Obama’s Most Dangerous ‘Enemies’ are Being Targeted There  is a pattern emerging in the Obama Presidency. He is at war with reality; his  greatest enemies are facts. And he has been targeting for years a small group of  people whose duty is to expose the truth. Their loyalty runs to the citizenry  and not to Barack Obama. They are not […]

By: Steve Maley This renewable fuel is anything but green. It’s one of the cheesiest anti-oil PR campaigns I’ve seen: a “promoted” twitter account called @TheOilyBird, a snarky oil company h8r. Enviros and greenies retweet @TheOilyBird’s oil industry bashing, without bothering to look at its source. As it turns out, TheOilyBird has his own website: I’m fighting for a cleaner […]

The Gang of Eight bill will reduce Republicans and conservatives to a permanent minority status. For the last century, immigrants who came in big waves voted at least 2-to-1 Democratic, in recent years it was 3-to-1, and there is zero evidence that the amnestied persons believe in Republican principles such as limited government and balanced budgets.  http://www.conservativeactionalerts.com/2013/05/gang-of-eight-betrays-americans/  Gang of Eight […]
