Akron Beacon Journal… Poll: Powerful incentive
November 26, 2012 - The Department of Energy and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory recently declared wind “a credible source” of new electricity generation for the country. Their report noted that wind power has grown dramatically, prices falling by 20 percent to 30 percent the past four years. Only natural gas has added more electricity capacity since 2006. The development of wind power brings benefits in the form of cleaner energy and a more diverse set of energy sources, among other things ... read more
Townhall Finance… It's the Grand Spending, Stupid!, by Bob Beauprez
Supposedly there are grand negotiations ongoing in Washington in search of a grand bargain to avoid a grand calamity - pushing the nation over the fiscal cliff. It appears, however, that whatever discussion is really happening is focused on how much additional "revenue" to extract from taxpayers' pockets instead of how strict of a diet to impose on the federal government. The Democrats are obsessing about raising tax rates, while the GOP talks about ... read more
Mail Magazine 24… Poll: More Americans Blame Republicans For Fiscal Cliff Impasse, by Bright Knight
Here we go again! Whatever happens benefits the Failure-in-Chief: if it goes wrong, the Republicans are blamed and if it works the Failure-in-Chief gets the merit. There is NO chance that Obama will move one inch toward the Republicans. Why should he? It works perfect for him the way it is. This is just freaking unbelievable! I mentioned it before and I finally think it might be the best solution: the GOP should have a press conference and tell the American people that the Failure-in-Chief... read more
Redstate… A Primer for Rich Donors Who Got Taken by Republican Consultants
By Erick Erickson - November 27th, 2012 - When consultants told rich donors who were funding them that they were not making money off the Super PAC’s that the rich idiots . . . er . . . donors funded, they were being honest. They probably were not. But ad heavy Super PACs outsourced the ad buys, the mail, the data collection, etc. to other groups that got commissions and you can be sure that a lot of these supposedly... read more
Mail Magazine 24… Can America Handle The Truth? by Jeff Greenlee
The United States of America is at a tipping point. It is past time we are told the truth and begin to solve the problems. The time for false hopes, hugs, and feel-good can-kicking is over. The talk is all about the ‘fiscal cliff’ and whether or not we can figure out a bipartisan solution to the economic realities that are going to happen sooner rather than later. The Benghazi scandal and the true motives of abandoning our own brave Americans in a time of need are undergoing a huge whitewash. The number of... read more
Townhall… Minorities Disproportionately Worse Off Under Obama, by Rachel Alexander
Nov 25, 2012 - It is puzzling that so many minorities voted for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney considering how disproportionately they have suffered economically during Obama's presidency. Black unemployment under Obama increased at a higher pace than whites, from 12.7% to 14.1%, ending at almost twice the unemployment rate of whites. Now, one out of every seven blacks is unemployed. White unemployment barely increased under Obama... read more
Upstart Business Journal… 14 tips for dealing with angry customers, by Young Entrepreneur Council
November 19, 2012 - When addressing online complaints from customers, members of the Young Entrepreneur Council suggest getting the customer on the phone and having a kind attitude can help remedy the situation… Young Entrepreneur Council We have all heard "the customer is always right"—whether this adage is true or not is up for debate—but we can all agree customers are not always easy to deal with. We asked the Young Entrepreneurship Council how they handle angry customers, particularly... read more
Townhall Finance… Let's Tax Matt Damon, by John Ransom
In the name of shared sacrifice, it’s time to impose a tax on the $7 billion in box office receipts that Hollywood generates. I added up the domestic box office activity for the week August 26 through September 1st based on figures provided by Variety. The take for the week for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Our Idiot Brother, Spy Kids: All The Time In The World, plus 130 other box office leaders was $136 million. Year-to-date those films... read more
Mail Magazine 24… How the public education system has failed Black and Hispanic students
In America's public high schools, 45% of black students and 43% of Hispanics (as compared to 22% of whites) drop out before their classes graduate. Dropout rates are especially high in urban areas with large minority populations, including such academic basket cases as the District of Columbia (57%), Trenton (59%), Camden (61.4%), Baltimore (65.4%), Cleveland (65.9%), and Detroit (75.1%). Of those black and Hispanic students who do manage to earn a diploma, a large percentage... read more
Some great puns to groan on, Sent by a CNO reader
When chemists die, they barium. Jokes about German sausage are the wurst. A soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran. I know a guy who's addicted to brake fluid.

