The Rubicon has been crossed. The demented tyrant declares he is now Caesar. The Senate remains silent and the dependency crowd continues to spend their Food Stamps on Red Bull. The SNAP society eagerly awaits the next circus as the three ring distractions continue their Greatest Shown on Earth. America is officially dead. The multicultural melting pot has boiled over into a toxic brew of deadly hemlock. Drink the waters from the Obama River Styx and enter an underworld that would make Nero and Caligula proud. Light state boulevards with the inflamed corpses of Tea Party dissenters and recruit the lost generations of government schooled idiots into the ranks of the DHS brown shirt ‘de facto domestic military’.
What a triumph of the will. Obama gives new meaning to Seneca’s words: “He who has great power should use it lightly” as the public demonstrates that Cicero was correct: “To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child.” Continue reading
Trayvon Martin came from a broken family. Michael Brown, Jr. had a different name from his mother. Were his parents together?. Is that a pattern?
Malcolm X said to his followers that blacks had to clean up their acts. He said that for the black man to be accepted by the white man, he’d first have to make himself acceptable. He told blacks to start opening businesses, get jobs and work. Continue reading
“They don’t make ‘em like they used to…” – ‘Tough Guys,’ soundtrack. Words and music by Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, Touchstone Pictures, 1986
Some say that most of the time everyone wants to be great, because they have a natural desire for acceptance, recognition, and praise. Perhaps this is so.
And in a dark and pathological time this means that everyone wants to have power. Power becomes the standard of value, the coin of the realm in a deeply fallen world. And in such a perverse world the only virtue is greed.
So they who serve the world want to be tough guys, unafraid, quick and intemperate on the attack, harsh. Yes that is the mark of power, of one of the formidable wielders of weapons. As if there can be any just weapon that we may take up on our own, that is not given to us by the Lord for His purpose. Continue reading
We exist in a vast sea of ignorance and lack of understanding in regards to history, politics, and ideology. Not to mention the implications of each upon our nation and civilization. Perhaps we should not be surprised that large segments of society can’t put the Civil War in the correct century or begin to find major countries on a map. There are entire political ideologies that rely on that mind-numbing, and sometimes frightening, misunderstanding and basic ignorance that a significant portion of society manifests as a source for their power and strength. Continue reading
First and foremost, Barack Obama is a congenital liar, whose lies, the number and magnitude of which are produced to match the scale of his sweeping narcissism.
That type of behavior is no surprise because Obama’s character was incubated in the low expectations biosphere of political correctness, where the amount of ineptitude is excused in proportion to one’s racial genetics, ethnic purity or whatever victim categories the liberal canon dictates.
Obama has had no incentive to change because throughout life and during his time in the White House, lying has gotten him what he has wanted, while escaping responsibility and any negative consequences. Continue reading
The ritual started in earnest last fall in the midst of the biggest humiliation of Barack Obama’s presidency, the failure of the health care website. Anytime he heard a sliver of good news, the president reacted the same way: He knocked on the polished cherry wood table in the Roosevelt Room.
It’s a small thing, almost a nervous tic, but Obama’s habit of knocking on wood during Obamacare meetings had become notable, something that close advisers talked and even joked about among themselves.
Obama had always projected the aura of a deeply confident man, someone who on the basis of past experience was justified in assuming that good luck just naturally happened to him. But in the second term, confronted by recurring setbacks and regular reminders of the limits of his power, he began to convey a sense that even hopeful news might be ephemeral, a mirage.

“Government has thrown piles of money at the VA and its horrors have only grown worse.” ~ Jim Martin
Former Marine and current 60 Plus Association Chairman Jim Martin, leader of the nation’s largest conservative seniors organization with over 7.2 million senior supporters, today issued the following statement calling on Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs Eric Shinseki to resign, while Martin further highlights the failure of the VA as a failure of government.
