    “Words mean things”? If only…

    Recently, White House spokesman Josh Earnest, while expressing the administration’s concerns about comments made by Prime Minister Netanyahu during his campaign for reelection, uttered the phrase, “words mean things.” I thought I may have been hallucinating, but I later confirmed that he had indeed said that by reading news accounts. I can’t help but ask – since when have words meant anything beyond momentary expediency | Read More »

    It’s Not Netanyahu Who Insults Our Intelligence From Some Fantasy World!

    In the wake of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s address to Congress, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 6% said in a statement that she was “saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge posed by Iran…”, and referred to the speech as “an insult to the intelligence of the United States.”  This from a woman who genuinely insults our intelligence nearly every time | Read More »

    Obama’s Bizzaro Middle East

    The Obama regime has turned the entirety of the Middle East political landscape upside down. Apparently there is nothing of substance in this country’s historical alliance with Israel, and the regime is now behaving as if our relationship with sponsors of worldwide terrorism means more to us. And it’s nothing short of surreal. Just days ago, in a Q&A with [mc_name name=’Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)’ | Read More »

    More Proof that Self-evident Truth is Extinct

    “We hold these truths to be self evident…”, so wrote Thomas Jefferson and the other authors of the Declaration of Independence, and as evidence, the Continental Congress voted to separate from England and accept all of the unavoidable consequences. Self-evident truth – a concept that appears to be extinct in the post-Christian, post-modern, post-racial America that Barack Hussein Obama epitomizes. That is nothing new, and | Read More »

    Give Brian Williams an Award!

    I almost have to laugh at calls for NBC to fire Brian Williams after he admitted to lying about being in an army helicopter that was shot down during his efforts to cover the Gulf war in 2003. This is the network that continues to employ the likes of Al Sharpton, a man who has repeatedly been thoroughly discredited, from the infamous Tawana Brawley mess | Read More »

    ISIS is just like you, Christians!

    Barack Hussein Obama made use of the national prayer breakfast to again provide a peek at the real Barry.  He found this venue – the national prayer breakfast – to be an appropriate stage from which to place Christians on the same plane with ISIS, just days after these inhumane murderers televised their burning to death of a Jordanian pilot.  This is just the latest | Read More »

    Media: Obama is a poor victim of the politicizing behavior of Boehner and Netanyahu

    I’m beginning to suspect that there might be a bit of leftist bias in the media. As near as I could tell in scanning the Sunday morning news shows this week, the network anchors were in pretty solid agreement that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would do serious harm to his country’s relationship with the U.S. if he follows through with a planned speech to | Read More »

    Stated reason for refusing to meet with Netanyahu just another lie

    Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% invited Benjamin Netanyahu to address congress regarding the threats that terrorists, including the government of Iran, pose to the middle east and the entire world, and Mr. Obama predictably announced that he would not be meeting the Israeli Prime Minister during his visit.  His reason?  At the time of Netanyahu’s visit Israel will be within two weeks | Read More »

    Obama – self-centeredness run amok

    When this unqualified little man was first elected, listening to Obama deliver so many overt lies and half-truths, all with his special brand of arrogant condescension, made me angry.  Now, however, after six years of this, lying and arrogance are precisely what I expect, and last night’s SOTU provided more of the same. For the record, I don’t agree with a single policy initiative that | Read More »

    Another “trust fund” is bankrupt because you don’t pay enough gas tax

    Gas prices now average about $2.50 per gallon, and some economic experts argue that they are low enough that American consumers can now absorb an increase in gasoline taxes.  Too many in Washington just can’t stand to let a chance to raise taxes pass by.  Indeed, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 6% was quoted last week as saying, “If there’s ever going to | Read More »
