    Daily Mail The U.S. Army's Combating Terrorism Center posted an explosive report early this morning that contains what are the last letters Osama bin Laden wrote before the raid that killed him a year ago.  The biggest bombshell is this: He wanted to target planes that Barack Obama and Gen. David Petraeus to promote the "utterly unprepared" Joe Biden to the office of presidency.From the letter bin Laden authored, the mission was of "anticipating and spotting the visits of Obama or Petraeus to Afghanistan or Pakistan to target the aircraft of either one of them." They are not to target...
  • Bin Laden letter: Kill Obama, leave ‘totally unprepared' Biden alone

    Osama bin Laden aimed to assassinate President Barack Obama but directed fellow al-Qaida fighters to leave Vice President Joe Biden alone, describing him as "totally unprepared" to take over and predicting a "crisis" in America if that happened, according to a newly declassified letter from the terrorist mastermind. In the missive, part of a trove of documents seized by Navy SEALs in the raid that killed bin Laden one year ago, bin Laden asks for an update on a plan to kill Obama or Gen. David Petraeus either in Pakistan or at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. (Obama made a...

    While I am waxing sarcastic I will explain why. Romney and/or his surrogates have repeatedly let us know either implicitly or explicitly that when Obama makes hay of an issue (like killing Bin Laden or campaigning on college campuses on the issue of college loan interest rates, etc, etc) they will call him out for distracting voters from his abyssmal jobs record. This allows Romney to operate in and on a range of issues, while isolating Obama to one issue. Romney's political mindset is easy to follow as it flows from his business mindset: Romney sits and the end the...

    Those conservatives who argue against "birthright citizenship" have just been thrown under the same bus as the "birthers" -- whether or not they like it, or the GOP admits it. The mainstream media, longtime foes against reform of the anchor baby practice, have been happy to help. And instead of quietly watching while a sizeable portion of the Republican party is run over, as in the case of the "birthers," we now have the GOP establishment lending the media a hand in brushing aside many immigration reform advocates -- by pushing the selection of Senator Marco Rubio for the VP...

    The political world was transfixed yesterday by the Obama campaign’s release of a Web slide show called “The Life of Julia.” It takes about two minutes to get through, and its purpose is to wow American women with all the glorious government goodies they can and should claim throughout their lives — just so long as Mitt Romney doesn’t get elected and take them all away.

    Even when he visits American troops serving in harm’s way it’s still all about him. Barack Obama gave a shoutout to himself while speaking to US troops in Afghanistan this week. “We got me in the house!” Oh, yippie. President Obama gave a shout-out to President Obama during a surprise visit to Afghanistan on Tuesday. Speaking to American troops gathered at Bagram Air Base, the president called out the names of several military units “in the house”—who cheered upon hearing their name—before adding: “And we’ve got me in the house.”

Our version shows how conservative policies, like the ones outlined in Heritage’s Saving the American Dream plan, can empower Julia and all Americans without government interference at every stage of life. **Slideshow

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Snerdley just asked me an interesting question, and I want to pose the question to you in my own words. After 39 weeks of unemployment over 8%, after an unemployment rate that's been higher for longer than any since the Great Depression -- with only 115,000 jobs added -- even if you are Barack Obama, don't you care a little about your legacy? Don't you want some improvement somewhere in real life, not just a rate drop from 8.2% to 8.1%? Don't you want something that's gonna add to your legacy, make you look good to the...

    Facts are sometimes nasty, persistent things that get in the way of the best political spin. President Obama likes to say that oil production is up and that the rise in gasoline prices is not his fault, but the facts challenge his words. Energy production is up, but only due to policies and practices set in motion ten years ago by the George W. Bush administration, and production is up only on private fields. (Snip) Economists estimate that for every $0.01 increase in a gallon of gasoline sustained for one full year, the economy loses $1 billion for that year.

