Fidel Castro: Obama Got ‘Overture’ Wrong
Apparently Raul Castro didn’t mean it when he said Cuban leaders would be willing to sit down with their U.S. counterparts and discuss “everything.”
HAVANA — Fidel Castro said Tuesday that President Obama “misinterpreted” his brother Raul’s sentiments toward the United States and bristled at any suggestion Cuba should free political prisoners or reduce official fees on money sent to the island from the U.S.
Mr. Obama… How far would you go to save an American life?
Bobby Eberle, The Loft
Do Obama and his left-wing cohorts remember what happened on September 11, 2001? I certainly do. Given the fact that Obama felt it necessary to release previously classified memos regarding American interrogation techniques, it seems to me that he is more concerned with the rights of terrorists than the lives of the American people. Yes, that sounds like a harsh statement, but read on, and let’s put the facts together. It all comes down to this fundamental question that any American could ponder, “How far would you go to save an American life?”
CIA Memos Release Great News for al-Qaida
This is political grandstanding in its most despicable and contemptible form, because it isn’t just votes at stake, but lives. And the mere discussion of truth commissions and potential prosecutions has already harmed our nation by chilling future policies that could protect us.
Obama Blames America
Demonizing Harry Truman may not play well with voters.
The Wall Street Journal
Since that bridge too far to Europe, ordinary Americans, including some who voted for Mr. Obama, have shown evidence of a quiet but durable resentment over the list of grievances against the United States that the president brought to the world’s attention while overseas. There are certain things that can’t be taken back. There are images that are hard to forget. Anger of this kind has an enduring power that could, in the end, haunt this presidency.
Gibbs denies Obama taught constitutional law
During his April 14, 2009 press briefing, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs had an exchange with Helen Thomas about detainees being held at the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. During this exchange, Gibbs denied that Obama “taught on constitutional law.”
$%^&*!!: Civility and tolerance in the Age of Obama
But in the age of Obama, there’s no room for such nuance and inconvenient truths. A decent young woman is a “dumb b*tch” for holding the same view of marriage as the Obamessiah. A conservative campus speaker is bullied as a hatemonger by wild-eyed hatemongers. A grass-roots movement is debased as a bunch of racist vulgarians by a media mob of racists and vulgarians. Civility and tolerance have taken a left-hand turn down a one-way street. So much for changing course.

A new radical, grassroots Right takes shape
Charleston City Paper
But in the meantime, I remain smiling. This might finally be the movement I’ve been waiting for — extremely principled, radically righteous, and conservative to a tea.
New law to ‘manage’ 8 million ‘volunteers’
Obama signs huge expansion of youth brigades legislation
World Net Daily
President Obama today signed into law the “GIVE Act,” H.R. 1388, which massively expands the National Service Corporation and allocates to it billions of dollars, and one executive for the program now says it will allow for the “managing” of up to 8 or 9 million people.

Care to step forward Mr Senator? If CFO Kellermann’s death is ruled a suicide, will you be offering a bow and apology of your own?
And for Earth Day…
Remembering Ira Einhorn, who claimed to be instrumental in creating Earth Day.
Ira Samuel Einhorn, a.k.a. “The Unicorn Killer” (born May 15, 1940), is a former American activist of the 1960s and 1970s who is now serving a life sentence for the 1977 murder of Holly Maddux.
Oh, and Happy Birthday Lenin
As today is the birthday of one of the great monsters of history, V.I. Lenin, I’ll avoid the all-too-easy comparisons with earth day and instead point you to this Style Weekly piece where the president of the Virginia Commonwealth University chapter of the International Students for Social Equality discusses whether Mr. Obama is a socialist.
Earth Day – more than just the environment
Earth Day represents a moment during the year when people worldwide can contemplate the human impact on our planet and recognize some things that we can do to keep the air and waterways clean, preserve species, and celebrate the joy our planet brings to us. But it should also be a day when citizens contemplate the sometimes heavy-hand of government on business and commerce as it attempts to regulate our way to a greener lifestyle.
Why I DON’T Celebrate “Earth Day”
I count myself as a conservationist. I believe that we have a responsibility to this great world that God has given to us. God has made us its stewards and while the planet’s resources are at our disposal, we must ensure that we leave things the same as or better than we found it.
