Category Archives: Eye on America

The title of this category says it all. Of course, we could have called it “Watch on the Potomac” – but then we decided to develop a category for that subject anyway. In pre-war Germany – it was called “the Rhine.” Same difference – different time, different geographical region.

Obama’s tantrum a striking display of failed leadership

obama03If it is true that the best defense is a good offense, President Obama should be celebrating in the end zone now. Obviously furious over criticism that his anti-terror policies are weak and that the Orlando slaughter proves it, he went on a televised tirade to let America know he’s mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.

NOTE: The following video is complete in Bathroom Barry’s comments regarding the mass “shooting” in Orlando last weekend – BUT – his personal attack begins at about 13:00 minutes. ~ J.B.

He laid waste to a field of straw men, cable-TV pundits and the always-evil “partisan rhetoric,” by which he means anyone who disagrees with him. It was a striking display of personal anger and pent-up grievances — and a total failure of leadership during a national crisis. Continue reading

Obama’s transgender mandate MUST NOT be allowed to stand… here’s what we must do

~ Forewords ~
obama_MO-BOI was waiting to keep cool about this sick issue, but I see I can’t add anything more of any real value to what you will read below. I will repeat this though. Increasingly it’s so blatantly obvious that we what we contend with is ideology indoctrination and obedience to statist dictats, for which I have often said the government public warehousing system, aka public schools, is mainly about. Year after year, various tests prove our criminally shortchanged and misguided “school kids” fail all the tests of core subjects. Again, it is not because of accidents of general failure for generations.

A functionally literate population is a dangerous population to the establishment, especially in a nation in decline in many spheres. Decadence, anarchy and chaos via secular humanism is much easier to control. ~ A. Carlson

No Matter Who Wins . . . You Lose

clown-car_medI’ve endeavored to write as little as possible about the 2016 elections. This avoidance is based primarily on my belief that our system is so corrupt, so broken, and so phony that it’s beyond fixing. Hell, even the idea that it can be “fixed” is a sign of magical thinking.

It’s a little like functioning under the delusion that, if we spoke nicely and gave them transgender bathrooms, ISIS would suddenly embrace tolerance and religious diversity and quit lopping off the heads of the infidels. Continue reading

Ross: Be Careful What You Wish For…

ross_unmaskedI used to watch a lot of crime shows on TV and I recall watching one once in which a detective was talking about the modus operandi of cult leaders. The detective was saying that cult leaders are, more often than not, charismatic and well spoken, and they prey upon the sentiments and weaknesses of those whom they wish to seduce into their cult. By saying things that people want to hear these cult leaders lure people into following them; often to their later regret. Jonestown is a perfect example; I’m sure had Jim Jones told people at the very beginning that if they followed him he was going to tell them to drink poisoned Kool Aid the people would not have so readily followed him.

FULL List of Paychecks Hillary Collected From Wall Street

Out of the 92, only about 5 or 6 are less than $225,000.00

Any of these listed your favorite companies? Must have some really good stuff to tell the audience. Wonder what it was? Good for her. She is a money making machine.

The media’s going nuts that Hillary Clinton took three big paychecks for three speeches at Goldman Sachs. At $225,000 a pop – that’s pretty good scratch – but it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

She’s been very, very busy, raking in millions in a three-year stretch since she left her post as the Secretary of State. Continue reading

Ross: I Have Had Enough Of This Bullshit

mississippi-state-flagIn yesterday’s paper there was an article, that after reading it, I’m lucky I didn’t have a heart attack or stroke; that’s how high my blood pressure spiked. I’m still angry, but my emotions have settled down enough to let me coherently focus on unscrambling the raw anger and channeling it into what you are about to read.

