The Government Wants To Save Newspapers & Media Moguls - At the Expense of Blogs

By Jeff Jarvis
Buzz Machine

The Federal Trade Commission has been nosing around how to save journalism and in its just-posted “staff discussion draft” on “potential policy recommendations to support the reinvention of journalism,” it makes its bias clear:  The FTC defines journalism as what newspapers do and aligns itself with protecting the old power structure of media.

If the FTC truly wanted to reinvent journalism, the agency would instead align itself with journalism’s disruptors. But there’s none of that here. The clearest evidence: the word “blog” is used but once in 35 pages of text and then only parenthetically as an example of buying ads on topical sites (“e.g., a soccer blog…”); otherwise, it’s only a footnote. The only mention of investing in technology — the agent of disruption — comes on the 35th page (suggesting R&D for tools such as “improved electronic note-taking”). There’s not a hint of seeing a new ecosystem of news emerge – the ecosystem we study and support at CUNY — except as the entry of nonprofit entities that, by their existence, give up on the hope the market will sustain news.

Obama: The Marxist Behind the Elegant Mask

During the 2008 presidential election, my radar went into high gear when I learned that the National Journal had voted Barack Obama as the most liberal senator in 2007.  Could Obama's policy ideas really be as bad as Clinton's ideas?  I still suffered from bad memories of the "progressive" Clinton era.  I already knew a lot about Hillary Clinton, so I read everything I could find on Obama. 

I read and listened to the mainstream media, of course, but knowing their reputation for liberal bias, I knew I couldn't rely on them to give me the kind of forensic information I needed to judge the man they described as an "elegant" presidential candidate. 

What surprised me was how much information was available in books and on the internet.  (There are many more sources than those just linked.)  What angered me was the degree to which the mainstream media was willing to sugar coat, turn a blind eye to, or even hide Obama's tracks.  In fact, the media has regularly maligned people who question progressive policies and candidates, and especially those who question Obama's background.  Indeed, the media practices Alinsky tactics against all whose views differ from their liberal bias.

While there is still a great deal about Obama that the man deliberately hides from public view, it really wasn't difficult to ferret out enough information for me to decide that I wouldn't have voted for Obama if George Sorros had offered me a million bucks.  That would have been like selling my soul to the Devil. 

Barack Obama, the man with a beautiful smile and a cool, calm and collected demeanor, is unequivocally a Marxist who has trained at the feet of other communists.  All of this was known BEFORE the election, but the liberal media (whose sympathies we should always question) didn't want the right-of-center American public to know.  Thanks to the huge role played by the media, our country is now being destroyed from within the Oval Office. 

The following video describes information about Barack Obama that was readily available to those who took the time to look for it.  A pox on the house of the media!

On Memorial Weekend, Obama Declares June Gay Pride Month

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
May 28, 2010

Presidential Proclamation--Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month

As Americans, it is our birthright that all people are created equal and deserve the same rights, privileges, and opportunities.  Since our earliest days of independence, our Nation has striven to fulfill that promise.  An important chapter in our great, unfinished story is the movement for fairness and equality on behalf of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.  This month, as we recognize the immeasurable contributions of LGBT Americans, we renew our commitment to the struggle for equal rights for LGBT Americans and to ending prejudice and injustice wherever it exists.

 LGBT Americans have enriched and strengthened the fabric of our national life.  From business leaders and professors to athletes and first responders, LGBT individuals have achieved success and prominence in every discipline.  They are our mothers and fathers, our sons and daughters, and our friends and neighbors.  Across my Administration, openly LGBT employees are serving at every level.  Thanks to those who came before us    the brave men and women who marched, stood up to injustice, and brought change through acts of compassion or defiance    we have made enormous progress and continue to strive for a more perfect union.

 My Administration has advanced our journey by signing into law the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which strengthens Federal protections against crimes based on gender identity or sexual orientation.  We renewed the Ryan White CARE Act, which provides life saving medical services and support to Americans living with HIV/AIDS, and finally eliminated the HIV entry ban.  I also signed a Presidential Memorandum directing hospitals receiving Medicare and Medicaid funds to give LGBT patients the compassion and security they deserve in their time of need, including the ability to choose someone other than an immediate family member to visit them and make medical decisions.

