Tech at Night: Weekend Update
I’m not going to say I’m tired of writing about Title II Reclassification, the scheme promoted by the extreme left to place the Internet under 1930s-era regulation, since the courts have slapped down twice previous Net Neutrality attempts. But I’m running out of ways to say the power grab, now backed by the President, is a terrible idea that attempts to dig deeper down the | Read More »
Obama’s Justice Department declares war on school choice
Now that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has effectively gelded the Wisconsin teacher’s mafia and limited its ability to extort dues from members that become the mother’s milk of the Democrat machine in Milwaukee, Barack Obama’s Department of Justice has waded into the fray with an attempt to browbeat Wisconsin into killing a vibrant school choice program. Why? Follow the money. If you kill school choice | Read More »
You Are Being Played
I oppose comprehensive immigration reform. I think Congress always fails as comprehensive legislation. But, long time readers know I am squishier on the immigration issue than many RedStaters. There are portions of what the President proposed last night that I support in principle and, frankly, was surprised by how mild some of the actions were, given the run up to the announcement. But whatever I | Read More »
Republicans Will Vote to Fund President Obama’s Amnesty. Then Try to Take It All Back.
You people are being played by the GOP. Remember when the GOP wanted to raise the debt ceiling, but claim they would oppose it. They voted to raise it, but then Congress could vote to stop the raise. The President could then veto the stoppage and the debt ceiling would raise. But the GOP could claim they opposed him. That is happening again. This time | 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 »
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 »
Obama looks to cut deals with McConnell: Presidential delusion or Senatorial duplicity?
Politico has an interesting story titled Obama turns to McConnell to secure his legacy. The thrust of the article is that Obama has been reduced to depending upon the kindness of strangers: It’s not as if Obama and others in the White House have forgotten their history with McConnell, but he looks better than other potential partners. The president’s relationship with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s | Read More »
Against Being A Yutz: What was Jonathan Gruber Thinking?!
Dumb Enough To Tell The Truth…. Jonathan Gruber’s new role in Washington, DC could be described by a recent hit song from Gotye. Now he’s just somebody that they used to know. It wasn’t always that way…. It was 5 April 2006. The Jolly, Old Brookings Institute gathered their Illuminati to discuss how they would save us all from our own, | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama picking winners and losers with Net Neutrality
I’ve suggested that FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler may not like the intimidation tactics of the extreme Net Neutrality left, going to harass him at his home. As a result, he may yet ignore the President’s recent suggestion to pick winners and losers with Title II Reclassification Net Neutrality.
If Only Obama Would Speak It Into Being
Leon already wrote about this polling earlier. More Americans dislike Obamacare. Along comes this epic tweet from Glenn Thrush of the Politico, a member of the Circle of Jerks™, formerly known as the Gang of 500, which members of the Circle of Jerks themselves came up with (that’d be the DC-NYC political press): Enrollment booming and Gallup says ObamaCare approval hits new low… Obama's failure | Read More »
Obama denies Gruber as yet another video surfaces
At the G20 meeting in Brisbane, Australia, Barack Obama was finally asked a question about Obamacare guru Jonathan Gruber’s rather gleeful comments detailing how Congress, the CBO, and the American people on how Obamacare was intended to function (short story, it is performing exactly as planned): ED HENRY, FOX NEWS: At your Burma townhall a couple of days ago, you tried to inspire young leaders | Read More »
Parrots, Whores, and Clowns: Barack Obama’s Press Corps
The press leans left. That is an objective fact. Trace the roots of many reporters’ careers or that of their spouses or now, in some cases, their children, and you will find they are ideological brethren with the Democrats’ base. This is why they can herald the activist left’s defeat of Joe Lieberman in the 2006 Connecticut Democratic Primary as the rise of grassroots democracy, | Read More »
