Ben Stein: WE’VE FIGURED HIM OUT

Posted by Stephen on February 11, 2012

By Ben Stein

Why was President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized medicine bill passed? Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:

The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. (Pig in a poke means: an offering or deal that is foolishly accepted without being examined first. A poke means sack.)

They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

Townhall.com: Don’t Dis Cain

Posted by Stephen on October 15, 2011

By John Ransom

For political professionals it’s tempting to write off Herman Cain’s candidacy as a surge that will eventually wash back out to sea.

But that would be a mistake.

Cain has two things going for him that have intersected in time and could make his candidacy truly historic- unlike the canned, Nobel-prize winning infomercial Democrats put on for the mile-high, but inch deep Barack Obama.

Change?

Obama’s really about more of the same: more government, more power, more money, more fundraising, more problems, more regulations. Nothing has changed in Washington; it’s only that the checks are bigger.

Shapiro: ‘Rick Perry: Obama’s Worst Nightmare’

Posted by Stephen on August 18, 2011

By Ben Shapiro

Rick Perry’s entry into the Republican nomination process has transformed the 2012 election into a truly memorable contest. Before his entry, conservatives were stuck with a choice between a hard-nosed newcomer with just two House elections under her belt and a penchant for occasional gaffes, and a smooth-talking corporate type who fathered ObamaCare and ranked 47 out of 50 in state job growth as governor of Massachusetts — hardly inspiring options.

Perry changes the game. This election cycle is going to be about two main issues: the economy and the nature of what America will look like. Perry is an advocate with a record on both scores.

Larry Elder: Democrat ‘Budget Plan’: Attack the Tea Party and Misquote Reagan

Posted by Stephen on July 28, 2011

To hear Democrats tell it, two things cripple the chance for a budget deal: the dastardly tea party, and the GOP’s failure to understand that its beloved Ronald Reagan was actually militantly pro-tax.

Gag me.

Racketeering Charges against SEIU; What Does Obama Know?

Posted by Stephen on July 28, 2011

By John Ransom at Newsmax.com

United States District Judge Claude Hilton, acting in the eastern district of Virginia, has ruled that the French-based food service and facilities management company Sodexo can proceed with an extortion claim against the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

The SEIU, which has strong ties to the Obama administration, has been accused of using ties to the federal government to harass companies such as Sodexo. The alleged methods include using regulatory or government action to pressure or embarrass the company or its employees.

Atheist Dave Silverman is twisting the Constitution and attacking your rights

Posted by Stephen on July 27, 2011

When I went to visit the site of the World Trade Center after 9/11 I experienced moments that are hard to put into words. It was powerful. It was sad. It was moving in a way I can never really explain. It was also inspirational.

Standing with my face pinned to the chain link fence that surrounded the site, my heart beat with such verocity I felt as though it might explode. My eyes fixed on one object in the midst of twisted steel, dirt and massive pieces of broken concrete. I fought back tears. I wanted to climb the fence and make my over to this singular object standing alone in a field of rubble. It amazes me, even today, how impacting the sight of two pieces of steel continues to be.

Now Dave Silverman, head of The American Atheists, wants to take that memory away by filing suit to remove two pieces of steel that he has decided prevents him from expanding his atheist viewpoint.

Obama playing political games while foregoing leadership

Posted by Stephen on July 27, 2011

What do you do when you are a failure as a leader? You use smoke and mirrors to manipulate people around you. You play games to convince others that you have a plan and play blame games when people ask you where the plan is.

If you don’t believe me, just watch obama in the White House. If you need proof, listen to obama wax on about the looming August 2 deadline.

Ron Paul: ‘It’s Going to End Very Badly’

Posted by Stephen on July 15, 2011

By Jim Meyers and Kathleen Walter

Republican Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul tells Newsmax he will vote against any attempt to raise the debt ceiling and says a proposal to allow the president to raise the ceiling is “capitulating” in the debt debate.

The Texas lawmaker also warns that continuing to run up the federal debt will eventually lead to a “dollar crisis,” while insisting that a tax increase will be very bad next year for Republicans who support it.
