    American Thinker ^ | Steve McCann
    While the debt ceiling dance continues in Washington D.C. and the Republicans in the Senate are going wobbly, they need to understand they are dealing not only with an intransigent party in the White House but also someone that is the most incompetent president in modern history, and the worst steward of the American economy since the nation’s founding. The Obama sycophants often resort to the White House pre-packaged line that Obama inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression, as a means of deflecting responsibility onto George Bush. Like so many of the emanations from this administration that too…

    Billy Graham’s Prayer For Our Nation THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT’S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY! ‘Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called…
  • Actually, MSM, China’s an Economic Mess

    Fri Jul 22 06:17:51 2011 · by Rashputin · 13 replies
    In a repeat of Walter Duranty, tunnel-visioned liberals like Thomas Friedman keep ignoring China’s authoritarian-fueled chaos.America’s movers and shakers can’t seem to stop ogling Chinese authoritarian chic. While few would defend China’s repressive political system, numerous politicians, business executives, and pundits bow before China’s state-directed capitalism, equating authoritarianism with efficiency and ruthlessness with enlightenment. At the heart of this ogling lies an admiration for Beijing’s ability to undertake large projects far more quickly than America’s democratic gridlock would ever allow. In reality, Chinese central economic planning generates massive inefficiencies and imposes drastic human costs. Below is merely the short list….

    Eleven years ago, like every citizen elected to serve in Congress or any person appointed to any federal position, I swore an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.” I’ve always thought it significant that the Founders included domestic enemies in that oath of office. They thought liberty was as much at risk from threats within our borders as from outside, and French political thinker and historian Alexis de Tocqueville agreed with that warning. In the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the greatest threat to…
  • The Beltway Industry Full-Time Employment Act

    Dodd-Frank, the 2,300-page financial “reform” monstrosity spearheaded by Capitol Hill corruptocrats, turned 1 this week. It made too-big banks bigger. It made too-risky incentives riskier. It made a lousy economy lousier. Billed as a “consumer protection” act, Dodd-Frank has succeeded phenomenally — in protecting and stimulating the business-stifling business of government. Dodd-Frank is a tyrannical triumph of rule-makers, lobbyists and other non-elected spongers over taxpayers. If you don’t want an unseemly glimpse into the self-serving, sausage-making process that feeds the insatiable Beltway industry, read no further. The law’s implementation process is so far-reaching and Byzantine that every member of Congress…

    If you see something silly, say something: Homeland Security training video portrays all “terrorists” as white, middle class males Don’t they know stereotyping causes alienation, and alienation and poor self-esteem lead to radicalization? Now these poor men are going to have to deal with those additional radicalized Misunderstanders of Middle America and worry about backlash because of their portrayal in this video! And this is going to damage our standing with middle-class white guys abroad in nations that are our Friends and Allies, and create even more terrorists. Of course, the intention seems obvious. But by bending over so far…

    The DEA announced Thursday the results of Project Delirium. Agents said it was a 20-month long investigation that spanned the country with the La Familia Michoacana cartel as its target. DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart said the operation resulted in 1,985 arrests, $62 million in cash, and around 2,773 pounds of meth, 2,722 kilos of cocaine, 1,005 pounds of heroin, 14,818 pounds of marijuana and $3.8 million in other assets. Of those arrested, 35 were in Austin after law enforcement executed search warrants at 11 homes in the area on Wednesday.
  • Israel sees Libya as new source of arms for Gaza

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Libya has become a new source of smuggled weaponry for Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, a senior Israeli official said on Thursday. With eastern Libya largely held by rebels who rose up against Muammar Gaddafi in February, arms were being brought across the border, through neighboring Egypt, to the Islamist Hamas-ruled territory, Vice Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon said. “Weapons are available in Libya as a result of the unstable situation there, and Hamas has exploited it to buy weapons from Libyan smugglers,” he told foreign journalists in a briefing, without elaborating on the kind of munitions involved.

    Two years after he dramatically expanded the scope of so-called policy czars, President Obama this year quietly scrapped some of the most controversial posts, tamping down what had been a simmering constitutional fight with Congress. Thanks to what the White House says is a reorganization, czars no longer oversee health care or climate change policy, though less-visible officials such as “cybersecurity czar” and “Gulf Coast claims czar,” among others, are still on the job. But even as Capitol Hill’s objections have been overshadowed by other fights between the executive and legislative branches over the nation’s borrowing limit and the NATO-led…

    The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed the Government Accountability Office to conduct the study. “As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations…

    Eric Holder’s only defense of the ATF’s “Fast and Furious” program is that he didn’t know it existed. When Rupert Murdoch went before the British Parliament yesterday to testify about the News of the World hacking scandal, he did not attempt to downplay the severity of his employees’ crimes. Rather, he apologized for the damage done and then said, “I didn’t know of it.” When asked who, then, was responsible for the culture of criminality that had developed at News of the World, Murdoch told Parliament, “The people I trusted and the people they trusted.” Even longtime Murdoch haters had…

    China’s military is developing electromagnetic pulse weapons that Beijing plans to use against U.S. aircraft carriers in any future conflict over Taiwan, according to an intelligence report made public on Thursday. Portions of a National Ground Intelligence Center study on the lethal effects of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and high-powered microwave (HPM) weapons revealed that the arms are part of China’s so-called “assassin’s mace” arsenal – weapons that allow a technologically inferior China to defeat U.S. military forces. EMP weapons mimic the gamma-ray pulse caused by a nuclear blast that knocks out all electronics, including computers and automobiles, over wide areas….

