It should come as no surprise that Barack Obama is a man of the left. As such, he tends to downplay American exceptionalism and overplay his global worldview. As a partisan politico he has elevated opponent bashing into an art form. But his latest scree against conservatives was historically unhinged.
On May 5, 2013, President Obama delivered the commencement address to Ohio State University graduates. His subject was citizenship. Most of the speech, like most commencement speeches, was innocuous and unforgettable. That is until he blamed conservatives that mistrusting government is on par with viewing our constitutional system as "a sham." He advised the graduates to "reject these voices." Here's the complete paragraph:
"Unfortunately, you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all our problems; some of these same voices are also doing their best to gum up the works. They'll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can't be trusted." more >>
A new report by the Defense Science Board lists at least 29 specific U.S. weapons system designs that were stolen by Chinese hackers.
These include several missile defense systems, such as the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System, the Terminal High Altitude Aerial Defense, and the Patriot Advanced Capability-3. Aircraft, such as the F-35 and F/A 18 fighter planes, the C-17 cargo plane, and the UH-60 Black Hawk Helicopter, were compromised, as were the Navy's new Littoral Combat Ship and several information and control systems.
While the U.S. has started to increase its pressure on China, it is a dollar short and a day late. more >>
"Obama's usual campaign method, used in 100 percent of his races, has been to pry into the private records of his opponents." TownHall.com
In the wake of revelations that the IRS was used as a thuggish enforcement arm of the Obama campaign come further allegations of snooping by the NSA. Suddenly we feel we have a creepy stalker. George Orwell's foretold world of an all-intrusive government is upon us.
Like most freedoms, ours have not been lost quickly or in war, but via the creeping incrementalism of government. more >>
A new documentary that follows the lives of three Russian orphans adopted by American parents will be screened at the Moscow International Film Festival. The filmmaker, Sarah McCarthy, hopes the film will build support to end the ban on Russian adoptions to the United States.
McCarthy never set out to make a political documentary, she explained to The Christian Post. There was no adoption ban when she began the film, "The Dark Matter of Love." It follows the adoption of three Russian children, 11-year-old Masha (11) and five-year-old twin brothers Marcel and Vadim, by the Diaz family – Claudio, Cheryl, and their 15-year-old daughter, Cami.
Parenting adopted kids presents its own unique challenges, which the film makes clear. Kids raised in orphanages tend toward two extremes, Dr. Robert Marvin, a developmental and clinical psychology expert who helps families who adopt orphans, explains in the film. They generally deal with emotion through one of two extremes: frequents outbursts – viewers get a taste of this with Marcel and Vadim's profanity-laden tantrums; or, they shut down all emotion, as Masha expertly demonstrates. more >>
Dear President Obama,
I'm not a member of the elite. I'm not a millionaire, and I don't claim to have any power or influence. I'm just an average taxpayer who lives in fly-over country. On behalf of all the Suzy Homemaker's and Joe Six-Pack's who are my neighbors, I'd like to request a favor. Please, please, leave us alone.
With all due respect for your office Mr. Obama, you were not elected to tell me what to do. You were elected to protect and defend my right to do it, as long as it's not illegal. (Please refer to the 10th amendment). more >>
In the last several elections, we've witnessed a failed campaign strategy in which the Republicans campaigned not on morality, but on prosperity. It was money over morality. Rather than have the courage to call out sin by its name, Republicans chose to talk about the economy. Talking about the economy is safe. It's politically correct. It's non-offensive. And non-religious.
As a result, a lying anti-American was given free reign-twice-- to wreck the country.
Indians know what it's like to live in the past. Now American patriots will know. They are on an ideological reservation now, and soon, perhaps, on an economic–or even geographic reservation. more >>
