Obama on Foley Beheading: A Criminal Act, Not Act of War

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Well, it could be worse; Obama could have declared Foley’s beheading as ‘work place violence’… WeaselZippers nailed this one, in their usual, poignant manner: How bad an idea is this? So bad even Obama’s number one media sycophant Chris Matthews is against it. Lets review: Our President doesn’t view the beheading of an American citizen by a rogue, newly formed terrorist nation as an act of war??? Via Fox News: Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that his Justice Department is opening a criminal investigation into the brutal execution by Islamic State militants of American journalist James […]

GAO Report: Obama Violated Federal Law in Bergdahl Swap

Hat/Tip to the Washington Free Beacon. Are Obama’s ‘pen’ and ‘phone’ getting him into trouble? The Obama administration violated federal law when it released five senior Taliban leaders from prison without notifying Congress, as is legally mandated, according to an investigation by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). The GAO concluded in a report issued Thursday that the Obama administration failed to provide proper notification of the Taliban release and illegally used taxpayer funds that were not appropriated to enable the inmate transfer, according to the report. The Pentagon violated federal law in releasing the GIMO Five, without notifying Congress before […]

Obama Dithered Again, Costing James Foley his Life

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers the Washington Free Beacon. Report: U.S. Special Forces Rescue Attempt Of James Foley Failed Because Obama Kept “Dragging His Feet”…   President Obama has crafted his “leading from behind” foreign policy into an art form. However, much like the “art” that depicts a cross in a jar of urine, or the American Flag on the floor, being walked on, it leaves a nasty taste on the pallet. Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer (Ret.) is a CIA-trained former senior intelligence officer who wrote the book Operation Dark Heart about the Special Operations successes in the early stages of the […]

#Ferguson: NAACP says Micheal Brown star witness being guilty of lying to police ‘doesn’t concern’ them

Dorian Johnson, friend of Michael Brown, shown here in 2011, is wanted for theft and filing a false report/lying to the police in Jefferson City, MO Hat/Tip to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Dorian Johnson, friend of Michael Brown, the 18 year old that was shot and killed by Ferguson, MO Police has a bit of a murky past. In 2011, Johnson ran afoul of the law in Jefferson City, MO. Johnson has revealed little about himself. He attended Lincoln University in Jefferson City for two semesters in 2011, but “wound up back here, struggling to find a job,” Bosley said. […]

Gas prices are falling, Do we question the timing…?

If there wasn’t an election in 2 months I might be happy about falling gasoline prices Gas prices are falling. I question the timing. Gasoline prices in New Jersey have dropped this summer and as of today, three stations in Union and Middlesex counties were charging as low as $2.98 for a gallon of unleaded. That marked the first time since February that a station in the state sold gas for less than $3 a gallon, highlighting what oil analysts say is a trend that should continue into Labor Day and beyond. Yup, “beyond,” to Election Day. The $2.99 gas […]

Parents out there, make sure you talk about this with your kids.

Rick Perry Makes EPIC Speech Before Turning Himself In: Must See Video!

Hat/Tip to The Conservative Post & CBSNews. This is what true leadership looks like. Take note Mr. President… Rick Perry had two choices when he was indicted on felony charges. He could either run and hide, or he could confront the Democrats and their trumped up Georgre Soros backed charges like a real Texan. And that’s just what he did. He walked defiantly from the state capital in Austin to the Travis County Courthouse under a barrage of cameras flashes and supporters. He took a mugshot and was fingerprinted. He then gave a short speech to a crowd of supporters […]

ABC News: Obama Knew in Advance of Reporter’s Impending Death by ISIS

Hat/Tip to ABC News. So the Obama administration knew in advance that James Foley was in danger of being murdered; much like they had Intel in advance on Benghazi. In a stunning report by ABC News online, we learned that President Barack Obama and his White House knew that ISIS “recently threatened to kill U.S. journalist James Foley to avenge airstrikes the United States has conducted in Iraq.” A video surfaced on Tuesday showing what appears to be an ISIS terrorist beheading Foley with the stated reason of revenge on Obama, suggesting they will do it again.   President Obama […]

Mike Ditka on Furor over Redskins’ Name: “…so stupid, it’s appalling…”

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Finally, a voice of reason amid a sea of insanity! Former NFL player and coach Mike Ditka has lashed out at “liberals” and “politically correct idiots” who are calling for the Washington Redskins to change the team’s name because it’s a “racial slur” offensive to Native Americans. In an interview with RedskinsHistorian.com, the ESPN analyst made it clear that he plans to continue using the football franchise’s Redskins nickname during the season even though some NFL announcers are considering just calling the team “Washington,” USA Today reported. “What’s all the stink over the Redskin name?” said the […]

#Ferguson: Police Officer was badly beaten by Micheal Brown before shooting

    Hat/Tip to Foxnews. Facts are coming out about the shooting in Ferguson, MO which set off race riots, looting and vandalism in the small Midwestern town. Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department’s top brass told FoxNews.com. “The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. […]

Mister we could use a man like Stephen Decatur again

“Decatur Boarding the Tripolitan  Gunboat” a painting by Dennis Malone Carter  The news out of Iraq gets worse every day. I could blame Barack Obama, but he only did what he promised he’d do. He pulled us out, with predictable consequences for sure, but it’s what a majority of (poorly informed) Americans wanted at the time. And now his late-to-the-party half-hearted airstrikes on ISIS aren’t the actions of a serious wartime president. They’re CWA moves, so he can say “he tried.” No, America, and Western Civilization, have to wait until January 2017, when hopefully we have the good sense to […]

#Ferguson: Has Obama Made it Worse?

