The Party of Repeal
By Arnold Ahlert

In 1994, Republicans seized control of Congress, largely due to their Contract With America pledge which resonated with the electorate. The same concept will work for the 2010 election — if Republicans have the guts and the foresight to run with it. Note I used the word "concept," because this time their pledge should center around a completely different set of promises. To begin with, Republicans must understand that Democrats and their media lapdogs are unwittingly doing them a huge favor by referring to them as obstructionists for refusing to abide Democrats' intention to socialize America. They should take that obstructionist label and double down on it: Republicans must become the "Party of Repeal."

Testosterone Shortage Strikes GOP
by Paul R. Hollrah
Medical dictionaries tell us that testosterone is an anabolic steroid that is produced in the bodies of both males and females. And while females are, from a behavioral standpoint, more sensitive to the hormone than males, an adult human male produces, on average, about forty to sixty times more testosterone than an adult human female. In the human male, testosterone plays a key role in the development of uniquely male physical characteristics... male sex organs, facial and body hair, muscle mass, and vocal quality. It is also thought to be a major contributing factor in the level of competitiveness and aggressiveness among males.

Betting America’s Future On The “Healthcare” Circus
By: Christopher G. Adamo

At this writing, the prospect of America’s descent into the abyss of socialism hinges on an impasse between Senator Joe Lieberman (I.-CT) and Barack Obama’s replacement Senator Roland Burris (D.-IL). The irreconcilable difference between the two pertains to the inclusion in Obamacare of a “public option,” (the latest euphemism for an eventual total government takeover of the entire American medical industry).

Just Because: Analyzing the Psychology of Palin-Hate
By Paul A. Ibbetson
“I hate Sarah Palin, I… I just hate her!” That is not an uncommon outburst from some when it comes to feelings about one of the most polarizing figures (in “liberal” minds) in the political arena. As I write about the political happenings of the former governor of Alaska, I am continually amazed at both reader responses and callers to my radio program, Conscience of Kansas, when it comes to the level of hatred that Palin generates from some in the public. So, who are the real Palin-haters?

The Time Has Come
Mark Alexander
The 2008 presidential election was much more than a referendum on the two candidates; it was a referendum on the ability of a majority of Americans voters to discern between one candidate who possessed the character and integrity of a statesman, and one who did not. A year ago, a majority of our countrymen were hoodwinked into electing a charlatan with dubious credentials to the highest constitutional office in the land. Since then, millions of Americans who had become complacent about the Leftist threat to our liberty have begun to realize that our Constitution is now suffering an unprecedented assault.

At This Point It's About Defining the “Win”
by Frank Salvato
Does anyone remember back to when the current healthcare reform initiative began? What were the goals? What were the reasons for the subject even being broached? Progressives and Democrats insisted that the healthcare system was broken because there were millions of people (figures varied, but averaged around 37 million) who were uninsured and that those who had health insurance were subject to continuously rising insurance premiums and diminished coverage.

Obama Won't Support Killing Taliban in Pakistani Cities
By Rusty at The Jawa Report
I'm enraged. Doing nothing is not an option. Yes the Taliban are in a suburb of Quetta. We've known this for years. And since it's public knowledge now I'll reveal that I personally tracked at least one prominent member of the Taliban to Quetta some years back. The results of that info? Precisely jack and squat. What use is good intel if it can't or won't be acted upon? And it's not just Obama's refusal to bomb Taliban headquarters in Quetta. There might be a strategic argument against that. But you'll recall that his administration also pulled the plug on targeted assassinations.

‘Excuse Me...Can You Help Me Out with Some Change?'
by Nancy Salvato

Every evening on my way to Union Station, the same set of street hustlers are hanging about, soliciting for a handout. Some line the sidewalk, perched on the foldable camping chairs one would expect to see toted by soccer moms en route to childrens' organized sporting events, not associated with placards that read homeless or jobless. Others play instruments; one man strategically situated on the bridge playing plastic buckets for drums, another accompanies himself with some kind of Karaoke machine.


American Liberty v. Obama's Social Engineering
By Frank Salvato
After the General Election of 2008 I made a conscious effort to give President Obama a chance. I wanted to give him an opportunity to be true to his word; to prove that he was committed to governing from the center. I also wanted to demonstrate that I was not of the same ilk as the Bush-hating, “he stole the election,” fact-ignoring Progressive malcontents that served to divide the country over the eight years of the Bush Administration. But now, a year after the election, and as we approach a full year of the Obama Administration, it has become abundantly clear that Mr. Obama has abandoned almost all of his campaign promises (but for his commitments to the SEIU) and is governing from the far Left. He has instituted a campaign of social engineering that can only be described as a direct threat to liberty.

For the General Welfare, or an Encroachment on Rights?
by Nancy Salvato
Taking Metra usually affords me a solid 20 minutes to read on my Kindle during my commute home and I relish that pause from responsibility to research many of the topics on which I write. Tonight's train ride, however, provided an unanticipated diversion during which I mused on a variety of scenarios that left me pondering. What percentage of the population would place such scenarios under the category of an encroachment on one's individual rights in the guise of the public interest or visa-versa?

Rising Leaders In The Republican Party
By: Christopher G. Adamo
With each passing day, the cornerstones of American greatness are being attacked and dismantled by the left, whose goal is clearly their eventual eradication and replacement by a liberal “new order.” As the nation sinks further under the oppression of the Obama/Reid/Pelosi offensive, the people of the Heartland are desperately looking for leaders who will arise to carry the torch of conservatism and traditional values.

Honduras Snubs Obama
by Paul R. Hollrah
In a December 4 editorial titled “The Honduras Conundrum,” the New York Times tries its best to cover Barack Obama’s backside in his ham-handed attempt to transform Honduras from a pro-American democracy to a Castro or Chavez style socialist dictatorship. To review, Manuel Zelaya was elected to a four year term as president of Honduras in November 2005 and, under the one-term limit imposed by the Honduran Constitution, was scheduled to leave office in January 2010. However, seeing himself as the newest member of an exclusive club of Latin American socialist dictators…

Give Stoopid a Chance
By Alan Burkhart
Throughout our history, we have seen the office of the President of the United States occupied by some of the most brilliant and well-educated people on the planet. They come from a variety of backgrounds – some from wealthy political dynasties like the Kennedy family, others from relative poverty like Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Most had a college education. Some, like Zachary Taylor did not. Many also served with honor in the US military.

The Death of Big Environment: Assessing Loss and Gain
By Paul A. Ibbetson
For all who have challenged the notion that man is single-handedly destroying the planet with everything from America’s industrial system to your shiny SUV– all the way down to your uncle’s favorite cow “Gertrude” on the farm, take a moment to lower your shields as the opposition is about to be sent on the run. As reported by Jon Lott on FOXNews.com, validated e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in England show an extended conspiracy by scientists to hide facts that would challenge man-made global warming and to purposely skew data presented to the public.


Climate Change: Hoax of the Century
Joseph A Olson
This article dates back to April of this year, but the information it contains adds more facts to what I was able to cover in my article at the top of the site, and is even more relevant today now with the Climategate scandal: Carbon dioxide, a benign, life giving molecule has been miscast by a world wide political movement to be an environmental hazard in what will soon be discovered to be the hoax of the century. This molecule, CO2 is vital to all life on earth.

Lawrence Solomon: Wikipedia’s climate doctor
National Post
The Climategate Emails describe how a small band of climatologists cooked the books to make the last century seem dangerously warm. The emails also describe how the band plotted to rewrite history as well as science, particularly by eliminating the Medieval Warm Period, a 400 year period that began around 1000 AD. One person in the nine-member Realclimate.org team — U.K. scientist and Green Party activist William Connolley — would take on particularly crucial duties. Connolley took control of all things climate in the most used information source the world has ever known – Wikipedia.

Inconvenient truth for Al Gore as his North Pole sums don't add up
TimesOnline
There are many kinds of truth. Al Gore was poleaxed by an inconvenient one yesterday. Mr Gore, speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, stated the latest research showed that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years. In his speech, Mr Gore told the conference: “These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 per cent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.” However, the climatologist whose work Mr Gore was relying upon dropped the former Vice-President in the water with an icy blast. “It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at,” Dr Maslowski said. “I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this.”

Be Very, Very , Afraid of Obama's Latest Big Brother Plan
HyScience.com

Bradley Blakeman explains Obama's latest 'Big Brother' step in his and the Democrats in Congress' overall plan to control 'every aspect of our lives.' The Obama administration seeks to empower a very powerful government agency you have probably never heard of with new and expanded powers that will have a direct consequence on every American if they are successful in their efforts to implement national health care reforms. The Obama White House is also drunk with power and is seeking to expand the powers of government agencies to oversee and act out to affect Americans in ways that this country has never seen before.

Islamic mosque built at 9/11 Ground Zero
WorldNetDaily
A new Islamic mosque will open its doors just steps from Ground Zero where Muslim terrorists murdered 2,751 people in the name of Allah on Sept. 11, 2001 – and its leading imam, who conducts sensitivity training sessions for the FBI, has reportedly blamed Christians for starting mass attacks on civilians. The five-story building at Park Place, just two blocks north of the former World Trade Center site, was the site of a Burlington Coat Factory. But a plane's landing-gear assembly crashed through the roof on the day 19 Muslim terrorists hijacked the airliners and flew them into the Twin Towers in 2001

20 senators demand probe of health-care vote 'threat'
WorldNetDaily
Twenty senators are demanding an investigation into reports the Obama administration threatened to close Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska if that state's Democratic senator, Ben Nelson, didn't join other Democrats in voting for health-care reform. The group of 20, all Republicans, today called for a hearing in a letter to Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., and the committee's top Republican Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

Obama: You Stupid Bankers Ruined The Economy With Risky Loans, Now I Expect You To Grow Economy With More Risky Loans
Ace of Spades HQ
I'm not a big fan of the "run government like a business" school of thought. They are too different in structure and purpose to be compared. Still, it would be kind of nice if the President of the United States of America had a passing familiarity with free market economics. Last night on 60 Minutes (this is what, His 3rd interview in a year with them? Does Steve Kroft have Obama's 'real' birth certificate or something?), Obama lashed out at bankers ahead of a meeting with them today. See Bashing the Banks in Investors Business Daily.

Constitution ‘Charges Congress With the Health’ of the People
CNSnews.com
Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) told CNSNews.com that Congress has the authority to force individual Americans to buy health insurance because the U.S. Constitution “charges Congress with the health and well-being of the people.” The words “health” and “well-being” do not appear anywhere in the Constitution. “Well, I just think the Constitution charges Congress with the health and well-being of the people,” Lincoln said. Obviously, Lincoln, and many others in Congress, are not familiar with the Constitution. How did we elect such people?

Sen. Lincoln: Congress Can Force Americans to Buy Health Insurance Because Barack Obama's speech disappoints and fuels frustration at Copenhagen
Guardian.co.uk
Barack Obama stepped into the chaotic final hours of the Copenhagen summit today saying he was convinced the world could act "boldly and decisively" on climate change. But his speech offered no indication America was ready to embrace bold measures, after world leaders had been working desperately against the clock to try to paper over an agreement to prevent two years of wasted effort — and a 10-day meeting — from ending in total collapse.

Offshore oil drilling gets go-ahead in Alaska's Arctic
McClatchy

The Interior Department today gave the go-ahead for Shell Oil to begin drilling three exploratory wells in the Chukchi Sea, a move that opens the door for production in a new region of the Arctic. The Interior Department's Minerals Management Service signed off on a plan that allows Shell to drill up to three exploration wells during the July-to-October open-water drilling season. The company's proposal calls for using one drill ship, one ice management vessel, an ice-class anchor-handling vessel and oil spill response vessels, the Interior Department said. The closest proposed drill site is more than 60 miles to shore and about 80 miles from Wainwright.

How to Stop Cap-and-Trade
FrontPage Magazine
The Obama administration is trying to use the threat of Environmental Protection Agency regulation [1] of greenhouse gases under its Clean Air Act authority as a means to force Congress into passing some form of a cap-and-trade bill. It’s a subtle strategy, and many Republicans have risen to the bait, worried about what would happen if the EPA tries to implement a so-called “command and control” system instead of a market-friendly solution. But the GOP shouldn’t be concerned. In fact, they should call the administration’s bluff.

Congress Travels More, Public Pays
Wall Street Journal
EDINBURGH -- The expenses racked up by U.S. lawmakers traveling here for a conference last month included one for the "control room." Besides rooms for sleeping, the 12 members of the House of Representatives rented their hotel's fireplace-equipped presidential suite and two adjacent rooms. The hotel cleared out the beds and in their place set up a bar, a snack room and office space. The three extra rooms -- stocked with liquor, Coors beer, chips and salsa, sandwiches, Mrs. Fields cookies and York Peppermint Patties -- cost a total of about $1,500 a night. They were rented for five nights.


CO2 Fairytales in Global Warming
By Gregory Young - an American Thinker
If one were to script a Global Warming scam one would have to be a knot-head or brain-dead to pick Carbon Dioxide (CO2) as the lead factor. Of course we know now that CO2 was rolled out as the "poster child" nemesis against the environment.  It was meant to get us hysterical enough to plead with our politicians to exact a tax on our carbon footprints so that we can save the planet earth.  But it's turning out that the CO2 "poster child" has significant problems.  Despite the fact that Carbon is a part of the CO2 molecule, the atmospheric science of CO2 directly contradicts what the AGW alarmists are trying to sell us.  Promoting CO2 as the environmental monkey on our back is absolutely ludicrous. CO2 is friend to all life, not a foe.

Is the Constitution Just a Grand Suggestion?
By Frank Salvato
Listening to the John & Cisco morning radio program here on Chicago's WIND AM 560 this morning, I was suddenly stopped dead in my tracks. One of the hosts, John Howell, asked Chicago Tribune editorialists Clarence Page about a contentious issue; whether candidates for the office of President of the United States of America should have to present proof of citizenship before being allowed to vie for the office. Mr. Page's answer was not only a slight to the Constitution; it placed him firmly in the camp of the constitutionally illiterate.

Nearly Skyjacked, or Just a Dry Run?
By Email from Tedd Petruna
One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On Tuesday, November the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have seen a blurb where a AirTran flight was cancelled from Atlanta to Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before takeoff. It was on Fox. This was NOT what happened. I was in 1st class coming home. 11 Muslim men got on the plane in full attire. 2 sat in 1st class and the rest peppered themselves throughout the plane all the way to the back.

Chuck de Caro’s War
by Paul R. Hollrah
Klaus von Clausewitz, the famed Prussian military historian and theorist, defined war as being “an extension of politics, using violence to constrain the enemy to accomplish our will.” While that may have been a perfectly sound concept in Clausewitz’s time, the early 19th century, the destructive power of modern weaponry tells us that things are no longer that simple or clear cut. Something new has been added. Never in his wildest dreams could Clausewitz ever have imagined global real-time television and the influence that it has in world affairs.

It’s Called Morale Mr. President - You Are Supposed to Provide It
Heritage.org
Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower once said: “Morale is the greatest single factor in successful wars.” So why did President Obama choose last night’s address to further disintegrate what morale is left in the fight in Iraq? Choosing the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York was on first blush a wise decision. These are the young men and women who will put their lives on the line, or may have already, to defend the President’s decisions. This is not the “enemy camp” as MSNBC’s Chris Matthews described them. And these are not merely props in a photo op as President Obama poorly joked while at Osan Air Base in South Korea earlier in November.

Setting up our Military to Fail
Ralph Peters, NY Post.com

Just plain nuts: That's the only possible characterization for last night's presidential declaration of surrender in advance of a renewed campaign in Afghanistan. President Obama will send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan -- but he'll "begin the transfer of our forces out of Afghanistan in July of 2011." Then why send them? If you're going to tell the Taliban to be patient because we're leaving, what's the point in upping the blood ante? For what will come down to a single year by the time the troops hit the ground? Does Obama really expect to achieve in one year what we haven't been able to do in more than eight?

A Few Buttons Missing Part II
George Haddad, NMJ.us
I always thought that I had a permanent case of Attention Deficit Syndrome...until now. Once this man became president, he got my full attention and I haven’t been able to get rid of him since. We can now note that amongst his many self-acclaimed attributes is that of a therapist. He has solved my self-induced affliction. I now know -- and we all should know by this time -- that our culture, our way of life, our idealistic ideologies are being attacked as never before in our history. Honor, ethics, logic, morality and common sense no longer permeate the sensibilities of those governing our nation. It is past time for he and his group of treasonous thugs to get our full attention.

A Worthless Speech From A Worthless President
By Howard Galganov
This insult to the Presidency of the United States of America and pretender to the title of Commander In Chief and World Leader has REALLY pissed-me-off. Let me tell you something about the country of my birth (Canada), which many Americans might not know. Canada has been fighting in Afghanistan literally from DAY ONE. We are a small country in population with only 33 million people, about 10% of the American population. But, on a per-capita basis, we have a significant number of troops in-theatre at slightly less than 3000.

“Hope and Change” Through Lies
By: Christopher G. Adamo
Outrage over the suppressed data refuting “global warming” at the East Anglia Institute in England, now spans the world. Though as a result of a liberal media “blackout,” news of the event currently remains primarily confined among the intellectually honest participants in the climate debate. Nevertheless, with each passing day, ever increasing numbers of common citizens are realizing that every aspect of their lives, from the nature of the vehicles they own to the type of lighting that will be “allowed” them by their beneficent government, is being dictated by a hoax bearing no more substance than the “Bermuda Triangle.”

The Path to Victory
By Paul A. Ibbetson
What do we do now? That is the question that is building up like a tidal wave from a nation that finds itself at the precipice of national self destruction. The nation is slowly coming out of a deep, fitful, medicated sleep of apathy, brought about in part by the public’s ingestion of the socialistic narcotic of Barack Obama’s “yes, we can” philosophy, with all its negative side effects. I have pondered what might have been the thoughts of those sleeping aboard the fated Titanic as it began its descent to the ocean’s floor. Think about waking up from a sound sleep to feel cold water rapidly rising around you and not know why it was happening or what to do next.

The Road to Recovery Begins with the End of Obamacare
by Conn Carroll - Heritage Foundation
When President Barack Obama was trying to sell his $787 billion economic stimulus plan to the American people, there was no louder cheerleader for the plan than Mark Zandi of Moody’s Economy.com. Zandi confidently produced scientific tables purporting to prove that for every $1 the Obama administration gave to states, GDP would grow by exactly $1.36. Zandi later produced an analysis claiming that Obama’s stimulus would create 2.2 million jobs. But as millions of Americans now know all too well, Zandi was very, very wrong.


Cloward-Piven Government
By James Simpson
It is time to cast aside all remaining doubt. President Obama is not trying to lead America forward to recovery, prosperity and strength. Quite the opposite, in fact. In September of last year, American Thinker published my article, Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis. Part of a series, it connected then-presidential candidate Barack Obama to individuals and organizations practicing a malevolent strategy for destroying our economy and our system of government. Since then, the story of that strategy has found its way across the blogosphere, onto the airwaves of radio stations across the country, the Glenn Beck television show, Bill O'Reilly, and now Mark Levin.

By J.R. Dunn
The debate on environmentalism -- specifically as regards the environmental movement itself -- has been marked by confusion since the beginning. Criticism of environmentalist thinking tends to confuse means with goals. Environmentalist reforms, however they are presented and whatever they may involve, are simply means of pushing forward the Green agenda. As for the goals inherent in that agenda...they are something else entirely.

by Alan Caruba
I never cease to marvel at the environmental alarmists who create one “crisis” after another using wretchedly bad “science” to support their scams. On Tuesday, November 24th, the Global Footprint Network is going to “release new data on the Ecological Footprint of 100 nations and humanity as a whole, and the current ledgers are sobering.” Well, of course, they’re sobering. Everything the Greens announce is sobering because, as you well know, the oceans are rising, the glaciers and polar caps are melting, we’re running out of oil, every animal on Earth is endangered, incandescent light bulbs and global warming will destroy all life on Earth, yada, yada, yada.

By Timothy N. Baldwin, JD.
Let us assume for the moment that it became revealed that Barak Obama was not a natural born citizen of the United States, proving that he was ineligible to be President of the United States. Ok, now what? Would Obama be removed from office? Perhaps. Then what? Joseph Biden would be our next President. Ok, then what? Would the United States be freer? Would the States and the people regain their sovereignty stolen by the federal government? Would America’s form of government revert back to its original nature and character of 1787?

by Paul R. Hollrah
As a measure of how far Islam has come in its stated goal of subjugating and/or destroying the Christian world, consider what Winston Churchill wrote in The River War (First Edition, Vol. II). If Churchill were alive today he would be horrified to see that Christianity has not been “sheltered in the strong arms of science,” as he predicted, and that the civilization of modern Europe has all but fallen to the forces of Islam. If he could see the streets of London, Liverpool, and Manchester today, teeming with hordes of Muslims, the unintended consequence of the British colonial era, and if he could see the extent to which Muslim populations on the European mainland are within striking distance of having effective political majorities, he would see it all as an act of war and take steps to counter it.

By Geert Wilders
'In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe ?'
Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the Netherlands , at the Four Seasons, New York , introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem .
Dear friends, Thank you very much for inviting me. I come to America with a mission.  All is not well in the old world.  There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic.  We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe.  This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West.  The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.

In a Democratic fundraising speech in Iowa over the weekend, Vice President Joe Biden told party loyalists that opponents of the Obama administration's agenda "should be worried about us, for we are their worst nightmare." Duh. Finally we can agree on something, Joe. Even the liberal New York Times reports that at the current level of federal spending, the annual interest on the national debt will exceed $700 billion by 2019 -- compared with $202 billion this year. Some forecasters predict it will be much higher. This additional half-trillion dollars a year in interest is more than our current combined expenditures on education, energy, homeland security and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Little gems from the Health Care Bill
by Someone who Read it
• Page 16: States that if you have insurance at the time of the bill becoming law and change, you will be required to take a similar plan. If that is not available, you will be required to take the gov option!
• Page 22: Mandates audits of all employers that self-insure!
• Page 29: Admission: your health care will be rationed!
• Page 30: A government committee will decide what treatments and benefits you get (and, unlike an insurer, there will be no appeals process)...

Obama's 'Cardiff Giant'
by Monty Pelerin
The Cardiff Giant, known as "America's Greatest Hoax," has new competition for the title -- Global Warming. Recent revelations of what appear to be doctored data, corrupted scientists and pressured peer reviews have produced terms such as "Climategate," "Climaqquidick," and similar pejoratives. Describing the events of the past week, Senator Jim Inhofe, a consistent critic of the science said: "Ninety-five percent of the nails were in the coffin prior to this week. Now they are all in."

The Turkey That Is Obamanomics
by Nancy Salvato

Thanksgiving progressed in somewhat the usual manner. As the afternoon passed into early evening, sleeping in; savoring our coffee; reading the news; putzing around on the computer; and at least one of us (me) working out in anticipation of moderating the inevitable consequences of splurging on an inordinate amount of really good food, turned to picking up the pace in preparation for Thanksgiving dinner with family. In contrast to our lethargic morning agenda we rushed to prepare.

by The No Bull Newsletter
I have been having a nagging intuition lately that something is not quite right about Barack Obama. I am not suggesting there is something wrong with the man, per se. Nor am I talking about the crazy, even dangerous, policies coming out of the White House. No, lately, I have been wondering if Barack Obama is, in fact, the person who is actually functioning as President of the United States. I mean, there's no doubt that he fills the position of POTUS but is he really the one in command? The man actually seems lost at times. He seems to be reacting to ideas about which he does not really have a clue.

The attorney general's Senate testimony this week did nothing to reassure the families of 9/11's victims.
by David Beamer
On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee met to question Attorney General Eric Holder about his decision to prosecute Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others in criminal courts rather than military tribunals. As the father of Todd Beamer, who died on United Airlines Flight 93, I was able to attend that hearing. What transpired caused me great concern and shook my confidence in our current administration.


The BIGGEST LIE Yet
by By Mark Alexander
Sometimes the biggest lies come under cover of a truth. Such was the case this week, when Barack Hussein Obama proffered this observation about deficits: "I think it is important, though, to recognize if we keep on adding to the debt, even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point, people could lose confidence in the U.S. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double-dip recession." "Keep on adding to the debt"? From this, one might conclude that Obama has never suggested such a thing, and is truly concerned about deficits.

Palin, Conservatism, And The Disconnected GOP
by Christopher G. Adamo
For nearly two decades now, and particularly in the wake of the 2000 presidential election debacle, Democrats have been pursuing a diabolically simple political strategy. In short, they moved hard-left, knowing how reflexively the “mainstream” Republican response would be to follow them. But of course the GOP would pathetically claim that, by doing so to a lesser degree than the Democrats, it would somehow retain the mantle of “conservatism.”

An Abridgement of Constitutional Rights
by Nancy Salvato
The objectives for the United States Constitution are outlined in its preamble. Read it putting emphasis on the action verbs. All the objectives for the Constitution were chosen carefully and reflect the concerns which surfaced around The Articles of Confederation, this country's first Constitution. Read this again, but with a renewed emphasis on certain elements. This exercise, done in a variety of ways, can be quite useful in analyzing the document. Officials elected to serve in the federal government should read these words carefully, meditate on them, and think about whether their actions in the name of “we the people” are aligned to these objectives.

Have Democrats Been Marginalized Within Their Own Party?
by Frank Salvato
We have heard a lot over the past year or so about how President John F. Kennedy wouldn't be able to garner his political party's nomination for the presidency in today's Democrat Party. An examination of his political platform and the principles he embraced would today place him on the right side of the aisle. So, why is it that in just under fifty years the political ideology of the most revered Democrat to hold office in modern times is shunned by the party he served? It's because his party – the Democrat Party – isn't the party of Democrats any longer.

Burning Down the Straw Man
by Paul A. Ibbetson
As has been the case for many years, and especially most recently, the charge is that conservatives are falsely railing against a straw man in their observations and accusations leveled against the activities of liberals, and the Obama administration. Before I address this situation directly, let’s take a moment to look at what is meant by the term “straw man.” The concept of the “straw man” is the observation of the deceptive capability of humankind. When an individual wants to divert attention from a true issue, a false or irrelevant topic is created and attacked, and by doing so, advantage (if not victory) is achieved through such an argument.

