More Executive Abuse of Power: Obama Stacks the NLRB
Cablevision has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in an investigation by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) about complaints involving 22 former workers that were allegedly wrongfully terminated. This battle between the media giant and the Communications Workers of America is hardly new information as they have been fighting for the past year, but this most recent move is telling specifically because of | Read More »
Africa Must Remain Poor With No Power or the World Will Boil Over
On June 29, 2013, President Obama participated in the “Young African Leaders Initiative Town Hall” in Johannesburg, South Africa. Toward the very end of his remarks, he said something very telling about his world view: We’re going to all have to work together to find ways in which collectively, we reduce carbon but we make sure that there’s some differentiation so that countries that are | Read More »
Palin’s Third-Party Solution is Part of The Problem
I’ll admit, for a brief moment in 2008, I thought John McCain might actually have a chance at winning. That moment was at the end of Sarah Palin’s speech during which she took a mere 45 minutes to eviscerate the 18 months of image building that was Barack Obama’s campaign.
In 2008, to me, Sarah Palin was the “hope” and “change” the GOP could have used. However, shortly after her convention speech, the McCain campaign took over, the Left attacked, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Now, after four years of being the quasi-professional bomb-throwing GOP outsider, Palin is tossing the idea out there that she’s open to supporting a third party.

NC Unemployment Cuts: A Necessary & Difficult Change
Yesterday, North Carolina became the first state in the country to forfeit federal long-term unemployment benefits. As her state budgets continued to balloon and unemployment remains uncomfortably high, the Republican controlled legislature ended the state’s war on prudent fiscal policy by exempting herself from receiving further federal assistance for people unemployed longer than 26 weeks, as well as lowering the maximum potential benefit. If you | Read More »
Ed Snowden continues to betray America.
I went off on this on Twitter last night, and I am no less disgusted today: Ed Snowden does not, in fact, care for the United States of America. The German magazine Der Spiegel reported Saturday that the NSA had bugged European Union offices and gained access to EU internal computer networks where it was able to read documents and emails. United Nations offices were | Read More »
The “Evolving” Energy Policies of President Bystander
In a “groundbreaking” speech Tuesday at Georgetown University, Barack Obama rehashed the same anti-Big Oil rhetoric and half-baked energy policies that have marked his Administration since 2009.

Did St. Louis Spend $15k To Make Public Building Light Up For Gay Pride?
St. Louis celebrated the defeat of DOMA and Prop 8 with lights: The Civil Courts Building has been showing off rainbow LED lighting most of this week. Soldiers Memorial will switch over to the colors this weekend for St. Louis Pride Fest, which has moved to downtown. Ward 25 Alderman Shane Cohn secured $15,000 in capital improvement money for the lights. Cohn said a company | Read More »
Ohio Union Bosses: Workplace Freedom Kills Babies
Letting workers choose whether to pay a union increases workplace death and infant mortality rates, a document from union front group We Are Ohio warns. Media Trackers has already unraveled union bosses’ “right to work kills workers” rhetoric, but pinning infant deaths on workplace freedom is a new low. “So-called ‘right to work’ is a dangerous attack on working and middle class families.

This Is What Fundamental Transformation Looks Like
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” This is the promise Barack Obama made on Oct. 30, 2008, as the country was counting down to the presidential election. This week he pressed forward on three fronts, even as preparations to implement Obamacare — putting one-sixth of the economy on the path to government domination — slowly grind away. The | Read More »
The Real World and the Chart
Paul Krugman wishes to disprove something I wrote the other day.In this post I wrote: The sage of creased pants bipartisanship, David Brooks, reports on Jesus’s letter to the Corinthians. Thomas Friedman, the guru of globalism reduced to ridiculous phrases with no meaning yells at train stewards for not clearing his plate fast enough. And the Washington to New York crowd laps them all up | Read More »
“Progressive” Sideshow Trivializes IRS Victims for Political Theater
The Left is engaged in a politically motivated sideshow; we are demanding the truth. Finding one progressive group or leftist term which may have been caught up in this IRS dragnet does not change the fact that every Tea Party group was intentionally targeted, set aside for further review, delayed for years, and forced to answer, under penalty of perjury, unconstitutionally intrusive questions.

Rick Perry Praises Wendy Davis. Political Left Gets Outraged
Rick Perry had kind things to say about Wendy Davis at the National Right to Life meeting going on in Dallas. In his speech he noted: In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances, the daughter of a single mother and a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve | Read More »
The Latest George Soros Group: The Evangelical Immigration Table
A number of evangelical leaders in America joined on to the Evangelical Immigration Table early. They felt a calling and need to help. But more and more of them are backing away now that they know it is just another left-wing George Soros funded group designed to appear both moderate in its intentions and ecumenical in its outreach.It is not.In fact, as Marjorie Jeffrey writes | Read More »
Q&A with Rep. Marsha Blackburn on IRFA
Some issues that face us in the tech world get complicated fast, especially when it comes to changing existing Washington regulations. The Internet Radio Fairness Act is one of those messy issues. Please welcome Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, who answered some questions for us on that issue.
How would you describe IRFA, the Internet Radio Fairness Act, to a concerned conservative activist?
Conservatives can agree that music distribution companies should be free to choose a business model that makes the most sense for them, and this includes launching legal, digital broadcasting ventures. But the so-called Internet Radio Fairness Act (H.R. 6480) was introduced last Congress to help webcasters like Pandora and radio stations artificially reduce a key input cost – the amount the government says webcasters should pay recording artists for access to their music.

Mitch McConnell’s Riveting Immigration Speech
It’s better late than never. Two hours before wrapping up the immigration debate, Mitch McConnell finally gave a few-minute floor speech speaking out against the amnesty bill which he supports. Here are some gems: FOR ME, AT LEAST, THAT THE FINAL BILL DIDN’T TURN OUT TO BE SOMETHING I CAN SUPPORT. THE REASON IS FAIRLY SIMPLE. AS I SEE IT, THIS BILL DOESN’T MEET THE THRESHOLD | Read More »
