Winter 2015 has become a combination of “Dr. Zhivago” and the scary scenes of “Frozen.” This has rendered champions of so-called global warming eerily quiet.
Right-to-Work legislation is sweeping the Midwest. It’s one of many reforms needed to makes states more competitive, reduce cost pressures on infrastructure projects, and hold down the necessity of tax hikes.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry took the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday to tackle a subject that has been the source of increasing alarm in the United States — national security.
More than half of the public employees in 13 states are union members, and government union membership rates exceed 25 percent in 27 states.
Labor unions work against employers — local, state and federal taxpayers, in the case of public employees. While slamming labor reforms as “anti-worker,” America’s four largest unions enrich themselves and their members at taxpayer expense.
For political reasons. You see, all the FCC has to do is redefine broadband at a higher speed, and now they can argue that America’s broadband networks are insufficient and thus require greater FCC intervention.
And it’s part of a pattern.
At a recent gathering however Mr. Biden was very serious. No smiles. He basically said that the government should start “emancipating” wealth. That is, taking wealth. (As if the government didn’t take far more than it should already.) This he argues, would somehow help the middle class. (Looks like someone finally made it through Thomas Piketty’s book.)
He’s wrong of course.
President Barack Obama’s government is inviting many repatriated illegal immigrants back to work in the United States under a deal approved approved this week by a federal judge.
For the third straight year, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., won the straw poll of attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC.
Apparently not satisfied with their effort to intimidate Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers, the left’s StopRush crusade is now allegedly targeting his spokesman. In their view, simply working for the talk host is apparently a crime, with an online and legal harassment campaign as punishment.
First, the president issues unlawful executive orders giving illegal immigrants amnesty. Then, he dares an equal branch of government to vote on his orders’ legality so he can veto it. Is he establishing a monarchy?
Israel appears to have chosen not to immediately respond to the Hezbollah attack. As a result, fears of an imminent escalation to full conflict between the Jewish state and the Lebanese Shia Islamists have diminished. But the silence is deceptive. The border incidents cast a sudden light on an ongoing war between Israel and Iran which is more usually played out in the shadows.
“Literally nothing in this Order will promote competition among ISPs. To the contrary, reclassifying broadband will drive competitors out of business. Monopoly rules designed for the monopoly era will inevitably move us in the direction of a monopoly. If you liked the Ma Bell monopoly in the 20th century, you’ll love Pa Broadband in the 21st.”
When I took office as governor of Wisconsin in 2011, I called together our new Republican majority in the legislature and told them it was time to “put up or shut up.” As the elected leaders of our state, we owed it to our fellow Wisconsinites to follow through with our promises and to tackle the big issues head on.
Our first order of business was reclaiming power for the people of our state. For too long, the big government union bosses had called the shots in our state capital.
Phil Robertson, patriarch of the popular show “Duck Dynasty,” delivered a one-of-a-kind speech to a crowd of conservatives after winning a free speech award at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Robertson’s unique analogies and storytelling sparked some colorful Twitter banter for those following the event.
The IRS scandal is still very much on-going. We’ve all seen the abuse and fraud the agency has been engaged in to protect liberals and deny conservatives their Constitutional rights to participate in the process of government. Despite promises that the problems have now been fixed since Lois Lerner was dumped, the facts tell a very different story.
Fans of Rick Santorum will enjoy his speech at CPAC, which included a few references that were designed to rankle liberals, and it worked!
A top Texas law enforcement agency says it has apprehended several members of known Islamist terrorist organizations crossing the southern border in recent years, and while a surge of officers to the border has slowed the flow of drugs and undocumented immigrants, it’s costing the state tens of millions of dollars.
