    Will these Obama supporters ever consider who to blame for allowing Iran to develop nuclear weapons, or will they simply assume that without their adored leader that it could have been worse? Many of President Barack Obama’s political supporters seem to think that they are invincible. No, not just invincible politically, but their own personal safety is perceived, based on their continued support of Mr. Obama, they view themselves as immune to any and all attacks no matter what possible source. The majority of Obama’s core supporters are black (from all economic strata) or white (from more wealthy citizens) or...

    In an era when star athletes are often seen as overpaid egotists, former Chicago Bear Chris Zorich had built a reputation as an unusually caring athlete. Known for his work to help the needy through his Chris Zorich Foundation every bit as much as for the six seasons he played defensive tackle for the Bears, he was an early supporter of Barack Obama, even appearing next to the future president as he launched his bid for the U.S. Senate in 2003.But his glowing character references took a hit last year when he agreed to pay back his charity nearly $350,000...

    Apparently America is so polarized by the two party system that Obama supporters are going to Twitter to make moronic, and in some cases deadly, threats. While everyone understands that politics can become heated and one’s passion can overtake them, it should not result in violence. It seems though that both sides bear some bit of responsibility in this manner.Immediately following the debate this week, Obama supporters took to Twitter venting their anger at Mitt Romney and making several tweets with regard to assassinating him. I’m sure the Secret Service is busy with all of these people as I write....

    With cloud services now available, gone are the days of those local data backups to CDs or tape – or are they? If your business has a modest amounts of data to safeguard, then cloud services provide a convenient solution for moving a copy of your data over the web to a secure storage environment. The issue is with larger amounts of data, with some cloud backup providers like Carbonite reducing the speed at which the data is transferred. It’s a policy known as bandwidth throttling, something that competitors like CrashPlan say they avoid. If you know what you’re getting,...

    Police were in the process of arresting about 100 Occupy protesters for failing to disperse Saturday night, hours after officers used tear gas on a rowdy group of demonstrators who threw rocks and flares at them and tore down fences. Police Sgt. Christopher Bolton said the arrests came after protesters marched through downtown Oakland a little before 8 p.m. Saturday, with some of them entering a YMCA building. Meanwhile, about 100 police officers surrounded City Hall while others were swept the inside of the building to see if any protesters broke in.

    A Texas gun instructor who made headlines with an ad in which he said Obama supporters and Muslims are not welcome in his class is kind of, sort of backtracking off his statements. Crockett Keller's radio ad has gone viral. "If you are a socialist liberal and/or voted for the current campaigner in chief, please do not take this class," Keller said in the ad. "You've already proved that you cannot make a knowledgeable and prudent decision as required under the law. Also, if you are a non-Christian Arab or Muslim, I will not teach you this class." The Texas...

    Rewriting the U.S. Constitution. Imposing a "Robin Hood tax" on most financial transactions worldwide with the goal of taking from the "rich" to give to the "poor." Giving the Federal Reserve permission to regulate interest rates on savings accounts.

According to White House visitor logs, between March 12, 2009, and April 14, 2011, Solyndra officials and investors made no fewer than 20 trips to the West Wing. In the week before the administration awarded Solyndra with the first-ever alternative energy loan guarantee on March 20, four separate visits were logged.George Kaiser, who has in the past been labeled a major Solyndra investor...
  • Solyndra - The Obama connection

    Solyndra - The Obama connection I wrote about the solar panel manufacturer Solyndra last week; "Government Investment Disaster in the Works" I highlighted all of the negatives that the company was facing. It was pretty clear to me that that company was facing trouble. But I had no idea that they would file Chapter 11 the very next day. (Sometimes you just get lucky) I also made note of some scuttlebutt that George Kaiser (Oklahoma oil billionaire) was involved with Solyndra. I have been looking for a confirmation of this. Kaiser is an important link in this story. He is...

    By Neal Boortz Well now, the one-time Marxist revolutionary turned community organizer and former loyal parishioner to the charismatic Jeremiah Wright has now announced that he will seek a second term as president. What a complete surprise that was! The sad and pathetic part of this story is that he may well pull this off .. and if he does the damage that he can do to our republic in his last four years could be fatal. No … I'm serious here. No hyperbole. This dangerous man meant it when he said that he was going to "fundamentally transform" the...

    VINALHAVEN, Maine — Like nearly all of the residents on this island in Penobscot Bay, Art Lindgren and his wife, Cheryl, celebrated the arrival of three giant wind turbines late last year. That was before they were turned on. “In the first 10 minutes, our jaws dropped to the ground,” Mr. Lindgren said. “Nobody in the area could believe it. They were so loud.” Lawsuits and complaints about turbine noise, vibrations and subsequent lost property value have cropped up in Illinois, Texas, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Massachusetts, among other states. In one case in DeKalb County, Ill., at least 38 families...

    PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Even as President Obama arrives in Pittsburgh for the Group of 20 summit, protesters and police are clashing on the streets after police tried to break up a march opposing the meeting.

Some protesters also are using pallets and corrugated steel to block a road. Officers fired gas at the protesters. Some of those exposed to the gas were coughing, complaining of eyes watering and stinging. The march began with several hundred...

Senior officers said British-born Muslims from the West Midlands and Yorkshire have travelled to Helmand province and other parts of southern Afghanistan. Interception of Taliban communications has revealed the sound of jihadists speaking with West Midlands accents. One senior military source said: “It is the Punjabi and Kashmiri Urdu speakers who fall back into English in, for example, Brummie accents. “You get the impression they have been told not to...
