Liberals work hard to sow discord between black and white Americans, encourage divisiveness and discord at every turn, and regularly attribute run-of-the-mill political disagreements to racism.
Since almost the moment Obama celebrated his re-election with Republican leader John Boehner by proposing to raise taxes on all of us, liberals have been proved wrong. Not just wrong, but really, really, seriously wrong.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. We get it. Obama is brilliant. . . If that's true, can we have some less brilliant people try running the country? Also, Michael Tanner – from Cato – joined the show to discuss the Obamacare implementation train wreck.
Rebel Forces are now blaming the Syrian government for another chemical attack. They also claimed the Syrian air force bombed a hospital. . . Somebody might be overplaying their hand.
After hearing the most recent commentary regarding Apple, Inc., I’m absolutely convinced that stock analysts, prior to hanging their shingle on Wall Street, are required to attend The Pavlovian Institute for Classical Stock Analyst Conditioning. Here’s how I believe it works.
For example, some employers have figured out how to avoid Obamacare while still providing health insurance. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the crowd in Washington is diligently working to make the law worse.
Don't blame corporations or minimum wage laws. Blame the Fed, central bankers, fractional reserve lending, and Congressional silliness including Obamacare.
On September 11, 1973 the Chilean military led by General Augusto Pinochet slapped Fidel Castro so smartly that his Stalinist regime (and its dutiful U.S. Media minions) are still sniveling and sniffling and wiping away tears of shock, pain and humiliation.
It cannot be lost on anyone that the Affordable Healthcare Act is resulting in business and personal decisions not desired by either the authors of the legislation or those who voted for its passage.
Here's how the Obama folks have been starting to spin Syria.
You may say that there is no discrimination against Christians in America or casually dismiss it because Christians need no protection here because this is allegedly a Christian nation.
President Obama has apparently decided to change another of Ronald Reagan's policies. President Reagan famously said "Trust but Verify" when dealing with the Russians. With President Obama, our new policy will be to "Trust the Russians to Verify" whether Syria's Assad has complied with UN directives on chemical weapons.
It would be wrong to say that our president's policy toward the continuing crisis, calamity and crack-up in Syria -- a disaster now rippling out far beyond that country -- has been disappointing. Disappointment implies that something better was expected.
President Barack Obama is back on his heels and that is a dangerous place to be. The more foreign leaders he met with, the more made it clear they were not going to be helpful in Syria. The more White House staff he sent to the Hill, the fewer Members and Senators were convinced.
Secretary of State John Kerry said the situation in Syria is "not a game" for the Obama Administration. Of course it's not. . . When playing a “game”, one generally arms themselves with a game plan; not to mention a vague idea of what constitutes “victory.”
Another day, another SEC investigation. It seems like the Government has their hands busy harassing the few people in this economy who actually produce wealth. Lou Basenese, founder of Wall Street Daily, also spoke with John about the inside stories of Wall Street.
Pandora Media has selected digital-advertising veteran Brian McAndrews as its new CEO, Chairman and President.
Well, now we can add something else to the list, though it won’t surprise anybody who has been to the Post Office, DMV, or tried to generate any sort of action from a government agency.
There are many ways to evaluate the stock market, from fundamental research to examination of charts or even the alignment of planets, but when I hear the media bang the drums over and over again about the top 1%, it gives me the feeling stocks are going higher.
What many Americans may not know is that the substance that is poured into millions of American fuel tanks every year can no longer be classified as gasoline.
In the era of "warmonger" Republicans in the White House, the Toronto International Film Festival would have been fertile ground for bold, outspoken "dissent" from actors against war in the Middle East. Now with Obama on the brink of missile attacks in Syria, you would expect the same agitation, but this time coupled with a dash of betrayal.
Twelve years ago today, we were staring at smoking rubble in downtown Manhattan and at the Pentagon, counting the dead, wondering who had committed this atrocity and why, fearful of what they might do next, uncertain how to proceed. How far have we come since then?
