Change, Intervention, and Dependency

The concept of the government “solving” all the problems of the world has crept into our society over time. With every new program, every new entitlement, the public has  gradually become accustomed to the government solving the ills of the world. And what of fact that the government seemed to make all of these problems worse? Well, that’s neglected. After all, the government is taking care of it-I don’t have to worry about it, right? Starting with the “progressive” movement in the late 19th century and accelerating greatly since the great depression, the government has vastly increased it’s meddling in […]

An Ode To The Odious

Original Post:  Be Sure You’re Right, Then Go Ahead

Taking the Senate Doesn’t Matter

I’m writing here because I can – it doesn’t mean that we’re returning to full time writing. To the point.  A lot of you out there are putting your support behind McConnell and Cochran in order to assure a majority in the Senate.  Let me stop you from making that mistake by laying out some reasons not to and then explaining why getting them out is more important than taking the Senate. First, what they did in Mississippi is as insulting as it gets.  Even Hillary Clinton spoke positive of the GOP going after true conservatives and “expanding their base” […]

Mississippi Mud

“In light of last night’s election results in Mississippi, there is one question every conservative should be asking: How much longer can a party survive when its leadership is inexorably against the ethos of its base?” –  Daniel Horowitz “The GOP respects no truth, has no honor, is without any principle or standard of decency.” — Rob Cunningham “The Republicans have become the party of lobbyists, most of whom were on twitter celebrating their purchase.” – Erick Erickson “Republicans and democrats, democrats and republicans, what’s the difference? Neither represent the American people or give one big crap about defending individual […]

From Dirty Harry to Fraidy Cat

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Harry Reid sees the writing on the wall. His precious position of leadership is slipping from his gnarled hands and he is blaming anyone and everyone but himself. “Polling is close in 11 states, and only six seats protect us from Republican control over everything from the future of healthcare reform to the next Supreme Court nomination,” Reid states in a mailing on Friday. “The Koch Brothers and Karl Rove are pouring a mountain of cash into taking over the Senate.” He notes that winning four tightly contested states “is essential if we’re going to stop them.” […]

Tea Party Speaks – Eric Cantor is out!

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Tea Party Claims Huge Scalp as Cantor Crashes in Primary The reports of the Tea Party’s death are greatly exaggerated. It is alive and well in Virginia, and it took Eric Cantor as it’s next victim. In the most stunning upset of the midterm election season, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was crushed in the Virginia Republican primary Tuesday by little-known tea party-backed challenger Dave Brat. With 90.2 percent of the vote counted, Brat had 55.4 percent to Cantor’s 44.6 percent. “I know there’s a lot of long faces here tonight,” Cantor told shocked supporters in a […]

Pat Quinn: Latest in a long line of crooked Illinois Governors

In 1968, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner, Jr (D) was caught accepting bribes from a race track owner and subsequently spent three years in prison, being released because of terminal cancer. Fearing impeachment, he resigned before he went to prison.   If you were in Illinois in the ’70s, then chances are you saw commercials for Dan Walker (D) in his bid for governor. He was walking across Illinois, talking with folks and generally bad mouthing the Daley political machine which had endorsed Lt. Gov. Paul Simon. He defeated Simon in the primary and went on to win the general election. […]

Video: Students Shocked to Hear What Hillary Said

This is an excellent video that shows not only the institutional bias that colleges foist upon our young people, but it also shows how much of  a pass they are willing to give Democrats. At first, when MRCTV’s Dan Joseph read this quote, the students virtually all said that it sounded like something “any Republican,” or Mitt Romney, or Rick Santorum might say. “Marriage has got historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time, and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman.” He then asked […]

Mark Levin Slams GOP as ‘French Republicans’ at NRA Convention

Conservative radio icon, Mark Levin was a guest speaker at the National Rifle association’s annual convention Friday, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. He only spoke for a little over 10 minutes, but just like a scatter gun, he hit a lot of targets. Now it’s obvious to many of us that we live in a post-Constitutional period. This has been the objective of the Democrat Party for a century. Meanwhile, the other party acts like a bunch of French Republicans, confounded, confused, not sure what to do. They’re looking for a new agenda, they’re looking for a […]

The real attack on women: Women’s income suffers under Obama

It’s another attack on women!!! The GOP takes women for granted and expects them to stay at home! Heck, they even say that Republican women are… attacking women. Yeah, I know. That’s a real head scratcher. Former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land is running for the U.S. Senate as a Republican and shockingly, her Democratic opponent Rep. Gary Peters is accusing her of waging a war on women (Democrats are being really original with their attack strategy this year). Now, Land is taking on the issue directly with her first campaign ad openly mocking Peters for accusing her, […]

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:    

