What Obama care will look like

It won't be pretty.

Anti-war groups turn against Obama

But will America's left wing media cover it?

"Some organisations that campaigned against the Iraq war are biding their time or are more inclined to side with the president's argument that a stronger counter-insurgency effort in Afghanistan is in US national interests."


Say what? Anti war people for a war? First I heard.

Why isn't Rangel in jail?

If you or I did this we would be in jail.

More here.

It's shameful how the left wing meida cover for him.

Secret process benefits pet projects

How Obama waste your money.

"Despite Obama's promises that the stimulus plan would be transparent and free of politics, the government is handing out $720 million for border upgrades under a process that is both secretive and susceptible to political influence. This allowed low-priority projects such as the checkpoint in Whitetail, Mont., to skip ahead of more pressing concerns, according to documents revealed to The Associated Press."

WHO warns of severe form of swine flu

This sounds bad.

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Doctors are reporting a severe form of swine flu that goes straight to the lungs, causing severe illness in otherwise healthy young people and requiring expensive hospital treatment, the World Health Organization said on Friday."

"This aint America no mo" - video

Speaks for itself.

Where’s the Outrage?

Hypocrites.

Questions for Nancy Pelosi

Good luck getting answers.

Ted Kennedy - traitor

The left would prefer you not remember this.

Krauthammer's Take

from last night.

"What's killing the Obama health plan is not the Republicans, it's not the Blue Dogs, it isn't the rallies in the town meetings. It's numbers. It's reality. Obama says: "I'm going to expand coverage and reduce the cost." And the CBO, the Congressional Budget Office, steps in and gives you numbers. It says: No, it will not reduce. It will increase our costs by $1 trillion.

Obama says: "Oh, yes, [cost might rise] in the first decade , and then it will decline." The CBO says no. There will be an increase in the deficit in the second decade. It's the numbers and the reality that is sinking Obamacare."


Read the whole thing.

Western Women in Muslim Lands

The left have deemed Muslims "victims" and therefore they can do no wrong. For the left, women as "victims" is so yesterday. Gays? Please. The left threw them under the bus a long time ago.

Here's your homework assignment. Who is going to be the left's next "victim"?

Who are the real grass roots people? - video

Democrat Rangel's multimillion-dollar "oops"

If he were a Republican this scandal would be all over the news. If a regular citizen did this they would be in jail.

"Rep. Charlie Rangel's multimillion-dol lar "oops" this month raises plenty of good questions, but this may be the best: How can Democrats continue to close their eyes to such sleaze?

And, more to the point, this: Will prose cutors follow up on any of it? "


Here's the answer to that question.

Who's the culture of corruption now? You can be forgiven for not having heard of these scandals. The left wing media have been in the tank for the Democrats for a long, long time now.

Democrats busing in Union goons

to disrupt townhall meetings. The left can't handle free speech. Be sure and watch the video.

UAE Seizes North Korean Weapons Shipment to Iran

Seems that "smart diplomacy" thing isn't working out so well for Obama.

The sowers of racial discord

So much for Obama's post racial politics pledge. Seems to me we've seen a lot more of this since Obama was elected.

Obama wants to control the Internet

Obama is on one big power grab.

Fifth generation warfare

and how to fight it.

Democrats Left Tort Reform Out of Health Care

Because They Feared 'Taking On' Trial Lawyers. That's what Howard Dean says.

“This is the answer from a doctor and a politician,” said Dean. “Here is why tort reform is not in the bill. When you go to pass a really enormous bill like that the more stuff you put in, the more enemies you make, right? And the reason why tort reform is not in the bill is because the people who wrote it did not want to take on the trial lawyers in addition to everybody else they were taking on, and that is the plain and simple truth. Now, that’s the truth.”

Barack Obama's Civilian Army

The Nazi comparison is looking more accurate.

"THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BARACK OBAMA: We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."


Sounds like the SS to me.

Think about what Obama is saying. He wants a "civilian national security force that's just as powerful" as our military. What would be the purpose of such a force? We already have local police, state police, the National Guard, the FBI and Homeland Security. What do we need Obama's brown shirts for?

Glenn Beck's audience swells

The left's attempts to end free speech fails again.

Pelosi vs. the CIA

Who lied?

What Would Mary Jo Kopechne Have Thought of Ted's Career?

Huff n Puff has the answer.

"We don't know how much Kennedy was affected by her death, or what she'd have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history. What we don't know, as always, could fill a Metrodome.

