Dictatorship we can believe in

Barack Obama wants to be president.  Given his authoritarian tendencies, will that be enough for him?

Between a rock and a hard place

Poor Hillary.  Poor Obama.  Poor Democrats.  The one thing they have in common is that they are caught on the horns of a dilemma when it comes to Obama’s choice of running mate.  I can’t imagine that Hillary would accept the position, given that she would then likely have to wait another eight years before she gets another shot at the Big Prize.  In 2016 she will be 69 years old and for her a run for the presidency would be an uphill battle all the way.  The only circumstances under which I can see Mrs. Clinton accepting the spot as number two would be if she had some prior knowledge that Barack Obama would not live to finish his first term.

U.S. Helpless To Help Georgia?

by JR Dieckmann
Why is the American left not reacting to the Russian invasion of Georgia in the same way that they reacted to the American invasion of Iraq? Where are the liberal protesters gathering in the streets and burning the Russian flag in objection to this “unjustified and illegal” invasion? Where is all the shouting that Georgia doesn’t have WMDs, a nuclear program, or ties to al Qaeda? But more importantly, why isn’t the U.S. doing more to help Georgia repel the Russian invasion of their country, as we did when Iraq invaded Kuwait?

Russian TV Sounds Like Soviet TV

Have you ever heard of Gloria La Riva of the Party for Socialism and Liberation? If you were a faithful viewer of Russia Today, an English-language TV propaganda channel for the Russian government, you would learn that she is running for president of the U.S. and is an expert on the crisis in Georgia who believes that the U.S. is involved in the region only because of oil.

A Conservative In Los Angeles

Conservatives are not allowed in Los Angeles. At least not in what is termed ‘polite society.” I found this out the hard way.

I Smell a Clinton Coup Brewing

After Barockstar’s near fatal empty suit performance at Saddleback Saturday, the Obama spin machine is in damage control overdrive. I wonder if they‘ve had time to realize that they have been triangulated by the Clinton war room and set up to take a fall at the DNC convention?

Ever Been Blitzed by a Wolf?

- Satire -
This is not meant to demean Wolf Blitzer, CNN’s top political analyst and part-time kosher food vendor. He is probably a perfectly fine and decent chap, worthy of every wooden nickel he can extort from the corrupt moguls who run CNN and Time Magazine.

Rights for ALL Religions or forced rights for Islam?

It’s about time we rush in and formally protect all the main Religions of the world isn’t it?  In this internationally minded time we need the U.N. behind such a push don’t we?  What better group within the U.N. to make such a resolution to protect ALL Religions than the OIC, The Organization of the Islamic Conference.  They are the largest lobbying body within the U.N. made up of mostly Muslim countries, throughout the Middle East, Asia and South America.  They are calling this resolution “Combating Defamation of Religions.”  Doesn’t that sound fabulous?  Maybe there might be some fair ball on the Religious playing field finally.  Yes?  Yes?

Lawbreakers are Victims, according to the Associated Press

Perhaps it’s time for an in-depth study of America’s worst news-gathering organization, the Associated Press, also known as AP. AP has perfected the Orwellian use of language whereby a thing can be made into its opposite. Think “war is peace” and “freedom is slavery.”

Obama Accuses National Right to Life of Lying

Last week the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) released documents proving that Barack Obama has been blatantly covering up his actions as an Illinois state senator to actively defeat legislation to protect the lives of born, living, breathing babies who survive abortion attempts.

Obama: Win Or Lose

I’m not sure we’ve seen a generational shift like the one we’re experiencing today. As far as my limited perspective goes, the next generation takes control and life goes on. However, things are looking quite different as this whole Obama phenomenon plays itself out. This incoming generation is exhibiting the humility of a lion in a field of goats.

McCain Outs NBC’s Obama Crush

The Clintons made it clear that the mainstream media had an Obama crush. If you believe some of the recent polling on the matter, the American people believe it as well. And it was only a matter of time before some dunderhead like Andrea Mitchell let the cat out of the bag, whining that John McCain could be doing something unfair to hurt (what appears to be) her candidate of choice.

Obama’s Communist Cover-up Continues

In a surprising admission that could become a major scandal in the presidential race, Barack Obama’s 40-page so-called “rebuttal” to Jerome Corsi’s book, The Obama Nation, acknowledges for the first time that the senator once had a personal relationship with identified Communist Party USA (CPUSA) member Frank Marshall Davis, a key high-level operative in a Soviet-sponsored network in Hawaii.

For The General Welfare Of The Country

By JR Dieckmann
For far too long, Congress has been violating the Constitution by passing legislation that gives them powers that were never authorized by the Constitution. In every case, those powers represent rights that were intended to be reserved to the states and to the people.
