Australia shoots down carbon tax scheme

Thursday, July 17 was a big news day. The world was shocked to learn that a Russian-made missile shot down a Malaysian Airlines jet with 298 on board as it flew over Ukraine en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam. Though flight 17 eclipsed the news cycle, there was another thing shot down on July 17. Almost a year ago, Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott won a landslide election with a nearly single-issue campaign: repeal the carbon tax. On July 17, he made good on that promise, as the Australian Senate voted, 39 to 32, to abolish the “world’s biggest carbon…

Conservative Comedy 7/18/14

It’s time for some Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Despite the flood of illegal aliens, which Barack Obama called a “humanitarian crisis” requiring an emergency expenditure of $3.7 billion bucks (almost none of which will actually help secure the border), the busy, busy, busy president couldn’t take time off from glad-handing rich donors at fundraising events in Texas to actually visit the border and take a look at the…

Dr. Ben Carson’s alternative to Obamacare – Part Four

Ben Carson

In the usual back and forth between the Democrats who want socialized medicine and the rest of the world who don’t, the Saul Alinsky-ites of the left often rail about the lack of an alternative from the Republicans. Besides the fact that this is total bovine fecal matter—Bobby Jindal’s proposal for example—there have been many alternatives offered to improve our previous system without nuking it and turning it into a system like the one that brought you the V.A. scandal. As the new chairman of the Save Our Healthcare Project (a part of the American Legacy PAC), Dr. Carson is…

Now that the dust has settled on the Supreme Court’s 2014 session, we can look at the decisions and conclude that the Administration received a serious smack down. Two big cases got most of the news coverage: Hobby Lobby and the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) recess appointments. In both cases, the Administration lost. At the core of both, is the issue of the Administration’s overreach. Within the cases the Supreme Court heard, one had to do with energy—and it, too, offered a rebuke. You likely haven’t heard about Utility Air Regulatory Group (UARG) v. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—and may…

Benghazi trial

It’s time for some Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. When it comes to putting one of the so-called Benghazi terrorist “masterminds” on trial, no one can question the importance of assigning the proceedings to an exceptionally well qualified judge with a long and solid track record on the bench. Of course, that’s only if you want a legitimate verdict rather than a show trial that’s as staged as…
