    Sultan Knish ^ | Monday, March 26, 2012 | Daniel Greenfield
    For a man so in love with the technology of image, the camera, the microphone and the teleprompter, the leader of the increasingly less free world has a natural tendency to put a little too much faith in it. This is the second time that an open microphone has let Obama down, the first time it recorded him stabbing an ally in the back, the second time it recorded him stabbing a few dozen more in the back. Medvedev, whose bosom buddy just managed to cling to power with a stolen election and brutal suppression of protests, surely understands how...
  • Kids All Over America Are Being Put On Buses During School Terror Drills

    All over the United States, school children are being taken out of their classrooms, put on buses and sent to "alternate locations" during terror drills. These exercises are often called "evacuation drills" or "relocation drills" and they are more than a little disturbing. Sometimes parents are notified in advance where the kids are being taken and sometimes they are only told that the children are being taken to an "undisclosed location". In the years since 9/11 and the Columbine school shootings, there has been a concerted effort to make school emergency drills much more "realistic" and much more intense. Unfortunately,...

    BizPacReview.com ^ | March 27, 2012 | Michael Dorstewitz
    Last month, the grossly exaggerated testimony of a 30-year-old Georgetown law student delivered before an ad hoc congressional committee quite blatantly attempted to expand the legal definition of the term, “denial of services.” When the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services held that all employers, even religious institutions, must provide health insurance coverage for contraceptive services, including those aiding abortions, to its employees, it set off a firestorm within the Roman Catholic community. The department’s mandate directly conflicts with the church’s 2,000-year history celebrating the sanctity of life. When health officials issued their decision, U.S. Rep. Darrell E. Issa,...

    Seoul-Looking for a signed copy of President Barack Obama's "The Audacity of Hope"? In Korean? (The book, not the signature). Too late. Three business people, five students, a teacher and a North Korean refugee in South Korea won copies of Obama's personal political manifesto as a prize for submitting questions to the president in advance of his visit to Seoul for an international nuclear summit. The top three questioners to the "Ask President Obama" competition also got actual replies from the president, including a rare reflection on the favorite speeches that he has delivered....

    The separatist New Black Panther Party, described as a hate group by a civil rights organization, is standing by its $10,000 bounty offer for the capture of the man who shot Trayvon Martin, despite vehement opposition from, among others, Martin's family. "We're here to make them do their job," organizer Mikhail Muhammad said on Monday. "We will support Trayvon's family, but we are military." Martin was shot February 26 by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer, while walking back from a Sanford, Florida, convenience store. Zimmerman, according to friends and his attorney, Craig Sonner, said he killed Martin, 17,...

    Black history may soon find that it is defined by one line of demarcation: BB (Before Obama) and AB (After Obama). There might even be some historical reference to the volatile period called DB (During Obama), where an archive will contain images of black people going to blows over where our community should be positioned on the Obama issue. The Obama presidency, unfortunately, has done more to divide black leadership than any event in the last 100 years. There are those who’ve chosen to side with the winning team, refusing to critique the Obama Administration on even the tiniest issues....

But if you want broader success (and I do) then the only option is to set aside those instincts and do the smart thing instead of the thing that feels best at the time. We all must do it sometimes. We’re conservatives after all. We aren’t some childish liberals only worried about intentions and sentiment. We are interested in actually accomplishing things and the only...

Unlike rich Norway and Denmark, where car consumption is heavily discouraged, the car producing nation of Sweden (where I live) could only be rivalled by Switzerland. It shows in Swedish stats on car sales. The average Swede could afford a car the average citizen of no other nation could afford.

    The DeKalb Sheriff's Office Fugitive Squad Members arrested the New Black Panther Party's Chief of Staff, Hashim Nzinga, for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Nzinga, 49, recently announced that the New Black Panther Party is placing a $10,000 reward for the capture of George Zimmerman, the shooter of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office said Nzinga was in possession of an FN Herstal 5.7x28 handgun. An investigation revealed that he pawned the gun at a Stone Mountain Pawn Shop on Rockbridge Road. According to the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office, Nzinga's convictions of felony deposit account...

    Check out what a federal appellate court just determined when striking down a Texas town’s law banning illegal aliens from renting housing; the “unconstitutional” measure has no other purpose than the exclusion of illegal aliens, which complicates immigration issues and relations with other countries, particularly Mexico. It may seem unbelievable, but read the ruling for yourself. It was issued recently by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit against the Dallas suburb of Farmers Ranch. A three-judge panel from the New Orleans-based court further clarified that the “sole purpose” of an ordinance banning illegal immigrants from renting...

    Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Institute for Individual Rights sees a troubling pattern of expanding government that causes great injury to individual rights and the ability of our economy to produce products and services that people want. In addition, the damage done by the Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley regulatory schemes has caused immeasurable damage to America and its markets. Companies are now avoiding the US markets as a result. Therefore, we can never emphasize enough, and we must constantly engage ourselves in the debate of government expansion versus the individual's rights.

    More teachers nationwide are unsatisfied with their jobs and more are likely to leave the profession, according to the MetLife Survey of the American Teacher. The survey, which was released this month, reports that one of the “most dramatic findings” was that teachers have the lowest level of job satisfaction in more than two decades and there was a large increase in the number of teachers who are likely to leave the teaching profession. However, the sheer number of applicants for teaching jobs in Michigan casts question on just how miserable a profession teaching can be. For example, Davison Community...

