The United Nations' Year-End Message to Israel

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon devoted part of his year-end press conference on December 19th to bashing Israel for its announcement of plans to build new housing in and around Jerusalem. He claimed that the Israeli announcement was a "near fatal blow to a very fragile Middle East peace process."

"I am deeply concerned by heightened settlement activity in the West Bank, in particular around Jerusalem," the Secretary General complained. "This gravely threatens efforts to establish a viable Palestinian state." [more...]

Assad: 'If I Go, None of Syria Remains'

Syrian dictator Bashar Assad has privately pledged to "fight to his last bullet" in his ancestral hometown of Qardaha, vowing, "If I go, none of Syria remains." The daily pools of blood spilled by his madmen cause hearts to be warmed by signs of Assad's impending fall, but one Syrian Christian opposition activist is loudly warning that light is not waiting at the end of the tunnel. Islamist hordes are. [more...]

R.I. District Gives Teachers Annual 11.2% Raise, with No Demand for Improved Performance

It pays to work for the government. Just ask the teachers in the Westerly, Rhode Island school district. The school committee just agreed to a new union collective bargaining agreement that doubles teachers’ pay in nine years. Perhaps all the news we’ve been hearing about public schools lacking funds has been exaggerated. The pay raises will come through adjustments to the annual teacher “step salary” schedule. There will now be nine steps up the salary ladder instead of 11, and each step will pay teachers more money than in the past... a lot more, in fact. [more...]

Professor Blames Mass Shootings on ‘White Male Privilege’

Some opinions only get attention because they come from people with advanced degrees who make their living on the taxpayer dime. That’s certainly the case for Hugo Schwyzer, a history and gender studies professor at Pasadena City College. He has a history of blaming white men for most of the mass killings that take place in the United States. Friday’s tragic shootings in Newtown, Connecticut gave him a great opportunity to spout his nonsense once again. Less than 40 minutes after the events - while (woefully inaccurate) news was still breaking - he tweeted, “MEN committing acts of Mass Violence is an epidemic that the U.S. needs to immediately address.” [more...]

Steve Gill Show Surpasses Goals for Christmas Fundraising

Tennessee-based, nationally syndicated talk radio show host Steve Gill and his listeners set out to raise $5,000 for Helping Hands Ministry ( and another $15,000 for the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home ( during the holiday season. Helping Hands Ministry feeds the hungry in Warren and DeKalb Counties in Tennessee and TBCH is home to approximately 150 orphan and foster children across Tennessee. Thanks to the generosity of listeners and the Gill Show team over $36,000 was raised over the last month for the two charities - with 100% of the money raised going directly for Christmas gifts and meals for those benefitting from the organizations.

The Left’s Renewed Assault on the NRA

While much of the country mourns the horrific death of the 26 children and adults murdered at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut at the hands of an alleged mentally unstable individual who also killed his mother, the Left lost no time in shamelessly exploiting the tragedy. In fact, Democratic Congressman Jerrold Nadler (NY) used the word “exploit” in urging President Obama to take advantage of the Newtown massacre to prod Congress into passing stronger gun control legislation.

Big Labor Bosses Demonstrate Why RTW is Necessary

Shame on Big Labor Bosses! For years they have used the tactic of “shame” in an effort to pressure, bully and demonize employers who might stand against their efforts. They have used “shame” in their efforts to misinform the public - to create a misperception that their target is guilty of an unconscionable act and should bear the scarlet letter of these acts. These attacks have been not just against the targeted employer, but against anyone who might oppose them, including the employer’s customers and advertisers, non-union employees, even their own membership if it suits their purposes. Recently, Big Labor has taken the weapon of “shame” to the political arena, both in Wisconsin, Indiana and now in Michigan. [more...]

