Romney Opposed to Defunding Obamacare

August 7, 2013

Speaking to a large group of GOP fundraisers in New Hampshire yesterday, former Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney sent the message that the GOP should give up any fight to defund Obamacare that would risk a government shutdown. In Romney’s words: I badly want Obamacare to go away, and stripping it of funds has appeal.  [...]

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 [...]

Creepy Government “Behavioral Insights Team” to Study Us

July 30, 2013

Back when Glenn Beck was on Fox, he’d sometimes devote entire shows to radicals who Obama has surrounded himself with.  The most famous of these revolved around communist Van Jones.  Another common target was Cass Sunstein, the former Director of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the OMB, who co-wrote a book called [...]

Paul Ryan Falls Into Immigration Trap

July 28, 2013

The Senate’s immigration bill is a nightmare, and the House GOP could stop it dead.  But they won’t because the leadership sucks. Case in point:  former Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan promised piecemeal action in small steps on immigration by October.  On the surface, that’s already considerably more responsible than the Senate’s “comprehensive” morass.  However, [...]

Obama: Fueling the Racial Flames

July 21, 2013

Friday, while few were paying attention, President Obama made these remarks regarding the George Zimmerman verdict.  Here’s a short clip: Any observer of this administration can see, clearly by now, that the Justice Department and now Obama himself, are involved in a major media head fake, stoking the flames of discontent regarding this duly adjudicated [...]

GOP Trying to Delay Individual Mandate

July 10, 2013

The Senate and House GOP have decided to snip at the edges of Obamacare, taking the populist political posture of trying to delay the individual mandate, undoubtedly thinking it will help get votes next year. Their logic is that since large businesses don’t have to provide health care for another year, individuals should not be [...]

Fiat Enforcement of Obamacare Stirring Some Opposition

July 9, 2013

The Obama Administration’s announcement last week that it will arbitrarily push back certain aspects of Obamacare until after the 2014 Election is actually getting some blow back from the GOP, surprisingly, beyond their seemingly obligatory and now tiresome repeal votes. The GOP is saying that it’s not fair to delay certain aspects of the law’s [...]

Coincidentally, One Major Obamacare Insurance Mandate Delayed Until After 2014 Election

July 2, 2013

Breaking news out of Foggy Bottom’s Treasury Department:  the administration will delay a mandate on large employers to provide health insurance until 2015. It’s likely that this move is not just about a lack of preparedness (which I can totally believe), but also to dull the political and economic impact of the impending Obamacare train [...]

NObamacare for the NFL

June 29, 2013

Obamacare has a problem: if 2.7 million 18-35 year old males don’t sign up for those state exchanges, the whole thing is going to implode pretty quickly.  In their wisdom, our central planners figure that healthy young people’s high rates can pay for sickly old people.  If there’s not enough young people paying into the [...]

Immigration Bill Passes Senate; Here’s a List of GOP Senators to Primary

June 27, 2013

With cloture invoked on Monday, the final version of the Senate’s crap sandwich “comprehensive immigration reform” bill was voted on today and passed 68-32. Below is a list of Republicans who voted for the bill who MUST have a primary challenge in their next election. Why? This bill sucks, and everyone involved should already know [...]

Cruz and Sessions: Read the Bill!

June 24, 2013

This week the Senate will pass an absolutely terrible comprehensive immigration bill which will likely be more harmful to the economy than to the Republican Party (if that’s possible), as well as not solving the problem. “Comprehensive” bills just mean “filled with junk that could never pass on its own.”  The other problem with “comprehensive” [...]

McCaughey: Obamacare is About Funding Democrats

June 20, 2013

Betsy McCaughey, one of the few people on Earth who’s actually read the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (aka Obamacare), wrote this recent article which I believe is worth adding to the echo chamber. Her basic premise is that Obamacare is not about health care (even a synopsis of the bill tells you that), [...]

NSA Surveillance Programs Wreak Havoc on Liberty

June 7, 2013

The National Security Agency (NSA) has been collecting data from (at the every least) Verizon to data-mine billions of phone calls in order to prevent future terror attacks — and they’ve been doing it for seven years (BTW if that’s the case, then they really dropped the ball in Boston, didn’t they)! It’s not just [...]

Not Sure About This Marco Rubio Fellow Anymore

June 1, 2013

The centripetal force of the statist-leaning ruling class in DC is enormous.  It gobbles up new, bright-eyed members all the time and spits out more of the same junk. Unfortunately, a once bright shining star in my eyes, Marco Rubio, has been caught up in it.  Nothing proves that more than how he’s become a [...]

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 [...]

ADHD: A Tale of Two Countries

May 17, 2013

Turns out that in France they don’t view ADHD the same way that we in America do.  This fascinating article explains why the French don’t really need to use pills to control their kids.  As someone who has been trained to deal with ADHD children, the article’s findings make a lot of sense. Here in [...]

