Constructing the Buzzword ‘Extreme’: Alinsky Rules 11 & 13
By Frank Salvato
If you are paying attention to the politics surrounding the midterm elections – and, for the good of the country, you should be – then you have, no doubt, heard almost everyone from the Left side of the aisle using the word “extreme” where the Tea Party is concerned. To a lesser extent they use it to describe the Conservative movement as a whole but without doubt, it is the descriptor of choice when anyone of the Liberal or Progressive persuasion talks about the Tea Party. This tactic comes straight from the Progressive playbook.

Will The American Spirit Survive Obama?
By Lloyd Marcus
I recently caught the last 5 minutes of "Rocky", the classic movie starring Sylvester Stallone. During the finale, Championship Boxing Exhibition, Rocky, the extreme underdog amateur, was knocked down several times by powerful punches from the reigning champion. Upon being knocked down yet again, Rocky's coach instructed, "Stay down!" Daily assaults by Obama have severely beaten down the spirit of America. He proclaims the U.S. is no longer, nor should be, the world economic leader. So how many more Obama brutal punches can the spirit of American exceptional-ism endure? Will it survive the Obama regime?

Your President
Author Unknown
It's been a horrible Summer and early Fall for the President. His approval rating is his lowest ever and the downward spiral shows no signs of abating. Bob Woodward's new book shows ugly infighting at the White House, between pragmatists and the left wing idealogues and nut jobs that Obama brought to Washington. Obama's number two, Rahm Emmanuel, leader of the pragmatists, will be gone very shortly, so that he can run for Mayor of Chicago. This will leave a huge void in the Obama machine, because whatever moderate influence Emmanuel has been able to exert will be gone, leaving the leftists in complete charge, with Reid and Pelosi to run ramshackle on the field.

The Lawyers' Party
By Bruce Walker
The Democratic Party has become the Lawyer's Party . Barack Obama is a lawyer. Michelle Obama is a lawyer. Hillary Clinton is a lawyer. Bill Clinton is a lawyer. John Edwards is a lawyer. Elizabeth Edwards is a lawyer. Every Democrat nominee since 1984 went to law school (although Gore did not graduate). Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school. Look at leaders of the Democrat Party in Congress: Harry Reid is a lawyer. Nancy Pelosi is a lawyer. The Republican Party is different.

The Anti-Rally Rally
by Paul R. Hollrah

On August 28, 2010, Fox talk show host and commentator Glen Beck held a rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. The theme of the rally was “Restore Honor,” a most worthy goal… one that modern day America needs to pursue with renewed passion. The rally was a huge success, drawing some 500,000 to 650,000 people from every state in the nation. They were orderly and well-behaved, and when the professional black rabble-rouser, Rev. Al Sharpton, announced that he would hold a counter rally in southeast Washington, just a few miles away, some feared that the two groups might clash and that the competing rallies would devolve into 60s style violence.

The Issues vs. The Mainstream Media
By Frank Salvato
Did you know that the Tea Party-backed Republican candidate for US Congress in Illinois’ 27th congressional district attends a church where they worship transgender goats? Additionally, he once allowed a parking meter to expire without surrendering himself to be fined. A local merchant, who once saw him on vacation in Zanzibar, said she believes he has a Barbie doll collection. There have even been reports that he once shared a Kit-Kat bar with Charles Manson at a Grateful Dead concert.

An Open Letter to Michael Steele
by Paul R. Hollrah
Dear Chairman Steele: As we approach what is without doubt the most crucial General Election in the history of our great country, I find myself becoming more and more what might be called an “existential” Republican. In other words, like millions of other lifelong Republicans, I find myself asking, “Does the Republican Party really exist and does it have any leaders capable of leading?” The reason I ask that question is because, day after day, month after month, we see Barack Obama and the leaders of his party all but inviting us to respond to their actions and their plans, but we see no viable response from the loyal opposition, either at the RNC or in the Congress.

Signs Of A Crumbling Regime
By Bob Livingston
Can you see it? The signs are everywhere, the regime is crumbling. No, not the Barack Obama regime, though that is part of it; maybe even the catalyst in the United States. I’m talking about the regime in general; the system. You can see it in places like Greece. There the government has been fighting for its economic life. Years of socialist redistribution — theft from the producers to finance the growing State leviathan and unionized public and private sector employees — have caught up.

Is this my new reality?
By Armand C. Hale
A friend of my just found this in an ABCNews article: For the rest of the country, the statistics are familiar and grim. Since the recession began, 7.3 million jobs have disappeared. Nearly 2.5 million homes have been repossessed. Unemployment is at 9.6 percent & economists don't expect unemployment to come down significantly anytime soon. In part, that's because of how the unemployment rate is calculated. It's based on a survey of households. Only out-of-work people who are looking for jobs are counted as unemployed.

