WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

Obama/Ayers - Welcome to the Daley Chicago spin cycle...
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics

It's a veritable Chicago cesspool whirlpool.

Where does the mainstream media get its information about the Obama Ayers connection? Why from Chicago. The new Daley Chicago. It's the same as the old Daley Chicago except it now features more 1960s radicals than wiseguys.

So, when, as a good journalist doing your necessary duty, you call your Chicago PR contacts to get that Obama/Ayers scoop, you reach yet other 1960's radicals, involved with the very organizations Ayers was, awash with Chicago machine media spin contracts, paid for by taxpayers, who confirm that there's nothing there.

Yes, really.

Electorate Rage...
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics

Many people, across all of the political spectrum, are discussing the wild meltdown on Wall Street. Many people are having fun pointing fingers. They're talking about who the economic conditions accrue to in terms of political polls. They're blaming Wall Street fat cats and greedy capitalists - corrupt government sponsored enterprises and corrupt Congressman. The media seems happy to fan the flames. Jabbering about hedge fund operators pitted against the poor little publicans who are losing their savings. Blaming the 'shorts'. Calling down insurance companies that can't deliver S&P returns. Calling the bottom. Staying out.

Whatever.

But, it seems to me, that there's one explanation that no one is talking about. Remember so long ago when the government was contemplating the bailout legislation? Remember when they were talking about the kind of opposition they were getting from the public? Remember that they didn't listen?

Is it possible that the meltdown on Wall Street is the result of the American public voting with their pocket book?  Is it possible that the public has become so enraged with the house-of-cards cabal representative of the worst of government and Wall Street elite alliance - that they are saying:

"We don't care about you crying about trillions of dollars in losses. We know it's all just your paper tiger anyway. And you've proven to us what you'll do to protect it. Since you have decided to tax us without representation, we're no longer going to play. We're leaving your petty little sandbox. Have a nice day."

Now, some might argue that such a response might mean that the public is acting against their own economic interest. The public might argue back that they are actually acting in their economic interest, because breaking the faith and trust of the public is a breach for which there is no underlying guarantee - perhaps the public no longer believes that there is any promise or assurance, especially one in writing, that something is of specified quality, content, benefit, etc., or that it will perform satisfactorily for a given length of time.

You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.

Abraham Lincoln, (attributed)
16th president of US (1809 - 1865)

In which they called Todd Palin the First Gentleman...
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics

That Branchflower report has been issued. And the big question everyone is asking is "What does it mean?"

Here you go: It means that, unlike many executives, Sarah Palin has a pair.

Please, tell us about some folks that aren't these...
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics

David Horowitz's Discover the Networks has one of the most comprehensive lists of Barack Obama and his associations.

You can spend a long time clicking the links in Barack's World.

Barack Obama told Bill O'Reilly that he knew "thousands of people". Given that we've used a pretty good portion of them up here - please, Obama campaign and associates, please tell us about some regular people that you know as well as these. Please, we want to know.

Another friend of Obama - this one's a Butcher...
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics

Hannity missed another key friend of Obama's that, should the Fourth Estate be functioning with a modicum of competency, he would have to answer for. Meet the Butcher of Kenya (please watch it all):

AP is interested enough in Sarah Palin to document today that, of no consequence whatsoever, the state of Alaska is reviewing her permissable per diem payments. If they have the resources to assign to that story, why is it that so much time has passed and Barack Obama has not been asked about his intervention, on taxpayer dollars, unassigned by the State Department, in a foreign country, in support of evil?

H/T: Political Pyro.

Update: I heard on Hannity's radio show today that Jerome Corsi (who was just detained by authorities in Kenya) has obtained actual correspondence between Odinga and Obama. Stay tuned.

Health care is a RIGHT!
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics

In the debate this evening, Barack Obama, to stay on talking points, chose not to answer questions... except for one.

BROKAW: Quick discussion. Is health care in America a privilege, a right, or a responsibility?

...

OBAMA: Well, why don't -- why don't -- let's talk about this, Tom, because there was just a lot of stuff out there.

BROKAW: Privilege, right or responsibility. Let's start with that.

OBAMA: Well, I think it should be a right for every American...

(Ed. emphasis mine)

This is why it's important to understand Obama's relationships, and his associations. He just stood up in front of the nation and rewrote the Declaration Of Independence. In fact, he trampled on it with his radical, leftist feet.

He cast health care with the unalienable, the Declaration according to Obama :

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Health Care, Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Americans know that health care is a contract - it's a contract between employer and employee - or consumer and provider.

