ohio voter fraud

Remember Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner? She took it upon herself to re-interpret Ohio election law during the final dash toward election day 2008, creating a situation where 'voters' could register and cast their ballots on the same day, albeit without any pollwatchers.

Now, three staffers for Vote Today Ohio -- Amy Little, Daniel Hausman and Yolanda Hippensteele -- have plead guilty to illegally registering and voting in Columbus.

Some might say that Barack Obama, as a result of these sanctioned shenanigans -- after all, the Obama campaign, ACORN, Vote From Home and Vote Today Ohio, all worked toward the same goal, and that goal was to elect Obama -- is an illegitimate president.

Where else did this type of stuff happen? North Carolina? Virginia? Colorado? Oregon? California? Florida?

american outrage?



Christopher Talbot, WCBS-AM Listener

The Feds knew that Monday's Air Force One NYC flyover would cause hysteria -- yet they ordered it anyway, at an approximate cost to the taxpayers of $329,000... All the while demanding total secrecy from the NYPD, the FBI, the Secret Service and Bloomberg's office.

Where is the widespread American outrage over this Democratic boondoggle?

Arlen Specter just announced that he's becoming a Democrat.

So much to say about this... But, the first thing I thought of was how Bush and Rove, in a temporary effort to maintain the GOP's 2004 Senate majority, believed Specter was the most electable Senatorial candidate a few years ago, so they supported him over Pat Toomey.

(Ironically, Toomey will be challenging Specter again next year.)

Just six weeks ago Specter promised not to switch parties.
"I am staying a Republican because I think I have an important role, a more important role, to play there. The United States very desperately needs a two-party system. That's the basis of politics in America. I'm afraid we are becoming a one-party system, with Republicans becoming just a regional party with so little representation of the northeast or in the middle atlantic. I think as a governmental matter, it is very important to have a check and balance. That's a very important principle in the operation of our government. In the constitution on Separation of powers."
But then he saw the polls that have Toomey up double digits after Specter's pitiful vote for the Obama porkulus bill. Political survival makes you do stuff you normally wouldn't, right Arlen? Chicken bleep.

Now, all the Democrats have to do is hope the Supreme Court makes the wrong call in the Minnesota Senate race and they'll have themselves a filibuster-proof 60 Senate seat Majority.

Update: Oh, look! Joe Biden supposedly had 'a big role' in flipping Specter. I'm glad 'Slow Joe' has had something productive to do. At least the Vice President isn't plagiarizing speeches anymore.

'just plane dumb'


Make that 100 days, 102 mistakes.

How insensitive, selfish and stupid is the Obama administration? Flying a mock Air Force One around the Statue of Liberty and then directly across lower Manhattan as a photo op stunt?

Thousands of people were evacuated out of their buildings as a result of this 'photo op.' Or, as an 'annoyed' Mayor Mike Bloomberg correctly said, "It was an ill considered, badly conceived, insensitive photo op - with the taxpayers' money."

From the NY Daily News:

"The planes appeared on the horizon around 10 a.m. and sent a chill through the city.

"Flying in as low as 1,000 feet to 1,500 feet above New York City, they circled the Statue of Liberty before flying over Manhattan, Staten Island and New Jersey.

"Before they vanished, hundreds of frightened people had jammed emergency phone lines, and thousands of terrified people evacuated from buildings in the city and across the river in New Jersey.

"I was crying and praying to God to forgive me my sins because I thought I was going to get killed," said Kathleen Filandro, who fled from 1New York Plaza when she spotted the planes.

"It's like someone coming up to you, sticking a gun to your head for 15 seconds, walking away and hearing 20 minutes later it was an undercover cop posing for a photo," said Wall Street worker Bill Privett.

"I am still shaking," he said."

I don't remember President Bush ever doing anything like this. Of course, Bush wasn't as fiscally irresponsible as Obama, who wanted photographs taken of the presidential airplane along the backdrop of the Statue of Liberty and New York City to be given out to political donors and supporters. At taxpayer expense. During an economic downturn, the President himself has likened to the Great Depression.

'Hope' and 'change,' baby!

d'oh!

"100 Days, 100 Mistakes," should really be "100 Days, 101 Mistakes" because Obama had a teleprompter malfunction today.

coward change

Al Gore still ducks debates. This time, Lord Christopher Monckton came all the way from London to testify alongside the former Vice President but Congressional Democrats wouldn't allow it.

raising taxes


Cap and trade is nothing but a big tax. Even Michigan's Democratic Congressman John Dingell says so!

slim margin

This closely watched NY 20 Congressional election is over and Scott Murphy, a Democrat, has prevailed over Republican Assemblyman Joe Tedisco.

