    A 73-Year-Old Man Tried to Assassinate JFK with a Buick Full of Dynamite Weeks after John Fitzgerald Kennedy beat Richard Nixon in the 1960 United States presidential election, an elderly man nearly killed the President-Elect. Richard Pavlick, a disturbed man with anti-Catholic sentiments, packed his car and traveled from New Hampshire to Florida with one goal in mind - the death of President-Elect Kennedy. Pavlick's brute force plan would likely have succeeded, but a moment of compassion stopped Pavlick in his tracks and allowed for the era of Camelot to begin. Retired postal worker Richard Pavlick often voiced anti-Catholic sentiments...

    You and I have been assured that January the 20th, 2009 is a day like no other. It's supposed to be a historic day. The promise of change is in the air. The individual to be sworn in to be the President of the United States is being cannonized by the media. This historic day changes everything, I am assured. Tom Hanks is just thrilled. So are many other "beautiful people". HBO has devoted many hours to the Commander in Chief Elect. The red carpet is being rolled out by major media outlets, the Democrat party, the citizens of the...

    Federal prosecutors last summer rejected claims that ISNA was unfairly named an unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding case. ISNA has admitted ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. The Muslim Brotherhood is waging, in its own words, "a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” And the head of ISNA is going to offer a

    At past inaugurations, ceremonial prayers uttered on behalf of the incoming president drew about as much attention as the flags on the podium. Not this year. Barack Obama's choice of clergy is under scrutiny like no other president-elect before him, alternately outraging Americans on the left and the right as he navigates the minefield of U.S. religion. "I can't recall any prayers drawing so much attention," said Charles Haynes, senior scholar at the First Amendment Center who specializes in religion in public life. Gay advocates assailed Obama, while many conservative Christians were heartened, when he invited the Rev. Rick Warren,...

    Jeffrey Imm writes in with an AP report about the January 21 Inaugural prayer service to take place at the National Cathedral in Washington. Among those officiating will be Ingrid Mattson, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). This is an outrage and should be stopped. What's ISNA? As I have written (here, for instance), the US government has identified ISNA as a Muslim Brotherhood front organization. Actually, the Muslim Brotherhood itself has identified ISNA as a Muslim Brotherhood front organization. And the Muslim Brotherhood is all about extending Islamic law globally--even in America. According to its 1991...

    A former INS official who attended meetings with Rahm Emanuel when Emanuel was a White House aide says the hard-charging Democrat relaxed rules to naturalize even criminal immigrants and secure their votes for President Clinton ahead of the 1996 presidential election. President-elect Barack Obama, who has chosen Emanuel to run White House operations as his chief of staff, has promised to sign legislation that loosens immigration and puts even illegal aliens on a fast track to citizenship. Emanuel coordinated with Hispanic community organizers in Chicago to rubberstamp immigrants for citizenship, the INS official said in an exclusive interview with WND....

    Naming his national security team, President-elect Obama acknowledged that the attacks in Mumbai once again emphasized the threat of terrorism and the importance of these picks for “a new dawn of American leadership.” But Obama’s choice for Secretary of Homeland Security, Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, has a record of opposing border control to stop the flow of illegal immigrants (and therefore the criminals, gangs, drug smugglers and terrorists that inevitably accompany it). She also opposes any internal controls to detect and prevent illegals from unlawfully exploiting the benefits and privileges of our society. Under Napolitano, “change” for DHS may mean...

    Barack Obama had begun thinking about his Senate successor even before the presidential election, and dispatched Rahm Emanuel days after the vote to contact aides of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to begin talking up Mr. Obama's preferred candidates, associates of Mr. Emanuel said this weekend. Mr. Emanuel, a congressman from Chicago, had been approached about being Mr. Obama's White House chief of staff the week before the election, though he hadn't yet officially decided to take the post. Nonetheless, the issue of Mr. Obama's Senate replacement was sensitive enough that senior Obama aides wanted to keep the matter within the...

    Candidate Barack Obama promised "change we can believe in," but he never hinted that this change would all but circumvent Congress to impose on America the most dramatic liberal social transformation since the New Deal. While promising to lead, he did not suggest that he would create a kind of "imperial presidency" that would horrify the Founding Fathers. Based on their own direct experience with a sovereign, they were rightly concerned with any one man having too much power. This is the kind of power that Obama is now reaching for, following the same kind of "stealth strategy" that helped...

