Ted Cruz Sets His Own ‘Red Line In The Sand': Congress Must Approve Any Iran Deal

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Once again, Ted Cruz displays the type of leadership that is sorely lacking in the Oval Office right now. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pennsylvania, have filed an amendment (#1152) to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, which would require affirmative Congressional approval of any Iranian nuclear deal before sanctions relief can occur. “The Constitution makes clear that Congress must approve international agreements like the one President Obama is negotiating with Iran,” said Sen. Cruz. “A nuclear Iran is the single greatest threat to our national security and […]

Second Amendment? Ted Cruz Smacks Down A Reporter – Hard

Hat/Tip to Mike Miller at Doug Ross @ Journal. On the 2nd Amendment Ted Cruz Mops The Floor With Reporter’s Attempt At A “Gotcha Question.” You’ve gotta love how he so Reaganesguely deconstructs, and thus takes the power away from the typical far left ‘gotcha’ question.   At a recent event, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz was asked the following question: “In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, a statistic surfaced putting support for background checks at 90%. Did you go against the want of the nation with your vote against Manchin-Toomey (a bill that would have required background […]

The Grandpappy Of ObamaCare Circles The Drain: UK’s NHS In Trouble

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. You mean the only problem with socialism is that you REALLY DO run out of other people’s money to spend?? African AIDS Tourists Overwhelming England’s NHS Writing at The Commentator, Vincent Cooper shines a spotlight on the fiscal tsunami engulfing the United Kingdom. …the NHS is so short of resources that patients in some areas had to be treated in a hospital car park. But if that is true, was not Nigel Farage right to condemn the health service for putting the treatment of foreigners above the needs of those who have paid […]

As American As … Apple Pie??

  Setting aside the legal criteria required to hold the office of the President, it doesn’t much matter whether a man was born in Oahu or Lower Slobbovia.  The essence of being American means subscribing to a set of principles on governorship as codified in the U.S. Constitution.  By that measure — which is the only one that really counts — Barack Obama (and by extension, the modern Democratic Party)  is as anti-American as it gets. Could he be: Our Muslim President? No other American President has ever been so partial to Islam and Muslims as Obama and it is […]

Netanyahu Beats Obama ~or~ It’s Morning In Israel Again

  HEADLINES: “NETANYAHU BEATS OBAMA” !! #IsraelElections #IStandWithBibi #KingBibi pic.twitter.com/0vEkQVmvjA — Israel News Flash (@ILNewsFlash) March 18, 2015 Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. It’s morning in Israel, again. Benjamin Netanyahu defeated the left in his country AND ours. Netanyahu faced an insurgent left-wing party, likely because of his hard line against both Iran and President Obama’s horribly failed foreign policy. This is the first time the Israeli left came so close to coming back to full power in this post 9/11 world.   …Netanyahu’s Likud Party isn’t in such a strong position that it can control the whole government and seeing […]

Outspoken Critic Of Obama’s Iran Policy To Face Federal Corruption Charges

Bob Menendez, an outspoken critic of Obama’s Iran policy, will face federal corruption charges I’m sure the timing of this announcement is purely coincidental. According to an exclusive report published first by CNN, Democrat Senator Bob Menendez will be indicted by the Department of Justice on federal corruption charges. The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption charges against New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, alleging he used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts. People briefed on the case say Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on […]

Why Hillary Will Abandon Her Run For The White House

  Hat/Tip Alan Caruba at Doug Ross @ Journal. With scandals mounting, it is plain to see that Hillary Clinton’s plan to be the 45th President of the United States is floundering and she hasn’t even officially announced yet. The revelations, reported initially in the most left-wing newspaper in the nation, The New York Times, that Hillary Clinton used her own private emails to conduct public business, suggests that there are forces within the Democratic Party that do not want her to be its candidate for President in 2016. It’s not like Hillary did not know she was supposed to […]

King Obama Has Been Given The Power To Unilaterally Raise Taxes By…King Obama

Hat/Tip to Warren Todd Huston at Doug Ross @ Journal. Is there no limit to his power? Can no one stop him? 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 by his say-so. No act of Congress needed. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unilateral executive action. “The president certainly has […]

Snakes In The White House

Compared to Barack Obama, Benedict Arnold was a rank amateur… “President Obama has strengthened Israel’s defense in concrete and unprecedented ways …”— White House blog “They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?” — Zbigniew Brzezinski, Former national security advisor to Jimmy Carter The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US PresidentBarack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran. Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister […]

New Documents Obtained Prove Hillary “What Difference Does It Make” Clinton Lied About Benghazi

