Obama’s chief strategist stupidly blames Tea Party for downgrade

By Gabriella Schwarz (CNN):  President Barack Obama’s chief re-election strategist on Sunday blamed Standard & Poor’s downgrade of the United States’ credit rating on tea party conservatives who made raising the federal debt ceiling a political issue. “This is essentially a tea party downgrade,” David Axelrod told the CBS program “Face the Nation.” “The tea […]

Debt Ceiling debacle – Total Tea Party Betrayal

Abandoned on the Field as the ‘Nobles’ Surrender By Mark America:  The talking points prevailing in the wake of the debt ceiling debacle would have you believe that this deal had been a compromise, and the best for which conservatives and Tea Party ought to have hoped possible.  At the end of the debates lies […]

Is the Debt Ceiling Legislation Unconstitutional?

  By Herb Titus & William Olson (American Thinker): In a Constitutional Republic of the sort that we thought we had, the process by which laws are made is at least as important as the laws that are enacted.  Our Constitution prescribes that law-making process in some detail, but those who voted for the “Budget […]

Top Murkowski aide, central to reelection, headed to prison

They hate Palin because they can’t control her

By AWR Hawkins (BigGovernment.com): No one in recent memory has faced the left’s vitriol like Sarah Palin (not even George W. Bush).

The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than […]

Drug Test Congress

This past June, Florida’s Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill into law requiring welfare recipients to be tested for illicit substances. This popular legislation weeds Florida druggies out from the public dole. Given the idiocy demonstrated by the Ruling Class over the past several weeks, I’ve been thinking that Gov. Scott’s novel legislation could find […]

Murkowski Signals Support for Reid Debt Bill

The Hill (by Josiah Ryan): Forty-three GOP senators on Saturday signed a letter addressed to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) expressing opposition to his debt-ceiling legislation currently being considered in the upper chamber.
