Are we surprised?

You can call me a paranoid crank. But seriously, should we be surprised by these brown shirt attacks on Christians when clowns like Governor Cuomo makes a public statement that anti abortion foes are not welcome in their state? When the IRS attacks conservative groups? When prosecutors in Wisconsin storm trooper their way into people's homes and confiscate computers? This is the side benefit of our elected official's actions...... link here A long time ago I heard Dennis Prager state that the world is in a three way struggle for power. One of those factions is Islamic, fascist, dictatorships. Another faction are Humanist, Euro socialist, democracies and the last are Judeo-Christian, free market, republics. People in the Judeo Christian faiths have been passive about pushing their beliefs on others. We we all better wake up because these others are working hard to extinguish us off the face of the earth. It's not like Andrew Cuomo kept the secret.

Where was she?

Most of us already know this

But how about the White House press pool exposing it.............

He has no famous chums in Congress. He has few relationships of any sort with lawmakers. Really what he wants to do is make his decisions in the Oval Office, have a few meetings, give some speeches on college campuses and at high schools, and play golf. And then send Jay Carney out to talk about how Republicans are intransigent, politically motivated hacks who don’t even wear deodorant.

Well, yes, the Congress was in fact designed to include people committed to principles and also worried about getting reelected. The trick is to use various carrots and sticks to get them to do you bidding.

The grunt work of legislating is not for him. That’s why he passed through the Illinois legislature and the United States Senate leaving not a trace of evidence he was ever there.

As I’ve mentioned before, I covered both the Clinton and Bush White Houses. Routinely, with each of them, there was line of cars on the West Wing driveway belonging to members of some committee or faction of Congress that had dropped by to meet the president. If they wanted the gathering to remain below the radar, they “snuck in” the side door, and then the camera guys who were always in a position where they could see the entrance there told us about it.

With Obama, almost never. Nothing. No meetings. If you ask around on Capitol Hill, no phone calls either. Obama, expostulating about the uncooperativeness of Republicans, does nothing to get them to cooperate. It’s not in his character. And then he attacks them for his own paucity of results. He’s like a high school football player who never comes to practice and then whines that he’s warming the bench.

What would you expect from a guy who never had a real job?


President Billary

One of the things that blows me away is our media's incredible loss of short term memory. Even on the stories they cover...........

Time magazine’s cover this week asks, “Can Anyone Stop Hillary?” The answer to that question is yes, but you’d never know it judging by the overwhelming belief among Democratic insiders that the party’s 2016 presidential nomination is simply Hillary Clinton’s for the asking.

Let's flashback to this same election cycle point in 2006. Who exactly was the can't lose candidate back then?

If you can remember that oh so long ago, it was the Billary. In fact, no one had even heard of this empty suit we currently have in the White House.

The only pol that was within a can of hair spray from her was John Edwards.

So what if Cory Booker runs this next cycle. How inevitable will the Billary be?


The JV president

Kind of funny that a guy who couldn't play varsity basketball for a Hawaii school would make this JV comment.

In his New Yorker interview published over the weekend, President Obama stated that current Al Qaeda was “jayvee” – and said that his analogy was often used around the White House. “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama said. He then added, “I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.”

Trust me. We know this metaphor all to well. You can place an idiot in the Whitehouse but that doesn't make him a president.


The education president

If I were to ask the question "which party will do more to make education more affordable for working people?"

What would your answer be?

Check that against Mr. Education himself, Barack Obama...............

As a candidate and for the duration of his administration, President Barack Obama has persistently insisted that affordable higher education is among his top priorities.
Even today at his “grassroots” website, Organizing for Action (, Obama lists affordable education as the second of six principles for “securing the American dream and strengthening the middle class.” Specifically, the president seeks to provide “a quality education that doesn’t break the bank” and to “rein in the cost of college for families by rewarding quality schools that make higher education affordable.”
So how is it going?

It’s a disastrous failure.
According to the College Board, the average cost for tuition, room and board at four-year colleges and universities has increased 28 percent during Obama’s presidency.
The average cost of tuition, room and board at private four-year colleges and universities has increased 27.89 percent — from $31,993 during the 2008-2009 academic year to $40,917 this year.
