  • Political Junkie's Guide To The Elections - Week Ending October 13, 2012 (Senate Slipping Away)

    Previous Editions:August 11, 2012August 4, 2012July 21, 2012Premier - July 4, 2012 Here is the latest update of my Rasmussen state-by-state presidential model. The model begins with the final results of the 2008 election, and updates those results with current Rasmussen state polls as they are published. Final 2008 Electoral College results were Obama 365, McCain 173. My model begins with Obama 364, McCain 174, due to not handling the few split-win states. Furthermore, 2010 apportionment favored Republicans, leaving us with a starting point of Obama 358, Romney 180. This Edition's Updates: This time, we'll start in the Senate. The...
  • Obama Claims He Has Lost Control of His Own Administration

    While it is probable that Obama had information that the murder of our ambassador in Libya was not the result of an obscure video trailer, he has claimed that he did not know. He has said he had no idea that on the anniversary of 9/11 there was an orchestrated terrorist attack on our American mission in Benghazi, Libya. Americans should stand amazed at this Obama defense. For the sake of argument, let us take them at their word. That leads to the conclusion that the entire intelligence community, if we believe Joe Biden, did not inform the President of...

    But Paul did not think it wise to take him, because he had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not continued with them in the Work. Acts 15:38 While the corrupt Obamedia hides the most tragic scandal to hit America we are witnessing what happens when ideologues are faced with reality. We are seeing a communist dictatorship believing they are rulers rather than representatives of the American people. This scandal once more shows the difference between the country our founders designed and the one which has been formed from a European ruling class mentality. We have four dead Americans including...
  • How I Misjudged the Debate in Real Time

    I think I misjudged the debate in real-time. As the debate commenced Paul Ryan appeared to be nervous and he appeared nervous to a diminishing degree throughout the entire debate until the end when he recovered well, as witnessed by his frequent reaching for the water glass. As a result of his nervousness I thought he was tentative. Ironically, Biden might have sensed this nervousness or tentativeness in Ryan and overstepped. When Biden made his first "buffoonish" intrusion I said to myself, "thank God!" I felt that Biden had made a signal error but I misjudged its impact by regarding...

    I watched with sheer amazement, as almost every single mistake Al Gore made with George W. Bush at a Presidential debate, Joe Biden repeated. Oh, certainly, he did not have too much makeup on, nor did he attempt to stride up to Ryan menacingly (which would have earned him the same bemused look Bush gave Gore), but everything else? Check. Check. And check. Biden was heard sighing and chuckling in the background. His voice dripped with contempt, even when describing his own plans and ideas. He overtalked so much that at one point, it seemed like Ryan should make like...

    It was obvious to me, and to all ConservativeKind, that Romney was an East Coast RINO, the sort of politician who we detest almost more than an "honest" liberal Democrat. We were off-put by his Massachussettes record, we were enraged at his selection, and we vowed to fight him right up to the very second he was named the Republican candidate. Yet, a few things happened recently that call into question our assumption: The Debate. Sure Romney shined. Yes, Obama sulked. The contrast in performance was wonderful to behold. But this is not enough for conservatives: A skilled RINO is...

    I have watched this year's campaign with interest, and I note that the Left, having no record to run on, has resorted to running against strawmen in the form of imaginary threats from the right. Obama bemoans the "5 trillion dollar tax cut for the rich" that is nothing but a selective misinterpretation of Romney's tax plan. Biden threatens blacks that Romney will "put y'all back in chains." But no strawman is more odious, nor maddeningly effective than the "War on Women." Hollywood starlets warn Romney to "stay out of our vaginas" while Sandra Fluke the 33 year old college...

    The media has been in a slumber for the last 4 years; not that the world has been quiet. We have lived in a world replete with economic collapse, international conflict, and social unrest, a time of tribulations and consequence, the likes of which we have not seen in over 70 years. But a media which gleans only what it desires to further a socialist agenda has found no purchase on these stories. They had achieved their goal of placing a true socialist in the Presidency, and no bad news, no bad outcomes would be spoken of during his realm....

    THIS HOPE AND CHANGE FRAUD IS JUST A CHEAP BEER.. OBlandbeer, has been living in a bubble until the debate, and that is when we saw how weak those bubbles can be blown off.. It was only media FOAM covering a cheap knock-off beer.. Who better than Wisconsin to catch a phoney brew when they see it.. They didn't buy the Union Bullying tactic when they tried to sell a socialist for their Governor, to a Conservative to Middle America.. Wisconsin, is where the game changed in this election!

