She didn’t go to CPAC, or the Iowa Faith and Freedom event, and isn’t yet listed as a speaker for this years SRLC— BUT she is going where the party needs her most, the eye of the storm right now for Republicans in state budget battles where several Republicans are facing the possibility of recalls.

John Nolte at Big Government: Palin Heads to Wisconsin Tea Party Rally, Left Already ‘Joking’ About Violence

 This battle represents the very heart of what the Tea Party is about, where the national spotlight should be, and yet I don’t see a long line of political types heading to my home state to take advantage of that spotlight.

Palin’s going, though, and so is the Wall Street Journal’s John Fund.

And this is exactly where we should be going, and not just because this is where the heart of the fight for our country currently is, but also to make very clear to pro-union types that we will not be intimidated by their thuggishne

Because Palin just happens to be “dumb” enough to be right about everything,

I have no doubt she knows what’s going on in Wisconsin at the hands of these despicable pro-union thugs

But she’s absolutely right to go there. This is the United States. Mobs don’t rule here, law and order does, and the brave confront the bullies, they don’t run from them.

Read it all.

Budget Deal Reached By Boehner Not As Bad As It Was Cracked Up To Be

John Boehner, on the defensive, made his case on the Laura Ingraham Show, this morning, saying the budget deal was a good first step, and he repeated his assertion that he fought for every spending cut he could get from Reid and Obama:

The AP report yesterday that claimed the deal reached between John Boehner and Barack Obama would only save $352 million off the FY2010 spending plan had some conservative heads spinning, yesterday, including mine.

But apparently, that’s not at all alarming or unusual considering how slow adjustments to the budget take hold.

The WaPo With Bloomberg Business reports:

At issue is a concept in budgeting that is often difficult to grasp. Appropriations bills like the pending measure give agencies the authority to spend taxpayers’ money. But such authority typically takes months or years to actually leave the federal Treasury, so cuts made in the middle of the budget year often have little immediate impact.


The CBO study confirms that the measure trims $38 billion in new spending authority relative to current levels, but many of the cuts come in slow-spending accounts like water-and-sewer grants that don’t have an immediate deficit impact.

Like Ace, I won’t even pretend to know how these things work. I tend to rely on other wonkier types to help me form my opinion on Washington’s budget numbers.  But I was one of the last bloggers to jump on the WTF bandwagon because I just wasn’t predisposed to distrust our guys to that extent.

We knew that the spending cuts were just a drop in the bucket considering how massive the debt is, but $352 million didn’t even seem like a serious attempt to set the ship right.

My instincts were to believe Boehner when he said he fought hard for all the cuts he could get. That’s why I was so nonplussed to hear reports that we were being scammed, (which you can see from my thoughts in the comment section, here). I happen to believe that Boehner’s an honorable man — he’s  one of the good guys.

I’m still bothered by the fact that we didn’t start from a bargaining point of $100 billion like they promised us in 2010, and I wish he hadn’t taken shutting down the government off the table, but now I’m back to my Friday night position — I think he did a decent job, considering who he was negotiating with.

Blaze: Cloward Piven Plan To Destroy America Well Underway

There is no doubt in my mind that this is what Obama is attempting. There is no other way to explain his irresponsible actions since becoming President. His Marxist buddies have been out in the open about what their end game is.

As Pam Key puts it : In Their Own Interchangeable Words: Soros, Piven and SEIU Working to Destroy Americas Financial System to Create Revolution:

New Zeal is ringing alarm bells: The Globalists’ Takeover of America: Part 1 – Collapse the Economy:

Obama, George Soros, the United Nations (UN) and the global elites (Democrats, Union leaders and some Republicans) are accelerating their plan to bring America into their Global Governance scheme which will usher in the New World Order (their term, not mine).

Financially, they need to collapse America’s economy to establish a new global structure. Within that structure will be an independent funding source for the UN as well as a system to transfer America’s wealth into the hands of the elites and the governments of other countries.

Sending a massive amount of money overseas will increase America’s debt, further weaken the dollar, cause inflation and stifle any hope of a recovery; the perfect recipe to collapse our economy so that George Soros and the elites can usher in their new global structure, eliminate the dollar as the global currency and transition to a new global currency.

To those who say an American President would never do something like this to our country, read on… the process of taking America’s wealth and “spreading it around” globally is already well underway. Here are some financial facts relating to TARP and just a few of Obama’s 2011 overseas budget expenditures.

Rest here.


Paul Ryan On Levin Show: Obama’s “basically a Pyromaniac In A Field Of Strawmen”

Paul Ryan, in is usual erudite and dignified manner tries to make sense out of Obama’s speech, yesterday.

Rather than come right out and call Obama a Marxist, Ryan instead chooses to point out the differences in governing philosophy between himself and Obama:

I believe that the the role of government needs to be to protect our natural rights, promote equal opportunity, and to stick with the characteristics of upward mobility, of opportunity, of prosperity so we can make the most of our lives as we see fit…… (he believes) in  equal outcomes, not equal  opportunity, the government must take more from the private sector, redistribute it, and run large sectors of the economy, like health care under the name of equality, and that is what America is all about – not the stuff we’re saying.

How do we convince this man to run for President?

Video: Neil Cavuto Interviews A Member Of The Progressive Caucus Who Wants To Increase Spending by $1.5 Trillion (UPDATED)

Congresswoman  Eddie Bernice Johnson appeared on The Neil Cavuto Show to tout the Progressive Caucus’  “Peoples’ Budget” to increase spending by $1.5 trillion dollars. Cavuto, (who clearly lacks “vision”) keeps telling her, “but we’re broke.” Luckily for us, she knows where to find the money for more “investments”.

Watching this, you won’t know whether to laugh or cry:

“The Peoples’ Budget”?

They’re not even hiding it, anymore.


No I remember where I’ve heard that name before. She’s the Dallas brainiac who awarded 23 Congressional Black Caucus scholarships worth $31,000 to relatives, and  cronies:

We should totally trust this woman to be responsible with more of “the peoples” money.

Trevor Loudon has more on The Congressional Progressive Caucus, and The Peoples’ Budget”:

The Congressional Progressive Caucus has issued an alternative budget calling for increased public spending, a “green economy”, defense cuts  and significant tax hikes, in order to right the U.S.’s struggling economy.

The Congress’ largest caucus, the 80-member group is largely made up of House Democrats, along with Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Tom Udall, D-N.M.

The Progressive Caucus is effectively the Congressional wing of Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA, and mirrors those organization’s policy positions on every significant issue.

From the Communist Party USA’s Peoples World

In a vigorous response to the House Republicans’ slash-and-burn 2012 budget proposals, the Congressional Progressive Caucus last week released its own proposal, “The People’s Budget,” which it says reflects “the values and priorities of working families in this country.”
