  • Does Obama Doom America?

    American Spectator ^ | 11.14.12 | Quin Hillyer
    The question so many people are asking. The refrain started many weeks, even months, before the election, but its frequency and intensity has increased nearly exponentially since Nov. 6. "I don't know if we can survive another four years of this," people say. Or, "do you think we can survive four more years of this?" Even Bill Kristol, not prone to defeatism, speculated on what might happen "even if America can survive the next four years of Obama." -snip- It is not an idle worry. Barack Obama and his minions play for keeps. And they are playing for a...

    Jill Kelley is no longer welcome at MacDill AFB. The socialite who launched the David Petraeus sex scandal that's now also enveloped General John Allen, has been banned from the Tampa military base where she met both the four star military men, the Tampa Tribune is reporting. "She did have base access but does not currently because of her involvement in an ongoing investigation," a military official told the Tribune.

    This will boggle your mind. Barack Obama lost independent voters to Mitt Romney in every swing state except North Carolina and still won reelection. President Barack Obama won a second term by taking the majority of swing states. But a closer look at exit polling data shows Obama lost the independent vote in most of those states over the last four years. Independents, who do not align with one political party or another, make up a fast-growing and coveted voting bloc.

    President Barack Obama revealed at his press conference this afternoon that he is responsible for sending U.N. ambassador Susan Rice to speak to the American people a few days after the September 11 Benghazi terror attack. "As I said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her," Obama said at the press conference, defending the statements the ambassador to the U.N. made regarding the Benghazi attack. Rice has been widely criticized for giving misleading statements about Benghazi. She maintained that...

    Because of embarrassments to the Obama Administration caused by the unseemly conduct of General Petraeus and possibly other officers of flag rank, new requirements have been imposed. ZipperGate II The scandal involving General Petraeus' resignation due to marital infidelity, now referred to as "ZipperGate II" because President Clinton's involvement with Monica Lewinsky was ZipperGate I, has shocked the nation and caused potentially grave harm to the Obama Administration. Far worse, it could still endanger President Obama's personal standing with the public as well as his historically unique legacy. Indeed, it may even prove to be an unwelcome distraction from the...

    If the Obama administration hoped that the election results and the narrow split in Barack Obama's favor among Catholic voters would force the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) into retreat on the HHS contraception mandate, the USCCB's unity yesterday had to be a bit disappointing. The current president of the USCCB announced that the bishops would keep fighting the mandate, and while they were open to dialogue, the only option they will refuse to consider is "capitulation": A top American bishop said Tuesday the Roman Catholic church will not comply with the Obama administration requirement that most employers provide...

    The recent International Conference on Harappan Archaeology produced an unexpected announcement from archaeologists BR Mani and KN Dikshit, both of the Archaeological Survey of India, who claim that new dates from excavations show the Harappan culture began around 2000 years earlier than previously thought.The ruins of the Harrapan city of Mohenjo-daro remained undocumented for over 3,700 years, until their discovery in 1922 by Rakhaldas Bandyopadhyay, an officer of the Archaeological Survey of India. He was led to the mound by a Buddhist monk, who reportedly believed it to be a stupa. Image: Wikimedia commons Redating of Harappan culture Based on...

    LONDON (AP) — Britain's media are in a meltdown and its government is gaffe-prone, so Oxford Dictionaries has chosen an apt Word of the Year: "omnishambles." Oxford University Press on Tuesday crowned the word — defined as "a situation that has been comprehensively mismanaged, characterized by a string of blunders and miscalculations" — its top term of 2012. Each year Oxford University Press tracks how the English language is changing and chooses a word that best reflects the mood of the year. The publisher typically chooses separate British and American winners. This year's American champion is "gif," short for graphics...

