Capitol Hill Update: Obama's Czar Van Jones thinks "Bush caused 9-11"

It was unanimous amongst liberal and conservative talking heads on Bret Baier's Fox News show last evening, that Barack Obama's Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones, will be toast by, or at the very least, should be toast by Monday.  On Sean Hannity's show last night, a former staffer of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he should voluntarily resign.  What did this "wack job," as one of the talking heads described him, do to deserve this prediction?   

Saying "no" increases Republican mojo with voters

Slowly but surely, it seems that the Republicans are getting a little bit of their mojo back.

How?  Simply by saying "no".  Because, when it comes to Obama's agenda, it seems that saying "no" is enough for Republicans to gain more support of the American people.

Some recent polling from Rasmussen tells the tale.

By a long-shot, the economy is the number one issue on people's minds, and they don't think Obama and the Democrat's are doing such a good job dealing with it.

Overwhelmingly, they think the government is spending (and borrowing) way too much money, and the national deficit and debt are looming larger in voter's minds.  Seventy-one percent agree that Obama's policies have driven up the deficit.

Senate Republicans should put Democrats on the spot with Sotomayor

With a newly minted sixty-vote Democrat majority in the US Senate, the approval of the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court is all but assured.
But what isn't assured is that it won't cost the Democrats something before all the dust settles.  And that's up to the Republicans.

Do they have what it takes to make her positions on hot-button issues so toxic that the Democrats from "purple" or "red" states who support her will find themselves in political hot water back home?
Her record represents just such an opportunity.

Before becoming a judge, Sotomayor was a leader of the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (PRLDEF), even serving as the Chairman of its Litigation Committee.  And there we get a glimpse of some of the issues she was willing to lend her support to.

Democrat leaders' disrespect for U.S. military

Just what is it in the DNA of many of the leaders of the Democrat Party which cause them to have such a distain for the United States military and for us combat war veterans?    

The most recent example of this was yesterday during a hearing being conducted by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, left-wing Senator Barbara Boxer, Democrat from California.  She had testifying before her committee, Brigadier General Michael Walsh, from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.   

General Walsh began his answer to one of Barbara Boxer's questions by saying:  "Ma'am."  She immediately cut him off saying:  "You know, do me a favor.  Could you say 'senator' instead of 'ma'am?'  It's just a thing, I worked so hard to get that title, so I'd appreciate it, yes, thank you."    

What makes Boxer's contemptible remarks and her dressing down the Army general so disgusting is that every military person from the private, sailor and airman to the highest general and admiral treats everyone with respect by addressing them as either "sir" or "ma'am" (as in madam.)   

Indeed, during the very same day as Barbara Boxer's committee hearing, two Navy officials, including 3-star admiral Bernard McCullough, frequently referred to Senator Roger Wicker, Republican from Mississippi as "sir" and Senator Wicker did not get bent all out of shape as Boxer did.

Only Fools Rush In

nly Fools Rush In

We were blind sided by 9/11, Bush sounded the alarm, and we were all to willing to surrender a significant slice of individual freedom. With bogus wire taps and illegal confiscations of personal liberty, via the Patriot Act, the attacks became politically lucrative for the 43rd President. I don't subscribe to the whole “ It was an inside job...” theory, but just take a look at the economic hysteria that Bush handed off to Obama, he put the ball right in his hands. I guess the former President was so preoccupied solidifying this hoax, that is the war on terror, that he was powerless to stop the impending economic nose dive.


Well, thanks to the many ignorant twenty-somethings who elected him because of his Hollywood “rock star” image and smooth talk, we now have a far left/liberal/socialist/secular progressive running this country of the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, Barney Frank, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Cindy Sheehan.What these young voters do not seem to understand is that the modern Democratic Party is not the same party that was once familiar to their parents and grandparents.When Lyndon Johnson took office in 1963, in order