Mail Magazine 24… Jobless Claims Over 400k For Second Week, by Bright Knight
Don't think even for a minute that this will be getting better soon. People will learn that elections have consequences. Unfortunately it doesn't hit just the Obama-voters but everyone is hurt. John Nolte writes at Breitbart: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistic, for the second week in a row, over 400,000 new jobless claims were filed across the country. Last week the number was 451k, this week it's 410k, and as we saw last week, most of the blame is falling on Hurricane Sandy. Last week the... read more
Townhall Finance… Higher Taxes Mean Bigger Government, not Lower Deficits, by Daniel J. Mitchell
President Obama and other statists in Washington want a big class-warfare tax hike. They claim the additional revenue is necessary to reduce red ink. But their ideological crusade is based on some blatant distortions. They tell us that tax increases are necessary, but even CBO data shows that the budget can be balanced in just 10 years if politicians merely limit federal spending so that it grows by “only” 2.5 percent per year. They tell us the “rich” should pay more, but we know upper... read more
Morning Briefing… Happy Thanksgiving from RedState, By Erick Erickson
11/22/12 - Not even on Thanksgiving morning do I get to sleep in. I have to get my Big Green Egg up to temperature, smear butter all over a turkey that I’ve had brining all night, shove a few fruits, vegetables, and herbs up its rear end, and get to smoking over some hickory and apple wood. Regular readers of the site know my wife is an excellent cook. By sundown today we will have gone through 21 pounds... read more Is The Obama EPA Running Its Own Black-Ops Program?
11/19/2012 Clandestine Government: During his first full day in the White House, Barack Obama promised he'd brought with him "a new era of open government." Yet again, we have a promise that hasn't been kept. Among the administration's many violations of public trust to recently become public is the Environmental Protection Agency's apparent attempt to keep some of its correspondence hidden from the light of day through the use of aliases. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, for... read more
Ronald Reagan and What I Got Wrong. By Erick Erickson
November 20th, 2012 Every person who talks and writes about politics gets stuff wrong. I’ve gotten my fair share wrong. But what I think I got most wrong in Campaign 2012 was the damage Mitt Romney’s “47%” remark would do to him. It may seem obvious, but bear with me. Mitt Romney was talking off the cuff to a supposedly off the record group of donors and muddled several data points together, ultimately telling the tale of the 47% who won’t vote for him for... read more
Toledo Blade… Get that degree
Editorial - Only 26 percent of Ohio adults have a four-year college degree, compared with 31 percent nationwide. Each percentage point by which the state lags the national rate costs the Ohio economy an estimated $2.5 billion a year. By 2018, a recent study projects, this state will have nearly a million new jobs that will require education after high school. If Ohio is to remain competitive in the national and global economies, it will have to graduate more of its residents from college, and keep more of... read more
Townhall Finance… How the Mainstream Media Finally Drove Me Mad. By Ann-Marie Murrell
Sex. That’s what it finally took to get anyone in the mainstream media to talk about Benghazi.  But of course they’re not talking about the brutal murder of four Americans on 9/11/12, nor the potential cover-up occurring now—nope, it’s all about sex, baby. Yes, I’ve known for years that the mainstream media news was not only dead but had never really existed other than as a political tool for the progressive... read more
Mail Magazine 24… CEOs Warn Obama of Dangers Posed by Fiscal Cliff, by Tony Lee
Twelve prominent CEOs, many of whom have warned against the dangers of raising taxes on those making over $250,000 and creating more economic uncertainty, met with President Barack Obama on Wednesday to discuss the looming fiscal cliff. There were no CEOs from defense-related industries at the meeting, even though sequestration will occur if no deal is reached on the budget during Congress's lame-duck session. The group included prominent donors to Democrats and Republicans... read more
Townhall… Both Sides Must Give Ground To Avoid Fiscal Cliff, by Michael Barone
Nov 19, 2012 - In his first formal press conference in months, Barack Obama showed that getting re-elected can increase a president's confidence and combativeness. He staked out tough stands on several issues, especially on the looming budget negotiations. Looking ahead to the "fiscal cliff" on Dec. 31, when the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts expire and sequestration cuts government spending sharply, Obama demanded $1.6 trillion of increased revenues as... read more
Townhall… The Obama Recession, by John C. Goodman
Nov 17, 2012 - Full time work is about to get scarcer. The reason? By hiring part-time workers who put in less than 30 hours per week, employers can avoid a mandate dictated by the new health reform law: either provide expensive health insurance or pay a fine equal to $2,000 per worker. Avoiding the mandate becomes even more attractive for low-wage employees, since they can get highly subsidized insurance in the newly created health insurance exchanges. According to the Wall Street Journal... read more
Winning the Defense Spending Debate, by Ken Blackwell
Nov 16, 2012 - With no time to recover from a thorough election day whooping, Republicans in a lame duck Congress are facing an even worse budgetary nightmare than last year. And they only have two months to negotiate a solution with President Obama. Last time, as the Chair the Balanced Budget Amendment campaign, fellow conservatives and I were urging Republicans to tie the unavoidable increase in the debt ceiling to a balanced budget amendment... read more
NPR… A Week Later, Pollster Says: 'I Was Drinking That Republican Kool-Aid', by S.V. DÁTE
November 14, 2012 - If voters were surprised to watch TV networks call the election for President Obama over Republican Mitt Romney minutes after polls closed in California last week, perhaps it was because of earlier statements like these: —"Romney has pretty much nailed down Florida." —"I think in places like North Carolina, Virginia and Florida, we've already painted those red, we're not polling any of those states again." —"Minnesota is very much a battleground state due to the low... read more
Mail Magazine 24… No real solutions - part of the plan? by Bright Knight
There is a reason why Obama doesn't address real problems properly. In my last column (I want Obama to fail -- so America can succeed) I wrote that Obama did not address real problems on several big issues, such as GM and Healthcare reform. With this column I want to write in more detail about this fact. Generally speaking, you make a problem even bigger when you do not address... read more
Mail Magazine 24… What Are Economists Really Saying About Tax Rate Increases?, by Salim Furth, Ph.D
Beware of comparing apples to oranges when it comes to tax rate studies. On Friday, Representative Pete Sessions (R–TX) and House Speaker John Boehner (R–OH) ran afoul of Glenn Kessler’s “Fact Checker” blog regarding a study of President Obama’s proposed tax increase. Before deciding on a tax change, policymakers are wise to look at the economic impacts of the change. Two Studies: In fact, two studies released this year predict that raising tax rates on high-income families and small... read more