    American Spectator ^ | 11.14.12 | George Neumayr
    It is always going "forward" no matter how much it declines. By every objective measure, America is in decline. But liberals insist that it is moving "forward." The modern philosophy of progress is Darwinian, holding that the latest development, whether of a country or a species, is always the best one. Mutations are assumed to be perfective, not destructive. Obama is the one "we have been waiting for," chanted his followers in 2008. They identified him as the agent of the final phase in liberalism's revolution. In 2012, Obama drew upon this revolutionary hope again, coining "forward" as his campaign...

    I have received the letter below a couple times now, and checking with Snoops they can only dispute it to the extent it originated with Nick Palmisciano co-owner and co-founder of Ranger Up and not General David Petraeus. The Army was excited enough about Palmisciano’s work that they published it on their Facebook. I verified the substance of its truthfulness as you can do also by looking at the links I checked. The article points out the severe disconnect now existing between veterans and the general citizenry. At the end of World War II, when 11 out of every 100...

    On the heels of David Petraeus agreeing to testify on the Libya terror attack, Republican senators on Wednesday stepped up their call to empanel a "select committee" to investigate the tragedy -- as they raised concern that the administration's internal review would fall short.  "Let me be clear: there is no credibility among most of us concerning the administration and the numerous controversies and contradictions that have been involved in their handling of this issue," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said, at a lengthy news conference on Capitol Hill.  McCain was joined by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., in...

    SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- When this sun-drenched exurb east of Los Angeles filed for bankruptcy protection in August, the city attorney suggested fraudulent accounting was the root of the problem. The mayor blamed a dysfunctional city council and greedy police and fire unions. The unions blamed the mayor. Even now, there is little agreement on how the city got into this crisis or how it can extricate itself. "It's total political chaos," said John Husing, a former San Bernardino resident and regional economist. "There is no solution. They'll never fix anything."

    Serious talk of America's defense budget was largely absent from the final weeks of the presidential campaign, once President Barack Obama likened Gov. Mitt Romney's concerns to an anachronistic focus on "horses and bayonets." But when Mr. Romney lamented that (among other things) the U.S. Air Force has the fewest airplanes it has ever had, he was correct. At its founding in 1947, it had more than 12,300 planes. Today: approximately 5,200. As the Air Force has been retiring large numbers of older aircraft in recent years, its budgets—drafted by the Pentagon and ultimately enacted by Congress—have prevented it from...

    We, the people of the US, are heading for a disaster of epic proportions. And when it hits, due to the US influence abroad, the world will feel the hurt at the same magnitude. Why? Fiat currency, that’s why. Combined with rapidly increasing national debt, and interest rates kept artificially low, with massive infusions of "cash" into the market place, the foundation holding up the confidence in the US dollar is starting to crumble. Given more credit ratings downgrades by the various international credit foundations and agencies, the point of irreversible damage is quickly approaching. When that happens, hyper-inflation will...

    The immigrant community in the Phoenix area is preparing to live another four years with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who over the past few years has intensified his fight against undocumented migrants. Arpaio, 80, was reelected Tuesday to a sixth consecutive term with 53 percent of the votes. The controversial Republican sheriff received another mandate despite several pending federal lawsuits accusing his office of engaging in racial profiling against Hispanics. "Unfortunately, we still have part of (state immigration law) SB 1070 in force in Arizona, which is the 'show me your papers' provision, and now we're going to continue...

Petraeus, formerly the commander of U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, the author of the current Army field manual, Princeton Ph.D. and, until last week, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, was forced to resign from the CIA to silence him is far stronger than is the version of events that the Obama administration has given us. The government would have us believe that because the FBI confronted Gen. Petraeus with his emails showing a pattern of inappropriate personal private behavior, he voluntarily departed his job as the country’s chief...

Peters went to the FBI, and the G-men put a wire on him. Peters recorded Bonanno instructing him to destroy any records linking the pair, and Bonanno subsequently "was found guilty of obstructing justice and sentenced to five years in prison -- the first felony conviction in the mob boss' long life of crime."

