The Economist and New York Times Channel Fox Butterfield on Keynesian Policy

Back in 2010, I described the “Butterfield Effect,” which is a term used to mock clueless journalists for being blind to the real story. A former reporter for the New York Times, Fox Butterfield, became a bit of a laughingstock in the 1990s for publishing a series of articles addressing the supposed quandary of how crime […]

It worked for homosexuals so why not pedophiles?

In February, 2014 I wrote an article entitled “The ‘h’ in homosexual stands for hero or something.” It was a piece based on the now failed attempt by Michael Sam to become a member of the NFL by conveniently coming out of the closet just prior to the NFL draft, and the euphoria experienced by politicians and professional athletes due to his display of so-called bravery. Besides providing ample proof that the homosexual athlete’s attempt was nothing more than a publicity stunt intended to reinforce the political correctness of the homosexual agenda, I also documented how the movement was moving America to greater sexual deviancy, including polygamy and pedophilia (which was defended as an “orientation”). Of course, the PC Patrol called me a homophobic fear-monger. Sadly, as we learned in a recently released article in the Telegraph UK, it turns out that I was right. In a statement intended to imply that pedophiles are “born that way” (sound familiar?) we read: “Pedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males. At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.” This statement that pedophilia is natural and normal […]

Obama Cuba Embassy Move Will Cost Hillary Florida And The Election

Today, July 1, 2015, President Obama announced that the “Stars and Stripes” would fly in the oppressive dictatorship of Cuba, as he announced the opening of the US Embassy in Cuba.  The first thing I thought of when I heard that announcement from …

Our Weasel Of The Week!

Yes, once again, It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were all particularly slimy and despicable, but the votes are in and we have a unanimous winner…the envelope please…

Legal Surgeon, Amateur Legislator and Chief Justice John Roberts!

 The Noisy Room :Justice John Roberts for his judicial activism on King v. Burwell and the ultimate betrayal with his ruling in favor of Obamacare this week. The ruling stomped all over state’s rights and bent over backwards to reinterpret the Obamacare statute in favor of federal exchanges. “The somersaults of statutory interpretation they [the Justices of the Supreme Court] have performed …will be cited by litigants endlessly, to the confusion of honest jurisprudence,” concludes Justice Antonin Scalia in his dissent, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito. “And the cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.”

“So it rewrites the law to make tax credits available everywhere,” he dissents. “We should start calling this law SCOTUScare.” The Court’s interpretation is “absurd,” Justice Scalia opined. And right he is. Scalia is a brilliant legal mind and he is horrified by the Leftist turn of the court. This must tear his soul apart. This was simply a political power play and one has to wonder, as I have before, if Chief Roberts has skeletons in his closet that are being used to sway his opinion.
This partisan ruling will have wide-ranging, catastrophic ramifications for America. The majority opinion states that “The combination of no tax credits and an ineffective coverage requirement could well push a State’s individual insurance market into a death spiral.” And it inevitably will. Which in turn, will usher in single-payer healthcare. It’s coming.

“It is implausible that Congress meant the Act to operate in this manner,” Justice John Roberts writes for the majority. Really? Because it looks entirely plausible to me. In fact, choreographed.
Justice Scalia notes that these Justices are “presuppos[ing] the availability of tax credits on both federal and state Exchanges.” In layman terms, that means that federal tax credits that have already been given to millions of people must continue. Along with the tax credits will come higher premiums, crappier healthcare, death panels, higher deductibles and part-time employment as the national norm.

This is tyranny and what you are seeing here is the dissolution of the three branches of constitutional government we are based upon. We now have one executive behemoth branch that is drunk with power and careening out of control, right on schedule. Justice Roberts is a treasonous weasel, whose legacy will include the ending of our Republic as we have known it.

You know, this was an interesting week for Justice Roberts. One day, he’s rewriting ObamaCare for the second time, clearly disregarding what the law said and substituting what he thought the law ought to say.

A few days later he’s writing the minority opinion on same sex marriage, harshly criticizing the Court for – wait for it – legislating from the bench!

Those whom characterize Justice Roberts as lacking in testosterone have it all wrong. It takes real Weasel cojones to criticize the Court for doing what you did just a few days ago!

The truth of the matter is, like almost all Weasels, John Roberts looks out for Number One. There’s suspicion that the Obama regime has something on him, and given whom Barack Obama is and the amount of spying and data collection that’s been going on, that’s not at all and unreasonable scenario. Our it could be he’s being intimidated or bribed in some other way. But he’s not an idiot, and for him to make such a hypocritical switcheroo like that, the simplest and most obvious explanation is that he was told beforehand that his vote wasn’t needed to impose same sex marriage on America. That way, he could come out with a dissent that criticized exactly what he himself did in the ObamaCare ruling, to try and salvage some of his credibility as a PR move. It didn’t work of course, but weasels live by that old saying about dogs barking but the caravan moving on.

The damage he and his cohorts whom voted to judicially rewrite ObamaCare, redefine marriage and lay the ground for attacks on the First Amendment isn’t at all obvious to those cheering on the New Order, but that damage is severe and will last for some time. Roberts probably realizes it, at least intellectually. But the fact remains that on ObamaCare, he did what he did anyway. And I’m sure that had Justice Kennedy swung the other way and Roberts’ vote was needed to impose same sex marriage, Roberts would have voted that way.

In any event, he performed like a trained seal. He did what he was supposed to and after all, he has a lifetime appointment. And of course, a well-earned Golden Weasel.

Well, there it is.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

The Corrupt, Cronyist Export-Import Bank Was Not Re-Authorized, so Let’s Celebrate a (Hopefully Permanent) Victory over Corporate Welfare

Advocates of economic liberty, free market, and small government haven’t enjoyed many victories in the 21st Century. Government got bigger and more expensive during Bush’s reign, starting in his first year with the No Bureaucrat Left Behind legislation and then ending in his final year with the odious TARP bailout. Then Obama came to office, […]

Chris Christie seeks RINO nomination for president

We already have Lindsey Graham, Jeb Bush, and George Pataki representing the batch of East Coast RINOs looking to be the official loser of the GOP in 2016. Now we have the Fourth Horseman of the Republican Apocalypse seeking the nomination to be President of the United States. Offering himself as a sort of “Bridgegate” over politically troubled waters, Chris Christie made it official in a speech to a crowd gathered at the high school he once called home. Below are some of the statements he made, along with my comments: 1. “Americans are not angry, they are filled with anxiety.” Wrong! I’m angry about RINOs such as yourself who act more like Democrats in order to protect their jobs. I’m angry that RINOs such as yourself like to say one thing to get my vote, and then do the opposite once in office. Make no mistake about it: I’m not anxious, I’m ticked! 2. “Both parties have failed our country” by refusing to work together. “If Washington and Adams and Jefferson had believed compromise was a dirty word, we’d still be under the crown of England.” This is right, and wrong. He’s right about both parties failing the country, […]
