The Intercept: A SECRET FBI STUDY found that anger over U.S. military operations abroad was the most commonly cited motivation for individuals involved in cases of “homegrown” terrorism. The report also identified no coherent pattern to “radicalization,” concluding that it remained near impossible to predict future violent acts. The study, reviewed by The Intercept, was… Read more »

The Hillary Clinton gems of dishonesty are endless, and in these last weeks of the Presidential campaign, flow faster than the mighty Mississippi swollen by snow melts in the Spring. The deceptions are typical of the Clinton machine and although we often give a pass to mendacious tendencies of politicians, Clinton has been exposed to… Read more »
Today, no one seems to be paying attention to another Globalist-Obama American Freedom shrinking program. In breech of America’s constitution, Obama is handing off America’s control of the Internet. The MSM is asleep at the switch on this capitulation. A capitulation no-one is imposing on him — so why the rush? And yet, serial capitulator Obama will make this his final major act. It’s your freedom. You should care. We should all care. Why?
He hasn’t been following it closely; yet he’s willing to weigh in with his understanding of it (where have we heard this before?): “My understanding at least is he’s exercising his constitutional right to make a statement. I think there’s a long history of sports figures doing so,” Obama said Monday during a news conference… Filed under 1st Amendment, ACLU, American Exceptionalism, Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Constitution, Culture, Facebook & Social Networking, Police Authority, Race, Racism, Slavery, Social Studies, Sports
I came home last night to see my Newsfeed filled with the story of Khizr Khan’s moving speech; which was also hard-hitting against the Don: Donald Trump was speaking at an event in Iowa, complaining that America was not allowed to waterboard terrorists, when Khizr Khan and his wife walked up to the microphone at… Read more »
Someone close to me has recently spent some months confronting the abject incompetence of government bureaucracy. The lunacy of bureaucratic cover-my-back-side inactions is something most of us have experienced in frustration, regardless what corner of the government we have dealt with. Each and every time I have found myself confronting the blundering inefficiency of the… Read more »
In the age of Obama we have witnessed attacks from the left which have refashioned conventional words into insults. The terms are twisted into slurs usually intended to demean the target, when no intelligent or rational argument can be constructed to counter a position. One such word, nationalism, has achieved prominence in use as an insult in only eight years.
The ABC interview with Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook on Feb. 24, 2016, unintentionally revealed a CEO under siege, a CEO behind the eight ball, and a CEO who felt he had been betrayed by Obama. He had been double-crossed by a politician he had helped elect. Cook earnestly and effectively stated Apple’s quandary, nevertheless, he could not help but look like the deer in the head lights. He plaintively stated that he felt he should have received a heads-up from Obama.
In the sense of: First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because… Read more »
Oh, wait….wrong Turkey. Nothing quite like seeing a lame duck president pardoning the national turkey (can you tell which one’s which?). Actually, I think our comedian-in-chief is pretty good in this role. Nor did I mind his jab at GOP presidential candidates (I think some of them are turkeys). It was done in lighthearted jest….
