Taxpayers Lose $23.5 Million to Pay IRS Union Members to Do Union Business On The Clock
  12 Aug 2014      1:45 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Here is a perfect example of why unions should be outlawed for all government workers. And I do mean all government workers. A new study finds that we, the American taxpayer, are ripped off to the tune of $23.5 million a year in tax money that goes to pay IRS union members to do union work while they are on the clock and supposed to be working for we, the people.
That’s right, you the taxpayer are paying IRS workers not to do IRS work. You are paying IRS employees to …

Obama Cancels Obamacare in the US Territories and Protectorates
  21 Jul 2014     3:21 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Obamacare is the best thing for everybody. Right? I mean, isn’t that what Democrats keep saying? So, why did Obama just take Obamacare away from all our protectorates and territories? Well, the answer to that is because Obamacare doesn’t work, that’s why.
When Obama first strongarmed his law through Congress in the dead of night with not a single supporting vote from the minority party (the first time this ever happened with a major piece of legislation) he said it was the answer to all our healthcare woes. Obamacare is what …

Obama Thinks You’re too Stupid to Pick Good Food, Wants ‘Talking Shopping Cart’ to Guide You
  19 Jul 2014     11:26 am      Warner Todd Huston

So, you are just a lowly, stupid American that needs Obama to guide you in all aspects of your life. In fact, you are so stupid you don’t know how to pick the “right” foods, so The One wants you to use his “talking shopping cart” in the grocery store, a device that will “congratulate” you when you put the “right” food into the basket.

How arrogant is this man?

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is suggesting major changes to grocery stores to “nudge” Americans to purchase healthier foods when they …

If Chicagoans Would Vote for Commie Karen Lewis, They Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Vote at All
  15 Jul 2014      3:56 pm      Warner Todd Huston

A new poll of likely Chicago voters seems to find that Mayor Rahm Emanuel is in bad shape for his re-election coming up next year. The poll shows that two other candidates are far and away more popular than the incumbent mayor. One of those two is Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis, a woman who is nearly an out and proud communist. But, if Chicagoans would vote for Lewis, they don’t deserve the vote at all.

This new Chicago Sun-Times poll shows Emanuel losing–and badly–to two other possible mayoral candidates …

Now Destroying Unions is the Same as Reforming Government
  8 Jul 2014     2:25 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Years ago folks that stood against unions always had that one obstacle of “private” concerns in the way of urging people away from unionism. But today, with most unions being tied directly to government, now fighting unions is an act of beneficial government reform.

Once upon a time, the biggest hurdle for those arguing against unionism was the simple truth–and it was a truth–that unions and businesses were private concerns and if the two entities agreed to co-exist, who was an anti-union activist to say anything against the arrangement?
This is a …

Professor Jedediah Purdy Wants You Forced to Follow His Religion
  7 Jul 2014     2:06 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Professor Jedediah Purdy of Duke University Law School feels that you are not thinking right and therefore he wants you forced through “conflict” to accept his religion.

I assure you that this wouldn’t be his interpretation of the under girding of the essay he disgorged at Politico last week, but that is exactly what he is advocating nonetheless because his entire recipe for fixing our political culture is built on a religious-like belief in shadowy crises that he feels are besetting the country.
In fact, even as he pretended to be offering …

Obama’s Buttinski Trademark Board Hadn’t Received ONE Complaint About Redskins Name
  3 Jul 2014     2:16 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Obama’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board which last month jumped into the debate about the evils of the football team’s name and summarily declared the name “Redskins” to be “offensive” has now admitted that there was no cause for its actions.
This shows how Obama’s government is a left-wing, activist government that does not respond to we, the people, but actively looks for ways to tear down this country and remake it in their lord’s image. We now find out that when the buttinski trademark board that illicitly ruled that …

SCOTUS Unanimously Slaps Down Obama on Recess Appointments
  26 Jun 2014     3:21 pm      Warner Todd Huston

This one is pretty amazing. The US Supreme Court has delivered a unanimous slap to the President saying that his recess appointments were illicit. Even the court’s liberals said Obama was wrong on this.

If you are out of the loop, here is what happened: Obama wanted to make some extremely partisan appointments to the National Labor Relations board (NLRB) so that he could deliver even more pro union decisions in the disputes between labor and businesses that the NLRB is set up to adjudicate.
The U.S. Senate did not like his …

Obama Advertising for ‘Escorts’ to ‘Resettle’ Thousands of Illegal Aliens
  21 Jun 2014     8:46 pm      Warner Todd Huston

First he creates a national crisis with his loose immigration laws that entice tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to flood across our southern border bringing the disease-ridden lowest rung of society from central and south America, then he wants to hire people to transport them throughout the country–naturally at the taxpayer’s expense.

Here is the description in an ad Obama put out as far back as January…

Red Skinner: Obama Again Using ‘Regulation’ As A Weapon Against America
  19 Jun 2014     12:13 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Barack Obama has become an expert at using his powers to regulate as a weapon to destroy Americans he doesn’t like. Just as he attempted to use the IRS to destroy conservatives, as he’s used the EPA to destroy our energy sector, as he used Obamacare to eliminate freedom of religion, Obama and his thuggish administration has now attempted to force a football team to stop using a name Obama doesn’t like.

