Gay Mafia makes the First Amendment Defense Act necessary

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held hearings earlier this week on the First Amendment Defense Act, which was introduced a few months ago in the House of Representatives by Rep. Paul Labrador (R-ID) and by Senator Mike…

Rand Paul bill will stop Obama from taking grandma’s guns

America’s seniors are perhaps some of the most vulnerable to suffer under Obama’s nanny state socialist policies. From denying them healthcare to denying them their constitutional rights, nothing is off-limits. It was last July that I wrote a piece about…

Our Lost Constitution – Can it be found?

Even though I probably don’t know all I should about the Constitution of the United States, thanks to a new book by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) — lifetime 99% conservative ranking at Heritage Action — I know a lot more than I used to. After reading Our Lost Constitution: The Willful Subversion of America’s Founding Document, I can say with certainty that I have gained a better understanding about how awesome this document truly is, and how it holds the only hope we have in America to see the damage done by decades of progressive politics reversed. No, that’s not it. It’s the only chance she has to survive. Using his love and appreciation of the Constitution, Senator Lee shares from his heart as he successfully gives the reader an accurate documentation of the rise and fall of six of the founding document’s most vital and indispensable provisions. While there are many books written about the Constitution, previous efforts tended to be “professorial,” boring the reader with information that makes you feel like you’re sitting in a college classroom preparing for a final exam. That’s not the case with this book. One of the primary themes of Senator Lee’s book […]

Our Lost Constitution by Senator Mike Lee

Honest and straightforward, this book is not about the glorification of Senator Mike Lee. In fact, the author scarcely mentions himself!

Sarah Palin Should Join the GOP’s Inglorious Basterds in the Senate

In September, 2013, a year before our 2014 election win, I wrote that “19 US Senators fired a shot heard around the world, which led directly to the government being shut down for two weeks. Maybe he drew the short straw, who knows, but of those 19 it was Ted Cruz whoRead More

McFadden’s closing pitch

Britta Arendt’s article tells the story of a fantastic candidate making an impressive closing argument: With his signature spark of energy, McFadden lit up the room during his stop at the Sawmill Inn as he raced in for a brief visit. “I love to be here in Grand Rapids where there’s the convergence of mining […]

Thad Cochran Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall Of Shame

Even though the Republican party owes much their recent electoral success to the T.E.A. Party and other conservative groups—giving them control of the House of Representatives since 2010—they have decided that they no longer need or want them to be a part of moving America forward, going as far as to essentially declare war against them. These RINO WIMPS (Republicans In Name Only who are Washington Insiders Masquarading as Public Servants) have made it known that there will be no room for principled politicians in Washington, particularly when they upset the apple cart of the Republican establishment. It should be noted here: we aren’t talking about a simple difference of methodology between incumbents and a few upstarts. If a member of the insider’s club believes he or she is the man or woman for the job, it’s obviously right to run for office, just as a T.E.A. Party member or other conservative has the same right. But when the party leadership decides that they should pick the winners and losers, instead of letting the voters do that, we are no longer looking at free and fair elections. Instead, we are talking about an attitude of entitlement and arrogance from the party powerful that serves […]

Open letter to Sen. Schumer

Ryan-Murray budget shuts down conservative government in House

Did I miss the lingering effects of the supposedly disastrous-for-Republicans government shutdown, which was the obvious motivation of Paul Ryan’s November 19, 2013 pre-budget-negotiation-guarantee that, and I quote, “We will keep the government funding at the current level if need be.” Atta boy Paul, that’s a tough negotiating position…not!

Political Class objecting to paradigm shift

Scott Rasmussen’s column highlights the fact that elected politicians hate the inevitable shift away from centralized government. Here’s the key portion of Mr. Rasmussen’s article: As society became more centralized, so did the government. Politicians were happy to ride the wave of societal trends as it brought them more power and money. But the trends […] . . . → Read More: Political Class objecting to paradigm shift . . . → Read More: Political Class objecting to paradigm shift

