“Free Speech Wins Big” in McCutcheon Ruling? It’s FALSE NEWS!

falsenews

The news hit the political front with the expected clash of ideologies. The left was appalled at yet another blow that would flood the political process with a tidal wave of cash. The right hailed their newfound “freedom” to extend their political reach with that tidal wave reaching across the entire nation. While most of the media plainly state the ruling as striking down limits on campaign contributions, few are willing to challenge the Roberts Court claim that these limits “intrude without justification on a citizen’s ability to exercise ‘the most fundamental First Amendment activities’”. Is the real purpose of campaign finance caps, as Investor’s Business Daily states, an unjustified means of “trying toprevent people financing their own political speech”?

He also delivered a major climate change speech in Jakarta when he point-blank branded those who continue to deny climate evidence as “shoddy scientists”.  President Obama addressed climate change and its increasing costs as he promised millions of dollars of relief to the drought-stricken San Joaquin Valley, despite the region’s Congressman … Continue reading

Obamacare Destroying 2 Million Jobs?!? It’s FALSE NEWS!

Most have heard by now of the earth-shattering release of the OMB report on the Affordable Care Act and its devastating announcement of a loss of 2 million American jobs. You’ve probably also heard the White House response led by Jay Carney, and his now infamous remark that seems to indicate people should have no problem with not working and getting free Medicaid, if they want to. But here are a few details you might not have heard.
