    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...

    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.

    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...

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.

Racial unrest in the underworld has been boiling over for the last few years in the Golden State.

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.

    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.

This has been especially true since a law passed in 2005 made bankruptcy more costly and more difficult. For some people, in Barack Obama’s upside down America as fast as money comes in it goes to...

Archbishop Fulton Sheen warned that, "Man is powerless to resist evil if he does not recognize it as such, and deceives himself when he becomes indifferent to evil; his whole personality immediately begins to dissolve, for the power of conscience is inseparably bound up with the denunciation of evil.

    Members of the anti-Christian, communist Left are obsessed with banishing the presence of Christian expression from all areas of the public square. They are probably the most fervent in this crusade in the government-run public school classrooms, where teachers are persecuted for displaying even a hint of Christianity. I have written before about a California teacher, Brad Johnson, who is fighting back against a tyrannical school district that ordered him to remove patriotic banners from his classroom walls—banners that simply included the name of God in their sayings. These banners had long been hanging in his classroom, but the God-hating...

Ninety percent of the states against Obama in 2008 prices below...

I mean, isn't that what the "Pro-Choice" movement is all about? Allowing women a "choice" when a mistake is made, when that mistake rains on future plans or worse yet, when a woman cannot afford to support that mistake?Strangely enough, liberals and conservatives can reach common ground. They just disagree on how to get there. Liberals are Pro-Choice, which affords one the opportunity to "fix" a mistake, while conservatives, for the most part, are Pro-Life, preferring abstinence instead. Liberals subscribe to the belief that government should provide for their contraceptive needs, while conservatives don't believe in funding protection against one's sexual exploits. At the core, however, remains the common belief that one should not breed children if one cannot afford children.

Their actions in the editing of the 911 tape were malicious, designed to start race wars and get George Zimmerman killed. There is no other answer for their lies. They managed to get a “wanted dead or alive” bounty on George Zimmerman’s head by those that believed their purposeful, hate driven, race-baiting, money grubbing lies. They cannot get away...

    Sultan Knish ^ | 14 Apr 2012 | Daniel Greenfield
    As another Passover comes to an end and the cycle of the year continues its brief spin, the echoes of "Once we were slaves and now we are free" and "Next year in Jerusalem" fade into the background noise of everyday life. We can board a plane tomorrow and fly off to Jerusalem, some of us are already there now, but will that make us free? Since Egypt we have become slaves again, lived under the rule of iron-fisted tyrants and forgotten what the very idea of freedom means. And that will likely happen again and again until the age...

    Members of Occupy Boulder are planning a protest over the University of Colorado's efforts to shut down the annual 4/20 celebration. At a general assembly Saturday on Pearl Street, members of the group said the measures being taken by CU -- including shutting down the campus to visitors and closing Norlin Quad -- were turning the university into a "police state." "We need to address the police lockdown at CU, which is a response to a peaceful protest that has gone on for 20 years," said Daniel Schwartz. "These are draconian measures that are suppressing our First Amendment rights." CU...

    Homeschool is the only option left to the rational, freedom-loving American. The left and their subversive partners have destroyed our universities and colleges. Every parent with a child in school knows how awful the leftwing indoctrination is. The war on education commenced with the student rebellion of 1964. Brick by brick, piece by piece, the great American education system was dismantled, destroyed. This did not happen organically. This was a deliberate, systematic attack on America and individualism. “Teaching as a Subversive Activity”: The Theory of Political Indoctrination PJM Last weekend I visited the U.C. Berkeley campus and on a whim...

    It’s tax time again and once again we will be forced to knuckle under to our government’s demands. If you suspect there is plenty wrong with the current system, here are some facts to support your suspicions. The U.S. tax code is now 3.8 million words long. All of Shakespeare’s works are 900,000 words long. According to the National Taxpayers Union, U.S. taxpayers spend more than 7.6 billion hours complying with federal tax requirements. In 19 37 two pages of instructions came with a Form 1040; today 189 pages are necessary. There have been 4428 changes to the tax code...

    Iranians who are able to flee their country are doing so, fearing an Israeli attack, Voice of Israel state radio reported Sunday. Iranian business people who hold dual citizenship with passports from European nations are allegedly leaving in droves. They apparently fear that Israel is preparing to attack Iran's nuclear facilities to eliminate President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's oft-repeated threat to annihilate the Jewish State. In a radio interview, a Palestinian Authority business owner with strong ties in Iran reported that many Iranians fear a “major attack” by Israel that would cause “terrible damage,” especially in Tehran. The source had returned to...

    My sources inside Iran tell me that President Obama, seeking to protect the recovering U.S. economy and bolster his chances of being re-elected in November, apparently has entered into an informal agreement with Iran that he believes will defuse the nuclear weapons crisis and keep Israel from attacking the Islamic regime. The agreement calls for the United States to acknowledge that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons, and for Iran to hand over its highly enriched uranium, which is necessary for nuclear weaponization. Iran, for its part, though engaging Obama, has no intention of abiding by the agreement and is...
