Porkulus: Cash for Tax Cheats

May 26, 2011 by


By Michelle Malkin When President Obama signed the trillion-dollar stimulus law in 2009, he proclaimed that he was “keeping the American dream alive in our time.” The stimulator-in-chief failed to mention that billions would be spent keeping American tax scammers afloat on our dime. At a congressional hearing on Tuesday, federal auditors reported on the […]

The Problem With The Economy Is Obama

September 9, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba On Tuesday evening during a CNN news hour anchored by Wolf Blitzer, he and his guest, David Gergen, the channel’s senior political analyst and a journalist with experience inside the White House as well as reporting on it, were discussing the many polls that show that the Democrat Party will likely lose […]

Shoveling Borrowed Dollars

February 18, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba You will not find much about “shovel ready” projects on the White House website, but there is an entire site,, that extols the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act that was signed into law a year ago. I generally do not spend much time on federal government websites and especially on those […]

What Has Obama Accomplished?

December 12, 2009 by


By Nancy Morgan Making the rounds of conservative talk shows lately is the question, “What has Obama accomplished so far?” The question is asked of of Obama supporters and the answers range from ‘abolishing lobbyists’ to ‘securing world peace’ to ‘lowering taxes.’ One thing all answers have in common: They are all grounded in perception […]

Fore! Cash For Clunkers Hits The Links

October 30, 2009 by


By Nick Loris [picapp src=”5/9/4/7/Cash_For_Clunkers_85e1.jpg?adImageId=6994692&imageId=5767347″ width=”300″ height=”200″ /] Wonder what ‘Par’ is for this hole? This is not a new story from the Wall Street Journal, but certainly one worth noting: “We thought cash for clunkers was the ultimate waste of taxpayer money, but as usual we were too optimistic. Thanks to the federal tax […]

Vote For Your Favorite Barack Obama Theme Song

August 20, 2009 by


Little ditties have long been a part of Presidential campaigns, but I don’t think there has ever been a actual theme song for a President before. We HOPE to CHANGE that. After all, a man who is dedicating his term of office to vastly increasing the federal defecit, increasing the taxes we pay for utilities, […]

Voters Awakening; GOP Gaining Ground

August 17, 2009 by


By Gregory D. Lee For the sixth straight week, Rasmussen Reports poll of voters for a generic candidate for Congress had more people voting for the Republican than the Democrat. In the latest poll, Republicans led Democrats by a 5 percent margin, the highest in recent years. More interesting is that independents preferred a Republican […]

Listen To Barney Frank Or Listen To America? President Obama’s Big Choice

August 8, 2009 by


By Newt Gingrich America is sending President Obama a message. By asking questions at town hall meetings and answering questions from pollsters, Americans are telling President Obama that they don’t trust big government plans for health care. At the same time, liberals in Congress are pushing for big government plans for health care. And so […]

America Needs A Take-Home Pay Raise

August 2, 2009 by


By Newt Gingrich It’s a frustration I hear all the time. With the mainstream media, Washington insiders and the so-called “experts” in elite universities all singing off the same leftwing song sheet, there is a desperate need for the facts and the arguments that support time honored American values and principles that lead to safety, […]

Obama’s Health Scare Tactics Won’t Work This Time

July 23, 2009 by


Back when we “absolutely needed” the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 to save us from impending doom in the financial markets, I wrote that the crisis was being overblown in order to shove that enormous spending bill down the voters’ throats. That analysis has held up to this point and I believe history will […]

Stimulus Surrealism

July 21, 2009 by


By Mark Scribner I am slowly being convinced that Obama’s so-called “stimulus” plan is really just a piece of neo-Dadaist performance art. Today’s evidence supporting my theory comes from The Morning Call in Allentown, PA: The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is spending $60,000 of its stimulus money on $2,000 road signs to highlight projects funded […]

