New Jersey, ten other States in an unconstitutional compact. The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a multi-State cap and trade scheme, violates the no-compact clause in the Constitution. So why won't New Jersey's governor do the obvious thing?
From No-Fly Zone to No-Float Zone: Mission Creep in Libya.  How will Obama win the war when he hasn't a clue what the mission is? Regime change by air strikes has failed to dislodge Muammar Gaddafi. What's next?
Conservative Party helps to stop Gay Marriage. Michael R. Long works out of a cluttered office above a Greek restaurant in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, one block from the liquor store that still bears his family’s name, with a replica John Wayne revolver and a photo of Ronald Reagan on the wall. Unlike other political bosses, he fields no phalanx of high-priced lobbyists and consultants. He is virtually unknown to most New Yorkers. But Mr. Long, the chairman of the state Conservative Party, has emerged this year as the single most potent — and immovable — obstacle to the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York. 
Tennessee legislature will vote to severely restrict government union collective bargaining. This new law has nothing to do with state budget deficits. Tennessee seeks a way to improve education quality by returning decision-making authority to the hands of elected, accountable school board officials and away from union leaders. 
"Cornel West’s criticism of Obama sparks debate among African Americans. Scholar Cornel West’s scathing critique of President Obama’s liberal bona fides in a series of recent interviews has ignited a furious debate among African-American bloggers and commentators. The well-known Princeton professor and author, who has released rap albums and starred in Hollywood films, had been a supporter of Obama in the 2008 presidential campaign but now calls the president a 'black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats.'” 
With Mike Huckabee and Haley Barbour out and Newt Gingrich floundering, there is talk of pushing for a President Rick Perry. Gov. Perry has insisted that he has no interest but the absence of Southern candidates may have changed his thoughts regarding the Presidential election 2012, where he ranks #13. 
Michele Bachmann closer to running for President. She's raising money fast, and many are urging her to run, after Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump dropped out.
As of now Bachmann ranks #3 in likelihood of winning the Republican nomination.
"Defendant Is Facing 'Worst-Case' Charges The charges lodged by New York prosecutors against Dominique Strauss-Kahn on Monday are extremely serious, said criminal-defense lawyers, and could lead to significant prison time for the former International Monetary Fund head if he is found guilty of even one of the main charges. 'Prosecutors have charged this as heavily as they possibly could have,' said Daniel J. Horwitz, a criminal-defense lawyer in New York and a former prosecutor in New York."  Why so much interest? Paying for Sarkozy support in Libya?
News from liberal la-la land: "'Dougie' rapper M-Bone dies in drive-by." A representative of the rap group said he was "the victim of a random act of violence" and "was a hardworking, passionate artist and dancer who will be sorely missed."  Gun control in la-la land is severe.
The evolutionary psychologist Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa outrageously claims at his blog on Psychology Today that black women are objectively less attractive and that it is not solely due to their average weight! Psychology Today does some damage control and pulls his article.
Previously, Kanazawa spouted some loathsome evobabble on Psychology Today about the "Savannah principle" which speculated about African brains in the past. For further details please see Evolutionary racism.
"Kohl's surprise retirement creates at least eight open seats that could help determine the balance of power in the Senate," and conservative Paul Ryan will likely decide this week whether to run for Kohl's seat. 
Chicken Little hysteria continues to be played by liberals over the debt ceiling. Democrats refuse to agree to meaningful spending cuts, and instead halt investment in two government pensions in order to postpone a default. 
The embarrassing and craven cowardice of atheist Richard Dawkins is being recognized in his own backyard. The British newspaper The Telegraph just ran a story entitled Richard Dawkins accused of cowardice for refusing to debate existence of God.
If Richard Dawkins finally agreed to debate Dr. William Lane Craig and a scientist at Creation Ministries International instead of making pitiful excuses, would Hispanic ladies finally believe Señor Dawkins has machismo? Please see the satirical essay Does Richard Dawkins have machismo?
Freedom of speech? Not in Britain, which has banned the new movie about Princess Diana portraying a conspiracy of "the British establishment – judges, lawyers, politicians, police chiefs, secret services, even newspaper editors – all of whom have been appointed to their positions because they are 'a safe pair of hands.'" 
