Cagle: Barack Obama, The Elephant In The Room

To say Democrats have soured on President Obama would be an understatement. It has become abundantly clear in recent weeks that liberal candidates across the country have not been shy in their snubbing of Obama on the campaign trail. The only races Obama has been welcome to make appearances for are a handful of Governor’s races. To add insult to injury, last week, in deep-Blue Maryland while President Obama was addressing the crowd, the audience began to file out during his speech. It happened yet again in Wisconsin this week. Not a good sign when the President of the United States can’t keep a crowd in Democrat-friendly states.

Former Executive Director of the Democratic Governors’ Association Nathan Daschle put it this way, “In Senate races, voters are looking through the lens of federal politics, and voters are getting a president with the lowest approval of his presidency right now.” Not only is Obama at his lowest approval rating, but according to a CNN poll, nearly 7 in 10 Americans are angry with the direction of the country – a rating that all Americans would be quick to blame President Obama for.

President Obama will be making zero stops in battle ground states even though we are mere days away from the midterm elections. Although Obama has attended lavish dinners with Hollywood A-listers and liberal elitist millionaires, raising money for the Democrat Party to supply the endless and stale attack ads this election season – no candidate on the ballot wants him anywhere near them when it isn’t about raising money, but about gaining the trust and support of their state’s constituents. America is facing crisis after crisis and desperately needs a leader to lead them. Unfortunately for the nation, President Obama has been AWOL on that front and his approval rating, as well as the Democrat Party’s approval rating, has sunk into the abyss. Americans need solutions, not a continuous stream of blame and bickering.

Cagle: A Rocky Mountain Heist

On Tuesday, Citizens United’s right to distribute our newest documentary Rocky Mountain Heist in the state of Colorado was affirmed. The District Court for the District of Colorado had refused to treat our documentary as a standard media product. That decision had imposed on our First Amendment rights and would have required Citizens United to file burdensome campaign finance reports – something no other media entity is ever asked to do.

We filed an immediate appeal with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. On Tuesday the Court issued an emergency injunction in our favor. The 10th District Court of Colorado unanimously ruled 3-0, finding that we can indeed air Rocky Mountain Heist in the same manner as any other media entity. Put simply, our film and its message are at the core of political speech protected by the First Amendment. For far too long Colorado’s campaign finance laws have burdened some speakers while protecting others.

Rocky Mountain Heist sheds light on how the once-Red state of Colorado was transformed into a reliable Democrat stronghold. This documentary reveals the truth behind the “Gang of Four” – a secretive group of Leftist millionaires and billionaires who hijacked Colorado politics. The result was a restructuring of the once-reliable Red state. Now, homelessness is at an all-time high, marijuana is smoked in once family-friendly parks, gun control is rampant and the state’s energy industry is under constant assault.

Breitbart: True Winners of the Nobel Peace Prize

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize winners were announced to the world, and for once they got it right. Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, hailing from Pakistan and India respectively, were the very deserving winners for 2014.

Malala, who is the youngest recipient ever of the Nobel Peace Prize, has spent the entirety of her youth fighting for the rights of young girls in Pakistan to receive the same education as boys. Most notably, she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman two years ago upon her insistence that girls receive the same education as the boys in the town of Mingora, which, according to the Associated Press, is “the main town in Pakistan’s volatile Swat valley.”

Kailash Satyarthi, 60, was awarded for his life’s work as a kingpin for the movement to end child slavery. Satyarthi has stated, “Child slavery is a crime against humanity. Humanity itself is at stake here. A lot of work still remains but I will see the end of child labor in my lifetime.”

Cagle Post: An Incapable Government

With every new day there seems to be yet another disturbing headline citing Big Government failure. Recently it has been the CDC and the Ebola epidemic, the Secret Service, and the Commander in Chief and ISIS – to say the least, America is going through some trying times thanks in large part to our bloated government. The Obama Administration is completely overrun by arrogant incompetency, which as we are finding out daily is the most dangerous breed of incompetency there is. The Obama Administration continues to reassure the American public that everything is fine and the government will take care of it, but now even the most die-hard Obama lovers are learning that this is far from the truth.

