  • America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President

    When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general...
  • Constitution Flouted On War If Panetta Testimony To Congress Says Anything

    Politics: Does the Constitution matter in executive decisions to go to war, or is the U.S. military just the president's plaything, subject to his getting U.N. "permission" to use it? Unsettling testimony this week suggested the latter. As a revolt in Syria heats up with talk of U.S. intervention, Senate Armed Services Committee member Jeff Sessions stumbled upon an astounding discovery about the White House attitude toward its oath of office and putting U.S. troops in harm's way. "We spend our time worrying about the U.N., the Arab League, NATO, and too little time, my opinion, worrying about the elected...

    Because it is so predictable, by now we should not be stunned by the stunning hypocrisy of the Left, but it is still tough not to be. One way to get your mind around it is to remember that the whole ideology and political existence of members of the communist Left are based on lies. They not only live on lies, lies are essential for their political survival. Let me explain why I call these people the communist Left or communist Democrats (and this also includes some who are fake Republicans). The very foundation of the Left’s platform is an...

    Tea Party Groups Fighting IRS Assault American Center for Law and Justice The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), focusing on constitutional law, said it is representing nearly 20 Tea Party organizations nationwide against what appears to be a coordinated attempt by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to intimidate and silence these organizations in this election year. The ACLJ says IRS information demands sent to Tea Party groups include probing questions that violate the free speech and freedom of association rights guaranteed by the First Amendment. "This appears to be a coordinated attempt to intimidate Tea Party organizations by...

    Not So Fast On That Whole Economic Recovery ThingMichael SnyderMarch 8, 2012 Not so fast. Those that are publicly declaring that an economic recovery has arrived are ignoring a whole host of numbers that indicate that the U.S. economy is in absolutely horrendous shape. The truth is that the health of an economy should not be measured by how well the stock market is doing. Rather, the truth health of an economy should be evaluated by looking at numbers for things like jobs, housing, poverty and debt. Some of the latest economic statistics indicate that unemployment is getting a little...

    Via Dan Riehl and Ace, this almost too good to check. Go read Rebel Pundit’s post for an explanation, then skip to 2:00 below. (If you missed Ed’s post this morning, by all means watch the whole thing.) After sneering at Joel Pollak for supposedly mischaracterizing the discipline and then refusing to define it herself, she finally demonstrates her grasp of Critical Race Theory by uncorking a definition that’s curiously similar to … the opening of Wikipedia’s intro on CRT, replete with the noncolloquial use of “intersection” to describe an interdisciplinary study. Could be a coincidence — the definition she...

    The Telegraph ^ | 3/8/2012 | Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
    Europe has ring-fenced Greece's debt crisis for now but its escalating recourse to legal legerdemain has shattered the trust of global bond markets and may ultimately expose Portugal, Spain, and Italy to greater danger. "The rule of law has been treated with contempt," said Marc Ostwald from Monument Securities. "This will lead to litigation for the next ten years. It has become a massive impediment for long-term investors, and people will now be very wary about Portugal." At the start of the crisis EU leaders declared it unthinkable that any eurozone state should require debt relief, let alone default. Each...

    Presidential Vetting: Obama's days at Harvard have been shrouded in secrecy. But a new video lifts a corner of the veil, revealing his creepy embrace of the "Jeremiah Wright of academia." It turns out his favorite law professor was the late Derrick Bell, a black radical who taught classes trashing the Constitution as racist. He liked Bell so much he led a law school "strike" in support of him in 1991, when the professor went on unpaid leave to protest the lack of affirmative-action hiring on campus. A video clip posted by Breitbart.com captures Obama praising Bell for "speaking the...
  • Ex-LAPD detective found guilty of first-degree murder

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A jury found former LAPD detective Stephanie Lazarus guilty of first-degree murder in the death of her ex-boyfriend's wife 26 years ago. The trial lasted more than 3 weeks, but it took the jury less than eight hours to return with a guilty verdict on Thursday. The jury also found the allegation that she personally used the firearm to be true. The 51-year-old showed no reaction when the verdict was read. Her husband left the courtroom immediately, and her mother left in tears about a minute later. "I am very disappointed. I think the speed of...

    White House coy on reported Israeli request for bombs, planes By Olivier Knox | The Ticket – 3 hrs ago Call it a classic "non-denial denial." The White House tap danced Thursday around questions about news reports that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked the Obama administration for massive "bunker-buster" bombs and long-range refueling planes that could play a role in a strike on Iran. Israeli media accounts said that Washington agreed in return for a pledge that any such attack would not happen in 2012. "In the meetings the president had, there was no such agreement proposed or reached,"...

    I hadn’t planned on posting more of the Morning Jolt today, but the video from Obama’s Harvard days seems to be the big story of the morning. It becomes the big story when CNN’s morning program features an old sitcom-actor-turned-pundit Jay Thomas suggesting that Breitbart.com editor-in-chief Joel Pollak is a racist for making a point about Barack Obama’s support for a proponent of “critical race theory” during his days at Harvard Law School. Unbeknownst to Thomas, Pollak’s wife is black. Breitbart.com also has footage of Prof. Charles Ogletree showing the 1991 video of Obama to an audience and saying with...

    If you had any lingering doubts about the power of the Web to spread a message, consider the astonishing impact of "Kony 2012." Over the past 48 hours, it would have been all but impossible to log into Facebook or Twitter and not see someone pointing to a stirring 30-minute video about Joseph Kony, a once-obscure Ugandan rebel leader alleged to have abducted, abused and killed thousands of children for more than two decades. The goal is simple enough: Make Kony's a household name to create a groundswell of outrage that would pressure governments to demand his arrest. This is...

    Saul Alinsky is alive and well in the political maneuverings of the secular left. The problem is; we all have the play book now. As most know, Rush Limbaugh has been under fire of late for comments he made about 30 year-old “reproductive justice” radical Sandra Fluke. Ms. Fluke recently gained national attention while testifying before Congress. There, she demanded that Georgetown Law, a Jesuit University, underwrite her stated fornication practices by paying for her and other students’ birth control and, ostensibly, abortions. Fornication and abortion, of course, are considered “mortal sins” in Christianity. Catholic doctrine further bars the church...

    Reporting from Washington— Troops serving in Afghanistan were advised never to touch the Koran, never to place anything on top of one, and to keep it off the floor and out of bathrooms. They were even told never to "talk badly" about it. But the do's and don'ts said nothing about burning the Muslim holy book, which is what happened last month as a cache of Korans was incinerated at Bagram air base, setting off riots across the country that killed more than 30 people and provoked attacks on U.S. forces. An investigation by NATO officials into the burnings found...

    Alabama Democrats scrub Bill Maher fundraiser off websiteBy Alex Pappas - The Daily Caller – 7 hrs ago The Alabama Democratic Party has now scrubbed a web page advertising its upcoming fundraiser with HBO’s Bill Maher following an uproar from conservatives about the event because of the comedian’s history of making sexist statements about women. The web address — http://aldemocrats.org/bill-maher — once took visitors to an invitation to the Maher reception in Huntsville on March 17. Now it redirects to the homepage of the Alabama Democratic Party. Bradley Davidson, the executive director of the Alabama Democratic Party, has not returned...
