Time for House to Repeal Obamacare Individual Mandate

 

Senators just passed tax reform legislation that included a repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate. The House of Representatives, which passed its version of tax reform without such a repeal, should now follow the Senate’s lead.

Is Kathy Griffin Insane?

 

After watching Kathy Griffin’s latest YouTube video, I have to wonder if she is certifiable. Back in May she sent her career into a nosedive after posing for a photo holding up the fake, decapitated head of President Donald Trump. In an attempt to save said career, she held a press conference that quickly turned into a pathetic rant. […]

It Is Time To Abandon Roy Moore

 

It is time for conservatives to abandon Roy Moore. Running for the Alabama U.S. Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Moore has now been accused by a second and third woman of sexual assault. It is noteworthy that those accusing Moore aren’t hiding behind anonymity: they are named, on-the-record sources. On Monday, Beverly […]

Poor Kathy Griffin!

 

When last we saw her, Donald Trump had broken her after she held up a prop that looked like Trump’s decapitated head. It was just a misunderstood publicity stunt that everyone blew out of proportion. Poor Ms. Griffin had to apologize for it, but a lot of mean people wouldn’t forgive her and her wonderful […]

If You Pull It Out, You Are a Lout

 

(language warning) Last week comedian Louis C.K. was set to release a new movie titled I Love You, Daddy about a 17-year-old girl who has an affair with a much older movie director. As I noted, this was a case of some really bad timing. Little did we know. It turns out masturbation is seemingly always on C.K.’s mind […]

Louis C.K. Directs Movie About Harvey Weinstein (or is it Roman Polanski?)

 

One of the great questions of 2017 will be why comedian Louis C.K. didn’t put a hold on the upcoming movie that he directs and stars in, by, say, releasing it a year from now. Louis C.K. plays a middle-aged father in I Love You, Daddy. Chloë Grace Moretz plays his 17-year-old daughter, and John Malkovich […]

Northam promised “he would sign a bill to ban so-called sanctuary cities if a Virginia locality tries to become one in the future,” according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. A sanctuary city is one that does not cooperate with […]

2006: When Jeff Flake Was Tea Party Before There Was a Tea Party

 

There are multiple definitions of Potomac Fever, but for conservatives it means a politician who has abandoned his beliefs in free markets and limited government in exchange for being liked by his colleagues, receiving praise from the New York Times and Washington Post, and believing that he really is as great as all of his staffers say he […]

Single-Payer Health Care Kills

 

Britain’s National Health Service, held up as the gold standard by leftistseverywhere, announced just last week that it will “ban patients from surgery indefinitely unless they lose weight or quit smoking.” According to the Telegraph: In recent years, a number of areas have introduced delays for such patients—with some told operations will be put back for months, during which time […]
