Return Of The Birthers

FTER FIRST OBSERVING the notorious "birther" movement back in July, 2008, long before many in the nation had tuned into the election, even before the financial crisis finally broke, which I anticipated atop the formidable shoulders of others here and here and here, there is finally a break in the courts for the "eligibilty to serve" suit to get heard. In what could prove to be a turning point in the legal challenges to Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president, a federal judge in California, also a former US Marine, has scheduled a hearing on the merits of a federal...

The Charlatan's Tent

Y FAVORITE LINE from the charlatan's tent so far this year has tumbled out of the mouth from Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. When confronted with the fact that Mister President has not done a single thing he promised during the campaign and is instead spending money as if there is no tomorrow while gutting the potential of people by raising taxes, Gibbs replied, “It’s not like you weren’t told. McCain’s campaign said we were going to be doing this right from the start.” Methinks Gibbs won't last out this year, perhaps not even six months. He's a giggling goofball. Surely...


Congratulations, Mr. President

HERE WE HAVE IT. The end of an era. A turn of the page. A so-called post-racial but racially-charged election is now in the books. And the winner and 44th President of the United States of America is the junior Senator from the Great State of Illinois—Barack Obama. We, at The Two-fisted Quorum, offer no apologies for owning our votes, and casting them for the opposition, but now that the Democratic ticket has won this historic election, it is time to move on past the ugly tactics this election process on both sides of the aisle could never transcend. It...


Tempting Mister Obama

ND PUTIN ISN'T EVEN the most serious enemy Obama would have to deal with. That distinction goes to the same opponent The New York Times and other liberal entities routinely fail to acknowledge because they don’t wear uniforms and abide by the rules of engagement that we’re used to seeing in Hollywood movies. No, our most serious enemy, in this fourth-generation war that swaps traditional geopolitical boundaries for ideological ones, is right next door. It’s hard to speak of terrorism without being accused by the left of seeing jihadists under every rock. But that’s precisely where they are. This week...


Keeping Strong On Defense

N THOSE FOGGY BOTTOM DAYS OF 2006, among other things, the US Senate debated an amendment—Vote 177—that commended the government of Iraq for affirming its position of not granting amnesty to terrorists who attack U.S. armed forces. This occurred at a time when the situation in Iraq was bleak and terrorist activity high, in the year prior to the onset of the “surge” and the new counterinsurgency strategy successfully executed by General Petraeus. For the Iraqi government, during this time, to affirm its position that terrorists who attack U.S. armed forces should not be granted amnesty, was a commendable act...
