    American Thinker ^ | February 5, 2013 | Steve McCann
    Whether in the various state capitols or the once hallowed halls of Congress or the now tarnished grandeur of the White House, the acquisition and retention of political power by any means necessary, and the attendant access to ever larger sums of money, either borrowed, created out of whole cloth or coerced from the taxpayers, has become firmly entrenched in the nation's political psyche. Party identity notwithstanding, in order to achieve this end, nothing is beyond the pale -- be it fraud, corruption, outright lies, or immorality. No one person on the American landscape today more epitomizes this descent into...
  • Gas prices take bigger bite of Americans' income [Highest in THREE DECADES!]

    Americans are pumping about 4% of their incomes into buying gasoline, according to a government report. The Energy Department said on Monday that U.S. households spent an average of $2,912 on gasoline last year, the highest level in four years. The percentage reached similar levels in 2008, when a red-hot global economy and panic over dwindling supplies sent gas prices through the roof. But before then, the percentage hadn't reached these levels in nearly three decades.

    Beaurat Obama wants universal registration of all firearms in America. He says it’s “common sense” to register all firearms and the “majority” of firearms owners agree with him. He polls his people and tells us we think that way too. The man agglomerates numbers in biased and prejudiced surveys. He twists the findings into complementary terms showing just how perfect his intuition is when adducing the American public’s thinking. He almost never gets plastered for trying to pull the wool over the American people’s eyes. Not ever, since the mid-term elections in his first term, has he admitted the American...
  • Seven million will lose insurance under Obama health law

    President Obama's health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday. CBO said that this year's tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they'll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade. But the non-partisan agency also expects fewer people to have to pay individual penalties to the IRS...

    This is another one of those subjects I wanted to write about a few months ago but it fell on my back burner. Every so often we see some new study that "proves" that Fox News viewers are stupid. The latest one that came out a few weeks ago proved that your average Fox News viewer has an average IQ of 80. PJ Media's Charlie Martin proceeded to dissect this study, first by contacting its author. The author didn't give a full name, worked for some fictitious organization, used a bizarre methodology, and could not reveal who had commissioned the study...

    President Obama discussed plans to visit Israel this spring during a recent phone call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the White House said Tuesday. (PHOTOS: Obama’s 24 international trips) Obama brought up the travel plans during a Jan. 28 call with Netanyahu, National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said. “The start of the president’s second term and the formation of a new Israeli government offer the opportunity to reaffirm the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel and to discuss the way forward on a broad range of issues of mutual concern, including Iran and Syria," Vietor...

    They’re at it again. The latest public rant against Michelle Obama’s effort to promote low-calorie school lunches was recently caught on tape in Alabama — the usual protest against the federal government meddling in local business. And then it quickly found its way around to the first lady’s posterior.

      NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Violent, thieving mobs have been making headlines across the country for the past few years, and now they have hit New York City. And Maurice Dubois reported in this CBS 2 investigation, the teen mobs have left neighborhoods worried as businesses take matters into their own hands. Judson Bennett, 78, recently ran into a violent group of teens – often described with the once-benign term “flash mob” – as he made his daily trip to buy a newspaper at his favorite news team. “I’m approaching the newsstand, and then suddenly there is a tremendous force...

    North Korea still intends to conduct the country's third nuclear test later this month, despite intense pressure from the United States and the international community. Seemingly unconcerned about threats of new sanctions, Kim Jong-un and his Generals stunned most sane human beings by releasing a YouTube Video that shows New York City engulfed in flames after a missile attack. The video was uploaded to YouTube on Saturday by North Korea's official website, Uriminzokkiri, which is responsible for distributing news, information and propaganda for all state run media. While YouTube users shook their heads in astonishment over the video, North Korean...

    Common sense is both a noun and an adjective. As a noun, common sense—good judgment—is becoming a rare and precious commodity in our world today, especially from Washington politicians; thus, it describes little of what comes out of our nation’s capital. Yet, I have noticed that whoever it is that puts the words in the mouth of Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), has latched on to “common-sense” as an adjective to describe what can only be regarded as tyrannical, unconstitutional dictates that the communist cabal controlling our federal government is currently shoving in the faces of the American...

    (CNSNews.com) - One day after President Obama said "yes," he thinks the Boy Scouts of America should admit homosexuals -- to expose them to "opportunities and leadership" -- dozens of conservative groups are running a newspaper ad, urging the Boy Scouts to "show courage" and "stand for timeless values." The 41 conservative organizations, in a full-page ad in Monday's USA Today, said it would be a "grave mistake" for BSA to change their longstanding policy against having openly homosexual Scout leaders or Scouts. In a Sunday interview with "60 Minutes" Correspondent Scott Pelley, President Obama said the scouts should admit...

    While touting his ostensible “all of the above” energy plan and working the campaign trail not so very long ago, President Obama would justify his many expensive green-energy plans by repeatedly saying something along the lines of, “America consumes 20 percent of the world’s oil, but only has two percent of its reserves” — which is about as bogus a statistic as it gets. America only having two percent of the world’s oil relies on measures of its proven reserves, i.e., the amount of oil that has both been discovered and is technologically and economically feasible to extract, remaining static....

    A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force” -- even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S. The 16-page memo, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News, provides new details about the legal reasoning behind one of the Obama administration’s most secretive and controversial polices: its dramatically increased use of drone strikes against al-Qaida suspects, including those aimed at American citizens, such as the...
