Unions Win Obama Veto Threat Over GOP Effort To Curb NLRB’s Ambush Election Rules
On Wednesday, the GOP-led U.S. Senate will vote to undo the National Labor Relations Board’s announced rules enabling unions to “ambush” companies with so-called “quickie elections.” According to the Hill: Republicans are using the Congressional Review Act that allows lawmakers to undo regulation through a motion of disapproval, which needs a majority vote in both chambers. The motion can’t be filibustered or amended, which will | Read More »
The Constitution has Failed
Give the framers of the Constitution a lot of credit for having an understanding of human nature that was surprisingly perceptive and ahead of its time. They understood well that, all other things being equal, men will more often act in their own perceived self interest than in the interest of others. They therefore understood that the key to establishing a long-lasting form of government | Read More »
Replace John Boehner as House Speaker
As my colleague streiff wrote a while ago, (alleged) Republican Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% just pushed through a “clean” bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security and funded Barack Obama’s plan to grant amnesty to millions of illegals. Boehner has once again flipped the bird to the conservative base and shown his cowardice in the face | Read More »
DHS funding bill passes on Democrat votes
The bill to give Obama’s illegal amnesty program official sanction passed the House by a vote of 257-167. Only 75 Republicans could be convinced to go along with this travesty. All 167 “Nay” votes were cast by the GOP. This vote, like the one-week extension vote, leave Boehner look weak and wounded. He has now officially joined Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% | Read More »
Bibi Netanyahu, Churchill of Our Time, Defends Western Civilization at the U.S. Congress
“There are three types of people in this world: sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. Some people prefer to believe that evil doesn’t exist in the world, and if it ever darkened their doorstep, they wouldn’t know how to protect themselves. Those are the sheep. Then you’ve got predators, who use violence to prey on the weak. They’re the wolves. And then there are those blessed with | Read More »
Secession in the U.S.?
Via The Economist: The towns are in New York’s Southern Tier. They sit on top of the Marcellus Shale, which is full of natural gas. New Yorkers, unlike their Pennsylvanian neighbours, are not allowed to tap the gas because of a state ban on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) announced by Andrew Cuomo, the governor, on December 17th. Hours later on the same day, a state panel | Read More »

John Boehner Will Fund President Obama’s Amnesty
I told y’all he was lying when he puffed his chest and said he’d stop the President. He had no intention of doing so. And now Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% will ensure President Obama’s executive amnesty is funded. He will, like so many other Republican leaders, hide behind a court to fight for him. Coward.
Boehner folds like a cheap suit
By the time you read this, the drama may be over, the Constitution shredded, the GOP held in disrepute by everyone except the Chamber of Commerce, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% and Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% gagged and shackled in a dark basement while Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 11% films his “personal trainer” having his | Read More »

Homeland Security funding and the imminent Constitutional crisis
Whether by ignorance or design a large number of GOP members in the House and Senate are misrepresenting what is a stake with the funding of the Department of Homeland security. The issue has nothing to do with the operations of an agency where well over 80% of it will stay on the job regardless of what action the Congress takes. The issue is not | Read More »

Mike O’Rielly continues to do outstanding work, joining Ajit Pai in exposing the dangerous lack of transparency the Obama administration has shown. This is pretty bad. What does the FCC have to hide?
