    "Upon a close inspection of the photo Savannah Guthrie took of Obama's long form Birth Certificate, I've found that the document states that Obama was born in "Honolulu, Huwaii." This could be one reason why Obama and the State of Hawaii refused to allow the public to see this document. Obama's lawyers have argued this would be too much of an embarassment for him to produce this document in Court."

    John R. Lott Jr. and Grover G. Norquist are the authors of Debacle: Obama’s War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future. Lott, a former colleague of the president’s at the University of Chicago Law School, answers some questions about the depth of the debacle and the way out from National Review Online’s Kathryn Jean Lopez. KATHRYN JEAN LOPEZ: John, you say that when you were a faculty colleague of Barack Obama, he tagged you as “the gun guy” and announced that “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.” That...

    Wealth implosion: It's not just housing By Tami Luhby @CNNMoney June 19, 2012: 2:32 PM ET NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Americans' net worth collapsed in recent years, but don't blame the housing market for it all. A CNNMoney analysis of new Census Bureau data shows that if you strip out the effects of the housing collapse, median household net worth still fell by 25% between 2005 and 2010. The decline was driven largely by the plummeting stock market, which devastated Americans' portfolios and retirement accounts. Overall, median household net worth declined 35% to $66,740 in 2010. The median worth of...
  • Job Openings drop 8 Percent; Private Sector Shoulders nearly all of the Pain

    The CNBC headline says it all: "Job Openings Report Show Market is…Really, Really Bad" - not the stuff of which re-election campaigns are made. It is all about the newest JOLTS (Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey) report from the Labor Department that new job openings declined by 325,000 in April; an 8% drop in just one month.  New hires also declined in April by 160,000.  Nearly 9-out-of-10 of the decline in job openings was in the private sector that President Obama claims is "doing fine."  "The reading for April job openings offered by employers retreated sharply from its highest...
  • Barack Obama’s 20 Most Impossibly Self-Absorbed Moments

    SOLIPSISM [sol-ip-siz-uhm] (noun): 1) Philosophy: the theory that only the self exists, or can be proved to exist. 2) Extreme preoccupation with and indulgence of one’s feelings, desires, etc.; egoistic self-absorption. 3) Barack Obama. President Obama is undoubtedly many things to many people. Liberals see him as a genius, conservatives see him as a meddlesome dilettante. Liberals fawn over rhetorical skills, conservatives say the credit goes to his teleprompter. Liberals think he knows it all, conservatives think he’s a know-it-all. Fine. But if there’s an attribute central to Barack Hussein Obama which all objective, reasonable people should be able to...

    Barack Obama made some female members of the Congressional Black Caucus pretty angry. When asked about what he was going to do to reach out to Hillary's supporters, he said that it was up to them to help him heal the divide and that women should really just "get over it."

    Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show. According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000). Calculating the median salary for each gender required some assumptions to be made based on the employee names. When unclear, every effort was taken to determine the appropriate gender. The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his failure to immediately endorse the Lilly Ledbetter...

    Barack Obama's administration supplied the Mexican drug cartels with thousands of high-powered assault weapons pursuant to an operation dubbed Fast and Furious which have killed over 200 people, including border patrol agent Brian Terry, and now in Nixonian-style all the President's men are engaged in a coverup campaign which includes outright lies and obstructionist schemes before the Congressional committee investigating the bloody mess. Yesterday a clearly exacerbated House Oversight Committee was left with no option but to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt after he refused to produce relevant documents to investigators by relying upon the new-found claim of...

    Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said on Wednesday he’s concerned about what President Barack Obama’s administration is keeping from the American people about Operation Fast and Furious. “I have tried to be very patient and judicious and responsible in my statements up to this point, and to give the administration and Eric Holder the benefit of the doubt,” Rubio said in an appearance on conservative radio host Laura Ingraham’s program. “I think after today we now begin to wonder what many have begun to wonder… What are [members of the Obama Administration] hiding?” On Wednesday Obama asserted executive privilege over...

Seidl Last week, Michelle Malkin stoked the conservative fire after she challenged Juan Williams for calling her “just” a blogger. But if that was stoking the fire, what she did Wednesday night on “Hannity” to liberal Tamara Holder was torching the place with napalm. Malkin was a guest along with Holder on a segment talking about the day’s Fast and Furious news(Obama granting executive privilege and Holder being held in contempt).About three minutes in, Holder tried to...

The letter is here. The Committee will vote later today on a resolution to hold Holder in contempt of Congress. The Committee Report in support of the contempt resolution is here. A fact sheet on the contempt resolution is here. Fast & Furious was a program implemented by the Arizona office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, in Sept. 2009 through January 2011. In F&F, BATFE lied...

    Hotair ^ | 06/21/2012 | Ed Morrissey
    This are actually two questions, both equally important, thanks to the calendar. Will Barack Obama's claims of executive privilege work legally, and will it work politically? We're more likely to find the answer to the second question before we find the answer to the first, as the presidential election will arrive before any definitive court ruling on the action yesterday from Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. In my column for The Fiscal Times, I predict that Obama will lose on both counts: A Congressional Research Service analysis from 2008 makes the need for presidential involvement in a claim of...
  • Border agent's parents criticize Obama

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The parents of a slain border agent say when President Barack Obama invoked executive privilege regarding Operation Fast and Furious, it compounded the tragedy. In the gun-walking operation, agents of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Arizona allowed weapons they believed to be illicitly purchased to cross the border to track them to high-level arms traffickers. The agents lost track of several hundred weapons and two of the guns that "walked" in the operation were found at the scene of the slaying of U.S. border agent Brian Terry.

    UPDATE 4:14 PM: Attorney General Eric Holder has been voted in contempt of Congress by the House Oversight Committee by 23-17. The vote came down after three Demcratic amendments to the contempt charge were voted down. An amendment introduced by Rep. Trey Gowdy rendering President Obama's invocation of executive privilege not applicable or relevant to this case at this time. The contempt charge will now move to the full House next week. Capitol Hill- Attorney General Eric Holder got a temporary lifeline from President Obama today just minutes before the House Oversight Committee started debate over whether to hold Holder...

    The Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal, largely downplayed by the mainstream media for months, can no long be contained. President Barack Obama granted an eleventh hour written request by his embattled Attorney General Eric Holder and invoked executive privilege, withholding documents and communications by administration officials that occurred after Feb. 4, 2011. Those communications have been subpoenaed by House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA), who had warned Mr. Holder that he would be held in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn them over. On Wednesday, Issa made good on his promise. The Committee approved...

    The Fast and Furious investigation has finally handed House Republicans a prize they’ve long sought: a legal smackdown of the Obama administration. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) was able to show skeptical conservatives that his spine could stay stiff under pressure from President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder by locking arms with Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on a contempt of Congress vote Wednesday. There was no daylight — at least publicly — between Boehner and Issa, a dynamic the White House was desperately seeking. But the victories could come with a cost. House Republicans’ hot pursuit of Holder doesn’t...
