1. National Security Adviser Jones: Jews Are Greedy Merchants

As the National Security Adviser, General James Jones is not known as a friend of the Jewish State. It was Jones who put together the team of Brent Scowcroft and Zbigniew Brzezinski to meet with the President and advise him to impose a solution on Israel. Earlier this week we may have gotten some insight into why Jones is not a fan of the Jewish Homeland. Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. President Obama concedes loss of House in 2010.

Calculating the trajectory of DOOM in a campaign is a tricky thing, but one of the classic signs of a campaign in trouble is the classic call for GOTV, or Getting Out The Vote. To put it very simply: while turnout is of course of vital importance to winning elections, explicitly basing your victory strategy around it – like the way that the President did, above – is a sign of a campaign expecting to lose. Winning campaigns don’t need to tell their supporters to go out and vote. They’ve already worked that out for themselves. It’s the campaign whose supporters know that they’re losing who have to be exhorted to go out to the polls, even if their candidate isn’t going to win*. I’m not going to declare DOOM on the Democrats’ attempt to keep the House just quite yet: it’s still six months before the election. But seeing the Democrats being already publicly worried about generating voter enthusiasm six months before the election is… encouraging. And amusing. Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. It’s Okay Because They Aren’t Tea Party Activists

A riot broke out in Arizona during a protest of Arizona’s new immigration law. The rioters were against the immigration legislation. They began rioting when a single, solitary person showed up as a counter-protest in favor of the immigration legislation. The counter-protestor had to be escorted away by police for his own protection. I suspect were these tea party activists, the major networks would make this the top story of the night.

4. Just Because They Say It Is So, Does Not Make It So

The left-wing advocacy class who hide behind press credentials have for the past year tried to make the tea party and Republicans agents of domestic terrorism. It was Barack Obama’s own Organizing For America that labeled them “right-wing domestic terrorists.” Well, the RGA puts up an advertisement called “Remember November”. These “journalists” get together on their Journolist — an email list where they conspire together to develop a common theme that they can repeat over and over as if it is fact regardless of whether or not it is — and decide that the GOP is talking about Guy Fawkes in a “political terrorism” theme.

5. Meet Jason Allen – Unions’ favorite Republican, sent to rescue Stupak seat from conservative wave

love when my income, that I worked my butt off for, is confiscated by the state government without my knowledge or consent, and given to the SEIU. Don’t you? Doesn’t everybody love to hand over their hard-earned cash to the Purple People Beaters? Well, if you live in Michigan, and you are a self-employed provider of personal care services to elderly Medicaid recipients in their homes, Republican State Senator Jason Allen wants to put you in the SEIU and put some of your money in their pockets.

6. Do You Live In Colorado?

This past Friday night I spoke to the Post-Party Summit in Pittsburgh, PA. More than 200 people turned out to learn how to be political activists, organizers, and candidates. The Post-Party Summits are all about Organizing for a free America, being conservative community organizers. This weekend in Denver, there will be a Post-Party Summit. You can learn more here.
