House Committee: No Funding for New Gun Control

The House Appropriations Committee has warned the Department of Justice that it has no plans to approve funds for President Obama’s latest gun control schemes. House Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies subcommittee Chairman Rep. John Culberson wrote in a terse letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch that any executive orders on gun control should not be paid for out of already approved funding. “I want to express the committee’s expectation that the Department of Justice will Read more […]

NOAA Won’t Release Global Warming Data to GOP

Congress is finally investigating some of the global warming claims made by the Obama Administration, particularly a study that refuted the 15-plus-years pause in warming that other studies have reported. But the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is refusing to fully comply with a subpoena issued by the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, chaired by Rep. Lamar Smith. Smith issued the subpoenas two weeks ago for emails and records from U.S. scientists who participated Read more […]

Increase in Defense Spending — Will It Really Keep Us Safe?

President Obama and Congress are agreeing on something.  Isn’t that great?  It would be if they weren’t agreeing to spend more money that we don’t have. Tom Coburn and William Ruger wrote about the bipartisan irresponsibility in USA Today: President Obama had drawn a red line by vetoing the recently passed defense authorization act while clearly stating that he wouldn’t sign another continuing resolution. Instead, he demanded an increase in spending for both domestic and defense spending. Many Read more […]

Step One to Defund Planned Parenthood, Check!

Pro-life supporters around the country are rejoicing at the news released Friday that the US House of Representatives voted to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.  The news seems almost impossible in the face of all the media support of  the organization and the media’s inability to accept that the tapes of abortion clinic personnel discussing the sale of fetal body parts were real. Liveactionnews.org gave this report: The U.S. House voted today on legislation to halt the taxpayer funding Read more […]

Obama Willing to Toss America to Wolves

President Obama, once again showing his contempt for the military and for Congress, warned this week that he will veto a national defense bill unless Congress removes funding for Guantanamo Bay, where the U.S. has been holding terrorists for years. Congress can’t gather its spine to defund Planned Parenthood, but our president is willing to defund the military for the sake of a pet project on his leftist to-do list. White House spokesmonkey Josh Earnest said that Obama would veto the spending Read more […]

Democrats Block Obamatrade

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 […]

For GOP, It’s Now or Never

Now that President Obama has officially used his executive pen to reward millions of illegal aliens with a free pass and all the government benefits they want, it’s time for the GOP to jump into the fray swinging. Either that, or it’s time to go along and reveal that there truly is only one shadow party controlling this country. It’s a heck of a choice, the sort of thing that thriller novels are written about. There are people with famous names and big followings who are now calling Obama Read more […]

If Amnesty is Popular, Why Did 5 Dems Vote against It? And the GOP Caucus?

We are assured by many sources that amnesty is popular with the American people. The fact is that, at most, immigration is a really low priority for many voters. At least, that is what polls have said not too long ago. But now we have direct evidence that Democrats and Republicans alike know that voting for “immigration reform” is an unpopular decision. As the Daily Caller reports, Sen. Jeff Sessions pressured five Senate Democrats — plus the entire GOP caucus — to symbolically Read more […]

Administration Invites Congress to Tour Immigrant Facility But Only If They Follow Their Rules

This isn’t some totalitarian closed society trying this tactic, this is our own government. They clearly wouldn’t be offering up this kind of dog and pony show if they weren’t hiding a very ugly truth somewhere. I hope lawmakers tell the Administration what they can do with their “rules.” We’re being forced to pay for this orchestrated disaster, but they want to control all descriptions and pictures of what they’re doing? From the Daily Caller: “Obama “Admin Forbids Lawmakers From Taking Read more […]

Media Shield Law About Protecting Careers, Not Truth

New York Sen. Chuck Schumer was trumpeting a proposed media shield law today, saying there are enough supporters that it may be able to pass this year. Schumer mentioned that in addition to the Democrats, the bill is supported by five Republicans and the White House. The proposed law would protect journalists from having to reveal confidential sources when they publish information embarrassing to the Powers That Be. Sounds like a good idea on first blush, but as you might expect with any Read more […]

Obama: ‘I Can Do Whatever I Want’

President Obama’s abuses of power are well-known and numerous, so when he said within earshot of the press, “That’s the good thing as a president, I can do whatever I want,” during a tour of Monticello, he was really just confirming what we already know. The soundbite occurred as Obama and guest, French President Hollande, were bending the rules at Monticello by touring a normally restricted area. It was a nothing maneuver, probably done deliberately so the press would run with the quote and Read more […]

Obama a Half-Pint King Clutching his Tiny Scepter

Most tyrants have the good sense to have the Army in their back pocket before declaring themselves rulers of all they survey. But not President Barack Hussein Obama, who proudly declared this week that he has “a pen” and “a phone” and that he would use them to write executive orders and executive actions to bypass Congress if it doesn’t pass the laws he wants. “We are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we are providing Americans the kind of help that they Read more […]
