    If the world is in crisis, you wouldn’t know it by watching President Obama’s spring break. Between golf, basketball and the president’s upcoming trip to Rio de Janeiro, the White House is projecting a disinterested aura of business as usual. For this administration, “tuned-out” is the new normal. The Mideast crisis is continuing, and Hillary Rodham Clinton has been the one taking the 3 a.m. phone calls. The secretary of state has been dealing with political reform in Egypt, a military crackdown in Bahrain and the continuing civil war in Libya. However, she is hampered by a chief executive who...

    Since the Big Media seem determined to grill Republicans about Barack Obama's "eligibility gap" rather than the man whose actions prompted widespread public doubt about his qualifications for office, maybe it's time for a lesson on how to handle those questions – especially for those who aren't familiar with the issues and simply don't know what they are talking about. Here are some recent examples of political missteps: Sarah Palin: Asked if she questioned Obama's faith and citizenship, she replied: "I don't, and those are distractions. What we're concerned about is the economy. And we're concerned about the policies coming...
  • Congress is Responsible For the Eligibility Fiasco

    It seems that we might have been directing our efforts to determine whether or not this nation has a legally serving President at the wrong target. Congress should not be left out of the debate as though they where not in some way involved in answering this question. They are very much involved and deserve our scrutiny. Congress is COMMANDED by the U.S. Constitution to verify eligibility of a President-elect or name a replacement. Here is the case. First off, what is a “President elect” in the full legal sense of the description? Since we are talking about the Constitution,...

    The president calls for a renewal of religious tolerance and a cooling of tempers as he attempts to defuse the furor over plans to build an Islamic prayer center and mosque in New York and threats to burn copies of the Koran. As a candidate, Barack Obama passionately defended the importance of religion in his life and in the nation's politics. As president, Obama on Friday called for a renewal of religious tolerance and a cooling of tempers against Muslims as he tried to defuse the furor over plans to build an Islamic prayer center and mosque in New York...

    It is not that we didn’t know this before, but reading the New York Times – surely designed to be as favorable toward Obama as the reporter could possibly manage — one is left slack-jawed. Obama doesn’t like being commander in chief, isn’t good at it, and has relied on one tutor, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, who is leaving next year. The report should be read in full. But a few low-lights: "A year and a half into his presidency, Mr. Obama appears to be a reluctant warrior. Even as he draws down troops in Iraq, he has been...

    Bill Kelly’s Truth Squad is all about truth, justice, and all things America. Whether through humor or parody, or in just the facts, we are taking the side of those who have been continually shut out by the mainstream media. The media seek to justify this position of dishonesty by perpetuating a storyline of bigotry and prejudice; that those that oppose their thinking are backwards, illiterate, stupid, hateful, and dangerous. This has been the case from the beginning of the Obama Administration with anyone who has opposed President, including now the 9/11 families and numerous Americans, more than 64%, who...

    A district court's ruling in a dispute over Barack Obama's eligibility to be president, if allowed to stand, would strip minorities in the United States of "all political power" and leave the laws to be based "upon the whims of the majority," according to a new filing in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The brief was filed by Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation, who is representing Wiley S. Drake, who was a vice presidential candidate on the 2008 ballot in California, and Markham Robinson, an elector from the state. The case also involves a long...

    EXCERPT (Gene Mulak, the golf pro at the Vineyard Golf Club on Martha’s Vineyard) later watched Obama play three holes. What did he think of the first golfer’s game? “He’s a trouper, that’s what he is,” Mulak said. “He accepts that it’s a hard game. We had another president — I’m not naming names — who liked to play a lot of mulligans.” A mulligan is a term for a do-over golf shot, one meant to replace a poor shot. Former President Bill Clinton vacationed on Martha’s Vineyard and was known for frequently using do-over shots — they became known...

    "There will be time for them to make profits, and there will be time for them to get bonuses…now is not that time. And that's a message that I intend to send directly to them…" Those words were uttered by our President on January 29th of 2009. He was reacting to the news that some American corporations, even some that had received government “bailout” funds, had both posted profits, and had paid bonuses to their executives. And those were extraordinary words. They implied that, so far as President Obama is concerned, there are times when it is appropriate for American...

    Barack Obama's efforts to downplay his past have taken a serious blow now that Aaron Klein's exposé of the president's connections with extremists and America-haters is climbing best-seller charts everywhere. This week, Klein's "The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists" hit No. 22 on the New York Times' best-seller list for hardcover, non-fiction titles. As WND has reported, the book has also been a huge hit with the online book retailer Amazon.com. Earlier this week, "The Manchurian President" climbed all the way to the No. 1 position on both Amazon.com's "Hot New Releases in...

    President Obama is in a fix over his country of birth. The President started to dig the hole as Senate candidate and now he is president, the hole is getting deeper and uglier, mainly because of his evasive actions. Many Democrat supporters are either ignoring the problem or are vehemently attacking "birthers" who question the President's eligibility. Republicans are not the only ones concerned about his eligibility. Libertarians, independents, constitutionalists and even democrats are wondering why Obama is fighting so hard to hide his origin. Unfortunately, Obama dug the hole himself, and like a hole created when a water main...

    The US White House has released a photograph of President Barack Obama's daughter Sasha sneaking up on her father as he works in the Oval Office. The image has drawn comparisons with the famous 1963 image of John F Kennedy Jnr playing underneath the Oval Office desk as his father reads documents. That picture helped create the image of "Camelot" associated with the Kennedys. Mr Obama has said being able to work and live at home is "one of the huge benefits of being president". The photograph, taken in early August and released through the official White House Flickr website,...

    The Republican lawmaker who has referred to healthcare as President Barack Obama's "Waterloo" says it's "not personal," but he's not backing down. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) is sticking by his statement that President Obama's healthcare reform plan will sink his presidency. He says someone needs to "put the brakes on" Obama's spending spree. DeMint, who recently released a book titled Saving Freedom: We Can Stop America's Slide into Socialism, says Obama's healthcare plan must be stopped. "The president has been on a rampage, and we've got to stop him. So this isn't personal; it's not political; it's about really...

POLITICO 44 SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio - President Obama left the Cleveland area and an afternoon of health care reform events for two Democratic National Committee fundraisers in Chicago, where he struck a defensive and at times defiant tone about his top priority.

    Nobody has to tell me things are going from bad to worse in America. The question that preys on my mind is when it was that we began our descent. Some would say it started when Jimmy Carter turned his back on the Shah of Iran, thus providing an impetus for latter-day Islamic terrorism. Others might say it was the first time Bill Clinton dropped his pants in the Oval Office, while still others might contend it began when the Supreme Court determined that the Pursuit of Happiness was a rationale for 80 million abortions on demand. For all I...

    Our new President has adopted the idea of having Czars to deal with special issues of importance. He has named about three dozen Czars dealing to address significant matters like global warming and executive compensation. Their appointments have become very controversial, as there have been complaints about them circumventing the congressional approval and oversight processes. I say damn these naysayers. I have come to embrace this idea despite the fact of being Jewish and having an aversion to Czars, due to a history of pogroms against my ancestors. And I just feel that we need a few more to round...
