White House Threatens Bob Woodward: “You’ll Regret This”

bob woodward

Bob Woodward, the famous journalist behind the Nixon “Deepthroat” scandal decades ago, has been on the warpath, but this time, Obama is the one who is the target. Woodward is known for having intricate access to key political figures. Unfortunately, he apparently hasn’t been drinking the Kool-Aid, leading him to be despised by would-be dictators in DC. His book “Obama’s Wars” revealed intricate details about the president’s conflicted, muddled response to the wars in such alarming detail that Osama bin

The Real Unemployment Rate is Worse Than Reported

There are lies, big lies, and then there are statistics. Perhaps worst of all, there are government statistics. Trusting the government to be honest about the economy is like trusting the fox to be honest about guarding the hen house — it’s a recipe for eventual disaster. When Obama took office, the unemployment rate was 7.8%. When Obama took his oath the second time, it was 7.8%… still. So did we have roughly the same labor market during both times?

Stop Hating the Rich

I’m tired of hearing people talk about how the rich game the system and take all of our money. Certainly, corporate welfare and cronyism play a part of the present injustices in society. It’s evil and it has to stop. But this general hatred of the rich and of their wealth absolutely has to go. I keep hearing people complain that the rich have gamed the system and taken everything from us. They are out to get the middle class,

Report: People Abusing Welfare, Getting 7k in Food Stamps

ebt card

One of the most mind-boggling problems in America is the outright denial so many statists have about welfare abuse. I personally know people who are gaming the system in order to get as much as possible while working at little as possible. Talk to anyone who works at a grocery store, and you’ll hear horror stories. This isn’t just theoretical. It’s very real abuse that is being encouraged by people who gain political power the more people are on welfare

Rand Paul: Obama’s Scare Tactics “Untrue, Unfair, Dishonest”

Most of the news is currently drenched with protests to “drastic” cuts to the government. Some are calling it suicide. So how bad are the cuts? Only 3% of projected increases… spending will never actually go down. Rand Paul has some strong words for Obama, as everyone should watch in the video below. Here’s a short quote from the more pertinent part: “It’s untrue, unfair, dishonest, disingenuous. The president is making stuff up… Our country is drowning in a sea

Viral Video: Piers Morgan Destroyed By Two Pro-Gun Women

Piers Morgan seems to enjoy debating gun control even though he’s made it abundantly clear he doesn’t know anything about the topic. He’s been destroyed by everyone from Larry Pratt from the Gun Owners of America to Ted Nugent. Morgan apparently can’t get enough. In the video below, Morgan tries to debate with two women, and ends up having his position destroyed — he gets so frustrated at the end, he throws paper at one of his guests. Sorry, no

The Feds Are Disarming Some Veterans Without Explanation

The following has been written by¬†Michael Connelly, J.D., the Executive Director of the United States Justice Foundation. Below, he explains how the VA is threatening some veterans with prison if they purchase guns or ammunition — without explaining what the reasoning is, or by what authority they have this “power”.¬† How would you feel if you received a letter from the U.S. Government informing you that because of a physical or mental condition that the government says you have it

Rand Paul’s Office Gives $600,000 BACK to the Government

rand paul

Rand Paul only has full control over one part of the federal government… the money they give him to run his senate office. And he just announced that he’s giving over $600,000 BACK to the federal treasury with money he saved this last year alone. This means he’s not just talking big — he’s taking big actions even on a personal level. If you want to see an example of someone who knows that to save money you have to

Nancy Pelosi Says Cutting Her Pay Violates Her “Dignity”

pelosi

Nancy Pelosi is the embodiment of almost everything wrong with statism. Economically ignorant, resentful, elitist, and completely clueless on every level. There are a lot of reasons why central economic planning doesn’t work, and she’s up there on the list. She also thinks that even talking about cutting her pay — while millions of Americans are unemployed — is out of the question. Why it’s not just out of the question… it’s actually a violation of her “dignity”. That’s right,

Full Text: Rand Paul’s Response to the State of the Union

rand paul

As we announced two days ago, Rand Paul gave his own response to Obama’s State of the Union address, in addition to the GOP’s official address with Marco Rubio. This means that Rand Paul is starting to challenge the establishment of both parties, though he is generally seen as an ally of Rubio. A lot of people are speculating that Rubio and Rand are considering a ticket together to run in 2016. Only time can tell, though it would likely
