    On the eve of the Netanyahu visit to Washington, President Obama gave a lengthy interview to Jeffrey Goldberg that shows a chief executive who has learned next to nothing about the world in his five years in office. First, kudos to Goldberg: he pressed Obama repeatedly, challenging vague formulations and seeking clarity. Goldberg pushed Obama hard, especially on Iran and Syria. Obama isn’t good off the cuff, especially when challenged; he is far better with a prepared speech. And what emerged is an awful portrait of the president and his conception of the world. Take Syria. Here’s what Obama said:...

    I do not write unpleasant things about Barack Hussein Obama because he is a Democrat, a far-left liberal ideologue, a confirmed liar, or the sock-puppet of whatever cabal that chose him long ago to be the President. I write unpleasant things because he is all of these things, but also because he is the most stupid man to have ever held the office of President. As far back as January 2, 2010 I wrote that Obama had "an imaginary life" because there was no proof that anything he claimed in his two memoirs, written by the age of 45, was...

    Once upon a time there was a young lion who had been separated from his father at a very young age. Having no role model to show him the ways of a true lion pride, he was lost. Eventually, a surrogate father stepped in to guide the young lion. This older, worldly lion taught the lion cub to imitate the hyenas that live off the fruits of other's labor and use any means necessary to obtain whatever they want. Under the tutelage of his stepfather, the young lion grew to be a successful hyena. As is always the case,...

    Tonight, President Obama weighed in to the recent news about a black professor being arrested for disturbing the peace after police responded to reports that someone was breaking into his house. Obama responded to a question that the police acted stupid in arresting the professor, and that, uh, well, black people get pulled over by the police disproportionately. I couldn't believe he chose to comment on this issue as President, first of all. It's way, way, way not in his lane. But secondly, it is highly premature to categorize the police's actions as right or wrong. He went further than...

    When Congress spends more money than it collects in taxes, it authorizes the Treasury Department to borrow from the public by selling Treasury bills, bonds, and notes. The Treasury offers these securities for sale at public auction, and they are bid for and purchased by banks, pension funds, trusts, corporations, individuals, and even foreign interests. These are widely considered to be the safest IOUs around. After all, they are guaranteed by the U.S. government. Inasmuch as Treasury securities are offered at auction, there is no chance they will not be purchased. The Treasury can offer as high a rate of...

    Strasbourg, France - The United States' decision to pump ever-larger sums into its economy is the "road to hell," the holder of the European Union's rotating presidency said Wednesday, just a week before he was set to meet the US president in London. The US is repeating the mistakes of the 1930s and has chosen the "road to hell" in the process, said the Czech Republic's fallen prime minister, Mirek Topolanek, the morning after his government failed a vote of no confidence by the narrowest of margins. The vote throws into question not just the Czech presidency of the EU,...

But President Obama's foreign-policy botches have set new records for instant incompetence. Contrary to left-wing myths, I wasn't a fan of the Bush administration. (I called for Donald Rumsfeld to get the boot in mid-2001.) But fair's fair. Despite his many faults, Bush sought to do good. Obama just wants to look good. Vice President Dick Cheney was arrogant. Vice President Joe Biden is arrogant and stupid. Take your pick. Don't worry about the new administration's ideology. Worry about its terrifying...

    There are growing indications that the Obama administration is melting down, unraveling and falling apart. The clearest indication is Barack Obama and his treasury secretary failing to come up with a plan to fix the bank/credit crisis. He is proposing solutions for every social problem ever identified by liberal Democrats, but doesn’t seem to be dealing with what should be his No. 1 priority. The bank fix is supposed to be announced by Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy Geithner, during this week. Nero fiddled while Rome burned, but the early days of the Obama administration will be remembered for his...

    Mitt Romney is a picture perfect Republican candidate for President. Some on the left have suggested that Romney carries extra baggage: He is a member of the LDS (Mormon) Church. Will traditional Christians vote for a Mormon? Traditional Christians believe their faith can inform politics. Other faiths can reach similar conclusions and become allies. Americans are electing the President of the United States not the Patriarch of Antioch, the Bishop of Rome, or the President of the Southern Baptist Convention. Any labeling of Mormons as too “weird” to serve the public sets a risky precedent that will come back to...

