BREAKING NEWS: Federal Judge rules Obamacare Mandate UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!

26 states followed Virginia’s lead and in an entirely different court received the same outcome as Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s case in the Commonwealth.

Judge says whole bill must be tossed out because there is no severability clause, which is different than how Judge Hudson in Virginia ruled. Amateurish Democrats forgot the severability boilerplate, which basically says that if any part of a piece of legislation is found unconstitutional, all of the remainder of the bill remains in effect.

Of course, candidate Obama warned us that the individual mandate was punitive to the poor and leaves them in worse shape than they were without it.

He also admitted that mandates don’t solve the problem.

He was against it before he was for it, you see.

Democrats remain incalcitrant

They just dumped a $1,100,000,000,000 omnibus spending bill of nearly 2,000 pages on the floor and are insisting on a vote within 72 hours. 

Add to that the nearly $1,000,000,000,000 in the so-called Bush Tax Rate extension.

$2 TRILLION in new spending in a little over a week.

It’s as if November 2nd never happened.

Jim Webb: Conscience of a Conformist

Jim Webb campaigned as a war hero and his own man, impervious to pressure from special interests and demands from the political machine.  Although I honor his military service and bravery, much like John McCain, heroic service during war time does not necessarily translate to heroic service in politics.

In spite of the very clear message from his constituents that they wanted no part of TARP, Stimulii, Bailouts, SCHIP, the confirmation of Eric Holder, Cash for Clunkers, Spending Freeze, School vouchers and Obamacare, Webb always surrendered his professed convictions and voted with this guy every single time on the major issues.

Birds of a Feather

But post-election Webb is seeing the handwriting on the wall and he’s doubling back, asserting that he quietly warned leadership that they were treading on thin ice with voters.

“I’ve been warning them,” Webb says, sighing, resting his chin on his hand. “I’ve been having discussions with our leadership ever since I’ve been up here. I decided to run as a Democrat because I happen to strongly believe in Jacksonian democracy. There needs to be one party that very clearly represents the interests of working people … I’m very concerned about the transactional nature of the Democratic Party. Its evolved too strongly into interest groups rather than representing working people, including small business people.”

I recall going to the Code Red Rally against Obamacare at the Senate on Dec. 15th of last year to meet with Webb’s Chief of Staff.  There were 20-30 of us in the hallway in front of his office waiting for our audience, when along ambles Jim Webb reading a document.  When he got about 50 feet away he glanced up, saw us there and did a quick exit into the nearest door.  The courageous Senator wanted no part of facing his constituents then and meekly joined his Party to vote in favor of Obamacare on Christmas Eve.

The time for hiding is over as the 2012 campaign started a week ago tomorrow.  It will do you no good to tell the voters that you were warning your leadership.  That was the time to show the courage of your convictions.  Either you don’t have any or you simply failed.

Update from Pajamas Media:

Senator Jim Webb (D-VA), a former Republican, rode a Democratic wave to a narrow victory in 2006, but PPP found Webb trailing former Senator George Allen (R-VA) in a rematch.

This sounds like a set up by the Democrat leaning PPP.  They’d love nothing more than to dance the Macaca again.  Sorry, but George Allen is my last choice to run against Webb.

 

Election Post Mortem: Brave Sir Robin Edition

First the cheap shot:

When Danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled. 

See you in a couple of weeks, Mr. President.  Thank you for spending $2,000,000 a large and unknown amount per day for two weeks while the country languishes in a recession that is probably better characterized as a depression.  I know this trip was planned well before the election, but it certainly looks bad from an optics standpoint.

But, on another matter, somewhat underreported in the post election analyses are the gigantic gains made by Republicans at the State level.  Not only did they pick up an historic 680 seats, but they gained the upper hand in 14 states.

This definitely gives Republicans the advantage in a redistricting year, which probably makes it even more difficult for Democrats to rebound.

Republicans now hold the redistricting “trifecta” — both chambers of the state legislature and the governorship — in 15 states. They also control the Nebraska governorship and the unicameral legislature, taking the number up to 16. And in North Carolina — probably the state most gerrymandered to benefit Democrats — Republicans hold both chambers of the state legislature and the Democratic governor does not have veto power over redistricting proposals.

The situation in Texas is probably the most dramatic.

