Jeb takes a swipe at Hillary by releasing 33 years of personal tax returns
By Robert Laurie --American Politics
Don’t look now, but Jeb Bush’s campaign is about to set a record in terms of releasing tax information. This afternoon, Bush will release 33 years’ worth of personal income tax returns via his website. That’s more than any other would-be nominee ever - by a wide margin. Only Bob Dole and John Kerry came close to this total, and the Bush release will outpace both of them by double digits.

Hillary withheld emails on Benghazi & Libyan oil - altered others to downplay sharia
By Robert Laurie --American Politics
According to a report published this weekend, not only did Hillary lie about the YouTube video but she also lied when she said she turned over all of her non-personal emails. ....And at least a few of the emails that she did manage to turn over were sanitized to downplay some politically uncomfortable realities.
As the Washington Examiner reports:
Who Do They Think They Are?
By Liberty Counsel --American Politics
Washington, DC - Chief Justice John Roberts was right when referring to “five lawyers” who think they can order the “transformation of a social institution that has formed the basis of human society for millennia….Just who do we think we are?” he retorted. He went on to write that the decision of these “five lawyers” (as he calls them three times in his dissent) “is an act of will, not a legal judgment… [because the so-called right] “has no basis in the Constitution or the Court’s precedents.”
Most disturbing impact of SCOTUS rulings: They’ve made the federal government the 51st state
By Herman Cain --American Politics
Let’s refresh our memories about exactly what the Tenth Amendment says:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
The First Step
By Sarge --American Politics
“The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long the nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was. The world around it will forget even faster.- Milan Kundera (The Hayride 6-26-2015)
Well; the Supreme Court has issued some specific and overwhelmingly Progressive judgments between 6-25 and 6-26-2015. Obamacare doesn’t have to follow the “letter of the law” and Same-Sex marriage is allowable and enforceable in all 50 states. This seems less a matter of the will of the people than a pair of statements saying the State and the Government has NO responsibility to listen to the people and/or follow the mandates of those people.
Obama’s Iran Nuke Fiasco: Better NEVER Than Late!
By John Lillpop --American Politics
In yet another wretched foreign policy failure, Barack Obama’s much-maligned effort to undercut world security by allowing the terror state of Iran to go nuclear is about to go belly-up and miss the June 30 deadline for completion.
Of course, Obama and the mainstream media conspirators will spin the latest failure as yet another great foreign policy victory for The One and his crippled Secretary of State, the non-effervescent, uninspiring and uninspired John Kerry.
What SCOTUScare means to you
By Herman Cain --American Healthcare
The recent Supreme Court ruling on health insurance subsidies means they upheld the “stupidity of the American people” (as Jonathan Gruber would say, and has), and for the third time the Court stretched the law instead of interpreting the law.
How the Court arrived at this 6-3 decision has baffled many observers, and the ruling opinion written by Justice Roberts stuns those of us who believe that certain words matter, as Rob said last week.
‘Gay Marriage’ Ruling: Evil with a Silver Lining
By Matt Barber --American Politics
Well, that was predictable. On Friday, with its majority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, five judicial imperialists perched high atop the U.S. Supreme Court bench called the Supreme Being a liar. They presumed to invent, out of thin air and through judicial fiat, a “constitutional right” to sin-based “gay marriage.” (Father God, as you exact Your perfect justice on America, please have mercy upon Your faithful.)
If Republicans won’t repeal ObamaCare, it hardly matters what the Court does
By Herman Cain --American Politics
In no way am I willing to excuse the legal illogic that led six of the nine Supreme Court justices to uphold ObamaCare’s clearly illegal subsidy scheme in the King v. Burwell ruling. I can’t say it any better than dissenting Justice Antonin Scalia, who rightly observes that words now mean nothing, and that we might as well refer to the law as SCOTUSCare if the Supremes are going to keep rescuing it from its own shortcomings.
If Chief Justice Roberts finds it that implausible that the Democrat Congress of 2009 would really design a law in a way that ensures its failure, I wonder if he’s read many of their other laws. It’s what they do.
President who opposed gay marriage three years ago turns White House into rainbow extravaganza
By Dan Calabrese --American Politics
It’s not Barack Obama’s style to win a victory with any sort of humility, you understand. That’s not in his makeup. And there’s really little point in mentioning that he was “opposed” to gay marriage as recently as 2012 when he announced his big evolution on the issue, because everyone knows he wasn’t really opposed at all. He pretended to be until he sensed correctly that the politics of the country were changing and it was OK to admit he was for it - which he had been all along.
Anyway, if you’re a Christian who is grieved by this ruling and you’d like to think the president would greet the ruling with some level of dignity that would reflect a level of respect for differing views on the issue . . . sorry:
Be the Best Saboteur You Can Be
By Daniel Greenfield --American Politics
1. There is no conservative party
There is a Republican Party. The purpose of the party and its politicians, much like that of its Democratic counterpart, is to obtain money and privileges for its major donors. That doesn’t mean that its members don’t have other ideals and agendas, but Republican politicians who rise high enough come from an urban and suburban establishment that is more liberal than its base.
The truth of Obama’s post-racial America
By David L. Hunter --American Politics
Supposedly aggrieved Afro-American activists (whose knee-jerk reaction is always to blame whitey for their ills) bray “black lives [should] matter.” These same folks completely ignore the fact that 50 percent of Afro-American children are aborted in the womb. Similarly, militant slogans like ‘no justice, no peace’ coupled with violent city burning-protests obscure the truth that most blacks in America are killed by members of their own race: per 2012 FBI crime statistics, of 2,648 black homicides, 2,412, or 90%, of the perpetrators were black. The progressive Left utilizes the Obama political strategy of “never letting a crisis go to waste” to further an anti-American agenda designed to further inflame racial dissension and keep Democratic ultra-constitutionalist rabble-rousers (through an abetting MSM and mouthpieces like Al Sharpton) in power.
It’s not the Flag, stupid!
By David Bolton --American Politics
Yes, let’s take down the Confederate flag. We should be taking down and removing and throwing away all things that have an attachment to hatred, racism, and not sending the politically correct message to the world. After all, an individual should not be allowed to decide for themselves what to hate or like; only The Collective through its incarnation as government or mob rule can decide that, right?
CCRKBA Says SCOTUS Ruling Should Open Door To National CCW Recognition
By CCRKBA --Gun Control - Second Amendment
BELLEVUE, WA – Following today’s ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that requires all states to recognize same-sex marriages, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said that the same principle should apply to nationwide state recognition of concealed carry licenses and permits from all other states.
