Barack Obama: Born in Kenya?

20120518-000122.jpg
Was Barack Obama born in Kenya, or did he intentionally lie?

Was Barack Obama born in Kenya? He says no, yet a biography he used from 1991 to 2007 indicates he was in fact born in Kenya. His literary agent claims it was an error, yet he didn’t see fit to correct it until 2007, when he began his run for the Presidency. Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

 
 

Raising the debt ceiling: Here we go again!

John Boehner and Barack Obama

House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama

Barack Obama wants Congress to raise the debt ceiling again. Democrats love spending and will vote for any increase he wants, while Republicans will fight any increase without major spending cuts. That just about sums up the argument, on a very simple, superficial level.

The National Debt is a growing problem which needs to be addressed. Unfortunately, the President and Congressional leaders don’t see it as a problem. They say they do, but they don’t

Barack Obama has done a horrendous job as President. Federal spending is out of control and the National Debt is growing rapidly. John Boehner and the Republicans have every right to demand major spending cuts. Unfortunately, there are two problems. First, they should have started acting as the debt ceiling police years ago when George W. Bush and his predecessors were President. They also need to propose meaningful cuts, not just token cuts to appeal to the base. » read more

 
 

A very early look ahead to 2016

Republican Elephant and Democrat Donkey

Even if Mitt Romney wins, both parties could have primaries in 2016.

I was thinking about the 2016 Presidential Election recently. That’s right, 2016.

I’ve seen several stories that have mentioned the possibility of Hillary Clinton or (hold the laughter) Joe Biden running in 2016. Here’s a question: If Barack Obama loses, which I think seems likely, will he run again in 2016? If so, we could see a repeat of the 2008 election.

This scenario also led me to think about Mitt Romney’s chances in 2016 if he should win in 2012. I’m not referring to the General Election, but rather the primary. Romney will be the Republican nominee in 2012, but if he becomes president, is it a foregone conclusion that he would win in 2016? I don’t think so. » read more

 
 

Autopsy results support George Zimmerman’s story

George Zimmerman

Autopsy results seem to support George Zimmerman's account

Some of the autopsy results in the Trayvon Martin case have been released. They show that Trayvon Martin had two injuries. The first was the gunshot wound. The second injury was to his knuckles.

If George Zimmerman’s account of the incident is true, then Martin’s knuckles were likely injured while he was busy breaking George Zimmerman’s nose, giving him two black eyes, or slamming his head into the sidewalk. Here’s a point to ponder: If George Zimmerman started the altercation, then where are the injuries on Trayvon Martin?

 
 

Time and Newsweek aren’t much better than tabloid trash

Barack Obama: “The First Gay President.”

This week’s issue of Newsweek features a photo of Barack Obama with a rainbow halo and a headline proclaiming him as the “First Gay President.”. Of course, Barack Obama isn’t gay, it’s just Newsweek’s way of shocking people and grabbing headlines. I guess they’re not confident in the quality of their writing, and decided to use tabloid techniques to sell magazines.

It could also be a reaction to Time Magazine, which decided to place a picture of a woman breast feeding her child. That alone would be questionable, but when you take into account that the child was pretty big in comparison to his mother, it seemed very strange. Actually, sick is probably a better word. » read more

 
 

Barack Obama: 1 or 44?

Quick question: Is Barack Obama the first black President, or the 44th white one?

 
 

Republican mistakes, and the threat of complacency

Mitt Romney

What does Mitt Romney really believe?

The more I think about it, the more I think I might be too conservative to be a Republican. On both the local and national level, I’ve seen things that have made my head spin. It has me wondering if I would be better off as an independent, without the baggage associated with the hypocrites and flakes.

Republicans have rightly criticized Barack Obama for his socialist-leaning views, and their warning that things will get worse if he were to be reelected. My problem is with the revisionism and lack of insight amongst many in our party.

