    Most people in the US, especially Democrats, believe that the Obama Birther Movement was started by Republicans and or the Tea Party. They believe it is a smear campaign aimed to tarnish the image of their hero of change. But they may be shocked to learn that the Birther Movement was actually started by former President Bill Clinton and Hillary back in 2008. Bettina Viviano was a vice president with Amblin Enterntainment, Steven Spielberg’s company, before launching her own film production company in 1990. In 2008, Viviano was asked to produce a documentary about voter fraud within the Democratic Party....
  • Brazil Stiffs Obama on Oil Deal, Exposing President's Incompetence

    COMMENTARY | President Barack Obama has suffered the second embarrassment over oil imports within the space of a week. Brazil, whose offshore deposits of oil were sought by the Obama administration, has signed contracts with China for the product. According to the Washington Times, Brazilian offshore crude may number about 38 billion barrels. Obama went to Brazil last month to put in a bid for the oil, offering loans and other support to develop the oil in an "environmentally responsible matter," The Hill reported at the time. Republicans criticized that initiative, pointing out Obama has placed roadblocks in the way...
  • Sarah Palin Mocks Obama: I feel Real Change Is Just Up Ahead

    Palin remains a potent force in national politics even after her abrupt resignation as Alaska's governor. Her future political plans - including the possibility of a presidential run in 2012 - remain unclear. She has kept in touch with tens of thousands of her admirers through online social networking tools. She used President Barack Obama's mantra of change to make her political points. "Let's talk about change we can believe in," Palin said. "Friends, a majority of Americans identify as pro life, and thank God for that." She called health care reform a "government takeover" and called on House Speaker...

    President Obama told Californians during a campaign-style town hall meeting on Wednesday that rich people can afford to pay higher taxes in selling his budget plan as an investment in the nation's future. Mr. Obama pushed back on people who say he is overtaxing the nation, saying his tax increases on families earning $250,000 or more a year are reverting to the tax system under former President Bill Clinton. The president added he will pay higher taxes himself as a result. "These folks can afford it. They were rich back in the '90s," he said. "It's not like suddenly they're...

    Conservatives know by now that the dominant liberal media is not just out to criticize Gov. Sarah Palin. They are on a drive to destroy her. But conservatives are missing the reason why. It's not really about defeating John McCain. Running mates do not decide a presidential election. The real reason is the future. Never again will the Left media (New York Times; Washington Post; the networks; Hollywood) allow a young politician to ascend to the leadership of a national conservative movement -- at least not without all-out character assassination. The media have learned their lesson. They generally tolerated the...

To kick off our show tonight, Mr. Obama will give 95% of American working families a tax cut, even though 40% of Americans today don't pay income taxes! How can our star enact such mathemagic? How can he "cut" zero? Abracadabra! It's called a "refundable tax credit." It involves the federal government taking money from those who do pay taxes, and writing...

He did that by repeating a rumor (a false rumor) that a major insurance company was about to go bankrupt. That caused insurance stocks to plunge more than $25 billion. Later, having already demonstrated his idiocy, he demonstrated a majority leader who is unable to use the English language when he explained what he was only trying to say was "conditions in the...

    I prefer to give people the benefit of the doubt.

And by that I have meant that their motives are far less insidious than is our wont to portray them. Whenever I hear a Democrat equating President Bush with Adolf Hitler, I am reminded to resist the urge to retaliate by applying to the opposition party abject maliciousness. It's easier to believe that liberals are more delusional than pernicious....

    So... do you think that Barack Obama's change is a good thing? What about change that resembles Adolph Hitler's SS? The SS grew from a small paramilitary unit to an elite force that served as the Führer's "Praetorian Guard," the Nazi Party's "Shield Squadron" and a force with as much political influence as the regular German armed forces. Built upon the Nazi racial ideology, the SS, under Heinrich Himmler's command, was primarily responsible for the crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Nazis during the Second World War.

The Oil SENSE Act, S. 115, would repeal the authorization in the 2005 Energy Policy Act for the Interior Department to study and inventory how much oil might be available under America's Outer Continental Shelf. Moreover, the bill would prohibit expanded use of 3-D seismic technology to locate and measure offshore oil deposits, even by the oil companies. As columnist Deroy Murdock explains, "Obama's Don't Ask, Don't Drill policy spurns [modern technology] and embraces outdated information gathered with obsolete instruments. This is the audacity of ignorance."

WASHINGTON — Democratic candidate Barack Obama on Saturday backed away from rival John McCain’s challenge for a series of joint appearances before the political conventions, agreeing only to the standard three debates in the fall. In May, when a McCain adviser proposed a series of pre-convention appearances at town hall meetings, Obama said, “I think that’s a great idea.” In summer stumping on the campaign trail, McCain has often noted that Obama had not followed through and joined him in any events. On Saturday, in a letter...

