ICE Officer Slams Illegals’ Appearance at SOTU

From the Daily Caller: The head of the union representing Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers and staff issued a harsh rebuke to President Obama for having illegal immigrants in the chamber during his State of the Union address. “According to news accounts, the President has once again invited illegal immigrants to the State of the Union — and yet the President still refuses to meet with ICE officers,” National ICE Council head and ICE officer Chris Crane in a statement. “We have a President who will provide those illegally in the US with the seat of honor at one of the most … Continue reading

No Surprise: Minimum wage hike backers rarely pay interns

From the Daily Caller: Just because lawmakers want businesses to pay more for entry-level workers, doesn’t mean they are willing to do so themselves. According to a new study by the Employment Policies Insitute (EPI), only four percent of the 210 lawmakers who pledged their allegiance to a bill raising the minimum wage pay their interns. The Fair Minimum Wage Act would increase the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour. EPI found that 96 percent of its House and Senate supporters give their interns a minimum wage of zero. This includes the authors of the bill, Iowa … Continue reading

Conservative Response to SOTU

Ted Cruz’s response to barry the bullshitter: —oo— The TEA Party response by Senator Mike Lee: —oo— Senator Rand Paul’s response:   All three were good but I particularly liked what Senator Cruz (the best response imo) and Senator Paul had to say.   The GOP’s official response (not included here) was from Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers.  It was a polite speech but lacked any substance and was intended to project how much Republicans love women.  This was the speech aired by the lamestream media.  The GOP should not be surprised that their message falls on deaf ears when a milquetoast response is … Continue reading

Divide and conquer in SOTUS

Bold is out, achievable is in, and division is always on the menu.   Reports say Obama will not make any “bold claims” in his 5th SOTU. When has he not made bold, in your face announcements? But that is his forte. I know this because AOL news says so. As adept as this pretender is at lying, you can probably take that with a half-grain of salt. Whatever he says, always expect the opposite. BTW, it might surprise a few but I give him credit. Congratulations, Obama, for forcing people to talk about a serious issue. No, I don’t … Continue reading

Barry’s Not Black – Is He Indonesian?

The information in this video could possibly be the missing link to O’s real identity. It might also explain why Loretta Fuddy was the only one who perished in the helicopter crash in Hawaii. Here is an excerpt, found on another blog, dated May 31, 2011 with additional information and meanings of the translations: Soetoro in the name, in the prefix of SOE links the name to Javanese roots and not Indonesian alone. Why this matters is that Indonesian names reflect region, family and often religion. It is quite obvious or should have been by now in no one has … Continue reading

The Six Worst Members of Congress

Abby Martin calls out 6 of the most corrupt and least popular members of Congress, going over some of the conflicts of interests and blatant hypocrisy that have come to characterize the 113th Congress. This is probably the tip of the iceberg.  There are a total of 535 members of Congress, each with their own program of self enrichment.  All legal of course. Granted, there are exceptions and we should not paint all of them with the same brush, but…. ~ Hardnox

Here Is ANOTHER Ticking Timebomb.

All the MASSIVE debt the Obama Regime has run up, what with the profligate spending on EVERYTHING, here is an area THIS bunch COULD be “burned at the stake” over. The House of Cards.

Sassy Candidate Has a Zinger for Obama

From IJ Review: Texas candidate Katrina Pierson rolled out the sassiest campaign ads in recent memory: Katrina Pierson is challenging Pete Sessions for a U.S. Congressional seat, and has been endorsed by Senator Ted Cruz, who has called her “utterly fearless.” ~~~~~~~~~ You go, girl! and expect to be audited in …3…2…. ~Kathy

Vallely, chairman of Stand Up America, has just unveiled the liberals’ worst nightmare, a plan to unite the tea party into a vast army to turn America back to its constitutional roots.

We must save America and today we’re going to do it,” Vallely said. “America is at a crossroads, and it’s up to us to take the right road and get this country back again. We’ve … Continue reading

The Life of an Illegal Immigrant

Twenty years ago, at the age of 30, this woman swam the Rio Grande River to get to America and make a better life for herself. See for yourself how she’s doing. She’s getting $250 in food stamps and $700 in social security. That’s just $950 a month – not much to live on, but you don’t need much if your housing and medications are paid for too. That’s our money the government is giving her. Now multiply that by the millions more just like her, and the hundreds more who come across the border on a daily basis. Did she … Continue reading

What WE Are Up Against.

