Art_chaffetz_congress

  “Obama said Sue me. So we are.” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) expressed frustration on Wednesday regarding what he described as President Obama’s willingness to sidestep Congress to write his own laws. Chaffetz joined Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) on a conference call to discuss the resolution being voted on Wednesday evening to authorize Congress to […]

Democrats Demand Unlimited Borrowing Power

Another unconstitutional power grab?  How original. Tony Lee reports at Breitbart: Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, President Barack Obama’s point man on the fiscal cliff negotiations, presented Republican leaders a proposal to avoid the fiscal cliff on Thursday, which gives Obama unprecedented powers to raise the debt ceiling whenever he wants. The White House proposal includes $1.6 trillion […]

Screen-Shot-2012-10-03-at-9.51.00-AM-620x390

Francesca Chambers reports at Red Alert Politics: The fissure between the GOP establishment and Tea Party members in Congress blew wide open Monday evening when conservative members of Congress were suddenly removed from […]

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. Now the Republicans are preparing to cave on one of the last reasons anyone might consider voting GOP: raising taxes. If they cave on this, the Republican party is as good as […]

Who Are The Real Obstructionists?

Who Are The Real Obstructionists?

Obstructionism for me, but not for thee … From Revealing Politics: Obama ralliers exiting an Obama event at Ohio State University are asked by Caleb Bonham about what they think of so-called “obstructionist” politics. Many of the Obama supporters blamed Republicans and denounced obstructionist tactics. The most ardent activists called for Republicans to cross the […]

Michelle Malkin: “This Administration Has Been Malicious & Reckless With the Truth” View on YouTube The lies and finger-pointing are reaching a fever pitch as the Obama administration’s cover-up of the Libyan terror attack unravels.

Oregon’s Racist Connection

The current head of that racist organization known as Oregon Tea Party, John Kuzmanich, and the current head of the racist organization known as Multnomah County Republican Party, Jeff Reynolds, teamed up some time ago to form a political advisory business that helped to propel Love into a come-from-behind victory in the Utah primary election.

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. Take a listen: I Spy Minute Wed July 25 2012 Or read the transcript below… […]

Obama Complains That He Can’t ‘Force Congress To Implement’ His Agenda, Blames Founding Fathers

090911_obama_points_ap_624-550x308

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. Worse yet, the work is in the filling of a defense contract. Hawker Beechcraft, an established aircraft manufacturer based […]

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 […]

  • Column: States rights across the aisle February 22, 2017
    It’s not unusual for political dynamics to shift as political powers shift at the federal level. But the dynamics are changing pretty quickly as we enter the second month of President Donald Trump’s administration. Notably, Democratic governors and mayors have been defending their values and speaking for their constituents with an argument often used by […]
  • Democrats call, again, for action on ‘levy cliff’ February 22, 2017
    Some school districts may have to send out pink slips if the state legislature doesn’t pass the Democrats’ “levy cliff” bill, argued Democratic leadership at their weekly press conference Tuesday. “I’m hearing from superintendents too,” said Rep. Kristine Lytton, Anacortes, at the press conference. “They are trying to dig into the complexity of the senate […]
  • GOP leaders defend education funding plan, criticize Democrats’ plan February 21, 2017
    After facing criticism for their budget plan, Republican leaders defended their education funding proposal Monday at a press conference, and made their own criticisms of the Democrat’s levy cliff bill. Washington GOP legislators’ plan is to implement something of a “levy swap” to fund education in Washington. Background Senate Republicans announced their plan Jan. 27 […]
  • Free for a Limited Time Four More Years February 22, 2017
    Washington DC’s H Street streetcar has failed in just about every way possible. The 2.2-mile line cost $200 million, which is enough to build ten to twenty miles of four-lane freeway; it opened years behind schedule; and–despite being free “for a limited time”–it carries a paltry 2,400 people per weekday, which in a sane world […]
  • Congestion Cost U.S. $295 Billion in 2016 February 21, 2017
    Speaking of congestion (as the Antiplanner was yesterday), a new congestion scorecard from Inrix estimates that congestion cost America $295 billion in 2016, which is more than 1.5 percent of 2016 GDP. Where the Texas Transportation Institute’s previous estimates of congestion costs counted only the cost to commuters, Inrix adds costs to consumers who must […]
  • Good News and Bad News February 20, 2017
    Good news: The United States had 56,000 structurally deficient bridges in 2016. That’s good news because the number in 2015 was nearly 59,000. In fact, the number has declined in every year since 1992 (the earliest year for which records are available), when it was 124,000. The American Road and Transportation Builders thinks 2016’s number […]
