    President Obama is being applauded by his pandering members of the left's publicity machine for poking a stick in the eye of the GOP and its likely 2016 Presidential candidates.  The economic geniuses at the NYT pretend that there is suddenly a long line-up of American corporations running for their executive jets ardently anxious to unwrap the supposed Christmas present being handed to them and awaiting them in Cuba. We're excited to sell average Cubans a couple of  Chevys?  Or perhaps three of four Teslas? How?  Cubans are broke. Fifty cars were sold in Cuba during the past 6 months.  The Castros and the...

    Un frickin’ believable! Copies of ‘torture’ report hand delivered to terror suspects, blocked from CIA officials: Full disclosure took a back seat to the CIA’s green movement last week when agency big shots blocked officials from printing out hard copies of the Senate Democratic report on terrorist interrogations, fearing it was “killing too many trees.” Meanwhile, paper copies of the report from Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein were hand-delivered to terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay — though not the rebuttals from the CIA or Republicans on her committee. Oh, the Hillarity: NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday she’s...

    One of the torture boogeymen- one of the architects of the CIA program- did an interview with Megyn Kelly. His perspective and that of "Beale", really should be listened to. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTzwa9S444cFor 9 years, it's been the critics who have been at liberty to shape the battle-space narrative on "torture" as it pertains to the CIA detention and interrogation program that began and ended on Bush's watch (not Obama's), exposed in 2005 by WaPo. And the critics continue to distort the narrative and feed into the worst imaginings and distorted perceptions of our enemies abroad as well as that of fellow...

    Nope. Not their war against Christmas; but their war against our military: The Obama administration is withholding hundreds, perhaps even thousands of photographs showing the U.S. government’s brutal treatment of detainees, meaning that revelations about detainee abuse could well continue, possibly compounding the outrage generated by the Senate “torture report” now in the public eye. Some photos show American troops posing with corpses; others depict U.S. forces holding guns to people’s heads or simulating forced sodomization. All of them could be released to the public, depending on how a federal judge in New York rules—and how hard the government fights...

    Killing children is part of the American ideal. It's who we are, says Obama. On behalf of the democrats on the SSIC Sen. Dianne Feinstein released a report describing what she called "torture." There has been much harrumphing about what is and what is not consistent with American values and what we stand for as Americans. Torture is "contrary to our values" says Barack Obama: President Obama said Tuesday he hopes a Senate report detailing “troubling” CIA interrogation practices will help the U.S. prevent actions “contrary to our values” in the future. “One of the strengths that makes America exceptional...

It reads like a prosecutorial screed rather than a historical document."- Michael Hayden, Former CIA Director from May 30, 2006- Feb 12, 2009 For the most part, the narrative that the CIA tortured, that methods were "brutal", that the program wasn't effective in obtaining intelligence, that it played no role in the finding and killing of OBL, that those involved are war criminals- all of that is pretty much cemented in the minds of a number of Americans who are only reading the headlines and buying...

    That's how radio talk show host and law professor Hugh Hewitt has been describing Senator McCain for years. Tuesday, Senator Feinstein finally saw the release of her Majority Views "Torture" Report. Absent from the 5 year investigation is any participation from Republicans who sit on the Senate Intelligence Committee. They perceived the Feinstein investigation as a partisan exercise. So what we're left with, absent the Minority Views Report, is a non-bipartisan (re: partisan), $40 million investigation tinted and tainted by a Democrat's worldview lens in interpreting the information they used to draw up the Report.

    Rolling Stone magazine has committed a series of astonishing journalistic blunders of late: Rolling Stone magazine has blown it again. First it outraged New Englanders by putting a photo of the accused Boston Marathon bomber on its July 2013 cover — after the horrific terror attack that killed three people and injured more than 260 — that made him appear like a sultry, tousled-hair rock star. But the single worst example of its blinding ineptitude was the UVA scandal: If that wasn’t reason enough to cancel one’s subscription, now Rolling Stone has backpedaled on its story about a woman allegedly...

