THE GRAND OLD POSEURS

In today’s American Spectator, I vent my spleen on John Boehner and Mitch McConnell for their empty posturing regarding IPAB: Last week, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell ostentatiously announced their intention to fight implementation of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). They sent a letter to the President [...]

VIDEO: HITLER FINDS OUT THE GOP HAS RETAKEN THE HOUSE

This may be the best of the “Hitler finds outâ€? series. And, considering his notorious aversion to news that doesn’t flatter his vanity, I wouldn’t be surprised if our President reacted to the GOP landslide in much the same fashion as Hitler does in this clip. My favorite line: We rammed through health care … [...]

VIDEO: BOEHNER VOWS THAT OCARE WILL “NEVER, EVER … EVER” BE IMPLEMENTED

President Obama obviously didn’t get the point of last Tuesday, but John Boehner certainly did. In this interview, he makes it clear that the new House majority will use all its powers to bring down this nanny-state boondoggle: We can dent this, kick it, slow it down to make sure it never happens. And trust me, [...]

THE GOP PICKED UP A RECORD 680 STATE LEGISLATURE SEATS ON TUESDAY

Talk about a tsunami!! Tuesday saw the largest gain of state seats in the modern era, drowning the previous record of 628 set in 1974 (right after the Watergate fiasco): The GOP gained majorities in at least 14 state house chambers. They now have unified control—-meaning both chambers—-of 26 state legislatures. The GOP now holds the [...]

FUNNY VIDEO “TRIBUTE” TO NANCY PELOSI: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

Nancy Pelosi’s response to her involuntary termination as Speaker of the House suggests that she hasn’t quite absorbed its significance for her own life: We have taken the country in a new direction and we are not going back to the failed policies of the past. Er … Nancy … You don’t get to drive anymore. [...]

HOUSE: PRO-OCARE DEMS HIT FAR WORSE THAN THEIR ANTI-OCARE BRETHREN

Last March, when ObamaCare passed in the House, I thought it was an irrational and suicidal vote for many incumbent Dems. I was genuinely shocked that so many were dumb enough to do it. Philip Klein has done a quick and dirty analysis and, while hardly the last word we’ll hear on this subject, it suggests that a “yes” [...]

GALLUP: DEM HOUSE MAJORITY IS TOAST

No matter how many tantrums the President throws; no matter how much pettifoggery congressional Dems perpetrate; no matter how many whoppers the media tell—-the Pelosi majority is gone: [R]egardless of turnout, the Republicans will win more than the 40 seats needed to give them the majority in the U.S. House. The generic ballot shows a GOP lead [...]

VIDEO: AN MD EXPLAINS WHY NEARLY HALF OF U.S. PHYSICIANS ARE ABOUT TO QUIT MEDICINE

This speech, made Dr. David Janda on behalf of Dr. Rob Steele (who is running against Democrat John Dingell in Michigan) explains the realities of ObamaCare and why so many doctors have said they will quit practicing medicine if “reform” is actually implemented:

VIDEO: BRUTAL ANTI-REID AD FROM UNION AND OTHER TRADITIONAL DEM VOTERS

If you want to know how bad it is for Harry Reid in Nevada, watch this new ad from a group of voters called “Concerned Nevadans That Care About Our Country.� This is not a Republican or Tea Party outfit. These folks are straight from the Democrat base:  Members of this group represent those from traditional Democratic coalitions [...]

VIDEO: POLITICAL ATTACK ADS THEN & NOW

A perennial lament of the “news” media, when Republicans seem to be winning, is that the political system is broken and that it has been ruined by sinister interest groups running attack ads for the evil GOP.  Well, like so many memes repeated by the MSM, this one is BS. In reality, political ads by interest groups have been a staple of democracy since classical times. [...]
