Obama’s 2015 Budget Takes Aim at American Gun Owners

gncntrl9The release of the proposed Fiscal-Year 2015 Budget released on Tuesday reveals that President Barack Obama and his minions have not abandoned their mission to control guns in the hands of U.S. citizens, even after the abysmal failures last year in the liberal-left’s quest to pass their […]

Obamacare Puts Your Personal Data at Risk

Smoking Out RINOs: The Much Needed Political Realignment

Obamacare and the Keystone XL Pipeline

 

By now everyone who has kept an intelligent eye on current events knows that Obamacare is not about making medical care less expensive or more available.

Jason Furman’s Big Lie

 

When the Congressional Budget Office projections came out on February 4, it was exactly what yours truly expected. After all, every time the government meddles in the economy the regulations end up causing trouble, which invariably means a loss of jobs. Obamacare was not going to be an exception. The only issue was what […]

Obamacare Chaos Threatens Health As Well As Insurance

obmcrcncltnsAffordable Care Act regulations have forced health insurers to cancel the policies of an estimated five million Americans. The final number of people who receive cancellation notices could reach seven to 12 million.

Countering The Ruling Class Amnesty Betrayal

mccn-lndsygrhmIt is high time to reassert those quaint notions of “compelling U.S. interests.” From the nature of America’s economic relations with the rest of the world to the definition of its sovereignty and the integrity of its borders, this people of this country are continually being told […]

The Senate and Federalism – A Failure of Checks and Balances

When the Constitution was amended in 1913 to allow election of U.S. Senators by public vote it was a major change in the way in which the federal government operated. It also radically changed the power structure within the legislature, to the effect that one of the major checks on federal power was removed, paving […]

Government Gridlock, Saving America From Even Worse Laws

Many hands are being wrung among the elite governing class about Congressional gridlock. The Democrats have invoked the “nuclear option” — allowing the Senate majority in effect to prevail by simple, rather than 60%, majority. (This will come back to haunt them if majority control turns Republican in next year’s election.)

Fortunately for us mere […]

The Nuclear Option: Misplaced Conservative Outrage

The filibuster has not protected the people against the tyranny of metastasizing federal power. The great tragedy of the Obama dictatorship was not the filibuster’s demise, but that House leaders blocked fulfillment of the very promise that made them leaders. Many of today’s worst problems are due not just to aggressive leftist Democrats who will […]

Obama: Is He a Dope or a Liar?

obmlrObamaCare is a blessing. And ObamaCare was passed by only Democrat lemmings.

And the fact that it is called ObamaCare and not the Affordable Care Act is a bonus. The Democrats running for re-election will not be calling Obama to campaign for his ObamaCare.

Abandoning Our Liberties And Livelihoods: Lessons From The Obamacare Debacle

You’ve got to hand it to President Obama’s partisans among the pundits: they won’t be deterred, no matter how bad the President’s policies prove to be.
