Michigan Republican leaders call for renewable energy

Enlightening.... It seems such an appropriate word to describe an energy summit. Informative, educational, and intriguing would have all been accurate as well, but enlightening seems to capture the essence best. Intrigued was what we were when we left for the summit, but enlightened is how we returned.

And, Even More Assaults on the First Amendment…


The James Rosen incident is indicative of a trend, in recent years, of chipping away at First Amendment rights. In the Rosen case, the Justice Department claimed that it did not violate the press freedom of the Fox News Correspondent  as he isn’t press. Instead, the DOJ argued, he was an “aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in a spy ring for having receiving classified information about North Korea from an intelligence analyst.

Evidence of Rosen’s spying consisted of an e-mail to Rosen’s source stating that he wanted to break “news ahead of my competitors” and that they could “expose muddle-headed policy when we see it—or force the administration’s hand to go in the right direction, if possible.”

Obama’s 2nd term high point: passage of his $620 billion tax increase bill

Barack Obama reached the high point of his 2nd term just 19 days before he is sworn-in for his 2nd term.  The passage of Obama’s $620 billion tax increase bill will be the zenith of his remaining 4 years in office.

Obama will sign nothing of substance into law unless conservatives in the House of Representatives  --  who suffered a temporary setback on the first day of 2013  --  approve of that law. 

Indeed, Speaker John Boehner will not allow any major legislation that conservatives do not approve of to reach the House floor after the fiasco which occurred on the floor of the House of Representatives last night.  In violation of former Republican Speaker Dennis Hastert’s rule of not bringing to the House floor any major legislation which does not have a majority of the Republican majority approving of the legislation, Boehner caused the Republicans in the House to suffer a major defeat. 

Boehner managed to get only 85 Republicans to vote for Obama’s $620 billion tax increase bill. An overwhelmingly majority of Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats (172 out of 188 voting Democrats) voted for Obama’s tax increase bill.  It was a stunning defeat for Boehner’s leadership style.

MilesEye View: Another "Conservative" Betrayal--This One Even Worse!

Cincinnati, Ohio (6/29/11)This morning, on the heels of the recent shocking betrayal by two republican senators who delivered the decisive votes to make 'Gay" marriage legal and a 'right' in New York, cometh a "Conservative" judge who ruled against an appeal of the Obama Health Care plan, saying that the plan, which requires all Americans to purchase health insureance or face financial penalites is "constitutional !" How's that again?

The Health Care scheme that Obama pushed on America despite vigorous objecion by the majority of citizens, was green-lighted by the Federal Appeals Court in Cincinnati this morning, keeping it active.

The judge who wrote the ruling, Jeffrey Sutton, a President George W. Bush appointee presents himself as a conservative. Judge James Graham, a Reagan appointee agreed with most of the opinion.

Obama's "Health Care" scheme to socialize medicine, is the vehicle Obama plans to drive America even closer to becoming a Communist State which is the goal of his sponsors. Suits have been filed agianst this socialist take-over of health care which they declare is unconstitutional. And it is.

His plan will bankrupt many small businesses, and individuals who simply cannot afford the forced purchase of this government plan which will actually reduce their health care.

Interesting: Our Executive Research Associate, Helen Trautman, CEO of Results Unlimited in Pittsburgh, reminded us that D.C. politicians made a law to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform, in all of its forms.  Nice.

Help determine the 2011 Conservative Agenda

Dear Friend,

What issues do you consider to be the most important issues facing our country this year?

We are surveying hundreds of thousands of grassroots conservatives all across the country to get their opinion on what should be included in the 2011 Conservative Agenda for Congress.

We need your feedback!

(Click here and cast your vote today)

Politicians may have their own ideas about what is important, but they need to know how conservative activists feel.

We want to let them know which issues are most important – and which issue most conservatives feel to be the “top priority” for the coming year.

Conservatives outnumber liberals in all 50 states according to new Gallup poll

Just in case you're tempted to get distracted by all that talk from the White House, Nancy Pelosi, etc. about how all those people showing up at townhall meetings really don't represent America, well it seems the numbers tell a different story:

Self-identified conservatives outnumber self-identified liberals in all 50 states of the union, according to the Gallup Poll.
At the same time, more Americans nationwide are saying this year that they are conservative than have made that claim in any of the last four years.

In 2009, 40% percent of respondents in Gallup surveys that have interviewed more than 160,000 Americans have said that they are either "conservative" (31%) or "very conservative" (9%). That is the highest percentage in any year since 2004.

Only 21% have told Gallup they are liberal, including 16% who say they are "liberal" and 5% who say they are "very liberal."
Thirty-five percent of Americans say they are moderate.

And, of course, we know that most "moderates" tend to be conservatives who are worried about running afoul of political correctness if they admit it.

Conservative victories in Europe threaten America's Democrat Party

The world conservative movement won a huge victory in Europe this past weekend because European voters rejected left-wing take-overs of businesses and huge government spending to combat the severe world-wide recession.   They are rejecting the Nanny state said Glenn Beck on his show on Monday.   

Considering that those socialist policies are exactly what the Obama administration is forcing upon America  --  with the help of an extreme left-wing United States Congress  --  the European election results portend disastrous consequences for the Democrat Party in next year's congressional elections  --  unless the "Blue Dog Democrats" and others with commonsense stop their party's rabidly partisan and ideological leadership.  

The center-right elected candidates picked up 267 seats in the European Parliament.  On the other hand, the center-left politicians won only 159 seats.   Daniel Hannan, conservative British Member of the European Parliament, said on the Glenn Beck Show on Fox News this past Monday that people make a mistake when they assume that liberal democracies are a permanent fixture in Europe.   

Likewise, the Democrat leadership in the White House and in Congress  --  as well as pessimistic Republicans  --  are making a mistake if they believe Barack Obama's, Nancy Pelosi's and Harry Reid's pell-mell rush to socialism will be a permanent fixture in this country.

Theological Slippery Slope

This blog is in regard to the Christian Coalition's article, "Christian Coalition of America condemns Democrat-controlled House for passing "Thought Crimes" bill".  I would like to take a moment to address the misguided logic within this article as well as the theological distortions used to oppose the Hate Crimes Bill.  It seems that this bill has dredged up some fears of Christian conservatives that the right to denounce homosexuality in a non-threatening manor would be taken away.  This is hardly the case.  Fox News published an article today on their website that refutes many of these claims:

"Frederick Lawrence, a law professor at George Washington University, said there is nothing within the language of the hate crimes bill that would allow for the prosecution of individuals who simply speak out against a particular sexual or ethnic group.

Former Senator Rick Santorum speaks out on former GOP leadership

Former Pennsylvania US Senator Rick Santorum spoke out this past weekend about the failures of past Republican leadership.  Specifically, how they had failed conservatism, which then resulted in political defeat.

Addressing the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, DC, Santorum said that the losses at the ballot box came because the leadership lost sight of, or were unwilling to implement conservative principles.  He went on to say that it was “conservatives who failed conservatism and that failed America.” 

In regards to the current financial situation and recurring bailouts:

Santorum says he tried to convince his friends in the Bush White House that using billions in taxpayer dollars to bail out Wall Street banks in hopes of saving the credit markets was the wrong thing to do, but they did not listen to him and instead “opened up a door that the next president is driving a bulldozer through.”

And the next several generations of Americans will be paying for it.
