  • Amnesty: the audaciousness of Obama

    How long has Congress been mulling over some sort of amnesty plan for illegal immigrants? A long time, certainly under several presidents, whether it’s called “amnesty” or whether euphemisms are used to substitute for the word. But there’s a reason Congress hasn’t done much about it in a long time, and that’s because the American people don’t want it and Congress is at least somewhat responsive to the people, despite the fact that many politicians and those who give them money are more interested in amnesty than the general public is. Presidents have understand that, too, and have also understood...

    Doctors treating Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for a blood clot say the clot formed in her head but they stress that they are confident she will make a full recovery. In an update Monday on Clinton’s condition, her doctors say the blood clot did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage. The clot is located in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear.

    Mitt Romney’s son says that his defeated dad never actually wanted the top job and he was reluctantly convinced to run for president. “He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to… run,” the eldest Romney son Tagg said in an interview with the Boston Globe. “If he could have found someone else to take his place… he would have been ecstatic to step aside. He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them, but he has deep faith in God and he...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton paid tribute Thursday to slain U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, calling him a "fallen hero" who understood that diplomacy requires taking risks. About two months after Stevens and three other Americans were killed in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, Clinton said the State Department and Pentagon are reviewing security at high-threat diplomatic posts to determine what improvements should be made.

The Obama administration, according to the official, was due to announce that the U.S. would make a large donation of food aid to North Korea, and in turn North Korea was to announce the suspension of its controversial uranium enrichment program.

    A last-ditch drive ends in disappointment for Penn State, which loses to Nebraska, 17-14. Not having any timeouts crippled the offense, which completed two passes short of a first down, including one with seconds left, but couldn't stop the clock. This is a different Saturday in State College. Immediately after McGloin's final pass fell incomplete, the Penn State crowd cheered the team's effort: the cheering grew to a roar as the two teams again met a midfield, such as they did right before the game. Again, as occurred several times during the game, there were chants of "We love JoePa."...

    Romney says he's 'also unemployed' By Michael O'Brien - 06/16/11 01:04 PM ET Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) risked looking as though he had a tin ear when telling out-of-work Floridians Thursday that he's also unemployed. Romney, a Republican presidential candidate and a millionaire many times over, sought to empathize with voters in Tampa facing economic hardship. "I'm also unemployed," he said, as reported by the New York Times. And Democrats pounced, calling Romney out-of-touch for his remarks. “Mitt Romney’s comments today at an event with unemployed Floridians that he’s ‘also unemployed’ is inappropriate and insensitive to the millions...

And while these efforts have been carried out by seeming equal numbers of Democrat officeholders and media talking heads like the always embarrassing Keith Olbermann, three people who have predominated in these efforts are Michael Moore, Jane Fonda, and Kathy Griffin: a trio I’ve personally dubbed “The Shameless Trifecta.”

    As Barack Obama looks through papers, his eight-year-old daughter, Sasha, spies on him from behind a sofa. The photograph, released by the White House, was taken by Peter Souza, whose brief is to document the Obama presidency. Mr Obama has said that one of the greatest benefits of working in the White House is having his family living in the same building. Despite its spontaneous feel, the image evokes obvious – and possibly intentional - comparisons with famous pictures of a three-year-old John F Kennedy Jr playing under the same desk as his father sat working at it. The photographs...

The U.S. had been prodding European leaders to respond aggressively to a crisis in debt-ridden Greece that threatened to spread to other financially weak countries such as Spain and Portugal.

We were the only people in the airport, except for a few local national employees wandering around as we lined up just inside to...

Funny, Cindy Sheehan didn't make his list. No matter, he doesn't have to do without her absurd antics. She's bringing her roadshow to PReston Hollow this weekend to protest his actions as president. She crossed the line between principled crusader and crackpot long ago, so I shouldn't be surprised at this, and I wasn't the biggest fan of Bush's as his presidency wore on, but this makes me truly...

Clinton had planned to discuss his climate change initiative during his appearance on "Fox News Sunday," but he turned combative after host Chris Wallace asked why he hadn't "put bin Laden and al-Qaeda out of business." Clinton shot back that "all the conservative Republicans" who now criticize him for inattention to bin Laden used to criticize him for over-attention to bin...

    The story of this nation has been collectively written by the immigrant pen. Titled “The American Dream,” this wildly successful and popular tale is about to gain a new author. Yet instead of simply writing the next verse, this wave of immigrant authors seems intent on starting a new book. There is no longer satisfaction with building for the future; an entitlement culture has grown. This contemporary tale is to be authored by illegal immigrants, but the pen, paper, and publishing are paid for by the American taxpayer. Not offended yet? Soon. When reading this piece, remember that the term...

