The Real Mitt Romney: Indexing the Minimum Wage, the Extreme, and Income Tax

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Isn’t it amazing how difficult Mitt Romney is finding it to mask his true self?  His list of disrobing statements is a long one, but, in a tireless effort to outdo himself, he continues to grow it almost daily. First there was his blasphemous comment about “indexing the minimum wage.”  Nice, [...]

More B.S. from the Master of Doublethink

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, February 15, 2012

So now the Duplicitous Despot wants us to believe, without a trace of a smile, that raising taxes is the same as a spending cut.  At his latest campaign gig, at Northern Virginia Community College in Annandale, Virginia, the shameless one touted his new tax and spend ideas, which he euphemistically [...]

Just Who Are the Establishment Republicans?

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, December 15, 2011

As the wild and wooly Republican race approaches blastoff time in Iowa, an interesting undercurrent is emerging — a battle between establishment Republicans and anti-establishment Republicans. When Ann Coulter appeared on Hannity Tuesday night and insisted that Mitt Romney is one of the two (along with Michele Bachmann) most conservative candidates [...]

Jihad Jane and Those Scary Republicans

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Jihad Jane Fonda recently told CNN’s Piers Morgan that the current crop of Republican candidates scare her.  Maybe there’s still hope that Jane and I will come together in our later years, because the current crop of Republican candidates scares me as well — but for different reasons. Ms. Fonda, the [...]

And Then There Were Three

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Thank heaven … er, Heaven … for Tim Tebow.  I don’t know how long his Mile High Miracle will last, but it’s sure a nice break from an extraordinarily non-newsworthy Republican presidential primary race.  The media have taken to scraping the bottom of the political barrel for pork rinds that can [...]

Are Levin and Paul Really That Far Apart?

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, December 10, 2011

Mark Levin is a national treasure.  Ron Paul is a national treasure.  So it was with great regret that I listened to Levin eviscerate Paul on his radio show Friday.  The sad thing is that if the two ever sat down together and had a lengthy talk, they would find that [...]

Another Washington Yawner

By Robert Ringer - Friday, December 9, 2011

Watching Republicans and Democrats battle over extension of the payroll tax cut is like watching two bald men fight over a comb.  Little wonder that a large percentage of the population ignores politics.  But, hey, never forget that we’re the chumps who elected these crooked clowns to partake in such silly [...]

Tiptoeing Through the Tulips Ends for Romney

By Robert Ringer - Friday, December 2, 2011

For the first time ever, I almost felt sorry for Mitt Romney as I watched him suffer through his recent interview with Bret Baier.  When Baier asked him about the subject he dreads most — Romneycare — I thought he might defecate on camera.  Fortunately, he didn’t … that I know [...]

The Last Train Out for Michele Bachmann

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, December 1, 2011

I love Michele Bachmann!  Which is why it has pained me to see how badly her handlers have misguided her campaign.  Now, with Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich leading the pack, I believe Congresswoman Bachmann has one last chance to reignite her candidacy. Why?  Because most Tea Party types will vote [...]

Nullification and Obamacare

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, November 30, 2011

The upcoming Supreme Court review of the constitutionality of Obamacare once again highlights a point that best-selling author Thomas Woods has made so clearly in many of his writings — that having one branch of government rule on a dispute that involves another branch is a ruse. In the case of [...]

The Return of the Huckster

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Well, waddaya know … look who’s speaking at the 2012 CPAC event, none other than the country’s number-one libertarian basher, Mike Huckabee.  It seems like just yesterday that the Huckster was attacking CPAC for embracing libertarianism and being “too extreme,” and was so upset that he declined to speak at its [...]

Another Jaw-Dropper from Newt

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, November 24, 2011

In every Republican debate thus far, there’s been a gaffe or position taken by one of the candidates that gives conservatives heartburn.  In Tuesday’s CNN debate, cosponsored by the Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute, it was Newt Gingrich’s turn to take center stage. In talking about illegal immigration, Gingrich [...]

A Message from the Ivory Tower

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, November 23, 2011

A couple of days ago, Gennaro Bernile, a professor of finance at the University of Miami, handed down these words of wisdom:  “The big debate is how do you reconcile shrinking the government with not killing the economy, because the government is a big chunk of the economy, and if you [...]

Elevating Farces to Crap

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Yesterday I labeled the media angst over the Super Committee’s possible failure (now a fait accompli) a farce.  But let me make it clear it was only one of a seemingly infinite list of farces that the criminal class and its media allies bombard us with daily. Which brings me to [...]

The Spending-Cuts Scam

By Robert Ringer - Friday, November 4, 2011

Political news junkies are all abuzz about the big November 23 deadline that the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (“super committee”) is up against.  The job of the twelve-member committee is to cut $1.2 trillion from the federal budget over the next ten years. Only in Washington could anyone take [...]