Giving Thanks
by Jeff Lukens
Thanksgiving is a chance to gather with loved ones and share in a time-honored American tradition. For some, it is an excuse to stuff themselves with turkey and football. For others, it is a special time of "giving thanks" for blessings in their lives. One may ask, "thanks to whom?" Well, thanks to God, of course. Never before has the question been difficult to answer. Perhaps we should consider that America's blessings of prosperity, freedom, justice, peace and opportunity. They are gifts from a mighty and gracious God. These days, however, the preeminence of God may look more like a matter of opinion.

Shape Up or Ship Out
by Harold B. Estes
This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president. So here goes. I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish. I can't figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like: "We're no longer a Christian nation" " America is arrogant"...


Obama is NOT Eligible
by Paul R. Hollrah
President James A. Garfield once said, “I love agitation and investigation and glory in defending unpopular truth against popular error.” If Garfield were alive today he would glory in defending an unpopular truth… which is that Barack Hussein Obama is ineligible to serve as President of the United States… against popular error… which is the incomprehensible claim of sunshine patriots that it makes no difference whether or not Obama meets the “natural born” standard required under the U.S. Constitution.

Uniting the American Right
USA Freedom Force Extends Pledge Period

by JB Williams
On October 19, 2009 I released an idea in a column titled Time for the Tea Party to become Tangible and that message resonated with thousands of American patriots. Reader support for the idea was astounding and three columns later, we had assembled a team to test launch the idea, gauging reach and level of support for the concept. For the last week or so, we have been gauging support at a pre-launch pledge site www.FreedomForce.us and the results are very telling. We established a pledge goal of $10 million and a deadline of November 11, 2009.

Confronting the Spin on the Fort Hood Massacre
by Frank Salvato
It is sad and disturbing commentary on the state of American culture when the facts surrounding an event, such as the slaughter that took place at Fort Hood, can not only be manipulated to facilitate a political ideology but blatantly ignored in the pursuit of a political agenda. In the face of the most potent enemy the United States and the free world has ever know – aggressive and violent radical Islam – our leaders and members of the mainstream media are doing just that; manipulating the truth to facilitate an agenda, and we are all in danger because of it.

Lessons Learned From New York District 23
by Christopher G. Adamo
Is it possible for Republicans to make significant political headway in the 2010 mid-term elections, and thereby put the brakes on the Obama/Reid/Pelosi program of dismantling the greatness of America? Even a cursory examination of last week’s off-year elections in Virginia and New Jersey render a resounding “yes.” However, the special congressional election in New York district 23 adds the sobering reminder that the GOP can certainly blow this opportunity if it resorts to its past pathetic pattern of dithering and posturing.

The Pot and the Kettle
by Paul R. Hollrah
Scene: The Presidential Palace, Kabul, Afghanistan, Monday, November 1, 2009 (President Hamid Karzai is seated lotus-style on his rug. The red telephone rings. Karzai frowns and picks up the receiver.) Karzai: Hello, Mr. President. How is everything in Washington? Obama: Everything’s fine, Hamid. I just wanted to call to congratulate you on your reelection victory. Believe me, I know how comforting it is to run unopposed. You may not know this but that’s how I won my first race for the state senate in Illinois. I just had all of my primary opponents kicked off the ballot on technicalities. They didn’t know what hit ‘em. Karzai: Very good, Mr. President. You are a man after my own heart.


by Ralph Peters
On Thursday afternoon, a radicalized Muslim US Army officer shouting "Allahu Akbar!" committed the worst act of terror on American soil since 9/11. And no one wants to call it an act of terror or associate it with Islam. What cowards we are. Political correctness killed those patriotic Americans at Ft. Hood as surely as the Islamist gunman did. And the media treat it like a case of non-denominational shoplifting. This was a terrorist act. When an extremist plans and executes a murderous plot against our unarmed soldiers to protest our efforts to counter Islamist fanatics, it’s an act of terror. Period.

Muslims in 21st Century America: Violent Clashing Cultures
Frosty Wooldridge
Muslim U.S. Army Major Nadal Malik Hasan at Fort Hood, Texas. blasted away at 42 military personnel and civilians as they stood defenseless in line awaiting deployment processing for the Middle East. His condition stands a warning and a metaphor for the United States of America as it places itself in critical danger by importing millions from incompatible cultures and languages into America at breakneck speed. It reminds me of students in a chemistry class pouring unknown chemicals into a beaker and hoping it doesn’t boil over or blow up.

The People WANT to Unite! But can they?
by JB Williams
The international “left” led by the Chicago Cabal currently engaged in a full frontal assault on all American principles, values and individual rights, fear only one thing.... The U.S. Charters of Freedom! That’s because the Charters of Freedom are the ONLY thing standing in the way of total Global Socialist control of the Unites States of America... They fear only one group... The American patriots who are willing to stand and fight for the Charters of Freedom!

Fort Hood Account from JAG Officer Onsite
by Unidentified Fort Hood JAG Officer
Since I don't know when I'll sleep (it's 4 am now) I'll write what happened (the abbreviated version.....the long one is already part of the investigation with more to come). I'll not write about any part of the investigation that I've learned about since (as a witness I know more than I should since inevitably my JAG brothers and sisters are deeply involved in the investigation). Don't assume that most of the current media accounts are very accurate. They're not. They'll improve with time. Only those of us who were there really know what went down. But as they collate our statements they'll get it right. VIDEO of interview with co-worker reveals outlandish statements made by Hasan.

American Vampires and Their Political Enablers
by Arnold Ahlert
Maybe I've reached the bursting point, but I've had it with with some of my fellow Americans — and even more so with their political enablers who know better, but whose lust for power overshadows anything resembling common decency. It's time for a reality check: this is one American whose sick and tired of subsidizing people who are too damn lazy to take care of themselves — and who expect other people to pick up the tab.

I Pledge My Allegiance to the Charters of Freedom
Time for the Tea Party to Become Tangible IV
by JB Williams
This column is the fourth installment of the series Time for the Tea Party to become Tangible. Parts I, II and III can be found in my CFP archives and I encourage you to read all of them in order to fully understand the strategy developing. In sum, the time for all American patriots to bind together in ONE united effort to seize control of their runaway federal government and return the nation to a constitutional foundation has arrived. We either do it peacefully and constitutionally NOW, or wait until we have no peaceful options left.

Why Tea Partiers will NEVER Win!
by JB Williams

Despite pulling out all the stops in the New York 23 House race, Tea Partiers behind 3rd Party candidate Doug Hoffman couldn’t close the deal! All of the conservative heavy hitters showed up for the final push to seat Hoffman in the House. Once again, conservatives succeeded on running a Republican (albeit a liberal Democrat with an R behind her name) out of the race, but failed to put their 3rd party candidate in the seat. At best, we’d have to call it a partial victory for the Tea Party – 912 – town hall movement, which means we will refer to it as a “shot across the bow” or “sending a message” to DC elites... again!

Unemployment Flim-Flam
by Paul R. Hollrah
In January 2009, as Obama unveiled his plans for economic recovery, he assured the Congress and the American people that, if we would just agree to set up a $787 billion slush fund for him to play with, he would fix our sick economy and that the unemployment rate would never exceed 8 percent. With a straight face, and with words that came straight from his teleprompter, he vowed that he would accomplish something that no man, and no government, has ever accomplished before: he would halt the downward spiral of the economy and stimulate economic growth, and he would do it all with borrowed money.

Where’s Your Grit?
Paul A. Ibbetson
America, where is your character, your pluck, your grit? If that question seems overly harsh and needlessly aggressive, then you are staring directly at the problem. This nation sits at the precipice of a fundamental, irreversible transformation that will make all too visible a new country that is incontrovertibly “one nation under a spineless, politically correct, brow-beaten, emasculated bunch of sheep.” Is that too harsh? If you believe my words are too offensive, that I should tone it down, then, you’re actually staring at the real problem.

'Nobody Questions That'?
by Mark Alexander
Never before has there been more evidence of outright contempt for our Constitution than under the current liberal hegemony presiding over the executive and legislative branches of our federal government. The protagonist of this Leftist regime is, of course, Barack Hussein Obama, who promised his constituents, "This is our moment, this is our time to turn the page on the policies of the past, to offer a new direction. We are fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

Obama uses tax payer money to destroy the free market
by Vincent Gioia
America became a great country by letting its people be all they can be without interference from government. In just less than a year all this has changed. We have seen the government dictate everything from toilets to light bulbs and take ownership interests in private enterprises in major segments of our economy. The formerly largest auto company has been taken over by the government and major banks now have the government sitting on their boards. The free market is no longer free and government expansionists are not through yet.

Pretending to Speak for an Entire Culture
by Frank Salvato
One of the things that brings me to the boiling point is when I hear elected officials tell me what “Americans want” or what “Americans think.” To believe that today's federally elected politicians understand – or care – what their constituents want, never mind Americans on the whole, after they belittled town hall attendees and ignored the citizenry's opposition to government-run healthcare is to exist in fantasyland.

Utopia or Dystopian Nightmare
Nancy Salvato

Sometimes I worry that our country will become more like the former Soviet Union. Americans will wait in lines for hours in order to receive bread for the week. I wonder what it would be like to run out of toilet paper and not be able to run to the store to stock up on what I grew up believing were necessities. Mostly, I am angered that I am living paycheck to paycheck...tethered to a house not worth the mortgage I own, unable to advance my earning potential because there is no free money for a middle aged white person who gives one third of her income back to the government to be spent on programs with which I don't agree and from which I receive no benefit.

Can Republicans Pander Their Way Into Leadership?
by Christopher G. Adamo
Never have the stars lined up for Republicans as profoundly as has been the case this year, with the arrogance and ugliness of the Obama, Reid, and Pelosi political juggernaut, and the threat it poses to the future of this country, on full display. But rather than seizing the moment and restoring the strength of political conservatism, too many among the GOP “inner circle” seem content to remain scavenging on the fringes of the liberal agenda.

Tangible Tea Party Tactics
Time for the Tea Party to Become Tangible III
by JB Williams
This wild ride started a week ago when I released Time for the Tea Party to become Tangible in which I floated the idea that the Tea Party – Town Hall and 912 movements must unite in a common nationwide effort to retake control of the GOP, followed by Making the Tea Party Tangible which identified some of the challenges inherent in any such effort. In short, uniting “the right” makes herding cats look easy!

Is Obama Impeachable?
by Paul R. Hollrah
Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution tells us that “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” In the history of the United States there have been only three Presidential impeachment proceedings: Following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, his successor, Andrew Johnson, served some two years, seven months, and six days before the first articles of impeachment were lodged against him.


A Serious Question
by The Patriot Post
We have known for many years that Democrats view the Constitution as an obstacle to their goals, not as something to be revered or upheld -- despite their repeated oaths to do just that. And as Mark Alexander warned last week, our Constitution is on life support. More evidence of the trauma inflicted by our elected "representatives" surfaced this week when CNSNews.com asked the only truly relevant question in the health care debate: Where in the Constitution is the authority to mandate that Americans buy health insurance?

Making the Tea Party Tangible
by JB Williams
Three days ago, I released Time for the Tea Party to become Tangible, in which I make a nationwide call for Tea Party – Town Hall and 912 protesters to do much more than just protest. The minute this piece hit the net, mail started flooding in from all over the country and from across the Tea Party – Town Hall – 912 patriots spectrum, 99.9% asking where to send the money! To say that I am overwhelmed by the response that has continued for the last 72 hours would be an understatement. Though I had hoped and believed that the time had arrived to unite the right, I had no idea how ready the patriot movement was for just such a tangible metamorphosis in the people’s movement.

Ain't No Fanatic like a Religious Fanatic
by Alan Burkhart
People can always find an excuse for killing each other. It’s human nature. But I find it doubly disturbing when someone feels wanton murder is somehow an act of righteousness. Faleh Hassan Almaleki and Yasser Said stand accused of attacking their daughters. The fact that as of this writing, both are still on the run pretty much cinches their guilt. Almaleki’s daughter, Noor Faleh Almaleki, is alive but suffered life-threatening injuries when her loving father ran her down with his car. Said’s two daughters were shot a total of eleven times in his taxi cab.

When Ideology Masks Ignorance
by Frank Salvato
After giving a talk to a group of family values minded Freeport, Illinois area residents addressing three major threats facing the United States – which I term “The Perfect Storm,” and a solution to a problem that safeguards the US Constitution, I found myself personally and ideologically assailed by a letter-writer to a local newspaper, a Ms. Patricia Wemstrom. I take issue with her critique not only because she mischaracterized each and every point that I made at the event, but also because she wasn't even in attendance.

Time for the Tea Party to become Tangible
by JB Williams
Like many Americans, I have been encouraged by the average citizens who have taken private time and resources to take a stand for the good ole United States of America, the US Constitution and the founding principles and values of freedom and liberty at Tea Parties and Town Hall meetings. But like many who have attended these events, disgusted by the overt intentional destruction of our magnificent country by DC elitists, I am deeply troubled by that fact that NOBODY in Washington is listening or reacting to the growing voice of peaceful dissent. When folks refuse to listen, sooner or later, people stop talking.

Liberalism Concocts “Bogeymen” While Ignoring Real Dangers
by Christopher G. Adamo
It is difficult to determine the most telling harbinger of the collapse of Western Civilization, but the October 19 statement by Gordon Brown, Britain’s Prime Minister, must surely be among the worst. Speaking to the “Major Economies Forum” in London, Brown hysterically asserted that the world has “fewer than fifty days” in which to enact a drastic international climate change treaty, or it is curtains for humanity. The translation, of course, is that Americans and Europeans must henceforth bankrupt themselves to fund a global socialist agenda.


Rising Above the Rabble
by Paul R. Hollrah, O.E
During the 1881 gubernatorial election in Mississippi, the segregationist Democrat, Robert Lowry, had nothing but disdain for his independent opponent, Benjamin King, and those who supported him… a coalition of “dissident farmers, Republicans, and blacks,” people who, from Lowry’s KKK-oriented perspective, were “gutter trash.” In his book, Political Culture of the 19th Century South, author Bradley G. Bond credits Lowry with one of the most profound statements ever made by an American politician.

Definition of Insanity
by Armand C. Hale
A good working description of insanity is to be “completely disconnected from reality” so says Fr. John Corapi. All you have to do is just hear what members of Congress, State and Federal Judiciaries and the White House keep deciding and proposing to the American people on a constant basis. They all refuse to hear the voices of the American people (reality) and continue down their path of imaginary, idealized, or false visions that ignores the realities of the world.

Obama’s Dual Citizenship
by Paul R. Hollrah, O.E.
Beginning in March 2008, a number of court cases were filed challenging Senator John McCain’s eligibility to serve as President of the United States. The first McCain eligibility challenge was filed by a Nashua, New Hampshire Republican named Fred Hollander.  Hollander alleged that McCain was ineligible to serve because he was not born within the geographic boundaries of the United States. But what about Obama? Who took the responsibility for vetting a candidate who was born to an African father, a citizen of Kenya, and who had little or no qualifications for the job… other than a presidential-sized ego and the ability to read well from a teleprompter?

“The American” makes Endangered Species List!
The Entitlement Generation
by JB Williams
This column is the subject of a book I am working to finish, as justice to this topic cannot be done in a single column, or even a short series of columns. But it is such a pressing matter at this moment in American history that I didn’t want to wait for book publication to address the very real threat to freedom inherent with the death of uniquely American principles and values. “The American” is officially on the list of endangered species today...

2010: Not The Time For “Faux Conservatism”
by Christopher G. Adamo
Our nation is coming apart at the seams, and Barack Obama is proving to be absolutely inept, or worse, at dealing with the situation. Instead of honestly assessing things and advancing solutions conceived in the best interests of the American people, he presses mindlessly forward with his ultra-liberal agenda, ignoring or deriding those who make any effort to forestall his destruction of the great institutions of this country.

Obama’s Fateful Decision
by Paul Eidelberg
1979 was the year of the Iranian Revolution, perhaps the most significant revolution in history. It brought the Ayatollah Khomeini and a serious Islamic regime to power. Islam cannot be true to itself without pursuing global supremacy. Iran is on the threshold of developing nuclear weapons. Iran could then control the Middle East’s enormous oil resources on which America’s and Europe’s economy depend. It is no longer scare-mongering to say the Iranian Revolution is the most serious threat ever faced by Western civilization.

How Crazy are those “Birthers?”
by JB Williams

In case you don’t know, after the terror attacks of 9/11/01, there were indeed a few Americans who honestly believed that the federal government was so corrupt that it was behind and responsible for the events of September 11th. Even though we all watched in shock, as hijacked planes flew into the twin towers, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field, these folks imagined that someone in Washington DC might have blown up those buildings instead.

It’s Time to Connect Obama’s Dots
by Curt Smith
Barack Obama campaigned as George Washington, calming and unifying. Elected, he governs like George McGovern. Tens of millions of Americans feel deceived. They should, since they were. Obama’s revised 10-year deficit now tops $9 trillion. A $410 billion bailout, $787 billion stimulus, and $1 trillion health care mock his pledge of moderation. As bad, having vowed a post-racial Presidency, he often resembles the head of La Raza or the NAACP. Last year, hoping to “move beyond race,” many resisted connecting Obama’s dots.

Mark Levin vs. Glenn Beck
by Charlotte Baker
The following letter was written to Mark Levin by my associate editor, Charlotte Baker, after hearing his recent comments regarding Glenn Beck. The letter speaks for itself. October 17, 2009 Dear Mark, As a longtime loyal listener, I want to express my thanks to you for having announced this past week that as a result of the Obama White House war against Fox News Channel, you will no longer be casting snide, derogatory comments relating to Glenn Beck. That's a good thing.

Wolves in Sheep's Clothing?
by Kelleigh Nelson
In the late 70s and early 80s, many grassroots Americans found out about the movement for a new Constitutional Convention (con-con). By 1986, 32 of the 34 states needed for a new constitutional convention had passed calls for a convention. The reason used for this call for a con-con was for a balanced budget amendment. Sounds great doesn’t it? However, it was a ruse used by those who want to radically change our constitution and basically destroy the founding fathers’ document.


Obama and the End of White Guilt
by Jeff Lukens
Barack Obama portrayed himself as America's first "post-racial" president, yet he and his supporters continue to play the race card against ordinary Americans who oppose him. Despite a big election victory, Obama is unable to understand that ordinary Americans do not like being bullied. Nor does he understand that they do not like being called racists for political disagreements.

New federal law will make thought punishable
by Vincent G. Gioia
Passing a law that makes an act a crime does not stop such acts from occurring; it merely punishes a person who performs the act. There is nothing wrong with punishment for committing an act that society deems wrong but it should be recognized that punishment is a form of societal revenge and not a device to prevent offensive acts. But there is a problem with what acts should be deemed punishable. ...some acts may be regarded as worthy of societal retribution and others are simply an effort of behavioral modification, e.g. murder is wrong, punishment for not wearing a seat belt while driving is for behavioral modification... What is a hate crime? The answer is whatever law makers say it is.

Obama’s Delay Is Turning Afghanistan Into A Quagmire
by StopTheACLU.com
Barack Obama we are told is a smart man. He attended Columbia University and Harvard Law. He lectured Constitutional law at the University of Chicago, but does any of this qualify him to be Commander-in-Chief? On the campaign trail, candidate Obama famously called Afghanistan the “good war”. But the truth of the matter, Afghanistan was the stagnant war. The enemy shifted its focus to Iraq because that is where we chose to fight. The Taliban and al Qaeda where chased out of Afghanistan and into Pakistan and needed to be regrouped.

All Units BOLO!
by Armand C. Hale

If you ever have been in law enforcement you know that BOLO stands for, “Be on the Look Out.” It’s a system that alerts authorities to watch for particular persons. Here is my BOLO report for the American people: RINOs In New York. New York's 23rd congressional district continues to heat up. It’s been a safe, reliable GOP district since the Civil War. So what do the party bosses do? Nominate one of the very few pro-homosexual-marriage Republicans around named Scozzafava. Socialized Health Care go away. According to McClatchy Newspapers, "the Obama White House has launched a behind-the-scenes campaign, in an attempt to quietly build support for the public option" and Obama has personally...

Obamacomedy - If it weren't so tragic, it would be hilarious
by Dan Kennedy, Townhall.com
The president’s a real comedian. I’m not referring to the performance on Letterman as much as I am at the G20 Summit, where, humorously, he spoke of his determination to prevent and prohibit the “reckless risk-taking” that he asserts brought about the banking crisis and crash of the economy. What’s hilarious is his omitting any mention of his own reckless risk-taking, on such an epic scale it makes what went on over on Wall Street seem a penny ante poker game.

It's Time to Pay Close Attention to the Politicians
by Frank Salvato

I have long said that we, the citizens of the United States, must demand good government over politics from our elected officials. The need for this demand has grown exponentially over the past four decades. While We the People were pre-occupied with the trappings of the self-centered 1960s, the self-absorption of the 1970s, the greed culture of the 1980s and the falsely elevated self-esteem culture of the 1990s, political opportunists and special interest operatives, cloaked in the façade of public service, quietly took control of our federal government. Now we are paying the price of cronyism politics over good government.

Vapor Bill Outrage in the Imperial Senate
by Dan Perrin, RedState.com
How sustainable a political position does this sound like: You can’t see the Senate ObamaCare legislative language and we will not tell you how much it costs. Now they know better. Not only is the actual language of what is likely to become the main legislative vehicle for Obama’s signature health care reform not available on the Internet, it hasn’t been given to members of the key Senate committees or the Congressional Budget Office. Welcome to the Imperial Senate whose leaders view the public with contempt and the elitist attitude that you should not see the legislative language because you cannot understand it.

The government does not create wealth; it merely redistributes tax money received
by Vincent G. Gioia
With all the government spending these days it’s easy to forget that the government does not create wealth; whatever the government gives to some it takes from others. The tax system is designed to be the vehicle for this transfer of wealth. Barack Obama said, famously, that he wants to spread the wealth but this was being done long before Obama had aspirations to become president. Once elected, Obama merely expedited the transfer of wealth and wants to bring it to new levels of “success.”

Half a President
by Steve McCann, American Thinker
President Obama apparently wants to do only half of his job -- the part that is the most fun. And he's got his eyes on a higher position. Barack Obama has been the number one topic of conversation among many of my friends and associates in London. His incompetence, narcissism and danger to the interests of the United States and its allies in Europe are startling people. I was asked "How does Obama view himself as President?" We happened to be sitting in a hotel which overlooked Buckingham Palace and suddenly the answer to the question came to me.

Europe Prefers A Presidency That Fails America
by Christopher G. Adamo
Last January, Rush Limbaugh shocked the liberal establishment, and much of the world, when he flatly assessed America’s prospects under the Obama Administration with the words “I hope he fails.” In the minds of myopic leftists who cannot comprehend the possibility of anything succeeding outside of taxpayer funded government programs, Limbaugh was expressing his desire for America itself to fail. Surely, America could only succeed if Obama succeeds. This is the heart and soul of liberalism. But, like the rest of the liberal philosophy, it is fundamentally wrong.

Legislating in Secret
The end of the era of transparency before it began
by Vincent G. Gioia
When you don’t want people to know what you’re doing, what do you do – you don’t tell them. The robotic Obama Democrat congress is implementing the outrageous practice of shielding new legislation not only from the public but also from the legislators who vote on them. Thanks to Washington Examiner correspondent, Susan Ferrechio, we know that the Democrat leadership in congress is fighting against posting bills online - and winning.


The Summer of 1981
by Paul R. Hollrah
On Page 118 of Barack Obama’s memoir, Dreams from My Father, he tells of his arrival in New York to attend Columbia University and of the events that took place during that summer… the summer of 1981. Although Obama fails to mention it in either of his memoirs… not in Dreams from My Father and not in The Audacity of Hope… he traveled to Indonesia and Pakistan during the summer of 1981. By his own admission, it is now well established that Obama did travel to Indonesia and Pakistan during the summer of 1981, but that trip raises some serious questions. Aside from the question of how he went from being flat broke to financing an around-the-world trip in just four weeks, it would be interesting to know how he managed to squeeze so much into such a short period of time. But now it appears we may be one step closer to having definitive answers to part of the mystery.

The Only Real Strategy for Afghanistan
by Frank Salvato
There has been quite a bit of criticism directed at President Obama for his handling – or mishandling – of the Afghan theater in the global conflict with radical Islamists. To be certain, it should be the number one or, at the very least, number two item on his list of priorities. That it is not is deserving of criticism. But the catalyst for this dysfunctional thinking emanates from the reality that we, as a nation, don't have a proper understanding of the conflict at hand and, therefore, have very different opinions – some based in fact but most influenced by ideology – as to the consequences of implementing the wrong strategy.

How Democracy is being used to Destroy our Republic
by JB Williams
Contrary to popular public education propaganda, the United States of America is NOT, has never been, and should never be a “democracy.” It is and must always be, a constitutional representative republic, and yes, there is a VERY significant difference. Don’t confuse the term “democratic society” with “democracy.” A representative republic is a “democratic” form of self-governance - of, by and for “the people.” In the case of the Unites States, we have a system limited by the scope and authority granted to the Fed in the US Constitution.

Revealed: How Liberalism Exploits The Vulnerable
by Christopher G. Adamo
Of all of the outrages uncovered by James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, who in a sting operation exposed one corrupt “ACORN” office after another by requesting information on how to evade taxes, bring underage foreign prostitutes into the country, and perpetrate other acts of fraud, certainly the most indicting was the commentary by the ACORN worker who warned Giles that if her supposed underlings became educated, they “wouldn’t need her anymore.” Not knowing that she was on camera, this “community organizer” gave away the dirtiest of the dirty secrets of the left.

Democratic Racism “Bubbles” Up
by Paul R. Hollrah
Try to imagine the 4th congressional district of Georgia. It is a mostly black district represented by second term Congressman Hank Johnson. The district was represented for many years by one of the most celebrated nutcases in congressional history, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. It is a district which proves, if nothing else, that fools and idiots have a right to be represented in Congress just like everyone else.

