  • Disappointed in Obama, New Black Panthers openly consider ‘the bullet’

    The small but vocal New Black Panther Party is woefully disappointed in President Barack Obama, and is openly implying that the best way to reach its goals is no longer through “the ballot” but through “the bullet.” In the Spring edition of the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) newspaper — cover reading “The Ballot or The Bullet: which way for black people?” — NBPP Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz breaks down the presidential election, concluding the Democratic Party is the “institutional pimp of Black peoples and the Black Nation” and that Obama has “been a real disappointment.” “Black peoples are the...
  • Swinging at Bain, Obama Ignores What Private Equity Is

    Bain Capital has been used as a political weapon against Mitt Romney since 1994, but now his opponents might be rethinking ads about attacking him for his time at the private-equity firm as the ads are being criticized by some Democrats as well as Republicans. President Obama planned to set the political tone for the week with a new ad about an Indiana company that was bought by Bain and then shuttered, as the firm made millions of dollars and workers lost jobs. The biggest problem with the online video: Even Democrats say it attacks the business of private equity...
  • COMMENTARY: Recallistas turn to cannibalism!

    The Wisconsin Reporter ^ | 5-21-12 | Kevin Binversie
    Recall supporters have turned their attention from character assassination to cannibalism. With recent poll numbers suggesting they’ll lose their 15-month campaign to take down Gov. Scott Walker, the recallistas have begun to eat their own. When the blaming and hating is done — when the smoke clears and the sun dawns June 6 — Walker likely will be the last man standing. In Wisconsin, the blaming began last week when liberal Washington Post blogger Greg Sargent posted what he called an exclusive on the recall race. An “unnamed top Wisconsin Democrat” was “furious” the Democratic National Committee would not pony...
  • Obama raised most from private equity, hedge funds in 2008

    Obama raised most from private equity, hedge funds in 2008 By Jonathan Easley - 05/22/12 09:52 AM ET President Obama raised far more cash from hedge fund and private equity donors than any other candidate in the 2008 election cycle. According to an analysis by the nonprofit group Open Secrets, Obama took in nearly $3.5 million from large private-equity donors that year — nearly twice what his general-election rival, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), pocketed. The data bring into focus the thin line Obama must walk in attacking presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s background in the industry, which has sparked...
  • Romney poll surge scares Democrats

    It’s not getting a lot of attention, but the end of the embattled GOP primary fight has led to a broad poll bounce for Mitt Romney that is starting to scare Obama advisors. To name a few: -- CBS News/New York Times has Romney over President Obama by a margin of 46 percent to 43 percent. In their new poll Romney also now leads among women by 2 percent and has seized independents 43 percent to 36 percent. -- Gallup has Romney’s favorability rating jumping from 39 percent in February to 50 percent. Among independents he’s seen an 11 percent...
  • Furious Chris Matthews Explodes: Cory Booker 'Betrayed' and 'Sabotaged' Obama

    A furious Chris Matthews on Monday railed against Cory Booker for his "betrayal" and "sabotage" of fellow Democrat Barack Obama. A bewildered Matthews couldn't understand why the Newark mayor would "trash" the President. Howling over Booker's break from party loyalty, Matthews snarled, "... I think [this] was an act of sabotage. Whatever the intention was, [Booker] was trashing the entire Obama campaign of the summer." The Hardball host then played a clip of Obama "trying to defend himself against what looked like something like a betrayal." [MP3 audio here.] Talking to liberals David Corn and Howard Fineman, Matthews attempted to...

    Sovereignty: Even if he's not re-elected, the president hopes to leave behind a treaty giving a U.N. body veto power over the use of our territorial waters and to which we'd be required to give half of our offshore oil revenue. The Law Of The Sea Treaty (LOST) has been lurking in the shadows for decades. Like the Kyoto Protocol that pretended to be an effort to save the earth from the poisoned fruit of the Industrial Revolution, LOST pretends to be an effort to protect the world's oceans from environmental damage and remove it as a cause of potential...

    The New York Times ^ | 5/20/2012 | Paul Krugman
    Sometimes it’s hard to explain why we need strong financial regulation — especially in an era saturated with pro-business, pro-market propaganda. So we should always be grateful when someone makes the case for regulation more compelling and easier to understand. And this week, that means offering a special shout-out to two men: Jamie Dimon and Mitt Romney. I’ll come back shortly to the troubles at JPMorgan Chase, the bank Mr. Dimon runs. First, however, let me talk about Mr. Romney, whose remarks about those troubles were so off-point that they constitute a teachable moment. Here’s what the presumptive Republican presidential...

    PJ Media ^ | May 21, 2012 | Thomas R. Spencer
    Election integrity falls off the map under Eric Holder. On October 9, 2011, a New York Times headline read: “The Myth of Vote Fraud.” According to the editorial board, the wave of new laws passed in 19 states, designed to fight fraud at the ballot box, was merely another Republican retro-stunt to keep minorities from voting. Immediately, Democrats adopted the headline as a great election tactic. So it was no coincidence that in preparation for the 2012 election the NAACP announced that there is no vote fraud in America. It petitioned the United Nations Human Rights Council — composed of...

