  • Obama Administration Repositioning Homeland Security Ammunition Containers

    The containers are usually painted olive drab and are unmarked except for indistinguishable numbers/letters probably for inventory, routing, etc. Reader Don sent this in recently: Jim – I passed a convoy of olive drab unmarked 40 foot tractor trailers each with four 10 yard ammo bunker boxes chained to them and unmarked armored Hum-Vee’s heading north on I-95 in Brevard County, Florida this past Thursday morning. The “govt” is positioning these ammo storage boxes, I have been told, in strategic places in population centers around the country. They are usually painted olive drab and are unmarked except for indistinguishable...

    If you really want to annoy somebody, do their job for them in a very public way. This is an angle of the growing separation between American localities and the federal government. From general discontent, to increasing non-participation, to open calls for secession, the public in most states have had enough and are actively driving wedges between themselves and Uncle Sam. When states and local law enforcement join the party, then it is only a matter of time before realignment or divorce becomes reality. After calling for inept, unworkable and unproductive gun control laws (forgive the redundancy), Barack Obama has...

    In an interview with the New Republic Barack Obama hinted at his gun control plans. Part of the plan is to undermine Republicans from the start. President Obama is suggesting that House Republicans on the issue of gun control appear neither willing to work with him nor listen to the American public on the issue. The House Republican majority is made up mostly of members who are in sharply gerrymandered districts that are very safely Republican and may not feel compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion, because what they're really concerned about is the opinions of their specific...

    All of Obamas inauguration rabbis were members of the same radical leftist groups opposed to Israel and funded by George Soros. This isnt a wacky coincidence because the J Street Rabbinic cabinet isnt that big. Instead Obama deliberately picked three extremist left-wing clergy, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, Rabbi Julie Schonfeld and Rabbi Sharon Brous. Jacobs and Brous are or were members of the J Street Rabbinic Cabinet, an Anti-Israel organization funded by George Soros. The Rabbinic part is a name only as these people are not legitimate clergy, they are left-wing activists dedicated to the destruction of Israel and Judaism.

    As the U.S. government continues to expand surveillance and monitoring systems to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars within the borders of the United States, a recent announcement regarding the countrys southern air defense systems is raising eyebrows. Our southern border is, in part, protected by the Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS), which utilizes moored balloons hovering at about 15,000 feet to identify low flying aircraft and missiles that may penetrate the border and cross into U.S. airspace. The system is utilized by the U.S. Air Force, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), and U.S. Customs and Border...

    I've got a simple idea: Let's give up on the Constitution. I know, it sounds radical, but it's really not. Constitutional disobedience is as American as apple pie. For example, most of our greatest Presidents -- Jefferson, Lincoln, Wilson, and both Roosevelts -- had doubts about the Constitution, and many of them disobeyed it when it got in their way. To be clear, I don't think we should give up on everything in the Constitution. The Constitution has many important and inspiring provisions, but we should obey these because they are important and inspiring, not because a bunch of people...

    On the morning of Obamas 2nd inauguration, January 21, 2013, Barack and Michelle received a powerful message of TRUTH from Pastor Jonathan Cahn, one that must have infuriated both of them greatly. This courageous pastor delivered a Presidential inaugural message that directly refuted the Black Liberation Theology of hate professed by Obamas Reverend of 20 years, Mr. Jeremiah Wright. Pastor Cahns inspired message effectively repudiated Obamas entire world view, his leadership style and his political priorities. As anyone paying attention knows, almost every word spoken by Obama is a calculated deception, one designed to insult Believers, agitate conservatives, denigrate Americans...

    Those who work for a living might want to put away shoes, hammers, and other hard objects to keep from throwing them through the computer. A new study shows that on average the government spends $168 per household on various assistance programs, one-fifth more than the median income of $137. As the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee reported (after all, who else in government is going to do it?), welfare spending per hour per household in poverty is $30.60, which is higher than the $25.03 median income per hour. The Weekly Standard points out that direct welfare payments...

    RACINE COUNTY Partly in response to the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare as well as other forces Aurora Health Care expects $13 million less in government reimbursements this year and has begun cutting some positions. Earlier this month Aurora President and CEO Dr. Nick Turkal laid out the financial situation in a 1,020-word letter to all system employees. He warned of position eliminations and discontinuations to come. Turkal said there are several causes of the projected $13 million or more decline in reimbursements. He cited the economy, cost reductions dictated by the Affordable Care Act and the...

    Hospitals are expected to cut some 93,000 jobs in 2013 in anticipation of ObamaCare. A former presidential candidate and conservative advocate says America needs to prepare for major changes in the medical industry. Orlando Health, a not-for-profit network of community and specialty hospitals, is just one example of the massive layoffs expected in the coming year. Officials with the Central Florida-based healthcare services provider announced on Monday that the largest staff reduction in its nearly 100-year history will result in cutting up to 400 jobs, starting immediately. Gary Bauer, president of Washington DC-based American Values, warns that this is only...

If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh...

    Comprehensive immigration reform could make millions of people suddenly eligible for assistance under President Obama's healthcare law, assuming a final deal paves the way for undocumented immigrants to receive papers. Illegal aliens are now prohibited from purchasing coverage through the Affordable Care Act's insurance exchanges, which will launch next year. They are also ineligible for Medicaid under most circumstances, making the law's expansion of the program fruitless for people without documents. Even young illegal immigrants with "deferred action" status, known as "DREAMers," cannot access the law's benefits. But the picture could change completely if Hispanic lawmakers get their wish ...