Who Brought Down the Deficit? (Hint: Their initials are TP)

In his first year in office, President Obama gave us the insanely huge, unprecedented deficit of $1.3 TRILLION. Oh he tried to blame it on his predecessor, George W. Bush (a mantra he’s since perfected), but the stark truth is that he and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and then Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi all conspired to throw mountains of debt onto the backs of taxpaying American citizens. A budget deficit of nearly half a trillion dollars is hardly something to cheer about, but the big decline in federal red ink as a share of our national output […]

Boehner & Establishment GOP Declare War on the Tea Party

“I have made it clear that I have great respect for the tea party and the energy they brought to the electoral process,” said Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R) Ohio to reporters in February of this year. Then, in a statement that more resembled his famed crying incidents, he went on to whine, “My gripe is with some Washington organizations who feel like they’ve got to go raise money by beating on me and others.” That’s what politics is all about, I thought. But it seems the establishment GOP takes offense to being reminded that their constituencies would […]

Story Update: Fellow Democrat Blasts Kathleen Kane for Refusing to Prosecute PA Democrats for Accepting Bribes

The other day, we covered that investigators caught several democrat state representatives on audio or video, taking bribes in exchange for votes.  Then, when Kathleen Kane took over as  PA AG, she killed the investigation, calling it racist.  Now, the democrat DA from Philadelphia is blasting Kane for letting crooked politicians off the hook… Prosecutors almost never go to war against each other. But in Pennsylvania, Democratic attorney general Kathleen Kane is being brutally criticized by Seth Williams, Philadelphia’s district attorney and a fellow Democrat. Williams is upset that last year one of Kane’s first acts in office was to […]

Did The RNC Give Up Its Right To Challenge Certain Voter Fraud In 1982?

Asylum Watch is grateful to Adrienne at Adrienne’s Corner for bringing this story carried by Nox and Friends to our attention. This is another of those stories that belongs in the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not category. From Nox and Friends we learn: Here’s how the whole debacle started: during the 1981 New Jersey gubernatorial election, the DNC and the New Jersey Democratic State Committee (DSC) brought an action against the RNC and the New Jersey Republican State Committee (RSC) in the U.S. District Court in New Jersey accusing them of discrimination against minority voters. So, what were those dastardly […]

Conservative Blacks Talk About democrat Hate

The GOP recently had awards for black Conservatives, who were interviewed regarding the challenges of supporting freedom… MRCTV was in attendance at the awards ceremony and saw hundreds of black conservatives who were outspoken in their belief that modern liberalism is a destructive force to the black community and to the nation as a whole. However, despite a willingness to fight for conservatives values in the Obama era, many of the attendees we spoke to told us that they had been called vicious names and subjected to ridicule due to their conservative leanings.  “Oreo” and “Uncle Tom” were some of […]

Tolerant Liberals Celebrate the Death of ‘Racist’ Shirley Temple: ‘F*ck Shirley Temple’

Just when you thought maybe, just maybe, that liberals had anything even remotely resembling a heart, they attack Shirley Temple in death.  Apparently, she was a racist, as she was a Conservative.  Twitchy has more… And now, to the racism… So, even in death, liberals will attack an American icon, even Shirley Temple.  All in the name of hatred.

It Was 50 Years Ago Yesterday…Can’t Blame the Beatles

“A few years ago, I spoke with a 50-something Cuban who left the island recently. We spoke about the repression, censorship of the press and the food shortages. Then he said this: ‘You know one more thing I hate the Castro dictatorship….they denied me The Beatles’” – Silvio Canto Jr. “Music is the art of thinking with sounds.” – Jules Combarieu “On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.” – Hunter S. Thompson “Most people my […]

My Country ‘Tis Of Thee; Sweet Land Of Amnesty …

“The Republican leaders, such as they are, are under considerable pressure from big-business interests — not the small-business interests that are the natural Republican constituency — to open the gates for another wave of cheap and easily abused labor.” – Wes Pruden *** “Nobody, even those who want to get this done, trusts the president. And I understand it, because I don’t either.” – Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart It’s a new year, and with it comes the inevitable blooming of the gelatinous zooplankton otherwise known as the Republican leadership (“Bloom” is usually used for a large group of jellyfish that gather […]

Simple Questions About Obamacare

To the American Left, please answer a few questions about Obamacare. How can the ACA be so good when it is going to drive tens of millions of Americans out of their existing coverage when the employer mandate kicks in?   What about the mandate forcing folks to act against their faith? Their 1st Amendment rights are violated under the ACA by making contraceptives, sterilization and aborto-facient drugs are mandatory for employers to provide.   What about the over 20 new taxes that are hitting the American people for a half a trillion dollars? These are levied against medical innovators, […]
