  • Obamagration and our Disdainful President (He's not my president)

    The executive order, which President Obama has issued, granting amnesty to millions of individuals now residing illegally in our country, should make clear the profound disregard our president has for American voters, our constitution, and our two-party system. It might be possible to justify this action if it was addressing a national emergency of utmost urgency or clearly reflected the priorities and wishes of the American people. But neither is the case. Republicans just won a decisive election, giving them control of both houses of congress, interpreted uniformly as a repudiation of the president and his agenda. To totally disregard...

    For responding to a president who defies his constitutional limits, Congress is said to possess four powers: to impeach, to defund, to investigate, and to withhold confirmation of nominees. But there is a fifth recourse, which the new Republican Congress might consider in view of President Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal immigrants: the power to censure. In fact, censure could work in tandem with Congress’s other powers, helping the legislature make the moral case for responding to the president’s lawlessness. Presidential censure is a rare occurrence. Most notably, in 1834, the Whig-controlled Senate censured President Andrew Jackson, a Democrat, for...

    Whether it’s church liberals or political liberals, they have at least one thing in common—they often speak one way, but walk in the opposite direction. A prime example of that character trait comes from “Gruber-gate,” namely the recent scandal about remarks of Jonathan Gruber, a key architect of Obamacare. Mr. Gruber has stated that the bill’s passage was contingent on exploiting the “stupidity” of the American voter. As with Mr. Gruber, most liberals—whether they’re from mainline denominations or liberal evangelical churches, or from the political sphere—believe that the average American is stupid. As they view their world through that prism,...

    President Barack Obama is on the verge of announcing significant executive actions that could affect at least a portion of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants residing in the United States. As is often the case these days, rumors and pieces of the plan have floated through the media for a couple weeks now, and Obama appears ready to announce the full details Thursday night in an address to the nation. The decision to act unilaterally without going through Congress is not only controversial, but could it also be a change in direction for the Obama administration? Obama doesn’t see...

    I understand we've turned the page to the next controversy -- Obama's unconstitutional immigration pander -- but I'd like to dwell a little longer on the previous travesty. Obama administration health-care consultant Jonathan Gruber was discovered to have boasted that Obamacare was designed to exploit the "stupidity" of American voters and elude honest accounting by hiding both its cost and the taxes necessary to pay for it. When asked about this in Brisbane, Australia, the president rolled his eyes at the controversy. "I just heard about this," Obama said. "... The fact that some adviser who never worked on our...

    "When the facts change, I change my mind," economist John Maynard Keynes said when charged with inconsistency. "What do you do, sir?" As President Obama threatens to stretch his power to faithfully execute the law to a breaking point by effectively legalizing some 5 million illegal immigrants, perhaps I owe readers an explanation of my own changes of mind on immigration. I tended to support the so-called comprehensive immigration bills passed by the Senate in 2006 and then rejected by the Senate in 2007, due to missteps by new Majority Leader Harry Reid. But I think the similar bill the...

    Jonathan Gruber set off a firestorm of controversy, at least in the conservative media, with the recent revelation of his comments about the "stupidity of the American people," which allowed the Affordable Care Act to be passed. In essence, he admitted that the bill was written in a way that would allow its purveyors to characterize it as the cure-all and salvation for a health care system that was in trouble, with no danger of their deception being discovered by a populace that is trusting and naive. He obviously never intended for his comments to make it into the public...

    "How do you like the Journal's war?" So boasted the headline of William Randolph Hearst's New York flagship that week in 1898 that the United States declared war on Spain. While Hearst's Journal, in a circulation battle with Joe Pulitzer's World, was a warmongering sheet, it did not start the war. Yet the headline comes to mind reading the Wall Street Journal, whose editorial pages seem to have concluded that on Nov. 4 America voted for new wars in the Middle East, and beyond. On Nov. 13, the Journal's op-ed page was given over to Mark Dubowitz and Reuel Marc...

Beyond concerns over the constitutionality of a president deciding which laws to uphold and which to ignore in violation of his oath to "faithfully execute" laws passed by Congress, is the effect these unauthorized immigrants will have on what we know as America.

The United States will reduce its carbon emissions substantially over the next 11 years. China will do absolutely nothing but hope that its emissions decline after 2030.

Like lemmings in a staged dive off a cliff, "historic" became the media's rallying cry. There is nothing historic about the deal. In fact, news reports from November 2012...

