Site News

This past week brought many additions to The Conservative Journal, including:

  • The DUmmies Exposed Series, which highlights the crap that goes on at Democratic Underground, as well as other liberal websites.
  • Mail Bag, which highlights e-mails and comments worth a second look.
  • The presence of The Conservative Journal on many different blog ranking sites, all of which can be found on the top of the right sidebar.  This week, The Conservative Journal worked it’s way into the Top 10 of several of the ranking sites during the heat of the Meghan McCain saga.  I guess we reported on it the best here? 🙂
  • The WikiGate Project, which is aimed to find the conspirator of the campaign to rid Barack’s Wikipedia entry of anything not deemed 100% good.

Poll of the Day Results

Although the results are in, the polls aren’t closed; you can click on the title of the poll and cast your late ballot!

March 14th- Are You Liberal or Conservative?

  • This could be the most obvious poll that will ever be on the site, but here are the results:  77% of readers of The Conservative Journal are more conservative, while 23% identify more with liberal viewpoints.  To those 23% in the minority:  I’m glad you here!  Rally some more of liberal friends so we get some comment debates going!  Seriously though, thank you to all that voted and read The Conservative Journal!

March 15th- Whose Side of the Fued Are You On?

  • This results of this poll are a lot closer than I expected:  When asked whose side Conservative Journal readers were (Either Jim Cramer or Jon Stewart) on in their little feud, 53% sided with Jon Stewart, and 39% sided with Jim Cramer; with the remaining  8% having no opinion.  I voted for Jim Cramer because I think his show is funnier, but I wasn’t expecting many to vote for him.  Guess everyone agrees?

March 16th- Internet problems prevented a poll on this day.

March 17th- What Do You Think About Laura Ingraham’s Comments?

  • In this poll, 63% thought that Laura Ingraham crossed the line with her “plus-sized model” comment to Meghan McCain, 23% think America needs to lighten up, and the remaining 14% don’t care about either one of them enough to form an opinion.  Once again, on this one I went with Laura Ingraham crossing the line initially, though after hearing the full context of the comments I don’t think they were that bad.

March 18th- What Are Your Views on Abortion?

  • On this random issue, the vote was almost split exactly as the “Liberal or Conservative?” poll, with 74% siding with the more conservative “Pro-life” option, and the remaining 26% going with the generally liberal choice of “Pro-choice”.  Of course, I went “Pro-life” on this one.

March 19th- Do You Support Gay Marriage?

  • Looks like our readers are a little more moderate on this one:  61% voted against gay marriage, with the remaining 39% voting in favor of gay marriage.  Of course, I voted against.

March 20th- What Do You Think of Barack’s Special Olympics Comments?

  • We posted this before news of his apology, and 74% of those polled said that B.O. needed to apologize for his remarks, with the remaining 26% thinking that America needs to lighten up and laugh.  While I did vote that B.O. needed to apologize (glad he did do that), I generally side with America needing to lighten up.  For someone that campaigned on a platform of hope, change, and equality this was a low blow.

Suspect #3: Al Gore

Al Gore reminding everyone he invented this internet.

Al Gore reminding everyone he invented this internet.

Al Gore is liberal enough to want the the Golden Boy to exist blemish-free, but he doesn’t have as much of a relationship with Barack as some of the other suspects.  Still, his liberalness could very well have been a motive behind changing the entry.  Look at the data below and decide for youself:

The Evidence:

Al is a tech savvy guy.  He’s got to know how to adjust his solar panels that he doesn’t really have to just the right wattage output to run his trillion square-foot Tennessee home.  So that in itself gives him the immediate upper-hand when compared to Pelosi and Frank.  Also, Al is used to having to swoop in and edit something online in order to save face.  Just look at all those times his global warming numbers were proven false; he quickly pulled a ‘select all’,  ‘delete’, ‘paste’ numerous times and had his global warming bull crap numbers changed to another set that we could all try and disprove.  Also worth noting, Al Gore invented the internet.

However…

Al doesn’t have as close ties with B.O. as most suspects.  Though they have similar political stances, they aren’t as close of friends and their paths don’t meet quite as much.  Also, Al is no doubt still bitter that his presidential prospects were cut short in 2000, and probably views Barack like the rest of us (an uninformed little punk) regardless of political view similarity.

Al Gore could be the dark horse in the race to find the conspirator of WikiGate.  He is not really a suspect in most people’s eyes, which could be one of the reasons he felt safe committing the act.  Don’t forget to check-in in the next few days to vote for who you think is behind this scandal.

