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...]

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...]

The Message We Should Send: Embalm Osama with Pig’s Blood

Osama bin Laden is dead, and as with the death of Iraqi al-Qaeda terror Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, some liberals warn that winning is losing, self-defense is self-defeating, and killing our enemies is minting new “martyrs.” Because of this, we should not have killed Osama, at least not immediately. Since we did, it was our supremest wisdom that we agreed to bury him in accordance with Islamic Shari’a … [Read more...]

The Media Hype: Osama’s Death Means Obama’s Re-Election

After the long-awaited death of Osama bin Laden, the media are finally jubilant – that Barack Obama may get a second term after all. Reuters led the way within hours of the announcement of the terror mastermind’s death with a piece entitled, “Snap Analysis: Bin Laden Death a Political Victory for Obama.” (You must realize, to the mainstream media, everything is a political victory for Obama.) … [Read more...]

Will Obama Betray Armenian Christians on Easter Sunday?

by Ben Johnson I never thought I would write these words but -- God bless Kim Kardashian. On her website, nestled beneath announcements of Belle Noel's spring collection and "Jenny McCarthy's fearless ShoeDazzle Shoe!" is a blog entry entitled, "Time to Recognize the Armenian Genocide." In it, the reality show star reminds the world of one of the twentieth century's earliest, and most … [Read more...]

Why Obama Really Started the Libyan War

Anyone seeking to know why Barack Obama really committed U.S. troops to Libya’s civil war can begin by dismissing virtually everything he said in his speech Monday night out of hand. For instance, Obama claimed he initiated this military action for humanitarian reasons. Failing “our responsibilities to our fellow human beings...would have been a betrayal of who we are,” he said. “Some nations may … [Read more...]

Skin Cancer, Courtesy of the TSA

The dangers of the new airport scanners installed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) go beyond the awkward, self-conscious feeling of having a stranger take an X-ray of your nude body. According to a growing number of scientists, the radiation these scanners emit will infect a number of people each year with skin cancer. The TSA has downplayed all such concerns, insisting … [Read more...]

Obama’s Defense Plan: “We Can Absorb a Terrorist Attack”

“September the 11th for them was a bad day; for us it was a change of attitude” — President George W. Bush, 2006. Barack Obama has a unique response to terrorist attacks: America can “absorb” them. A new book shows the president exhibits blasé indifference to the prospect of American citizens suffering another 9/11 attack from Islamic terrorists but is highly concerned that he not accept the … [Read more...]

Mr. President, If You Support the Troops, Help Them Vote

One of the president's aims in his address last night was to clean up his image as the community-organizer-in-chief, the president who refuses to wear a flag pin on his lapel or put his hand over his heart for the national anthem. He attempted to boost his patriotism by rhetorically hitching himself to George W. Bush. In his address last night, Barack Obama said: This afternoon, I spoke to former … [Read more...]

Obama’s Latest Stealth Amnesty

Although a large majority of Americans support enforcing immigration law, the Obama administration has undertaken a series of steps to impose amnesty upon the country by fiat. Administration officials are largely ignoring the law, forbidding local officers from keeping their communities safe, and preparing a federally imposed plan of amnesty without a single representative voting on it – all … [Read more...]
