  • White House Petition to Charge ‘Treasonous’ Senators for Iran Letter Breaks 100,000 Signers in One

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 3/10/15 | Kristinn Taylor
    A petition posted to the White House’s ‘We the People’ do it yourself petition site on Monday calls for prosecution under the Logan Act of the forty-seven U.S. senators who signed a letter initiated by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) to the Iranian government about the negotiations for a nuclear deal between the Islamist state sponsor of terrorism and President Barack Obama. The petition accuses the senators of having committed a “treasonous offense” and violating the Logan Act which prohibits U.S. citizens from conducting unauthorized negotiations with foreign powers. Signers of the petition rocketed it past the 100,000 minimum signers set...

    Not since Santa Claus was in short pants has anyone been as generous as Obama when it comes to bestowing gifts. But unlike Santa, Obama insists on rewarding those who have been naughty and turning into Scrooge when it comes to those who are nice. Although all it would take to bring about immigration reform is for Obama to build a 21st century fence along our southern border, he keeps it as porous as possible because he wants the nation flooded with future Democrats.

    Something of much greater concern than the tedious YouTube fiasco wound up coming to the fore as a result of one of GloZell Green’s questions for our president. Green (who, like too many black people, also happens to be irrevocably indoctrinated into leftist racial orthodoxy) asked Obama what could be done to prevent violence by white police officers against black males, such as in incidents last year in Ferguson, Missouri, and New York City.

    On January 15, 2014, the Congress approved H.R. 3547 – the “Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014,” which is now awaiting the President’s signature. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 seemingly removes key protections for the Firearms Industry. For those unfamiliar, I previously wrote about the last appropriations bill, HR 2112, the “Fiscal Year 2012 Agriculture, Commerce/Justice/Science (CJS) and Transportation/Housing/Urban Development (THUD) Appropriations bills,” in my article ATF Appropriations Bill – New Limitations, Including on the Importability of Shotguns!.

    Diplomacy: After a reprieve from international regulation of our guns, another sovereignty-grabbing U.N. treaty, a pet project of our secretary of state, is still being pushed to declare the oceans the common heritage of mankind. In the pre-dawn hours last Saturday, the U.S. Senate approved by 53-46 a measure "to uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty." But a seemingly harmless cousin, the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), remains on the table, with its champion, former Sen. John Kerry, now our secretary of state. Kerry gave a speech...

    In an address to the United Nations General Assembly today, President Barack Obama dedicated several long passages to discussing and condemning what the New York Times has described as a 14-minute "amateurish video" that a 55-year-old Southern California man posted on YouTube in June. Obama also told the United Nations that with modern technology efforts to control the flow of information have become “obsolete.” The Obama administration had originally suggested that the video in question—which the New York Times said was a trailer for a movie entitled “The Innocence of Muslims”—may have been responsible for inspiring a mob to attack...

    So far, during the presidency of Barack Obama, the price of a gallon of gasoline has jumped 83 percent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. (AP Photo) During the same period, the price of ground beef has gone up 24 percent and price of bacon has gone up 22 percent. When Obama entered the White House in January 2009, the city average price for one gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was $1.79, according to the BLS. (The figures are in nominal dollars: not adjusted for inflation.) Five months later in June, unleaded gasoline was $2.26 per gallon,...

    WASHINGTON -- President Obama is barnstorming the heartland to boost US jobs in a taxpayer-financed luxury bus the government had custom built -- in Canada, The Post has learned. The $1.1 million vehicle, one of two that Quebec-based Prevost sold the government, has been tricked out by the Secret Service with state-of-the-art security features and creature comforts. It's a VIP H3-45 model, the company's top of the line, and is used by major traveling rock bands. "That's the more luxurious model," Christine Garant of Prevost told The Post.

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry's (R) suggestion Monday in Iowa that it would be "treasonous" for the Federal Reserve to engage in more quantitative easing turned heads and raised questions about the limits to Perry's folksiness on the campaign trail. Perry suggested yesterday on the campaign trail that Ben Bernanke, the Fed chairman, would find himself in a "pretty ugly" situation in Texas if he were to authorize another round of quantitative easing, a method of pumping more money into the economy by essentially creating more money. “If this guy prints more money between now and the election,” Perry said at...

    ** Did Perry go too far? A day after appearing to outshine Michele Bachmann on her home turf in Waterloo, albeit with some tough rhetoric aimed at President Obama, Rick Perry might have gone a bit too far in criticizing Obama and even the Federal Reserve while campaigning in Iowa yesterday. For Texans, this is typical Perry. But for Americans who do not know him, it's eyebrow-raising rhetoric. In fact, he sounded more like Trump or Gingrich. "I think the greatest threat to our country right now is this president trying to spend his way out of this debt," Perry...

Perry was asked to comment on “the Fed,” and while he said he didn’t really want to take on the Fed question right now, he did have some blunt comments about the rumored possibility of the Federal Reserve printing a lot more money between now and November 2012 to make the economy appear better than it really is.

