Obama Administration Admits To Lawlessness

  Hat/Tip to Caroline May at Breitbart. Old and busted: If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it…. New and wow: If a government lawyer admits the President broke the law and no MSM is around to hear it…   The Obama administration violated U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s injunction halting President Obama’s executive amnesty programs, Justice Department lawyers have admitted to the court, according to the Washington Times. The Times reports that in a late night filing Thursday, Justice Department lawyers revealed that the Department of Homeland Security had issued some 2,000 three-year […]

The Further Criminalization Of Parenting

Danielle and Alexander Meitiv were recently investigated by the police and child welfare for allowing their two children, aged 10 and 6, to walk home from the park without them.  The walk is approximately one mile in length.  A person, who very likely thought they were doing a good deed, saw the children and called the police. The Meitiv’s live in Silver Spring, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, DC.  The law in Maryland states that a child under the age of 8 cannot be home alone without someone who is at least 13-years-old.  It says nothing about being outside of […]

ISIS Beheads 21 Coptic Christians: White House Unable To Call It Terrorism Or Call The Victims Christians

  Hat/Tip to Breitbart and the Tea Party News Network. Our President and his administration will go to great lengths to avoid calling Radical Islamic Terrorists what they are. He can’t even say that their victims in this instance were Christians. The 21 Egyptians weren’t killed because they were from Egypt. They were slaughtered because they were infidels, namely Coptic Christians. On Sunday night, White House press secretary Josh Earnest issued a statement condemning the actions of Islamic State Militants after they released a video of the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians. The statement from the White House described […]

NY Police Find Arsenal Of Weapons At Home of Man Accused Of Plotting To Kill Cops

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Breitbart. It’s not enough to kill cops, now they need to kill WHITE cops. Thanks President Obama for the biggest racial divide in America since the Civil Rights protests of the late ’60s. A Queens man arrested after he was allegedly overheard vowing to kill white cops in New York was found to have an “arsenal” of weapons, including bulletproof vests and firearms with serial numbers filed off, the NYPD reported. Police say that Elvin Payamps of Queens was heard talking on his cell phone lamenting the fact that neither of the two officers killed the […]

Merry Christmas And Happy New Year From The EPA

  The Grinches in the Obama administration’s Economy Pulverizing Agency (EPA) are spreading their own diabolical idea of Christmas cheer on our fragile economy by dumping 1200 new regulations on it with an estimated economic cost of $20 billion, which brings the EPA’s added regulatory burden for the year to over $200 billion. For the new year, they are already hard at work to drive up the cost of energy produced by fracking on federal lands. You can read the details here. With two more long years left, you can bet that President Obama, with the help of his pen […]

BREAKING: Govt. Hiring Thousands of New Federal Employees To Immediately Approve Applications For Obama’s Executive Amnesty

  Hat/Tip to Katie Pavlich in the Tipsheet at TownHall.com. Oops, the cat’s out of the bag. All those jobs that his amnesty was going to create seem to be going mostly to new federal employees. A December 1 bulletin from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) details the immediate opening of 1,000 permanent federal employee positions at a new operational facility that will open soon in Crystal City, Virginia. Newly hired employees will be tasked with approving applications submitted by illegal immigrants taking advantage of President Obama’s recently announced executive amnesty program. From the bulletin, itself: “USCIS […]

Bam! Emeril Slams ‘Obama Nonsense,’ Laments Decline of Restaurant Industry

Hat/Tip to TownHall.com. It seems all areas of our society are waking up to the nightmare that is named Obama… As a celebrity chef, cookbook author, and TV personality, Emeril Lagasse is one of the most well known chefs in the country, and with a net worth of about $50 million and a food empire that brings in an estimated $150 million, he’s one of the wealthiest, too. So it was surprising to hear him say at a recent event that he has “nowhere to go, really—other than broke.” The reason? Predictably, Big Government. “It’s becoming a very challenging industry to […]

ObamaCare Forces Insurance Companies to Spend YOUR Money

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. ObamaCare Wants Your Financial Information so Insurance Companies can Enroll You WITHOUT Your permission AND Charge You! . . ACA Requires Insurance Companies Enroll You In Plans Without Your Permission Today I received a letter from my insurance company Horizon Blue Cross, Blue Shield of New Jersey (“BCBSNJ”).  They alerted me that my plan (which already went up from $187 to $216) would now be rising again. I had expected this day would come but what I did not expect was that the ACA empowered insurance companies who had a person’s checking account on file to automatically enroll […]

If you’re wondering if our government is friend or foe, wonder no more.