 In other areas, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced a series of proposals to ensure core housing programs are open to everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.  HUD also announced the first ever national study of discrimination against members of the LGBT community in the rental and sale of housing.  Additionally, the Department of Health and Human Services has created a National Resource Center for LGBT Elders.

Much work remains to fulfill our Nation's promise of equal justice under law for LGBT Americans.  That is why we must give committed gay couples the same rights and responsibilities afforded to any married couple, and repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.  We must protect the rights of LGBT families by securing their adoption rights, ending employment discrimination against LGBT Americans, and ensuring Federal employees receive equal benefits.  We must create safer schools so all our children may learn in a supportive environment.  I am also committed to ending "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" so patriotic LGBT Americans can serve openly in our military, and I am working with the Congress and our military leadership to accomplish that goal.

 As we honor the LGBT Americans who have given so much to our Nation, let us remember that if one of us is unable to realize full equality, we all fall short of our founding principles.  Our Nation draws its strength from our diversity, with each of us contributing to the greater whole.  By affirming these rights and values, each American benefits from the further advancement of liberty and justice for all.
 NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2010 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.  I call upon all Americans to observe this month by fighting prejudice and discrimination in their own lives and everywhere it exists.
 IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-eighth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand ten, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-fourth.

Memorial Day History


We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies
--Moina Michael, In Flanders Fields

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service.  There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day.  There is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War:  a hymn published in 1867, "Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping" (Source:  Duke University's Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920).  While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial by President Lyndon Johnson in 1966, it's difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day.  It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860s tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen. Logan giving his official proclamation in 1868.  It is not important who was the very first, what is important is that Memorial Day was established.  Memorial Day is not about division.  It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to honor those gave their all.

Border law opponents want international fix in Arizona

[Ed.  If every congressman pledges to uphold the Constitution, then why are some Democrat Arizona senators running to the UN and Mexican lawmakers for aid and comfort against SB 1070?  Can't these legislators be impeached or recalled by the citizens of Arizona?  What country do they think they're living in anyway, Mexico?!]

By Bob Unruh

Lawmakers from Arizona who oppose their state's crackdown on illegal aliens are joining up with lawmakers from the Mexican state of Sonora to call on the Organization of the American States for a fix.
The Arizona statute, which essentially duplicates federal law to allow law enforcement officers to check the legal status of those they have reasonable suspicion may be in the United States illegally, has been targeted byMexican authorities.

Insider Patenting: How Fannie Mae Chief Got the Patent for Cap and Trade in 2006

by John Bambenek

Just one day after the Democrats seized control of Congress, the Chief Executive of Fannie Mae, Franklin Raines, received the patent for a residential cap-and-trade-system (Patent 6904336).  What this means is that Raines, along with several colleagues who also "own" the patent, could stand to make huge amounts of money if the cap-and-trade regime was ever brought to the residential marketplace.  What does this have to do with Fannie Mae?  Absolutely nothing.

To understand the implications, a little discussion about patenting is needed.  Patents are basically "ownership" rights to an invention.  If you invent something, you can license it to others to produce and collect royalties.  Each year, thousands of patents are sent to the US Patent Office for consideration.  Many "patent houses" simply put in very general patents so they can turn around and sue businesses later for "stealing" their inventions.  Sometimes it's legit, many times it's bogus.

War on Terror:  We've seen the enemy and it's not just the jihadists.  It's also our own government, which refuses to see this very real enemy.  How can we fight and defeat what we refuse to see?

First it was the Pentagon, which whitewashed jihad's obvious role in the Fort Hood massacre.  Then it was the attorney general, who during congressional testimony couldn't bring himself to say that "radical Islam" motivated the turncoat Muslim soldier who opened fire at the base.  Or the Muslim terrorist who tried to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner.  Or the Muslim terrorist who tried to blow up Times Square.

