Utah Sen. Mike Lee Scolds Conservatives at CPAC 2015: Beware of ‘Unserious’ Candidates

February 26, 2015 | Filed Under Congress, Conservatives, Elections, Ethics, GOP, Government, Government Corruption, Republicans, Senate, Utah, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Mike Lee is one of the few consistent conservatives in Congress, but he made a somewhat interesting choice for his subject at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). He scolded the audience against “unserious” Republican candidates.

To tepid applause, Lee warned his audience against the platitudes and talking points of candidates who are just throwing out red meat and urged them to reconsider the candidates in the light of serious policy ideas.

Why is this odd? Well, for one thing that is what many of the participants come for. They want the red meat, the platitudes and catchphrases. One thing that CPACers want is to see how dynamic the speakers can be. In many ways CPAC is a beauty pageant, one where attendees are looking for the candidate that can excite them.

Barack Obama Lies, Says Islam is Part of America’s Founding

-By Warner Todd Huston

Today President Barack Hussein Obama said that Islam is one of America’s founding religions, one that has been “woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.” This is an outrageous lie. Islam had no part at all in the founding of our nation. In fact, some of the founders spoke out against Islam and it was one of our country’s earliest military enemies.

Obama’s outright lie was uttered this week in a White House conference on “countering violent extremism.”

Here is what the liar in chief said on Wednesday…

“I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story,” Obama said in a June 2009 speech in Cairo, Egypt. “Islam has always been part of America,” he said in a 2010 statement marking the start of Ramadan. And in a 2014 statement marking Eid, Obama said the holiday “also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.”

This is outrageous. The founders were against Islam, not in favor of it. And not one tenet of the murderous “religion of peace” has found its way into American law or tradition.

Not only that, but one of our earliest experiences at war was against Muslims who were murdering people near the Barbary Coast.

More Troubles for Rep. Aaron Schock: Aide Resigns After ‘Racist’ Posting

Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock has not had a good week. First he was criticized over his office decor, and today he has had an aide resign over a “racist” posting on social media.

Schock was criticized for ethics violations after initially having his office decorated for free in a garish pseudo-Downton Abby style.

Before that controversy even died down, though, he’s found a troublesome aide that needed firing over some sort of racist remark on social media.

Obama AG Nominee Insists Illegals Have a ‘Right To Work’ In The USA

On Wednesday Obama’s Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch said that all illegals should be allowed to work in the USA despite the fact that they are breaking our immigration laws and are essentially criminals in this country.

Senator Jeff Sessions (R, AL), Chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, questioned Obama’s Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch at the Judiciary hearing to consider her nomination. Sessions asked Lynch about the President’s decision to bypass Congress to order an amnesty, and how this action undermined the rights of disadvantaged American workers.

“The president’s actions,” Sessions said, “would give people who came here unlawfully the right to work, the right to participate in Social Security and Medicare, when Congress has not done that. Allows them to stay for at least a period lawfully. Let me ask you this, in the workplace of American today when we have a high number of unemployed, we’ve had declining wages for many years, we have the lowest percentage of Americans working, who has more right to a job in this country, a lawful immigrant who’s here–a green card holder–or a citizen, or a person who entered the country unlawfully?”

In reply Lynch said that all illegals should be allowed to work in the USA despite our current employment and immigration laws.

Illegals Don’t Want to be Americans, So Keep Them Out

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of the things that the far left always says to excuse lawbreaking illegal immigrants is that they just want to be “like Americans” and attain the American dream just like immigrants to the US always have. This, however, is a lie. Many immigrants no longer have any desire to become Americans and just want our money so they can send it back home.

The old American dream was the promise that a “foreigner” could immigrant to the US, become a citizen, get a job, save their money, and make a life for them and more especially for their children.

For many of these people it was a special mark of pride to learn English and then learn enough about American history and its system of government to pass the citizenship test in order to become an official naturalized American.

This is what Democrats are invoking when they try to excuse lawbreaking illegals today. They claim that immigrants today are exactly the same as those of all our yesteryears.

