“It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris …” [emphasis added] – President Obama on the brutal murders by Islamic extremists in a kosher supermarket in Paris.

February 10th, 2015 • The White House doubled down on President Obama’s statement that the terrorist attack on Kosher deli in Paris was a random event. Fox News host Megyn Kelly examines the White House defense with Mark Thiessen and Mark Hannah.
This sign was prominently displayed in front of a Business in Florida and you are probably outraged at the thought of such an inflammatory sign. However, we are a society which holds freedom of speech as perhaps one of our greatest liberties. And after all, it is only a sign, right? You may ask: “What kind of business would dare post such a sign?”
Answer: A Funeral Home!
You gotta love it!!!
Unbelievable: Obama refers to terror attack on Jews in a Paris kosher supermarket a ‘random’ shooting.
After President Barack Obama sat down with Vox editor-in-chief Ezra Klein to discuss domestic policy, including the “Balkanization” of the media, he moved onto to foreign policy with executive editor Matt Yglesias. This time, during a question about how the media covers terrorism, the president made a bold admission about how the war in Iraq affected our national security here at home.
Yglesias asked Obama if he thinks the media “sometimes overstates the level of alarm people should have about terrorism” as opposed to longer-term problems like climate change and epidemic disease.
“Absolutely,” the president responded, saying he doesn’t blame the press for embracing the old adage, “If it bleeds, it leads.” Obama acknowledged that it’s lot harder to make climate change or cutting infant mortality a “sexy story.”
But, at the same time, Obama said, “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris. We devote enormous resources to that, and it is right and appropriate for us to be vigilant and aggressive in trying to deal with that — the same way a big city mayor’s got to cut the crime rate down if he wants that city to thrive.” Continue reading at mediaite.com.

The House Select Committee on Benghazi announced that both Democrats and Republicans want to schedule the appearance of Hillary Clinton “as soon as possible.”
But first, says Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the State Department must provide documents originally subpoenaed in 2013 so the materials can be reviewed in order to “constructively ask questions of Secretary Clinton.”
Among the materials sought: documents related to the State Department’s Accountability Review Board investigation and other relevant emails and documents in the possession of the State Department.
For the first time, the committee has also disclosed a partial list of executive branch, military, intelligence and State Department witnesses it intends to interview beginning as early as April 1. It includes Clinton’s top aides Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan.

Barack Obama lashed out at Christians today at the Annual Prayer Breakfast.
The President used his warped version of the Crusades to bash Christians.
He also blamed slavery and Jim Crow laws on Christians?
“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place. Remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. And our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

The most transparent administration in history at work:
President Barack Obama reportedly talked to Muslim Americans about stopping the Islamic State and stopping anti-Muslim discrimination during a meeting at the White House Wednesday. He even apparently talked to them about Obamacare.
Citing privacy issues, the White House refused to identify the Muslim leaders who met with Obama in private. The meeting was closed to the press and did not include a list of participants.
“The President discussed the need to continue countering ISIL and other groups that commit horrific acts of violence, purportedly in the name of Islam,” according to the White House. Continue reading at theblaze.com.
“Obama Will Cut Their Grants If Congress Does Not Fund Amnesty”
This is but another example of how the Obama administration is a regime of the government, by the government and for the government.
From westernjournalism.com: According to a Facebook post by one Colorado sheriff, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson (pictured above) is taking a personal interest in making sure authorities across the nation fall in line with the Obama administration’s immigration policy. Scroll down to see the full post.
Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith reported receiving a “very interesting veiled threat” from Johnson, which he said was addressed to “all police chiefs and sheriffs around the country.”
Within the correspondence, Smith explained, was a promise that “local and state public safety agencies would not receive federal grants they were counting on” if legislators do not endorse the DHS funding bill Obama supports. Read more at westernjournalism.com.
As millions of Americans brace for tax season, the Internal Revenue Service is requesting a $2 billion boost to its budget and 9,000 new employees as it prepares to enforce Obamacare’s tax provisions.
President Obama released his $4 trillion budget proposal for fiscal year 2016 this week, which includes $13.9 billion for the Internal Revenue Service. The agency asked Congress for close to $2 billion more for operations than last year—a 16 percent increase. Read more at dailysignal.com.
Texas governor declares today, February 2nd, Chris Kyle Day. Hey Michael Moore: Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it!
From Breitbart: by Bob Price
Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared February 2nd to be “Chris Kyle Day” to honor the Texan who became known the most lethal sniper in American history. Kyle was also recently immortalized in the blockbuster film “American Sniper.”
Kyle was credited with 150 sniper kills during his four tours of duty in Iraq as a Navy Seal. He was tragically shot and killed on February 2, 2013, while trying to help a fellow veteran who was allegedly suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Read more at breitbart.com.
There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.
Thursday of this week you voted in the Senate to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline?
Congratulations. Other than to pander to a microscopic percentage of Americans who simply don’t like progress and energy production, there remains not one reasonable excuse not to build this pipeline — even if it produces only a handful of jobs. Barack Obama said he’ll veto the approval. So what?
Earlier this week, Speaker John Boehner invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of Congress to address the threat Iran poses against his country and the rest of the (not just free) world? The threats from Ojarrett were palpable (“There will be a price”), and Obama has petulantly refused to meet with Bibi while the Jewish leader is here. Obama has also sent a delegation of political operatives to Israel to compromise Netanyahu’s election in the next couple weeks. Not good, but so what?
Congressman Trey Gowdy (SC) is taking a hammer to the wall of lies surrounding events that occurred on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya? Everyone on the Left seems to have put up roadblocks to keep the American people from learning the truth, and don’t show signs of stopping. So what? Read more HERE.

I have both a confession and a strong suggestion to make.
First, the confession: I’m not interested in being an ordinary Republican anymore.
Don’t get me wrong. All my political heroes are still in the GOP—Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Trey Gowdy, Jim Jordan, you know the drill. But, like many people, I am disappointed in the so-called “establishment” GOP. However, I’m not willing to jump to the baby-killer, anti-family, huge government party (Democrats). And I’m not bonkers enough to buy the “not a dime’s worth of difference between them” tinfoil hat line.
But after much soul-searching and research, I have discovered what I really am. And it’s time to shout it from the rooftops, unashamed to be true to myself. With apologies to Jim McGreevey, I hereby declare “my truth”:
I am a proud 1866 Radical Republican American. Read more HERE.

Erick Erickson a Conservative pundit and editor of the blog RedState, guest hosted the Rush Limbaugh show on Tuesday. He covered many topics and in a segment during the third hour, he spoke about the landmark Supreme Court decision, known as Citizens United. This ruling opened up anonymous funding of political campaigns. This ruling has outraged the Progressives who are fighting tooth and nail for its repeal.
In this audio clip, Erickson explains, in a manner that even some Democrats might understand, how Citizens United really helps “the little guy.”
