Ted Cruz Sets His Own ‘Red Line In The Sand': Congress Must Approve Any Iran Deal

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Once again, Ted Cruz displays the type of leadership that is sorely lacking in the Oval Office right now. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pennsylvania, have filed an amendment (#1152) to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, which would require affirmative Congressional approval of any Iranian nuclear deal before sanctions relief can occur. “The Constitution makes clear that Congress must approve international agreements like the one President Obama is negotiating with Iran,” said Sen. Cruz. “A nuclear Iran is the single greatest threat to our national security and […]

Raw Video: Taxpayer Goes Off Because Firefighters Have To Eat

Hat/Tip to Anna Olson. It seems that some people will go out of their way to find something complain about. And such is the case with this angry ‘taxpayer’ who evidently doesn’t want the firefighters in his town to eat. Or at the very least, he is upset about WHERE they purchase their groceries. Okay, where do I begin? They have to purchase groceries to stock the station. If they were to try and buy groceries on their time off, I am almost certain there are rules against that, in other words, they’d have to be paid to perform any […]

Modern Day Doctor Frankenstein Plans To Transplant Human Head To Donor Body

  Hat/Tip to Andrew Griffin at The Independent. Nope, it’s not a story from The Onion, in fact the doctor behind this theory can be heard in his TED talk in the video below. Surgeon Sergio Canavero has vowed to go to China is he is banned from doing it everywhere else, arguing that the transplant has ‘political meaning’ — and some on the internet claim it might all be a marketing stunt. The Italian doctor who has claimed that he could transplant a man’s head onto a donor’s body has said that he could do much of the procedure […]

Democratic Presidential Hopeful Courts Hollywood: And It’s A Man Baby!

  Hat/Tip to Tina Daunt at The Hollywood Reporter. Yep, it’s kind of a foregone conclusion that if you’re a Democrat running for POTUS, then you HAVE to woo the Hollywood Libs. *yuck* You can’t be a serious Democratic presidential hopeful these days without a fundraising base in Hollywood, which is why former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is back in town this week to meet with a loyal cadre of industry admirers. O’Malley on Wednesday afternoon made a visit to Sony Studios, where he has longstanding relationships with a number of top executives. On Thursday evening, he’ll attend a high-wattage meet-and-greet […]

Russian Nuclear Energy To Conquer The World, Thanks To Obama And The Clintons

Hat/Tip to Jo Becker and Mike McIntire at The New York Times. It’s bad enough when your elected officials go back on their campaign promises. Hell you might even cut them some slack when they explain how “it’s an election year, and gee whiz, they sure are vulnerable, but don’t worry, after the election, I’ll keep those promises.” Yeahhh, right. But this is something completely different and tenfold worse. This is a sitting President, a sitting Secretary of State and a former President conspiring to not only line their pockets, but also to sell America down the river. The headline on […]

The Environmental Insane Asylum

Guest Post By Alan Caruba Earth Day was declared in 1970 and for the past 45 years we have all been living in the Environmental Insane Asylum, being told over and over again to believe things that are the equivalent of Green hallucinations. Now the entire month of April has been declared Earth Month, but in truth not a day goes by when we are not assailed with the bold-faced lies that comprise environmentalism. Around the globe, the worst part of this is that we are being victimized by people we are told to respect from the President of the […]

Transparency – Schmancparency: The White House Press Corp Is Sick Of Obama

  Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. But he did actually say that…….once…..long ago…. So how’s that “Hope and Change” workin’ out for you? I didn’t think so, and the even the White House Press Corp isn’t buying it, either. For far too long, the “most transparent administration ever” has kept the press at arm’s length, refusing to allow access to President Barack Obama and feeding the media select morsels to appease their appetite. All of that may be coming to an end soon, or at least to a head, now that the White House Correspondent’s Association has grown tired of playing […]

100 Years Of The Income Tax At A Glance

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Courtesy of Americans for Tax Reform comes this visceral evidence of government’s endless growth; in good times and bad it grows. It never shrinks. Like a bad rash. Or a tumor.   Which reminds me of the question that Democrats have refused to answer for well over 100 years: how do we know when the government has done growing? What is their endgame? When will we know their massive government has reached its Utopian completion? Cue the crickets. . . .

Raw Video: Welfare Queen On Steroids, “Who’s Gonna Pay My Rent?!”