First, a bit of background. It seems that one Carlos Moore, an African-American attorney from Grenada, Mississippi has filed a lawsuit against the State of Mississippi regarding the State Flag. Mississippi has flown the same flag since 1894, that flag consisting of three horizontal stripes; blue, white and red, with a smaller Confederate Battle Flag, or St. John’s Cross, in the upper left hand corner. Moore is asking District Judge Carlton Reeves to declare the flag an unconstitutional relic of slavery. Continue reading

The Number One Reason Americans Will Be Sent to FEMA Camps In a Hillary Clinton Presidency

fun-campsWith 300 million guns in America, the establishment must find away around the the obvious means that Americans can defend themselves against the encroaching tyranny. And the criminal elite running this country have found a way around the obvious barriers. The solution is simple, simply take a page out of the old Soviet Union’s manual for political repression.

For decades, the majority of the workers of America could best be portrayed in the following manner:

Americans were taught by the Mainstream Media to not question authority. Corporate controlled news became gospel of truth for the majority of Americans…

Supreme Court Affirms ‘One-Person, One-Vote’ Standard

supremecourtThe Supreme Court ruled against a challenge to a decades-long practice used in drawing political maps, saying states may continue to divide legislative seats according to total population rather than limiting representation to citizens or voters.

The decision is a blow to conservative activists who argued the Constitution forbids counting immigrants or prisoners who lack the right to vote. The plaintiffs alleged the Texas legislative map effectively diluted the representation of citizens in rural, Republican-leaning areas in favor of Democratic-trending cities like Houston, where the population includes immigrants and children who are ineligible to vote. The “one-person, one-vote” principle was established in the 1960s, and nearly every state since then has divided legislative districts according to total population. (Read Complete Story)

All of a Sudden

“All Of A Sudden… Seven Short Years Have Passed!”

cold-blood_polskiBefore Obama there was virtually no outlandish presence of Islam in America.

  • All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools. Christianity and the bible are banned in schools.
  • All of a sudden we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and allow for Islamic prayer in schools, airports and businesses.
  • All of a sudden we must stop serving pork in prisons.
  • All of a sudden we are inundated with law suits by Muslims who are offended by American culture.

Trump’s Nuclear Experience

~ Foreword ~
trump-devil-apprenticeBelieve me, I had no time or desire to read such a lengthy report today, especially about Trump or any of the other school-yard bullies in this campaign.

But that particular sense that I live with 24 hours a day, that I don’t know what I don’t know, gnawed at me. It urged me to read it right away. Am I ever glad I did, for it was MOST revealing!!!

My lack of trust for the so-called experts to contain planetary nuclear disaster, made my profound concern of a nuclear weapons catastrophe and their proliferation, all the more worrisome, after reading what Donald Trump found out. After studying “The Subject” from the writings of the experts for years, it has long been my belief that nuclear weapons will be the cause for the destruction of this planet.

All the more do I have absolutely no doubt about it now.

After reading about Donald Trump’s work on “The Subject” to contain this horror, it has increased my concern a million-fold.

Whatever you do, find the time to read this article. ~ AC

Mercer: Trump Nation Tired Of Racial Sadomasochism

mercerVan Jones was having a tantrum on TV.

The former special adviser for green jobs to Barack Obama, and all-round politically privileged and successful African-American, was demanding that Donald Trump, forthwith, get “passionate” about the black community.

Atone The Donald must for allegedly cozying up to the Klan.

The dust-up was about David Duke, former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Duke had endorsed Trump. Trump was supposed to flagellate for it. He didn’t. When CNN’s Jake Tapper pressed a peeved Trump to disavow the Duke endorsement, Trump hummed and hawed, and seemed generally annoyed at the reprimand. Apparently, he’s not into racial sadomasochism.

Bernie Sanders’ Concept of Socialism Is Getting More Popular

demo_socialists_of-AmericaBernie Sanders will not win the Democratic Party nomination. Nevertheless, he has already scored a victory by making socialism popular with Americans, especially young ones. This despite the fact that it is a social system that has failed wherever it has been tried.

