OBAMACARE SUPPORT ON THE RISE? IT’S BS!

A lot of people, including some conservatives who should know better, have fallen for the latest health reform meme—-that the electorate is finally coming around on Obamacare. As evidence for this BS, a lot of left-leaning bloggers and journalists are pointing to the following chart from Pollster.com: However, Jeffery Anderson at the Weekly Standard shows that our progressive friends are merely [...]

AUDIO: ANDREW BREITBART EXPLAINS WHY THE “JOURNOLIST” COVER-UP MATTERS

A lot of ”progressive” bloggers and journalists are whining because Andrew Breitbart has offered $100K for the archives of “Journolist.” Why are they upset? Because they are terrified that hundreds of high-profile journalists will be outed as corrupt purveyers of Lefty propaganda.  Wapo blogger Ezra Klein, who founded the list, has taken it down in a Nixonian attempt to cover up the truth, but one of Journolist’s 400 [...]

MSM + COMMONWEALTH FUND = PROPAGANDA

The Commonwealth Fund is a left-leaning think tank famous for producing bogus studies that support the Democrat party line on health care reform. Now, they’re providing grant money to train jounalists in the art of Obamacare propaganda. One reporter was so offended by this that he wrote in to Michelle Malkin: I’m a reporter at a major newspaper, [...]

VIDEO: COBURN NAILS KAGAN ON COMMERCE CLAUSE ARGUMENT FOR OBAMACARE

The alleged justification for Obamacare’s insurance mandate is that it is permitted under the Constitution’s commerce clause. But Congress has never used that clause to punish people for NOT DOING SOMETHING. If upheld by the Supremes, it means that the government can force you to do anything. It can, for example, fine you for not eating your [...]

BOWDLERIZING BYRD’S RECORD

Thomas Bowdler was an English physician whose desire to publish an edition of Shakespeare acceptable to nineteenth-century sensibilities led him to expurgate many of the Bard’s “controversial? passages. The result was that the good doctor’s name has since been transformed into a verb meaning to “sanitize? someone’s writing or past. That perfectly describes what the [...]

HOW WILL KAGAN RULE ON OBAMACARE?

Let’s face it, Elena Kagan will soon be a member of the Supreme Court. And it goes without saying that, being a progressive, she will be a justice with an elastic view of the Constitution. But is her view of the the Constitution so elastic that she would uphold Obamacare’s individual mandate? The answer is probably YES. [...]

VIDEO: BIDEN BUSTED BY SHOP MGR ON TAXES

I guess it was expected to be one those “regular Joe” photo ops, but the manager of Kopps Custard saw it as an opportunity to bug Biden about high tax rates. When Biden asked how much he owed for the custard, the manager replied that it was one the house, but he would be willing [...]

DOCTORS GO ON STRIKE IN GERMANY

If you ever wonder where Washington’s constant monkeying with Medicare physician payment rates is heading, this news item from Europe will provide a glimpse of things to come: Some 15,000 doctors across Germany are staging a walkout to press for higher pay and better working conditions, a union said on Monday. And patients who need care? They are expected [...]

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THE AHA?!

Apparently, the American Hospital Association has learned nothing from the failure of the AMA’s quisling strategy. The organization that should be defending hospitals against bureaucratic intrusion has endorsed Donald Berwick, who promises to be the most radical and intrusive CMS head ever: On Monday, 10 leading hospital groups representing the bulk of America’s hospitals, including the American Hospital Association, the Catholic Health Association of [...]

VIDEO: HARRY REID’S SON OMITS LAST NAME FROM FIRST GUBERNATORIAL CAMPAIGN AD

In April, I wrote about the chilly reception Harry Reid was getting from his constituents every time he goes home. For a sense of just how low Reid’s stock has sunk in Nevada, watch this campaign ad that his son just released. Rory wants to become the state’s governor, but he seems to have misplaced his last name: His campaign website also [...]
