  • The Part of Obama's Immigration Speech that Media is Ignoring... And it's Dangerous

    Patriot Action Network ^ | November 21, 2014 | Eric Odom
    Obama's Executive Immigration Order was a brilliant move on his part. Politically, that is. Obama needed to cater to the radical anti-border crowd, but he also needed to limit the legal challenges that would have mounted from all directions with a blanket amnesty. So what did he do? Nothing. No seriously, Obama didn't really do much of anything on the action front. He basically proclaimed that our government (his government these days) will no longer deport illegal immigrants. Obama made it sound like he was doing a lot. He made it sound like he was giving the radical amnesty groups...

    Molly Guptill Manning, with her collection of Armed Services Edition books, discovered that soldiers liked nostalgic books and those with sex scenes. Armed Services Editions created a new audience of readers back home. A decade after the Nazis’ 1933 book burnings, the U.S. War Department and the publishing industry did the opposite, printing 120 million miniature, lightweight paperbacks for U.S. troops to carry in their pockets across Europe, North Africa and the Pacific. The books were Armed Services Editions, printed by a coalition of publishers with funding from the government and shipped by the Army and Navy. The largest of...

    As bullets cracked around his head, Air Force Master Sgt. Thomas Case stayed cool and directed pinpoint airstrikes on Taliban positions less than a stone’s throw away. With two foreign fighters coming at the commander of the Army unit to which Case was assigned as a joint terminal attack controller, he shielded the officer with his body and took them down with his rifle. For his heroism fulfilling both the air and ground aspects of the JTAC’s job during a battle on July 16 and 17, 2009, Case on Thursday became just the third airman to be awarded a...

    Obama must quit his pen-palling habit with the Iranian regime's supreme leader, and make the right choice by adopting a tough stance against the Iranian regime and its allies and proxies in the region With the specter of the November 24 deadline looming on the horizon, a tough and determined position toward Iran is essential in saving the day. But President Barack Obama seems to be poised on repeating his previous mistakes in dealing with the Iranian regime. That is what his latest letter to the Iranian regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei indicates, in which he made cooperation with Iran...

Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?” to decry the unfair treatment of a current political figure. My friend did not realize that Welch’s statement was no more than bluster, and has been forever (and successfully) quoted...

    Like so many Americans, Jarrad Winter didn't pay much attention to Islam. Now, it's foremost on his mind. In an exclusive interview with Examiner.com Sunday evening, Winter, a Marine Corps veteran, single father of two boys and a computer programming specialist who runs FatwahonIslam.com, says he is now homeless because he openly criticizes Islam. It wasn't until the South Park creators were threatened by a Muslim that he felt the need to study Islam, he told Examiner. In 2010, Jesse Curtis Morton -- a Muslim convert also known as Younus Abdullah Mohammad -- plead guilty to communicating threats to South...

    Link to video For 20 years, the Russians took a survival drilling pistol kit with them into space.  Then they ran out of ammunition.  The YouTube video above does a good job of highlighting the pistol and kit.  Such an item would likely be a "collector's and curio" item in the United States, as no ammunition is available for the shotgun barrels and very few were made.   Some enterprising importer would do well to get a couple of dozen thrown into a Russian import container of rifles and shotguns.   Collectors in the United States would gobble them up!  The shotgun...

    Muslims are committing atrocities around the world, killing innocent people with abandon in the name of their holy war and while they do Jews and Christians are forbidden to pray on the Temple Mount The Palestinians never lose an opportunity or excuse to kill Jews. What is feared is a new intifada or holy war in Israel, specifically in Jerusalem, where attacks on its civilians and soldiers have been occurring. The present grievance has to do with the Temple Mount, the holiest place in Judaism, but one that was taken over by Muslims when they invaded in 638 A.D. Muslims...

    Nature of a regime that is heir to a tradition of misdirection and deception When Putin met Harper at the G-20 this week, it is said that the Russian leader insisted to the Canadian Prime Minister that there were no Russian troops in the Ukraine. Last week also saw a Moscow television station insisting they had dramatic footage proving that the MH-17 flight downed over the Ukraine last July was actually shot down by a Ukrainian fighter plane; and not by a drunken Cossack in command of a Russian SAM battery. Ah, Russia… some things just never change. Russia is...

Canada's Harper to Putin: 'I guess I'll shake your hand, but you need to get out of Ukraine' Quite the contrast from when Obama ran into him in China last week, Canada’s Stephen Harper apparently has no hesitation about letting it be known what he and his country think of Vladimir Putin’s aggression toward Ukraine: Harper spokesman Jason MacDonald told Canadian reporters Harper had been chatting with a handful of other leaders when Putin entered the room. Putin approached Harper and stuck out his hand to shake the Canadian prime minister’s, said MacDonald.

    Response to “You Americans have no idea just how good you have it with Obama” This planet will not be the same in generations to follow the Obama administration. Let’s address some of the blatant falsehoods in the article, then address some of the glaring omissions from the record. First, the most egregious claim would be that the unemployment rate has decreased. I think the most important part of this is to lay out how the unemployment rate is calculated, and it will be clear why simply referring to that number (5.8%) and saying everything is okay is so misleading....

If the APEC Conference is any guide the world leaders assembled in Australia will have little to say about the meteoric rise of Islamic State (IS) over the past six months and the threat to world peace and security Islamic State poses. Expectations were high that Islamic State would be discussed at the APEC Conference.