Mass Psychosis of the Radical Left
by JB Williams
Far be it for me to play armchair shrink here, but the more I see how the modern leftist mind works, the more I am convinced that there is a very real mental disorder in play. For years I thought that radical leftists in the U.S. were just ill-informed, morally bankrupt children of the ‘60s, born with pot, acid, party barbiturates or heroin coursing through their veins. I thought they were just well indoctrinated by yesteryears’ draft dodgers become Ivy League Law professors or anti-American ACLU legal hacks. But the closer I look at their consistent behavioral patterns, the more I become convinced that there is a mass psychosis involved.

DNC Failed to Certify Obama as Eligible in MOST States!
The Theory is Now a Conspiracy – III
by By JB Williams
When I first became aware that the Democratic National Committee prepared, signed and notarized two slightly different Certification of Nomination documents for the Obama-Biden ticket in the 2008 election, I was shocked and after verifying both documents as real, I wrote about it in The Theory is Now a Conspiracy and Facts Don’t Lie released on September 10, 2009. The question was obvious – Why TWO different DNC Obama certification documents, and why did one have proper certification of constitutional eligibility in it, while the other had that certification deleted?

Why Obama Will Throw ACORN Under the Bus
by Frank Salvato
The spotlight of scrutiny is shining brightly on ACORN these days and rightly so. Where ACORN's defenders have the audacity to insist that the employees caught on undercover videotape giving advice to a perceived “pimp” and “prostitute” on how to defraud the Internal Revenue Service and internationally traffic in underage Guatemalan prostitutes were simply “a few bad employees,” anyone with a brain recognizes that the problem is systemic in the organization.

Is the Federal Reserve Bank more powerful than the US government?
by Vincent Gioia
Much has been written (especially here) about the Federal Reserve Bank but nothing previously revealed about the Fed comes close to the outrageous arrogance as displayed when they thumb their nose at the government in response to a simple legitimate request for information. The Federal Reserve Board has rejected a request by U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner for a public review of the central bank's structure and governance. Let us also remember that the Fed has never been audited by the government since 1913 when this abomination was created at the urging of powerful domestic and international bankers.

Consequences Of Obama’s “Jimmy Carter Replay”
by Christopher G. Adamo

It was perhaps fitting this last week that former President Jimmy Carter again went public with a continuation of the insipid drivel for which he has become so famous. In an interview on NBC, he asserted that conservative opposition to Barack Obama is undoubtedly the result of racism. Sadly, even in his advanced years, Jimmy Carter is still capable of descending to the same levels of idiocy that he achieved in his “prime.” More significantly, the intended beneficiary of Carter’s banal commentary, Barack Obama, now holds this nation’s highest office.

Get in Shape America
by Armand C. Hale
Like any athlete getting ready for the winter Olympics, America must be primed for the 2010 elections. How we’ve trained determines a win, or getting pulverized by all the enemies’ of freedom, Judeo-Christian values and free market systems. This is but a snap shot of what is going on the media won’t report. You need to “be on the lookout” (BOLO) when talking to candidates for public office and propositions on the ballot box. A nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.

Obama’s Public Health Option and Amnesty
Illegal Migrants and the Aztlan Movement
By JB Williams

Settle in for a long read... There is NO way to do this topic justice in a column length article. But there is NO more important topic to cover today! In recent years, US citizens have taken note of the federal push for a public health option aimed at providing free health care to illegal aliens. They have also taken note of the constant federal effort to pass some form of amnesty for more than 20 million illegal immigrants. This number will become an estimated 60 million, if allowed to pass into law.

Purported non Muslim President Obama makes high level Muslim appointment to DHS
By Vincent Gioia

Purported non Muslim Barack Hussein Obama made a presidential appointment of Muslim Los Angeles Deputy Mayor Arif Alikhan for a top job at the federal Department of Homeland Security. In his new job Arif Alikhan will be Assistant Secretary for the Office of Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security. Alikhan has been Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles – in charge of public safety for the city. Why Muslim Alikhan at the Department of Homeland Security you might ask?

The Theory is Now a Conspiracy – II An Ongoing Citizen Investigation
by JB Williams
For a few years now, I have been stating that there is no political savior, no silver bullet and no government agency that was going to save the United States of America from the heavy hand of federal tyranny wrapped around the throat of every American citizen, namely American taxpayers. On September 10, 2009, I released a column that created a firestorm across the nation. The Theory is Now a Conspiracy and Facts Don't Lie brought to national light, a story that had apparently been brewing on a few tiny little citizen blogs for months.

Who is the president – Barack Obama or David Axelrod?
by Vincent Gioia

Many people believe Obama is not the architect of the new socialism driving government policy these days but there is speculation about who is behind the smooth character behind the teleprompter. I don’t know the answer but at the very least it is clear that Obama’s Senior Advisor, David Axelrod, shares mouthpiece honors. We frequently hear Robert Gibbs in his role as Obama press agent explain to the news media what the president means during his speech marathon but comments by Axelrod actually sound like the president speaking.

C” is for Conspiracy, “D” is for Democrat
by Paul R. Hollrah
On Tuesday, September 9, in the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse at Santa Ana, California, U.S. District Judge David O. Carter gave the American people renewed hope that the words of the U.S. Constitution still have meaning. Judge Carter has set a tentative date of January 26, 2010 to hear arguments in a case that “challenges Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president based on questions over his qualifications under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.” Attorneys from the U.S. Department of Justice, representing Obama at taxpayer expense, entered a motion for dismissal on Friday, September 5. Judge Carter refused to consider the motion to dismiss and set a hearing date of October 5 to hear arguments on the motion.

THE TREACHERY OF AMERICA’S CHURCH LEADERS
by Katherine Thomas

The Gamaliel Foundation and its affiliates are one of America’s fifth column agencies that seek to destroy America from within by aiding, abetting and comforting the enemy - the elite Global Socialists - as chronicled in The Treachery of America's Fifth Columns. This foundation is a dangerous, leftist, ACORN-like community organization that has settled in 19 states, Great Britain, and South Africa.  Because their modus operandi is to move incrementally within local church communities via stealth and deception, there has been negligible national coverage of their activities.

And Heaven Wept
by Karen Hathaway Pittman
Down it poured – a nerve-scalping war dance of rain, pummeling its drums and refusing to let up. Like a tribe of ghouls, the uninvited gusts howled around the pit. If, as the Native Americans believed, the wind really is an instrument through which the souls of the dead commune with the living, what, then, on this day of all days, was it trying so hard to say? Friday marked the passing of the first anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks without George Bush. The man who for seven years stood strong as our graying father figure and Condoler-in-Chief was nowhere to be seen, though he was with us in spirit, to be sure.

The Calling of the Roll: Side Making and Side Taking for the Future of America
by Paul A. Ibbetson

Whose side are you on? When it comes to what kind of America we will have in the future, that we will hand down to our children, the battle lines are being drawn, opposing sides are marshalling their forces and counting their numbers. Yes, those that would wish to see a new America through the vision of President Barack Obama, an America washed free of the capitalistic free market and its Christian foundations, have never been closer to seeing this scarlet dream come alive. For those who would wish to hold together the constitutional representative republic brought forth by the founding fathers, the country as they have known it appears to be slipping through their fingers.

Political Science 101: Power Breeds Corruption
by Nancy Salvato
Chicago is known as “The Windy City” not because it is windy (although anyone who tries to use an umbrella during a heavy rain in the Loop knows how difficult that can prove) but because of the blowhard politicians it has produced throughout the centuries. Chicago's scandalous history of political corruption began in the l9th century around the time of the Chicago Fire continuing through today, most notably, Governor Blagojevich's attempt to “sell” President Obama's Senate seat. Political malfeasance doesn't begin and end in Illinois, though. Other states have equal or worse reputations.

American, Heal Thyself
by Armand C. Hale
The federal governments' consolidation of power along with out of control spending is a malignant tumor in Americas' body. Strong & drastic treatment needs to be introduced now. Here's what can be given to our patient for its critical condition. Force Congress to take its own medicine. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Congressman John Fleming of Louisiana's 4th District is supporting House Resolution 615 to force members of Congress to join the same health care system the government is forcing down Americas' throat.

Obamacare H.R. 3200 - a study in obfuscation and plausible deniability
by Vincent Gioia
Ultra liberals in the House and Senate, who were thwarted for many years, finally achieved the perfect storm of politics with them in charge of congress and an ultra liberal president in the White House. This deadly combination managed to have the government take over the auto industry, the banking system, and now has set the stage to extend control to Wall St., energy (with “cap and trade”) and the health care industry.

M-O-N-E-Y & Influence
by Nancy Salvato
Money may not really buy love or make the world go round, but it certainly does help society to function efficiently. Money, which is assigned a value, is the item of exchange we use if we want to purchase something. The work we do to earn money is also assigned a value and the amount something costs reflects the value in producing or developing it. Most people would agree that the reward of money is the incentive they need to invest their time and labor into many of the tasks that demand their attention. While there may be additional reasons for applying ourselves to projects, a surplus of money allows us more freedom to devote our energy to additional pursuits.

The Theory is Now a Conspiracy And Facts Don’t Lie
by JB Williams
A political national committee, the Chair of the Party convention, the Secretary of the Party, Party offices in each of fifty states, and maybe many – many more, have knowingly and wantonly defrauded the American election system and more than 300 million American citizens. The DNC drafted, signed and notarized TWO slightly different versions of their Official Certification of Nomination documents, not one. One of those documents had complete legal language, and one of them was missing the text concerning the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama. The version which is absent any certification of constitutional standing for the office of President is the version that was filed with every state in the country, and the one used by the DNC to elect Barack Obama President.

“Please, God, No...It's So Hot, I'm Burning Up”
by Frank Salvato
"The floor is completely engulfed. We're on the floor, and we can't breathe, and it's very, very, very hot...I'm going to die, I know it. Please, God, no. It's so hot, I'm burning up!" These were some of the last words of Melissa Doi, 32, one of the thousands of innocent victims that perished at the hands of radical Islamists on September 11, 2001. In all, 3,017 souls were lost and 6,291+ people were injured on that fateful day by al Qaeda terrorists in New York City, Arlington County, VA, and Shanksville, PA. Now, eight years later, one of the biggest fears held by counterterrorism experts and experts on radical Islam is coming to pass and we are less safe for it.

An analysis of President Obama’s hard sell of socialized medicine
by Vincent Gioia

It’s ironical that Obama spoke the truth during his campaign for the presidency and once elected does not. No one listened then but many are listening now. Obama told Americans what he believed both by the people with whom he associated and the policies he would follow as president. No one listened then but many are listening now. As for his political beliefs, Obama famously admitted he would “spread the wealth” if elected. He also said he would enact Health Care “Reform.” The only thing he didn’t expressly say was that he would expand government and government control over our lives. Nonetheless this was also apparent to anyone who listened carefully, but once again, too many didn’t listen.

Van Jones Debacle Highlights “Mainstream Media” Irrelevancy
by Christopher G. Adamo
It is hard to grasp the extent of the boondoggle that was and is the Van Jones episode, with its mix of nutty comedy and sinister, anti-Americanism. The former so-called “Green Czar” carried an enormous load of baggage that should long ago have relegated him to the fringes of radicalism and precluded any serious consideration of him within official circles. Yet despite his outlandish beliefs, the most telling aspect of the Jones saga has been the near total blackout by the “mainstream media” (read: Obama propagandists). As the extremism of a key Obama Administration player was systematically discovered and brought to the attention of the American people, and as their outrage over his unfitness for office reached a crescendo, the network anchors and major press outlets dutifully found nothing newsworthy to report.

Tennessee Grand Jury Joins DOJ in Obstructing Justice
by JB Williams
The US Constitution and the entire American way of life hang in the balance. Yet it is clear that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is engaged in running interference for someone very likely to be an unconstitutional fraud, busily dismantling our sovereign nation while his high-dollar Ivy League lawyers play politics with the justice system. For months now, numerous efforts to smoke Barack Hussein Obama out into the open where he can become the “transparent” president he promised to be, have been thwarted by Obama’s Department of Justice. The American people have been categorically denied access to the courts or any other peaceful means of redress and the clock is ticking on this time bomb.

The devil is in the details
by Vincent Gioia
The devil is in the details and nothing can be more devilish than having government bureaucrats decide whether you can or cannot receive needed health care. While supporters and critics of Obama’s heath care “reform” argue about whether to have a “Government” (or “Public”) option, “Co-ops”, or a “Trigger” to activate the Public option, completely overlooked is the most insidious aspect of health care plans demanded by Obama and proposed by Democrats. Every one of these Democrat plans to change the health care system includes a "Government Health Care Board and Health Care Choices Commissioner" to dictate what and to which Americans medical care can be provided.

Democrats and Obama must think Republicans are idiots
by Vincent Gioia

Having failed to sell the “co-op” option as a substitute for the “government option,” Obamacare fanatics are now pushing the “trigger” option. Of course, any thinking Republican (which excludes Olympia Snowe) sees right through this scheme. This new proposal to help Democrats pass Obamacare is submitted by no other than Senator Olympia Snowe, (R-Maine), with whom Republicans can do without. Under such an option, if agreed-upon goals are not met by the insurance industry, then that would pull the trigger on government-run insurance; thus keeping a government-run insurance plan on reserve.

Bring the Troops Home Now!
by JB Williams
While America was at war with international terror organizations responsible for the death of nearly 3,000 innocent American citizens on 9/11/01 and thousands of others around the globe, I was an outspoken voice in 100% support of our troops and the missions they were given, which kept the homeland safe from further attacks for eight years, in the wake of 9/11. Today, as the new administration retreats from the War on Terror, refusing to even acknowledge the “Holy War” that has been waged against western civilization by Islamic Extremists for more than 30 years, I find it necessary to change direction on behalf of our men and women in uniform.

Echoes From The Grave
by Paul R. Hollrah
As the setting sun dipped slowly below the horizon, turning the stately old residence of General Robert E. Lee into a dark silhouette against the western sky, an inky darkness descended over the graves of our nation’s heroes in Arlington National Cemetery. Meanwhile, on the slopes below… reminiscent of Bill Clinton’s reluctant departure from the city in January 2001… the meticulously-planned funeral service for Senator Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy was running a full two hours behind schedule.

Liberty or Tyranny by Beck
by Dick McDonald

The small town of Mount Vernon, Washington, is honoring Glen Beck with the keys to the city for his success. Three people protested so your media drove 140 miles to cover the protesters to again prove what a biased propaganda institution the media has become. The Founders gave the press the freedom to protect “we the people” not to enslave us with lies and distortions. Every day Glen Beck is fighting the battle our Founders won over 233 years ago – will the individual free himself from the tyranny of the state. The American people elected Barack Obama and the Democrats to run the country last November not to run the country into the ground.

Missing the Larger Point on the Public Option
by Frank Salvato
As Congress prepares to return to work – now there’s an oxymoron – the subject of healthcare is weighing heavy in the air. The August recess provided the American people with contentious town hall meetings where We the People were described by opportunistic, power-hungry politicians as “astroturfers,” “un-American” and “terrorists.” It also saw the Progressive Liberal machine dispatch their minions – special interest group contingents from ACORN, MoveOn.org, SEIU, etc. – to the citizenry in an effort to silence the dissent about government-run healthcare and provide a cheery backdrop for Progressives and President Obama as they “met” with the unwashed masses. But in the debate over healthcare and the public option everyone, sans a very few, missed a constitutional point of order.

Dear Leader, There’s a Town Hall Fly in Your Ointment
by JB Williams

FACT: American citizens taking their anger to town hall meetings across the country are NOT “right-wing racists” organized by “right-wing conspirators” aiming to “create a repeat of the 1994 election” that put Republicans in control of congress. They are just angry Americans... FACT: Town hall protesters are NOT Republican operatives, but rather average Republican, Democrat and Independent American citizens who have finally awakened to the out of control destruction of their country coming out of Washington DC. FACT: They are NOT just opposed to the Marxist effort to confiscate federal control of 1/7th of the US economy via ObamaCare, but ALL of the leftist policies coming out of Washington DC today.

Obamacare: When Growing Old Becomes A “Crime”
by Christopher G. Adamo

Immediately following the passage in the Declaration of Independence avowing the rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” is the phrase, “to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men.” Clearly, in the minds of the founders, the purpose of government should only be to uphold a just and defensible societal structure within which the people can maximize their freedoms and interests. Throughout the formative years of America, government of the people and by the people was widely understood to exist for the people. The America of 2009 no longer resembles those lofty ideals in any respect.

Justice Anthony Kennedy puts the country between a “rock and a hard place”
by Vincent Gioia

In 2007 Justice Anthony Kennedy decided that what we exhale every second of our lives, carbon dioxide (CO2), is a pollutant. As a result of this one man’s opinion, Americans will be subjected to government regulations that will change their world. In a 5-4 decision written by Justice John Paul Stevens the U.S. Supreme Court said the language of the Clean Air Act, defining "air pollutant" is a “sweeping definition, and the greenhouse gases”, namely carbon dioxide, “fit well within the definition of air pollutant.” It was the vote of Anthony Kennedy, who joined with the liberal block that decided the issue; all four sensible Justices, Roberts, Alito, Scalia and Thomas, dissented.

The Real Ted Kennedy
by Paul R. Hollrah
Watching the seemingly endless line of people parading past the flag-draped coffin of the late Edward M. (Ted) Kennedy, one wonders what it’s all about. Yes, liberals and Democrats are fond of conjecturing about “what might have been” had JFK and Bobby Kennedy not been assassinated, or “what might have been” if Kennedy had not driven his mother’s Oldsmobile off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island that fateful night in July 1969, killing Mary Jo Kopechne in the process.

My H1N1 Story - Government Run Health Scare
by JB Williams
For months the Obama administration has been working to scare the hell out of every American concerning a “world wide pandemic” of the H1N1 “swine flu” virus. This week, Obama health officials are out in number warning that the virus will infect 50% of Americans over the coming weeks, and that at least 90,000 Americans will die, double the number of normal flu season fatalities. The information on the subject has been lies covered up with more lies and wrapped in an enigma of scattered half-truths and intentional misdirection from our fools in government. The incredibly poor handling of the matter leads one to wonder if the whole mess isn’t by intent...

Who Is Behind Quashing the Birth Certificate Issue?
by Joan Swirsky

Back in October of 2008, when the subject of Obama’s Constitutional eligibility to be president of the United States was just a blip on the radar screen of public awareness, I wrote an article about how easy it was to find my then -92-year-old mother’s birth certificate. Following her brief intro, Joan goes on to expose a laundry list of people and organizations who account for the power and money involved the conspiracy behind that man in the White House and the resulting media blackout and court denials on his background and citizenship. Has Communism and thug politics finally taken over our country? You be the judge.

Dinner with Obama
by unknown, submitted by Armand C. Hale
Once upon a time, a business woman was invited to the White House for a private dinner with Obama. She is a respectable woman with a factory that produces memory chips for computers and portable electronics. There was some talk that her industry was being scrutinized by the administration. She paid it no mind. She lives in a free country. There's nothing the government can do to me if I've broken no laws. Her wealth was earned honestly and an invitation to dinner with Obama is an honor.

America’s International Standing Founders Under Obama
by Christopher G. Adamo
Once again, a dosage of reality is needed to properly assess the real effect that Barack Obama is having on America’s standing among the nations of the world. And as usual, the truth is far less glowing than the liberal media enclave would have us believe. Americans are incessantly told that those other nations are currently much happier with it and feel less threatened by it under the headship of an avowed leftist like Obama. While such an appraisal is quite believable, it does not follow that this translates into an elevated respect from those nations.

Challenging the Status Quo
by Frank Salvato
With the death of US Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-MA) the Democrats lose their sixty-seat filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. This will make the passing of Obama agenda legislation – specifically healthcare – more difficult until Massachusetts seats its next Junior Senator, who promises to be a Democrat. The loss of even one Democrat in the Senate is cause for concern for Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) because he has a rogue element within his Democrat caucus, the Blue Dog Democrats.

Obama’s Assault on America
by JB Williams

Based upon the thousands of American citizens taking to the streets at Tea Parties and Town Hall’s across the country, in protest to the outright theft of their nation by far left extremists now in control of all three branches of the Fed, I’d say it’s safe to assume that the American people are finally awake... But knowing what’s going on and stopping it are two very different things. Being willing to act and being committed to winning at any cost are also two very different things.

The law of supply and demand applies to health care too
by Vincent Gioia
What happens when the supply of widgets needed to sustain life is less than the demand or said another way, the supply of widgets is far less than the number of widgets people need to stay alive? Based on current evidence, everyone but Democrats would understand that the cost of widgets will go up in a free market and distribution of available widgets would have to be limited in some way, in other words, rationed. If a widget is health care, then when more people are added to the reservoir of people entitled to health care by including them in health insurance programs and the supply of health care providers and the cost remains the same, just like the example above health care must be rationed.

Another Failed “Public Option”
by JB Williams

Democrats had controlled the Tennessee state legislature since the Civil War. Their attempt at a state run public heath care option would, in the end, cost Democrats control of both houses of the state legislature, and brand a Republican governor a traitor... Democrat Governor Ned McWherter and his Democrat legislature passed the “public option” for Tennessee heath care in 1994, TennCare... Medicaid had already failed, and the federal government under Democrat Bill Clinton, had taken to shifting losses and expenses to the states as a means of cutting losses in the federal budget.

What Exactly, is the Government's Job?
by Alan Burkhart
With each passing day the federal government takes on more and more responsibility. And with each new obligation it assumes, the quality of the services We The People receive declines. Health care is no exception. I'll be honest: If government could offer a viable, affordable, effective, simple and expedient method of health care delivery I'd be tempted to join up. But no government is capable of doing such a thing. The impending insolvency of Medicare and Medicaid, along with the overall shoddy performance of the Veterans Administration should be ample proof of this fact.

Revolution
by Paul R. Hollrah
Returning from a congressional town hall meeting in Pryor Creek, Oklahoma last Tuesday, one of three town hall meetings held that day by our “blue dog” Democrat congressman, Dan Boren, I couldn’t help but notice a long deep gouge cut into the pavement of Sam’s Corner Road, near our home. And as I rounded the next bend in the road I could see what had cause the damage to the road. Parked off to the right side of the road was a large red septic tank truck, a “honey wagon,” with all of its left rear wheels missing. ...he wheels are slowly but surely coming off the political “honey wagon” that is the Obama Administration.

BIG Labor Administration: Focused on 20 mil New DNC Union Thugs
by JB Williams
While the nation is focused on stopping Obama’s Marxist health scare plan, Obama’s DHS is quietly moving forward on amnesty, free health care and voting rights for some 20 million illegal migrants. It’s not hard to figure out their motives... Labor unions now own and operate the Democrat Party via their Democratic Socialists of America. 20 million illegal aliens already in the U.S. will generate more than 8 million new dues paying union members, who will be trained to vote Democrat in upcoming elections.

What Really Happened In Bozeman
by JR Dieckmann
The following is a letter I received from a Bozeman, MT. resident who was present at the Obama “townhall meeting” held last week in Montana. What this witness says should come as no surprise to anyone who has been watching how Obama ran his campaign, and is now running the White House, in which there is little difference. Everything Obama says is scripted. Every appearance Obama makes for the TV cameras is staged and choreographed like a Hollywood production. Nothing is real - not even Obama himself - unless you believe that Charlton Heston is really Moses, and Kiefer Sutherland is really Jack Bower.

You Say You Want a Real Solution
by Frank Salvato
As the debate over health care reform rages on – and despite the fact that the debate should be over how to provide true health care affordability to all, if in fact the goal of the “overhaul” is genuinely about the good of the downtrodden – we hear one retort from Progressives, Liberals and neo-Marxists, both in government and out: Where is your plan if you don’t like ours? Truth be told, there are several conservative and Republican crafted plans but Madam Pelosi and Mr. Reid won’t entertain them and the agenda-driven mainstream media won’t cover them.

Stand Up Patriots
by Armand C. Hale
On Saturday September 5, at 1 – 4 pm in Austin, Texas, a “Stand Up for Texas Rally” will give the Texas people a chance to voice their opposition to health care, cap-and-trade, and other D.C. atrocities. Joe the Plumber will be the keynote speaker at this event. Patriots of freedom in general and Texans specifically must push our Congress to stop this federal power grab. Section 1221 (b) from H.R. 3200 legislation now pending in Congress would require doctors and hospitals to provide interpreters and translation services free of charge to non-English speaking patients.

The Reagan/Palin Model For Leadership
by Christopher G. Adamo
The healthcare fight is far from over. Barack Obama has invested the entirety of his political capital into his aggressive strategy for passing some form of medical socialism during his term. Yet it is clear that the playing field has changed and the Democrats are now completely on the defensive. Obama’s one-time expectations of passing the bill prior to the August recess seem like a sorry parody. Something has drastically altered the debate and dissipated the earlier momentum that once seemed to make nationalized “healthcare” an inevitability.

Who’s Responsible for 75 Dead and 310 Injured? Barack Hussein Obama
by JB Williams
Unlike when every liberal and socialists in the world blamed George W. Bush for hurricane Katrina, even though no American president yet has the power to create hurricanes, direct where the storm will hit land, or make a foolish Mayor get his people out of harms way with two weeks advanced notice of trouble - the person responsible for 75 dead and 310 injured in Iraq this morning is quite obvious... Determined to keep some form of his arbitrary Iraq troop withdrawal plan intact, just to keep his Code Pinko constituents back home appeased while he fumbles every political football on earth.

Don’t be fooled by the co-op option of healthcare
by Vincent G. Gioia
Obama and his Democrat minions in congress are a shifty bunch. First we are told that the death option is or will be taken off the healthcare bill (whichever of the three that will be passed) and then Obama says the “government option” may also be stricken to be replaced by something called “co-op” plans. But the truth is that they have no intention of letting go of their master plan; government control of health care available to Americans.

Obama’s Well Organized Community Is Falling Apart
by JB Williams
It’s now official -- the average American is not as stupid as Washington DC Democrats and their international leftist friends thought. Their mystery messiah has already gone from hero to zero after only eight months in power, and Obama has now become a noose around the neck of every American Democrat, and every international fascist who “hoped” Obama could usher in Marxist “change.”

