…GLENN BECK – NRA STAND AND FIGHT RALLY
Odd, immediately after every terror attack or mass shooting, the Left goes straight for the blame Conservative bloggers, politicians, talk host card. They try to blame the NRA, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Ted Cruz, Rush, the Tea Party, etc. They do not wait for evidence before jumping off the Cliff of Conclusions. But, when the evidence begins to be discovered, and they are proven wrong, AGAIN, they immediately launch into do not jump to conclusion mode. Donald Douglas sums them up this way
Leftists truly are the scum of political life.
Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. Take David Sirota for example. After writing that he NEEDED the Boston terrorists to be White, after writing that it would be good if they were White, after making it ALL about race, Sirota has changed his tune
Our reaction to terrorism shouldnt be predicated on the demography of the terrorists. Sad that bigotry apparently obscures this simple truth
Egads, does this buffoon NOT recall writing the piece at Salon? Again, this is why I refer to Liberalism as an Ideology of convenience. They can just change their tune on a whim. But there is more from David
While media is trying not to assert motive, you’ll notice that nobody on TV is making ANY effort to respect a basic presumption of innocence
Now these terrorists who committed a monstrous act are victims in this idiot’s twisted, morally retarded mind, oh but it gets better!
Tweets/emails celebrating fact that suspects are (allegedly) Muslim suggests many white people were hoping that was the case. Question: Why?
So, he can write a column, based on nothing BUT holding out hope that the suspects would be White, but if anyone points out that these two are Muslims, well that is RAAAAACIST! And Sirota has company on the Hypocrisy Express. Check out Sally Kohn’s Tweet
Those rushing to assume motives based on where these guys were from would be cautioning restraint if suspects were from rural Montana
Actually Sally if they were from Montana YOU would be beating the door down to blame Conservatives, and Sirota would likely have had an orgasm over such news. I also love how Sally Kohn is apparently oblivious to the fact that radical Muslims tend to commit far more terror attacks than those Montana folks do. Jim Treacher has the best response to this
The people who’ve been aching for the #BostonMarathon bombing to be motivated by ideas they hate will now shame you for discussing motive.
If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses.
We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wouldn’t “increase our deficit by a single dime.”
Of course, he glossed over the inconvenient facts. He boasted about job creation, but didn’t mention that real unemployment is higher today than when he took office. He touted all those still undiscovered “clean energy” jobs without mentioning the tens of thousands of real jobs the Keystone Pipeline will create if he would simply allow it to be built. He sang of new energy development, but didn’t mention that new offshore leases for oil and natural gas drilling have declined a decimating 61% under his administration.
He talked about “helping” to build “a thriving middle class,” but didn’t address how the middle class is actually faring under his economic stewardship. This is important – his deception must be addressed: under his leadership, middle class families have seen the average price per gallon of gas increase 96%, the average cost of family health care premiums rise 24%, the annual cost per household from federal regulations rise to over $15,000, and real median household income decline $4,520. If this is what happens when he “helps” the middle class, then please, Mr. President, we implore you to stop “helping” us.
He talked about a “balanced approach to deficit reduction” without mentioning that $5.9 trillion has already been added to the debt since he took office. We’re $16.5 trillion in debt and he keeps digging the hole deeper! He didn’t mention his record trillion dollar deficits or the fact that his last proposed budget would add $9.2 trillion to the debt through 2022. His Democrat-controlled Senate hasn’t passed a budget in four years. That’s obviously not “responsible” or “balanced.” He said, “We can’t cut our way to prosperity.” Well, we definitely can’t get there by borrowing and spending money we don’t have on his “investments” that don’t work. If indiscriminately borrowing and spending money led to prosperity, then bankruptcy would be a sign of economic strength. But it isn’t.
A State of the Union address should give us a true picture of the direction in which we are headed. But we didn’t get the truth last night. And it WAS Orwellian.
