Hey Look, Yet Another Video of Mitt Romney Flip-Flopping and Lying

Obama Likens Himself To Gandhi And Nelson Mandela

We're dealing with a genius here. From Real Clear Politics:
"The civil rights movement was hard. Winning the vote for women was hard. Making sure that workers had some basic protections was hard," President Obama said at a fundraiser while talking about how difficult it is to bring about "change" in politics.

"Around the world, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, what they did was hard. It takes time. It takes more than a single term. It takes more than a single president. It takes more than a single individual," Obama said.

"What it takes is ordinary citizens who keep believe, who are committed to fighting and pushing and inching this country closer and closer to our highest ideals. And I said in 2008, 'that I am not a perfect man and I will not be a perfect president.' But I promised you, but I promised you, I promised you back then that I would always tell you what I believe. I would always tell you where I stood," he also said at a fundraiser in NYC.

Ted Nugent Endorses Romney

Perhaps the most important endorsement during the entire 2012 Republican race has just occurred. If analysts thought Kid Rock helped my man Mitt Romney win Michigan, then this endorsement might bring him all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Ladies and gentlemen, do you have cat scratch fever?

Thats right, Ted Nugent endorsed Mr. Romney yesterday afternoon on his twitter feed:

"after a long heart&soul conversation with MittRomney today I concluded this goodman will represent we the people & I endorsed him"

This isn't exactly President Bush, but Nugent definitely appeals to a strong segment of voters in this nation, especially those who cling to their religion and guns (especially the guns) and I'm looking forward to hearing some Mitt-scratch fever lyrics on the campaign trail.

What say you?

P.S. - If Ted Nugent is behind Romney, then how can you be against him? Just remember he knows how to use his guns, and that standing against Ted is standing with radical liberal elites... Just sayin'

Romney Leads in Washington

HT: Politico

The Michigan bounce is real. Just forty-eight hours after the nation woke up to Mitt Romney's major victory in Michigan and Santorum's attempt to claim he still won, even though he didn't, Washington Republicans have been swept up by Mittmentum - what was an eleven point deficit yesterday, is now him leading by five.

Public Policy Polling:

Romney - 37%.
Santorum - 32%.
Ron Paul - 16%.
Gingrich - 13%.

Both Romney and Paul are campaigning in the state today in hopes of gaining the straw poll votes of an estimated 25,000-40,000 Republicans tomorrow afternoon, which will be a state record for caucus turnout. However, Romney's late momentum will probably seal the deal for his campaign and a good chunk of the 43 delegates at stake.

Only time will tell, but I'm confident of Romney's forth consecutive victory in the Republican race in Washington tomorrow afternoon.

The Return of Baseball

It's the most wonderful time of the year: baseball is back.

After months of freezing cold, constant boredness and the heart-break of another failed Jets' season, springtime is once again bringing back the rejuvenation of baseball into our homes, fields and minds.

The pre-season brought many changes as well: Albert Pujols to the Angels, Prince Fielder to Detroit, Bobby Valentine hired to manage the Redsox and the Marlins signing Jose Reyes from the NY Mets. Plus, the post-season will now have an additional round of wild card playoffs, which should be quite interesting to see in action.

Sadly, my Braves front office made no major decisions over the winter. Our roster matches 2011 too perfectly in my opinion, although that doesn't hurt us considering we were just one game from being playoff bound, rather then the eventual World Series champions, St. Louis.

I'm hopeful our 2012 club, anchored by Chipper Jones, Brian McCann and Craig Kimbrel will bring Atlanta back to the playoffs, but regardless of outcome, I sure am glad the boys of summer are once again taking the field, and soon center-stage on my television, computer and life.

My Prediction for the Secret Obama Tapes

With the conservative world still mourning Andrew Breitbart, one of his confidantes stated yesterday that Breitbart's plan of releasing tapes of a young Barack Obama would go on. As he told Sean Hannity last night, the tapes will be released in a week to ten days.

So what's going to be on these tapes?

