Lurching Ludicrous

On CBS’s Face the Nation, Secretary of State John Kerry made the ridiculous claim: “Russia chose this brazen act of aggression and moved in with its forces on a completely trumped set of pre-texts claiming that people were threatened. And the fact is that’s not the act of somebody who is strong. That is the act of somebody who is acting out of weakness, and out of a certain kind of desperation.” Kerry exemplifies just how much the entire Obama administration has lost contact with reality.  To entertain the idea, much less proclaim, that Vladimir Putin is weak, demonstrates a … Continue reading

Why Work?

  Here’s a chart listing what the equivalent hourly wage is if one is on welfare:   $10.10 an hour?  Why bother.  Move to the first 34 states listed. It’s no small wonder why we have so many people on welfare.  There’s no incentive to work. ~ Hardnox

Hagel: Defense Budget Cuts ‘Unavoidable’

From the IJ Review: The Pentagon released its proposed budget on Monday, and it reflects numerous and costly cuts in pay, benefits, and subsidies for our nation’s military service members. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has labeled these cuts as “unavoidable.” At the end of America’s longest war, critics say these cuts are being borne by the Americans who sacrifice most for our country. Washington is trying to balance the budget on the backs of those who have sacrificed the most,” said Paul Rieckhoff, the founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. “We know the Defense Department must make difficult … Continue reading

Somali Pirate May Receive Asylum in US

From FrontPageMag: Apparently we just don’t have enough Somali pirates in Maine and Minnesota already. Prosecuted lured Ali Mohammed Ali to the United States for prosecution and then they ran into a Clinton judge. Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle predictably took the side of the Somali pirate, as she had taken the side of Gitmo detainee Murat Kurnaz and now Ali Mohammed Ali is trying to apply for permanent asylum in the United States. The failed prosecution of an alleged Somali pirate — and the fact that that failure could leave him living freely, and permanently, inside U.S. borders — is highlighting anew … Continue reading

Race to the Bottom

From IJ Review: Al Sharpton Brought Up ‘Race’ and ‘Racist’ on MSNBC in 2013 A Total of 314 Times The Free Beacon compiled the video, noting that the total of 314 references to race comes out to an average of more than once per broadcast. That’s almost a daily basis for the entire year. I do not recommend that you watch the whole thing or you’ll go batty – I lasted 15 seconds.

Liberals Turn on Common Core Standards

Liberals forced the Common Core education standards on America. Now liberals quoted in the New York Times are opposing the school standards, and even New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) called the scheme flawed. Will Common Core make schools worse in America? Find out what Trifecta thinks. Bill nails it when he says their fix could make it worse. Common Core, just like the so-called ACA that drove healthcare prices sky high, is an absolute disaster. And it’s a disaster that’s coming to your child’s school. ~Kathy (h/t to Hardnox)

Now THIS Is How You Do It.

I have always held Dr. Roy Spencer, former NASA chief  climate scientist, in high regard. Not only are his views on “climate change” spot-on, but NOW he has learned how to deal with the leftists.

Nice To See SOMEONE Gets It.

We all have followed the shameful story of the city of Detroit filing for bankruptcy last year. Most of the left believes it is somehow the right’s fault. I think THIS article puts the lie to THAT bullshit. From The Detroit News.com   February 19, 2014 at 1:00 am Detroit is a progressive’s perfect world. Erik Telford     Detroit, once an engine of economic growth, has been undone by a misguided belief that government and unions can create a better climate for growth and innovation than free-market entrepreneurship. And yet as the crumbling city pays for its decades of … Continue reading