GOP opportunity lost? Obviously, but it was close. The President campaigned for Murphy and he only won by 399 votes?

That's some weak coattails you got there, BO.

wicked witch of the west



House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a terrible liar...

She didn't know that waterboarding and other interrogation techniques were being used?

Despite the secret 2002 CIA briefings for Congressional leaders? All 30 briefings?

This is the person third in line for the Presidency?

It is simply unbelievable that this woman is in ANY position of power anywhere.

Pelosi is a fool, a moron and a partisan hack who lies about the CIA told her with respect to America's national security?

*The words that describe my opinion of Pelosi are unprintable.

**Republicans -- You had damn well be ready to exploit Pelosi's weakness to your own partisan advantage for the good of the country.

You had damn well be ready to lead this country again and save it from the likes of Pelosi and Obama.

100 days

We're approaching Obama's 100th day in office and, according to the Politico, the White House wants us to know a few things:

(1) Obama is a promise-keeper.
Sure. He gave 95% of Americans,' welfare checks, calling them 'tax cuts.'

(2) Obama is a game-changer.
I agree. He's flipped everything upside down, making friends with our enemies, alienating our friends, making America less safe, publicizing our tactics and slashing the military.

(3) Obama is the decider.
No. Poll-whore David Axelrod is the decider.

(4) Obama is not in the bubble.
Correct. He's out on the campaign trail everyday at phony photo-op events.

(5) Obama is not FDR.
Although he wishes he were.

(6) Obama is FDR.
He wishes he were.

(7) Obama is one cool cucumber.
People hated when Bush strutted around, but it's fine if the half-black guy does it.

stayin' classy

Larry King asked Levi Johnston, father of Sarah Palin's grandson, some pretty remarkable questions last night.
KING: Where -- was -- did sex occur in their house?

LEVI JOHNSTON, EX-FIANCE OF BRISTOL PALIN: You know, Larry, that I'm a gentleman, you know. And I don't, you know, kiss and tell. So, you know, I don't think that really -- that really matters. I mean...

KING: And how about the part, though, that -- well, first you said you practiced safe sex most of the time, right?

L. JOHNSTON: Right.

KING: Most of the time.
Nice dig with the 'safe sex' comment. Nice editorializing. Classy 'journalism' at CNN.

falling


34%-32% strongly approve of Obama and overall, 54% somewhat approve of Obama. What happened to that 60% approval rating, huh? And the Generic Congressional Ballot is even. Again. None of this surprises.

I am surprised that 72% of Americans believe that they can improve the environment by personal action. When did we become such a nation of idiots? This is so frustrating.

wtf? part ii

janet napolitano 2.jpgUS Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano keeps reminding me more and more of Janet Reno.

"9/11 hijackers entering the US through Canada?" (Uh, no, Janet. They were already inside the United States because of the Clinton administration.)

All we've heard over the past five, six years is how 'incompetent' the Bush administration was. Obama, and his ilk, were supposed to be the smartest, the best and the brightest...

Napolitano is clearly not up for the job, confusing the peaceful, cross-border-trading Canada with the ultra-violent, gun and drug running Mexican border. Read "The Border for Dummies," courtesy of Canada's National Post.

I've been asking the same question since last December. Why is Napolitano even a member of Obama's cabinet? What are her qualifications? These are the best and the brightest leaders our country has to offer? God help us.

Napolitano is the same woman (a member of the Obama administration) who apparently believes that returning American ex-military are dangerous people who pose a threat to US national security.

God, I miss the Bush administration.

wtf?

US President Barack Obama,...

Remembering back to the campaign, Israel was not a big fan of Obama. They preferred McCain in public opinion polls. Presumably, because they believed, Obama, if elected, would be soft on dictators and dangerous regimes, like Iran.

Now, The Jerusalem Post's Shmuley Boteach asks an important question: Why does President Obama smile, hug, bow to and coddle dictators, giving them instantaneous, unearned credibility?

Obama went to Turkey and declared, rather stupidly I thought, that the United States isn't 'at war with Islam,' while at the same time failing to remind people in the Middle East that it was, in fact, America who removed Saddam Hussein -- a man who killed one million Muslims -- at the cost of 4,500 American lives?

Is glossing over recent American history really 'the change we need'? Is failing to 'publicly identify the real enemies of Islam' qualify as 'hope' and 'change'?

an easy call

Even Dennis Blair, Obama's National Intelligence Director privately told his staff last week that 'high value information' was gleaned from Bush's harsh interrogations and officials got 'a deeper understanding of the al Qaeda network.'

