Colin Powell Embodies the RINO Mentality

Colin Powell claimed Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that he is a Republican. In typical RINO fashion, Powell left no doubt he is a liberal that will remain a Republican to help the party become as fractured as possible. Powell is convinced the party needs to take a more centrist stance and allow the GOP to broaden the base towards the middle and abandon the "very very narrow base." Powell wants to abandon principle to become a player.

Doug Ross: Did anti-Obama campaign contributions dictate which Chrysler dealers were shuttered?

Interesting to say the least, a bit disconcerting at best:

A tipster alerted me to an interesting assertion. A cursory review by that person showed that many of the Chrysler dealers on the closing list were heavy Republican donors.

Maryland's fleeced taxpayers fight back.

From the Wall Street Journal:

Here's a two-minute drill in soak-the-rich economics:

Maryland couldn't balance its budget last year, so the state tried to close the shortfall by fleecing the wealthy.

Doug Ross: Dealergate: Stats demonstrate that Chrysler Dealers likely shuttered on a partisan basis

Doug Ross is on the case of why many Chrysler dealerships are being shut down while others that favor Obama remain open.

Dealers on the closing list donated millions to Republicans, $200 for Obama

The initial pass at the list of shuttered dealers showed they had donated, in the aggregate, millions to Republican candidates and PACs and a total of $200 to Barack Obama.

In fact, I have thus far found only a single Obama donor ($200 from Jeffrey Hunter of Waco, Texas) on the closing list.

Another review of all 789 closing dealerships, by WND, found $450,000 donated to GOP presidential candidates; $7,970 to Sen. Hillary Clinton; $2,200 to John Edwards and $450 to Barack Obama.

Now, and this is important, Chrysler claimed that its formula for determining whether a dealership should close or not included "sales volume, customer service scores, local market share and average household income in the immediate area."

Read the rest here. The work that Doug Ross and others in the blogosphere are doing on this issue is important. It shows us that MSM has failed its readership by not persuing the story and discounting anything that makes their idol, the Dear One, look bad.

Biden: Obama Helpless Without Teleprompter

Joe Biden never fails to amuse us with his many verbal foibles. However, his latest quip, directed at his master in chief, seems to show a little discontent with the 'follow the leader' mandate and private admonishments from the One. Reports have it that Obama is having a problem with Biden's shoot from the lip comments and has privately told him to pull it back some or just keep his mouth shut. Maybe he told him not to speak without the aid of a teleprompter and leave the thinking to his betters.

Vice President Joe Biden turned his humor on his boss Wednesday, joking publicly about President Barack Obama’s known addiction to Teleprompters.

VAT Will bring the Economy Down

The Value-added tax is government sanctioned financial genocide on America's future economic health and growth. The government under Obama will not be satisfied until every one of us are struggling just to make ends meet. The VAT scheme will be used to prop the socialised health care system which will be used primarily to fill out the death certificates of the poor that will not be able to afford to heat their homes or feed their families. The Obama's plan for a trickle up economy is a lunatics scheme to commit financial genocide on the working poor. And the rich, and the middle class...
