The State of Denial: ObamaCare and the Transformation of America

What is left to say? We are now stating the obvious. As the democrat-run Senate and the GOP-lead House play a tug-of-war over shutting down the U.S. government over the funding of the unwanted ObamaCare law, Obama and the White House continue to dismiss the facts and deny ObamaCare's already damage to jobs and the […]

Are You Feeling All That Promised “Hope and Change” Yet?

How great were the first four years under Obama? Let's just say Hugo Chavez is grinning up from Hell... During the four years that marked President Barack Obama’s first term in office, the real median income of American households dropped by $2,627 and the number of people in poverty increased by approximately 6,667,000, according to […]

Syria To Be Obama’s Dumb Bell … or Something

In recent days the speculation and possible preparing for a U.S. strike on Syria over the alleged gassing of civilians has been debated. There are questions about the if/how/why/who carried out this gas attack. Being taunted in recent days by the media since the gas attack for not being serious about his vague "red line" […]

“Phony Scandals”

Last week, while on his continuing campaign trail, Obama complained about "phony scandals" keeping republicans in the U.S. Congress too busy to pass his economy-wrecking socialist agenda. Shortly after the unconscionable gaffe crossed the live airwaves a large percentage of Americans took a collective gasp. Exactly what is phony about the Obama administration's scandals, and […]

“Obama’s Castro-like speech, both in substance and length, bombs…”

As usual we must swim across the deep blue pond to get the honest reviews/reporting from the UK's non-Obama appeasing media. Here is the Telegraph's Nile Gardiner on Obama's long and inane speech from yesterday afternoon at Knox College, Illinois... Today’s speech at Knox College, Illinois, was supposed to be the president’s come-back moment, the […]

“Silent No More!”

The father of Sen. Ted Cruz, Rafael Cruz, recalls "Hope and Change" in Cuba and finds a very striking similarity between Obama and Castro... More on Mr. Cruz's speech at The Blaze.

An Important Question on This Year’s “Independence Day”…

PJM's Roger L Simon makes a very good observation, and asks an important question: "Is America in a Pre-Revolutionary State this July 4th?" As we approach July 4, 2013, is America in a pre-revolutionary state? Are we headed for a Tahrir Square of our own with the attendant mammoth social turmoil, possibly even violence. Could […]

Malfeasance: Subverting Democracy and The Republic from Within

Conservative radio host Michael Savage has been warning for years about "The Enemy Within". It is like a cancer ... by the time you actually see it and feel it you just might be in the end stage and dying... Obama and his team have subverted the government they pledged to serve. Truth is the […]

“Berlin hadn’t seen bombing like this since … the spring of 1945″

Yesterday I mentioned the glass security enclosure Obama used in his Berlin speech was being symbolic of the bubble he has been living in the last several years (probably his entire life). The fact is, Obama was in a display case for the world to see, floundering on the bottom of a slowly boiling fish […]

“Ich Bin Ein Weenie” … The Flop Sweat of a Failed Hot Dog Narcissist

Ich bin ein schreckliche lautsprecher. Obama was literally on display in the bubble he lives in, as his security had him behind thick glass that looked much like a fish aquarium. He removed his suit jacket as sweat began soaking his face to reveal this emperor really has no clothes. The absence of a U.S. […]

The Dystopian Presidency

“Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted.” “...most men and women will grow up to love their servitude and will never dream of revolution.” “We are not our own any more than what we possess is our own. We did not make ourselves, we cannot be supreme over ourselves. […]

It’s About To Blow: “To be a Fox journalist is a high honor, not a high crime” – UPDATED

It it became vocally quite clear in yesterday's horribly clumsy and droning hour-long speech by Obama that he and his administration are running on fumes now ... which is even more dangerous than a full tank. BOOM! The PJ Tatler is reporting that Eric Holder lied under oath to Congress... During friendly questioning from Rep. […]

“In the morning, those who have engaged in whorish behavior … are somehow astonished by a lack of respect”

Clark Whelton writes in "City Journal" about Obama's "Death by Media"... Through two presidential campaigns and Obama’s first term, mainstream editors, editorial writers, and journalists served as de facto auxiliaries for the White House press office. Certain that they were serving a noble cause, they soft-pedaled bad news about the economy and ignored or played […]

Where There’s Smoke: White House and IRS Employees Union Collusion Against Conservative Groups

BREAKING: "Top IRS official will invoke Fifth Amendment" - Lois Lerner Not so fast on that plausible deniability for Obama, especially when he met with the Treasury Department to discuss how to present the IRS story before the press and the nation. Jeffrey Lord @ The American Spectator has some interesting finds on the White House […]

Straight-Up Fascism: The IRS Scandal Timeline in a Spreadsheet

Damn, he's good! Doug Ross has done it again by laying-out in a timeline format yet another Obama administration scandal. (He did this with Benghazi a few weeks ago as well.) Doug Ross @ Journal (spreadsheet at the link): Reading this timeline, I have come to three conclusions: 1. Steve Miller lied to Congress 2. […]
