Practical Thoughts on Immigration

The following is adapted from a speech delivered on February 18, 2015, at a Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar in Naples, Florida. The lesson from the last 20 years of immigration policy is that lawlessness breeds more lawlessness.

Barack Obama’s hatred of America and a free society

–  By Jim Mullen – Our Republic has suffered from nearly every form of scallywag, thief, liar, and wannabe dictator serving or disserving in the Oval Office. On the other hand, we’ve had honest, dedicated, and patriotic men rise decidedly above what mortal men could reasonably be expected to achieve, who saved, protected, and healed…… Continue reading Barack Obama’s hatred of America and a free society

Pew Poll: ‘Incompetent’ And ‘Liar’ Among Words Most Used To Describe Obama

Well now. The self-proclaimed “fourth best president in history” has come to this, has he? A survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that terms like “incompetent” and “liar” are now among the most frequently used to describe Barack Hussein Obama.

Midterm Tsunami; Perhaps Just Another House Of Cards Built With A New Deck

by Jon Mathews, The Conservative Syndicate “So, establishment types, remember that you didn’t build this!

They deserve the best for America.” (Sarah Palin, Election Night, November 4, 2014) Watching…… Continue reading Midterm Tsunami; Perhaps Just Another House Of Cards Built With A New Deck

From Déjà Vu To Vuja De; Another Experiment In Socialism Comes Full Circle

By Jon Matthews, The Conservative Syndicate     “This isn’t about my feelings being hurt.

Voter Fraud; Non-Issue Or The Main Issue

By Jon Matthews, The Conservative Syndicate     “Keep in mind that most of these laws are not preventing the overwhelming majority of folks who don’t vote from voting. Most people do have an ID.

VIDEO – Obama: False Hope, False Messiah

The liberal mind is obsessed with “saving us from ourselves” and erecting an all knowing, all powerful nanny state to usher in the new utopia.

Substituting The Sideshow For The Main Event …

– by Jack Curtis –  Putin has threatened to resort to nuclear war if anyone interferes with his invasion and annexation of eastern Ukraine. Yawn … It seems amazing that a blatant reversal of decades of nuclear policy has attracted so little attention. Putin’s Russia has switched from nuclear caution embraced by the Soviets, to nuclear…… Continue reading Substituting The Sideshow For The Main Event …

Close the Gates!

What do you do when your intended victims catch on to your abusive behavior and attempt to flee? You close the gates, of course. Blame them for their own problems and then prevent their escape.

Obama’s Naive Belief in Predetermined History

– By Victor Davis Hanson – In his therapeutic 2009 Cairo speech, Obama outlined all sorts of Islamic intellectual and technological pedigrees, several of which were undeserved.

He also believes history follows…… Continue reading Obama’s Naive Belief in Predetermined History

The West Lacks One Essential Tool to Defeat ISIS

As I read about IS (whom we all pray will soon be WASWAS) I often think something is missing, especially from our governments.

August In Mid-America…Psst, Obama, Come On Out And Bring Pelosi, Schumer And Reid With You

 The Secret Service would probably ruin a good time One afternoon last week, another member of the Limits household and I played hooky and floated a pretty flat five-mile stretch of a river no one outside of Missouri has ever heard of.  At one point, as we passed a fairly organized campground, the smell of…… Continue reading August In Mid-America…Psst, Obama, Come On Out And Bring Pelosi, Schumer And Reid With You

Suffer The Children As Adults Use Them To Play Geo-Political Games

To quote Daffy Duck, You’re Despicable There is a saying in the world of advertising acting: Never be in a commercial with kids or dogs.  You’ll disappear. For people who love kids and dogs, that sounds rather cynical, but it’s pretty true.  What is cute and appealing sells.  And what is cuter and more appealing…… Continue reading Suffer The Children As Adults Use Them To Play Geo-Political Games

The Hypocrisy of “Economic Patriotism”

President Obama dropped to a new level of hypocrisy* with his anti-capitalist rhetoric yesterday, calling for U.S.-based firms to entertain the notion of “economic patriotism”, which is liberal code for “shut up and bend over”. Let’s take a look at his words — and his staggering new level of hypocrisy — point by point. “I don’t…… Continue reading The Hypocrisy of “Economic Patriotism”
