Jon Huntsman’s Newest Denial Defies Credibility
Jon Huntsman went to Florida and denied gearing up to run for President while serving as United States Ambassador to China. “There was no gearing up for a campaign, whatsoever,” Huntsman said, explaining that the campaign structure had been put together without his input. That defies credibility. In May of 2009, Jon Huntsman retained McCain strategist John Weaver to advise him on running for President. | Read More »
On This Nancy Pelosi Has My Thanks. God Bless Her.
None of us here are fans of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But I believe in praising people, whether I agree with them or not, when they deserve it. And Nancy Pelosi deserves our praise today. You may not know it, but Pelosi is an ardent foe of the Chicoms’ human rights record. As documented in the wikileaks releases, the Chinese are scared to death of the | Read More »
You Think China’s Gulags Are Bad? Let Me Tell You About Arizona.
You cannot parody the Obama Administration. China forcibly hauls women into vans to forcibly perform abortions, sends people to gulags, kills dissidents, etc., etc., etc. All of that apparently pales in comparison to Arizona. Yes, the Obama Administration is apologizing to China for Arizona’s existence. [Michael] Posner [the Assistant Secretary of State] said in addition to talks on freedom of religion and expression, labor rights | Read More »
Amateur Barack Obama’s Speechifying Causes an International Incident
While Americans are fixated on the weekend blizzard and the health care debate, the rest of the world is fixated on the disastrous “climate change” talks in Copenhagen. More importantly, though world leaders could not agree on much of anything significant, they could all agree on one thing: Barack Obama screwed up a delicate situation and unintentionally sunk the deal. For a man who is | Read More »
Pictures of the Week
The White House and the Speaker both have flickr pages. And they are the gifts that keep on giving. First, we have the leader of the free world supplicating himself to the leader of world oppressors. Is he begging for more time to pay off his/our debt? Then we have Tiger and the Cougar or, as Moe said, a photo entitled “Tiger Would”. Consider this | Read More »
Barack Obama’s First Military Decision Is Now Proven to be a Bad Decision
It has been almost 90 days since General McChrystal asked Barack Obama for more troops. No decision has been made. The General still waits as our soldiers keep dying. But that might actually be a better alternative to any decision Obama might make. As awful as that sounds, new information is proving Barack Obama’s got his first major military decision disastrously wrong and the repercussions | Read More »
Is Kay Bailey Hutchison the Republican Diane Feinstein?
Diane Feinstein is notorious for supporting greater funding for China and cooperation with Chicom military authorities because, in part, her husband makes millions of dollars dealing with China. It’s not just China. Feinstein has made out like a bandit from the Iraq War too. As chairperson and ranking member of the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee (MILCON) from 2001 through the end of 2005, Feinstein supervised | Read More »
Do You Believe A Statement Made Or the Post-Statement Spin?
The Commerce Department is running away from Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke’s statement this past weekend in China. While there, the Wall Street Journal reports, Locke said the United States should pay for China’s carbon emissions. In his own words, Locke said: “It’s important that those who consume the products being made all around the world to the benefit of America — and it’s our | Read More »
Today We Remember Tyranny and Defiance
People forget that the protests that June 4th were country wide, not just in Tiananmen Square. Today, China is trying its best to shut down the internet and news sources to keep the remembrances silent. China tries to wipe out the memory of the protests as it tries to wipe out the protestors themselves. We remember. We remember the tragedy. We remember that our nation | Read More »
Olympic Opening Ceremony is Lame Open Thread
They have nothing to resemble alphabetical order. The stunts are mostly lame. And no word yet if the torch will be lit with Tibetans and Falun Gong activists as kindling. Have I mentioned I hate the Chicoms? Here’s an open thread. UPDATE Did McDonalds design the Chicoms’ outfits? (kidding, yes I know it is the chicom color scheme). By the way, was I the only | Read More »
