Gun Banning Group Proposes Gov’t Use its Gun Buying ‘Power’ To End Run the Constitution

Gun Banning Group Proposes Gov’t Use its Gun Buying ‘Power’ To End Run the Constitution

-By Warner Todd Huston

On Friday a group of left-wing “ministers” in some little-known “social justice” organization was given the platform of The New York Times to flog their ideas on how to ban guns. Their idea was to use the “buying power” the US government ostensibly has to force gun manufacturers to toe the gun banning line or face a reduction in federal guns and ammo purchases. Essentially, these purported ministers want to use the federal government’s buying status as a way to make an end run around the courts and the Constitution.

For the Metro Industrial Areas Foundation–a group that claims its goal is to “build power for social change”–authors the Rev. David K. Brawley, the Rev. Otis Moss III, the Rev. David Benke and Rabbi Joel Mosbacher had a novel if insidious idea on how to beat the courts, the Constitution, and force their ideas about guns on the country in a totally unaccountable manner.

They want their activist ideas implemented through the back door by having the US government force changes in the gun industry using its billions per year in guns and ammo purchases as a big stick to beat the industry into submission.

This would be no less than the federal government interfering in commerce on a massive scale.

Donald Trump is Jeb Bush’s Fault (Along with the REST Of the GOP Establishment)

Donald Trump is Jeb Bush’s Fault (Along with the REST Of the GOP Establishment)

-By Warner Todd Huston

Let’s face it, Donald Trump has tapped into a very serious concern that most Americans have and that is illegal immigration. But the fact that he’s become a rising star in this GOP primary race at this time isn’t because he’s so great. It’s because the GOP is so damn bad on the issue. For Trump’s current success, the whole thing is Jeb Bush, John Boehner, and Mitch McConnell’s fault.

First off, let’s be frank. Donald Trump is not a conservative. He is a recent supporter of single payer healthcare, has claimed in the past that he supports blanket amnesty, and has been all over the map on such important topics as guns and abortion. So, please let’s stop pretending he is a conservative. He absolutely has no such track record.

But his denunciation of Obama’s failed–in fact dangerous–immigration policy is exactly what angers and frightens GOP voters along with a fair portion of Democrats.

Likely without doing the requisite research for statistics to prove the matter, Trump innately understands that what we have going on in immigration is a dangerous and wrong headed policy, one that seems to have a twin purpose: to destroy this country and to set up a permanent Democrat majority through creating automatic Democrat voters after a presidential amnesty.

Trump has been absolutely fearless in speaking out against this dangerous policy that is turning America into a third world nation. He has taken the fight straight to Obama on numerous occasions and that is exactly what Republican voters want to see.

5 GOP Governors May Refuse to Obey Obama’s Global Warming Rules

-By Warner Todd Huston

Five Republican Governors are cooperating in a 10th Amendment-styled, states rights bid to defeat Obama’s un-Constitutional global warming power grab. The five are saying that they may simply ignore his edicts and refuse to implement his rules. Is your governor joining them? If not, why not?

Two of the GOP governors rattling their sabers are presidential hopefuls, so this issue just might become a national issue during the upcoming primary season.

The five governors who are warning Obama that they will simply ignore his power grab are Mary Fallin of OK, Greg Abbott of TX, Mike Pence of IN, and presidential candidates Bobby Jindal of LA, and Scott Walker of WS are also part of the group.

‘King v Burwell’ Marks the Official End of the American Republic

‘King v Burwell’ Marks the Official End of the American Republic

-By Warner Todd Huston

As he exited the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin was supposed to have told a bystander that the founders had given us a Republic, “if we could keep it.” Well this week’s latest Obamacare decision by the U.S. Supreme Court proves that we ultimately couldn’t keep it, Mr. Franklin. America is now a dead letter.

Of course, what Franklin’s possibly apocryphal reply meant was that we only had a United States system if informed citizens kept the government’s feet to the republican fires. We could only keep the system the founders gave us if we made sure the government stayed true to the system as handed down to us.

That system was one of a constitutional republic built on a rule of law, built on generations of tradition as evinced in the Common Law, and laid out with a system that had set parameters that were expected to remain virtually unchanged (though not unchangeable).

That system has been slowly eroded by parties and presidents who have had no fealty to our American way of life. Destroyers such as the Democrat Party, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, and the mewling fellow travelers of the GOP who have quietly supported the destruction, all have taken their toll on our republic. But it wasn’t until the advent of our most anti-American president yet in Barack Hussein Obama that the nation finally died a death not from revolution, but from neglect.