But even the former president of Mexico is here to disabuse Democrats of this lie.

Illinois’ House Reps Have More Wealth Than Average Member of Their Electorate

(Here is my very first piece over at The Watchdog….)

-By Warner Todd Huston

A recent survey of the wealth of members of Congress revealed that, on average, it would take the combined wealth of 18 American households to equal the wealth of a single member of Congress. While this is an averaged statistic and individual cases vary, a review of the wealth of members of the Illinois delegation to Washington proves the rule rather than the exception.

The January report by OpenSecrets.org found that, “The median net worth of a member of Congress was $1,029,505 in 2013… compared with an average American household’s median net worth of $56,355.”

It is apropos to review what members of Congress are paid as they serve in Washington. Members of the House of Representatives are paid $174,000 a year, a salary that has been frozen in place since 2009. Speakers of the House and majority and minority leaders make a bit more than the average Congressman to befit their higher positions. Members of the House cannot collect a pension until they have served for five years, meaning they’d have to win election three times. Their pensions are never higher than 80 percent of their highest salary and is paid out at retirement age–unless they are still working somewhere in the federal government. In that case, they can’t collect a pension until they are no longer earning a federal salary.

So, what about Illinois? Well, the congressional salary itself certainly puts our representatives in a higher tax bracket than the average citizen of their state. According to information released by the U.S. Census, the median household income of the 13 million some citizens in Illinois is $56,777 annually. That is about 7 percent higher than the national average…

The Senate is Finally Getting Back to ‘Normal’ After the Disastrous Reign of Democrats, Harry Reid

Yes, we have some major problems with the Senate but there was a little good news coming out of the upper chamber this week. The new Senate Majority Leader, Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell, has gone back to allowing the minority party to begin the normal process of submitting amendments and actually voting on bills!

It may seem like a small thing, but when scumbag Harry Reid ran the Senate he made a mockery of our government by refusing to allow the normal rules to work the way they are supposed to.

Liar in Chief: Seconds After Obama Pleaded for ‘Bipartisanship’ in SOTU He Attacks GOP

President Obama couldn’t have proved his hypocrisy better at this year’s State of the Union speech than when he called for bipartisanship and reaching across the aisle but only seconds later slammed Republicans as working to take the vote away from people and taunting them with “I won.”

About halfway through his Santa Claus of the Union speech, President Obama once again loosed his tired claim that he is interested in the ideas Republicans have. He once again lied about how he is ready to leave partisan politics behind and is ready to reach across the aisle. This year he had a new catch phrase for it saying several times that we need “a better politics,” one where both parties work together.

But only seconds after he made that call he went on to claim that Republicans are trying to take the vote away from people, and taunted the GOP that “I won” two elections.

Obama’s hypocritical call for “A better politics” was something he described as, “one where we appeal to each other’s basic decency instead of our basest fears.”

Boehner’s Bartender Admits to Plot to Assassinate Him

-By Warner Todd Huston

On Tuesday it was revealed that late last year Prosecutors in Ohio filed charges against Speaker of the House John Boehner’s country club bartender for a scheme to assassinate the Republican leader.

Michael Hoyt, 44, who worked at Wetherington Golf & Country Club in West Chester, Ohio, was charged after admitting that he considered poisoning the Speaker’s drinks in a loosely planned assassination plot.

Hoyt said that voices in his head told him that Boehner was “evil” and that the Speaker was responsible for last year’s Ebola outbreak. He also felt that Boehner had mistreated him during visits to the club.

The crazy plot was discovered after Hoyt himself called authorities on October 29 saying that he was “Jesus Christ” and needed to kill the Speaker.

Clueless: Obama to Fight Against ‘Violent Extremism,’ Not Islamic Terror

Obama refuses to identify what we really face in radical Islam and his newest, time-wasting “summit” is yet another example of that. With his announcement the president said that his summit will explore ways to oppose “violent extremism” as if that “extremism” is divorced from Islam.

