Trey Gowdy is a Dreamer?

Here are three videos highlighting Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy’s prosecutorial skills and his sense of humor. In this video, Trey Gowdy explains that he had a disturbing dream and he’s a bit worried about it’s interpretation. In this video, Gowdy asks the media why they’ve been derelict in their duty on Benghazi. And in this last clip, he shows us why he was such a successful prosecutor, never having lost a case. You almost, almost feel sorry for the IRS Commissioner. Nah! Not really! .

Leftwaaard..Maaaarch! Left….Left…Left…

While we on the Right have been enjoying some well deserved Schadenfreude at the expense of President Obama and the Democrats over the diasterous rollout of Obamacare, with some of our pundits going so far as to claim that the public’s awakening due to Obamacare will be the end of liberalism in America, the Left has been planning their counter attack. Rather than concede that Obama’s program to provide health insurance to everyone, including those with preexisting conditions, was too big of a move to the Left, the left Left-wing of the Democratic Party is looking at Barack Obama and […]

Janet Napolitano Caught Lying to Congress: Media Silent

One thing that you can always count on is that the mainstream media will cover for the Obama Administration. It occurred again today when Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of Homeland Security, went to Congress, and lied her carcass off.  Conservative Daily News has more… Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) inquired about Abdul Rahman Ali al Harbi, about whom Napolitano refused to answer questions at a previous hearing. “Before the [Tsarnaev] brothers became the focus of the investigation, authorities questioned a Saudi student who reportedly was on a terror watchlist,” said Grassley, “…if so, how did he obtain a student visa?” Napolitano’s […]

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 […]

Manhattan Infidel’s Ten-Point Plan to Get the Hispanic Vote

  The defeat of the Republican candidate for president was in large part due to the loss of the all-important Hispanic (or is it Latino?) vote. Having spent the entire week since the election pouring over the available data moving the bodies from my crawlspace to a remote upstate location I now present my exclusive ten-point program to win the Latino (or is it Hispanic?) vote. But first let me address a few words to my Hispanic (or is it Latino?) friends.  My Spanish is faulty so I apologize for butchering your fine language that has brought the world so much besides […]

A Plea to Government Officials to Stop Their Amateur Meddling in Business

Last week at a political event I had an interesting conversation with several other Republican city officials regarding what to do with a local vacant shopping mall. These were all nice people- one owned a local business, one was a nurse, another worked for a charity- and all of them have a vote on the city board and all of them were properly concerned regarding the vacant and non-taxpaying property in the city. But, and I think this is very important, none of them were real estate investors or successful operators of shopping malls. They were simply nice people with […]

War on Santorum Continues: Apparently, Bringing up Satan at a Religious Institution is “bad?”

Wow, someone in the White House, or perhaps Spooky Dude’s minions, must have said, “get this guy!”  Because, the full fury of the MSM has been turned on Rick Santorum. Today’s edition of Attack Santorum comes from 2008, when he spoke at Ave Maria University.  The following is from Ben Shapiro at Big Government… Here’s what the Republican frontrunner said: Satan has his sights on the United States of America! … Satan is attacking the great institutions of America, using those great vices of pride, vanity, and sensuality as the root to attack all of the strong plants that has so […]

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 MusicRadar.com.  “… 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 […]

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. […]

I’ve Found a Presidential Candidate I can Support: Unfortunately, He’s British

Yes, I know that we can’t run him for POTUS, but I really wish we could.  For the evidence, behold this rhetorical masterpiece. I know this is a long shot, but given all the conspiracy theories of late, perhaps we can say he was born in, for the sake of argument, Hawaii?  Now, does anyone know Photoshop?  We need a birth certificate! Seriously though, Mr. Hannan has a better grasp of our founding documents, and he ideas of the founders, than most of our own so-called Conservatives.  We’d do well to listen to this man, even though we cannot elect him. H/T: […]

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. […]

