In September 2006, [James] Frey and publisher Random House reached a tentative legal settlement, the terms of which mandated refunds for readers who felt that they had been defrauded by Frey's book.
In January 2009, that same publishing house signed a deal with Obama [for a young-adult edition of "Dreams From My Father"] to defraud hundreds of thousands of new readers, little ones, likely with no choice in the matter but to be defrauded.
At some point, Bill Ayers has got to blow the whistle on this despotic bit of literary child abuse.

One feature that marks a totalitarian regime is media that serve as the government's information service. TASS, Radio Berlin, Voice of Hanoi – these were all government entities that conveyed what the dictatorship wanted. The handout comes, the handout is published. The real danger point arrives when propaganda no longer rankles, but flows naturally. That's when authority carries more weight than evidence, and peer pressure suppresses independent thinking. It's also when captives become subjects.
Watching our free, First-Amendment-protected media react to the surprising release of President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate, I have to wonder: What exactly is the difference?
I exaggerate, but not much.

Never forget that the No. 1 mantra of the left is that the end always justifies the means. As left-wing radicals are fond of saying, in revolutions, innocent people get killed. In other words, the deaths of innocent bystanders is just one of those things – an unfortunate sacrifice for the greater good. That said, if the left isn't bothered by the deaths of innocent people, why would Obama care about Osama bin Laden getting a bullet through the eye?
Those who now give Barack Obama a favorable rating for supposedly ordering the killing of Osama bin Laden still don't understand that Obama is the Master of Distraction. The whole event was simply a distraction from his ongoing destruction of the American economy.
The Master of Distraction knows how important it is that he continue to distract the pudding heads who are anxious to give him a boost in the polls every time he makes a smart-aleck crack about tea baggers or moats or alligators. The truth is, he doesn't give a damn about Osama bin Laden – or anyone else who isn't integral to his revolutionary goals.
If it takes a bullet in someone's eye to distract the American public, so be it. That said, I'd like to propose a national moratorium on the gushy applause for Chairman Obama for his "gutsy call." Please, enough already with the naiveté.

I am so grateful that for the first time in American history, and surely the first time in Mr. Obama's life, he was told no. Bibi will not sell out his country, Israel, as Mr. Obama is willing to do with America. Netanyahu drew a line in the sand and refused to budge. Netanyahu turned protocol upside down, lectured a sitting president in the Oval Office and then clearly refused to take a presidential directive.
I would love to have been a fly on the wall in the Oval Office during the meeting. The subsequent photo op was tense, to say the least. America wants to stand with her friend, Israel, and Netanyahu reminded the child president of that reality. Our nation will stand by the only true democracy in the Middle East.

Obama rolled into town and has spent virtually all his time, when not playing golf or on vacation, changing the country and the world to suit his view. Not only that, but he acts with an attitude of entitlement that enables him to make decisions for everyone, everywhere.

Barack Obama came to American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, on Sunday and declared that the U.S.-Israel relationship was ironclad. I was there and heard him say it, but it did not reassure me. I am dubious about Obama's promise. After all, he caused fright and worry amongst freedom-loving peoples when he endorsed the 1967 Auschwitz borders for Israel, and he did not dispel that concern at AIPAC.
The money quote of the day was, "If there's a controversy, then, it's not based in substance." Oh, really? I vill gaslight you and you vill like it.

Obama didn't break the color barrier for America, he broke it for elitist liberals like Marsh. And you can bet, if he hadn't gone to Harvard, wasn't pro-homosexual, or pro-Margaret Sanger's systematic extermination of blacks and the poor, or a pro-Alinskyite spawn of a Marxist Kenyan and a communist, [May Anne] Marsh and her kind wouldn't be championing him. She and her ilk objected to a decent (although clearly misguided) black Democrat like Harold Forde [sic] and mercilessly attacked every conservative black appointed to office or who won office.

President Barack Obama is not suffering a mild bout of geographical nostalgia. He's simply our first anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian president. How stupid of us Jews to wallow for decades in the post-Holocaust pity of the world and the world's admiration of Israel's military prowess, and never give a thought to the possibility of such a thing. An open enemy does not necessarily mean an honest enemy. This one lies.

Donald Trump decided not to run for president. I have mourned and have moved on. Herman Cain is now my favorite. Why? Because he's not a politician. He is a human being capable of understanding what people want and need. He understands that we have been pushed around for the past four years and cannot take it anymore. Cain has beaten cancer, and now he'll take on America's sickness, Obama – and I believe he'll be two for two after the 2012 elections.
