The Debt Limit Debate as Seen Through Groundhog Day Glasses

We all remember Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, the movie where one day in history just kept repeating itself. Well let’s look at the Debt Limit debate through the prism of Groundhog Day:    

President Obama’s Top Ten Most Divisive and Un-Constitutional Executive Actions

Since he took office in January of 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama has flouted the rule of law which is the bedrock America was founded on. He has visibly encroached upon and exceeded the boundaries set forth in the United States Constitution. Now Obama hasn’t written more executive orders than his predecessors, in fact, in his first five years he is on par with other one term presidents. But in his case,it isn’t the quantity, it’s the quality of the EOs.   The Heritage Foundation has taken the time to compile a list of the top ten most egregious un-Constitutional […]

Amazing Feats of Dexterity: MSNBC Host Chris Hayes Conducts Interview with his foot in his mouth.

Nevada Assembly Woman Michelle Fiore was at the Bundy ranch in Nevada and happened to be interviewed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes. Folks, let me tell you – this was better than any episode of Celebrity Death Match. Fiore was fierce, remained composed and never once took the bait of the left’s talking points. Despite Hayes’ repeated attempts to steer the conversation towards painting rancher Cliven Bundy as a criminal, Fiore stood her ground and gave better than she got. She stuck to her original premise that not only is the amount allegedly owed in question, and additionally where does […]

States’ Rights Back in the News

The timing of this is spot on, even though it’s been in the works long before the Cliven Bundy standoff in which the Bureau of Land Management tried to use heavy handed tactics and run rough shod over a United States Citizen.  This is just the latest example of states growing weary of the federal government usurping their authority and autonomy. Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including her counterparts from Idaho and Montana, during a press conference after the daylong closed-door summit. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee addressed the group over lunch, Ivory said. […]

‘Who Gets the Water?’ Government Destroys Farmers

I what seems to be the government’s war on all things productive, farmers are also a target.  800,000 square miles are farmland have been deprived of water by government edict, causing farmers to lose everything.  Here is some video… The farmers suffer, the people suffer, the workers suffer, and the government laughs. Welcome to the USSA. H/T:  The Minority Report

Obama Sold Americans Lemons. Thirteen Americans Died In Those Lemons

After finally solving problems with computer viruses this past weekend, there was an e-mail waiting from a good friend. He was wondering about General Motors’ recall of 2.6 million cars for faulty ignition switches, which have caused at least thirteen deaths, and what the Obama administration knew at the time it was illegally bailing out GM  with $49 billion of your money. Well, one thing we can say with  certainty is that President Obama was totally unaware of this problem at that time, because he never knows anything until or unless he hears it on MSNBC. The truth is that […]

George W. Bush’s Stimulus vs. Barack H. Obama’s – A Look Back

When Obama came into office, he faced the bursting of the housing bubble and a big recession. His answer was to respond with a stimulus package, mostly full of spending, but with some minor tax cuts thrown in for lip service. But his predecessor also came into office faced with a big recession and he also responded with his own stimulus package. Let’s take a look at the way both men handled the problems facing each. As I said above, let us remember why the Bush tax cuts even took place. When Bush & Cheney took office, they faced a […]

Milwaukee County Sheriff Sets the Record Straight

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr sees the Liberal policies that have destroyed the black community for what they are, and he’s not afraid to tell you how he feels. His recently penned Op-Ed in the Washington Times lays it on the line and he pulls no punches. He gets it. He knows that big government begets dependency and dependency begets societal breakdown.   Believe me when I tell you, this is a must-read. CLARKE: Liberal policies have destroyed the black family

Obama’s “myRA” will sieze your retirement accounts

I hope folks remember Barack Obama’s State of the Union drivel this past January. Part of the lies and distortions spewed by the fraud-in-chief is his “myRA” plan. The one he touted to help people give up their retirement accounts to the government … er … save for retirement. When the government gets access to money, especially American taxpayer’s money, the need to spend that money is uncontrollable. There is somewhere around $19 TRILLION in private retirement account in America. Is there anyone, liberal or conservative who believes those in the government isn’t trying to think of ways to get at […]

The State is Out of Control!!

The State is out of control!! We have the Department of Health and Human Services using coercion to force businesses, universities, and religious communities to provide services – contraception, abortion inducing drugs, and sterilization – that they  ( Yes progressives universities, businesses, and religious communities are run by people, consist of people, who hold beliefs) believe are intrinsically evil. The State is trying to force them to contribute money to health insurance which would cover these “medical procedures” (killing a person is not medicine) which violates their beliefs, goes against their conscience and clearly violates their first amendment rights. I […]

Will The Government Steal Your Savings? It’s More Likely Than You Think?

