As Obama Moves To Cross The Rubicon, Ted Cruz Presents The Wisdom Of Cicero

Why do I love Ted Cruz? This. This is why. Today on the Senate floor he spoke the words of the great Marcus Tullius Cicero… When, President Obama, do you mean to cease abusing our patience? How long is that madness of yours still to mock us? When is there to be an end to that unbridled audacity of yours, swaggering about as it does now? Do not the nightly guards placed on the border—do not the watches posted throughout the city—does not the alarm of the people, and the union of all good men and women—does not the precaution […]

The Executive Outlaw

 Based on his subversive actions, by definition Barack Obama is indeed making war against America, and it’s high time Congress responded by declaring their own war on a man who became a domestic enemy the day he violated his oath by refusing to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” (Time for Congress to Declare War on Obama) *** “Obama has NO constitutional legal authority whatsoever to alter, circumvent, subvert or otherwise ignore the standing laws of the United States concerning Immigration and Naturalization.” – North American Law Center *** “It is no accident that Obama is […]

Lame Ducks And Sour Grapes

“Nancy Pelosi claimed Thursday she didn’t know who ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber is, after several tapes surfaced showing him gloating about how the law was written to take advantage of the stupidity of the American voter. Problem is, Gruber’s analysis of the law was cited extensively by her office back in 2009. Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, tried to downplay Gruber’s role during a press conference on Thursday. She claimed she doesn’t know who he is, and that he didn’t help write the law. ‘Let’s put him aside,’ she said.” – Fox News “Ye have taken my silver and my […]

The Obama Legacy Will Not Soon Be Forgotten

  Presidents come and go and, generally, are soon all but forgotten by the public at large. One exception was President Lincoln, who is, in my opinion remembered for all the wrong reasons. It was Lincoln and the Civil War that ended the Founder’s dream of a small federal government with the limited powers enumerated in the Constitution. Who would have thought at the start of this 21st century that an unknown community organizer in Chicago by the name of Barack Hussein Obama would quickly rise to State Senator, U.S. Senator, and then to President these United States in nine […]

Technology Is The Most Critical Threat To Civilization

  The title of today’s post was first formated as a question: Is Technology The Greatest Threat To Civilization? Then I thought to myself: “Why be so cowardly? You believe technology is the greatest threat facing mankind’s construct of civilization; so go ahead and make it an emphatic statement.” Rather bold, don’t you think, for a don nadia masquerading as a a self-appointed observer to the asylum we all have to live in? But sometimes, when you believe something strongly enough, you must not fail to make your stand. Although defending my assertion could easily turn into a tome, I will […]

George Soros: An Uber Liberal Warmonger?

  George Soros, the multimillionaire who likes to pretend he is the ultimate “liberal”, is in reality a crony corporatist of the first order. There is only one thing you need to understand about George Soros. If he is agitating for some cause or donating money to some cause, it is because he sees ways to make tonnes of money from the causes. There is not a noble corpuscle in his body. So, I am wondering how the “Koch brothers are bad, Soros is good” hypocrites, otherwise known as America’s liberals, are going to spin the news that their darling […]

Obama: If You Like Your Internet, You Can Keep Your Internet

  Despite the shellacking they took in last week’s elections, the progressive power-grab continues unabated. Obama’s FEC is already debating how to regulate what you say on the internet. Now he’s demanding FCC regulation of what you can see on the internet too. President Obama threw down the gauntlet Monday with cable companies and Internet providers by declaring they shouldn’t be allowed to cut deals with online services like YouTube to move their content faster. It was his most definitive statement to date on so-called “net neutrality,” and escalates a battle that has been simmering for years between industry groups […]

Five Year Old White Girl Killed By Two Black Males While Sitting On Her Grandfather’s Lap: Where’s The Outrage?

Hat/Tip to Wounded American Warrior and Top Conservative News. She was described by her aunt as a “wild child” who always happy, loved life and recently told her aunt that she “loved her more than science”. Butterflies, glitter and the movie Frozen were among her favorite things. Her name was Laylah Peterson, and she was murdered in her home, while sitting upon her grandfather’s lap. Laylah was a little white girl and her two killers are black males. Why do I inject race into this story? Because after all the #Ferguson tweets, Facebook postings and news coverage where, despite all the […]

Crime and Punishment In America’s Police State

  “Let the punishment fit the crime” is a concept of jurisprudence that goes back to biblical times. With the noted exception of Justice Antonin Scalia, most legal scholars argue that the concept is covered  by the Eighth Amendment to the US Constitution: “federal and state criminal laws can’t allow excessive bail or fines, or “cruel and unusual punishment.” Although whether the punishment does indeed fit a given crime is naturally subjective, it is a concept that has been applied throughout America’s history; that is, until Barack Obama became President of these United States. The Obama Doctrine, as demonstrated by through […]

