Is there nothing sacred to the IRS? Is there nothing they will not pursue to make sure the federal government gets “their fair share” of taxes? Evidently not, for there is a new tactic they are looking at to make sure all taxes are paid. Has your employer ever provided you with a free lunch or dinner? Are there any other perks they provide to show you they appreciate your hard work? If so, → Read More
Sharyl Attkisson is a journalist who was formerly with CBS. She no longer resides with that network because she felt the network was not defending some of the stories she ran that were critical of President Obama and his administration. Funny thing, that. Coming from the man who declared his administration would be the most open and transparent in American history. As it turns out, that is not so much the case. Especially when → Read More
As if this will come as a surprise to anyone, but the United Nations is once again crying wolf about climate change. I suppose you have to give them credit for effort, but it’s clear they are not about to give up their mantra that climate change is real and brought on by global warming. Never mind that the Earth warms and cools in cycles that can be tracked, if only they would → Read More
T.W. Shannon is making waves as he runs for the Senate seat being vacated by Senator Tom Coburn. He started off behind James Lankford, in terms of name recognition, but he is rapidly closing that gap. In this interview on Fox and Friends, he addresses the actions and words of Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama. It’s not at all hard to see exactly why so many Oklahomans like T.W. Shannon.

This really should be classified under “more of the same” from President Obama. Anyone who is surprised that he is going on the attack against GOP efforts to require identification before a person can cast a vote can not have paid attention for the past five years. The man is falling back on one of his favorite tactics. When in doubt, accuse your opponents of something and let the media help you make → Read More
Eric Holder is one of those people who are so predictable, it’s stopped being fun trying to “guess” what he will do. Whenever he is confronted by his transgressions, of which there are many, he always plays the race card. We all know how he crossed verbal swords with Louie Gohmert. When faced with the truth about his actions from the Texas Representative, Holder warned him “you don’t want to go there, buddy”. → Read More
If you have paid attention to the news, you know the investigation into the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups is still ongoing. In spite of the efforts by Elijah Cummings to hinder the investigation at every turn, as well as the loud protestations of liberals and progressives that this is nothing more than a witch hunt, a true scandal does exist. Darrell Issa has uncovered ample evidence, much more than a mere suggestion, → Read More
If you have read even just a few of the posts we have on Political Realities, you will know one of the things that we rail against the most is the overreach of the federal government. I, as well as most of my coauthors, believe the federal government has far overstepped its boundaries, as established by the United States Constitution. The people in Washington, D.C. that run our government need to be reined → Read More
For the record, I am using a Mozilla product to display my WordPress editor page in which I am writing this post. I use two Mozilla products in my work every day, as well as at home. This is not a vendetta against Mozilla, although I would probably switch browsers and email programs, if I could find suitable programs.

Remember when President Obama said 2014 would be a year of action? If I am not mistaken, that was around the time when he also highlighted his pen and phone and said he would be taking steps to implement his policies, even if Congress refused to play ball with him. He has already been working on some of the issues he feels are important, but Monday may be when the year of action really → Read More
Following the model of Crimea’s seizure as Obama does nothing!
Removing Ukraine’s name from government buildings seized on Sunday. Raising the Russian flag and nationalist banners defying the police to dislodge them.
BBC Report:Ukraine: Pro-Russians storm offices in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kharkiv
Good News? Obama’s Order of Meals Ready to Eat Arrives!
Perhaps we shouldn’t say Obama did nothing. After all, the military rations he promised in lieu of the defensive weapons the Ukrainian Prime → Read More
Former CIA #2, top Clinton friend, has fingerprints all over it!
You can’t be blamed if you didn’t learn about the Benghazi hearing in the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. The Obama media has done their best to ignore the story in the same way they downplay or ignore the IRS and other Obama scandals. And on Wednesday, they had a good excuse with the Fort Hood shooting. But Wednesday’s hearing was pivotal for → Read More
Can we trust a man who has lied so often about ObamaCare to tell the truth this time?
In a word, NO!
In the shaky months of the ObamaCare rollout we were repeatedly told that we’d have to wait weeks for reports on the number of signups. That was when there was no good news to report. Now, surprise, surprise, less than 24 hours after the March 31 deadline for enrolling in ObamaCare → Read More
