    The American political and media elite have determined, for whatever reason, that the Constitution's eligibility requirements for the presidency are not important. That is the only conclusion one can draw from the misinformation, disinformation and disinterest they have shown to the serious questions swirling around not only the unique case of Barack Obama but also to the definition of "natural born citizen" in future presidential elections. It's not unprecedented that failing republics dumb down eligibility requirements for the presidency. It's not unprecedented that failing republics ignore or obscure eligibility requirements for the presidency. It's not unprecedented that failing republics make...
  • Poll: Palin leads GOP pack

    06/08/2011 2:07:26 PM PDT · by Cincinatus' Wife · 83 replies
    Republicans want Sarah Palin to be their nominee, but they like Mitt Romney's chances better in a head-to-head match-up against Barack Obama, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll. Palin, the former Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee, has the support of 22 percent of Republicans surveyed, with Romney in second place, at 20 percent. Texas Rep. Ron Paul and Atlanta businessman Herman Cain tie for third place with 7 percent each. But of the Republican candidates, Romney runs the closest to Obama, at 38 percent to 51 percent. Obama outpolls former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty by 19 points and Palin...

  • Who is Herman Cain and why should we care?

    I admit that when five of the Republican candidates for president appeared at their lecterns in the first televised debate of the season, I said to myself, oh no. Not another black guy. We’ve already been snookered into electing the first black president who has turned out to be a total flop at managing the country. I watched the entire debate, however, and by the time it was over, I was convinced we should have waited and made this guy our first black president. We should have withheld the honor until a black candidate appeared whose job application showed him...

    So which is it: Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin will split the Tea Party vote. Palin will suck all the air out of the room and sideline Bachmann. Bachmann is a mini-me of Palin. Palin and Bachmann are popular because they are pretty (which belies their cold, conservative hearts). Bachmann will remain standing after Palin burns out.Palin and Bachmann will engage in a "cat fight."None of the above.

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney doesn’t want Paul Ryan to run for president — he likes the House Budget chairman too much. “I worship the ground the Paul Ryan walks on,” Cheney said Wednesday during a rare public appearance, the Houston Chronicle reported. “I hope he doesn’t run for president because that would ruin a good man who has a lot of work to do.” Support for Ryan’s budget plan, which includes an overhaul of Medicare, has become an early litmus test for the GOP presidential field. The plan was also a definitive issue in the special election in New...

    The hand-wringing over the Republican presidential field has not abated much since Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels announced he would not be seeking the GOP nomination, but a new name might soon be entering the fray, Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, the guitar-playing, soul-searching libertarian from Michigan. Mr. McCotter has told Politico he’s seriously considering a run and will make his decision in the next two weeks. Never heard of him? Well, here’s a McCotter primer: His jams on a Fender Telecaster emblazoned with red, white and blue , although he has been known to pick up a Stratocaster as well.

    The decision to merge ministries was made based on a "legal duty" and "structural obligation," said the Iranian president on Sunday, according to Press TV. In three separate decrees on Saturday, Ahmadinejad dismissed Welfare and Social Security Minister Sadeq Mahsouli, Minister of Industries and Mines Ali-Akbar Mehrabian and Oil Minister Masoud Mir-Kazemi from their posts, according to the 53rd article of the country's Fifth Five-Year Development Plan. http://www.myfoxchicago.com/dpps/news/ahmadinejad-could-take-over-opec-presidency-report-says-dpgonc-20110516-bb_13229470 Iran, the second largest exporter of crude in OPEC, currently holds the presidency of the cartel -- its first time in that position since the 1979 Islamic revolution.

    Washington Post ^ | April 26, 2011 | Dana Milbank
    When I covered George W. Bush’s White House, my job was made easier by the simplicity of the subject. The president had a few defining mantras — Cut taxes! Rally the base! Terrorists hate freedom! With us or against us! — and most of his decisions could be understood, even predicted, by applying one of the overarching philosophies. With President Obama, there is no such luxury. The political right is befuddled as it tries to explain him: First, Obama was a tyrant and a socialist; now he’s a weakling who refuses to lead. The political left is almost as confused,...

