The Dodd-Frank-Dinsdale Act of 2010

There’s a saying about politics and law making that if you’re not at the table you’re on the menu. In other words, if you’re a businessman and a big government liberal threatens your industry, cozy up to him to try to minimize the damage. The alternative is to take a principled stand and oppose the big government scheme for the bad policy it is. This is the dilemma bankers in Nebraska faced when confronting Dodd-Frank in 2010 according to articles from Nebraska Watch and American Banker. Guess which side Nebraska Senate primary candidate Sid Dinsdale fell on?  From Nebraska Watch May 12, 2014 5:23 AM PT

Obama's War on Workers

The Obama Administration wants to eliminate jobs and make more people dependent on the government.  There simply isn't any other way to put it.  They have turned their sites on for-profit, non-traditional colleges, like trade schools and continuing-ed programs for those who are seeking additional skills or training in a competitive job market.  From Derek Hunter at Townhall: May 8, 2014 12:20 PM PT

Shane Osborn is a Bad Friend

The World-Herald reported that television station KETV in Omaha declined to run a 60 Plus Association ad featuring retired service members who disapprove of Osborn because he created and circulated a fake memo. KETV refused to air the ad after a (likely empty) threat of lawsuit by the Osborn campaign.  Breitbart's Frances Martel has more on how this is playing out here. May 7, 2014 10:09 AM PT

S.E. Cupp Hits Bloomberg with Barrage of Facts, Gun-Control Advocates Freak

Like S.E. Cupp, I am also an NRA member and I couldn't be more proud of the way she's stood up for gun owners and the 2nd Amendment.  On ABC's This Week, she said "Mayors Against Illegal Guns has crumbled because [Bloomberg] duped mayors into thinking they were actually going to fight illegal guns.  And when they all found out actually they were going after law-abiding gun owners, they said, ‘that’s not what I want to be apart of.’ His efforts are duplicitous and they’re measurably failing."   Apr 23, 2014 8:46 AM PT

Romney Back in the Political Game

A few weeks ago I was at an event at my hair salon and I had the opportunity to talk to a local jewelry designer.  Like many Americans, she doesn't pay attention to politics every day.  She had recently seen the documentary "Mitt" on Netflix and expressed disappointment that she voted for Obama.  She said, "I remember seeing some news program and saying to my friend, 'He's just another rich a**hole.'  Now I think he was a good guy and could have kept us out of this Obamacare mess."

Red Eye Confessions

This week I was on Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld for the first time.  It's been a dream of mine ever since I watched it for the first time.  Red Eye is the reason I got DVR.  I have the Red Eye tribute to Andrew Breitbart that aired on March 2, 2013 in permanent DO NOT ERASE mode on my DVR.  I wrote a book for the express purpose of getting me on the show (Ok, that last one might not be totally true).

The Transparency Trap

Following plaintiff Shaun McCutcheon’s victory in the campaign finance reform case, several conservatives have hailed him as a hero. Certainly, he was on the right side of the issue of campaign donation limits, but like many he still doesn’t get the heart of the free speech issue and the current political climate.  Apr 11, 2014 4:59 AM PT

Yes, BuzzFeed, America is Great

Over the weekend I saw this video at BuzzFeed of "Facts That Will Restore Your Faith in America."  In the section titled "Progress," the video boasts that "Less than half of the population believes the U.S.A. is better than everyone.  Down 11% over the past decade." Apr 1, 2014 6:51 AM PT
