Democrats are engineering another energy swindle that will cost consumers and taxpayers

Remember The Sting, Oceans 11, Entrapment?

The “marks” were a bit unsavory, or rich guys or banks that “could afford” to get ripped off. The con artists were affable rogues, administering payback or playing Robin Hood. We rooted for the good guys, enjoyed the suspense, relished the climax, and had some laughs along the way.

Gov. Palin Was Great, Now Some Pointers For McCain

Despite the talking heads, who would have awarded the night to the pompous, condescending, finger wagging Sen. Biden had he spent the entire night doing a rendition of Porky Pig (which would have been characterized on TV news shows as “down to earth and in touch with all creatures of the world”), Gov. Palin blew her opponent away.  When one talking head read off a script that had either been penned or at least planned before the debate had even taken place, George Stephanopoulos was visibly surprised and almost demanded an explanation.  Of course, that was right after the debate, before he and other media men will have had a chance to “see the light.”

‘Having considered the evidence concerning these matters and the submission of counsel we accept that there is a great deal of suspicion as to the acting of Abu Talb and his circle, but there is no evidence to indicate that they had either the means or the intention to destroy a civil aircraft in December 1988.’ The Lockerbie Verdict, § 81

Banking and lending has become a losing game of Dominos in Vegas

Since when did common sense economics turn into a losing game of dominos on steroids?  We know that Banks loan and leverage out 10 to 1.  So when you come to a Bank and pencil a mortgage, they loan, gamble and leverage up to ten times on that loan, splitting, dissecting, creating new products out of pieces of the loan and continuing.  Are you dizzy yet?

Banking Bill Bails Out China

During a time when most of the commentary and news “analysis” has been in favor of the Wall Street takeover plan, Rep. Brad Sherman of California was on Larry Kudlow’s CNBC show on September 30 to cite evidence that the legislation potentially “provides hundreds of billions of dollars of bailouts to foreign investors,” including those in Communist China.

Memo to the McCain Campaign

imageYour mission is to recapture the initiative within a week by changing tactics. What you’re doing isn’t working. You need a surge, and soon.

So how do you do that?

Run new ads? Folks are weary of ads. That won’t help.

Hold press conferences to state positions?  The old big media won’t cover them.  You’ll be talking into a vacuum.

Wait for the next debate? Forget about it. By then, the election will be essentially over and your candidate the loser.

Somehow you have to make news that can’t be ignored by those who want you to lose. Consider this.

Say what you will about Bill O’Reilly, but he’s the only person who finally did what millions of conservatives have yearned to do. On the O’Reilly Factor last night, host Bill O’Reilly gave Rep. Barney Frank a very public spanking for “presiding over the largest financial failure of our time.”

Young, Vibrant Governor Palin KOs Old School Washington Liberal!

Proving beyond any shadow of a doubt that she is the most qualified candidate for the presidency, including Messrs. McCain and Obama, VP nominee Governor Sarah Palin scored an impressive victory over her weak opponent in the debate held Thursday evening.

Despite being handicapped by Gwen Ifill, an Obama operative and biased liberal from PBS, Governor Palin demonstrated in-depth understanding and mastery of a wide range of topics from national security to economic priorities, and in doing so established her superior qualifications.

Governor Palin’s performance was a moral victory for all women and proves that women are qualified to serve in the very highest capacities of government, despite the dismal showing of Nancy Pelosi in the U.S. House.

The Obama Youth

It really does seem that the more evil a movement is, the more likely it is to enlist children in its cause.  (Well, they really do make beautiful little human shields.)  Most of us have now heard about the “Sing for Change” video, in which 22 young, impressionable victims of misguided parents are singing a song in homage to Barack Obama as if he’s a god . . . or an extremely good imposter.

Appeasement and Democracy are Incompatible

Appeasement carries its own simple logic with it, the logic of the squeaky wheel getting the grease. Except with appeasement it is the knives, rioting mobs, machine guns, bombs and rockets that make the squeaking sound.

How Democrats See Their Base: Idiots, Minorities, GEDs, and Dropouts!

Liberal Democrats pride themselves as being the party of the “little guy,” the powerless, the abused, and penniless if you will.

But how do Democrats really feel about their core constituency behind closed doors and in correspondence marked Confidential?

Would you believe that in Colorado Democrats refer to their best and brightest as “Idiots, Minorities, GEDs, Dropouts..” ?

But of course they are! Anyone who votes for a Democrat is, by definition, an idiot!

You’re an Angry Feminist?  That’s so Cute

With winds of change rivaling Hurricane Ike, John McCain’s historic VP pick of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has blown away the left’s mask of “inclusive tolerance,” exposing an ugly and desperate countenance below. Flummoxed and frantic, their shameful attacks on Palin and her family have revealed that liberal Democrats, the mainstream media, and those malicious hacks in the “progressive” blogosphere are willing to navigate the deepest, darkest sludge of slash-and-burn politics to see their man, Barack Obama, elected President.