Thoday’s action by the opportunist Chief Justice John Roberts has thrown the last spade full of dirt over the grave of the American Republic.

Illinois Media Ignoring Rep. Tammy Duckworth’s Corruption and Whistleblower Case

-By Warner Todd Huston

In Illinois we have a complicit, left-wing media establishment that will never write a bad story about Democrats. This deal with 8th District Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth–a candidate for the US Senate, no less–is a perfect example. Duckworth is being accused of punishing two whistleblowers who were trying to uncover Duckworth’s massive mismanagement when she was at the VA and yet the media is practically silent on the story.

Durckworth is now being sued by two whistleblowers who came forward to reveal her complete mismanagement of the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs. They are suing because when they tried to bring this info forward, Duckworth retaliated against them and punished them for shining a light on the mismanagement.

Duckworth is currently selling herself as an ideal candidate for the US Senate and will run against the weak spinned Republican Mark Kirk in 2016. One of her claims to fame is her tenure at the Illinois VA where she served as Director Of The Illinois Dept. Of Veterans Affairs between December 15, 2006 and February 6, 2009.

“I Have Been A Very Effective Administrator… I’m Proud Of The Work That I Did At The State Of Illinois Department Of Veteran’s Affairs,” she said on WFLD in April.

It is Now Indisputable That Pope Francis is a Risible Communist

It is Now Indisputable That Pope Francis is a Risible Communist

-By Warner Todd Huston

From now on, Pope Francis should be utterly dismissed as an important leader of the world. His latest global warming “encyclical” has proven he subscribes to a risible, anti-western and anti-capitalist theology and is less a Catholic than a communist.

I have been saying that this disastrous pope is a commie since his first few public addresses, but Catholic apologists who can’t get past their fealty to their “god on earth” have always found little outs, ways to dismiss the criticism of their pope by claiming that Francis is really just badly stating longstanding Catholic doctrine.

But with Francis’ new encyclical On Care For Our Common Home, the pope’s latest paean to the religion of global warming leaves no doubt that he stands against western values in most cases.

In this message–which lays out this terrible pope’s absurd ideas on his new religion of global warming–says that we need to stop buying things and turn the world back several thousand years to a time when life was brutal, uncomfortable, and short. He is essentially calling for an end to capitalism in this rambling paper.

Pope Francis goes on to claim that wealthy countries need to stop being wealthy and give away everything to the supposedly poorer nations but he doesn’t spend a second coming to term with why they are poor. He just assumes that rich nations are greedy and evil and must stop being so wealthy. This is quite a communistic theme.

Francis rails about all sorts of things in this jumble of nonsense. In paragraph 55 Francis even rails about the evils of air conditioning, of all things.

OUTRAGE: Teachers Union Caught Using Tax Dollars to Fund Tax Hike Campaign

-By Warner Todd Huston

This is one of my preeminent examples of why there should never, ever be such a thing as a union for a government employee–ANY government employee. A teachers union in Colorado has been caught red handed using tax money to fund a campaign to urge lawmakers to raise taxes.

This is the single best reason to be rid of government employee unions. The fact is, they are entirely un-democratic and blatantly un-American.

The story comes to us form ColoradoPeakPolitics, but it is a tale that could just as easily come from New York, Illinois, or any other state bedeviled with grasping, anti-American public employee unions.

Here is now the website explains what the teachers union is doing in the Jeffco public school system in Jefferson County, CO.

For Some Reason the Media Goes Ga Ga Over Woman Who Wants to Start an Auto Repair Shop

-By Warner Todd Huston

I must admit that I have some mixed emotions about this story of a woman who saw that other women didn’t have their own auto repair shops, so she decided to start one. There are several ways to think about the tale, granted, but none of them seem to rise to the need for a big splashy national news story on her business proposal.

So, the big deal story is offered to us by ABC News. It is the tale of entrepreneur Patrice Banks who claims that she was “dumbfounded” that there weren’t any auto repair shops run by women in her hometown of Philadelphia. So, she has triumphantly announced that she plans to open one of her own.

The news piece makes a big deal out of the fact that a woman wants to open a car repair shop. Once again it’s that whole women-empowering-women theme we are treated to.

But, after reading about her tale I feel nothing but a big dose of “so what?” coming on.

