Get Ready to be Outraged
Energy item by Marita K. Noon
New Mexicans are rallying to fight a rate increase proposed by PNM-the largest electrical system in the state. It would be the third major increase
in recent years. Previous increases raised rates for some customers by as much as 24%. A PNM representative told business leaders that this one
would be “big.” It is: 21.2%.

Perfect Birthday Gift for America: “Stupid Ideas Czar”
Satire item by John W. Lillpop
On this day for celebration of America’s 234th birthday, we need a gift to we the people from our government. Here is a thought: America’s precipitious slide into to a Marxist, third-world abyss while under the non-leadership of a 48 year old spoiled brat who is reckless and fickle, and unfit for command, demands that a “stupid ideas” czar be installed to filter out his most dangerous ideas before they can be implemented.
July 4, 2010: Rededicate Ourselves To The Declaration
Freedom and Liberty item by Thomas E. Brewton
The events triggered by the Declaration of Independence were not a revolution. They were a struggle to gain independence from arbitrary exercise of government power.
Declaration Of Independence Day For Kids
Freedom and Liberty item by Chuck Baldwin
This past week, my son and constitutional attorney, Tim Baldwin, wrote the following and then delivered it to his elementary age Bible class at our church. It tells the story of our brave forebears’ struggle for freedom and independence in a way that even children can comprehend. Oh! By the way, the class stood up and clapped after Tim delivered this address. I offer Tim’s lesson to my reading audience with the prospect that many of you may want to read this story to your children or grandchildren this weekend, as we celebrate our nation’s independence.
Senator Lindsey Graham’s Dangerous Blend of Stupidity And Arrogance
RINO's item by J.J. Jackson
So here I am, getting ready for a nice long weekend with my family and preparing to take a break from politics when wouldn’t you know it? Something happens that is just so stupid, so arrogant and so off the wall that I am drawn to scrap my plans not to write an article this week and hit the keyboard running. Thank you Senator Graham for helping to add to my workload.
Confined Livestock Better For the Planet
GreeenIsm item by Dennis T. Avery
Stanford University recently startled the world with its conclusion that conventional high-yield farming is far better for the planet than low-yield farming. And this includes the First World’s current icon, organic farming. We know that high-yield farms need less land to produce the same amount of food, protecting the huge amounts of soil carbon that would be gassed off if we plowed more land for low-yield crops. However, the Stanford study says that high-yield farming may have saved 600 billion tons of CO2 emissions. That’s equal to one-third of the greenhouses gasses emitted from the whole industrial revolution since 1850!
Into The Heart Of Darkness, Part 2
ObamaNation item by Frederick Meekins
In “Into The Heart Of Darkness, Part 1”, I examined the Black liberation theology of Jeremiah Wright and how the leftist radicalism at the heart of this worldview serves as the foundation of the belief system of President
Barack Obama and forms the basis of many of his policies. And even though Obama claims to have renounced his connections to his former pastor Jeremiah Wright, since Obama sat under this pastor for nearly 20 years and continues to advocate these kinds of policies, it is obvious Obama has not distanced himself from sociopolitical radicalism to the extent he claims he has.
Burning Drudge, burning Weigel: A fiery view from the Washington Post
MSM/Media Bias item by Paul Ibbetson
The forced resignation of David Weigel by the Washington Post will probably be forgotten by tomorrow, nothing more than a little blip on the radar of those submersed in the world of the Washington Post. Weigel’s online communications were nabbed and made public to expose the writer as a liberal who thinks Matt Drudge should set himself on fire and that conservatives are inherently doing evil. If you are a conservative you might shake your head, grit your teeth, or even laugh at some of Weigel’s private meanderings about the opposition. What you would not be is surprised. The Washington Post wants you to think that they are awe-struck and amazed, as if their writer were suddenly part of an E-True Hollywood story in which never-before-seen hidden details are suddenly being illuminated. Please.