Redstate… NLRB To Force Companies To Turn Over Employee Telephone Numbers & E-Mails To Unions? By LaborUnionReport - November 15th, 2012 - UPDATED: November 15, 2012–Now that the re-election of Barack Obama has taken place, this is back on the table. President Barack Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is considering a rule that would force private businesses to turn over their workers’ personal information — such as phone numbers, email addresses, and work schedules — to union organizers. While this rule would be intended to make it... read more
Townhall… Best Foot Forward? by Mona Charen
Nov 16, 2012 - Our large cruise ship sailed within view of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as a gathering of conservatives sponsored by National Review magazine considered the wreckage of the 2012 election. Most of the writers and commentators on board agreed with Ralph Reed of the Faith and Freedom Coalition that the last thing conservatives need to do now is to form a "circular firing squad." But lessons... read more
Canada Free Press… The End of an Empire - The Will of the People Has Spoken and America Died
Dr. Ileana Johnson PaughWednesday, November 7, 2012 Our Constitutional Republic died a peaceful death on November 6, 2012. Having reached the point of no return in a comatose state after years of progressive and illegal immigration assaults, the fabric of conservative society is now completely unraveled and Uncle Sam’s America is no more.

Townhall…… Senator Kyl Sees Higher Revenues Without a Tax Hike By Larry Kudlow
A federal budget deal to avoid the fiscal cliff can be achieved without raising tax rates, Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl said Friday on the Kudlow Report. “Tax revenues can be generated by two ways other than raising tax rates,” he said. “One is to eliminate some of the deductions, credits, exemptions, special provisions in the code that end up producing more revenue but without affecting the rates. And the other is through economic growth.” The senator from... read more
Mail Magazine 24… Zero Romney Votes in 59 Philadelphia Voting Divisions, by Bright Knight
Election Fraud? 99% of the votes for Obama in more than 100 Ohio precincts - These are numbers you usually see in communist countries and countries under a dictatorship. Look at the numbers that are listed in the article. Do you think that's real? These results are almost as unreal as those in Florida. Michael writes at the American Dream ( Barack Obama received more than 99% of the vote in more than 100 precincts in Cuyahoga County, Ohio on... read more

Redstate… No. By Erick Erickson
November 12th, 2012 - For five years I have consistently maintained that Mitt Romney could not be elected President of the United States. The only thing that changed was Barack Obama’s terrible debate performance and I made the unfortunate mistake of going with the herd toward “he can win now.” A year ago — to be precise, November 8th of last year — I wrote that Mitt Romney would be the nominee... read more

Contrary to popular opinion, I am not a "conspiracy theorist." I live in the real world – always have.

