MRAP

Coming to Small Town, U.S.A. near you…..16 ton MRAP

Mine Resistant Armored Protection vehicle or MRAP were developed in 2007 to protect our military troops from mines and IEDs (improvised explosive devices) in Iraq.  However through a government program now small municipalities have them including mine.  North Augusta is an iconic small town with the population of less than 22,000 according to the last census of 2012.

Obamacare is the “Law of the land”….or not

One would question the motive of this administration to set into motion yet another delay in the “law of the land” known as Obamacare.   Just months ago during the debate on the shutdown of the Government, Republicans were attacked by the liberal  press for suggesting any part of a delay in the ACA (affordable healthcare act); but now President Obama is cloaking the decision as a way to “smooth out” the kinks of the process that is “working the way it should”. It was suggested by Ed Henry (Fox News WH correspondent) to Press Secretary Jay Carney this week that the news of yet another delay appeared a “political” one but Carney brushed off such notion, albeit in a not very convincible fashion.

Holder’s Fast & Furious: Still an Inconvenient Truth…

103026_6001-320x240
It will soon be three years since the murder of border patrol agent Brian Terry, involving guns secretly sent to Mexican drug cartels by Eric Holder and his Department of Justice.  As this writer has reported in several past articles, the Obama administration has worked tirelessly to cover up the scandal and pass it off as nothing more than a GOP distraction. No one in the ATF department has been reprimanded for their roles and as with other stories that expose scandals of this administration, even the media was complicit in turning a blind eye to the story. Of course Obama had a campaign to win after all so it wasn’t convenient to really tell the truth to the voters at the time.

Priorities: Paying for Wine Goblets (but not Veterans)

Ever notice that when it is convenient for President Obama to come to the cameras to bash the Tea Party and House Republicans, he is “Johnny on the spot”. However, when it comes to explaining why he is refusing to negotiate, he walks away from that tough question.  We’ve heard how the WWII veterans were kept from visiting the war memorial that was erected in their honor and we’ve also heard about veterans being arrested.  The National Mall was available for Democrats and people who are pushing for amnesty with the immigration bill, but 5 blocks away the WWII Memorial was still closed.

The Left Using Another Tragedy for Gun Control

Like the tragedy in Sandy Hook as well as the thwarted attempt by Michael Hill this week in Decatur, Georgia to shoot children in an elementary school, mental health, dysfunctional family unit and isolation are some of the factors in recent tragic gun shootings not the guns themselves.  Democratic liberal politicians and progressive media focus on confiscation of guns because they feel if we have no guns on the streets then no one will be killed or injured.

Can America Be Great Again?

Many of us remember when we first watched the launch of a Space Shuttle.  We can also recall where we were during the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, losing our brave astronauts who had given their lives for the dream of space exploration.  Likewise, many of us will also recall the day we watched our Space Shuttles being placed in museums around the country, because a new President decided he no longer wanted America to be known as a “great nation”. – See more at: http://politichicks.tv/column/racing-to-the-middle-can-american-be-great-again/#sthash.6p6k1zim.dpuf

Trey Gowdy-South Carolina’s own “Dirty Harry Callahan”!

Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of watching Representative Trey Gowdy will understand the correlation between his kind of “no holds bar” stance and that of Clint Eastwood’s character Harry Callahan in the Dirty Harry movies.  Like Eastwood, Gowdy is no nonsense and has no problem telling you what he thinks when he is in action! A former state and federal prosecutor, Trey Gowdy is determined to represent the people who elected him to the 4th congressional district seat of South Carolina and in my opinion he is most certainly making the people of South Carolina proud! -

Google “Fast and Furious”…Crickets…

If you do a search of “Fast and Furious” in Yahoo, Ask.com, Google or Bing search engines, it’s interesting what pops up on the results page (or more accurately, what doesn’t pop up). Bing had the gun running scandal listed on the same page as the latest Vin Diesel movie.  And if you put the name “John Dodson”, who is one of the Fast and Furious whistleblowers, you will get an MMA fighter.  The lack of information on Internet search engines reminds me of the Obama administration and how they have tried their hardest to make the 800lb. gorilla that is Fast and Furious disappear.

Fast and Furious….More Like Slow and Sedated- My latest for Politichicks!

Wonder why you haven’t heard any news on the murder of border patrol agent Brian Terry for a while? I bet the parents and family members of Mr. Terry would like the truth to be told but at this point it does not look as though they will get justice.

Considered an expert on the Fast and Furious scandal, Townhall.com editor Katie Pavlich recently asserted that not only has the Obama administration been silent on the F&F scandal but that they used the tragic events of Brian Terry’s death to push for gun control. Props and politicizing tragic events seem to be a normal behavior for this administration does it not? Yet, according to Pavlich “This is a situation where the government was creating a situation where they could blame law-abiding citizens, turn them into criminals and create this false problem that they could solve through gun regulation,” Pavlich said. Pavlich is not the only commentator to assert that Fast and Furious was an attempt to curb the Second Amendment. NRA executive vice-president Wayne LaPierre said in 2011 that “Fast and Furious” was a “plot to undermine” the right to bear arms.