    Everyone finds a lesson in the Republican midterm tsunami. One message was that so-called comprehensive immigration reform and broad amnesty have little national public support. Polls have long shown that, but so do last week's election results. Candidates in swing states who promised amnesties got no edge from such opportunistic posturing. Candidates who pandered to identity groups and played the ethnic card lost in most cases. Voters in liberal Oregon overwhelmingly rejected driver's licenses for undocumented immigrants. In reaction, President Obama sulked, threatening to quickly push through an unpopular amnesty by executive order. Obama apparently knows that he enjoys neither...

The one issue on which all Republicans agreed, and all ran, was the rejection of Obama. And by fleeing from him, some even refusing to admit they voted for him, Democrats, too, were conceding that this election was about Obama, and that they were not to blame for his failures. Yet, though this was a referendum on Obama and his policies, and though both were repudiated, some pundits are claiming that America...

    Some observations on the election: (1) This was a wave, folks. It will be a benchmark for judging waves, for either party, for years. (2) In seriously contested races, Republican candidates were generally younger, more vigorous, more sunny and optimistic than Democrats. The contrast was sharpest in Colorado and Iowa, which voted twice for President Obama. Cory Gardner and Joni Ernst seemed to be looking forward to the future. Their opponents grimly championed the stale causes of feminists and trial lawyers of the past. Democrats see themselves as the party of the future. But their policies are antique. The federal...

    President Obama hardly had the golden touch in the few marquee political contests he got involved in ahead of the 2014 midterms. Facing tough political headwinds, the president played a do-no-harm strategy, mostly sticking to events with Democratic governors in seemingly safe states. It turns out that many of those contests weren’t so safe after all. President Obama saw the Democratic gubernatorial candidates in Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Wisconsin and his home-state Illinois lose after personally stumping for them in the waning moments before Election Day.

    Before the election results are in, and keeping in mind that there may be some unpleasant surprises for one party or the other -- or both -- it's possible to assess how the Democratic Party has fared under the leadership of President Obama. To summarize the verdict: not so well. By one metric it has done very badly indeed. When Obama took the oath of office in January 2009, there were 257 Democrats in the House of Representatives. Going into this election there are 201 (including two vacant Democratic seats). Psephologists universally agree Democrats will suffer a net loss of...

    Sherlock Holmes famously solved a mystery by noticing the dog that didn't bark in the night.

Contrary to the disparagement of some liberal pundits, this election is not about nothing. But is not about certain, specific things they might like to hear. President Obama recently said that Democrats in serious Senate and House contests this year back "every one" of his programs. But you hear very little about those programs in their ads.

    In the late 1960s through the 1970s, there was a panic that the Earth’s population, if not controlled, would lead to mass food shortages, water shortages, death, wars and the end of civilization as it existed. But much like the “global cooling” movement during the same period, it was proven to be horribly, horribly wrong. The book “The Population Bomb,” published in 1968, warned that by the 1980s there would be massive upheaval and starvation because of overpopulation. The 80s came and went, and even though the Earth’s population has nearly doubled, from 4 billion in 1974 to 7 billion...

While it appears the Ebola threat may be receding here at home, the longtime Democratic political fixer he chose to oversee the government's handling of a deadly disease is an outrageous example of the kind of people he has put into key positions in his administration. This was a high-level job for a prominent, experienced take-charge, medical expert with both administrative and executive credentials. But the president chose...

    With the inept Republicans not addressing anything of importance to strengthen their message to the American public to vote for them in November, a sudden result of the President's incompetence has surfaced.EBOLA on American shores!Even the lame stream media are reporting this.The sheeple who are usually more concerned about what's happening with Jay Z and Beyoncé have heard about this.Are they worried, we shall see in November.The sheeple usually vote with their pocketbooks, or skin color, I think this election, the sheeple may just vote for their and their families survival.Thank you President 0b0la!

    I know it is hard to believe, but I think after six years that President Obama has finally nailed something. He has this thing going on in Iraq and Syria right and he is leading this country in the correct direction. First, he is right in saying that they are not really Islamists. After all, our President obviously is very knowledgeable about the history of the Muslim religion. He probably knows more about it than any of our scholars because Obama has in depth knowledge of these matters. These people could not be acting in the name of Islam or...

    Honolulu, Hawaii, city officials have ended a plan to rename a beach after President Obama, who was born and grew up there. Two Honolulu City Council members proposed renaming Sandy Beach Park after President Obama; however, residents strongly came out against the proposal. From the AP: The beach is a popular [sic] for bodysurfing on Oahu’s east side. It was a favorite for the president as he grew up. He bodysurfed there while on vacation during his 2008 campaign. Martin says in a statement that he heard historic and cultural sensitivity concerns from the community about the name change. He...

