Surprising conspiracy by the Girl Scouts

You thought that yesteryear's threat of creeping communist cells inside the USA was the worst conspiracy in our history? Or maybe you think that foreign terrorists pose the greatest threat ever.

Another apology & another disaster

WASHINGTON - On Feb. 20, a NATO-Afghan security team at the Parwan Detention Center - adjacent to the U.S.-run Bagram Air Field, north of Kabul - began destroying files, books and documents from the detention facility library. The printed material was being burned because it contained handwritten coded messages being passed among Taliban and al-Qaida detainees. Afghan security personnel retrieved charred pages from several copies of the Quran and other Islamic holy texts. The following day, angry crowds rioted outside NATO installations in Kabul and elsewhere around Afghanistan.

Gavin Newsom: Delusions of grandeur?

California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom began a San Francisco Chronicle editorial board meeting last week by complaining about his job. In states such as Texas and Maryland, gubernatorial nominees choose their lieutenant governors. Those officers, Newsom argued, are "empowered," as each is "truly a lieutenant." Under the status quo with Gov. Jerry Brown, Newsom said, "we're at each other's throats; nothing gets done." But: "If they run together, then they have a team. Otherwise, get rid of the position."

HBO’s upcoming Palin pollution

Sarah Palin's top aides held a conference call to denounce the forthcoming HBO movie "Game Change," which like any ultraliberal media production, knocks Palin as a mentally imbalanced moron. Reporters are already underlining the Palin aides haven't seen the movie.

What have you done for me lately?

As I watched Wednesday night's GOP presidential primary debate on CNN, I couldn't help but notice that the four surviving Republicans are old news. Three have been out of power for a political half-life. Mitt Romney hasn't been governor of Massachusetts for five years. Likewise, Rick Santorum hasn't been in the Senate since January 2007. Newt Gingrich hasn't been in Congress since 1999. If they weren't campaigning day and night, you'd think they were retired.

Global warming and earthly lies

Peter Gleick, president of the Pacific Institute and a prominent climate change expert, admitted Monday that he lied. Gleick pretended to be someone else in order to obtain documents from the Heartland Institute, which has challenged mainstream scientific consensus on the role of man in global warming.

Obama’s class-warfare, tax-the-rich budget

If you shake out the Obama budget in terms of bold headlines, it's really a class-warfare, tax-the-rich budget. Layer upon layer of tax hikes are piled on successful investors, small-business owners and corporations.

Occupy Oakland, violence optional

Occupy Oakland activists have filed a lawsuit against the city and are seeking damages. The American Civil Liberties Union-backed suit argues that protesters are engaged in "peaceful expressive activity" and that Oakland police have used "excessive force" that has inflicted "mental stress" on activists. The lawsuit also complains that police have not warned activists sufficiently before dispersal orders. Thus, Occupy protesters "did not have an opportunity to gather their belongings and leave the camp without being arrested or harmed."

Obama’s war on religious liberty

Welcome to the real ObamaCare, whereby a handful of leftists in Washington, D.C., impose the views of their big-money donors on more than 300 million Americans. If the Obama mandate for contraception remains intact, then liberals will next demand that Americans pay for other objectionable items that are not really medical care.

Incredible, shrinking Obamacare

Obamacare is a fiasco. Why don't the media acknowledge that? And it's fair to ask: Why don't they ridicule it? After all, in the Bush years, the press reran President George W. Bush in front of the "Mission Accomplished" banner time and again, did they not? Perhaps Joe Biden at the signing ceremony saying into an open mic that this was a "big (blanking) deal" would suffice.

Cry a river over California’s drought

As a Californian, I have not gotten too much sympathy from friends and family about our rotten weather this winter. Yes, I said rotten weather. It's been incredibly pleasant- except for a few times when the temperature crept up to 90 - but we've hardly had any rain.

Death-row-optional death row series

Actor-turned-producer Robert Redford boasts that his new CNN series, "Death Row Stories," is "about the search for justice and truth." That's odd, because the series has aired three episodes and they're all about victims of prosecutorial abuse. So far, nobody's really guilty. The second episode features a woman who never spent a night on death row.

How about banning bossy billionaires?

Of course Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg is right to point out that "bossy," the other B-word, is often used to discourage girls - and later women - from becoming leaders. "Words like bossy send a message: don't raise your hand or speak up," says the website of her "Ban Bossy" campaign. "By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys - a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead."

California GOP halts orgy of panic

Even though it was in Burlingame, one might have expected the California Republican Party's weekend convention to feel a bit like the last days of Pompeii.
