UC-Irvine tries to ban the American flag

The student government at the University of California-Irvine recently tried to ban the American flag from common areas on campus. No, it was not a joke. The measure passed by a vote of 6-4 before being ultimately vetoed by the student body president. Still, it remained a blow to both common sense and freedom of speech everywhere. Among the many reasons listed for banning the stars and stripes at UC-Irvine was that sometimes, “freedom of speech…can be interpreted as hate speech.” It would take years and years to try and unpack that logic, but we’d start with a simple question: in what instance could the simple hanging of an American ...

Anti-Amnesty Leaders: New House Border Bill ‘Flawed,’ Could Be Bigger Immigration ‘Stalking Horse’

A new bill from Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, may be nothing more than a stalking horse for a larger immigration package that House Republican leadership seeks, anti-amnesty leaders tell Breitbart News... Continue here.

Dems Shuffling Obamacare’s Deck Chairs for Midterm Election Points

Despite the calls from those within the party to embrace Obamacare, some vulnerable Democrats – particularly in red-leaning states – are scrambling to fix the badly broken law. What has caused the cries and concerns of Americans to finally be heard by those in the Senate? It’s not really a change of heart, but the upcoming threat to their seat. You guessed it – midterm elections.   As politicians try to cling to their jobs, Americans are desperately doing the same as Obamacare has eroded the full-time workforce. Clarissa, a supervisor for one of the largest big-box stores in the nation, knows firsthand how the new healthcare law is ...

Obamacare’s Butterfly Effect: Food Production Threatened

Sunday marked the four-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act. While Washington-insiders like Ezekiel Emanuel are hailing its implementation as a success [1], those outside the beltway hold a much different, unfavorable view.   For produce farmers like Larry, the law’s stifling regulations and soaring premiums are wreaking havoc on their agricultural livelihood, causing some to rethink their level of production.   “Unlike the government, I have to make a profit in order to keep [my business] going,” stated the Washington State resident. “Obamacare is increasing my costs both directly in the form of costs on my ...

Obamacare’s “Surge” Falling Flat

As Obamacare’s launch continues to suffer from mismanagement and incompetence, the Administration is desperately throwing out words like “surge” and “best and brightest” to describe its new effort to keep the health care law from imploding. Evidence so far indicates these new pushes are falling as badly as www.healthcare.gov is. First, from The Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis, with emphasis added: During a recent speech in the Rose Garden, he said: ”We’re also redoubling our efforts to make sure you can still buy the same quality affordable insurance plans available on the marketplace the old-fashioned way, offline — either over the ...

False Flag Financial Freak-Out

“Never let a serious crisis go to waste,” was the mantra of Rahm Emanuel, President Obama’s first chief of staff. The “default” crises is the most recent incarnation of “crises management” in the Obama administration In both 2011 and 2013, President Obama, many Republicans and Democrats, and the mainstream media said hitting the debt ceiling will cause a default on national debt. Moody’s ratings agency disagreed, saying as long as interest payments are made, no default would occur. With regards to the actual debt ceiling, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) predicted the debt ceiling would not be breached until somewhere between ...

Chris Matthews’ Revisionist History Falls Flat Live

When Ronald Reagan was President, he was hounded by media and Democrat claims of extremism, too conservative, etc. When George W. Bush was President, he was given similar treatment. It’s amazing how things change. Now, liberals occasionally praise Bush for his willingness to work across the aisle, and Reagan is viewed as having been too moderate for today’s GOP. Enter Chris Matthews and the articulate body-slamming he took from Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) on government shutdowns. Matthews, who tried to declare that things got done under Reagan and then-Speaker Tip O’Neill, somehow forgot that twelve shutdowns took place during that era in ...

AFL-CIO Backtracks on Obamacare Support

Back in April, a major roofers union that helped usher Obamacare into law switched positions, calling for the law’s “complete reform” or repeal. In July, three other influential union leaders wrote a letter to the Democratic leaders of the House and Senate, claiming “perverse incentives [in Obamacare] are already creating nightmare scenarios.” Now, the head of the AFL-CIO is saying that while he continues to support the health care law, one unintended consequence is giving him heartburn: The head of the nation’s largest federation of unions admitted “we made some mistakes” in writing ObamaCare Thursday at a Christian Science ...

Local Tea Partier explains why amnesty is flawed

Across the country, Tea Party activists are communicating with their neighbors, friends, and family. John Morningstar of the Bradford County Tea Party in Pennsylvania reached out to his community with a letter to the editor explaining exactly why the Senate’s immigration bill is flawed. With John’s permission, we have reprinted his letter below: Bill is flawed EDITOR: On June 27, the Senate approved a very flawed, massive amnesty bill. It is commonly referred to as "comprehensive immigration reform," but the only thing comprehensive about the bill is its failure to address border security. The House of Representatives will now take up ...
