Democrats Demand Unlimited Borrowing Power

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

The fiscal impact of a combination of tax cuts ending this year will be nothing short of Armageddon for the economy, leading many to call it “Taxmageddon.” Meanwhile, like Nero and his fiddle, Obama is in charge of stopping this.

Obama Blames Founding Fathers For His Failures View on YouTube ‎”What’s frustrating people is that I haven’t been able to FORCE congress to implement every aspect of what I said in 2008.” No, what’s frustrating people is that you’re a wanna-be dictator who thinks that our constitution’s checks and balances against naked power grabs are […]

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

The mask is off, and so are the gloves. Obama and his Leftist supporters see their window of opportunity to finally dispense with our constitutional republic and permanently install a ruling class that will “fundamentally transform” the country we love into their Socialist Utopia.  They can almost see the finish line. We can’t say were […]

Congressional Hypocrisy on Outsourcing Defense Contracts

Congress 1

Once again, American workers, mired in an ongoing ‘Great Recession’ and facing some of the highest unemployment in decades, are seeing work that should be filled in America by Americans being outsourced to a foreign country.

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 […]

  • Hirst could be the tipping point for state’s endangered rural Democrats June 22, 2017
    For all the enthusiasm I hear from my party about saving endangered species, I wish there was a little more sympathy for the most endangered creature of all – the Democrat who represents a rural district. There aren’t many of us left, and the way things are going this year, our line may die out […]
