Obama delays the budget process yet again
A new report from Congressional Quarterly suggests that ObamaCare isn’t the only item being delayed in the White House these days. Apparently the official White House budget proposal, which is required by law to be submitted to Congress no later than the first Monday of February, is on track to be “at least a month behind” schedule: From the CQ Morning Briefing: WHITE HOUSE BUDGET DELAYED: The | Read More »
Another Undocumented Democrat Comes out of the Shadows
In an effort to create a bold alternative to the Democrats, grassroots conservatives have risen up over the years to throw out some confused Republicans in primary elections. Many of these Republicans either vote with Democrats, work behind the scenes with the more aggressive party, or bring a feather to a gun fight – all but ensuring that the other side wins. Yet, whenever we | Read More »

Tech at Night: Julius Genachowski goes into private equity. Peter King vs Rand Paul.
They told us for years that Mitt Romney was a terrible person because of his ties to private equity. Now Julius Genachowski, Obama’s first FCC chair is going into private equity, and not a peep from the radicals.
Erick Erickson’s already covered all the reasons Peter King should be excluded from polite political society, but I just want to remind as well that Rand Paul’s grandstanding isn’t all that great. Snowden is an unrepentant criminal and traitor and it’s a shame that Paul is just sucking up to his father’s crazier fans. I guess he really wants their campaign donations more than he wants his dignity.

Antarctica Freezes Over Despite the Global Warming Jabberwocky
The Akademic Shokalskiy ventured forth to show the world that there just wasn’t enough ice around Antarctica during the Austral Summer. This would demonstrate beyond any reasonable doubt that Earth had a fever. We then, yea verily would have to put up with self-congratulatory lectures from the mighty Nobel prize winners like Al Gore or Michael Mann.*
Then reality intruded when the Akademic Shokalskiy got stuck in the imaginary ice.** China’s Xue Long attempted to be neighborly and pull the benighted Climate Scientologists out of the ice which the IPCC proved could not possibly exist in an atmosphere with rising CO2 levels. Xue Long got bogged-down amidst the torpor of steaming climate change and won’t be going any further south this summer without a friendly assist.

Puncturing our health care illusions
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has been trying to play along with ObamaCare. Alas, his son drew the “Go Directly to Medicaid Jail” card, inexplicably diverted into that mournful welfare program by the supposedly exceptional Kentucky exchange system. Granted, “exceptional” status is a pretty low bar to clear when it comes to ObamaCare exchanges, but Kentucky was supposed to have one of the better ones… and | Read More »
Peter King Raised Money for Terrorists While They Were Murdering American Allies
John McCain really captures the essence of Peter King. There is little in Mr. King’s singularly unimpressive legislative record to suggest that he is motivated by anything other than a compulsion to utter provocative sound bites. I have never met a single other Republican who felt that Mr. King spoke for the party or for any Republican other than himself. Indeed, the only Republican organization | Read More »
The Coming Amnesty Offensive and the Need to Clean House
House GOP leaders have made it crystal clear that it is their intention to pass an amnesty bill based upon every liberal premise of the immigration issue. The only question is timing. Conservatives must sound the alarm and acknowledge that engaging in the upcoming primaries is the only way to preempt Obamacare 2.0 in the lame duck years of Obama’s tenure. When talking with many | Read More »

Reboot and Recommit for 2014. Support @NikkiHaley.
As many of you settle back into your office chairs this morning, understand this: the left still dominates the right in online fundraising. They are able to fund and support candidates online in a way we can only dream about. And they intend to harness the power of the online left to support candidates in states around the country. One of those states is going | Read More »

Creating a Constitutional Litmus Test
It’s understandably hard to focus our attention directly on all the fronts the radical left has opened up in their truculent effort to transform our Republic. They are erasing our borders, disrupting the markets, infringing on our liberties, appeasing our enemies, and taking over major sectors of the economy. Most of us would like to direct the lion’s share of our energy towards the economic | Read More »
