    Hokkaido Shimbun, Japan (Original in Japanese, "FReepranslated" ^ | 4 November 2010 | Hokkaido Shimbun (Daily), from Japan
    Japanese news today over here (newspapers above the fold, magazines, non-stop TV networks) are filled to the brim with news of Mr. Obama's humiliating defeat at the hands of the Republicans.Many of this is bringing Japanese up to speed as to how unpopular Mr. Obama really is, as for the last two years by and large they perpetuated the image of him being successful and popular (mostly in order to sell books and English instruction tapes using his speeches). What a rude awakening.Well, my favorite title is from this morning's Hokkaido Shimbun: Essentially: "Obama Agenda For "Change" Delivered Strong...

    Marco Rubio won a Senate seat after a campaign in which he pushed Gov. Charlie Crist from the GOP to run as an independent. That is what the Tea parties where all about, removing Republicans in name only and removing Democrats who opposed the American people and who consider the American people their enemies. Senator-elect Marco Rubio(R-Fl) accepts his victory graciously and outlines the approach and the spirit, which we, who love America, wish to prevail in Washington D.C. (see 8:15min video)

    Chugoku Shimbun (News), in Japan, is from the Hiroshima region of the country. Their online report of the election just appeared in original Japanese. During these wee hours in the USA, I'm happy to "FReepranslate" the first paragraph and article headline as follows: "US Midterm Elections: Republicans Heading For Landslide?" "Washington Reporter, Tohru Mukai: "Polls one day before the big US midterm elections show a 15 point lead of popularity of the Republican Party over the Democratic Party. For all intents and purposes, tomorrow's vote in the US is a vote of confidence or no confidence against President Obama....

They could videotape them in (apparantly cold) Illinois.Report said the Tea Party members call Obama a SOCIALIST.Main point of the Japanese story was it said that Obama is in big trouble even in his home state of Illinois by the conservative grassroots movement "Tea Party" which has taken off in the USA, indicative by enthusiastic and large crowds wherever this Tea Party Express goes.They interviewed some of the Tea Partiers and let their...

    Democrats are using a sneaky tactic in order to win elections this fall. The New York Times reports that Dems are working behind the scenes in a number of tight races to bolster long-shot third-party candidates who have platforms at odds with the Democratic agenda but hold the promise of siphoning Republican votes.

    In yet another attempt to assault the tea party movement, the left has a new weapon up its sleeve. A weapon its predecessors in totalitarian countries such as liberal Germany and liberal China have used frequently. Revisionist history. In this case it concerns an event in American history. the Boston Tea party. A revolt by colonists where a merchant ship carrying tea from the British East India company was seized and its cargo dumped overboard. This was all due to unjust taxation by British Parliament thousands of miles away. Taxation without representation as our founders put it which was considered...

    Particularly in the case of those of us of your fellow citizens currently overseas, many of us in the US military (off duty on our own dime, time and our own facilities), retired, business, students, Christian missionaries (yes!), travelers, what not. Many of us personally have "Skype", "Vonage" and so on overseas, so theoretically it is doable in lieu of running up the phone bill. The overseas time difference for many of us will also work, such as calling in the evening in USA to reach people at their residences might well be a.m. or midday our time here...

    A new poll released this week soundly contradicts critics' claims that the tea-party movement is "fringe," "white" and "racist." PJTV's Tea Party Tracking Poll has monitored nationwide sentiments toward the tea party on a weekly basis since Aug. 2. The poll's most recent reports reveal the following results: The number of people who identify as "members" of the tea party has more than tripled over the last month alone, up to 21 percent of likely voters; Fifty-five percent of those surveyed said they support the tea parties based on the movement's positions on the issues; Among the likely voters who...

    American Thinker ^ | September 24, 2010 | J.R. Dunn
    American politics has never seen anything quite like the Tea Parties, though few appreciate the revolutionary organizational principle powering the movement. A major reason why the Tea Parties have been so successful, why the political establishment has found them so difficult to combat (and one that explains, among other things, why I've chosen to use the plural in referring to them), lies in their organization. The Tea Parties comprise a distributed network -- a non-hierarchical system of autonomous nodes with no central control point, and with all nodes possessing the same value and freedom to act independently. A distributed network...

