Obama and ACORN

Posted: 31st December 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

According to the Big Government blog, Obama and ACORN have a pretty cozy relationship (as well all knew already).  The ACORN CEO had a nice little visit to the White House in September (just before the ACORN video scandals came out). That’s funny, because back when the scandals broke, Obama attempted to act like he [...]

Obama’s Strategy of Being Likeable isn’t Working

Posted: 30th December 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in National Security / Foreign Affairs

According to Politico, Dick Cheney is again striking out at Obama for his weakness on national security.  I’ve said before that I don’t know if I necessarily agree with former Presidents (or VP’s too I guess) commenting on a current President, but I will admit that Cheney is right. Basically Cheney is railing against the [...]

Update on Black Panther Voter Intimidation

Posted: 29th December 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

A little while back I re-visited the issue of members of the Black Panther party intimidating and threatening voters at a polling place in Philadelphia in 2008. You can see that here:  The Right of a Nation – post 12/16/2009 There I discussed the fact that obviously something fishy was going on, as the Justice [...]

Homeland Security should be cheap!

Posted: 28th December 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in National Security / Foreign Affairs

Because according to Janet Napolitano, it consists of hoping that citizens (not even necessarily American ones!) decide to be heroes and stop acts of terrorism! I was sitting in the doctor’s office with my wife and saw these classic comments from Napolitano on CNN: “What we are focused on is making sure that the air [...]

Disagreement with Gov’t is not American and is not based on facts

Posted: 27th December 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

Well, my wife and I missed church this morning and happened upon NBC’s “Meet the Press” while flipping channels. Among the guests today were Mayor Bloomberg, Newt Gingrich, and NBC’s Andrea Mitchell.  I’ll admit I’m not familiar with her, but she had a very fancy title of something similar to “Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent.” I [...]

Gigantic Bills in Congress

Posted: 23rd December 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

According to a new Zogby poll (which I can’t find a link to for some reason), more than 80% of Americans believe that Congress creates huge, 1,000+ long bills for a specific reason – to sneak in other projects and to attempt to confuse the American people. The reason they believe this is BECAUSE IT [...]

Here’s another situation which is of great importance to our country and the ideals of liberty, freedom, etc. that it is based on, and yet has not seen a whole lot of national media attention. It all goes back to Election Day 2008 in Philadelphia where a few members of the Black Panther Party were [...]

A look back – Gun confiscation after Hurricane Katrina

Posted: 14th December 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in 2nd Amendment

also check here for another update to this story Let’s take a look back at some events that occurred after Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana back in August of 2005. Everyone remembers the total devastation that the hurricane caused in New Orleans, as well as the total lawlessness that occurred afterward.  In response to that, the [...]

Update on abortion amendment in Health care bill

Posted: 8th December 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in Abortion, Health Care

According to the Washington Post, the amendment that I previously spoke of here was narrowly rejected in the Senate. Like previously mentioned, this will most likely cost the support of Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) and brings up the question of whether or not the health care bill itself will pass.
