esteve smears springfield composite highlighted

The Glenn Beck Program: Exposing CSCOPE View on YouTube The liberal strategy for indoctrinating children is rather simple: it’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission.   They teach revisionist history and Marxist ideology, make up excuses and promise “we’ll look into it” when the initial outrage arises, and then move right along as the […]

Liberal Tolerance On Display – Gracious In Victory, As Always

You may recall the Oregon businessman who took offense to Obama’s “You didn’t build that” quote and put a large sign in his shop window stating, “Hey Obama, I built my business by myself, you lousy incompetent excuse for a President.” Provocative, to be sure.

Creepy Campaign Ad Features Brainwashed Children Blaming Parents For Not Voting For Obama

Obama Ad 1027

Just in time for Halloween,  a group called The Future Children Project released this frighteningly Stalinesque campaign ad of Stepford children singing about the world they supposedly live in under a Romney presidency, with “endless wars,” “poison air,” and oceans full of oil.   And it’s all our fault for not voting for Obama, of course: […]

Who Are The Real Obstructionists?

Who Are The Real Obstructionists?

Obstructionism for me, but not for thee … From Revealing Politics: Obama ralliers exiting an Obama event at Ohio State University are asked by Caleb Bonham about what they think of so-called “obstructionist” politics. Many of the Obama supporters blamed Republicans and denounced obstructionist tactics. The most ardent activists called for Republicans to cross the […]

This is just a taste of what we have to look forward to. Ron Futrell reports at Breitbart: It was a safe prediction that I made earlier this week that the Activist Old Media would work to destroy Mitt Romney’s choice for vice president.

New Pro-Obama Propaganda Film Hits Theaters

SmallBusiness

This is one of the most disturbing things I’ve seen in a long time: the kind of cult-like adulation you see in Banana Republics, God help us! View on YouTube  No, it’s not satire. Ben Howe remarks at Red State: I am in shock that this is real.  This is the type of insane hero […]

The Oregonian Publishes Yet Another Blatant Bias Piece Disguised As News Coverage

Oregonian box

Knute Buehler is a Republican running for statewide office in Oregon. Therefore, whatever coverage he receives from the newspaper of record is typically scant. The Oregonian has a long, rich history of liberal bias, and yesterday’s story about Dr. Buehler is no exception. In a news article about a press conference he held, the reporter, […]

California, Wisconsin, And You

California, Wisconsin, And You

Although two California cities, San Diego and San Jose, held their own public-employee union trimming sessions yesterday, the brunt of attention has, of course, been focused upon Wisconsin, where public-employee union thugs poured some $21 million into their effort to remove Governor Scott Walker – and failed.Unsurprisingly, the goons and their drooling Leftist pals have […]

MarketWatch Says Obama’s Spending Binge Never Happened, Keeps Straight Face

DEMTWEET2

[5440 note: adapted from my original post at FreedomWorks] Just when you thought media bias couldn’t possibly be more blatant, along comes this article from MarketWatch, a purportedly trusted source of Wall Street news. (Never mind that MarketWatch is operated by CBS, who should change their acronym to Cooing Barack Supporters … but I digress). […]

If I Wanted America To Fail … Transcribed

[5440 note: This is a Facebook note published by true patriot, Kathleen Worman, in Oregon.

  • Final Budget: Hits and Misses July 2, 2015
    While it is good news that the budget increases its investments, the reality is that those investments can’t actually come to fruition without a reliable, sustained source of revenue to pay for them. The post Final Budget: Hits and Misses appeared first on Washington State Wire.
  • Legislature Struggling with Transportation Deal July 2, 2015
    The big sticking point was the gasoline tax increase, which would raise that tax from 37.5 cents a gallon to 49.4 cents a gallon over the next two years. The package is built around issuing bonds to finance the $16.1 billion in transportation projects over 16 years. But the bill to approve the bonds to […]

  • SSA Can’t Collect Overpayments Without Wasting Money July 3, 2015

  • Caillebotte’s Paris July 3, 2015
    What is it about France’s Third Republic—the period between two defeats at the hands of the Germans, the first at Sedan in 1870, and the second everywhere in 1940—that so captivates the American middle class imagination? Of course Americans who yearn to visit Paris one day aren’t necessarily articulating their desires with this historical terminology. […]
  • ‘Terminator: Genisys’ Review July 3, 2015
    The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards Skynet. That’s my takeaway from five Terminator movies. No matter what we do, no matter how many attempts we make to go through time to stop it, we’re going to wind up with a self-aware computer system that is bent on the destruction […]
  • Oregon Starts Mileage-Based User Fees July 2, 2015
    Yesterday, the Oregon Department of Transportation began accepting applications from volunteers willing to switch from paying gas taxes to mileage-based user fees.

Oregon’s gasoline tax is 30 cents a gallon, so if your car gets 30 […]
  • WiFi Yes, V2V No July 1, 2015
    A little-known conflict over the electromagnetic spectrum could shape self-driving cars for years to come. On one side is “an ecosystem of companies” that have developed vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications systems and the National Highway Traffic Safety Commission (NHTSC), which wants to mandate such systems in all cars and trucks, which together want the Federal Communications […]
  • Austerians or Common-Sensicans? June 30, 2015
    The Greek debt crisis has Paul Krugman waging a verbal war against those he called Austerians, meaning economists who think the solution to being up-to-your-ears in debt is to cut back on spending. (It’s also a pun on Austrian economics, which generally opposes government intervention in just about anything.) “Greece was overspending, but not by […]
