  • When your Government Scares you More than the Russians

    Since last summer, we’ve witnessed a firestorm of nonstop media coverage about alleged Russian meddling in our election process. Questions arose regarding targets of Russian hacking and communications. Certain outlets (incorrectly) reported that Russia went so far as to hack voting machines and/or paper ballots in battleground states. A liberal shibboleth no less impressive than Harvard Professor Laurence Tribe has been quoted by the Washington Post as stating Trump’s presidency has been “rendered illegitimate by treasonous or otherwise unlawful manipulation.” While I completely disagree with Prof. Tribe’s assertions on presidential legitimacy, I think his mention of “treasonous or otherwise unlawful...

    Appearing Monday evening on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” President Obama said: “I think the President-Elect may say one thing and do another once he’s here because the truth of the matter is it’s a big, complicated world and it doesn’t matter how smart you are, you have to have the best information possible to make the best decisions possible and my experience with our intelligence agencies is, they are not perfect, they’d be the first to acknowledge that, but they are full of extraordinarily hard working, patriotic, and knowledgeable experts and if you’re not getting their perspective – their...

    11/15/16   Obama's policy legacy lies in tatters The president's supporters have little recourse left but to shout in the streets One attempting to analyze this election might fall to the temptation to underestimate the significance of it. That person would err. This election holds broad and lasting implications for Obama's legacy and the future of America. I will outline briefly below the profound and lasting nature of the 2016 election. I will lay out Obama's most significant accomplishments and outline the prospects of those achievements lasting beyond Trump's first one hundred days.   Obama Achievement Fate of that...

    Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej, a revered and unifying figure who embodied the nation in his 70-year reign, has died aged 88. Here's the latest: • Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn is the king's appointed successor • Thousands gathered at the hospital, shouting "Long live the king!" • Civil servants are ordered to wear black clothes for one year in mourning from Friday • US President Obama described the king as a man of "grace and warmth" The announcement came in a statement from the Royal Palace read on state TV Thursday, and followed a days-long outpouring of support since the king...
  • ISIS Not Contained: Foreign Fighters Have Doubled in Syria, Iraq This Year

    Although President Obama claimed last week that ISIS has been "contained," the inconvenient truth is this: The number of foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria has more than doubled since last year to at least 27,000, a report by an intelligence consultancy said on Dec. 8, highlighting the global dimension of the conflict. The figures, compiled by the Soufan Group, indicate that efforts by countries around the world to stem the flow of foreign fighters to Iraq and Syria and blunt the appeal of violent organizations such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) appear to have...

    [VIDEO] That's it. No more "Christmas in Washington." After 33 year years and 5 administrations, the live Christmas concert has been canceled: After last year’s show, hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, TNT announced that it would no longer broadcast the Christmas special, ending a 15-year partnership with veteran producer George Stevens Jr. and his son, Michael. The Stevenses, who had just been ousted as the producers of the Kennedy Center Honors gala, said they were in search of a new broadcast partner. But a new network sponsor was never found, and according to the Stevens Co., the 2014 broadcast...

    I think CBS stands for Caress Barack’s Scrotum. Saturday’s puff piece based on the President’s Hawaii vacation pool report asks the question “why Obama loves golf, basketball and all things athletic” without actually answering it. In fact, Obama’s love of “things athletic” would make him a glutton for punishment, because he’s not very good at any of those things.

    US President Barack Obama stressed multilateralism over militarism in what was billed as a major foreign policy address an a rebuttal to an ever-louder chorus of criticism, mostly by Republicans and neo-conservatives, that his tenure has been marked by weakness and retreat. Speaking on Wednesday at the graduation ceremonies of the US Military Academy at West Point, New York - the same forum at which his predecessor, George W Bush, set forth his doctrine of military pre-emption nine months before invading Iraq - Obama insisted that the United States remains the world's "indispensable nation" but emphasized that military force should...

    MOSCOW, March 29, /ITAR-TASS/. In a telephone conversation with his US counterpart Barack Obama Russian President Vladimir Putin drew attention to the continuing rampage by extremists in Ukraine, who are committing acts of intimidation against civilians, bodies of power, and law enforcers in different parts of Ukraine and in Kiev and do so with impunity, the Kremlin’s press-service has said. In this context the Russian leader suggested considering likely steps by the international community to help stabilize the situation in Ukraine. It was agreed that Russian and US foreign ministers would discuss specific parameters of such joint work in the...

