Barack Obama’s Gallup approval rating of 52 percent may well be lower at this stage of his presidency than any US leader in recent times with the exception of Bill Clinton. But he is still worshipped with messiah-like adoration at the United Nations, and is considerably more popular with many of the 192 members of the UN than he is with the American people. (SNIP) He is the first American president who has made an art form out of apologizing for the United States, which he has done on numerous occasions on foreign soil, from Strasbourg to Cairo.

These asshats are laughing it up as he dutifully follows orders and makes this country look like a laughingstock in front of the entire world…ed]
If you are confused by the first nine months of the Obama administration, take solace that there is at least a pattern. The president, you see, thinks America is a university and that he is our campus president. Keep that in mind, and almost everything else makes sense. Obama went to Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard without much of a break, taught at the University of Chicago, and then surrounded himself with academics, first in his stint at community organizing and then when he went into politics. It shows. In his limited experience, those who went to Yale or Harvard are special people, and the Ivy League environment has been replicated in the culture of the White House.

Mark Lloyd is the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s Chief Diversity Officer, a.k.a. the Diversity Czar. And he has in a recently discovered bit of archive audio goodness detailed his rather disturbing perspective on race, power and the American system. This is of course in addition to Lloyd’s rather disturbing perspective on the First Amendment.

To hear world leaders and others addressing the United Nations Summit on Climate Change, the threat could not be more real and the need more urgent to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. (SNIP) Each foreign leader in town has a convoy of vehicles. Some of them, like President Obama’s motorcade, are 20-to-30 vehicles in length. It’s so long – it seems that when the front of it reaches the U.N., the back end is still back at his hotel.

Sarah Palin, in what was billed as her first speech overseas, spoke on Wednesday to Asian bankers, investors and fund managers. A number of people who heard the speech in a packed hotel ballroom, which was closed to the media, said Mrs. Palin spoke from notes for 90 minutes and that she was articulate, well-prepared and even compelling. “The speech was wide-ranging, very balanced, and she beat all expectations,” said Doug A. Coulter, head of private equity in the Asia-Pacific region for LGT Capital Partners. “She didn’t sound at all like a far-right-wing conservative. [Of course she was articulate, well prepared and compelling, the jerks in the state run media didn’t have the opportunity to edit and hack any videotapes before airing them to a braindead public.

ACORN’s hiring of a Boston attorney to conduct an internal review of its practices was met with skepticism Tuesday as a California lawmaker called for congressional hearings of the community organizing group over use of taxpayer money. “ACORN has already been down this path before,” said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., in a written statement, arguing that an internal review it conducted last year did not successfully root out problems that continue to bedevil the group. Controversy over the community organizer’s practices erupted in recent weeks after a series of hidden-camera videos were released showing ACORN workers appearing to offer tax advice to a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute. “A self-run investigation is not a substitute for an independent investigation,” said Issa, the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

One of the subplots to the health care debate I’ve been following is the cozy relationship between AARP and the Obama administration, as the group has thrown its full-throated support behind the Democrats’ health care push even though their membership comes from the age group most opposed to Democratic health care proposals. Today, House Republicans have issued a report providing evidence that AARP is in a position to receive tens of millions of dollars in “kickbacks” if Democratic health care legislation becomes law. [The Øbama administration will bribe any group in order to get them to hop on board the governmental take over of our health care system program. The AARP is selling out its membership for the sake of profits which is ironic since Øbama and the Democrats constantly rail against virtually any company earning a profit these days…ed]
If you want to know why Americans are so fearful of a government takeover of the health-care system, take a look at the results of a new Gallup poll on government waste released Sept. 15. One question posed was: “Of every tax dollar that goes to Washington, D.C., how many cents of each dollar would you say is wasted?” Gallup found that the mean response was 50 cents. With Uncle Sam spending just shy of $4 trillion this year, that means the public believes that $2 trillion is wasted. In a separate poll released on Monday, Gallup found that nearly twice as many Americans believe that there is “too much government regulation of business and industry” as believe there is “too little” (45% to 24%).

