A WIMPY METROSEXUAL HOOKED ON THE COCAINE OF ADULATION Print E-mail
Written by Ralph Peters   
Tuesday, 21 April 2009

My president went to Trinidad and Tobago, and all I got was this lousy Che Guevara T-shirt.

At a Caribbean resort, Obama grinned through a semi-erotic encounter with Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, then failed to answer a "strategic rape" charge lodged against America by ex-Sandinista Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua (who knows plenty about rape).

Ignoring America's allies in favor of photo ops with anti-American leftists, such as Ecuador's Rafael Correa and Chavez, Obama blamed the United States for Latin America's problems.

Obama needs to get up off his knees. Foreign leaders have already pegged him as the wimpiest metrosexual this side of the men's grooming-products counter at Barney's.

THE BROKEN FANTASY OF THE 'INCOME' TAX Print E-mail
Written by Richard Rahn   
Wednesday, 22 April 2009

Do you know what the word "income" means? My large Webster's dictionary is able to provide a clear and comprehensive definition in a mere 52 words.

The shortest definition the Internal Revenue Service could provide in response to my request for its definition was 140 words - but the word income was included 10 times, missing the point that you do not include the word to be defined as part of the definition.

Last week, I was in a meeting with some of the nation's best and most experienced tax lawyers and tax economists, several of whom had served in the Treasury, and, again, there was the general lament that the tax code is so complex it is beyond their understanding and repair.

Those who claim that the government will be able to get a lot more tax revenue by increasing tax rates on the rich live in a fantasy world.

WHY THE LEFT IS STILL SO ANGRY Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Joel Wade   
Friday, 24 April 2009

You get good at what you practice, good or bad.   And guess what the left has been practicing forever - since at least the time of the French Revolution? Anger, outrage, looking for every way that things do not match their ideal - and complaining loudly and rudely about every single one of them.

If you had spent years learning and repeating leftist slogans, going over and over all of the imagined evils of the world and how your country had caused every last one of them, and feeling and expressing your anger, disgust, and outrage about them at every opportunity, how easy would it be for you to simply put all of those feelings aside when your guy wins the presidency?

Well, Obama is in. By his actions he looks to be the most left wing president ever in United States history.

He's going around the world personally apologizing for the United States to every tin pot dictator he can bow down before or shake hands with. He's destroying our system of free enterprise, scapegoating business for the damage that the government has done, disclosing military secrets in a time of war (the selective release of the CIA memos) and undermining the ideals and founding principles of the United States at every opportunity.

You'd think the left would be ecstatic. You'd think they'd be happy and serene seeing their vision come into active application at the highest levels of government.  But they aren't. In fact, they're as angry as ever.

HALF-FULL REPORT 04/17/09 Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Friday, 17 April 2009

We can raise a full glass of your favorite adult beverage to all the Tea Party participants - and to the one group of Americans the Zerocrats despise above all others:  our soldiers in the US military.

All of us want to raise our glass the highest this week to the Navy SEALs who popped those three Somali pirates.  And I'm sure you want to hear the real story of what happened.   Especially because there is a revoltingly opportunistic and cowardly side to it.  Guess which side Zero is on.

Why, for example, did it take SEAL Team Six (aka DEVGRU, Navy Special Warfare Development Group, the Navy's equivalent of Delta Force) over 36 hours to get to the scene?

Because Zero refused to authorize the SEAL deployment for those 36 hours, during which the OSC - the on scene commander, Cmdr. Frank Castellano of the USS Bainbridge - repeatedly requested them.

FATS AND FAIRNESS Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 16 April 2009

"Hey, guys!  Got a hot date?  Be sure you treat her to a nice salmon dinner!"

That's the message young bachelors could get from a recent study.  Another message of the study is that socialism may get less attractive to Americans as they age.  How could the same research study have both of these results?  It all has to do with the relationship between fats and fairness.

The research is in the new interdisciplinary field of Neuroeconomics, which studies how the brain makes economic decisions. It was conducted jointly by the Interdepartmental Center for Research in Molecular Medicine and psychiatrists in the Department of Applied Health and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Pavia in Italy.

The implications of the research are politically vast.

DO YOU HAVE A PLAN B? Print E-mail
Written by Rebel Holiday   
Friday, 17 April 2009

Welcome to the first column in a new To The Point feature - Plan B.

You may have heard the saying, "A few people make things happen. Some people watch things happen. Others wonder what happened."

Not everyone has a plan. Most people who do have a plan are only operating out of their Plan A.  They live a certain way, accomplish certain goals, make decisions, and then live based on these outcomes.  Plan A is great when it works. And it has worked because we've been living in a stable country during a prosperous period in history.  

Unlike those living in countries with turmoil, shortages, violence or civil unrest, in the U.S. we have been able to make goals, plans and decisions based on assumptions that "reality" would be certain ways.  Although we've had changes and challenges, we have not had our reality turned upside down. Yet. 

