VIDEO: CADDELL SAYS MEDIA HAVE BECOME THE ‘ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE’

He’s angry, and should be. I’ll let Caddell speak for himself: I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.

OBAMA’S DUMBEST CAMPAIGN GIMMICK YET

Everyone has heard of the idiot “war on women” meme that Obama and his tapped out advisors are trying to sell the voters. Well, as part of that effort, they have created a series of e-cards. They’re all ridiculous, but none of the others come anywhere the level of stupidity reached by this one: Can [...]

INSURANCE COSTS HAVE JUMPED $3,000 SINCE OBAMA RAN ON A PROMISE TO LOWER THEM

During the 2008 election, poll after poll showed that Americans wanted two main things from health care reform: lower costs and easier access to care. And, during that election, candidate Barack Obama repeatedly promised that his “reform” plan would cut costs to the tune of $2,500 per family. During his first run for president, Barack [...]

GALLUP: PUBLIC DISTRUST OF MEDIA WAY UP

According to Gallup, the public’s distrust in the “news” media is at an all time high. Geez … Why would that be? Perhaps it’s related to their habit of lying to us all the time. Ya think? So now, nearly two-thirds of the public just doesn’t believe what they say: Americans’ distrust in the media [...]

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S AARP SPEECH BROKE MY BS DETECTOR

In today’s American Spectator I lament my decision to leave my patented BS Detector on during the President’s speech to last week’s AARP convention. His whoppers about ObamaCare and the Romney-Ryan Medicare plan came so fast and furious that they fried the machine’s circuits: I probably should have turned it off after observing its reaction [...]

OBAMACARE MANDATE TAX TO HIT NEARLY 6 MILLION UNISURED

Remember when our President made this pledge? Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes. Well, this turns out to be yet another broken promise: Nearly 6 [...]

VIDEO: ROMNEY TELLS OBAMA HE CAN CHANGE DC FROM OUTSIDE STARTING IN NOVEMBER.

Today, the President actual said this: The most important lesson I’ve learned is you can’t change Washington from the inside. Mitt Romney’s response was as follows: He said he can’t change Washington from inside. He can only change it from outside. Well, we’re gonna give him that chance in November. He’s going outside.

OBAMACARE TAX RULES WILL REQUIRE 80 MILLION MAN-HOURS TO IMPLEMENT

Not only is ObamaCare a job killer, it’s a productivity killer: The House Committee on Ways and Means has compiled an estimate of the total amount of hours it will take to comply with the tax rules. The bottom line: 79,229,503 hours, most of which will fall on small businesses. The committee provides a a [...]

OBAMA’S DISDAIN FOR DEMOCRACY AND FREE EXPRESSION

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss Obama’s attempt to censor Google and point out that such behavior is the rule rather than exception for this particular President: Time after time, given the choice between accepting the will of the people and clinging to his own agenda, he has chosen the latter. Again and again, given [...]

HHS COMMISSAR SEBELIUS BROKE THE LAW. WHY HASN’T SHE BEEN FIRED?

Last week, federal investigators from the Office of Special Counsel announced that Obama’s HHS Secretary broke the law. Specifically, she violated the Hatch Act which prohibits federal employees from campaigning while acting in an official capacity. Special Counsel Carolyn Lerner wrote to Obama that the OSC found Sebelius ‘violated the Hatch Act by making extemporaneous [...]
