Don’t Waste the Tea Party Mandate

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

There WAS a mandate won in this election and it belongs, I believe, to the Tea Party but we’re in danger of drowning it out.

Yesterday was interesting for us on social media.

While most either received our article enthusiastically,there were some just too deflated to muster up the fighting spirit.

There were however, a handful of “also ran” supporters who were just hopping mad.

At me…

For supporting not their particular candidate.

Here’s a prime example:

Samm Tittle ANOTHER BSer. YOUR NAME IS ON OUR SWEAT BOARD RIGHT THIS MINUTE. BELIEVE THE ONLY WOMAN HISPANIC EVANGELICAL W/TIES TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY REACHED OUT TO YOU AND YOU COULD HAVE REALIZED HER STRENGTH TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TODAY. NO .. YOU ARE STUCK WITH THIS PRESIDENT DESTROYER AND YOU WANT US TO READ YOUR WHAT? THE ONLY PATRIOT THAT WAS RUNNING IN THE RACE FOR REAL WAS AND IS SAMM TITTLE. LEAVING SO I WON’T SAY MEAN THINGS TO YOU. YOU MIGHT HAVE HAD THE RIGHT INTENTION BUT YOU BLEW IT TOO.

Craig Andresen As I told you in our phone conversation Samm…Run for Congress. Your idesa are sound but your presidential campaign just wasn’t national enough. You can still help turn this country around from congress and I urge you to do so.

Weekend Edition: Politics and Social or, Anti Social Media

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

Over The last few years, one thing has had a most definite impact on politics.

The Tea Party?

Well, yes but…

Obama’s ideology of division?

Well…yes, but…

There is something else. Something bigger than ideologies and bigger than a candidate or a political movement.

It’s social media.

Social media has changed the way we view, discuss and relate to politics.

I’m not just talking about Breitbart although, he did do more to bring social media to the forefront of politics than any other thousand people I know and while his personal impact was too short lived, his residual impact will continue to reverberate and shape the future forever.

I’m talking about garden variety social media and the people who utilize it in the most basic way.

Facebook and Twitter have provided a way to broadcast individual views like never before and just like politics…Social media can bring out the best, and worst in people.

We, as individuals, are able to share our thoughts, ideas, comments, images and yes, our blogs and websites with THOUSANDS of people and it’s real time, live and at times, overpowering.

Think about it. We have watched social media organize uprisings in Egypt, Iran, Syria and in Libya, we watched images and videos of the demise of Gaddafi just moments after he was killed.

Liberals in Full-On Meltdown Mode

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

There are a few things from the start of the Republican National Convention which should surprise nobody.

First, we had Chuck Todd from the Obama propaganda wing known as NBC, stating that, “There are folks with the Romney campaign who think, ‘Boy, Romney can’t catch a break ever since he named Paul Ryan. He got a little momentum after the Ryan pick and then he’s disrupted by two storms. One, a political storm in Todd Akin which we just brought up. But now an actual storm, and when you think when this storm moves to and closer to Louisiana, the specter, the sort of shadow of Bush and Katrina does hang over this convention.

Seriously? THIS is where the liberal media wants to go?

If there is ANY specter or shadow of Katrina it casts itself directly over liberals.

Louisiana had a liberal governor who did NOTHING in the face of the COMING storm and woefully dropped the ball in its wake. The liberal media has, since Katrina, blamed Bush for not sending in the National Guard to evacuate people when, in fact, it would have been illegal to do so without the request of the state’s Governor. She failed to make that request.

It was also the prevue of New Orleans’ Mayor, another liberal, who fled the city for higher ground…IN DALLAS.

And let’s not even get started on the 10s of MILLIONS of dollars given to New Orleans to shore up their levies over the decades which decades of liberal officials spent elsewhere.

A Question for the Anybody But Mitt Crowd

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Over a considerable amount of time and through the ability to do copious amounts of research, I have become reasonably good at figuring out political quandaries.

I don’t always get it exactly right but, I honestly wish I weren’t right as often as I am.

Finding the answers to questions regarding political ideology, political history, how dots are connected and the end games of certain politicians have become a passion.

I’d like to think I’ve become pretty good at it.

Currently, however, the answer to a most perplexing political question eludes me.

