Debbie Schlussel uncovers something that should worry everyone.
Deroy Murdock makes the case against Sharia-Compliant Financing.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has its latest press release on the building of Fallujah’s first central sewage treatment facility. You see, people who put down their morning papers are far more attuned to the realities in Iraq than are those who stick their noses in the daily Pinch garbage dispenser.
Here's a retch-worthy CNN puff-piece.
How's this for a humor filler: Obama buys more votes.
This just in: terror blast at bus station in Nepal for election run-up. Something we just don't get here.
Dinesh D'souza continues to impress.
Obama just said he's not in favor of concealed weapons. Okay - so I guess security detail for our next President is out the window. Won't do much good when a radical assassinates the apostate after Friday services.
Next: NASA astronauts to start using zero-gravity pencils!
Amir Peretz should have learned that from the moment his binocular lenses were covered, so should too his mouth.
As of this point, Democrat really have to stop whining about GOP 527s.
Swiss foreign minister Micheline Calmy-Rey needs to be reviewed to be believed.
In all our zeal over Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq, let us not forget the battle against political Islamist forces being waged in India and central Asia.
Though I'm not all gung-ho for alternative fuels, I do take pride when Boeing flies a hydrogen-powered plane, and when efficiently practical methods devised to power hydrogen cars are explored But I digress on the issue of true nutballs.
I linked to Qadaffi's schpiel in my previous post, and now I present rebuttal from Khudayr Taher.
For those strongly against revisionism, here's the low-down on 1850s Jerusalem Jewry.
Also in my previous post, I referenced the anti-Christianity prevalent in Sudan and the Palestinian territories. Now I bring forth Pakistan and, wouldya believe it, our own US of A.
Eh...not a sure-fire way to attract a large atheist population, but Obama and Gore minions might find comfort in Austria.
Some words from a writer in Iran on the Mullah's two faves: Carter and Obama.
The one city more corrupt that Chicago is finally exposed.
Oh, I'm sorry, did you want an illegal wiretap scandal. Okay then - I'll give you one.
Howard Veit explains why the mainstream press is losing ad revenue and why Europe is getting its balls back.
And here's Howard on "market reform":
The Democrats will kill the new Treasury Proposals and an ignorant public and a media that hates Republicans will support them. The Democrats are literally in the pocket with CFTC regulated markets (commodities) and will tolerate nothing that might stop their gravy train, meaning the farm states continue to be the recipients of the biggest welfare handouts on the books (Iowa is virtually a client state). The Democrats are also for more regulation, meaning the government will oversee markets so much that we are liable to lose our place as the financial capital of the world. This is an election year and look for the biggest two bums in the Democratic Party: Charles Schumer (NY) and John Dingell (IL) to be spouting off on TV this AM. Dingell in particular is a pretentious menace. He is either stupid (very unlikely) or just one more bribe taking politician. This will be all about turf and corporate (agribusiness manufacturing, etc.) interests getting more and more government "help." This along with almost forcing companies to accept unionization, compulsory dues to unions, and new taxes.
BTW: the BS regarding capital gains is just that: BS. The truth is that the imposition of the Alternate Minimum Tax (ATM) rules on cap gains mean that most taxes on capital gains hover around 23%. The Republicans sat on their asses in Congress and did nothing (what?) for eight years and cap gains inertia and failure to reform the odious ATM are simply another couple of reasons that they are being thrown out on their asses. When history is writ you will find that Republicans killed capitalism. They are just plain bums.
More on the Democrat love affair with commodities, and Dr. Sanity throws the media into the mix with its "economic hallucinosis."
Burning midnight oil in NY: Once again, the state legislature is going to be passing budget bills in the middle of the night, and taxpayers will feel the burn once the new taxes and fees hit home.
Indeed - compare, for example Los Angeles and Japan. I recommend readers read Geoff Colvin's take on taxes. And Mike Volpe schools Barney Frank and the Dem POTUS candidates.
Coulter arguably flattens the Obama candidancy with this book review, while Nina May smacks down his Philly speech. And slowly, but surely, the Rezko trial is slowly creeping ever closer to Obama.
Today's slowly evolving revolt against Blagojevich is highly amusing. Cellini and Peters and Levine slowly cave while the Rezko connection magnifies. Blagojevich is facing a downfall. This whole thing is bigger than most realize. This extends to voter fraud in MO and the NYC Council Speaker.
Rush asks listeners to focus on liberal ignorance of historical American economic liberties.
Julian Krasta talks foreign policy, Tom Blumer delivers a blow to social security, and Newt Gingrich displays traditional conservatism.
Gore's antidepressant is expiring.
Did you hear that? Taxation doesn't lead to Kyoto. But even with the discovery of Bakken (#4), and the Wyoming governor is endorsing Obama (#6) because neither wants to drill for the portion of the formation in that state.
Moreover, Rush deciphers the reality of Obama, as does Rove:
Have you gotten to know Hillary or Barack to any degree?
Yes, I have.
What have been your dealings with them?
Well, you know, I used to have her office at the White House. And I got to know [Obama] because we have a mutual friend, Ken Mehlman, who was his law-school classmate at Harvard. And so as a result, whenever in the last three years he's been around at the White House, I've gotten to see him, and we sort of would hang around and chitchat about things. I'm actually in his book. He wrote that "people like Newt Gingrich, Tom Delay, Ralph Reed, and Karl Rove say we are a Christian nation." And I did not say that. I confronted him about it. At the White House.
And what did he say?
Well, first he denied that I was in the book! And then he denied that it said that I said that it was a Christian nation. And then when I pulled out the thing [he had a copy of the offensive page with him] and showed it to him, he sort of blah-blah-blah-blah-blah- blah-blah. And I thought, That's who he is. I mean, look, he may claim that he's for a different kind of politics, but that was a cheap shot. And I'm not certain if any of the four said it either. But it was like, you know, Let's just strap it in there and see if it goes someplace. Another example: Him saying, "We honor John McCain for his fifty years of service" was a cheap shot. He was going out of his way to say John McCain's old.
