Barack Obama’s Ephemeral Legacy as He Begins Grabbing Guns

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

With Obamacare as the chief exception, most of the President’s legacy is temporary. Even his revisions to Obamacare are subject to deletion with the stroke of a pen by the next President. His Iranian deal could go away. His environmental deal could go away. His education plans, immigration plans, national security plans, energy plans, and most of the rest of his administration can all disappear with the stroke of a pen. Congress is not needed just as the President now has bypassed Congress.

GOA: Yes, Obama IS Coming After Your Guns

Obama believes that because terrorists and some who are mentally deranged want to kill us, we should take a closer look at our gun laws. On that point, we agree:  We do need to reexamine our gun laws.  But what will make us safer is to repeal unconstitutional gun laws.   Click the link to sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republicans, tell Ryan and McConnell "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

America Is Not Becoming More Liberal

David Dayen, New Republic

The next president certainly will not be more liberal than his or her party’s predecessor.

‘It’s Because I’m Black, Isn’t It?’

Kevin D. Williamson, National Review

The really maddening thing, though, is that President Obama thinks the reason he isn’t perceived as being especially good at his job is that we yokels aren’t smart enough to understand how spectacularly spectacular he is.

9 Days to Save America: Sen. Sessions Says GOP Congress has “the overwhelming power” to Stop Obama

As Senator Jeff Sessions pointed out unless GOP leaders in Congress—the party controls both chambers, the House and the Senate—do something to pull back on Obama’s “blank checks” for potentially-ISIS-connected Syrian refugees and other potential terrorists, there’s no way to stop Obama from bringing them in. Please join us by signing our open letter to House and Senate Republican leaders demanding they use their "overwhelming power" to stop Obama’s dangerous policies and unconstitutional actions.

We Can – And Should – Ban Most Muslim Immigration To America

FLASH: Muslim terrorists take 170 people hostage at Mali luxury hotel. What all of the elite policymakers, like Speaker Paul Ryan and President Barack Obama, who advocate allowing, or even increasing Muslim immigration to the United States fail to grasp is that Islam is not a “religion” as those steeped in the Western Enlightenment understand the term. It is a totalitarian political system that seeks to manage the lives of adherents to the smallest detail and vest total power in the system's leaders.

You Can’t Keep Up with Obama’s Incompetence, Corruption, and Hyperactivity

Deroy Murdoch, National Review Online

People ask me if I ever lack ideas for opinion pieces. Au contraire: Like a Malibu firefighter encircled by blazing brush, I can’t decide where to aim my hose. I spent most of Wednesday trying to pick which of that day’s Obama-fueled infernos to douse.

VE Day Anniversary: What if the Greatest Generation Had Simply Declared Victory and Gone Home?

In the lead-up to World War II and throughout the war President Franklin Delano Roosevelt prepared Americans for a war to preserve our way of life, not to simply reclaim the territory Hitler and his dark legions had conquered. Contrast that clarity with our situation today. Americans have never been told by their President that this is a religious and cultural war and, most importantly, Americans have never heard from their President that we are in a war for the preservation of western civilization with a foe every bit has ruthless and genocidal as Hitler’s Nazis.

The Real Jeb Bush and Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

Money can take you a long way in politics, it can even more or less buy you the nomination as it did Mitt Romney in 2012, but in the 2016 Republican Primary we don’t think it can nominate a candidate, like Jeb Bush, who fundamentally has the same position that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have on amnesty for illegal aliens.

Ted Cruz knocks Obama, ‘photo op foreign policy’ in blistering speech

David Sherfinski, The Washington Times

Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, said Wednesday he hasn’t seen a “seriousness of purpose” in confronting the Islamic State terrorist group. In an approximately 30-minute speech at the Center for Security Policy’s “Defeat Jihad” summit, Mr. Cruz also methodically picked apart recent comments from the president on religion, free speech and terrorism that have come under fire.

Liberals Trying To Save Obama From ‘Crusades’ Idiocy

John Hayward, Breitbart

Dear liberals: Please stop trying to save President Obama from the idiotic remarks he made about the Crusades and moral equivalence at the National Prayer Breakfast.

Needed: Leaders to Speak the Truth about Radical Islam

By Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman ConservativeHQ.com

On the day a video of Jordanian pilot First Lieutenant Moaz al-Kasasbeh being burned to death by the radical Islamists of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria the President of the United States would still not name Islamists as the perpetrators of that unspeakable act. Now is the time to learn from the wisdom of Ronald Reagan who said “wishful thinking about our adversaries is folly.” We need leaders who will communicate about radical Islam as Reagan and conservatives did about the Soviet Union; with honesty and with clarity about the threat and about what it will take to win. 

Primary Any Republican Senator Who Votes For Loretta Lynch

Any Republican Senator, like Senator Orrin Hatch, who votes to confirm Loretta Lynch is disavowing the Constitution and the principles of the Republican Party, disrespecting the views of the Republican grassroots and inviting a principled limited government constitutional conservative to oppose them in the next Republican Primary election.

Guess Who Says Obama’s Clean Power Plan Is Unconstitutional?

Liberal constitutional law scholar, and early Obama mentor, Laurence H. Tribe warns that Obama has overstepped the bounds of his constitutional authority and says frustration with congressional inaction cannot justify throwing the Constitution overboard to rescue this lawless EPA proposal.

North Koreans Attack America: Obama Wimps Out On His Hollywood Buddies

Perhaps when the next presidential election rolls around Hollywood will ask, as real America did in this past election, “Who will keep us safe?” Then answer that question by supporting a Republican who, unlike Barack Obama, is committed to using all of the tools of our national power to defend our economic interests AND our fundamental values.

Oppose an Omnibus Spending Bill and Executive Amnesty For Illegals!

To: Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner, and All Members of the House Republican Conference

How Barack Obama and Jerry Brown Killed Two California Police Officers

Barack Obama and his open borders allies, such as Democratic Senators Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and "sanctuary state" Gov. Jerry Brown of California are the real killers of  Placer County Deputy Michael David Davis Jr. and Sacramento County Deputy Danny Oliver. This year, vote like your life depends upon it, because it does.

Obama’s Gift to America is Fear. Who Will Keep America Safe?

Never before, or certainly not since the dark days immediately following the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor that brought America into World War II, has fear been an every day, every hour, every minute phenomenon in American society. But today, thanks to Barack Obama, fear is everywhere in America. And only you, with your vote, can end the fear and make America safe once again.
