      In the series House of Cards, Claire Underwood is a highly ambitious, ruthless woman who will lie, cheat and steal to get what she wants and crush anyone in her way. People die around the Underwoods. She reminds one of another woman currently in the news. A federal judge has exploded over the endless delaying of the Obama regime's releasing of Hillary Clinton's emails: An irritated federal judge Thursday put the Hillary Clinton email scandal into stark terms, grilling the State Department on a pattern of delayed document releases that has turned a possible bureaucratic logjam into a major problem...

    Addressing a gaggle of dictators comprising the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Obama feigned a weak lament that although he considered himself a good president, he could not run again. That pesky thing called a Constitution that his Administration has trampled on for six years was in the way.  "I cannot run again.  I can't run again," he sighed.  Having suffered headaches from listening to a lack of veracity in his pronouncements over the years, I thought, something's not right here.  What has he really done? The answer was simple.  My sense is that the strategy to retain power was likely developed during the...

      Barack Obama is a fundamentally dishonest man. I have stated here repeatedly that I believe him to be a sociopath- not unlike Frank Underwood in House of Cards and I am more convinced of it every time Obama speaks. His endless lying about the ACA is the stuff of legend but what really stands out is his sheer audacious mendacity. When asked if he mislead the country about the ACA, Obama said unequivocally: “No. I did not.” Barack Obama is a bald faced liar.  And he just can't stop. The other night Obama appeared on the TV show of...

    It’s sometimes said that you can tell a lot about a person by the friends they keep. That makes sense. Friendships are generally based on complementary personalities, shared values, and a variety of intangibles that cause people to bond. Money in politics is a similar barometer. The vast majority of Americans never donate any money to politicians or get involved in politics at all. For all of the kvetching about money in politics, there’s really not that much there. In 2012 a total of $6 billion was spent on politics. That includes spending by campaigns, outside groups, and independent organizations....

      Barack Obama is a liar of biblical proportions. That's not new, but every now and then he spouts something that makes you want to scream "Are you effing kidding me?" And he's done it again. His Weekly Address yesterday was a beauty. He starts by patting himself on the back as usual: Hi, everybody. It’s been seven years since the worst financial crisis in generations spread from Wall Street to Main Street – a crisis that cost millions of Americans their jobs, their homes, their life savings. It was a crisis that cost all of us. It was a reminder that...

    Please stop: The Connecticut Democratic Party quietly voted Wednesday night to remove references to iconic former Presidents Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson from the name of its annual fundraising dinner due to their links to slavery and the mistreatment of Native Americans. "Let's work together to show the rest of the state exactly what it means to be a Connecticut Democrat,'’ said freshman party Chairman Nick Balletto, according to the Hartford Courant, before introducing the resolution to rename the Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Dinner. The resolution was unanimously approved. This is beyond misguided! It's the kind of liberal-think that makes me want to...

    Josef Mengele was known as the Nazi "Angel of Death." JERUSALEM — One witness described how Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele ripped an infant from its mother`s womb, then hurled it into an oven because it wasn`t a twin as he had hoped. Another told of killing her newborn infant rather than let it starve in a Mengele experiment.

    While researching material for a historical novel about a Cossack family of the Ukraine and Crimea, I found a remarkable amount of provocative and fascinating material. For instance, the Ukraine and Crimea has been both a fulcrum point and thoroughfare throughout history, but one of the most intriguing aspects of this region is that the cossacks embraced freedom, while the rest of the world was locked in slavery and imperialism. Their idea of freedom was similar to the feeling of galloping a horse over the seemingly endless steppe; they were often illiterate and their concept of freedom might be considered...

    When historians look back on the collapse of the United States and seek to pinpoint the beginning of the end, they will no doubt look to the election of Barack Obama to the presidency. If they want to narrow the focus they will point to the period of his reign between 10:00 AM June 25th and 11:00 AM June 26th. Ted Cruz has charitably labeled this period as “some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history”. It’s slightly more than 24 hours, but he’s spot on. In fact, he’s far too charitable, they are the simply the most...

This Court’s “preference for avoiding surplusage constructions is not absolute.” Lamie v. United States Trustee , 540 U. S. 526, 536.

    Someone tell me that it's just my ODS-ometer going off and he didn't really just inject a political point into his Arlington speech, as if he's still campaigning: President Obama highlighted the U.S. drawdown in Afghanistan during his annual Memorial Day speech in Arlington, Va. on Monday, casting it as a historic time of remembrance spanning two administrations. "For many of us, this Memorial Day is especially meaningful. It's the first since our war in Afghanistan came to an end," Obama said during his speech at Arlington National Cemetery. Clad in dark blue suit and deep red tie, Obama noted...