Uncle Sam is Ordering Americans to Submit to Islam

The Wall Street Journal reports this week about a new draft handbook for U.S. troops in Afghanistan designed to prevent their Afghan "partners" from murdering them. The problem, according to the Army, is "ignorance of, or lack of empathy for Muslim and/or Afghan cultural norms" on the part of U.S. troops. The solution, according to the Army, is for troops to accept these same Muslim and/or Afghan norms - or else be killed. In effect, then, Uncle Sam is ordering Americans to submit to Islam or die - exactly the choice offered to infidels vanquished by jihad. As far I can tell, the main difference is Uncle Sam will require them to salute while submitting. [more...]

Syrian Jihadists Get Obama’s Blessing

President Obama chose an exclusive interview with ABC News’s Barbara Walters to announce his decision that the United States now formally recognizes the recently formed umbrella coalition of Syrian rebels who are fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad. The coalition is known formally as the National Coalition of Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces. In yet another example of leading from behind, Obama’s decision follows recognition of the rebel coalition by France, Britain, Turkey, the European Union and the Gulf Cooperation Council. [more...]

New Signs Assad Preparing to Use Chemical Weapons

The Syrian regime’s insertion of sarin gas into aerial bombs prompted the U.S. to warn Bashar Assad of “consequences” if he uses his huge chemical weapons arsenal. Now, Assad is setting the stage to blame any attack on the rebels, reportedly even printing pamphlets accusing “terrorists” of using the weapons. And he doesn’t have much time: A senior U.S. official says the weaponized sarin gas expires in 60 days. The countdown has begun. [more...]

Palm Beach County Schools Spent Millions on Travel, Pizza, Cell Phones, Water Parks...

A lot of well-meaning people from the education world have been running around the nation in recent years, telling everyone that public schools need a lot more money. They should be forced to read a list of expenditures from the Palm Beach County school district and then explain again how schools need more operating revenue. We think they might be a bit tongue-tied. EAGnews recently completed an inspection of credit card statements and the check register for the Palm Beach County school district in fiscal year 2010-11. The exercise uncovered enough questionable spending to make an average millionaire blush. [more...]

Syrian Rebels: We Are All Jabhat Al Nusra (Al Qaeda)

You can almost hear the Obama administration call out, as one voice, "Aha! We'll designate the Syrian al Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al Nusra a terrorist organization, thus barring the group from receiving Western money and arms, and be done with it!" And so they did. But they weren't. This is no "complication." It simplifies everything. Islam - jihad - is the tie that binds and not even a designation in the U.S. Federal Register is going to change that. So the U.S. on the jihad again, maybe this time with a little with more fanfare from the jihadists, once again backing forces that spread Islamic law - backing forces that actually killed and maimed Americans in Iraq, too, as in the case of Libya. Did it all start in the Balkans when Uncle Sucker empowered Muslims in Bosnia and Kosovo over Christians in Serbia? What about when we put in place sharia-supreme constitutions in Iraq and Afghanistan? And how about the endless match of jihad chess in Israel as the U.S. increasingly supports both sides, which is to say the jihad against Israel? [more...]

Romney and GOP Steamrolled by Big Labor Corporate Campaign

The Romney camp was steamrolled by Big Labor's Election Intimidation Factor, namely, a Corporate Campaign! The bottom line is that big labor and its far left activist buddies utilized the persuasion of power to manipulate the electorate with its ground game and foot soldiers in order to provide Obama the slim margin needed to be re-elected.

Survey: 70 Percent of Egyptian Voters Favor Draft Sharia Constitution

70 percent of Egyptians favor the new sharia draft constitution - true or false? Only the ballot box knows for sure. So why are Egypt's "liberals" and "secularists" rioting to prevent a national referendum? From the Vancouver Sun: Egypt's vice-president Mahmoud Mekki floated the possibility late Friday that the Islamist government might postpone a referendum on a hugely controversial draft constitution that critics have condemned because they believe it gives some powers to unelected Islamic scholars and ignores the rights of women and the country's Coptic Christian minority. Tens of thousands of protesters continued to mass in the dark outside the presidential palace early Saturday. At one point some of them broke through a hastily erected outer concrete barrier and clambered on tanks.  [more...]