    With issues such as the Iraq war and terrorism ranking as high priorities for most voters, Democratic officials have spent much of the past two weeks trying to persuade the press and the public that they are better-equipped to deal with national security and military veterans than the Bush administration and the Republican Party. The newest effort to burnish the party’s credentials on these issues came Wednesday, when the Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced the establishment of a veterans council — designed to foster a closer political relationship between the Democratic Party, military veterans and their families. The effort, known...

    With Rush Limbaugh inevitably pulling for his beloved Steelers, it’s once again left to me to make the most accurate, non-biased Environmentalist Wacko pick possible. In this year’s Super Bowl, there’s no doubt who the environmentalist wacko element will be cheering on to victory. So here’s the breakdown... Super Bowl LV: Seattle Seahawks vs. Pittsburgh SteelersThis Sunday marks the fortieth Super Bowl in NFL history, and it’s a classic match-up between two diametrically opposed forces. One sideline will host the beloved Seahawks – noble and elegant flying creatures of the animal kingdom (and a bird granted special ‘victim status’ due...

    In the Fox News Channel Senator George Allen blasted the Democrats as shameless, bereft of ideas and rejected Harry Reid's apology for trying to taint 33 GOP Senators in the Abramoff Scandal. Senator Allen, a possible contender for the White House in 2008 ripped the "playbook" of the Democrats in the upcoming elections as scurrilous and beneath contempt since they have no new ideas to offer the American people. At the same time he gave little credibility to Osama Bin Laden's latest audiotape threatenig America as "old news".

    BANGOR, Maine --Former President Bill Clinton surprised U.S. troops arriving from Iraq when a refueling stop at the Bangor International Airport coincided with the arrival of two chartered flights carrying soldiers. Clinton was returning Monday night from Paris where he had met with French President Jacques Chirac to discuss plans for his charitable organization, the Clinton Foundation. (snip) "Thank you for your service," Clinton said as he shook hands and hugged many of the soldiers as they passed by. He autographed hats, cards, paper and other items. The soldiers, about 600 of them, were returning to bases in Oklahoma, Texas...

    I just finished reading another amazing novel by Dean Koontz, "Cold Fire". The afterword ... is hilarious: "Then, as is often the case when life is good, someone said, 'Hey, let's make a movie!' and life got strange, dark, and scary. "By this I do not mean to imply - although I can't stop you from inferring - that a lot of movie-industry executives are as brainless, voracious, and destructive as the flesh-eating bacteria ... I've met smart, fair, creative executives over the years...although I've noticed their kind either eventually get fired," (NOTE TO SELF: KELLY GOODE!!!) ... He goes...
  • VANITY - Rebuild New Orleans as the City of Tomorrow!

    Heck, if the government really is going to spend $200 billion to rebuild New Orleans, they might as well rebuild it as the city of tomorrrow complete with kelp farms, electricity generated by tides, public transportation light as a cloud and efficient and almost noiseless, parks that are nice and safe and clean. It could be a proof-of-concept city for all those innovations you see in the middle of "Popular Science" that are always "just around the corner." I draw the line at dog-walking robots and the bubble dome (for now), but you get my drift, I suppose. Well, I...
  • Mississippi Shortchanged? Bush Sending All to NO (Olberman)

    09/05/2005 5:11:18 PM PDT · by faithincowboys · 16 replies · 447+ views
    The odious Keith Olberman is on PMSnbc floating the idea that Bush is neglecting Mississippi by directing so many resources to New Orleans, which is empty. I detect this is the latest media shift. Now that Bush has NO largely in hand and it has been an amazing success, they are going to shift focus to Mississippi and say Bush screwed over Mississippi and the relief effort is being bungled there and all. Moral of the story-- the liberal media are evil M effers and Republicans never get a fair break in the MSM.
  • 'PEACE MOM'S' MARRIAGE METAPHOR FOR DEMS -- Shameless Politicization of Son's Death!

    Yet in the wreckage of Pat and Cindy Sheehan's marriage there is surely a lesson for the Democratic Party. As Cindy says, they're both Democrats, but she's "more liberal" and "more radicalized." There are a lot of less liberal and less radicalized Dems out there: They're soft-left-ish on health care and the environment and education and so forth; many have doubts about the war, but they love their country, they have family in the military, and they don't believe in dishonoring American soldiers to make a political point. The problem for the Democratic Party is that the Cindys are now...
