Code Pink Outraged that the U.S. is Bombing ISIS…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Looks like the nut patrol is out in force again. It only took them, what? Six years to get around to protesting Obama? Maybe we should drop the Pinkos into the Islamic State’s “Caliphate” so they can see first hand how non-Muslim women are treated. Code Pink protesting during today’s’ Senate hearing on ISIS.

Another Obamacare Success Story: Businesses Cutting Jobs Ahead of the Employer Mandate

. On the plus side, you’ll have (allegedly) cheap health insurance, and more time to play golf. Because, thanks to Obamacare, your job just went poof! Businesses are cutting jobs due to ObamaCare, according to surveys by several regional Federal Reserve Banks. Health economist John Goodman noted that “three Federal Reserve Banks in Philadelphia, New York and Atlanta have surveyed the folks in their area and roughly one fifth of the employers are saying they cut back on employment.” “Roughly one fifth are saying they’re moving from full time to part time,” Goodman added. “More than one in ten are […]

Black Oakland Firefighter Accuses White Cop of Racism: Cop’s Body Camera Proves Claim False

Hat/Tip to Jason DeWitt at Top Right News. With the shootings in Ferguson, MO and Sanford, FL, racial tensions are elevated, particularly when an incident involves a black subject and a white police officer. Recently in Oakland, CA a black firefighter was walking home with his two sons after an Oakland Raiders game. They walked past the fire station where he worked and noticed an open door. While he was investigating it, police arrived due to a previous call about a break in at that fire station. What transpires next is a classic case of someone getting their hand caught […]

Pic of the Day: Six Years Too Late

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Since Obama burst onto the national political scene, his detractors have tried to paint a rather unflattering picture of him. The McCain campaign took its cue from Hillary’s primary campaign and made efforts to link Obama with Bill Ayers, who was the radical domestic terrorist and co-founder of the violent domestic terror group, the Weather Underground. Asked directly about Ayers, Obama famously lied by saying he was “just a guy in the neighborhood,” and that they’d served on a board together. Wrong. This picture has been making the rounds on Twitter today. It is from a Nov. […]

Nut Case Of The Week Award

Last Sunday’s “Nut Case Of The Week Award” was a bit of a hit so Asylum Watch will make a regular feature as long as interest holds. You, dear reader, are encouraged to  offer your own suggestions. If you choose to do so, please provide a link to your source so we all can enjoy the nutty details. Your humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in will present his short list of candidates and at the end I’ll present “My Choice” for this week’s winner. If a one of your suggestions convinces me that “Your Choice” […]

Obama Utilizes Law to Fight ISIS That He Attacked Bush for Using

Hat/Tip to Andrea Billups at Newsmax. He was against it before he was for it… President Barack Obama first criticized a law passed under George W. Bush that authorized the use of military force without congressional approval, seeking its repeal. But now, the president is using it to his advantage, the Washington Times reports, as he goes after the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists with an assault of airstrikes. Bush’s Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) statute was first implemented in 2001 in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But Obama, at least until a year ago, didn’t like […]

U.S. Has Highest Corporate Tax Rate in the Industrialized World

The U.S. Has the Highest Corporate Income Tax Rate in the Industrialized World The next time some Obamabot tries to tell you American corporations aren’t paying their “fair share” in taxes, show them this chart. See that bottom red line? The one that says “United States?” Yeah, Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, and pretty much all Democrats believe a corporate tax rate of 39.1% is not high enough. Sane people might disagree. Any day now the White House and Sen. Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.) will attempt to raise taxes on business, while making the U.S. tax code even more […]

The Left Hates Teenagers

Common sense tells us that if something becomes more expensive, less of it is consumed. And, if that something happens to minimum wage workers, the same is true. A few days after Labor Day American Thinker ran a post titled Fast food strikers: meet your replacement robot. The article reported on how the far left SEIU had organized protests for raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour in several cities across America. Most of the protests took place near fast food restaurants. Many of the protestors were arrested for blocking traffic. The author  believes that these protests by striking […]

Democrats Now Hold Majority of Appellate Court Seats

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Quietly, almost as if he applied his inane ‘leading from behind’ strategy to filling the courts, President Obama has begun tipping the scales of justice over towards the left. President Barack Obama has been quietly reversing the federal appellate courts’ balances over the past six years, with Democratic appointees now holding the majority of seats on nine of the country’s 13 United States Courts of Appeals. It’s a little-noticed shift with far-reaching consequences. “With all the gridlock, it is forgotten that one of the most profound changes this Congress made was filling the bench,” […]

Shaneen Allen vs. Ray Rice – You Be The Judge

Shaneen Allen is not a new name on Political Realities. I have written twice about her plight after she accidentally went afoul of New Jersey’s antiquated gun laws. You can read those posts here and here. Suffice it to say, this young mother of two young boys from Philadelphia never envisioned being thrown in jail for bringing a gun legally purchased in Pennsylvania into New Jersey. As much as that may be, that is what she is facing. It seems the Garden State doesn’t abide by anyone bringing a gun into their state that isn’t approved and they are throwing […]

