Big Brother Just Got Bigger: Doctors Can Report You to the FBI

It would be one thing if this new removal of a basic privacy right had been debated and hammered out between different parties. Instead, it was imposed by a gun-prohibitionist President based on calculating what he could get away with. Basically, now if you have a mental health crisis you have to worry about a doctor reporting you to the Feds. According to The Hill, “Rules eased on providing mental health records for background checks.” The Obama administration is seeking to make it easier for Read more […]

A Powerful Presidency? With the Power to Do What?

We need a powerful Presidency. There is no question about that. But… The powers of the office need to be limited to those areas the Constitution prescribes for the Executive Branch, and not one inch outside those bounds. Therein is the problem today, our President wants to be powerful, alright, but in every way—no different from Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, or Kim Jong Un’s North Korea.

Climate Change Pays: Barack Obama Wants Another Billion Dollars To Spread To His Friends

Climate change is the convenient excuse being used to give another fold in the President’s wallet. According to the Hill: President Obama will pitch a new $1 billion climate change resilience fund during a visit Friday to California. The fund, which would need to be approved by Congress, is intended to help communities dealing with negative weather that’s the result of climate change. Obama is touting the fund during a trip to California, which has been devastated by a drought that is threatening Read more […]

The Proper Republican Response To Obama’s Unilateral Changes In Obamacare Is Not More Changes!

From the Wall Street Journal: “Health-Law Mandate Put Off Again.” Most employers won’t face a fine next year if they fail to offer workers health insurance, the Obama administration said Monday, in the latest big delay of the health-law rollout. The Treasury Department, in regulations outlining the Affordable Care Act, said employers with 50 to 99 full-time workers won’t have to comply with the law’s requirement to provide insurance or pay a fee until 2016. Companies with more workers could Read more […]

Most Republicans Can’t Oppose Obama Without Being Hypocrites

Ron Paul writes, “Will No One Challenge Obama’s Executive Orders.” President Obama’s state of the union pledge to “act with or without Congress” marks a milestone in presidential usurpation of Congressional authority.  Most modern presidents have used executive orders to change and even create laws without Congressional approval. However President Obama is unusually brazen, in that most presidents do not brag about their plans to rule by executive order in state of the union speeches. Read more […]

Outraged About Terrorist “Supporters”? Be Outraged At The Usurper Executive

The headline has to make your blood boil. “Obama admin unilaterally changes law to allow immigrants with ‘limited’ terror contact into US.” The Daily Caller begins its story this way: The Obama administration has issued new exemptions to a law that bars certain asylum-seekers and refugees who provided “limited material support” to terrorists who are believed to pose no threat from the U.S. The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department published the new exemptions Wednesday Read more […]

Obama’s SOTU Message? “I’m Going Nuclear”

Obama has been quoted as saying that he intends to “bypass Congress.” As Tad Cronn summarized, In case you missed it, Obama this week declared to his Cabinet that if Congress doesn’t do what he wants it to do, he will simply use executive orders to create and enforce any law he chooses. We have yet to see where this is going, precisely. So it will be important to listen closely to tonight’s State Of The Union message because there is reason to believe that this might be something like Palpatine Read more […]

The Magic President Who Can Turn Back Time

I was listening to President Obama’s speech on the radio as I drove back home just now, so I had no access to the video feed. I have to assume that, at the point where he said Americans can keep their canceled policies (for one entire year, thank his generous heart), that he pulled his Harry Potter wand out of his the pocket of his suit and waved it in the air to change the Affordable Care Act and bring us back to the time before it had been signed into law. Then he said to do more he would Read more […]

On Child Protective Services, Part 2: Law/Enforcement Disconnect

Imagine you are driving down the road five miles under the marked speed limit and a police officer pulls you over for speeding. He says, “Yes, the speed limit says 45, but me and the boys have decided it would be better for you to drive 30. So we’re gonna take your car away. If you don’t like it, you can take it up with a judge. Oh, but not at a regular court. At our court. And not with elected judges. With judges we’ve appointed and can fire at will. Oh, and my verbal testimony in court Read more […]