I had a chance to peruse the HotAir comments and some common themes keep surfacing:

- Radical racial rhetoric.
- Radical Marxist rhetoric.
- Film of Obama with Bill Ayers or Bernie Dohrn.
- Film of Obama during his 1980s trip to Pakistan.

While any of these are certainly possible, the question has to come up. How much personal information about Obama's life was videotaped in the 1980s? Sure, some of his friends may have viedeotaped a young idealist-- but those tapes would likely not be available, even today.

Unfortunately for the righty blogs, including our own, I don't think there will be anything spectacular. Likely it's a lefty professor spouting some Marxist nonsense and a 22-year old Obama looking on in a crowd of 50-500, nodding his head. Or maybe it's him attending a liberation theology church. I just don't see where the major keystone comes in here.

Think about what Obama has stated he's done:

- Spent 20 years in Reverend Wright's church
- Used cocaine
- Spent time with Marxist students and professors

What beyond this would truly be so shocking?

Unless....

Barack Obama was a Young Republican!!!!!! /s

None Dare Call It…

In 1777 the British thought they had finally hit upon a strategy to crush the rebellion.  They would divide the colonies.  General John Burgoyne had presented a bold plan to the government in London.  He proposed to invade New England from Canada marching down the Hudson River Valley.  There British troops moving up from New Jersey and New York under the command of General Howe would join Burgoyne and effectively cut the colonies in  two demoralizing the rebels and discouraging the French who were considering recognizing the independence of America.
In early summer Burgoyne set off with a professional army of over 7,000 men and many thousands of Indian allies.  In a declaration Burgoyne threatened to unleash his Indian allies to pillage the Americans.  When numerous atrocities were committed the vast majority of Americans in the path of the invading army resolved to join the rebellion thus swelling the troops and supplies of the Americans.
As the British proceeded south the resistance constantly stiffened and the swarm of snipers buzzed about the invaders like mosquitos snipping at their heels over and over.  Burgoyne ignored these attacks and continued his advance to the south in a grand style.  Meanwhile, miles to the south General Howe made a decision that would have a fateful consequence.   Instead of marching to meet Burgoyne as he was supposed to do he decided to attack Philadelphia, the Rebel capital.  Not aware of the change of plans Burgoyne continued to march south unconcerned that his supply lines were becoming longer and less secure since he thought he would receive everything he needed as soon as the reinforcements arrived.
Soon American ambushes began to defeat or capture any British forces sent out from the main body to forage or scout.  The Americans began to burn and destroy all supplies, crops, and pasture in front of the British.  Day by day General Burgoyne should have begun to realize he was marching into a trap.  Finally in the first week of October 1777 the American Continental Army confronted the British north of Albany near the town of Saratoga.  Ever the flamboyant firebrand Burgoyne though now surrounded and outnumbered trusted to his professional troops to overwhelm and defeat the citizen soldiers of the American Army.  Without hesitation Burgoyne took the offensive and was soon smashing his way through the poorly trained militias that made up a major portion of the American Army.  He seemed about to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat when one of America’s greatest heroes intervened.
When the British were about to break through General Benedict Arnold rallied his troops and against the orders of his commanding officer led a valiant counterattack which changed the course of the day and set the stage for the eventual surrender of the entire British army.  This ultimately led to the recognition of America by France.  And this led to the French fleet and army being present at Yorktown for the final victory which won the war.
General Arnold was grievously wounded at the battle of Saratoga and would never completely recover his health.  In the reports of the battle the American commanding general Horatio Gates did not mention Arnold’s heroic deeds and took all the credit for the victory himself.
This slight festered in the heart of Arnold, and is believed to be the reason why he eventually betrayed the cause he had sworn to defend and earned a name forever synonymous with traitor in American History.
In 1777 a foreign army tried to divide America.  The assault was met by minute men rushing from all directions leaving the comfort of their homes to sacrifice their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to save their home land.  Today the forces of social welfare use class warfare to divide and conquer.  Now is the time for all good men to come to the aide of their country!  Now is the time for loyalty and patriotism not the time to be timid in the face of forces dedicated to the transformation of our Republic.
Exactly what is treason?  It is the offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance: the betrayal of a trust.
Benedict Arnold did that by trying to surrender his command: the fortress at West Point.  He betrayed his trust and sought to bring about the defeat of his nation. 
What should we call leaders who act against the interest of the nation?  Who fight endless wars for peace that do not enhance our security or protect our interest?  What should we call leaders who sacrifice our energy independence to a false religion of manmade global warming and squander our treasure pouring it into ideologically driven fringe technologies that fail time and time again?  What should we call leaders who embrace our enemies and offend our friends?  What should we call leaders who have cast off all fiscal restraint and are spending us and our great grandchildren into oblivion?  What do we call leaders who ignore the limitations of the Constitution, expand the police and detention powers of the military, and actively work to put law abiding citizens under constant surveillance?
Historians always say that hindsight is 20/20 and looking back we can see that General Arnold believed he had a reason or at least an excuse for his treason.
Seeing as clearly in the present is always a more challenging assignment; however, it is our responsibility to act as the stewards of the heritage we have received.  And as the current stewards of America’s precious heritage of limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom it is our duty to evaluate those who are sailing the ship of state over Niagara without even a barrel and ask ourselves why are they doing this?  Why are those sworn to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States doing everything conceivable to undermine the Republic and institute a centrally-planned collectivist democracy in its place?
The hidden secrets of the heart are impossible to discern.  None of us can ever truly know the unspoken motives of another.  Therefore we must base our interpretations of motive upon actions.  We watch the bravest of the brave fight and die in wars already surrendered.   We watch endless talk about the debt as the debt is constantly increased.  We watch as thousands of new regulations are added every day binding the free citizens of America in a totalitarian nightmare of control.  Though none dare call it by its real name, none dare point the finger of accusation for fear of being called a bigot, a racist, or intolerant, is it time to use the word none dare speak: treason?
As Thomas Paine once said, “THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.”