Clinton Cutout

Investors Business Daily

Alibis:  The White House's official explanation for Sestak-gate is one for the books.  We employed Bill Clinton as courier to present an offer of no value.  Since when does Special Delivery bring empty packages?

In espionage parlance, a "cutout" is an intermediary who takes information from one agent to another, possibly not even knowing the content or significance of what he carries.  If a cutout is captured or exposed, the others are protected.

White House counsel Robert Bauer has issued what the media insist on calling a "report" on the efforts to get Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., not to run in the Democratic primary against Sen. Arlen Specter, the liberal Republican who switched parties last year.

The Unprecedented Intensity of the YouCut Movement

By Eric Cantor

Two weeks ago, the House Republican Economic Recovery Working Group launched YouCut, an initiative that allows people to get involved in their government like never before.

Before we launched the project, I knew that the American people were fed up with the size of government and the culture of spending that has become the norm in Washington. What I didn’t fully anticipate, however, was the level of grassroots intensity that YouCut elicited. During the first week of the project, our website averaged more than 3,000 votes cast an hour and a total of 281,000 votes cast. Since that time, the intensity surrounding the project has not dissipated.

Currently, more than 500,000 votes have been cast and 30,000 people have emailed spending reduction ideas of their own.

Ari David Declares Victory Against Apple The Goliath

By Ari David
Candidate for Congress
California 30th District

In a surprise reversal, Apple computer has approved my iphone application and is allowing it to be distributed in the iphone app store.  Apple had originally declared portions of the application, which are critical of my opponent, Congressman Henry Waxman, to be defamatory of Waxman and thus, containing inappropriate content.

I always asserted that the material in the app was perfectly appropriate because it was critical of Waxman‘s policy positions and actions he has taken as an elected official.  The material critical of Waxman was also important to include in the iphone application in order to illustrate the policy differences between Waxman and myself.

If Apple had continued to reject such material they would have severely compromised my right to free political speech because if political discourse is too controversial to discuss in public online spaces like the app store, where else will such discourse be banned?

It’s nice that Apple decided to do the right thing is this case and I look forward to having everyone download the application which is available for free on itunes.

I hope you enjoy it and share it with everyone you know.

The Will to Drill

Filmmaker, Stephen Baldwin, went to New Orleans on May 14, 2010, intending to create a feature film based on a screenplay he had written.  However, with the collapse of the oil rig, and conversations with locals expressing their concerns, Baldwin changed his plans.  His film crew is now working on a documentary to be titled "The Will To Drill", which he describes as "a partisan exploration of the events that transpired after the explosion of the off shore oil rig Deepwater Horizon and all that has transpired since."

Interestingly, actor Kevin Costner was also in New Orleans at the same time.  Costner has developed an oil separation machine that can suck up over 200,000 gallons of oil a day.  Baldwin filmed Costner's device in action in the Gulf.

Bloggers Beware - They're Coming After You!

By Rep. Tom Price (R-GA)

Just when you thought it was safe to start expressing your right to free speech, Democrats in Congress are gearing up for a vote on a new piece of legislation to blatantly undermine the First Amendment. Known as the DISCLOSE Act (HR 5175), this bill – written by the head of the Democrats’ congressional campaign committee – is their response to the recent Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. In short, the Supreme Court found that the government could not restrict the free speech rights of individuals or other entities wishing to participate in the political dialogue.

Who Is Really To Blame For This Blowout?

By Charles Krauthammer
Investors Business Daily

Here's my question:  Why are we drilling in 5,000 feet of water in the first place?  Many reasons, but this one goes unmentioned:  Environmental chic has driven us out there.

As production from the shallower Gulf of Mexico wells declines, we go deep (1,000 feet and more) and ultra deep (5,000 feet and more), in part because environmentalists have succeeded in rendering the Pacific and nearly all the Atlantic coast off-limits to oil production.

Allow me to introduce you to a social network that caught my eye during a tax-day Chicago tea party rally.  In case you missed it, a CNN reporter got into an off-camera argument with a woman.  The woman who challenged the reporter was an SGP leader. 

