#Obamacare may be the biggest legislative scam ever pulled on the American people. Sold to people as a fight for lower healthcare costs (it raised them), increased insurance coverage (millions, including me, were cancelled), and a fight against "big insurance companies", it is a total scam.

You may not have heard but the insurance companies are being bailed out again, with your money, while the Obama administration swears they're fighting for the "little guy." Breaking today, the insurance companies are getting another 3 BILLION in your tax money in so-called "cost-sharing" subsidies to prevent them from losing money in complying with onerous Obamacare regulations.

This is in addition to their "risk corridor" bailout payments which they are also entitled to in the event that they lose money. In short, the FCC approved government control of the Internet today under the guise of "going after" Internet Service Providers. You're being scammed again with the FCC's #NetNeutrality scam, just like they scammed us with Obamacare because, once implemented, the government-controlled Internet will become a crony handout-scheme just like Obamacare has become.

And yes, I'm a little salty today. I'm upset because I'm tired of this administration's scheming and scamming. This administration's deception, and their destruction of our healthcare and economy, will be the scars we all have to deal with when this President is long gone on his private golf course sipping cocktails.

This man had the opportunity to be the most badass president this country's ever seen. But he fucked it up by giving a daily blowjob to corporate interests. Cautionary tale...

What the Left calls "fly-over country", we call America, and Americans don't care about "who you're wearing" at the Oscars.

But, they do care about selfless sacrifice and that's why what American Sniper Chris Kyle's wife was carrying at the Oscar's has generated an outpouring of goodwill.

If you needed additional evidence of just how out-of-touch and politicized our federal government has become under this President, consider the Department of Homeland Security's recent report on the dangers from "right-wing extremism."

According to CNN, "A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month and reviewed by CNN, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists and comes as the Obama administration holds a White House conference to focus efforts to fight violent extremism."

We should never dismiss any threat of violence or terror, but don't you find it a bit odd that President Obama absolutely refuses to call Islamic extremism by name, yet is completely comfortable demanding that Christians atone for the sins of their 11th century brothers and sisters?

The President is also more than content to name the "right-wing" when discussing potential terror attacks, despite the fact that there is NO Conservative, Libertarian, or Republican unifying ideology which advocates acts of violence to advance a political cause. The President shamefully advocates this approach all while refusing to even call the "Islamic State" by the name they have GIVEN THEMSELVES.

I'm tired of being lectured by this failed President. I'm tired of having his finger waved at us, cautioning us against stereotyping Muslims. I'm well aware of the fact that every child of God is entitled to be judged on their own merits and character. I'm also tired of the infantilization of America on the world stage in front of the world's bad actors by this constant Presidential verbal assault on our collective character.

The constant "America did this" and "America screwed this up" approach by this President is tiresome and holds America to a fictional standard that no country on earth has ever achieved. It also ignorantly disregards all of the selfless good America has done. All of the sacrifices, all of the blood shed, and all of the hard-earned tax dollars of America's men and women given to defend the liberty and land of others, are consistently ignored by this President until he is politically cornered and embarrassed by those from the Left and Right.

A final thought; we should always question authority and government at all levels. Patriotism, unlike justice, is not blind. But patriotism does require a careful consideration of more than just a few politically correct and left-wing-vetted soundbites. When you consider the long human history of war, destruction, and plunder, it is remarkable what America has accomplished without seeking an Empire. Despite the claims of delusional far-leftists we are neither a colonial power, nor an Empire. A rational person would think that the absence of US "colonies" in the world, despite our many military victories, would serve as a clue but when you're convinced that America is the disease in the world, and not the cure, reason goes out of the window. When reason goes out the window so does your credibility, just as President Obama's has on the domestic and world stage.

The Maryland Republican Power Rankings:

In the course of my reading I've come across a number of political "power ranking" articles where they opine on who the real political players are in Maryland. In my opinion, most of these articles are written by Democrats with little knowledge about who and what really motivates and moves the Republican Party and the Conservative and Libertarian base. So, I decided to put together my own "power ranking" piece based on my experience with the base and the Republican Party in Maryland.

