EPA: Environmental Protection Agency or Extremist Political Agenda?

August 4, 2014

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,…

Supreme Court to EPA: Congress writes laws, you don’t!

July 14, 2014

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…

Conservative Comedy 5/2/14

May 2, 2014
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…

Chuck Schumer wants to kill free speech, but he’s not alone

May 1, 2014

The Democrats have now suffered two consecutive free speech defeats before the Supreme Court. In both cases, liberals wanted to control the money individuals (McCutcheon vs. FEC) and corporations (Citizens United vs. FEC) could contribute to political campaigns; and as we all know, nothing upsets a Democrat more than too much money for an election—unless it’s coming from George Soros. You would think that politicians on both sides of the aisle would embrace the court’s commitment to protect the Constitution, but you would be wrong. Senate Democrats plan to vote this year on a constitutional amendment sponsored by Sen. Tom Udall…
