Obama inadvertently completes the Reagan Revolution
President Barack Hussein Obama promised to “fundamentally transform America” if elected president. In a way he never conceived, he has. Obama’s failed Affordable Healthcare Act has completed the Reagan Revolution. Here’s how. Beltway Republicans spent the last 25 years arguing for a conservative form of Big Government. The GOP hierarchy wouldn’t admit this is what they wanted, but it was. The Democrats, of course, always embraced an | Read More »
For all of your “Explain to folks how bad Sebelius was today” needs. #obamacare
The NRCC went ahead and created a useful list called the “7 Most Ridiculous Things Kathleen Sebelius Said At Today’s Hearing:” there were more than seven, of course, but these were particularly… well, ‘good’ is not really the right term, eh? Anyway, this one’s my favorite: 2. “The website never crashed.” “We were anxious to get the website up and running and functional, which we | Read More »
The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 57: Millions of ObamaCare Broken Promises
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. You were told that, if you liked your doctor, you could keep your doctor. But hospitals are laying off people by the thousands. You were told that, if you liked your health plan, you could keep your health plan. But the Affordable Care Act has, written into the bill in | Read More »
“A Promise He Could Not Keep.” [Video fixed.]
[Video fixed: I don't know why the code wasn't loading earlier, sorry.] The House GOP has produced… the video that all of you wanted them to produce about Obamacare. One that simply shows all the people who are being hurt by Barack Obama’s (and by extension, the Democratic party’s leadership’s) lies about how ‘if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.’ Well, that | Read More »
Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God
On July 4, 1776 after approving the Declaration of Independence, Congress chose Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin to design a great seal for our new country. Benjamin Franklin proposed the phrase “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.” This sentiment ran throughout the revolutionaries fighting to shed a system of government that viewed them as “subjects” rather than free men with the right | Read More »
CNN reports Obama admin failed to ensure contractors could test Healthcare.gov
CNN has released a report that the main Healthcare.gov contractor CGI warned the Obama administration one month in advance that there were critical problems preventing them from ensuring a clean launch of the website. In particular, the administration was warned that testing was being obstructed.
The quote from the CGI memo leaves no doubt, if you understand the technical jargon used in the memo. I’ll take it apart and explain just how bad this situation really was.

Daily Kos Proudly Boasts Taking on RedState Over ObamaCare – But Willfully Ignores Facts
About a week ago, I wrote about my personal experience with ObamaCare. After the website failures, mangled data, and numerous other problems, the Obama Administration allowed users to see what plans would be available in their area.
My explanation of the facts was immediately attacked by the Left. The liberals over at the Daily Kos pounced, applauding those on the Left “Bravely taking on Redstate,” as commenters from the Left accused me of lying about what I discovered when I went to Healthcare.gov.

Big Government once again turns on its Little Partners
I’m going to use a loaded word in this post, so I want to get it out of the way right up front. That word is fascism. We all know it’s bad – just about the worst thing a government can become, although I can think of a few million victims of communism who might argue the point, if we could use a Ouija board to | Read More »
When Government Grows, We Lose. Only Government Wins
Government grows – and only government benefits. We’re seeing that with the Affordable Care Act – ObamaCare. Turns out that the laws opponents were right – it is stripping from millions of Americans their health insurance coverage. President Barack Obama and his fellow travelers insisted – again, and again, and again, and again – that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. | Read More »
The Housing Bust and Obamanomics, Five Years On
This month and next mark the fifth anniversaries of the Housing Bust-caused financial crisis that led to TARP and other Fat Cat-bailouts and the election of the purveyor of Obamanomics. Next month also marks the seventh anniversary of the Election of 2006 that returned Democrats to power in the House for four years and in the Senate for six years and counting that have, along | Read More »

Scrubbed: ‘Publishing Glitch’ Causes NBC News Story On Obamacare To Vanish, Reappears With Edits
Last night, I blogged about NBC News’ report on the Obama administration knowing that millions would lose their coverage as a result of the new health care law. In fact, it was projected that 40-67% of Americans in the individual market would lose their coverage. It was posted late afternoon yesterday, but the link vanished later that night. According to NBC, they blamed it on a “publishing glitch.” | Read More »

The three interlocking gears of the #Obamacare #FAIL.
Originally, I was going to use the step-stool analogy, only the problem here is that in order for Obamacare to work all three problems need to be resolved. At the moment the administration is more or less working on one full time, and desultorily working on another. The third has yet to be addressed. So… consider a set of gears, with three obstructions. All three | Read More »
Mitch McConnell in his Own Words
Watch carefully with the understanding that this is the most powerful, well-connected Republican in Washington, and you will see why we are losing. Enough said. Open thread Tuesday.
Tech at Night: Anonymous recruits elementary school student to commit crime. NSA Roundup.
How busy and important is FCC? They have time to worry about fluorescent lights in every small business in America, it seems.
More proof kids don’t belong on the Internet: the anarchoterrorists of Anonymous are now recruiting 12 year old elementary school students to commit crimes for them. Please take note, everyone. The Internet is a dangerous place that is not safe for kids.
That said, beware ideas for government-directed national cybersecurity plans or regulations, such as those proposed often by Democrats. They can’t even secure the Obamacare website, let alone tell you how to secure yours. Share information only. Pass CISPA, not new mandates.
