Shocking: Liberal PC politics imperil US citizens

January 21, 2016

Democrats play dangerous political games with national security

As Obama vows to accept 10,000 additional Syrian refugees this year, on Wednesday Senate Democrats —- by a vote of 55 to 43 —- rejected a bill to require vetting of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, an attempt to verify they posed no security risk before entering the US.

Obama threatened to veto the bill.

The American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act of 2015 or the American SAFE Act of 2015 should have passed with overwhelming support of both parties.


Reality comes to small Mississippi town

January 10, 2016

Heightened concerns front and center after ongoing terrorist attacks

Supplanting emotions with a healthy dose of judiciousness, Aldermen in the tiny rural town of Louise, Mississippi — with a population of about 200 — have decided to withdraw a resolution to open its doors to refugees.

By a vote of 3-1 on Wednesday, the officials reversed their original statement which said, “This town’s governing body fears no threat, but rather feels its Christian duty and obligation to divine providence which has led this great nation from its founding to contribute relief for these poor peoples’ needs.”

 In November, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant joined this growing list of governors who have stated they will continue to oppose resettling Syrian refugees in their states, despite repeated assurances from the Obama administration that the resettlement program can be trusted. The governors’ announcements followed the terrorist attacks in Paris that left 129 people dead and hundreds wounded. Other attacks have followed, including ISIS-based carnage here on American soil.

The Clarion-Ledger quotes Bryant as saying he will do “everything humanly possible to stop any plans from the Obama Administration to put Syrian refugees in Mississippi.”

 Although Obama plans to bring at least 10,000 Syrians to the United States in 2016, FBI director James Comey has told a House Committee on Homeland Security that the federal government does not have the ability to conduct thorough background checks on all of the Syrian refugees that the president says will be allowed to enter the U.S.

“If someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database,” Comey said, “we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing show up because we have no record of them.”


Philly Mayor’s bizarre reaction to ISIS inspired police shooter

January 9, 2016

CBS 3 Philly carries the report including the graphic photo of a gunman wearing what was described as Islamic garb brazenly attempting to assassinate a Philadelphia police officer in his squad car. The self-admitted ISIS inspired shooter has confessed to the act of depravity as the lone officer was making late night routine rounds.  

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney‘s response is mind-boggling. “There are just too many guns on the streets and I think our national government needs to do something about that,” he said.

The newly elected Democrat obviously missed the fact that the armed officer was able to save his own life and shoot his would-be murderer due to the fact that he was armed. It’s not “too many guns” that’s the problem. Gun violence is perpetrated by criminals not gun-owning, law-abiding citizens who are guaranteed their rights under the Second Amendment.

Kenney’s statement supports the skewed overreaches of Barack Obama, who announced yet another executive action earlier this week —bypassing Congress — to increase restrictions on gun owners and sales of firearms. Anyone “in the business” of selling guns also applies to a private citizen selling a firearm to his sister. Under current law, federally licensed firearms dealers are required to conduct background checks on potential firearm purchasers, but the executive action expands the definition of gun dealers.

In office less than a week, Mayor Kenney, who is assigned his own security detail, spent his first day reinstating dangerous sanctuary city policies which shelter illegal criminals from federal enforcement. Emulating Obama, Kenney signed inane executive orders, including one establishing the politically correct position of Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer — despite the astronomical rise in the violent crime rate in the Democrat run city once known as the City of Brotherly Love.

According to  this ABC 6 Action News coverage, the 2015 citywide murder and violence rate continued to skyrocket, with 692 people shot and 161 murdered by August.

Albert Einstein has been quoted as saying  the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. That’s a message the voters of Philadelphia should take to heart.

Obama’s brazen anti-gun agenda stifles 2nd Amendment

January 5, 2016

Arrogant executive action usurping congressional powers latest in series ranging from climate change to illegal immigration

The imperial Barack Obama, increasingly inclined to govern unilaterally — bypassing congress by use of his regal twins executive orders, and issuances of Presidential Memoranda is at it again.

This time instead of cozying up to communist dictators in Cuba and colluding to expand nuclear capabilities to Islamic madmen in Iran, he’s playing hardball with the U.S. Constitution. In attempting to curtail our Second Amendment freedoms, the lame duck president fully exposes what many Americans have long regarded as his contempt of our liberty.

Obama’s overreaches have resulted in a record number of firearms-related background checks — well over 23-million — last year. Records indicate that more guns were sold in 2015 than in any previous year in American history. In December alone, the FBI conducted 3,314,594 background checks, an increase of more than half a million checks over the previous single-month record set in December 2012.

Simply put, gun and ammo sales are surging because Americans have no confidence the government can protect them and their families and actually fear Obama’s repressive tactics.