Mail Magazine 24… Was it stolen, by Bright Knight
When you add the information about the results in Cleveland and in the Philly locations, where Inspectors were removed, to the information in this article, you might question the whole election. Dave writes at [Note by Dr. Jack Wheeler: We are being asked to believe that Romney got close to three million fewer votes in 2012 than John McCain got in 2008. That's not possible. This election is a fraud. I don't know exactly how - rigging voting machines, hacking tabulation software... read more
Mail Magazine 24… The Election's Disastrous National Security Implications, by Erick Stakelbeck
Last week, I posed five national security questions for the next American president. We now know that President Obama will remain Commander-in-Chief. Here are just some of my immediate thoughts on the implications of the voting public's decision--for America's security, the Middle East and beyond. And remember, now that reelection is secure, there are no restrainers for the Obama administration foreign policy agenda over the next four years... read more
Bangor Daily News… Veterans Day 2012
The recent war in Iraq and continuing war in Afghanistan give Veterans Day special urgency. The nation is encountering new types of warfare and its consequences, which include several deaths of soldiers from Maine this year. Today we recall with new respect the veterans of wars past and present. Congress voted for Armistice Day as a legal holiday in 1938, 20 years after the first armistice ended the carnage of World War I on Nov. 11, 1918. Although the first world war was originally called... read more
Townhall Finance… Fiscal Cliff? Tax the Rich, by John Ransom
Barack Obama wants you to know that the rich are out of control. And I partially agree. It’s a matter of fairness. After thinking about it for a few years, he has finally figured out that our economic problems have a very simple explanation: There are too many rich people. I know of at least one too many. The one occupying the White House? Way too rich. Too many rich people are causing a jobless “recovery.” Having... read more
Washington Times,,, Election 2012: What really happened? Idea lost to ideologue
LAS VEGAS, November 8, 2012 – After every election there are celebrations for the winning side and recriminations for the defeated. Yet what usually fails to transpire is an actual understanding of what happened. Recent past elections provided clues to what the Democrats grasped and the Republicans ignored in this last election. This was a very close election and recriminations are best left to the side. Leftists like E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post and Joan Walsh at Salon will write their... read more
Mail Magazine 24… An Energy Policy Preview of President Obama’s Second Term
President Obama’s win last night means four more years of ever-more damaging regulation and ever-increasing difficulties in developing our oil, coal, and natural gas resources. President Obama announced his intentions to drive up energy costs in order to reduce energy consumption before he was elected and there is no reason to suspect that he will change course now. The one difference between now and four years ago is that the House of Representatives is controlled by... read more

Heritage Foundation… Morning Bell: The Next President and the Supreme Court, By Ed Meese
November 5, 2012 - Every vote counts. And this year, it could count double. One vote could decide both the immediate election and the course of constitutional law for decades to come. Just ask the senior federal officials responsible for our security immediately after 9/11 who were sued years later by Javaid Iqbal. During the investigation into the attacks, FBI officials identified Iqbal as a suspect of high interest and detained him in New York. He sued alleging that high government officials, including... read more

Mail Magazine 24… Look at who's running America
Just to let you know that when you vote for the man of your choice, then you also get a staff you have no control over! Appointed without Congressional approval and quietly changing the US policies. There are very few of us who know just what all of Obama's Czars do, as they quietly go about their "work" in the nation's capital. This listing of their names and job descriptions should be educational to all Americans, no matter what your political leaning. See who they are and realize what they want to do... read more
Mail Magazine 24… Cover-up: Obama Knew Benghazi Attack Was Terrorist
Very quietly, CBS released yesterday (Nov 4) hidden excerpts of a 60 Minutes interview with Obama, they taped on September 12. We all know, that the Failure-in-Chief watched the attack live. In the interview he admitted that the “spontaneous mob turned violent” story was untrue (but refused to call it terror attack!) and then lied two weeks by blaming the video - he even sent his UN-ambassador Rice out to spread this lie. And the Medias (especially CBS) covered Obama's lies. What exactly is... read more
Redstate… Who The Heck Knows? By Erick Erickson
November 6th, 2012 - Republicans are supposed to be “rah-rah” for Romney today. Democrats are supposed to be “rah-rah” for Obama today. I don’t much believe either side at this point. Democrats are supremely confident right now. Republicans not so much. It is a reversal from just two weeks ago. Here’s what I do know and do believe. I believe Mitt Romney will win Florida, Virginia, and Colorado. If he loses either Florida or Virginia, it’s an early night. If he... read more
Mail Magazine 24… What’s Scary: Federal Spending Per Household, by Emily Goff
On this Halloween, ghastly, ghoulish garb and haunted houses aren’t the only sources of spookiness in Washington. Americans across the country have cause for alarm, because the federal government spent a spine-chilling $29,691 per household in 2012. As The Heritage Foundation’s “Federal Spending by the Numbers—2012” shows, federal spending per household has grown 29 percent since 2002, when it stood at $23,010. Put another way, $29,691 is about two-thirds of the median household income... read more
Mail Magazine 24… Nine Economic Facts That May Determine Tuesday's Election, by Wynton Hall
Democrats and Republicans alike agree that jobs and the economy are the dominant issues that will drive Tuesday’s presidential outcome. Here, then, is a look at nine economic facts facing Americans as they head to the polls: 1. Every fifth man in America is out of a job. Black male unemployment is now at the highest rate it has ever been since the U.S. government began collecting statistics on the subject in 1972. Just 56.9 percent of black men over the age of 20 are now working... read more