    There are some things that just beg to be written about and discussed. Chuck Schumer's idea of compromise on immigration reform is shouting loudly from the rooftops for that recognition.If you have read Political Realities for any length of time, you will know I am openly derisive of the Democrats when they start talking about how conservatives need to compromise. Their past actions have shown me how untrustworthy they are. Their idea of compromise is usually conservatives giving over everything we believe in and they give over nothing. Scoff all you want, but that's how it usually works with them....

    President Obama and his administration would like us to believe that the scandal(s) surrounding the IRS are nothing more than a fabricated witch hunt designed to cause trouble for an administration distrusted by conservatives and Fox News. He said there wasn't a "smidgen of corruption" present in the IRS' targeting of conservative groups. Yes, that's what he really said to Bill O'Reilly. He as much as blamed the scandal on the reporting done by Fox News. He claims the investigation into the matter found the IRS and the agents involved did nothing wrong in their targeting of 501(c)(4) groups. What...

    If there is one thing the Obama administration can be depended on to do, it is to do their own thing. They have a record of ignoring laws that have been passed by Congress and changing others to suit their needs and agenda. So it is with our immigration law. They have already stated they would not deport certain illegal immigrants, saying their only crime was to be brought to America when they were children. That could be debatable, given the fact that many of them have had the opportunity to do the right thing, yet chose to live here...

    If there is one thing our politicians should have learned by now, it is this. No matter what law is passed, or what its intentions are, there is always the law of consequences, unintended or not. Every law that is placed on the federal register has consequences for the American people and the country in which they live. Every rule or regulation that is written as a result of those laws is loaded with consequences. That is a fact that can not be denied. Thus it is also with ObamaCare. Many of us have said all along that ObamaCare would...

    Last night's interview of President Obama by Bill O'Reilly stuck out to me for one main reason. Obama refused to answer the questions and lied through his teeth in the process. He refused to acknowledge there was a "smidgen" of corruption present in the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS. He refused to acknowledge any failure in Benghazi. He refused to admit what was really happening with the ObamaCare website. He went so far as to say it was finally working the way it was supposed to work. That one lie is the easiest to prove. Fox News - Thousands...

    I suppose nothing less could be expected from an interview of President Obama by Fox News' Bill O'Reilly. After all, how Obama feels about Fox News is not a secret. He blames the network for publishing stories that dare question his integrity, his honesty, his entire presidency. The video below is only a 10-minute segment of the interview, but it's plain to see the tension. The two men put on a good front, but President Obama clearly had no intention of giving straight answers to the questions Bill O'Reilly asked. From ObamaCare to Benghazi to the IRS, Obama basically accused...

    I wrote earlier this week about President Obama changing the subject from ObamaCare to income inequality. We all know the man is a master at shedding the blame for his failures and pivoting to other subjects to keep the American people distracted from the disaster that is his presidency. As it turns out, he is getting a little help this week from a not so unlikely source. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and the scandal surrounding a traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge are driving a story that the media can't seem to get enough of. Every time I...

    The Dems have told the big lie on climate change so many times they actually believe the lie. Period! Last November, Obama signed an Executive Order in which he declared: "The impacts of climate change -- including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise -- are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the Nation. Just one problem, none of that is true. 2013 was the year which saw the fewest days with temps of 100 degrees...

    It would appear that Benghazi is back in the news. For some of us, it has remained in the forefront of our minds, but for many Americans, it is past history. I am sure no small amount of wonder is expressed that we are still concerned about what happened in Benghazi, some fifteenth months later. My personal concern is that four Americans were killed and no one has truly been held accountable for their deaths. Americans were fed a false narrative by the Obama administration and over the weekend, the New York Times published a 7,000 word report that attempted...

    Does anyone remember the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN [1])? It was a “coalition” of community-based organizations advocating for low-income and moderate-income families in such areas as voter corruption, fraudulent health care claims, and affordable housing. In the latter category, they supported the Community Reinvestment Act, signed into law in 1977 by Jimmy Carter (who many may recall was the second worst president in US history), urged on by Gale Cincotta of National People’s Action Network (Chicago), and which through a succession of revisions, led to the collapse of the US housing market [2]. The leftist view...

    There is one thing that is abundantly clear about President Obama. He does not like to be challenged on anything he is doing. If he sets a policy, he expects to have the final word. Thus, you can imagine how he feels about Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) and his chairmanship of the House Oversight Committee. From the time Issa took over the position when the Republicans won the House of Representatives in 2010, he has been focused on asking some very pointed questions of the Obama administration. He has been aided by none other than the Obama administration itself. Given...
