  • Students to NSA: ‘We’d Rather Die than Lose our Liberty’

    The College Fix has identified college students from across the nation who agreed that if the U.S. government were to end its unconstitutional surveillance state and warrantless spy programs tomorrow — and the students were to die a month later in some sort of terrorist bombing — they would count their death as the justifiable price for …

  • The Obama Administration and Drone Strikes

    “These strikes are legal, they are ethical, and they are wise,” said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney as he solemnly spoke of President Obama’s use of drone warfare. Carney cited careful consideration of the government, the President’s responsibility, and anti-terrorism as ethical grounds for the use of drones, saying, “ (The) President takes his …

  • Double Dip Recessions and What to Do about Them

    In stark contrast to a story last week that painted President Fanklin Roosevelt as the greatest U.S. President of all time, a story in today’s Washington Post asks if President Obama isn’t perhaps following in the same economic missteps that FDR took in the mid to late 1930’s.  By fixating on the debt and stimulus …

  • Is President Obama about to surrender your 2nd Amendment Rights to the U.N.?

    For months, I’ve seen blog and forum posts insisting that President Obama and his cronies are determined to take guns and ammunition away from this country’s citizens.  Most of these posts are located on conspiratorial type websites that typically serve as good entertainment but lack a certain aura of credibility.  Today though, I stumbled over …

  • Obama Orders Assasination of US Citizen — without Trial

    The president has authorized the killing of Anwar Awlaki, a US citizen, without trial. This is based on a “belief” that he is participating in attacks against the US. Reports the New York Times: Obama administration has taken the extraordinary step of authorizing the targeted killing of an American citizen, the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who is believed to have …

  • U.S. to depoly Patriot missiles in Middle East

    While at every turn President Obama attempts to distance himself from the policy decisions of the previous administration in Washington, the President sure seems to be following the same playbook in regards to foreign policy.  Several days ago during the State of the Union address, President Obama made a very decisive statement about Iran’s ‘nuclear capability’:  …

  • The God-King Preaches to a Dutiful Flock

    I am eating an oh-so-delicious crispy chicken lunch right now at my favorite spot on campus, the Skutt Student Center. The only irritating aspect about the SSC is that  the big screen TV’s “coincidentally” always seem to be on CNN with full-blast volume when the God-King is making one of his allegedly  historical, yet basically conventional, political speeches. Even wired with the supposedly sound-proof special headphones …

  • Cash for Caulkers

    If you regularly watch or read interviews with Peter Schiff, you’ll know he has long predicted a ‘dough-for-dumps’ program.  Like many of the other successes he’s had in forecasting the economic situation we are in, it appears his dough-for-dumps scenario may be realized to an extent.  Expect to see it announced next week by the …

  • Nightly Roundup 10/29/2009

    The Dems unveiled their health care reform bill —  which included a so-called “public option.” His “health care” plan aside, Obama’s fiscal and monetary policies aren’t working, argues FEE. Old Right/libertarian Republicans are the party’s only chance for revival, opines Dan McCarthy in AmCon. In addition to his improvements on foreign policy, George Will is …
