New Benghazi Emails Emerge

May 1, 2014

And they aren’t too pretty.  Even as officers on the ground and at headquarters knew that the September 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks were perpetrated by a coordinated terrorist effort, the Obama Administration was making up and sticking to the ridiculous story that a video made the attackers do it. Hours after the attack the spin [...]

RI Speaker Resigns Amid Murky Investigation

March 23, 2014

Rhode Island’s House Speaker, Gordon Fox (D), resigned yesterday amid an investigation by the US attorney’s office, the FBI, the IRS, and the state police.  The story itself is interesting for two reasons: first, that no one yet knows what the investigation is all about, and secondly, that Fox is biracial and gay. In this [...]

Tea Party Turns Five

February 27, 2014

From September 2008 to February 2009 nearly $1.6 trillion America didn’t have had been spent by our government: TARP to bailout Wall Street ($700 billion), plus the auto bailouts ($80 billion), plus the Stimulus to bailout Democrat constituencies ($787 billion).  When would it stop?  Who would end up paying for it?  Anyone paying attention was [...]

Movie Review — Lone Survivor

January 25, 2014

I vaguely remember a story back in 2005 about this Navy SEAL in Afghanistan who was the only one who survived an attack by dozens of Taliban, who managing to crawl to an Afghan village, and somehow got rescued.  This Iraq War vet (OIF 1), after recovering from his wounds volunteered to go back to [...]

Chris Christie Deals with a “Roadblock”

January 8, 2014

It is clear that after his recent reelection, Establishment New Jersey Governor Chris Christie wants to be President.  He won’t win, but the GOP seems on their way to nominate him, especially since his recent pandering to illegals.  But there may be a roadblock to an easy GOP nomination — a literal roadblock. Here is [...]

NYT Provides Cover for Hillary in Benghazi Story

December 30, 2013

If there was a story that the MSM would want out of the headlines, it’s Benghazi:  the murder of a US ambassador by an al Qaeda-linked militia; the repeated lies about the video by administration officials in the weeks following the attack; the way it makes the President look aloof, Hillary look cold, and the [...]

CBS’s Random Act of Journalism on Benghazi

October 28, 2013

Benghazi?  Wasn’t that, like, some “phony scandal” from a hundred years ago? Alas, no. The first murder of a US ambassador since 1979 doesn’t just go away, despite the MSM’s attempts to have us look the other way.  Yet, first CNN and now CBS have decided to dig a little deeper into what happened that [...]

The Government Shuts Down

October 1, 2013

I looked up — the sky was still there.  I looked down — a giant hole did not swallow me up.  Life is good. Last night the federal government shutdown — let the political circus begin!  Since the MSM is primarily DC/government centric, they are in a predictable frenzy.  However, if your job is a [...]

House GOP to Push Obamacare Defund Vote

September 18, 2013

House Speaker John Boehner finally bent to the pressure within his caucus to push for a vote to defund Obamacare, threatening a showdown with Senate Democrats and the President which could result in a government shutdown October 1.  While I’d love a full repeal, I’ll take the GOP short-term proposal which doesn’t repeal Obamacare (yet), [...]

Obama: Red Line? Not My Red Line!

September 4, 2013

On August 20, 2012, President Obama first uttered his now infamous “red line” comment regarding use of chemical weapons in the Syrian Civil War: We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of [...]

A “Lone Survivor” Movie

August 2, 2013

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 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 [...]

Media Snubs Holder

May 30, 2013

The embattled Attorney General of the self-proclaimed most transparent administration in America history, Eric Holder, has decided to finally chat with members of the press.  Of course, these conversations will be off the record! Apparently, Holder didn’t get the memo — when stuck in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging. The [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Ryan’s 2012 Election Prediction

November 5, 2012

It’s almost go-time America!  Tomorrow, there’s a major fork in the road staring at us all.  Neither direction fully solves our problems, but one leads us to the abyss a lot faster.  A President Romney will try to take on the big issues and maybe get us pushed in the right direction.  A re-elected President [...]

Second Presidential Debate Preview

October 15, 2012

Regarding tomorrow night’s second Presidential debate, the headlines in the MSM are likely already written : “Obama’s Big Comeback!” or something like that.  Obama’s first debate performance was so awful based on expectations that anything is apt to be an improvement.  They’ll talk about how Obama connected with the people much better than Romney in [...]

Romney on Foreign Policy

October 8, 2012

Giving a major foreign policy speech at the Virginia Military Institute today, Mitt Romney took it to President Obama, saying amongst other things that “Hope is not a strategy” while calling Obama out on the 9/11 Libya attack and Obama’s foreign policy drift. Predictably, the Obamabots in the MSM immediately panned it, calling it vague.  [...]

CBS Edits Interview in Obama’s Favor

September 24, 2012

There will never be a newsflash that the press has treated Obama with kid gloves, but sometimes I get perplexed.  It’s one thing to cover for the guy now and then;  it’s another to let that get in the way of one’s integrity and business sense. Here’s what I mean:  CBS edited out a portion [...]

Beck’s Take on the Benghazi Attack

September 22, 2012

It’s been fascinating to watch the Obama Administration hang itself on all the inconsistencies relating to the 9/11 terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi.  Some believe that all the confusion paints a picture of an administration in disarray, which may give some indeterminate political advantage to Romney in this election game of inches. Yet, [...]

Romney vs. Obama on 9/11 Embassy Attacks

September 12, 2012

Yesterday, the US embassy in Egypt and the US consulate in Libya were attacked, leaving four dead including our ambassador, and tarnishing American prestige even more in the region. These events are still in flux as more information seems to be coming out by the hour.  The catalyst for the violence is a 14-minute film [...]

September 3, 2012

Here’s your Labor Day palate cleanser!  I love when Newt looks the MSM in the eye and takes it to them. This time Newt lectures them regarding media bias on Akin and the abortion issue.  Enjoy the subtle discomfort of the libs on the panel (go to about 4:48):

Obama — Apparently Not His Brother’s Keeper

August 22, 2012

Last week, Dinesh D’Souza, author of the new book Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream and driving force behind the film currently in theaters 2016: Obama’s America, wrote a piece for Fox that was shocking — amazingly so because it was so far under the radar that I didn’t even know it existed until Rush [...]

A Lucid Moment at Newsweek

August 21, 2012

By now, you may have heard about Newsweek‘s latest cover article by Niall Ferguson which makes a strong case for replacing Obama.  In short, Ferguson believes that Obama has not kept his promises, has not demonstrated the ability to lead us through these tough times, and really doesn’t have a clue regarding foreign policy.  Thus, [...]

Midnight Movie Massacre in Colorado

July 20, 2012

While the details are still being revealed as I write, what we do know is that a 24-year old gunman named James Holmes went into a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado.  Using noxious gas canisters and 2-3 guns, Holmes killed at least 12 people, wounding 58.  Those numbers are likely [...]
