The Government Growth Bill of 2009
Marred by a week-long cycle of bad press and Cabinet defections, President Obama’s $787 Billion stimulus package passed both houses of Congress last night, despite the rigid partisan-divide. Clearly emboldened by their unanimous “No” votes on the first version, House Republicans, masterfully corralled by Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA), held the line yet again. Three Senate Republicans – Arlen Spector (R-PA), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Susan | Read More »
1,073 pages that are clear as mud — details lacking, transparency none, in stimulus bill
The Democrats are feeling a victory of sorts having muscled through a $787 billion stimulus bill late Friday night. Three Republicans in the Senate voted for it and not one vote came from a Republican in the house. Besides the hyper-partisanship on display, the Democrats and, especially President Barack Obama, have broke promises on transparency and have conducted themselves with same kind of finesse as a | Read More »
The House passed stimulus bill has a provision that will provide stimulus to criminals. No joke. On page 52 of the House Stimulus Bill, “$3,000,000,000, to be available for the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program.” The same provision is in the Senate bill, but for only $1.5 billion on page 42. These monies are dispensed by the Bureau of Justice Assistance at the Department of | Read More »
There is nothing like a man with the courage of his convictions. A man with a set of core beliefs so firmly entrenched in his character that the jaws of life couldn’t pry them loose. Ladies and Gentleman, that man is not President Barack Hussein Obama. Folding like a house of cards in a hurricane, President Obama quickly moved to soften “buy American” language in | Read More »
The verdict is out on the stimulus package, and many economist are not buying it.
Skeptics to the Obama/Democrat stimulus package whether they be professional, political or otherwise, have been considered opposition forces and simply labeled as naysayers by the supporters of the bill. The truth of the matter is that there are many qualified professionals who have studied economics and the American economy for decades who came to different conclusions on the merits of the stimulus package. The debate has brought | Read More »
Obama blackmails Illinois
In typical Chicago thug fashion, President Barack Hussein Obama, is attempting to blackmail the State of Illinois. Written into the text of the “stimulus” package is language that qualifies the spending of stimulus money by the state of Illinois,without legislature approval, if Rod Blagojevich is the governor. No Illinois state agency can spend stimulus money without the state legislature’s approval, the bill says, until a | Read More »

A Positive Thing about Obama: the Deaf and Closed-Captioning Service
A positive thing about President Obama? Who in his right mind would say this? Normally, most conservatives on this site would say no. And I am a conservative just like most of you are. However, I am unique among conservatives due to the fact I am Deaf. I turned conservative just a little over 10 years ago the moment I became a born-again Christian. But like | Read More »
Is It Just Me Or Is Sarah Palin The Only Republican Making Sense Right Now?
I was listening to Bill Bennett’s radio program this morning and a caller was talking about a local event that she had attended with an official from Sen McConnell’s office. She asked this person what the Republicans in the senate were going to do to stop the socialist agenda that President Obama is pushing. His response was to say that Senator McConnell thinks that we | Read More »
A nation of men (Obama, Geithner), not laws
The United States is a nation of laws, not men. The United States of America is a nation of laws, not men. In our Supreme Court’s first and foremost landmark case, Marbury v. Madison, 1 Cranch 137 (19803), Chief Justice John Marshall inveighed those words against Secretary of State James Madison. “The government of the United States has been emphatically termed a government of laws | Read More »
So this is how liberty dies…
to the incoherent ramblings of an elected Marxist. President Obama’s speech was a disgrace and his ability to deliver it with a straight face says something about the “content of his character”. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our | Read More »

Obama Administration Survival Guide
The nation awakens today to a grim day (although less grim than it might have been, as the late Senate races come in and the prognosis for a decent-sized GOP resistance looks much better). But America has endured worse. Here’s 12 ways I recommend that conservatives and Republicans prepare to face the next four years under President Obama (yeah, get used to that one):
Where do we go from here?
Two must read posts tonight, Neil Stevens’ points and Dan McLaughlin’s h/t to Rove — It begins with the base. Now for a point of my own. We must stand strong as conservatives and libertarians and not give up. In doing so, we must buck up our remaining GOP Senators. The pressure they will be under to capitulate and not filibuster, to go along to | Read More »
