  • Cuba: Obama’s foreign policy gem

        It was wonderful to see Air Force One land in Havana, Cuba, and watch the President of the United States depart the plane and launch an historic visit to the long-punished island nation so close to us.
        President Barack Obama has long understood that our nation’s juvenile attitude toward Cuba is an embarrassing relic of the Cold War that needs to be changed.

  • Veterans deserve choice

    Our veterans have done their duty to serve us. It is our now our duty to serve them. That’s the purpose of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA). While many veterans receive quality care from these VA facilities, we still hear horror stories in some parts of the country of long wait times, poor service, and, in some cases, downright negligence by health care providers. This should never be the case, and Congress is responsible for holding the VA accountable.

  • Believest thou this?

    Matthew 27:50-54
    Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

  • Putin makes a fool of Obama, again

        One again, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin has made a fool of Barack Hussein Obama, something he has been doing on a regular basis over the last few years.
        Early last fall, when Russian aircraft began bombing to support Bashar al-Assad’s regime, the Obama administration was livid. Secretary of State John Kerry angrily predicted that Russia had waded into a quagmire.

  • High court nominee deserves hearing

        Last week, President Barack Obama fulfilled his constitutional duty and nominated a federal judge, Merrick Garland, for the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.
        Conservative Republicans in the Senate, who love to promote “upholding the Constitution,” when it suits them, have announced that they will shirk their constitutional duties and not even provide a hearing for this nominee.

  • Protecting the people’s house

    What do regulating puddles, attempting to ban popular ammunition, and making recess appointments have in common? They are all examples of attempts by President Obama to overstep his power and bypass Congress. But these are just a drop in the bucket when it comes to the pattern of overreach we have seen from the Executive Branch in recent years. On nearly every issue – from health care to farming – President Obama has used his pen and phone to rewrite the law on his own.
