Democrats’ non-participation trophy

Sen. Hatch didn’t hesitate in changing the Senate Finance Committee rules after Democrats failed to attend a confirmation vote for Steve Mnuchin to be President Trump’s Treasury Secretary and Rep. Tom Price to be President Trump’s HHS Secretary for a second day in a row. This morning, Democrat senators didn’t attend the Senate Environment and […]

Obstructionist Dems stage walkout

This morning, Senate Democrats staged a protest walkout of the Finance Committee hearing. Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch had scheduled confirmation votes for Tom Price and Steve Mnuchin. Instead, Democrats proved that they’re incapable of governing. (It’s impossible to govern if you don’t show up, right?) The simple truth is that this walkout essentially ended the […]

Sen. Schumer’s obstructionism

If there was ever a doubt about whether Senate Democrats would be obstructionists, this article should shout ‘Democratic obstructionism’. President Trump announced today that he’ll announce his SCOTUS nominee next week sometime. Democrats are feeling bitter that Republicans give Merrick Garland, President Obama’s pick to replace Antonin Scalia, a committee hearing. It isn’t surprising to […]

The Schumer Option

When I wrote this post, I hadn’t read Stephen Hayes’ devastating article about Sen. Chuck Schumer’s dishonesty. In the post, I wrote that Democrats put a higher priority on their PR stunt, aka “the Resistance”, than they put on protecting national security. I wasn’t as cynical as I should’ve been. According to Hayes’ article, according […]

Cruz vs. Franken, Sessions edition

Al Franken’s attempt to sink Sen. Jeff Sessions’ confirmation as the 84th Attorney General of the United States failed. It failed partly because Sen. Franken is a buffoon. It failed partly because Sen. Franken essentially called Sen. Sessions a liar. Mostly, though, Sen. Franken failed because he attacked Sen. Sessions by basing his questions on […]

Sen. Schumer: Trump’s rival?

Years ago, the joke was that the most dangerous place to be in Washington, DC was between Sen. Schumer and either a microphone or a TV camera. The truth is that he’s a politician with an oversized ego (by politicians’ standards) who’s about to get trampled by a guy with a 140-character megaphone. Sen. Schumer […]

Democrats to commit political suicide?

If this article is accurate, then it’s safe to say that Democrats are preparing to commit political suicide. The opening paragraph states “Senate Democrats are preparing to put Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks through a grinding confirmation process, weighing delay tactics that could eat up weeks of the Senate calendar and hamper his first 100 days […]

The perfect Democrat

The perfect Democrat is a toothless Democrat. These days, there’s lots of toothless Democrats in DC. House Democrats have been toothless since January, 2011. Now it’s the Senate Democrats’ turn to feel impotent. They’re feeling impotent because outgoing Democrat Leader Harry Reid went nuclear in 2013. Now that there’s a Republican administration forming, Democrats are […]

Trump picks Price for HHS

Donald Trump’s cabinet keeps getting more impressive. This morning, President-Elect Trump officially announced that he’s picked Rep. Tom Price to be the Secretary of Health and Human Services. According to this WSJ article, “Mr. Trump on Tuesday also named Seema Verma, a consultant who helped Vice President-Elect Mike Pence negotiate a groundbreaking Medicaid deal with […]

Franken, the invisible senator

This Mike McFadden ad hits Al Franken right between his eyes: Here’s the transcript of the ad: I’m Mike McFadden and we need an honest debate about our future. [Graphic: Al Franken voted with President Obama 97% of the time, the most partisan senator in America.] I won’t vote 97% with any president or party. […]

Rep. Loon’s compelling case against Met Council

This video shows Rep. Jenifer Loon’s compelling case against the Met Council’s dictatorial authority: If Rep. Loon is right that the Met Council has the authority to override elected officials’ votes on things like the Southwest Light Rail project, then that runs contrary to the principles that this nation was founded on. This nation was […]

Al Franken’s biggest problem

Lots of conservatives have ridiculed Al Franken about not being funny. They’ve criticized him for being a temperamental hard left lefty, too. While those are accurate, that isn’t Franken’s biggest problem. In fact, they’re far from it. This WashPo article works overtime to make Franken sound like a serious legislator: “He stays home and studies […]
