Alan Carlin is a brave man. He notes at the end of this Fox and Friends interview this morning that things are “strained” at his agency, but he “still has a job.” For now. What I’m hearing: According to insiders, Carlin is not the only one who has faced/may face possible retaliation by the eco-zealous […]
I don’t know about you, but the idea of anyone in Washington fuming about fine print while they ram thousand-page bills through Congress that no one bothers to read is, well, triple-snort-worthy: President Barack Obama asked Congress on Tuesday to create a new agency to police the fine print on consumer products like credit cards […]
Wal-Mart announced today that it was backing Obama’s government health care plan. The discount retail giant was joined by the Service Employees International Union and the left-wing Center for American Progress. CQ reports: Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, announced Tuesday that it would support a mandate on businesses to help expand health care coverage, […]
Sex, lies, and tears.
Need another reason to be disgusted with the media’s never-ending Michael Jackson fixation? Stephen Gordon notes: Michelle Malkin and I had made suggestions that ABC News allow John Stossel to participate in their White House special with President Obama regarding the proposed government takeover of the health care industry. While ABC didn’t heed our sage […]
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Obama’s ground troops are back. The ACORN criminal racket has moved away from illegally breaking into homes back to mobbing financial institutions. Today: Protesters in more than a dozen cities across the country are demanding that a group of mortgage companies who benefited from federal bailout money participate in a government […]
Ugh. I am so maddeningly sick of the never-ending Michael Jackson circus, sucking up all the MSM oxygen and drawing out all the race hustlers and cable TV rats. Al Sharpton. Jesse Jackson. Celebrity lawyers. Sewage on parade. Here’s a man whose legacy and name you should tell your children about instead: U.S. Marine Corps […]
Photoshop: Leo Alberti A reader with deep expertise in the mining industry took the time to break down the House members who voted yes to cap-and-tax on Friday by coal-producing state. He writes: I just developed a table of all the Representatives from coal-producing states who voted for Cap & Trade. Included on the table […]
I rolled my eyes a few weeks ago when GOP Whip Eric Cantor whined that Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t meet with Republicans. Instead of wasting breath looking desperate, the GOP leadership should have been making sure each and every member fully understood the devastating impact of cap-and-tax and had properly girded their loins against being bought […]
It’s truly monstrous and evil. But you won’t see wall-to-wall coverage on MSNBC or in the New York Times. The alleged rapist is a prominent gay health researcher at Duke University. The victim is his own adopted, five-year-old son, whom he offered up on the Internet to other molesters. Thomas Lifson and Mike Adams do […]
Black and white.
Would Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales have done this for Fox News or the Washington Times? And if he had/has, wouldn’t the New York Times editorial page blast him for colluding to suppress information from the public? For seven months, The New York Times managed to keep out of the news the fact that one of […]
Earlier this month, Texas Tea Party activist Katrina Pierson invited Hollyweird Tea Party-basher Janeane Garofalo to the July 4 Independence Day Tea Party in Dallas. Katrina and friends (yours truly included) have issued one more invite to the shindig in the spirit of outreach and education. Come on down, Janeane. What are you afraid of?
Gone fishin’. Talk amongst yourselves!
Photoshop: Leo Alberti It’s not just what’s in the bill. It’s the way they rammed it through the House. Just like the porkulus: Under-handed, transparency-defying, and stuffed with earmark payoffs and bribes concocted in middle-of-the night, backroom deals. Taxpayers are mad again. And they’re not going to sit still. Impromptu flash protests are taking place […]
Introducing the GOP’s Cap-And-Tax 8… Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti I listed them earlier tonight, but am breaking out a separate post to spotlight them again. The 8 cap-and-tax Republican turncoats again are: Bono Mack (CA) (202) 225-5330 Castle (DE) (202) 225-4165 Kirk (IL) (202) 225-4835 (And he’s seriously considering running for Senate!) Lance (NJ) (202) […]

This is a red flag. On the House floor this afternoon, Barney Frank explained the “placeholder” in the cap and trade bill that apparently will deal with regulations of financial derivatives market associated with reducing carbon emissions. Frank says he is confident a “good system will be in place.” In other words: Trust him. Hello? […]
Cap and tax liveblog, Pt II: Pay attention to House floor games; 14 undecideds; let's play "Where's the Bill?"
(Continuing from morning liveblogging…keep refreshing browser for latest updates…) At approx. 2:35pm Eastern, GOP Rep. Joe Barton announced that there is now a placeholder in the bill to be determined later. Barton notes that this is unprecedented. He can’t recall any final passage of a bill that has a placeholder in it. What the hell […]
Members of Congress don’t have enough time to read through the 1,200-page cap-and-trade (truth in advertising: cap-and-TAX) monstrosity that will radically alter the economy in the name of the environment… …but they have time to pause for a moment of silence to mark the death of Hollyweirdo Michael Jackson. Can we have a moment of […]
Glimpse of the future.
