Who is more unpopular than Obama?

Who is more unpopular than Obama?

Rick
Moran

 

As always, Gallup
has the answer:

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s favorable rating is down
seven percentage points since May to 29%, a new low for her since assuming the
top congressional post.

Pelosi’s ratings were 2-to-1 positive, 44% to
22%, when she first assumed the speakership in January 2007, but they became
closely divided by March of that year and remained so in November 2008. Views
became more negative than positive for the first time in the first half of 2009,
possibly because of Pelosi’s public stance against the CIA’s use of “enhanced
interrogation” of terrorist suspects at Guantanamo Bay prison, and her dispute
with the CIA over whether she had been briefed on the matter. Spanning the
period these issues were in the news, her favorable rating fell from 42% to 32%.
Pelosi’s favorable rating recovered slightly in the first half of 2010 to 36%,
but it has since tumbled to the new low.
Independents in particular have become more negative about Pelosi, with her
favorability dwindling nine points among this group since May, to 21%. Nearly 6
in 10 independents (58%) now view her unfavorably, compared with 86% of
Republicans and 22% of Democrats.

With her own members running re-election ads trashing her, those numbers
aren’t surprising. There is little doubt that she will have a much easier time
managing things next January when her decimated caucus looks up from the
minority benches.

What illegal aliens are not

What illegal aliens are not

Stephen
Bennett

 

Those illegally in a country are not immigrants. Technically, there is no
such thing as an “illegal immigrant”. An immigrant is involved with an
established and orderly procedure of immigration (entering a country to which
one is not native in order to settle there by legal process).
They are not immigrants (the liberal media’s favorite), not undocumented
immigrants (the PC fan favorite), not undocumented
workers
(Gloria Allred’s favorite), not undocumented
Americans
(Harry Reid’s favorite), not economic immigrants (Big Business
favorite), not immigrants without work papers, not people who are working (open
borders activist favorite), not migrant workers, not entrants, not day laborers,
not the “unbanked
(Bill Clinton and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s favorite), not irregular
migrants
(the U.N.’s favorite) and certainly not “new Americans” the latest term applied
by the persistent amnesty zealots.
The federal government has defined them as “illegal
aliens
” since the 1980’s and explicitly uses that term in its laws and
statutes.

Janet Napolitano’s New Advisor

Janet Napolitano’s New Advisor

Thomas
Lifson

 

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano would no
doubt claim “The system worked” when she vetted Mohamed Elibiary, her latest
appointee to the Homeland Security Advisory Council, but Daniel
Pipes
raises some serious questions:

Mohamed Elibiary was one of the speakers at a December 2004 conference in
Dallas entitled “A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary,” Ayatollah Khomeini.
When Rod Dreher of the Dallas Morning News called him on this, he threatened Dreher, telling him: “Expect someone to put a
banana in your exhaust pipe.” (snip)
…from the Department of Homeland Security, October 15 (thanks to Jeff):
(snip)
Mohamed Elibiary is the President and CEO of the Freedom and Justice
Foundation, and has advised numerous federal, state and local law enforcement
organizations including the Texas Department of Safety and National
Counterterrorism Center Global Engagement Group on matters relating to homeland
security. Recently, Elibiary served on DHS’s Homeland Security Advisory Council
Countering Violent Extremism Working Group, and currently serves on the Texas
Department of Public Safety Advisory Board. In December of 2009 he helped
establish the Texas Fusion Center Policy Council to enhance information sharing,
analytical capabilities and community relations at the state and local law
enforcement levels.
I have met Mohamed Elibiary. He is a slick fellow. You can read here his dancing and obfuscation about deception in Islam and
other matters, in a long exchange we had here at Jihad Watch. Read it carefully,
noting the questions I ask him and the answers he gives to them, and ask
yourself whether he really ought to be on the Homeland Security Advisory
Council.
Elibiary once asked me to post his explanation of his appearance at the
Khomeini tribute conference. You can read all about that here.

 

We Don’t Need a “Great Victory”; We Need to Save Our Country

We Don’t Need a “Great Victory”; We Need to Save Our Country

October 19th, 2010

Kevin “Coach” Collins, Coach Is Right

The Political Class is our enemy. It wants a “Great day,” but  that’s not what we want. We can’t be satisfied with a “great day.”   “Great days” are the victories the Political Class craves because to  them elections are a series of games – “Sometimes you win sometimes, I  win. Let’s go get a beer now that this is over.” To us this is saving  the very life of our country, the life or death of America. To the  Political Class this is a muscle flexing contest. All of them see us as  “true believer suckers.”

We have to stay focused and make certain we  leave nothing undone. We are fighting the Second American Revolution.  Winning this one is even more important than winning the first one.  Losing the first Revolution, would not have put us in anywhere near the  sorry condition we are in today.

What each of us must do

To win this fight and save our country we have to take a number of steps.

We have to give as much money as we  possibly can to a conservative candidate.  As bad as things are now  we’ll be in worse shape if we fail to rid ourselves of these Marxists.  It will embolden them to more Statism.

Volunteer at a campaign headquarters.   You’ll find friendly people eager to welcome you and ask you to pitch in  on a number of tasks.

Backdoor Amnesty: Deportations Dismissals Up 700 Percent

Backdoor Amnesty: Deportations Dismissals Up 700 Percent

October 18th, 2010

Judicial Watch

A month after the Department of  Homeland Security launched a covert program to dismiss pending  deportations there’s been an increase of more than 700 percent in the number of   cases that have been dropped by the government in one of the nation’s   busiest immigration court systems.

In August Homeland  Security  officials quietly began to systematically dismiss the pending  removal  of illegal immigrants, even when expulsion was virtually  guaranteed or  the aliens had a criminal record. The move, first reported  by Texas’s  largest newspaper, stunned the legal profession and baffled immigration  attorneys who said it was “absolutely fantastic” for their illegal alien clients.

Just one month later 217 cases were dismissed in Houston’s immigration court system, which is among the nation’s busiest.

(Michelle) Obama Violates Election Laws?

(Michelle) Obama Violates Election Laws?

October 15th, 2010

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

The male of the species is not the only one who believes he is above the law. It appears Michelle Obama may have violated Illinois state election laws on Thursday by openly campaigning inside a polling place.

The first lady spoke to admirers and posed for pictures after casting a ballot inside Chicago’s Martin Luther King Center on Thursday. According to one of the people she spoke with, 56-year-old electrician Dennis Campbell, “She was telling me how important it was to vote to keep her husband’s agenda going.” A Chicago Sun-Times reporter apparently said this took place inside the center.

Engaging in any political discussion is illegal within 100 feet of any polling place in Illinois – and indeed, in many other states. That is why, for instance, no campaign flyers or literature is allowed within many feet of an election site.
