‘Will The American Spirit Survive Obama?’
ObamaNation item by Lloyd Marcus

I recently caught the last 5 minutes of “Rocky”, the classic movie starring Sylvester Stallone. During the finale, Championship Boxing Exhibition, Rocky, the extreme underdog amateur, was knocked down several times by powerful punches from the reigning champion. Upon being knocked down yet again, Rocky’s coach instructed, “Stay down!”

‘Will Obama/Holder Stop FBI Probe?’
Progressivism item by Cliff Kincaid

Left-wing activists showed up outside the FBI headquarters on Tuesday afternoon to protest FBI raids on what they and the media are calling “anti-war” and “peace” groups. But the evidence that some U.S. activists are involved with terrorist groups in the Middle East and Latin America is substantial.

Leveling The Playing Field
Socialism item by Robert Rohlfing

The time to face the reality of responsibility is now upon us!  Sacrificing to stay within our means and to hold the government accountable to do the same not only goes to deter the greed that all of us were enticed with be it the financial institutions, big business, big labor, big government, and yes us the citizens that took us off the tracks in the first place.

‘Why are Climategate Charlatans Still Free?’
GreeenIsm item by Alan Caruba

If I had engaged in activities that involved fleecing the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom of billions in public funds in the name of “climate research”, and it was found that I had manipulated the data to advance the “global warming” hoax, wouldn’t I be facing charges of fraud?

The Obama Nag, Body Armor Disparities & Dobsonian Maoists
General item by Frederick Meekins

Headline Potpourri #15
MSNBC denounced the Tea Party as overwhelmingly White. Will the network denounce illegal aliens as overwhelmingly Hispanic?

Senators threaten to raise energy costs during lame-duck session
GreeenIsm item by Marita K. Noon

“The reason for Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) is renewables are more expensive. No one would choose them if it wasn’t required.” This opinion was expressed by Steve Michel, Chief Counsel for Western Resource Advocates’ (WRA) Energy Program, during a hearing held in New Mexico. A stated goal of WRA is to “advance clean energy to reduce pollution and global climate change” and the specific goal of the Energy Program is, “to promote sustainable energy technologies—such as solar and wind power.”

No ‘coming out party’ for gays in the military
Progressivism item by Marsha West

The radical Left’s effort to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT), a law that bans homosexuals from serving openly in the military, has failed.  On September 21 the Senate Democrats were unable to achieve the 60 vote threshold to get cloture which was needed to advance a Defense Authorization bill.  Democrats included the repeal provision in the bill.  The bill authorizes $726 billion in military spending for next year and includes $159 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and a pay raise for the troops.

Is the Term “Indian Summer” Racist?
Political Correctness item by John W. Lillpop

Those of us who live in California have grown accustomed to a unique weather phenomenon that occurs each year as the traditional summer season winds down. In September, October, and even as late as November, California has what is indelicately referred to as “Indian Summer.” The term refers to the final blast of hot, dry weather for the year that occurs well into fall.

Obama and security team to spy on Internet users

President Barack Obama and his national security team are seeking an expansion of the U.S. government’s role in eavesdropping on the Internet including emails, social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as BlackBerries.

‘Will the Truth Catch Up to Bill Ayers and his Comrades?’
Crime item by Cliff Kincaid

Christopher G. Kennedy, chairman of the University of Illinois Board of Trustees, led the effort to deny Bill Ayers the title of professor emeritus because Ayers had written a book dedicated in part to the killer of his father, Robert F. Kennedy. But this “book,” titled, Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism, had been written back in 1974. Let’s hope that Christopher Kennedy’s expression of disgust can not only lead to a review of what Ayers said but what he did—in the form of eyewitness testimony that Ayers had knowledge of a bombing plot that took the life of San Francisco Police Officer Brian V. McDonnell back in 1970. The case is still open and will be the subject of an October 21 conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

The October Surprise!
Elections item by J. D. Longstreet

Everyone, no matter what his or her political philosophy, understands the coming election is a watershed election.  It is a pivotal moment in American history.  It is, many claim, the most important election in the history of the United States for it will decide if America continues as a constitutional republic or transforms into the Socialist, Marxist, state of which the current Obama Regime and liberal-socialist democrats are the vanguard.

‘GOP:  Missing Opportunities, or Missing the Point?’
RINO's item by Doug Edelman

Last week I became seriously torqued after hearing a couple of supposed GOP leaders interviewed on the Sunday Talk Shows.  Having to devote several days to the migration of my primary PC to a new machine following hardware failure allowed (forced) me to ruminate on this frustration even further, as I could not immediately write and publish my initial reactions!  In the interim, I have discussed my thoughts on the subject with a couple of people I respect, including a radio talk show host and a conservative Congressman who I consider friends.  The consensus of thought is presented here.

On the10th birthday of the UN’s Millennium Development Goals, officials are lamenting that the world has made little progress in meeting them. No one should be surprised.

Curt Schilling’s Rhode Island Hoodwink
General item by Diane M. Grassi

Curt Montague Schilling, has never been one to duck controversy nor a good game of old-fashioned hard ball. In fact, in the latter part of his Major League Baseball (MLB) career as a starting pitcher, who many experts believe will be an easy entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Schilling became a lightning rod for controversy.

Fifty years ago, Kennedy and Nixon changed our politics forever
Politics item by Michael M. Bates

On September 26, 1960, Senator John Kennedy and Vice President Richard Nixon appeared in the first of what came to be called the Great Debates.  How great they truly were is subject to dispute.  But there’s no doubt they altered American politics permanently.

Your Insane U.S. Energy Department
GreeenIsm item by Alan Caruba

In mid-September, Cathy Zoi, an Assistant Secretary of Energy, said that the U.S. Department of Energy has a “mandate” to issue regulations about what household appliances should be available to Americans in the future.

Black Panthers case: A travesty of justice, says former DOJ chief
Crime item by Jim Kouri, CPP

President Barack Obama’s handpicked U.S. Justice Department officials are ignoring civil rights cases in which the alleged victims are whites and they abandoned a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party that resulted in a “travesty of justice.” Christopher Coates, former voting chief for the department’s Civil Rights Division, testified at a hearing before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, after outcries from citizens’ groups and public-interest organization over the Justice Department’s stonewalling a full investigation.
