    We are former senators. The Senate has long stood in defense of democracy — and must again. "During our service in the Senate, at times we were allies and at other times opponents, but never enemies. We all took an oath swearing allegiance to the Constitution. Whatever united or divided us, we did not veer from our unwavering and shared commitment to placing our country, democracy and national interest above all else."

    When Beyonce and Jay Z are performing, all eyes are glue to the stage. Unless, that is, Barack Obama is rocking out behind you. Fans were delighted to spot the former U.S. president unleashing his best dad moves with wife Michelle beside him in a private booth at the FedExField in Landover, Maryland on Saturday. Throwing their arms in the air during Jay's track N****s in Paris, the former first couple were on their feet and clearly loving every moment as their old friends lit up the stage.
  • Obama Portrait Artist Likes to Paint African-American Women Holding Heads of Decapitated White Women

    Can you imagine if Donald Trump’s official portrait artist painted white women holding the decapitated heads of African-American women? There would be social chaos. But as Americans we are supposed to sit back and applaud Obama’s artist for chopping off the heads of white women to be carried like a trophy by African-American women? Was this artist, Kehinde Wiley, paid with public tax monies to paint Obama’s portrait?

    ABC news journalist and Barack Obama fangirl Robin Roberts on Monday’s Nightline gushed over a new book of pictures of the Obamas. Co-host Dan Harris deemed the collection of images “picture perfect.” Talking to former White House photographer Amanda Lucidon, Roberts fawned over a picture of the couple snuggling close to each other: “Didn't the President tweet this photo for Valentine's Day?” Harris hyped, “And picture perfect. The White House staff photographer getting candid about her years following First Lady Michelle Obama. The story behind this famous image.” In contrast, when Roberts interviewed Laura Bush in 2007, she wondered if...
  • Kobach rips reports claiming mass boycott of Trump voter fraud probe as ‘fake news’

    The vice chair of President Trump's voter fraud commission took aim Wednesday at media reports of a mass boycott of the ongoing probe, dismissing it as "more 'fake news.'" Kris Kobach, who also serves as secretary of state in Kansas, said "despite media distortions and obstruction by a handful of state politicians," the committee will "continue its work to gather the facts through public records requests." "While there are news reports that 44 states have "refused" to provide voter information to the Commission, these reports are patently false, more "fake news," he said in a statement. "At present, only 14...

    Hillary Clinton has become the first female nominated for President of the United States but, should she win the election, she will not be the first female to occupy and control the Oval Office (insert Monica Lewinsky joke here). That honor arguably goes to Valerie Jarrett, currently Senior Adviser to [Hussein]. ....Not only did Valerie Jarrett become a mentor to the young Barack Obama, she soon became what Investor’s Business Daily called Obama’s Rasputin, someone who had more security than our personnel did in Benghazi... ....She arguably has more influence over Obama than anyone with the possible exception of Michelle...
  • .44 Russian A Stubby, But Accurate Load

    AShooting Journal ^ | 7/14/2016 | Mike Nesbitt
    The .44 Smith & Wesson Russian is a rather stubby little cartridge. It has an overall cartridge length that is just a bit shorter than a Sharps .45-caliber paper-patched 550-grain bullet, but its performance outshines its size. In recent years cowboy-action shooters have brought new life to this fine old load. One attraction for me is shooting blackpowder revolvers and lever-action rifles from the 1870s. Of course for me, shooting those guns is rather restricted to using the newly-made copies. Regarding revolvers – which we’ll concentrate on for the rest of this short tale – my guns are mostly second-...

    A Kodiak man shot and killed a brown bear Sunday night after it tipped a nearby trash can, returned to the area and charged him, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Nate Svoboda, Fish and Game biologist, said he met with the man Tuesday night and they "walked through the whole scenario." Around 11:45 p.m. Sunday, the man said he was in bed when he heard a loud crash outside his window. He went outside and found a garbage container on its side. Trash covered his yard, Svoboda said. "So the individual grabbed his pistol and started...

    The Hill ^ | Thursday, April 21, 2011 | Sam Youngman
    High gas prices and continued anxiety about the economy have taken their toll on President Obama's approval ratings, which have dropped consistently since the president announced he is running for a second term. Since Obama announced on April 4 with a low-key email and video address to supporters, the president's numbers have gone down in every poll conducted during that period. Pollsters attribute the president's dropping poll numbers to the rise of gasoline prices, which historically have taken a toll on the popularity of the White House. Last Friday, a Gallup survey showed the president's numbers at 41 percent, a...

    BOSTON FUNDRAISER: ________________________ ________________________ - President Obama addressed a group of 152 Democratic donors at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The walls were lined with enormous original oil portraits from the 16th century and guests are seated around about 24 round tables. Obama was introduced by Rep. Ed Markey, who called Obama the “true fulfillment” of JFK and Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream for America. In welcoming Nancy Pelosi, Obama called her “someone who’s going to go down as one of the greatest Speakers in our history: Nancy Pelosi.” “When the rubble had cleared, when the dust...

    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released its annual National Health Expenditure Accounts report Wednesday. The report contains "the official estimates of total health care spending in the United States." In 2009, health care spending in the U.S. totaled $2.486 trillion, up 4% versus 2008. That equates to 17.6% of our nation's Gross Domestic Product and $8,086 per person. Federal, state and local governments disbursed nearly 44%, or $1.083 trillion, of all health care dollars spent while the amount paid directly by businesses and households was 21% and 28%, respectively. In light of this data, liberals fussing about...

    STOCKTON - A gunman attempting to rob a patron in a store parking lot Sunday evening was shot by his own .44 Magnum revolver during a struggle, police said. Officers followed a trail of blood about 11/2 blocks from the store but were unable to find the man, said police Lt. Chuck Flesher. More than two hours after the shooting no one had shown up at a hospital for treatment, he said. The attempted robbery took place about 5:30 p.m. outside a market in the 2000 block of South El Dorado Street. The patron wrestled the gun away from the...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A man tried to rob a video lottery parlor on North Pinch Road in Elkview with a shotgun Wednesday, according to Kanawha County Chief Deputy Johnny Rutherford. Chad Wehrle, 30 of Elkview, walked into Teresa's Café just after midnight wearing dark clothing and a red bandana over his face and ordered everyone onto the floor, Rutherford said. When Wehrle demanded money, store worker Douglas James rose from the floor with a 44-caliber handgun and fired two rounds, Rutherford said. One of the shots hit Wehrle in the arm and upper torso, he said. Wehrle fled the building...

    When government officials play the Olympic lottery, taxpayers lose. That has been the disastrous experience of host cities around the world. (Forbes magazine even dubbed the post-Olympic financial burden the "Host City Curse.") So, why are President Obama and his White House entourage headed to Copenhagen, Denmark, this week to push a fiscally doomed Chicago 2016 bid? Political payback. Bringing the games to the Windy City is Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley's "vision." The entrenched Democratic powerbroker — in office since 1989 — would like to cap off his graft-haunted tenure with a glorious $4 billion bread-and-circuses production. The influential...

    Politico has an extraordinary report on Robert Gibbs, the White House Press Secretary, launching a furious broadside against the British press. Here are Gibbs' sneering and condescending remarks: "I want to speak generally about some reports I've witnessed over the past few years in the British media," Gibbs said. "In some ways, I'm surprised it filtered down." "Let's just say if I wanted to look up, if I wanted to read a write-up of how Manchester United fared last night in the Champions League Cup, I'd might open up a British newspaper," he continued. "If I was looking for something that...