    Do you ever wonder sometimes why Americans vote? How many times have you heard people say “I don’t vote because my vote doesn’t really matter, those politicians are going to do what they want regardless of how I vote.” In some cases that’s true. Obamacare was a perfect example. In January 2010 Scott Brown won his campaign for the Senate in deep blue Massachusetts by promising to be the 41st vote against Obamacare. The Democrats didn’t care, and despite the fact that 60% of the American people were opposed to Obamacare, they sidestepped Brown and used “reconciliation” to shove the...

    The deeply partisan Feinstein Report is slated to be released anytime now. Possibly tomorrow: CBS News has confirmed that the Obama administration is bracing itself for a Tuesday release of the long-awaited CIA torture report, though the timing ultimately remains at the discretion of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Sources familiar with the matter confirm to CBS News State Department Correspondent Margaret Brennan that Secretary of State John Kerry called and requested, but did not pressure, Sen.

    Ever heard of "RhodeMap RI"? It's HUD's attempt to introduce social equity in Rhode Island. Rhode Island won a $1.9-million grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development in 2011. With that grant, the state developed RhodeMap RI. The result is social engineering at its best. The plan calls for residents to live in "growth centers," densely packed urban centers that are going to be "futuristic, clean, prosperous." That's what the plan says. Sounds like another public housing project to me. Can anyone say "Cabrini Green?" RhodeMap RI is meant to identify "infill and development" areas that are...

    The Democratic Party has lost big time in the nearly concluded 2014 Congressional elections. Only Louisiana’s runoff election between Mary Landrieu (D) and Bill Cassidy (R) remains undecided. Cassidy is going to win. Even the Democratic Party realizes this and has decided not to spend any more money on her campaign. This means that Republicans will have 54 Senators as compared to 45 in the outgoing Senate. Republicans also increased the number of House Reps by at least 12 to 244 and the number of Governors by two to 31. Before the elections, Obama had said, ‘Make no mistake. My...

    What makes a tyrant? Dictionary.com defines tyrant thus: A sovereign or other ruler who uses power oppressively or unjustly. In 1776 the 13 American colonies declared independence from just such a tyrant. Eleven years later the same 13 states came together to write a Constitution that was specifically crafted to thwart the emergence of a new tyrant. The laws were to be written in Congress, where discussion, debate and competing factions would keep them from consistently favoring one constituency over another. In turn those laws were to be executed by the President whose constituency was the whole country. That separation...

He’s doing this very much against the will of an overwhelming majority of American people.

Nonetheless, Barack Obama plans to do it anyway, because he feels he’s right… and because he can. Technically he can’t really...

Wendy Davis has already derided Greg Abbott for being in a wheelchair and now she slides right into the gutter: Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis earlier this month was pilloried in the press for her attack ad that prominently highlighted the fact that her Republican opponent Attorney General Greg Abbott uses a wheelchair. Davis took her attacks to a new level on Monday by strongly implying Abbott would support an interracial marriage ban, despite the fact that Abbott is married to a Latina....

    "Many people have asked how closeSaddam Hussein is to developing a nuclear weapon. Well, we don't know exactly, and that's the problem." -George W. Bush, Cincinnati, Ohio, Oct 7, 2002 In wake of ISIS possibly acquiring and using chemical weapons in Iraq, The NYTimes' C.J. Chivers came out with a piece earlier this week that has reignited debate over the issue of Iraq WMD. Chivers' article that covers old munitions and the plight of OIF soldiers exposed to chemical weapons leakage, is not exactly new news. "Nothing found" is a lie, which much of mainstream belief has embraced due to...

    So what would make Barack Obama cancel a fund raiser? ISIS on the move? Nope. Beheadings of Americans? Nope. On the golf course in ten minutes. A first American Ebola victim? Took a few more minutes, but straight to the golf course. A second beheading victim? Nope. So what did it take? A poll. Obama's ratings are sinking faster than the Titanic. President Barack Obama’s approval rating is at the lowest level of his presidency, a new poll says. According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Wednesday, 40 percent of Americans approve of Obama’s job performance, the lowest score...

    The United States is in the midst of an economic malaise. 92 million Americans are out of work. 35% of the population is on welfare. The economy is barely growing. While incomes for the richest have been skyrocketing, the middle class has seen their incomes decline by 5% in the last 5 years. The federal debt stands at $17 trillion, up $6 trillion since Barack Obama became president. All of this while the Fed has been pumping tens of billions of dollars a month into the economy for years… Although Barack Obama has made much of this worse, the truth...

