Trouble at the Border

June 10, 2014

How in the hell do tens of thousands of unaccompanied children end up swamping the Mexican border, creating an impending humanitarian crisis? As far as I can tell, there are two reasons:  1) negligent border security efforts and 2) the impression in many Central American countries that an amnesty is coming. So, the Obama Nation [...]

Bergdahl Prisoner Exchange Debacle

June 4, 2014

Just in time to take the V.A. scandal out of the headlines while head-faking the nation so a deal can be reached with the Hamas-led terrorist Palestinian government, President Obama neatly handed over five Taliban members who were resting comfortably at Gitmo for one American POW… without notifying Congress, which is illegal since these guys [...]

Rand Paul Wins CPAC Straw Poll

March 9, 2014

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul won the CPAC straw poll yesterday with 31% of the total vote, getting nearly three times more votes than the nearest competitor, Ted Cruz.  In case you missed it, here is Rand Paul’s speech last Thursday at CPAC.  Generally, these polls are not bellwethers or harbingers, but are a useful snapshot.

Deep Blue Jersey Feeling Obamacare’s Sting

October 24, 2013

Many useful idiots here in the Garden State, who voted 58-41% to keep America an Obama Nation (including 60-70% of my county), probably didn’t see this coming:  because of the new insurance mandates under Obamacare an estimated 800,000 New Jerseyans will have their health insurance directly threatened, dropped, or face significant changes.  Even my plan [...]

Closed WWII Memorial Opened For Vets

October 2, 2013

If you haven’t been to the World War II Memorial, I can tell you that it’s on the National Mall, it has no gates and as such is open to the public at all times of the day or night.  So why should a federal government shutdown impact one’s ability to walk into an open [...]

Janet Napolitano to Resign

July 12, 2013

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano is going to resign her position in September in order to be president of the University of California. Under her tenure, we’ve had lawless borders, imposing a Dream Act-lite ICE enforcement by executive fiat, phrases like saying “man-caused disasters” rather than “terrorism” entering our lexicon, an underwear and Times [...]

Krauthammer’s Observation about Obama During Benghazi

May 29, 2013

Here is renowned Establishment intellectual Charles Krauthammer on O’Reilly the other night wanting to know something critically important about the least sexy of the three major scandals facing the Obama Nation at present: Great question!  Personally, I think he went to sleep — he had a busy day of campaigning the following day and needed [...]

Labor May Be Turning on Obamacare

May 26, 2013

If there’s one thing I’ve learned since the Obama Nation took charge, it is to always watch what the other hand is doing.  Before the Benghazi-IRS-AP scandals, it seemed like Obama was constantly moving from one issue to another and back again:  gun control to amnesty to drones to Gitmo to gun control to amnesty [...]

Brazen: New IRS Obamacare Director Oversaw IRS Malfeasance

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 [...]

Obama’s “Fair Share” Nearly the Same as Mine

April 14, 2013

If you believe “rich” is considered any household earning over $250,000 a year, and if you believe that the acceptable tax rate on the top earners is 39.6%, then wouldn’t you think someone pulling in $608,611 should pay their “fair share” of taxes?  Even if this person gave (and legitimately deducted) a substantial amount of [...]

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 [...]

Yesterday’s Economic Report Should Have Been Released on Groundhog Day

February 2, 2013

Yesterday the Labor Department released their January jobs report on the heels of news this week that America’s economy contracted 0.1% in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Not good.  Since today is Groundhog Day, I decided to post on this now rather than yesterday being that for some reason I feel like I’ve written this [...]

Hagel Hearing Debacle

January 31, 2013

In the spirit of full disclosure, we here at AOR have a history of not liking Chuck Hagel.  Mike even wrote this in September 2007: As Chris Wallace once pointed out, the man’s [Hagel] worldview on national security was closer to John Kerry’s than to the mainstream of the Republican Party. That was then.  In [...]

Secession Advocates Get Their Response From DC

January 13, 2013

I hope that all those secession petitions sent to the White House are merely symbolic, and that the people involved don’t think seriously about it.  If so, they are just as bad as the statists who want to ignore the constitutional process for their own ends.  In a re-airing of a 150-year-old settled argument, the [...]

GOP, Boehner Falling Off Their Own Cliff

January 2, 2013

What a mess! In a typical Obama Nation move, the Senate had three minutes to read and vote on a 154-page bill which was immediately sent over to the House and eventually voted on last night.  Obama didn’t even wait to sign it before he was on a plane back to Hawaii — he’ll likely [...]

