Election Day is Tuesday, and this is one election no voter should sit out. Every vote needs to be cast because the stakes are nothing less than the existence of the United States of America as we’ve known it since 1776. In 2008, American optimism prevailed and the nation elected Barack Obama its first black president. He was an understandable choice: He was a likeable man with a golden gift for spellbinding speeches that overrode his thin resume. He promised hope and change and created a vision of national unity, an end to venomous partisan politics
He's guilty of malfeasance if anything. He was, and is unprepared for leadership on any level. His record speaks for itself.
The mindless celebrities in H'wood are in overdrive, literally destroying their own careers for this fraud. Ever time a celebrity comes out for Obama I add them to my list of movies and tv shows I'll never watch.
#1 is correct, in my opinion. Barack's formative years were spent in Indonesia, where he was exposed to the muslim faith through his step father, lo lo soetoro, who barack never talks about. And in that process, barack learned to hold the U.S. in disdain. His disdain for the U.S. exists to this day, and he shows it every time he curls his upper lip into that sneer that people mistake for a smile. How he ever got elected, and still has any support in the U.S., will baffle political anaylysts and historians for decades to come.
Barack 0bama let America down; he let the four Americans who were murdered in Benghazi down. Actually, he refused to help them even when they asked, and these four brave Americans died, because 0bama let them down. 0bama just gave a speech about having all of us come together and help each other. He did not help the Navy Seals that died, he does not help his own family who live illegally in America and have no money. Even though he is a multimillionaire, his Aunt Zetie lives in government housing living on welfare and food stamps; 0bama's half brother had to ask a friend for money for an operation. 0bama is all talk, and in for himself.
Too many "co-incidences", "mistakes" and "gaffes" to blame such a demonstrable pattern on simple incompetence. Too many puzzle pieces that fit perfectly that form a picture of someone who's intentionally making America weaker.
'He was a likeable man with a golden gift for spellbinding speeches'. Only if he had teleprompters to read from as he delivered canned speeches to stupid people with guilt complexes.
When he had to debate Romney on his own merits he was exposed as an incompetent liar and not the person constructed by the MSM. The NY Times is one of his biggest enablers and as soon as they go broke in the near future, the country will be far better off.
I believe it was clear from the beginning that Obama waqs a far lefty. His past was clearly indicative of these traits. This nation is basically optomistic. Combine this with "white guilt" and Obama was elected.
We should never vote just for race but for the character traits that show over a long period of years. In 2008 I would have proudly voted for Colin Powell, not because of his race but his accomplishments. Since then the General has greatly surprised me and sadly has spent his capital on race rather than character. In a better world Gen. Powell would have been the first black president and a very good president indeed.
Let's just vote for the really qualified and really optimistic fixer ande get on the right path.
Øbama sickens. He is constantly using class warfare as a cover to bamboozle Americans into thinking his tax hikes are a good thing, when the taxes are hiked on rich people. He constantly criticizes rich Americans, while he lives a grand lifestyle that most rich people would be ashamed to live - lavish parties nightly at the white house, chefs flown in from out of state, endless trips and vacations around the world, endless golf. A pure, evil hypocrite. And all this on the taxpayers dime.
Not only has he let America down; he has let himself down. He is the biggest spineless coward ever. He has proved over and over what a useless idiot he is. We know he is not a leader in any sense of the word. He doesn't have the capacity for it.
I never thought there was anything remotely likeable about him, because he struck me as a total con artist, phony, from the first sanctimonious speech I heard him make. I guess almost half the country is too stupid, lazy or deluded to apply the traditional standards to this guy. Much of the free pass was provided by Karl Rove apparently who cautioned Bush against defending, explaining, or selling policies that the DNC redefined. That passivity enabled the DNC to hang the economic downturn of 2008 on Republicans when the start of it was a result of Democrat pressure for bogus home loans to people who did not qualify. Bush raised the alarm, but did not go to the mat. Enter the blank slate, BHO.
