Its getting to be like when Lyndon Johnson lost Uncle Walter Cronkite during the Vietnam war. The President is beginning to lose his biggest defenders. This week it is New York Times editorial writer Maureen Dowd who wrote in her column that the best thing that happened in Washington last week was a Tornado watch. As Obama weathers additional storms, he continues to deflect by blaming whatever he can to take the responsibility away from the Oval Office. Obviously, he does not have a "Buck Stops Here" sign on he desk. It can be said that if Obama has Lost Dowd, He has lost his base. And if he has lost his base, he will surely lose the election. ON Friday night, the nation’s capital was under a tornado watch. And that was the best thing that happened to the White House all [...]
CBS News Poll analysis by the CBS News Polling Unit: Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus and Anthony Salvanto. (CBS News) Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has a slight edge over President Obama in the race for the White House in the latest CBS News/New York Times poll. According to the survey, conducted May 11-13, 46 percent of registered voters say they would vote for Romney, while 43 percent say they would opt for Mr. Obama. Romney's slight advantage remains within the poll's margin of error, which is plus or minus four percentage points. Last month, a CBS News/New York Times poll showed Mr. Obama and Romney locked in a dead heat, with both earning 46 percent support among registered voters. Polls conducted in February and March showed Mr. Obama [...]
By: Edmund Jenks - West Coast Editor Trayvon Martin, 17, was shot last month in the town of Sanford, Florida by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, who has claimed self defense and has not been charged. The Trayvon Martin death at the apparent hands of a neighborhood watch individual named George Zimmerman has become a most troubling episode in American media culture. It reveals what happens when facts are over-run, unimportant, and only selected deaths of young black men are important when it seems to rise to the level of political exploitation by the forces that support a liberal, divide and control mentality. Under this view, in order to keep government front and center in the minds of all Americans, American unity must be broken down and marginalized so that we may [...]
Video of Rick Santorum’s Wisconsin Meltdown An angry Rick Santorum lashed out at New York Times reporter Jeff Zeleny after a campaign rally in Wisconsin Sunday evening, calling the paper’s story on him “bullshit.” The former Pennsylvania senator’s temper was fueled when Zelany asked him for clarification about a line attacking Mitt Romney in his speech. “You said Mitt Romney was the worst Republican in the country, is that true?” Zelany said. via Santorum calls reporter’s question ‘bulls–t’ | The Raw Story.
(LOS ANGELES TIMES) — The Obama campaign is returning more than $200,000 in campaign donations from relatives of a fugitive and casino baron believed to be tied to political corruption in Mexico. The decision to return the money came after the contributions were flagged by The New York Times. The newspaper reported late Monday that the money was donated by family members of Juan Jose Rojas “Pepe” Cardona, who is believed to have fled to Mexico after facing drug and fraud charges in the United States. Cardona’s brothers, Carlos Cardona and Alberto Rojas, both of Chicago, began donating money to and soliciting contributions for the Obama campaign last fall. The men continue to have business ties to their brother, who is suspect of funneling political donations in Mexico, the [...]
By: Edmund Jenks - West Coast Editor In an article published in the UK Daily Mail, Democrat Political Party strategists reveal to the New York Times just why this coming election of 2012 will be the most divisive in modern American history. The Obama Administration will not seek to gain votes from all Americans as was the tradition of elections past. The majority of working-class voters, by population demographics, are Caucasian, and polling shows that they have very little hope in their future prospects with a second term of a Barack Obama presidency (unless they belong to a labor Union, where folks do not have any control over dues funded political donations). This election will become the most divisive because it will be the liberal (MSM) media's charter to publish articles [...]
Folks down at Occupy Wall Street are circulating a video that appears on YouTube about a CIA misinformation program called, "Operation Mockingbird". In short, the program was used to influence public opinion by placing stories in foreign media that would find it's way into American media. One source stated, "the reporters are lying about the movement, they are working for the CIA". While there is some historical accuracy to "Operation Mockingbird" it makes little sense in this context. President Obama wants the movement to focus on Wall Street to keep attention off of his Administrations failures. While the CIA operation was used to cast a negative view of Communism during the cold war. One might remember that "Arab Spring" was conceived by the United States State Department. Maybe it [...]

The New York Times reports the GOP presidential debates this year are garnering almost twice as many viewers as any of the early debates, Democratic or Republican, did four years ago. "Cable news executives don't know for sure, but they have theories. Chief among them is that widespread anxiety about the economy and disapproval of the political system is building viewership... Other theories involve livelier contenders, showier production values for the debates and an increase in online chatter about them -- some of the same traits that make reality TV shows successful." via Republican Debates Attracting Big Audiences.