Here's the criteria I used in my analysis, along with a few disclaimers. The rankings take into account my team's experience with the individuals, their ability to raise funds, their ability to garner grassroots support, their political ambitions (better described as my personal evaluation of their ambitions), name recognition, media savvy (yes, it's a little vague but play along), the political enemies they have accumulated, and the organizational ability of their respective teams.
Disclaimer: Obviously, I will not include my operation and, although my analysis is based on some hard metrics, there is an obvious and unavoidable personal bias. Also, this is NOT an endorsement of any of the names on this list, or their policies, and is only meant to share what I know with you.

With all of that said, here's the list:

1. Governor Larry Hogan - Against all odds, Hogan pulled off the unlikeliest of political victories against heavily-favored Democrat Anthony Brown. He stuck with a simple message about the state's economy and tax environment and it worked. Winning a reelection campaign in 2018 will more difficult.

2. Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh - Schuh won a decisive victory in both his primary versus Laura Neuman and in the general election. He is a proven fundraiser and is in charge of a county with a significant portion of the state's Republican voters.

3. Congressman Andy Harris - Harris is the state's lone federally elected Republican representing the Eastern Shore. He can raise money and has an experienced campaign team.

4. Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford - See #1

5. Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman - Kittleman won handily in the increasingly Democratic Howard County and is experienced in state-level politics due to his time as a State Senator.

6. Former Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman - Lost her primary to Steve Schuh, but raised a good sum of money for a first-time candidate. Neuman also developed a loyal cadre of supporters in her short-term as County Executive. A side note; she is a fierce debater with a serious grasp of the issues and how to frame them.

7. Former First-Lady Kendel Ehrlich - The Ehrlich name, accompanied by a rejuvenated Republican donor-base in Maryland, pursuant to the Hogan victory, has opened doors for the former Maryland First-Lady.

8. Former Lt. Governor Michael Steele - Has the name recognition and the recurrent television exposure to immediately enter any state-wide race he wishes with few barriers.

9. Harford County Executive Barry Glassman - A former State Senator, he hails from another heavily Republican County. Name recognition and fund-raising ability could be an issue in a future state-wide race.

10. House of Delegates Minority Leader Nic Kipke - Recently reelected to a second stint as the Minority Leader, he has a natural media platform which few other Republican Delegates can lay claim to.

I would love to hear your comments on the rankings as I will be updating it regularly.

While listening to a local talk-radio show recently, I heard a self-declared liberal caller tell the host, “You guys will go after Obama for anything.” I thought this was an interesting comment considering that devoted liberals will rarely challenge President Obama on anything.

It's happening again.
Despite record low trust in government, the epic failure of Obamacare, an IRS targeting scandal, the targeting of journalists at the AP and Fox News, NSA overreach, and Washington DC dysfunctionality at near historic levels, the government will change the Internet forever starting tomorrow when it releases its plan to regulate what was once a free and open Internet.

If you believe that this plan, which is deceptively called #NetNeutrality, is in any way "neutral" or fair, I encourage you to use a search engine (which is still free, no thanks to government) to search the phrase "broken government promises." This plan is an adventure in crony-capitalism disguised, and creatively marketed, as a "David vs.Goliath" fight against ISPs just like Obamacare was supposed to be a fight against health insurance companies. What they're not telling you is that the companies fighting for "Net Neutrality" have an enormous financial interest in its implementation, just as some health insurance industry and pharmaceutical industry supporters backed Obamacare.

Eventually the government, as it typically does, turned on the doctors, health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies and left them holding the bag, just like it will turn on the companies fighting for Net Neutrality. Jonathan Gruber's videos explain how this was the Obama administration's plan the entire time; lie to the people, get their vote and support, screw them over, and then get them to blame anyone other than government.