It's Time for the GOP to Sacrifice the Billionaires

I’m a small businessman who believes we are all over-taxed. I would not raise anyone’s taxes. But since Obama’s pet billionaires like Warren Buffett are so quick to sell out the upper middle class... two can play at that game! Obama has the GOP Congress between a rock and a hard place. Here's a compromise that turns the tables on Obama.
I say it’s time to sacrifice the billionaires to save small business... and the GOP. [more...]

American Sheep Back at the Feeding Trough

In 1993 America was in the midst of a recession brought on by a progressive entitlement mentality, which was preceded by unprecedented growth of the U.S. economy during the Reagan years. While not a common term in the early '90s, but openly used today, the term "social justice" has proved to be nothing more than another code for the entitlement mentality... We now have a President who is more radical than Clinton and wouldn’t have a clue how to manage a lemonade stand, much less the United States of America. He is a “social justice” apostle. With support from his “big labor” buddies and other far left radicals, such as George Soros, the President continues to push forward his endeavor to destroy the free market system and replace it with socialism.

Forget the 'Fiscal Cliff'... Obama's Bigger Goal is Far Worse

Everybody’s worried about the fiscal cliff, but no one is paying attention to much bigger problems. Sure, the fiscal cliff may bear some importance, especially if the Republicans handled it right. But it really is a phony problem that was made up by politicians to spread fear and allow them to intimidate the American people so they can be manipulated into supporting things that will do more damage to the economy and America’s future. Yet with all that, Obama’s bigger goal is far worse for America’s future. The fiscal cliff is not about doing what’s best for America; it’s about power and control. But on a much bigger scale, Obama’s only economic goal is to destroy the American economic system so he can replace it with something far worse. [more...]

Netanyahu Standing Firm

On the day after the United Nations General Assembly passed the resolution recognizing Palestine as an observer state, including East Jerusalem and borders based on the pre-1967 lines, Israel announced plans to build additional housing in and around Jerusalem and in the West Bank. The Obama administration responded quickly with a series of condemnations. Several European countries, including France, Britain, Spain, Sweden and Denmark, summoned the Israeli ambassadors to their countries to protest Israel’s decisions. Blind to the implications of the General Assembly’s full-throated endorsement of the Palestinian Authority’s maximalist position on all major issues that were supposed to be negotiated bilaterally under the terms of the Oslo Accords, the international community rose up in anger against Israel for supposedly jeopardizing the prospects of a negotiated two-state solution.

The "Duranty" Times Strikes Again or How NYT Readers Retain That Rosy Glow

Walter Duranty was an evil, venal fabulist who won a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of Soviet Russia - only he "forgot" to cover the 1932-1933 Terror Famine in the Ukraine, where Stalin purposefully starved some five or six million people to death. Attempts to dislodge this besmirched award from the Times' grasp in the name of human decency have proved fruitless.

The New Democracy in Egypt: Minority Rule

Almost twenty months ago, the world celebrated with the Egyptian people the removal of a longtime dictator: Mubarak, as a victory for the new Arab Spring democracy. Almost a year later, things turned sour and the new hope for democracy turned into despair as a result of the apparent control of the Muslim Brotherhoods and Salafis on the direction of the election to choose the new president. By June of this year, it was very clear that the Muslim Brotherhoods are in control of power as the newly elected president of Egypt, Muhammad Morsi, emerged from the ranks of this Islamic group known for its hardliner religious approach, affinity for sharia law, and support for terrorism.

Have you ever heard a song on the radio, or maybe just playing overhead in a retail store, that sticks in your head and repeats over and over and over and over again?