Liberals try to censor embarrassing conspiracy theories in the United States too, but the First Amendment stands in their way.
"Huckabee says he won't run for president in 2012."  Perhaps Huckabee was drawing support away from Newt Gingrich. The big uncertainty is where Huckabee's supporters will go: to Newt, or to Mitt Romney, or to another candidate?
The Australian government is helping to fund an atheist convention. Meanwhile, the Australian economy descends downward. Apparently, Australian government leaders are ignoring the history of the atheistic Soviet Union.
On a related note, Conservapedia just created an article entitled Irreligion and superstition
Liberal double standard: Liberals seem just fine with the conspiracy theory promoted in the new movie about Princess Diana, despite how liberals ridicule any conspiracy theory unfavorable to themselves. 
Mike Huckabee announces tonight whether he's running for president. While Huck has little chance of winning the nomination, Newt Gingrich and neocons need Huckabee as a stalking horse to block Mitt Romney from winning. Will Team Newt be able to persuade Huck to run?
"On May 14, 1607, English settlers arriving under the authority of the Virginia Company of London chartered by King James I established the first permanent British settlement in North America at a place they named Jamestown, Virginia. "We landed all our men," George Percy wrote in his account of the event, "which were set to work about [i.e., on] the fortification, and others some to watch and ward as it was convenient." 
It's official, Barack Obama is more economically incompetent than Jimmy Carter. If the misery index were calculated under old methods, "the Index would now be over 25, a record high. It surpasses the old index high of 21.98, which occurred in June 1980, when Jimmy Carter was president.
Most believe the height of the Index along with the Iranian hostage crisis is what caused Carter to lose his re-election bid."
This year’s commencement speakers list of America's top 100 universities shows that liberals still exclude conservatives. Last year, just three speakers were conservative but this year it increases to thirteen; the number of movement conservatives speaking remains 0. Year after year of indoctrinating students with liberal ideologies on college campuses always leads to an uproar from students and professors in the rare event a conservative speaker is chosen.  Bill Clinton will be speaking, but George W. Bush will not.
Teachers' union members, protesting against California Republican legislators, refused to get out at closing time, so the California Highway Patrol arrested the teachers.  This mentality is what is instructing kids in public schools??
Why is President Obama showing disrespect for the Constitution? Apart from questions about his birth certificate (see below), he and his supporters act as though the natural-born citizenship requirement doesn't matter, and wouldn't matter except for his race.
A three-year Oxford University study came up with similar findings: Religion comes naturally, even instinctively, to human beings.  "You can't just pretend it isn't there." An earlier study, indicated that children see the world as designed. 
Republican fiscal conservatives want to slash the U.S. federal deficit in half next year. Liberals and fiscal moderates want to keep the unproductive and unsustainable fiscal crack of the federal government going, but the bottom line is that it is unsustainable due to the trade imbalances of the USA and the huge fiscal deficit which has been spiraling upwards. It is no longer a matter of if economic pain is coming to many individuals, but only a matter of when.
Obama's mother told the U.S. government that she would homeschool her son with American textbooks when they moved to Indonesia. "Dunham, however, broke her pledge. She enrolled the future president in Indonesian schools, where he was registered as a Muslim going by the name 'Barry Soetoro.'" 
What kind of immigration reform does Barack Obama really want? Is this his Trojan horse? Or does he just want to make absurd ad hominems about alligators in moats, and brag about fences that don't exist? 
For the Republican nomination for president, it is Team Mitt -- Romney and his likely supporters Rick Santorum, Chris Christie, and Tim Pawlenty -- versus Team Newt, which consists of Gingrich, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, and Fox News Channel. Which is the stronger team? Newt announced his candidacy today. 
Will gold become the standard of value for the dollar once more? Steve Forbes said to look for that within five years. Until it does, the Federal Reserve will continue to turn the dollar into a Potemkin village.
A liberal Clinton Administration official is already saying that Mitt Romney may defeat Barack Obama because of ... you guessed it ... race. In other words, Dems just keep playing the race card.  Don't liberals get tired of hearing themselves say the same thing??
