Changing party balance in the U.S. Senate

A year after President Barack Obama was sworn in, the political picture in the U.S. looks almost completely different – like in s reallignment. Rachel Maddow was mocking the Republican Party days after Election Day calling its decline a “free fall,” and other MSNBC hosts and guests called the GOP “small, regional and white” going as far as offering that it changes its ideology a little to the left for the sake of its survival. Such calls sound great if trends in life never change though. Continue reading

New report, same old story

FOX News is among the entire mainstream media that came up with a news report on Mr. Abdulmutallab. Click here, if you want to read it. What does this say to the ordinary U.S. taxpayers and people from all over the world who hardly expected such a blunder? Continue reading

Iran exposed again

After so many busts so far, we have witnessed a new embarrassment to Iran’s image at the international scene. Unlike in previous cases when the Islamic leadership made up excuses, most of which were twice as lame as they could be legitimate (the laptop possession denial, the timely confession about the underground facility), this time it hasn’t made a minimum effort to conceal the essence behind another unsuccessful operation.

Pat Buchanan surprised me with his Townhall column entry where he expressed support for President Obama’s stance on what is happening in Iran. I didn’t expect that, as on a Hardball issue several weeks ago he supported former Vice-President Richard Cheney on his speech against the same person he is now defending.

Something fishy in the New Haven case???

The reverse discrimination New Haven case that analysts are currently following is famous for one more interesting fact as well. It has often been discussed for the last couple of weeks that Appeals Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who was one of the judges at the appellate level who decided on that case, is at the top of many published lists of likely Obama [U.S. Supreme Court] nominees. She decided the case in favor of the City of New Haven or in other words – against the firefighters.

Shame on New Haven

New Haven, Connecticut, where Yale University is located, is the city that reached to the surprising decision not to promote firefighters to lieutenants or captains. The reason for that was because there were no African American and only two Hispanic firefighters who were likely to be made lieutenants or captains based on the results, as the New Haven Register mentioned two days ago. Are we witnessing a wrongfully perceived “politcal correctness”, “multiculturalism” and “tolerance”? Are we witnessing biased opinions from both sides?