If you want to play a more active role in ousting liberal politicians in your state, and preserving traditional conservative values, then you might want to consider joining SGP.  Smart Girl Politics currently has 30,000 members (including men), and a multitude of groups in most states with which you can get involved.  Sometimes they offer online training teleconferences.  In this week's podcast they will talk with Ginni Thomas about her latest initiative called  Ms. Thomas is married to Justice Clarence Thomas.

Environmentalists with Oil on Their Hands

By Henry P. Wickham, Jr.

When evaluating in an honest way all factors that contributed to the current pollution of the Gulf, we must ask why BP was drilling in 5,000 feet of ocean when there are so many other accessible and safe alternatives. There are large deposits of oil shale in Western Colorado that could easily and safely be extracted as it is now in Western Canada. We have all heard of the huge deposits of oil in ANWR, on Alaska's North Shore. Because of improved drilling technology, all available oil in ANWR can be extracted by using only 2,000 of its roughly 19,000,000 acres.  

BP now drills in 5,000 feet of ocean because these better alternatives have been foreclosed to the oil industry. Environmental groups have effectively stymied this safe and relatively easy production of oil in the name of some higher but more nebulous good. Where they once rationalized their campaign against oil companies based upon the threat of environmental degradation, environmental groups now use the increasingly dubious claims of global warming to justify their obstruction.

Did the U.S. Government Leak James O'Keefe's Privileged Attorney-Client Emails to the Press?

Obama Names Rationing Czar to Run Medicare

By Terence P. Jeffrey
May 26, 2010

Dr. Donald Berwick of the Harvard Medical School does not like free enterprise, but he does like rationing.

Two years ago, in England, he delivered a talk celebrating the 60th birthday of Great Britain’s National Health Service, the bureaucracy that runs that nation’s socialized medical system. He apparently entertained some fear that day that the Brits might turn back to free enterprise. So, in his address (as reprinted in the July 26, 2008, edition of the British Medical Journal), and as reported this week by Matt Cover of, he offered British socialists some words of advice.

“Please,” he told them, “don’t put your faith in market forces—it’s a popular idea: that Adam Smith’s invisible hand would do a better job of designing care than leaders with plans can. I find little evidence that market forces relying on consumers choosing among an array of products, with competitors fighting it out, leads to the health care system you want and need. In the U.S., competition is a major reason for our duplicative, supply driven, fragmented care system.”

NYC community board approves mosque near Ground Zero

[Ed:  Healing?  Like hell!]

By Allahpundit
May 26, 2010

The owners didn’t need the board’s approval, actually. But if the hearing hadn’t been held, there would have been no opportunity for Manhattanites to lecture objectors about planting “a seed of peace” in the form of a mosque that’s positively guaranteed to attract triumphalist radicals thanks to its location. We’ve already been over the arguments here so I won’t belabor them, but suffice it to say, everything’s going according to plan on the political side. First the right responds to this obvious provocation by wondering why an alleged gesture of healing and community wouldn’t be withdrawn now that it’s reopened all kinds of wounds. Then the left — and I guess, per CK MacLeod’s latest, the center — congratulates itself for not being as bigoted as the right, even though almost universally the complaint on our side isn’t that the mosque is unwelcome, it’s that it’s unwelcome there.

Last week, WND reported Free Press published a study advocating the development of a "world class" government-run media system in the U.S.

Now the group is pushing a new organization,, that advocates the downfall of "big media" and the creation of new media to "promote local ownership, amplify minority voices, support quality journalism, and bring local artists, voices and viewpoints to the airwaves."

Sestak-gate: You can affect possible impeachment

By Bob Unruh
May 26, 2010

The heat is building on Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., and the Obama White House to "come clean" over a conversation the congressman has described -- repeatedly and on the record -- as a job offer in exchange for dropping his primary campaign against White House favorite Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., which if true could be a crime.

And a spokesman for Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA., who has been raising questions about Sestak's comment from the beginning, noted that just because Obama's Justice Department has refused to investigate, there still should be an accounting.

