Tax troubles

Three of President Barack Obama's high-level nominees have had tax troubles jump up and bite them of late. The first, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, was confirmed. As mentioned below, HHS Secretary-designate Tom Daschle withdrew his name from consideration by the Senate today. Nancy Killefer, the woman Obama selected to be his "chief performance officer," and […]

New York Times on Daschle

The New York Times editorial board comes out against tax-cheater Tom Daschle. When President Obama nominated former Senator Tom Daschle to be his secretary of health and human services, it seemed to be a good choice. Mr. Daschle, as the co-author of a book on health care reform, knew a lot about one of the […]

Mini movie review

Finally got around to watching "Eagle Eye" on DVD. Kinda fun movie, but there's nothing new under the Sun. The movie is a cross between "Enemy of the State" and "I, Robot" with just a dash of "Murder at 1600." All of which makes me think they were probably originally angling for Will Smith for […]

The pictures probably aren't as good

Dozens of people are dead in Kentucky because of a severe ice storm that has left people without power and cut off from the outside world. FEMA has been slow to respond and the president hasn't rushed to the area to survey the damage. The media isn't interested in applying the Katrina standard to the […]

President Barack Obama won plaudits from some government watchdog types for his new ethics rules that forbade people who had lobbied the government during the past two jobs from taking posts in his administration. It turns out, Obama's rule isn't much of a "rule." In Obama's first 13 full days in office, he's issued 17 […]

The definition of a gaffe

It's been said that a gaffe is accidentally telling the truth. For a real-world example, I give you Brendan Daly. Nearly all of the 11 Democrats who voted against the economic stimulus package Wednesday had an incentive other than the plan’s hefty price tag: Nine of them hold districts carried by John McCain in 2008.

A new kind of politics?

To a certain extent I can understand why some GOP senators would be willing to vote for Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner even though he was likely a conscious tax-dodger. Geithner is probably the best person to head Treasury that a left-liberal like President Barack Obama could pick as far as most conservatives would be concerned. […]

There's no getting through to some people

I had a conversation Saturday with a couple of liberal friends -- not journalists -- and came away with little more than rote recitation of false liberal talking points. Among the arguments made was that the housing crisis that snowballed into a financial crisis which avalanched into a severe recession turning into a depression was […]

Press-Did you hear Kamala is not a US citizen?

Trump-"I have no idea if that’s right...I don't know about it"

Kessler-"Trump promotes false claim that Harris might not be a U.S. citizen"

Biden-I went to the border

Kessler-His plane landed in El Paso in 2008, close enough!


Report: Fauci's NIH division shipped part of a $375k grant to "drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies so that the insects could eat them alive" to test a drug.

This is absolutely horrifying and deserves answers.
