Video: GOP Congressmen Put the Heat on Obama’s “Drunken Uncle Omar”

Barack Obama's "Uncle Omar" may have gotten out of jail following his drunk driving arrest last month, but some Republican congressmen want to cross-examine him -- and Obama's stealth amnesty program -- themselves. Rep. Steve King of Iowa, one of the staunchest critics of illegal immigration, said Monday, "We have to bring drunken 'Uncle Omar' in front of the House Judiciary Committee, drill … [Read more...]

Obama Blames Bureaucracy, Bush for Solyndra Cronyism

In the wake of the growing Solyndra scandal, the Obama administration is playing the familiar card that its inside deal-making and cronyism really amount to nothing more than bureaucratic mistakes that should be blamed on his Republican predecessor. Like the Black Panther case dismissal, left-wing spinmeisters are pinning the Solyndra loan guarantee on the career federal employees the Obama … [Read more...]

Did Valerie Jarrett Push Corrupt Solyndra Loan Deal?

Americans are demanding to know why the Obama administration extended a $535 million taxpayer-funded loan guarantee to Solyndra Inc. after officials in the waning days of the Bush administration unanimously vetoed the deal. Why would political appointees push career analysts, who knew the material best, to finance the troubled green energy firm whose product, solar energy panels, cost twice as … [Read more...]

Was Solyndra an Impeachable Offense?

The Obama administration's Solyndra scandal goes beyond pressuring career federal employees to approve a $535 million loan guarantee to a company largely held by an Obama crony. When the government restructured the loan in February, officials appear to have broken the law by allowing the company's private investors to recoup their funds before U.S. taxpayers get their money back. Much of the … [Read more...]

Videos: Obama Lied About Troops on the Ground in Libya

This author has observed, "If the media wanted to conserve resources, they could simply fuse the words 'The Obama administration lied' to the opening line of each day’s edition and fill in the blank appropriately." Today proved no exception. Despite President Barack Obama's assurances that no ground troops would ever be sent to Libya, the Pentagon confirmed Monday that U.S. soldiers are on the … [Read more...]

Video: Herman Cain’s 9/11 Tribute Drives Liberals Crazy (Well, Crazier)

Only Republican presidential candidate and former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain could drive the Left out of its gourd by doing nothing more than singing a 93-year-old American anthem. His campaign has released a 9/11 tribute video, featuring Cain himself singing "God Bless America" -- originally written by Irving Berlin in 1918 -- over a compilation of unforgettable images that the day's … [Read more...]

Gary Johnson Grabs the GOP’s Third Rail: Cutting Military Spending

Every political epoch has one: a third rail, an issue so electric that any mention of it tends to close discussion and slam doors rather than broaden discourse and widen debate. For 65 years, increased military spending has been the sacred cow no politician hoping to capture the Republican presidential nomination dared question. Although GOP stalwarts favored cutting every other area of … [Read more...]

Colorado Govt. Official’s Op-Ed: Impeach Obama

The Impeach Obama Campaign marches forward. The most recent government official to sign on is former Eagle County, Colorado, Commissioner Dick Gustafson. Gustafson wrote an op-ed in the Vail (Colorado) Daily entitled, "The Case for Impeaching Obama." Increasing citizen activism against Obama's lawless administration is the only way our elected officials will know we will not tolerate another day … [Read more...]

King Obama’s War Put Al-Qaeda-Linked Extremist in Charge of Tripoli

Barack Obama may not believe in fundamentalist Islam, but most of the people helped by his foreign policy do. The most recent beneficiary of Obama's “success” in Libya is a former CIA detainee with links to al-Qaeda. The National Transitional Council (NTC) -- the governing body representing "the rebels" in Libya -- elected Abdel Hakim Belhaj commander of the Tripoli Military Council last … [Read more...]

Obama Snubbed the VFW, But Not These Groups

While Barack Obama is the first president not to personally address or assign a top-tier representative to the Veterans of Foreign Wars' annual convention, not every organization has received the same shabby treatment as the military. White House spokesman Adam Abrams claimed Obama snubbed the VFW because he "receives many speaking requests throughout the year, but he is unable to meet them all."  … [Read more...]
