  • A cold-eyed view of allies has left Obama with few overseas friends

    Washington Post ^ | April 18, 2016 | Greg Jaffe and Griff Witte
    For someone who preaches the importance of diplomacy and outreach, even to longtime enemies, President Obama can be awfully tough on his friends. In recent months, he has offended most of the United States’ Persian Gulf allies. “All I need in the Middle East is a few smart autocrats,” he joked privately, according to a recent profile in the Atlantic magazine. Publicly, he has said he “weeps” for Saudi and Kuwaiti children. The United States’ European allies, he complains, have grown too dependent on American firepower to keep them safe. Even the United Kingdom, a U.S. “special” partner, has received...

    And what of the Great Disappointment of 2013? In the promiscuous blending of politics and culture that characterizes our age, the launch of the Obama campaign in 2007 marked the beginning of a politico-spiritual movement that promised a new beginning and a transformation of the nation. It was to be the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal [when we] restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. Faith in the leader knew no bounds. Obamaism spilled out from the college campuses and tony enclaves of Manhattan and San...
  • Why it's become clear that Obama's White House is open to the rich and closed to the poor

    Since last weekend, Mr and Mrs Regular Citizen have been denied the access people used to be granted to tour the White House, purportedly because of the clampdown on federal spending since the "sequester" that imposed cuts across the board. And their cancellation is an austerity measure that saves a pittance, while more frivolous taxpayer funding for items like the White House dog walker continues. Meanwhile, noble Americans can buy time with the president for a suggested donation of $500,000 to his new campaign group, Organising for Action.

    A university located in one of the most historical cities in America and founded as a Baptist institution has announced that it plans to begin covering the costs of the sex change operations of its students. Brown University in Providence, a city founded by Roger Williams as a refuge for those who were persecuted for their faith, states that its student health insurance plan will now cover sexual reassignment surgeries and 14 types of treatments for students desiring to switch genders. It notes that procedures normally cost up to $50,000 per person, and therefore, can be out of reach...
  • Regulators R Us: Feds Crank Up Regulations on Everything

    Get set for the Obama administrations post-election tsunami of business-killing, job-killing, economy-killing federal regulations. Its already begun. Take a look at www.regulations.gov, the administrations regulatory website. The home page informs us that in the last 90 days, the administration has posted 5,934 new regulations. Yes, our federal bureaucrats have been very diligent. The above-mentioned website informs us of their daily productivity of regulations over the past 90 days: Today (121) Last 3 Days (274) Last 7 Days (371) Last 15 Days (826) Last 30 Days (1,915) Last 90 Days (5,934) How will these regulations affect you, your family, your job,...

    Is there a limit to self-delusion? And if there is, what happens when the limit is exceeded? New York Times columnist Gail Collins began her column last week as follows, "When Democrats run into each other on elevators, they exchange glances and sigh. Or make little whimpering sounds." She went on to observe that "Democrats are going bipolar. Democrats spend all their waking hours thinking about the swing states. If Wisconsin starts looking wobbly, their day is ruined." It makes you wonder what their days are going to be like if Obama loses the actual election. Liberals are angry and...

    Obsession with income redistribution is destroying U.S. productivity President Obamas re-election prospects dim by the day. When it comes to all-important pocketbook issues, Americans quite simply are worse off now than they were when this administration moved into the White House. The Federal Reserve released its latest Survey of Consumer Finance on Tuesday, which confirmed widely held sentiment with hard data: Americans are poorer today than they were in 2007, when the Great Recession hit. The difference between now and then is massive. The median household saw almost 39 percent of its wealth evaporate, and real income (that is, the...

    London, England-In yet another outrageous piece of social engineering from our coalition government, pensioners will be encouraged to downsize to smaller properties allowing local councils to rent their homes out as council houses and manage the tenancy. Local authorities will help older people move from their homes into more suitable accommodation. Grant Schapps, the Housing Minister, who is a conservative member of parliament claims the scheme will solve a so-called housing crisis as well as creating a system that will permit access to various sources of wealth that are currently not being used to pay for care. Read that as...

