Did Obama Lose to a Prison Inmate?
Last Tuesday was one of the darkest days in American political history for a sitting President. And, as usual, the biased mainstream media decided not to cover it - a sign so devastating that he ought to consider dropping out of the 2012 Presidential race for the good of the Democratic Party... and America. Obama's jaw-dropping moment occurred in the West Virginia Democratic Presidential primary. Obama squeaked out a 58% to 42% victory. You might ask, “Who got the 42%? I didn’t know Obama had an opponent for President on the Democrat side?” Good question. Obama didn’t know he had an opponent either. Neither did the media. The man who got 42%? Inmate #11593-051. Yes, you read correctly. A Texas prison inmate named Keith Judd, incarcerated for 17 years for extortion, won 42% of Democrat primary voters in West Virginia’s Presidential primary against Barack Obama, the incumbent President. Keep in mind these were Democrats, Obama’s most loyal voters. [more...]
Elections and the Tea Party
By Doug Johnson
Former Senator Arlen Specter is complaining about the impact conservative groups like the Tea Party are having on elections. Specter is just like the other Democrats and establishment Republicans in Washington. He’s out of touch with Americans. Voters are fed up with the mess politicians have created in Washington and they’re taking America back. Lately we’re hearing a lot of whining from people like Dick Lugar, Arlen Specter, and Orrin Hatch. They see the movement of conservatives, much of it via Tea Party activities, as a threat to the good ol' boy network of established power in Washington. Many politicians are feeling the pressure from Tea Party groups. Many more will follow. The Tea Party is not a protest movement, it's a revolution; and what happened in 2010 was only the beginning.

French President Francois Hollande is An Elitist Fraud
By Tony Katz
Newly elected French President Francois Hollande hates capitalism. He has called the world of finance his "enemy." Hollande wants to "curtail" financial activities in Paris, removing it as a hub of worldwide finance. Then, the Socialist Hollande wants to take a few days off in his (one of many) house on the French Riviera. According to the Daily Mail, the Socialist-In-Chief has three “holiday” homes on the water, with an estimated value of £1million. Much of Hollande’s campaign success was making sure that former President Nicholas Sarkozy was the “Bling Bling” president. Was this information hidden from the French people, or is the French press as inept at vetting their candidates as the U.S. press? [more...]
Hold On to Your Wallets; Congress May Consider Another "edujobs" Bill
By Kyle Olson
During the summer of 2010, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Congress into a special session to pass a $10 billion "edujobs" bill "to save" the jobs of thousands of public school teachers and support staff - nearly all of whom belong to labor unions. That "free" money allowed schools to continue their wasteful spending ways for a while longer, in hopes that the economy would come roaring back before school officials were forced to make difficult decisions about their out-of-control labor costs. But less than two years later, the economy is still stuck in first gear, schools have burned through their "edujobs" money and school budgets are back in the red. School officials will finally have to face reality and deal with their persistent spending problems, right? Not if U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley gets his way. The New York Democrat has proposed a new $70 billion, two-year bailout plan that would "save or create thousands of jobs for teachers and first responders." [more...]
'Where's My New Stimulus?'
Last Friday in Reno, Nevada the President debuted his newest $35 billion stimulus package. The goals for the new stimulus are all very honorable; the President’s list includes an expanded program to help homeowners refinance their mortgages, a proposal to give small businesses tax breaks for hiring more workers, a program that would help veterans find jobs, and an extension of tax credits for clean-energy companies. However, Mr. Obama didn’t discuss in his address the cost of his proposals or how to pay for them. It seems like every group is asking the President ‘Where’s my new stimulus?’ The administration has created a new stimulus for every group of voters they are trying to win over. If you’ve got a problem, there is a stimulus to fix it. [more...]
