  • Yahoo is censoring TheObamaFile.com

    The Obama File ^ | 4/19/2012 | Beckwith
    Yup! Big, rich Yahoo is indeed censoring The Obama File, and it appears, because of the quickness of the delete, that it is being done under software control (automatically). Now, the question is: Did Yahoo choose to censor The Obama File on its own, or are they responding to orders from Team Obama?

    American Thinker ^ | April 19, 2012 | Ed Lasky
    However, there may be a more fundamental reason we are so consistently lied to by Barack Obama and his allies: they just do not respect most Americans and have very little regard for our intelligence. Where, one may ask, is the proof of this claim? Barack Obama and his closest advisers have in fact told us they don't think too highly of most Americans. The tip off should have been Barack Obama's "gaffe" (Michael Kinsley's definition of a gaffe made by a politician is when he tells us how he truly thinks by accident) back in 2008 when he derisively...

    THE FREEDOM POST ^ | April 18, 2012
    Video and text of interview with FOX Business' Neil Cavuto. CAVUTO: He says, "I'm trying to level the playing field." LEACH: What is "level the playing field"? It's a colloquial, warm, fuzzy expression that means "I am a socialist".
  • Bob Beckel's F-Bomb and those angry liberals

    Bayoubuzz.com ^ | April 18, 2012 | Jeff Crouere
    Such a mindset was on display last night on the Fox News television show “Hannity.” A liberal guest, Bob Beckel, dropped the “F bomb.” He was caught off guard when the show returned from a commercial break. He had been in a heated argument with two conservative guests who joined him on the program. Beckel’s outburst is typical of the angry liberals we see so often in the media... The Beckel outburst is another chance for Americans to gain an insight into the mind of a hardcore liberal. As we can plainly see, it is not a pretty sight.
  • Obama’s ‘Neutral’ Stance on the Falklands Is of a Piece With His Dictator-Coddling Foreign Policy

    PJ Tatler ^ | Posted at 10:09 am on April 17th, 2012 | Mike McNally
    Yesterday Bryan Preston covered Barack Obama’s remarks on the Falkland Islands at the Summit of the Americas in Colombia. When asked about Argentina’s claim to the British-ruled islands, Obama said the U.S. would continue to observe a “neutral” stance, adding that “this is not something that we typically intervene in.” Taking a leaf out of the Sean Penn guide to diplomacy, he also attempted to refer to the Islands by their Argentinian name, Las Malvinas. Obama’s response attracted little interest here in Britain, and while the Smartest President Ever mistakenly called the islands the Maldives, I didn’t find Obama’s intention...
  • The "War on Drugs" has failed - time to consider legalisation?

    The Sun (UK) ^ | NIGEL INKSTER, Ex-Assistant Chief of MI6
    A FORMER British MI6 chief has joined growing calls to end the “war on drugs” and consider legalising them. The battle has left tens of thousands dead in Latin America but failed to reduce drug-use around the world. Here Nigel Inkster, of the International Institute For Strategic Studies, argues that we need to rethink our approach to narcotics.

    The Market Oracle ^ | April 18, 2012 | BATR
    The lack of a government policy that promotes domestic energy independence in the United States is a tragic consequence of playing politics for decades. The current rage is the natural gas boom that offers the alternative of producing a plentiful and inexpensive source of fuel. Economic prosperity rests upon cheap and reliable power and natural gas offers the best option.

    If Americans are looking for anything in the dark clouds of political dust and powdered ash that choke our air and leave us feeling naked against the elements, it is but a simple moment of sincerity. It sounds like an easily attainable thing, and yet, we continue to gasp and clamor. The visible surface of our nation is so devoid of honest connection with our social voice that we have turned to a cynical form of loneliness. We have embraced a life without clarity, and been made wretchedly bitter, desperate for even the faintest taste of truth.

