Re: My Committee
During my lengthy tenure on the Senate Banking Committee, I’ve continually led the way in sponsoring legislation that will not just eliminate fees for use of gas station ATMs, reduce fines for people who bounce checks, but actually require banks to give you money for doing nothing, utilizing the so-called “Monopoly Community Chest Card” calculation.
How Many More “Thousands Gone In A Instant” Moments Will It Take?
Consider for a moment – if in the hour of reckoning in WW2, as Patton rolled through Europe, and the enemy had retreated back to there homeland, that Roosevelt had come to the unthinkable (now) conclusion that we had, for all intents and purposes, got the job done, and re-deployed our troops…Specken De Deutch? Roosevelt, Truman, & Kennedy. Names BHO likes to throw around, he | Read More »
An Attempt to understand Obama’s views on Iraq
On Monday night Obama told Terry Moran that he would not have supported the surge even if he knew then that it would be so successful in enabling stability in Iraq. Terry: If you had to do it over again knowing what you know now would you support the surge. Barack: No. No because I… keep in mind that, that… Terry: You wouldn’t. Barack: …that | Read More »
Why no bounce for Barack Obama?
The American political media cannot understand why president candidate Barack Obama’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem Tel Aviv and elsewhere has not pushed him further to the fore in the heart’s of America’s voters. The TIME glossy infotainment magazine’s blog Swampland offers us this gem: Lots of speculation on the web, and in whispering circles, about why Obama’s foreign trip–a slam-dunk success substantively and in photo-op | Read More »
Obama Replaces American Flag With Obama Logo
When John McCormick reported Obama replaced his Boeing 737 campaign plane with a Boeing 757, he noted the new aircraft had “a giant flag painted on its tail.” In yet another display of his patriotism, Obama replaced the American flag with the Obama Logo. Lynn Sweet reports that Obama’s 757 has been repainted “with the Obama sunrise logo on the tail.” Oh the audacity of | Read More »
Deconstructing Obama’s Iraq Plan
Let me give a hat tip to Andy McCarthy at NRO. He posted a link and excerpt from a blog post by Steve Schippert at ThreatsWatch.org. This article is a very important analysis of what really happened in Iraq, and explains why Obama’s narrative from this week is worse than simple political spin. It is dangerously naive and dead wrong. Obama’s 2007 “plan” would have | Read More »
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH ISSUED ORDERS TO ASSASINATE AMERICAN CITIZEN, LORI ZARLENGA-BLAQUIERE
6-7-08 My name is Lori Zarlenga- Blaquiere. I was born on September 14, 1961 in the state of Rhode Island. I am writing to you for your immediate help. My life is in immediate danger from orders issued by President George W. Bush and Rhode Island Governor Donald Carcieri to assassinate/murder me. The Department of Justice and law enforcement agencies, among others, are engaged in | Read More »
Time for another translation from Obamese.
Today’s I’m-sorry,-what? comes to us from his speech in Israel: A bit of surprise, that, considering that the US Senate Committee of Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs doesn’t number him among their members. I can only conclude that he decided that his bill – The Iran Sanctions Enabling Act of 2007, which he co-sponsored (along with a mere 15% of the Senate) – was enough | Read More »
Reflections on Obama in Berlin
As Barack Obama conducts a campaign event in front of a column memorializing three wars of aggression by 19th century Prussia I hope every Berliner realizes what an Obama-like presidency in 1948 would have meant for them. Today Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus helps us recall: But there are lessons from the airlift that should be more unsettling for those, like Obama, who want to | Read More »
Washington Post Reporters Take Another Dive in the Tank
Yesterday we posted on the pretty obvious dive into the tank the Washington Post was taking for Barack Obama. As evidence we pointed to the rather shameless sucking up Dan Eggen and Sudarsan Raghavan offered to the Obama campaign at the expense of their integrity — or whatever passes for such a notion with them — and the truth. It seems as though we may | Read More »
You know, I’m starting to think that the WaPo doesn’t *approve* of Obama’s Iraq policy.
I know, it sounds difficult to believe – but for some strange reason, the Washington Post seems almost… well, skeptical about the whole “run away from our responsibilities to the Iraqi people and attempt to recreate that entire South Vietnam collapse” thing. In fact, I would go so far as to suggest – maybe, just maybe! – that the WaPo might actually think that this | Read More »
The Potemkin Candidate Benefits From Leni Riefenstahl’s Heir
In Israel, Barack Obama was twice given the chance to answer the question, “Can you ensure that there will be no second Holocaust?” Both times Obama declined to answer. The American media did nothing to engage Obama on the issue. Obama has likewise stripped the American flag from the back of his new 757 in favor of his campaign logo. The American media has done | Read More »
These are the Torturing, Maniacs Obama Thinks he can Befriend
In 1999 a handsome, earnest young man named Ahmad Batebi defied Ayatollah Khamenei in Iran. His photo caused an instant sensation and became a symbol of the flower of Iran standing ready to oppose the oppression of the Iranian religious regime. Batebi, 31, became an icon after he was photographed as a handsome young student waving the blood-stained shirt of a fallen demonstrator during mass | Read More »
The Candidate For Change
When it comes to education, change doesn’t come from the person you might expect would offer it.
