3 Big Protests Loom for the end of Summer 2012: DNC, RNC, NYC

Some people schedule their summers around expensive megaconcerts. Some people schedule their summers around beach parties. Some people schedule their summers around protest. If you’re in the last category, here’s your heads-up for the end of Summer 2012:

Big protest #1: March on the Republican National Convention, Tampa FL, August 27-30

Big protest #2: March […]

Homeland Security Brags About Domestic Surveillance Used During 2008 DNC

Through its “Fusion Center” program, the military and civilian wings of the United States government have been disseminating classified information on Americans collected through warrantless wiretapping programs to state officials, local sheriffs, town and county governing bodies and various private corporations. In turn, these local officials and private corporations have been amassing their own data […]

Revelation: The DNC Certified Obama as Qualified. It’s a Scandal!

OK, folks, are you ready for the latest Barack Obama conspiracy theory? Take a deep breath and hold onto your seats, because here it is:

Back in 2008, the Democratic National Committee made the following declaration, with notarized signatures and everything:

Aha! You see? This is the nail in the coffin! This document clearly […]

When Democrats Agree to Inject Religion in Politics, Religions Fight Over Which One

The backlash was inevitable.

Last week, the Democratic Party filled its quadrennial convention with references to gods, appeals to gods and even the claim that gods are working for the Democrats. Well, that’s not entirely accurate; actually, all of the many references to gods during the Democratic National Convention were references to one, single, provincial […]

Democrats Definitively Shove Richardson Speech Down Memory Hole

Six days out, the Democratic Party has definitively shoved Bill Richardson’s speech of Thursday, August 28 down the memory hole. The DNC spent nearly a week simply pretending that Richardson didn’t give a speech, not including Richardson’s speech at all in its list of convention speeches.

This morning, I see that the Democrats have […]

Very First DNC Speaker Claims God Working for the Democrats

You know, the speeches given at the 2008 Democratic National Convention are not casual affairs. They’re not idiosyncratic expressions of individual notions. They’re read, re-read and carefully vetted by committees of Democratic Party bureaucrats to ensure that the ideas expressed in them are consistent with the message and tone the DNC wants to convey. So […]

Hillary Clinton Says You Must Teach Your Children That Anything Is Possible As Long as You’re Not a Hillbilly

Pardon me, but did that headline upset you?

All right, no, she didn’t say that. But imagine if she did. Imagine if in her August 2008 DNC speech Hillary Clinton said the following:

That is our duty, to build that bright future, and to teach our children that in America there is no chasm too […]

Democratic Party Envisions Theocracy At Denver

All week long, the Democratic National Convention is holding official religious prayer ceremonies and organizing the leaders of tax-exempt religious organizations to make plans for how those tax-exempt organizations can be involved in the Democratic Party’s campaign, and then use the power of government to enact religious policies that please those organizations. […]

The Violent Bicycles of Denver Worry Democrats And Police

It doesn’t send a positive message that Democratic Party officials are getting special police protection from bicycles. If I were head of the Democratic National Committee, I’d make sure to issue an official statement condemning the paranoid police pursuit of bicycles – and I’d tell the Denver Police to back off. […]

Barack Obama Gives Nonreligious Americans The Cold Shoulder

Giving religious Democrats, and leaders of tax-exempt religious organizations, special access to political leaders in the Democratic Party, while excluding non-religious Democrats from that access, is not a way to demonstrate unity. It’s a way to promote divisiveness and discrimination. […]