Still, ignorance doesn't preclude a right to wonder. So it doesn't automatically make someone (aka, me) a Limbaugh-loving, aerial-wolf-hunting NRA troll for asking what Mary Jo Kopechne would have had to say about Ted's death, and what she'd have thought of the life and career that are being (rightfully) heralded.

Who knows -- maybe she'd feel it was worth it. "


Speechless.

White House organizes boycott of Glenn Beck

Free speech under attack from Obama's White House? Now who's un-American?

Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team

The tax man himself, Charlie Rangel is one of them.

There are so many corrupt Democrats someone should write a book about them. Oh, they already have. That was quick. But to be fair, there are so many it was like shooting fish in a barrel.

Sheehan returns to rebuke Obama

Where's the coverage?

Muslim massacre

Where's the outrage? If the Israelis had done this we would see BBC reports ad infinitum condemning the killers. But, as Tim Marshall points out, since this is Muslims killing Muslims, who cares?

Note also the Mosque and Koran desecration. Where's the Muslim outrage? It's OK for Muslims to behave in this fashion but, you just let one of us unclean infidels even touch a Koran and it's killing time.

"And where is the outrage about these murders. The marches, the petitions, the calls for a boycott, the conspiracy theory of a war against Muslims, ad infinitum? I hear just the wind blowing across the freshly dug graves. Because unless the Israelis kill them, people don't care."


Ditto America and Britain.

My H1N1 Story - JB WILLIAMS

I suspect this holds true for Britain as well.

Obama's Summer of Discontent

Have the rules changed?

Ted Kennedy had a car accident

I was watching the BBC's coverage of a review of Kennedy's life. Below the announcer was a text message that gave highlights of his life. I almost fell out of my chair when the text read "1969 Kennedy has car accident". That's like saying a murderer had a knife accident.

This is typical BBC bias by omission. Mary Jo Kopechne was Kennedy's victim in that "car accident".

Death of a Libel Tourist

Good riddance.

Obama's Green Jobs 'Czar' Exposed - video

Radicals in the White House.

US names secret terror suspects

More damage to our national security by Obama. The BBC reports.

"The US military has begun notifying the Red Cross of the identities of terror suspects being held at secret camps in Iraq and Afghanistan, reports say. ["secret camps" where's the outrage? ed.]

The Red Cross, which has lobbied the Pentagon for years to give its staff access to all detention facilities, declined to confirm the changes.

The policy reportedly took effect this month with no public announcement. "


Now, I wonder why that would be?

This bit is revealing.

"Dozens of suspected foreign fighters captured in Iraq and Afghanistan are being held at so-called "temporary screening camps" run by US special forces at secret locations in Balad in Iraq and Bagram in Afghanistan. "


"Foreign fighters" in Iraq and Afghanistan? Now who might they be?

Why would the Pentagon want to keep their names secret anyway?

"The Pentagon has previously said that providing information about these detainees could jeopardize counter-terrorism efforts."


It would seem then, that Obama no longer cares about such efforts.

Israel leading Egypt in Gaza boycott

That's what the BBC says.

"Tunnels from Egypt are used to smuggle weapons and goods into Gaza, which is under an Israeli-led blockade. "


Got that? Israel is leading the blockade, so Egypt closed its border with Gaza in compliance, which led to tunnels from Egypt. Make sense to you? Me neither.

Egypt closed its border with Gaza the same day Israel did and for the same reason - to prevent terror attacks from Hamas.

Holder the Hypocrite

Is there any other kind of Democrat?

Hopefully this will catch on for British troops as well.

Krauthammer's Take

From last night.

Finance Chair for Hillary Clinton and DSCC Arrested

More corruption from the Democrats. It's a 24/7 business with the Democrats.

The CIA and watch out for what you wish for

When Bush was president the CIA regularly attacked him and his administration by leaking highly classified information to the New York Times.

Now the tables are reversed and it's the CIA under attack from Obama and his administration. All the while bin Laden and all the other terrorists are laughing their collective asses off.

British troops in Afghanistan

Need better kit.

More ethics problems for Rangel

More Democrat corruption. What's new. So much for Pelosi draining the swamp.

Democrats ratchet up the violence

Notice how it's always the left causing the violence?

And the Democrats are planning a lot more violence.

The Democrats bomb people too.

More Democrat bombers here.

Tell me again, who is the un American mob?

White House projects bigger deficits, bigger debt

Obama wants to spend even more of our money!

"WASHINGTON – The federal government faces exploding deficits and mounting debt over the next decade, White House officials predicted Tuesday in a fiscal assessment far bleaker than what the Obama administration had estimated just a few months ago.

