Mike Ditka (and Me) on the Redskins Debate

August 20, 2014

The Washington Redskins name controversy is resurfacing as the 2014 NFL season draws closer.  The politically correct cultural elites are trying to force their views onto a generally disinterested public to further turn the mostly neutered  NFL (No Fun League) political.  For libs everything is political — they can’t help it, it’s just who they [...]

The Cochran/McDaniel Run-off Fiasco

June 26, 2014

This past Tuesday, Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran defeated insurgent Tea Party-favorite Chris McDaniel in a run-off election by about 6,700 votes.  While McDaniel defeated Cochran in the popular vote after the first primary election, McDaniel failed to get the 50% needed to avoid a run-off. McDaniel is obviously upset and is threatening legal action, which [...]

Trouble at the Border

June 10, 2014

How in the hell do tens of thousands of unaccompanied children end up swamping the Mexican border, creating an impending humanitarian crisis? As far as I can tell, there are two reasons:  1) negligent border security efforts and 2) the impression in many Central American countries that an amnesty is coming. So, the Obama Nation [...]

Reid’s Interest in Those “Domestic Terrorists”

April 19, 2014

After the recent Bundy Ranch fiasco finally died down, Nevada Senator Harry Reid jumped into the mix, calling those who descended to the ranch to support Clive Bundy “domestic terrorists.”  While this kind of hyperbole is completely uncalled for (especially for the Senate Majority Leader) and diminishes the meaning of “terrorist,” Reid doubled down on [...]

Roe Plus 41

January 22, 2014

Ghastly math:  Roe v. Wade + 41 years = 55 million deaths. On this dark anniversary, tens of thousands braved Arctic cold and snow for the fortieth “March For Life” in Washington DC.  I was actually at one of these back in 1998.  It was inspiring to see so many others from all parts of [...]

Anti-War Crowd Rather Subdued on Syria

August 31, 2013

In politics and life, I respect consistency.  For instance, Dennis Kucinich and I have starkly different philosophies, but at least he’s consistent in his views, especially about war. So President Obama, a Progressive Liberal Democrat is on the verge of going to war with Syria: without a broad international coalition of any kind possibly without [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

George Zimmerman Acquitted

July 14, 2013

Last evening the six-member jury deliberating the guilt of George Zimmerman found him not guilty, acquitting him for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.  The Blaze has great coverage of the last 24 hours, as this story keeps developing. Having been on a million juries (that’s what I get for voting in every election!), [...]

Snowden Is Not a Hero

June 24, 2013

There has been a lot said in the past two days about Edward Snowden, the individual responsible for leaking the alleged* NSA spying program known as PRISM.  Snowden has been lauded as a hero by many from both sides of the aisle and outside of Washington.  Yet assuming that everything that Snowden says is 100% [...]

The Cost of Big Government Higher than Dollars and Cents

June 19, 2013

The Wall Street Journal ran a piece today by Harvard history professor Niall Ferguson called “The Regulated States of America” which looks into the dollars and cents behind the cost of our massive regulatory state and how it impacts our culture. According to the numbers, the Administrative State (our unelected Fourth Branch of government) costs [...]

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 [...]

Stockman — Our Great Deformation Continues

April 1, 2013

I wish this were an April Fools joke, but it’s not.  Former Reagan economic guru David Stockman is warning that the Fed’s money-pumping is creating an unsustainable stock bubble which will inevitably come crashing down in the next few years.  Worse, Stockman argues that the “Too Big to Fail” corporatist culture created over the last [...]

“Fabian” Socialism

March 28, 2013

Since 2009, I’ve heard the term “Fabian socialist” thrown around now and then, but wasn’t too sure who they were.  What makes them “fabian” and not regular socialists? Well, I looked it up.  In the Second Punic War (218-202 BC), there was a Roman general (and brief dictator) named Quintus Fabius Maximus, commonly known as [...]

Woodward in the Crosshairs

February 28, 2013

Mainstream Media icon Bob Woodward has officially fallen from grace mainly because of this exchange earlier this week: How dare he criticize Dear Leader’s “certain kind of madness!”  What’s worse, Woodward had the audacity to publicly admit that he felt threatened by the Administration’s response to that exchange. Sadly, the Obama Nation must now destroy [...]

