Peggy Joseph 2014

Remember Peggy Joseph? Sure you do. [ The YouTube ] Well, she’s using different words now. [ The YouTube ] Tip: The Other McCain The question is not who “will she vote for in 2016?”, it’s “who will she vote for in 2014?” I didn’t mind making fun of her in 2008, or in the years since. But she seems to be wising up. So, maybe there’s hope — real hope — after all. But, if I stop making fun of Peggy Joseph, that doesn’t mean I’ll stop making fun…

Media lapdog of the day: Purple Heart, Bronze Star recipient’s story sure is a lot like Obama’s

Media lapdog of the day: Purple Heart, Bronze Star recipient’s story sure is a lot like Obama’s

**Written by Doug Powers During the State of the Union address, Army Ranger Cory Remsburg received the longest ovation of evening, and deservedly so : I first met Cory Remsburg, a proud Army Ranger, at Omaha Beach on the 65th anniversary of D-Day. Along with some of his fellow Rangers, he walked me through the program – a strong, impressive young man, with an easy manner, sharp as a tack. We joked around, and took pictures, and I told him to stay in touch. A few months later, on his tenth deployment, Cory was nearly killed by a massive roadside bomb in Afghanistan. His comrades found him in…

Michelle Obama: Can you spare at least $10 to help protect Obamacare?

**Written by Doug Powers The Dems sent out a fundraising letter yesterday. In it, Michelle Obama asked for at least $10 to “help protect Obamacare.” This is like raising money to protect icebergs from ships: Earlier this month, because of what you did, it became illegal for insurance companies to discriminate against the up to 129 million Americans living with pre-existing conditions. Young Americans are able to stay on their parents’ health care plans as they get on their feet, and we can now know that our insurance companies won’t put lifetime caps on our coverage. You should be so proud of that. That happened because…

The latest news, via TOLO News : The US government has condemned an ordered release of the first wave of 88 prisoners from Bagram prison, saying that more than 40 per cent of the prisoners who are set to go were involved in direct attacks against the US and Afghan forces.

Granholm vs. Granholm: Super PACs apparently no longer a threat to our ‘democracy’

Granholm vs. Granholm: Super PACs apparently no longer a threat to our ‘democracy’

**Written by Doug Powers In 2012, former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm blasted the Supreme Court’s decision on the “Citizens United” case: My experiences all took place before Citizens United. I can’t even imagine how much worse the pressures are now. That case has corrupted our political system, so our politics is no longer about doing the will of the people, it’s about raising the money from some of the people. There just isn’t time to do anything else. You can see why so many good men and women are no longer willing to serve in elected office. This isn’t a partisan issue — this is…

**Written by Doug Powers Finally we’re getting somewhere. They’re still going to lie to us, but at least we’ll get a snack out of the deal. Wait, no we won’t. It’s just “virtual” cheese : The White House will host a virtual “Big Block of Cheese Day” later this month in a nod to historical tradition — and the popular West Wing television show. In the show, White House staffers were required on one day a year to meet with citizens and interest groups who normally…

Chuck Schumer must not have heard last year’s news; Says IRS needs to curtail Tea Party groups

**Written by Doug Powers Count Chuck Schumer among those who aren’t even pretending that we have a Constitution anymore, though it doesn’t seem he’s been paying very close attention to the news: Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) proposed using the Internal Revenue Service to curtail Tea Party group funding during a speech on how to “exploit” and “weaken” the movement at the Center…
