  • Occupy Haight Ashbury

    The "Occupy Wall Street" protesters finally figured out what they want – sorta; their Website lists 13 proposed demands. As a beleaguered taxpayer, conservative and patriotic American, The Stiletto has her own list of demands for President Barack Hussein Obama, Congress and the Supreme Court – her revolution will be televised on C-SPAN: Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by stopping the endless flow of illegal immigrants into our country to work at wages that are not only below a “living wage” – which the brains behind Occupy Wall Street have pegged...
  • The Early Republican Field Is Less Hungersville, More “The Hunger Games”

    The Republican presidential field is starting to look like “ The Hunger Games,” with those who had no fight in them, those who overplayed their hand and those who were undisciplined out of the fight to the finish before the real contest begins. Mitt Romney - a stronger, well-fed combatant - is eager to enter the arena. Alarmed by the alacrity with which at least half a dozen contenders fell by the wayside, some well-heeled spectators are rushing to support him even before they have a chance to size up the other combatants – some of whom are in stealth...
  • THE DAILY BLADE: Obama’s Kin Disown Him (Politically)

    The Stiletto Blog ^ | March 21, 2011 | The Stiletto found 28 living relatives of President Barack Hussein Obama who share a common Irish ancestor on his mother’s side of the family. Now, most of us would be mighty proud that one of our kin made it all the way to the White House. But The Associated Press apparently could not find a blood relation who voted for Obama.

    President Barack Hussein Obama ended the State of the Union address with the ritualistic intonation: “the state of our union is strong.” But if the SOTU is to serve its intended Constitutional purpose, after “congratulating the men and women of the 112th Congress, as well as your new Speaker, John Boehner” and “pray[ing] for the health of our colleague - and our friend - Gabby Giffords, Obama should have begun by telling Congress, “It's no secret the state of our union is under significant duress.” Instead of telling Congress, “Two years after the worst recession most of us have ever known,...

    James Jay Lee, who took three people hostages at the Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Sprints, MD,while wearing "metalic canisters" strapped to his chest and back that he claimed were bombs, was shot dead by SWAT officers when he became agitated after four hours of negotiations and pulled out a handgun.

    A spate of salacious new details about John Edwards’ affair with Rielle Hunter – and his handlers’ desperate, and possibly felonious, attempts at damage control – has become the source of endless talk recently with the publication of the bestselling campaign post-mortem “Game Change” and former campaign aide Andrew Young’s tell-all, “The Politician.” Edwards is just one in a long line of ambitious pols to cheat on his wife, and his affair with Hunter shares a number of interesting parallels with the sex scandals of previous presidents and candidates for the office.

    In a speech at the University of Denver in 2008 just days before the Super Tuesday primaries, then-Senator Barack Obama said: "Democrats will win in November and build a majority in Congress not by nominating a candidate who will unite the other party against us, but by choosing one who can unite this country around a movement for change.” Well, a year into his presidency Obama finds Republicans -- in both houses of Congress -- as well as moderate and independent voters, united against his expensive and unpopular agenda, and he made it clear that the White House is "not...

    President Obama’s speeches are a lot like a Chinese dinner -- Tuesday night's West Point speech on Afghanistan was no exception. They consist of heaping helpings of impressive-sounding but empty phrases (“we will go forward with the confidence that right makes might and with the commitment to forge … a future that represents not the deepest of fears but the highest of hopes”). And an hour later, you’re left wondering what, exactly, he said he would commit to (“The 30,000 additional troops that I'm announcing tonight will … help create the conditions for the United States to transfer responsibility to...

    President Barack Hussein Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize for his contributions to world peace in the two weeks between January 21, 2009, when he was inaugurated into office, and the February 1, 2009 deadline for nominations. Which is to say, nothing. Zero. Nada. Zilch. And nine months into his only term in office, he’s not accomplished a single thing more. With a nod to “Saturday Night Live”:† Has he halted North Korea’s nuclear program? Uh, no.† Has he gotten Iran to abandon its nuclear ambitions? Nope.† Has he stopped the genocide in Darfur? Uh-uh.† Has he achieved peace...

    Considering that communist China is financing $800 billion of the $11.8 trillion government debt incurred by the largest capitalist economy in the world, it is sadly ironic that the Empire State Building -- built during the Great Depression with American steel, a testament to the “can-do” spirit of our nation -- would drape itself in red and yellow lights tonight on September 30, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

    Judith Miller, an adjunct fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a FOX News contributor, was given a tour of Gitmo a couple of weeks ago, and reports that ... the detainees get a level of medical care that few Americans can afford - even if they were covered by “Cadillac” health insurance plans, like members of Congress. ...Assuming the 226 detainees all see a healthcare provider the same number of times a year [each makes] 34 visits [to the medical center] per year – without any co-pays or other out-of-pocket fees.

    The House of Representatives voted along party lines 240 to 179 to issue a symbolic (this is to say, toothless) resolution stating that the august body “disapproves” of Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) interrupting President Barack Hussein Obama’s speech by shouting “You lie!” during the joint session of Congress held on Sept. 9, 2009 ... House guidelines on the rules of debate say it is impermissible to refer to the president as a liar. ... Wilson called the president out for a particular lie about a particular aspect of his health “reform” proposal, and did not suggest that every word out...

    Examining President Barack Hussein Obama’s ubiquity – even when your favorite TV show has not been pre-empted yet again by one of his prime time speeches or press conferences, you can still watch his Public Service Announcement (video link) about national service that gets heavy rotation, even on FOX – an unabashedly worshipful article by Jennifer Senior in New York magazine noted: “Since occupying the White House, Barack Obama has hosted fifteen town-hall meetings; appeared in more than 800 images on the White House Flickr photo-stream; and held four prime-time press conferences, the same number held by George W.

    Skipping over all the flowery bits at the beginning and end of President Barack Hussein Obama’s 48-minute long address to a joint session of Congress on healthcare, what's left is:* Disingenuousness (“We spend one-and-a-half times more per person on health care than any other country, but we aren't any healthier for it” and “The reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally”); * Obfuscation “The public insurance option would have to be self-sufficient and rely on the premiums it collects,” “I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits” and “The plan...

    Is torture un-American? Boston Globe columnist Derrick Jackson lays it on the line: “The more Dick Cheney defends torture, the more we Americans must end our tortured ambivalence. Either we are above using the same interrogation practices that police states use, or we are are not” [sic]. ... Americans have made their feelings on the issue quite clear, but Jackson just can’t handle the truth. He insists that “as Cheney continues to defend the dark side - even without conclusive proof that waterboarding coughed up critical intelligence - he is daring Americans to come out of the shadows to demand...

    Back in January, Hendrik Hertzberg, a senior editor at The New Yorker, confidently opined, “Obama’s transition has unspooled in much the same way his campaign did: smoothly, calmly, and on time.” Mind you, this was almost two weeks after the Richardson debacle. Exactly a month after Hertzberg’s assessment, the New York Times observed: “President Obama blasted through all sorts of speed records pushing a $787 billion economic plan through Congress, arguing it was too urgent to wait. But even after signing it into law Tuesday, he faces another problem: virtually no one is in place at his cabinet departments to...