Researchers say that most of the songs that stick have an upbeat melody, we have heard them to the point of familiarity, and there is a surprise in them - maybe an extra beat or something else that is just slightly “off.” And in most cases they are songs we may actually like... or at least not hate. As we market products and ourselves in an increasingly "noisy" marketplace we want our message to stick, too. Taking some lessons from “earworms” here are a few ideas... [more...]

Hollywood Stays in Campaign Mode

Samuel Goldwyn had the following famed advice for filmmakers: “Pictures are for entertainment. Messages should be delivered by Western Union.” Today’s Hollywood is apparently choosing to ignore the renowned studio mogul’s words and are instead opting to keep the election campaign going, just as the celebrity-in-chief continues to do.

The truth is that for decades, liberals in Hollywood have been shoehorning distinctively radical messaging into various forms of entertainment product. Left-wing messages were embedded in a blacklist subplot of the movie “The Way We Were” (1973), which featured Barbra Streisand as the local communist.

Streisand, who has now been paired with actor Seth Rogen in the upcoming comedy “The Guilt Trip,” recently opined in an Internet column that Sen. John McCain was “fueling the flames of a supposed cover-up by the White House, Secretary of State and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice.” Streisand stated that “there is no evidence to support that a cover-up occurred” and further suggested that “all Senator McCain wants to talk about is Benghazi and he is relentless in his questioning of ‘what the President knew and when did he know it.’” [more...]

Secession Talk Underscores Fundamental Differences in Red and Blue States

The talk of "secession" in the wake of the 2012 elections, which has produced signatures from citizens in virtually every state with nearly a million nationwide (and over 100,000 from Texas alone), has fueled flashbacks to the 1860s.

The Israeli-Hamas Cease Fire: Winners & Losers

Since last week the world has been celebrating a brokered cease fire deal between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The cease fire was the result of what appeared to be an imminent ground assault by the Israeli troops against the militant Islamic group Hamas. The fighting which began few weeks earlier was the result of the constant missile firing by the militant group from the Gaza Strip against Israel. For years Hamas has been firing thousands if missiles onto Israel in an effort to instigate a fight. Supported by Iran, Hamas' missile arsenal included long range missiles capable of reaching prominent cities including Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Such a non-stop assault was the reason for the Israeli retaliation against the terrorist group. However, one must ask: who are the winners and losers out of this deal? [more...]

What Americans are paying for in Egypt

The U.S. government is about to add $450 million to its $16 trillion debt for the sake of Muslim Brotherhood-run Egypt.

The original plan was to provide $190 million as soon as possible, but the declining economic conditions of Egypt convinced the Obama Administration to more than double that amount. Another $260 million will be delivered once Egypt secures a $4.8 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund. [more...]

Re-Arming Gaza’s Terrorists

President Obama pushed Israel into accepting a ceasefire arrangement with Hamas, which was engineered by Hamas’s Muslim Brotherhood patron, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi. Under the terms of the ceasefire, Israel is supposed to negotiate, through Egyptian intermediaries, an easing of border restrictions between Gaza and Israel. This would be the same Egyptian government that had sent its prime minister to Gaza to express solidarity with Hamas during the fighting. Hamas, on the other hand, is not required to give up its remaining stockpile of Iranian-supplied weapons, nor to commit to cease all further imports of Iranian missiles or missile parts. In short, the ceasefire is a sham. Only a Gaza Strip without re-armed terrorists can truly stop the fire in the long run. [more...]

Rove's Role in the Re-election of Obama

Let's all read Cliff Kincaid's excellent Nov. 8 analysis of the election in which he highlights Karl Rove's leading role in shaping the Romney campaign strategy not to define Barack Obama as the radical that he is: the Communist-mentored, Frantz Fanon inspired, faculty-lounge-Marxist who began his political career as a "fusion" candidate, running on both the socialist New Party and Democrat ticket. As Rove saw it, the GOP couldn't say anything bad about Obama or it would turn voters off. Romney, alas, apparently agreed. Kincaid cites exclusive Bloomberg Businessweek coverage of a closed event at the tail end of the GOP convention in Tampa where Rove addressed 70 top GOP donors. There, he laid out his strategy to win over crucial swing voters to defeat Barack Obama: as the reporter put it, "to criticize Barack Obama without really criticizing him." [more...]

