  • Barack Obama's Ground Zero mosque plea will cost him and the Democrats votes

    By charging headlong into the ferocious controversy over the plan to build a mosque near Ground Zero, President Barack Obama may have further damaged Democratic Party prospects in the upcoming mid-term elections. For while his return to the soaring rhetoric that won him the White House in the first place will be popular with hard-core liberal supporters, it is unlikely to capture the hearts of middle-America this year. In 2008 Mr Obama was a largely unknown quantity running on the strength of untried ideas and a ringing call for moral superiority. But now all of that has changed. According to...

    President Barack Obama, speaking last night at the White House’s iftar dinner marking Ramadan, defended plans to build a mosque and Islamic community center near Ground Zero. The nation’s commitment to religious freedom he said, “must be unshakable.” “I understand the emotions that this issue engenders. Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground,” he said. As WSJ reporters Devlin Barrett and Jonathan Weisman noted, the project “has generated opposition from a host of prominent Republicans, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Resistance to other mosque-building plans has sprouted around the country, but the symbolism...

    WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama on Friday forcefully endorsed building a mosque near ground zero, saying the country's founding principles demanded no less. "As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country," Obama said, weighing in for the first time on a controversy that has riven New York and the nation. "That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances," he said. "This is America, and our...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama on Friday backed construction of a proposed mosque and Muslim cultural center near the site of the September 11, 2001, attacks in New York -- a project opposed by U.S. conservatives and many New Yorkers. "As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country," Obama said to applause at an event attended by diplomats from Islamic countries and members of the U.S. Muslim community. "That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on...

    WND -- World Net Daily ^ | August 10, 2010 | Joseph Farah
    Just as Richard Nixon lost the battle of Watergate because of cover-up and stonewalling, Barack Obama has lost the battle over his constitutional eligibility for the same sins. With the latest CNN poll showing only 42 percent of Americans definitively persuaded that he was born in the U.S., those who claimed this wasn't a "winning issue" have been proven wrong. Not only is it a winning issue, it is the only issue that can effectively undo the nightmare of the Obama era in one fell swoop. There would be no need for repealing Obamacare if it turns out his presidency...

    Just one day after a new poll by CNN included the startling revelation that six of 10 Americans doubt President Obama's birth story, a new report says a surging congressional candidate confirms he has the same doubts – and he'll tell people if they call him. The comments are from Andrew "Rocky" Raczkowski, who recently won a Michigan GOP primary for Congress over establishment candidate Paul Welday. He now will challenge freshman Rep. Gary Peters in November. According to a report in Politico, he is on tape telling a meeting of supporters in Novi, Mich., "You have a president that...

    Her confirmation assured, Elena Kagan is on the brink of becoming the fourth woman ever to serve as a Supreme Court justice. The Senate is set Thursday to confirm President Barack Obama's nominee, whose addition to the court will mark the first time three female justices have served concurrently. Nearly all Democrats, the Senate's two independents and a handful of Republicans are backing her. The vote is to be one of the Senate's last actions before its members depart for a monthlong vacation. Republicans have harshly criticized Kagan, 50, as a political activist who would be unable to put...

Yes, the same Elena Kagan nominated by the commander in chief to be the next justice on the U.S. Supreme Court has actually been playing a role for some time in the dispute over whether Obama is legally qualified to be in the White House.

    Eleanor Clift: Obama's Poll Numbers Down Because He Hasn't Blamed Bush Enough By Noel Sheppard Created 07/14/2010 - 11:19 After the release of a number of polls Tuesday showing President Obama's favorability rating plummeting, his minions in the media were out in force trying to blame the slide on something or someone else. Newsweek's Eleanor Clift, ever the dutiful shill always at a Democrat's service when the chips are down, took [1] a predictably absurd tack: Obama hasn't blamed George W. Bush enough for all that ails the nation. "Obama hasn’t done as good a job as Reagan of blaming...

    Count me among those who’d really like to get a good long look at Barack Obama’s college transcripts — not because I think they would provide evidence for any of the crazy conspiracy talk that infests the fringes of our political discourse, but simply because I want to know what the man studied and what his grades were. For instance, I’d like to know whether he took any economics and how he did in those classes. I’m also curious about what his literary studies were: especially, I’d like to know whether the man who wrote two self-important memoirs before he’d...
  • Michelle, kids to miss Obama's 49th birthday celebrations

    CHICAGO: US President Barack Obama will celebrate his 49th birthday in the company of his friends in Chicago and not with his wife and two daughters. The White House said that Obama will leave Washington for Chicago on Wednesday and will stay at his home in Kenwood for the night, Chicago Sun-Times reported. First lady Michelle Obama will not be with the president. She will leave next week for Spain, travelling with daughter Sasha, 9. Malia, 12, for an overnight camp. Obama, born on August 4, 1961, in Honolulu, was last in Chicago with his family over the Memorial Day...

    Washington, D.C., August 2, 2010. The Army has now referred charges against LTC Terrence Lakin for a General Court Martial. This action triggered the appointment of a Military Judge to preside over the trial, which will likely be scheduled before October, and held in Washington, D.C. at Ft. McNair. On August 6, 2010 at Ft. McNair in Washington, D.C., the court will convene for the purpose of Judge Lind taking Lakin’s plea to the charges which consist of “missing movement” and of refusing to obey orders. Today Lakin stated: “I am not guilty of these charges, and will plead ‘not...

    So this is where we are in America, a year and a half into an administration, Barack Obama's, that was going to make us feel better about everything: The President thinks he can prop himself up by yukking it up on "The View." And Sarah Palin - a hypocrite of the absolute highest rank - goes after him a few days later saying thathe doesn't have the necessary "cojones." Like hers, apparently.

    For months, virtually each and every day Usurper-and-Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama has been removing one or more of We-the-People's liberties. Whether one wishes to ignore it or not, Obama is now in an all-out war against the American people and their soon to be former way of life. And he has no intention of stopping until American citizens are slaves to The Obama and illegal immigrants (aka "Obama Amnestees") are his indentured servants. Please note that under the thumb of The Obama illegals already have more "rights" than US citizens. Using taxpayer monies, The Obama has already begun his 2012...

    Last week, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the State Department released passport records of Stanley Ann Dunham, President Obama's mother – but those records for the years surrounding Obama's 1961 birth are missing. The State Department claims that a 1980s General Services Administration directive had resulted in the destruction of many passport applications and other "non-vital" passport records, including Dunham's 1965 passport application and any other passports she may have applied for or held prior to 1965. Destroyed, then, would also be any records shedding light on whether Dunham did or did not travel out of...

    What level of depravity has a city reached when a uniformed police officer is no safer from a street robbery than anyone else? ItÂ’s a shame that the public has to be reminded of this from time to time, but any cop can testify to this inescapable fact of police work: Where there is no punishment for criminal behavior, crime will flourish.Nowhere has this been demonstrated with greater clarity lately than in Chicago, where the Sun-Times has taken notice and sounded the alarm. In a three-part series that concluded Tuesday, reporters Mark Konkol and Frank Main examined the violent incidents...
