Mike Pence Takes NBC’s David Gregory to School

Posted by iusbvision on February 21, 2010

I like Mike Pence, not only because he walks the walk, but he walked it when it wasn’t considered cool. There are so few politicians who say when they mean and mean what they say.

With that said, Mike Pence goes out of his way to be a very nice guy. He is sometimes a bit too charitable.

Today Pence out boxed the royally biased David Gregory. I am just going to tell it like it is, David Gregory is in the tank for the Democrats and always has been as he routinely frames questions and rhetoric for the partisan set up or hit. Anyone who deals with David Gregory should be prepared for this, and today Mike Pence was.

So if you like the Tea Party, which several pools say that the majority of Americans do, your “Anti-government”. That is the same word that they used to describe Tim McVeigh and that is no accident.

Yet when Bill Ayers, who ghost authored one of Obama’s books, was his employer and helped launch his political career, and Ayers wife Bernadine Dohrn, are treated as the darlings of leftist academia, the term “anti-government” is never applied to them, even though they actually attempted the violent overthrow of the United States government and install a communist one.

The Tea Party is no more “anti-government”, than the average schmo who voted for Obama is a hardcore socialist/corporatist. The Tea Party people and those who sympathise with that movement want government that lives within its means, is smarter, small, less intrusive, less corrupt, behaves as if the Constitution matters, and isn’t such a burden that it is chasing wealth and industry out of the country as it is now.

The Orwellian manipulation of the meaning of words and rhetoric is a powerful tool that the far left has learned to abuse well. When we were reading 1984, they were taking notes. We need to be bold and colorful and in their face when we see it.

Dick Armey at CPAC: The left would damage our economy and institutions to get control of them

Posted by iusbvision on February 21, 2010

…And for many progressives who are statists bent on social engineering and elitism this is very true. This would include most leftist academics and many in the leadership of the inner beltway of the Democratic Party, and some progressive Republicans. They are convinced that freedom isn’t “fair”, they are our betters, that can do better and all we have to do is follow them. Every generation has people who think this way, they never learn. They are the reason for the phrase “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance”

If you wish to unbderstand what the statist progressive is willing to sacrifice in the name of central control, watch this video.

Which brings us to what has become known as “Armey’s Axiom”: There is nothing so arrogant as a self-righteous “income redistributor.”

By the way, when he mentioned “10,000 of us that showed up on September 12th”  THIS is what he was referring to.

BRILLIANT MUST SEE VIDEO: George Will at CPAC

Posted by iusbvision on February 21, 2010

If you are anywhere on the fence between leftism and traditionalism this is the moment that will set your trajectory forever.

Funny, entertaining and more valuable than a semester of macro-economics training in 30 minutes.

By the way, when George Will talks about the failure of the New Deal he isn’t kidding 1, 2, 3. Non farm unemployment never dropped below the 20% margin during the New Deal. No one can honestly call that a success buy any stretch.

FUNNY: Ann Coulter at CPAC 2010

Posted by iusbvision on February 21, 2010

Funny and with a point. Vintage Coulter.

After hearing the left call everyone at the Tea Parties ‘racist’ –  the last time I heard so much race bating invective is when I sat in my usual front row pew of the United Trinity Church in Chicago – ouch :-)

AWESOME – Glenn Beck Keynote at CPAC – Blasts Republican Establishment

Posted by iusbvision on February 21, 2010

I love how Glenn always incorporates a history lesson into almost everything he does. He teaches you history, policy and economics and you don’t even realize it because you are having such a good time.

Glenn Beck is now the second most popular talk personality in the country.