The 17th Amendment Revisited
Supreme Court item by Thomas E. Brewton
Original provisions of the Constitution intended to prevent Congress from enacting “dumb” laws were vitiated by ratification of the 17th Amendment.
The President Is Not Due ‘His Due’
Supreme Court item by Frank Salvato
Over the course of the past several administrations we have heard from senators, political activists and media pundits that when a vacancy opens on the United States Supreme Court the Senate Judiciary Committee, and then the Senate as a whole, should allow the sitting president to have his nominee confirmed and seated to the bench. Many say that presidents “are due” the confirmation of their nominees. Truth be told, this is as far from what our Framers intended as can be fathomed.
This Independence Day, It Is Appropriate to Fly Old Glory Upside Down
ObamaNation item by John W. Lillpop
Flying the American flag upside down sends an urgent message on behalf of American Patriots. That message is simply: Our nation is under attack and is greatly distressed! Has there ever been a time when American culture, language, and values were in greater danger than at the present time?
Whatever Happened To “Yes We Can”?
Immigration/Border item by Thomas D. Segel
I just finished listening to the “Yes We Can” president spend an entire immigration speech saying, “No We Can’t”. According to Barack Obama it is next to impossible for anyone to do anything to repair our broken borders. He also seems to believe that breaking our law by violating the border is acceptable and can be resolved by the criminal alien paying a small fine and learning English.
Al Gore Accusation: Investigation of Sexual Assault Cases
Law Enforcement item by Jim Kouri, CPP
Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore is being accused of attempting to rape a masseuse at the Hotel Lucia in Portland, Oregon. The Nobel Peace Prize winner “unequivocally’ denied the allegations by the woman.
Obama’s “Fundamental Transformation” means Total Annihilation
ObamaNation item by Sher Zieve
Defined as “betrayal of country—violation of the allegiance owed by somebody to his or her own country, e.g. by aiding an enemy,” virtually everything The Obama has done and is doing is called treason. And, as Obama still maintains he is a natural-born US citizen, what he has effected is also High Treason—defined as “treason perpetrated by somebody against his or her own country.” In order to gain some semblance of what the Dictator-and-Destroyer-in-Chief has done and is continuing to do in his “fundamental transformation” of the United States of America, a partial and I believe actionable list includes, but is not limited to, the following…

Spare Us The Kagan Confirmation Charade
Supreme Court item by Christopher G. Adamo
Perhaps it is again time for a history refresher regarding the origins of the United States of America. The Constitution is far more than just a venerated piece of parchment containing soaring words and phrases, that sits behind a thick piece of glass in the National Archives. It was, and is, the original and foundational “Contract With America,” the national charter by which the states mutually agreed to establish a federal government for the purpose of arbitrating between them and collectively representing them among foreign powers.
Atheistic Billboards across North Carolina Tout a Dangerous Message
Freedom and Liberty item by Rev. Mark Creech
They refer to themselves as the North Carolina Secular Association and they’ve mounted an ad campaign that has their message posted on billboards in six major cities in the Tar Heel State. The message on the billboards: “One nation, indivisible.”
“Rabbi Live” Turns His Sights on Obama after Helen Thomas
MSM/Media Bias item by Roger Aronoff
Rabbi David Nesenoff has given Accuracy in Media the most detailed account yet of how his encounter with veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas caused him to reevaluate not only his view of the media, but of the White House and President Obama.
Napolitano Responds to Criticism Over Railway Security
National Security item by Jim Kouri, CPP
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will launch the first phase of DHS’s nationwide “See Something, Say Something” campaign and announce a new national information-sharing partnership with Amtrak during a whistlestop train tour through New York City, Newark, N.J., Philadelphia and Washington on Thursday, July 1—highlighting the public’s important role in keeping our country safe from all threats and the Obama administration’s progress in bolstering surface transportation security.

The Old Girl’s Club
Page 80 of 88 pages « First < 78 79 80 81 82 > Last »
Supreme Court item by Alan Caruba
I would be more depressed regarding the nomination of Elena Kagan to be a Supreme Court Justice were it not for George W. Bush’s nomination of Harriet Myers. That caused such a firestorm of rebuke that she withdrew herself from consideration. The same should be done for the ideologue that Obama has nominated, but it won’t.
