Az Shooter Not the First of Its Kind

↳ Posted on January 15th, 2011 by Ben Spera

The only other sitting Congressman to be murdered in the line of duty was Rep. Leo Ryan (D), killed by crazy socialist Jim Jones and his followers in 1978. Jones was also a dedicated follower of the Communist Manifesto and Karl Marx, Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler. Details all eerily similar to those discovered of the Arizona shooting suspect.  As pointed out by @CJF_Fontenot_1, they also both murdered women & children indiscriminately. Read more…

What the Az Shooting Has Taught Us

↳ Posted on January 10th, 2011 by Ben Spera

The January 8th shooting in Tucson, Arizona was a tragic enough event in itself, but many of us were not prepared for what followed. Political opportunists, with no regard for the gravity of such a deplorable act, never skipped a beat- immediately blitzing opponents with accusations and attempts to pin liability on conservative pundits with no affiliation with the gunman whatsoever.

Herman Cain Supported 2008 Bank Bailout

Posted on May 23rd, 2011 by Ben Spera

I have to admit, even I got caught up in the excitement over GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain. He is a strong candidate and has given a lot of attention to basic conservative principles so far. One flag that has concerned me is his support of the 2008 Troubled Asset Relief Program or TARP. This program is more commonly known as the 2008 bank bailouts. This was first referred to in an article by Robert Costa on the National Review. Costa quotes Cain as “chiding the “free-market purists” who criticized the legislation. “Wake up people!” he wrote. “Owning a part of the major banks in America is not a bad thing. We could make a profit while solving a problem.” Read more…
