It should come as no surprise that race relations are worse now than they have been for the last thirty or forty years. The President, Eric Holder and the usual race baiters have done a great job at seeing to that. They certainly benefit by their actions but the communities they profess to want to help are left paying the price. Please read this good article by Kevin Jackson in The American Thinker-
“I’m amazed at how openly racist black Liberals have become, and how few non-blacks are willing to call them out on it.”

Note from Erick: Please welcome to our front page the always awesome David Horowitz.
Let me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet.
Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is possible.

With the overwhelmingly bipartisan vote for the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014, Congress passed the most significant reforms to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in decades. And, right on cue, here come the grumblings from the second-guessers.
As the bill was on its way to the president’s desk for signing, the critics stepped up to denounce the $16.3 billion congressional compromise.
For example, guests on a Fox News panel savaged the bill, claiming (implausibly) that it was “designed more for unions than veterans.” Meanwhile, an August 4 Wall Street Journal editorial suggests the additional funding for patient choice means that the “VA is being rewarded for failure.”
The argument is that the new legislation will do nothing more than prop up a failing bureaucracy. This represents a serious misreading of the bill’s key provisions. Read more at: weeklystandard.com.

“I’ve been around awhile and I’ve seen a lot of presidents come and go, I don’t think we’ve ever had a more pathetic commander in chief in our life. Does he not know what his policies are? What are his policies? What IS his foreign policy? Can his people even tell us what his foreign policy is, can he? Can his Secretary of Defense, or Secretary of State? Our enemies are on the move, they’re on the move because of HIM. Not because of the prior president, not because of other presidents, not because of James Buchannan or John Tyler or anybody else – because of HIM. He’s hollowing out our military. At the same time he’s telling the world what we’re NOT goin’ to do, he’s playing golf, he’s on Martha’s Vineyard, he’s busy attacking Republicans. The guy is, he’s not focused, he’s disconnected from reality. We have a real problem in this country.” – Mark Levin
It was an applause line during almost every campaign address made by President Obama in 2012: “I promised to end the war in Iraq, and I did.”
Now, he’s backing off.
President Obama ordered a full troop withdrawal from Iraq, which was completed in December 2011. But the country did not stabilize, as was predicted by Obama and key members of his administration. Instead, it has descended into greater chaos with the violent al Qaeda offshoot ISIL threatening to take over the country. Read more.

It is such common sense as to be undeniable that basic journalism requires a party label to be affixed to a story about an elected public official, the president excepted. It is the DNA of the “who” in a news report. “Senator Robert Byrd, the Democratic senator from West Virginia, died today.” Take out “Democratic” and try that sentence. It doesn’t work. “Mike Lee, GOP senator from Utah and God’s gift to mankind, coasted to reelection last night.” Ditto.
It follows that the rule applies to stories about political scandal, precisely because it’s just that — politics. But what happens when that cardinal rule is applied to one party but ignored for the other? Favoritism? Bias? No, it’s far worse than just that. It is a commitment to abide by the rules of journalism with one party and then a deliberate attempt to protect the other, even if it means violating the most basic rules of news reporting.

Funny how the left always pins crony capitalism and money to the GOP. Even worse is the fact that most everyone buys it. Not so FAST-
Democrats in Congress have excused the actions of senior IRS bureaucrats, arguing that these Tea Party groups threaten to flood the political system with money from undisclosed sources. Yet at the same time, Democrat politicians benefit from millions in Big Green cash that goes toward groups with similarly political and policy-based goals, and some of that money comes from at least one shadowy foreign source.

President Obama authorized airstrikes against Islamist terrorists in Iraq and approved a humanitarian mission to deliver food and other supplies to tens of thousands of Iraqis trapped on mountaintops, moves that represent the most significant re-engagement in Iraq since formal combat operations ended three years ago.
Speaking at the White House on Thursday night, the president said the U.S. cannot sit idly by as innocent Iraqis are slaughtered by the Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

August 6th, 2014 is the third anniversary of this horrible travesty.
Before Benghazi, There Was Extortion 17
Karen and Billy Vaughn are the parents of a fallen Navy Seal, Aaron Carson Vaughn. I met with the Vaughns when I spoke to a sold-out Tea Party event in Fort Lauderdale in June. The Vaughns are extraordinary heroes. Their courage to speak about Obama’s crippling rules of engagement is to be applauded.
The Vaughns have exposed the delusional U.S. military “rules of engagement” policy that led to the takedown of a Chinook helicopter, Extortion 17, by the Taliban. All 38 people on board the Chinook — 15 SEAL Team Six members (including Aaron Vaughn) and seven Afghan National Army commandos — were killed. The attack on Extortion 17 came just three months after the Osama bin Laden kill, and both Obama and Biden had identified the team that took OBL out. Retribution was inevitable.
