You Must Be Joking

This is one of those headlines that makes my day:


For the love of God.

Whose Side Are They On?

Someone needs to get to the bottom of this:


When guns are outlawed, only BATF members will have guns ... for the highest bidder.

Where's that investigative bulldog, Janet Reno, when we need her?

Insanity On The Left

I don't think I've ever read a story line - especially one so often repeated - that was as silly as that which the leftists in this country are spewing right now.  About the evil Koch brothers.

Never heard of them?  Don't worry.  They're not the devil incarnate that they're made out to be.

But you couldn't tell it by reading the output these days from the loony left.

See "Koch Derangement Syndrome Jumped The Shark Rather Quickly."

A few years ago they were fixated on all things Halliburton.  Today it's Koch.  In neither case was their paranoia  grounded in reality.

Tomorrow?

I can't wait.

Democrats To the Rescue

Pathetic:


That's so laughable it's not worth considering.

Gas Prices Are Obama's Fault

And part of his plan.

And America now knows it.

Kimberley A. Strassel:
We can expect in coming months to hear many sober analysts attempt to explain the complex reasons for rising oil prices: inflation, Middle East tremors, growing demand. Expect, too, for all those reasons to vanish behind what most Americans will see as the far more obvious (and graspable) cause: President Obama's regulatory assault on domestic oil and gas production.

This is, after all, a White House that has put at the center of its domestic agenda its goal of a "green economy," which hinges on making fossil fuels too expensive for Americans to purchase. In January 2008, candidate Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle that under his cap-and-trade plan, "electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." Steven Chu, now Secretary of Energy, told this newspaper in the same year: "Somehow, we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe." That would be, oh, $10 a gallon.

In March of last year, Mr. Obama reversed or scaled back nearly every major offshore oil opportunity that has come about since the price spike of 2008—effectively reimposing a moratorium on drilling off the coasts. His administration has killed leases in developmentally crucial areas of Alaska. His EPA has refused to issue permits. The White House used the BP oil spill as an excuse to also shut down the deep-water Gulf.

Onshore? Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has revoked oil-and-gas leases. The EPA is suffocating the coal industry with regulation. One of the president's only clear State of the Union proposals was to raise taxes on oil and gas. The White House's energy policy, says Dan Kish of the Institute for Energy Research, is "embargoing our own energy supplies to drive up their costs."

The White House sniffs trouble and this week rushed to issue its first Gulf deep-water permit since the spill. Yet the administration has so much wrapped up in its green-energy agenda—stimulus grants, subsidies, programs in every department—it seems unwilling to do more. The EPA has refused to budge on controversial carbon-emissions regulations. The president is now pushing for a "clean energy" mandate, the ugly stepchild of cap and trade. The White House is trying to recruit gullible Republicans to a "comprehensive" energy bill, though its goal appears to be to cloak a further renewable agenda behind the few bones it would toss to natural gas or nuclear.

The administration took a midterm election beating because the public saw it move to the left of reality on spending and health care. Rising gas prices now threaten to catch it out the same way on energy. If it wants to recapture public favor, it will have to make a major shift. [link]
The master plan: Destroy the American economy.

These people must be stopped.

There's No Middle Ground On This

Things have gone too far.  Intimidation.  Threats.  Physical confrontation.

And it gets worse with each passing day.

So why isn't Obama doing something to stop the violence?

Because he's up to his eyeballs in creating and nurturing it.

He and they must not succeed.

Libyans Call On Our President For Help

Well, sorta.  Since they know Obama is incapable and unwilling to do anything for them, though, they go to the man who actually knew his rightful place in the world, knew what authority it rendered, and knew how to use it:

Libyan Rebel Fighter Begs For Help From GEORGE BUSH

Much derision was heaped upon George W. Bush during the Iraq War over his Coalition of the Willing, a loose amalgam of countries united behind the invasion of Iraq and overthrow of the Hussein regime in 2003. A coalition, it can be said, that came together solely attributable to the persuasive efforts of Mr. Bush.

So what about Obama's effort to form an international coalition to force Khaddafy out before even more lives are lost? So far it consists of him and Hillary. With the usual suspects in the media tagging along.  And we're not so sure about Bill Clinton's spouse on any given day.

The rest of the world? They watch and wait, trying to figure out what the Obama administration is doing. And a frustrating wait it is.

The Libyan people cry out to be rescued.  Well, on behalf of the American people, I have this reply:  We cry out to be rescued as well, brothers and sisters.