Obama first indicated Friday in an interview with the Palm Beach Post that he would be willing to compromise on his opposition to off-shore drilling, and would consider expanding the current drilling boundaries -- if it was part of a plan to make the country more energy independent by developing more fuel-efficient cars and alternative energy sources.

    Oh, for the love of crumbcake, this is getting so creepy.I have been saying for weeks that Jonah Goldberg's book Liberal Fascism has really helped my understanding of Barack Obama. I have pointed it out in three other posts:Barack Obama is a 1920s-style fascist Early 20th century "progressivism" has returned... Barack Obama: I AM America Every time I do, I think to myself, oh dear, this is going to sound overwrought. I do it anyways, because truth is truth, and the truth is that Barack Obama talks about himself and his plans in the same transcendent, populist, cult-of-personality terms as...

    The conservative-leaning Committee for Justice is trying to rile supporters with a “Top 10” list of things to expect from the Supreme Court should Barack Obama be elected president and appoint his desired justices. CJ Executive Director Curt Levey wrote supporters an email Monday with the words “Obama court is a conservative nightmare” in the subject line. “That very real possibility should frighten conservatives all the more when they consider that 1) by the end of an 8-year Obama presidency, Justices Scalia and Kennedy would be 80 years old, an age most men never reach, and 2) given the damage...

    Here is video of Debra Bartoshevich, the Wisconsin Hillary Clinton Democratic Delegate who was expelled from the Wisconsin delegation for saying she would not support Barack Obama. Ms. Bartoshevich says in this clip that she has chosen to put her country before her party, and that she is "finished with the Democrat Party." It takes a lot of courage for her do what she has done. She is a true patriot for putting the security of her nation ahead of her party identification. Let's hope many other Hillary supporters will do the same. . . (see video)

    “Factually Correct, Not Politically Correct” Obama Author Andy Martin says Barack Obama faces threat of an embarrassing "surge" in the Democratic Party "2008 is proving to be like no other election I have witnessed," says Andy Anti-Obama movement leader Martin says disaffected Democrats are "surging" against Obama in the media and online. (NEW YORK)(July 28, 2008) The "surge" that Senator Barack Obama focuses on is the increased troop presence in Iraq that Senator John McCain uses to embarrass his opponent. Obama opposed the "surge" in Baghdad, said the plan would fail and steadfastly refuses to admit that the policy of...

    We, as parents, are well aware of the importance of our teachers who teach and program our children. We also know how important it is for our children to play with good-thinking children growing up. Sen. Barack Obama has grown up with the teaching of very angry, militant white and black people: the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, William Ayers and Rev. Michael Pfleger. We cannot say we are not affected by teachers who are militant and angry. We know too well that we become like them, and Mr. Obama will run this country in their mindset.

    (Last part of a three-part series) Here is the final installment of the reasons to vote against Barack Obama: * Mr. Obama's irrationality pervades his approach to most issues. It is not just his idea of raising taxes even knowing it will cut government revenue, job growth, and economic vitality. It is not just announcing his Iraq/Afghanistan plans first, and fact-finding and going there second. Consider some of his other proposals. Let's start with his proposals for socialized medicine, and giving everyone the same coverage that members of Congress now get. His plan would include coverage for 10 million illegal...

    As I watched last week’s campaign spectacle, our illustrious American press corps fawning like a bunch of eight year old girls at a Miley Cyrus concert, over the DNC’s empty suit international Messiah on tour, I found myself pondering… I don’t know which I find more disturbing? (a). The fact that Obama is so popular with international socialists who hope to see America knocked off its perch as the last remaining super-power, (b). The fact that he had to rely on beer, brats and a free rock concert in order to create that impression, (c). Or that the crowds were...

Feel free to adapt the following text to write this letter: "We are most fortunate to get our first glimpse of what an Obama presidency will be like, and it is frightening. If you ever questioned whether this far-left candidate would start radically redistributing wealth, UNITED STATES WEALTH, around the world, just consider the Obama-sponsored bill that is before Congress right now.

    Obama has some ambitious ideas for government programs- spend an hour or so browsing through the ISSUES on his website to get an idea of the size and scope of those ideas. There are many programs and ideas found on Obama's website that will worry conservatives. The media doesn't show much interest in the proposed increases of government size and intervention in the lives of citizens under an Obama administration. Still, one would think what Obama said on July 2, in a speech in Chicago,would get their attention: " We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to...