In the following video (click link below), Porter Stansberry explains the difficulties facing small business owners using an easy to understand example of an Obama "offer" to create a partnership with business owners. Porter says "You'll see why there are no jobs in the U.S." Not quite. Jobs are soaring now because of Obamacare, just not in a way anyone should brag about. Businesses are reducing part-time hours across the board from 30-34 hours to 25... read more
Mail Magazine 24… Obama gets the credit -- and the blame! by Bright Knight
I'm sorry Mr. Empty Chair (and all the cheering Lib-crowd out there) but here comes the inconvenient truth (actually, for the first part, the Libs might love me - for the second... not so). Let's first go back to May 2, 2011. The Failure-in-Chief is sitting in the White House, together with a bunch of his incompetent crowd, and is watching live, how the Navy Seals got Osama Bin Laden. Of course, the failure-in-Chief wants to get credit for this action and ok, let's give it to him. Joe “the brain” Biden... read more
Heritage Foundation… Friedman Foundation Looks at Administrative Bloat in Public Schools

As we detailed in a recent report on growth in non-teaching positions in public schools across... read more
The 2012 Electoral College Map: States Sized By Votes, Not Geography
By Danny Sullivan - October 23, 2012 - It drives me crazy to see news outlets with US maps showing the states estimated to be either going for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election based on the geographic size of those states, rather than the number of Electoral College votes they carry. There are better maps they could and should use. Below, a guide to some you should... read more
Mail Magazine 24… The Benghazi Scandal, by Nonie Darwish
Americans need answers as to why the Obama administration had no response to the eight-hour terror attack on the US consulate in Benghazi and who was involved in the decision not to go to their aid despite their repeated requests for help. And why is the producer of the "Innocence of Muslims" video still in a California jail cell, allegedly for violating his parole, while none of the people who refused to rescue Ambassador Christopher Stevens and these immensely courageous former Navy SEALS has... read more
Townhall… The Uncool President, by Victor Davis Hanson
Nov 01, 2012 - In 2008, Barack "No Drama" Obama was the coolest presidential candidate America had ever seen -- young, hip, Ivy League, mellifluous and black, with a melodic and exotic name. Rock stars vied to perform at his massive rallies, where Obama often began his hope-and-change sermons by reminding the teary-eyed audience what to do in case of mass fainting. Money, like manna from heaven, seemed to drop spontaneously into his $1... read more
Thought to ponder, by Mona Lease
Attention voters: Concerning the upcoming Presidential Election and all the mudslinging we've been listening to and reading… "outsourcing" - jobs and the like, is a choice. It is available to any corporation or independent person that chooses to use this avenue to make money, have a product made, etc. As with all choices; there are good consequences and bad consequences. At the polls next Tuesday - take a deep breath. We rushed in with the election of our current president. We judged by the 1960's style of dress his "followers" wore, the peace signs, etc. Do not be deceived by what you "feel" or think you see. Ever Toodles!! MONA.

On this Halloween, a truly frightening specter is looming. No amount of garlic, crosses, or exorcists can help us—only Congress and the President can chase this ghoul away. It’s Taxmageddon.

Townhall Finance… Mitt Romney Is Tough On China, Weak On Reality, by Jerry Bowyer
Mr. Romney, here is the low point of your participation in this week’s foreign policy debate: SCHIEFFER: Well, Governor, let me just ask you. If you declare them a currency manipulator on day one, some people are — say you’re just going to start a trade war with China on day one. Is that — isn’t there a risk that that could happen? ROMNEY: Well, they sell us about this much stuff every year, and we sell them about this much stuff every year. So it’s pretty clear who doesn’t want a trade war. And there... read more