    La Salette Journey ^ | April 18, 2012 | Paul Melanson
    Richard Wagner, a confused soul who resides in Seattle, Washington, has a brief biography at the website for the "Center for Progressive Christianity" which may be found here. This lost soul says that he works to "heal" professionals including religious leaders and that he has facilitated "support groups for gay clergy of numerous denominations for many years." Mr. Wagner offers his advice at a website titled drdicksexadvice.com. Why am I even writing about him? Because this lost soul who suffers from the psychopathology of homosexuality describes himself as a "gay priest." His website, which may be found here, and his...

    Apparently gang rivalries in Southern California are breaking down along racial lines, and the Mexican Mafia has ordered Hispanic street gangs to "'focus on getting the blacks out' of their territories, according to an Escondido police gang specialist" as reported by Eva Knott for the San Diego Reader. Racial unrest in the underworld has been boiling over for the last few years in the Golden State. Last year the feds indicted 51 suspected members of Azusa 13 -- a Latino street gang affiliated with the Mexican Mafia -- for their alleged roles in a terror campaign against blacks in Azusa,...

    The College Conservative ^ | April 18, 2012 | Mark Mayberry
    In 2010, the state of Florida successfully passed legislation requiring welfare recipients to submit to a drug test in order to continue receiving governmental assistance. Since then, the state has decreased the number of applicants by 48 percent and saved just under two million dollars. It is only a matter of time before more states catch onto this age of new fiscal restraints. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has modeled this Florida law in his state. In a press release from his office on Monday, Governor Deal praised Florida for their success and defended the law in his state saying, “This...

    So ObamaCare has come to this. Gaeton Lucibello has rescinded an earlier plea agreement with federal prosecutors after telling the judge he only entered into it for the purpose of getting a hip replacement while serving his 63-month prison sentence under the deal as reported by George Anastasia for philly.com. The 59-year-old defendant was among the thirteen charged last year for his suspected involvement in a gambling racket allegedly headed by reputed Philly mob boss Joe Ligambi. The case is scheduled for a September trial.

    Sultan Knish ^ | April 17, 2012 | Daniel Greenfield
    Many people have noted that Obama's rhetoric often feels off, but fewer have looked into why that is so. A great part of Obama's success has been his ability to invoke values detached from belief systems. To break away symbols and ideals from religious and national value systems, and mix and match them into his own soundbites. Like the famous Hope poster, that mixed patriotic color schemes with socialist realism, or Obama's own logo, which mixed corporate branding with national politics-- Obama's "brand" was built out of a barely coherent mishmash of clashing elements. The only thing they all have...

    The Shot heard around the World! This phrase has come to represent the beginning of many historical events - like the American Revolution (1775 - 1783). And its genesis can be traced to Ralph Waldo Emerson's Concord Hymn - "Here once the embattled farmers stood, And fired the shot heard round the world ..." Emerson words immortalized the American Minutemen resistance to the British forces back in 1775, as the British were on a mission to seize and destroy the American militia ammunition and weapons. Emerson's poem marks the Battle of Lexington and Concord (April 19, 1775), the start of...

    By Congress is refusing to act on citizen demands for an investigation of Barack Obama’s Natural Born Citizenship status because of fears of race riots by Blacks across America. This appears to be the consensus arrived at by many of our country’s on line bloggers. “Obama’s failure to come up with a real, long form Birth Certificate in a timely manner and his expenditure of a vast amount of money in legal fees in my opinion is a 100% indication something is rotten in Denmark. I don’t know what that something is, but something is fishy,” states one commenter. Another...

    We’ve decided on a new feature at Conservative Outcry – a daily (meaning as often as we get to it) response to a randomly chosen Wonkette article.Although we pay very little attention to Wonkette, many liberals seem to enjoy their musings.It is a known fact, however, that liberals are frequently incapable of discerning fact from fiction; especially, when fiction is presented in the form of a “left-leaning American online magazine of topical satire and political gossip”. While there is nothing wrong with satire, satire should always be based in fact. There is nothing funny about…hmmm…how do liberals say is...oh yes, non-truths (as opposed...
