Obamacare budget funds a plague of bureaucrats and voter manipulation


Imagine that. Apparently President Obama goofed when he said universal healthcare costs less than zero. So said the Congressional Budget Office last week when they added a couple hundred billion to the bill for “administrative costs” and “discretionary programs.”
Oh well. Everyone makes mistakes. The grandchildren will understand.
These expenses weren’t included in the much-touted “deficit-reducing” Obamacare [...]

Damning Report and Damnable Liars: Dems Bury Health Care Cost Report


Let me be clear: Democrats lie. Incessantly and, it seems, compulsively. Evidence showing that their lies are, in fact, lies? No problem! Just cover your ears, sing “la la la, I can’t hear you” – and sit on the report. From Gateway Pundit:
The American Spectator reported, via FOX Nation:
The economic report released [...]

Dear Sarah Palin, It’s Time to Re-Think That Rand Paul (Anti-Israel, Pro-Kokesh) Endorsement!


Is Rand Paul Israel’s Ally? Calvin Freiburger asked this yesterday in light of a recently published statement sent to AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) by Dr. Rand Paul. Paul is currently seeking the Republican Party’s nomination for the Kentucky Senate Seat and is campaigning under suspicion of sharing his father, Congressman Ron Paul’s, Anti-Semitic [...]

Are Senate Republicans Fearful of the Left?


Even today with anger at the Obama administration and Big Government sweeping the nation, there remain left-leaning, accomodationist, and politically tone-deaf Republican office holders who are quite happy to allow ObamaCare to destroy the foundations of the American republic.
W. James Antle III has an excellent piece in today’s American Spectator on the topic.
Well, that didn’t [...]

Left Decries Healthcare History it Doesn’t Know or Understand


The Left conveniently invokes a glib and slanted version of history to push through its statist healthcare agenda. But when challenged by historically informed conservatives who make different and more accurate historical analogies, the Left cries foul and runs away.

The Intolerance and Bigotry of Openly Gay Military Service

In both politics and football, the collective team effort typically matters more than individual performances.

Bob Tyrrell: Liberal Unfairness vs. James O’Keefe – The American Spectator


WASHINGTON — Irving Kristol, the recently deceased godfather of neoconservatism, once said to me, “Fairness is not a Liberal value.” I thought about his asseveration while observing the Liberals' colossal indignation over conservative activist James O'Keefe's entry under false pretenses into the district offices of Senator Mary Landrieu D-La.. O'Keefe is the merry prankster who […]

Stephanie Gutmann: Doing Security the Israeli Way – The American Spectator


“Let’s do things the way the Israelis do.” That’s the latest buzzword in airline security. It’s nice to hear the Israelis being praised for something, but if we don’t understand what the Israelis do, we’re just going to be adding another layer of bureaucracy to an already overloaded system CNN spent an hour interviewing Isaac […]
