    The Dumb Impulse Towards Authoritarianism

    The Dumb Impulse Towards Authoritarianism

    Yesterday, Breitbart Texas highlighted a particularly stupid bill that is being pushed by Texas State Rep. Jason Villalba which would, in essence, make it illegal for any person (other than media) to film cops while they are performing their duties from a distance of less than 25 feet (or 100 feet if you are legally carrying a concealed weapon, for some reason). As written, Villalba’s | Read More »

    Republicans (and Democrats) in Congress Plan to Use a Fake Crisis to Raise Your Taxes

    Republicans (and Democrats) in Congress Plan to Use a Fake Crisis to Raise Your Taxes

      Fresh off their capitulation on almost every issue of substance during their first two months of the new session, Republicans are now joining with Democrats to start a PR war to cushion the blow for their plan to institute a tax hike that will disproportionately affect low-and-middle class  families. The PR push in question relies on a fake and manufactured crisis concerning the imminent | Read More »

    To Unions, There’s No Such Thing as a Bad (or Good) Employee

    To Unions, There's No Such Thing as a Bad (or Good) Employee

    I am sure that the people who support and boost and voluntarily belong to unions have genuine puzzlement about why union membership and popularity is at an all time low in this country. If they want an answer, they need look no farther than this exchange between the head of the Colorado Education Association and Colorado state representative Paul Lundeen. Unions used to stand for | Read More »

    On Conservatives and Losing

    On Conservatives and Losing

    Sarah Mimms has an interesting piece at National Journal regarding the conservative losing streak in the House and Senate. It is intended, I guess, to cast a ray of hope for alternate tactics that conservative members of Congress can use to get around the blocking efforts of leadership, and Mimms makes several good points. For example: Conservatives came to Washington labeling President Obama as enemy | Read More »

    Hey President Obama: Do Something About It

    Hey President Obama: Do Something About It

    As it happens, I tend to agree that members of the opposition party in Congress should not send letters to foreign governments that the President is negotiating with in order to undercut his negotiating position. I think the proper thing to do in case the opposition party feels that they will not ratify an agreement the President might make is for them to send a | Read More »

    Obama’s Not-so-Secret Immigration Operational Center

    Obama's Not-so-Secret Immigration Operational Center

    The folks at the Daily Signal have put together this great video showing how the Federal Government is preparing to implement Obama’s Executive Amnesty. One of the most common defenses of the Republicans’ capitulation on the DHS funding battle was that shuttind down DHS would not actually stop the program from going forward; this video shows (among other things) that this is absolutely not true: | Read More »

    Republican Leadership Wants Barack Obama to Run Congress

    Republican Leadership Wants Barack Obama to Run Congress

    This is truly unbelievable. The Main Street Advocacy group, which is a group that was formed by Republican leadership and funded by Republican leadership and their allies, and run by leadership lapdog Steve LaTourette has issued a truly unbelievable ad. The ad backs all the worst people in Congress like Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) 58% and it attacks people who objected to | Read More »

    A Dumb Playbook Written by Out-of-Touch Dinosaurs

    A Dumb Playbook Written by Out-of-Touch Dinosaurs

    In case you were wondering where Republicans in Congress would do for an encore after having completely dispirited and depressed their voting base in less than 60 days by flubbing a slam dunk abortion bill and passing a clean DHS funding bill without anything more than a token fight over Obama’s executive amnesty, well, you’re going to want to sit down because [mc_name name=’Sen.

    Silence is Hillary’s Only Play

    Silence is Hillary's Only Play

    Yesterday on Meet the Press, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) 0% theorized that Hillary Clinton was hurting herself with the personal email scandal by not speaking out and taking questions about the whole affair. Feinstein’s reasoning is that the rules and laws regarding email archival were inherently ambiguous and if Clinton just comes out and explains that, everything will be fine: Feinstein pointed | Read More »

    The Evil Party: Still Smarter than the Stupid Party

    The Evil Party: Still Smarter than the Stupid Party

    Here is an unfortunate fact of life: the shortest route between any elected Republican and an invitation to a television interview is criticism of another elected Republican. And hey, who doesn’t like being on television? Accordingly, every time any Republican says anything even slightly off kilter – especially a front running Presidential candidate, the media goes looking for other Republicans to pile on their own criticism | Read More »

    The Cult of Clinton

    The Cult of Clinton

    Come, and I will tell you a tale that defies rational belief. Yesterday, a relatively humanoid being who has, according to eyewitness testimony, been living on Planet Earth for at least the last three decades penned the following words about the Clintons: Because the Clintons are held to a double standard when it comes to media scrutiny. Their perfectly usual, above board behavior is spun | Read More »

    In King v. Burwell, Liberals Substitute False Confidence for Facts

    In King v. Burwell, Liberals Substitute False Confidence for Facts

    Any seasoned Supreme Court watcher will tell you that it is impossible to predict with any level of certainty what the Supreme Court will do about anything. Generally speaking, the more confident someone sounds during the course of predicting the outcome of a Supreme Court case, the less confidence you should have in their analysis. This leads directly to the phenomenon we are witnessing now | Read More »