Thanks for participating!

Suspect #2: Barney Frank

Barneys motives are eerily similar to Pelosi.  Was it he?

Barney's motives are eerily similar to Pelosi. Was it he?

Like Pelosi, Barney Frank also has a crush on Barack and would hate to see his boy toy be defamed on the world wide web.  But would this bumbling imbecile have it in him to remove those sentences from the Wikipedia entry?  Read the clues below and decide for yourself:

The Evidence

Similar to Pelosi, Barney has a lot of spare time on his hands to make the changes.  He also is, quite literally, in love with Obama.  I also imagine that he spends endless hours on the internet checking his Chemistry.com profile for hits and playing internet spades; thus, leaving plenty of oppurtunites for him to skip over to Wikipedia and make a few edits.  Rather him be surfing the web than yacking in that indecipherable voice, though.  Barney Frank is a true Obama fantard that would no doubt seize any oppurtunity for some butt-kissing.

However…

Also like Pelosi, Frank is many years old.  Though he can efficiently surf Chemistry.com and has mastered internet spades, he does not have a preprogrammed memory cell that contains instructions for browsing Wikipedia.  At the same time, ole Barney knows what it’s like to have skeletons in the closet and would no doubt jump at the chance to eliminate Big O’s for him.  I think Barney Frank is a true contendor for the conpsirator of WikiGate.

Barney certainly has the motive to commit this deed, but like Pelosi, he has age and inteligence constraints that would have held him back in the moment of editing the page.  Do you think it was Barney Frank?  How do you think he stacks up compared to Nancy Pelosi on the guilt-o-meter?  Leave comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Also don’t forget to subscribe to our RSS feed so you never miss an update in this ongoing saga!

** Sorry there was no suspect yesterday.  As I said in the poll of the day, I was experiencing internet problems and couldn’t access the site!  Sorry for the inconvenience!

Corruption: It’s What’s For Dinner

The most corrupt corporation in the country?  Absolutely.

The most corrupt corporation in the country? Absolutely.

Oh man, what a day this has been.  Announements for huge layoffs from some of the nations top corporations, Blagojavich’s exhilarating press tour, and many more wonderfully uplifting stories kept my phone constantly buzzing with e-mails for the entire day.  Everytime I received a new update I sighed as it became increasingly evident that we are certainly in some kind of a mess right now, and there are no signs of any slow down anytime soon.  Here are the “highlights” of today’s events:

1.  Remember all of our money that we were so generously forced to give to the failing finance industry?  Well I’m glad I can rest easy with the information that CitiGroup is spending all the funds on something worthwhile:  A brand new, luxurious corporate jet.  But no, as if that is not bad enough, the jet was made in FRANCE.  So not only are they wasting our money on new aviation, but they can’t even spend it in America and benefit our economy.  The next wave of bailouts will no doubt be for the fuel the plane requires.

2.  Everyone’s favorite congressmen Barney Frank secured 12 million of our dollars for his personal favorite bank to make sure it stays afloat while the FDIC is in the process of SUING the bank.  I would like to know when I can secure $12 million for my own personal piggy bank.

3.  Timothey Geithner was confirmed today our new Secretary of the Treasuery.  Well great, maybe his accountant can became “America’s Accountant” and screw up on all our taxes too.  That might not be too bad, actually, with all the extra cash in our poctects from crappy tax assessment maybe we can improve the economy!

4.  57,000 Americans joined the ranks of the unemployed today, and here’s the companies that contributed to this staggering number:  20,000 layoff from Caterpillar Inc, Pfizer Inc. contributed to 8,000 of the job losses, 8,000 eliminations from Sprint Nextel Inc, 7,000 people are being cut from Home Depot, 2,000 were cut from General Motors, and about 17,000 more were cut overseas.  What a day, what a day.

5.  Rod Blagojavich had an exhilararting day in the press, floating from news station to news station spreading his falsehoods.  In the process he comopared himself to, now get this, Ghandi, Nelson Mandela, and Martin Luther King, Jr.  I am having trouble finding ANY similarites between this moron and those three.  I have a feeling those three had slightly higher approval ratings than 7%.

What do you think about today’s events?  How much longer can Blagojavich jog in spandex like everything is ok?  Send us your comments at theconservativejournal@gmail.com and we might post them on the site!  Or, if technology isn’t your thing, leave us a comment below!
