Bridget Donvan gets squeezed by the Feds. They say if life gives you lemons you make lemonade.  Better check with the Federal Government, first. According to InfoWars: The US government’s assault against innocent American citizens continues to get more aggressive and just plain strange, with new reports of harassment against honest owners of ordinary lemon trees....

2010 is going to be an interesting year.  We have already seen how incredibly partisan Democrats in the House and Senate have been regarding everything from blaming the CIA for their failings (remember when Nancy Pelosi disappeared for a month after her “they didn’t tell me” speech?) to making grand promises and then going back on them (closing Gitmo, banning “torture” but writing in an exception to releasing thousands of pages of pending legislation only hours before a vote was due on it). For 2010 I think...

Life under Democrats According to the latest Gallup opinion poll, President Obama’s popularity has slipped to just 47%.  Interestingly enough, Obama’s popularity among Independent voters is just 42% (it’s 83% among Democrats).  President Obama promised the world to everybody when he was running for president and, it seems, when you promise the world there’s bound to be a lot of rejection when you can’t deliver. The astounding costs of all of the proposals that the Democrats are making regarding the largest...

As President Obama heads to Asia (for which he snubbed the Dali Lama so as not to “offend” our bankers – the Chinese) new challenges await as Obamakare, the “stimulus,” and Cap and Trade have taken up all of his time, leaving trade agreements, crucial to improving exports, creating jobs, and reviving the economy, have gone ignored: In a meeting with President Barack Obama last week, Lee Kuan Yew, the veteran former prime minister of Singapore, said he felt privileged to meet the US leader at a “time of renewal...

Once again common sense shows why governments should not be “investing” taxpayer monies in these kinds of schemes, and why the $787 billion “stimulus” package Obama signed into law was just more government waste and Liberal pipe dreams: More than eight out of 10 US stimulus dollars spent on wind energy farms have gone to foreign companies, according to a report by the Washington-based Investigative Report Workshop, a non-profit journalist group. Of the $1.05bn handed out in grants so far – the majority since...

Comments Off on Obama, Like Bill Clinton, Wants China to Get U.S. Missile Technology

President(s) Janus. It’s time to party like it’s 1994!  Or maybe 1977..?  Like Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize but, more importantly, like Bill Clinton, Obama makes it easy for China to get their hands on our advanced missile technology.  I guess when you blow up the deficit like Obama did and the Chinese are keeping your ship afloat by holding $3 trillion you have to make some, uh, concessions: President Obama recently shifted authority for approving sales to China of missile and space technology from...

They won't be made in Japan much longer. Liberals love to talk about how Republicans (mostly George W. Bush when he was president) want to outsource jobs.  I guess they think that for every American job that goes overseas Republican politicians get $100.00 deposited into their bank accounts because they are in the “pocket” of all of those big companies… you know… “big” oil, etc…  As if the skeptics needed convincing of this statement: In his India trip, President Bush praised outsourcing...

As has been said here before, the destiny of the United States, due to our appetite for cheap goods and debt, is being placed in the hands of foreign countries.  With Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s recent trip to China, it becomes even more clear that the balance of power is shifting more and more towards China.  According to Mrs. Clinton: “I certainly do think that the Chinese government and central bank are making a smart decision by continuing to invest in Treasury bonds,” she said during an interview Sunday...

It sounds great… the U.S. government is going to try and keep the money in this country by inserting language into the massive spending bill that’s coming by saying “Buy American” must come first… but what will our trading partners think of this?  Exports are one of the few bright spots in the economy right now… exports that keep Americans employed and shareholders happy.  But if the government is forced to only buy from American companies when possible then not only will inefficient businesses stay that way but foreign companies...
