McCain uses Supreme Court vacancies to bait Conservatives

If we’ve learned anything this election season, it’s how the inside-the-beltway establishment RINOs within the Republican party have targeted the conservative base for elimination. We need look no further than the hijacking of the Republican National Convention by the party…

Trump or Hillary means we need Conservatives in Congress so #RetireMcCain

Sen. Cruz diminishes himself

Reid Epstein’s article on Sen. Cruz isn’t a flattering portrayal of Sen. Cruz. Frankly, Sen. Cruz’s statements sound whiny and jealous. When Sen. Cruz said “I understand that in the media newsrooms and in the Washington establishment circles, Marco is the chosen one”, it came across as if Sen. Cruz is jealous that Sen. Rubio […]

Will McCain be Trump’s demise?

A super PAC announced tonight that they’re hitting Donald Trump with some hard-hitting ads featuring Sen. McCain. When I read the part about Sen. McCain, I was skeptical. After reading the Our Principles super PAC probably shift strategy “to remind voters in New Hampshire about the disgraceful things that he said about John McCain”, it […]

John McCain defends Syrian refugees and attacks Ted Cruz

Paglia on Trump: and Fiorina, Oh My

In her recent Salon interview, Camille Paglia said this about Donald Trump, and the campaign in general so far: So far this year, I’m happy with what Trump has done, because he’s totally blown up the media!  All of a sudden, “BOOM!”  That lack of caution and shooting from the hip. He’s not a president, […]

Conservative Comedy 7/24/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative where I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. We’re just going to be totally up front about the fact that there’s no way B. Hussein could come out ahead, in our eyes, in his long-delayed decision to lower flags to half-staff for the victims of Muhammad Abdulazeez. But now Obama has ordered the flags to be lowered. Not because it was the right and moral thing to do,  but because too many angry members of the public called him out on it. In a rare instance of genuine transparency, it was clear that Obama simply wanted to bury the story as quickly as possible, along with any troubling questions about Islamic radicalism in our nation. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change is glad that the victims are now being shown appropriate respect, but saddened that the tragedy of their deaths was compounded by the spectacle of a president who cared only about his own agenda. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted takes us into the weekend with these headlines: Obama’s job approval […]

John McCain adds “whiny narcissist” to his re-election resume

If you ever needed proof of the narcissistic motivations of the RINO establishment in Washington, D.C., look no further than a recent interview with The New Yorker given by the Maverick from Arizona — John McCain. As reported by Newsmax.com, when asked about Donald Trump’s recent rally in Phoenix, AZ., McCain stated that Trump will hurt him personally as he seeks re-election to the U.S. Senate next year (emphasis mine): “It’s very bad. This performance with our friend out in Phoenix is very hurtful to me. Because what he did was, he fired up the crazies.” “We have a very extreme element within our Republican Party. We did to some degree regain control of the party, (but) now he (has) galvanized them. He’s really got them activated.” Yes, you read that correctly. McCain believes that Conservatives are crazy extremists, and that the Republican party belongs to him and his buddies. By the way, this is classic McCain. You may recall that he once referred to fellow Senators and current presidential candidates Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY) as “wacko birds” when they took a stand defending the Constitutional rights of Americans. In the end, McCain’s statements are evidence of […]

Sen. Bob Corker picks NSA over the Constitution

RINO Bob Corker is at it again! After leading the way in passing legislation that surrendered the Senate’s constitutional responsibility to approve treaties — guaranteeing that Iran will have nuclear weapons sooner rather than later — the constitutionally illiterate Senator from Tennessee is about to join forces with Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame enshrinees John McCain and Mitch McConnell in pushing for an extension to the law allowing the National Security Agency to continue its warrantless collection of phone records. It was just recently that a three judge panel of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled that the bulk collection of American phone records by the NSA was illegal, prompting McConnell and McCain to throw a McFit over the decision, arguing that the illegal spying was necessary in order to keep America safe. But that apparently falls way short of what Bob Corker would like to see. In a recent statement on the NSA’s activities, Corker said that “it’s beyond belief how little data is a part of the program.” He went on to say that the American public should be less worried about privacy and should back increased collection as a means to foiling […]

