Obama on Strategy to Beat ISIS: ‘I Dunno’

I can’t recall any time when a president gave a press conference about some foreign military crisis just to say, “We don’t have a strategy yet.” And yet, that’s precisely what President Obama did in talking about confronting ISIS, the Islamic caliphate army that has taken over much of Iraq and Syria. Besides make Obama look like even more of a weakling than he usually does, the comment does a couple of things. One, it signals ISIS that they’ve got an “all-clear” from the White House to keep Read more […]

Democrats Push Bill for an Inquisition

Unwittingly raising the specter of some of the worst moments of human history, two Democrat lawmakers are proposing a bill that would order the Department of Justice to scour the Internet, television and radio for sites or shows that encourage quote-unquote violent acts and hate crimes. Sen. Ed Markey of Boston and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York have proposed the one-page 2014 Hate Crime Reporting Act. According to a release from Markey’s office, the act “would create an updated comprehensive Read more […]

Fraudster-In-Chief Visiting Texas To Blame Rick Perry

Allen West writes of Obama’s trip to Texas to attack Rick Perry for the sake of the [Un]Affordable Care Act: …at a time when Mr. Obama’s approval rating is at an all time low (now in the 30’s), just a year after his reelection, you’d think he might remain in DC and work on solutions. Actually, the best approach might be to tell the truth, but nah, that ain’t gonna happen. So instead the Obama administration will demonize the private insurance industry and force their hands. As reported Read more […]

As IRS Scandal Grows, So Does Obama’s Irresponsibility

When an IRS official apologized for targeting Tea Party and patriot groups for harassment, at first it was President Bush’s fault because the office manager who was ordering his employees to stall conservatives’ nonprofit applications had been appointed under the Bush regime. When that didn’t work and it quickly became obvious that the IRS was engaging in a much broader policy of targeting conservatives, religious groups and even journalists who wrote stories not flattering to the president, then Read more […]

Federal Employees Being Paid Millions To Do Nothing

If I did nothing, I would lose my job. I’m sure the same goes for most people in the private sector. That’s the whole idea behind employment. Someone needs a job done, you do the job requested and you get compensated for your work. I suppose if I did find myself without a job, I could always find a position in the federal government. They don’t usually fire people for not working, as Senator Tom Coburn is finding out. He’s been doing a lot of research recently into government waste, a Read more […]

Rob Portman Obeys Feelings Over Objective Thought, Now Backs Gay Marriage

Rob Portman, Senator from Ohio once considered the likely choice to be Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate, has now come out in favor of gay marriage. Why? Because two years ago, his Rob Portman’s college-aged son came out as gay. Senator Rob Portman said it was at that point that he began to see the issue “from a new perspective, and that’s of a dad who loves his son a lot and wants him to have the same opportunities that his brother and sister would have — to have a relationship Read more […]

Unlimited Power and Absolute Corruption

Power is a familiar topic with conservative writers and thinkers. In 1944, Ludwig von Mises published his book, Bureaucracy, which may very well be considered the authoritative work on the (in)effectiveness of centralized power. Mises wrote: The bureaucrat is not free to aim at improvement. He is bound to obey rules and regulations established by a superior body. He has no right to embark upon innovations if his superiors do not approve of them. His duty and his virtue is to be obedient. Mises Read more […]

We Arm the Muslim Brotherhood Dictatorship

When I saw the headline, “Muslim Brotherhood inherits U.S. war gear,” I assumed this was re-telling us the story that the winner of the election gets all the stuff that his predecessor had. Whatever tanks or missiles or ships the United States sent to Egypt under Mubarak are now under the control of Morsi, the ex-Muslim Brotherhood president who has “given himself” unaccountable powers. (His status as “ex-Muslim Brotherhood is a minimalist PR move; he quit in order to run for President Read more […]

Has the RNC Become a Criminal Racket? Investigate, and Fire Boehner!

Many conservatives have noticed how GOP actions seem like the opposite of what GOP voters want. Boehner’s recent move against genuinely conservative Republicans has started what will hopefully be a revolution—or perhaps, a counter-revolution. Today, the top conservative blog (for now; we’re working on overtaking them) Redstate called for stripping John Boehner of his speakership: “Fire Boehner: We Only Need 16 Votes to Depose Boehner.” “Boehner and the House GOP Steering Committee Read more […]
