How rare it is that anyone should agree with Bill Press, but the lefty got it right when he declared, “I think Lawrence O’Donnell proved to be a real a-hole…” Truer words seldom spoken. Indeed, O’Donnell’s show the other day was quite instructive as to just how duplicitous this Hollywood hack really is. In the span of just a few segments, the liberal lapdog blasted religious conservatives for their intolerance by suggesting that our ‘rights come from God.’ He then sets up a straw man by using someone’s quote about Thomas Jefferson, a borderline Deist, to make his point–conveniently ignoring the most devout framers.

As President Obama said in the SOTU, “climate change is a fact.” Right, we used to call those seasons. But after all the dubious assertions coming form the global warming crowd (excuse me, if it’s now called ‘climate change,’ does that mean that the earth is NOT getting hotter?), more hurricanes–false, melting ice caps threatening the polar bear–false, Himalayan glaciers vanishing–false, it probably comes as no surprise that the climate models the environmental left (and their allies in the media) has been feeding us are slightly bent, eh? And so it goes.
Here’s a perfect example of what we’re up against and why we’ve created Galt.io. For decades, small government groups have been out-organized by the left at every level (see bold below). But now, with our social organizing network at Galt.io, we can finally compete on an even playing field with all those institutions of liberalism.
In fact, I saw a sneak preview of the actual Galt.io platform from our IT people last week and this thing is going to knock it out of the park. We’re still building out the network from your pledges, but in addition to being able to start your own local ’cause’ and attract supporters from your neighborhood, other possibilities include combining ’causes’ for a state or national issue; mapping, marketing, even cloning causes you like across this digital universe.

Well, if this is global warming, er, ah..climate change, I’d hate to see the flip side. The winter of 2014 continues to set records, which can be a bit of a problem for a ‘movement’ that asks you to believe so-called climate models or your own eyes. Doesn’t help that even the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reluctantly acknowledges that temperatures have flatlined over the past 15 years or so. Perhaps that’s why the environmental left is pointing to “extreme” weather as the consequence of the industrial age spoiling the earth with fossil fuels. Yet when has the weather NOT been extreme? And please tell us the ‘settled science’ behind carbon dioxide causing ‘extreme’ weather phenomena–and not just the greenhouse effect in a controlled lab. Continue reading
We’re glad to welcome new affiliates KNEW AM960 in San Francisco, CA and KZRG AM1310 in Joplin, MO to the Jason Lewis family. It’s great to be back in MO and exciting to be in the Bay Area. If you’re listening on these great stations, please let them know you appreciate a more engaging and independent brand (we usually don’t scream and hang up on folks) of talk radio. Off to a good start in 2014!
It is hard to say what’s more disturbing. The grotesque Democratic power play in ending the Senate filibuster, or the public’s complacency in going along with it. Either way, we are witness to the undoing of a sacred Senate tradition, which over the course of two centuries helped to separate the American experiment from mob rule.
Egged on by a lame-duck president whose second term legislative agenda is justifiably threatened by the legacy of the first, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid invoked the “nuclear option” last month, shamelessly allowing President Obama to retain his regulatory influence by ramming through executive branch appointments and judicial confirmations with a simple majority vote.

For its critics in the Republican party, Obamacare is the gift that keeps on giving — if only the GOP had a clue. The ill-fated government shutdown that brought favorability ratings for congressional Republicans to record lows and may have cost Ken Cuccinelli the governor’s race in Virginia seems indicative of a strategy that is void of anything except demonizing Barack Obama.
The Affordable Care Act was always going to collapse under its own liberal weight, so why try to save the Democrats from themselves by repealing the ACA’s most onerous provisions? In fact, the GOP should have never let any of the so-called waivers to the law stand right from the start. Continue reading
