    I am very concerned about the direction my nation is going. I believe there is immense effort by those who are running the Washington Establishment to replace United States citizens with foreign nationals, to displace the United States citizenry, thereby giving our jobs and our votes to those not assimilating into America, and who know very little about our precious American heritage. With this in mind, and as a proud member of We The People, here are my demands for the redress of my grievances as guaranteed by the first amendment to the Constitution. • We The People demand legislation...

    GOP members have released their draft amendment to defund President Barack Obama’s national amnesty. “None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available, including any funds or fees collected or otherwise made available for expenditure, by this division or any other Act, or otherwise available to the Secretary of Homeland Security, for any fiscal year may be used to implement, administer, carry out, or enforce the [amnesty] policies,” says the short amendment. The new anti-amnesty language is being pushed by Arizona Rep. Matt Salmon, South Carolina’s Rep. Mick Mulvaney and Virginia Rep. Dave Brat, who unseated the GOP’s pro-amnesty majority...

    Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is putting a call out to the American people: He needs help to kill President Barack Obama’s plans to grant executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. Sessions wants Americans to melt Congress’ phone lines, demanding their members make a precondition of any border crisis bill that Obama’s executive order amnesty via the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and any future plans be stopped.

    Focus on Benghazi and the illegal IRS abuse against political enemies. Who doesn't believe that the Moochelle heckler was staged? Sex abuse in the military a major story? Really? The foolish IRS overspending? That is old news. Yeah, the last two are infuriating, but they won't send Obama allies to jail. We need to focus on the scandals that will send people to jail... and could bring down a presidency. The AP story and even the massive phone records grab are important because it engages an otherwise sleepy leftist press.

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is endorsing the Palestinians' demand for their future state to be based on the borders that existed before the 1967 Middle East war, in a move that will likely infuriate Israel. Israel says the borders of a Palestinian state have to be determined through negotiations.

    The mainstream media are trying to put lipstick on the Obama pig.

In 1996, votes for Clinton only increased by 700,000 to 45,628,667. ...If the Republican vote had not been split in 1992 and/or 1996 by Perot, Clinton would have lost both elections.

    The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission — "responsible for identifying and designating the City's landmarks and the buildings in the City's historic districts" — has decided not to assign landmark status to a building on Park Place, two blocks north of Ground Zero. After the board's unanimous vote, its chairman, Robert B. Tierney, said the structure, which previously home to a Burlington Coat Factory, "does not rise to the level of an individual landmark." Having surmounted the hurdle, a developer is now free to change or demolish the 152-year-old structure, clearing the way for the construction of a controversial...

West is a member of the infamous Gitmo 9, lawyers who sued President Bush to get special treatment for the detained Islamic terrorists held in Cuba.

    At the end of Barack Obama’s worst week since taking power a year ago, the US president’s fortunes look set only to deteriorate over the coming days. Following the shock defeat of the Democratic candidate in Massachusetts on Tuesday, a move that deprived the president of his 60-seat super-majority in the Senate and left his legislative agenda in tatters, Mr Obama has just four days to reboot the system. The US president had originally delayed next week’s State of the Union address to Congress in the hope he would get his signature healthcare reform bill enacted in time. That prospect,...

  • Consumer borrowing rose unexpectedly in January

    AP ^ | Friday March 6, 2009, 3:36 pm EST | unexpectedly Martin Crutsinger,
    Consumer borrowing rose unexpectedly in January after three months of declines. The Federal Reserve said Friday that borrowing increased at an annual rate of $1.76 billion in the first month of the year. Economists expected borrowing to decline at a rate of $5 billion. Still, the small rise in January is unlikely to shake economists' views that borrowing will remain weak this year as consumers tighten their belts in the face of massive layoffs and the recession. Consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. The small increase came mainly from the category that includes credit cards,...

    President Barack Obama's first budget includes $15 billion a year for renewable energy programs and an ambitious plan to raise $646 billion from a carbon reduction proposal. "Because our future depends on our ability to break free from oil that's controlled by foreign dictators, we need to make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy," Mr. Obama said Thursday morning. "That's why we'll be working with Congress on legislation that places a market-based cap on carbon pollution and drives the production of more renewable energy." The plan uses money from a cap-and-trade program — which would allow companies to...

    Last March when polls reported that 10% of the population thought Barack Obama was Muslim, I counseled calm: Obama is a new character on the scene. As people get to know him, that percentage will decline. Instead, it's gone up. The newest poll from the Pew Research Center showed that 13% now believe he's Muslim - and a staggering 19% of McCain supporters believe him to be Muslim. Only 48% of Republicans say Obama is Christian (the balance is unsure). This is truly frightening - not so much because of the implications for Obama but because of what it says...

    It would be hard to make a better case against a Barack Obama presidency than the one Obama has made in his own words.  The most memorable thing about Obama’s speeches is not generally what he says, but rather how large and enthusiastic the audiences are.  If voters pay attention only to the symbolism and get caught up in the excitement of the Obamessiah and his throngs of fainting disciples, he stands a good chance of winning in November.  If voters pay attention instead to the things Obama is saying, the case against an Obama presidency will be clear.  Obama’s...

