President Obama spoke for 38 or so seconds yesterday after learning that a Malaysian Air flight had been shot down over Ukraine. In the process, he said in those 38 seconds that a plane falling from the sky “may be” a tragedy. Conservatives were quick to point out Ronald Reagan’s response to the Korean Air 007 flight in 1983. The shoot down was September 1, | Read More »
The legacy of the Obama administration will be that it managed to corrupt virtually every institution within the US government and it did so in a remarkably short period of time. If there is a silver lining to this cloud of stench it is that he serves as an object lesson in how fragile are the systems that comprise our federal government. The greatest damage | Read More »
Companies must hire more people, pay their taxes, participate in Obamacare, and support the Government at all costs. That’s the strong message that President Obama has been spouting for years, and the answer-men and women with whom he’s surrounded himself are simply his bullhorns.
Barack Obama, hailing from Kenya – if only for college application purposes – and growing up in Indonesia, has always had something of an outsider’s perspective of the United States. Even when he lived in the United States, he lived in Hawaii, an island that up until two years before he was born was not even a state. Of course the United States is a | Read More »
Predictably, Mark Begich (D-AK) is attempting to run away from, and even against, President Obama, who was never particularly popular in Alaska on his best day and is performing especially poorly now. Begich is so desperate to create space from Obama that he is attempting to create the impression that he is not just different from Obama; he is actively opposed to Obama. BARROW, Alaska | Read More »
Given the Obama administrations demonstrated hostility to Christianity as anything other than a set of curious practices trotted out at various holidays. We’re all familiar with Hobby Lobby and Hosanna-Tabor, but the list of Obama’s actions aimed an marginalizing people of faith is fairly long. The U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli argued in Hobby Lobby that even if the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) covered | Read More »
At a speech in Austin, Texas, last week, Obama criticized the lawsuit House Speaker John Boehner has announced. I mean, think about that. You’re going to use taxpayer money to sue me for doing my job — (laughter) — while you don’t do your job. (Applause.) There’s a great movie called “The Departed” — a little violent for kids. But there’s a scene in the | Read More »
Great. Just when you thought the Obama administration had done all the damage it could possibly do in the Arab world you find out you are wrong. Via the LA Times Bahrain announced Monday that it was expelling a top State Department official for meddling in its affairs, sharpening tensions between the Obama administration and a strategically important Persian Gulf ally. The state-run Bahrain News | Read More »
I see a pattern in the online debates over Glenn Beck’s plan to bring a few thousand hot meals to children sent alone to to the US from Mexico. Anytime someone defends the practice, his critics get derailed in a massive non sequitur, beginning to argue about the gravity of the illegal immigration crisis, the economics of illegal immigration, and other related topics. The net effect is to say or to imply that the defender of Glenn Beck is simply wrong on illegal immigration.
The fact is, Glenn Beck’s actions are right or wrong independent of the correct policy on illegal immigration, and the entire debate is indicative of a moral decay that extreme leftists have injected into our rhetoric. We need to throw off their influence, now.
Israel is rapidly descending into a hot war. Over the past few years, Hamas has accumulated an arsenal of 10,000 rockets, some of which are advanced designs which can hit Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
The Jerusalem Post is reporting that Ben-Gurion Airport, Israel’s only international airport, has been targeted, and flights may be suspended. This is not a minor disturbance. It could be the opening act of Hamas and Hizbollah’s long-awaited match against the IDF and Israel as a nation.
Poor Rev. Jesse Jackson. Chicago, Il is too violent for him. Therefore somebody needs to “just find” $4Bn. It’s for the children. He explains below. “If we can find $4 billion for those children — and we should — we can find $2 billion for Chicago. There are more children involved, and more have been killed, and more have been shot,” said Jackson. Those children | Read More »
Earlier today we posted on the CIA station chief being expelled from Germany for running intelligence operations against German targets. As incredible as it seems, Obama, according to the New York Times, was unaware of either the operations or the fact that one of our agents had been busted by German counterintelligence. This is a sad and continuing trend in this administration. Whenever anything blows | Read More »
Yesterday the German government announced that it was expelling the presumed US CIA station chief because of US espionage activities directed against the German government. Germany has expelled the CIA’s station chief in Berlin in a dramatic rebuke to Washington after its security services uncovered two cases of alleged American spying in a week. The American intelligence official was asked to leave the country in | Read More »
The White House is making a very bad mistake when it comes to their attitude towards the border, as witnessed by this interview snippet featuring DEMOCRATIC Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas. Background is, somebody from the White House called to complain to Cuellar about his call for the White House to do more about the current border crisis. “Who called you?” [Fox & Friends] | Read More »