Sit Back, Relax, And Enjoy The Destruction Of America

July 15, 2009 by


The other morning, I was surfing through the cable news channels, and I happened to stop at a show where Glenn Beck was making a guest appearance. He was talking about how most people, in regards to America’s current troubles, have developed a sense of apathy. He also mentioned that a phrase he hears uttered […]

While Washington Bleeds Taxpayers Dry, Here Is A Conservative Solution

July 13, 2009 by


By Dick McDonald The $780 Billion Stimulus Bill was rushed through Congress so fast no Senator or Representative ever read the bill.  President Obama assured us that it was the economic stimulus that would keep unemployment under 8 percent.  Now that unemployment has raced past 9.4 percent just a few months later the Democrat-controlled media […]

The Bankrupt Party of Porkulus

July 11, 2009 by


By Michelle Malkin Let there be no doubt: Democrats are the party with two ideas: borrow and spend. The only vigorous internal debate on the left revolves around two questions: How much and how much more? Even as the first trillion-dollar stimulus craters, the debt-o-crats are floating yet another grand act of generational theft to […]

Biden On Economy: We Forgot To Carry The Two.

July 7, 2009 by


From The Endive The News Leader of the Known Universe. Vice President Joe Biden admitted today that in his economic stimulus calculations with the President, he forgot to carry the two. “That was my bad,” said Biden, “I thought we were going to end up about $20 billion in debt. It turns out that it’s […]

We Are Getting A Lot Of Czars Per Obama Now Baby!

July 2, 2009 by


Here a Czar, there a Czar, everywhere a Czar Czar, old Obama had a Czar, eieio Forget about miles per gallon. Let’s talk about something more important, mainly,  how many czars per Obama are you getting? One of, if not our biggest supporters, Erica, recently asked us if we could put together of the “czars” […]

Obama Should Leave GM Alone & Beat Up On North Korea For A While

June 24, 2009 by


When Joe Biden predicted during the 2008 campaign that, if elected, Barack Obama would quickly be tested by the world, many people (some for the first time) took Biden seriously. And yes, it is more likely that it was not Biden’s prediction but rather something he was warned of and should have kept quiet about, […]

When Government Goes Insane

May 27, 2009 by


Alan Caruba. I have this theory that every so often governments go insane. Usually they have someone who is already demented heading up the government, but it takes a majority of the elected body to enact crazy laws and it takes the government apparatchiks to engineer the systemic failures, the wars, and the crazed rush […]

Barney Frank – ACORN’s Public Defender

May 23, 2009 by


From Sammy Benoit at ‘The Lid’. Last year ACORN perpetuated perhaps the largest voter fraud in American History, they were convicted of, or being investigated for voter fraud in 14 states (marked in Map from Rottenacorn). The Democrat’s favorite voter fraud group, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) was also given a […]

Washington Can’t Meet The Cheerios Standard

May 16, 2009 by


Michelle Malkin I think it’s time we applied the same advertising standards to Washington’s legislative products that the feds apply to breakfast foods. The Food and Drug Administration rapped General Mills this week for making misleading claims about the benefits of Cheerios. The food manufacturer says the whole-grain O’s are “clinically proven to lower cholesterol.” […]

The Selective Transparency Of Barack Obama

May 7, 2009 by


Michelle Malkin. Sunlight is for suckers. The New York Post reported on Tuesday that the White House will not release the $328,835 snapshots taken of the president’s Boeing VC-25A that buzzed lower Manhattan. The entire world has seen news and amateur photos and videos of the incident, but if President Obama has his way, taxpayers […]

100 Days Of Devastatingly Swift Success

May 1, 2009 by


Newt Gingrich. To mark President Obama’s 100th day in office, I’m going to say something you might find unexpected, even shocking: President Obama’s first 100 days have been spectacularly successful. President Obama is the strongest domestic Democratic President since Lyndon Johnson. His ability to get Democrats in Congress to give him things that undermine their […]
