Conservatives want SMALL government, not NO government…

Conservatives want SMALL government, not NO government…:


"Once we get to where we all know we have nowhere near enough government...well, that’s something of a beginning, and we can start some major cutting from there..."



Sooner or later, it will have to be the American people themselves
that decide to put a stop to this out-of-control government
arrogance. Perhaps the sentiments of the late Lyn Nofziger will be
helpful at this point.

You will recall that Mr. Nofziger served as press secretary in Ronald
Reagan's administration as Governor of California and as a White
House advisor during the Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan
presidencies. Shortly before he passed away, he composed a short
treatise entitled "These Things I Believe." Here it is:


Senate session moved due to earthquake

Senate session moved due to earthquake:

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) will open Tuesday’s pro-forma session of the Senate at the Postal Square Building because of safety issues at the Capitol following a 5.9-magnitude earthquake.

Republicans have demanded that Senate Democrats hold periodic pro-forma sessions of the upper chamber to block President Obama from making recess appointments.

Senators from nearby states, usually Virginia and Maryland, oversee the pro-forma sessions, which typically last a few minutes..............................

9/11: A Conspiracy Beyond Theory

Of course the hijackers knew nothing about any plan to fly into buildings like kamikaze pilots on a suicide mission.


by Paul J Balles

Let’s say Mossad, Israel’s intelligence deceivers, speaking perfect Arabic and pretending to be Arabs, infiltrated an Al Qaeda cell and hatched a plan to highjack four planes; and that would show everyone how clever Al Qaeda was.
The biggest political mistake I’ve ever made was to vote for Barack Obama. I should have known that a really great campaign speaker and organizer would probably make an inept president.
All of Obama’s emphatic talk about change sounded appealing; even though Washington has proven so often that it’s incapable of changing. There are just too many self-interests needing trade-offs with other self-interests, none of which has public needs in mind.
The fact that Obama opposed the Iraq War carried a lot of weight with those who don’t believe America should mind everybody else’s business.

Dictator-in-Chief Obama and US Congress Collaborating to Destroy USA?| The Post & Email

The facts are now so obvious and blatant that even dyed-in-the-wool Obama sycophants should be able to see and hear the truth. What took the people of this country generations of their blood, toil and sweat to accomplish and build has been destroyed in less than four years.

The United States of America has been gutted of its financial resources, its people have had their rights to makes their own decisions about their lives (think ObamaCare, the First, Second and Fourth Amendments for starters) rescinded so that Obama and his cabal will decide for them, US citizens have had their jobs removed and so thoroughly decimated that they must now rely on the fewer and fewer still working and Obama’s good will (an oxymoron if I ever heard one) to survive.

And now Obama has decided–as he promised to do but, the leftist elite and enough mentally deficient American voters chose to elect him anyway–to shut down coal (even the refurbished “clean coal” plants) production operations by using his EPA regulation hammer to drive them out of business.

Remember that Obama couldn’t get his Cap & Trade through Congress, so he issued a dictatorial fiat. This is completely illegal and unconstitutional but…no one is stopping him............................


Third Party System Continues Today

Third Party System Continues Today:

Today it is unclear whether we have ushered in a new era of Republican dominance or whether we are slipping back into a decade or more of close elections and divided government without clear majority.

The appearance of third parties typically signifies coalition shifts and party realignments, at least if the major parties fail to take heed and co-opt third party positions or at least address the issues that give life to third party challenges........

7 Reasons Why Liberals Are Incapable of Understanding The World

7 Reasons Why Liberals Are Incapable of Understanding The World:

To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil. — Charles Krauthammer

Even liberals who've accomplished a lot in their lives and have high IQs often say things on a regular basis that are stunningly, profoundly stupid and at odds with the way the world works.

Modern liberalism has become so bereft of common sense and instinctually suicidal that America can only survive over the long haul by thwarting the liberal agenda. In fact, liberalism has become such a toxic and poisonous philosophy that most liberals wouldn't behave differently if their goal were to deliberately destroy the country. So, how does liberalism cause well-meaning, intelligent liberals to get this way? Well, it starts with...

