BREAKING: Murkowski Concedes in Alaska
  31 Aug 2010      11:20 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Another one of Mitch McConnell’s favorites just went down in flames as Senator Lisa Murkowski just bowed to Alaska’s new GOP candidate for Senate, Joe Miller.
Miller is far more conservative than Murkowski who was vying for the Ted Stevens award for pork.
As the New York Times says…

Mr. Miller shocked the political establishment here and in Washington last week when he emerged with a narrow lead, 1,668 votes, after the primary vote, on Aug. 24.

Chalk up another win for a Palin pick, too, as Miller got former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s …

Obama Ends Operation Iraqi Freedom
  31 Aug 2010     11:10 pm      Donald Douglas

Follow up to John’s essay: “My Short, Obligatory Obama Speech Review.”

***********
I anticipated the president’s address in my previous post, “President Barack Obama Claims Credit on Iraq War.” I can’t add too much here, except to reiterate that I’m ashamed at Obama’s political posturing. I’m ashamed at Obama’s political opportunism, and I wish for a larger purpose than this poor president can hope to provide for those who’ve sacrificed for a better Iraq and for a better future for the Iraqis. It’s no surprise that America’s servicemen and women share this …

My Short, Obligatory Obama Speech Review
  31 Aug 2010     8:36 pm      John Hawkins

It was appropriate for Obama to give a speech to announce the end of combat operations in Iraq. It was also worth noting that he gave a kind word to President Bush, although of course, it was part of a backhanded compliment he was paying to himself,
As we do, I am mindful that the Iraq War has been a contentious issue at home. Here, too, it is time to turn the page. This afternoon, I spoke to former President George W. Bush. It’s well known that he and I disagreed …

President Barack Obama telephoned President George Bush today. The White House won’t disclose what was talked about, but this might be accurate.

A Maddening Day
  31 Aug 2010     3:51 pm      Kathleen McKinley

Some days you just want to scream.
The Arizona law is overwhelmingly popular with the American people. It mirrors federal law, and the only reason Arizona needs the law is because the federal government refuses to do it’s job. But now the Obama administration is using the law to say to the international community, “Hey, we know it’s a terrible human rights abuse. We think it’s just awful. We don’t know how Americans can support it, but we don’t. Just so you know.” The Obama administration has included the law in …

Amnesty Is Already Happening
  31 Aug 2010      2:10 pm      Dave Blount

Our leftist rulers are starting to figure out that they can’t impose their radical agenda openly without paying a heavy political price, as they will for ham-fistedly seizing control of the healthcare industry. This is why their major initiatives are now imposed in the shadows, by faceless bureaucrats rather than legislation. Granting amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens might cause open revolt. A safer approach is to quietly implement de facto amnesty:
The Department of Homeland Security is systematically reviewing thousands of pending immigration cases and moving to dismiss …

Animal Rights Terrorists Set Loose 50,000 Minks
  31 Aug 2010     2:06 pm      Dave Blount

Righteous guardians of animal welfare have struck again:
Police say break-ins at two fur farms have set more than 50,000 minks on the loose in northern Greece.
Now the 50,000 minks can live happily ever after. Or maybe not:
The National Fur Breeders’ Association says most of the released animals are likely to die in the late-August heat. It says the cost to the farm owners could pass euro1 million ($1.27 million).
No group has claimed responsibility for the incident. But an animal rights group, calling itself the “Hawks of Reprisal,” said it was …

Sure Mike Castle Drools And Christine O’Donnell Rules, But Can She Win?
  31 Aug 2010     1:59 pm      John Hawkins

My philosophy is that conservatives should generally support the most conservative candidate who can be elected in a particular state. So, if you have a RINO who has a 95% chance of winning in a primary with a conservative who has a 50% chance of winning, I’ll take the conservative candidate every time. Sure, you may lose, but if you win, at least you’ve got someone worth having in office. On the other hand, a RINO still beats a Democrat. So, if those are the options, I don’t have any …

The Right Needs to Wake up to Net Neutrality
  31 Aug 2010     12:11 pm      Warner Todd Huston

If you are as worried as I am about the left’s effort to force ever larger amounts of big government onto our lives, then you should be looking into the issue of Net Neutrality. To that end I’ll be posting some links and info about Net Neutrality to help you all get your feet wet on this important issue.
I am happy to announce that I am being joined in this effort by the United States Internet Industry Association (USIIA). Dave McClure, President and CEO of the USIIA, will be offering …

Simple Questions: If Tea Parties Are Racist Because The People Attending Are Mostly White….
  31 Aug 2010     11:24 am      John Hawkins

* Are newsrooms racist because they’re mostly white?
* Is Kos’ Netroots Nation racist because it’s mostly white?
* Are the Senate Democrats racist because their caucus is mostly white?
* If the crowd at an opera is mostly white, does that make it racist?
* How about a rap concert? Is Jay-Z a racist because most of the people showing up at his concerts are black?
* Some of the pro-immigration rallies that have been held have been attended overwhelmingly by Hispanics? Does that make them racist?
* If there are different answers here, are …

Unions hire non-union protesters?
  31 Aug 2010     11:21 am      Lee Doren

The Competitive Enterprise Institute just shot a very interesting video. It appears that Unions are now hiring non-union picketers to protest on their behalf. Watch the video and you be the judge.

