Last Thursday, the House of Representatives for the 257,000th time voted to repeal Obamacare. Once more, it was a meaningless resolution. The agency they should be abolishing is the Internal Revenue Service.
The Obamacare vote was nothing more than political posturing. But there is a far more serious issue that must be dealt with by the House of Representatives.
The issues are those surrounding the IRS scandal. more >>
Near the 2012 election, and after bragging about killing bin Laden based on intelligence gained by water boarding (a tactic he campaigned against), Obama and his O-bots lied to us about Benghazi.
O-bots are the many disciples in his administration and the media who, like robots, do Obama's bidding when it's asked for or implied. O-bots knowingly put out the false narrative blaming the 9/11 attacks on a "spontaneous reaction" to an obscure You Tube video. Either the Benghazi Film Critics' Society is the most brutal in the world, or the release of the amateur video just happened to coincide with "Bring Your Rocket-Propelled Grenade Launcher to Work Day." It was a lie from the get-go.
Hillary Clinton's State Department colluded with other agencies - and probably Obama's campaign team in Chicago - to rewrite the post-Benghazi talking points eleven times and purge them of anything that reflected negatively on the President. Her redacting the facts from the administration's narrative in order to protect her meal ticket, the President of the United States, rings nostalgic. It's as if she is First Lady again. more >>
A nationwide poll has found that most Americans still have a favorable view of President Barack Obama despite the recent scandals surrounding the government, but most also agree that Republicans are reacting appropriately when it comes to raising concerns about the issues.
The CNN/ORC International survey, which was released Sunday morning, found that 53 percent of respondents approved of the job Obama is doing as president, while 45 percent said that they disapprove.
The Obama administration has recently been involved in what some have called a "triplegate" of scandals, including the Internal Revenue Service targeting some conservative groups; a suspected cover-up of the September 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi; as well as the Justice Department spying on phone records from The Associated Press. more >>
Break the cycle of fatherlessness, set high standards for yourself, serve those in need, and stop using racism as an excuse for lack of excellence, President Barack Obama told the graduates of Morehouse College, an all-black male college in Atlanta, Ga.
The tradition at Morehouse, Obama said in his Sunday commencement address, is not just to produce smart graduates, but men of strong character.
He began with a quote from former Morehouse President Benjamin Mays: "It will not be sufficient for Morehouse College, for any college, for that matter, to produce clever graduates … but rather honest men, men who can be trusted in public and private life – men who are sensitive to the wrongs, the sufferings, and the injustices of society and who are willing to accept responsibility for correcting [those] ills." more >>
With three full-blown scandals currently surrounding the Obama administration, there are too many "-gates" to name just one. There is the cover-up of the fatal Benghazi terrorist attack, the IRS targeting conservatives, and the Justice Department spying on members of the press. The level of corruption is so high right now; it is like Saul Alinsky is running the White House.
Alinsky, the radical activist who wrote Rules for Radicals, which he dedicated to Satan, taught the radical left to use dishonest tactics in order to achieve their agenda – "by any means necessary." He advocated lying and harassing those with opposing viewpoints. Both Obama and Hillary Clinton were deeply influenced by Alinsky. Alinsky biographer Sanford Howitt has said Alinsky influenced Obama's 2008 election campaign, and that Obama followed in his footsteps as a community organizer. Alinsky's son David wrote in an article that appeared in the Boston Globe, "Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father's model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we his approach his 100th birthday." Obama revealed a few years ago that his years training as a community organizer at Alinsky's Industrial Areas Foundation, "gave him the best education of his life." He has quoted Alinsky in speeches.
Four Americans died during the Benghazi attacks, and it is now coming out that the White House knew the embassy needed more security, and knew terrorists were targeting it, but did nothing. Three whistleblowers have come forward, in spite of being threatened with demotions, to tell Congress that the administration knew at the time of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice's public comments that the Benghazi terrorist attack was connected to terrorists, and they in fact deleted out those references in her talking points, revising them 12 times. One of the whistleblowers, Gregory Hicks, who was the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya during 2012, is a Democrat, not exactly someone who has anything to gain for partisan reasons. more >>
Americans are the biggest losers from the slew of scandals now rocking the White House, but who are the biggest winners? Iran, North Korea, Syria, China, and Russia. If US foreign policy seemed spineless and muddled in confronting bad actors before the Benghazi-IRS-AP scandals surfaced, the US just became that much more irrelevant to its archrivals and antagonists on the world stage.
Unfortunately, the trio of scandals comes at an extremely dangerous time. The ever-unpredictable North Korea just fired three short-range guided missiles. Much more ominously, Russia is reverting to a Cold War mindset in ways far more serious than the recent arrest of alleged CIA operative Ryan Fogle. Russia is doubling-down on its strategy of backing its Syrian client, and the stakes couldn't be higher.
Russia recently sold advanced Yakhont anti-ship cruise missiles to Syrian President Bashar Assad. These missiles, outfitted with an advanced guidance system, effectively empower Syria to thwart any attempt by international forces to help Syrian rebels with a naval embargo or no fly zone. Upping the ante even more, Russia sent at least a dozen warships to its Tartus naval base in Syria, according to a Wall Street Journal report last Thursday. Russia has also declared its intention to complete its sale of the S-300 advanced anti-aircraft missile system to Syria. The S-300 is a state-of-the-art system that can intercept fighter jets and cruise missiles at a range of about 124 miles and would therefore – if actually delivered to Assad – represent a game-changer that disturbs the current military balance of power in the Middle East. That is undoubtedly a red line for Israel, and Israel takes its red lines seriously, as it has shown with airstrikes on Syrian targets to prevent the transfer of sophisticated weapons to Hezbollah. more >>
