On Thursday, the White House marked the death of 95-year-old South African leader Nelson Mandela with a picture of Barack Obama next to a quote attributed to the president on Twitter.
“Rest in peace, Nelson Mandela,” the tweet said.
Maybe that’s a tad optimistic. Maybe we’re just starting the battle for Gondor. Or something; you figure out what LOTR analogy you prefer.
Perhaps the moment is the much earlier one (in the trilogy) when the sword of Elendil is re-forged. OK, OK, I’ll stop.
What I’m suggesting is that we’ve reached a turning point. At PJ Media, Roger Simon asks, “What if it’s all true?” He’s referring to the numerous reports of fact, large and small – some well established, some not – that added together mean “President Barack Obama” is a walking lie Continue reading
In a speech Wednesday, President Obama “declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of ‘all’ of the White House’s efforts ‘for the rest of my presidency.’” But he offered nothing new to advance that goal. Instead, he just peddled stale proposals from the past, such as increased government handouts, that do nothing to expand the opportunity to earn a good living.
For example, he “called for an extension of emergency unemployment benefits,” even though “House Republicans have signaled they likely will not support an extension,” noted The Hill newspaper.
In a recent speech championing immigration reform, President Obama said, “I’m not running for office again. I just believe it is the right thing to do.”
Given the number of times Obama has publicly stated that his name will never be on another ballot, he’s beginning to sound like a broken record.
For starters, you’re to be forgiven if you didn’t know that the Department of Health and Human Services launched a competition in August titled the “Healthy Young America Video Contest.” You’re also to be forgiven if you didn’t know that the grand prize of $2,000 (gee, I wonder whose money that is) was awarded Monday to one Erin McDonald, whose entry appears after the break:
One has to be sparing with exclamation points, but this one’s a lollapalooza. A dilly! A doozie. A big honkin’ mess-a that Middle East Security Hotness. You heard right folks: the United States of America has a “West Bank security proposal” for Israel, and we’re sending a retired Army general to present it to Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, himself. !!!!!!!!!!
Why did no one think of this before? Finally, someone has done something pragmatic and positive about the Israeli-Palestinian standoff, and just written up a proposal for the Israelis to chew on already. The Obama administration has at last gotten things off top dead center with Iran, and it’s time to tackle Continue reading
War clouds are gathering in the East China Sea as the Beijing government as sent a none-too-veiled threat to Tokyo over the now-disputed international airspace, as well as airspace over sovereign Japanese soil at the very south of the East Asian nation, as reported by The Washington Free Beacon on Dec. 3, 2013.
Barack Obama is making good on a promise he first gave utterance to during one of the Democratic primary debates leading up the 2008 presidential election. When asked whether he would meet with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, and Cuba, without precondition, Obama said he would, explaining:
Remember Obama Money? Unlike Obamaphones, Obama Money didn’t really exist, though thousands of ignorant Detroiters lined up for free cash in the early months of his presidency. When asked where the money would come from, one of the people on the street answered, “I don’t know — his stash.”
Despite his administration’s seizure of Associated Press phone records this past May, Barack Obama still clearly has friends at the AP. One of them, Darlene Superville, was willing to risk ridicule by delivering up a bit of fluff on Monday under the title “5 New Things About President Obama.”
“This has been a cover up from the very beginning…”
Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) has taken the political fist fight between Congressional Republicans and Barack Obama to the next level when he accused the Administration of taking “lying to a new level,” as reported by CNN on Dec.2, 2013.
Speaking at an on-line interview tagged a “Google Hangout session,” the number two Republican in the U.S. Senate opened fire on the current White House scandal regarding questions of honesty and transparency from the Obama Administration swirling around the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya which resulted in the deaths of four Americans.
According to the State Department, the United States expects our airline carriers will comply with the ADIZ rules laid out by China in the Notice to Airmen announcing enforcement of the ADIZ.
As with the distinction we are observing with respect to Iran’s right to enrich uranium, our acceptance of the ADIZ rules does not mean we agree with them, according to the State Department formulation. It just means Continue reading
