Rick Perry: “Our Troops Deserve Better Than Being Used as Political Pawns” By Obama
3 Mar 2014 7:55 pm
Texas Governor Rick Perry isn’t happy with President Obama’s plan to gut the National Guard, and his reasoning is sound. For him, it’s not about politics. It’s about the safety of fellow Texans:
As commanders in chief of our respective National Guards, it’s our responsibility to keep our citizens safe and secure, and the president needs to hear our input.
Mr. Obama must understand the key role they play in domestic emergency response. In Texas, for example, our National Guardsmen have responded to at least 23 hurricanes across the Gulf Coast over …
Iowa Refers 80 Cases Of Voter Fraud To Prosecutors
28 Feb 2014 7:32 pm
Do you know why Democrats keep asserting that voter fraud is a myth? Because it’s a useful tool for them and they want to keep pressing the idea that Republicans are just trying to disenfranchise minorities. However, this story out of Iowa shows that voter fraud is alive and well:
Vice President Biden claimed voter ID laws were evidence of “hatred” and “zealotry” during a Black History Month event yesterday in Washington.
Ignoring the fact that voter ID laws were declared constitutional in a 2006 Supreme Court decision written by John Paul …
NY Middle School Forces Girls to Ask One Another for “Lesbian Kiss” And Pretend Like They Are On a Date
28 Feb 2014 7:17 pm
Parents? Schools don’t think they need to talk to parents. After all, the children belong to the collective:
A recent anti-bullying presentation at a middle school in New York that focused on homosexuality and gender identity has angered parents after their daughters have come home to tell them they were forced to ask another girl for a kiss.
According to reports, the session occurred last week at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, New York, near Poughkeepsie. A group of students from Bard College led two workshops for the youth, separated …
Claim: CT to Gun Owners: “Surrender, Destroy or Sell” Your ‘Assault Weapons’
28 Feb 2014 7:02 pm
This is what tyranny looks like:
It looks like some gun owners in Connecticut who tried to register their “assault weapons” (that’s the state of CT’s actual term for these firearms), but missed the deadline are now getting letters instructing them to destroy or surrender their firearms. According the letter, posted on several message boards and online media sources, residents who failed to register their firearms must now take the following action: 1. Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable. 2. Sell the assault weapon to a licensed gun dealer. 3. Remove …
Republicans Talk Impeachment at Special Judiciary Panel Hearing on President’s Duty to Execute the Law
27 Feb 2014 8:25 pm
Today the House Judiciary Panel held a special hearing to discuss whether President Obama has crossed the line regarding his Constitutional powers in order to further his agenda. I’d think most of the testimony would be one word answers. “Yes. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.”
CSPAN posted the list of people testifying today:

Steven Seagal: If the Truth Comes Out About Benghazi, Obama Will be Impeached (Video)
27 Feb 2014 8:09 pm
Wow. Steven Seagal was supposed to give a light-hearted address, but no one tells him what to do. He just blasts the Obama administration, and he’s completely right:
Seagal’s tone was anything but joking, as he sternly and seriously gave his grave assessment of the political leadership and tyranny taking place in America today. Seagal begins by displaying disbelieve of the depravity coming out of Washington, DC:
“Never in my life did I ever believe that our country would be taken over by people like the people who are running it at …
Global Warming Nut Jobs Want “Nuremberg-Style Trials” For Corporate And Political Executives For “Crimes Against Humanity And The Planet”
27 Feb 2014 7:58 pm
Just, wow. These guys want to haul CEO’s and I assume Fox News before a judge for not believing we’re all going to die in Al Gore’s fiery fantasy:
An epic struggle is currently taking place that will determine the fate, and perhaps the survival, of our species. It is a collision between natural limits and rational awareness of the need to respect those limits, on the one hand, and the forces of blind greed, on the other.
Over the next few years, fundamental questions about who we are as a species really will …
Leading Texas Democratic Senate Candidate Compares Obama To Hitler, Wants to Impeach Him
26 Feb 2014 10:21 pm
Good news for whoever the Republican candidate turns out to be. Their likely opponent is a LaRouche nutjob:
In what has to be a blow for Democratic partisans who were convinced that state Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) can single-handedly turn the Lone Star State blue in November, the Texas Democratic Party appears to be on the verge of tarnishing its reputation. According to a poll conducted by the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune, the frontrunner to face likely incumbent Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) in November is Kesha Rogers. She is also somewhat… …
Beach Bum Drives Cadillac Escalade, Collects Food Stamps and Doesn’t Plan to Get a Job (Video)
26 Feb 2014 10:10 pm
It wasn’t too long ago that Jesse Watters made beach bum Jason Greenslate famous by profiling him on The O’Reilly Factor. See, Jason lives on food stamps, but he drives and Escalade and doesn’t have any plans on getting a job. Why should he, he asks:
Despite new cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Jason Greenslate – the ‘food stamp surfer’ who shot to infamy last year for proudly declaring he eats lobster and sushi and won’t get a job – continues to get food stamps.
And, what’s more, the 29-year-old guitarist says …
BOOM: Louisiana Strips Food Stamp Benefits From Welfare Recipients Who Used Computer Glitch To Go On Walmart Spending Spree
26 Feb 2014 9:54 pm
When you abuse the system, you should be held accountable. These folks took advantage of a computer glitch to steal, if not from Walmart, than from the people of Louisiana. They deserve this:
Louisiana’s social services department said Monday it has stripped food stamps from six people who deliberately overspent their monthly benefits when the electronic service was down in October and was working to disqualify another 25 people.
