Does this woman have any shame?

Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton took offense to remarks by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy that the ongoing House select committee investigation into the Benghazi attacks is hurting her campaign, and used members of the U.S. military as political pawns in disparaging the probe.

Clinton appeared Wednesday on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” and told host Al Sharpton that McCarthy’s comment “demonstrates unequivocally that this was always meant to be a partisan political exercise.”

She then claimed the pursuit for answers to why four Americans died in the attack is somehow an affront not only to those who lost their lives, but to all members of the military.

“I feel like it does a grave disservice and dishonors not just the memory of the four that we lost, but of everybody who has served our country,” Clinton said.

But veterans weren’t buying the political spin…

Another Lie of Progressivism

It must be emphasized that progressive government, contrary to popular myth, exacerbates racial, ethnic and religious tensions and does not ameliorate them.  Every progressive policy, involving as it does state violence, creates winners and losers and thus resentment among the losers.

Looming Republican Surrender on Spending Caps?

Originally posted on International Liberty:

What’s worse, Democrats who deliberately seek to make government bigger because of their ideological belief in statism, or Republicans who sort of realize that big government is bad yet make government bigger because of incompetence?

I’m not sure, though this is a perfect example of why I often joke that Washington is divided between the Evil Party and the Stupid Party.

And the fight over spending caps is a perfect example.

President Obama and the Democrats despise this small bit of fiscal discipline, which was created as part of the 2011 Budget Control Act (BCA). They’re aggressively seeking to eviscerate the law, particularly the sequester enforcement mechanism. And since they believe in bigger government, their actions make sense.

Republicans, by contrast, claim to believe in smaller government and fiscal responsibility. So they should be in the driver’s seat on this fight. After all, the BCA is the law…

Congress Should Impeach EPA Head Gina McCarthy – And Then a Whole Bunch of Other Bureaucrats – Tea Party Nation

The national Republican Party is currently in the midst of a slow-motion train wreck.  Their presidential primary has amply demonstrated their Base’s profound disaffection.  You can call it anger, you can call it delusion – you can call it a tuna fish sandwich.  But when 70+% of your voters don’t like anyone having anything to do with anything you’ve been doing – you absolutely call it a problem.


And when it’s this big, it’s a problem for the Party – not their voters.  There’s an old banking joke: If someone owes the bank $10,000 – that someone has a problem.  But if someone owes the bank $10 million – the bank has a problem.  70+% is the bank having a problem.  


The Party remains somewhere in Egypt – along the banks of Denial.  It likes to dismiss these people with incredibly flattering terms like “Crazies.”  And elected officials these people actually like with terms of endearment like “Jackass.”  Because you always go far when insulting the majority of your voters. 


Speaker John Boehner is turning in his gavel and leaving Congress – apparently because everyone thinks he’s done a phenomenal job.  And on his way out the door he is denouncing his voters for having “unrealistic expectations.”  He would know – they have them in large part because his Party and their campaign minions set them every election cycle when they’re lying to get votes. 


They last October ran thousands of ads promising to defund ObamaCare and President Barack Obama’s unConstitutional fiat amnesty.  People then ridiculously expected them to defund ObamaCare and Obama’s amnesty.  Talk about “unrealistic expectations.”  Immediately after the election, the GOP funded both.  And are now saying to their voters what Otter said to Flounder in Animal House: “You f***ed up – you trusted us.”


All of this is part of a larger problem.  The GOP appears to be at best utterly indifferent to – at worst complacently complicit with – this President’s all-encompassing, omni-directional unConstitutional overreaches.  He and his many, many political bureaucrats are every second of every day dramatically exceeding their legal bounds to exponentially grow government.  And the GOP has done just about nothing to stop any of it. 


We the People gave the GOP the Congress – and thus the power of the purse.  Yet every time a potential political scrap looms anywhere way out on the distant horizon – the GOP Leadership goes into a preemptive cringe.  And screeches from their crouch that they pinky-swear-promise they absolutely will not use their power of the purse.  One would think that if you from a deep sleep shook awake Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, he would reflexively yell “No shutdown!”


What HAS the GOP done?  Well, they sued ObamaCare.  Which is at best extra-Constitutional – I don’t recall any of our Founders mentioning calling the trial bar as a remedy to tyranny.  But there is a non-shutdown, Constitutional remedy at their disposal – they can impeach bureaucrats. 


