Government Shutdown looms as Left stakes claim on Nanny State funding

Government Shutdown looms as Left stakes claim on Nanny State funding

Talks have stalled between congressional Democrats and Republicans trying to negotiate a federal budget for the remainder of the fiscal year, escalating the chances that the government could at least partially shut down next month. Lawmakers have only two weeks to come up with a deal before a sixth, short-term funding bill, or continuing resolution, expires on April 8, and so far both sides are doing little more than pointing […]

Media Ignores Calls For Socialist Revolution at ‘Anti-War’ Rally in Chicago

Media Ignores Calls For Socialist Revolution at ‘Anti-War’ Rally in Chicago

Chicago media reported on a recent march in Chicago as being an “Anti-War” march organized by students and “faith based groups” who “hope to spark change in our democracy.” What they left out was the clear fact that the march and rally had much less to do with the Iraq war than it did about a far-left socialist agenda. Citizen journalist “Rebel Pundit” provides the information the media chose not […]

The Liberal Motto: “Do as we say, not as we do.”

The Liberal Motto: “Do as we say, not as we do.”

Interesting Observation – Census shows Blacks fleeing blue states

Like me, Walter Russell Mead has been studying the 2010 Census figures with the aid of this excellent interactive graphic by the New York Times. He focuses in this terrific American Interest blogpost on the fact that the black population has been declining in what he calls “blue state America”—states and cities with high state government spending, generous welfare benefits. From 2000 to 2010 the black population declined 11% in the […]

Transparency? Biden advance team confines reporter at fundraiser

Its just words, “The most transparent Presidency in History” rings like when Nancy Pelosi  said she would run the “most ethical Congress in history”.. Just words.  President Obama has run in to the very thing his claimed he would not become,  just another leader who uses Rhetoric without action.  The whole “change” thing has become no change at all.  Now Biden, well, we all knew he would be a comedians […]

DOJ Sues School District for not approving new Teacher’s pilgrimage to Mecca

DOJ Sues School District for not approving new Teacher’s pilgrimage to Mecca

Certainly reasonable accommodations should be made for the faithful to participate in a Religious pilgrimage.  But when you are a young new hire to a job you mostly wait a bit before asking for several weeks off.  Muslims are asked that is at all possible and if one can afford it to make a Pilgrimage to Mecca in ones lifetime.  It seems to us that unless the young teacher was […]
