CPAC, freedom and saving the country

Attendees of last week's Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC), the nation's largest conference for conservatives, heard a few tried and true conservative messages from potential presidential candidates and activists alike — calls for lower taxes, more freedom for business, a strong national defense, the importance of killing the enemy and the need for a serious foreign policy.

FCC, FEC look to ruin the Internet

We knew this was coming. Within the last couple of weeks, both the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Election Commission declared their intention to regulate the Internet. Fascists always explain their actions as efforts to either make something more efficient, "fair," or to supposedly "protect" their target. Sometimes they simply lie, like saying they're nationalizing health insurance to make it more affordable and to increase access to health care.

Obama’s myopic crusade

Every week President Obama delivers some new experience that makes me wonder how the entire nation got dropped down Alice's rabbit hole all at once. Yet, in these first few weeks of Mr. Obama's last two years in office, he's made sure the United States won't turn into a collective Sally Field, exclaiming, "You like us! You really, really, like us!" Because, simply, he really, really, doesn't.

Payback from the IRS

The Internal Revenue Service's woes did not begin or end with Lois Lerner and the agency's targeting of political opponents with punitive action. Earlier this month we became painfully aware (again) that political games and punishing the taxpayer appear to be the burgeoning raison d'etre of the tax-collecting agency.

Terror undeterred by mass surveillance

The failure of the massive surveillance state established by liberal western governments is becoming more and more apparent. One such failure was accidentally confirmed by both Sen. Dianne Feinstein and House Speaker John Boehner in just the last week.

Saying no to terror as the new normal

- The Washington Times

As the world continues to reel from the horror of Islamist terrorism in France, one common refrain from commentators and “experts” is that this is now the new normal, that we must be prepared to deal with so-called lone-wolf terrorism for decades.

Hillary Clinton’s jaded sense of justice

The Benghazi massacre most certainly deserves to be a subject Hillary Rodham Clinton should be held accountable for and never allowed to forget. Yet there is another, even more recklessly dangerous thing that will affect Mrs. Clinton's designs on the White House: her attitude in general toward America's enemies.

Another Obamacare blow to personal privacy

Get ready to fight back: Last week, the Health and Human Services Department announced a plan to share your medical records with over 35 federal agencies — all in the name of "health care," of course. All in the name of "efficiency," the favorite excuse used by fascists wherever they appear.

Ferguson and the useful application of mayhem

For President Obama and his cronies, everything is political and everyone is a pawn. After a grand jury declined to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, the White House and Department of Justice immediately pushed the meme that the issue in Ferguson was about racism and policing. While a legitimate issue, in reality it is a symptom of the systemic problem of big-government-sponsored poverty, made worse by the liberal agenda so dear to Mr. Obama himself.

It's the Ebola incompetence, stupid

There are a few things in the world that we know for sure, including the existence of Ebola, what those infected go through, and the fact that, as of now, there is no cure or official universal treatment that mitigate its fatality rate said to be around 70 percent.
