Conservative Comedy 5/29/15

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. Barack Obama spoke at the commencement of the US Coast Guard Academy last week to make the graduates aware of the crucial role they’ll be playing in his War On Weather. Specifically, he declared that “climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security–an immediate risk to our national security. And make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. So we need to act, and we need to act now.” As if this wasn’t enough to get the graduating class glancing nervously at the skies, Obama said that failure to embrace liberal climate change orthodoxy amounted to negligence and dereliction of duty.  He then linked the raping, murdering, kidnapping, slave-trading activities of pretty much every terrorist organization to the alleged reduction in the world’s precious permafrost. Hope n’ Change puts it this way: he’s less concerned with ISIS at our doors than ices at our poles. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted takes us into the weekend […]

King Obama – Lord of the waters

Apparently, Obama really does consider himself the king of America. On Wednesday, his highness decreed himself lord of the waters as he claimed dominion over all of the nation’s streams, creeks, rills, ditches, books, rivulets, burns, tributaries, cricks, wetlands–probably the puddle in your driveway–in a sweeping move meant to assert his unilateral federal authority. Using the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers, Obama will use the authority he claims to possess to finalize a clean water rule intended to protect the streams and wetlands that one in three Americans rely on for drinking water. Under the cover of the Clean Water Act, federal officials say they are simply trying to help businesses comply with regulations; no small task considering the thousands and thousands of regulations heaped on American businesses since the king began his reign. “This rule is about clarification, and in fact, we’re adding exclusions for features like artificial lakes and ponds, water-filled depressions from construction and grass swales,” said EPA boss Gina McCarthy. “This rule will make it easier to identify protected waters and will make those protections consistent with the law as well as the latest peer-reviewed science. This rule is science based.” Wait […]

Behind Rand Paul’s folly

When I wrote this post about Rand Paul’s foolishness about ISIS, I stuck mostly to highlighting why Sen. Paul’s opinion is dangerous. Today, it’s time to attack the beliefs that form the foundation for that wrongheaded thinking. Like his lunatic father before him, Sen. Paul thinks that ISIS won’t hurt us if we just leave […]

Tucker Carlson’s Rand Paul moment

Anyone watching this video has to wonder whether Tucker Carlson has paid attention the last 12 years: Watch the latest video at Here’s the transcript that calls his analytic skills into question: CARLSON: The question I would ask, and I’m not endorsing Rand Paul, but I do think you need a moment of national […]

Ending wars responsibly = losing wars

In 2006, then-Candidate Amy Klobuchar talked daily about “responsibly ending” the war in Iraq. At the time, I was disgusted with the thought of “ending wars” because it didn’t speak to winning wars. Starting in 2007 and continuing through 2008, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama talked about “ending wars responsibly”. Obama picked up on the […]

Innocents die while politicians lie

A few days ago in Minnesota, a thousand miles from the southwest border, two illegal aliens were arrested for the brutal murder of a 90-year-old man who had hired them to paint his house. This did not happen in Texas or Arizona, which serves to remind us that all 50 states are now “border states.” Some states are more hospitable and “welcoming” to illegal aliens than others. Minnesota has been on the honor roll of these “sanctuary states,” where politicians put up legal roadblocks to enforcement of federal immigration laws. Under the banner of “immigrant rights,” people who are NOT immigrants are given equal access to jobs and public benefits while federal immigration enforcement is suppressed. The politicians who have made Minnesota a sanctuary for illegal aliens by suppressing immigration law enforcement have not yet been indicted as co-conspirators in the recent murder, but they should be. Politicians’ lies about our open borders have created this politically correct tolerance for the intolerable. The Minnesota investigation will likely reveal that the two men charged with the crime have been arrested before but never reported to the federal immigration enforcement agency, ICE. Most states have halted all cooperation with ICE and do […]
