    TULSA, OKLAHOMA, March 8, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – He probably isn’t losing much sleep at night about the possibility of losing his party’s presidential nomination, but President Barack Obama did lose 14 counties in Tuesday’s Oklahoma Democratic primary to Randall Terry. The pro-life activist, who founded Operation Rescue, won 12 Oklahoma counties and won more votes than Barack Obama in 14. In three counties, Obama was bested by Jim Rogers, the state Democratic Party’s U.S. Senate candidate in 2010. Statewide, Obama won 57 percent of the Democratic vote. Initial reports said Terry won 18 percent, but other estimates indicate Terry won...

    EGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: There's an interesting story to start with today. This is a Politico story, and it was out last night. Obviously this story was written before this morning's unemployment report came out. Now, the unemployment number, 8.3%, no change, and you would not believe the way this is being reported. Why, we are in a roaring-back economy. We have got a recovery that's unprecedented. Have you noticed it, Dawn? No, I mean the reporting. Wherever you look on radio, television, and print, you would believe that we are sitting atop the greatest powder keg of an economic recovery...
  • Obama spends $10 million to develop $50 light bulb

    The Obama administration created a $10 million L Prize to award the manufacturer who came up with an affordable and efficient light bulb. One would think the marketplace would take care of that but our federal government no more believes in free enterprise than I believe in global warming. This program began under President Bush. Ah yes, who knows more about efficiency than the federal government? In August, Philips announced: “The U.S. Department of Energy today announced that Philips Lighting North America has won the 60-watt replacement bulb category of the Bright Tomorrow Lighting Prize (L Prize) competition. The Department...

    The Chevrolet Volt is everything that is wrong with Washington on four wheels, and investors (that’s you and me) should be furious. Wrong #1 : The Volt should be re-named the Vote. Who can forget that Super Bowl ad, with the pseudo-assembly line of Volts rolling through Hamtramck, Michigan, and the voice overlay that “this isn’t the car we wanted to build; it’s the car America had to build…from the heart of Detroit to the help [sic] of the country.” How true—corporate welfare on wheels, buying votes in a state vital to the President’s re-election. There is simply no...

    Drug enforcement chiefs have for the first time identified the Vatican as a possible centre for money laundering from criminal activity. The report by the American State Department's International Narcotics Control Strategy lists the Holy See as one of 68 countries including Yemen, Algeria and North Korea, describing it as a 'country of concern' for money laundering or other financial crimes. Officials said they had placed the Vatican on its watch list because of the 'huge amount of cash' that flows into the tiny city state and also because it was still unclear how effective anti money laundering legislation introduced...

    The leader of the occupation in the video — Robert L. Wilkins of the Harvard Black Law Students Association — was nominated by President Obama on May 20, 2010 to be considered for judge of the U.S. District Court, District of Columbia. He is now a sitting judge in that position. (snip)Not mentioned in the press release: that Wilkins once led an illegal occupation of a law school building to demand the school hire based on skin color, a protest primarily focused on supporting the actions of radical bigot Derrick Bell.

    WASHINGTON — One year ago this week, I wrote a column titled "Crude Cruelty," which covered a jump in the cost of motor fuel and a corresponding spike in prices for food and rising unemployment. Government "experts" attributed the bad news to "supply disruptions" and "uncertainty" caused by unrest in Libya. Today Moammar Gadhafi is gone, but the average price for a gallon of gasoline in the United States is $3.79 — up 27 cents from a year ago. Unsurprisingly, mortgage defaults are up 22 percent, and orders for durable goods — cars, appliances, machinery and aircraft — are...

    In partial fulfillment of Andrew Breitbart's promise to "vet" the President this time, the Breitbart.com team posted a video of President Barack Obama as a law student at Harvard. It also ran on Hannity tonight. The video shows the young Obama asking his fellow law students to "Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell." Professor Derrick Bell, the object of young Obama's adoration, was an associate of Reverend Jeremiah Wright and a committed radical. Bell was a proponent of Critical Race Theory, which views virtually all relationships through a lens of perceived race-based...

    Why The Media Wants Romney To Win The Nomination So Badly This recent item in the New York Times below is in good part what's behind the liberal media's desire to see Mitt Romney get the nomination. Now, I don't see Romney quite this way. But the left does. Religion, wealth, a "retro vision of the country." In short, in Romney they see everything they have been working to destroy for decades. They even want to pretend he isn't flawed, hence the over-looking of his many gaffes and retorts that invite his being slammed. But they don't slam him, ......

    American Pundit ^ | March 9, 2012 | Stephan Tawney
    Derrick Bell, the radical left-wing professor with whom Barack Obama developed a long association, once admitted during a television interview that he, “lives to harass white folks”. Video emerged the other day of Obama as a law school student embracing Bell’s teachings on Critical Race Theory, the idea that the American political and justice systems are inherently racist. Obama says in the video, “Open your hearts and open your minds to the words of Prof. Derrick Bell,” before physically embracing Bell. White House records show Bell repeatedly visited Obama in 2010.

    It is an impressive thing to watch Barack Obama smile and lie through his teeth. It is another equally impressive thing to watch the left wing press zombies sit with their drool buckets, nodding their heads without question, thoroughly intimidated. Fox News reporter Ed Henry asked Obama "Your critics will say on Capitol Hill that you want gas prices to go higher, because you have said before that will wean the American people off fossil fuels onto renewable fuels. How do you respond to that?" And Obama responded: “Ed, just from a political perspective, do you think the President of...

    The economy added 227,000 jobs in February, but the unemployment rate didn't change at all. Woe is the White House -- which would love to have the lowest rate possible heading into the general election. But why didn't the unemployment rate change if the economy added jobs? The unemployment rate measures the percent of the labor force that is unemployed. The unemployed are individuals who have actively looked for work over the previous four weeks. Looking for work can mean having a job interview, sending out resumes, or even something as simple as calling friends or relatives in hopes of...

    GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich this morning chided the Obama administration, saying the president has “a goal getting us to pay European-level prices” for gas. “This president and his secretary of anti-energy, Dr. Chu, have as a goal getting us to pay European-level prices of $8 or $9. Dr. Chu was clear about that before he became secretary. He wants us to get to be a European-level price structure of $8 or $9 a gallon,” said Gingrich. “He said this week, in testifying in the House, he has ‘no intention of trying to lower the price of oil or the...

    Former U.S. Comptroller David Walker has warned that the U.S. could slide into a debt scenario similar to what Greece is experiencing. “The truth is if you count total U.S. government debt as compared to many of the European nations that are in the news, we’re already worse than they are, and we’re two years away from where Greece was when it had its crisis,” Walker said in a recent interview with CYInterview.com. But he said that the size and economic power of the U.S. means it would have more time to right itself before disaster. Walker served as U.S....

    These guys at Government Motors just continue to outdo themselves. Just as Chevy Volt owners are getting over being called idiots by the head of Audi, GM comes up with an ad that lends credence to the accusation. A supposed Volt owner tells how she loves her car because her friends think it looks like a spaceship and it saves a "crapload" of money. I laid off the original story of the Audi head saying Volts were for idiots. The .001 percenters who bought Volts have a right to spend their money as they see fit and I gave...
