UK PM Cuts Vacay Short to Take Decisive Action on ISIS; Obama Golfs & Raises Money for Dems

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. It was very telling when our President admitted that he had no idea how to handle ISIS. He gave a metaphorical shrug and went back to revel in the trappings and perks that come with the Presidency. Meanwhile, across the pond, UK Prime Minister David Cameron cut his vacation short to address the growing worldwide threat that is ISIS. While Great Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron cut his vacation short to deal with the Islamic State (ISIS) crisis, President Obama was golfing on Martha’s Vineyard. While Cameron took action, raising Great Britain’s terror threat to “severe,” Obama […]

Harry Reid’s Alma Mater Strips His Name from Building

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. A pledge drive raised $40,000 in five days to strip his name from one of Southern Utah University’s buildings. Southern Utah University, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid went to school, is stripping his name from one of its buildings after the city where the college is located got $40,000 in pledges in five days from people who wanted his name to come down.  The Nevada Democrat’s name had been put on the Southern Utah University Outdoor Engagement Center to honor the school’s famous alumnus, President Scott Wyatt told The Spectrum newspaper. Not long after, […]

Dependency Nation: More Than One Third of Americans On Government Assistance

. Let’s say Obama has a plan to build a permanent Democrat majority. A plan that will guarantee Hillary Clinton wins the White House in 2016. A plan which takes precedence over all other concerns, no matter what the cost to America’s short-term well-being or long-term prospects for security and prosperity. I suspect he (well, actually, Valerie Jarrett) does, and I’d say it looks something like this. Newly released Census data reveals nearly 110 million Americans — more than one-third of the country — are receiving government assistance of some kind. The number counts people receiving what are known as […]

Eric “The Red” Holder Doing His Part To Redistribute Wealth

The Department of (In)Justice under the leadership of Eric Holder has been busy this year suing and obtaining mega-settlements from the Wall Street banks for their roles in subprime mortgage-backed bubble the broke in 2008. The latest case against Bank of America. The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has the story: “Bank of America failed to make accurate and complete disclosure to investors and its illegal conduct kept investors in the dark,” declared a government official in a Department of Justice press release announcing yesterday’s record settlement in which Bank of America agreed to fork over $16.65 billion to settle charges it […]

Obama Stands Alone: Even His Cheerleaders in the Media are Baffled by his Deepening Isolation

Hat/Tip to FoxNews. Obama seems to have been retreating more and more from the everyday responsibilities of being the President of the United States. He gives an obviously forced speech about the beheading of American Journalist, James Foley, and not even 10 minutes later, he is seen ‘fist-bumping’ on the golf course, yucking it up and having a good ‘ole time. This brings to mind the lyrics from an old country song by the Statler Brothers: “Counting flowers on the wall, that don’t bother me at all Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty one Smoking cigarettes and […]

Obama Admin No Show at Memorial Mass For James Foley, But Sent Three WH Aides To Michael Brown Funeral…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. He called Sandra Fluke, but never bothered contacting the families of the agents killed by Fast & Furious… For obvious reasons. Via CNS News: President Barack Obama sent no White House representative to the memorial Mass held yesterday in Rochester, New Hampshire, for James Foley, the American journalist beheaded by the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists. President Obama, however, did send three White House aides to Monday’s funeral for Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African American fatally shot in an encounter with a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo. The memorial mass for James Foley […]

#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 […]

#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 […]

DUI D.A. Rosemary Lehmberg bought 23 gallons of vodka in 15 months, at one store

Rosemary Lehmberg says she doesn’t have a drinking problem. Her credit card receipts tell a different story. When going through filings he found receipts from seven different Twin Liquors stores. They show Lehmberg’s credit card was used to buy more than $3,000 in vodka. The 72 bottles purchased Total more than 23 gallons. “If somebody is buying 23 gallons of vodka within 15 months’ time, is caught with it, three times the legal limit all those things, being that coherent, all suggest that Ms. Lehmberg has probably had some sort of problem for a long time,” O’Brien charged. No wonder […]

Morsi’s wife threatens to expose the relationship between Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood

Hat/Tip to Pamela Gellar at D.C. Clothesline and Raymond Ibrahim at Jihad Watch. Morsi’s wife threatens to publish letters from Hillary Clinton, exposing “special relationship” between Muslim Brotherhood and Obama Administration   From the quote in his autobiography where he vowed to “stand with the Muslims,” to his shameless support for Muslim terror groups everywhere, we’ve all figured out that our President has an affinity for the Muslim Brotherhood. Now Pamela Gellar has been investigating Obama for quite some time now, and it is shocking what she’s found out. More revelations about the Obama administration’s treasonous collaboration with the terror […]

Obama in 2008: ‘You give me this office, my need for vacations is gone.’

