  • Russian Attack Sub Off Our Coast As Sequestration Looms

    Defense: The fruit of unilateral disarmament, appeasement and promised "flexibility" patrols our East Coast near one of our largest ballistic missile submarine bases. Defense cuts and Russian subs — a double whammy. 'On June 1 or a bit later, we will resume constant patrolling of the world's oceans by strategic nuclear submarines," Russian Navy Commander Admiral Vladimir Vysotsky said in February. Keeping that promise, a Russian Sierra-2 class nuclear attack submarine cruised within 200 miles of our East Coast on the eve of a U.S. presidential election in which defense spending and priorities were a key issue. This is the...

    Fox News and other media outlets have projected that President Obama has been reelected to a second term. If, in celebrating his victory Obama wanted to give credit where credit is due, he might want to think about calling some of America's top journalists, since their favorable approach almost certainly made the difference between victory and defeat. Reviewing the 2012 presidential campaign, here are five ways the media elite tipped the public relations scales in favor of the liberal Obama and against the conservative challenger Mitt Romney:

    When single women vote with their sex organs, gay marriage becomes popular, marijuana becomes legal, young people and blacks want entitlements instead of jobs and millions of illegals vote with their stupidity, you can count on the liberals in our education system to outperform themselves by dumbing down America so the sheep will put socialists and liberals in power.

    "Gentlemen don't read each other's mail" "Gentlemen don't read each other's mail," declared Secretary of State Henry Simpson as he closed the code breaking operation of our State Department. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed and the OSS was formed to do just that and we know how that turned out. Using Simpsonesque logic, Republicans tried to defeat an opponent who would lie, cheat and steal by staying above the fray and we know how that turned out. We elected a president who presented a birth certificate that an Arizona Sheriff's Posse says is a forgery—has a questionable draft registration card and...
  • So, Does Barack Obama have a mandate?

    In the aftermath of any victory, presidential candidates proclaim a new mandate to move forward on the values of their campaign. Barack Obama will probably be no different, but National Journal's Ron Fournier warns that claiming a mandate after this election would be politically dangerous --- and a fantasy: Barack Obama won a second term but no mandate. Thanks in part to his own small-bore and brutish campaign, victory guarantees the president nothing more than the headache of building consensus in a gridlocked capital on behalf of a polarized public.If the president begins his second term under any delusion that...

    Only the Americans, with the help of Russia, China and, most of all their fair-weather ally Pakistan, can save Afghanistan and put in place a regional mechanism for enduring peace, post-2014 The most hotly debated and contentious security and foreign policy issue of the century is Afghanistan or AfPak, if you like. Starting as a war of choice for the US following 9/11, it has become a war Washington and its allies want to abandon and forget. The turnaround for President Barack Obama in consigning Afghanistan to a ‘good enough’ policy from one that focused on ‘nation-building’, indicates the declining...

    Last night was an absolute shock to the system, because Americans decidedly rejected a decent and competent man with a real plan to get this country back on its feet. Instead, the Ministry of Truth succeeded in pushing voters to choose four more years of wild spending, government intrusion, chaos, and ineptitude. It’s tempting to lash out and succumb to anger this morning…and waking up today knowing that Barack Obama and the Left would be in power for another four years was cold and numb…since it just didn’t seem possible that Americans would want to subject themselves to an actual...

    The good news is, we survived the storm. The bad news is, we survived the storm. And the chair’s still empty. (snip)If there is a moral to this story it is that voting is indeed the best revenge. Better, even, than voting your lady parts. Of course if you vote for both revenge and your lady parts, you end up with 70% of the single lady vote. Do nice guys always finish last? Apparently. And assuredly, when the only kind of class anyone will vote for anymore is “warfare.” If these are your foot soldiers, you might want to...

    The coming demographic tidal wave I feared has officially arrived. Barack Obama, despite all his failures and treasonous scandals, actually increased his vote with minorities. As I said months ago, we cannot continue to lose over 90% of the black vote, 75% of the Latino vote, and expect to win. It’s too much to overcome being Democrats continue to appeal to more women while still getting a sizable share of white voters. When I touted Marco Rubio and Allen West for VP it was exactly because of these inescapable facts. And for the record, I love Paul Ryan and think...

    A newly re-elected President Barack Obama will push for higher taxes -- including a dividend-tax hike that will cause a substantial drop in stocks, Pimco's Bill Gross told CNBC Wednesday. Obama will get little time to enjoy his election victory Tuesday, as he will have to get to work quickly with Congress to avoid the nation's "fiscal cliff" of looming mandated tax increases and spending cuts. One likely remedy for revenue-raising will be to take the current dividend tax rate of 15 percent and hike it five to 10 percentage points, said Gross, co-CEO at the firm that runs the...

    The day after the election, 8-employees of a Florida based company were individually called into the office of management and informed that their services would no longer be needed following the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. The owner and his company cannot be named for fear of legal hassles and thug reprisals, even though Florida is a "right-to-work-state". He had previously let it be known to trusted individuals outside the company, that if Barack Obama was re-elected, the healthcare laws and other anti-business policies the Obama admistration is pushing would force his company to down-size, and that his down-sizing would begin with...

    I stayed up as late as I could - as late as I had to - to confirm what I had suspected for some time - President Barack Obama was reelected to another four year term of office. I slept surprisingly well. Not because I am not worried about the future of Nation and the freedom of the Church under the coming second Obama term. I am deeply worried. But because I knew I had done everything that I could to ensure a different result and that the future is in the hands of a loving God. ...There are serious...

    According to one Tea Party leader, the reason for Mitt Romney’s loss to President Barack Obama is that he was not conservative enough and was “weak-kneed” and a throwback to Bob Dole and John McCain. The President Bush’s were not named, however. In a press statement, entitled “Tea Party Vows "No Retreat" and a subtitle “Promise to search out candidates with clear conservative records; no more Dole-McCain-Romney nominees”, the group leaders said the following:

    President Barack Obama won a second term last night and must now begin the hard work of cleaning up the mess left by the man who held the office for the last four years. In his first term, Mr. Obama presided over an unprecedented expansion of the federal government. He and his Congressional accomplices increased our national debt by $5.4 trillion and burdened the country with trillion dollar deficits ever year. President Obama 2.0 will begin his term trying to fight off sequestration; the deep spending cuts and crippling tax increases due in January because he kicked the problem of...

    St. Paul said, "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable." 1 Cor 15:19. Of course, I was disappointed Romney lost, but it is not as if the Bolsheviks have toppled and killed the Czar and his family, yet. President Obama will not have an easy time this next four years, and it is very hard to foresee the nation's economy increasing, much less our morality - which is the engine of a prosperous nation as opposed to pure economic gain. China could be doing much better with its regimented society working for...

    President Obama won re-election last night because women voters had his back. A majority of women supported Obama’s re-election, more than countering Romney’s lead among men, exit polls showed yesterday. The president garnered 54 percent of the female vote compared with 44 percent for Romney. Historically, more women vote than men.