Orrin Hatch Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall Of Shame

Ever since the T.E.A. Party helped Republicans take back the House of Representatives in 2010—along with gaining a few seats in the Senate—Republican “leaders” in both houses of Congress, in classic “cutting off the nose to spite the face” behavior, have targeted them for elimination. These RINO WIMPS (Republicans In Name Only who are Washington Insiders Masquarading as Public Servants) have made it known that there will be no room for principled politicians in Washington, particularly when they upset the apple cart of the Republican establishment. Enter Orrin Hatch. In a recent interview, he refused to endorse his fellow Senator from Utah, Mike Lee, for re-election in 2016, because Lee and other T.E.A. Party members need “rehabilitated“ before they deserve his consideration. Which is confusing, when you consider that Hatch serves on the GOP re-election committee, and claims that he wants to protect every Republican running for office. However, the picture becomes much clearer when you look at a bit of recent history. Orrin Hatch still holds a grudge for having to defend his nomination in the 2012 Republican primary, when he was challenged by 37-year-old former state Sen. Dan Liljenquist, the T.E.A. Party-supported candidate. In bit of irony, Hatch made the case in that primary that he should be re-elected so that he could “help repeal […] . . . → Read More: Orrin Hatch Enshrined In The G.O.P.

Biggest Myths Told By Conservative Pundits Obsessed With Blaming Sen Ted Cruz

GOP delays Obamacare, funds government: Let Obama shut it down

The GOP needs a government shutdown to re-establish GUT-bone fides with the American people. Republicans should allow President Obama to shut down the government on behalf of his Big Business and government employee friends to whom he has granted exemptions, subsidies and delays. Soon after his first inaugural in 2009, President Barack Obama demanded that health care reform be passed quickly to ensure a robust recovery | Read More » . . . → Read More: GOP delays Obamacare, funds government: Let Obama shut it down . . . → Read More: GOP delays Obamacare, funds government: Let Obama shut it down

John McCain: This isn’t the maverick you’re looking for – Part II

John McCain is the gift that keeps on giving . . . for Progressive Democrats. Hmm, Progressive Democrat. Is that being redundant? As we documented in Part I—we didn’t call it Part I at that time, but we should have known that the self-proclaimed maverick from Arizona would show how his true colors again—John McCain resorts to personal attacks against T.E.A. Party Republicans when faced with the increasing irrelevance he holds with anyone other than Obama and the Democrats. Back then, his focus of attack was Rand Paul (R-KY) for working to protect our right to a fair trial, and for seeking assurances from the White House that the government wouldn’t kill Americans in drone attacks on American soil. Following those episodes, McCain launched subsequent assaults on Mike Lee (R-UT) for daring to challenge his infinite wisdom concerning how business is done in the Senate, and against Ted Cruz (R-TX) for expressing his lack of faith in Republicans and Democrats to seriously address the excessive spending in Washington that keeps pushing America ever closer to the Cliffs of Insanity (gratuitous Princess Bride reference). Now, the RINO WIMPS poster child—Republicans In Name Only who are Washington Insiders Masquarading as Public Servants—has taken the defund-Obamacare movement to pile on Senator Cruz again. Following a 21-hour—technically not a filibuster—filibuster by Cruz, liberals stood in line to attack […] . . . → Read More: John McCain: This isn’t the maverick you’re looking for – Part II . . . → Read More: John McCain: This isn’t the maverick you’re looking for – Part II

Cruz cures Krauthammer of cul-de-sac phobia?

For weeks, Charles Krauthammer has trashed the effort led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to defund Obamacare as a “cul-de-sac” strategy because it would inevitably end in a government shutdown-showdown, that Republicans “just can’t” win. Yet, last night he endorsed the notion of conditioning a hike in the debt limit or a continuing budget resolution on either subjecting federal employees, including congressmen and their staffs, to Obamacare | Read More » . . . → Read More: Cruz cures Krauthammer of cul-de-sac phobia? . . . → Read More: Cruz cures Krauthammer of cul-de-sac phobia?

Ted Cruz and the emerging GOP leadership

Shutdown chaos preferable to GOP Obamacare-siren-song cave

Our young above-it-all president knows best. He will never compromise on the signature achievement of his presidency. He will let the government down permanently if the Republican-adults-in-the-room-House doesn’t “save” us from him. Months will go by and eventually even Social Security checks won’t go out. There will be chaos in the land. I’m for it.
