Increasingly in recent months, the administration has been seeking ways to act without Congress. Branding its unilateral efforts “We Can’t Wait,” a slogan that aides said Mr. Obama coined at that strategy meeting, the White House has rolled out dozens of new policies — on creating jobs for veterans, preventing drug shortages, raising fuel economy standards, curbing domestic violence and more.
If George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin soon, the Rev. Al Sharpton will call for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions. Sharpton would not say the efforts would be taken against the city of Sanford specifically, but he has been critical of the police department’s handling of the case.
President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility. President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.
Andre Carson says that the Tea party wants blacks ‘hanging on a tree’. A top lawmaker in the Congressional Black Caucus says tea partiers on Capitol Hill would like to see African-Americans hanging from trees and accuses the movement of wishing for a return to the Jim Crow era.
“I’m not afraid of anybody,” the California congresswoman told constituents in footage that appeared on ABC affiliate KABC in Los Angeles, not backing down from comments made about President Obama earlier in the week. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned — the tea party can go straight to hell.”
Ron Paul narrowly lost the Iowa straw poll last week to Michele Bachmann by a few hundred votes. He spent a fraction that Bachmann spent on advertising and campaigning throughout Iowa. You would never know that seeing as how many in the media are already writing him off as an illegitimate candidate. Like Rodney Dangerfield, […]
It is evident to me now; a TeaParty candidate is not necessarily going to be a Republican candidate. A TeaParty candidate is different from many of the Republicans we have in office now. I consider myself to be a proponent of the TeaParty movement. I am more conservative than are my Republican leaders. I think […]
President Obama must be grinning from ear to ear. not only has the news reported yesterday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is scheming to raise the debt ceiling with no real spending cuts, but if this plan goes through, Senator McConnell will have handed yet more power over to the Executive Branch. It seems […]
Barney Frank and Ron Paul plan to introduce legislation that will legalize marijuana and allow states to legislate its use, pro-marijuana groups said Wednesday. The legislation would limit the federal government’s role in marijuana enforcement to cross-border or inter-state smuggling, and allow people to legally grow, use or sell marijuana in states where it is legal.
At a congressional hearing on Muslim radicalization in U.S. prisons, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said that investigators needed to analyze Christian militants in America because they too might try to “bring down the country.” In an exchange with witness Patrick Dunleavy, the former deputy inspector of the criminal intelligence unit, New York Department of Correctional Services, Rep. Jackson Lee mentioned the case of a man who blew up an abortion clinic and proposed that this perhaps was an attempt to undermine U.S. law that allows a woman to procure an abortion.
Geithner to steal from retiree pensions to pay for programs. The Obama administration will begin to tap federal retiree programs to help fund operations after the government lost its ability Monday to borrow more money from the public, adding urgency to efforts in Washington to fashion a compromise over the debt.
Obama jumped on the racism bandwagon again yesterday in El Paso as he preached from his high and mighty throne about immigration reform (also known as: 12 million votes for his retention of power). After arrogantly taking full credit for Bin Laden’s death, Obama is still in celebration mode shooting his imaginary AK-47 in the […]
President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign is banking on gay donors to make up the cash it’s losing from other groups of wealthy supporters who have been alienated and disappointed by elements of Obama’s first term. Pleased by an all-out White House push to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell,” gay donors have surprised campaign officials with the extent of their support. And the campaign’s new fundraising apparatus appears designed to capitalize on their enthusiasm: Obama’s finance committee included one gay man in 2008; there are 15 this year, a source said.
Remember the ’08 campaign where Obama’s main attack against John McCain was “voting for McCain is a 3rd term for Bush”? Obama based his entire rhetoric on being everything that Bush was not, and how he was going to, once in office, undo all that Bush has done? Well, let’s take a quick peek and see how different life is under Obama compared to Bush policies and doctrine. SPOILER ALERT: Libs stop reading now, because the truth is gonna hurt…bad.
Tavis Smiley, PBS host, has decided that it’s never too early to play the race card. Because when you do that, then people of diverse ethnic backgrounds who hold public office can no longer be held to any reasonable standard of accountability for their actions or workplace performance. So under the race card banner,
Senior western leaders called for NATO to adopt an assassination policy against Col Muammar Gaddafi to salvage the bombing campaign in Libya from a descent into stalemate. The calls came as Col Gaddafi was reported to have strengthened his grip on power by repatriating billions of dollars in overseas assets that should have been frozen by UN sanctions.
Many Americans are wondering if Arizona fell off the Wild-Wild-West bandwagon last night. I too was surprised and disappointed by our Governor’s decision to veto the so-called ‘’Birther’’ bill. However, after listening to her reason behind the veto and separating my personal feelings, I agree with her decision and here’s why Conservatives should too. One […]
Trump’s popularity in GOP polls shows how desperate and pitiful Republicans and conservatives are to beat Obama and what a lack of good candidates we have. Trump is the Ross Perot of 2012 (if he even lasts into 2012). Now, Trump is throwing out comments like, “The world has a Muslim problem,” when he knows full well that it’s Dhimmi Donald Trump who also has a Muslim problem.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Wednesday that Congress will allow the country to borrow more by agreeing to increase the $14.3 trillion debt limit. Treasury has forecast that the limit will be reached by May 16. After that point, Treasury can take emergency measures to avoid hitting the debt ceiling. But those actions will only give the United States about a two-month window before Treasury is unable to issue debt to fund government operations.
Some that there is no proof President Barack Obama was born in the United States and is therefore ineligible to be president. Democrats argued the bill exceeds the state’s authority and say state officials are not fully qualified to determine the validity of a candidate’s documents. Republicans argue the U.S. Constitution gives state legislatures the right to determine how federal elections are conducted.
Friday evening was a major let down. All the anticipation and build up, it felt as if we were getting ready to watch someone open Obama’s birth certificate. Republicans tried to flex their fiscal Conservative muscles but in the end, they need to go back to the gym. Friday night unfortunately, too many Republicans literally […]
Recently my facebook wall was on fire with Teaparty members disagreeing about Fridays’ last minute deal. Some believed there were wins here though. I think it is also good to point the bit of progress made. After all the history of offers on this bill went like this: “Democrats first offered no cuts, then $4 […]
