GOP Prepares To Surrender The Party’s Last Issue Advantage: Taxes

They’ve caved on more spending.  They’ve caved on bigger government.  They’ve caved on illegal immigration and welfare and crippling cuts to our military.

Taxmageddon

lime rock

Power Grab Alert: Obama Wants Authority to Consolidate Federal Agencies and Centralize Powers

U

Obama first suggested consolidating federal agencies during his January 2011 “State of the Union” speech, and it was in a VERY dangerous context: We shouldn’t just give our people a government that’s more affordable. We should give them a government that’s more competent and efficient. How about one that’s constitutional? …my administration will develop a proposal […]

The “Ring” of Unconstitutional Powers

obamaring

A few short years ago, the world was caught up in the breathtaking imagery and passion of Peter Jackson’s film adaptation of “The Lord of the Rings” by J.R.R. Tolkien.   Although he insisted it was not allegorical, Tolkien’s fantasy epic was heavily influenced by his Catholic faith, his disgust for some of the harmful side effects […]

Obama’s Coup to Overthrow the Constitution

1obama-burns-constitution

Obama Defies Constitution To Make ‘Recess Appointment’ While Senate Is In Session

ConstitutionShredder (2)

Obama is defying the constitution’s “separation of powers” by skirting the constitutionally required Senate confirmation hearings to make a “recess appointment” WHILE THE SENATE IS IN SESSION. This is an impeachable offense. If Obama is resorting to this level of dictatorial abuses of power in an election year, just imagine what naked force he’d unleash […]

Supposedly, a “siege of delivery trucks is threatening to choke cities […]
  • Reason #4 to Stop Subsidizing TransitCities Need Low Taxes More Than Transit April 26, 2017
    Transit advocates like to claim that transit is somehow crucial to urban vitality, even in cities where only a few people use it.
