Dems Love Nikki Haley’s Speech

The White House seems to be crushing on the Governor of South Carolina because of her speech. From The Hill: “White House heaps praise on Haley after SOTU response.” South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s (R) response to President Obama’s State of the Union address won her praise from the very place she was tasked with criticizing: the White House.  “I have a lot of admiration for the governor,” White House chief of staff Denis McDonough told reporters at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Read more […]

The NSA Is the Executive Branch’s Political Tool

Awhile back Mark Horne pointed out that if our masters really needed the NSA for terrorism they wouldn’t be using its illegal spy powers for industrial espionage. Indeed, learning about NSA misbehavior cost Boeing business in Brazil. The recent scandal of the NSA spying on Congress demonstrates the same lesson. Representative Mark Meadows of North Carolina writes at the Washington Examiner (emphasis added), According to recent reports, the Obama administration condoned the spying on of senior Read more […]

The Republican-Democrat Alliance: The Common Ground is Money & Debt

The mega-spending bill has passed, complete with the Christmas gift to Planned Parenthood. Peter Suderman at Reason.com gives us a way to understand what has happened: “Democrats and Republicans Team Up to Pass $1.8 Trillion Spending Package.” One way to understand the massive federal spending package is as a compromise between Republicans and Democrats to ignore the deficit. The deal is made of two different elements—a 2,009-page omnibus that folds in 12 appropriations bills and calls for $1.1 Read more […]

White House Spokesman: “I Don’t Know” Why Gun Sales Are Up

Here’s a headline from the Washington Times proving that it is impossible to distinguish the propaganda from the Obama Administration from The Onion: “White House: No idea why Americans are buying so many guns.” President Obama’s spokesman said Thursday that the record number of Americans seeking to buy guns in recent weeks is “a tragedy” that the White House is at a loss to explain. “The more that we see this kind of violence on our streets, the more people go out and buy guns,” said Read more […]

White House Eulogizes Staffer and Depersonalizes His Unborn Child

An unborn child must not be referred to by a White House prepared to veto any law protecting even born babies from murder. Here’s the headline from the Washington Post a couple of days ago: “White House staffer killed on charity bike ride remembered as ‘epitome of a public servant’” A day after a White House staffer died in a cycling accident while raising money for cancer, his wife released a heart-felt tribute to her husband on Instagram that recalled his optimism and selflessness. “I Read more […]

The White House Defends Planned Parenthood by Repeating Their Talking Points

When the White House defends Planned Parenthood they don’t even pretend to have an independent point of view. When the White House defends Planned Parenthood and condemns the videos from the Center for Medical Progress as “fraudulent” they don’t do so by making any kind of independent investigation. In fact, they are too shameless to even pretend to be independent. You have to watch this video from Breitbart to believe how shameless they can be: As IJReview.com reports, When asked by Read more […]

Hillary Caught Red Handed

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 […]

Second Amendment Can be Disregarded for Officer Safety?

The Obama Administration invokes officer safety to justify banning bullets. As Bob Allen reported on Friday, the Obama Administration has devised a way to effectively ban certain guns by banning their ammunition via the BATFE. Since there are such things as the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and—more specifically—the Second Amendment, naturally many Americans are outraged. Thus, we get to hear a big fib put out by the White House. As the Washington Times reports, “White House Read more […]

Al Sharpton, White House Tool

Sharpton was one of several clergymen to offer themselves and their church titles as part of the White House tool kit. The Weekly Standard ran an interesting story about who gets a place on Barack Obama’s guest list: “Al Sharpton Gets Meeting With President.” Al Sharpton met with the president of the United States yesterday. “President Obama met with African American civil rights and faith leaders to provide an update on the Administration’s priorities as described in the State Read more […]

Yet another White House Cover-up: IRS Spying Scandal

An investigation into how the IRS shared private information about Conservatives has run into another White House cover-up. Once again we have an Administration that promised transparency refusing to cooperate with any attempt to learn the truth. In this case the White House has not officially claimed privilege; they have simply lied about what is going on. The Washington Times reports: The White House told Congress last week it refused to dig into its computers for emails that could shed light Read more […]

Is the IRS Spying on Taxpayers for the White House?

There may be yet another IRS spying scandal. I have already argued that the IRS should be abolished on Fourth Amendment grounds. The agency has access to private details of your life and, over and over again, they have been caught or suspected of sharing that information in order to target certain groups. With the whole Lois Lerner scandal, we have plenty of reason to believe that the Obama IRS is not bound by legality or ethics in what they will do to support the Administration. But this Read more […]

Use Royal Jewels Given to Michelle Obama to Help the Economy!

Michelle Obama received gift worth $70,000 from a foreign queen.   Here is a story to, uh, treasure from the local CBS station in Washington, DC: “State Department: Queen Of Brunei Gave Michelle Obama More Than $70G Worth Of Jewelry In 2013.” From furniture and food to fine art, members of the Obama administration received thousands of dollars in gifts from foreign leaders, but first lady Michelle Obama appears to have received the most expensive gift last year. The State Department Read more […]
