If you believe that prohibiting second amendment rights to someone arbitrarily placed on a no-fly list is a sensible step then you’ve been programmed by your government to embrace incremental tyranny. Liberty in exchange for the presumption of security. The sacrifice of (other people’s) Constitutional right to due process and the notion of “innocent until […]

Obama announces newest ‘attraction’ at America’s National Parks. The Department of Interior tried to put a positive spin on the new ban. “As it relates to recently passed state laws relating to the transgender community, visitors to public lands and water sites are welcome to use restrooms that best align with their gender identity,” not with […]

British Voters to Obama: Up Yours x2 !!!

by Mike June 24, 2016

Did we say that Brits were unimpressed by King Barry’s meddlesome pronunciations upon Brexit? Whilst we normally caution against ‘Post hoc, ergo propter hoc’, this sure looks like cause and effect to me – nearly as good as that trip to Copenhagen in 2009 when he brought home the Olympics for Chicago. Oh. Wait….. H/T […]

Given His Terrorism Record, Wouldn’t You Change the Subject?

by Scott Morales June 17, 2016

If I had a record on preventing terrorism that’s as bad as Oblunder’s, I’d change the subject too.  I mean let’s face it, why walk into a buzz saw when you can hop into a getaway car and speed away.   What am I talking about?  His and the left’s insistence in talking about pretty much […]

Why Not Admit the Obvious: The President Won’t Blame Them because He Agrees with Them

We all know that Barack Obama was nominally a lawyer at some point in his past – not a good one, by anyone’s account, but he was one.  Assume for the moment that Barack Obama had as his client The Muslim Brotherhood, or CAIR, or Hamas, or any one of dozens of organizations dedicated to […]

Look, We Shrunk the Presidency

Thumbnail image for Look, We Shrunk the Presidency

The American Spectator Though the competition for the distinction is stiff, I’d have to say that this afternoon’s pathetic exercise in excuse making and whining, when resolve and action are called for, is the most dishonest speech Barack Obama has made in all his years at 1600. And the most cringe-inducing. Obama trotted out all […]

Blogline of the Day – Obama’s “proper perspective”

by Skip June 13, 2016

I wonder if late at night, Obama says something along the lines of, “See Michelle, I told you that Americans can ‘absorb’ another terrorist attack, and Fort Hood, Boston, Garland, Chattanooga, and San Bernardino just keep proving me right.” And now Orlando. (H/T: Instapundit)

Democrats refuse to acknowledge the 2nd largest Islamic Terrorist Act in U.S.

by Kimberly Morin June 13, 2016

Yesterday the 2nd largest Islamic Terror attack took place on American soil. Omar Mateen, who called 911 and pledge his allegiance to ISIS before killing more innocent Americans, committed the biggest act of Islamic terror in the United States since 9/11. Disgustingly, Democrats, including Obama, have decided they will not address Islamic Extremism but would […]

Racism: Not American nor Black and White

by Scott Morales June 3, 2016

Racism is real. I know it is. I’ve witnessed it from a few different groups against a few others. Personally, I think it’s brought about by embracing ignorance and illiteracy, but that’s my opinion based on nothing but my own observation.  Racism is not a one way street. And it is not only white against […]

About that Title IX Thing…

Mario Loyola, writing at National Review, evaluates the Orwellian stylings of the Obama Transgender Bathroom ‘Dear Colleague Letter,’ but I thought this was the money quote. Naturally, the last thing anyone in Congress (or anywhere) thought in 1972 was that for purposes of federal law, students would get to decide what gender they feel like on […]

by Skip April 20, 2016

Not so much – the economic growth in the US has averaged 2% or lower since Obama became President (“sucked” squared) – from Cafe Hayek, it seems that Obama (like FDR before him) is himself the root cause:  Here’s Steve Hanke on the slow-down in economic growth of the past few years.  A slice (link […]

I have a question, a very simple question, for US Speaker of the House Paul Ryan…

by Skip April 18, 2016

President Obama’s executive amnesty represents a “threat” to America’s very system of government, according to House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).  “The Constitution is clear: Presidents don’t write laws, Congress does,” Ryan said Monday ahead of oral arguments before the Supreme Court in United States v. Texas. “Presidents may disagree with the laws, but they […]

One reason I’m a Conservatarian and not a Libertarian

by Skip April 10, 2016

I have always been skeptical on the Libertarian stance that if the US just concentrated on Free Trade with all other countries, military incursions will be greatly reduced and maybe to zero as you don’t fight with your trade partners.  So for them (former Ron and to a less extent, Rand Paul supporters), we really could […]

Leftists get Americans Killed

by Don March 28, 2016

Whatever beneficent sounding name the Marxist leftists now want to be called (e.g., Liberals, Progressives, Democratic Socialists) to hide their real intentions, they are getting lots of people killed.  (And, I am not referring to the murders (Democide) of over 100 million un-tried and un-convicted citizens in the last century by the “utopian” governments the […]