    It was Lincoln who said "Give me a general who will fight!" That was after the North was defeated over and over again by Robert E. Lee's smaller and more agile armies. Lincoln's first generals fought desperately hard, but not hard enough to win. In the upshot, the Civil War dragged out to became our bloodiest war ever, 600,000 dead -- mostly white folks. And yes, it was triggered by Christian Abolitionists who made slavery morally intolerable to half the nation. Lincoln was therefore forced to find generals who would fight, and he found Sherman and Grant, who wreaked terrible...

The Obama administrations original announcement of a jobs council back in 2011 surprised few observers of the partisan political scene; the council was obviously designed as a fig leaf to cover up the administrations complete lack of direction on economic policy. During its two year existence, that fig leaf council has met just four times formally, and just 18 times informally for listening and action sessions i.e. gobbledygook in different locations around the country. And while President Obama has suggested that...

Weren't both acts of war taken without Congressional authority? Doesn't the Constitution vest the war-making power in Congress? The issue is a complex one with many nuances, Kerry replied.

    Full headline: Before he was overthrown and killed, Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi warned jihadists would conquer northern Africa During the dying days of his four decade rule, Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi cast an ominous prophecy. If his regime fell, jihadists would subjugate northern Africa, inflicting widespread violence and terror. Al-Qaeda considers all the people to be infidels, Mr. Gaddafi declared in a speech weeks before NATO began its military intervention in Libya. They deem all people their enemies. They know nothing but killing. The Islamists would pour in from Afghanistan, Algeria, and Egypt, he warned, saying, These are beasts with...

    The guy is pretty good. It's too bad that there's nothing funny or quirky about Barack Obama that one could parody.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio's lead Obama investigator Mike Zullo appeared on Carl Gallups' radio show Freedom Friday. Zullo repeated that the Obama investigation never stopped and that the only thing that stopped is the media coverage around the investigation.... Zullo says; "We are so convinced... let me go out on limb... I am going to put my reputation out there that we have evidence beyond a reasonable doubt--the higher standard--beyond a reasonable doubt that this document is an utter forgery." Zullo also says; "the evidence we have acquired, new found evidence that we have never made public at any point in...
  • 'Hot' Guns Fueling Crime, US Study Says (Captain Obvious to the rescue!)

    Christmas is the one day of the year that Wal-Mart is closed, but for a group of four New Mexico burglars, it was the perfect time to stop in for some firearms. Video surveillance cameras caught the masked burglars red-handed, stealing rifle after rifle. Police arrested the four men, and were able to recover the guns. But all too often, stolen weapons end up in the hands of criminals. The New Mexico caper is part of a flood of gun thefts nationwide. And it's not only commercial gun dealers vulnerable to theft. Guns are a top target for home burglars...
  • Businesses struggle to keep up as gun sales skyrocket

    01/27/2013 6:51:48 AM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 44 replies
    Assault rifles have become hot ticket items as gun control talks amp up. Its tremendous, the increase in sales that weve had, weve increased ammo sales, AR-15s, you name it, Larrys Gun Shop representative Ron Abernathy said. Stores statewide are struggling to keep up with the rush. Even ammunition has been hard to come by as gun owners stockpile supplies. Theres a lot of people that are scared [they wont be able to buy, following new gun control regulations], and thats a lot of the reason for ammo being scarce and hard to find, Abernathy said.

    The mainstream media covered the inauguration of Barack Obama with breathless anticipation on Monday, but should we really be celebrating another four years of Obama? The truth is that the first four years of Obama were an absolute train wreck for the U.S. economy. Over the past four years, the percentage of working age Americans with a job has fallen, median household income has declined by more than $4000, poverty in the U.S. has absolutely exploded and our national debt has ballooned to ridiculous proportions. Of course all of the blame for the nightmarish performance of the economy should...

    President Obama says he regularly skeet shoots at Camp David and called on gun-control proponents to do a little more listening to gun owners in the national debate over firearms. In an interview with The New Republic posted on Sunday Obama said that he and guests do skeet shooting all the time at the presidential retreat and said he understood why many rural voters were protective of their gun-ownership rights. Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there. And I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations,...
  • Obama's Abuse of Power (ruling potentially invalidates dozens of NLRB decisions)

    01/27/2013 3:55:17 AM PST · by Libloather · 10 replies
    Meantime, the ruling potentially invalidates dozens of NLRB decisions since the illegal recess appointments were made. A similar mess occurred in 2010 when the Supreme Court ruled in New Process Steel v. NLRB that some 600 decisions made by the NLRB without a three-member quorum were invalid. The decision also means that Mr. Cordray has no authority to run the consumer financial bureau, which has been busy issuing thousands of pages of regulations since he was illegally imposed in the job. Mr. Obama renominated Mr. Cordray this week, which is an insult to the Senate and after this ruling to...

    When President Obama announced his sweeping new plan for preventing gun violence on January 16, it included no fewer than twenty-three executive actions, in addition to a series of legislative proposals. The message was clear: in the face of congressional intransigenceon gun control and beyondObama will push changes through the executive branch that he believes to be for the good of the country. Congress too must act, and Congress must act soon, Obama said, while making it clear that the White House will not wait for the GOP-controlled House. It was not the first time the president has flexed his...
