Just Relax In Your ‘Fundamentally Transformed’ Country, Americans

by Smitty Pres’ent Obama has simply carried through: In the pre-transformed America, it was understood that the Commies had infiltrated Hollywood and academia. No one really expected subversion of the IRS: To summarize: The IRS (famed for nitpicking and prosecuting the tax law), chose to authorize hundreds of billions of illegal subsidies without having performed […]

Democrats: The Party of Theft

It’s not merely that they steal money from taxpayers. Democrats are just generally dishonest and untrustworthy: Senator John Walsh of Montana took most of a 2007 final paper required for his master’s degree from the United States Army War College from other sources without proper attribution. Mr. Walsh copies an entire page nearly word-for-word from […]

Did ObamaCare Just Die?

Circuit Court of Appeals decision this morning: Court Rules That Subsidies in Obamacare’s Federal Exchange are Illegal, Dealing Huge Legal Blow to Health Law – Reason In Blow to Health Law, Appeals Court Limits Subsidies – New York Times BREAKING: Two Republican Judges Order Obamacare […]

Over the years, whenever the headlines told of bad economic news I’d wonder […]

On the stump, in campaign ads and at fundraisers, Obama’s absence is increasingly conspicuous. Democrats are voicing their displeasure with his policies and campaign advisers are telling candidates […]

Presidential Imperialism

Jonathan Turley has a column by President Obama’s high-handed, irresponsible and unconstitutional exercise of unilateral power: In our system, there is no license to go it alone.

Nor is congressional refusal to […]

Progressivism Won’t Be Our Death

But that’s really just the inner demons from the Commies burying us in negative vibe, and maybe a FaceBook experiment or two. Jonah Goldberg was focusing on “Liberals tak[ing] exception to exceptionalism” in […]
