If you’ve check the right side bar on AOR lately, you may have noticed that one of the books I am currently reading is Marcus Luttrell’s Lone Survivor:  An Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10.  I just finished it the other day and loved it!  It was a [...]

CNN: Benghazi Bombshell?

August 1, 2013

In a spontaneous act of actual journalism, CNN’s Drew Griffin is reporting that the events of September 11, 2012, at the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, may not be so “phony” after all. The highlights of the report include: A number of CIA agents had been in Benghazi that night, adding the CIA to the [...]

Rush Limbaugh’s Great Interview on Greta

July 31, 2013

Rush Limbaugh generally doesn’t like TV interviews, but seems to always make an exception for Fox’s Greta Van Susteren once in a while.  Yesterday, Rush sat down for over an hour for an interview, which essentially summarized what he’s been saying on the radio since February.  Here’s most of the interview on video. For those [...]

Obama: Fueling the Racial Flames

July 21, 2013

Friday, while few were paying attention, President Obama made these remarks regarding the George Zimmerman verdict.  Here’s a short clip: Any observer of this administration can see, clearly by now, that the Justice Department and now Obama himself, are involved in a major media head fake, stoking the flames of discontent regarding this duly adjudicated [...]

George Zimmerman Acquitted

July 14, 2013

Last evening the six-member jury deliberating the guilt of George Zimmerman found him not guilty, acquitting him for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.  The Blaze has great coverage of the last 24 hours, as this story keeps developing. Having been on a million juries (that’s what I get for voting in every election!), [...]

The New Fox on Fox

July 11, 2013

Elisabeth Hasselbeck made it official on The View yesterday that she’ll be moving to the curvy couch at Fox & Friends starting this September, where she’ll be replacing co-host Gretchen Carlson.  I think it’s a great career move, being that it keeps her in the media in a more intellectual environment.  Pretty soon she may [...]

Steven Crowder, the Zimmerman Trial, and Facebook

July 2, 2013

Last week Rachel Jeantel testified as a witness for the prosecution against George Zimmerman in the trial over the death of Trayvon Martin. Her testimony was just plain awful, generated uncomfortable laughs, as well as plenty of racial controversy (what doesn’t these days!). So here comes Steven Crowder, who loves to draw attention to the [...]

NObamacare for the NFL

June 29, 2013

Obamacare has a problem: if 2.7 million 18-35 year old males don’t sign up for those state exchanges, the whole thing is going to implode pretty quickly.  In their wisdom, our central planners figure that healthy young people’s high rates can pay for sickly old people.  If there’s not enough young people paying into the [...]

DOMA Goes Down

June 26, 2013

A key provision which denied certain federal benefits to gay couples in the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act was struck down in a 5-4 vote by the Supreme Court today.  The libs and conservatives voted predictably with Anthony O’Connor Kennedy being the swing vote. Writing for the majority, Justice Kennedy expressed that DOMA: “…imposes a disability [...]

NSA Surveillance Programs Wreak Havoc on Liberty

June 7, 2013

The National Security Agency (NSA) has been collecting data from (at the every least) Verizon to data-mine billions of phone calls in order to prevent future terror attacks — and they’ve been doing it for seven years (BTW if that’s the case, then they really dropped the ball in Boston, didn’t they)! It’s not just [...]

The Susan Rice Appointment: Two Views

June 5, 2013

In the Obama Nation, being a national embarrassment can get you a promotion!  In this case, former UN Ambassador and complete embarrassment Susan Rice was just appointed National Security Adviser by President Obama today.  But why? After listening to the pundits and scouring the Internets, I noticed two schools of thought — the obvious school [...]

Attorney General Eric Holder testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee on May 15 that he didn’t know about the Justice Department’s investigation of Fox News’ James Rosen.  When pushed by a Democrat to relate the DOJ’s behavior to the 1917 Espionage Act, Holder said: “In regard to potential prosecution of the press for [...]

May 17, 2013

In the face of a growing IRS scandal related to the political targeting of conservative groups in the run-up to the 2012 Election, Sarah Hall Ingram, the woman who oversaw all that malfeasance as it was happening, is getting a new job — running the IRS wing of Obamacare. Ingram should be dragged in front [...]

Second-Term Blues For Obama

May 14, 2013

Every President who has been reelected has had a hard time in their second terms.  Some had major scandals, others passed away, others suffered from the public’s fatigue and lame duck status in a way which harmed their legacies.*  No one was immune. Neither is Obama, apparently. Right now Obama’s second-term agenda is slowly disappearing [...]

Benghazi: Not Going Away

May 8, 2013

No one should be surprised that the Benghazi scandal dominates the headlines once again, this time with whistle-blowers.  The Obama Administration has stone-walled, subverted, intimidated, and just plain lied about that they knew and when they knew it. The outrage isn’t new and isn’t going away.  This isn’t Watergate or Iran-Contra or Zippergate.  Four people [...]

