Dennis Blair, National Intelligence Director resigns or thrown under the bus.
That Blair “would rather step down than continue to serve as America’s top intelligence officer is a disturbing sign of the stranglehold the Obama White House has placed on America’s intelligence agencies,” said Rep, Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the top GOP member of the House intelligence panel. “Clearly, and understandably, Director Blair was frustrated by the White House’s micromanagement and sidelining of the Office of the | Read More »
Napolitano joins Holder, admits she has not read the AZ law, but “wouldn’t sign it” anyway
“> Someone pinch me, I was hoping this was just a nightmare. Is there ANYONE, one person in this administration that has any respect for the law? Any respect for actually reading something before they go and flap their gums about it? Folks, this is NOT an incompetent administration.

The can will kick back.
Not sure how much farther we can kick the can down the road. The current administration has continued the trend, if not even more vertical. Of course blaming the last administration. The spike in 33 was not even from creation of tremendous debt as it was from a rapid decline in the denominator of GDP. Look at our parabolic run in recent times, and that | Read More »
Missing good opportunities to expose radical government setting us up to fail.
I believe the success of the conservative movement is a foundation of state/individual right vs. big government. Government sets us up to fail, then points fingers, grabs more power, and institutes even more regulation. Conservative leaders are missing the opportunity to tie all the happenings these days (offshore drilling, financial debacle, illegal immigration etc..) to this central message. It’s all related. CROWLEY: And would you | Read More »
Make so called sanctuary cities walk their talk.
It’s time to make the utopians running sanctuary cities such as Gavin newsome in sanfran, put up, or shut up. They claim they’ll take all comers. Mayor bloomberg has also jumped on to the bandwagon. If that’s what their city wants, we should give it to them. I propose that Arizona call out all sanctuary cities to send buses to “rescue” all illegals encountered. If | Read More »

I wish someone could slip this into the ObamaPrompter
I received this in a forwarded email. What a simple test to share with family, friends, neighbors, co-workers etc… When you boil it down to simple terms it becomes very clear for everyone, despite all the Obamao hocus pocus. ****************** If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one. If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed. If a conservative is | Read More »
SCOTUS Steven’s retirement a clue to one term Obama?
AP April 4 Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens says he “will surely” retire while President Barack Obama is still in office, giving the president the opportunity to maintain the high court’s ideological balance. “I will surely do it while he’s still president,” Stevens told The Washington Post. Can we all stop pretending that SCOTUS is independent of politics? It’s war, time to gear up | Read More »
Jobless Claims rose “unexpectedly”, again. Let’s ban Easter and Cesar Chavez Day.
The number of workers filing new claims for jobless benefits rose unexpectedly last week, which a Labor Department economist blamed partly on the Easter holiday and other seasonal factors.

Gee wouldn’t a holiday keep people | Read More »

Making Sense of Obama’s wrecking of America.
Many are asking why is the left doing such stupid things? People ask is the administration that stupid? Nope, they aren’t stupid, except for the useful idiots. It is intentional. Ramming ObaMaoCare, cap and trade, running up the deficit/national debt beyond nosebleed heights just don’t make sense to the average person.