Out of the corner of my eye, as I was passing a television, I saw a plane fly into a building. The sound was not on, and I thought, it must be a small plane and a small building. An errant pilot or a plane with failing equipment that crashed when it intended to land.
It’s past time to do away with the throwaway holiday of Labor Day. Let the Marxists keep May Day, if they wish. Instead, perhaps on the first Monday in September we should remember things that matter, like those people who died in the 9/11 tragedy.
Yes, I realize Newt Gingrich is not house speaker and is instead now a talking head on a cable news network. And yes, I realize that the economy is really not that great. But a familiar pattern, with a slight variation, may be repeating itself, and it might serve as a positive shot in the economic arm of the nation.
So this is what our society has come to. Within a 10-day period, sportscaster Craig James was fired by Fox Sports for comments he had made against homosexuality during a political campaign last year while Keith Olbermann was lauded for his 9-minute anti-Russia, pro-homosexuality rant on ESPN.
The benefit change mirrors an identical decision made by IBM last week, and is attributed to rising healthcare costs.
A burgeoning new ideology has entered the scene as the debate over whether America should go to war in Syria rages on. It is called "Responsibility to Protect" or R2P.
I have written many articles in the past about what a great stock Visa (V) is. Well finally, somebody else besides me must also think it is a great company because it was just added to the DOW Jones Industrial Average.
The US promise to not attack Assad would amount to a protection agreement because the rebels will not promise to hand over chemical weapons. Yesterday, even so-called moderate rebel groups announced that they recognized Israel as their enemy and would attack it if they came to power.
Back in 2012, I reported on some academic research showing that Democrats lost about 25 seats in the 2010 mid-term elections because of support for Obamacare.
Colorado Just recalled two Legislators for supporting tough new gun laws; but the problem, according to the Denver-based liberal who coasted into the Governor’s mansion, is that the average voter was too dumb to realize government’s benevolence.
No one expects the wheels of government to move fast. Washington’s pace can easily be compared to Beltway traffic in the morning: gridlock that is intermittently interrupted by small bursts of movement.
UNITED 93 (2006) is a movie that holds a strange, moving place in American film history. It is a film that is not often shown on television (cable or non-cable channels) and a film that sadly, hasn’t been embraced by the film world as the modern Classic and testament that it is.
President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have successfully maneuvered us into a position where Syria and its strongest ally, Russia, have exclusive rights to determine how, what, where and when to deal with the chemical weapons that (a) Putin said there was no proof Assad ever used, and (b) Assad denies he has ever had.
Today, as we pause to remember those who lost their lives 12 years ago in the most savage attacks on U.S. civilians in American history, we might also reflect on what else has been lost in the aftermath of those acts of terrorism.
The consensus is that the president took a terrible situation and made it worse with what Bill Kristol called a “mini-Munich” speech, a continuation and amplification of what Joe Scarborough termed a Mr. Magoo foreign policy.
When we last checked in on Barack Obama discussing Benghazi on the network news, he was reassuring Brian Williams on the Oct. 25 "Rock Center" that "we're going to do a full investigation." It's a heater later, and it's still "we are going to." Last fall, Williams and Obama posed as curious for answers on how this disaster happened. Neither of them has demonstrated any noticeable curiosity since.
Liberals have, in 50 years, morphed from the idealism of Camelot to the reality-game show hostness of Al Sharpton.
At the end of this month, members of Congress will face a binary choice. The House and Senate will pass a bill to fund the government past Sept. 30, the last day of the fiscal year. That bill will either permit or prohibit funding for implementation of Obamacare. Members will need to vote for it or against it.
Seventy years ago, this week, the Western Allies launched their first amphibious assault on mainland Europe, as American soldiers in the U.S. Army's 36th Infantry Division (Texas Division) landed under fire on a beach south of Salerno, Italy.
