  • Illegal Alien Child Molester Caught... for the Fourth Time

    We are becoming accustomed to the liberal way of jurisprudence. Arrest, convict, release, and repeat. For some reason, we have lost the idea of justice and punishment. So, when we hear that a man, who has been convicted of repeated sexual assault, is caught reentering the country, it should hardly rate as news. But, it should cause us to ask how we stop this repeat offender. It seems that the criminal is no longer in fear of justice. Breitbart reports A previously convicted child molester who has been deported at least three times is once again in federal custody after...

    In an unprecedented move, 200 retired US generals, admirals and other political officials just took a stand against the unconstitutional policies of the Obama administration concerning his nuke deal with Islamic Iran. A letter was received by Congress from 200 signatories, who served under Democratic and Republican administrations. The Washington Post reports: The letter is the latest in a blizzard of missives petitioning Congress either to support or oppose the agreement with Iran, which would lift sanctions if Iran pared back its nuclear program. Letters have come from ad hoc groupings of rabbis, nuclear scientists, arms-control and nonproliferation experts —...

    A few days ago, we reported that Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland, a green beret, was being kicked out of the Army because he stood up for an Afghan rape victim, a 12-year-old boy. State Department documents point the finger at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for a directive that ordered US troops to avoid criticizing certain "taboo" aspects of Afghan culture. One of those aspects is pedophilia. The boy was raped by an Afghan police commander. Yes, this is one of those people we are stupidly training over there, who when our soldiers turn their backs, they are...

    Congress has created a monster that is growing more dangerous to the U.S. economy, the Constitution, and the liberties of the American people with every passing day. Now, some lawmakers want to start reining in the regulatory monster with the REINS Act, if only slightly, by taking back some authorities over lawmaking that they were never authorized to give away to executive branch bureaucracies in the first place. But Obama, who last year threatened to rule America by decree with his “pen and phone” if Congress would not submit to his demands, wants none of it, and the White House...

    TPA, TPP, TTIP — and now TiSA! Much of the debate over current trade policy and the proposed global governance structures that would emanate from it have revolved around this ever-increasing list of alphabet-soup measures. Although not nearly as well-known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) should not be overlooked. Equally potent and potentially even more debilitating to our nation’s independence and domestic economy than the TPP and TTIP, the proposed TiSA currently being negotiated would be imposed on the entire world, not just a particular region....

    It was a day no one thought they would be alive to see. After a half century of frosty relations between the United States and Cuba, the U.S. Embassy re-opened in Havana on Friday. Part of Barack Obama’s “make peace with everyone” tour, the move is the most visible example of the president’s pursuit of normalized relations with our southern neighbor. And, though probably not as ill-conceived as his nuclear deal with Iran, this move promises to be a costly mistake. Senator Bob Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, was among the harshest critics on the historic day. “This is a...

We are told that the shooter was empowered by what had happened to “gentle giant” Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in New York City. A few facts first: 1. Bassem al-Masri, a Palestinian terrorist who had been to the White House as an advisor, has taken control of the local mobs. 2. In New York, the protests-those that have been violent-have been...

    Is it philosophically wise to dwell upon the morality of government? Are we frivolous and diverted from more serious concerns? Should we be reading poetry, watching TV, playing golf or listening to Mozart? A discussion of the morality of government is more than an intellectual exercise. It has to do with understanding force and raw political power hidden behind the cleverest of disguises. Our perception of government morality directly relates to our quality of life and whether or not we pass human liberty to our heirs. There can be no perception of reality without inquiry into the nature of political...

    I thought about a different title for this commentary because many websites will not post it because it has the "S" word in the title, but sodomy is a Biblical word. I am not ashamed to call it what the Bible calls it. The skin is off of the onion. We now know what it is that the homosexuals were after: they wanted "dignity." Anthony Kennedy used the term "dignity" throughout his entire written decision on sodomy-based "marriage." I went to the dictionary because, until recently, words had meaning. DIGNITY—"A way of appearing or behaving that suggests seriousness and self-control;...