“Candidate Obama ran on a platform of ‘fixing’ the VA, and boy did he fix it. American servicemen and women are now in more danger under government run healthcare than they were in the field of combat. This outrage should wake-up every American to the disastrous reality of what happens when we put government bureaucrats in control of our doctors. Continue reading
Senior Airman and veteran Brian Kolfage, Jr. is the epitome of what a man who has taken his oath seriously is about. After becoming the most severely wounded Airman in US history, Kolfage fought back against the odds to regain his life, marry his bride and continue to be a voice among veterans against the tyranny we see taking place under the Obama administration. In a powerful Memorial Day letter, Kolfage took time to blast Obama writing, “Your disdain for America and her greatness has never been a secret. You were raised to hate the ‘American Empire’ and were taught that the American military is the enemy.”
Here’s Kolfage’s letter in its entirety, via his Facebook page.
On this Memorial Day I can’t help but think of the many veterans who have given their lives to protect the freedoms that we all enjoy today, and quite frankly one that so many Americans take for granted. As you’re playing your 165th round of golf this weekend you can count on our warriors to protect you and to protect this great nation.
From the Civil War to the wars in the deserts of the Middle East, our brave men and women have given their lives for freedoms that can only be found in America. Generations of selfless Americans have stepped up to fight for a cause greater than themselves. Freedom is never free, and the price of our freedom has been paid with the blood of our finest Americans. Your daughters have been fortunate enough to reap the freedoms that so many have sacrificed their lives for. Without these heroes you would have never have had the opportunity to become the President of this great nation. Continue reading
We all know about the memory hole. That was the unofficial name of a department of government in George Orwell’s novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four. It was devoted to re-writing history. It destroyed historical documents to make this re-writing easier. This was its motto: “He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
Orwell used the Soviet Union as his model. The USSR was famous for using photo editing techniques to remove past leaders from old photos. These people became non-persons. Photoshop is simply a low-cost tool for modern media organizations to do similar sorts of things. They do it to sell more products. The USSR did it to maintain power.
These techniques are still being used inside what Mrs. Clinton calls the vast Right-wing conspiracy. Today’s leaders want to erase all traces of the earlier leaders. Continue reading
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just received an e-mail that claims that “if the Greenland glaciers would melt, …, entirely, then all of New York and Los Angeles and Jacksonville and Miami would be gone.” And this is a reason to STOP global warming?
As Barry Goldwater once said, the best thing to happen to this country would be to saw off the eastern seaboard, float it out into the Atlantic and sink it. Living in the Jacksonville area of Florida, I don’t lump it, nor Savannah nor Charleston and the area south of about Norfolk with the area that Goldwater meant but think what a boon it would be for the country to have the coastal one hundred mile strip from Washington to Boston suddenly under water. In one fell swoop we’d be rid of Andrew Cuomo, Bill DiBlasio, the remainder of the Kennedys, Billary, The New York Times, Washington Post, Chuckles Schumer, Sheldon Whitehouse, Deval Patrick, Jack Reed, etc. Then turning to the West Coast, if they could throw in San Francisco & Seattle, we’d be rid of Dianne Feinstein, Bill Gates, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Maxine Waters and the list could go on.
YES!!!!!! YES!!!!!! YES!!!!!! Let’s go Global Warming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“Do not suppose, I pray, that I am offended because you killed your mother, your wife, and your brother; that you burned Rome and send to the darkness all the honest men in your lands.
No, heir of Chaos. Death is the inheritance of men; from you other deeds could not have been expected. But to destroy one’s ear for whole years with your poetry, to see your big belly on slim legs whirled about in a Pyrrhic dance; to hear your music, your dramatic orations, your doggerel verses, wretched poet of the suburbs, — is a thing surpassing my power, and it has roused in me the wish to die.

Last week, former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor admitted to Fox News’s Bret Baer that President Barack Obama was not in the White House situation room on the night of September 11, 2012. That was the night — “Dude, this was like two years ago” — in which Islamic terrorists killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi.
This admission was a long time coming, in part because mainstream media reporters refrained from asking. In fact, it was not until May 19, 2013, eight months after the attack, that a newsman asked a White House spokesman what Obama did that night. The newsman was Chris Wallace of Fox News. “The ambassador goes missing, ends up the first ambassador in more than thirty years is killed. Four Americans, including the ambassador, are killed. Dozens of Americans are in jeopardy,” asked Wallace of Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to the president. “Where was he? What did he do? How did he respond?” The crafty Pfeiffer would not even acknowledge whether Obama was in the situation room. Continue reading
The United States has reached a political precipice. The country is facing the greatest Constitutional and existential crisis since the Civil War, a situation which may expose America to assaults on its national security equivalent to Pearl Harbor and 9/11.