Internet taxes, a licensing requirement for websites, and the heavy foot of government on the face of the Internet is inevitable if Net Neutrality is allowed to stand. And, to all of those "government knows what's best for me" types who claim this is a good idea remember, you are as responsible as they are for opening the door and letting them in. They will never leave your house once that door has been opened.

I'm disappointed, but not surprised, that the most important story of the month is receiving scant coverage from mainstream media outlets. We are witnessing, AGAIN, the abject failure of socialism right in front of our eyes and some in the media are treating it as if it's a lost puppy story.

How many more are going to suffer under the yoke of this broken and failed ideology before it meets the scrap heap of history? Socialism's failures have been epic in proportion and the body counts and economic destruction left in its wake are staggering. There are few thought systems that can lay claim to the societal destruction that socialism has wrought.

Here's the latest account of its destruction:

Socialist President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela is now arresting and jailing political opposition to stave off a potential coup in Venezuela. Although Venezuela has some of the world's largest oil reserves, there are bare shelves in their supermarkets, hyperinflation is ravaging their currency, street crime is reaching epidemic levels, and the Venezuelan economy is in shambles.

Socialist President Francois Hollande of France has done a u-turn since arriving in office promising more socialism. What he is now promising is more economic freedom as he prepares to seek another term and realizes that socialism sounds great to some people in theory, but feels really painful to everyone in the real world. His "millionaires' tax" failed, his spending plans failed, and his "grow government and shrink the individual" plans failed. Now he needs votes so freedom has developed a nice ring to it. Convenient?

Socialist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of Greece was recently elected on a socialist platform yet, when he took office he was promptly humiliated by the European Union, the ECB and the IMF who threatened to cut off the massive sums of money the profligate Greek government needs from them to stay afloat. All of his promises of bigger government programs and government salvation have fallen flat because, as Margaret Thatcher warned, "The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money."

+Brian Wood So I didn't up set you? Sorry Brian but your posts indicate otherwise. 
You have done more to destroy your Free Market Cultist regurgitation of talking points as well as your personal integrity than I could have possibly cared to do.

And I'm still waiting for a challenging argument from you. But I suspect the best you can offer are these empty rants.

Oh and Brian you have never given any example of your "Free Trade" fairydust existing in the real world, as I have very clearly asked for multiple times. Farmers Markets are not the unregulated Free Market world you'd like to bless them with. In fact they have no resemblance to the delusional qualities that are required to fulfill your right-wing reactionary dream world. 

Cheer up Brian.  :-D

The Bongino #Podcast episode 4 available NOW. Titled "A Bad Week for #Socialism."

How does Socialism retain any ideological credibility? Venezuela's approaching economic collapse, French President Hollande's u-turn, and the Greek economic crisis; these are all current examples of the complete and abject failure of this dangerous governing model. Yet some continue to try to sell us this snake-oil. This week's podcast pulls no punches on this topic.

These savages are not interested in either the President's interpretation of their ideology or his "jobs program." They are hegemonic in ambition, and savage in their methods.

Few people take the President seriously anymore on foreign policy. I am far from an adventurist with regard to allocating our precious US military men, women and our assets, but this President has completely lost touch with reality.

This man's last words were "My Lord Jesus, save me." God rest his soul.

We all need saving. It's never too late to be reminded of the power of salvation through The Lord.

"Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place onto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith The Lord." -Roman 12:19

This man's killers will feel the Power of The Lord.

The administration is living in a fantasy land. Their recent suggestion that the root cause of terrorism is the lack of jobs for terrorists is absolutely absurd and defies both common sense, and the evidence.

Osama bin Laden came from a wealthy family and his successor Ayman al-Zawahiri was a doctor. Legions of additional terrorists came from very wealthy families and they already had jobs. Their "job" was terrorism, death and destruction.