Renee Ellmers Moneybomb: Can You Donate Today?
  31 Aug 2010     11:02 am      John Hawkins

Not only is Renee Ellmers an outstanding congressional candidate with a fantastic chance to take Bob Etheridge’s seat in November, she has been a real friend to Right Wing News.
She has done four guest posts so far and she gave her first written response to Bob Etheridge’s infamous video here at Right Wing News. Conservatives always say they want candidates in Congress who pay attention to the grass roots — well, Renee obviously fits that mold.
So, learn some more about Renee from her Right Wing News interview and then chip …

The Arrogance of The Public Employee Union Member
  31 Aug 2010     11:00 am      Warner Todd Huston

In a recent story detailing the efforts of 3,000 postal employee union members marching against USPS management in Detroit, one quote by a union member stuck me as wholly emblematic of the arrogance of government employee union members and it shows the disconnect between the real world and the cushy world of government workers.
As the 3,000 postal workers marched against proposed cuts in the U.S. Post office, tucked at the bottom of the Detroit Free Press piece was a quote by post office employee Kim Sauceda, of Tallevast, Florida.

“People have …

IPCC Slammed For Lies As IPCC Readies For Conference In The Exotic Vacation Spot Of Cancun
  31 Aug 2010      9:15 am      William Teach

Hey, you know, climate creationists work hard to invent their scarefests to light, making them up the same way Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhees were fictional inventions
A high-level inquiry into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found there was “little evidence” for its claims about global warming.
It also said the panel had emphasised the negative impacts of climate change and made “substantive findings” based on little proof.
The review by the InterAcademy Council (IAC) was launched after the IPCC’s hugely embarrassing 2007 benchmark climate change report, which contained exaggerated and false …

CNN’s Zakaria Presents Hezbollah as a Model of Religious Tolerance
  31 Aug 2010     9:00 am      Warner Todd Huston

Remembering that CNN’s President Jon Klein has touted its down-the-middle coverage and claims it is situated in the “center” of American politics, on a recent episode of Fareed Zakaria GPS, host Zakaria tried to claim that Lebanon’s terror group Hezbollah was some sort of model for religious tolerance. Someone should inform CNN that claiming Hezbollah is “religiously tolerant” is hardly a centrist position.
If we can discern “religious tolerance” in a group that says that the state of Israel should be wiped from the earth, then there is a new definition …

Everything You “Know” About The Right Is Wrong: 7 Myths About Conservatives
  31 Aug 2010     8:07 am      John Hawkins

This country has been successful not only because of the innate decency, creativity, and independence of the American people, but because of Christianity, capitalism, and conservatism. Unfortunately, all too often these days, conservatives spend the majority of our time correcting myths, misinformation, and misrepresentations about the movement instead of explaining our principles to people.
That’s no coincidence.
Because conservatism is so effective, its opponents have to create a false vision of conservatism to oppose because the real thing is so genuinely appealing to people. That’s not to say that there aren’t …

ACLU Sues Obama Over Targeted Killing Orders
  31 Aug 2010     8:05 am      William Teach

That would be the headline, with a change to one word, were Bush still president, rather than the generic “U.S.” used by Bloomberg News. Anyhow, the ACLU is having their typical hissy fit, and doing their darned best to protect terrorists
The American Civil Liberties Union sued the U.S. government over an alleged policy of killing American citizens who are suspected of terrorism.
The lawsuit, filed today in federal court in Washington, argued that such targeted assassinations by the government are unconstitutional.
“A program that authorizes killing U.S. citizens, without judicial oversight, due …

New Film ‘Machete’: Cynical Exploitation of America’s Racial Troubles
  31 Aug 2010      8:00 am      Warner Todd Huston

The new film Machete is born of a joke. No, really. In 2006 when Quentin Tarantino was gearing up for his double feature movie experience Grindhouse, he solicited other directors and even the fans to make fake trailers for bad 70′s exploitation moves. These trailers were shown between the two features in a takeoff of the coming attractions shown between movie features in those old 70s era B-picture film houses Tarantino was spoofing with Grindhouse. Machete was one of these over the top, fake movie trailers and it featured the …

It’s Joe Miller Time!
  31 Aug 2010      5:30 am      Melissa Clouthier

Little Old Big arse Alaska once again takes the spot light. A national drama unfolds on the state level and all eyes watch. There is a subtext in the Murkowski verses Miller primary:
Incumbent versus Tea Party
Establishment versus grassroots
Palin versus D.C.
This race and the many other Republican Senatorial races mean so much all the way around. Tim Carney gets to the heart of it:
The Alaska result is above all a blow to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. As with the primary defeat of Utah’s Bob Bennett in the spring, challenger Joe …

Why True Conservatism And Libertarianism Are Natural Allies: Restoring Honor And Shrinking Government
  30 Aug 2010     11:27 pm      Melissa Clouthier

Some libertarians watched the Beck rally with skepticism and more than a little loathing. The God thing is just too much. Reason’s Nick Gillespies’ bemused reporting from the Mall made me smile.
Libertarians have looked for small government and fiscally responsible candidates, and they seem alarmed that many of the folks who preach this religion also preach Jesus. It doesn’t seem so weird to me.
Conservative Christians, going back to the Puritans, believed and lived a brisk dose of self-reliance. That is, when you rely on yourself, you don’t have to steal …
