The Astroturf Study

The Left is jumping with both feet on this study:

A new academic study confirms that front groups with longstanding ties to the tobacco industry and the billionaire Koch brothers planned the formation of the Tea Party movement more than a decade before it exploded onto the U.S. political scene.

Far from a genuine grassroots uprising, this astroturf effort was curated by wealthy industrialists years in advance. Many of the anti-science operatives who defended

The DHS Shoe On the Other Foot

Wikileaks latest has indicated that DHS was keeping tabs on the Occupy Movement as a potential danger. Naturally, of course, the Left has freaked about “oppression”, a freak-out which includes this laughable quote:

On Current TV last night, host Cenk Uygur blasted the agency for focusing exclusively on Occupy Wall Street. “The Tea Party… that happens to be pro-corporate America is not anywhere to be found here [but] when Occupy Wall Street is not pro-corporate

On The Night Liberty Died, I Held Her Hand…..

This is tangentially about the SCOTUS hearing on ObamaCare that’s coming up in the first quarter of next year, but it’s not the crux of the subject I wish to comment on.

On March 20 – 22 of last year, I was in Washington D.C. for the vote to pass the health care bill. I had heard a few people suggest a gathering of some sort. Bachmann and some Tea Party notables mostly. For me … Read more

Occupy Continues To Lose Sympathy

You know, I heard a lot of criticism of the Tea Party back in the day. But I don’t recall them do anything like this:

Police have arrested an Occupy Fort Collins protester in connection with a $10 million arson fire that damaged dozens of condominiums and businesses in Fort Collins.

Benjamin David Gilmore, 29, was arrested on Thursday night on suspicion of arson, burglary and criminal mischief.

On Oct. 24, a fire started

A word that needs to be added to the dictionary: Ineptocracy

Wish I can claim I articulated it this nicely:

*_Ineptocracy_****(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least
capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the
members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded
with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number
of producers*

I think the 99 are definitely part & parcel of this ineptocracy: the group … Read more

What Taxes Go For

All right, his has got to stop, liberals. You just sound so stupid every time you say it.

Here is the latest “amusement” from the Left about those dumb “teabaggers”, via Unreal Americans. It juxtaposes anti-tax signs with things supposedly funded by taxes that the protesters are enjoying.


Heh heh. Those dumb tea baggers! They’re protesting against streets and electricity!

This is the poor man’s version of Elizabeth Warren’s dumb rant. And I’ll just repeat … Read more

Preview of 2012 vote

The donkeys better get panicked. Short of one of the typical tricks where they “discover” a trunk full of votes somewhere to let their guy suddenly pull ahead, it looks like the seat formerly heald by Anthony Weiner, he of the wiener picture, will go to the upstart Turner. This is happening in what is usually considered a true blue district, NY-9 that has been a given for the donkeys. Sucks to be them. … Read more

Tea Party Zombies

OK.

Via Hot Air and others, I find this video game. It’s a zombie-killing game called “Tea Party Zombies must die”. The zombies are made to look like the hicks and idiots the Left imagine them to be with bosses made like Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, etc. Oh, and some of them wear Klan robes. You can see screen-caps here.

I’d get worked up into a “can you imagine if we did … Read more

Book Burners? Nah

I’ve previously made mention of the factually-challenged liberal blogger Amanda Marcotte. She’s the “feminist” blogger who, among other things, claims that polls showing that about half of women are pro-Life are biased because women are too stupid to know what pro-Life means (no, I’m not making that up.)

Last week, she wrote an article about the Tea Party moving to ban books which was forwarded me by about every liberal on the planet, including members … Read more

Michelle Malkin – Plumbing Perry’s Objective Record

Couple of things before I start citing the article to which the title refers:

1) I have no problem with taking a candidate’s religious views and practices into account. In fact, I always do try to discern the veracity of the stated views that their actual practices expose. But I tend to do that privately, as my personal religious views and/or biases will always win out in reaching conclusions about a candidate over what others’ … Read more
