  • Ready, aim, misfire: Liberals OK with guns if conservatives are the target

    Toronto Sun ^ | February 13, 2012 | Ezra Levant
    A left-wing freebie newspaper in Toronto, called NOW magazine, has published a photoshopped picture of the conservative mayor, Rob Ford, pointing a gun to his head. This from a magazine that claims to be against guns and gun violence. NOW magazine is unimportant to most people, but there is an important point buried amidst its smut: Liberals don’t mind promiscuous suggestions of gun crime, if it’s someone they hate in the crosshairs. It’s like when the movie, Death of a President, came to the Toronto International Film Festival. It wasn’t about a historical assassination. It was a Hollywood liberal fantasy...
  • Thrice-Married NPR Snob Garrison Keillor Mocks Newt Gingrich as a 'Polygamist'

    Hypocrisy knows no bounds on the airwaves of National Public Radio, as their Minnesota-based star Garrison Keillor led off his latest edition of “A Prairie Home Companion” by mocking the GOP frontrunners as “the Mormon running against the polygamist.” This is a rich dig coming from Keillor, since he has been married three times – just as many times as Newt Gingrich. This was within three minutes of the program starting, just a little partisan liberal boilerplate before the folksy singers get started. Keillor mocked conservatives like Romney and Gingrich for believing "the solution to our current dilemma is to...

    President Obama and Congressional Democrats have called for hundreds of billions of dollars in higher taxes on American families and small employers. Yet, there are thousands of federal bureaucrats who owe billions of dollars in taxes. Here are some of the most notable agencies:   Bureaucrat Tax Cheats Amount Owed to IRS Delinquency Rate   Executive Office of the President     36   $833,970   2.01% U.S. Senate   217 $2.1 million 3.08% U.S. House   467 $8.5 million 4.24% Postal Service   25,640 $269.6 million 3.84% Homeland Security/TSA     4,647   $36.9 million   2.46% Treasury Department/IRS...
  • Why Are The Rules Always Different For Democrats?

    Why are the Rules always different for Democrats? It doesn't matter if its Charlie Rangle not paying his taxes and just getting a slap on the wrist reprimand in the House, and not prison time. Or, IRS Chief ,Tim Geitner, forgetting to pay his income taxes, and being appointed Treasury Secretary. Maybe even Barney Frank's boyfriend running a prostitution ring from the apartment they shared, and it not reflecting negatively on him because, "He was unaware of it?" Or, Ted Kennedy, Mary Jo Kopechne, and Chappaquiddick. No one complained about Ted's and the Kennedy family's huge fortune. Nor, were they...

    We heard a lot on Tuesday night from President Obama about the wealthy paying their “fair share” in his State of the Union speech. (Well, you heard it a lot; I read the speech and then commenced to have a life on Tuesday night.) Obama made half a dozen references to fairness in relation to taxes in the address, including taking a shot at Congress: But in return, we need to change our tax code so that people like me, and an awful lot of members of Congress, pay our fair share of taxes. Just like with charity, perhaps fairness...

    First lady’s office will not comment ‘as of right now’ on $2K SOTU dress By Caroline May - The Daily Caller 1:27 PM 01/25/2012 ADVERTISEMENT While the president spoke about the economic frustrations of average Americans in his State of the Union address Tuesday night, his wife, Michelle Obama appeared at the event in a sapphire blue dress from designer Barbara Tfank’s 2012 Resort collection, estimated to cost over $2k. The first lady’s press office, however is mum on dress, telling The Daily Caller that they will not offer comment “as of right now.” Tfanks, a West Coast designer, recently...
  • Obama: Millionaires should pay at least 30 percent in taxes (Obama paid 25%, Mitt 13%, Buffett 10%)

    People earning over $1 million per year should pay an effective tax rate of no less than 30 percent, President Obama said in his State of the Union address Tuesday night. The president laid down one of his most political markers of the annual policy speech by crafting what he called the "Buffett Rule," named after the famous billionaire investor. "Tax reform should follow the Buffett rule: If you make more than $1 million a year, you should not pay less than 30 percent in taxes," Obama said.
  • How Progressives Work

    As hype around the general election ramps up, it looks like progressives again will do anything to hold on to power and advance their agenda. Events this week gave us a peek behind the curtain into the mind of the honest, “tolerant” class and exposed how they work. Let’s take a look. The Shell Game One thing about political lefties: They assume the general public is even dumber than their ideas. Surveys repeatedly show Americans are not liberal, that the word evokes a negative reaction from a large percentage of people. So what do they do? They start calling themselves...
  • Kagan in 2010: Pro-forma Senate sessions enough to block recess appointments

    Hot Air ^ | 1/12/12 | Ed Morrissey
    Republicans outraged over the recess appointments of Richard Cordray and three NLRB commissioners argue that the pro forma Senate sessions every three days means that the Senate has not recessed at all. The Congressional Research Service notes that no President in the 20 years prior to Barack Obama’s actions in the past two weeks has attempted a recess appointment unless Congress has been out of session more than nine days. Today, to no one’s great shock, Obama’s own Department of Justice says that these arguments aren’t good enough to stop the President from the exercise of his constitutional power: President...