Figures released by the White House budget office foresee a cumulative $9 trillion deficit from 2010-2019, $2 trillion more than the administration estimated in May. Moreover, the figures show the public debt doubling by 2019 and reaching three-quarters the size of the entire national economy."

Obama's dilemma over CIA tactics

The BBC comes to Obama's aid.

You see, according to the BBC, if it were just only up to Obama this whole mess would go away.

"Mr Obama's own instincts on the matter are interesting.

He talks of wanting to look to the future, not the past, which is a clear enough signal that if it were up to him he might well decide on balance that it would be better not to re-open old wounds. "


But it is up to Obama "not to re-open old wounds". The United States Attorney General serves at the pleasure of the President. Translation - Obama can fire him. There's no way Obama didn't know this was coming and could have ordered Holder to stop or be fired.

Here's what this is really all about.

"But on the left of the Democratic Party there is a real appetite for proceeding with further investigations into these interrogations and for prosecutions.

In the eyes of many, this is an opportunity to put the Bush administration itself on trial. "


This is just an attempt by Obama to get attention off his failed health care reform program.

The BBC fails to point out the hypocrisy of the Democrats as well.

"For years, while George W Bush was in the White House, Democrats railed impotently against what they regarded as illegal wars, immoral detention and interrogation techniques, and a dark and secretive political atmosphere in which they sense American values were betrayed. "


Those two wars still continue, rendition flights continue and Bagram airbase in Afghanistan is Obama's Gitmo. Let's not forget that 8 months on and Gitmo is still open.

"They have the upper hand now and they want to take advantage of this. "


Yep, playing politics with our national security is the hallmark of Democrats.

"Mr Obama's advisers will be horrified at the idea of going into the mid-term elections at the end of next year with the impression in the air that Republicans are tough on national security issues, while they are merely tough on Republicans.

Mr Holder's new investigation will provide a measure of breathing space on the issue for the White House. "


Translation - this is just an attempt to appease the far left. The investigation will drag on through next years elections and Obama will be able to say he can't comment on ongoing investigations. We will be told to be patient and wait for the investigation to run its course.

But the BBC want you to be in no doubt that this is all Bush's fault.

"The search will now once again be on for some way to defuse the landmines left by the old administration in the path of the new. "


Just one problem with that, Obama reopened the minefield himself.

Bias at the BBC

is rife.

The only way to get the BBC to change is to convice them that the white middle class are now the "victims". Once we have "victim" status the BBC will rally around us. Yeah, right.

The BBC love their terrorists

Profile: Zulfiqar Mehsud

Check out the smiling photo of Mehsud and then read the article.

"Despite his pleasant demeanour and cheeky smile, danger radiated from the man. "


Sounds like James Bond, no?

"Since then, Zulifiqar Mehsud's star has continued to rise."


The BBC thinks this terrorist is a rising "star". And, they want you to feel sorry for him.

"But his beginnings were hardly auspicious.

Born in the region of Kotkai near the town of Jandola in South Waziristan, Zulfiqar Mehsud's only schooling was at a small village madrassa in Hangu district. "


My heart bleeds for him.

"Baitullah's consolidation of most of Pakistan's Taliban groups into a single entity provided growing opportunities for his talented young friend. "


The BBC fails to explain those talents include blowing people up and beheading them.

"Zulfiqar Mehsud was already famous within the Taliban for his skills in battle - his ability to handle a Kalashnikov and a Toyota pick-up were legendary. "


Now he's "famous" and "legendary".

"The comparison with Zulfiqar Mehsud sits well - both handsome young men with that extra aggressive instinct."


And "handsome" "with that extra aggressive instinct". Can't you just feel the love?

Next we get a taste of his "legendary" skills and his ability to perform "impossible" deeds.

"To demonstrate his skill with the vehicle, he drove like a man possessed, manoeuvring around razor sharp bends at impossible speeds.

He finished the demonstration by braking inches short of a several hundred foot drop.

While the rest of us sat in stunned silence, he just laughed chillingly and stuck the car in reverse to smoothly continue the journey. "


He's not talking about Jeremy Clarkson here but an Islamic terrorist.

Oh, the reporters name? Syed Shoaib Hasan

Extraordinary Rendition To Continue Under Obama

Where's the outrage?

Where's the ACLU and Human Rights Watch? Where's the Hitler comparisons? Oh yeah, it's Obama so it's cool.

Update from the New York Times.

"WASHINGTON — The Obama administration will continue the Bush administration’s practice of sending terrorism suspects to third countries for detention and interrogation, but pledges to closely monitor their treatment to ensure that they are not tortured, administration officials said Monday."


