  • You Want President Obama Impeached, Sarah Palin? For What? (The black backlash begins)

    If she’s demanding impeachment, it would be nice if she could at least tell us what for.If you’re familiar with the oeuvre of the late conservative Internet provocateur Andrew Breitbart, you’ll know that he’s remembered among his admirers for the cri de coeur that he offered right before his death: “Apologize for WHAT?” It’s become as much a part of Tea Party lore as Rick Santelli’s CNBC rant or South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson’s “You lie!” So you’ll pardon me if I find it just a bit ironic that Breitbart.com is where Palin chose to pen her immediately infamous op-ed...

    Seldom have so few done so much financial harm to so many as is now occurring with the partial mandatory implementation of the Obama Socialist Health Insurance Tax, commonly called "Obamacare." Estimates today on FOX News "Fox and Friends" start at 4.5 Million clients who will have their current Medical Insurance policies cancelled at year end because those existing insurance policies are considered to be illegal by the Mandatory Obamacare Federal Insurance Tax Law. Will Speaker Boehner do ANYTHING to protect Insurance consumers from the harsh financial ruin that Obamacare clearly promises?

    No argument for Obamacare’s repeal can top the simple fact that Members of Congress do not want it to apply to them. Today’s Politico reports that the House and Senate congressional leadership—both Democrats and Republicans working in cahoots with Obama Administration officials—have been secretly negotiating for months trying to find a way to exempt Members of Congress and their staffs from being forced into Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges. Beginning on January 1, 2014, these exchanges, to be run by the federal government or the states (under federal rules) will offer federally “qualified” insurance coverage for millions of Americans. Ordinary Americans...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday declared a fiscal emergency to force lawmakers into a special session to tackle a state budget gap that has widened to $26.3 billion from $24.3 billion after they failed to close it on Tuesday. Lawmakers debated late into the night Tuesday but could not agree on a plan to balance California's budget for its new fiscal year, which began early Wednesday morning. That cleared the way for state officials to suspend payments owed to vendors and local agencies, who instead will get "IOU" notes promising payment. The notes would mark...

    Liberals in Congress, under the guise of emergency economic stimulus legislation, are attempting to push forward their radical health care agenda. These provisions would fuel fiscal irresponsibility in state Medicaid programs, expand dependence on the already-unsound Medicaid entitlement program, distort health care choices for unemployed workers, and set up a federal infrastructure that could be used as a tool for government rationing of medical treatments, procedures, and services. If Members of Congress insist on these provisions, they should at the very least require a review of Medicaid spending by the states, prioritize Medicaid spending on a state-by-state basis, empower families...

    WASHINGTON – We may never know whether the government's $700 billion bailout of the financial industry worked, according to a new report from congressional auditors. That's because it will be impossible to sort out which of the government's spending and other tinkering has made a difference, according to the report released Friday by the Government Accountability Office. The report covers Treasury's administration of the bailout, called the Troubled Asset Relief Program, through Jan. 23. Nearly $294 billion had been released by that date — almost $200 billion of it through a program to inject capital directly into financial institutions. The...

    When news of Citigroup's financial woes broke last week, I assumed the Mets' new stadium would end up having a different name than Citi Field. It's been common knowledge for quite some time that Citi's paying the Mets $400 million over the course of 20 years just to have their name plastered on that enormous facade. Unfortunately, it's better for business to advertise than it is to care about real people's jobs. Citigroup is still going to sponsor the new stadium, and is planning on picking up that colossal tab over the next two decades. Some other feathers in the...

A report from Karen England at the Capital Resource Institute said the amendments were submitted by assemblymen Martin Garrick and Chuck DeVore to a plan that also would allow members of the Communist Party to teach in public schools. "I am appalled that Democrat lawmakers will not agree to these commonsense amendments," said England, executive director of CRFI. "My son...

They have an agenda (open borders and zero immigration enforcement), and they bully our weak American government counterparts into doing their bidding. It’s sickening.

