  • The case against “smart” bombs and drones in the war on terror.

    The case against “smart” bombs and drones in the war on terror. Every time we are shown a grainy picture of some Toyota or individual building being hit by a smart bomb, Tomahawk missile, or Hellfire from a drone we feel a little pride in our technological superiority and the satisfaction that we have taken the fight to the terrorists and killed one, two, or three of them. In short, we feel like we have accomplished something. Let me tell you what’s going on in the surviving terrorists’ tents that night. They are nervously celebrating the martyrdom of a few...

    How do we win the DHS legislation? Simple. Every one of us and every one of our friends need to send a FAX or phone call to Mitch McConnell : Phone: (202) 224-2541 Fax: (202) 224-2499 Your Call or Fax should read something like this: Dear Majority Leader: You can pass a clean DHS bill, prohibiting the Obama adminsitstraion from spending money on his illegal executive order by using the Reid Rule to bypass the filibuster. I know you wanted to preserve tradition of the Senate filibuster rule, but the Democrats didn't care about tradition, only power, and they did...

    Eliminate the current Rhino power group as GOP advisors and select a super leadership group for our next President in favor of a large power group of business leaders including the current candidates. Every one of the current candidates can add something to the next Presidency in terms of what has to be done to overturn the damage to our country by Obama. We need powerful, patriotic leadership to get rid of his damage. American patriotic leadership and powerful business leaders should all contribute to this effort.
  • Obama's "Free" Nuclear Weapon Gift to Iran : Can the U.S. Senate simply NOT RATIFY this Treaty ?

    . 2015-02-28 So the Obama Whitehouse and State Department are supposedly negotiating an agreement with Iran that allegedly gives Iran tacit U.S. approval to design, test and field a nuclear arsenal. Who knows what other gifts-concessions Obama (the stealth Islamic iman) will attempt to give Iran via this agreement. My question is: Doesn't the Constitution require that this agreement (treaty) be voted on and ratified (approved) by the U.S. Senate ? If so, then it's politically simple work for the U.S. Senate to just say "hell no" to Emperor Obama. Is this analysis correct ? Comments are invited. .

    Wow - lots of confusion about what's going on today. The House just put a great wedge between Obama and congressional Democrats, and so many of you don't see it. If Democrats don't go along with the house, they give up grants that have already been appropriated for their home districts - the 3 week CR, by law, forbids any grant money from being granted, and the clock is running. If it doesn't get used this year, it's lost. The Constitution is working as it should - congress is not allowing money for DHS, other than emergency opperations. The RATs...

  • Why the Globalist Wants Assad of Syria Gone [Vanity]

    02/25/2015 11:31:16 AM PST · by Enlightened1 · 18 replies
    The reason Assad has been vilified is because Qatar wants a natural gas pipeline to run through the Arabian peninsula, through Jordan, through SYRIA, to Turkey. From Turkey, it can connect with existing pipelines to Europe, in order to supply Europe with natural gas. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-05-16/mystery-sponsor-weapons-and-money-syrian-rebels-revealed This proposed pipeline would threaten Russia economically, as Russia currently supplies Europe with natural gas. Syria and Russia are allies. Thus, Assad said "No" to the proposed Qatar-Turkey pipeline that would run through Syria. Next thing you know, there's an "uprising" in Syria, and Assad is public enemy number one. And when it became clear...

    Just wondering, because there are no more PC-compliant creatures than Hollywood leftists. Modern PC culture dictates that only bigots and homophobes (and lezzophobes?) support the idea of male-only and female-only public rest rooms. So how come Hollywood is allowed to have "Best Actor" and "Best Actress" Oscar categories? And "Best Supporting Actor" and "Best Supporting Actress"? In the interest of fairness and social justice, shouldn't there be only one "Best Performer" Oscar? Or even fairer, shouldn't there be 58 different best performer awards (or 116 if you include the "supporting" categories)? Shouldn't there be a "Best Supporting Gender Non-conforming" category,...

    Executive orders are numbered; memoranda are not. Memoranda are always published in the Federal Register after proclamations and executive orders.

Memoranda have no such requirement.http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/12/16/obama-presidential-memoranda-executive-orders/20191805/

    I need to mention a fact that many freepers will find painful and upsetting. In the 20th Century, Country Club Republicans had greater influence in selecting Republican nominees for President, than grassroots Republicans. There are only 2 notable exceptions when the establishment candidate did not win - 1964 and 1980. In 1964, the Republican establishment was deeply divided. Three Republican candidates from extremely wealthy, Old Money, WASP families were on the ballot. They were Governor Nelson Rockefeller from New York, Governor William Scranton from Pennsylvania, and former Senator Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. from Massachusetts. Lodge did not formally enter the...

I don't know what the spin from Wallace will be or from any discussion that will follow, but I did receive emails this week from a Roy Moore supporter. Considering the way the media spins things in a negative way towards those who take a stand against gay marriage, I think it appropriate to share what was being said by Justice Moore supporters. I frankly don't take a position on gay marriage other than it is part...

Britain had a total population of 64 million in 2013. This means that only 1.25 percent of the British population are church-going Christians. The future of America seems to be going in Britain's direction. I wanted to add an update to Lord Carey's observations. A lot of people think the Third World is the future of Christianity.

Commercial planes are not designed to ascend so quickly, it may have been climbing at a rate twice as fast as it could and should.

But research shows that the Pipeline would only create mostly temporary jobs — around 3,000 jobs per month for about 12 to 18 months. And, after the Pipeline is completed, only around 35 to 50 permanent jobs will remain. As far as jobs bills go, that’s pretty anemic. Instead, our congressmen could create millions of good-paying, long-lasting American jobs (that can’t be outsourced)...
