The Halbig and King Decisions Highlight the FUBAR that is Obamacare

Yesterday, a The US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit issued a ruling in the case of Halbig v. Burwell.  The plaintiff, Jacqueline Halbig, was the senior policy adviser to the Department of Health and Human Services under President George W. Bush.  In her lawsuit, Halbig contended that under the Patient Protection and Affordable […]


No, It is NOT the ‘July Fourth’ Holiday, and Stop Saying It Is!

It is well known that John Adams had imagined that July second would be the day that future generations of Americans would remember as their day of independence from England, the nation’s birthday, if you will. It was, after all, on the second that it was proclaimed “(T)hat these United Colonies are, and of right […]


For the children?

States along the US-Mexico border are now dealing with a very serious and heartbreaking situation – tens of thousands of children crossing the border illegally.  Some travel with their mothers, but many are traveling alone.  The situation is turning into a humanitarian crisis as US authorities struggle to find places to feed and house them.

Veterans committing suicide during VA treatment delays

Dr. Margaret Moxness, a psychiatrist employed by the VA in West Virginia, has told Fox News that at least two of her patients committed suicide during months-long waits between psychiatric appointments: “I was in a very tight-knit community,” Moxness said. “There was lots of extracurricular support: family, faith, vet centers. So we had help, but […]


Middle School Cancels ‘Honors’ Night Because it Hurts Feeeeelings

A middle school in Rhode Island had canceled its night meant to honor students who achieved excellent grades because officials felt that the annual honors ceremony would hurt the self esteem of those more stupid kids who didn’t get top grades. Parents whose children attend the Archie R. Cole Middle School in East Greenwhich, RI, […]


Transparency a Must to Protect Our Ecosystem

April brought us Earth Day and with it at focus on both our ecosystem and those that claim it is their highest interest to protect the same. With reflection, though, we have to wonder if these self-appointed guardians of our environment are really just foxes guarding the henhouse succumbing to the temptation of power and […]


The Reverend Al Sharpton Almost Chokes On His Own BS

News-worthy:  No (Not much that is blurted out by the good Reverend is.) I believe this occurred Wednesday, on something called MSNBC. Not sure what the exact bodily function this would be classified as, but, it’s pretty damned funny. Turn up your volume a bit to get the full effect. W.T.F….    


Second Gun Shop Reverses, Now Won’t Sell Smart Gun

Earlier this year a gun shop in California began to gear up to sell a “smart gun,” but gun enthusiasts raised such a stink about the sale that the store backed off and even claimed they never intended to sell the gun. Now a shop in Maryland has had the same experience with similar results. […]


So, Now What Wizbangers?

Oh, where, oh, where do we go from here? So, I know that I was a late addition to this site and that I came in after several of your favorite posters had given up the ghost and quit posting here at the site. So, I understand that I am not a favorite. On the […]


Now Obama Bows to Foreign Robot, Seriously!

Our simpering president, Barack Hussein Obama, has a a habit of bowing for foreign dictators like the mewling, subservient, simpleton he is. But this week he took his bowing to foreigners to its most absurd end. He bowed to a Japanese robot! Back in 2010 after Obama had toured various parts of the world, photos […]


Fetid Chicago Schools: 11-Year-Old Suspended for Broken Toy Gun

Once again we see the stupidity of the so-called “zero tolerance” policy in our fetid schools with an 11-year-old boy in Chicago who was suspended for voluntarily turning in a broken toy gun to school officials after he remembered he had it in his coat pocket when he got to school. Chicago’s Frederick Funston Elementary […]


Boeing machinists cave to reality

Boeing machinists voted to accept a contract virtually identical to one they rejected last year by a 2-to-1 vote. Reality intruded on their so-called “principles”. Two months ago the machinists union worked overtime to kill the contract offer that was designed to keep production of the 777X in Washington Puget Sound region. The fundamental point […]


Obamacare “starting to look pretty healthy”? Don’t count on it

Faced with the disastrous debut of healthcare.gov and the Affordable Care Act’s termination of millions of existing insurance policies, the Obama Administration has launched a two-pronged propaganda campaign to disguise the failure of Obamacare as a “success.” First, Kevin Drum, quoting from The Washington Post at MotherJones.com, tells us that Obamacare enrollment is “starting to […]