    CAIRO, Egypt - A new video of al-Qaida's No. 2 leader released on Saturday mocks President Bush and U.S. legislation requiring the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, saying the bill would rob the group's fighters of the chance to kill more Americans. Osama bin Laden's deputy Ayman al-Zawahri derided the new U.S.-backed Baghdad security plan, recounting an April 12 suicide bombing in Baghdad's heavily protected Green Zone when an attacker slipped through security and killed a Sunni legislator in the Iraqi parliament's cafeteria. An al-Qaida-led amalgam of Sunni insurgents in Iraq claimed responsibility. "And lest Bush worry, I congratulate...

Top Democratic leaders shot back that Cheney has lost all public credibility.

In an interview broadcast Sunday, Cheney predicted the Democrats will blink. He said Congress will end up passing a "clean" bill that...

    WASHINGTON - The Senate's immigration proposal would cost $49 billion over the next five years and $127 billion over the next decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The majority of the costs would be for increased enforcement, such as hiring more Border Patrol officers and building more detention facilities. The legislation would offer a chance at citizenship for millions of immigrants. Spending on government benefits programs, including refundable tax credits for the working poor, would rise by $16 billion for the years 2007-11, and by $48 billion over the decade, the CBO said in a report released over the...

Even though he's using this ancient perl/CGI format(that has changed 3 times in 6 years), there's no way in hell it costs $260,000 a year to run FreeRepublic unless Robinson is paying himself and his family at least $225,000 a year. https://secure.freerepublic.com/donate/budget Monthly Expenses Bandwidth $2,700 Technical Services 4,000 Administrative 7,500 Legal Expenses 3,000 Estimated Bank Fees, Insurance, Office Expenses, Maintenance and Repairs, Supplies, Travel, misc. 2,200 $2700 a month for bandwidth?

    An audit of the Palestinian Authority revealed that President Yasser Arafat had diverted US$900 million in public funds to a special bank account he controlled and most of the money was later invested in Palestinian assets, an International Monetary Fund official said Saturday. Karim Nashashibi, IMF resident representative in the West Bank and Gaza, credited openness and transparency in the Palestinian Authority's accounting under Finance Minister Salam Fayad for disclosing the transfers between 1995 and 2000. The large majority of the money was invested in Palestinian assets at home and abroad, Nashashibi said. A Palestinian Investment Fund was established to...

    Charles Krauthammer is exceptional man. A psychiatrist by training, he has left his original profession to become a celebrated pundit, applying his unique insights into the world of the demented to the word of the truly demented -- international politics. In a recent syndicated column Bracing for the Apocalypse, Dr. Krauthammer provides us with his chilling diagnosis of humankind's current chances for longevity and pronounces the situation terminal -- unless forceful action is taken immediately. Even more interesting (and just as chilling), he posits a hypothesis regarding the origins of our current terminal condition, tracing the terror and apocalyptic threat...

    Throughout my college career I was lucky to have studied under some well-known, very knowledgeable history professors. These were men of integrity and vision, who taught their classes with passion and honesty. These learned scholars provided me with the tools I needed to seek the truth of the past and the willingness and interest to explore the lessons of my forefathers. I graduated Johns Hopkins in the spring of 1993. During my four-year stay at Hopkins there were a few attempts to hijack history and political science by “progressives” who wanted to force students to specifically view the world through...

    The current joint Senate-House committee hearings on the intelligence failings leading up to the tragic events of 9/11 appear to be continuing a typical political tradition on Capital Hill -- spinning political wheels in the service of appearing to do something, while accomplishing absolutely nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero. To this observer anyway, that's seems to be the best description of all the manufactured sound and fury emanating from these current joint congressional hearings into pre-9/11 intelligence failures. The biggest problem is that the hearings aren't "hearing" from the appropriate sources. Everyone from the current lame-duck FBI director to the current...