Only two in 10 Americans say their health insurance coverage and the quality of the health care they receive will improve if a bill passes Congress this year, despite President Obama’s promises to improve the system for those with and without insurance. A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken after the president’s speech to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 9 found that more than seven in 10 of those polled say their costs and their care will either stay the same or get worse if the legislation Obama and congressional Democrats are pushing becomes law this year. “It’ll definitely get worse because they’re going to have to find the money to pay for all this stuff,” says Janene Sholes, 48, of Tampa. “And where are they going to get it from? Us.” [Even the lefty USA Today rag has to admit that Americans do NOT want this Øbamacare crap shoved down their throats but does Øbama or Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid give a damn about what we want?

U.S. President Barack Obama told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas Tuesday that he was dissatisfied with their recent foot-dragging on getting Israeli-Palestinian talks restarted. A senior U.S. administration source Tuesday told Haaretz that “during the tripartite meeting Obama strongly expressed his impatience.” The source said the meeting was “businesslike” but not cordial. Netanyahu and Abbas voiced their opinions but did not attack. Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, National Security Adviser Uzi Arad and Netanyahu adviser Yitzhak Molcho also attended the 45-minute meeting. [Let’s see, just about a year and a half ago this Øbama guy was nothing more than some no name backbencher Senator who’s never held a real job in his life and who always had doors opened to him not based on merit but based on the color of his skin.

Oil imports now count for almost 80 percent of American consumption and cost some $300 to $400 billion yearly. They wreck our trade balance, subsidize many of our enemies, and add to our already mountainous foreign debt. (SNIP) Analysts are already forecasting 100-dollar-a-barrel oil within a year. Yet the Obama administration is still blocking offshore drilling in America—even though it was approved by Congress last year—and wants to raise taxes on oil companies. Several years are needed to get major new production on line, even without anticipated environmental lawsuits designed to stymie or at least harass and delay any drilling of new wells off of America’s east and west coasts.

Gov. Paterson’s wife — emotionally stunned at President Obama’s request that her husband not run for another term — ripped into him today, saying that it’s “very unfair” the president asked New York’s “first African-American governor” not to seek office. “You never heard of that before,” Michelle Paterson, in her first comments on the situation, said following a luncheon in Midtown. “David’s the first African-American governor in the state of New York and he’s being asked to get out of the race.

Cap and trade is back in the news. By the end of this month, Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) is expected to unveil new legislation along the lines of the Waxman-Markey bill, which passed the House on June 26. That bill contains 397 new regulations. One of them would affect almost everyone who buys or sells a home. If Waxman-Markey becomes law, homes for sale that qualify as “federally related transactions” — which is almost all of them — would be required to undergo an environmental inspection.

Speaker Pelosi is backing away from a deal she cut with centrists to advance health reform, said a source familiar with talks. Pelosi’s decision to move away from the agreement that was made with a group of Blue Dogs to get the bill out of committee would steer the healthcare legislation back to the left as she prepares for a floor vote. Pelosi is planning to include a government-run public option in the House version of the healthcare bill.

Google is developing an Internet-based power monitor designed to monitor energy usage inside homes. As a result, the meter will provide utilities and any government regulators access to data on a household’s energy footprint and carbon footprint, Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert reports. (SNIP) Named the “Google PowerMeter,” the software is intended to measure the precise amount of energy a house consumes and provide an accounting that lists by household location and device that consumes the electricity. “An easy next step would be for government regulators to demand more household energy efficiency or a reduction in carbon emissions,” Corsi wrote. “‘Energy offenders’ could be charged substantial fines, with the possibility that the truly recalcitrant could be deemed ‘energy criminals’ subject to severe consequences.” He noted, “As always, government extermination of civil liberties first arrives with a helping hand.” [More reasons why I hate liberals with a passion…ed]
