President Obama

Walt Havenstein: Another episode of “I didn’t know what it REALLY meant back then”, but does he now?

by Skip July 15, 2014

There exists a phrase that came to be when politics realized a fundamental truth: the Internet never forgets.  Some politicians, above a certain age, have had a hard time coming to grips that whatever they have said, wherever they were, once uploaded to the ‘Net, were not going to go away – forever. Words that they wish […]

Weasal Words from Sportsmen’s Act (S. 2363); Senator Kelly Ayotte complicit in yielding US Senate power to President Obama with flowery words?

by Skip July 3, 2014

From Tom’s post about our Jr. Senator Kelly Ayotte signing up for this bill, Sportsmen’s Act S. 2363, that is being sponsored by known Democrat anti-gunners Senators (some of which are also Democrat illegal alien amnesty Senators), it mentioned: The Sportsmen’s Act is, substantively, largely a “nothing-burger.” People could hunt on federal lands — unless Obama didn’t […]

This Presidential Diversion will Kill People

by Don June 6, 2014

Attempting to distract the American people from the Benghazi, VA and other scandals, President Obama committed another major blunder instead of the media coup he desired.  The illegally executed, ill-considered trade for Sgt. Bergdahl aids the enemy and will cost Americans and many others their freedom and/or their lives. According to the military Sgt. Bergdahl was […]

Do our new West Point military leaders prefer the man of the Left or the man of the [moderate] Right?

by Skip May 29, 2014

Let your ears and eyes be the judge of how our West Point cadets react:    President Obama                                      President Bush Personally, I think that Obama despises the US Military; combining the natural disdain show by the New Left as our military is a sign of US might with that of the hatred of “Western colonialism” […]

Right, President Obama – how many people LOVE their political Boss?

by Skip May 23, 2014

Steve beat me to the meme that the Democrats GAVE to the Right - and of course, it was to up the visibility of the LightBringer.  Good on him as I am the pits with Photoshopping anything (I barely do Jr. High intermediate stick figures).  But really, calling him “Boss”?   I happen to like my boss – but a whole […]

Just What is it Exactly That you Do Here, Mr. President?

by Steve MacDonald November 22, 2013
Thumbnail image for Just What is it Exactly That you Do Here, Mr. President?

c/o Jim Geraghty – Morning Jolt, (NRO Email Newsletter) in which he suggests that Obama’s not that into his own signature healthcare plan. In it he also linked to this video of Obama talking to the Bob’s from ‘Office Space.’  It’s funny, but also take note of the things the President says, all of which […]

Democrats Shut Down Government to Protect Obamacare Unfairness

by Don October 8, 2013

The government is closed, but Obamacare is open.  President Obama correctly said that defunding Obamacare wouldn’t stop it, so why is the government shut down? House Republicans funded all the government except for two minor (disputed) Obamacare related items providing fairness to individuals, small businesses and taxpayers.  Democrats shut down the government rather than compromise.

Scandals, Schmandals – Time For Obama’s ELEVENTH Royal Command Performance!

by Mike May 18, 2013

Give him his due – not only does Obama try to distract us from his never-ending scandals with a combination of lies, showmanship, and greater scandals, but he also goes to great lengths to distract himself and his friends with top-notch entertainment at the White House! In our prior article, we described the prerogatives of […]

Royal Command Performance – Only The Best For Obama!

by Mike April 11, 2013

The term “Royal Command Performance” has been around for centuries, as monarchs exercised their divine right to command performances at their palaces by the best entertainers and of the latest plays. During the last 100 years, the British Royal Variety Performance, often known by its older name, has been a staple of the Christmas season, […]

Gun Control is about Obama’s Political Agenda, not Saving Lives

by Don February 12, 2013

President Obama says, “If it only saves one life….” Then he promotes gun restrictions that will kill more law abiding Americans than they save. If it were really his goal, President Obama could do many things that actually save lives. Closing the border and removing the incentives for people to come or stay here illegally […]

