  • President Obama's Osawatomie Speech was a Marxist Attack on America

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Ah, you know, you people are so lucky. All you have to do is listen to this. I have to be the one to actually do it. And that's okay. This is Wednesday. Right. Okay. Pearl Harbor Day. A day that will live in infamy, absolutely right, Pearl Harbor Day. Of course yesterday was Pearl Harbor Day number two: The attack on the country by the president of the United States in that speech in Osawatomie Kansas. As I promised yesterday, we have the audio sound bites from that speech. I've studied it. It's depressing to actually...

    Obama's Income Inequality SpeechAdam Clark Estes - 2:18 PM ET **SNIP** Now, just as there was in Teddy Roosevelt’s time, there’s been a certain crowd in Washington for the last few decades who respond to this economic challenge with the same old tune. “The market will take care of everything,” they tell us. If only we cut more regulations and cut more taxes – especially for the wealthy – our economy will grow stronger. Sure, there will be winners and losers. But if the winners do really well, jobs and prosperity will eventually trickle down to everyone else. And even...

    Obama Leaves God out of Thanksgiving Speech, Riles CriticsBy JOEL SIEGEL | ABC News – 6 hours ago Critics of President Obama felt little holiday cheer after the president did not thank God in his Thanksgiving-themed weekly Internet address. They immediately took to Twitter and the Internet to voice anger and disbelief. "Holy cow! Is that one screwed up or what?" columnist Sherman Frederick of the Las Vegas Review-Journal wrote in a Thanksgiving-morning blog post. "Somebody ought to remind Obama (and his speechwriter) that when Americans sit down around a meal today and give thanks, they give thanks to God."...

We have a message for Mrs. Bachmann...." Michelle Bachmann, Presidential candidate, interrupted as Occupy Charleston took over her foreign policy speech.

    Dariano v. Morgan Hill Unified School District (N.D. Cal.), decided the day before yesterday, upholds a California high school’s decision to forbid students from wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. (See here and here for more on this case.) On Cinco de Mayo in 2009, a verbal exchange and altercation arose between a group of predominantly white and a group of Mexican students. This altercation involved an exchange of profanities and threats were made. A makeshift American flag was put on one of the trees on campus.

    The commotion over the You Tube video, seen below, of Rick Perry’s speech in New Hampshire Friday night, which has gone viral on the internet, is an illustration of the type of cultural clash commonly found during Republican Primary campaigns during the present Red State vs Blue State era that divides the country in many ways. Here you had a born again, cheerful, passionate, sincere, spirit-filled Christian from Texas and an Internet audience of cynical bigoted, well educated mush-for-brains graduates of our finest universities, I suspect who are also probably liberal in political orientation. The later does not include the...
  • Revealed: How JFK stole his 'ask not what your country can do' speech from his old headmaster

    It was quickly recorded as one of the greatest sound-bites in political history. As delivered by President John F Kennedy during his January 1961 inauguration address, the immortal phrase 'Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country' inspired millions of Americans. But a new book claims the words of wisdom were not down to Kennedy, or one of his speechwriters, but were instead cribbed from the headmaster of a school the president once attended. Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero, by U.S. talk show host and author Chris Matthews, claims that Kennedy first...

    Bloomberg: Occupy Wall Street's Tents Aren't Protected Free SpeechBy Christopher Robbins in News on October 18, 2011 12:02 PM Proving that Mayor Bloomberg enjoys dancing on the razor's edge of public opinion, Hizzoner told reporters yesterday that he doesn't believe the Occupy Wall Street tents set up in Zuccotti Park are considered protected speech. "I'm 100 percent in favor of protecting—1,000 percent in favor—of giving people rights to say things, but also we have to protect those who don't want to say anything," Bloomberg said. He continues, per his eponymous news outlet: There are places where I think it's appropriate...

    While former Governor Sarah Palin is not seeking to become the next President of the United States, the rest of the world clearly is seeking her as a major player in the future of a global economy and international relations. As we head into the 2012 primaries and general election, the GOP Establishment and others would be wise to regard her likewise.Tomorrow Palin will address an international audience at The World Knowledge Forum in Seoul, South Korea ( during a 3-day conference titled “The New Economic Crisis: Reforming Global Leadership and Asia’s Challenge.” She will be among Economists (Asian...

    President Barack Obama told a Florida TV station yesterday that the United States is facing economic difficulties because it has “gotten a little soft” during the last 20 years. [ ... ] Obamaʼs “soft” comment, and its political circumstances, echo a controversial speech by then-President Jimmy Carter. In July 1979, Carter declared that “too many of us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption.” The speech was later dubbed the “malaise speech,” even though it did not use the word.

    Barack Obama speech reopens rift with black criticsBy JOSEPH WILLIAMS | 9/29/11 5:03 AM EDT It was a speech intended to be a rousing call to arms for his 2012 re-election campaign and his jobs bill. But when President Barack Obama told a gala dinner of the Congressional Black Caucus over the weekend that it was time to “stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying” and get to work, he instead gave new ammunition to some prominent African American critics who say the nation’s first black president gets tough only when he’s talking to other black people. **SNIP** By the middle...

    CANBERRA, Australia (AP) -- A popular right-wing commentator was found guilty Wednesday of breaking Australian discrimination law by implying that fair-skinned Aborigines chose to identify as indigenous for profit and career advancement. Federal Court Justice Mordy Bromberg ruled that fair-skinned Aborigines were likely to have been "offended, insulted, humiliated or intimidated by the imputations" included in columnist Andrew Bolt's two articles published by the Herald Sun newspaper in Melbourne in 2009. Bromberg ruled out Bolt and his publisher's defense under a clause of the Racial Discrimination Act that exempts "fair comment" because the articles "contained errors of fact, distortions of...

    you. Let me begin by thanking Dr. Solomon Frager and Aron Hirtz for helping us organize this press conference today. We are indignant that certain Middle Eastern leaders have discarded the principle of direct negotiations between the sovereign nation of Israel and the Palestinian leadership, and we are equally indignant that the Obama Administration’s Middle East policy of appeasement has encouraged such an ominous act of bad faith. Simply put, we would not be here today at the precipice of such a dangerous move if the Obama Policy in the Middle East wasn’t naďve, arrogant, misguided and dangerous. It must...