On Wednesday Obama’s U.S. Patent and Trademark Office summarily eliminated the trademark protection for the Washington Redskins’ name and …

The University of Chicago Needs Some Occupy Wall Street
  17 Jun 2014     4:26 pm      Warner Todd Huston

If you’ll recall, the brief but noisy Occupy Wall street movement was all about protesting the “One Percent,” those evil rich folks that apparently return nothing to the nation. Well a look at the compensation of those at the University of Chicago in President Obama’s home city shows that the Occupy folks were protesting the wrong people! It looks like the one percent reside at the UofC.

A very in depth article by David Francis Mihalyfy reveals what he calls a university mired in outsized compensation “hidden by a PR machine, …

Illinois Ranks as ‘Worst’ For Small Businesses
  16 Jun 2014     2:13 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Once again Illinois and California are neck-and-neck in the calculations for the worst of the worst U.S. states, this time in a measure of how friendly the states are for the growth of small businesses.

Earlier this month thumbtack.com released its third annual survey of the climate for small businesses exploring such ratings as the overall friendliness of the state to small businesses, the ease of starting a business, regulations, ease of hiring new employees, taxes, and other criteria.
The poll was conducted among over 12,000 small business owners across the country.

Leftist Donna Brazile Warns The GOP Civil War is Over, The Tea Party Won
  13 Jun 2014     1:35 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Old Clinton hack Donna Brazile has a message for her readers: the GOP civil war is over and the Tea Party won. While Brazile is usually fully expected to be typically and wholly wrong in her left-wing proclamations and while asking a liberal what is going on with conservatives is usually a waste of time, like the stopped clock, Brazile got this one more or less right.

Brazile piece written her piece for CNN notes that the whole of Washington was surprised by GOP strongman Eric Cantor’s primary loss and is …

Income Inequality FAR Worse in Liberal States Where Socialist Policies Reign
  8 Jun 2014     1:46 pm      Warner Todd Huston

The left’s latest, most favorite drum to beat is “income inequality” where they whine that the rich are too rich and the poor are barred by conservative policies from ever being able to catch up in pay.

But it turns out that liberal states have worse income inequality than red states.
Richard K. Vedder and Stephen J. Moore recently crunched the numbers…

For those in Washington obsessed with reducing income inequality, the standard prescription involves raising taxes on the well-to-do, increasing the minimum wage, and generally expanding government benefits–the policies characterizing liberal, blue-state …

Now Obama Is Coming for Your Cigars, America
  6 Jun 2014     1:14 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Obama’s Food and Drug Administration is targeting your cigars, America, and if you are a cigar lover you’d better pay attention because if Obama gets his way costs will soar.

The USFDA is proposing a whole slew of new regulations changing the way the government treats cigars, one if which is to outlaw cigar sales over the Internet.
There are some other onerous and downright absurd regulations being proposed, too.
In one case, Obama plans to make it illegal to have walk-in humidors at your local cigar shop.
Another, extremely costly regulation would …

Liberal Woman Can’t Understand Why Her Vote Raises Her Taxes
  5 Jun 2014      2:04 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Austin, Texas is the most liberal section of the Lone Star State. It is the state capital and a college town, so you know it is jammed full of half-witted liberals. And if you need a perfect example of that liberal mental disorder the Austin American-Statesman had a great one with an interview with a liberal voter who just couldn’t understand why her vote for every liberal plan on the ballot ended up making her taxes go up every year.
On May 31, the Statesman published a story on how Austiners …

Google VP Publicly Flogs Own Company for Lack of Diversity
  3 Jun 2014     12:56 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Laszlo Bock, Senior Vice President, People Operations, has publicly spoken out about the “lack of diversity” among Google employees. Despite Google’s far left-wing company culture, he is apologetic and wants users to know that there are reasons that Google isn’t “diverse” enough.
The reliably left-wing Google has for years tried to hide its astonishing lack of diversity from public view, but has apparently decided to come clean.
In a May 28 Google blog post Bock finally made to lift the veil of secrecy in which Google had enshrouded its employment statistics and …

Jewish Lobbying Group Wins Suit Against IRS–Targeted Because of Being Pro-Israel
  1 Jun 2014     1:42 pm      Warner Todd Huston

A pro-Jewish lobbying organization called Z Street recently filed a lawsuit against Obama’s IRS after the agency refused to give the group a tax status because, the IRS said, the group might be funding terrorism in Israel.
As Lori Lowenthal Marcus said on Greta Van Susteren’s Fox News show:

“They told us terrorism happens in Israel. Therefore, they had to look into our organization because they thought we might be funding terrorism. We’re a purely educational entity. We didn’t fund anybody. We barely funded ourselves.”

Z Street filed a lawsuit after being told …

Bankrupt Illinois Spent $12 Million on Medicaid for Dead People
  15 May 2014     2:54 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Illinois is constantly at the bottom in every metric that measures our most successful states. It is perennially either the 48th, 49th, or 50th worst state in every category. And now we learn that the state is spending up to $12 million a year that it doesn’t have on Medicaid for people who are dead! Can this state become more of a joke?
The Associated Press recently filed a Freedom of Information Act request and uncovered a disturbing memo from the Illinois state auditor.

Government Motors Ranked Worse Company to Deal With by Suppliers
  12 May 2014      4:25 pm      Dave Blount

This won’t surprise anyone familiar with the effect Big Government has on everything it touches. Under Obama, the Feds “rescued” General Motors, transforming it into Government Motors, rather than letting capitalism take its course, which might have allowed GM to get out from under its insane union contracts and once again become a viable company. Not long afterward, we read this:
General Motors Co, already locked in a public relations crisis because of a deadly ignition defect that has triggered the recall of 2.6 million vehicles, has a new perception problem …
