Obama Skips Intel Briefings. WaPo Fact Checker Covers It Up.
Read More »
Glenn Kessler, notorious Obama fellatisto, awards Marc Thiessen “three Pinocchios” for reporting that Obama has attended his daily intelligence briefing less than half the time despite the claim being true. For this reprise of his infamous “true but false” finding on the Romney campaign, Kessler wins yet another Quad-Headie Award for denseness and duplicity in fact checking.
Obama’s Fourth Recovery Summer Ends
Read More »
Yet another Recovery Summer ends under the pathetic Obama regime and we find employment down, labor force participation down, incomes down, production down, and GDP down. The only up is food stamp recipients and college loan defaults. And the regime and its media enablers can only tout cargo cult economics.
Romney and Obama Sing From The Same Hymnal on Emergency Room Care
A sure sign of political silly season: seeing a whole lot of Obama supporters reflexively pushing the same attacks on Romney with the same overheated rhetoric at the same time on points that don’t stand up to even the most modest logical scrutiny. You’d think, given the clear and obvious points of disagreement between these two tickets on some issues, that would be the focus, | Read More »
Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04) targeted with vicious racist hate mail.
Come, let me reveal a deep, dark secret of the Mia Love campaign: she’s black. Did you care? Can’t say that I care much, either: what I care about is whether she has the resources and ability to defeat Jim Matheson in this year’s UT-04 Congressional race. The possibility is tantalizingly there: and apparently it’s worrying Utahn Democrats. Which is fine… except when Utahn Democrats | Read More »
CAUGHT ON TAPE: Democrat Congressional Candidate Tussles with Cameraman & Takes Camera
In the world of politics, trackers have become a part of campaign life. Sometimes they are professionals and sometimes they are concerned citizens who are simply filming and happen to catch something on camera. YouTube has become the stomping grounds for pushing video out that reveals sides of politicians that they’d rather the public didn’t see. Yet, amazingly enough, these candidates never seem to accept | Read More »
Barack Obama takes a page from the Muslim Brotherhood.
You may have noticed a little while back that the US Embassy in Cairo called out the Egyptian government/Muslim Brotherhood for saying one thing in English (read: Western foreign consumption) and another in Arabic (read: domestic/regional consumption). Which is all to the good… so why did the President do the same thing this week? The View: “In an interview with ABC’s “The View,” Obama — | Read More »
Obamacare Promised $2500 Decrease in Cost for Families; Ends up as $3000 Increase
In the second debate with John McCain in 2008, Barack Obama promised, “We’re going to work with your employer to lower the cost of your premiums by up to $2,500 a year.” It wasn’t just there, though. He reiterated this numerous times on the campaign trail. Freedomworks has a great compilation to emphasize this: Well, to quote Freddie Mercury, “Another one bites the dust.” Yes, | Read More »
Undoing the Food Stamp Presidency
Shortly after the November elections, Congress will reconvene for the lame duck session and consider the farm bill at the behest of a bipartisan coalition of statists. The farm bill is really a food stamp bill. The House version (H.R. 6083) authorizes $957 billion in spending over 10 years, $756 billion of which will be spent on food stamps and other nutrition programs. The Senate | Read More »
Before the Rooster Crows
Here is the most profound insight of the week I can give you — in American politics, if a Republican candidate loses, the media blames it on the candidate being too conservative. If a Republican candidate wins, the media credits the candidate drifting toward the center. The only sure fire loser in American politics is the conservative movement, which is remarkable given the amazing success | Read More »
Drain the Swamp
The heroes of Flight 93 didn’t have a week to conclude we were under terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. The attacks had no precedent. Flight 93′s passengers had scant shreds of information but a ton of common sense and the will to act. Were it not for their decisive action, we’d now have a crater on Capitol Hill, or a Perpetual Peace Garden at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, instead of a silent memorial in the woods near Shanksville, PA.

Obama permanently out to lunch
When even the media is starting to point out that the incumbent president is too busy campaigning for re-election to govern, you know you have a problem. Yet that’s precisely what the Associated Press noticed in a new report this morning. The first line: “It’s awfully quiet at the White House these days.” Sure, when you have a president who spends most of his time | Read More »
Susan Rice: Liar or Nincompoop?
Read More »
When Susan Rice took to the airwaves last Suinday to attempt to positively spin the misfeasance, malfeasance, and bone-jarring incompetence of the Obama administration’s actions in Egypt and Libya she either deliberately misled the American public or engaged in a massive mischaracterization of her knowledge of the situation. The past week has seen her story repudiated in all respects. She should resign as she was either part of a campaign of lies or she was a willing stooge.
Leader Of Libya Attack Linked To Obama Donor
Unsurprisingly, it turns out a political ally of Barack Obama was instrumental in the release from our custody at Guantanamo the man US intelligence has fingered as being the leader of the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.

Eric Holder Is Still Alive, A Lot Of Other People Not So Much
During Barack Obama’s recent interview with Spanish-language network Univision, he told a blatant lie about the genesis of Fast & Furious. This is what happens when a mediocrity like Obama is actually asked questions by a media that is more concerned with exploring a story than in getting a cocktail party invitation.

I want to give special mention this morning at both the top of the Morning Briefing and the top of RedState to the Washington Examiner. Often, conservatives complain that Barack Obama has not been vetted. Honestly, he hasn’t really been vetted. We do not know a lot about Barack Obama from his time before the United States Senate. Much of what we could learn has | Read More »
