Conservatives on Fire | Regulatory Capture

Although we complain a lot about the influence of lobbyist, lobbying is a legitimate function in a democracy. When a law or regulation is being proposed by government, those that will be affected have a right to express their concerns either positive or negative.

President Obama has deliberately staffed all regulatory agencies with anti-business people. We see it in the EPA, the NLRB, the DOJ and, every other agency. We conservative bloggers post about the negative effects of this all the time. Now we know it has a name: Regulatory Capture.

Arizona Politics for Conservatives: Sonoran Alliance | Mitt Romney: The Future Needs A Strong America

“You have to balance your budget, or you go broke. To make government simpler, smaller, and smarter we have to take government itself and make it more productive and more efficient.

Cold Fury | The worm turns

Krauthammer on the bitter defeat suffered by the Progressivist monobloc Tuesday: The real threat behind all this, however, was that the new law ended automatic government collection of union dues. That was the unexpressed and politically inexpressible issue. That was the reason the unions finally decided to gamble on a high-risk recall.

Pixie Place II | D-Day, 1944

Remembering the sacrifice made by those who stormed the beaches at Normandy – Utah, Omaha, Juno, Gold, and Sword – and were dropped into France in the largest use of airborne troops ever used to that point. A video from the United States Army. More than 9000 Allied troops died on those beaches that day.

Patriot’s Corner | Creeping Towards Dachau

The Nazis were evil.  Any insight into their principles and methods will shed light on how such horrors can be perpetrated by civilized human beings, remind us that human beings can and do give themselves over to evil, and hopefully allow us to act against similar projects if we see them being enacted before us in the world today.

A Conservative Teacher | Is the Perfect Government for the US Now a Dictatorship? Thoughts Inspired by Montesquieu.

Montesquieu was a French social commentator and first-rate political thinker who lived during the Enlightenment. Although he most famous for his influential writings on the benefits of separating political powers up between three branches of government, another important concept that he wrote about was virtue.

Montesquieu thought that the State should be a reflection of the people- “The government most comfortable to nature is that which best agrees with the humour and disposition of the people in whose favour it is established.

Ironic Surrealism | Schindlers List Producer Blacklisted From High School Grad Speech

Was the principle afraid of, that his graduating students would get “Right-Wing Conservative” cooties? OR…that after 12 years of public schooling they may be exiting with their [individual] minds intact, with the ability to decide for themselves what path to follow? God forbid!

Federal Law Enforcement Can’t Call Border Patrol For Backup

This ruling by the Agriculture Departments assistant secretary for civil rights could change policies nationwide as law enforcement agencies grapple with how far they can go in trying to help the Border Patrol while not running afoul of racial profiling standards.

The Bitter Americans | Single Parent? Hold the Pity Party

Not every single parent wants your sympathy.  Many of them take the challenge on head first and make nothing of the situation, but we have all seen that single parent who feels ‘beat up’ by life.  Make sure you are ready for the responsibility before you engage in parenthood.

Doug Ross @ Journal | What do you call a president who presided over a 100 percent spike in food-stamp spending in only three-and-a-half years in office?

No, you can’t. Because that would be racist. Or so the Left tells us.

The Lonely Conservative | Obama Offended that Anyone Would Say National Security Leaks Were Political

During his press conference this morning President Obama was asked about the recent rash of national security leaks, some of which put the lives of US agents in danger. If you want to watch video of his awkward response go to The Hill. He feigned outrage, but he didn’t seem that outraged. He also claimed that there’s no way any of the leaks came from the White House. “The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive,” Obama said at a brief White House news conference. “It’s wrong.” He said his policy is one of “zero tolerance for these kinds of leaks and speculation.” “If we can root out folks who have leaked, they will suffer consequences … we will conduct thorough investigations as we have in the past,” he said. He’s so outraged that he refuses to even consider appointing a special prosecutor to look into the matter. Peggy Noonan addressed the national security leaks, and how even Democrats are calling foul in her weekend column.

Maggie’s Notebook | Dont Vote For The Jew!

Is the words on this campaign poster against Rep. Steve Rothman in the upcoming Democratic Primary. The latest tactic in campaigning. Now it is outright anti-Semitism. A Democratic primary race in northern New Jersey has devolved into a highly competitive proxy war over Israel, pitting the states pro-Israel community against a growing constituency of Arab voters who have accused a sitting congressman of putting Israels interests before Americas.

Ana the Imp | Vivat Regina!

England is having a party.  This week we celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee, sixty years on the throne, only the second time in our history that we have seen such an occasion, the first being for Queen Victoria in 1897.  But then Victoria, for so long in morbid isolation and declining in health, was the ghost at the party, the ghost of a passing age.  Not so Elizabeth, as active, as involved, as committed and as dutiful as ever. 


Conservative Byte | House GOP: Want more jobs? How bout we quit stalling on energy production?


For the time being, President Obama has moved away from energy as the campaign theme du jour, especially as gas prices have calmed down.

WyBlog | Old and busted: Obamacare will cut the deficit. New spin: Overturn Obamacare, save billions!

Remember when the Democrats told us Obamacare would lead to tremendous budget savings and huge cuts in the federal deficit?

SENTRY JOURNAL | When conservatives don’t embrace liberty

Have you ever met someone who claimed to be conservative to the bone and then turned around and threw their support behind bigger government? If the answer is yes well you’re not alone.

There are two measures on the North Dakota ballot next Tuesday. One measure eliminates property taxes while the other strengthens and preserves religious freedom for the individual. The goal conservatives should be striving to achieve is less government, less regulation, lower taxes, and empowering the individual at all levels. Many so-called conservatives are not really embracing these core principles. Instead they’re throwing their support behind bigger government involvement in their lives.

My pleasure. I have to admit, I had never heard the term Regulatory Capture before reading your post – in either sense. Sounds like corruption, pure and simple.

Thanks for the link, Martin. Looks like lots of good stuff up there. One thing’s for sure — with Obama, there’s always plenty to read & write about. Or should I say, to expose…
