Underdogma: How America’s Enemies Use Our Love for the Underdog to Trash American Power (Hardcover) – Michael Prell “Analyzing and refuting the common assumptions of anti-Americanism is a critical contribution to the global political debate.

The fight against an unconstitutional power grab

Tom Cotton, the conservative Senator-elect from Arkansas, has been a strong voice in recent weeks against President Obama’s executive amnesty. At a time when many of our lawmakers cower behind the guise of moderate compromise, we wish more would stand up and defend the principles of real conservatism. Cotton, to his credit, has been front and center giving voice to those who oppose amnesty. On Friday, he called on Americans to jumpstart a phone-banking campaign to shut down the Capitol switch board. “In 2007, there were reports that the Capitol switch board  actually stopped working because so many people called, and asked their senators ...

IRS: A Culture of Absolute Power and Absolute Corruption

No other agency can invoke more sleepless nights, accounting anxiety and beads of sweat across the forehead than the IRS. Those three letters hold so much power, not only with the collection of taxes, but now the enforcement of health insurance. As comedian Jerry Seinfeld jokingly put it, “[They’re] like the mafia.

Lerner just latest example of power run amok in Obama Administration

Yesterday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to formally request that Eric Holder and the Department of Justice pursue criminal charges against former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner. Today, the House Oversight Committee is voting on whether to hold Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions about her role in IRS targeting conservative groups. Both actions are attempts to hold Lerner accountable for her leadership in the IRS targeting scandal – something the Obama Administration seems completely uninterested in doing. But that seems to be a common theme in Obama’s White House. Indeed, holding people ...

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 28, 2014 Tea Party Condemns President’s Attempt to Usurp Power from Congress Demands Congress Rein in Excess ATLANTA, GA— Today, Tea Party Patriots blasted President Barack Obama for using his fifth State of the Union address to suggest his plan to bypass Congress through the use of executive action if Congress stands in his way. “To hear talk of building on the ‘success’ of using the pen and phone in 2013 by acting unilaterally in 2014 if Congressional Republicans don’t fall into line is a mockery to our form of government,” said Jenny Beth Martin, Co-founder and President ...
