If Obama wins, court will tilt left for a generation

We need to spread the word about getting Obama out of office. People are not terribly happy with Romney, neither am I. But I think the best advice we can start to push now is control of the Supreme Court.

Antonin Scalia is 76, Anthony Kennedy is 76, Clarence Thomas is 64, Ruth Ginsburg is 79, Stephen Breyer is 74, and Samuel Alito is 62. Continue reading

Why elections matter: A businessman’s perspective

(‘76 Contributor) Now that the DNC pomp and circumstance down in Charlotte is over, it’s time to look below the veneer of the crafty speech-writing and words so eloquently spoken by President Obama and former President Bill Clinton. Linked below is an article about President Obama from Newsweek, which is the antithesis of the bastion of conservatism. The true meaning of “transforming America” and his heavy socialist leanings are starting to trickle through the “protective wall” built around him by our liberal media. Continue reading

How Obama crushed thousands of auto dealerships

(‘76 Contributor) In 2009, the Auto Task Force under the US Treasury Department and its head, Steve Rattner, Obama’s Car Czar, entered into negotiations with Chrysler and GM (auto manufacturers) to “save” the auto industry. Herein, the auto task force, without inside knowledge of the industry, pressured the manufacturers to reduce the number of dealerships and fast tracked the government-managed bankruptcy to do just that.

(‘76 Contributor) Well, well. Steve Rattner is now a spokesperson for the Obama re-election campaign and has specifically been speaking about financial matters. Rattner has appeared on both CNN and Fox. In a July 22 interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Rattner questioned Mitt Romney’s tax returns.

But as Rattner proclaims his expertise as “an equity guy” to Zakaria and condemns Romney for allegedly sleazy financial dealings, Continue reading

Iran’s dominance in Iraq steadily increases

(Sull, Iraq) So America’s liberal newspaper of record is shocked, shocked! that Prime Minister al-Maliki and the Iraqi government are puppets of the Iranian administration.

In what might be more a function of the curtailing of foreign reporters and the use of stringers to report news, one of the most open secrets in Iraq, even as far north as here in Kurdistan, was seen as news by the New York Times the other day. Continue reading

‘Forward’ into what, Mr. President? The abyss?

Whenever I describe our current president as a Socialist, I am most often greeted with shock. Take for example Obama’s new campaign slogan: “Forward!” This term has always been associated with the European socialist movement.

The official newspaper of the Socialist Party of Germany (SPD) since 1891 has been “Vorw ä rts”, which means Forward in German. Continue reading
