  • Veto Threat: Administration Wants to Hike Healthcare Fees for Military

    The audacity of the Obama administration never ceases to amaze. On Friday, they threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill because it, in part, does not include hikes in healthcare fees for members of the military. The House bill  passed 299-120 in May. The official policy statement offers this objection: TRICARE Fees and Co-Payments.  The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation.  The Administration asks the House to reconsider the TRICARE fee proposals, which are essential for DOD to successfully address rising personnel costs.  The $1.8...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: So the regime is using the Department of Homeland Security to punish Obama's enemies. I saw a great phrase at a blog post on PJ Media: Obama went "Soviet" on Arizona. Let me read to you from that post. "This is a political maneuver designed to punish Arizona, which" had the audacity... I mean, what is this really all about? Obama is not enforcing immigration law. Arizona is falling apart. A responsible governor says, "All right, well, we're going to write some laws to give us the ability to enforce the border ourselves." And you don't do...
  • From a Glorious Burden to an Annual Burden, Obama has Ruined His Presidency

    The White House is trying to recast president Obamas image- again. This time he's an eager reformer just trying to do away with all the red tape getting in the way of the economy. Since the class warfare thing didnt work, the Sandra Fluke thing alienated the very voters- Catholics- who provided Obama his margin of victory in 2008 and Americans are becoming disenchanted with a president who, honest-to-goodness, thinks everything is fine- except that taxes are too low- why not try casting Obama in a part wholly and utterly unbelievable? Obama wants to be known as the president who...

    On Wednesday the Department of Energy began financing solar power installation research with a $2 million award to Solar Mosaic. The solar energy research company has former Obama green jobs czar Van Jones listed as an advisor. It also employed Rebuild the Dream, Jones firm, to do its public relations work. The DOEs grant money will be distributed to nine companies in four states. Solar Mosaic received the most money, four times the amount of most other grants. Jones resigned his post in the Obama administration three years ago amid controversy stemming from his past remarks. Before working in the...

    Two of President Barack Obamas closest allies, former senior advisor David Axelrod and Attorney General Eric Holder came close to blows immediately after a Cabinet meeting, according to a new book to be released next week. Only the intervention of senior adviser Valerie Jarrett prevented the two men from throwing punches, Daniel Klaidman claims in the book, Kill or Capture. Politicos Mike Allen got an advance look at the book, which is due to hit stores on Tuesday, and revealed the altercation in the West Wing which started when Holder accused Axelrod of trying to place a political operative in...
  • Obama OKs Oil Exploration Along Atlantic Coast, But Not Drilling

    ABC News via Yahoo! News ^ | March 8, 2012 | Devin Dwyer
    The Obama administration today endorsed new oil and gas exploration along the Atlantic Coast, setting the stage for possible future drilling lease sales. The announcement by the Interior Department sets into motion what will be at least a five year environmental survey to determine whether and where oil production might occur. There are also no guarantees the administration will approve drilling permits at the end of the environmental review. "The president's actions have closed an entire new area to drilling on his watch and cheats Virginians out of thousands of jobs," said Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Wash., who chairs the House...

Jeremiah Wright and Saul Alinsky on the streets of Chicagos South Side. Now we know his real radical hidden agenda is in service of the Kremlin.

    As President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev ended a public conference in South Korea (a nation demonstrably threatened by North Korean ballistic missiles), a still-open microphone inadvertently recorded a stunning tete-a-tete. The brief but jaw-dropping act of personal diplomacy yoked U.S. and Russian arguments over missile defense systems, a serious international security issue of long-term geo-strategic consequence, to Obama's short-term domestic political plan to secure his own re-election come November. The whispered exchange: Obama: "On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it's important for him (Putin) to give me space." Medvedev:...

    Telegraph ^ | Nile Gardiner
    Ronald Reagan, together with Margaret Thatcher, stood up to Moscow, and brought the Soviet Empire to its knees. In contrast, Barack Obama has gone on his knees to grovel before the Russians. The exchange between President Obama and his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev in Seoul was a display of supplication before a major strategic adversary on an issue of great importance for US national security missile defence. -excerpt- Barack Obamas comments are disturbing on several levels. First, they display a willingness to placate Americas enemies, and cede ground over issues of national interest. Second, Obama is linking foreign policy...

    The US government is sending an arms shipment to Egypt a former US ally that just elected an anti-American Islamic regime into power. The Arab Times reported, via Lucianne: Amnesty International has called on the United States to clarify the final destination of an arms shipment it said was headed to Egypt, in a statement late on Thursday. The London-based rights group had earlier said the shipment may be abused by Egyptian security forces, which had fired at protesters in deadly protests in recent months. But the US Navy said the shipment would not be offloaded in Egypt without...

  • Obama lobbying Dems over Keystone XL pipeline (Obama demands Senate Dems reject pipeline)

    Politico ^ | 3/7/2012 | By MANU RAJU
    President Barack Obama is intervening in a Senate fight over the Keystone XL oil pipeline and personally lobbying Democrats to reject an amendment calling for its construction, according to several sources familiar with the talks. The White House lobbying effort, including phone calls from the president to Democrats, signals that the vote could be close when it heads to the floor Thursday. The president is trying to defeat an amendment that would give election-year fodder to his Republican critics who have accused him of blocking a job-creating energy project at a time of high gas prices.

    What does a Koran cost? You can get a full color one for the Kindle for only 99 cents, just don't expect it to feature any pictures of old Mo. If you want to go deluxe, you can get a hardcover edition that runs three different translations side by side for around 40 bucks. But if you want to be more practical about it, the price of a Koran is the lives of six American soldiers. That butcher's bill doesn't count the soldiers who burned the Korans, who despite following procedure will be penalized on orders of the White House...

    President Obama plans to head out on a 3 day trip arriving in Las Vegas Wednesday afternoon and staying overnight well into Thursday. That afternoon he will leave for Denver and then Detroit. The president plans to promote his State of the Union address.

Barack Obama's attempt as a candidate to be on the state ballot in Georgia has been officially legally challenged by state...

    A year ago this week, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered. He died protecting his country from brutal Mexican gangsters. Two AK-47 assault rifles were found at his death site. We now know the horrifying truth: Agent Terry was killed by weapons that were part of an illegal Obama administration operation to smuggle arms to the dangerous drug cartels. He was a victim of his own government. This is not only a major scandal; it is a high crime that potentially reaches all the way to the White House, implicating senior officials. It is President Obamas Watergate. Operation...

    It was a week of risk-taking in the 2012 presidential race. Barack Obama, his job approval languishing in the low 40s, delivered a much heralded speech in Osawatomie, Kan., framing the choice between the parties in class-warfare terms. That's a risky strategy. Democrats haven't won a presidential election on class warfare since 1948, when Obama's mother and Newt Gingrich were 5 years old. Al Gore, in a year when political scientists' formulas pegged him as an easy winner, ran on a "people versus the powerful" theme and managed to win only 48 percent of the popular vote and lost in...
