Did Rob Portman flip-flop on gay “marriage” for campaign cash?

Ohio Senator Rob Portman states that his flip-flop on gay “marriage” was inspired by his homosexual son – a stance that has won him few plaudits from the LGBT Lobby – but it is possible he had baser motives: he may have wanted to raise cold, hard cash. In an article entitled "Republicans see cash opportunity in gay marriage shift," Politico notes: Portman himself has taken heat from New York … [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.

The Left’s Man at Commerce

AT THEIR BEST, POLITICAL APPOINTMENTS are a function of accomplishment, expertise, or judgment. At their worst, they are the consolation prize of cronyism.

The Capitol Police Slap Back

THE FAR-LEFT HAS BEEN GIVING THE CAPITOL POLICE A BEATING, literally and figuratively. This week, the good guys finally stood up for themselves – and the law. The “confrontation” between Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-GA, and a Capitol policeman grew out of the police force’s kid gloves treatment of another left-wing protester. Although the media focused on her inappropriate attire, police … [Read more...]

A Failed Former President

The only thing more painful than listening to Jimmy Carter lecture President Bush on how to conduct a successful presidency was living through his disastrous attempt to turn his advice into reality. As I noted earlier this week, Carter has channeled his hatred of non-leftists, secular and religious, into a glut of slanders in his new bestseller, Our Endangered Values. He charges his … [Read more...]

Al Gore’s Alternate Reality

Former "real president" and Current TV owner Al Gore scored a 7 on the MoveOn meter during his remarks in Stockholm, Sweden, yesterday.

Joseph Wilson’s Amazing Left-Wing Dreamland

AS THE SEEMINGLY ENDLESS SPIDERWEB OF LIES SPUN BY former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV unravels, the media have gone out of their way to question the credibility of…Karl Rove. Despite Rove’s demonstrable non-leak of Valerie Plame’s non-secret identity, the dogs continue to gather, hungry for a second term scandal, while the Wilsons’ blatant self-promotion erodes whatever basis they had for … [Read more...]