    The government of Mexico is paying to help its citizens who are living illegally in the United States avoid deportation. According to a report from National Public Radio, the Mexican government through its 50 consulates around the United States has been helping to fund low-income illegal immigrants to apply for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA — which shields illegal immigrants from deportation and allows them to work in the U.S. NPR’s report details the story of Tania Guzman, an illegal immigrant who said the cost of applying for DACA worried her, but she was able...

    There are two dogs living in the White House other than the Obamas' pet dog. The first of the two dogs is the one that eats all the homework. It has been let loose across government agencies. The Internal Revenue Service had an encounter with the dog. Lois Lerner, in charge of the division accused of harassing conservative groups, suddenly had her hard drive crash. All her emails were gone. Then six other employees mysteriously had their emails vanish. All seven were relevant to the congressional probe of the IRS. The emails appear not to be on any servers. They...
  • Typical: Obama Hits GOP For Being Party of Billionaires

    resident Obama slammed Republicans in an email to supporters on Tuesday, claiming the GOP is in the ‘pocket of billionaires.’ The irony, of course, is that he then went on to attend a number of fundraisers, including one hosted by a billionaire real estate mogul named Rich Richman. Yes, really. The Daily Mail has the details: The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee fundraiser at Richman's house in Greenwich, Connecticut, cost as much as $32,400 a person, according to the White House. The other two events, held in New York and sponsored by the Democratic National Committee, cost between $1,000 and $32,400...

    Legendary GOP campaign strategist Lee Atwater was guided by a political maxim he called the Napoleonic rule: Never interfere with the enemy when it is in the process of defeating itself. Atwater, a master political infighter without peer, would be jumping up and down with glee if he had lived to see what is now happening to President Obama and his party in the 2014 midterm elections. To say the Democrats, led by Obama's many blunders, are tearing themselves apart is putting it mildly. Some of his top advisers are blowing the whistle on him. Consider what has happened in...

    The Ebola virus is not a threat, but ISIS is. That's what some of our leaders tell us. Should we believe them? Do they have a track record for truth-telling that would lend them credibility. ISIS hasn't (yet) invaded America, but Ebola has. We are bombing ISIS in Syria, but treating Ebola here as an interloper that can be controlled. There is nothing to worry about. No need to panic. Pay no attention to the disease behind the curtain. Experts are in charge and we must always trust our experts. Do you? I sure don't. Sometimes it seems the priority...

    Democrats are panicking, and rightly so. Going into the November congressional elections, voter opposition to Obama is worse than it was for George W. Bush and for Bill Clinton at their respective six-year marks, and Democrats can't unyoke themselves from him. It's not just that Gallup's latest polls show Obama's policies are unpopular but that voters are planning to make a statement to that effect in November. Since 1998, Gallup has included a question to determine whether the voters are intending to use their vote to "send a message" that they either support or oppose the sitting president. Gallup found...

    "Even opposition lawmakers who have spent the last six years fighting his every initiative have expressed deep worry for his security." So wrote the New York Times' Peter Baker in the lead paragraph of a story on the congressional hearing on the Secret Service. Baker is an excellent reporter and a good writer, and so it's useful to consider the implications of his framing of the story. And let's leave aside his hyperbole about Republicans opposition "every initiative" -- some presidential initiatives are uncontroversial and widely supported -- and look at that word "even." Contained within that word and in...

    Last week, I discussed how I believe Rush Limbaugh was right in saying that Attorney General Eric Holder's resignation is not in any way a simple bon voyage. Rather, it is a deliberate ploy to maneuver him into an even greater place of influence, possibly even the Supreme Court. The most obvious replacement on the Supreme Court is liberal-leaning Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1993 by President Bill Clinton with a 96-3 Senate vote, something she admits today would never happen because of her liberal voting record and her connection with the American...

    WASHINGTON - The painful, underperforming Obama economy remains Topic A here in the nation's capital and across the country. Pre-midterm election polls show that the voters are just as unhappy as ever over President Obama's mismanaged handling of the economic life of our nation, and Democrats are wringing their hands over expectations that it will cost them their congressional jobs on Nov. 4. It's gotten so bad that even some members of the liberal news media have become a great deal more critical of an economy that one analyst said "simply isn't as healthy as the headline numbers suggest." Even...