Newt Gingrich Wins South Carolina Primary

The reports of Mitt Romney’s “inevitability” have been greatly exaggerated.  Earlier in the week, It seemed as if Romney would go 3-0 after today.  But, after his win in Iowa was overturned, and he took a pounding from Mitt Romney today in SC, he’s down to 1-2, and he seems to be fading.  For more SC coverage, here are some results from The Other McCain… One “Occupy” heckler was started shouting during the speech, and then another half-dozen of the “Occupiers” erupted after the speech ended. They were escorted out by security, and then police arrived to escort them off […]

Thaddeus McCotter

2012electionapocalypse

I’ve heard of Thaddeus McCotter before, and have seen excerpts of his speeches.  I know that he has some fans, but he’s very little known.  He is, however, running, so I thought a closer look was in order.  So, here is his speech from last week’s Iowa Straw Poll. http://youtu.be/qtVC5CR7b1s While I don’t find him to be electrifying, he does make good points, and would seem to have a good grasp on Conservative ideology.  Of course, at this point, he doesn’t seem to have a chance, but we ought to look at everyone. What do all of you think?

Would you Like Some Bias with your Bias? Krugman wants MSM to be Even More Biased

Losing_share

When the regressives are desperate, they seem to drop most, of not all pretenses.  Case in point, Paul Krugman of the NY Slimes had some interesting comments earlier in the week.  Newsbusters has the details… Liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman on Friday denounced the “centrist cop-out” of balance. Krugman specifically singled out the Associated Press for not exclusively blaming the ongoing debt ceiling impasse on the Republican Party. Complaining about too much fairness, the author derided his journalistic colleagues, “But making nebulous calls for centrism, like writing news reports that always place equal blame on both parties, is […]

Conspiracy Theorist or Snake Oil Salesmen Trying To Discredit the Conservative Cause

tin foilhati

John Scotus of The Tree of Mamre blog has written a brilliant essay on the dangers of conservative bloggers associating themselves with some conspiracies and/or their proponents. John’s point is that some of these anti-Obama conspiracy proponents may in fact be liberals trying to bait conservatives to climb on a given conspiracy bandwagon for the sole purpose of making conservatives appear as some wacko fringe element. That’s right. He is suggesting that here may be a hidden conspiracy behind the conspiracy being touted. John has done a remarkable job of framing the issue and supporting his arguments. Here is an excerpt from John’s essay but […]

Quick! Find Mr. Spock and see if he has a goatee!

Because, my friends, it’s strange parallel universe time! Every once and a while, something comes across the blogosphere that makes me think that we are in some sort of alternate reality, where things are completely upside down.  Case in point:  Reaganite Republican has published the claim that John Lennon was a closet Republican, and Reagan fan, in the last years of his life… In new documentary Beatles Stories, Seaman tells filmmaker Seth Swirsky Lennon wasn’t the peace-loving militant fans thought he was while he was his assistant. He says, “John, basically, made it very clear that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan […]

Bear Sh*ts in Woods; Climate of Hate Blamed

Today a bear relieved himself in the woods. Across America panicked citizens called into talk radio and asked what it meant. On Mike Malloy’s progressive talk radio shot Malloy talked about the day’s events. I think the fact that this bear has seen fit to relieve himself in the woods can be laid at the feet of John Boehner.  Obviously the climate of hatred that Boehner and the Republicans spew out every day made this bear feel that he could do this with no repercussions.  I just thank god that no one, except for the innocent vegetation shat upon was […]

A Tale ofTwo Stories: Rick Perry Electrifies Conservatives, Brings Light Bulbs back to Texas

I have to admit that I don’t know all that much about Texas Governor Rick Perry.  But after these two stories, I’ll be giving him a closer look. First up, Governor Perry lit it up at the recent Republican Leadership Conference.  Another Black Conservative has the video. (Note that I could not get the original video to embed, so I got another version from YouTube) I thought it was a rather good speech.   He has some pluses, like the fact that  Texans are creating most of the new private sector jobs in the country, and I don’t think they’re […]

An Open Letter to Michael Steele

I sent the following letter to Michael Steele, Chairman of the Republican National Committee. As the policies and actions of the Obama Administration have become more readily apparent, the Republican Party 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 is a reason 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 […]