In an effort to force a radical transformation of the United States, the rogue Obama Administration, enabled by a complicit Congress and a compliant media, has attempted to undermine the Constitution, usurp the power it reserves for the States and deny the rights it guarantees to the American people.
Executing and enforcing federal law is the fundamental duty of the executive branch of government. When a president substantially alters the intent of the laws passed by Congress or creates the conditions for avoiding compliance with the law, he is violating the Constitution. Continue reading
Rancher Cliven Bundy looks like he could still be in a heap of trouble for having thoroughly ticked off Fedzilla and the Keebler elf himself, Harry Reid.
Being the peacemaking Christian that I am, herewith are ten ways Cliven Bundy could get the Feds off his backside and actually ingratiate himself to the big government droogies of the Left. Continue reading
Militarized police, sophisticated surveillance, and normal citizens with little say in what goes on. The US has all the trappings of an all-powerful police state.
1. A totalitarian state controlled by a political police force that secretly supervises the citizens’ activities.
1.) So is the U.S. a totalitarian state?
No. It’s an inverted totalitarian state. Continue reading
A progressive talk show host this past week did a partial review of Karl Marx’s ten recommendations to establish communist society. He discussed the abolition of rights of inheritance, not completely dismissing it. He also discussed the progressive income tax which he endorsed; of course no self-respecting progressive would ever disagree with that. It is a cornerstone of progressivism. The analog would be that when you go to the grocer’s. The check out clerk would ask for your income statement before determining the charges.
He did admit that Marx wanted to destroy all rights of property; mighty charitable of him. He also stated that Marx, toward the end of his life, said he was not a Marxist, a statement which is pretty much acknowledged but which proves what I’ve been saying for years. Continue reading
In 2014, the average salary in congress is $174,000 plus perks yet many elected officials are claiming they are underpaid. For the first time in history, more than half the members of the House and Senate are now millionaires, according to the nonprofit Center for Responsive Politics, which examines the influence of money on politics in Washington.
The median net worth for lawmakers in the House and Senate was $1,008,767 .
In 2013, the House was in session for a grand total of 126 days. Congress spends roughly two-thirds of the year not working. In a typical week, members of the House and Senate work only two full days: Tuesdays and Wednesdays when committees begin public hearings around 9:30 a.m. or 10 a.m. and votes continue into the late afternoon.
To fix many problems in Washington D.C. a few common sense ideas could change this country if enacted by the same people that have abused their authority for decades. Continue reading
Am I the only one or have you noticed your liberal friends and family have been strangely silent lately?
I tweeted as much Friday and, given the number of retweets in a matter of minutes, I gather I am not alone.
So why are these normally voluble people suddenly doing a disappearing act? (I’m not talking about the politicians and pundits. They’re being paid to move their mouths.) It’s pretty obvious.
They are bewildered and embarrassed. Some are even ashamed of themselves, not that they will readily admit it. The man who was their hero has now been unmasked in every direction as the worst president since the Civil War and possibly earlier. Continue reading
The IRS’s ongoing effort to stifle conservative speech is only the latest in 60 years of Democrat efforts to marginalize conservatives. In this latest attempt, the Democrats have proved willing to give up several valued parts of their agenda – including funding for pre-kindergarten, funds for the IMF, and more dollars for ObamaCare – in order to keep proposed new IRS rules that would institutionalize the harassment of tea party groups currently under investigation.
Republicans have been willing to grant Democrats all of those agenda items if only the Democrats will delay the IRS rules governing 501(c)(4) groups. The Democrats’ refusal will be less surprising if seen as only the latest attempt in a 60-years-long attempt to shut down conservative speech. What the Democrats are ready to give in order to accomplish this goal clearly testifies to the importance they attach to the project. Continue reading