Psychiatrists seek to destigmatize adult-child sex

Psychiatrists seek to destigmatize adult-child sex:

While a highly controversial campaign featuring doctors and psychiatrists seeks to normalize sexual activity between adults and children of almost any age, the principal expert investigator for a U.S. Justice Department study on child sex abuse warns that the pedophilia advocates are using the same strategy that was successfully employed to make homosexuality a classroom subject for small children in the nation's public schools.

Dr. Judith Reisman recently attended a symposium held by the "minor-attracted people" advocacy group B4U-ACT to disseminate "accurate information" on the position that pedophilia is just one more alternative sexual orientation.

"If a foreign country came in and did this to our nation, the nation would be outraged," Reisman told WND today about the B4U-Act event, also attended by J. Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action.......................


The speakers promoted the idea that the American Psychiatric Association should remove pedophilia from the list of mental defects in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Reporting from Washington— Texas Gov. Rick Perry, faulting much of what the federal government did in the 20th century, has called Social Security a "failure" and "an illegal Ponzi scheme" and also cast doubt on the constitutionality of federal laws on food safety, minimum wages, bans on child labor, environmental protection and Medicare.

Professor Obama Holds Forth on the Mandate

Professor Obama Holds Forth on the Mandate:

One reason the supporters of Obamacare were initially overconfident about its supposed invulnerability to legal challenges was their belief that the man who signed it into law was an expert on the Constitution. This misplaced faith was based on statements Obama himself made during his first presidential campaign. At a 2007 fundraiser, for example, he told his admirers, "I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution."

This claim turned out, of course, to be one of Obama's trademark shadings of the truth.

He was never a "professor" as genuine academics use the term.

He was, however, a part-time faculty member at the University of Chicago, where he occasionally subjected hapless students to pontifications on the nation's founding document.

Abracadabra! 'Obama's alias' vanishing quickly from Web

Abracadabra! 'Obama's alias' vanishing quickly from Web:

"Harrison J. Bounel," an alias identified for Barack Obama by debt-collection and skip-trace expert Albert Hendershot, is currently being scrubbed from professional databases, the investigator reports.

"I believe Obama supporters are trying to eliminate any and all evidence of Obama's shady past from all public databases," Hendershot told WND. "It's the only explanation for why the alias 'Harrison J. Bounel' has dropped from sight in database searches on public records done for Obama's Social Security number and home address in Chicago."

Hendershot documented his analysis in a report written for WND that can be read in its entirety here.

Get the inside details on what could be the most serious constitutional crisis in the nation's history, in "Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama is Not Eligible to be President," autographed by the author!

As seen in Exhibit 1, Hendershot has put together a chart that documents how he first found the Harrison J. Bounel name appearing in databases he was using to search properties in Chicago, and how he has worked with WND to make a series of previously unknown disclosures about the Obama home in Chicago's upscale Kenwood neighborhood at 5046 S.

Freeman to POTUS: 'Get pissed off'

Freeman to POTUS: 'Get pissed off':

When President Obama jumped on the back nine of the celebrity-clogged Vineyard Golf Club course on Sunday, he ran into none other than Morgan Freeman, Oscar winner and Obama backer.

Freeman, it turns out, was as free with advice for Obama as he was for Tim Robbins in “The Shawshank Redemption.” (POLITICO was holding outside the course in the pool van, told only that Obama was playing with his usual island foursome.)

But the deeply wired Boston Globe, invaluable for Vineyard gossip, caught up with Freeman at an event later in the day.

“What I wanted to tell him is to get pissed off, get fighting mad,” the actor told the paper. “But I know he won’t because he doesn’t think it’s politically smart.”

On Obama’s chances for reelection, Freeman added, “If I could vote for him 1,000 times, I would.”

“I think he’s been horribly sandbagged, and it makes me so angry,” he said................

