Obama is No Lincoln

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Check out Jonah Goldberg’s observations on Obama’s Towering Inferno, aka the debt ceiling “debate”. Imagine you’re in a burning office building. Obama’s plan for getting out alive: “Okay, you guys break up into different groups and come up with a series of proposals about how we get out of the building. I will then negotiate [...]

The Commerce Clause Must be Redefined

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

The Commerce Clause is an enumerated power granting the United States Congress the power “To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes”. The Tenth Amendment states the Constitution’s principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the federal government nor prohibited to the states by [...]

Watch for the day when it becomes, marked: ‘Account overdrawn.’

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

This wonderful Michael Ramirez cartoon fits nicely with this small excerpt from Francisco’s Money Speech in Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”: “Do you wish to know whether that day is coming? Watch money. Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when [...]

Obama Channels Marx

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Was Obama off the prompter at his speech this morning? He let slip his belief and affection for Karl Marx’s classic quote: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”: The American Thinker blog has the story: Video of Obama’s Marxist moment. * * * UPDATE: Fred Thompson weighs in on [...]

Liberals give children a bad name

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

There are lots of children in Wisconsin schools, but they’re not sitting in desks. They are called “teachers” when they’re doing their job and not abusing sick leave to throw a temper tantrum at the capitol (I say “teachers” in quotes because I refuse to dishonor real teachers.) These union thugs have proven, as if [...]

Civility

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Just a small accounting on that new age of civility. Herman Cain Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. The Republicans are taking away my baby food! Nancy Pelosi: Republicans put women and children last. This will be an easy list to expand. Stay tuned. UPDATES: 17 February 2011: Hosni + Hitler = Scott Walker.

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 [...]

Obamacare = Crony Socialism

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Karl Rove had an excellent article in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, ObamaCare Rewards Friends, Punishes Enemies. The article details how the implementation of Obamacare is rife with waivers for unions, overreaching Federal control of insurance rates (typically the regulatory turf of the States), payoffs to the AARP, and more. John at powerline rightly calls this [...]

The Nanny State Marches Forward

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

“We could give it all back to you and hope you spend it right… But … if you don’t spend it right, here’s what’s going to happen.” — Bill Clinton, 1999 “We can’t just leave it up to the parents.” — Michelle Obama, 2010, referring to decisions on feeding children while talking about the Healthy, [...]

Calling a Spade a Spade

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Stanley Kurtz, author of Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, exposes the new organization, No Labels, founded by David Frum and William Galston. Here’s an excerpt from Kurtz’s article in National Review Online, David Frum, Speech Policeman: All Galston and Frum have done is to make explicit — and reinforce — [...]

The Obama Icon

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Here’s a well-done video on the power and danger of iconography and how the Democrats are so entrenched in the O-brand that it now is used in place of the Presidential Seal of the United States. Of course, this kind of propaganda is only possible when facilitated by a State-run media complex.

A Sleeping Giant

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” At the dramatic conclusion of Tora! Tora! Tora!, a reflective Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto delivers this summation of the successful attack on Pearl Harbor. As it turns out, it’s likely not an actual quotation of Yamamoto’s. [...]

Is Obama Selling Judgeships for Healthcare Votes?

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

It’s now clear that this whole Obamacare charade comes down to getting the House to approve the Senate’s bill. It’s all in the House now. Do not underestimate the tactics that the Chicago thugs in the Obama administration will employ to get the votes. If you thought Mary Landrieu’s “Louisiana Purchase” or Ben Nelson’s “Cornhusker [...]
