Inaugural Obama strawmen GOP must refute
Conservative principles that make the Party of Lincoln and Reagan grand must be defended daily by those nominated and elected under the GOP banner. We can’t assume that potential voters aren’t influenced by big liberal Democrat lies. Yesterday, on fake Inauguration Day (as per the U.S. Constitution, President Obama took the operational Oath at Noon on Sunday, January 20), we got the more tepid post-re-election-mortem | Read More »
What MLK would say on Obama, poverty, guns, abortion, etc.
Tomorrow, America’s first Black President will deliver his Second Inaugural Address on the national holiday named for the Black preacher that dreamed of a day when Americans would judge their fellow man by the content of their character, and not by the color of their skin. Roosted atop Stone Mountain of Georgia, let’s make it so. During a 1980s lobbying trip to Capitol Hill on | Read More »
Are executive gun orders a ‘tax’ under Obamacare, Mr. Chief Justice?
We had to pass The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), aka Obamacare, before then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said we could find out exactly what was in it. We found out that “The Secretary shall decide…”, or other words to that effect, appear over 100 times in the ACA. It turns out that since arms, and the bearing thereof, “affect” health (and, | Read More »
GOP must call out Obama’s Big ‘default’ Lie, chide Bernanke
And it would help if Bernanke would stop enabling the Big Liar Just as in the 2011 battle over the raising of the debt ceiling, President Barack Obama is again accusing Republicans in Congress of “risking default” unless they raise the debt limit before it is reached within the next two months. It was Big Lie in 2011, just as it is now, in 2013. | Read More »
Lew’s signature: Ego, Eagleton or IQ problem?
Usually when one sees such scribbling on U.S. currency it is evidence of a technical violation of federal law and that gravity was employed to cause ink to flow to the tip of the previously unresponsive violator’s pen. When seen other than on currency it is usually an adult’s boredom-induced doodling; a third-grader’s first attempt at cursive writing or markings made by a monkey that | Read More »
Dr. Debthate or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Government Shutdowns
President Obama’s blindness to government spending problem, and insistence on ever more tax increases on the rich towards always moving fair share-goalposts, makes refusal of the Republican House to raise the debt ceiling an acceptable option. In the wake of the 2010 tea partier conservative epic GOP mid-term election landslide that returned control of the House of Representatives to the party, this columnist urged Republicans | Read More »
What Republicans can’t do, can do, ought do and must do
Only President Barack Obama can cause the U.S. to default on its sovereign debt, and congressional Republicans must make this fact clear to the American people before the current debt ceiling is reached. And only by owning the definition of “default” does the minority party in control of only one house of Congress have any chance of using the debt limit debate to rein in | Read More »
Hope Hillary Heals for Hunger Games Hearing
Americans at home and abroad at the mercy of indifferent and unaccountable Capitol City, with no Katniss in sight [As this column was being prepared, we learned that its main subject was hospitalized for treatment of a blood clot resulting from a concussion she sustained earlier this month. We wish Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a full and quick recovery.] Four dead in Benghazi after | Read More »
If either’s a “token”, it’s Barack Obama, not Tim Scott
Unqualified failure is the surest sign of a “token”, which precisely defines the Obama Economy Cries of “Uncle Tom” and “race trait” issued from liberal Democrats’ lips, attacking S.C. Governor Nikki Haley’s choice to fill the U.S. Senate seat of Jim DeMint, before the press conference announcing the choice of Rep. Tim Scott was over. Consider, for example, The New Yorker’s take on the decision of the | Read More »
Cockstradamus football and other Brave(s) 2013 prognostications
With his years-long Azores sabbatical over and Tucker (at the foot of gamecock’s Stone Mountain of Georgia roost) retirement from election predictions ongoing since the infantilization of the 2012 American electoral majority, Cockstradamus returns as DeVine Law and G. Sand Lapper’s guest end-of-year columnist for requisite annual oracle duties. That should be “as a cigarette should”, but I digress (see #88 Dale Junior below*), but | Read More »
