D’Souza in the Gunsights

Dinesh D’Souza, who has written a book and made a movie heavily critical of Obama was indicted last week on charges of breaking federal campaign finance laws. The allegation is that he made strawman donations — reimbursing employees and friends for donating to the failed senate campaign of Wendy Long so he could exceed the $5000 campaign contribution limit. D’Souza has responded that he broke the law accidentally due to a “misunderstanding”.

This has given … Read more

Do We Want Another War?

A couple of months ago, the Obama Administration and the P5+1 negotiators worked out a temporary deal with Iran on nuclear weapons. About a week ago, the first date was set — January 20 — for Iran to begin scaling down their program.

Congress is now working on a plan to scuttle this deal. Their bill, which is apparently one vote short of being veto-proof, would impose new sanctions on Iran, effectively ending the agreement. … Read more

Playing Politics With Kids

At present, there is no evidence directly linking Chris Christie to the bridge closures. But if there is, he will be in serious trouble. It’s pretty repulsive to punish innocent citizens to get at a politician. And when you’re talking about hurting children, that’s just disgraceful.

You know where this is going, don’t you?

A House Natural Resources Committee investigation has found that President Obama’s Office of Management and Budget ordered that sequestration cuts

Christie Hits A Scandal

Ok, let’s review what we’ve learned over the last five years about political scandals.

When Obama’s attorney general was part of a program that lost track of guns it was walking into Mexico and people were killed with those guns, we were told this was not a scandal.

When an embassy in a hotbed of terrorist activity was poorly guarded and the subsequent attack killed four people and the President’s UN Ambassador falsely claimed it … Read more

Putting The Obama in Obamacare

One of the things we’ve touched on occasionally how Barack Obama has been unilaterally rewriting parts of the Obamacare as problems emerge. On Friday, we had the most blatant example yet:

The Obama administration, in an 11th-hour change, announced significant exemptions for people who recently lost their insurance coverage and are struggling to get a new plan — drawing immediate criticism from the insurance industry and Republican lawmakers.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius

He’s Not the Messiah; He’s A Very Naughty Boy

I just knew the combination of Piers Morgan and Barbara Walters would produce something special. It did. Barbara admitted to what we all have suspected:

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?

BARBARA WALTERS: Well, you’ve touched on it

Lie of the Year: Your Healthcare

Politifact has chosen Barack Obama’s “if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it” as the Lie of the Year. Prepare for the Left Wing to suddenly turn on Politifact (as they did a couple of years ago when PF picked “Republicans will end Medicare” as their lie). Prepare also for all kinds of explanations as to why Obama’s promise was actually really correct, if you make assumptions X, Y and Z, even … Read more

Turkeys and Drumsticks 2013

For six years running, I have taken advantage of the Thanksgiving Holiday to give out my awards for Turkey of the Year and Golden Drumsticks. The latter are for those who exemplify the best traits in our public sphere. The former are for those who exemplify silliness and stupidity. I rarely give them out to someone who is evil; they are reserved for those who regularly makes me shake my head and wonder what they’re … Read more

Ranking the Recent Presidents

Gallup had an interesting poll out today asking people’s opinions of the last 11 presidents.

In assessing the legacies of the last 11 U.S. presidents, Republicans and Democrats diverge most in how history will judge Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush. Republicans believe Obama will be judged worst among recent presidents, while Democrats predict Bush will. At the same time, Republicans expect Bush to get a favorable historical review, and Democrats anticipate the same

Physician, Heal Nothing

It finally seems to have sunk into the Obama Administration how badly this Obamacare thing is going. There have been rumblings that the system will not be fixed by the end of the month (color me surprised). The total enrollment is something like 100,000 (only a quarter from the federal exchange). And millions of people are livid over having their policies cancelled.

If you’ve followed Obama for the last five years, you know what comes … Read more