The Real Problem with Healthcare
by Paul R. Hollrah
The real problem with healthcare in our country is not quality or availability; the problem with healthcare is the inexplicably high cost, and the fact that no one seems interested in finding out exactly why healthcare is so expensive and who gets all the money. The current resident of the White House and his friends in Congress are now attempting to ram through a national healthcare system that will extend healthcare coverage to 10 million or 40 million (take your pick) uninsured residents, legal and illegal; a plan that they claim will not interfere with existing patient-doctor-insurer relationships and that will reduce the overall amount that Americans now spend on healthcare.

‘You Have Awakened the Sleeping Giant’
by Frank Salvato

One of the benefits coming from the recent congressional town hall meetings – of which there are many – is that we now know to what extent the elected class in Washington DC is cognizant of their constituents’ positions on the issues; specifically, healthcare. They aren’t, especially on the Left side of the aisle. Instead, the elected class in Washington – and it is true for an overwhelming majority on both sides of the aisle – has opted-out of their sworn duty to represent their constituents in deference to a blinding loyalty to their political party organizations and the ideologies they hold.

God would not endorse Obamacare
by Vincent Gioia
When one consider the decline in the number of people going to church regularly or being a member of an organized religion, it is not surprising that Barack Obama is as successful as he is in reforming the United States into a Marxist image. Communism is the antithesis of religion and regards religion as the "opiate of the masses." Socialism is not too far behind Communism in the condemnation of God and religion in the lives of the masses.

Democratic Socialists of Congress - Meet the Members
by JB Williams
Now that Americans are awake and confronting their tyrannical employees in the federal government, who are clearly hell-bent upon forcing a Marxist agenda, it’s time to name names so that the people easily identify who is directly responsible for the biggest assault on American freedom and liberty in US history. After decades of failed attempts to take over America via their third party initiatives that couldn’t break America’s two party system, leaders of both the Communist Party USA and Socialist Party USA chose a new strategy.

Obama Considers Real America ‘The Enemy’
by Christopher G. Adamo

The glaring duplicity in media coverage of the current chaotic “healthcare” debate is unparalleled. When a lone gunman shoots an abortionist, the nightly news incessantly recounts the event for weeks, insisting that the brutal action most certainly reflects a universal mindset among any and all who call themselves pro-life. But let the people of heartland America rise up in unprecedented numbers at Democrat “town hall” meetings and voice their sincere opposition to the attempt by Obama and the left to implement socialized “health care,” and they are derided as merely a loud but insignificant “fringe.”

I’ll Keep My Clunker
by Alan Burkhart
Now THIS is what I call cruisin'! One of President Obama’s great ideas for our country is that we should trade in our “clunkers” for modern fuel efficient cars. “Clunker” in this case is defined as anything that doesn’t get fuel mileage comparable to that of a bicycle, or perhaps an ox-drawn cart. My first concern with what I drive is safety, followed by comfort, the “fun factor,” and finally……. fuel mileage. A vehicle must deliver on all the former before the latter becomes a consideration. Sorry folks, but that’s just how it is.

Hostage Rescue – Clinton Style
by Paul R. Hollrah

American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, reporters for Al Gore’s Current TV organization, are now back on American soil. The two were captured by North Korean security forces in March of this year under circumstances that remain in dispute. They were charged with espionage, tried, and sentenced to 12 years in a labor camp. Were the women captured on North Korean soil or on Chinese soil? And why were they there? Perhaps these mysteries will now be solved. But what we may never know is the price that the Obama Administration paid for their release.

The War On Two Fronts
by Armand C. Hale

The average American citizen is realizing the federal government under the specter of Obama is cracking down on the country with an iron fist just like the old Soviet bloc countries. Government health care is being shoved at us, civil rights for all non-citizens, first amendment rights being stripped away from American citizens. How does the United Socialist States of America sound? CNN Host Lou Dobbs is under massive attack by illegal alien amnesty groups. They’re launching a multi-million dollar attack including attack commercials, web activism deployments along with far left power groups. They’re calling for Dobbs to be fired and the threat is real.

A Look at the Benefits From Control
by Doug Olvey
I happen to be a big believer in analogous reasoning. I was fortunate to study under a teacher who professed that in order to fully understand any proposition one had to be able to redress that proposition in all new clothing and see if there was a sound basis in principle.With government growth and control on a nose bleed track, I decided to try to find a way to truly look at the effects of what we are facing with some of this fire hose legislation. Okay, I hate traffic, hate paying high gas prices, hate making car payments, hate car maintenance, hate changing flat tires and hate driving long distances. So, I decided to take the new approach to health reform and dress it with my disdain for car ownership and see what could happen if the government suddenly decided to have “commuting reform”.

The Community is Organizing Against Obama Socialized Medicine
by JB Williams
The Organizer-n-Chief is so desperate to silence any and all debate on his plan to nationalize 1/7th of the US economy by confiscating control of the US health and insurance industry, that he has established a stool pigeon hot line on the White House web site, calling for his rat fink minions to narc out their neighbors if they dare to speak out against ObamaCare. Hitler and Goebbels would be proud of Obama’s flag@whitehouse.gov effort to track and silence his political opponents... But American citizens are just plain pissed off about it! Obama’s “brown shirt” effort to mobilize his labor union and ACORN thugs against his political dissenters is likely to result in outright violence. Sooner or later, one of Obama’s thugs is going to “get in the face” of the wrong angry citizen and when that happens, the talking will end and the violence will begin.

‘Birther’ Label Overshadows a Real Issue
by Frank Salvato
I have always been one to say that I cannot know the answer to the “birthers’” question of whether Mr. Obama is eligible to hold the Presidency. I can’t answer the question because I am being kept from examining the only documents that do exist to prove the point. To date, I have heard all the arguments and seen all the propaganda – from both sides of the issue – and for all the uproar there is only one way to know who is right and who is mistaken. But the “birther” issue is a literal smoke-screen issue and one that is covering up a much more serious one; one that threatens to produce a constitutional crisis.

Socialism vs. Health Care Reform
by JB Williams
Has anyone else noticed that the only proposal for “reforming” American health care is Obama’s Marxist government grab of 1/7th of the U.S. economy and the nationalization of yet another private American industry? Apparently... Democrat + Reform = Government Confiscation of an Industry Democrat “reform” of auto manufacturing meant Government Motors and federal control of auto manufacturing. Democrat “reform” of energy means government control of energy. In six months of unbridled Democrat rule, they have grabbed control of banking, investment houses, insurance companies, auto manufacturing and energy.

Conscience or Career?
by Alan Burkhart

More and more often we encounter news of an employee forced to choose between his or her job and performing an act which that person finds morally reprehensible. This occurs most frequently in the medical and pharmaceutical professions. Consider the case of Catherina Cenzon-DeCarlo, a nurse at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. According to a recent article in the New York Post: A Brooklyn nurse [Cenzon-DeCarlo] claims she was forced to choose between her religious convictions and her job when Mount Sinai Hospital ordered her to assist in a late-term abortion against her will.

Obama: Hope, Change, and Failure
by Paul R. Hollrah
Barack Hussein Obama has now occupied the Oval Office for just 185 days. Under normal circumstances we might expect that a new president, supported by strong majorities of his own party in Congress, might have accomplished at least something of value in that length of time… but he hasn’t. In fact, he has dug such a political and economic hole for himself and his party that whatever prospects they might have envisioned have been frittered away and his entire legislative agenda now appears destined to failure.

A Constitution in FULL Crisis, As the People Grow More Desperate
by JB Williams
America’s extreme left tricked American moderates into supporting their candidate last November by campaigning on post-partisan cooperation and transparency in government. Six months after the election of a freshman senator with a blank résumé, a laundry list of evil associates and a life more secret than your average CIA agent, Obama’s entire history remains a mystery and his administration is the most hardcore partisan dictatorship ever experienced in the USA.

A Constitution in Full Crisis II - Re-installing a Constitutional Fed
by JB Williams
I’ve been writing about all that is wrong in our country and how it went wrong for years now. Rather than repeating myself for benefit of those who have not been following along, please visit my archives and catch up with the rest of us. Now, for those of you who do realize that we are in a very real Constitutional Crisis here, which demands our immediate attention -- it’s time to get on with the business of discussing appropriate viable solutions... Treating the Illness instead of the Symptoms The symptoms of the illness gripping our nation today are many. The tendency is to react to those symptoms issue-by-issue, rather than looking at the root cause of those symptoms and addressing the illness itself, head on.

Obama throws old people ‘under the bus’ with Obamacare
by Vincent Gioia
"Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others" (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008). Would you vote for a person to be president if you knew when elected he would appoint someone who thought and said this, Obama did? The President appointed Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, to two key positions: health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research.

Obama Lied – The Economy Died
by Joan Swirsky
As President Clinton’s campaign mouthpiece James Carville put it so succinctly in the 1990s, “It’s the economy, stupid!” It was true then, it is true now. People may be temporarily seduced by intriguing figures and rosy promises but, bottom line, they still have to support their families and pay their bills. When the novelty of this or that politician has worn off and his or her pie-in-the-sky promises prove just so many hollow words, reality sets in.

A Government Run by Mrs. Kravitz
by Frank Salvato
If you are a Baby Boomer you, no doubt, remember the television series Bewitched, starring Elizabeth Montgomery. Ms. Montgomery played Samantha Stevens, a witch who was married to a mortal and who lived in a quintessential American suburb. One of the regular characters – and one of the funnier characters – was a neighbor of the Stevens', Gladys Kravitz, played by Alice Pearce and then Sandra Gould. Gladys Kravitz knew everything and nothing at all, all at the same time. Her advice was most always wrong and her opinion was most always uninformed but this didn't mean that she ever gave thought to not offering both to anyone and everyone with whom she came in contact. As I remember the character I can't help but think that we have a factionalist gaggle of Mrs. Kravitzs currently running our government.

Where is Deep Throat when you need him?
by Vincent Gioia
The indisputable fact is that Obama has not released his birth certificate which the state of Hawaii issues for all citizens born there. Instead, his campaign has only released his certificate of live birth from the state of Hawaii, which is a document that offers a summarized version of birth information that can be submitted by foreign born people. During the 2008 presidential campaign, GOP nominee Senator John McCain quickly released his birth certificate when liberal bloggers raised questions about his eligibility to be president. McCain was born at a military hospital in Panama. Obama could likewise put the matter to rest by releasing his actual birth certificate, which would show, among other things, the place of his birth and the doctor who performed the birth procedure.

Obama Utopia Built On Empty Promises
by Christopher G. Adamo
As the “healthcare” debate reaches its contrived crescendo, Barack Obama is proving to be the perfect con man. In every instance, he tells adoring crowds and media sycophants what they want to hear, often contradicting last week’s statements with this week’s damage control sound bite. And considering that his poll numbers have remained above single digits, it must be conceded that to some extent the ploy is working. Nevertheless, over time Obama’s vision for America has materialized. It is an ugly picture. Fantastic promises of lavish government provisions for every citizen (and non citizen) eventually reveal themselves to be a well-crafted veneer overlaying bureaucratic nightmares from which no law-abiding citizen can hope to escape.

We recognized the threat of Communism once; why can’t we recognize Islam as our enemy?
by Vincent Gioia
In the federal government, President Harry Truman's Executive Order 9835 initiated a program of loyalty reviews for federal employees in 1947. Truman's mandate called for dismissal if there were "reasonable grounds...for belief that the person involved is disloyal to the Government of the United States. Communism was considered an existential threat to the United States and the freedoms guaranteed by our constitution. The possibility of the overthrow of our government was considered real and needed to be guarded against.

The latest Obama outrage; controlling the internet
by Vincent Gioia
In the world of Obama there cannot be any dissent or criticism of the master designer (no, not God – President Barack Obama) and any attempts to impugn the Obama plans for “change” must be demolished. So if negativity comes from the internet, then of course the blogosphere must be added to litany of government control and censorship. The recent Obama intended appointment of Cass Sunstein, a Harvard Law professor, to the position of head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs is the next nail in the coffin of the First Amendment. In this position Sunstein will have powers that are unprecedented and very far reaching; not merely mind-boggling but with explicit ability to use the courts to stifle free speech if it opposes Obama policies.

Slouching Toward Orwell's 1984
by Jeff Lukens
George Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four" tells of an advanced world where there are no individual freedoms, and the state uses fear to manipulate and control people to conform to a prescribed belief. In the book, the Party maintains absolute power, and power has become an end to itself. His book is as relevant today as ever. In the age of Obama, the freedoms that define American life are slipping away and being replaced with ever more state control. Similar to Orwell's 1984, our personal possessions today are fast becoming only what the state allows us to have. Employment is found ever more within government. The Party (you know which one) is gaining control our health care, our cars, our insurance companies, our schools, and our banks. Let's just say they are gaining ever more control or our lives.

Thomas Jefferson vs. Barack Obama
by JB Williams

Since 52% of American voters were foolish enough to buy the story that Barack Hussein Obama is some sort of “liberal messiah,” I thought it would be interesting to compare the belief systems of America’s father of liberalism and author of our Declaration of Independence, with the Marxist belief system of the false messiah. And since today’s liberals have so much trouble properly interpreting our Founders’ simple message to future generations, I am under no illusion that these facts will carry anymore weight with modern Marxists than Article II – Section I of the Constitution, which clearly states that Barack Obama cannot be President of the United States. But for the rest of America, namely those who have been baffled by decades of leftist balderdash via the NEA’s academia and the state run media complex, a few real facts might help sort things out.

Taxpayers Own 60.8% of New GM - When’s our first Shareholder Meeting?
by JB Williams
The biggest bankruptcy in US history was also the fastest bankruptcy in US history. Isn’t it amazing how fast the government can move when they are motivated by a historic confiscation of private sector power and wealth? As of this morning, American taxpayers are now the majority shareholder in the newly created Government Motors, which will build the Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC and Buick brands looking forward. American taxpayers paid over $50 billion for 60.8% of GM. That money was used to save 66,000 American jobs. That comes to $757,575.76 per job saved. A little pricey if you ask me, but we are talking about union jobs here.

Amid All the Celebrity Deaths, A Reality Check
by Frank Salvato
Some have labeled the summer of 2009, the Summer of the Celebrity Death Watch, and one could successfully argue the point. Ed McMahon, Karl Malden, Farrah Fawcett, Billy Mays, David Carradine, Koko Taylor, Fred Travalena and, most notably, Michael Jackson – to name but a few off the top of my head – have all passed away over the course of June and July. While the mortality of a generation is always catalyst for priority re-evaluation and reflection, it is the caliber of “the catalyst” – those we have elevated to iconic status – that exposes just how superficial our American culture has become.

Obama Policy Promotes Marxism In Honduras
by Christopher G. Adamo
Among the most misbegotten blunders of the period leading up to the Second World War was that of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. Remembered for disastrous misjudgments during “negotiations” with Adolph Hitler, culminating in his almost comically ironic “Peace in our time” proclamation of September 1938, Chamberlain desperately sought to avoid direct conflict with Germany by appeasing the Nazi regime at any cost. In so doing, he exposed a weakness of personal fortitude and national will that only served to embolden the Reich.

Government Can Wreck but NOT Fix Economy
by JB Williams
Despite trillions in ill-advised and unfunded government “stimulus” efforts here and abroad, the world economy continues to slip further into the abyss and global socialists can’t figure out why their record wasteful spending isn’t causing the free-market to jump with joy. US President Barack Hussein Obama seems to be the slowest learner in the group... When socialist and communist countries try to slow down the communist spending spree coming from the US President, you have a real problem on your hands.

4th of July Tea Party
by Armand C. Hale
Another tea party has come, but not gone. The momentum is still building in the Lone Star state with other tea parties brewing everywhere! This event was held at the Rio Cibilo Ranch located at 1101 Ulrich Rd in Marion, Texas. Robin Juhl, chairman of the San Antonio Tea Party (SATP) bid all in attendance welcome.Ray Massey began the opening prayer and emcee Evan Sayet got things going. The list of speakers included; Dr. C.L. Gray, M.D. on health care reform, Katharine Moreno, Dr. Donald R. May, Sgt. John Shirley, Allan Parker, Mr. S. Joseph (Joe the plumber) Wurzelbacher and Mr. Marcus Luttrell author of “Lone Survivor”.

Time to De-Centralize American Power
by JB Williams

Drastic situations demand drastic measures. Democratic Socialists running Washington DC have the American people on their heels as they launch a continuous barrage of attacks on all fundamental American principles, values and rights. Their strategy of attacking on every front all at once makes it impossible for the average American to keep up, much less defend against the daily attacks on an issue by issue basis. Don’t waste another phone call or email on one of the 546 elitists in DC - all of whom are part of the problem. The people are the ONLY solution and they don’t need the approval of career political criminals to retake control of their country. They only need their silver bullet and the will to use it!

Of Flies and Men: The Bizarre World of PETA
by Paul A. Ibbetson
“Save the whales, save the snails!” Comedian George Carlin had it right when he talked about the audacity and craziness of some to misplace priorities on where to put a helping hand when it comes to people and the planet. When it comes to organizations that ‘break from the norm’ the most, when balancing the value between people and animals, PETA has to be near the top of the list.

Suckered by Obama
by Armand C. Hale
Not many people are reporting on the many amnesty bills before Congress this session. Obama is backtracking on his promises to the racist section of the Latino vote to pass amnesty this year. He has canceled several meetings and is down playing the importance of the latest scheduled meeting this last June 25. The open borders Latino organizations of the globalist regime which has hijacked the Executive Branch are about to freak out!

Setting New Standards with Online Education
by Nancy Salvato

“The full-time residential model of higher education is getting too expensive for a larger share of the American population.” (The College of 2020: Students) Is it any wonder “more and more students are looking for lower-cost alternatives to attending college?” What does the future hold for higher education? ▪ White students will likely be outnumbered by minority students on college campuses. ▪ People will need to rely on more and more formalized education to advance their careers or change to new ones. ▪ It is estimated that ten years from now, the average cost for a 4 year public college in-state resident will be $31,949.28 per year.

July 4th 2009: Celebrating the End of American Independence
by JB Williams
2009 marks the end of an era in which the United States of America led the world in prosperity, power, individual liberty and freedom. The US Constitution no longer stands as the cornerstone of freedom. The average American is no longer well suited for self-governance. The federal government no longer serves at the pleasure of the people and the states and the future of the greatest nation ever known to mankind, is beyond bleak.

When In The Course of Human Events...
by Frank Salvato
These are powerful and truthful words; words that officially launched a war; words that birthed a nation. These words, written by Thomas Jefferson and crafted with the collaboration of Benjamin Franklin and John Adams, brought forth to the world a country based on the philosophies of Cicero, Aristotle, Hobbes, Burke and Locke to name but a few; philosophies derived of a comprehensive understanding of Natural Law. Yet today, as people lay dead and dying at the hands of Islamist despots, simply because they dared to quest for freedom, the leaders of our nation – the elected caretakers of the beacon of liberty and freedom – stand indifferent to a call for solidarity; they exist deaf to the pleas for help.

Do Not Despair This 4th of July
by Ron Ewart
“And the rockets' red glare ..... the bombs bursting in air ..... gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.” As Francis Scott Key watched over the ramparts from his sloop, after visiting a British ship in an attempt to exchange a prisoner during the war of 1812, he penned the words of our Star-Spangled Banner that we sing in tribute to our freedom, our independence and to the flag that waves proudly throughout the land. But we in America today are not watching a foreign enemy attack one of our forts, or one of our cities with a military force, where crushing noise, death and destruction rain down on the inhabitants. What we are watching is the very destruction of our institutions of freedom ..... from within.

Did America Really Want This?
by Christopher G. Adamo

Throughout most of the two hundred and thirty three years since that first Independence Day, a significant number of Americans have indulged in the luxury of ignoring the entire political scene, caring not whether the particular administration in power leans left or right. This was mainly due to the forethought of the founders, who in their wisdom established binding limits on the actions of government through the Constitution. Therefore, regardless of who held the reins of power, deviations in the direction of the country would probably remain within safe perimeters.

“Domestic Terrorists” Gear Up For July 4th Tea Parties
by Joan Swirsky
On April 15, over a million people – who had already smelled the contaminated coffee of the Obama regime’s galloping socialism-cum-communism-cum totalitarianism – attended thousands of Tea Parties across the country. Sure enough, a day before the Tax Day demonstrations – which Obama’s Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the “president” knew nothing about – Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano issued a fatwa that declared the extraordinarily peaceful Tea Party attendees de factor “domestic terrorists” – including our military!

The Obama teleprompter lies about Obamacare
by Vincent Gioia

Obama describes his health care plan through his lying teleprompter and claims his plan will reduce healthcare costs and provide the same medical care we receive now. Obama has told us that if you want to keep your doctor, you'll be able to keep your doctor and if you want to keep your present health plan, you'll be able to keep your present health plan. If the Obama plan is enacted, a substantial portion of employers will cut their health subsidies by increasing employees’ share of contributions to the company plan so as to persuade some employees to take the public option of the Obama healthcare plan in exchange for the company provided insurance.

Americans! You do NOT want national health care! Take it from one who knows!
by Sandra Carney
During my years as an American Citizen, for you see once upon a time I was not one, but during these years that I have enjoyed life in this great free country, I have also been the recipient of the best medical care in the world. Yes, funded first by my husband’s company and then after he retired via private insurance...  Well, enough about all that is wrong with me … the whole point of what I want to share with my fellow Americans is my experience under National Health Care … for yes, once upon a time I was a British Citizen.

Betrayed by Congress with the Cap-and-Trade Bill
by Alan Caruba
Mark it on your calendar, June 26, 2009 was the date that the House of Representatives betrayed every American in the name of saving the nation and the Earth from global warming. It was the day that 219 Representative voted for the obscenely misnamed "American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009" Only eight Republican members of the House voted for it and 44 Democrats voted against it. The bill, some 1,200 pages, was not read by those men and women voting on it because they were not permitted the time to do or have their staffs do it. The co-author of the bill, Rep. Henry Waxman, admitted that even he did not know its full contents.

Saving America Is In Our Hands
by Armand C. Hale
Ever since I attended the last Tea Party, I’ve been trying to keep my ear as close to the political ground as possible. I attended a local grass-roots event that is trying to unseat a liberal congressman in our own district. What we are doing here can be used as a blueprint for Americans to take back our government from the socialist politicians in power at the local, state, and federal levels.

Obamacare: Do Or Die For America
by Christopher G. Adamo

With so much coverage of the current debate on Barack Obama’s attempt to impose nationalized healthcare on America, it may seem that little else can be said on the subject. Yet it needs to be discussed, and its manifold dangers explained to the American people. It is impossible to overstate the significance of this battle. If successful in establishing this pinnacle of his socialist agenda, Obama will unleash a “change” on the country from which it may never recover.

The Axis of Idiots
by J. D. Pendry
Jimmy Carter, you are the father of the Islamic Nazi movement. You threw the Shah under the bus, welcomed the Ayatollah home, and then lacked the spine to confront the terrorists when they took our embassy and our people hostage. You're the runner-in-chief. Bill Clinton, you played ring around with Lewinsky while the terrorists were at war with us. You got us into a fight with them in Somalia and then you ran from it. Your weak-willed responses to the USS Cole and the First Trade Center Bombing and Our Embassy Bombings emboldened the killers. Each time you failed to respond adequately, they grew bolder, until 9-11, 2001.

Genocide or Massacre, US Repeating Mistakes of the Past
by Frank Salvato

Reports coming out of Iran, limited though they are, state that a massacre took place on June 24, 2009, in Tehran's Baharestan Square. Iranian basij, club-wielding militiamen, savagely attacked pro-freedom protesters, throwing some of them off a pedestrian bridge. They attacked them with batons, tear gas, bullets and, in at least one location, axes. What was the catalyst for this slaughter? Their desire for liberty and freedom, rights guaranteed to every human being under Natural Law.

What Difference Can One TRUE Patriot Make?
by JB Williams
Ask Thomas Paine that question... or Thomas Jefferson, John Adams or James Madison! Ask Ronald Reagan... Before they stepped forward and made a difference, they were all just average Americans that nobody ever heard of before. We know their names only because of the contributions they made to freedom and liberty! As American patriots desperately search for a way to end the current Obamanation of our Constitutional Republic, and all of the freedom and liberty it provides, becoming increasingly intolerant and ready for battle; keep two things in mind...

Obama Re-Unites the States Via 2nd, 9th and 10th Amendment Measures
by JB Williams
Obama and his Marxist minions thought that the 2008 election gave them an unfettered mandate to dismantle our Constitutional Republic by establishing a One World secular socialist powerhouse in Washington DC, forever running roughshod over the people and the states without any worry of revolt or reprisal. They were horrifically mistaken! This is not democracy, its fascist totalitarianism, and our Founding documents provide the people a peaceful remedy. Our nation’s Founders not only anticipated a day when the federal government would become destructive of the desired ends, Life, Liberty, individual Freedom and Happiness, - they provided the mechanisms by which to thwart such evil and preserve freedom for future generations.

When is meddling not meddling?
by Vincent Gioia
The answer to the question depends on whether President Obama is talking about Iran or Israel. President Obama waffles about Iran and is “appalled” in the behavior of the Iran Super Leader toward the brave Iranian protesters as he decides whether strong condemnation may interfere with his plan to charm the Iranian leaders out of developing nuclear weapons but he has no qualms about bullying Israel. Our glorious leader, to use a phrase common in dictatorships like North Korea, is pressuring the Netanyahu government mercilessly to diminish Israel's security and to accept the terrorist group and Iran puppet Hamas as a negotiating partner...

Obamacare is too expensive but it’s even worse than that
by Vincent Gioia
Most Americans are quite satisfied with the way they receive medical care under the present system. Cost of medical care has risen but so has most everything else. If Americans are satisfied for the most part with their healthcare, then why must the entire medical care system be discarded, and on a rush basis at that? We also are told that millions and millions of people in America do not have medical insurance and the cost of healthcare is rising. We are also supposed to believe that these are such urgent matters there is no time to consider these and other problems in any sort of rational way?

