    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Back in 2011, when the town fathers of Columbus, New Mexico, announced they were disbanding their police department, giving Luna County sheriffs soul authority to protect and defend Columbus residents, they sighted cost savings as the primary reason. However, the citizens of this small New Mexico border town knew better.A federal indictment accused 12 people of forming a criminal organization that sold weapons to Mexico's notorious Juarez Cartel. Columbus Mayor Eddie Espinoza, Police Chief Angelo Vega and Blas "Woody" Gutierrez, a Columbus village trustee, were among the 12 named in the indictment, accused of aiding the Obama administration...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:While President Obama took to the airwaves in his weekly radio address, urging Congress to "act soon" in passing sweeping gun-control measures, the Phoenix Drug Enforcement Administration announced that it recovered 43 weapons Obama's Justice Department sold to Mexican drug gangs as part of its infamous Operation Fast and Furious.According to ABC's Phoenix affiliate KNXV-TV, Phoenix drug enforcement agents recovered the weapons after arrests were made near the Phoenix-Tolleson border. "Four of the suspects are listed as undocumented immigrants. The fifth suspect had been admitted to the United States under a non-immigrant visa," said KNXV-TV.In a 2011 letter...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Democrat Joe Morissey rose to his feet in the Virginia House of Delegates to protest the tabling by that body's Militia and Police subcommittee of his Obama-like gun-control measure. To emphasize his point, he hoisted an AK-47, single-handed, over his head, pointing the weapon's muzzle at the ceiling - like a celebratory Taliban fighter at a traditional Afghan wedding. "... You can take this gun," said Morrissey, "you can walk in the middle of Main Street loaded and not be in violation of the law."In response, Republican Delegate Todd Gilbert quickly rose to his feet and made a...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon: President Ronald Reagan's Attorney General, Edwin Meese, told NewsMax that if President Obama issues an Executive Order unilaterally imposing gun control, bypassing Congress, the 44th president risks impeachment. The former top cop is very old fashioned, and out of touch with modern America.By old fashion, I mean Meese's presumption that America is a nation of laws and not men. That Obama believes he can rule by royal proclamation is a product of supreme confidence; a confidence born of the eroding force of law on government power. Re-interpretations by the nation's Progressive high court allow today's government to...

Obama made these remarks with a straight face.Of course, to "pay the bills" the President and Congress have "already racked up" requires borrowing many more trillions of dollars - moving America toward the deadly debt-to-GDP ratio of 80% (we are currently at 73%).

As Congress's inability to deal with the fiscal cliff and debt-ceiling issues prove, saving bloated government, not the liberty and financial solvency of 311 million Americans, is Washington's priority.A microcosm of the problems facing America is playing out in France.

    By Mr Curmudgeon:One can't help but notice the many liberal newspapers jumping off the Obama bandwagon. Many are hitching their crumbling credibility to Mitt Romney's winning steed: the Des Moines Register; the Tennessean; the Orlando Sentinel; and the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel to name a few.But Obama can take comfort that the Big Three remain steadfast in their support: the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune.The Times claims "Mr. Obama prevented another Great Depression" and "prevented unemployment from reaching 12 percent." Tell that to the 23 million unemployed that currently make up the 14.7% of Americans...
  • Sandy, Sandy, why, oh Sandy? (John Travolta)

    There is precious little doubt, this is the song playing in most Democrat operatives heads this morning. If it's not, it should be. For all the BOOMERS out there, we all remember the scene at the drive-in theater where John Travolta made his feeble attempts at getting a bit to frisky with the luscious Olivia Newton-John (Sandy). She of course re-buffed his advances, jumped out of the car and left us to hear Travolta's rendition of the song " Sandy ".Sandy Why-Oh-Why is one of the lines in this musical score, and I am sure this is the line replaying at...

    The official story surrounding the events of September 11, 2012 in Bengzahi, Libya which left four Americans dead, has now officially fallen apart.After numerous flips and flops by the Obama administration, which originally attempted to paint the incident as a Muslim outcry over an anti-Islamic video, whistle blowers throughout the U.S. government, including within the White House, the State Department, national intelligence agencies and the U.S.military have made available stunning details that suggest not only did operational commanders have live visual and audio communications from drones overhead and intelligence assets on the ground, but that some commanders within the military...