Even so, Blair chillingly said, 'I like to think I would not have approved those methods in the past.' Why not approve these methods if they work? He is admitting that he is unable to do his job effectively.

Where is the conflict here? If it is between textbook Liberal ideology and real world policy successes, which one am I going to implement, so I can effectively protect America, the American people, her allies and her interests around the world?

Obama and his people are completely brain-dead on the CIA interrogation/national security issue and their own Intelligence Director just admitted it.

'second wave'


The CIA confirmed today that enhanced interrogation techniques, specifically waterboarding, used on Khalid Sheik Mohammed, (above) yielded intelligence to the Feds that prevented a 'second wave' of 9/11-style attacks on Los Angeles.

So, if Obama had been the president six years ago, terrorists would have successfully attacked LA. (Btw, Thank you very much President Bush, Vice President Cheney, other key administration officials and everyone at the CIA who prevented the LA attack. You served us well.)

That's it, cut and dried. Democrats are soft and weak against our enemies, because they, themselves seek to bring down America. For other reasons, of course. Economic and social justice...to level the playing field...to be more like Europe...blah, blah, blah, teleblah... Different methods. Same goals.

don't be a hater

President Barack Obama gestures during his meeting with King ...
(Hater)

The articulate and wise Mitt Romney has written a piece for National Review in which he declares President Obama to be 'a timid advocate of freedom.'

I should say so, especially after cozying up to all those South American dictators. The new US policy toward Cuba not only ensures that the Castro regime will continue, Americans will finance it.

The President of the United States should be our number one fan, our biggest cheerleader. He or she should talk up the virtues of America.

Not BO. Not 'Mr. Hope and Change.' Our new President is also our biggest critic. He does something no previous president ever has. He criticizes from foreign soil, which is about as tastelessly anti-American as it gets.

In this Feb. 21, 2009 file photo, Former Massachusetts Gov. ...
(Non-hater)

This reminds me very much of Obama's friends like the America-hating Jeremiah Wright. This reminds me of the homegrown American terrorist/murderer Bill Ayres and his equally criminal wife Bernadine Dohrn. Barack Obama seems to hate his own country. Why else would he say the things he says?

Says Romney: "London’s Daily Telegraph observed that President Obama “went further than any United States president in history in criticizing his own country’s action while standing on foreign soil.”

And why would he do the things he does? Like making it more difficult for the CIA to protect America?

I'm afraid that freedom and democracy are shaping up to the be the big losers from the Obama administration. America and the world will suffer as a result of Barack Obama. Thank you, John McCain.

Key line from Romney: "The words spoken by the leader of the free world can expand the frontiers of freedom or shrink them."

obamatopia

I love everything Victor Davis Hanson writes but he's topped himself here, in Obamatopia.

Hanson's critique of Obama's ignorant world view is spot-on and scary all at the same time. In screenwriting, we call it the logline...the TV Guide summary of what the piece is about. Here, the summation of Obamatopia is profound:

'Does our president truly grasp why certain nations hate us — or does he really believe it's all Bush's fault?'

A lot of stupid people need to be reminded -- and I wanted McCain and Palin should have pound this line into the American subconscious during the '08 campaign -- George W. Bush didn't make the world a dangerous place. The world was always dangerous and foreigners have always wanted to kill us.

successes

I didn't see the Cheney interview on Fox News Channel, but I completely agree with the Vice President in theory about the further declassification of CIA memos that show the successes gleaned from the agency's hard work in protecting the country in the wake of 9/11.

Last week, Obama foolishly declassified the method-memo's, demoralizing the bureau. The least he can do now is to trumpet the successes of the bureau. As Cheney said, we need to know 'what we learned through the interrogation process and what the consequences were for the country.'

Earlier, I praised Obama with wisdom in his approach to Iraq. This is another important decision that impacts the national security of the United States. He can go one of two ways here. Either, he follows Cheney's recommendation and tells the world that what we did was just and right and had positive results for America, or he allows the CIA to twist in the wind.

'change we need'?

Cutting $100 million off the federal budget? Yawn. Even the AP says it's a drop in the bucket. Insignificant in real terms.

At the same time, Obama wants to give the IMF $100 BILLION!

From Krauthammer:
Obama boasts 'of his frugality by saying that his budget would reduce domestic discretionary spending as share of gross domestic product to the lowest level ever recorded. Amazing. Squeezing discretionary domestic spending at a time of hugely expanding budgets is merely the baleful residue of out-of-control entitlements and debt service, which will increase astronomically under' his administration.
Releasing classified CIA interogation tactics documents? Telling terrorists around the world what we do and how we do it? We might make you feel like you're drowning, but don't worry! We always pull back at the last minute! Is this the 'change we need'?

