Team of Tax Slobs.
Knock me over with a feather. Another Obama nominee made "unintentional" errors, meaningless goofs, nothingburger mistakes on her tax returns. It's HHS nominee Kathleen Sebelius. Via Brian Montopoli of CBSNews: Hey, where's that stamp? Oh, yeah. There it is.
Scroll down for updates... Polls will close in a bit in New York's 20th congressional district special election to replace Democrat Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand. If you voted, let us know.

Not making this up: "10 terms not to use with Muslims." On the list: Assimilation. Freedom. Religious freedom. Tolerance.
Grabby Hands.
This is not a surprise. Grabby Hands Barney Frank has been signaling his salary control plans for weeks. In early February, you'll recall, he told Business Week that compensation restrictions might be restricted to all US companies, not just TARP recipients. Now, via Byron York: [I]n a little-noticed move, the House Financial Services Committee, led... Read More
Prescription for pain.
Reuters is running a story on the Obama administration's new federally subsidized counseling services/referrals for those suffering from depression related to the economy. As usual, the government's prescription for pain is...more government. The economic psychology guide was developed with help from the Departments of Labor, HUD, Treasury, and GSA. From the SAMHSA.gov website: Economic turmoil... Read More
Eric Zimmermann at The Hill reports tonight that the most ethical Congress ever voted again to cover corruptocrat John Murtha's ample backside: To paraphrase the King of Pork, they're not corrupt, they're just taking care of each other.
Asshats In Government.
Simple question from Glenn Beck today to the crusading Connecticut Attorney General still on his anti-AIG witch hunt: Under what law are you going after the AIG bonuses? Blumenthal hemmed and hawed for a painful six minutes before coming up with this: "Because they are undeserving of it." Remember those six chilling words: "Because they... Read More

The always brilliant Doug Powers has created the new Government Motors logo. Beep, beep! You got a better one? Let me know. We could save the feds (er, ourselves) millions of dollars on Auto Recovery Logo Design bills. *** Bucktown Dusty has the scoop on the first GM/Obama hybrid design. Dan Cleary tweets: "Soon, cars...

* Taking precautions: "An imitation Kalashnikov rifle and fireworks have been seized by police investigating alleged terrorism in connection with the G20 summit. Three men aged 25, 19 and 16 and two women of 20, from the Plymouth area in Devon, were held after the 25 year old was seen allegedly spraying graffiti. A number... Read More
That Great American Patriot Bill Maher smears our troops serving in Japan and Germany: "At some point these people are going to have to learn to rape themselves." Two quick things: 1) You'll note that liberals have nothing to say about U.N. "peacekeepers" raping women and children around the world. 2) This story has gotten... Read More
Twit vs. Twitter.
Sorry I can't be more eloquent, but: Bwahahahahahaaha. Edward R. Murrow he is not.
Artifice in government.
Financial blogger Zero Hedge has a provocative post that will raise your blood pressure this morning. This is worth fist-pounding and investigation in Congress: Exclusive: AIG Was Responsible For The Banks' January & February Profitability It's complicated, but it boils down to this: Banks bragged about their wonderful performance the first two months of the...