Wanted! Fiscal Conservatives
by Dick McDonald
At last night’s meeting of the Los Angeles Republican Alliance (LARA), the First Vice-President of the San Fernando Valley Republican Club (SFVRC) jumped out of his seat after a few choice words for the President of the LARA and angrily stormed out of the meeting. This morning I open up the NYT and find that two potential Republican presidential candidates, John Ensign and Mark Sanford, are having extra-marital affairs. Are these incidents related – no. But they point out and endemic failure of politics in general and the Republican Party in particular – elevating men above principles is a tragic flaw Americans continues to make – see Obama.

An Open Letter to Shepard Smith, Fox News
by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired
Dear "Shep," I am a regular viewer of your program, specifically the evening news, since I work. I appreciate your show and the news you deliver. As one who watches Fox because of its Fair and Balanced coverage, It is most unsettling that you would refer to those who challenge Obama's eligibility as "right wing crazies." Your definitive statement, "there is no truth whatsoever that Obama is not a natural born citizen" is problematic. As one not given to "conspiracy theories" the larger issue surrounding Obama's eligibility strikes at the heart of the Constitutional underpinning of virtually all oath's of office at the Federal level, including Obama's.

An Open Letter To Our Nation’s Leadership
by Janet Contreras

This is the powerful letter read by Glenn Beck, in full, to open his TV show last Thursday: I'm a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me.

Our two-party system: the evil party and the stupid party
by Vincent Gioia
For sometime many of us have recognized that the Republican Party can no longer be regarded as a conservative party. Conservative M. Staunton "Stan" Evans explained how the two-party political system in the United States actually works – Evans said “there are only two parties in the United States, the ‘evil party’ and the ‘stupid party’." Unfortunately under the present system conservatives have no alternative and must support the Republican Party as the lesser of two evils. Most Republicans in congress view their job as trying to “compromise” or “get the job done” or “fix” or “tinker” or “propose alternate plans”...

The Path to the Future Requires a Return to the Roots
by Frank Salvato
As President Obama thunders ahead with his liberal agenda, unencumbered by any significant opposition in either chamber of Congress, the focus for the Right has been on how to re-invent the Republican Party so as to be competitive in the 2010 and 2012 election cycles. This renewed and urgent focus is more akin to a meeting of rival mafia families, each faction unwilling to cede influence, power, control or status to another, than it is a quorum of individuals dedicated to true and original Republican principles. In light of this it is appropriate to revisit the founding platform of the party.

Panetta Comment Telegraphs America’s Present Weakness
by Christopher G. Adamo
Once again, a prominent liberal Democrat is projecting his sordid political tactics and those of his party on the opposition. In an interview for next month’s issue of The New Yorker magazine, CIA Director Leon Panetta asserted that former Vice-President Dick Cheney might welcome another major terrorist attack on America, as a means of validating his criticism of misguided Obama Administration “security” policies.

It took God six days to create the world – not being God, Obama takes five months
by Vincent Gioia
Obama lies to the people and changes America into his own image. It hardly seems possible that Barack Obama has only been in office about five months. Even Adolph Hitler as head of Germany did not accomplish as much as Obama has in such a short time. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about the slaughter of people, I’m referring to how the government and the country was changed in mere months after taking office. The reason Obama has been able to do so much so quickly is that the checks and balances written into the Constitution don't always work.

You've Solved The Mystery
by David Jeffers
Email sent by Eddy Jeffers father to Fox News' Shepard Smith, who knows with certainty that Obama is a natural born citizen - or so he says.
Shep, I think you may have just won a Peabody Award! Good job old boy! To think you know that “there is no truth whatsoever” that Obama is not a “natural born citizen” means you absolutely saw his long form birth certificate. How in the world did you pull that off? And since you have such great inside information, could you please tell your audience in which hospital in Honolulu Barack was born and who the attending physician was?

Obama's 'Peace for Our Time'
Mark Alexander, Patriot Post.us

On 30 September 1938, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain addressed his countrymen in regard to the Munich Agreement, which assured Adolf Hitler that Britain would "wink and nod" at Der Fuhrer's annexation of western Czechoslovakia to satiate Germany's need for additional "living space." (Six months earlier, Hitler had annexed Austria, without so much as a whimper from Britain and France.) "So let there be no doubt: The situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. And America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own. ... Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance." That's The Obama Doctrine.

A Fear Worse Than Words
by Paul A. Ibbetson
Want to know what is worse than losing a long, grueling race for the White House? Don’t ask John McCain - ask Sarah Palin. Since the moment the Alaskan Governor decided to throw her hat in the ring as the 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate, she has re-defined what it means to be the candidate of the extreme. For conservatives, she injected a brief moment of pride, if not hope, in what was a more or less a pre-destined losing bid by John McCain to become the next president of the United States.

Obama Treason - Why Commander Fitzpatrick Is NOT Guilty of Mutiny!
by JB Williams

In my last column I point out the simple fact that one of two things is definitely true... Either Mr. Obama is indeed guilty of “treason” as the Commander has charged; (or) the good Commander in guilty of mutiny solely on the basis of accusing a sitting Commander-in-Chief with the high crime of “treason.” However, in order to be guilty of mutiny, Commander Fitzpatrick’s charges would have to be proven false. In order to be proven false, Obama’s secret files would have to be opened up for discovery, which explains why Obama has not charged the Commander with mutiny.

How Newt Gingrich Sabotaged The “Gingrich Revolution”
by Christopher G. Adamo
It is time to proclaim that the “Era of Reagan” is indeed dead, or at least the current “Country Club” version of the great former President, in which he has been completely reinvented. In their world, Ronald Reagan is a metaphor for the total abandonment of principle, under a perverted counterfeit of the “Big Tent.” Nor will those “moderates” let us forget Reagan’s Eleventh Commandment, “Thou shalt not criticize another Republican,” to which they should add, “Unless the criticism is directed at a conservative.”

With All Things, Facts & Truth Matter
by Frank Salvato

Few things are more important in life than the facts and the truth. Ironically, the quest for both has waned over generations. Today, fact and truth suffer the narcissism of a generation of self-indulgent ideologues who have sought to shape the world to their belief system, doing so armed with little more than falsely elevated self-esteem. The result has been to bring our great nation to a divide not seen since the US Civil War; a divide of politics, ideology and culture; a divide that threatens our Republic's very existence.

Obama’s three (of many) great lies
by Vincent Gioia
There are so many Obama contradictions it would take a professional to catalog them all. Even in the same speech Obama can say one thing and then announce something else in direct contradiction. The “government news media” as Rush Limbaugh like to call them, does not make any effort to call attention to these ‘Obamaisms’ and will do anything to suppress whatever Obama says or does that might open him up to criticism. Remarkably, this same news media howls when accused of bias.

Is Obama Guilty of Treason? Or is Commander Fitzpatrick III Guilty of Mutiny?
by JB Williams
The answer to one of the above questions is absolutely, YES! – Either Barack Hussein Obama is guilty of treason, as formally charged in a March 2009 federal criminal complaint filed by retired Navy LCDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, on March 17th, (or) LCDR Walter Fitzpatrick is indeed guilty of Mutiny. There is no higher authority for a U.S. Naval Commander than the superior office of Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces, the President of the Unites States. Yet, LCDR Fitzpatrick has publicly and formally charged President Barack Hussein Obama with the high crime of treason in a federal complaint filed with James R. Dedrick U.S. Attorney, Eastern District Tennessee, and Edgar Schmutzer, Dedrick's Assistant U.S. Attorney on March 17, 2009.

Obama the Cyber Snowman
by Paul R. Hollrah
In the short period of time that Barack Obama has occupied the public spotlight we have learned a number of important things about him. And although we have yet to learn if he is an American citizen, an Indonesian citizen, or if he holds dual US-British citizenship, we have learned one very important thing about his anatomy: if his lips are moving...chances are he’s lying. Never in the history of the United States have we ever witnessed a political regime so blatantly corrupt and dishonest. Throughout the campaign he quickly gained fame for saying whatever his audience of the moment wished to hear.

Necessity is the Mother of Invention
by Nancy Salvato
General Motors recently filed for bankruptcy. Mark Steyn writes in National Review, “GM has about 95,000 workers but provides health benefits to a million people: It's not a business enterprise, but a vast welfare plan with a tiny loss-making commercial sector. As GM goes, so goes America?” Fortunately, maybe this is not the case. Arnold Schwarzenegger, faced with a $24 million budget deficit, has “terminated” textbooks and is embracing digital books as well as other electronic devices that can be used for learning.

America descends into Marxism while Europe escapes socialism
by Vincent Gioia
For years Europeans were chastised by Americans for their slide into the Gomorrah of socialism while the United States remained the bastion of free market capitalism. That’s why it is with more than a little irony we now see European conservatism emerging while America plunges into the depths of a centralized economy where the government nationalizes major segments industry and banking with more to follow. Healthcare which comprises one seventh of our economy will soon be taken over by the hydra of government.

YOU SCARE ME     
Written by Lou Pritchett  
Dear President Obama,
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me. You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you. You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support. You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American. You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll...

Obama panders to Muslims and minimizes American military efforts to protect freedom
by Vincent Gioia

There is so much to talk about President Obama and what he is doing to the country someone like me who wants to get “the word out” would have to write an article every hour to address all of Obama’s statements, actions and America-destroying proposals. Now with Obama doing or saying something Anti-American in his effort to “change” the country so often, there is so much to report for all to become aware of that the shear volume of such things becomes the problem. Since it is the most recent manifestation of the Obama willingness to belittle America, let’s take a look at his pandering speech in Cairo.

The Supreme Court: Minority Activist Wanted
by Paul A. Ibbetson
President Barack Obama’s nomination of Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a New York Judge of Hispanic decent, has brought about another unique firestorm that may once again define the characteristic make-up of the new Obama administration. While many people have been concerned over Sotomayor’s derogatory statement, “I would hope that a wise Latina woman...,” others rightfully wonder if her decision to avoid addressing the affirmative action related fireman promotion case in New Haven Connecticut is another example of impaired judgment or, even worse, racial bias.

Sotomayor has decided that the Bill of Rights does not apply to the states
by Vincent Gioia
If you thought the Bill of Rights gives you constitutional protection for freedom of speech, of religion and a free press; you are wrong according to Obama Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor. The likely newest member of the high Court decided that all these rights guaranteed by the first Ten Amendments which make up the Bill of Rights can now all be taken away from us at the whim of our state legislatures - who would have imagined.

Tennessee Trained American Jihadist Guns Down Two Soldiers in Little Rock
by JB Williams
Two young American soldiers were gunned down as they took a five minute break outside a Little Rock Arkansas Army/Navy recruiting office. Pvt. William Long, 23, of Conway died, and Pvt. Quentin Ezeagwula, 18, of Jacksonville was seriously wounded. The shooter was a 23 year old African-American male calling himself Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad. He had given up his birth name, formerly known as Carlos Bledsoe, when he adopted his Muslim religion.

Sotomayor Qualifications: Why Bother With The Constitution?
by Christopher G. Adamo
As the confirmation ritual of Sonia Sotomayor continues to play out, it is becoming grimly apparent that the only relevant issue, her worthiness (or more accurately, her total lack thereof) as a guardian of the Constitution, will be no more of a consideration for Republicans than it ever was for Barack Obama. Flowery rhetoric and her heart-wrenching biography notwithstanding, if Obama ever had any concern whatsoever for the nation’s founding charter, he never would have nominated a radical judicial activist like Sotomayor in the first place.

Can we attend future GM stockholders’ meetings?
by Vincent Gioia
Since the government of the people owns 60% of Government Motors, formerly General Motors, I guess that means any or all of us can attend stockholders’ meetings. Hmm, I wonder where the meetings will be held. Although Obama said “What I have no interest in doing is running GM." Unfortunately Obama has a history of lying and saying one thing and doing another – so how can we believe Obama’s men won’t be calling the shots at the auto company at Obama’s direction?

Can only whites be guilty of racism? Is preference given to one race racism?
by Vincent Gioia
If you aren’t able to win at the ballot box fairly then you have to win unfairly because winning is everything when you want to change the country. We already know that Obama’s private community organizing army, ACORN, has corrupted the election process by obtaining fraudulent voter registrations; now we learn that it’s OK for Obama’s supporters to be more open in their support of Obama’s election by physically intimidating voters at the polls.

Winning through intimidation
by Vincent Gioia
Muslim appeasers seem like some Republicans; though Muslims want to blow up things American, Democrats want to blow up American institutions – when Republicans appease Democrats, as some will in voting to confirm Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, they will behave like Muslim appeasers. Democrats with help from their media house organs intimidate to get their way just as Muslims do. But as good as Democrats are at the intimidation game, they are nothing compared to Muslims who skillfully use the political correctness tool and outright threats of violence.

Hatch, Cornyn and Graham on Judicial Pantywaist Watch
by JB Williams

Democrats chose a presidential nominee strictly on the basis of his race. They were focused solely on “making history,” remember? That president has now chosen a Supreme Court nominee strictly on the basis of her race, once again, to “make history.” So why would you be shocked that the Obamanation press, are once again calling Republicans “racists..?”

The Sotomayor Nomination
by Paul R. Hollrah
Throughout the 2007-08 campaign the conventional wisdom was that the next president would be able to appoint no more than two associate justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, replacements for 89-year-old John Paul Stevens and 76-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is in failing health. Now, with the unexpected departure of Justice Souter, another of the four most liberal members of the court, it is clear that Obama will appoint no fewer than three new justices to the court.

Sotomayor is the wrong choice for the Supreme Court and Republicans should step up
by Vincent Gioia
Iran’s Ahmadinejad often speaks about the destruction of Israel and of the Jews, but if Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs were spinning for the Iranian crazy man he might say Ahmadinejad just used “a poor choice of words.” Having given that explanation, we should all be content and no longer criticize him.

Ten Reasons Sotomayor Should Not Be Confirmed
by Armand C. Hale
I generally support the idea of nominating a Latina woman to the U.S. Supreme Court, but not Judge Sonia Sotomayor. She is so biased; she should not be confirmed, for ten reasons:

Supreme Court nominee Sotomayor belongs to a subversive group and should be rejected
by Vincent Gioia

With the disclosure that Obama’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, is a member of La Raza, it’s appropriate to look at what La Raza stands for to understand Sotomayor’s mindset as she decides critical cases on the court.

Obama Only Interested in Bailing Out Union Buddies
by JB Williams
Obama is on the cusp of making American taxpayers the proud new bankrupt owners of what is now affectionately referred to as “Government Motors.” – As GM follows Chrysler into Fed forced bankruptcy, Obama’s economic guru has already worked out the details of how GM will emerge from bankruptcy court a wholly owned asset of the Fed.

Gitmo, Liberals, Politics & Deceit
by Frank Salvato
The debate over the disposition of the terrorist detainees currently housed in Guantanamo Bay's detention centers (Camp Delta, Camp Echo, Camp Iguana & Camp 7) rages on. The anti-war/anti-Bush contingent continues to call for the shuttering of the facilities while those in support of fighting the war against violent Islamist aggression challenge them on their alternative for the securing of the enemy combatants housed at the facility.

Cheney, Limbaugh, And The Liberal Paper Tiger
by Christopher G. Adamo
If the Republican Party does intend to incorporate the ideologies promoted last week by former Secretary of State Colin Powell it should first change its mascot from an elephant to a horse, specifically of the Trojan variety. Despite the seemingly impressive credentials that Powell proudly touted in defense of his “Republican” authenticity, his singular purpose has been to find the most advantageous strategic position from which to undermine the conservative agenda. And that place is within the Republican Party.

Circumnavigating the Rule of Law
by Nancy Salvato
The last I heard, the United States was not a signatory to the Law of the Sea Convention. Yet back in 1996, under President Clinton, we became signatories to an agreement with the Commonwealth of the Bahamas “concerning a cooperative Shiprider and Overflight Drug Interdiction Program for Joint Operations,” known as the 1996 Shiprider Agreement.

by JB Williams
Obama names appeals court judge Sonia Sotomayor as his first Supreme Court nominee, and like his first hundred days in office, the so-called “centrist” president has once again chosen the most far left option on the table as a replacement for the very disappointing Justice Souter.

by Vincent Gioia
Ever since Obama called for a new domestic army many people waited for the next shoe to drop after his election as president but who would have expected the jackbooted knocker on your door to come from the Federal Communication Commission – “I’m from the FCC and I’m here to confiscate your computer.”

by Paul R. Hollrah
American leftists are now forcing a public debate over the question of what constitutes torture. The political novice who now occupies the Oval Office finds it necessary to declassify all of the legal memoranda from the previous administration which describe the ten enhanced interrogation methods used to obtain information from jihadists captured on the field of battle. Yet, he refuses to release memoranda detailing information gained in those interrogations.

by Joan Swirsky
Imagine that you’ve learned in your local newspaper and on TV that a serial murderer is stalking and killing people in your community. Anxious and concerned for the safety of your family, you buy a gun. Then your worst nightmare happens. Lying in bed and drifting off to sleep, you hear a loud sound downstairs – the unmistakable explosion of your front door being battered down and the menacing footsteps of an intruder climbing the stairs to your bedroom. You cock your already-loaded gun, and when the thug lunges at you, you shoot.

The American Press Mainstream Treachery
by JB Williams

Honest unbiased reporting in the American news room has been so absent for so long that most Americans now seek information elsewhere. Americans no longer trust the free press to be their eyes and ears, to keep them abreast of the facts needed to make intelligent decisions about daily life or politics. Sadly, at this moment in history, even Russia has a more reliable free press than America.  If Americans don’t read foreign news sources, they have no clue what is going on in their own country, much less the world.

New credit card law does not address the problem of high interest rates
by Vincent Gioia
Amid all the glowing reports and Obama’s teleprompter taking credit for credit card reform is one glaring deficiency of the new law; it says nothing about interest rates credit cards may charge. One important element failed to survive the trip through Congress. The Senate rejected an amendment that would have capped the interest on credit cards. Putting a ceiling on interest and fees is something that should have been done and it wasn’t. Even the ridiculous cap Senator Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) proposed, capping total interest and finance charges at 36 percent, was shot down.

Get the Car You Want Now, Tomorrow You Get The Car Obama Wants
by Vincent Gioia
The most recent Obama proclamation in his fast track approach to expand government intervention in the lives of all Americans is announcement of national standards for fuel efficiency required for cars. Very likely many Americans will see this as a good thing; after all, who doesn’t want to have a car with good gas mileage, especially as gasoline costs continue to rise. But as good as all this may sound we shouldn’t be fooled about the real Obama motivation.

Clinton Tried – 3000 Died - Obama to Appease Again!
by JB Williams
As Americans honor their fallen heroes who fought and died for freedom and liberty here and abroad, Obama tries to recover from the strongest rebuke to date. Even hardened leftist Democrats who label American soldiers “terrorists” and US war prisons “gulags,” now oppose Obama’s blind political maneuver to close Club Gitmo. But despite an all but unanimous congressional rebuke of Obama’s plan to close Gitmo, the Dictator-in-Chief promises to ignore congress and close it anyway.

Homosexual Activists Taking Aim at Proposition 8
by Armand C. Hale
Two amendments have been proposed in California to overturn Prop 8, the noted pro-marriage measure approved recently by voters. One is an amateur effort by students which would abolish marriage itself. The second is more formidable, because it has already been filed. Do these amendments have a chance of being approved by the voters? Have the wave of protests, name-calling, threats to people, and anguished appeals changed California’s opinions on marriage? The answer is "No," according to two new polls.

Obama, Cheney & The Bright Shiny Thing
by Frank Salvato

It couldn't have been planed more perfectly. President Barack Obama uses the power of the presidential bully pulpit to show his dismay with anyone and everyone who dares to question his version of morality where the war on terrorism is concerned. Just moments later, former Vice President Dick Cheney effectively rebuts the president and dismantles several of the president's talking points. The “impromptu” tele-debate made for great television. What it didn't do was move anyone to question what they believe on the issues that were presented. In fact, it simply ensconced each to his or her position.

The Desperate Democrat Facelift
by Christopher G. Adamo

All is not rosy on the political left. Barely four months into the Obama Administration and America’s grassroots is thoroughly fired up. Democrat leaders, while largely pretending to ignore the effervescing public sentiments or denying their significance on the nightly news, clearly are becoming nervously aware of the situation. Once again, a major effort is underway to change or camouflage the reality of the liberal agenda, since in its real form it will only outrage and alienate a majority of the population.

Anti-American Party in Power vs. Whom?
by JB Williams
At this point, every American knows that today’s Democrat Party is the anti-American political party in the United States. Run by the Democratic Socialists of America and their Progressive Caucus, funded by the anti-free market international proletariat cabal, DNC collectivism for the greater communal good rules the day. If you are truly “American,” you don’t really need me to list all of the hard left leaps of the last 110 days... But where is the American Party that stands for founding American principles and values of personal freedom and individual liberty?

Death and Dishonesty: A Jaunt through the Killing Fields of Abortion
by Paul A. Ibbetson
As is often the case with issues of morality in the U.S., there appears to be a moment in time when the public collectively centers its attention on issues the media, and other elements of the liberal establishment, would just as soon keep quietly pushed aside. At this moment in time, the issue of abortion is receiving public attention because of President Obama’s visitation to Notre Dame and the president’s pro-abortion stance versus the Catholic college’s pro-life biblical foundations.

Obama’s Jewish Problem
by Joan Swirsky
In times past, coalminers working in the depths of the earth took along caged canaries. As long as the canaries warbled, the miners knew they were safe from the methane and carbon monoxide that would kill them in minutes. But when the tiny songbirds stopped singing, the miners knew to run for their lives. Jews have always been the canaries in the coal mines of civilization, serving as a warning of impending doom to those who believed, as Churchill said, that the crocodile – of tyranny – would eat them last.

Nancy Pelosi: Damaged Beyond Repair
by Frank Salvato
Well, well, well...it would seem that Nancy Pelosi has outed herself as a liar...a disingenuous, political opportunist, hell-bent on making sure that her ideology is placed above the importance of honesty and good government. It is stunning that the White House and the Democrat leadership haven't counseled her to limit her media liability. With each session at the podium, Pelosi either changes her story, creates another firestorm or both. Had she been a Republican her resignation would have already been filed.

Do we need to Waterboard Pelosi?
by JB Williams
According to investigative DC journalist Bill Sammon, “Nancy Pelosi was told about waterboarding, and now she has been caught in a lie. The jig is up; she will be out of power within weeks.” Is she telling the truth? After 40 some top level intelligence briefings and a year long 9/11 Commission investigation and report concerning the failure of the intelligence community to stop 9/11, was Pelosi lying when she said we needed more aggressive intelligence powers to prevent further terror attacks? Or is she lying now?

Religious Freedom versus Parental Responsibility
by Alan Burkhart
For generations, free nations have recognized the individual’s right to believe and worship as he or she sees fit. In the United States it is considered to be among our most sacred constitutional protections. Our own Declaration of Independence makes a direct and undeniable link between our nation’s religious heritage and the basic human rights Americans hold dear. How unfortunate it is then, that in recent times we have seen an upswing in cases where religious freedom and human rights have come to be at loggerheads.

Absurd Liberal Debate Endangers America
by Christopher G. Adamo
In the days immediately following 9-11, the primary concern among American liberals was not how to prevent subsequent attacks, but how to avoid becoming the objects of any recriminations. With the corruption and malfeasance of the Clinton years still fresh in the minds of Americans, few doubted the link between Clinton Administration ineptitude and the opening it presented to America’s enemies. Liberal sensitivity on the topic was extreme.

How America Lost its Freedom
(and What Americans MUST Do to Get it Back)
by JB Williams

It’s now clear to most Americans that their country is not only headed in the wrong direction, but on the brink of complete extinction. In just the last six months, every major economic sector is speeding towards bankruptcy and the Fed has spent trillions in printed funny money, in an unbridled and ill-fated effort to buy up (not bail out) America’s free-market economic system, leaving the nation, its currency, its people - and yes - FREEDOM, headed towards imminent total collapse.

The Veterans Healthcare Commitment Act
by Armand C. Hale
I previously wrote an article on the open attack on Veterans Health Care by the new administration, which placed a priority on cutting “Tri Care for Life” from the congressional budget. In response to this outrageous proposal to provide "universal healthcare" for all Americans on the backs of U.S. servicemen and women, U.S. Congressman Todd Tiahrt (R-Kan.) introduced the Veterans Healthcare Commitment Act of 2009.

The People Move to Defend Against Runaway Fed
by JB Williams
Upon taking office, much of the nation was prepared to give the incoming Obama administration a chance, despite a laundry list of well founded doubts. On his first day in office 44% of Americans strongly approved while only 16% strongly disapproved of the new president. But it would be a very short honeymoon. Immediately, the Obama administration started making all the wrong moves. Little more than a hundred days later, only 35% strongly approve as he has already lost the confidence of many who voted for him and 30% now strongly disapprove.

It’s going to be a long four years
by Vincent Gioia
Is it just me or are others also tired of seeing Barack Obama and hearing his teleprompter? It seems Obama makes a TV appearance almost every day in person or on the TV news reels. Watching him is difficult to avoid if you want to keep up with news, even on Fox and other cable channels. Obama is still revered by the press and most talking heads despite his incredible record of lies and misleading comments.

GPS Marking EVERY Front Door - Part II: A United Nations Mandate?
by JB Williams
On April 29, 2009, I released Part I of this column, which resulted in a firestorm of interest in the story behind current Census Bureau efforts to capture and record the GPS coordinates of every private residence in the United States. Despite Fed assurances that “the Census Bureau cannot share any private information about you with anyone else,” a lie parroted by every leftist Obama minion under the sun, including in the mainstream press, the GPS coordinates marking taking place in America today is a project being coordinated with the always reliable and pro-American United Nations, and we should assume, all of it’s member nations.

Obama wants to “close tax loopholes” to flex government muscle
by Vincent Gioia
Newspapers are full of Obama’s “crackdown” on so-called tax loopholes; but is Obama trying to bring more money into government coffers or is he just asserting the power of government against those who have won “life’s lottery” and “spreading the wealth?” Obama has announced that his tax plan would eliminate some tax deductions for companies that earn profits in countries with low tax rates and change the burden of proof when taxpayers are accused of violating tax laws. Obama wants the courts to consider U.S. citizens who use tax havens such as the Bahamas or Cayman Islands to be guilty of violating U.S. tax laws.