Officials revealed the Office of Congressional Ethics accepts allegations and details of misbehavior from the public in a section allowing for "public input" about members of Congress. It also provides an e-mail option for information that comes from the public.

Recall Initiative in New Jersey Against Robert Menendez (D) - A Model For Other States?

Senator's recall sought for backing healthcare plan
Daily Nation
Trenton, NJ

New Jersey voters should be allowed to decide whether to seek removal of Democratic US Senator Robert Menendez from office because of his support for national healthcare reform and other measures, a recall group argued in court yesterday.
The recall group, which emerged from a local branch of the conservative Tea Party movement, appeared before the New Jersey state Supreme Court to argue that the state constitution allows for senators to be removed from office if they violate that constitution.

Dick Morris Says Obama Could Be Impeached

Sestak White House scandal called 'impeachable offense'
'It's Valerie Plame, only bigger, a high crime and misdemeanor'
By Drew Zahn
May 25, 2010

If a Democratic member of Congress is to be believed, there's someone in the Obama administration who has committed a crime -- and if the president knew about it, analysts say it could be grounds for impeachment.

"This scandal could be enormous," said Dick Morris, a former White House adviser to President Bill Clinton, on the Fox News Sean Hannity show last night.  "It's Valerie Plame only 10 times bigger, because it's illegal and Joe Sestak is either lying or the White House committed a crime.

"Obviously, the offer of a significant job in the White House could not be made unless it was by Rahm Emanuel or cleared with Rahm Emanuel," he said.  If the job offer was high enough that it also had Obama's approval, "that is a high crime and misdemeanor."

"In other words, an impeachable offense?"  Hannity asked.

"Absolutely," said Morris.

Apple Takes a Bite out of (R) Candidate Ari David's Free Speech Rights

by Ari David
Candidate for Congress
California 30th District

Last week I released to the public my experience with Apple regarding the rejection of a campaign iPhone app that I had designed to help get the message out about my run for Congress.

Here is the latest on the iPhone app front.  My team did some research into the type of apps with political or social content that Apple either approved or denied, and this is what we found.

If your app derides Christianity, the app is cool with Apple.  The example we found is an app called BibleThumper.

Another app that is okay with Apple celebrates the life and accomplishments of a murderous communist thug.  Enter the world of iChe, an iPhone app dedicated to the musings of Che Guevara.

Now, if you have created an iPhone app called I-Slam in order to deride a hateful theology that preaches the abuse and/or murder of women, infidels, apostates, and homosexual, Apple says "shame on you" and tells you not to apply.  I-Slam is an app that criticizes the Koran for, well, just being the Koran and having an opinion on what the Koran actually says.  [Ed: I-Slam also includes a likeness of Mohammed.]

Audio clip below sourced from  Also see this article.

So, with all this going on, I think we can clearly see a pattern emerging here.  If you are a lefty, a commie, a radical muslim, an enviro-statist greenie or a Democrat party candidate with socialist/statist leanings that you wish to share far and wide, then have at it and create something for the iTunes app store.  But if you are a conservative who possesses dangerous notions like you love America, worship a just and forgiving God, or are in support of our troops when they go to war against the enemies of free people, Apple says you need not apply.

I guess I should have done this research before I hired a team to build an iPhone app for my campaign.

Silly me.

Now it's time for me to look into getting out of my two-year ATT commitment and pricing out the Droid.  Did you know that Verizon has better coverage and their color is red?  Just like California's 30th district will be in November after I defeat Henry Waxman.

Rev./Sen. James Meeks (D, IL) Steps Up To The Plate To Support School Vouchers

A New, Emerging Black Leadership
by Star Parker

The race issue refuses to disappear from American politics because problems tied to race persist.

Just as children are often the best witnesses to the shortcomings of parents, so the ill treated are often testimony to a nation’s shortcomings.

The civil rights movement showed that in a nation which is free, civil, and moral, a few can create a non-violent revolution and change the world when their claims are just and moral, and when they are willing to fight and persist.

