In searching for one word to describe the state of affairs in America at the present time, I kept coming back to the word “stupefying.” For my purposes here, this is an incredibly useful word for illustrating what Barack Obama, and the left-wing in general, have done to our country.
On Wednesday, March 4, the Supreme Court will hear the King v. Burwell case. It is likely to deliver a death blow to ObamaCare when the decision is announced in a few months. About the only good thing ObamaCare demonstrated is that the federal government should be kept from taking over sectors of the nation’s economy that are working just fine without it.
Deputy State Department spokeswoman, Marie Harf, became a household name a couple of weeks ago when she took to the airwaves to state the real reason young people become jihadists and flock to join the Islamic State. They do so because they don’t have jobs. If only they could be gainfully employed, they wouldn’t have any wish to join ISIS where they can spend their days beheading, crucifying, burning and otherwise killing people, including babies and children simply because they are Christians, Yazidis, or Muslims who do not agree with their interpretation of Islam.

Prior to the speech of the Israeli Prime Minister to Congress, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria sang the praises of a story from the pro-Edward Snowden publication, The Intercept, suggesting that Benjamin Netanyahu just can’t be trusted. The story claimed Netanyahu has been “crying wolf” about the Iranian nuclear weapons program by changing his estimate of how close the Iranians are to getting the bomb.
“The president has far exceeded his constitutional authority. … We all want to do things to stop the president from his illicit activity.” - House Speaker John Boehner
“It is time to allow this Homeland Security funding measure to come to the floor. This is our colleagues’ chance to do exactly what they led their constituents to believe they’d do: defend the rule of law, without more excuses.” - Mitch McConnell
While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is addressing a joint session of Congress, 11 a.m. this morning, President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry and 34 Democrats will be ‘I am Charlie Hebdo’-like MIA.
In 1933, approximately 9.5 million Jews lived in Europe, representing 1.7% of the total European population which, in turn, was about 60% of the Jewish world population, estimated to have been 15.2 million.
Vast armies of people whose jobs are protected from market forces are a principal strength of Leftism. States run by Leftists have teachers unions and other public employee unions draining the public treasury for pension plans and compensation packages which are “negotiated” by politicians who owe their office to public employee union support.
The actual blueprint of the method of the madness of the Obama regime has been laid bare in White House plans to develop “A Country Within A country” of 15 Million “New Americans”, a story brought to light by Mark Levin’s interview with Susan Payne.