Morsi Becomes Egypt's 'New Pharaoh'

On November 21, Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi was praised for his role in brokering a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel. He had positioned himself as the moderate peacemaker worthy of the $1 billion per year the U.S. had given his predecessor. The very next day he cashed in his good will with an enormous power grab that made him, in the words of one prominent Egyptian, the “new Pharoah.” [more...]

By refusing to participate in the traditional Thanksgiving event. That’s right, as a way to protest their lack of a contract, the teachers bailed on the students and senior citizens. But the students and a group of volunteers kept the tradition alive on their own. [more...]

These tenacious tactics all come at the expense of the very members they claim to represent! In their quest for survival, the Big Labor Turkeys are willing to destroy American exceptionalism and execute the most devastating and effective portion of their so-called corporate campaigns against American businesses. Simply put, their actions are an attempt to reduce business revenues during this critical fiscal season. This effort to bring businesses to their knees and submit to forced unionism comes on one of the proudest days in American history. [more...]

New Media Technologies Challenge the Legal Definition of Privacy

Smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices are filled with individuals’ highly personal data including e-mails, photos, contact data, financial and medical information. It is the type of private material that was previously kept in one’s residence; such material was precisely the kind that was contemplated by the drafters of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

However, since technology appears to be outpacing legal reasoning, some courts have rejected the idea that during an arrest, the information contained within a smart phone would require a warrant prior to the search of its contents. The U.S. Supreme Court has not specifically addressed searches of cell phones following an arrest, but a number of courts, including the Federal Courts of the Fourth and Fifth Circuits, have relied upon an exception to the Fourth Amendment, which was created by the High Court and allows police officers to search objects in the possession or reach of an arrested person following an arrest.

McCain's Secret Benghazi Agenda

What is the real reason Senator John McCain is on the war path against UN Ambassador Susan Rice? Is it not odd for a senior U.S. Senator to target so personally a relatively minor administration official - especially from the other party?        It is true that McCain is certifiably unpredictable, with an out-of-control temper going back to his childhood, pre-dating his POW years. Just ask his mother, who has often publicly described how difficult and irascible John McCain was from his earliest days on. And, to be upfront and fair about it, I have known John casually since 1974. In the Libyan/Rice/Benghazi Affair, McCain indeed has an agenda. And here is what I think it is: [more...]

The Three Evil Pillars of the Palestinian Jihadist War Strategy

Israel is currently fighting a three-pronged war in its on-going struggle to protect its citizens from Palestinian terrorists - physical asymmetric warfare, cyberwar and lawfare. Together they constitute the three evil pillars of the Palestinian jihadist war strategy that are a severe threat to Israel’s security. The most obvious is the unremitting rocket assaults launched from Gaza by Hamas and its jihadist brethren. Before the current hostilities broke out, they had already fired hundreds of rockets against Israeli civilian population centers all during 2012, despite repeated warnings by Israel to stop and letters to the UN Security Council that were repeatedly ignored. Finally, Israel decided that enough was enough. It had to send an unequivocal, forceful message or the daily terror suffered by its citizens would only get worse. [more...]

Targeted Killings: Good for the U.S.; Good for Israel

There have been one million people, extending from Ashdod to Sderot who have been receiving a steady barrage of rocket attacks and have fifteen seconds to run for their lives. Israel has endured over 800 of these attacks from Gaza in the last year. Could you imagine how the United States would respond if San Diego were receiving this sort of an onslaught from Mexico, or Buffalo from Canada? According to article 51 of the United Nations Charter, every any nation has an inherent right to defend itself. Hamas, which is on the official State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations, was swept into power in free and open elections on January 26, 2006. It is the group that has been behind much of the suicide bombings which Israel has endured since 1996. [more...]

