Blue State Blues: Only One More Year to Blame George W. Bush That’s because EVERY Community Organizer needs a scapegoat.  Given that Obama was not sufficient to stand up on his own and take his own lumps, Presiden “It’s always somebody else’s fault” picked on Bush like a common street bully: He served the maximum […]

by Skip December 25, 2015

“[H]ere’s the thing: In December, we never left Washington, D.C., until the day after Christmas. Never. Mr. Bush and his wife, Laura, would always depart the White House a few days before the holiday and hunker down at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland,” Curl wrote in a 2013 column that was republished Thursday.

Notable Quote – Harold Demsetz

by Skip December 21, 2015

Woodrow Wilson fit this mold.  The Socialists of the Frankfurt School did as well. Beware the intellectual who seeks power over our decisions and over the persuasion to which we can respond, especially when he seeks this power to prevent us from doing what he thinks we should not desire to do. – Harold Demsetz (“The […]

Admitted: none of Obama’s gun control policies would accomplish anything. Then why?

by Skip December 21, 2015

I really do wonder what kind of woodshed is brought for the Presidential “Responsible for being the stand-in for Baghdad Bob” flacker (that would be Josh Earnest, the most badly named Prez Press Sec evah!) actually tells the truth about Obama’s all encompassing need to disarm civilians – and admits NONE of them would do anything?

With Obama Care collapsing in on itself and taking health care with it Mr. ‘I need a Legacy’ will do anything… Determined for once to lead from upfront, he took a 500-person greenhouse gas-spewing entourage to the City of Light, to call for preventing increasing droughts, floods, storms, island-swallowing rising acidic ocean levels and other […]

Josh Earnest is a MORON. Doesn’t know why Gun Sales have Skyrocketed

by Kimberly Morin December 11, 2015

Every time Obama opens his mouth about putting more gun control into place, gun sales go up. Obama has been THE best gun salesman the firearms industry could ever have dreamed of.

WSJ | How does a man who entered the White House vowing to restore science to its proper place tell us that gun control is the answer to terrorism? After all, California already has strict gun control, as does France, which just had its second terrorist massacre this year. Not to mention that the one […]

Yes, Obama fits under the “write in” category for Gun Restrictions

by Skip December 7, 2015

If anything were to prove Obama’s deep ideological bias and hatred towards the American right to self-defense via the Second Amendment, it was last night when he tried conflating Islamic Jihad terrorist (and the risible lessening of such there of) by a citizen’s decreased right to own and bear arms by the use of a purely […]

According to Obama the shootings in Colorado last week; that “just doesn’t happen in other countries.” He’s speaking in Paris.

Obama acts the bully; Cruz calls him out.

by Skip November 19, 2015

It is clear that Obama views Republicans, especially Constitutional conservatives and TEA Party folks, as an existential enemy.  Given the furor that Obama caused by his presser the other day and calling out his political opposition over Syrian refugees and hurting “widows and orphans”, one could see his use of Alinsky’s Rule #5:  “Ridicule is man’s most […]
