    By Mr. Curmudgeon:President Obama may have invoked executive privilege to blunt Congressional efforts to learn the truth regarding his administration's Operation Fast and Furious, which put weapons in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, but it didn't stop authorities south of the border from apprehending a killer.Jesus Leonel Sanchez is one of five men accused in the shooting death of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in the bleak Arizona desert on a cold December night in 2010. Two weapons recovered at the murder scene were later traced to the Justice Department's deadly gunrunning operation.Robert Heyer, Terry's cousin and the...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Democrats left their gathering in Charlotte, North Carolina, not having paid "their fair share." According to Bloomberg News, the party of the "little guy" left Charlotte "with more than $5 million in immediate obligations and may require a direct cash infusion from the Obama campaign to pay vendors," said Bloomberg.These vendors were located inside the Charlotte Convention Center and the Time Warner Cable Arena. Vendors located outside were equally short changed.Legacy Village was the vendor's area situated under a tent outside the convention hall, where delegates voted to expel God and Jerusalem from the party's consciousness before its...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Gone were the Greek columns of 2008 and with them, Denver's enthralled masses that totaled 84,000. Thursday, rain fell on Charlotte, North Carolina, and the hall seated no more than 22,000 desperate and crestfallen listeners. The backdrop to this occasion was a deep blue that reflected the mood in the hall and the country at large. Gone, too, were the magical incantations from an illusionist whose power failed to conjure up government-generated prosperity and well-being for the nation's more than 300 million soles.Left with nothing but a litany of failure to present his listeners, President Obama was forced...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Wednesday evening, Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate and self-styled Native American, Elizabeth Warren, told her party's delegates meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, "People feel like the system is rigged against them. And here's the painful part: they're right." The rigging, insisted Warren, was the dastardly work of oil companies, billionaires and Wall Street CEOs.Warren, embroiled in a tight race against Republican Scott Brown, spoke prior to former President Bill Clinton, who demanded that Americans complete the "incomplete" hope and change aspirations of Barack Obama by returning him to the White House.That's when it struck me. Bill Clinton is from...

Word got out that God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital was struck from the Democratic Party platform, and so a hasty decision was made to rectify the telling blunder.Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, chairman of the Democratic National Convention, put a motion before the convention's delegates to suspend the rules and allow an amendment to the party platform. The measure passed by a roaring voice vote.That was the easy part.Then former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, platform committee chairman, rose...

I bet the nation's amber waves of grain were obscured by millions of empty chairs stretching from sea to shining sea.A hint to the new holiday's success was the Clint Eastwood marathon on American Movie Classics that same day. "Clint Eastwood resonates with voters outside the snotty, derisive NY-DC-Hollywood axis," conservative columnist Michelle Malkin told Politico, "He braved derision and ridicule for standing on the [Republican] convention stage."Make no mistake, the left's mockery of Eastwood's empty chair stunt was...

Inspired by Clint Eastwood's Republican Convention soliloquy to an empty chair, representing the vacant years of the Obama presidency, many have been inspired to emulate Eastwood by declaring Monday (formally known as Labor Day) "Empty Chair Day."As you may recall, the action hero of such film classics as "Dirty Harry" and "The Outlaw Josey Wales" used an empty chair as a prop to address our failed president. "We own this country," Eastwood said to the chair, "Politicians are employees of ours ... and when somebody does not do the job,...

Dinesh D'Souza, who is also the film's narrator, wrote the book from which the Rocky Mountain Pictures' offering gets its name.According to Deadline Hollywood, Friday's box-office rating put Sylvester Stallone's "Expendables 2" at number one, "The Bourne Legacy" in second place and "2016" in third. "That's stunning," said the entertainment website, "because it's playing in 1/3 less theaters across North America than the other wide-release actioners."The film explores President Obama's early years; in particular, the people...

It is totalitarian in that it views everything as political and holds that any action by the state is justified to achieve the common good. It takes responsibility for all aspects of life, including our health and well-being, and seeks to impose uniformity of thought and action, whether by force or through regulation and social pressure. Everything, including the economy and religion, must be aligned with its objectives. Any rival identity...

But the greatest force in the universe - stupidity - is helping to level the playing field.After the Aurora, Colorado, shooting, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg appeared on CNN to speak with host Piers Morgan."I don't understand why the police officers across this country don't stand up collectively and say, 'We're going to go on strike. We're not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:As even the most casual observer of the news knows, the Obama administration's sale of weapons to Mexican drug cartels was intended to support the president's contention that American guns are chiefly responsible for the ongoing war now waging between drug gangs and the government south of the border. If not for the revelations regarding the Justice Department's Operation Fast and Furious, the massacre of Mexico's innocents would have provided Obama and his gun-grabbing Democrats the ammunition needed to reinstate the U.S. assault weapons ban, which lapsed during the presidency of George W. Bush.However, the killing spree that...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:"We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his government," Cuban dictator Fidel Castro said of President Obama shortly before ObamaCare's passage into law, "It is really incredible that 234 years after the Declaration of Independence ... the government of that country has approved medical attention for the majority of its citizens, something that Cuba was able to do half a century ago."Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid's 110th Democratically-controlled Congress agreed, passing the measure unread.Monday, Venezuela's socialist leader, and candidate for president, attacked his rival, Henrique Capriles, for being too much like Republican...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Remember President Lyndon B. Johnson's "war on poverty"? In a 1964 speech before a joint-session of Congress, Johnson declared "unconditional war on poverty in America," urging "Congress and all Americans" to join him "in that effort."Johnson insisted his escalated war - on poverty, not in Vietnam - would turn "one thousand dollars invested in salvaging an unemployable youth" into "$40,000 or more in his lifetime." He further stated that for the program to work required massive social programs "organized at the State and the local level ... supported and directed by State and local efforts.""For my part," said...

