Obama’s Business Blackmail
Business leaders better kowtow to the Obama administration or else his bureaucrats will cut off the company’s ability to do business with the government. Since the government controls so many industries now, through regulations, threats and other means, these actions can destroy private companies. The Wall Street Journal’s Alicia Mundy reports that business leaders are anxious over this development: A government attempt to oust a | Read More »
New anti-Jewish flotilla planning to run Gaza blockade.
Sorry, I’m not going to pretend that I don’t recognize the essentially anti-Semitic nature of the anti-Israel movement. And neither am I going to pretend that I take said movement’s agitprop seriously, either. The flotilla that got intercepted last year while trying to break the Gaza blockade was providing materials to build bunkers and fortifications for Hamas, which is of course a terrorist organization dedicated | Read More »
Shouldn’t Facebook Provide Equal Time?
Just last Wednesday, Barack Obama held a townhall meeting online at Facebook. It drew lots of publicity and was hailed as a campaign event. Heck, it clearly was all about Barack Obama’s re-election. We know Facebook leans left. We know Mark Zuckerberg is happy to be taxed more. But what of the Facebook community? They aren’t all lefties. When the GOP has a nominee, Facebook | Read More »
Gary Johnson Brings Libertarian Philosophy to The GOP.
“The notion that Washington knows best has put us in the place that we are in right now, which is bankrupt,” – GOP Candidate, Gary Johnson.

Why Republicans Will Never Win the PR Battle on a Government Shutdown. And Why They Shouldn’t Care.
“Should Washington’s power diminish, reporters’ access to power would diminish. Smaller government is a deal breaker for the Washington press corps.” Conservatives are prone to lament a liberal bias in the media. There is another bias conservatives should play more careful attention to because it affects even the more relatively unbiased analysts and reporters that exist on television, radio, and in print. It is the | Read More »

Leading From Behind
Many of us have been struggling to make sense of Barack Obama’s erratic foreign policy. He says he doesn’t want to fight “dumb wars” and then goes and acts stupid in Libya. He constantly seems to be working to undermine the United States’ role in the world and bows to every foreign crowned head except Queen Elizabeth II, who he gives an iPod. He returns | Read More »
Tech at Night: Amazon Internet Tax, Privacy, Google
California’s Democrats, having refused to get tough with the unions who coincidentally will fund their re-election campaigns, are still determined to raise taxes. So they continue to push for an unconstitutional Amazon Tax on the Internet that just might cost the state more than it brings in, in the long run. They’re playing with “thresholds” to try to focus the bill on specific companies like | Read More »

NLRB Sues Arizona & South Dakota Over Secret-Ballot Amendments
On the heels of President Obama’s union-controlled National Labor Relations Board complaint telling the Boeing Company where it should locate its second 787 assembly plant, the NLRB has now decided to sue two out of the four states where voters audaciously passed constitutional amendments last fall requiring secret-ballot elections on unionization. Previously, the NLRB had threatened to sue all four states. However, those plans were | Read More »

EPA Ruling Kills Shell’s Plans to Drill Offshore Alaska
A ruling by the Environmental Appeals Board of the EPA has scuttled Shell Oil Company’s plan to drill its initial exploratory test in Alaska’s Chukchi Sea. This is at least the second time drilling has been deferred or delayed due to environmental concerns. But this time, the reason proffered by EPA seems to be “Because we can.” The EPA’s appeals board ruled that Shell had | Read More »
SCOTUS Denial of ObamaCare Review Tells Us Little
From the diaries by Erick A number of people have asked me whether today’s rejection of Virginia’s request for expedited Supreme Court review of its ObamaCare challenge tells us anything about how the Court will ultimately rule on the statute’s constitutionality. The answer is no. It is folly to draw any conclusions because it’s extremely unusual for the Supreme Court to grant certiorari – that | Read More »
Union Leaders Teach Labor Studies Courses on Communism, Violence, Industrial Sabotage & Frying Cats
The University of Missouri has an expansive $1.9 billion enterprise with an operating budget of $500 million which, according to its website, 37% comes through state appropriations. While the University’s Institute of Labor Studies may only be a small fraction of its budget, one must wonder why tax dollars are being used to fund a program that espouses Communism, teaches tactics in industrial sabotage (including | Read More »
