“A troubled and afflicted mankind looks to us, pleading for us to keep our rendezvous with destiny; that we will uphold the principles of self-reliance, self-discipline, morality, and, above all, responsible liberty for every individual that we will become that shining city on a hill.” — Ronald Wilson Reagan

US Navy SEALs Castigate Obama For Taking Credit For Bin Laden Operation

Once again, we turn to the UK press to hear what the US leftymedia won’t tell us:

Ryan Zinke, a former Commander in the US Navy who spent 23 years as a SEAL and led a SEAL Team 6 assault unit, said: ‘The decision was a no brainer. I applaud him for making it but I would not overly pat myself on the back for making the right call.

‘I think every president would have done the same. He is justified in saying it was his decision but the preparation, the sacrifice – it was a broader team effort.’

Mr Zinke, who is now a Republican state senator in Montana, added that MR Obama was exploiting bin Laden’s death for his re-election bid. ‘The President and his administration are positioning him as a war president using the SEALs as ammunition. It was predictable.

Obama’s “Forward” Slogan Has Socialist & Marxist Pedigree

A mistake, or intentional?

Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”

Americans Don’t Believe War On Terror Is Over

Looks like the vast majority of Americans disagree with the anonymous “senior State Department official” who tried to claim that the war on terror is over.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 11% of Likely U.S. Voters think the war on terror is over. Seventy-nine percent (79%) say that war, declared after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America, is not over. Another 11% are undecided.

Obama Claims He Hasn’t Spiked The Football On Bin Laden Death

This one fails the laugh test miserably.

Speaking to reporters a day before the first anniversary, Obama took issue with the notion that his administration has tried to politicize the issue

“I hardly think you’ve seen any excessive celebration taking place here,” Obama said at a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Noda.

“I think the American people remember rightly what we as a country accomplished in bringing to justice someone who killed 3,000 of our citizens.”

Anti-Christian Bully Stands By Comments

Saturday I blogged about a speaker at an anti-bullying event turning into an anti-Christian bully himself. Today he says he stands by most of his comments.

Columnist and gay-rights advocate Dan Savage is standing by his comment that “we can learn to ignore the bulls**t in the Bible about gay people” at a recent conference for high school students, a line that prompted some to walk out and spurred intense online debate.

GM’s Effective Tax Rate For 2011 Was -1.5%

Yes, you read that right… Government Motors General Motors paid zero taxes, and because of fancy bookkeeping their tax rate was actually negative.

General Motors, in particular, paid less than zero taxes of 2011. And when the Administration brags that GM reported a $7.6 billion profit in 2011, conservatives are quick to note the profits include roughly $100 million in the form of a tax benefit document in GM’s annual report (p. 51) — and, thus, massive untaxed profits.

The outcome: GM paid a negative tax rate, around -1.5%, because of a decision allowing some of the bailout recipients, GM, AIG, and Citi, to avoid actual losses, but to still claim those losses for tax purposes.

Wind Farms May Add To “Global Warming”

Not really a good day for the greenies today. Turns out one of their favorite forms of “clean” energy — as long as the required machinery is in someone else’s backyard — may be adding to their huge bugaboo, “global warming.”

Large wind farms might have a warming effect on the local climate, research in the United States showed on Sunday, casting a shadow over the long-term sustainability of wind power.

“Green” Company Solyndra Abandoning Toxic Waste?

And here I thought that Solyndra was supposed to be the poster child for clean green energy?

Three months ago, CBS 5 caught Solyndra tossing millions of dollars worth of brand new glass tubes used to make solar panels. Now the bankrupt solar firm, once touted as a symbol of green technology, may be trying to abandon toxic waste.
