No One Remembers Barack Obama From Columbia
30 Nov 2009 11:50 am Melissa Clouthier
An email is going around with this as the content:
NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA
Looking for evidence of Obama’s past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but none remembered him.
Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, “I don’t know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me.
I don’t have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia . …
In Defense Of Mike Huckabee: The Maurice Clemmons Clemency
30 Nov 2009 11:34 am John Hawkins
Mike Huckabee apparently should have erred more on the side of caution in dispensing pardons when he was governor of Arkansas. He pardoned rapist Wayne DuMond, who then later raped another woman. Now, it looks like he’s done it again — well, sort of. Maurice Clemmons, the lunatic who murdered four policemen, was given clemency nine years ago by Huckabee:
Clemmons was arrested at age 17 and sentenced to 95 years in prison in 1989 for a host of charges, including robberies, burglaries, thefts and bringing a gun to school. But …
Cindy Shehag Still Spreading Patriotic Cheer
30 Nov 2009 11:23 am Dave Blount
Cindy Sheehan was the darling of the liberal media establishment, before it dumped her for its new love, Barack Hussein Obama. But she’s still out there promoting the progressive agenda. Here she displays her respect for a veteran:
This sordid scene occurred at Travis Air Force Base on Saturday.
Videotape of the incident shows that Sheehan yelled “Get out of my face” through the megaphone at the man, who slapped the device away. Other protesters immediately joined Sheehan and traded insults with the man, and a shoving match broke out.
Military police quickly …
Chairman Zero Falls Flat With Arabs
30 Nov 2009 11:18 am Dave Blount
Of all the annoying bumper sticker bleats that Obamunists subject us to, the most absurd is their cherished notion that letting a sophomoric community activist moonbat play president will “restore America’s standing in the world.” America’s standing didn’t need restoration, although it will before this tragic farce is over with.
But everyone likes us now, right? Never mind our loyal friends — Poles and Czechs, for example — they don’t fly planes into buildings so they don’t matter. Arabs like us, right?
Wrong. I’m no fan of Islam, but I’ll say this …
Obama Knew The Crashers? He Met Them Before
30 Nov 2009 11:17 am Melissa Clouthier
In case you missed it this weekend…
Is there more to this story? The Anchoress thinks so. Gateway Pundit has more details about how the Crashers are buddies with Obama’s buddy terrorist-loving Rashid Khalidi.
Anyway, American Power has more. I just wanted you guys to know that there might be more story behind the fame-grabbing meme–which is for sure true.
At the very least, this is more evidence of an amateurish administration.
NBC and CBS Researching Climategate; Still No Coverage [Proof]
30 Nov 2009 11:09 am Alex Nobles
So NBC, and CBS, if you see this blog know that you now have no excuse not to cover climategate. The American people have a right to know what is going on, not just what fits your agenda. We are sick and tired of the lack of coverage of important stories like this one. Perhaps, it would actually lead to more viewers. Then again… if you did your job, I wouldn’t have to.
Check out these images below for proof.
“You’ve Come A Long Way, Maybe”
30 Nov 2009 10:52 am Kathleen McKinley
Leslie Sanchez, a Republican strategist and former advisor to President George Bush, has written a timely book about politics and the American woman. In “You’ve Come A Long Way, Maybe,” she takes a hard non partisan look at three woman in particular. Sarah Palin, Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton.
It is fascinating to compare such three distinctly different women, the paths they chose, and the paths which were chosen for them. Sanchez gives us an overview of what this means for the future of women in high office, and she asks …
Obama: King of All Statists
30 Nov 2009 10:00 am Warner Todd Huston
Almost 40% of William Howard Taft’s cabinet officials were from the private sector. Ike had nearly 60% of his appointees sporting private sector experience. Reagan had about 55% and George W. Bush about 53%. Even FDR and Truman had half their cabinet officials with private sector experience.
Less than 10%.
That means that only about 7% of Barack Hussein Obama’s cabinet appointees ever worked in the private sector. So is it any wonder that Barack Obama has become the president responsible for an unprecedented bloating of the federal government and …
Michael Moore Asks If Obama Has Drunk The Bush Kool Aid

This is going to leave a mark. Of course, Obama listens to no one but Obama and his political advisers, clueless all (found during a venture into the fever swamps of the DU)

Dear President Obama,
Do you really want to be the new “war president”? If you go to West Point tomorrow night (Tuesday, 8pm) and announce that you are increasing, rather than withdrawing, the troops in Afghanistan, you are the new war president. Pure and simple. And with that you will do the worst possible thing you …
Andrew Sullivan Begins The Week Doing Another Sarah Palin Gynecological Exam
30 Nov 2009 8:47 am Melissa Clouthier
Andrew Sullivan, is, in a word, tedious:
I’ve emailed Bellow asking him about the fact-checking process for “Going Rogue.” Getting an on-the-record confirmation that, for example, Harper Collins reviewed the medical records proving Palin’s multiple medical stories (including corrected hospital records by her own account) would be a useful piece of information. Since it appears that the McCain campaign knew nothing of these rumors, and indeed, by some accounts, nothing even of Bristol’s pregnancy, it would be reassuring to know that someone somewhere has actually sought proof of some of Palin’s …
Now A Climahysteric Org. Wants Doctors To Discuss AGW With Patients
30 Nov 2009 8:05 am William Teach
The road AGW is traveling down has taken a turn from Silly Lane (worse acne, alligators in the Thames, collapse of gingerbread houses) to Stupidity Rd.
The Climate and Health Council, a collaboration of worldwide health organisations including the Royal College of Nursing, the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal Society of Medicine, believes there is a direct link between climate change and better health.
Of course, that isn’t anything new. There have been all sorts of chicken little fairy tales about AGW harming people’s health. Of …
The Lameness of Adam Lambert
30 Nov 2009 6:08 am Robert Stacy McCain
Let’s face it, he’s boring — which my latest column at The American Spectator is certainly not:
At some point, reasonable people might expect an end to these épater les bourgeoisie gestures, as the bourgeoisie have long since ceased to be shocked by such routine public exhibitions. . . .
More than four decades have gone by since Philip Larkin poetically joked about sex having been invented in 1963, “Between the end of the Chatterley ban/And the Beatles’ first LP.” Nevertheless, there stubbornly persists within the self-styled “artistic community” the assumption that …