On the anniversary of the Newtown

an excuse for the President, Michael Bloomberg, and elected Democrats (and more than a few Republicans, John McCain) to unilaterally repeal the Second Amendment, let’s take a moment – actually two – and remember one reason the Second Amendment is important…


GOP House Speaker John Boehner Has Proclaimed Himself an Enemy to the Tea Party

Earlier this week, House Speaker John Boehner, the nominal Republican from Ohio, threw down the gauntlet and announced that he is working to defeat anything conservatives and tea party groups want to get done in Washington and the group Tea Party Patriots is ready to accept that challenge.

The most famous photo from Nov. 22, 1963

The most famous photo from Nov. 22, 1963

There are perhaps hundreds of recognizable still and moving images related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.  Out of all of them, this is the one that has impacted me the most: The Inauguration of an American President is a celebration of many things.  It is a celebration of electoral victory.  It is […]


“Benghazi? It’s just a Fox story, don’t pay any attention there…”

“Really? Like ObamaCare?” Score a big one for Megyn Kelly who is doing the Lord’s work on Benghazi. Fourteen months ago the House Intelligence Committee asked the State Department that they wanted to interview the survivors from the Benghazi attacks. Fourteen months of stonewalling and five of the survivors finally were given the opportunity to […]


Angry Americans Protest Against Health Care Changes – the 1988 version

I remember one other time that Washington attempted to make a major change to health insurance. It was in 1988, at the depths of the Iran-Contra affair, when Ronald Regan was at his weakest. He decided to propose an expansion of Medicare coverage for “catastrophic” expenses and prescription drugs, but paid for entirely by the […]

A lesson we should learn from the Virginia election

Last night, Democrat Terry McAuliffe squeaked out a narrow victory in the Virginia governor’s race, beating Republican challenger Ken Cuccinelli by a mere 2 percentage points. McAuliffe should be well known to WizBang readers.  A former Clinton crony and fundraising genius, he masterfully weaseled his way into numerous business deals (usually by offering access to […]


Sheldon Adelson: We Should Nuke Iran

American Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson is pretty sick and tired of President Obama’s bumbling foreign policy, especially his failed policy with Iran. In fact, he thinks that the U.S. should launch a nuclear bomb into the Iranian desert and then warn Tehran that the next one will be right down their throats in their capitol […]


Thoughts on police states…

We live in interesting times. I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, and I’m sure this will be an incomplete and probably unsatisfying posting of thoughts but I’ve gotta start someplace. Here’s the news report that finally set me off today. Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne announced the state’s largest undercover food stamp […]


UPS ends health coverage for 15,000 working employee spouses, blames Obamacare

Kaiser Health News reports: Partly blaming the health law, United Parcel Service is set to remove thousands of spouses from its medical plan because they are eligible for coverage elsewhere. Many analysts downplay the Affordable Care Act’s effect on companies such as UPS, noting that the move is part of a long-term trend of shrinking […]


The Wussification Of America Continues

I had the unfortunate opportunity to watch resident CNN dufus Fareed Zakaira on Sunday. His guest? One Malcolm Gladwell,  a writer for The New Yorker. His topic:  Comparing playing football to engaging in dog fighting, and that college football should be eliminated due to the possibility of injury, specifically neurological disorders. Zakaira:  You compare football to dog […]


George Zimmerman Helps Car Accident Victims

George Zimmerman, seemingly the worst human being since Hitler, assists a family in an auto accident. This criminal mastermind MUST have planned this..  (Video report can be found here.) “(CNN) — Four days after he was acquitted of murder, George Zimmerman stepped out of seclusion to help a family get out of an overturned vehicle […]


Toyota’s Clown Decision

Over the past few months, my wife and I started receiving inquiries from car dealers, asking if we wanted to sell our 2010 Toyota Rav4.  The first couple seemed to be ordinary junk mail, but as they kept coming, sometimes with bids sight-unseen (although they could check the VIN for records of any incidents), it […]
