Harry Reid Controlled Senate Took 657 Votes…But Only Passed 25 Laws…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Now if we take the amount of money made by Harry Reid, and divide by the number of laws passed, I’d bet he’s got a pretty high average going… This is either ridiculous or a great thing depending on how you look at it…maybe both. Via Washington Examiner: New statistics from C-SPAN detailing the activity in the Senate over the past two years appears to defy the 113th Congress’ reputation as “do-nothing.” The public service cable operation that covers the Senate and House gavel to gavel found that the total number of roll call votes taken in […]

LA To San Fran In A Half Hour? Totally Tubular, Dude!

Hat/Tip to CBS Los Angeles. Like at the bank! It takes about six hours to drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco – depending on your speed – and more than an hour to fly. But in the future, the trip may take a matter of minutes. Designers of the speed tube called Hyperloop say they are one step closer to making that happen. Tesla founder Elon Musk says the technology is being developed with the help of about 25 UCLA graduatearchitecture students at a facility in Playa Vista. Hyperloop has teamed up with the students to create the tube […]

Merry Christmas, The 2nd Amendment Way!!!

Joe Biden Not Allowed To Go Out And Play

A year long investigation has recommended that Vice President Biden not be allowed to go outside. “It’s true” said a White House source who insisted on anonymity. I know Joe doesn’t like it. He gets all sad and mopey but it’s for his own protection. We used to let him outside to play but let’s just say that actions have consequences. Potentially embarrassing ones at that. The source is referring to the number of times Biden was allowed outside to play only to injure himself. A partial list of incidents involving Biden on the White House lawn was released to the press: On May 24, 2009 Biden […]

What Thomas Jefferson Knew That Paul Krugman Never Learned

  And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale. Letter from Thomas Jefferson to John Taylor, May 28, 1816. H/T to Robert Gore of the Straight Line Logic blog Of course, Thomas Jefferson wasn’t an economist with a Nobel prize; so what did he know? He knew the risks ofdeficit financing, that’s what! Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts? . .

Conservatism: What It Is And Why Is It Needed So Badly In 2016?

Obama is the most pure statist in American history to ever occupy the Oval Office. If you look at the unprecedented spending undertaken by this administration, then you see that we are on a course of financial ruin.

First Battle Between ISIS & US Forces: Like Reagan Said – We Win, They Lose

Hat/Tip to Shafaq News. “We Win, They Lose” – That’s what Reagan said when asked bout his strategy to deal with the Soviet Union. Well it applies today in Iraq as well. The outcome of the first battle between US boots on the ground and ISIS is also official.

Obama And Jamie Dimon Teamed Up To Pass Cromnibus: FED Vice-Chair And Maxine Waters Claim They’re Shocked!

It is being reported that President Obama and the CEO of JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, worked the phones to help John Boehner find enough votes to pass the CRomnibus bill. The only thing shocking about that is that Fed Vice-Chairman, Stanley Fischer, claims to be shocked that Wall Street Banks still have that kind of influence and Congresswoman, Maxine Waters, claims to be shocked that Obama would team up with a Wall Street Banker. First up, the Fed Vice-Chairman: As The Wall Street Journal reports, Mr. Fischer suggested rules set directly by legislatures can be imperfect, lamenting the role of […]

What Really Happened This Weekend Why I tried To block Obama’s Amnesty

Hat/Tip to Senator Ted Cruz in an Op-Ed in Politico Magazine, and reprinted in it’s entirety. What Really Happened This Weekend Why I tried to block Obama’s amnesty. By Senator Ted Cruz For the past week, Sen. Harry Reid has worked hard to prevent a vote on President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty. Finally, after considerable turmoil this weekend, we were able to force a vote. Only one month ago President Obama announced amnesty for roughly five million people here illegally. He did so in defiance of the manifest will of the voters; as he rightly noted, his “policies were on […]

Republicans Promise To Do All They Can To Lose Big In 2016

In the month since they won sweeping majorities in the House and Senate, Republican leaders have begun to sit down and plot a losing strategy for 2016. “The American people have spoken and we have listened” declared the soon-to-be Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). They have sent a clear message that they want socialism.  They want big, intrusive government. They want redistribution of wealth.  They want America to become a socialist workers’ paradise.  Just not as quickly as the Democrats would do it.  That’s why we promise to continue Democratic policies.  But the march to socialism will be moderate. […]