Brazen: New IRS Obamacare Director Oversaw IRS Malfeasance

May 17, 2013

In the face of a growing IRS scandal related to the political targeting of conservative groups in the run-up to the 2012 Election, Sarah Hall Ingram, the woman who oversaw all that malfeasance as it was happening, is getting a new job — running the IRS wing of Obamacare. Ingram should be dragged in front [...]

Steyn: Collapsing the American Skull

April 28, 2013

Mark Steyn’s NRO article this week is classic, cutting Steyn.  In it he takes on our lack of immigrant assimilation while tying in Dr. “Baby-Killer” Kermit Gosnell’s abortion crimes.  Here are two excerpts: Until the 1960s, it was assumed by all sovereign states that they had the right to choose which non-nationals were admitted within [...]

Congress: Obamacare and Airport Delays for Thee, but Not for Me

April 25, 2013

One really doesn’t know what to believe from our elected officials nowadays, but rest assured that any benefit they can endow on themselves will be baked into any cake.  That being said, a story hit the Internets this week that apparently high-level confidential talks have been going on for months about exempting members of Congress [...]

Obamacare: Not Third World, I Suppose

March 22, 2013

I love the kinds of things that sometimes come from government functionaries.  Take this gem from the man in charge of technology in those exciting new hopenchange Obamacare exchanges: “The time for debating about the size of text on the screen or the color or is it a world-class user experience, that’s what we used [...]

Paul Ryan’s Latest Budget Puts GOP on Offense

March 12, 2013

With President Obama reeling after the Sequester dud, Paul Ryan unveiled the House GOP’s budget proposal.  Here’s a short clip: This is where Paul Ryan is at his best — crunching numbers and articulating a more sensible path to a financially solvent future for our nation.  On top of that, this budget proposal eliminates Obamacare, [...]

Listen to Dr. Benjamin Carson

February 9, 2013

This week at the National Prayer Breakfast Dr. Benjamin Carson, standing right next to the President, hit the room with this attack on political correctness. Here’s the full speech, where Carson hits the national debt, taxation, ObamaCare, and more all in the presence of Dear Leader.  It’s about a half-hour, but those of you stuck [...]

Obama’s Second Inaugural Address

January 21, 2013

President Obama gave his second inaugural address today — I only saw the last ten minutes of it.  Due to all the missed school days from Superstorm Sandy, I had work today. Ten minutes was enough.  Soaring, airy rhetoric, to be sure.  Delivered well, but the same ol’ horse manure.  In the mere ten minutes [...]

Catholic Civil Disobedience

November 15, 2012

Now that ObamaCare is going to be coming into effect, the Catholic Church has a tough decision to make in regards to their hospitals.  Because ObamaCare mandates that health plans contain contraceptive coverage and the Catholic Church considers contraception to be morally wrong, the Church is in a tough spot.  The Catholic Church represents 12.5% [...]

Nevada Small Business Owner Fires 22 Employees As a Result of Obama Election

November 8, 2012

A Nevada man fired 22 employees as a result of Obama being re-elected.  His reason is that the upcoming ObamaCare regulations will dramatically increase the cost of his business, and therefore he has to act proactively now that ObamaCare’s implementation is a sure thing. I’m willing to bet that we will be seeing a lot [...]

RNC Speeches Day 3: Smitten by Mitt

August 31, 2012

The final evening of speeches at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa capped a solid three days of a pro-American, pro-free market, pro-opportunity political festival.  Hurricane Isaac forced the convention into a three-day affair, but in truth packing all the speeches and events into three days instead of four allowed the message to come [...]

RNC Speeches Day 2: Rice and Ryan Rock the Hall

August 30, 2012

After many solid speeches throughout Day 1 of the convention, I was interested to see if the message would shift on Day 2.  It did.  Yesterday the was time to take it directly to Obama (finally).  The specific criticism missing from Chris Christie’s speech was on full display in prime time last night! The warm-up [...]

RNC Speeches Day 1: Ann and Christie Have Arrived

August 29, 2012

After yesterday afternoon’s debacle on the RNC floor, I was feeling much less enthusiastic going into last night’s prime time RNC speeches.  I started watching around 7:30pm EDT only to see Reince Priebus, Establishment tool, trying to excite the crowd.  It wasn’t working beyond the token uttering of “Mitt Romney” which consistently elicited obligatory applause [...]

Romney/Ryan Trying to Redefine Medicare Debate

August 15, 2012

Medicare is a Democrat issue — just say the word and images are conjured up of benign Democrats helping grandma out of her chair, and Republicans pushing her off a cliff.  However, that may be changing.  In 2009, President Obama reinforced the idea that Medicare cuts were needed as part of his health care plan, [...]

The Contraception Mandate Begins

August 1, 2012

Today, August 1 is the day when Obamacare’s contraception mandate goes into effect.  This mandate doesn’t give “women control of their health care” as HHS Secretary Sibelius said; women have had that ability regarding birth control since 1965.  Instead, this mandate essentially forces religious institutions to unreasonably violate their consciences in providing birth control coverage [...]
