Well, I’m pretty sure that the O-basturd doesn’t have an Israeli flag in the oval office. But a bust of Karl Marx? If he doesn’t have it in his office, he sure has it in his head…..
Just what we would expect from this innocuous man-child president who sees little need for our imperfect Constitution.

Congress about to limit political speech of bloggers?
The same sloppy legislative writing that created so many unintended consequences in ObamaCare also plagues the DISCLOSE Act, the effort in Congress to tighten spending rules in the wake of theÂ Citizens United decision â€” and that’s theÂ generous take on the situation.Â Â Reason’s Bradley Smith and Jeff Patch warn that the perhaps-unintended consequences of legislative language will allow the FEC to regulate political speech online.Â The fact that media entities like the New York Times have specific exemptions built into the bill makes the intent, or lack thereof, rather murky: Â Â Ed Morrissey from Hot Air has more
Uncovered Audio: Obama’s Regulatory Czar Pushes Plan for Legally Controlling Information
Disturbing audio has emerged of White House information czar Cass Sunstein, who in a previous white paper called for banning “conspiracy theories,” demanding that websites be mandated by law to link to opposing information or that pop ups containing government propaganda be forcibly included on political blogs.
In an audio excerpt of an interview, Sunstein discusses how conservative websites should provide links to liberal websites and vice versa or even how political blogs should be made to include pop ups that show “a quick argument for a competing view”.
Sunstein said that if this system couldn’t be implemented voluntarily, “Congress should hold hearings about mandates,” which would legally force people to dilute their own free speech. The Harvard Professor also said that blogs should be forced to list a random draw of 25 popular websites, such as CNN.com. VisiontoAmerica
Ms. Kagan’s First Amendment work repeatedly promotes the idea that speech rights are granted by government rather than inherent in the God-given nature of man.
So, I guess that speech can be free, and free from political correctness, when it is contemplative, philosophical, and oh-so-academic; but when there is actual politics involved, The State has every right to control such discourse.
It turns out that, at the very moment Ms. Kagan was pushing aggressively to remove military recruiters from the Harvard Law School campus during her tenure as its dean, she was very supportive of having what amounted to Saudi recruiters ensconced there for the purpose of enlisting some of the nation’s finest young lawyers to work for the industry known as Shariah-Compliant Finance (SCF).
