Color me skeptical and answer this question. Will the Obama administration ever decide they have made enough changes by imperial decree? Trust me folks, the current resident of the White House is taking his statement that he has a pen and a phone very seriously. We all thought that was a somewhat funny phrase, but Mr. Obama, not so much. He is taking action every day to fulfill those words.
My opposition to → Read More
As if we haven’t already had enough money wasted on funding green energy projects that do not work, President Obama wants billions more, according to a new Treasury Department report. Yes, you read that correctly. Remember Solyndra and the other failed green energy projects that were propped up with billions of taxpayer backed loans? That’s not enough money thrown down a rat hole, so Mr. Green President is trying to get billions more. Why → Read More
James Madison, a Federalist, and therefore a proponent for passage of the Constitution and of a stronger central government, affectionately known as the “father of the Constitution”, in arguing for the Constitution’s passage and in trying to alleviate the fears of those citizens skeptical about giving more power to a central government, said in Federalist 45, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are → Read More
The West is shrugging off the seizure of Crimea in Ukraine the same way we ignored the Rhineland invasion!
Is it just me or is anyone else bothered by the seeming lack of focus on Russia’s seizure of Crimea? I know public schools today teach only touchy-feely tree hugging and the only history taught is how bad the White Man was, but surely there must be more than a relative handful of us → Read More
The major news in the conservative world this week has been the goings on at the annual Conservative Political Action Committee meeting in Washington, D. C. It seems to have become a sounding board for possible future presidential candidates to stretch their legs, testing the wind beneath their wings, so to speak. Many of the speakers may be in the running for the 2016 Republican nomination for President. Since I am nowhere close to → Read More
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Same song, different verse. More of the same. All of these adjective phrases aptly describe what happened in Congress yesterday. Darrell Issa had requested Lois Lerner return to his committee and testify about the IRS targeting of conservative groups for political purposes. As it was last year, her answer was the same. She came, she sat, and when she was asked a question, → Read More
If the news from the past few days hasn’t been enough to dampen your fire, try this on for size. Tis the season for budget proposals in Washington. President Obama is the first to reveal what he wants to spend our money on, with Paul Ryan soon to follow. I’ll try to take a look at Mr. Ryan’s, when he turns it loose, but for now, all we have to go on is → Read More
Is this what Obama meant when he said he wanted to improve relations with Russia? As news continues to pour in, one thing is clear: The Russians have seized the Crimea, a part of the sovereign nation of Ukraine. Thousands of heavily armed troops wearing uniforms without any identification but in vehicles with Russian license plates have surrounded key buildings and facilities. The Crimea is just several hundred miles from Sochi, site of the → Read More
If ever there was evidence of the upside down world of our immigration system, it would be the story of the Romeike family from Germany. Uwe and Hannelore Romeike are Christians and because of their Christian beliefs, they decided to home school their children, even though German law does not grant them that right. They felt it important enough that they defied that law and were facing increasingly higher fines and the possibility → Read More
When Barack Obama was running for President, many of us had doubts about his commitment to Israel. Even though he claimed to support them with no reservations, we were not so sure of his real intentions. This is what he said when he was bidding for the White House, claiming Israel’s security was non-negotiable and sacrosanct. He has repeatedly reiterated that statement throughout his first term and into his second. Again, many of → Read More
A Western leader cannot look at Russia the same way he would a Western country. It’s a huge mistake and Obama is making it!
The lack of any real foreign policy expertise around Obama is really shocking. The White House staff is mostly populated with Obama cronies, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, known for lying about the Benghazi attack, is just a hack. Things are little better at the State Department. What did → Read More
I have said many times, President Obama is good at what he does. And what does he do, you may ask? He divides our country, stirring up hate and strife wherever he goes. He uses the same tactics on every issue he addresses. It matters not if he is talking about income inequality or the rights of homosexuals, he always uses the same kind of inflammatory speech to stir up his captive → Read More
Last weekend’s meeting in Washington, D.C. of the National Governors Association was covered as a genial meeting of the governors with President Obama. I believe I have heard it described as positive and constructive. As it turns out, and is now being revealed, those adjectives do not seem to apply. Not at all. What really happened is something that many of us have grown to expect from President Obama. He has his say → Read More
