  • How Barack Bamboozled Catholics

    Real Clear Religion ^ | November 9, 2012 | George Neumayr
    The most anti-Catholic American president ever scooped up the Catholic vote again, winning half of all Catholics. This is down four points from 2008, but it is still an impressive feat after four years of persecuting the Church.Historians will no doubt record the grim irony of his achievement with some wonder. He has now won the Catholic vote twice and boasts an honorary degree in law from one of the Church's most prestigious universities, all while breaking her. Saul Alinsky, who pioneered the technique of bamboozling and exploiting the Church, would be proud.Obama also won the religious vote in general...

    Out of 175,554 registered voters, 247,713 vote cards were cast in St. Lucie County, Florida on Tuesday. Barack Obama won the county. When faced with the astronomical figures, Gertrude Walker, Supervisor of Elections for St. Lucie County, said she had no idea why turnout was so incredibly high. She was flabbergasted, saying, "We've never seen that here." Coincidentally (or not), St. Lucie County is also in Allen West's district, where 6,000 votes mysteriously "shifted" from Mr. West to his challenger.

Down in Broward County, Florida, Mr. Obama came away with more votes than he garnered in 2008, a particularly staggering accomplishment considering he received fewer state-wide totals in both Florida and across the country. How exactly did he accomplish this? Well, in part thanks...

    CIA Director David Petraeus today submitted his letter of resignation to President Obama. The move was announced in a statement by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. The excuse he has cited is an extra-marital affair. Iím not buying it. The timing just before some of the the most serious Congressional hearings of our time, (the Benghazi hearings) next week, is more than intriguing.

    Newly re-elected President Barack Obama offered on Friday to deal with Republicans to avert a looming U.S. fiscal calamity but insisted a tax increase for the very rich must be part of the bargain. Obama reminded Republicans that his approach to avoiding steep tax hikes and spending cuts due in January, which could trigger another recession, had just won the backing of Americans at the polls. He spoke just hours after John Boehner, the Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, had repeated his party's commitment not to raise anyone's tax rates as part of a deal to address the...

    A Time For Choosing ^ | November 8, 2012 | Gary P. Jackson
    On Wednesday, Greta put up a poll asking her readers who they thought, at this moment, was the leader of the Republican Party. Readers responded by choosing Sarah Palin by an overwhelming margin over the rest of the field. Reading the comments itís pretty plain that many feel Sarah could have fared far better against President Obama than Governor Mitt Romney did. Judging how well Sarahís hand picked candidates for office did, vs how those in the standard GOP mold under-performed, itís not much of a stretch to think Sarah herself would have done well and likely led the party...

    During the Presidential campaign it became quote apparent that Barack Obama was a big fan of Jay Z and Beyonce. As of September 14 Obama had tweeted more about Beyonce and Jay Z than he had about Benghazi. Just one of President Barack Obamaís last 47 tweets from his official campaign account mentioned the crisis unfolding in the Middle East or the four Americans who lost their lives in a fiery attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Tuesday. Among the tweets sent out by Obamaís Twitter account included a chance to win tickets to an Obama event...

    Second Amendment: Within hours of re-election, the administration fast-tracked a treaty in the United Nations that transcends borders and tramples our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. It was no coincidence. Less than 24 hours after President Obama's re-election, the U.S. Mission to the United Nations helped move the U.N.'s Arms Control Treaty a step closer to enactment. America joined 157 other nations in voting Wednesday to finalize the treaty in March. None was opposed and there were 18 abstentions. U.N. delegates and gun-control activists had complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican...

    A newly energized President Barack Obama told the public in his first address since Tuesdayís election that he was doubling down on his ultimatum to block any fiscal reform proposal that did not raise taxes on top-earning Americans. With Congress poised to tumble off a fiscal cliff composed of sequester budget cuts and expiring tax breaks on the first of next year, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has taken a conciliatory tone, saying House Republicans would work under the presidentís leadership to find compromise...
