The US Army: an institution corrupted to its very core
It is really a shame. Under the regime of Barack Obama, the US Army has become a festering pustule of moral corruption and ethical blindness. For a lot of budgetary and political reasons, the Army — my Army — has never been big on moral courage at the senior leadership levels. It doesn’t have bombers, fighters, submarines, or aircraft carriers so it is always vulnerable | Read More »
Obama Gets Back to Community Organizing
The Obama administration has had a lot of terrible ideas over the years, many of which have demonstrated that he simply does not believe in capitalism or the free market as a philosophical matter. The latest of these ideas, which has been largely flying under the radar, is a proposed HUD regulation that would – no joke – involve the Federal Government in the makeup | Read More »
Filling in for Rush Limbaugh Today at 12pm ET
Get ready folks. I’m filling in for Rush Limbaugh today at 12pm ET. I have tons of stuff to talk about. Consider this an open thread.
The Unaffordable Care Act Works Like Hell
Michael Tanner of National Review Online points out some of the awesome positives we see with Glorious Obamacare! Obamacare generates piles of relative surplus value without requiring any innovation. Already we’ve seen requests for increases for individual plans as high as 64.8 percent in Texas, 61 percent in Pennsylvania, 51.6 percent in New Mexico, 36.3 percent in Tennessee, 30.4 percent in Maryland, 25 percent in | Read More »
The Failing Health of State ObamaCare Exchanges
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Melissa Quinn to discuss the health of state ObamaCare exchanges, Florida’s rejection of Medicaid expansion and how King v. Burwell may have a dramatic impact on health insurance in 2016.Read More »
Fund Your Own Uterus
For being strong supporters of individual decision-making, the “choice” crowd certainly does enjoy placing responsibility elsewhere. This is true not just in their conclusion that the unborn are to bear the brunt of the blame in certain situations, but also in their pursuit of financial contribution for birth control. It’s apparently “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Plan B”, or didn’t you know? Birth control | Read More »
If you don’t like GOP opposition to TPA and TPP, thank Leadership
I’m seeing a lot of nasty, bitter comments lately from hard core free traders about the growing GOP opposition to giving Barack Obama Trade Promotion Authority (TPA, usually known as Fast Track), so that the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) can get an up-or-down vote. Populism, hurting Americans, protectionism, rabble rabble rabble. Well, you know what? Don’t blame the politicians turning on this. Blame the GOP Establishment | Read More »
If President Obama Has No Strategy Yet To Fight ISIS, Why Is He Sending 500 More Soldiers To Fight ISIS?
President Barack Obama could end his Potemkin war against ISIS in one of two ways. He could annihilate the enemy, or he could write off Iraq and Syria. This is a tough leadership decision that a real leader would agonize over. Barack Obama in no way resembles a real leader. He will take the easy wrong over a hard right. Continuing to send additional military | Read More »
Tech at Night: Congressional action on patents and Internet taxes
Bad news first: The Senate passed a comprehensive patent bill, and now the House is checking on it. ACU is coming out strongly against a comprehensive bill, to which I say: Bravo.
The Bush Conundrum
The Washington Post has a story on Jeb Bush’s bad week. He hasn’t had a great week in the press, but let me shut down one story and focus on another. I went on a whirlwind tour of the DC press circuit on Monday and Tuesday and got asked by every media outlet about Jeb Bush bringing in Danny Diaz as his campaign manager. “Doesn’t | Read More »

GOP Sellout? As #ObamaTrade TPA Vote Nears, More Ugly Details Emerge — #StopFastTrack
According to the press reports, the Republican-led House of Representatives [emphasis added…for emphasis] appears ready to vote on Friday over whether to aid and abet Barack Obama by giving him “fast-track” authority (aka Trade Promotion Authority, or TPA) on the free-trade monstrosity known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership. This, of course, follows the “bi-partisan” Senate vote to grant Obama fast-track authority in May. While unions (and many Democrats) have | Read More »
Ben Carson: Unfit to be President
I’m not the first person to come across this story about Ben Carson, but the truth about Ben Carson’s ties to the ‘glyconutrient’ Mannatech movement are troubling. Even if you listen to his entire defense of his ties to the snake oil Mannatech product line, it’s clear he’s been fooled, and I can’t imagine considering anyone promoting this stuff being fit to be President of | Read More »
Follow the Money: Basic Rights Oregon
Unless you live on the West Coast, Basic Rights Oregon may be an unfamiliar name to you. However, those paying attention to the national marriage debate and the ramifications of that debate on religious freedom have certainly heard of this group’s efforts in recent days. Last week, The Daily Signal released a series of communications between Basic Rights Oregon and employees of the Oregon Bureau | Read More »
John Kasich Is Not Running to be President
Dan Balz at the Washington Post reports that John Kasich has hired John Weaver and Fred Davis to be his campaign consultants, strategists, pillagers of his bank account, and all around agents of a pseudo-Presidential campaign. Kasich has, no doubt, looked in the mirror every day since he left Fox News calling himself “Mr. President.” But Kasich is not now running to be President. Surely, | Read More »
Dear Accidental Sen. Bennet: Actions speak louder than words
“Accidental” (D-CO) has a problem on his hands – his lefty actions as a Senator don’t fit the centrist veneer he’s attempting to paint over his record. Senator Bennet currently occupies a seat that is considered to be the seventh most likely in the nation to change parties, and in a western, libertarian-esque, independent state like Colorado, his far-left actions don’t bode well for his | Read More »
Bum Fight!! New York Times and POLITICO duke it out over a bottle of Night Train
The honeymoon is over. The bloom is off the rose. The cold light of dawn has arrived. The heady romance is now headed for divorce court. For a few weeks POLITICO, and in particular its correspondent Dylan Byers (@DylanByers), has been the go-to guy the mainstream media use to stomp on the stories the Washington Free Beacon has been breaking. For instance, back on May 14, | Read More »

Does Obama’s outburst against SCOTUS mean that the Obamacare decision has been leaked to the White House?
It’s been pretty much a universal article of faith in the country that Supreme Court decisions are absolutely secret until they are announced. No one knows the result, except for the justices, their clerks, and the few staff people who input the text of the decisions. And it needs to be that way, because advance knowledge of a particular decision can be a tremendous advantage | Read More »
On behalf of the GOP, I would like to thank the AFL-CIO for NY-04 and CA-07.