He's shaking hands and becoming friends will all of the bad people in the world. I know, just like Jesus. Getting cozy, cozy with the enemies of the United States (Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, among others) might be part of Obama's plan, I don't think it's a good idea. Coziness = legitimacy. Bad change.

And that coziness apparently extends to North Korea. While they are firing off rockets in our direction, Obama is cutting the military budget and scrapping plans for the missile defense shield. National defense on the cheap? Bad idea.

One good piece of news. There's no difference between Bush and Obama on Iraq. Good. That's change we don't need. I salute Obama here.

2 years ago

Harry Reid is a lying, anti-American, hypocritical scumbag. The lowest of the low. He's also wrong. So much for that 'war is lost' crap, huh, Harry?

dumb and dumber

Obama's brain David Axelrod said the Tea Parties were 'unhealthy.'

He said some other really dumb stuff too, like claiming Obama 'cut taxes' for 95% of Americans. Um, no. That's a lie. Obama issued welfare checks. He did not cut the tax rates, which is what you do if you are cutting taxes.

People are so stupid.

very suspect

[Review & Outlook]
How can there be 'missing votes' in a US Senate race? It seems so preposterous. It feels like Florida 2000, when the Democrats tried to 'determine the will of the voter,' and studied 'dimpled' and 'pregnant chads.'

It was dishonest and stupid and illegitimate. Just as it is in Minnesota, where lying liar Al Franken 'leads' incumbent Republican Senator Norm Coleman by 312 votes. Franken has been declared the winner by a three judge reviewing panel, even though some votes have 'been counted differently than others.'

That's a big problem. How can one vote be counted differently from another vote? Doesn't make sense. The only reasonable thing is to count each vote exactly the same way, therefore ensuring fairness and accuracy.

The Franken campaign, just like the Gore campaign in Florida, are double-counting votes. That's illegal. The Franken campaign, just like the Gore campaign, has presented 'newly discovered ballots.'

In the recount, some Minnesota counties counted new absentee ballots. Others didn't. No wonder this has become such a mess. Meanwhile, there are 4,000 uncounted absentee ballots that have not yet been counted for Coleman. Equal protection, anyone?

Scott Johnson @ NRO has a different take. He thinks Coleman screwed up the recount and Franken won the election fairly and above board. Hmm.

coddling dictators


Outrageous.

lazy, dishonest media

The Tea Parties weren't staged events in big cities. No way. Tens of thousands of people came out organically in places like Bozeman, Montana; Eau Claire, Wisconsin; Carson City, Nevada; White Plains, New York; Bend, Oregon; Lansing, Michigan; Hilo, Hawaii; Nashville, TN.

Michelle Malkin is calling the Tea Parties 'The Million Taxpayer March.' Crowd estimates are in the 250,000 range, so MM is rounding up, like the MSM always does for Liberal protests.



I know you've already seen CNN's Susan Roesgen lecturing a protester about Obama's stimulus plan. But keep watching to see just how uninformed she was about the Tea Parties. She didn't understand how the event happened. A female protester said, 'It's all over the Internet. What do you think the Internet is for?' Duh.

Blatantly biased, lazy, dishonest CNN.

Blatantly biased, dishonest MSNBC. I was watching Rachel Maddow the other night when she said that 'Obama has cut taxes for 95% of Americans.' Hello? Welfare checks aren't tax cuts. Dumb lesbian.

the governor of texas

Gov. Perry Backs Resolution Affirming Texas’ Sovereignty Under 10th Amendment
A couple of years ago I heard Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, declare that once his term was done, he was trading politics for teaching. And I thought, 'that's a shame.'

Now, he's suddenly the toast of the tea party and his passionate, unwavering support of states' rights is refreshingly right. Maybe Perry's future plans will change.

'overcollection'

Hey, at least we can rest assured that Obama and the NSA are reading our emails and listening to our phone calls. And they've recently begun to exceed the Congressional limits established in 2008.

Oh, sure. People will now say, "Kent, you hypocrite, you supported the NSA wiretaps under Bush."

Damn right I did. I trusted Bush. He favored freedom for everybody, except bad guys. They weren't listening to Americans citizens on a whim. They were intercepting communications originating overseas coming into the United States.

Yes, they did seek to tap a member of Congress but only because lawmakers believed the Representative terrorist ties, was already under surveillance and was part of a Congressional delegation that traveled to the Middle East in 2005 or 2006.

