H/T to Stacy on the Right for alerting me to this great video which dissects the crime stats which are being used to lie to us about the society in which we live. Remember, there are lies, damn lies and statistics, and politicians will always use statistics to drive their own agendas. Be sure you know the truth.
Bill Whittle gives a forward looking discussion shortly after the election on where we need to go next. His view, and mine, is that we need to engage as a cultural movement so the political victories will take care of themselves. We must engage on the cultural battleground or we will continue to lose the political fights as well. Make no mistake though, the war is a cultural one, in which the political fights are mere skirmishes. Get your game face on. #War
Right now, during these fiscal cliff debates,this is what keeps coming to mind, the “Ramming Speed” sequence from Ben Hur. In the bowels of a Roman warship the masters attempt to break the slaves’ will by increasing the speed of the ship from Battle Speed, to Attack Speed, and finally to Ramming Speed. Likewise, the politicians of today are trying to break us, by speeding us to a fiscal cliff of their own making. However they will also learn that like, Ben Hur, no matter what their actions we will not be broken.
Happy New Year!

Like Gandalf, we too are engaged in an epic battle for our beliefs and our country against powerful forces. Conservatives won a great victory last night against the Speaker, but the fight is not over.
Perhaps we too are at our own turn of the tide. Even so, the battle will be fierce. We are being attacked on multiple fronts. Make sure you are ready.
University of Mobile version of the traditional Christmas Carol. Merry Christmas.
Lee Stranahan interviews Clint about the attack at the AFP tent. This gentleman was attacked for merely associating with AFP at the rally and selling his hotdogs to conservatives in an act of free market commerce. For this he must be punished. It sounds like his attackers were not union members, but Black Bloc members who are attempting to seed unrest and violence and in the process bring down capitalism.
A fantastic discussion of history, the electorate and the future of Americanism.
The end is nigh, or is it? NRO Founding Editor Jonah Goldberg and National Review Editor-at-Large John O’Sullivan discuss the implications of Obama’s reelection. Was there a shift in the American electorate, or did Romney simply run a poor campaign and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory? Are ethnic and racial politics entering a new phase of increased balkanization? Find out on this Uncommon Knowledge as Peter Robinson reports from sea at the National Review post-election cruise. via PJTV
Some conservatives want to allow the country to fall off the fiscal cliff. Others want to give Obama the tax hikes he demands. Trifecta wonders whether the real solution to out of control federal entitlement spending is to sit back and allow the nation to hit the debt ceiling. via PJTV
What do you think?
Jimmy Stewart on Johnny Carson reading a poem about his dog Beau. How far we have come as a culture. It is this type of culture that elected Reagan. It is no wonder our current culture would not even support Romney. If we do not find ways of changing the culture there is no lasting political victory possible.