What is the true state of our union? Though this may sound harsh, I’ll speak the truth here. We are a country going bankrupt to fund a bloated, distant, and often corrupt federal government led by venal politicians more concerned with paying off their campaign cronies and consolidating their own power than in preserving the constitutional republic that so many have fought and died for (including our brave men and women in uniform who were barely mentioned last night).
We are a country with an economy being stifled under the weight of a bankrupt and voracious federal machine demanding more taxes and burdensome regulations. Job creators are the ones stuck with the bill when Obama calls for “new revenue.” Their businesses bear the brunt of the nearly 87 million paperwork hours imposed by federal regulations in 2012 – annually costing them $1.75 trillion. And I haven’t even mentioned Obamacare yet, which looms like the dark cloud it is over our private sector. Is it any wonder why our economy is stagnant or why job growth is so anemic? President Obama’s “solution” to these problems is to make the federal government more intrusive, bankrupt, and controlling.
If we continue down the path Barack Obama has us on, the long-term forecast of the state of our union is not a pretty picture. Yet he merrily rolls along it, deceiving too many Americans into thinking that these are intelligent, economic, and ethical proposals.
Our President wasn’t candid with Americans about our forecast, but, interestingly, in a Q&A session last week, Paul Krugman, one of President Obama’s economic cheerleaders at the New York Times, was remarkably candid about where we’re headed.
When asked about our federal debt, he admitted that “eventually we do have a problem” especially because “the population is getting older” and “health care costs are rising.” So, what does he see as the solution to pay for all this? He admits that your taxes will rise. And worse:
“Surely in the end it will require some middle class taxes as well. We won’t be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes, not a huge one, but some increase in taxes on the middle class, maybe a value added tax. And we’re also going to have to make decisions about health care – not pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits. So, the snarky version I use, which I shouldn’t even say because it gets me in trouble, is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this.” (But wait, I thought there’d be no such thing as “death panels,” liberal liars?)
Mr. Krugman tried to portray this brave new world in the gentlest possible light, but it’s going to take quite a lot of “sales taxes” to meet the payments on the ever-increasing multi-trillion dollar debt we’re burying our kids and grandkids under. And with health care costs rising under Obamacare, obviously a lot of care will be rationed and even flat out denied by panels of faceless bureaucrats making life and death decisions for you and your loved ones. This is the long-term forecast for the state of America under Obama’s failed policies: middle class taxes and death panels.
Does that sound good to you? It doesn’t to me. So, we better get motivated to do something about it. We’d better get out of our post-election funk and wake up to the radicals’ reality being created as America gets “fundamentally transformed.”
Here’s the good news: President Obama is in many ways a lame duck president. None of his ridiculous ideas will come to pass via the legislative process. Of course, he may try to force them down America’s throat by imposing them through other means. But they can be undone if the right people are in position to undo them. He is very bold right now – some would say cocky – because of his November win, but there is another election around the corner, and we can check his boldness at the ballot box by electing constitutional conservatives. We must continue to affirm the fact that growing our bankrupt federal government is NOT the solution. Most of what the federal government does could be handled better on the individual, local, and state levels.
Our country didn’t weather a Revolution, two World Wars, a Civil War, a Great Depression, and countless other political and economic storms, just to be sunk by the dangerous policies of this current administration. We’re stronger than this. As President Reagan said, “I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing.”
So, do something. 2014 is just around the corner. Get motivated! Get organized. America, don’t retreat. In the words of yet another White House program, “Let’s move.”
I would be happy to see him in the race frankly. We need a real Conservative who can deliver the Conservative message in a positive manner, Paul fits that bill I think. Sure the media would try to trash him, as they do any Conservative who even thinks about running, and the Dems would bring out the Extremist Card to play, but so what. Frankly, I think it is too early for talking about 2016, remember we DO have the 2014 mid terms next year, but frankly, traffic is slow today, and a bit of Rand Paul can only help.
