GOP Establishment vs. a kingdom of conscience

I received a lot of feedback on yesterday’s commentary about how Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have traded their Conservative principles for compromising politics; needless to say, it was a mixed-bag of supporters and detractors. One of the glaring arguments…

Rubio and Cruz trade conservative principles for compromising politics

During the Republican primaries, Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) were the last two so-called “Conservatives” to fall to Donald Trump. For many, they represented the hope of having a true Conservative in the White House. But now,…

Ted Cruz enshrined in the G.O.P. Hall of Shame

Let me begin by saying that my support for Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) before, during and after his presidential bid is well-documented. The reason for my support was based primarily on his commitment to the Constitution along with the appearance…

Marco Rubio: More dead babies equals more dead mosquitoes

There are millions of reasons for Conservatives to be frustrated with the GOP establishment, but #1 on the hit parade is their willingness to sellout on key issues in exchange for personal political benefit. It’s one of the reasons I…

The real reason Trump won’t endorse Ryan and McCain

Mitch McConnell blames talk radio for his failures

While the dust settles in the aftermath of Tuesday’s primaries–and Republicans begin lining up to reject the presumptive nominee of the party for president–G.O.P. (Gutless On Principles) Hall of Shame member and majority leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell, was…

Mitt Romney blames new media and conservatives for GOP woes

Sounding more like Barack Obama than a member of the Republican party—although it’s getting harder to tell the difference anymore—Mitt Romney went on a rant that would make even the messiah stand up and cheer. In an appearance on the…

Paul Ryan not willing to be Speaker unless Conservatives cave on principles

Last week, I wrote a piece on the prospects of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) becoming the new John Boehner as Speaker of the House. In short, I said that Conservatives should absolutely reject Ryan for just that reason; he would be the new Boehner! Well, the reluctant leader—he claims that he’s not interested in the position—is now expressing his interest in getting the gig. But his pretend willingness comes with two caveats: 1. He must receive the full support of Conservative groups like the House Freedom Caucus. 2. The rule known as the Jefferson rule, which allows anyone to call for the Speaker to vacate the chair much like Mark Meadows (R-NC) did against John Boehner this past summer, must be abandoned in the name “unity.” Besides being the epitome of arrogance, Ryan has specific motivations for making these selfish requests. By demanding unanimous support, Ryan can play the establishment card when Conservatives reject his Royal RINO-ness. This would allow him to join Mitch McConnell, the departing John Boehner and the Democrats in blaming those dangerous far right-wing extremists for an inept Congress while isolating the HFC: Let’s be clear. This is a move will ISOLATE freedom caucus. I bet […]

End the madness! Say NO to Paul Ryan as House Speaker!

The “Who will replace John Boehner as Speaker of the House” saga continues in Washington, even though Congress is on another recess after having just returned from another recess. Good work if you can get it. Just as they did when they tried to coronate  Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as the next RINO to wield the gavel of power, many of the establishment Republicans are spending their time away from Washington trying to convince us that Paul Ryan (R-WI) is the savior America and the Republican party needs. You remember Paul Ryan, don’t you? He’s the loser who served as the running mate to Mitt Romney in the loss to Obama in 2012, and has recently received the endorsement from the “severe conservative” from Massachusetts. But Mitt isn’t the only 2012 presidential candidate in favor of a Speaker Ryan. Turns out the guy who mopped the floor with Romney, none other than the messiah himself, Barack Hussein Obama is in Ryan’s camp. There are plenty of reasons to oppose Ryan besides those I’ve already mentioned, including: On illegal immigration, Ryan’s a big believer in open borders and amnesty–a position that earned him an endorsement from Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), perhaps the most […]

NSA spying worse thanks to help from AT&T

Do you remember Edward Snowden? He’s the former CIA contractor who exposed Patriot Act abuses by the National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013 where they were spying on our electronic communications without a warrant. Do you remember how outraged Republicans like Rep. Peter King, Senator John McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham were after the revelations; not at the NSA, but at Snowden for letting America know about the disregard of our constitutional rights? And do you remember how we were told by many of these same Republicans that the NSA wasn’t actually listening to our calls or reading our emails? Well, guess what… National Security Agency documents recently provided to the New York Times and ProPublica by Snowden reveal that AT&T has provided valuable assistance to the NSA that enhanced the agency’s ability to spy on Internet traffic. The NYT and ProPublica (an independent non-profit newsroom) jointly reviewed the documents supplied by Snowden and published their findings simultaneously. The most significant finding expanded on what has long been known — that American telecommunications companies have worked closely with the NSA. The agency’s relationship with AT&T, however, is considered unique and especially productive. One of the source documents reviewed by the […]

