  • Trump Tells Dem Governor to SHOVE IT as He REJECTS Request for DISASTER AID after LEFTIST RIOTS!!!

    07/13/2020 1:04:06 PM PDT · by V K Lee · 26 replies
    How can you give disaster relief when the democrats, themselves, are the disaster. Are citizens required to pay to rebuild the city after democrats have burned it down? Our President has made it clear that when states turn down an opportunity of help in preventing this chaos and destruction, they have little right to then ask for monetary means in order to rebuild.TIME:12:22 A brilliant synopsis!

    The Imaginative Conservative ^ | October 27, 2015 | Bradley J. Birzer
    While my memories might verge on the edge of fuzzy nostalgia from time to time, I remember quite clearly what the women and men of the 1970s did, said, and believed in small-town American neighborhoods. In those years, I absolutely loved reading (and researching and writing), but I also loved running, biking, and exploring. I could be… rather… well. ..hyper. When I got too hyper and misbehaved, neighbors (usually women, as the men were at work) corrected me. I do not remember ever being spanked by a neighbor, but I certainly remember receiving stern “talking to’s.” The worst thing to...
  • Fist bump: Furious reactions to Obama's joyful 5-hour golf game . . .

    Daily Mail Online ^ | August 21, 2014 | David Martosko, U.S. Political Editor
    President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that 'when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.' Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha's Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times. Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant...

    The Pie Hole of The Vice President | 10-12-12 | L Thermador
    Please excuse me if my first post, ever, is out of place; I simply cannot keep this in. I have always thought that a debate, besides being an arena where multiple opposing views may be voiced and argued publicly, is a forum to showcase ones skill in the art of diplomacy. If Vice President Biden's behavior during last night's debate is, even remotely, indicative of how he deals with allies or opponents that have differing views at the international level, I am more surprised than ever that we have ANY friends at all left in the world at large.

    The Daily Caller ^ | June 17, 2012 | Jeff Poor
    On his Sunday show “Reliable Sources,” CNN host and Daily Beast Washington bureau chief Howard Kurtz made it clear that he disapproved of The Daily Caller reporter Neil Munro’s attempt to ask President Barack Obama a question during his immigration announcement on Friday. However, he then asked guest Matt Lewis, also a contributor to The Daily Caller, to react to Munro’s attempt, asking if he would have done the same thing. That led to the following exchange between Lewis and Kurtz. Transcript as follows: KURTZ: All right. Matt, he’s your colleague at The Daily Caller. But a lot of conservatives...

    George W. Bush has come out of his self-imposed media blackout to promote his new book, Decision Points, which goes into full release on November 9th. Oprah Winfrey will air a pretaped interview with the former President on that day, but has a preview of the appearance out already, via The Right Scoop. In this clip, Bush tells Winfrey that he refrains from opining on Barack Obama’s performance because he wants to treat the current President the way he wished other former Presidents had treated him. Also, he elects to stay out of the “swamp” of punditry when Winfrey asks...

    (ANSA) - Vatican City, July 27 - Tourists and Romans clad in scanty summer clothing were being told to cover up before entering the Vatican City on Tuesday. Long-standing rules on modest dress, previously applicable only to those visiting St Peter's Basilica, appear to have been extended throughout the tiny walled state. Swiss Guard officers manning the official customs point between Rome and the Vatican City began pulling aside members of the public dressed in 'inappropriate' clothing early in the morning. Men in shorts and women with exposed knees or uncovered shoulders were all stopped by the officers, who asked...

    Terry Moran believes that Justice Samuel Alito was Congressman Joe Wilson wrong when he inaudibly mouthed the words, “Not true” when he and the other Supremes where verbally accosted on the floor of the Congress by the president of the United States during the State of the Union Address. (see story) Moran blames the victims when he wrote, “…five sat there stonily. Justice Samuel Alito Jr. couldn't contain himself. He scowled, shook his head vigorously, and mouthed what seemed to be the words, "Not true."... There are many ways to write about what happened last Wednesday night. One way would...

    A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 23 January 2010 | John Semmens
    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) is reportedly “very uncomfortable” with the idea of newly elected Senator Scott Brown (R-Mass) “sitting amongst us in the Senate.” The reason: in 1982, Brown posed nude for Cosmo magazine. “The people expect that Senators will exhibit only the highest levels of decorum and integrity,” Reid said. “I’m not sure that Scott Brown lives up to this expectation.” Reid pointed out that “each chamber of Congress is responsible for deciding whether a person shall be accepted into the body. So, we could vote not to seat Brown if we feel that doing so would...

