http://www.americanthinker.com/2014/01/obama_has_made_it_impossible_for_israel_to_strike_iran.html I called a hardheaded realist, a Harvard trained PhD who has been watching the Middle East professionally for decades, to ask him about Obama’s Iran deal. This is what he told me. It’s done. Iran will get a bomb. They want a bomb and they will not be denied unless somebody […]
Not once — not even once — did the man who claims to be the legitimate leader of our nation ever look me, and all the other watching citizens of this nation, in the eye during his State of the Nation speech. He was a dash-top bobble-head, swinging back and forth from prompter to prompter.
Good grief! The man can’t uncouple himself from his comfort-zone technology for even a moment to look Americans in the eye just once, and give us some sense of our comfort that he is sincere.
For those of us who endured the entire speech, it was painfully obvious that our nation is being led by a man who lives and dies by the teleprompter — Teleprompter Rex. It would be exceedingly interesting to see what would transpire should that teleprompter technology crash in the midst of a major speech like this one. Perhaps America would be treated to the real Obama, without the technological defenses that wall him off from we, the unworthy.
Reality is, this affirmative-action president, a man elevated far beyond his capabilities by those who would use him for their own ends, has failed. He’s failed himself, and he’s failed America. Deliciously, he’s failed those who put this puppet into the role of power. He’s failed them because he hasn’t been able to enact their great socialist takeover of America.
http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/01/28/obamas-fifth-state-of-the-union-is-in-the-books/?print=1 How does one critique a speech like tonight’s? It’s like trying to find rational structure in cotton candy. Poke it too much and it’ll just get all over you and make a big mess. Obama is like an actor stepping into a role that is larger than himself – a Brendan Fraser trying to […]
Nearly two years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court smacked down the Environmental Protection Agency in a landmark property rights case. The court ruled that the EPA was overstepping its bounds in going after the Sackett family of Idaho. In 2007 the Sacketts wanted to build their dream home on their own land, but the EPA swept in and tried to stop them, arguing that their land was a “wetland.” It wasn’t a wetland, the Sacketts tried to go to court to win their property rights back, but the EPA ruled that they had no right even to defend themselves in court. The EPA staked out the position that the Sacketts could only deal with the EPA, which had already ruled against them.
The Supreme Court ultimately disagreed with the EPA, and the Sacketts won.
Well, over the course of their suit, the Sacketts worked with an Idaho environmental consulting firm, Kagel Environmental LLC. Kagel provided evidence that the land in question was not a wetland. The DTN Progressive Farmer reports that Kagel Environmental has been subjected to targeting by federal authorities since they worked on the Sackett case.
So, this happened today.
Washington Post reporter Chris Cillizza said that the “Axis of Evil” address was among the most important State of the Union addresses delivered in recent memory. “That speech, arguably, turned this country in a direction on foreign policy,” Mitchell concurred. “Those words, Axis of Evil, I was standing there in Congress and called the control room, I said ‘This is a big deal.’”
“State Department, with all due respect, Colin Powell did not focus enough on those words and get them taken out of the State of the Union,” she continued. “Up until that moment, Iran was cooperating with the United States on the border of Afghanistan, it was post 9/11, Iran was more or less an American ally.”
“But being included in the Axis of Evil, it turned the Iranian government in a completely different direction,” she concluded. “And it was a turning point in American politics and foreign policy.”
Try “less,” Andrea Mitchell. The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza proceeds to agree with Mitchell, that Iran was “more or less an American ally” until the “axis of evil” speech.
It’s just not true. Iran had been an enemy of the United States since the Islamic Revolution in 1979. What part of “Death to America!” and “Death to the Great Satan!” do Mitchell and Cillizza not understand?
Update: Roll the video tape.
These people are the leading lights of political journalism? Seriously, MSNBC and Washington Post, you can’t do better?

On Sunday, a Belleville News-Democrat story featured 11-year-old Chloe Stirling of Troy, Ill., a sixth-grader at Triad Middle School who makes about $200 a month selling cupcakes. On Monday, the long arm of the law — in this case, the Madison County […]
http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/american-presidential-greatness One cannot look at the faces on Mount Rushmore without thinking about what makes a great president. Certainly, a review of the list of those who have held that office reminds us that one does not have to be a genius, a saint, a motivational speaker, a model, a hero, or even law-abiding to […]
http://www.forbes.com/sites/billfrezza/2014/01/28/white-house-income-equality-agenda-makes-war-on-progress White House Income Equality Agenda Makes War On Progress In tonight’s State of the Union Address, Mr. Obama will attempt to shake off the most disastrous year of his presidency by doubling down on his fight to equalize our incomes. Apparently, his advisors convinced him he can breathe fresh life into tax and welfare […]
President Obama will deliver his sixth State of the Union speech tomorrow night. The media will cover it as though it matters, even though hardly anyone is listening and most Americans have little or no confidence in the president. Obama’s fundamental problem, as he discourses on the state of the union, is that the union’s state is palpably worse, after five years, than it was when he took office. So it is hard to take him seriously when he tries to tell us how to make things better.
American Action Network made this video, titled “#EmptySuit.” It is short but packs a punch:
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/14451#.Uujc2bROmUl Why the uproar over Scarlett Johansson? Is it that a prominent Jewish American woman openly supports Israel? This is shocking? Actually it is. Or is that an A-List Hollywood personality – named the “sexiest woman alive” — has found her inner chutzpah and gone rogue against Hollywood’s 99 percent liberal establishment? Note that in […]
