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 […]

U.S. Knows ISIS Locations, Refuses to Bomb Them

“What are you prepared to do?” That was the iconic line Malone, Sean Connery’s character, said to Elliot Ness, played by Kevin Costner, in “The Untouchables,” a movie about four unlikely officers trying to take down Al Capone during Prohibition. In that film, most of the officialdom in Chicago was complicit with Capone’s liquor and crime trade, even turning the other way when Capone’s gang murdered people. The movie shows Capone, the kingpin of all crime, living large in public, followed by Read more […]

Veto Expected from Obama After Senate Passed Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood

Being pro-life, reading the headline “Senate Votes to End Federal  Funding for Planned Parenthood” was thrilling.  In a world that has so many senseless and crazy things going on, it is great to finally feel like the good guys get to put an “X” in the WIN column.  But, then reality sets in.  I know deep in my heart that even though the Republican majority in the Senate pushed the bill to end the federal funding of Planned Parenthood through, President Obama is not going to just stand by and let 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 […]

Just Print Some More Money!–US Is Urged to Bail Out Puerto Rico’s Bankrupt Economy

It seems the Obama Administration is in the business of printing money.  Today it was announced that the President is urging Congress to give the Island of Puerto Rico a handout to help them not go bust before the end of the year.  The bankruptcy protection offered to Puerto Rico is of some special type that is not available to the 50 states. Here’s the report from The Washington Post: With Puerto Rico buried in debt and on course to completely run out of money by the end of the year, the Read more […]

Veterans for Peace Draw Attention to Questionable Military Action

Since the bombing of the Doctors Without Borders Hospital 2 weeks ago, there has been a lot of talk about the future of American military presence in Afghanistan.  The group Veterans for Peace is drawing attention to the bombing and to the ongoing presence in Afghanistan that has recently been drawn out to 2017. The Washington Times reports: Members of the group Veterans for Peace will hold a two hour vigil Saturday afternoon in St. Louis, Mo. the group announced Friday. The organization — Read more […]

Drone Wars–Approved Assassinations

U.S. Citizens have put their heads into the sand on this issue.  The President and the Federal government as a whole hold tremendous power over life and death when it comes to drones.  The policy in the Obama White House seems to be “trust, but don’t worry about verifying.” Consider this summary of the approach taken by our leaders to kill campaign targets at the expense of others who are in no way a danger to anyone: “Taken together, the secret documents lead to the conclusion that Washington’s Read more […]

Russia Strikes in Syria, Tells U.S. to Get Out of Way

Nothing says professionalism like having no clue what just happened on your own watch, especially when you’re the American secretary of state. John Kerry was actually in the process of speaking with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov about coordinating Russian military movements in Syria with the U.S. airstrikes against ISIS, when the Russians sent a lackey to the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. The lackey’s message? We’ve started bombing; one side, please. I would have liked to have seen Kerry’s 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 […]

‘Ooh La’ Is French for ‘Oy Gevalt, Obama!’

The more President Obama goes out in public in foreign lands, the more he reminds me of a cartoon caricature. I haven’t quite pinned down which one, yet. I’m thinking some sort of cross between Mr. Magoo and Prince John the thumb-sucking lion from Disney’s animated “Robin Hood.” I’ll keep working on it. … Point is, the guy just gets more ridiculous the more he tries to assert how “cool” and in charge he is. His latest outing is a case in point. I’m assuming you’ve all seen the workout Read more […]

Delusional Obama Loses It Over Obamacare Failures

Fresh off another Obamacare website crash, President Obama on Tuesday jumped on his critics’ cases and took the country on a tour through Fantasyland. During his rant, Obama essentially blamed all the problems with Obamacare on his critics, who in his delusional thinking want to keep people from getting health care. (And here you thought we were all just one-dimensional racists.) “Why are folks working so hard for people not to have health insurance?” Obama demanded. “Why are they so mad about Read more […]

Putin Administration to Obama: You Hit Like a Girl

The Obama Administration’s “sanctions” against Russia for the Crimean referendum over the weekend are, as expected, just plain embarrassing. In case you missed it, Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia over the weekend, and Russian President Vladimir Putin didn’t even have to register dead people to do it. Oddly enough, people in that part of the globe seem to like Putin and Russia. As scheduled last week, that referendum result led President Obama to swing with Read more […]
