Rubio vs. Obama, Cuba edition

Marco Rubio’s op-ed utterly demolishes President Obama’s decision to normalize relations with Cuba. In his op-ed, Sen. Rubio correctly states that President Obama’s decision will have long-lasting, negative consequences — for us and the oppressed Cuban people: The opportunity for Cuba to normalize relations with the U.S. has always been there, but the Castro regime […]

Obama’s amnesty order ruled unconstitutional

We received some good news and some bad news today. The good news? A federal district court judge in Pennsylvania has ruled parts of Obama’s executive immigration orders unconstitutional, accusing him of bypassing Congress in granting deportation relief and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants. The bad news? The judge’s decision does not invalidate any of Obama’s executive orders. Still, this ruling creates some problems for Obama as he faces several challenges to his immigration policies, including a 24-state lawsuit being heard in Texas which alleges that Obama violated the constitutional limits of his presidential power. In the decision by Judge Arthur Schwab in Pittsburgh , he dismissed the White House’s legal reasoning in granting the orders. He stated that the president had the authority to issue executive orders and interpret the law, but that “(his) unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution … and therefore is unconstitutional.” He also stated that the guidelines created by Obama established an entirely new system for granting relief to large groups of individuals which goes well beyond the president’s authority. Considering Obama’s track record on all things constitutional, along with the feckless leadership we get […]

Vote NO on John Boehner for House Speaker

Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame member John Boehner (R-INO OH) has had a very busy job since the election. So far, he conspired with Obama to fund Barry’s executive amnesty, lied about defunding Obamacare, and led the charge in passing a bill granting the NSA unlimited authority to spy on Americans without a warrant. As we look at his job “performance” since November, Conservatives are rightly asking the question: where do we go from here? One great place to start would be to do all we can to make sure he isn’t the Speaker of the House for the next two years. Although the media and their inside-the-beltway buddies want you to think he has already been elected Speaker for the 114th Congress, that is simply not true. So far, he has only been nominated for the job. The actual vote doesn’t take place until January. So, is it possible to kick his sorry butt to the “former-speaker” curb along with Nancy Pelosi? Absolutely! All we need to keep Boehner from re-election is 30 Conservatives to vote NO! Can it make a difference? Is it possible to do? According to an article by Erick Erickson on, it’s not […]

Kathleen Sebelius – All Obamacare needs is an image consultant

The Affordable Care Act, the law that Jonathan Gruber (the architect of Obamacare) admitted was full of lies designed to deceive Americans because they are just too stupid to know what’s good for them, isn’t really all that bad. In fact, all it really needs to make it better is an image consultant. At least that’s the word from former Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, who suggested a simple fix to the “bad brand” of Obamacare — CHANGE THE NAME.   In the words of Tommy Flanagan, the Pathological Liar character play by Jon Lovitz on Saturday Night Live…   Actually, the rebranding strategy has worked quite well for the looney-left for quite some time now. Murdering your unborn child via abortion? That’s called “a choice.” Exploding government spending? They call that “an investment.” Raising your taxes? That’s just “paying your fair share.” Well, you get the idea. Back to Sebelius and her Politico interview. “Obamacare, no question, has a very bad brand that has been driven intentionally by a lot of misinformation and a lot of paid advertising,” said Sebelius Actually, I agree with Sebelius on this one, although not in the manner she thinks. Her implication is […]
