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.

Amnesty and the minimum wage make strange bedfellows
As amnesty becomes Barack Obama’s latest Bright Shiny Political Object, let’s not forget the previous one: hiking the minimum wage. The Obamanomics argument for minimum wage hike is that wealth redistribution creates jobs. Any law that forces money to disperse from The Few to The Many supposedly creates jobs, because The Many run out and spend it like crazy, creating bountiful opportunities for business formation | Read More »
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 »
Follow the Money: Keystone XL Pipeline
If we were taking a class on the impact of the 2014 midterm elections, it might be called Activism 101: Your vote matters. Certainly, the scramble of recent Congressional action (namely Senate action) on the Keystone XL Pipeline proposal is evidence that elected officials took notice of millions of voters holding them accountable through the blunt force of the ballot box. With a Louisiana Senate | Read More »
Obama immigration actions to be announced tomorrow
Via Reuters: President Barack Obama is set on Thursday to outline a controversial plan to relax U.S. immigration policy and grant relief from deportation to as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants in a go-it-alone move that will deepen a partisan divide with Republicans. Sources close to the administration said the rollout would include a televised speech by Obama on Thursday night laying out the | 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 »
