Winter of Discontent survives Vernal Equinox
It happens every Spring. I speak of God-made global warming when Earth’s axis aligns with God’s warming agent, The Sun. Six weeks ago Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicted six more weeks of Winter, and sure enough, last week’s High Pressure system centered on the Potomac River produced a westward moving cold front that survives to impede, not only round bats striking round balls | Read More »
Un-Grand Government Inquisitors would double AIG money back
Soon after we learned of the AIG bonuses last weekend, we were told that taxpayer money must not be used to fund them. Late Tuesday that prospect was remedied: In an effort to quell a mounting furor, the Treasury Department said late Tuesday that it would require AIG to repay the government more than $165 million in bonuses doled out last week to the executives | Read More »
Can an ObamAIG-gate be Dodd-ged?
Timeline reveals Presidential and Democratic party undue dilligence, incompetence and/or duplicity worthy of a Gate-like scandal Senator Barack Obama’s campaign contributions from AIG prior to Election Day 2008 may be irrelevant to his subsequent actions and inactions as President and President-Elect. But it would seem a passing strange coincidence that the Illinois Democrat’s $101,332 “bonus” from AIG was second only to the $103,100 received by | Read More »
The death of non-CEO/AIG moral outrage (even if its not about sex)
Or, the continuing revenge of the eggheads for the conviction of Alger Hiss (pictured) The primary responsibility for the current economic crisis lies with elected Democrats in the White House in the late 90s and in Congress in the late 90s through today that coerced lenders to make mortgage loans to borrowers that couldn’t afford the loans and then guaranteed the loans with taxpayer dollars. | Read More »
Will Monrobama Doctrine let Russian bombers land in Georgias?
Or will he insist on O’Hare? The supposed second coming of JFK, too tired for classy diplomacy with our closest ally and too busy planning a fundamentally changed America four years from now to address the present banking and credit crisis, will soon be confronted with his very own Cuban Missile Crisis: Russia could use bases for its strategic bombers on the doorstep of the | Read More »
Striking puny earmark, pork and dishonesty from GOP mantra against Obama, Dems
Jimmy Carter never lied, Bill Clinton was re-elected and most Americans like bar-be-que pork and think an earmark is what is revealed when earrings are removed. President Barack Obama seeks to spend trillions to fundamentally change America and borrow more money in the next four years than was borrowed by all 42 of his predecessors over the last 233 years with a 40-year old Democratic | Read More »
Approval poll crisis opportunity for GOP to B(a)rea(c)k Obama agenda
For the first time since his election, President Obama is showing signs of compromise on conservative means of economic stimulus as well as his ambitious agenda of “fundamental change.” Despite the worst decline in the stock market in the first 50 days of a new presidency, Barack Obama had been exhibit A echoing Rahm Emanuel and Hillary Clinton’s crisis as opportunity mantra in pursuing longtime | Read More »
Youthful Obama too tired for classy diplomacy; plays basketball everyday
Barack Obama’s offhand approach to Gordon Brown’s Washington visit last week came about because the president was facing exhaustion over America’s economic crisis and is unable to focus on foreign affairs, the Sunday Telegraph has been told. If he were to focus more on the economic crisis the DOW might reach zero. The man gives non-obesity a bad name. He is too tired to do | Read More »
Already High Noon for Obama? No deputies want badge.
President Barack Obama has the most ambitious agenda of any American President. The only comparable ambitions of any other occupant were those of General George Washington before he took the oath. Yet, it seems that Obama is having a harder time enlisting soldiers in his cause than even Washington at Valley Forge: Three of Barack Obama’s nominations for key government positions have withdrawn from the | Read More »
Obama’s Kenyan devolution of Democrats’ anti-American foreign policy
A chastened President Carter attempted to invade Iran to rescue American hostages and funded the Mujahideen after the USSR’s invasion of Afghanistan. President Clinton named Iran as a co-conspirator in the bombing of the Khobar Towers. Neither Democratic Party President ever snubbed our greatest ally. President Obama has twice gone out of his way to insult the United Kingdom: first, by refusing to keep a | Read More »
Would Obama send the Statue of Liberty back to Paris?
