When one man attended the Million Vet March with a confederate flag, the crapdog media immediately elevated him to the face of the conservative movement. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee demanded that Sen. Ted Cruz and GOP congressmen denounce the “disgusting Tea Party” act. Ahem. Behold the face of the Democrats proudly waving his disgusting “Thanks Tea-Tards” […]

Michael Moore: GOP would charge Obama with treason if he shut down government

Michael Moore

Before we talk treason, it’s important to remember that Michael Moore declared Bradley Manning’s status an official “hero” the moment he pleaded guilty to leaking piles of classified documents to WikiLeaks. So, assuming that President Obama had the constitutional power to just shut down the government at will, would the GOP accuse him of treason? The real […]
