Hours after declaring Sunday that he expects to be running for president within a month, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said he's worried the United States could be “a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists,” in the foreseeable future, according to Politico.

I don't blame them. It seems contradictory that the country could be atheist AND dominated by Muslims...how stupid is that? It seems like Newt's logic to this Christian audience is all "crossed" up hahaha!
For instance the Civil Rights movement in the 60's was perpetrated by people who were bored, with no real job, and desperate for attention. Black people were freed under the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments. What did they need a movement for 100 years later?
It's like Martin Luther King Jr. was trying to say black people in the south were free AND dominated by white people. To think we gave that guy a day...pssh!
Obama has left liberals in a state of deevolution that causes them to get winded reciting sound bytes that extend beyond one syllable....but maybe they can take a stab at what Newt was trying get to the heart of...
If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything.
Thanks Malcolm X!
This country is a Christian nation, at least it was founded that way. Even the founding fathers believed America was blessed because its people believed in Him. Newt is warning the Christians who are left to reassert themselves or cede the country to ideologies that guarantee His blessing will be lost.
Liberals think the Christian and American identities are separate, it shows how far they've fallen of Uncle Sam's bandwagon. Not only are they not separate, they're mutually inclusive.
It's like chocolate chip cookies. If you remove the chocolate chips from America then it becomes something different (and if Michelle Obama gets what she wants and removes the sugar altogether then America would be like a big cracker...so she didn't think that cause through very well did she?).
The atheist left doesn't understand this. They think it's all hocus pocus while they wait with bated breath for the aliens who landed on earth millions of years ago to play Johnny Humanseed to return and prove us superstitious Christians wrong about creation.
They think America is great just because, and that can't ever change. That's why they don't believe in her exceptionalism, and shrug at her decline.
So come on Christians! You must be present to win, so shake a leg! You've gotta start showing up to the game because I've heard that "I told ya so" pie tastes even worse than the humble kind.Add a comment
Doug Ross put the president's justification for engaging our military with Libya...
We Had to Support Al Qaeda in Libya To Prevent a Refugee Crisis That Could Hurt the Muslim Brotherhood's Rise in Egypt

I have a different way of putting it. Basically to me Obama is Switzerland. Not because of anything remotely resembling neutrality...
With Harry Reid in charge of the Dems in Congress it's hard to believe we didn't take the senate last fall too.
“For the sake of our economy, it’s time for mainstream Republicans to stand up to the Tea Party and rejoin Democrats at the table to negotiate a responsible solution that cuts spending while protecting jobs," he said.
Last week Reid put $7.5 billion in discretionary cuts and $3.5 billion in mandatory savings on the table as a counteroffer to the $51 billion in additional cuts the GOP is seeking.
More at Weasel Zippers
Reid called The $51 billion, which is less than 5% of the deficit "extreme" and that we have to....what....RESTORE THE DEFICIT FOR THE SAKE OF THE ECONOMY?!?
Trillion dollar deficits and a 14 trillion dollar national debt aren't extreme to this sonova.......but cutting them down is!?!
Vegas casinos must be begging for this moron to play poker at their establishment. Why doesn't Reid just admit he's trying to collapse our economy:
GOP: We need to do something about our budget deficit, we have to cut spending down to the same levels of revenue is actually coming in.
Reid: Really? That's weird because I was thinking we need to maintain it at 1 trillion dollars.
Reid: For the sake of the economy silly!
GOP: Oh? But we have to turn things around, is prospect the world could collapse the economy by dumping our debt enough to make you change your mind on this?
Reid: The world is not enough!
Reid: Bond, James Bond.
GOP: Oh....The world is not enough...I get it... Um, we really can't cut anything? Because this 11 billion you're suggesting is like pouring a shot of whiskey into the ocean and expecting the fish to get drunk.
Reid: You Republicans just aren't serious about solving any problems are you?
Reid: The problem is the economy, right?
Reid: We have to do what Nevadans do with their problems, just get rid of them! That's why they elected me Senator so many years ago, so they could send me away to DC.
GOP: So if we collapse the economy, the problem is solved because it will have been destroyed-
Reid: -and then we can move on to more important stuff! See?
GOP: With your glasses? No thanks.
I know this is a bit dramatic, but I had to write Reid as more intelligent than he really is, or it would've been difficult for him to carry the story.Add a comment
If you don't know who the Koch brothers are, and why they make liberals more hopped up than Charlie Sheen after a line of cocaine four hookers long, then check out earlier posts I've done about the subject here, here, and here.

