    In early March, the Israeli newspaper Maariv reported Barack Obama had offered Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government the latest in “bunker busting bombs” along with advanced refueling planes in exchange for the PM’s promise to delay any attack against Iranian nuclear facilities until 2013. It was a clear attempt by Obama to bribe the nation of Israel into refraining from war until AFTER the November election. (1) Naturally, Regime spokesmen denied a story so uncomfortable for Obama, especially in light of his already dwindling support among even the most dependably liberal of voting groups—American Jews. And the New York...

    Last week's earnings report from General Motors revealed a troubling statistic for shareholders. GM's market share for North America shrunk from 18.3% a year ago to 16.7% for the latest quarter. Not coincidently, a survey by Yahoo Autos revealed that a full 13% of consumers would now "never" consider purchasing a GM vehicle while another 15% are less likely to purchase. A negative perception of the auto bailout process and the continued political overtones at GM are the reasons for the boycott. Another recent Rasmussen poll showed that 59% of Americans view the auto bailouts as a failure. The...

    Changes in the wording of Selective Service System record-keeping requirements, made days after the opening of an investigation into the alleged forgery of President Barack Obama’s selective service registration form, raise serious questions about U.S. Government intentions. The new rules allow existing copies of documents that may be sought by investigators to be destroyed. The Selective Service System’s new privacy rules were published in the Federal Register on Tuesday, September 20, 2011, four days after the September 16 announcement by World Net Daily that the Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff’s Office “Cold Case Posse” was opening an inquiry with full subpoena...

    The 2012 election has often been described as the most pivotal since 1860. This statement is not hyperbole. If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind. The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama's first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of "transforming America" in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | 05/08/2012
    Texas Congressman Ron Paul appears more interested in influencing the direction of the Republican Party than in running as an independent presidential candidate. But perhaps Democrats should be careful what they wish for: Even if Mitt Romney’s remaining GOP challenger should run as a third party candidate, new Rasmussen Reports surveying finds Romney the winner of a three-way race. The latest national telephone survey shows that 25% of Likely U.S. Voters think Paul should run as a third party candidate. Sixty-one percent (61%) disagree, but 13% more are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.) The national survey...

    Two people have been killed, and at least 24 other people -- one of them a 12-year-old girl -- have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday afternoon. About 1:26 a.m. Sunday, Devon Paramore, 33, of the 8600 block of West 87th Street, was shot in the back and right armpit in the 1300 block of 13th Street and later pronounced dead at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County. The other fatal shooting occurred at 9:09 p.m. on Friday in the city’s Far South Side Pullman neighborhood, where police said they found an unresponsive 16-year-old boy...

    Flopping Aces ^ | 05-08-12 | Warren Beatty
    On Thursday, April 3, 2012, the Barack Obama re-election campaign released “The Life of Julia.” In it are 12 stages in the life of “Julia,” a fictional woman used to demonstrate how Obama’s policies would help her. Throughout the stages in her life, Julia is depicted as someone who benefits from the programs either created by or funded by Obama. The obvious message is that a vote for Obama will keep the largesse flowing for all, not just fictional Julia. One very real problem with the “Julia” concept is that throughout the 12 stages nowhere is it mentioned that...

    Have you heard about the GenVeg campaign? No, it’s not a new youth-vote drive. It’s a collaboration between Birdseye and Lady M to promote their frozen vegetables and her No Child’s Fat Behind program. The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), which works with the private sector and its honorary chair First Lady Michelle Obama to end the childhood obesity crisis, today announced that Birds Eye, America's leading vegetable company, is launching a three-year effort to encourage kids to look at vegetables in a whole new way. "Birds Eye understands that talking to kids differently about eating their vegetables is...

    The Heritage Foundation ^ | May 4, 2012 | By Rea Hederman, Jr. and James Sherk
    The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the economy added 115,000 jobs in April and the unemployment rate declined to 8.1 percent from 8.2 percent. However, further declines in the percentage of Americans in the labor force explain this slightly lower unemployment rate. Indeed, the labor force participation rate dipped to a 30-year low as many unemployed workers simply left the labor force. The April report is further evidence that the job market has cooled from its more rapid growth in the first quarter. This slowdown will likely spur calls for more stimulus spending. However, government spending comes at the...

    U.S. President Barack Obama said last week that the Al-Qaeda was “on a path to defeat,” but Seth Jones, a former U.S. Special Operations Command senior adviser, says the evidence he has collected points to the contrary.

Jones spoke with the U.S. News website last week about his theory of “waves” of violence from Al-Qaeda and what needs to be done to prevent the next cycle. “When you look at fatality data, what you see is three major waves of activity,” he...

After meeting with Panetta, Liang told a news conference that the two sides are committed to continue building a sound, stable and reliable military-to-military relationship through more communication. "Facing the complicated and serious security situation in Asia-Pacific, both of us agree that it is in line with our own interests to strengthen the cooperation between the two militaries in order to protect the peace...

    John Kerry acting as key Obama surrogate, fuelling secretary of state buzz By: Lee-Anne Goodman, The Canadian Press 30/04/2012 WASHINGTON - John Kerry, the Democratic senator whose patrician ways helped seal his defeat to George W. Bush in the 2004 presidential election, is emerging one of Barack Obama's top lieutenants in the U.S. president's battle for re-election. Kerry's foreign policy gravitas makes him a natural to tout Obama's achievements on everything from ordering the successful hit on 9-11 mastermind Osama bin Laden a year ago to working to topple Libya's Moammar Gadhafi. The long-serving Massachusetts lawmaker has been the chairman...

    Ever since he burst on the national scene, up from obscurity as an Illinois State Senator addicted to voting present, his purported "likeability" has been cited as one of Barack Obama's principal political assets. Polling has historically shown that even as the public may disapprove his policies, they tell pollsters that they like him personally. To be honest, he has always left me cold, because I recognize in him the sort of figure I encountered many times in my academic career: someone who masks his lack of substance with a big smile, jokes (sometimes mean jokes at the expense of...

    The Columbia Daily Tribune ^ | May 7, 2012 | Rich Lowry
    In the competition for the creepiest campaign material of 2012, we might already have a winner. It is "The Life of Julia," the Obama re-election team's cartoon chronicle of a fictional woman who is dependent on government every step of her life. The phrase "cradle-to-grave welfare state" originated with Clement Attlee's socialist government in post-World War II Britain. Back then, it was meant as a boastful description of a new age of government activism. Subsequently, it became a term of derision for critics of an overweening government. In the spirit of Attlee, the Obama campaign revives the concept of "cradle...

    The Ogden Standard-Examiner's The Political Surf ^ | May 7, 2012 | Doug Gibson, Opinion Editor
    President Obama’s new web campaign ad, “The Life of Julia,” (watch) is perhaps the most blatantly statist political advertisement yet from one of the two major parties. Pitched, I suspect to single women, primarily those college-aged and worried about the responsibilities of adulthood, it posits that government programs are essential to every stage of a woman’s life. It’s fascinating for its sheer ideological purity. From Head Start as a toddler to Social Security and community gardens volunteering late in life, big government is the most intimate partner of Julia’s life. Once Julia’s taken advantage of ObamaCare to stay on her...

    President Obama entered the national spotlight with a rousing 2004 Democratic convention speech that talked about how it was wrong "to slice-and-dice our country into red states and blue states." Last week he reiterated the point in a tweet to his followers, saying that "there are no red states or blue states, just the United States." But when it comes to the economic recovery, there has been a clear difference. It turns out, in fact, that blue states have done worse economically than have red states under Obama, according to an IBD analysis of various government economic data.
