    It really couldn't have been easy to find people like Jen Psaki and Marie Harf. They are two of most unintelligent twits to ever represent the face of the United States government. That has to be it. It is simply impossible to imagine a person of even borderline intellect not bursting out laughing when Obama directs them to say this to the press: "We cannot kill our way out of this war." "We can help them [Muslim countries] build their economy so they can have job opportunities for these people." We can't kill our way out of this war? The...

    At CPAC, Scott Walker made a remark that caught the attention of many of the left, and some on the right: OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Thursday that his experience taking on thousands of protesters in his state helped prepare him to take on terrorists across the world. The likely Republican presidential contender sparked pointed criticism from labor union leaders across the country after remarks delivered on the first day of the Conservative Political Action Conference in suburban Washington. The annual conference features more than a dozen potential Republican presidential contenders over three days hoping...

    The FCC voted today to regulate the internet . It's absolutely frightening. It will be the end of the internet as we know it. Never mind that Obama will demand that all illegal aliens are guaranteed access to the internet and you'll pay for it. Never mind that for now. It's the real goal that's scary. It's who's behind this that's chilling. As one would expect, the left supports the action and you can just hear the implications in their words: “We’re on the eve of a historic event at the FCC,” Rep.

    Joe Biden, the man who is "one heartbeat away from being president," is best known as a molester. But his most recent actions at the "Countering Violent Extremism" (CVE) summit are going to enhance his resumé. As are his actions just before the CVE summit. Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) tweeted that Biden talked about "the right wing militias & supremacist groups that are violent in the name of the Bible." But Biden provided no examples to back up his statement. MPAC didn't tweet any examples, nor did Biden provide any. Sounds like a "straw man" argument - believe...

    Barack Obama’s relationship with Islam is definitely strange, at least as relative to that of most Americans. The United States may not be a Christian nation, but it is has always been a nation of Christians in that the overwhelming majority of the country has always been Christian, and remains so today. Given that 0.6% of the United States’ population is Muslim, most American’s familiarity with and knowledge of Islam comes from reading and what they see on TV. Neither can give someone the same familiarity with Islam as would be felt had the grown up with the faith as...

    There has been much harrumphing and hand wringing about Rudy Giuliani's comments about Barack Obama not loving this country. The NY Slimes, as usual, went right after Giuliani instead of even considering the content of Giuliani's words: His remarks this week mostly drew derision and outrage, and seemed to further distance Mr. Giuliani from the heroic, above-the-fray image he carefully burnished after the Sept. 11 attacks, aligning him more squarely with the hard right of the Republican Party than at any other time in his career. After his initial comments caused an uproar, Mr. Giuliani did little to tamp down...

    The Washington Post reported that The Department of Transportation has some pretty big ideas about the future of transportation. Before diving into a thicket of transportation data and questions, a hefty new federal study makes a traffic projection that could get a chuckle, even from folks in Nebraska: Omaha, the new Los Angeles. That’s by 2045, the study says, when traffic congestion in Omaha (current population of 435,353) could be just as bad as it is in L.A. (current population of 10 million). The provocative prospect of gridlock in the heartland sets the stage for a 316-page document produced by...

    The latest fantasy from the fanciful imagination of Barack Obama: We hear a lot about the United States' Judeo-Christian heritage, but according to President Obama, "Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding." That's what the president told a White House conference on "countering violent extremism" on Wednesday. Obama has said similar things in the past: "I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story,” Obama said in a June 2009 speech in Cairo, Egypt. "Islam has always been part of America," he said in a 2010 statement marking the start...

    Dhimmitude is the surrendering to and appeasing of Muslims. It is now the official foreign policy of Barack Obama. Obama is unable to use the terms Islamic and terrorism or extremism in the same sentence. It's frustrating both the right and the left. “The idea that you’re tying outreach to terrorist activity is both offensive to the community and specious from a counterterrorism research perspective,” said Mike German of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law. Obama had no problem calling Americans "enemies" of the state. He had no problem labeling returning American vets as...

Vice President Joe Biden has been known to get a little "too close for comfort" in the past, and his behavior at the swearing-in ceremony for new Defense Secretary Ash Carter got the political rumor mill swirling again on Tuesday. The vice president appeared to be whispering sweet nothings into the ear of Carter's wife, Stephanie, while the new top dog at the Pentagon addressed the challenges he'll face in his new role.

    The primary reason Communism doesn’t work is that it goes against the very nature of man. In Communism there is simply no motivation for anyone to work hard. When there is a zero correlation between the amount or quality of work you do and the compensation you receive, your motivation to work hard, or maybe work at all, simply evaporates. This is particularly true given that the compensation for the slacker at the next desk is equally without correlation as he continues to get the same salary regardless of whether he actually gets anything done or not. And while Communism...

    Illegals will be voting in the 2016 election. You can bet on it, and it all began in 1993. In 1993 Bill Clinton and democrats passed what is known as the Motor Voter law. The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA), popularly known as The Motor Voter Act, is a legislation that required state governments to allow registration when a qualifying voter applied for or renewed their drivers license or applied for social services. This legislation forced state governments to make the voter registration process easier by providing uniform registration services through drivers' license registration centers, disability centers, schools,...

    I've read a number of headlines that essentially frames it this way: "....the killing of 3 MUSLIM students". By reading just the headlines before the story, the impression given to me is that this must be a case of anti-Muslim bigotry and a "hate crime" (I hate that term). As Retire pointed out to me a while back, supported by Pew research, anti-Semitism remains a larger problem than anti-Muslim bigotry. After reading the actual known facts, it's evident that those headlines are pushing a perspective and an agenda. Meanwhile, commenters whose own bias leads them to believe that this was...