About Daniel

Dan and Paula have been married for nine years. Paula is an independent web design consultant who operates two successful small businesses in addition to being a full time parent to their two daughters, Isabel and Amelia. They have resided in Severna Park since 2002 and are active members of the St. John the Evangelist Church community.

While working full time for the New York City Police Department, Dan used his accrued vacation time to attend the City University of New York where he completed both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Psychology, concentrating in both Neuro-Psychology and Behavioral Learning. During his tenure as a Special Agent with the U.S. Secret Service, Dan completed his second graduate degree, a Master’s of Business Administration at Penn State University, where he tested at the top of his class.

New York City Police Department
Dan began his career with the NYPD in 1995 as a Police Cadet while attending The City University of New York full time. During his tenure in the Cadet program, Dan was a member of the distinguished pattern identification unit which specialized in the identification and apprehension of serial criminals. Dan also performed many hours of undercover operations in a number of New York City’s communities. Dan graduated from the Cadet program and became a full time Police Officer in 1997, where he graduated with honors from the New York City Police Academy. Dan spent the next two years patrolling the streets of Brooklyn, New York where he saw first-hand the devastation of years of failed social policy and experimentation. He would never see the world the same way again after his experiences with the good citizens of Brooklyn. Dan left the NYPD with official commendations for both meritorious and excellent police duty.

United States Secret Service
Dan proudly joined the ranks of the U.S. Secret Service in 1999 as a Special Agent where he graduated the Secret Service training academy with academic honors. Beginning his career in the New York Field Office, he was assigned to investigate federal crimes including but not limited to protective intelligence, computer crimes, bank fraud, credit card fraud and counterfeiting. His early career was marked by a number of investigative successes. Although the details of his signature investigation are still for official use only, it involved over 300 million dollars in potential financial fraud and a nexus to international terrorism. This joint investigation in cooperation with the FBI, IRS, SSA and a number of local police agencies, was responsible for shutting down a major international fraud ring. The investigation earned Dan the Department of Justice recognition award, along with other agency specific awards, for excellence in investigations.
Dan left the New York Field Office in 2002 to become an instructor at the Secret Service Training Academy in Beltsville, Maryland. He was the project manager for the re-design of the investigative tactics training program which he subsequently taught to incoming trainees. Dan was awarded a number of commendations for his work in researching and re-designing the investigative curriculum to reflect current trends crime trends.

In 2006, Dan entered into duty on the elite Presidential Protection Division in the administration of President George W. Bush, graduating at the top of his class in the difficult detail training program. Dan distinguished himself early by becoming one of the earliest tenured Special Agents to be given responsibility for an operational section of the protective detail. Dan remained on protective duty during the change in administration to President Barack Obama and again distinguished himself by quickly becoming the highest ranking member of his operational shift of agents. With this distinction came greater responsibility and Dan quickly rose to the challenge. He was designated as the lead agent responsible for the coordination of the President’s trip to Prague for the signing of the START treaty, his trip to Jakarta, Indonesia, amongst a myriad of terror threats, and finally as the lead agent responsible for the President’s visit to an active war zone in Afghanistan. With the successful coordination of these historic events, Dan was awarded a series of commendations and left the protective detail as one of the most distinguished agents in their history.

Dan transferred to the Baltimore Field Office in 2010 where he immediately made an impact on the community, breaking up one of the largest fraud rings in Maryland's history (

Small Business Entrepreneur
Dan and his wife Paula are the owners of a number of successful small businesses ranging from web solutions and design to sporting equipment. Dan is currently starting his third small business, Silverloch Risk Management, catering to the assessment and mitigation of risk for high profile clients.

Why Dan, Why now?
Dan has both the academic and real world experience to immediately lead in these difficult times. His extensive studies in Psychology and Economics combined with his real world experiences in the inner cities of Baltimore and New York City give him a unique perspective regarding the problems of the citizens of Maryland. Dan believes in real answers and straight talk and plans to challenge the political establishment directly on the important issues of the day.
