Radical in the White House - Kathryn Jean Lopez
LOPEZ: What does it mean for American history that we have a socialist as president right now?
KURTZ: The liberalizing changes of the Sixties have borne fruit in a new generation, yet they have been incomplete. The Democrats have moved left, but resistance to those changes has driven Republicans to the right. The government sector is so large now that the fundamental character of the American system is at stake. We will either move incrementally over the line toward European-style socialism, or pull substantially back. The battle will be fought out over the next two years, with the coming presidential election determining the winner. A Republican victory does not decide the question. It only sets up the larger battle Obama has been planning all along. We don't yet know who will win.

About 3,000 people including Secret Service agents, US government officials and journalists would accompany the President. Several officials from the White House and US security agencies are already here for the past one week with helicopters, a ship and high-end security instruments.
Barack Obama is No Failure by Doug Patton
Obama does, indeed, seem hell-bent on serving only four years in office—but the word "failure" may not apply to this man after all. This president came into office with the most aggressively socialist agenda of any chief executive since Franklin Roosevelt. His goals were simple but radical:
- to diminish the image of the United States abroad as a sort of penance for what he perceives as our past sins on the international stage;
- to redistribute the wealth of the nation, thereby punishing the productive and rewarding the dependent;
- to grow the size and scope of federal authority and power beyond even the wildest dreams of FDR himself.
In other words, as he told us five days before his 2008 election, his goal was to "fundamentally transform America." By these criteria, Obama is anything but a failure. Even if he is a one term president, he has done damage that may never be repaired.

Black author asks: Is Obama truly Christian?
When asked who Jesus was to him, Obama responded: Jesus is an historical figure for me, and he's also a bridge between God and man, in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher. And he's also a wonderful teacher. I think it's important for all of us, of whatever faith, to have teachers in the flesh and also teachers in history.
Revisionist Recitation: Obama Omits 'Creator' While Quoting Declaration
Two days before the country was set to celebrate Constitution Day, President Obama decided to invoke the words of another founding document: the Declaration of Independence. Except he changed the words. Towards the end of a speech on September 15 to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, Obama began quoting the famous "rights" line from the founding document. But partway through, he omitted where those rights come from: a Creator.

Tony Blair's Amazing "Journey" to the White House
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has carved out for himself a role at Barack Obama's right hand - uniquely for a non-American politician. In its coming issue out Friday, DEBKA-Net-Weekly looks behind Tony Blair's astonishing rise to the top of the White House team of policy-makers, especially on the Middle East and Iran. His popularity in Washington is matched inversely by his falling stakes at home and in Europe.

Feds blink in standoff with Christian colleges
Colorado Christian University President Bill Armstrong has told WND that the rules proposed by the Education Department are the "greatest threat to academic freedom in our lifetime." Obama's Department of Education – where Secretary Arne Duncan appointed a longtime homosexual activist who was part of the violent Act Up organization to head his "safe schools" office – has recommended that all colleges be required to have a state license. Critics say the license could enable the government to have a say in curriculum, graduation requirements and other issues.

Welcome, Senate Conservatives - Senator DeMint
Remember what the voters back home want—less government and more freedom. Don't let your re-election become more important than your job. You've campaigned long and hard for the opportunity to go to Washington and restore freedom in America. People will try to convince you to moderate conservative positions and break campaign promises, all in the name of winning the next race. Resist the temptation to do so. There are worse things than losing an election—like breaking your word to voters. Tea party Republicans were elected to go to Washington and save the country—not be co-opted by the club. So put on your boxing gloves. The fight begins today.
The Establishment Strikes Back
In the 2010-midterm elections, the tea party movement has played the role of the Rebellion. But the Empire is not played by the Democrats.The real blindside was the tea party's dismantling of the Republican Establishment throughout the primary season.
Rove wanted conservatives to relearn what the Establishment has been trumpeting since Barry Goldwater's 1964 failed presidential run. The lesson is that all candidates must meet Establishment approval or they are sure to lose. While election-winners from Reagan to Rubio have proven the theory false, if O'Donnell can become a new generation's Goldwater, then the Establishment can use her race to regain the control lost during the 2010 primaries.
The Establishment has repeatedly sought to undermine Alaska’s Joe Miller and help incumbent Senator (and confidante of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell) Lisa Murkowski. Why fight conservative candidates when the Ronald Reagan model is more successful than the John McCain/Bob Dole/George H. W. Bush model? The answer is control. And so the Establishment strikes back. Entrenched blue-blood Republicans hope to reap the electoral benefits of the tea party movement while simultaneously seeking to discredit it. In the aftermath of the 2010 midterms, it has become clear that the fight for America's future will pass directly through the heart of the Republican Establishment.
Elections have consequences: Republicans could control U.S. House until 2022
Crouere: Last Chance for GOP
As Republicans enjoy a massive victory this week; party leaders should not misunderstand the message of the public. They should not feel too comfortable about their large margin of victory. Indeed, the GOP will be on a very short leash. If they return to the big government Republican policies of George W. Bush, their reign of power will be incredibly short-lived.