Must See Video: Tea Party Nation Founder – GOP Collapse Imminent

Hat/Tip to Sean Piccoli at Newsmax. History.com had this to say about the demise of the Whig Party which was brought about, in part by the birth of the Republican Party: Ultimately, however, the Whigs are best understood as an American major party trying to be many things to many men, ready to abandon one deeply held ‘conviction’ for another in the drive for political power. The party died not because its unique aura no longer appealed to voters but because it could not cope effectively or persuasively with what after the Compromise of 1850 became the great issue of […]

Federal Judge Declares Obama Immigration Action Unconstitutional

  Hat/Tip to Lawrence Hurley at Reuters and Lou Dobbs at Fox Business Channel. It’s not like it will make Obama stop and say, “Hey, I’d better rescind that lawless Executive Order where I gave amnesty to millions of illegal aliens here in the US,” but it’s a start. And of course, the Left is pushing back against this Judge already. (Reuters) – President Barack Obama’s new plan to ease the threat of deportation for 4.7 million undocumented immigrants violates the U.S. Constitution, a federal judge found on Tuesday, handing down the first legal ruling against the plan. The ruling has […]

A Parable About Life And The Importance Of Asking The Right Question(s)

The parable you are about to read was part of a an excellent post at Frankenstein Government. An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life… _______ “A fight is going on inside me,” the Chief said to his grandson. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.” “One is evil – he is angry, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.” “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.” “This same fight is […]

Thanks To California’s Lefty Birdbrains, Eggs Are About To Get A Lot More Expensive

  So I’m perusing the Star-Ledger business page during lunch and what do I see? An article reprinted from Bloomberg News about an upcoming price increase for eggs. And why are a dozen eggs going to get more expensive? Well, you can thank California’s birdbrain animal rights nuts for that. Eggs are about to get more expensive, as California moves to make sure hen houses are roomy enough to allow the birds to lay down, stand up, extend their wings and dance around. Farmers nationwide who want to continue selling to the most populous U.S. state are moving to comply […]

Obama’s Executive Order Grants 5 Million Amnesty? More Like 20 Million Says Sheriff Babeau Quoting Homeland Security’s Figures

Hat/Tip to Cathy Burke at Newsmax. By now nothing this arrogant, lawless, Liar-in-Chief says or does surprises me. And this latest revelation simply adds to the mountain of reasons that January 20, 2017 CANNOT get her fast enough. As many as 20 million undocumented immigrants will qualify for President Barack Obama’s deferred deportation action, says Paul Babeu, sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona. The number would be an alarming increase from the estimated 5 million initially expected to qualify under the executive action. But in a Monday interview on Fox News’ “Your World With Neil Cavuto,” Babeu contended that the new […]

‘It’s Basically Tree Bark Now:’ Students Up Complaints About Michelle O’s Lunch Menu

Hat/Tip to Kyle Olson at EAGnews.org. As we’ve stated before, this is an issue that we’ve covered thoroughly. Kudos to Kyle Olson at EAGnews.org who is also covering this intrusion by Progressive Liberal Michelle Obama who believes she knows better how and what to feed our children, than we do. Here in it’s entirety is Kyle Olson’s article: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ BALLWIN, Mo. – Students have no problem telling adults exactly what they think of the new “healthy” school lunches championed by First Lady Michelle Obama. “It’s basically tree bark now,” Parkway West High School senior Stone Ramatowski tells St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Is It Time For Trey Gowdy To Be Speaker Of The House? It Sure Looks Like It

Is it time for John Boehner to go? In this author’s opinion, not only yes, but “Hell yes!” But who would we like to see in his place? Well there are some good choices and some not so good choices: Trey Gowdy R-SC Darrell Issa R-CA Jeb Hensarling R-TX Kevin McCarthy R-CA Walter Jones R-NC Jim Jordan R-OH Steve Scalise R-LA Tom Price R-GA Paul Ryan R-WI Cathy McMorris Rodgers R-WA In all honesty, this author would have to say that the best choice for Boehner’s replacement would have to be Congressman Trey Gowdy from South Carolina. He’s a tough […]

Step By Step Guide To Replace John Boehner As Speaker Of The House

  Hat/Tip to Crow’s Nest Politics. Could it happen? Yes, it could, but we’d have to practically melt the phone lines in DC to really get the GOP Rank-n-File’s attention. Let us not forget that nowhere does it say that the Speaker has to be a member of the House of Representatives. They can elect anyone to that post. INSTRUCTIONS; 1. Click on the map or hyperlink and get your phone number and email address. 2. VERY POLITELY call your Representatives office. Inform the “STAFFER” that you would like to officially make your House Member aware that we do not […]
