On Benghazi, the truth will come out

The White House, specifically Press Secretary Jay Carney, have seen finer weeks. But ultimately, that’s what happens when you obfuscate, attempt to intimidate, and hide the truth. The beginning of this week saw the release[1], via a Freedom of Information Act request, of a never-before-seen email detailing the White House’s response in the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. The email, written by deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, was sent with the subject line of “PREP CALL with Susan.” The email includes messaging “goals” for then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, including, “to ...

George Will: “Of course I want Obamacare to fail”

On Sunday, George Will said what more Republicans and conservatives should be stating loud and clear: we want Obamacare to fail. Why do we want it to fail? Again, Will states it excellently: Of course I want Obamacare to fail, because if it doesn't fail, it will just further entangle American society with a government that is not up to this. For one hundred years now, the narrative of progressivism —from Woodrow Wilson on – has been, progress will come, if, but only if, we concentrate more and more power in Washington, and more and more power in Washington power in the executive branch, and more and more executive branch power in the hands of ...

Tea Party Blasts Senate for “No Conversation” and “No Compromise” That Will Force Shutdown

Encourages House to Stand Firm Tea Party Patriots are calling on members of the House of Representatives to stand their ground after the Senate refused to negotiate on delaying funding of Obamacare.  “Harry Reid’s refusal to negotiate moves us one step closer to a shut down,” said Jenny Beth Martin, National Coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots. “His extreme position continues to threaten hard-working American families with the burden of Obamacare. This move highlights the arrogance of Washington, D.C., as the Senate refuses to live under the same laws they expect the rest of us to live by. “Congressmen and women—you are the ...

Why Obamacare will Fail in 2 Minutes or Less

Real Clear Politics has two videos outlining why Obamacare is likely to collapse, and how the collapse of Obamacare is impacting the immigration debate. First, George Will notes that one of the most necessary things for Obamacare to be remotely functional is young people signing up – and he points out that “young people are not gonna sign up if they can do basic arithmetic, which they can.” Exactly. What young person, especially the oft-unemployed young person, is going to pay far more for insurance than necessary, when the penalty for not signing up is a much smaller amount? Second, Brit Hume has a far longer, but just as important, ...

How will Amnesty Impact Social Security? Nobody knows

One of the key selling points for amnesty is an alleged positive benefit for Social Security. Media Matters, the Center for American Progress, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) are among the prominent figures claiming the Senate’s amnesty bill will benefit Social Security. And according to the “intermediate” projections from the Social Security Administration (SSA), they are right. Being aware that the Social Security Administration’s intermediate projections are frequently off-target, page 16 of the SSA’s report shows Social Security will benefit from the Senate’s immigration bill by $427 billion over the next ...

According to President Obama, you “willfully lied” this week

It’s right there in his tantrum speech yesterday afternoon: But instead of supporting this compromise, the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill. That’s right. When you stood up for transparency and the Constitution, you weren’t defending your principles. You were being dishonest. And your “dishonest[y]” helped the Senate stand against a possibly unconstitutional, rushed bill that would have done little to stop the kinds of shootings seen in Aurora and at Sandy Hook. Of course, the politics didn’t end with calling you liars. Apparently, you ignored “the murder of 20 innocent schoolchildren and their teachers.” ...

Will newly-unveiled EPA standards help or hurt gas prices?

From the agency trying to push gas to $7 a gallon: Bill Becker, of the National Association of Clean Air Agencies, said, "It is the single most important air pollution control strategy that President Obama will likely offer in his second term as president." The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to announce the proposed rules on Friday. The goal is to cut down on pollution by reducing the amount of sulfur in gasoline by two-thirds. Lives are apparently at stake as well: The White House says the price of gas will go up less than a penny, but the oil industry says it could rise as much as 9 cents a gallon. The new regulations won't take ...

President Obama’s budget will be over two months late

Yesterday, principal deputy White House press secretary Josh Earnest announced President Obama will finally put forth his 2014 fiscal year budget to the American people – a mere two months and a few days past the legal deadline of February 4, 2013. Earnest said the sequester and other factors played into the tardiness: The budget, more than two months late after the legal deadline of Feb. 4, was delayed by the year-end debate over taxes and spending, compounded by across-the-board spending cuts that took effect on March 1. The spending blueprint outlining Obama’s priorities for the year beginning Oct. 1 follows House and Senate adoption of ...
