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 […]

After Obama Slobbers All Over The Mullahs, Ayatollah Calls On U.S. Youth To Join Jihad

  Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. So despite all the brown-nosing, sucking up, and general, all around ass kissing President Obama has done to the Ayatollah of Iran, he still urges our own kids to join his jihad. Way to go, Obama. On Friday, President Barack Obama slobbered all over himself to come to the aide of the Iranian Mullahs–mostly to spite our Israeli allies. But on the very same day Obama gave the Mullahs his undying love, the Ayatollah urged our own kids to join the world wide movement of violent, Islamist jihad. On Friday, Obama disgorged […]

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 […]

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 […]

Democrats Want To Know Who Will Profit From Keystone Pipeline

  The worst kept secret in America is that the Democrats do not want the Keystone Pipeline to go forward. The reasons they use as an excuse for their resistance to Keystone escape anyone with a modicum of common sense. They publicly worry about the possibility of a spill from the pipeline causing an environmental disaster. The statistics I was able to find suggest that there are somewhere around 2.5 million miles of pipeline throughout the United States. Not all of these transport crude oil, with some carrying natural gas and other types of fuel. Do accidents happen? Most certainly […]

Iran To Send Ships To Atlantic, Off US Coast: Nuclear EMP Threat Develops

Hat/Tip to TeaPartyCrusaders.com. Iran recently announced their decision to run ‘exercises’ of their naval operations. Small in scope and size, it doesn’t mean they aren’t a direct threat to the United States. Last month, the Iranian Fars News Agency announced that the fleet would undertake a three-month mission and would consist of a destroyer and a helicopter-carrying vessel. While the Iranian deployment may consist of two vessels, the commander of Iran’s Northern Navy Fleet, Adm.l Afshin Rezayee Haddad, said that Iran would send a “fleet” to the Atlantic Ocean. These ships undoubtedly would be under constant U.S. Navy observation while […]

The GOP Takes A Dive

Boehner and Obama Join to Pass Bill Funding Obamacare and Amnesty “John Boehner has just squandered the election results before the Republicans even are sworn in.” – Rush Limbaugh “$2.5 billion for illegal immigrants and Obamacare is funded through the fiscal year, that’s a conservative speaker? I don’t think so. It’s a sad day that John Boehner doesn’t realize that there was an election … he is everything that’s wrong with Washington. He’s a Democratic Party-lite … He should not be the speaker. He should be replaced.” – Sean Hannity “I think he ought to be able to pick up […]

Powercrats, Politocrats, And Bueaucrats

  In the opinion of this humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in, the devolution of the political parties and the government established by our constitution in America is nearly complete. The so-called two parties system of Democrats and Republicans has devolved into an amorphous group of what we might call “Politocrats”. The Politicorats pretend to stand for something they believe will encourage the uninformed tuned-out electorate to vote for them, but they are only interested in their own power, perks, and prestige.  So, in that sense, there is little noticeable difference in the two parties when […]

SHOCKER: Deportations of Illegals Fell to Lowest Point in 2013

  Hat/Tip to Suzanne Reisig Olden at ConservativeInfidel.com. Contrary to the popular Democratic Talking Points, Obama is NOT tough on immigration. Well, Obama kept his promise to SOMEBODY. Immigrant deportations under the Obama administration fell 14 percent in fiscal year 2014 compared to the prior year, according to data from a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. This is the lowest number under his administration so far. Democrats can argue to the contrary all they want that Obama is tough on illegals and deports them, but the numbers say otherwise. Republicans were right in their continued statements that deportations have fallen, […]

Withering Heights

“I am sorry for a fellow when, every time he goes off by himself, he is in the worst company he was ever in in his life.” – Sam Jones *** “The President’s unconstitutional action is a direct threat to our Republican system of government and will have catastrophic consequences for the American people. It must be stopped.” – Sen. Jeff Sessions *** “Anyone who believes that the GOP will have a newly chastened Obama to deal with in 2015 must be living in one of those states where marijuana was recently legalized … his idea of compromise was for […]

The Executive Outlaw

 Based on his subversive actions, by definition Barack Obama is indeed making war against America, and it’s high time Congress responded by declaring their own war on a man who became a domestic enemy the day he violated his oath by refusing to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” (Time for Congress to Declare War on Obama) *** “Obama has NO constitutional legal authority whatsoever to alter, circumvent, subvert or otherwise ignore the standing laws of the United States concerning Immigration and Naturalization.” – North American Law Center *** “It is no accident that Obama is […]

Dirty Jobs Host Mike Rowe Destroys Liberal Hothead’s Argument: “It Is Impossible To Be A Christian, And Vote Republican!”

Hat/Tip to Onan Coca at Eagle Rising and Michael Cantrell at Young Cons.  Most Americans, at least most Americans who watch TV know Mike Rowe from his hit television series, Dirty Jobs. And what’s not to like? He’s a very likable guy, who isn’t above poking fun at himself, he honors hard working Americans across the country and has even launched a non-profit foundation to help out of work Americans find jobs – dirty or not. From his foundation’s website: The mikeroweWORKS Foundation announced its partnership with Scholarship America to establish the mikeroweWORKS Foundation Education Scholarship Program.  The 2013 fund has […]

Must See Video: Democrats Tell Bob Woodward Privately That They Hate Obama Too [VIDEO]

Hat/Tip to Alex Griswold at The Daily Caller.  Bob Woodward is an award winning journalist and best selling author. As an investigative journalist, he has written about differing Presidents, Republicans and Democrats alike. On CBS’ Face the Nation Sunday, he made vocal what many of us have known all along – that Obama has not only made enemies of the GOP, but he’s also alienated his own Democratic Party. . . . .

There Are So Many Great Takeaways From Tuesday’s GOP Landslide

  For 8 years Harry Reid was the ultimate obstructionist, blocking every Republican amendment, refusing to hold votes on legislation passed by the House, and nuking the filibuster to get Obama’s radical judicial nominees confirmed to the DC Court of Appeals. So naturally, after he got his ass kicked Tuesday, he wants to “work together” with Republicans. Hey Harry, in the immortal words of Dick Cheney, “Go fuck yourself.” I hope Mitch McConnell assigns Reid an office in the basement, next to the trash compactor. And then promptly forgets that Dingy Harry even exists. The American people didn’t give the […]

Democrats Now Hold Majority of Appellate Court Seats

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Quietly, almost as if he applied his inane ‘leading from behind’ strategy to filling the courts, President Obama has begun tipping the scales of justice over towards the left. President Barack Obama has been quietly reversing the federal appellate courts’ balances over the past six years, with Democratic appointees now holding the majority of seats on nine of the country’s 13 United States Courts of Appeals. It’s a little-noticed shift with far-reaching consequences. “With all the gridlock, it is forgotten that one of the most profound changes this Congress made was filling the bench,” […]

Change, Intervention, and Dependency

The concept of the government “solving” all the problems of the world has crept into our society over time. With every new program, every new entitlement, the public has  gradually become accustomed to the government solving the ills of the world. And what of fact that the government seemed to make all of these problems worse? Well, that’s neglected. After all, the government is taking care of it-I don’t have to worry about it, right? Starting with the “progressive” movement in the late 19th century and accelerating greatly since the great depression, the government has vastly increased it’s meddling in […]
