Breaking Bad on Health Care


The pretend “Demon Pass” vote in the House looks like it will pass Sunday. All the ifs, ands, buts and maybes seem to be breaking the Democrats’ way. It is fitting that AMC’s award winning Breaking Bad series has its season opener Sunday night. The show’s protagonist, average and ordinary high school chemistry teacher Walter [...]

HCR and the Long Retreat from Moscow


Jim DeMint famously characterized the Health Care Reform bill as President Obama’s Waterloo, a statement that earned him the disdain of every pipe-puffer and low comedian in the MSM Rolodex. While I stand second to none in my admiration for Senator DeMint I have to admit his critics were half-right (representing a one-time 50% improvement [...]

Democrats Drop Deem and Pass. Good News or Bad News?


This is breaking news: Democrats in Congress have abandoned deem and pass (or the slaughter house rule). After thinking about it for a while, I realized that my initial reaction may have been wrong. As Ed Morrissey explains at Hot Air:
If anyone wonders which it is, Major Garrett of Fox News helpfully tweeted that he [...]

Would You Buy a Used Car From Nancy Pelosi?


Like a used car salesman, giddy at the prospect of unloading an old Ford LTD, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, is flaunting yesterday’s Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score as proof that Utopia costs nothing.

Monica Conyers & Hipsters on Food Stamps


Former Detroit Councilwoman Monica Conyers clutched a $1,000 Louis Vuitton handbag as she emerged from a chauffeured Lincoln Town Car to attend her sentencing for a bribery conviction.
Just days later, a federal judge declared her indigent and appointed a public defender to represent her. Now taxpayers will foot the bill for the “destitute” Mrs. Conyers’ [...]

Remember when civil disobedience was cool?


Media Matters is now pretending to be outraged about Rush Limbaugh talking up “noncompliance with the health care reform legislation once it’s signed into law” for “the third time.”
Here’s Rush yesterday:
But I just can’t — I can’t — just don’t believe that here we are in 2010, and in three days the United States of [...]

From the Writings of David Horowitz: March 18, 2010


It will probably come as a surprise to many people, both friend and foe alike, that I am opposed to any attempt to fire Ward Churchill for the essay (now part of a book) that has become notorious in which he denounces his own country as a genocidal empire, supports America’s [...]

How far will Pelosi and Co. go to pass ObamaCare?

Obama Dodges Every Single Question During FOX Interview with Bret Baier


I wish I could say I heard anything new or interesting in President Barack Obama’s interview with Bret Baier, but all I got was the same old dishonest, deceptive and unsubstantiated double talk.
Baier’s first question was whether Obama supported the Slaughter Strategy. He never answered the question, and went off on his standard campaign style [...]