More Cain Attacks on the Way

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, November 2, 2011

By now you’ve undoubtedly heard more about the Herman Cain “sexual-harassment” non-event than you probably wanted to know, so no sense in my going into the details.  What I do want to comment on, however, is the big picture, which the media usually misses in their zealous quest to find sleaze [...]

The First Lady to the Rescue

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, October 29, 2011

As the harsh realities of the U.S economy, Greece’s bankruptcy and the unraveling of the European Union, Muslim takeovers of European countries, Eric Holder’s disregard for the law, and Barack Obama’s Marxist policies continue to surface, pundits and politicians stubbornly continue to play the Let’s Pretend Game. This odd game of [...]

Dismissing Herman Cain

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Establishment Republicans and most of the media are going to great lengths to downplay Herman Cain’s chances of winning the Republican nomination.  Not so much because of his slips on such issues as abortion and negotiating with terrorists, but because he doesn’t have the money or staff to be competitive. While [...]

Which Revolutions to Support?

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Interesting that the presidential pretender in the White House supported the revolution in Egypt that overthrew one of America’s staunchest allies, Hosni Mubarak. Also interesting that he supported the revolution to overthrow Muammar Qaddafi in Libya, though Qaddafi certainly was no friend of the United States. And, most interesting of all, [...]

Another Thug Ruler Bites the Dust

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, October 20, 2011

Now that Muammar Gaddafi is gone, it’s time to start conjecturing about who the new thug ruler in that country will be.  If history teaches us anything, it’s that the masses will continue to live in misery.  Think Napoleon … Lenin … Mao … Castro … Ho Chi Minh … the [...]

Hello, Republicans … are you there?

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Is any Republican presidential candidate capable of removing Republican rivals from his crosshairs long enough to focus on Barack Obama’s lies, distortions, and hypocrisies?  Don’t any of them think it’s noteworthy to point out that Obama, who excoriates Wall Street bankers seven days a week, is the biggest recipient of Wall [...]

The Democrats’ Keep-It-Simple Strategy

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, October 13, 2011

As the Occupy Wall Street confusniks continue their odorous turf occupations in Washington, New York, Boston, and other cities across the country, angry far-left politicians are becoming emboldened.  So much so that they’re planning to fall back on one of their favorite rules of engagement:  “Whatever we’ve done wrong, turn it [...]

Christie’s Huge Gamble

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Aside and apart from its being the dirtiest profession known to mankind, politics is also a game of risk taking.  Thoreau described voting as “a sort of gaming, like checkers or backgammon, with a slight moral tinge to it, a playing with right and wrong, with moral questions; and betting naturally [...]

Joe Biden on Fairness

By Robert Ringer - Sunday, October 9, 2011

When David Gregory, the uber-left host of “Meet the Press,” asked Joe Biden why the economy is getting worse, Biden replied, “The core is, the bargain has been breached with the American people.  The core is [that] the American people do not think the system is fair or on the level.” [...]

On Pretending Obama Wasn’t Involved

By Robert Ringer - Friday, October 7, 2011

Now, let me get this straight.  The Obamists want George Bush tried for squirting water up the nostrils of KSM, who was charged with war crimes and murder by a U.S. military commission, but think it’s perfectly alright to blow to smithereens an American citizen who isn’t even officially charged with [...]

Did Obama really admit to failing?

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, October 5, 2011

In answer to George Stephanopoulos asking him how he can convince people that they’re better off than they were four years ago, teleprompterless Barack Obama answered: “Well, I don’t think they’re better off than they were four years ago.  They’re not better off than they were before Lehman’s collapse, before the [...]

Buffet Shifts into Backtrack Mode

By Robert Ringer - Sunday, October 2, 2011

The once media-shy Warren Buffett seems to have developed an affinity for the spotlight in his latter years.  In an appearance Friday on Fox Business, Buffet said (in reference to people urging him to pay more in taxes voluntarily), “I would say if you have a country with a deficit of [...]

Our President: Patriotic, Tough, and Decisive

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, October 1, 2011

The killing of Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen, which supposedly was ordered by Barack Obama himself, is sure to confuse a lot of people who have abandoned, or were on the verge of abandoning, our fearless leader.  Obama, of course, was quick to put an exclamation mark on the killing [...]

Is Cain the Antidote to Obama’s Deception?

By Robert Ringer - Friday, September 30, 2011

Yesterday I said that if by next spring or summer the polls show that Obama and congressional Democrats are going down to defeat, we should be on the lookout for a phony crisis that could be used as an excuse for a state of emergency and suspension of the 2012 elections. [...]

Will the 2012 elections be suspended?

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, September 29, 2011

Left-wing Democratic Governor Beverly Perdue of North Carolina, who is headed for defeat in 2012, created quite a stir recently when she said at the Rotary Club in Cary, North Carolina: I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold [...]

Coming immediately on the heels of my article “Triumph of the Lie,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s truth-filled speech at the United Nations Friday afternoon was both refreshing and timely.  In a way that any halfway intelligent person could understand, Mr. Netanyahu clearly spelled out the historical facts about the so-called [...]
