Election 2010

Tea Party Turns Five

February 27, 2014

From September 2008 to February 2009 nearly $1.6 trillion America didn’t have had been spent by our government: TARP to bailout Wall Street ($700 billion), plus the auto bailouts ($80 billion), plus the Stimulus to bailout Democrat constituencies ($787 billion).  When would it stop?  Who would end up paying for it?  Anyone paying attention was [...]

Rush Limbaugh’s Great Interview on Greta

July 31, 2013

Rush Limbaugh generally doesn’t like TV interviews, but seems to always make an exception for Fox’s Greta Van Susteren once in a while.  Yesterday, Rush sat down for over an hour for an interview, which essentially summarized what he’s been saying on the radio since February.  Here’s most of the interview on video. For those [...]

Tea Party on Capitol Hill was Ready to Rumble!

June 4, 2013

It’s been nearly 240 years since that original “incident with the Tea” in December 1773, which was decades later called the Boston Tea Party.  Their modern-day namesake were being improperly targeted by the IRS because of their political beliefs and today had a chance to have their voices heard.  It was marvelous! Here’s the much [...]

Labor May Be Turning on Obamacare

May 26, 2013

If there’s one thing I’ve learned since the Obama Nation took charge, it is to always watch what the other hand is doing.  Before the Benghazi-IRS-AP scandals, it seemed like Obama was constantly moving from one issue to another and back again:  gun control to amnesty to drones to Gitmo to gun control to amnesty [...]

Angelo Codevilla Takes on the Republican Establishment

February 23, 2013

On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show, Mark read from an article by Angelo Codevilla during most of his first hour.  The article’s title,”As Country Club Republicans Link Up with the Democratic Ruling Class, Millions of Voters are Orphaned,” only hits the surface of the message Codevilla is trying to convey.  For those who don’t remember, Codevilla [...]

The Tea Party Purge Begins

December 4, 2012

House Speaker John Boehner is overseeing the House Steering Committee’s removal of a number conservative Tea Party Republicans from their committee posts in what clearly can be called a “purge” of fiscal conservatives from those positions of power.  One Congressman, Justin Amash, voted 95% of the time with the leadership and still lost his position [...]

Ryan’s 2012 Election Prediction

November 5, 2012

It’s almost go-time America!  Tomorrow, there’s a major fork in the road staring at us all.  Neither direction fully solves our problems, but one leads us to the abyss a lot faster.  A President Romney will try to take on the big issues and maybe get us pushed in the right direction.  A re-elected President [...]

Wisconsin Judge Tosses Walker’s Union Law

September 16, 2012

On Friday, Dane County circuit court Judge Juan Colas threw out just about all of the famous collective bargaining law passed by Governor Scott Walker and the state legislature, which modeled to other cash-strapped states a politically successful way to deal with unsustainable public employee union costs moving forward. Judge Colas wrote that the law [...]

Data: The Road to Recovery Begins with Electing Republicans

July 9, 2012

New unemployment data analysis indicates that all 17 states which elected a Republican governor in 2010 have seen a drop in that state’s unemployment rate, while all eight states who elected Democrats saw slower drops or actual increases in the unemployment rate since January 2011.  These GOP governors have had to make hard (and often [...]

Two (Possibly Nonsensical) Observations on SCOTUS and Romney

April 4, 2012

Two things dawned on me that I think no one’s really talking about (possibly because they may make little sense): First, what if Obama did get a tip from someone about how the Supreme Court is going to rule on Obamacare?  His actions of late indicate that he knows it doesn’t look good.  But, what [...]

Rick Santelli’s Historic “Rant”

February 19, 2012

Remember Rick Santelli’s historic CNBC “rant” which happened three years ago today?  Who knew what a firestorm he would set off, including the inspiration of a name for a soon-to-be organized movement which was already ready to roll!  Here’s the “rant”: The rest is history!

Tim Scott — A House Republican with a Spine

July 7, 2011

Despite the Administration’s insistence that Section 4 of the 14th Amendment says they can forgo Congress on raising the debt limit, they obviously can’t.  All one needs to do is read the Amendment yourself, noticing that pesky Section 5, which clearly states: The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of [...]

Jon Huntsman Announces 2012 Bid

June 22, 2011

Former Utah Governor and Obama Administration ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman, announced his intentions to run for President yesterday.  Using the Statue of Liberty as his prop background, Huntsman invoked Reagan and contrasted his views with those of his former boss, President Obama. However, all I needed to read was this bit from his speech: [...]

Tea Party to Support GOP Candidate

June 5, 2011

Since the Tea Party is an amorphous but dedicated group of deficit and debt reduction hawks bent on reducing the size of government in our daily lives, they are a political movement to be reckoned with — they are conservative, but not Republican. 2010 does not happen without them and they continue to be where [...]

Boehner’s Failure on the Budget

March 15, 2011

The words “hero” and “courage” are sometimes overused nowadays.  Neither of these words will refer to House Speaker John Boehner in this post.  The continuing resolution passed by the House 271-158 keeps the federal government running for another three weeks cutting $6 billion from the budget (I’d love to know from where!) over that time [...]

