Republicans Will Vote to Fund President Obama’s Amnesty. Then Try to Take It All Back.
You people are being played by the GOP. Remember when the GOP wanted to raise the debt ceiling, but claim they would oppose it. They voted to raise it, but then Congress could vote to stop the raise. The President could then veto the stoppage and the debt ceiling would raise. But the GOP could claim they opposed him. That is happening again. This time | Read More »
Jim Webb throws his hat in the 2016 ring
Virginia Democrat and former senator Jim Webb has created an exploratory committee as the first stage in a 2016 presidential run. Via Politico: “I made this decision after reflecting on numerous political commentaries and listening to many knowledgeable people.

Asian students sue Harvard for discrimination
In the 1920s many Ivy League schools faced a conundrum. Their admissions policy was based on how an applicant placed on an admissions test. If you scored high enough, you were admitted. Under that system the dimwitted scions of major donors were being turned away in favor of *gasp, horror* the sons of Jewish immigrants. According to Jerome Karabel in The Chosen: The Hidden History of Admission | Read More »
Will Lavender Nazis Kill a Reality Show?
The one thing that we’ve learned in the ongoing war over homosexual marriage is that homosexuals are probably the most vicious and vindictive interest group in the nation. They are not content with mere equality but rather are obsessed with demanding that their particular brand of sexual deviance is not merely accepted but celebrated as something other that what it is. Writing in “One Nation, | Read More »
Last night I took a lot of calls from angry listeners who were not just angry at the President, but at the GOP for not fighting to stop him.
Bernie Sanders – The Purest Leftist Possible in 2016.
So Diogenes wandered the City of Demville with his lamp. His shoulders sagged, his expression grew hang-dog. He searched in vain for one honest man other than Jonathan Gruber. Ah, but his eyes lit up and his frown turned around. There was one man….one honest man on the American Left. That one last defender of the faith was, alas, not a registered Democrat. He is | Read More »

Republicans Will Not Block Barack Obama (Because They Want the Same Thing)
In 2011, Barack Obama said he did not have the constitutional authority to do what he is going to announce today. In fact, on March 28, 2011, Barack Obama said “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case…. There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of | Read More »
Tech at Night: Yeah, still more on Title II Net Neutrality extremism
Image credit to Mike Wendy at Media Freedom. When called Net Neutrality the Obamacare of the Internet, the left squawked, but it’s true. Net Neutrality, including via the Title II Reclassification power grab, is all promises, but will predictably have bad results for all of us. Its so bad even the Reverend Jesse Jackson dislikes it because it will hurt poor minorities.

So That Explains the Buzzfeed Hit
Buzzfeed and much of the rest of the press is covering the bizarre behavior of an Uber executive who wanted to dig up dirt on at least one journalist. I love Uber, but geez they behavior like Nixon runs the joint. My 9 year old and I used Uber all through New York City last week. It was a great experience. In any event, last | Read More »

Obamacare is About to Bankrupt a Whole Bunch of Small Businesses
The crushing costs of compliance with the regulatory burdens of Obamacare have already been well documented, especially as they pertain to small businesses. But as small businesses prepare their corporate tax returns next year, many accountants are warning that, based on Department of Labor guidelines issued after the election, countless small businesses are about to be hit with a huge tax penalty that they simply | Read More »
Gruber and Iraq WMD: a tale of two deceptions
Okay, I admit it. My headline is a bit of a troll but now that you’re reading stick with me for a few minutes. The Gruber story continues to be the gift that keeps on giving. While Dr. Gruber has been prolific in puffing up his role, the administration has pulled out all the stops to deny Gruber was anything other than one of the | Read More »
The Diluvial Effects of Sin
I’m studying for my Seminary exam, which is two weeks away. One of the things I keep coming back to is how, once you dig in, so much of the rich tapestry of the Bible is connected. Consider, if you will, sin. “In the beginning, God created the heaves and the earth.” We know that part, but go down a bit to verse six and | Read More »
While You’re Distracted, Humanum is Happening
There are more important things in life than politics. One of those things is happening as I write. Most of the world is oblivious to it. The press corps has completely ignored it. But it may be one of the most consequential events in the early twenty-first century. It is called Humanum. In Rome, at the Vatican, an interfaith gathering is occurring to discus marriage. | Read More »