Obama Smuggling Guns and Registering Yours

Obama Smuggling Guns and Registering Yours:

President Barack Obama wants you to believe that America's Founding Fathers were in error when they gave citizens the right to bear arms.

The Obama administration and even its Mexican counterpart have manipulated public opinion to believe that the cartel drug wars are being fueled largely by American guns. In support of that spin, they are trying to impose a new regulation that requires licensed firearms dealers in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California to report to the federal government whenever someone buys from them more than one semiautomatic rifle with certain characteristics.

Obama's Department of Justice essentially is amending the Second Amendment by changing the rules for gun sales in border states. While working under the guise of stopping illegal contraband and fighting drug cartels, the White House in reality is further imposing its gun control agenda on the American public through back-door rule-making. This is just one more example of the feds exceeding their powers and avoiding congressional permission. It is also another showing of complete disregard for the Constitution......................

West: Obama ‘shredding’ Constitution with new immigration rules

West: Obama ‘shredding’ Constitution with new immigration rules:

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) on Monday accused President Obama of “shredding” the Constitution by imposing new rules last week that allow a case-by-case review of illegal immigrants set for deportation.

“I think he absolutely is,” West replied in an interview with the conservative website NewsMax when asked if he thought Obama was “shredding” the Constitution with the decision.

“I think he’s shredding his responsibilities as the president, and his respect and regard of the Constitution,” West added.

West, who announced earlier in the day that he will not run for an open Senate spot in Florida, said he has noted a trend within the Obama administration of legislating through executive edict.

“It just once again shows that back-door nature,” West said. “We see it a lot with the regulatory process that’s coming out of the administration.”

Rick Perry: Middle Income Americans Don't Pay Enough Income Taxes [leftist spin, ie, lie]

Rick Perry:

Middle Income Americans Don't Pay Enough Income Taxes [leftist spin, ie, lie]:

I’ve been blissfully off the grid for the past few days, cycling in Western New York. (Allegany State Park is absolutely gorgeous. Made me be glad to be paying taxes in New York State.) I could forget about the debt ceiling fiasco, 9 percent unemployment, the tea party, runaway health spending, global warming, the NBA lockout…

But back in the real world, I learn from newly minted GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry what’s wrong with America—that middle income Americans don’t pay enough taxes. Really.

We’re dismayed at the injustice that nearly half of all Americans don’t even pay any income tax. (Quoted in this terrific Ruth Marcus column.)

We’re apparently not dismayed that more than half of all Americans have been in a 30-year recession with little or no income growth. We’re apparently willing to write off Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes, which are the big federal taxes for low- and middle-income Americans. A family of four earning $30,000 may pay no federal income tax, but it pays $4,590 in payroll taxes (including the employer’s share, which economists believe is ultimately paid by the employee in the form of lower wages). Payroll taxes are much bigger than income taxes for most families.

Actor David Cross To Olbermann: TV "Gets Rid" Of Elderly "Not Contributing Anything" (video)

Actor David Cross To Olbermann:

TV "Gets Rid" Of Elderly "Not Contributing Anything" (video):

Comedian and actor David Cross appeared on Current TV's "Countdown" program Monday evening to promote his upcoming movie and other gigs when the conversation turned to a recent study that watching one hour of television shortens your life by 22 minutes.

Cross was being very serious on how this would benefit his pocket because that would mean he would not have to pay for medical care of the elderly who are "not contributing anything." Keith Olbermann, the host of "Countdown," believes this is a Darwinian idea. Transcript below:

David Cross: "I don't mind, I like the idea -- or I'm comfortable with the idea that TV watchers are having their lives shortened because then you're talking about just hundreds of millions of really elderly people who are just going to watch TV anyway. And that's just a medical care that I'm going to end up having to pay for and they're just watching TV, they're not contributing anything.

Jim R. Schwiesow -- The New Age, It Stinks

I have been reading Mark Steyn’s book “America Alone” and find that we - Mr. Steyn and I - agree absolutely that we are presently witnessing the end of the world as we know it.

