Know Thine Enemy!

Paraphrasing the ancient Chinese warrior Sun Tzu:                        To defeat your opponent you must know your opponent. In the generations since our founding, Liberty has suffered excessive insult by the rise of men who,under the banner of "public service," are motivated principally by self service -- and the greater the drive toward self service, the greater the threat to Liberty. Recent history records the ascension of politicians who were incontrovertibly motivated by self service masquerading as public service -- Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Albert Gore, John Kerry and John Edwards, to name a few. All of these men share tragic family histories, which indelibly imprinted them from birth. Each also has a common diagnosis for his behavior: Narcissistic Pathology Disorder (NPD).  By definition, narcissists are deeply insecure and, consequently, have an unrelenting need to be admired by others. Their low self-esteem is often imprinted from early childhood, and for many it is …

An Attack On Our "Due Process"

"Before the dust began to settle around New York City’s twin towers,Washington’s political elites were contemplating the benefits in sheer legislative power a terror attack of such magnitude could bestow upon the benevolent despots of Capitol Hill.


In a secretly recorded 1992 address to the Bilderberg Organization, Henry Kissinger made this statement:“Today’s Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order;tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond,whether real or promulgated,that threatened [their] very existence.” Though Kissinger was speaking to potential domination by a world ruling order,his message can be readily applied to the United States alone where“individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of [the people’s] well-being,granted to them by their…government.”

Since 9/11,the American people have faced the prospect of another attack,one potentially fa…

Present Welfare Spending 200% Higher Than "Poor Level!"

My name is Robert Rector. I am a Senior Research Fellow at The Heritage Foundation. The views I express in this testimony are my own, and should not be construed as representing any official position of The Heritage Foundation.
The governmental safety net has three basic components: 1) Social Security and Medicare for the elderly; 2) unemployment insurance and worker’s compensation; and 3) anti-poverty or means-tested welfare programs. 
My testimony will deal with the means- tested welfare system which could also be called comprehensive assistance to the poor.
The means-tested welfare system consists of 79 federal programs providing cash, food, housing, medical care, social services, training, and targeted education aid to poor and low income Americans. Means-tested welfare programs differ from general government programs in two ways. First, they provide aid exclusively to persons (or communities) with low incomes; second, individuals do not need to earn eligibility for benefits through …

Proof He Doesn't Mean What He Says

And in the last two days, in two separate speeches, Obama has mistakenly talked about “my sons” in defending his mandate to force Catholics and Catholic institutions to act against the teachings of their faith in buying and providing health plans that pay for sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortifacients.


At the Iowa State Fair Grounds on Thursday, Obama said: “We don’t need another political fight about ending a woman’s right to choose, or getting rid of Planned Parenthood or taking away affordable birth control. We don’t need that. I want women to control their own health choices, just like I want my daughters to have the same economic opportunities as my sons. We’re not turning back the clock. We’re not going back there.” Sons? What sons? How many? Where? Names? Do the girls know? (More importantly, does Michelle?) Will the boys be joining him on the campaign trail?”


It is a fact, as the White House itself reported in its transcripts of his speeches, that on four occasions this …

Obama Threatens the Supreme Court, Again

"President Barack Obama has again threatened the Supreme Court over ObamaCare - this time indicating that if the Court does not rule his way, he will take his revenge on senior citizens by destroying Medicare.

Martha McCallum of Fox News reports that the "Administration has been sending 'missives' to the Supreme Court threatening that if it doesn't rule in Obama's favor on the healthcare law; Medicare will face disruption and 'Chaos.' Apparently, should the Supreme Court fail to submit to Obama's demands, and rather chooses to rule in favor of the Constitution,Obama & Co will begin a campaign to destroy Medicare Payments to doctors and hospitals.

This isn't the first time Barack has threatened the court over ObamaCare. In Obama's first threat to the Supremes, he condemned the Justices by stating that it was "Unprecedented" for an "Unelected group of people" to overturn a law that was passed by a "Strong majorit…

Obama Has Shown Weakness Throughout His Term

When President George Bush was president, he took a strong stand with Iran and their nuclear program.  He led the efforts to place a number of strict UN sanctions against Iran pending the suspension of their uranium enrichment program.
Shortly after taking office in 2009, Barack Obama decided to take a different approach with Iran.  Instead of the strong stance of the Bush administration, Obama chose to try peaceful negotiations.  At the time it was believed that Iran was in possession of 1.3 tons of low-enriched uranium considered to be only about 3.5% enriched.
According to the report of an ex-CIA spy that had infiltrated Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, the Islamic government saw Obama’s gesture of peace and negotiations as a sign of weakness.  They also saw the US’s weakness as a chance to stall any serious consequences for their nuclear program and give them time to further enrich their uranium to help bring it up to weapons grade.
Most reports currently place Iran’s uranium to be at the…

Unions Lie and It's Legal!

Unions LIE.



"Recently, a federal court smacked down Barack Obama’s union appointees at the National Labor Relations Board for the manner in which they imposed their ambush election scheme. The scheme is, however, far from dead as the union-controlled labor board is “determined to move forward” with the needless rules. While there is much opposition to the NLRB’s ambush election rules, few have yet to address the underlying issue that makes the scheme unfair to workers and a disaster for America’s union-free workplace and that is: 
Unions and their organizers LIE to and deceive workers…ALL THE TIME! What’s worse is that, not only do unions lie to, trick and deceive workers into unionizing, it’s perfectly legal to do so. With a median time from petition-filing to election, unions have been winning around 60% or more of the elections conducted by the NLRB for about a decade (unions won 71% in 2011). However, with ambush elections, the union win rate is expected to increase to around 90%…

Who Really Was Going To Raise Student Loan Rates?

Eager to energize young voters, President Barack Obama is depicting Republicans as obstacles to an affordable college education as he previews an argument he will make on university campuses next week in states crucial to his re-election.
"This is a question of values," Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday. "We cannot let America become a country where a shrinking number of people do really well while a growing number of people struggle to get by."
Obama wants Congress to extend a law that cut interest rates on a popular federal loan program for low- and middle-income undergraduates. If the law expires, the rates will double on July 1, from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent.
Obama blames Republicans for voting against new ways to make college more affordable for middle-class families. But it was House Democrats who cut interest rates on the school loans in 2007 and included an expiration provision that placed the looming increase in the middle of an e…

Finally, A Photo of the Team That Killed OBL

The White House has finally ended the suspense and published  the photo of the only people responsible for killing Osama Bin Laden
