By Doug Powers  •  January 29, 2011 08:37 AM

**Written by Doug Powers When I first heard that President Obama was going to address the people of Chicago by radio, I figured it would be to apologize for publicly predicting that the Bears would beat the Packers, but no, it was only to give a semi-endorsement to Rahm Emanuel: Rahm Emanuel’s campaign on Friday […]

An iconic Egyptian protest image reminiscent of Tiananmen Square, via the Telegraph… And another iconic photo via Twitpic (click on photo for full size)… They’re calling it “Angry Friday.” Protesters in Egypt may have been cut off from the Internet, but information will always find a way to free itself.

Transcript, President Ronald Reagan, Jan. 28, 1986: Ladies and gentlemen, I’d planned to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union, but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans.

Former Time magazine leftist-turned-VP Joe Biden flack Jay Carney has a new job. Or a new title, anyway. He’s replacing Robert Gibbs as White House press secretary.

Time Mag: Obama Hearts Reagan

By Doug Powers  •  January 27, 2011 04:23 PM

**Written by Doug Powers After Obama won the election in 2008, Time Magazine, noticing that “New Deal II: This Time It’s Personal” was about to be released nationally, rode the wave: What a difference two years, some horrendously expensive spending (sorry: “targeted investment”) shams and pork orgies accompanied by the inevitable high unemployment, a sputtering […]

Sheila Jackson Lee: My Constituents are Ill-Informed

By Doug Powers  •  January 27, 2011 01:41 PM

Even so, it’s hard to argue with Sheila Jackson Lee (D-umb Constituents) when she makes […]

In November 2008, the Ohio state inspector general concluded that Helen Jones-Kelley, then-director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, had no legitimate reasons to check state computer systems for confidential information on Joe Wurzelbacher — the citizen who audaciously called out Barack Obama’s wealth redistribution agenda in a viral campaign trail exchange […]

It Was Good Ta Be Da Queen: Nancy Pelosi’s ‘Air Force Fun’ Update

**Written by Doug Powers Nancy Pelosi’s in-flight perks as Speaker almost make Barbra Streisand’s backstage demands look modest (I can’t believe Nancy never thought of rose petals in the toilet, but maybe she did). The bills for Pelosi’s air escapades have been piling up for quite a while, and some of the final expenses from […]

Obama jobs death toll: Coal, oil, gas workers on the chopping block; Update: Abbott Labs slashes 1,900

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2011 09:52 AM

Grim reaper photoshop credit: Manly Rash President Obama used the word “jobs” 31 times in his State of the Union Address. Did you add “-killing” under your breath every time he read the word on his teleprompter? Me, too. While Obama was out on the trail filming 2012 campaign ads on the taxpayer’s dime, workers […]
