  • Watch as Canadian Lawmakers Chant for ‘Four More Years’ of Obama

    In a scene unlikely to be replicated in Congress anytime soon, members of the Canadian Parliament gave President Obama repeated standing ovations and chanted “four more years” at the outgoing U.S. Commander in Chief on Wednesday. Obama was visiting Canada for the North American Leaders’ Summit between the U.S. President, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a meeting that has been dubbed variously the “Three Amigos Summit” and “dude-plomacy.” …
  • How Long Does It Take to Tell a President His CIA Director is Under Investigation?

    CNS News ^ | 11/14/2012 | Terence P. Jeffrey
    How long does it take to tell the president that his CIA director is under investigation? Here is the answer Americans are now supposed to believe: longer than it took for the White House to discover that a YouTube video did not inspire the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. In June 2010, President Obama fired Gen. Stanley McChrystal as the U.S. commander in Afghanistan because McChrystal had criticized civilian administration officials in the presence of a writer from Rolling Stone. Obama immediately named Gen. David Petraeus — hero of the Iraq surge — the...

    -snip-. Who is this president and how does he relate to the popular novel? Is he the man-eating tiger, or the potential victim in the little boy named "Pi"? -snip- Like most of Obama's creations (cf. Dreams from My Father), his all-devouring tiger was a composite: a combination of predatory capitalism and rampant greed; and of uncaring and non-interventionist and non-redistributive government. Never mind that this tiger is a total illusion. It is not what produced the subprime housing crisis or the financial meltdown of 2008. -snip- ...winning a second term as president despite the obvious failure of his policies...

    Well it's been about 13 years forgot my initial sign in name, so pretty much from the beginning. Never wanted to write a Free Republic Opus, love reading news stories here and commenting every day. Would rather not go out in anger seems pointless. Then today the owner of the site called me a RINO (I'm not), surrender monkey (not) and told me to write my opus and get out. My sin was fighting with someone who suggested Obama losing in the latest poll is "bad news". I could list all the insanity of what is going on here. I've...

    Heritage Foundation ^ | 3/13/2012 | Mike Brownfield
    If you fly across the country, it’s easy to see signs of America’s ingenuity and productivity — skyscrapers in New York City, steel mills in Pennsylvania, factories in Chicago, farmland in the Great Plains, and the glittering technology of Silicon Valley. But what you can’t see, though it’s very real, is the invisible web of red tape crawling forth from Washington, crisscrossing the landscape, strangling job creators, tying down entrepreneurs, and tangling America’s engine of innovation in a mess of regulations. Under the Obama Administration, those endless miles of government-imposed directives has kept getting longer, as The Heritage Foundation reveals...

    President Gerald R. Ford's Remarks Announcing a Program for the Return of Vietnam Era Draft Evaders and Military Deserters September 16, 1974 Good morning: In my first week as President, I asked the Attorney General and the Secretary of Defense to report to me, after consultation with other Governmental officials and private citizens concerned, on the status of those young Americans who have been convicted, charged, investigated, or are still being sought as draft evaders or military deserters. On August 19, at the national convention of Veterans of Foreign Wars in the city of Chicago, I announced my intention to...

Gov. Lucy Baxley on Wednesday announced her bid for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. "This state is made up of everyday people whose families work hard to provide the necessities of life, who try to afford health care and who try to protect their children from the evils of society," Baxley told about 300 campaign workers and supporters gathered in a...

    They were pelted with snowballs, doused with pepper spray. They were outnumbered by police and by Bush loyalists, drowned out for the most part by the fanfare of the nation's 55th inauguration. The thousands of protesters who took to the streets to oppose President Bush's second swearing-in did succeed on at least one score: No one who came to Washington to celebrate the inauguration yesterday left without encountering them. The biggest disruption apparently occurred late last night, far from the center of inaugural action, in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Northwest Washington. Shortly before midnight, police clad in riot gear...

    GUEST OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR Cambridge, Mass. BY now, most of the people I know should be Canadians. At least that's what they said they'd be if President Bush won re-election. And yet, my unofficial tally suggests that the number of disgruntled Democrats who actually emigrated northward is roughly zero, plus or minus none. November saw more than its share of cursing, wailing and gnashing of teeth in some quarters, but by the middle of December the weeping had largely subsided and most of the people I know were busy buying gifts. With the exception of the junior senator from Massachusetts and...

    President and Mrs. Bush visited the National Archives to view some of our nation's founding documents. In spite of some Senators Behaving Badly (particularly John Kerry and Barbara Boxer), the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted Wednesday to confirm Condoleezza Rice as secretary of state; the nomination now goes to the full Senate for a vote.

    The Ohio delegation to the Electoral College cast its votes for President Bush on Monday, hours after dissident groups asked the state Supreme Court to review the outcome of the state's presidential race. The 20 GOP electors voted unanimously for Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. "The vast majority of people understand this election is over," said Gov. Bob Taft, who was at the electors' voting session in the state Senate chamber. The challengers who went to the Supreme Court question whether Bush won the key swing state by 119,000 votes, guaranteeing his victory over Democrat John Kerry. The court...

    Russia’s president Vladimir Putin had made several statements over the last six months, voicing his strong and unequivocal support for George W. Bush’s reelection bid. First, during his American visit last summer, Putin said that the Democrats had no moral right to criticize the incumbent for the Iraq invasion, after what they did to Serbia in 1999. Later in Astana Putin said that the Iraq invasion was indeed justified, because Saddam was planning terror attacks against U.S. targets, according to Russian intelligence. Finally, in October Putin said that Kerry’s candidacy was supported by international terrorists, waging a war on the...

    A couple of days after the election, my husband and I were walking down the street when I saw a sign that made my jaw drop: "REPUBLICAN PARKING." "My God, they work fast," I thought. "They've already taken over the parking lots!" Then I did a double take. The sign actually read: "PUBLIC PARKING." Oh. As Emily Littella used to say, "Never mind." But I do think my subconscious got it right: It's a Republican country now. The rest of us just sulk in it. Or, at least, that's what most progressives are doing. But me, I have yet to...

    It is almost funny to hear the Democrats, until recently lashing out at George W. Bush and all he represents, suddenly experiencing a change of heart and, having lost the presidential election, now talking about building bridges and forging alliances, as if, had they gained power, they immediately would have turned to the Republicans for input on what they should do over the next four years. The fact is, whether you love him or hate him, Bush has been re-elected president of the United States, and he has some clear ideas of what he should do with his time in...
