And they're off....2016 has officially started

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Politics

Publisher’s note:  And they’re off.  The players are starting to take the field to try out and see if they have the stuff to make the cut.  The starting line-up includes mostly conservative names like Palin, Cruz, Walker, Santorum, Perry, and even Trump, with a few liberals like Bush and Christie thrown in to test and see if the conservative base is paying attention.  

Bush and Romney, considered by “the party” as the front runners, did not show their faces in Iowa. Stay tuned.

Fox News:  DES MOINES, Iowa –  The budding Republican presidential race has kicked up a notch, after a slew of potential candidates played directly to the base at a forum in Iowa -- an event that saw Sarah Palin back in the mix, Chris Christie proving he can mingle in the heartland, and Ted Cruz and others showing their fiery conservative chops.

Several of the speakers at the daylong Iowa Freedom Summit tilted hard right in their remarks on immigration, security and taxes. And the speakers and audience members showed scorn for those who did not attend -- particularly the more moderate no-shows, like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Media bias against the GOP...what a surprise

Written by Fox News on . Posted in Politics

Publisher’s note:  It’s never been a secret that the “mainstream media” swings far to the left, and here is a clip from Boston Herald correspondent Adriana Cohen discussing the lack of coverage of the mid-term election, which is likely going to see many Democrats seeking alternate employment, and the overall lack of reporting on the current administration’s behavior.

In essence, she clearly points out that a Republican POTUS would never been allowed the pass the media affords this president and Democrats in general.

Pizza, pool, suds, and bowling...all in a days work for O'Nero

Written by Governor Sarah Palin on . Posted in Politics

Publisher’s note:  As always, Governor Sarah Palin is swinging hard at POTUS.  She wrote just an amazing Op/Ed in Fox News describing some of his shenanigans in Colorado.  She points out very clearly what we all know about him; “Rome burns” while he keeps himself busy “Racking balls, getting buzzed on suds, maybe humming “Rocky Mountain High” while kicking it in those Rockies.” Just wait until you read the part about him seeing the need to update the WH bowling alley.  There is no end to his abuses.  Kudos Governor Palin, keep hitting him and the system that allows it.

Fox News:  President Obama was absolutely swamped the other night, staving off the munchies at a pizza party in the Mile High city, hobnobbing as headliner at numerous Democrat shindigs, collecting big bucks from big donors all day.

Whew. Exhausting. Especially exhausting must be trying to change pace and pivot through the fundraising parties, knowing they’re thrown by those much maligned “fat cats” (Obama’s words, not mine).

The president conveniently disparages these fat cats in public, but in private their group hugs are a whole lot of cuddlin,’ purrin’ and rolling over for more tummy tickling from the one who feeds them. And it wasn’t hairballs any felines coughed up Tuesday just to hear Obama talk…and talk…and talk some more.

Arming our enemies...used to be called treason.

Written by Fox News on . Posted in Politics

Publisher’s note:  Once again, the same POTUS that looks for every opportunity he can find to push his agenda of disarming law-abiding US Citizens is looking to supply $500M in arms, equipment, and training to Syrian Rebels.  At least this time the administration is 'only’ going to supply those rebels who have been "vetted” and "screened.”  Yeah, we’re only going to supply the 'good’ murdering, peaceful cut-throats; that just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.  

I mean really, what could possibly go wrong with that?!  Maybe someone should remind POTUS that it’s these same Syrian Rebels that have been video recorded literally cannibalizing their fallen enemies. Oh I know, it was 'only’ one who did that on video while he and his cheering comrades were shouting "allahu ackbar,” and he explained it away when interviewed by BBC saying he 'had’ to do it in order to strike terror in the enemy.  

So I guess that makes it all jiggy with potus and the Senate Armed Services Committee.  Interesting note that they invoked the name of allah while butchering a fellow muslim who worshiped the same 'deity.’  

How about that every time we supply such aide to any groups in this region, they wind up using the weaponry and training against our own troops?!  Let’s not forget that with the exception of our friends in Israel, everyone in that region despises us, and should be looked upon at very least as our potential enemies.  I might add, it seems that everyone in the WH despises us as well.

So I have a question for POTUS.  If you feel we have all this money just burning a hole in our pockets, would it be too much to ask that it be spent on things like the basics for our homeless Vets, maybe build a real wall on our southern border, tapping our own oil and natural gas reserves, perhaps allow for two or three refineries, or how about paying our troops $15.00 an hour instead of fast food workers?  And I know this is just crazy talk, but could we start paying down our debt?!  It’s amazing how quickly POTUS forgets about his famous 'sequester’ when it fits his destructive agenda. 

Fox News:  President Barack Obama is asking Congress for $500 million to train and arm vetted members of the Syrian opposition, as the U.S. grapples for a way to stem a civil war that has also fueled the Al Qaeda inspired insurgency in neighboring Iraq.

The military training program would deepen the Obama administration's involvement in the more than four-year conflict between rebels and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad. If approved by Congress, the program would supplement a covert train-and-assistance program run by U.S. intelligence agencies.

The Senate Armed Services Committee has already approved a version of the sweeping defense policy bill authorizing the Defense Department to provide "equipment, supplies, training and defense services" to elements of the Syrian opposition that have been screened.

More Regs for Federal Contractors

Written by Fox News on . Posted in Politics

Publisher’s note:  With each stroke of his mighty pen and each of his dubious phone calls, I get more and more convinced of his total commitment of our demise.  The main job of the potus is to protect and defend the nation.  While failing miserably at that via his incessant neutering of our military and pandering to our circling enemies, he busies himself implementing his dictatorial agenda.

In this latest assault on American business, he is forcing Federal Contractors, who are already greatly burdened with over-reaching compliance regulations, to supply information as to salary comparisons between genders and races.  While this may sound like no big deal to the casual observer, it is very costly for business and allows for massive skewing of data within the government agencies.  For example, such regulations very often don’t take into account such things as the longevity of employment of many individuals, and merely focus on the agendized intent of the regulation.  

Failure to comply or errors in reporting can result in huge fines to companies that are often already struggling.

Fox News:  President Obama is imposing his policies directly on federal contractors.  This week, he will sign an executive order that would prohibit federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their pay with each other. The prohibition on the wage "gag rules" is similar to language in a Senate bill aimed at closing a pay gap between men and women. That legislation is scheduled for a vote this week, though it is not likely to pass.

In addition, Obama on Tuesday will direct the Labor Department to adopt regulations requiring federal contractors to provide compensation data based on sex and race. The president will sign the executive order and the presidential memo during an event at the White House where he will be joined Lilly Ledbetter, whose name appears on a pay discrimination law Obama signed in 2009.

This week's steps showcase Obama's efforts to take action without congressional approval and illustrate how even without legislation, the president can drive policy on a significant segment of the U.S. economy. At the same time, it also underscores the limits of his ambition when he doesn't have the backing of Congress for his initiatives.

Republicans maintain that Obama is pushing his executive powers too far and that he should do more to work with Congress. His new executive orders are sure to prompt criticism that he is placing an undue burden on companies and increasing their costs.