What does it mean to be an Israeli? An Israeli tells what it's like to live in a country where, any day now, you might know somebody, or know somebody who knows somebody, who gets killed in a terrorist attack.
Feel good AP-Gfk polling as Barack Hussein Obama's approval hits 60%!  The poll was deceitfully skewed in Democrat's favor - Obama's disapproval rating with respect to the economy is above 50%. 
The flood from the Mississippi River ravages the South, but the lamestream media continue to avoid using the term "flood" in headlines and article introductions. See, e.g., "River misses Memphis mark, flows south."
Leak of CIA Station Chief's identity to local media seen as reprisal for unauthorized invasion of Pakistan's sovereignty. Relations with key ally in the War on Terror strained. 
Remember Richard S. Welch?
More evidence that liberals waste many hours a day watching television: Donald Trump's show has suffered a 23% decline in viewership since he began criticizing Obama.  No loss in audience here at Conservapedia!
Given the shamefulness of atheism and its history of mass murder, no reputable college or university in the Western World has ever been foolish enough to offer a degree in atheism/secularism. Instead, atheism was relegated to skulk within academic departments.
Now a California liberal arts college is offering the useless degree of secularism so more of its graduates can stand in California unemployment lines and be saddled with debt they will have a hard time paying back. Perhaps, the major was called "secularism" due to the shamefulness and social stigma of atheism.
At the Republican debate among some presidential candidates, Fox News Channel reporter Juan Williams insisted that candidate Tim Pawlenty answer a "question about what you believe about teaching creationism in the schools. What do you believe, Governor?" Pawlenty: "I believe that should be left up to parents and local school districts and not to states or the federal government." 
Sunday is the special day many feminists dislike: Mother's Day. Unfortunately, motherhood is not something feminists encourage.
The largest number of telephone calls are placed on Mother's Day, and it the second most popular day for going to a restaurant.
In Pakistan, ex-foreign minister calls for president, premier to resign. Pakistan’s ex-foreign minister called for the resignation of President Asif Ali Zardari and his prime minister, saying that a U.S. commando raid on the compound of Osama bin Laden represented a failure of government... While acknowledging they have no direct evidence, U.S. officials have said they doubt that bin Laden could have lived in Abbottabad near a major military academy, without the knowledge of Pakistani army or intelligence. The army has condemned the U.S. raid as a violation of sovereignty. 
"MISURATA, Libya. Military forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi struck the fuel terminal of this rebel-controlled Libyan city early Saturday with ground-to-ground rockets, igniting a fire that threatened the city’s fuel supply. The barrage struck shortly after midnight, when rockets began landing and exploding in several areas of the terminal, officials there said. At least one rocket hit a set of three mammoth tanks, which ruptured and burst into a fireball. The fire settled into a leaping blaze that towered overheard, visible for miles. Its glow illuminated the eastern section of the city throughout the night. Residents woke to a thick, drifting cloud of black smoke." 
A massive Mississippi River flood surpasses the devastation of 1927, causing thousands to flee, but notice how the lamestream media downplay the term "flood".  Has the biblical term "flood" become politically incorrect under secularized language?
The highest ranking candidate for presidential election 2012 to participate in the recent presidential debate was Tim Pawlenty. He apologized for supporting the global warming regulations, but remains low at #10 in our ranking: "For Pawlenty, solid U.S. debate is no game-changer." 
The endless money pit of government-controlled mortgages. In the first three months of this year, Fannie Mae lost $8.7 billion. They are requesting an additional $8.5 billion in funding. The total bailout package of Fannie Mae is nearing $100 billion - the most expensive rescue of any single company. 
UPI reports bin Laden "was initially taken alive but executed at point-blank range on the ground floor of his compound, London's pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat reports. U.S. President Barack Obama announced that bin Laden was killed early Monday during a firefight at a fortified compound near one of Pakistan's elite military academies. The narrative of the assault has evolved...as the Obama administration refuses to release photographic evidence that bin Laden is dead. The narrative provided by the White House says bin Laden was killed apparently on the second or third floor of the compound. 