    How does this fit in with the White House’s new Obama moniker, “warrior of the working class?” Old Saybrook, Conn (WTNH) – It was rumored that President Barack Obama has considered purchasing the late Katharine Hepburn’s 8,300-square-foot mansion in the posh Fenwick section of Old Saybrook. Some folks living in the Fenwick section of Old Saybrook were not surprised by the recent rumors. Marge Taylor says news President Barack Obama may be looking at Katherine Hepburn’s old house is nothing new. She says his daughters Sasha and Malia have already been seen around the neighborhood because Sasha is friends with...

    SFGate: Token Conservative ^ | 1/7/12 | Debra J. Saunders
    My Sunday column addressed the Obama “recess appointments.” I use quotes for the term, because the Senate was not in recess, according to its own rules. The New York Times editorialized in favor of the president’s move, while it denounced the GOP’s “use any and all tactics to thwart the bureau and the Dodd-Frank reform law that created it.” Be it noted, these GOP tactics were instituted under Democrat Harry’s Reid’s leadership in an announced effort to thwart any recess appointments under George W. Bush.Here is a 2008 editorial in which The New York Times endorsed those very same tactics,...
  • Democrats Decry the Hatch Act --Oh My!

    Election season is upon us and political opponents seem willing to do anything to get the upper hand. The Hatch Act recently resurfaced as a tool in this battle when Carolyn Lerner, the newest head of the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), sent a letter to Congress claiming that the Hatch Act is flawed, ineffective and unfairly penalizes political appointees. She wants the statute to be changed. Even more interesting is that the New York Times and the Washington Post have taken valuable space on editorial pages to support Democrats' new push to reform the Hatch Act, calling reform a...

    Hell no, we won’t go — unless we get goose down pillows. A key Occupy Wall Street leader and another protester who leads a double life as a businessman ditched fetid tents and church basements for rooms at a luxurious hotel that promises guests can “unleash [their] inner Gordon Gekko,” The Post has learned. The $700-per-night W Hotel Downtown last week hosted both Peter Dutro, one of a select few OWS members on the powerful finance committee, and Brad Spitzer, a California-based analyst who not only secretly took part in protests during a week-long business trip but offered shelter to...
  • What Is a Progressive

    When is the last time you heard a liberal describe himself as a "liberal"? It’s probably been a long time. These days, those on the left are more likely to call themselves "progressives." Writing in The New York Times, Columbia University economist Jeffrey Sachs said there have been two progressive eras — one in the early 20th century and the second under Franklin Roosevelt. He called on modern liberals to usher in a third era. But what exactly is "progressivism"? To many people, the term "Progressive Era" evokes fond caricatures of Teddy Roosevelt and such reforms as safe food, the...

    Ethics: As Democrats demonize Wall Street CEOs as the "greedy" fiends of the financial crisis, they've lined their own pockets — both before and after the crisis. Nancy Pelosi's just the latest example. The former House speaker allegedly gamed financial reforms to boost her personal stock portfolio. The brewing scandal is complicated, but here's the Reader's Digest version: After a Pelosi staffer left to lobby on behalf of credit-card giant Visa, Pelosi delayed bringing to the House floor a bill to end lucrative "swipe fees" for Visa and other credit providers. The bill couldn't have come at a worse time...

  • Planned Parenthood forgoes block grant (Davis-Bacon would force them to pay prevailing wages)

    10/28/2011 4:42:48 AM PDT · by markomalley · 3 replies
    Planned Parenthood Southwestern Oregon on Wednesday said it has declined to accept a $73,893 federal Community Development Block Grant allocated to the non-profit agency by the city of Springfield back in April to help with the construction of the agency’s $8.5 million health center in Glenwood. Planned Parenthood’s decision has nothing to do with some recent vocal opposition to the grant, spokeswoman Sarah Moseley said. Rather, accepting the grant money would have required Planned Parenthood to pay prevailing wages to all construction workers under the federal Davis–Bacon Act, something Planned Parenthood didn’t know when it applied for the grant or...

    Forget global warming climate change. The real inconvenient truths are those that make liberals/Democrats react like Dracula to holy water. And for those of you who associate or sympathize with Occupy Wall Street, this one’s a doozy.*If the OWS protesters are really serious about castigating the 1%’s alleged hoarding of wealth at the expense of the rest of us 99%, why are they only protesting Wall Street? Why are they not protesting uber-rich pampered out-of-touch Hollywood/celeb crowd, many of whose salaries make the average Wall Street financier look like a beggar? Why not six- or even seven-figured pro athletes? And...

    Sure, your heart is in that lovely liberal place. Even so, you'd like to get away from the "Occupy" hoi-poloi soiling the streets. No problem! Just join the luxury-liner liberals of The Nation magazine on their upcoming cruise--assuming you have up several thousand bucks [alcohol not included] for you and the lefty you love to share a cabin! Was watching MSNBC last night, when up popped a Nation commercial. After the standard stuff ragging on the "toxic nonsense from the right," suddenly a Caribbean cruise commercial broke out. Yes, you can sail with Katrina vanden Heuvel, Van Jones and other...

    A investigation has uncovered that the man whose epic meltdown video at the "Occupy Wall Street" protests went viral is really Edward T. Hall III. Mr. Hall is a Columbia graduate student who has a trust fund set up by his grandfather. He recently made headlines for trying to board a flight at JFK airport by hopping the ticket counter and diving onto the baggage carousel. He was charged with trespassing and is free on "conditional release."
