  • Boehner's style: Why a weak Speaker is just what conservatives need

    Conservative Intel ^ | 5/28/13 | David Freddoso
    ...Right now, conservative members of the House wield far more power than they did before — not only because their ranks have grown, but also because the pressure on them to conform is far less centralized and less effective. If you want proof that this system is better for conservatives, consider this: Some of the conservative members who have pushed back hardest against leadership (and won) during the 112th and 113th Congresses are the very same ones who, in the DeLay era, were co-opted and voted for Medicare Part D under pressure from party leadership. (Think, for example, of Steve...

    On Tuesday, David Freddoso, author of Spin Masters, How the Media Ignored the Real News and Helped Reelect Barack Obama, joined the hosts of Fox & Friends to discuss pro-Democratic media bias in 2012 and beyond. The author detailed the case against the media in this interview and in a recent column for the New York Post in which he quotes a political scientist who attributes much of the nation’s support for Democratic politicians to the pro-Democratic coverage of politics in the mainstream media. Without that biased media, the author and the political scientist say, the nation’s voting patterns would...

    Next week, “Gangster Government: Barack Obama and The New Washington Thugocracy” hits book shelves. (The gangster government term has been popularized by Rep. Michele Bachmann and columnist Michael Barone — who writes the foreword to this book). As the title suggests, New York Times bestselling author David Freddoso has taken an in-depth look at how President Obama has perfected Chicago-style politics in the White House. As Freddoso notes, No one was suggesting that Barack Obama was a government version of Tony Soprano, who sends “Sicilian messages” or sells drugs or moonshine or untaxed cigarettes out of the White House basement....

At the risk of giving them attention, here’s an inflammatory quote from their party chairman, Malik Zulu Shabazz, Esq. “With the rise of the Tea Party, the white-right and other racist forces. With gun sales nationwide at an all time high amongst whites, with a mood that is more anti-Black than any time recent, it is imperative that we organize our forces, pool our resources and prepare for war!”

    "[W]e have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., famously said that about President Obama's health care reform package. She was right. We are just finding out what was contained within that Obamacare law that Obama signed weeks ago. Here are five things we've learned so far: One: No sooner had Obamacare passed than the White House discovered that someone goofed. Despite all of Obama's promises and talking points, Obamacare as passed by Congress does not require insurers to cover children...

    Don't look now, but Republican Scott Brown leads Democrat Martha Coakley by one point, 48 to 47 percent, in Public Policy Polling's new poll of the January 19 special Senate election in Massachusetts. Brown is benefiting from depressed Democratic interest in the election and a huge lead among independents for his surprisingly strong standing. Those planning to vote in the special election only report having voted for Barack Obama in 2008 by a 16 point margin, in contrast to his actual 26 point victory in the state.

    "As United States taxpayers know, income tax laws have long implicitly encouraged marriage and childbearing...Such a pronatalist bias of course is no longer appropriate. In countries that are affluent enough for the majority of citizens to pay taxes, tax laws could be adjusted to favor (instead of penalize) single people, working wives, and small families. Other tax measures might also include high marriage fees, taxes on luxury baby goods and toys, and removal of family allowances where they exist. Other possibilities include the limitation of maternal or educational benefits to two children per family."

    The departure of Arlen Specter looks very bad for the GOP. You never want to lose anyone. But could Senate Republicans have stopped it? No, not once it became clear that he was going to be trounced in his primary. Specter's problem is not the party in the sense of its leadership or direction, but rather with the Republican voters in Pennsylvania. Arlen Specter switched from Democrat to Republican in 1965 so that he could win an election. He is now doing the reverse for precisely the same reason. If we take Arlen Specter's word for why he is leaving,...

As chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, an educational reform project that Ayers founded, Obama presided over a waste of $160 million in donors' money. The project, under his leadership, failed to improve student achievement in the 210 Chicago schools where it operated, according to Annenburg's final report. And to this day,...

It was electrifying.

    To the degree that they are engaged in this election, conservatives are motivated entirely by fear of Obama and what he will do as president when backed by a solidly liberal Democratic House and Senate. They are not driven by love of the Republican candidate, and it shows in the anger present at McCain campaign rallies. Most conservatives will probably vote for McCain, but they also realize they are far less likely to persuade others, and they feel a disaster coming. The enthusiasm the Right felt during the 2004 election, which had been framed as a true ideological clash between...

    With few exceptions, the mainstream media has fallen down on the job covering the meteoric rise of Senator Barack Obama, so when every once in a while a journalist takes an honest, critical look at Obama, people who believe in the democratic process should welcome the discussion. But instead of welcoming the opportunity, the Obama campaign tries to suppress legitimate debate by engaging in Leninist political theater. If Obama has nothing to hide, what's he so afraid of?

    When state Senator Barack Obama cosponsored legislation creating and increasing subsidies for low-income housing developers in Illinois, and wrote letters to get $14 million specifically for two of them (one was Tony Rezko), his official acts benefited several friends and donors in that industry. A similar thing happened when Obama earmarked $200,000 for Jesse Jackson’s investment fund in Chicago and $225,000 for Father Michael Pfleger’s neighborhood ministry. Those are just a few among dozens of examples of how, when Senator Obama governs, his friends do well. Such arrangements give the lie to Obama’s self-projected image as a reformer who wants...

