OBAMACARE: WHO’S CRYING NOW?

In my latest column for the American Spectator, I discuss the growing number of Obamacare advocates who have learned the hard way that the not-so-Affordable Care Act is and always was a giant fraud. I must confess that I have derived no small amount of schadenfreude from news stories about Obamacare advocates who have been [...]

A PIMP FOR OBAMACARE FEELS THE PAIN

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the whining of Shadowfax, a long-time advocate of government-run healthcare who has just figured out that it is “arbitrary and disconnected from reality”: When I began writing about the menace of increased federal involvement in our medical delivery system, I was surprised to discover that some doctors actually supported [...]

VIDEO: THE LOVE OF THEORY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL

This examination of the siren song of “theory” and its attraction for pseudo-intellectuals is one of Bill Whittle’s best efforts. He gives a brief history of the destruction blind adherence to theory has caused, and then applies it to the economic drivel preached by Paul Krugman and the increasingly ridiculous pronouncements of the Church of [...]

VIDEO: KRAUTHAMMER ON HOW THE LEFT WILL BE AFFECTED IF COURT KILLS OBAMACARE

Charles Krauthammer opines on the long-term effects on the left if ObamaCare is struck down by the Supreme Court. Will it galvanize them as Roe V. Wade did conservatism?

THE LEFT HAS BECOME COMFORTABLY DUMB

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses progressive cluelessness about how often they can pick the taxpayer’s pocket in order to fund frivolous luxuries: Today I received an email from a cycling group to which I belong. It was marked ‘urgent’ and its subject line read: ‘Federal Bike Funding Under Attack Again.’ It implored me [...]

WOLF ON THE DEATH THROES OF LIBERALISM

Although it will seem counterintuituve, the obviously-astroturfed OWS demonstrations are actually a sign that liberalism (or progressivism as it has now been rebranded) is moribund. In his latest column for the Washington Times, Milton Wolf puts it as follows: Liberalism is dying before our eyes, not with a whimper or a bang, but with a grand [...]

COLLEGE AUDIENCE CALLS OUT FRANCES FOX-PIVEN FOR CALLING TEA PARTY “RACIST”

Lefty academic, Frances Fox-Piven, from City University of New York has been shooting her big mouth off again. This time she repeated the long-ago-debunked charge that the Tea Party is racist (Maybe she confused them with the brazen anti-Semites of the “Occupy Wall Street” crowd). Some people in the audience countered her gratuitous slur, whereupon she [...]

COMFORTABLY DUMB

This picture captures the imbecility that lies at the root of the “Occupy Wall Street” charade. Everyone “protesting” evil corporations is wearing or carrying something made by a corporation. Where do these morons think all their stuff comes from? Santa Claus? [ht Doug Powers]

VIDEO: MOVEON’S KIDDIE PROPAGANDA

Among political activists, MoveOn.org is easily the most contemptible group to pollute the political atmosphere. There is nothing they won’t do or say to advance their agenda. As this video demonstrates, that includes the use of brainwashed children to pimp their lefty propaganda. These kids have been trained to parrot all the usual progressive memes, not the least being Medicare for All! [ht Breitbart]

WOLF: OBAMA VERSUS THE LEFT

In his latest column for the Washington Times, Milton Wolf discusses a serious problem with which our progressive friends must grapple. Having watched ”the One” stumble and bumble through nearly three years of failure and broken promises, his supporters face the following dilemma: As the liberal presidency of Mr. Obama becomes increasingly indefensible, the liberal is faced with an unthinkable dilemma: acknowledge [...]
