OK, so by now, everyone has seen Obama’s comment about how he wasn’t interested in photo ops along the Texas border with Mexico. And, of course, everyone knows that’s a crock. I note McPhillips on Facebook saying so. I also note Limbaugh saying…. nothing but photo-ops.  Says he’s not interested in photo-ops?  That’s all he […]

http://www.returnofkings.com/33751/the-obsolete-man-the-death-of-the-american-mind A bit of brilliance at the link. The article is lengthy and a little geeky, given it draws geavily on an old ‘Twightlight Zone’ episode.  The author, however, draws a point in a fashion I’ve never quite seen before, so it is worthwhile. Note particularly the following… Imagine protesters agitating against a policy or […]

About that 2007 Obama Hamptons Video…   Here it is. I should warn you, that the draw  on the servers at the Daily Caller is apparently quite high. I’d be interested in seeing how many millions have seen the vid. I’d also give a lemon cookie for a peek at their security log. I’m willing […]

After being gone for a month, from around here, I find that I am terribly behind in my reading, and even further behind in my commentary on that reading. Almost instantaneously on dropping the clutch on this backlog comes Ithaca NY native,  and friendly voice, Billy Beck: “If people in Ithaca seem inured to suicide, […]

Obama can’t be too happy about this. In what can only be considered a flat rejection of Obama policy, Rasmussen reports: Fifty-eight percent (58%) of U.S. voters say waterboarding and other aggressive interrogation techniques should be used to gain information from the terrorist who attempted to bomb an airliner on Christmas Day. A new Rasmussen […]

Ron Bailey at Reason: Given the array of government energy mandates and billions in subsidies poured into cleantech, there is no doubt that those sectors will see increased jobs. The effect on overall employment is far less clear. Cleantech energy is currently more expensive than conventional sources of energy. Many argue that the price difference […]

George Monbiot, who is likely the biggest global warming propagandist in the press today, looks at the Global Warming emails that have been the topic of so much discussion lately and admits: It’s no use pretending this isn’t a major blow. The emails extracted by a hacker from the climatic research unit at the University […]

The record of the Democrats since attaining office has not been good, at least from the perspective of the average American. Let’s look at their key agenda points: Global Warming, as such has long been seen as a lie. That lie was unarguably exposed as such the other day. We’re told that the bailout spending […]

Hey Martin: …and says to you, “One of my favorite political philosophers is Adolph Hitler.” You gag back your outrage or you say “are you insane?” Or you just excuse yourself and keep moving. O.K., suppose someone from the White House gets up in front of an assembly of students out at the local high […]

Most people will remember, I think… at least those not ‘educated’ at government schools… that Hiroshima was hit by a bomb at the end of world war two… and we’ve all seen some of the destruction wrought by that attack. Just as a reminder, here’s a few pics of the aftermath. Remember in all cases […]

An interesting post at Q & O this morning. David Warren, writing in the Ottawa Ciitzen, takes a look at some of the “Gorbachev/Obama” comparisons that some are doing and finds them wanting.  But, he does find one thing the two men seem to share in common.  Something he calls a characteristic of the post-modern […]

Eric Boehlert, Media Matters,  to needs lay off the Jim Jones Kool-Aid: A President was killed the last time right-wing hatred ran wild like this That being John F.

Surber this morning: Democrat Nancy Pelosi cried like a little girl that those mean, un-American people on the other side frighten her. Pelosi sobbed: “This kind of rhetoric is just, is really frightening and it created a climate in which we, violence took place and… I wish that we would all, again, curb our enthusiasm […]

Van Jones the man behind the boycott of Glen Beck, communistist, Nine-Eleven Truther, rap artist, and the one’s green jobs czar has resigned his White House position.     It is only fair to go to Gateway Pundit for the story: Barack Obama’s communist-Truther Green Czar resigned on Saturday night. It looks like the FOX News All […]