In fact, it’s worse than merely using a euphemism in place of “Islam.” In the announcement Obama’s surrogate Attorney General Eric Holder said he intends to find ways to fight “violent extremism around the world” as if there were various forms of “violent extremism” troubling the world when, in fact, it is only Islam that is troubling the world.

Holder clarified this further on ABC over the weekend saying that that the west needs to find “better ways to counter violent extremism.”

John Boehner Re-Elected House Speaker Despite Conservative Revolt

-By Warner Todd Huston

Well, folks, it’ll be business as usual in Washington DC with the re-election of Ohio’s establishment-pushing Congressman John Boehner to the Speaker’s chair.

To defeat Boehner conservatives needed 29 votes against him. And, while he did suffer rejection by 25 of his fellows, it wasn’t enough of a rejection for him to be replaced.

This is still a bit of a rebuke of the long standing Speaker, though. If he were a strong speaker that had the full support of his caucus he would not have lost 25 votes! This is a rebuke despite that it is likely that Boehner will carry on without taking any mind to the rebuke.

Still, don’t expect the GOP to actually realize that it won in a landslide in last November’s election. Expect the GOP to throw away its advantage and to bend over backwards for Obama offering only token resistance.

Sad to say, the GOP will stay Obama’s handmaiden with the re-election of weakling John Boehner to the Speaker’s chair.

So look for full support for amnesty and Obamacare coming from the House of Representatives.

Yet Another Bad Surprise for Obamacare Users: Their Year-End Taxes Will Soar

So, you thought the Lord God Obama had given you some “free” healthcare, did you? You’ve happily applied for and used his subsidies all last year because that clunky, constantly crashing Obamacare website said you could, eh? Well, guess what? Come April 15 you’ll probably owe a whopping new tax bill to the IRS because, as it turns out, you didn’t really deserve the subsidy you got. Sucks, doesn’t it?

The government reports that nearly 7 million Americans took advantage of the subsidies they were offered on the Obamacare exchange websites, subsidies that helped them cut down on the costs of the newly mandated Obamacare healthcare policies.

But now, according to tax preparation company H&R Block, as many as 4 million subsidy users might discover that in fact they made too much money to have been allowed to get the subsidy and at tax time the IRS will demand that they pay the money back.

I have been watching all this hullabaloo over whether or not Representative Steve Scalise (R, LA) is a closet white supremacist because he spoke one time to a group connected to notorious KKK member David Duke. Now, I am not a Scalise fan because he isn’t as conservative as I’d like, but in the end I have come down on his side. So, leave Steve Scalise alone, will you?

Scalise, the third in line of the GOP House leadership, got himself in trouble at the end of December when it got out in the media that back in 2002 he had given a speech to a gathering of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO). [Ed to add:or did he even do so?] While the name of the group sounds innocuous, the fact is the group was connected to white supremacist and notorious Klan member David Duke.

In fact, Duke himself joked that they created the name to sound innocuous on purpose so that they could mask their supremacist notions.

Boehner and GOP Allowed Obama to Add thousands of New Amnesty Workers With That 2015 Budget

This is why I despise government. Every decision made in DC adds thousands of new government placemen at a cost of millions in salary and an ever expanding government. That is what happened when John Boehner did not immediately put a stop to Obama’s amnesty plans in that recently concluded budget negotiations.

One of the things that Barack Obama kicked into high gear with his illicit amnesty announcement was a government employee hiring frenzy. As The New York Times reports, as soon as GOP House Speaker John Boehner allowed Obama’s amnesty plan to keep its funding, 1,000 new federal jobs were opened up at a cost to the taxpayer of $40 million annually in salaries and benefits.

These new employees will be housed in a building in the DC environs (Crystal City, just across the river in Arlington, Virginia) that will cost taxpayers an additional $8 million in rent each year.

Obama Insulting Legal Immigrants By Using Their Money to Give Amnesty to Illegals

-By Warner Todd Huston

President Obama has figured a way to fund his unconstitutional amnesty plans that not only hamstrings Congress to a great degree, but it also delivers a huge insult to anyone foolish enough to try to immigrate to the USA legally.

