The Maricopa County Republican censure cited a list of grievances, including McCain’s “long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats, such as Amnesty, funding for ObamaCare, the debt ceiling, liberal nominees, [and] assaults on the Constitution and 2nd amendment.”

Anyone from Virginia know about this guy? Can you get behind him?
First it was Christy getting even with his political rivals by lane closures on a bridge. Breathless MSM screeching for investigations and beheading!
Then (although it was first chronologically) came the news that Obama got even with Standard & Poor’s by filing a multi-billion dollar lawsuit as political retaliation for the downgrade.
Now we have New York City’s new Mayor retaliating against neighborhoods that didn’t vote for him by not sending the snow plows to them during a blizzard.
Where are those same breathless screams for investigation against Obama and de Blasio?
I CAN’T HEAR YOU !!!
What are the chances the MSM will call for investigations?
White House Accused of Using Multi-Billion Dollar Lawsuit as Political Retaliation
From Fox News
There are new claims that the Obama administration filed a multi-billion dollar lawsuit as political retaliation against a company that didn’t do what the president wanted.
The financial services firm, Standard & Poor’s, threw down a stunning challenge in court claiming that former U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner threatened the chairman of S&P’s parent company in a phone call that warned of consequences after the downgrade came.
It came just days after S&P angered the White House by downgrading the U.S. credit rating in the middle of the 2011 debt ceiling debate.

Frilliant Song Lyrics – “Wendy Davis Lies”
by sundance at The Last Refuge
Set to the tune of “Bette Davis Eyes,” by Kim Carnes
Her hair is Barbie gold
Her filibuster flies
Her heart is always cold
She’s got #WendyDavisLies
She’ll turn her sneakers on you
The media won’t question her twice
Fundraises in New York, oh
She’s got #WendyDavisLies

I know we have posted this before and it has been around for a long time.
I think we just need reminding sometimes.
They’re Planning the First Legal “Bank Robbery” in U.S. History
By Peter Krauth
So-called “bail-ins,” which give banks the right to dip into your savings to pay for their lousy financial decisions, have been on the table for years, ever since Cyprus tested the idea.
But they’re moving beyond the “testing phase” now.

The latest clue came from a seemingly benign banking conference on December 2, when one man revealed some frightening central government intentions.
And anyone taking careful notes understands the consequences.

Blown Away? US Suspends Wind Power Subsidies, For Now
by Breitbart News
Historic subsidies propping up US wind energy ended on January 1 and Congress refused to renew them, despite supporters arguing that the aid has made renewable power cheaper than coal.
The United States has subsidized wind-sourced electricity since 1992 to promotes the use of green energy and crack America’s dependence on the fossil fuels blamed for climate change.
Last year, billions of dollars in wind production tax credits, or PTCs, amounted to some 2.3 cents per kilowatt hour for an industry that has struggled to compete against oil and gas.
But winds of change are blowing. The repeatedly renewed credits expired at the end of 2013, along with many other renewable energy benefits.

Why liberals hate black self-reliance
by Thomas Sowell
IF THE SHARE of the black vote that goes to the Democrats ever falls to 70 percent, it may be virtually impossible for them to win the White House or Congress, because they long ago lost the white male vote and their support among other groups is eroding. Against that background, it is possible to understand Democrats’ desperate efforts to keep blacks paranoid, not only about Republicans but about American society in general.
Liberal Democrats, especially, must keep blacks fearful of racism everywhere, including in an administration whose Cabinet includes people of Chinese, Japanese, Hispanic and Jewish ancestry and two consecutive black secretaries of state. Blacks must be kept believing that their only hope lies with liberals.
Not only must the present be distorted, so must the past – and any alternative view of the future must be nipped in the bud. That is why prominent minority figures who stray from the liberal plantation must be discredited, debased and, above all, kept from becoming federal judges. [snip]

What crazy national day falls on your birthday?
Christmas is great and all but it’s so boring – EVERYONE celebrates Christmas. So we decided to have a look at some unconventional & weird days we could fill the calendar with. First stop, the internet. Unsurprisingly we were not disappointed. Though some of these may be a little obscure (give them a quick Google if you’re unsure), they are all genuine national days somewhere in the world.
Which one falls on your birthday?
