When Democrat Hero FDR Confiscated American Citizens’ Gold — At The Point Of A Gun

Hat/Tip to Nick Sorrentino at Doug Ross @ Journal. He was instrumental in the Allied victories in WWII, but his economic policies were disastrous. A little tidbit that is all but forgotten is the fact that Roosevelt forced all Americans to turn in their gold, or else. FDR, the man who studied Mussolini, who birthed the current intrusive state, who started the drug war in earnest, who put Japanese Americans into concentration camps, who extended the Depression years longer than it needed to be and thereby contributed to the genesis of the Second World War, who tried to pack the […]

26 States Now Suing To Stop Obama’s Executive Amnesty…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Well, if Boehner and McConnell won’t do anything about it… GOP In Full Retreat? Boehner And McConnell Raise The White Flag On Obama’s Executive Amnesty Tennessee and Nevada join the coalition. Via Townhall: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Monday that both Nevada and Tennessee have joined the Lone Star state’s challenge of President Obama’s executive amnesty, bringing the total number of states fighting Obama’s unilateral immigration policies to 26. “Texas is proud to lead a coalition that now includes a majority of the United States standing up against the President’s rogue actions,” Attorney General Ken Paxton […]

It’s Official: Obama Traded Taliban Five For A Deserter

  Hat/Tip to Foxnews. From the beginning, it was rumored that Bowe Bergdahl was a deserter as soon as the trade came to light. Bergdahl left a note practically saying as much, along with the fact that soldiers in his unit blew the whistle by telling the press that they were pressured to be quiet on the subject. Well, now it is official. A former military intelligence officer claimed Tuesday that the White House was delaying the announcement of its decision to file desertion charges against Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by Taliban-aligned militants last year in exchange for […]

CBO: Obama To Leave Gargantuan Deficits For Next President

  Hat/Tip to Conn Carroll at TownHall.com. Obama will still be screwing America and Americans even after he is out of office. His policies will explode the debt and deficits unless measures are taken to curb the insane spending his programs will incur. Federal deficits may have been falling since the end of the recent recession, but thanks to spending increases in major health care programs, including ObamaCare, deficits are set to explode in 2017, according to a new report by the Congressional Budget Office. Thanks to the recent recession and President Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus, the federal budget deficit reached an all […]

GOP In Full Retreat? Boehner And McConnell Raise The White Flag On Obama’s Executive Amnesty

Hat/Tip to S.A. Miller at The Washington Times. What was it Speaker Boehner said about Obama’s Illegal Actions on Executive Amnesty, again? Oh, yeah: “The House will soon take action aimed at stopping the president’s unilateral action when it comes to immigration,” Boehner said at his press briefing today. “Republicans are in agreement that this is a gravely serious matter.” “The president’s unilateral actions were an affront to the rule of law and our system of government,” Boehner said. “The American people don’t support it and as their representatives we cannot let it stand.” “I said we’d fight it tooth […]

Obama And His Senior Advisers Furious About Netanyahu’s Upcoming Visit: “There Will Be A Price!”

  Hat/Tip to Fox News. Looks like John Boehner finally grew a pair and took action to directly challenge President Obama, albeit in a round-about manner. Speaker of the House, John Boehner invited Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to speak at a joint session of Congress. And he did so without consulting with the White House. It seemed to be in response to Obama’s State of the Union speech, in which he warned Congress against new sanctions on Iran to halt their development of nuclear weapons. Boehner has asked Netanyahu to talk about the threats posed by Iran and ISIS. […]

It’s Good To Be The King: Obama Exempts Himself From “Free College” Tax…

It figures. Barack Obama’s communist proposal to tax your kid’s college savings account has an exemption — for Malia and Sasha Obama. One of the less talked-about proposals President Obama offered this week was to take away the tax-exempt status of 529 college savings plans. These very popular plans allow parents to defer income – before it’s taxed – into savings accounts to then be withdrawn, also tax-free, to use for qualified college expenses. I’ll dispense for the moment with the larger question of whether stuff like this represents a wise overall approach to the tax code (it doesn’t) and […]

Emails Obtained Show Then Governor Jeb Bush Favored A Near Open Border Policy

Hat/Tip to Paige St. John at The Los Angeles Times. We need to keep open our country to people fleeing repression. We need to deal with the millions that are here illegally. … It should be done without … hatred and fear.  Those are then Florida Governor, Jeb Bush in an email to a constituent on the issue of his desire to offer drivers licenses to illegal aliens here in the United States, specifically of course, in Florida. Luckily, the measure never passed. The onslaught by email began when Florida’s Republican governor came out in support of a measure to […]

Top Democratic Senator Attacks President Obama On Iran

Hat/Tip to Al Weaver at The Daily Caller. We’re all familiar with President Obama’s stance on Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons. He is all for it. However, what we’re not familiar with is someone from his own Party being critical of him and his policies regarding Iran and her pursuit of nukes. And we’re even LESS familiar when that criticism comes from not just someone in the Democratic Party, but a high ranking Democratic Senator, like Bob Menendez. “I have to be honest with you,” Menendez said, “the more I hear from the administration and its quotes, the more it […]