Professor values: A University of Wisconsin Professor and ex-con Stephen Richards "can be heard encouraging a female student to sign the recall petition even though she thinks she lives outside the district." 
Is the US dollar getting a temporary bounce? Not so fast. Gold and silver declined because exchange officials chased out the speculators. Objective values will still reign; it's only a matter of time.
Obama's self-promotion in connection with bin Laden causes the percentage of voters who think Obama should be reelected to jump to ... only 42%.  On the day bin Laden was killed, writer Hassan Hanizadeh asked whether the body of bin Laden has turned into campaign propaganda for Obama or not. 
- A 9/11 family member speaks about Osama Bin Laden and the shameless effort of Barack Obama to capitalize on his death.
- George W. Bush will not be at Ground Zero today because "Obama withheld credit from people Bush believes deserved it," sources said. 
- China slams US violation of Pakistan's territory.
- “China holds that the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of any country should be respected,” said Jiang Yu, a spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, according to Xinhua news agency. 
- Pakistan blasts 'unauthorized unilateral' raid.  An important ally in the war on terror now wants US troops out after bin Laden raid. 
Osama Bin Laden conceived of a plot to derail trains in New York City, Washington, DC, and Chicago, Illinois, according to fresh insights from the computer media that the Navy SEAL team seized in their raid on his compound. The derailments were to take place on the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
Pastor Gallups declares in the video "Don't your teachers urge you to question everything?" 
The Birth & Death of Biblical Minimalism. 
In Europe, "questions raised about the changing details of [bin Laden's] death sharpened considerably after the White House revealed that he did not fire a weapon, was not armed and did not use a woman as a protective shield."  If he was bin Laden, then why wasn't he captured alive as Saddam Hussein was?
Arab reaction to Osama Bin Laden's death varies between giddy pleasure and cold rage. Some of that rage found expression at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. What diplomatic complications might result? 
Pakistan reacts angrily to tone of U.S. questions The United States is pressing Pakistani authorities for answers about how Osama bin Laden could have lived close to a major military base near Pakistan's capital without the government knowing, two senior U.S. officials said Wednesday. 
Thinking is not an option when it comes to Liberal stupidity; it doesn't even exist. A large amount of negative publicity coupled with the timing of the death of bin Laden may force the editors of DC Comics to rethink having Superman renounce his American citizenship. 
No Senator has even seen the photos of bin Laden. Three Senators were fooled by fake photos. Conservative Senator Kelly Ayotte, whose husband is an Iraq war veteran, says Obama should release the real photos.  (And furthermore, Reuters released photos that were at least as gruesome. So why does Obama hesitate? )
As conservatives expected, Obama conceals the bin Laden photos and refuses to release them, thereby preventing the public from checking the truth of Obama's claims.  The two-day internal review of the photos probably cast doubt on whether it really was bin Laden. On Monday, CIA director Leon Panetta said he thought a photo would be released to the public. 
Treasury Acts to Avoid Default. Secretary Timothy Geithner "will begin to take extraordinary actions Friday to manage the government's finances so it won't default after hitting its borrowing limit on May 16," through "a series of bookkeeping maneuvers..." Fuzzy math. 
"Burials at sea against Islamic rules: scholars." Muslim authorities said Islam prohibits burials at sea like the one Osama bin Laden allegedly received on Monday. The United States claimed that he received Muslim religious rites "but his body was 'eased' into the Arabian Sea so that no one can build a shrine on his grave. 'If it is true that the body was thrown into the sea, then Islam is totally against that,' said Mahmud Azab, an adviser to Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the grand imam of Al-Azhar, the top Sunni Muslim authority." 
"Gas prices set record in Chicago U.S. gasoline prices surged ever closer to the $4-a-gallon threshold in the latest week, placing more pressure on lawmakers to show voters they are working to provide relief at the pump." 
The Obama Administration's claims about bin Laden unravel further: the woman killed was not bin Laden's wife and the stated reason for not capturing bin Laden alive may not have been true either.  Was bin Laden even there?
