This was part of an ongoing defense of the Tea Party, and in particular, a volley back against the NAACP for creating a week-long mainstream media-enabled attack built upon the provably false premise that a “mob” of the Tea Partiers hurled racial epithets at Congressmen Andre Carson (D-In) and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga).“You are manufacturing this in a summer in which the economy is the No. 1 issue effecting blacks and whites in this country,” I said on Hennen’s show. “This country can ill-afford the schism of race to be exploited the way you are, based upon the false premise of the Tea Party being racist… This is absolutely manufactured for political gain.”My warning to Jealous was received with modest coverage in the conservative blogosphere.I strongly believed, and still believe, that I had irrefutable evidence that showed the NAACP caught in an act of racism far worse than anything the media and the Democrat Party had attempted to manufacture in a year and a half of relentlessly trying to destroy the Tea Party.
I knew I was going to be whacked hard, but I didn’t know when.

Tom Friedman, INSIDE THE NYT BUNKER: Tea Party is Wrong – Americans Want Higher Taxes and More Spending

Written by Editor on . Posted in Media industry

JUST SO YOU'LL KNOW, Michael Hirschorn, an Atlantic contributing editor, wrote in 2009 … "Ultimately, the death of The New YorkTimes—or at least its print edition—would be a sentimental moment, and a severe blow to American journalism. But a disaster? In the long run, maybe not."

Is he an IDIOT … or does he just play one on dead tree media?
FROM NOEL SHEPPARD, NewsBusters.com: Consider that after the impact the Tea Party has had on our nation’s politics the past 20 months, and the historic elections that just took place on November 2, Times columnist Tom Friedman actually thinks Americans aren’t interested in reducing the federal deficit but are instead yearning for higher taxes and greater government spending:
I believe most Americans don’t want a plan for deficit reduction. The Tea Party’s vision is narrow and uninspired. Americans want a plan to make America great again, and at some level they know that such a plan will require a hybrid politics — one that blends elements of both party’s instincts. And they will follow a president — they would even pay more taxes and give up more services — if they think he really has a plan to make America great again, not just bring him victory in 2012 by 50.1 percent.
The Tea Party’s vision is uninspired? Friedman ought to get out of 620 Eighth Avenue and talk to some Democrats that’ll be leaving Washington, D.C., when the new Congress gets sworn in next year.
In sum, Americans need to pay more of their hard-earned dollars to a government that has shown itself to be a reckless spender while expecting less in return.

Yesterday’s elections are old news. What about 2012?

The United States Senate in 2012: Red, redder, reddest.

Time to get saddled up people.
Via “I HATE THE MEDIA”:They say a month is an eternity in politics, so two years is … uhhh … even longer. Nevertheless, it looks like the Democrats face some big, big problems in 2012.They’ll have to defend 23 Senate seats compared to only ten for the Republicans. And to make matters even worse, the Republican seats all seem relatively safe while nearly half of the Democrat seats could be in jeopardy.Bottom line: Democrats will lose even more ground in 2012 and Republicans will take firm control of the Senate. Here’s a quick review of what the future may hold..

Mr. President … You Hear Us Now?

Written by Editor on . Posted in Obama Nation

Hello ... is anyone home?

Let’s hope His Obamaship has been listening to America.
Investor’s Business Daily: “”Communication breakdown” isn’t the Democrats’ problem — voters know what those in power did. But will the president accept what the voters have communicated to him, and apply the brakes?”…the American people have been saying as loudly as they can: Stop these people who are spending the country into ruin.And what was the Democrats’ reaction to those elections?To continue as fast as ever on their dream agenda: socialized medicine — enacted via a legislative trick to avoid a Senate filibuster; the biggest Keynesian spending stimulus in history, with only a 9.6% jobless rate to show for it; and a financial “reform” that preserves “too big to fail,” and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Is it going to be BUSINESS AS USUAL in the White House?
Gee … I hope not.

MESSAGE TO DEMS: This is America, stupid! Don’t disrespect the wishes of the electorate, who pay for everything.

Written by Editor on . Posted in New Conservatism

More choice words from Kyle-Anne Shiver:
… Democrats have decided to transform America from the top-down position of tyrants, boldly challenging the people to resist. Our founders were brilliant men who put into our Constitution the legal means to transform this country by purely democratic means. But Barack Obama is not legally empowered to make America into what he thinks it ought to be.What we have in America today isn’t just a feckless bunch of big spenders running our economy off a cliff. We have a cadre of power-mad folks who have no respect for the rule of law or the Constitution they are sworn to protect.Respect for the will of the people is the very soul of democracy. Without it, liberty is nothing but a sham.
It comes down to one word: R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Dude!!

