How Barack Hussein Obama made the meteoric rise from a back bench Illinois State Senator to President of the United States in a few short years has been a mystery to many, but an investigative journalist may have uncovered how it happened.
At a fundraiser in Milwaukee on Monday, President Barack Obama said in a speech, “Let’s reach for hope.” Apparently hope is all he has left.
It’s good to see civil disobedience making a comeback. As NBC’s Washington, D.C., affiliate reported recently, a group of students who were members of the conservative Young America’s Foundation High School Conference were touring the Capitol in June. While visiting the Lincoln Memorial, the group spontaneously began singing the National Anthem when a U.S. Park Police officer tried to shut them down.
In 1995 Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) took to the floor to excoriate then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) over accusations that he had violated ethics laws. Now look who’s in the hot seat.
There is no end to the folly that the de-stimulating stimulus bill has wrought. Not only has unemployment consistently remained at 9.5 percent and above, but hundreds of thousands of additional potential workers have just given up looking.

Back in January, as we were covering the increasingly Orwellian security apparatus springing up in the wake of the Christmas Day false flag bombing attack on an airliner headed for Detroit, we documented how the Department of Homeland Security insisted their new naked body scanners weren’t capable of storing images of passengers. This despite the fact that the specifications for the machines clearly mentioned the need to store and transmit images.
There are few clearer examples of a fascist system’s views of exceptionalism and innovation than one pointed out by The Washington Examiner’s Byron York in a column yesterday.
Expelled for being Christian. That’s the fate of two college graduate school students at separate universities that apparently should just put a sign out front that says, “Christianity Not Accepted Here.”
I suppose you thought the idea of American slavery ended in 1865. A United States Congressman wants to reinstate it. Ethically-challenged Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y) last week introduced in the Armed Services Committee H.R. 5741, also known as the National Service Act.
