Obama wants your wood-burning stove

[Editor’s Note:  The writer is president of The Americans For Limited Government Foundation.] In a blow to innovation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has denied a petition to reconsider a restrictive regulation dealing with wood stoves and the types of wood burned in them….

NC-02: Heritage Action says Renee Ellmers most liberal GOP House member from NC

#ncpol: ‘Did I say ”EMINENT domain”? Gosh, I meant INTIMATE.’

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Tom Campbell introduced us to the term ‘intimate domain’ on this weekend’s edition of NC Spin.  We, of course, knew what he meant to say. But there are a lot of politicians this very minute running like hell from the very…

#ncpol: Polling, press releases & pabulum. N&O laziness extends from NC-02 over to NC-07.

Young Mr. Campbell has apparently learned well from Jedi master Rob. *Why bother making calls and digging when someone has already pretty much written the story for you?* “Rep. Rouzer: Poll shows GOP opponent doesn’t have much support” is the headline that screams at us…

#ncpol NC-07: Rouzer applauds, then runs from CSX’s JoCo land grab

#ncpol NC-07: Mr. Rouzer, I do believe your pants are on fire.

It’s a shame that outright bald-faced lies are so plentiful in politics.  Occasionally, though, some lies surface that are so outrageous that we just have to highlight them for our dear readers. A few months back, some Members of Congress sent the following letter to…

#nc-07: Former NCGOP official primarying Rouzer

For Mark Otto, his decision to challenge rookie congressman David Rouzer is both business AND personal:  […] “Conservative voters are finding our stockings stuffed with coal this Christmas, courtesy of Nancy Pelosi, Paul Ryan and the establishment Republicans in congress.

Dems– STILL the minority — celebrate their Omnibus victory

Hear it in their own words:  […] The Democrats’ victory, and Republican Ryan’s defeat, was garishly displayed when his omnibus got more Democratic votes in the House and in the Senate than it got Republican votes. “I said I would not accept a lot of…
