Podcast – The Kickoff of the Jihad Olympics – Is Obama House Hunting in DC

In this episode, I discuss the two recent terror attacks by ISIS and al-Qaeda in Paris and Mali respectively. Yes, it’s the Jihad Olympics and the two major competitors are the aforementioned ISIS and a resurging al-Qaeda, both vying for the Gold Medal. A Gold Medal performance will be determined by the severity of attacks on the United States – Silver for Europe and other Western nations and Bronze for less significant targets. This competition between the two terror groups may get ugly and that’s bad news for the rest of us.

And, are the Obamas house hunting in Washington D.C. yet? While most presidents happily sail off into the sunset to lead lives of relative anonymity, this president will remain in D.C. to agitate against the next Executive. It’s what he was trained to do and neither he, nor the media will sit by quietly and let his successor undo any of his disastrous policies or Executive Orders. read more

No Negotiation on Amnesty

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday, Fox news reported that “The Republican-led House voted Wednesday to overturn president Obama’s immigration actions from last November – and to unravel a directive from 2012 protecting immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children – sending the bill to the Senate where it faces an uncertain fate. The House voted 236-191 to approve the legislation, which funds the Homeland Security Department through the rest of the budget year to the tune of $40 billion. But as part of that bill, Republicans added provisions to gut the president’s immigration directives.”

“We do not take this action lightly, but simply there is no alternative,” House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday. “It’s not a dispute between the parties or even between the branches of our government. This executive overreach is an affront to the rule of law and to the Constitution itself.”

Okay – got all that? So our Republican House voted overwhelmingly to fund the precious Department of Homeland Security. Naturally, we can’t muck about with our security. Not with all the threats of terrorism. And we all know Republicans always fully fund the military and Homeland, because we’re all hawks, we revere the military and want to keep the country safe.

But just because the name has “security” in it, doesn’t mean it must be blindly funded. I bet Homeland could get by just fine on half that, but anyone who dares suggest such a notion would be accused of subverting our security. But I digress. read more