Firstly, we have to realize that this story is premature. After all, Patrice Banks is only saying she is going to open her chick friendly auto repair shop to empower all those women out there hungry for a woman-owned auto repair shop.

Secondly… well, again, SO WHAT?

Obama Cancels July 4th Celebration in Embassy so as Not to Upset Muslims

Obama Cancels July 4th Celebration in Embassy so as Not to Upset Muslims

-By Warner Todd Huston

So now our first Muslim president is canceling our own national celebrations in order not to upset Muslims, so we’ve got that going for us… which is nice. This week we’ve discovered that Obama’s crew staffing the U.S. embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia cancelled its celebration of Independence Day on July 4th so it won’t make Indonesians mad at us.

The celebration of July 4th was moved to June 4th so it wouldn’t upset Muslims celebrating Ramadan this year.

Obama’s ambassador to the majority Islamic nation, Robert O. Blake (Obama appointed in 2013) also said that the month-early Jakarta celebration of our Independence Day was in part meant to celebrate “green technology.” Because, I guess we separated from England so that we could make solar cells… or something.

So, not only does an Obama appointed ambassador move around out own national holidays in an effort to appease Islamists, but he then uses the re-scheduled event to push greenism.

Yep, that sounds like an Obamaite–America hating and all.

Hastert Story is Proof Both the Media and Washington Are Broken

-By Warner Todd Huston

Dennis Hastert once let me eat his dinner on the rubber chicken circuit and that dinner story rates national coverage as much as his scandal story does. The fact is Hastert’s blackmail story doesn’t rate the massive coverage it’s getting in Illinois nor in the rest of the nation. But the coverage it is getting, though, is proof that both the media and Washington are broken.

When news broke last week that former Speaker of the House of Representatives Dennis Hastert was being indicted for making false statements to the FBI and for skirting financial reporting rules, the world stopped in the media and in Washington both.

Take, for instance, a headline today in The Hill that screams, “Hastert Questions Consume Capitol.” This is nearly a week after the news broke.

The Hill piece reveals a fascination with the story that beggars the imagination.

Bill Nye the Liar Guy Claims ‘Science Funding’ Is In The US Constitution

-By Warner Todd Huston

Why, didn’t you know, America, that the Founders were so far reaching that they put global warming funding right in the U.S. Constitution? Well, that is what Bill Nye the not-so-sciencey guy is claiming, anyway.

The guy who plays a scientist on TV, but actually has no science degrees at all, told Vox.com that the U.S. Constitution makes provisions to fund science, so being anti-global warming means you hate the founders… or something.

Here is what Bill Nye the actor guy told Vox:

When you have people denying this basic process, and how we all got here, it’s offensive to me intellectually. And I happen to think it’s unpatriotic. Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution says the government shall “promote the progress of science and useful arts.” So if you’re a politician looking to derail the progress of science, I think you’re not doing your job.

I want voters and taxpayers to recognize this. Do you really want to vote for somebody who doesn’t believe in the scientific method — and doesn’t believe that we defeated smallpox? Do you really want that person running your government?

Of course, this is all built on a lie. The U.S. Constitution says no such thing.

After Loud Support, Now Los Angeles Unions Want Exemption from $15 Minimum Wage Law

-By Warner Todd Huston

Once again wallowing in the hypocrisy that is liberalism, the same unions that went to the mat to support the new $15 per hour minimum wage law in Los Angeles are now demanding that the city exempt unionized companies from being forced to pay a minimum wage of $15 per hour.

The city’s union leaders were some of the loudest supporters of the new minimum wage, but now those same leaders are demanding that the L.A. City Council change the rules and exempt their own special interests from being stuck with the new wage.

Once again we see liberals insisting that everyone but them should be affected by a law they pushed.

Their excuse for the about face is that unionized businesses have already negotiated their deals and that they shouldn’t have to change them to observe the new wage law.

School Choice Finally on the Agenda in Illinois

-By Warner Todd Huston

The move for school choice is not only growing in Illinois in general but in Chicago in particular as politicians and parents both see the downward spiral of the public education system picking up speed.

With the costs of public education soaring but neither the rates of graduation nor proficiency growing accordingly, parents are desperate to find a way for their children to gain a better education.

The state is pumping millions upon millions into the bottomless pit of education and taxes are edging higher every year to support the spending habit. As an example, Illinois school district U46 (west of Chicago in the Elgin area) has $600 million in bond debt and this is just one of the nearly 700 school districts in Illinois.

