Watcher’s Council Nominations – Peace In Our Time Edition

Ah, Thanksgiving..or more accurately this year, an interesting occurrence called Thanksnukkah, as Thanksgiving and Hannukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights and miracles overlap in a rare convergence that won’t happen again for some 70,000 years or so, thanks to Judaism’s lunar calender. The culinary possibilities are endless…latkes with pumpkin fillings, you name it. But for […]

WE MUST POLICE the WORLD: BILL KRISTOL. SO WHAT’S THAT going to GET US? LOSS of LIBERTY!

William Kristol wrote an essay in his magazine, the Weekly Standard.  It is well written and worthy of comment. Kristol’s thesis is that when we renounced the world badge and beat, we ended up with 9/11.  But Kristol confuses the Cold War with the post-war era.  I certainly agree with him that we were too […]

Dem Senator: Discretionary Spending Is Not Out Of Control. McConnell: Taxpayers Are Funding Moroccan Pottery Classes

The Weekly Standard’s Daniel Halper noticed Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) saying on the Senate floor that “I am not going to keep cutting the discretionary budget, which, by the way, is not out of control, despite what you hear on Fox News . . . .” It’s rather amazing that Democrats are so blind to our spending […]

Shocking Employment Report – For Every Job Added, 10 Removed From Workforce

  This is the most disturbing report I have seen since Obama took office. And believe me, there have been many! The sudden and unexpected drop in the unemployment numbers to 7.8% have economists scratching their heads. Especially when you consider that for every job “created”, the Obama Administration removes 10 from the workforce. According […]

WHAT CONSERVATIVES ARE SAYING: “A Concerted Effort to Infuse a Grassroots Vibe into the Campaign”

Weekly Standard: A First Reaction to the Ryan Pick “One of the first political events I vaguely remember (I was eight years old) is listening on the radio to John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural Address.

WHO/WHAT is KEEPING CONDI RICE in the VP HUNT? I think it is very POSSIBLE – if INDEPENDENTS like her!

CAN WE TRADE DONALD TRUMP FOR THIS GUY? WE’LL WAIVE THE NATIVE BORN CLAUSE…

Here’s an interesting Weekly Standardish take on the leader of the True Finns party, Timo Soini.  Soini’s party may get the most votes and seats in the Finnish parliament in Sunday’s election! Soini sounds like a pretty solid conservative.  He’s clearly euroskeptic.  He compares the EU to their former imperialist neighbor, the (Thank God!) former […]

THIS IN THE WEEKLY STANDARD? I DON’T BELIEVE IT!

This article in the Weekly Standard by Matthew Continetti made me wonder what is happening to conservatism today.  Breaking up big banks and adding regulations is conservative?  Here’s some highlights: Over the last week, however, Paul Krugman has written two columns saying the size of the banks is irrelevant; what matters are the rules the […]
