Krauthammer Nails Obama, Wright, and Media

Day One

Another Fauxchohantas?

So Obama's literary agent notes that Obama was a Kenyan on a press release.

Why would anyone come to think that? Is anyone just going to assume you were born in (name your country) because your father was born there?

In fact, do you recall the Bill Ayer's mail man who claimed to have met Obama and the elder Ayer's and was told that Obama was a foreign student who the elder Ayer's was putting through school? If you don't, read this...

I'm not a birther. Frankly, the whole thing is a waste of time since there was so many other areas of this clown's life that would have disqualified just about any other candidate for president if the media had gone after it.

However, I'm starting to think that people are inclined to think Obama is Kenyan because that is what he told many people much like Elizabeth Warren pretended to be an Indian?

Here's another take...........

While reading Tim Stanley’s amusing take on the “Obama is a Kenyan according to his literary agent” revelation on, it suddenly struck me – what is with these liberals and their phony identities? Aren’t they happy being what they are?

Poor Elizabeth Warren wasn’t happy with her Caucasian self and had to pretend to be Cherokee. And now we find that Obama let sleeping dogs lie about his having been “Born in Kenya” on his agent’s website from 1991 until 2007 (just in the nick of time before running for Pres. of the USA).

Now I’m no “birther,” not even close. But this stuff is creepier than actually being born in a foreign country. This is in the realm of serious weirdness.

It’s going to be fascinating to see how the mainstream media plays this, because, as Stanley points out, much of this would be uncovered by a simple Google search. Stanley wonders why they never asked these questions, but I assume he was being rhetorical.

But in case they want a question to ask , here’s a simple one for POTUS at the next White House press conference: Assuming you never read the false information in your agent’s press kit, why did she think you were born in Kenya in the first place?

We can go from there.

But hey, The Washington Post is coming out with a 5000 word expose that 30 years ago, Mitt Romney farted on his college roommate's pillow and pulled the 'ole trash basket full of water against the door trick.

Justice for Sale

Life in "Progress" City - Chicago edition

Two days ago, For the Good of Illinois added another tranche of data to our online transparency portal at This installment includes every check written by the City of Chicago from FY 2002 to 2011.

It contains $74 billion in vendor payments. Last year alone, over 69,000 entities received checks, and you can see it all at The data contains numerous details: vendor code, transaction id, PO number, fund, department, amount, check number, and date.

Here’s a curious item found while digging though the data…

The Admiral Theatre, Inc., is a strip club on the northwest side of the city. Obama for America is the President’s campaign fund.

The City of Chicago approved payouts to each of them, using the same catch-all “vendor code” or expense classification. Further review found that neither vendor exists in the Chicago’s current on-line transparency portal.

The Admiral Theatre strip club received $5,197.78 from the City of Chicago between the dates 2006 through 2011. The sixteen checks ranges from $1.00 to $1,900. A buck? Is some one tipping dancers using City of Chicago checks?

The last time we checked, strip clubs aren’t required to disclose their sources of income, but that’s isn’t the case for presidential campaigns. Obama for America Campaign received a $1,000 check from the city on August 28th, 2007.


He's not a socialist

For a while, I've made the case the the Obamunists were not socialist at all. Instead, I like to refer to them as "Regulists".

You see if you are a socialist, (meaning the goods and services are provided by the government) you are accountable for price increases, shortages, and inefficiencies etc.

But the Regulists are more evil than that.

You see they just regulate companies and industries and when they pass along huge cost increases to their customers as a result of government regulation, they become the bad guys, not the Regulists who put the wheels in motion in the first place.

They just join the chants against the evil capitalist system.

No where has this been more prevalent than the health insurance business.

Want to know why companies are discontinuing health car? Maybe this is why............

The Franciscan University of Steubenville has announced it will drop health insurance coverage for students because the cost of the plan is expected to double under Obamacare. The university also took issue with a federal mandate that their insurance plan provide free birth control.

The small Catholic school in Ohio posted a statement on their website stating they “will not participate in a plan that requires us to violate the consistent teachings of the Catholic Church on the sacredness of human life.”

The university told Fox News that in addition to dropping its student insurance coverage, it will no longer require students to carry insurance. The university said it would maintain their current health insurance coverage for employees.

”This is putting people in a position where they are having to choose between their faith and their morality — and now an unjust cost,” said Mike Hernon, vice president of advancement. “These sorts of regulations from the government are forcing our hand in a way that’s really wrong.”

Hernon said students must have insurance – either through their parent’s policy or through the university’s basic plan. The plan currently costs approximately $600 per year. However, Hernon said their health care provider informed them that under Obamacare, the policy would double in price to $1,200 and the following year it would triple.

“We couldn’t believe the price (increase),” he told Fox News. “We had them go back and reconfirm it. They said it was dictated by coverage limits that were released by the Obama administration.”

Who do you think will be the first out there holding a pitch fork complaining about those evil health care profits?


Note of the day

Will the media make the comparison?

Maybe I’m missing something, but if Obama’s pal Dr. Eric Whitaker did offer Rev. Wright $150,000 to stay silent for the duration of the campaign, as charged by Ed Klein, how exactly is that different from John Edwards’ pal Fred Baron giving Rielle Hunter money to stay out of the limelight for the duration of the campaign? It’s a good question asked by lawyer/blogger Ted Frank. … Like Frank and Prof. Rick Hasen, I think the Edwards prosecution is misguided, potentially criminalizing lots of donations that might have ulterior political motives (like money spent funding think tanks or making hagiographic documentary movies). But if what Edwards did is fair game for prosecutors, why isn’t what Obama potentially did (assuming you could show a) that Obama knew of Whitaker’s offer, and b) also that he knew it was illegal–the latter being something the prosecution has had trouble proving in the Edwards matter)? …

One difference, I suppose, is that in the Edwards case the money was actually paid, while Wright is said to have turned down the offer. But is that a defense?  If you try to use illegal campaign cash to buy TV time, but the station turns you down, can’t you still be prosecuted for trying? …
