Commendable Commentary: 2008-12-14

by LukeAmerica2020
Most of us just don’t have the time to give even a cursory perusal to the abundance of conservative commentary and news, so we’re helping with the quest. Each Sunday we highlight issues and headlines from the week, commented by established political pundits.

The Democratic Culture of Corruption
Wednesday, December 10, 2008
Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosi can stop clucking now. For the last three years, Democratic leaders cheered GOP ethics woes. Dean accused Republicans of making “their culture of corruption the norm.” Pelosi touted cleanliness as a liberal virtue. But with the eye-popping pay-for-play and bribery case against Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich topping a year of nationwide Democratic scandals, the corruption chickens are coming home to roost.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald called the breadth and depth of charges against Blagojevich and his Democratic Chief of Staff John Harris “staggering.” That’s an understatement. Anything that breathed was a potential shakedown target. It’s the Chicago way. Democrat Blago’s so dirty he’d hit up a children’s hospital for money. Oh, wait. He’s accused of doing that, too.

Will Hillary Pressure Dubai Over Iran?
Friday, December 12, 2008
An op-ed by Orde Kittrie in The Wall Street Journal highlights Iran’s “economic Achilles’ heel” — its “extraordinary heavy dependence on imported gasoline.” Since more than half of Iran’s gasoline imports flow through Dubai, his call to action could pose the first test of Hillary Clinton’s independence from her husband’s business interests.

Minnesota Ballots: Land of 10,000 Fakes
Wednesday, December 10, 2008
What is the point of having a hand recount of ballots in the Minnesota Senate race if the Democratic secretary of state is going to use the election night totals in precincts where it will benefit Democrat Al Franken?

Either the hand recount produces a better, more accurate count, or there was no point to the state spending roughly $100,000 to conduct the hand recount in the first place.

Bill O’Reilly

Person of the Year
Saturday, December 13, 2008
This is the time of year when media types begin bloviating about the person who has most impacted the country in 2008. Well, there’s not much drama this time around because of Barack Obama’s amazing achievement. But there are other folks who have influenced us greatly, as well. Please consider the following list:

Congressman Barney Frank / Senator Chris Dodd / Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox:

These three were given the charge to watch the financial system in America, to make sure Wall Street greed-heads and other pernicious people did not hurt the folks. So tell me, how did they do?

Listen and Learn: Your Survival Depends On It.
Friday, December 12, 2008
Before I get into the meat of this column, I know Americans are hungry for information on the Obama citizenship crisis. This is my last update which contains the web sites for the various lawsuits so you can stay updated.

Since that update, Phil Berg’s injunction to stay the electoral college votes was denied by the U.S. Supreme Court. Part of Phil’s argument is contained in Dr. Edwin Vieira’s last column. Today is the day Cort Wrotnowski’s case is being heard in private by all nine U.S. Supreme Court Justices.

Roman Empire Outlasted U.S., But It Too Fell
Tuesday, December 9, 2008
Will the horrors unleashed by Islamic terrorists in Mumbai cause any second thoughts by those who are so anxious to start weakening the American security systems currently in place, including government interceptions of international phone calls and the holding of terrorists at Guantanamo?

Maybe. But never underestimate partisan blindness in Washington or in the mainstream media where, if the Bush administration did it, then it must be wrong.

Contrary to some of the more mawkish notions of what a government is supposed to be, its top job is the protection of the people. Nobody on 9/11 would have thought that we would see nothing comparable again in this country for seven long years

  1. Once again, thanks for your weekly round up. Most of these are on my bookmarks of political blogs, but I sometimes miss the latest columns. As you’ve said, it’s difficult to always keep up with it all.

  2. This is often a really good blog. I have already been back more than once during the last 7 days and wish to join your feed implementing Google but find it difficult to understand the way to do it accurately. Would you know of any instructions?