One of the ways that Obama tried to get around the possibility that Congress might not allocate funds in the budget for his new amnesty for illegals plans is to use the fee-based fund from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Since this money in the USCIS is not amassed from taxes, Obama thinks that Congress won’t be able to remove the funding. In this way he thinks that he can keep funding his unconstitutional plans without threat from Congress. Of course, Congress CAN take away the money for the operations of the USCIS, but that isn’t too likely.

But if it isn’t tax dollars, just who pays these fees? The money in this fund is paid as fees for government services–like filing paper work, etc–by immigrants who have legally come to the USA. That’s right, Obama is insulting legal immigrants by using THEIR money to fund his amnesty for illegals.

The new provisions designate an additional 250,000 acres of land to be property of the federal government. This is the biggest land grab since Obama’s last land grab in 2009.

The New Budget Bill: Still Funds Obamacare, Still Bans Abortion Spending, Still Bans Internet Taxes

The New nine-month budget bill called the CR/Omnibus spending bill is a $1.01 trillion spending bill that is over one thousand pages thick. But it takes care of spending for most of 2015 and one has to wonder why the Republicans pushed a spending bill that will prevent them from affecting spending for most of the entire first year they will be in control?

It is absurd that the GOP didn’t push a continuing resolution that only tides the government over for a few short months because next year the GOP will be in full control of both houses of Congress. Yet, the GOP was not just *sighing* and agreeing with this nine-month spending bill, GOP leadership was pushing it. This is a bill that will cut the GOP out from having any influence on spending for most of their first year they are in control.

Still, many of the hundreds of policy riders–little bits of instruction that affects spending–are good for the conservatives. Of course, some will upset Democrats and some Republicans.

Anyway, here are some of the riders of interest in the new budget bill (in no particular order):

Obamacare Fully Funded

The bill fully funds Obamacare, though it does put a limit to any growth in spending and cuts the budget by $10 million for the “death panel” board called the Independent Payment Advisory Board. It also does not give the IRS any new funding so that the taxing agency can implement the Affordable Care Act.

Clean Water Act

In a victory for farmers, the spending bill will prevent the EPA from taking upon itself the power to regulate farm ponds and ditch water. This is also a victory for Republicans–not to mention the country!

EPA Funding Cut

Speaking of the EPA, its budget was cut by $60 million over last year’s budget. The EPA will get $8.1 billion. This is another decrease. Since 2010 the agency has lost 21 percent of its budget.

No Pot Legalization for Washington DC

The City Council of the District of Columbia will be prohibited from legalizing marijuana and will be forced to hew to the federal ban on pot. On the other hand, federal drug enforcement agencies and law groups will be prevented from interfering in state-based pot industries.

A few days ago I noted that an American Indian got elected to the state legislature in Montana as a Republican. But the fact is, the 2014 GOP freshman field was more diverse than ever and many of those candidates won their elections. Minorities took seats as Republicans from coast to coast.

In Montana, G. Bruce Meyers, a member of the Chippewa-Cree Tribe and a Republican, took a seat in the State House and took it away from the Democrats who have held that seat for decades and decades.

But Meyers isn’t alone. A recent New York Times report notes that the GOP took control of 69 of the 99 statehouse chambers (both House and Senates) this year and many of these new and returning Republicans are minorities.

Dana Perino Wrongly Claims Obama ‘Has The Prosecutorial Discretion’ To Issue His Amnesty

One of the claims that the left is erroneously using to justify Obama’s new amnesty policy is that he has the “prosecutorial discretion” to do what he is doing and on Thursday Fox News’ Dana Perino agreed with the left that Obama does, indeed, have that power.

Perino appeared on the November 20 edition of Fox News’ The Five where she insisted that Obama does have the power to issue his amnesty. But she also noted that it was “strange” that the first major thing that Obama did after the elections was to “poison the well” with his amnesty policy even after he claimed that the midterms meant that voters want Democrats and Republicans to work together.

