Muslim Terrorists Try To Disrupt Texas ‘Draw Mohammad’ Free Speech Event, Get Killed In Attack

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. Two would be Muslim terrorists made to disrupt the free speech event held in Garland, Texas last night. The pair drove up to the event and started shooting at police stationed outside. One officer was slightly injured but the two Muslims were instantly put down in the attack. As of last night police were still investigating to see whether there was a bomb inside the car in which the pair drove to the event. The event held at The Curtis Culwell Center in Garland was the “Mohammad Art Exhibit and Contest” sponsored […]

Those Against Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law Are Either Ignorant Or Liars

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. Another outstanding Op-Ed from Warner Todd Huston, printed in its entirety. I have to be straight forward right at the outset on this faux controversy over the new Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Those losing their tiny minds about it are either wholly ignorant of what is in the law, or know full well what is in it and are lying about the law in order to push their anti-Christian, gay-supporting agenda. There can be no other choice, here. Firstly, before we even get to the case in Indiana, to act as […]

How Does One Leftist Piss Off Another Leftist: Try To Take Away His Power

Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. The hard left Democrats are on board with whatever Obama wants to do, until he wants to take away some of their power… Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) says when it comes to fast-tracking President Obama’s trade agreements, “it’s not constitutionally proper or right for us to give the authority to the executive, no matter who it is.” Ellison told a crowd at the AFL-CIO Young Worker Summit last Friday that he doesn’t agree with the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) or “Fast Track” measure. “Now Fast Track says that ‘Congress, we want you to take your constitutionally designated authority […]

No, George Washington DIDN’T Say America Should Stay Out Of Foreign Affairs

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. A great piece on the Father of our Country. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ With the talk of how bad Islam is for civilization and the question of just what to do about it, we are seeing those lightly informed about American history claiming that our founders–in particular George Washington–warned us to stay out of “foreign entanglements.” In fact, however, Washington neither said this, nor meant for such a policy to be enacted. Many on the left and the isolationist right try to use the father of our country to support their ideas against the GOP […]

Obama Purposefully Set Clinton Up To Get Away With Email Crimes

  Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. So THAT’s why he never filled that job… President Obama made dead sure that Hillary Clinton would never get caught using illegal private email systems while Secretary of State by refusing to appoint an official internal inspector general for the Dept. of State during Hillary’s tenure, a new report shows. It is the duty of the president to make sure that every government department has its own appointed Inspector General to serve as an internal watchdog over an agency. But during Hillary’s entire tenure, Obama never bothered to fill the vacant […]

Time For Torches And Pitchforks: Dictator Obama To Impose New Taxes Via Executive Order

This president really does believe he’s our king. That we must bow before him. That he can impose his will upon us by fiat. The Constitution? That’s so old, who cares about it anymore? Certainly not anyone in his administration! He’s got a pen and a phone, and he’s going to use them to unilaterally raise taxes. President Obama really does think he is a king or an emperor of some type. Now he claims that he is going to use executive orders to raise taxes on us all. This arrogant prince thinks he can do anything he wants just […]

Liberal Logic: When Businesses and The Constitution Collide

It seems that there is another Constitution related double standard for the liberals out there.   Does the First Amendment apply to businesses, or does the Second? Or, does the Constitution only apply when it can be misinterpreted in order to deprive Americans of their rights?

The Bergdahl Swap – More Questions Than Answers

Bergdahl Classification Isn’t What Matters – Don’t Miss the Larger Picture All over the media there is horror and consternation in regards to the Bergdahl return.  He is being called a traitor and I have seen many calls for the death penalty floating about.  You are missing the bigger picture here.  First and foremost, the military never classified Bergdahl as a deserter.  That makes a huge difference in how the military should behave in trying to find and free him.  The military had an obligation to do so.  Secondly, the bigger picture seems to be getting missed here.  President Obama broke […]

President Obama, Which Side Are You On?

The Obama administration gives away FIVE HIGH LEVEL TALIBAN JIHADISTS and we get a soldier who went AWOL, and that in all probability aided the enemy. What the friggin’ hell? Obama has either totally lost his mind, is insane, or he willingly gave aid to the people who are killing our soldiers; the the very people our soldiers are fighting, the enemy. Yes, Andrew C. McCarthy is correcti n saying that we need to be focusing on the fact that President Obama has freed five high value Jihadist members of the Taliban and Haqqani network while the Taliban and Haqqani […]

Irony Alert!! Flashback to 2008: Obama slams Bush for NOT going thru Congress…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. I’m thinking this is a case of do what I say, not what I do. In other words, Standing Operating Procedures for Liberals… Yeah, but this was before the Imperial Presidency. Via Right Pundit: “I taught constitutional law for ten years, I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President” .

