    Glenn Beck, Restoring Honor, and Leftist Delusion

    Say what you want about Glenn Beck, a polarizing figure on the American landscape, but don’t argue that last weekend’s rally, his spiritual lollapalooza, lacked miracles. No, angels didn’t descend from the clouds (though, if you saw the geese fly-over….) and no, it can’t be said, because it can’t be quantified, that honor was “restored.” But it is a miracle when a paunchy Mormon activist | Read More »

    Obama job approval at 78% among Muslims

    It comes as no surprise, though it is revealing, that of all the religions in America, the one giving the president great approval is the one of which he speaks fondly. In the latest Gallup poll, taken July 31st, Islamic Americans say they approve of the job the president is doing by a 3-to-1 ratio. War rages (he’s keeping his “eye on the ball”) and | Read More »

    Taliban Muslims hang seven year-old “spy”

    Taliban Muslims hang seven year-old spy It won’t be above the fold, beneath the fold, or behind the fold of the New York Times, but Muslims (which is what the Taliban are) made news today. First, they turned the vows between a groom and his bride into a bloody living hell, blowing up a wedding and killing dozens of guests. And, second, they hanged a | Read More »

    Obama to grads: Do as I say, not as I do….

    Obama to grads: Do as I say, not as I do Incredible. Barack Obama has done it again, turned the office of the presidency into a forum for lies. Monday, speaking to high school graduates, The Finger Pointer-in-Chief dropped jaws across the nation, claiming the high road with regard to excuse-making. To wit: “My second piece of advice—don’t make excuses. Take responsibility not just for | Read More »

    FTC does Pravda (be afraid)….

    FTC does Pravda (be afraid) Here we go again. In keeping with the Groundhog Day theme of this administration, the one that has me approaching news sites with dread, the Federal Trade Commission is out with its draft on the “reinvention of journalism.” The draft (isn’t Marxism fun?) titled Potential Policy Recommendations to Support the Reinvention of Journalism, outlines federal policies that would “rescue” moribund | Read More »

    FTC issues draft to “reinvent journalism” Here we go again. In keeping with the Groundhog Day theme of this administration, the one that has me approaching news sites with dread, the Federal Trade Commission is out with its draft on the “reinvention of journalism.” The draft (isn’t Marxism fun?) titled Potential Policy Recommendations to Support the Reinvention of Journalism, outlines federal policies that would “rescue” | Read More »

    Governor Christie shreds “greedy” teachers

    He’s done it again, Governor Christie of blue-turning-red-because-of-him New Jersey, made every American who loves leadership misty-eyed. Speaking to the Federation For Children in Washington D.C., the good governor tore into public teachers unions with customary resolve. For your pleasure: “Parents and children who are being failed by a public school system whose costs are exorbitant and whose results are insulting deserve a choice. We | Read More »

    Memorial Day-where was the flag?!

    Memorial Day: where were the flags? Now that President Obama is back from Chicago, fresh from declaring June, 2010, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender month, I’d like to memorialize Memorial Day. It’s not dead (yet), but like other American traditions (marriage, a strong military), it’s dying, and a genuine symptom is the absence of the flag. In the last month, we’ve seen Old Glory banned | Read More »

    Obama “open” to Puerto Rican statehood

    Obama “open” to Puerto Rico statehood Call it “Amnesty, East Coast style,” call it “the Bilingual Express,” but in keeping with the theme of “fundamental transformation,” the task force on Puerto Rican statehood (yes, there is one) has been quietly scheming to move this ball forward. Associate Attorney General, Thomas Perrelli, addressing “taskers,” recently shared some high-level thoughts: “President Obama is open to the idea | Read More »

    Obama visits, workers lose pay

    Obama visits, workers lose pay Green jobs! Yes, while the Gulf of Mexico (“that ocean,” according to Janet Napolitano) slicks with crude, and a prime contributor to Obama plugs the leak, the president managed to visit California. Obama, being a “regular guy,” sought to couple his appearance at a $17,000 per/plate fundraiser for Babs Boxer with a next-day, touch-the-people event. Green jobs, created by him, | Read More »
