Aren’t We Yet Tired of the Feds Being Totally Wrong – Or Lying to Us?

Gassy assertions by government officials are, of course, a given. Very few groups of people are more wrong, more consistently – yet with more confidence – than the people who lord over us.

Soviet Union 2.0 – The Environmental Protection Agency

Former President Richard Nixon is an ancestral RINO – Republican In Name Only. The wobbly GOP wing that insists on delivering us Diet Democrat policies. So it was in 1970 when President Nixon signed an executive order creating the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Get that? A unilateral fiat – how very pre-Barack Obama of him. […]

Flying under the free trade flag, many in DC are pushing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and fast-track Trade Promotion Authority (TPA). U.S. President Barack Obama Defends Trans-Pacific Partnership Speaker John Boehner: More Trade = More American Jobs (Senate Majority Leader Mitch) McConnell Urges Cooperation on Trade Legislation Is the TPP actually free trade?