O’Donnell Situation Smokes Out Republican Frauds
By Christopher G. Adamo
Whether or not Delaware Republican Christine O’Donnell wins her bid for the United States Senate in November, her primary victory has already achieved more than could have been accomplished by any dozen new GOP senators. For the first time in decades, voters are being presented with unassailable examples of the difference between conservatism and the treacherous reality of “business as usual” in the Republican Party. And, given such a choice, real conservatism is unquestionably advancing.

29 Reasons Why BHO Is the Greatest President Ever (If You Hate America)
By Doug Giles

Y’know, if I were a terrorist I think I’d hit America right now because I don’t think we’ve been this vulnerable since Clinton gutted our military, worked against our national security, and paved the way for 9/11. For the record, I am not a terrorist, no matter what the mutant Janeane Garofalo says. How do I know I’m not a terrorist? Well, you pretty much have to be a Muslim or a progressive to be one, and I’m not Islamic but rather a Christian and a conservative.

The Midterm Elections and the Communist Manifesto
By Joan Swirsky
When it comes to celebrating the anticipated shellacking that Democrats will take in the midterms – possibly even capturing both the House and the Senate – I’m not as sanguine, indeed giddy, as are the pundits, pollsters, and media gurus who clearly trust that today’s politics are the same as they were in pre-2009, pre-totalitarian America.

Reckoning Honestly With “Tea Party” Momentum
By: Christopher G. Adamo
Grassroots conservatism is alive and well, as evidenced by the “upset” victory of “Tea Party” candidate Christine O’Donnell over career politician and RINO Mike Castle in the Delaware Republican Senate primary. The event is already being labeled an “upset,” although at the moment it appears that only the establishment Republicans are upset.

The GOP: Locked, Loaded & Aiming for Its Own Foot...Again
By Frank Salvato

And so it begins. The establishment Republican Party has loaded the gun and is now pointing the barrel directly at its own foot; a situation all too familiar for those of us who, in the past, have watched the Republican Party snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. How they are handling the Tea Party movement – or, rather, how they are trying to man-handle the Tea Party movement – is a perfect example.

Mr. Obama, Meet Ms. Everywoman
by Paul R. Hollrah
On Tuesday, September 14, representative government was reaffirmed in the State of Delaware. After forty-five years feeding at the public trough, all the while masquerading as a Republican, career politician Mike Castle was defeated in his bid to move up another notch from the House of Representatives to the U.S. Senate. He was defeated in the state’s Republican primary by a relative newcomer to elective office, Christine O’Donnell.

Integrating the Congressional Black Caucus
by Paul R. Hollrah
In a recent letter to a group of his conservative friends, Rev. Wayne Perryman, of Seattle, described a conversation he had with one of his sons. His son wanted to know what he thought would happen after Obama leaves office. As Reverend Wayne described it, he took a deep breath, and said, “I think it will be hell for blacks in America… After Obama, very few whites will trust blacks.  Most will feel that they gave a black man a chance and he blew it.”

Documents "Embarrassing" to the President
By Armand C. Hale

"A career officer in the U.S. Army acting as a judge in the prosecution of Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin ruled the military is no place for Barack Obama's presidential eligibility to be evaluated. The acting judge ruled in a hearing regarding the evidence to be allowed in the scheduled October court-martial of Lakin he will be denied access to any of Obama's records as well as any testimony from those who may have access to the records.

September 11, 2001: Nine Years On
By Frank Salvato
The subject of the attacks of September 11, 2001, seems to validate the notion that the American public has an attention span issue. How else can we explain the “tolerance” argument being foisted upon the citizenry by proponents of the Islamic Center and mosque slated for construction just 500 feet from the epicenter of Ground Zero? How else can we explain the abundance of Wahabbist literature in Saudi funded mosques all over the United States? And how else can we explain the fact that a grotesquely overwhelming number of violent acts are committed, daily, in the name of Islam?

A Reasoned Perspective On The Mosque
By Christopher G. Adamo
Had the September 11 terrorist attacks on America occurred during a saner time, the receptiveness of this country towards any tenets of Islam would have been seriously undercut both in the immediate aftermath of the catastrophe, and for at least as long as those who witnessed the event were alive to recall it. Yet, in the face of “political correctness,” rationality has largely been eradicated from the national conversation.

Time To Wake Up And Smell The Baklava
By Tom Garrity

Ever wonder why it’s called “The Nation of Islam”? It’s because the beliefs professed are that of a sovereign entity. That reads, it is a country unto itself with a power structure that can direct operations of the nation and send others to do their bidding. It is a theocracy. A religious government. It is directed toward those that do not wish to rationally think for themselves but rather follow the direction of their leaders.

Obama Unplugged — and Unintelligible
By Jennifer Rubin
Before Obama’s presser on Friday, Michael Gerson wandered down the memory lane, recalling the 2008 campaign, when Obama’s “message had something to do with unity, healing and national purpose.” No more, he explained: “Obama’s initiatives … are not only unpopular; they have made it impossible for him to maintain the pretense of being a unifying, healing, once-in-a-generation leader. It is the agenda that undermined the idiom.

