Will Obama Go Fascist on the Debt Ceiling?

by Ben Johnson, The White House Watch Barack Obama has sometimes been fond of branding his Republican foes “hostage-takers,” but officials in his administration have found a new hostage in their negotiations over raising the debt ceiling: the U.S. Constitution. The president’s advisers and several “unbiased” media outlets are suggesting if Congress refuses to raise the debt ceiling, Barack … [Read more...]

Obama: The Lester Maddox of Gay Marriage

by Ben Johnson Although he has grown Washington more than any president in a generation, Barack Obama is talking like a Jeffersonian states rights champion -- in the one night, in the one state, on the one issue that would promote his top-down rejection of traditional morality. As Barack Obama prepares to attend a sold out, $1,250-per-plate campaign fundraiser before a large homosexual group in … [Read more...]

Obama Strikes God from the Declaration Again, Inadvertently Proves the Bible is True

by Ben Johnson This weekend, President Obama once again omitted the Declaration of Independence's reference to the "Creator," this time while celebrating an international sanction of the homosexual and transgender lifestyle. Ironically, in doing so, he proved the truth of the Bible. Last Friday, the UN Human Rights Council passed a resolution authored by South Africa affirming the rights … [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...]

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...]

Congress Ignores Obama’s War-by-Fiat

by Ben Johnson When Barack Obama updated Congress on the war in Libya last Friday, he claimed our role is so limited it does not require Congressional authorization. However, on Monday Hillary Clinton told the European press, “Even today, the United States continues to fly 25 percent of all sorties,” and Obama has promised there will be “no let-up.” Apparently Congress will have no … [Read more...]

King Obama Tramples the Law, Continues Libyan War by Decree

by Ben Johnson In his official notice to Congress that he had unilaterally sent American soldiers into the Libyan war kinetic action, Barack Obama wrote, “I am providing this report as part of my efforts to keep the Congress fully informed, consistent with the War Powers Resolution.” Today, he decided the War Powers Resolution is also disposable. In a letter to Congress today Obama declared … [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...]

King Obama’s War by Decree

“The United States does not have a King’s army. President Obama's unilateral choice to use U.S. military force in Libya is an affront to our Constitution.” – Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Maryland. Barack Obama has gotten away with subjecting a wide swath of national life to unelected czars, bankrupting the country through unconstitutional spending, ignoring judge’s orders, and running roughshod over … [Read more...]
