Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

Much has been said about the first-ever report on U.S. human rights to the UN Human Rights Council, which the Obama administration released to the public this week. Most commentators have focused on how our least patriotic president apologized for America’s shortcomings. But there is a more important facet to the report: it establishes a host of new socialist “rights” the administration hopes globalist bureaucrats will help enforce.

Although a large majority of Americans support enforcing immigration law, the Obama administration has undertaken a series of steps to impose amnesty upon the country by fiat. Administration officials are largely ignoring the law, forbidding local officers from keeping their communities safe, and preparing a federally imposed plan of amnesty without a single representative voting on it – all to secure a loyal Democratic voting bloc.

Part of Barack Obama’s plan to … Read the Rest of this Post

One of the side effects of socialized medicine is that the government must have access to the history and prognosis of all its patients. This Big Brother boon is coming to America.

The New York Times reported over the weekend that the Obama administration is “rewriting” its rules governing who can look into medical records – and whether you are allowed to find out about it. Kathleen Sebelius, Obama’s HHS secretary, drafted temporary rules last … Read the Rest of this Post

Apparently Barack Obama is not content to make a federal case out of his immigration feud with Arizona; he just made it an international one.

The president’s first-ever report on U.S. human rights to the UN Human Rights Council contains a rich vein of offensive material. So far, one aspect has not been reported: our petty president used the situation to bash Arizona’s immigration law — and possibly transfer jurisdiction over … Read the Rest of this Post

Obama, Socialist-in-ChiefBefore setting off on his sixth vacation of the year in elite Martha’s Vineyard, Barack Obama made four recess appointments. Credible sources report the FBI once listed one of them as a Communist “asset.”

Obama nominated Maria (or “Mari”) del Carmen Aponte as ambassador to El Salvador last December, but it was not her first nomination. In 1998, Bill Clinton nominated her ambassador to the Dominican Republic. When Senate Republicans Read the Rest of this Post

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown

The Obama press office is in full damage-control mode after Obama’s comments to a Muslim religious iftar dinner held at the White House. Obama was direct and clear: “[A]s President, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country. And that includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in Lower Manhattan.”

Money

Conservatives often see the government as an Orwellian apparatus hungrily devouring our God-given rights. Liberals in power (three of the scariest words ever written) often given them ample reason to think so. But just as often, the government is less a sleek tiger than a bloated pig gorging on everything available, reveling in filth, and unintentionally destroying everything it touches in the process. Republican Senators Tom Coburn and John McCain have revealed how Obama’s stimulusRead the Rest of this Post

Obama in Muslim Outfit in Kenya

The Left is seething over a new poll showing nearly one-in-four Americans believe Barack Obama is a Muslim. A Time magazine poll found 24 percent of all Americans believe Obama is a Muslim. Another poll conducted by the Pew Research Center set the number at 18 percent. That’s nearly double the number that said the same thing in March 2009 (10 percent). Both polls showed the same trend: more Americans … Read the Rest of this Post

Obama: Big Brother is Watching You

A new Senate report reveals the Obama administration spent nearly half-a-million dollars in stimulus funds to purchase recycling bins implanted with microchips, designed to monitor private citizens’ recycling levels.

Republican Senators Tom Coburn, R-OK, and John McCain, R-AZ, tracked 100 misuses of stimulus funds in a publication entitled “Summertime Blues,” released just weeks ago. (It is far from a comprehensive list.)

They found the administration gave $500,000 to the city of Dayton, … Read the Rest of this Post

Obama Convict

A radical left-wing activist has confirmed Republican charges that the Obama administration runs an extensive and potentially illegal propaganda campaign from the White House. We noted yesterday that Rep. Darrell Issa’s House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform issued a 36-page report noting that the president has used taxpayer dollars to finance “a sophisticated propaganda and lobbying campaign” made up of “inappropriate and sometimes unlawful public relations and propaganda initiatives.” Often, this … Read the Rest of this Post
