@BarackObama reportedly planning #obamacare plan cancellation delay…
…in order to help(?) Democrats. The Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act, easing election pressure on Democrats. As early as this week, according to two sources, the White House will announce a new directive allowing insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet ObamaCare’s minimum coverage requirements. Prolonging the “keep your plan” fix will | Read More »
An Age of Seriousness Returns
Until Friday, we lived in an age where the United States government could, with a straight face, assert that the most serious national security issue of our time is global warming. Until Friday, we lived in an age where men could be thought of as boys, living in their parents’ basement, on their parents’ insurance, tweeting angrily in support of two dudes and an | Read More »
Tech at Night: Insurance companies may attack innovation. A group even more absurd than Bitcoin zealots.
Remember during the height of the Edward Snowden media frenzy, how his defenders would dutifully parrot every word RT said about him? Here’s your great Snowden defender now. RT and Snowden are the enemies of liberty, peace, and the United States of America.
Bitcoin is the fantasy tool of ideologues, the 21st century version of Goldbuggery, but there turns out to be a group even more ridiculous than the Bitcoin zealots: TSA agents.Read More »
From The Union Arsenal: How Unions Outspent Business 2 to 1 In SeaTac’s Minimum Wage Battle
If you haven’t heard, the city of SeaTac, Washington (a city of roughly 27,000) is jacking up its minimum wage to $15 an hour. It was the result of a union-funded campaign and, as forewarning to employers, if it hasn’t already, it is something that is likely coming to a city near you.Read More »
Expelling the American Flag from School – Hecklers Win, Patriotism Loses
“Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?”
Apparently the answer is now, “No.” What King George’s rockets red glare and the British bombs bursting in air could not do, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has accomplished in one sweeping judicial opinion banning the American flag from a public school.Read More »
Census Bureau Data Raises Questions Concerning Future Flow of Immigration
From listening to proponents of open borders speak about immigration, one would come away with the impression that we have just experienced a protracted period of low immigration. They contend that our “limited legal immigration” has engendered a need for people to migrate here illegally. However, the Census Bureau published new numbers illuminating a fact that is self-evident to anyone who has studied immigration: we | Read More »
Only Democrats Can Be Prophets
Back in 2008, the foreign policy press corp of America ridiculed Sarah Palin for predicting that Barack Obama’s displays of weakness and softness would set the stage for a Russian invasion of Ukraine. Blake Hounshell, then the left leaning editor of Foreign Policy and now Deputy Editor of Politico’s magazine, labeled the claim “strange.” After Hounshell’s 2008 article started circulating on twitter the other day, | Read More »

Bill Clinton poses with man who called @BarackObama an indentured servant.
(Via @PJMedia_com) Oh, sure, Bill Clinton also posed with a couple of prostitutes, but they were legal ones from Nevada. This is easily more problematical: That’s Robert F Kennedy Jr, who once rather infamously called Barack Obama an indentured servant of the coal industry, and heavily implied that this meant that Barack Obama was a traitor. In a rational world, THAT would have been the | Read More »

The 2014 Democrat Slogan: “F. U. America”
On Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden told Democrats, “We should not apologize for a single thing.” Also on Thursday, Senator Harry Reid said all the horror stories related to Obamacare are lies. He dismissed them as “Koch Brother” smears. The woman with caner is a liar. The man whose mother can’t get her cancer medication covered is a liar too. The guy with multiple sclerosis? | Read More »
John Kerry talks a lot, says very little about #Ukraine.
Oh, brother. Bob Schieffer: The President spoke to Vladimir Putin we are told for 90 minutes yesterday. The White House is describing it as the toughest phone call of his presidency. DO you think it had any impact? What John Kerry said: Secretary Kerry: Well we are going to have to wait and see but I think it was a very important conversation. The President | Read More »
And the setup of a Russian client state in Crimea continues apace.
Told you this would happen. Meet the new boss, taking orders from the old bosses: The newly installed, pro-Russia prime minister of Crimea declared on Saturday that he had sole control over the military and the police in the disputed peninsula and he appealed to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia for help in safeguarding the region. [snip] In his statement Saturday, the Crimean prime | Read More »
Tech at Night: Bitcoin sites continue to fall to thefts. A big Satellite TV bill is coming.
Started a new job officially this week, which means I personally have a new day to day schedule. This is going to be an adjustment. I’ll hopefully have a minimal disruption of Tech, but we’ll see at first.
Remember how Edward Snowden kept claiming that he was just protecting American privacy and exposing NSA overreach? That’s a lie. The fact is, Snowden is not reliable and it’s a shame NSA mistakenly trusted him.
Yet another Bitcoin site has shut down due to the rampant theft in the Bitcoin community.Read More »
The Duke Blue Devils, “Lauren” And Other Harlots Of Babylon
…the mission of Duke University is to provide a superior liberal education to undergraduate students, attending not only to their intellectual growth but also to their development as adults committed to high ethical standards and full participation as leaders in their communities; “Lauren” was proud to be accepted by Duke University. She was so proud that she turned down a full-ride scholarship to Vanderbilt. There | Read More »
Landrieu campaign, media doubling down on Koch bashing
Not too too long ago, I put up a post on how the Left was going into outrage mode over an Americans For Prosperity ad running in Louisiana that featured paid actors and not Louisiana residents. Lucky for all of us, Mary Landrieu’s office is not yet done attacking AFP and the Koch Brothers, who are the money behind AFP, over the ad. In a clearly | Read More »
The Democrats’ efforts to turn Texas blue, Battle Ground Texas, has gone full ACORN. This week we learned election workers in San Antonio engaged in voter intimidation. According to the San Antonio Express-News, two election workers were chastised for steering Hispanic voters to vote Democrat during this week’s early 2014 primary voting: “Two election workers at a Southwest Side polling site were chastised this week after Hispanic Republican | Read More »
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards: Does it Matter if We’re Killing Living Humans?
Cecile Richards is the President of Planned Parenthood, an organization that aborts hundreds of thousands of unborn children a year. You would think, given this, that Cecile Richards would have some sort of coherent philosophical belief about when life begins that would indicate (at least to her) that she doesn’t oversee mass infanticide. You would be wrong: On America with Jorge Ramos this weekend, Cecile | Read More »
NC GOP: It’s Time For Senator Hagan To Stop Hiding And Denounce Rev. William Barber’s Extremism
In 2008, a controversy surfaced around President Obama, one that the mainstream press did everything in their power to ignore, suppress, and generally pretend was much ado about nothing. Who can forget Reverend Wright? He was Barack Obama’s bombastic and offensive preacher, who used anti-Semitic and inflammatory rhetoric on a regular basis from the pulpit where our President heard his weekly sermons. Well it seems | Read More »
