THE NEW PRESIDENTIAL LOOK? - As the Congress adjourns and prepares to return home to campaign, President Obama has shed his jacket and begun a daily campaign swing to help elect Democrats. The more he runs around in his shirt sleeves not only attacking the GOP but ridiculing individual Americans and the Fox News network, the more his ratings continue to drop. Perhaps his ratings would improve if he would act and speak more like a President and less like some guy with bad poll numbers running for city council in Chicago.
IS YOUR KID'S COLLEGE "AUTHORIZED" ? - Obama's Department of Education has drafted new rules to take effect in November that require all public and private colleges and universities to become "authorized" institutions or lose their accreditation. To become authorized a school must submit to the Department of Education's requirements on curriculum, faculty, textbooks, evolution, climate change, abortion, sexual orientation ... you get the concept. Any school or college that does not meet the requirements will be shut down. The Department of Education is very serious about this and will proceed with this power grab if not stopped. Read more.
THE COMIC, THE COMEDIAN AND THE SPEAKER - Ruth Marcus writing in the Washington Post said, "Stephen Colbert is no Elmo -- which is why it was crazy for House Democrats to have him testify before a subcommittee last week about migrant labor." The late night comic made a mockery of the legislative process, making it clear in his "immigration" testimony that he was there to tell jokes to be used on his show. Many Democrats were actually embarrassed, but not House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said, "Of course I think it's appropriate. He's an American, right? He comes before the committee, has a point of view, he can bring attention to an important issue like immigration." For no other reason than to get this nutcase out of the Speaker's office, Republicans should take the majority in the House in November.
CAN DICTATOR IN AFRICA TELL YOU HOW TO RAISE YOUR CHILD? - If the United States ratifies the the UN's CRC (Convention for the Rights of the Child), the answer is yes. This is complicated: Only three nations in the world have constitutions that require them to enforce international treaties as law within their borders. The United States is one of those nations. All other nations can sign treaties, but are not required to enforce them inside their borders, which is why Muslim nations sign these kinds of treaties as they have no intention of honoring them. The CRC would require all domestic laws in the United States to conform to the CRC and whatever dictator happens to be running the commission set up by the United Nations at the time. This must be stopped. Learn more at www.parentalrights.org
HOUSE SUPPORTS DESERT CROSS - On Tuesday the The House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning the theft of the Mojave Cross memorial and urging federal officials to help recover it. Congressman Jerry Lewis, (R-CA) proposed the resolution which passed by voice vote. The theft occurred after a court said that its presence did not violate "separation of church and state.

UNDER GOD UPHELD - A Freedom from Religion Foundation lawsuit against the Architect of the Capitol to prohibit 'In God We Trust' and the Pledge of Allegiance in the Capitol Visitor Center, has been tossed out by a court. The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin issued an order granting the motion to dismiss because the court found the FFRF lacked standing. While this is a victory it can be expected that the atheists will continue to file lawsuits. Oddly, atheist groups never file lawsuits against special privileges for Muslims at schools, airports and other public buildings.
