The Confidence-Inspiring Competence of Government: The ObamaCare Website
Promoted from the diaries by Neil
We are two weeks into the ObamaCare exchange experience. It is but the latest disaster aboard this rolling, rollicking federal government train wreck.

Columbus didn’t sail the Ocean Blue to discover a land where we wait around for Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid to decide the future of our lives. We decide. Not the power brokers in DC. We haven’t gone all this time and risked so much over two hundred years to turn the keys over now to others to run our lives. The Veterans on the | Read More »
Media Targets Million Veteran March
CNN published an article this morning purposefully painting the Million Veterans’s March as a “group of conservatives” who are basically birthers and racists and hate Obama. They completely ignored that this was a march organized by veterans for veterans to reclaim their right to visit open air memorials that they mostly funded themselves. No where in this article does CNN even identify the name of | Read More »

Tech at Night: Late again, but let’s talk about Tor and Edward Snowden some more.
I know, it’s two weeks in a row the Friday tech got pushed the the weekend. Sorry.
The war on Tor crime continues as the Silk Road arrests go on and on and on. Next up, find the killers for hire?
Oh look, Edward Snowden and the Glenns Greenwald are in cahoots again. Even as the new push is on to claim he gave no data to the Chinese and Russians. I guess he needs that cover to try to get asylum?

Sequestration Is the Bipartisan Law of the Land. Fight on Obamacare.
I was very disappointed to see Robert Costa of National Review use of the dollar sign in this tweet: in short, growing # of Rs could care less about a con$ervative group's threats about not being Cruz-esque/CR warrior when BCA '11 at risk — Robert Costa (@robertcostaNRO) October 13, 2013 Praised recently by a lot of liberals in the press, invited to the White House | Read More »
“This is Not Just Abstract. This is Real”
Late Friday afternoon, I received a “pleasant” surprise in the mail. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Maryland informed me that, like tens of millions of Americans, my insurance will be terminated next year due to Obamacare. My wife and I were very happy with this plan. Given that I work in politics fighting for limited government and electing citizen legislators instead of working at K | Read More »
Pass a Debt Limit Increase From the House
Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and Susan Collins are doing their best to complicate everything and shill for K Street. I am actually surprised Paul Ryan could be diverted from amnesty long enough to ensure Obamacare is fully funded. But he has. The House should act very simply — pass a debt limit increase. Pass it so it goes through Christmas. There is no point trying | Read More »
MSNBC’s Phil Griffin: Fox News is spying on me! With RAYS! In My HEAD!
This is a highly entertaining media tantrum: Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC, says there’s something fishy about Tuesday’s ratings for the Fox News Channel, which were up significantly from a day earlier when Fox News debuted its new schedule. And he wants an investigation. “Monday we had a really good day in the key demographic. On the night that Fox News debuted their three shows, | Read More »
The Moe Lane Zen And The Art Of Partisan Hackery Flow Chart.
Given the somewhat contentious discussions that we have been having in the conservative movement over the last few weeks, I felt that this might help. Besides, hey: flow charts. I’ve been meaning to get a program that would let me do flow charts*. Anyway, I hope this assists. Moe Lane *It’s who I am, and I have given myself permission to be all right with | Read More »
Get Out Your Checkbook NOW
Republican leaders in Washington, DC are signaling they will cave on the fight against Obamacare. Heck, they are signaling they are caving on everything. Isn’t it interesting that when Ted Cruz and Jim DeMint were touring America to fight against Obamacare, the popularity of the GOP was going up and the popularity of Obamacare was going down. But now that John Boehner and the Orange | Read More »
Dignity and self-interest
Rest assured, there will eventually be some happy ObamaCare customers. It’s comical, and highly significant, that the media can’t seem to find any after ten days of diligent searching, but they’ll be along eventually. It’s just about mathematically impossible to throw a trillion bucks around, and redistribute a trillion more, without someone on the candy end of the lollipop declaring themselves extremely satisfied with the | Read More »
Milton Wolf in Kansas: Another Conservative Primary Challenger
[Update: After foisting Kathleen Sebelius upon us in 2009, Pat Roberts just called upon her to resign. That is the power of primaries.] The biggest lesson to take out of this past month is that as much as we think we control the Republican Party, we represent such a small portion of its elected officials in Washington. We might desire to fight Obamacare, but ultimately, | Read More »
Yellen’s Fed Will Look Familiar
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss the official nomination of Janet Yellen as the next Fed Chair, why it’s likely the Bernanke philosophy will continue forever and if the depressed job market is temporary or more permanent.

The Fight Remains About Obamacare
I stepped out last night, away from politics, to be the celebrity chef at a cooking school. It was refreshing to tune out the political world. But when I checked into my hotel after eleven last night, there was a backlog of weepy, crying emails from people ready to surrender. Why? Because the GOP has gone from being not liked to being not liked? Because | Read More »
