    The Obama Watch Freedom Fries By Nicole Russell on 10.26.10 @ 6:06AM When President Obama indulges in fast food while traveling he exhorts interested onlookers: "Don't tell Michelle." The fit First Lady is, of course, an advocate of healthy foods and outspoken about childhood obesity. She had her own "Don't tell Barack" moment recently, when she stopped at a diner in Milwaukee and had classic greasy fare: a burger and fries. Mrs. Obama's meal really wouldn't be anyone else's business were it not for her own aspiration to rewrite the nation's menus. In a speech to the National Restaurant Association,...

    Who shall separate us from the LOVE of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? Rom 8:35 Intel has agreed to build a 6 Billion plant in a suburb of Portland OR which will create far more jobs than obozo’s stimulus plan. Once again capitalism shows communism how to create jobs and make wealth in spite of the Gummit’s best efforts to stop it. The kicker of course is that Intel was given tax advantages of $10 Million to build it here rather than another state. Just like we have been telling...

David Vitter (R-LA) dares to use the word "illegals" 4 times in his effective ad against an opponent (Charlie Melancon) who supported laws that help illegal aliens. Poor baby. The truth hurts. She also makes an absurd statement that "the majority of those here illegally are not even Latino". In fact, 61% are from Mexico alone. But compounding her error she goes after "blonde, blue eyed waitresses" supposedly from Eastern Europe. Uh, who's being "racist" now? Youtube Link HERE To see Sen. Vitter's great ad click...

    The Arizona immigration law is a matter of complaint from ten Latin America countries joining Mexico and the US Federal government lawsuit against the state. Let’s see how the Gang of 10 scores on human rights themselves. According to the 2009 US State Department report on Bolivia: Although the law permits children up to six years old to live with an incarcerated parent, children as old as 12 lived with their parents in prisons. (The law also permits spouses to live in prison.) Approximately 877 children lived with a parent in prison, as an alternative to being left homeless....

    Reporting from Guatemala City, Danilo Valladares of the Inter-Press Service (IPS) notes that there will be one more barrier for Guatemalan immigrants in their trek to the United States. In addition to dodging dangerous drug traffickers and immigration officials, the latest obstacle is emerging: a wall between Guatemala and Mexico. According to the head of customs for Mexico’s tax administration, Raul Diaz, the Mexican border state of Chiapas is constructing a wall along the country’s southern border with Guatemala, along the river Suchiate which divides the countries. Diaz says the purpose of the wall is to prevent the passage of...

    On Tuesday night, a group of 40 Episcopal bishops from around the country attended a weekly vigil in Douglas, AZ, held for those who have died trying to cross illegally into the U.S. The advocacy group known as Frontera de Cristo has been conducting the vigils along the Pan-American Highway since 2000. The group placed crosses on the sidewalk and spoke the names of those who died attempting the illegal crossing. The bishops are in Arizona for a meeting of the House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church, and have been visiting with illegal aliens and listening to their stories...

    Connecticut state law does not allow pistol permit records to be available to the public. Many states do allow this information to be released, and some media outlets – in a drive to increase page views – have published the full databases including private information simply because it’s “public record.” A journalist at the Hartford Courant suggests the information should be made public, but there is no reasonable reason to do so ... other than continue the stereotype that guns are bad, gun people are a strange lot who must be monitored, and the media's goal of increasing page views...

    The corrupt Mexican government is already feeling the results of Arizona’s SB 1070 law which will give local police the power to investigate the immigration status of people they lawfully come in contact with during the course of their duties. The Mexican consulate in Phoenix has assigned extra staff workers to assist its people in returning to their homeland. Mexicans who have been arrested and deported are watching from the southern side of the border holding fast to their delusion that they will soon be able to sneak back in when this “blows over” after Obama kills the law.

Folks are looking for things to do with their kids, and this would be a great opportunity to do a few things -- help this community, send a different message about the extent of the spill, and also think long term about how the rest of the country can help this economy and the folks down here,” Mrs. Obama said at the...

In fact -- as Frederick Hayek pointed out long ago -- all socialist movements are the creation of intellectual elites, liberally pollinated by millionaires.

    No general should criticize his or her commander, and Gen. Stanley McChrystal is no exception. But the mainstream media is primarily concerned with the political fallout of McChrystal's apparent insubordination as revealed by a piece in Rolling Stone. They are not concerned with whether his critiques are accurate, in stark contrast to other military officers' critiques of war policy under the Bush administration. During Bush's tenure, active duty generals that spoke out against administration policy were portrayed as courageous whistleblowers. Retired generals were treated as ever-wise sages of military policy. None were scrutinized as McChrystal, pictured right, has been in...

    Mexican President Felipe Calderon got the tough new Arizona immigration law wrong when he told Congress on Thursday, "It is a law that not only ignores a reality -- but also introduces a terrible idea of racial profiling as the basis for law enforcement." To the contrary, Arizona Senate Bill 1070, which makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally, expressly prohibits police actions based on "race, color or national origin." Some senators and representatives frequently applauded during Calderon's speech. What a spectacle. Senators and House members were cheering a foreign leader for bashing an Arizona...

The shocking move by the lame-duck governor involves five members of his embattled press office, whose two top-ranking members abruptly resigned earlier this year amid what they privately called misleading statements made by the governor. The double-digit pay hikes, granted within the past 10 days, were first disclosed by Albany TV station CBS6 late yesterday -- just hours after public employee unions went to federal court seeking a...