    From Attalia they sailed back to Antioch, where they had been committed to the grace of God for the Work they had now completed. Acts 14:26 Since it is universal knowledge now Romney destroyed Obama we are now down to the question of what category is the tsunami heading for the District of Corruption going to be. After the night was over so was the Obozo façade and now the bold prediction of another Landslide is turning into a reality. There is even a good chance Oregon is about to turn Red as record Dems are turning away from the...
  • POST-DEBATE OBAMA ROUGHS UP MICHELE---demands cheese that stays on the cracker

    COMMENTARY | 10/6/12
    Routed at the all-important first presidential debate, Obama sought to vent his frustrations as his opponent catapulted to the lead in battleground states. Obama---AKA the Hush Puppy President---had to show he really did have strength and good talking points---and that he could actually dominate an intelligent discussion. "For crying out loud," Obama berated Michele, using debate-style assertiverness, "Is it too much to ask that you buy cheese that stays on the frickin' cracker?" Shell-shocked Obama campaign aides were more circumspect---some requested Michele get aerosol Cheeze Whiz to ease their post-debate cheesiness. As flop-sweating Obama aides waited for more suitable cheese,...

    If you've ever wondered who's behind the antiwar movement, in the Vietnam War era or today, a book you'll want to read is Roger Canfield's Comrades in Arms: How the Ameri-Cong Won the Vietnam War, written by an author known to many of us here. Canfield documents in greater detail than any previous book Hanoi's direction of the Vietnam antiwar movement, the impact of the protests on losing the war, and the continuing influence of the Vietnam antiwar movement on the strategies and tactics still used by America's enemies today. "Hanoi made the peace movement the critical element in its...

    As John was completing his Work, he said: “Who do you think I am? I am not that one. No, but he is coming after me, whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.” Acts 13:25 The Obamamedia can fool some of the Republicans all of the time and all of the Republicans some of the time but the Press Corpse can’t fool all of us all of the time. It appears the poll scam has run its course and we will now begin to see more true results as the election nears. When everybody is seriously questioning why the...

    Every working American needs to prepare for a tax increase this January. From the working poor who will receive an increase of 70% to only 13 percent for the highest bracket, the Democratic United State Senate has left in place a tax increase for all of us. They left in a hurry leaving the tax increases in place Before the Election. They left without doing their duty to pass a budget, and they left the Social Security Tax increase of 2%, adding insult to injury. One can only surmise they left these as the only tax increase they could get...

    A bumper sticker is making the rounds with Joe Biden's words: Osama is Dead; GM is Alive. Apparently, that resonates with democrat voters who want to believe Obama knows a thing or two about foreign relations. Not. Ambassador Stevens is Dead...Al Qaeda is Alive. Ambassador Stevens is Dead...The Muslim Brotherhood is Alive. The above are the real truth, and any chest thumping on the part of Obama is really misplaced self-congratulatory narcissism. We all know it was our special operations forces who took out Osama. We're pretty sure that Obama did not put on a black mask, take up a...

    Back in February, 2007, Ezra Klein created a private Google Group called JournOList (or J-List) for fellow leftwing journalists, in order that they may collude and create a united front, all on a similar message each day. This developed into a rather large scandal in March of 2009, when Politico (surprisingly, for it is decidedly left-of-center) revealed the group and its intent.Once the group was identified, and several examples of collusion were noted, the group disbanded. However, who among us believes that the collusion stopped there?Let us review a recent posting on WonkBlog, a division of the Washington Post and...

    Matt Bracken is a friend of mine. He is a former Navy SEAL, author, entrepreneur, sailor, and a very bright man. The insight he provides in his articles and in the pieces I have linked to below are not conventional or politically correct. Matt writes and speaks with the forthrightness of a man who is unwilling to risk his teammates, friends or his country because he was too afraid to ask the right question. Asking the right question is often the difference between a successful mission or a disaster of strategic magnitude. Matt knows this and he is well aware...

    You work hard, stretch every penny, but chances are you pay a higher tax rate than him: Mitt Romney made $20 million dollars in 2010, but paid only 14% in taxes—probably less than you. Now he has a plan that will give millionaires another tax break and raises taxes on middle class families by up to $2000 dollars a year. Mitt Romney's middle class tax increase: he pays less, you pay more.