    Housing regulations aimed at diversifying wealthy neighborhoods, which some are calling executive overreach for the purpose of establishing a utopia, are expected to be released by the Obama administration this month. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will release the rules with the aim of ending segregation in neighborhoods around the country, The Hill is reporting. HUD plans to offer grant money to communities willing to build affordable housing within affluent neighborhoods. On the flip side, the federal agency will also give money to poorer neighborhoods to improve those communities through better schools, parks, libraries and grocery stores....

    The Washington Times has released a story that ties Obama to a plan to continue support to the Muslim Brotherhood. The document known as Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11, outlines Obama’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood, claiming they are more moderate than Al Qaeda or ISIS. That may be true but Mark David Chapman is less violent than Charley Manson, but they are both still murderers. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt have all added the Muslim Brotherhood to their terror lists. Obama by comparison, removed them from ours. The United Arab Emirates took it a step further...

    The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expected to present a new proposal that would extend subsidies to low-income Americans who want to get online. The five-member commission, which is directed by three Democrats and two Republicans, intends to expand the current “Lifeline” program, which subsidizes income-eligible residents’ cellphone bills, to also encompass billing for Internet service. The plan dovetails philosophically with the FCC’s recent net neutrality proposal, which regards the Internet not as a luxury but as a necessity. By elevating it to a utility, the commission can argue that low-income Americans who can’t afford to pay for Internet access...

    As the World Trade Organization delivers another blow against U.S. sovereignty, President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is poised to add more international judicial attacks against American liberty and independence. The May 18 ruling by a WTO appellate tribunal declaring a U.S. federal law illegal should have caused giant shock waves across America and should have sunk any hopes of congressional passage of the TPP, which, twinned with the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), forms the centerpiece of the ObamaTrade globalist agenda. Both the TPP and the TTIP would create international courts that could (and would) override American federal, state,...

The West seemed perfectly willing to support the rebellion against Russian backed Assad, but as soon as those supposedly “moderate” rebels formed ISIS, they turned against them (according to the media at least). But according to a recently declassified document, the US government knew more than they were letting on (gasp) in regards to the formation of ISIS. The seven page document, which was dated August 12th 2012, was attained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit. It reveals that...

Since there are no greater issues facing the country right now, the Obama-appointed Task Force on 21st Century Policing recommends severing ties between Homeland Security and local law enforcement authorities. “The U.S. Department of Homeland Security should terminate the use of state and local criminal justice system…to enforce civil immigration laws against civil and nonserious criminal offenders,” says the task force report.

    Discussing what could be done to help the plight of the poor last week, President Obama again gave Americans a look at how he thinks about concepts like success and wealth. Calling the wealthy “society’s lottery winners,” Obama argued that it was incumbent on government to steal from these lucky few so that the unlucky many could have a better life. It is not surprising, of course, that he would say such a thing. His entire administration has been built on the notion that “you didn’t build that.” People are where they are in life not because of the choices...

    Behind the orchestrated riots that were allowed to strike Baltimore in recent weeks, and Ferguson, Missouri, before that, lies an agenda that has nothing to do with the fact that “Black Lives Matter.” As the Obama administration and more than a few race-mongers allied with the White House have already made clear, the real goal involves further chipping away at local self-government and community control over police departments — and expanding federal control over local law enforcement in its place. In between fanning the division and unrest with racialist rhetoric, Obama is also exploiting the chaos he is helping to...

This shows that the Administration’s wishful thinking about al-Qaeda isn’t over. Obama and his fellow officials seem to think if you say something enough times, it will become true. Before Benghazi, they claimed al-Qaeda was defeated and on the...

    Passing bills to find out what’s in them… that was so 2010, right? Sadly, no. Any day now, Congress is likely to release the trillion-dollar Trojan horse that is the spending bill for 2014.

    European UnionIf you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the "economic collapse", just open up your eyes and look at what is happening in Europe. The entire continent is a giant economic mess right now. Unemployment and poverty levels are setting record highs, car sales are setting record lows, and there is an ocean of bad loans and red ink everywhere you look. Over the past several years, most of the attention has been on the economic struggles of Greece, Spain and Portugal and without a doubt things continue to get even worse in those nations. But in 2014 and...

