You’re not going to believe this, but it’s true.
We’ve got a national debt that’s out of control, $17 trillion and climbing. Yet, John Kerry just gave foreign workers at the State Department a 42% raise. 42%! When was the last time you got a raise like that?
The Obama Administration is simply out-of-touch with the challenges facing American taxpayers like you and me.
The tenth of May is the anniversary of the “royal assent” of the Tea Act — famously known as one of the last straws that led to the American Revolution.
A “last straw” — defined as “the last of a series (as of events or indignities) that brings one beyond the point of endurance” — represents the point at which things really do make a difference.
Family Security Matters
Two years later, the White House still won’t say where the president was during the Benghazi attack.
Former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor made news recently when he told Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier, “Dude, this was like two years ago.” Vietor’s juvenile comment regarding the Benghazi terrorist attack plunged jaws from coast to coast.
With somewhat less fanfare, Vietor also revealed that he “was in the Situation Room that night.” Asked if Obama were there, too, Vietor replied: “No.” He then challenged Baier, saying, “The fact that your network at one time reported that he watched video feed of the attack as it was ongoing is part of what I think has been a pattern of inaccurate – “
Baier interrupted: “Where was the president?”
“In the White House,” Vietor said, but “not in the room I was in.” He added: “I don’t have a tracking device on him in the residence.”
So, where was Obama and what was he doing while al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists were busy killing four American public servants?
