Contributions from Google’s employees were the third largest source of campaign contributions for the president’s reelection effort.

DeMint Resigning From The Senate
South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint announced today that he will resign his Senate seat in January to become the next president of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative Washington, D.C. think tank. Senator DeMint is one of the conservative movement’s staunchest allies in Washington, and his leadership in the Senate will be sorely missed.

Big Government Meets Big Business
We’re 26 days away from the fiscal cliff. Monday afternoon, the White House rejected a deal offered by the House leadership. Not much happened yesterday. So you would think President Obama would be interested in talking with Speaker Boehner today.
Instead the president took his arguments for higher taxes to the Business Roundtable — the presidents and CEOs of many of the world’s largest multinational corporations. It was a meeting of big government and big business.

A Laughable Proposal
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner went to Capitol Hill yesterday to present President Obama’s plan for resolving the fiscal cliff. With just 31 days left until virtually every household in America is hit with massive tax increases, you would think Geithner would have a serious proposal to offer Republican leaders. He didn’t.
But don’t take my word for it. Here’s how Politico described it — “Geithner’s Fiscal Cliff Offer: Obama Wish List.” Here’s what the Washington Post wrote about Obama’s “fresh demands:”

Rice Bombs On The Hill
Susan Rice, the Obama Administration’s ambassador to the United Nations, is making the rounds on Capitol Hill this week. It is widely expected that President Obama will nominate Rice to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Part of Rice’s mission to Capitol Hill is to introduce herself to the men and women who will be voting on her confirmation. The other part is damage control.

Back On The Trail
The country is just 34 days away from the so-called “fiscal cliff.” If no agreement between President Obama and conservative House leaders is reached by January 1, 2013, the Bush tax cuts automatically expire. According to the liberal Brookings Institution, “Nearly 90 percent of all households would face tax increases averaging nearly $3,500.” Some are rightly calling it “Taxmageddon.”

To Give Thanks
Tomorrow the nation will pause as we spend time with friends and family in a day of thanksgiving for the tremendous blessings of this land. Some years, when things are going well and life glides along smoothly, celebrating is easy. But this year thanksgiving may be tough. Our country faces difficult times, economically and politically, and we are facing tremendous threats to our national security.

The Left’s War On Israel
The liberal media’s coverage of the conflict in Israel continues to be incredibly biased. It emphasizes civilian casualties in Gaza while seldom mentioning that the casualties are happening because Hamas and Islamic Jihad are exploiting media prejudices and Western sensibilities to make Israel look like the aggressor.

Former CIA Director General David Petraeus testified behind closed doors on Capitol Hill this morning about the 9/11 attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Gen. Petraeus told members of the intelligence committees that he “knew almost immediately” that the attack on the consulate was carried out by Ansar al Sharia, an Al Qaeda group in Libya.