    The success of Egypt’s “Arab Spring” rolled on to yet another triumph as that country’s parliament renounced the possibility that it could ever be an ally of Israel. Instead, Israel was declared Egypt’s “number one enemy.” Following this development, President Obama announced the restoration of US military aid to Egypt. “Israel is a very powerful country in that region,” Obama explained. “If Egypt is to have any chance against them it is imperative that we extend as much military assistance as we can.” The President acknowledged that his decision “probably won’t go over well with some of Israel’s more strident...

Andy and I also discussed how Apple has become the tail, wagging the stock market's dog. As the most valuable company...

    Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan released his budget last week. At first blush, it appeared to be a substantial move in the right direction. It cut spending while decreasing taxation. But the reality is that his budget completely misses the mark. It is still a redistributionist plan that forcibly takes money from the producers and almost as lavishly bestows it upon the beneficiaries. This budget takes less and consequently gives less. In the final analysis, the budget doesn't go nearly far enough to help restore confidence in the rapidly deteriorating status quo. A fiat currency that can be created by the...

Claim 3: "Illegal drugs are illegal because they are harmful." Fact: The legal drugs alcohol and tobacco are legal despite being harmful. Claim: Drug use can be deadly, far more deadly than alcohol. Although alcohol is used by seven times...

    During campaign season Democratic politicians, including then Senator Obama, denounced US military efforts during the Bush years, yet now the same democratic politicians who denounced the policy are pressing for its continuation. Furthermore those politicians insist that the multicultural nation building would provide success but in fact the attacks seem to be increasing. Although the war in Afghanistan has gone on for ten years, two thirds of the causalities have occurred during President Obama's three years as Commander in Chief...

    President Obama went on the offensive against criticism of his “green” energy approach. “There are some who would have the American people believe that the failure of the Solyndra Corporation is somehow my fault,” Obama said. “At best, it is a shared responsibility. True, the idea that we should promote clean energy was mine. Blame me for wanting to save the planet.” “But it was Congress that appropriated the money,” Obama continued. “Without this appropriation my Department of Energy would not have had and money to hand out to firms like Solyndra. Blame Congress for enabling my Administration to climb...

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 3-26-2012 | MOTUS
    More than 60 of Obama's biggest campaign donors have visited the White House more than once for meetings with top advisers, holiday parties or state dinners, a review by The Associated Press has found. What’s the big deal? It’s legal (in D.C. morality has always been severable from legality) and a time honored precedent. Why, Big Dog actually held lotteries for the Lincoln bedroom suite during highly desirable holiday bookings... In the meantime, here’s something I thought you wouldn’t want to miss; apparently everybody feels free to criticize Big Guy while he’s out of the country. Did you see what...

    Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan will be in clear violation of federal law by virtue of her decision to hear the Affordable Care Act case coming before the Supreme Court today. Upon joining the other justices to hear oral arguments she will fracture the federal statute which DEMANDS that judges recuse themselves from participation in a case “where he has served in governmental employment and in such capacity participated as council, adviser or material witness concerning the proceeding or expressed an opinion concerning the merits of the particular case in controversy.” (1) And according to emails obtained by the Media...
  • Supreme Court Skeptical On Obama’s Defense Of ObamaCare

    Flopping Aces ^ | 03-26-12 | Curt
    Even some of the liberal judges appear skeptical about Obama's defense of ObamaCare: On the first day of oral arguments in the case challenging President Obama’s national health care law, justices seemed skeptical that the individual mandate should be considered a tax — one of the main consitutional defenses being offered for the law. To be clear, today’s 90 minutes of oral arguments did not concern the underlying merits of the case, but whether an 1876 law called the Anti-Injunction Act bars the Court from ruling on the suit at this time. Under the Anti-Injunction Act, people cannot challenge a...

    Rawhide! It was the name of a great TV Western of the 1960s, starring Clint Eastwood. But it was also the secret service code-name for President Ronald Reagan. As an actor who had once starred in Westerns (host of and guest appearances in Death Valley Days, guest appearances in Wagon Train and Zane Grey Theater, Cattle Queen of Montana, The Last Outpost, Santa Fe Trail - where he played George Custer, ...), President Reagan quite liked that code-name, Rawhide. But not long after being sworn in as the 40th President of the United States, Rawhide was in for a rough...

    U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow was named “Porker of the Month” for March by a national tax watchdog organization for proposing to extend federal subsidies for green energy. Citizens Against Government Waste tabbed Sen. Stabenow, a Lansing Democrat, because she proposed an amendment to the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act, that would have “extended federal subsidies for green energy, including alternative fueling stations, biofuels, refined coal, energy-efficient appliances, and wind power, among others,” according to a CAGW press release. The CAGW stated that many of the extensions Stabenow proposed were tied to the $787 billion American Recovery...

    ObamaCare has a date with the United States Supreme Court this week, on its 2nd Anniversary of its signing. Republican US Senate candidate for the state of Pennsylvania, Sam Rohrer, is conducting a National Talk Show information campaign to draw attention to the foibles of the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. “Obama Care”) that President Obama signed the Obama Care law on March 23, 2010...