    American Thinker ^ | 2-13-11 | Jack Kerwick
    Among pundits on the right, there has been disagreement for quite some time over the fundamental motives informing President Obama's agenda. Essentially two schools of thought on the matter have emerged. One school insists that while the president's policy prescriptions are indeed ultimately destructive, he nevertheless genuinely believes that their implementation is what's best for the country. This is the position taken by the likes of, say, Bill O'Reilly and nationally syndicated radio talk show host Michael Medved. Members of the other school are convinced that Obama is resolved to weaken America. Only a determination on his part to diminish...

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration plans to announce on Thursday that it will scrap former President George W. Bush’s planned missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic and instead deploy a reconfigured system aimed more at intercepting shorter-range Iranian missiles, according to people familiar with the plans. President Obama decided not to deploy a sophisticated radar system in the Czech Republic or 10 ground-based interceptors in Poland, as Mr. Bush had planned. Instead, the new system his administration is developing would deploy smaller SM-3 missiles, at first aboard ships and later probably either in southern Europe or Turkey,...

The New York Times reports one French politician accused the U.S. of "rifling through our private bank accounts," and an Italian lawmaker compared the case to alleged CIA kidnappings of terror suspects, saying it has the same objective, "to extort information."

After flunking as president, Jimmy Carter has now become an unalloyed embarassment. As president Carter almost managed to drive the US economy off the road, with the highest combined inflation and unemployment rate in a half century. Even worse, it was Carter who brought Ayatollah Khomeini to power, by refusing...

Even by the admittedly low standards of the Karl Rove era, the amount of slime that has been dumped on Sheehan has been disgusting. "Wacko." "Crackpot." "In bed with the radical left." "Traitor." "Communist." "Self-righteous ignoramus." "Hateful." "Un-American." "Unhinged." And these are some of the milder epithets directed at her (see FreeRepublic.com and some of the other right-wing hate blogs for the truly vile characterizations). But it's the...

    Spurred on by the fact that the US mainstream media allows and even encourages the Democrats to be as outrageous as possible (after all---it’s the MSM’s Party too!), Senator Dick Durbin has decided to challenge Howard Dean and Ted “the swimmer” Kennedy for buffoon of the year; if not the decade. Not satisfied with only comparing conservatives to the evil ones, Durbin decided to compare member of our US Military to Nazis, Cambodia’s genocidal leader Pol Pot and, of course, the Soviet gulags . In fact, he said as part of his inordinately long and loathsome diatribe: “On one occasion,...

    PHILADELPHIA - One of the military's new wartime challenges is dealing with global media that can instantly spread around the word information that may be false or damaging to U.S. interests, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Wednesday. The United States needs to respond to anti-American messages with greater agility and speed if it is to win the ideological struggle with Islamic extremists, Rumsfeld said in a speech to members of the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia. "We'll need to develop considerably more sophisticated ways of using these new means of communication that are now available to reach the many and...

    "Handel on the Law" radio program | 1/30/05
    I heard this at 6:25 PM yesterday (Saturday), on Handel's show. I'm not sure whether or not it was a replay. A female schoolteacher called in to find out if she had any legal recourse against her female school principal. The teacher, who was upset nearly to the point of tears, related the following: She had invited a veteran to speak to her class, and she had asked the children to write letters to soldiers in Iraq. The principal had approved of all of this. Subsequently, a miserable insect of a parent complained, and the principal then called the teacher...

    The Washington Times ^ | January 27, 2005 | Fran Coombs, Managing Editor
    For many Americans Sen. Ted Kennedy has long been a caricature of liberal elitism, the bloated shell of what once was the youthful beauty of change. He has long lost the ability to shock with his antics, whether it's his questionable private behavior, returning the outreach of the Bush family with cheap shots galore or playing so loose with the facts in his public pronouncements that Jane Fonda looks like an intellectual heavyweight by comparison. But wait, there's fire in the old warhorse yet. In a speech in Washington today, Mr. Kennedy became the first senator to call for the...

    Photos: Northern weapons removed before U.S. arrival Coordinated effort by Saddam's fedayeen to take munitions before allies secured areas Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's fedayeen removed weapons and ammunition from a storage facility in northern Iraq, similar to the al-Qaqaa facility at the center of current controversy, before the U.S. victory and prior to the arrival of the 101st Airborne Division to secure the area, according to photos obtained by WorldNetDaily from an Army intelligence source. Army sources say the removal operations by Saddam's troops at the northern site were coordinated and likely systemic, and could indicate the southern al-Qaqaa...

    Fiedor Report On the News #315 ^ | 9-5-04 | Doug Fiedor
    Last week I suggested that the people Kerry hired to run his campaign were incompetent and/or probably do not want him to win. Most have strong Clinton loyalties. This week, we hear rumbles that heads are about to roll among the Kerry-Edwards campaign staff. Of course, there is no way I would believe Kerry reads my babble -- or would act on the information even if he did. But, I'll reiterate: Kerry couldn't be running a worse campaign if he tried. That's a problem for me, too, actually. Kerry is just too darn easy of a target. Look at it...