I’m asking for your help.

There is no cash prize involved, like the sum given to the brilliant mind which created the $50.00 light bulb but rest assured, you’ll have my unending gratitude.

Please, somebody…Explain to me exactly how…

Splitting the 2012 presidential vote between Romney, Gingrich, Paul, Cain, Palin, Johnson, Dummett, Tittle and any other number of known or unknown candidates of personal choice will defeat Obama.

Conservatives agree, after all, that Obama needs to be defeated and that if he isn’t, the situation is dire.

In that, at least, there IS agreement.

Thus, the quandary…

Obama’s “Fundamental Transformation” to Imperial Rule

Sunday, June 17th, 2012

America is poised to the razor’s edge of an abyss the depths of which have no measure. Make no mistake, this is a fact.

We currently have a “president” who stands at that deadly precipice and orders the nation…”FORWARD.”

If what Obama did last Friday, with his immigration decree doesn’t wake you up, you are forever lost.

Allow me to be as clear and succinct as is humanly possible.

In November, there will be 2 names on the presidential ballot.

Obama.

Romney.

That’s it. That’s it no matter who would rather have someone else’s name there instead of Romney. I am one of them as of the field which ran, I would have much preferred Newt Gingrich. No matter what thread of hope onto which I hang, there will be no brokered convention. Newt will not be the nominee.

The exact same is a fact for the followers of Ron Paul. The supporters of Sarah Palin, Allen West, Perry, Cain, Santorum, Pawlenty, Bachmann and on and on.

It is just as true for those who support candidates who have never been heard of by people outside of their circle of friends. John Dummett Jr. comes to mind…A candidate with no name recognition whatsoever outside a small yet determined band of social media advocates.

None will be the nominee to face Obama but Mitt Romney.

That is a fact and those who don’t believe it had better start.

In November, on the presidential ballot will be 2 names. Obama and Romney.

Those who would cast a write in vote for someone other than Romney and then stand their ground and state that they voted for liberty are fools.

That too is a fact.

Every vote NOT cast for Romney in November IS a vote for Obama in that each such vote is a vote not in the Romney tally and THAT allows Obama to gain a crucial step ahead of the only other name on that ballot.

One need look no further back than Ross Perot.

Perot siphoned off enough votes from Bush 41 to keep Bush from defeating Clinton. Perot was just 1…JUST 1… “other candidate and this year, in the most important election since 1860, there are too many “other” candidates to count.

Each “other” candidate…All those different write ins, will garner, maybe, 1 or 2% of the vote IF they’re lucky. 10 “other candidates would split 10%-20% of the vote.

That is exactly the same as spotting Obama, 10%-20% in a race that has THE most dire consequences in HISTORY.

Those who would vote a write in and declare that they voted for liberty might just as well buy the bullets for the firing squad facing them and proudly declaring that they cleaned the rifles for them.

Here it is, straight forward and with no apologies.

Screw Business as Usual…A Fire and Brimstone Strategy

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

It’s going to be an ugly campaign. We all know it and we’re ready for it but it’s going to the ugliest and nastiest and dirtiest campaign in history.

Regardless of whom the GOP nominee turns out to be, why NOT take the early lead?

If the GOP Nominee takes this advice, it will send a clear message to the Republican establishment that conservatives aren’t going to do business as usual any more. It would shake the establishment and pull together conservative voters.

Even if the establishment candidate, Romney, becomes the nominee and adopts this measure, HE would pull together the conservative vote.

Here is a little something else this would do…It would shake the Obama campaign to its core.

As soon as the 1,144 delegates are in hand, WHOEVER garners them either at the convention or before…put this into motion.

Rather than a leisurely march toward a VP nominee or a surprise VP announcement like we got in 2008, vet the possible VPs NOW and stand ready to announce the running mate in a nationally televised press conference the day after the delegates are in hand.

Are you part of the 42%?

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Are you part of the 42%?  If you are, then you are rightly upset by all the rhetoric coming out of the incumbent’s administration and the talking heads on media.  If you are not part of the 42%, then consider yourself lucky.  For the all of you who are wondering what I am talking about, grab a beer, some popcorn and your calculator and read on…

Oh, and I refuse to use the man’s name when referring to the person occupying the seat of President.  I respect the office of the President, as one should.  I do not respect the man or his ideology.