Honoring Breitbart


There is a sadness that is permeating the people on the right today.  A fearless warrior has left us today.  A man who was willing to shine a bright light on the hypocrisy that surrounds our politics today.  He was fearless.  He was tenacious.  He also was a son, a brother, a son-in-law, a husband, and a father.  His eldest child is just 12 years old.

I have been reading the tributes to him around the blogosphere.  Some made by people who only knew of him.  Others by people who met him.  And some who could rightly call him a friend.  They are very touching.  Some surprises are there as well.  Media Matters handled it with dignity:
Media Matters has a long history with Andrew Breitbart. We've disagreed more than we've found common ground, but there was never any question of Andrew's passion for and commitment to what he believed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family today.
Of course there are those on the left that have not.  The twitter feeds will make your hair curl and frankly ashamed.  They are all too willing --eager really -- to bring up Breitbart's response after the passing of liberal lion Ted Kennedy, which was not his best moment, to justify their own hate filled over the top glee at the death of a man who was too young to die.

We also have the people on the right who have already are out with the conspiracy theories that he was murdered.  Some of the accused are George Soros, President Obama, The CIA (apparently they invented a some sort of dart that gives people heart attacks without leaving a trace except a red spot where the dart hits them), and lest we forget Bill Ayers.

What is being lost in all of this is his family.  He has four young children who are dealing with the loss of their beloved daddy.  From all the accounts I have ever heard from people who really knew him, he was a very happily married man and a doting father.  This is a devastating loss for them.

There will be an autopsy.  His father in law has made a public statement that he had a history of heart problems.  I personally knew two people who died very young from natural causes.  Both under the age of 40.  Someone I have known since elementary school has heart problems so severe he can longer work.  These issues started in his late 20's.  These things do happen to young people.

Andrew Breitbart tried to shine a bright light on the truth.  He firmly believed in it.  To honor his memory we owe him and his family some time to process this loss.  To respect the fact that he has young children.  There will be plenty of time after the coroners determine the true cause of death to talk about what happened.  Today should be about honoring a man who stood up for what he believed in.  Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, as human beings, we owe his family the time to mourn their loss with dignity and respect.   Above all, we owe Breitbart the truth, not theories that have no basis in fact.

