How the Left views the U.S.

Spreading the wealth via D.C. likened to a life-giving network

They don't even realize it when they are lampooning themselves! Take a look at this artwork. Gee, think this reveals anything about what the left believe is the "beating heart" of the country?

It all comes from Washington, of course. That's where the blood returns to be replenished with life-giving oxygen.

And the caption reads: "Liberty is to the collective body what health is to every individual body. Without health no pleasure can be tasted by man, without liberty no happiness can be enjoyed by society."

Anyone else think it is just a bit ironic that the folks pushing to socialize health care use a quote from Thomas Jefferson about liberty? Obviously these people don't have much of a grasp on the concept.

MM takes on Obama's 'Terrorism Stimulus'

President Obama’s hometown cronies lost their bid to bring the 2016 Olympic Games to the Windy City. But this week, they got a consolation prize: the Gitmolympics.

On Tuesday, the White House went public with its official plans to purchase the Thomson Correctional Facility from financially-strapped Illinois to house Guantanamo Bay detainees.

The War on Terror meets the Chicago Way.

The 'Silent and Terrible Ghost in the Room'

The Australian: President Chávez brought the house down. When he said the process in Copenhagen was “not democratic, it is not inclusive, but isn’t that the reality of our world, the world is really an imperial dictatorship…down with imperial dictatorships” he got a rousing round of applause. When he said there was a “silent and terrible ghost in the room” and that ghost was called capitalism, the applause was deafening.

At the end of the clip, Chávez takes a swipe at Obama, saying: "I don’t think Obama is here yet. He got the Nobel Peace Prize almost the same day as he sent 30,000 soldiers to kill innocent people in Afghanistan."

Obama goes off-script for Iran

He'd be better off dancing with the girl he brung

In response to multilateral condemnation of its nuclear program, Iran has announced its intent to expand massively its uranium enrichment facilities. Once again, the White House press spokesman has announced gravely that Iran has chosen to "isolate itself." Once again, the UN Security Council will consider a menu of ineffective economic sanctions.

Far better for the president and the Secretary of State to consider the counsel of their erstwhile mentor, Saul Alinsky. In Rules for Radicals, Alinsky observes, "No one can negotiate without the power to compel negotiation."

This is the nub of the Obama administration's problem with Iran. In fact, it was the nub of the Bush administration's problem with Iran, and of the Clinton administration's before that. How are we to compel Iran to negotiate seriously over its nuclear program?

We don't need no stinkin' open gov't

Some U.S. Senate 'open records' can only be seen in D.C.
Don’t try to videotape anything at the Office of the Secretary of the U.S. Senate, especially if the video is about “open records” available only at the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington, DC.

We recently asked Nancy Erickson, Secretary of the Senate, for permission to visit her office and create such a video:

We anticipate visiting your office for about two hours. During the first hour we will familiarize ourselves with the public access computers there. During the second hour, with your permission, we would videotape short sequences about the information that can be retrieved on those computers. We would like permission to videotape the screen on one of those computer terminals to help educate investigative journalists on how to use your system.

If possible, we would like permission to videotape one of your staff member’s responses to questions that we may have at that time.

In her reply (see below), we are disappointed that there is a longstanding policy that prohibits such filming. When we visit Hart Senate Office building in the near future, we’ll write about what records we can see there, especially ones that are not available anywhere else.

Both the Senate and House exempt themselves from Freedom of Information Act requests and create their own rules about access to information.
