Vox.com’s Max Fisher: Obama’s Ukraine policy is a solid B+
One of the few bright spots in the perpetual darkness (can I say that anymore? or does this doom me to a reeducation camp) that has descended on America under the kleptocratic regime of Barack Obama is watching his defenders tie themselves into knots justifying each and every boneheaded move that he makes. Benghazi, Syria, Obamacare, the IRS, the VA have all produced great examples | Read More »
Majority say Obama admin knowingly lied about Benghazi terrorist attacks
A new Fox News poll finds that 51 percent think that Obama administration “knowingly lied” about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya “to help the President Obama during his re-election campaign” against Mitt Romney. The poll also found that 54 percent think Obama’s administration “tried to deceive” the American people about the events surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attacks. | Read More »
Obama’s Weakness Encourages Chinese Aggression
One of the disadvantages of being weak is that you get pushed around. If you’re a little guy and weak it doesn’t happen all that often because there is nothing gained in the way of building a reputation in pushing a weakling around. If you are the big, fat, stupid kid, then bullies line up to mess with you. That is the position the | Read More »
Obama Administration actions decrease opportunity to get ahead
A recent National Journal/Heartland Monitor poll finds that Americans don’t believe that Obama’s administration is able to make a positive difference in their lives. By a margin of 46 percent to 25 percent, respondents say the actions of the Obama administration “decrease opportunity” for people to get ahead. On a number of key issues Obama claims to focus on, respondents said America is on the | Read More »

So much for debunking history: Donetsk votes for Russia
A word to the wise about history and debunked historical theories: the Domino Effect was real. It is still real. The Latvians, Estonians, Ukrainians, Poles, Czechs, Romanians, Germans and others who were buttoned up behind the Iron Curtain for 50 years know it’s real. Our indifference and idleness in the face of Putin’s reanimated Russian Bear provokes fears of another 70 years of an Iron Curtain, replaced by a Steel Ring, run from Moscow by a man unfettered by western morals, but skilled in crafting his own image at home, and abroad.

Obama Blames GOP For His Failed Administration
As we observed during the Clinton Administration, once you have rid yourself of any sense of shame the world is your oyster. If you can’t be deterred from an action by shame then there is no action you can’t undertake. Barack Obama has shown us that when it comes to shamelessness, Bill and Hillary Clinton are rank amateurs. On Wednesday, Obama gave another in his | Read More »
Obama, Libya and Boko Haram’s Whirlwind
To the dorm room Machiavelli’s of the Obama administration the Arab Spring (or the al Qaeda Spring, depending upon your point of view) was supposed to usher in a new era of power politics. Enthusiastic mobs of local Jeffersonian democrats, Hamiltonian federalists, and theoretical Burkeans would take to the streets, powered by texting and Twitter, to overthrow totalitarian regimes. Instead of using the means and | Read More »
Sid Dinsdale Would Give Barack Obama a Blank Check
Sid Disdale is denying my claim that he would raise the debt ceiling. In fact, he went on radio last week saying he wasn’t sure where I got that. Well, I got it from Sid Dinsdale. He told local news in Nebraska he would always vote to raise the debt ceiling. So when Republicans and Democrats collaborated to give Barack Obama a blank check till | Read More »
Tech at Night: Ditch Firefox Now. Internet in schools means pornography in schools.
I’ve taken some criticism for saying over and over again in this space, that kids don’t belong on the Internet (unsupervised and uncontrolled really), and that classrooms should not have Internet access introduced. The basic problem is that unfettered Internet access brings bullies and predators to kids. It also means pornography will just keep popping up, and there’s no way to fix that with these uncontrolled environments. It’s just not worth the risks.
Have you quit using Mozilla Firefox yet? It’s time to switch, yet again, as Mozilla has taken an extremist political position for no real reason except that the project has been completely hijacked by radical ideologues. Not only are they for zombie Net Neutrality, they’re claiming the Obama FCC isn’t going far enough. Lunacy.
Look, it doesn’t really matter what browser you use: MS Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, Chromium, Google Chrome Opera, or w3m. Just switch to anything that doesn’t fund this left-wing outlet.

Jay Carney Lies About The Benghazi Lie
Now that Speaker Boehner has finally taken an action that he should have taken two years ago — authorizing a select committee to investigate Benghazi — we might possibly wring from this White House a narrative that comports with facts. On April 30, when Jay Carney experienced an epic roasting at the hands of ABC News’ Jon Karl, most of us were focused on the | Read More »
Why Barack Obama is a lame duck and it isn’t even 2015 yet.
(Via Hot Air Headlines) I’m mildly fascinated about why David Gergen apparently doesn’t get what is ridiculously obvious to probably everyone reading this: …it has now become equally puzzling why [Barack Obama] has not become more sure-footed in foreign affairs. He is one of the brightest men ever to occupy the office, and yet his learning curve has been among the flattest. It is has | Read More »
Obamacare Cannot Reduce the Cost of Modern Medicine
In case you were wondering, ObamaCare has not positively bent the cost curve. In the case of drug prices, it’s your trip, but the mileage may vary. The table included above is a randomly selected index of pharmaceuticals taken from a database published in Bloomberg.com. I took a random walk through the data selecting the first 20 pharmaceuticals I could find with complete price data | Read More »
Captain America: Whiner Soldier
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com Considering he’s the most timorous and geopolitically unformed President since Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama is remarkably prolific when it comes to slaughtering straw men. Take for example his recent press conference hissy fit in Malaysia. Or it may have been a calculated outburst, it’s hard to tell with this guy. Ostensibly a defense of his nuanced, highly sophisticated foreign policy, by the time Obama | Read More »
Read the following three articles and you will quickly realize what it means to live in Obama’s America – one of permanent stagnation and socialism. U.S. Regulatory Costs Are World’s No. 10 Economy [IBD] After years of rapid growth during the Obama administration, the cost of federal regulations is now bigger than the entire economies of all but nine countries in the world. That’s according | Read More »
WaPo uses the dread number ‘2006’ when discussing Barack Obama.
I know that the election is in six months, and six months is an eternity in politics – but so is *nine* months.