Speaking during his weekly radio and television show Sunday, Chavez called Halloween a "gringa," or North American, custom. "Families go and begin to disguise their children as witches," Chavez said. "That is contrary to our ways." Chavez said he was urging Venezuelans to reflect on the subject. In recent years it has become common to see Venezuelan parents holding parties for children dressed as ghouls,...

    At first glance, the term "gun nut" would appear to be nothing more than an ad hominem against the more enthusiastic weapon owners of this country. However, as one reads the literature espoused by gun nut organizations, the reasoning behind this term becomes startlingly clear. Gun nuts are called as such because they are incontrovertibly insane. The gun lobby has adopted the same attitude toward politics as Rush Limbaugh: "Don't confuse me with facts, I've got my mind made up!" Gun nuts are so obsessed with opposing gun control laws that no amount of factual evidence against their position will...

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008. And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts. From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in… You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president. Her brothers, Hugh and Tony Rodham, say it's true. Friends...

    Part II of Dr. Netto's "The Indifferent Man" Commentary: The indifferent man -- part 2 By Uwe Siemon-Netto UPI Religious Affairs Editor PARIS, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Editor's note: This is the second installment of the United Press International's series on the religiously indifferent man. This new species is incapable of dealing with theological issues raised by catastrophes such as the tsunami disaster in Asia, which underscores the call for strong pastors as substitutes for parents in the upbringing of children. -- How can postmodern man -- a doctrinally indifferent species, as Cardinal Paul Poupard defines him -- react adequately...

    We can't tell if this is parody or self-parody, though we suspect the latter--and in either case, it's hilarious. Late last week a new Web site, SorryEverybody.com, appeared on the scene. Here's its manifesto:Some of us--hopefully most of us--are trying to understand and appreciate the effect our recent election will have on you, the citizens of the rest of the world. As our so-called leaders redouble their efforts to screw you over, please remember that some of us--hopefully most of us--are truly, truly sorry. And we'll say we're sorry, even on the behalf of the ones who aren't.The site features...

    New Jersey Senate President Richard (Dick) Codey is the driving force behind New Jersey's recent efforts to require “childproof guns” when the technology becomes “economically viable.” Codey recently issued a statement regarding a protest in front of the New Jersey state capitol, held by the Second Amendment Sisters. That statement mocked the group by referring to them as the “twisted sisters,” all because of the group’s opposition to his proposed gun control laws. Actually, the Second Amendment Sisters simply advocate a woman’s “right to choose” to own and carry firearms. But Dick Codey thinks the government should make that choice...
  • Need help with letter to a big-mouthed teacher. (Vanity)

    Please help. I need to write a letter to my child's Global Studies teacher who last week told the class that Abu-Ghraib (scandals) "was all Runsfeld's fault". I asked my child if she (the teacher) had offered any documentation or fact to support this and she said "I don't think so". One of the other students opined that he should be "impeached" to which the teacher replied that only presidents could be impeached. The student then said we "should impeach Bush", to which the teacher responded with a laugh. I might also add, that this teacher also told the students...

    Stop the presses! Chatterbox predicted May 11 that right-wing culture warriors would soon be blaming the Abu Ghraib prison scandal on the depravities of the 1960s. But various readers alerted Chatterbox that quite a few conservative commentators (most of them second-tier) have already come tantalizingly close to making just that point: Blame moral relativism. Richard Land, head of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, to Rachell Zoll of the Associated Press: "This is not a breakdown in the system. This reflects a breakdown in society. These people's moral compass didn't work for some reason. My guess is...

    NEW YORK -- The Rev. Al Sharpton is a long shot to win the Democratic presidential nomination. But he is the front-runner for most interesting candidate. "The Rev," as his supporters call him, was ordained at age 9, worked for Adam Clayton Powell Jr. at 13, later befriended and managed James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, and worked with boxing promoter Don King and civil rights leader Jesse Jackson. He also was an FBI informant, survived a stabbing and then visited his assailant in jail, and went to jail himself. He still professes the belief that Tawana Brawley was telling...
