    From Carter's 1980 Acceptance Speech: "It's a make-believe world, a world of good guys and bad guys, where some politicians shoot first and ask questions later. No hard choices, no sacrifice, no tough decisions--it sounds too good to be true, and it is." http://www.4president.org/speeches/carter1980convention.htm This video shows Obama using an old Carter line.

    Anyone who understands that such concepts as real democracy, capitalism, and individual freedom are completely unacceptable in true Muslim nations knew this. Those ideas are seen by followers of Islam as ‘Western’, ‘American’, and therefore ‘Christian’. They run counter to Islam. What is happening this week, including the killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, is horrific and thoroughly unconscionable. And it is not at all unexpected. It is the inevitable result of Obama's foreign policy.

    Conservative foreign policy hawks, outraged at the media’s circle-the-wagons reaction to the attacks on two embassies, are speaking out in defense of Mitt Romney. Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton tells Right Turn:”The perception of American weakness that provided the foundation for these attacks is largely because of Obama administration mistakes and lack of resolve. A repetition of 1979 in Tehran is not far fetched, especially given the weakness of Obama’s statement this morning.” He dismisses the media storyline as pure boosterism: “The press criticism of Romney’s statement is so clearly at the administration’s behest that they...

    MOSCOW — Upon learning of the violent death of the United States ambassador to Libya on Wednesday, many Russians responded with variations on “I told you so.” Russia has long argued that the West should not support popular uprisings against dictatorships in the Middle East lest Islamic fundamentalism take hold. Vladimir V. Putin, then serving as prime minister, was especially enraged last fall after an angry crowd killed his ally, Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, an event he later condemned as a “repulsive, disgusting” scene. Since then, Russia has blocked Western initiatives to force Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, from power despite a...

The president's office announced on Tuesday that it had picked 10 new governors, and said all those appointed were chosen on merit rather than party affiliation.

All times are Eastern Standard Time (EST), 6 hours earlier than Cairo time. 5:50AM - Cairo Embassy publishes a statement on its website which rejects those who "abuse" free speech.

Hedges called the president's action allowing indefinite detention, which was signed into law with little opposition from either party "unforgivable, unconstitutional and exceedingly dangerous."

The more he read about the failed company, the more irritated he became. Finally, weeks after the bankruptcy case began, Mr. Grady did something he’d never done before. He filed a claim in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. It turned out to be the biggest single claim in the case — $535 million — but it wasn’t on behalf of himself. Rather, Mr. Grady, 57, made the claim on behalf of U.S. taxpayers because he said...

    City Journal ^ | Summer 2012 | Steven Malanga
    When Barack Obama ran for president in 2008, he vowed to pour resources into American cities via the Community Development Block Grant program, a remnant of 1970s urban policy. Obama called CDBG an “important program” and praised it for providing housing and “creating jobs for low- and moderate-income people and places.” How ironic, then, that funding for CDBG has withered under President Obama. With the nation facing budget deficits as far as the eye can see, we may finally be witnessing the collapse of a decades-old program that, despite the president’s faith in it, is woefully ineffective. CDBG emerged from...

    President Barack Obama’s deputies are negotiating a $1 billion aid package with Egypt’s new Islamist government, even as Egypt’s cash-strapped military revealed that it is trying to buy $1 billion worth of German submarines that could threaten Israel’s fast-growing offshore energy projects. The German government has pointedly declined to deny the incendiary revelation about Egypt’s request to buy the two submarines. Instead, the German government offered vague support for Israel, which is facing renewed threats from Iran’s nuclear program and the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power in Egypt. “There has been no change in the German government’s position towards Israel,...

Right… peaceful. Morsidid not condemn the attacks and his government failed to provide proper protection even though a similar attack had been launched against the Israeli embassy. The Egyptian media has been stoking the flames of this conflict and Morsi recently took control of the media and appointed Muslim Brotherhood loyalists to head state-owned media outlets. That means there is a high probability that...

That news, contained in a US Census Bureau survey released Wednesday, points to difficult questions of how the US can get back on a track of job growth and rising prosperity.

    There was nothing inappropriate about Mitt Romney’s statement on the Libyan attacks this morning. If anything, his remarks were strikingly limited in scope. (The inane, narrative-obsessed, and apparently coordinated questions from the press didn’t help generate a substantive discussion.) The events of the past twenty-four hours spotlight at least three major policy decisions by the Obama administration that are deserving of scrutiny in this election season: 1) So the Obama administration disavowed the statement released by the U.S. embassy in Cairo declaring that the embassy “condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” That’s...

In these manifestos, he declared his willingness to die, of course. His goals included: “Terrorizing” Americans; Demoralizing US troops; Weakening and destruction of Israel; Unification of Muslims throughout the Middle East via “democratic” establishment of Shariah law in “governments of our countries which act...