    The U.S. military sent a giant C-17 cargo plane to an air show in China this week as a way to strengthen its relationship with the People’s Liberation Army there, despite fears among security and policy experts that doing so puts American technology secrets in jeopardy and also risks angering an important Asia ally. The decision to send a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III to the China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition at the Zhuhai Jinwan airport starting Tuesday is fraught for a number of reasons, defense and security officials told Defense One, noting that President Barack Obama’s arrival in the...

    The American soldier is the backbone of our liberties; the rock upon which tyranny must break. Without their sacrifice, their unwavering commitment to this nation and the ideals it espouses, this republic not only would have fallen but its beacon of hope would have been extinguished long ago beneath the smoke-ridden battlefields of Lexington, Bunker Hill, or Yorktown. Tragically, despite the fact millions of Americans bask in the opportunity and affluence of their God-given rights, those procured by the unassuming few, the struggles of our veterans often goes unappreciated or unnoticed; especially by those who have the most blessings or...

I must say that, without exception, I have experienced very good and courteous care in the Atlanta facilities. The bulk of the problems appear to be in other facilities and, to his credit, McDonald – a West Point graduate and airborne vet himself – has dug down into the situation and concluded that his list of those who need to...

So in order to prevent military conflict in the coming years, China and the US have penned two deals. As the WSJ reports, "one of the...

McDonald took charge of the VA three months ago following the resignation of his predecessor, Eric Shinseki. Shinseki’s tenure at the VA lasted over five years, longer than any previous Secretary, and under his watch an enormous backlog of claims reached a peak of 900,000 in March 2013. Even as...

    Saint Michael the Archangel: "Defend us in battle" and "be our protection" against wickedness It’s Veterans Day in America, yet there are progressively fewer to venerate. Most of the World War II generation is gone and even the older Vietnam vets are reaching average life expectancy. Relatively few Americans have served in Iraq or Afghanistan, and most of them never saw battle. Yet even as explaining combat to a civilian is like describing the sky to somebody blind from birth, we “brave few,” as Shakespeare famously put it in Henry V, feel compelled to try anyway.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said November 4 that he sees nothing wrong with the Molotov-Ribbentrop non-aggression pact that the Soviet Union made with Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany just days before World War ii broke out. The Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact was a promise of non-belligerence by either party toward the other. Just a week after it was signed, Germany invaded Poland, officially igniting World War ii. “Serious research must show that those were the foreign policy methods then,” Putin said to a group of young historians in Moscow. “The Soviet Union signed a non-aggression treaty with Germany. People say: ‘Ach, that’s bad.’...

Given the apathetic/indoctrinated/dumbed-down nature of a large segment of the American electorate these days, I do not take a decisive conservative (read that as “less government”) victory as being a given. My attitude is one of...

    The Spanish government said it is concerned that terrorists could use the Ebola virus as a biological weapon against the West. A close eye is being kept on online chat rooms, where such attacks are reportedly discussed among jihadist groups. Extremists connected to the Islamic State (IS, previously ISIS) have been considering using Ebola as a weapon against the West, Spain’s State Secretary for Security, Francisco Martinez, said in an address to the parliament. Martinez stated that this type of activity serves as further proof that the internet is an “an extension of the battlefield” for the Islamic State, which...

    Dear Homeowner Associations, Liberal Fascists & other mentally incapacitated apologists.... How is the American flag a tangible threat to anyone, let anyone offensive and a breach of public decorum, when it wavers in the republic for which it was commissioned? Instead of veterans and everyday citizens tolerating your offensive ignorance and shameless hypocrisy, I suggest that you somehow find it in your nonsensical wisdom to recognize Islam - those responsible for the bloodiest terrorist attacks on American soil and despised for mass human atrocities abroad - as the most credible threat to our homeland and that of all humanity! The...

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel signed a new policy this week that requires all troops returning from West Africa be isolated on bases and not be permitted to see their families for 21 days. The new policy is tougher than Center for Disease Control guidelines. The new policy, “intended to provide a “safety valve,” was recommended by the Joint Chiefs of Staff as an assurance that the service members participating in Operation United Assistance and returning home won’t bring the Ebola virus to America. The Joint Chiefs have 15 days to provide guidance on the quarantine of service members once they...

    f you really care for our fallen heroes, then do something to thank them: love your country, put up a fight for our veterans and protect the gift of freedom. Never give up He was an unknown soldier. A warrior, who sacrificed his life for our freedom. As rightly said by General MacArthur:” However horrible the incidents of war may be, the soldier who is called upon to offer and to give his life for his country is the noblest development of mankind”. There were tears and hope and years of waiting, because he wasn’t “known but to God”.

    For those of you who do not know Gary Marbut, I can tell you about him.  He is an activist who believes in the what he is doing, and he believes in restoring limits on government power.   He is smart, dedicated, and a visionary.    I wish that we had a hundred or a thousand of him running in Arizona.  Maybe there are in the rest of the country. I know of him as a second amendment activist.   He is personally responsible for most of the reform that has been done in Montana firearms law.   He virtually created the Montana...

    On CNN, "progressive" operative Paul Begala reiterates a question asked by leftist Ed. Kilgore: The Washington Monthly blogger Ed Kilgore has asked the right question -- the one any Iowa voter should be putting to Ms. Ernst: "Since you brought it up, exactly what circumstances would justify you shooting a police officer or a soldier in the head?" If he wanted the standard political answer for these questions, it is found in the Declaration of Independence.  The actual shooting started when the British crown attempted to confiscate arms and military stores from local governments. But we do not need...
