BRILLIANT take-down of CNN, a CNN reporter, a CNN anchor, and its hideously biased agenda-driven editing

I’ll get to the point in a second. But first (and I promise this is related), I read my usual National Review articles this morning and copied this nugget: Conservatism must be about explaining to non-conservatives why they should be conservative not why they can’t be. This is politics 101 going back to Aristotle: Persuasion. ~ by […]

Pew dec poll 2015

America Trusts GOP on: Terrorism, Gun Control, Economy, Immigration

Climate change and the environment are the only things in which Americans favor the Democrats in the most recent Pew Research poll. And most of the rest of their substantial poll also bodes very poorly for Democrats. So in the coming weeks expect some big broadcast specials and multi-week in-depth analyses on all the mainstream […]

MSNBC and Sharpton on WaPo poll: intellectual irreverence.

  The “Reverend” (huge air quotes) Al Sharpton is misnamed. His name should be Irreverence Al Sharpton. I’ll just go ahead and call him Sharpton from now on. Sharpton put up a few bar charts today on his audibly and intellectually intolerable MSNBC show, including this one: It’s an Obamanation of misinformation. The poll, conducted […]

MSNBC: A Media Campaign to Insult and Smear Conservatives

  We know that MSNBC is rabidly left-wing and full of socialists and sundry smug progressive blowhards.  We know they have long retired any pretense of procuring honest political reporting, in favor of rooting for and covering for Obama and even further leftists. But sometimes I feel like I should pick a random day and […]

Finally, GOP answers door. A Crack.

Is timidity and naval-gazing now the official ingenious Republican strategy for winning political battles? The party seems almost to be trying not to win in the court of public opinion. And it’s so easy to win. I’ve been knocking the GOP for not fighting the popular (Obamacult) opinion being built by liberals and their media, […]

Ted Cruz for US President? How about Ted Cruz for Canadian PM?

  As posted at ProudToBeCanadian.ca and JoelJohannesen.com   Is the Dallas Morning News is messing with us conservative Canucks? Trying to get us all excited about an actual conservative running for office? Sadly no. They’re just spelling out the kerfuffle surrounding the US Constitutional verbiage around citizenship and the presidency. US law demands that a […]

The times are a changin’: If it ever hopes to see the White House again, GOP must tap into growing Hispanic demographic

It’s really quite simple. If the Republicans want to win a presidential election, they have to win the support of the only constituency that is large enough to make a significant difference and is actually expanding. The black population is not growing and, even declining, in percentage terms, and white upper-middle class families have so […]

Deport the GOP Establishment

On no issue is the elite/American divide so great as on immigration. For decades, a majority of Americans have wanted to decrease immigration. Not just illegal immigration — all immigration. Nearly three times as many Americans support reducing immigration as want it to stay the same, according to Gallup polls. A grand total of 5 […]

Re-elect Obama: Vote Newt!

To talk with Gingrich supporters is to enter a world where words have no meaning. They denounce Mitt Romney as a candidate being pushed on them by “the Establishment” — with “the Establishment” defined as anyone who supports Romney or doesn’t support Newt. Gingrich may have spent his entire life in Washington and be so […]

Palin: Congress, it’s time to stop lining your pockets

Sarah Palin’s recent article came to mind this morning.  I’d been watching more coverage and reading more about the evil, extreme left-wing dictator Kim Jung Il’s belated death (about which I’m very pleased, by the way, and that is not something I say very often). But it got me thinking about western government and politicians […]

Newt Gingrich Fox News debate Dec 2011

Newt: Speak Bombastically and Carry a Tiny Stick

Fellow right-wingers: Is our objective to taunt Obama by accusing him of “Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior,” of being “authentically dishonest” and a “wonderful con” — and then lose the election — or is it to defeat Obama, repeal ObamaCare, secure the borders, enforce e-verify, reform entitlement programs, reduce the size of government and save the country? […]

Newt Presents a Fresh New Virtual Face

Before you newly active Republicans commit to Newt Gingrich​ as your presidential nominee on the basis of the recent debates, here’s a bit of Newt history you ought to know. I promise you, it’s going to come up if he’s the candidate. The day after the Republicans’ historic takeover of the House of Representatives in […]

If Not Romney, Who? If Not Now, When?

So now, apparently, we have to go through the cycle of the media pushing Newt Gingrich​. This is going to be fantastic. In addition to having an affair in the middle of Clinton’s impeachment; apologizing to Jesse Jackson​ on behalf of J.C. Watts — one of two black Republicans then in Congress –- for having […]