Courts say no but Senate RINOs say yes to illegal NSA spying

A three-judge panel of the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan has ruled that the bulk collection of American’s phone records by the government exceeds the law under the Patriot Act. And John McCain isn’t very happy about it. The Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame member is worried about the court ruling against the National Security Agency’s phone records collection program because he believes the United States is simply unable to function without the ability to “monitor communications.” Monitor communications? If I’m not mistaken, I’m pretty sure that in the old days before the Patriot Act they called that spying.   “It is clear that 9/11 could have been prevented if we had known about the communications,” McCain told FOX News. “We have to have that capability.” McCain admitted that the government “from time to time” has overstepped the line by invading the privacy rights of Americans — in other words they broke the law — but still called for “balance” between the rights of citizens and the “needs” of the government. “We have to understand this threat, and people seem to have forgotten 9/11,” the RINO from Arizona said. “People don’t understand there are thousands of […]

Rand Paul’s ‘skin’ problem

Anyone who watched Rand Paul’s interview with Megyn Kelly last night saw Sen. Paul’s less-than-elegant side: Simply put, Sen. Paul was combative, argumentative and vague. He was argumentative when Kelly pressed him for a definition of who he meant when he talked about neocons. By comparison, Sen. Paul said that Charles Krauthammer was “just wrong” […]

Conservatives must resolve to rise up in 2015

Happy 2015 America! New Year’s day is often a time of reflection for the year just gone while also being a time to set goals for the new year just begun. Looking back on 2014, Conservatives had a decent year. Most notably, the part we played in the historic landslide election that resulted in the removal of Harry “The Henchman” Reid from his lofty position as the Senate Majority Leader when we helped the Republican party retake control of the Senate. We also helped increase the number of Republicans in the House of Representatives. Clearly, we played a significant role in electing a Congress that can stop Obama’s runaway socialistic agenda. But alas, this came with ugly consequences. During the primaries, Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame member Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-INO KY) joined forces with fellow member Rep. John Boehner (R-INO OH) in a declaration of war against the same conservative groups that gave them their newfound power. And that was just the beginning. Another Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame enshrinee, Sen. John McCain (R-INO AZ), has created a political machine that has as its only objective the elimination of the T.E.A. Party and other conservative groups in that state. A rather ironic objective considering […]

Mitt Romney Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall Of Shame

This has been long overdue. Mitt Romney has possibly done more than any other Republican to earn the distinction of being a member of our Hall of Shame, but his recent behavior has secured his place in Gutless On Principles Hall Of Shame infamy. Here’s why… Mitt Romney surprised at the news There’s a Facebook page calling for him to run. There’s a movement to draft him to run in 2016. Pat Buchanan wants him to run. Establishment Republicans—the same ones who declared war on the T.E.A. Party and other conservative groups during the Republican primaries; many of whom are already members of the GOP Hall Of Shame—want him to run. Recent polls show that Romney would outperform Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head matchup. Yep! If you listen to the chorus of boosters, you’d think that Romney has already sewn up the nomination. But is there something the polls and the cheerleading squad aren’t telling us? According to political pundit Charles Krauthammer there is. He thinks what we are witnessing is nothing more than a case of “buyer’s remorse”: “The pro-Romney vote is more of an anti-Obama vote — like I wish I had a second shot at that one, and how did I get […]

Rejecting senators as presidents

After John McCain lost in 2008, I spoke with a friend about senators becoming presidents. I half-kiddingly said that Republicans should pass a motion that senators should never be allowed to be the GOP’s presidential nominee. I know that such a resolution is impossible, which is why I said it in jest. That being said, […]

This Is The Worst Thing Ever. And Were All Going To Die.

Heh! Perhaps we need to take a deep breath once in a while. I’m as bad as any of us, for what its worth. We’ll (most of us anyway) likely live through it, we always have. We have the worst president ever. The worst congress ever. The worst Supreme Court ever. Every event is the […]

McCain beats up Jay Carney

Last night was Jay Carney’s first night as a senior political analyst for CNN. After watching this video, I hope CNN isn’t paying him much: Frankly, Sen. McCain beat him like a drum. It was a flashback to the daily Carney fetal position daily briefings. This exchange is exceptionally decisive: McCAIN: No, facts are stubborn […]

Pound a final nail in McCain-Feingold

Yesterday, I got an email alert about a lawsuit filed by the Center for Competitive Politics challenging the constitutionality of another provision of McCain-Feingold.

Brown closes gap with Shaheen

A month ago, it looked like Scott Brown’s second Senate bid was in trouble. According to this article, stories of Brown’s demise are definitely premature: In the WMUR/UNH survey released Thursday night, Shaheen led Brown by 46 percent to 44 percent, which is within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage […]
