Raising the topic of more viable parties in American politics is an awful lot like speculating about a cure for the common cold. It would seem inevitable, and do so much good. It’s also something of a head-shaking lost cause. But if New York Mayor Michael “Nancy Nanny” Bloomberg thinks he can pry gulpish-sized sodas from the fleshy hands of millions of overweight people in his city, envisioning an American political system with more than organized Democrats and well-heeled Republicans isn’t entirely ridiculous.

Remarks by the President to the National Council of La Raza(FLASHBACK)

June 15, 2012 Leave a comment

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you! Thank you so much. (Applause.) What an extraordinary crowd. Thank you. Please have a seat.

It is good to be back with NCLR. (Applause.) It is good to see all of you.

Right off the bat, I should thank you because I have poached quite a few of your alumni to work in my administration. (Laughter.) They’re all doing outstanding work. Raul Yzaguirre, my ambassador to the Dominican Republic — (applause) — Latinos serving at every level of my administration. We’ve got young people right out of college in the White House. We’ve got the first Latina Cabinet Secretary in history, Hilda Solis. (Applause.) So we couldn’t be prouder of the work that so many folks who’ve been engaged with La Raza before, the handiwork that they’re doing with our administration.

Warriors and wimps in the GOP

June 15, 2012 2 comments

The Republican Party in 2012 faces two challenges: how to replace Barack Obama, and how to steer the nation back to constitutional government. The two are related goals, but not the same. We saw in 1968 the election of Richard Nixon – and in 1969, Nixon created the EPA.Mitt Romney - CaricatureMitt Romney – C

Mitt Romney can provide that restorative leadership if he chooses, but what about the leadership deficit in our 50 states? Has the Republican Party at the local level produced a generation of leaders, or a generation of wimps?

A mistake made in 1980 was in thinking that having Ronald Reagan in the White House meant a total reversal of the socialist tide of the previous 50 years. Conservatives neglected state and local government, and the left continued its march toward the nanny state.

Was communist mentor intimate with Obama’s mother?

June 15, 2012 11 comments

NEW YORK – Did Barack Obama’s mother pose nude for communist poet and journalist Frank Marshall Davis?

Did Obama build his political career on a fairy tale that his father was a Kenyan who grew up herding goats?

Was Obama’s goal in writing his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” to misdirect Americans away from a deeply disturbing family background and a Marxist political foundation?

These are questions filmmaker Joel Gilbert poses in the full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father,” which argues Frank Marshall Davis is the president’s biological father, not the Kenyan Barack Obama.

The lead investigator for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse – which already has found probable cause that Barack Obama’s publicly released birth certificate is a forgery – says any Hawaii documentation for Obama’s birth that exists would probably would be of little value.

Mike Zullo, a retired New Jersey detective now heading Arpaio’s volunteer investigative team, explained in an interview that at the time of Obama’s birth during the state’s early years, Hawaii birth documentation routinely was purchased by foreigners for children not born in the state.