    Obamaism Eats Itself By Kevin D. Williamson Posted on September 09, 2010 11:54 AM Rep. Gerry E. Connolly, a Northern Virginia Democrat facing a tough re-election challenge, has come out against letting the Bush tax cuts expire even for the top brackets. This puts him right up in the teeth of the Obama administration and Nancy Pelosi. Why would a Democrat resist ORPs (ORP = Obama-Reid-Pelosi) soak-the-rich agenda? Have a look at Connollys district: Fairfax County, part of the vast, soulless suburbs of Washington, D.C., is pretty high-income. As our Battleground blogger Robert Stiles reports today, the average household...

    Why we must protect the family, private property and America from the dangers of socialism 1. Socialism and communism are the same ideology Communism is but an extreme form of socialism. From the ideological standpoint, there is no substantial difference between the two. In fact, the communist Soviet Union called itself the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (1922-1991) and communist China, Cuba and Vietnam define themselves as socialist nations. 2. Socialism violates personal freedom Socialism seeks to eliminate “injustice” by transferring rights and responsibilities from individuals and families to the State. In the process, socialism actually creates injustice. It destroys...

CALLER: Well, I was calling you today about how the Republicans -- what I'm worried about is that Republicans won't have learned their lesson about past monetary and fiscal failures because, I mean, the Democrats have made this situation way worse with the high taxes and demonizing the wealthy, but the Republicans have had their past failures such as having low taxes, which are good, but having very high spending and...

    The big question for many Democrats tonight is how far President Obama will go in his first Oval Office address to turn the Gulf of Mexico disaster into an opportunity to end the nation's dependence on petroleum. "This is one of those 9/11 opportunities where you can rally the country to move in a different direction," said Lisa Margonelli, energy director of the center-left New America Foundation in Oakland. "It's not simply a case of political repositioning. Obama is going to have to go into the phone booth and become Superman." . . . "Obama should call for a tax...

With pinpoint accuracy, it explains the situation were currently in as well as how we got here. It was written by The National Center For Constitutional Studies. Please print it out and BEG people to read it, unbiased. This is extremely important. I truly believe there are a lot of people who voted for this administration who had good intentions. They just dont yet realize theyve been hijacked and the scope of the problem...

In Indonesia, the principal of a Muslim boarding school in Tangerang who is accused of impregnating a 15-year-old student says the DNA test will prove that a malevolent genie is the real father. In New Zealand, a German tourist, Herr Hans Kurt Kubus, has been jailed for attempting to board a plane at Christchurch with 44 live lizards in his underpants. In Britain, a research team at Kings College, London, has declared that the female G-spot does not, in fact, exist. In France a group of top gynecologists led by M.

And if you didn't see it, and if you want to know what sitting through a speech by Castro or Chavez is like find a way to watch a little bit of it and you'll get a grand idea. It was disjointed.

It's striking to me, and it's utterly predictable, you listen to the pro-Obama people in the media and they talk about, "Oh, it was great, it was the most wonderful speech." It was...

    National Review ^ | 11/25/2009 | Victor Davis Hanson
    It was rather incredible for Barack Obama to express outrage over the Supreme Court's pruning of McCain-Feingold's regulation of public financing and corporate campaign donations, since in June 2008 Obama became the first presidential candidate to forgo public financing in the general election, expecting that by doing so he could raise several millions more, much of it from the Wall Street and big-money interests that he now serially demonizes. The problem with Obama's hypocrisy is not just that, like most politicians, he does not do what he says, but that he fudges so vehemently and loudly and, to be candid,...

    US President Barack Obama is feeling the heat. His response to the current crisis threatening to sink his one-year-old presidency is telling for what it says about the future of both his domestic and foreign policies. Israel should take heed of his responses. Obama's Democratic Party, and indeed the US political establishment as a whole, received a jolt on Tuesday when Republican Scott Brown won the Massachusetts seat in the US Senate that had been held by the Democratic Kennedy dynasty since 1952. The question now on everyone's lips is whether Brown's stunning victory will cause Obama to change his...
