Union endorses Matt Salmon

Posted: August 7, 2012 at 3:00 pm   /   Arizona, Elections, Politics

The Republican primary in Congressional District 5 has become a nasty slog to the finish line.  Today it came out that a union – the Professional Firefighters of Arizona – endorsed only one GOP candidate for federal office.  That candidate was Matt Salmon. This endorsement likely stems from the fact that when in Congress previously, […]

Border officials: illegal immigrants using fraud to exploit Obama dreamer policy

Posted: July 27, 2012 at 12:15 pm   /   Politics, Videos

This, of course, was inevitable:   IN-EV-IT-A-BLE. It used to be that you had to take a risk coming to the United States illegally. You had to risk the desert, unscrupulous human traffickers, Border Patrol, drug cartels, and whatever alligators Tom Tancredo just happened to release into the Rio Grande. But now, now all you […]

Top-two primary will open the door for corruption

Posted: July 24, 2012 at 5:00 pm   /   Arizona, Elections, Politics

The latest fad among activists looking to transform our election process is the “top-two” primary.  States like Washington, Louisiana and California have already adopted the process which does away with separate primaries for each party. Instead, candidates from all parties are placed on the same ballot where the top two vote-getters, regardless of affiliation, move […]

James O’Keefe Pillories Union Bosses, Lobbyists, and Legislators with Another Sting

Posted: July 18, 2012 at 1:15 pm   /   Elections, Politics, Videos

Once again, James O’Keefe does the investigative journalism that the Democrat Media Complex (aka the mainstream media) fails to do. In this project, O’Keefe’s Project Veritas staff shows us how taxpayer money is handled by legislators, lobbyists, and union bosses.  As he did in his famous ACORN exposé, O’Keefe & company use a combination of […]

Bailing the Ship of State

Posted: July 14, 2012 at 11:30 am   /   Politics

Even though I write at least three articles a week, I find it impossible to stay abreast of the madcap antics of Barack Obama and his multitude of stooges.  At times, I feel like Mickey Mouse portraying the Sorcerer’s Apprentice in Walt Disney’s “Fantasia,” frantically trying to deal with all those deranged brooms. For instance, […]

The true story of the GM bailout

Posted: June 30, 2012 at 4:49 am   /   Politics

In the past, speaking out against unions was rendered, through assiduous propaganda efforts, rhetorically proximate to speaking out against decency and goodness itself. If you said a cross word about public unions, you were taking a stand against noble teachers and brave, handsome firemen. If you spoke up about private union abuses, you were against the […]

Is public education a failure?

Posted: June 23, 2012 at 2:00 pm   /   Politics

It certainly appears that spending money on it is:     “Despite hiring nearly 3 million more people and spending a resulting $210 billion more every year, achievement near the end of high school has stagnated in math and reading and actually declined slightly in science since 1970. […] [O]n a per pupil basis, a […]

Team Obama has warped view of history

Posted: June 16, 2012 at 8:30 am   /   Politics

A short post by James Pethokoukis in Ricochet yesterday really packs a punch in its few paragraphs. The title It’s Obama, Not Romney, Who’s Stuck in the 1950s hints at, but does not fully describe, the idea. Team Obama, like so many on the left, cite the period after WWII as an example of how high taxes […]
