    The President’s disclosure that he now accepts so-called “Gay marriage” has received a good bit of political analysis. I am no political prognosticator and this is not a political blog. But when the President invokes Christ and the “golden rule,” to justify his decision, now I think we have something to discuss on a blog like this.We have discussed at great length the problem with homosexual “marriage” before HERE, HERE HERE, and HERE) there is no reason restate it all again. Just click through to read those sorts of articles. Further I make reference in this post to Scripture’s consistent...

    The Politico ^ | May 11, 2012 | Donovan Slack
    Gallup is out with a new poll suggesting a whopping 40 percent of Americans say President Obama's newly public support of gay marriage will affect their votes. Of those, 26 percent say it will make them less likely to vote for Obama, while 13 percent say it will make them more likely to vote for him. The critical number in the poll, though is for independents - 23 percent of whom said the gay marriage support makes it less likely they will vote for Obama. The survey is the first since the president publicly endorsed gay marriage on Wednesday with...
  • Trolling for Dirt on the President's List (O targets private citizen for supporting opponent)

    Wall Street Journal ^ | May 11, 2012 | Kim Strassel
    Here's what happens when the president of the United States publicly targets a private citizen for the crime of supporting his opponent. Frank VanderSloot is the CEO of Melaleuca Inc. The 63-year-old has run that wellness-products company for 26 years out of tiny Idaho Falls, Idaho. Last August, Mr. VanderSloot gave $1 million to Restore Our Future, the Super PAC that supports Mitt Romney. Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, "Keeping GOP Honest," took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney. Titled "Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney's donors," the...

    On Wednesday, I pointed out that Barack Obama’s so-called “all of the above” energy plan, as explained on his campaign website, had a very large omission. This graphic represented the energy policy on which Obama was campaigning for re-election:In case the graph on the left isn’t clear enough, here it is by itself:Oddly, the “all of the above” approach excluded coal, which sources 45% of all electricity produced in the US, sustains more than a half-million jobs, and allows for lower prices to consumers and businesses. After nearly losing in coal-dependent West Virginia’s Democratic primary to a felon currently in...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Obama is at the Clooney fundraiser last night, where, by the way, the story on that is, the original expectation was ten million. That's what they were gonna raise. But then, our brave, courageous president went out there and said that he thinks the states ought to determine gay marriage, and that gay people should be able to get married. Lo and behold, the floodgates opened, and an additional five million was raised at the Clooney fundraiser. I'm not believing that either. The whole thing is a crock. They got 15 from the get-go. ou got Obama...

    They are from the federal government and here to help. Or so goes the classic line by the last decent president. Federal transportation Sec.

We need to make sure that the commitment is there to obligate the money, LaHood lectured. In short, the feds are threatening,...

    Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn told The Daily Caller on Wednesday that he thinks Attorney General Eric Holder needs to comply with the congressional subpoena demanding documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious. Cornyn also said he thinks Holders demonstrable failure to comply with House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issas subpoena for Fast and Furious documents is an indicator of his overall disregard for congressional oversight. Its abundantly clear that when it comes to cooperating with Congress, the Attorney Generals arrogance knows no bounds, Cornyn told TheDC. President Barack Obama now has a responsibility to step forward and make...

    National Review ^ | 5/11/12 | Michelle Malkin
    While the White House and its media water-carriers try to distract the American public with gay-marriage talk and half-century-old tales of Mitt Romneys prep-school pranks, the inconvenient truth remains: President Obama is responsible for perpetrating jaw-dropping, job-killing scientific fraud. And his minions are still trying to cover it up. New internal e-mails disclosed by the House Natural Resources Committee this week show that a supposedly exculpatory report on the administrations doctored drilling moratorium analysis issued by the Department of Interiors inspector generals office was itself incomplete, misleading, and unsubstantiated. Even more damning, the documents reveal that the White...

    With all of his other competition out of the way, no one should be surprised how Mitt Romney stacks up against other Republicans in the Oregon primary, set for next Tuesday. A new SurveyUSA poll shows Romney with 58% of the vote, with Ron Paul in a distant second at 14%, which means that the May 15th primary will be as drama-free as possible. However, the poll also shows Romney within the margin of error against Barack Obama in the Democratic stronghold and gaining: In a November match-up between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney for President of the United...

    Since it took the "coolest man in America" years of soul-searching and some "unwelcome prompting" from Dimwit Biden to finally come out of the closet on gay marriage, one must wonder: (1) how can liberal media chatterheards and their leftist Hollywood phonies be so quick to condemn anyone who opposes gay marriage when their standard bearer (who is eminently smarter than the rest of us) took years to see the light; (2) why is Biden being forced to apologize for (allegedly) forcing Obama to simply "do the courageous" thing - shouldn't he receive praise for prompting the otherwise cowardly Prez;...

    As devotees of Barack Obama know all too well, qualities that made him so attractive as a candidate an affinity for subtle arguments, a tendency to carefully weigh his options have at times proved less useful in his role as president. That carefulness has been read as indecisiveness. The subtle arguments have sounded, to some ears, like hedging. In response, the president has simplified his rhetoric. The nuances of the 2009 Cairo speech about relations between the U.S. and the Muslim world have given way to chest thumping over killing Osama bin Laden. The sophistication of the speech...

    Here’s an old, bad (really bad) joke: During the 1973 war, the Israeli Army determined that at least one third of all Arab forces arrayed against them were named Mohammed. They quickly developed a new tactic. The IDF troops would take cover and holler out, “Mohammed!” In response to the call, one third of the Arab troops would jump out of their cover, and the Israeli forces would pick them off.You couldn’t fool the Arabs for long. They figured out that at least one third of all IDF troops arrayed against them were named David. They too quickly developed a...

    (CBS News) Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Thursday that while he opposes same-sex marriage, he is "fine" with gay couples adopting children. The presumptive nominee also declined to criticize President Obama's reversal on the issue, saying he would "respect the right of the president to reach the conclusion he has." In his most detailed comments to date on the issue of civil rights for gay people, Romney told Fox News television host Neil Cavuto, "I know many gay couples that are able to adopt children. That's fine. But my preference is that we ... continue to define marriage as...

    In obscure, blue-collar towns across Appalachia -- places that most Americans have never seen -- generations of coal miners have toiled away at back-breaking labor to power American homes and industry. Now, as many as 200,000 of them who dig, process, transport and burn America's most abundant fuel are threatened by EPA's latest coal rule. It imposes a standard for emissions that is all but impossible for many plants to meet. It requires coal-fired plants to release no more than 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt hour. The only means for many older plants to attain that standard is...

    American Thinker ^ | May 11, 2012 | Shoshana Bryen
    In early 2011, President Obama announced that the United States would sign the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Now the U.N. wants us to give Mt. Rushmore to the Indians. James Anaya, U.N. special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, spent twelve days in the U.S. meeting with representatives of Native Americans. Returning to Geneva, he urged the government to turn over control of lands considered sacred to the tribes, including the Mt. Rushmore site. It was bound to happen.With typical overstatement, the president said as he announced U.S. participation in the Declaration, "The aspiration it...