Meet the National Council for a New America
by JB Williams

In an April 30, 2009 press release, House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) issued a welcome statement announcing the formation of the National Council for a New America, which is reportedly a forward-looking, grassroots caucus intended to bring together Congressional leaders and the people, with a national panel of “experts.” But just as Soetoro supporters should have enquired before the last election, one must ask Cantor and his group, “what kind of change?” and “who are these experts?” I wonder if they know that it’s the “old America” we are after?

Special Report: New DHS Counter-Terrorism Initiatives
by JB Williams
At a time when the US Administration refuses to refer to the international War on Terror as a “war on terror,” is busy releasing known Islamic Terrorists detained at Guantanamo Bay Cuba, and is using millions in taxpayer revenue to fund terror organizations such as Hamas in the Palestinian territory, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been busy redefining “terrorist” and setting it’s counter-terrorism sights upon a new set of targets.

An Odd Suggestion for Souter's Replacement: Overturn Roe v Wade?
by James F. Pontuso
President Obama will soon make his first nomination to the Supreme Court in order to replace retiring Justice David Souter. Since Justice Souter almost always votes with activist justices, the nomination will not tip the balance on the most controversial issue facing the Court - the difficulty of balancing a woman's right to abortion and a fetus's right to stay alive.

Obamanation Cannot Be Stopped!
by JB Williams
But they CAN be Debunked, Defunded, Derailed and Deposed. The Obamanation is steamrolling over the American people, the US Constitution, freedom and liberty and the momentum is clearly on their side at the moment. Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals have already proven to be extremely effective when used by very extreme people on a do-or-die quest for extreme central powers... In my opinion, the momentum is so much on their side, that there is quite literally NO means of stopping them. If you step in their way, you will simply get run over. This does NOT mean that there is nothing you can do, however.

Will GOP Follow Moderates Into Oblivion?
by Christopher G. Adamo
Republican stalwarts are fond of recalling the 1992 Democrat National Convention, and the manner in which Bob Casey Sr., the Governor of Pennsylvania, was prevented from giving a speech on account of his strident pro-life views. Here was the incontrovertible proof that Democrats censor and oppress those who do not toe the party line. What is rarely recalled is that, four years later in the Republican National Convention, the official party policy was to avoid any mention whatsoever of the entire abortion issue.

Radical Islam By Any Other Name...
by Frank Salvato

Honesty and transparency in government are rare commodities, especially in the United States. While some information is legitimately kept from the public for reasons of national security, still other information – and quite a lot when the information flow from the Obama Administration is concerned – is either kept from the public or manipulated for the public's consumption, having been so for ideological and/or political purposes. The subject of radical Islam and the terrorism that jihadis use as their chief tactic to bring about political “change” is not immune from these politically and ideologically opportune manipulations.

Enough Change Already
by Armand C. Hale
Obama & Co. have been throwing so much change at Americans, the average citizen can’t keep their heads above it all. This is more than anyone wanted or could have even imagined in this country. Here is just a small amount of “change” that the new kid at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is fostering:

Obama Didn’t Know Nuthin’ Of The Tea Parties – But The Rest Of The World Did!

An amazing thing happened on Wednesday, April 15th, Tax Day, when nearly a million people took hours off from their workdays – many sacrificing pay cuts and even the threat of being fired – to attend thousands of Tea Parties across America.

Celebrating the Exit of a RINO, Cheering as Rome Burns
by Frank Salvato
With the defection of the traitor Specter from the Republican Party came cheers from the hard Right. “We are better off without him,” they said. “We're flushing the RINOs from the party,” they asserted. “The Left can't blame us anymore for what government does,” they exclaimed.

Republicans need to return to their conservative principles
by Vincent Gioia
The party change by Arlen Specter highlights a problem the Republican Party has had for a long time. There are too many in the Party who disavow the basic tenets and principles that should distinguish Republicans from Democrats.

Miss USA And The Ugly Counterculture
by Christopher G. Adamo

It may seem odd that the profundity of Martin Niemoller could find a fitting application in the unlikely venue of a beauty pageant. But such is the depths to which America has descended as prominent members of its counterculture exercise ever-greater influence on society.

Obama and ACORN GPS Marking EVERY Front Door in America?
by JB Williams
Republican Senator Judd Gregg was Obama’s first choice for the Secretary of Commerce post, and Gregg was actually considering joining the Obama team, until he found out that control of the US Census was being stripped from the Commerce Department and placed under the direct control of White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel.

When the Obama Backlash Comes
by Jeff Lukens
Public opinion can be very fickle. Barack Obama has ridden a positive wave of opinion all the way to the White House. The public has welcomed him into office in that same spirit of hope in which he ran. Since the inauguration, however, the president is showing he has different plans than the ones he spoke about during the campaign.

The House Cleaning has Begun! As Specter Takes Flying Leap...
by JB Williams
79 year old five term Pennsylvania traitor Arlen Specter is the first casualty of the 2010 house cleaning. Never in US history, has the anti-incumbent sentiment been so broad and deep among frustrated American patriots who still believe in Life, Liberty and the Right to individually define and pursue Happiness

Specter: An Opportunist Guilty of Political Treason
by Frank Salvato

US Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) announced this week that he was switching political parties. Initially he said that he was doing so because he didn't want to be "judged by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate," the same electorate he courted in his last election. But later, after he realized his statement depicted him as an ungrateful political opportunist.

Somali Jihad threatening to cross the border into Kenya
by Eric Dondero
A major foreign policy development is challenging the new US administration; ironically from a region where Obama has strong familial, political and ethnic ties. As the Washington Post and other news sources have been reporting, the radical Islamic group Al-Shabab is now tightening control over all of southern Somalia, eliminating the last remaining strongholds of government forces.

A 100-Day Report Card
by Paul R. Hollrah
Across the nation, Obama Kook-Aid drinkers in the mainstream media are attempting to put the best possible face on Obama’s first 100 days in office. It’s not an easy task. For example, on Friday, April 24, the Associated Press carried a story by writer Liz Sidoti that is so far removed from reality that it bears closer analysis.

The U.S. Constitution has one big flaw
By Vincent Gioia
It is agreed among most of us that the creators of the U.S. Constitution did an amazingly competent job to protect individual rights and limit the national government’s role in our lives. Of course for at least the last 50 years or so socialists parading as liberals have managed to thwart the original intent of the Constitution throughout all three branches of government.

In Just 100 Days

January 20, 2009, Barack Hussein Obama became the 44th president of the United States. Our most recently elected president has been presiding in what is commonly referred to as the “honeymoon period”, the beginning of a new president's term in which the chief executive enjoys generally positive relations with the press and Congress.

They Just Don’t Get It
by Armand C. Hale

Once again this administration is showing its ignorance, arrogance and vial disrespect to the American consumer as it refuses to understand and acknowledge the symbiosis between gas prices and economic stability.

Dear anti-American Leftist Wingnut
by JB Williams
Those who were ignorant enough to buy into the idea that Barack Hussein Obama was American, black, Christian or moderate, clearly need a little help with proper interpretation of Obama political rhetoric... I’m here to help! Try to stay focused... Remember that your goal is to destroy America, not just Bush...

The Token President’s Token Budget Cuts
by JB Williams
Clearly, Resident-in-Thief Barack Obama’s ascension from neophyte political nobody with missing birth certificate, a blank résumé and college records more Top Secret than CIA interrogation files, was indeed “historic.” Equally clear is the fact that the alleged “political messiah” is a token leader entirely led by others.

Obama and Democrats outdo themselves with HR-1913
by Vincent Gioia
If you thought you had heard all the bad news coming from the Obama administration and a Democrat packed congress, you were wrong. Two weeks ago, Representatives John Conyers (D-MI) and Mark Kirk (R-IL) quietly re-introduced the so-called hate crimes bill--H.R. 1913, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009. It is now expected that on Wednesday April 22, the full US House Judiciary Committee will vote on H.R. 1913, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009.

Obama’s Peeps! Castro, Chavez, Alinsky and Ayers
by JB Williams
A few weeks ago, the Obama administration made it clear to the world, that they do not consider people like Bin Laden, or organizations like Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad or Hamas, to be “terrorists” and went so far as to rename the international “war on terror,” the “overseas contingency operation,” so as not to further offend any of these folks. Then, his Department of Homeland Security issued a new “terror report” redefining “terrorists” to include legal American citizens openly opposed to illegal immigration, abortion, socialism, and people who trample on their First, Second, Ninth and Tenth Amendment Rights.

Corrupting the 2010 Census
by Paul R. Hollrah
In a February 7, 1894 speech on the floor of the Unites States Senate, Senator George F. Hoar (R-MA) said the following: “Wherever there is a crevice in our protection of the freedom of the ballot, there you will find the Democratic Party trying to break through... Nothing much has changed in the 115 years since Senator Hoar publicly “pinned the tail on the Democrat donkey.” In fact, things will soon get much worse if Barack Obama is allowed to have his way with the 2010 census. For the past 155 years, Democrats have used every conceivable kind of fraud, violence, and intimidation to win elections; the one crime they have not attempted before is the corruption of the U.S. Census.

America’s Tea Parties
by Armand C. Hale (At the Texas Alamo)
I had the opportunity of a life time to attend one of the many tea parties that were all over the country on April 15, tax day. For those of you that couldn’t attend, here is my personal observation of one event. I was lucky to find covered parking. I paid the toll and proceeded to the gathering site. The estimated crowd there was 16,000 people, Americans’ from all walks of life. Glenn Beck and Ted Nugent were just a few of the guest speakers at the tea party.

The Left Is Making a Mistake in Ridiculing the Tea Parties
by Frank Salvato
The political Left in the United States is making a grave mistake in diminishing and dismissing the anger of the American people. Where it may be common place for liberals, Leftists, neo-Marxists and Progressive-Leftists to take to the streets over anything and everything, including a change of wind direction, it is entirely a different story with conservatives and Republicans. Conservatives and Republicans don't march in the streets for anything. The fact that they have now taken to the streets in protest of massive government spending and government's encroachment into our liberties speaks volumes to those who would listen.

Obama flip-flops on Durban II
by Vincent Gioia
On April 20-24, 2009, in Geneva, Switzerland, the United Nations will host the "Durban Review Conference," – a follow-up to the 2001 UN World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance (WCAR). As mandated by the UN General Assembly, the Human Rights Council of the United Nations (UNHRC) is responsible for organizing and convening the event "towards the effective and comprehensive implementation" of the conclusions and recommendations of WCAR, and to continue the "global drive for the total elimination of racism."

Wyoming Tax Day “Tea Party” Speech
by Christopher G. Adamo
This week’s column is a major departure from the style and format of previous columns. It is a transcript of my speech to the “Tax Day Tea Party” gathering held on the steps of the State Capitol Building in Cheyenne Wyoming. Reclaiming Our America Today in Cheyenne, and all across our great nation, real American patriots from the grassroots have gathered together to express their outrage over the abuses being committed by the federal government and within our public institutions.

The Founders were “Domestic Terrorists” According to Obama’s DHS
by JB Williams
In an April 7, 2009 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) “declassified” report on the “Top Threats” to American security titled, Rightwing Extremism, DHS explains how our nation’s Founding Fathers would have certainly qualified for Obama’s definition of “domestic terrorists” and “rightwing extremists.” In fact, most Americans qualify!

Our Presidential Dilemma
by Paul R. Hollrah
Looking back over the past half century, the quality of leadership in the executive branch of the U.S. government has been a “mixed bag,” at best. Jack Kennedy’s father bought the 1960 election for him, paying Chicago organized crime figures to deliver the Democratic vote, and hence, the Illinois electoral vote. And once in office, the Kennedy family wealth underwrote an endless public relations tour de force that was more fairy tale than reality, but which captured the hearts and minds of liberals and Democrats hungry for something or someone to look up to.

Obama’s Incurable Nausea
by Joan Swirsky
In the panoply of human ailments, few compare to chronic nausea, the overwhelmingly sickening feeling that you’re going to throw up at any minute. So revolting is this gagging-in-the-throat feeling that anything associated with it – a hamburger, a chicken dish, or even yogurt that made you sick – is enough for anyone to forswear this-or-that food forever. For the past several decades, it is clear that the Left has suffered from this malady – this chronic unrelenting nausea – that seems only to be relieved by their periodic explosions of verbal vomit. What is making them so sick? What exactly can’t they stomach? In a word, America!

The Elephant in the Room: Obama vs. United States
By Rick Santorum
The president is contemptuous of American values. And one key nominee prefers the judgment of other countries and global elites. Watching President Obama apologize last week for America's arrogance - before a French audience that owes its freedom to the sacrifices of Americans - helped convince me that he has a deep-seated antipathy toward American values and traditions. His nomination of former Yale Law School Dean Harold Koh to be the State Department's top lawyer constitutes further evidence of his disdain for American values.

Patriots MUST Reclaim the GOP Now Or Lose Their Nation
by JB Williams
While the US press holds the nation spellbound with their BREAKING NEWS! - #Obamas Welcome New White House Dog, the BIGGEST stories in American history, remain unreported. According to a recent Rasmussen Report, only 53% of Americans still believe that capitalism (aka economic freedom), is better than socialism (aka economic tyranny). 20% now firmly prefer socialism, and 27% aren’t too sure which is better today. (See report here Just 53% Say Capitalism Better Than Socialism)

Naming the Enemies Within Our US Congress
by JB Williams
The same old Communists, with the same old communist agenda, but a new friendlier face called “progress,” now control the US government. The time has come to name names! Think I’m kidding? Connect the obvious dots! While the leftist American press kept public attention focused upon Obama’s International Apology Hajj, working around the clock to put a positive spin on Obama’s failed Throw America Under the Bus Tour abroad, another important and equally dastardly trip was taking place below the average American’s radar...

Obama's European Tour: Arrogance, Ineptness & an Abdication of Leadership
by Frank Salvato
Many observations have been made regarding President Barack Obama's recent trip overseas. Most of them have been quite severe and rightly so. His many “appearances” bore a striking resemblance to his nauseatingly long campaign for the presidency; a campaign devoid of specifics and substance and rich with swagger and rhetoric. Note to President Obama: The campaign is over and – as you like to throw in the faces of the Republican opposition in Washington DC – you won. It's time to lead.

Consequences Of An ‘American Idol’ Presidency
by Christopher G. Adamo
Few among the general public noticed during the 1990s as America’s intelligence apparatus was methodically undermined and dismantled by such officials of the Bill Clinton Administration as Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick. During the same period, Clinton Energy Secretary Hazel O’Leary was busy obliterating color-coded security badges at the Los Alamos nuclear lab in New Mexico, and taking other outrageous measures that compromised America’s vital technology for the sake of “political correctness.” Consequently, America’s missile and nuclear technology hemorrhaged to the Communist Chinese.

Obama ready to give away the store
by Vincent Gioia

It’s bad enough that despite the clear wording of the Constitution that only Congress has the authority to “coin money”, this power was given to a national bank never intended or conceived by the country’s founders. The Federal Reserve Bank is a national bank with private ownership never actually overseen or even audited by Congress on behalf of American citizens. Now under the most socialist-minded president in our history control of the country’s banking system will be delegated to an international authority if President Obama has his way.

Obama’s International Apology Hajj: The Global Populism Campaign
by JB Williams
Obama: Dear kind anti-American world, America has been terrible for 232 years. Even my wife was ashamed to be an American until recently, last November to be specific. I’m king now, my wife is proud of American for the first time in her life, and I’m with you on the subject of “bad arrogant America” and that horrible man, George Bush. We all hate America and Bush. We can build upon this common ground. For the first time in world history, you can now like and trust America, because I’m not George Bush.

The Drug War is Lost
by Paul R. Hollrah

Each year for the past forty years our presidents have asked for more and more money to fight the War on Drugs. The Congress has dutifully complied and when each of the last seven presidents left office they’ve left behind a far worse drug problem than when they began. So if it is true that “insanity” can be defined as making the same mistake over and over again, always expecting a different outcome, then our decades-long battle against drugs has been truly insane.

Defining Article 2, Section 1 in Context
by Nancy Salvato
According to Article II, Section 1 of the United States Constitution, no person except a “natural born citizen” (citizen at birth) shall be eligible to the office of President. The question that needs to be answered definitively is what exactly is a “natural born citizen”? To understand this phrase, we need to look at the context in which it was written.

The real story of AIG
by Vincent Gioia
AIG has been in the news a lot these days. At the beginning of the AIG saga the Fed said it was too big to allow it to fail and so billions were given to “save” the company. Of course this failed and still more money was thrown their way. With all the attention given to AIG I think it is interesting to learn a little more about the company.

The Notre Dame Response
by Armand C. Hale
On Sunday May 17, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. Barack Obama will be the principal speaker and recipient of an honorary doctor of laws degree at the University of Notre Dame’s 164th University commencement ceremony. Obama is a fervent abortion supporter, dedicated to strike down every possible restriction on abortion including partial birth abortion and to reinstate federal funds on a worldwide scale.

The Two-Faced Brutality of Hope & Change
by Frank Salvato
As the leaders of the G20 assembled in London to discuss the economic woes of the world, so too came the dregs of the Earth. Under the ruse of assembling as tolerant, engaged and caring members of society – activists concerned with war, the environment and the economic crisis – anti-war activists, eco-zealots, anti-Capitalists and anarchists descended on the city by the Thames causing havoc, damaging property and, in one specific instance, interfering with life-saving emergency treatment of one of their own.

Changing our form of government without amending the Constitution
by Vincent Gioia
It is generally agreed the U.S. Constitution is a remarkable work of political art; it created a unique form of government with three separate branches and checks and balances designed to maintain a balance of power. It specified certain powers of the federal government and reserved all others to the states and the people.

Who Will Resurrect Conservatism?
by Christopher G. Adamo
With the dawn of each new day, America is affronted by yet another outrage from the Obama Administration and its lackeys on Capitol Hill. In response, the people of the heartland are increasingly vocal in their anger and opposition to the premeditated dismantling of our once-great country.

Our “Road to (financial) Hell” is paved with gold for the likes of George Soros
by Vincent Gioia
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, the man who President Obama said the United States could not do without despite his record of tax cheating, has come up with the “Big Sham;” a plan to reward fat cat investors who are Democrat supporters (or who will be) at tax payer expense. Geithner's so-called Public-Private Partnership Program is a sham.

The Icarus Factor
by Paul R. Hollrah

Any objective analysis of Barack Obama’s qualifications to serve as President of the United States, compared to any one of his forty-three predecessors, would place him squarely at the bottom of the list. He was elected to the presidency: a) because the one-third of our non-African American population who identify themselves as Democrats were so consumed with Bush hatred that they simply didn’t care...

America’s Eyes Wide Shut!
by JB Williams

As each day of the new administration passes, the American taxpayer is driven deeper in debt, American savings, investment and retirement accounts lose more value, Washington DC leftists seize more control over private industries and private assets, and today, the Obama administration is directly engaged in the day to day management of multiple private corporations and industries. Still, the average American has allowed a false sense of hope to trump simple common sense, which is clearly no longer common in America.

California and Obama lead the way to bankruptcy
by Vincent Gioia
The similarities are amazing. Is Schwarzenegger trying to implement the president’s agenda in California? Some of President Obama’s critics say he wants to turn America toward European-style socialism but Arnold has been trying to do that for years. California, once had robust capitalism, economic growth and a sunny optimism to match the weather, but it has become a pitiful giant state with a population and budget greater than a lot of countries – it is being destroyed by the same kind of big government that Obama envisions for the country.

A Revolution without a Leader
by JB Williams
Millions of Americans see what is happening to their nation. Many saw it coming and did their civic duty, campaigning and voting against it in 2006 and 2008, but to no avail. With the people paralyzed by the post-election prospect of their worst fears coming true, economic calamity, explosive growth of a dangerously abusive power-drunk federal government, a multi-generational future of record breaking taxpayer debt as far as the eye can see, and an administration rushing to confiscate control of private industry after private industry, individual freedom and liberty seem nothing more than lost ideas of the past.

Will Republicans Seize The Moment?
by Christopher G. Adamo

It daily becomes more and more difficult for any but the most stalwart leftists to ignore or deny the grim visage of the "change" being inflicted on America by the liberal/Democrats. Like a script from a revolutionary handbook, the key players in Washington, all on the left, are shredding the Constitution, while twisting and contorting current law, or completely ignoring it when needs be, in order to further mutate this once-great nation into a withered collectivist caricature of its former self.

The United States of America Is Not a Democracy
by Frank Salvato
The word Democracy does not appear in the Declaration of Independence or the United States Constitution...and for good reason. The United States is not a Democracy. It is a Constitutional Republic and it is essential that the American people understand this reality. If we continue to allow the untruth that the United States of America is a Democracy to flourish we invite the demise of our government and our nation; we invite the cessation of the American Experiment and doom future generations to a fate unknown.

Volunteerism & Charity
by JB Williams
The federally run and labor union controlled public education system has so successfully dumbed down the American population, that the average American no longer even knows the definition of the word “mandatory,” much less the words Marxism, Socialism or Communism. “Mandatory” removes any need or opportunity for the giver’s consent. It means that these things are mandated by federal law and personal private choice is no longer a part of the equation. Pelosi’s House version commissions panel to consider 'volunteer' requirement as Obama’s “Mandatory Youth Service” (Brown Shirt legislation) makes its way towards becoming law.

Obama’s Poison Ivy
by Joan Swirsky

After only two months of the Obama presidency, Americans are horrified, angry, depressed, and on the verge of full-scale revolt against the president and his toadying Socialist acolytes for doing their best to destroy our once-vibrant economy, inflict decades of debt on our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and usher in what historians will surely record as The Age of The Hubristic and Incompetent Presidency. This assessment is borne out by polls, man-and-woman-in-the-street interviews, escalating unemployment figures, and creeping inflation which threatens to become the hyperinflation that will put the final nail in an economy that up until 2006...

Pork, Ear Marks & AIG
by Armand C. Hale

Congress recently approved $410 billion dollars more in spending. That's with $180 billion passed last spring, $345 billion in the summer, $700 billion in the fall and the recent $780 billion bailout. The total so far is $2.415 trillion dollars. The $410 billion in additional spending includes 8,500 earmarks price tagged at $7.7 billion. According to watchdog group Taxpayers for Common Sense they report; Congressman Ron Paul of Texas leads House Republicans having 20 earmarks short of $74 million in the bill. Congressman Don Young from Alaska has 27 earmarks over $71 million.

Americans Largely Silent as Their Nation is Systematically Destroyed
by JB Williams
After trillions in taxpayer debt has been foolishly poured into the bottomless black hole of leftist wealth redistribution programs, under the guise of economic “stimulus” or “stabilization” legislation, the new “ONE World” government running Washington DC announces; Geithner, Bernanke Call for New Wind-Down Powers After AIG... and the people still sit silent as they watch Obamanation grow in unbridled power. Geithner Asks Congress for even Broader Power to Seize private Firms as the average American stumbles through their daily routine as if nothing is happening.

The Four Horsemen of the (American) Apocalypse
by Paul R. Hollrah
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a term often used to describe the four phases of the Apocalypse. However, as we approach the end of the first decade of the 21st century we find ourselves beset by imminent manmade disasters which threaten the very existence of our civilization. The “four horsemen” of social and economic suicide in America are: 1) labor-management conflict, 2) financial collapse, 3) self-imposed energy shortages, and 4) failed public education. And while each of these “plagues” may appear to be separate and distinct, they all share one thing in common… they are all bi-products of liberal Democratic social and economic tinkering.

How can you tell where the economy and the market are heading?
by Vincent Gioia
Many of us have never heard of "The Baltic Dry Index" but we should know about it, especially if we’re concerned about the economy and try to gage when it will turn around. Of all the leading indicators The Baltic Dry Index is the most honest and not subject to manipulation or speculation because it is fact-driven. The Baltic Dry Index is an index that tracks the average cost of carrying dry cargo such as iron ore, grains, finished steel and coal. This can be a good indicator of the activity in the global economy because it allows one to measure the demand for raw goods, which is further indicative of future industrial activity.

Why I Am Depressed
by Scott Johnson
Victor Davis Hanson asks why so many Americans are depressed . Suggesting five themes that might provide an answer, he thinks it might be more than the economy that explains our state of mind. I agree, but none of Dr. Hanson's themes accounts for my despair. I feel utterly powerless to do anything about the fellow in the Oval Office who combines infantile leftism and adolescent grandiosity in roughly equal measures. It seems to me that every day he is responsible for assaults on the freedom and well being of the American people. I can't keep up and I can't stand to pay attention.

A Constitutionally Illiterate Congress
by Nancy Salvato
The definition of a citizen is one who is ruled and can rule in turn. We must have the capacity for both under the law. All citizens must be able to take the following oath of office... Sadly, in today's day and age, those elected to our legislature do not have to understand the law to represent their electors. Consequently, this Congress has proven to be the most constitutionally illiterate group of people ever elected to office.

Obama Seeks Alliance with Enemies of Freedom
by JB Williams
In an amazing gesture of gross ignorance, Resident Barack Hussein Obama sent a video message to Iran effectively begging for an ill-fated friendship with one of the most brutal regimes on earth, known for their sponsorship of international terrorism. Unlike the 66 million useful American idiots who voted for this fool, the Iranian government immediately rebuffed Obama’s ill-advised overture, identifying the outreach as nothing more than another carefully crafted, but overtly empty, campaign “slogan.”

Democracy is the Road to Socialism - Who Knew?
by JB Williams

Thomas Jefferson correctly warned against “democracy” as a form of self-governance, properly defining it as “nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” Marx’s proletariat, the working class, organized by trade unions and trained to vote themselves gifts from the public trough, replacing the representative republic with a pure democracy via rewritten history and ideologically redefined words, will rule by simple majority mob, forcing its will upon the minority, the American taxpayer.

If you’re a neo-socialist administration who wants to remain in power, how do you conduct the census?
by Vincent Gioia
The Constitution requires that all of us living in this country be counted every ten years; this is the “census.” The results are extremely important because the number of congressional representative for each state is determined by the final count and that number remains in place for the following ten tears until the next census. Distribution of the largess from the federal government on everything from roads to schools is also determined by the numbers so states with more people counted get a bigger piece of each and every pie baked by Big Brother.

