VIDEO: Rick Perry reveals that Obama threatened governors at recent meeting

Petulant president. Hardly a surprise: During a recent meeting with the nation's governors, President Obama made clear his top priority, which is to make sure that the governors don't go talking out of turn or criticizing his policies in any way. Texas Gov. Rick Perry saw no reason to keep this a secret, and as ... continue reading

BREAKING: ObamaCare in big trouble as federal court nixes subsidies

Mortal wound? In a ruling that poses a much bigger threat to ObamaCare than the Hobby Lobby ruling - and we're talking about a potentially existential threat here - a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington D.C. has ruled that the federal government cannot provide direct insurance subsidies to people who ... continue reading

VIDEO: Black conservatives harassed at NAACP convention

Rage. The back story here is that 2014 is the first year black conservatives - or in this case blacks representing Freedom Works - were allowed to set up a booth at the NAACP convention. So one cheer to the NAACP for finally making that long overdue move. And while the video only shows one woman's rage against ... continue reading

Gov. Rick Perry: Fine, if you won't do it, the Texas National Guard will secure the border

Enough already. If Barack Obama won't do his job - and clearly he won't - Rick Perry will. According to the Washington Post, Perry has ordered the Texas National Guard to be dispatched to secure the U.S.-Mexico border. There's going to be an announcement this afternoon at 3 p.m. Eastern: Perry will announce his ... continue reading

Schmaltziest video ever begs for President Liz Warren

You will not be able to stop laughing. As I watch these eager leftists clamoring for a Warren presidency, this strikes me: They are desperate for a president who will tell the rich that they didn't get that way on their own because everyone needs roads and bridges. They insist on a president who will clamp down ... continue reading

On the rise: People in their 30s living with their parents

The soft generation that embraces Obama, and can't figure out how to support itself. You might think it's ironic that young people vote in big numbers for Barack Obama, but rising numbers of them can't support themselves under his economic policies - so much so that the Washington Post reports growing numbers of ... continue reading

Netanyahu signals 'significant expansion' of Gaza incursion

Get ready. Israel doesn't play. Despite certain condemnation at the UN and the usual calls for "restraint," the Israelis understand what's happening when Hamas refuses a perfectly reasonable cease fire offer and fires 100 rockets into Israel as soon as a brief cooling off period expires. It means that a terrorist ... continue reading

Israel commences ground invasion of Gaza

Air and sea too. Welcome to World War III day around here. First the Russians are thought to have shot down a Malaysian passenger jet over Ukraine. Now Israel is on the march into Gaza. Good thing Obama assures us the world is tranquil. That makes me feel better. The Jerusalem Post reports: The purpose of the ... continue reading

It's time we had a discussion about this season of 24

Dammit, Chloe, this post contains spoilers! Click now, Chloe! It seems somehow appalling that we're more than 60 hours past the season finale of 24 and I'm only just now writing this. I fear Jack would be disappointed in me, but hopefully not to the point of crushing my hand or chopping off a finger in the ... continue reading

How Obama is driving U.S. corporations to flee America

No hint of changing America's highest corporate tax rate. This has been a major theme of our boss for some time - and it's not just a matter of reducing the corporate tax rate. It's a matter of ripping the entire tax code up from its roots and establishing a new, simpler one with low rates on a very few things, ... continue reading

VIDEO: Megyn Kelly rips ABC for questions not asked in Eric Holder interview

Dereliction of duty. Nice work not only from Megyn but also from Judge Napolitano, who is excellent when he's explaining the law and the constitutional structure of government - and how it's supposed to work as opposed to how it's done by hyper-political officeholders. My guess is that the interviewer isn't even ... continue reading

Introducing 'Operation Choke Point': Obama's strategy for attacking businesses he doesn't like

Change you can believe in. It's hardly a huge news flash that Democrats don't like business. Oh sure, they'll put up with you if you're union-friendly, or if you give money to Democrat candidates, or if you underwrite left-wing foundations. But that whole provide-a-product-or-service-and-make-a-profit thing? Not ... continue reading

VIDEO: Josh Earnest reduced to blather as Jon Karl destroys Obama's foreign policy record

Pathetic. ABC's Jon Karl really only gives us a partial list here of all the global chaos happening on Obama's watch. He doesn't get into the march of ISIS into Iraq, nor does he mention the swift movement of Iran toward nuclear status or the continuing unrest and oppression in Venezuela. But it's enough that you ... continue reading

Anti-Hillary book with almost no media coverage tops Hillary's book in sales

Ascendant. Now when I say almost no media coverage, understand that I mean that in contrast to the coverage enjoyed by Hillary herself, who was in the top spot on the New York Times bestseller list before Edward Klein knocked her off. Sure, there's been some coverage of Klein's book on hyperpolitical sites, but ... continue reading

White House: If Assad only destroys some of his chemical weapons, that's fine with us

Red lines. Not that it's a big surprise, but let it be known beyond a shadow of a doubt: Barack Obama will not do anything to prevent evil and/or insane men from threatening others. The fact that he may have said he would, even in a specific situation, is completely irrelevant. Some of us understood this before ... continue reading

Chase Bank surveys employees: Are you an ally of the LGBT community?

Thought police. If you work for Chase Bank, you'd better make sure you get your thinking right concerning homosexuality. Which is to say, if you're not aligned with the current orthodoxy that equates the biblical view of the matter with "hate" then your bosses are going to want to know about it, and don't expect ... continue reading
