Any Ink is Better Than no Ink

Monday, August 15th, 2011

As I said in yesterday’s post, Ron Paul: The Man Most Feared by Washington, D.C., Congressmen Paul has the establishment on the run. Today, Roger Simon, the liberal Chief Political Columnist of Politico, gave a little press to Ron Paul, backhanded as it was. Ron Paul remains media poison Paul’s name was not mentioned in this [...]

Ron Paul: The Man Most Feared by Washington, D.C.

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Yesterday’s Iowa GOP straw poll in Ames was won by Representative Michele Bachmann. The Iowa native won by 152 votes. Who finished in second? Was it Rick Perry? Tim Pawlenty? Mitt Romney?

To Hell with You People: Finally, president Obama, our national-healer, gives a speech. It was a good speech. Indeed it was one of the first speeches in a long while that got anything like bipartisan support. Civility. New tone. No more martial metaphors. These were the takeaways.

The bi-cameral congress was an act of providence. I bring this up [...]

The Cruel Joke that is the Boehner Plan

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

Well, now that the GOP House has screwed the pooch and passed the Boehner debt ceiling increase bill, it’s worth reading Andy McCarthy’s Against the Boehner Plan to see what we got. To Thomas Sowell, the Boehner plan seems commendable because it would not only “spare the country a major economic disruption” but also “spare [...]

Constitutionalism

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Don’t miss Charles Krauthammer’s article in today’s National Review, Constitutionalism: Americans are in the midst of a great national debate over the power, scope, and reach of the government established by that document. The debate was sparked by the current administration’s bold push for government expansion — a massive fiscal stimulus, Obamacare, financial regulation, and [...]
