  • Video: Obama’s Transparency Promises

    In my latest video Op Ed, I narrate a recent opinion editorial I wrote for The California Independent Voter Network about President Obama’s mixed results on his transparency promises. You can view it below and are encouraged to share it and re-post it to your own blogs and Facebook profiles:

  • Number of American Citizens Targeted for Assassination Uncertain

    Many in the liberty movement are well aware of the Obama Administration’s ability to assassination American citizens abroad if they are considered terrorists.  However in a recent interview in the Washington Times, Obama advisor John Brennan has revealed there might be as many dozens of US citizens targeted on a assassination hit list: “There are, …

  • Another Blatant Lie

    In 2006, Senator Obama  voted against the 2006 Military Commissions Act.  Last May, he gave a speech, regarded as one of his best national security speeches, where he condemned “the flawed commissions of the last seven years” and that under him the commissions would be “in line with the rule of law.” Ready for the …

  • Deficit & Debt: Goodbye American Power

    The United States has an interesting role in global markets. Since World War II, the US has entangled itself in superfluous alliances and Keynesian markets, engaging in the same illusory markets as its European counterparts. As Jihan discussed, we have recently learned that President Barack Obama’s proposed federal budget may put the United States’ economic …

  • Obama’s New Gitmo Deadline

    Obama’s new Gitmo deadline is not this year or next year — but January 22, 2013. Political obstacles are key to this delay, but keep in mind how little Obama has accomplished of what he promised for this year. As promising as a Jan. 22, 2010 deadline sounded, some were not deceived. John Bellinger, who …

  • US Dismisses Treaty To End Korean War

    I am a little surprised that Obama’s administration would reject this treaty. This inane conflict was initiated in 1950, but apparently the deaths of thousands of soldeirs and millions of civilians are still not enough to cease this unnessecary conflict.  Isn’t more than half a century enough of a long, sensless conflict for Washington? Us officials have …

  • Hey Liberals — The Obama Administration has, is, and will continue to torture

    Those statists and “peacenik” celebrities who claim to oppose torture “on principle,” yet sanction the Obama warfare state, are deeply naive. It’s either ethical to blow children’s legs off for some “greater good,” or it is absolutely morally unacceptable. While I consider the views of a philosophical consequentialist like Henry Kissinger deplorable, he at least has some intellectual credibility that the …

  • Are the American People catching on?

    We live in an interesting political climate, with Americans still disgusted by memories of the Bush Administration but quickly realizing the O-bomb-ya administration represents little in the way of “change.” Accordingly, 38% of Americans favor neither the Democrats or the Republicans in the 2010 elections. Does anyone else sense that the establishment duopoly of pro-warfare/welfare state Republicans and …
