Sen. Lamar Alexander must be in deep trouble
This only can mean President Barack Obama’s favorite Tennessee Republican, Sen. Lamar Alexander, is in deep primary doo-doo: “State Rep. Joe Carr lent a company affiliated with a prominent supporter $200,000 in campaign funds last year — a transaction that campaign finance experts said appears to be extremely unusual. “Life Watch Pharmacy, a Nashville company led by venture capitalist and conservative fundraiser Andrew Miller, was given the | Read More »
Obama inadvertently completes the Reagan Revolution
President Barack Hussein Obama promised to “fundamentally transform America” if elected president. In a way he never conceived, he has. Obama’s failed Affordable Healthcare Act has completed the Reagan Revolution. Here’s how. Beltway Republicans spent the last 25 years arguing for a conservative form of Big Government. The GOP hierarchy wouldn’t admit this is what they wanted, but it was. The Democrats, of course, always embraced an | Read More »
Kudos to Reince Priebus, RNC
I’m usually the first to gripe about Establishment Republicans and squishes, so let me be the first out of the box to salute today’s RNC decision to nix NBC and CNN as national debate hosts due to their Hillary Clinton pimping. I am incredibly proud to have Reince Priebus as chair of the RNC today. For too long, hostile venues, biased moderators, and blatantly partisan | Read More »
The silver lining in left-wing media’s Tuscon tragedy spin: it won’t work.
Within hours of the Oklahoma City bombing, then-President Bill Clinton laid the blame at the feet of what was then a new medium, talk radio. Sadly, it worked to a degree. His willing left-wing media conspirators followed his lead and, in an attempt to silence opposition voices, made a significant segment of the American public believe Rush Limbaugh somehow loaded up a truck with fertilizer | Read More »
Updated: Swamp Creature Pelosi makes Ground Zero mosque a true First Amendment issue
You have to hand it to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. She finally has made the Ground Zero mosque into an actual First Amendment issue. For the vast majority of us, this never has been a question about whether our Muslim-American brothers and sisters have the First Amendment right to build a place of worship. They obviously do. Even the bothersome isssues of potential Wahhabi | Read More »
Raping Arizona: Obama’s DOJ files a suit that doesn’t pass the straight face test
For weeks the Obama Administration has ominously threatened legal action against Arizona. Claims were made that Arizona had passed a law, Senate Bill 1070, that would result in racial profiling. The president himself claimed Hispanic citizens would be pulled out of ice cream parlors and hauled off to Star Chambers where they would be forced to prove their immigration status. Obama’s sycophants, none of whom | Read More »
Unusual suspect: Some cities break laws and Arizona enforces them. Guess which Obama will prosecute?
Imagine you are the governor of Arizona. You are sitting at your desk, and you are watching an interview conducted a continent away with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Your mouth drops open as you learn something from a television station down in Ecuador. Your state recently enacted a law that allows police officers to inquire about the immigration status of criminal suspects. The law | Read More »
Democrats conduct–and left-wing media incites–most political violence. Exhibit A? Palin’s church.
Attempts by Democrats and the left-wing media to drown out the voices of the vast majority of Americans who oppose Obama care are as hilarious as they are hypocritical. We can cite incident after incident where some left-wing loon, prodded by the media, conducted an act of political violence. These are so numerous, and the media’s attempt to cover them up so largely successful, they | Read More »
Obamacare the equivalent of curing cancer, sayeth my adopted congressman
“This is as major a public health accomplishment as reducing car wrecks or finding a cure for a dread disease. One of the lives saved could be yours.” That outright lie, or, to be kind, hyperbolic insanity, was how my former and recently adopted congressman, Democrat Jim Cooper, TN-5, described Obamacare last night. Cooper, who voted against Hillarycare because he claimed it to be fiscally | Read More »
Environmental jihad: the AGW Inquisition takes Holy War to the Gates of Copenhagen
Hypocrisy is not a trait of Global Warming Advocates, and you don’t really understand why that is so. What you see as hypocrisy, from Al Gore’s gazillion-watt cooling system to limos belching smoke through the streets of Copenhagen, is an entitlement. It is an entitlement that has been bestowed upon the priesthood of whatever religion man has practiced since he stood upright. The faithful’s deprivation | Read More »
