  • Petition To Congress To impeach President Obama.

    According to the Constitution of the United States of America, Article 2, Section 1, "No Person except a "Natural Born Citizen", or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the signing of this Constitution, shall be eligible to hold the Office of President." Whereas, The Second Session of the First Continental Congress, back in March of 1790, defined "Natural Born Citizen" to mean a child born of two parents who must both be American Citizens”;and Whereas, The wording of the definition of “Natural Born Citizen” as established by our First Continental Congress in 1790 states: "And the...

    Empowered by an election result that will enable Chris Matthews to hear racist dog whistles anytime, anywhere, the fevered MSNBC Hardball host began a segment today to showcase just how racist the Republican Party is, especially white Southerners. He had all the stats of who voted by race, where. Missing from that, of course, was the stats of blacks voting almost 100% for Obama in key precincts in Pennsylvania. But I digress. Matthews finishing his racial thesis, then begins this line of inquiry to his two guests – Republican strategist John Feehery and Democrat strategist, Joy Reid: Matthews: Let me...

    Breitbart's Big Peace ^ | November 19, 2012 | Ben Shapiro
    Today, President Obama spoke in Burma – or as he termed it, Myanmar, despite official US practice to call the country Burma – and repeatedly botched the name of the country’s famed Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, instead calling her Aung YAN Suu Kyi. Then he called President Thein Sein “President Sein,” which was a diplomatic snafu, since the president of Burma is to be called by his full name. His speech was just as bad. After getting through the basics – acting as though his doctrine, not President Bush’s multiple actions on behalf of democracy in Burma, had...
  • Smart Power: Obama Repeatedly Botches Dignitaries' Names on Foreign Trip

    Townhall.com ^ | November 19, 2012 | Guy Benson
    President "Smart Power" at work.  Oops:   As Obama stood next to the world's most recognized democracy icon, he mispronounced her name repeatedly. Ever gracious, Suu Kyi did not correct her American guest for calling her Aung YAN Suu Kyi multiple times during his statement to reporters after their meeting. Proper pronunciation for the Nobel laureate's name is Ahng Sahn Soo Chee. The meeting came after Obama met with Myanmar's reformist new President Thein Sein - a name he also botched. As the two addressed the media, Obama called his counterpart "President Sein," an awkward, slightly affectionate reference that would...
  • In some cases, Romney paid four times as much for TV ads as Obama

    Daily Caller ^ | 11/19/2012 | Matt K. Lewis
    Mitt Romney didn't just pay too much in taxes. As Politico reported last month, he paid too much for his TV ads, too.(The following graphic represents early September media buys in Columbus, Ohio. It was provided to TheDC by a national media buyer with extensive background buying in America's most competitive state, and is representative of other examples we have seen):The cost differential is attributable to the fact that Team Obama bought "preemptable" or or "lowest unit rate" ads --- while Team Romney paid for "fixed," non-preemptable rates."Obama could deliver 1,000 points for a fourth as much as Romney," said...

    ...the electors... will meet on the Monday after the second Wednesday in December. That is when the actual re-election of the president occurs. According to the 12th Amendment, for the Electoral College to be able to select the president, it must have a quorum of two-thirds of the states voting. If enough states refuse to participate, the Electoral College will not have a quorum... then the responsibility for selecting the president and vice president devolves to the Congress. The House of Representatives selects the president and the Senate selects the vice president. Since the Republicans hold a majority in the...

    Then-defense secretary Robert M. Gates stopped bagging his leaves when he moved into a small Washington military enclave in 2007. His next-door neighbor was Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the time, who had a chef, a personal valet and — not lost on Gates — troops to tend his property. Gates may have been the civilian leader of the world’s largest military, but his position did not come with household staff. So, he often joked, he disposed of his leaves by blowing them onto the chairman’s lawn. “I was often jealous because he had...

