If You’ve Ever Wondered What The Internet Looked Like In 1934, You’ll Love ObamaNet

Obama’s FCC really did it. They really voted to regulate the internet. They dusted off a 1934 law used to rein in Ma Bell and said those rules need to apply to your home broadband connection in 2015. Forward, into the past! Forget visions of “half fast” internet. Those days are gone now. Henceforth the internet will run at the speed of government. And the government will decide who can connect. The government will decide how you’ll connect. A bureaucrat will determine if your internet usage is in “the public interest.” And fine you if it isn’t. How many of […]

Grand Old Cavemen

  “I told you guys the Senate GOP would screw us over on DHS funding, but even I had no idea Mitch McConnell would capitulate so easily. I assumed he’d do a major song and dance first, but instead he just went all Ned Beatty in Deliverance the moment Barack Obama looked at him funny.” –Eunuch Mitch McConnell Squeals Like a Pig “This is a total victory for the Obama position,” said a GOP senator unhappy with McConnell’s plan “Counterfeiters use the reputation of a trademark, which brand manufacturers have built up on the basis of the quality of their […]

Activist NJ Judge Rules Against Gov. Christie: Greedy Unionistas Get Theirs Come Hell Or High Water

  New Jersey is broke. That fact is not in dispute. But greedy public employee unionistas sued to force Governor Chris Christie into fully funding their gold-plated pension system. And an activist judge said “yes.” In a significant blow to Gov. Chris Christie, a judge ruled today that the governor broke a law he signed by cutting $1.57 billion from a pension payment this year, and must now work with state lawmakers to restore the money. Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson sided with a group of public worker unions who sued to stop Christie from slashing the payment to New […]

Charlie Daniels: Guns, Not Jobs Is The Way To Deal With ISIS

  Hat/Tip to CNSNews.com. Charlie Daniels is a Great American. He unabashedly supports our troops, the United States, truth justice and the American way. Here is his latest Op-Ed in its entirety. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Guns, Not Hot Air and Rhetoric – the Only Answer to the ISIS Problem By Charlie Daniels If anybody has ever asked for a no holds barred, no rules of engagement, kill or be killed war it is the bunch of bloodthirsty radical Islamic crazies who call themselves The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, ISIS or The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, ISIL. Levant […]

How Do You Fix A Solar Energy Fiasco $88 Million In The Hole? Throw More Money At It!

Why waste a mere $88 million, when you can waste millions more? Yup. That tri-county solar energy debacle I wrote about last week is getting a taxpayer bailout. Three counties have a solution to salvage an $88-million-dollar solar project that went bust: borrow more millions to pump into the project and hope it will eventually turn a profit and ease the pain to taxpayers, officials said. Some officials view the solution as damage control. Others are calling it a repeat of a mistake, one they will fight to avoid. Freeholders in Sussex, Morris and Somerset counties will vote on settlement […]

Habitat For Humanity Builds Luxury Beach House For NJ Politician

  Habitat for NJ Assemblywoman Linda Stender’s Husband, charity tapped for luxury beach house When you donate to Habitat for Humanity, you expect your money will go toward helping needy people put a roof over their heads. And it’s kinda hard to believe an NJ Assemblywoman and her husband qualify as “needy,” especially since she’s a well-connected Democrat who was just appointed to a $90,000 per year job at the Union County Improvement Authority, on top of her $49,000 legislative salary. But Monmouth County’s Coastal Habitat for Humanity thought differently. They approved the Stenders’ application for Hurricane Sandy relief with […]

More ObamaCare Incompetence: HHS Sent Out 800,000 Bad Tax Forms To ObamaCare Enrollees

  These clowns can’t get anything right. Today’s Obamacare debacle? 800,000 bogus tax forms. The White House has some bad news for those ObamaCare-insured taxpayers who prepared for early tax filing — or actually had already filed. That form that they sent out about premiums and subsidies? More than ten percent of them turned out to be wrong, so … you’ll have to either wait to calculate your taxes, or have a do-over. They’ll mail corrected forms “soon.” Hey, filing your taxes wasn’t painful enough, right? It’s not just the federal exchange, either. The Covered California system issued 100,000 erroneous […]

Daniel Boone TV Show to be Rebooted for 21st Century Audience

The Daniel Boone show, one of the more popular TV shows from the 1960s is returning to television. “We are pleased to bring the Daniel Boone name into the 21st century” read the statement. The original TV show starring Fess Parker was and still remains very popular.  As such we will be bringing him back to prime time.  We will update the character slightly while still respecting him. In the 1960s incarnation Boone was a “trailblazer” who carved through the Kentucky wilderness assisted by his loyal sidekick the native American, Mingo. Network executives, concerned that this would be offensive to […]

Newsmax Editor: Jeb Bush is a “Strong Conservative.”

  Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Editor’s Note: CH2.0 is at this time NOT endorsing any candidate for the 2016 Presidential Election. We are merely reprinting Christopher Ruddy’s article on why he thinks Jeb Bush is a Conservative candidate. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Jeb Bush a Reaganite? Oh, Yes He Is By Christopher Ruddy I am quite baffled that some folks think Jeb Bush is an establishment candidate and not a true conservative. Granted, the former Florida governor’s support for the Common Core educational initiative and immigration reform might give that impression. But the truth is, Jeb Bush governed Florida as a strong conservative, and […]

Moving Further From The Light

William Shakespeare wrote these words for Macbeth, but insert the president’s name for the first word, “Life,” and you could not have a better description of America’s Nero: “[Obama‘s] but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more: it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.” – President Obama, America’s Nero “At the risk of being melodramatic, it must nonetheless be said: We are in a war for civilization itself, and Barack Obama is not on the right side.” — […]

Obama Admin To Egypt: Please Stop Bombing ISIS, We’re Trying To Find Them Jobs

  Remember that day after Pearl Harbor when FDR told Harry Hopkins to set up a WPA office in Tokyo because the “root cause” of Japanese aggression was the lack of good jobs? Yeah, good times. And it’s what probably would have actually happened if Barack Obama had been our president back then. Shudder. Two incomprehensible news items today. Item #1 — State Department spokesidiot Marie Harf: We cannot kill our way out of the IS problem; we have to address the “Root Causes” and give the IS killers jobs. I hear Target is hiring greeters. And not for nothing, […]

Obama’s Executive Amnesty: Thinly Veiled Get Out The Illegal Vote Scheme

  The whole point of Obama’s Executive Amnesty is to give illegal aliens the ability to vote My conservative friends have noticed a “loophole” in Obama’s Executive Amnesty plan — it’ll be trivially easy for non-citizens to register to vote. President Obama’s temporary deportation amnesty will make it easier for illegal immigrants to improperly register and vote in elections, state elections officials testified to Congress on Thursday, saying that the driver’s licenses and Social Security numbers they will be granted create a major voting loophole. While stressing that it remains illegal for noncitizens to vote, secretaries of state from Ohio […]

Obama And His Selfie Stick: Or How To Demean The Office Of The President

See more unbridled narcissism here: Which image of Obama mugging for BuzzFeed’s cameras diminishes the presidency the most, ranked The dwindling number of America’s Obamunists are wont to defend such unseemly presidential preening as mere horseplay.  No argument here.  In what other kind of play would a horse’s ass indulge? . .

Bullying For Tolerance: CA High School Humiliates Kids Who Question Homosexual Dogma

  At Acalanes High School in Lafayette, California homosexuality is now compulsory, and dissent will not be tolerated. Because, Tolerance! Teenagers at a California high school were publicly shamed for disagreeing with speakers allowed to push an LGBT agenda during an English class, according to several upset parents. The Queer Straight Alliance at Acalanes High School, in Lafayette, lectured students in several ninth-grade English classes on Jan. 29 about LGBT issues, according to Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, which is representing the parents. During the class, the students, ages 14 and 15, were instructed to stand in […]

The “Random” Thought Of Barack Obama

  “For the last six years, Obama has acted as if the biggest threat to American security in that part of the world is the Israeli government…” – Charles Krauthammer “Obama followed up his recent probing and informative interviews with YouTube celebrities by granting an interview to liberal blog Vox, during which he claimed the terror attack on a Paris kosher deli was “random.” It isn’t clear what the president means by calling the attacks “random.” The deli shooter, Amedy Coulibaly, had previously pledged support for ISIS, and his wife even recently filmed a propaganda video for the group calling […]

How Hope can Kill the Progressive Agenda

The POTUS used “Hope” as a slogan during his campaign.  While we would argue that “hope” has nothing to do with Obama’s policies, there is a different context for it. The progressive agenda has nothing to do with hope; it is a proposal for a control mechanism, nothing more. Health care for all?  Not necessarily.  CONTROL of healthcare?  Absolutely! Financial reform?   Not so much. CONTROL of the financial sector?  Yup! Dealing with “Climate Change” saving the planet?  Not even close.   Massive redistribution program?  YES! I could go on and on, but I think the point is made.  If there is […]

If Muslims Were Dhimmis…

Hat/Tip to Claudia at IOTWReport.com. Sometimes it just takes looking at something from the other side of the issue to really clarify things. Such is the case with this short video, watch and enjoy. What an excellent way to explain the hell of being an infidel in an islamic country: “For 1400 years Islam has subjugated all other religions. What if, for the first time, Islam found out what it meant to be treated like a dhimmi?”     Learn more by going here. . . .
