Yesterday, I posted about a Washington Post story that showed how big government lobbies for its own expansion. Taxpayer money is used to fund campaigns that call for more taxes.
Right after that piece was published, I found this story in the National Journal, “Darrell Issa Subpoenas Top Obama Political Aide.”
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said Friday he was subpoenaing a top administration official, David Simas, the director of the White House's Office Read more [...]
One of the major problems with turning a blind eye toward illegal immigration is that, by looking away, you miss an opportunity to prevent crimes against American citizens. Instead, you inflict criminals on the populace who shouldn’t be here.
One such victim has written President Obama a letter.
CBS 5 - KPHO
According to KPHO in Arizona,
The mother of a fallen Mesa police sergeant is writing President Barack Obama in hopes of changing immigration laws in the U.S.
Police said Mary Read more [...]
This story is supposedly a “happy ending.” NBC reports, “‘Firing’ Over Legal Marijuana Called Mistake, Man Gets His Job Back.”
This pot controversy went up in smoke.
A Washington state man who was the first person in Spokane to buy legal recreational marijuana this week, and then said he was fired over the resulting media coverage, got his job back Thursday and the company in question called the whole affair a misunderstanding.
Michael Boyer, 30, said he was ordered to take a drug Read more [...]
As you may know, the Manassas City Police were issued a warrant to induce an erection (via some kind of injection, hopefully) in a seventeen-year-old boy so they could photograph his private part and thus prove that the picture he sent his fifteen-year-old girlfriend was really his.
Now the Washington Post reports that they are backing off, but this is not really that significant. It is true (and good as far as it goes) that the police have been shamed by the media attention they have received Read more [...]
So, did you hear how workers at the VW plant in Chattanooga recently voted down an attempt by the United Auto Workers to organize? The union thugs were really, really mad about it, but they lost.
Oh, but there's more to the story now. Despite the vote of their workers, did you hear that VW is now bringing in the UAW anyway? I guess it's just an elite disease to ignore the will of the people and do what they want, regardless of what anyone else thinks.
As USA Today reported,
In a move that's Read more [...]
From Breitbart.com: “Exclusive: TSA Allowing Illegals to Fly Without Verifiable ID, Says Border Patrol Union.”
Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Read more [...]
What percentage of American citizen children do you think sleep in a $1000 bed?
I know none of mine do.
From Breitbart.com: “HHS Sec: Beds for Illegals Can Cost Feds Up to $1k.”
At a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing Wednesday, President Barack Obama's Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Burwell said that beds for illegal immigrant children can cost the federal government up to $1,000 per bed.
While asking the senators to approve the Obama administration's request Read more [...]
There are many lessons that can be drawn from the current border crisis, but the most terrifying is the cold truth that there is no one in charge in America.
This crisis -- for that's what it is -- has been building up for at least two years since the president of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, made an illegal run around Congress and abused executive authority to enact the Dream Act, a piece of failed legislation that was rejected by Congress for very good reasons, among them that Americans, Read more [...]
According to the Daily Mail, “Sir Richard Branson Gives Up Beef to Save the World.”
Tycoon Sir Richard Branson announces with great fanfare that he has renounced beef.
‘I have given up what was previously one of my favourite foods,’ he declares.
‘Meat consumption today contributes to global warming and environmental degradation.’
The article notes, correctly, that Branson is a giant hypocrite:
At the latest count, Beardie’s company Virgin Atlantic operates 38 aircraft, creating Read more [...]
How often does the ACLU take the same position as Ted Cruz.
His three questions to the Senate committee were riveting:
Should Congress be able to ban books?
Should Congress be able to ban movies?
Should Congress be able to prohibit the NAACP from speaking about politics?
As you can see in the above video this proposed amendment to the Constitution would empower congress to do all three.
As Ted Cruz wrote in the Southeast Texas Record,
The answer to all three questions should, Read more [...]
