The Top Five Takeaways From The #SOTU
Tonight the President delivered his State of the Union remarks. It was a grandiose speech with lofty ideals, delivered with all of the considerable rhetorical charms at his disposal, sure to go down in history as a prime exemplar of “how it’s done.” Wait .. hang on. I’ve just been informed that I was watching March of the Penguins. My bad. As it turns out, | Read More »
A Short Recap of the #SOTU
The President showed up late. You shouldn’t take his consistent tardiness as a slight against you, after all, he is far too narcissistic to actually be thinking of you. President Obama then strolled along the aisle of the House, slowly making his way up to the lectern. He looked like he was tired, like Jordan or Favre after they retired the second time. But looks | Read More »

Obama is inviting an Illegal Immigrant to the State of the Union Address
It is seemingly customary that the President invites certain people to be special guests at his State of the Union Address. Yesterday, the White House published its list of President Obama’s guests for this year’s address. Most of them are relatively uncontroversial, such as Alan Gross, the US citizen freed from a Cuban prison; astronaut Scott Kelly, who is about to spend a year aboard the International Space | Read More »
How do you Solve a Problem like Obama?
President Obama’s New Years Resolution to bypass Congress and step up his preferred rule-by-fiat form of government seems to be right on track and gaining speed. The definition of fiat: an arbitrary decree or pronouncement, especially by a person or group of persons having absolute authority to enforce it, such as a king. During his first Cabinet meeting of 2014, President Obama declared, “I’ve got | Read More »
Will the Real Barack Obama Please Stand Up
No doubt those who took time to listen to the SOTU address certainly realized that it was a canned speech that Barack used in 2008 and 2009. A few bells and whistles added to get viewer’s attention, but the sad part is the man giving that address (State of the Union) in 2014 appears to have some serious health issues. Compare Barack Obama physical stature | Read More »
Latest, Most Blatant Example of the MSM-Obama Cult
Did you see that speech last night? Yeah, me neither, but apparently Obama is a hero. Mark Murray, a guy you never heard of but who is the senior political editor for NBC News, tweeted this morning: Obama’s ending on Remsburg wasn’t just a story about America — it also was a story about Obama. Nothing has ever come easy Remsburg is Sgt. First Class | Read More »
Errors & Omissions: Protecting the State of the Union From the Statements the President Made
Errors and omissions (E&O) is the coverage that protects you from another individual or company that wants to hold you responsible for something that you provided which does not give expected results. Does the President have coverage? There were many statements made last night during the State of the Union that didn’t seem to match up with reality for many Americans. Going through the transcript | Read More »

Senator Ted Cruz Reacts to the State of the Union Address

The State of the Republican Party
The big story for conservatives is not the President’s State of the Union Address. It is the broken state of the Republican Party – the party that is supposed to serve as a bulwark against the poisonous ideas propagated in that speech. It certainly is egregious that we have a president who is brazenly implementing wage controls without congressional approval. It is reprehensible that he | Read More »
State of The Union Preview (all five-hundred-seven seconds!)
Nobody told me (there’d be days like these)… The older in days I become, the more convinced I am that Goerge Washington‘s District of Columbia’s ruling-class is an amorphous that harkens back to that Democrat-Republican Party. However <~~ that 'dash' has become a euphamism for 'bipartisianship' that #TheMan must need we subjects to believe in, or else. Anywho… for your viewing pleasure, here is tonight’s | Read More »
Obama’s War on Women
After watching Lila Rose ably defend every woman’s right to life on Crossfire, I have been toying with an argument that bypasses the viability and preference minutia. This is probably written more technically than I would like, but it communicates what I believe to be a strong case for the inherent contradictions in the pro-abortion argument. I pray that we recognize that there are 2 | Read More »
Dear Lotus King: I’ll see your minimum wage increase and raise you…
Though he may not consider himself an emperor (at least not yet), this last Tuesday, I came to the decisive conclusion that Barack Obama is King of the Lotus Eaters.

The Cruelty of the Minimum Wage
In his State of the Union speech Tuesday, President Obama called for an increase in the federal minimum wage, gloating that it had been endorsed even by his vanquished moderate Republican opponent in the 2012 campaign. A minimum wage increase is not needed, and would harm those it’s supposed to help.