New poll shows Americans would probably support ousting Boehner

In late July we learned of the extreme courage on display by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) when he filed a motion to remove Nancy Pelosi’s favorite Republican, John Boehner, as the Speaker of the House — a move that conservatives across America strongly support. Then, just before Congress began its August recess, we learned that Boehner prevented the motion from coming to the floor for a vote because he lacked the support necessary to defeat the measure. Now, thanks to a new survey by Gallup, it looks like the move to oust Boehner is an idea that most Americans would support. According to the survey, the approval rating of Congress has cratered, falling to 14 percent in early August from 17 percent in July. And in an interesting bit of reality, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell didn’t fare much better than Congress did. Here’s a look at their dismal ratings: 54% held an unfavorable opinion of Boehner – 23% viewed him favorably 41% held an unfavorable opinion of McConnell – 22% viewed him favorably Bad news, but it gets worse because these numbers are pretty close to their predecessors, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid: Prior to the 2010 midterm elections, […]

John Boehner blames conservative media for his troubles

Whenever Obama isn’t playing the race card to cover his ineptitude as president, he will often resort to his backup: the “blame the conservative media” card. Well, guess which member in Congress is playing the same card; none other than the embattled Speaker of the House, John Boehner. On Monday night, the Ohio congressman appeared on The Golf Channel, and shared with host David Feherty that things are different from what they used to be: “Twenty years ago, when we won the first Republican majority in 40 years, there was one radio talk show host nobody had ever heard of. There was one cable news channel that just did news. And you look at today, you’ve got hundreds of radio talk show hosts all trying to outdo themselves by going further right and further right.” Did you catch what he said? He claims that the only reason we don’t have the Republican party of the “good ol’ days” is that there is too much media, and the media we do have is going “further right.” Boehner also told Feherty about how partisan politics had him feeling verklempt about not being able to hang out—usually on the golf course—with his BFF, […]

Boehner lacks votes to keep his job, so let’s make it happen!

Last week, we learned about a motion filed by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) to remove Nancy Pelosi’s favorite Republican, John Boehner, from his perch as Speaker of the House. At the time, many within the party establishment wrote off the effort by Meadows as the nonsensical vagary of the radical right-wing; unworthy of serious consideration because, after all, the votes to kick his sorry butt to the curb didn’t exist. Right? Well, as Lee Corso of ESPN College Game Day would say, not so fast my friend. In a new exclusive report on Breitbart.com, we learned that Boehner lacks the votes to keep his job. Boehner had planned to call up the measure to the House floor last week with the intention of embarrassing Meadows when the “inevitable” outcome of the vote came down in his favor, but scuttled the idea after his entire leadership team learned that they didn’t have the votes to re-elect the Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame member. But that doesn’t let Johnny-boy off the hook. When the August recess is over, Meadows—or any other member—can offer the motion to vacate the chair and remove Boehner as Speaker of the House as a privileged […]

Mitt Romney defends Obama while attacking Ted Cruz

On Tuesday, Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-TX) had this to say about Obama’s deal with Iran: “If this deal is consummated, it will make the Obama administration the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism. Billions of dollars under the control of this administration will flow into the hands of jihadists who will use that money to murder Americans, to murder Israelis, to murder Europeans.” Not much to argue about, right? So you’d think a “severe conservative” like Mitt Romney would support Cruz for taking a strong conservative stand against the nuclear ambitions of a terrorist nation. Well… while the former Republican presidential candidate says he’s opposed to the Iran deal, he is attacking the current presidential candidate for his criticism of the agreement. I am opposed to the Iran deal, but @SenTedCruz is way over the line on the Obama terrorism charge. Hurts the cause. — Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) July 30, 2015 Maybe Mittens should spend a few of his millions to buy a clue. In a recent CNN interview, National Security Adviser Susan Rice admitted the Obama deal will give Iran access to up to $150 billion to spend as it wishes and would do nothing […]

