President Barack Obama spoke to 841 men and 206 women at the Naval Academy commissioning ceremony in Annapolis, Md., on Friday, telling them that sexual assault threatens the entire military and it should be stopped.
"Those who commit sexual assault are not only committing a crime, they threaten the trust and discipline that makes our military strong," Obama told the Navy grads. "That's why we have to be determined to stop these crimes, because they've got no place in the greatest military on earth."
Earlier this week, the Department of Veterans Affairs revealed that in 2012, more than 85,000 veterans were treated for injuries or illness stemming from sexual abuse in the military. Analysts said that the actual number is likely to be even higher, since many victims decide not to report abuse, for a variety of reasons. more >>
A conspiracy theorist and libertarian radio personality has claimed that the federal government has the means to use weather phenomenons like tornadoes as weapons.
Alex Jones, author, documentary filmmaker, and overseer of the website inforwars.com, responded to a question from a caller Tuesday regarding the possible existence of "Weather Weapons."
"They spend, the Department of Energy, the last time I checked, $5 billion a year in studying weather modification," said Jones on his Austin, Texas-based radio program, The Alex Jones Show. more >>
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said in a recent interview that she maintains hope that President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare," will be repealed before 2016, saying she believes God will ultimately perform a miracle.
"I think the president will ultimately be forced to repudiate his own signature piece of legislation because the American people will demand it," Bachmann told radio host Dr. James Dobson on his "Family Talk" radio program Tuesday.
"And I think before his second term is over, we're going to see a miracle before our eyes, I believe God is going to answer our prayers and we'll be freed from the yoke of Obamacare," the Minnesota representative added. "I believe that's going to happen and we saw step one last week with the repeal of Obamacare in the House. We have two more steps. We serve a mighty God and I believe it can happen." more >>
Wow, after five years of his loyal constituents supporting him and receiving nothing in return, it was nice to see President Obama address this year's all black male Morehouse College graduates. Obama even found his black vernacular as he always does before a black crowd, saying, "I know some of you are just graduating, thank you Lordy." As if all black people walk, talk, and think alike. Sickening and offensive.
Nevertheless, the last time Obama spoke to a historically black college or university was in 2007 at Howard University when he was trailing Hillary Clinton in the black vote for the Democrat presidential nomination. Can we say pandering?
Equally surprising during his Morehouse commencement address, Obama referred to himself "as a black man like you" something he rarely, if ever has done. Obama didn't refer to himself as a black man during his re-election campaign either. In fact, quite the opposite, as America's first black president he's largely made it a point of distancing himself from black America but ironically need black Americans vote each time to win. more >>
Top Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official, Lois Lerner, has invoked the Fifth Amendment before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on Wednesday, refusing to testify but simply saying that she had "not done anything wrong."
Lerner, who leads the I.R.S.'s division on tax-exempt organizations, is the IRS official who first disclosed that the agency had targeted conservative groups.
On Wednesday morning she refused to answer hard-hitting questions related to the recent controversy saying, ''I have done nothing wrong. I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations and I have not provided false information to this or any other committee.'' more >>
Progressivism thrives best when truth is suppressed, but suppressed truth is still truth. You can try to sink it, shred it, cover it and destroy it, but truth eventually rises to the surface. Truth floats. Always.
Currently, the various scandals within the Obama administration have put Progressives in defensive mode to protect an ideology built on lies. Each day brings with it a new scandal or a new angle to a previous scandal. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS, and the DOJ's seizure of phone records have one thing in common: suppression of truth.
Americans are discovering Progressivism isn't all it is cracked up to be. Even the coolest of Progressive presidents can't deliver the goodies they promise if what they really intended to deliver was hidden inside a bag of lies. more >>
