All the Wrong Assumptions

November 9, 2012 by

2

By Alan Caruba ~ “I see this election of Obama as an ugly puss-filled boil and it has to get to a painful point where it will be lanced so it can heal.” This quote pretty much represents the feelings of millions of Republicans and conservatives, and of the many people who have written to […]

So Many Parties on My Ballot

November 7, 2012 by

1

By Alan Caruba ~ I received my official general election sample ballot and was surprised to discover that, in addition to the Democratic and Republican Parties, there were eight others. I am familiar with the Libertarian Party and the Constitution Party, even the Green Party, but some of the others were a surprise. Running for […]

A Dreadful Media Campaign

November 7, 2012 by

0

By Brent Bozell ~ Throughout the very long presidential election cycle, two trends remained consistent. The media lauded Obama no matter how horrendous his record, and they savaged Obama’s Republican contenders as ridiculous pretenders. From the start of the Republican race in 2011, every candidate who took the lead then took an unfair beating.  They […]

By Andrew Bolt ~ TonyfromOz prefaces….. While you in the U.S. are right on top of this tonight especially, your election has been bigger news here in Australia than it has ever been before. Again, nearly all the coverage has been from the National Broadcaster, the (Australian) ABC, and as in the U.S. this branch […]

Your Vote and Why It Matters

November 6, 2012 by

3

By Alan Caruba ~ With the polls showing an appallingly tight race between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, it is, of course, essential that everyone vote for Romney and the GOP congressional candidates. I confess I cannot understand why anyone would vote for Obama after the worst record of failure for any first-term President since […]

By Alan Caruba ~ TonyfromOz prefaces….. Today we welcome back commentary from Alan Caruba. Alan lives in New Jersey, and where he lives was impacted by the Superstorm Sandy. Although he suffered no flooding or property damage, the electrical power was down in his area for the last week. Late Yesterday afternoon, the power finally […]

Choices and Negativity

November 5, 2012 by

0

A Dry Bones Cartoon ~ Yup! Everybody seems to have something bad to say about the other guy! Politics is not about who is best, but rather about which is the lesser of two evils. Sad, and self-destructive for Western democracy, society, and civilization. Read More by Yaakov Kirschen at Dry Bones . http://drybonesblog.blogspot.com/

Failing to Learn from Our Mistakes

November 2, 2012 by

1

By Amil Imani ~ Is it a case of ordained fate we cannot escape or is it that We the People are too dense to learn from our mistakes? Paging through humanity’s history, time and again we find numerous instances of costly mistakes where people ignore facts and reason by entrusting their lives to a […]

Democracy Rising PA – Be An Active Part Of An Honest Election

October 31, 2012 by

0

By Tim Potts ~ There are two parts to an honest election. One is preventing ineligible people from voting. That’s why PA has a new voter ID law, even though it won’t take full effect until 2013 and even though voter impersonation is already a crime. The other part of an honest election is making […]

Sandy’s Coup de Gras for Obama

October 30, 2012 by

0

By Alan Caruba ~ Remember how Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath was blamed on President Bush? Remember his words to then-FEMA director, “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job”? No doubt FEMA is all geared up for the damage Hurricane Sandy will do throughout the Northeast and wide swatches to the West. And no doubt it […]

Revisiting Voting Blocs. Are They More Fluid These Days?

October 28, 2012 by

0

By Alan Caruba ~ It has long been a tradition in American politics to speak of voting blocs, but in an era of 24/7 news and instant communications, that may be less likely as an indicator of who votes for who. For example, The Jewish Press, the largest orthodox Jewish weekly, came out with a […]

Obama – The Favorite Of Every Voter Who Isn’t American

By Andrew Bolt ~ TonyfromOz prefaces….. Note on this graph of Worldwide support for president Obama where the support lies for those Australians polled for this result, second highest on this list and at a ratio of 11 to 1  for Obama. This is due to one thing only. Virtually the only network here in […]

The EPA’s Planned Destruction of The U.S. Economy

October 24, 2012 by

0

By Alan Caruba ~ If there was no other reason to defeat President Obama in November, it would be the planned destruction of what is left of the U.S. economy by the Environmental Protection Agency. In “A Look Ahead to EPA Regulations for 2012” the minority staff (Republican) of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment […]

Climate Change A Complete Non Issue In U.S. Election

October 24, 2012 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ TonyfromOz prefaces….. As you watch the video below, pay particular attention at the 9.04 mark where (then Senator) Barack Obama says that Climate Change is one of the biggest challenges of our times, and now, barely four years later, the sound of crickets chirping. The Australian Federal Government Minister For Climate […]

Islam’s Many Murders of Americans

By Alan Caruba ~ Editor’s Note: This commentary was written prior to the third presidential debate. Moments in history are markers from which we are expected to draw some lessons. Thus, October 23, 1983, twenty-nine years ago, was the date of the bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon. It had been preceded […]

The Monday Brief from The Patriot Post  ~ The Foundation “National defense is one of the cardinal duties of a statesman.” –John Adams Final Debate Memo to Mitt From Mark Alexander Last week, I met with one of the brightest Republican Senators in Congress, a longtime friend. I asked him if he thought Obama’s October […]

Candy Crowley Self-Destructs

October 19, 2012 by

0

By Brent Bozell ~ Just how badly did CNN’s Candy Crowley destroy her first (and hopefully last) attempt as a presidential debate moderator? More than 65 million people saw that she is to debate moderation as CNN is to “news.” Barack Obama made a fatal mistake when he lied, claiming he’d labeled the Libya attack […]

Fear, Anxiety, and Anticipation

October 18, 2012 by

By Alan Caruba ~ I will watch the next and last presidential debate, but only reluctantly. It is the job of pundits to keep informed, but I have been suffering from an overload of information about Barack Obama since before he was elected and all of it suggested he would do a lot of damage […]

On The Road To Death Panels

October 18, 2012 by

By Star Parker ~ We should spend our attention on restoring the values that could rebuild families, produce more children and stop destroying the unborn. With the first presidential debate and the only vice-presidential debate behind us, it seems pretty clear that so-called “social issues” are not going to get much attention in this year’s […]

What I Heard at the Debate

October 17, 2012 by

0

By Alan Caruba ~ As civil as the debate may have seemed, it was a brawl. Central to it were all the lies President Obama continues to tell about his record in office and about his challenger, Mitt Romney. And Romney would not let him get away with it. Time and again he rose to […]
