    Commercial flight with a pet carrier 99.7% cheaper... Although über-patriot Allen West first made clear to Mark Levin (on his radio show Monday 8/11) that he's loathe to engage in 'small ball' with some of the more petty White House scandals, he nonetheless was asked 'how do you justify' the latest Obama middle-finger-to-America -namely, the shipping of 'Bo' the dog to Martha's Vineyard via two exotic, VERY expensive-to-operate Marine VTOL aircraft... West responded 'You don't' justify it- labeling it 'an outrage'. With Obama -in West's eyes- 'It's not about serving... it's about being served.' He then described today's 'progressive' debt + money-printing-and-spending...

    WASHINGTON — Barack Obama, the U.S. Senate candidate from Chicago who has become the Democratic Party's latest rising star, is drawing enough support from the entertainment industry to put on his own variety show. From comedian Chris Rock to singer Barbra Streisand to musician Herbert Hancock, entertainers have written out checks of $1,000 or $2,000 to help the 42-year-old Illinois state senator win the seat being vacated by retiring GOP Sen. Peter Fitzgerald. Film directors Rob Reiner ("The American President") and Edward Zwick ("The Last Samurai" and "Courage Under Fire") both contributed in the past three months, according to Obama's...

    What do Presidents Bush Sr., Clinton, and Bush Jr. all have in common? None of them cut Social Security to reduce the deficit – but President Obama's new budget proposal will do just that. His plan would especially slash benefits for future retirees, and the cuts just keep getting worse year over year. President Obama included these cuts, known as the chained CPI, in his "grand bargain." He released his budget today, and he needs to hear that these cuts are completely unacceptable.

    It has long been observed that you can usually tell what a Democrat is up to, generally, by what they accuse the opposition of specifically doing. This phenomenon is much more clearly manifested in Obama -- so much so, that you might be able to write a predictive activity log for him, simply by seeing what he accuses Republicans of doing. On April 9th, it was reported that Obama accused the Republicans of using 'political stunts' to block gun control. Wait... what? Where did he make this accusation? Near Sandy Hook, Connecticut. What did he do the day before? Used...

    Michelle Obama offered a peek inside the first family's healthy habits on Monday, revealing there's one thing they never talk about at home: weight. The first lady joined a Google+ Hangout for her "Let's Move" initiative to chat about her tips for helping children stay healthy. When asked what advice she would offer to young people struggling with their weight, she said it's an issue the Obamas have talked about at home and advised it's more important to focus on fitness than numbers on a scale. "You know,when I talk to my kids...we were going through some of these similar...

When a weak dog encounters a possibly hostile strong dog, he does not fight or even try to run away.

Not Bo! Please! Don't make me eat Bo. Not even House Speaker Boehner's tears had persuaded enough Obstructionists to free the middle class. President Obama continued to insist that slightly higher taxes on the filthy rich were mathematically necessary, that without them his hands would be tied even to the point that he might be unable to send more fighter jets to the democratically elected freedom loving Muslim...

    Gu Kailai, the wife of ousted Communist Party official Bo Xilai, was found guilty and given a suspended death sentence on Monday for the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood in the southwestern city of Chongqing last year, according to observers in the courtroom. They said the Intermediate People's Court in the eastern city of Hefei gave Ms. Gu a death sentence with a two-year reprieve—a penalty that had been widely expected and is normally commuted to a life sentence in prison after two years of good behavior. Zhang Xiaojun, a Bo family aide, was also found guilty but given...

    Does the first dog, Bo, get his biggest headlines during wartime? A new study, "The Politics of Pets in the White House," suggests that presidents carefully calculate when best to showcase their furry friends–and periods of military conflict tend to be primetime for presidential pets. "In times of crisis, the American people want a steady hand at the helm," the study notes. "How else to establish that a president is in charge than seeing the commander-in-chief confidently playing fetch with a four-legged companion in the middle of the afternoon?" The report, primarily conducted by researchers at George Washington University,...

    President Obama has unleashed a particularly unusual fundraiser for his 2012 campaign. One Internet ad starts with a two-toned blue background, like dozens of other pro-Obama spots. Then the furry star pops into the frame, tongue out and ready to frolic. “Join Pet Lovers for Obama,” the ad implores. The unlikely pitchman is Bo, the White House family pet, who may well be the first “first dog” to emerge as a central player in a presidential reelection campaign. Political pets have long attracted inordinate attention, from then-Sen. Richard M. Nixon’s dog, Checkers — the focus of an early 1950s scandal...

