So RedDiaperBaby and Jeemo, what say you now about Obamacare costs? Start groveling with abject apologies

by Skip November 19, 2017

So commenters RedDiaperBaby and Jeemo Glewton didn’t believe my reporting on a couple of acquaintances of mine lamenting on the extremely high cost of their Obamacare plans as this year’s version is soaring in price (“So he works simply to pay his Obamacare bill? A “Have” paying for the “Have-Nots”).  Jeemo outright called me a […]

So he works simply to pay his Obamacare bill? A “Have” paying for the “Have-Nots”.

by Skip November 8, 2017

Stated another way, that’s $34,200 per year. UPDATE: I was at a meeting in Manchester and ran into a old friend of the ‘Grok and without prompting, he brought up that his Obamacare plan, bought on the exchange, is mirroring my aquaintance’s below: it has just from about $1,000/month for his family to over $2,000 / […]

Data Point – 3rd quarter GDP 3.0% rise

by Skip October 27, 2017

This is on the heels of last quarter’s 3.1% rise – two quarters in a row of above 3.0% since 2014 under Obama (and that year turned in a measly 2.4% overall).  No, two points in a row does not yet make a trend but predictions were showing around 2.4-2.5% due to Harvey, Irma, and […]

Obama Admin Threatened FBI Informant’… If He Talked During Election

by Steve MacDonald October 27, 2017

You know you’re in for some fun (unless you’re a Democrat) when the opening paragraph starts like this.

Russia-Clinton-Obama Era Bribery and Collusion Story Still Not News

by Steve MacDonald October 19, 2017

I confess that I often post content over at New Media Militia so I can find it later when I have time to write about it. But if you didn’t see this story over there you may not have seen it at all (until now) because it doesn’t exist in most media. The Hill.com broke the story Tuesday. […]

Hmm, interesting speculation: “Barack Obama Funded North Korea’s Nuclear Weapons Program”

by Skip October 18, 2017

That’s the headline over at DCWhispers and they make a point worth considering, given how chummy the two regimes have been in the past. The operative question is this How did North Korea’s Nuclear Tech Get So Good So Fast? (Reformatted, emphasis mine): $33.6 BILLION. That is the amount then-President Barack Obama had shipped under cover […]

Trump vs Iran

by Steve MacDonald October 15, 2017

In a piece over at The Hill.com, two writers outline why Mr. Trump’s Iran Speech matters. The Obama deal was a sham with a payoff. President Obama promised that on his watch Iran would not get nuclear weapons. Obama achieved this by cutting a deal that effectively paid off Iran upfront to delay a nuclear […]

Quick thought – Nuclear non-proliferation?

by Skip September 25, 2017

SHOT: Non-proliferation is dead in Northeast Asia, and Chinese support for North Korea helped to kill it. CHASER: Wait until someone says the same thing a world away: Non-proliferation is dead in the Middle East and Obama’s support for Iran helped to kill it.

Obama: What, you don’t BELIEVE ME?

by Skip September 23, 2017

This here’s right funny – they’ve nailed his character to the bone.  Was it that “If you like you doctor, you can keep your doctor” and that Obamacare would let everyone keep $2500 more of their own money? How can they be SO cynical of the former LightBringer? Emphasis mine, reformatted. After Obama nixes agreement, […]

Not always, Mr. Obama

I’m on all KINDS of Democrat email lists, under a bunch of email addresses, just so I can keep up with what they are kvetching and hollaring about.  Most of it I consider pure and absolute dribble but it must be effective with their base because almost all of the emails seem to be totally […]

The Dream Act Is Not Law

by Rick Olson September 5, 2017

“The clearest way to show what the rule of law means to us in everyday life is to recall what has happened when there is no rule of law.”   -Dwight D.

DACA finally gets its due?

by Skip August 19, 2017

DACA – the Obama self-declared law (“Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals”) was an Executive Order that basically violated the existing immigration Law duly passed by Congress.  It made a “safe space” from keeping kids, these DREAMERs, that were brought here illegally by their illegal immigrant parents free from being deported.  As I have said before, […]

Remember When the Press Pissed and Moaned About Access to President Obama?

by Steve MacDonald July 12, 2017

Because we forget, “Journalists are routinely being denied the right to photograph or videotape the president while he is performing his official duties,” according to a letter the organizations sent to the White House. “As surely as if they were placing a hand over a journalist’s camera lens, officials in this administration are blocking the […]

President Trump is Obama’s Legacy

by Steve MacDonald June 25, 2017

There’s a great article from the New York Post linked here, that paints the evolving Democrat dilemma. For Republicans, luck can’t get much better. While Clinton and Pelosi were hardly innocent bystanders in the historic rout of Democrats at every level of government, the main culprit was Obama. It was Obamaism, more than Clintonism or […]

Obama Uses Private Jet, 14 Car Convoy to Get to European Climate Change Speech

by Steve MacDonald May 13, 2017

Taking up two floors of a swanky hotel after flying in on a private jet, and tooling about with a fourteen car entourage, then giving a speech on climate change.  Nice. It seems like Obama has taken a page out of Leonardo DiCaprio’s book of “do as I say, not as I do” and took a […]

Blogline of the Day – The Senate was right to do so

by Skip April 16, 2017

The Senate’s role is to advise and consent. Their advice to Obama on the Garland nomination was “take a flying leap, Mr. President,” which was completely within their prerogative. But Progressives can NEVER accept a “no” when it denies them either a pathway to Power or that Power itself.  Barack wanted Garland on SCOTUS, the […]

“NOW You’re Worried About Executive Power? “

by Skip April 11, 2017

“Recently, many left-leaning people have become (randomly) concerned about reigning in executive power, a mass event not seen since the beginning years of the Bush presidency. This concern manifests itself in suddenly questioning the ability of the president to unilaterally order military action, including drone strikes, air strikes, special forces, etc. It also comes across […]

Get a Better Grip on the Convoluted War In Syria

by Steve MacDonald April 8, 2017

This video is from Ezra Klein and Vox, but it is worth watching. They do an excellent job of explaining the timeline and who is involved with whom for what apparent reasons. It also adds some interesting fuel to the Obama/Deep state Russian influence narrative: the US and Russia have been fighting on opposite sides of […]
