African Americans Think
Race Relations Worse Since 2009
Many people, of all races, creeds, and political persuasions, used to believe that a Barack Obama presidency would mark a turning point for race relations in America. They ignored Obama's political background, his long association with the hate-mongering pastor Jeremiah Wright, and the radical affiliations that Obama outlined himself in his two autobiographies. Now, after nearly six long years, even the President's staunchest supporters – African American voters –are starting to see and admit the obvious: Barack Obama is not a racial healer. In fact, he's the exact opposite. For more, read this article at National Review.Local Archived Copy
Has Hillary Ever Been Right?
At WorldNet Daily, columnist Patrick Buchanan asks a question that liberals everywhere ought to be asking before they shake their presidential campaign pom-poms for Hillary Clinton.
Was she right to vote against the Surge in Iraq in 2006?
Al Gore: Wrong Again
Climate-change charlatan Al Gore has been so wrong so many times in his dire global warming predictions that it's a wonder anyone listens to him at all. Despite the fact that he's made a fortune doing it, the man simply has nothing worthwhile to say on the subject of earth's climate. But he continues to command respect among a sizable number of people – many of them government officials and liberal elite opinion leaders. So here in the fact-centric community, we consider it our duty to keep pointing out when Mr. Gore's wild predictions go belly-up, as they always do.
Imagine millions of soldiers on our southern border, flooding our nation for the purposes of colonization. Imagine also that some in our midst were providing material support for this invasion – intentionally undermining our border security.
The IRS scandal – in which a politicized Internal Revenue Service has become an arm of the Democrat party and an instrument of political repression used by liberals against conservatives – should serve as a warning to every politically-aware American citizen, regardless of party affiliation.
Good question, isn't it? It was asked by Bernadette Lancelin, in an interview with a Fox News reporter. She lives in Houston, near a closed middle school that the Obama administration is thinking of converting into a detention center, where large numbers of illegal alien children will be warehoused. Whether people like Bernadette agree or not, and whether ordinary Americans agree or not, the President and his party are seemingly intent on turning the United States into the orphanage of the world. They see power and political advantage in it. Bernadette and the rest of us see our neighborhoods getting worse. Don't try and tell us we're racists or that we don't like little Hispanic children. We just think they should be back in their home countries, with their mothers and fathers.
The increasingly lawless Obama Administration is encouraging thousands of Central American families and unaccompanied children to come to the U.S. illegally. Now, to relieve the squalid and overcrowded conditions at the facilities used to house the illegals, the President is sending buses and planes full of them to cities all over the country. Thankfully, the residents of at least one small town, Murrieta, California, are standing up and blocking the buses, at no small risk to themselves. We can only hope that more citizens follow Murrieta's example.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria – aka ISIS – has, in a strikingly short time, gained control of an immense area stretching from the eastern edge of the Syrian city of Aleppo, all the way to Fallujah in western Iraq. Their stated intention is the creation of a new Caliphate – and little seems to be standing in their way.
When Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein did their now-legendary reporting in the 1970s, they shone a spotlight on abuse of power and corruption that led to the resignation of a president. It was the epitome of what a free press can do when it fulfills its constitutional role and duty.
Hillary Clinton is looking less and less inevitable as the next President of the United States, don't you think? Her recent press interviews haven't gone well, the press isn't ignoring her gaffes like they used to, the sales of her new book are cratering...
Did Barack Obama really break federal law, and release committed, fanatical jihadists to distract the country from the VA scandal? It sure looks that way to us. The White House has now admitted what every thinking American who's paying attention already knows: it refused to tell Congress before trading away five Taliban heavy-hitters from Gitmo for one undeserving American military deserter: Bowe Bergdahl.
It was an article of faith with liberals that the election of Barack Obama in 2008 would result in the restoration of the world's good opinion about America, after all the PR damage done to her reputation by the insensitive, blundering, war-mongering President Bush. Conservatives have always been dubious about that assumption.
Back in 2009, one of Hillary Clinton's most high-profile projects as President Obama's Secretary of State was her effort to "reset" the dysfunctional relationship between the United States and Russia...
The Obama Administration is operating on a strict timetable when it comes to implementing Obamacare – except when it isn't. Putting aside for the moment the wanton disregard the President has for the constitution, his constant tinkering with implementation dates of the law's myriad provisions is making it impossible for busineses of any size (especially small businesses) to plan ahead.
If You Don't Like Obamacare,
Don't Worry – This President
Re-Writes The Law Every Day!
Bookworm, the feisty conservative San Francisco lawyer (and one of our favorite political blogs) brings us news of an email she received recently that sheds light on the liberal mind-set of 21st-century America.
White hat hacker David Kennedy isn't buying claims by the Obama administration that it has "fixed" the troubled Healthcare.gov web site. "When you develop a website, you develop it with security in mind," Kennedy said. "And it doesn't appear to have happened this time."
James O'Keefe has done it again. The crusading conservative undercover journalist has released a new undercover sting video that catches Obama's health care 'navigators' advising applicants how to cheat, conceal income, and generally game the new health care system.
"If you like your plan, you can keep your plan." Since 2008, Barack Obama has repeatedly and forcefully made that promise to Americans, first while campaigning for, and then while defending Obamacare -- his signature political achievement. A huge number of Americans took his words at face value.
Obamacare is the greatest thing ever to happen to America or to Americans. How do we know this? Because Obama has been relentlessly spreading this gospel since 2009. It’s nothing if not interesting, then, that Obama has promised to veto legislation that would require him and his family to enroll in Obamacare and that would make Congress enroll on the same terms as other Americans.
President Ronald Reagan was that rarest of politicians: a true believer in the greatness of the American people. Rather than seeing government as an instrument to mould and shape Americans to the will of the elite governing class, Reagan saw government as at best a necessary evil that had overgrown its proper boundaries in previous administrations and was now in need of cutting back.
The media have warned about looming climate catastrophe four times in the last 100 years. But they can’t decide whether runaway global warming or global cooling will do us in.
Since the beginning of time, the overwhelming majority of people living in the world have never experienced the kind of liberty and freedom that people take for granted every day in this country.
No less a liberal icon than The New York Times itself acknowledges that to the extent that it reduces the cost of health insurance premiums, Obamacare does it by limiting health insurance plan choices for consumers.
In June of 2008, presidential candidate Obama made this promise to the American people: "In an Obama administration, we'll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year..." But now the medical actuarial experts of Medicare have formally stated what has become increasingly obvious to anyone who has been paying attention: Obamacare is going to be a financial disaster for American families.
Even the liberal commentators at The National Journal have finally admitted what Republicans have known from the get-go: not only will Obamacare not reduce the cost of health insurance -- it will in fact drive it to ever-greater heights.
If Barack Obama really wants to inject us into the Syrian fight, he had better come to terms with the fact that he is putting the United States on the side of al Qaeda. So says commentator Robert Fisk in this bracing new article.
The Republicans have done a terrible job selling the conservative message to black voters, so the time could not be better for a new political action committee dedicated to consciousness-raising for those generations of black Americans lost to the seductive -- and destructive -- promises of the Democrats. ElectionDebates.com gives three cheers and two hearty thumbs-up, to this new video introducing an important new group, FreeAtLast.com. (Hat Tip to the excellent Bookworm Room site.)
