Democrat Alan Dershowitz endorses Republican Joel Pollak–Rebuking Democrats
Original post at 73wire.com Via YouTube–Alan Dershowitz crossed party lines and endorsed Republican Joel Pollak rebuking the Obama agenda and fellow Democrat Rep. Jan Schakowsky in Illinois of all places. I have to admit, this is impressive from Dershowitz as he clearly recognizes the dire straits this country is in and he makes it known. If you are unfamiliar with Schakowski, you may know her | Read More »
Day 70: Obama Finally Accepts Foreign Aid for Oil Spill
Well, it’s about time. With a hurricane forming in the Gulf, oil washing up along the shorelines along the Gulf states, and major damage already done to the coast and industries, Obama finally has accepted foreign help: The United States is accepting help from 12 countries and international organizations in dealing with the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Obama Has His Priorities Straight for G8/G20 and Ditches Press Pool (again)
Yet another embarrassing moment for the United States as President Obama had this to say as he exited his helicopter: When U.S. President Barack Obama stepped off his helicopter in Huntsville on Friday, the first thing he said was, “You’ve got a lot of golf courses here, don’t you?” Industry Minister Tony Clement told the National Post in an exclusive interview. It’s nice to see | Read More »
No, Pelosi, YOU Show Us the Jobs
Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will not take up the Senate’s “doc fix” bill, which passed through the Senate on Friday. A letter from Pelosi reaffirms her position and scolds Republicans for blocking the jobs portion of the bill: “What is it that Republicans in the Senate and House don’t understand about the need for jobs in America? I see no reason to pass this | Read More »
Dear Charlie Crist: The Oil Is On the West Side of Your State
Recent reports of Florida’s governor, Charlie Crist, inspecting the beaches of Miami seem to be more of a photo oops than anything else. Obviously, I’m sure he’s concerned with his state, the revenue lost from canceled vacations, and the impending negative effects environmental disaster from the BP oil spill, it remains curious, though, why he hasn’t been back to the Gulf coast since early June. Instead he | Read More »
Does Obama Actually Agree with Helen Thomas on Palestine?
Timing couldn’t be worse on this one, and frankly, we are broke. Via the NYT: President Obama promised a $400 million aid package for the West Bank and Gaza on Wednesday, as the United States scrambled to come up with a way out of the stalemate in the Middle East exacerbated by the Gaza flotilla incident last week.

Are There Other Reasons for Obama to End the Whaling Ban?
Both the Left and Right are outraged at the latest broken campaign promise from Barack Obama is his support to lift the 26-year ban on commercial whaling that was put in place by, wait for it, Ronald Reagan. From the HuffPo piece: The IWC proposal would actually reward the whaling abuses of Japan, Norway, and Iceland. This “compromise” deal allows whaling countries to continue killing | Read More »
This Is What Real Leadership Looks Like
Via Drudge headlines, former President George W. Bush states that he would use waterboarding again if he had to. The old adage “hindsight is always 20/20″ comes to mind, doesn’t it. Except Bush would NOT change his decision and that is real leadership. “Yeah, we water-boarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed,” Bush said of the terrorist who master-minded the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on New York and | Read More »
Think the Census is Hinky? Here’s One of the Reasons Why
A recent opinion article by Richard Greener and George Kenney in the L.A. Times ponders why the census is counting illegals and the problems this may cause with congressional-seat allocation. As if it wasn’t enough for this White House — which has many problematic people in place as well as some serious and shady ethical issues — to take over the census, uneasy Americans are | Read More »
Obama does not care about his poll numbers.
Barack Obama’s poll numbers continue to plummet. Rasmussen has our president at 42% approval–a record low. I’d like to point out that he is only 17 months into his term. If Barack Obama cared about his poll numbers he would have changed course a long, long time ago. The truth is, he does not care. At all. Most dictator/tyrannical heads of government do not care. Does | Read More »