While we here at Hardnox and Friends tend to focus on issues with a national view, we also have HUGE state fights on our hands this election year as well. One of the RICHEST women in the state, wife of the owner of Amway, Betsy DeVos, thinks WE are THE PROBLEM with the Republican brand these days. From The Detroit DeVos calls out GOP culture of intolerance.     By Nolan Finley  The Detroit News  19 Jan 2014 Betsy DeVos, the ultimate establishment Republican, is calling out the GOP’s national leadership for failing to stand up to “intolerance and insensitivity” … Continue reading

Judge Pirro: Administration Lied to Us About Benghazi

  Judge Jeanine has a Congressman on and they discuss the lies surrounding the Benghazi cover-up and the IRS cover-up. “we are slowly getting there” In the meantime, the administration is dragging their feet on information. It’s good to know Benghazi is still on the front burner. ~ Hardnox

The Dirty Secrets of Omnibus Negotiations

From Kimberly Strassel at WSJ: The Dems are up to more of their dirty tricks, and once again, it looks like the R’s are aiding and abetting them.   IRS Targeting and 2014 Democrats are working hard to make sure conservative groups are silenced in the 2014 midterms.   President Obama and Democrats have been at great pains to insist they knew nothing about IRS targeting of conservative 501(c)(4) nonprofits before the 2012 election. They’ve been at even greater pains this week to ensure that the same conservative groups are silenced in the 2014 midterms. That’s the big, dirty secret of the omnibus … Continue reading

Obama: ‘I’ll act on my own’

From The Washington Times: Again promising to act on his own wherever and whenever he can, President Obama on Saturday said the U.S. is on the cusp of an economic breakthrough but accused Republicans of standing in the way. “We are primed to bring back more of the good jobs claimed by the recession and lost to overseas competition in recent decades. But that requires a year of action,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. “And I want to work with Congress this year on proven ways to create jobs, like building infrastructure and fixing our broken immigration system. … Continue reading

15 More Benghazi Related Murders

From Freedom Outpost: Does it Matter Now Hillary? Wednesday the Senate finally made a statement about Benghazi. A bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee has found that the State Department could have likely prevented the death of  four Americans in Benghazi if they would not have ignored the intelligence reports and pleas for assistance from our diplomatic mission.  The findings are that increased security was needed. USA Today reports: Congressional Democrats for the first time joined the GOP to  condemn the State Department for refusing security measures they say could have prevented the deaths of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi. The report, worked on for months and released Wednesday by a  bipartisan Senate intelligence … Continue reading

THIS Is How To Treat Mouthy Liberals.

In a contract dispute over “carriage fees”, what a cable or pay-tv system pays per subscriber to carry a particular program, or channel, Direct TV decided to drop the Weather Channel.

A Few Tidbits in the Omnibus Bill

From Canada Free Press: WARNING: PORK ALERT !! Apparently things like vice presidential entertainment, wild horse adoption and the future State Elections Commission of Puerto Rico are crucial items since Nancy told us ‘there’s nothing left to cut’ and the ‘cupboard is bare’. Here are just a few tidbits from the bill that, by the way, exceeded the cap by $45 billion. Pg. 18: $54,000,000 For Government Employees To Combat Wood And Tree Pests: Under the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the bill provides $54 million in salaries “for tree and wood pests.” (For $54 million, I’ll do it by myself.) Pg. 125: … Continue reading

Creative Accounting Used in Budget Bill

From Breitbart: A document published by the Senate Steering Committee Tuesday found that there is actually $18 billion more than advertised in spending in the omnibus spending bill House and Senate establishment leaders introduced late Monday. The Senate Steering Committee, chaired by Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and vice-chaired by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), found that the omnibus spending bill uses a gimmick called CHIMPS, or changes in mandatory programs, to hide $18 billion in more spending. “The omnibus contains $18 billion in CHIMPS,” the Steering Committee added later in the document. “$9.4 billion of that total is from the Crime … Continue reading

Senator Mike Lee on the Federal Register

Take a look at this picture Senator Lee posted on his Facebook page. He had this to say about it: “Behold my display of the 2013 Federal Register.  It contains over 80,000 pages of new rules, regulations, and notices all written and passed by unelected bureaucrats.  The small stack of papers on top of the display are the laws passed by elected members of Congress and signed into law by the president.” Amazing but not surprising. This probably pales in comparison to the stack of EOs that were signed in 2013. ~Kathy
