OBAMACARE AND EUGENICS

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss Jonathan Gruber’s use of the term “positive selection” in one of his papers about abortion. This term, as he uses it, is right out of Eugenics 101: The scariest words uttered during Jonathan Gruber’s recent appearance before the House Oversight Committee were “positive selection.” They were read aloud by [...]

WHO MOVED MY MEDIA?

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the hypocrisy of The New Republic’s high-profile writers regarding change: For years, the Washington press corps has been telling us that our medical delivery system was antiquated and unable to meet the needs of its 21st century customers … Over the past several days, we have had the opportunity [...]

IS PRESIDENT OBAMA A GOP MOLE?

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the ironic fact that President Obama has done more damage to the Democrats than the Republicans could possibly have managed without him: When President Obama took office in 2009, his party was in better shape than it had been since the era following Watergate. The Democrats controlled both houses [...]

TRAIN WRECKS, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE

In today’s American Spectator I discuss Jonathan Gruber’s remarks about the “stupidity of the American voter” and what they tell us concerning the deceptions that were used to foist Obamacare on an unwilling electorate: The “father of Obamacare,” as he was known in his salad days, inadvertently acquitted nearly half of us with his reference [...]

VIDEO: JONATHAN GRUBER STRIKES AGAIN

If you had any doubt that the Democrats and Obama administration deliberately deceived the public on Obamacare, this should clear them up. This jerk was arguably the most important architect of the law, and this video shows him openly advocating dishonesty: Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity [...]

KLEIN DOESN’T GET KING V. BURWELL

In the following video, Ezra Klein attempts to explain the significance of the Supreme Court’s decision to “grant cert” in King v. Burwell. As usual, he fails to grasp the basic question at issue: Klein believes that the Court should rule against the plaintiffs because we’re only talking about “9 little words.” Even on this [...]

IF WORDS MEAN ANYTHING, OBAMACARE IS IN REAL TROUBLE

In my latest American Spectator column I discuss the Supreme Court’s decision to “grant cert” in King v. Burwell: The Supreme Court announced on Friday that it will hear a lawsuit challenging an arbitrary IRS decision to issue tax credits and penalties through federally-created Obamacare exchanges. Two federal courts have already declared the regulation unconstitutional, [...]

THESE SENATORS DESERVE TO BE FIRED

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the need to give six Democrat Senators the bum’s rush tomorrow. They ignored the will of the voters on Obamacare, so the voters should ignore their desire to be reelected: What would happen if you ignored multiple requests from your employer to stop wasting time on your pet project [...]

THE INCOMPETENCE VIRUS

In today’s American Spectator I point out that Obama administration bungling on Ebola is part of a five-year pattern that points to a single, unavoidable diagnosis—incompetence. The folks at Media Matters for America are angry at the press. In a sublimely ironic post, Eric Boehlert fumes, “As Republicans seek to gain a partisan advantage by [...]

WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH MILTON WOLF?

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the potentially disastrous effect of a defeated Tea Partier’s refusal to endorse the winner of the Kansas Senate primary and thus focus Sunflower State conservatives on their main task—defeating Democrat-in-disguise Greg Orman: It has occasionally been claimed that the Civil War began not at Fort Sumter in South Carolina [...]