    Heritage Foundation ^ | 1/7/20014 | Alyene Senger
    Yes, Obamacare has raised premiums, caused people to lose their health coverage, raised taxes, and more. But on January 1, Obamacare started digging in for the long haul: putting down the deep roots of entitlement programs. Entitlements—like the big three of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid—are the biggest causes of America’s spending and debt crisis. And Obamacare creates a new entitlement program while expanding another. The creation of a new entitlement: Taxpayer-funded subsidies for millions of Americans Obamacare created insurance exchanges to sell and subsidize government-approved health care plans. Most of those who attain coverage through the exchanges will have...

    Oh how I wish I was president right now because if I was I would pick up a pen and immediately sign an Executive Order to round up all muslims and ship them the hell back to the cesspools of countries they came from. There, I said what many are thinking, and after last Monday when jihad once again reared its ugly head on American soil, more and more folks are starting to see the reality that muslims have NO place in the fabric of our American society. Now do I literally mean every single muslim...of course NOT because to...

    Congress is beginning its new year with a budget deal that busts right through “caps” it was supposed to have on spending. At Heritage, we want to hold Congress accountable for its tax-and-spend ways, even as Members claim there’s no room to cut. A good place to start is understanding the mountain of debt Americans are already under. Check out and share our infographic below that puts it in perspective.
  • If you like your light bulb, you can keep your light bulb

    The New American ^ | 1/33/2013 | Chip Wood
    Actually, just like Barack Obama’s promise regarding health insurance, this one’s not true either. As of Jan. 1 (Happy New Year, by the way!), the import or manufacture of 40-watt or 60-watt light bulbs is now forbidden in the United States. This follows the ban on 75-watt and 100-watt bulbs, which had already been implemented. I wish we could blame this on the current Administration, but actually this assault on our freedom of choice goes back to 2007, when Congress passed the Energy Independence and Security Act and it was signed into law by President George W. Bush. Yep, the...

    Do a Google News search for “income inequality” and it will remove any doubt that this is already the political issue of 2014. The left has been gearing up for months. The liberal Center for American Progress launched a new center devoted to the subject, and President Obama has been making it a centerpiece of his speeches. Get ready to hear about “fairness”—because some people make more money than others, and this isn’t fair. How can you sit by and watch this happen? What is the government going to do about it? It’s a popular argument because everyone—even Warren Buffett—wants...

    Town Hall ^ | December 19, 2013 | Katie Pavlich
    According to a court order obtained by Townhall, the Department of Homeland Security is enabling cartel trafficking of minors, delivering those minors to illegals living inside the United States and completing criminal transactions for illegal immigrants. The order, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on December 13, details a guilty plea from Mirtha Veronica Nava-Martinez for attempting to smuggle a 10-year-old El Salvadorean female into the United States. Nava-Martinez was being paid to smuggle the child from Matamoros to Virgina, but was caught at a Brownsville checkpoint. The order describes Nava-Martinez as a resident...
  • New Hampshire Moves Toward Nullifying NDAA

    As the National Defense Authorization Act 2014 heads to Obama’s desk as an even more draconian piece of legislation than it was previously, states have taken notice and are beginning to intensify their efforts to nullify it. Michigan was the latest to opt for full nullification after Governor Rick Snyder (R) signed bill SB0094 into law. New Hampshire has now taken a critical step toward nullification with the introduction of their bill HB1279, scheduled to be formally presented on January 8th, 2014. New Hampshire’s bill has bipartisan support among its five sponsors, and is based on the model legislation...

Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and seven other Democrats have proposed legislation that would eliminate the possibility of imposing the death penalty for a range of federal offenses, including several categories of murder and crimes against the government like treason...

And now Iran’s hard-line lawmakers…lawmakers who oppose the deal reached in Geneva and who are being fueled on by their war-mongering mullahs in response to a planned but NOT yet passed or implemented legislation by US Senators to actually add additional sanctions…have drafted a bill to increase the country’s level of uranium enrichment to 60%…a level that...