Jon McNaughton: One Nation Under Socialism

For those who are fans of fine art and small government, artist Jon McNaughton has created another painting you might want to check out. I’d also suggest visiting Jon McNaughton’s official site, which has a dizzying array of beautiful art work.

 
 

George Zimmerman: Guilty in the court of public opinion

Trayvon Martin Twitter Picture

Trayvon Martin

When I first heard about Trayvon Martin’s death, I was stunned. How could a kid walking to a convenience store for an iced tea and a bag of Skittles be killed? From the initial reports, Martin was killed by George Zimmerman, who appeared to be a loose cannon. Why would he murder a kid buying a snack? Was Trayvon Martin profiled because he was a black teenager? There were lots of questions that needed answering, including why George Zimmerman wasn’t charged and arrested for murdering Trayvon Martin. Of course, a funny thing happened on the way to answering those questions: The truth began to leak out.

According to early reports, it appeared that Martin was targeted by a racist white man. Well, George Zimmerman isn’t white. He’s hispanic, identifies himself as hispanic, and has almost the same skin color as Barack Obama, who said that Trayvon Martin resembles what his own son might have looked like. To this point, there’s also no evidence that Zimmerman has a history of racist behavior.

Rick Santorum uses protection

Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown

Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown jokes about Rick Santorum.

Here is a joke I thought you might like, courtesy of Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown:

“I’m hopeful that all of you are actually following presidential politics. I see that both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum now have secret service with them on the campaign trail and in Santorum’s case, I think it’s the first time he’s actually ever used protection, so yeah, yeah. Just saying,” Brown said.

 
 

Socialist Elle Macpherson supports Barack Obama

Model Elle Macpherson

Model Elle Macpherson turns her back on common sense.

Supermodel Elle Macpherson was recently on the Howard Stern show. At one point, the conversation turned to politics:

HOWARD STERN: Who should be the next President of the United States Elle MacPherson, go ahead.

ELLE MACPHERSON: I think Obama’s going to do it.

STERN: You like Obama?

MACPHERSON: Yeah, I’m living in London and I’m socialist. What do you expect?

STERN: And you’re living in London and you sense what other foreigners feel. Do they like him?

MACPHERSON: I think foreigners like him. He’s very popular.

One person can’t control gas prices

20120317-203105.jpg

I’m hoping Barack Obama is a one-term President for a variety of reasons that I won’t regurgitate in this post. Defeating him is important, but I’m hoping the Republican nominee won’t use pie-in-the-sky predictions to gain favor with voters. Eventually, such tall tales will catch-up to him and undermine his credibility. The first potential pitfall to come to mind are promises to lower gas prices.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has often said that gas prices would fall below $2.49 per gallon if he were elected. He points out that such a fall would put money into the pockets of consumers, which would be pumped into the economy, corporate profits would be increased, fueling growth, and tax receipts would climb. These positive events would likely follow lower gas prices. The problem is that Gingrich thinks he can single-handedly bring down prices in the span of a single administration. This isn’t likely.

Memo to Drudge: Is this news?

20120317-092354.jpg

I check the Drudge Report daily, and on a typical day, I check it several times. It’s a great way to keep up on the news, and it typically links to stories you won’t find in the main-stream media. It’s a great site, but sometimes, it leaves me shaking my head.

I’m used to the frequently misleading captions that link to articles on other sites. That’s annoying, but today, I think it topped itself. It’s headline featured the headline “Rick Rico ,” with a pictures of Rick Santorum wearing only swim trunks. This is news?

More U.S. deaths, and still no comment

20120226-210907.jpg

It has been nearly a week since protests over Koran burnings began in Afghanistan. Barack Obama quickly apologized to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, but to this point, there have been no apologies for the 6 U.S. soldiers who were shot, two killed, by an Afghan soldier. Not surprisingly, there also hasn’t been any apology for the two U.S. officers who were murdered by a member of the Afghan security force.

To be honest, I don’t care about an apology. This entire episode should provide definitive proof to everyone that we don’t belong in Afghanistan. We are losing American lives defending a savage people who deserve nothing from us. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration doesn’t get it.

