There’s a surprising lesson to learn from the sinking of the Titanic, a lesson that culture warriors need to adopt. If the forces of the Left – from progressives to the politically correct – are going to be defeated, Liberty’s defenders need to go on offense … and stomp on the accelerator.

Fascist Feminism: The Idea That Women Are Too Stupid To Think For Themselves

By idaflo | June 30th, 2010 | No Comments » 

For fascist feminists, ultimately, it’s all abortion all the time.

Cassy Fiano with her side armJune 29, 2010 by Cassy Fiano Originally posted at Newsreal: but this from HotAir

About a month ago, Sarah Palin had the gall to describe herself as a feminist. Then, a crop of Republican women rose to prominence — most notably, Nikki Haley, Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina, and Sharron Angle — by winning primaries across the country. Read More »

Virginia ThomasHe’s ‘moving country away from founding principles’

Posted: June 30, 2010  By Chelsea Schilling © 2010 WorldNetDaily

When at least a million taxpayers stormed Washington, D.C., taking their fight against growth of big government to the front door of the U.S. Capitol last year, the explosion of patriotism inspired the wife of one of the most powerful men in the world to reignite the nation’s passion for the U.S. Constitution.

Robin of Berkeley –  Love her stuff.

cat painted like Obama surreal paintingBy Robin of Berkeley at American Thinker

I recently embarked on a grand experiment. Unfortunately, it was a miserable failure.It all started a few weeks ago, when I decided to include an e-mail address in my articles rather than read the comments thread. I thought it would be cool to commune with readers while avoiding the pesky trolls.  I received over four hundred emails the first time around. But there were unusual circumstances behind the deluge….(article continues here)

Ayaan Hirsi Ali on the Middle East

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a heroine.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali.By Mladen Andrijasevic at The American Thinker

It is truly a pleasure  to see clarity spoken by a  known public figure about an issue where there has been none.  In a few sentences Ayaan Hirsi Ali demonstrated that she knows more  about the Middle East than all the pundits put together.

She said:

What was a territorial conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis was transformed into an Arab Jewish, therefore ethnic conflict  and then from there expanded into a religious conflict . Now, that conflict,  that process, is no longer about the people on the ground, on that strip of desert. That territorial conflict has between 1948  and now  gone from territorial  and ethnic conflict  to a major religious and civilizational- symbolic conflict,….(continue reading here)

Why Obamanomics Has Failed

Uncle Sam discouragedUncertainty about future taxes and regulations is enemy No. 1 of economic growth.

By ALLAN H. MELTZER

The administration’s stimulus program has failed. Growth is slow and unemployment remains high. The president, his friends and advisers talk endlessly about the circumstances they inherited as a way of avoiding responsibility for the 18 months for which they are responsible.

But they want new stimulus measures—which is convincing evidence that they too recognize that the earlier measures failed. And so the U.S. was odd-man out at the G-20 meeting over the weekend, continuing to call for more government spending in the face of European resistance….(Rest of article linked HERE)

Dave Weigel

By M.Z. Hemingway at GetReligion.org

On Friday, Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel — who covered conservative groups — resigned his position after incendiary partisan emails he had sent were published by the Daily Caller. The day before, some of his intemperate emails were published by Fishbowl DC. He had apologized already for those and chalked them up to a bad day. Read More »

Ignorant reporter ‘smears’ Tea Partiers and winds up looking like an ignorant reporter

Bill DuprayPosted by Bill Dupray at LIBERTYPUNDITS.net

Before I give you the pull quote, let me ask you, dear conservative reader: Do you believe there is something the federal government can do to facilitate job growth in a way that conservatives would approve? Not to give it away too quickly, but how about cutting taxes and regulations and getting out of the way of the job-producing engine called American business?

Apparently if you are a Bloomberg reporter named Heidi Przybyla, that thought has never entered your mind….(continue reading here)

Sex, Lies, and Al Gore

American Thinker painting logoBy Robin of Berkeley at American Thinker

Did Al Gore sexually attack a licensed massage therapist in Portland in 2006? I don’t know. But I believe this story has legs.
I’m a licensed therapist myself, though of the psychological kind. In my twenty-plus years in practice, I have never seen a woman who I believed was lying about sexual abuse.

Now, this isn’t saying that females don’t lie…(continue reading here)

The New Russian Intelligence Agency Plays Some Old Tricks Once Again: Old Goals Live On

By idaflo | June 28th, 2010 | No Comments » 

Ron RadoshJune 28, 2010 – by Ron Radosh at PajamasMedia.com

It seems that some things never change. A few moments ago, this breaking story came in from the website of the New York Times. It seems, as this early report informs us, that ten Americans have been arrested for spying on behalf of Putin’s new Russia. The story has eerie reminiscences of the arrest, trial, and eventual execution of  Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, over half a century ago on June 19th, 1953 — only a week apart from the current date of these newly arrested accused spies.
