Google Asking For Federal Grant To Pay Off Federal Loan: How Deep Are YOUR Pockets?

  Who has deeper pockets than the tech-giant, Google? The American taxpayer; that’s who. In this asylum we all have to live in, the absurd is the norm. But, under the so-called leadership of President Obama and his quest to make your electricity cost skyrocket, the amount of your money he is willing to throw at his crony friends, for their “Green Energy” fiascos, goes way beyond absurd. From Fox News: After already receiving a controversial $1.6 billion construction loan from U.S. taxpayers, the wealthy investors of a California solar power plant now want a $539 million federal grant to […]

Must See Video: Saratoga NY Police Officer Suspended Due To This Video

Hat/Tip to Epic Times and News10.com. Editor’s Note: The staff and owners of Conservative Hideout 2.0 have nothing but the utmost respect for Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders, Firefighters and the Military. We understand that the vast majority of police take up that calling to serve their fellow man and to try and make their corner of the world a better place. However when one of the boys in blue over-reaches the bounds of his/her authority as laid out in our United States Constitution, they make the rest of the LEOs look bad. Further, when video evidence of that crosses our […]

“Punishment Interest”: A Sign Of The Times

  Because there will be no shortage of bloggers talking about the mid-term elections today, Asylum Watch will offer up some other insanity, about which you need to aware. The doldrums of the Great Recession are still with us nearly five years after we were told the economy had returned to recovery mode. The Federal Reserve takes credit for saving the US economy from a total economic collapse. Apparently, the nearly $800 billion the taxpayers ponied up to bailout various banks and financial institutions (TARP) and another $800 billion you ponied up for President Obama’s “stimulus plan” was just so […]

Somebody Is Going To Have To Pay For This!

  The title of today’s post is a refrain we’ve all heard countless times in one context or another. When that context pits the government or a pseudo-government agency like the Federal Reserve against you, the taxpayer, the ‘somebody” that pays is always you. If this story run by the Wall Street Examiner doesn’t make you mad as hell, something is seriously wrong with you. I highly recommend you read this article, but for let me summarize it for you. First, as you know, the federal government pays the Federal Reserve, with your tax dollars, for all those Federal Reserve […]

Pentagon Trying To Stop Interview With The Navy Seal Who Actually Killed Bin Laden

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. The ever reliable folks over at WeaselZippers have done it again. They’ve taken a story in the headlines and summed it up with a short statement right before they link the source. And we here at CH2.0 agree 100% with their assessment. Ordinarily, I’d have great sympathy to the position that you don’t want to leak classified info. But since the Obama regime has already leaked a lot of the info, it makes me believe that their reason for wanting to stop the interview has less to do with classified info getting out, and more to do […]

The Mean Nanny (State)

The Nanny, when referring to the State, is about much more than making silly rules about the size of soda-pop you can buy or whether a church organization is allowed to give food to the hungry, because the Nanny can’t be sure the food is healthy. The Nanny State is above all else the ultimate authority figure and this nanny likes to use and abuse her authority. Would it interest you to know that, after decades of her perniciousness, the FBI has a file on one out of every three of you? This guest post at Zero Hedge relates the […]

When We’ve Lost Our Freedom, It’s GAME OVER

  When your freedom is gone, it doesn’t matter who took it or what “ism” they spout. All you see is the gun. Freedom has one foot in the grave in the US and the eventual coup de grâce will amount to a trivial irrelevance. Perhaps it will be the masters of our police state apparatus going full rogue, some sort of outrage by a group the government labels as terrorist, the threat of an epidemic, or something else, but only the stubbornly myopic do not see the totalitarianism on the horizon. – Robert Gore at Straight Line Logic In […]

“Big Brother AT&T” a true story by Bob

Hat/Tip to Jim Gourdie at Asylum Watch and Bob at Gonna’ Say It.  Long time friend of Asylum Watch, Bob over at Gonna’ Say It, experienced up close and personal the federal government’s capacity to intrude in your life. He published this true story on October 24, 2014. Ya’ll aint going to believe this. It really happened this morning, and the folks at AT&T admit it. Here’s what happened. I am a customer of AT&T Uverse TV, Internet, and home telephone. All my entertainment is delivered by AT&T, and they do a good job. AT&T is expensive, but after trying […]

You Know America Is In Trouble When You Have To Depend On The Likes Of Google And Apple To Protect Your Freedoms

  The march toward an Orwellian police state is picking up speed. From NSA spying, to Swat Teams swarming a company’s offices because they may or may not be using appropriate accounting practices, to the EPA ordering a family to tear down their house because it was built where mud puddles sometimes for making it a protected wet-lands, to the DOJ tapping the phones of journalists, to citizens losing all rights of due process if “suspected” of being a terrorist, and much more, your rights, as supposedly protected by our constitution and its Bill of Rights, are being eroded away […]

Ebola Lie: U.S. Military Will Not Have Contact With Ebola Patients; Ebola Truth: They Will Handle Infected Specimens

