By Alan Caruba Move over Baghdad Bob and make room for White House Bob. Robert Gibbs, the official spokesman for the Obama administration, master of the daily briefings, and quite possibly the biggest dufus to hold the job since Scott McClellan, formerly of the G.W. Bush administration. It is noteworthy that W’s new book has […]

Why Barack Obama Doesn’t Much Care for Britain

December 11, 2010 by

1

By Daniel Hannan Let’s review the evidence. President Obama received from Gordon Brown a pen-holder made from the timbers of a Royal Navy anti-slavery vessel, and reciprocated with DVDs. He silkily downgraded the UK from “our closest ally” to “one of our allies”. He gave the Queen an iPod full of his own speeches. He […]

Just call them corrupt. It saves having to think

December 11, 2010 by

By Andrew Bolt David McKnight, an academic who was naturally once a writer for the Communist Party, has like so many others swapped his red flag for a green one. But he still has a tendency to see capitalist conspiracies, and to counter reason with group solidarity: David McKnight, a senior research fellow at the […]

Our Stealth Congress

December 10, 2010 by

1

By Alan Caruba We are living in an era in which our Congress and much of our government operates like a stealth bomber, destroying rights we assume to be protected by the U.S. Constitution and otherwise encumbering an ailing economy in ways known to make it worse. Take, for example, the House passage yesterday of […]

Ted Turner’s Craziest Scheme Yet: Cap and Trade…With Children

December 10, 2010 by

1

By Lachlan Markay Media mogul Ted Turner, who founded cable networks CNN and TBS, wants a global child-bearing “cap and trade” system to combat climate change. He has thought up a bizarre take on China’s one-child policy: set a strict one-child limit, and let poor people sell credits for children they don’t have! At the […]

Climate Conference Set to Crash and Burn?

December 10, 2010 by

1

By Roger Helmer MEP, a Guest Contributor at The Foundry. I’m here at the UN’s Cancun Climate Conference—or COP16 (Conference of the Parties) in the jargon.  The last two COPs in Poznan (2008) and Copenhagen (2009) were (ironically) characterized by exceptionally cold weather.  I can’t say that there’s December snow in Cancun, but locals tell me […]

What 1 billion climate refugees?

By Andrew Bolt Slowly, slowly, the alarmists are being confronted. This time it’s by a warmist academic – and even in the Sydney Morning Herald. Associate Professor Jane McAdam, editor of Climate Change and Displacement, dismisses the latest scare-claims from Cancun: If we are to believe recent reports, the effects of climate change over the […]

Is Anything Secret Anymore? Depends on Whose Secrets!

December 9, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba The one thing that the pundicracy—the columnists, former government and other folk who express themselves in print and broadcast media—have missed about the latest WikiLeaks outrage is that, like the earlier one regarding Afghan military operations, both have been directed solely at the United States of America. Are we really surprised that […]

By William R. Hawkins On Dec. 6, the Reserve Officers Association and the Woodrow Wilson Center hosted a half-day conference on the crisis facing the American defense industrial base.

WikiLeaks Supporters too Chicken to Attack The Endive

December 9, 2010 by

0

From The Endive – The News Leader of the Known Universe Supporters of WikiLeaks proved once again that when targeting enemies of the controversial site, they are way too spineless to attack The Endive. Allies of WikiLeaks have attacked Paypal, Twitter, Mastercard, FoxNews and others. “Sure, we aren’t FoxNews,” said a spokesman for The Endive, […]

Try Winding Back Wind Power When Unions Super Funds Are So Involved

December 9, 2010 by

By Andrew Bolt Productivity Commissioner Gary Banks warns we really are in for a “tough time” if commentators are right and productivity reform under Julia Gillard is at a standstill. He says we’d better free up the workplace laws a bit more and he also seems to warn against adding to the costs of our […]

Memo to America: Don’t do Carbon Trading!

December 8, 2010 by

1

By Roger Helmer, MEP Senator Harry Reid has repeatedly denounced opposition to carbon trading as “dangerous.” Senator Reid is wrong. It is the House and Senate climate and renewable energy bills that are dangerous. Fortunately, the recent elections and the ongoing dissension at the Cancun climate summit could bode ill for carbon trading, any successor […]

By Alan Caruba With the two-year anniversary of the Obama administration coming in January, combined with the results of the midterm elections and the plunge in the president’s approval polls, it’s worth taking a moment to look at just some of the almost daily blunders of Barack Hussein Obama. Chief among them must surely be […]

Reject All Energy Mandates: It’s Just Another Subsidy

December 8, 2010 by

0

By Nicolas Loris With cap and trade out of the realm of possibilities, Members of Congress have turned their attention to mandating so-called clean energy. Some Members hoped for a lame duck vote on a renewable electricity standard (RES), which would require that a certain percentage of our nation’s electricity production come from wind, solar, […]

The Cancun Wealth Redistribution Conference

December 8, 2010 by

0

By Paul Driessen It’s become a predictable annual rite. Several weeks prior to each global warming gabfest, breathless news stories, editorials, op-eds and pontifications begin hitting the airwaves and print pages, reaching a crescendo as the conference opens. So it was with Copenhagen; so it is with Cancun. Actually, it may be worse this year. […]

By Andrew Bolt The Rudd mentioned in the title is former Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd, who was replaced while still in that office by Julia Gillard, who not long after seizing power, called a general election. Her Labor Party Government’s comfortable majority was decimated so badly, that to stay on as the Government […]

Ms. Browner had headed the Environmental Protection Agency in the Clinton […]

Eco-Insanity and ANWR

December 7, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba The abject desperation and evil intentions of so-called environmentalists can be seen in the call to turn the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) into a national monument on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its designation. This would provide ANWR with the same status as the Statue of Liberty—only there aren’t billion […]

By Noel Sheppard Charles Krauthammer on Monday said that when Barack Obama spoke to the nation hours ago to announce a tax extension compromise just reached with Republicans, “It was actually a speech addressed at Daily Kos, the New York Times, and MoveOn.” In Krauthammer’s view expressed on Fox’s “Special Report,” “This was a speech […]

WikiLeaks and the Mexican Drug War

By Allan Wall “The fact is governments deal with the United States because it’s in their interest, not because they like us, not because they trust us and not because they think we can keep secrets.” Robert Gates, U.S. Secretary of Defense WikiLeaks, a website operated by Julian Assange  that publishes leaked material provided by […]

Not so worried about warming that they’ll pay to stop it

December 7, 2010 by

By Andrew Bolt Of course Australians still believe man is heating the world. It’s just that half of them now don’t want to lift a finger to stop it: AUSTRALIANS are evenly split over whether they would pay more for energy to cut greenhouse gas emissions, according to the latest Newspoll. The nation, however, overwhelmingly […]

AP Reporters Try to Breathe Life Into Moribund UN Cancun Climate Conference

December 6, 2010 by

By Tom Blumer I do hope that Associated Press reporters Arthur Max and Charles J. Hanley are finding some recreational time while they are reporting from Cancun about what’s happening at the “United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.” The pair’s bosses ought to be asking them how much real attention they are paying to […]