Looking at 2016, I hope that we can for ONCE have a field of Conservatives without a Moderate to screw it up, why yes, I am talking to you Chris Christie. And I hope that field of Conservatives can debate without trying to destroy each other with unimportant issues or emotionalistic tactics, and yes, that is meant for you Michelle Bachman And PLEASE, Ann Coulter just shut up this time, we really do not need you telling us who CAN, or CANNOT win. Sorry for the negative tone, but, I am sick, and also tired of Conservative candidates picking each other off so that we get struck with the candidate the Democrats WANT to run against. And yes, that means you Mitt, and you Mr. Maverick. Finally, I want, more than anything, for a candidate’s record, and accomplishments to matter, not style. Yes, I am talking to you GOP voters!
While I am at it, let me add a list of GOP candidates I do not want to see run
Mike Huckabee, do I really have to explain why?
Chris Christie. He is the fatter, less tan Charlie Crist
Sarah Palin. the media would make a circus out of this, I do not think she could win.
Jeb Bush, yes, I already said his name once but I REALLY do not want him to run.
Joe Scarborough. Do we really want that tool running?
Rick Santorum. Two words sweater vests! Plus he is a whiner.
ANY “Moderate Republican”.
Newt Gingrich. I said him just to aggravate Ed Daley.
Sure it is Andy, sure it is. I mean where else can readers learn about your obsession with Sarah Palin’s uterus?
After stints blogging at Time, the Atlantic, and the Daily Beast, Andrew Sullivan has announced he will be going back out on his own. Starting February 1, he will move to a new paid content model.
In return for purchasing a subscription, Sullivan promises his readers, “No corporate ownership, no advertising demands, no pressure for pageviews … just a concept designed to make your reading experience as good as possible, and to lead us not into temptation.”
For now, Sullivan is offering readers a chance to sign up for $19.99 a year, which he notes, “translates to $1.67 a month.”

C’mon Now, GOP, Don’t Go Wobbly on Us
by Sarah Palin on Tuesday, December 4, 2012 at 12:10pm
Please read and pass along this article. We send good conservatives to D.C. to fulfill the promises they made to the electorate, and yet when they stay true to their wordthe permanent political class in their own partypunishes them. This won’t be forgotten come 2014. Right now the GOP establishment is more concerned about the opinion of the media and the Georgetown cocktail circuit than they are “we the people” who hired them. For all this new talk of how the GOP needs a “populist movement,” it would do them good to remember they already have one; it’s called the Tea Party movement, and it won for them the majority they now enjoy in the House.

Just for the sake of argument, let me posit that John Boehner is NOT a sellout, a tool, a double agent, a doddering buffoon, a sad little throne-sniffer, a spineless sycophant, a Ruling Class meat puppet, and an obsequious piece of work.
Instead, let us assert that there is some sort of method to his madness, with some plan forthcoming:

I guess that headline might get me in hot water with the PC types, but, they are not too keen on me, or Ed so screw them. Stacy McCain points out that the newest polling is causing the Great 2012 Liberal Freak-Out! And, chief amongst those freaking out is none other than Trig-Truther Andrew Sullivan, who always sounds like he is freaking out to me.
They convinced themselves that Obama “won” Tuesday’s debate, butRomney actually gains in the first Gallup national tracking poll with post-debate reaction? Oh, boy.
UPDATE: Ace explains what happened:
The debate was not a victory for Obama. It was a confirmation of Romney’s acceptability, plausibility, and fitness for office.
Yesterday, Sully admitted he had been “on the ledge”:
Oh good grief! This is classic Sullivan, hyper-emoting and making an ass of himself in general. But at least he has stopped being obsessed with Sarah Palin’s uterus for a while.
By the way, I really do not care that Andrew Sullivan is Gay NTTIAWWT, that is his business, but I thought the headline was funny
Armed citizens, defending their lives with guns. Imagine if these people had NOT been armed. And let me remind you that hundreds of armed Americans defend themselves with firearms every day!
Newsbusters has the details
Eight days after making a fool of himself on Jeopardy!, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was back to impugning the intellectual capacity of Sarah Palin.