Just as that movement, starting with a few black leaders in the 1960’s, showed that our nation was sick and needed to be healed, the same thing is happening today.

A superb example is the remarkable leadership of Rev. James Meeks in Chicago.

Pastor Meeks, the spiritual leader of one of Chicago’s largest black churches, is also a Democrat senator in the state legislature. Working with both Democrats and Republicans, and with the help of a free market think tank in Illinois, Meeks put together legislation to provide vouchers for kids in Chicago’s worst public schools to escape and attend a private school.

Rabid Leftists At the Commencement Podium

Graduation Lunacy

Education:  Universities are sending young achievers out into the world with the words of rabid leftists ringing in their heads.  It's a dismal picture, given the future the liberals running Washington have created.

Do Supreme Court Justices Really Want To Be Philosopher-Kings?

Too Many Judges Want Authority Beyond Their Constitutional Role
by Thomas Sowell
Investors Business Daily

You might think that being a Supreme Court justice would be the top of the line job for someone in the legal profession.  But many Supreme Court decisions suggest that too many justices are not satisfied with their role, and seek more sweeping powers as supreme policymakers, grand second-guesseers or philosopher kings.

Obama's 'Model Green Economy' in Spain is A Total Failure

How long, if ever, will it take for the American left-wing media to catch up with their counterparts in Spain?
Leaked Spanish Report:  Obama's Model 'Green Economy' is a Disaster
by Christopher Horner

As predicted was inevitable, today the Spanish newspaper La Gaceta runs with a full-page article fessing up to the truth about Spain's "green jobs" boondoggle, which happens to be the one naively cited by President Obama no less than eight times as his model for the United States.  It is now out there as a bust, a costly disaster that has come undone in Spain to the point that even the Socialists admit it, with the media now in full pursuit.

Islamist Org CAIR Attempts To Ban Free Speech in Tennessee Forum

Unindicted Co-Conspirator CAIR Tries To Ban Free Speech At Tennessee Tea Party
by Pamela Geller

I am one of the featured speakers at the Inaugural statewide Tea Party Convention in Tennessee’s beautiful Smoky Mountains this weekend. But look at this: the unindicted co-conspirator, terror-tied Muslim Brotherhood front group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is trying to get the good, decent Americans of the Tennessee Tea Party to crush free speech by dropping me from the Tea Party convention this weekend.

Why is CAIR starting this campaign now? This is all about the mosque that Muslims are planning to build near Ground Zero.

Google May Add Face Recognition Technology - A Stalker's Dream?

Google debates face recognition technology
By Maija Palmer in London

Google executives are wrestling over whether to launch controversial facial recognition technology after a barrage of criticism over its privacy policies.

Eric Schmid, chief executive, said a series of public disputes over privacy issues had caused the management team to review its procedurs and the launch of new technologies.  According to Google executives, facial recognition is one of the key topics of internal debate.
Privacy campaigners have raised fears that adding facial recognition to Googles would allow users to track strangers through a photograph, making it into an ideal tool for stalkers and identity fraudsters.

Government By Professor

America's Death by Professor
By Stuart Schwartz
American Thinker
May 20, 2010

Where professors rule, life is cruel.
That is the bottom line for the average American in this, the transformative age of the president the New York Times and Washington Post has called "Professor" Obama, who "schools" the ignorant at home and abroad. Never before have so many with so little humility gathered together in our government, each believing he "is the smartest guy in the room."

This is an administration stuffed with academics. And not just any academic: These are educators from elite universities, the kind of experts prized by a political and media elite seeking confirmation of a worldview that expects, notes the Washington Examiner, "the rest of us ... to shut up and do as we are told."

Inside the Beltway, "Harvard know-it-allness" is a prized commodity; outside, its practitioners are largely regarded as "obnoxious and arrogant" in the classroom and "jaw-droppingly incompetent" out of it. Small wonder trust in government has hit a fifty-year low.