That "yet" is looming on our horizon.  We're going to discuss why you need a Plan B for it, and how to get one.

SHOULD PAKISTAN'S NUKES BE DESTROYED LIKE IRAN'S? Print E-mail
Written by Caroline Glick   
Friday, 17 April 2009

In the current era of ideological polarization, throughout the West, the Right and the Left diverge on almost every issue. One of the few convictions that still unifies national security strategists across the ideological spectrum is that it would be a global calamity of the first order if al-Qaeda gets its hands on nuclear weapons.

Unfortunately, due to the rapid demise of nuclear-armed Pakistan as a coherent political unit, this nightmare scenario is looking more possible than ever. Indeed, if events continue to move in their current direction, it is more likely than not that in the near future, the Taliban and al-Qaeda will take possession of all or parts of Pakistan's nuclear arsenal.

Given the failure of the US's political strategies of securing Pakistan's nuclear arsenal by supporting Pakistan's government, and fighting the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, it is becoming apparent that the only sure way to prevent the Taliban/al-Qaeda from taking control over Pakistan's nuclear weapons is to take those weapons out of commission.

CREEPY RACIST LIES Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 16 April 2009

"The White House said the president is unaware of the tea parties and will hold his own event today," ABC's Dan Harris reported on the "Good Morning America" program the morning of April 15.

This was, of course, a preposterous lie.  Mr. Obama may not approve of the Tea Party phenomenon, but he had to be aware of an event that drew hundreds of thousands of people in hundreds of cities across the country. 

But if the president is as clueless as his aides represented him to be to Mr. Harris, let's hope his foreign intelligence is better than his domestic intelligence is.

The person most responsible for gathering domestic intelligence is the director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, a former governor of Arizona who was a U.S. attorney before that.  She is not only wholly unqualified, she has now descended into creepy racism.

SOMALI AND IRANIAN HOSTAGE-TAKERS DESERVE THE SAME FATE Print E-mail
Written by Michael Ledeen   
Thursday, 16 April 2009

In American custody in Iraq are two Iranian terrorists, Ali Musa Daqduq and Qayis Khazali. Both were captured in Iraq in the spring of 2007, following the bloody attack in Karbala in which five American soldiers were murdered. 

U.S. military forces in Iraq discovered that both of them were working for the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force.  The British want them released.  They want them exchanged for Brits being held hostage in Iran.  Those hostages are used to blackmail their country into doing things it might not otherwise do. 

Knowing all this about the Brits, one has to wonder to what extent we, too, are being blackmailed by the mullahs.  There are now four Americans held hostage now in Iran, the most well-known being Roxana Saberi, and two in North Korea.

THE DOOM OF STAGFLATION Print E-mail
Written by Richard Rahn   
Friday, 17 April 2009

When will the next round of inflation hit, and how can we protect ourselves?

Many economists and commentators, including yours truly, have warned about the potential of a new round of high inflation due to the great expansion of government spending. But does an increase in government spending necessarily translate into higher inflation?

The answer is "no," but it most often does, and this is why.  It's also why we are headed for the doom of Jimmy Carter's stagflation -- high unemployment and economic stagnation combined with high inflation -- on steroids.

THE STRENGTH TO STRUGGLE FOR YOUR LIBERTY Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Joel Wade   
Friday, 17 April 2009

I want to encourage you this week to take a good hard look at how you're spending your time and energy. Consider any time you spend in a state of helplessness or worry as a mistake, as a wrong turn in your thinking.

This is not an invitation to feel bad about yourself - we all feel helpless and worried at times. This is simply to notice how much time you are spending spinning your wheels, and to consider what a more productive and effective direction might look like.

Consider any time you spend taking effective action, or in a state of joy, feeling love, curiosity, interest, playfulness, and enterprise as a success. Savor, enjoy, and revel in these times, so that you strengthen them in your system, making those states the foundation of your being.

That is a crucial element of the tea parties. Your own sense of efficacy, your own sense that you are taking an active position toward an oppressive government, and your own sense of community with others of like mind, so that you can see and feel that you are not alone. That is the beginning of a movement of effective people taking charge of their future.

HALF-FULL REPORT 04/10/09 Print E-mail

Friday, 10 April 2009

Ahh, Friday.  Here in the US, folks say TGIF.  Our British cousins, however, say THITWA - thank heavens it's the weekend again.  Time to settle in to a quiet corner booth in the HFR Saloon with a pint of Theakston's Old Peculier real ale, and enjoy reading a good British newspaper, the London Telegraph.

Particularly today (4/10), as the Brits simply unload on Zero, giving him a new nickname, President Pantywaist.  Calling him "the new surrender monkey" for his performance at the G20, they note his Europe trip is "the most successful foreign policy tour since Napoleon's retreat from Moscow."

And you thought he was losing popularity on our side of the Pond.

Let's stay overseas for awhile. Some good things are happening.
