Americans Can No Longer Afford Détente With The Socialist Left

PHO-10Mar22-213187

For decades after World War II, both parties followed an uneasy strategy of détente with the Soviet Union, trying to appease communist demands while appearing “reasonable.”   The Soviets played them for the suckers they were, increasingly demanding more accommodations as their strength and aggression grew. When Ronald Reagan burst onto the political scene, he threw détente out […]

Boehner Declares War On Tea Party, Purges Fiscal Conservatives From House Committees

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

It appears John Boehner doesn’t want fiscal conservatives anywhere near positions of power where they can challenge his compromises with the enemy. 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 […]

Is This The Beginning Of A Republican Party Split?

who knew

We may be looking at the beginning of a party split. Tea Partiers are fed up and dumping the party in droves, going unaffiliated, Independent, Constitution party or Libertarian.  We can’t accomplish anything if we’re fractured all over the place.   At some point the only way to bring back cohesion may be to start an […]

Obamacare Tax

Obamacare Tax

In light of this morning’s Supreme Court’s decision, Obamacare, despite Obama’s multiple claims to the contrary, that Obamacare is a tax. Taxes are a theft of your time. And how that plays out, one only needs to look at history. Take a listen: I Spy Minute Thurs June 28 2012 Or read the transcript below. […]

So You Don’t Want To Vote For Romney…

Patriots, it’s pretty inevitable at this point that the GOP will nominate a RINO for president.  We’re stuck with the cards in our hand. I understand the temptation to sit out the election or split off and create our own party.  I get it.  I really do.  But the reality is, if we do that […]

Democrats Continue the Hijack of the GOP Legacy

Democrats Continue the Hijack of the GOP Legacy

I’ve lost count of how many times liberal Democrats have bashed the Republicans for being mean-spirited, racist, cold hearted, evil and just the worst sort of people to ever exist on the face of the earth. Every election or whenever faced with a major piece of legislation they wish to promote, Democrats pull out the […]

  • Senate committee discusses collective bargaining transparency August 17, 2017
    The Senate Commerce & Labor Committee held a work session yesterday on “public transparency in collective bargaining negotiations.” Despite the strong mandate for government transparency declared by the people in the Open Public Meetings Act, government employee contracts are usually negotiated in secret, meaning an important and costly taxpayer expense is hidden until the final bill comes due. There […]

  • Rep. Orwall to co-chair national Military and Veterans Task Force August 17, 2017
    Earlier this month, the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), a bipartisan organization that provides research, technical assistance and opportunities for policymakers to exchange ideas on the most pressing state issues, selected Speaker Pro-Tem Tina Orwall (D-Des Moines) as co-chair of the Military & Veterans Affairs Task Force. “This is truly an honor and a great privilege,” said Orwall, who […]
  • ‘Logan Lucky’ Review August 18, 2017
    We all knew that Steven Soderbergh's retirement from feature filmmaking in 2013 following the release of Side Effects was unlikely to last. Indeed, one could argue that it never really began, given his work on Cinemax's The Knick and other projects. But it's nice to have him officially back in business with Logan Lucky, a […]
  • Obamacare Enrollment Program Signed Up a Fraction of Those Who Canceled Coverage in 2017 August 18, 2017
    The Affordable Care Act Enrollment Assistance Program helped 14,500 individuals enroll in the Obamacare exchanges, which represented only 0.007 percent of the 1.9 million individuals who decided to drop their Obamacare plan in 2017. The post Obamacare Enrollment Program Signed Up a Fraction of Those Who Canceled Coverage in 2017 appeared first on Washington Free […]
  • The Party of Trump August 18, 2017
    On July 18, 2015, about a month into his long-shot campaign for president, Donald Trump famously attacked John McCain. "He's not a war hero," he said. "He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured." Campaigning in Iowa that summer, Trump mocked Jeb Bush for being "low-energy." In February […]
  • Black Crater Fire August 17, 2017
    The internet and phone service were both down in Camp Sherman yesterday afternoon and evening, which is when I would normally write the next day’s Antiplanner. So instead I took some night photos of the Milli Fire, which was burning on about 256 3,500 acres a few miles from here. Click image for a larger […]
  • Streamlining Infrastructure Approvals August 16, 2017
    President Trump issued an executive order yesterday aimed at streamlining the federal approval process for infrastructure projects. Contrary to the impression given by press reports, the order doesn’t repeal any environmental laws or rules. All it really does, the White House explains, is require federal agencies to work together to speed existing approval processes with […]
  • “True” BRT Clogs Up the Roads August 15, 2017
    The strange notion that bus-rapid transit isn’t “true” bus-rapid unless it uses lanes dedicated only to buses has infected Denver. The city is now considering converting two lanes of Colfax, the most important (and most congested) east-west street in the region, into dedicated bus lanes. This would make the remaining lanes even more congested, yet […]
