The Last Firewall

    Is the United States of America too gob-smacking ignorant as a nation and a people to deserve the benefits of a continued constitutional republic? Are we a people worthy of self-rule, or should we just get Benito in here to make the gosh-darn trains run on time? I’m afraid Representative Conyers’ continued tenure in the House of Representatives sheds far more light on the uglier | Read More »

    The *true* John Conyers scandal.

    Background: back over Thanksgiving weekend John Conyers III (the son of Rep. John Conyers) reported a theft of computers and concert tickets from the car that he was using.  The problem?  John Conyers III was using the car unlawfully: it was leased to his father’s Congressional office as an official vehicle, and Conyers was not using it in an official capacity.  And it wasn’t anything | Read More »

    An Academic, A Corporatist, A Marxist, and a Clown

    We’ve all become quite familiar with the leftist/collectivist tactic of having a ‘panel’ of experts to discuss an issue.  The ‘panel’ is supposed to be an array of viewpoints in order to have surrogates from differing sides.   Inevitably, the Democratic spokesmodels in the media assemble a mix of a poodle-Republican, like David Brooks, a liberal, a progressive, and a Marxist.  They then parse the issue | Read More »

    The “Good and Welfare” Clause, by John Conyers

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman, John Conyers (D-MI), defends Obamacare’s constitutionality with the “good and welfare” clause. You know… THAT clause… Res ipsa loquitur. h/t Allahpundit at Hotair.

    Conyers ruled indigent

    Congressman John Conyers Proves That This Congress Needs An Enema!

    I appreciate what John Conyers adds to America’s national debate. He speaks openly, without thought to even his own reputation, about the things that burden his vastly futile mind. We learn from Congressman Conyers, without filter and without distraction, exactly what American Leftists truly believe and what the American Leftist truly is as a human being. Thus, I find it difficult to take Congressman Conyers | Read More »

    Why Can’t Johnny Read? (Is the Death of Federalism Also The Death of Good, Representative Government?)

    “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Conyers.

    “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

    It’s an interesting question, pre-supposing literacy on the part of Congressman Conyers. What if the bills before our legislature have hit the point of ineluctability? What if a member of Congress is intelligent, as opposed to being John Conyers, and still can’t get through one of these Porknibus Spending Fiascos without a two-week sabbatical and the OJ Simpson Legal Defense Team? Can our national government still effectively function?

    Conyers wife pleads guilty to felony

    I don’t guess we can expect too much coverage of this given anyone not doing a story about Michael Jackson would be writing about Mark Sanford. She and her hubby are the wrong party after all. Detroit City Council President Pro Tem Monica Conyers pleaded guilty this morning to conspiring to commit bribery and is free on personal bond.