I don't trust Obama and I don't trust Attorney General Eric Holder. These guys favor freedom restrictions on everybody.

People now will say, "Well, Kent. Your guy Bush created this program."

He did, but he didn't abuse it. Obama and the Democrats will most certainly abuse it. They already are.

'unbelievable'

The Obama administration has released four redacted and formerly classified Bush-era enhanced interrogation memos.

This CBS link objectively describes these memos as 'Torture memos.' Download the memos via the ACLU here.

(Btw, hilarious ACLU slogan, "Safe and Free." As if we'll remain that way by granting rights to terrorists, apologizing to them and sharing our interrogation methods.)

Waterboarding
Sleep deprivation
Cramped confinement
A caterpillar in a box
Standing/stress positions
Facial hold/facial slap

None of this stuff is torture. And al Qaeda prisoners don't deserve Geneva Convention protections, either. If the above techniques save lives, great. If we get actionable, real time intelligence from doing these things, among others, let's keep doing them. We would be foolish not to use every method at our disposal.

As I read these memos, particularly the one about Abu Zebaydah written by Jay Bybee, former Assistant Attorney General, I see the extraordinary care and planning of safety measures specifically for the prisoner. I don't read anything that leads me to conclude 'torture.' In fact, I get the opposite impression.

Bybee wrote, in terms of waterboarding,
"We understand that a medical expert will be present throughout this phase (of interrogation) and that the procedures will be stopped if deemed medically necessary to prevent severe mental or physical harm to Zebaydah. As mentioned (previously), Zebaydah suffered an injury due to his capture. You have informed us that steps will be taken to ensure that this injury is not in any way exacerbated by the use of these (interrogation) methods and adequate medical attention will be given to ensure that (the injury) will heal properly."
Does that sound like an out of control government, actively engaged in torturing and killing people?

Yet, Obama perpetuates this myth, calling the Bush years 'a dark, painful chapter in American history.' He's lying again and pandering to his Leftwing kook base, again. Dark for whom? Yeah, it was dark for the terrorists around the world, to Bush's great credit.

From the Politico:
"A former top official in the administration of President George W. Bush called the publication of the memos “unbelievable.”

“It's damaging because these are techniques that work, and by Obama's action today, we are telling the terrorists what they are,” the official said. “We have laid it all out for our enemies. This is totally unnecessary. … Publicizing the techniques does grave damage to our national security by ensuring they can never be used again — even in a ticking-time- bomb scenario where thousands or even millions of American lives are at stake."
The release of these memos does nothing but provide assistance to the enemy and hasten dark days again to our shores. Democrats are so pathetically weak on national defense it renders them completely unqualified to hold high positions of power in government.

inappropriate


Speaking of the Tea Parties, the so-called Mainstream Media, took the occasion to use crude, sexual language on the air.

Now, I'm no prude. I possess a colorful vocabulary, but I speak appropriately when required. I never thought I'd hear Anderson Cooper cracking jokes about 'tea bagging' on CNN. And laughing about it. But he did.

For those who don't know, 'Tea bagging,' is a sexual reference describing the process of a man (1.) rubbing his scrotum on another person's face or (2) putting his scrotum into another person's mouth.

Demonstrators line Main Street in Las Cruces, N.M., to protest taxes Wednesday. (AP Photo)

On MSNBC, David Shuster jovially described yesterday's coast to coast protests as 'full throated' and 'toothless.' He said that the protesters "want to give President Obama a strong tongue-lashing and lick government spending."

Oral sex jokes on news programs? When did this become appropriate journalism? Why is Left leaning media using sex slang to describe the peaceful protests of Americans? Maybe because when Leftwingers protest they burn, damage and destroy things. When Liberals protest people get hurt.

When did it become appropriate for a 'reporter' like CNN's Susan Roesgen in Chicago yesterday to interrupt the person she was 'interviewing' to lecture him about Obama's stimulus package? It was like she was carrying Obama's water. Maybe she's on the payroll?

Where is the objectivity in saying that the Tea Parties were the concoction of Fox News and conservative talk radio? Where's the objectivity of Roesgen when she declared that the Chicago party was 'anti-CNN' and 'not very family friendly'?

No wonder nobody watches their crap anymore.

dreamer

I have a dream. Liberals in the Minority. Well, they already are. The Majority of Americans are not these crazy Leftwingers. But, unfortunately, the government is now controlled by crazy Leftwingers.

Of course, the President and most of his fellow Liberals didn't campaign as Liberals. No, they campaigned, as Liberals always do, as Conservatives. If Liberals campaigned as Liberals they'd lose.