Not all that long ago, military service was practically a requirement for serving in Congress.

Obama announced a series of tax proposals that would raise taxes on financial institutions and wealthy individuals, and simplify education tax credits to pay for his plan for free community college...

    I know. They could be siblings. There are times when you in your life when events transpire which are not just puzzling, but confounding. This is one of them. Michael Moore called Chris Kyle a “coward.” The rotund coward Moore is accompanied by nine bodyguards.Moore cornered, pressed and embarrassed an aging and failing Charlton Heston, who was kind enough to grant Moore an interview. Subsequently, at the 2005 National Board of Review Awards, Clint Eastwood had a warning for Moore: “Michael Moore and I actually have a lot in common – we both appreciate living in a country where there’s...

    Remember when Obama promised America that Iran would not get a nuclear weapon? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDLp2qEXfLcHe said, and I quote: "I make an absolute commitment that we will do everything we need to do to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons."and "Iran possessing nuclear weapons will be a major threat to us and to the region."Then in the 2012 Presidential debate with Mitt Romney Obama made this promise: "As long as I am President of the United States Iran will not get a nuclear weapon."See for yourself https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUtcFGdVecIIn 2013 Joe Biden assured us that Obama wasn't bluffing: President Obama is “not bluffing”...

    The nation has "turned the page" on recession and war, Obama will trumpet tonight. The sad thing about Obama and the left wing media is that Obama believes something is true simply because he says it, and so does the press, who will not question it for one second. Obama is going to lie. Of that there is no doubt, but I have some thoughts about what he really should say. He will say: “The verdict is clear. Middle-class economics works. Expanding opportunity works. And these policies will continue to work, as long as politics don’t get in the way.”...

    Now that Barack Obama’s first six years are over it might be nice to see what he has wrought, and compare him to another iconic president, Ronald Reagan. When Barack Obama took office in 2009 65.7% of Americans were participating in the laborforce. (This is called the Labor Force Participation Rate – LFPR – which includes those working and those looking for work.) Six years later that number was down to 62.8. When Ronald Reagan took office in 1981 63.9% of Americans were participating in the workforce and six years later that number had grown to 65.6%. Unemployment is the...

    Islam is not very nice to women. Saudi Arabia recently beheaded a woman in a public square in Mecca. The video made rounds on YouTube, but the company removed it since it violated policy. It showed men dragging Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, a Burmese resident, through the streets. Then four police officers commenced to “hold the woman down before a sword-wielding man slices her head off, using three blow to complete the act.” Basim screamed, “I did not kill! I did not kill!” the entire time. The men killed her without painkillers. “One way is to inject the prisoner...

    Then Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) introduced, on July 14, 2014, the Civilian Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act (CEJA), designed to ensure that government employees and contractors working overseas can be prosecuted for criminal acts they commit abroad. His committee had heard testimony from Jamie Leigh Jones, a 20 year old woman from Texas who took a job with Halliburton/KBR in Iraq in 2005. Jones testified that, during her first week in Iraq, she was drugged and gang-raped by coworkers. Haliburton/KBR, she said, moved her into a locked trailer when she reported this assault. She testified that she was kept...

    Germany’s Angela Merkel was there arm and arm with French President Francois Hollande. They were there to show solidarity in the face of the gruesome murders of the Charlie Hebdo journalists and policemen. Binyamin Netanyahu was there. So was Mahmoud Abbas, who was strangely smiling in a sea of glum faces. Also present was David Cameron. Mali’s President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita also went. Putin did not go, but sent his Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. King Abdullah II of Jordan also went along with many leaders from around the world. But no Obama. Joe Biden and John Kerry did not go...

    Barack Obama is one mean, vindictive bastard. There is no other way to put it. During the last government "shutdown" Obama blockaded the WWII memorial, which is normally is open and ungated. He spent money on personnel and materials to prevent WWII vets from gaining access to their own shrine. The vets requested access to the memorial but were refused by Obama and the Department of the Interior: The White House and the Department of the Interior rejected a request from Rep. Steven Palazzo’s office to have World War II veterans visit the World War II memorial in Washington, the...

    At first I thought it was simply stupid. At first I thought someone screwed up. That's not it. Obama chose not to go. He didn't want to go. He didn't want to offend Islamic terrorists and have to call them what they really are. He didn't want to have to admit that we're still at war with Islamic extremists. And more. At first the Obama regime wasn't even going to address the issue until it started taking flak from all sides. Politico thought the White House was "out of step": Wait, White House aides said Sunday, as they saw coverage...

    There has been much commentary about the events in France over the last week. One of the major causes for the motivation behind the home grown terrorists who struck the offices of Charlie Hebdo is the fact that in many places in France, France is something of a foreign country. There are hundreds of “no-go” zones in the country where French police won’t go and French law has been supplanted by Sharia law. It is from these areas of largely disaffected, often unemployed youth on the government dole where much of this homegrown hatred emanates. These young people feel...

    Iowa National Guard Lt. Pat Hendrickson, right, stands with Nabiullah Mohammadiin Afghanistan. “He was my right-hand man,” Hendrickson said.(Photo: Courtesy photo via The Des Moines Register) The price of aiding and abetting the U.S.? One of the most often repeated phrases in our military culture is “Leave No Fallen Comrade Behind.” Many service members relied so heavily on their Afghan and Iraqi translators that some were considered members of the unit. It goes without saying that, when troops are in the combat zone, their lives are in constant danger. But at the end of their tours, they get to go...

He sent a pathetic fundraiser to France. In the aftermath of 9-11, French President Jacques Chirac was the first outside head of state to visit the US. Obama couldn't be bothered with France. He hid.