There are many reasons for this. In Commentary, Ben Domenech provides a comprehensive guide to them. He also writes:

[T]he opposition to socialism in America has drifted downward.

A 2015 Gallup poll showed that 35 percent of the American populace views socialism favorably. Continue reading

Hillary Advisers From Big Health, Big Pharma

Evita Clinton: And the money kept rolling in from every side. Hillary's pretty hands reached out and they reached wide.

Evita Clinton: And the money kept rolling in from every side. Hillary’s pretty hands reached out and they reached wide.

Hillary Clinton is campaigning as a guardian of President Barack Obama’s progressive policy accomplishments. In recent weeks, she has called the Affordable Care Act “one of the greatest accomplishments of President Obama, of the Democratic Party, and of our country,” and promised that she is “going to defend Dodd-Frank” and “defend President Obama for taking on Wall Street.”

Meanwhile, however, Clinton’s campaign has been relying on a team of strategists and fundraisers, many of whom spent much of the last seven years as consultants or lobbyists for business interests working to obstruct Obama’s agenda in those two areas. Continue reading

There was a brief time, back in the early days of social media, when I had both a Facebook and a Linked-In account. This was long before the revelations of Edward Snowden. This was long before I came to view the Internet as a technology that – more often that not – is highly detrimental to intelligence, attention span, human interaction, basic courtesy and common sense.

And people still believe they are free. Continue reading

The Elephant in the Constitution that No One References when dealing with the Natural Born Citizen Issue

CS_Obama_Shredding_the_ConstitutionThe issue over the idea of natural born citizen is being touted quite a bit leading up to the GOP debate this week and in its wake, too many people are confused and have not looked at what the Constitution says, nor have they taken the time to go back and see how the founders understood the term. They regurgitate what conservative talking heads and such spew out about Supreme Court rulings and cite laws that do not deal with the term natural born citizen. However, the elephant in the room (or the Constitution) that is never addressed is the differences of how there are the apparent differences of citizens in the Constitution itself. Continue reading

The Cowboys Last Stand

COWBOY-HERDINGI returned from Burns, Oregon last night discouraged and disappointed. Never let it be said that there was any premeditation or strategic planning for the events at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Watching the events unfold as they have, the only conclusion that can be reached is that the occupation of Malheur Headquarters – or the Harney County Resource Center may well be known in history as The Cowboy’s Last Stand. They have the media event down pat but the back half… the planning for the “now what do we do” is demonstrably lacking as the events are rolling along ad hoc. At yesterday’s press conference – which I found out about literally two seconds before I was ready to leave town, we hear that Stephen E. Grasty is preventing the occupiers from using any county facilities for holding a town hall meeting. Now that’s a surprise. Continue reading

Allen West Just Called for CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE In Order To Stop Obama’s Next Move

Lt. Col. Allen West, U.S. Army (Ret.)

Lt. Col. Allen West, U.S. Army (Ret.)

As most everybody knows by now, President Barack Obama is expected to issue unilateral executive actions on gun control within days, having been stymied repeatedly by a Congress unwilling to further infringe upon the Second Amendment.

Obama will most likely attempt to expand background checks on firearm purchases by reclassifying more individuals as “gun dealers” who must be licensed and regulated by the feds, as well as other actions that tinker around the edges and do nothing to actually address the alleged problem of “gun violence.” Continue reading

Practical Thoughts on Immigration

illegal-alien-sign

   You are now entering the Administration’s SPIN ZONE

The lesson from the last 20 years of immigration policy is that lawlessness breeds more lawlessness. Once a people or a government decides to normalize one form of lawbreaking, other forms of lawlessness will follow until finally the rule of law itself is in profound jeopardy. Today, we have a constitutional crisis on our hands. President Obama has decided that because Congress has not granted amnesty to millions of illegal aliens living in the U.S., he will do so himself. Let us ponder for a moment just how shameless this assertion of power is. Continue reading