I read somewhere today that he was a devout atheist.  I don't know if that is true or not.  But in case it is, Andrew, may your spirit live on in the hearts and minds of your children.  There are foremost in my thoughts today.

Onward to Washington

Before we jump aboard the Super Tuesday express and literally explode our minds with following 10 states at once, let's slow down and remember the good Republican electorate of Washington has their voice heard on Saturday, and that 43 delegates are up grabs in the first north-west state to vote.

The last poll on the state of the race in Washington was taken nine days ago by Public Policy Polling, which showed Santorum with a commanding eleven point lead over Romney. However, with Romney rocketing to a 16 point lead in Rasmussen's latest national poll released this morning, it's very likely they race is much closer in Washington today.

GOP officials are expecting over 25,000 voters to attend local caucuses this weekend to take part in a non-binding straw poll and the beginning of the process of electing delegates to the convention. With three of four candidates planning to campaign in the state Friday, things could get interesting.

We have no historical basis for what may occur this time, as Romney dropped out of the race just two days before the 2008 caucuses, but Ron Paul was able to grab 21% of the vote and 5 delegates against McCain and Huckabee, so that is something to consider when looking at Saturday's vote.

I don't know who will win Washington's Republican caucuses Saturday, but it will be interesting never-the-less to follow this race to its quick conclusion.

Breaking: Philadelphia International Airport Closed

Fox is reporting the airport is closed due to "police activity."

An airport spokesperson told FOX 29 at 11:43 a.m. that the airport is closed, it's a police matter, and police are handling the situation.

But FOX 29's Sean Tobin reported from the scene that planes were taking off again by 11:52 a.m.

There are multiple unconfirmed reports on Twitter from people claiming to be passengers on planes at PHL that a Jeep was being driven on the runway, but that vehicle has been stopped.

Santorum's Organization Problems

With attention shifting to Super Tuesday after Mitt Romney's two big victories last night, the often troubling issue of Rick Santorum's organizational issues are creeping once again into the limelight.

We begin with Virginia, where as everyone knows only Romney and Paul were capable enough to qualify for the ballot, while Perry infamously filed suit because he could not get 10,000 signatures because they changed the rules, or something like that. Santorum didn't come close to the required number, and now 49 delegates are heading to Romney.

Then we head off to Tennessee, where Santorum's campaign managed to find absolutely no-one to become an official delegate in the primary's interesting way of awarding delegates. In Tennessee - delegates aren't awarded by who wins the state or congressional districts, but by which 41 personal delegates are elected to go to the state convention (14 at-large, 27 congressional).

And now Ohio, where the Santorum and Romney campaigns will spend most of the next week for, however, due to Santorum's campaign once again failing to run cohesively, they failed to field nine delegates in three districts, meaning he will gain nothing, even if the voters back him in those three districts.

With almost 500 delegates up for grabs on Super Tuesday, Santorum's campaign will be unable to compete for almost 20% of them off the bat, because of his campaign's disorganization, and down right amatuerish ground work. Not a confidence builder when our opponent in November has last time's organization, and around one billion dollars to play around with this time.

What say you?

P.S. - Santorum could still technically win delegates in Tennessee, but his voters will have to vote uncommitted delegates, who can go to anyone they bother, or delegates of another candidate in.... neither of which guarantee he receives one elected delegate from Super Tuesday.

Arizona & Michigan Last Thoughts

Before I shut down the lap top for some much needed rest (for me as well), here are some final thoughts on tonight's primary battles in Arizona and Michigan, which were both won by Mitt Romney.

1. If the current vote totals from Arizona hold up, Romney will have won the state by both more votes, and by a bigger percentage then Senator John McCain did in 2008. Quite the political coup if I say so.

2. Romney is in position to win Michigan by forty thousand more votes then he did in 2008, when not even McCain seriously challenged him in his home state, while his percentage of vote is also a couple points better as well, even though more Democrats crossed over to influence the vote then last time.

