    Obama’s ACORN operative in the White House Patrick Gaspard, a former Working Families Party associate, is helping shape domestic policy– Obama political advisor Patrick Gaspard holds the same White House position his Bush-era predecessor, Karl Rove, did. But before he was the White House political czar he worked in several far left organizations as activist and agitator. reported: One of the more disturbing aspects of the Obama-ACORN connection is that the White House political affairs director is one Patrick Gaspard. Gaspard doesn’t register on the media radar screen in the way that his immediate Bush-era predecessor, Karl Rove, did....

    Full title: Belafonte Attacks Cain: 'A Bad Apple' 'So Denied Intelligence' 'Don’t think prayers were created for him' In a "Joy Behar Show" segment scheduled to be aired on HLN Friday, singer Harry Belafonte attacked Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain in potentially the most disgraceful manner of any media member to date. While his host and others on the set laughed, Belafonte called Cain "a bad apple" that was "so denied intelligence...I don’t think prayers were created for him" (video follows with transcript and commentary): JOY BEHAR, HOST: Now, let me interrupt you for a second, because now you have...

    Varying posts of mine have elicited comments from Occupy Wall Street spokespeople. I thought that I might respond to one of them in a blogpost. Remember, I am already pitching a perfect game against them. Now that none other than Obama babysitter and terrorist Bill Ayers has decided to break for Occupy Wall Street, I think I am on even firmer ground. I am assuming the 1%’ers the OWS street crowd wants to send to re-education camps according to Roseanne Barr is the people that make more than $200k per year. Guess what.

    Thirteen U.S. senators who oppose the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) participated in a video for the pro-homosexual “It Gets Better” project, in which they encourage lesbian and gay youth to persevere and be optimistic about the future. In discussing the release of the video on Wednesday, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) said, “DOMA, folks, is on the wrong side of history.” The participation of the 13 senators, all Democrats, in the “It Gets Better” video project was spearheaded by Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), who won Joe Biden’s seat after the latter became vice president.

    Our Reactionary PresidentHe seeks to restore the good old days, which never actually existed. Barack Obama is the most reactionary president in the recent history of the United States. Obama seems intent on turning back the clock to the good old days of the 1960s and 1970s, when rigid political orthodoxy, not an open mind, guided government. Take the economy. The 1980s collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union proved that state control of the means of production guaranteed poverty. The currently insolvent and fragmenting European Union and the stagnant economics of the exploding Middle East...

    Extreme left wing group Peace Now accused Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of racist motivation for standing up to U.S. President Barack Obama in a White House press briefing last week. In an op-ed piece for Ma’ariv, Peace Now Director-General Yariv Oppenheimer called Netanyahu’s behavior “unprecedented.” It was no coincidence, he explained, that the Prime Minister’s “Israeli arrogance broke records,” and that “sentences that are supposed to be said behind closed doors and in internal discussions were exhibited for all to see in a condescending and ugly manner.” Netanyahu’s “supercilious and patronizing attitude” in "scolding" Obama stems from the fact that...

    Yes, the radical Left in Spain is howling over the Socialist government's spending cuts. But Spain has proportional representation and numerous well-organized leftist alternatives, so why would angry leftists switch to a conservative party, instead of parties such as the communist-dominated United Left? Instead, the parties which gained were the more conservative "People's party", and various regional parties, few of which were leftist, since the leftists stand for centralization. (There have been left-wing regional parties, but these have largely joined the United Left coalition.) Unemployment is at 21 percent nationally, but the voters aren't angry at unemployment benefits cuts because,...

    The death of Osama bin Laden has driven a stake into the heart of the Left, causing progressives to bleed and moan as their unholy alliance with radical Islam absorbs the devastating May 2 blow. The radical Islamic half of the romance is in agony as it sheds bitter tears for the mass murderer. Indeed, Hamas, Hezbollah, the armed wing of Fatah, and tens of thousands of radical Muslims around the world have prominently displayed their sorrow and anger for the world to see. The alliance’s leftist half is, meanwhile, also deeply grieving. The guru of the leftist political faith,...

    White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett has “exciting announcements” about small-business investments, but the Obama administration doesn’t want anyone reporting on it. The Energy Department sent out advisory of a conference call Thursday afternoon with Jarrett and other officials “for an update on our inter-agency collaboration on small business procurement and exciting announcements on upcoming events around the country.” DOE encourages recipients to “circulate this call information widely” to businesses in swing states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida and Colorado.

Is Barack Obama on a glide path to the legacy as the president who "lost America"?

