A Window Opens Onto
the Left-Wing Conspiracy

The Democracy Alliance is not a famous organization, but it deserves to be. The Alliance consists of approximately 100 rich liberals who have taken upon themselves the task of coordinating America’s many left-wing organizations to promote a single radical agenda. The Alliance does not publicize the names of its members, but it held a conference for its “partners” and membership prospects in April, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel (naturally) in Chicago. Someone who attended the conference unfortunately (heh) left his or her copy of the documents passed out by the Democracy Alliance behind, and they eventually fell into the wrong

Malia Obama went to a famous L.A. restaurant Monday night -- a restaurant regularly frequented by celebs and paparazzi -- and when the White House found out a photog took her pic, they went into DEFCON 1 to KILL the photos. The 16-year-old went to Gjelina in Venice, CA with some friends. The photog got the pic as Malia walked out and then sent it to the AKM-GSI agency to sell. The agency posted the pic on its website for media outlets to purchase, but several hours later The First Lady´s Office called AKM-GSI and asked them to please take the

Rick Perry grabs the
mic on border crisis

Rick Perry two-stepped his way back into the national spotlight this week, using the crisis at the border to skewer President Barack Obama while pumping up his own conservative bona fides. The Republican Texas governor, who’s mulling over a 2016 presidential bid, has appeared on national TV to trash the White House’s response to the unusual influx of children at the border. He also seized headlines when he declined to simply greet Obama at the airport during a presidential visit this week, and instead pushed for a face-to-face meeting.

After 101 days in Mexican prison, Marine
Sgt. Tahmooressi to get day in court
Fox News, by Joseph J. Kolb    Original Article

On his 101st day in captivity in Mexico, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi will finally get his day in court Wednesday before a federal judge in Tijuana. Because of delays prompted by both Mexico´s unpredictable legal system and Tahmooressi´s trouble settling on a lawyer, the hearing will be the first time a judge gets to hear directly from the 26-year-old veteran of two tours in Afghanistan. Although his new lawyer is urging caution, Tahmooressi´s mother said the family hopes federal Judge Victor Octavio Luna Escobedo will free him. "Andrew expressed his hope to be released on Wednesday as the judge will

Harry Reid Apparently Thinks

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is so angry over the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in the Hobby Lobby contraception case last week that he apparently forgot Justice Clarence Thomas is black. The Nevada Democrat lamented the court’s ruling which allows Hobby Lobby and other for-profit companies with religious objections to certain forms of contraception to avoid providing them to employees in health insurance plans mandated under Obamacare. Hobby Lobby approves of 16 out of 20 forms of contraception that have been approved by the FDA. “People are going to have to walk down here and vote, and if they vote with the five

Washington--When President Obama placed a call to Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany last Thursday, he had a busy agenda: to consult with a close ally and to mobilize wavering Europeans to put more pressure on Russia to end its covert incursions in Ukraine.What Mr. Obama did not know was that a day earlier, a young German intelligence operative had been arrested and had admitted that he had been passing secrets to the Central Intelligence Agency.While Ms. Merkel chose not to raise the issue during the call, the fact that the president was kept in the dark about the blown spying

Hillary Clinton is past her time

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.

Serious sources are predicting that Russian president Vladimir Putin will send his forces into Ukraine — possibly under the guise of peacekeeping forces, as he did in Georgia in 2008. The chief of Ukraine’s national-security council has stated that the risk of Russian incursions is very high. And a Moscow source of mine with links to the Russian foreign ministry — who has previously provided accurate information — has said that Putin is considering sending in his forces within the next few days. A member of the German Bundestag, Marieluise Beck, has said that senior Russian diplomats have warned Berlin that Moscow’s

Chart and economic fact of the day:

The chart above displays the changes in payroll employment since December 2007 (the start of the Great Recession and when employment levels nationally and in most states peaked) through May of this year in the states of Texas and California. Here are some observations: 1. By May of 2011, Texas had regained all of the jobs lost during the Great Recession. In contrast, it took California three years longer, until April of this year, to regain the state jobs lost due to the effects of the recession. Since the Lone Star State regained all of the lost recession-related payroll jobs

Chicago Democrats a protected

Prominent Chicago Democrats have had an easy time with the national media for decades — as easy as shaking a ring of keys to distract an anxious child in church. Former Mayor Richard M. Daley rode a bicycle in photo ops and put a few plants on the roof of City Hall, leading the national news networks to cast him as the "green" mayor, not as the absolute boss of a broken and corrupt political system that piled debt on the city and drained its future for the benefit of the insiders. President Barack Obama appeared on the late-night talk shows as

Power grab: EPA wants to

The Environmental Protection Agency has quietly floated a rule claiming authority to bypass the courts and unilaterally garnish paychecks of those accused of violating its rules, a power currently used by agencies such as the Internal Revenue Service. The EPA has been flexing its regulatory muscle under President Obama, collecting more fines each year and hitting individuals with costly penalties for violating environmental rules, including recently slapping a $75,000 fine on Wyoming homeowner Andy Johnson for building a pond on his rural property. “The EPA has a history of overreaching its authority. It seems like once again the EPA is trying to

