Every price increase of just a dime per gallon of gasoline at the pump extracts approximately $5 billion from the pockets of U.S. consumers over the course of a year.
On top of killing family budgets, with a dollar per gallon jump at the pumps picking our pockets of $50 billion per year, there is on the macro level an inverse relationship between the price of oil and the overall health of the economy — oil price hikes deliver less job growth, less demand for labor, more unemployment, more poverty, more inequality, more inflation, lower real income increases, and smaller advances in the standard of living. more »
There are among the population of the country Barack Obama has been chosen to lead those who have experienced firsthand the iron fist of a dictatorial government and who have survived the bloodshed that resulted. Tens of millions died during the past century under dictators. Deep within their psyche, these survivors are extraordinarily attuned to those factors that gave rise to the devastation when dictators have their way.
They know that the first step along this path is the emergence of a leader willing to do or say anything to promote a destructive and failed political philosophy and to achieve power by manipulating the emotions, fears, and prejudices of the people. But above all, they are mindful that only by exposing those who are determined to undermine their society, without hesitation or fear, can their nation be saved.
Therefore, on behalf of those of us who have live through the worst of times, and based upon the president’s words and deeds, it must be stated that Mr. Obama is a liar and a demagogue. more »

Revised numbers from the Labor Department show negative job growth during June 2010. For each job opening, there were five persons looking for work, and 300,000 fewer workers were hired in June than in May. The ride down continues.
Meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Geithner, erstwhile cheerleader for the Obama economic team, announces that unemployment rates could rise “for a couple of months.” “Of course we want to do what we can,” says Geithner, but what we’re doing is just not working. more »

A couple of weeks ago, Sarah Palin suggested that President Obama lacked the requisite “cojones” to stand up for border security. She should have waited.
If she had, she would have seen that President Obama’s lack of cojones extends far beyond border security — it extends to our national security more broadly. President Obama, simply put, has no cojones when it comes to defending and protecting this nation from threats at home and abroad. His leadership style is more waxed chest and eyebrow trim than alpha male; he’s our first metrosexual president, an elitist who believes that sweet-talking and willful blindness to the nature of our enemies are a recipe for a success. more »
In what can only be described as a partisan, pro-Obama puff piece, The New York Times has now proclaimed on its Economix Blog that tax increases are the best way to “stimulate” our economy and help America reach “fiscal sustainability”:
The single biggest step our government could take this year to address the structural deficit would be to let the tax cuts expire. And a credible commitment to long-term fiscal sustainability should reduce interest rates today, helping to stimulate the economy.
The “gift” of criminal illegal immigrants keeps on giving. This is an outrage of massive proportions. Obama must seal the BORDER! Congress must ACT NOW to protect the American people! This kind of travesty cannot continue.

Police in Williamsburg, Va., have arrested a juvenile, whose name is being withheld due to his age for repeatedly raping a 6-year-old girl. His arrest comes after two others, Tito Guirao-Aguilar, 39, and Samuel Eli Jacobo-Guirao, 20, were apprehended for victimizing the girl.
Guirao-Aguilar has been charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery of a person under the age of 13, and Jacobo-Guirao is charged with one count of rape of a person under the age of 13 and two counts of aggravated sexual battery of a person under 13.
Both men are being held in the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail without bond. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has also placed a hold on them. more »
A government report released today reveals that the Obama administration plans to drastically cut America’s nuclear arsenal by up to 40%. These massive reductions in the US nuclear stockpiles are to be implemented by the year 2021.
The news has gone from bad to worse regarding Obama’s desire to eliminate all US nuclear weapons. Last week I highlighted the Suicidal-in-Chief’s desire to drastically undermine America’s nuclear defense and strike capabilities is detailed in the president’s New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New-START) with Russia, that he signed in April of 2010. Today these ominous developments have come to light.
These enormous reductions are the next step in President Barack Obama’s reckless path to “eliminate all nuclear weapons.” The US now has about 5,113 nuclear warheads but Obama wants to reduce that number to around 3,000. more »
Barack Hussein Obama is not only the most radical, incompetent, and leftist president we’ve ever had, but he is also one of the most dangerous. His unilateral approach to drastically reduce America’s nuclear missiles arsenal and abandon key missile defense capabilities both in Europe and at home, are not just criminally reckless, but downright suicidal.
The latest attempt by Obama to destroy America’s nuclear defense and strike capabilities is detailed in the president’s New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New-START) with Russia, that he signed in April of 2010.
Mitt Romney concludes that “New-START gives Russia a massive nuclear weapon advantage over the United States.” The various provisions of this nuclear weapons “treaty” will not only undermine America’s nuclear capabilities, but also prevent America from properly developing its arsenal while giving Russia an overwhelming and unfair advantage. According to Mitt, the New-START agreement: more »
Yesterday, Michelle Malkin issued a call to her blog readers to help create new NASA logos to “mock Team Obama’s Muslim-pandering makeover of the space program.” Some of the best logos submitted can be seen below.
The logo makeover contest was in response to the latest “Muslim friendly” NASA policies that Obama has foisted on America’s space exploration agency. Yes, this is no joke! Barack Hussein Obama has designated NASA’s new mission to “engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science.”
This information was revealed by NASA’s new Administrator Charles Bolden (appointed by Obama) in a recent interview with Al Jazeera. Bolden emphasized that strengthening ties with Muslim countries “was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.” more »

