Democrats Undermining Defense for Over 200 Years

Stephen Budiansky — author of Perilous Fight: America’s Intrepid War with Britain on the High Seas, 1812–1815 ­— has written an excellent book that inadvertently reveals Democrat politicians — in feverish pursuit of imaginary utopias — have been busy undermining our national defense for the past 200 years. It began with Thomas Jefferson, whose fantasy… Read More »

A Better Way To Cut The Deficit

The Congressional Supercommittee has failed to come up with a deficit reduction plan. Personally, I’m thankful for that, since the very existence of the “supercommittee” was a Constitutional violation. I won’t get into a long explanation here of the debated cuts-which-weren’t-actually-cuts, or the sequestration of funds, or the odd process by which the supercommittee would… Read More »

State Medicaid Budgets Slashed / Where's the Outrage?

As we see President Obama currently campaigning across America and telling citizens that Republicans are out to hurt the poor, pollute the air and push Granny off the cliff, we see that the President’s administration is approving cuts to State medicaid healthcare programs, some of the them seeing as much as a 10% total reduction… Read More »

Obama: 80% Favor Balanced Approach [Fact Check]

Obama reiterated several times in this morning’s presser that 80% of voters favored a balanced approach to the debt problem.

A Rasumussen Report poll indicates that only 45% would favor tax… Read More »

Tim Pawlenty’s “Better Deal”

On Tuesday, Tim Pawlenty announced his “Better Deal” for the American economy. The plan may be appetizing to Conservative voters and contains many ideas that even moderates should be able to latch on to. Pawlenty starts by proposing a basic re-write of the tax code – corporate, business, individual, investment .. all of it. For… Read More »

Conservatives Want to Turn U.S. into Pakistan .. or something

The New York Times .. I could probably stop there, but Nicholas Kristof’s intellectually dishonest op-ed deserves rebuke. Kristof’s post asserts that Republicans’ strategy will amount to turning the United States into a backwards, military-led, middle-eastern-like country (emphasis mine). With Tea Party conservatives and many Republicans balking at raising the debt ceiling, let me offer them… Read More »

Democrat Plan Will Cause Country to Die Sooner

Obama-appointed Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius is supporting President Obama and congressional liberals in their concerted effort to kill America sooner. To make sure that no critically-thinking Americans stop them on their reckless spending binge, Kathleen channeled the oratory prowess of Alan Grayson who last year told us that Republicans want us to “die… Read More »

As New WH Deficit Commission Gets Underway, Sessions Debunks President’s ‘Framework’ And Repeats Call For New Budget

“As it stands now, we have no plan to have any real reduction of the deficit we’re facing from this Administration, or the Democratic Senate, let alone a ‘framework’ to reduce it by $4 trillion. But they pretend it’s so, and that’s offensive, and the American people are not happy about it. They know that… Read More »