    Richard A. Serrano Washington Bureau July 21, 2011, 3:41 p.m. Reporting from Washington— Two days after U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry was killed in December, the top ATF supervisors in Phoenix said in internal emails that weapons found at the scene in Arizona came from a failed agency sting operation. But nearly two months later, when U.S. Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) inquired about the origin of the guns, senior officials in Washington with the Justice Department and its Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were evasive. Grassley asked whether the guns were “used” in the killing. According…

    The federal government on Thursday ended its partial ownership of Chrysler, completing a sale of its stake in the automaker to Fiat S.p.A. of Italy for $560 million. The sale, which gives Fiat majority control of Chrysler, leaves taxpayers $1.3 billion short of recovering the $12.5 billion lent to the company as it slid into bankruptcy protection a little more than two years ago. The remaining balance belongs to the “old Chrysler” — a collection of unwanted assets being liquidated in bankruptcy — and is unlikely to be repaid, the Treasury Department said in a statement. “With today’s closing, the…

    Some national business leaders are outright opposing measures of fiscal responsibility. Fortunately, fiscal conservatives in Congress are fighting back. Case in point: reaction to House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee (T&I) Chairman John Mica’s (R–FL) proposed six-year reauthorization bill, which limits transportation spending to the federal fuel tax revenues flowing into the trust fund. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s reaction was to label the proposal “unacceptable.” Apparently in their view, the proposal doesn’t spend enough money on the business community. Chairman Mica quickly responded to the president of the Chamber on July 13, calling the reaction “most disappointing and a potential…

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Pentagon chief Leon Panetta has decided to end the ban on gays serving openly in the armed services and certify that repealing the 17-year-old prohibition will not hurt the military’s ability to fight, officials said Thursday. His decision, which was expected, comes two weeks after the chiefs of the military services told Panetta that ending the ban would not affect military readiness.

    This sort of thing should send a chill down the spine of anyone who understands what it means for a country to be free or for a school to be public. It never ceases to amaze. Sharia is putting down roots all over the West, in ever more explicit and obvious ways. And bien pensant folks on the Left continue to insist, fiercely and self-righteously, that nothing of the kind is going on — even though it’s happening right under their noses. One of the lastest breathtaking examples: a public middle school in Toronto where Friday prayers are part of…

Marco Sauceda, 30, entered County Court-at-Law No. 2 Judge Derek Flournoy’s courtroom Wednesday morning wearing a tan button down shirt and navy dress slacks, but by the end of the day found himself in county orange. Following a one-day trial and four-hour deliberation, a six-panel Angelina County jury concluded Sauceda was guilty of resisting arrest on March 15, 2009, while being pepper-sprayed, shot with a pepper ball gun and wrestled…

    Among the pressures facing police officiers working the streets of America is the rising number of people legally carrying concealed guns. But when one such licensee was pulled over in Canton, Ohio, an officer threatened to shoot him on the spot. Here’s the chilling video. The arrest took place in early June, but the video only came to light today from a group called Ohioans for Concealed Carry. They had been working on behalf of the driver of the Pontiac Grand Prix, known so far only as William, who was arrested and charged in the stop. As the 17-minute dashcam…

    When the US withdraws from Afghanistan, don’t expect much help for the people it leaves behind. Not so long ago, Western powers were doubling down on their commitment to Afghanistan. Dire warnings circulated about how the US “abandoned” the country after the Soviet retreat. This time, the West would stay and help Afghanistan achieve “stability”. It would withdraw only when “indicators” found that the Taliban insurgency had been contained. Now it is obvious that those indicators were set for President Obama’s re-election campaign in 2012. The course and timing of imperial retreats usually reflect circumstances in the imperial country, not…

    Obama halts plan to find bodies of American crewman from Arunachal Sandeep Unnithan | July 9, 2011 Chinese concerns over what it sees as American “intrusion” into Arunachal Pradesh have prompted the Obama administration to suspend plans for recovering bodies of crewmen who went missing there during the Second World War. Two expeditions planned in 2010 and 2011 were cancelled ostensibly because of the Chinese claiming that this was disputed territory. China considers the whole of Arunachal Pradesh as ‘South Tibet’ and protested expeditions by India and the US to recover the bodies of over 400 US aircrew who died…

In return, Pyongyang is supplying technology to Iran’s uranium enrichment programme that would allow it to increase its output. The disclosure marks a disturbing escalation in the race for nuclear weapons technology by the two states which are seen to present the biggest threat to global security. Mark Fitzpatrick, the IISS expert on weapons proliferation, said North Korea possessed a technological edge over Iran in making nuclear equipment. It…

    The Obama administration and opportunists in Congress are hard at work proving former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s motto: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” With a few notable exceptions — led by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who bravely took heavy fire from all sides of the political spectrum for daring to propose an entitlement-slashing budget last spring — they should be deeply ashamed for their contribution to the nation’s burgeoning fiscal crisis. And they should feel the lash every day between now and Election Day 2012. Start with pre-2011 Democratic Congress’ failure to…