It was the first time a specific motive has been revealed for Neil Heywood's murder last November, a death which ended Chinese leader Bo Xilai's hopes of emerging as a top central figure and threw off balance the Communist Party's looming leadership succession.

Cute for sure, but not everybody’s wagging their tail over what is the first use of a presidential pet to raise campaign cash. On the Obama-Biden campaign website, Bo is featured because it is the third anniversary of his adoption. “It’s a promise Barack made to his daughters--that if he won the election in November 2008, he would buy them their long-awaited puppy. On April 14, 2009, Barack followed through on his promise to Malia and Sasha--the...

    Many China watchers were stunned by the announcement of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee on March 15 that prominent Party leader Bo Xilai had been removed from his post. For the past several years, Bo Xilai was a rising star in Communist China’s firmament. Many western observers have speculated that he would one day be China’s “paramount leader.” As Party Secretary governing Chongqing (formerly Chungking), a sprawling megalopolis of 30 million people, Bo appeared to be on the way up. He was a member of the national 24-member governing Politburo and was expected by many to be...

The blame ultimately belongs on him, Obama told the staffers, and he had no plans to cast any of them aside.

It also means failure, accidents and mistakes. This, in turn, leads to learning, which is why successes outweigh the failures. However, humans must be free to understand the consequences of their actions. Without consequences, there is little learning. When freedom prevails, the ingenuity and inventiveness of people creates incredible wealth. This is the source of the natural improvement of the human condition. Capitalism is created by free people. Socialism, on the other...

    President and First Lady are partying like rock royalty. The same hypocrite who says our energy costs must “necessarily skyrocket” to fund his political ambition, is giving Marie Antoinette a run for her money when it comes to spending national treasure on personal luxuries. While much of the country is struggling to pay their bills, the President and First Lady are partying like rock royalty. The collection of talent that has made the pilgrimage to the White House to entertain Obama and friends is nothing less than amazing: Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Tony Bennet, Paul Simon, Marc Anthony, Herbie Hancock,...

    Two workers injured when an oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico told Congress on Thursday that the companies in charge of the doomed drilling operation cut corners and neglected maintenance in a race toward higher profits. Oil has been spewing since the Deepwater Horizon blew up off the coast of Louisiana April 20, killing 11 workers. More than 100 others escaped. "They gambled with our lives," laborer Stephen Stone told the House Judiciary Committee. He said the accident was "set in motion years ago by these companies needlessly rushing to make money faster, while cutting corners to save...

    The big oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico is now serving to prove to the DUmmies something most of us knew long ago...That Barack Obama is nothing but a complete BS artist. Yeah, he talks up a good storm but what does he actually DO? Mostly nothing which is why the DUmmies are now so frustrated with his lack of action as you can see in the THREAD, "White House in Denial; Public Wants Real Action on BP Oil Disaster." I've known a few people like Obama. Real big on talk but when it comes time to take...

    Barack Obama made millions in book royalties last year and took delivery of a special $1,600 gift - the family dog Bo, financial records show. Royalties from "Dreams From My Father" and "Audacity of Hope" earned him at least $1m each, according to filings released by the White House. Bo, a Portuguese water dog given to the Obamas by the late Senator Edward Kennedy and his wife was valued at $1,600 in Mr Obama's financial disclosure form. The value of Mr Obama's Nobel peace prize medal and diploma were "not readily ascertainable", the document said.

    Hey Bill, On the April 15th, 2010 broadcast of the O’Reilly Factor, you played a little too fast and loose with the truth when discussing the case of Lt. Col Terry Lakin. Lakin, whom we both recall refused orders to deploy to Afghanistan, cited lingering doubts over the constitutionality of Barack Obama’s presidency, and by extension, the legality of his orders to deploy. Before we get started, a word of advice: You should really skip the “Humble Correspondent” bit, your ego is enormous and dwarfed only by Obama’s. Your entire segment on Lakin was so laden with eye-rolls, snarky facial...

In the president's speech, Axelrod said, Obama will outline plans to bring "a measure of security to hard working middle class people across this country and people who aspire to be a part of the middle class, who have had such a hard time, not just for the...