The Ebola epidemic reached our shores last week via a traveler from Liberia and immediately Obama and the CDC jumped to reassure us that the threat was basically nonexistent, everything would be taken care of. However, not too long after, it was reported up to 100 people that came into contact with the man could be infected with the deadly virus. To put it plainly, it is very hard to believe anything that comes from the Obama Administration, whether it is a threat from Ebola, ISIS, Russia, you name it, in Obama Land the world is at complete peace and any potential threat to our Homeland continues to fall on deaf ears. To make matters worse, the White House is completely refusing to even consider temporary travel restrictions on countries battling the Ebola epidemic, to keep the virus from spreading to America yet again. This makes absolutely no sense, and is further proof that the Obama Administration cannot anticipate a major crisis.

Obama’s Secret Service is another example of extreme incompetency in this liberal administration. Not only did Director Julia Pierson’s Secret Service allow a man through to the East Wing of the White House before being stopped by an off-duty guard, but she allowed a gun carrying man with a checkered past stand beside the president in an elevator. Her incompetency was obvious to the public, and yet, prior to her resignation and after these two illicit missteps, Press Secretary Josh Earnest took to the podium and stated, “President Obama does have full confidence in Director Pierson and other members of the Secret Service to do their very important work.” The exact same day Earnest made this announcement, Pierson resigned. The sheer lack of communication within this administration is at this point unsurprising – but remains very unsettling.

Breitbart: Refocusing Our Values

This week, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus refocused the Republican Party ahead of the midterms.

In his speech, Chairman Priebus broadly went over the Conservative principles and ideals that are energizing Republican and many Independent voters. With the 2014 midterms just a month away, and as we reach out to our family, friends and neighbors ahead of election day, it is important that we remember this important fact: when conservative principles are being campaigned on, Republicans win on the ballot.

Chairman Priebus is tasked with advocating the party platform and broader concepts. This is a step in the right direction and, as a movement, we are grateful he took this important step in including core conservative principles in the national dialogue just a month ahead of this critical election. Now it is time for voters to elect conservative leaders who will advocate legislation which will result in turning these principles into law which will improve the lives of all Americans.

Conservative Leaders on RNC Chairman Reince Priebus' Speech: We Win With Conservative Principles and Solutions

October 2, 2014
Washington, D.C.

When conservative principles are on the ballot, they win. When the priorities of the American people-not Washington-are fought for, the country wins. This year, conservatives have the opportunity to have that debate. This morning, we were encouraged by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus' speech that laid out what the Republican Party stands for. It was a positive step and we thank him for elevating key conservative principles into the national dialogue ahead of this important election.

And while he laid out what Republicans are for, there is continued silence from too many in Congress about what Republicans will do if they are entrusted with majorities in the House and Senate. The choice cannot be a Washington controlled by Republicans or a Washington controlled by Democrats. Rather, the choice must be between whose principles do we want to follow: those that animate the country-freedom, prosperity, hard work, opportunity, fairness, strong families, and a secure country-or the principles that animate much of what we see in Washington today-cronyism, lawlessness, lack of accountability, and weakness.

Today, we call on conservative members of Congress and candidates to give Americans this choice and to boldly lay out the contrast between a conservative agenda for Congress-one that represents the priorities of the American people-and the liberal, big government agenda that too often only represents the priorities of Washington elites. Even with President Obama in the White House for two more years, conservatives in Congress can and must act on these key priorities--some of which do not even require the President's signature.

Elections are about the future and agendas are about principles and solutions. In his speech, Chairman Priebus broadly outlined the principles that are animating Republican voters across the country ahead of election day. Candidates and office holders must now stand ready with conservative solutions that are grounded in our principles and solve the problems that the American people care about. The following seven items are solutions animated by those principles. And while each of our organizations will work toward various elements of this agenda, as a conservative movement we must support leaders committed to:


• Balancing the budget in 10 years or less without raising taxes
• Fully repealing Obamacare, using congressional authority to halt and expose it, and starting over with real health care reform that respects patients and doctors
• Protecting the unborn, and ending abortions after 5 months of pregnancy
• Upholding the rule of law and Constitution by ending the lawlessness of the Obama Administration and rogue agencies like the IRS
• Safeguarding our freedoms by ending the assaults on our religious liberty
• Reducing the terror threat by securing the border
• Expanding American energy through innovation and the market, not government regulation and cronyism

Americans deserve a choice, not an echo. Each of these solutions is directly tied to a principle just prioritized as a national issue ahead of the election. And while our work continues, they are a down payment that will begin to restore, reform, and modernize government, and to once again make the American Dream a reality for future generations.