It wasn't that long ago that Ronald Reagan fought tooth and nail to defeat communism even at the risk of Iran/Contra.Now we have a communist president who could get re-elected with illegal alien votes.He blew money like someone wanting to break the country's back.Just in case his initial plans didn't destroy the economy,he has Obamacare as a back up plan to finish business off.
Slews of companies will have 49 employees or employees working 29 hour weeks to avoid paying insurance. It isn't a matter of stinginess like the left believes but razor thin profit margins because of cut throat competition.
Now,Bronco Bahmuh has created another firestorm with free gas.Even if you approve of this,you have to have a strong police presence to keep order.
Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, who was Bishop of Rochester for 15 years, said that the Queen took an oath to "uphold God´s laws" when she was crowned. But the Bishop claimed that signing into law a Bill that would allow same-sex couples to marry would force her to break that promise she made upon her Coronation. (Snip) Bishop Nazir-Ali told the Daily Mail: "The idea of a constitutional monarchy comes from the Bible. Christians are told in the Bible to obey their rulers, unless the ruler tells us to do something God forbids.
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the Obama administration´s refusal to grant asylum to the Romeike family. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder filed against the family, arguing that asylum should not be granted because home schooling isn´t a fundamental right protected under religious freedom. The Romeikes fled Germany in 2008 facing criminal prosecution for home schooling. In 2010, they were granted political asylum by immigration Judge Lawrence Burman, but his decision was overturned by the Board of Immigration Appeals last year. On Tuesday, the three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit issued a unanimous decision against the family.
While the White House and many lawmakers push to grant legal status to immigrants who crossed the border illegally, the Romeike family thought they followed the rules -- but now face deportation. They are devout Catholics who emigrated from Germany in 2008 to home school their six children in Tennessee. As Uwe Romeike told Fox News, it is illegal to do that in Germany. (Snip) The U.S. granted the Romeikes political asylum, but in 2010 the Justice Department intervened, ruling that home-schooling could not be used as grounds to seek citizenship.
Respect for authority was one of the key concepts drilled into me as a child by my parents, who came of age in the Great Depression and then endured the rigors and discipline demanded by World War II. The inclination to respect authority stuck with me while many others in the Baby Boomer generation began to raise hell on the streets and inside of families, challenging parental and social authority. Having said that, the corollary of respecting authority is the expectation of being treated with respect by others, all the way up to our national leaders.
Here’s a riddle, but it’s not funny, and I’m almost afraid to contemplate the answer: What do you get when you cross aggressive government attempts to strip citizens of their Second Amendment rights with at least 65 million American gun owners, who have just bought roughly 65 million more guns in only the last four years? Let’s just say, “trouble” could be a euphemism for an answer. (Snip) Why are our government “servants” — elected and otherwise — trying to criminalize law-abiding taxpayers with confiscatory and unconstitutional laws and regulations?
It´s not about guns; it’s about keeping control of your life. The gun control “war” launched against American citizens and the Constitution this past week by the elites in Washington, D.C., is most certainly not about keeping little Bobby and Mary Jane safe in school. (Snip) This past week, with great showmanship, Obama squeezed the kids like triggers; he fired them like little emotional bullets into America’s heart to disrupt your ability to think clearly about what is happening to our country.
If ever a confluence of significant events called Americans to a day of sober reflection, it is Jan. 21, 2013. On that date, we mark the Inauguration of a president; the start of Barack Obama’s second term in the White House. And we also observe the annual Martin Luther King Day memorial to the nation’s revered civil rights leader. Fifty years ago, when King proclaimed his civil rights Dream, it was all but unimaginable that the nation today would not just have a black president, but would be returning him to the White House for a second term.
Ironies abound when you look back over this past week’s White House effort to take firearms out of the hands of most everyone except the armed bodyguards of all the bloviating bigshots who think you’re too dumb or unimportant to have a gun to protect your family. At the order of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden’s taskforce held a couple of days of talks on various sides of the gun issue. (Snip) A White House presspool report that came to me quoted Biden supporting “universal background checks, not just closing the gumshoe loophole.” Gumshoe loophole?