    With Sarah Palin and Jim DeMint leading the charge, Tea Party candidates have been defeating established Republicans across America, from Nevada to Florida and Delaware to Alaska. The most recent victory of Christine O'Donnell over Mike Castle for the Republican nomination for Senate has left many moderates asking themselves where they fit in a new GOP dominated by Tea Partiers. Some political pundits have called Tea Partiers names, attacked newly nominated Republicans, and even made claims about the nonsense of ideological purity. Politico reported that Scott Brown and other moderate Republicans were concerned that there "would be no room" for...

    When the tea party movement arose in early 2009, it seemed more a sign of the times a backlash to the recession and President Barack Obama's election than a lasting force.The movement has outlived many expectations. Thousands of tea party groups have sprung up across the country, and tea party activists are having a significant impact on shaping Republican primaries.Here's a primer on the tea party movement. Is the tea party a political party?No. The name plays on the 1773 Boston Tea Party, when colonists protested British efforts to tax tea imports and dumped tea into Boston Harbor....

    The American Thinker ^ | September 08, 2010 | J.R. Dunn
    It will come as news to no one that conservatism has long had a PR problem. The political question of 2010 is this: do America's voters finally "get" conservatism? For a half-century or more, conservatism's public image has covered a vast spectrum ranging from the Neanderthals on one end to Genghis Khan on the other. Conservatism has been depicted as the political doctrine of Klansmen, inbred backwoodsmen, paranoids, and religious fanatics. (Timothy McVeigh, an atheist and anarchist, is almost always characterized as a "right-wing Christian.. I know of no case where this assertion has been corrected.) Joe McCarthy (a former...

    The American Thinker ^ | August 30, 2010 | J.R. Dunn
    It appears that the GOP -- with the help of the Tea Parties, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and the Devil -- is out to revise the 14th Amendment to the point of meaninglessness. Maybe even write the amendment out of the Constitution itself -- if not discard the Constitution completely. And all so that poor foreign newborns, who have never hurt a fly, won't be awarded with free American citizenship upon first seeing the light of day. Makes you sick, doesn't it? At least that's how the legacy media, along with various immigration activists and liberal politicians, have chosen to...

    Outside the Beltway ^ | August 24 ,2010 | Steven L. Taylor
    I should start by acknowledging that repeal of the Seventeenth Amendment is hardly a mainstream issue and certainly not anything likely to come about (which is an understatement). However, the fact that there are people out there seeking its repeal is sufficient to garner comment, especially since said persons were significant enough within factions of the Tea Party movement to actually get some Senate candidates to state that they were in support of the repeal. Further, every once in a while I will get a commenter who is favor a repeal, so it seems worth some discussion.The proximate cause of...

    The American Thinker ^ | August 23, 2010 | J.R. Dunn
    It's widely acknowledged that in 2010, the Democrats are on the ropes. But just about the same could be said for the Republicans. A few weeks ago, John Cornyn and John Boehner revealed this election's GOP platform. In a year of massive unrest, public disgust with government, and large-scale rejection of interventionist policies, the GOP will emphasize...deficits. An issue to warm an economist's heart -- and the occasional accountant's, too. Top that one, Obama. In the wake of Scott Brown's stunning upset in Massachusetts last February, with the entire New England region open to exploitation, the GOP is doing nothing....

    Liberals have a lot of misconceptions about why and what conservatives think. For example, last week my wife, Luisa, attended a Tea Party (Freedom Works) conference in Washington, DC. On the last day of the conference, reporters from all the major news outlets were invited to ask participants questions. Being a Hispanic immigrant, she was asked by a reporter what she thought of the new Arizona immigration law. Luisa said she was in favor of it. Shocked by her answer, the reporter asked in a very hostile tone, how she could be against her people? Luisa replied, These people are...