Defence of Fort M’Henry: The Story of our National Anthem

Today, on the 200th Anniversary of the writing of our National Anthem, I thought it would be interesting to learn about the night Francis Scott Key penned it. ~~~~~ Francis Scott Key was a lawyer from wealthy Maryland family which owned an estate called Terra Rubra. He was born in August of 1779, and at the age of 10, Key was sent to grammar school in Annapolis. He graduated at 17 and began studying law there, working in his uncle’s law firm. By 1805, he had a thriving law practice of his own in Georgetown. He eventually appeared before the […]

Experts: Beheadings Driving Jihadi Recruitment to ISIS

Hat/Tip to Todd Beamon at Newsmax. Thanks to President Obama’s ‘leading from behind’ nonsense, ISIS is more empowered than ever to continue their reign of terror, unafraid of ANY response from America. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria’s reported execution of British aid worker David Haines is likely only the latest in what promises to be an escalating, serialized slaying of innocent people to prove its terrorist credentials and recruit more members, national security experts told Newsmax. “They are the ones. It is not al-Qaida,” former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra said. “They are trying to recruit more […]

Defending Yourself IDF Style

  Hat/Tip to Leon Leonard The Israeli Defense Forces are responsible for defending their homeland from surrounding Arab states 650 times the size of Israel. They can ill afford to be unprepared for self defense, and this level of readiness extends from the highest sophistication of their Iron Dome Missile Defense down to basic self defense. Watch this video and be prepared to be amazed at this 20 year old woman as she instructs the IDF in self defense. Post by The Jewish Standard.

5,000 Covert ‘Boots on Ground’ in Syria by Year’s End

Former CIA Director, Gen. Michael Hayden Hat/Tip to Greg Richter at Newsmax. Even though we’re not going to put boots on the ground in Syria, we’re, uh, well – we’re gonna have boots on the ground in Syria. Yeah, the most transparent administration on earth strikes again… Despite pledges from the White House that no American ground troops will be sent to fight the Islamic State (ISIS), Gen. Michael Hayden, former head of the CIA and NSA, thinks that up to 5,000 Americans will be on the ground by the end of the year. “It might be through covert action […]

Manhattan Infidel: My Exclusive Interview with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand

Today at Manhattan Infidel I am pleased to have an exclusive interview with New York’s junior Senator,  the lovely Kirsten Gillibrand. MI: Good afternoon Senator Gillibrand. KG: You called me lovely?  You called me lovely?  I am not your girl toy! MI: Um, sorry. KG: Would you call Chuck Schumer lovely? MI: Well no.  He’s quite homely. KG: Precisely.  I am so sick of you non-Democratic men and your non-Democratic double standards of sexism. MI: Okay, okay.  Let’s start the interview.  In your new book you talk about a senator who called your porky.  Which senator was this? KG: I don’t remember.  I don’t remember his name. […]

The return of Ten Buck Friday, support Joni Ernst for U.S. Senate

Week Two of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek Out new life for the Senate, to Boldly Go where our nation has been before! Once again focusing on the Senate races (Republicans need just six seats to oust the Dimbulb from Searchlight, Harry Reid as majority leader), is it worth ten bucks a week (30 pkgs. of Ramen?) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible leadership again? With that in mind, this week we look to the open Senate seat in IA. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Joni Ernst? Real Clear Politics has Ernst up […]

President Bush Predicted What Is Happening In Iraq

  This post is not to debate the eight years George W. Bush served as President of the United States. I agreed with much of what he tried to do, but also had my disagreements with his policies. Having said that, I have always admired the man as someone who holds the distinction of being President during a terrible time in our history. Very few Presidents have had to deal with the issues he had to face while in office. Given the chance to talk at length with any public figure, past or present, I would choose President Bush, hands […]

DHS: Barack Obama can not be legally employed in the U.S.

It’s September 11 again. As we remember those that perished at the hands of Islamic terrorist in 2001, as well as their families and loved ones, we must also remember those that died in Benghazi; again at the hands of Islamic terrorist. September 11th has truly become another day of “infamy” for Americans. I can’t help but wonder if that self-centered egomaniac we have as our President will think about anything other than himself today. We, or rather most of us, have come to learn that for Barack Obama to think about anyone other than himself would be totally out […]

Muslim Father Shoots And Kills Seven Year Old Daughter After Custody Battle With Ex-Wife Who Rejected Islam

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and The Daily Mail. Once again, the religion of “peace” strikes again. Sickening, but before I get a bunch of comments saying I shouldn’t connect the acts of a lunatic to a religion, I say this. The man was angry because his wife rejected him and his ‘religion.’ And just how many stories are there of men killing their children because their wives rejected Christianity? Just horrendous… Via Daily Mail: This is the first picture of a father who shot and fatally wounded his seven-year-old daughter amid a bitter custody battle with estranged wife. Yasser Alromisse, 46, […]