Scroll for updates... Photoshop credit: George of Elegant Memories The Obama administration is swaggering over its firing of GM CEO Richard Wagoner and its demand for more restructuring concessions from GM and Chrysler before they dole out more money. But the bottom line is, despite their threats to withhold the funds, the feds will eventually... Read More
I'm busy offline today with various and sundry projects. Talk amongst yourselves!
Ugh. The Perpetual Obama Campaign Machine is a 24/7/365 operation. This landed in my e-mail box yesterday from the money-grubbers at the DCCC. Dear Michelle, Last November, with the election of President Obama, we sent a clear message that people who love justice and respect democratic ideals can once again have faith in America. President... Read More
It's official: A commenter at SFGate.com diagnoses the problem perfectly: "If the name of the school, rather than the achievement of educational excellence, is the motivating factor for the kids then the school is very much like its namesake...lots of slogans, lots of hype, no substance."
Illumination.
I mentioned earlier this week that my friends at CEI are leading a counter-movement today to answer the enviro-nitwits' "Earth Hour" with Human Achievement Hour. Leave the lights on between 8:30pm and 9:30pm and watch this video with your friends and family! *** Speaking of dim bulbs...
Getting a clue.
I'm going to have to make this a series. Earlier this week, I noted a belated report from the Associated Press delving into the fuzzy porkulus jobs numbers proffered by the Obama administration. Well, it looks like the AP is really catching on to this bogus math thing. The wire service has a new analysis... Read More
Look for the double-talking union label.
SEIU's motto is the same as Barack Obama's: Do as I say, not as I do. Guess who's exposing SEIU's hypocrisy? Workers laid off by the union in violation of their labor contract. Delicious. The protesters' chants: "How do you spell hypocrisy? S-E-I-U!" and "Hey, hey, ho, ho, union busting's got to go:"
What's in a name?
Apropos of the Pentagon e-mail exchanges over the whitewashing of "Global War on Terror" that I published yesterday, check out: The Obama-Matic (TM) Content-Free Euphemism Generator. *** If you have kids, this will remind you very much of the Captain Underpants' Name-Change-O-Chart!
Big government bedfellows.
God save us from bipartisanship, part 99,995,857. GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch, co-sponsor of the $6 billion GIVE/SERVE boondoggle, has dedicated the Big Government Trojan Horse to Ted Kennedy: (
Law enforcement officials from around the country joined Oakland citizens today to honor four police officers murdered in a bloody shooting spree. The service at the Oakland Coliseum has drawn 19,000 people. Crowd are overflowing. Full coverage here, with info on how to express condolences and contribute to a memorial fund for the fallen police... Read More
Dr. Cory Franklin had a provocative piece in the New York Post yesterday exploring whether Canada's government-run health care system contributed to the tragic skiing death of Natasha Richardson. He writes: Richardson died of an epidural hematoma -- a bleeding artery between the skull and brain that compresses and ultimately causes fatal brain damage via... Read More
The shamnesty crowd is ready to roll again. The illegal alien college tuition discount bill known as the "DREAM Act" has been reintroduced -- with bipartisan support, as usual: Reminder: Last year, the DREAM Act fell eight votes short of cloture in the Senate (see Donny’s detailed post for more). As with several other pieces... Read More
And another one down, and another one gone...
It's not like Tim Geithner can afford to lose any of the few officials who are actually working at the Treasury Department with him, but last night, he put one on leave. Very curious -- especially given the sacked employee's recent increased visibility for his public statements about the government's (mis)handling of AIG. The WSJ... Read More
My syndicated column today continues the theme I blogged about two days ago in the "Rule of the Mob" post. Keep an eye on next week's G20 summit in London. Thousands of anti-capitalism zealots will be amassing there to intimidate and harass bankers. The vandalizing of the Scottish ex-banking executive's home in Edinburgh is just... Read More
I'm scheduled to talk about the GIVE/SERVE Act on Glenn Beck's show at around 5:30pm Eastern. (Update: Watch the vid at Hot Air.) Quin Hilyer takes a closer look at the creepy national service expansion plans in today's DC Examiner, and posts an update on one troublesome provision: Alas, every last cent of the $6... Read More
The GOP "Road to Recovery."
President Obama wanted to see the GOP budget alternative. Here it is.
Yesterday, the Washington Post reported on the Obama administration's vehement denial that it is backing away from the phrase "Global War on Terror." The phrase has long been a source of debate and rancor - not just on the left, but also on our side because it omits the important, specific context of global jihad... Read More
Never mind.
The AIG bonus-bashing, backside-covering sound and fury signifying nothing fizzles out. Curtains close on Kabuki Theater of Outrage...until the next act comes along: A House panel endorsed a gentler approach Thursday to trying to stop bailed-out financial institutions from giving their employees big bonuses, as lawmakers indicated they were willing to put down their pitch...

