In a stunning move of brilliance, Rand Paul conducts an old fashion marathon filibuster holding up confirmation of John Brennan, and forcing Eric Holder and Barack Obama to answer a simple yes or no to drone strikes on American citizens on US soil.
But we all lost with the nomination and confirmation of John Brennen as CIA Director. Lindsey Graham failed to keep his word to block his vote until we had all the details and the truth about Benghazi. Now we will likely never know, just like fast and furious, Obama's failed ATF gun running scam, supplying guns to drug cartel members in Mexico.
Ha-Joon Chang: The UK's problems go far deeper than the cuts agenda.
They are leading the way for the US....just like Greece, Spain and others have already collapsed into economic chaos, how soon will we be where they are at and eventually a third world country like Venezuela?? Hopefully we can stop the destruction in 2014. Sadly we didn't get to vote Obama out in 2012, but I have hope for 2014 now that Obama has been exposed for his corrupt and destructive ways. He is exposing himself more and more whether the mainstream media tries to cover for him or not, it's getting harder and harder to cover the lies and destruction, especially now that he's using the sequester cuts to abuse his power against the people and reducing national security.
The number of federal workers and retirees who owed delinquent income taxes jumped by nearly 12 percent in 2011, the Internal Revenue Service said Friday. (Federal workers owe $3.5B in back taxes | Fox News http://t.co/J3SHrmUSvc...
Americans who most often drink Dos Equis are in the middle-of-the-road while drinkers of Heineken's flagship brand are strongly Democratic. Samuel Adams drinkers are strongly Republican, and more likely to vote.
Interesting...I'm not a beer drinker...but enjoy sweet wine and margaritas where would that put me :) I guess if I were a beer drinker I would be a Samuel Adams drinker...because I am strongly Conservative and a registered GOP, and have voted in every election since I turned 18, 20 something years ago.
POP superstar Justin Bieber was today involved in an extraordinary clash with a cameraman outside his hotel (Homosexual Obama Supporter Justin Bieber rages at snapper: I’ll beat the f*** out of you | The Sun |News
I hate to see him ruin his reputation, especially after all the hard work he's gone through and sacrifices his mom made to get him where he is today. He needs to keep his mom and future in mind before he lets his stress and anger get in the way of his success. He's still young and has a lot of growing to do. I'd hate to see him fail and become another teen success story that goes astray.
For those who don't know ...a little background on Justin Bieber:
His mom raised him as a single mother and refused to get an abortion, for that I admire him and his mother for all they have overcome. I wish him nothing but the best and hope he will take a vacation to get away from some of the strees he's under, especially after he fainted during a concert last night.
A federal court ruled the Obama administration must turn over records related to its policy of suspending some deportations of illegal aliens, which critics have called “stealth amnesty.”
The Department of Homeland Security violated the Freedom of Information Act by failing to hand over relevant records to the D.C. watchdog group Judicial Watch, ruled Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Feb. 28.
Judicial Watch said documents it previously uncovered show DHS officials misled Congress and the public about the scope of changes in its immigration enforcement policy.
The new policy gave wide latitude to local immigration officials to dismiss illegal alien deportation cases, including the dismissal of charges against illegals convicted of violent crimes.
“This ruling shows the Obama administration is willing to go to any extent – including gaming the courts – to continue stonewalling the full story of its lawless release of illegal aliens,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“Now, with the prison floodgates being thrown open to illegal aliens under the phony pretense of abiding by sequester cuts, it is more important than ever that Obama’s hand be revealed,” he said.
The policy, implemented by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, led to a reduction of the deportation docket in Houston, Texas, by dismissing pending enforcement proceedings against illegal aliens DHS claimed did not have serious criminal records.
Judicial Watch subsequently uncovered records showing that deportation cases were dismissed against illegal aliens who had committed serious felonies.
The litigation has become more significant, Judicial Watch pointed out, with the Obama administration’s large-scale suspension of deportations and the release of thousands of criminal illegal aliens due to alleged sequester budget cuts.
Since mid-February, the Obama administration has released from jail more than 2,000 illegal aliens facing deportation, the Associated Press reported. The administration reportedly plans to release 3,000 more this month.
Judicial Watch filed its original FOIA request with DHS in August 2010 and a subsequent lawsuit in March 2011 after the department refused to release the requested records.
Time to impeach them all...sadly it will never happen with this corrupt do nothing Democratic Senate and some of the weak RINOs in the House. Hopefully after the 2014 election we take back the Senate and can start making some real changes in the right direction, starting with the impeachment of Obama, Holder, Incompetano and others responsible for failures in our national security and foreign policy starting with Fast and Furious to Benghazi and this illegal amnesty and release of criminal immigrants!
Shirley Temple (Black) was one of America’s favorite childhood actors. As an adult she ran unsuccessfully for Congress as a Republican and served as a representative to the United Nations and as Ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia under Republican presidential administrations.
Click the headline to see more women from today to women of the past who have stood for Conservatism.
Including Margaret Thatcher, Dana Loesch, Monica Crowley, and Ginger Rogers.
I used to love watching Shirley Temple when I was growing up. I had no idea she ran for Congress and served as representative to the UN as an Ambassador. It's too bad she never made it to Congress, the world might be a better place today.
I have to say this is a great list of women...I'm sure there are many more to add, but offhand this is an admirable group of women who I hope continue to inspire other women. I hope those who are able to will continue seeking a voice in Conservative politics and one day make their mark in a higher office.
