The CDC Coverup Now Turns to Bureaucratic Panic
“The CDC told us last week there were ‘no plans’ to release the data. The CDC now says it is scheduled for ‘this month’.

74 or 35 or More of the Same. The Pledge to Nowhere Comes Back to Bite the GOP on the Bottom.
“We will put government on a path to a balanced budget and pay down the debt with a plan to … Cut government spending to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels saving at least $100 billion in the first year alone.” — A Pledge to America I was roundly attacked for calling the Republicans’ “Pledge to Nowhere” a lot of pablum.

Obama Administration Covering Up Abortion Data *Updated*
Let’s be clear: promoting science isn’t just about providing resources – it is also about protecting free and open inquiry.

It is about ensuring that scientific data is never distorted or concealed to serve a | Read More »
Is John McCain Back to Being a Maverick Now?
In Donald Rumsfeld’s new book, he characterizes John McCain as having a “hair-trigger temper” with “a propensity to shift his positions to appeal to the media.”McCain has struck back saying how happy he is that Rumsfeld was ultimately forced out.Of course this does not change Rumsfeld’s characterization. McCain is, after all, the man who claimed for years to be a straight talking maverick who rode | Read More »

Barack Obama’s Egypt Failure: He’s Becoming Carter Faster Than Carter Became Carter
Barack Obama’s failure in Egypt has nothing to do with Egypt itself descending to chaos. No American administration has been willing to call Hosni Mubarak a dictator, which he is. And no administration has sought to strong arm Mubarak into a succession plan devoid of kleptocratic relatives.We cannot blame Barack Obama for Egypt collapsing in on itself.We can however blame Barack Obama for failing to | Read More »
