Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama’s signature health care reform is dragging Democrats down.
“President Obama got some chilling news from a USA Today/Pew poll this week. Americans who oppose his health carehealth care law say they are significantly more likely to vote in November than those who support it. Democrats can lose the Senate if those numbers hold.
“On the other hand, the poll’s sample included 42 percent self-identified Read more [...]

Turtles and cows have absolutely no relevance to the situation in Nevada. Does the Constitution make provision for the federal government to own and control “public land”? This is the only question we need to consider. Currently, the federal government “owns” approximately 30% of the United States territory. The majority of this federally owned land is in the West. For example, the feds control more than 80% of Nevada and more than 55% of Utah. The question has been long debated. At the Read more [...]
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and his family are featured in a worshipful profile in this month's Washingtonian magazine.
It's the sort of adoring journalistic exercise reserved for only the most handsome of the power elite. In it you can find out details about the Carney dog (a cousin to presidential pooch Sonny!), and how much the press secretary's tie costs ($135).
But keen observers may notice the kitchen decor in the photo: Soviet propaganda posters. They really are the perfect Read more [...]

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) explained that, “in order to avoid violence and help restore order,” they were going to back down as tensions continued to rise in the area. They also relayed however that they weren’t Read more [...]
Maybe the Feds should just cancel the Obamas' endless vacation fund, rather than punishing children for parents' debts the government cannot prove are legitimate.
From the Washington Post:
A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government Read more [...]
Attorney General Eric Holder thinks that advocates of Constitutional freedoms have no common sense. For example, they don’t seem to like his latest bright idea – forcing gun owners to wear a bracelet if they want to use their firearm.
What AG Holder obviously forgets (or simply doesn’t care about) is the fact that gun ownership is not a privilege that the government can legislate. American citizens have the inalienable right to own and carry firearms and that right cannot be infringed Read more [...]
Bill O’Reilly took on Attorney General Eric Holder, his snapping at Louie Gohmert during a House hearing, and his comments that he’s being treated worse than his predecessors, with the strong implication it has to do with race. O’Reilly accused the attorney general of “using his skin color as a shield” to duck and dodge legitimate criticisms of his tenure.
O’Reilly said Holder was “heavily implying” the race factor in not just how he’s treated, but in howPresident Obama is Read more [...]

The Bureau of Land Management, whose Director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.

Obama can rant and rave about how the GOP hate women and want to go back to the 50′s when women could be put in their place, barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen. They hate women so much that they think women deserve a smaller paycheck compared to their male counterparts working the same job.
But what Obama won’t address is the White House’s own pay disparities between men and women employees. ABC News reported:
The latest U.S. Census statistics show that, on average, full-time working Read more [...]
