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…

Trudeau and Obama use revisionist history to praise Castro

Much to the vexation of Colin Kaepernick, there is one less Communist, murdering dictator in the world today after the death of Fidel Castro over the weekend. This is great news to those who believe in the God-given right to…

Gov. Dayton’s MNsure fantasies

Last week, Gov. Dayton said that the ACA was unaffordable. This week, in Gov. Dayton’s Strib op-ed, he’s insisting that things really aren’t that bad, saying most people “will NOT see actual health insurance increases of 50 percent or more, because many people, who buy their policies through MNsure, will receive federal tax credits that […]

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…

Democrats pick fight on defense spending

Republicans should willingly accept the fight that the Democrats have picked on defense spending. Democrats just picked the fight by filibustering the bill that would fund the military, including funding overseas operations against ISIS. If Democrats are willing to shut down the government over fulfilling the Democrats’ special interest allies’ wish list, Republicans should highlight […]

Rubio up big in Florida

This article isn’t good news for Chuck Schumer. Sen. Schumer wants to be the Senate Majority Leader in January. At this point, that’s looking like an uphill fight. The worse news is that it’s looking like the Democrats’ fight is getting more uphill by the week. The article’s second paragraph says “The Quinnipiac University poll […]

2016 & the GOP Senate majority

Since the start of 2016 or earlier, pundits have predicted that Democrats would retake their majority in the US Senate. That’s been the conventional wisdom pretty much the entire year. According to this article, those predictions might be greatly exaggerated. This article isn’t the only thing that points to a contrary outcome in November. The […]

Panic! All is lost

According to this article, down-ticket Republicans might as well start writing their concession speeches. This is proof that a little paranoia goes a long way.

GOP gets morale boost

This Quinnipiac poll is the best news Mitch McConnell has seen in months. Peter Brown, the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said “With Republican national leaders worried about keeping control of the U.S. Senate, Sen.

Rubio will reconsider Senate run

If I were a betting man, and I am from time to time, I’d bet that Sen. Rubio will run for re-election. According to the article, “Politico reported Wednesday that López-Cantera had urged Rubio to jump in the race, saying he would back out if the senator ran for reelection.” I can’t see Sen. Rubio […]

Laura Ingraham’s dishonesty

Saying that Laura Ingraham isn’t honest isn’t easy for me to say. Still, it’s what I must do after reading her latest pro-Trump spin piece. It isn’t that I disagree with everything in her article. I’d be lying if I said she’s constantly dishonest. Still, I can’t sit silent after she said “I, too, would […]

Can a whiner defeat Hillary?

If, God forbid, the general election pits Hillary against The Donald, the most important factor might be whether Hillary is better at playing the victim card or whether Trump is better at playing the whiner. At this point, it’s anyone’s guess on who wins that match-up. What isn’t open for debate is whether Trump’s demographic […]

The Morning After…

…in the City on the Hill. Rubio suspends his campaign.     A class act, till the end, Marco Rubio. Yes, I, like many of you, strongly disliked his predilection of immigration amnesty. But, that said, he is amongst the best of us. I’ll miss him, but it was time. Kasich can no longer be […]

Weighed in the Balance

Oobie is one of my favorite bloggers. Why? Because she writes from knowledge of her subject, and with plain common sense. For me, it’s a winning combination. here she outlines her problems with this election, which parallel mine rather closely, but the meat of a fine article is in these final two paragraphs. Here’s the […]