I for one would never want to run for political office, but would love to become more involved in political commentary and citizen journalism and activism.
First Lady Michelle Obama tells parents to get off the couch, eat healthy and lead by example for their children's sake.
Who died and made her the nutrition expert? I bet she doesn't even have a degree in diet and nutrition yet she thinks she can tell us how to eat and exercise. It's not her job nor the governments job to tell us how to eat, let alone restrict and regulate what we can eat.
She can make suggestions, and provide resources for proper education on diet and exercise, but it's not the govts job to tell us what to eat, how to eat or when to eat and not the govts job to tell our kids what to eat, when to eat or how to eat. That is something that is up to each parent and individuals needs and something that should be decided at well doctor visits for children and adults.
A pro-gun non-profit has created the world’s first 3-D printable magazine for an AK-47 assault weapon and decided to name the ammunition after Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a staunch proponent of stricter gun control.
I'm sure she's going love having her name used to name a new magazine for an AK-47. Though aren't AK-47's only available for military use??
Video on msnbc.com: The economy is improving, but why isn’t Obama getting any of the credit? The Grio’s Joy Reid and Time’s Michael Crowley discuss.
Obama hasn't improved anything and the economy is stagnate despite what today's fixed unempoyment numbers say. They never account for the number of people who stopped looking for work and no longer qualify for unemployment and the real unemployment rate which is closer to 15%. Obama has done nothing to improve the economy so what makes them think he has improved it? He hasn't passed a balanced budget, the DEM Senate wouldn't even vote on his budget because it is so bad. They'd rather let the sequester cuts go through so they can try and blame the GOP while Obama makes wreckless cuts to defense, national security and next social security.
He doesn't want to make any real cuts to spending;won't cut his golf vacations but would rather stop White House tours to make the people feel 'the pain'. His intention is to create anger in people and make them blame the GOP for not going along with increasing taxes again, despite them going up in January after the payroll tax break expired, they increased the debt ceiling and Obama raised taxes on the wealthy. Now he wants to raise taxes again. But, since he didn't get his way, he'd rather let the sequester cuts go into effect but rather than make sensible cuts he's making cuts in areas that are vital and necessary to kep the country safe and functioning. Anyone who doesn't see this is beyond hope and help.
While the Obama administration struggles to highlight the cutbacks and consequences of the sequester, some say he should take a closer look at the millions of dollars in taxpayer money spent on his family before fueling fears, threatening political...
They should be ashamed, but they are too narcissisitic to think of anyone but themselves
An attempt by defence lawyers to have Colorado's insanity law ruled unconstitutional is denied as James Holmes nears plea hearing.
The insanity plea doesn't excuse murder, so I hope it doesn't give him a lesser sentence than he deserves. He deserves nothing less than life in prison or a mental institute like Andrea Yates who drowned her children in a bathtub and claimed it was due to temporary insanity related to Post Partum Psychosis.
South Dakota Gov. (“@FoxNews: South Dakota governor signs bill allowing armed teachers in the classroom http://t.co/R8ytvvXoie via @foxnewspolitics” YEAH!
Good move...though I would still prefer trained and armed security such as former law enforcement, military or off duty police providing the first line of security. While teachers may get adequate weapons training and learn how to deal with an active shooter, I think those who have worked in the field would be more likely to respond quickly and appropriately in this situation. But, I would rather the teachers have a way to protect and defend themselves and their students before having to wait for security to reach the classroom during an emergency situation.
In President Obama’s continuing quest for a grand bargain, $130 billion Social Security cuts have been placed on the deficit reduction table.
Why is he so willing to cut Social Security all of a sudden but not some of the govt waste, like $270,000 for White House calligraphers and some of the other wasteful spending as outlined in Senator Coburn's Annual Report Highlighting Some of the Most Wasteful Government Spending... | http://sco.lt/5Bqp5V
Michael Savage: Why Obama is confident of election outcome? Obama ensured his re-election..
See my post here entitled "A call to action to restore America and What Really Destroyed America"....there was as expected voter fraud in 2012, just as there was in 2008.
There were different theories on Scytl being owned or run by Soros affiliates, but check out http://obamavoterfraud.com to see all the documentation of voter fraud that was reported and the RNC did nothing to demand a vote recount. In result, we are stuck with Obama another four years and his path of destruction for years to come.
WASHINGTON—White House sources confirmed that after hearing a gentle tap on his window Thursday evening, President Barack Obama stepped out onto the Truman balcony to meet with the predator drone that appears outside his bedroom every night at 9...
You didn't think this was real did you? It is funny though..sometimes The Onion has some off the wall headlines that catch your eye and this was one of them as shared on twitter today. I'm sure Obama does love his drones though...since he seems to think they are better to use than waterboarding terror suspects.
RT @WiseUpLibs: Obama libs dems WAR ON VETS > Feinstein : Veterans May Have PTSD And Should Not Be Exempt From Assault Weapons Ban http://t.co/oFZRwpEpjz
Feinstein: So, you know, I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have to– if you’re going to do this, find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally don’t have access to this kind of weapon.
Why are liberals always looking for a way to disarm our veterans and those who they know would keep their oath to protect and defend the constitution from foreign and domestic enemies??
Could it be because they know how to use a weapon and handle such a situation where they need to protect and defend themselves and their families from such an event?
