Team Obama Now Counting 'Lives Touched' by Stimulus
It isn’t simply the absurdity of a recent Government Accountability Report (GAO), finding that each job ‘created’ by the stimulus bill costs an average of $194,213.

Leaked WH Memo Exposes Obamacare's Lies
"Key White House allies are dramatically shifting their attempts to defend health care legislation, abandoning claims that it will reduce costs and deficit, and instead stressing a promise to 'improve it.'"

But we’ll check back with him in a month or so. This is the guy, you may recall, who described ObamaCare as "Obama’s Iraq" way back in February, before the bill even passed. How’s that prediction looking these days?

Barney Frank: We’re losing because Obama hasn’t blamed Republicans enough
Frank said Obama made a critical mistake when he took office in January 2009 by being too nice to Republicans and failing to tell the public just how bad things were following the presidency of George W.

NC forcing college students to buy abortion coverage?
Call it a dry run for ObamaCare. According to the advocacy group Students for Life, the state of North Carolina has created a back-door requirement that will force every uninsured student to pay for abortions. A new rule established by the Board of Governors requires every student attending its state-run universities and colleges to carry health insurance; if a student doesn’t have insurance, they will have to purchase it through the school. That plan funds abortions, which puts every uninsured student in the position of paying for them out of his or her own pocket:

"If we are to get our deficit under control, we need to rein in the runaway growth of our federal government," Hatch said.

A Democratic Panic Attack?
With the disappointingly soft jobs report for July, and a faltering recovery overall, is Team Obama getting ready for some sort of new, liberal-left, Keynesian, big-bang stimulus package? Will they be desperate to "do something"?


Time to admit Obamanomics has failed
It's no coincidence that Christina Romer, chairwoman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, announced her retirement the day before Friday's brutal unemployment report. With 131,000 more jobs lost in July, and downward revisions of 97,000 for the previous two months, it's easy to see why she would start looking for the exits.


The Obama presidency increasingly resembles a modern-day Ancien Régime: extravagant and out of touch with the American people
What the great French historian Alexis de Tocqueville would make of today’s Obama administration were he alive today is anyone’s guess. But I would wager that the author of L’Ancien Régime and Democracy in America would be less than impressed with the extravagance and arrogance on display among the White House elites that rule America as though they had been handed some divine right to govern with impunity.

Muslims know the Ground Zero mosque is meant to be a deliberate provocation
New York currently boasts at least 30 mosques so it's not as if there is pressing need to find space for worshippers. The fact we Muslims know the idea behind the Ground Zero mosque is meant to be a deliberate provocation to thumb our noses at the infidel.

Fact-checking the Fact-checkers on the $3.8 Trillion Obama Tax Hike
Yesterday, PolitiFact.com fact-checked my statement about the coming $3.8 trillion Obama tax hike, the largest tax increase in history.

Unfortunately for PolitiFact, no such proposal exists.

Ted Nugent: We Allowed Anti-Americans to Take Over America
Barack Hussein Obama did not sneak into power. An army of clueless, disconnected, ignorant Americans invited him to bring his Marxist, glaringly anti-American jihad into our lives.

Federal judge refuses to dismiss Virginia challenge to ObamaCare
Expect the Left to go after Judge Hudson. George W. Bush appointed him to the federal bench in 2002, following a career in the state bench and also in the US Marshal Service as director during Bush 41’s administration.

Despite the order -- and concerns about the environmental effects of the dispersants -- the Coast Guard granted requests to use them 74 times over 54 days, and to use them on the surface and deep underwater at the well site.
