Surprise! Obamacare subsidizes abortions

Posted by  ▪  September 16, 2014

As if you didn’t already suspect it.

For all the times we’ve been told Obamacare does not fund abortion, a new GAO report proves exactly the opposite. Salon wrote this fantastic piece decrying anti-choice activists who bought into the Obamacare-abortion myth, and last night the Washington Examiner released their findings related to the GAO report and recapped the…

Whittle: Environmentalism and “Tie Dyed Tyranny”

Posted by  ▪  September 16, 2014

“You like the planet, don’t you?”

We’ve all heard stories about ridiculous government regulations passed in the name of “environmentalism,” but in some states, “regulatory action” has passed out of the reasonable and into the ridiculous. In his latest episode of “Firewall,” commentator Bill Whittle lays out the case against restrictive (and possibly unconstitutional) environmental regulations that…

Code Pink crashed a Senate hearing

Posted by  ▪  September 16, 2014

They define “divorced from reality.”

Code Pink protesters interrupted today’s Senate Armed Services Committee hearing to disrupt testimony from top Administration officials about how U.S. military intervention will aid in the destruction of the Islamic State. From the Washington Free Beacon: “No more war!” the protester shouted. “The American public does not want war! We do not want…

UN Peacekeepers in Syria Escape to Israel

Posted by  ▪  September 16, 2014

Who will protect Israel if it doesn’t protect itself?

The United Nations announced yesterday that it was withdrawing all of its United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) peacekeepers out of Syria due to “[t]he situation in UNDOF on the Syrian side and the area of separation has deteriorated severely over the last several days.” Armed groups have made advances in the…

US working with Iran (but not Syria) in ISIS fight

Enter foreign policy bizarro world

Our friends over at National Review pulled this little gem. We’ve officially entered foreign policy bizarro world when the Department of State is absolutely refusing to work with Syria, but is open to working with Iran to fight (however they’re defining that) ISIS. Blitzer asked Department of State Spokesperson Marie Harf if…

Fiscal derailment result of CA bullet train ruling

Posted by  ▪  September 16, 2014
We have been chronicling the journey of California’s vaunted “high speed train” construction project, which has been anything but speedy. When we last checked, Sacramento judge Michael Kenney had wisely ruled that state officials cannot pursue a plan to tap billions of dollars in voter-approved bond funding for construction—a decision that could…

Pelosi: America “not at war” with ISIS

Posted by  ▪  September 16, 2014

Is she for real?

Do you know what keeps Nancy Pelosi up at night? It isn’t ISIS. Three days ago, she insisted that if Republicans take control of the Senate it would bring about the end of civilization. Now, she’s claiming that America isn’t at war with the Islamic State. The Washington Free Beacon reported: Nancy Pelosi: We…

From D: Here’s a couple who wear their Liberalism on their sleeves. I doubt you could explain to them the irony of crediting the Democrats with two programs that are on a bullet’s trajectory to insolvency. I’m still a daily reader at LI…keep up the great work!

Then they came for the squeaky fresh cheese curds

Posted by  ▪  September 15, 2014

Because people remained silent when they came for the Roquefort

If the FDA’s overreach into cheese doesn’t compel you to grab your pitchfork and take to the streets, nothing will. Last week, we wrote about the FDA’s French cheese tyranny. Looks like the situation is only becoming more dire. According to The Gazette, a cheese factory that specializes in cheese curds is…

Conservatives push back on Net Neutrality

Posted by  ▪  September 15, 2014

“The Internet does not need the federal government’s ‘help.’”

Conservative advocacy organizations are using their resources to put muscle behind the growing anti-internet regulation movement. Those on the other side of the issue, who advocate for “Net Neutrality,” want to use Title II of the Communications Act as a way of reclassifying broadband internet providers as “utilities.” If this reclassification…

Gloves off in final push for Scottish independence

Posted by  ▪  September 15, 2014

The rhetoric is devolving.

We’ve covered the recent push for Scottish independence here, here, and here. With the referendum vote coming up Thursday, the ‘No’ votes have abandoned polite dissuasion in favor of a more direct approach. The ‘Yes’ camp has also become a little less shy. First, John Oliver. If you’re not familiar with the former…

Gallup: America Doesn’t Trust Washington

Posted by  ▪  September 15, 2014

And it’s not just “likely voters” who feel that way.

Gallup’s new poll on Americans’ level of trust in our three branches of government has revealed exactly what you would expect: they don’t. We already know that likely voters, for the most part (but just barely,) have some idea of who controls the House and the Senate, but this new poll from…

It has come to this. Via Gateway Pundit: (added) Grimes needs all the distance from Obama she can get at this point in the campaign, Grimes might need campaign reset, observers say: With at least seven public polls showing her trailing Mitch McConnell by anywhere between 4 and 8 percentage points, Alison Lundergan Grimes…

Report: Team Hillary scrubbed Benghazi docs

Posted by  ▪  September 15, 2014

If true, the inevitability of Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton is seriously in doubt

We’ve seen so many Benghazi bombshells to date that have been deep-sixed by the media or flopped (60 Minutes), that I’m skeptical that this new report will damage Hillary. There will be Clintonesque attacks on the whistleblower and spin of the story as part of a vast right wing conspiracy. But if it’s…
