Remembering D-Day – Preserving the Bulwark of Democracy and Honoring American Exceptionalism


Notably absent from major leftist news media, including the NewYork Times, is any reference to the 66th Anniversary of D-Day.
Last year, the Times gave President Obama a full-page spread entitled “Obama Hails D-Day Heroes at Normandy after he refused to visit Normandy last spring and risk offsetting the “balance” of the G20 Summit during his [...]

Katie Couric on Israel – Another Performance for the White House


HT Story Balloon
I didn’t know Katie was moonlighting for the White House as a foreign diplomat while at CBS. Or is she a cabinet-level ambassador? She can’t possibly be just another national broadcasting mouthpiece for the Obama Administration.
Maybe she’s looking for an internship.
Other than reading from a teleprompter, much like the President, what other [...]

Green Tech Still Hopeless for “The New Poor”


Only the New York Times can publish an article on jobs that aren’t coming back, call it “creative destruction” and say that it “benefit[s] the economy.”
You think I’m joking.
From Catherine Rampbell’s piece “In a Job Market Shift, Some Workers Are Left Behind“ in the New York Time’s “The New Poor” series:
This “creative destruction” in the job market [...]

Greenie Copycats Give Kudos to Republican Governors


They say imitation is the best form of flattery. If that’s so, then the greenies over at This is Ecocide give kudos to the Republican Governors Association and their work toward throwing the Left out of office in November.
This is Ecocide acts as a front group for Polly Higgins’ company in search of half-a-trillion dollars in venture capital and government subsidies to solarpower the Sahara.
What [...]

Obama Micro-Manages Federal Job Growth


the suffering federal job applicant

The Washington Post doesn’t realize it, but the hype over Obama’s efforts to streamline federal job hiring exemplifies two things. First, the type of bloated propaganda that accompanies every single step Obama takes, and second, how Obama’s focus on job growth always involves expanding the size of government.
In not one, but two articles, the WaPo, provides a freebie ”We’re Hiring!” [...]

The Press – Showing Up Before Barney Fife


“horrified” law enforcement
There comes a time when the press needs to draw the same line of respect as ordinary citizens and stay the hell out of the way during an investigation – especially one of national security significance.

NPR reports,via the Corner at NRO, that the realtime cat-and-mouse game between Shahzad, the Press and law enforcement “was [...]

Amid Latest NY Terrorist Attack, It’s Still Politics as Usual


Them.

Katie lied, and Bloomberg tried.
Doubly so.
Sunday evening, May 2nd, amid the massive hunt for the Times Square Car Bomber, CBS’s Katie Couric and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg exchanged pleasantries:
Couric:  Law enforcement officials don’t know who left the Nissan Pathfinder behind, but at this point, the mayor believes the suspect acted alone.
Bloomberg: If I had to guess [...]

The Stoning and Burning of Big Oil


Watching Big Oil Burn
In the spirit of ”keep[ing] the boot on the neck of British Petroleum (BP),” per Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, CBS News and Politico are reporting the new witch hunt of BP and its cohorts, Transocean and Halliburton.
The American public is about to witness a very public flogging, something reminiscent of a 17th century stoning of evil-doers by the mob before being dragged to a pyre [...]

It’s All About the Oil – Obama Chooses the Crisis of Greater National Significance


Waiting for the Right Wave to Ride

Though we’re not part of his inner circle or privy to his counsel, we can still determine President Obama’s political will based on the political waves he chooses to ride.
Last week, as he demonized Arizona legislators attempting to enforce federal immigration laws, America discovered that crude, not criminality, [...]
