The Gallows

The more that I hear from current liberal/Democrat elected and party officials and the “progressive” intelligentsia, the more the words start to modulate into the low, mournful tones of a funeral dirge. Marked by the cadence and the sounds of the slow, muffled drum beat of a dead march, I can hear the trudging footfalls…

Rule 5 – Golf Channel Edition

Yes, they do have the Golf Channel in Scotland. What would you expect in the birthplace of the sport? For the record, St. Andrews is only about an hour away from Edinburgh but that is not the birthplace of golf. The actual reputed birthplace is Leith, now a part of the greater Edinburgh area and…

“Over Suggesting”

Over at The Other McCain, Stacy McCain quotes a friend of his, Chris Moody and Moody’s interview with Herman Cain: After a few caffeine-heavy refills at our corner table, I asked him about President Obama’s new effort to raise taxes on the wealthy, and Cain just about blew a blood vessel–especially when I mentioned the…

The Real Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

On the heels of the recent repeal of DADT (don’t ask, don’t tell) policy in the US military and in light of the recent report of the vicious tirade that Bristol Palin was subjected to and the disgusting attacks on Rick Santorum, I’ve been thinking about the real social policy of DADT . As far…

Felonius Munk speaks the truth…

Warning – strong and obscene language – and a dose of the truth. Thanks to a long time TRNL supporter Ross Malloy for pointing to this. I’ve been meaning to post for a while but work got in the way… A while back, Glenn Beck interviewed Munk, aka Dennis Banks (courtesy of Sean Archer at…

Rule 5 – Pussycat Doll Made Good Edition

Nicole Scherzinger. Talented. Fantastic dancer. Killer body. Former Pussycat Doll. Enough said. Nicole’s biography via Wikipedia: Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente Scherzinger (born June 29, 1978) is an American entertainer who is best known as the lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls. Previously, Scherzinger was a backing vocalist for the late-1990s rock group Days of the…

The Social Compact

****Updated and promoted – Stacy McCain has a related post.**** A “news” item today from CNN (via Drudge) notes a poll that seems to indicate that Obama is losing his base – that 13% off those polled disapprove of Obama’s performance because he “is not liberal enough”. That seems to be true; the number is…

Liberalism is a cruel recipe for disaster…

This clip of Elizabeth Warren, former Obama adviser and former putative head of the new consumer “protection” agency until she faced stiff congressional opposition and decided to run against Scott Brown for the “Teddy Kennedy Memorial Senate Seat”, is making the rounds… Warren drops the veil to expose the true essence of “progressive” politicians –…

Leave Baracky Alone!

I wrote this last year before the November elections. Obama has added to his list of greatest hits but the gist of the piece still has relevance. In a funny turn of events, over at The Other McCain,  Smitty has a post today of the same title… Leave Barack alone!!! Waaah! Waaah! Waaah! Back in…

Stupid “Progressive” Tricks

Henry Blodget writes at the Business Insider that “Sorry, But The Republican Arguments Against A “Millionaire’s Tax” Are Just Preposterous”. He ticks off traditional liberal/”progressive” arguments that the “rich” should just shut up and pay. Just sit back and relax and let the government determine what to spend – they will send you a bill…

The Real Hockey Stick Graph

Unlike the phoney “hockey stick” graph promulgated by Michael E. Mann, Raymond S. Bradley and Malcolm K. Hughes in 1998 and used by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to support the anthropogenic global “climate change” religion, this graph is constructed of verifiable data and doesn’t require the use of satellites. Via Bloomberg News:…

No Hope and Time for a Change

Or so says the Chicago Tribune – read it all here. When Ronald Reagan ran for re-election in 1984, his slogan was “Morning in America.” For Barack Obama, it’s more like midnight in a coal mine. [What are they trying to say here -is the Chicago Tribune racist?  That’s sarcasm, comrade Obamaites. Words, just words.…

UK Lib Dems ask the “rich” to pay “thier fair share”

Looks like the UK “progressives” are picking up on Obama’s talking points. At least liberals and “progressives” are the same the world over. From the BBC: More than 2,000 tax inspectors will be recruited to crack down on tax evasion among the wealthiest people in the UK, a Liberal Democrat minister has said. Danny Alexander,…
