Greatest Hits- Taxes: A Historical Perspective

Taxes: A Historical Perspective:  It turns out that taxes kill jobs and cause a loss on revenue?  Who would have thunk it? With taxes on tanning salons and medical devises in the ObamaCare law, and the states proposing taxes on all sorts of services and products, I think it might be a good time to take a look at just how successful other taxes have been.  In 1990, a luxury tax was passed to go after the “rich people” by taxing things that they buy, luxury yachts, private aircraft, specialty cars, and the like.  They were dead set on making […]

Greatest Hits: I’m a democrat; You Owe Me

I’m a Democrat; You Owe Me:  Snarky Basterd took a shot at democrats, and did not miss. I’m a democrat. You owe me. I’m a democrat. I have my own pile of money, but I want yours, too, including the four pennies you have rattling around in the bottom of that peanut butter jar you frugal idiots like to use as a change holder. Give it up! You owe me. I’m a democrat. I just say I like the public school system. My kids go to private schools so that your kids can go to public schools and learn how […]

Greatest Hits: How to Disarm an Armed Attacker

How to Disarm an Armed Attacker:  I know there are fellow Conservatives that will ask, Why are you ever unarmed,” but let’s face it, you can’t carry everywhere… I saw this video recently via a friend on Facebook, and thought I might share it here.  It is always possible that you might be attacked by an armed criminal, especially in a democratically controlled anti-gun area.  So, here is the video. Of course, there are no guarantees, but this is better than having sudden onset inter-cranial lead poisoning.

Democrats Get A Taste Of Obama’s Arrogance

  Hat/Tip to Jonah Goldberg at Right Wing News. Even the slow to realize Liberals are finally beginning to get the idea that our President is a monumental asshole…to everyone.   These are not good times for the Republic (and if you laughed or scratched your head at me calling America a republic, I rest my case). – Jonah Goldberg But they are amusing times, at least for those of us capable of extracting some measure of mirth and schadenfreude from the president’s predicament. With the sand running out on the Obama presidency, it’s finally dawning on the president’s friends […]

Hey New Jersey, US Senator Cory Booker Says Hard Work Is “Not Right”

We know Democrats believe in voting for a living. But I never expected one to actually come out and say it so succinctly.   Not right: A min. wage-earning single parent of two must work 50 hrs/week to escape poverty. — Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) May 7, 2015   O.M.G. Hard work is what exactly? Overrated? Too hard? Not worth it? Only somebody who’s never held a Real Job in his life could believe such nonsense. .@CoryBooker Working hard to escape poverty is overrated, amirite?! — The Real Bepo (D) (@TheRealBepo) May 7, 2015   When I started out, I worked […]

SMOKING GUN: New Documents Tie Obama And Senate Democrats Directly To The IRS Scandal

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Why can’t the leadership in the GOP be more like Judicial Watch/ Thanks once again to Judicial Watch (and no thanks once again to the feckless boobs in the Republican leadership), conservative pundit Wayne Root just connected the dots that link Senate Democrats and the White House directly to the IRS scandal. The entire article is worth reading, but the short version is as follows: Root was targeted for audit in 2011, disputed the findings in Tax Court, and won in 2012. Only five days later, Root was again targeted for a separate […]

Disaster Area — Any Place Governed By A Democrat

    “I think we as a country have to do some soul-searching.” — Barack Obama “Barack Obama is right – America does indeed have some soul-searching to do, namely regarding the terrible mistake in allowing Mr. Obama to be its president.” — D.W. Ulsterman But bad as is the current pretender to the throne, it’s not only the man; it’s his Party.  From Vietnam to the Iran hostage crisis to the rise of ISIS; from Watts to Ferguson to Baltimore; from “what the meaning of is, is…” to “you didn’t build that,”  the tax-and-spend, cut-and-run resumes  of Democrats from […]

NO, NOT SUSPICIOUS: At least 180 Clinton Foundation Donors Also Lobbied Hillary State Department For Favors

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and Guy Benson at Hillary raises “Quid Pro Quo” to an entirely new level… Perhaps we can check Hillary’s emails to determine whether there were criminal wrongdoings. Oh, wait. The size and scope of the symbiotic relationship between the Clintons and their donors is striking. At least 181 companies, individuals, and foreign governments that have given to the Clinton Foundation also lobbied the State Department when Hillary Clinton ran the place, according to a Vox analysis of foundation records and federal lobbying disclosures…This list of donors to the Clinton foundation who lobbied State […]

Obama’s Iranian Negotiating Partners Attack And Seize Cargo Ship Headed For US Marshal Islands

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and the Tower. See? Obama kept telling us how peaceful the Iranian’s intentions were? The Hill reported more: The Pentagon says the ship at the center of the dispute is the MV Maersk Tigris, and is flagged from the Marshall Islands, according to Reuters. Separately, Iran’s official news agency said the ship was “stopped and seized” by Iranian warships. The Times of Israel reported: Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said the cargo ship’s master had initially refused an Iranian order to move further into Iranian waters, but after the warning shots were fired […]