Today is the day to fight for your life. Within weeks, proposed laws will be decided that would destroy your ability to protect your family from predators, including criminals, and, especially, the political wolves who can force you to live, or die, on their terms. Tyranny, rooted in these gun control proposals, is exactly what the Second Amendment was written to prevent. Each of us has a natural human right to keep and bear arms to preserve life and liberty. History proves that surrendering arms to the state has always been a fatal mistake for populations who disarmed.
Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel´s prime minister, has ordered a campaign shake-up amid plummeting poll figures that show him haemorrhaging support ahead of this month´s election. He is said to have demanded an end to bickering within his Likud party and a bigger role for grassroots workers after successive surveys and a series of embarrassing publicity flops following his decision to merge with Avigdor Lieberman´s Yisrael Beiteinu party. His intervention comes after the latest poll – published by Haaretz newspaper – showed the Likud Beitenu bloc poised to win just 34 seats in the Knesset
Elyria — Some employees could be out of work as Invacare Corporation will have to indefinitely “stop manufacturing, designing and distributing manual and powered wheelchairs and wheelchair components” at its two Elyria facilities until it satisfies federal regulators over its quality and design control systems. (Snip) This all started in 2010 when (John) Kasich (now Ohio’s Republican governor) was on Invacare’s board of directors. The federal government was playing politics and they sent in multiple auditors. They were there for over a year, but normally you have one auditor who comes in for a few weeks. Headline resplit and Snip added by staff.
The results of the presidential election were certainly a sharp disappointment for those on the right, but conservatives shouldn’t be looking for any non-fiscal cliffs to throw themselves from. Nor should Dems see any grand mandate for President Obama’s policies. Obama won small, and the nation and Congress remain as divided as before the election. A Republican comeback in 2014, taking control of the U.S. Senate, would change the picture greatly. By 2014, Americans will have had a much bigger taste of what a second Obama term means in their daily lives
Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee
There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament. According to a report published Monday in the
America is in great shape energy-wise. We have more gas and oil reserves than ever before. Indeed, the United States could shortly become the world’s largest exporter of coal. Our cheaper power rates may bring energy-intensive industry back from Europe and Asia. If America’s small colleges are nearly broke and our public schools failing, nonetheless our blue-chip universities’ math, science, and engineering departments, and professional schools, remain the best in the world. (Snip)In our age, Nobel laureate, exempt Al Gore proved a fraud: the feminist who was accused of groping a woman in crazed sex-poodle fashion;
It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. But within a decade, it is expected that the ocean which the village of Kivalina has so relied on will completely destroy it--creating America´s first climate change refugees. Temperatures in the Arctic region of Alaska are warming twice as fast as the rest of the U.S, causing ice to retreat, sea levels to rise and coastal erosion to increase. It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. The 400 indigenous Inuit inhabitants of Kivalina, who live
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. "Notably absent from the antipoverty efforts targeting families is an essential staple for the health of children, diapers," wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Megan Smith,
Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization. According to Obama, "it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of" Congress´ legislative restrictions "in
The mother of Trayvon Martin said Monday that she believed Florida’s Stand Your Ground law played a role in her son’s shooting death, but she wasn’t ready to support a boycott of the state for not changing the self-defense law. “The thing about this law is I just think it assisted the person who killed my son to get away with murder,” Sybrina Fulton, the mother of the 17-year-old from Miami Gardens, said at a National Bar Association event in Miami Beach. “I think we have to change these laws so people don’t get
A group of experts advising the nation’s premier cancer research institution has recommended sweeping changes in the approach to cancer detection and treatment, including changes in the very definition of cancer and eliminating the word entirely from some common diagnoses. (Snip) The group, which includes some of the top scientists in cancer research, also suggested that many lesions detected during breast, prostate, thyroid, lung and other cancer screenings should not be called cancer at all but should instead be reclassified as IDLE conditions, which stands for “indolent lesions of