America: She Loves Him Not

“With votes still being counted in more than a dozen congressional districts, Democrats were on track to shed 13 to 16 seats, an outcome that would leave the party with as few as 185 of the chamber’s 435 seats. The last time Democrats had such a small House delegation, Herbert Hoover was president, Charlie Chaplin was making movies, and Alka Seltzer was just hitting the shelves.”– Politico “Shellacked and thumped by an angry electorate, President Obama declared to every American who voted in Tuesday’s elections—and to those who’ve checked out of the political process—”I hear you.”  And then he ignored […]

There Are So Many Great Takeaways From Tuesday’s GOP Landslide

  For 8 years Harry Reid was the ultimate obstructionist, blocking every Republican amendment, refusing to hold votes on legislation passed by the House, and nuking the filibuster to get Obama’s radical judicial nominees confirmed to the DC Court of Appeals. So naturally, after he got his ass kicked Tuesday, he wants to “work together” with Republicans. Hey Harry, in the immortal words of Dick Cheney, “Go fuck yourself.” I hope Mitch McConnell assigns Reid an office in the basement, next to the trash compactor. And then promptly forgets that Dingy Harry even exists. The American people didn’t give the […]

Keep Your Doors And Windows Locked — Obama’s Still Out There

  “By giving Republicans at least a 52-seat majority in the U.S. Senate, and probably its biggest House majority since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president, the nation sent Obama to the sidelines. Not a single piece of legislation will reach his desk for the remainder of his presidency without massive Republican backing. Obama can veto bills, of course, and he surely will. But what he can’t do is shove insane, left-wing nonsense down the nation’s collective throat. That’s over.” – Dan Calabrese “The Dems were the recipients of voter wrath towards the miserably failed presidency of Barack Obama that now […]

Election Day: Two Ruthless Politicians From American History

  With the gridlocked Congress’ approval rating consistently staying in the single digits more than the wind chill at Lambeau Field, it’s only natural for people to look back lovingly at years gone by when politicians supposedly knew how to get things done. Usually these screeds of nostalgia focus more on days when bipartisanship was popular. You know, the days when hard drinking men in smoky backrooms scratched each other’s backs and reached across the aisle and employed various other vaguely sexual metaphors to pass some legislation. But there’s another way to view the bygone era of politicians doing more […]

The War on the American Soldier (And Why We Can’t Afford It)

  We have been at war for a very long time, and the casualties of this war are mounting on a daily basis – and I’m not talking about our operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, or Africa. I’m talking about the current administration’s protracted war on the US soldier and our American veterans. This goes beyond some lazy cup-o-Joe salute to the Marines. While the little mishap might indicate a lack of respect for our armed forces on the president’s part, that pales in comparison to the 22 taking place every day. Twenty-two According to a VA report released in 2012, […]

Quarantining Obama

“White House officials are preemptively spinning a midterm defeat, and they’re using their own fantasies to do it. They’re starting to blame candidates for not supporting President Obama enough.” – Josh Kraushaar “In a land as philosophically and politically divided as our country is, any time 64 percent agree on anything it’s time to take notice. Sixty-four percent of people polled by Politico say America is ‘out of control.’ Given the ever-growing list of crises piling up on us, it’s a wonder that 64 percent isn’t higher.” – Steve Tefft “We are witnessing the total collapse of a bad idea. […]

President Obama: ‘We Don’t Want Stay At Home Moms’

  There are times when politicians finally let the public in on how they feel about the issues facing America. Most of them try to keep their cards close to their chest, simply because the aforementioned public may not be so enamored with them, once they learn how they really feel. Such is the case with President Obama. He likes to go around, declaring how the Republican Party is waging a war on women. He had a lot of help hammering that lie home in 2012 and they managed to convince more than a few women that his opponents wanted […]

6 Reasons We Need To Help Republicans Take The Senate Even Though They Stink

Hat/Tip to John Hawkins at TownHall.com. As Managing Editor of this site, I have a LOT of conversations with folks of all political stripes. I appreciate honest discourse and abhor name calling, straw-man arguments, emotional pleas and pretty much any argument, other than factual ones. I’ve run across a number of folks as of late that believe the best course of action is, well…inaction. Yes, that’s right, doing nothing. For some reason these folks think that since 100% of the GOP candidates aren’t Tea Party candidates, then they have no choice but to sit home on election day, watch America […]

It’s The Economy, Stupid

There are a lot of issues Americans are concerned about. Islamic terrorism and Ebola rank at the top of the spectrum of things we worry about. Or do they? According to a new poll from Fox News, that may not be so much the case. No doubt, we are concerned about the rise of Islamic terrorism and Ebola. We want neither of them on our shores, yet here they are. Most Americans despise ObamaCare, even though it was rammed down our throats and into our pocketbooks. But among all the issues we look at, it seems the one that is […]
