Best Week Ever!

Pundit Charles Krauthammer says this has been one of the best weeks for Conservative in a long time.

At risk Democrats seeking to extend the GW Bush tax cuts

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

This bit of news must be like a capitalist stake through Obama’s socialist heart.

Congressional democrats, who see themselves at risk in the 2010 election, are calling for the tax cuts of former President George W. Bush to be extended for at least another two years.

The so called “leadership” of congressional democrats and our Dear Leader would much rather see across the board tax hikes place on the American People by letting the G.W. Bush era tax cuts expire.

If Barack Hussein Obama is at all interested in keeping his promise of “no new taxes” for anyone making less than $250,000 a year, he has no choice but to call for an extension of the President George W. Bush tax cuts.

Detroit, the result of decades of liberal policies

Steven Crowder, of PJTV, takes a look at Detroit, a city run into ruins by liberal democrat policies.

Not the change you were looking for

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

As I have pointed out before, our Dear Leader‘s “jobs created or saved” numbers are smoke and mirrors at best.

So how is the Obama White House going to deal with the case of fraud they tried to foist on the American people? Well, based on past behavior, openness and transparency wasn’t anywhere on their list.

Brett Blackledge, of the AP, explains how Team Lightbringer is going to hide their incompetence now.

The White House has abandoned its controversial method of counting jobs under President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus, making it impossible to track the number of jobs saved or created with the $787 billion in recovery money.

Despite mounting a vigorous defense of its earlier count of more than 640,000 jobs credited to the stimulus, even after numerous errors were identified, the Obama administration now is making it easier to give the stimulus credit for hiring. It’s no longer about counting a job as saved or created; now it’s a matter of counting jobs funded by the stimulus.

That means that any stimulus money used to cover payroll will be included in the jobs credited to the program, including pay raises for existing employees and pay for people who never were in jeopardy of losing their positions.

That’s right. The “open and transparent” Obama administration is now going to take credit for “saving or creating” jobs that already exist.

What is clear, is that Obama’s team of Socialists are trying desperately to hide obvious fact that the democrat “porkulus” bill was an utter and complete failure at the stated goal of “stimulating” the economy.  It has been a job killer, not a job creator, and the Team Lightbringer and their co-conspirators in the democrat congressional “leadership” are now trying to make it impossible to accurately track the effect of their pork laden payouts have on the job market, and the economy.

Friday B-Movie Pick: Chocolate

Friday, January 22nd, 2010


So-so story, slow start, and then really cool martial arts action. Yanin Vismitananda stars as Zen, the mildly retarted girl who learns kung fu by watching movies. She doesn’t have many lines, but oh, she kicks a lot of ass. The fights played tribute to Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan movies. There is even a battle between her and another autistic kung fu fighter. Not very PC, but frag it, it was really well done.

Air American is shutting down

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Color me not surprised, the far left extremist Air America radio network is shutting down because they can’t operate at a profit.

A memorandum was distributed to the staff at Air America Media this afternoon. It read in part:
“It is with the greatest regret, on behalf of our Board, that we must announce that Air America Media is ceasing its live programming operations as of this afternoon, and that the Company will file soon under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code to carry out an orderly winding-down of the business.”

The memo was signed by Charlie Kireker, the Chair of Air America Media.

I guess there were no more inner city kids they could steal money from this time.

Olbermann proves Prof. Reynolds right once again.

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Professor Glenn Reynolds, also known as the Instapundit, made the following correct prediction back on June 7, 2008:

I can think of no better reason to vote against Obama than the prospect of an administration where any criticism of the President is treated as racism.

Once again, he is being proved correct.

This time by MSNBC’s resident nutcase, Keith Olbermann:

OLBERMANN: The Republicans and the Tea Partiers will tell you what happens tonight with Scott Brown tonight, whether he wins or comes close, is a repudiation of Obama policies, and surely one of Obama’s policies from the viewpoint of his opponents is that it’s okay to have this sea change in American history, to have an African-American President. Is this vote to any degree just a euphemism the way state’s rights was in the 60s?

FINEMAN: Wow, that is a good question.

Ed Morrissey interjects reality into Olbermann’s rantings:

Yes, because the state that gave Barack Obama a 26-point win in November 2008 has suddenly discovered its inner Bull Connor. That’s not “a good question,” it’s a baldfaced smear on the people of Massachusetts. They elect one Republican, and suddenly in Keith Olbermann’s eyes, everyone there wears a hood and burns crosses. It’s absurd, and Fineman should have said so immediately instead of playing along with Olbermann’s vicious fantasy world in which 201o Massachusetts 0has become 1966 Mississippi.

These MSNBC Moonbats really have gone off the deep end. They are actually flat out calling pickup trucks symbols of racism. These guys are seriously off their meds.

Change comes to Massachusetts!

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

It’s a bright and glorious day here in the People’s Commonwealth! Over 20% of the registered democrats here joined the sane people and voted for Republican Scott Brown to fill the seat of the late Teddy Kennedy in the United States Senate.

This wasn’t just a case of the democrat Martha Coakley running a really lousy campaign (which she did) or the fact that she was a weak candidate (she was); this was also a direct message to our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama. The voters of Massachusetts just let BHO know that Socialism isn’t the change we were looking for.

How could this happen in the oh so liberal Massachusetts? We residents of the Commonwealth got a sneak preview of ObamaAmerica with our own worthless Governor, Deval “Together We Can” Patrick. Patrick had zero executive experience (none in the private sector or in any government job) when he took over the Governor’s office. His socialist policies, along with his kowtowing to the state employee unions and raising taxes while the state hemorrhages high tech jobs, have given us a unique perspective of what allowing our Dear Leader to implement his socialist policies will do to the country.

This election also proves that Obama has no coattails. Coakley was third democrat candidate that Obama when out to stump for who lost! Yup, Obama is a three time loser! Actually he’s four for four in loses if you count the trip he and Empress Michelle made (on separate planes) to Copenhagen in their attempt to bring the Olympics (and all that lovely graft money) home to Chicago.

Obama has a choice to make now.  Clinton or Carter? When Billy Jeff Clinton got his ass handed to him in the 1994 midterm  elections, he ditched the far left, went centrist and saved his image and got re-elected.  The man actually managed to take personal credit for signing most of the Republican’s “Contract with America” list into law, completely stealing their thunder!  Jimmy “Worst President in the last 50 years” Carter on the other hand descended even farther into a far left death spiral, resulting in him getting his ass handed to him in the 1980 elections.

Which way will Obama go? Personally, my take is that he’s no Bill Clinton.  Barack Hussein Obama has never held a real job in his life and has never had a single executive position before becoming the head of the executive branch of the United States government.  He’s been wrapped in a far left socialist cocoon his entire life.  So ya, I’m betting he’s gonna go Carter big time, with the same results.

History is made!

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Republican Scott Brown has defeated democrat Martha Coakley in the special election to replace the late Senator Ted Kennedy.

This is despite having our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama, and former President Clinton come here to the People’s Republic to stump for Coakley.

So, this is the third democrat candidate that BHO has visited and campaigned for.  All three have lost.  He’s four for four if you count his trip to Copenhagen and not getting the Olympics for Chicago.

The democrats will try to deny this simple fact, but the truth is that this election is very much a vote against Obama’s failed administration and policies.  He can try to deal with this reality or continue to attempt to drive the country down the wrong path.

Even more raw hatred from the left

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid should publicly apologize for the rantings of MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann and condemn it as hate speech.

This pattern of behavior is deeply disturbing.
