Hillary Caught Red Handed

HillaryClinton Just two days ago, the New York Times rewrote a story about Hillary Clinton's email scandal in order to soften the PR blow to her campaign, at her handlers' request. That seems unlikely to happen again anytime soon as the facts about two investigators' call for a criminal investigation of the former secretary of state's handling of official emails become known. The New York Times' lede on Friday night: WASHINGTON — Government investigators said Friday that they had discovered classified Read more [...] Continue reading →

Did Veterans Affairs Deliberately Help Soldiers Mess Up Their Paperwork and Delay Care?

healthcare There is evidence that the Veterans Affairs bureaucrats decided not to tell veterans what they needed to do to apply for care. You might remember the Pixar movie, "The Incredibles." One of my favorite scenes was of Mr. Incredible's job at an insurance agency. He was supposed to turn down claims whether they were legitimate or not. Ironically, I think the popular perception that movie tapped into was one reason why people were receptive to Obamacare as our savior from the insurance agencies. Read more [...] Continue reading →

Left Goes on Binge Rewriting History

1984 One thing the recent Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage did was to give the radical Left in this country a boost of confidence. That much is clear. Since that ruling, which happened at almost the same time as the funeral for the people shot in South Carolina by Dylann Roof, the Left has been on a real tear through history, trying to rewrite the past to "prove" support for their unsupportable ideas. The funerals of Roof's victims and publication of a photograph of Roof holding a Confederate Read more [...] Continue reading →

Socialist Medicine Means Exploiting and Overworking Doctors

socialism_02 England’s system of socialist medicine is using overworked doctors who are required to fill more and more overtime. Here is an interesting story from England’s The Independent showing where our own country is headed: “NHS hospitals pushing young medics to brink of 'burnout' by relying on them to work extra hours.” Hospitals are pushing young medics to the brink of “burnout” by relying on them to work extra hours to plug long-term gaps in ward rotas, leading doctors have warned, after Read more [...] Continue reading →

CNN Claims the Pope Has Hurt Republicans. Doubtful.

Pope Francis 1 Why should a pope spouting global warming propaganda hurt Republicans more than Democrats are hurt by abortion? It is pretty clear that Pope Francis is a socialist who is trying to undo the good that Pope John Paul pursued during his time holding the Roman Catholic office. But the media is trying to pretend that the pope could actually hurt Republicans. That makes no sense. CNN Politics blared the headline: “Pope hands GOP climate change dilemma.” Republicans eyeing the White House Read more [...] Continue reading →

How Politics Fails to Provide: Marine Sniper Rifle

ferguson sniper The marine sniper rifle is an example of how the government fails in providing goods and services. What happens when the people who chose the tools are different from the people who use the tools? The tool users find that they are not equipped the way they ought to be. The Washington Post published a story yesterday about how, despite prodigious military spending, Marine snipers are outgunned by the Taliban and many other armies. The Marine Corps is known for fielding older equipment. In the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Global Warming — Not About the E-Word (Environment)

 Listen to propaganda from the EPA and MDE, and you would think “Climate Change” programs are about saving the environment, but you would be wrong. I’ll start by defining a term I created: “climateer”- - Someone with a vested interest in believing in catastrophic anthropogenic climate change.   Two most interesting attributes of climateers are the facts that (a) they have no conclusive facts, but rely on anecdotal assertions like ”97% of scientists believe in climate change”; and Read more [...] Continue reading →

Tennessee Republican Politicians Force Higher Milk Prices

corruption Because Tennessee Republican politicians are a bunch of socialists and corruptocrats. If you want to know why the response to Obamacare by Republicans has been so weak, the answer is easy to find. Republican politicians agree with Obama’s overall economic and political philosophy and they disagree with the economic and political philosophy that is prominent among Republican voters. They don’t believe in freedom; they don’t understand freedom beyond a jingle that they use to win votes, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Does the GOP have An Obamacare Contingency Plan?

Paul Ryan and barack obama Liberals are saying that Republican lack of interest in an Obamacare contingency plan is some kind of threat. Jonathan Cone’s piece at the Huffington Post yesterday sounded all concerned: “The Real Reason Republicans Don't Have A Contingency Plan For Obamacare.” If you want to know about the Republican Party’s priorities for health care, pay close attention to what transpired -- and what didn’t transpire -- on Capitol Hill Tuesday. The House Ways and Means Committee held a session Read more [...] Continue reading →

Unaffordable Care: Obamacare Prices May Go Up 30-50% in Some Regions

repeal obamacare Anyone who was honest and not stupid knew that Obamacare prices would skyrocket, so naturally politicians imposed it on us. Do you think health care costs are unaffordable under the (heh) Affordable Health Care Act? Well... medical insurance premiums under Obamacare are going up an additional thirty to fifty percent in 2016. Yes, really!—thirty to fifty percent in some places. Here’s the news from Politico.com: “Experts see big price hikes for Obamacare.” The cost of Obamacare Read more [...] Continue reading →

Barack Obama Tells Evangelicals what to Believe and Do

Obama Halo_0 No one is surprised that Barack Obama is ready and willing to tell Evangelicals to be more like him. I remember back when Barack Obama “changed his mind” about homosexual marriage—that is, he found it politically expedient to admit openly to the agenda he had planned from the beginning. It was amazing to see the reaction from homosexuals. They spoke like Roman Catholics who had just been touched by the Pope. Somehow, Obama’s good opinion of them and their “unions” was a source of life Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Socialist Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Ben Franklin sheep wolves "Social Justice" dispenses with real liberty and justice in order to enforce a socialist ideal. In my previous article on “Social Justice”, I began to expose the “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.”  I am referring to noble sounding, but ill-conceived government initiatives that insidiously displace individual rights and freedoms with collectivist goals.   This can be expected as evidenced by the fact the insignia for the Fabian Socialists is a wolf-in-sheep’s clothing. Certainly, everyone Read more [...] Continue reading →
