    YouTube & BMG Playing Politics?

    Yesterday I put up a post about the new video from the Romney campaign called “Political Payoffs and Middle Class Layoffs.” Today, YouTube pulled the ad at the request of music giant BMG for a copyright violation. The Romney camp has disputed the copyright claiming fair use since the ad was a commentary specifically involving Obama’s use of that song with those words. For some | Read More »

    Group Exempt from DISCLOSE Requirements Meets with DISCLOSE Lead Sponsor During Vote

    Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse has had a lot to say about money in politics. As lead sponsor of the defeated DISCLOSE Act, he has made a firm stand against the special interests. “The flawed Citizens United decision allows corporations, including international corporations, to use their vast wealth to drown out the voices of the American people…” (“Senators Introduce Constitutional Amendment to Clean Up Campaign Finance System,” | Read More »

    David Brock’s Paranoia Doesn’t Prevent Him From Stalking People

    You may recall a Daily Caller piece from earlier this year that exposed the odd behavior of Media Matters founder David Brock as the reincarnation of Mel Gibson’s character in the 1997 film Conspiracy Theory. As a refresher, here’s a typical day in the life: David Brock was smoking a cigarette on the roof of his Washington, D.C. office one day in the late fall | Read More »

    DISCLOSE Act Up For Vote: Call Your Senator

    Today the Senate will vote on the DISCLOSE act which is the latest Democrat assault on freedom of speech. The opening salvo was the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 — it was amended in 1975, and that amendment created the FEC. Then in 2002 we were introduced to the catastrophic Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 better known as McCain-Feingold which saw a huge | Read More »

    “They Have Not Funded My Campaign, They Will Not Work In My White House …”

    he Romney campaign has a new web video out today slamming President Obama for spending his time rewarding his top donors and lobbyists as the middle class suffers and the Democrats refuse vote in the Senate on over 30 bills that Republicans have passed in the House of Representatives.

    The Most Incredible Movie Trailer I Have Ever Seen

    I am in shock that this is real.  This is the type of insane hero worship we are up against folks.  If we win, there’s going to be fallout.  If we lose, it’ll be worse. Follow @BenHowe

    EPA Crucifier Has a New Gig

    Remember Al Armendariz, the former EPA regional administrator who got busted earlier this year for comparing his efforts to regulate energy companies to crucifixions? Well, surprise surprise. The former employee of an administration that used the pretext of the BP oil spill in the Gulf to clamp down on oil drilling, pursued cap-and-trade and the regulation of greenhouse gas emissions, pushed the MACT rule targeting the coal-produced | Read More »

    Romney Camp: Obamacare Not a Tax

    This is upsetting to say the least. The moment that the ruling came down last Thursday the hounds of hell were released by conservatives on twitter and in the blogosphere and videos galore of Obama saying the mandate was not a tax contrasted with news reports that the Supreme Court of the United States disagreed. In fact, not just disagreed but indicated that it was | Read More »

    VIDEO: Obamatax

    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.
