Dems Stick It To Poor: Kill DC Voucher Program

December 31, 2009
By

The voucher story via Big Government.

This is big government at its finest hour. The Democrats have officially killed a successful private school voucher program banishing more than 3,300 low-income children back to the DC schools they so desperately wanted to escape.

It was two days ago when I linked the WaPo item...

Obama TSA Nominee Censured For “Grave Errors In Judgment”

December 31, 2009
By

Yeah, that's what we want. Someone running the TSA who was only censured once by the FBI and now admitting to having run only a few unethical, if not illegal, record checks on his ex-wife's boyfriend. Why is this coming out on New Year's Eve? LMAO That Obama, … he sure does know how to pick 'em.

And ...

TSA Backdown?

December 31, 2009
By

It would make sense. They have other issues they should be concerned with right now. Looked like an internal issue, anyway. If someone inside is leaking stuff, they've a right to go after them. But trying to hammer bloggers over something they'd give the larger media a pass on is...

Media: The Year In Mediocre

December 31, 2009
By

One could go on just about forever citing media lapses this year. And let's not forget their largest failure of the year, Obama. Two-thousand and nine was the first year of a so far less than stellar presidency the media all but guided him into while constantly touting tremendous expectations that haven't panned...

More Drastic Cuts At Washington Times

December 31, 2009
By

Funny, they are starting to look more like a model akin to Politco, perhaps?

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Washington Times slashed its staff by more than 40 percent and will eliminate its sports section and most local coverage in 2010, shifting its focus to politics, business and investigative reporting.

The 27-year-old newspaper...

Terrorist’s Last Phone Call Should Have Sounded Alarm

December 31, 2009
By

A would be airline bomber's last phone call set off alarms, but not within the CIA, apparently. Alarm seems to be the wrong word in that regard.

Abdulmutallab's final call alarmed the Father enough for him to go directly to Nigerian authorities. They took him directly to the CIA. And then,...

FBI Reports: Guns Sales Way Up, Crime Way Down

December 31, 2009
By

Via Mellissa Clouthier on Twitter. Link via the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action.

Last week, the FBI issued its preliminary 2009 crime report, showing that the number of murders in the first half of 2009 decreased 10 percent compared to the first half of 2008. If the trend holds for the...

CNN’s Sanchez Ambushes Ensign: Forget Terror, Let’s Talk Sex

December 31, 2009
By

How special. Video below via Teagan Goddard. The network that unceasingly told us sex was a personal issue during the Clinton years has suddenly discovered the error of its ways after inviting John Ensign on to talk about the recent attempted terror attack. Ensign's issues aside, are we supposed to believe...

Quick End Of Year Look Back

Not some schmaltzy round-up. Just via a recent referral to a Dec 2004 photoshopped post of mine. The things I once got away with out here! ; )

Judge Dismisses All Blackwater Shooting Charges

December 31, 2009
By

No doubt this is good news for Blackwater fans. But the grounds may prove to have troubling implications, perhaps? After the shooting the guards gave statements to the State Department. Prosecutors were forbidden from using those statements.

Okay. But once we start walking terrorists into Federal Court, I'm left wondering what statements of theirs...

iPhone App, Or Terror Threat?

December 31, 2009
By

Quite a wonderful bit of ingenuity here. Though I can't say it doesn't cause me to wonder about what the future holds with regard to the possibilities in even more sophisticated, less purely industrious hands.

In past, we have seen iPhone being made to use in situations such as driving vehicles, controlling...

Houston: Rocket Launcher Linked To Islamist

December 31, 2009
By

Well, isn't this special. Looking to do a little urban renewal for Allah, perhaps? But police found no link to a terror group, of course. Good Lord. As if they'd even know how to discover one given their primary job. 

The woman did tell police that the rocket launcher belonged to...

Terrorism: Will America Ever Connect The Dots?

December 31, 2009
By

As opposed to some of the more hateful and unhelpful rhetoric occasionally directed at Obama from some on the Right's fringe, an exclusive via The Jawa Report speaks to the genuine danger America faces from an overly progressive, politically correct administration. But that would be true under any liberal administration.

Yesterday at...

Gal “Re-Gifts” 9mm: Would Be Robber Flees

December 31, 2009
By

Now here's a gal you have to admire. At top below from an even better version. Sunshine Espresso owner "even felt sorry for him"! heh!

When a 17-year-old boy strolled up at 6:20 a.m., he pulled out a gun and said: "I'm sorry, I need you to put all your...

Dems Lose Another Top Recruit: Kansas

December 31, 2009
By

Talk about the worm turning. News of this type has completely reversed itself over the past four years. And it's partly linked to this move to show Super Delegates the door. Whatever new ruling paradigm Democrats may have thought they were going to build on Obama's shoulders after 2008 has collapsed. But it was...

Fighters Force Down Small Plane In Florida

December 31, 2009
By

I don't get this. The pilot is French and doesn't speak English. He was told to not fly. He does anyway and we scramble fighters to force him down. But no criminal charges? Can we at least give the idiot a bill?

John Cornelio, a spokesman for North American Aerospace Defense Command,...

Feds Target Bloggers, Not Big Media?

December 31, 2009
By

The most troubling part of this TSA going after bloggers deal is that it wouldn't be happening had it been the New York Times that broke the story. They can write an entire series, bring down a classified, covert prison system with implications around the world and win a Pulitzer.

But if a...

TheConservative Dot Com – Gone

December 31, 2009
By

That was fast. Can't say I'm surprised, unfortunately. Too many people think they can invent something successful out here by throwing a little money at it. But they never seriously ask people who know how to survive and grow a site out here how they did it. They don't understand the...

Tweeting Bleeping Liberals

December 31, 2009
By

As The Politico points out, I was simply having some fun at the expense of some rather annoying liberals wishing the worst for Rush Limbaugh. But that didn't stop some from taking, or pretending to take it seriously to attack me on Twitter.

But, turning the tables, some conservatives had fun...

Yemenis Raid Al Qaeda Hideout Linked To Airliner Attack

December 31, 2009
By

I'd imagine we'd have some Special Ops types providing support, if not taking part. Let's hope they kill the bastards. Credit to Obama is he was involved in giving a green light to this.

Yemeni forces raided an al-Qaida hideout and set off a gunbattle Wednesday as the government vowed to...
