On Monday, June 16, the Washington DC press got a glimpse of Saba Ahmed, and were all too eager to provide her the platform she craves.

White House Spins Obama’s Role in Benghazi

Reposted from Heritage.org: With the weekend’s grand slam appearance on the Sunday talk shows by yet another official unqualified to talk about Benghazi, the Obama Administration has again shot itself in the foot.

Doing The Job American Media Won’t Do

Univision has been the only broadcast media daring to ask some tough questions of Barky, and now they’re taking it a step further: airing tonightat 7 p.m PT with English subtitles, their “Here and Now” program explores Barky’s gun-running operation in-depth.

Obama Admin. blames US troops for Afghan ‘friendly fire’ attacks, orders ‘sensitivity training’

AS190_Afghan_G_20091023173851-553x350

Obama is more than welcome to haul his “sensitive” behind to the front lines and see how hospitable of a welcome he’d get from these terrorists. Our troops deserve better than being insulted and betrayed by this sorry pretender of a “commander-in-chief”! Paul Sperry reports at the New York Post: Afghan security forces, our supposed […]

Andrew_Breitbart_by_Gage_Skidmore

Obama State Dept: Egypt Is an Ally Despite What Obama Says – YouTube

Let’s be honest here: President Obama’s foreign policy has been revealed to be in complete shambles.

One might say that his chickens have come home to roost.

This morning’s shocking headline at Breitbart was something that many of us never thought we’d see in our lifetimes:
Obama: Egypt ‘Not An Enemy’, Not An Ally

The obvious question, of course, is why our President thought things would turn out any differently because of his policies of appeasement with the Muslim Brotherhood, or if he even cares.

  • Transit Today: Marketing Over Mobility October 20, 2017
    Denver’s Regional Transit District (RTD) won an award for its airport rail line.
