1. Why Not Barack Obama?

Last evening, the President of Chile called out by name two world leaders for special thanks for their support — British Prime Minister David Cameron and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.Barack Obama’s name was not mentioned.Barack Obama, purported leader of the free world, resides in the Western Hemisphere with the Chilean President and is supposedly restoring American greatness in the world.What has Barack Obama done or not done to merit the President of the United States of America not being thanked by the President of Chile? A great deal, I’m sure.But our thin skinned leader is probably not upset. Given his contempt of mining, Great Britain, and Israel, I’m sure he has no problem at all not being mentioned by name.Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. Taxpayers are Against Earmarks – Will Elites Listen?

Taxpayers are against earmarks because they waste money and corrupt the political process. It is that simple.House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) authored an excellent Op Ed in Politico attacking earmarks. Cantor writes today that in March Republicans imposed an earmark moratorium for this Congress — a moratorium that expires on January 3, 2011. Cantor is showing some leadership by calling for the elimination of earmarks in the next Congress.Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. Congressman Charlie Wilson Is A Wife Beater

Good job by Mike Flynn and Big Government uncovering this absolutely horrendous court filing detailing the abuse Congressman Charlie Wilson (D-OH) inflicted on his ex-wife — much of which he admitted to doing in a deposition. Clara Wilson went so far as to use the term “extreme cruelty” to describe what Charlie Wilson put her through.Wilson admitted in his deposition to grabbing his wife by the neck and shaking her.According to the court document, Wilson “slammed [his wife] into the refrigerator.” Wilson admitted in his deposition that early in his marriage he “kicked and struck” his wife and “accused her of adultery.”Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. Democrats Are Funding Their Campaigns With Money Taken From Foreign Nationals

Do you remember the game of Whack-A-Mole? You know, the game you play on the boardwalk or at the county fair where, for a couple of bucks, you can win a stuffed toy for ‘whacking’ these stupid cartoonish-looking moles on the head with a mallet when they pop up?Well, this one is almost too easy.Last week, when the White House and DNC launched their desperate campaign to smear the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, alleging the federation is funding GOP campaigns with “foreign money,” our immediate reaction was:Do they really want to go down this road? Really?Are those who are really launching the attacks going to expose themselves this easily?Please click here for the rest of the post.

5. Tolerance and Diversity: Teaching Girls That Misogyny And Beatings Are An Honor

“Allah honored wives by instating the punishment of beatings.” So said Cleric Sa’d Arafat earlier this year. Last month, a Wellesley, Massachusetts public school took a trip to a mosque, where the school children were taught to pray to that same Allah.Well, except for the icky girls. Cooties, and all. They were not allowed to take part in the “tolerance” indoctrination. Have to teach these girls how to show respect! Please click here for the rest of the post.

6. If Democrat Marcy Kaptur can’t tell the difference between Islamic terrorists and our Founding Fathers…

Just one question for the voters in Toledo, Ohio:Which would you rather have:A Congressman who has dressed up for war re-enactments, OR…A Congresswomen that compares terrorists to America’s Founding Fathers?It’s a pretty simple question, but it is the choice you have to make on November 2nd.Please click here for the rest of the post.

7. Video: Dem Majority Leader Ducks Question on Taxes

When Speaker Nancy Pelosi cast the deciding vote to adjourn the House until after the midterm elections, it was a vote for tax increases. As we reported on HUMAN EVENTS, there were 39 Democrats ready and willing to vote to maintain the tax rates at the current levels. But Pelosi balked at such a choice, thus shielding her party from a tough vote in an election cycle where news grows worse for the Democrats by the day. Effective on January 1, 2011, every income bracket, not just the much-maligned “rich,” will see their taxes go sky high.The dirty little secret is that Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team could call the House back into session tomorrow in order to ensure that taxes are not raised. But will they?Please click here for the rest of the post.