    In an astonishing admission the White House’s policy change let it be known without a doubt that Congressman Joe Wilson’s concerns had merit. Congressman Wilson was right, you lie Mr. President. Last Friday night the White House publicized that it is backing a provision that would require proof of citizenship before someone could enroll in its proposed Health Care plan. That is huge! It is proof that one lone courageous voice speaking truth to power can in fact make a difference. Minus Joe Wilson’s voice President Barry Soetoro and Democrats would have been allowed to continue the farce that illegal...
  • Ascot to turn away women for wearing short skirts

    The Telegraph ^ | 6/13/2008 | Nicole Martin
    Women face being turned away from the Royal Enclosure during Royal Ascot if their skirts are too short or if their dresses have straps less than an inch wide. Visitors who display their midriff or wear off-the-shoulder tops or halter necks will also be ejected on the orders of the Queen's representative, the Duke of Devonshire. The duke, the chairman of the course, has clarified the strict dress code for next week's event in guidance sent to all 80,000 Royal Enclosure badge holders. The code dictates that only "formal day dress" is acceptable and that ladies must wear hats or...

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Q: Since when does an MSMer care about "decorum"? A: Since it can be used to take a shot at the woman who would deprive his guy of the Dem nomination. ABC's David Wright is a devoted Obama fan, as NewsBusters has noted here, here and here. Discussing on today's GMA Hillary's foray into a working-class Indiana bar over the weekend, Wright not only faulted Hillary for her lack of decorum, but even managed to work some class warfare into the mix.

    The weather's getting warmer and necklines are dipping lower -- sometimes, too low. From the beach to the mall to the office, women seem to be showing off their cleavage more than ever before. Why? According to Elisabeth Squires, author of "Boobs: A Guide to Your Girls," American breasts are getting bigger while shirts are getting smaller. "We are seeing more cleavage these days for a few reasons. First, the fashion of the day is tight and skinny. At the same time, women are bigger than they were even 15 years ago. Bra fitters tell me that an E cup...

    MIAMI, Nov. 20 — When I was a new faculty physician, I worked with a resident doctor who was smart and energetic and took excellent care of her patients. There was just one problem. As she delivered her thoughtful patient presentations to me and the other attending doctors, it was hard not to notice her low-cut dress. “You two have to say something to her,” one of my male colleagues said to me and another female doctor one afternoon. But while none of us would have hesitated to intervene had she prescribed the wrong drug for a patient, we felt...

    The big news of last week was, of course, the President’s State of the Union Address. As always, several “satellite” stories surrounded it; none received as much attention as the expulsion of Cindy Sheehan and Beverly Young, wife of Rep. C.W. "Bill" Young (R-Fla.), from the House chamber where the address was to be given. Both Sheehan and Young were wearing legible shirts with political slogans; Sheehan’s read "2,245 Dead. How many more?", while Young's shirt bore the message: "Support the Troops--Defending Our Freedom." Capitol Police ejected them both, believing that the shirts were not allowed. Regrettably, the police apologized...

    It may have all started with James Carville’s infamous political phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid.” The phrase was not intended to insult the American public. Certainly, they were not stupid. It was the sitting president that was stupid, of course. In his presidency, he had won a war in the Middle East, chased the Iraqi army out of Kuwait, and generally enjoyed overwhelming approval ratings until America began to focus on the economy…because they were told it was bad, bad, bad. Lets see, was it a recession…..or was it a depression? Whatever. Of course, the economy in 1992 was not...

    The Dignity of the Eucharistic Celebration By Father Edward McNamara, LC In dealing with the dignity of the surroundings and decorum of the eucharistic celebration, the encyclical "Ecclesia de Eucharistia" takes its cue from several Gospel texts which complement and enhance our understanding of the simple, yet solemn moment of the sacrament's institution. Thus, the accounts of the anointing at Bethany (Matthew 26:8; Mark 14:4; John 12:4) "anticipate the honor which his body will continue to merit even after his death, indissolubly bound as it is to the mystery of his person" ("Ecclesia de Eucharistia," No. 47). The "careful" preparation...