So, as the system founders, many experiments have blossomed. We all know that charter schools have grown rapidly in the Chicago area, but there are other schools such as Leo Catholic High School in Chicago’s Auburn Gresham neighborhood that are serving as perfect examples of school choice. Leo is a prime example of a private high school that is a wildly successful example of education at its finest.

The school is not fully supported financially by the city’s Catholic system but has since 1926 served students as an independent high school operating in what is now one of the city’s most depressed neighborhoods. The school started back when Auburn Gresham was a heavily Irish-Catholic part of the city but now serves an entirely African American student body. (Edit to note: The Archdiocese of Chicago does support Leo and has provided over $2M in direct, financial operating support for the school between 2009 and 2015, but doesn’t pay all the school’s expenses as it does the schools it has direct control over.)

The school has been such a success that for the last six years 100% of its students have been accepted into a college or university and 96 percent have gone on to pursue higher education.

Why Does Liberal Rag Salon.com Hate Our Soldiers? Because They Take Money From Welfare Spending

-By Warner Todd Huston

On this Memorial Day, the anti-American cretins at Salon.com have proclaimed our soldiers to be “dangerous” to the nation. Why? Because spending money on our military takes money away from welfare budgets. And they are serious.

Before we even get to the stupidity in this Salon.com article, we should note that spending on the military is one of the few federal expenditures that is actually written right into the U.S. Constitution.

Welfare spending isn’t in the Constitution. Spending on the environment isn’t there. No money is specified for roads, internal improvements, or education. Neither is spending on “disaster aid.” But spending on the military is in there.

In fact, little of the spending that goes on in Washington is actually directly Constitutional. By contrast spending on the military is one of the few things that the founders made sure to provide.

But let’s give these anti-American socialists at Salon their say. Here is their argument for why “The U.S. military is a national security threat.”

In an idiotic act of PCism run amuck, The Houston Rockets NBA team has fired its social media director because he dared to posted two emoticons (or emojis) of a horse being shot by a gun after the Mavericks lost to the Rockets on Wednesday. The media guy’s bosses said that the gun emoji “wasn’t appropriate” and so fired him over it.

This is the idiocy we’ve arrived at, folks. It seems that all it takes for your career to be over these days is one non-PC action and bingo, bango, it’s the end. And why is a picture of a carttongun a fireable offense, anyway?

With Ben Affleck Flap, PBS Again Proves it is a Left Wing Shill

-By Warner Todd Huston

PBS is not fair or balanced and nothing it does can be trusted. We see this claim fully validated with how the network bent over for actor Ben Affleck’s demand that his slave-owning ancestry be eliminated from a recent program tracing the actor’s family.

PBS had Affleck on its show “Finding Your Roots” to trace his family history and learn of his lineage. But during the process, PBS discovered that the actor had slave owners in his family tree. Affleck was not having any of that, though, and demanded that the show edit out any of that reality. Affleck didn’t want his slave history known by the public.

Instead of retaining its integrity, PBS kowtowed to Affleck’s demands and agreed to excise all mentions from the show of the truth of his family tree.

We know all this because of an email hacker, not because PBS reported the truth to the country that pays its bills with tax dollars.

Conservative PAC Formed in IL-18 Special: ‘We Have Had Enough of The Political Ruling Class’

NORMAL, IL: Conservatives in Illinois’ 18th congressional district are fighting back the political establishment, and its candidate, Obama Secretary Ray LaHood’s son Darin, by promising to produce a conservative alternative for the GOP primary.

Schock, who resigned on Tuesday, will likely be replaced in congress by the Republican who wins the special election primary, tentatively set for June 8 2015.

“We’re forming an organization of donors, business leaders, and citizens that are concerned that our government is out of control,” said McLean County elected board member Mark Johnson. “Today we filed paperwork with the FEC and begin our fight.”

Johnson will lead The Grassroots Speak PAC, joined by Ken Wilber of Wilber and Associates PC, Chris Gramm of Stivers and Gramm LLC, and Ian Bayne, a talk show host on Bloomington’s Cities 92.9 FM talk station.

“We need a candidate who wants to take on Washington, not be Washington,” said Gramm, who has been active in Republican politics in Bloomington and will work closely with Wilber, who will serve as the informal finance director.

