Robert Gates: Traitor Or Patriot? Erickson And Kurtz Discuss
Last night, Redstate’s own Erick Erickson appeared on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor and discussed whether or not Robert Gates’ explosive new book is a betrayal of President Obama and/or is damaging to this country.
Kurtz refers to the contents of the book as a betrayal, and suggests that this type of memoir hampers the ability of the President to do his job. O’Reilly asks if it is not patriotic to let the American people know exactly how the President is dealing with vital issues. …

Obama proposes education mandates his own education can’t meet
In yet another cycle of what’s good for the government goose is not good for you, President Obama’s Department of Education proposes rules for private-sector colleges that his own education at Harvard Law would fail to meet. The new leaner and meaner rules require that students graduate with less than 12% debt-to-income ratio or debt-to-discretionary-income ratio lower than 30%. When President Obama graduated from Harvard Law, he financed that, | Read More »
Women Beware of HRC
Although Hillary Clinton is out trying to recoup the women’s votes she had in 2008, it might behoove her avid followers to review this woman’s sordid past. One can hide and run for a while but sooner or later the past does catch up with us. It’s not propaganda about the murders, suicides and accidental deaths of her business associates, bundlers and colleagues that plague | Read More »
Barack Obama’s broken window economy
It’s awfully strange to see a President simultaneously claim that his economy is (finally) on the mend… while simultaneously demanding yet another “emergency” unemployment extension. Obamanomics is a perpetual unemployment emergency. Five years on, the American economy still can’t rise from its sick bed and pull the IV tube out of its arm. Heckuva job, Obama voters! Of course, they all think it’s George Bush’s | Read More »
Obama delays the budget process yet again
Image credit: Office of Management and Budget 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” | Read More »
@BarackObama decides NOT to be the adult in the room wrt unemployment insurance extension.
You can tell by the fact that he’s demanding here that the House simply agree to allocate the money for another ‘temporary’ three-month extension of unemployment benefits for people unemployed past 26 weeks. The GOP is not adverse to extending benefits, by the way: but the House is fairly insistent that this spending be offset by an equivalent amount of cuts.
There Are Simply Not Enough Moderates To Take On The Tea Party
So, as most of you know, I lean towards the Tea Party. They’re the best thing to happen to the GOP – and American politics – since the Goldwater insurgency in ’64, but I digress. As the shutdown drama subsided last Fall, many on the left – as usual – were relishing in the demise of the Tea Party. Then, Obamacare had a meltdown. Now, | Read More »

Prominent anti-war loon Michael Scheuer calls for assassination of @BarackObama.
Umm. NO. I am reluctant to provide the direct link: David Frum (!) has the details. Essentially, Scheuer was babbling about current US/UK policy, and finished up his not-actually-incoherent* screaming by quoting Seventeenth Century English republican Algernon Sydney, who got the chop** from Charles II for… well. Depends on who you ask. To be fair, the treason charges were dubious; to be equally fair, Sydney | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Poster Child for Socialism
We can all agree that Hillary Rodham Clinton is no stranger to murder, in fact murder, suicide and unexplained accidents follow this woman like the plague. Don’t forget Mary Mahoney, former White House intern murdered just before she went public about sexual harassment in the White House by yours truly B. Clinton. Most of us remember the suicide story that was spun about Vince Foster, | Read More »
George Soros – Ready for 2014
Josh Wolf, MoveOn’s Director of Operations who usually works behind the scenes collecting money sent me an email which will serve as a sneak peak for what the Liberals have planned for 2014. Josh reminds me of a parrot begging for a cracker – his only reason for contacting me was money. He asked me for a small donation because he claims MoveOn is a | Read More »
A Few Good Men
It’s rather difficult to realize that the Old Democratic Party believed in the Jeffersonian Democracy – they believed in our Constitution, very limited executive authority, state’s rights and civil liberties. They realized that our economy would flourish with limited business and commerce regulations – they believed in very limited control of businesses and commerce. Those were the good old days when some staunch Patriots weren’t | Read More »
Memento: The story of liberals who can’t seem to learn from reality…
If you’ve never seen the movie Memento, I would highly recommend it… The main character, Leonard, is suffering from anterograde amnesia – the inability to create new memories – the result of a violent attack. Unable to create new memories, Leonard uses tattoos and notes to help him find the person he believes is responsible for the last thing he does remember, his wife’s murder. | Read More »
Benghazi – Murders, Cover Ups and Smokescreens
Will the Benghazi murders of our four brave American men ever be solved? Probably not because the key players have snubbed their noses at Americans pretty much saying, “catch me if you can.” Darrell Issa has fallen prey to Washington politics anyway you cut it. This in no way means Darrell Issa has been a willing victim of our defunct judicial system, but it does | Read More »
Obama base turns against ObamaCare
Obama base turns against ObamaCare A new CNN poll finds support for the ever unpopular ObamaCare has dropped to another all-time low. According to CNN, nearly all of the increased opposition is coming from women. This confirms the important trend we reported a month ago: “Opposition to Obamacare rose six points among women, from 54% in November to 60% now, while opinion of the new law remained | Read More »
@BarackObama extending #obamacare deadline more or less indefinitely at this point.
Eventually, they’re just going to announce that everybody’s deemed to have been in compliance with Obamacare’s individual mandate tax. It’s the logical progression to this nonsense, really. The Obama administration said Tuesday that it would provide more time for people to sign up for health insurance if they could show that they missed the Tuesday deadline for applications because of problems with the federal health | Read More »
