Obama’s Bureaucrats Not Allowed To Dictate Who Are The Clergy
As much as anything, the upcoming election is all about Obama’s minions leaping into and stomping on (with jackboots) the everyday activities of all Americans. Obama’s recently illegal appointments to the CFPB and the NLRB are an example of that. It is unfortunate that there is very little Republicans in Congress can do about it, unless they get stupid and try to impeach Obama, an | Read More »
It’s Obama Who Must Put Aside His Politics
Article II, Section 3 of the United States Constitution [emphasis mine]: He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the | Read More »
NYT Welcomes Home Troops From Iraq By Smearing Them With the Murtha Treatment
What would the world…what would America…be like without the New York Times? On page A20 of today’s paper, the Times reports on remarks made yesterday by the President and the First Lady at Fort Bragg (the full remarks are here at the White House website). I’ll have a little more on these later. But on the front page is this story: “Junkyard Gives Up Secret | Read More »
Holder and OF&F: Nothing More Here, Move Along
Here’s what I would like to see today, tomorrow, and every other day after that: every single GOP candidate demanding the resignation of President “King Nothing” Obama’s Attorney General along with every Obama DoJ appointee who was involved with Operation Fast & Furious. In tomorrow night’s debate, the opening statements of each candidate need to hammer this home. Yesterday, near the end of his day-long | Read More »
Holder’s Criminality, Obama’s Hypocrisy
The disgraceful AG Eric Holder is getting really testy lately, lashing out at The Daily Caller for instigating members of Congress, Presidential candidates, and a couple of governors (all Republicans) into calling for his resignation over the deadly Operation Fast & Furious fiasco. Of course, the reporting on it from Sharyl Attkisson of CBS had pretty much EVERYTHING to do with these Republicans’ demands for | Read More »
Happy Thanksgiving!!! This is a day to bless God and thank Him for all that He’s given us and all that we have. But most especially, for giving us a place, a country, where we can do these things. We need to hold on to it as best we can, just so we do have a place to worship Him and give Him thanks, and | Read More »
Gingrich Supports Amnesty? Eh, No.
I was able to watch most of last night’s debate. The two candidates who have had the more controversial positions on immigration are Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry. It’s worth noting that both have probably more involvement with dealing with illegal aliens than any of the other candidates; Gingrich in supporting the 1986 Reagan amnesty and Perry being the 10-year governor of Texas who helped | Read More »
Does Obama Also Pray to God to Get Republicans to Tax the Rich?
Via NewsBusters: When conservatives and Republicans display their religious expression, we hear endless diatribes from the Democrat media about how they are religious kooks and/or are trying to establish a Christianist theocracy upon an unsuspecting, gullible population. But when Democrats invoke God or their religion, it’s just their faith and it’s a good thing. Especially when that faith espouses leftist extremism.
There Aren’t Enough Bad Words to Describe Krugman
I read Krugman so you don’t have to. But to be honest, I always feel like I have to take a shower afterwards because reading Krugman is like cleaning the feces left behind by the OWS squatters. At his blog at the NYT, Democrat shill Paul Krugman graphically displays his anti-Constitution bona fides while discussing some paper (this is the link Krugman provides) that suggests | Read More »
More Myth Debunking: “Arizona SB1070 to Unleash Torrent of Hate Crimes Against Hispanics”
On April 23, 2010, Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law Arizona’s SB1070, the strictest anti-illegal alien law among the states. The front page of the Arizona Republic carries a story with the headline “Racial hate crimes surge 39% in Phoenix” which states in the second paragraph: Hate crimes in Phoenix classified by race rose from 36 to 50, an increase that experts who track Valley | Read More »
Myth Debunking: “You Can’t Legislate Morality”
I recently finished watching Ken Burns’ “Prohibition” (I had DVR’d it). As with his “The Civil War” documentary, I found it compelling and excellent. I was pleasantly surprised when Burns admitted that it was progressives who brought about the insanity that was the 18th Amendment and the Volstead Act. That is, until the film took to discussing the aftermath of the 1929 Stock Market Crash | Read More »
I know Erick will be coming up with his analysis of the Republican debate in Michigan. It’ll be interesting to see how mine matches up with his.
The Good, The Bad, The Grinch, and The (Monty Python) Spanish Inquisition
So much has come out of the D.C. Circuit the last couple of days. The “good” has a blistering, and quite appropriate, attack on the 111th Congress. The “bad” approaches the travesty of 2005′s Supreme Court Kelo decision. And then there is a bonus. It’s long, but I think would be well worth the read.
Cain v. Gingrich; Bonus: Monty Python Sketch Below the Fold
I watched last nights debate between Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Both were lively and anxious to get their points out. But Gingrich showed why he’s the class of the field; he truly displayed a mastery of the issues and was ready with conservative solutions. Getting rid of the CBO? Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Granted, I’m not sure how an idea | Read More »
It’s Guy Fawkes Day!!!
Source Oh how OWS drips with irony: NEW YORK (AP) — Look at a photo or news clip from around the world of Occupy protesters and you’ll likely spot a handful of people wearing masks of a cartoon-like man with a pointy beard, closed-mouth smile and mysterious eyes. The mask is a stylized version of Guy Fawkes, an Englishman who tried to bomb the British | Read More »
Obamacare’s Disappearing Health Care “Savings”
It’s that time of year again. It’s time for me to select next year’s company-provided health insurance coverage for me and my wife. Last year, I reported an 11% increase in my health insurance premiums for 2011 compared to the costs in 2010. Well, they’re going up again, this time roughly 13%. All thanks to Obama and the Democrats. Per ABC News, Obama said the | Read More »
About That Income Inequality Thang…
Back in the 480s B.C., word was coming down in Greece that the Persians under King Xerxes were planning to take their revenge against the Greeks for the Persian loss in the war a few years earlier. The Athenian statesman Themistocles did what many Greek politicians did, headed to Delphi to consult the Oracle on what could be done. In a nutshell, the Oracle told | Read More »
Sherman, Set The Wayback Machine To…
…the Hundred Years War. WHAT?!? So how can a post about the Hundred Years War have any relevance? I leave that to you, dear reader, to decide if it’s so. Moammar Qaddafi is dead. YAAAAAYYYYY!!!! I do love it when terrorists like that get their comeuppance…and the Mussolini treatment. In many respects, I can support a “the ends justify the means” mentality. But not regarding | Read More »
What is it about the Save Obama’s Job Act Causing Democrats to Ignore the Constitution?
First, it was President Obama’s Democratic former OMB director Peter Orszag. Then it was Governor Bev Perdue (D-NC). Now, it’s Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL): “I hope the president continues to exercise extraordinary constitutional means, based on the history of Congresses that have been in rebellion in the past,” Jackson said. “He’s looking administratively for ways to advance the causes of the American people, because | Read More »
Democrats Without a Clue
GE CEO Geoffrey Immelt is nobody’s idea of a free-market capitalist. He’s taken crony capitalism to the hilt being on President Obama’s Council on Jobs and competitiveness, and figuring out how his company can avoid paying corporate income taxes (I wonder why the Occupy Wall Street dorks aren’t protesting in front of GE’s U.S. HQ). There, I got that out. As reported by Ezra Klein, | Read More »
