Virginia’s Governor Bob McDonnell Thinks You’re an Idiot
On Friday, March 15, 2013, at 8:00 a.m. Bob McDonnell will go to CPAC and address the Faith & Freedom Coalition Prayer Breakfast. For those of you who attend this event, you will be sitting staring at a liar. If you are a conservative, remember Bob McDonnell thinks you’re an idiot.

Mario Loyola’s Fluffernutter Ode to Mitch McConnell
In 2014, if conservatives can drum up a primary against Mitch McConnell of value, the conservative movement will finally have the brush fire of liberty it needs to burn up the under brush of the movement. Add Mario Loyola to the list of Republicans first, conservative second with this entry. I’m really trying to keep the sexual slang and innuendo to a minimum in describing | Read More »
Just the Fracks, Ma’am
Natural gas is a cheap, abundant American resource, and cleaner than all of its viable alternatives to boot. It would be hard for a reasonable person not to favor natural gas as a component of our national energy mix, but then anti-frackers like Josh Fox, Yoko Ono and their ilk put little value on being reasonable people. They are the neo-Luddites resisting a modern energy revolution, standing between the people and the prosperity promised by affordable domestic energy.

Blueprint NC: How A Shadowy Left-Wing Hydra Plans A Targeted Attack On NC Republicans
As part of a two-year plan to “Eviscerate, Mitigate, Litigate, Cogitate, and Agitate,” the memo outlines a strategy to target Republican Governor Pat McRory and other conservative leaders

Pentagon Begins Notifying Civilian Employees of Furloughs
The military is starting to notify civilian employees of possible sequestration related furloughs. Below is part of one of the emails sent out this morning. Pay particular attention to the last bullet point: Furlough duration: First, enacting civilian unpaid furloughs is a measure of last resort. If it does occur, the most likely option is one day per week for the last 22 weeks of | Read More »
The American Conservative Union’s Embarrassing Scorecard
I had to look twice. Then I looked one more time. The American Conservative Union (“ACU”) has released its annual scorecard. It is supposed to be a scorecard for a measure of conservatism on Capitol Hill. So you will be as surprised as I was to find that Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican Leader with a history of undermining conservatives in the Senate, has a | Read More »
Shotgun Joe Inspires a Great Idea: Free AR-15!
It’s not often that Joe Biden inspires a great idea (unless you’re talking about late-night comedians) and mostly he just makes you wish he’d shove some pie into that pie-hole and stop talking for five minutes. But stick with me. You’ll want to hear this: Barack Obama has made the Vice-President the point man in his Gun Control Task Force, or as I like to | Read More »
ObamaNation: At least $177 Million In Tax Dollars Paid For Federal Workers To Do Union Business
Since the average federal employee made over $108,000 in both salary and benefits (in 2008), or $52.15 per hour, the costs to taxpayers in FY 2011 was over $177 million for federal government workers to conduct union business.

Kasich Repeats Medicaid Expansion Lies in Ohio State of the State Address
Governor John Kasich forcefully repeated multiple falsehoods about expanding Medicaid eligibility in Ohio during his 2013 State of the State address on February 19. As he and his administration have done for weeks, Kasich falsely insisted that Ohio’s promised federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) funding for expanding Medicaid will be sent to other states if Ohio rejects the expansion.

Detroit and How Democracies Die
It’s easy to kick Detroit. The place just about roles over and begs for it. Now we learn that the City Henry Ford built is now eligible to be put under emergency management by Governor Rick Snyder. Michigan State Treasurer described the situation succinctly below.
“We believe there’s a financial emergency in the city and that there’s no plan in place to correct the situation … I do believe strongly Detroit is fixable,” he said.
I read this, nod in sad agreement and then think to myself that Detroit is just the symptom. Detroit is just the canary that died in the burning coal mine of American finance. Our country is going bankrupt and despite our heartfelt desire that this not happen, most of us are helping it occur. We are caught in what’s called a discursive dilemma. Gonzalo Lira gives us an explanation of how we made it to sequestration below.

Immigration as a Public Charge
Our immigration system is broken, but not in the way that those who utter such declarations believe it to be. Immigration can be an integral part of a pro-growth economic agenda. It can also become a public charge. When liberals lament our broken immigration system, they are suggesting that we don’t admit enough low-skilled immigrants who will become a public charge and vote Democrat. The | Read More »
I Am Very Disappointed in Governor Rick Scott
I was one of the few national conservatives to support Governor Scott in 2010 during his primary. He is a fundamentally great person. I really like him. He has been a friend to this site. But I am terribly disappointed in his decision to expand Medicaid in Florida. As one of the chief opponents of Obamacare and, before it, Hillarycare, Governor Scott knows this is | Read More »
Why Are We Not Talking About America’s $123 Trillion In Unfunded Liabilities?
The fact that, in addition to the $16.5 trillion of debt we currently have, every man, woman, and child in America also is on the hook for nearly $400,000 in unfunded liabilities–or, over $1 million for every household.

Obama’s Cowardly Mendacity Over Sequestration
In August 2011, Obama hatched a deal to grant himself a free $2.1 trillion increase in debt, which would take him past the 2012 elections, thereby sparing him the embarrassment of another debt limit request during the campaign season. He knew that such a request was so bold it needed to be ensconced in a deal that would give voters the impression he was committed | Read More »
