The Gold Meltdown – Gold Futures Come Unglued While Individuals Buy The Metal

by Mike April 17, 2013

As central banks continue to print fiat currency like crazy, amid a competitive devaluationary race to the bottom (currency war), you’d expect regular commodities to cost more in terms of paper money (inflation), regardless of bogus government statistics telling you it ain’t so. And most of us have noticed the necessities of life are costing […]

The Undead TEA Party vs The Dead Democrat Voters

by Mike May 14, 2012

A funny thing happened at the polls this week. Hot on the heels of yet another James O’Keefe expose of how the dead could “vote”, and were probably voting Democrat, we learned that the death of the TEA party has been greatly exaggerated, and those very much living voters trounced RINO Dick Lugar last Tuesday.

Connecting the Soros Dots: Stacy McCain, Matthew Vadum, and a FlashBeck

by Mike May 13, 2012

We have some pretty good investigators here at Grok, but on the national scene, few are as observant as Stacy McCain, or as willing to turn over Democrat rocks as Matthew Vadum.

Another Fraudian Slip from the Obama Administration?

by Mike May 12, 2012

Talk about target-rich environment. Not so much foot in mouth, as carefully pacing foot in front of shotgun and yelling “pull”! The layered birth certificate, the odd datestamp on the Selective Service Card, the composite imaginary girlfriend (or was it Ayers’ girlfriend?), and now the fake situation room photo. Was Obama really MIA so much […]

Obama Cannibalizes Advanced Dog Training Program!!!

by Mike May 12, 2012

You can’t make this stuff up. Obama is going to be dogged for the rest of the campaign, and it will all be self-inflicted, because the O-team keeps, umm, stepping in it, although as Skip points out, ‘Our job is a much simpler one: Point and laugh at all of it.’ In a combination of […]

If Obama’s Lost The Guardian, He’s Truly Lost the Left

by Mike May 12, 2012

So eager is Obama to crow about, and take credit for, military and intelligence operations, that his administration has now exceeded even the perfidy of the New York Times. Not content to simply announce that they had apprehended a potential bomber with a new type of underwear bomb (gives a whole new meaning to the […]

Karma Burns Obama’s Dogma – A Finn-donesian Barbecue?

by Mike May 10, 2012

Obama’s green dogma doesn’t seem to be having much more luck than the dogs of his youth! H/T to Seton Motley and the crew over at LessGovernment.org for this gem, and to Breitbart’s Big-Government for the graphic.

Romney Channels His Inner…… Thatcher???

by Mike May 4, 2012

Now that Mitt Romney has turned his attention to defeating Barack Obama, instead of destroying other Republicans, I must grudgingly admit that he seems to “get it”, especially after today’s article in The Hill, where he mocked Obama’s ‘new’ communist campaign slogan ‘Forward, what, over the cliff?’. But then I saw this campaign video, and […]

FORWARD: Socialism or Death! Are You Serious Mr President? Are You Serious?

Barry the Marxist and Joe the Gaffer rolled out a new campaign slogan today, but just like most ideas from the left, it has an old and tarnished history. H/T the Drudge Report, for picking up on the Washington Times article titled New Obama Slogan Has Long Ties To Marxism, Socialism, and adding the rather […]
