Air Force Waaaaaaaaaaahhhhh
Air Force One turned to Air Force Waaaaahhhh yesterday in Atlanta. Barack Obama tied up lunch time traffic in the Peach State once again while he milked it for money. During a public speech, President Obama formally abdicated his role as Commander in Chief to become Chief Victim. Those dirty Republicans are outspending him, he cried to a sympathetic audience. In fact, this may be | Read More »
Obama Terminates 287(g) Immigration Enforcement Program. Anyone Home?
December 2010 was not ancient history; it was a mere 18 months ago. On December 8, 2010, using the proper legal channels to change our immigration laws, the Democrat-controlled House passed the DREAM Act. Just 4.5% of Republicans supported it, even though it represented a “long-term solution” and was introduced in Congress. A week later, the bill failed to win 60 votes in the Senate, | Read More »
Tech at Night: The First Amendment shouldn’t prevent regulation of the Internet?
Hey, digital libertarians? Hope you’re ready to move on from Barack Obama, His administration thinks the First Amendment is an obstacle to greater government on the Internet, and not something that must be respected or protected by the courts when it gets in the way. This of course turns the First Amendment on its head. I guess in the Democrat parallel world Tim Wu and | Read More »

Obama for America stiffing Durham, NH for… $30,000. Wait, WHAT?
The very short version: President Barack Obama is scheduled to make a campaign speech on Monday, in the town of Durham, NH. This will cost the town an estimated sixteen to thirty thousand dollars in additional overtime for cops and fire officials and whatnot. The town is taking the position that while they’d be happy to eat the cost for a Presidential visit, a campaign | Read More »
Good advice for Mitt Romney by Mickey Kaus.
To wit: show the American people that Mitt Romney’s just… a human being, like everybody else. Not that Romney should pretend to anything that he’s not. As Mickey put it: Note that this does not require that Romney show he’s a man of the people, down with NASCAR etc. No pork rinds are required. In fact, trying desperately to appear non-upperclass is likely to reinforce | Read More »
RICO Suit Against Powerful & Politically-Connected Chicago Teamster Bosses Moves Forward
In the seedy world of the Chicago unions and the political pawns they control, there is a family dynasty whose name is at the top of heap in terms of power and political muscle. That is the Coli family. Without the blessings of the Coli family and the union they control, Teamsters Local 727 and Joint Council 25 (the governing body of 20 Teamster locals | Read More »
Romney refused to take Obama’s immigration bait
Mitt Romney has outfoxed the Obama Campaign and its main stream media allies. As explained by Breitbart’s John Nolte, Obama’s extralegal scheme to grant amnesty/immunity to certain “younger” illegal aliens was a clever attempt set to trap Romney in a treacherous catch-22 position: This was the plan: 1. Obama releases the news on Friday in order to affect the Sunday talk shows. (Team Obama also | Read More »
Congressman Schweikert Takes a Stand Against Obama’s Illegal Amnesty
We often hear pro-abortion activists caution conservative judicial nominees that they must follow the decision of Roe v Wade, irrespective of their personal views on abortion. Yet we never hear these same activists warn Democrats to follow laws they personally disdain. Roe v Wade was merely a Supreme Court decision; our immigration laws were duly passed by Congress. Even those who embrace open borders and | Read More »
Twenty Inconvenient Years for the Left’s Media Spin on Obamacare
The year was 1990. Then Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr. of Delaware and Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina introduced S. 3266, the Crime Control Act of 1990. The law, introduced on October 27, 1990, sailed through Congress in one day. It passed the Senate by unanimous consent before 5 o’clock that evening. At 11:56 p.m. the House of Representatives approved it by 313-1. It | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama’s FCC transparency failure, video regulatory failure, Google censorship
Instead of the transparent Obama administration we were promised, from the Obama FCC, what we have here is failure to communicate. We need to continue to cut the FCC out of the loop, the old regulations are harmful when it comes to retransmission consent and the whole cable company/local broadcaster nexus. Clear it out, deregulate, restore the free market, and the public will benefit.

Energy Policy *IS* Grassroots Politics
Compare and contrast these maps. First, the “undervote” by county in the recent Pennsylvania Democratic Presidential primary. The numbers in each county represent the proportion of voters in a Democratic primary who selected “no candidate” rather than vote for the incumbent, Barack Obama. Now, the distribution map of the Marcellus Shale:
Obama for America showing no signs of getting the point about 2012.
These three quotes seem to pretty much sum up Team Obama’s wonderful, wonderful attitude towards this election: The campaign has an almost mystical confidence in sophisticated technology and in its organization, assets that only matter in a razor-tight race. Further, these other strategists say, the Obama camp is no more justified in its belief that this campaign is like a rerun — with the uniforms | Read More »
Our Choice in November: The Flipper Vs. the Flopper
Last week ended with a big bang as Obama announced that he would no longer enforce our immigration laws and deport many of those who came here illegally. What about the fact that Congress never vitiated those laws and, in fact, actually rejected the Dream Act? That’s just a minor problem for a man who thinks he can make laws without Congress. But did Obama | Read More »
We’ve Reached the Penultimate Jimmy Carter Moment of the Obama Presidency
Chris Cillizza made me laugh out loud last evening when I read his column, which opens with a question: “Is it possible for a president — any president — to succeed in the modern world of politics?” There is nothing new under the sun, including this question. On January 19, 2010, I wrote about the ungovernability of the American Republic. At that time, Barack Obama | Read More »