The ‘Give Obama a Chance' Trial Period is Over
by Frank Salvato

Like many conservatives, traditionalists and Republicans who didn't want to ape the caustic rhetoric of the neo-Marxist Progressive-Left used during the entirety of the Bush Administration, I promised myself to refrain from immediately assuming that Barack Obama was going to bring with him to the White House the backroom politics of Chicago's Democrat Machine. I employed the Reagan doctrine of “trust but verify.” Well, the verdict is in and the political tactics and policies that Barack Obama has brought to the Executive Branch are not only of the old school “Chicago Way,” they are literally neo-Marxist and naïve.

Natural Born Citizens
by Nancy Salvato
This is a commentary in response to James Taranto's recent column in which he takes yet another opportunity to use his bully pulpit to jab at the vast numbers of people who take painstakingly seriously the idea that no person except a natural born citizen shall be eligible to hold the office of President. I used to enjoy reading James Taranto. I used to appreciate his sarcasm and wit. Not so much anymore. I'm starting to find it incredibly annoying that Taranto refers to himself as “us”. Worse, it's his attitude that he knows more than the rest of “us” and that those of “us” who want to see our 44th President produce a legitimate birth certificate are right wing nuts.

Rebuilding The Republican Party For 2010
by Christopher G. Adamo
It would be virtually impossible for the left to ignore the resentment among the people of heartland America that is currently simmering and threatens to soon come to a boil. The realization of the grave consequences of the liberal/socialist juggernaut, at the core of the "hope and change" rhetoric of the past year, is clearly motivating real America to take a stand for the sake of the country. Those Democrats who had expected to ram through an agenda that would fundamentally alter the makeup of the nation are finding out that their task may not be so easy as initially expected.

Will what destroys Israel also destroy the United States?
by Vincent Gioia
It is amazing how similar politics in Israel are to politics in the United States. Both countries have so-called liberal and conservative elements; the difference being that Israeli liberal policies will lead to the rapid end of the country and the present neo socialist government in the United States is accomplishing the slow death of the country. There are people in Israel that even during even the recent war openly supported Hamas. When Israel’s Lieberman suggested to outlaw these parties and their political leaders and asked for a pledge of allegiance to the country, just as in the United States, everybody said of him, "You're a racist, you're a fascist."

Bristol Bashing Reflects The Left’s Ongoing Fear of Her Mother
by Joan Swirsky

The Left’s tolerance knows no bounds. Practiced in the art of understanding and forgiving human foibles, and averse to the “judgment” they find so intolerable in those who think there are actually values such as right and wrong, good and bad, virtue and evil, liberals demonstrate every day how morally evolved they are. No matter how egregious or even illegal the behavior, they say it’s either a “private matter” or “irrelevant.”

The coming loss of American sovereignty
by Vincent Gioia
Most Americans don’t realize it but as Jon Bolton has pointed out the United States is in a war on sovereignty. Add this war to the still unfinished war on poverty and the war on terrorism (now disclaimed by President Obama) and we have the makings of the destruction of our constitutional form of government. The new war on sovereignty started slowly but will be accelerated in the next four years and from all appearances may be a war our country will lose unless the public realizes Obama is just a socialist idealist and not a messiah but one who has been under the tutelage of socialist and communist mentors.

Saving America, Only ONE Peaceful Solution Remains
by JB Williams
Talk of civil unrest leading to civil war, state-by-state secession from the union, a new Continental Congress aimed at enforcing the letter of the Constitution, replacing the two anti-American political parties with one of 50 others equally uncontrollable, Tea Party demonstrations, and more than thirty (30) state legislatures reclaiming state sovereignty light up the Internet daily. Gun and ammo sales are at an all-time high, even as every other business sector is driven into the dirt by outrageous Marxist policies rammed into law, hour after hour.

The last battle for Prop 8
by Armand C. Hale
Sacramento, California is the legal back drop for Prop 8's big day in California court. Homosexual marriage activists made the claim that 100,000 people would overflow the streets to protest Prop 8. Only one thousand people turned out. On the plaza one California state representative continued the hype claiming that if the court failed to overturn Prop 8, there would be "A million people on the streets fighting for our rights." The true enjoyment was inside the court room. The justices were tearing into lawyers arguing that somehow the people have no right to amend the constitution to protect marriage.

Bernie & Ruth & Chuck & Hillary
by Paul R. Hollrah
No, we’re not suggesting a sequel to the 1969 film, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, a film starring Natalie Wood, Robert Culp, Elliott Gould, and Dyan Cannon as hip new-age couples struggling with the temptations of mate-swapping. What concerns us here is a much more serious real-life drama in which some 4,800 investors have been defrauded of an estimated $64.8 billion by an unscrupulous New York investment advisor, Bernard Madoff. Although, given the principal actors in the film and in the ongoing Madoff scandal, some interesting parallels might be drawn.

Has illegal immigration and affect on education become the 'third rail of politics?'
by Vincent Gioia

Traditionally social security has been the “third rail” of politics but we now have another third rail – illegal immigration and education. Politicians step all over themselves asking for more and more money to be spent on education; ignoring the fact that money alone does not make for a good public education. Another thing we are not allowed to mention in a discussion about public education quality and costs is the impact of illegal immigration; otherwise we are labeled “racists.”

Obama’s Embryonic Stem Cell Sacrament
by Christopher G. Adamo

Imagine the liberal hysteria that would immediately erupt upon any use of government funds to promote the Judeo-Christian principles which have upheld our nation’s freedom and prosperity for over two centuries. America, we are incessantly told by the left, was founded on the principle of “separation of church and state” (as if life, liberty, and all of the other noble ideals of this republic were mere afterthoughts). An attempt by the nation’s leaders to advance a religious or Christian worldview would, in the minds of liberals, constitute a mortal threat to the future of the country.

Obama is Dancing, But Who Calls the Tune?
by Paul R. Hollrah
Jim Cramer, the liberal host of CNBC’s Mad Money TV series, has apparently “stepped in it” with some of his liberal friends. After being taken to task by New York Times columnist Frank Rich, liberal humorist Jon Stewart, and others, he wrote, “President Obama's team, unlike Bush's team, demonstrates a thinness of skin that shocks me. When I somewhat obviously and empirically judged that the populist Obama administration is exacerbating the (financial) crisis with its budget and policies, as evidenced by the incredible decline in the averages since his inauguration, I was met immediately with condescension and ridicule rather than constructive debate or even just benign dismissal.

War Underway for America; Undocumented Obamanation Citizens vs. Real Americans
by JB Williams
The Obamanation won’t even use the term “illegal alien,” let alone criminal invader, illegal immigrant or illegitimate migrant. They prefer their politically motivated term “undocumented citizen” to describe the 20 million illegal invaders already sucking the life out of the public trough, and their families yet to arrive. I will be called a “bigot” or a “racist” thug for calling them anything but “undocumented Americans,” which only proves just how insanely ignorant too many Americans really are today.

Obama’s “Audacity of Hope” is that labor unions control the workplace
by Vincent Gioia
In his book, “Audacity of Hope”, Barack Obama recognized his debt to labor unions and revealed what he would do if given the chance to lead this country: "I owe those unions... When their leaders call, I do my best to call them back right away. I don't mind feeling obligated." Of course Obama’s obligation is not to the rank and file union members, it is to the big time union bosses; they are the ones that call the shots and devote huge amounts of money to Obama’s ambitions. Indeed, many union members do not subscribe to the Obama socialist program and did not vote for Obama.

REMEMBERING THE ALAMO
By Chuck Baldwin - NewsWithViews.com
March 6 marks the anniversary of the fall of the Alamo back in 1836. For more than 13 days, 186 brave and determined patriots withstood Santa Anna's seasoned army of over 4,000 troops. To a man, the defenders of that mission fort knew they would never leave those ramparts alive. They had several opportunities to leave and live. Yet, they chose to fight and die. How foolish they must look to this generation of spoiled Americans. There was something different about them, however. They possessed a commitment to liberty that transcended personal safety and comfort.

Obama is Unifying the Nation Against Washington DC
by JB Williams
According to http://www.rasmussenreports.com/, only 16% of the nation strongly disapproved of Barack Hussein Obama on the day of his inauguration. That number has since become 32%, doubling during his first six weeks in office. Not even all those who approved strongly on inauguration day, still approve today, that number dropping from 41% to 38%. This most likely has a lot to do with the fact that Obama and Pelosi’s Obamanomics adventure into Marxism, has already cost average Americans nearly $3 Trillion in lost investments and savings, as the DOW lost another 30% of its values just since the day Obama was elected.

Obama’s Toxic Brew

It’s not witches, but the three warlocks of the new administration – President Obama, his chief Chicago-Machine-henchman Rahm Emanuel, and his tax-cheating Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner – who are boiling the American people in a cauldron of their own, not with poisoned entrails, eye of newt, or toe of frog, but with a fatal mixture of a trillion-dollars of so-called “stimulus” dollars, draconian tax hikes, doomed-to-fail bailouts, and additional healthcare and other expenditures that are, above all, designed to bankrupt the United States of America.

Impoverishment, Elitism & Apathy
by Nancy Salvato
We experience considerable disjoint between those with money to run expensive campaigns for the Senate or House of Representatives and those persuaded to elect the chosen few. This great disparity is without a doubt a function of the degree to which impoverishment or elitism defines the classes that make up our society. While many people let the world of politics revolve without giving it a second thought, our present political reality begs for our attention and consideration. We cannot afford to disengage.

$8.4 Trillion Dollars
by Armand C. Hale
The Obama budget claims to cut the deficit in half by 2012. Obama relies on brave & hopeful economic forecasts that no one believes in. Adding the huge Pork-a-Saurus bill to a realistic budget baseline yields a projected 2010-2017 cumulative budget deficit of $8.4 trillion ($8,400,000,000,000.00). That's approximately $28,000 for every man, woman and child in the United States. That’s 2.5 times the size of Bush’s deficits over the same eight-year period and Obama has only been in office for a little over a month.

Well Is He, or Isn’t He?
by Paul R. Hollrah
It is a popular topic of discussion in political circles these days, and as the weeks pass more and more people are asking, “Is Barack Obama really a natural born citizen of the United States? Is he eligible to serve as President, or isn’t he?” If he is, then so be it. We’ll just have to grit our teeth until this long dark nightmare comes to an end… one way or another. But what if he is not eligible? What then? Well, in that case we have a problem… a very large problem, the solution to which could tear asunder the fabric of American society.

Recognizing the Reality of Radical Islam
by Frank Salvato
Newsweek recently ran an article by Fareed Zakaria titled, Learning to Live with Radical Islam. In this article Mr. Zakaria contends that in our quest to prevail over the virulent factions within the fundamentalist Islamic culture we in the West must learn to discern the radical Islamist from the jihadi; the fundamentalist from the terrorist. Although Mr. Zakaria touches on a few noteworthy points... his thesis that, “We can better pursue our values if we recognize the local and cultural context, and appreciate that people want to find their own balance between freedom and order, liberty and license,” ignores the fact that jihadis rule by force and that their “cultural context” and “license” is no less than totalitarian.

Obama Attempts to Rewrite Conservatism
by Christopher G. Adamo
The Democrat “divide and conquer” strategy worked well against the Republicans on far too many occasions in the past, particularly when the GOP was under the sway of “moderates.” All too often, these crowd pleasers took the Democrat bait, attempting to ingratiate themselves with the voting public by offering a second-rate imitation of the Democrat agenda. The events of the past few weeks, when considered in their entirety, reveal that Republicans are being set up to take another fall.

Well Mr. Williams, What would you have us do?
by JB Williams
When time allows, I often visit some of the key conservative sites that publish or re-publish my column, in an effort to gauge reader sentiments as events unfold. Today’s column is a direct attempt to answer the most common question asked by readers across the blogosphere. Clearly, the people are getting in the mood to fight back against the increasingly powerful enemy within, comfortably ramming Marxism down the throat of every freedom-loving American, as if they face no real opposition.

Netanyahu, Carpe Diem
by Vincent Gioia
There was an article recently entitled “Netanyahu, Carpe Diem;” Bibi, seize the day,” - I would add “Netanyahu illegitimi non carborundum”, don’t let the bastards wear you down. Ever since the outgoing Olmert government ended Operation Cast Lead in Gaza on January 20, the Palestinians have steadily stepped-up their missile attacks against Israel. Daily Palestinian missile barrages against Israel have returned to pre-Operation Cast Lead levels. The IDF warned that over the past six weeks Hamas has rebuilt its missile arsenals both through imports of Iranian arms from Egypt and through local production.

What are ‘the People’ Thinking As 546 Political Pigs Destroy their Nation?
by JB Williams
We have one president, one vice president, nine Supreme Court justices’, 435 members of the people’s House and 100 US senators. That’s 546 people responsible for forcing 310 million Americans into the proverbial soup line, where 546 political pigs hope Americans will choose global secular socialism as a lesser evil to a complete socio-economic meltdown.

A Tale of Two Impeachments
by Paul R. Hollrah
Pity poor Rod Blagojevich. On Thursday, January 29, the Illinois Senate, in a unanimous 59-0 vote, removed the governor from office on “abuse of power” charges. The Illinois Senate is comprised of 18 mostly down-state Republicans and 37 Democrats… 18 of them products of Chicago’s corrupt political machine, the same machine that has spawned Tony Rezko, Rahm Emanuel, and of course, Rod Blagojevich and Barack Obama.

Mr. Obama refuses to show he is constitutionally qualified to be president
by Vincent Gioia
President Barack Obama has hired an army of lawyers to prevent access to records that may show he is constitutionally unqualified to be president of the United States. Doesn’t that seem odd to you? A California lawsuit seeking documentation from Occidental College that could verify the nationality under which Barack Obama entered the school has been filed by Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation, which has brought a lawsuit on behalf of Ambassador Alan Keyes over Obama's eligibility.

An Alternative to Impending Doom
by Nancy Salvato
In the time that has passed since President Obama was elected to and now holds the presidency of the United States, there has been something of an ominous and disturbing feel accompanying the media's portrayal of his administration. It brings to mind news coverage of third world countries taken over by a military coup or overrun by a junta or dictatorship whose next move is to nationalize their industries or indiscriminately ravage the countryside. There is a one-step removed air about the reporting that belies the gravity of what is being discussed and makes each event surreal.

Obammigration Disaster Looms
by JB Williams
13 to 25 million illegal migrants live, work, attend school, receive free health care, and feed at the public trough in America today, all at enormous expense to national sovereignty, national security and American taxpayers, most of whom are Republican. Another 40 million wait in Mexico, for Obama’s promised green light at the border... That’s the good news! According to Obamanation leaders, free unfettered American citizenship by illegal immigration is now a global “civil right.” High on the list of leftist Obama priorities is the effort to legalize all of it.

Marxist Obama-nomics Destroy DOW
by JB Williams

The DOW Jones average closed at $8,281.22 on January 19, 2009, the night before the Obamanation became an historic reality. A little more than a month later, the DOW continues its free-fall approaching the $7000 mark and nobody knows where the bottom is. But so far, Obama-nomics have cost Americans trillions in new debt and 14% of their savings, in just a month... Hope for economic recovery is fast flying right out the window as Obamanation change sends investors running for cover.

Obama Administration Corruption And Chaos
by Christopher G. Adamo
Somehow, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-CA) has been able to keep a straight face while decrying the “culture of corruption” among Republicans. In retrospect, the nature of the infractions on which she based the accusation seem almost quaint in comparison to the unfathomable abuses of federal monies and power now occurring under a Democrat controlled Congress and Executive branch.

‘Oh, God!' It's Bobby Jindal!
by Frank Salvato
It is no secret that today's mainstream media has morphed into an ideological and agenda-driven propaganda machine, complete with preconceived notions and pre-existing biases. We witnessed the repercussions of this ethical degradation first-hand in the mainstream media's failure to critically examine the Obama presidential candidacy prior to the 2008 Presidential Election. This bastardization of the media's informational charge can only be understood as being detrimental to the United States.

Are the States About to Slap the Runaway Fed Down to Constitutional Size?
by JB Williams
On February 5, 2009, I released a column titled New Hampshire Leads Next American Revolution! As of February 17th, when I released It's Time for American Freedom Fighters to Unite, some twenty states had followed that lead, introducing measures of their own aimed at reclaiming state rights to defend against what was clearly becoming a runaway Democratic Socialist juggernaut in Washington DC, running roughshod over Republican members of congress and the millions of Americans they represent.

The Fuse Is Lit
by Armand C. Hale

Most of the American people are up in arms about what is going on in Washington, D.C. I have never seen such disgruntlement with one man named Obama and one Congress called the 111th! Blogs, printed on-line opinions, talk radio and who knows who else are buzzing about what this man and this congress has come out as. I never thought I would see anything like this in my life time. A powder keg is about to go off and it won’t be pretty.

Islam’s new anti-Jewish friend, the Obama administration
by Vincent Gioia

On April 20-24, 2009, in Geneva, Switzerland, the United Nations will host the “Durban Review Conference,” – a follow-up to the 2001 UN World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance (WCAR). As mandated by the UN General Assembly, the Human Rights Council of the United Nations (UNHRC) is responsible for organizing and convening the event “towards the effective and comprehensive implementation” of the conclusions and recommendations of WCAR, and to continue the “global drive for the total elimination of racism.”

Tax Evasion vs. Tax Revolt, Secession vs. Revolution
by JB Williams
America is certainly headed for very difficult times and from investors to employers to employees and retirees, people of all political stripes are beginning to react to an overbearing federal government that is behaving more like a heavy handed left-wing dictatorship than a representative republic. The US Constitution is being shredded, replaced by progressive democratic socialism. The DOW lost 27% of its value during the last six months of 2008. But it has already lost another 12% in the first thirty days of unbridled Democrat rule.

We’re Losing Our Country – But What Can We Do?
by Joan Swirsky
From the moment Barack Obama was inaugurated on January 20th, the leftists who control Congress have – at his behest – gone on a drunken binge of runaway spending vis-à-vis an $850-bilion faux “stimulus” program that rewards failure and punishes success. It is already clear that The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act should be renamed The American Relapse-And-Needs-Resuscitation Act, as is evidenced by both the simultaneous plunge of the Dow and the president’s polling numbers, as well as an epidemic case of buyer’s remorse.

Obama’s Failing Economic Recovery Plan
by JB Williams
Despite trillions in so-called “economic stimulus” efforts from Washington elites, economic experts continue to predict “tougher times ahead and more stimulus needed.” Democrats strong-armed their 40 year wish list of leftist spending through congress without a single supporter across the aisle and even seven fellow Democrats opposed. Members of congress were not even allowed to read the 1070 page document before being forced to vote on it and Obama signed it into law before keeping his campaign promise to allow voters at least five days to view the product before signing it.

Obama’s Revenge
by Joan Swirsky
Once upon a time, a white teenager from Kansas got pregnant by her black Kenyan boyfriend, Barack Obama Sr., or was it her husband? Whatever. (I say no whatever because we’ve never seen either marriage or divorce certificates). Some say the couple was in Kenya visiting relatives when the birth of their son, Barack Obama Jr., occurred. No matter. (I say no matter because we’ve never seen an authentic birth certificate). By the time the baby was two years old his father abandoned him for his other wife and child in Kenya.

What we are not told about oil prices
by  Vincent Gioia
Gasoline prices keep going up and the price of oil goes down. Obviously this is a sign that big oil companies are gouging us. Ask any Democrat politician, ask President Obama, read any newspaper, watch CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS and MSNBC, they will all say the same thing. In fact, ask your neighbor, he will also tell you the oil companies are fixing oil prices and gouging the public. Why not, no one explains oil prices so what else is one to believe?

Mr. Obama the barn is also 'shovel ready'
by Vincent Gioia
The President and Democrats have heralded the so-called “compromise bipartisan” stimulus bill passed by the House as curing what ails us. Obama lies to us that millions of jobs will be created and together with the tax cuts in the bill we will take our economy out of depression. But the truth is that neither will help over the long run.

Every American will Pay The Price of Gross Ignorance
by JB Williams
In 2008, Americans foolishly used their freedom to vote for “chains” not “change.” Life, property, speech and guns, are at the foundation of American freedom and the corrupt Chicago cabal now in charge, is aggressively coming after all of them. · Obama’s “economic bailout” is a global socialist buyout of the U.S. free market system. ALL private property is under siege, as advised by George Soros.

Effective Tools in Education
by Nancy Salvato
On EdNews.org , a Mr. John Galt recently posted a response to my commentary, Three Good Reasons to Become a Teacher: June, July and August. “I became a teacher because I wanted to know I would be secure in retirement. I also happened to like working with kids.” I found his comment more than slightly disturbing because one would hope that a person would enter the teaching profession based on a desire to teach, not for the pension.

It's Not Obama's 'Stimulus' Bill
by Frank Salvato

Now that the behemoth “stimulus” package has been reconciled in conference it appears that we, the taxpayers, will be saddled with financing a superfluity of special interest projects and entitlements. The American citizenry has employed the convenient practice of blaming the President of the United States for all things enacted or ignored by government. This practice has been facilitated by the mainstream media for decades, if not since the birth of our nation.

Senator Stabenow Exudes Hypocrisy Of 'Fairness Doctrine'
by Christopher G. Adamo
New and menacing rumblings of their planned assault on free speech come from Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, who on February 4 told interviewer Bill Press “It’s time to bring accountability to the airwaves.” In her world of all-knowing Beltway insiders, “accountability” simply means that those who disagree should be summarily stripped of their ability to say so in front of the gullible masses.

The Road to Fascism
by Paul R. Hollrah
One of the primary raps against George W. Bush has always been his 'halting' speaking style… his words pouring out in four and five-word bursts, followed by momentary pauses to allow him to collect his thoughts. It was a maddening affectation, to say the least, and did little to inspire confidence. His enemies used this peculiarity as proof of a lack of intellect, while his supporters sat on the edge of their chairs, shouting, “C’mon, George… spit it out!”

The worst part of the ‘Stimulus’ bill is the start of socialized medicine
by Vincent Gioia
The spending plan urged by President Obama and made real by Pelosi, Reid and three Republican renegades will become law. The Democrat nightmare was passed with the urgency of a car salesman who says “here’s my best deal but you have to take it right now”, no time to think about it or to really understand it, and certainly no time to discuss it with others. Take the deal now or lose it.

The Buck Always Stops with Taxpayers
by JB Williams

Are American Taxpayers Paying Attention? Obama administration officials have their talking point down pat – “everything is still George Bush’s fault.” They only have one, because it has worked so well for them to date. When Obama took office less than a month ago, the federal deficit was at a staggering $10 trillion after almost eighty years of constant deficit spending by congress, including the $1 trillion bank bailout passed by Bush and the Democrat congress in the final weeks of the Bush administration.

Okay, You Want Socialism? Then YOU Pay for It!
by JB Williams
50% of Americans clearly want socialism, having bought hook, line and sinker into Barack Obama’s version of the Karl Marx system of “from each according to his ability; to each according to his need.” But equally clear is the fact that the other 50% of Americans don’t want socialism, still preferring the Founders’ notion of freedom, liberty and self-governance.

When Those Who Don’t Pay Taxes Run the Nation
by JB Williams
For decades, America had been teetering on the tipping point between right and wrong, political right and left, American and anti-American leadership. Decisions made by the federal government had been highly partisan for some years, and even the American system of justice was no longer blind to race, creed, gender, economic or social status. The courts had become just another political tool for affecting “progressive” change.

Houston, We Have a Problem
by Nancy Salvato

“64 percent of all students engage in one of three of the most serious cheating behaviors — copying from another student's work, using cheat notes or helping someone else cheat.” I wonder how many people find the above statistic the least bit surprising. More importantly, I'm curious as to how it has come to this? Why do students cheat in such large numbers? I would guess that a substantial portion of these cheaters use “pre-conventional” thinking skills.

Abraham Lincoln - False idol?
by Vincent Gioia
President Obama has glorified President Abraham Lincoln and some of Obama's supporters even liken him to Lincoln as a savior of the country. Too bad; if Obama had done a little homework he might have discovered that he doesn't like what Lincoln believed and said publicly about black folks. Does Obama really want to compare himself to Lincoln?

Pelosi's Power Grab
by Armand C. Hale
With all the focus on the stimulus bill in the news Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has also effectively moved to SILENCE what CONSERVATIVES are left in Congress, keep the American public in the dark, and made a naked grab for power! On the very first day of Congress, Pelosi pushed through a change to a House rule known as the "motion to recommit," a rule that was implemented a CENTURY AGO specifically to PROHIBIT the leadership of the majority party from railroading horrendous legislation through Congress under the cover of darkness.

Money? What Money?
by Alan Burkhart
I've been reading this morning that frugal Americans are hurting the economic recovery efforts by saving our money instead of spending it. Last time I checked, Americans were holding the line on spending because we don't have nearly as much (if any) discretionary spending ability as before. Money is tight and times are hard. What are we supposed to do? Shall I take the cash I'm holding for my next house payment and by a new Nintendo? Shall I skip the water bill in favor of a couple of 12-packs of Miller Lite?

Why Obama Cannot Unite America, Much Less the World
by JB Williams
Just as the victims of 9/11 have nothing whatsoever in common with the terrorists who murdered 3000 innocent Americans, pro-freedom Americans have absolutely nothing in common with today’s Democratic Socialists currently in full control of the U.S. federal government. Not so long ago, the most diverse population on earth was united upon the uniquely common American principles and values of personal freedom and individual liberty. That’s over now!

Mad Max Threatens California
by Paul R. Hollrah
Mad Max is a 1979 Australian film which tells the story of social breakdown, murder, and mayhem in post-apocalyptic Australia. A January 17, 2009 story in the Los Angeles Times by Evan Halper and Patrick McGreevy is headlined “California controller to suspend tax refunds, welfare checks, student grants.” It tells the story of California’s ongoing financial crisis, brought on by years of liberal and Democratic dominance in California politics. But more importantly, it provides a chilling glimpse of what is in store for the people of America if Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi are permitted to impose their ideal of what America is all about from their respective perches in Washington.

