Aqua Budda Says Its Time For My Election Predictions, So Here Goes
31 Oct 2010 9:54 pm Jeff Dunetz
OK its time, because thinks have been so close and so fluid, I have yet to make my final prediction for the 2010 mid term election. But last night it all came to me in a dream, one of the key players of this election season, Aqua Budda was hovering over my bed telling me “its time Jeff, you need to man up.”
Maybe Aqua is correct, but on the other side, it is much too cold to go into the water, but either way below are my predictions for the …
John Stewart’s Speech Served Conservative Ends
31 Oct 2010 7:02 pm Brian Garst
It’s easy to be critical of the attendees at the recent Stewart/Colbert non-political but political non-rally rally, and for good reason. As a group, they are hard to take seriously. Egged on by Stewart’s Daily Show, they routinely confuse conviction for extremism, and the possession of neither information nor principles with moderation. Most of them are actually just standard liberals pretending to be moderate, anyway. There is also room to be critical of the rally itself, as Cat …View More...
Leftists Deny KTVA Conspiracy to Smear Joe Miller
31 Oct 2010 4:37 pm Donald Douglas
The most interesting thing about the denial is that, you know, “it’s just another Breitbart operation … nothing to take seriously.” Of course, in each of the previous scandals Breitbart’s evidence has been clear and incriminating. What’s also been clear is that the Democrat-Media-Industrial-Complex pushes back so hard — with willing accomplices elsewhere in the left’s institutional state structures — that the meme of fakery and fraud is successfully planted, allowing those pimps, bigots, and corruptocrats to get off the hook, ultimately, with minimal consequences. Yet in this case, once …View More...
Video: Welcome to ‘Smug-A-Palooza’: a Fake Rally for the Arrogant
31 Oct 2010 12:53 pm Warner Todd Huston
Think you’re smarter than everyone else? Think you are more “civilized,” more “adult,” and more “informed” than all around you? Then your arrogance makes you a perfect contestant for the Comedy Central Shark-Jumping event with the two… well, I guess you call them “comedians”… Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
They think quite a bit about themselves, don’t they?
The newest estimate of the crowd size was around 200,000. That is a good, large number to be sure. But it is still far, far less than Beck drew and it must be pointed …

Charles Johnson’s ‘Peace Train’ to Islamofascism — UPDATED!!
31 Oct 2010 12:05 pm Donald Douglas
UPDATE: Don’t miss Aaron Worthing’s brilliant post this morning, “Charles Johnson Shreds the Last of his Credibility Discussing the Stewart Rally.”
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, Charles Johnson wrote what may have been the authoritative anti-jihad post on Cat Stevens, a.k.a. Yusuf Islam: “Are You Ready for Islamopop?” (safe link).
Well, the dude live-streamed Stewart/Colbert’s lefty-lovefest, “Live Video: Rally to Restore Sanity And/or Fear” (safe link).
Yep. King Charles himself now leads the Islamofascist fifth column.

Texas Patriots Facing The Left’s Smear Machine
31 Oct 2010 11:40 am Warner Todd Huston
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am here all week in Texas in Houston’s 18th Congressional District observing the energetic and determined work of the King Street Patriots as they implement their poll-watching initiative, True The Vote.
True The Vote made news early this month when initiative Chief Catherine Engelbrecht discovered that a former Service Employee International Union (SEIU) member had turned in over 23 thousand fraudulent voter registration cards. Englebrecht and the King Streeters then decided that they would initiate a grassroots poll-watching effort to make sure that …
Death Of The West: Creeping Shariah
31 Oct 2010 11:35 am Warner Todd Huston
The worst aspect of the Muslim invasion of the west is the alarming way that Islam is undermining Western culture using the west’s own liberal, democratic processes to do so. Muslims are using our own best philosophy against us and it is working to destroy our own culture, laws, and traditions, not just in the U.S. — where the effect has been less destructive to date — but also in Europe — where it has been more pernicious.
Overseas, creeping shariah has already damaged western societies. One example appears in England …

Mo Dowd Blasts, Nay, Destroys, President Dude
31 Oct 2010 8:59 am William Teach
Obviously, Maureen Dowd will assuaredly vote for Obama in 2012, yet, one can certainly see her pushing for a different Democrat to be the 2012 runner. She is not a happy bunny
Barack Obama became president by brilliantly telling his own story. To stay president, he will need to show he can understand our story.
At first it was exciting that Obama was the sort of brainy, cultivated Democrat who would be at home in a “West Wing” episode.
It starts well, but, after only two paragraphs, you get the feeling …
Insane: New York Times Sells False Meme of ‘Reasonable’ Stewart-Colbert Rally
31 Oct 2010 12:58 am Donald Douglas
Folks at the fish wrap of record really do need to get out more. See, “At Rally, Thousands — Billions? — Respond” (at Memeorandum).
The unwavering message is that the Stewart “Rally for Sanity” was uniquely reasonable, ” a political event like no other.” I wasn’t there. But I’ve live-blogged this event all day, and I’ve gotten lots of information from folks who were on the ground, and obviously NYT has airbrushed the rowdier elements out of their “Rally for Sanity” coverage.
Especially interesting is the Times‘ total disregard for …