    After a week of investigating, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office drug suppression task force seized millions of dollars in marijuana. Sheriff Joe Arpaio says three illegal aliens were arrested after deputies found 3,500 pounds of marijuana being transported inside their vehicle. The drugs are estimated to be worth $2 million, according to deputies. Sheriff Arpaio says, "More and more illegal aliens are smuggling drugs into the country and it's getting increasingly dangerous for my deputies.

    The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) is not an elected official. The title doesn't come with a paycheck. Michelle Obama, however, has turned it into an exercise in imperial excess, spending taxpayers' dollars as though the Treasury were her cookie jar. There was an old radio spot that ran in the South, when I lived there some 20 years ago. The commentary always started with, “Ya know what makes me sick?” That’s probably not a great way to grab a breakfast-time audience, but ya know, I’m almost there with the FLOTUS.

    There has been no shortage of commentary on the impact of the Hispanic vote on the election outcome. Much of the Republican post-election commentary has focused on the failure of Romney to gather a sufficient share of Hispanic support. Much of the discussion is confused. Two factors decide the impact of the Hispanic vote. One is the percentage of Hispanics who vote Republican. The other is how many Hispanic voters there are. Empirically, variation in numbers was far more important than variation in voting patterns. Romney did not lose because he lost the Hispanic vote in some unusual fashion. Rather,...

    Reports about the game-changing nature of the country’s natural gas reserves, newly recoverable with the combination of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, seem to come out every week. But Marc S. Lipschultz, global head of energy and infrastructure for KKR & Co., says the ability to reap the economic benefits are far from assured. Among the key challenges, he said, are smoothing the boom-and-bust cycles in gas prices and mitigating the environmental impacts of gas drilling that limit social acceptance. Lipschultz estimates gas production could increase by 44 percent between 2011 and 2035. But there’s a pricetag. He says it...

She announced this week the launch of a Royal Commission to investigate offences involving religious and non-religious organisations and insisted it will examine not only abuse but the role of institutions in covering it up.

We’ve got Iran firing on one of our drones a week before the election. We’ve got the White House either ignorant of or covering up all of this. Who is minding the store? Everywhere we look we see the rank incompetence or corruption of the people who...

    Persecution of Catholics is facilitated by internal dissent, Archbishop Carlo Vigano stresses in a speech at the University of Notre Dame.SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has told the University of Notre Dame that there is a concrete “menace” to religious liberty in the United States that is advancing in part because some influential Catholic public figures and university professors are allied with those opposed to Church teaching. “Evidence is emerging which demonstrates that the threat to religious freedom is not solely a concern for non-democratic and totalitarian regimes,” he said. “Unfortunately, it is surfacing with greater regularity...

    Tebowmania may have captivated the NFL last season, but Tim Tebow’s new team doesn’t believe that he’s a savior. More than a dozen Jets players and members of the organization painted a sobering picture of the player who rallied the Broncos to the playoffs last season. In their eyes, he’s simply not very good. The prevailing thought in the organization is that Tebow is nothing more than a gimmick. “He’s terrible,” a defensive starter told the Daily News. Although Tebow told The News last month that he has made improvements as a quarterback over the past few months, none of...

    "They fear that the development and building of People's (community) Organizations is the building of a vast power group which may fall prey to a fascistic demagogue who will seize leadership and control and turn an organization into a Frankenstein's monster against democracy." - Saul Alinsky responding to his critics, Reveille for Radicals; p. 199 When Saul Alinsky began building his community-organization movement in 1930s Chicago, observers were watching Alinsky with one eye, while with the other eye observing the building of communist and fascist movements in Europe. It wasn't hard then to see in Alinsky's programs at home, elements...

    At the close of 2011, Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act for the year 2012. In it are what some constitutional experts consider to be some of the greatest constitutional violations in American history. At issue are sections 1021 and 1022 which, in essence, create a new power for the federal government to “indefinitely detain” – without due process – any person. Indefinitely. That’s little different than kidnapping.
