Sharansky, the Soviets and Iran

Natan Sharansky’s op-ed provides a stunning contrast between the Obama administration’s Iran capitulation and President Eisenhower’s negotiations with the then-Soviet Union. Check this out: For starters, consider that the Soviet regime felt obliged to make its first ideological concession simply to enter into negotiations with the United States about economic cooperation. At the end of […]

Conservative Comedy 4/17/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change notes that yesterday was Holocaust Remembrance Day. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu marked the sad occasion with a speech in which he likened the United States’ tentative deal with Iran to the European appeasement to Hitler which let to World War II and the Holocaust. Or perhaps “Holocaust I” as it may be known after “Holocaust II” occurs on Barack Obama’s timetable. Russia is already preparing to ship “defensive” missiles to Iran as soon as sanctions are lifted, and those mischievous psychopaths in North Korea are planning on selling missile system parts to Obama’s pals as well. And even the president acknowledges that the “best case” scenario for his deal will only forestall the possible incineration of the Jewish state for 10 years. And that’s assuming that Iran, for the first time ever , lives up to their word. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted takes us into the weekend with these headlines: The nuclear deal […]

Obamanomics Is Causing Stagnation, Especially for Blacks

Way back in 2010, I shared two very depressing numbers to illustrate how Obama’s policies were creating “regime uncertainty.” I shared data on the cash reserves of companies and suggested it was bad news that those firms thought it made more sense to sit on money rather than invest it. I also shared numbers on […]

Illegals and ISIS: Two for the price of one

Do you remember when the State Department’s Marie Harf educated those of us too stupid to understand her “nuanced” comments on the subject, that the reason ISIS had become a group of murdering terrorist thugs was due to the lack of job opportunities? Do you recall how Obama often uses similar language whenever he tries to justify his unconstitutional executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens? Well, based on information released today, these apparently unrelated scenarios might have quite a bit in common with each other. According to sources cooperating with Judicial Watch, ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, TX. The terrorist group has established a base around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” which is situated just west of Ciudad Juarez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another cell in Puerto Palomas targets Columbus, N.M. and Deming, N.M. for easy access to the U.S. During the course of a joint operation, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of the U.S. Army’s Fort Bliss. Muslim prayer rugs were also recovered. The Anapra area is well-known as an area […]

RINO Bob Corker delivers for Obama on Iran nuke deal

It was just last week that I wrote about the stupidity on display by the Obama administration in their nuclear discussions with Iran that essentially guarantees that the rogue nation will have a nuclear weapon in the very near future. In that piece, I also mentioned how RINO WIMP Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, after a meeting with Obama, would cave on a bill he co-sponsored which was intended to keep Obama’s discussions with Iran in check. Well, guess what… Corker and the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee agreed on a bill that gives Congress authority to review any nuclear deal with Iran. Speaking like a man worthy of the “F” grade he has earned with the  Conservative Review, Corker was nearly orgasmic in his announcement: “It absolutely, 100 percent, keeps the congressional review process in place.” Sounds good, doesn’t it? But I think Corker got his talking points wrong. I think he meant to say that “it absolutely, 100 percent, keeps congress in its place.” Obama had several objections to the original Corker bill: He objected to the requirement that he certify that Iran had ceased supporting terrorist groups He objected to a 60-day congressional review period He objected to provisions that he says […]

Ted Cruz was right about Net Neutrality

Do you remember several years ago during the Obamacare debates when those who opposed it warned of higher prices, less access, and too much government control? Do you remember how Obama promised the opposite with lower prices, greater access, and a promise that “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor?” Do you remember during the Net Neutrality debates when those who opposed it warned of higher prices, less access, and too much government control? Do you remember how Obama promised the opposite with lower prices, greater access, and a promise that Net Neutrality wouldn’t affect your current service? Well, it’s only been a few weeks and I’ll bet you know what I’m about to say. According to a recent L.A. Times analysis, of all places, the recently adopted regulations will make your monthly Internet bill more complicated and more expensive. Here’s why: Every month, consumers pay a small fee on their phone bill for a federal program that uses the money to provide affordable access to telecommunications service in rural areas, underserved inner cities and schools. (But) now the fee could start appearing on broadband bills too, in a major expansion of the nearly two-decade-old Universal Service Fund program. […]
