  • Obama's Massive Failure Has Delivered Trump's Success

    No president in our country’s history has been more concerned about his legacy than has Barack Obama. How ironic that people might someday best remember our first African-American Commander in Chief for having inspired the candidacy of Donald Trump. Six years of Obama forcing unpopular policies down Americans’ throats; six years of lies and misdeeds by unaccountable bureaucrats; six years of lame growth and resulting wage suppression; six years of appeasing our enemies and facing down our friends; six years of dividing the country – they have all taken their toll.
  • Is Trump an Equal Opportunity Insulter?

    YouTube ^ | August 7, 2015
    If Trump calls the women (actually it was one particular woman) who insult him “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals,” what does he call the men who incur his wrath? See video: Top Ten Crazy Donald Trump Moments I would posit that Trump's insults to women are mild in comparison to the ones he hurls at the men who take him on. Think about it. In our culture, about the worst thing you can call a woman is a "female dog," or "prostitute," whereas the insults reserved for men (AH, CS, or MF) are much, much worse. Jeb Bush...

    A little-known party has sought permission to show US President Barack Obama the differences between a man and a woman through a nude protest. The peaceful demonstration against homosexuality will begin at 10 am at the Freedom Corner, on July 22 and 23, said Republican Liberty party leader Vincent Kidala. "The procession shall be carried out by approximately 5,000 totally naked men and women to protest over Obama's open and aggressive support for homosexuality," Kidala said in a letter to the county commander on Monday.

    Regardless of what you think of Mr. Trump, he is finally giving people who are victims of illegal alien crime a voice. In this press conference, Trump allows them to tell their own stories of how their loved ones were killed by illegal immigrants, who were later released to commit more crimes and kill more innocent people. They slam the press for not doing their job in reporting the news. See the video here:

    The Supreme Court will soon announce its decision in King v. Burwell, a case that could have far-ranging impact on the Affordable Care Act. The system more commonly known as Obamacare pays subsidies to taxpayers below 400 percent of the poverty line to cover health-insurance premiums. The plaintiffs in King argue that the explicit language of the law forbids subsidy payments to those purchasing health insurance outside of a state exchange.

    For years, when it came to presidential candidates, Wall Street made huge compromises in order to support the Republican Party. The money men in New York City set aside their socially liberal views in order to support fiscally conservative candidates because that was the only way to get on the same page as the GOP base. The result has been a series of candidates Wall Street's big donors didn't really want. It seems those donors are getting tired of that outcome.

    BALTIMORE, Maryland — Racial protests supposed to be peaceful quickly turned into violent riots on Saturday evening, closing down the city of Baltimore for some time—and creating a panic for thousands of people as just 50 miles away elites in Washington partied with President Barack Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Personally, I wasn’t supposed to be on the job tonight as a reporter. After a long news week and as several of my contemporaries lived high on the hog down in D.C. at the so-called “Nerd Prom,” me and my brother left D.C. to go see our Boston...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | Feb. 23, 2015 | Gordon Crovitz
    Critics of President Obama’s “net neutrality” plan call it ObamaCare for the Internet. That’s unfair to ObamaCare. Both ObamaCare and “Obamanet” submit huge industries to complex regulations. Their supporters say the new rules had to be passed before anyone could read them. But at least ObamaCare claimed it would solve long-standing problems. Obamanet promises to fix an Internet that isn’t broken. The permissionless Internet, which allows anyone to introduce a website, app or device without government review, ends this week. On Thursday the three Democrats among the five commissioners on the Federal Communications Commission will vote to regulate the Internet...

    “One man with courage makes a majority.” – Andrew Jackson One evil man had the audacity to attack Christianity and defend Islam in the midst of 3,500 Christians at the recent National Prayer Breakfast. Many criticized and complained about Barack Obama’s speech afterward, but not a single Christian in that room had the courage to speak “truth to power.” Why is that? Evil operates through people, and it does what it’s supposed to do. Evil lies, seduces, divides and gives false illusions in order to conquer. God is greater than Satan.

