How Can Obama Fight National Pessimism? He’s the Reason for It

This video from Newsy Politics from last night seems surreal to me: “Fighting National Pessimism Is An Uphill Battle For Obama.” You can find the text of the video here. Unemployment is down — at its lowest point since before the financial crash in 2008. The percentage of uninsured is down, meaning fewer Americans are going without health insurance. That employment statistic is meaningless and people who don’t want insurance are being punished unless they pay rising prices for useless Read more […]

No, Mr. President, a Gun Is the Responsibility of the Owner

Barack Obama makes the collectivist premise of his New York Times editorial clear in the headline: “Guns Are Our Shared Responsibility.” Why? The Second Amendment directly contradicts what Obama claims. It says that Congress may not share responsibility for guns. They must keep their hands off of privately-owned firearms. THE epidemic of gun violence in our country is a crisis. Gun deaths and injuries constitute one of the greatest threats to public health and to the safety of the American Read more […]

Sorry, Obama. Only 2% Believe Guns Are our Most Important Problem. More Worry about Government and the Economy.

You may have noticed that Barack Obama and the media are spending a lot of time trying to convince the American people that the availability of guns is a major issue facing the nation. According to Gallup, both have completely failed in getting us to stampede in that direction. Only 2 percent of American think guns the most important issue. What are Americans’ chief concerns? The top ones were the federal government itself (!), the economy, jobs, immigration, and healthcare. Here are the Read more […]

More Americans Believe the Second Amendment is Our Safety than Those Who Think It is a Threat

This Washington Post story tells us what you probably already know (especially if you have been reading this blog): “Obama plans curbs on guns.” President Obama will press ahead with a set of executive actions on guns next week despite growing concerns in the United States over terrorism that have dampened some Americans’ enthusiasm for tighter firearms restrictions. The president will meet Monday with Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch to finalize a series of new gun control measures and will Read more […]

Obama’s Devastating Admission? Or Dodge?

The Federalist voted to classify Obama’s statement as an admission: “The New York Times Just Memory-Holed This Devastating Obama Admission.” A story published by the New York Times late Thursday night caused some major media waves. The story, which was written by reporters Peter Baker and Gardiner Harris, included a remarkable admission by Obama about his response to the recent terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California. By Friday morning, however, the entire passage containing Obama’s Read more […]

Obama’s Attempt at Mass Hypnosis: America Stands Up for Abortion

The 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion was a shame to this country. So were all the politicians who treated the Supreme Court as the rightful dictators of America. But it is still true that much of America is still resistant to much of the abortion industry. That’s why the ACLU sued a Catholic hospital system for not offering abortions. In fact, given the struggles that pro-abortionists are fighting in many states (remember Wendy Davis), it is obvious the nation is split over Read more […]

Obama’s Christmas Fantasy: Jesus Taught “Bedrock Values of All Faiths”

Barack Obama took it upon himself to preach his version of Christianity at the lighting of the National Christmas Tree. An excerpt: Now, this is the 93rd time Americans have gathered by the White House to light the National Christmas Tree.  And as always, this tree is not alone -– all across America, in living rooms, and offices, churches, and town squares, families and neighbors are gathering to decorate trees of their own and get into the holiday spirit.  It’s a chance to come together and Read more […]

Russia: U.S. Has Helped ISIS

From the Stating-The-Obvious-Department we get this story from Bloomberg Business: “Russia Says U.S. Policies Helped Islamic State, Interfax Reports.” U.S. actions in the Middle East helped Islamic State to gain influence, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said, according to Interfax. The strengthening of Islamic State “became possible partly due to irresponsible U.S. politics” that focused on fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad instead of joining efforts to root out terrorism, Medvedev Read more […]

Obama Accuses Republicans of ISIS Recruitment

Guy Benson wrote at, “Obama: Let’s Face It, These Republicans Are Practically ISIS Recruiters.” First the Kerry disgrace, then this. Our president is the world’s most powerful Internet troll: During his APEC address tonight, President Obama had some tough words for Republicans refusing to take in Syrian refugees. Yesterday he said that not taking in refugees would violate America’s values, but today he got much, much tougher in going after them. He said the “fear and panic” only Read more […]

Barack Obama Has Doubled the National Debt while in Office

The national debt has grown by almost ten trillion dollars—thanks to Democrats and Republicans. The Washington Times reports, When President Obama signs into law the new two-year budget deal Monday, his action will bring into sharper focus a part of his legacy that he doesn’t like to talk about: He is the $20 trillion man. Mr. Obama’s spending agreement with Congress will suspend the nation’s debt limit and allow the Treasury to borrow another $1.5 trillion or so by the end of his presidency Read more […]

Barack Obama Has Killed More Innocent Civilians Than All the Gun Owners in Oregon Combined

While he preaches restrictions for gun owners, Barack Obama is fine with people remaining oblivious to missile deaths. One of the few bright points in listening to live news about the mass shooter at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, were the locals’ repeated statements that a gun-free zone gives a mentally disturbed person a large number of soft targets—people he can shoot at without expecting any personal risk at least until the police arrive. Gun owners are not the problem. Gun Read more […]

Was Barack Obama Ever Really Going to Enforce Immigration Laws?

The promise to enforce immigration laws was key to the campaign for “comprehensive immigration reform.” But it was a lie. As you may have heard, deportations are way down. Not only are general deportations not happening, but even criminals are getting to stay in the country rather than face deportation. Mark Krikorian writes at the National Review, The operational reason for the collapse in deportations is the Obama administration’s enforcement-suppression policies, which it has labeled Read more […]
