    The country is craving a TRUE LEADER that will return absolute power & strength to America and "deep-six" this PC nonsense, especially in our foreign policy. No more "deballed" leadership now that DJT is in town. Therefore, I thought his line of the night in this debate was "Believe me...they will do what I tell them...believe me"(!) emphasis added

    Via the Examiner, count me in with John Nolte and Sean Davis in wondering why this grand humiliation is being treated as a Hillary scandal instead of a media scandal. Clinton advance aides create a rope line for the press, moving with the candidate pic.twitter.com/9S7CpVt7x4— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) July 4, 2015 Davis: It was a truly embarrassing spectacle, but not for Hillary Clinton. It was embarrassing for the press, because they willingly allow this nonsense to keep happening. It almost appears as though America’s political media are suffering from something approaching Battered Reporter Syndrome: yeah, she tied us up, but...

    The US took some hard shots on Monday in the UN Human Rights Council periodic review of its human rights record, admitting that it crossed the line and did not live up to our values in its interrogation of detainees during the George W. Bush administration. Coming on the heels of a federal investigation into Baltimore authorities handling of the police shooting of African-American Freddie Gray, the US representatives, led by Ambassador Keith Harper and State Department Acting Legal Adviser Mary McLeod, also said that it should do better in police conduct toward minorities. The UN review which also...

No firearms were involved in the explosion. Fresno Fire Department spokesman Pete Martinez said witnesses reported a ball of fire that burned multiple people.

    In an obscure corner of the federal bureaucracy, there is an office that is 990,399 cases behind. That is Washingtons backlog of backlogs a queue of waiting Americans larger than the populations of six different states. It is bigger even than the infamous backups at Veterans Affairs, where 526,000 people are waiting in line, and the patent office, where 606,000 applications are pending. All of these people are waiting on a single office at the Social Security Administration. Social Security is best-known for sending benefits to seniors. But it also pays out disability benefits to people who cant work...
  • Biden Stole 'Into The Gates Of Hell' Line From John McCain

    Speaking at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard on Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden said America will follow the terrorists who murdered the two American Journalists "to the gates of hell." If that phrase elicits feelings of dj vu that's because John McCain used it about Osama Bin Laden during the 2008 primary season and was repeatedly slammed by future president Obama for it in his election stump speeches. Biden spoke with passion as he spoke about the ISIS terrorists: The American people are so much stronger, so much more resolved than any enemy can fully understand. As a nation, we're united....

    Submitted by David Stockman's Contra Corner Seymour Hershs Blockbuster: Obama On The Red Line And On The Rat Line Read Seymour Hershs devastating account of Obamas Red Lines and Rat Lines and weep for the Republic. It is no more. For the first time in a half-century American voters actually elected the peace candidate in 2008 and sent Obama to the White House to end the interventionist foreign policy that had lead to disaster in Iraq, and, implicitly, to wind down the vast war machine that had been left over from the Cold War. The latter had been converted by...

    JERUSALEM (AP) Israel's prime minister headed to Washington on Sunday for a high-stakes meeting with President Barack Obama about U.S.-led Mideast peace efforts, vowing to maintain a tough line in the face of heavy international pressure to begin making concessions to the Palestinians. Benjamin Netanyahu's defiant tone set the stage for what could be a difficult meeting Monday with Obama. But with the clock ticking toward an April target date for a preliminary agreement, the Israeli leader could soon be forced to begin laying out a clearer vision for a future peace deal with the Palestinians. Shortly before takeoff,...

    When MSNBC's Thomas Roberts announced the new line of Duck Commander guns on January 3rd, he was joined by Len Everett of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. Everett claimed Phil Robertson, of Duck Dynasty fame, made his controversial comments to sell guns to conservative, middle-aged, white males and criticized the Robertson family for selling the kinds of guns used in mass shootings. Roberts used leading questions to guide Everett in making these points throughout the segment. For example, Roberts introduced Everett by pointing out that the new line of guns includes a "semi-automatic pistol" and "two semi-automatic rifles." Moreover,...

    Today while speaking to the press in Sweden about Syria, President Obama claimed to have never uttered the words red line. Heres what he said: First of all, I didnt set a red line, said Obama. The world set a red line. Just a reminder. He did say it. Heres what President Obama said August 20th: We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized, the president said. That would change...

    The heart-wrenching photographs taken in the moments after the Boston Marathon bombings show the blue-and-yellow jackets of volunteers, police officers, fire fighters, emergency medical technicians, even a three-foot-high blue M&M. Conspicuously absent are any clerical collars or images of pastoral care. --SNIP-- When the priests at St. Clement's, three blocks away, heard the explosions, they gathered sacramental oils and hurried to the scene in hopes of anointing the injured and, if necessary, administering last rites, the final of seven Catholic sacraments. But the priests, who belong to the order Oblates of the Virgin Mary, weren't allowed at the scene. The...

    US Secretary of State John Kerry again warned Wednesday that time was slipping away to reach a Middle East peace deal, and for the first time said there may only be a year or two left. Appearing before US lawmakers for the first time since becoming America's top diplomat in February, Kerry said his three trips to the region already were proof of his commitment to try to find a way to resume peace talks, AFP reported. The Obama administration is "trying to find out what is possible," Kerry told the House foreign affairs committee, as he laid out the...

    American cities have never experienced modern total war, leaving Americans to imagine the impacts of catastrophic warfare on their urban centers. This article examines post-1945depictions of the death of U.S. cities in films, short stories, and novels from the thriller, future war, and science fiction genres since 1945. Cities are conspicuous by their absence from fictions of future war and its impacts, often disappearing offstage to allow the plot to follow survivors in small-town and rural settings. This pattern spans depictions of the immediate days after atomic bombing (or a surrogate disaster such as a stray meteor or plague) and...

    As Tea Party Activists must know by now, the House passed line item veto powers for president Obama. SEE: US House votes to give Obama limited line-item veto Thursday February 9, 2012 “WASHINGTON(Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives voted to give President Barack Obama a limited line-item veto authority on Wednesday in a rare display of bipartisanship on bitterly divisive spending and budget issues.” CLICK HERE for the roll call vote. I never though Paul Ryan would sell out to the Washington Establishment and approve granting this blackmailing power to the President, and ignore our Constitution’s written procedure regarding...

    Who has really gone "well over the line," Rick Santorum or Barack Obama? Former White House Press Secretary and current campaign adviser Robert Gibbs is alleging that GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum went "well over the line" when he questioned Obama's Christian values. Gibbs told ABC's "This Week" that it's time to get rid of this mindset in our politics that, if we disagree, we have to question character and faith." See here. If Robert Gibbs really believes that Rick Santorum went "well over the line" by merely questioning Obama's so-called "Christian virtues," he must then concede that Barack Obama...
