Texas Ranger Clint Peoples died 20 years ago and left an impressive legacy as one of the most prominent lawmen in Texas history.

Some of the Ranger memorabilia that he once owned goes on sale Dec. 9 at Heritage Auctions in Dallas. How about a gold-plated Thompson submachine gun? A Ranger badge crafted from a Mexican gold coin? Or a matched set of two elegant Smith & Wesson .357 revolvers overlaid with sterling silver flourishes?

Although he acquired some interesting pieces during his career, Peoples is worth remembering more for a mysterious 1961 murder case, one he was never able to solve. It involved the notorious Texas swindler Billie Sol

Romney Is President – NYTimes.com

IT makes sense that Mitt Romney and his advisers are still gobsmacked by the fact that they’re not commandeering the West Wing.

(Though, as “The Daily Show” correspondent John Oliver jested, the White House might have been one of the smaller houses Romney ever lived in.)

Team Romney has every reason to be shellshocked. Its candidate, after all, resoundingly won the election of the country he was wooing.

Mitt Romney is the president of white male America.

Maybe the group can retreat to a man cave in a Whiter House, with mahogany paneling, brown leather Chesterfields, a moose head over the fireplace, an elevator for the presidential limo, and one of those men’s club signs on the phone that reads: “Telephone Tips: ‘Just Left,’ 25 cents; ‘On His Way,’ 50 cents; ‘Not here,’ $1; ‘Who?’ $5.”

Why the Tea Party Failed. – Slate

The day after the election, FreedomWorks and its key state-to-state organizers dialed into a one-of-a-kind conference call. For the first time ever, they would be discussing a crushing defeat. Their “Take the Senate” campaign had ended with Democrats in greater control of the upper house. Their turnout game, powered by a new web-based canvassing app, was swatted aside by labor and the Democrats. Richard Mourdock, the Indiana politician who’d been with Tea Partiers since the 2009 Taxpayer March on Washington, had lost one of the party’s safest seats.

And now John Boehner was selling them out. The speaker of the House had just jimmied open the door to “new revenue,” which conservatives hear—correctly, typically—as “new taxes.”

“People were upset,” remembers Brendan Steinhauser, FreedomWorks’ director of state campaigns. “Does Boehner cave in to what Obama and Reid want%

Boehner: Obamacare is law of the land | Reuters

(Reuters) – Top Republican lawmaker John Boehner said on Thursday he would not make it his mission to repeal the Obama administration’s healthcare reform law following the re-election of President Barack Obama.

House Speaker John Boehner

“The election changes that,” Boehner, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, told ABC news anchor Diane Sawyer when asked if repealing the law was “still your mission.””It’s pretty clear that the president was re-elected,” Boehner added. “Obamacare is the law of the land.”

George Will: Conservatives should set sites on Congress … not White House

Editor’s Note: Conservative pundit looking across the landscape sees little change that Romney or Santorum can beat Obama and win the White House.

By TIM MAK | 3/2/12 8:33 AM EST

Columnist George Will says the 2012 presidential race looks like it might be a lost cause for Republicans and believes that the primary goal of conservatives should be to retain control of the House and win the Senate so Congress can restrain President Barack Obama while the GOP grooms its talent for 2016.

“Romney and Rick Santorum… are conservatives, although of strikingly different stripes. Neither, however, seems likely to be elected… If either is nominated, conservatives should vote for him,” Will writes in his upcoming Sunday column, obtained in advance by POLITICO Playbook by Mike Allen.

However, Will argues, that control of both house of Congress is more attainable and more important.

Do you always see the glass as half full?

So back in 2008 you turned on your TV set and heard a candidate speak about Hope and Change.  Right?  You knew nothing about this candidate other than he promised you Hope and Change.

You didn’t bother to try to understand it. You just heard his promise of Hope and Change.

Does that describe you?

The economy was in the dump and the candidate promised you a bailout for your home which was underwater. In fact, you heard the candidate promise a bailout for just about everyone.

Was that the way you saw it in August through November of 2008?

Well you may have a brain malfunction, a study shows.

