Original Post: This Seems Like a Really Big Win.

I am so embarrassed. I didn’t even know that Fred Sauer, Gretchen Logue, and Anne Gassel were suing Missouri over Common Core. Did you know that? (I probably knew it and forgot. Sorry.) But here’s the thing: THEY WON!!!! Wait. YOU won. You won because Fred, Gretchen, and Anne stuck their necks out for you. […]

Original Post: The tangled web of net neutrality.

A friend asked my thoughts on net neutrality. I hemmed and hawed and told her a story she probably didn’t want to hear. The best I could come up with was: I don’t trust the FCC or the Obama Administration to do anything honest I don’t trust the Republican establishment to do anything right First, the Obama […]

Original Post: It’s Not Pro-Immigrant; It’s Anti-American.

Let’s be honest with ourselves: President Obama’s unilateral, dictatorial action on immigration is not to benefit illegals. It’s to punish American voters for rejecting him. This is personal. In two years, the next American president will let this and many other Obama executive orders expire. Executive orders are not law. They expire with the term…

Yesterday was the 227th birthday of the U.S. Constitution, but you wouldn’t know it was being rightly celebrated within the walls of the White House.

To commemorate the day, the White House tweeted out a photo of President Obama – as usual.

Using a photo or quote from the President is standard practice in the White House social media office –from statements  of remembrance to the anniversary of 9/11. It’s always about him – never the actual event or person being celebrated.

The same goes with his respect for the Constitution. His actions have consistently violated this sacred document, as he uses executive order after executive order to pass his own liberal agenda for the country.

As he famously said earlier this year, “We are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need…I’ve got a pen and a phone.”

There are multiple examples of when the President has done exactly that in the past six years – like when he waived work requirements in a Congressionally passed welfare program, and delayed implementation of Obamacare’s employer mandate for select companies.

The latest disregard of the Constitution? Obama plans to take executive action on immigration – a policy that should definitely include the input of a bipartisan Congress to move forward. With two years left in his Presidency, there’s no limit to what he might do in order to secure his legacy.

In fact, it makes the 2014 elections more important ever. We must elect strong conservatives that will truly respect the Constitution as it was written and call out Obama’s imperial actions.

Earlier this year, the White House ironically tweeted out another photo, this time with Obama photo-shopped onto the seat of a throne (paying tribute to the show “Game of Thrones.) The photo was a posted as a joke but its representative of Obama’s increasingly lonely decision making.

The Constitution was meant to help maintain a limited government. Perhaps it should be required reading for the President on this day.

Original Post: Michelle Obama’s Dictates Force Eureka High PTO To Beg.

When did first ladies become dictators? Seriously. The president’s family has no more authority than anyone else. The reason people show contempt for activist spouses of presidents is the same reason history hates Marie Antoinette. I know, the all-Democrat Congress passed the school nutrition law in 2010, but Michelle Obama wrote it. Michelle Obama has…

Original Post: How Ann Wagner Should Commit to Defunding Obamacare.

The House GOP leadership has a problem. The conservative base wants Boehner to use the continuing resolution to force a showdown over Obamacare. Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and millions of grassroots activists want the GOP to block passage of a continuing resolution because it funds the unpopular healthcare law. Boehner doesn’t want to.... Read more »
