    Tom Ridge: Unindicted Co-conspirator

    In Philadelphia were are being treated to the logical outcome of unprincipled pseudo-conservatism. An abortionist by the name of Kermit Gosnell is on trial for murder because some of the infants he was supposed to kill were inconveniently born alive. Gosnell’s defense is that the babies of poor and minority women deserve to be killed and to prosecute him is racism. That’s right. Racism. But | Read More »

    Fat Jerry Nadler Enters The Gun Control Debate


    Only a few hours after the tragic shootings in Newton, Connecticut, Fat Jerry Nadler was on the Ed Schultz show encouraging Obama to “exploit” the tragedy. It was hardly necessary to encourage the ongoing RICO conspiracy in the White House to create a crisis to exploit or to exploit an existing tragedy.

    The Practical Reasons To Not Set Up Health Insurance Exchanges

    One of the keys to implementing Obamacare is the establishment of health insurance exchanges in each state. Despite them being a huge pig in the poke, some are accusing GOP governors of betraying “states rights” by refusing to take on the responsibility. To the contrary, refusal is both a political and economic no-brainer.

    The Department of Illiteracy


    If the road to Hell is paved with good intentions then the federal government is the general contractor on the project. Since the advent of the Great Society virtually every governmental effort to alleviate a real or imagined social injustice has created a series of perverse incentives to make the targeted ill more widespread.

    Selling Conservatism And Why Benefits Beat Features

    One of the first things anyone learns in sales is that the customer is interested in benefits, not features. Politics are no different. While a majority of Americans are sympathetic to conservative positions, our failure to articulate what those positions mean in terms of benefits to the voter have led to us losing battles we should be winning.

    Annoying Orange. Charlie Crist Becomes A Democrat.


    Former Florida governor Charlie Crist, still suffering from butthurt after his defeat by Marco Rubio, has decided to follow his conscience and become a Democrat. Bye. The real issue is why John Cornyn/s NRSC endorsed him for Senate and why, given the pattern of behavior, that any self proclaimed moderate is endorsed for anything.

    House Passes STEM Immigration Reform. Racialists Go Crazy.


    This week the House passed an immigration reform bill which gives a relatively easy path to legal residency for foreign students at American universities with advanced degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This welcome step was immediately attacked by the racialist caucus of the Democrat party because it brings in self sufficient immigrants not government dependents.

    Howard Dean: Fiscal Cliff Is The Best Deal Progressives Will Get

    In an interview on Morning Joe this morning, Howard Dean declared that going over the “fiscal cliff” provided the Democrats with their best outcome. He is right. It is also the best outcome for conservatives.

    GOP Between A Cliff And A Cave

      With only four weeks remaining before the ominously named “fiscal cliff” the White House made its official offer to Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell: Obama’s proposal, as outlined by Republicans, would purportedly trim the debt by about $4 trillion over the next decade, in part through spending cuts already in force and savings from ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. | Read More »

    You Think Obama Stole the Election? Then Read This

    In the aftermath of Romney’s defeat a new conspiracy theory, or a close kin thereof, has emerged: Obama stole the election. This has joined 9-11 Trutherism and Birtherism (along with the Bilderbergers, Illuminati, Opus Dei, and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion) as a subject lucid people don’t talk about in a non-ironic way.

    Obamacare Meets Reality. Reality Wins.


    The Obama regime’s ideological blinders and lack of real world experience has led to the development of a health care law that promises to increase cost to the government, reduce options to consumers, and cause companies to downsize and convert full time workers to part timers. This is truly a triumph of Cargo Cult Economics.

    Paul Krugman Agrees There Is No Fiscal Cliff


    Last week I proposed that the GOP walk away from the negotiations on the alleged Fiscal Cliff because we gain nothing from the process. Since then the CBO has agreed with me that there is no fiscal cliff. Now Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize winning economist and Obama fluffer, recommends that Obama walk away, too.

    The CBO Says The Fiscal Cliff Is A Good Thing


    When the nonpartisan CBO examined the fiscal cliff it found that if the current measures were not sustained it could push us into a recession. It also found that letting the measures under consideration to lapse was critical to the long term economic health of the country.