But back to my dream: Liberals, in the Minority again. Where they belong. One day. Maybe sooner rather than later thanks partly to the Tea Parties, but mostly to the growing consensus that our country is drifting hard Left.

I think I'm going to join the NRA and start carrying a gun like DHS' Janet Napolitano, (pictured above) who thinks all retired military are potential, probable Timothy McVeighs.

surly bastard

Barack Obama meets with Nicholas Sarkozy at the Palais Rohan
Word is, France's Sarkozy doesn't much like Obama. Hey, join the club. Although, I must say, Sarko seems to be a bit of a poser. Like France itself.

BO might piss me off, but he's still my President. See? Automatically, I'm a better American than millions of Democrats who protested Bush. I'm an American first and foremost. Screw the world.

begala must be british

Paul Begala says April 15 is the one day the government asks us to sacrifice for the greater good.
The idiotic Paul Begala thinks it's 'patriotic' to pay burdensome taxes for social programs.

[He must have some British blood in him.]

American Revolution anyone?

running scared

The above map of the Tea Party locations looks rather newsworthy to me. It doesn't look like 'nothing.' Why are Democrats talking about how irrelevant these events are? Why are they opposed to free speech?

Why are Liberal gatherings the only acceptable presentations of 'Democracy' at work? Why aren't Liberals celebrating the 1st Amendment today along with the rest of us?

The bigger question is this: Why are Democrats such lying, hypocritical, anti-American, anti-freedom, anti-capitalism, anti-growth, anti-investment, anti-Constitutional creeps? And why do they seek to de-legitimize the Tea Parties by referring to as 'Tea Bagging'? [Leave it to the Left to sink to the lowest common denominator.]

Answer: They seek to de-legit and marginalize because they are scared to death of today's events. The anti-freedom crowd has reason to fear the freedom people because they are going to demand their freedom.

i'm drinking tea

[Commentary]
Cindy Sheehan and her group of 25 protested Bush and the Right didn't have a problem with it. But "Tea Parties," the Left has a big problem.

People across the country today, in 300 locations in all 50 states, (like Santa Barbara, CA, above on April 4) will march, without affiliation, with only grass roots organization, spreading like wild fire.

This is the same type of activity that the Left praised back in '04 (when Howard Dean was behind it) and in '08 (when Barack Obama was behind it) only this time, this organization is spreading itself.

Hmm. This might change everything. Or not. Let's just wait and see.

'right wing extremists'

The Department of Homeland Security has written a 9 page report warning authorities about 'rightwing extremists' and 'military vets' being threats to public safety.

From the Washington Times:
"The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in "rightwing extremist activity," saying the economic recession, the election of America's first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias.

"It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration," the warning says."
The White House has distanced itself from this 9 page report. I bet they have. Good luck. THIS is what Liberals like Obama really think of the military. Interesting perspective given the military made the President look good on Easter Sunday.

No, if you voted for McCain, own a gun, live outside the City Limits, proudly wore the uniform of your nation or have a Ron Paul or Bob Barr bumper sticker on your car, then....you are more dangerous than al Qaeda.

It seems our freedoms are dwindling, our free speech forums threatened, at the behest, interestingly enough by people who proclaim themselves to be tolerant and open minded.

bagram

It's great to see that Obama is continuing many of the Bush-era stuff, namely denying habeus corpus rights to detainees held in Afghanistan.

Of course, this proves Bush did the right things, running strongly counter to ridiculous campaign rhetoric.

Obviously, non-citizens in a time of war don't have any rights.

pirates

Why don't we send in decoy ships, lure pirates aboard and wipe them out?

Let's make it clear we won't stand for this stupid hostage-taking stuff anymore.

Let's throw these terrorists into the shark-infested waters.

I doubt we'd see much more of this.

coleman/franken

The Minnesota supreme court has ruled that Franken won the Senate race by 312 votes.

Norm Coleman plans to appeal.

Good.

'the shine's off'


Kudos to the US Navy for rescuing Captain Phillips. It was a great moment yesterday and made Easter even better.

But Obama doesn't deserve kudos. ('The Shine's Off,' says The Economist. They quite rightly accuse him of 'frequent incompetence.') His authorization to use lethal force to save Capt. Phillips was 'legally required.' This was an order than any American President would have given. Except Jimmy Carter.

By the way, that's Obama's job, to authorize the military to save the lives of Americans. So, clearly, our 44th President is smarter than Carter, our 39th President, who sat paralyzed with fear for 444 days while Americans were held hostage by the mad Iranians. But, so what?

