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 »
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 »
The Solution to Syria … for Now
There is a straightforward (if difficult) solution to the current chemical weapons crisis. It requires both diplomacy and politics. Diplomacy The World’s leaders will be gathered in St. Petersburg, Russian Federation the end of this week. Behind closed doors, both the United States and France should offer a rapprochement: “Both the US and Russia have experience destroying chemical weapons stocks, but we have little influence | Read More »
This is “Read My Lips” All Over Again
During the 1988 Republican Convention, then Vice President George H. W. Bush uttered a phrase that would destroy his Presidency — “Read my lips, no new taxes.” Just two years later, voters realized they had read a lie on President Bush’s lips. He negotiated a budget agreement with Democrats in the United States Congress that raised taxes. Republicans in the House of Representatives rallied against | Read More »

Dear Congress, Your Bosses Are Calling And They Are Pissed.
Dear Members of Congress, Please remember you are NOT at the top of the org chart, WE THE PEOPLE are at the top. You are not there to dictate to us, you are there to serve on our behalf. You are there at the people’s will. You are there because enough people in your districts and states believed in you enough to elect you. When | Read More »
The road from Republic to Dictatorship is paved with “good intentions”, like Obama’s Obamacare delays…
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a watershed piece of legislation in American history. Based on the 15th Amendment, it outlawed discrimination based on racial, ethnic, religious and gender criteria. You probably don’t realize it, but it’s likely that you encounter aspects of the Civil Rights Act on a regular basis. When you apply for a job, a mortgage, join a club, stay in | Read More »
The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 50: ObamaCare Proponents Want Exemptions, Capitalism Saving Detroit, and Judge Mandates Same-Sex Marriage in Ohio
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. I’m at half a hundred episodes with this one. Another big milestone. The lawmakers who passed the bill and the unions who promoted the bill all want exemptions from complying with the bill. “The bill”, of course, is ObamaCare(tm). But I thought that the more people who were a part | Read More »
Congressional Outreach for Today and Tomorrow
Accountable Congress has done amazing work chronicling all the town halls and opportunities to reach out to members of Congress over August. Few groups have performed as well as them in documenting activities. They should serve as a model for every other group out there in getting this data out to Americans. It is very clear that members of Congress, regardless of party, do not | Read More »
Duck Dynasty star to run for Congress in LA-5?

Congress’ fiduciary duty to repeal ObamaCare
As I was putting together the latest roundup of horrible ObamaCare news, I found myself wondering how Congress could reconcile a failure to repeal or defund this disaster with their basic fiduciary duty to the American taxpayer. I know this will sound hopelessly quaint, but the government is supposed to be a careful steward of our public treasury. The treasury is filled with property confiscated | Read More »
SOURCES: NRSC and DSCC Declare Truce on Obamacare Exemption for Staffers
Sources in the Senate tell me that, on orders from senior Senate leaders, the NRSC and DSCC, the two groups responsible for electing Republicans and Democrats in the Senate, have declared a truce over the Office of Personnel Management (“OPM”) exemption of Capitol Hill staff from one of the provisions of Obamacare. In other words, Republican Leaders have agreed the NRSC will not use this | Read More »
The Categorical Imperative Should Be Applied to ObamaCare.
1. Ethics. the rule of Immanuel Kant that one must do only what one can will that all others should do under similar circumstances.
2. the unconditional command of conscience.
The United States Government stores a bunch of silly documents written maybe 230 years ago. I’m not sure why. The writing is well-nigh illegible and Ezra Klien assures us that people just don’t get documents written over 100 years ago. They should recycle the paper. The US Government certainly doesn’t believe all the silly things written in the Declaration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,…” Seriously?
Bill S., a fellow Frontpage Writer at RS.com, offers us a flagrant example of just how much of a joke our current Presidential Administration considers the words from the Declaration that I cited above. Apparantly, if the government official in question works for a member of The United States Congress then implying that any of them are created equal will get you served with a Writ of YAFKM.* They certainly are not created equally when OPM bills them for their health plans. As you can read below, some people are created more equal and will be receiving a discount that the rest of us just aren’t getting.

Boehner Rule could accommodate Lee’s de-funding Obamacare
If the Speaker of the House is serious about his insistence that any bill raising the debt ceiling must include spending cuts equal to the amount of new debt the federal government is allowed to incur, then GOP establishment hues and cries against the supposed recklessness of Sen. Mike Lee’s insistence that the next budget fund all government programs except for Obamacare should also be | Read More »
Rising to the occasion, Weiner won’t pull out
Fading faster than his rise in the polls for New York City mayor, former congressman Anthony Weiner has plummeted to fourth place in the Democratic primary field, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released late Tuesday. With over 20 declared candidates for mayor, more than have of those surveyed – 53 percent – suggest Weiner should drop out of the race. Weiner – who first rose to national stardom | Read More »
