The Un-President-ed Lies of Barack Obama
So Our Deceiver-In-Chief seems to believe the latest reporting on Obamacare involves “unprecedented scare tactics.” This is garbage. This administration has involved nothing but scare tactics since the day it took office. Anything less may have allowed a crisis or three to go to waste. I think were all a little sick of hearing about how each new sunrise is unprecedented. It’s as if Barack Obama spent his entire tenure as a Harvard Law Review Editor and only remembered one quarter-dollar word that was longer than three syllables.Read More »

Obama administration defies Senate on UN arms trade treaty.
Check with your former colleagues, Secretary Kerry: there was no point to signing this treaty, because it will not be ratified.

[snip] “This treaty is already dead in the water in the Senate, and | Read More »
In a battle between Ted Cruz and Harry Reid, we must stand with Senator Cruz
In a battle between Ted Cruz and Harry Reid, we must stand with Senator Cruz. Last week, House Republicans overwhelmingly passed legislation that defunds ObamaCare while keeping the government open and running. Now it is time for the Senate to do the same. Republicans want to keep the government running. Democrats claim they want the same, but they aren’t acting like it. By denouncing the | Read More »
As the astonishing TV show “Breaking Bad” reaches its conclusion, there have been many fine efforts to dissect the morality and philosophy of the show, with Jonah Goldberg’s lengthy dissertation at National Review a standout. It’s a testament to the brilliant writing and acting on the show to find so much thoughtful commentary. The main character, Walter White – as masterfully portrayed by Bryan Cranston – | Read More »
#MakeDCListen: Stand With Ted Against Obamacare
Senator Ted Cruz has fulfilled his election promise to do everything it takes to stop Obamacare. To that end, he has commenced a talking filibuster against the budget CR, which Harry Reid plans to use as a conduit for reinserting funding to Obamacare. This is real simple. We are at the end of the line. Anyone who thinks that, under the false hope of winning | Read More »
The House has passed a bipartisan bill to accomplish two goals that are in line with the will of the American people: (a) end the ObamaCare train wreck by defunding it and (b) keep the government open and running. Now it’s up to the Senate to do the same. Republicans want to keep the government running. Democrats claim they want the same, but they aren’t | Read More »

A Cruz Missile Launch, Like a Light, Shows the Cockroaches Scurrying
“Ted Cruz and Mike Lee have, whether they can muster the support or not in this round, ensured the GOP cannot begin collaborating with the Democrats to fix what the voters want repealed.” A curious moment happened on Fox News Sunday. Chris Wallace told Karl Rove that a number of Republicans in Congress had sent him opposition research on Ted Cruz once Fox announced Cruz | Read More »
Tech at Night: Stop awarding trivial patents. Deregulation is the opposite of picking sides.
Tech at Night on a Monday is always an odd thing. Weekends tend to be pretty slow, since much of what I cover is happening in government and industry, but Monday’s also when all that pent-up weekend stuff comes out. Monday’s also when things get announced, that people didn’t want to bury on a Friday.
So Mondays are capable of being very busy posting days. But they’re also capable of being very slow. This is one of the latter Monday editions. Which is good for me since I’m very tired.
The new lie being told is that deregulation amounts to help from the government. Talk about turning the truth on its head. Regulation these days picks winners and losers. Deregulation lets things alone!Read More »
Going Bananas As The Fiscal Year Ends
I can imagine Inigo Montoya sipping his rum. He contemplates, then chuckles. He pulls a bit on his mustache as President Obama’s teleprompter bromides blare out of his television. “He uses this phrase banana republic.” Inigo muses. “I do not think he knows what it means.”
You can use the term in a number of ways. As catchy bits of jargon get run through the political mill until shopworn, it’s perhaps quite accurate of Montoya to question whether anyone knows what banana republic means. I tend to think their clothes are overrated. My wife, on the other hand, always appreciates a $100 gift card. All jesting aside, when the American author O. Henry invented Archuria, he had a very specific type of dystopia in mind.Read More »
Nancy Pelosi says the federal cupboard is bare, there are no more spending cuts to make
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi swung by CNN’s State of the Nation to assure America that austerity has run its course, the budget has been cut to the bone, and there isn’t a penny left to pinch from Uncle Sam’s moth-filled wallet. “The cupboard is bare. There’s no more cuts to make,” Pelosi gibbered. “It’s really important that people understand that. We all want to reduce | Read More »
