GOP delays Obamacare, funds government: Let Obama shut it down
The GOP needs a government shutdown to re-establish GUT-bone fides with the American people. Republicans should allow President Obama to shut down the government on behalf of his Big Business and government employee friends to whom he has granted exemptions, subsidies and delays. Soon after his first inaugural in 2009, President Barack Obama demanded that health care reform be passed quickly to ensure a robust recovery | Read More »

John McCain: This isn’t the maverick you’re looking for – Part II
John McCain is the gift that keeps on giving . . . for Progressive Democrats. Hmm, Progressive Democrat. Is that being redundant? As we documented in Part I—we didn’t call it Part I at that time, but we should have known that the self-proclaimed maverick from Arizona would show how his true colors again—John McCain resorts to personal attacks against T.E.A. Party Republicans when faced | Read More »

Nancy Pelosi says the federal cupboard is bare, there are no more spending cuts to make
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi swung by CNN’s State of the Nation to assure America that austerity has run its course, the budget has been cut to the bone, and there isn’t a penny left to pinch from Uncle Sam’s moth-filled wallet. “The cupboard is bare. There’s no more cuts to make,” Pelosi gibbered. “It’s really important that people understand that. We all want to reduce | Read More »
Why has Bob Filner not been arrested? #waronwomen
Is there not enough evidence by now for a grand jury? Because there are several members of the National Women’s Veterans Association of America (NWVAA) that would no doubt like an answer to those two questions. Three weeks ago, as women began to step forward to reveal instances of sexual harassment, the veterans at the NWVAA began to compare notes. Tara Jones, the president of | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi must resign from the House over Bob Filner coverup.
I usually try not to put things that starkly, particularly since a Republican saying that a Democrat needs to resign is going to be (justifiably) taken with a grain of salt, but… this is ridiculous. “I blew the whistle on [Bob Filner's sexual harassment] two years ago to the Democratic Party leadership,” former Assemblywoman Lori Saldaña said. Saldaña said that in summer 2011 six prominent | Read More »
@NancyPelosi is being FAR too modest about her protection of FISA.
I admit, Nancy Pelosi talks a good game about how she hates FISA on general principles: When contacted, a Pelosi aide did not dispute the minority leader’s assertive role in influencing Democrats, but passed along a letter Pelosi sent to the president today raising skepticism about the NSA’s surveillance powers. “Dear Mr. President,” reads the letter. “Although the amendment was defeated 205-217, it is clear | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi’s (@nancypelosi) former colleague Bob Filner.
Apparently Nancy Pelosi doesn’t like it when people point out that fellow CPC founder Bob Filner is a former colleague: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) may have worked alongside former Rep. Bob Filner (D-Calif.) for 10 years in Congress, but now that he’s facing a string of sexual harassment allegations, she isn’t exactly rising to his defense. During a Thursday roundtable with reporters, Pelosi | Read More »
Organized Labor Gets Made To Obamacare
The Presidential Administration of Barack H. Obama always looks out for the little guy. They strike him center of mass. They then back up the yuppified SUV and run him over several more times. You gotta’ get the job done right to succeed in DC these days.
Now that was just plain cynical. It was also mean. So mean that three of sleaziest leaders of organized

thuggerylabor agree with my assessment. At least they agree with it as applied to the American Affordable Care Act of 2009. Having finally figured out what the right has been telling them for years, these wise men wrote leading minions of Emperor Barack I a missive to plead for a writ of indulgence with respect to the terrible, unworkable, destructive legislation that we all affectionately refer to as Obamacare.
Democrats switching to Republican Party over immigration reform
Even though they haven’t officially changed their party affiliation, some big name Democrats are using the immigration reform issue to defect to the Republican party. No longer concerned about putting another Democrat in the White House when Obama leaves, some of the party’s big guns have already gone on record in support of the Republicans in November, 2016. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “I believe that | Read More »
Human assets and liabilities
Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform does not think much of the Heritage Foundation’s recent projection of the total cost of amnesty. Heritage figured a taxpayer cost of about $6 trillion over the next 50 years. Norquist takes many issues with this figure, including some that aren’t really problems with the report itself – for example, he criticizes the way other people have presented its conclusions | Read More »
Hillary Watch 2016: What Difference Does It Make? None, My Dear…None At All
A few days before the May 8th Benghazi whistleblower hearings I heard several liberals spinning Democrat talking points on cable news saying that these House hearings were really about Republicans trying to build roadblocks to Hillary Clinton’s yet to be announced White House run in 2016. Of course I was appalled (but not surprised) that Democrats were trying to link Republicans attempting to learn the truth about an | Read More »
Wage Compression & Job Losses: The Crushing Impact Of A 24% Minimum Wage Hike
To be clear, Obama and the Democrats know precisely what they are doing. It’s not about doing what makes good common sense. Rather, Obama and the Democrats’ push to raise the minimum wage is all about politics.

Nancy Pelosi thinks a pay cut is below her ‘dignity.’
And this is why Nancy Pelosi will STAY House Minority Leader. It’s because of incredibly tin-eared statements like this. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers’ jobs. “I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi told reporters in the | Read More »
Breaking: Gang of Eight Crafts 7,000 Page (amnesty) Immigration Reform Package
Don’t worry about what’s in it for now. The Senate and House will have to pass it to see what’s in it. (That was the wisdom from on high ala Nancy Pelosi — she promised everyone that that would be the only way they could get the dang thing done and out of the way.) And did you hear about the wonderful new era of | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi comes out strongly for… limiting federal court jurisdiction over the states?
No, really: when asked a question about the debt ceiling/so-called “fiscal cliff” today Nancy Pelosi decided to respond by talking about how she was on the side of the Eleventh Amendment. For those of you who need reminding, that’s the one that limits the ability of federal courts to permit private citizens in one state from suing other states as a whole (they can still | Read More »
