Stop Complaining About Donald Trump

Federal Judge Drops the Hammer on Obama Administration Immigration Defiance
When a federal judge starts using words like “contempt of Court” about senior Obama Administration officials, it gets real serious, real fast.
A federal judge in the case against President Obama’s illegal Executive action on immigration has leveled some serious accusations against not only the Administration and its DOJ attorneys but senior level officials for “violating” a federal court order.
The court has ordered a “show cause” hearing for August 19th at which “Each individual Defendant,” not just their DOJ attorneys, “must attend and be prepared to show why he or she should not be held in contempt of Court.”
Here’s what happened.

The Greek Bail-In and American Entitlement Programs.
So Alex Pollack poses an interesting hypothetical. “Would you take a guaranteed $0.77/$1.00 of your projected Social Security account in cash, today?” In other words, Sam’s Government sets up a barbershop and administers a 23% haircut in return for buying all the default risk that may or may not exist in the Social Security Program. Pollack suggested back in 2012 that a lot of people | Read More »

The human cost of Obama’s immigration policy
Though Barack Obama was not in San Francisco on July 1, he was just as culpable in the murder of 31 year old Katie Steinle as the man who pulled the trigger: a five-time deported illegal with seven prior felony convictions. It is the policy of this administration to ignore US immigration policy. One doesn’t know the reasons for this decision but it is difficult | Read More »
That Time Roosevelt Out Debated Hitler
“Secular leftism does not sell well when contrasted with an ideology that promises an afterlife filled with virgins and a present filled with heroic struggle against a Great Satan sissy in mom jeans.”History remembers how we won World War II.

Tech at Night: The Return of the Revenge
We had a good long stretch where tech policy was the most important thing going on in Washington. Now though, it’s gone on the back burner. The Obama administration has made its big power grabs, passed its bad bills, damaged American credibility abroad, but an ineffective Republican Senate is going to have trouble making a stand against it all. But tonight, despite being sick as | Read More »
Paging Ted Cruz. Paging All the Candidates. Take on the Vichy Republicans.
Marshal Pétain came to power to make peace with Nazi Germany. Somewhere along the way, he no doubt resigned himself to Nazi occupation and muttered “we can now move on to the important things.” He has a kindred spirit in John Feehery, who has spent his career in Washington climbing the ladder. He started with Bob Michel, the man who never met a surrender he | Read More »

GOP higher ups are worried that he’ll hurt the GOP brand and that he may spoil the 2016 cycle for them. They are, in a word, panicking. The thing the GOP | Read More »
Voters Aren’t Disenfranchised, They’re Just Lazy
If you haven’t noticed, an election is coming up. We’re 16+ months away, and the push is on (again) to tackle the perceived reality that is known as voter discrimination. The Left seems to believe low voter participation must mean the existence of rampant voter discrimination. But you can’t force people to vote, or even care about any of the issues facing our country.