3. The Associated Press now has Romney at 157 delegates to Santorum's 77, while Gingrich, and Paul linger far behind. The key point is that Mr. Romney is 11% of the way to securing the nomination and with him the favorite to win over half of next week's primaries, that margin is going to getter better as time goes on.

What say you?

Romney Wins Michigan

After weeks of intense fighting between the two leaders, Mitt Romney has won the Michigan GOP Primary with nearly 85% of precincts reporting. He was thought to be on the decline as Santorum's campaign was thought to be gaining 'momentum' over the weekend, but he is on track to win by four, maybe five points.

With 84% of precincts reporting (via Fox):

Romney - 346,840 (41%)
Santorum - 317,100 (38%)
Ron Paul - 97,961 (12%)
Gingrich - 55,655 (7%)

Mr. Romney just out did his 2008 performance of 338,000 votes, even though only 810,000 votes have been counted, which is nearly 60,000 less then ballots cast overall last time around. So, folks might obsess over Santorum's strong showing, but Romney has both improved his vote totals, percentage, and strength over the last primary.

Not bad for some at risk of losing his native state, eh?

Add this to his victory in Arizona, and tonight is a very good night for Romney, in regards to two major victories, and claiming over 75% of delegates when all votes are counted.

UPDATE (8:00 PM)

Polls are closing across parts of Michigan right now. Exit polls show 10% of primary voters today were Democrats, so make of that what you will.

--Original Article--

The final votes in today's much anticipated Michigan Republican primary are being cast as precints slowly start to close. The main candidates have been criss-crossing the lower peninsula in hopes of gaining last minute votes, but when the results start rolling in, none of that will have mattered.

Pundit Press will be covering the Michigan results until someone wins, and if pre-primary polls are accurate that could mean until late tonight, as voters were split right down the middle about these two candidates as late as Public Policy Polling's last survey yesterday afternoon.

Stay tuned.

About that Claim of Going Broke at Georgetown


So we have this young woman, Sandra Fluke, lying testifying in front of a congressional hearing about the high costs of birth control; students are going broke.  One would think that someone that is smart enough to get into Georgetown law would be able to do what I did in less than a minute.  I googled the locations of Planned Parenthood that are close to the campus. Guess what?  There are four different locations less than 10 miles from campus.  


Oh and you know what else, Target sells generic brand birth control pills for $9 per month.  Let's see that is $108 per year if my math is correct; 9 x 12 yeah that equals 108.  I have no idea what PP charges for birth control but I can't imagine it is much different than Target.  I bet the average Hoya spends more than that on coffee every year.  


Since I live in the greater DC area I can tell you that they have a very aggressive free condom program here.  The reason being that Washington, DC has one of the highest rates of AIDS/HIV infection in the nation.  (Maybe having a lot of sex with local people may not be a good idea, just a thought). The website that tells you how and where you can get your free condoms is in seven different languages, too.  


Isn't it illegal to testify falsely in front of Congress?  I think that is called perjury, but what do I know?   I am not in Georgetown Law School.  Where do the dems find these people who are willing to lie so patently and openly?

Romney Wins Arizona

No surprise here: Pundit Press projects that Mitt Romney has won the Republican primary in Arizona. In the long run, however, this might not matter at all if Romney loses Michigan.

Michigan Republicans Vote

It's finally here.
Photograph by The Detroit News
After weeks of fierce campaigning between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in the Wolverine State, voters are heading to the polls as I write this. They are not only awarding delegates tonight, but quite possibly sacred momentum to the eventual victor, as the candidates sprint through 13 contests in one week.

So what should you look out for?

1. Delegates - Michigan awards their 30 delegates proportionally, so the difference between winning, and losing will matter in the delegate race, especially since Romney's guaranteed 29 to start the night off from Arizona's winnter-take-all primary bout, which he leads by almost twenty points right now.

2. Democrats - Michigan is another of those open primary states, where anyone can vote in the GOP, or Democrat races, regardless of registration. And today that matters, because Democrats and unions are actively encouraging cross-over voting to sabotage Romney's small lead among Republicans, not to mention Santorum's robo-calls to Democrats attacking Romney for opposing the auto bailouts.

