Hillary Turns Left

The economic illiteracy of the the Democrat party is on full display as Hillary tries to make the ridiculous claim that businesses do not create jobs. Thats is correct. She said that this is, “trickle down economics.”  No Hillary, is the free market. I remember the 80’s and 90’s. The private sector – relatively unencumbered … More Hillary Turns Left

What has the Democrats most upset at their party? Not social issues…

Obama’s immigration order threats mean Ex-Im Bank is probably dead

There has been a lot of speculation about the president ordering a mass de facto legalization of millions of unauthorized immigrants “by summer’s end” (Charles Krauthammer, NRO), and the possibility that he might just be hoping for an impeachment reaction, judging by Dan Pfeiffer’s reaction (Reid Epstein, Wall Street Journal). His fellow Democrats appear giddy just at the … More Obama’s immigration order threats mean Ex-Im Bank is probably dead

What Scandal?

The most transparent administration in history has some serious problems with this thing called integrity.  The real scandal is how ill informed the voting public has become.  Ask people about the Louis Lerner and they do not have a clue.  Ask them about Fast and Furious and they think you are talking about a car movie. … More What Scandal?

Elizabeth Warren backs the Bank of Boeing

To her supporters, Senator Elizabeth Warren is a champion of the downtrodden and bane of the wealthy. To those of us who know better, she’s a government-always-first leftist who is quite fine with helping the biggest and wealthiest corporations in America so long as the government grows. We have the Heritage Foundation to thank for … More Elizabeth Warren backs the Bank of Boeing

Obama’s Foregn Policy Disaster

Did T-Mac just hand northern Arlington to the Republicans?

For obvious reasons, the more watched of the two special elections to take place on the 19th of August will be the State Senate election in Southwest Virginia. Control of the State Senate depends upon that outcome.

Does Don Beyer Practice What He Preaches?

We’ve already noted fmr. Lt. Gov. Don Beyer’s radio commercial where he stakes out some pretty extreme positions in his race for the Democratic nomination in Virginia’s open 8th congressional district. There’s one thing that has jumped out at me during my repeated hearings of Beyer’s ad on WMAL. Beyer’s campaign says in the radio … More Does Don Beyer Practice What He Preaches?

Irony – Bush 41 Gets JFK Profile In Courage Award For RAISING Taxes

Fmr. President George H.W. Bush (a.k.a. “41”) was honored with the John F. Kennedy Profile In Courage award yesterday for raising taxes as part of the 1990 budget deal. Why they decided to honor him nearly 24 years after the fact is a mystery to me.
