A White House Connection in the IRS Scandal?
The IRS scandal just took a turn for the worse, exposing what may be further political abuse by the Obama Administration.
It has recently come to light that the Obama Administration’s Treasury Department is in possession of over 2,500 pages of documents that may show that the IRS and the White House were colluding to illegally obtain confidential taxpayer information and that the White House used that information in an attempt to harm its political enemies.Read More »
Chuck Schumer and pretending that the Democratic party is not what it is.
This is an entertaining article on Chuck Schumer by Dan Henninger, but this sentence makes me raise an eyebrow: “With [his speech indicating that Democrats should not have concentrated on Obamacare], Chuck Schumer was sending an audible signal to state and local party bosses around the country and to peeved donors—aghast at the midterm results—that not everyone in Washington has lost his mind to the | Read More »
Responding to TPM’s Poor Excuse to the Poors
Recently over at Talking Points Memo, an opinion piece titled, “Why Do Poor People ‘Waste’ Money On Luxury Goods,” sought to set the record straight about, well, exactly what the title stated. “We hates us some poor people,” begins author Tressie McMillan Cottom; a disturbing start to a post that offers up not much more than an excuse to keep spending money you don’t have. | Read More »
We’ve Crossed 100 Orders of Balls for John Boehner. Keep Sending!
John Boehner needs to stop playing with Barack Obama’s balls and get some of his own. Go here and join the movement. Send a set of blue balls to John Boehner as a visually distinct message that he needs to find his testicular fortitude and stop the President’s amnesty plan. My original post on this is here and the address to mail the balls to | Read More »
Is Hillary Clinton’s Run for President Inevitable? Maybe Not.
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Aaron Blake to discuss polling that shows why Hillary Clinton may run for president, five significant reasons she may not and what the Democrat’s field for 2016 looks like without a Clinton on the ballot.Read More »
In the UVA Rape Case, Liberals Dismayed to Learn that Facts Matter
Let me start this piece out by saying that I don’t know one way or another whether the now infamous alleged gang rape of a UVa student (as reported in Rolling Stone) happened. Obviously, I wasn’t there, I’ve never talked to any of the people involved to personally assess their credibility, and I have no means or opportunity to investigate the alleged background facts to | Read More »
Voxsplaining the Pope
I’m a Catholic and have to admit that I’m not sending Pope Francis a Christmas card. I think he’s suffering from the effects of going from, to mix metaphors, a big fish in a small pond (Argentina? Really?) to a little meatball in a big plate of spaghetti. His statements are confusing the faithful and encouraging the enemies of faith, like, for instance, what your | Read More »
Democrats use 40 Attorneys to attempt to Manipulate NM Land Commissioner Race
November 4th, almost a month ago, Land Commissioner Ray Powell narrowly lost the popular vote in New Mexico to challenger Aubrey Dunn. Because Mr. Dunn won the race by less than 0.5 percent, New Mexico state statute mandated an automatic recount. While Dunn declared victory, Powell swore that the race was far from over and that he was “cautiously optimistic” that the recount would make | Read More »
Shut Up About Obama’s Amnesty Plan Unless You Do This One Thing
You have given up your right to complain about Barack Obama’s amnesty plan. Just shut up. Stop complaining. You know why? Because you did not do the one thing that could stop it. You did not call your congressman despite me making it very easy for you to do so. All you had to do was click here. I’m in Washington, D.C. right now. Last | Read More »
Would You Please Click Here to Order John Boehner Some New Balls?
I guess Barack Obama took John Boehner’s balls because Boehner is playing with the President’s balls instead of his own. That’s sad. I mean, think about this. For the last three months, the GOP actively campaigned against Barack Obama’s planned amnesty action while the Democrats attacked the GOP for a government shut down. You could be forgiven for thinking the GOP just got its ass | Read More »
Tech at Night: Here they come, disempowering ordinary folks from new technologies
I called it, I called it, I called it. When I pointed out that proposed regulations of drones were being done purely to keep ordinary folks from being empowered, I got a lot of flak for it. I got told no, we needed big government because drones aren’t safe. Every argument the gun grabbers use, were being used to defend the drone grabbers. Now they’ve | Read More »
Trey Gowdy (R-SC) Says His Preferred Method of Stopping Obama is to Let John McCain Do It
Now this is just pathetic. Some of you turned into the hero of the day because of his Benghazi investigation. He could do no wrong. What happens when you build a cult of personalty around any politician is then they can go BOHICA on you. Bend over America. is now on record admitting he’s going to help shove President Obama’s amnesty plan right where you | Read More »
Chuck Hagel and Ashton Carter: profiles in irrelevancy
Obama, having finished trolling conservatives with a rumor he was going to appoint Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson as Secretary of Defense, is almost certainly going to nominate Ashton Carter to that position. (This is not to be confused with Ashton Kutcher who was offered the job but decided it would take away from quality time with Mila Kunis.) The country has done much | Read More »
Ownership is justice
If property is peace, then ownership is justice. Earlier I proposed that respect for property rights is an essential ingredient to a peaceful and orderly society. The atrophy of property rights – most definitely including the aggressive seizure of wealth by redistributionist government – correlates directly with social strife. That’s one of the reasons anti-capitalists turn up at violent and anarchic protests, such as the | Read More »
BREAKING: NYPD Officer who Killed Eric Garner NOT Indicted
Forget Ferguson for just a minute. Everyone has already made up their minds about what has happened to an extent that further discussion about the issues raised by the interaction between Wilson and Brown have been obscured by the disputes about the facts of the particular case. As I said yesterday, it sure would have been nice if we had video of the incident, but | Read More »
It isn’t rape when Democrats do it
Yesterday a former senior Democrat staffer (he worked for Joe Lieberman and in the Senate and Herb Kohl, , and in the House) plead guilty in DC Superior Court to third-degree sexual abuse, two misdemeanor counts of sexual abuse and one count of misdemeanor threats. You might think justice was done, but you would be wrong. What did this senior Congressional staffer do? Prosecutors say | Read More »
On the budget, John Boehner must learn from Brian Mulroney
It appears likely that John Boehner will cave on the budget, funding the President’s executive orders on illegal immigration through March, and funding the whole rest of the government (including Obamacare) at our current unsustainable deficits through September, 9 months into the new Republican Congress. He’ll say he had no choice, but we know better. In 1984, when long-time Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, a Liberal, | Read More »
Two dangerously ignorant Obama ambassadors confirmed by lame duck Senate
Yesterday, Barack Obama succeeded in pushing US foreign policy further down the crapper. The Senate voted to confirm two monumentally unqualified party hacks and bag-people as ambassador. The Senate, rejecting an impassioned plea from (R-Ariz.), on Tuesday confirmed two major Obama campaign contributors for ambassadorships to Hungary and Argentina. The confirmations of Hollywood television producer Colleen Bell to Budapest and Noah Mamet to Buenos Aires had | Read More »
Here’s Your Target List Against Amnesty. Call These House Members NOW
Folks, this is your call list to stop President Obama’s executive amnesty plan. John Boehner and Harry Reid both support the President. They want to fund President Obama’s plan. Boehner and Reid are collaborating on funding President Obama’s actions. As I have explained before, to get legislation to the floor of the House of Representatives, a rule must first be voted on to set the | Read More »
