    Yesterday Obama ran to the podium using a horrendous crime at a college in Oregon to rail against guns. As traumatic as these insane killings are, when Obama addressed the Nation, barely any information was available from Oregon.  What was he up to? Was he throwing a shiny object, gun control, out there for the media to goggle at while, . . . while what? Well, while Putin is settling into a long term encampment in Syria, and going to war. War! Encampment?  OK, well not so much encampment as ‘occupation’.  Yes, that’s better — occupation, which in Putin terminology translates...

    Exactly right: "Let me be very clear: I will not name the shooter." Sheriff John Hanlin said during a Thursday night briefing at a fire station near the Roseburg campus. "I will not give him credit for this horrific act of cowardice." He encouraged the news media and community to "avoid using it, repeating it, or engaging in any glorification and sensationalization of him. "He in no way deserves it," he said. "Focus your attention on the victims and their families and helping them to recover." Chris Mintz is the name we should know about. Not the other guy. Giving...

    Never send a community organizer to do a man's job. The other day Barack Obama made a most astonishingly stupid remark: "..chanting ‘death to America” does not create jobs or make Iran more secure." The line appears to have to been written by the equally feckless Marie Harf, who called for fighting terrorists with jobs. "We're killing a lot of them, and we're going to keep killing more of them. ... But we cannot win this war by killing them," Harf said on MSNBC's "Hardball." "We need ... to go after the root causes that leads people to join these...

    For years we’ve been hearing stories of schools scrapping dodge-ball, sports leagues eliminating scoring and schools passing students despite their lack of academic achievement. The reason, we’re told, is to protect the self esteem of students who might otherwise be harmed by coming up on the short end of a competitive stick. Of course none of this is a surprise to anyone who has watched as liberals have transformed the United States economy from a dynamic prosperity creating machine to a middling debt addict where the middle class finds itself on its knees as the government takes care of those...

    As you know by now, the newest Pope has hit the bricks in the US. Already, illegal alien supporters have staged a "spontaneous" event using a little girl that has been planned for a year. WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sophie Cruz's brief encounter with Pope Francis during his parade in Washington this week appeared to be the kind of spontaneous moment that is so endearing about this pope: an initially hesitant young child wrapping an arm around his neck as he offers a kiss and a blessing. But for 5-year-old Sophie, the moment unfolded as perfectly as it was scripted by...

    Despite having taken in more than its fair share of immigrants since the 1960s, Europe is now being forced to take in swarms of illegal immigrants fleeing from third-world hell-holes in Africa and the Middle East. The United Nations, that wretched anti-west viper’s nest, is demanding Europe does more to help the invaders. Amnesty International, an organization originally formed to help prisoners of conscience, also chimed in, proselytizing for the human rights of immigrants without giving a thought for the human rights of Europeans. Obviously, European people don’t have a right to their nations and should just meekly surrender territory...

    One of my favorite teachers in high school was Mr. Kelly. Ostensibly he was a reading teacher, but his interests were far more inclined towards history and cultures. We once got into a discussion about the great cultures throughout history. The obvious names came up… the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Romans, Aztecs, ancient China etc. Then he asked the question about what determines a great culture. My answer was something like: “A great culture leaves something tangible behind.” My reasoning was simply that whether the Parthenon, the Coliseum, various pyramids or the Great Wall of China, all of these cultures...

      Wall Street and its senior bankers have laid America down  to sleep.  They have done it in less than one generation.  They lost their way and corrupted their role in our capitalist society, having used wealth to control and manipulate the political process, producing ever increasing, and even obscene, wealth. For the purpose of this article, Wall Street refers to the agglomerated mess of brokerages and banks invigorated by Clinton’s passing of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act in 1999, repealing the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act, separating deposits from the speculation of the stock market casino.  After which, Clinton doubled down with...

      In what is a shocking development, 50 intelligence analysts are in full revolution against the Obama regime. They assert that Obama is cooking the intelligence books: More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military's Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned. The complaints spurred the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence. The fact that so many people complained suggests there are deep-rooted, systemic problems in how the U.S....

    The Obama regime has sprung into action despite the horse being furlongs from the barn. Secretary of State John Kerry has named a new czar to improve transparency at the State Department as the agency struggles to overcome archaic recordkeeping practices and glacial handling of public records requests — shortcomings exposed by the continuing furor over Hillary Clinton's use of a private email account as America's top diplomat. Ambassador Janice Jacobs will assume the newly created position of "transparency coordinator," Kerry said in a statement Tuesday.

    Last Monday I wrote a piece about immigration here at home and a changing face of Europe abroad. It was inspired by a trip to Europe and Ann Coulter’s Adios America. With all of this on my mind I tuned into Rush’s show on Friday for my normal dose of Excellence in Broadcasting.

