'Boycott Best Buy' Movement Takes Off

A former Marine who served in Beirut in 1982-1983 and Iraq in 2003 looks into the camera and declares, "On behalf of myself and my family, we will no longer conduct business at Best Buy." He cuts his card in half. The Marine joined over 8,000 others who have signed a petition to boycott Best Buy over the company’s financial support for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

What I Told Students at Harvard about Capitalism

As a lifelong capitalist, entrepreneur, and Reagan Libertarian, I was recently asked to deliver a lecture about the virtues of capitalism, entrepreneurship and fiscal conservatism at Harvard University. The lesson is that if capitalism and entrepreneurship are presented with enthusiasm, passion, energy, and honest personal stories, they will be accepted and celebrated everywhere in the world - even the intellectual, liberal halls of Harvard. The key is to counter the message delivered by President Obama, who spoke recently at a university in Florida and described capitalism as “a broken down theory," blaming it for our current economic problems.

The Obama-Clooney Campaign Finance Ploy

President Obama’s upcoming fundraising event with George Clooney is shaping up to be one for the record books. On May 10, the 150 guests who are slated to show up at Clooney’s home are expected to drop $6 million into the president’s campaign war chest, all to try and keep the keys to the White House in Obama’s hands for another four years. In an effort to really ramp up the cash flow, though, the Obama campaign has come up with a gimmick crafted to squeeze some money out of lower income folks and perhaps even unemployed ninety-nine percenters.

Will Biden Be Obama's Veep Pick a Second Time?

While speculation is already running rampant about the VP nominee that will join Mitt Romney on the GOP ticket, there is an increasing buzz just below the surface about whether Obama will also be making a Veep pick as he tries to keep the White House for a second term. Vice President Joe Biden is apparently not being included in the top level campaign strategy sessions. If he and Secretary Hillary Clinton were to switch things up, with Hillary on the ticket and Biden moving to State, then Biden would be on the outside looking in when it comes to the Obama reelection campaign structure... so there is no need to include him in the strategy development, right?

France Votes for Socialist, Engages Obama-topian Fantasy

France made the decision to remove more conservative leaning incumbent President Nicholas Sarkozy and replace him with the Socialist Francois Hollande. With the vote, which went 52%-48% in favor of Hollande, France has decided to vote for someone who wishes to tax income over one million euros at a 75% rate. On the eve of the election, the Financial Times posted an article that shows what every non-Socialist in the world has been saying: if we can’t make a living, we won’t stay. [more...]

Human Rights Gone Amuck under the Obama Administration
By Sarah N. Stern, Founder and President of the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET)

It was fortunate for the blind Chinese dissident, Chen Gaungcheng, that there was a great deal of media exposure and publicity surrounding his ordeal. The drama of having a blind person escape the Chinese authorities when the Secretary of State was due to have arrived in China was not to be missed. He and his family might have just been given a "Hail Mary Pass," thanks to his opportunity to study in the United States. But the thousands of anonymous Syrians slaughtered at the hands of Bashir Assad were not so lucky. Bashir Assad is the only Iranian ally in the Sunni Arab world. So the true winner in all of this is the Islamic Republic of Iran. [more...]