After playing a clip of the former Alaska governor discussing why she wanted John McCain to focus on Barack Obama’s connection to the America-hating Reverend Jeremiah Wright in the 2008 campaign, Matthews mocked Tuesday, “I think her briefing papers have the weight of a comic book” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Please, I think we all know that Palin is smarter than Crazy Legs any day. And I think we can agree that Matthews new theme song should be
Feminists have one issue that they focus more of their energy on than any other. That issue is abortion, or, as Feminists like to say a woman’s right to choose. Ah, how nice does that sound. After all who can’t get behind a woman being empowered, Feminists LOVE the word “empowered”, to make choices for herself right? But, what do these Feminists really mean by choice?
Well, if you were to ask any number of women who are Conservative politicians, writers, speakers, or bloggers you would quickly realize that Liberal Feminists do not much approve of, or support these women’s rights to think as they choose, much less to express those views. Women like Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, and Sarah Palin are often vilified by the Left, yet no Feminists rush to their defense, and often join in these attacks. Often these attacks focus on the very things that Feminists claim to be so offended over. Attacks on the looks, sex lives, and intelligence of Conservative women go unanswered by the Feminists.
What do Feminists say when women choose to pose for bikini shoots, or for a men’s magazine? Do they defend these women, and their choice? No, rather they verbally assault these ladies as demeaning and sexualizing other women. The fact that these women CHOSE to pose for the camera matters not. Apparently Feminists only defend a woman’s right to choose if that woman chooses to abort her baby. It is also apparent that Feminists have no plans to begin defending women who express Conservative views either.
Despite these obvious holes in the Feminists claims of being defenders of women’s rights, many women still fall victim to the propaganda the Feminists preach. Smitty has a perfect example of this at The Other McCain. Some actresses who are so brainwashed that they made a “funny” video that ought to revolt every mother. The video, which features Kate Beckinsale and celebrates that “wonderful right to choose”. To kill your baby that is.
What a creepy, sick, Orwellian world these feminists live in. Remind me again why any mature, masculine male would want to be in the same room as these abattoir-vaginas, much less offering them any essence to destroy? I guess I should say “choose to destroy”.
The sickness of the government-worship implied in this clip is only exceeded by the crypto-incest of talking about their dads and their vaginas at the end, if you can make it that far.
The video is disturbing because it shows how brainwashed these women are. They have been convinced that EVERYTHING about them revolves around the right to abort their babies. They have joined in the cheapening of human life that the Left is neck-deep in. And when I say Feminism has helped lead the charge of cheapening human life, I mean exactly that. Don’t think so? Well how else would you classify a “bowling for abortions for 14-year-olds” fundraiser?
CNS News reported:
The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF), who last month raised over $400,000 for abortions through its Bowl-a-Thon, touted that it provided money for a 14-year-old’s abortion as part of the group’s “real stories of abortion access.”
On its website in a post entitled, “Getting an abortion means getting a second chance,” NNAF highlights the story of Darcy, a 14-year-old who terminated her pregnancy with the help of the group’s “George Tiller Memorial Fund.”
“I’m pretty smart for 14, I think,” Darcy writes. “I love biology, especially the stuff on animals. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be a vet — I definitely want to start my own practice so that I make enough money and when I have kids I can be home with them,” she said.
After finding out she was pregnant, the girl writes she did not want to tell her mother, “But in the state where I live, minors can’t get an abortion without permission from a parent or a judge,” she said. “So I did end up telling her.”
Darcy said a clinic put her in touch with NNAF because the “abortion was going to cost more than our rent.”
“There’s no way that me and my mom could have come up with that much,” she said.
Ain’t Feminism grand? Of course if Darcy ever feels any guilt over her abortion, and many women do, do not expect any Feminists to hold another bowl-a-thon for her. And God help Darcy if she ever leans Conservative. Beware the “tolerance” of Feminist wackos like Cher
Well, well, the GOP establishment continues to be tougher on Conservatives that threaten the status quo than on Democrats, or so it seems anyway.
Michelle Malkin takes note of this phenomenon
Establishment Republicans are really getting unhinged by fresh, conservative voices — especially female and minority ones — who are on the rise.
