Jeffrey Murawsky, new VA Health Under Secretary connected to secret VA waiting lists
Back on May 21, when then VA Secretary Eric Shinseki fired the Under Secretary for Veterans Health, Robert Pelzer, for the mushrooming scandal in veterans health care, never mind that Dr. Pelzer had been planning to retire and his replacement has been nominated by Obama two weeks earlier, we pointed out that this was merely shifting the deck chairs on the Hindenberg. The replacement, Dr. | Read More »
Bowe Bergdahl’s story stinks and demands a full investigation
The story surrounding the return of Bowe Bergdahl to US custody is still developing but the more we learn the more it seems like Bergdahl willfully deserted his post and comrades and sought some type of refuge among the Haqqani Network in Afghanistan. All the major media are leading with the story line of Bergdahl as a potential deserter rather than a freed prisoner (CNN | Read More »
Obama Abandons WV Democrats with New EPA Emissions Rules
If West Virginia’s Democrat leadership expected President Barack Obama to take a break from anti-coal actions during the 2014 election season, they must be sorely disappointed.

Barack Obama hides behind signing statements to justify #Bergdahl / Taliban swap.
So, it turns out that the Obama administration was legally required to at least notify Congress before it actually traded Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban terrorist commanders*: Lawmakers were not notified of the Guantanamo detainees’ transfer until after it occurred. The law requires the defense secretary to notify relevant congressional committees at least 30 days before making any transfers of prisoners, to explain the | Read More »
Media: VA Health Care is a model for the United States
This week we have seen the Inspector General of the VA deliver a devastating critique that lays direct blame for the death of some veterans on the VA’s practice of denying care to veterans for prolonged periods of time in order to make their appointment wait-times look better. A whistleblower in Texas equates the VA management with a crime family. Despite the avalanche of evidence | Read More »
Obama’s Speech at West Point: Lies, Deceptions and Delusions
Today Barack Obama gave the commencement address at the United States Military Academy at West Point. While the address was billed as his “foreign policy vision” it was vintage Obama: banal, deceptive, self-serving, and partisan to the very core. Sort of a metaphor for them man himself. He led off by proclaiming success. He trotted out Osama bin Laden’s putrescent corpse for effect. He claims, | Read More »
Barack Obama, the ESPN President
I’m a big fan of Matt Damon movies. I’m not however a big fan of Matt Damon’s politics. But that’s OK with me. It’s a relationship that works well for both of us. He gets my money when I’m watching Bourne Identity or Ocean’s 11 and he uses that money and fame to find a bigger soapbox from which to spout comments that I usually | Read More »
The Incompetence of Barack Obama: Outed CIA covert officer edition
This weekend Obama made a completely unnecessary trip to Afghanistan to “thank the troops.” Given that Afghan President Hamid Karzai refused to meet with him, one is left with the feeling that the trip was to divert attention from the burgeoning VA scandal that has killed dozens, if not hundreds, of veterans who were unwary enough to depend upon this administration for some semblance of | Read More »
Government negligence and insider trading behind the GM recall
After being saved by the American taxpayer in 2008, General Motors seems again on the way to the knacker’s yard. General Motors has recalled nearly 13.8 million vehicles in the U.S. this year. That’s a lot, obviously. For example, it blows past GM’s previous annual recall record of 10.75 million vehicles, set in 2004. And it means GM is responsible for more than half of | Read More »
Obama and Hillary’s great Libyan adventure melts down
Obama’s great Libyan experiment is taking on the air of a geopolitical Chernobyl. As we speak, US forces are being assembled to evacuate American citizens from that country: The Obama administration is moving military assets into place in preparation for a possible evacuation of Americans from Libya, as a political crisis threatens to touch off a new wave of violence in the unstable country. Officials | Read More »
Obama: Shinseki and another incompetent boob are in charge of fixing the VA
While the Obama regime has tried to ignore its role in precipitating the massacre of Americans at our Benghazi consulate, it is having a lot less luck evading the consequences of its own incompetence in the rapidly snowballing Veterans Affairs scandal. Last week the regime tried to pretend that the long planned retirement of VA Under Secretary for Health Robert Pelzer was actually a firing. | Read More »
Chamber of Commerce and Obama agree cheap foreign labor is a great idea
If you have any doubts about the reason behind the push for “comprehensive immigration reform” just look at who is pushing it. Anytime the Chamber of Commerce and the Democrat party team up the American consumer and taxpayer had better hang onto their wallets. US Chamber of Commerce president Thomas Donohue made immigration a focus last week when he issued what was essentially an ultimatum | Read More »
Obama poised to allow illegal aliens to enlist in the Armed Forces
Last week, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced he would not allow the ENLIST Act of California Republican Jeff Denham to be voted on. This was the culmination of an intense campaign by Heritage Action and the Madison Project to stop this ill considered bill. Mr. Denham is, apparently, one of those Chamber of Commerce Republicans who are committed to “doing something” on immigration no matter how dumb “something” | Read More »
