Of course, Obama related to first black slave on his, um, mother’s side

Posted by  ▪  July 31, 2012
CNN is hyping this story, but when you dig into it, there’s no firm evidence, only piecing together assumptions and conjecture. Obama’s family tree connection to first African American slave (emphasis mine): His family tree has been linked to Brad Pitt, Sarah Palin and both Presidents Bush but now President Barack Obama may be…

Milton Friedman v. Obama/Warren/Lakoff

Posted by  ▪  July 31, 2012
Today would be Milton Friedman’s 100th birthday. I’ve played this video before, but it’s particularly timely in light of the “you didn’t build that” narrative which has become the foundation of the Obama campaign taken from Elizabeth Warren who took it from George Lakoff.
 

Life imitates bumper sticker

Posted by  ▪  July 31, 2012
The right to be offended is the foundation of our democracy. And the blogosphere. Thanks to reader Amy, who writes: I’m vacationing in Washington state, but here in the agricultural area of the Yakima valley, people are more conservative than the liberal coast–and it shows. Love your blog! Especially the bumper stickers. Keep up…

The folks at Twitchy have the story: PJ Media’s Nina Yablok is trying to return the Twitter handle @Instapundit to the hands of trademark owner Glenn Reynolds, and she’s asking for help in getting Twitter’s attention.

Is there anything Elizabeth Warren can’t do?

Posted by  ▪  July 30, 2012
As reported by National Journal (via TWS)(emphasis mine): “Every now and again, I meet with someone who’s been very successful on Wall Street, who says, ‘I want to support your campaign because I believe you will save capitalism. I believe in capitalism, and I understand there have to be rules. And they have…

If Mitt Romney had talked about Palestinians the way Obama spoke about Pennsylvanians

Posted by  ▪  July 30, 2012
Mitt Romney is under furious attack from the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, and pro-Obama media for pointing out the truth about why culture matters in the economic success of Israel. How would these people have reacted if Romney gave this speech: You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania the Palestinian Territories, and, like a lot of small…

Harry Reid is a charmer

Posted by  ▪  July 30, 2012
And you wonder why nothing gets done in the Senate and Republicans can’t even get votes on legislation or a budget? Via The Hill: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has launched a blistering verbal assault against William Magwood, a Democratic member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission nominated by President Obama, c…

The anti-hate hate mob grows

Posted by  ▪  July 30, 2012
We’ve seen the Mayors of Boston and Chicago abuse their power to drive a lawful business out of their jurisdictions by threatening to withhold business permits because the founder and President support the definition of marriage as one man – one woman. When those threats generated an outcry even from many liberals, the same politicians,…

Mitt Romney “outrages” Palestinians by pointing out the obvious

Posted by  ▪  July 30, 2012
The cycle of perpetual outrage and victimhood continues. Mitt Romney pointed out something obvious, that Israel has a record of economic success unmatched by those under Palestinian Authority control, attributing it to cultural and other factors: “As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is…

And now we juxtapose

Posted by  ▪  July 30, 2012
From reader equitus: I saw this one in Napa County, CA on Thursday, May 31. Note the large faded sticker in the middle: “I [heart] Big Brother” It’s a little shocking anyone would admit this kind of sentiment, even in these parts. Keep up the great work!

Spawned?

Posted by  ▪  July 29, 2012
Is anyone getting “spawned” when visiting LI? A reader has complained that links produce multiple “spawned” pages. I’ve never had the problem, and our site is clean of viruses as far as we can determine. Is anyone else having this problem?
 

Mitt Romney in Israel

Posted by  ▪  July 29, 2012
Let me be as clear as I can be.  Anyone who supports Israel must vote for Romney.  Obama, in complete control of foreign and military policy, will be unrestrained by electoral considerations in a second term, and will impose his vision of a Middle East settlement on the Israelis.  There won’t be…

Most important legacy of Obama’s gay marriage switch was freeing Dems to play the “bigot card”

Posted by  ▪  July 29, 2012
I can’t say I’m surprised it came to threats from the Mayors of Boston and Chicago, and a Chicago Alderman, to deny Chick-fil-A a business permit because the owners support the traditional definition of marriage as one man – one woman.  Or that two other Mayors, in San Francisco and D.C., have jumped on…

Posted by  ▪  July 29, 2012
A recent poll indicates she is in trouble. Via The St. Louis Post-Dispatch: No matter who wins the Missouri Republican nomination to the U.S. Senate on Aug. 7, Democrat Claire McCaskill is running from behind. McCaskill, the first-term incumbent Democratic senator, trails all three of her likely Republican challengers, according to a new Post-Dispatch/News…
