Soros funded groups bankroll effort to destroy conservative bloggers

A story that is making its way around Internet blog sites today alleges that George Soros funded organizations are bankrolling a concerted effort to destroy conservative bloggers.

The chatter on social networking sites concerning this story reached a fever pitch Friday. Nationally known writers, columnists, and Internet news sites reported bombshell information indicating that the Soros connected groups are funding an effort to litigate conservative bloggers into silence.

At the center of the controversy is Brett Kimberlin, a convicted felon who spent 17 years in a federal prison for perpetrating a weeklong spree of bombings in Speedway, Indiana in 1978.

Speculation inside the beltway focuses on Hillary Clinton

Although she has stated that she intends to leave politics at the end of Obama's first term, Hillary Clinton is the focus of much speculation on the part of pundits inside the beltway regarding the 2012 presidential election.

Sensing that Obama is increasingly vulnerable, many top Democrats dream of a scenario where Hillary is placed on the ticket, either as the presidential nominee or the vice presidential running mate.

In the first instance the scenario would mean an announcement by Obama, like Lyndon Johnson in 1968, that he is withdrawing from his re-election bid. The second instance would mean that Vice President Joe Biden either would withdraw from the ticket or be replaced in a surprise decision by Obama.

New Mexico Senate race an example of Republican rift

While it is much too early to describe the Republican Party as a divided party, the race in New Mexico for the GOP nomination for an open U.S. Senate seat is an example of a rift between the leadership establishment and conservatives.

Issa might not have votes to pursue contempt charge against Holder

An article published by The Hill on Tuesday indicates that U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., might not have the votes to pursue contempt charges against Attorney General Eric Holder.

Issa chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that has been investigating the role of Holder and the Justice Department in the Fast and Furious scandal that has rocked the Obama Administration.

Holder has been under fire ever since he refused to cooperate with the Issa committee. Hundreds of subpoenaed documents have been withheld from the committee by Holder, documents that Issa says are necessary to conduct the investigation.

Troubled Obama campaign turns to Rahm Emanuel

Emanuel is the former chief of staff for the Obama White House.

The Obama campaign has been plagued with a series of mistakes that have given some political observers fodder with which to portray the campaign as amateurish, disjointed, and inept.

Market analyst says US in an economic 'war'

A major market analyst said Sunday that the United States is engaged in an economic "war" as a consequence of a deadly collusion between politicians and large corporations that have defrauded the public for the past 30 years.

The danger that is inherent in such a war, he says, lies in the fact that not only has the U.S. economy been falsely inflated by the fraud but so has Europe and most of the advanced nations of the world.

Analyst Karl Denninger, who is the brain child behind the Internet site The Market Ticker, states that the economy has been rigged by major power brokers in politics and business who wished to take the competition out of the markets. The motivation for the move was to insure that everyone would win and that no one would lose, or at least not enough to ruin them.

However, this is not the way capitalism works. Competition is the centerpiece of the capitalistic system of economics, meaning that one must risk losing in order to position himself to win. If someone else can offer the same goods and services at a lower price and with a higher quality, then it is that person who wins. The others either lose or find a way to cut costs and improve quality so that they can remain competitive.

Senator says he wants to prevent government from seizing guitars at border

U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., stated after a meeting Friday with music industry and wood import officials that he wants to prevent the government from seizing guitars made with banned wood when musicians travel to other countries to perform.

Artists are currently leaving their best guitars at home when they travel, unless they take paperwork with them that proves their instruments were not made with banned wood -- a provision of an amendment to the century-old Lacey Act which prevents the sale of feathers from rare birds.

Alexander, along with U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., co-sponsored an amendment in 2008 to the Lacey Act that would add the wood from certain forests around the world to the list of banned items.

But the manner in which the Obama Administration is interpreting the amended law is raising eyebrows and creating havoc for one guitar maker, Gibson Guitars of Nashville, Tenn.