“We need fighters who represent us against the excess of government,” added Bayne. “Our freedom is shrinking, our wages are shrinking, our businesses are shrinking, and our government keeps getting bigger. We have had enough of the political ruling class.” Bayne, who has been hosting the morning program on Limbaugh affiliate Cities 92.9, is also a small business owner in real estate valuations.

Does Speaker John Boehner Have the Political Will to Pursue IRS Thug Lois Lerner?

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Department of Justice has refused to charge former IRS chief Lois Lerner on criminal contempt charges after she refused to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee last year. But this doesn’t have to be the end of any possibility of bringing Lerner to justice. IF he has the political will, Speaker John Boehner has options.

With this week’s refusal of the DOJ to charge Lerner, many are mistakenly saying that the whole thing is over. Lerner, they say, will never face justice despite refusing to testify over questions about the IRS targeting of conservative groups that came to light in 2013.

You’ll recall that as soon as Obama came to office the IRS began to use its power to intimidate conservative groups by harassing them with IRS rules and regulations and forcing them to endure an avalanche of requests for information that taxed their abilities to comply as well as forcing them to suffer through numerous audits and scrutiny. Meanwhile liberals groups were given free reign with no IRS attention. This was all obviously an ideologically-based attack on conservative groups meant to stifle them.

Last year, the chairman of the panel, Rep. Darrell Issa (R, CA), insisted that Lerner waived her 5th Amendment right to refuse to testify by making an opening statement to the committee before she claimed her right to remain silent.

Candidates for Woman on the $20 Bill Features Man hater, Mass Murderer and Advocate for Genocide of Blacks

-By Warner Todd Huston

There is a new campaign afoot that is tickling the interests of the mainstream media. It is an effort to kick President Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replace him with a woman. Sadly at least three of the candidates do not belong on the list. One is a famous hater of men, another can only be termed a mass murderer, and the third was an important supporter of the genocide of African Americans. How is it these three women deserve to be celebrated on the $20 bill is anyone’s guess.

The campaign called Women On The 20, is, the group says on its website, is an effort to “compel historic change by convincing President Obama that NOW is the time to put a woman’s face on our paper currency.”

The group hopes to have the change on the money made by the year 2020, which happens to be the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the one that gave women the right to vote.

News broke on Tuesday that the EPA wants to monitor showering in hotels with the eventual eye toward regulating it. It’s just the latest part of the nanny state being built by Emperor Obama who thinks he should be there–EVERYWHERE–to tell you how to live your life.

BREAKING: Republican Congressman Aaron Schock Just Resigned Over Illegal Spending

-By Warner Todd Huston

Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock just announced that he is resigning because of the mounting troubles over his illicit spending.

Schock was once thought of as an up-and-coming hero for establishment Republicans. But over the last month or so one story after another about his likely illegal spending of tax dollars and campaign cash on personal travel and vacations has finally sunk him. Now Politico reports he has resigned.

The 33-year-old Republican has been dogged by questions about his spending of taxpayer and campaign dollars. On Monday afternoon, POLITICO posed a lengthy set of questions about charging the government and his campaign tens of thousands of dollars in questionable mileage reimbursements.

Today, I am announcing my resignation as a Member of the United States House of Representatives effective March 31,” Schock said in a statement. “I do this with a heavy heart. Serving the people of the 18th District is the highest and greatest honor I have had in my life. I thank them for their faith in electing me and letting me represent their interests in Washington. I have given them my all over the last six years. I have traveled to all corners of the District to meet with the people I’ve been fortunate to be able to call my friends and neighbors.”

“But the constant questions over the last six weeks have proven a great distraction that has made it too difficult for me to serve the people of the 18th District with the high standards that they deserve and which I have set for myself. I have always sought to do what’s best for my constituents and I thank them for the opportunity to serve,” he said in a statement.

Of course, no Democrat would EVER have resigned over theft of taxpayer’s money, but…. there you have it.

Media Bias: CNN Lies Saying GOP Wants to ‘End Health Care for Millions

Media Bias: CNN Lies Saying GOP Wants to ‘End Health Care for Millions

-By Warner Todd Huston

Everyday the media lies to America about what conservatives and the Republican Party want to do with their policy ideas and CNN just uncorked a doosie of a lie about Obamacare.


Above is a screen shot of what appeared on CNN on March 5, 2015.

At noon on Thursday CNN was caught lying claiming that the GOP-led efforts to defeat Obamacare will “end health care for millions.” This is nothing but a blatant, scurrilous lie.