    When Barack Obama announced that he was running for president, he was clear that, if elected, he planned "not just to hold an office, but to gather with you to transform a nation." Twenty months after that statement in Springfield, Ill., we have a much clearer view of what he means by "change we can believe in." In a campaign of soaring generalizations on mostly centrist themes, Obama has described the details of the transformation with almost surgical precision. What he offers may be, in substance and in spirit, a radical departure from the principles of the America Dream that...

    President-elect Barack Obama is looking very presidential these days.

But the props are merely that. Under the Constitution, there is no such thing as the Office of the President-elect. Technically, Obama will not even become the president-elect until the Electoral College convenes after the second Wednesday in December and elects him based on the results of the Nov. 4 general election, as stated in the Constitution. So what is Obama's executive authority...

    King-elect Showbama won’t even wait until he gets his jewel-encrusted crown in January to start spinning lies. He’s now set the record for the earliest administrative yarns in history. And he doesn’t even have an administration to order around yet.

    There is a story floating around the Internet about a teacher who decided to hold a mock election for president in her 5th grade classroom. The gist of the story is that she instructed the class to pick several possible candidates for president on each side, as a kind of primary election. Then the class voted for one candidate out of each of the two groups of candidates. The names of the two finalists were Johnny and Mary. The teacher then told Johnny and Mary to give a speech about what they would do as president. Johnny got to go...

    The Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Hussein Obama triumvirate will be doing as much as possible to distract and demoralize the millions of Americans disenfranchised by last week’s Election. They’ve waited so long to come out with their show of control. Tonight there’s a developing story on Drudge that the Democrats are prepared to move forward with an investigation of the Bush Administration. A worldwide recession is deepening, the automobile industry is counting on billions, American Express is looking for a bailout, stocks are in freefall but the Dems have time to go after a lameduck president whose days in...

    Barack Obama has created a stir by proclaiming that he heads “The Office of President-Elect” — an office that does not officially exist. At his first news conference on Nov. 7, Obama stood at a podium bearing a sign that read: “Office of the President-Elect. Also, his Web site, Change.gov, bears the words “Office of the President-Elect” at the top of its home page. Writer Larry Anderson referred to the “made-up little title” on the American Thinker Web site, and declared: “I nearly busted a gut ... “Once again, [Obama] can’t wait to invest himself with the trappings of office.”

    Or not.. But who’s paying attention anyway? At some point in the near future “The Messiah” will get around to that change the obama-drones have been yearning for. Whatever that fundamental change is.. We dont know. It’s not socialism. No, it can’t be that. It’s that change we can all believe in. Personally, I never thought the day would come when it would be speculated that a Kennedy (or two) would be nominated to Obama’s cabinet. So innovative Barack. Ground breaking. Then there’s his prospective Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel: “Clinton’s going-away gift to Emanuel was a seat on the...

    Honorable Rahm Emanuel U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Financial Services Hearing on FY2004 HUD Budget March 5, 2003 I’d like to thank Chairman Oxley for holding this important hearing on the Fiscal Year 2004 HUD budget. I also appreciate that our distinguished guest, HUD Secretary Mel Martinez, has taken the time to share his views with us on this topic. Before my election to Congress, I was fortunate to serve as Vice-Chairman of the Chicago Housing Authority and as a Freddie Mac Board member. In those capacities, I saw firsthand the teamwork between public and private entities that’s required...

    Over the course of the past several election-cycle months, I waited for conservatism to come roaring out of the clubhouse as a late-game substitution, poised to invigorate the restless crowd and save the day. I knew it was lurking somewhere, waiting to hear its name over the PA system, eager, energized, ready to storm onto the field and fight. It had been – save for gallant attempts by Sarah Palin on the campaign trail – conspicuously (and maybe surprisingly) absent from most things Republican during this two-days-shy-of-forever election season – but I, like many others on the losing side, were...
  • How About Some Real Change?

    Ron Miller asks if President-elect Obama is really for change? Change like promoting polices that reward hard work. Change that allow parents more choices for their children’s education. Change in Corporate tax so American companies can compete globally. Change to protect the least able to protect themselves, the unborn. “ He was elected to bring us change -- how about walking the talk?”
