Bruce Bawer: What Kind of People Could Give a Nobel Peace Prize to Obama?

"In America, after all, we’re used to the idea that an award actually represents some kind of accomplishment. Even Obama lovers wondered: what kind of country would give out an award of such (alleged) importance to a chief executive who had just taken office and had yet to prove himself in any meaningful way?"

Ken Klukowski: Blackwell Calls for Gen. Casey to be Fired

"Sec. Blackwell’s beef with Gen. Casey is that in the aftermath of the Ft. Hood shooting, Casey emphasized the need for diversity and that this must shape how the Army responds, because if diversity suffered it would be an even worse tragedy."

Ken Blackwell: Will Time Magazine Apologize to Glenn Beck?

"Well, now it turns out that Kentucky investigators have concluded that poor Sparkman committed suicide, faking his own death in order to let unnamed beneficiaries collect on a recently-contracted life insurance policy. How very sad for Sparkman and those whom he loved. And how sad for our country when a leading news organ like TIME races to conclude that anti-tax protesters likely had a hand in the unfortunate man’s death."


"One of the most rabid propagandists of the global warming theocracy is George Monbiot. Even he, albeit begrudgingly, concedes he should have been more skeptical. Even he now admits the science needs to be rechecked and fully vetted.

“'It’s no use pretending that this isn’t a major blow. The emails extracted by a hacker from the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia could scarcely be more damaging. I am now convinced that they are genuine, and I’m dismayed and deeply shaken by them.'”

Ron Rosenbaum: The Disgusting Use of “Denialist” by Warming Advocates Trivializes the Holocaust

"I think someone should keep track of those journalists who still use the term 'denialist' and make their trivialization of the holocaust a continuing issue. Don’t let them get away with this shameful tactic without exposure of their repulsive tactic. Holocaust denial can be seen in someways as adding evil to evil by adding insult to injury. Trivializing the evil of holocaust denial is an evil in itself."

David Forsmark: Nothing to See Here, Folks. The Lamestream Media on Climategate

"Remember the good old days when people used to make jokes comparing the New York Times to Pravda, and it was considered an insult to the New York Times? Now, the publishers of The Pentagon Papers have suddenly decided that the 'public’s right to know' does not extend to things that damage the editorial page’s political stance, while Russian TV hosts important public debates.

"During the Bush Administration, it was Pulitzer material to expose anti-terrorism methods and operations including:

* The Terrorist Surveillance Program
* How we tracked terrorist financing
* Exposing secret terrorist holding facilities in allied countries
* Exaggerated accounts of terrorist interrogation

"But when it comes to the hundreds of emails exposing the 'scientists' who are manufacturing fraudulent data that is being used to seize control of the U.S.—and world—economy in the name of 'global warming,' the New York Times is suddenly queasy about exposing documents that were 'never intended for the public eye.'"

The New York Times pretends to discover the word "ethics."

Kathy Shaidle: Media Matters denounces global warming ‘false claims’ (no, not those ones…)

"In the wake of Climaquiddick, Media Matters’ smug certainty now sounds pretty pathetic. Especially since no less a personage than Tim Flannery, Chairman of the Copenhagen Climate Council and long-time global warming alarmist, admitted on Tuesday that Steyn was right:

'When we come to the last few years when we haven’t seen a continuation of that (warming) trend we don’t understand all of the factors that create earth’s climate…We just don’t understand the way the whole system works… See, these people work with models, computer modelling. So when the computer modelling and the real world data disagree you’ve got a very interesting problem… Sure for the last 10 years we’ve gone through a slight cooling trend.'"

London Telegraph: Climate change: this is the worst scientific scandal of our generation

"But the question which inevitably arises from this systematic refusal to release their data is – what is it that these scientists seem so anxious to hide? The second and most shocking revelation of the leaked documents is how they show the scientists trying to manipulate data through their tortuous computer programmes, always to point in only the one desired direction – to lower past temperatures and to 'adjust' recent temperatures upwards, in order to convey the impression of an accelerated warming. This comes up so often (not least in the documents relating to computer data in the Harry Read Me file) that it becomes the most disturbing single element of the entire story. This is what Mr McIntyre caught Dr Hansen doing with his GISS temperature record last year (after which Hansen was forced to revise his record), and two further shocking examples have now come to light from Australia and New Zealand."

As a result, the recommendations will not save lives. However, these recommendations will save the government money."

Think What We Think...Or Else: Thought Control on the American Campus

London Telegraph: Climategate: University of East Anglia U-turn in climate change row

"David Holland, who describes himself as a David taking on the Goliath that is the prevailing scientific consensus, is seeking prosecutions against some of Britain's most eminent academics for allegedly holding back information in breach of disclosure laws."

Jennifer Rubin : Holding Holder Accountable --The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights steps up.