I'm still more concerned about what BO did and said during his G20/European love fest. Not so much concerned about his new dog.



The two things he wanted/needed -- (1) economic assistance and (2) NATO assistance in Afghanistan -- he didn't get. Barack Obama's first overseas trip as President was, more or less, an abject failure. He didn't 'unite the world' like he promised during the campaign, but he sure did a lot of apologizing. Far from the 'turning point' he talked about.

I think it's fair to say that America is better served when we are feared than when we are kissing the butt of Europe. So, it's also fair to say that George W. Bush is always going to be considered a better, more effective President than Barack Obama.

Oh, and crazy bastard and convicted murderer Phil Spector (above) thinks 'Barack Obama rocks.' There you go! The insane murderers love BO! Glad to say I represent the sane people who think Obama sucks.

north korea, the un and stupidity

Why would anybody rely on the United Nations? Obama is learning just how irrelevant the world body is on matters of importance.

A week since the North Korean rocket launch and counting... There hasn't even been agreement on the Security Council about concern over the the firing of the missile. The only area of agreement was that they'd stop having meetings!

Obama doesn't seem overly concerned about it, either. His response? Cutting funding for the US missile defense shield! Now, that's change NOT to believe in!!

equal protection

The Supreme Court decided Bush v. Gore in 2000 on one issue and issue alone: equal protection.

Gore was demanding, and in many cases, winning different standards for what and what did not constitute a legal vote. There were different standards thanks to the 'Democratic'-bred confusion in Florida.

Al Franken and the Minnesota Democrats have been doing much the same thing since November, attempting to use different voting standards and double-counting, i.e., cheating to take a +300 vote advantage over Republican incumbent Senator Norm Coleman.

Where does this leave Coleman? It is uber Liberal Minnesota, but even still I'd think he has a good chance IF he can draw specific comparisons to equal protection and the 7-2 Bush v. Gore SCOTUS decision, which is the established precedent.

lots to blog about

Karl Rove had an interesting piece in the WSJ this morning, claiming Obama is more divisive that George W. Bush. He backs it up. Read it here. Also, it's funny what Rove said about Biden.

Former PA Senator Rick Santorum on Obama. It ain't pretty, but it's true. As is the fact that Arizona State University has decided the President of the United States is too 'inexperienced for an honorary degree.'

Obama wants an extra $83.4 billion for war? When did BO morph into a wartime president? Some stark contrast here.

I didn't blog last week about the G20 because I was completely disgusted by Obama's apologies and his failures on the American economy and Afghanistan. So much for a 'new kind of politician,' huh?

What an amazing time for Benjamin Netanyahu to be prime minister of Israel.

John Kerry wants 'pirate hearings.'

Los Angeles has rejected a water rationing plan.

Brilliant writing from Kimberly Strassel about Britain's idealistically challenged Cameroon's.

It's great to be back. I missed you...Discuss!

traveling teleprompter

President Obama's teleprompter had a weak, obtuse response to the firing of the North Korean missile should concern all Americans.

Is this really a good time to cut funding for a missile defense shield?

Obama, who seems to still be campaigning against President Bush, has been saying that he wants to lead the world in nuclear disarmament. But he ignores the fact that bad guys won't disarm.

North Korea is more than a annoyance. This is the beginning of a very dangerous situation and we have a new President who is more than happy to punt the North Korea problem to the United Nations.

The useless UN, by the way, yesterday was able to agree on language cricizing the North Korea rocket launch.

And it's not just Obama. It was Bush, it was Clinton, too. Although Bush, at least, had the good sense to engage in six party talks. But those talks got us nowhere.

Bottom line, it's time to stop talking about talking to North Korea. The next missile launch Obama should shoot it down.

Democrats don't get it. They want everyone to like us. And as they campaign for global popularity, threats gather. (Think Bill Clinton in the the '90s.)

While Obama cuts weapons programs, he sends the wrong message to our enemies... If we aren't negotiating from a position of strength, then we are negotiating from a position of weakness.

Obama is inviting tragedy.

perfect world

[Review & Outlook]
The Republican budget plan won't pass, but it would sure as hell work. Cutting spending, cutting corporate taxes and personal taxes and making permanent the Bush tax cuts, all prudent ideas.

Paul Ryan, (R-WI) the ranking Republican on the House Budget Committee, wrote a great piece for WSJ yesterday. In it, he lays out the GOP proposals for deficits/debt, spending, energy, entitlements and tax reform.
"It is very important to understand, we are going into an ocean of red ink in this country. We cannot go down this path of borrowing and borrowing and borrowing," said Ryan.
Deficits/debt -- The Republican budget yields a deficit $3.6 trillion less than Obama's by 2019 and lower deficits each year. The above graph says it all. Left unchecked and unchallenged, Obama and the Democrats will spend us into oblivion.