So much for hope and change. Boy, did Obama punk the left but good.

Taliban collapsing in Pakistan?

Let's hope so.

The CIA Report: What Does It Say?

Another Obama promise broken.

Human Rights Watch

Needs a housecleaning.

"From now on, every HRW report on Israel is going to be greeted with "you mean the Saudi-funded HRW," or "you mean the report written by the woman [HRW Middle East director Sarah Leah Whitson] who is a great admirer of Norman Finkelstein and lobbied Kofi Annan against Israel in the middle of the Second Intifada" or "you mean the report written by the guy [Stork] who supports the anti-Israel boycott movement and has been venting his hostility to Israel for almost forty years" or "you mean HRW, the organization that fails to take down from its website anti-Israel reports even when it has admitted they are inaccurate," and so on."

BBC - Checking out of 'Hotel America'

After 7 years of "painting" a false picture of America, Webb goes home. In his last report, Webb seems tortured and confused - sounds about right for a BBC reporter.

"More than 300 million people live here now, settlers from all over the world. From Ho Chi Minh City, from Timbuktu, from Vilnius, from Tehran, from every last corner of the earth, they have made America their home and they are still streaming in.

I feel crazy going back to the old world. My five-year-old daughter Clara, who is the proud owner of an American passport, agrees.

She says she intends to leave home, at around 12-years-old, and return to her native land. I do not blame her.

If you are willing to chance your arm, if you back yourself, if you want to live the life, America is still the place to be. Drive out on Route 17 and take a chance!"


Four years ago Justin had this to say about America.

"America is often portrayed as an ignorant, unsophisticated sort of place, full of bible bashers and ruled to a dangerous extent by trashy television, superstition and religious bigotry, a place lacking in respect for evidence based knowledge.

I know that is how it is portrayed because I have done my bit to paint that picture, and that picture is in many respects a true one. "


Four years on and Britain is not the place to be but America is. Perhaps Justin no longer believes his own propaganda.

Scotland and the Repudiation of America

Good read at Harry's Place.

Obama's "Death Book for Veterans"

Death panels already exist under Obama.

"Last year, bureaucrats at the VA's National Center for Ethics in Health Care advocated a 52-page end-of-life planning document, "Your Life, Your Choices." It was first published in 1997 and later promoted as the VA's preferred living will throughout its vast network of hospitals and nursing homes. After the Bush White House took a look at how this document was treating complex health and moral issues, the VA suspended its use. Unfortunately, under President Obama, the VA has now resuscitated "Your Life, Your Choices."

Obama being called a fascist now

on Air America!! That's right, on the rabid far left Air America. They left are realizing they were punked by Obama.

Liberals don't won't a serious health care debate

They just want you to shut up.

"I'll just make one observation: The liberal commentariat keeps telling us that we need to have a "serious debate" about reforming our dysfunctional health care system. Well, love 'em or hate 'em, Mackey came up with eight tangible ideas to do just that, and this is the reaction he gets."


Typical.

Obama's Stimulus hits a pothole

Mark Steyn has some thoughts.

"Meanwhile, in Brazil, India, China, Japan and much of Continental Europe the recession has ended. In the second quarter this year, both the French and German economies grew by 0.3 percent, while the U.S. economy shrank by 1 percent. How can that be? Unlike America, France and Germany had no government stimulus worth speaking of, the Germans declining to go the Obama route on the quaint grounds that they couldn't afford it. They did not invest in the critical signage-in-front-of-holes-in-the-road sector. And yet their recession has gone away. Of the world's biggest economies, only the U.S., Britain and Italy are still contracting. All three are big stimulators, though Gordon Brown and Silvio Berlusconi can't compete with Obama's $800 billion porkapalooza. The president has borrowed more money to spend to less effect than anybody on the planet."

Unmanned Drones

are deadly. Be sure and watch the video.

Here's a picture and more info on the drone.

Obama’s Team Is Lacking

in more ways than one.

"WASHINGTON — As President Obama tries to turn around a summer of setbacks, he finds himself still without most of his own team. Seven months into his presidency, fewer than half of his top appointees are in place advancing his agenda.

Of more than 500 senior policymaking positions requiring Senate confirmation, just 43 percent have been filled — a reflection of a White House that grew more cautious after several nominations blew up last spring, a Senate that is intensively investigating nominees and a legislative agenda that has consumed both."


They just blew up? That's New York Times speak for they hadn't paid their taxes. And these guys want to run a national health care system?

