    It was announced over the weekend that on June 7 John Dickerson will replace Bob Schieffer as the host of CBS News’ “Face the Nation.” CBS News president David Rhodes — whose brother Ben is a top Obama official most famous for editing the truth out of the infamous Benghazi talking points — said of Dickerson, “John is first and foremost a reporter — and that’s what he’ll be as anchor of ‘Face the Nation.’ “His work in the studio will always be informed by what he’s learned in Iowa, in New Hampshire, on Capitol Hill — anywhere there’s news.”...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 23, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – A judge has barred a pro-life protester from setting foot in Washington, D.C., after he vocally interrupted Barack Obama's second inauguration. Rives Miller Grogan, 47, shouted pro-life slogans during the inaguration ceremonies as he dangled for five hours very high up in a tree, near the Capital Hill reflecting pool. Eyewitnesses say he only stopped during Beyonce's rendition of the national anthem. The California-based activist and former pastor has been arrested numerous times over the last four years – including running onto the field at a Cincinnati Reds baseball game with a sign...

    When George W Bush declared war on an abstract noun – "Terror" – he was widely and inevitably mocked by the left for his foolishness. Not to be outdone, Barack Obama has used his second inaugural address to declare war on an even more nebulous threat to the security of the world: reality, itself. Here's how he put it in his inaugural address: (H/T Theo Spleenventer; Bishop Hill) We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science,...
  • Lord Monckton: Obama’s ‘Inauguration’ Signals End of the Left

    I admire England’s Lord Christopher Monckton. He has an impressive history that includes careers as a scientist, editor and journalist, political leader, policy advisor and businessman. He is a strong, fearless voice of reason in the face of the tyrannical, freedom-robbing global warmist hoax. So, it was with great interest that I read his latest column at WorldNetDaily. His piece titled, “Obama’s ‘Inauguration’ Marks End of the Left,” makes the case that Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) and his atrocious, lawless behavior in the United States presidency will ultimately discredit the Left and end its political force. He...

    Obama’s speech: Very long on gaseous generalities; exiguous with details. “Par for the course,” you say. Yes and no. Yes, an inaugural speech is intended to set the tone for an administration rather than spell out in detail a policy program. I appreciated, as must every American of good will, his promise that his oath of office was before “God and country, not party or faction.” I wish I could believe it. Most leftist commentators I’ve checked in on have regarded the speech as they regard Barack Obama, as a consummate example of “pragmatism.” I find it curious that...

    Oh, it’s fun to pick on celebrities who don’t know much about the issues on which they’re asked to pontificate — and at least James Taylor has the honesty to preface his answer to The Daily Caller’s Nicholas Ballasy with an admission of ignorance. In fact, he does so twice, when Nicholas asks him about Obama’s continuation of George Bush’s drone policy and on the “executive orders” Obama promised on gun control (actually executive actions, most or all of which don’t require actual EOs). At some point, it’s easy to feel a little sympathy for Taylor, who must be thinking...

    Rarely have second terms lived up to the hopes and expectations of presidents or their electorates. FDR's began with an attempt to pack the Supreme Court by adding new justices and a second Depression of 1937. He was rescued only by the war in Europe in 1939 and the GOP's nomination of "the barefoot boy from Wall Street," Wendell Willkie. What can be called Harry Truman's second term was a disaster. In 1949, the Soviets exploded an atom bomb and China fell to Mao. In 1950, the Rosenbergs were convicted as atomic spies for Stalin and North Korea invaded the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 21, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – In his second inaugural address, President Barack Obama hailed a riot in which homosexual rioters, some dressed in drag, pelted police officers with bottles and attempted to set them on fire for raiding a mafia-controlled gay bar. “We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall,” the president said just after noon today. The Stonewall Riots took place on June 28, 1969,...

    American Thinker ^ | 01/22/2013 | Jeannie DeAngelis
    On Inauguration Day there was lots of talk about laying aside partisan differences and coming together as a nation. However, during the inaugural luncheon Michelle Obama's body language indicated that if she has anything to say about it over the next four years, laying aside and coming together will include rolling her eyes. [SNIP] Then the President 'laid aside' and 'came together' by accusing political adversaries who were genuinely wishing him well of being those who trade "absolutism for principle...substitute spectacle for politics...[and] treat name-calling as reasoned debate." Part of the ceremony included freshly-tanned Republican Speaker of the House John...

