Like an illegal alien, I have decided to “step out of the shadows” and lay down a quick post. The reason why is that I’ve noticed quite a bit of crowing today about the House Intelligence Benghazi report from some of my friends. As much as I know how the fascination some people have over the whole thing perplexes them, I read the report and will explain why the conspiracy theories are not going to … Read more
So Obama gave his big speech last night about immigration. The big change is he will extend temporary legal status to about 4-5 million illegal immigrants. To qualify, they will have to have been here five years, have US citizen relatives and have not broken the law (I mean, other than the ones they broke getting here). There is no path to legal status, a green card or citizenship (at least, not yet). And, of … Read more
So Judicial Watch has finally managed to fight through the bureaucratic nonsense and the illegal maneuvering and lies from the age of Obama DOJ to obtain documents related to the Fast & Furious scandal using FOIA requests, and have posted what they have received on their site. Something already found since these documents were turned over on November 18th, lends credence to the belief so many of us have that the WH and the … Read more

The Obama administration included as many as 400,000 dental plans in a number it reported for enrollments under the Affordable Care Act, an unpublicized detail that helped surpass a goal for 7 million sign-ups.
Without the dental plans, the federal government would have had 6.97 million people with medical insurance under the law known as Obamacare, investigators for the House Oversight and Government Reform committee calculated, using data they obtained from the U.S.
Last night, the Senate defeated an effort to push through the Keystone XL pipeline project. This was ostensibly an effort to save Mary Landrieu’s seat in Louisiana. But I doubt passage would saved her.
I’m finding the arguments against Keystone XL severely wanting. Critics points out that most of the jobs created will be temporary. But those same critics insist that we should engage in massive stimulus spending to create … temporary jobs in … Read more
And by “this” I mean his threat to implement a vastly unpopular amnesty program – amongst voters of both parties – to buy votes from illegal aliens that would then be able to suck at the government’s teat and become dependents the democrat party could count on, that Black Jesus claims he will do by executive order if the wrascally republicans don’t do what he wants – despite the outcome of the last elections, where … Read more
For now, that is. Yeah, health insurers are stepping up to help Obama defend the despicable Obamacare law, and that should surprise no one. The law is terrible for consumers, but great for both government that wants to get its mitts into the health insurance decision making process and money, as well as a financial boon – at least in the short term – to the evil insurance companies that the left created this … Read more
A couple of years ago, Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe instituted a program that made Keynesians everywhere wer their pants with joy. Abenomic consisted of fiscal stimulus (i.e., spending), quantitative easement (aka inflation) and structural reform. The result?
Japan is now in a recession. Oh, and their debt is up 230% of the GDP.
Now doubtless the Keynesians will have explanations for it. Keynesianism can never fail; it can only be failed. The Hoover … Read more
No doubt, you’ve heard a bit about the Jonathan Gruber videos emerging this week. Gruber came to light earlier this year for videos in which he argued that the supposed “scribal error” in Obamacare was intentional — i.e, that states that do not build exchanges shouldn’t get Obamacare subsidies. These new videos show him slagging the American voter, boasting about how they deceived the public on aspects of Obamacare and basically acting like an arrogant … Read more