US boycott threat over Megrahi

No!, no, no. Don't do this folks. I'm an America living in Scotland and I can tell you, every single person I have talked to was against releasing him. Boycotting Britain or even just Scotland will punish the people not the government. Please don't do it. The government is to blame, not the people.

Obama's approval reaches all time low

More buyers remorse.

"The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 27% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -14. These figures mark the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President. The previous low of -12 was reached on July 30"

More troops needed for Afghanistan

It's Obama's war now. Where's the anti war crowd? Oh yeah, Obama's in charge now so the war isn't important.

Fox News ratings soar

The beat CNN and MSNBC combined.

Krauthammer's Take

from Thursday.

Civil war in the House?

Watching the Democrats implode is so delicious.

"A day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that health reform won’t get through the House without a public option, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Friday that the public option may have to go in order to get a bill passed. "


Do these people even talk to each other? Every day we get a different position from some Democrat leader. I love it, god help me, but I do so love it.

It's a shame though. The country is in deep financial crisis, we're fighting two wars and the war on terror (oops, what are they calling it today?) continues. The sliver lining is that the Democrats are in complete charge, owning both houses of Congress and the Presidency, and making a complete mess of everything. All of America and the world can now see how utterly unfit they are to govern.

Hope & Change Haven't Reached Pakistan Yet

Are the Democrats really this naive? Well, they got punked by Obama so I guess they are.

Obama’s Trust Problem

Writes Paul Krugman in the New York Times! Can you believe that?!

"On the issue of health care itself, the inspiring figure progressives thought they had elected comes across, far too often, as a dry technocrat who talks of “bending the curve” but has only recently begun to make the moral case for reform. Mr. Obama’s explanations of his plan have gotten clearer, but he still seems unable to settle on a simple, pithy formula; his speeches and op-eds still read as if they were written by a committee.

Meanwhile, on such fraught questions as torture and indefinite detention, the president has dismayed progressives with his reluctance to challenge or change Bush administration policy."


In fact Obama has kept most of them and expanded on some. The New York Times led the rabid left's attacks on Bush over them, but, now that their man Obama is president, they remain silent.

All of this leads to this moment of clarity for Krugman and the left.

"So there’s a growing sense among progressives that they have, as my colleague Frank Rich suggests, been punked."


Yes, yes you have and you deserve it for anointing Obama instead of doing your job and investigating him. What did the left expect? They elected the most far left and inexperienced Democrat in America who ran his campaign as a moderate. Didn't that ring alarm bells for you guys?

$2 trillion higher deficit projected

A Friday bombshell.

They like putting out bad news on a Friday in hopes no one notices. How can you not notice $2 Trillion dollars! More Obama epic fail.

Hitler Comparisons and Media Reporting

Hypocrites.

The left were fine with Hitler comparisons when Bush was president. Now that Obama is president, the left don't like them so much. The thing is though, I haven't seen any Obama - Hitler comparisons. There may be a few but I haven't seen them.

Mexico decriminalizes small-scale drug possession

A good first step but they need to do more. Likewise America for this to have the desired effect.

Ill Kennedy urges fast succession

The BBC reports.

As usual, it's what the BBC leaves out that is important.

"Under current law, if a senator dies or steps down, voters must chose a replacement in a special election held within five months.

But Mr Kennedy, analysts suggest, fears a lengthy gap could deny Democrats a crucial vote on the proposed health reform. "


What the BBC don't tell you is that Kennedy wrote the current law to prevent, a then Republican, Governor from immediately appointing a successor. Now the situation is reversed and Kennedy wants to change the rules to suit him.

ACORN official promises to testify

in vote fraud case.

"State investigators consider Edwards the mastermind of an illegal incentive program at the local ACORN office that, with the approval of Busefink and national ACORN officials, encouraged the collection of fraudulent voter registration forms during the 2008 campaign season."


Just another reason ACORN should be barred from census work.

Swine flu jumps species to turkeys

This sounds like bad news.

Obama down to 45% approval

My, how far the one has fallen.

Who's Crazy Now?

I don't know about crazy but the left are the biggest hypocrites ever.

ABC's Charles Gibson to Cindy Sheehan

Get lost.

Sheehan was the darling of the left when she protested against Bush. But now that she's protesting against Obama, they don't want to know her.

Obama: "'We are God's partners"

That's what Obama says.

This is the same Obama who was caught on tape disparaging Republicans for "clinging onto their guns and Bibles".

