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 […]

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.

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.

Obama Era School Meddling Results in Increased Violence, Drug Use, and Gang Activity.

by Steve MacDonald April 1, 2017

This is a familiar refrain. Social engineers suggest a policy prescription and share their blueprint with the public. But the actual results are something entirely different. In today’s example, Obama’s Department of Education decided that too many public school suspensions were discriminatory. They targeted black students.

Obama Admin. Spying on Trump Campaign Before Election

by Steve MacDonald March 6, 2017

The Obama Administration spied on foreign allies, Diplomats, regular Americans, their internet histories, even otherwise friendly press associations. And Dear Leader was okay with all of that. It got so bad that the global community united behind the meme ‘Yes We Scan.’ So the idea that Democrats and the Obama Administration are spying on Republicans and Trump, in particular, is […]

Overall Obama approval rating? Surrrrprise!

by Skip January 26, 2017

As President Obama left the White House, the mainstream press was falling over itself proclaiming how popular he was. “Obama leaving office on a very high note,” was a typical headline. Yet despite the media’s fixation with polls, the press completely buried one of the more newsworthy poll findings — a Gallup report that came out last […]