* ACORN needs to be destroyed, if only to prove that connected liberals still have to obey the law like the rest of us.
* After having been lazy for a couple of days, I think I finally see what the lazy people see. It’s quite relaxing.
* There is no such thing as “proving your worth.” Every day you have to prove yourself all over again.

The Best Quotes From Eric Hoffer’s “The True Believer.”
30 Nov 2009 4:24 am John Hawkins
Back in 1951, Eric Hoffer wrote a brilliant book called The True Believer.
From the intro, here’s what it’s designed to explain:
“This book deals with some of the peculiarities common to all mass movements, be they religious movements, social revolutions, or national movements. It does not maintain that all movements are identical, but that they share certain essential characteristics which give them a family likeness.”
As political junkies, this is right up our alley — and I found it to be very illuminating. Hopefully, you will feel the same way.
The fact that …
Secret Service Interviews Tareq and Michaele Salahi: Comprehensive White House Security Review Expected Soon
29 Nov 2009 11:27 pm Donald Douglas
There are two MSM reports out tonight, and in print newspapers in the morning. From the New York Times, “Secret Service Interviews Gate-Crashers“:
As part of a broadening inquiry into presidential security, Secret Service agents have interviewed the Virginia couple who sneaked into a White House state dinner last week, a senior federal official involved in the investigation said Sunday.
The interviews, which took place Friday and Saturday, were conducted in a neutral location, neither the home of the couple, Michaele and Tareq Salahi, nor the Secret Service’s downtown offices, the official …
Bringing new meaning to sleazy
29 Nov 2009 9:34 pm Ron Coleman
This advertising campaign is, well, bad. Very, very bad.
There is a certain irony, though, you know.
The defense representation being offered here is in fact completely legitimate — n0t only to sleazeballs, slime and creeps, who are constitutionally entitled to their defense (just not by me), but to people involved in all sorts of disputes (but typically divorces) who are wrongfully accused of being sleazeballs, slime and creeps.
But the choices made in these ads completely undermines that bona fide prospective, mainly because in the graphic, hyper-realistic and borderline pornographic pictures, …
Global Warming: Faith, Reason and the Temple Cult of Scientism
29 Nov 2009 2:57 pm Robert Stacy McCain
Devastating revelations about the bogus science of the climate-change fanatics inspired me Saturday to reflect on the Temple Cult of Scientism:
The High Priests perform their statistical rituals and the cultists genuflect reverently before their idol, Science.
Today’s latest news — that the original data which generated the global-warming thesis were long ago destroyed — prompted further reflections on Faith and Reason:
One reason that abortion is such a sacred right to some Baby Boomers is that they were deceived by the “Population Bomb” hoax of the 1960s and ’70s, when neo-Malthusians warned …
Those DVD ‘Special Features’ Rarely that Special
29 Nov 2009 12:44 pm Warner Todd Huston
For some lighter fare today…
When DVDs first began to contain those now ubiquitous special features, those mini documentaries, series of interviews, or behind the scenes shoots, it seemed like such an exciting idea, especially for film buffs (or series fans). But now that they have become fairly common and now that I’ve seen a lot of them, I have to say that they are almost entirely worthless for anything other than time-wasting, disc stuffers.
Did you know that JJ Abrams is a great camera shaker and is “the life” of the …
ClimateGate: CRU Agrees To Publish All The Data. That They Haven’t Thrown Away
29 Nov 2009 8:33 am William Teach
Yesterday, the “scientists” involved in ClimateGate made an important announcement
Leading British scientists at the University of East Anglia, who were accused of manipulating climate change data – dubbed Climategate – have agreed to publish their figures in full.
In a statement welcomed by climate change sceptics, the university said it would make all the data accessible as soon as possible, once its Climatic Research Unit (CRU) had negotiated its release from a range of non-publication agreements.
Today, “um, well, ya see, our Bad!”
SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted …
ACLU Still Fighting Christmas
29 Nov 2009 12:57 am John Stephenson
Crossposted from STACLU:
The ACLU continues its tradition of being Scrooge to Christian free speech during the Christmas season:
The ACLU sent a letter dated Nov. 11 asking the city to “end the unlawful endorsement of religion,” claiming that the city paid for animals used in a Nativity scene. The letter accused the city of violating the First Amendment.
In the letter, the ACLU claimed the city paid $200 for animals used in a Nativity scene co-sponsored by Grace Church of the Nazarene.
Piper confirmed the city spent the money two years ago — …