The government claims it was a "virtually 100% DNA match"; another report said there was "99.9%" certainty it was Osama bin Laden. But real DNA matches are 100%, not "virtually 100%," with certainty of identity of 4 billion-to-one rather than merely 1000-to-1. Why haven't the DNA results been released for independent review?
"Bin Laden was killed years ago," Pakistani premier Benazir Bhutto said in a 2007 interview. In response to a question whether any of the assassins had links with the government of Pakistan, Bhutto said, "Yes but one of them is a very key figure in security, he is a former military officer … and had dealings with Omar Sheikh, the man who murdered Osama bin Laden."  Bhutto later was assassinated in a bomb attack as she was leaving an election rally in Rawalpindi when a gunman shot her in the neck and set off a bomb.
Questions are emerging now from liberals, libertarians, Tea Partiers and even a relative of a 9/11 victim about whether the killing of bin Laden happened as claimed.  Why was bin Laden buried so quickly at sea, in violation of Islamic law? Why wasn't he captured alive, if the reports are true?
Mark Halperin in Time magazine writes, "The polls over the next few weeks are going to be fascinating.... A sizeable number of Americans are just not persuadable towards the Obama side; now we will find out just how big that group is." 
Liberal double standard: despite Republicans humbly crediting Obama, Obama would not do likewise and credit George W. Bush last night. The liberal New York Times complains, "the bump in the polls that George W. Bush received after the capture of Saddam Hussein in 2003 evaporated within months." 
Bin Laden dead. He has been killed, a United States official said Sunday night. The US knew where he was for months, but sent ground troops in to recover the body rather than use a Predator drone. Ayman al-Zawahri, the brains of al Qaeda and bin Laden's chief deputy, remains at large. Bin Laden's death is nearly 10 years after the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.  Bin Laden was killed in a mansion outside a highland town 50 km. north of Islamabad, capital of Pakistan, a U.S. source said on Sunday. 
More trouble in the la-la-land of leftists: The May Day liberal rallies today totaled only a few hundred people in major cities, despite newspaper predictions they would number tens of thousands. "May Day events in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Milwaukee and Madison, Wisconsin were considerably smaller than in past years" observed one report, noting that only "about 300 demonstrators gathered" for a Chicago rally 
"Why do Americans still dislike atheists?"  Answers the lamestream media won't admit: atheists are less charitable, atheists censor Christianity (such as classroom prayer), and there is a high correlation between young mass murderers and atheism.

"Saif Al-Arab Gaddafi, Libya Leader's Son, Killed By NATO Airstrike... Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi survived a NATO airstrike on Saturday night that killed his youngest son Saif al-Arab and three of his grandchildren [under the age of 12], a Libyan government spokesman said." Saif al-Arab was reportedly a 29-year-old civilian who had gone to school in Germany. 
Obama grossly exaggerated the humanitarian threat to justify military action in Libya. The president claimed that intervention was necessary to prevent a “bloodbath’’ ... But Human Rights Watch has released data... revealing that Moammar Khadafy is not deliberately massacring civilians but rather narrowly targeting the armed rebels ...Nor did Khadafy ever threaten civilian massacre in Benghazi, as Obama alleged. The “no mercy’’ warning, of March 17, targeted rebels only, as reported by 'the New York Times, which noted that Libya’s leader promised amnesty ...", writes Prof. Alan J. Kuperman in the Boston Globe.

Give it up, liberals: they desperately resort to the race card to try to shut down questions about whether Obama is a "natural born Citizen" under the constitutional requirement for a president. David Letterman even suggests he does not want Donald Trump back on Letterman's (idiotic) show. 
More evidence that Obama is not fit to be president. Three individuals who were "defendants where the investigation involved an identified link to international terrorism but they were charged with violating other statutes [not directly related to terrorism], including fraud, immigration, drugs, false statements, and general conspiracy charges" have been rewarded by the Obama Adminstration with U.S. citizenship. 
America's young people will be the one's hurt most by Obama's ponzi scheme if it is not ended because they will wind up ultimately paying the bill. Also, there are signs America may face a colossal financial collapse due to Obama's poor economic policies and due to some of the poor policies of prior administrations.
