The mass shooting in Colorado that never was

Three days ago President Obama delivered somber remarks in the aftermath of the mass shootings at Umpqua Community College near Roseburg Oregon. “The reporting is routine,” Obama said. “My response here at this podium ends up being routine, the conversation in the aftermath of it. We’ve become numb to this.” In some regards he’s right. CNN reported that Obama has now delivered statements regarding (domestic) gun violence 15 times in his near 7 years in office. By any standard of measure – liberal, conservative or ‘other’- that’s 15 times too many. But there’s a stunning gap in Presidential time-and-again remarks, a flaw in liberal logic so screechingly loud that any and all can see it but that liberals refuse to acknowledge. Liberals such as Obama continually call for in imposition of (more) “gun-free zones” despite the facts that a) no such thing exists, and, b) about the only places we see these mass shootings taking place is in these very “zones.” Of the more recent shootings that have captivated headlines Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado was a posted “gun-free zone”; Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg Virginia was a posted “gun-free-zone”; as are all U.S. military bases, Fort Hood, Texas […]

Stemming the tide of over-regulation by big government

The reason most often cited for the success of the nonpolitical candidates is the frustration with Washington; the sense that the system is broken. Voters feel that we have no control and that government has gone wild. Even people who don’t watch the news or closely follow politics are aware of the “overreach.” It seems that, perhaps, the messages the outsiders have been heralding on the trail has caught on. Washington’s overreach has been rolled back—by courts and commissioners and, even, in response, the government itself. In little more than 30 days, there have been five distinct cases that you may have missed—each, a victory for responsible land use. WOTUS: First was WOTUS, or the Waters of the U.S. rule—which was scheduled for full implementation on, Friday, August 28. WOTUS attempted to greatly expand the federal government’s authority over water and land and could apply to ditches, streams, wetlands and small isolated bodies of water. Late on Thursday, August 27, U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson issued a temporary injunction sought by North Dakota and 12 other states. In his decision, Erickson wrote: “Once the rule takes effect, the states will lose their sovereignty over interstate waters that will then be […]

What is Obama’s end game for massive immigration?

The Obama administration is launching a campaign to accelerate the conversion of millions of immigrants to citizenship. The nation’s immigration agencies will spend big bucks on “outreach” activities and the Naturalization process will be streamlined. The goal is to add several million new citizens to the voter rolls by November 2016. If you think the Naturalization process is governed by law and long–established rules so we need not worry about shortcuts and wholesale fraud–wake up. This is the Obama Administration we are talking about. If you think immigration law enforcement was politicized, wait until you see what citizenship fraud looks like. It will become very politically incorrect to question any immigrant’s right to vote. The fact that newly naturalized citizens routinely vote Democrat more than Republican by 3-to-1 is, no doubt, a pure coincidence and has nothing to do with the desire to “expedite” the creation of new citizens. By law, a legal immigrant can apply for citizenship and begin the Naturalization process after five years. There are over 8.8 million immigrants now eligible. Another 5 million will become eligible in the next four years. Approximately 1.5 million each year will become eligible over the next decade. Between now and […]

Obama’s Gestapo is going global

  If you’re a regular reader of The Strident Conservative (or listener on KLZ560 at 3pm Mountain), you know that I have commented extensively on actions taken by Obama and the Democrats to create a new form of Gestapo in America. Along with the use of race-baiting following the events in Ferguson, MO. and Baltimore, MD., Obama has established a set of policies that are making it possible for him to create a national police force, just as he indicated he would do as a candidate in 2008. Well fasten your seat belts America! Obama and the United Nations are taking this idea global! Last week, Attorney General Loretta “Holder 2.0” Lynch announced at the United Nations that her office would be working in several American cities to form what she called the Strong Cities Network (SCN), a new law enforcement initiative that would encompass the globe. If created, the SCN would essentially override America law, including our Constitutional rights, in favor of a set of laws originating from UN. As with most of Obama’s “transformation of America” ideas, since this initiative is being launched independent of the White House or any other part of the administration, this will be […]

Charles C.W. Cooke vs. President Obama

It’s a good thing for President Obama that Charles C.W. Cooke doesn’t have a megaphone as big as the president’s. If he did, Mr. Cooke would’ve already have given the constitutional law professor the beating in mock court that he deserves. This post totally obliterates President Obama’s gun control arguments. Cooke quotes President Obama from […]

Conservative Comedy 10/2/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative where 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. Well that didn’t take long. Following a one-on-one meeting at the U.N. which gave Vladimir Putin the ability to measure the degree to which Barack Obama is a mewling pantywaist, the Russian dictator launched a surprise attack in Syria (after graciously ordering the United States to get the hell out of the way) on the anti-Assad rebels being funded and trained by the CIA. As a brilliant political analyst pointed out a long time ago (okay, it was Hope n’ Change), Putin has now made it official and uncontestable that the United States is no longer in the superpower business. We have lost our place in the world order thanks to the massive incompetence (not to mention intentional malfeasance) of the Obama administration – including former Secretary of Scapegoating Hillary “reset button” Clinton. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted takes us into the weekend with these headlines: Boehner’s resignation from Congress, Obama’s State Dinner with China’s Xi Jinping, and the Pope speaks to Congress. Additional […]
