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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

IRS and Treasury Department Conspired to Target Conservatives “Off the Record,” According to Emails

During his Stuper Sunday interview with Bill O’Reilly, President Obama maintained that there was no corruption in the IRS’s treatment of Conservative groups.  Here are his comments… “Not even a smidgen of corruption.”  However, this story doesn’t go away because more and more evidence of corruption continues to emerge.  Steve, from America’s Watchtower, has more… According to this article it now appears as if Lois Lerner was conducting off the record talks via email to use the IRS to stifle conservative opposition to the Democrats in 2012. The Obama administration’s Treasury Department and former IRS official Lois Lerner conspired to draft new 501(c)(4) […]

Will Fox Again be Targeted by the Obama Administration?

If you recall, right after Obama was elected, the new administration declared the Fox News was not a news network, and sought to exclude them from anything in the new administration.  Of course, Fox covers stories that the rest of the networks refuse to cover.   That, and they refuse to lie for team Obama.  Given that history, and other, more recent events, and you’ll agree with Wyblog’s assessment of the situation… Will the FCC shut down Fox News now that Obama has blamed them for all his problems? It’s not without precedent. Obama has gone out of his way to […]

Karl Rove Declares War on Tea Party: Fundraising Drops by 98%

As so many people, including myself, have been pointing out, it seems that the establishment GOP is busily waging war against their own base.   The Tea Party movement had activated the Conservative base of the party in ways hadn’t been seen since the election of Ronald Reagan.  As such, the party establishment decided that the base must be “put in their place,” so they could return to voting for a “softer form of socialism.”   Karl Rove, know as the “evil emperor,” for his handling of the Bush presidency, was appointed to, or decided to, attack Tea Party oriented candidates all […]

Outstanding SOTU Responses

I will guarantee you that these common sense responses to the SOTU will never be seen or noted on a dinosaur media source.  Take a look  at this video, and you’ll know why… These folks sound like Tea Party supporters to me.  They launched a criticism of the SOTU that most any Conservative or Libertarian would applaud. I guess that means they’re racists, right? H/T: Allen West

An Open Letter to the GOP Establishment

As the policies and actions of the Obama Administration have become increasingly recognized as destructive, the Republican Party establishment 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 are multiple reasons 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 of Conservative principals.  After George W. Bush was elected, government continued to […]

The Year That Was: 2013, Top Stories

I think it would be safe to say the 2013 was a very strange year. From beginning to end, it supplied the conservative blogosphere with enough controversy, insanity, and flat-out moon battery to keep both writer and reader quite busy. So, off the top of my head, here are my thoughts on some of the top stories of 2013.   Our first story, and the one most covered here the Conservative Hideout, is ObamaCare. We predicted doom, gloom, and absolute failure for president Obama signature legislation. Let’s just say that it did not disappoint. We saw more job losses, hours […]

Democrats Losing Control of Racial Narrative? Al Sharpton Attends Town Hall, Attendee Calls for ‘Tea Party!’

This is another one of those posts that I saw before Christmas, and am just now getting to it.  It is all about a video from a Chicago Town Hall Meeting, featuring Al Sharpton.  Here is an excerpt, and the video… On Thursday, a town hall meeting hosted by Al Sharpton and the National Action Network to address gun violence exploded into a revolt against “Chicago Machine” politics, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and the aldermen in City Hall, with panel and audience members calling to vote out their elected officials.  One 82-year-old preacher even called for “Tea Party” style meetings in […]

GOP: Defending Main Street or Selling It Out?

In February of this year, Michelle Malkin wrote: “This is war.” She was referring to Karl Rove’s plan to use his Super PAC, American Crossroads, to put an end to the Tea Party movement. Rove and his big money backers want to make sure that statist GOP incumbents do not lose in the primaries to Tea Party backed conservative candidates. Ms. Malkin is right. It is war! And, now we learn that another regiment has joined in the battle to destroy the Tea Party conservatives. Maggie’s Notebook has what I consider a “must read” post for any conservative who wants […]

Soldiers Threatened if They Contribute to Christian or Tea Party Groups

The smears and “war” against the Tea Party has been going on since the inception of that entity.  The “war” against God via attacking the followers of his Son, is picking up steam under Obama.  Poor Richard’s News has more… from Washington Times: Don’t donate to the tea party or to evangelical Christian groups — that was the message soldiers at a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood said they received from a counter-intelligence agent who headed up the meeting. If you do, you could face punishment — that was the other half of the message, as reported by Fox News. The briefing […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Actor Chris Noth Thinks Tea Party Members Should be ‘Horsewhipped’

Another liberal has shown their true colors, and has engaged in “civil discourse.”  See what Chris Noth had to say about the Tea Party… Tolerant fellow, isn’t he? Jim Treacher, of course, had the appropriate response.  Folks like Noth would likely urinate all over himself if he actually tried to do that to a real human being, especially one that has a healthy love of the Second Amendment.  Of course, dimwits like Noth are one of the reasons that we have a Second Amendment. Note:  No, I’m not threatening to hunt Chris Noth down and do bad things to him.  […]

More Documents Show That IRS Intentionally Targeted the Tea Party

It seems that no matter how many denials are made, and how many times this is referred to as a”phony scandal,” evidence keeps piling up. It’s a lot of evidence ,for a phony scandal, that is.  The Lid has more… Liberals will be happy to learn that out of the 162 groups mentioned on the 2011 documents at least 11 of them are progressive organizations, giving them the ability to say,”See they weren’t targeting conservative groups.” But the American Center for Law and Justice, a nonprofit legal institute that represents 23 of the groups appearing on the IRS list, said […]

Becky Gerritson, Tea Party Organizer, Schools Congressiona Committee on Role of Government

This is a fine speech given by Becky Gerritson, a Tea Party organizer, and how she was treated by the IRS.  Also, note her thoughts on the role of government… I wonder how long it was before the first death threats came in?

