Iran is NOT abiding by its nuclear deal with Barack Obama

And the evidence just keeps piling up. Here’s more: “Truth Catches the Iran Deal; Obama trumpets an agreement that Tehran violates at every turn.” We always could count on Iran’s good will and honest, right? Like when they took U.S. diplomates hostages. Read why Americans need to learn about the nation’s most ignored war. Find out what freelance... Read more »

It's time for Congress to debate a declaration of war on ISIS

Instead of waiting around for President Barack Obama to do something (besides doing the wave at a Cuban baseball game or playing golf), Congress ought to exercise its exclusive power to declare war on ISIS. Nothing in the U.S. Constitution requires Congress to wait around for the president to send it a request to declare war.... Read more »

Mr. Obama, give us your best shot for the new Supreme Court justice

Bring it on. Republicans shouldn’t be afraid of who President Barack Obama will nominate to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. I say, Mr. President,  send the best ya got. Find someone, if you can, that won’t anger the radical left or the hard right. See if you can follow... Read more »

The Illinois legislature is the perfect place for Barack Obama to show up

What could be more fitting? A bumbling president addressing the disastrous Illinois legislature. How appropriate that President Barack Obama should hang out with the Democrat-controlled legislature that has  left the state of Illinois  teetering on the brink of a fiscal collapse.

UPATE: 12 important, unanswered questions about Iran's hijacking of two U.S. Navy riverine boats in the Persian Gulf

UPDATE: One explanation was that there was a GPS problem that lead to a navigation error that brought the two boats into Iranian waters. I don’t know; that doesn’t sound realistic to me.  As a former U.S. Navy officer, I have to demur from the Obama administration’s self-congratulations for peacefully “resolving” the capture and imprisonment...

Obama's 10 state-of-the-union lies

Breibart lists them in this factcheck: (For details, click on the link.) “[W]e’ve done all this while cutting our deficits by almost three-quarters.” “Anyone claiming that America’s economy is in decline is peddling fiction.”  “That’s what the Affordable Care Act is all about.

Thank Obama, progressives for Donald Trump

Gee, Mr. President, thanks for giving us Donald Trump. Thanks also go to the legions of progressives whose radical, left-wing falderal and politically correct demands have brought out the worst in Americans. That would be Donald Trump.