    America, the one I loved, left me last night. I fought hard to keep her and tried to warn her of deceitful and abusive men, but in the end, she abandoned not only me, but her sacred virtues, and fell into the arms of sweet-talking swindlers, who promised her the world and tons of free stuff. Today I'm hurt, I’m exhausted, I'm subdued, I’m extremely disappointed, but surprisingly, I'm not bitter. America has made her choice, and as much as I loved and wanted to protect her, I know I cannot change what has happened. She must deal with the...

    In tonight's debate, Mitt Romney missed a great opportunity to zing Mr. Obama. Here's the line Obama used, and what Romney could have said (and still can in follow-up speeches, if he chooses to use it): Obama: We have to dig ourselves out of the recession. What Romney can say to that is: Mr. President, when you are in a hole and you keep digging, the hole doesn't get smaller; it gets bigger! Isn't that what you have been doing for the last four years, Mr. President, digging the hole of debt deeper and deeper? Where I come from, when...

    Barack Obama approaches his nomination for a second term with the lowest pre-convention personal popularity of an incumbent president in ABC News/Washington Post polls since the 1980s. He’s also at his lowest of the year among registered voters, with trouble among women. Just 47 percent of registered voters in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll see Obama favorably overall, down 7 percentage points from his recent peak in April, while 49 percent rate him unfavorably. He’s numerically underwater in this group for the first time since February.

(The Associated Press and The Hollywood Reporter have since confirmed.) Diller had been suffering health problems as of late: She recently hurt her hip and wrist in a fall and has been living under hospice care at her home. She passed away there, surrounded by family.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama has become one of the first modern day U.S. presidents known for enjoying a cold beer that is brewed and tapped right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Obama aides on Tuesday confirmed the small brewery during a three-day re-election campaign tour across Iowa. An official admitted the Obamas have their own alcoholic beverage made and kept in stock at the White House. Revelations about the White House beer came to light after the president gave a bottle of it to a patron at a coffee shop he was visiting in Iowa. The gift prompted the...

    Romney seems to have a "tin ear" when it comes to listening to conservative views. Since it is nearly impossible to mount a successful campaign against him now and come up with another viable candidate who can win in the November election, we need to be sure that our voices are heard and heeded by the Romney campaign. Question: Do conservatives have someone in Romney's inner circle who can influence him and make sure he sticks up for our values? Is there anyone from FreeRepublic who can represent us and our concerns on his team? How can we get a...

    In the 1760s, the rallying cry was "No Taxation without Representation." We need a new slogan to combat a government that is secretly taxing us and lying about it. We have to call Obamacare what it really is: The Obama Health Care Tax. This new taxation came from our "representation" in Congress, in cahoots with a tyrannical President. In 2010, we got rid of (a part of) that Congress, but their stealth taxes live on. We defeated (many of) the Dems who gave us Obamacare in 2010. We can and must defeat the rest of them in 2012.

    Amazing. A major news channel has finally reported what Freepers have known for years: The man whom Barack Obama (Jr) reveres and calls "Father," (Barack Obama Sr.) was a bigamist at the time of Junior's birth. If the president's narrative is to be believed, then Barack Obama Sr. was married to two women at the same time when Jr. was born. Mr. Obama Sr. never divorced his first wife, Kezia, who was in Kenya at the time of Sr's alleged marriage to Barack's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, in Hawaii in 1961. Mr. Obama Sr, married a third woman, then later...

    CAMBRIDGE, England - Margaret Thatcher was so fascinated by U.S. President Ronald Reagan that she snatched and kept a page of his doodles from a G7 summit, the former British prime minister's newly released papers reveal. The page of ink drawings is among personal papers from 1981 released Saturday by the Thatcher archive at Cambridge University. Reagan left the piece of paper sitting on a table at the meeting near Ottawa, Canada, in July 1981. It is adorned with a scribbled eye, a man's muscular torso and several heads, including one that looks like a self portrait. "She told me...

    With the US economy suffering through its deepest slump since the Great Depression, the Obama administration has designed a political strategy to match, with echoes of the campaign rhetoric deployed by Franklin Roosevelt in the 1930s. Throwing out the standard presidential playbook dictating an aspirational pitch to centrist voters, the White House is cementing a high-risk message that strikes firmly at wealth and privilege.

