  • Obama policies are pro-Islam

    President Obama has an anti-colonial, pro-Islam policy. He maintains deafening silence about Islamic imperialism (manifested as jihad and sharia doctrines of Islam, which have always caused and continue to cause havoc across the world), but apologizes at every opportunity for Western colonialism. Whereas the Nazis killed six million Jews, Islamic Jihad has killed 120 million Africans, 60 million Christians, 80 million Hindus and 10 million Buddhists, according to the Center for the Study of Political Islam. Whereas Colonialism brought science and technology to many parts of the world, Islamic Imperialism brought no benefits to those it oppressed. President Obama maintains...

    Chris Christie is immensely popular and is a huge favorite for reelection in New Jersey this year, with voters from across the political spectrum giving him the thumbs up. When it comes to the national conservative base, though, the governor is at risk of earning a different one-finger salute. Christie is already on probation with some conservatives for his praise of President Obama’s work on Hurricane Sandy in the closing days of the 2012 election — something a few critics have even suggested put the president over the top. Now the potential 2016 presidential contender has lashed out at the...

    During the third debate of the 2012 presidential campaign, Mitt Romney talked about Mali and the danger al-Qaeda represented there. The Obamamedia laughed and derided Romney, carrying Barack Obama’s water and continued advancing the fraud that Obama had decimated al-Qaeda, even though al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists had taken over an American consulate and killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya just weeks prior. Surprise!!!! Al-Qaeda in Mali is a serious enough threat that the French, THE FRENCH!, have invaded Mali to fight them there. It looks like Romney was indeed correctly focused on foreign threats, al-Qaeda is not decimated but in fact...

    A congressional report found that foreign companies have been large beneficiaries of stimulus funds and received billions of dollars funds meant to promote green energy development and create jobs in the United States. The House Energy and Commerce Committee staff examined Treasury Department data and found that nearly one-quarter of the $16 billion in Section 1603 green energy grants went to a handful of large European and Asian renewable energy companies. “Billions of dollars have filled the coffers of overseas firms while the evidence of the promised permanent jobs and economic growth here in the United States is scarce,” reads...

    The Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, also known as the Harrisburg Gun Show, has announced it will limit the type of firearms that it will allow to be exhibited. “We have made the decision not to include certain products that in the current climate may attract negative attention,” they posted on their website. The hunting and fishing show, the largest consumer event in the nation, offers 1,200 exhibitors and will run from February 2 – 10, 2013, just outside of Harrisburg, PA. A representative to the show told the Daily Caller that “no specific information was available on the type...

    The terrorists who attacked the In Amenas gas complex in eastern Algeria appear to have been of several nationalities, and may have trained in jihadist camps across the border in southern Libya, according to sources familiar with the situation there. Algerian security sources told Reuters late Thursday that the militants whose bodies had been recovered from the complex so far included three Egyptians, two Tunisians, two Libyans, a Malian and a French citizen. -snip- A U.S. official told CNN Wednesday that the hostage-takers appeared to have crossed the Libyan border -- some 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the gas complex...
  • President Obama Undermines Case Against Universal E-Verify [re: gun control]

    "First, it's time for Congress to require a universal background check on anyone trying to buy a gun." These were President Obama's words as he outlined his plans for gun control legislation on Wednesday. FAIR takes no position on gun issues, but the president's unequivocal support for universal checks demonstrates two things: The president does not consider background checks to be an infringement on anyone’s constitutional liberties, andThe president does not consider there to be any technological impediments to carrying out universal checks before someone is permitted to purchase a firearm. In making his statement, President Obama also negated the...

    Being born in the Deep South when the Jim Crow laws were in full force and seeing, firsthand, the cruelty and downright stubborn foolishness of segregation and all it's attendant inequities, I have a very vivid and candid impression of what the word "racist" really means. Having lived through those days and, on my own, shook off the yoke of racial prejudice that was once so firmly ingrained in me, I deeply resent the careless and reckless use of the word by people who are merely trying to be insulting, having absolutely no idea of the gravity of it's meaning....

    President Obama's plan, announced Wednesday, to curtail gun violence in the wake of recent mass shootings is drawing both criticism and praise in the gun-loving state of Texas. The president is calling for Congress to implement background checks for all gun purchases and to ban certain assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Republican Gov. Rick Perry said the president's plan "disgusts" him and that it is an effort by the political left to use the killings to accomplish an anti-gun agenda. He called for prayer and a rejection of evil, as opposed to gun regulation. But Sen. Rodney Ellis, D-Houston, said...

    In an unprecedented move, President Barack Obama’s vaunted political organization is being turned into a nonprofit group—funded in part by corporate money—to mobilize support behind the president’s second-term agenda. Democratic officials familiar with the plan said Thursday the tax-exempt organization will be called Organizing for Action and seek to harness the energy of the president’s re-election campaign for future legislative fights. Officials said the group will be separate from the Democratic National Committee and advocate on key policy issues such as gun control and immigration, train future leaders and devote attention to local issues around the nation. … Coming just...

    According to the US Census Bureau, the poverty rate in the USA soared to 15% by the end of 2011. Poverty, of course, is linked to unemployment and partial employment. Here is a chart of US poverty compared to the U6 measure of unemployment. Perhaps when the Census Bureau updates their poverty survey for 2012, it will have improved. Of course, the poverty numbers suffer from the infamous “devil is in the details” problem. The Heritage Foundation, for example, digs deeper in the causes and measurement of poverty. Poverty can include Section 8 housing, big screen televisions, food stamps and...

    Welcome to the world of “reality TV politics” — or maybe the right word is unreality. Call it “Liberals Unleashed — 2013!” As hungry for your cash as a “Walking Dead” zombie, as math-challenged as Honey Boo Boo’s mom in a dollar store, and as self-serving as the worst “Bridezilla.” After six years of exploding state spending and steady tax hikes, is Gov. Deval Patrick even a little embarrassed about pushing a $2.8 billion-per-year income and business tax increase? Not a bit. President Obama, having jacked up the debt by almost 60 percent in just four years announces it’s time...

    I’m a peaceful, law abiding citizen. I’ve never so much as thrown a punch in a fist fight. Don’t have temper tantrums, not much of a sports fan. Never played football, baseball soccer, or hockey. Batted a few tennis balls around in high school, and that’s not false modesty; I considered it a great accomplishment if when I got the ball over the net. As a sportsman, I was a great reader. But I loved to shoot. I practiced marksmanship in my high school indoor range with the school’s .22 rifles. I saved up and got one of my own,...
