ABC Reporter Arrested In Denver

Sounds like something you would expect from Chicago back in the 60’s. But no, this is Denver in 2008.

Police in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he and a camera crew were attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown Palace Hotel.

Oh. Where’s the ACLU when you need them?

ACLU Sues Santa Rosa School District, MRIOTD Winner

Yep. The intolerant left, in the form of the ACLU, is once again intimidated by a prayer at graduation, and by people (argh even teachers) professing to be religious. In the lawsuit, the ACLU fails to show where anyone was forced to participate in anything approaching religious belief.

The ACLU’s version of freedom of religion means you are not free to practice or even mention religion solely for the benefit of the intolerant, who feel it their duty to deny us of that freedom so that they don’t have to be exposed to it. Qualifying the ACLU to receive the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award.

Privacy, Security, Honesty, Obama And Biden

Taking a cursory look around the blogosphere, there seems to be more information coming out about the Democratic Presidential ticket.

From GIZMODO, is a report about Sen. Joe Biden that should make all Internet users pay attention. And it has to do with IE8. It has security features that Biden does not like. Curious that he is against the Patriot Act when he is all about taking away your privacy and security. H/T D=S

From the American Thinker comes some information about Barack Obama’s shifting positions on gun control issues. Specifically, the right of a law abiding private citizen to have a concealed weapons permit. He speaks with forked tongue. One could call it a lie if you were to be so bold.

Obama’s flip flops on guns is especially dizzying, but simply par for the course for Obama when it comes to projecting “misleading moderation” as Freddoso calls it. And unless the voter takes the time to dig into what Obama really thinks, they probably walk away with the opinion that Obama is not really the far left liberal he truly is.

While on the subject of honesty and Barack Obama, you will recall Barack saying that he barely knew William Ayers, the unrepentant terrorist. You know, the guy who not only was his neighbor but sold him property adjacent to Barack’s property for hundreds of thousands of dollars below market value. Naturally, this kind of stuff happens all the time between people that barely know each other. Doesn’t it?

Barack Obama made it appear in public statements that he barely knew Ayers. Here is what he said at the Philadelphia debate in April about his relationship with the terrorist:

This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who’s a professor of English in Chicago who I know and who I have not received some official endorsement from. He’s not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis. And the notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was eight years old, somehow reflects on me and my values doesn’t make much sense, George.

Then there is the ‘Chicago Annenberg Challenge.’ This is an organization founded by Ayers where Barack Obama served as President of the Board, and William Ayers headed up the operations arm. Even though he barely knows him. As documents relating to this organization are examined, I would expect to see more contradictions between Obama’s statements and the facts. This much is evident so far . . .

The UIC records show that Obama and Ayers attended board meetings, retreats and at least one news conference together as the education program got under way. The two continued to attend meetings together during the 1995-2001 operation of the program, records show.

The Democrat(ic) party is finally bearing the consequences of having an improperly vetted candidate. Details at 11.
