The 1980s Called. They Want their Video Games Back.

September 8, 2014

I know I haven’t posted in a while and that my last post said something about avoiding silly season, but after I saw today’s news about Russian planes practicing cruise missile attacks on the United States, I remembered Obama’s ignorant and arrogant taunt about the 80s wanting their foreign policy back.  Rather than wondering about [...]

Republican Buzz — Adjusting the Electoral College

January 19, 2013

While I am a defender of the Electoral College, there is no denying that most Americans don’t like the system.   However, alternative national popular vote schemes are unconstitutional on many levels.  Seizing on this, some Republican-dominated state legislatures and governors in blue states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, among others, want to alter the EC [...]

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% [...]

Jeff Kent’s Hilarious Goodbye on Survivor

November 8, 2012

Former major league baseball player Jeff Kent was voted out on last night’s episode of Survivor.  I’ve never been a fan of they guy, and let’s face it, few people are.  But I’ll give him mad props for what he said after the tribe spoke. Well played, sir.  Now, I’m a fan.

Spielberg’s Lincoln Film Set for November

September 15, 2012

Based on the hugely popular book, Team of Rivals, Steven Spielberg’s upcoming film Lincoln had its first full-length trailer released this week: Any time a movie’s lead role is played by Daniel Day Lewis, there’s tons of potential. I read Team of Rivals and thought it was very good, especially the parts about Lincoln and [...]

The Insidious Redefining of Judicial Activism

April 3, 2012

Barack Obama lashed out at the supreme court yesterday (based on what some speculate is a leak from his former Solicitor General, Elena Kagan, that the court has found some or all of the bill unconstitutional), stating that the overturning of ObamaCare would be an act of judicial activism.  Now, either Obama does not understand judicial activism, or [...]

American Crossroads: The “Greatness” of Barack Obama

December 23, 2011

Great ad from American Crossroads mocking Barack Obama: Positive and serious ads will be necessary too, but next year’s GOP nominee should incorporate ridicule into next year’s campaign. Dear Leader is incredibly thin-skinned and won’t react well when he and his record are mocked.  Even John McCain polled well in 2008 when his campaign ridiculed [...]

Barack Obama and the Not So Golden Snitch

September 14, 2011

With average unemployment rate nearly four points higher than it was under George W. Bush, sluggish economic growth, and a soaring national debt, people just don’t seem to love Barack Obama as much as they used to.  You might even say the American people have had enough of him.  Last night, the Republicans won a [...]

T-Paw Runs Empty Podium Ad

August 9, 2011

Before President Downgrade delivered his latest uninspiring speech yesterday, he played a little joke on the plebs.  You see, he told the networks he would speak at one o’clock, but didn’t actually show up until a little before two.  During that hour, many of the cable channels ran images of the Empty Suit’s empty podium.  [...]

A Line In the Sand

July 18, 2011

The GOP is showing signs of caving into the Obama Administration, or even worse, passing the buck and giving full debt limit authority to the President.  What is at stake here is not the matter of default (which is a myth – we’ve reached the debt ceiling four times before, where it remained for several [...]

Lech Walesa Snubs Obama

May 27, 2011

I never thought I’d see the day when Lech Walesa couldn’t find time to meet with the President of the United States.  Then again, I never thought I’d see the day when we had a President like Barack Obama.  Truth be told, Walesa refusal to meet Obama is a little disappointing because the two men [...]

The Coming Economic Decline

May 16, 2011

America is headed for an economic decline.  What’s that, you say?  We are already in the midst economic slump?  While that seems to be true, the economic data points to the fact that the U.S. economy declined in 2008-2009, remained stagnant throughout most of 2010, and showed some light growth in 2011.  Yet there are [...]

Boehner Pulls a Fast One on His Supporters

April 12, 2011

When the news fist broke that Obama and the Republicans reached a deal to avoid a government shutdown, it wasn’t that exciting.  After all, $38 billion in cuts is insignificant when measured against the massive spending increases our country endured under Presidents Obama and Bush and our federal deficit of well north of a trillion.  [...]

GOP Votes to Defund Obama’s Czars

February 18, 2011

Obama has been prolific in appointing non-cabinet overseers to run various portions of the executive branch, known as Czars.  The Czars have always been a point of contention due to the fact that, unlike Cabinet members, they are not required to appear before the Senate for oversight.  Even the late former Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) [...]

Obama’s 2012 Budget Sham

February 14, 2011

Anyone who’s ever read the George Orwell novel 1984 knows of the concept of Newspeak, a way of using rhetorical tricks to convince people that a lie is true.  Obama has released his 2012 budget proposal, and it is a classic example of Newspeak.  In it, Obama claims to be “cutting the deficit”.  The budget [...]

SOTU Anti-Bounce?

January 27, 2011

It remains to be seen where the numbers will play out, but thus far they are not looking good for Barack Obama.  As of Tuesday night, before the State of the Union, Obama had a 52% approval, 47% disapproval rating, with an approval index of -5.  Today, which incorporates 33% of respondents post-SOTU and 66% [...]

State of the Union Not Playing Well With America

January 26, 2011

First, let me say that snap polls are somewhat useless.  They are un-scientific and do not have good enough samples to accurately portray anything.  Second, they are usually put out only by unreliable polling outfits (SeeBS and CNN, for example).  What is more important and meaningful will be polls out later this week from reputable [...]

Obama’s Spending Freeze is the Same Old, Same Old…

January 25, 2011

In tonight’s State of the Union Address (join us tonight beginning at 8:45 PM EST for liveblog coverage), President Obama is expected to propose a five-year spending freeze for non-defense discretionary spending.  Such a freeze, while a good baby step, will do nothing to reign in the spending spree that Congress has been on since [...]

This Isn’t 1996

January 25, 2011

One of the narratives in the State-run media is that 2012 will be like 1996.  After losing both houses of Congress in 1994, Clinton tacked to the center, and went on to win re-election.  The State-run media contends that this scenario will play out with Barack Obama.  However, an article over at the blog Baseball [...]

Our Classy President Tries to Pretend He’s All That

June 8, 2010

Yesterday, Obama attempted to be hip and cool and tried to show some emotional investment in the BP oil crisis that is rapidly becoming Obama’s Katrina by showing BP that he meant business: I was down there a month ago, before most of these talkin’ heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago [...]

The Coming Depression

May 13, 2010

Longtime readers of Axis of Right know that I’ve contended for a while that the worst of the economic crisis of 2008-2009 is ahead of us, not behind us.  The massive amount of money infused into our economic system over the last two years, the coming insolvency of entitlements such as Medicare and Social Security [...]

The State-Run Media’s Spin on the Gulf Oil Spill

May 8, 2010

The use of a state-run media to prop up the State* has always been a hallmark of Marxist regimes.  The Obama administration regime is only the latest in a long line of those who use the state to spread lies and falsehoods that are so obviously contradictions of the truth that they become almost laughable, [...]

Obama Tells the World He Won’t Use Nukes

April 6, 2010

This is just maddening.  Most of Obama’s policies to this point have been damaging to our nation.  Both the Stimulus and ObamaCare, for instance, will have a long-term disastrous effect on our national debt and our economy.  His foreign policy has propped up our enemies and insulted our allies.  In his latest assault on our [...]
