NASA Goes Global: Astronauts Out, Indonesia In


Do you remember that dream you had about growing up to be an astronaut one day? Well, you might want to rethink that. I don’t see that happening anytime soon, because NASA has better things to do. 
Back in February, it was reported that Obama had cut the space program, which may result in the loss [...]

The Blago Trial: Corruption and Crime for Primetime


Grab your popcorn and take a chair. No, it’s not an old episode of The Sopranos; it’s the all new Rod Blagovich Show.
First, you’ve got a superstar cast with all the usual names involved, like Barack Obama, Rahm Emmanuel, Andy Stern, Valerie Jarrett, Jesse Jackson Jr., and even  Oprah Winfrey , Bill Gates and Warren [...]

Sowell: Tyranny or the Rule of Law?


This past week, Thomas Sowell’s column asked if we are on a slippery slope to tyranny. With Washington’s current trend, what other conclusion can we come to?  Ignoring and circumventing the rule of law is the root cause of most of our problems now, and Sowell knows it.
Giving the most recent example of Obama’s demands [...]

The Reverend Wright’s Church is Still Relevant (and so is Bill Ayers)


It’s been awhile since you have seen much in the media about Obama’s connections to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers and Trinity United Church of Christ. As many people are bewildered by the direction Obama continues to take us, I think it remains relevant to watch what his old Chicago church is up to. Despite [...]

American Lives Sacrificed for an Immigration Agenda


How would you feel if your son was gunned down by an illegal alien who had just been released from jail (not deported, but released)? How would you feel if your “sanctuary city” community not only did nothing to stop it from happening again, but took it one step further by voting to boycott Arizona, [...]

FTC Reinventing Journalism: Today’s Watchdogs May Be Tomorrow’s Lap Dogs


As we have come to expect, the new FTC “discussion draft” on reinventing journalism was quietly released this week, virtually lost among the big stories of flotillas and oil leaks. Some of the ideas contained include using AmeriCorps as a cheap, young journalistic alternative and grant making to university journalism students to do actual reporting. [...]

US Charitable Organizations Support Violent Flotillas


The Sweetness & Light blog has an excellent piece entitled “US Taxpayers Support The ‘Gaza Flotilla.’” They illustrate how the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is funding the flotilla by funneling donations through the socialist A.J. Muste Memorial Institute, an American 501c3 charitable tax exempt foundation. This is just another example of how too many charities [...]

Gates’ Billion Dollar Leftism, Part Four: Funding High Interest Microloans


One of the Gates Foundation’s big recipients of grant money at almost $10 million in 2009, is the Grameen Foundation, one of the first to promote the worldwide microloan industry. Although winning its’ founder, Muhammed Yunus, a Nobel Prize in 2006, many question the motivation and actual results coming from the microloan industry.
Among those who [...]

Gates’ Billion Dollar Leftism, Part Three: Tax Shelter or Philanthropy?


On Rush Limbaugh’s show of May 28th, he spent a great deal of time talking about how the progressive elite use foundations. He was responding to Hillary Clinton’s call for the wealthy to pay more in taxes and be more like Brazil (apparently, our new role model.) Rush suggested that Hillary did not have to [...]

Arizona is a Test of States’ Rights


The maligned immigration law in Arizona could be much more important to every other state than we might realize.
Not only has President Barack Obama and many in his administration verbally attacked the legislation (in most cases, without reading it), but they are endorsing, by a lack of response, the overwhelming attack from the Left on [...]
