Will Washington’s Failures Lead To Second American Revolution?

7/30/2010 – Ernest S. Christian & Gart A Robbins –
The Internet is a large-scale version of the “Committees of Correspondence” that led to the first American Revolution — and with Washington’s failings now so obvious and awful, it may lead to another.

People are asking, “Is the government doing us more harm than good? Should we change what it does and the way it does it?”

Pruning the power of government begins with the imperial presidency. Continue Reading »

It’s About Our Poverty Stupid!

7/25/2010 – Al Boese –
Our poverty and debt burden is wearing us down, our confidence is waning and we see no path out of the morass. Individuals and businesses are faced with unprecedented uncertainty. We are the deer in the headlights; just standing there, stationary and static in our behavior. As we survey the landscape, we view crumbling infrastructure, businesses are choosing not to invest in growth, sitting on $1.8 trillion of cash, some of our neighbors’ houses are either foreclosed or in a short sale because they are under- or completely unemployed, or recklessly indebted. Small businesses are not able to obtain or maintain working capital credit lines and they are uncertain of the next regulatory volley from the government, so they refuse to hire or grow. Furthermore the elephant in the room, porous borders and illegal immigrants, are scandalously and recklessly ignored or politicized. Continue Reading »

The Democrats’ War on the West

7/23/2010 – Michelle Malkin –
“Why do they hate us?” It’s a burning question on the minds of border-dwelling taxpayers, small-business owners, farmers, and Rocky Mountain oil and gas industry workers suffering under punitive Democrat policies. Eighteen months into the Barack Obama administration, the war on the American West is in full swing.

The first battlefront: immigration. On Wednesday, Senate Democrats rejected a GOP amendment banning the use of federal funds to participate in any litigation against the new Arizona immigration enforcement law. Continue Reading »

America’s Fast Track to the Third World

7/21/2010 – Dan Gorski –
The Department of Defense has sounded an alarm about our access to a strategically vital group of metals called the rare earth elements. A report on the problem prepared by the GAO is not pretty. It concludes that the Chinese now control the production, processing, and manufacture of final products of these vital metals and now own the patents for many of these processes. Continue Reading »

Oil Spill Timeline Video Highlights Obama’s Incompetence

Stupid in Chief7/15/2010 – B. Chrysostom –

A new video produced by RightChange.com highlights the reckless incompetence of Obama’s lack of leadership and effective response to the BP oil spill disaster. Using images, video clips, and information about Obama’s activities in the 70 days since the BP Deepwater Horizon rig exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico. The video timeline is a powerful condemnation of Obama’s inability to act as President, deal with reality, and help with this massive crisis.

The video correctly blames Obama for not being ready to lead and lacking the necessary experience and ability to lead. It concludes with a call to action:

We need real leadership for America.

Help us elect and support new leadership this November.

Here’s part of the devastating timeline the video documents:

Day 1: The BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig explodes, killing 11 workers.

Day 3: The Dutch government offered the world’s most advanced oil skimming technology. Citing the Jones Act, “He [Obama] says… No.” …to protect his union buddies. Continue Reading »

Obama To Eliminate 40 Percent of US Nuclear Weapons

Suicidal in Chief Obama7/13/2010 – B. Chrysostom –

A government report released today reveals that the Obama administration plans to drastically cut America’s nuclear arsenal by up to 40%. These massive reductions in the US nuclear stockpiles are to be implemented by the year 2021.

The news has gone from bad to worse regarding Obama’s desire to eliminate all US nuclear weapons. Last week I highlighted the Suicidal-in-Chief’s desire to drastically undermine America’s nuclear defense and strike capabilities is detailed in the president’s New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New-START) with Russia, that he signed in April of 2010. Today these ominous developments have come to light.

These enormous reductions are the next step in President Barack Obama’s reckless path to “eliminate all nuclear weapons.” The US now has about 5,113 nuclear warheads but Obama wants to reduce that number to around 3,000. Continue Reading »

Judge Strikes Down Traditional Marriage

7/13/2010 – Chris Gacek –
Two opinions issued by Massachusetts federal Judge Joseph L. Tauro last Thursday represent only the most recent example of egregious judicial activism.