A Republican To-Do List
by Paul R. Hollrah
When the new Congress is seated in January 2011, Republican leaders will have a lot on their plates. Overall, their goal must be to restore public confidence in the U.S. economy… not only among consumers, but more importantly among businesses, large and small. Consumers have lost confidence that they will be able to hang onto their jobs, so they don’t spend their money; they stash it away for a rainy day.

Obama’s Latest Outrage Against Arizona And America
By: Christopher G. Adamo
As freedom and individuality are crushed throughout the Middle East under the weight of Sharia law, Barack Obama opts to bow and grovel at the feet of Islamic dictators with whom he seeks to “build bridges.” Comity with such people is paramount. In contrast, human rights abuses among the common people of those regions are inconsequential.

The Brushfires of Freedom
By Mark Alexander
A few decades ago, my great aunt, a lady whom I admired, passed away. I was listed as a relative, though not a material beneficiary, of her small estate. An official notice went out to all of our living relatives announcing the date of her estate settlement, but it listed my name as the deceased instead of her name. The report of my death was an exaggeration. Likewise, a few decades ago, the economy was given last rites and the Republican Party with it, and Democrats  elected Jimmy Carter to solve the nation's problems at home and abroad. However, reports of the Republican demise were also greatly exaggerated.

What Drove James Lee?
By Alan Burkhart
On Wednesday, September 1 James Jay Lee stormed into the Discovery Channel’s office and took several hostages. He had a long list of grievances, most related to the human population and the environment. His rhetoric made him sound more like a real-life Kodos the Executioner than an environmental activist. To put it mildly, Lee was a man with an ax to grind.

Looks like a prince, sounds like a frog
By Wesley Pruden

You can't blame a frog for posing as a prince. It's not the frog's fault if there's a line of princesses waiting to bestow the magic kiss. The prince has turned out to be the usual frog, a politician trying to spin his shortcomings as successes. A lot of people idolize a prince, but President Obama is learning that a frog is just something to step on.

Ground Zero Mosque Is Not About Religious Freedom
By Robert Meyer
The Ground Zero mosque controversy has been erroneously portrayed by certain news pundits as being an issue about religious freedom. Of course this is another red herring designed to demonize those protesting against locating the mosque at ground zero--as if those opposing it want to deny a segment of Americans equal access to the First Amendment. Is it not ironic that only a few years ago we were told that dissent was the highest form of patriotism.

Beware of the Obama tax increases
By Eric Cantor

Listening to the Democrats this summer, you're unlikely to hear about an impending tax increase. In an effort to sanitize their historically irresponsible decision to raise tax rates in the midst of a struggling economy, President Obama and the congressional majority say they are merely "allowing the Bush tax cuts" to expire. Skillful messaging perhaps, but cold comfort to the millions of Americans and small businesses who aren't concerned with what their effective tax rate was in 2001.

America Is Losing the Resource Wars
By Daniel McGroarty
Clarke's Third Law, coined by the late Sci-Fi master himself, Arthur C., captures perfectly the world we live in today - where the way we phone a friend, fire off a memo or a missile all owe to technologies whose inner-workings most of us understand no better than the ape-men in the opening scene of Clarke's classic, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And for the vast majority of us who wouldn't know a line of software code from an Egyptian hieroglyph, we're quite comfortable living lives touched by magic. But our virtual world has real roots in a range of arcane minerals, metals and elements found on the Periodic Chart, and distributed unevenly under the Earth's crust.

Another Obama White House Lie About Islam
By Warner Todd Huston
Remember that iftar dinner the president sponsored? The dinner that got him in trouble because he came out in strong support of the mega-mosque at Ground Zero, support from which he backed away the very next day? Well, it turns out he delivered another blatant lie at that dinner, one that slipped under the radar because his support of the Ground Zero Mosque was so controversial. In his remarks at the iftar observance, Obama claimed that the “first” iftar dinner in the White House was hosted by Thomas Jefferson.

My name is Barack Gump
By Christopher Grey
Hello America, My Name is Barack Gump.
Some people think I was born in Hawaii. Others think I was born in Indonesia. I really don't know, but I'm glad that I stayed in America. Indonesia is a scary place, and I never could have been president over there. I never really knew my father. My mother said he was a great man. My grandparents didn't think so highly of him. I really don't know, but I wrote a book about him.

Dollars for Muslims
by Connie Hair
The Obama Administration reportedly held a special workshop this week to help leaders of controversial Muslim groups acquire “direct access” to taxpayer funding for their activities. The event’s main organizer, the Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations (CCMO) has long-established ties to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, which fostered many Islamist terror groups.

President's socialist takeover must be stopped
Jeffrey T. Kuhner - The Washington Times
President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached. He is slowly - piece by painful piece - erecting a socialist dictatorship. We are not there - yet. But he is putting America on that dangerous path.
