New Republic Editor: Parents “Disloyal” for Not Having Kids Listen to President Obama
Marty Peretz of the New Republic is usually a thoughtful liberal. I enjoy the New Republic. That’s why I was rather stunned by this article. Some parents don’t like the idea of the President beeming his image into every school in the country on Tuesday. I think a lot of people have gotten carried away with criticizing the president on this, but I’ll admit that I dislike it, | Read More »
Hillary Clinton for President: 2012 and The Gravity Of Discontent.
I have been wondering for a few weeks about Hillary Clinton and what she – and Billy Jeff – might be thinking when they see NObama’s numbers attracted by the increasing gravity of discontent. An article about her campaign fund still having several million dollars in it also hit my suspicious antennae! (The article naively wondered what was going on: what could be the purpose?) | Read More »
BREAKING—Hillary Renounces Pro-Choice View!
Well, not quite. Madame Secretary only seems disturbed by those “sex selection” abortions which favor boys (at the peril of girls, naturally). That, after all, amounts to discrimination. Next to “Republican” and “Bush” there’s probably no dirtier word in the language of the Left. To quote from Doug Bandow’s report in the American Spectator: Secretary Clinton, a supporter of unrestricted abortion, appears disturbed | Read More »

A Chill Wind Is Blowing Through This Nation
Originally Published at The Minority Report While I feel certain that actor Tim Robbins is equally as dissatisfied with the erosion of personal liberties under the Obama Administration as he was under the Bush Administration, he has not been afforded the opportunity to express those concerns before a national audience. That is an oversight that must be rectified. Here are his words — exactly as, | Read More »
SecState Clinton has 3 million in war chest.
Fascinating. WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton says running for office isn’t on her “radar,” but she still has an eight-person political team and sports two overflowing campaign war chests.

The only solution to the piracy problem is military action. There are no UN sanctions that can be imposed against the pirates, and UN resolutions condemning their actions are totally meaningless. This bring us to the scary proposition | Read More »