So … Slick … how about another helping of that “Hope & Change?”

Written by Editor on . Posted in Politics

Dude, I believe you've got a typo on that poster ... the "H" should be an "N"

The Sun pretty much sums it up for us: “Can Obama expect a poll hammering? YES HE CAN.”
In Tuesday’s mid-term elections, he risks economic gridlock and political chaos as his authority is wiped out on Capitol Hill.Taxpayers are furious to see unemployment soaring despite his vow to use $700bn (£440bn) of their cash to create new jobs.They have turned sour over his decision to spend another $700bn on a healthcare system America cannot afford. And even his fans in the Democrat Party feel betrayed by his apparent timidity and paralysis under pressure.
After Tuesday, Obama goes down in history as the one-term President who let the Republicans back in.

The pundits are still puzzled … “Why didn’t President Obama do more to help the economy?”

Christian Science Monitor

Patrick Fleenor at CS Monitor answers: “The short answer is that his goal has always been to redistribute the economic pie – not necessarily grow it. That’s a shame, because he could have pursued policies that achieve both.Obama and Democrats will probably pay a high price next week for failing to see a pro-growth path to fairness. Will the presence of a Republican-led, pro-growth Congress persuade the president to pursue his goal of greater fairness in a way that helps economic growth? Our mutual prosperity depends on it.” Sucks to be a bonehead.

WELCOME ABOARD, THERE’S PLENTY OF ROOM: Politico poll shows independents flocking to GOP

Written by Editor on . Posted in Current Events

I solemnly promise to be quiet until y'all win the House and Senate back. So get out there and support your local Conservative candidate.

Ed Morrissey @ Hot Air: “Politico’s new poll reinforces the fact that momentum remains strong with fired-up Republicans, mainly because of fired-up independents. The numbers look daunting for Democrats with just one week to go before Election Day, and in many places, past the time many have already voted.”
And it’s not as though the Democrats didn’t have warnings that their massive expansion of government wouldn’t have dire consequences:
Expressing deep dissatisfaction with President Obama’s policies and performance, independents have increasingly sided with conservatives in the belief that government grew too large, too fast under Obama—and that it can no longer be trusted. In the final pre-election Battleground Poll, Republicans hold a 14-point edge among independents and lead overall, 47 percent to 42 percent, in the generic ballot match up.Instead of heeding the warnings, Democrats proceeded with the $1 trillion health care law and banked on an economic recovery that hasn’t come.
Not surprisingly, this translates into Obama’s re-elect numbers. Only 30% will definitely vote for Obama in 2012, while 35% have already decided to vote against him. Adding in “probables”, the re-elect split goes to 40/46, and with leaners 42/48. Don’t expect to see Obama on the trail much this week with those numbers.
Sort of sad though … in a happy kind of way!!

MUSHROOM CLOUD … Armageddon: What Democrats Are Hiding & Why They Are Really Scared

Written by Editor on . Posted in Government Waste

...even though Democrats know that another union bailout will likely make them even bigger pariahs with the American people, the very survival of their party rests on their ability on passing this poisonous piece of legislation. If they fail, the ramifications for the Democrats are disastrous.

At LaborUnionReport.com, “If Democrats were running a corporation, their actions would be criminal.”
Unions and Democrats are scared. They should be.America is careening toward bankruptcy. While blame can initially be laid at the feet of both parties, over the last 20 months, Democrats’ meddling in the private-sector, out-of-control spending, and sheer ineptitude in recognizing the job-killing policies they promote have pushed the nation closer to the precipice.Now, with two weeks before November 2nd, Democrats are hiding the fact that financial Armageddon may be right around the corner. If Americans are the ‘shareholders’ and politicians are the executives in charge, the lack of disclosure on the part of Democrats would be criminal. The big watering holes are about to dry up.
Isn’t that a crying shame.

Obama: Former big man on campus now flunking out

Written by Editor on . Posted in Obama Nation

IHateTheMedia.com says: “Oh, how times have changed. Barack Obama, who used to fill stadiums with charged-up college students, is now about as popular on campus as a herpes outbreak.”
Even the college kids have figured it out. The New York Daily News has the details:
College students’ support for the President is waning — a worrying sign for Democrats who are trying to re-energize young voters before the midterm elections, which are just a couple weeks away.
 Just 44% approve of the job Obama is doing, while 27% said they are unhappy with his job performance, according to a new Associated Press-mtvU poll.That’s a significant dip from the 60% who gave the president high marks in a May 2009 poll. Only 15% of college goers had a negative opinion of him back then.
Class clown.
That’s gotta hurt.
