Joe “Plugs” Biden’s son Hunter was booted out of the Navy for failing a mandatory drug test. In this case, he tested positive for cocaine. Hunter was only the Navy for about month before his illegal drug use was detected. He needed, not one, but two special waivers to enter the Naval Reserve in 2013. One for his age (i.e over 40), and one for his prior drug conviction. Waivers are usually given special skills in short supply, not “public relations”, which was Plugs Jr’s Navy job. It’s pretty clear that the only reason he got those waivers was that his dad is our Dear Leader‘s bullet proof vest. I’m kinda surprised that this story even ran the New York Times. I’m not surprised that they buried the story on page A22 of the print edition. If this had been the son of a senior Republican elected official, this would have been front page, above the fold news. The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.
Speaking of Presidents, AoSHQ shows how a President should behave. Here is a hint, it isn’t spending more time on the golf course than in intelligence briefings.
Back to one of Barry’s many, many scandals. Sharyl Attkinsson is still digging up fresh dirt on the Obama so called “Justice Department” illegally running firearms to Mexican drug cartels.
It’s good to know American still has real heroes. Example: Veteran stands up for 2nd Amendment at Chicago anti-gun forum
In democrat controlled Los Angeles, CA, police have been sending out patrol cars that collect the licence plate number of every car around them. These “Law Enforcement” agencies have refused to release any information about the data they have collected because, wait for it, every single car seen is under investigation. Really.

Former adult film actress Jenna Jameson nails the difference between the first tweets made on September 11 by Gov. Mitt Romney and our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama. They clearly show that one is a true leader with concern for America and has a real connection to the American people. The other is a sleazy political hack from Chicago.
The democrats’ War on Women is still in full frontal assault mode. As I have pointed out before, if you want to know what the left is up to, just review what they are accusing their opponents of.
The New York Times finally admits that the “Assault Weapon” scare was hoax, an attempt to bamboozle the American people, and that the 1994 semi-automatic rifle ban did nothing to reduce crime, violent crime, or crimes committed with a firearm.

“…the sheer “I won” in-your-face immaturity of the Obamaites — remember the “Hey, Hey, Goodbye” chant to Bush at the inauguration — ensured that people would be angrier than normal. And they did that on purpose because a sharply divided nation suited them politically. Now Ron Fournier wonders if Americans would rally behind Obama after another 9/11 the way we rallied behind Bush, and I think the answer is no — because Obama has spent his entire time in office flicking boogers at half the country.
As I’ve said before, the reason why presidents traditionally act “presidential” isn’t because they’re stiffly formal, it’s because acting presidential, rather than purely political, lets you appeal to the whole country in ways that a pure partisan can’t. Obama doesn’t care, and we may very well pay for that, too. But elections have consequences, and when you elect a guy like Obama, the consequences are bad ones.”

Reality can crack the leftist spin central of HuffPo every once in rare while. Former MA congresscritter and far left extremist (yes, I’m being redundant) Barney Frank is shocked to discover that our Dear Leader lied to the American People.
Nobody should be shocked to find out that Lois Lerner, of the Obama IRS department, who deliberately, and illegally, targeted conservative groups for unwarranted IRS investigations in order to deny them their constitutional first amendment rights, called those she targeted “crazies” and “a–holes.” What is even less shocking is that the so-called “mainstream” media doesn’t care.
Texas democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee lied to the American people on the floor of congress. OK, to be fair, given her track record of underwhelming intellectual performance, she may have just not remembered that she was the co-sponsor of a bill to impeach President George W. Bush, that the democrats in the House passed.
On the international front, Japan gives Vietnam six navy ships amid regional tension. To put it more bluntly, the Japanese government is giving something other than a twitter hash tag to Communist China. By doing so, Japan demonstrates that it has more balls than Barack Hussein Obama, who is mostly phoning it in these days.
Going back to the domestic front, is it a real ‘crisis’ or merely a leftist talking point the democrats can use to steal money from the gullible rubes who wouldn’t recognize real science even it gave them frost bite.
Truesbury, a “…satiric re-imagining of Doonesbury as it would be if the Washington Post and G.D. Trudeau had as much fire in the belly for illuminating the transgressions of a Democrat White House as they did for one run by the GOP.”

When you point out that the current federal debt is $17.6 Trillion and climbing, far left democrat extremists are quick to point out that the deficit is down.
Which is true, but note that they don’t point out the deficit reduction is from a peak during Obama’s reign, but up from the time he took office.
Let’s look at the actual numbers.
The current federal deficit is $572.1 billion, with a federal tax revenue of $2.9 trillion. So Barry’s handling of the federal government is to spend over a half trillion dollars than he is taking in, even with the federal tax revenue at record high levels.
So what is that $572.1 trillion dollar deficit down from?
Let’s look at the federal deficit in 2012, after several years of Barry’s firm fiscal hand. it was at $1.1 Trillion. The federal tax income was $2.4 trillion. Do the math here kids. Our Dear Leader hasn’t reduced spending, he has jacked taxes through the roof. The deficit is down about $400 billion, and increase in federal tax income is up $500 million. So he has also increased federal spending instead of paying down the $17.6 trillion federal debt.
Let’s go back to 2008, near the end of two terms of President George W. Bush. The federal deficit was $408.1 Billion with a federal tax income of $2.5 trillion. Note that the deficit was in fact lower than it is currently, and that is with $400 billion less in federal tax revenue.
So when a democrat claims that the deficit is down, that person is is in fact, deliberately lying by omission. The federal deficit under Obama has gone up, despite squeezing nearly a additional half a trillion dollars out of the pockets of tax paying US citizens in an economy that can be politely described as “stagnant” at best.

Let’s start with a couple of RKBA related stories. The city of Chicago, were over 40 people shot and four killed last weekend, has to pay the NRA nearly $1 million in legal fees. A recent study shows that violent crime has gone down as conceal carry permits have been issued to more law abiding Americans. This makes sense to anyone capable of rational thought and basic logic. It makes moonbats go bat shit crazy though, since it doesn’t fit their far left extremist agenda.
A federal judge has tossed out a Obama administration request to have law suits against the IRS dropped. Legal action by nearly a dozen Tea Party groups targeted by the IRS can go forward. Expect more hard drive “crashes”.
