Restore the Fourth Protests against Surveillance ready to hit 60 U.S. Cities on July 4, 2013

In late June 2013, I shared information with you about Restore the Fourth protests taking place in 34 cities across the United States. These demonstrations react to the news that President Barack Obama has unleashed a vast civilian and military surveillance program, collecting up all phone, e-mail, text message and large-provide internet traffic — including [...]

Conservative Media and Blogosphere to Nail Romney on Flag Pin Issue… any day now…

When Barack Obama failed to wear a lapel pin during the 2008 presidential race, FOX News went ape over it:

The conservative blogosphere couldn’t stop talking about it for months. Flag pin, flag pin, flag pin, flag pin, flag pin.

So surely Michelle Malkin, Pamela Gellar, FOX News and the gang will be rolling [...]

I am a Charter Member of the George W. Bush Presidential Center

I am so excited.

I got a letter in the mail today, a letter containing a very special card and a very special message just for me:

The next time some conservative comes up to me and tells me I’m not a Real American, I’ll just pull this card out of my wallet and [...]

Right Wingers: the United States is Too Weak to Absorb a Terrorist Attack

The right-wing blogosphere is agog at President Barack Obama for saying the following to journalist Bob Woodward earlier this summer:

I said very early on, as a Senator and continue to believe, as a presidential candidate and now as president, that we can absorb a terrorist attack. We will do everything we can to prevent [...]

AFA Tea Party T-Shirt? Patriotically Made with Cheap Haitian Labor

The fundamentalist Christian American Family Association is a hairtrigger organization, calling boycotts against companies for the moral outrage of not using the word “Christmas” in advertising, even when, um, they actually do use the word.

The same AFA is calling for Americans to summon up their patriotic fervor to take part in the Tea Party [...]

Democratic Party Sheep Begin their Bleat: Nowadays, Dissent is Bullshit

During the Bush years, we heard again and again from members of the Democratic Party that “Dissent is the Highest Form of Patriotism.” They were right. Mark Twain put it another way:

The citizen who thinks he sees that the commonwealth’s political clothes are worn out, and yet holds his peace and does not agitate [...]

Michele Bachmann Calls For Revival of McCarthy Hearings

Apparently, Michele Bachmann thinks that Americans would love to see a repeat of the McCarthy hearings. Count me out. [...]

Palinism of the Day: 79% of America is Fake and Hates America

“We believe that the best of America is in the small towns that we get to visit, and in the wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard-working, very patriotic, very pro-America areas of this great nation. This is where we find the kindness and the [...]

Republican Cult of Nationalism Enshrined in GOP Platform

Under the cult proposed by the GOP platform, the deity to be worshipped would be the state itself. The nation of the United States of America would be elevated to the status of a god. [...]

A Map of Patriotism in America After the FISA Amendments Act

This is my map of patriotism in the United States. Some of the 50 states had two Senators who acted in allegiance to their Oaths of Office to “support and defend the Constitution” by voting NO against the FISA Amendments Act, the bill to become law that enables warrantless domestic spying in spite of the [...]

What it Means for Barack Obama to Have Lost My Vote

Last week, I indicated in a video that because Barack Obama had not only broken his promise to oppose the FISA Amendments Act through filibuster, but had also turned his back on the Bill of Rights in general and the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in particular, Barack Obama had “lost my vote.”

I’ve [...]