    Congratulations,college grads. Four years ago,you handed Democrats the margin of victory needed to win the White House. For the past four years,you have been able to insulate yourselves from the ramifications of that choice. With room-and-board and health care financed by mom and dad,there’s been little reason to worry about things such as rising gas prices,falling home values or a stagnant job market. Thank God!This has left you plenty of time to get outraged about really important issues like paying for Sandra Fluke’s birth control! But when the parties are over and the graduation gowns are put away,you are in...
  • After 16 Months of Letters, Reports and Subpoenas, Will We Ever Get Truth on Fast and Furious?

    05/21/2012 4:53:03 AM PDT · by BO Stinkss · 12 replies ^ | May 21, 2012 | M Catharine Evans
    House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy joined Rep. Darrell Issa last week to once again demand Attorney General Eric Holder come clean about his involvement in Operation Fast and Furious. The Republican leadership signed a May 18 letter asking more questions of the US Attorney General who has refused to provide subpoenaed documents to congressional investigators. The back-and-forth correspondence over the past 16 months may in the end provide a useful record of an Obama administration program which led to hundreds of murders. But for now the letters are little more than posturing...

    Federal courts could soon decide a fight between Congress and Attorney General Eric Holder on the Operation Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. If Republicans persevere, this is a battle that Holder should lose in what would be a humiliating defeat for President Barack Obama.  Most Americans have now heard that our government allowed drug cartels to illegally smuggle thousands of guns from the U.S. into Mexico. The National Rifle Association has relentlessly pursued the White House and Department of Justice (DOJ) about Fast and Furious for over a year, and the massive gun-rights organization has only increased its focus in...

    MSCO CEO Mark Stevens spoke last Tuesday at The Heritage Foundation’s Bloggers Briefing about the recent threats made to his company as a result of the supposed “war on women.” Stevens’ global marketing company, MSCO, came under fire after his decision to remain an advertiser for Rush Limbaugh, despite Limbaugh’s controversial comment about Georgetown student Sandra Fluke. MSCO employees—specifically Stevens and the female demographic—began receiving specific, violent threats in an effort to drive Stevens out of business immediately after his decision to continue supporting Limbaugh’s show. Stevens appeared on multiple talk shows counteracting the threats and promising he would do...

The Wall Street Journal reports: “With little more than two weeks until Wisconsin’s gubernatorial recall election, some Democratic and union officials quietly are expressing fears that they have picked a fight they won’t win and that could leave lingering injuries.” No one is bothering to claim a Scott Walker victory would be insignificant:The election has taken on significance beyond Wisconsin state politics: Organized labor sees the battle as a major stand against GOP efforts to scale back collective-bargaining rights for public-sector workers, as Mr. Walker did...
  • Hillary Clinton Maintains Near Record-High Favorability

    PRINCETON, NJ -- Americans remain nearly as positive toward Hillary Clinton today as they have ever been over the past 20 years. The secretary of state's favorable rating remains at 66%, within one percentage point of her record-high rating in late 1998. Her unfavorable rating of 29% ties her record low since 1993. Gallup's latest update of Clinton's favorable rating is from a USA Today/Gallup poll conducted May 10-13. Her 66% favorable rating, the same as she received in March 2011 and February 1999, is one point lower than the 67% high she reached in December 1998 just after her...

    That’s the headline on yesterday's AP story by Charles Babington. The headline appeared on the main Yahoo page, which is far more heavily trafficked than any newspaper, and was picked up, based on a Google News search, by several hundred newspapers.*snip* The idea was to attribute plausibility to what is in fact a laughable suggestion. In order to effect the economy, Republicans would have to 1) enact policies that would do one or the other, or 2) block the Democrats from enacting policies that would do one or the other. The Republicans haven’t enacted anything since the Democrats took control...

  • Student Loan Payroll Tax Increase: Another Attack on Small Business

    05/21/2012 11:34:19 AM PDT · by TribalPrincess2U · 15 replies ^ | May 8, 2012 | By Curtis Dubay
    President Obama is campaigning heavily for Congress to prevent the lapsing of a special low-interest rate on student loans. Specifically, unless deferred, the interest rate will rise from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent on federal Stafford student loans issued after July 1, says Curtis Dubay, a senior policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D–NV) has proposed to offset the cost of continuing to subsidize these loans by raising taxes on small businesses to the tune of $9 billion over 10 years.[2] This is the latest in a series of tax increases on small businesses pursued...

For reality is like a jigsaw puzzle: If too many pieces (little pictures) are wrong, you’ll never be able to assemble them and see the big picture. The result is dislocation from reality. What follows are 10 big lies that have gained currency — and the actual truth behind them. 1.
