UNREAL: Obama Skips National Security Meeting on Russia Situation


As the situation between Russia and Ukraine develops, you’d expect our president to be keeping up-to-date on every single detail coming out.  But remember, this is Obama.  He didn’t attend national security briefings while our ambassador was in danger in Benghazi. According to tweets from White House press correspondents, Obama skipped a key national security meeting on the Ukraine situation earlier today.  Absolutely unreal. Where was he?  Golfing? The Weekly Standard writes: A White House official emailed some reporters to

New Poll Shows “Rebellion” Against Obamacare is Exploding


People across the country are openly rejecting Obama’s signature healthcare legislation as the negative effects opponents have long warned about are coming into fruition. Premiums have increased, businesses have stopped hiring, health insurance (even for those with pre-existing conditions) has been canceled, doctors are defying the law, quality of care has gone down, and people’s hours have been cut. The law is quite literally doing the opposite of what it was supposedly intended to accomplish — and people are (rightfully)

Dr. Ben Carson: Obama is Making America a “Third World Nation” (VIDEO)


Opening for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) at the Palm Beach County Republican Club’s Lincoln Day Dinner, Dr. Ben Carson warned that “irresponsible behavior in Washington” could turn the United States into “a Third World nation overnight.” Citing dangerous fiscal and monetary policies, Dr Carson said we are in a “very precarious situation.” The national debt, which exceeds $17 trillion, “is a much bigger problem than most people believe,” he continued. “Many people in our government are trying to hide that

Why Obamacare Isn’t About Healthcare… It’s About Power

President Obama Speaks At Southern Site Of The Keystone Oil Pipeline

Once you sift through all of the facts, the rhetoric, and the lies, it becomes clear that the “Affordable” Care Act is not actually about helping people… It’s about control. We are all familiar with Obama’s broken “if you like it, you can keep it” promise. The Obama Administration also promised that the “Affordable” Healthcare Act would “help children, help young adults, help seniors […] whatever it is, any precondition. And everybody will have lower rates, better quality care, and

Rick Perry: Government Should NOT Set a “Minimum Wage” (VIDEO)


Obama recently signed an executive order raising the minimum wage for federal contract workers and is now toying with the idea of raising the country’s federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. Of course, those on the left who join him in his economic illiteracy support the idea because, for whatever reason, they believe raising the minimum wage will help poor, unskilled workers. Not only will raising the minimum wage hurt poor, unskilled workers — having one at all does. Moreover, as Governor

At Least 9 States Are Rebelling Against Obamacare


It was Milton Friedman, one of the most famous free market economists to date, who said “One of the biggest mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.” I cannot think of a better case to which this quote applies than that of the so-called “Affordable” Care Act. The ACA (“Obamacare”) was created with the intentions of making quality care more accessible and less expensive. Instead, results are that the quality of care has decreased, accessibility

Obama in 2008: Bypassing Congress is “Unconstitutional”


My, what a difference just a few years can make. Before he became president, Obama was passionate about preserving the Constitution (or at least he seemed to be). In fact, he sounded more like a “right wing extremist” than the socialist dictator he’s since proven to be. Instead of saying things like “That’s the good thing as President, I can do whatever I want,” he used to speak out against then-President George W. Bush hoarding too much power in the executive

VIDEO: Trey Gowdy Takes Apart Obamacare in Less Than 3 Minutes


Unlike Speaker Boehner and other establishment Republicans, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is not afraid to stand up against the Obama administration and say exactly what needs to be said. Each and every verbal smackdown Gowdy delivers is laced with unapologetic common sense and eloquent sarcasm —  a refreshing deviation from the politically-correct status quo. The video below is no different. Rep. Gowdy absolutely destroys Obamacare in less than 180 seconds. Rep. Gowdy was asked for his take on Obama’s recent

What if Americans Rebel Against Obamacare?


If Obama himself can simply ignore laws he does not like, does that mean the American people can, too? Doctors, hospitals, and entire states across the country have all began to all openly refuse to participate in complying with the “Affordable” Care Act; this in and of itself is an act of rebellion. But what if Americans, as a whole, joined in? From Washington Examiner: Even if they know having health insurance is better than not having it, what if

Sarah Palin: We’re on a “Dangerous Path” to Tyranny


Sarah Palin recognizes that Obama’s federal overreach through constant violations of the constitution and the separation of powers is leading us down a “dangerous path” to tyranny. Obama ignores laws he doesn’t like and threatens to escalate executive actions because “waiting on legislation” just gets in the way of his attempts to hoard power. During his State of the Union address last Tuesday, he promised to use executive orders to push forth his personal agenda a total of fourteen times.