The real shock occurred in the Texas House, where Republicans won a whopping 99 seats out of 150.  The previous record was 88 seats, and the Republicans had actually lost seats over the previous two cycles.  No one expected the GOP to get back to 88, much less pass it.  But 2010 not only reversed the trend, it crushed it into a fine powder: There are now almost two Republicans for every Democrat in the state House.  What all of this adds up to is conservative governance unleashed.

The damage that Democrats have done to their brand cannot be overstated.

 

Orwell’s ‘Two Minutes Hate’ unleashed against Americans for Prosperity. Twice.

The people in this video are completely unhinged, throwing the race card and throwing signs.  Thanks to our ‘post racial’ President, the long national suffering over race relations has been ESCALATED to an extremely unhealthy level.  Here’s another episode launched by Perriello supporters in Charlottesville.

This is definitely not safe for family viewing.  Both Perriello supporters hurl incessant and repeated F-Bombs. 

Like you’re surprised.

Americans for Prosperity gathered to greet President Obama with their usual ‘Cut Spending’ and ‘Socialism isn’t Cool’ signs as noted by both Sampson and McMartin earlier. 

Bearing Drift has the details on this unprovoked ugliness.

Exit question:  Tom Perriello has been running misleading advertisements ALL DAY LONG on television while I have watched football without a response from his challenger, Robert Hurt.

Dude?  What are you waiting for?  I’m simply horrified.

Socialism is Cool – Perriello Supporters Told Us So!

I would call them useful idiots. Are they so totally detached from reality that they don’t understand the consequences of favoring such rule?

Are they so ignorant that they refuse to see that Socialism but is just a stepping-stone to Communism?

Let’s name a few perpetrators shall we? Marx, Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Chavez, Guevara, Engels, Stalin, Castro, Kim Jong Il. I wish Ben had asked these people to explain how Socialism was cool under these monsters.

“The only important difference between Nazi-ism, Fascism, Communism, Socialism, Progressivism, and Liberalism is the spelling; and that the last group hasn’t got the brains to figure it out.” – Bill Vance 

“The problem with socialism is that sooner or later, you run out of other people’s money.” Margaret Thatcher
Pathetic, but more proof that American Universities are bastions of liberal progressivsm who have lost all sense of reasonable discourse.
 

Battle for Alaska: Men in Black Edition

Yesterday an Alaskan Superior Court Judge dealt incumbent Senator Leeza MooKowSkee a severe blow by not allowing election officials the ability to provide voters with information on the write-in candidates.

Fast forward to today and that ruling was overruled by the Alaska Supreme Court while you slept.

Is the Alaska Division of Elections acting as advocates for the Senator?

The high court ruled quickly after attorneys for the state Division of Elections petitioned for a review of a ruling issued earlier Wednesday by Anchorage Superior Court Judge Frank A. Pfiffner.

We’re 5 days before the election and lots of very dubious events are happening not just in Alaska, but because of Court rulings in Arizona on voter ID requirements, Harry Reid’s son and the SEIU seem to be conspiring to steal the election in Nevada, strange ballot episodes in North Carolina and other peculiarities are occurring.

 

Video: PJTV takes on the “Big Green” environmental movement

Did you know that just one major “green” group, the National Resources Defense Council, has a budget that dwarfs those of the American Enterprise Institute, the Competitive Enterprise Institute and the Heritage Foundation – combined?  That fact and a whole lot else are in this video, which is the first of what looks like a promising series from PJTV.  Watch it, link it, share it.

Reagan takes on today’s Democrats

The Gipper stars in this new video, released by the Republican Study Committee.  It’s as powerful as it is chilling, to hear Ronald Reagan’s predictions about government, and then see today’s Democrats fulfill those prophecies.

Today’s Democrats are led by a woman who said we needed to pass a massive health care takeover bill in order to find out what’s in it.  Well, today’s Democrats are also led by a man who is evidently corrupting the Food & Drug Administration for the sake of “bending the cost curve” to make Obamacare somewhere near fiscally feasible.  That’s something he said he would never do – he even promised that if you like your health care/doctor/you name it, you could keep it.  We’re finding out what’s in the bill – death for those who suffer, and the end of free choice for everyone else.  Oh, and higher taxes and probably national bankruptcy if we stay on the path we’re on.

Today’s Democrats…sensitivity to Islamists at the expense of Americans, a lawsuit against a state that’s trying to enforce border security, and race bombs being thrown all about for fun and political profit.

“The President Stands With Sharia”

Chilling.  But unarguably true.
