    The Obama campaign recently did a motivational video on the origin of their slogan "Fired Up, Ready to Go". They used clips from his last campaign stop before the election. I used some clips and soundbytes from it, too, in my own anti-Obama motivational video using just Ready to Go but Fired and Ready to Go works, too.

    President Obama told journalists that their effort to give both sides of a story conveys unwarranted credibility to his opponents. “Reporters may think it’s fair or balanced to juxtapose contending views on controversial issues,” the President lectured. “This creates an impression that there might be merit on both sides. But must wrong be given a platform to contend with right? Must sin be given a voice to counterbalance virtue?” The president urged media representatives to “not shy away from your duty to report the truth nor dilute it with a dollop of lies just to attain an appearance of unbiased...

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The U.S. Navy said Monday it has deployed a second aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf region amid rising tensions with Iran over its disputed nuclear program. The deployment of the nuclear-powered USS Enterprise along with the Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group marks one of the few times the Navy has had two aircraft carriers operating in waters near the Persian Gulf, said Cmdr. Amy Derrick-Frost of the Bahrain-based 5th Fleet. The two carriers will support the American military operations in Afghanistan and anti-piracy efforts off Somalia's coast and in the Gulf of Aden,...

But I think it will be good for this country to pay higher gas prices. In Europe they pay $10 per gallon. We are used to using too much energy in this country and must be forced to cut back.“ Taxpayer :” Are you nuts? IF you raised gasoline prices to $10 per gallon it would kill our already weak economy. “ Obama supporter :” No. High gas...

    On April 3 Salon.com published an article by Arthur Goldwag that amounts to nothing more or less than a 1,700-word screed whose sole purpose appears to be branding the entire conservative movement as a bunch of “twisted,” gullible, conspiracy kooks who’ll believe anything as long as it comes from the right sources. In a bit of uncomfortable irony, Goldwag demonstrates his own dearth of intellectual credibility and literary deftness by making one attempt after the other to denigrate a novel and thus deprive it of any possible potency. Goldwag’s target: Philip Dru: Administrator. Story of Tomorrow. Philip Dru is a...

    “The book relates a couple out of the dozen-and-a-half conversations that I had with him,” Lott told The Daily Caller. ”But they were all very short, cut off by Obama turning his back on me and walking away.” “He wouldn’t shake hands. It was very clear that Obama disagreed on the gun issue and acted as if he believed that people who he disagreed with were not just wrong, but evil. Unlike other liberal academics who usually enjoyed discussing opposing ideas, Obama simply showed disdain.” . . .

    Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio told a radio host today he’s met with Republicans – including every one of the GOP presidential candidates – and has come to the conclusion they’re as guilty as Democrats of “hiding” questions about Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president. As WND reported, Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse conducted an extensive examination of documents released by the White House last April purported to be Obama’s original, long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration card, only to conclude there is probable cause the documents are actually forgeries. Yet despite his findings, Arpaio told “Aaron Klein Investigative...

    Couric: Let's take a look at what you said recently regarding the upcoming Supreme Court decision on your health care legislation: “I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.” You claim it would be "unprecedented" if the justices overturn this law. But isn't that the proper role of the courts, and hasn't it happened many times before? Obama: Clearly, I was talking about important laws like this, which were enacted during my administation. So since...

    Barbra Streisand won't sing at Obama's L.A. fund-raiserBy Todd Cunningham | Reuters – 2 hrs 29 mins ago LOS ANGELES, April 8 (TheWrap.com) - Barbra Streisand is still backing President Obama's re-election campaign, but she won't be singing for the president on his next fund-raising stop in Southern California. Published reports had suggested that the singer -- who has lent her lungs to Democrats dating back to John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson -- would entertain at a May 10 event to be hosted by DreamWorks Animation's Jeffrey Katzenberg. Party officials have set a $2 million goal for the event.

    In President Obama’s address to the Associated Press Luncheon on Wednesday, he claimed that he is preventing disaster. Republican congressman Paul Ryan’s proposed budget cuts would still allow publicly held debt to increase by $5.5 trillion over the next ten years, but to Obama, they mean Americans will be dying from starvation and defenseless from hurricanes and other natural disasters. “Demagoguery” is not too strong of a word to describe Obama’s speech. Two million mothers and young children will be left without “access to healthy food.” Violent crime will soar and illegal aliens will flood across our borders because of...

    While sitting in service, I was jarred by a verse that we read about unleavened bread. It covered both foreign and "Native-born". Exodus 12:19 For seven days no yeast is to be found in your houses. And anyone, whether foreigner or native-born, who eats anything with yeast in it must be cut off from the community of Israel. hmm, so this whole natural born stuff isn't some uniquely American "racists" thing that our founders invented? Recognition of native or natural born is something people of other nations and people have always been concerned with. Why? Anyway, I thought it was...

    Orange County Register ^ | 4-8-2012 | The Orange County Register Editorial Board
    President Barack Obama, stung by indications the Supreme Court may overturn his landmark health care law, reacted last week unlike a constitutional scholar, which he was at the University of Chicago, and more like a politician seeking reelection, which he is. The president pronounced: "I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress." Mr. Obama appeared to be warning the high court against overturning his signature legislative achievement, by invalidating an act of Congress. But even...

    President Barack Obama’s White House counsel has essentially told Congressman Darrell Issa and Senator Charles Grassley to “dream on” if they think a recent request to interview former National Security Staffer Kevin O’Reilly about Operation Fast and Furious is going to happen. The Gun Rights Examiner has obtained a copy of an April 5 letter sent to Issa and Grassley by Kathryn Ruemmler, counsel to the president. In the letter, she tells them: Over six months ago, the White House produced documents responsive to your prior request for communications between Mr. O’Reilly and ATF agent William Newell that relate to...