"Attorney General Eric Holder has so far ignored requests for relevant documents despite a statutory mandate to cooperate. Notes Commissioner Peter Kirsanow, 'We thought we had made a very reasonable information request. We got a cursory response, and we've continued to be stiffed.' Hans von Spakovsky--a former counsel to the assistant attorney general for civil rights--thinks Holder must have 'something to hide.'"

Mike Adams: ClimateGate scandal demonstrates intellectual protectionism of modern scientists

"The inconvenient release of private email conversations among climate change scientists has been a boon for climate change skeptics. What emerges from the leaked emails is a depiction of a group of scientists who practice 'intellectual protectionism' -- meaning they know they're right and they'll do anything to protect their beliefs, even if it means hiding or manipulating data.

"Sound familiar? Scientists in the pharmaceutical industry have been practicing this for decades. If you think the ClimateGate emails are revealing, just imagine what kind of similar emails are flying around between Big Pharma scientists who routinely manipulate study data and commit scientific fraud in the name of medicine. Time and time again, we see revelations of manipulated clinical trials where data was intentionally distorted in order to make a dangerous, useless drug appear to be safe and effective.

"What ClimateGate scientists and Big Pharma scientists have in common is that they have both abandoned the core principles of good science in their quest to be right. Rather than asking questions of nature and humbly listening to the answers provided by the data, these scientists have staked out a position and decided to defend that position at all costs -- even if it requires hiding or distorting data!

"That approach is entirely unscientific, of course. In my mind, it now puts much of the recent global warming science in the same category as Big Pharma's research: Pure quackery."

Daniel Greenfield: Taxed for Living

"ObamaCare’s mandatory health insurance or fine helps pioneer the notion that people should be taxed just for being alive. In his interview with George Stephanopoulos, Obama called his health care tax a fine. Which would then mean that the United States government is now fining people for living."

Judi McLeod: “Party Crashers” had five-year relationship with Obama before state dinner

"Obama could end the 'party crasher' goose chase for White House Secret Service in a proverbial New York Minute by coming clean on his almost 5-year-old social/political relationship with Tareq and Michaele Salahi."

Wake Up America: Doom And Gloom For Dems In 2010

"If the Fed's projections are right, the public is going to be very angry next year -- at big business and at the elected officials who have spent trillions of dollars without putting the country fully back to work. Lou Dobbs, the voice of populist anger, may become the nation's hottest politician. President Obama, who has struggled to find a centrist consensus for economic policies, may be tossed like a cork on a stormy sea."

Taylor Harris: Racial pawns in the battle for same-sex marriage

"Plus, the 'black guilt' tactic doesn't work. If gay marriage were put to a popular vote in the District (where 55 percent of residents are African American) and failed, blacks would again take the brunt of criticism from gay rights activists. Yet no one is talking about blacks' 'understanding' since same-sex marriage was voted down this month in Maine, because no one is even sure whether black people live there.

"Maine is the 31st state in which a majority of voters have chosen to uphold the traditional definition of marriage. There aren't enough black people in America to hold responsible for all of those outcomes -- we're only 12.8 percent of the population.

"The refrain will eventually have to change to pinpoint white evangelicals, 77 percent of whom oppose same-sex marriage. And here is the crux of the problem, the point at which we can't deny the separate and unequal treatment of blacks: What race-based fire can activists put under white Americans who refuse a new definition of marriage? None.

"At best, the message to black Americans is one of skewed motivation: You were once treated as secondclass citizens. You should feel flattered by the two movements' similarities and compelled to join the fight. At worst, the message is insulting. In a recent column on same-sex marriage and those who would play the race card, the Boston Globe's Jeff Jacoby summed up the linkage as: 'For if opposing same-sex marriage is like opposing civil rights, then voters who backed Proposition 8 are no better than racists, the moral equivalent of those who turned the fire hoses on blacks in Birmingham in 1963.'

"I'm sorry, Julian. I wasn't there with you in 1963 to fight, but I still can't be your George Wallace today."

From an email: WW II Battleship sailor tells Obama to shape up or ship out!

This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.

Dear President Obama,

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don't believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos'n Mate. Now I live in a "rest home" located on the western end of Pearl Harbor, allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish. I can't figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like: "We're no longer a Christian nation"; "America is arrogant" - (Your wife even announced to the world,"America is mean- spirited." Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)

I'd say shame on the both of you, but I don't think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said, "America hasn't lived up to her ideals." Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn't mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don't think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man. Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don't, I'll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue. You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don't want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts, who was putting up a fight? You don't mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don't want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you're the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you're not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you're thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.

You're not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That's not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.

And I sure as hell don't want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.

Harold B. Estes

When a 95 year old hero of the "the Greatest Generation" stands up and speaks out like this, I think we owe it to him to send his words to as many Americans as we can. Please pass it on.
