  • How do we prevent Obama from resigning?

    If Obama should resign, all his activities and "accomplishments" will remain in effect! If he is impeached and convicted, all his Executive Orders, signatures on passed laws, become NULL and VOID thus setting the stage back to January 20, 2009 before he took that oath (that's debatable) If we impeach him now, Harry Reid will trash it in the Senate thus preventing the trial and conviction. So the question is this: How do we keep him from resigning before the Republicans can take over the Senate?

    90% of domestic beer sold in the US is made by two companies: Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors. Two companies, Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors, are responsible for selling more than 90% of the beer in the US. Americans consume about 6.3 billion gallons (23.85 billion liters) of beer per year and spend an estimated $200 billion US Dollars per year on beer. Anheuser-Busch InBev produced three of the top-five selling beers in the US in 2011, and MillerCoors produced the other two. In 2011, small, independent craft breweries accounted for about 6% of all beer sales in the US, up from...

    All of the water in the atmosphere would equal about 1 inch (2.54 cm) of all of the world's oceans' depth. The Earth's atmosphere does not contain a large amount of water. Its estimated volume of water is about 3,100 cubic miles (12,900 cubic kilometers), which is roughly just 0.001% of all of the water on Earth. In fact, if all of the water in the atmosphere was released at one time, it would equal only about 1 inch (2.54 cm) of the world's oceans' depth. The atmosphere's function with water is more transportation rather than storage. As water evaporates,...
  • Examiner Editorial: Hillary Clinton was not a great secretary of state

    The Washington Examiner ^ | January 24, 2013 | Examiner Editorial Staff
    f there was one constant through Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's appearances before congressional committees Wednesday, it was that lawmakers fell all over themselves heaping praise on her for the job she has done. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., was typical, saying: "Madame Secretary, you have represented us with tremendous strength and poise. You have won us friends." (snip) What on Earth are they referring to? American foreign policy under Secretary Clinton has been one disaster after another. She may not deserve blame for all of them -- or even most of them -- but it defies common sense to call...

    This may have been around before but it is worth reading it again! This tells the story, why Bush was so bad at the end of his term. Some people aren't aware of all of this. Don't just skim over this, please read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out. The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3, 2007... the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.

    Dick Morris: Obama’s sneaky treaties By Dick Morris - 02/07/12 06:53 PM ET President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are entering negotiations over — or seeking ratification of — five treaties that could radically limit our national sovereignty and the reach of our democratic institutions. Particularly scary is that the treaties, once signed and ratified, have the same status as constitutional law and cannot be altered or eclipsed by Congress or state legislatures. And their provisions must be enforced by U.S. courts.

    Thanksgiving 2022 "Winston, come into the dining room, it's time to eat," Julia yelled to her husband. "In a minute, honey, it's a tie score," he answered. Actually Winston wasn't very interested in the traditional holiday football game between Detroit and Washington. Ever since the government passed the Civility in Sports Statute of 2017, outlawing tackle football for its "unseemly violence" and the "bad example it sets for the rest of the world," Winston was far less of a football fan than he used to be. Two-hand touch wasn't nearly as exciting. Yet it wasn't the game that Winston was...

    DEBUNKING OBAMA'S TAX DEMAGOGERY By DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN Published on DickMorris.com on October 1, 2011 When President Obama says that the rich don't pay their share of taxes, he is lying, distorting, and demagoging. Here are the facts according to the IRS: • Those making more than $1 million pay 24% of income in taxes • Those making $200,000 to $300,000 pay 17.5% • Those making $100,000 to $125,000 pay 9.9% • Those making $50,000 to $60,000 pay 6.3% • Those making $20,000 to $30,000 pay 2.5% And what of millionaires who pay no taxes?

Posted: August 01, 2011 9:11 pm Eastern By Bob Unruh © 2011 WND Blast a politician? It could mean jail. A federal judge who owes his lifetime appointment to Barack Obama today concluded that a pro-life organization whose leaders criticized a politician for supporting Obamacare for funding abortions just might be guilty of defamation – and possibly worthy of jail time.

    Promises, Promises By Ben Stein on 1.28.11 @ 6:10AM A few more humble notes for Mr. Obama about where we are today…. During the run up to the recent Congressional elections, I was on Larry King Live with a super smart man whose name I have forgotten. Larry asked a smart question. The question was, "Is Barack Obama a better campaigner than a President?" One of the men on the panel said, "Of course he is. When he is campaigning, all he has to do is promise things. When he's President, he actually has to do things."

    Posted by Michael Hammond (Profile) Monday, January 10th at 10:00AM EST 20 Comments by Michael E. Hammond, former General Counsel Senate Steering Committee 1978-89. Senate Democrats in the 111th Congress got a lot of mileage from procedural cheating (fiscal and legislative) –- and from extorting concessions from Republicans by threatening to cheat. For instance, the accounting tricks used to pass ObamaCare would have, if employed by a private business, put the company’s CEO in prison for the rest of his life: •Majority Leader Harry Reid used bribes, extortion, and corruption to buy the votes he needed to pass vast swathes...

    Like it or Not: Mexico is America’s Next Afghanistan It's time to 'man up' and face a fact that most politicians know, but few care to admit. Posted by LaborUnionReport (Profile) Sunday, December 12th at 9:00AM EST With the exception of, perhaps, Texas governor Rick Perry, no public official wants to publicly admit an obvious fact: The United States of America will likely be forced to invade Mexico. It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. The question then becomes: What to do with Mexico after we invade it and wipe out the drug cartels (as much...

    THE DEBT COMMISSION Posted by Erick Erickson (Profile) Thursday, November 11th at 5:00AM EST As you wake up this morning, there is a lot of talk about the leaked report of the Debt Commission. Keep in mind that this is not the final report, but a draft passed out by the co-chairs. What you need to know is pretty straight forward. Yes, the plan ends the deficit. It does so with lots and lots of spending cuts across the board. There are actually some good suggestions in the plan, but there is one inescapable fact — the proposal has buried...
