The Least Transparent Administration In History

April 7, 2016 by


By Roger Aronoff ~ For all of President Obama’s assurances that his administration would be the most transparent in history, it has been anything but. Yet the mainstream media fail to cover, again and again, evidence of a corrupt administration hiding regulations from Congress and controlling the press. President Obama continues to lecture the press […]

Contempt Of Congress By Any Other Name

March 26, 2015 by


By Frank Salvato ~ Initially I was going to start with the line, “It is stunning to think,” but then I remembered I was opining about the Obama Administration, of which I have come to expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to nefarious doings meant to advance his agenda. To be certain, all of […]

Obama Administration Fails The Transparency Test

September 26, 2014 by


By Roger Aronoff ~ We have often pointed out the incestuous relationship that exists between the Obama administration and the mainstream media-a media that have largely bought the administration’s line that matters such as Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, and the IRS abuses amount to phony scandals. Throughout his presidency, President Obama has assumed control over media […]

Journos Admit Team Obama More Secretive Than Bush, ‘Very Successful’ At Squashing Stories

October 13, 2013 by


By Tim Graham ~ Trashing the “excessive secrecy” of the Bush administration, Barack Obama came into office pledging open government, but he has fallen far short of that promise. Former Washington Post editor Leonard Downie (pictured) released their tough report at the Committee to Protect Journalists on the Obama administration’s tight control and aggressive prosecution […]

Are Americans Living In A Police State?

July 15, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The thing about a police state is that it tends to creep up on you. One day you think the Bill of Rights is intact and the freedoms you take for granted are intact, but the next day you find out that under the National Defense Authorization Act (HR 1540), signed […]

Another White House Play Date With Muslim Jihad

June 30, 2013 by


By Michelle Malkin ~ Forget Paula Deen. There are far more dangerous bigots and poisonous haters spoiling the American landscape. They cook up violent rhetoric and murderous plots against our troops, our citizens and our allies 24/7. And they have direct access to the White House. Earlier this week, the indefatigable Investigative Project on Terrorism […]

June 11, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ “If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists – to protect them and to promote their common welfare – all else is lost.” – Barack Obama, August 28, 2006 I am trying to think of a time when the federal government was distrusted more. […]

June 8, 2013 by


By Tom Blumer ~ Yesterday, the editorial board at the New York Times published an editorial harshly criticizing President Obama and his administration for continuing to collect the phone records of millions of Verizon customers.

Grassroots America Faces A ‘Lexington’ Moment

May 26, 2013 by

Left-Wing Tyranny: Here’s What It Looks Like

May 23, 2013 by


By Tom McLaughlin ~ It’s chilling. As the curtain lifts, a little here, a little there, we see the tyrannical left cementing itself in big government – and it gives me shivers. The most leftist administration in American history has been using the Internal Revenue Service to harass conservatives. It’s been lying about radical Muslim […]

Pitfalls Of Obama’s Current Political ‘Perfect Storm’

May 18, 2013 by


By Christopher Adamo ~ In a sane world, Barack Obama would already be facing the prospect of impeachment over his mishandling and subsequent cover-up of the Benghazi fiasco. But in a sane world, an inconsequential Illinois State Senator who overwhelmingly voted “present” in order to duck hard issues and who then served only a matter […]

What Is Obama’s Motive?

April 2, 2013 by


By Marlin  Thompson ~ The centerpieces of President Obama’s initiative to lower gun violence are in danger of stalling in Congress. No legislation has been introduced to expand background checks and a proposal for a ban on so-called assault weapons will be introduced that will probably be defeated. Gun control proponents were frustrated when Vice […]

The Administration’s Fog of Transparency

December 1, 2011 by


By Michelle Malkin At the dawn of his administration, President Obama opined: “A democracy requires accountability, and accountability requires transparency.” Magical rays of white-hot sunlight emanated from his media-manufactured halo. And then bureaucratically engineered darkness settled over the land. For three years, White House officials have rolled out countless executive orders and initiatives touting open […]

July 18, 2010 by


By Jim Kouri, CPP. “Besides the news media’s overall silence on illegal immigrants being terrorized, robbed and killed by Mexican authorities, the Obama Administration  and US lawmakers are equally silent.” If the news media were truly unbiased in their reportage of Mexican illegal immigration and told the whole story, Americans would be shocked at the […]

Obama’s Shadow Government

April 30, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba How many of these names do you recognize? Adolfo Carrion, Aneesh Chopra, Earl Devaney, Kenneth Feinberg, Carol Browner, Ed Montgomery, Todd Stern, Cass Sunstein, Ron Bloom, and John Brennan. If none of them ring a bell, it is because they and others are all part of a shadow government of some thirty […]
