Media amnesia: Bill Clinton persuaded Senate Dems to pass Obamacare in 2009
The former president used the same ‘fix it later’ argument in November of 2009 to persuade reluctant faux Blue Dog Democrats to pass Obamacare after Majority Leader Harry Reid had twice failed to ram President Obama’s signature legislation through the U.S. Senate. Despite the past five years-and-counting of President Barack Hussein Obama’s serial prevarications including who drew red lines in Syria and how a quickly-passed stimulus bill | Read More »
Obama’s Thin Red Line[s]
President Obama deployed the teflon protocol yesterday. He said, “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line…my credibility’s not on the line. The international community’s credibility is on the line, and America and Congress’ credibility’s on the line.” Mr. President, you’re lying. Your red line for Syria has been mentioned in press briefings by Jay Carney – and it’s on your website. You | Read More »

Tech at Night: 4chan at it again. A little known but important CDA provision under attack?
Christopher Poole’s gang is at it again, as 4chan is attacking the family of another dead teenager. I guess ‘moot’ is amoral and doesn’t care where his money comes from. If he cared he’d have kicked these sorts of people off of his site by now, instead of giving them their own sandboxes to play with.
Time Warner and CBS come to an agreement. Remember: it’s government regulations that already existed that put Time Warner in a spot here, where they had to push hard to resist a sudden doubling of price by CBS. More regulations are not the answer here.

James Carville is Still Blaming Bush
It’s a tougher job these days, but James Carville still mans his post. He spins for the Democratic Administration. It matters not what that administration does or what he has to say in order to stay on point. James Carville spins for the Dems. His latest project involves spinning away the profound unpopularity of Barack Obama’s proposal to fire rockets and bombs at Syria for using chemical weapons to quash a rebellion against Bashir Al-Assad’s despotism. He shows the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of his bosses by doing what a Dem does when they run out of viable ideas: he blames George W. Bush.

Howard Dean: Warmongering for #Syria attack!
I’ve been doing this blogging thing since about… 2002 or 2003, depending on how you score things; so in a weird sort of way 2004 was my first Presidential election. It was certainly the first one where I was actually paying real attention about what was going on, particularly when it came to stuff that happened before Labor Day 2004 (which is when most people | Read More »
Yes, Alison Grimes Is An Empty Dress – With A Nice Disposition
Gasp! Brad Dayspring, Director of Communications for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said something sexist. He called Alison Grimes, the Democratic candidate running against Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell, an “empty dress.” Why? Well, she’s prevaricated – or stumbled – on key issues concerning Obamacare and Syria. Regardless, Dayspring got liberals foaming at the mouth over this statement, but are they really defending Grimes or hurting | Read More »

Kerry was for boots on the ground before he was against them
During yesterday’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the possible authorization of U.S. military action against the Syrian government, Secretary of State John Kerry got tripped up once again with his tendency to be consistently inconsistent. Kerry was asked by the Committee Chairman, New Jersey’s Democrat Senator Bob Menendez, whether the administration would accept a prohibition against having American boots on the ground. In response, | Read More »
On Syria: Not At This Time
For two years, President George W. Bush made a public case for an invasion of Iraq. He built public support, international support, and congressional support. His administration documented CIA intelligence on weapons of mass destruction, Saddam Hussein’s personal cheerleading over 9/11, the dictator attempting to assassinate President George H. W. Bush after the President had left office, Al Qaeda’s use of Iraq as a training | Read More »
Syria: A Romance
That did not take long. Less than a year ago, the Washington press corps looked likely to divorce Barack Obama. He had rocked their relationship with the Department of Justice probing Fox News’ James Rosen, the Associated Press, and others. But like Gollum and the precious, the Washington press corps has found separation too hard. Syria has reconciled the President and Court. With his decision | Read More »
Labor and Election Days Dropouts
If only Democrats celebrated non-government, non-union and non-Obama-crony labor on non-Labor Days. Five Labor Days after the housing bubble burst in the Fall of 2008 and Democrats’ February 2009 passage of President Barack Hussein Obama’s signature American Recovery and Reinvestment (“stimulus”) Act, less Americans hold jobs this Labor Day than were employed when he was first inaugurated at Noon, January 20, 2009. Long-term unemployment remains | Read More »

535 congressmen can’t fix Obama’s weak, incoherent foreign policy
Did over four months of begging the United Nations to authorize the invasion of Iraq aid in the discovery of the stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction that the U.N. had determined Saddam Hussein had in 1998 and which he had used many times? We didn’t think so. President Barack Hussein Obama now wants Congress to pre-approve U.S. military action designed to | Read More »
Just like that government accountability died a little more.
So the D.C. Court of Appeals has decided that who the President of the United States meets with is well, none of your damn business. In a decision that contains a level asshatedness not seen since the Obamacare decision, the Appeals Court unanimously decided that the logs of who visits the Oval Office is beyond the reach of the FOIA. Someone is going to have | Read More »
John Kerry doing the Full Ginsburg about #syria today.
How very last-minute of the man. And of Barack Obama, too. Two days after he made the Obama administration’s definitive case for attacking Syria, Secretary of State John Kerry will make the case for asking for congressional permission on the Sunday talk shows, a State Department aide said Saturday. The White House has dispatched Kerry to all five Sunday morning news programs to urge a | Read More »
The “Why Was @BarackObama Late?” Weekend Open Thread.
Aside from Barack Obama’s sudden Syria news conference it was, thankfully, a rather slow news day – you can tell that I’m getting old; ‘slow news day’ sounds like a really, really great idea to me right now – which makes it even odder that the President didn’t show up on time for his own presser. Again. I wonder why? Open thread. Moe Lane PS: | Read More »
I’m Honored To Be AFP Foundation’s Blogger Of The Year
From the diaries, by Erick Last night, I was honored by being the 2013 recipient of the Andrew Breitbart Award for Excellence in Online Activism and Investigative Reporting. Below are the remarks I gave last night, with a few additions that were cut due to time. Nevertheless, this award was possible due to the support of the many faces I see at these conferences every | Read More »
