“The Final Curtain…..?”

Posted: 30 Jun 2010 10:58 PM PDT

"How Much Worse Can Things Get" Dr. Lauritz W Heinze Not much to crow about these days here in the grand old Republic; no, not by a long shot. Perhaps when Stymie and the rest of the cast of the "Little Rascals" abdicate the Whitehouse things can turn around. Like many of the critics of my outspokenness maybe everyone haplessly believes that dumping Stymie, Darla, Alfalfa, Spanky and the rest of the lot will insure a return to "Norma…

Constitution Is Endangered If Kagan OK'd

Posted: 30 Jun 2010 08:04 PM PDT

By PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY Barack Obama revealed his goal for the Supreme Court when he complained on Chicago radio station WBEZ-FM in 2001 that the Earl Warren Court wasn't "radical" enough because "it didn't break free from the essential constraints placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution" in order to allow "redistribution of wealth." Now that Obama is president, he has the power to nominate Supreme Court justices who will "break free" from the Constitution and join… ...

Some Thoughts on McDonald v. Chicago and the Fourteenth Amendment

Posted: 30 Jun 2010 07:44 PM PDT

By Tim Dunkin Like many other conservatives, I cheered the Supreme Court's decision on Monday in which it overturned the bases upon which Chicago's ordinance banning the ownership of handguns were predicated, and by extension, upheld the principle that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right. The Supreme Court, following upon its earlier Heller decision, has firmly ensconced the 2nd amendment into the panoply of American liberties. Finally, it seems, the right to the...

Was the Gulf an Accident

Posted: 30 Jun 2010 07:38 PM PDT

Gary Bray Woe to you Pharisees, because you LOVE the most important seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces. Luke 11:43 Could the leftists be craven enough to cause the Global Horizon disaster? Does their moral relativism reach deep enough to destroy the Gulf to stop drilling and pass Cap and Tax and nationalize the oil industry? Would they sabotage an oil well in the middle o…

Once Again, 3rd- World Mexico Fails the Democracy Test

Posted: 30 Jun 2010 07:36 PM PDT

By John W. Lillpop Mexican President Felipe Calderon needs to get his priorities straight, and in a hurry. This is so because while the muddled Mexican was lecturing the American Congress about democracy and the rule of law in Arizona, his beloved Mexico continued to fall further into the grips of drug cartels, corruption, and violence. An inconvenient truth looms for the addled Calderon: Mexico has lost the war to drug cartels,…

President Alfred E. Obama

Posted: 30 Jun 2010 07:34 PM PDT

David Limbaugh Observing President Obama's relentlessly reckless approach to our nation's fiscal integrity is reminiscent of the signature phrase of Mad magazine's Alfred E. Neuman, "What, me worry?" Obama struck again last week at the G-20 conference in Toronto, urging other nations to follow his Pied Piper lead into deficit spending hell. Unlike recent U.S. presidents who recognized and touted this nation as the world's exemplar for economic growth and prosperity, Obama is turning us...

Obama: Promoting the Negative, Discouraging the Positive

Posted: 30 Jun 2010 07:33 PM PDT

Michael Medved National anger at corruption and incompetence in Washington centers increasingly on a peculiar, profoundly maddening quirk of the Obama administration: its consistent, irrational impulse to reward bad behavior and to punish constructive conduct. The now powerful Tea Party movement began with an on-air rant in February, 2009 by Rick Santelli of CNBC, who complained of a costly new program to protect homeowners who had recklessly committed themselves to unaffordable...

Gore: 'Come on, Baby, Release my Chakra'

Ben Shapiro Al Gore didn't merely invent the Internet. He invented romance. At least that's how the mainstream media played his marriage to Tipper. When he Frenched her on national television in 2000, the journalistic crowd swooned. "In Vice President Al Gore's campaign to change his robotic image," gushed The New York Times, "nothing may have helped more than the big smooch ... the kiss had an old-fashioned, romantic innocence." Now, that "old-fashioned, romantic innocence" has...

How Obama Bungled the Oil Spill: An Inside Story

Posted: 30 Jun 2010 07:31 PM PDT

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann It's one thing to say that President Obama's administration showed its ineptitude and mismanagement in its handling of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. It is quite another to grasp the situation up close, as I did during a recent visit to Alabama. According to state disaster relief officials, Alabama conceived a plan -- early on -- to erect huge booms offshore to shield the approximately 200 miles of its coastline from oil. Rather than install the relatively...

Obama's Coffee House Loophole

Posted: 30 Jun 2010 07:30 PM PDT

Michelle Malkin President Obama is finally uniting the left and the right -- in joint opposition to his administration's chronic sabotage of transparency and public disclosure rules. It won't be long before liberals disillusioned by Dear Leader's reveal-as-we-say-not-as-we-conceal policies link arms with me and join in on my 2-year-old chant: Obama lied, transparency died. Watchdog groups and Republicans on Capitol Hill want an investigation into hundreds of White House meetings with...

Where Best To Be Poor

Posted: 30 Jun 2010 07:28 PM PDT

Walter E. Williams Imagine you are an unborn spirit whom God has condemned to a life of poverty but has permitted to choose the nation in which to live. I'm betting that most any such condemned unborn spirit would choose the United States. Why? What has historically been defined as poverty, nationally or internationally, no longer exists in the U.S. Let's look at it. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the 2009 poverty guideline was $22,000 for an urban...
