The Emirates and Egypt Attack Islamist Forces in Libya _ A Positive Step?

It was about the time that President Obama announced his red line in the sands of Syria that Asylum Watch did a piece promoting the idea that America should stop fighting the proxy wars in the Middle East at the behest of its “partners” in the region; i.e., Saudi Arabia, the Arab Emirates, the Gulf State, and etc. The argument was that the United States had been providing arms, aircraft, and training to the militaries of its “partners for decades and it was high time they took on the responsibility of resolving regional issues themselves. In other words, we should […]

Open Floodgates on Border Push Deportations to a 3 Year Wait

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Thanks To Illegals Flooding The Border, Record High 375,000 Pending Immigration Cases, Minimum 3-Year Delay… President Obama has created a mess that will take years to unravel with his public invitation to illegal alien children. Meaning once they get in the U.S. it will take a minimum of 3 years to get rid of them, most skip their hearings so the number who will actually be deported is miniscule. Via Washington Examiner: Two top federal judges Wednesday said the nation’s immigration courts are in chaos, with the backlog of cases at an historic high of 375,000 for […]

China Hard at Work on Super Sonic Submarine

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. It may sound like science fiction or something you’d see on the SyFy Channel, but China is working on just this very thing. The “air bubble” theory that would allow a submarine to move through the ocean at supersonic speed could be closer to reality through the work of Chinese scientists.Called “supercavitating,” the theory is being developed into new technology by scientists at the Harbin Institute of Technology’s Complex Flow and Heat Transfer Lab, according to the South China Morning Post, and it could allow a submarine to reach supersonic speed underwater.The “air bubble” technology would allow a submarine […]

Louisiana Gov. Jindal To Reportedly Sue Federal Government Over Common Core

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. WeaselZippers has been covering this for some time now. And it looks now, as if the best way to defeat Common Core is in the courts. Via FOX News Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal reportedly will file a lawsuit against the Obama administration in federal court Wednesday, claiming that the Department of Education has illegally manipulated grant money and regulations to force states to adopt the controversial Common Core standards. A draft copy of the lawsuit was provided to The Associated Press by the governor’s office. Jindal planned to file it Wednesday in the federal court based in […]

#BringBackOurSnacks: Junk Food Fight – Students Tee Off on Michelle Obama

Hat/Tip to Vocativ. The First Rule of Progressivism, Do What I Say, Not What I Do It’s that time of year again, back to school, back to homework and trying out for band and chorus and the baseball team and the cheerleading squad – AND school lunches. This year though, it’s a little different. Our kids aren’t happy with the dogma that’s being forced down their throats from the First Lady, Michelle Obama. Especially given the fact that she shoves all manner of unhealthy food down her own throat… Note to the first lady: The kids want their Funyuns back. […]

Uncontrolled Immigration: Is It Selfish Not To Want To Commit Suicide?

  President Obama wants amnesty for illegal immigrants and he is threatening to use Executive Orders to make it happen if Congress doesn’t act. Democrats want amnesty and so do many Republicans and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. It’s only those heartless conservatives that want to throw the illegals out. Bloomberg News believes that trying to control the border is “Borderline Crazy”. Even Zero Hedge has a long article in which the author believes he has debunked all the reasons conservatives have to be against amnesty. The truth is, however, that immigrants, both legal and illegal, are replacing Americans in the workforce at […]

New York Government Tries To Force Christian Farmers To Host Same-Sex Marriage

  We have covered this issue before on Political Realities. Our government seems insistent on forcing the homosexual agenda down our throats at a rapid pace. We have seen this happen, time after time. Homosexual couples want to get married. They then proceed to accost Christian business owners, attempting to force them to participate in their perverted version of marriage, providing services to a wedding they can not agree with, in good conscience. We are told that this is not really happening, but OK Politechs has a list of several times this has happened. We can now add one more instance of […]

Honey, I Shrunk The Presidency

  You know a leftie like Obama is in hot water when sycophants like Tingles Matthews,Maureen Dowdy, and the editorial lackeys at the New York Times begin to carp.  Of course, that posse of progressive punditry is not really as exercised over Barry’s inane policies (or lack thereof) as they are over the excessive amount of time he’s spent bogeying the back nine when he could have been back in the Oval Office with his brat pack of latter-day Bolsheviks devising more ways to screw up the country and the world.      For a silver-plated narcissist like Obama, the day-to-day grind of […]

Obama Blames America for Rise of ISIS

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers & Breitbart. Obama Blames America For Rise Of ISIS, Says U.S. “Feeding Extremism” By Occupying Countries… Good ‘Ole Barry is still blaming and apologizing for America. How in the world an America-hating person such as himself found his way into the White House is a question for the ages. Via Breitbart: Monday at the American Legion’s 96th National Convention, President Barack Obama said the answer for ISIS’s “evolving terrorist threat” is not for America to “occupy” countries and end up “feeding extremism.” [...] “The answer is not to send in large scale military deployments that over stretch our military, […]

IRS DOES Have Lois Lerner’s emails, Says Too “Onerous” to Search For Them

  The IRS Does Have Copies of Lois Lerner’s emails, but It’s “Too Onerous” To Search Them? Remember when the Obama Administration said they lost Lois Lerner’s emails? Yeah, that was a lie. Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search. The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this […]

