    The Obama administration’s new excuse to explain why Vice-President Joe Biden will be “out of the country” when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addresses Congress next month is that he has to attend a Panama government inauguration – that occurred last July. The vice president of the United States normally attends joint sessions of Congress, but National Security Council Spokesperson Bernadette Meehan stated last month, “As a matter of long-standing practice and principle, we do not see heads of state or candidates in close proximity to their elections…. The President has been clear about his opposition to Congress passing new legislation...

    "The day may come -perhaps soon- when abandoning the GOP for a new party is the best way to deal with events and stop the rise of tyranny.  I think the answer -at this moment- is for conservatives to retake the Republican Party. Reagan did it, and Reagan was opposed by the Republican establishment every step of the way, including the Bush family..." Mark Levin of course good to tune-into on a depressing Inauguration Day- and The Great One was in fine form yesterday afternoon: ...I don’t think Obama knows exactly what (Obama’s) going to go for in his second term,...

    The Miami Herald is reporting Hugo Chávez early demise was recognized long before the rest of the world was privvy to the details of a late diagnosed and lethal cancer. With the help of Cuban brothers Fidel and Raúl, and Chávez' hand-picked successor Nicolás Maduro, the Venezuelan presidential election was moved from December 2012 to October 2012, two months that the report says were crucial. In October Chávez could still stand before his supporters to applaud his re-election, but there was no certainty that he could do so in December. He returned to Cuba for a fourth round of cancer treatments in early...

    A rather unexpected voice just joined the chorus of the liberal media outcry over sex scandals among some Catholic clergymen: none other than Evo Morales, Bolivia’s socialist and neopagan president. A Neopagan Socialist... Indeed, Mr. Morales, leader of the Movement to Socialism, figured he should teach the Pope how things in the Church ought to be run. For those who may not know, he was inaugurated President of Bolivia in 2006 using indigenous pagan rituals.1 The Bolivian newspaper Los Tiempos, of Cochabamba (6/20/2006), described the ceremony: “Evo Morales assumed political power with a spectacular display of religious rituals alluding to...

    To my Conservative Friends: Only kidding!!! Even though I gave all of you some great advice yesterday on how to hibernate and avoid the spectacle of the One’s Crowning yesterday, I had to be an observer for the loyal opposition and take notes on the scene… And what a scene it was man… From the estimated 2 million people who went to watch in DC to the cutaways the networks displayed of the thousands in Times Square, San Fran-Freak Show and the rest of the country… Everyone was texting and calling me all day and night asking me my thoughts...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – US Defense Secretary Robert Gates will sit out Barack Obama's inauguration at an undisclosed location as the "designated successor" in the event of a catastrophe, the White House announced Monday. While the eyes of the world are glued Tuesday to Obama's historic swearing-in, attended by outgoing US President George W. Bush and both outgoing and incoming senior aides, Gates will stay away, said spokeswoman Dana Perino. "In order to ensure continuity of government, Defense Secretary Robert Gates has been designated by the outgoing administration, with the concurrence of the incoming administration, to serve as the designated successor...

    I can’t believe I’m back commenting on the gay movement and their obnoxious culture wars. I had other windmills at which to tilt this week – but every time I think I’m out, they pull me back in! This time it’s the mega-stink being raised over mega-pol Barack Obama’s invitation for Rick Warren, mega-church pastor – not to mention mega-hit author, mega-relief advocate for AIDS and poverty and mega-debate moderator – to give the invocation at the mega-Inaugural. Take this nugget from the gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign (please): “It is difficult to comprehend how our president-elect, who has...

    WASHINGTON — Pentagon police on Wednesday turned away family members of troops killed in Iraq who wanted to confront Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on the reasons for the war in Iraq. The group of about 20 was stopped before entering Pentagon property by about a dozen officers, who told the protesters they did not have the proper permission to enter the building. Organizers said they have been petitioning for the meeting for weeks, but department officials are ignoring their requests. “The man who was too busy to personally sign the Killed in Action letters these families received is apparently...

    OP-ED COLUMNIST Washington On his way out of the first Cabinet meeting after his re-election, President Bush gave his longtime chief speechwriter the theme for the second Inaugural Address: "I want this to be the freedom speech." In the next month, the writer, Michael Gerson, had a heart attack. With two stents in his arteries, the recovering writer received a call from a president who was careful not to apply any deadline pressure. "I'm not calling to see if the inaugural speech is O.K.," Bush said. "I'm calling to see if the guy writing the inaugural speech is O.K." Yesterday's...

    Ok. I'm back. Lots of film. I was on the street in Penn Ave with my SS bud. I'm bruised from a protestor doing the flying zambonie over the fence and I wrstled with a mad horse that bucked his rider and went nuts after all the noise. Dammit Jim, I'm a PEOPLE doctor!!! Full report to follow, although my hand may be in a cast. So typing may be very bad for a while. Big oxymoron: why are peace protesters the most violent and does a belief in socialist idealology (sp) preclude a belief in personal hygine? Finally (after...

    Clinton Judge Emasculates Law Enforcement Agencies as Communist and Anarchist groups Plan Disruptions of Inaugural; Colombian Terrorists Target Bush for Death By Special Reports | January 18, 2005 Rulings by a Clinton-appointed federal judge, Gladys Kessler, have given unprecedented access to protesters to the inaugural parade route so that their "civil rights" may be protected. While the Washington Post and other Bush-bashing media are focusing on the cost of the January 20 Inauguration, a much more serious issue has emerged. Communist and anarchist groups may be planning to disrupt the inaugural and possibly commit violence. One organization sympathetic to a...