Reich to businesses: stay away from those Tea Partiers, or no more government cheese!
30 Oct 2010 3:30 pm TrogloPundit
Former something-something Secretary Robert Reich has a warning for businesses: fear the Tea Party! Because they hate government, and they’ll cut spending, and…
…no, really, that’s his argument. Read it for yourself:
Beyond fiscal rectitude and less spending, tea party candidates are targeting the central institutions of American government. The GOP Senate candidate from Kentucky, Rand Paul, is among several who want to abolish the Federal Reserve.
It’s true: whether the Fed survives or not (prediction: it will) will have ramifications on America’s economy. But those ramifications are unknown, and …
NPR’s carefully crafted tales — and why I don’t listen any more
30 Oct 2010 2:32 pm Bookworm
When I left law school, a switch tripped in my brain. Whereas before I’d listened only to top twenty music, I suddenly got bored with music and switched to news. But not just any news. NPR news. Whenever I was in the car, I had my radio tuned to my local public radio station. In those days, I spent a lot of time in the care, so I listened to a lot of the stories flowing from that station. I considered myself extremely well-informed. …View More...
Two New Crimes Made in the Name of Alan Grayson
30 Oct 2010 1:41 pm Jeff Dunetz
Now I am not saying any of this happened because Alan Grayson is one of the slimiest people in congress. Nor am I implying that it happened because Grayson’s campaign manager, Suzannah Randolph, is a former ACORN lobbyist and political director, in fact the campaign denies that it had anything to do with them, but today there were two dirty tricks revealed to be happening in Florida’s 8th Congressional District, along with being sleazy both incidents were illegal.

Obama Justice Dept. Denies Military Vote, Blames GOP
30 Oct 2010 12:31 pm Warner Todd Huston
The head of the Obama Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, Tom Perez, admitted this week that he has no real intention of trying to assure that members of our military are afforded their right to vote, and will not attempt in a timely fashion to enforce the MOVE Act (Military and Overseas Voter Empower Act) intended to make sure that our soldiers get their ballots with time enough to return them so that they can be counted on election day.
Perez made a very weak pledge that the Dept. of Justice …
Memo For File CXXIII
30 Oct 2010 11:13 am Morgan Freeberg
I was reading through that Shelby Steele article that was making its way around the innerwebs in the last couple of days, the one that talks about the democrat party’s “bad faith” in America and how it came to be. Perhaps inspired by this, the Review & Outlook editors of Wall Street Journal gave their readers a rather priceless run-down of the relevant events since those tumultuous sixties. As I understand what they are offering, it is a history that begins with a bang followed by a multitude of pulses; …View More...
UNICEF: Trick or Treat for Abortion
30 Oct 2010 11:08 am Chris Wysocki
Each year around this time I remind my readers that those ubiquitous orange UNICEF boxes their kids bring home from school are not nearly as innocuous as they seem. UNICEF undoubtedly does some good work. But there is a dark side to their mission. Abortion. UNICEF continues to fund programs that encourage more abortions, especially in Latin America and Africa.
In 2007 I noted that UNICEF has de-emphasized their focus on children and moved into the women’s rights and radical feminism arenas:

Video: Left-Wing Hater Tries to Choke a Conservative Rally Attendee
30 Oct 2010 10:58 am Warner Todd Huston
On October 19 outside the venue where a candidate debate was about to be held between Arizona’s Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords and her Republican challenger Jesse Kelly, a MoveOn.org-style, left-wing activist physically accosted a lone conservative that had the temerity to yell back and challenge the leftist’s outrageous claims.
The violence prone leftist, a distempered fellow named Fred Highton, was whining about Republicans with an electric PA system outside the University of Arizona. Highton was there with a whole cadre of comrades to protest “Rpublicorp” Republicans. After listening to Highton’s blather, …
It’s Come to This: Communist Party USA Openly Collaborates With Democrats
30 Oct 2010 9:52 am Doug Ross
They’re not even trying to hide it any longer.
The Communist Party USA is openly and actively collaborating with the Democrat National Committee, Obama’s personal campaign (Organizing for America), MorOn.org, Rock the Vote and the AFL-CIO.
Notice the creepy, ubiquitous Obama iconography.
You can’t escape it. And consider — you’re putting your ballot in a cardboard box with an Obama logo on it — what could go wrong?
Just wondering: when did it become acceptable among Democrats to openly collaborate with Communists, whose stated goal is the destruction of the American economy?
Or, put …