You’ll recall that earlier this month, Romney supporter Ann Coulter took to ABC News to put down Sarah Palin and Marco Rubio as “novelty” candidates.
Ah yes Ann Coulter, whom I once suspected was more full of herself than of real passion for the Conservative cause. Looks like I was right about her all along. Just like the Establishcrats, she is all about keeping the pecking order right where it is. But, Ann Coulter is hardly the only one flapping her gums.
You know someone ought to tell the Establishcrats that at one time the very idea of a Constitutionsal Republic, like America, was a “novelty”. Luckily for us, the Founders had what the likes of the GOP EStblishment does not have, VISION, GUTS, ,and WISDOM!
Yesterday at the Utah Republican convention, where crusty incumbent Sen. Orrin Hatch failed in his $6 million bid to avoid a primary fight for the nomination, the state’s attorney general attacked 4th CD candidate and Tea Party favorite Mia Love as a…”novelty.”
Many Republicans were shocked Saturday when Attorney General Mark Shurtleff seemingly dismissed Mia Love — the first black woman nominated for Congress in Utah — as a “novelty.”
“You have to please pick a person with a proven record who can beat Jim Matheson this fall. Not a novelty,” Shurtleff said.
The reference drew boos from many in the audience and outrage from many Republicans.
Republican National Committeewoman Enid Mickelsen said she had an angry confrontation with Shurtleff over the comment.
“At first I didn’t believe it,” Mickelsen said. But Shurtleff, she said, didn’t back away from the comment.
“He said, ‘Enid, what else is her appeal?’ And I lost it,” Mickelsen said.
I suppose Mickelsen cannot figure out that the appeal of Love is EXACTLY because they are not career politicians, and because they do not have that vaunted “proven record”. The problem with these politicians and their proven records is, frankly, that most of the time that proven record stinks! Mickelsen ought to be sharp enough to figure out that people are fed up with the same old political games. They want people of principle. Face it, the guys, and gals with proven records, have too often let us down.
Smitty notes that the Mia Love success only proves that we Tea Party types are, well, you know…..
Everyone knows that Republicans are racist, or they would be Democrats. Also, Republicans have been waging a war on women, as indicated by their opposition to ObamaCare. Thus, via Legal Insurrection, we discover that Mia Love is the nominee for UT-4.
There is no way this could be motivated by agreement with Love’s politics. And it cannot be that Love has actual political talent. Furthermore, Republicans are immune to improvement, so overcoming their medieval ways cannot be the driver here.
No, there can be only one explanation. Through some quirk of space-time and excess coffee, the inherent misogyny of the Republicans must have momentarily cancelled all of the bias and bigotry in their hearts, and allowed Mia Love to slip through.
YUP! No way we would actually not care about skin color or gender. Truth is, Conservatives care far less about those things than do Liberals, who suffer from Racial Obsession Syndrome All I can add is Go Mia!
One of my favorite bloggers, Smitty, of The Other McCain, was the victim of a brutal attack recently. Who attacked him? Angry Feminuts? Radical environmentalists? Union thugs? No, perp is even more shocking . The attack was caught on camera, and the following image will stun you
HA! My niece Savannah Grace has unleashed similar attacks on me. Sure, those babies look adorable, but, they can turn on you.
Lance Burri had some fun with this too,over at Right Wing News.
When Alamo Heights high school basketball players chanted “USA” after winning a game, they were punished severely by educrats and vociferously denounced in the media for “racism.” Elsewhere in San Antonio, punks broke into a guy’s house and spray-painted “Die Whitey” on the wall; the authorities can’t figure out if it’s a hate crime.
Why have we allowed the Left to screw this nation up this badly? And it is not just limited to the absurd racial speech codes the left is shackling us with. You know,the ones that allow Liberals to use racist terms like “White Boys”. Kurt has another example of how the Left is killing us
Kalifornia is now forcing Coke and Pepsi to change their soda-pop recipes. Because the way they make the caramel coloring has cause cancer in some lab rats…who ingested the equivalent of some 1,000 cans per day.