    Mr Curmudgeon:During the third and final presidential debate held in Boca Raton, Florida, conservative columnist Ann Coulter Tweeted, "I highly approve of Romney's decision to be kind and gentle to the retard." Many among the media elite were highly offended that Coulter would use 'retard' to describe the man they consider the savior of America - President Barack Hussein Obama.Mitt Romney, who bested the president in the three-game series - as evidenced by his post-debate rise in the polls - proved to the American people, if not the media, he is knowledgeable and, more importantly, the only serious candidate of...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Denial is not a river in Egypt. That in effect is the theme of the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel's Friday editorial endorsement of Mitt Romney for president. "When President Obama came into office in 2009, the economy was in freefall and though untested, he inspired us with promise of hope and change. Now, four years later, we have little reason to believe he can turn things around," said the Sentinel."... Rather than articulate a compelling vision for growth," continued the Sentinel, "the president falls back on the tired talking point of increasing taxes for the wealthy ... it's...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:When President Obama and his Democratic allies in Congress drew their plan to take over American medicine, the dictatorial Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) comprised some 2,700 pages. It was so enormous Nancy Pelosi - then Speaker of the House - urged her Democratic members to pass the bill "so that you can find out what is in it."Obama's Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, made the most of his three presidential debates by offering a clear economic plan of across-the-board tax cuts to grow the American economy. With Romney surging in the polls, a desperate Obama unveiled his alternative economic...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Fox News reports that their network obtained copies of State Department e-mails proving the Obama administration knew the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya was the work of an Al Qaeda-affiliated terror network and not a mob angered by an anti-Islamic video posted on YouTube.A State Department e-mail sent to the White House Situation Room two hours after the attack reads, "Ansar al-Sharia (an Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist group) Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack."The administration's cover story, blaming the attack on a Libyan mob angered by an American-made anti-Islamic video, was obviously meant to deflect blame from...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:A headline in Sunday's Washington Post foreshadows doom for President Obama's re-election hopes: "In Close Presidential Race, Foreign-Policy Debate Likely to Prove Pivotal." No two events are more damning of Obama's foreign policy initiatives than his administration's support for the Arab Spring, which inspired the president's ill-conceived military intervention in Libya.During the second presidential debate, President Obama expressed outrage that Romney would question his administration's attempt to pin the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others on a "spontaneous" Libyan mob reacting to an anti-Islamic video posted on YouTube.Any "suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:Here in battleground Florida, Obama received something of a shock. The Orlando Sentinel newspaper, which happily endorsed him for president in 2008, announced it is backing his Republican challenger in 2012."Economic growth, three years into the recovery, is anemic. Family incomes are down, poverty is up. Obama's Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, highlighted these and other hard truths in this week's second debate," said the Sentinel in its lead editorial on Friday, "We have little confidence that Obama would be more successful managing the economy and the budget in the next four years."The newspaper even engaged in a little...

    ©2012 by Anthony James, all rights reserved As the 2012 presidential election draws closer, the time for fanciful dalliances is past. Months ago, many among my conservative acquaintances were quite vocal in their lack of confidence in the soundness of the RNC's choice for the GOP's anointed standard-bearer, former Massachusetts Governor, Mitt Romney. Their sincere and well-founded concern lay in the fact that, over his political career, Governor Romney has displayed leanings that went way too far to the left. Whatever may have been his more laudable accomplishments in the political arena, staunch conservatism was assuredly not among them. That this lack...

    Mitt Romney holds 8 higher education degrees" bachelors, masters, 6 doctorates. What do we know about President Obama? He surrendered his law license in 2008 and all his educational transcripts are under seal so that no one can learn about who he is. What an amazing difference between Mitt Romney and President Obama. The differences are so stark and obvious. Is it any wonder Romney crushed Obama in the debates?

With only a few weeks remaining before Americans go to the polls to elect the next President of the United States, it wouldn't do to have it known their candidate, President Obama, is receiving campaign contributions from agents representing communist China.It's Dejŕ vu all over again.

    Just when you think the Obama juggernaut has reached new lows on corruption and fraud out pop new allegations that are in the realm of science fiction. It would appear that 68% of web traffic donors on Obama.com may come from foreign sources a clear violation of Federal law. And if that is not bad enough, Obama administration officials may be storing its correspondence on private computers so that they can destroy incriminating evidence as quickly as it is created. What the hell is happening in this country?