King on Petraeus

After Rep. Peter King's appearance before the press after David Petraeus appeared before the House Intelligence Committee on November 16, he is clearly struggling with what he has heard from Petraeus: a version of Petraeus' September 14 briefing at odds with what King and, more important, the record as set at the time by the ranking Democrat Dutch Ruppersberger, recall. In a nutshell, on September 14, Petraeus emphasized a "spontaneous," video-driven protest that became violent as "extreme" groups opportunistically attacked the U.S. compound (with RPGs and mortars). Petraeus spun this false narrative to the intell committee at a time when the U.S. government already knew no protest whatsoever had taken place in Benghazi; rather, that the ambassador and three other Americans had been killed in a planned assault by al-Qaeda linked groups on the anniversary of 9/11. Petraeus' testimony, in other words, was a lie and an outrage - but no one seems to care. Meanwhile, it is a crime to lie to Congress, oath or no oath. [more...]

"Idiocracy" in the Golden State

"Idiocracy" in the Golden State

After experiencing the results of the recent election, many of those who reside on the Left Coast woke up the following morning feeling as if they had been beamed into a movie sequel for a film that has yet to be made. Real life in the former Golden State has become too much like a follow-up flick to 2006’s sci-fi comedy "Idiocracy."

The movie never had a major theatrical release, but it has achieved a cult following due to its prophetic plotline. The humorous satire stars Luke Wilson and Maya Rudolph as two characters who, after participating in a classified military hibernation experiment, wake up 500 years in the future. During the movie’s introduction, the narrator informs the viewing audience that, since natural selection is indifferent toward intelligence, stupid people will, in the future, outnumber those with a modicum of intelligence. The characters in the film discover a society that is uniformly lacking in brainpower and any notion of individual responsibility as well. [more...]

Unions Demand Payback: Card Check is Back on the Table

The re-election of President Barak Obama will allow him to continue his Rule by Fiat and to push his socialistic agenda. This, in turn, will rejuvenate Big Labor’s most coveted objective, "Card Check." The President will continue his drive to circumvent Congress through the use of Executive Orders and regulatory actions, with a goal of destroying the free enterprise system and replacing it with a socialistic society. In fact, don’t be surprised by an attempt to use Rule by Fiat to eliminate presidential term limits and secret ballot political elections to effectively establish a totalitarian government.

Petraeus Betrayed His Country Before He Betrayed His Wife

Was David Petraeus as great a general as the write-ups of his downfall routinely claim? This is a provocative question that I will begin to answer with another question: Did America prevail in the Iraq War? I suspect few would say "yes" and believe it, which is no reflection on the valor and sacrifice of the American and allied troops who fought there. On the contrary, it was the vaunted strategy of the two-step Petraeus "surge" that was the blueprint of failure. While U.S. troops carried out Part One successfully by fighting to establish basic security, the "trust" and "political reconciliation" that such security was supposed to trigger within Iraqi society never materialized in Part Two. Meanwhile, the "Sunni awakening" lasted only as long as the U.S. payroll for Sunni fighters did. [more...]

Exclusive Video: Chicago Teachers Union Forgets the Veterans on Veterans Day

On Monday, November 12th (the observed Veterans Day), the Chicago Teachers Union organized a protest - not to honor vets, but to protest school closures. Ironically, all Chicago public schools were closed that day to honor military veterans who served our nation.
Judging by the resistance of union activists to answer simple questions on the video below, it’s unlikely EAGnews will be on the CTU’s Christmas - oops, we mean winter holiday - card list.
And let’s hope all the four-letter words used during the protest aren’t standard fare in Chicago classrooms each day - those days, of course, that they aren’t on strike or embracing some radical political agenda instead of American exceptionalism. [See the video here...]

