Obama Donor Investigating Obama’s IRS Political Scandal is Scandal Unto Its Own
Imagine the outrage and media frenzy that would ensue if Governor Chris Christie were to appoint one of his major donors to investigate his own political retribution scandal. It would be unfathomable.
Yet, that is exactly what President Obama’s DOJ just did in the IRS targeting scandal.

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.

Obama Administration Wants Religious Employers to Drop Their Insurance Plans?
Buried deep in the Obama DOJ’s response to Justice Sotomayor’s eleventh hour emergency stay of the abortion-pill mandate for a group of Catholic nuns, is a glimpse into the Obama Administration’s plan for the HHS Mandate.
After forcing millions of Americans off “plans they liked,” now the Obama Administration appears to be trying to force employees of religiously based organizations and businesses to lose their insurance as well.

An Eleventh Hour Blow to ObamaCare’s Abortion-Pill Mandate
At the eleventh hour, literally, the Supreme Court dealt a significant blow to ObamaCare’s HHS Mandate.
The mandate was set to force a group of Catholic nuns to pay for abortion pills. If that’s not an unbelievably obtrusive abuse of executive power and a trampling of religious liberty, I don’t know what is.

Greenwald To Host: MSNBC Glorifies Obama 24/7

On Thursday of this week, Glenn Greenwald appeared on MSNBC to discuss Edward Snowden. Partway through the interview, host Kristen Welker asked Greenwald a question using the lifeblood phrase of cable news provocation: “critics say.” She wanted to know what Greenwald thought about accusations that he was a mouthpiece for Snowden.

Leftists to Americans: ‘Embrace the Government Suck’
Uber-Leftist House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently chided her caucus to vote for a Paul Ryan-Patty Murray budget agreement – which they didn’t particularly like – by telling them to “Embrace the suck.” Stay classy, Congresswoman. This is the same woman who teed up the ObamaCare disaster by uttering the classic “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is | Read More »

The forgotten war
On Wednesday, three of what the Wall Street Journal describes as “the Obama Administration’s top Afghanistan specialists” trudged into the House Foreign Affairs Committee chambers, where they were flummoxed by a question from Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA). What super-complicated query from the Congressman stumped these highly trained and knowledgeable representatives of the most wise and wonky Administration in history – better able to run every industry than | Read More »
Obama’s Inequality Sophistry Is a Recipe for Misery
Inequality sucks when you’re on the wrong side of the greater than symbol. I’ve been there before and can empathize. However, a government aimed at ending inequality is unpractical, immoral and an aberration against the laws of nature. This sort of government is impractical because you cannot make the lowest and least motivated get off their butt in a nation where slavery has been abolished. People will ultimately only rise as high as they are willing. This push to unconditionally end inequality is immoral because it rewards the slack and the expense of both the willing and the most capable. It punishes the continued exertion of both will and ability. It is unnatural because it believes that a world of totally equal and totally unmotivated people will magically generate the capital necessary to create jobs for all the new recipients of equality being born every day. This doesn’t happen – job creation is a function of capital accumulation. Therefore President Obama may mean well by ending inequality, but he isn’t even remotely oriented in the right direction to improve America’s economic future.

A Little Sugar Coating and Bit of Demagogy is a Recipe for National Suicide by Regulation
One of the most odious aspects of regulation is the fact that it usually comes in a sugar coated package. Typically they are the result of a law that is intended to “help” everyone or “protect” some group or to give an advantage to a group whose members are perceived to be disadvantaged. It’s that sugar coating that makes regulations so difficult to challenge. If | Read More »
Obamacare Architect Now Says If You Want to Keep Your Doctor, You Can Pay More, But Whitehouse.gov Still Says Otherwise
On Sunday, the architect of Obamacare, Zeke Emanuel, modified another one of Obama’s promises. This time, he explained the “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” now actually means “if you want to, you can pay for it,”. During Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace pressed Emanuel to whether the promise would be upheld. Here’s the exchange, courtesy of The Weekly Standard. “The | Read More »
Obamacare- a Personal Story
This story would be sad if it was not so funny along the way. This past week I learned, through confidential sources, that the company for which I have worked for the past 11 years would be dropping health care coverage on all its 2,000 employees at the venue where I personally work. They additionally employ several more thousand nationwide. Of course, everyone realized something | Read More »
Quelle Surprise! Five years of Barack Obama undermining American influence in the world…
The American military is the most powerful in the world. Indeed, we spend more on defense than the rest of the world combined. As one might expect, that amount of military spending translates into a lot of influence around the world, far beyond the bases in Germany or the battlefields of Afghanistan. From leading NATO to acting as the last – and in reality the | Read More »

Obamacare “Essential Benefits” Rendered Most Insurance Policies Obsolete
The great bait-and-switch of Obamacare (“you can keep your plan and your doctor”) was intentionally orchestrated by the architects of the legislation. There were thousands of policies offered nationwide that were good and even very good but now they can’t be sustained under the new Obamacare policy requirements. These regulations are so narrow that it intentionally made obsolete or non-compliant the vast majority of health | Read More »