We have reached the same conclusion, but for different reasons. And then again it may be that what Mr. Steyn defines in his treatise as the reasons for the precipitous decline of the western world is just in fact an itemization of the symptoms of a world already doomed by divine purpose.

At any rate suffice to say that this erudite and gifted writer has precisely and accurately defined the major forces that are rapidly destroying the civilized cultures of the western world…and these are: democracy and multiculturalism. Or more precisely an ignorant elitist-driven socialist control over individuality and the spiritually bestowed personal prerogatives that moved the world from the dark ages and ushered in enlightenment and prosperity..........................

If Congress and federal law enforcement agencies will not abide by the Constitution and the rule of law, then ordinary Americans will go to Washington, D.C. and drag that criminal out of our White House.
We will not allow Barack Hussein Obama to contest the 2012 election.
According to the Constitution, he has never been eligible for the office of President.
Obama has presented a forged Certificate of Live Birth in order to continue perpetrating a criminal fraud on the American people.
He has committed identity theft by using a Social Security Number not issued to him. He has committed a felony by forging his Selective Service registration.
Every member of Congress and all federal law enforcement agencies know it.
They have violated their oaths of office and abdicated their responsibility to support and defend the Constitution and uphold the rule of law.
Some have committed Misprision of Felony by actively engaging in a cover-up of Obama’s crimes.
There are only two kinds of people left in Congress, the complicit and the cowards.

The Relevancy of Ron Paul vs. the Coming Irrelevancy of the Status-Quo by Susan Westfall

The Relevancy of Ron Paul vs. the Coming Irrelevancy of the Status-Quo by Susan Westfall:

Let’s begin with a Youtube video that made the rounds at a brisk pace last Sunday titled “Being Ron Paul: The Media Fix is In.”

It pretty much says it all and covers a variety of MSM contributions about the Straw Poll results. The ire and disgust at the pathetic and blatantly obvious removal or marginalization of Ron Paul’s close finish with Michelle Bachman is evident in the poster’s voice. That same sentiment was massively evidenced in the comments and responses to MSM articles and personal blog posts across the Internet world. The manner in which Matt Strawn reported the Straw Poll results live on CNN clearly announced the coming marginalization storm. Can anyone recall or point out another time in the recent history of Ames Straw Polls (or at any time in its history) when only the first place winner’s name was announced, followed immediately by the announcer exiting stage right briskly and wordlessly?

“Stunned” probably does not even begin to describe the reactions of millions of viewers to that event. Even the panel of commentators was thrown off stride.

Their reactions called to my mind a panel scene from the 2008 elections, when CNN was reporting the South Carolina primary.............................

More on the Electric Edsel by Eric Peters:

Well, here’s a surprise – the Chevy Volt electric car isn’t selling.

Only 3,200 of these $41,000 “economy” cars have found buyers so far – most of them probably in the Hollywood hills, where it is trendy for the rich to show green (Leonardo DiCaprio owns a $100k Tesla electric roadster).

But out in the real world, the idea of a $41k “economy” car doesn’t parse. Yes, the Volt is a brilliant piece of engineering.

But that’s neither here nor there if it costs more to operate than a standard economy car, which is ultimately the only criteria that matters as far as the marketplace viability of electric cars............


America Is Rotting While China Is Rising...

Prison Planet.com � America Is Rotting While China Is Rising:

The American people better wake up while there is still time.

America is literally rotting right in front of our eyes. Once upon a time, the greatest manufacturing cities in the world were in the United States.

One of the big reasons why the Allies won World War II was because U.S. factories simply pumped out far more stuff than anyone else did. Our forefathers built this nation into an industrial powerhouse, but now our formerly great manufacturing cities are rusting, rotting and falling to pieces as nations such as China wipe the floor with us on the global economic stage.

It is absolutely depressing to see what is happening to many of our most famous cities. For example, would you like to buy a house for less than $10,000? Just move to Baltimore. Of all the homes that have been sold in the city of Baltimore so far this year, one out of every ten has sold for less than $10,000. In fact, one home sold for just $10......................