As former President Ronald Reagan might have said, “Obama, there you go again.”
The current occupant of the White House claims to know how to create jobs. He claims jobs have been created. But so far the score is Great Obama Depression 2.2 million lost jobs, Obama 0 — a blowout.
Obama is as hopeless, helpless, clueless and bankrupt of good ideas as the manager of the Chicago Cubs in late September. This “community organizer” knows as much about private-sector jobs as Pamela Anderson knows about nuclear physics.
It’s time to call Obama what he is: The Great Jobs Killer. With his massive spending and tax hikes — rewarding big government and big unions, while punishing taxpayers and business owners — Obama has killed jobs, he has killed motivation to create new jobs, he has killed the motivation to invest in new businesses, or expand old ones. With all this killing, Obama should be given the top spot on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. more »

Another campaign is on the way in Arizona to wake the country to the financial disaster and economic nightmare Obama is foisting on America’s future. A very large billboard ad created by an anonymous advertiser shows President Obama’s face overlaid on a mock U.S. $100,000,000,000,000 (100 TRILLION dollars) bill with the message “But Who Will Pay the Piper?”
The powerful advertisement easily makes the point. It is us, our children, and grand-children, the American people and taxpayers, who will have to make the enormous sacrifices to pay down this astronomical debt made that much worse by Obama and the Democrat Congress in the last year and a half. more »

For the past few decades, members of both political parties have pursued drastic cuts in America’s defense infrastructure, all under the guise of peacetime “guns-to-butter” policies designed to increase social spending at the expense of military strength. But to date, no administration has left America without the basic tools it needed to meet the fundamental historic test of national security — the ability to execute two major wars in different theatres of deployment simultaneously.
Barack Obama is poised to be the first president to leave America at the mercy of its enemies. President Obama’s recent decision to begin announcing once-secret U.S. missile tests and satellite launches is just the first of many subversive acts carried out by the Obama administration against America’s defense. more »

The Obama administration is poised to ban offshore oil drilling on the outer continental shelf until 2012 or beyond. Meanwhile, Russia is making a bold strategic leap to begin drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. While the United States attempts to shift gears to alternative fuels to battle the purported evils of carbon emissions, Russia will erect oil derricks off the Cuban coast. more »

They won’t call what they’re doing disarmament, of course. We will still have a couple of thousand nuclear weapons once Obama is through cutting them.
But what the Obama administration is discussing internally with regard to our nuclear policy will have the same effect; a dramatic, radical departure from past US policy that gives our potential nuclear foes everything they can dream of without Obama asking one, single thing in return.
I would love to play poker with this guy. He likes to surrender advantages without getting anything in return. Note our Iran policy where we have guaranteed the sovereignty of the Iranian regime by giving a virtual “no attack” pledge. And his constant moving of nuclear goalposts, as the “deadline” for Iranian compliance with UN resolution somehow keeps slipping. What, praytell, have the mullahs vouchsafed us in return?
Time after time during his first year in office, President Obama gave our foes little signals by unilaterally giving them what they want without asking for anything in return. It is madness, of course. more »