    It took less than 24 hours for the political Left to seize upon the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six people on Saturday to blame the political Right for the shooting. Perhaps the most egregious example came from Paul Krugman of the New York Times, who wrote "We don't have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was." (The newspaper that published plagiarized and fabricated accounts of the "D.C. sniper" by affirmative-action hire Jayson Blair in 2003 is still publishing unsubstantiated suppositions without "proof," eh?)

He’s not a “liberal,” or a “Democrat,” or a “progressive,” or even a “socialist.” Let’s call it what it is, shall we? It’s time to use the “C” word. His policies are communist, pure and simple. Even...

    Van Jones, the Oakland, Calif.-based radical activist and author who was forced to resign his post as the Obama administration's "green jobs czar" in September after it was revealed that he had signed a "truther" petition in 2004 calling for an investigation of President George W. Bush's supposed collusion in the massacres of Sept. 11, 2001, now has a new post: on the faculty of Princeton University. Jones will be a visiting fellow at Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public International Affairs for the 2010-2011 academic year, where he will be teaching a graduate seminar on environmental politics---quite a coup...

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Anti-Olympic protests turned violent here Saturday, as demonstrators smashed windows, overturned newspaper boxes and spray-painted buildings and cars downtown. Vancouver police said that about 100 masked protesters marched through the city Saturday morning, kicking cars, ripping down signs and vandalizing buildings. The masked protestors, who the police say were intermingled with a few hundred other "legitimate" demonstrators, smashed windows of the Hudson Bay Company's flagship downtown store. Down the street, they tossed a newspaper box through the window of a Toronto-Dominion Bank. Vancouver police said they called on the help of Olympic security forces to stop...

    Dr. John C. Drew, a grant writing consultant in Laguna Niguel, Calif., tells Newsmax he met Obama in 1980 when Obama was a sophomore at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Drew had just graduated from Occidental and was attending graduate school at Cornell University. Drew’s then girlfriend, Caroline Boss—now Grauman-Boss—knew Obama because she shared classes with him at Occidental. During Christmas break, Drew says he was at Grauman-Boss’ home in Palo Alto when Obama came over with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, his roommate from Pakistan. “He was arguing a straightforward Marxist-Leninist class-struggle point of view, which anticipated that there would be...

    Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy said he was taught by communists when he attended Stony Brook University. But, unlike the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy, Levy said he is not about to name names. Levy, a Democrat, made the statement before state Conservatives in Albany last week. He said he's "very proud" of his Stony Brook experience and that the school has changed a lot since he attended 30 years ago. Then, Levy said, "A number of professors railed against America on a consistent basis." He said one wore a red hat and fatigues, and another spoke of how Cuba had...

    Tomorrow the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on five of President Obama's controversial court-and-justice nominees. Among them is federal district court nominee Edward Chen of Northern California, whose radical agenda has not been fully exposed and requires further public hearings rather than a vote. If the Senate reveals Mr. Chen's long record of ill-advised statements and legal positions so that the general public can listen, plenty of Democratic senators will have to reconsider voting for such an extreme nominee. As a federal magistrate in San Francisco, Mr. Chen objected to the singing of "America the Beautiful" at a...

    You knew it would come to this when Tim Tebow and his mother Pam entered the nasty, divisive world of partisan politics. Now they are being “Swiftboated” by pro-choice attorney and activist Gloria Allred, who has all but painted Pam Tebow as a liar for claiming doctors in the Philippines recommend she undergo an abortion when she was pregnant with Tim. Allred uses the argument that abortions were illegal at the time in the Philippines and therefore the Tebow’s pro-life Super Bowl commercial on CBS is “misleading advertising.”

    Howard Zinn, an author, teacher and political activist whose leftist "A People's History of the United States" became a million-selling alternative to mainstream texts and a favorite of such celebrities as Bruce Springsteen and Ben Affleck, died Wednesday. He was 87. Zinn died of a heart attack in Santa Monica, Calif., daughter Myla Kabat-Zinn said. The historian was a resident of Auburndale, Mass. (snip) At a time when few politicians dared even call themselves liberal, "A People's History" told an openly left-wing story. Zinn charged Christopher Columbus and other explorers with genocide, picked apart presidents from Andrew Jackson to Franklin...

    Howard Zinn, the Boston University historian and political activist who was an early opponent of US involvement in Vietnam and a leading faculty critic of BU president John Silber, died of a heart attack today in Santa Monica, Calif, where he was traveling, his family said. He was 87. "His writings have changed the consciousness of a generation, and helped open new paths to understanding and its crucial meaning for our lives," Noam Chomsky, the left-wing activist and MIT professor, once wrote of Dr. Zinn. "When action has been called for, one could always be confident that he would be...