    Sitting presidents whose agendas are soundly rejected by voters in midterm congressional elections have two options: They can either accommodate the new political reality, as President Clinton did after 1994; or they can use bureaucratic edicts to advance their unpopular programs, as President Obama is clearly doing now. Given the historic drubbing his party just suffered at the polls, Obama's defiant strategy may prevent a second term for the man who began his first buoyed by an outpouring of good will. Predictably, Obama's regulatory imperialism focuses on labor and environmental issues, as Big Green activists and labor unions, especially those...

    GARDEN GROVE, Calif. – Crystal Cathedral, the megachurch birthplace of the televangelist show "Hour of Power," filed for bankruptcy Monday in Southern California after struggling to emerge from debt that exceeds $43 million. In addition to a $36 million mortgage, the Orange County-based church owes $7.5 million to several hundred vendors for services ranging from advertising to the use of live animals in Easter and Christmas services. The church had been negotiating a repayment plan with vendors, but several filed lawsuits seeking quicker payment, which prompted a coalition formed by creditors to fall apart, church officials said.

"There is no need to 'de-Christianize' each other over the matter," wrote Jim Garlow, an influential California pastor, in a five-page memo this week arguing that evangelicals can attend Beck's rally and partner with the television and radio personality in good conscience. "Glenn Beck is being used by God - mightily," Garlow wrote in the memo, which was obtained by CNN. "The...

    ABOARD THE USS GEORGE WASHINGTON – Cold War enemies the United States and Vietnam demonstrated their blossoming military relations Sunday as a U.S. nuclear supercarrier cruised in waters off the Southeast Asian nation's coast — sending a message that China is not the region's only big player. The visit comes 35 years after the Vietnam War as Washington and Hanoi are cozying up in a number of areas, from negotiating a controversial deal to share civilian nuclear fuel and technology to agreeing that China needs to work with its neighbors to resolve territorial claims in the South China Sea.

    Portland, Oregon is a "sanctuary city," where illegal immigrants can live and work freely without fear of recrimination or deportation. But try operating a lemonade stand without a license, and risk getting your business closed down by the long arm of the law. Apparently, Portland offers no sanctuary to home-grown criminals, like seven year olds trying to earn a little cash selling lemonade on the street. See State Closes Seven Year Old's Lemonade Stand. If the child were in the country illegally, the authorities probably would have walked on by, without checking the legality of her business or asking to...

    Let’s forget for a moment about the allegations that Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is not a naturalized U.S. citizen and examine the incontrovertible facts surrounding the reporting of his mysterious birth in 1961. Fact 1: Barack Obama Sr. (the President’s father) was married to another woman (Kezia Aoko) in Africa at the time of Barack Hussein Obama Jr’s birth to Stanley Ann Dunham Obama (the President’s mother). Fact 2: In the United States, being married to two women at the same time is illegal. It is the crime of bigamy. Fact 3: In 1961 someone placed a birth announcement in...

    A month after finishing 12 percentage points ahead of his closest competitor in Georgia's 9th district special election, former state Rep. Tom Graves finished the job in Tuesday's special runoff. Graves, a Republican, will now serve out the unexpired term of GOP Rep. Nathan Deal, who gave up his seat in the House to concentrate on running for governor. With 60 percent reporting, The Associated Press called the special election for Graves, who had 60 percent of the vote. Former state Rep. Lee Hawkins pulled 40 percent. Graves, a real estate investor, built much of his early campaign around courting...

    American Heart by Jon David They say our reputation needs a new coat of paint and a delicate melody. But I say I like the bruises, ’cause a melody don’t mean a thing if we don’t have the strength to say, And I won’t be made to ever feel ashamed That I’m American made! I’ve got American parts. Got American faith, in America’s heart. Go on, raise the flag, I’ve got stars in my eyes. I’m in love with her, and I won’t apologize! They say that we need changin’! (As if all the Founding Fathers seemed to get it...
