  • Hmm… Shock Claim: Obama Only Wants Military Leaders Who ‘Will Fire on U.S. Citizens’

    Dr. Jim Garrow, the author of The Pink Pagoda: One Man’s Quest to End Gendercide in China, made the following claim . ... I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed. So, who is the source? Garrow replied: “The man who told me this is...

    Vice President Biden pledged Wednesday that President Obama will bypass a reluctant Republicans in Congress and take executive action to curb gun violence, prompting a full-blown fit from conservative gun rights backers. Biden heads a White House task force set this month to release proposals in response to the Newtown shooting. He told reporters before a Wednesday meeting with gun violence victims and gun control groups that Obama will not let Republican resistance prevent action. "The president is going to act. There are executives orders, there's executive action that can be taken," Biden said. "We haven't decided what that is...
  • 64% of GOP Voters See Divide Between Public and Government As Biggest Since the American Revolution

    Rasmusssen Reports ^ | Thursday, May 12, 2011
    Republican primary voters are pretty skeptical about the nation’s political leadership. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of Likely GOP Primary Voters believe the gap between Americans who want to govern themselves and politicians who want to rule over them is now as big as it was between the American Colonies and Great Britain in the 18th century. Just 16% disagree with this sentiment, and 20% aren’t sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.) But then 84% of Republican voters trust the judgment of the American people more than that of the nation's political leaders...

    A Whiff of Revolution By Alan Caruba After a long series of taxes and arrogant acts that could not fail to anger the citizens of Boston, Massachusetts and nearby colonists affected by them, the American colonists finally picked up their guns and fired on the British coming to seize their store of munitions in Concord and Lexington. The American Revolution did not occur in a week, a month or a year. It came after a Navigation Act, a Stamp Act, and others called the Intolerable Acts that actually closed Boston Harbor in retaliation for the famous Boston Tea Party....

    Right Side News ^ | April 28, 2010 | Timothy Baldwin, J.D.
    Columnist, Alan Caruba, wrote a recent article entitled, "A Whiff of Revolution," in which he generally describes the people of the United States as being fed up and disgusted with federal politics.[1] Caruba rightly compares the actions by the federal government (particularly under Obama) to the actions by Great Britain just before the America Revolution, stating that "[i]t is the antithesis of a nation of laws, a republic." Caruba predicts that Americans will eventually take this matter of freedom back into their own hands once again: "If, between now and the midterm elections, the President and Congress pass the Cap-and-Trade...

Released in March, before the passage of the Obama administration’s health care legislation, a survey entitled “Health Care Reform—Can’t Live With It, or Without It” indicates that 92 percent of Americans give the national economy...

    Abandon the Constitution to Save it? 12. Apr, 2010  Written by: Brian Roberts Based on ideas from Cokie Roberts’ recent article found here, it is hard to draw any conclusion other than she prefers a dictatorship of the federal government to the balance of power guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.Obamacare has been signed into law. However, there are a number of other checks and balances built into the Constitution that are specifically designed to protect the states and ultimately “we the people” from unconstitutional laws. Unconstitutional laws would include any law passed by the federal legislature that was not specifically enumerated...

    I read an article by Malcom Gladwell, “How David Beats Goliath: When Underdogs Break the Rules,” some months ago and have been thinking about ever since. In it, Gladwell highlights an analysis of when Davids took on Goliaths in history. The Goliaths, the ones ten-times stronger in the fight, won the encounters over 70% of the time. But in instances when the Davids broke the rules and stuck to a strategy that played to their strengths, the Davids’ win percentage rose to almost 64%. In other words, the Davids won when they chose not to play by the assumed rules...

    There is a quiet anger boiling in America. It is the anger of millions of hard-working citizens who pay their bills, send in their income taxes, maintain their homes and repay their mortgage loans -- and see their government reward those who do not. It is the anger of small town and Middle American folks who have never been to Manhattan, who put their savings in a community bank and borrow from a local credit union, who watch Washington lawmakers and presidents of both parties hand billions in taxpayer bailouts to the reckless Wall Street titans who brought down the...

    Dems Threaten Congressional Show Trials After US Companies Leak Real Economic Damage of Obamacare Late last week several US corporations leaked how the democrat’s health care bill will kill their businesses. The radicals in Congress were not pleased that these corporations would go public with this devastating information. In response, democrats threatened to call for Congressional show trials to publicly humiliate these corporations. The Wall Street Journal reported: It’s been a banner week for Democrats: ObamaCare passed Congress in its final form on Thursday night, and the returns are already rolling in. Yesterday AT&T announced that it will be forced...

