It’s time to replace Janet Napolitano with Andrew Napolitano

Friday, April 24th, 2009

Over at the Examiner, I’ve written an article which calls for DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to be fired and replaced by Fox News analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano.  Here’s why Janet should pack her bags: Considering the timing of the actual release of the report, it seems that law enforcement was being provided a message from […]

It’s time for libertarians to start taking Federal Reserve issues seriously

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

For years, a lot of libertarians and paleoconservatives have focused a lot of attention on the Federal Reserve.  Some have gone overboard, blaming the Fed on virtually every lost freedom in America.  Others have focused too hard at the wrong time; I remember one person speaking at a gun show looking pretty foolish because he […]

Alan Keyes teams up with Prison Planet to start new conspiracy theory

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

In a match made in heaven, Prison Planet has joined with former Ambassador and presidential candidate Alan Keyes to suggest that President Barrack Obama plans to “stage terror attacks, declare martial law and cancel the 2012 elections.” While I’m certainly no Obama fan, that’s a very serious allegation to be tossing about in such a […]

A sincere warning to big-government Republicans politicians

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Last night, I published an article at The Next Right aimed at Republicans currently holding public office. Afterwards, I recalled that it wasn’t all that long ago that many elected Republicans thought the Internets are a long series of tubes. Lately, it seems that some Republican office holders have learned to tweet, but I’m not […]

Worth requoting

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Are Republicans going Galt? Maybe you see a pattern there and maybe you don’t. But of the roughly four different pathways the Republicans could take in the post-Obama universe — toward Ron Paulesque libertarianism, toward Sarah Palinesque cultural populism, toward Mike Huckabeesque big-government conservatism, or toward Olympia Snowesque moderation/ good-governmentism — the libertarian side would […]

Today’s Winners and Losers

Monday, April 20th, 2009

With the exception of “pure” libertarians, everyone gets it right sometimes and everyone gets it wrong sometimes. Lately, I’ve been praising Robert Stacy McCain while being a mildly critical of Andrew Sullivan regarding Tea Parties.  Today, Sullivan makes up for it by bringing our attention to a post made by McCain regarding waterboarding.  McCain writes: […]

You might be a right-wing extremist if…

Friday, April 17th, 2009

…via the Lady Godiva of the Tax Day Tea Party and the big pimp daddy of blogwhoredom, I’ve posted video of the speech Robert Stacy McCain delivered at the Birmingham/Shelby Country Tea Party in Alabama. Additionally, I should take this time to do a little blogwhoring of my own.  As I’ve noticed that site traffic […]

Two Quotes of the Day

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

Sometime one has to get up early to get the quote-of-the-day post on this site.  Not being a morning person, I simply waited until after midnight.  Blogging is more fun while sucking down a beer than drinking the first cup of morning coffee, anyway.  Since I rarely provide the QOTD here, I thought it was […]

Trying to teach newbie fiscally conservative Republicans a few speaking points

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

The Hill reports: Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) blasted “tea party” protests yesterday, labeling the activities “despicable” and shameful.” “The ‘tea parties’ being held today by groups of right-wing activists, and fueled by FOX News Channel, are an effort to mislead the public about the Obama economic plan that cuts taxes for 95 percent of Americans […]

Rush Limbaugh and Fox News too damned cheap to pay for their own bandwidth

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

Being as they obviously can’t afford to serve their own Internet files, both Rush Limbaugh and Fox News have been hotlinking the now-infamous Department of Homeland Security report this site recently released. Since the report was published, we’ve experienced a tremendous burst of traffic, and been working overtime (special kudos to Brad) merely to keep […]

MD and AL: Two Tea Party items of interest

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

Maryland It’s being reported that the Maryland National Guard issued an alert to be on the lookout for numerous entities which “have formed recently to express displeasure/anger over recent federal/state government actions: more taxes, increased spending, higher deficits, a surge of borrowing to pay for it all, bailout of the financial institutions.” “This movement can […]

Alabama Tea Party Report

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

Robert Stacy McCain and I just got back from our second Tea Party of the day. First, we went to Tuscaloosa for the rally being held at the University of Alabama. McCain was the first speaker, and considering that he’s a DC-based Alabama football fan, he probably couldn’t have messed up his speech, even if […]

Funniest Tea Party poster I’ve seen so far…

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

There is a long trail of trackbacks to credit on this one.  Starting with Mark Thompson, we move to Andrew Sullivan and then Wonkette to reach our final destination at Creative Loafing. Thomas Wheatley explains: Turns out Hannity and some of the various dignitaries who’ve signed on for the event might not get the warmest […]

The White House responds to DHS report

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

Every since we provided a .pdf document of a Department of Homeland Security report (subsequently verified by Michelle Malkin) which paints pretty much anyone opposed to big government as a potential terrorist threat, our server has been hiccupping a bit.  Not as bad as the the Washington Times site, though.  After twenty or so tries, […]

DHS Report: “…has likely spurred African Americans—as well as law-abiding Americans…”

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

My friend Dave Weigel seems to be less upset with about the DHS reported entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Environment Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” than pretty much everyone else in the blogosphere.  He notes: Seriously, though, I struggle to find anything wrong in a close — not a willfully obtuse — […]

Addressing some Tea Party concerns

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Believe me, I certainly understand the reluctance of libertarians and some fiscal conservatives to become involved in Tea Parties.  Legitimate concerns abound regarding big-government Republicans astroturfing the movement and about other issues and players being added to the agenda.   I’ve written a lot about these issues, and likely will in the future.  I’d like to […]

If you are reading this, you may well be a terrorist

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Last night, I uploaded a document I had received by e-mail and wrote the following: According to this new Homeland Security report, all it takes to fit the terrorist profile is to have general anti-government feelings or prefer local/state government to federal control over everything. The federal Homeland Security Department document entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current […]

Astroturfing Republican of the Day Award

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

Big-government Republican hypocricy knows no limits, it seems.  Here’s the latest tweet from Mike Huckabee: Pls support HPAC today, my 3 reasons for $3: rising taxes, deficits, massive exp. of govt http://tinyurl.com/cwpy6t Plse RT #tcot Let’s see if I understand this correctly: Tax Hike Mike wants us to give money to the Huck PAC because […]

Homeland Security document targets most conservatives and libertarians in the country

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

Remember that now-retracted Missouri Information Analysis Center report which stated that small-government types (specifically Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin supporters) were potential terrorist threats? According to this new Homeland Security report, all it takes to fit the terrorist profile is to have general anti-government feelings or prefer local/state government to federal control over […]