So, do the two giant soft drink manufacturers pull their products from the shelves and tell Sacramento to pound sand?
NOoooo, they ask how much time they have to obey some BS health law that doesn’t affect anyone at all. So, California is broke, and THIS is what their legislature focuses on? And why do the voters keep electing these morons? Maybe they are all stoned
The Hill reported:
Bill Burton, the head of the super-PAC supporting President Obama’s reelection effort, said Thursday that while some of comedian Bill Maher’s comments “were vulgar and inappropriate” he did not believe they were similar in tone to controversial statements last week by radio host Rush Limbaugh.
Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” recently announced a $1 million donation to the Priorities USA group helmed by Burton. But conservatives have argued the group should return the donation because some of the comedian’s past statements have been as controversial as remarks made by Limbaugh and denounced by the president and leading Democrats.
Limbaugh came under fire for calling Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, who testified to Congress in favor of mandating coverage for contraception, a “slut” and a “prostitute.” But supporters of the conservative talk show host argue Maher has also used derogatory terms — including “bimbo” and “twat” — to describe prominent Republican politicians, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked Burton, a former Obama campaign press secretary, if that was a double standard, a charge Burton deflected by arguing that Maher was a comedian, not a political commentator.
“First of all, obviously, some of those things were vulgar and inappropriate and said over the course of years of a comedian’s life. It’s not language I would use or language we would use at Priorities USA,” Burton said. “But the notion that there is an equivalence between what a comedian has said over the course of his career and what the de facto leader of the Republican Party said to sexually degrade a woman who led in a political debate of our time, is crazy.”
“There’s no just similarity about what Rush Limbaugh said, lying about the argument that Ms. Fluke was making — a law student at Georgetown — and what a comedian has said in the past,” he added.
Break out the tar and feathers. And hurry up before these Nanny Statists start rationing our food
After all, whosoever controls our daily bread, controls us—lock, stock, and large intestine. Ask any Ukrainian.
The ultimate liberal goal is not a fair distribution of fresh food. The market distributes goods according to supply and demand and manufacturers distribute their products according to demand. The intent is to take away our freedoms. Food is now a variable of class struggle and a form of discrimination because “the poor and downtrodden are getting junk food while the snobs get fancy food.”
According to food police at school, your mom does not know what is best for you, your government does, following Michelle Obama’s nutrition dictates. Food and the distribution of food has become a social issue in the collectivist/socialist ideology. We must all be equal in the leftist view and the government must step in to regulate food distribution and delivery. “Food Justice” Has Arrived
Or you could just ask George Soros:
Financier and progressive activist George Soros is formulating a move to control food and grain production by purchasing grain elevators in late March in several parts of the United States through his Soros Managment Fund’s backed Gavilon Grain.
With strong ties to the Obama administration, Soros now has both the economic, and political clout to begin consolidation of purchasing and shipping domestic agriculture around the world.
Why grain elevators, you wonder?
What most folks don’t understand it is the Grain Elevator Operator who makes the money, and controls the prices for the most part. Not the commodities market. You control the Grain operator, you control the food supply. (Bunkerville comment via George Soros: How Much Is Enough For This Man? | Conservatives On Fire)
Like I said grab the tar, the feathers,and hurry up!
No, Rush really should not have called Fluke a slut, he should have called her a liar, but that is a different story. The point is,that Obama called Fluke to offer his support, Liberals all rushed to defend Fluke, yet,Obama accepted 1,000,000 dollars from Bill Maher. Hmmm, anyone want to take a stab at the incredibly offensive things Maher has said about many women, including Sarah Palin? Do I detect a bit of a double standard here? Of course I do,because Liberals suffer from Selective Outrage Syndrome. They express outrage when it suits them, and ONLY when it suits them. Just another example that illustrates that Liberalism is an ideology of convenience.
A liberal will feign outrage over Rush calling a woman a slut, but laugh when Maher calls Palin a Cunt over and over and over,or when Keith Olbermann calls Michelle Malkin a “mashed up bag of meat”, or when Ed Schultz calls Laura Ingraham terrible names.