Elvis Presley was first heard on radio 60 years ago on July 8, 1954. Presley sold over one billion record units worldwide — making him the best-selling solo artist in record industry history. Known for his moves that earned him the nickname “Elvis the Pelvis” and that were considered scandalous at the time (but are tame by today’s standards), Presley was the undisputed king of “rock ’n’ roll” even though he never learned to read music and was told repeatedly in his youth that he couldn’t sing and would “never make it as a singer.” He made it in his

There’s hand-wringing and finger-pointing at Simon & Schuster over the soft performance of Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Choices,” for which she got a $14 million advance, sources said — and which was replaced at No. 1 on the best-seller list this week by an “exposé” about Hillary and Bill Clinton. The former secretary of state’s tome sold 161,000 copies in its first three weeks, according to Nielsen BookScan — but 85,000 of those were sold in the first week. That number has dropped sharply to 48,000 and 28,000 in subsequent weeks, with most recent numbers due out Wednesday. Simon & Schuster

Lee Smith, writing for Tablet: Events are moving so quickly in the Middle East that it seems like whatever you are reading is already outdated. Yesterday, after Hamas fireddozens of rockets into Israel over the weekend, Israeli Air Force planes targeted the Gaza-based group and killed at least seven members. Hamas’ actions follow the murder of a 16-year-old Arab Israeli, who was killed by soccer thugs in an alleged act of retribution for the abduction and murder of three Jewish Israeli teenagers, whose bodies were found last Monday. Netanyahu has repeatedly warned Hamas to cease its attacks. Hamasresponded on Monday that

Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to "stem the tide" of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States. "We have six minors in Nogales

The Boehner Lawsuit Against
Obama Is Beginning to Take Shape

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

I would like to think that the horrific killings of Israeli and Palestinian children in recent days -- and the ongoing escalation between Israel and Hamas over Gaza -- will force a moment of truth, more rational thinking and real options to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But I know better. There is still not enough pain and prospects of gain to warrant that. Meanwhile, back on planet Earth, Israelis and Palestinians have entered another yet violent cycle of reaction and counterreaction. Here are five essential elements to keep in mind as we watch another sequel in this tragic and long-running

There’s no shortage of criticism on Capitol Hill over how President Obama has handled the escalating humanitarian crisis at the border, but don’t look for Congress to simply rubber stamp his $3.7 billion emergency spending request. The concerns are not only coming from Republicans. Democrats have as many questions of their own over the White House proposal. “It’s something we have to do. It’s something we have to do,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters today. “How we get there, I really don’t know at this stage.” Details of Obama’s Border Funding Request Surge of Children Crossing Border Alone

Government Made 100B
in Improper Payments

WASHINGTON -- By its own estimate, the government made about $100 billion in payments last year to people who may not have been entitled to receive them - tax credits to families that didn´t qualify, unemployment benefits to people who had jobs and medical payments for treatments that might not have been necessary. Congressional investigators say the figure could be even higher. The Obama administration has reduced the amount of improper payments since they peaked in 2010. Still, estimates from federal agencies show that some are wasting big money at a time when Congress is squeezing agency budgets and looking to save

On Tuesday’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer offered his assessment of the layout of the current media environment, particularly with regards to liberal bias. Krauthammer was particularly critical of The New York Times. In its news pages, he argued the Times offered the news through a leftward prism. However, it declared its celebrated editorial page inconsequential for its slant. “[T]he editorials are so bad, so slanted, so childish -- they have no influence. What influences everybody is the choices that the editors make what to put on the front page because that declares

Operation Protective Edge is underway, and it’s turning into a full-scale ground operation. No thinking person can blame Israel’s leaders for taking steps to protect their citizens from the tens of thousands of unprovoked rocket attacks that have been launched in their direction by Hamas from Gaza. Now, rewind to 2012 and Operation Pillar of Defense. The central characters are the same, and the critical events are the same. Now, rewind to 2008 and Operation Cast Lead. The critical events are the same, but the central characters are different.

As the July 7 protest in Murrieta regarding immigration, and the potential of more busloads of diseased people being shipped to the Border Patrol Station for processing on Madison Avenue loomed, so did the potential of the federal government forcing its will upon the City of Murrieta with riot personnel.The rumor made its way to Breitbart.com, and fears of a blood-bath emerged throughout the community, and throughout the country. I discounted the rumor as merely a remote possibility, and a rumor that may have been leaked by the federal government by design.

Immigration: During his re-election campaign, President Obama said emphatically that the southwestern border was secure. Now he wants billions to cope with the flood of illegals crossing that very border. According to various news accounts, the number of illegals coming across the border has surged to 35,000 month. In just the past few months, more than 50,000 unaccompanied children crossed over, creating a huge humanitarian crisis. How can this possibly be happening? After all, didn´t Obama tell us when he ran for re-election that the border with Mexico was secure? As a matter of fact, he did. Many times. In a
