Law Professor Obama Doesn’t Know America is Not a Democracy

A number of times in yesterday’s “Can’t we all get along as long as you agree with me” speech, President Obama made references to “our democracy.” It’s important to note that before he was president, Obama was a law professor. At a 2007 fundraiser, he said, “I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president [George W. Bush] I actually respect the Constitution.” I was left speechless when I first read this. It’s pure political theater. On the Read more […]

Obama, His Umbrella, and the State of the Union

As the White House has been slammed with scandals such as Benghazi, Extortion 17, the AP phone tapping scandal, targeting FOX News, and the IRS targeting conservative groups, Obama appeared before the nation at a press conference. In the middle of answering a question about the IRS scandal, it began to rain. Obama had the “audacity” to call up two marines to hold an umbrella for him and the Turkish Prime Minister, stating, “Why don’t we get a couple of Marines [to hold umbrellas.] They’re Read more […]

Liberal Myth of Separating God From the State

Virtually every week there is some outrageous story of an alleged violation of the separation of church and state. They’re becoming so frequent that they are often met with a collective yawn. The crazy thing about all this is how removed these actions are from the clear intent of the founders — as seen in their documents, their actions, words, etc. A lot of times when the pro-religious freedom side fights back, we win. (That’s because the constitution and history are on our side.) But Read more […]

Does Taking an Oath on the Constitution Count for Anything?

News stories are making their way around that newly sworn-in CIA Director John Brennan took the oath of office on the 1787 draft version of the Constitution. “There’s one piece of this that I wanted to note for you,” spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at their daily briefing. “Director Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the Constitution that had George Washington’s personal handwriting and annotations on it, dating from 1787.” Anyone familiar with constitutional Read more […]

More Stupid Political and Anti-Gun Arguments

Some of the best and worst arguments about politics and the Second Amendment can be found on the editorial pages of newspapers. My aunt sent me the obituary notice from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette (Feb. 11, 2013, B-6) of a long-time neighbor. On the other side was a series of letters about politics in general and gun issues. The first one was about how Republicans are subverting majority rule. The self-described Democrat contends that since President Obama won a second term, he should be able Read more […]

Is Obama a Visitor From a ‘Morally Superior Civilization’?

David Brooks from The New York Times envisions President Obama as someone who “sometimes . . . governs like a visitor from a morally superior civilization.” Let’s see, support for homosexual marriage, killing pre-born children (called being “pro-choice”), forcibly taking money from some people and giving it to people who did nothing to earn it, and counterfeiting money in the name of stimulating the economy, is said to be “morally superior” behavior. By what standard? By whose authority? Chicago Read more […]

Obama’s Regulatory Burden 400% Greater than Bush’s

In his State of the Union Address earlier this year, President Obama claimed that his Administration has created fewer regulations than his predecessors. But a new report issued by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee shows that Obama’s regulations have been more intrusive and have imposed far greater economic costs on businesses and job creators. In total, The Heritage Foundation has calculated that the Obama administration adopted 106 major regulations in its first three Read more […]
