There’s no doubt that President Barack Obama’s Dept. of Justice has launched an all-out war on the states, largely in the interest of concentrating all powers in the hands of federal government bureaucrats.

Attorney General Eric Holder and other liberals are up in arms because some states are asking voters for a photo ID and in some cases retooling early vote schedules.
Liberals have accused various states—my home state of Florida is among them—of wanting to disenfranchise minority votes.
In comments about a recent column I wrote for Examiner about state voting laws, one reader said such laws are motivated by “implicit racism.”
Most media are currently obsessed with digging up whatever on the Republican presidential candidates. One blogger from The Washington Post even Tweeted an appeal for followers to help dig up something about former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, the current GOP frontrunner.
Gingrich is the one person President Barack Obama would not like to debate, for obvious reasons.
As progressives chat and Tweet in their leftwing news cubicles across the land, political relations from Obama’s past are back in the news although most of the stories haven't run above the fold.
Most of us believe challenges to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—some call it ObamaCare but I call it ObamaNotCare—are headed to the Supreme Court. Many of us believe Justice Elena Kagan should step aside, the act of recusal aimed at the public good.
Public watchdog groups Judicial Watch and Media Research Center have requested documents and messages originating during Kagan’s stint as President Barack Obama’s Solicitor General. The House Judiciary committee has also requested these materials.
In an astonishing act of obstruction, the Department of Justice led by scandal-plagued Attorney General Eric Holder has balked at many of these requests.
A number of newspapers provide a regular feature whereby a columnist aims at clearing up facts related to a political claim. In my home city, The Florida Times-Union column for this purpose is ‘Fact Check.’ In the Thursday paper, Fact Check takes on a reader's question about New Black Panther Party members intimidating Philadelphia voters in a single precinct on November 4, 2008.
But there's a serious omission of facts by The St. Petersburg Times who could have rendered a one-word answer to that question about the NBPP voter intimidation case.
For more than a year, I followed the case of U.S. v. Ike Brown. That case, prosecuted and won by the Justice Dept. under President George W. Bush, related to a man in Noxubee County, Miss.
J. Christian Adams, writing for Pajamas Media, said, ~ “Brown was the head of the Democratic Party in Noxubee County, a majority black county. The party ran the Democratic primaries, which served as de facto general elections, and Brown made no secret about his desire to see every government office in the county held by a black officeholder. Brown ran a Tammany Hall-style political operation. During one election, he literally stuffed illegal ballots he knew were marked for black candidates through an optical scanner in front of a crowd of angry citizens shouting provisions of Mississippi law at him.
“You ain’t dealing with Mississippi law, this is Ike Brown’s law,” he replied.
Brown organized teams of notary publics to roam the county collecting absentee ballots. In many cases, the notaries cast the ballots themselves instead of the voters.”~
A rather remarkable admission from the most influential blogger in Democrat-allied politics has come forth. Markos Moulitsas at Daily Kos wrote, “I have just published a report by three statistics wizards showing, quite convincingly, that the weekly Research 2000 State of the Nation poll we ran the past year and a half was likely bunk.”
Moulitsas also known as ‘Kos,’ claims Daily Kos was ‘defrauded’ by the polling company, and he renounced any post based exclusively on the company’s polling. I’m thinking he might want to add a widget that shows on every page because Kos is essentially a blog mill.
