Lies and Half Truths From Obama About Oil And Gas

Not too long after Barack Obama received large amounts of undisclosed money for his inauguration parties from Chevron and Exxon, Obama’s State Department released a draft assessment claiming that the Keystone XL pipeline would have no environmental impact. Accurate economic and environmental assessments seem to have less influence on the approval of special waivers for the Keystone XL pipeline, however, than large gifts of money to Barack Obama. [...]

New Washington DC Government Discriminates Against Seculars at Inauguration

The Secular Coalition for America informs us by e-mail yesterday that when it sought to have a humanist celebrant included at Mayor Vincent Gray’s first inaugural event, “One City … Praying Together,” they were denied. Representatives of American religious groups were given seats at the event.

Arrest Bush, You Weren't New Enough for the Media to Cover

Why Was Anti-FISA Demonstration at the Inauguration Banned?

When I arrived at the southwest corner of 9th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue early on the morning of January 20, 2009, I looked expectantly across the street to the northwest corner of 9th & Pennsylvania, where I expected to see Ben Masel holding a “Stop Government Spying” banner. Masel is a veteran inaugural protester on [...]

Good Government Prayers

If people really believe that the source of good government is God, and not the actual people in government, then I propose an experiment to test their hypothesis. Instead of having senators, and congressional representatives, and judges, and Executive Branch officials show up to work, let’s have them just stay home and pray to God for the next year. [...]

Crushes to get into Inaugural Route

At Constitution & 14th, people were being crushed against fences, the crowd was so thick. [...]