Clinton Uranium Deal Looks Dirtier Than Michael Moore At An All-You-Can-Eat Fudge Bar

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. She sells seashells by the seashore… Hillary sells her country down the river… In other words: Putin Paid, Then UraniumOne Got Made The American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson highlights an interesting article by Michael R. Caputo, who once ran public relations for Renaissance Capital. He confirms that the Clinton-uranium “coincidence” in Russia stinks to high heaven. Even when I worked there, Renaissance Capital had close ties to the Kremlin – the relationship made Renaissance executives into oligarchs. By 2010, the firm had become a practical arm of Vladimir Putin. Nobody of sound mind would […]

Ted Cruz Sets His Own ‘Red Line In The Sand’: Congress Must Approve Any Iran Deal

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Once again, Ted Cruz displays the type of leadership that is sorely lacking in the Oval Office right now. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pennsylvania, have filed an amendment (#1152) to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, which would require affirmative Congressional approval of any Iranian nuclear deal before sanctions relief can occur. “The Constitution makes clear that Congress must approve international agreements like the one President Obama is negotiating with Iran,” said Sen. Cruz. “A nuclear Iran is the single greatest threat to our national security and […]

Second Amendment? Ted Cruz Smacks Down A Reporter – Hard

Hat/Tip to Mike Miller at Doug Ross @ Journal. On the 2nd Amendment Ted Cruz Mops The Floor With Reporter’s Attempt At A “Gotcha Question.” You’ve gotta love how he so Reaganesguely deconstructs, and thus takes the power away from the typical far left ‘gotcha’ question.   At a recent event, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz was asked the following question: “In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, a statistic surfaced putting support for background checks at 90%. Did you go against the want of the nation with your vote against Manchin-Toomey (a bill that would have required background […]

The Grandpappy Of ObamaCare Circles The Drain: UK’s NHS In Trouble

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. You mean the only problem with socialism is that you REALLY DO run out of other people’s money to spend?? African AIDS Tourists Overwhelming England’s NHS Writing at The Commentator, Vincent Cooper shines a spotlight on the fiscal tsunami engulfing the United Kingdom. …the NHS is so short of resources that patients in some areas had to be treated in a hospital car park. But if that is true, was not Nigel Farage right to condemn the health service for putting the treatment of foreigners above the needs of those who have paid […]

As American As … Apple Pie??

  Setting aside the legal criteria required to hold the office of the President, it doesn’t much matter whether a man was born in Oahu or Lower Slobbovia.  The essence of being American means subscribing to a set of principles on governorship as codified in the U.S. Constitution.  By that measure — which is the only one that really counts — Barack Obama (and by extension, the modern Democratic Party)  is as anti-American as it gets. Could he be: Our Muslim President? No other American President has ever been so partial to Islam and Muslims as Obama and it is […]

Netanyahu Beats Obama ~or~ It’s Morning In Israel Again

  HEADLINES: “NETANYAHU BEATS OBAMA” !! #IsraelElections #IStandWithBibi #KingBibi — Israel News Flash (@ILNewsFlash) March 18, 2015 Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. It’s morning in Israel, again. Benjamin Netanyahu defeated the left in his country AND ours. Netanyahu faced an insurgent left-wing party, likely because of his hard line against both Iran and President Obama’s horribly failed foreign policy. This is the first time the Israeli left came so close to coming back to full power in this post 9/11 world.   …Netanyahu’s Likud Party isn’t in such a strong position that it can control the whole government and seeing […]

Outspoken Critic Of Obama’s Iran Policy To Face Federal Corruption Charges

Bob Menendez, an outspoken critic of Obama’s Iran policy, will face federal corruption charges I’m sure the timing of this announcement is purely coincidental. According to an exclusive report published first by CNN, Democrat Senator Bob Menendez will be indicted by the Department of Justice on federal corruption charges. The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption charges against New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, alleging he used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts. People briefed on the case say Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on […]

Why Hillary Will Abandon Her Run For The White House

  Hat/Tip Alan Caruba at Doug Ross @ Journal. With scandals mounting, it is plain to see that Hillary Clinton’s plan to be the 45th President of the United States is floundering and she hasn’t even officially announced yet. The revelations, reported initially in the most left-wing newspaper in the nation, The New York Times, that Hillary Clinton used her own private emails to conduct public business, suggests that there are forces within the Democratic Party that do not want her to be its candidate for President in 2016. It’s not like Hillary did not know she was supposed to […]

King Obama Has Been Given The Power To Unilaterally Raise Taxes By…King Obama

Hat/Tip to Warren Todd Huston at Doug Ross @ Journal. Is there no limit to his power? Can no one stop him? President Obama really does think he is a king or an emperor of some type. Now he claims that he is going to use executive orders to raise taxes on us all. This arrogant prince thinks he can do anything he wants just by his say-so. No act of Congress needed. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unilateral executive action. “The president certainly has […]