Political cartoonists are some of our most clever people. With simple caricatures and a few words they are able to capture the essence of an important issue facing the people. In my opinion, this cartoon which I borrowed from Zero Hedge, explains perfectly why Americans on Main Street do not feel like the government is working in your best interests. h/t @butifulabsurdt That’s exactly right, isn’t it? The well being of the folks on Main Street was not a fundamental of interest to our central planners in Washington, D.C. Your well being was not a part of their calculus. Instead, […]

ObamaCare – Fake Applicants Approved For Health Care Subsidies

It’s been a while since I wrote about ObamaCare, but this is worthy of a post. We all know, if we will admit to the knowledge, that ObamaCare is a boondoggle. It is a massive federal program that is poorly designed and even more poorly conceived. It is an attempt to take over the health care system in America, out of the control of the patients and doctors and placing it in the control of the federal bureaucracy. If for no other reason than that, it is a bad law and even worse program. When you consider the ineptitude and […]

Veterans Affairs – Latest Example Of Government Gone Big And Bad

If you have read many of my posts, you will know I am not a fan of big government. I have railed against it on more than a few occasions and I firmly believe the quote from Thomas Jefferson in the above picture is true. Most bad government comes from having too much government. For the most part, it does not work the way its champions claim it will. Time after time, we have seen the examples. Government agencies growing too big for the pants they are trying to wear. The EPA and the IRS both think they are God […]

Executive Order Creates New Department of Feline Education

President Obama today issued a sweeping executive order creating the Federal Department of Feline Education. “America faces perhaps no greater threat than feral cats mired in the vicious cycle of poverty” declared the President in a Rose Garden ceremony. Many are familiar with the tragic case in New York City where signs were placed in the Gateway National Recreation Area warning felines that they cannot live in cat colonies on Federal property.  Because of the high illiteracy rate among feral cats many could not read the sign resulting in the colony being tragically killed by a SWAT team.  Americans are […]

Guest Post From The Classic Liberal: There Is No Conservative Movement

Note From Matt:   The following  is a guest post from The Classic Liberal.  It is posted here because our friend has the habit of forcing us to think about what we are doing.  I’m all for debate, and being challenged, so give this a read, and see if it makes you consider your thinking or actions.   Dan Riehl wrote a couple of posts earlier this year that are worth examining. Here’s the second one first. What Conservative Movement? Bush 43 was correct, there’s more than enough evidence to conclude there is no genuine Conservative Movement in America today; […]

Judge Napolitano: Do we have a constitution?

ConstitutionDayPic

Do we have a constitution anymore? Can the republic be restored? Judge Andrew Napolitano and Utah Senator Mike Lee examine this topic in the below video. Please take a few minutes and watch it. Mark Levin says we are living in a “post constitution” period in America. Conservative talk show host Mike Church believes our constitution is dead and that we need to get over it.  The other day I was listening toAndrew Wilkow and he made the case that DUI checkpoints which is now commonplace in America are 100 percent unconstitutional.  Think about it, every time law enforcement set these checkpoints up to randomly pull over cars and subject […]

Look Out Uncle Sam!!!

Viral video

Remember the video the left made about gramma being pushed over a cliff by the conservatives? That video was played up by the MSM and went viral in the liberal blogoshere. The video below was made in response but it will receive no attention from the MSM. Help make this video go viral as well. A big Hat Tip to Bunkerville for finding this. Original Post:  Conservatives on Fire

Profiles in Useful Idiocy: Mitt Romney Espouses the Big Lie

I’ve been openly critical of Mitt Romney as a POTUS candidate.  From his creation of RomneyCare, to his waffling on the issues, I believe that he is a RINO who will talk a good game to get elected, but will govern as a “Republicrat.”  For more evidence on that assertion, I offer you this from the Daily Caller… Liberal Al Gore took to his blog Wednesday to applaud the former Massachusetts governor for his stance on climate change. “Good for Mitt Romney,” Gore, the former Democratic vice president, wrote about the Republican seeking the White House in 2012. He continued: “While other Republicans are running from the truth, […]

Evidence of Democratic Success! Record Number Enroll in Government Anti-poverty Programs!

welfare_work_hard

One measure of success for Democrats is the number of people that they have helped save from starvation and poverty. It is a worthy measure of whether a policy is successful or not, and Obama, Peters, and all the other Democrats often campaign about how hard they have worked to expand the ‘safety net’ and ‘feed the starving masses.’ In their speeches they talk about how they are setting a goal for themselves of getting as many people who need help into the right government programs. And on their watch, under the Democratic Congress and a Democratic President, they have been successful […]

Pat Dollard’s “Young Americans” Debuts at Big Hollywood

Here’s a cross post from Feed Your ADHD.  Snarky Basterd wanted me to re-post, so here it is. If you thought the tiny glimpse of the Iraq War you were allowed to see all those years through the polished prisms of pretty-boy liberal-run cable TV was real … get ready to have your ass blown up by an IED. Pat Dollard, who’s gracious enough to lower his standards and let your insane narrator have a weekly spot on his site, PatDollard.com, had his tenacious and riveting and truly ground-breaking Young Americans video series debut yesterday at Big Hollywood. It’s the […]
