Wimp-In-Chief Obama Attempts to Regulate Sports Culture…

“Identifying a concussion and being able to self-diagnose that, ‘this is something that I need to take care of,’ doesn’t make you weak. It means you’re strong,” Obama said of athletes acknowledging concussions, while he announced new private-public funding to study head injuries in sports… Click here to view original web page at washingtonexaminer.com       Read More »

Obama’s politicized, lawless executive branch

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama's abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama's conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough...

Marty the Magician performed magic tricks for kids, including the traditional rabbit-out-of-a-hat. Then one day: "I was signing autographs and taking pictures with children and their parents," he told me. "Suddenly, a badge was thrown into the mix, and an inspector said, 'Let me see your license.'"

In "Harry Potter" books, a creepy Ministry of Magic controls young wizards. Now in the USA, government regulates stage magicians -- one of the countless ways it makes life harder for the little guy...

Dodd-Frank: Obama’s other big bad law

In July 2010, four months after President Obama signed his universal health-care act into law, he enacted his other signature achievement, the Dodd-Frank financial reform law. Although we haven't paid as much attention to it, Dodd-Frank is as flawed in its own way as Obamacare, with a similar potential to harm ordinary Americans. And the failures have similar origins.

For starters, both Obamacare and Dodd-Frank are too long. Obamacare clocks in at 906 pages; Dodd-Frank is 849 pages. By contrast, the 1965 act creating Medicare ran 138 pages, and the Securities Act of 1933 - a cornerstone of financial regulation that helped prevent meltdowns for five decades - ran just 93 pages...

America’s Fracking Revolution Is Threatened By A New Report From The State Department – Forbes

The concern for proponents of lower electricity bills is that the EPA will ignore new, comprehensive methane emissions data when it releases a hydraulic fracturing methane regulation. Last year, Energy and Natural Resources Ranking Member Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and then Environment and Public Works Ranking Member Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) wrote then EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson a letter outlining their concerns with EPA’s methane collection methodology...