"A reader points out that President Obama's call with the rabbis today — as recorded in Rabbi Jack Moline's and other clerics' Twitter feeds — freights health care reform with a great deal of religious meaning, and veers into the blend of policy and faith that outraged liberals in the last administration."


That's because they are hypocrites.

More here.

"Bearing false witness? Breaking the 9th Commandment? So his opponents are sinners. I'm trying to imagine the separation-of-church-and-state freakout if George Bush had taken this approach to arguing for one of his policies."


Obama is playing the blame game. The Democrats own the White House and both houses of Congress. They don't need Republicans to pass anything. The blame sits squarely with the Democrats.

BBC's Webb leaves America

Thank God!

After spending much of his time painting a false picture of America, Webb strangely has this to say:

"Now back in the UK I find myself utterly at sea - I say hello to people I pass in the street. They lunge on, muttering insults. We'll get used to it. But we will never forget the kindness of America. In Swindon buying a car the other day (yes, life has changed) the conversation turned to a familiar theme but one that endlessly fascinates me - the relative peaceableness of the American life, guns and all. Too many Brits seriously think that America is violent. It isn't. Most America lives are free of violence and the threat of it in a way no life in Swindon can be. Why that's true is a subject all of its own (religion, gun ownership, moral fibre, space, social cohesiveness?) and one worthy of a future study. "


This is the same Webb who had this to say.

"America is often portrayed as an ignorant, unsophisticated sort of place, full of bible bashers and ruled to a dangerous extent by trashy television, superstition and religious bigotry, a place lacking in respect for evidence based knowledge.

I know that is how it is portrayed because I have done my bit to paint that picture, and that picture is in many respects a true one. "


I always chuckle at the "evidence based knowledge" jibe. This about the worlds only superpower and who put men on the moon many times.

That was four years ago. So what changed Webb's mind? He lived in America for years and now realizes that the BBC's anti American propaganda just isn't true. But now that Webb's back home at the BBC, it shouldn't be long before the BBC's poison works again.

Firms with Obama ties profit from health push

Do tell.

"WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's push for a national health care overhaul is providing a financial windfall in the election offseason to Democratic consulting firms that are closely connected to the president and two top advisers.

Coalitions of interest groups running at least $24 million in pro-overhaul ads hired GMMB, which worked for Obama's 2008 campaign and whose partners include a top Obama campaign strategist. They also hired AKPD Message and Media, which was founded by David Axelrod, a top adviser to Obama's campaign and now to the White House. AKPD did work for Obama's campaign, and Axelrod's son Michael and Obama's campaign manager David Plouffe work there. "

Talking heads bite Barack Obama

I have to be honest, I'm loving watching this train wreck.

Try as they might the left cannot blame any of this on the Republicans. The Democrats control both houses of Congress and the Presidency and can pass anything they want. They don't need the Republicans for anything except political cover. The Democrats own this mess, lock stock and barrel.

Polar bears thriving after unusually cool summer

Interesting.

"Canada is home to about two-thirds of the world's polar bears but scientists warn that populations are starting to dwindle because of thawing sea ice, over-hunting, industrial activity and increased toxins in the food chain."

Why is Obama drilling in Brazil?

Because Soros told him to. Obama is paying back Moveon.org.

BRITISH Muslim fanatics cheer body bags

So, how's that multicultural thing working out?

Hmmm, what is the government going to do? "We’ll ease up on Muslim fanatics." That's the ticket!

"LABOUR slammed the brakes on its war against violent extremism yesterday - amid fears it had upset Muslim voters.

Millions spent preventing Asian kids becoming terrorists will now be used to tackle right-wing racists in WHITE areas. "


But it's ok to upset the families of our fallen soldiers then?

Who's behind this?

"Community cohesion minister Shahid Malik admitted he was softening his stance because Muslims felt stigmatised. "

Is there really a boycott of Glenn Beck?

The left caught lying again. I'm shocked, shocked I tell you!

Democrats: "good war" not worth it

I'll keep saying it, the left's hypocrisy knows no bounds.

"Exit question: Any lefties care to enlighten us in the comments as to what the withdrawal “strategy” here is? No one believes the country is secure against the Taliban; no one believes either that the Taliban would deny sanctuary to Al Qaeda. If the war on terror is now a war on Al Qaeda specifically, why cede an entire country back to them to use as their base of operations by pulling out?"


Update. Obama on Afghanistan: "This Is a War of Necessity"

So, if 7 out of 10 Democrats say the war is not worth it, doesn't that put Obama out of step with his own party?

Obama's epic fail continues

We warned this would happen.

