New Surveillance Whistleblower John Tye Says NSA Violating U.S. Constitution

Move over Edward Snowden, there’s a new surveillance whistleblower on the scene. His name is John Napier Tye and he’s warning Americans about illegal spying. John Tye claims he filed a complaint with the State Department before leaving. In other words, he’s no leaker like Edward Snowden. Tye, a former State Department official who served in the Obama administration from 2011 to 2014, said that ongoing surveillance...

Gov. Martin O’Malley Dings President Obama, Hillary Clinton on Border Crisis

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is looking more and more like a possible Democratic presidential candidate and he’s putting some distance between himself and President Obama, particularly on the border crisis and the undocumented children streaming across the borders. Watch out Hillary, maybe the nomination isn’t yours for the taking. O’Malley believes these children, or “refugees” as he calls them,...

John Boehner to Sue President Obama Over Unilaterally Delaying Employer Mandate

The GOP clown car just keeps on rolling….Just when you think Congressional Republicans couldn’t sink any lower with their obstructionist tactics, House Speaker John Boehner just outdid himself. He now plans to sue President Obama for not imposing the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act fast enough. Yes, fast enough. But wait, didn’t we have a government shutdown led by Teabagger Sen. Ted Cruz over defunding...

Russian President Putin Congratulates President Obama on Independence Day

Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated President Obama on Independence Day and called for the ties between both countries to continue to develop on a “pragmatic and equal basis.” Seems to me Putin stuck his finger in America’s eye by granting NSA leaker Edward Snowden temporary asylum and thumbing his nose when he invaded the Crimean region. In his message of congratulations, Mr Putin said that he hopes that...

GOP FAIL: ‘Imperial President’ Obama Remains Defiant on Executive Orders

President Obama is calling the bluff of the Republican Party, most notably Mr. Do Nothing, House Speaker John Boehner’s threatened lawsuit. Well, guess who can’t stand it? The Republicans. They are still pushing the “imperial presidency” line because Obama said if the Congress won’t work with him, he’ll go it alone. Um, I wonder how long will it take for them to realize they aren’t dealing...

HYPOCRISY: Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney Blast President Obama on Iraq Crisis

Former vice president Dick Cheney and his daughter, failed Senate candidate Liz Cheney, took to the Wall Street Journal to sharply criticize President Barack Obama on Iraq. Oh, the irony — this is coming from one of the chief engineers of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. The Cheneys painted a picture of gloom and doom from the start of their op-ed:  “Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so...

Is The Right Wing Trying to Make Thomas Alfred Taylor Hillary Clinton’s Willie Horton?

The right wing has dug up some tapes of Hillary Clinton talking about representing accused child rapist Thomas Alfred Taylor. This is akin to the Tony Rezko case they tried to smear Barack Obama with during the 2008 presidential campaign or even his former pastor Jeremiah Wright. Remember how the Republicans smeared Mike Dukakis with Willie Horton? I wish the Republican Party would spend some time telling us how they would make life...

Oliver North Slams President Obama for Funding Terrorist Organization with Bowe Bergdahl Swap

The right wing hypocrisy in the Bergdahl prisoner swap knows no bounds. The least credible person of all, Ret. Lt. Col. Oliver North, is giving his two cents. He has the nerve to accuse President Obama of financing a terrorist organization with the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. You will recall Oliver North was up to his neck in the Iran-Contra scandal, in which the Reagan administration unlawfully sold arms to Iran to secure the...
