Rep. Louie Gohmert pinpoints why people are so concerned with the military exercises
The Problem with Jade Helm

 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

Jade Helm 15, a large-scale military operation conducted by U.S. Army Special Operations Command and service members from the military’s four branches, scheduled to take place in several states between July 15 and September 15, 2015, has elicited a firestorm of criticism. Many have gone so far as to claim the exercises are a prelude to the imposition of martial law, especially in Texas, one of the states designated as “hostile” territory. However, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) puts the issue in the proper perspective, noting why it's reasonable that Americans would be concerned about the operation.

How the Media Got Into Bed with the Clintons
 By Cliff Kincaid Full Story

Republican operative Karl Rove writes in The Wall Street Journal that “few demonstrate as much contempt for journalists as do Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.” That may be true for Obama, but Mrs. Clinton has taken a different approach. Her platforms, the Clinton Foundation and its project, the Clinton Global Initiative, have given the appearance of humanitarian work, drawing many big names from the media into her network of influence. No wonder they treat her with deference and respect. The media have been compromised.

Protecting Thought or Paychecks?

I spent yesterday evening driving to our local high school, which is the polling place for any votes that relate to membership on the local school board. Equally important, but much more inflammatory, the school budget is also subject to approval through votes by local citizens.

Global Warming Now Responsible for Islamic Terrorism
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

President Barack Obama’s attempts to provide cover for Islamic terrorists by first declaring global warming/climate change “a national security threat” and then excusing their ongoing carnage with the absurd claim that it was global warming that set them off, must be the biggest political scam in all of human history.

The Rise of Democracy, and the Fall of the Electoral College
 By Douglas V. Gibbs Full Story

James Madison wrote five times in his essays of the Federalist Papers that we are a republic, and then explained what a republic is. He believed this to be necessary not only so that the Constitution may be properly understood, but because in their argument against the Constitution, the statists of the era were trying to convince the people that a republic, and a democracy, are the same thing. Democracy, in reality, is a transitional form of government, one that would lead America from being a republic to an oppressive oligarchy, argued many of the Founding Fathers. We must never be a democracy.

The Benghazi-Syria Weapons Connection
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

The shameless lying that has formed the heart of the Obama administration's Benghazi narrative took another turn yesterday. Documents obtained by Fox News reveal that U.S. intelligence agencies were "fully aware" weapons were being moved from Benghazi to Syria before the attack on Sept. 11, 2012, that claimed the lives of ambassador Christopher Stevens,Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, and diplomat Sean Smith. The documents also put the lie to President Obama's assertion that the rise of ISIS caught the administration "by surprise."

Iran - another predator is set free during Obama's cadence

They are not empires yet. They don’t have enough power or the resources for becoming such. However, all of them - Russians, Turks, Arabs, Persians - are dreaming about empires, recalling old conquests and victories. And all of them should be grateful to the West, and the US president in particular.

North Korea’s Takeaway From The Iran Nuclear Talks
 By Claudia Rosett   --World News
In defense of the Iran nuclear talks, Obama administration officials have made a number of unlikely claims, including the repeated proposition that under the current Tehran regime Iran’s nuclear program could be transformed into something “exclusively peaceful.” But one of the most bizarre statements yet came just last weekend from Secretary of State John Kerry. Speaking to reporters in Beijing, Kerry said he hopes an Iran nuclear deal could have a “positive influence” on North Korea.

Obama Claims Anti-Semitic Iranians are Just Being ‘Rational’

Obama has now decided that being a wild-eyed hater of Jews is a “rational” action and that the Iranian’s hate for Jews doesn’t make them bad people. How can Jews still support Obama?

In discussing his foreign policy ideas concerning Iran getting a nuke, Obama once again had harsher things to say about Israel than he does about Iran despite that Iran has actually helped kill thousands of American soldiers.

Saudi Arabia wants to run the UN Human Rights Council. Also places want ads for more executioners

Saudi Arabia wants to run the UN Human Rights CouncilThe United Nations is one of the most worthless organizations on the face of the Earth. That’s not hyperbole. It’s just a simple fact.

Hillary finally answers some questions - badly. CBS calls her out for dodgingIf you’re the kind of person who thinks Hillary Clinton is trying desperately to avoid questions from the media, you owe her an apology. She’s nothing if not completely forthcoming. Despite the fact that she went almost a month without answering a single media inquiry, Mrs. Clinton is an open book - and she’s eager to show off her love of complete and utter transparency.

An easy solution to that whole crowded-stage-at-the-Republican-debate problem
 By Dan Calabrese   --American Politics

An easy solution to that whole crowded-stage-at-the-Republican-debate problemI suppose it’s arguable whether it matters that the field of Republican presidential candidates in the coming cycle looks to be unusually large. Personally I don’t really see why it matters, since we know perfectly well that only a handful of viable candidates will still have a serious chance once we’re past the first few caucuses and primaries. But I can’t help but be both amused and a little frustrated by the reason many conservatives are citing for why this is supposedly a problem:

The Alberta Disadvantage - Lessons for Wyoming

A Commentary by Maureen Bader, Wyoming Liberty Group

In Governor Mead’s 2015 supplemental budget, the governor called on the legislature to set up a reserve account for an industrial park, and the legislature complied with a $5 million appropriation. The idea comes from the Industrial Heartland in Alberta, Canada, an industrial park funded by the provincial and various local governments to attract oil and gas companies to the province.

Jeb Bush Criticises Obama For Exaggerating Climate Change
 By Guest Column--Dr. Benny Peiser   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

U.S. Republican Jeb Bush said on Wednesday that the Earth’s climate is changing but that scientific research does not clearly show how much of the change is due to humans and how much is from natural causes. While President Barack Obama and many scientists believe humans are largely to blame for climate change, Bush said the degree of human responsibility is uncertain. The former Florida governor challenged Obama’s determination earlier in the day that climate change is now a threat to U.S. national security.—Reuters, 21 May 2015

Military Lessons for Hamas from Operation Protective Edge
 By INSS--Dr. Gabi Siboni   --World News

Hamas emerged bruised and battered from the 50 days of fighting in Operation Protective Edge, and programs for reconstruction in the Gaza Strip have not progressed at the pace expected by the leadership. The severe economic situation and the ensuing humanitarian crisis in Gaza are liable to be a catalyst for public protest that could threaten the Hamas government. Furthermore, as of now no political horizon is in sight, and the armed struggle against Israel remains a key element in the organization’s political Islamic ideology.

Federal judge tosses D.C.‘s restriction on concealed carry
 By Dan Calabrese   --Gun Control - Second Amendment

Democrats have a very hard time when they are ordered by federal judges to respect the limits imposed on them by the Constitution. Telling you what to do and what not to do, and under what conditions, is what they live for. That is especially true when it comes to gun rights. So when the all-Democrat-all-the-time cabal that rules the District of Columbia was ordered by courts to respect residents’ concealed carry rights, the D.C. luminaries of course tried to find a way to not respect them regardless.

China: World’s Largest Energy Consumer and Greenhouse Gas Emitter
 By Institute for Energy Research   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

China outranks the United states in many areas. It is the largest consumer of energy, the largest producer and consumer of coal, and the largest importer of petroleum. It is also the largest generator of electricity and the largest emitter of carbon dioxide—the most abundant of the anthropogenic greenhouse gases. China needs energy to support its economic growth and to improve the life of its citizens, so it invests in energy-producing countries and makes deals with countries rich in energy resources.