Today around noon President Obama will be sworn in for a second term as our President, while Joe Biden already took his oath this morning.  Tomorrow, the big party takes place — constitutionally, the official swearing in must take place on January 20, but given that today is Sunday the public ceremony has been moved [...]

Secession Advocates Get Their Response From DC

January 13, 2013

I hope that all those secession petitions sent to the White House are merely symbolic, and that the people involved don’t think seriously about it.  If so, they are just as bad as the statists who want to ignore the constitutional process for their own ends.  In a re-airing of a 150-year-old settled argument, the [...]

Biden: Some Gun Control By Executive Fiat

January 9, 2013

Vice President Joe Biden made it clear today that the President has many options in the upcoming gun control debate saying, “There are executive orders, executive action that can be taken.”  He went on to imply that action is key to getting things done: “it’s critically important that we act.”  The word “action” struck me, [...]

On the Eve of 2013, Two Contrasting Views of America

December 31, 2012

While going through my routine Internet rounds this morning I needed only go to Hot Air to find two articles which so perfectly contrast the main philosophical struggle in America today. Here’s a New York Times editorial simply titled “Let’s Give Up on the Constitution.”  It is modern progressivism in its essence. This article contains [...]

Obama: School Shooting Means Cave on Fiscal Cliff

December 19, 2012

Just when you thought things couldn’t get more shallow in Washington, President Obama conjures up the Sandy Hook Massacre to pressure Republicans to budge on the fiscal cliff negotiations.  Really?  Watch: I mean, who goes there, right?  Who actually goes there not even a week after the shooting, while children are still being buried, connecting [...]

It Wasn’t Michgan’s Right-to-Work Bill that Struck Steven Crowder

December 11, 2012

We all love Steven Crowder’s sass and sarcasm, but reporting outside the Lansing, Michigan, union protest of a new right-to-work bill which passed the legislature today, this happened: We hope Steven and everyone else in those tents are OK. Quotes from top Michigan Democrat legislators threatening that “there will be blood, there will be consequences” [...]

Dueling “Surprises” Fall Flat

October 25, 2012

Obama shill and liberal hack Gloria Allred has done her best to dig up dirt on Mitt Romney in the run-up to November 6. Unfortunately for her a few things got in the way:  1) Mitt Romney’s squeaky clean, and 2) the apparent dirt is an 18-year-old charge which first appeared in Mitt’s 1994 run [...]

It’s Getting Late in October… Get Ready for a Surprise!

October 20, 2012

The October Surprise:  sudden game-changing event or charge which occurs so close to an election that the targeted candidate doesn’t have time to respond, and therefore changes the election’s dynamic within days of voting.  It’s a real d-bag move, no matter which side is doing it. Today is October 20, seventeen days left until we [...]

Did You Get Your Obamaphone Yet?

September 27, 2012

This SEIU-sponsored anti-Romney rally in Cleveland yesterday was very…um… telling and I’m sure by adding this piece to the echo chamber it’ll be considered the height of racism to many of our friends in the race business.  But rest assured, there are no “code words” and “dog whistles” here.  Enjoy: Alas!  Did you pick up [...]

New Austerity Riots Ravage Greece and Spain

The latest round of austerity measures in Greece sparked an outburst of violence over the last 48 hours: Similar-type measures in Spain produced a similar reaction: Of course, international markets weren’t too pleased at these developments either.

Occupy Wall Street Celebrates First Anniversary … with 181 Arrested

September 18, 2012

The useful idiots in the Occupy “movement” were back and in predictable form as the rubes descended on Wall Street once again to mark the first anniversary of their spectacle.  Surprisingly, only 181 were arrested by the NYPD as of last night on a variety of charges, including disorderly conduct.  A mob is still a [...]

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 [...]

Chicago Teachers Strike Making Union Look Terrible

September 10, 2012

This morning Chicago’s teachers union decided to go on strike.  The sticking points which led to today’s action revolve around changes to teacher evaluation, health insurance, and job security, even though the teachers would still get a 16% raise over the course of the contract. That’s better than I’m getting and I also have to [...]

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 [...]