    Americans are war-weary. The isolationist/non-interventionist wing of the American left and right perceive American interference abroad as part of the problem in exacerbating instability and breeding extremism and anti-American fervor. They argue for more books and less bombs; in "nation-building" here rather than abroad; in spending American tax-payer treasure on education and infrastructure here at home. They believe that Iraqis and Syrians and Yazidis and Kurds, Sunni and Shia, Arabs and Persians, Pashtuns and Tajiks, and Muslims in general should all solve their own problems without the expense of one more American soldier's life. They're right. They have a point...

    "Fertility clinics destroy embryos all the time. Why aren’t conservatives after them?" was the title of an article from Margot Kaplan in the Opinion pages of last Sunday's Washington Post. This is one of those pieces that contains enough ridiculous to write a thousand words or two to counter, but one sentence in particular really got me thinking (emphasis mine): The disparity between how the law treats abortion patients and IVF patients reveals an ugly truth about abortion restrictions: that they are often less about protecting life than about controlling women’s bodies. Both IVF and abortion involve the destruction of fertilized...

She was interrogated in Iraq by an American unit that operates outside the traditional criminal justice system. But the decision on where to try her was based largely in deference to Iraqi law.

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...

      Darkness approaches the Clinton campaign. Maybe. Two Inspectors General have asked the Justice Department to open an investigation  into Hillary's handling of classified material on her private server. WASHINGTON — Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday. The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton's private account contained "hundreds of...

    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. A third witness recounted how Mengele kept hundreds of human eyes pinned to his lab wall ``like a collection of butterflies.`` His operation was a lot like Planned Parenthood: At death camps like Auschwitz children did not fare well: they were generally...

      I told you so. Part of Obama's "fundamental transformation" of America is to not only marginalize the white race, but now it's clear that he means to make whitey pay. I wrote about it hereThe Tea Party is a threat to national security, the GOP is a threat, the NRA is a threat, returning vets are a threat. And every one of them is racist. Just ask Eric Holder and Barack Obama. Thus it is critical to be sure they lose their voices in the electoral process in this country. Barack Obama will have then made good on his promise...

    I find myself vacillating between thinking Barack Obama is utterly incompetent, or he’s an evil genius who has a nefarious anti American plan in mind. While my heart wants to tell me that the person who’s been twice elected President of the United States is a good man with good intentions who’s simply in over his head, my head tells me something else. When it comes to the domestic economy, Barack Obama is nothing short of a complete disaster. In virtually every situation he has chosen the path that is bad for freedom, bad for entrepreneurs, and bad for businesses…...

    Help us out here, Republicans. Many of us want to support you, we really do. We worked to hand you majorities in both houses of Congress and you rewarded your constituents by letting the president run his extremist agenda all over you. This was just capped off with finding a way to cave on President Obama's goal to achieve a nuclear armed Iran. As painful as that has been to watch, what hurts the most is watching you squander an issue where you could easily gain political support simply by speaking common sense. I am of course, talking about illegal aliens...

      Saturday July 11th 2015 marked the twentieth anniversary of the massacre of Bosnian Muslims by Bosnian Serbs in the town of Srebrenica.  The opportunity to indulge in an orgy of Serb-bashing by opportunist, self-serving politicians and the duplicitous media was simply too good to miss.  They were all-too-keen to continue propagating one of the biggest deceptions ever perpetrated on the West, a deception that did so much to advance Islamic jihad.  For Islam, Srebrenica is the gift that keeps on giving as you’ll now see. Let’s start with the then President of the United States, the Democrat Bill Clinton....

      Worse than you thought. A lot worse. Let's highlight the lows. 1. No anywhere, anytime inspections? But you promised!Ben Rhodes, way back in what- April 6?Rhodes also claimed the new arrangements ensure “anytime, anywhere” inspections of any and every Iranian facility — contradicting complaints by Israel that no such provision is guaranteed. Asked directly if the IAEA would have anytime, anywhere access, Rhodes said, “Yes, if we see something that we want to inspect.” “In the first place we will have anytime, anywhere access the nuclear facilities,” he said, referring to “the whole supply chain.” Secretary of Energy Ernest...

    There is a movement afoot to revoke Bill Cosby's Presidential Medal of Freedom in wake of recent resurfacing of rape allegations, culminating thus far with the AP obtaining and releasing a court document that has Cosby admitting to buying Quaaludes for the purpose of having sex with women. Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment is urging President Obama's administration to make the unprecedented move to strip Cosby of his award. Not only that, but they are also seeking enlistment of George W. Bush, who in 2002 presented Cosby with the nation's highest civilian honor, to support the petition in rescinding Cosby's award....

      Remember the fable of George HW Bush and the supermarket scanner? Here's how the NY Times described it back then: ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 4— As President Bush travels the country in search of re-election, he seems unable to escape a central problem: This career politician, who has lived the cloistered life of a top Washington bureaucrat for decades, is having trouble presenting himself to the electorate as a man in touch with middle-class life. Today, for instance, he emerged from 11 years in Washington's choicest executive mansions to confront the modern supermarket.Visiting the exhibition hall of the National Grocers...