New Hampshire Leads Next American Revolution!
by JB Williams
Americans fed up with the unbridled endless federal assault on private earnings, assets and rights, and looking for what they can do to put a stop to the rush of socialist tyranny being fast-tracked through the leftist congress, or signed into law by Obamessiah executive order, should take a close look at what the New Hampshire legislature has already done! Four New Hampshire legislators introduced HCR-6 [1] to re-invoke states rights enumerated in Jefferson’s and Madison’s Kentucky Resolutions of 1798. The resolution is a clear shot across the bow of the New Leftist Administration in Washington DC...

Why On Earth Is Jane Garvey On Obama’s Radar Screen?
by Joan Swirsky
It’s no surprise that President Obama and his crack vetting team are considering Randy Babbitt as the next head of the Federal Aviation Administration. After all, Mr. Babbitt is former head of the country’s largest union representing airline pilots, and we know how near and dear to Mr. Obama’s heart unions are. “The choice, if it goes through as anticipated,” writes the Wall St. Journal’s Andy Paszfor (who reports on the FAA), “would satisfy labor leaders who have been urging the appointment of someone to the FAA sympathetic to their views.

Time to Admit the Realities of Pakistan
by Frank Salvato
For as long as the United States has been fighting the “War on Terror” the nation of Pakistan has pledged its alliance. Throughout the tenure of Pervez Musharraf's administration and during the prospect of a Benazir Bhutto government, those in control of the Pakistani message have openly pledged their support to the US-led effort in the conflict with radical Islamist aggression. Today, President Asif Ali Zardari continues that line of rhetoric. But reality often betrays rhetoric.

Republicans Try to Stimulate Economy - Democrats Busy Stimulating Themselves
by JB Williams

As Nancy Pelosi’s trillion dollar grab bag of socialist spending hits a bumpy road in the Senate, Obama hits the panic button in a highly partisan attempt to rally Democrat law makers away on holiday at a swank little Williamsburg, VA spa. All that campaign talk about a new era of personal responsibility and bipartisan cooperation went right out the window the second congressional Republicans refused to lay down and take one for the team. Apparently, bipartisan now means roll over and play dead...

A 'bipartisan' bill?
by Vincent Gioia

In response to President Obama’s sky is falling prediction, The House and Senate drove in high gear to “save the country”. But fearful that their effort would fail, they called for “bipartisan legislation” to share the blame. Obama said he wants to bring Republicans into the mix, pledging to listen to them, praising the late-Friday negotiations. Obama said that "by the evening, Democrats and Republicans came together in the Senate and responded appropriately to the urgency this moment demands."

Governors MUST Manage the States, Forget the Federal Trough
by JB Williams
Governors across America are shoving their way to the federal feeding trough in an effort to gain access to the trillions of leftist taxpayer funded bailouts. Numerous state governments have failed to manage their own budgets and now they want taxpayers to bail them out too... Governors should take careful note of what strings are attached anytime the leftist fed offers its helping hand. The troubled economy is dragging all government budgets into the drink. But let’s not overlook how the economy became troubled in the first place and let’s not continue on that same path any farther.

The open attack on Veterans Health Care
by Armand C. Hale
Obama has placed a priority on cutting “Tri-care for Life” out of the Congressional budget. It’s the health care program for military vets past and present. This is his means to provide funding for things he promised during the campaign, regardless of who gets the shaft. So much for "universal healthcare" for all Americans, eh? On page 189 of the Congressional Budget Office report (CBO) there is a strong recommendation to eliminate this program. In Chapter 9, page 173, option 95, the titled is; “Increase Health Care Costs Sharing for Family Members of Active Duty Military Personnel.”

Obama, Pelosi and Reid Push to Dig National Hole Deeper
by JB Williams
In my last column, Congressional Democrats Bankrupted the Nation [1], I walk readers through the factual history, from 1916 to 2009, that has brought America step-by-step from the most productive and prosperous nation ever known to mankind, to national bankruptcy, in less than a hundred years. The past is clear and indisputable.... though few folks know it and even fewer seem to have learned the lesson.

Are Conservative Leaders Arising From GOP Mire?
by Christopher G. Adamo
The events of the past week should thoroughly scare anyone with an understanding of historical causes and effects. Fortunately for the underwriters of the “new order,” most Americans remain blissfully ignorant of the plotting and maneuvering going on inside the Beltway. As long as the network anchors keep force-feeding the people a steady diet of euphoric anecdotes regarding everything Obama, along with the predictable public opinion polls showing that the ruse has gained near universal acceptance, America can continue inexorably on its descent into socialism.

The Opaque Presidency
by Paul R. Hollrah

One of the central themes of the Obama Administration is the notion of “openness” and “transparency.” Anyone who believes that the Obama Administration will be any more open than the Bush Administration, the standard by which most liberals and Democrats measure their intentions (not actions… intentions) is smoking something far stronger than Marlboros.

Congressional Democrats Bankrupted the Nation
History of Government Sponsored Enterprises
by JB Williams
Even though the US congress has been mucking up the banking industry since 1916, few Americans are familiar with GSE’s, (Government Sponsored Enterprises). As a result, the people have hired the same people who destroyed the US economy to begin with, to fix the US economy. Those people are now attempting to save the nation from complete economic collapse via the same failed economic policies that caused the crisis...

Fighting Fire with Fire
by Alan Burkhart
In a recent article posted at truthout.org, Phillip Butler makes a case for the arrest of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld for crimes against the U.S. Constitution. Butler is a veteran military pilot and was a POW in Vietnam for 2,855 days. Since his repatriation in 1973, he has earned a PhD in Sociology and according to his author bio, "he mentors business and organization leaders and is a community activist."

Don’t Confuse Intellect with Intelligence
by JB Williams

America voted to fill the halls of Washington DC government with what they consider to be our nation’s “greatest intellectuals,” political progressives. But they had best not confuse intellect with intelligence, or they will be sadly disappointed by the ignorant decisions already evident in the new Washington elite...

Letting the Evidence Speak for Itself
by Nancy Salvato
In a letter recently submitted to Education Week CITATION, Stephen Krashen, Professor Emeritus, draws attention to the Reading First final impact study which showed that children following an intensive decoding-based curriculum do well on tests of decoding but not on measures of reading comprehension when compared with regular students. He reminds readers that the National Reading Panel, the foundation for Reading First, came up with similar results.

Wishing President Obama success – why?
by Vincent Gioia
It has become popular to wish our new president success. The country’s elite can’t wait for the Obama agenda to come to life which is understandable since they are all liberals and champion Obama’s socialist agenda however when Republicans voice this mantra it shows how the party of Reagan no longer exists.

Federal Defense of Marriage Act
by Armand C. Hale

The Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is under attack! American voters last November made clear: We don't support same-sex marriage. Homosexual activists will stop at nothing to impose same-sex marriage on the rest of us, "whether we like it or not." Special interests demand that Obama and the new Congress OVERTURN DOMA.

Taxpayer Funds for International Abortion, Obama Priority One?
by JB Williams
One of many Bush Administration policies being immediately overturned by the new Obama cabal is the existing ban on the use of federal tax dollars to promote and fund abortions here and abroad. Obama planned to sign an executive order pouring US taxpayer funds into abortion practices all over the world on his first day in office. But as the March for Life [1] on Washington DC was scheduled for January 21st, he decided to delay the signing of this peculiar executive order for a couple of days. The March for Life has now passed and Obama is scheduled to sign the order today, January 23, 2009.

Ushering in the error of Obama
by Mark Alexander
The inauguration-ordination-coronation of Barack Obama on Tuesday was heralded by his fawning media as nothing less than a "messianic" revival, with endless inaugural balls and star-studded celebrations on either end. Strange, but I seem to recall that the Leftmedia skewered George W. Bush for spending almost $40 million on his first inauguration, proclaiming the events to be "grotesque" and all about "excess." But with deficit spending estimated to fly past the trillion-dollar mark in Obama's first year in office, not one of his media sycophants has questioned the cost of this week's events.

KUHNER: Year of infamy?
Jeffery T. Kuhner
Historians will look at 2008 and say it was the year that America ceased to be a great superpower. A war-weary public threw in the towel against Islamic fascism, and embraced President-elect Barack Obama´s policy of appeasement. Groveling in fear of a recession, Americans also overthrew their free-market ideals. This was the year of false hope by an Obama prophet who will only accelerate our demise. The core of Mr. Obama's appeal - behind the vacuous promises of "change" and "hope" - is that his election will "restore America's standing in the world." The muscular, unilateralist foreign policy of President Bush is over.

Why I Want Barack Obama To Fail As President
Warner Todd Huston
An extremely liberal co-worker of mine — he’s in the past said that the “rich” should be killed, for instance — asked me a serious question by which he felt he could gauge whether or not I was a “real” American in his eyes during the rise of the age of Obama. He wondered whether I wish success for Barack Obama as our president. After a few seconds of reflection I had to honestly give a qualified “no” in answer to his query. We want them to do what is best for the country. That is what we mean by “success.” And, when you get right down to it, opinions vary of what “best” means. I do want Obama to be successful on what would be best for this country, absolutely. Unfortunately, there is little that he campaigned on that would be good for this country.

Goodbye, George Bush
by Paul R. Hollrah
“Few presidents have entered the Oval Office with as much opportunity for positive change as did George Bush. Certainly, no previous president ever ascended to the presidency with the future of the country so critically in the balance. Yet, Bush left the White House having failed to lead the country, having failed to grasp the opportunities that lay before him…” George W. Bush? No, those paragraphs are excerpted from a February 25, 1993 op-ed column that I wrote for The Tulsa Sentinel, expressing my views on the outgoing president, George H.W. Bush.

It’s The Jews, Stupid
by Joan Swirsky
For many decades after World War II, Eastern Europe was completely Judenrein, a Nazi term meaning free of – actually rid of – Jews. Small wonder, given that the region’s concentration camps and crematoria – Chelmno, Belzec, Treblinka, Sobibor, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Dachau, Majdanek, Sachsenhausen, Buchenwald, Flossenburg, Mauthausen, Ravensbruck, et al.– had incinerated millions of Jews in the Nazi’s reign of terror. But even in the utter absence of Jews, anti-Semitism flourished!

Obama Mania Will Eventually Collide With Reality
by Christopher G. Adamo

Conservatives, real conservatives, are by now thoroughly nauseated from all of the inaugural gushing and fawning over Obama. But if they think that this slobber-fest was going to end now that he has assumed the presidency, they are going to be sorely disappointed. The leftist cheerleaders will continue trumpeting the supposed grandeur and majesty of this day long after its fabricated luster has thoroughly dulled in the eyes of the thinking public.

Who's better to take care of the horses than a reformed horse thief?
by Vincent Gioia
In one respect Timothy Geithner is just like most of us; he doesn’t want to pay taxes and he will do all he can to send the government as little as possible; however that’s where the similarity ends. Timothy (May I call you Timothy Mr. Geithner?) will likely be the next Secretary of the Treasury and will be in charge of the Internal Revenue Service and the rest of us will not. It has been revealed that Timothy is a tax cheat. In Joe Biden’s lexicon, Timothy is not a patriotic American because Biden says “it is patriotic to pay taxes” and Timothy did what he could to pay the least amount of taxes even if it meant a little bit of cheating.

Done! - 'History' Made... Now What?
by JB Williams
The nation, from kindergarten classes through retirees fearful of their golden years on the federal dole and many with their hand out in between, is clearly transfixed on the prospect of “making history” in the 2008 election on this special inauguration day.

The Supreme Court’s Hottest Potato
by Paul R. Hollrah
Recent polls tell us that from 55-60 percent of the American people now believe that the question of Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as President of the United States has at least some merit. So where do all of these cases stand, legally? Given that there appears to be credible evidence to support one or both of the alleged scenarios, how can the courts fail to adjudicate the matter? And what must be going through the minds of the justices as these cases are laid before them?

'Global warming' isn’t about global warming
by Vincent Gioia
'Global warming' has nothing to do with climate change; at least not as practiced by politicians, would be entrepreneurs and the global elite. Environmentalism is now the home of socialists, ex-communists and anti-Americans. For generations there have been those who would like to destroy American freedom as provided by the constitution and replace it with all-inclusive government control over lives.

The Right to Defend Sovereignty
by Nancy Salvato
It is written in the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. Each and every one of us has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A seemingly simple idea, it's the definition of when a life begins or should end, when the liberty of one being is to be considered encroaching on the liberty of another, and on the meaning of personal happiness on which we disagree. 

Freedom of Choice Act: Facts & Myths
by Armand C. Hale
The Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) is the most radical piece of abortion legislation in United States history. Obama has stated that this is one piece of legislation he wants to get pushed through the 111th Congress. FOCA would literally do an end run on all existing controls concerning abortion in this country. Below are the facts and myths on the so called FOCA legislation.

Freedom is NOT for Everyone - Even in the Home of the Brave
by JB Williams
More than anything else, the 2008 presidential election proves that freedom is not for everyone, including in the land of the free and home of the brave. All campaign rhetoric aside, when we get right down to the meat and potatoes of what the incoming Progressive Democrat movement represents, we find that it represents a growing public interest in a government run by the Marxist principles of each according to his ability or need, rather than the American principles of each free to do as they please, with liberty and justice for all.

Rich White Trash
by Paul R. Hollrah
At approximately 12:30 PM on Tuesday, January 20, 2009, the first members of Barack Hussein Obama’s official staff will walk up the sidewalk from the parking area between the White House and the Old Executive Office Building and enter the north entrance of the west wing. They will find the offices neat and clean, the desks and file cabinets all empty, the supply cabinets well stocked, the floors and carpets freshly cleaned, and telephones, computers, and FAX machines all in place and in working order, ready to be put to use.

Gaza & The One-World Media's Propaganda
by Frank Salvato

As the Israelis continue their push into Gaza; as they continue an offensive military campaign against Hamas, born of the need to protect Israeli civilians from rockets fired by Hamas jihadis, it is almost impossible to gather accurate information regarding the conflict, at least not from the mainstream media. The accounts advanced by mainstream news sources are so devoid of balance – and, thusly, devoid of a whole and honest truth – that their product reaches a caliber of propaganda not seen since the disinformation campaigns of the Third Reich. Goebbels would be envious.

Why President Bush Is So Reviled
by Christopher G. Adamo
It is understandable that conservatives would automatically avoid any action that might seem comparable to that of the left. Therefore, given that the liberal political/media cabal has been so unilaterally contemptuous of the Bush Administration, those on the right must be extremely judicious in their own evaluation of this President. To be sure, President Bush has done a few things right during his two terms.

The Folly of Fanaticism
by Alan Burkhart
One would expect that as time goes by and mankind progresses and hopefully becomes wiser, we'd be more likely to take a logical approach to all things. And while some do exactly that, a disturbingly large and I fear growing number of people are retreating into fanaticism. WordNet 3.0 (2006 by Princeton U.) defines fanaticism as an "excessive intolerance of opposing views." Know anyone who fits that description?

Is a Presidential Inauguration Just a Silly Ceremony?
by JB Williams

As America prepares to inaugurate Barack Hussein Obama as its next president, despite claims of his constitutional ineligibility and a résumé void of any qualified expertise for such a lofty position, all at such a tumultuous time in history, I found myself searching for historical relevance for such an occasion.

Produce a birth certificate and end all questions
by Vincent Gioia
When I applied for a passport I was asked to supply my birth certificate. This seemed like a reasonable request; how else could the passport office know I was entitled to an American passport? I was not seeking to become president of the United States; I wasn’t even trying to enroll in any of the plethora of government welfare programs, I was merely doing something as a citizen I had a right to do.

by Paul R. Hollrah
As the Founding Fathers debated in the Assembly Room of Independence Hall in Philadelphia during the summer of 1787, they struggled with the questions of how to design a lasting republic for the people of the newly independent colonies. In an age long before radio and television, and years before the electric telegraph, when the three-century-old Gutenberg press was still the state of the art in printing; the Founding Fathers were haunted by fears of political intrigue…

Real Electoral Reform
by Paul R. Hollrah
Thomas Jefferson once said, “Whenever people are well-informed they can be trusted with their own government.” On another occasion he spoke even more clearly; he said, “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be.” The election of Barack Obama on November 4 illustrates precisely what Jefferson had in mind. In a November 13-15 Zogby poll of 512 Obama voters… 97.1% high school graduates and 55% college graduates… we learned that:

Can they make enough Beano for all the cows and pigs to save the planet?
by Vincent Gioia
My friend Harry is worried. You see, he has a flatulence problem. Even though he avoids beans and the other usual suspects, he is still a greenhouse gas emitter. Harry is not a rich man so he is concerned what his problem will cost him after Barack Hussein Obama becomes president. To save the planet we will give up our main stay light bulbs and in California at least our big screen TVs; but Harry is now worried that his “problem” may take on previously unforeseen consequences.

The Global Warming Crescendo Has Passed
by Christopher G. Adamo
As the cold of winter settles in on the northern hemisphere, all of the hysteria of global warming, or its less specific alternative climate change, rings increasingly hollow to the general public. Weather patterns of the past decade indicate that the planet has been in an undeniable cooling trend since prior to the new millennium. So the panicked prophesies of cataclysmic upturns in the earth's average temperature simply do not carry the emotional impact that they once held.

Thank You, President Bush
by Joan Swirsky
As I type this article, I think of the figurative-millions of both mundane and serious things I’ve done over the past seven-and-a-half years with absolute confidence in America’s safety. That confidence was inspired by the steadfast leadership and unblinking courage of President George W. Bush, as he faced our country’s most deadly enemies and succeeded in preventing another ghastly attack on American soil after September 11th.

Resident-Elect Obama Sets NEW Tone in Washington?
by JB Williams

Because Barack Obama is constitutionally unqualified to become president of the United States under Article II – Section I of the US Constitution, he is set to become the First (government housing) Resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in US history. But before resident-elect Barack Obama can be crowned the official messiah on January 20th, he has hit a few snags in his promise to “change” leftist corruption in Washington DC.

Little Israel fights for its safety while the rest of the world wrings its hands
by Vincent Gioia
Israel is racing against time as it wages a massive ground invasion of Gaza before international pressure obliges Israel to cease its assault. The masterful Arab public relations onslaught is underway as the news media reports every Arab death and especially when each child that is killed. Of course no mention is made of the Hamas use of innocents as shields so Israel can’t help to kill civilians as the battles continue.

The California Taxpayer Protection Act
by Armand C. Hale
I want to call attention to a statewide initiative in California that may change the debate on the automatic citizenship that is wrongly bestowed upon children born to illegal aliens and foreign visitors in the United States. The initiative is call The California Taxpayer Protection Act. This initiative is being planned for the June 2010 California ballot. This may seem like a distant point on the horizon, but it's really not when you consider the herculean efforts necessary to secure a spot on the ballot in the state.

Something is Rotten… in the U.S. Senate
by Paul R. Hollrah
What is perhaps the most remarkable event in the history of the U.S. Senate occurred on May 21, 1856. As Sen. Charles Sumner (R-MA) denounced an attack by 800 pro-slavery Democrats on the small abolitionist town of Lawrence, Kansas, he was suddenly and viciously attacked from behind by Preston Brooks, a South Carolina Democrat. Brooks struck Sumner over the head repeatedly with a cane… knocking him unconscious… and when his Republican colleagues rushed to his side they were attacked by other Democrats and a major fist fight ensued.

Coal is still ‘King’, despite what Obama says
by Vincent Gioia
When you are cold you want heat; that’s true all over the world. If nothing else is available, wood fires do the trick. Have you not seen a movie where one of the first things done in cold weather is to build a fire, usually with wood? It’s impossible to know how much “damage” to the environment and how much global warming was caused by wood fires burned since man learned how to make fire. Natural fires also cause huge amounts of damage to the planet and can be assumed to be a major source of global warming but laws declaring natural fires such as caused by lightening will be ineffective despite what the Sierra Club may wish.

Dems to Run the Country Like They Ran Their Blue States (Into the Ground)
by JB Williams

Just as no non-union manufacturer is asking for a government bailout, only Democrat run states are begging for federal funds to avoid the inevitable bankruptcy of the states they have run into the ground. In addition to Bush’s trillion dollar nationalization of the financial industry, and in addition to Barack Obama’s trillion dollar “stimulus package” (aka affirmative action welfare initiative), another trillion dollars in new national debt is being demanded by a group of Democrat governors who have run their states into the ground.

Democrat hypocrisy exposed
by Vincent Gioia
There is little doubt that Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is not a nice man but the fact is he is not yet a felon and still remains the lawful governor of the state. U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald has shown that “Blago” uses bad language, is a political hustler and wants to play “Chicago politics”, but it remains to be seen if he is a criminal because he has not been tried in court and has not been declared guilty of any crime, except in the court of public opinion. Because of his ties to president-elect Obama, the Democrat party condemns Blago in the hope the problem will go away and cease to make headlines that may call attention to the corruptness of the Democrat Party and Democrats themselves.

Ineligible Obama Playing with Constitutional Fire
by JB Williams
Numerous legal challenges have been filed in an effort to force president-elect Barack Obama to validate his constitutional eligibility for the office he seeks and while it is true that suit after suit has been denied in the courts, it is also true that all of them have been denied on a technicality rather than on the merits of the case against Obama. And although Obama could have ended the debate months ago by simply delivering a $10.00 certified copy of his official birth records to prove his constitutional edibility, he has instead chosen to spend nearly a million bucks in legal defense fees hoping to run out the clock and assume office before any of the legal challenges will be heard by the courts.

Israel’s Disproportionate Response
by Jonathan Mark
I condemn Israel’s disproportionate attack on Hamas because, so far, it has only lasted three days and I would like to see a proportionate response that terrifies Hamas for seven years, the years that have filled Sderot and neighboring towns with nightmares, death, amputations and trauma coming from rockets and mortars fired from Gaza. Perhaps a proportionate response would have Gaza’s leaders fearful of being killed every day for the next two years, as Gilad Shalit has been terrified of torture and death every day for the last two years in his solitary Gaza dungeon. A proportionate response would have Hamas mothers and fathers as fearful for their children’s lives as Shalit’s mother and father have been fearful for Gilad’s life.

The Liberal Architects of Chaos
by Christopher G. Adamo
Does it seem that calamity and disorder are on the increase lately? Everything in our nation and world currently gives the impression that it is coming apart at the seams; from those dangerously high prices at the pump last summer, to the equal uneasiness of such low gas prices at present, to the economic meltdown and dubious "bailout," to the corruption eruption in Illinois, to the outbreak of a new war in the Middle-East. And the list goes on. Even on that infamous date September 11, 2001, though a stunned America was momentarily uncertain of what its future held, the general understanding was that the nation would identify the culprits, take appropriate action to deal with them, and thereby ensure an eventual return to normality.

Cynthia McKinney: Blockade Runner
by Alan Burkhart
How is it that liberals like Cynthia McKinney almost always end up on the wrong side of important issues? From global warming to taxation to foreign affairs, far too often they come down across the fence from the best interests of America and her allies. The present conflict between Israel and Hamas is a fine example. Essentially surrounded by enemies, Israel is a peaceful nation in a rather unfortunate location. Through the course of their history, virtually every truce, treaty and cease-fire agreement has been broken. Not by Israel, but by their Muslim neighbors. Who can blame Israel for defending themselves? Evidently former GA congresswoman Cynthia McKinney does. Cynthia has called upon President-elect Barack Obama to "speak out against the attacks on Gaza."

America tolerates preaching overthrow of government; we didn’t before
by Vincent Gioia
There was a time, now disparaged by liberals, when it was considered un-American to advocate the overthrow of the United States. Indeed, even congress thought so and launched investigations to reveal by “outing” prominent people who harbored such thoughts and philosophies. Of course, in today’s age of political correctness, and worse, those investigators are defiled and the guilty are revered. Many of those discovered to be un-American resided in Hollywood but others were in government and in classified research. Our arch enemy at the time, the Soviet Union, advanced there own research programs with the help of these “un-Americans.”

United Nations’ power will grow under President Obama
by Vincent Gioia
Our incoming president has many plans that will drastically affect our country but few are more insidious and far reaching than his legislation to address “global poverty.” Obama said “Eliminating global poverty remains one of the greatest challenges we face, with billions of people around the world forced to live on just dollars a day. We can – and must – make it a priority of our foreign policy ...” While in the senate our president-elect Barack Hussein Obama (it’s ok to use his middle name now) joined with RINO U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) and Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) to introduce the Global Poverty Act (S.2433).

A trillion here, a trillion there, pretty soon it adds up to real money
by Vincent Gioia
It used to be that a billion dollars was a lot of money. Senator Everett Dirksen, a senator back in the age of reason once said “A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon it adds up to real money.” I wonder what the good senator would say now. We have gone well beyond the idea that a billion dollars is “real money.” Today as we approach the age of socialism real money is measured in trillions of dollars. Of course socialists don’t talk about trillions of dollars; like in everything else they practice, success is achieved by “incrementalism”.

SOMETHING OF HISTORIC PROPORTIONS IS HAPPENING
by Tim Wood
I am a student of history. Professionally. I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied it all my life. I think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus. Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten - fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

I'm from the government and I'm here to help you
by Vincent Gioia
So now that the Federal Reserve Bank cut its interest rate to virtually zero what does it mean to the rest of us? Nada! Zip! Nothing! Oh it does mean something; fat cats bankers already awash in “bailout money” will get even richer because with free money from the Fed they can profit from even low interest loans they make, and they will make very few of those to you and me types; it’s the big borrowers that will benefit along with the fat cat bankers. With all the money at banks disposal just try to get a zero-plus loan like the banks get from the Fed – you wont even get a loan unless you don’t need one.

Risking our Nation’s Sovereignty
by Nancy Salvato
Anyone who is successful at forging relationships has mastered the art of diplomacy. There are a few simple rules. There is a time and a place for everything. You cannot change another person, only yourself. You have to give to receive. Maintaining a balance of power is probably the most difficult. If one person denies another a relationship, there can be no balance of power because that person has taken all the control. Both parties have to want the relationship for one to occur. Any parent soon realizes that a dictatorial style will not foster loyalty or the intrinsic motivation to behave within a child. At the same time, giving in to a child’s demands grants the child all the power. A well-timed tantrum can put an end to a parent’s agenda.
