Obama co-sponsored bill
strengthening Illinois
stand-your-ground law in 2004

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 7/22/2013 8:53:27 AM

Now we have proof that the current Obama-Holder campaign against stand-your-ground laws is nothing more than a pose intended to distract from their political problems, having whipped up a racialist fury and pushed prosecution of George Zimmerman. Although State Senator Barack Obama could boast of few legislative accomplishments, one thing he did do was co-sponsor a bill strengthening the Illionois stand-your-ground law. The Illinois Review writes: The Obama-sponsored bill (SB 2386) enlarged the state´s 1961 law by shielding the person who was attacked from being sued in civil court by perpetrators or their estates

A sane person would resign and flee the country rather than continuously embarrass himself.

Ah, but for a liberal history starts anew everyday. And the sycophant media will just not report this, so it never happened. Next?

Since Obama never read the bill he `co-sponsored`, he thought Stand Your Ground meant gang members can shoot back at other gang member that shoot at them first.

He was for it before he was against it. Just like his switch on same sex "marriage".

Seven Senate Democrats joined with Republicans to deliver a humiliating defeat to President Obama and to the far left race demagogues. Debo P. Adegbile, head of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, and an avid supporter of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal, failed to receive confirmation as the next head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, despite operating under the new rules instituted by Harry Reid requiring only a simple majority for confirmation. .

Putin Doesn´t Threaten Our

Vladimir Putin isn’t the Easter Bunny. On the other hand, he isn’t Joseph Stalin. It takes a truly fevered imagination to see Russian forces in the Crimea as a prelude to Russian tanks rolling across Europe toward Berlin and Paris. Putin is a power player who cares more about Russia’s national interests, and Russian minorities in his near abroad, than in that mythical force known as world opinion. Would that America had a president who cared more about our interests than in promoting globalism and the left’s social agenda. The Crimea’s population is 60% ethnic Russian. For most of the past 800

Why Hillary Will Flop

Beltway folk hold silly notions. Hillary is deemed formidable, and Republicans should hope she does not win the Democrat nomination in 2016. I disagree. Hillary is a weak candidate for president, and if she is nominated, she will lose the general election. Consider four aspects of a Hillary candidacy in the general election: (1) foreign policy, (2) domestic policy, (3) candidate appeal. The sole executive experience of Hillary in her life has been as Obama’s secretary of state. During those years, she did nothing but leave a dreadful legacy for America

If you want to know why everything is going wrong for Obama and the Democrats, from Obamacare to Ukraine, the answer is simple. Liberals got everything they asked for, from stimulus to “reset.” I know: Crimea River. (snip)Take Obama. Liberals got exactly what they wanted: America´s First Black President. But they also got an Affirmative Action president who didn´t have the wisdom or the authority to change the battle plan once he got into power. It mattered that Obama went full-ahead on the Democrats´ agenda for Obamacare, “stimulus,” green energy after the worst financial crisis in living memory. The economy needed

The Real ObamaCare Horror Story

Recently, Senator Harry Reid addressed the American people from the Senate floor and solemnly claimed that “there’s plenty of horror stories being told,” about ObamaCare. “All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.” In essence, the senator called me and numerous other Americans being impacted by ObamaCare liars. I have been called many names before, but liar was not one of them. My most recent title before Harry accused me of being a liar was Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patient. I was diagnosed in 2012 after a significant episode that attacked both my brain and spinal cord. During this

When JFK looked weak to Nikita Khrushchev, we got the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1963. When Jimmy Carter bear-hugged Brezhnev, we got the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. When Bill Clinton failed to stop Bin Laden for seven whole years, we got 9/11/01 in New York City. And when Obama clowned it up for the world, alienating our allies and bowing down to our deadly enemies, we got this week’s Russian invasion of the Ukraine. And that’s only the beginning. Just you watch. Putin is establishing a naval presence in Venezuela and Cuba. He already has a major naval base in

“What, me worry?” seems to be the operating philosophy of President Obama as a serious crisis brews in Eastern Europe.

