Obama’s Downgrade May Last Until 2029

Obama scored another historical first on Friday, becoming the first president to see the U.S. credit rating downgraded by Standard & Poor's, from AAA to AA+. While we hope his presidential reign lasts no longer than January 2013, Americans may have to live with the consequences of Obamanomics for more than a decade to come. The chairman of Standard & Poor’s sovereign debt ratings, John … [Read more...]

House Democrats, Media are Pressing Obama Toward Impeachment

Historians agree empires and presidencies die from imperial overreach. Now Barack Obama's closest allies in the Democratic Party, the far-Left, and the media are encouraging him to take actions that will lead inexorably to his impeachment. The president's hubris and lawlessness seem destined to collide with Washington's tense polemical atmosphere in a showdown that will put his presidency on the … [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...]

Barry Bars the Door: Christians Have No Escape from Obama’s New, Gay Military

Psychological warfare is a vital component of any war. Breaking the will of the enemy and keeping your own troops motivated may help an unorganized enemy’s victory seem “inevitable,” however one must twist the truth in the process. This makes control of the media, with its ability to distract and redirect the nation’s attention, imperative. Luckily for Barack Obama, he has just this support in his … [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...]

The Huffington Post Gets Punk’d

The Huffington Post receives millions from George Soros' allies, AOL, and advertising revenue. But it cannot fact check its articles. Another takedown of the elite media by a citizen journalist. Despite a newfound reputation as an unbiased news source, an influx of hundreds of millions of dollars, and the new ownership of a massive media conglomerate, The Huffington Post is apparently … [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...]

Obama Is Secretly Talking With The Taliban, Says It’s What Reagan Would Do

With Islamic riots, skyrocketing deficits, and state-skipping Democratic legislators hogging the headlines, this item has not yet gotten the attention it deserves. Steve Coll writes in The New Yorker, “The Obama Administration has entered into direct, secret talks with senior Afghan Taliban leaders, several people briefed about the talks told me last week.” Obama mentioned reaching out to “Taliban … [Read more...]

Obama Threw “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Case

The voice of Terry Jones threatening to burn 200 Korans drowned out most other news last week, so some may be unaware that U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips ruled Thursday that the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy was unconstitutional. Phillips, who was appointed to the bench by Bill Clinton, claimed excluding homosexuals from the military violated the First and Fifth Amendments, … [Read more...]