Among Obama’s proposed firearm restrictions, curbs on gun purchases would extend to those accused of violence against current or former dating partners or those with temporary restraining orders. A gun-possession ban for Social Security beneficiaries who are believed incapable of handling their own finances is also included.

On Monday, Jan. 4, Barack Obama released this multi-pronged FACT SHEET: New Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence. Individual sales between two people will require the seller be a registered, licensed dealer, and submit to a background check any time they sell a gun from their private collection. Assessing mental health has become the purview of the government as doctors are asked to become informants.  

Hypocrisy is rampant. As they propose to diminish our Second Amendment rights, Obama and his family and the Clinton’s are secure with armed secret service protection.  Seeing Red AZ posted “Dem gun hypocrites,” in Dec. 2012, detailing the congressional liberals and double talking,  left-wing celebrities who have concealed carry permits and own firearms — which they support restricting us from accessing.   

The Second Amendment is about much more than simply carrying concealed, hunting, or sport shooting. Our right to keep and bear arms is a bulwark against tyranny.

So, it’s time for a bit of fun…or maybe not

January 3, 2016

Each year for the past 41 years, the wordsmiths at Lake Superior State University issue their List of Banished Words and Phrases.

The first list of words and phrases that people love to hate was compiled at a New Year’s Eve party in 1975, and published on Jan. 1, 1976.

The 2016 list of overused, incorrectly used and those that fall into the category of general uselessness can be viewed here beginning with the ubiquitous and meaningless “So” as a sentence starter. The history of Word Banishment is also entertaining.

We have added the following few and our astute readers are welcome to join in with their own selections of annoying words and phrases. Have some fun….it’s the weekend.

  1. WENT MISSING: Oddly used in news reports to describe someone who has disappeared. FELL ILL is similarly strange.
  2. AWESOME AND AMAZING: Teens with limited vocabularies inappropriately overuse these words. But when mature adults declare their kids or grandkids fall into the realm of “amazing,” or their truck is “awesome,“ we suggest finding new acquaintances.
  3. REALTOR®: This is the correct spelling of the trademarked word.  It does not have an “I” between the “L” and “T.”
  4. AT THE END OF THE DAY: Unless you’re in the cast of Les Misérables, steer clear of this cliché. Besides, it belongs to Karl Rove.
  5. MYSELF: Maeve Maddox the “American English Doctor” gives some outstanding advice regarding the misuse of personal pronouns in this section “Myself is Not the same as Me or I.”

Tomorrow we return to the hard news. Barack Obama has just returned from his lengthy annual Christmas Hawaiian vacation and is prepared to move aggressively — bypassing Congress —  to increase federal controls over American gun owners, restricting our Second Amendment Rights. His ultimate intent appears to be disarming and leaving us vulnerable in these most perilous of times.


2016: The most important election of our lifetimes

January 1, 2016

Gird your loins! We’ve got work to do!

This New Year brings with it both opportunity and obligation.

Barack Obama, who has worked double-time* to weaken our nation and circumvent the U.S. Constitution that ensures our freedoms, will be termed out and a new — hopefully conservative Republican president — will be elected.

It’s our duty as responsible citizens to do all we can to inform ourselves about the issues and work to get out the vote this time as we never have before.  Apathy will enable the untrustworthy Hillary to return to the White House — this time calling the shots and making key appointments. Of vital importance are the Supreme Court vacancies that will occur as justices in their 80‘s leave the bench. The 2016 election will place in office a person with the potential to change the face of SCOTUS for decades to come.

Conservatives are justifiably disheartened by the collusive actions of House Speaker Paul Ryan and the GOP majority, who surrendered to Congressional Democrats on the $1.8 trillion tax and spending Omnibus Appropriations Act —- giving them all the bloat they and Obama desired.

We’ve seen what happens when our presidential choices are limited to unreliable, establishment squish candidates such as Mitt Romney, John McCain or Bob Dole. As GOP posers, U.S. House “leaders” John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell and their ilk have clearly demonstrated that it’s not only Democrats who are betraying us.

These are perilous times. As global atrocities committed in the name of Islam are given short shrift, we witness Barack Obama calling ISIS a “contained JV team;” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton exposed as deceiving us about the carnage in Benghazi; and current Secretary of State John Kerry capitulating Neville Chamberlain-like, on guaranteeing a nuclear capable Iran.

We’ve got our work cut out for us.

New Year 2016: Obama transforms America

December 31, 2015

Happy_New_Year

As we embark upon this New Year, there is no better time to renew our acquaintance with America’s founding documents: The Declaration of Independence, our U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

They have served us well. The least we can do is stay familiar with what they contain, hold our Republican House and Senate majorities accountable and ensure that our children know what blessings we have been given as a nation.

Then ponder this census clock, which gives us all something to think about:

One birth every 8 seconds — One death every 12 seconds — One “international migrant” (net) every 29 seconds.

May God bless us all in the coming year.