A government shutdown (which is really only ever like a 13%-of-the-government shutdown) is inarguably high profile – and thus the merest mention thereof causes Republicans to run for a corner in which to collectively cower.  A Presidential impeachment is also very visible. 


But the American people’s initial response to impeaching a bureaucrat would most likely be “What?  Who?”  The repeal of these faceless cogs in Obama’s Machine would allow the GOP to not just pretend to oppose this President’s agenda – but ACTUALLY oppose this President’s agenda.  In a way that has little prospective political cost – and thus shouldn’t cause their fragile constitutions any discomfort.  And it affords them opportunities to message on the concepts and advantages of legal and less government. 


Arguably no bureaucrat deserves impeachment more than Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) head Gina McCarthy.  Arizona Republican Congressman Paul Gosar rightly thinks it’s time

For far too long, Congress has allowed unelected bureaucrats and executive branch officials to slowly bend and break the laws of this country in order to further their own partisan political agendas. We have reached a breaking point where the American people have no faith in the fundamental checks and balances put in place by our founders to protect  our liberties and freedoms.


On numerous occasions, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy broke the law by lying to Congress in order to force misguided and overreaching regulations, which have no scientific basis, down our throats. Perjury before Congress is perjury to the American people and an affront to the core principles of our Republic and the rule of law…


Lying to Congress is not an unserious thing.  This Administration’s first Attorney General, Eric Holder, was found in Contempt of Congress for withholding information therefrom.  A problem with a Contempt of Congress charge for the Attorney General is – the Attorney General is the one who is supposed to mete out punishment.  When the Executive Branch is supposed to discipline itself,….


Impeachment bypasses this self-dealing.  Congress impeaches – the bureaucrat goes.  Miss McCarthy repeatedly lied about policies that are incredibly damaging to just about every sector of the private economy.  She repeatedly lied so as to protect and advance their anti-capitalism agenda – at the expense of the rule of law and Congressional oversight.  She needs to go.


The GOP should remove her – and use the process as an opportunity to detail the very obvious case for why. And when they see the sky doesn’t come crashing down upon them – they should feel liberated to lather, rinse and repeat with all manner of McCarthy’s out-of-control colleagues.


And as an added bonus – their Base will love it.  It is the very good policy – that is also very good politics.  If the GOP wants to save themselves from a fate worse than Trump – they should get busy doing it. 

Billboard Warns: “Prepare For War”

The Obama File

The European Union Times reports on a new billboard off of Interstate 70 in Missouri provides a short “citizens guide to REVOLUTION of a corrupt government” and issues a call to “PREPARE FOR WAR.”

This billboard replaces one that warned that the socialist “Obama-Nation” is “coming for you.”  It’s unclear who the owner of the billboard is, but the first one was the work of a “Missouri businessman.”

While it’s unclear who owns it, the Lafayette County Republican Central Committee seems to endorse it.

From the comments:  Dale Caruso writes, “It is just getting more and more interesting — or perhaps ominous would be a better word.  Since the beginning of this year, it has been like watching a faucet drip — now it is becoming more like watching a small steady stream.  IF people continue to think of this in terms of “Libs”…

The Revolution Has Begun

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it started, but with Speaker John Boehner’s resignation announcement, there’s no doubt the revolution has begun. Perhaps it was the first time you bookmarked the Drudge Report. Or maybe, when at the Drudge Report, you said: “Who is this Breitbart?” Eric Cantor’s primary loss to Dave Brat was certainly a moment when the revolution was stirring and produced tangible results rather than just internet narrative.

Regardless of when the revolution started, it’s clearly underway.

U.S. will reach 400 Million Private Firearms by end of Obama Presidency

The National Instant Check System (NICS)  performs a check when people buy firearms from federally licensed dealers in the United States.  It is also used to perform background checks on people applying for firearm carry permits in those states where such permits are required or offered by law.  As there are now over 15 million carry permits in the United States, and firearm sales numbers are in the 10 to 20 million range per year, you can see…

​The Obama administration quietly shipped Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard back to the Wahhabist Kingdom of Saudi Arabia last week despite warnings that the Muslim terrorist remains a serious threat to the United States.

The newly released terrorist detainee is Abdul Shalabi, 39, who trained to be the 20th hijacker for the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Shalabi was set free even though military officials deemed him too dangerous to be unleashed on the world and too valuable as an intelligence asset to be released from U.S. custody….

