I know we conservatives call Barack Obama a rank political opportunist a awful lot. It’s tough to come up with useful synonyms to describe how he uses people to grease the gears of his political machine, so we on that right tend to sound like knee-jerk partisans, much like when a progressive uses the word […]

Did I not say just last night that Eric Holder’s goose is well and truly cooked? I most certainly did and the proof is in the pudding, the petulant, fist-shaking pudding. What’s more, CBS News investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson — who’s been covering the scandal from the beginning — says in an interview on the […]

There are a couple posts over at Ending Spending of which I’m particularly proud. I’d like it if you clicked over there and left a nice comment or two, if you’ve the mind to do so. It’s easy to make light of “waste, fraud, and abuse” but when you look at how much money our […]

I’m pretty sure that if someone invented a Gall-O-Meter and pointed it toward Washington, the resulting overload explosion would leave a Chicxulub-sized crater. The Department of Labor, headed by anti-capitalist Hilda Solis, has launched its own investigation into SolyndraScam. It’s not looking toward the White House or the “green jobs” loan program or the board […]

I had planned a comprehensive post on the growing SolyndraScam story but I have to admit failure. Things are moving so quickly and in so many different directions that it’s hard for me to fix one particular narrative in the time I have during the day to write blog posts. Instead, let me put together […]

Does anyone remember when Nancy Pelosi was so worried about violent rhetoricĀ that she warned the Tea Parties that to be prepared for the wave of violence their words would inevitably cause? I think we all have to take responsibility for our actions and our words. We are a free country, and this balance between freedom […]

I have not written about every development of the still-growing Operation Fast and Furious scandal, but I do want to bring one story to your attention.

I’m pretty sure this press release from Deputy Attorney General James Cole is evidence that he either needs to be tested for drugs ASAP or that his conscience was surgically removed in the recent past. Deputy Attorney General James Cole issued the following statement today regarding information requests for multiple sales of semi-automatic rifles with […]

There’s an old saying that says, roughly, “It’s not the crime that kills you; it’s the cover-up”. Right now the Obama administration is on the verge of being killed by the almost daily revelations of how it came to be that over 2,000 guns passed from the United States, under the watchful eyes of the […]