Researchers at the University of London have found that those who ignored negative information and only focused on Hope and Change have a brain disorder. (read more)

These people have frontal lobes which do not process real information like it should.

Does that describe you?

Do you suspect that sometimes you don’t see the world like it really is?

If so, you may be a Dim-O-Crat.

Obama economist melts down on Cavuto Show

Obama spent a TRILLION DOLLARS and has produced no net jobs gained.

When Neil Cavuto on the Fox News Channel put that question to Obama’s chief economist his answer was to obfuscate and to change the subject.  Then when Cavuto pressed on the subject, he reverted to swearing.

<\/param><\/embed><\/object><\/div>“;” alt=”” />

This is the Obama economy:

  • On Friday the Dow ended the week down 400 points!
  • June unemployment was up by 125,000. LINK
  • 500,000 jobless workers stopped receiving unemployment payments.  They ran out of benefits.
  • The unemployment rate rose to 9.5% only because of the 500,000 workers lost their benefits.
  • The state of Illinois stopped paying it’s bills.  LINK
  • 7.9 million jobs have been lost.  It’s likely many will never come backLINK

It was classic Kinnock

Yes!  It was classic Neil Kinnock, the left wing British Labor Party leader, who reluctantly lost to Margaret Thatcher back in 1983.

Don’t get sick.  Don’t get old.   Sound familiar?   That line was echoed on the podium in the U. S. House of Representatives Sept. 29.   The Democrats are struggling to pass the universal health care bill.   The speech was delivered by Rep. Alan Grayson of the 8th District of Florida.

Kinnock was struggling to beat Thatcher when on June 7, 1983, he pinned the famous liberal speech.  Here is the full text of the speech:

If Margaret Thatcher is re-elected as prime minister on Thursday, I warn you.

I warn you that you will have pain–when healing and relief depend upon payment.

I warn you that you will have ignorance–when talents are untended and wits are wasted, when learning is a privilege and not a right.

I warn you that you will have poverty–when pensions slip and benefits are whittled away by a government that won’t pay in an economy that can’t pay.

I warn you that you will be cold–when fuel charges are used as a tax system that the rich don’t notice and the poor can’t afford.

I warn you that you must not expect work–when many cannot spend, more will not be able to earn. When they don’t earn, they don’t spend. When they don’t spend, work dies.

I warn you not to go into the streets alone after dark or into the streets in large crowds of protest in the light.

I warn you that you will be quiet–when the curfew of fear and the gibbet of unemployment make you obedient.

I warn you that you will have defence of a sort–with a risk and at a price that passes all understanding.

I warn you that you will be home-bound–when fares and transport bills kill leisure and lock you up.

I warn you that you will borrow less–when credit, loans, mortgages and easy payments are refused to people on your melting income.

If Margaret Thatcher wins on Thursday–

– I warn you not to be ordinary

– I warn you not to be young

– I warn you not to fall ill

– I warn you not to get old.


The InkDemon warned in an earlier blog that this would happen.  LINK

Now watch the Democratic party’s version of Classic Kinnock:

This speech shows that the Democrats have nothing new to offer the American people other than tax, spend, and pork.  

This speech will be replicated in every house district in every state.  It didn’t work for Kinnock.  It won’t work for the Democrats.


Joe Biden knows Kinnock speeches well.  He plagiarized Kinnock in a series of speeches back in 1987.  LINK

Kinnock, according to the London Telegraph, said:

“Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? Was it because our predecessors were thick? Does anybody really think that they didn’t get what we had because they didn’t have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment? Of course not. It was because there was no platform upon which they could stand”

JOE BIDEN IN Sept 1987 during his first presidential campaign:

“Why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family ever to go a university? Why is it that my wife… is the first in her family to ever go to college? Is it because our fathers and mothers were not bright? …Is it because they didn’t work hard? My ancestors who worked in the coal mines of northeast Pennsylvania and would come after 12 hours and play football for four hours? It’s because they didn’t have a platform on which to stand.”

The Democrats will stop at nothing to win.   However, like Neil Kinnock,  time is running out.
