It’s Not That Revolution May Be Coming, But That It Has to Come

And the People have to cause it. Here’s how we can make it happen. At the time it happened, Admiral Yamamoto’s brilliant sneak attack on Pearl Harbor was hailed as a masterstroke of military planning and execution. But within hours of the attack, after being informed that his aircraft had not destroyed America’s entire Pacific fleet,Read More

Conservative Comedy 6/26/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative where I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. According to Chief Justice John Roberts, “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them. If at all possible, we must interpret the act in a way that is consistent with the former, and avoids the latter.” So Roberts is again violating his duties by ruling on what he believes the intent was when one political party unilaterally passed an act they hadn’t bothered to read. And in coming to his conclusion, Roberts has had to ignore Jonathan Gruber’s plainspoken admissions that the Act was written to deliberately punish states which did not establish their own healthcare exchanges. The “pertinent statutory phrase” was clear, deliberate, and the exact opposite of what Roberts is now saying. But the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change  takes it a step further. The Affordable Care Act was written to destroy health insurance markets, so that when the full implementation of Obamacare fails (as it is already doing), no market solution will […]

Republican Congress to blame for Obamacare ruling

The Supreme Court struck another blow to liberty with its second consecutive ruling supporting Obamacare. Just as before, the court had to rewrite the law in order to make it fit their ruling. In 2012, John Roberts changed the law when he ruled that the individual mandate—clearly unconstitutional as a mandate—was really a tax, and therefore legal. In yesterday’s ruling with King v. Burwell, he decided that an exchange NOT created by a state actually IS “an exchange created by a state.” And while it is popular to scream—justifiably—about judicial tyranny and executive power abuse, I must squarely place the blame for this travesty where it belongs… a castrated Republican congress. A group all too happy to relinquish their constitutional responsibilities if they can add cash to their coffers. Under Boehner and McConnell, Congress surrendered the power of the purse granted under the Constitution which has resulted in a virtual rubber stamp on Obama’s socialistic transformation of America. If the House of Representatives had defunded Obamacare as they promised to do last November, this case would have been a mute point. Sadly, the court’s ruling today provides cover for the RINO leadership. As we learned during this court challenge, Mickey […]

Obama would rather pay ISIS than kill them

After recently admitting that his administration didn’t have a “complete strategy” to deal with the rising threat of ISIS, Obama announced a new executive order that establishes several new policies in an effort to make his policy more complete, specifically when kidnapped Americans are involved. Don’t get too excited—he isn’t launching a new military strategy to wipe out ISIS. Instead, his directive will establish a new hostage response group within the U.S. government to serve as the middle man in negotiations between terrorists and the families of hostages taken by terrorist groups. His plan, announced during a White House press conference yesterday, was an effort to make clear that families of hostages will take priority from now on. “(We’re) making it clear our top priority is the safe return of hostages. We are reaffirming the U.S. government will not make concessions, such as paying ransoms to terror groups holding hostages … (which) risks endangering more Americans. At the same time, we are clarifying our policy does not prevent communications with our hostage takers.” Wouldn’t it be nice if our Commander-in-Chief had a different top priority? For instance, it would seem to me that if we eliminated the hostage takers, getting […]

RINOs put America on the “fast track” to the end

  As I was preparing for today’s post, I was going to talk about how Republican presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) had seen the light on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and the “fast track” authority wanted by Obama. Alas, his change of heart was a bit too little, too late. The RINO dominated Senate voted yesterday to give Obama the fast track authority he covets. His new authority authorizes him to negotiate massive trade deals without Congress, and restricts lawmakers from making any amendments to any treaty he presents. The only action Congress can take is a simple yes or no vote. Opposition to this constitutional travesty was led by Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who failed to muster enough no votes to keep it from passing, even with the change of heart displayed by Senator Cruz. In an opinion piece published yesterday, Cruz explained his actions: “TPA in this Congress has become enmeshed in corrupt Washington backroom deal-making, along with serious concerns that it would open up the potential for sweeping changes in our laws that trade agreements typically do not include.” He added that “TPA’s progress through the House and Senate appears to have been made possible by […]

Karl Rove: Ban the 2nd Amendment to end gun violence

Sounding more like Barack Obama than a he should, Karl Rove indicated on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace that he might be in favor of voiding the Right to Bear Arms as “the only way to guarantee that we will dramatically reduce acts of violence involving guns is to basically remove guns from society,” adding that “until somebody gets enough ‘oomph’ to repeal the Second Amendment, that’s not going to happen,” so “I don’t think it’s an answer.” Depending on how much of a break you want to give the make-believe “architect” of the Republican party–I don’t call him the George Costanza of the GOP for nothing–his comments could be the sad sigh of regret we frequently get from the anti-gun liberals in Washington. Or, as some on the right are claiming, it could just be an unfortunate choice of words by someone who feels that a repeal of the Second Amendment is impossible, so we need to look somewhere else for an answer. Based on his close working relationship with folks like Mitch McConnell, a man with a checkered past when it comes to our gun rights, I’m inclined to believe that his ignorance of American history, along […]