Hat/Tip to The Daily Caller and WeaselZippers. Yes, we’re playing our favorite game here at CH2.0, and it’s called, “Obama versus Obama.” In an interview in 2008, you will never guess what he said. Weasel Zippers has revived an old video of Barack Obama promising not to take vacations if he were elected president. The video features then-Sen. Obama discussing his book “The Audacity Of Hope” with New York Times columnist Bob Herbert in 2008. The future president was talking about how those running for president need to be prepared to “give their life to it.” “The bargain that any president […]

SEIU Supports ObamaCare: SEIU Rank and File Loses Jobs-Due to ObamaCare

Ready for a extra thick piece of irony cake?  As we all know, union bosses were big supporters of ObamaCare, funneling millions into democrat coffers.  However, as usual, the boss’s support of democrat causes the people they are supposed to “represent” to lose their jobs.  The SEIU is no exception. And, SEIU represented staff at East Niagara Hospital are being so well “represented” by the SEIU, they they don’t have to go to work-ever again! From Labor Union Report: SEIU-Backed ObamaCare Helps Cause SEIU-Represented Hospital To Cut 10% Of Full-Time Staff With ex-SEIU boss Andy Stern having taken credit for the passage […]

More Cash for Clunkers Fallout: Decreased Industry Output by 3 Billion Dollars

We covered the debacle that was Cash for Clunkers as it happened. Ulterior Motives in “Cash for Clunkers?” Cash for Clunkers: Revisited Cash for Clunkers Revisited: More Damage Done Cash for Clunkers Update: Jobs Created for the Bargain Price of $1,400,000 a Pop Additional evidence of it’s failure continue to come in years later.  The latest Cash for Clunkers evidence comes to us courtesy of the Lonely Conservative… This is how Democrats “help” the economy.

Oppose Common Core? A Union Boss Promises Violence Against You

In typical union goon fashion, the President of the NY United Federation of Teachers, Michael Mulgrew, directly threatened anyone who opposes that anti-educational/liberal indoctrination plot know as Common Core.  Video surfaced on Thursday showing Michael Mulgrew, president of New York’s United Federation of Teachers, as he unloaded a hateful rant against critics of the Common Core Standards Initiative. “If someone takes something from me, I’m going to grab it right back out of their cold, twisted, sick hands and say it is mine!” Mulgrew bellowed clownishly. “You do not take what is mine!” The union boss also challenged opponents of […]

Liberals Complain About “Sketchy App,” News Crew Robbed While Reporting on “Sketchy App”

I caught this on IOwnTheWorld last week.  Apparently, some folks wrote a phone app to warn people away from high crime areas.   As we all know, there are certain parts of every city that are “no go zones,” due to the high probability that you will become the victim of a nasty fate.  Of course, liberals wasted no time openly displaying their racist views… A couple of developers have created an app that directs people away from high crime areas. Gawker writer, Sam Biddle, shrieks in horror and writes, “white people make app for avoiding black people!!!” Who mentioned black […]

Harry Reid Has 352 Bills From The House Sitting on His Desk: Why Wont He Allow Them to Proceed?

You know the familiar refrain-the GOP run House are the evil “obstructionists” preventing the virtuous democrat President and Senate from turning the good ol’ US of A in a virtual paradise on Earth.  And like all propaganda disseminated by the democrats, it is released to the media to be repeated ad nausea.  From there, the sheeple bleat compliantly.  There is one problem with the accusation… It’s completely false.  Instead, it seems that the House has passed 352 bills that have been collecting cobwebs on Harry Reid’s desk.  Here’s more… Post by Lynn Jenkins. So, this is typical democrat politics. They […]

Video Shows Abortion “Quotas” at Planned Parenthood, Eliminates Prenatal Care

A few weeks ago, some water was made hot because a quota was identified at a Parenthood Facility… Of course, it was denied.  It was called a lie, and the compliant liberals drank their Kool Aid and insulted those that discussed it.  However, just like every other scandal involving Planned Parenthood, more evidence was coming.  This time, another former employee released a budget.  And wouldn’t you know it?  There was a quota for the number of Abortions that the clinic needed to provide…   Of course, Planned Parenthood will deny this too, just like they deny that one of their […]

Taking the Senate Doesn’t Matter

I’m writing here because I can – it doesn’t mean that we’re returning to full time writing. To the point.  A lot of you out there are putting your support behind McConnell and Cochran in order to assure a majority in the Senate.  Let me stop you from making that mistake by laying out some reasons not to and then explaining why getting them out is more important than taking the Senate. First, what they did in Mississippi is as insulting as it gets.  Even Hillary Clinton spoke positive of the GOP going after true conservatives and “expanding their base” […]

Some Brief Thoughts on the Nature of Ideological Warfare

Remember this quote from Michelle Obama? “Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone . . . Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual – uninvolved, uninformed.” She was far more prophetic than she will ever know. Since Obama’s election, millions of Americans have become more informed, and more involved.  The Tea Party movement has galvanized millions in calling for smaller, more responsible government.  […]

Some Thoughts on the Current Conflict Between Hamas and Israel, from 2011

Given the current state of affairs in the Middle East, and especially concerning Israel, I thought it might be good to revisit a post that I wrote a little over three years ago… As I’ve watched the “Arab Spring” unfold, and have monitored words and deeds of the “palestinians,” some ideas come to mind.  The entire region is claimed as holy by three religions, and one in particular, has been inflamed into what seems to be a genocidal rage.  With the “new anti-Semitism” out in the open, and spreading, I fear that the next great international conflict will involve Israel. […]
