When Democrats run out of ideas (a problem that happens often) they turn to their standard political tactic: Blame former President George W. Bush. Record deficits? Bush’s fault. Record unemployment? Bush’s fault. Failing banks? Bush did it. Failing war in Afghanistan? Bush put us in this mess. One of these days, the party of the […]
The Obama administration is working to expand the controversial Department of Homeland Security (DHS) beyond its traditional role of fighting terrorism, giving the enforcement agency broad powers over cybercrime, disease control, immigration enforcement and other areas of American life.
The proposed changes could turn DHS into a powerful national police agency with broad control — a move that some civil libertarians worry could become an “American Gestapo.”
White House officials outlined the proposed changes in a document called the “Quadrennial Homeland Security Review,” delivered to Congress recently but embargoed for public release.
Normally, you don’t see the term “sex symbol” and “Republican” in the same sentence.
Most people had a good laugh when the party of the elephant tried to pass off Sarah Palin as sexy.
The Wasilla wonder is many things: Sexy ain’t one of them.
But election of former nude Cosmo model Scott Brown as the new Senator from Massachusetts has given Republicans a hunk they can call their own and Saturday Night Live cemented Brown’s status as the new GOP sex symbol with a skit this past weekend that depicted Democrats having fantasies of Brown that had little to do with legislation and a lot to do with imagination.
As State of the Union speeches go, President Barack Obama’s overwrought, overlong and over-hyped seventy-one minute lecture Wednesday night was not very spectacular, not very stirring and not in touch with reality. Bill Clinton delivered much better State of the Union speeches. Clinton could speak for hours and keep people interested. Camers showed even Democrats […]
The U.S. Supreme Court Thursday drove the final nail into the coffin containing a dead American concept called democracy. In a 5-4 vote, the court lifted virtually all limits on corporate spending on election campaigns, opening the door to total and complete control of the electoral process by big business and labor unions. Gone are […]
Hell froze over in Massachusetts Tuesday. Voters sent a Republican to Washington to represent the most liberal state in the union in the United States Senate. Defeated Democrats immediately launched their typical game — blaming the loss of seat held for so long by Sen. Ted Kennedy on everyone and everything except themselves. Most of […]
When Republicans tried their hardest to use Bill Clinton’s inability to keep his pants zipped as a way to oust him from office, Democrats raised their hands in mock anger and decried that it as “just sex” and sex wasn’t all that important in the political scheme of things. Now Game Change, the book that […]
Horrific disasters like the earthquake that leveled the capital city of Haiti with a death toll that may top 100,000 brings out the best and worst of people. The best can be found in the millions of Americans who contacted relief agencies over the past two days and contributed their sparse and hard-earned dollars to […]
The latest closet racist to emerge in the United States Senate is Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Nevada casino bag-man who is already a marked candidate in the upcoming mid-term election. In a new book, Reid is quoted as saying Obama could become President because he is “light skinned” with “no Negro dialect, unless he […]
Barack Obama invoked the ghost of Harry Truman Thursday, telling the nation that the “buck stops with me” for the security failures that let a nutcase with an underwear bomb get on a plane on Christmas Day. But Obama is speaking, once again, out of both sides of his mouth. He continues to blame the […]
