Tim Pawlenty: We Need More, Bigger Unconstitutional Wars!

In election years, candidates inevitably promise voters they will do more than their opponents. In practice that usually means increased debt-spending and expanding unconstitutional encroachments on liberty. Now one Republican presidential candidate has doubled-down on the most blatantly illegal action of this presidency, saying Barack Obama has not gone far enough in waging war-by-decree in Libya … [Read more...]

Obama Lies About Stealth Amnesty, TSA Cancer; Media Bash Bachmann

Before the invention of movable type, newspapers created a tablet for each page they wished to print and broke it at the end of the day. 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. This week alone, the press exposed Obama administration lies -- in some … [Read more...]

Golfing While the Constitution Burns

by Ben Johnson When Barack Obama and John Boehner played golf this weekend, they played on the same team. How appropriate. Barack Obama has violated the Constitution’s war-making power – reserved by Article I, Section 8, to Congress – from the moment he sent American troops into harm’s way without Congressional approval. He has been violating the War Powers Resolution since at least the … [Read more...]

Wrong Boehner; Obama is Breaking the Law Right Now

by Ben Johnson Only in the liberal media can a weak entreaty to obey the law be considered an act of political warfare. The media have portrayed House Speaker John Boehner’s letter to Barack Obama, merely asking the president for another legal explanation for his war-by-decree in Libya, as “ratcheting up the pressure.” The New York Times correctly noted, “it is not clear if [Boehner’s … [Read more...]

Boehner Wimps Out on Libya

by Ben Johnson The moment would be surreal were it not so reminiscent: An arrogant Democratic president had committed an impeachable offense, lied to the American people, and dared Congress to do anything about it. Incensed congressmen of both parties asked, negotiated, and threatened until they realized they had no alternative but to take action. Then, the Republican leadership stepped in to … [Read more...]

Obama: America Was Not a “Great Country,” 1776-1965

As the nation digests Barack Obama's plan to ride a tax hike to re-election, one phrase from yesterday's budget speech confirms what this author has long stated: the president is fundamentally an anti-American Messianic figure who believes he was sent to save our nation from itself and its Founders. Speaking a line that was written in advance, approved by multiple layers of handlers and advisers, … [Read more...]

Lawyer Drafts Articles of Impeachment Over Libya

by Ben Johnson Someone has finally been moved to action by Barack Obama’s increasingly lawless administration. Bruce Fein, a former high-ranking official in the Reagan Justice Department who wrote the first article of impeachment against Bill Clinton, has drawn up formal articles of impeachment against the president. Fein explained the final straw was Obama’s unwise, unauthorized, and … [Read more...]

Reagan Would Not Support Obama on Libya

For some conservatives, the most sacred initials in policymaking are WWRRD: What Would Ronald Reagan Do? Whenever America encounters a situation similar to one faced by the Gipper, they say the proper course is to follow his lead. Barack Obama’s undeclared war in Libya is such a situation, but I’m afraid Republicans are drawing the wrong analogy. When Libyan rebels rose up against Muammar … [Read more...]

Another National Talk Show Host Calls Obama “Impeachable”

The number of people acknowledging that Barack Obama’s lawless actions deserve impeachment has risen by one. Obama’s refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is “impeachable,” according to a nationally syndicated, widely quoted talk show host. Bryan Fischer is director of Issue Analysis for Government and Public Policy at American Family Association and host of “Focal Point,” which is … [Read more...]

Conservative ACORN Expert Endorses Impeachment

Just days after a writer for the prominent blog Pajamas Media wrote that he “wouldn’t put impeachment off the table,” another highly exposed conservative has called for Barack Obama’s impeachment. Matthew Vadum of the Capital Research Center wrote on his Twitter account Thursday, “So many reasons to impeach Obama, now he gives us a new one: DOMA. Like it or not it is the law of the land.” Vadum … [Read more...]