Rick Santorum’s utopian theocracy

Rick Sanotrum as a Catholic Priest

Rick Santorum seems like he would be right at home running a Parish...or a theocracy.

I dislike Rick Santorum for several reasons, but the biggest is how he forces me to side with Democrats. Santorum is so confused, that his ridiculous comments can’t go unchallenged.

In his latest rant to be unearthed, he criticizes John F. Kennedy’s 1960 speech about religion to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association. “Earlier in my political career, I had the opportunity to read the speech, and I almost threw up. You should read the speech,” said Santorum

In a recent interview with George Stephanopoulos, Santorum adds:

Sacha Baron Cohen will get the last laugh

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen as "The Dictator."

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen was banned from the Academy Awards when he mentioned he might arrive dressed as his character from “The Dictator.” The movie seems like it will be funny, and is described as a “heroic story of a Middle Eastern dictator who risks his life to ensure that democracy never comes to the country he so lovingly oppressed”.

I guess the Academy didn’t want to offend Middle Eastern dictators

 
 

Barack Obama’s disgraceful apology

President Barack Obama

President Barack Obama was quick to apologize for the United States...again.

Just when you think Barack Obama can’t sink any lower, he manages to break another depth record. This time, he apologized to Afghanistan’s President, Hamid Karzai, for accidentally disposing of copies of the Koran in an inappropriate fashion. This action led to massive protests in Afghanistan, along with the Taliban calling for death to America (what a shock!).

On any day, the apology would bother me, but on this day in particular, it angers me. An Afghan soldier shot six American soldiers, killing two. At this time, I haven’t heard about any apologies from Hamid Karzai, yet we have an apology from Barack Obama for throwing books away incorrectly, and in the past, an apology from George W. Bush for a sniper who shot a Koran. Maybe it’s me, but I think double murder of two soldiers is a serious matter.

The growing dependent class

Nearly half (49.5%) of Americans don’t pay income tax. At first, you might be appalled, but let’s not lose sight of the true problem. The bottom 50% pay no income tax, but considering that I don’t believe anyone should be paying an income tax, that doesn’t concern me. What I do find troubling is the amount of government dependence in the bottom 50%.

In 1984, just just 14.8% of Americans didn’t pay income taxes. In the past 28 years, this has resulted in increasing redistribution of wealth and dependence on government. This group isn’t paying taxes, many are dependent on government, and in many cases, being rewarded for bad decisions.

The authors of the study added this quote, which should make us all think about the road to ruin we are heading down.

“This trend should concern everyone who supports America’s republican form of government,” Beach and Tyrrell wrote. “If the citizens’ representatives are elected by an increasing percentage of voters who pay no income tax, how long will it be before these representatives respond more to demands for yet more entitlements and subsidies from non-payers than to the pleas of taxpayers to exercise greater spending prudence?”

 
 

There should be only one Presidential candidate for the Tea Party

Congressman and Presidential candidate Ron Paul

For Tea Party members, Ron Paul should be the only choice.

There has been a lot of talk about the Tea Party, and what effect its members will have on the Presidential race. So far, it has been much ado about nothing.

All of the candidates have attempted to court the Tea Party to some extent, but it should be a wasted of time, since only one candidate represents the group’s alleged philosophy. If you support a balanced budget, then how can you vote for someone who voted to raise the debt ceiling several times, and is a big spender? Santorum is bad, but Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are no better.

If one of them is elected President, I have no doubt they will spend less than Barack Obama. Unfortunately, the cuts proposed by them are miniscule, and would do little to reduce the deficit, let alone the National Debt. If you don’t believe me, check out the size of the deficit, then read their plans. Are they really going to right America’s ship?

Ron Paul calls Rick Santorum a “Fake” fiscal conservative

In his newest ad, Presidential candidate Ron Paul takes aim at Rick Santorum for being a “fake” fiscal conservative. I wonder how Santorum would defend this record of big-spending.
