    Back in 2012 when I thought Romney had a chance, I posted some of these. Here's the 2016 version. Unless he declares martial law in the next 25 days, it's likely that President Obama will be looking at retirement from public office in the very near future. Publishing houses are scrambling to sign the soon-to-be former president for his first post-presidential book. The top 10 working titles that Mr. Obama is purportedly shopping include the following. 10. Only My Black Life Matters 9. Turns out I'm JV 8. The Manchurian President: My Puppet Masters Should Be Proud 7. Doped and...

    American Thinker ^ | 01/01/2015 | By Marguerite Creel
    The challenge facing any political institution based on artifice lies in selling its delusions to the voting public. A glance at the record demonstrates that the American left has an outstanding record in bringing this off. Events of recent months show that it has not lost its touch. In 2014, a virtual avalanche of nonstop high-level governmental propaganda cascaded throughout the national media intended to snow-blind the average American voter.  Here is a compilation of the most outrageous claims of a 21st Century statist government: 1. The border is less porous than it’s been any time since the 1970s. --...

    Sometimes pro-choice activists say things that show they are completely out of touch with reality. On my website Clinicquotes I have a collection of quotes from pro-choicers that show a stunning lack of logic or an almost delusional set of opinions. Here are ten statements made by pro-choicers that might make you shake your head: The majority of women who abort do so because they know that the unwelcome child, born of constraint or misfortune, will be wounded in some unacceptable way. As Artemis [Greek goddess of hunting] might kill a wounded animal rather than allow it to limp along...

    If you attend a church regularly, youve probably noticed the phenomenon. A guest shows up for a worship service, but he or she never returns. It is, unfortunately, a common issue in many churches. I did a Twitter poll to ask these first-time guests why they chose not to return to a particular church. While some of the responses were anticipated, I admit being a bit surprised with some of them. Though my poll is not scientific, it is nevertheless fascinating. Here are the top ten responses in order of frequency. 1.Having a stand up and greet one another time...

    Manufacturing jobs in the U.S. appear to be coming backif ever so slightly. Several American firms, including Caterpillar, GE and Ford, have announced they're shifting some manufacturing operations back to the United States, mainly because of increasing production and energy costs overseas. And since January of 2010, the United States has added 520,000 manufacturing jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There are currently 12 million manufacturing jobs on record in the United States. But the U.S. is clearly in catch-up mode.

    (Newser) – The new Nielsen/E-Poll survey of the most disliked athletes in America has the not-so-surprising name of Lance Armstrong at the top of the list, reports Forbes. More surprising is that Notre Dame star and soon-to-be-NFL'er Manti Te'o tied Armstrong with a measly 15% approval rating. Even if he was a hoax victim, Teo's fake girlfriend saga has taken a toll on his image. Worst three: After Armstrong and Te'o comes Tiger Woods, with a 19% appeal rating. It hasn't budged much since his scandal.Middle of pack: Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (21%), the Lakers' Metta World Peace (21%),...

    SNIPPET: "Social media is no longer simply a fun way to share updates on the harmless idiosyncrasies of our lives. It can undermine national security, and there ought to be a more robust discussion between the Bay Area technology world and Washington on what to do aboutit. Cyber-terrorism, especially the potential for electronic tampering with U.S. industrial or military installations, is a paramount national security threat that Washington is working to forestall. We're all working to protect our accounts from hackers. But the cyber-threat getting far less public attention involves the social media networks we use every day and the...

    The Huffington Post, ever eager to curry favor with anti-American pundits and racists posing as free-thinkers, has published a screed by Marc Lamont Hill, who is a black professor at Georgetown University, titled The 15 Most Overrated White People. Keep in mind that this is a man who not only praised convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal, but published Jamals writings, and also was accused of supporting Fidel Castro and Khalid Muhammed. So who are some of the people on Hills list? Christopher Columbus, described as an immoral treasure hunter and a vicious conquistador. Elvis Presley: a cheap facsimile of Little...

The vast majority of jihadis online, be they on forums or social networking sites[i], say nothing. Skillful translations and insightful analyses by definition tell us little about this potentially lethal yet silent majority."

These scores are based on 20 separate votes that were taken by the U.S. Senate in 2011. A score of 0.00 indicates that the senator voted against the conservative position in each of these 20 votes (in a few instances, the senator did not cast a vote).
