    Because our servile journalists spend their days awash in ecstasy, thinking endlessly of the tingle that runs up their leg when they see Barack Obama, they don't seem to be able to find the time to ask him any tough questions. That leaves the rest of us out in the cold, dreaming of queries we'd like to see asked of the President of the United States -- if our press would turn in its Obama Fan Club memberships and start acting like members of the media again. With that in mind, just as I did during the 2008 campaign, I've...

    CNSNews.com ^ | Sept. 11, 2009 | House Republican Conference
    (CNSNews.com) – House Republicans on Thursday issued ten “common-sense” questions arising from President Barack Obama’s Wednesday-night speech plugging health care reform. The questions – and the words that prompted them – appear here verbatim: President Barack Obama: “Our collective failure to meet this challenge – year after year, decade after decade – has led us to the breaking point.” Common Sense Question: If we are at the “breaking point,” then why doesn’t your government-run insurance plan start until 2013? President Barack Obama: “There are now 30 million American citizens who cannot get coverage.” Common Sense Question: On August 20, you...
  • Pandemic' bill raises ire, constitutional questions

    Could the swine flu usher in martial law? An emergency physician from Fort Hood, Texas, weighs in on that possibility. Lawmakers in Massachusetts are considering Senate Bill 2028, a pandemic response bill that will give public health officials and law enforcement complete control over citizens of the Commonwealth. Under the bill, should a pandemic be declared, the aforementioned officials will have authority to quarantine and forcibly immunize citizens. Any citizens resisting will face stiff fines and up to 30 days in prison. The bill also gives authorities the right to seize private property and supplies and redistribute them as they...

    Fox News Channel | 9/1/09
    As the Obama Creep Show continues, the president just gave a very strange address on TV. He stood there, warning of the H1N1 swine flu pandemic, and asked people to cough into their sleeves. He warned that older people may become more ill than younger people. He said that people should be aware of their health. He urged people to get flu vaccine injections. He implied that we are on the brink of a disaster on the scale of the 1918 flu which killed 20,000,000 people. Then, after making everyone's hair stand up, he turned and walked away. With all...

    A top official of the Corporation for National and Community Service, the government agency that oversees AmeriCorps, has refused to answer questions from congressional investigators about the White House's role in events surrounding the abrupt firing of inspector general Gerald Walpin. Frank Trinity, general counsel for the Corporation, met with a bipartisan group of congressional investigators on Monday. When the investigators asked Trinity for details of the role the White House played in the firing, Trinity refused to answer, according to two aides with knowledge of the situation.

    WASHINGTON – Repairs for rural bridges, an under-highway safe crossing for turtles and efforts to protect the sage grouse population are among 100 projects a Republican senator pointed to Monday as questionable federal stimulus spending. The list by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., includes projects others would identify as ideal for creating jobs and benefiting generations of Americans: skateboard parks, streetscapes, upgrades of park facilities, bike trails and parking garages. ... Coburn also criticized a $3.4 million Florida Department of Transportation project for an "eco-passage" — an underground wildlife road crossing for turtles and other wildlife in Lake Jackson, Fla., along...

    The American Spectator ^ | 10Jun09 | Lisa Fabrizio
    Is it all over in America? This is a question that has been asked, I suppose, since its founding. It is reported that when Ben Franklin was asked after the Constitutional Convention in 1787, if America was a republic or a monarchy he replied, "A republic...If you can keep it." So, even at the birth of our nation, there were doubts as to the feasibility of a government whose powers were reserved to "We, the People." Never had a great nation survived without a group or groups of individuals seizing the reins and using governmental power to strip the rights...

    RICHMOND, Va. – In a governor's race that's all about jobs, Terry McAuliffe is facing questions about huge profits he made from a company that collapsed two years later, leaving 10,000 people unemployed. ... In 1997, McAuliffe sank $100,000 into the Beverly Hills, Calif.-based startup's bold plan to link North America and Europe with a trans-Atlantic fiber optic cable, a super-fast conduit for voice, video and digital data. "When I invested in Global Crossing, understand that it was a very risky deal," ... His return was $8.1 million, ...

    Rep. Jane Harman is denying that she tried to interfere with a Justice Department prosecution of alleged spying for Israel and is questioning whether a federal agency was improperly spying on a member of Congress. Harman (D-Calif.) responded angrily Monday to a story in CQ Politics reporting that the National Security Agency monitored a conversation in which she told a suspected Israeli agent that she would press prosecutors to reduce charges against two former officials of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee. "If there is anything about this story that should arouse concern, it is that the Bush administration may...

    President Barack Obama holds his second primetime news conference at 8 p.m. Tuesday and, much like the first, the economy will be center stage. But instead of selling his stimulus package to a country that welcomed the jolt, the president now has to explain why, once again, taxpayers must foot the bill to prop up Wall Street. Obama is seeking to cool the white-hot anger, both in Congress and in the public, over the AIG bonuses by rolling out a series of new regulations to rein in Wall Street’s excesses. But should his crackdown go too far, he risks turning...

The alert came from the office of Sen. Arlen Specter, the alleged Republican whose office I stormed on Monday. Specter wanted to talk with me, mano y mano. As I write this, I am still waiting for the Senator’s call. I’m not sure what he wanted to tell me. Lobbying from nonsensical moderates doesn’t work on me. Maybe he wanted to tell me that I shouldn’t barge into his offices...