I have yet to write about the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, for one simple reason. I have not felt like wading into the mud that seems to be getting thicker every day. Even with Missouri National Guard now helping the Missouri Highway Patrol police the area, Monday night was still dangerous on the streets in Ferguson. Dozens were arrested and two people were shot by the protestors. We do not know how this is going to end up, but I believe I can safely say, it will not be good. Simply put, the situation in Ferguson is […]

Be Very Damn Careful With That Dam!

Yesterday, Fox News reported that the US planned further air strikes against the ISIS forces in northern Iraq, some of which were specifically to help Iraq regain control of Iraq’s largest dam which fell into ISIS hands a month ago. This morning another Fox News story reported that Kurdish forces have reportedly launched a ground offensive to seize control of Iraq’s strategic Mosul dam from Islamic militants. Upon reading the Fox article last night, I was reminded of a piece I’d read several days ago at Zero Hedge on the Mosul dam. This dam is a disaster waiting to happen. The […]

A Second Declaration of Independence

  Hat/Tip to David Shapiro at Breitbart.com.   When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to assume that their president, hostile to the principles that formed the nation and determined to act with malice toward its inhabitants by suppressing their rights and enabling its enemies to prosper in their attempts to destroy it, must be confronted, a rational response for the nation is to encumber itself no more with such a president and reject his authority and the acolytes who carry out his wishes. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men […]

#Ferguson: Valerie Jarrett Revealed as Orchestrating the Crisis

Hat/Tip to DW Ulsterman & Breitbart. It’s long been rumored that Presidential Adviser, Valerie Jarrett is the brains behind the Obama Presidency. Speculation surrounding the amount of influence she sways over Obama abounds, but the New York Times has released a story revealing that Jarrett has been in constant talks with Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, and civil rights leaders, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. According to Ulsterman and Breitbart, via the New York Times: But as Obama returned to the White House on Sunday, Jarrett assured members of the media that he will stay personally engaged with the situation. “He […]

Breaking News: ISIS Beheads American Citizen, Journalist James Foley

In this May 27, 2011 file photo, American journalist James Foley, of Rochester, N.H. ( (AP PHOTO/STEVEN SENNE, FILE)) Hat/Tip to The Wire. ISIS has released a video showing American Journalist, James Foley reading a statement. Foley is kneeling, dressed in orange next to a man standing, dressed in black. After Foley reads his statement, under coercion, the coward, man wearing black clothes then proceeds to behead Mr. Foley while he is alive. Editor’s Note: Conservative Hideout refrains from showing the video, or passing the propaganda Mr. Foley was forced to read. The cowardly ISIS terrorists will not be getting […]

Navy Bans Bibles then Kicks Atheist Group to the Curb – Puts Bibles Back in Hotels

Hat/Tip to Tim Brown at the Freedom Outpost. Those tolerant lefties are at it again. This time, they tried to intimidate the Navy into removing Gideon Bibles from hotel rooms. Atheists from the Freedom from Religion Foundation had complained back in March to the US Navy that the Navy was unconstitutionally showing preference to Christianity. As a result, the Navy sent out a memo in June informing all lodge managers that any religious materials, including Bibles, would be removed from the rooms under “established procedures for the lost-and-found property.” However, upon a review of its policies, the Navy ordered that […]

Gowdy on Benghazi Investigation: “…we are going to do it methodically, professionally.”

Hat/Tip to Conservative Tribune. As we all know, Congressman and former Federal Prosecutor, Trey Gowdy has been appointed Chair of a select committee to investigate the events at Benghazi that led to the deaths of four American citizens, including our Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. But true to his undefeated streak as a prosecutor, he is taking his time and not rushing into anything. After Congress returns from their August recess, Gowdy intends to begin holding hearings with the Benghazi Select Committee, most likely in early September. Gowdy has already promised to subpoena Hillary Clinton and compel her to testify, […]

#Ferguson: Sharpton says Christie bad for attending party, Obama gets a pass for attending Jazz concert…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. As usual, WeaselZippers sums it up nicely: Why does Sharpton think the Governor of New Jersey should cancel his plans because of what’s happening in Missouri? Shouldn’t he be outraged over Obama going to a concert during the riots? Via The Hill: The Rev. Al Sharpton slammed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) for dancing with Jamie Foxx in the Hamptons over the weekend, while protests and police activity in Ferguson, Missouri, escalated. The potential 2016 candidate was attending a fundraiser. Also present and taking his turn on the stage was Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). Sharpton told […]

#Ferguson: Obama sends Holder to Ferguson, Authorizes Yet ANOTHER Autopsy – Why?

Hat/Tip to Townhall.com. I suppose we can be thankful that President Obama didn’t say that if he had a son, he would look like Michael Brown. Instead, he sends his lackey, Attorney General, Eric Holder to Ferguson. And what does Holder do? Why he calls for a THIRD autopsy. Even though it’s being reported as the second autopsy, there have already been two. One by the St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office and a private one ordered by the family, as reported here at CH2.0. Here is the statement released by the Justice Department: “Due to the extraordinary circumstances involved […]