Yes, if he discovers France ever mistreated Kenya and/or his paternal relatives. The British tried to kill George Washington and did kill thousands of Americans’ great grandfathers during the Revolution. They sacked the White House and Washington, D.C. during the War of 1812. Yet, the United States saw fit to let bygones be bygones in order to join hands with the United Kingdom to defeat | Read More »
The Foreclosing of the American Mind
Prior to this past weekend I had always considered home ownership to be the essence of the American dream. (Apologies for the length of this essay.) No longer. That was before I was shaken to my core by a prominent conservative blogger’s proposal on a radio show that the government mail $10,000 checks to families of four and criticism of the conservative-galvanizing rant against Obama’s | Read More »
Obama, killing Bank of, and America, softly with his song
Listening to our new President’s bank and American free enterprise killing words of late reminds me of Roberta Flack’s 1973 box office hit, “Killing me softly with his song“: Strumming my pain with his fingers Singing my life with his words Killing me softly with his song Killing me softly with his song Telling my whole life with his words Killing me softly with his | Read More »
Read Stimulus Bill (to Obama Dems) in a year
Yesterday in Denver, President Barack Obama signed the much ballyhooed 1079-page government-growth-ulus bill that neither he nor Congress had time to read before enacting it into law. As one of their We the People bosses, Gamecock suggests a group reading on the order of the “reading the Bible through in a year” programs or public library book clubs. For instance, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Public Library is | Read More »
Black History (at Howard University last) Month
The Pathology (of the left, and especially in Black America) III There was a time for widespread government initiated affirmative action and Black History Month. That time passed over twenty years ago, with the election of Barack Obama as the first black President being the result of the proof of the passing of the need, not the cause. The underlying reason for the need was | Read More »
Dems’ gangs massacred by St. Valentine’s Day
Eighty years ago today, Al Capone’s South Side gang executed seven rival gang members in cold blood as part of its Chicago war with Bugs Moran’s rival North Side criminal enterprise. The names of the victims were: Gusenberg, P; Gusenberg, F; Kachellek; Heyer; Schwimmer; May and Weinshank. The 1929 Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre shocked the conscience of Prohibition Era America and proved to be the | Read More »
The Gregg Census: Live free or die
Gregg’s conscience 2, personal ambition 1 Originally published by Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report The reasons for staunch conservative Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH) not to take the job of Commerce Secretary in any President’s administration, much less a liberal democrat’s, were always legion: 1) Gregg was one of many republicans that had called for the elimination of the Commerce Department as far | Read More »
Obama’s resort to The Big Lie
How many times in President Obama’s first press conference as President did he defend the stimulus bill by saying that the near unanimous Republican opposition is due to their desire to “do nothing”? I lost count of recitations of the big lie tonight, just as I lost count over of the big lies over the last 40 years of all the times that Democrats told | Read More »
The only thing we don’t have to fear is Obama himself?
President Barack Hussein Obama is no Franklin Delano Roosevelt Originally published by Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report On Wednesday, with unemployment at 7.6%, President Obama declared: “A failure to act, and act now, will turn crisis into a catastrophe…” Thursday, the president said: “The time for action is now, because we know that if we do not act, a bad situation will | Read More »
First fruits of Obama’s U.S. as Middle East “dictator” slander
Originally published by Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report It didn’t take long for President Barack Hussein Obama’s aggresion inviting weakness messages to bear fruit. Iran’s Jew genocide-seeking MembersOnlyJacket-ijad “reaches out” to our America-Criticizer-in-Chief (A-CINK), but I can’t tell if A-CINK will interpret this as an open hand or a clenched fist: “Those who say they want to make change, this is the | Read More »
