Boston Liberals Love the Downtrodden, Until the Downtrodden Move in Next Door

Boston is the bluest of cities in one of the bluest states. They haven’t voted for a Republican in something like 3,000 years. Arguments over politics hinge on who is more progressive, Che or Elizabeth Warren. Their only gripe about social programs is that government isn’t spending enough money or hasn’t raised taxes sufficiently yet. So it cracks me up to see so many Bostonians turning out against the importation of illegal aliens into Beantown. An anti-illegal immigration rally on Beacon Hill outside the State House on Saturday, July 26 was teeming with protesters. While Bree Sison of CBS Boston […]

National Guard Banned from Vacation Bible School, Allowed to March in Gay Pride Parade

Have you ever attended Vacation Bible School? Around here, we call it VBS and it is the time of the year, usually during summer vacation from school, that children gather at a local, or not so much, school to learn about the Bible and the principles it teaches. In the case of the VBS put on by our church, it is some children’s only opportunity to attend an event that is both educational and uplifting. Not to mention, a lot of fun. During the week, representatives of the local police and fire departments, as well as the local paramedics. It […]

Obama Plans to Completely Stop Enforcing Immigration Laws

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Rep Jeff Sessions: Obama To “Effectively End Immigration Enforcement” Maybe it’s all his newfound “flexibility” that the President is enjoying, or maybe he just doesn’t give a rat’s patooty about the Constitution. Either way, it looks as if Obama is going to give defacto amnesty to all the Illegal Alien Children streaming across our southern border. Via Weekly Standard: The Obama administration is preparing to effectively “nullify” the immigration laws of the United States through an executive action, says one Republican senator. As Time reported Thursday, President Obama appears prepared to provide millions of illegal immigrants living […]

Even Obama has Obama Fatigue…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers.   Obama has low level staffers for the minor problems. Via The Telegraph President Obama has emotionally checked out of his job a couple of years early, it seems. How can one tell? Candidates for president who brazenly assume they are the inevitable victor are sometimes accused of “measuring the drapes” for the White House. Obama, conversely, seems to be prematurely packing his bags in hopes for an early departure. Just last week, for example, the Los Angeles Times reported that “The First Family is believed to be in escrow on a contemporary home in a gated […]

Hamas Mega-Attack Planned Through Gaza Terror Tunnels

Hamas had apparently been preparing a murderous assault on Israeli civilian targets for the coming Jewish New Year Holiday, Rosh Hashanah, which begins on September 24, according anonymous sources in the Israeli security services, as reported today by the Israeli daily Maariv. The Hamas plan consisted of what was to be a surprise attack in which 200 fighters would be dispatched through each of dozens of tunnels dug by Hamas under the border from Gaza to Israel, and seize kibbutzim and other communities while killing and kidnapping Israeli civilians. Israeli soldiers already frustrated a surprise assault by Hamas through one […]

Journey To The Border: Who’s Paying The Freight?

Warner Todd Huston of Publius Forum has a question. It’s a very good question which deserves an answer. His question was derived from this English version of a recent AP article about the how and the who and the costs involved in moving tens of thousands teenagers and children from Central America to the southern border region of the United States. If you want to understand how this extremely well organized human trafficking business works, the AP article is a must read. The investigative reporters learned that those wanting to come to the US are charged anywhere from $2500 to $10,000. […]

Grounded

“Support for Israel is a minority opinion in the Democratic Party.” – William McGurn “For years now it has been clear that Barack Obama is unusually hostile to the state of Israel and unusually sympathetic to or admiring of anti-Semites such as Rashid Khalidi.” – Quin Hillyer Congress, at least that part of it not controlled by America’s domestic enemies the Democrats, is taking steps to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014—sponsored by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.)—seeks to slap U.S. sanctions on the organization’s political center in Egypt […]

U.S. Government Considering Plan To Fly Honduran “Refugees” Straight To America

Just when I think I have heard it all, our government comes along and considers something so foolish that I have to stand corrected. It’s not breaking news that our Southern border has been overran with illegal immigrants, from Mexico and all points South. Many of these illegal immigrants are children and they all make the claim they are fleeing violence and therefore, should be considered to be refugees. The Obama administration is likely to give most of them asylum, in spite of his claims to the contrary. That’s bad enough, but a report I read this morning from Red […]

