  • Obama Finally Upset About Uncontrollable Migration – Here’s The Pathetic Catch

    Tea Party ^ | 5/3/2016 | Staff
    You might think that Barack Obama woke up on the conservative side of the bed. He started ranting and raving about how uncontrollable migration is a national security threat to our country. That’s great, but before we congratulate him on his reasonable change of rhetoric, there is just one catch. He wasn’t talking about migration to our country! From The Daily Caller: “What happens in Europe is going to have an impact in the United States,” Obama said. “We consider it a major national security issue that you have uncontrolled migration into Europe. Not because these folks are coming into...

I recently wrote about the trouble that radical leftists have caused by attempting to disrupt Trump campaign events, but now there is a very organized effort to turn this into a national movement. On March 19th, thousands of angry protesters will descend on Trump Tower in New York City to denounce Donald Trump’s “fascist policies”, and on April 2nd dozens of leftist organizations will join...

But Senate Budget Committee Chair Mike Enzi (R-WY) and House Budget Committee chief Tom Price (R-GA) issued a joint statement tonight saying Donovan wasn’t welcome to testify because the administration wasn’t serious about addressing the...

    Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron of Agana, Guam has posted a message on his archdiocesean website stating that the “true intention” behind the push for same-sex marriage “has always been about the destruction of the family and the imposition of a totalitarian system.” The archbishop also predicted the next step in the process would be to use the education system so “that our children, your children, will be forced to assimilate to this pattern of non-gender.” “It is important to understand that the political pressure to push the agenda for same sex ‘marriage’ has never been about gay rights; the true...

    Dr. Mary Gatter, President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council, was seen in a second video released yesterday by the Center for Medical Progress, haggling over fetal organ procurement compensation. While the haggling was by far the most damning part of the conversation, Dr. Gatter also mentioned off-hand her involvement with political action and research on various issues in the abortion industry – one of them being, in her words, an ultrasound study yielding “nuanced” results. Despite the fact that multiple studies prior to this one have found that close to 80 percent of women change their minds and choose...

    The White House is in a state of shock today after receiving word that the US is halfway to a new recession. They were so dazed, they actually blamed Man Made Global Cooling. The GDP for the first quarter was originally announced as a gain of .2%. Today that number was revised to a drop of .7%. The definition of a recession is when the GDP comes in at a negative number for two quarters in a row. That means we are officially halfway to a new recession. The delicious irony is that after Obama decided to honor our troops...

    The hullabaloo over false information being propagated about Indiana’s Religious Freedom and Restoration Act (RFRA) reveals a much more serious underlying problem in America. Morality according to the 3 Percent (the gay community in America) is defined by imposing conformity, control, coercion, and oppression over those who disagree with their definition of equality, fairness, tolerance, or even love. The 3 Percent’s “outrage” cannot be about equal rights, as same-sex couples already benefit from civil unions, domestic partnerships, marriage, adoption and fostering children, in addition to receiving health benefits and other legal rights. Nor can it be about fairness. I recently...

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” McCain was asked what he would say to his GOP colleagues in Congress about making sure DHS is funded by Feb. 27. “I would put sufficient blame on the Democrats for not allowing us to move forward in the Senate.

    When NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell handed down a mere a two-game suspension for domestic violence, he took his cue from some of the very same women's groups now calling for his head. Goodell first suspended Ray Rice, a star player, for two games four months after Rice's grand jury indictment for third-degree aggravated assault. A hotel video showing Rice dragging his then-fiancee's limp body out of an elevator "went viral." Rice reportedly admitted to Goodell that he punched her in the face, knocking her down. For this, Goodell suspended Rice just two games. The protests over the light punishment turned...

It’s sobering and frustrating to consider that each and every time social conservatives raised the cultural alarm throughout the last five decades, pointing out that each new manifestation of the Sexual Revolution would lead to devastating consequences, they were written off with derisive laughter. They were accused of “provoking a moral panic,” or being “stuck in the past” or “too prudish.” The “slippery-slope” arguments of...

Before feminism was hijacked by militant activists such as Code Pink, and yes, even the heralded NOW, it was designed to empower, support, and defend the rights of women regardless of their personal lives and attributes.