3. Voting - Almost 20% of all votes cast will have been absentees, or early votes, which Romney has worked hard on getting. Some estimate near 60% of those early ballots are for Romney, so if turnout falls below expectations, or if he performs equal to Santorum in votes cast today, he will comfortably win.

Most importantly, if you reside in Michigan and you're a Republican, please head out to the polls and vote!

What say you?

Predictions for Michigan Primary

So far I've gotten all of my predictions correct (at least on who would win, that is), including Iowa. So I feel the need to predict Michigan as well. As much as it pains me to do so, I think Mitt Romney will pull it out in a squeaker against Santorum, while Dr. Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich will come in a distant third and fourth, respectively. Here are the percentages I'm predicting:

Mitt Romney- 37.9%
Rick Santorum- 36.8%
Ron Paul- 10.2%
Newt Gingrich- 9.7%

Michigan: Santorum's Disgrace

Hundreds of thousands of Michiganders will be heading to the polls in a few hours to decide the hotly contested Republican Primary bout between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, but the last ditch plans Santorum has been implementing in the state should be the downfall of his candidacy.

According to Public Policy Polling, the race is in a statistical dead head right now that could go either way, but one interesting fact note should cause Republicans to pause: Romney leads among registered Republicans (43-38%), while Santorum picks up his small one-point lead among Democrats - who are behind him 47-10%.

Some might claim these are blue dogs, but there's no standing for that, because Santorum's campaign is currently running robo-calls to Democrat voters attacking Mitt Romney for opposing the auto bailout, while Democratic consultants are attempting to get their ranks to cross party lines tomorrow, and back Santorum to hurt Romney's chances...

Wow. And I thought this was the Republican primary.

Call Romney whatever you want, but when the going got tough - he went after his opponent's actual track records; he didn't attempt to bring voters from the opposing party into the fray and steal a win.

It's apparent who I support in the primary, and I'm not asking you to back my man, but please think about the actions of Santorum and whether their consistent with how Conservative Republicans are supposed to act. And remember, please vote and get all your friends too, this is important and every one should be involved.

SEALs Claim Box Office Victory

The nationwide release of Act of Valor resulted in the eight U.S. Navy SEAL's who acted their roles defeating the latest, and not so greatest, movies out of Hollywood and coming out victorious in both money per theatre ($8,054) and the weekend ($24,476,632).

Tyler Perry's Good Deeds was the closest competitor at just $15 million.

I have not seen the movie yet, but I've been rooting for its success ever since I learned of the role our heroic, and often under-valued SEAL's have in this, from what I've seen regular people say (not New York, or LA film snobs), exceptional war film. And the greatest thing is that they doubled the money spent making the film already...

Congratulations to the creators, actors and SEAL's who came together and brought us this film. I am hopeful this astonishing upset in the box office will lead to more pro-military films coming to cinema's nationwide, or at the least finally end the Hollywood legacy of anti-military ideological skits for good.

TJ Lane Poem

Accused shooter TJ Lane apparently wrote some pretty poor poetry before the rampage. Here's a portion found on his facebook:

"I'm on the lamb but I ain't no sheep. I am Death. And you have always been the sod. So repulsive and so odd. You never even deserved the presence of God, and yet, I am here. Around your cradle I plod. Came on foot, without shod. How improper, how rude. However, they shall not mind the mud on my feet if there is blood on your sheet. Now! Feel death, not just mocking you. Not just stalking you but inside of you. Wriggle and writhe. Feel smaller beneath my might. Seizure in the Pestilence that is my scythe. Die, all of you."
TJ Lane allegedly had a Twitter account that has been pulled due to the shooting. The alleged shooter also had a facebook account where he apparently put up this photoHis arrest photo can be seen here. And his yearbook picture.

Interview with Conservative Refocus

Pundit Press is proud to present interview number 53 in our ongoing series. Today we're interviewing Barry and Kim, the editors of the political site Conservative Refocus. We thank them for their time and participation.

