The Party Is Over – Now Down To Brass Tacks

The Party Is Over, Now Down To Brass Tacks No More Poli-Babble, Speak Plainly Or Go Home   One of many reasons citizens have gotten so angry over the years is the willy-nilly efforts of lawmakers who without thought to end-users (citizens, small businesses and private/public businesses) throw bills into the wash along with the other dirty linens, then churn out reams and volumes of sanctimonious BS. Then like pompous toads, they stick out their chests and say “what a good person am I.” Once they finish and a bill actually is passed, it appears they no longer own its effects … Continue reading

January 15, 2017 French Summit on Palestine and Israel – Kerry and Obama’s Next Volley?

  Will this be Obama’s last “FU” to Trump and Netanyahu? On December 25, 2016 in Haaretz, Netanyahu warned that additional international measures on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict were possible before U.S. President Barack Obama steps down on January 20. “The issue is still hot and this is not the end of it,” Netanyahu told the ministers before the weekly cabinet meeting, referring to Friday’s UN Security Council resolution censuring the Israeli settlements. Netanyahu has claimed openly since that horrific Obama/Kerry debacle that according to information that reached Israel, there was no doubt that the Obama administration was behind the resolution, … Continue reading

Statement by Secretary Jeh Johnson on the Designation of Election Infrastructure as a Critical Infrastructure Subsector Release Date: January 6, 2017 For Immediate Release I have determined that election infrastructure in this country should be designated as a subsector of the existing Government Facilities critical infrastructure sector.

California Has Gone Into The Twilight Zone

I always knew California liberals were strange but their SB-1322 totally proves either they have NO idea of how to prepare a bill or more likely the depravity of the state liberals including the current governor. Take for instance the opening statement of this bill which is due to go into law now having been approved by Governor Brown in September 2016. CHAPTER 654 An act to amend Sections 647 and 653.22 of the Penal Code, relating to minors. SB 1322, Mitchell. Commercial sex acts: minors. Existing law makes it a crime to solicit or engage in any act of … Continue reading

Obama’s Legacy? Abandonment of Allies and Reset of Terrorism Policies

    Walid Phares commented on Fox News concerning moving forward on international and national failed policies of the Obama administration and radical terrorism. What is Obama’s international legacy? “It will be a long time before we can determine that. It is the abandonment of allies and changing the course of world’s perception and image of the US as biggest victim that I can see in the region and the world.” he answered. While much of what he said was spot on, I have to say I disagree with his “long time”. Given all the cuts and statements made across … Continue reading

Defund or Choose What to Fund in the UN – Difficult Choice, Thanks To Obama and Kerry

There is an argument both for and against totally defunding or leaving the UN. The question is not an easy one to determine. On one hand we know that the UN has overreached its mandate for many years. On the other, there are some things that have value like health and humanitarian care. Can we completely remove our influence within the UN when the other actors are mostly socialist in nature and anti-Semitic? Isolationism in today’s world is not acceptable, reasonable, or responsible. How do we go forward after this past week’s Israel betrayal or regain the trust of allies … Continue reading

Mali Connection To Surge In Refugees

Mali Connection To Surge In Refugees Mali and neighboring Guinea have been in the news for more than two years now after Ebola virus rampaged through the populations.

Rep. Lee Zeldin on Obama breaking diplomatic protocol

The resolution was  initially submitted by Jordan and the PA as part of the bureaucratic process by which the World Heritage Committee reaffirmed the placement of Jerusalem and its Old City ramparts on its World Heritage in Danger … Continue reading

President’s Use of Written Means of Communication As Law

There is so much confusion and disagreement on executive orders, memorandums, prosecutorial discretion, proclamations, and such that perhaps a closer look by Congress is needed to better define their authority. Obama’s use of these vehicles to bypass congress is not new. Others have attempted or utilized them when needed. The problem comes when the abuse of overreaching law making crosses into uncharted territory or congress is hamstrung in lawmaking through their orders. Apparently all forms of written communication like orders are considered laws if a president writes them very much like a Chief Executive Officer in a corporation. Just like … Continue reading
