Family Security Matters

by ROGER ARONOFF

Now that a federal appeals court panel has upheld the freeze on President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugees and immigration, he will likely have his first case before the U.S. Supreme Court in the not too distant future. This may have been an unforced error on the part of the President. While I believe it was wrong and counter-productive for President Trump to belittle the Washington state judge and suggest that even a “bad high school student” would understand the law, the media, in their hyper-hostility toward Trump, are demonstrating their complete double standard. Where was their criticism of Obama when he attacked and pressured the courts to rule in his favor, or condemned them after rulings went against him? The press was missing in action.

President Obama wasn’t shy about criticizing the courts. He did so during his 2010 State of the Union address where he criticized the Supreme Court’s ruling on Citizens United. “With all due deference to separation of powers,” said [1] Obama, “last week the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that, I believe, will open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections.” Justice Samuel A. Alito made news by mouthing “Not true” in response to the president’s comments.

Just “two days before oral arguments” in the Obamacare case known as King v. Burwell, writes [2] Josh Blackman, a constitutional law professor at South Texas College of Law in Houston, Obama told Reuters, “In our view, [there was] not a plausible legal basis for striking [the IRS rule] down.”

The Top Ten Misreported And Underreported Stories Of 2016

Accuracy in Media

by

 

As we look back on 2016, we would like to highlight some of the American media’s worst abuses that occurred during the past year, including coverage of the very divisive election campaign. We have picked ten stories in which the media were either derelict in their duty to report the truth, or sold a false or biased narrative to the public that furthered the left’s agenda. In other cases, the media missed the story altogether or made excuses for their own biased reporting. We could easily have picked additional stories that meet those criteria, but arbitrarily chose to look at ten, in no particular order.

  1.    Presidential Election Coverage
  2.    Hillary Clinton Email / National Security Scandal
  3.    Clinton Foundation / Pay for Play
  4.    Rigged FBI Investigation
  5.    Obama’s Legacy Failures
  6.    Iran Nuclear Deal
  7.    Obamacare
  8.    The Economy
  9.    Terror Attacks in the United States (Islamic Terror)
  10.    Benghazi

Socialism Is Dying Everywhere — Except The U.S.

Socialism: Around the world, nations that have been foolish enough to adopt socialist policies either collapsed or are well on their way to doing so. Why, then, are so many in the U.S. enthralled with the idea?

A quick look at the world’s countries in direst economic shape reveals that many, if not most, have one thing in common: They rely on top-down socialist control, rather than free markets, to run their economies. The former, history amply shows, are doomed to fail. There are no long-term socialist success stories. None.

Dear Republican Establishment…

Dear Republican Establishment:
I’m going to give you the Readers Digest version of why Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are leading in the Republican Primary.

In 2008, John McCain, a sitting Senator and a war hero, was running against the first African-American presidential candidate. Perhaps, the Republican party should have considered their own non-white candidate to appease a nation who thought skin color was more important than the proven character and experience of an “old white guy”.

Although I still believe McCain could have won, if not for the collapse of the Lehman Brothers and the fallout that followed, nonetheless, the Republicans failed to win this election.

In 2012, the Republicans nominated Mitt Romney. With millions of people protesting the Obama Healthcare Tax being shoved down our throats, the Republican Establishment picks the one guy who had already implemented this law in his own state. Would Romney fight the forced healthcare act that was the hot button issue in 2012, after all, he was the Daddy of it? Instead of fighting Obama and Obamacare, Romney became an apologist. He would attack Obama on his policy, get criticized in the papers and the next day he would be a blubbering idiot apologizing for offending Obama. All he did was offend the American people.

The Republican supporters refused to elect weak-kneed Romney, giving Obama the easy win. What the voters did do, however, was give the Republican the majority in the House and Senate. The People felt that in this position, the Republicans could stop Obama and his socialist agenda. Brilliant strategy that did not happen because the Republicans had the power, but they refuse to use it.

Obama: The Lamest Duck

PJ Media
By Victor Davis Hanson

 

President Obama is boxed in a state of paralysis—more so than typical lame-duck presidents.

His hard-left politics have insidiously eroded the Democratic Party, which has lost both houses of Congress and the vast majority of the state legislatures, state elected offices, and governorships. Obama has redefined the black vote, as a necessary, no-margin-of-error 95% bloc majority to offset his similar creation of an increasingly monolithic 65% bloc white vote. We are no longer individual voters, but, in Chicago-politics style, merely faceless “Latinos,” “Asians,” “African-Americans,” “gays,” “women,” and now “whites.”

Obama issues a new initiative—and the nation snoozes. He wastes the day on the golf links—and the nation snoozes. He smear his critics, invites a rapper to the White House whose latest album cover has a dead white judge lying in front of the White House—and the nation snoozes. He cozies up to America’s enemies and snubs our friends—and the nation snoozes. For the nth time, he blusters about closing down Guantanamo—and the nation snoozes. He opens the border even wider to welcome in more illegal aliens and future constituents—and the nation snoozes. Lame duckestry means not even being able to wake up your opponents.

There is so far no Obama legacy, except the creation of Donald Trump, a $20 trillion debt and zero interest rates—and the gift of flat energy prices that came despite not because of Obama’s efforts. Almost every major bureaucracy is awash in scandal or charges of incompetence. The common theme of the disasters at the GSA, EPA, ICE, IRS, NASA, Secret Service, and VA is ideological subversion and ingrained hostility to meritocracy. Would anyone be surprised that another government official pled the 5th, created fake email personas, resigned at 5 PM on a Friday afternoon, declared a foremost mission Muslim outreach, or withheld subpoenaed documents?

Obama is looting the Treasury to pay off insurers

The Obama administration will tell any lie and break any law to prevent the president’s signature health-care program from collapsing.

Insurance companies such as UnitedHealthcare and Aetna are losing billions trying to sell ObamaCare plans, and the risk is they’ll drop out at the end of 2016. No insurance companies means no ObamaCare.

In 2014, the White House tried to avert that disaster by promising insurers a taxpayer-funded bailout, but public outrage and quick action by Sen. Marco Rubio put a stop to it. Now the administration is at it again.

Under ObamaCare, Doctors Can Be Sued for Acknowledging Only Two Genders

Moonbattery

The male–female binary is one of the most basic principles of biology. However, it runs contrary to current liberal ideology, so acknowledging its existence is a thought crime that can get medical professionals sued:

The United States’ Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently put forth a controversial proposal that may make doctors vulnerable to lawsuits if they recognise only two genders…

The proposed new rule, which falls under U.S. President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, prohibits medical practitioners from discriminating against transgender individuals.

According to the New Boston Post, the new proposal defines “sex stereotypes” in part as “expectations that gender can only be constructed within two distinct opposite and disconnected forms (masculinity and femininity), and that gender cannot be constructed outside of this gender construct (individuals who identify as neither, both, or as a combination of male and female genders).”

Those who refuse to submit to this grotesque ideology are guilty of “discrimination” and therefore eligible for legalized looting through the courts.

Liberalism isn’t just depravity. It is totalitarian depravity imposed on every aspect of existence by the full force of the ever-present all-powerful State.