Is Arctic Sea Ice Set to Disappear? – The Last Resistance

IcyAlGoreClimate scientists are saying that Arctic Sea ice is on the verge of disappearing in the summers. Irreversibly. But other data indicate otherwise.


You hear it all around from global warming alarmists: Arctic Sea ice is melting at an “irreversible” rate due to global warming, and it won’t be able to recover. But it seems the reports of Arctic Sea ice disappearance have been greatly exaggerated:

In fact, Arctic sea ice extent as a whole seems to be stabilizing despite this year’s record low maximum in February. NSIDC data shows Arctic sea ice extent is currently within the normal range based on the 1981 to 2010 average extent.

“Global sea ice is at a record high, another key indicator that something is working in the opposite direction of what was predicted,” Dr. Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Forum, told the U.K. Express in January.

“Most people think the poles are melting… they’re not,” he said. “This is a huge inconvenience that reality is now catching up with climate alarmists, who were predicting that the poles would be melting fairly soon.”

The Arctic Sea ice trends are actually quite variable. About as variable as glacier melt, actually. Which means that the only way to create a compelling trend is to cherry-pick data. Which seems to be just about exactly what global warming alarmists have been doing.


This continues a much more predictable trend among global warming scientists. You can’t entirely blame them. The fact is that creating predictions for complex and highly variable natural phenomena is a bit of a crap shoot. Things seem to be going a certain direction until they’re not. And even when you are able to accurately graph certain trends, the causation for those trends is not necessarily any easier to ascertain. Even if there has been a warming or a melting trend, that doesn’t necessarily mean that human involvement or greenhouse gases are to blame.

And the vanishing point on these trends continues to fluctuate. Some climate scientists are saying that the Arctic Sea will be free of ice during summers as soon as 2040. They thought it might be earlier than that just a few years ago. But the change of things keeps changing, and coming up with accurate long-term predictions continues to be aiming at a moving target. The only thing that hasn’t changed is the agenda. And that’s what really concerns me.

The failed state of America – Tea Party Nation


The words “failed state” and America are not used too often in the same sentence but perhaps it is time that they were. 

The words “failed state” and Mexico are used frequently in the same sentence and there is a reason for that.  Now something is happening in America that has been happening in Mexico that may make those words applicable here.


What is it?


Recently Republican Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson toured the Arizona border along with Sheriff Paul Babeu.  The tour was to highlight the issue of illegal immigration for Carson’s campaign.  But the event highlighted something else that the Democrats and the Washington establishment don’t want to talk about.


We have lost control of part of America.


Sheriff Babeu pointed out to Carson that upwards of 70 miles into the United States, drug cartels control the countryside.  Think about that for a second.  Up to 70 miles north of the Mexican border, drug cartels have operational control of the countryside.


The definition of sovereignty for a nation is not only national borders but the ability to control the territory within those borders.


America is losing its national sovereignty to Mexican drug cartels and most of the major candidates for President don’t care. Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush don’t want to do anything about the border.  They do want to give Amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens who broke America’s laws to enter this nation.  They don’t have time for the American victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens.


A few years ago, I was on the Arizona border and I spoke with ranchers who lived there.  They were prisoners on their own property.  The could not leave their ranches for more than a few hours. If they did, their homes would be looted and their property destroyed. 


The destruction of American sovereignty is being aided and abetted by the usual left wing suspects.  Left wing lawyers are suing the Border Patrol over the death of an illegal alien. This illegal alien was a passenger on a boat trying to smuggle illegal aliens into the United States.  The driver of the boat refused to stop and eventually the Border Patrol boat and the smuggler’s boat collided.  The illegal alien was thrown into the ocean and died.


A criminal is killed while committing a crime and the left wants to sue America for it.


In Texas, ranchers live in fear of illegal aliens being injured while trespassing on their property.  Again, they are worried about being sued by leftwing lawyers.


There is a simple solution. Congress can pass a law that states anyone in this nation illegally lacks the standing to sue.  But Congress won’t do that because a majority of them support illegal aliens more than they support real Americans.


There is a reason why Donald Trump is surging in the polls.  He is speaking about this issue when the Democrats and most Republicans wish this issue would just go away. 


America is losing her sovereignty to a failed state.  The tragedy is neither the Republicans nor the Democrats give a damn as long as they can pander to a group they think will extend their grip on power. 


The sad truth is there isn’t any difference between Democrats and the Establishment Republicans.
