Which President Did The Best Job During His First Six Years In The White House?   Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and imperfectamerica at Red State. . . .

Straw Poll: Sarah – 79%, Hillary – 7%

Hat/Tip to Lance Thate at Of course this is a very unscientific poll, but it makes you wonder what a head-to-head match up between the two of them would be like, huh? Hillary Decimated by Palin in Today’s Poll The media and party polls continue to play each other off with this candidate or that one being beaten by Hillary. When another candidate beats Hillary, there is the proverbial declaration of “within the margin of error too close to call”. This is a never ending theme to fill airtime. The Town Criers ask you to consider their random poll. […]

Ted Cruz To Announce Presidential Bid Monday

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Looks like Ted Cruz is going to make it official. If so, he’ll be the first one to officially throw his hat into the ring. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz plans to announce Monday that he will run for president, becoming the first high-profile Republican to enter the 2016 contest.  Cruz has hinted openly for months about his intentions to seek the GOP nomination, and his plan to jump into the race formally was confirmed by a strategist for the first-term Republican senator, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity so as not to preclude […]

Trump To Celebrity Apprentice: “You’re Fired!”

  Hat/Tip to Newsmax. It’s all but official, we’re going to have a real estate mogul, billionaire, television star running for President in 2016. Donald Trump announced Wednesday that he will form a presidential exploratory committee in anticipation of joining the race for the 2016 Republican nomination. “I am the only one who can make America truly great again,” the Republican businessman and reality television star declared in a statement announcing the move. While a step short of a formal campaign launch, the formation of an exploratory allows him to begin raising money and hire staff as he weighs a […]

Top 30 Hollywood Conservative Celebrities: A Newsmax List

Hat/Tip to John Blosser at Newsmax. The days of Hollywood reflecting everyday America’s patriotism are long gone. Yes, gone are the stars who proudly served their country and then came home and made movies which also served America’s interests. Gone are names like Jimmy Stewart, Ernest Borgnine, James Arness, Richard Attenborough, Steve McQueen, Alan Ladd, Lorne Greene, Peter Graves, Eddie Albert, Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Clark Gable and even Elvis Presley. No, now Hollywood is the safe haven for ultra liberals who make money by selling their world view of what America is supposedly about. Now we have names like […]

Must See Video: Tea Party Nation Founder – GOP Collapse Imminent

Hat/Tip to Sean Piccoli at Newsmax. had this to say about the demise of the Whig Party which was brought about, in part by the birth of the Republican Party: Ultimately, however, the Whigs are best understood as an American major party trying to be many things to many men, ready to abandon one deeply held ‘conviction’ for another in the drive for political power. The party died not because its unique aura no longer appealed to voters but because it could not cope effectively or persuasively with what after the Compromise of 1850 became the great issue of […]

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  “… 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: […]

January 23, 2012 Republican Debate: Live Feed UPDATE: Missed the Debate? Watch it Here! Also, some Analysis

Here is the live feed for the GOP debate in Florida… Visit 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.
