Posted by: Phineas on March 10, 2014 at 3:58 pm » 8 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Via Moe Lane, that’s sure what it sounds like in the video below. Rick Perry of Texas was speaking as part of a panel at the Republican Governors Association late last February; the group had had a meeting (1) with President Obama, and what he told them left Governor Perry disturbed. Here’s […]

 

On Gov. Jan Brewer’s veto of #SB1062 – the religious rights bill

Posted by: ST on February 27, 2014 at 10:41 am » 2 Comments

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock the last week or so you’ve heard about Arizona’s SB 1062 bill – dubbed by the mainstream media and those who oppose it as the “anti-gay” bill when the more correct term for it is that it actually was a religious rights/freedoms bill, a point even some national […]

 

Democrat #MIsen candidate attacks cancer victim, TV stations, over #Obamacare ad

Posted by: ST on February 23, 2014 at 10:42 am » 1 Comment

So Obamacare and the lies its proponents have repeatedly told about it has become so toxic for Democrats in an election year that a Michigan US Senate candidate - who is currently a representative in the US House – is not only trying to silence a cancer victim, but also is threatening a TV station’s licenses for […]

Via Reuters: Volkswagen’s top labor representative threatened on Wednesday to try to block further investments by the German carmaker in the southern United States if its workers there are not unionized.

Schumer calls for Obama to use IRS as weapon against Tea Party. UPDATE: Et tu, Booker?

**Posted by Phineas Wait, didn’t we just have a national stink over the IRS harassing conservative and libertarian groups for their political beliefs? Yet now, not at all hiding his lack of understanding of or even his disdain for the principles that underlie our political system, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), in a speech at the […]

 

Sure it’s a coincidence: two critics of #Obamacare audited by IRS

Posted by: Phineas on December 1, 2013 at 12:01 pm » 9 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Hey, remember when President Obama told his followers to punch back against their enemies “twice as hard?” Or when he joked about setting the IRS on his critics? Maybe it’s not such a joke. Via Mark Steyn: A couple of weeks back, cancer patient Bill Elliot, in a defiant appearance on Fox […]

 

#Shutdown follies: Park Service uses “Gestapo tactics” to harass, detain visitors to Yellowstone

Posted by: Phineas on October 8, 2013 at 8:00 pm » 8 Comments

**Posted by Phineas That’s not me being hyperbolic; that’s the very description used by a tour guide who was taking a group of senior citizens, including visitors from overseas, to see one of our great natural resources. When they got there, they were instead treated to something out of a bad episode of Hogan’s Heroes: […]

 

#Shutdown follies: Let’s evict the President’s mother-in-law

Posted by: Phineas on October 7, 2013 at 12:54 pm » 2 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Since the administration has deemed it important to evict the elderly from their privately owned homes on federal land, perhaps we should kick nonessential personnel out of the federally-owned White House, too. Not Obama, of course; for all I dislike him, he is, sadly, essential. His wife’s mother, however, is another matter: […]

 

#Shutdown follies: the petty, petulant tyrannies of Barack Obama

Posted by: Phineas on October 6, 2013 at 3:55 pm » 8 Comments

**Posted by Phineas While I’m not a fan of the shutdown strategy the Republicans employed in battling Obamacare, it has accomplished one thing, so far: showing what a small man President Obama is. Oppose Obamacare? Legitimately use the powers of the House, which most closely represents the people of the nation, to try to make […]

 

Unreal: Park Service threatens to arrest WWII vets who try to visit their memorial

Posted by: Phineas on October 1, 2013 at 11:44 pm » 15 Comments

**Posted by Phineas So, you’ve heard the story today about the group of World War II veterans who had to break through barriers deliberately placed there by the Obama administration as part of its game-playing over the Democrat-forced government shutdown. It’s bad enough that they were deliberately inconveniencing 80-90 year old men who honorably served […]
