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...]

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 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...]

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...]

DoJ: Obama Can Send U.S. Troops to Do the UN’s Bidding by Decree

The Justice Department has decided it is perfectly acceptable for the president to send American troops into foreign military adventures without so much as consulting Congress, as long as he is carrying out the will of the United Nations. Just before Barack Obama's speech on the budget on Wednesday, the White House revealed that American jets have continued to bomb Libya, after giving the … [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...]

Dancing with the Devil

IF NOTHING ELSE CAME OUT OF YESTERDAY’S SPEECH AT THE UN, we now know what is on Venezuelan proto-fascist Hugo Chavez’s reading table. “Noam Chomsky, and this is one of his most recent books, Hegemony or Survival: The Imperialist Strategy of the United States,” he said, hoisting the tome aloft at the podium. “I will just leave it as a recommendation.” His Chomsky citation merely proves what … [Read more...]

Cheapening Coretta Scott King’s Legacy

IF LAURA INGRAHAM WRITES A FOLLOW-UP BOOK, IT SHOULD BE TITLED, SHUT UP AND MOURN! Yesterday, the Left again chose division over reconciliation, bitterness over harmony, and the transient over the transcendent at the funeral of Coretta Scott King. For the third time in as many years, leftists politicized a funeral service. And the most outspoken partisans present were a failed former president and … [Read more...]

A Failed Former President

The only thing more painful than listening to Jimmy Carter lecture President Bush on how to conduct a successful presidency was living through his disastrous attempt to turn his advice into reality. As I noted earlier this week, Carter has channeled his hatred of non-leftists, secular and religious, into a glut of slanders in his new bestseller, Our Endangered Values. He charges his … [Read more...]