Obama Dumping Illegal Alien Children, Tells Governors Nothing

Obama just dumped 1504 illegal alien kids in NJ, and won’t tell us where they are The tip of the ICEberg…   New Jersey’s new motto on the Statue of, ahem, Liberty: “Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning for Free Stuff.” Did I say “give?” I meant dump. Because we didn’t ask for 1504 new mouths to feed. Obama just dropped ‘em off, behind our backs. More than 1,500 unaccompanied children who entered the U.S. illegally have been placed with sponsors in New Jersey this year, federal officials announced Thursday. New statistics released by the Department […]

Doomed by Debt

Unfortunately for the romantics out there, it is not love that makes the world go around. It’s money that makes the world go around, right? Well, if you think of money as those units of currency you carry in your wallet or pocket, then no it’s not actual money. Actual money (currency) is in relatively short supply. No, what makes the world go around is money created out of thin air; otherwise known as credit or debt. Think fractional reserve lending. Credit/debt is money that was never generated by the real economic production of a good or service. Credit/debt is, however, […]

White House Fears Impeachment If Obama Unilaterally Grants Amnesty

    Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers & Breitbart. It has to be a violation of his constitutional responsibility, which amnesty and effectively opening the borders most certainly is. As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn’t wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama — but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, […]

Rick Perry reveals that Obama threatened governors at recent meeting: Must See Video

Hat/Tip to CainTV. So we have a meeting with President Obama and some of our nation’s Governors, and in this meeting, the petulant, Narcissist-in-Chief has the gall to threaten them?? Why in the blue hell can’t Obama act this way with Putin? Petulant president. Hardly a surprise: During a recent meeting with the nation’s governors, President Obama made clear his top priority, which is to make sure that the governors don’t go talking out of turn or criticizing his policies in any way. Texas Gov. Rick Perry saw no reason to keep this a secret, and as you can see […]

The Best Friend Hamas Ever Had

“Qatar is Hamas’s biggest and most important financier, a role it plays as well for ISIS, al Nusra, the Muslim Brotherhood and various jihadist groups in Libya.” – Caroline Glick “When it comes to American relations with our Israeli allies and our Islamic-supremacist enemies, you can always rely on Obama to do the wrong thing.” – Andrew C. McCarthy “I’ve got two years left in this presidency, I want to get a whole bunch of stuff done.” – Barack Obama Obama ain’t fooling anyone; at least, not anyone who doesn’t want to be fooled — which is usually the eternally […]

Lunch with Obama, Now a Bargain Basement Discount!

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Dem Donors Offered “Deep Discounts” To Attend Obama Fundraisers, Price For Sit Down Dropped From $25K To Just $5K… That’s an 80% discount, folks! You know it’s getting bad when your own Party has to be wooed just to pony up the bucks. And this is in the ultra-liberal and ultra-wealthy San Fran area. Via SF Gate: President Obama hit the Bay Area for a fast cash-and-grab fundraising drive Wednesday, but there were signs that even in one of the nation’s most reliable Democratic ATMs, donor fatigue is setting in. There was no listed price for tickets […]

CNN Poll: Twice as many Americans were hurt by Obamacare than were helped

I imagine that somewhere in the land of unicorns and rainbows there is someone who was once helped by Obamacare. But here in the Real World, it’s been nothing but a royal pain in the butt. And now, a new poll by those noted right-wingers at CNN confirms what most sane people already know. Obamacare’s overall approval rating remains upside-down by nearly 20 points (40/59), virtually unchanged from its March “rebound.” Democrats’ self-congratulatory convulsions over “eight million new enrollees” failed to move the needle. (Reasons for scare quotes here, here, here, and — new today! — here). Asked whether the […]

Nancy Pelosi about the Border Chaos: Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Yes, this ‘compassionate’ Dem is focusing on how to use the chaos on our southern border, rather than on how to best solve the problem and stop the suffering. What ever happened to, “It’s for the children,” Nancy? Via NRO: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) wants Democrats to “use this crisis” on the border to pass comprehensive immigration legislation — just as immigration hawks fear they’ll do. “The most important thing that we can do to use this crisis as an opportunity is to pass comprehensive immigration reform,” Pelosi told reporters in Texas while discussing […]

Why Are Illegal Immigrants So Special To The TSA?

