    With America in the grips of its first government shutdown in 17 years, President Barack Obama promised U.S. troops and Defense Department staff early Tuesday that he will fight for them and declared that they "deserve better than the dysfunction we're seeing in Congress." “Unfortunately, Congress has not fulfilled its responsibility,” Obama said in a video message broadcast on Armed Forces Television. “It has failed to pass a budget and, as a result, much of our government must now shut down until Congress funds it again.” Obama recorded the address late Monday but was broadcast after the midnight deadline to...
  • Sharpton on Chris Lane Murder: ‘I Protest When I’m Called In’

    (CNSNews.com) – Rev. Al Sharpton said Thursday that he did not protest the murder of an Australian man who was gunned down in Oklahoma because no one called him and there was no racial motive. “I protest when I’m called in and when there’s an injustice,” Sharpton said on his MNSBC show “PoliticsNation” in response to a viewer’s question of whether he would issue a statement regarding the murder of 22-year-old Christopher Lane, an Australian baseball player, who was shot in the back while jogging near his girlfriend’s home in Duncan, Okla.

    R. Lee Ermey, the actor best known for his role as the drill sergeant in Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket," claims he was fired by GEICO for criticizing President Obama. After being asked about his GEICO commercial wherein he played a psychiatrist calling his patient a "jackwagon," Ermey said, "GEICO fired me because I had, I wasn’t too kind about speaking with the, about the administration, so the present administration. So they fired me." "So they fired you because of political reasons?" asked the TMZ representative. "Yeah," Ermey answered. "If you’re a conservative in this town, you better watch out."

    Barack Obama skipped the 8th hole rather than be filmed by TV crews at the Vineyard Golf Course on Friday. The Boston Globe reported: But it was later, at the Vineyard Golf Course in Edgartown, where the president’s recalcitrance was most evident. Approaching the eighth tee in a golf cart with friend and frequent golfing buddy Eric Whitaker, the president noticed three TV cameras and a Globe photographer across the street. Rather than stop and be photographed teeing off, the president skipped the hole.

    WASHINGTON – Despite fresh pressure from tea party conservatives, House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday that Republicans "can't impose our will" on the White House and Senate Democrats on legislation to cut tens of billions of dollars in federal spending. At a news conference, Boehner, R-Ohio, denied Democratic suggestions that he has already agreed to jettison nearly half of the $61 billion in cuts passed by the House a month ago

    New Speaker Vows to Share Power—a Tricky PropositionJANUARY 4, 2011 By NAFTALI BENDAVID And PATRICK O'CONNOR When John Boehner takes over one of the most powerful jobs in Washington this week, he says his first order of business is to make himself less powerful. On Wednesday the new speaker of the House of Representatives plans to offer a package of rule changes that, he says, will give minority-party members more of a say and decentralize power. In short, Ohio Republican Mr. Boehner is promising he'll be a different figure from many speakers throughout history—from Republican Joseph Cannon a century ago...

    I have to admit, “jackwagon” is now one of my favorite words. It came into my vocabulary courtesy of R. Lee Ermey via the great series of Geico commercials in which a “former Drill Sergeant make[s] a terrible therapist.” Here then is the former Drill Sergeant himself, in an appearance from earlier in the month at a Toys 4 Tots benefit, giving his opinion about President Obama. Warning: it’s not for crybabies! So let’s just let Obama and his crew chug on over to mamby-pamby land, shall we, while we start to take back our nation. With guys like R....
