There are a lot of issues Americans are concerned about. Islamic terrorism and Ebola rank at the top of the spectrum of things we worry about. Or do they? According to a new poll from Fox News, that may not be so much the case. No doubt, we are concerned about the rise of Islamic terrorism and Ebola. We want neither of them on our shores, yet here they are. Most Americans despise ObamaCare, even though it was rammed down our throats and into our pocketbooks. But among all the issues we look at, it seems the one that is first and foremost, the one issue that may very well define the election results on November 4, is the economy.

Does anyone really believe the border between America and Mexico is safe and secure? Maybe so, because that’s what we are being told. How many times have we heard a Washington politician make the declaration that the border is more secure than it has ever been? Too many times to count. By my estimation, that is a complete lie, no matter if the politician in question is a Democrat or Republican. It’s not hard to make that determination; all one has to do is look at the results of decades of lax enforcement. The leaders of both political parties have failed this country by not making it a priority to secure the border. It really is that simple.

With barely two years left in his presidency, Barack Obama is reportedly turning his attention to his legacy. In addition to creating a presidential library and publishing his papers, he’s thinking about a final resting place when his time, like every human’s, finally comes. Now, I hope this president lives long and strong for countless decades after his term ends. But rumor has it he is already considering an inscription for his tombstone when, far into the future, he is ready to meet his Maker. Here is an exclusive scoop on the engravings most under consideration:
Top ten choices of inscriptions on President Obama’s tombstone:

Despite the fact they are all trying to tell you something different, their records speak for themselves!
Deroy Murdock at National Review Online has quotes from vulnerable Senate Democrats up for re-election. To a man, or woman, they all make a similar weasley claim to be independent, even critical of Obama. Yet when it comes time to cast their vote in the U.S. Senate they march in lockstep with Obama and Harry Reid.
This chart says it all:
And while these Dems try and claim this election isn’t about Obama, Obama said it was:

Pinprick bombing does little to stop ISIS!
As a follow up to this earlier post we have these two charts from the BBC showing the intensity of U.S. airstrikes against ISIS:
Hardly a shock and awe bombing campaign it’s been called “shock and yawn.” Contrast the above with more serious U.S. war efforts in the past where hundreds of strikes would take place in the first few days of an air campaign. Is it any wonder this air campaign is having little effect? Analysis by the Associated Press concludes that Obama’s strategy has “hardly dented the core of the Islamic State group’s territory.”
This week the Pentagon predicts that ISIS will take control of the Syrian city of Khobani putting tens of thousands of → Read More
By my count, we have about 27 months remaining of the most open, honest, and transparent administration in American history. That is President Obama’s description, not mine. In January 2017, he will leave the White House and his successor, whomever that may turn out to be, will take over. The history of the Obama administration will begin to be written and only time will tell how it will be described. It is almost guaranteed that his Nobel Peace Prize will be mentioned. I’m still unable to wrap my head around that one, but I guess that’s because my conservative mind just can’t grasp the liberal lunacy of awarding someone who has virtually no experience with the Nobel Peace Prize.

If I had the time to do so, I could point you to countless posts, both on this blog and on others, warning Americans of the “unintended” consequences of the monstrosity known as ObamaCare. The biggest consequence came in direct contradiction of the lie repeated, ad nauseam, by President Obama that if you liked your health care plan or your doctor, you could keep your health care plan and doctor. That has already been proven to be false, but as I write this post, there are plans to make it even more so. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia will be announcing shortly that the health care plans they offer, that do not meet the “high standards” of ObamaCare, will be canceled.

It has been some time since this topic has been discussed. You see, 2014 has been a year of changed focus. Much of the year has gone by with us focused on the very real threat of Islamic terrorists who seek to do us harm. And on the rest of the Middle East, Israel, Palestine, etc. Ebola has commandeered its fair share of news coverage with the deaths it has caused and even coming to the United States, and rightfully so. All of these are serious issues that need to be discussed. They affect each and every one of us. But in changing the focus of our attention, something has been lost in the shuffle. The federal debt is still alive and kicking.

If there is one thing that can always be depended on, it is this fact. Liberals never lose sight of their goals. They may hide those goals from the American public and they may have to delay them until the time is right, but they are always focused on getting what they want. It has served them well for decades. Thus, we see the changes they have brought to our country reaching fruition. They have slowly, surely been changing America, and not for the better, for a very long time. Just so you know, in case you don’t realize it by now, President Obama is one of those liberals and he hasn’t lost sight of his goals.
What do you suppose are those goals? → Read More
Everyone is familiar with this sight. Men and women in professional looking suits, dark sunglasses, and a cord coming out of their suit jacket to a communication device in their ear. And if you look closely, you may see a suspicious looking bulge on their hip or under their arm. That would be the weapons they are carrying to make sure the people they are protecting are safe and sound. We’ve all seen the sight on the news and on movies. These are the people of the Secret Service and they are charged with protecting the President of the United States and his family, as well as the Vice President and family and other high-ranking officials in the United States Government.

Forgive me if my rantings get a little out of hand this morning. I really do not intend to continually bash President Obama, day after day after day, but some things need to be mentioned. They bear harping on because they are so completely ludicrous and outrageous.
President Obama started off his first term in office by traveling the world and apologizing for the wrongs of America. Do we have our problems? Most certainly, we do. But unlike any President before him, he had no problem going to foreign soil and bashing America. He apologized for what he considered to be our failings and he did so incessantly. It was enough to drive any decently patriotic American to grinding their teeth. That was about → Read More
If you haven’t noticed, the United Nations is having its annual meeting of the minds in New York. Heads of state and other prominent characters from around the world are gathering to discuss the issues that are supposed to concern us all. You know, important issues such as global warming, radical Islam, climate change, and more global warming. One would think radical Islam would be at the center of the agenda, given how many people it is killing across the Middle East, but it is taking a back seat to global warming. The powers that be are gathering to bemoan the fact that our planet is well on its way to destruction. All because, of course, us humans are simply not doing what we → Read More
This post is not to debate the eight years George W. Bush served as President of the United States. I agreed with much of what he tried to do, but also had my disagreements with his policies. Having said that, I have always admired the man as someone who holds the distinction of being President during a terrible time in our history. Very few Presidents have had to deal with the issues he had to face while in office. Given the chance to talk at length with any public figure, past or present, I would choose President Bush, hands down.
Now, we all know how President Obama has handled his years in office. Much of the time he has served in the White House → Read More
