Van Jones resigned as President Obama’s so-called “green jobs czar” in 2009. Or as we put it then, “Truth ousts Obama’s ‘Truther’ czar.” The Jones resignation was an attempt to stop the damage to Obama from the revelations that Jones signed the “9/11 truther” statement — which alleges government complicity in the 9/11 terror attacks, the fact that Jones was an admitted communist and video | Read More »

Senate Democrats gamed Republicans and saved their unpopular President from issuing a veto to get his request for another $500 billion in the national debt. Last night, after Obama’s “pass this bill” speech, 52 Senate Democrats voted not to consider the Resolution disapproving President Obama’s request to increase the national debt. Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America | Read More »

President Obama, on yet another taxpayer-funded reelection campaign junket — this one billed as a preview of his upcoming big jobs speech, called for a bipartisan response to his latest plan amidst extreme partisan rhetoric.
