The world is a strange place, and often times we see some of the strangest things getting worshipped as gods that bestow their graces upon their idolators. The Left is prone to this – having moved into a secularist worldview, they give up God and turn toward things of the world. They worship the environment, government, and leaders who espouse their views like Barack Obama. | Read More »
After having his leadership repudiated by his own caucus yesterday, last night Speaker Boehner turned to his best friend in the House, minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)6%, for a life line. Using a procedural motion to suspend the rules, which required two-thirds vote, Boehner passed the Orwellian named Protecting Volunteer Firefighters and Emergency Responders Act by a vote of 357-60. | Read More »
Democracy In The Hands of Knaves and Fools Listen my five or so Constant Readers. Draw nearer still as I enlighten you in The Gospel of Post-modern contained within the hallowed verses of The Book of Harf. If only we could just find all the jihadists employment at Sports Authority or Walmart. They’d happily ring up our orders, accept a minimum | Read More »
Jeb Bush’s campaign is calling Dick Tuck to see if he’s behind the debacle he suffered at CPAC 2015. Gateway Pundit confirmed that Jeb bussed in supporters so it wouldn’t look like everyone in the room hated him (or worse, left). But it didn’t matter, because they booed him anyway. And they left. And Slate got hold of the emails from Fritz Brogan | Read More »
I know what you’re thinking: We all heard about FCC’s controversial, party-line vote to regulate the Internet under 1930s-era phone regulations, as Verizon has so successfully mocked to the annoyance of the far left. The “Title II Reclassification” deem-and-pass maneuver has done many things, but it didn’t outright socialize the Internet yet. No, that was actually another vote this week.
What is it about prominent critics of Vladimir Putin and ending up dead? Just to name a few, there’s Anna Politkovskaya, Viktor Yushchenko**, and Sergei Yushenkhov.* Now, we can add former deputy prime minister, opposition party leader, and liberal (in the old sense) Boris Nemtsov. Just one days before a opposition rally is scheduled to take place, he was shot four times from a passing | Read More »
First of all, let me say that Net Neutrality is a bad policy that is a) unfair to the ISPs and b) likely to lead to higher rates and lower performance for Internet service. Republicans ought to seek to overturn it as soon as possible either legislatively or through changing the composition of the FCC. With that out of the way, to the extent that | Read More »
Here it is: When our great grandchildren are dealing with the effects of climate change, they will look at this and hate us: http://t.co/YBv5vM8Kzu — Ezra Klein (@ezraklein) February 27, 2015 This is Vox’s piece by Brad Plumer depicting Senator James Inhofe tossing a snowball on the Senate floor. He then segues into more pretty charts showing data from the Climate Change Institute and NOAA. | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss the FCC vote to reclassify broadband internet into Title II, the inevitable legal challenges and what this means for the future of the web.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about how Obama’s budget contained a $22 billion student loan bailout to cover a massive shortage of funds for the Department of Education Federal Student Loan program. Because the program is categorized as a “credit program”, due to a “quirk in the budget process for credit programs, the department can add the $21.8 billion to the deficit automatically, without | Read More »
There is perhaps nothing more craven and disgusting than a man (or woman) who believes in nothing more substantial than their own self-aggrandizement put in the position of having to make a principled decision. That is what we’re seeing in the House of Representatives. House Speaker John Boehner will move a vote today on a bill that will fund the Department of Homeland Security for three | Read More »
First Barack Obama decided to overreach and extend amnesty by executive order. One judge in Texas has told him no and Republicans are hanging their hat on that judge’s order. Then the FCC decided to declare internet a public utility. They overreached, rushed it through, and committed to as little transparency as possible to make it happen. Congress did nothing on this front and the | Read More »