Hat/Tip to BuzzPo. Wow, and we thought that there were “Escalade-driving, Bling-wearing, pay for my New York Strip Steak with my Foodstamps” welfare queens here in America. But get a load of this Aussie throwin’ her fit down-under. The welfare system has completely run amok, and not just in America, folks. In fact, there are several other countries, like Great Britain and Australia, whose welfare programs are arguably even worse than our own. In this alarming video, an international welfare queen loses her nut after getting denied benefits. Luckily, there was a reporter just outside the welfare building when the […]

Families Of Sandy Hook Distance Themselves From The Fourth Dixie Chick’s (Tim McGraw’s) Fundraiser

  Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com and AWR Hawkins at Breitbart. Despite the fact that Sandy Hook Promise has among its goals the repeal of all concealed carry laws, and reducing all magazines to 10 rounds or less, Tim (Fourth Dixie Chick) McGraw is still going ahead with his Gun Control Benefit Concert. On MSNBC he said about the concert, “I lead with my heart” in explaining why he was doing the show. In other words, he’s just trying to help and he doesn’t want to be held responsible for what Sandy Hook Promise does with the tens of thousands he will raise […]

Complete Vs Finished

  No dictionary has ever been able to satisfactorily define the difference between “complete” and “finished.” However, during a recent linguistic conference, held in London, and attended by some of the best linguists in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese linguist, was the presenter when he was asked to make that very distinction. The question put to him by a colleague in the audience was this: “Some say there is no difference between complete and finished. Please explain the difference in a way that is easy to understand.” Mr. Balgobins response: “When you marry the right woman, you are complete. If you marry the wrong woman, you are finished. And, […]

Ghosts of “Earth Day” Past

  On this, Earth Day 2015, lets take a look back at some quotes from the very first Earth Day, in 1970.  After you’ve read even a few of these quotes, please ask yourself how we can believe anything that these same people, who now call for man-caused global warming, are saying. “We have about five more years at the outside to do something.”• Kenneth Watt, ecologist “It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.”• Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”• […]

Obama Regime Admits To Releasing Known Gang Member Who Went On To Murder 4 Americans

  Hat/Tip to Weasel Zippers. What was it Obama said about his Illegal Executive Amnesty? Oh yeah! He said that his administration was going to deport “Felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mom who’s working hard to provide for her kids.” I’m guessing that this guy must resemble someone’s mom, so they let him go. The Obama administration is admitting it granted executive amnesty protections to a known gang member — one charged with four counts of murder — and is now reviewing prior approvals to double check that other gang members have not also been approved […]

Ted Cruz:The New York Times Doesn’t Have A Clue About The Meaning Of The Second Amendment

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. It looks like the New York Times is having trouble understanding what “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” really means.   The New York Times Doesn’t Have A Clue About The Meaning Of The Second Amendment By Senator Ted Cruz (R, TX) On Friday, the New York Times stated, in a blaring headline, that my support for Second Amendment rights is “strange.” In particular, the writer took issue with my statement that “”the Second Amendment to the Constitution isn’t for just protecting hunting rights, and it’s not only […]

David Axelrod ‘Suddenly’ Becomes A Fan Of The Fourth Dixie Chick…

  Hat/Tip to Rick Wells at ConstitutionRising.com. Obama’s former adviser and campaign ‘guru’ for both the 2008 and the 2012 elections has been making the rounds as of late hawking his new book. Well evidently sales are lagging because Axelrod has decided to interject himself into the Tim McGraw anti-2nd Amendment benefit debacle. David Axelrod played a key role in orchestrating our current failed national experiment with Marxism, having been a senior adviser to the current occupant of the White House and integral component of his successful taking of the White House. He’s now operating as the director of the […]

Declassified Material PROVES Obama Lied About Iran’s Nuclear Programs

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and Sean Hannity. Obama lied????!!!! NO! Say it ain’t so!!! (okay, now that I got that out of my system, let’s look at how we know he lied) President Obama lied to the American people about the true nature of Iran’s nuclear program, according to declassified material. Add this to a litany of lies told by our president. Declassified material reported on by Bloomberg confirms the following: “The Barack Obama administration has estimated for years that Iran was at most three months away from enriching enough nuclear fuel for an atomic bomb … […]

Muslim Tribute Band

  Went to see a Muslim tribute band last night at a Mosque. They were called “Bomb Jovi”. Brilliant songs like “Losing my head over you,” “Rocket Launcher Man,” “You’re 6, You’re beautiful, and you’re mine.” Their last song “Living on a Prayer Mat” almost brought the house down. Then this Muslim guy started bragging about how he had the entire Koran on DVD.  I was interested so I asked him, “Can you burn me a copy?” Well that was when the trouble started . . .those pricks have no sense of humor!     . . .

Jon Corzine Is Starting A New Hedge Fund! What Could Go Wrong?

      Is there a sucker born every minute? You tell me. Former governor and U.S. Senator John Corzine may soon add another title to his resume — hedge fund owner. According to the Wall Street Journal, the fund would likely be launched with Corzine’s own personal wealth, along with contributions from a handful of outside investors. You remenber Jon Corzine, right? He’s the financial genius who took over MF Global, ran it into the ground, vaporized more than a billion dollars of his clients’ money, and then tried to weasel his way out of any responsibility for the […]