    On October 1, 2009, the Obama administration in conjunction with the Egyptian government, introduced an anti-free speech measure to the United Nation’s Human Rights Council (HRC).  It was adopted the next day without a vote. Earlier this year, when the United States sought a seat on the HRC, it was a controversial decision.  Many who found the HRC neither credible nor useful, opposed the move.  Yet, others were more optimistic that America could change the HRC from within.  Perhaps the U.S. could spur debate stemming from its opposition to China, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, and Saudi Arabia on critical human rights...

    As the summer driving season comes to an end, motorists who were hoping gas prices would fall are instead getting hit with a big jump, especially in the Northeast. The average price of a gallon of regular gas increased 1.5 cents nationally for the second straight day, taking it to $3.86 in AAA's latest reading Wednesday. The back-to-back price moves follow what had been a lull in gas price activity after an August run-up in prices caused by Gulf Coast refinery disruptions as Hurricane Isaac approached. Prices had been expected to retreat quickly once the Gulf region's facilities came back...

    The vise on the middle class tightened last year, driving down its share of the income pie as the number of Americans in poverty leveled off and the most affluent households saw their portion grow, new census data released Wednesday showed. Income inequality increased by 1.6 percent, the Census Bureau said in its annual report on poverty, income and health insurance. This was the biggest one-year increase in almost two decades and suggested that a trend in place since the late 1970s was picking up steam. As a snapshot of a nation recovering from one of its worst recessions ever,...

    If President Obama had run in 2008 promising to cut family incomes, shove more people into poverty, create greater inequality and make people more dependent on the federal government — and that black Americans would fare worse than everyone else — would he have won that election? Well, the latest Census Bureau report shows that these are precisely the results Obama has delivered since taking office.

    A year and a half after the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, bureaucrats at the IRS and Health and Human Services issued an 18-page report outlining new regulations that will dramatically increase health care costs for small and large businesses alike. The regulations, written by an IRS attorney, arbitrarily redefine "full time employee" as someone who works 30 hours a week for a business. Traditionally, most private businesses have defined "full time employee" as someone who works 40 hours a week. With this new regulation, the federal government is now removing the right of businesses to...

    Violent protests in Libya that claimed the life of the U.S. ambassador were the result of President Obama’s decision to intervene in the Libyan revolt without a “deep appreciation” for what would follow, former CIA Director Michael Hayden tells Newsmax. Hayden, a former four-star Air Force general, was appointed CIA director by President George W. Bush in 2006 and served until 2009. In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV on Wednesday, Hayden discusses the events in Libya: “I’m reminded of Secretary of State Powell’s comments about Iraq going back almost a decade — the Pottery Barn theory that if you break...

    Following protests in Cairo and Libya Tuesday, where a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were murdered, hundreds of Muslims gathered outside the U.S. consulate in Morocco's largest city Casablanca to protest an anti-Muslim film that reportedly disrespects the prophet Mohammad, according to an AFP report. As many as 400 protesters crowded along the consulate walls and chanted anti-U.S. statements, including "Death to Obama!" At the time of this report, there had been no reports of violence and the protests were being monitored by a heavy police presence

    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated federal law when she campaigned this winter for President Obama, federal investigators announced Wednesday. Sebelius broke the law by making “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in February at a Human Rights Campaign Event in Charlotte, N.C., according to the Office of Special Counsel (OSC). She made the comments in the city that would later host the Democratic National Convention. ... The agency said Sebelius’ comments violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits public officials from campaigning in an official capacity. The agency said the Department of Health and Human Services after the...

    A 2008 Obama voter crushed under the Obama economy proclaims, “Obama says a lot of things, but his actions are often different.” Another says, “Obama’s a great con-artist.” Yet another: “I think he just wanted to get up there and show off.” An immigrant Obama 2008 voter on ObamaCare: “This is the type of thing my father was trying to get away from in communist Eastern Europe.” A woman in tears talks about her family’s situation: “This is the limit. We gotta go by the budget.” Another: “I fear for my children.” “Smoke and mirrors.” Regarding the country, and one...

    Disclaimer: before beginning, let us remember the families of the deceased, and keep them in our prayers. Most of us woke up this morning and saw or heard the news: US Embassy attacked. Oh, OK, this must be follow-up on Cairo, right? No. It turns out that there was an attack in Libya, as well. And in this attack, the mob did not just shout pro-bin Laden slogans and wave black flags. They attacked and burned the embassy to the ground; there were four Americans killed; and one of the dead was the consul / ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens (RIP)....
  • Obama Attends About 43 Percent of His Daily Intelligence Briefings

    Has an empty chair been getting 56.2 percent of the president's intelligence briefings? In light of the news that fatal attacks on U.S. diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, may well have been pre-planned by al Qaeda operatives, it would behoove the media to scrutinize just how infrequently President Obama sits in on his daily intelligence briefings. As Marc Thiessen noted in an op-ed in Sunday, September 10 edition of the Washington Post, President Obama sat in on his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) a mere 536 times out of his first 1,225 days in office. That's a mere 43.8 percent of the...