Perino went on to claim that Obama has neatly boxed in his Republican opponents because they will not be able to quickly settle the constitutional legality of Obama’s order nor will they be able to easily tell five million suddenly legal immigrants that they actually aren’t legal.

Where is Hillary on Obama’s Abuse of Power? The Five Times She Said Presidents Need Limits

-By Warner Todd Huston

Hillary Clinton has been pretty silent over Obama’s amnesty. She has not chastised this president for his abuse of power. But this might seem to be inconsistent with her past comments because there have been at least five times when she said that our presidents need to be reigned in and have their powers limited.

Clinton railed against an overly powerful executive at least five times in the recent past. In 2006, and twice each in 2007 and 2008 Hillary warned that the US needs to restore its system of checks and balances, a system lost to an over active Chief Executive.

In 2006, for instance, Hillary attacked George W. Bush claiming that he was making “the most extraordinary claims of executive power that we’ve seen in the nation’s history.” At that time Hillary praised our constitutional democracy and urged the nation to force Bush to back off and work better with Congress.

Only months later in 2007, Clinton was again railing against the President and saying that if she were elected to the White House she would roll back Bush’s use of Executive Orders. “I think you have to restore the checks and balances and the separation of powers, which means reining in the presidency,” Clinton said to The Boston Globe.

Kurtz tracked down the man, Rich Weinstein, and found a man who doesn’t himself want to become the story. In fact, he wouldn’t even supply Kurtz with a photo of himself.

Even in Blue Illinois the GOP Wave of 2014 Had an Impact, But The State is STILL A Major Failure

The Republicans bumped up their gains in the Senate and the House of Representatives and also gained in Governor’s mansions across the nation and even deep, deep blue Illinois was affected by this GOP wave. But even with these few bright spots, Illinois is the worst state in the union on every level.

But, yes, last night there were some bright spots. First of all, two Democrats lost their seats in the House of Representatives.

In the 10th District over in Lake County, Robert Dold re-took the seat he lost in 2012 when Democrat Brad Schneider knocked him out. Schneider rode Obama’s coat tails into the House in the big 2012 Democrat sweep.

Dold endured a vicious campaign full of lies launched by Schneider and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee. The Democrats claimed Dold was a “Tea Party” extremist and a major anti-abortion activist and neither are true.

But the shocker was the 12th District race where State Rep, Mike Bost just slammed Democrat incumbent Bill Enyart by a wide margin. I don’t think anyone had this major upset on their radar here in Illinois. Enyart only got one term and was ushered into office in 2012 along with the 10th District’s Schneider.

But the biggest upset is the race for Governor in the Land of Lincoln.

An interesting new TV ad campaign that targets the left-wing media instead of just a political party or candidate has begun in North Carolina as Election Day bears down upon the nation.

The TV spot is ostensibly an ad asking voters to defeat Democrat incumbent Senator Kay Hagan, but the main message is anti-Old media as opposed to strictly anti-Kay Hagan.

A similar ad is running in New Mexico and both are sponsored by a PAC named the Conservatism War Chest. The PAC’s spokesman, Mike Flynn, notes that conservatives can’t win until the media is defeated. (Disclosure: I’ve known Mike for years and have worked with him at Bretbart.com. But I’ve never discussed this effort with him.)

“Conservatives can never gain final victory until they confront the problem of news organizations who are the real opposition party in America,” Flynn said. “This content-heavy spot puts before the public case studies that establish these organizations as partisan not journalistic organizations that are dedicated to activism, not the fearless pursuit of the truth.”

Here is how the PAC explains its efforts:

UNPRECEDENTED: Obama Orders Insurance Industry to Withhold New Prices Until AFTER Midterm Elections

Barack Obama is again playing political games with our health insurance industry and has turned in another underhanded move against it by forcing insurance carriers, brokers and agents to withhold their 2015 prices until after the 2014 midterm elections are over all so that the news of higher prices won’t hurt Democrats on Election Day.

This means that customers looking to get new insurance or those wishing to scout new policies to see if they can get a better deal are not able to shop for insurance.