Nancy Pelosi’s favorite Republican could be out of a job

A few days ago I wrote about how Ted Cruz called out Mitch McConnell from the Senate floor for being a lying liar telling lies when he attached an amendment to the Highway Funding Bill that renewed the Export-Import Bank after promising Cruz and other Republicans that he wouldn’t. In a second article about how McConnell blocked efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, I documented how national talk show host Mark Levin publicly called for the immediate resignations of McConnell and his House of Representatives counterpart, John Boehner, on his Facebook page. Well, guess what? These events look like they might be the seeds of a new Conservative Revolution. For the first time in 105 years in the House of Representatives, a congressman has filed a motion to remove John Boehner from his Speaker position. On Tuesday, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) filed a “motion to vacate the chair,” saying Boehner “has endeavored to consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of the 435 Members of Congress and the people they represent.” Meadows’ motion accuses Boehner of weakening the power of Congress, “thereby making (it) subservient to the Executive and judicial branches, diminishing the voice of the American People.” It also […]

Ted Cruz: Mitch McConnell is a lying liar telling lies

Ted Cruz in 2016? While it may be a bit premature to make my official pick for president, Ted Cruz did something last week that definitely makes him my early favorite. Here’s what happened… Mitch McConnell had just demonstrated, once again, how to get in touch with his inner Harry Reid by reintroducing legislation to renew one of Washington Cronyism’s favorite sources of taxpayer money, the Export-Import Bank, after promising Republicans that he wouldn’t. This was followed by two additional episodes of “Reid-ism” when Mickey used his power as Senate Majority Leader to sabotage efforts by Conservatives to defund Planned Parenthood following the release of videos showing that they were selling body parts from aborted babies, and another effort to defund sanctuary cities. It was after these events that Ted Cruz accused McConnell of being a liar from the Senate floor: “I sat in my office, I told my staff, the majority leader looked me in the eye and looked 54 Republicans in the eye,” Cruz said. “I cannot believe he would tell a flat-out lie, and I voted on those assurances that he made to each and every one of us. What we just saw today was an absolute […]

Chris Christie immigration policy: Tough on employers – easy on illegals

RINO presidential candidate Chris Christie made his policy on illegal immigration a bit more clear in a recent CNN interview. Secure the border? Nah. End Obama’s pathway to citizenship? Nope! In fact, he approves of Obama’s actions because Congress hasn’t acted — which means, by default, that he isn’t opposed to abusing executive authority to get around Congress. Increase deportations? As they would say in Jersey, Fuggedaboudit. Much like fellow RINO and presidential candidate Jeb Bush, and Obama himself for that matter, Christie thinks punishing America, or more specifically American businesses, is the way to stem the tide of illegals entering the country. According the governor from New Jersey, government should target employers that hire illegals instead of the illegals themselves. “We’ve got to penalize employers who hire people who are here illegally. The fact is that shouldn’t happen and it’s exploiting American workers.” “But in addition to that, it’s exploiting many of those people who are here illegally because they’re being paid less money. So we need to make bigger fines to make sure that those employers who violate the law are being held accountable.” I guess it could work. If you make “bigger fines” the law, it will […]

Chris Christie seeks RINO nomination for president

We already have Lindsey Graham, Jeb Bush, and George Pataki representing the batch of East Coast RINOs looking to be the official loser of the GOP in 2016. Now we have the Fourth Horseman of the Republican Apocalypse seeking the nomination to be President of the United States. Offering himself as a sort of “Bridgegate” over politically troubled waters, Chris Christie made it official in a speech to a crowd gathered at the high school he once called home. Below are some of the statements he made, along with my comments: 1. “Americans are not angry, they are filled with anxiety.” Wrong! I’m angry about RINOs such as yourself who act more like Democrats in order to protect their jobs. I’m angry that RINOs such as yourself like to say one thing to get my vote, and then do the opposite once in office. Make no mistake about it: I’m not anxious, I’m ticked! 2. “Both parties have failed our country” by refusing to work together. “If Washington and Adams and Jefferson had believed compromise was a dirty word, we’d still be under the crown of England.” This is right, and wrong. He’s right about both parties failing the country, […]