Clinton a “Finest” Secretary of State? Ridiculous!!

by Don February 7, 2013

President Obama says Secretary Clinton has been one of our country’s finest Secretaries of State.  Huh??  Is the President now smoking something other than cigarettes? Is the world safer, more peaceful, are threats reduced, is our country more respected around the world, are people more free than they were when Hillary took over as Secretary […]

Biden, “If it only saves one life.” Except, don’t do what works ….

by Don February 1, 2013

  Newsflash Atlanta….  Yesterday a youth intent on shooting fellow students at Atlanta’s Price Middle School was stopped by the school’s “Gun Free Zone” sign.  Well, not really, that is just the fantasy that liberals want people to believe. Actually after wounding multiple people, the shooter was stopped, not by the “Gun Free Zone” sign, but […]

Response to Nancy Parsons Questions about Objections to Obama’s Gun Control Policies

by Don January 23, 2013

Perhaps other people wonder about the questions in Nancy Parson’s letter of January 18, 2013 in the Laconia Daily Sun.  (See:  http://issuu.com/dailysun/docs/lds1-18-13 ) My beliefs are based on the following: True safety requires consideration of reality not wishes. If anyone is hurt during a crime, it should be the criminal not the intended victim.  Criminals will ignore […]

Thank Obama and Democrats for Tax Increases

by Don January 10, 2013

Democrats have told so many lies about taxes and the fiscal cliff that they apparently felt compelled to extend, but not further reduce, the Bush tax cuts on incomes below $400,000.    After ten years of claiming that the Bush tax cuts were only for the rich (a lie), that they caused the deficit crisis […]

Where is Obama’s Help for Sandy Victims?

by Don November 5, 2012

President Obama flew to New Jersey for a photo op and to make lots of promises before flying on to campaign events.  Apparently he has forgotten about Sandy and the hurting Americans. A week later, hundreds of thousands of people in New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut are without power, without running water, without food, […]

GrokTV: NRA President David Keene at the Londonderry Fish & Game – Part 3

Once the stump speeches by Ovide Lamontagne, Frank Guinta, and Charlie Bass were over, David Keene, President of the NRA, again took up the mic to give his closing remarks to the membership.  Drew Beamer, NH NRA Field Campaign Representative, then closed out the brief program, asking the assembled NRA members to take action.  Given […]

VP Biden shows Obama’s Disregard for our Country

by Don October 17, 2012

One wonders how much the American people must suffer or how great a disaster must happen to our country before Vice-President Biden will discuss these topics seriously.  In Thursday’s debate Vice President Biden acted more like a candidate for class clown than a man concerned about his country.  One wonders, if 23 million Americans who […]

Attempt to Cover up Naive, Dangerous, Failed Obama Policies

by Don October 13, 2012

For weeks President Obama and his top aides lied to us, claiming the events in the Middle East on 9-11 were caused by a movie that few people even knew about.   Those claims were attempts to cover up President Obama’s failed Middle East policies that strengthen terrorists, comfort our enemies, and are bringing the […]

President Obama’s War on the Rich

by Don September 20, 2012

I was very pleased to read in Paul Bonneville’s letter of September 5 in the Laconia Daily Sun (and Sept 6 in The Citizen of Laconia) that he is doing better now than four years ago, so few people are doing better.  He talks about the stock market “recovery”, of course that only helps if […]

Indeed – the next President will inherit a mess

by Skip September 18, 2012

A loyal reader sent this in: Obama has made a habit of blaming everything that has gone wrong during his Administration on his immediate predecessor. This will be fun to watch for a little bit, as we all circle and swirl around the drain if Obama get re-elected… (H/T: Dan)