    In 2001, Senator Barack Obama was the only member of the Illinois senate to speak against a bill that would have recognized premature abortion survivors as “persons.” The bill was in response to a Chicago-area hospital that was leaving such babies to die. Obama voted “present” on the bill after denouncing it. It passed the state Senate but died in a state house committee. In 2003, a similar bill came before Obama’s health committee. He voted against it. But this time, the legislation was slightly different. This latter version was identical to the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which by...

The Obama family attended services at Chicago’s Apostolic Church of God, one of the city’s largest African American congregations and just six and a half miles from Obama’s former place of worship, Trinity Church of Christ. Longtime church leader Bishop Arthur Brazier greeted his “good friend” warmly and touchingly noted, “[Obama] has done something [in] this country that I never thought I would live to see.” He continued,...

At Obama headquarters in Chicago, hundreds of miles removed from the Beltway bubble, advisers held steadfast in their adherence to The Plan, a blueprint devised 15 months ago by the same inner circle that runs the campaign today, supported by the candidate and carried out by a tight-knit staff.

    PHILADELPHIA—Barack Obama’s final push through Pennsylvania has shown the combative, angry side of a candidate and campaign that had once been defined by its good cheer and condemnation of negative tactics. Despite the trappings of cheeriness—old-timey whistle-stop train tour, frequent professions of “love” for supporters—Obama’s closing argument was a distinctly negative one, designed to give the state’s significant percentage of undecided voters an uneasy feeling about Clinton, who is the Tuesday primary’s favorite, and to start laying the groundwork for his criticism of Republican nominee John McCain. At a number of well-attended public appearances, Obama depicted Clinton as a divisive,...

    WASHINGTON, April 20 (UPI) -- An e-mail soliciting contributions to U.S. Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign suggested that Hamas wants Barack Obama to win the White House. The e-mail sent out Friday said Obama's views on foreign policy have brought "kind words" from Hamas, CNN reported. It goes on to say that McCain, R-Ariz., "will never surrender to Islamic extremists." "Barack Obama's foreign policy plans have even won him praise from Hamas leaders," writes McCain deputy campaign manager Christian Ferry. "Ahmed Yousef, chief political adviser to the Hamas Prime Minister said, 'We like Mr. Obama and we hope he will...

    Today in Raleigh, North Carolina, Barack Obama attacked the debate held last night. He said "[w]e set a new record because it took us 45 minutes before we even started talking about a single issue that matters to the American people." He added, "that's just how Washington is." He mentioned Hillary Clinton and the crowd heartily booed.

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | April 11, 2008 | Peter Nicholas
    Fourteen months into a campaign that has the feel of a movement, Sen. Barack Obama has collided with the gritty political traditions of Philadelphia, where ward bosses love their candidates, but also expect them to pay up. The dispute centers on the dispensing of "street money," a long-standing Philadelphia ritual in which candidates deliver cash to the city's Democratic operatives in return for getting out the vote. Flush with payments from well-funded campaigns, the ward leaders and Democratic Party bosses typically spread out the cash in the days before the election, handing $10, $20 and $50 bills to the foot...
  • Obama: Repeal of 'don't ask, don't tell' possible (Obama supports openly gay military)

    WASHINGTON - Barack Obama says if elected president he will not require that his Joint Chiefs of Staff be opposed to the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that prevents gays from serving openly in the military. The Democratic presidential front-runner favors repealing the policy, which was instituted during the Clinton administration. He said his priority for the Joint Chiefs will be that they make decisions to strengthen the military and keep the country safe, not their position on the policy. "I would never make this a litmus test for the Joint Chiefs of Staff," Obama said in an interview with...

    Pinocchiobama by Erick Erickson Posted 04/08/2008 [Editor’s Note: Today, we’re beginning a new column: “RedState Under the Radar,” written by RedState’s editor and chairman, Erick Erickson. We think you’ll enjoy his coverage of important political stories you won’t see elsewhere.] Barack Obama seeks to portray himself as a new type of politician. He wants to lead us, he says, with hope for the future, change in the present and repudiation of the past eight years so that America can exchange the failed policies of the last eight years for those of the past one hundred years, He seeks, if you...

    OBAMA'S DIMESTORE 'MEIN KAMPF' by Ann Coulter April 2, 2008 If characters from "The Hills" were to emote about race, I imagine it would sound like B. Hussein Obama's autobiography, "Dreams From My Father." Has anybody read this book? Inasmuch as the book reveals Obama to be a flabbergasting lunatic, I gather the answer is no. Obama is about to be our next president: You might want to take a peek. If only people had read "Mein Kampf" ... Nearly every page -- save the ones dedicated to cataloguing the mundane details of his life -- is bristling with anger...

    US foreign policy towards the Middle East is unlikely to change with the election of a new president later this year, a leading political analyst said on Saturday. Speaking at a American Business Council (ABC) roundtable in Dubai, Michael Hudson, director of the Centre for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University, said on both the war in Iraq and the Middle East peace process none of the candidates had showed any real desire to change the status-quo. "It is hard to see much reason to expect any significant change in US policy towards the Middle East," Hudson said. "On the...
