VIDEO: PELOSI PREDICTS OBAMACARE WILL BE UPHELD 6-3

The closer we get to judgement day, the more hysterical ObamaCare’s supporters get. During the past week or so, we have seen Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy all but threaten the Chief Justice and we have read countless op-eds by left-leaning legal scholars claiming that only a hopelessly corrupt, right wing Court would strike ObamaCare down. Now, [...]

THE WINNER OF OUR DISCONTENT

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses the destructive effect of conservative kvetching about Romney’s probable victory in the race for the GOP presidential nomination: Conservatives are queasy about Mitt Romney, and with good reason. Questions remain about his commitment to, and even his comprehension of, conservatism … Nonetheless, in the absence of some truly [...]

ILLINOIS TO MAKE UP BUDGET SHORTFALL BY PROMOTING TOBACCO USE

This is the kind of stupidity that always results when you put Democrats in power. Can you think of a more counterproductive way to fund a health care program than by relying on citizens to ruin their health? Illinois’ Medicaid program faces a $2.7 billion shortage that its governor has promised to deal with. So [...]

VIDEO: DR. WOLF TAKES ON COUSIN BARACK

If you’re not familiar with Milton Wolf, the President’s conservative cousin, this video will be a great introduction. Dr. Wolf is a happy warrior who provides deadly serious commentary with a smile. After you watch the video visit his blog here and read his latest column here.

DOCTOR ORWELL WILL SEE YOU NOW

The title above (which I wish I had thought of) is from Paul Hsieh’s latest column for Pajamas Media, wherein he disusses the deceptive language used to describe ObamaCare. He begins with the official name of the law: “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.” New estimates from the Congressional Budget Office show that ObamaCare [...]

CATHOLIC ORGANIZATIONS REVOLT EN MASSE AGAINST HHS ANTI-CONSCIENCE MANDATE

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses the coordinated nationwide legal action taken against the Obama admininistration by dozens of Catholic organizations (in twelve seperate lawsuits): If the President and his apparatchiks at HHS thought the outrage voiced by various cardinals, bishops, and countless lay Catholics over the anti-conscience mandate was mere bluster, they got [...]

HSIEH: WHO SHOULD CONTROL YOUR HEALTH CARE SPENDING?

Paul Hsieh asks, in Forbes, who should control health care spending? The answer is obvious—the entity most capable of controlling costs. Who would that be? Well … er … you: What simple health care reform has reduced medical costs by up to 30%, while preserving quality of care? Hint: It’s not government price controls or [...]

VIDEO: OBAMA’S BROKEN PROMISES

The President convicted by his own words: As he himself put it, we’re looking at a “one term proposition.”

UNIVERSITY RESPONDS TO HHS MANDATE BY REFUSING TO OFFER HEALTH INSURANCE

Franciscan University has become the first Catholic institution to respond to the Obama adminsistration’s contraception mandate by simply refusing to offer health coverage: The Obama Administration has mandated that all health insurance plans must cover “women’s health services” including contraception, sterilization, and abortion-causing medications as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). [...]

OBAMA’S CONTEMPT FOR THE VOTERS

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the latest insults to the electotare’s collective intelligence to emerge from the President’s reelection campaign: Last week Obama’s reelection team released a … preposterous piece of propaganda that begins with the administration’s standard complaint about the economic crisis that Obama “inherited” and goes on to claim that he somehow [...]