This analysis is beyond over the top. The Arizona law is essentially what the Federal Law already is, but it is not being enforced. To equate what Arizona is doing to...

    Is it inconsistent for Muslim “holy warriors” to engage in voyeuristic acts of lasciviousness? Because would-be jihadists and martyrs have been known to frequent strip bars — such as the 9/11 hijackers and Major Nidal Hasan, whose “late-night jiggle-joint carousing stands at odds with the picture of a devout Muslim” — many Americans have concluded that such men cannot be “true” Muslims, leading to the ubiquitous conviction that they are “hijacking Islam.” In fact, Islamists rely on several rationalizations — doctrines, even — that make “jiggle-joint carousing” consistent with Muslim piety. Considering that Islamic law permits sex slaves (Koran 4:3),...

    The ink is barely dry on the pay-as-you-go law, and Democrats are seeking to bypass it to enact parts of their job-creation agenda. Democratic leaders said extensions of unemployment insurance and COBRA healthcare benefits should be emergency spending that isn’t subject to the pay-as-you-go statute, which requires new non-discretionary spending to be offset with spending cuts or tax increases. With current extensions of unemployment and COBRA benefits set to expire at the end of the month and the jobless rate still near 10 percent, Democratic lawmakers want to pass the extensions quickly, without having to find offsets for the costs....

    So who at NBC thought it would be a good idea for the special today to be, among other things, fried chicken, “in honor of Black History Month”? Because, spoiler alert – it wasn’t a good idea at all. And now NBCU employee Questlove is bringing it to the attention of his 1 million plus Twitter followers. Questlove, the band leader and drummer for The Roots (the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) tweeted this picture from the NBC Commissary at 30 Rock, with the comment: “Hmm HR?”

    The liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has been a critic of state tax credits for Hollywood films, but did one of his own films benefit from one of those credits in his home state of Michigan? It seems so, according to a report by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research and educational institute focusing on issues in Michigan. The center checked with the Michigan Film Office and learned that a "production person" had applied for one of the tax credits for "Capitalism: A Love Story," Moore's 2009 film about corporate greed, parts of which were filmed...

    Politics: During last year's presidential campaign, Democrats blasted "sweetheart deals" for companies like Halliburton and vowed to end no-bid contracts. Now the Democrats' political donors are reaping them. Monday, Fox News found that Checchi & Company Consulting was awarded a $24,673,427 no-bid contract for "rule of law stabilization services" inside Afghanistan. And by coincidence, its president, Vincent Checchi, donated $8,350 to Obama's campaign, according to Supposedly, Checchi will train the "next generation of legal professionals" and develop the capacity of Afghanistan's justice system "to be accessible, reliable and fair." None of those things describe the contract process Checchi is...

    All is well between Harry Reid and Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm, mmm, mmm)… Harry talked about Obama being acceptable because he was light skinned and didn’t have a “negro dialect”… No that isn’t racial… Racial is Trent Lott telling a 100 year old friend, Strom Thurmond, that maybe the country wouldn’t have some of its problems had he been elected way back when… I get it.Harry Reid — Senate Majority Leader doesn’t get canned.Trent Lott — Senate Majority Leader gets canned.

    COPENHAGEN, Dec 14 -- The Copenhagen climate talks will generate more carbon emissions than any previous climate conference, equivalent to the annual output of more than half- -a-million Ethiopians, figures commissioned by hosts Denmark show. Delegates, journalists, activists and observers from almost 200 countries have gathered at the Dec 7-18 summit and their travel and work will create 46,200 tonnes of carbon dioxide, most of it from their flights. This would fill nearly 10,000 Olympic swimming pools, and is the same amount produced each year by 2,300 Americans or 660,000 Ethiopians -- the vast difference is due to the huge...

    At a time when the White House is projecting the largest deficit in the nation's history, Uncle Sam is trying to recover billions of dollars in unpaid taxes from its own employees. Federal workers owe more than $3 billion in income taxes they failed to pay in 2008. According to Internal Revenue Service documents, 276,300 federal employees and retirees owe $3,042,200,000. The IRS tracks the voluntary compliance rate of federal employees and retirees each year, and each year feds come up short. The one bright spot in this year's report is that after several years of a steady increase, the...

    Unbelievable. The very people who are trying to panic us all about carbon emissions and anthropogenic Global Warming - and would like to stop us all from driving big cars - begin arriving in Copenhagen... in... guess what? Chauffer-Driven Limousines! For those of you who might be unfamiliar with European license plates, BLUE license plates belong to diplomats and official government personnel. The "CD" emblem you see on some cars belong to diplomats.

    Global warming culture has arrived. A motocross event through local forests and city streets and a fashion "summit" are among the myriad side events scheduled for the United Nations' Climate Change Conference 2009, which begins Monday. There's also a new Copenhagen cocktail for delegates perhaps weary of heavy discussion.

    Hollywood actress and PETA spokeswoman Dominique Swain has reportedly been caught dumping unvaccinated puppies at an animal shelter. Swain, 29, arrived at a Malibu refuge with her father and a box of eight-week-old cocker spaniel cross dogs over the weekend, reports claim. The Lolita and Face/Off starlet, who posed naked in front of a school blackboard in a PETA animal rights advertisement, then reportedly told the shelter workers she couldn't pay for the puppies' vaccinations. "She said she had no money, despite [arriving] in her BMW," Fox News reported a witness as saying.