What Went Wrong With My Prediction about Mitt Romney

I predicted Mitt Romney would win the 2012 election in a landslide. What went wrong? Was my prediction based on hope or bias? My prediction was based on a combination of scientific evidence and common sense. First, it was based on common sense that no president could possibly be re-elected with the worst economy of our lifetimes - with an economy that has produced more months above 8% unemployment (43 of them to be exact) than produced by all the presidents between Harry Truman and George W. Bush combined (39). People just don't vote for the guy that brings you misery, malaise, foreclosures and bankruptcies, record unemployment, and inflation at the gas pump and grocery store. This election should have been, 100 out of 100 times, a repeat of Reagan’s landslide over Carter. [more...]

Arrogance, Not Truth, Will Guide Obama as He Deals with Benghazi

Those who think that Obama will crumble under the pressure of the Benghazi investigation are dreaming. He has always been a man of arrogance and it will get nothing but worse the more he is pushed into a corner in the search for truth. People who are power hungry do not take well to being challenged - especially those who have lived privileged lives. And our president has certainly lived a privileged life, not the phony image put forth of him for PR purposes that makes people think his background is akin to being born in a log cabin he built himself, and raising his own food and cooking it over an open flame to feed his mother and his entire extended family (or any other tall tale they can come up wit

Petraeus of Benghazi

I have been studying/critiquing Petraeus for years. Go here for articles. Here is the latest: First, the WSJ; now the NYT: CIA Director David Petraeus is feeling a little heat from the spotlight regarding Benghazi. It's an extremely soft-focus spot, however, one that obscures the most important question regarding Petraeus' role in Obama administration mendacity in characterizing what was a planned terrorist attack as a violent melee growing from a "spontaneous" protest over a Youtube video. That most important question is, Why, three days after this terrorist attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, did Petraeus go before the House Intelligence Committee and brief lawmakers that a Youtube video was to blame for a "spontaneous" protest - wholly fictitious - that "went on," as ranking Democrat Dutch Ruppersberger told ABC on September 14 following the Petraeus briefing, "for two to three hours?" [more...]

Obama Campaign Mined Data from Cable Television Companies

Obama’s campaign staff ran a decisively negative campaign, creating an advantage early on for the president with a distortion of Gov. Mitt Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital and a characterization of his challenger as a vile individual whose only goal was to further enrich those who were already wealthy at the expense of hard working, middle class Americans. Lists of voter contacts and compilations of social media information already in the Obama campaign’s possession underwent a strengthening process through use of something known as political “data mining.” Data mining is routinely used by government and by industry in an effort to extract patterns embedded in large information sources. Cutting edge technology is employed, sometimes including the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning. [more...]

Obama’s America: Jailed for Blaspheming against Islam

Obama believes his re-election gives him a mandate to continue on his path to “fundamentally transform” America. He is well on his way to fundamentally transforming the First Amendment’s protection of freedom of speech to a more Sharia-friendly version. The transformation is playing out before our eyes in the persecution of the producer of the anti-Islam video blamed by Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other top administration officials for the Benghazi murders. The day after Obama’s re-election victory lap, the video producer, Mark Basseley Youssef, was sentenced by a federal district court judge to one year in prison for violating the terms of his probation. The Obama administration had gone after Youssef relentlessly, using probation violations as a convenient pretext to arrest and prosecute him. The real goal was to punish Youssef for blasphemy against Islam - a crime under Sharia law. [more...]

How to Fix the GOP Losing Streak

Comedian Groucho Marx said, “Those are my principles. If you don’t like them I have others.” That’s a funny line, but when people actually live like that, they are phonies and will lose sooner or later. That’s exactly what happened to the GOP in the election. The hypocrisy of the establishment GOP is laughable as they pretend to be conservative. But while the battle for control of the right goes on, the left ushers in the principles of another Marx besides Groucho and they handily win the election. Not because there wasn’t substance to the GOP positions, but because there weren’t enough people left in the GOP to represent them who were principled conservatives that could present a truly conservative option to voters.
