Happy Birthday to the Tea Party

Six years ago today, the modern Tea Party movement was born. Activists began to meet and put in place plans to take back our country from tax-and-spend politicians in Washington.

Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans – Ben Shapiro

Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans – Ben Shapiro From the editor-at-large of Breitbart.com comes a galvanizing and alarming look at the strategy and tactics of leftist thuggery. While President Obama and the left like to pretend that they oppose bullying with all their hearts and souls, the truth is far darker: the left is the greatest purveyor of bullying in modern American history. Bullying has morphed into the left’s go-to tactic, as they attempt to quash their opponents through fear, threat of force, violence, and rhetorical intimidation on every major issue facing America today. Ben Shapiro ...

Gruber’s apology: too little too late

MIT economist and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber attempted to diffuse his controversial remarks today by offering an apology during a hearing with the House Government and Oversight Committee. We’ve got news for Gruber: it’s too little too late. It’s too late to apologize for saying the law was purposely written “very tortured way” and passed because of the “stupidity of the American voter.” An apology, no matter how longwinded, doesn’t change or soften the fact that a chief Obama adviser sold the Affordable Care Act on lies. Committee Chair Darrell Issa got it right when he said to Gruber, “You made a series of troubling ...

Grappling with Obamacare taxes

Despite administration denials, it’s been well established that the Affordable Care Act is one large tax. Some estimates[1] put the tax-hike count in Obamacare at 18. In fact, there’s barely anyone the law doesn’t tax; it hits doctors, state governments, insurance companies, consumers, device makers and pharmaceutical companies. Consumers are already grappling with the individual mandate, and the tax it carries if they fail to buy health insurance. States are forking over $700 million in 2014 just to pay for the tax on new Medicaid health plans. And just a few weeks ago, an $8 billion tax[2] on the insurance industry took effect. There’s ...

Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling immigration

In a new Economist/YouGov survey conducted October 4-6, Americans disapprove of President Obama’s handling of immigration more than anything else. It seems the constant threats of executive action and daily politicization of the issue aren’t helping the administration after all. According to the poll 53 percent of Americans disapprove of the way the president has handled immigration.  His handling of the economy comes in second place with a 51 percent disapproval rating, and foreign policy and health care are tied for third place with 49 percent disapproval. After promising executive action on amnesty for illegal immigrants, the president ...

Americans don’t approve of President Obama

On August 31, President Obama’s approval rating sank [1] to a dismal 39 percent, with 54 percent of Americans disapproving. Anyone could have seen it coming; the president’s approval rating hovered at or near 40 percent the entire month of August. The president has also been lacking a little (okay, a lot) in the leadership department lately. It’s even giving him problems in his own party, which isn’t great for him considering the 2014 Midterms are right around the corner. The Wall Street Journal reported [2] on Tuesday that during his trip to the union state of Wisconsin on Labor Day, the Democratic candidate for governor refused to ...

Eric Holder Must Appoint Special Prosecutor or be impeached

Sen. Ted Cruz has a unambiguous message for Attorney General Eric Holder: Appoint a special prosecutor to investigate abuse at the Internal Revenue Service, or face impeachment. After asking for unanimous consent for a resolution expressing the opinion of the Senate that Holder should appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS, Cruz had a few choice words for what he thinks should happen next if the Senate fails to act.  Said Cruz: If this resolution is not passed and Democrats in the Senate choose not to put this necessary pressure on the Department of Justice, I have one very clear request. If Attorney General Eric Holder continues to ...