Ok… So… Unemployment is at 8.2%. However, 88 MILLION people are not in the work force. Let’s compile some numbers here (according to the CIA World Factbook)…

  • US Population: 313.8 million (2012 abstract based on 2010 census and data derived comparing previous census data)
  • Population of working age (15-64): 209.2 million
  • Population NOT working: 88 million

And what is the “official” unemployment percentage? 8.2%.  That means that officially, ONLY 17.2 million people are not working.  Hmmmm  Does not add up.  What is the real percentage based on the numbers above?  Well, using the numbers above, you get a percentage of…wait for it…42%. Yes. 42% of people are not in the work force, according to those numbers. And I TRIED to use round numbers of the extrapolated numbers to be as generous as possible, but I am not willing to spin numbers for any reason.  I deal in fact, and the fact is our country is a LOT worse off than our government handlers are letting on.

If Issues Rule the Day, Conservatives Win in November

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

Yesterday, in our article titled, “Obama on a High Wire,” we outlined the flip flopping of the Emperor as a signal of desperation regarding several recent issues.

The fact is, as Obama flips his positions, his policies continue to flop.

It’s time for the GOP candidates to stop attacking one another and start pointing out their individual fundamental differences with Obama.

While there is some danger in elevating to a “general election” campaign before the convention, this election year seems to be one bent on rule breaking. Obama feels safe in a lot of this because for the GOP candidates to go after him on certain issues, they open the door for counter attacks.

Here is the real problem. Show us a candidate who hasn’t flipped or flopped on an issue and we’ll show you a unicorn.

Rick Santorum and his different positions regarding right to work. Romney and Romneycare vs Obamacare. Newt on Global Warming. Ron Paul adding earmarks INTO bills just so he can then vote AGAINST the bill…All of them have their issues in this regard.

Is it Time for Santorum To Exit? Don’t be Too Hasty!!!

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

After the amazing comeback by Newt Gingrich in South Carolina, a stunning 25 point turn around in just 5 days, and his landslide victory in yesterday’s primary, we have a whole new race going forward.

Tomorrow night, again, there will be but 4 on the debate stage in Florida.

Many now seem to believe it’s really a 2 man race and, it’s hard to argue that point.

Hard doesn’t mean impossible.

Ron Paul’s followers will get nasty when they read this but that’s not exactly a change of direction for them. They insist that Paul will win, that he’s the only one who is qualified, he’s able to walk on water etc.

Reality speaks volumes to all but them.

Ron Paul will not receive the nomination. His obtuse views of foreign policy just won’t allow it.

Then there are those, including Ron Paul’s followers who believe it’s high time Rick Santorum bows out. Santorum’s oh so narrow victory in Iowa and his lack of financial support just isn’t enough to keep him in they say.

Pretty much everybody except Rick Santorum’s ardent supporters say it’s time for Rick to bow out.

Pretty much everybody.

Not me.

One Rick Drops Out…The Other Supports SOPA?

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

And then there were 4 in a 2-man race.

In South Carolina, tonight, 4 will stand on the debate stage as Rick Perry has officially dropped out of the GOP race for the nomination.

Yes, 4 – but in reality, at least in South Carolina this Saturday, it’s a 2-man race between Romney and Gingrich.

Rick Santorum will come in 3rd and Ron Paul will be emptying the trash cans after the polls close.

That’s just the way it is.

As Perry drops out and throws his support to Newt, Santorum is left trying to bolster support from evangelicals but, it’s just not going to be enough. Not enough as well is the news this morning that Santorum actually won in Iowa.

What the Iowa numbers do, though they will never be 100% confirmed, is to keep Mitt from wining the first 2 states. That is something which had never been done before and regardless of what Iowa officials are calling a tie, Santorum’s plus 34 makes HIM the winner there.

It’s a win with an * for Santorum and a loss with an * for Romney as there are 8 precincts which lost their ballots most likely never to be seen again.

While all eyes now focus like lasers on South Carolina, Iowa has managed to relegate themselves OUT of the picture maybe permanently. Iowa will probably make some adjustments to the way they cast, count and tally Caucus votes in the future, but they will be thought of for a long time as the Florida of the heartland.
