    Let’s face it. That’s what it is. The Obama administration embraced it in arguments. The Supreme Court concurred. And the moment this was decided, Obama broke yet another promise. #FullRepeal Follow @BenHowe

    An Anonymous Warning to the President & His Allies

    This is an open letter to the Obama campaign that I wanted to pass along. I will not disclose the author, except to say that it is somebody who is in a position to know many of these things. It is not somebody who has any association with American Crossroads with whom the writer speaks about in the email. AN OPEN LETTER TO THE OBAMA | Read More »

    The Facade of Transparency has Crumbled: Executive Privilege Seals Fast & Furious Documents [UPDATE]

    In a stunning move, Eric Holder’s request for President Obama to assert executive privilege over documents related the Fast & Furious scandal has been granted. President Obama has granted an 11th-hour request by Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents, a last-minute maneuver that appears unlikely to head off a contempt vote against Holder by Republicans in the House. | Read More »

    Unions Intend to Strong-Arm American Airlines

    With the events of Wisconsin still fresh in our minds, and the cost of public sector unions at the center of state budget debates, it’s easy to overlook how devastating big labor can be on the American worker as well as the companies that employ them. For an example, look no further than American Airlines (AA). AA remained a profitable company in an industry full | Read More »

    Obama Skips Out On Bill at Lunch

    Sometimes the metaphors create themselves. Celebrating Father’s Day early, the president had lunch with two service members and two local barbers at Kenny’s BBQ on Capitol Hill. As the group chatted about fatherhood, the president enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread. The bill for the president and his four guests was $55.58, but | Read More »

    VIDEO: Ed Schultz Believes Wisconsin is a Microcosm of American Mood (He’s Right)

    God bless America. SCHULTZ: “I think Wisconsin is a microcosm of what’s taking place across the country. Whereas the tax breaks went to the corporations, and yet they try to balance the budget on the back of the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker, the teacher, the firefighters and those who can’t afford to give up anymore. It’s about protecting the future of workers in | Read More »

    Changing Consumer Behavior

    This morning I’m talking about the reauthorization of the Ex-Im Bank and how it’s a great example of the hypocrisy of President Obama. I’ll also talk about the banning of plastic bags and now the potential ban of soda. The world is determined to make me not fat and I shall continue to steadfastly deflect their attempts. Listen.

    Choose Your Path

    This morning I talked about my video that just came out last night and the pushback that it received. Seems some were none too pleased that my video was basically saying you need to vote for Romney in November. I also talk for a bit about Live Action’s undercover experience with Planned Parenthood and question what the problem is. Totally listen and stuff. Subscribe in | Read More »

    Kimberlin’s Associates Caught on Tape?

    Listen to the voices on this youtube video at Lee Stranahan’s website and tell me if they sound similar. What you are listening to is the recording of someone pulling what is known as SWATting; someone spoofing your phone number and calling in a false report to police with the caller ID tracing back to the victim of SWATting. This time, the call was done | Read More »

    Obama Campaign Spreading Oppo on Bain Detractors?

    Cory Booker, the Democrat Mayor who is rapidly becoming more famous for getting smacked down by his party after speaking his mind then he ever was for saving someone from a burning building, just can’t seem to say sorry enough to escape the trouncing he’s getting from the left. Despite making what has been referred to as a hostage video, begging for forgiveness for calling | Read More »

    Say what?

    Welcome to the first morning edition of the Ben Howe Show. Today I’ll talk about the ridiculous claims of a teacher in North Carolina that told a student he could be arrested for critizing the president. I’ll also discuss the Obama/Kenya bio story and offer a comparison to another falsified bio story that seems to be missing in the coverage. Plus, news on the elections | Read More »

    Ad Wars

    I am a rabid online video consumer. I love them, I watch them, I make them. The greatest thing about online videos is that, unlike television, the creators have all the time they need to explain their point and they are, more importantly, a relatively inexpensive way to react quickly to the opposition. I’m not sure the Obama administration has figured out yet that between | Read More »

    VIDEO: Day One

    The Romney campaign has released their first television ad and sent out a web version of it to their supporters earlier this morning. The ad has a very optimistic tone, and, rather than speaking in platitudes, the ad provides specificity around how a President Romney will differ from a President Obama.

    Narcissist in Chief Adds Himself to Every Presidential Biography (Except Ford)

    Many have called President Obama’s election historic, and rightly so. His presidency however, is another matter entirely. It’s historic in a lot of senses be it his record breaking debt accumulation & spending or his being the first president to have a rainbow halo placed on his head. But compared to the historic achievements of other presidents that did things like ending slavery or saving | Read More »

    In Response to Obama Attack Ad, Romney to Tackle Economy & Entitlements

    Obama has decided that he’d like to tussle with Romney in the economic playground this week, releasing an ad that has echoes of Gingrich’s SuperPAC spots but with even less factual basis. It’s cleverly named “Steel.” My favorite line from the video: “Those guys were all rich. They all had more money than they’ll ever spend.” They aren’t even trying to cover up the class | Read More »
