Meet The Press – Stephanie Cutter sees no difference between Socialists and Liberal Democrats

by Skip January 17, 2016

On Meet The Press today, Steve Schmidt (of the failed McCain campaign) brought out that 43% of Iowa Democrats self identify as Socialists and not as capitalists.  I didn’t know that but it is an eye-popping statistic lending credence that the Democrat Party has gone far more Left than the Republicans have gone  Right.  After […]

Rush: Obama’s gun Executive Orders will not stop:

by Skip January 12, 2016

Emphasis mine: “Obama stressed the need for executive gun control as a way to lessen “mass violence” in America, and he coupled the emphasis on “mass violence” with a need to expand background checks–as if doing the latter will reduce the former. But Limbaugh was not fooled, and he pointed out five things Obama’s gun controls […]

Notable Quote – yes, the press corp agrees with Obama

by Skip January 10, 2016

As if we didn’t know already, but here is a confirmation: “I wanted him to actually address people who disagree with him, not just people who agree with him that so often happens at, you know, a presidential news conference.” -Anderson Cooper, CNN host, admitting the press corp is composed of people like Obama (H/T: […]

GOP DEBATES ON CNN CRUSH OBAMA’S TOWN HALL RATINGS: “The President’s two hour-long appearance with Anderson Cooper on Thursday managed 2.4 million viewers. In comparison, a staggering 23.1 million people tuned in for CNN’s GOP debate in September.” I wonder what Obama thought (“Gack, I’m losing to THOSE losers??”).  Not exactly an ego booster to […]

This is an enormous lie, but I expect that from Obama. What I’m more interested in seeing is who in New Hampshire repeats it and who does not knowing they can be easily shown as a fool and a liar to boot. "A violent felon can buy the exact same weapon over the internet with […]

“[H]ere’s the thing: In December, we never left Washington, D.C., until the day after Christmas. Never. Mr. Bush and his wife, Laura, would always depart the White House a few days before the holiday and hunker down at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland,” Curl wrote in a 2013 column that was republished Thursday.

Woodrow Wilson fit this mold.  The Socialists of the Frankfurt School did as well.

WSJ | How does a man who entered the White House vowing to restore science to its proper place tell us that gun control is the answer to terrorism? After all, California already has strict gun control, as does France, which just had its second terrorist massacre this year. Not to mention that the one […]
