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 UnknownIt'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 SalvatoDid 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.
