The Ferguson protest movement: Ripe For The Plucking.
It’s like watching a horror movie, really. Admittedly, one where you’re not really emotionally invested in who lives and who dies, but there’s still that sense of Yeah, don’t go into the cellar. Yup, you went into the cellar. Fine, let’s get this over with. Here we go: The next move after expressing anger in the street is often the hard part for new civil | Read More »
Barack Obama Hangs Iraq Out To Dry Like The Wash
“We will need to retain some forces in Iraq and the region,” Obama said. “We’ll continue to strike at al-Qaeda in Iraq.” Obama made the point repeatedly: “In ending the war, we must act with more wisdom than we started it,” he said a month earlier. “That is why my plan would maintain sufficient forces in the region to target al-Qaeda within Iraq.”
The quote above was a strong position held by Candidate Obama during the 2007-2008 Democratic Presidential Primary. We now flash forward to 2014, because President Obama now has a golden opportunity to honor that pledge he made while he sought to establish himself as a credible steward of America’s commitments to the world. You see, Al Qaeda is still very much in Iraq and has taken up dominion over the City of Fallujah.

Ned Ryun is right: it’s time to fire Boehner. According to him, we only need 16 votes to eliminate Boehner from the speakership, striking a major blow for conservatism and making a giant leap towards retaking the GOP for the Right. This has become necessary due to Boehner’s recent declaration and acts of war against the conservative movement. Such impudence must not go unpunished! Unlike defeating | Read More »
Barack Obama throws Elizabeth Warren under the bus.
Or, as Jake Tapper/Jake Tapper’s editor* put it, “President Obama Picks Former Ohio Attorney General to Run Consumer Bureau, Bypassing Woman Who First Came Up With the Idea.” I agree with Ed Morrissey: that’s not really the headline that you want to see in this kind of awkward situation. I mocked the elevated importance that the Online Left has given both Warren and the Consumer | Read More »
As if Aaron Burr were President
Obama and the Betrayal of America The promise that the Bush-McCain weary heard was that there were no red states and no blue states, but just the United States. The stimulus would arrest the recession and keep unemployment under 8%. ObamaCare would lower the deficit and you could keep your own insurance if you wanted. Foreign nations would love the anti-cowboy, and oh yes, anyone | Read More »
Democrat Lame Duck follies are a moral violation against America
Some things are just wrong, even if they are legal. Some things are dishonorable to such a degree that the perpetrators ought to be scorned and shunned from civil society. The perpetrators of the 2010 Lame Duck follies — chief among them Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi — are reprobates of that order. The rest of them are scarcely better for having lent | Read More »

And then we all shall have to do something. At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will | Read More »
Obama Administration believes Russia
when they say that, "Of course we’ll help you with that Iranian problem…..We’ll get them to put away the nukes. We’ve only invested millions in helping them develop nuclear power….Don’t worry about it. The check is in the mail. And we have a bridge to sell you. I promise not to c…" You get the idea. So…..Obama has betrayed two allies, Poland and the Czech | Read More »
coming back to the fold.
As a George HW Bush era young Republican, I suffered the slings and arrows of being a young conservative. After attending a top private liberal arts college and attending a 1st tier east coast law school (as well as coming out of the closet as a gay man), my views softened and I learned how to appreciate the liberal perspective. After returning to Colorado, I | Read More »
He did it again. But no Republican should have been surprised. Sen. Arlen Specter has a long history of stabbing his party’s conservatives in the back. Ronald Reagan was one of the first to feel the point of his blade: At the end of his first term, he voted against the Reagan Administration in two bitter, losing battles: to make William Bradford Reynolds associate attorney general, and Jefferson Sessions | Read More »
Barack Obama admits that tax increases–even on rich people–hurts the economy: President-elect Barack Obama may consider delaying a campaign promise – to roll back tax cuts on high-income Americans – as part of his economic recovery strategy, two aides said on Sunday. David Axelrod, the Obama campaign strategist who was chosen to be a senior White House adviser, was asked if the tax cuts could | Read More »
McCain’s Rodents of Unusual Size
Just wanted to make a brief observation regarding the Palin smears coming from the McCain camp. I’ve commented before that my personal experience working for a McCain organization in D.C. in the 1990s gave me the impression that McCain was a snake and the people he surrounded himself with were mostly (as the Princess Bride put it) “Rodents of Unusual Size.” The cowardly (dare I | Read More »
The hidden issue that will elect a President this year
According to Rasmussen Reports; Gov’t Ethics & Corruption is considered very important by 67% of respondents, somewhat important by 23%, not very important by 6%, and not important at all by just 1%.
