Pastor rules out Koran burning ‘for now’

From The Telegraph in the UK Terry Jones, a radical evangelist preacher, said the book burning was off while he held talks over a Muslim cleric’s plans to build a mosque near the site of the World Trade Centre that was destroyed in the September 11 terror attacks nine years ago. “Right now we have plans not to do it,” ...

What Has Ed Rendell Been Smoking?

Last night the Democratic Governor of Pennsylvania, Ed Rendell, attacked Republicans, saying members of the GOP “are nuts” and “flat-out crazy.” What have you been smoking, Ed? Whatever it is, there’s no question about it – you inhaled! Republicans are flat-out crazy, Rendell? We’re the Fruit Loops? Crap, Rendell, I can’t resist this one. I was going to take the ...

The Left is Scared to Death of Religion

I love good political discourse and debate.  Over the past few weeks, I engaged several of my left-of-center friends in discussions on the meaning of government and religion in our daily lives.  A recurring fear became evident in all four of the discussions – religion doesn’t bother them, it scares them to death.  In each of the one-on-ones, a distinct ...

President Max Headroom

The Last Night of the Proms is Great Britain’s annual culminating triumphal celebration of its culture through classical music and is traditionally held at Royal Albert Hall in London. But in 2002 the Proms were held at Buckingham Palace in a rare departure from the customary location at Royal Albert Hall. The reason why is evident when you watch this ...

Dodd-Frank: A Nightmare On So Many Levels

Senators Barney Frank and Chris Dodd put together yet another progressive nightmare for our marginally free-market system. Granted the thought of those two alone in a dark corner is nausea-inducing, that’s not where I’m going. The Dodd-Frank bill, otherwise known as the “Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” neither reforms Wall Street nor protects consumers (who should really need ...

The Trial of Barack Hussein Obama

Barry Soetoro, a.k.a. Barack Hussein Obama, desires to be known as a Christian.  Fair enough, but having decreed the manner of faith by which he shall be known, Obama has by default, also decreed the standard by which he shall be measured.  It has been said of many men that if they were charged with being a Christian, would there ...

Liberty Lost – Variations on a Theme

This week, the Conservative Daily News team decided to focus on liberty.  With the 8-28 Restoring Honor rally this weekend, it seems logical that we would focus on a foundational principle of our republic – individual freedom. “A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.” -Thomas ...

The Shredding of the Constitution

Individual liberties have been at the core of our Great American Experiment since it’s beginning.  The Federalist Papers and Declaration of Independence make the case that certain rights are inalienable and the Constitution sets down the framework by which they should be protected.  President Obama is the master at the helm of a liberty-destroying administration replete with progressive extremists.  Obama’s collection ...

Obama’s no Leader – He’s just a Dictator Wannabe

Barack Hussein Obama’s psyche is reminiscent of Warden Samuel Norton in the Shawshank Redemption, arguably one of the finest movies ever made. You remember the scene, don’t you? Andy Dufresne has just arrived at Shawshank. He and the other new prisoners are marched, chain-gang style, into the prison and met by Warden Norton. Just before disappearing back into the shadows from ...

Glenn Beck’s 8-28 Rally: The Wager and the Controversy

*Pictures and commentary from the rally here* On Wednesday Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck had a conversation where Bill promised to have Glenn anchor The Factor’s 8pm time slot.  The wager is based on O’Reilly’s projection that only 15 or 20 thousand people will show up for Beck’s 8-28 Restoring Honor event.  Glenn is hoping for well over 100,000 So ...

Why You Should Care About the CBO Report – Really This Time

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) produced the most-recent version of it’s periodic report on the state of the nation’s economy.  The report was as dreadful as expected: debt rising and tax receipts going down, but you knew that already.  What’s different is how they are either lying to candy coat how bad things are going to get, or they ...

Entitlism in Practice: Favors Taken to Extremes

We’ve defined Entitlism as basically gaining favor with the ruling class in order to get .. favors.  Now, do me a favor, quit asking for them .. from them.  We shouldn’t be dependent on them, they aren’t supposed to be doing them and no one believes that they are doing them for anyone but .. them. Certainly performing acts of ...

Sunday Rounds

Making the rounds through numerous news sources one theme popped out: Obama is planning a back door approach to getting his extreme agenda implemented even once the overwhelming majority in Congress is lost.  Of course, a few other random bits thrown in as well. At Jacksonsun.com there is a post that describes a back-door approach to cap-and-trade. President Obama is ...