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.  [...]

PETA Informally Bets on Senator’s Death

July 27, 2012

Earlier this week, someone at the USDA decided to promote “Meatless Mondays,” pushing farm state Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa to tweet his disapproval of such a “stupid” move and that he’d be eating more meat to compensate! It was typical Obama Nation nonsense to even release this memo — it’s supposed to be the [...]

State of the Union — What You Won’t Hear Tonight

January 24, 2012

The President will give his third State of the Union address tonight at 9pm EST.  It will be filled with poll-tested decisive-sounding promises of new entitlements, he may take a shot at his prospective opponents, he’ll definitely hit Congress and remind us of his order to kill Osama Bin Laden, and he’ll lie about his [...]

SCOTUS to Rule on ObamaCare

November 14, 2011

The Supreme Court has decided to hear arguments relating to the constitutionality of ObamaCare’s individual mandate.  In other words:  does the federal government have the right to compel individuals to purchase a product or face a fine.  Also, the court will likely look at “severability” in the law, or whether or not if the individual [...]

Former Obama Stooge Orszag Not Cool with All This Democracy

September 28, 2011

Recently, former White House Budget Director Peter Orszag revealed some of his thoughts regarding his government philosophy: [my bold] “…The country’s political polarization was growing worse — harming Washington’s ability to do the basic, necessary work of governing….  [W]e need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized [...]

“Gentry Liberalism” Exposed

July 18, 2011

Here’s an article I read today which exposes what the author calls “gentry liberalism”:  the movement over the last 40 years of the Democrat Party away from the regular guy towards specific corporate interests.  The date bears this out — in a period of Democrat political dominance Wall Street has done very well, while Main [...]

Filibustering the Twitter Town Hall

July 6, 2011

In order to stay hip to that young, tech-savvy part of the electorate whose future looks more and more bleak in the Obama Nation, our president decided to take some questions from them at a Twitter Town Hall*. As you can imagine, even on Twitter Obama found ways to filibuster the session by only addressing [...]

Oh That Woeful Economy!

June 1, 2011

Wall Street generally doesn’t like bad news and today it got some:  manufacturing’s down, the private sector only created about 38,000 jobs, and with new unemployment stats due on Friday, this could be a bummer of a week. But I don’t worry about Wall Street so much anymore.  When a possible misprint of a “b” [...]

Obama Just Screwed Israel

May 19, 2011

Israel, we’ve found a new Yasser Arafat for you — Barack Hussein Obama, who just threw red meat to an “Arab Spring” crowd all primed and ready for Israeli blood. Today, President Obama endorsed a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian problem, as many have including Israel herself.  However, part of the plan is Israel accepting [...]

Hillary Hearts China

May 9, 2011

Hillary Clinton inferred today that the Obama Nation does not see China as a threat.  I don’t think Hillary has seen her feet in many years either, but they’re nonetheless there. Hillary has to say this kind of stuff because the Chinese own so much of our debt and the administration hopes they will buy [...]

Obama: No on Photo

May 4, 2011

With all the confusion and contradictory statements coming from the Obama Nation, it’s hard to get a grasp on what’s really going on.  However, the President made it clear to CBS News that he will not publicly release pictures of the dead Bin Laden.  Obama doesn’t want to “spike the football” and gloat, but is [...]

Fox News Sunday Snubbed by Obama Team

March 27, 2011

Over a week after the US military began aiding the rebels in Libya, Hillary Clinton and Robert Gates made the rounds on the Sunday talk shows.  That is, made the rounds everywhere except Fox News Sunday!  I thought all the fighting in this war was over there?  I guess not.  Ignoring Fox sets terrible precedent, [...]

Bullying is Bad, but Only If You’re in a Protected Class

March 19, 2011

On the heels of the “Casey the Punisher” craze, the Holder Justice Department has sought to clarify how the federal government will deal with bullying:  to investigate or punish incidents based on one’s protected status.  As an overweight white kid, Casey would not fit the mold.  Also, Casey’s incident wouldn’t warrant any kind of federal [...]

Union Showdown in Wisconsin

February 17, 2011

Like many other states around the nation getting serious about their long-term fiscal solvency, Wisconsin is on the verge of making profound changes to their state and municipal worker health and pension benefit system.  Like New Jersey, the teacher unions are getting the most attention because they can cause the most immediate and widespread disruption.  [...]