A year ago I came up with a list of ways you might be a conservative, AKA volume 1.
A few months later I had volume 2.
Here's a few more
If you thought "The Kings Speech" was a documentary about the invention of teleprompters...
If you're afraid to go on a show called "Are You Smarter than the Vice President?"...
If you think social networking is a government program that requires your neighbor share their smart phone with you...
When you hear "Always with Wings" and you think maxi pads...instead of how Al Gore travels between mansions...
If you think saying "thats a bright idea" is discriminatory against the
blind visually impaired and Joe Biden.
If your favorite sexual position is Democratic legislation.
If you get your news from The View.
If you've ever had dead brain cells reactivate because of The View.
If you attend a book club in which members only discuss written transcripts of what happened on The View.
If Meghan McCain is your favorite conservative intellectual...
If you'd draw a Hitler moustache on your own face if you ever disagreed with yourself.
If during the Glenn Beck show he discusses his paranoid connection between mid east rebellions and the Muslim Brotherhood and you start screaming "OH YEAH? WHAT ABOUT SCOTT WALKER?"
If you think the second amendment only applies to a well regulated militia and television coverage of the Palins...
If you're so environmental that you literally go green recycling bath water...
If Sarah Palin's crosshairs make you so nervous you now maintain a shaved head...
If the only right to a private education for children you're willing to defend in court is the kind provided by NAMBLA...
If you think Charlie Sheen did more to ruin the meaning of "winning" than Democrats in 2008...
If you're freaking out because you've always thought Obama losing reelection would be the end of the world...and you just realized the election is in 2012....
You might be a liberal.Add a comment
I've tried to avoid going there for a while, and her hypocrisy on the matter made it easier to poke fun, but I couldn't resist on this idea...Add a comment
One of my favorite columnists in existence, Peggy Noonan, had a great piece today on how Obama owes the country an explanation of his actions in Libya.
As usual she is spot on. It's not like we're asking him to solve any problems, we just want him to give us an explanation. You'd think he'd treat that like we just asked him to celebrate pre-Christmas. He gets a script, a teleprompter, he doesn't have to answer any questions, and he'll speak from his desk, so doesn't even have to change out of his golf shorts!
But no, we wake up one day to find out that we're lobbing tomahawk missiles and potentially creating a global cous cous crisis, and we don't even get a flippin' magazine cover out of it?
For two years this guy chased cameras like he was going to cheat on Michelle with one of them, and now we don't get to find out why he's sending us into ANOTHER war.
The worst thing about all this is the left seems to be on the same side as us, but he's a Democrat so they're more interested in talking about the apparent conservative hypocrisy on this issue than the fact that their guy just Orwelled the word "unilateral."
This is supposedly not unilateral because Obama got a signed permission slip from the U.N. and then decided to go green by not making our own Congress waste any paper in drafting one of their own.
In other words, Obama hasn't acted unilaterally in the eyes of his fellow citizens of the world, just the Americans who elected and pay him to put them first.
Why is this different from how Bush handled Iraq? This can be the part of the post where liberals can check out and affirm their ignorance at the Firedoglake post linked above.
Is Gadaffi a POS? Hell yes he is! However, our government is not responsible for addressing ALL of the sphincter vomit of the world. It's job is to be responsible for just the sphincter vomit that poses a threat to us.
If that's not going to be the rule of thumb then the guy who breaks it has explaining to do....preferably before he goes on his next vacation.Add a comment
There's all this talk (here) about how Biden once said he would lead the charge to impeach presidents, like Obama if he were George W. Bush, over military attacks launched without congressional approval, like Libya if it were Iraq...so I wondered how the Biden-lead campaign to impeach his president would go...
What Trump is doing
Is giving us permission
To ask the question.
-From someone known as Haiku Guy, a commenter at Da TechGuy's Blog.
Like Da Techguy, I'm on record as not being a birther, but it's fascinating that we're going on into the third year of Obama's presidency and not only has the issue not died, but now a C-list celebrity like Donald Trump is starting to chip the fringe off of it...
Where does Donald get off making such demands about birth certificates?!? I know where...look at that combover, if anyone deserves to issue demands of honesty from others it should certainly be from the guy who wears it on his skull.
Bottom line, it's a fair question, especially since the left has been acting like such asses about the whole thing. Yeah the birthers are obnoxious too, but liberals could easily make fools of them by showing the damn piece of paper already.
By the way, is it just me or does anyone else think that Trump is only running for president so it can be the theme of the next season of The Apprentice?
Wouldn't it be hilarious if Donald Trump was our 45th president? They could broadcast Obama's concession call to him live, and the whole world could hear the Donald accept it...
Trump: Barack, you were the project manager for this assignment we call America, you failed to provide a clear vision, you failed to lead, you trashed your team in front of the competition, and when they needed you the most YOU WENT GOLFING.
Obama: Mr. Trump if...if...if you inherited this mess from George-
Trump: You went over budget to the tune of trillions. The world thinks you're such a joke the country just asked ME to succeed you!
Obama: -W....W. Bush you would see that this job didn't...uhh...support my ego in the way I thought it-
Trump: SOMEBODY SHUT OFF THIS GUYS TELEPROMPTER! I'm tired of you putting divots on my golf courses, I'm of tired your wife telling me I can't have a cheese steak sandwich, and Mr. Obama, frankly, the entire country is tired of you.
I'm suddenly very close to endorsing Donald Trump for president...just kidding...maybe...Add a comment
