    We are one week into Mitt Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan. A number of polls are coming out telling a variety of stories about what it means. But one thing is clear: Barack Obama’s campaign has had several significant strategic failures this summer. And they failed to define Paul Ryan out of the gate with their Mediscare tactics. And they failed to define Mitt Romney this summer with a huge campaign spend. The Obama campaign hoped to use the summer to define Mitt Romney. They spent $25 million in May ads. Obama spent $58m in June. What effect did it...

    The Truth about Guns ^ | October 1, 2011 | Robert Farago
    When you’ve got bad news, release it on Friday. The White House followed that dictum yesterday by surrendering carefully selected documents to Congressional investigators exploring the link between Operation Fast and Furious and the Obama Administration. CBS has obtained records that prove that then-ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix office (and Fast and Furious coordinator) Bill Newell and then-White House National Security Staffer Kevin O’Reilly were schmoozing about F&F by phone and email. [Click here for the pdf.] The White House said the two men never discussed the fact that ATF guns were walking. Riiiiight. That’s why O’Reilly’s...
  • The Case for Ending the EPA

    The New American ^ | Friday, 23 September | Selwyn Duke
    In the Republican presidential debate last evening, some of the candidates passionately stated that the Environmental Protection Agency should be eliminated. It’s a position that sounds strange to some ears. As a respondent in a Fox News focus group said after the debate, and this is a paraphrase, “This all sounds good when you fixate on the minutia, but we can’t just end the EPA.” This attitude is no surprise. The one exception to the law that it’s easier to destroy than create is big government programs and bureaucracies. Once they’re the status quo and people become accustomed to their...

    Driving from California to East Texas, my daughter and grandson were 90 miles into the Lone Star state when traffic was stopped at a road block just outside the little town of Sierra Blanca. Drug-sniffing dogs worked down the line of cars. Under treatment for a medical condition for which her California doctor prescribed medical marijuana, my daughter had a small amount in her luggage in the trunk. The dogs immediately sniffed it. She showed the police her medical authorization, but California law didn’t apply in Texas. She and my grandson were arrested, taken to jail and put into a...

    On Fox "What's Happening" 10/01/2010 (9:45 am Pst) There was a report about the White House Rating hundreds of government programs that are failures by any measure. The programs are rated from 0% to 100% effectiveness. One of them increased from $660,000 to $147,000,000 in ten years! and it has a rating of 8% (!) Most rational taxpayers would rate anything under 50% as a failure, a waste of money and the reason why the country is bankrupt and our children and grandchildren will inherit a debt which is literally impossible to pay down. These are all from what is...

    The newly-released mind-boggling, record-smashing $3,400,000,000,000 federal budget invites plenty of opportunity to debate the merits of incurring more and more debt that will drown the next generation of Americans. Never has it been possible to spend your way out of debt. So... let the debate begin. Included in the debate process will be opportunities for our president to deliberate internally the wisdom of this debt explosion, along with other economic, military and social issues facing our country. Our president will discuss these important issues with Democrat leaders and those within his inner circle. I would ask the president to show...

    Utah's industrial banking industry has a new and formidable enemy -- President Barack Obama. As part of the president's plan for regulatory reform of the nation's financial services industry, which was unveiled earlier this week in an 85-page white paper, Obama is calling for the elimination of industrial bank charters and wants them all shut down within five years. If successful, the president's plan could deal a hammer blow to Utah's economy, which is the home of 25 industrial banks that employ thousands of the state's residents and hold assets valued in excess of $168 billion. Utah's industrial banking community...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 11, 2008 – A neighborhood formerly overrun by al Qaeda in Baghdad’s Rashid district has been cleared of the enemy and is starting to thrive again, a U.S. commander in Iraq said.

    WASHINGTON - Congressional Democrats promise to "eliminate" Osama bin Laden and ensure a "responsible redeployment of U.S. forces" from Iraq in 2006 in an election-year national security policy statement. In the position paper to be announced Wednesday, Democrats say they will double the number of special forces and add more spies, which they suggest will increase the chances of finding al-Qaida's elusive leader. They do not set a deadline for when all of the 132,000 American troops now in Iraq should be withdrawn.

    SACRAMENTO - Corrections officials, scrapping a key reform of California's troubled parole system, will no longer let parole violators receive drug treatment or home detention as an alternative to prison, it was reported Saturday. Authorities decided to end such diversion programs and return violators to prison starting Monday because there was no evidence the lesser sanctions work, the Los Angeles Times said, citing a government memo. The policy was pushed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's administration as a way to rehabilitate ex-convicts and to save money by reducing the prison population. But the approach drew criticism from crime victim advocates and...

    During the debate Mr. Kerry accused Mr. Bush of adding to nuclear proliferation by building nuclear bunker busting bombs. He said he would eleminate "all" nuclear proliferation during the next four years. Does Mr. Kerry have in mind standing before the U.N. and proposing the elimination of all nuclear weapons among all nations as a condition for the rogue states to stop their development of bombs? Do we see a replay of the Carter/Kerry 1980's plan to freeze nuclear weapons?

    Wellstone's gone, but the politics of his legacy live on. Democrats have decided to go back to the late 70's and early 80's to "revive" one of their party's dinosaurs - Walter Mondale. "Back to the Future" I guess we can say. Some pundits say Wellstone's death is going to "energize" the Democrats. If that's so, why did they pick Mondale? Simple: Walter Mondale represents everything the Democrats stand for, notably HIGHER TAXES. In 1984 when Mondale ran against President Reagan, he decided he was going to "straight talk" the American Poeple. His platform was simple: "I'm not going to...
