    Planned Parenthood Dehumanizes Its Victims To Abuse Them

    The  modern abortion movement denies the humanity of its little victims.  When a group is seen as sub-human, killing them becomes acceptable, and using their bodies for any purpose at all seems to their oppressors just fine. Slavery One of the driving forces of the American abolitionist movement was the sexual abuse of black female slaves by their white masters. Abolitionists argued that if the slaves | Read More »

    Trumponomics Are Bad. Attacking His Fans Is Worse

    Conservatives longing for the antiobama have for a moment seized on Donald Trump. Trump has promised to intervene in the economy in ways not even Barack Obama has tried. Trumponomics is bad, but attacking the people who don’t understand why it’s bad will send voters running along with him when he inevitably drops out of the Republican primary to run as an independent.

    What Small Business Helps Pay For Its Employees’ Obamacare? Congress.

    The IRS is fining small businesses that help pay their employees’ health insurance premiums under Obamacare (the “Affordable” “Care” Act). That’s bad enough, but Congress has given itself the ability to do this, contrary to law and good sense. The NFIB reports: Under the rule, which appears nowhere in the Affordable Care Act, employers who do not offer a group health plan, but give their | Read More »

    Congress Should Reject Trade Fast Track Authority

    We free traders have seen international trade as a debacle for decades. We really, really want to end the senseless protectionism and endless complication of international trade. Giving the President Fast Track Authority is too high a price to pay to end it. House Leadership will try again Tuesday to pass the trade package. WH says Pres Obama to confer today with @SpeakerBoehner about getting | Read More »

    Republicans Should Not Fix The Obamacare Web Of Failure

    As the Obamacare train wreck slowly grinds to a halt, the Democrat Media Complex is asking what Republicans will do about it. Republicans should do nothing about it except repeal the rolling disaster before it does any more damage. In the pending Supreme Court decision in King v Burwell, the Justices will decide later this month whether the IRS must follow the letter of the law | Read More »

    Journalists Are Not Special, Even In Ferguson

    While we decry the heavy-handed tactics of the police amid the shocking riots in Ferguson, Missouri, let us not pass over the other antagonists in the drama, the media. It’s unusual for me to disagree with Hot Air’s Mary Katherine Hamm, who says that national reporters are valuable test subjects for Constitutional rights.  Allowing reporters to continue in the illusion that they are something special | Read More »

    7 Fake District Images Democrat Julia Brownley Used In CA-26 Reelection Bid

    Rep Julia Brownley (D-CA26) used a mailer in her reelection bid against surging Jeff Gorell (R) that appears to show community support, but does not picture anyone who actually lives in the district. Some of the images used don’t even come from the United States.

    Hey, There Is A Dishonest Democrat In Georgia, Running For Senate #GASen

    I understand that some may view “dishonest Democrat” as redundant, but it’s just a reminder that if a Democrat running for Congress says the sky is blue, grab an umbrella. Michelle Nunn (D-Bethesda,MDAtlanta) is the daughter of Sam Nunn (D-Bethesda,MDPerry,GA), longtime Democrat Party stalwart and Senator representing Georgia. She’s a loyal, partisan Democrat. Did I mention she’s a Democrat? Because Nunn (D), running as a | Read More »

    Speaker Boehner's Electile Dysfunction

    For the first time in years, House Speaker John Boehner has a serious primary challenger. JD Winteregg is a self-described Tea Party candidate. The Speaker is worried enough to be running TV ads in the district, something he has seldom done in the past. Winteregg has an ad of his own, and it’s sure to raise a few, er, eyebrows. Why Boehner is worried Winteregg | Read More »