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Remember when Obama said that our men and women in the military won’t be hands on with any Ebola patients? Well, I guess that doesn’t apply to their bodily fluids…   So they wouldn’t “contact the infected person”, just their specimen? Alrighty, now… Via Breitbart: Over 500 American troops are in West Africa, and according to Maj. Gen. Darryl Williams, commander of U.S. Army Africa, said on October 16 while briefing reporters in the Pentagon by telephone from Liberia, none will directly be treating Ebola patients. However, he said that a select group of sailors will […]

MUST SEE VIDEO: Citizen Pulls Over Cop, Demands ID, Gets It. Lets Cop Off with Verbal Warning

Hat/Tip to The Free Thought Project. Editor’s Note:There are two versions of this video, CH2.0 chose to post the shortened one, but there are links to both videos at the bottom of this article. We here at CH2.0 must agree with sentiments expressed by The Free Thought Project about this video: If all citizens held their government officials to the same level of accountability that this man does, ‘government corruption’ would be a history lesson only. We all know that impersonating a police officer is punishable by law. But this case is turned around, as a citizen pulls an on-duty […]

Judicial Supremacy – Should We Stand Down And Let It Rule The Land?

  There seems to be more than a little confusion about a trend we see developing across America. That trend is the false theory that the Judicial Branch is superior to the other two branches that make up the government of the United States. This trend is not one that has just cropped up out of nowhere. Instead, it has been in the works for decades. Once the Supreme Court rules, everyone just bows down and accepts what they have ruled as gospel. Never mind how nonsensical the ruling may be. We need to keep something in mind. The Supreme […]

8 Ways the Obama Administration is Blocking Information

AP Washington Bureau Chief Sally Buzbee (AP Photo). Hat/Tip to the AP. Well, it is finally happening. The MSM who fell head-over-heels in love with Barack Obama in 2007-2008 are finally waking up to the reality of his Chicago-style political thug tactics. The fight for access to public information has never been harder, Associated Press Washington Bureau Chief Sally Buzbee said recently at a joint meeting of the American Society of News Editors, the Associated Press Media Editors and the Associated Press Photo Managers. The problem extends across the entire federal government and is now trickling down to state and local governments. […]

Democrats Now Hold Majority of Appellate Court Seats

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Quietly, almost as if he applied his inane ‘leading from behind’ strategy to filling the courts, President Obama has begun tipping the scales of justice over towards the left. President Barack Obama has been quietly reversing the federal appellate courts’ balances over the past six years, with Democratic appointees now holding the majority of seats on nine of the country’s 13 United States Courts of Appeals. It’s a little-noticed shift with far-reaching consequences. “With all the gridlock, it is forgotten that one of the most profound changes this Congress made was filling the bench,” […]

More Cash for Clunkers Fallout: Decreased Industry Output by 3 Billion Dollars

We covered the debacle that was Cash for Clunkers as it happened. Ulterior Motives in “Cash for Clunkers?” Cash for Clunkers: Revisited Cash for Clunkers Revisited: More Damage Done Cash for Clunkers Update: Jobs Created for the Bargain Price of $1,400,000 a Pop Additional evidence of it’s failure continue to come in years later.  The latest Cash for Clunkers evidence comes to us courtesy of the Lonely Conservative… This is how Democrats “help” the economy. The government’s “Cash for Clunkers” program – pitched as a plan to jump-start U.S. auto sales and clean up the environment by getting gas-guzzling vehicles […]

NJ Supreme Court orders state legislature to end Spousal Privilege in criminal cases

Our activist state supreme court is at it again. Legislating from the bench. Penning actual legislation, and ordering that it be enacted, forthwith. The New Jersey Supreme Court said Tuesday that the traditional privacy rights reserved for married couples — shielding their intimate conversations from public view — should no longer apply to spouses who are hatching or executing a crime together. In a 7-0 ruling, the justices said it was time to update the state’s law on criminal evidence so prosecutors can use at trial any smoking-gun communications they find between married partners. However, their ruling did not overturn […]

How many gay Americans are there? Less than 2%

Hat/Tip to CNS News. In 2011 Gallup conducted a survey, asking Americans to estimate how much of the population was homosexual. The results were surprising in that respondents thought that 1 in 4, or 25% of Americans were gay. Nothing could be farther from the truth, it seems. Contrary to popular belief, just 1.6 percent of American adults identify as homosexual, compared to 96.6 percent who say they are heterosexual, according to a large-scale, first-of-its-kind government survey recently released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In 2011, a Gallup survey found that 52 percent of Americans believed […]

Obama Administration Is Most Transparent In American History – Not!

Remember when Barack Obama promised his administration would be the most transparent presidency in American history? Yes, he really said that. Do you think he has lived up to that promise? Let’s do a little math and see. The IRS investigates conservatives, the EPA tries to implement rules to garnish your wages, the entire administration contrived to hide what happened in Benghazi, Obama himself implemented the DREAM Act via Executive Order, the list could go on and on. Over the past five years, we have seen countless scandals come out of the most transparent administration in American history. They even […]