    Why was Obama exempt from even the most rudimentary examination of his credentials for office? And why are these same people denying that the Constitution has been violated? And why are they trying to bury the issue and denouncing anyone who speaks of it? Have they all decided that the term natural born citizen no longer applies as a prerequisite for the Presidency? If so, what are the new criteria for eligibility? The American people are waiting for the truth, not just the usual displays of elitist arrogance or feigned ignorance. There is clearly a conspiracy of silence. Is there...

    American Thinker ^ | 4/8/11 | Daryl Mahan
    In the coming weeks and months the American public will hear more and more mention of the name Herman Cain as he embarks on a most important journey.  The country he was born and raised in is in turmoil, facing crises of potentially insurmountable proportions on several levels.  Our overall economy is in shambles with the nation's debt level higher than any other nation in recorded history. Born in Tennessee in 1945, many of Herman Cain's most formative years were during a time when American society viewed and treated its members quite differently based on their outward appearance.  At the...

    Donald Trump is no coward. How else does a man conquer his world the way that Trump has without a steely resolve and fearless valor. Nowhere is Mr. Trump’s bravery in fuller display as in his recent ABC News interview on Good Morning America. Trump was asked the question that has most political Conservatives assuming the fetal position and sucking the big politically correct thumb. Was the president, Barry Hussein Soetoro birth in America? (see 3:25min video) Without batting an eye, Mr. Trump strikes at the heart of the matter by acknowledging the concerted effort by Liberals and Democrat politicos...

Now, Rubio may be making his move. From The Politico: With a landmark spending debate engulfing Washington, the Florida Republican has, virtually overnight, launched the national profile the conservative movement has been clamoring for. During his first national interview Monday, Rubio pounced on President Barack Obama — from the friendly confines of...

    ...Santorum does not separate social and economic issues. He knows that the reason we should care about expanding economic opportunity is because we respect the dignity of every human person and want to expand participation. His advocacy of smaller government is not anti-government. He calls for the proper application of the principle of subsidiarity out of respect for the primacy of the family... He rejects the idea that there is any true "right" to an abortion even if the positive law currently protects the act. Every procured abortion is the taking of innocent human life and the denial of the...

    In the Illinois legislature, state senator Barack Obama voted “present” 129 times. Today, he seems to be voting present on two major issues — Libya and the budget. National Security Adviser Tom Donilon told reporters Thursday that the United States and other nations have “taken a range of steps . . . to squeeze (Moammar) Qaddafi, isolate him, really turn him into a pariah.” But the steps the United States has taken may well have bolstered Qaddafi’s determination to crush the rebellion against his regime. On the one hand, we supported .... On the other hand, we have..... Or at...

    Continuing to thwart the United States Constitution and the people’s will, the Obama-Jarrett administration appears to be bribing the states considering eligibility legislation. Already Georgia* and New Hampshire’s eligibility bills will be postponed to 2013, clearly to protect Obama. And although there are signs of improvement in the language of the Arizona bill, what do you want to bet that will be postponed too? The way the bribe is being set up only reinforces our own research that Congress is engaged in the cover up of the usurpation. The goal is to reduce or threaten federal funding for key infrastructure...

    Call it an above-the-fray strategy. On hot issues that Democrats and Republicans have found cause to fret about — from spending reductions to state labor disputes — President Barack Obama is keeping a low profile. Democrats like Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia want him more publicly engaged in budget negotiations in Congress while others want him to denounce Republican proposed program cuts. Democrats like Rep. Keith Ellison want him to go to Wisconsin to stand in solidarity with public unions fighting to retain their bargaining rights. Some lawmakers in both parties want him to take a greater lead against...