Drawing Attention to the Gosnell Trial Might Expose Extensive Abuse

April 29, 2013

The jury in abortionist baby-killer Kermit Gosnell’s murder trial heard closing arguments today.  Based on ridiculously scant media coverage of this trial, most wouldn’t have noticed it.  Demonstrating the depth of the MSM blackout, NewsBusters revealed that in the last 42 days Good Morning America spent 109 minutes on other sensational trials, while spending NO [...]

Steyn: Collapsing the American Skull

April 28, 2013

Mark Steyn’s NRO article this week is classic, cutting Steyn.  In it he takes on our lack of immigrant assimilation while tying in Dr. “Baby-Killer” Kermit Gosnell’s abortion crimes.  Here are two excerpts: Until the 1960s, it was assumed by all sovereign states that they had the right to choose which non-nationals were admitted within [...]

Kentucky’s Own “Plumbers”

April 9, 2013

Earlier today the liberal news dump Mother Jones published a story airing secret taped conversations made during Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell’s strategy sessions regarding his potential Senate race against Ashley Judd.  The excerpts deal with opposition research and campaign strategy.  Judd is no longer running for Senate as that trial balloon has deflated, but that [...]

Happy Easter!

March 31, 2013

If it’s the first Sunday after the first full moon after the beginning of Spring, it must be Easter! Hope you and your family have a great one! Unfortunately for Christians nowadays, we live in perilous times.  Not only is the Obamacare contraception mandate a brazen attack on religious liberty, the language all over social [...]

Obama Sets Up More Gun Control Props

March 28, 2013

President Obama, deeply committed to dealing with Mideast peace Sequester cuts gay marriage immigration reform gun control, tried to “shame” Congress into action by using mothers of slain children in the Sandy Hook Massacre as props to promote his political agenda.  Hot Air deals quite well with the brazen and cynical sideshow the President put [...]

A Narrower “View” sans Hasselbeck

March 9, 2013

ABC’s “The View” is firing Elisabeth Hasselbeck after nine years allegedly because market research indicates that she is too conservative for the show’s audience.  As it turns out, Joy Behar just quit the show recently, shaking things up pretty significantly.  I don’t necessarily doubt the bottom-line market research, but since Hasselbeck and I are both [...]

Woodward in the Crosshairs

February 28, 2013

Mainstream Media icon Bob Woodward has officially fallen from grace mainly because of this exchange earlier this week: How dare he criticize Dear Leader’s “certain kind of madness!”  What’s worse, Woodward had the audacity to publicly admit that he felt threatened by the Administration’s response to that exchange. Sadly, the Obama Nation must now destroy [...]

A Thirst for More Rubio

February 13, 2013

I made it through literally four minutes of President Obama’s State of the Union speech last night before my gag reflex kicked-in, prompting me to watch something else.  I did catch the news round-up of its contents this morning — more progressive liberal bull crap.  However, I was interested in seeing Marco Rubio give the [...]

Send in the Drones

February 5, 2013

The Obama Administration today is defending their policy of using overseas drone strikes not just on foreign terrorists, but also overseas Americans who help them out.  While the memos revealed flimsy standards governing the President’s discretion on using the drones, they defend the policy as “legal,” “ethical,” and “wise.”  I’m pretty sure this guy shares the [...]

Obama Targets Football

January 28, 2013

The week before the Super Bowl, our President decided to give an interview with the New Republic in which he took aim at player safety in football: I’m a big football fan, but I have to tell you if I had a son, I’d have to think long and hard before I let him play [...]

Feinstein’s War on Guns Continues

January 24, 2013

Today, California Senator Diane Feinstein re-introduced a plan to expand the current list of banned guns in the US, opening the Democrat’s latest salvo in their War on Guns.  If this bill would put in place a policy that could have prevented Newtown short of a complete ban or confiscation of all guns, then I’d [...]

Obama’s Second Inaugural Address

January 21, 2013

President Obama gave his second inaugural address today — I only saw the last ten minutes of it.  Due to all the missed school days from Superstorm Sandy, I had work today. Ten minutes was enough.  Soaring, airy rhetoric, to be sure.  Delivered well, but the same ol’ horse manure.  In the mere ten minutes [...]

The highly anticipated film about the search and eventual killing of Osama Bin Laden, Zero Dark Thirty, opened on screens across the country yesterday.  Here’s the trailer: As you may know, this movie is controversial for some on both sides of the aisle.  Some Democrats (and John McCain, of course) don’t like the “torture” scenes [...]

Just Cocky College Kids or “Deluded Narcissists”

January 10, 2013

An exhaustive study indicates that Millennials, those who were born from c. 1982-1999, have a wildly inflated sense of self-infatuation and a notable overconfidence.  When asked about their abilities, their “above average” attitude didn’t match their level of achievement. But is this study just a reflection of college students being college students or is there [...]
