Mr. President, what about a campaign-style push to talk up America?

One of the unique roles of the executive is to be a cheerleader for his/her individual state—or in the case of the President, for his country. This is, perhaps, best exemplified by Texas Governor Rick Perry who, as ABC News puts it: “has made a campaign-style push in states like California, Illinois and Missouri by hosting business meetings and appearing on TV and radio shows to promise low taxes and incentives for any businesses with an itch to relocate.” In June, Perry was in New York and Connecticut “to woo firearm manufacturers and other companies.” He launched a $1 million…

EPA: Environmental Protection Agency or Extremist Political Agenda?

During the week of July 28, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) held hearings in four cities: Atlanta, Denver, Pittsburgh, and Washington. DC. The two-day sessions were to allow the public to have their voice heard about the proposed rules it released on June 2 that will supposedly cut CO2 emissions by 30 percent. Many, including myself, believe that these rules are really an attempt to shut down coal-fueled electricity generation and implement a cap-and-trade program that the Administration couldn’t get through Congress in 2009, when cap-and-trade’s obvious allies held both houses of Congress. If the EPA’s plans were clear, direct,…

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…

The Hobby Lobby decision by the Supreme Court is a victory for religious freedom, yet the abortion lovers of the left continue to make the claim that it was an assault on a women’s right to “reproductive health”—which is PC-speak word for “pro-abortion.” Yet, if you listen to Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz—the “D” in her name stands for “dingbat“—women will be “den(ied) access to certain health care benefits based on their personal beliefs.” As we see in this guest commentary from Lauren Briggs, these claims are nothing but political hyperbole meant to reinforce the phony war on women meme the Democrats use whenever they don’t have…

Play It Where It Lies

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 satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from the group Judicial Watch, the “most transparent administration in history” has grudgingly coughed up a copy of an email from White House aide Ben Rhodes in which he pushed Susan Rice to go on the Sunday talk shows days after the terrorist attack in Benghazi…and blame everything on a ridiculous Internet video rather…
