Beyond “Not Second Guessing”: Biden Wants us to “Learn Together” from China’s One-Child Policy

"There are great orators that have come along in the world history who have been charlatans." -- Joe Biden, addressing students at China's Sichuan University. On Sunday, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of Chinese college students he was not "second-guessing" the regime's vicious one-child policy of forced abortion. His crass and craven words to a group of educated people of … [Read more...]

Obama’s Downgrade May Last Until 2029

Obama scored another historical first on Friday, becoming the first president to see the U.S. credit rating downgraded by Standard & Poor's, from AAA to AA+. While we hope his presidential reign lasts no longer than January 2013, Americans may have to live with the consequences of Obamanomics for more than a decade to come. The chairman of Standard & Poor’s sovereign debt ratings, John … [Read more...]

Obama Lies About Stealth Amnesty, TSA Cancer; Media Bash Bachmann

Before the invention of movable type, newspapers created a tablet for each page they wished to print and broke it at the end of the day. If the media wanted to conserve resources, they could simply fuse the words "The Obama administration lied" to the opening line of each day's edition and fill in the blank appropriately. This week alone, the press exposed Obama administration lies -- in some … [Read more...]

Barry Bars the Door: Christians Have No Escape from Obama’s New, Gay Military

Psychological warfare is a vital component of any war. Breaking the will of the enemy and keeping your own troops motivated may help an unorganized enemy’s victory seem “inevitable,” however one must twist the truth in the process. This makes control of the media, with its ability to distract and redirect the nation’s attention, imperative. Luckily for Barack Obama, he has just this support in his … [Read more...]

Lawyer Drafts Articles of Impeachment Over Libya

by Ben Johnson Someone has finally been moved to action by Barack Obama’s increasingly lawless administration. Bruce Fein, a former high-ranking official in the Reagan Justice Department who wrote the first article of impeachment against Bill Clinton, has drawn up formal articles of impeachment against the president.

Obama’s Economic Advisers: International Socialists, Union Thugs, NBC Execs, Soros Scholars, Subprime Lenders, Amnesty Shills, and Campaign Cronies

The media enthused when Barack Obama bloviated during his State of the Union Address, “We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world.” They now enthuse that the president has appointed members to his new Council on Jobs and Competitiveness allegedly designed to cut down inefficient regulations and unnecessary government burdens. None of the media announced that the … [Read more...]

Is Obama’s New Ambassador a Communist “Asset” (Or Just a Racist)?

Before setting off on his sixth vacation of the year in elite Martha's Vineyard, Barack Obama made four recess appointments. Credible sources report the FBI once listed one of them as a Communist "asset." Obama nominated Maria (or "Mari") del Carmen Aponte as ambassador to El Salvador last December, but it was not her first nomination. In 1998, Bill Clinton nominated her ambassador to the … [Read more...]

Kagan’s Heroes

Note:  It’s worth comparing this article with Sen. Jon Kyl’s opening statement in Kagan’s confirmation hearings, which seems to have drawn on the same sources -- or used this article as an uncredited source. It's reassuring that I was on the same wavelength as Kyl. This article is part two of a series on Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. To read part one, (“Elena Kagan and Social Issues”) click … [Read more...]

Sotomayor’s Racialist Judicial Activism

This article originally appeared as the weekend lead for Friday, June 26, 2009. Five months later, it was chosen for inclusion in Opposing Viewpoints, America's Prisons, vol. 2. The inclusion is a special honor for me. Not only is the Opposing Viewpoints series in nearly every high school library in the country, but it provides an invaluable service: fairly representing conflicting views on an … [Read more...]

Department of Hopeless Speculation

ALTHOUGH MUCH HAS BEEN WRITTEN ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY's recent report insulting veterans and conservatives, it overlooks the victim of the paper's most obvious insult: its reader's intelligence. The DHS report not only assumes veterans are a violence-prone group readily influenced by "rightwing" extremism but misdiagnoses the most likely source of terrorism and misconstrues the … [Read more...]