The American public is not buying that the U.S. economy is becoming more healthy and now "A brand new Gallup poll has found that the number of Americans that believe that we are in a [economic] 'depression' is actually larger than the number of Americans that believe that the economy is 'growing'."
Obama's lackluster performance on the economy, his dismal ObamaCare legislation and his unpopular war in Libya continue to hammer down his approval ratings. Although he carried Pennsylvania easily in 2008, Obama's popularity has now plummeted there. 
With each passing day, Obama more and more appears to be Jimmy Carter 2.0
Courtesy of Obama and his liberal supporters, just 21% of likely voters believe the country is headed in the right direction: 
The American Thinker declares:
|“||It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Obama wasn't hiding anything that is on the present long form birth certificate. The evidence indicates that what he is hiding is that his long form birth certificate may not be genuine.||”|
Oil companies are making more money and less fuel Refiners including Exxon Mobil are raking in profits while producing less gasoline and diesel in the U.S. than usual for this time of year. They're also exporting more to foreign countries. With oil prices rising, that makes for sticker shock at the pump. Gasoline prices are skyrocketing — and so are oil company profits. 
The surprisingly released Obama birth certificate reportedly raises more questions than it answers, ranging whether a child born to a foreign parent can be president to oddities in the document itself. 
The General People’s Congress (GPC), which is the ruling Yemeni party of President Saleh, is expected to refuse the president’s resignation as stipulated by the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) initiative. President Saleh will be obliged to step down within 30 days after his party and the opposition Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) have signed the agreement. The Gulf initiative was proposed by the six nations of the GCC as a means of resolving the long-standing political crisis in Yemen. Three months of popular demonstrations demanding the removal of President Saleh’s 33-year old regime have brought the country’s political and economic administrations to a standstill. 
The corrupted field of science claims another: CDC vaccine scientist Poul Thorsen indicted by the Department of Justice for stealing $1 million in grant money. Thorsen headed up the "Denmark Study" that many claim disproved any link between autism and vaccines.  
Will Obama-supporters be successful in playing the race card to try to censor criticism of Obama? Some suggest that "birtherism is just dog-whistled racism"!  Most liberals didn't mind the greater and harsher criticism of George W. Bush.
"If a federal judge provides a determination that a person with dual citizenship is a natural born citizen, then this issue is solved," observed attorney Orly Taitz. "But this issue has to be solved." After reviewing the birth certificate released yesterday, Taitz said that Obama may hold dual citizenship in the United States, Kenya, Great Britain and Indonesia, and questions whether someone with dual citizenship can legally be president. 
"It was a profoundly low and debasing moment in American political life," bemoans the New York Times about Obama's attempt Wednesday to prove he was born an American citizen by releasing his birth certificate.  One problem: children born to foreigners -- such as diplomats or a foreign student as now confirmed by Obama's birth certificate -- are not necessarily American citizens.

Economy weakens and Unemployment claims rise; gas prices average $3.88 a gal, up 30 cents from a month ago.  60% of Independents hit hard by rising gas prices say they definitely will not support Obama's reelection.

When it comes to collective bargaining reform and labor union angst, Democrats and their liberal media allies were happy to smear Republicans as killing the middle class. It will be interesting to watch them spin the actions of Massachusetts liberals enacting the same reforms. 
Among those still lucky to be employed in Obama's America, some do not appreciate the president's condescending tone toward their industry. 
Gas has shot up in price, and you can thank the left in general - and Obama in particular - for it.  And don't forget, every single delivery by air, by rail, by truck; every job in the country; every house built; all the mail that's delivered; all the food produced and stocked in our stores...all of it depends on whether or not your gas tank is filled.
Obama's enormous pork filled stimulus package that produced little to nothing and further buried America in debt, his failure to pull out of Treasury draining wars, his general lack of restraint in spending taxpayer dollars, his tacit endorsement of Ben Bernanke debasing the U.S. dollar and causing additional inflation through the colossal printing of additional U.S. currency, his various job killing policies and his pro-abortion blood stained hands is more than enough to boot him out of office in 2012.
