    President Barack Obama is a socialist, was raised by communists, and wasn't born in the United States, according to the former Navy SEAL who founded the group Special Operations Speaks (SOS), which aims to portray Obama as anti-military in this election season. Earlier this week, a different group of former Navy SEALS calling themselves the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund rolled out its campaign to criticize Obama for leaking national security information and taking what it believes as undue credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden. That group claims to be non-political. But the founder of SOS, a similar...

  • Presumptions Of The Left (Thomas Sowell)

    Wednesday, May 16, 2007 Radically different conclusions about a whole range of issues have been common for centuries. Many have tried to explain these differences by differences in conflicting economic interests. Others, like John Maynard Keynes, have argued that ideas -- even intellectually discredited ideas that political leaders still believe in -- trump economic interests. My own view is that differences in bedrock assumptions underlying ideas play a major role in determining how people differ in what policies, principles or ideologies they favor. If you start from a belief that the most knowledgeable person on earth does not have even...

    I use a Dr. Thomas Sowell quote on my email signature: "The most fundamental fact about the ideas of the political left is that they do not work. Therefore we should not be surprised to find the left concentrated in institutions where ideas do not have to work in order to survive" This may not have been a good choice because I am being challenged to quantify that. I have never actually thought of the left versus right. My approach in the past was a little like "I don't know art but I know what I like". Do any of...

    KAREN POMER: THE WOMAN BEHIND CINDY SHEEHAN Longtime publicist and organizer for far left groups Spokesman for anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan Spearheaded smear campaign against Arnold Schwarzenegger When distraught mother turned anti-war left standard bearer Cindy Sheehan bowed out of a September 2005 speaking engagement at the University of Maryland after a mere 10 minutes, she turned to her spokeswoman, Karen Pomer, to appease her activist fan base. "She's exhausted and she's not feeling well," Pomer dutifully explained, "but she intends to meet her obligations." The professional-sounding formulation of Pomer's rapid response was not accidental. A committed activist in her...

    November 10, 2004 -- SEN. Zell Miller (D- Ga.) laced into New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd yesterday on the "Imus in the Morning" radio show, saying, "The more Maureen Loud [sic] gets on 'Meet the Press' and writes those col umns, the redder these states get. I mean, they don't want some high brow hussy from New York City explaining to them that they're id iots and telling them that they're stupid." Miller also suggested "that red-headed woman at the New York Times" should not mock anyone's religion: "You can see horns just sprouting up through that Technicolor hair."...
  • 500 Women Stand Silently and Are Abused by Baby-Killer Marchers; DC Police Not Up to Task

    The March, in three words: "viciously, mercilessly abusive." The amount of verbal aggression and abuse hurled at me personally, by women and men, of all ages, for carrying the I REGRET MY ABORTION sign, well, I thought that from all the nastiness and name-calling I've withstood recently on ampersand and calpundit's blogs, that I was ready for it. I wasn't. Not even close. I consider myself fairly far along on the "healing" and "public-appearances" scales. We stood, all 500 of us in the Silent No More Awareness groups, in total silence as planned, for over five hours, not replying or...
