    Gun sales hit an all-time, one-day record one week ago, driving Black Friday retail sales and actually overwhelming the FBI’s background check center twice. What’s causing the gun-buying zeal? The answer is simple – the actions of a man who hates private ownership of guns, Barack Obama. He’s been doing it for a long time. His election in 2008 drove gun sales through the roof. And now it’s happening, again, because he is supporting the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty that requires member states unable to disarm their populaces to be placed under the jurisdiction of the U.N. Office of...
  • Should Republicans leverage going off the fiscal cliff?

    The Washington Times ^ | November 29 | Henry D'Andrea
    In the heated fiscal cliff discussions, Congressional Republicans are failing to use the only card that has been dealt to them: go off the fiscal cliff. President Obama’s big fiscal cliff announcement this week that Congressional Republicans should cave to the Democrats’ demands of letting the Bush-era tax cuts expire for top income earners has left few Republicans actually considering the president’s absurd proposal. If the Republicans in Congress feel that since Barack Obama won reelection, they must cave to all his fiscal demands, they’ve proven themselves stooges. Still and all, Republicans have agreed to raise revenues but Democrats have...

    A new report shows that the gap between the rich and the poor in the US is significantly wider than it used to be, with the annual median wage falling to $26,364 in 2010 while the high-earners increased their wealth by 71 percent. The New York University report found that in 2010, the median net worth in the US reached its lowest point since 1969 at $57,000. Conducted by Professor Edward Wolff, who has studied Americans’ net worth since 1983, the report provided some surprising revelations about the extent of the income inequality. While the middle class lost 18 percent...

    The portfolio of embattled United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice includes investments of hundreds of thousands of dollars in several energy companies known for doing business with Iran, according to financial disclosure forms. Rice, a possible nominee to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she steps down, has come under criticism for promulgating erroneous information about the September 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans. Rice has the highest net worth of executive branch members, with a fortune estimated between $24 to $44 million, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. A Free Beacon analysis of Rice’s...

    We need a catchy keword for Obama Taxes. Last term it was Obamacare, which has a negative connotation to many people. The hiking of the tax rates for working Americans is the Goal of the Obama Administration. Period. The reason: the free-loaders of this country [who expect working Americans to support them] do not want their benefits cut. At one time, people referred to Massachusetts as Taxachusetts Maybe some catchy phrase might be found to put a label on Obama and his tax plan.

    Residents living near the beachfront homes where President Barack Obama and First Family vacation with their friends every year since 2008 were alerted on Monday to some specifics of the Obamas' holiday vacation plans. The report delivered to residents living along the ocean and canal that surrounds the multi-million dollar homes at Kailuana Place where the President stays, informed them of restrictions that will be implemented for 20 days beginning December 17 and running through January 6. In a matter of weeks, Kailua residents will see the familiar street barricades fronted by U.S. Secret Service agents and Navy Seals and...

    Word is slowly seeping out for Washington about a grand bargain being worked out between Barack Obama and John Boehner. As we hear about the negotiations, the obvious question to be asked is, does Boehner and the Republican leadership in the House even have a clue? What is going on that is so dangerous? The Republicans are going to surrender on taxes. According to published reports a deal is going to be made. It is your typical Republican deal. The GOP will agree to a trillion in new taxes and there will be spending cuts in the future. When will...

    We apprehensively advance through this nail biting moment in history as a great Nation floats, uncertain, caught in a holding pattern, hoping its leadership will find wisdom enough to avert the so called Fiscal Cliff, even if most of us don’t fully comprehend what such a cliff entails, or even if such a thing exists. We’re too busy struggling, hanging on to whatever we have, hoping for stability, and hoping that tomorrow brings some relief to our stress.So let’s look for a little insight into what astute and gifted minds are really doing deep in the core of the...

    Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Wednesday that House Republicans should stop negotiating with President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats on the fiscal cliff, saying that by doing so, they give Obama all of the leverage in the talks. “One of the things I would say to House Republicans is to get a grip,” Gingrich said in a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. “They are the majority. They’re not the minority,” he said, enunciating the words as if explaining the concept to someone who did not understand it. “They don’t need to...

    Conservative HQ ^ | 11/12/2012 | George Rasley
    Experienced negotiators, and poker players, always look for the opponent’s “tell” -- that one little blink or tic that helps them see through the opponent’s deception to reveal what the opponent is really thinking or what cards he really holds. For those Republicans who thought Obama was actually serious about avoiding the government’s “fiscal cliff,” he just blinked and revealed his cards – and they show a hand that Democrats have held before and know how to play to entice Republicans into making a sucker bet. What Obama said to reveal his hand was that Congress should pass his tax...

    We are cruising towards the fiscal cliff. The John Boehner leadership of the House is fighting Barack Obama and the Party of Treason. The issue is will some or all of the Bush tax cuts be extended and will there be cuts in spending or will the so-called “sequestration” kick in and force automatic and ill-advised spending cuts in key areas like defense. Is there an alternative to this mess? If there is, what is it? Here is the alternative. Do nothing. Will that be a good thing? Not really. It is simply better than the alternative. Why is it...

    Not saying that I support the second part, but I'm tossing that into the mix just to see what people think... If 1A (by law) had to precede 1B (1A triggered 1B), with the two inextricably tied together by law - 1A being spending cuts and 1B being the closing of tax loopholes - would Dems go for it? Secondly, would Dems, banks and the Federal Reserve --- would they be in favor of 2A preceding 2B (the two also being tied together by law): 2A being ongoing payments on the principal (The PRINCIPAL) of the federal debt outstanding and...

    Ah, Chicago and its politics. There's no other American city quite like it. Fortunately. It's a beautiful city from the outside. And a political cesspool inside, a seeping source of conniving and corruption that spawned Barack Obama and his top aide Valerie Jarrett and is now ruled by the president's ex-chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. Another amazing chapter in the Windy City's sordid politics began unfolding Wednesday, one whose lineage can actually be traced back to the very beginnings of Obama's political career, which now has an extended expiry date of Jan. 20, 2017. Today, Obama lunches with the man...

    It´s been more than 10 years since President Bush signed his first round of tax cuts into law. And in the years since, those cuts have been the source of constant attacks. [snip] But a decade of debate and discussion has managed to shed little light on what the Bush tax cuts actually did. So as the debate heats up once again as part of the "fiscal cliff" negotiations, it´s worth taking the time to highlight some of the things most people never knew about the Bush-era tax cuts.
