The State of Illusion Address, 2012

Poll: 63 Percent Oppose Obama’s Executive Order Fascism

Since losing control of Congress in the 2010 midterm elections, President Obama has increasingly turned to executive orders, regulations, and federal fiats to implement his agenda in a program the White House has dubbed "We Can't Wait."

Another Obama Advisor Favors Health Care Rationing

Don’t Like ObamaCare? Stay Poor

Some of us have long argued the Obama administration is pushing a two-track system of financial bondage for the nation: tremendous profits and options for the ruling class, with cradle-to-grave socialism for the penniless underclass. In between, the middle class will be squeezed into non-existence. Enter Neal Kumar Katyal, the acting Solicitor General and former assistant to Elena Kagan. Katyal … [Read more...]

Obama: America Was Not a “Great Country,” 1776-1965

As the nation digests Barack Obama's plan to ride a tax hike to re-election, one phrase from yesterday's budget speech confirms what this author has long stated: the president is fundamentally an anti-American Messianic figure who believes he was sent to save our nation from itself and its Founders. Speaking a line that was written in advance, approved by multiple layers of handlers and advisers, … [Read more...]

Death (Panels) and Taxes

Barack Obama has unveiled his agenda for balancing the budget: Raising taxes on the living, then sending them to an early grave.