    In the fall of 2013 the subject of Syria and President Obama's handling of the situation, or lack thereof, was a news item, and there was an interesting side story that slipped under the radar. The Conservasphere had some fun pointing out the hypocrisy of all of the anti-Bush anti-war celebrities who were so righteously against military action against Saddam Hussein but were now silent over the US potentially taking action against Assad (or now ISIS - see how MSNBC is now the war hawk network). It was a fun diversion poking at some leftist elites, and there were actually a handful who stayed true to their...

    Jason Mattera is a conservative activist who has written several books including Hollywood Hypocrites, Obama Zombies and Crapitalsim. He frequently appears on Bill O'Reilly's show. He's been doing some great work and everyone ought to know about it. he confronted Harry Reid to ask Reid how he, while serving in public office nearly his entire life, became a millionaire several times over. Reid refused to respond and his security detail roughed Mattera up. Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isXauApti2I#t=11Mattera proved that Lois Lerner, the IRS official who targeted conservatives for harassment by the IRS, really, really does not like being targeted herself. “Her exclusive...

    Earlier this year it became clear that democrats would be running away from Obama as the election neared: Vocal opposition to the administration’s policies has been another tactic used by Democrats. In his post-speech comments, Arkansas’s Mark Pryor criticized the president for his stances on gun-control and the Keystone XL pipeline. Natalie Tennant, who is trying to hold West Virginia’s Jay Rockefeller’s seat for Democrats, has urged the president to “rethink” his stance on energy and called him “wrong on coal.” “I will fight him or anyone else who wants to take our coal jobs,” she said. But hesitancy to...

    Liberals often live in a fantasy world that ignores the real world right in front of them. They continue to pour trillions of dollars into poverty programs despite the fact that poverty persists and grows. Their go to solution for failing and failed government schools is always spend more money rather than embrace solutions that actually work such as charter schools or voucher programs. It’s no surprise then that their tired solutions rarely ever solve the problems they are ostensibly focused on. Strangely, that dynamic exists even when the problem itself is fiction. The perfect example of this is the...

    When one reviews the list of Wall St. investment banks hammered with large fines and penalties following the toxic mortgage "investigation" one cannot help but notice a glaring omission: Goldman SachsIt's not like there wasn't evidence of their wrongdoing: Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) misled clients and Congress about the firm’s bets on securities tied to the housing market, the chairman of the U.S. Senate panel that investigated the causes of the financial crisis said. Senator Carl Levin, releasing the findings of a two-year inquiry yesterday, said he wants the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission to examine...

    The first case of the "mystery" virus affecting kids all over the country has been reported in Maine. The mainstream press has shown an astonishing lack of interest in the obvious. Over 900 cases of this illness have appeared, scattered throughout the country and they have only one thing in common. The introduction of illegal alien children. How has the press handled this? By ignoring it. At CBSEnterovirus spreads across the nation There is another virus sweeping the country. The enterovirus mostly strikes children and causes a severe respiratory illness.

    What does it take before we're allowed to call domestic Islamic terrorism what it is? When James Foley was beheaded by a Muslim somewhere in the "Levant" the Obama administration called it a "terrorist attack against our country." They called it a "barbaric act."When a woman is beheaded by a Muslim in Oklahoma the Obama administration calls it "workplace violence." It seems that the alleged killer, a convert to Islam, was merely carrying out the dictates of the Quran. Muslims are commanded to fight unbelievers until they are either dead, converted to Islam, or in a permanent state of subjugation...

    In his most recent UN speech Barack Obama went the hopey-changey route instead of traveling down reality road. Even as the U.S. expanded its most significant military operation since the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq a decade ago, Obama watered down his noble-America rhetoric. Instead, he promoted a more benign kind of American optimism likelier to be soothing to the ears of those on the world stage. “I often tell young people in the United States that despite the headlines, this is the best time in human history to be born, for you are more likely than ever before to...

    Way back in 2002, then-Senator Barack Obama had a lot to say about the Iraq war. What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income — to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression. That's what I'm opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics....