Wisconsin Senate Repubicans Finally Pass the Bill

March 10, 2011

Last night, Wisconsin Senate Republicans cleverly severed then passed that controversial budget-repair bill.  Predictably, the unions aren’t happy, especially since the protesters were asked to leave the Capitol!  That’s the problem when restless kiddies don’t have adult supervision. The Senate Dems on hiatus were also upset.  One Senator made this point: “It’s a charade. It’s [...]

Obama: Tea Party has a “Subterranean” Racist Agenda

March 3, 2011

Kenneth T. Walsh has a new book coming out which looks at the presidents and blacks in the White House.  In it he had an interview with President Obama in May of 2010, where Obama admitted agreeing with the idea that the Tea Party wanted to “take back” America partially because they were afraid of [...]

Paul Ryan on the “Fleebagger” Phenomenon

February 25, 2011

If you haven’t heard, the Wisconsin and Indiana legislators who have fled their respective states so that a vote on the budget with which they disagree have become known as “fleebaggers” by the right-wing blogosphere.  While calling them the “Fugitive 14″ in Wisconsin is more p.c., I like the obvious play on the Left’s “teabagger” [...]

Ditch Daniels?

February 23, 2011

Fresh off of an excellent CPAC speech just a few weeks ago, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels seems to have caved on Indiana’s right-to-work legislation at perhaps the worst possible time.  Unfortunately, in heated times nuance often gets lost.  Politicians need to understand that, especially those who have 2012 Presidential buzz surrounding them. Daniels doesn’t like [...]

Unions Strike Back, Dems Take Sides

February 22, 2011

We all know that through their proxies in the Democrat Party the public employee unions have halted legislative action in Wisconsin.  But now Indiana can’t move similar legislation either!  In both cases, a specific number of Democrat legislators have literally fled their respective states to those controlled by Democrat governors to postpone their inevitable fetching [...]

Where are all the Dems in Madison?

February 17, 2011

As the union crisis grows in Madison, Wisconsin, another development bears watching:  all 14 Democrats in the Wisconsin state legislature have left the state in a procedural move to prevent the public employee benefit reform vote from even taking place!  Some of the more obnoxious protesters and their supporters have compared Governor Walker to Hosni [...]

Union Showdown in Wisconsin

February 17, 2011

Like many other states around the nation getting serious about their long-term fiscal solvency, Wisconsin is on the verge of making profound changes to their state and municipal worker health and pension benefit system.  Like New Jersey, the teacher unions are getting the most attention because they can cause the most immediate and widespread disruption.  [...]

Rhode Island Forecast: Economic Death Spiral

February 9, 2011

Ever since Rhode Island elected big spending former RINO union-shill Lincoln Chafee governor last November, I personally believed that this signaled my home state’s fast track to fiscal oblivion.  As it turns out, I am not alone.  Using nearly any measure of economic metrics, RI is at or near the bottom and is getting worse.  [...]

Mubarak Can Kill the Internet, So Why Can’t Obama?

January 31, 2011

Talk about a complete lack of political tact!  Last year Joe Lieberman introduced legislation (co-sponsored by the very special Senator Susan Collins from Maine) which would give the President “broad emergency powers” to disable the Internet in case of a “national emergency”.  You know, just like the powers Dictator President Mubarak has been exercising in [...]

Michele Bachmann’s Tea Party Response

January 26, 2011

Last night we heard a 62-minute campaign speech Obama gave to the nation saying little more than expressing mere platitudes, proclaiming empty promises, while hearkening back to Sputnik and Thomas Edison for some reason. As has been the tradition, the party out of the White House gives a response to the State of the Union [...]

House Passes Obama Care Repeal

January 19, 2011

The vote was 245 to 189 — every Republican and three Democrats just voted to repeal the Obama Care monstrosity.  In contrast, the vote to pass Obama Care last year was 219-212, with no Republican support and with over thirty Democrats voting against its passage. Given Harry Reid’s dominion over the Senate and with Obama [...]

Here we are only 18 days into January, and we already have a Red-state Democrat announcing that he is not seeking re-election — two years before the actual election.  Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND) has become the second Democrat Senator from North Dakota in just over a year to announce his retirement.  Last January, Sen. Byron [...]

Repeal Vote Back on Track

January 18, 2011

Out of deference to the victims of the Tuscon Massacre, House Republicans postponed legislative business until today, with full intentions of moving forward on repealing the “job-killing” Obama Care law.  The Dems were, of course, hoping that in the spirit of lowering the rhetoric that House Republicans would wimp out on all controversial legislation until [...]

Obama Looking to Focus on Education

January 15, 2011

Well, after the “shellacking” his party took in the polls nationwide last November, it seems President Obama finally understands what the American people really wanted him to focus on:  the economy education reform! The Republican “Pledge” made no mention of education reform because to the American people it’s all about jobs, cutting spending and our [...]
