Sunday’s Articles of Interest

Today we present the “Best of the Web” series of articles in lieu of our normal Sunday article.  Once again this week, Barack Hussein Obama gives us more ammunition against him than we can possibly write about ourselves:

Report: U.S. to block Iran sanctions at G8 Summit:

According to officials, sanctions against Iran are expected to top the G8's agenda. Sources are also predicting a pointed debate between the heads of the industrialized nations over an appropriate response to Iranian authorities' suppression of reformist demonstrations in Iran led by Mir Hossein Mousavi and other Iranian opposition leaders.

However, diplomatic sources in New York reported that American officials are working behind the scenes to prevent new sanctions from being imposed against Iran.

Editors Note: It’s all over but for the official surrender to Iran.

Experts Find Soviet Parts in North Korean Missile:

WASHINGTON —  With concerns rising about a possible North Korean long-range missile test this weekend, two independent scientists say the regime may be using an old Soviet ballistic missile to boost a rocket capable of reaching the West Coast of the United States.

North Korea is not known to have nuclear warheads and faces years of research and testing before building such a reliable weapon.

But the scientists say that if North Korea does have such a Russian-made ballistic missile in its arsenal, it could modify the rocket into a two-stage missile that could reach Seattle, Wash., carrying a 900-kilogram warhead, or San Francisco carrying a 700-kilogram charge.

Editors Note: Knew it all along.  Does it really surprise anyone that one Communist regime (Putin/Russia) is propping up and helping another?  The old Communist saying “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” sure applies here.  We’re just waiting for the “revelation” that North Korea is doing China’s bidding to finally be revealed.  Don’t you wish Washington DC was as smart as those of us in fly-over country who exercise such common sense?

Honduras Leaves OAS After Body Decries “Coup”

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) — Honduras rebuffed demands by the international community to reinstate President Manuel Zelaya and pulled out of the Organization of American States, thrusting the poor Central American nation deeper into political crisis and isolation.

Zelaya was traveling in Central America but planned to return to Honduras on Sunday, according to Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega. Honduras' interim government has said it will arrest Zelaya if he returns, setting up a potentially volatile showdown.

In a letter to Insulza read on state television Friday night, interim Honduran President Roberto Micheletti wrote that "the OAS is a political organization, not a court, and it can't judge us."

"The government rejects the attempts of the OAS to impose unilateral resolutions," said the letter read by deputy foreign minister Martha Lorena Alvarado.

Editors Note: This is probably the only media account that we’ve read today that got it right.  Other media accounts state Zelaya’s removal from office was an “illegal coup” and that the OAS “suspended” Honduras.  Both claims are incorrect.  As we stated on Monday, earlier this week (Click for entire article):

Anytime one finds themselves agreeing with Hugo Chavez, they’d best check the premise of their agreement.  Therein lies the illogic of the Obama Administration in refusing to “meddle” in one country’s affairs, while directly meddling in another’s.  The illogic here is stunning. 

We were right on Monday and we’re right now.  Obama is on the wrong side of history, and the Lamestream media’s attempts to distort the truth cannot hide the fact that Zelaya’s actions were illegal according to Honduras’ Constitution, and his subsequent removal from office and expulsion from Honduras actually protected Honduras’ citizens and Constitution.  Obama’s backing of a Communist wanna-be Hugo Chavez in Honduras reveals Obama’s true intentions for the United States.  Sometimes pictures say a thousand words, does anyone else see the resemblance between Obama and Chavez?

Attorney General To Classify Pro-Life, Pro-Gun American’s as Terrorists

An amendment to a bill swiftly moving through the US Congress will allow the Obama Administration's Attorney General to classify Americans as domestic terrorists if they are pro-life, pro-gun and anti-big government.

Impeached Florida judge -- now a Democrat Party member of the House of Representatives -- Rep. Alcee Hastings introduced what some claim is a disturbing piece of legislation. Hasting's amendment calls for the Attorney General to have discretion over who is called a terrorist and what groups will be treated as terrorist groups.

Editors Note: Classify me as a terrorist and let’s get this party started, Mr. Attorney General.

Wall Street Journal: Al Franken Stole The Election


The Minnesota Supreme Court yesterday declared Democrat Al Franken the winner of last year’s disputed Senate race, and Republican incumbent Norm Coleman’s gracious concession at least spares the state any further legal combat. The unfortunate lesson is that you don’t need to win the vote on Election Day as long as your lawyers are creative enough to have enough new or disqualified ballots counted after the fact. 

AlFranken  What Mr. Franken understood was that courts would later be loathe to overrule decisions made by the canvassing board, however arbitrary those decisions were. He was right.

Editors Note: Al Franken’s lawyers knew the Communist rule in challenging the results: It’s not who casts the votes, it’s who counts the votes.  With ACORN firmly in the pocket of the the current Barack Hussein Obama administration, one can only expect this problem to become larger until Republicans or dare we say “We The People” learn to fight back against this corruption.
