Ten Shut Down Government Agencies You Didn't Know You Were Missing

Now that we're a little more than a week on from the government shutdown's start, Americans are a beginning to feel the effects of not having a bureaucratic nightmare breathing down their necks as they make all of their major life decisions. Can the governent breathe down our necks while the website that powers the government's own health care plan is still non-functional? Unfortunately, it can.

Denying Death Benefits: Obama Administration Goes Too Far

President Poutypants is really revealing his petulant side. The government has shut down several times before now, but this president has been so spiteful as to close down outdoor monuments and even privately-funded sites that have never been shut down before. Now, his foot-stomping has sunk to a whole new low.

DC Rolling Protest: Truckers Demand to be Heard

Beltway traffic is never fun to navigate, but starting Friday, it might be getting a whole lot worse. People around the country are getting increasingly upset with our government, which doesn't appear to be listening. With Washington continuing to spiral out of control, people are finding new ways to protest that can’t be ignored.

Chart: Why Default Won't Happen

Default won't happen. This chart shows why the U.S. Government will not default on its debt, should it hit the statutory debt limit set by Congress (a limit that the Treasury Deparment suggests may be reached later this month).

FreedomCast - Shutdown Theatre and the Petty Antics of the White House

On today’s edition of the FreedomCast, Lachlan Markay joins me to discuss the shutdown theater: the selective closing of national monuments and park grounds, and why some websites such as Michelle Obama’s “Drink Up” campaign site were deemed essential during this partial shutdown, but others were not.

A Modest Proposal For A Proper Shutdown

America deserves a strong leader during the government shutdown, not one who merely allows us to stumble along, doing whatever we want in the middle of the greatest crisis of all time. President Obama should take the threat to his credibility seriously, and not allow Americans to lose sight of the central role of government in their lives.

What Current Affairs Reveal About Education

It’s as if current events are working together to reform education, or, at the very least, to make it evident to all Americans why reform needs to happen. Between the current government shutdown and the looming debt ceiling, it’s becoming more evident every day that the safest place for education is as far away from the federal government as possible.

Make No Mistake, This is Harry Reid's Shutdown

Make no mistake, this is no longer a Washington where President Obama is always in charge. On Capitol Hill the man in charge is Harry Reid. No question about it. President Obama has handed over the reins of leadership on government funding and the debt limit to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). Reid is now fully in charge of his party’s negotiating strategy, a significant change from past showdowns with Republicans.

Shutdown Theater Continues, AMBER Alert Site Redirected

Yesterday, it was noted that the AMBER Alert site run by the Department of Justice appeared to be the latest victim of the government shutdown. The AMBER Alert system instantly alerts local communities of child abductions. Attempting to check out the AMBER Alert site, results in this notification:
