    The First Amendment provides, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (Emphasis added.) As the free exercise of religion comes to be considered old fashioned, irrelevant to daily life and to be opposed "progressively" -- and as political correctness becomes an increasingly common, "modern" and often successful opponent of free speech -- the bright colors of the First Amendment fade into muted...

This was evidenced again yesterday as she maneuvered the Benghazi obstacle course with legendary Clintonian skill; managing to take 100% responsibility with 0% blame. She was a master of the parsed phrase; the queen of evasion,   prevarication, scout’s honor misrepresentation, so help me God and deflection. How dare you suggest… In short: a monument of mendacity.

    On the first thread on this subject, MestaMachine challenged me with: "All Nobel Prize nominees are not exactly trustworthy. " I had the same concern -- so I checked out his Facebook postings. Jim Garrow appears to be as right-wing, pro-Constitution, pro 2nd Amendment as a good FReeper. In fact, Garrow just posted a link to a video that is far better than the article I posted. In it, he is interviewed, (for some 20 minutes) and it is 100% ANTI-0bama. And, on many subjects, he "rips Øbozo a new one"! Obama to Top Brass: Will you fire on American...

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday will celebrate the launch of a newly rebranded organization called the “100,000 Strong Foundation,” which aims to have 100,000 American students studying in China by 2014. Thursday's event will "underscore the importance of study abroad in China and the benefits to our strategic relationship with China as well as the personal benefits individuals receive through these exciting experiences," the news release said. Until now, the 100,000 Strong Initiative—announced by President Obama on his trip to China in 2009—has operated inside the State Department. Thursday's 1 p.m. ceremony marks its transition to a non-profit,...

    It is now official. According to the Federal Reserve of St. Louis, this is the WORST economic recovery in modern US history. This chart shows the recovery in even starker terms. The disappointment in the economic recovery can be seen in today’s Bloomberg Consumer Confidence index which fell today to -36.4. It has not risen above -30 that we last saw in 2008. Moral of the story? Asset bubbles (like housing) are DANGEROUS and don’t let the Federal government enact policies (like Clinton’s National Homeownership Strategy) that nearly destroyed our economy. nhsdream2 But the good news today is that claims...

    The excited grins we saw in the sea of faces at Barack Obama’s second Inauguration told us we lost and the socialists won. They made sure we understood that. Liberal talking heads on television and radio as well as in print and in the blogosphere have been taunting us since November and there is no reason to think they will stop any time soon. Their jobs are now safe for as far as the eye can see. “..segment of Obama supporters are learning that elections have consequences and being on the winning side doesn’t guarantee good times ahead.

    When he stood before the world to deliver his first inaugural address four years ago, President Barack Obama proudly declared, "We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and non-believers." Early in his presidency, he repeated various permutations of this phrase, always reserving the resonant final spot for the "non-believers." During his first term, Obama also occasionally edited the Creator from the Declaration of Independence. "We hold these truths to be self-evident," he said, for example, in a Sept. 15, 2010, speech, "that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life and liberty and...

    Bill Clinton isn't often wrong when it comes to politics, but his assertion in his 1996 State of the Union Address that "the era of big government is over" was a bit premature. In light of President Obama's Second Inaugural Address, the era of big government has just begun. The reliably liberal columnist Dana Milbank of The Washington Post exhibited refreshing honesty when he wrote of Obama's speech, "...it failed to rise to the moment." The president's address was more campaign rhetoric than visionary. He even lowered himself to reference Mitt Romney's inelegant remark about "takers" versus makers. Obama's comment...
  • After 1,460 Letters, Heart-Broken CNN Reporter to Stop Writing President,Lamenting "He Never Called"

    Tom Foreman is a CNN "reporter" who few have heard of. Maybe no one's noticed him because he's been writing letters to President Barack Obama. Often. Every single day, in fact. For four years. That's 1,460 letters... What precisely was in the letters, on top of the sheer number of them, is particularly disturbing. The joy that this exercise gave Foreman at times is all the more unnerving. Mr. Foreman often ended letters asking the President to "call when you can," because he knows he's busy. He told him about "a guy [who] started giving [him] a hard time" in...

But in the eyes of his worshipping electorate, he is something. He is a leader. A Messiah. A Führer. The Thirteenth Imam. The Mahdi. The Prophet. The savior of the ages, the man on horseback who comes to save a nation from itself. Because he is nothing, he must work miracles, and turn gold into lead. He must prove that he is something.

    Remember all those mainstream news reports before the election about how President Obama's expansive spending plans would require massive tax hikes on everyone, not just millionaires and billionaires? Neither do we. But somehow after the election, reporters are finally admitting that Obama's budget numbers simply don't add up and that new taxes on the middle class — including a European-style value added tax — are "inevitable."

    Almost a decade ago, Europeans and many progressive Americans were lamenting how the United States was going to miss out on the 21st-century paradigm symbolized by the robust European Union. Neanderthal Americans were importing ever more oil while waging a costly "war on terror" and fighting two conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our budget deficit in 2003 hit $374 billion. The EU avoided foreign conflicts and embraced soft power. Its declining military budgets and centralized transnational government ensured that it could address global warming and fund ever-expanding entitlements. Even the poorer Mediterranean nations reached new heights of prosperity. The Greek...

    Newsweek stopped its print edition at the end of 2012, but they still tried to scandalize the country by producing a fake cover honoring Obama's second inauguration as "The Second Coming." This absurd attempt at myth making is a natural progression. The "cover" story was written by Evan Thomas, who proclaimed on MSNBC a few years ago that Obama was "sort of like God" in being above the gritty political fray. It was just as absurd when Newsweek writer David Frum, the formerly conservative Bush speechwriter, tweeted this piece of media-elite nonsense: "First term Obama: punchee, 2nd term Obama,...

    Here it comes already: apparently stocking up on billions or rounds of ammo (25 shots for each and every Republican), supplying DHS with a panzer division, and purchasing body armor/bulletproof checkpoint booths wasn't enough to make our 'likeable; president feel secure- So besides attempting to snake your guns, Obama is now taking on the military establishment, demoting officers who dare to ask questions -or are unwilling to fire on US citizens- while this dangerous nut attempts to seize control of (and politicize) the Pentagon as thoroughly as he has just about every other federal agency in existence. As was recently revealed, a new military...

    In his recent presidential directives President Obama has added something that most publications have been silent about; forcing doctors, and other health care providers to ask questions regarding gun ownership of patients. Ostensibly this is to 'find crazy people before they do something' but it reeks of the same system of informants the KGB used in an era before people happily posted all their private thoughts on the Internet. Is this truly an effort to keep people safer, or a sign of things to come? Anyone who's read Solzhenitsyn knows how the KGB employed informants and quotas to counter anti-revolutionary...

Garrow was nominated three years ago for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize and is the founder of The Pink Pagoda Girls, an organization dedicated to rescuing baby girls from “gendercide” in China. Garrow has been personally involved in “helping rescue more than 36,000 Chinese baby girls from death.” He is a public figure, not an anonymous voice...

    Overextension is a classic way to snatch catastrophic defeat from the jaws of victory. Examples include Napoleon's invasion of Russia, Hitler's decision to start a war with Russia before he finished his war with Britain, and Operation Market Garden. The latter debacle was the origin of the phrase, "A bridge too far." Overextension is often the result of hubris, the delusion of invincibility as exemplified by Napoleon and Hitler. The enemies of the Bill of Rights have similarly assumed they could exploit the blood of the murder victims to revive an agenda that had been put down hard in 2000,...

    Senior Colonel Liu Mingfu of China's National Defence University has raised the specter of a nuclear war, and warned Australia not to side with America and Japan. Liu is not an official spokesman for China, but his views are approved. Referring to the dispute between Japan and China over the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands, Liu said that China was prepared to fight "to the death": America is the global tiger and Japan is Asia's wolf and both are now madly biting China. Of all the animals, Chinese people hate the wolf the most. If this Japanese wolf again attacks America's Pearl Harbor...