1. When and why did you start Conservative Refocus?

Barry:

In mid-2009, I began noticing something I had never seen before--ever--in my America. It was creeping into the mindsets of myriad business associates, some members of the media, and most of the people that I ran into in day-to-day life. It was actual fear, and it was not from a foreign attacker, not even so much towards the economy, but rather it was a both new and tangible fear of our Federal Government and what it was trying to accomplish. Not only that, only a relative few, at the time, within the media and certain websites were speaking directly to these fears. These individuals were standing alone in a storm, and they needed every bit of help they could get. I felt wrong in knowing I could help out in my own way, and yet was doing nothing beyond noticing and taking part in the angst as it continually unfolded.

I slowly began to smolder in anger at what was happening both all around us and to us, as Americans, and started speaking out on Facebook. Many friends began expressing an opinion that I should create a forum, and another good friend, Kim Stallings, who is a former academian and author of several well-known college texts, holding a Masters in English with a concentration in argumentation, offered to help create a site, serving as editor and webmaster, while I would be the writer. I can remember her asking, “what should we call it?” and while busy working on a business problem, I flippantly suggested Refocus. She asked, “Is that it?” I replied well…..I don’t know, “Conservative Refocus,” and that’s how the site was born.

Kim:

In February 2009, I lost my job due to the troubled economy...and began a tremendous journey of transformation, realization, and true "self" education. Barry was largely my "teacher" during this time--helping me to sort through my experiences and understand how what this country was going through under the Obama administration was connected. During our conversations, I recognized in Barry someone who possessed a breadth and depth of historical knowledge, sharp critical thinking skills, a commitment to keeping up with current events, and an extraordinary passion for and ability to communicate; he was--I knew--a voice that needed to be heard. So I encouraged him to put his voice "out there"...lending my web skills, editorial skills, graphics skills,marketing skills, etc...and Conservative Refocus was born in August of 2009. Barry was meant to join the conversation and MOVE it in a particular direction--and he has DONE that. To educate. To inspire. When we started the site, I "knew" on some level it was going to be important and successful, but I think we're both constantly amazed at how far we've come in such a short amount of time...and we have only just begun.

2. What's the best part about running your site?

Barry:

Publishing an article and watching it take-off is very satisfying, to me. But the even greater part is being able to add a slightly different voice to the conversation, one that is often steeped in analytical sarcasm, sometimes funny and entertaining, but always teaching and informing about what true Conservatism actually is, or how we should interpret a piece of news. The other part in running the news,along with the ariticles, is about finding out precisely what’s happening all over the world and displaying it, from the angle of understanding how this thing over 2,500 miles away could have an impact on our lives, in America. But an even more interesting part is the amount of international interest we have garnered. People everywhere are searching for answers, and we have many of those answers in our site, folded into the wisdom of the US Constitution, but displayed in a slightly different angle. We mock any and everyone in power, including many of our own within the Republican Party, if we feel they are straying from Conservative values. But first and foremost, we have fun. Finally, I have been contacted by a number of high-profile people, and many normal,every-day Americans who thank us for doing what we’re doing. Some of these folks are people that I had never dreamed of meeting, even nominally, but they contact us from the various articles that are written, which are often possessing an entirely different viewpoint, sometimes wicked, sometimes poignant, but always centered around the real truth. Not one week goes by where Kim doesn’t come to me or I go to her and say, “hey, guess who dropped us a note today?” I find that fascinating for a farm boy from Union County who ran off and joined the US navy and then bred himself into the Business world, a world which I love dearly, by the way.

Kim:

There are so many awesome things about working with Barry on CR. The constant education, working through ideas with Barry and watching as he analyzes and synthesizes what's truly going on in this country, seeing the response from our audience, watching the site continually grow and impact so many people. And, like Barry said, it's amazing to have people like former Governor of New York, George Pataki, Michael Reagan, even Newt Gingrich--just to name a few--reading and reaching out to us in one way or another. (Newt Gingrich recently publicly thanked Barry--after the SC primary--on his official Facebook site--along with about 50 other people--just after we published the article "An Unbeliever's Guide to the Establishment: To Question with Boldness.")