Demonize the Insurance companies

Having lost the health care reform debate on the merits of the issues, Obama is now going to demonize the insurance companies. Obama's attacks on average Americans who disagreed with him backfired. Now he needs a new scapegoat.

How is national health working?

It has its problems.

Will Bagram Be President Obama’s Guantanamo?

I doubt it. This is Obama we're talking about. You'd think that since the ACLU is on the case the left wing media would be all over this. But since Obama is president now, the left wing media is silent.

"In a stark contrast to President Obama’s promise of transparency, the Pentagon followed up in a July 28 letter by telling the ACLU that the Obama administration has basic information about the detainees – a 12-page list of individuals held at the Afghan camp as of June 22 -- but is not going to share it."


Another Obama promise broken? Say it ain't so!

Remember When "Kill Bush" Was Cool?

But Obama is a Democrat so ...

Hypocrisy blinds the left

But they don't care.

Cindy Sheehan hits 'hypocrisy' of Left

Amazing how clear things are when you take off the tinfoil hat.

"The "anti-war" "left" was used by the Democratic Party. I like to call it the "anti-Republican War" movement."


Which is why, despite two on going wars, the left are silent now Obama is president. Hypocrisy defines the left.

Greenpeace Admits Arctic Ice Exaggeration

Live, on air and on the far left BBC no less!

Here's another shocker.

"Although he admitted Greenpeace had released inaccurate but alarming information, Leipold defended the organization’s practice of “emotionalizing issues” in order to bring the public around to its way of thinking and alter public opinion. "


Do tell.

MSNBC hids racial identity of gunman

Now why would they do that? Follow the link to the photo and you'll see why.

Paedophile pensioner given Viagra

on the NHS - despite string of attacks on children.

It gets worse.

"A paedophile with a 30-year history of abusing children is being prescribed Viagra on the NHS - and there is nothing the authorities can do to stop him. "


Why does he keep getting out to attack more kids?

It gets even worse still.

"He has forced himself on a string of youngsters and his latest assault was on an 11-year-old girl last year. "


Last year!!

Yep, it gets even worse still.

"But when he was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court yesterday a judge chose not to send him to prison after being persuaded he 'wouldn't be able to cope' with a spell behind bars. "


No wonder he keeps abusing children. He knows he won't go to jail.

Every day Britain gets more screwed up.

Another Obama epic fail

Auto dealers abandon "cash for clunkers". The government is also hiring 11000 employees to handle the program.

The left would say creating 11000 new jobs is great but those are temporary government jobs which only increases our debt. Besides, if Obama can't run this program and can't do it without hiring more people to run it, how's Obamacare going to work? He says to pay for it he will cut waste and inefficiency. Cash for clunkers shows he can't do it.

Media upset by Obama-Hitler comparisons

The New York Times has a long article on the subject.

Where was the outrage when the left compared Bush to Hitler almost daily?

Why do Americans object to Obamacare?

Besides cutting Medicare here's one reason.

Islamic Help: Aiding Hamas

from Britain.

So, why isn't Britain doing more to stop funding of terrorists from Britain? Here's why.

"LABOUR slammed the brakes on its war against violent extremism yesterday - amid fears it had upset Muslim voters. "


Labour is putting votes ahead of Britain's security.

HT Harry's Place.

Dutch sack Muslim scholar

over Iran government ties.

He shouldn't have been hired in the first place.

Britain’s Move to Islam

continues.

Just add this to the growing list.

Cindy Sheehan heads to the Vineyard

Will the left wing media cover the story?

"This morning the anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan -- the woman who spent so much time leading well-publicized protests outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas -- announced that she will demonstrate next week at Martha's Vineyard, where President Obama will be vacationing."


The media were all over her protests at Bush's ranch but don't hold your breath that they will cover her now.

UK to ease up on Muslim fanatics

The country is in the best of hands. Sigh.

"LABOUR slammed the brakes on its war against violent extremism yesterday - amid fears it had upset Muslim voters.

Millions spent preventing Asian kids becoming terrorists will now be used to tackle right-wing racists in WHITE areas.

Community cohesion minister Shahid Malik admitted he was softening his stance because Muslims felt stigmatised. "


Well, he would, wouldn't he?

Remind me again, how many thousands of active terrorists cells did the security services say they were monitoring?

Danish Conservatives Call for Burqa Ban

Good for them!

It's not a religious symbol anyway.

The hypocrisy of the left

is astounding.

We are still fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, so, where's the anti war movement gone?

A black conservative gets beaten up by union thugs and the left are silent. They went nuts over Rodney King.

