    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. They are creating a self fulfilling prophesy of increasing poll numbers while trying to make the case that Obama can win in 2012 like Bill Clinton won in 1996... The facts about 1996 do not bear out what the pundits are trying to sell us. 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. Compare Reagan to Clinton. Votes for Reagan actually increased from 43,267,489 in...

    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...

    Am in DC, in office of Republican Congressman. It's just been confirmed by Eric Holder that Obama picked radical Seattle lawyer Tony West, who represented American Taliban John Walker Lindh, to lead the Dem's fight against Arizona's new immigration law. 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. This is the message Obama is sending to Arizona and the world: I love terrorists; I reward those who work for them, and I hate any state that chooses to defend its borders. Is...

    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,...

    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...

His comments were seized upon by the Republican campaign yesterday to raise fresh doubts about the prepared-ness of Mr Obama to be commander-in-chief.

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...

"Someone would be pretty hard pressed to make that argument," he told reporters aboard his campaign plane. "It is a speech that affirms the role of faith not just in my life but in the life of the American people, that suggests that we make a mistake by trying to push faith out of the public square."...

Rather, it was the kind that has a big old eagle on it and some Latin (Vero possumus, which translates very loosely to "Yes we can"). It's also a seal that combined elements of Richard Nixon's White House police uniforms and George W. Bush's "Mission Accomplished." And it went over about as well. Andrew Malcolm at the L.A.

    CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- Barack Obama celebrated Father's Day by calling on black fathers, who he said are "missing from too many lives and too many homes," to become active in raising their children.

During the primaries on Super Tuesday, he received only 35 percent of Latinos' vote, while former rival Sen. Hilary Clinton's received 63 percent. "There really wasn't an opportunity for Barack Obama to introduce himself to Latino voters. "He needs to get out there and do that and he needs to listen to Latino voters and understand what they care about," said Arturo Vargas, of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials.
