Obama very concerned about murder of NYC cops
Via the Twitter timeline of some guy at BuzzFeed Obama briefed on shooting of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn, per WH poorer. pic.twitter.com/VyCrcUwyBF — Andrew Kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) December 21, 2014 From his first days in office, Barack Obama has made it one of his objectives to use race relations as a wedge for political purposes. It started with the beer summit and it has metastasized | Read More »
Obama’s foreign policy enters 12-step program
One of the axioms for anyone entering a twelve-step program such as that pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous is that first the participant must have hit rock bottom The concept of rock bottom is important in the 12 steps and treatment in general because it serves as a touch stone and a reminder. Addicts and alcoholics are very good at altering the world they see to | Read More »
Sarah Palin & Ted Cruz: The Two Most Powerful People on Earth
When Gabby Giffords was shot in Arizona, the left went into a frenzy blaming Sarah Palin. In fact, when I was on CNN, I went on TV with Cornell Belcher and he was livid when I suggested leftwing rhetoric could be as hostile and divisive as rightwing rhetoric, if not more so. John King was apologetic for using war metaphors for politics and promised to | Read More »
Buried lead: Barack Obama comes out in favor of Citizens United!
Dear God but this man is unaware of the universe. (2:45, if it doesn’t work) Because if somebody is able to intimidate folks out of releasing a satirical movie, imagine what they’d start doing if they see a documentary that they don’t like… Actually, we don’t have to imagine what they’d start doing. You see, in 2008 a federal court decided that a documentary called Hillary: the | Read More »
Obama’s Cuba deal frees a murderer
One of the features of Obama’s unilateral decision to skirt federal law and expand diplomatic and commercial ties with Cuba was that, along with a clutch of spies, he released a convicted murderer. On February 24, 1996, three unarmed private aircraft piloted by men belong to the anti-Castro humanitarian group, Brothers to the Rescue, were making a routine flight outside Cuban territorial waters and airspace | Read More »
Communists Win the Day. Frank Marshall Davis Would Be Proud Of Obama
Few could have predicted that communist regimes would win the day on December 17, 2014. Communism was so twentieth century. But Barack Obama, promising to fundamentally transform America, has done so. His mentor, communist activist Frank Marshall Davis, would be proud of him. To reiterate my conclusion on Barack Obama’s world view and policy objectives: to make the world safer, the United States must be | Read More »
The GOP Emboldened Barack Obama on Cuba
From Wikipedia: Currently, the Cuban embargo is enforced mainly with six statutes: the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917, the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, the Cuba Assets Control Regulations of 1963, the Cuban Democracy Act of 1992, the Helms–Burton Act of 1996, and the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000. The Cuban Democracy Act was signed into law in 1992 | Read More »
Sure, let lame duck Barack Obama normalize relations with Cuba.
Since John F Kennedy, Presidential foreign policy towards Cuba can be summed up in one sentence: Let my successor be the one who has to be the guy that let Fidel Castro win. Well, guess what: Barack Obama volunteered to be the poor, stupid sad sack that has to eat the pavement on that. CNBC reports: “The U.S. is starting talks with Cuba to normalize full diplomatic | Read More »
Obama shows no leadership on fight with ISIS
Earlier in the week the White House sent the low-wattage Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to ask the Senate to pass an authorization for the use of military force against ISIS. It has been clear from the start that Obama really doesn’t care about ISIS. He is concerned that his legacy, other than trashing the US | Read More »
The GOP: For Wall Street, Not Main Street
Sixteen Republicans voted against the rule on the CROmnibus. They threw the process into chaos and sent Republican leaders scrambling. Barack Obama had to send his Chief of Staff up to the Hill to convince Democrats to go along with it. And ultimately we got a clear picture of where Republican leaders stand. They headed to the edge of the shutdown cliff, willing to shut | Read More »
An Interesting Choice for Republicans: With Their Base or With Obama
The CROmnibus is in chaos thanks to so many Republicans opposing the rule. That exposed the underlying weakness and it showed the Democrats just how much turmoil the GOP leaders were causing for themselves. Now Boehner is struggling to get it passed and wants Democrat votes to help get it passed. This puts Republicans in an interesting position. With Barack Obama now coming out to | Read More »
This is not complicated
According to the latest Fox News poll, 68% of Americans are concerned the President has exceeded his constitutional authority in his executive amnesty scheme. The President himself said it would unconstitutional before he did it. Republicans members of congress agree. They too say the President’s actions are unconstitutional. They swore an oath to uphold, protect, and defend the constitution. Therefore, should they fund the President’s | Read More »
House GOP Will Stop Stoners, but Not President Choom Gang
House Republicans intend to stop Washington, D.C. from legalizing marijuana. They’re going to attach the legislation as a rider to their continuing resolution/omnibus. But they will not stop President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty. The most amazing thing about this is that Washington, D.C. decided to legalize marijuana through democratic action and a referendum. Barack Obama declared his own actions unconstitutional just two years ago. The | Read More »
Now Or Later: Why Not Wait to Fight Over Amnesty?
This is, perhaps, the simplest and most easily understood argument against acting now to stop the President. Come January, the House of Representatives and the Senate will both be held by the Republican Party. It will, therefore, improve their leverage against the President and his unconstitutional amnesty. So we should wait. Except . . . well . . . except there are some fundamental problems | Read More »
Another Democrat Falls. Republicans Still Won’t Listen.
The Republicans now have their largest majorities in Congress since World War II. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) has been defeated in a runoff in Louisiana. Former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards went down to defeat too. Republicans will have a solid majority in both houses of congress in January. They will have that majority because they ran opposed to Barack Obama. They | Read More »
