election, millions of Americans have become more informed, […]

Liberal tolerance? Not if you disagree with them…

Following comments made by on Monday’s O’Reilly Factor, long time political analyst at National Public Radio, Juan Williams was fired by NPR.

Blog Focus: A Plague of Incurious, Liberal Know-it-Alls

As part of the Blog Focus Feature, I couldn’t resist posting this from Reaganite Republican. A Plague of Incurious, Liberal Know-it-Alls Does it ever occur to them that there might be a reason for the things other people do? Richard Pecore has an illuminating and insightful piece in America Thinker today- sure applies to my personal journey and long-evolving political philosophy, and I’m sure some of this will sound mightily familiar to you…some excerpts (highlights mine): Liberals feel compelled to tell us they know better, without ever asking a question. They do so without giving a second thought to why Conservatives might disagree […]

Liberalism: Losing is Winning, and Winning is Losing

In the upside-down world of the Liberal Zone, things take on a surreal quality.  I know the saying that suggests, “only a liberal can stand on his head and tell everyone else that they’re upside down,” but what I saw this morning takes the cake. Apparently, an Ottawa youth soccer league has decreed that if a a team wins by more than five goals, they lose!  For more on this steaming pile of liberal fail, here are some comments from the National Post. The Gloucester Dragons Recreational Soccer league’s newly implemented edict is intended to dissuade a runaway game in […]

Leftist Professor is Booed for Condemning Arizona Law

Here is a video of a liberal professor being booed for attacking the Arizona Immigration law. Note that she repeats the tired lie that the law about the law being about racial profiling.  I wonder if she read it, or is she simply lying?  Did you notice that her speech consisted of mostly meaningless liberal double talk? Here is some more analysis on this event from Campus Reform. It seems a major disconnect exists between the students at Arizona — as evidenced by the Soto video — and the student senate. The student government voted 9-1 to pass the bill […]