This is something I really can not comprehend or fathom. Since the terrible attacks on 9-11, Americans have faced increased scrutiny and security when they travel. Focused mainly at airports, Americans have been subjected to everything in between taking off their shoes and having their persons searched in a very intrusive manner. Some have even went through the body scanners that anyone who has traveled loves to hate. The indignities have been great and what many of us would call unAmerican. That’s what makes this story so frustrating. We are all aware of what has been going on at our […]

Looks like the JV team just went Varsity

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. One wonders, is this the “JV Squad” Obama spoke of? In January of this year, President Obama said this: In a wide-ranging interview with the New Yorker, President Barack Obama compared Al-Qaeda-linked militants in Iraq and Syria to junior varsity basketball players, downplaying their threat as small-league. He also shared what he thought were the chances of reaching Middle East peace agreements. “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama told The New Yorker. State Dept. Official: […]

Obama Tells Dem Donors, “You’re Chronicling The Slow Deterioration Of Barack Obama”…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers.   We noticed. Via Daily Caller: President Barack Obama told a group of Democratic fundraisers that they’re “chronicling the slow deterioration of Barack Obama” at a Wednesday event in California. The luncheon, sponsored by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, was hosted by real estate mogul George Marcus at his home in California’s Los Altos Hills. Tickets started at $10,000, with a VIP option available for just $32,400 — the maximum amount an individual can contribute to the DCCC in one year. Keep reading…

NJ Supreme Court orders state legislature to end Spousal Privilege in criminal cases

Our activist state supreme court is at it again. Legislating from the bench. Penning actual legislation, and ordering that it be enacted, forthwith. The New Jersey Supreme Court said Tuesday that the traditional privacy rights reserved for married couples — shielding their intimate conversations from public view — should no longer apply to spouses who are hatching or executing a crime together. In a 7-0 ruling, the justices said it was time to update the state’s law on criminal evidence so prosecutors can use at trial any smoking-gun communications they find between married partners. However, their ruling did not overturn […]

Two American-born IDF Soldiers Killed in Gaza Fighting

Two American-born Israeli soldiers were killed during the first days of Gaza fighting between Israel and Hamas. Very sad.  My thoughts and prayers are with their families. May the loss of life be few during this war or fight in Gaza. Hat/Tip to Fox News: Two American-born soldiers for the Israeli Defense Forces were killed in fighting in the Gaza Strip, their families confirmed Sunday.  Stuart Steinberg confirmed the death of his son Max Steinberg, 24, to The Associated Press on Sunday. Steinberg, whose family lives in Southern California’s San Fernando Valley, was a sharpshooter for the Golani Brigade. He […]

Federal Appeals Court Rules That ObamaCare Subsidies Only Apply to State Exchanges, Obama Administration Promises to Ignore the Decision

It always struck me as funny that when a court ruled for something liberal, like killing babies, or the First Amendment doesn’t mean what it says it means, it’s the gospel truth, etched in granite, and can never again be questioned.  However, if  a ruling goes against them, that’s a different story indeed.  Then, it’s terrible, awful, and require laws to be passed to bypass the court.  Or, they might just ignore it anyway.  The latest example of this comes from the ObamaCare front, where the administration’s efforts to bypass states that did not set up exchanges (or did, and […]

ObamaCare – Fake Applicants Approved For Health Care Subsidies

It’s been a while since I wrote about ObamaCare, but this is worthy of a post. We all know, if we will admit to the knowledge, that ObamaCare is a boondoggle. It is a massive federal program that is poorly designed and even more poorly conceived. It is an attempt to take over the health care system in America, out of the control of the patients and doctors and placing it in the control of the federal bureaucracy. If for no other reason than that, it is a bad law and even worse program. When you consider the ineptitude and […]

Daily Kos Laments that Klingon Disruptors can be “purchased and carried anywhere in Georgia! “

OK, maybe it wasn’t a Klingon Disruptor, but the Kossacks really stepped in it when they decided to run a story about the guns that could be purchased and carried in Georgia.

IRS Announces it Needs Help Destroying Evidence

Oh, my mistake! When I said that the IRS needs help destroying evidence, I meant 3200 hard drives! Amazing how something like that could slip out.