Spending -- Prioritizes defense spending, veteran's health care and freezes all discretionary spending for five years.

Energy -- Rejects cap & trade, explores for natural sources of energy here at home and invests in infrastructure.

Entitlements -- Makes health and retirement security sustainable.

Tax reform -- Cut taxes and offers tax filers a simplified way to file, with a post card, two deductions and two rates. They also cut the corporate tax rate to 25% so our companies can compete overseas.

This is what it would America would look like in a perfect world. (I can dream, can't I?)

read my lips

If the American people are consistent, they will remember today as the day that Barack Obama broke his campaign promise not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 a year and they will vote him out of office after one term. I know he didn't say 'Read my lips,' but it sounds like the same thing to me.
"I can make a firm pledge," he said in Dover, N.H., on Sept. 12. "Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."
Not any of our taxes. Except cigarette taxes. Going up a whopping 62 cents.

Now, personally, I think smokers deserve whatever they get. I hope that people stop smoking altogether. It's a nasty habit and if people are too stupid to smoke and to subject me to the terrible smell, well...screw them. I grew up with two smoking parents. As a kid, when we'd drive places as a family, my Mom and Dad would both puff away with all the windows rolled up. Smokers get no sympathy from me.

The White House is defending the tax hike saying Obama only meant that he wouldn't raise income or payroll taxes. And they are also saying the cigarette taxes are going to pay for children's health insurance. They expect this will give them "the cover they need" to make people forget about the Magic Negro breaking a major promise.
"No one making less than $250,000 under Barack Obama's plan will see one single penny of their tax raised, whether it's their capital gains tax, their income tax, investment tax, any tax."
So said Joe Biden. I think the key words in that quote would be "Any tax."

More Obama: "You will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime." Un huh.

Kathleen Hall Jamieson
, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, got it exactly right when she said earlier today, "I think a reasonable person would have concluded that Senator Obama had made a 'no new taxes' pledge to every couple or family making less than $250,000."

A protester climbs through the broken windows at Royal Bank of Scotland
g20 protests
g20 protests
Why do we allow these 'G' summits, the G7, the G8, now the G20, to devolve into a type of Keystone cops display, where the feckless police make half-assed attempts at controlling these professional protestors?

Arresting people who ransack the Bank of Scotland won't deter future anarchism.

Shooting one anarchist who endangers the life of a police officer or invades the sanctity of a private building or desecrates a statue would be a great deterrent.

And if we don't shoot them dead, at the very least we should stun gun the worst offenders so that they are paralyzed for a couple of weeks. If we can drop an elephant with a sedative, certainly, we can control 20 drugged-out hippies.

Simply put, the anarchists are ridiculous, as is the extreme amount of attention we give them. They want to abolish money, abolish capitalism. As if those are adult, rational ideas?

enemy of the state

Koh: Wants US courts to apply "world law."
Radicals believe that US Constitutional law should be interpreted by 'legal norms' of foreign countries.

Only anti-American zealots believe that the United States is a frequent violator of international law. That along with North Korea and Iraq, America is a member of the 'axis of disobedience.'

Harold Koh, (pictured above) Obama's controversial nominee to be the State Department's legal adviser isn't a 'strong defender' of American sovereignty. Rather, he thinks that international law should apply even to treaties we reject.

Koh is a transnationalist. He believes that 'mutual interests of all nations' should include 'the development of an ordered international legal system,' at the cost of American autonomy. Transnationalists prefer the emphasis of 'the interdependence between the United States and the rest of the world.'

In Koh's view, California voters would have no say in the matter of same sex marriage. Instead, the issue would wind it's way up to the federal courts and to the rest of the world. If Britain, the United Nations and The Hague support gay marriage, then it would become California law. No local ballot box necessary.

Koh, the former dean of Yale Law School, believes sharia law could be applied to legal cases here in America, as if there is something unacceptable about the American legal system.

A self described 'activist,' Koh, is on many Liberals' short list for the Supreme Court, which is just freaking unbelievable. Why hasn't this nomination gotten more attention?

Liberals have been engineering of the fall of the United States of America for a long time. Koh is just the most eggregious and recent example of the face of true Liberalism. Harold Koh, and others like him, are a cancer in this country.

What does the nomination of Harold Koh say about the President of the United States Barack Obama?