NH Democrats Silent On Obama Death Toll

by Steve MacDonald September 12, 2012

Character matters.  Democrats have none.  For all their mewling about body counts, we’ve heard next to nothing (actually, nothing) about the brave men and women who have been wounded or killed fighting the Democrat parties rhetorical ‘Good War’ over in Afghanistan, since Obama has been in charge. Under former President George W. Bush, 575 American […]

Obama’s War on American Citizens

by Don June 27, 2012

Monday the Obama administration continued its war against the American people and the rule of law.  In a petulant response to the Supreme Court’s audacity for not declaring a key portion of the Arizona (SB 1070) Immigration Law unconstitutional, the Obama administration ordered its immigration authorities not to accept inquiries about a person’s immigration status […]

Concord Monitor says more food stamps needed, assumes Obama re-election

by Don April 30, 2012

If President Obama is re-elected, as the April 25, 2012 Concord Monitor editorial “Cutting food stamps to feed the rich” apparently assumes, then it is right, the Ryan budget won’t provide all the food stamps, unemployment, and other assistance that will be needed. The Concord Monitor goes on to pooh pooh the idea of “Cadillac […]

Long read regarding socialist statism and voting Democrat….

by Tim Condon April 22, 2012

I regularly get into political scrums with leftists in various venues. What follows is one where I got set off enough to pen a major lecture to a local socialist (I’ll call him “Chuck”). He was going on about what a successful President Barack Obama is, and how he truly deserves to be re-elected, and […]

Buffett Tax Distraction from Real Problems

by Don April 19, 2012

Hopefully the irrelevant Buffett tax discussion is over.  The Buffett tax neither solved nor helped solve any major problem.  Despite the hype, the Buffett Tax only annually raised about one day’s worth of borrowing, if it raised 10 times more it would still be irrelevant. The whole Buffett tax “theater” was intended to divert that […]

Has Obama lost touch with reality?

by Don April 5, 2012

Has President Obama lost touch with reality? Even for a consummate liar, President Obama’s statement that Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) was “passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress” is stunning. Obamacare was so unpopular that deals (the Louisiana Purchase, the Cornhusker Kickback, etc) were required to get enough Democrat senator support for […]

A Short Message From President Obama

by Steve MacDonald April 4, 2012

I know.  You’re tired of hearing messages from President Obama.  But this is important.  In fact, it may be the last message you will ever need to hear, because it sums up not just his entire Presidency but every talking point of the modern Democrat party.

Proud of President Obama

by Don October 4, 2011

I would have been prouder still of President Obama if he didn’t use our soldiers as political pawns. Because the Democrat controlled Senate has refused to pass a budget for more than two years, government funding is being authorized by continuing resolutions. When Republicans tried to rein in President Obama’s irresponsible spending demands, President Obama threatened a government shutdown and the withholding of salary, disability and death benefits, and other payments to our soldiers, even those in combat with dependent families.
I guess soldiers shouldn’t feel singled out since President Obama also threatened to have social security payments withheld. Apparently payments for foreign aid, bureaucrats, subsidies, bailouts, pork barrel spending, and President Obama’s travel, etc., are all higher priority to President Obama than paying our soldiers and seniors.

No Debt Ceiling Increase without Cut, Cap, and Balance

by Don July 26, 2011

Neither President Obama nor Speaker Boehner tell the full debt story. They try to scare us by saying that if the debt ceiling is not raised, our credit rating might be lowered. But President Obama’s plans to increase our debt by at least $1 trillion annually for the foreseeable future is a bigger and definite threat to our credit rating. Our already significant interest payments won’t be affordable. China and credit rating companies warn us that we are creating too much debt. It is just a matter of time before our huge, growing debt to cause our credit rating to fall.

Obama to Blame if Social Security Checks Withheld

by Don July 20, 2011

Our government funds thousands of programs that should be eliminated or severely cut because they provide little or no value to American citizens. Here are a few examples: $2.6 million to train Chinese prostitutes to drink more responsibly, promotion of rural tourism in Lebanon, $12 million to promote economic growth in Lebanon….
