Supreme Court EPA decision: Some good news and some bad news

July 4, 2015
EPA Regulations

The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) has been harsh on the Obama Administration’s regulatory overreach (remember Hobby Lobby and the National Labor Relations Board vs. Noel Canning decision) and this week’s decision on mercury and air toxics standards for power plants—known as the MATS regulations—serves as a severe smack down and has the potential to impact future regulations like the Clean Power Plan (CPP), which is even more far-reaching and costly than MATS. Addressing CPP, American Electric Power President and CEO Charles Patton sees that the ruling “provides the basis for future litigation.” A multi-state coalition tried to stop the proposed CPP…

Conservative Comedy 7/3/15

4th of July 2015 1

Happy Independence Day! It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative where I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Unfortunately, Independence Day has turned into dependence day for many Americans under Obama. Thanks to his anti-employment, “spread the wealth” policies we now have the lowest workforce participation rate since 1977, and over 93 million people who aren’t in the work force (which means Obama thinks they don’t even exist as far as unemployment calculations are concerned). But the Conservative…

Republican Congress to blame for Obamacare ruling

June 26, 2015
Double Facepalm

The Supreme Court struck another blow to liberty with its second consecutive ruling supporting Obamacare. Just as before, the court had to rewrite the law in order to make it fit their ruling. In 2012, John Roberts changed the law when he ruled that the individual mandate—clearly unconstitutional as a mandate—was really a tax, and therefore legal. In yesterday’s ruling with King v. Burwell, he decided that an exchange NOT created by a state actually IS “an exchange created by a state.” And while it is popular to scream—justifiably—about judicial tyranny and executive power abuse, I must squarely place the…

Mitch McConnell’s yellow streak with Obamacare continues

June 10, 2015
McConnell Obamacare Root and Branch

While America waits for the Supreme Court decision later this month in the King v. Burwell case, which would end federal subsidies to those who enrolled for Obamacare through instead of a state-run exchange, Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame enshrinee Mitch McConnell has been under fire for lacking the guts to repeal and replace the failed socialistic program. On Monday, McConnell declined to discuss the details of an alleged Republican backup plan for Obamacare if the Supremes rule against the administration: “We’ll have a plan that makes sense for the American people,” McConnell said in an interview…

Conservative Comedy 1/16/15

Barry's GITMO releases

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. In a rare admission of failure, White House spokesweasel Josh Earnest conceded that the administration made a mistake by not sending any high-profile official to the anti-terror solidarity rally, which caused people around the world to wonder just whose side Barack Obama is on. Happily, any confusion was cleared up on Wednesday when, just after al-Qaeda’s branch in Yemen…