This has been a recurrent theme for several years.  It’s been simmering on the back burner, so to speak, but it continues to get some attention from time to time.  The issue is savings.  Whether it be your 401k, or your IRA, or even a savings account; the democrats has been eying them like a crackhead views their pipe.  Big government has wasted trillions on making more poor people, creating dependency, paying off contributors, punishing enemies, arming those that kill Christians, and trying to prop up their union buddies.  Now, after building up an unsustainable debt, they need another fix, […]

Did the Federal Government ‘Cook the Books’ Regarding Climate Data?

One of the criticisms of global cooling global warming climate change The Big Lie, is that it’s not really scientific, but instead a predetermined destination, with climate data published to support it.  Of course, only climate data that “fits” is allowed, and when reality doesn’t match the narrative, reality will be manufactured.  That is exactly the allegation being made regarding the Federal Government’s contributions to the “settled science” of global cooling global warming climate change The Big Lie. Yet another smoking gun in the fraud-filled field of “climate science” has been discovered and this one appears to be even more […]

More of Obama’s Thug Tactics, con’t.

As reported here at Conservative Hideout previously, the Obama administration is steeped in what can be described as Chicago Thug Political Tactics. Unfortunately, the liberal policies of FDR and LBJ gave vast amounts of money to the political leaders in Chicago to consolidate their choke hold on the city, and therefore, the entire state. “The New Deal of the 1930s and the Great Society of the 1960s gave the Democratic Party access to new funds and programs for housing, slum clearance, urban renewal, and education, through which to dispense patronage and maintain control of the city.” Since Obama cut his […]

Life is not fair and never has been. That’s the way the 0.1 percenters like it!

The government and their sycophants in the media never tire of telling us how well the economy is doing (just look at the stock markets, they say) or how we have had umpteen consecutive months of private sector job growth. Those who are not brain-dead know that this so-called recovery has been a disaster for most Americans. Millions of unemployed Americans have given-up looking for work, which makes the BLS unemployment numbers look better than they really are. Real  income for the middle class has been falling since at least the year 2000 and our president proudly talks about how […]

Stupidity and the Daily Kos

You know the typical liberal is about as dumb as … oh … a brick? I know, I know, “that’s offensive” Steve and you should be kind and tolerant of those you don’t agree with. Perhaps, but I’ve learned that “tolerance” should kinda go both ways, and liberals have the tendency to say the most offensive, vitriolic and perverse things about conservatives. Then get their little panties in a wad when called to task on it. If you read the About Cry and Howl page you will notice that I’m really tired of being nice to dumbasses. (forgive me) Conservatives don’t […]

Unemployment Down Due to People Getting Jobs, or People Giving up and Dropping out?

If you believe the Obama administration, or his sycophants in the MSM, the unemployment rate is down because of the President’s exceptional leadership and policies in the face of the racist GOP.  This should not come as a surprise, nor should we be surprised that the unemployment rate is really down due to the fact that so many people have dropped out, and given up on trying to find a job.  The Federalist has more… According to new data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released this morning, the U.S. economy last month added 74,000 new payroll jobs, while the […]

Crises Response by Two Presidents: A Look Back

As we head into the new year, with an eye on the upcoming, all-important mid-term elections, let’s take a look back at how two different presidents handled a crisis, shall we? These events are separate; each having their own hurdles and problems, but both tied to the same geographic area. On one hand, we have President George W. Bush and one of the major crises of his administration – that would be Hurricane Katrina. And on the other, we have President Barack H. Obama and his response to the Gulf Oil Spill. On April 20, 2010 the deep water oil […]

ObamaCare Damage: 70% of California Doctors Avoiding ObamaCare

Remember when the President Obama told us that if we liked our doctors, we could keep them?  Well, we now know that this was a lie.  However, the extent of how big a lie it was is up for debate.  However, it seems that at least in California, is a 70% lie, as that is how many doctors are refusing to participate in ObamaCare plans… This isn’t some far right wing think tank that’s making this claim. It’s the largest medical association in California: An estimated seven out of every 10 physicians in deep-blue California are rebelling against the state’s […]

Nanny State Alert: Welfare Mother Explains Why She Stays on Welfare

If you ever wondered about the source of inter generational poverty, it’s name is government.  Check this out… It has all the hallmarks, like the penalization of success and the rewarding of failure. The incentive to stay in the system vs. working. It’s all there. This is exactly where the democrats want them, dependent, and ignorant. A permanent underclass is necessary to keep democrats in power. Since the slaves on the government plantation have been convinced that they cannot survive in the real world, they will show up at the polls to keep the gravy flowing. after all, those “evil […]

Some Thoughts on Veteran’s Day

Veterans should hold a place in our society that is special. I know that they hold a place in my heart. My father served in WWII with the Marines in the first invasion of Okinawa. He was 150 miles from the Japanese mainland when for the first time in his life he saw a mushroom cloud. Dad told me that his unit had already received orders to go the China coast in an effort to surround Japan. Thank God he did not have to go. My younger brother served in the Navy during the first Gulf War. He was on […]