Democrat Response to IRS Targeting of Tea Party Groups: “You asked for it!”

I guess they had it coming, asking for the same tax exempt status that liberal groups enjoy.  That’s what Democrat Congresscritter, Jim McDermott told Conservatives that were a tad bit upset that they were targeted by the IRS for scrutiny that an Obama allied group would never see.  Michelle Malkin has the video, and Doug Powers has the commentary… This is the equivalent of blaming the woman’s dress for her subsequent rape. This from Doug Powers… By the way, the Democrats have been grumbling ever since the conservative groups/IRS story came out a while back, claiming that liberal groups were […]

My Exclusive Interview with Former Acting IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller

Being a blogger means one thing:  Not making a profit Being at the forefront of breaking news stories.  And when the scandal of the IRS targeting groups opposed to the Obama administration broke I spared no expense to get to the bottom of the story.  Using my contacts in the government hookers I was able to get access absolutely no access to the movers and shakers in Washington.  And so, without further adieu I now present my exclusive interview with former acting IRS commissioner Steven T. Miller (pictured here) I want your blood. And any records that prove you oppose […]

IRS Acting as if it were Behind the Iron Curtain: Armed Security Intimidates Staffers

In a scene taken from some old movie about life behind the Iron Curtain, ABC reporters were allegedly tailed by armed security in an apparent effort to dissuade IRS employeess from speaking out about what they know about the Tea Party scandal.  Dan Riehl has more… Wow! This reads as though the IRS office in Cincinnati was moved somewhere behind the Iron Curtain when no one was looking! Welcome to Cincinnati – Ground zero of the exploding IRS scandal. Things started brewing earlier this month when Internal Revenue Service officials in Washington first admitted conservative groups were targeted for extra […]

Politics is Scandalous: Media Continues to Protect Obama

For weeks I’ve been visiting the Huffington Post and looking for stories on Benghazi.  To nobody’s surprise, I found almost nothing.  On the days that big stories broke on even the major news networks, nothing was to be found on the HuffPo.  The last few days have been quite different – Benghazi everywhere!  When the IRS and AP stories broke, nothing on HuffPo, but the stories are mentioned now.  Is the HuffPo that slow to respond to news? The stories are to be found on the biggest political blog in the world, but they were buried for bigger headlines like […]

IRS Harassment of Conservative Groups Extended to Other IRS Offices, Including DC

The IRS scandal took another turn late yesterday, when it was discovered that not only did the Cincinnati office take part, but others, including the DC office, were engaged as well.  Also, it is noted that the head of the IRS knew as well, and said nothing for quite some time. Legal Insurrection has more… The Washington Post reports tonight, IRS officials in Washington were involved in targeting of conservative groups: Internal Revenue Service officials in Washington and at least two other offices were involved in the targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, making clear the effort reached well […]

IRS Not Only Targeted Conservative Groups, But Illegally Released Their Information

It seems that the IRS scandal has widened a bit more yesterday, with revelations that not only did the IRS target Conservative groups, it also released information from those applications illegally.  Riehl World News has more… The same IRS office that deliberately targeted conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 election released nine pending confidential applications of conservative groups to ProPublica late last year. The IRS did not respond to requests Monday following up about that release, and whether it had determined how the applications were sent to ProPublica. This is from Propublica’s website… In the […]

IRS Targets Tea Party Groups, Jewish Groups

It has finally come out, that the IRS was intentionally targeting Tea Party groups.  I had initially covered that accusation in the March of 2012.  But, as we now know, it wasn’t just targeting tea party Groups, but also Jewish Groups!  The Obama administration’s Internal Revenue scandal grows. The IRS confessed this week that it aggressively targeted conservatives and tea party groups since 2011, not 2012 as was formerly reported. Now, it has been revealed that other IRS targets may have included Jewish groups. Shocking and chilling, tyrannical. This is America, not Soviet Russia, not China, not Cuba, not Venezuela. […]

Rand Paul Delivers Tea Party Response to State of the Union

Rand Paul has delivered a Tea Party response to the SOTU. I know I’m late getting to this, but I think it’s important that we go beyond the two party gridlock as to how to properly ruin the country.

Liberal Professor Engages in Projection: Blames Mass Murder on “White Privilege”

Imagine, if you will, that you are a liberal regressive, and want to keep your client classes on the government plantation.  You don’t want them to become independent, as they would then no longer need you.  If they don’t need you, you can’t control them, you can’t manipulate them, and they won’t vote for you or the candidate of your choice.  Your adversary is then Western Culture, and the idea that one can better themselves with work and that everyone has opportunity.  To combat that, you need to negate those ideas, and tell your client classes that no matter what […]

Student Sues School for Bullying: Was Abused and Threatened After Wearing Romney/Ryan Shirt to Class

For all of the talk about bullying, Conservatives get left out of the mix.  For the proof, take a look at this video, via Gateway Pundit… See, bullying is bad, unless you belong to the following “categories”… 1.  Conservatives 2.  Christians 3.  Jews 4.  Tea Party members 5.  NRA members You see, “anti-bullying measures” are meant to protect liberals from dissent (yes, they might protect some poor kids from general abuse-at least while someone is actually looking, but that is another story).  Anyone who disagrees with the regressive agenda are still subject to discrimination, abuse, death threats, violence, and the […]
