It’s Up!


The new blog is up at www.conservative-wanderer.com. Please update your bookmarks, subscriptions, and so on (subscriptions won’t automatically transfer over to the new blog).

This will (hopefully) be the last post here… unless the new blog implodes, but it’s looking pretty darned stable right now. :)

Big Changes Coming!


Just wanted to give all my loyal readers a heads-up about some changes I’ll be making to the blog in the near future. You may see a few less posts than usual until I get everything moved over — depends on what news stories grab my attention and how much time I have to put into the changes.

Feds Threatening To Confiscate Musicians’ Instruments


In the history of really bad ideas, this one’s got to be close to the top.

Lawmakers are scrambling to save the summer concert season from federal agents poised to seize the instruments of rock and country stars because the wood used to make them may have been illegally harvested–and without their knowledge.

GOP Readying Plans For ObamaCare Ruling


Prior planning prevents poor performance, and the GOP seems to be taking that rule to heart while waiting for the Supreme Court to rule on ObamaCare.

If the law is upheld, Republicans will take to the floor to tear out its most controversial pieces, such as the individual mandateand requirements that employers provide insurance or face fines.

If the law is partially or fully overturned they’ll draw up bills to keep the popular, consumer-friendly portions in place — like allowing adult children to remain on parents’ health care plans until age 26, and forcing insurance companies to provide coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. Ripping these provisions from law is too politically risky, Republicans say.

Let The Firestorm Begin: Literary Promotional Booklet Claims Obama Born In Kenya


Please note, like Andrew Breitbart, I have never been a “birther.” However, I believe that Obama has through much of his adult life fictionalized — that is, lied about — many things about himself. It is in that spirit that I present this:

Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

The booklet, which was distributed to “business colleagues” in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.

It also promotes Obama’s anticipated first book, Journeys in Black and White–which Obama abandoned, later publishing Dreams from My Father instead.

At Least Three House GOP Offices Burgled


Hmmm… crimes of opportunity, or deliberately targeting Republicans (emphasis in original)?

“The evidence points to someone with access to my office, and other offices in the Capitol complex, as the perpetrator,” freshman Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., surmised in a letter to the House’s Office of the Chief Administrative Officer.

Other offices hit—many of which handle information dealing with issues of national security, though nothing of a sensitive nature was reportedly taken—include those of Reps. Jerry Lewis, R-Calif., and Jon Runyan, R-N.J.; the Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security; and the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Those looking for some common link might note that Lewis serves on Appropriations; Gowdy sits on Oversight; and Runyan is a member of the Armed Services Committee. Also, staffers on the House Oversight Subcommittee on Health Care, District of Columbia, Census, and the National Archives, which Gowdy chairs, reported that $200 of their money went missing during business hours.