First of all, even Obamacare isn’t even offering anyone any health care. It is offering insurance polices for health care, not health care itself.

Liberals Should Celebrate ISIS as Most Perfect Non-Profit Ever Begun

Liberals Should Celebrate ISIS as Most Perfect Non-Profit Ever Begun

-By Warner Todd Huston

The left should be celebrating the ISIS terrorists as the perfect example of the sort of non-profit enterprise the virtues of which they constantly extol. In fact, led by the Obviator In Chief in Washington, since leftists are refusing to call ISIS what they are, maybe they are celebrating them after all?

Remember back in 2008 when Michelle Obama said that young people should not be so greedy as to get jobs in corporate America? Instead she instead America’s youngsters should find work at a non-profit. At a speech in Zanesville, Ohio, Michelle urged young people to make the choice “to move out of the money-making industry into the helping industry,” and darn it if ISIS didn’t take up on her challenge.

President Obama even once called his job working for a company as “working for the enemy” because of all that icky money and profits.

City Being Forced to ‘Negotiate’ With Union Despite That No Employees Belong

City Being Forced to ‘Negotiate’ With Union Despite That No Employees Belong

-By Warner Todd Huston

Here we have yet another example of why unions should never, ever be allowed for government workers. A union that claims to represent police officers in Moriarty, New Mexico, is attempting to force the city to negotiate raises for officers quite despite the fact that the union doesn’t count a single member of the force as a member.

You read that right. A union with no members is claiming that it has the power to force a city to give police officers raises courtesy of the taxpayer.

Back in 2010 the city’s officers did vote to invite a union to represent them but when all was said and done only two officers joined the union. The majority refused. And since 2010 the two officers that did belong to the union have since left the force leaving the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) without even a single member on the force.

Yet, AFSCME is insisting that they have the right to negotiate raises despite not having a single member for which to negotiate.

Illinois’ Slow Start to Fracking Still Faced Stiff Resistance

Illinois’ Slow Start to Fracking Still Faced Stiff Resistance

-By Warner Todd Huston | Watchdog Arena

Hes is my second piece at the Watchdog…

Even as fracking finally came to Illinois, it came at the worst time in the market for oil. This advancement, however, was not made easily. Resistance to the measure was heavy, replete with tough regulations.

In 2013, after then-Governor Pat Quinn signed the bill authorizing fracking, many hoped that the new rules would bring much-needed jobs to a state with one of the worst economies and job climates in the country.

But in recent months the price of oil collapsed, making fracking operations inside the U.S. much less profitable. For Illinois, it has been nearly too late to cash in. Could Illinois have avoided being too late to profit off of fracking?

Things could have gotten off to a better start. The Democrat-led state legislature dragged its feet on regulations and implementation for over a year and a half. By the time regulations were finished, the boom was on the wane….

DePaul University Hosts Fundraiser for Palestinian Terrorist

-By Warner Todd Huston

On February 3, Chicago’s DePaul University celebrated a terrorist and held a fundraiser for her. Celebrating terrorists and pushing enemies to our country. This is how far our universities have fallen.

Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a so-called “Palestinian” who is set to be deported from the U.S. for lying about her criminal record to U.S. immigration authorities, was honored at DePaul and given a fundraiser to help her fight the government, and to allow this murderer to stay in the country.

Obama Says Illegal Immigrants ‘Just Like Us’ and ‘Belong Here’

Obama Says Illegal Immigrants ‘Just Like Us’ and ‘Belong Here’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Obama met with a group of illegal immigrants in the White House today and said that they “belong here” and that they are “just like” the rest of America’s citizens.

Even as this President refuses to meet with the leader of our ally, Israel, he takes meetings with lawbreakers right in the White House. Then he supports their law breaking and says they deserve to be here.

Here is what CBS News’ Mark Knoller Tweeted about the President’s remarks.

Has there ever been a more lawless, un-American man in the White House?

Obama’s Student Loan Program Just Went $22 BILLION Over Budget

-By Warner Todd Huston

Well, who could possibly have predicted that when Obama wildly inflated the number of student loans he was going to give out would result in the program going wildly over budget, and by more than the whole budget of NASA and the Environmental Protection Agency combined?

Politico recently looked into Obama’s absurd student loan debt bomb and noted that buried in the President’s budget proposal is the proof that his student loan takeover is already $21.8 billion in debt.
