American Stupidity Is Escapism & Wishful Thinking, Not Lack of Intelligence

It is escapism and wishful thinking that gives us self-destructive policies like Obamacare. Jonathan Gruber never really fooled anyone. One of the great mysteries and evils of the human condition is the reality of self-deception. People of perfectly adequate (or better) intelligence will commit themselves to delusions that they find comforting. People are constantly tempted to believe that their lives can become magically better if only the right magician will use the right spell. Jonathan Read more […]

Lies about Obamacare: Are You Really Surprised?

Did you even believe the lies about Obamacare? Before last week, you had probably never heard of Jonathan Gruber. Gruber is the MIT economist who was once considered to be the intellectual architect behind Obamacare.  Nancy Pelosi now says he had nothing to do with Obamacare.  But back in 2009 she was quoting him publically and endorsing his published opinions on the matter. In any event, you have now heard about him because a series of videos have surfaced in which he candidly Read more […]

Grubers Get Power and Influence while Happers are Ignored

How do Progressives get power and influence? By lying… or Grubering, if you will. Whenever a Progressive talks about so-called “Climate Change”—or any other alleged “crisis” that needs “emergency action”—please use this line: “Remember Jonathan Gruber.” Gruber should become the proverbial poster-child–a perpetual meme–for opposing every Leftist cause.

Trey Goudy on Jonathan Gruber

In case you need a recap of the Jonathan Gruber affair: Over and over, apparently, Mr. Gruber called Americans “stupid” while at the same time taking taxpayer checks to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Or is there at least an equal measure of foolish citizen trust that was extended—believing such officials would never flat-out lie in order to commit fraud against the American people. Well, they will. Lesson Read more […]

Washington Post Defends Jonathan Gruber, Obamacare Liar

Jonathan Gruber, Obamacare liar and architect, gets a puff piece. Here is how the Washington Post handles the admission of what we all already knew was true: “Who Is Jonathan Gruber.” Jonathan Gruber is probably having a hell of a day. The MIT economics professor, best known until now for his key role advising the Obama administration on the Affordable Care Act, has come under attack after year-old video of a University of Pennsylvania panel surfaced that featured him referring to the Read more […]

Anti-Nature As Obamacare NewSpeak: “Artificially” Is The New Word For Naturally

Chuck Todd had Jonathan Gruber of MIT on his show. Todd introduces Gruber as “one of the primary architects” of both Romneycare and Obamacare. This was good since it shows us that “intellectuals” are in a revolt against reality and reason. Here’s Gruber’s argument for why the Affordable Care Act is working fine when it forces people to lose their health insurance coverage: We currently have a highly discriminatory system where if you’re sick, if you’ve been sick or [if] you’re Read more […]
