    If it hasn’t happened already, Big Hollywood will end up like teachers unions who shilled for Obamacare but that end up getting a waiver to protect themselves from the same great things they lobbied to force on everybody else. In the meantime, the Hollywood left continues to pathetically pedal a bicycle that broke its chain months ago: (VIDEO)

    "Hawaii Governor accused of suborning election fraudATTORNEY/RESEARCHER HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON CORRUPTION IN THE ALOHA STATE FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS (May 10, 2010) — The Post & Email has completed a follow-up interview of Attorney Andy Martin upon his return from a trip to Hawaii during which he filed a lawsuit against Hawaii officials, charging them with concealing evidence under the guise of “executive privilege.” Mr. Martin also revealed his plans to become involved in the Lt. Col. Lakin case as well as what his additional research yielded. MRS. RONDEAU: I read your news release of May 6 in which...

    I'm thinking that Bob Lutz, truthteller, is not long for the payroll of General Motors. After all, he is a Global Warming Denier, who, if this were the time of Henry VIII, would be burned at the stake as a heretic. But for now, it is nice to see at least one auto executive call BS on the Enviro-kooks.
  • Obama Intent on Running Out the Clock

    Barack Obama looks like the quarterback of a football team intent on running out the clock to preserve its lead in a championship game. By spurning future debates, he seeks to prevent giving rival Hillary Clinton a way to change the course of the game. He is playing it safe to avoid a mistake that could erase the small but firm margin he built through the first three quarters. As football fans can attest, that's often risky strategy. It has left him on the defensive, trying to contain the recurring flap over the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and fend off rivals'...

    The names are floating around. Who will the president pick to succeed Sandra Day O’Connor? Since he did such a superb job with John Roberts — finding a candidate to whom it was hard to muster vehement objection from anyone — defenses are up. Uberconservatives think Bush owes them one. They’re waiting for a candidate they can truly trust to finish off the dreaded precedents on reproductive rights and equality of opportunity. They want another Scalia or Thomas. Liberal Democrats are wary. Roberts was made of Teflon and they’ll have to pronounce on yet another candidate before they can test...

    Sen. Arlen Specter, who set off a firestorm of controversy last week among conservatives who interpreted certain remarks as a warning to President Bush not to nominate pro-life judicial candidates, pledged yesterday to treat the president's choices fairly and quickly.     Mr. Specter, a Pennsylvania Republican next in line to lead the Senate Judiciary Committee, said his earlier remarks had been taken out of context and he would not attempt to impose a "litmus test."     Karl Rove, senior White House political adviser, said Mr. Bush has been assured that all court nominees will be treated fairly.  "Senator Specter is a...

    Putin: Ally or Terrorist? by William F. Jasper Counting Vladimir Putin as an ally against terrorism ignores his career in the murderous KGB/FSB and his ongoing support for terrorist regimes and organizations. ‘‘Lena Goncharuk, aged 38, said that she was the only one to survive out of a group of six who were ordered out of the cellar where they had been hiding and shot at point blank range. Resting in her hospital bed, her voice barely rising above a whisper, she said she had survived only by pretending to be dead." So reported Paul Wood from the Chechen border...

    Of the many issues competing for attention in this new and defining year, one is of a unique order of magnitude: President Bush's decision to go to war in Iraq. The facts demonstrate how dishonest that decision was. As former Treasury secretary Paul H. O'Neill recently confirmed, the debate over military action began as soon as President Bush took office. Some felt Saddam Hussein could be contained without war. A month after the inauguration, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell said: "We have kept him contained, kept him in his box." The next day, he said tellingly that Hussein "has...

    SEATTLE - Microsoft plans to shift more of its technical-support jobs overseas in the next year, acknowledging the move could mean hundreds of layoffs in three U.S. states. In April, Microsoft opened a new customer-support center in Bangalore, India. As it grows, the Bangalore center could take over more of the customer-service and technical-support work now handled in Issaquah, Wash.; Charlotte, N.C.; and Las Colinas, Texas, Microsoft acknowledged Monday. The company has about 800 full-time employees at each site. It's unclear how many of those employees would be affected, said Microsoft spokeswoman Stacy Drake. Microsoft plans to hire 150 employees...

    DAILY NOTEBOOK.... The Iconoclast ( The Never-ending Myths of Racism In Contemporary America........ October 22, 2002: Years ago, the pioneering anti-feminist iconoclast, Christina Hoff Sommers, wrote a series of articles detailing how a number of feminist myths about male "oppression" in our society could be tracked back to purely fictitious charges or doctored statistics repeated a sufficient number of times that they took on a life (or "truth") of their own. Today the same myth-making racket is being practised by the multiculturalism crowd, constantly disseminating mythical tales about nefarious acts of blatant discrimination and bias against blacks or members of...