In them, he declared unconstitutional the federal definition of “marriage”—the union of one man and one woman. This traditional definition prompted the judge to opine that “there exists no fairly conceivable set of facts that could ground a rational relationship between [the federal definition of marriage] and a legitimate government objective.” Continue Reading »

Obama’s Suicidal Nuclear Arms Policies Endangering America

Suicidal in Chief Obama7/8/2010 – B. Chrysostom –

Barack Hussein Obama is not only the most radical, incompetent, and leftist president we’ve ever had, but he is also one of the most dangerous. His unilateral approach to drastically reduce America’s nuclear missiles arsenal and abandon key missile defense capabilities both in Europe and at home, are not just criminally reckless, but downright suicidal.

The latest attempt by Obama to destroy America’s nuclear defense and strike capabilities is detailed in the president’s New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New-START) with Russia, that he signed in April of 2010.

Mitt Romney concludes that “New-START gives Russia a massive nuclear weapon advantage over the United States.” The various provisions of this nuclear weapons “treaty” will not only undermine America’s nuclear capabilities, but also prevent America from properly developing its arsenal while giving Russia an overwhelming and unfair advantage. According to Mitt, the New-START agreement: Continue Reading »

NASA New Logo Contest: New Arabic Sensitivity Administration

NASA - New Arabic Sensitivity Administration7/7/2010 – B. Chrysostom –

Yesterday, Michelle Malkin issued a call to her blog readers to help create new NASA logos to “mock Team Obama’s Muslim-pandering makeover of the space program.” Some of the best logos submitted can be seen below.

The logo makeover contest was in response to the latest “Muslim friendly” NASA policies that Obama has foisted on America’s space exploration agency. Yes, this is no joke! Barack Hussein Obama has designated NASA’s new mission to “engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science.”

This information was revealed by NASA’s new Administrator Charles Bolden (appointed by Obama) in a recent interview with Al Jazeera. Bolden emphasized that strengthening ties with Muslim countries “was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.” Continue Reading »

World Leaders Accept Demise of Global Warming Agenda

Al Gore Church of Climatology7/6/2010 – Jim Campbell –

Al Gore’s Church of Climatology has been abandoned by world leaders in their quest to maintain power and political position.

Lawrence Solomon recently reported that G20 leaders in Toronto tried to avoid the fate of colleagues felled by warming advocacy by turning their backs on global warming legislation.

Will the “mainstream” media in the U.S. report these findings? Not likely!

Last week’s G8 and G20 meetings in Toronto and its environs confirmed that the world’s leaders accept the demise of global-warming alarmism. Continue Reading »

Barack Obama: The Great Jobs Killer

7/4/2010 – Wayne Allyn Root –

As former President Ronald Reagan might have said, “Obama, there you go again.”

The current occupant of the White House claims to know how to create jobs. He claims jobs have been created. But so far the score is Great Obama Depression 2.2 million lost jobs, Obama 0 — a blowout.

Obama is as hopeless, helpless, clueless and bankrupt of good ideas as the manager of the Chicago Cubs in late September. This “community organizer” knows as much about private-sector jobs as Pamela Anderson knows about nuclear physics.

It’s time to call Obama what he is: The Great Jobs Killer. With his massive spending and tax hikes — rewarding big government and big unions, while punishing taxpayers and business owners — Obama has killed jobs, he has killed motivation to create new jobs, he has killed the motivation to invest in new businesses, or expand old ones. With all this killing, Obama should be given the top spot on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. Continue Reading »

United States Declaration of Independence

United States Declaration of IndependenceIN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

No One’s Capital Is Safe in Obama’s America

Obama Communist America7/1/2010 – Claude Sandroff –

Obama’s poorly coded message to investors is to take your money out of America and keep it out. Whether through excessive taxation, suffocating over-regulation, or thuggish confiscation, the lesson to be drawn by anyone with excess capital is to look for friendlier places to put it to work.

The list of friendlier places excludes North Korea, Venezuela, and Iran for the time being, but almost everywhere else qualifies. Russia’s president spent several days in Silicon Valley recently looking for adventurous investors and came away with a $1B commitment from Cisco Systems. For Cisco, sitting on a cash hoard of $30B, with years of experience partnering with the burgeoning Russian venture capital industry, the decision was probably not a very tortured one. And what a perfect opportunity for Cisco’s CEO John Chambers to keep his cash as far from Obama’s collection agencies as possible. Continue Reading »
