Stumped by Difference Between Socialists, Democrats

newParty One of the more interesting presidential candidacies this election is that of Bernie Sanders. As an avowed and proud socialist, Bernie is the brazen epitome of what many Democrats have spent a lifetime denying. The party of Progressivism, Democrats in recent generations have been gun shy about proclaiming their real views, although very occasionally one in high office will slip and admit a fondness for Mao, Stalin or some such. The shyness of many modern Democrats is a far cry from the chest-thumping Read more [...] Continue reading →

Senate Pushing Campus Rape Hysteria and No Due Process

rape free campus Campus rape hysteria is going to be pumped up to justify a law that pretends to address the “crisis” but doesn’t allow due process for the accused. With Rolling Stone publicly crashing and burning on a faux campus rape story that was set up by an Obama Administration advisor, you would think that Lamar Alexander would be more careful. But he seems just fine pushing campus rape hysteria. The Daily Caller reports, “Senate Plans One-Sided Sexual Assault Panel.” The U.S. Senate is planning Read more [...] Continue reading →

DOJ to Investigate Planned Parenthood Videos

abortionParts This could be either a good thing or it could be another Obama Administration cover-up in the making. For good or ill, the Department of Justice has announced that it will open an investigation following the release of two videos that have embarrassed Planned Parenthood by showing a doctor and another official discussing prices for delivering fetal tissue to researchers. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said, "I’m aware of those matters generally from the media, and from some inquiries that Read more [...] Continue reading →

Can Obama make a Deal with Iran?

ObamaIran Recently the United Nations Security Council endorsed the landmark nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers. They also adopted a series of measures leading to the end of U.N. sanctions on the country. Senator Mark Kirk, R-Ill. weighed in, calling the plan to "preempt" Congress' review with a Security Council vote a "breathtaking assault on American sovereignty and Congressional prerogative." Obama told reporters he's hopeful Congress "will pay attention to that broad-based consensus" Read more [...] Continue reading →

Mitch McConnell Claims Congress Helpless before Supreme Court

mitch mcconnell Has Mitch McConnell read the Constitution? Here’s a headline from The Hill: “McConnell: Congress can't roll back gay marriage decision.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) said there's little lawmakers can do to overturn a Supreme Court ruling allowing same-sex marriages in every state, suggesting any further action will rest largely with the courts.  "I don't think so. I think the courts have pretty well spoken. We'll be taking a look at whether or not religious liberty needs Read more [...] Continue reading →

Lois Lerner Emails Were Deleted by IRS Despite Subpoena

lois lerner They claim the Lois Lerner emails were erased with no intention of hiding evidence. It is a new day and, thus, a new opportunity for the IRS to be shameless about hiding evidence. It is hard to keep up with each new development. The last thing I reported was the IRS claiming to find more emails but refusing to give them up. Now, the Washington Times reports, “IRS erased Lois Lerner’s emails even after subpoena, audit says.” The IRS erased backup takes with Lois G. Lerner’s emails even Read more [...] Continue reading →

Boehner Punishes Republicans for Opposing Secret Obamatrade

boehner Two hundred mainstream GOP Congressmen cheer as Boehner punishes Republicans who opposed giving special unilateral trade authority to Barack Obama. It used to be a total mystery to me how Germany could produce the Nazi regime so quickly, and with such lethal outcomes. How could the German people allow—even participating through election—the rise of such a vicious regime? They had the catalyst of WWI; all the United States required was a single attack on 9-11. I no longer wonder at all. Read more [...] Continue reading →

Congress Moves to Protect Religious Freedom from Feds

GayWeddingCake Two Republican lawmakers are proposing a bill that would protect the religious freedom of organizations if the Supreme Court recognizes same-sex “marriage.” If you remember, Bob Allen posted about Albert Moehler’s review of the arguments presented to the Supreme Court about same-sex “marriage.” One of the things that the government spokesman told the justices was that a decision in recognizing such pseudo-marriage would put religious employers in jeopardy. They could be required to hire Read more [...] Continue reading →

IRS “Finds” 6400 Lois Lerner Emails but Won’t Let Congress See Them

lois lerner They say they need to review the Lois Lerner emails to make sure there are no duplicates. They are just helping us out. Really? I would say that the shamelessness is unbelievable, but it is all too believable. The IRS has no reason to fear Congress. They come up with pathetic, transparently false excuses to refuse to allow Congress to find any evidence of wrongdoing. And they know that no one is going to do anything to make them comply. Fox Business reports, “IRS Finds 6,400 Lois Lerner Emails Read more [...] Continue reading →

Democrats Block Obamatrade

nancyPelosi Wha-a-a-a-a-a? ... It's finally happened. The day has come when the House Democrats' actions are actually saving the Republic from the Republican leadership and the ambitions of the Democrats' own creation, President Obama. That's right. The party that was so happy a year ago about Obama's ever-expanding usurpation of powers that some of its members were sending him lists of topics to use executive authority on, has just blocked Obamatrade. It wasn't solely the Democrats' doing, of course, Read more [...] Continue reading →

The New American on Why We Should Oppose Obamatrade

paul ryan boom They give seven reasons to oppose Obamatrade and any one of them is more than enough. From the New American: “7 Reasons Why Trade Promotion Authority/Fast Track Must Be Defeated.” In our companion article “10 Reasons Why You Should Oppose the TPP and TTIP,” we detail some of the most extreme dangers presented by President Obama’s two mammoth pseudo-free trade agreements, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). On May 22, the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Wikileaks Shows Secret Trade Deal Includes Giving Obama More Immigration Authority

obama dictator Breitbart.com analyzed the wikileak documents and found a “chapter” on executive immigration authority. Thanks to Wikileaks, we already know that privacy is compromised by the trade deal. Since Congress is set to give Barack Obama special fast track authority, it becomes almost certain that the treaty will be passed. So we effectively have Congress voting an Obamatrade bill into law in order to find out what’s in it. Pelosi was apparently an innovator and model for Republicans when she Read more [...] Continue reading →
