1. It’s a Strategy, Not a Conspiracy

I’ve written at length about the destructive energy policies of the Left and of the Obama Administration. Specifically, their hostility toward domestic producers and the producing states will inevitably lead to higher unemployment and a stagnant economy in the near term; long term, they imperil our national security.What could possibly motivate them?Some say that Obama is merely the puppet of an evil conspiracy which is bent on our destruction.Others say that Obama thinks he is acting in the country’s best interest, but that his perspective is limited and his worldview is skewed.It is important for us to act as if it is the latter, and here’s why.Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. 67% disapprove of legislators fleeing Wisconsin to avoid vote

Two-thirds of likely voters disapprove of Wisconsin legislators fleeing the stat to avoid their duty to vote.New Rasmussen Reports polling finds America’s voters strongly oppose Wisconsin state senators fleebagging tactics to avoid a vote that would restrict collective bargaining rights for government workers’ unions.Only 25% of likely U.S. Voters approve of this failed 2003-vintage Democrat tactic.Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. University of Central Florida Hosts Terrorists & Forcibly Removes Their Detractors

While it’s certainly the case that a University may host an event paneled by individuals that the University leadership does not agree with or even may find reprehensible, it starts to look more like endorsement when they get into the habit of tossing law abiding citizens for asking questions of the University guest that may be uncomfortable.Such was the case in the almost universally overlooked incident that took place at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in November of last year.Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. Moving RINOS Rightward is Good, Defeating them is even Better

Well, the dust has settled from the 2010 legislative session, and organizations like National Journal and American Conservative Union have published their annual voting reports. So who are the ‘top conservatives’? You’ll never guess.Please click here for the rest of the post.

5. Secret White House Meetings

Remember all that highfalutin rhetoric from Barack Obama about not doing business with lobbyists, etc? Well, we already knew it was a lie given the number of lobbyists he let into the White House to work after saying he wouldn’t.But it appears the lie is a serial lie. Obama is having his minion take meetings with lobbyists routinely, but they are doing it outside the White House across the street.Why?Because he can say no lobbyists have been to the White House.Please click here for the rest of the post.