Dale Peterson: The John Wayne Candidate America Needs

Can't help but indulge in a fantasy that Dale Peterson is actually running for President rather than as a candidate for Alabama Agriculture Commission.  Peterson is the John Wayne character that people like me have been waiting for in politics--a plain-speaking conservative with common sense, and who's not afraid to be politically incorrect.  Love it!  He's like a breath of fresh mountain air.

Audio: Obama's Social Security Number(s) = Possible Identify Fraud

This is a radio interview of Dr. Jerome Corsi who verifies that Barack Obama has used, or is using, a SS# beginning with 042. The number was issued in Connecticut, a place where neither Obama or his family members ever lived.  In addition, the number is linked to someone born in 1890. This number was discovered by a licensed investigator who accessed Obama's selective service record. Corsi further states that Obama has used a second SS# as well.   It is illegal to use more than one SS#, plus SS#s are not recycled after someone dies.

Imagine what the mainstream media's response would have been if this kind of information had been discovered about George Bush.

Texas SBOE Member, Barbara Cargill, Sets the Record Straight on Textbook Changes

The following information was sent to me in an email.  I attempted to link to the original source ( several times, but received an error page.  In any case, since the Texas State Board of Education's changes to the TEKS will have such an immense effect on textbooks across the entire nation, this information affects virtually everyone with kids in school.  I applaud the changes I see here.

Texas SBOE Member, Barbara Cargill, Sets the Record Straight on Textbook Changes
By Barbara Cargill, Chair, Committee on Instruction

It is after much hard work, and input from many, that I want to take this opportunity to provide every Texan with a ”Fact Sheet” to help clear up much of the misinformation from the media about the K-Grade 12 social studies standards.  Many of us on the State Board of Education (SBOE) continue to work diligently for rigorous history standards that teach our children about their rich heritage and emphasize our country’s founding principles. 

We want students to learn more about the Founding Fathers and patriot heroes of both our state and nation.

Important leaders who were neglected previously have been added to the standards.  These include John Quincy Adams, John Hancock and John Wise.

And we have placed stronger emphasis on key historical documents such as the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Students will learn the liberties and responsibilities guaranteed by each amendment in the Bill of Rights.

Here are examples of some of the outstanding standards that have passed so far:

TERROR ALERT FOR TEXAS: Suspect Enroute From Mexico to Texas

HOUSTON -- A Homeland Security Alert is asking Houston police and Harris County Sheriff’s deputies to keep their eyes open for a potential terrorist.

The alert focuses on Mohamed Ali, a suspected member of the terrorist group Al Shabaab. It indicates he may be traveling to the U.S. through Mexico.
Al Shabaab is a terrorist group based in Somalia with links to the Somali attacks dramatized in the movie “Blackhawk Down.”  A few months ago, the group announced its allegiance to Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden.

Who's Who On The Left: Know Your Enemies

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.  If you know yourself, but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.  If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

     --Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Those ancient words of advice are applicable today, especially in light of the unwelcome transformation taking place in America following the election of Barack Obama.  However, the enemies of conservatism have been amongst us since before we met Obama.  They will continue to grow across our country like an unwelcome cancer so long as they remain under our conscious radar.

If you want to know who the enemies of conservatism are so that you can stand against them, then you should view the organization names on, a list compiled by David Horowitz of Front Page Magazine.

Voter Fraud in 2010: Means to an End

Democrats and Vote Fraud: On the Road to Rigged Elections
by Scott Swett

Lest we forget, Democrats were not given a mandate in 2008 to nationalize General Motors, the insurance industry, and health care. Most Americans want government to be less expensive, less intrusive, and more accountable. Yet despite the looming prospect of electoral dismemberment in November, the Democrats continue pushing a radical agenda: piling up debt and creating new entitlements, with crushing tax increases inevitably to follow. Why the evident lack of concern?
Perhaps they intend to cheat.
A PowerPoint presentation available at describes new election legislation proposed by congressional Democrats. They intend to nationalize voter registration and force the states to eliminate voter ID checks, provide absentee ballots to all voters, register voters on Election Day, and permit felons (who overwhelmingly support Democrats) to vote. Each of these measures would create new opportunities for fraud.
