Barack’s Magical Mystery Tour …

Fri 11/27/2009


And The Road to the White House. (a retrospective) With the passing of the anniversary of Obama’s election, I have tried to collect and assemble the events that I feel provided the crucial elements that won him the White House. What delivered first the Democratic primary from the then presumptive heir Hillary, and then worked to […]

The Progressive Span and the Bridge to Healthcare Reform

Sun 10/25/2009


Recently some conservatives have rejoiced in the appearance that they have slowed down the Democratic Juggernaut billed as health care reform. While simultaneously the DNC and the White House have persistently insisted they “have never been closer to passing meaningful healthcare reform”, asserting that the momentum for such a policy lies with them. What gives? […]

Its Still 3rd and Long, Time to Move the Rock Downfield!

Wed 09/23/2009


ACORN for the first time faces the prospect of receiving its just desserts. The fat lady may be on TV but she ain’t singing yet, and these people are practiced in the art of covering their tracks. So it behooves us not to get overconfident just yet. While the investigation on ACORN (and according to […]

The Importance of Threat Identification and Priority Targeting when Calling for Fire

Thu 09/10/2009


This morning over on Hot Air, one of my regular sites I visit, Ed Morrissey was commenting on the Van Jones resignation, and the possibility of Cass Sunstein becoming the next target of conservative’s ire, he seems to imply that Sunstein might not be the most logical target. That due to the fact the Sunstein is […]

Please, Do Not Feed the 800 lb Gorilla…..

Thu 08/27/2009


The right has opposed Obama and the left has supported him, on the mistaken belief that Obama was a socialist. I have hesitated to call it as I see it for fear of being labeled a “paranoid,” but. Well now the cat is out of the bag, and media arms of both the right and […]

“Fishy,” What Lurketh in yon Foul Waters?

Tue 08/11/2009


Alright enough already! Will someone please turn the lights back on and roll the credits for this week’s episode of the Twilight Zone. First we have the brazenly Orwellian directive from the Office of Health Reform/Ministry of Truth to contact our friendly snitchboard operator to report any “fishy” communications from our neighbors/political extremists. Then from […]

The 3rd Coast and The 3rd World

Mon 08/03/2009


The recent dust up between officer Crowley and professor Gates has been splashed across many headlines of late, and has taken up considerable column space in various Op-Eds since. President Obama finds himself once more, entirely through his own fault, embroiled in racial controversy, and people, again despite the image put forth by Axelrod and […]

The Methodology of Subversion and the Undermining of Liberty

Sat 08/01/2009


The other day Dr. Zero posted a thoughtful, well reasoned essay extolling the virtues of Big Business versus Big Government on one of my favorite sites, HotAir.  The argument posited by Dr Zero is one of a battle that has raged across the planet since the turn of the last century. However, the American left […]

Money, Power, Obama and Redistribution

Fri 04/03/2009


By MJMotley No one should be surprised by Barack Obama’s hubris in his disenfranchisement  of GM’s and Chrysler’s boards’ of directors and shareholders. His audacity in presuming that he was qualified to run the nation, after having never successfully run anything, was evident. There wasn’t anything, in his remarkably thin resume, to suggest that he […]

Mon 03/30/2009


By MJMotley In the barrage of bad news cascading across the globe, one might have missed the trouble brewing in the Balkans .The Balkans seem poised for armed confrontation once again. The Kosovars seem insistent on picking a fight for sovereignty, but oblivious to the fact that their protectors are no longer in a position […]

General Kayani’s Conundrum and Pakistan on the Precipice

Fri 03/20/2009


By MJMotley General Ashfaq Kayani may feel justifiable pride in having come from being the son of an impoverished NCO to rising through the ranks to hold the highest position in Pakistan’s army as Army Chief of Pakistan. Referred to in the Hindustan Times as “The quiet general”, he may wish his ascension had occurred […]

The Obama Economic Medicine, Triage or Euthanasia?

Thu 03/12/2009


Let’s welcome a new writer. Leave comments. Thanks  —ed By MJMotley While it is true that we are as yet far from reaching the deprivations, experienced during the Great Depression, more press conferences by Obama and Geithner may yet land us there. The Great Depression has been on the lips of many talking heads of […]
