AS A LIFE LONG CONSERVATIVE I WELCOMED THE NEWS THAT THE PONZI SCHEME OF MADOFF PRODUCED SOME FORTUITOUS EVENTS FOR CONSERVATIVES LIKE ME. The sudden collapse of the Madoff hedge fund, resulted in the revelation that Madoff swindled many clients out of up to $50 billion.Madoff’s hedge fund collapse has hurt — and in some cases fatally wounded — scores of nonprofit groups and charitable foundations. And it is notable that many of his victims are Leftist organizations.
Madoff is(or was) a heavy donor to Democratic candidates, but his fund also did irreparable harm to the liberal and far-left causes he loves.
At least two major left-leaning charities are closing their do…Read more >
IS ECOLOGY A RELIGION OR THE NEW HOME OF THE “COMMIES”?For a long time I have felt that the Ecology movement was the new religion for secularists. The Internet even has a web page for “The Church Of Deep Ecology”, but lately I have begun to feel that many, not all, Ecology leaders and fellow travelers are members of the resurgent American Communist Party!
This opinion has been reinforced by an article in the Friday edition of Investors Business Daily. The article is entitled “Green Comes Clean”. “In a letter addressed to President-elect Obama and his wife, Michelle, James Hansen, head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, makes an appeal for a carbon tax, ostensibly as a means for cutting emissions of carbon dioxide, a gas that’s a…Read more >
One has to admit that senator designate Roland Burris from Illinois has one thing goimg for him--audacity and boldness!

All this preparation despite the fact that President-elect Barack Obama has opposed the appointment of former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris by Rod Blagojevich to his vacant Senate seat.

24 CONSERVATIVES SIGN ON TO RESOLUTION « previous entry | next entry » Jan. 1st, 2009 | 11:37 am
In action reminiscent of the Ronald Reagan years, 24 of the 128 members of the Republican minority Congressional delegation, have signed on to a Proposal to the Republican party by James Bopp vice-Chairman of the Republican National Committee. The Congresional Proposal argues that the financial bailout effectively nationalized the banking system, and that the rescue packages are “moving our free-market based economy another dangerous step closer to Socialism”! If introduced as a Bill and approved, it would put the party on record as opposing the bailouts of the financial and automotive industries, and that no more bail outs would be voted for by…Read more >
ISRAEL MUST DEFEAT HAMAS OR THEY WILL BE DESTROYED « previous entry | next entry » Dec. 31st, 2008 | 09:04 am The members of the anti-Israel Press are highlighting the numbers of “civilians�� being killed by the bombs being dropped by the IDF jets that are trying to rid the World once and for all of a cancer that has festered in the Gaza Strip for decades. To try to help readers of this blog understand just what Hamas is, and the threat it poses to the one ally the USA has in the Middle East. I have included a time line of the Hamas movement.
- Hamas is an acronym for Islamic Resistance Movement and also means “zeal�� in Arabic.
- It is formally committed to destroying Israel and putting an Islamic state in its place. But Hamas has said it w…
