    Extortion: Radical Democrat activist groups stand to collect millions from Attorney General Eric Holder's record $17 billion deal to settle alleged mortgage abuse charges against Bank of America. Buried in the fine print of the deal, which includes $7 billion in soft-dollar consumer relief, are a raft of political payoffs to Obama constituency groups. In effect, the government has ordered the nation's largest bank to create a massive slush fund for Democrat special interests.

    Under President Obama, the United States is “a nation governed by fear,” the American Civil Liberties Union says in an open letter that echoes the criticisms Obama has made of George W. Bush’s national security policies. “[W]e say as Americans that we are tired of seeing liberty sacrificed on the altar of security and having a handful of lawmakers decide what we should and should not know,” the ACLU writes in a statement circulated to grassroots supporters and addressed to Obama. “We are tired of living in a nation governed by fear instead of the principles of freedom and liberty...

    Dancing with the devil… The Washington Times reports the following: Sen. Mark Kirk says the real driving force behind the gun deal that was hatched by bipartisan work was booze and boat retreats. The Illinois Republican said to reporters that visits to the Black Tie, a yacht owned by Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, played a large role in the Democratic-Republican come-together over background checks and other legislation related to gun control, Roll Call reported. “You guys really ought to go out to National Harbor and see the Black Tie, which has been much of the reason for much of the...

    Over 100 members of Congress appear to share the concerns of a former Army general who has sounded the alarm over efforts by the Obama Administration to push through the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, or ATT. As WND reported, retired Lt. Gen. William Boykin earlier this year, in a video in which he claimed Obama was leading America down the path of a quiet, Marxist revolution, blasted the ATT, also known as the small arms treaty, saying it would regulate private gun ownership. “There has been a decree by the administration by the president and the secretary of state...
  • Democrats believe payroll tax victory bolsters chances of taking House

    Democrats believe their chances of recapturing the House have improved significantly after what was widely seen as a GOP meltdown in the payroll tax debate. Democrats believe the messy fight has helped narrow the advantage Republicans have traditionally held on tax policy. Democrats have long espoused populist tax policy, with mixed results in recent years. Democratic strategists think that is about to change as high unemployment rates have given new traction to their proposals, which Republicans dismiss as class warfare. Tad Devine, a Democratic strategist, said he believes Democrats can recapture the House in part because of growing public resentment...

    "Army doctor Lt. Col. Terry Lakin believes Obama does not meet the constitutional requirements to be president and commander-in-chief, because he believes (incorrectly) that Obama wasn't born in the United States."

    Powell will try to win the seat that Rangel took from his father Harlem State Assemblyman Adam Clayton Powell IV may challenge U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel in a race for the congressional seat Rangel has held for nearly 40 years but once belonged Powell’s father. Powell, 47, said he is launching an exploratory committee to see whether he has any chances to win the seat if he runs against the embattled Rangel. "It's no secret I'm interested," Powell said. He has been fund raising since 2004 for a campaign that has yet materialized. He is the son of the late...

    I wrote this to my Senators and Congressmen one year ago... Amazing that it still applies today... DO NOT ENFORCE THE LAW, CREATE ANOTHER GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRACY May 25, 2006 Dear Congressman: Do not enforce American Immigration Law, Congressman… Create ‘The Crisis’—then offer a “new” comprehensive system to reward law breakers… Provided ‘guest’ workers accept a “non-corruptible” identification card—a national I.D.—which after a short time, ALL Americans will be required to carry. This being the outcome the federal government wanted from the beginning—why they ignored the laws and created ‘The Crisis’ in the first place: to provide the rational for creating...