Barack Obama's rapid plunge into economic, fiscal and foreign policy chaos has dealt a huge political blow to his long-troubled presidency.
According to a recent New York Times poll, just 30 percent of Americans think the United States should launch air strikes against Syria to punish its government's use of chemical weapons, while twice as many oppose the idea. Evidently, America is overrun with isolationists.
I can’t stress enough how much I would like Jack Lew to run my household expenses. Apparently the Federal Government ran a $146 billion deficit in the month of August without adding a single dollar to the total National Debt. . . And I'm sure all the related accounting is "on the level."
It is becoming more and more apparent that our illustrious leaders have no idea what they’re doing. Syria, quantitative easing, historic recalls. . . Tom Tancredo, possible future governor of Colorado, joined the program to discuss the disconnect between the government and the citizens.
The perversely named “Stop Online Piracy Act” (SOPA) itself may have been the most brazen attempted act of piracy in all recorded history. Truth in Legislation would have required it to be named the “Ultimate Act of Online Piracy.”
As occurs whenever a Christian village is captured by rebel forces, the fighters looted and burned the churches as well as the Christian homes. Government forces were reported to be preparing to retake the village on 9 September.
The German election is on September 22. And with 12 days remaining, things do not look good for a Grand Coalition headed by Merkel.
Sarah is a beautiful three-year-old. She loves Honey Nut Cheerios, nursery rhymes, and playing on the playground. But lately, it almost breaks her mother’s heart to see Sarah out there with the other kids.
I cannot see why even a single American, a single Israeli or a single Syrian civilian should be killed as a result of a token U.S. military action, undertaken simply to spare Barack Obama the embarrassment of doing nothing, after his ill-advised public ultimatum to the Syrian government to not use chemical weapons was ignored.
Chickens are coming home to roost for Barack Obama, both at home and overseas. When he first entered the White house, to worldwide acclaim, and backed by huge majorities in both the Senate and the House of Representatives, he could do whatever he wanted -- and could do no wrong, in the eyes of the mainstream media.
While President Barack Obama and Congress pontificate over whether Syrian President Bashar Assad used chemical weapons on his own people and whether a limited U.S. attack on Syria would be justified, what Washington needs to realize is this: Assad launched sarin on its citizens in hopes of moving the U.S. like a chess piece into his civil war and deeper onto the Middle East war map.
Who made the list?
Do you ever get the idea that this nation is not only in decline but completely rudderless under the Obama administration? Well, it's not really rudderless; it only appears rudderless because Obama isn't pursuing the same goals as past presidents.
Will Obama just rewrite the regulations to make union members magically eligible for Obamacare subsidies, as in: “Look, we just found the ‘Lost Pages’ of the Obamacare legislation that we accidentally left on the copier for these four years. Hurray! Union members ARE eligible”?
The economic problems that this country faces are escalating.
Will the California Legislature point a giant middle finger at Bay Area commuters by naming the western span of the Bay Bridge after San Francisco Chronicle columnist Willie Brown even though, as San Francisco's mayor, Brown unconscionably delayed reconstruction of the seismically challenged eastern span and helped drive the project's cost from $1.5 billion to $6.4 billion?
The young bodies wrapped in white linen winding sheets. Dozens of them.
So much for the long-anticipated U.S.-Syrian smasheroo, with missiles and accusations flying through the air. The whole thing appears, unexpectedly, to have ended before properly beginning. Or at least we are entitled to guess that on the basis of Monday developments.
Based on the dismal data from the Minneapolis Federal Reserve (as well as our own experiences), we know Obamanomics doesn’t work in the United States. And we know it doesn’t work in Japan. We know it doesn’t work in Spain. We know it doesn’t work in Argentina. We know it doesn’t work in Greece. . .
Many people believe demographics explains the decline in the workforce. However, that's not the case.
