Ron Paul’s Parochialism

Ron Paul's Parochialism

The Daily Caller has a writeup and video/audio segment of Mark Steyn (who sometimes subs for Rush Limbaugh on his radio show) on Hugh Hewitt’s show talking about Ron Paul’s crazy statements and the new light they’re receiving. I can’t decide which would be worse: our current president’s Apology Tour Foreign Policy, or Ron Paul’s Head-In-The-Sand Defense Posture.

Ron Paul is dangerous

Ron Paul is dangerous

Ron Paul did himself no favors during the recent Iowa debate. Afterward, former Iowa House Speaker Christopher C. Rants blogged, “Ron Paul finally lit a match after dousing himself with gasoline.” America witnessed Ron Paul doing a squirrelly libertarian tango Thursday night. Cute but unstable.

Macy’s Shows Religious Freedom and Homosexual Agenda Cannot Coexist

Macy’s Shows Religious Freedom and Homosexual Agenda Cannot Coexist

We have seen the full-frontal assault against marriage by radical homosexual judges and homo-sympathizing legislators. Another current example of radical homosexuals pushing the envelope to force society to accept their behavior comes fromSan Antonio where an employee of Macy’s department store has been fired for refusing to allow a man to use the women’s dressing rooms. No, I’m not joking.

Chinese Expansion Stepping on US Toes in the Pacific

Chinese Expansion Stepping on US Toes in the Pacific

Control of Micronesia was key to swift Japanese victories on Guam, the Philippines, Wake Island, Kiribati, New Guinea, and Nauru. During the war, much of the Japanese fleet was based in Truk Lagoon. Four years and one hundred thousand American lives later, the U.S. declared no nation would ever again enjoy such a strategic foothold in the Pacific. Yet we are watching the expansionist Chinese making incursions in that area, and the United States is doing little to maintain its foothold in this strategic location.

Slandered Hero Marine Files Defamation Lawsuit

Slandered Hero Marine Files Defamation Lawsuit

Back in September, we saw a hero Marine receive the Medal of Honor for his amazing, life-saving performance during an ambush in Afghanistan. Marine Sergeant Dakota Meyer is one of the few living recipients of the Medal of Honor for the wars inIraq and Afghanistan. Now he’s fighting defamation after exposing the sale of high-tech military hardware to a foreign country whose dedication to U.S. interests is questionable.

Money for Anything But Defense

Money for Anything But Defense

Massive defense cuts on the docket, thanks to the complete incompetence and malfeasance of the “supercommittee.” Meanwhile, communist China continues to be a growing threat to us and our allies, North Korea continues to pursue nukes, Iran continues to pursue nukes while they remain the #1 supporter of terrorism in the world, and terrorist groups worldwide still have us in their crosshairs.

Getting Stoned for America

Getting Stoned for America

What’s wrong with this picture? Maybe some folks think it’s normal to be stoned, and think recreational drugs should be legal, but mature human beings tend to have a problem with something like this, especially when lives are on the line. Union workers at Tower Defense in Detroit drinking booze and smoking pot over lunch.

Video: GOP National Security Debate

Video: GOP National Security Debate

I was unable to get the video of the CNN national security debate last night edited and uploaded, but thanks to the good folks at the Media Research Center, we have it here. As the “social issues” debate over the weekend was perhaps the most important debate of this election season, so national defense is right up there. If we’re taken over or destroyed by an enemy, our freedom, constitution and everything else we hold dear are worthless.

Rep and Retired LTC Allen West on Waterboarding

Rep and Retired LTC Allen West on Waterboarding

Retired Lt. Col. Allen West, now U.S. Representatiave from Florida Allen West, provides some important and much-needed perspective on the perennial liberal angst over waterboarding. He points out that President Obama is the beneficiary of information obtained through waterboarding, that terrorists have chosen to operate outside the normal protections of the Geneva Conventions, many of our own servicemen are waterboarded…and waterboarding just isn’t torture.

An RNC Veteran’s Day Message

An RNC Veteran's Day Message

This is a Veteran’s Day message from the Republican National Committee, and from veterans to veterans. Despite the RINOs and liberals in our midst, the Republican Party remains the only party that is still dedicated the defense and honor of America (sadly, though not all in its ranks have, the leadership of America’s other major party sold out over 40 years ago to defeatism and self-loathing).