Eric “The Red” Holder Doing His Part To Redistribute Wealth

The Department of (In)Justice under the leadership of Eric Holder has been busy this year suing and obtaining mega-settlements from the Wall Street banks for their roles in subprime mortgage-backed bubble the broke in 2008. The latest case against Bank of America. The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has the story: “Bank of America failed to make accurate and complete disclosure to investors and its illegal conduct kept investors in the dark,” declared a government official in a Department of Justice press release announcing yesterday’s record settlement in which Bank of America agreed to fork over $16.65 billion to settle charges it […]

Obamacare Now Pays for Gender Reassignment

Hat/Tip to Breitbart. I don’t need gender reassignment, but I do have this bunyon… Transgender Americans seeking gender reassignment surgeries are finding relief through Obamacare, The Daily Beast reported on Monday. Federal laws banning health insurance discrimination against transgender people, combined with Obamacare’s ban on denying coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, have paved a path for transgender patients who wish to make the transition from one gender to another.  “The federal anti-discrimination regulations have yet to be written, but California insurance regulators have said that companies must treat transgender patients the same as other patients,” reports The Daily Beast. […]

Obama Stands Alone: Even His Cheerleaders in the Media are Baffled by his Deepening Isolation

Hat/Tip to FoxNews. Obama seems to have been retreating more and more from the everyday responsibilities of being the President of the United States. He gives an obviously forced speech about the beheading of American Journalist, James Foley, and not even 10 minutes later, he is seen ‘fist-bumping’ on the golf course, yucking it up and having a good ‘ole time. This brings to mind the lyrics from an old country song by the Statler Brothers: “Counting flowers on the wall, that don’t bother me at all Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty one Smoking cigarettes and […]

Obama Admin No Show at Memorial Mass For James Foley, But Sent Three WH Aides To Michael Brown Funeral…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. He called Sandra Fluke, but never bothered contacting the families of the agents killed by Fast & Furious… For obvious reasons. Via CNS News: President Barack Obama sent no White House representative to the memorial Mass held yesterday in Rochester, New Hampshire, for James Foley, the American journalist beheaded by the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists. President Obama, however, did send three White House aides to Monday’s funeral for Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African American fatally shot in an encounter with a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo. The memorial mass for James Foley […]

NJ Archbishop Myers Warns of Theological Problems With ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Finding a cure for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) is an admirable goal. And many well-intentioned American Catholics have taken the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness of ALS. But the cure cannot come at the expense of other innocent life. The ALS Association, recipient of donations associated with the Ice Bucket Challenge, uses embryonic stem cells in their research. And now, Newark Archbishop John J. Myers is speaking up to warn us of the moral conflict associated with sacrificing one life to save another. The Newark Archdiocese has told North Jersey pastors and Catholic school officials that holding Ice Bucket […]

Obama Admin Defies SCOTUS, New HHS Mandates are a Distinction Without a Difference

New HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell, late of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s population control efforts, has again “revised” Obamacare’s anti-Catholic abortifascient and and birth control mandate. But her new regulations still firmly place the burden of providing life-destroying drugs and procedures on the employer. Meet the new form, it’s functionally equivalent to the old form. The new arrangement as a more complicated accounting gimmick, no different in effect than its predecessors. Arina Grossu, Director for the Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council, said the amendment “is simply another clerical layer because the employer still remains the […]

Liberals Focus On Conservative Money, Ignore George Soros

This is not something new. Liberals are fond of pointing out everything they perceive conservatives are doing wrong, but conveniently ignore the “sins” that are glaringly apparent in their own backyard. This is especially true since the Citizens United decision was handed down by the Supreme Court. It chaps liberal skins all the way from Washington, down to the state and local level. They can’t stand it because they don’t have access to the information that would tell them who is spending how much in each election cycle. Now, these liberals would have us believe that allowing outside groups to […]

Greta Goes “On The Record” About Obama’s Foreign Intelligence Failings

Greta Van Sustern is a career journalist and true to the best sense of the word, she sees things right down the middle. I don’t know what her politics are, and I don’t care because she reports the news the old fashioned way. She calls it like she sees it and never throws a slant on the news, either right or left. She’s posted a video on her youtube page and I thought she raised some great points. In the video she discusses the beheading of the American citizen and Photojournalist, James Foley. She talks about the dangers of ISIS, […]

Dem US Senate Candidate in Montana Mocks Gun Owners, Christianity, The Bible and The Family

Hat/Tip to Awr Hawkins at Breitbart. You would think that to climb the political ladder from being a State Representative to becoming your party’s nominee for United States Senator, one would have to be somewhat politically savvy and remember that once it’s on the internet, it is forever. But evidently Montana State Rep, Amanda Curtis (D-76 Dist) hasn’t picked up on that little tidbit just yet. She has made and posted some 90 or so videos online where she rants about her topic du jour. In her the case the topic of the day is ALWAYS to bash Conservatism, Conservative […]

ISIS Member Who Beheaded Foley Is British Ex-Rapper: “Jihadi John”

ISIS Enlistee and Ex-Rapper “Jihadi John” who beheaded American Journalist, Jame Foley Hat/Tip to Newsmax. The barbaric animal that was seen in a video posted on Youtube, beheading American Photojournalist, James Foley has been identified by British Intelligence. A 23-year-old British former rapper was identified on Saturday by British security officials as the man suspected of beheading American journalist James Foley, according to news reports.  Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, who is said to be known by Islamic State members as “Jihadi John” because of his British accent, was identified by unnamed British intelligence sources as the masked terrorist standing by Foley […]