Hat/Tip to Tom Fitton at Doug Ross @ Journal. Looks like Hillary’s chickens just may be coming home to roost… I’ve always believed that the Benghazi cover-up was about two presidential campaigns: Barack Obama’s reelection campaign and Hillary Clinton’s nascent presidential campaign. Why else would Hillary Clinton personally send out lies about Benghazi within hours, and then keep on pushing these lies until the truth could no longer be ignored. The truth about an attack by an al Qaeda group that killed our ambassador and three other brave Americans in the days before Obama’s reelection would not only have put […]

NJ Assemblywoman Embroiled In Her Husband’s Habitat For Humanity Scandal Won’t Seek Re-election

  Editor’s Note: This is an UPDATE to this story. They were going to throw her off the ballot anyway. Just an hour after her running mate said he will not support her re-election, state Assemblywoman Linda Stender announced she will call it quits when her term ends in January. Stender (D-Union) is facing controversy over her husband’s use of a Habitat for Humanity affiliate to demolish a Sandy-damaged home he owned in Manasquan, and for his attempt to use the non-profit to build a much larger and more luxurious house on the site. “Over the last several days, it […]

Another Awakening: Climate Scientist Tells Why She “Left The Religion”

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. See? There IS hope for the kooky left! Read on for why she “left the religion.” Because as a scientist, I can do the math. How do you explain the 18 years of zero temperature increases, when CO2 levels have continued to rise? The computer model predictions have all failed, every single one of them. I recommend Watts Up With That You can read the studies, they give all the links and analysis there. Please don’t Google ‘deniers’ & run back to me saying that it is not a credible site, go see […]

Grand Old Cavemen

  “I told you guys the Senate GOP would screw us over on DHS funding, but even I had no idea Mitch McConnell would capitulate so easily. I assumed he’d do a major song and dance first, but instead he just went all Ned Beatty in Deliverance the moment Barack Obama looked at him funny.” –Eunuch Mitch McConnell Squeals Like a Pig “This is a total victory for the Obama position,” said a GOP senator unhappy with McConnell’s plan “Counterfeiters use the reputation of a trademark, which brand manufacturers have built up on the basis of the quality of their […]

White House Memo: Don’t Mention Temperature When Discussing Global Warming

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. The temperatures aren’t rising? Then we’ll switch to calling it “Climate Change” instead of “Global Warming.” The temperatures STILL aren’t rising? Er, um, don’t mention temperature when talking about Global Warming. Yes, the Gore-distas really are that pathetic… ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First rule about global warming: don’t talk global warming. The White House quietly released a draft guidance telling federal agencies to consider the impact more carbon dioxide emissions will have on the environment, but only in terms of how much more carbon dioxide will be emitted. When conducting environmental impact analyses on rules and projects, […]

Rudy And The Red

  “Ex-NYC mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s statement that Barack Obama was influenced by communists in his youth and doesn’t love his country isn’t nearly as fascinating as the reaction to it.” – Selwyn Duke “In Obama [the media] see themselves. What he wants to carry out is what they want and they are going to do what they can to make sure these last two years he gets to do just that, the consequences be damned.  So whether it is going after Rudy Giuliani or going after a Congressional staffer for a slight against the Obama daughters, the media is going […]

Habitat For Humanity Builds Luxury Beach House For NJ Politician

  Habitat for NJ Assemblywoman Linda Stender’s Husband, charity tapped for luxury beach house When you donate to Habitat for Humanity, you expect your money will go toward helping needy people put a roof over their heads. And it’s kinda hard to believe an NJ Assemblywoman and her husband qualify as “needy,” especially since she’s a well-connected Democrat who was just appointed to a $90,000 per year job at the Union County Improvement Authority, on top of her $49,000 legislative salary. But Monmouth County’s Coastal Habitat for Humanity thought differently. They approved the Stenders’ application for Hurricane Sandy relief with […]

Radical Islamic Terrorism About To Hit Home: FBI Documents Reveal 22 Islamist Enclaves Are Operating Inside The United States

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Investor’s Business Daily is reporting that there are almost two dozen Jihadist training camps right here in America. Jihad Enclaves: With names like Islamberg and Mahmoudberg, some 22 of what the FBI calls “enclaves” have been established across the U.S. by a group linked to a Pakistani militant group called Jamaat ul-Fuqra. The specter of 21 Christians being murdered “on the shores of Tripoli” in Libya where U.S. Marines first encountered Muslim forces — the Barbary pirates — and threats by the Islamic State against Rome show how President Obama’s “JV team” has […]

Moving Further From The Light

William Shakespeare wrote these words for Macbeth, but insert the president’s name for the first word, “Life,” and you could not have a better description of America’s Nero: “[Obama‘s] but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more: it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.” – President Obama, America’s Nero “At the risk of being melodramatic, it must nonetheless be said: We are in a war for civilization itself, and Barack Obama is not on the right side.” — […]