The word evil used to mean something to the left - not any more.

The BBC's Justin Webb on America

Clueless as ever. Remember folks, Webb is the BBC's North American editor. Webb brags openly about painting a false picture of America.

"America is often portrayed as an ignorant, unsophisticated sort of place, full of bible bashers and ruled to a dangerous extent by trashy television, superstition and religious bigotry, a place lacking in respect for evidence based knowledge.

I know that is how it is portrayed because I have done my bit to paint that picture, and that picture is in many respects a true one."


Gee Webb, tell us what you really think of America.

In his latest piece, Webb moans that if only the rest of America could be like San Francisco.

"And yet I feel torn by the European familiarity of San Francisco - its rationalism and secularism and public transportism. Being European in outlook is not - it seems to me - the future for America. "


Thank god for that! Webb fails to mention that the European Court of Human Rights is the reason convicted al Qaeda terrorists cannot be deported from Britain. As Europe becomes more and more Islamic, Webb might want to dwell on that "European familiarity".

This is priceless from Webb.

"So many European tourists here: poor things, they have travelled ten hours to come to the only part of America that isn't American. They'll go home knowing nothing."


See what I mean about clueless? I'm sure it's news to San Franciscans that are no longer Americans.

Here are a few things to ponder Justin. California just voted down gay marriage; how so un European! Since Obama and most Americans oppose gay marriage, I'd say they're in line with the rest of America.

Then there's the Governor. The Governor is proof that anyone can come to America and live the American dream - Arnold Swartzenager epitomizes that.

Of course Webb was using only one town to make his point. He had to in order to paint his picture.

Obama on Afghanistan

"This Is a War of Necessity"

Where's the anti war crowd that called Bush, Hitler? Oh, right, this is Obama's war now so, it's cool.

Why must we bow to the intolerant ways of Islam?

Because, to the left, Muslims are victims and must be protected at all costs.

This should set your blood to boil.

"Sharia courts in Britain have already judged that a man may have up to four wives at any one time;..."


This despite the fact that polygamy is illegal in Britain. There's more:

"For example, polygamy is illegal under British law. But while condemning it in theory, the Government endorses it in practice: each woman in such a relationship is entitled to the same benefits as the wife
in a monogamous married couple."


Got that? Benefits for all four wives! Make you mad? I'll make you madder. The other three wives don't even have to live in Britain!

Thousands Quit AARP Over Health Reform

60,000! Another Obama epic fail.

Obama swipe “a kick to the chest”

To be fair the Postal service does have its problems and is losing billions every year. Ironic that Obama used it as an example of how Obama care would work - or not.

White House says it did send spam

If Karl Rove had done this America's left wing media would have gone into rabid attack dog mode. But, since it's Obama's man, it's cool.

Un-American: Pelosi's hypocrisy

knows no bounds.

Obama flip flops on signing statements

I've lost count of the number of Obama flip flops.

"Despite blasting the unprecedented use of such signing statements by former President George W. Bush last year while on the campaign trail, Obama has used the power himself so far on five bills, in which he claims authority to bypass the provisions of measures he signs into law, The New York Times reported Sunday."


But hey, it's cool.

"Administration officials told the Times Obama's signing statements are based on traditional interpretations of the Constitution, reflecting routine presidential reservations."


So were Bush's then. The left are such hypocrites.

Obama's Afghanistan policy

What is it?

The US is still fighting two wars. Where has the anti-war movement gone? Now that their man is in the White House, the silence is deafening.

The wisdom of Bill Maher

This is pretty much the left's position for anyone who disagrees with them. You're stupid.

Dissent used to be patriotic

Not anymore. Not since the Democrats got into office.

Tough material, 1 atom thick

That's graphene.

"It is the thinnest known material in the universe and the strongest ever measured," Andre Geim, a physicist at the University of Manchester, England, wrote in the June 19 issue of the journal Science."

A fifth of EU will be Muslim by 2050

The Telegraph reports.

"Britain, Spain and Holland will have an even higher proportion of Muslims in a shorter amount of time, an investigation by The Telegraph shows. "


Mark Steyn notes countries don't have to have Muslim populations over 50% for them to become Muslim countries. And, he notes why this matters.

"So what's the point at which a society starts to become Muslim in its socio-political character? My book quotes the 2005 Freedom House rankings: Of the 46 Muslim majority nations only three were ranked as free. But of the 16 nations in which Muslims form between 20 and 50 per cent of the population, only another three were ranked as free: Benin, Serbia & Montenegro (as it was then), and Suriname."
