Speaker Boehner (R-OH) holds the veto power over the U.S. Senate has they begin to consider the gun control bill on the floor of the Senate. The Speaker has an obligation to uphold the U.S. Constitution and he can do just that by using a procedure that gives him much control over the gun control debate and other Obama legislative agenda items in the coming months. Hear how: http://www.gradegov.com/news.php?id=227
I just read a story that made my skin crawl. http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/14892-obama-admin-ignores-nullification-federal-agents-will-enforce-obamacare . Barack Obama has declared that the federal government will send federal agents into states to take over their…Continue

Immigration reform seems to be one of the go-to plays for politicians seeking votes these days. Everyone trots out some plan to integrate illegal immigrants into the tax system in a program that would eventually lead to the possibility of citizenship. It is hard to see how this is any kind of solution to real problems. Think about this logically…currently illegal immigrants are working in the United States…they are getting paid in cash…they are getting free schooling, sometimes even to…Continue
I'll preface this by saying, that as an Objectivist ( the philosophy of Ayn Rand ), I'm against all taxation. I consider it a form of slavery. I advocate voluntary government, not supported by slavery, and I think that the 16th Amendment repealed the 13th. ( Read them for yourself and see what I mean! ) I see a switch to…Continue
Here's why real conservatives should oppose the Ryan budget:
1. It maintains the federal leviathan working to control our lives. FACTS: The Ryan budget won't result in the single closure of any sizable federal agency and explicitly avoids layoffs of federal workers. As Roll Call newspaper put it, "Ryan's budget eliminates the deficit in 2023…Continue
Crony Capitalists (CCs) never quit trying to entice federal officials into giving them special access or favors and shutting millions of the rest of us out of court, so they have no accountability to a local jury for negligence or shoddy service. They've enlisted scores of Members of Congress, many of them self-proclaimed backers of states' rights, in an effort to to override the Founding Fathers' clear guidance that Congress doesn't have authority over state tort law, specifically with…Continue
Yesterday was the 102nd birthday of Ronald Reagan, the greatest President of my lifetime, to whom I owe personal and professional thanks for my marriage (to one of his White House secretaries) and my Washington career (beginning as a Reagan Administration political appointee). His personally autographed photo congratulating us on our marriage is one of our most cherished possessions.
Almost two years ago, I researched all of his speeches and writings available on the internet…Continue
THE REAL PROBLEM WITH IMMIGRATION LAW REFORM
The immigration law reform debate is becoming as nonsensical as the debate over the existence of weapons of mass destruction. Something just needs to be admitted:
v Someone allowed weapons of mass destruction to be sold and the weapons were simply not found.
v Someone allowed 11 million people to be in the US illegally and now the people in the US illegally cannot be found.
The issue should not be…Continue
It wasn't difficult to see liberals standing on the Mall in Washington, bundled in warm clothing and loudly cheering President Obama's Inaugural Address, with the promise of larger and more activist central government deployed to implement a "progressive" agenda. But I saw another group smiling softly deep in the background. It was the Crony Capitalists, watching from warm, comfortable Fortune 100 boardrooms across America and on Wall Street, and their K Street lobbyists in …Continue
Establishment types like Gingrich have been blaming the "crazy" Tea Party radicals for all of these problems, but the Tea Partiers look to me like the only ones who know what they're doing. Ted Cruz, just elected to the Senate with Tea Party support, explains why Republicans should follow a different part of Gingrich's  example, says Robert Tracinski, editor of “The Tracinski Letter.”
‘You fast-forward to the debt…Continue
Three recent proposals by highly respected conservative health care experts indicate how far out of favor the idea of capping medical malpractice damages through federal law has fallen in the past two years. Increasingly, the experts who guide Republicans in health care policy are accepting the likelihood, as stated by Randy Barnett this summer, that the post-Obamacare Supreme Court would overturn…Continue
Prof. Randy Barnett was one of the leading theorists among Tea Party activists and Republicans in the court battles against Obamacare. He was co-counsel for the complaint filed by the NFIB, which was eventually the basis for the Supreme Court ruling that Obamacare is an excessive use of federal power and an invalid exercise of the Commerce Clause and the Necessary and Proper Clause.
Prof. Barnett has also been a staunch opponent of federal tort…Continue
A Letter To My Congressman:

You’ve no doubt heard that the US Anti-Doping Agency has stripped Lance Armstrong of his seven Tour De France titles. This has been done, not because of any provable evidence that Armstrong was doping, but rather because Armstrong is a politically incorrect conservative. That “agency” didn’t seem to have any trouble finding…Continue

The Supreme Court's decision in the Obamacare case (Acrobat document) highlighted the limits of federal authority over states' and individual rights. Over and over again, Chief Justice Roberts wrote of the Constitution's enumerated powers for the federal government and of the need to protect states from an overreaching federal government. He defined states' rights in terms of the inherent "police power" which is reserved…Continue
In my opinion, the single biggest problem with the Republican Party today is that its leaders claim to represent the cause of limited government, or "constitutional conservatism," but either don't know what that really means or hypocritically ignore its meaning to advance an "un-conservative" political agenda. The Obamacare decision by the Supreme Court revealed an incredible disconnect between the claims of top Beltway Republicans and their stands on the specific use of federal power to…Continue
My husband, David Sieverding, worked for a start up in Boulder Colorado called Valleylab.
Valleylab designed and marketed electro surgical generators. They worked on the principle that high heat stops bleeding. I once met a man who had his throat cut but saved his own life by putting a hot bald agaginst his throat.
Valleylab's electrosurgical generators were used by surgeons for circumcisions. Sometimes they turned them up too high with the result that the…Continue

In the Obamacare decision on Thursday, the five conservative Supreme Court Justices rejected the unlimited scope of the Commerce Clause and the Necessary & Proper Clause envisioned by proponents of federal tort reform bills (especially caps on damages in medical malpractice lawsuits). Justice Roberts was especially deferential to federalism, employing the terms "state sovereignty" and "enumerated powers" often in his decision. Proponents of federal tort reform are among the big losers in…Continue
Last week, scores of influential Catholic and Christian groups publicly backed the principles underlying the lawsuits filed on May 21 by Catholic dioceses and groups against the Obamacare drug and device mandates. The announcements should add considerable pressure on the Obama White House to rescind or amend HHS regulations ordering faith-based groups to engage in health care activities totally contrary to the congregations' religious doctrines.…Continue
