Are All Democrats, Politicians and Their Voters, Marxists?

Eagle Fighting for Freedom

 This past week the Senate Judiciary Committee passed Sen. Diane Feinstein’s gun control measure that outlaws more than 150 different firearms by a strictly party line (10-8) vote, despite a 2nd Amendment that clearly says “shall not be infringed”.  It doesn’t say “some firearms can be infringed”, or “some magazines can be infringed”; it says “shall not be infringed”.  State ...

We Were Sequestered Before It Was Cool

The Ministry of Truth for the Obama administration has been experiencing some traction problems in the DC area. The scare stories regarding the collapse of the air travel system in the event of sequester are simply not motivating people in spite of the fact the Mainstream Media (MSM) has dutifully spread the word. We are warned that in the event ...

The Benghazi Hearings: A Bipartisan Whitewash

God Bless America Eagle

I have heard testimony, all that I can stand to listen to anyway, on the Benghazi attack of September 11, 2012 and find it more and more disgusting as each day of “testimony” comes and goes.  No one on these “investigative panels” really wants the citizens to know what happened or why it happened.  If they did they wouldn’t be ...

Mullin Disappoints Once Again

Eagle Trusting Government

I attended a town hall meeting in Claremore on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 featuring Markwayne Mullin, the newly elected congressman from Oklahoma’s 2nd District. Some of his statements sounded strange coming from a “conservative” but one response to a question bothered me more than the rest. A man asked Mullin about the executive orders being used by Barack Obama to ...

A Citizen Challenge

tsunami

Chances are you haven’t heard (and won’t hear) about this Federal report from the Liberal media. Two days ago the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) released its Annual Audit of the United States Government for fiscal years 2011 – 2012. The government’s own conclusion is this: “… Absent policy changes – the Federal Government continues to face an unsustainable fiscal ...

Mullin in Boehner’s Pocket Already?

Eagle Trusting Government

Newly elected Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Ok 2) was on KFAQ radio’s Pat Campbell Show on Tuesday Jan. 8 to “explain” his vote for John Boehner as Speaker of the House of Representatives. His explanation of why he voted for Boehner seems to be “business as usual” in Congress. I thought we sent him there to oppose the business as usual mindset. ...

Dodging a Bullet; Congress Works to Avert Milk Spike

Glass_of_milk_on_tablecloth

It appears congress may find enough votes and keep the farm bill alive for another year. Apparently, the angst caused by the idea of $8 per gallon milk over the Christmas family table was enough to motivate bipartisan action within the agriculture committee of both the House and Senate. The current farm bill, passed in 2008, expired in September. If  ...

What the lobbyists don’t want you to know

congress

YouTube Description: Lobbying is a time-honored tradition in the United States, and it provides individuals, communities and private interest groups a powerful tool to directly advocate their beliefs to elected officials. But, as history has shown, this industry is also often vulnerable to corruption at the highest levels – a fact that has led many groups to call for a ...

The Lonely Position of Neutral

Screen Shot 2012-12-12 at 2.29.52 AM

I hate raising taxes.  I find high tax rates immoral.  However, we lost the election.  An increase in revenue is inevitable.  What’s perverse about this whole episode is that if we fall off the cliff – Democrats will get everything they want. They’ll get their tax increases, their revenue, and defense cuts.  They would complete their decade-long project of ending ...

Ellison shared the following photo on his Facebook page courtesy of We Are Michigan, a coalition ...

Welfare State Advocate Spews Inaccuracies on PBS NewsHour

Screen Shot 2012-12-07 at 6.37.24 PM

The PBS NewHour has yet to invite a hard core conservative on the program to talk about the fiscal cliff.  Last week, they had NYT’s columnist, left-wing economist, and Obama cheerleader – Paul Krugman to detail his view.  Then, they had Sen. Bob Corker ( R-TN), but the December 6 broadcast was the most interesting. PBS invited the Norquist of ...

Let Obama Leap Off the Fiscal Cliff Alone

Fiscal Cliff Cartoon Blog Version

The editorial cartoon on the left perfectly summarizes the political situation surrounding fiscal cliff negotiations. The lesson is Republicans will be blamed regardless. CNN and Pew Research Center polls show a majority of the public will blame the GOP if the country goes over the cliff, even if Speaker Boehner fetches coffee for Obama during negotiations and compliments Michelle on ...

Speaker Boehner – What Are You Doing Up There?

Screen Shot 2012-12-05 at 2.37.23 AM

Is it revenge of the squishy Republicans?  It sure isn’t the reaffirmation of conservatism within the Republican Party.  On December 4, Matthew Boyle at Breitbart reported that the House GOP had begun purging conservatives from various committees.  In a time when Republicans need strong, principled conservatives to thwart the aggressive expansion of the state under Obama, Speaker Boehner and company inanely decide ...