Obama returns to Southern California in June for another high-dollar fete, featuring a performance by Pink. President Barack Obama's dinner with George Clooney has officially sold out, and campaign sources are telling The Hollywood Reporter that the event is expected to raise up to $12 million for the president's re-election bid, making it the biggest presidential fundraiser in U.S. history.

    WASHINGTON, May 4 (Reuters) - U.S. employers cut back on hiring in April and more people stopped looking for work, dimming hopes the economy was turning a corner just as President Barack Obama steps up his re-election campaign. Employers added 115,000 workers to their payrolls last month, the Labor Department said on Friday. That was well below economists' expectations. The unemployment rate ticked down by a tenth of a point to a three-year low of 8.1 percent, but only because a drop in the number of people hunting for jobs shrank the labor force. It was the third straight month...

    The Social Security Administration last month told its disability-claims judges they are no longer to seek out information from websites when deciding cases — taking away a tool some of those judges say would help in uncovering fraud. Agency officials said reviewers can't trust information posted online, and also said the mere act of typing in queries could compromise protected private information, so they shouldn't try to access anything. Social Security's ban covers all Internet sites, including social media such as Facebook. But Sen. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma Republican and a top taxpayer watchdog, said avoiding the Internet means giving up...

    The Obama administration tightened rules on hydraulic fracturing Friday, requiring the disclosure of chemicals used in the process when done on federal and American Indian lands. The new rules will also require additional testing of oil and gas well construction and require the industry to have a management plan for the water used in the process. "This proposed rule will strengthen the requirements for hydraulic fracturing performed on federal and Indian lands in order to build public confidence and protect the health of American communities, while ensuring continued access to the important resources that make up our energy economy," the...

    Terror Trends Bulletin ^ | 4 May 2012 | Unknown
    Late last week a State Department spokesman uttered “The war on terror is over.” That utterance was followed up by President Obama’s surprise trip to Afghanistan (“coincidentally” on the anniversary of the operation that killed Osama Bin Laden, or so we are told…). While in Afghanistan, Obama gave a political speech aimed at folks back home in America in which he echoed the sentiments of his State Department spokesman in essentially declaring Al Qaeda beaten. Before we deconstruct this politically motivated fantasy, we should probably point out that we are not now, nor were we truly ever engaged in a...

    One day, a scorpion reached a river he wanted to cross. He saw a frog on the other side and called out, "Would you be so kind as to give me a ride on your back across the river?" "How do I know that if I help you, you wont try to kill me?" asked the frog hesitantly. "Because," the scorpion replied, "If I try to kill you, then I would die, too, for you see I cannot swim!" So the frog agreed. He swam over, and the scorpion crawled onto the frog's back. Halfway across the river, the frog...

    He was tall and darkly handsome, in a chiseled sort of way. Clearly intelligent. Quiet and attentive, yet distant in a way that intrigued her as they both drew closer together during those long evenings sipping cheap wine and practicing sophistication on each other. Both were new to adulthood, trying out the public personalities each wanted the world to see, not the inner tremors that corroded their intestines during long nights when dark personal fears crept into the corners of their lonely apartments. Like most others from somewhere else who found themselves living in New York City, they told each...

    This is what a stagnant economy looks like. The gain of 115,000 jobs is less than enough to keep up with population increases, and was below the median economic forecast for April. The only reason that the unemployment rate “fell” to 8.1% is because the labor force participation rate keeps dropping. If you stop looking for work, you aren’t unemployed. But you’re not employed either. You’re just “missing.” You don’t count. Welcome to the country we now live in: the Stag-Nation. UPDATE: Labor force participation rate drops by a staggering 522,000 to the lowest level since 1981. That, btw, was...

    I know you’ve all heard about Big Guy’s second composite girlfriend by now: #Julia, who is being exploited like crazy over at #Compositewoman. It looks to me like a blatant continuation of the Republican War on Women. For one thing there are a lot of offensive jokes flying around over there, like this one: “What’s the difference between a composite girlfriend and a pit bull? I already told you: a pit bull is delicious.”