Cagle Post: A Tale Of Two Heads of State

On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly and vocalized many truths that President Obama simply refuses to. Netanyahu stated that “ISIS and Hamas are branches of the same poisonous tree. ISIS and Hamas share a fanatical creed, which they both seek to impose well beyond the territory under their control.” In addition, the Israeli Prime Minister pledged that the focus must not solely be eliminating ISIS but also not forgetting about Iran before they are able to create their own nuclear state.

Prime Minister Netanyahu also gravely warned against the consideration of allying with the Iran, which some leaders have hinted they would like to attempt. As reported by the New York Post, “Both the Islamic Republic [Iran] and the Islamic State plan to defeat democracies and replace them with an Islamic order, he noted, even comparing them to Nazis, who ‘believed in a master race,’ just as ‘the militant Islamists believe in a master faith.’” Siding with Iran is siding with the enemy.

The contrasts between the way Benjamin Netanyahu and Barack Obama deal with terrorist threats are shocking. Obama has simply refused to believe that the United States is at war with radical Islam and he has placed our nation on its weakest footing to-date. InSunday night’s much-maligned interview with 60 Minutes, Obama squarely placed the blame for the underestimation of ISIS’ power on the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper stating, “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.” The amount of times this president has used the “it’s not my fault it’s theirs” card is frightening. Unlike Benjamin Netanyahu, Obama is simply more focused on politics rather than admitting mistakes and finding sound solutions.

Breitbart: Eric Holder Is Gone, Now Is The Time To Clean Up The Mess

Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation comes as no surprise and brings to an end one of the most polarizing tenures of an Attorney General in the Department of Justice’s history. Although Eric Holder should have been fired long ago, having an Attorney General whose sole mission was to protect President Obama from scandal after scandal out of office is always welcome news.

But why is Eric Holder leaving now? Similar to so many of Eric Holder’s decisions, this one was purely political in nature. He is hoping that his successor will be able to get through the process during the lame duck session following the midterm elections. It is becoming increasingly likely that Democrats will lose the majority in the U.S. Senate, making it a tough hill to climb for a controversial Obama Attorney General pick to get confirmed in a Republican controlled Senate. It is fitting that even when resigning Holder sides with politics over ethics.

Eric Holder’s record was, in one word, terrible. Not only was he the only sitting Cabinet member to have been held in contempt of Congress because of the Fast and Furious scandal, but Holder also named Fox News Reporter James Rosen as a co-conspirator for leaks from the Department of Justice with no proof.

Cagle Post: The Dysfunctional U.N.

Today, President Obama will chair a United Nations Security Council meeting in New York City. In an effort to show that the U.N. is actually doing something to combat terror, The New York Times is reporting that Obama will try to “adopt a binding resolution that would compel all countries to put in place domestic laws to prosecute those who travel abroad to join terrorist organizations and those who help them, including by raising funds.” The resolution itself is unsurprisingly not very threatening or imposing.

Far too often President Obama has relied on the U.N. where real American leadership is needed. Even though America and our Arab allies are dropping bombs in Syria and Iraq right now to go after the ISIS threat it seems to me that this meeting of U.N. leaders is a way of taking other action through diplomacy and suggestion rather than actually doing anything of substance. Simply, this resolution being proposed is a paper tiger that is not binding.

It is one thing to make suggestions as to what should be done if a citizen of your country has pledged to join a terrorist organization, and something entirely different to lay out an actual plan of action against these said-traitors. While this U.N. effort may seem questionable, there are many world leaders who are simply choosing not to be a part of Obama’s initiative and instead focus on…global warming.
