Ending the Recession Like FDR Did

Barack Obama is trying to end a recession and spark a recovery by the highly dubious means of shoveling vast amounts of federal dollars into domestic spending.  He is consciously trying to mimic FDR and the New Deal.  There is only one problem with this:  FDR’s New Deal was an economic failure.  Roosevelt tried a variety of different projects, programs, and spending to get us out of the Great Depression.  Some of those, like the National Recovery Administration, were quite consciously modeled after the policies of Fascist Italy.  Yet four years after Roosevelt took office, the economy was in worse shape than when he was elected.

Obama Destroying the USA to rebuild it in his own image?

It’s amazing to me that so many talking heads who seem befuddled as to what Obama is actually attempting to accomplish with his bound-to-fail stimulus bill cannot seem to see the forest for the trees.  To put it another way, they cannot grasp what’s actually happening to We-the-People at the hands of the developing ‘Obama Emperium’.  Shall we take a look at the events leading up to today?  By the way, I mean the actual events—not the lies manufactured by the mainstream media and other of his sycophants to make the secular messiah Obama ‘look good’.  I say let’s do!

Every American Is Now a Criminal!

You think you are a law abiding citizen, don’t you?  Think again!  You have been, you are now, and you will continue to break the law for the rest of your life, because there are too many laws, with millions more laws to follow.  Many of these laws are totally unconstitutional but have never been challenged in the courts.  Sometimes you break the law without any knowledge of it, even though ignorance of the law is not an excuse, if you are caught.  But worse, millions are breaking the law because they are convinced the laws are illegal, or just plain stupid.  With more people intentionally breaking the law, eventually the rule of law breaks down, as does our Republic.

Calling all government whistleblowers and watchdogs! Be a hero

Americans want to know what you know about where our tax dollars are going once they are put into the hands of Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, Tim Geithner, Joe Biden, and all the staff overseers who report back to them.

Slick Willie to BHO: More Bull, Less Bear!

Satire

As one born and raised in Hope (Arkansas), Former President Bill Clinton is at a loss to understand why Barack Obama is not more uplifting when speaking to the American people about the economy.

The Tax Man’s Spy Eye in the Sky

Maybe you are a homeowner with substantial acreage in your possession. Maybe you have a nice fence with which you might makes “good” neighbors of those whom you may want to keep off your land. Maybe you then built a small barn or a shed but forgot to mention it to your county appraiser and regulatory offices by applying for a building permit.

The Fairness Doctrine Response

Obama has officially denied it, but it still seems like much of the Left wants to bring back the Fairness Doctrine…for conservative talk radio.  How confident can we be that this will not happen?  About as confident as we could be that Obama, having promised to accept public funding of his presidential campaign, would actually do that during his run for office.  About as comfortable as we can that Democrats would never, ever, try to practice the tactics of Saul Alinsky and destroy their enemies.  So, perhaps, we should continue to explain why the Fairness Doctrine and its incarnations are not fair.

Hillary’s really big boo-boo

A week ago,  I had the pleasure of attending a seminar with economist Alan Beaulieu of the Institute for Trend Research.  Beaulieu is one of the few economists who over a year ago predicted that the housing bubble would burst and bring about a deep recession, a prediction that has more than come true.  His talk included comment on Barak Obama’s economic stimulus package, which he predicted would cause a lot more problems than it would solve.  Beaulieu also lamented the fact that Hillary Clinton didn’t win her party’s nomination, because he said that Hillary is a known quantity and one could reasonably predict what her actions might be.

Obama: Reversing Course and Going Nowhere Fast

It is standard procedure in Washington, D.C. for a new administration to reverse course on many of the initiatives of the previous administration, particularly if it represents the other political party. After eight years of the Bush administration, one might reasonably expect the Obama administration to change direction.

We need to “CHANGE” Obama before it’s too late

There is a letter authored by a military veteran making the rounds of the Internet that shouts loudly and clearly that all Americans MUST undergo an attitude change and get more involved in political affairs.  That letter will do about as much good as giving a piss ant a bucket and telling him to drain Lake Superior, and I’ll tell you why.

Why Not “Test Drive” the Fairness Doctrine At the Oscars?

With liberal heavy weights like former President Bill Clinton and Shreeker of the House Nancy Pelosi clamoring for a return to the Fairness Doctrine, perhaps we who dwell on the right wing side of the universe should open our tiny minds, just a smidgen, to the concept?

Obama’s Failing Economic Recovery Plan

Despite trillions in so-called “economic stimulus” efforts from Washington elites, economic experts continue to predict “tougher times ahead and more stimulus needed.” Democrats strong-armed their 40 year wish list of leftist spending through congress without a single supporter across the aisle and even seven fellow Democrats opposed.

Learning the Free Market Lessons about Bailouts

My first reaction, when I saw the article, was of utter horror. It was entitled, “Obama Imposes Pay Cap on Executives.” Obama intends to dictate salary caps to American executives of private companies.  We should all be very frightened of a government that seeks such power. It’s pure communism. The only result of such a situation can be that corporate executives and CEOs become mere employees with no incentives to build the business and increase profits. When that happens, there is no business.

The new age of post-bipartisanship demands policy directed by a scientist, not a zealot

The United States is stuck in Frankenstein’s Laboratory

We are sadly in a time in our country when we have no choice left but to fight for it.  Notice I didn’t say gossip about it with friends, scream about it over coffee or give up because of depression or apathy!  The U.S.  is now being dissected in Frankenstein’s laboratory.  Lets see,  a little arm of Internationalism and submission to global elites here and a mangled leg of Marxism there.  Here we see a twisted head of victimization and another arm of immorality and Godlessness!  Doctor, the creature is starting to move and he is glowing with rage.  “What can he destroy to focus this anger?”

Try Real ‘Change’ Toward North Korea

Claudia Rosett, Forbes

Quick quiz on North Korea:

Can you name a single democratic dissident currently active inside North Korea? Just one? Is there any North Korean equivalent to Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi? Is there a North Korean Andrei Sakharov, Lech Walesa or Nelson Mandela? Is there any parallel to any of the dissidents who agitated openly for years in South Korea to bring about the 1988 switch from dictatorship to democracy in Seoul?