Gayle Trotter, from the Independent Women’s Forum, joined the program to discuss the increasingly ignored issue of Obamacare. Also, it looks like war might just be the beginning of the problem in the Middle East.
Isis Pharmaceuticals will receive $100 million from Biogen Idec in a six-year agreement to develop treatments for neurological disorders, and up to $220 million thereafter for each new drug compound.
All across the country, state governors are under tremendous pressure to accept federal funds for expansion of their state Medicaid programs. Most of this originates in Washington and the Obama administration, but much is local and comes from special interests such as hospitals.
That was a pretty consistent message around the Ramsey household as the kids were growing up. If you’re not working and making your own way, you’ve got nothing.
I became upset when I got word. Jeep, reports Automotive News, is shifting its focus away from hearty off-road 4X4's to, mostly, dinky little two-wheel-drive cars that ride smoothly on paved roads - the kind of cars Europeans like to drive.
Where in the world is America, as Syria descends into utter carnage? This is the question nations are asking of us. Like it or not, America is the world’s conscience, defender of humanity, democracy and warrior against evil.
It’s rare these days to have the opportunity to send both a principled conservative and someone brandishing the pre-attained experience necessary to make an impact on Day 1.
Why are we talking about Syria when the real enemy is Iran?
An important new book has recently been published which addresses the question of global poverty, but does so by provoking the reader to also consider our own nation and demand that we better understand ourselves and the wellsprings of our own success.
Lt. Clint Lorance needs your help. He is an American war hero who was unjustly sentenced to 20 years confinement, forfeiture of all pay, and dismissal from the U.S. Army because the Obama administration is apparently trying to appease the Afghan government.
Good news in the short run doesn’t mean good news in the long run if greedy politicians decide to loot the wealth accumulated in personal retirement accounts.
Investors are increasingly coming to believe that Schrödinger's Cat is over three-quarters dead.
Among the national chains and franchisees that have announced that Obamacare is forcing them to reduce employee hours: Applebee’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, Del Taco, Denny’s, FatBurger, Five Guys, Hardee’s, IHOP, Olive Garden, Wendy’s, and White Castle.
In the last 100 years we have only managed to increase the world temperature by .8 degrees Celsius. Try as we might, the Amazon rainforest is still around, and we have yet to see California erode into the Pacific Ocean. C’mon people. . . This is America! We can do better.
Julian Bond, famous civil rights activist, wrote an article in USA Today this year on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. His selective memory pointed out the similarities of today’s economic woes of blacks to those of the 1960s.
The buzz in the Middle East media is that the real reason President Obama changed his mind about striking Syria last week was not, in fact, that he is indecisive.
Dear Comrade Beatrice: Being a liberal, you were probably thrown off by the fact that the Post Office is one of the few agencies of the federal government that derives its power explicitly from the Constitution of the United States of America.
“So, what did you do during your summer break?”
Y’know, I wouldn’t have a hard time believing that the U.S.A “needs” to blow into Syria and rain hellfire down upon Assad and his ilk except for the following.
The nation will soon know whether or not President Obama will authorize a strike on Syrian military forces. What he will tell us on Tuesday evening, few can factually predict. But if the outcome of his deliberative process does not pose his favored verdict, no one would be surprised if he just did as he originally wished to begin with.
Their goal is government dependency. They want as many people as possible to be on the government dole so that eventually the system collapses under its own weight.
Inquiring minds note that Obama plans a 'full-court press' to sway Congress and a speech to US citizens on September 10.
July 2012 marks the zero point for the inflation phase of the new housing bubble, with its expansion really beginning to take off in August 2012.
Downsizing Government has a new tool allowing readers to chart spending for more than 500 federal agencies with the click of a mouse. It’s pretty cool. Hopefully it will help citizens, reporters, and policymakers understand how the budget has grown to a colossal $3.5 trillion a year.
Ambassador Kevin Brady, from the People’s Republic of Texas, joined the program to discuss the future of the Federal Reserve.
