The President and the Panthers By Andrew C. McCarthy http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/279245/president-and-panthers-andrew-c-mccarthy A couple of days ago, I pointed readers to Andrew Breitbart’s report about President Obama’s having appeared and marched with members of the New Black Panther Party in Selma in 2007.

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/print/279201 Holder’s Dubious History The AG’s Fast & Furious amnesia is reminiscent of his Marc Rich amnesia. House Republicans are now calling for a special counsel to investigate whether Attorney General Eric Holder perjured himself in congressional testimony about the scandalous Fast & Furious program.

http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=46597 Anwar al-Awlaki, a desperately evil man who was linked to the 9/11 attacks (he was “spiritual adviser” to a couple of the hijackers) as well as to the Fort Hood jihad murder, the Christmas underwear jihad bombing attempt on an airplane over Detroit, and the Times Square jihad mass murder attempt, has gone to […]
The stars are aligned for Mitt Romney. In every Republican debate, he has been left relatively untouched by the moderators and by every candidate save Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. He continues to ride high in the national polling, holding steady at near one quarter of the likely Republican primary voters. The Republican Party bigwigs, including key funders on Wall Street, are throwing their support to him.
There’s only one problem: He’ll lose the general election.
He’ll lose the general election for a very simple reason: Nobody in the conservative base is excited about him. While the so-called GOP opinion leaders wax on about how super-electable he is, they fail to recognize that it is precisely that logic that gave us the unelectable John McCain. Turnout wins elections these days, not appeals to the independent voter.

Moreover, he would like us to believe that this “state” is responsible and accountable and deserves to be part of the […]
Other American killed with Awlaki was ‘Al Qaeda to the core’
Samir Khan, 25, also reported killed in the U.S. strike in Yemen, was a skilled propagandist who wrote virulently militant blog posts while a college student in Charlotte, N.C.

Egypt’s Arab Spring: Springtime for Nazis? http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.10513/pub_detail.asp Adolf Hitler died in 1945. Fascistic Nazism did not die with him. When Hitler rose to power in 1933 Germany, he found common ground with the Muslim Brotherhood. Muslims agreed with Hitler’s methods of ethnic cleansing and genocide, to rid the world of Jews. During WWII Amin Al […]
http://www.commentarymagazine.com/2011/10/04/perry-race-washington-post/ If you were wondering whether the Washington Post would double-down on or retreat in shame from its blockbuster story alleging that Rick Perry lives in the same state as a formerly offensive rock, the paper has answered that question in style today. Here is the blaring headline: “Perry built complicated record on matters of […]
