  • Trans-Pacific Partnership Deal Reached! Now What?

    Cato @ Liberty ^ | October 5, 2015 | Daniel J. Ikenson
    After six years of negotiations, a final Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement has been reached in Atlanta.  Check your pacemakers, trade policy wonks. This is about as exciting as it gets in our world.First, congratulations are in order for the TPP negotiators, who worked extremely hard over the past several years in an environment of profound public skepticism – much of it driven by pervasive scaremongering – to arrive at this moment. Reaching accord on a broad array of subjects between 12 countries at different levels of economic development with disparate policy objectives is not a task for the faint of heart.Second, there...
  • I am worried about Obama's Oregon visit tomorrow ~ Vanity

    10/08/2015 5:14:15 PM PDT · by GraceG · 66 replies
    I have read several stories about Obama visiting the small Oregon town where the shooting occurred, specifically the stories about how the Town doesn't want Obama there. I don't know what it is, but every-time I have read these stories I got a chill down my spine. Like there is some sorta set-up taking place. I dunno why, but if the left is so desperate to get gun control I feel all it would take is an incident in this town while the president is there to solidify the left's push for gun control. Again, not sure why I get...

    The main objective of the political-media establishment and, in particular, Barack Obama is to prevent any post-election investigation of the rampant corruption in Washington DC. Both the Democrats and the Republicans want to maintain their standing as permanent political elites, whereby they may continue to treat ordinary Americans as indentured servants and broker the tax revenues for the benefit of themselves and their wealthy donors. It is clear that the Obamas and Valerie "Rasputin" Jarrett hate the Clintons and do not want to risk "payback time" from a vindictive and ruthless President Hillary. The Obama strategy is stretch out the...

    President Barack Obama held a press conference today to announce signing into law a bill that prevents U.S. media outlets from naming the shooting suspect in any of their news coverage. This is is tyranny. His illegally seized power cannot usurp our first amendment and the rights of the freedom of the press. For years Islamic supremacists like Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Rauf and others demanded that the media stop reporting on jihad terror because it might cause islamophobia (euphemism for opposition to jihad terror). It was unthinkable before Obama. Now that they have their stooge in the White...

    When we read the papers or turn on the television (for those of us who have television), hardly a day or two passes by without the mention of new (or ongoing) actions by the Chinese government in a military capacity. Within the past year alone, China has extended her reach steadily beyond her own territorial waters and nearby sea-lanes. She has participated in numerous exercises, some of them jointly with foreign nations. Anyone can clearly witness her aggressive, outwardly expanding policies regarding territory and flexing her muscle. The most recent maneuver comes on the heels of the Russian actions in...

    Last week, in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, President Barack Obama took to the microphones to deride anyone who did not agree with his gun control agenda. Stating that it was only good and right to "politicize" the Oregon shooting, Obama stated, "This is a political choice that we make to allow this to happen every few months in America. We collectively are answerable to those families, who lose their loved ones, because of our inaction." Obama then called for "modest" gun regulations, without specifying the nature of those "modest" gun regulations. No...

    Todays U.S. military is shrinking and using older equipment as troops face more deployments and emboldened adversaries abroad, according to a new report that lays out a plan to revitalize American defenses. The new report from the American Enterprise Institute said that Americas military power has been declining ever since the first wave of cuts in the aftermath of the Cold War. The Army has dwindled from a size of 535,000 troops in 1991 to 450,000 during the Obama administration, for example, and the U.S. Naval fleet now has 282 ships compared with 451 at the end of the Cold...

Murdoch, who has repeatedly praised Carson in recent months, tweeted: Ben and Candy Carson terrific. What about a real black president who can properly address the racial divide? And much else. He then directed followers to an article in New York magazine that he said showed minority community disappointment with the presidents record. However, his earlier tweet directly implied that Obama, whose mother was a white American and whose father was a Kenyan studying...

    When Hillary Clinton rolled out a series of new gun control proposals this week, one of the most newsworthy and controversial ideas she put forth was a vow to use executive action as president to fix the background check system if Congress refused to act. But the Obama administration has already taken a long, internal look at the same executive-action proposal Clinton has promised to undertake, and has doubts over whether it can be made to work in practical terms, according to current and former senior administration officials. The administration is still looking at this idea, in the wake of...