Remembering all that served

Remembering all that served

During the Vietnam era we were told that for every man in combat there were seven soldiers needed in non-combat roles to provide necessary support. Each of those soldiers, whether in supply, payroll, mess service, intelligence, transportation, entertainment, communications, security, training, etc., all performed essential parts in making the very complex military system work, which contributed to our country’s interests and security. Their contributions are no less honorable than that of the grunt rifleman who took watch behind the concertina wire of the Phu Bai airstrip night after lonely night.

Vietnam War in High Def

Vietnam War in High Def

The Vietnam War left an indelible imprint on America, for a number of reasons. The History Channel is doing a multi-part series on footage from the Vietnam War, telling the story in the voices of the veterans who were there and displaying digitized footage from the war. Some of that footage was shot by the soldiers themselves and has not been seen publicly before.

Occupy Chicago Crowd Seeks Destruction of Israel

Occupy Chicago Crowd Seeks Destruction of Israel

I love it when Marxists stop pretending and show us how they really feel. Like this “Occupy Chicago” occupationist gathering where flyers were distributed calling for the destruction of our ally Israel, as well as our defeat by the terrorists and other Islamic militants in Afghanistan and Iraq.

What the Occupationists Want

What the Occupationists Want

As usual, non “mainstream” media groups like the Media Research Center are out there getting answers for the American people about what the “occupationist” protesters believe and want. The “mainstream” media must be too busy praising and applauding their comrades on the street to get us any real information. Based on the interviews MRC conducted of the occupationists in Washington D.C., this is what these Marxists believe in.

Occupationists: America Founded on Slavery and Genocide

Occupationists: America Founded on Slavery and Genocide

I love it when these Marxists reveal themselves for who they are: anti-American haters of all that is good. Like this clip where this ungrateful brat in Oakland claims America “was founded on slavery and genocide.” They spend so much time lying and pretending they really don’t want an end to the American way of life, it’s actually refreshing to see their dark, evil goals in the full light of day.

Occupy Wall Street: Spitting in the Wind

Occupy Wall Street: Spitting in the Wind

From CBS News, an update on how it’s going for the hippies, hairheads, Marxists and malcontents who are trying to “Occupy Wall Street.” Note that these anti-capitalist protesters are wearing clothes manufactured by some corporation, sleeping in sleeping bags manufactured by some corporation, in a park constructed by construction corporations, and going to McDonald’s and Starbucks corporations to use the bathroom and get wireless service. Life in opposition to evil corporations is great, isn’t it?

There should be a whole lot more reunions

There should be a whole lot more reunions

Some folks really pony up to reunions, all kinds, family, class or high school, college, and military units, just to name a few. Others dislike them so much they get sick rather than go to one. I, for one, like them, the whole bunch. We just returned from one, kinda like a military unit. But we weren’t a unit, just super good friends who date back more than 50 year./p>

Democrats Defend the Tea Party

Democrats Defend the Tea Party

You’ve probably heard it said on the Left that “all the Republican candidates worship at the altar of the Tea Party,” or something like that. But did you know that the Tea Party is a collection of citizens from all backgrounds that don’t like elected or appointed government officials who over tax, over spend, and over regulate to the point of strangulating our economy, our freedoms, and our lives. Did you know that there are Tea Party Democrats–and did you know they are letting the chair of the DNC know they aren’t happy with the Tea Party-bashing?

Hijacking the Memory of 9-11

Hijacking the Memory of 9-11

It is hard to believe it has already been ten years since two jetliners were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center. As it became painfully clear that we had been attacked by our Islamist mortal enemies, the American people came together in a rare unity unseen in many, many decades. Do you remember the signs and the bumper stickers that appeared all over the country? We said we’d never forget…but have we?

Military Follows Orders Applauds President Obama

Military Follows Orders Applauds President Obama

It’s nice to know that the U.S. military is still following orders. At an appearance by President Barack Obama at the Washington Navy Yard on Aug. 5, the gathered military personnel did not applaud or cheer the entrance of the Commander in Chief until ordered to do so by a commanding officer. It is unclear whether the gathered personnel were waiting for a teleprompter to tell them to applaud and cheer.