It appears President Obama did not attend. (snip)According to Time magazine´s Zeke Miller, Obama skipped the meeting.

The religious freedom legislation that gelatin-spined Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed wasn´t controversial until the Left started lying about it. The state-level civil rights bill that Brewer mothballed Feb. 26 was killed by a media-led propaganda campaign that falsely characterized it as "anti-gay." To no one´s surprise, both of the GOP´s last two RINO losers, Mitt Romney and John McCain, urged a veto. (Snip) The legislation that Brewer fashioned into an origami rainbow was aimed at discouraging activist thuggery. It is necessary because progressive activists have become increasingly aggressive and even sadistic during the Obama

Obama: the Pen,
Phone, and Failure

Barack Obama is a failure as president, and with a little less than 3 years before he leaves office, people are starting to notice. On the economy, he has presided over the worst economic recovery from recession since WW II, and the lowest labor force participation rate in decades. He spent a trillion dollars of ‘stimulus,’ rewarding political backers and cronies, while exploding the budget line. This he touts as a great success, saving the nation from depression and saving or creating 6 million jobs. The ‘saved or created’ thing is perfect when trying to cast failure as success. Who can check

Culture of corruption

Evidence is accumulating of a corrupt bureaucratic culture in many, if not all, federal agencies. Revelations of lavish meetings at fancy hotels, featuring stupid but expensive custom-made videos emerged in the last couple of years. But even worse, cases of bureaucrats stealing from taxpayers by taking time off while still being paid high salaries have been reported recently, with their supervisors knowingly turning a blind eye to the taxpayer rip-off. The EPA’s highest-paid employee pretended to be a CIA agent and defrauded the taxpayers of about $900,000 (snip) Officials in two Treasury Department bureaus fraudulently enriched themselves at taxpayer expense,

Yesterday at the Federal Communications Commission in Washington, DC there was an off-the-record meeting with FCC Commissioner O´Reilly and members of the press which I attended.(snip) at the off the record meeting questions were asked about the H-block airwaves license auction, net neutrality, and the Comcast/Time Warner Merger. There were also chummier questions such as "How do you get along with the new FCC Chairman?" With reporters present from major news agencies and papers from around the country, what was startling was this: There was only one question asked about the Survey of Critical Information Needs. Just one. By me.

Lois Lerner fears for her life if she testifies openly before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, according to her attorney. House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced Sunday that Lerner will testify at Wednesday’s hearing, but Lerner’s attorney Bill Taylor said that Lerner will seek to continue invoking her Fifth Amendment rights and will also seek a one-week delay of her testimony. Oversight members are reportedly open to granting Lerner a one-week delay if she petitions for one in person at Wednesday’s hearing. The delay would allow Lerner’s lawyers to

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness. This was the guy known for dramatic stagecraft and brilliant political framing, and this is what we get? Just amazing.

Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B. Anthony joined with other suffragists to pass the 19th Amendment, which was finally accomplished in 1919.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asserted Monday that George W. Bush, who exited office in 2009, is ultimately at fault for the current Ukrainian crisis. Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” Ms. Maddow said during a discussion about her new

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

A shocking poll released Tuesday shows overwhelming majorities of people in Virginia, New York and New Jersey support a national gun registry. The survey released Tuesday was done jointly by Roanoke College in Virginia, Rutgers-Eagleton in New Jersey and Siena College in New York. It shows that 68 percent of New York voters and a whopping 74 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of establishing a national gun registry. Even in the southern state of Virginia — which has gone blue in recent years — 63 percent want the federal government to track all guns. NRA Spokesman Andrew

We now know — even the Associated Press, better described as the Administration’s Press, has now acknowledged it — that President Barack Obama, in AP’s words, “did not participate” in a White House meeting of his national security team Saturday morning “to get updates on the situation and discuss policy options” in reaction to Russia’s invasion and takeover of Crimea and threatened military intervention in the rest of Ukraine. Those who need help getting past AP’s whitewashing need to understand that “did not participate” means “did not attend.” Last time I checked, the president of the United States was the nation’s

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition--weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to