As For Last Night’s SOTU, Pay No Attention To The Lame Duck behind The Podium

  I have absolutely no intention of watching Dear Leader tell us how great he is tonight. Because for the next 2 years he’ll be putting the “lame” in lame duck, and really, will the GOP fall for any of his ridiculously liberal policy prescriptions? Nah. Obama is about to discover the meaning of the word irrelevant. Starting with his blueprint for playing class warfare with the part of America that still gets up and goes to work every morning. No matter what Obama says, his policies have been devasting to the middle class. People are worse off now than […]

Former Obama Aide Furious Over Newsmax TV

    Hat/Tip to Jim Meyers at Newsmax. Some Barack Obama Fanboys get really pissy when deprived of their daily dose of MSLSD. Oh, and before any Liberal heads explode over me calling Billy Burton an Obama Fanboy, here is my proof… .   This is @BarackObama‘s best delivered SOTU yet. Energetic, ideas-filled, confident. Not even close, (no offense @jonfavs). — Bill Burton (@billburton) January 21, 2015   . A former senior White House aide to President Obama became furious after he noticed Newsmax TV airing on a United Airlines flight. Bill Burton, who served as Obama’s White House press […]

Seth Rogen Compares Movie “American Sniper” To Nazi Propaganda…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. The same Seth Rogen piece of garbage conservatives rallied around when his movie lampooning North Korea was yanked from theaters. Via Project Casting: Seth Rogen is the latest among a series of actors and critics calling the latest box office hit American Sniper, which opened to $105 million dollars over the weekend. Seth Rogen tweeted “American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.” The movie Seth Rogen is referring to is the Nazi propaganda film called Stolz der Nation (Nation’s Pride) which showed a German sniper killing […]

How Obama Will Pay For His Plan For Free Community College

Well, this didn’t take long and certainly comes as no surprise. That is especially true if you have paid attention to how President Obama has conducted business during the first six years of his administration. He has acted like a typical liberal. When it doubt, always raise taxes. Never cut spending, never cut waste, always, always raise taxes. And that is exactly what he is planning to attempt in the last two years of his presidency. Do you remember his proposal for free community college for anyone who is willing to work for it? He actually described it as a […]

Hanoi Jane Hopes For Open Dialogue With Vietnam-Era Veterans: “I Made A Huge, Huge Mistake…”

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Cry me a river, Jane Fonda is playing the apology card. For many veterans out there, it is “too little, too late, too bad.” Via Stars and Stripes Jane Fonda said she hoped for an open dialogue with veterans after about 50 former military members and supporters protested the actress’s appearance Friday evening at the Weinberg Center for the Arts. “Whenever possible I try to sit down with vets and talk with them, because I understand and it makes me sad,” Fonda told a relatively full theater, responding to a submitted question. “It hurts me and it […]

Obama To Congress: Back Off Any New Sanctions On Iran

  Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. He continues to stand with the Muslims when the political winds shift. Lord knows, don’t let any sanctions interfere with them finishing their nuclear reactor. Via Washington Examiner: President Obama told lawmakers, including fellow Democrats, that he would veto a bill imposing new sanctions on Iran, saying there was “no good argument” for increasing penalties on Tehran right now. “There is no good argument for us to try to undercut, undermine the negotiations, until they’ve played themselves out,” Obama said in a joint news conference Friday with British Prime Minister David Cameron at the […]

No Wonder World Leaders Don’t Take Our President Seriously: Obama To Be Interviewed By Guy Who Created “14 Fart Facts” Video

  Hat/Tip to Jarred Stone at WeaselZippers. So, following our Country’s State of the Union speech, our President will be interviewed by a guy who made a fart video. I’m not making this up. It could only happen in Obama’s America. Via CNS News: President Obama is set to sit down with the YouTube creator of “14 Fart Facts for my Flatulent Friends” after the State of the Union address on Tuesday. In a blog posting at WhiteHouse.gov, officials claim the president will be interviewed by three YouTube personalities as an example of “efforts by the president and his administration to […]

Our Genius President Knows Better How To Run Your Small Business Than You Do…

Hat/Tip to Conn Carroll at TownHall.com.  Well let’s see. If you own a small business, he knows you didn’t build that. If you’ve put countless hours, blood, sweat, tears and personal fortune into it, he absolutely knows you didn’t build that. Now, not only does he know YOU didn’t build YOUR business, but that HE knows better how to run it than YOU do. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said today that President Obama knows how to run small businesses better than small business owners. Now he’s taking that “knowledge” and declaring that ALL small businesses in the US should […]

Liam Neeson Hates Guns, Except When He Uses Them In Movies

Hat/Tip to CNSNews.com.  Just another brain-dead Hollywood liberal that thinks since he’s made a few million by playing make-believe in front of the cameras, he can tell us we shouldn’t enjoy our 2nd Amendment rights. Recently in Dubai, he gave an interview and the subject of the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks came up. After paying the usual lip service to those that were killed, he then went on a short blame-America-first rant. “First off, my thoughts and prayers and my heart are with the deceased, and certainly with all of France, yesterday. I’ve got a lot of dear friends in […]
