Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution ascribes to Congress the sole “Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises” on the American people. Somebody at the Internal Revenue Service didn’t get the memo.
Ted Cruz is a rising star in the Republican Party thanks to his tough stands for liberty and against big government and the status quo. Evidence of his rise and threat to the establishment comes in the fact that CNN now thinks it’s time to give scrutiny to the albatross hanging around Cruz’s neck: his eligibility to run for President.
The President’s healthcare overhaul is not just scary for reasons related to its roots in establishment medicine. It is also fraught with little nuggets showing that the whole system as designed is a huge fiasco. And it probably is the biggest fraud perpetrated on the American people since Social Security.
Hope that a bill granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens would die in the House is fading fast. According to Senator Chuck Schumer, the House GOP fascists’ plan to approach immigration reform through piecemeal legislation is acceptable.
Senator Rand Paul wants to be President. While he has not explicitly said so, his recent posturing and pronouncements make this a reasonable assumption. His problem is the Republican establishment hates his father, Ron Paul, and him by extension. They’re showing him no love.

Yet when al-Qaida rose up to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi in Libya, U.S. and NATO assets covered for them and supplied them with arms. And when al-Qaida rose up to overthrow Bashar Assad in Syria, Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for them.
Senator Mike Lee (R.-Utah) is trying to drum up support for an effort to defund Obamacare in the continuing resolution to fund government that will be debated this fall. Unfortunately, cowardly and/or big-government-loving CINO (conservative in name only) Republicans are, as usual, siding with Democrats and corporatists and saying it’s a fool’s errand.
Full-time employment in America is going away, thanks to Obamacare. The trend extends all the way to people tasked with signing people up for Obamacare. Oh irony of ironies.
Marty the Magician performs magic shows for children. For his big finale he pulls a rabbit out of a hat. In 2005, a USDA inspector cornered him after a show. She asked to see his license. “License for?” the magician asked. “The rabbit,” was the reply. His adventure with USDA insanity had begun.
George Zimmerman demonstrated why he was watching out for his community as a neighborhood watch volunteer on the night that Trayvon Martin was shot. He cares about his community. Last Friday, he demonstrated it again.