3. How is Romney weak in the general election? Does he have any redeeming features?

Barry:

Romneycare will be hard for Mitt to overcome in general, simply because Romney will lose one of the main selling points of Conservatism over Statism if he is selected to run against the Messiah. And by the way, this “language of the left” concerning criticizing Romney is B.S. that the establishment has many hard-core Conservatives eating up. Their stance on this is nothing but pie-in-the sky avoidance of some very serious issues that Romney will have to overcome in his past. I try to remind everyone that the Conservative media will not be accused of not vetting our candidate, as the mainstream media failed miserably at in Obama’s Democratic nomination. Redeeming issue? He has quite a few, and I would be far more comfortable with Romney than Obama, Mitt knows capitalism, he knows trade, and he has been a screaming success in business. But remember, these candidates always run to their base, in our case being the Conservative base of the Republcian party, and then they fall back to their normal positionings while governing. Romney would seem to fall somewhere around the center, at best, based upon his past, and that’s a concern. We must have someone who is thoroughly Conservative to solve these massive problems that we face, and wisdom will be operative in whomever we choose.

Kim:

I have serious reservations about Romney based on what we're learned about his past in our research. The mainstream media is not adequately reporting or focusing on these things--the goings-on with Bain Capital, for instance. His position on many issues has changed to suit his purposes at a given time. He's not the "Golden Ticket" that many people believe he is. Barry's October 2011 article, "A Cautionary Tale: The 2012 Obama/Romney Presidential Debate" paints a pretty realistic picture of what we might face should Romney win the GOP nomination.

4. Has President Obama been better or worse than what you feared?

Barry:

Far, far, worse than I ever could have imagined. Obama has become a caricature of himself, something that should soon come out as the year progresses.

Kim:

Obama is a nightmare. He has so severely damaged this country, damaged the People he was elected to serve. We are beaten down and SO divided--which is his plan as he follows Saul Alinsky's "Rules" to the letter. Four more years of Obama? I can't even begin to imagine the dark path that would lead us down.

5. What Republican do you wish ran this year?

Barry:

Well, I get misty-eyed when I think of how bad we need Ronald Reagan, right now, but I did kind of hope that SC Senator Jim Demint might run. He would have been formidable, I think. There are a number of others, Trump, might have been interesting, indeed, but he’s out; no way he plays now--far, far, too late, and he knows it. Just ignore him for the rest of this cycle is the best advice that I could give. But now, Trump, oh yeah, now there is a businessman who makes even Romney pause, even while he continually reminds us of how inter-galactically successful he is--looks like Gilligan on a dissolving raft with sharks circling. I mean, look, bragging, with regard to Romney and some few others, can often be thought of as the act of trying to convince someone of something that you're not even sure about yourself; get real, people.

Kim:

I'm with Barry on Ronald Reagan--such an amazing leader. But without Reagan, or his clone, the Conservative I support IS running--Newt Gingrich. He has such a breadth and depth of knowledge and experience--reasoned ideas for change that would repair the damage Obama has done. He is ALREADY presidential. I can't think of anyone else I would choose to enter the race.

6. Anything else you'd like to add?

Barry and Kim:

We really appreciate the opportunity to take part in this, and thanks so much.

Newspaper: "US to Announce Aerial Blockade on Syria"

As reported by Ynet:
The Pentagon is readying for the possibility of intervention in Syria, aiming to halt Syrian President Bashsar Assad's violent crackdown on protesters, the newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported Saturday, citing a US military offical.

According to the official, the intervention scenario calls for the establishment of a buffer zone on the Turkish border, in order to receive Syrian refugees. The Red Cross would then provide the civilians humanitarian aid, before NATO crews would arrive from Turkey and join the efforts.

The measure would pave the way for the US to declare an aerial blockade on Syria.

The intercession is to be modeled after NATO's efforts in Kosovo, which brought an end to the Serbian control of the region. NATO's plan of action included prolonged aerial shelling.

The US' diplomatic efforts have yet to yield an effective international resolution that would stop the bloodshed. More than 100 protesters have died over the weekend alone, human rights activists said.