Details of possible fraud also have been shared with local law enforcement, for district attorneys to decide if they want to prosecute people …
EBT Cards Used In Colorado Weed Shops At Least 64 Times…Just In January
25 Feb 2014 8:53 pm
Colorado Democrats were against prohibiting the state’s EBT cards from being used in weed shops, because racism or something. Regardless, it’s being used there, a lot:
During the first month of Colorado’s experiment with legal marijuana, welfare beneficiaries withdrew thousands of dollars in public-assistance cash from ATMs at weed shops, according to records obtained by National Review Online.
At least 64 times, public-assistance benefits were accessed at businesses selling marijuana. A total of $5,475 in public benefits was withdrawn at ATMs in establishments that sell pot. This figure includes medicinal dispensaries, recreational stores …
CAIR: Requiring Schools To Say The Pledge of Allegiance Is Un-Patriotic
25 Feb 2014 7:06 pm
CAIR says that making kids say the Pledge of Allegiance goes against what the pledge stands for:
Two Senate bills in the Oklahoma legislature are seeking to compel public-school students to recite the American Pledge of Allegiance are being met both with excitement and skepticism.
The first, SB 1143, authored by State Sen. Rob Standridge (R-Norman), would require elementary students to recite the pledge each day. The other, SB 1500, from State Sen. Larry Boggs (R-Wilburton) would require essentially the same thing. On Monday, both bills sailed through the Senate Education Committee …
Code Pink Leader Laments Death of Al-Qaeda Terrorists Killed By Drone Airstrikes
25 Feb 2014 6:56 pm
According to this military grade moonbat, these kids wouldn’t be joining al-Qadea if they weren’t so poor. Why, they’re no different than the kids in America who join gangs:
Medea Benjamin, an anti-war activist and lead organizer with CODEPINK: Women For Peace, joined South Florida activists at a meeting, Feb. 18, to discuss the condition of the anti-war movement in the U.S. and internationally. The discussion at Florida International University was hosted by People’s Opposition to War, Imperialism, and Racism (POWIR) and included members from War vs. Human Needs, Students for …
Detroit Woman Shoots And Kills Robbery Suspect Who Broke Into Her Home
24 Feb 2014 9:50 pm
Liberals would have her unarmed and defenseless…and probably dead. Because that’s safer, or something:
Fox 2 News Headlines
A Detroit woman surprises an armed robbery suspect in her home. He pointed a gun at her head, but the woman was armed. Bullets started flying and the suspected ended up dead.
Police were called to the 67-hundred block of Abington Ave. after a the suspect was shot to death. We’re told it happened around 12:30 Saturday morning when the homeowner parked the car in her garage. She was walking to the front of …
Former managing partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers: “Our Economy Is About to Implode”
24 Feb 2014 9:39 pm
It really is only a matter of time:
For the United States, and the world economy, the Ides will be around March 4 this year, predicted Grady Means in October 2012.
Mr. Means isn’t a doomsayer who’s predicted 11 of the last two recessions. He isn’t trying to sell gold, silver or freeze-dried food. He was managing partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, an assistant to Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and wrote well-regarded books on international finance.
And he isn’t alone in issuing warnings.
“We expect the bottom to fall out by the second quarter of …
West Virginia Democrats Hike Minimum Wage, Exempt Themselves From It
24 Feb 2014 9:02 pm
West Virginia Democrats are taking a page out of Congress’s playbook. They jacked up the state’s minimum wage, but included language in the legislation that exempted themselves:
Last week, the Democrat controlled House in West Virginia passed legislation raising the state’s minimum wage to $8.75 an hour, $1.50 higher than the federal minimum wage. The action is part of a nation-wide effort by Democrats to make a minimum wage increase central to their platform for the midterm elections. The increase didn’t effect all workers, though. Democrats exempted many of their own …
Bloomberg News Calls For Building Obama “Shrines” Across America To Boost The Economy
19 Feb 2014 9:02 pm
Shrines. Yeah, they used the word shrines:
Today’s patriotic controversy, appropriately enough given the holiday, concerns presidential libraries. Specifically, the location for the one that will be built for Barack Obama once he leaves office.
Late last month, a foundation was createdto oversee the whole enterprise; the hope is to select a home for the library by early 2015. “Our mission is to build a library that tells President Obama’s remarkable story in an interactive way that will inspire future generations to become involved in public service,” says Marty Nesbitt, an Obama pal and one …
Gingrich calls for Sec. Kerry to resign over global warming remarks
19 Feb 2014 8:55 pm
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich is calling for the resignation of Sec. of State John Kerry after he called global warming the “world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.” It’s as outrageous a statement as I’ve read:
Gingrich, a failed Republican presidential candidate, tweeted out his disgust with Kerry’s comments (Note: He spells Kerry’s name wrong in the tweets):
Does kerrey really believe global warming more dangerous than north Korean and iranian nukes? More than Russian and Chinese nukes? Really? ?
— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) February 18, 2014
On his trip to Indonesia, Kerry said that global …
FBI Docs: Alleged Islamic Terrorist Training Compound Discovered In Rural Texas
19 Feb 2014 8:42 pm
There’s a lot of ground out there. Wouldn’t be hard to set something up and have it go unseen:
The Clarion Project has unearthed Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
MOA stands for Muslims of the Americas, which is linked to …
Unreal: Missouri Republican Appropriates $8 To Buy “Tin Foil Hats” for Common Core Opponents
19 Feb 2014 8:17 pm
I was just doing a search on Twitter for tweets related to yesterday’s anti-Common Core rally at the Missouri state capitol when I saw this tweet from Collin Reischman:
Lair appropriated $8 to purchase tin foil hats, taking a jab at opponents to Common Core. #YesThisIsTrue #moleg

At first I was like:
