For the White House, Lying About the Berwick Nomination is the Easy Way Out

For the White House, Lying About the Berwick Nomination is the Easy Way Out

Why is the White House lying about its recess appointment of Dr. Donald Berwick to run the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)? Here is what the President said about his appointment last Wednesday. It’s unfortunate that at a time when our nation is facing enormous challenges, many in Congress have decided to delay […]

Men, are you sick and tired of wussified chick flicks and metrosexual leading men? Does the flood of glittery vampires from Hollywood cause the bile to rise in your throat? Has the Oprahfication of our culture left you craving real entertainment red meat, with explosions and scenery-chewing villans and hot women and heroes who toss […]

Help me out here, soon to be unemployed Congressman Inglis. What you’re really saying is that demagoguery isn’t leadership when people you don’t like do it, but your demagoguery? Well that’s just fine. Does that about sum it up? [Bob Inglis] cited a claim made famous by Palin that the Democratic health care bill would […]

Gosh, I can’t imagine why conservatives had some serious disagreements with Senator Robert Bennett. He has such a keen grasp on the first principles of conservatism! JUDY WOODRUFF: Bennett sees the Tea Party and other conservative citizens groups as demanding more than he is prepared to do. SEN. ROBERT BENNETT: I found that a good […]

I must admit, I’m baffled by how this administration is using the Justice Department to uphold our Constitution. We have gotten a pretty confusing message in the past few days from what behaviors Eric Holder and President Obama have sanctioned and what they want to prevent. For example, it is quite all right with this […]

They told me if I voted for John McCain, the government would ramp up its monitoring of the Internet and they were right*! The U.S. government is launching an expansive program dubbed “Perfect Citizen” to detect cyber assaults on private U.S. companies and government agencies running critical infrastructure such as the electricity grid and nuclear […]

This is not a paragraph to inspire confidence. The White House has said the decision to challenge Arizona’s immigration law was out of its hands, left completely up to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and the lawyers at the Justice Department. If the White House had any real confidence in its case, do you […]

Too Often, Consensus Means Rubbish

Too Often, Consensus Means Rubbish

Among the shibboleths of the left, there is none greater than “consensus”. Like Tolkien’s One Ring, it binds the left together with smooth promises of easy decisions gained by wielding the power of experts but in the end leaves them betrayed and bitter. We’ve seen this happen in the global warming debate where the “consensus” […]

Hollywood, I’m warning you. Don’t you do this. Don’t you dare do this. I realize I can’t stop you from releasing this theatrical assault on the childhoods of millions of good Americans, this Gulf Oil Spill of cultural ruination you are about to visit on the pelicans and little baby turtles that we call our […]

My friend Duane Lester was tapped by the Dr. Dan Benishek campaign to put together an ad. It’s Duane’s first, but I think he did a pretty good job of it. Beneshek is running for the House in MI-1, which is an open seat now that Bart Stupak, who torpedoed his own chance for re-election, […]