    Why Ramadi matters: The fall of Ramadi is highly symbolic and of substantial strategic significance, despite the protestations to the contrary of Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey. In a joint press conference with Defense Secretary Ashton Carter on April 16, Dempsey stated: "The city itself is not symbolic is any way. It's not been declared part of the (Islamic State) caliphate or central to the future of Iraq, but we want to get it back. The issue here is not brick and mortar, it's about defeating ISIL." In fact, Ramadi is considered by ISIS...

    Former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morrell has been making his rounds in the media, promoting his new book. Earlier this week, he appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthews; and the Iraq war critics have been salivating over this "Aha! Gotcha!" moment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqOat2wDitQ Host Chris Matthews asked Morell about a statement Cheney made in 2003: "We know he [Saddam Hussein] has been absolutely devoted to trying to acquire nuclear weapons. And we believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons." Here's the conversation that followed: MATTHEWS: Was that true? MORELL: We were saying— MATTHEWS: Can you answer that question? Was that...

    The British center right party, the Conservatives, won a stunning victory upsetting all predictions of a hung Parliament. This makes the US the exception in the English speaking world of being the only government headed by a leftist, Barack Obama (whom I shall call oBUMa from now on). John Key (New Zealand), Tony Abbott (Australia), Stephen Harper (Canada) and of course David Cameron (UK) are all leaders of center right parties and Prime Ministers of their countries. Will the growing conservative tide from across the Atlantic surge to the US? The Conservative victory in the UK was stunning because for...

    Lawfare Blog: Following an American special forces raid on the compound of Islamic State operative Abu Sayyaf, U.S. interrogators, who are part of the High Value Detainee Interrogation Group, have flown to Iraq in order to question Umm Sayyaf, the wife of Abu Sayyaf, who was taken during the operation. Umm Sayyaf was allegedly involved in the workings of the Islamic State and could possibly have played a role in “the enslavement of women in Iraq and Syria.” U.S. interrogators plan to talk to Umm Sayyaf about U.S. hostages held by the militant group. However, according to the Washington Post,...

    In 2011 Barack Obama led from behind a NATO coalition bent on removing Moammar Gaddafi from power in Libya. The removal and death of Gaddafi was, Obama put it, a warning to "iron fisted" rulers everywhere. Syria, Iran and North Korea excepted, of course. Over at Foreign Policy this was hailed as a huge success. "Leading from behind" is an important element of this doctrine. It is no insult to lead but let others feel they too are architects of a plan, to lead without making others feel you are bullying, to lead but do so in a way in...

     CBS This Morning was on the screen (I almost said "tube") this morning and I watched an exchange between Charlie Rose and John Dickerson.  Rose introduced the topic as Marco Rubio being the latest GOP candidate  to "run into trouble" this morning over his comments about the Iraq war. There clearly is a herd mentality out there among the media to play the gotcha game regarding Iraq. Rose played a video clip between Chris Wallace and Marco Rubio in which Wallace asks Rubio "Was the Iraq war a mistake?" Rubio answered properly that it wasn't a mistake at the time. Wallace...

    Who created ISIS? Was it Jeb Bush's brother? (Shout out to Rob Lowe- Thank you!). Can it be traced back to CIA overthrow in 1953 of Mossadeq? Jimmy Carter's lack of leadership support for the Shah in 1979? Is it due to our support of the Saudi royals and other secular Muslim dictators? Or our abandonment of them in wake of the Arab Spring? Did it all start with Reagan and the CIA (war in Afghanistan and CIA support for the Mujahadeen against the Soviets)? Was OBL a CIA creation? Did the U.S. create Saddam? After all, there's that famous...

    Paul Krugman: Thanks to Jeb Bush, we may finally have the frank discussion of the Iraq invasion we should have had a decade ago. But many influential people — not just Mr. Bush — would prefer that we not have that discussion. There’s a palpable sense right now of the political and media elite trying to draw a line under the subject. Yes, the narrative goes, we now know that invading Iraq was a terrible mistake, and it’s about time that everyone admits it. Now let’s move on. Well, let’s not — because that’s a false narrative, and everyone who...

      There's something very wrong with liberals. Very, very wrong. They love to take political advantage of the dead, whether it's Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Benghazi or the Amtrak dead. The bodies of the dead in the Amtrak crash weren't cold- and perhaps hadn't even been recovered yet- when the left began using the Amtrak tragedy to hammer Republicans, blaming budget cuts for the crash. You see, it was budget cuts that made the train go twice as fast as it was supposed to be going. Predictably, the NY Times jumped in with both feet: Such spending now...

      The mask is off. No more pretending. The dictator is displeased and things have to change. President Straw Man: I think that the effort to suggest that the poor are sponges, leeches, don’t want to work, are lazy, are undeserving, got traction. And look, it’s still being propagated. I have to say that if you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it is a constant venue. They will find folks who make me mad. I don’t know where they find them. They’re all like, “I don’t want to work. I just want a free Obama Phone, or whatever.”...