Conservatives need to hammer home the fundamental issues of Obama's incompetency, his financial recklessness and his general lack of character that disqualify Obama from being re-elected and not bring up issues like demanding Obama's kindergarten records.
There isn't much difference between the political philosophies of Barack Obama and the communist dictator Pol Pot, who started out as a mild-manner professor who didn't like capitalism, and ended with "a mountain of skulls".

Barack Obama's complete birth certificate shows his parents' nationalities and ages,  unlike the version he released when campaigning for president.  Was a child born in 1961 to a foreign parent visiting the United States automatically an American citizen?
Obama promised to be a very transparent public official in his campaign, but failed to produce a convincing explanation of why it took him so long. 
Two million dollars in legal fees protecting its release, the White House finally shows off Barack Hussein Obama's certificate of live birth.  America can thank Donald Trump for bringing this to a boiling point.
UK Foreign Secretary William Hague backs Syria reforms. It is "not too late" for Syrian president Bashar Assad to abandon brutal repression of his people, Hague insisted today. Mr Hague said it was still possible that the British-educated leader could follow through on democratic and civil liberty reforms he has promised. 
"Syria's ambassador to the United Nations rejected Tuesday a call for an independent investigation into the killings of hundreds of demonstrators by government forces." Bashar Jaafari declared that "Syria has a government, has a state. We can undertake any investigation by our own selves, with full transparency. We have nothing to hide. We regret what is going on, but you should also acknowledge that this unrest and riots, in some of their aspects, have hidden agendas." 
The Obama administration explains its reluctance to criticize Bashar al-Assad because "he'll react if he believes he is being lumped in with brutal dictators." 
Rush Limbaugh relishes bringing up Obama's lack of invitation to the upcoming British royal wedding and also relishes mentioning that Obama's poor gift-giving skills may have contributed to his recent "royal snub." 
Louisiana resumes its legislative session and will consider a bill to require the president to show his birth certificate to qualify for the ballot. Governor Bobby Jindal is unlikely to cave into the liberals as Arizona Governor Jan Brewer did in vetoing a similar Arizona bill. 
Syria Reveals Moral Bankruptcy Of Obama’s Humanitarian Interventionism Doctrine
On Friday 75 people were gunned down by the Syrian regime. If a humanitarian crisis created by government crackdowns against a civilian uprising was justification for President Obama's Libyan intervention, then why doesn’t the same apply to Syria? Are Syrians lives worth less than Libyans? Where’s the “humanitarianism” in that? 
- Only 27% of Americans support Obama's War in Libya. 
- Only 31% of Democrats support Obama' Libyan action;
- 28% of Democrats oppose Obama's humanitarian intervention.
- A record 49 percent disapprove of Obama’s handling of Afghanistan,
up 8 points since January. 
- Those who strongly disapprove outnumber strong approvers nearly 2-1.
The state of Illinois, which brought America the economic idiocy of Obama, now brings economic idiocy to a whole new level. Democrat Jesse Jackson Jr., the U.S. Representative for Illinois's 2nd congressional district, blames the iPad for killing jobs!
Politics for the last 400 years has increasingly become subservient to economics and this trend has accelerated in the last two decades. The economic ignorance of liberals in America is increasingly being constrained by economic forces such as the many problems associated with having a high Federal debt and foreign competition.
A leading British newspaper cites statistics indicating that the occupation of philosopher is one of the least stressful jobs. Given that many philosophers are non-Christians, there is probably a very low expectation for them to say anything meaningful which makes their jobs far less stressful.
After the Rev. Franklin Graham questions Obama's birthplace, the White House feels the need to hit back.  The President can end the story but chooses not to. It all smacks of liberal desperation.
Year after year of declining fortunes is taking a toll on the New York Times. The Huffington Post has poached away yet another high-profile staffer.  Also, the Times rushed to include a picture of Barack Hussein Obama in their paper. The only problem, it was a fictitious magazine cover with the Barack headline "I sing in the shower." 
Donald Trump is telling the truth about Hollywood actors too: he observes that Robert De Niro is "not the brightest bulb on the planet." Trump says he likes De Niro's acting but after seeing "him doing interviews and various other things, we're not dealing with Albert Einstein."