    American Spectator ^ | 1.22.13 | John R. Guardiano
    In his second inaugural address, Obama makes clear that it’s fight night in America. snip Indeed, Obama’s second inaugural address was a liberal wet dream: It pressed all of the Left’s erogenous zones: • Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security? Obama vowed not to change or reform them — even though they are driving us toward financial insolvency, and even though they provide workers with a relatively lousy return on their investment. • “Climate change”? It is real, and it must be addressed — now! • “Sustainable (read: green) energy”? “America cannot resist this transition. We must lead it” — now!...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | January 21, 2013 | Joel B. Pollak
    President Barack Obama's second inaugural address has been described as one of the most partisan ever given, heralding a sweeping left-wing agenda and demonizing his opponents. But President Obama's target is not simply the Republican Party: it is the Constitution itself, and the values of liberty that it enshrines. In the address itself, President Obama made the case that liberty is not timeless; that it must adjust to the times, and that "preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action"--not to defend those freedoms from infringement, but to give them "meaning" through government regulation and redistribution. White House communications director...

    WASHINGTON -- Four years after making history by becoming the first African-American president, Barack Obama will kick off his second term on Monday with a scaled-back inauguration that reflects the tempered expectations for his next four years in office. Lingering high unemployment, bitter political battles and a divisive re-election campaign have punctured the mood of optimism and hope that infused Obama's 2009 inauguration after a sweeping election win. This time, Obama's inauguration will feature smaller crowds and a reduced slate of inaugural balls and parties to match the more subdued tenor of the times. When Obama raises his right hand...

    After CNN correspondent Jim Acosta felt like pinching himself at Monday's inauguration parade, host Wolf Blitzer couldn't contain himself as he tried to get the attention of both President Obama and Vice President Biden. Blitzer gushed that "Look, this is history over here," as the President and First Lady made their way down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the White House. He waved to Obama saying "Mr. President," but was drowned out by crowd noise. Blitzer did the same with Vice President Biden.

    If you did not already know that the President has no grasp of history, no knowledge of what he is saying, this should help confirm it. According to the transcript released by the White House, President Obama channeled Neville Chamberlain, using the phrase "peace in our time" to tout his reelection. The President explained (emphasis mine): We will support democracy from Asia to Africa, from the Americas to the Middle East, because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. And we must be a source of hope to the poor,...

    Obama's Inauguration Day: All That's Missing Is The Queen's Golden Coach Jonathan Freedland The Guardian, 20 January 2013 Barack Obama was treated to a performance by the cellist Yo-yo Ma at his first inauguration in 2009. America will on Monday witness its quadrennial act of political alchemy. The base metal of a previously partisan candidate is transformed by the incantation of a few, solemn words into gold, becoming not just a head of government but a head of state – the only figure capable of transcending low politics and representing the republic itself. That, at least, is the idea. Inauguration...

    This Newsweek cover is just laughable. And offensive if you ever get around to stopping laughing. Yes, this is how they think of Obama in their hearts but in the end, this is just stunt journalism. This is the same as DC killing Superman back in the 90's. They've ceased caring about what they're writing about. Everything is good or bad simply based on how many heads turn to look. It's a stunt. They've clearly ceased to care about journalism in any way, shape or form. They don't care if what they do is impressive or a car wreck as...

    Street vendors and souvenir stores across Washington, D.C. are selling posters depicting President Obama as Jesus Christ — and one national news publication called him the “Second Coming.” The poster, which does not have the official endorsement of the White House, features an image of the president in prayer with the headline, “Prophecy Fulfilled.” “Barak is of Hebrew origin and its meaning is ‘flash of lightning,” the poster notes, referencing a passage in in the Old Testament book of Judges. Hussein, they allege, is a Biblical word meaning “good and handsome.” “So you see, Barak was destined to be a...