"This means that either our partners do not have such coordinates, or that they for some reason do not want us to hit these targets. The reason for this remains unclear to us," Kartapolov said, cited by RIA Novosti.

The goal is to have the entire caucus, minus perhaps one centrist Democrat, backing a legislative package aimed at preventing guns from ending up in the hands of the wrong people. In addition to background checks, Democrats are aiming to add new money for the Justice Departments existing background checks system that has recently faltered and include...

During a speech at a White House summit on working Americans, the president drew a direct link between drops in union membership and the stagnation of most workers wages. Mr. Obama also said that workers anxiety about their job security and whether theyll be afford to feed their families contributes to anti-immigration sentiment and other...

He was even right, in a sense, when he defended politicizing the tragedy. "Of course," Obama said Thursday night, "what's also routine is that somebody, somewhere, will comment and say, 'Obama politicized this issue.' Well, this is something we should politicize. It is relevant to our common life together, to the body politic." This was a nice Aristotelian flourish. "Man is a political animal," Aristotle said, and it is through politics that...

    In the run-up to the creation of ISIS, in the handling of the Syrian crisis and in the reaction to Russia's strikes against terrorists, we see yet another shining and blatant example of sheer hypocrisy and pig-faced insolence from the West. Who the Hell is Obama to opine about anything after his country's record? So NATO is expressing "concern" about Russia's strafing of terrorists with military hardware... Well, well... Did NATO express "concern" about its strafing of civilians with military hardware in Afghanistan? Did NATO and its puppet-master Washington express "concern" about the illegal act of butchery, the intervention in...

    The Census Bureaus 2014 American Community Survey (ACS) reveals that Arabic and Urdu Pakistans national language are the fastest-growing foreign languages spoken at home, according to a new report by the Center for Immigration Studies. Between 2010 and 2014, there was a 29 percent increase in Arabic, a 23 percent increase in Urdu, and a 9 percent jump in Persian, which is spoken in Iran. Every year the United States voluntarily imports more than a quarter of a million or 280,000 Muslim migrants (this figure includes permanently resettled immigrants, guest workers, refugees and foreign students). Arabic is now the...

    Within hours of the killings at Umpqua Community College in Oregon last week, President Obama stepped to the White House lectern, admittedly without all the facts of the case, to shamelessly politicize the tragedy. Somebody, somewhere will comment and say, Obama politicized this issue. Well, this is something we should politicize, he said. Perhaps Obamas open politicizing of the issue wasnt the worst part, but instead it was his intellectual dishonesty when it comes to the common-sense gun laws he wants implemented. Whats become routine, of course, is the response of those who oppose any kind of common-sense gun legislation....
  • Any stories of Obama buyer's remorse?

    I was having a chat with a friend of mine earlier today. She is one of those so- called "independent" voters. Back in 2008 she enthusiastically campaigned for Obama, thinking it would usher in a brighter future. In 2012 she again supported Obama, mainly because she was turned off by Romney's "47%" comment. Fast forward to today and now it is a different story. None of her expectations happened. She really believed everyone would get along and all that liberal kumbaya nonsense. She believes things are worse off now and that she feels duped by him. I asked her how...

  • Ten Reasons Why Obama Should be Given a Second Nobel Peace Prize

    It is high time to recognize President Obama tireless activity on behalf of world peace with the Second Nobel Peace Prize. Here are ten main reasons why this second Nobel Peace Prize should be awarded.10. By condoning if not encouraging the agencies that spied and eavesdrop on everyone from a common criminal to a President and Kanzler, he reminded the citizen of the world of their common humanity, their sense of brotherhood. Having recognized this, humanity will surely ignore its religious, political, economic, or social differences and will strive for peace.9. He truly achieved Pax Americana by constantly trying...
  • Josh Earnest: Obama may do executive action (again) on guns

    Fresh off Hillary Clinton announcing she was going to do gun control without Congressional authority, President Barack Obama appears to be leaning the same way again. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Monday it was time to get serious about keeping guns from certain people. The president has frequently pushed his team to consider a range of executive actions that could more effectively keep guns out of the hands of criminals and others who shouldnt have access to them. Thats something that is ongoing here. How this is different from the 2013 executive orders, no one is saying....