    Remember when Obama said he wanted a “national security force?” Not the national guard, but a civilian one that has not sworn to uphold the Constitution? On July 2, 2008 in a speech in Colorado Springs, Barack Obama called for a police state. Remember that first alarming glimpse of what that army might look like? Notice how much these “Hitler youth” type young men talk about health care! Obama just got his private army… …And no one seems to have noticed. It is buried in the Senate revisions to the health care bill.

    A terrible thing happened to America on Sunday, March 21, 2010. The country took its biggest step ever down a road diametrically opposed to its original intent of keeping the state small so that the individual can be free and great. Therefore, in this unprecedented crisis of values, this is what needs to be done: 1. Know and teach America's core values. We got to this point solely because over the past few generations, Americans have forgotten the values that have made America distinctive and great. Even the "Greatest Generation" failed to communicate them. In a nutshell, they are what...

    This is a government unlike anything those of us who have been around a long time and have long memories has ever seen. You may recall that when the Bush administration tried to foist yet another amnesty for illegal aliens, Americans came out in full force to ultimately defeat the bill. When Bush tried to pass legislation to reform Social Security he threw in the towel when it became evident that no one wanted it. Not so today. Despite the polls that demonstrate that the vast majority of Americans are opposed to Obamacare and despite the protests taking place in...

    House Sends Health Care Bill To Obama's Desk President to sign reforms into law; 'fixes' still require House, Senate action BREAKING WASHINGTON - After well over a year of negotiations, setbacks, and political wrangling, the House has approved President Barack Obama’s top domestic policy initiative, sending a bill to massively overhaul the nation’s health insurance system to his desk to be signed and enacted into law. The climactic chapter in a century-long quest for near universal coverage concludes with the House's 219-212 approval of a bill to extend coverage to 32 million Americans who lack it, ban insurers from denying...

    George Santayana said that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeating history. Today marks the 245 anniversary of the passing of The Stamp Act. It was repealed one year later, however the spark of the American Revolution was ignited. In this most timely hour, let us learn from our history, let us learn from the ways of the sons of liberty, let us be heartened by their example. A spark has been ignited and a new revolution is underway!

    File this under 'you never thought it would happen in America.'The Senate healthcare bill that is scheduled to be 'deemed as passed' by the House of Representatives Sunday afternoon, H.R. 3590, mandates the Internel Revenue Service as the enforcement arm of Barack Obama's dictate that all Americans be covered by health insurance.The IRS will be empowered to check every month to ensure that every American meets Obama's dictated health insurance standards.The IRS is also empowered to levy fines on those not in compliance. Under existing federal law, refusal to follow the rules of the IRS can lead to imprisonment--or worse.An...

    Lefties (Daily Kos, TPMDC, and Huffington Post) are defending against allegations that the “Slaughter Rule” proposed strategy to pass ObamaCare without a vote is unprecedented and unconstitutional. The Slaughter Rule has the support of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and is the Democrats preferred strategy to pass ObamaCare. Liberals are peddling a talking point that self-executing rules like the Slaughter Rule have been done before and it was the Republicans that used this tool in the past. The fact of the matter is that there is no precedent for the House to pass a bill without a direct...

    The Washington Examiner reports that House Democrats appear poised to adopt a rule that would pass the Senate health care bill without actually voting on it. Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) is preparing to pass the health care overhaul through the House of Representatives without a vote, as was originally reported by the National Journal’s Congress Daily. Mark Tapscott observes that such a maneuver would be the penultimate refutation of the people’s will. In the Slaughter Solution, the rule would declare that the House “deems” the Senate version of Obamacare to have been passed by the House. House members would still...

    Despite the shocking loss of a Massachusetts Senate and the governorships of New Jersey and Virginia and opinion polls consistently showing an overwhelming majority of Americans opposed to ObamaCare, progressives in the nation’s capital show no signs of backing off. They are hellbent on forcing change down the throats of Americans even if it means shredding the Constitution by using the so-called Slaughter Solution that would allow ObamaCare to pass without a vote on the legislation. President George W. Bush, vilified as he was by the left when he was in office, didn’t try to impose his will on the...
