Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

Obama Buys Time, Solves Nothing

This article first appeared at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, September 11th, 2013:

Can Any Good Come Out of the Syrian Fiasco?

This article first appeared at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, September 6th, 2013:

As the President tries to rally support for his Senate resolution to bomb Syria to teach Assad a lesson, he is sitting on an ice-cube that is melting.

On Tuesday night, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted underwhelmingly, 10-7, to support a watered-down version of what the White House really wanted: authorization to do what it wanted in Syria. Instead, the language limited his adventure to

Another Obamacare Delay Admitted by the White House

On Monday the New York Times quoted an unnamed White House official that another piece of the labyrinthine healthcare law is going to have to be delayed until 2015, which will wind up costing vast numbers of citizens with severe illnesses potentially thousands, perhaps even hundreds of thousands, of dollars.

Government Shutdown in November?

This article was first published at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, July 29th, 2013:

Tuesday’s announcement by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that he wouldn’t consider anything the House passed that didn’t repeal the sequester “cuts,” followed by Utah Senator Mike Lee’s letter that he and 11 other senators would block any budget that contained spending to implement Obamacare, have set the battles lines for October. So “sequester” and “Obamacare funding” are back in vogue. Like the battles line drawn at Gettysburg, the left and the right are lining up their cannons.

Reid said he has “no interest” in

House votes to repeal Obamacare, again

Thursday’s House vote to repeal all of Obamacare, 229-195, was the third such vote since 2011, and the 37th time a vote to turn back at least part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was taken. Every Republican voted to repeal along with two conservative Democrats.