    ... It's impossible to know Obama's motives. But several of his official acts benefited Rezko, who in turn raised some $250,000 for Obama's campaigns. In October 1998, Obama wrote city and state officials, urging them to give Rezko $14 million to build an apartment complex outside of Obama's state Senate district. The Chicago Sun-Times noted last year that Obama's request included $855,000 in "development fees" for Rezko and for another developer, Allison Davis, who happened to be Obama's old law-firm boss. Obama's spokesman said it was just a coincidence that the state senator wrote letters to obtain millions of dollars...

Obama voted “present” on the bill after denouncing it. It passed the state Senate but died in a state house committee. In 2003, a similar bill came before Obama’s health committee. He voted against it. But this time, the legislation was slightly different. This latter version was identical to the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which by...

    Mark Levin announced Friday that 'The Obama Nation' author Jerome Corsi will return to his show Monday night. Here is [the audio about] why: One astute observer put it this way: "I suspect the Obama people would like to take a gun to John Kerry's head [for] calling attention to Corsi's book when the Obama campaign was holding its breath, hoping the NY Times story would just quietly go away." So, now that Corsi's book is selling like hotcakes, Barack Obama has set his attack dogs loose: “The reality is that there are many lie-filled books like this in the...

    The tiny newborn baby made very little noise as he struggled to breathe. He lacked the strength to cry. He had been born four months premature. “At that age,” says nurse Jill Stanek, “their lungs haven’t matured.” Stanek is the nurse who found herself cradling this baby in her hands for all of his 45-minute lifetime. He was close to ten inches long and weighed perhaps half a pound. It’s just a guess — no one had weighed or measured him at birth. No happy family had been there to welcome him into the world. No one was trying to...

    Sen. Barack Obama has a long history of close associations with radicals, extremists, socialists, communists, and terrorists. When his long trail of these associates is encountered in bits and pieces, it is more easily dismissed. But when the whole pattern is viewed, it becomes more shocking and more devastating. That's why the three recent books on Mr. Obama are so important. They put all the pieces of the Obama puzzle together. And that's why those three books are must reading for any voter: Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, Fleeced; Jerome R. Corsi, Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of...

    The electoral tide is beginning to turn against the most radical extremist and most inexperienced candidate ever nominated by a major political party. Despite the attempt of the mainstream media to sell Sen. Barack Obama as a virtual Messiah, the truth is finally beginning to leak through to the public. That truth is devastating and should prove to be fatal to his candidacy, showing the would be Democratic Messiah to be a world-class phony and fraud. Four factors started turning the election around: * First, Sen. John McCain shifted to hard-hitting and relentless criticism in the last week, and in...

    NEW YORK, (AP) -- Going negative against Democrat Barack Obama isn't just a campaign strategy for Republican John McCain. It's also a good formula for selling books. Three anti-Obama releases were in the top 20 of Amazon.com's best-seller list on Tuesday, despite little critical attention or mainstream media coverage. "There's a pent-up demand from people on the right side of the aisle who feel that the mainstream media is effusively covering Barack Obama and not critically covering him," . . .

    Interview with David Freddoso, Author of 'The Case Against Barack Obama'by Michelle Oddis  Posted 08/04/2008 ET Updated 08/04/2008 ET Michelle Oddis: Dave, you’re a reporter, not a columnist. You’ve worked very hard to dig into the Obama story. You've said that you started reporting on Barack Obama in 2004. After all this research, what do you think is the most important thing people should know about Sen. Obama? David Freddoso: The main lesson is that Barack Obama’s record, throughout his career, demonstrates conclusively that he has never been a reformer, that this image of “change and hope” that he projects...

    David Freddoso argues against the notion that Barack Obama lacks a track record, and says Republicans have missed the mark in arguing his inexperience. In his new book The Case Against Barack Obama, Freddoso says that Obama needs to run on the notion that he has no track record, because an examination of his actual work would reveal himself as a hard-Left idealogue instead of a reformer. Politico takes a look at Freddoso’s work: The first serious negative biography of Senator Barack Obama casts the Democratic nominee as a fake reformer and a real liberal. “The Case Against Barack Obama,”...

    The first book to take a critical look about Barack Obama is hitting the streets in 11 days. * * * * *Talk about presumptuous. Not content to wait for the verdict of the voters, Senator Barack Obama, who is not even the presidential candidate of the Democratic Party yet, has already directed his aides to begin making transition plans for the first 10 years (ha ha) of the Obama administration, Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic reports. Ambinder quotes an Obama campaign official as saying: "Barack is well aware of the complexity and the organizational challenge involved in the...

    Misplaced Priorities A sweating Harry Reid thinks he's putting Tom Coburn on the hot seat. By David Freddoso While the top priority of most Americans — including a growing number of moderate Congressional Democrats — is legislative action on domestic oil exploration, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) wants the world’s greatest deliberative body to set aside concerns over skyrocketing energy prices to deal with such pressing issues as interstate pet-monkey sales, a botanical garden in Maryland, and the establishment of a committee to encourage celebration of the War of 1812 bicentennial. Reid’s cloture motion on a 35-bill package...

    Dems’ Doublethink on Drilling Will the oil issue prove a gusher for the congressional GOP? By David Freddoso In the novel 1984, George Orwell used the word “doublethink” to describe the process of believing two contradictory ideas simultaneously. The concept invites an appropriate but superficial comparison to congressional Democrats’ current approach to gasoline prices. Idea Number One: High gasoline prices are good. A high price, imposed through federal carbon taxes or carbon caps, is precisely the mechanism by which Democrats hope to curb carbon emissions. We know that this mechanism works because it is already working: As gas prices rise,...
