Obama: The ‘Pay More at the Pump’ President

Obama: The ‘Pay More at the Pump’ President

American Solutions is re-launching Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less for one big reason:  President Obama’s continuing war on American energy is dramatically increasing the price of gas and diesel. To be fair, President Obama is in favor of drilling…but just not in the United States. His numerous bans, restrictions, and proposed taxes are hamstringing America’s ability […] Read more Complete Obama: The ‘Pay More at the Pump’ President … Read entire article »

Bobby Jindal Hits the Airwaves! . . . In His Reelection Bid.

Bobby Jindal is running! . . . Er, for reelection as governor. He has a new ad hitting airwaves: The ad, a transcript of which was released by the campaign Wednesday morning, will feature Jindal discussing the state's economy and his opposition to tax increases — essentially a truncated version of his stump speech. "Our economy has certainly done better than the region and the country's economy but we are impacted by this national recession," Jindal says. "We can't get complacent, we can't be satisfied with the progress we've made." (As soon as I can find the video, I will post it. It's not on his campaign's website yet.) With roughly $9 million in campaign funds and no declared opponent, Jindal's reelection chances look pretty healthy. … Read entire article »

This Day in Liberal Judicial Activism—March 18

 1963— As Seth Stern and Stephen Wermiel write in Justice Brennan, this day stands out among all others as the day when Justice Brennan’s “new majority”—resulting from Arthur Goldberg’s replacement of Felix Frankfurter—“flexed its muscles”: “The liberal bloc overturned four of the Court’s long-standing precedents” on a single day. In Fay v. Noia and Townsend v. Sain, in (as Justice Harlan puts it in his dissent in Fay) a “square rejection of long-accepted principles governing the nature and scope of the Great Writ,” the Court dramatically expands the federal habeas corpus rights of state prisoners. In Gideon v. Wainwright, the Court, overruling its 1942 decision in Betts v. Brady, holds that the Constitution requires that states provide counsel for indigent defendants in all criminal trials. And in Gray v. Sanders, the … Read entire article »

This Day in Liberal Judicial Activism—March 19

 1957—President Eisenhower’s nomination of William J. Brennan, Jr. to serve on the Supreme Court is confirmed by the Senate. Brennan, a former New Jersey supreme court justice, is already serving on the Court by virtue of Eisenhower’s October 1956 recess appointment of him. Eisenhower’s selection of Brennan—which Eisenhower later identifies as one of his two biggest mistakes as president (see This Day item for March 1, 1954)—is said to have resulted from a recommendation by his campaign advisers that an appointment of a Catholic Democrat from the Northeast would attract critical voters. So much for basing Supreme Court selections on short-term political calculations. In retrospect, that recommendation appears to have been as unnecessary as it was foolish: Eisenhower wins re-election over Adlai Stevenson by a huge margin, 57%-42% in the … Read entire article »

Obama the Appeaser

During President Obama’s first two years in office, we have seen him do nothing but fumble on the world stage.  He often seems to sit back and watch major changes occur – making no effort to be a part of the solution or reassert America’s position in the state of world affairs. Bruce Thornton, a professor […] Read more CompleteObama the Appeaser … Read entire article »

California Gold?

I remember when I first bought my truck. I am not lying when I tell you that I love my Dodge diesel dually. But back then money was tight, and I would be lying if I said the monthly payments weren’t concerning. I figured that since diesel fuel was cheaper than gas and the truck would get […] Read more CompleteCalifornia Gold? … Read entire article »
