“Sorry, Barack: I Can’t Give The Israeli People ‘The Stevens’,” Said Bibi

by Smitty You can almost forgive #OccupyResoluteDesk for wanting the Israelis to pull their punches, given Obama’s oblivious non-command of leadership: President Barack Obama phoned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu late Sunday, demanding that he agree to an immediate ceasefire “that ends hostilities now and leads to a permanent cessation of hostilities, based on the […]

Just Relax In Your ‘Fundamentally Transformed’ Country, Americans

by Smitty Pres’ent Obama has simply carried through: In the pre-transformed America, it was understood that the Commies had infiltrated Hollywood and academia. No one really expected subversion of the IRS: To summarize: The IRS (famed for nitpicking and prosecuting the tax law), chose to authorize hundreds of billions of illegal subsidies without having performed […]

Did ObamaCare Just Die?

Circuit Court of Appeals decision this morning: Court Rules That Subsidies in Obamacare’s Federal Exchange are Illegal, Dealing Huge Legal Blow to Health Law – Reason In Blow to Health Law, Appeals Court Limits Subsidies – New York Times BREAKING: Two Republican Judges Order Obamacare […]

Democrats are voicing their displeasure with his policies and campaign advisers are telling candidates […]

Nor is congressional refusal to […]

Add @MohamedElibiary to the list of Obama administration scandals that the Democrat-Media Complex expect us to ignore. Ace of Spades was all over this story last night: “By the way, this ‘senior fellow’ at DHS is a Muslim Brotherhood booster. He called Mohammad Morsi, the now-deposed Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt, Egypt’s Nelson Mandela.” But […]

The Media’s President

“Obama: Anatomy of a World Leader,” by Alex Gray (detail) Da Tech Guy makes the obvious point: The reason the media aren’t going after the IRS scandal is because Barack Obama is their president. Not since JFK’s fictitious “Camelot” have the media invested so heavily in maintaining the image of a president, an image of competence […]