Some men just want to watch the world burn."~ Actor Michael Caine as Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred in the Batman film "The Dark Knight."I did not see the film above when it was released in theaters around the country in 2008. I thought it was just so much kid stuff and didn't want to waste my time.I was wrong.A friend called and insisted I rent the DVD and watch what he considered one of film's more accessible morality tales masked in the garb of comic book lore.The most interesting characters were The Joker and industrialist Bruce Wayne's...

    Whenever the IRS is involved everyone knows its job is to collect taxes, taxes, taxes. What the IRS will be doing with the health care bill is to collect yet another tax. That is what the IRS does by definition. That is its purpose and has always been so. If voters have a choice to get rid of the IRS out of their lives, it will not be hard to divine what they will choose.If the health care bill is not a tax, why is the IRS enforcing it?When people think of the IRS, what first comes to mind?

    By Mr. CurmudgeonBrian Ross of ABC News erroneously identified the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooter as a member of the Tea Party Patriots. The man accused of firing an assortment of weapons into a packed theater, killed 12 and wounded 59. ABC misidentified James Holmes, the alleged shooter, age 24, as 52-year-old James Holmes of the Colorado Tea Party Patriots.This, of course, should come as no surprise. Keen observers of the American political scene view The Tea Party as most responsible for the dramatic reversal of fortunes afflicting the Obama presidency and the Democratic Party since the midterm elections of...

    By Mr. CurmudgeonLast January, Andrew Bynum - a center for the L.A. Lakers - was reminiscing about former teammate Kwame Brown. "He's a grown man now," Bynum said of Brown to the Los Angeles Times, "He's grown into his body well. He's a lot more physical than when he first came in. That was my young fella, I taught him everything he knows." The Times' sports writer generously described Bynum's remarks as pure "fantasy."It's a natural tendency among those who feel inadequate to claim some credit for the success of others. President Obama has transformed this small psychological character flaw...

    By Mr. CurmudgeonIt appears Romney's tenure at the private equity firm he co-founded, Bain Capital, is to be the central theme of the 2012 presidential campaign. If not, President Obama would have to run on his record. And with so many of his green energy "investments" going bankrupt, joblessness on the increase, the economy shrinking, his mafia consigliere found in contempt of Congress, the president and his re-election team have decided to change the subject."Our selling weapons to Mexican drug lords may have led to the deaths of hundreds of innocents," team Obama seems to be saying, "But Romney is...

    By Mr. CurmudgeonIt's desia vu all over again. The presidential campaign of 2012 is starting to look a lot like the campaign of 2008. As you may recall, that's the one where Republican voters were told they needed to nominate a safe, bipartisan Republican for president - the kind of politician, we are told, independent voters lust for.Right on cue, accommodating Republicans nominated Sen. John McCain, a man with a hint of a vague inkling bordering on an indication of an idea. Much to his credit, the clueless candidate picked a vice presidential running mate that was a better man...

    By Mr. CurmudgeonWhen Ibn Jubayr, the secretary to the Muslim governor of conquered Spain visited the Great Pyramid of Giza in 1182, he described it as a "miraculous construction and wonderful to look upon." Historian John O'Neill (author of "Holy Warriors") said the Islamic dignitary was blissfully ignorant as to its builders, believing the ancient structures to be "the tombs of early prophets mentioned in the Koran." Jubayr lamented, "To be short, none but the Great and Glorious God can know their story."You see, by Jubayr's time, all Greco-Roman historical sources were swept from the Muslim-dominated world ... they felt...

    By Mr. CurmudgeonHere we are, at the midpoint of 2012, and unemployment - thanks to stimulus spending (and borrowed Chinese money) - stands at 5.6%. No, wait a minute, it's not! That was the rosy prediction by the smartest man on the planet back in 2009 - Barack Obama.Friday's jobs report failed to move U.S. unemployment below its three-month 8.2% level. Of course, that Department of Labor Statistics' figure (classified U-3) does not include Americans who have run through their unemployment benefits and still cannot find work. The more accurate U-6 figure puts real U.S joblessness at 14.8%.The smartest man...

    By Mr. CurmudgeonAre you upside-down on your mortgage? Would you like to refinance at a lower, more affordable rate? It's too bad you're not a congressman or a high-level federal bureaucrat.A just released report by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee shows that the now defunct Countrywide Financial Corp., the mortgage underwriter that turned subprime lending into a ticking time bomb, created a "VIP loan unit" to provide "hundreds of loans to current and former Members of Congress, congressional staff, high ranking government officials and executives and employees of Fannie Mae ... VIPs who worked at Fannie Mae enjoyed...
