Why Did He Even Bother Running? Obama Leadership Vacuum Menaces Globe
By Kelly O’Connell Full Story
Has any modern political figure ever squandered political goodwill in the manner of Obama—trading near messianic devotion from a hundred million for not even a cup of proverbial porridge in return? His political pratfalls occur only as often as he makes decisions. But even the most hardened Obama backers had to shudder and roll their eyes this week when Barack fixated on college basketball “brackets” instead of ongoing tragedy, chaos and the loss of tens of thousands. It became transparent—in a way in which only disasters bring clarity—that Obama is a boy amongst men, only haphazardly observing history’s progress the way a house cat mindlessly follows a fluttering object.
It’s About the Power Struggle
By Daniel Greenfield Full Story
Bad ideas are a dime a dozen. It’s when political systems are based around bad ideas that the problem begins. You can argue with a bad idea, but you can’t argue with an institution. All you can do is argue around the institution. Wisconsin gave us a showdown between a state facing a cash crunch and a public sector union. It was not a battle of ideas—but of power.
The modern American union gives the left a cut of every unionized business. It forces the employees and indirectly the owners, to put money into the party coffers, vote for their causes and donate to their candidates. The union is sacrosanct to the left because it shifts power from the owners to them. If unions actually shifted power over to the workers, the left wouldn’t bother with them. Unions that did that would be their worst nightmare. The Democratic party values unions as organizing machines, not out of any romantic notion of workers’ rights.

Isn’t it about time that the mainstream media and all others begin to examine the record and conclude that a Communist holds the reins of power in the White House?
Since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, it is often believed that Communism died with it. Not so; Communism is alive and well in China, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela.
Is Boehner Letting Us Down by Taking Obama Off the Spending Hook?
By Jerry McConnell Full Story
What’s going on, Mr. Speaker? Are you becoming another Nancy Pelosi double talking, slick acting puppet of Obama? Why are you obstructing the efforts of two House members, Utah’s Steve King and Minnesota’s Michele Bachmann to eliminate the ObamaCare slush fund?
It seems as though every time the GOP gets control of an important part of our government they go soft and languish while the things that the liberals like to do are allowed to keep slipping out of their hands; why are you
letting that happen, Mr. Speaker?