$%^&*!!
So, when's the ACORN/MSM-chartered bus to Rahm's (illegal) apartment departing to protest his ill-gotten gains? Hmmmm? Before its portfolio of bad loans helped trigger the current housing crisis, mortgage giant Freddie Mac was the focus of a major accounting scandal that led to a management shake-up, huge fines and scalding condemnation of passive directors by...

Smells like permanent campaign spirit.
Scroll down for updates... At 11:30am Eastern, President Obama will conduct an "online townhall" on the economy. At this moment, the White House website reports that "92,889 people have submitted 104,079 questions and cast 3,608,538 votes." In order to ask a question, you must register your name, e-mail, and zip code. The DNC, fresh off... Read More
Last month before signing the Generational Theft Act of 2009, President Obama and Bozo the VP Joe Biden extolled a solar panel manufacturer that outfitted the Denver Museum of Science and Nature. I pointed out the generous government help the company received. Now, the Colorado-based Independence Institute provides the rest of the story -- and... Read More
Hey, Associated Press: Way to look after the public interest! A month after the Generational Theft Act was rushed through Congress and signed into law, the news service tells us that the jobs projections were basically pulled out of thin air. The title of the AP's penetrating, belated analysis: "Bold claims of stimulus jobs can't... Read More
Where in the world is Barack Obama's illegal alien aunt, Zeituni Onyango? When last we saw the destitute relative, she was partying on Inauguration Day despite her fugitive status. The deportation evader is set to have yet another day in immigration court. She's back at her Boston public housing complex, courtesy of the American taxpayer,... Read More
I'm scheduled to appear on Fox&Friends this morning at around 7:15am Eastern to talk about the Fishwrap Rescue and Recovery Act of 2009. But first: COFFEE!
This is beginning to get repetitious. Just in from the EPA, another Obama nominee is bailing out over scrutiny of his past: EPA Statement on Jon Cannon Release date: 03/25/2009 Contact Information: Betsaida Alcantara, 202-564-1692 / [email protected] or Brendan Gilfillan, 202-564-2081 / [email protected] (Washington, D.C. – March 25, 2009) Jon Cannon, nominee for Deputy U.S....

"Could I ask you about race?"
I mentioned it in the POTUS/TOTUS press conference liveblog last night, but I'm still marveling at the stupidity of it. "It" being the bone-headed question on race from ABC News reporter Ann Compton: The question was so ill-conceived and softball that even President Obama seemed embarrassed. Transcript: Ann Compton? Hey, Ann. You sound surprised. Q:... Read More
Dissent.
Depressing fact of the day: Only 14 Senate Republicans voted against cloture on the $6 billion national service GIVE/SERVE boondoggle. Here are the fiscally responsible 14: Brownback (R-KS) Bunning (R-KY) Coburn (R-OK) Crapo (R-ID) DeMint (R-SC) Ensign (R-NV) Inhofe (R-OK) Kyl (R-AZ) McConnell (R-KY) Risch (R-ID) Roberts (R-KS) Sessions (R-AL) Shelby (R-AL) Thune (R-SD) Not...

Pshop credit: Bucktown Dusty Someone really needs a teleprompter of his own: Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner sent the dollar tumbling with comments about China’s ideas for overhauling the global monetary system, only to drive it back up by affirming that it should remain the world’s reserve currency. Geithner was initially asked at a Council on... Read More
Nancy Pelosi isn't the only one who thinks hard-working men and women in interior immigration enforcement are unpatriotic. If you can stomach it, watch the whole ICE-bashing diatribe. The "anti-American" smear gets tossed in at the end. And yes, that's McCain open-borders Hispanic outreach advisor Juan Hernandez sitting next to the smear merchant, followed by... Read More
