White House Common Sense Test Is Bassackwards

The White House admits it has no hard evidence that the Syrian government launched the alleged chemical weapons attack. Instead, White House chief of staff Denis McDonough told the Associated Press “a common sense test” implicates the Syrian government. Well, no, it doesn’t. Quite the opposite, in fact. Chemical weapons attacks are signs of desperation. But Assad’s forces have recently gained the upper hand against rebels according to numerous sources. Read more →

Is Petraeus Taking Obama With Him?

Note: This is a flight of fantasy. If anything in this post is later shown to conform reality, it’s pure coincidence. Nor am I accusing Gen. Petraeus of any crime or of compromising of national security secrets. (Just enjoy it, will ya?) And then comes the lady trouble. Could It Be? Related articles Note: This is a flight of fantasy.

When The Three O’Clock Call Came, Barack Obama Froze

The fog of war is lifting from Benghazi, and what lies beneath should shame Obama’s most ardent supporters. Barack Obama choked, and Americans died. When America came under attack, Obama panicked and froze. When Americans under his direction pleaded for their lives, he was afraid to pull the trigger. Here’s the emerging picture. White House Ordered Military and CIA to Stand Down and Let Al Qaeda Kill Former Navy SEALs Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, so disgusted by the White House’s refusal to help Americans under attack, defied an order to stand down.

Is the Romney Campaign Serious About Winning?

Related articles The Romney Campaign today reminded me of the McCain Campaign of 2008. I’m pretty good at ignoring bogus, fraudulent polls like the one CNN released tonight. In that poll, CNN announced a massive 52-46 national lead for Obama. If true, the race would be all but over. CNN, of course, cooked the books on this one. Read more →

Part 2: Here Is Todd Akin’s Real Crime

Part 2 of 3 | Read Part 1 | Read Part 3 What is Todd’s real crime? He’s a damaged candidate, sure, but he is not a damaged man. He was wrong, but** he erred on the side of life**. It says something about a society and political mood where a man can be disqualified for loving life and God, but another man celebrated for enabling the slaughter of living children with surgical scissors through the base of their skulls.

Obama’s Contempt for the Rule of Law

When he identified the three branches of government as President, House, and Senate, Was Chuck Schumer confused, or did he accurately state the Obama administration’s intent to subjugate the Judicial Branch of government? It seems the White House no longer considers the Judicial Branch the equal of the Executive. In two cases—the Gulf oil drilling ban and Obamacare—the White House refuses to obey ruling from federal judges. In New Orleans, federal judge Martin Feldman found the White House in contempt for its re-imposition of oil drilling bans after his previous ruling to the contrary. Read more →

It’s 1978 All Over Again UPDATE: Thaddeus McCotter Agrees With Me

The news might seem unimportant to us in the USA: Day after day they marched, tens of thousands strong, defiant chanting demonstrators surging through the streets of Cairo, a capital unaccustomed to the shouts and echoes of dissent. The subject of their protest was the policies of Egypt’s supreme ruler, Hosni Mubarak. Some carried signs demanding his ouster. Others called for a return of long denied civil and political liberties and the enforcement of Islamic laws. Read more →

Is Obama Using SEIU to Terrorize Citizens?

Interesting. Mounting evidence suggests the White House may have been complicit in SEIU’s terrorism (as defined by U.S. Patriot Act) of a banker’s teenage son. Quit the SEIU. No decent person would belong to an organization that openly, and with the federal government’s approval, uses terrorism to get its way. Quit the DC Metro Police Force. The President is using you to promote domestic terrorism. Fight him—the real enemy. Read more →
