Phony In Chief: Barack Obama Caught Dissembling

In his phony-baloney speech from 2007, Barack Obama explicitly claimed that unlike those in New York City following 9/11 and unlike those in Florida following hurricane Andrew, the federal government wasn’t spending enough on the predominantly black victims of Hurricane Katrina because, as then-Senator Obama put it,”they don’t care about [you] as much.” But as…

Racist Barack Obama And His Phony Baloney Speech

If you can listen to his speech affectation without wincing in embarrassment, you’re a stronger person than I: Barack (“My-Grandmother-Is-A-Typical-White-Person”) Obama, a garden-variety racist who because he’s black has been given a pass on his devotion to Jeremiah Alvesta Wright.

George Orwell: On Politics, Writing, And Clarity Of Thought

Barack Obama Versus Barack Obama

In 2009, the so-called Individual Mandate was, according to Barack Obama (and I quote), “absolutely NOT a tax increase”.

What Is Independence?

Independence is autonomy. It’s the freedom to govern yourself and to rely upon your own independent judgment. Independence is freedom. But what, finally, is freedom? In its fundamental form, freedom really has only one meaning: it’s the omission of force. Freedom is the absence of compulsion. It simply means that you are left alone. The…

Ray Bradbury, RIP

“It was a pleasure to burn,” wrote Ray Bradbury in the beginning of Fahrenheit 451, and continued: It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed. With the brass nozzle in his fists, with this great python spitting its venomous kerosene upon the world, the blood pounded in his…

Obama Versus Obama: A Losing Battle

In his attempt to fully socialize American medicine, Barack Obama’s blatant and outright contradiction of himself — regarding, in particular, the Individual Mandate — damages him irreparably, in my opinion, and it’s long surprised me that this fact hasn’t been hammered home more completely. American Crossroads, however, has just released a video that captures pretty…
