  • Obama gets a Keystone Mulligan

    05/10/2012 5:53:09 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 17 replies ^ | May 10, 2012 | Bob Beauprez
    Barack Obama is going to get another shot at getting the decision of the Keystone XL Pipeline right.  The Canadian company, TransCanada, seeking to build the massive delivery system that would transport 800,000 barrels of oil from the Canadian tar sands to Texas refineries announced it is resubmitting an application for permitting approval.  Obama killed the jobs creating, energy supplying proposal in January to appease his radical environmental constituency that opposes anything connected with the hydrocarbon industry.  Criticism of his blatantly political decision came from all corners of the spectrum including the President's usually loyal labor unions who coveted the...

    The Obama administration is threatening to veto the House Appropriations bill, HR 5326 by Rep. Harold Rogers (R-KY) because, among other things, it would roadblock a multiple long gun sales reporting requirement in four southwest states for the embattled Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This new angle should get the attention of Northwest gun owners who faithfully follow the Fast and Furious scandal at WaGuns, Seattle Guns, Northwest Firearms, Shooters Northwest and GunRights Media forums. A message from the Obama administration on the proposed legislation says this:

    This is the ultimate in narcissism. Obama, commenting upon his sudden public approval of gay marriage, was just shown stating that he couldn't stand the idea of soldiers and sailors out there fighting on HIS behalf when they were not free to be in gay relationships. Forget the gay marriage issue. Our military is fighting on HIS behalf?

    Sovereignty: Even if he's not re-elected, the president hopes to leave behind a treaty giving a U.N. body veto power over the use of our territorial waters and to which we'd be required to give half of our offshore oil revenue. The Law Of The Sea Treaty (LOST) has been lurking in the shadows for decades. Like the Kyoto Protocol that pretended to be an effort to save the earth from the poisoned fruit of the Industrial Revolution, LOST pretends to be an effort to protect the world's oceans from environmental damage and remove it as a cause of potential...

    WASHINGTON - It should be clear by now that President Obama is running against the U.S. economy and as of last week the economy was beating him. A couple of weeks ago, as Mitt Romney was locking up the Republican presidential nomination, Obama's anemic polling numbers were hitting 50 percent, up from the mid-to-upper 40s and his prospects were looking up. Then in the past week, two bleak economic reports knocked him off his shaky pedestal and he was back in the 40s again and in a dead heat with Romney. The salient characteristic of Obama's presidency has been a...

    For a campaign that has been up-and-running since just about January 21, 2009, the Obama crowd did not have a good "official" first week. Last weekend, Barack Obama officially launched his campaign for re-election at a rally on the campus of Ohio State University. A couple of things were wrong with the event. About 14,000 people showed up, but the arena holds many more and the traveling press made much of the empty seats. That's not Obama's fault. It's the fault of the advance team and the campaign, but there you are. During his remarks, Obama lashed out at Republicans...

    WASHINGTON - House Republicans, accusing President Barack Obama of waging a war on gun owners, plan to cut off funding for an rule requiring firearms dealers in border states to report multiple sales of certain rifles. The matter has become a flash point on both sides of the national gun control divide, elevating the debate over the Second Amendment in an election year in which the president is struggling to win again in pro-gun swing states such as New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada and Virginia. Obama has vowed to veto the House's plan to prohibit the government from enforcing the border-state...

    American Thinker ^ | May 8, 2012 | Steve McCann
    The 2012 election has often been described as the most pivotal since 1860. This statement is not hyperbole. If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind. The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama's first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of "transforming America" in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why...

    It's no surprise President Barack Obama officially kicked off his re-election campaign on two college campuses on Saturday. You're supposed to apply pressure at the site of bleeding. And the president's support among young voters is bleeding away. Though their elders vote at higher rates, the Millennial generation, aged 18 to 29, represented almost one in six votes in the 2008 presidential election. And they voted for Obama over Senator John McCain by a two-to-one margin. While others in the media are focused on the upward trend in the president's approval ratings over the last four months in this age...

    The Obama administration warned the Supreme Court this week via papers filed with the Court that if Obamacare is struck down, there will be an “extraordinary disruption” in Medicare. Medicare was not discussed during the Supreme Court arguments, since it was not a Constitutional issue. This is a practical argument, not a legal one; it’s the Obama administration applying pressure to the Supremes. But that’s what the Obama administration does – they focus on the politics of the situation rather than on the legalities. If they can’t win on the law, they figure, they’ll push the Court to act via...

After 39 weeks of unemployment over 8%, after an unemployment rate that's been higher for longer than any since the Great Depression -- with only 115,000 jobs added -- even if you are Barack Obama, don't you care a little about your legacy? Don't you want some improvement somewhere in real life, not just a rate drop from 8.2% to 8.1%? Don't you want something that's gonna add to your legacy, make you look good to the...

    Facts are sometimes nasty, persistent things that get in the way of the best political spin. President Obama likes to say that oil production is up and that the rise in gasoline prices is not his fault, but the facts challenge his words. Energy production is up, but only due to policies and practices set in motion ten years ago by the George W. Bush administration, and production is up only on private fields. (Snip) Economists estimate that for every $0.01 increase in a gallon of gasoline sustained for one full year, the economy loses $1 billion for that year.

    Obama Files has discovered a recording from 2007 of then-Senator Barack Obama ranting against U.S. gun dealers, blaming the Virginia Tech massacre that had occurred a few months earlier on 'unscrupulous' gun dealers, and throwing in for good measure gun dealers being responsible for the rampant gun violence in Chicago's public schools. This sheds light into the Obama Administration's program to demonize and falsely blame U.S. gun dealers for arming the Mexican drug cartels, while at the same time 'encouraging' them to hand over thousands of weapons to individuals that they knew were planning on transferring them over the border....

    Forward! Comrades, you can't make it up. Can you say "campaign blunder"? Or is it a blunder? Is it deliberate? The socialist mind at work in campaign mode? The Obama campaign has picked a portion of one of the most infamous socialist slogans of 20th century history to use as its own new campaign slogan. "Forward" is the new Obama slogan, Team Obama borrowing boldly from none other than the late Communist Party of China leader Chairman Mao. Mao's slogan? "The Great Leap Forward."

The first one: "US Applications for Unemployment Aid Drop Sharply -- The number of people seeking unemployment benefits fell last week by the most in nearly a year. The figure was a hopeful sign that hiring could pick up in coming months." This is a seesaw. Just yesterday we had the news from ADP that new jobs were paltry, 119,000. Now, this report contradicts what ADP put out yesterday. "US Applications for Unemployment Aid Drop Sharply," which means fewer people are supposedly out of work. Now, we've told...

    President Obama has made a reelection point of complaining that “big oil” receives tax breaks and that individuals and corporations need to pay “their fair share”. Critics point out that the term is ambiguous and cannot be used for budgeting however it can be useful in campaign ads. Research into public documents indicates that General Motors paid no taxes in 2011, despite being touted as a success story of the administration which took over a 60% interest in GM in 2009. Similarly, General Electric, whose CEO, Jeffery Immelt, is a senior adviser to the council on jobs and competitiveness to...

    I was invited via an email from Cabela’s to trick out my AR. It took a minute to figure that they were talking about an automatic rifle. The picture looked like the M-16 I carried 40 years ago in military service, but more upscale. I don't own an AR. I don't even have a gun. It is usually nice shirts and camping equipment I get from them. So it was a little surprising. I like Cabela’s. When we lived in Michigan I'd take my kids to see their beautiful four-story displays of bears, coyotes, foxes in hinterland settings. It seemed...