This debate may not have been that inspiring. Obama offered no soaring rhetoric. McCain delivered no knockout blow.

But Obama made it clear to the nation that - in the midst of these economic conditions - he is willing to insert government intervention into the very clause that was the rationale for revolution to our Founders. He is willing to trample the liberty of business and enslave everyone who works in the health care industry.

Countrymen, make no mistake. The gauntlet has been cast. Will you accept the yoke?

Obama and Friends...
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics

If you missed it this weekend, the Hannity's America news show Obama and Friends: History of Radicalism provides a concise - if not voluminous - history of Obama's radical past (the video comes in six parts that you can watch in succession). Everyone should see this.

The sheer number of relationships with radicals and radical organizations would seem to give anyone pause.

And they keep coming. We learn today that Obama does have some other executive experience after all. He was a director for eight years of the Joyce Foundation.

Now, why is it that he nor his campaign wouldn't offer up a directorate position at a nearly $1 billion foundation in listing his executive experience? Could it be because the Joyce Foundation funds opposition to the second amendment and has directed a campaign to influence the United States Supreme Court in second amendment adjudication?

If there were one or maybe two relationships that demonstrated radical influence, it might be possible to forgive someone for their associations - but when nearly every single political or organized activity that Obama has participated in is surrounded by the radical left, can there be any other conclusion about where his allegiance lies? Can there be any other conclusion about his 'move toward center' than craven dishonesty?

That Saturday Night Live Skit....
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics

SNL featured another telling skit this weekend....

No, not that one. This one:

President Bush must be a rube of course - but Pelosi, Frank, and Soros don't escape either, nor do a, erm, representative sampling of Joe Publics... Note George Soros' title when it flashes up on the screen.

That might be gettin' just a little too close there...

UPDATE: Well that lasted not quite one day... courtesy of George Soros? Not only does he own the Democratic party - NBC is now a Soros property...

UPDATE 2:  Pat Dollard now has the video up on his site. H/T SondraK. It was like we thought - and more - dear Mrs. Malkin has details. This should go viral now...

Welcome to the Palin Doctrine...
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics

Sarah Palin: When we talk about energy, we have to consider the need to do all that we can to allow this nation to become energy independent.

It's a nonsensical position that we are in when we have domestic supplies of energy all over this great land. And East Coast politicians who don't allow energy-producing states like Alaska to produce these, to tap into them, and instead we're relying on foreign countries to produce for us.

We're circulating about $700 billion a year into foreign countries, some who do not like America -- they certainly don't have our best interests at heart -- instead of those dollars circulating here, creating tens of thousands of jobs and allowing domestic supplies of energy to be tapped into and start flowing into these very, very hungry markets.

Energy independence is the key to this nation's future, to our economic future, and to our national security. So when we talk about energy plans, it's not just about who got a tax break and who didn't. And we're not giving oil companies tax breaks, but it's about a heck of a lot more than that.

Energy independence is the key to America's future.

...

I'm not one to attribute every man -- activity of man to the changes in the climate. There is something to be said also for man's activities, but also for the cyclical temperature changes on our planet.

But there are real changes going on in our climate. And I don't want to argue about the causes. What I want to argue about is, how are we going to get there to positively affect the impacts?

We have got to clean up this planet. We have got to encourage other nations also to come along with us with the impacts of climate change, what we can do about that.

As governor, I was the first governor to form a climate change sub-cabinet to start dealing with the impacts. We've got to reduce emissions. John McCain is right there with an "all of the above" approach to deal with climate change impacts.

We've got to become energy independent for that reason. Also as we rely more and more on other countries that don't care as much about the climate as we do, we're allowing them to produce and to emit and even pollute more than America would ever stand for. So even in dealing with climate change, it's all the more reason that we have an "all of the above" approach, tapping into alternative sources of energy and conserving fuel, conserving our petroleum products and our hydrocarbons so that we can clean up this planet and deal with climate change.

John McCain has designated his energy Czar.

She articulates with clarity that economic prosperity and national security are inextricably linked directly with energy independence and she summons a method to achieve it.

And she offers a unique and unifying argument - which we have not heard articulated by any politician on the national stage - that no matter what position you hold about climate change - the "all the above" approach in America is the greenest possible alternative for the entire world.

It's an objective worthy of a unified American vision. And one that holds the promise of freedom to our succeeding generations.

Fellow citizens, will you embrace the call of our country's new statesman?

Will we realize the Palin Doctrine?
