- The Constitution Redacted
Executive Power in the Constitution is severely limited. However, the Obama Administration has redacted to read that the Executive power is absolute.
- Moral equivalency?
What is the Moral Equivalency of Ferguson, Missouri to the crisis caused by ISIS in Iraq? There is none. But, not according to President Obama at the UN.
- iChristians and iJews
Even the most powerful leader in the Western world, one who describes himself as a Christian, decided that the Christians hunted by ISIS and starving on Mount Sinjar were not of sufficient numbers to warrant America's military assistance. Yes, Obama did mention his shock and disgust at the You Tube video showing the beheading of an American journalist under the literal sword of an ISIS terrorist who some suspect to be traveling on a British passport. The President was shocked, shocked. But then he headed off to the first tee and continued his golf game.
It has been a while since I have written anything even remotely touching upon politics. Some articles on project management, yes, but nothing about Obama, Reed, Pelosi, Holder, Biden, Jarrett or the rest of these high-profile progressive movers and shakers who are shaking this country apart. Yes, my editorial motivation waned over two years ago,…
- Welcome to Brazil
During my frequent travel between Dallas and Sacramento, I often find it convenient to use my iPad Mini for a little in-flight movie entertainment. Admittedly, the iPad screen is rather small and ill-suited for action pictures, but it’s perfect for films with compelling and thoughtful storylines. One such movie is simply called “Brazil”. It was…
- Standing Watch Atop the Bridge
Writing this piece seems a bit awkward. It has been about a year and a half since I stopped my research and commentary regarding politics. This self-imposed exile was necessary for my well being, both mentally and socially. I was growing weary of all the bad news that has washed under this bridge supporting…
- The Good, the Bad and the Obama
I stayed up late last night to watch a Clint Eastwood movie, perhaps in a token gesture of solidarity with the iconic American actor who most visibly represented the Hollywood conservative community at the Republican National Convention.
- A Message from Chris Rock
The election is tomorrow, just one day before we know how our fate as Americans is decided. One day before we know what the next four years may hold.
- Georgia on my Mind
As we approach this final weekend before the presidential election of 2012, my thoughts are flooded with all of the reasons Americans should keep Barack Obama from entering his second term.
- When Politics Become Deadly Personal
Charles Woods was interviewed by Sean Hannity yesterday regarding the death of Woods son, Ty , who was a Navy SEAL defending Americans at Benghazi, Libya on September 11th.
- Score Obama on the Third Debate
Cut through some of the noise and padding of Obama's responses in the third and final presidential debate by reading these excerpts. Grab a pad and pencil to give the president one point for each statement you believe to be credible
- The Amateur
I'd like to lift an excerpt from the book describing a private dinner that Obama held for nine prominent historians - Doris Kearns Goodwin, Michael Beschloss , Robert Caro, Robert Dallek, David Brinkley, HW Brands, David Kennedy, Kenneth Mack and Garry Wills. Apparently this event took place not long after the Obama's took up residence in the White House.
- Presidential Debate Double Trouble
These excerpts were lifted from the transcript published by ABC news this morning. Some could argue that the statements presented here are taken out of context. They're not. You can read the entire transcript for yourself by accessing the link at the bottom of this article. But for now, you might simply want to review, word for word, exactly what Obama said last night. Be as objective as you can. Then ask yourself if any of this seems credible.
- Obama Supporter Interviews Herself
Originally published October 12, 2012 on the Obama White House Diaries – Some of you who saw the Vice-Presidential debate last night were encouraged by Paul Ryan’s performance. Others, like myself, were a little disappointed that Biden was not totally shut down considering the record of the Administration he was attempting to defend. But I…
- God and Government
Originally published on the Obama White House Diaries October 10, 2012 – As many of my friends and family members already know, I took it upon myself to start writing about politics about three and half years ago. Over that course of time, quite a bit of energy has been expended researching political news, followed by…
- Some Humor for a Sunday, Courtesy SNL
To be honest, sometimes I find it difficult to laugh about politics these days. There’s so much at stake with the next election and you could make the argument that humor is simply a distraction from the seriousness of the situation facing America’s future right now. But then again, we all need to laugh sometimes.…
- I’ll Take a Big Mac, with Unlimited Minutes and Broadband on the Side
You’re probably aware that the number of people on food stamps in this country has virtually doubled since Obama took office, beginning with $39 billion spent in 2008. Today this taxpayer burden stands annually between $70 billion and $80 billion, depending upon who you ask. And projections show this trend continuing, which makes perfect sense…
- Howard Stern Listeners vs WSJ Readers
This morning, I ran across two links that, on the surface, have very little to do with each other. The first was an editorial in the Wall Street Journal entitled “The 10% President”. This article was written in response to CBS’s 60 Minutes interview on Sunday with Obama. Specifically, WSJ took issue with the following…
- Rage Against the Dying of the Light
I recently received an e-mail from a longtime friend who grew up in Marin County California. She was asking my opinion regarding an article published on May 8, 2012 by an American Thinker editorialist Steve McCann entitled “Obama’s Second Term Transformation Plans”. I’ve included a link to the article below, but here are a few…
- Massie: Why I Do Not Like the Obamas
A friend of mine who reads The Obama White House Diaries sent me the link to an article written by Mychal S. Massie entitled “Why I Do Not Like The Obamas”. It was originally published on February 22, but it seems timely to share this with you now, since many independent voters are starting to question the…