    For the first time in its nearly 100-year history, Orlando Health is reducing its workforce by up to 400 positions starting immediately, hospital officials announced this morning. The elimination of 300 to 400 jobs will occur in two phases, and represents a 2- to 3-percent decrease in the system's 16,000 employees, said Orlando Health spokeswoman Kena Lewis. The reductions affect all departments and all eight of its hospitals, including Orlando Regional Medical Center and Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. The first wave of employees affected by the "labor expense reduction" portion of the initiative received their notices Friday, said Lewis....

    One good thing about President Obama’s re-election: It seems to have prompted some sober thinking by Republican Party leaders and allies. Oh sure, there’s been some loose talk of secession, but mostly what you’ve found is top GOP leaders trying to figure out how to broaden the GOP’s appeal and shed its reputation for anti-intellectualism while staying true to their conservative values. This is a good thing. One sure way for Republicans to blow it: If Sarah Palin runs for president. You might’ve thought Palin’s political career pretty much ended when she decided not to run for president against a...

    The health-care law’s treatment of larger employers is almost laughably complicated. If you’ve got fewer than 50 employees, nothing is asked of you, and if you’re willing to provide insurance for your employees, you get a giant tax credit, at least for awhile. But if you’re a business with more than 50 full-time employees, matters become considerably more complex. If you’ve got more than 50 full-time employees and you already offer them health insurance, you can stop reading now. You’re in the clear. If you’ve got more than 50 full-time employees and you don’t offer them coverage and you don’t...
  • Soon There Won't Be Enough Money in the World to Fund US Debt

    I just started reading After America by Mark Steyn which I highly recommend to anyone.  It is probably the most humorous book on the economic apocalypse you'll ever read.  Anyway, Mark Steyn refers to a paper called "Financing US Debt:  Is There Enough Money in the World - and At What Cost?" by US Treasury official (and former Chief Economist of the Office of Management & Budget) John Kitchen and Menzie Chinn of the Robert M. La Follete School of Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin.  Using estimates from the CBO, they calculate how much US Treasury debt foreign...
  • Massachusetts to give in-state tuition to illegal immigrants

    11/19/2012 1:35:53 PM PST · by matt04 · 24 replies
    Illegal immigrants in Massachusetts will become eligible for in-state tuition at public universities and community colleges, based on an interpretation of a new federal law by Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick. In June, Democratic President Barack Obama announced that the Department of Homeland Security will grant temporary relief from deportation to some illegal immigrants who immigrated as children and do not represent a public safety threat. The policy allowed the government to grant “deferred action” status to these immigrants, which means they would not be deported for two years and they would be granted work visas. The government has started accepting...

It deals with a meeting to be held today by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). [A] symposium [is] to be held today at the OIC headquarters in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on “Defamation Acts Against Islam.” And one top U.S. State Department official will be in attendance: The headquarters of...

    The Hill ^ | 11/18/2012 | Pete Kasperowicz
    Nearly 100 House Republicans on Monday called on President Obama not to nominate Susan Rice as Secretary of State. In a letter to Obama, the 97 Republicans said the credibility of the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations has been gravely wounded by her account of the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. "Though Ambassador Rice has been our Representative to the U.N., we believe her misleading statements over the days and weeks following the attack on our embassy in Libya that led to the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans caused irreparable damage...

    Passing through the sometimes crowded aisles of the Washington Arms Collectors’ monthly gun show at the Puyallup Fairgrounds, there was no question that a lot of people were there doing some serious shopping in the wake of the Nov. 6 election. There was also no doubt that some people in that pavilion had voted for Obama, and were in a rather interesting quandry: how to engage in a conversation about the election while not necessarily being confrontational or combative. A couple seemed smug without daring to engage in a full debate. All of the "suspects" invariably spoke without looking us...

    Americans are confused. I realize that’s probably the understatement of the year, but I am referring not to the apparent insensibility of those who continue to support President Barack Obama, but to the perplexed state of those who are attempting to make sense out of the election outcome itself, as well as events that have taken place since. In short, it is mind-boggling that the man was re-elected considering the shape America is in, and his being the most dismal record of any President in American history. The craven but successful ploy on the part of the administration to defer...

Let me say it as simply as I can: Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.

We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government. He declared his to...