An Example Of Trey Gowdy’s Aggressiveness

Holy moly! I’d hate to have Trey Gowdy investigating something I “allegedly” did. Mr. Gowdy is leaps and bounds smarter, sharper, quick “on his feet,” intelligent, and down right knowledgeable than anything or anyone Obama has on his team. I believe if Gowdy is allowed free rein on the Benghazi investigation he’ll expose Obama, Hillary and all the rest for the frauds and traitors they are.  Check out the way he grills this guy. Almost makes you feel sorry for him …

Supreme Court: Prayer at council meetings constitutional

  The Supreme Court upheld the right of local town councils to have prayers in conjunction with their meetings. The 5-4 decision said that even if prayer featured Christianity, as long as the council was “inclusive” of other religions, if applicable, that it did not violate the Constitution. The Supreme Court has upheld the right of local officials to open town council meetings with prayer, ruling that these do not violate the Constitution even if they routinely stress Christianity.  The court said in 5-4 decision Monday that the content of the prayers is not critical as long as officials make […]

Freedom Is Just Another Word

What good is our constitution and its first ten amendments, the Bill of Rights, if the courts and our elected officials don’t uphold it? Is “freedom”, as Janis Joplin said in her song, Me & Bobby McGee. just another word? To this humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in, it does seem that we are losing our freedoms at such an alarming rate that maybe freedom is just another word of little significance. Let’s review some of our guaranteed rights. The First Amendment Freedom Of Religion _ In this once Judeo-Christian nation, it seems to me […]

President Obama’s Top Ten Most Divisive and Un-Constitutional Executive Actions

Since he took office in January of 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama has flouted the rule of law which is the bedrock America was founded on. He has visibly encroached upon and exceeded the boundaries set forth in the United States Constitution. Now Obama hasn’t written more executive orders than his predecessors, in fact, in his first five years he is on par with other one term presidents. But in his case,it isn’t the quantity, it’s the quality of the EOs.   The Heritage Foundation has taken the time to compile a list of the top ten most egregious un-Constitutional […]

Dems Push for a National Popular Vote – Reader Post

TCL over at The Conservative Lady (which is an awesome site), has news that George Soros and the Democrats are once again pushing for a change in our national elections.   Graphic via:  Evil Klown – Exposing Idiocy This is an old cartoon. I guess it should now say “…the most Facebook friends”.   I’ve posted on this subject in 2011, and now it’s coming back into the forefront.  The New American and Dick Morris are reporting that the Democrats have a plan to “transform” our county’s voting system, and not in a good way.  The plan is for the […]

Will our nation change its name and do away with states some day?

Our nation, as constitutionally formed, is The Republic of the United State of America. In theory, a republic is where the supreme power is vested in the citizens who elect people to represent them. Do you feel that we are living in a republic? Do our elected officials really represent their electorate? And, what about the words: United States? Are we, a constitutional union of states, where all power rest with the states except for the enumerated powers constitutionally assigned to the federal government? Our nation may have started out as The Republic of The United States of America but […]

Huge Win for the 2nd Amendment Foundation

John W. Jackson is an Australian citizen, who legally resides in America, specifically in New Mexico. He applied for a concealed carry permit and was denied on the fact that he was not a citizen of the United States, even though he was a legal resident. He sued the state of New Mexico, along with the Second Amendment Foundation for his right to obtain a concealed carry weapon permit. The crux of the state’s defense was that it is impossible to do a full background check on citizens of other countries, even though they reside legally here in the US. […]

Has Our Constitution Failed Us?

First, an update on the situation here on the shores of the “Sea of happiness”. This blogger’s first paragraph sums it up quite well: (certain words are edited out for security reasons) After three weeks of repression, fifteen dead, at least 60 reported tortured tortured and more than eight hundred detained, including opposition leaders and reporters, the XXXXXXXXX students have at least shown the world what little respect the XXXXXX  administration has for the human and civil rights of the people. XXXXXXXX has seen similar repression before during XXXXXXXXX rule, but never has it been compressed in such a short period of time. Or […]
