On the heels of the National Defense Authorization Act’s indefinite detention provision and Attorney General Eric Holder’s unfortunate “the U.S. government has the right to kill you” speech and while the word “terrorist” is used ever more loosely, left-wing activists groups are ramping up their campaigns against those who believe in smaller government.
President Barack Obama decided to elevate Tony West to the position of acting associate attorney general, which will rank him third on the ladder at the Department of Justice. West currently serves as the assistant attorney general for the Civil Division. Promoting him is a bad decision.
The Obama regime’s desire to find a wedge issue to exploit in a political season and the fill-in-the-blanks nature of Obamacare are behind the contrived contraception controversy that exploded into the headlines last week.

Yesterday morning, two American soldiers and one American citizen working as a teacher were killed in separate shootings in Afghanistan, supposedly in retaliation for the burning of a few copies of the Quran. That brings the total of Americans killed over the incident to six. I have to ask: Why are we still there?
Liberals from the ivory towers of the corporate media to the sewers of the left-wing blogosphere have raised the hue and cry about firearms in the wake of the killing of three students, allegedly at the hand of the severely disturbed T.J. Lane in Chardon, Ohio.
While politicians deflect, defend and blame and consumers grouse about Big Oil, large profits and offshore drilling, almost no one is discussing what’s really happening to the price of gasoline at the pump. Gas prices are reflecting inflation.
I recently faced an attack from a liberal acquaintance. This fellow objected strongly to my remarking on the hypocrisy that tagged along on first lady Michelle Obama’s vacation to the spectacularly wealthy ski resort of Aspen, Colo.