    DENVER – Russia’s annexation of Crimea and ongoing intimidation of Ukraine appears to mean the end of a 25-year period whose hallmark was an effort to bring Russia into greater alignment with Euro-Atlantic goals and traditions. Now the question is: What comes next? As the weeks pass, it is increasingly clear that the challenge is not so much Ukraine – which will continue to lurch from one crisis to the next, as it has since independence 23 years ago – as it is Russia and its regression, recidivism, and revanchism. Exactly 25 years ago, in the spring of 1989, Poland...

Others may have noted before but I never knew one of the lines in the song was, "But I'm still an embryo With a long, long way to go." I guess they didn't view embryos as lifeless tissue at the time?

    As Ariel Castro, the convicted kidnapper, rapist and baby killer, shuffled off in chains to the hoosegow, I thought why was there so little reportage or commentary about his idiotic statement made in an Ohio courtroom. Is it because the man himself is so repugnant? Is it because his transgressions against society are so repulsive? I think it is both and one thing more. Americans have heard all this claptrap before. We are familiar with the rumblings of a sociopath. A sociopath, in plain language unadorned by the psychiatrists' hocus-pocus, is a person who does not know right from wrong,...

    Two weeks ago I reported on the $250 million real estate boondoggle by the General Services Administration whereby the GSA is moving the Coast Guard out of an existing, below-market lease at the cost to taxpayers of $250 million dollars.  Today I’m reporting on another, MORE EXPENSIVE real estate boondoggle by the GSA, which leads me to believe that if Congress is really serious about making real cuts to federal expenses that they can start with some easy cuts on federal real estate and personnel costs at the GSA. That’s because according to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure,...
  • Cleveland's kidnapper/rapist animal will put baby killers at NARAL in a web of their own making

    The terrible ten year rape/ kidnapping ordeal suffered by three innocent Cleveland women at the hands of Ariel Castro, a registered Democrat (look it up) may yet put the baby killing crowd at NARAL and NOW in a web of their own evil lies. Their captivity included daily rapes and the predictable pregnancies that followed. The startling evidence shows Castro’s depravity extended to stomach punching pregnant victims to cause miscarriages thereby murdering at least five innocent babies. That Castro’s crimes are revolting and demand the death penalty is a widely held sentiment; but what will women’s organizations do or say?...

    On the rear windows of cars, I have seen NOW with a cross superimposed over the "O" for a few years now. What does it mean or symbolize? I have searched the internet for an answer and can't find anything but the symbol itself without an explanation.

    January 31, 2013 Women against Bob Menendez? How about a Democratic woman? Michelle Malkin Conservatives are always told they don't do enough to reach across the aisle. We're divisive, obstructionist and hostile to bipartisanship. So in the spirit of unity and comity, I'm announcing the formation of a new social justice group: Ladies Against Senator Sleaze-Bob. Now all I need are some principled Democratic ladies and liberal media lionesses to step up to the plate with me to protest the vulgar, sexist behavior of Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J. Surely, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Cher, Sandra Fluke, Eva Longoria and...
  • Hands Off New Mexico’s Abortion Rights Laws

    It’s curious how often the people who are against the government laying a hand on their guns are the same people who want the government to put its hands all over our lady parts. New Mexico appears to have mostly bucked this odd incongruity, maintaining its wild West gun-loving ways while staying relatively relaxed on abortion and birth control issues. Recently, for instance, the national SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective rated New Mexico No. 1 in the nation for providing equal access to sexual and reproductive health services. But as the Legislature rolls along, two female lawmakers are...
  • Roe v. Wade, at 40, needs an abortion, NOW

    Today, approximately 400,000 pro-life activists are gathering in Washington D.C. to protest the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, which legalized abortion throughout the nation. The march is usually held on January 22, but was moved to January 25 because of the presidential inauguration. In contrast, the pro-abortion rallies assembled by the National Organization of Women always attract a much smaller crowd.

    Here we sit on the good ship USA sailing merily along. We have tried repeatedly to tell passengers that there is an ice berg dead ahead, a fiscal cliff, Greece, etc. Despite our warnings they have not and will not listen to us. We have tried to tell the people about the pain being caused to them. Again, they will not and have not listened. Instead, they voted to not only stay on the ship but to stay on course. Understanding how (some) of the electorate got there is important. In my opinion some of it starts with the nature...
