“Dear beautiful America, please, stop moving Forward.” I now live in Northern California, in the heart of the Bay Area, thousands of miles away from my homeland. And yet the poison of Soviet propaganda seeps through college dorms just as it did in Soviet classrooms. Stop a random youth on the street and you’ll find […]

Fucking hypocrites all. Canning highlights the willingness with which many on either side change principles based on their preferred outcome. The whole practice of gaveling the Senate to order to prevent recess appointments was a Democratic innovation used expressly to screw over George W. Bush. Back then, Senate Republicans trotted out what came to be […]

Sound the Alarm

Thomas Sowell on the politics of enacting budget cuts: Back in my teaching days, many years ago, one of the things I liked to ask the class to consider was this: Imagine a government agency with only two tasks: (1) building statues of Benedict Arnold and (2) providing life-saving medications to children. If this agency’s […]

It’s not just for loony conspiracy theorists anymore. President Obama’s decision to withhold the visual evidence of Osama bin Laden’s death has created a fundamental disagreement between the White House and one of the largest journalism organizations in the world. “This information is important for the historical record,” said Michael Oreskes, senior managing editor at […]

The left would be hurling Molotov cocktails nationwide if it had been the Shrub who had ordered attempted an assassination of an American citizen without due process. There would be cries that he’s a war criminal, and that impeachment is necessary in order to protect America. That the president feels he has the authority to […]

So Yummy

The tears of our formally hopeful voters for Obama are so yummy. Slate: In reversing one of its last principled positions—that American courts are sufficiently nimble, fair, and transparent to try Mohammed and his confederates—the administration surrendered to the bullying, fear-mongering, and demagoguery of those seeking to create two separate kinds of American law. This […]

Statism and Authority

From the mind of a progressive statist at Mother Jones: Libya has been Obama’s first real opportunity to make a decision on a new overseas military operation, and within days of making his choice it’s already started to spiral. First he resisted intervention. Then he agreed to a no-fly zone. The no-fly zone turned into […]

What Obama Needs

Peggy Noonan of The Wall Street Journal on Obama’s lack of reality based thinking when making decisions for everyday Americans: Mr. President, the rebellion isn’t shame-based, it’s John Wayne-based. Yes. Yes it is.

Can We Stop Pretending?

Can we stop pretending that our government gives a shit about the Bill of Rights? President Obama on the TSA’s new screening procedures: But at this point, TSA in consultation with counterterrorism experts have indicated to me that the procedures that they have been putting in place are the only ones right now that they […]

Ain’t That the Truth

The American Spectator on Obama’s reaction to the Democrats various losses in every form of government last night: The only difference now is that when [Obama] ignores Republican ideas, he’ll no longer be able to forge ahead and ram his agenda through Congress anyway. Ain’t that the truth. The potential gridlock is as good news […]

Myth: Obama has genuine concern for our civil liberties and privacy and vows to protect our Constitutional rights against government intrusion in the name of National Security™. A reminder: httpv:// Reality: Bullshit! This week sees the introduction of an entirely different level of assfuckery as the TSA, under authority of Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland […]

Obstructionist Politics

For at least the last year, liberals of all shades have done their best to paint republitards as “obstructionists” who have done nothing but stall congress, keeping important bills from being passed, doing everything in their power to block Obama from being able to give us “free” unicorns and ponies. But it seems that festering […]

Did someone say something about “outside groups” contributing money to republican campaigns at a far higher rate than democratic campaigns? Ah, yes. Here it is. Oh wait. Sorry. It must have been something about how eeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil it is to accept political contributions from groups that “regularly take in money from foreign corporations”. Got it. No. […]

Myth: Obama understands the discrimination against homosexuals and will do everything in his power to restore the rights of homosexuals. Reality: BULLSHIT! Obama has done nothing but pay lip service to gay rights since his election, while actively working to thwart any measures that might advance them. He talks about “civil unions” for homosexuals rather […]

From Request to Lawsuit

Last week a federal judge declared the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy unconstitutional. The next day, Obama asked that she put a stay on the decision. The judge denied the request. But rather than allow the ban die a merciful death, Obama will be filing a lawsuit to force a moratorium on the ban. […]

Myth: Obama is steadfast in his mission to “restore” the civil liberties taken by Bush the Lesser’s presidency. Reality: BULLSHIT! Obama has not only co-opted various civil liberties-busting policies from Bush, but he has actually made some of them worse, as well as a host of new “security” initiatives which, had they been undertaken by […]

How’s all that Hope and Change™ workin’ out for ya? The New York Times: Saying it would appeal a ruling striking down the law that bans gay men and lesbians from serving openly in the United States military, the Obama administration on Thursday asked the federal judge who issued the ruling for an emergency stay […]

Fear not progressives: Obama is that condescending to everyone. In the view of the ruling class, you too are the little people, not one of the Best and Brightest™. You can only hinder their progress towards even greater power.

Rats Fleeing the Sinking Ship

WaPo: Members of his staff describe Obama as wary of outsiders and reluctant to widen his inner circle. As one of his advisers bluntly put it, the president “doesn’t like new people.” Like it or not, he will soon be surrounded by them as an expected staff shuffle will deprive Obama of two of his […]

Can we quit with the whole fucking “Bush deregulated and cut spending on education” bullshit?  Reason’s Hit and Run: Between 2001 and 2009 George W. Bush did not “cut back on investments in education,” he increased them by 58 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars. Regulations? “The Bush team has spent more taxpayer money on issuing and […]