Before we get into that, though, millions of new cancellations will be hitting on January 1, 2015. Much of this news has gone under the radar as Democrats and their lapdog media are keeping this as quiet as possible.

There is also something different with these cancellations, something that has never happened before in the healthcare insurance industry. Past practice has always been that the next year’s new rates are released 60 days before the first day of the next year. But Obama has mandated that companies hold back on that normal practice so that he can shield Democrats at the polls.

Here is how insurance agent C. Steven Tucker explained it this weekend:

This year, for the first time in 20 years I can not even quote a replacement product because Barack Obama has issued a GAG ORDER to the health insurance industry instructing them not to disclose their January 2015 health insurance rates until after the mid-term elections. This is unprecedented. Normally health insurance premiums are released for public viewing 60 days before the January 1st effective date. Where are the reports on these cancellations and the gag order from NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN? The only news organization that I am aware of that has reported on any of this is the Fox News channel. I can guarantee you one thing, not one of my clients who received a cancellation notice is voting Democrat on Tuesday.

This is once again proof that healthcare is not about health for this most corrupt president in American history. It is politics all the way through for this man.

Your health doesn’t matter to Barack Obama. He cares only about what political benefit he can get from taking over our healthcare industry.

It is also proof that the health of Americans does not interest the news media, either. All they care about is how they can help Democrats.

But this is just a small example of what happens when you allow government to take over an industry like this. It stops being about what ever the industry is supposed to be about and becomes a mere political tool.

Finally, let us point out something else that is glaringly obvious. The GOP is in on this game. After all, you haven’t heard a word about this from any GOP candidate have you? They are clearly running interference for Obama on this by staying silent.

Obamacare Funds Being Used to Push Amnesty for Illegals

Obamacare was supposed to be about getting healthcare for those Americans–I emphasize, Americans–who fell through the system and were un-insured. But, like all government programs, it has failed to do what it set out to do. Worse, now we find healthcare dollars being used to push amnesty for illegals.

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) recently demanded to know why Obamacare money is going to a campaign to push amnesty. Smith wrote a letter to House Appropriations Chair Harold Rogers (R-KY) and demanded that the program be defunded.

Smith points to a $15 million grant hidden in Obamacare’s Prevention and Public Health Fund given to the California Endowment, a purported healthcare agency in the Golden State.

Congress Mulling Mandatory Isolation for Returning Ebola Doctors

October 28, 2014 | Filed Under Africa, Australia, Barack Obama, CDC, Congress, Democrats/Leftists, Ebola, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Health, Homeland Security, Liberals, President, Progressives, Security/Safety, Senate, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

After a doctor returning from treating patients in West Africa was diagnosed with the deadly Ebola virus, some in Congress are proposing that any healthcare worker returning from overseas after treating Ebola patients must be placed in isolation to make sure they are free of the disease.

Doctor Craig Spencer was diagnosed with Ebola upon returning to the US after taking care of Ebola patients in Guinea but when he first came home he was not exhibiting any symptoms. But only days after his return Spencer checked into Bellevue Hospital in New York and in short order was diagnosed with the virus.

The doctor is now in isolation and being treated for Ebola.

Before he began showing symptoms, Dr. Spencer was carrying on his life as normal, riding city mass transit, eating out, even going bowling. This is something that has alarmed lawmakers sparking a motion to make isolation mandatory.

USA Falls to 12th Place in World Economic Freedom

In the year 2000 the USA ranked second on the Economic Freedom of the World report. Now, in 2014, the USA has fallen to 12th place.

That’s right, the country founded on capitalism and economic freedom has been steadily losing ground among the most free nations as our system declines into welfare dependency, government sponsored crony capitalism (which isn’t capitalism at all but fascism), and big government, regulatory strangulation.

The CATO Institute puts out its annual report measuring the economic freedom of the nations of the world and this year the leader in global economic freedom is Hong Kong. The rest of the top ten are as follows: Singapore; New Zealand; Switzerland; Mauritius; United Arab Emirates; Canada; Australia; Jordan; and, tied for 10th is Chile and Finland.

And what of the United States?
