Schumer feels the heat

Now that the new Congress has been sworn in, Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court has faded into history’s mists. With the nomination’s passing came the obligatory statements from the Senate Majority Leader and the new Minority Leader. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said “I’ve been clear throughout that the next president would name […]

What will Amy do?

This MinnPost article poses the hypothetical question of whether Sen. Klobuchar will run for governor in 2018 rather than run for re-election to the US Senate. That’s a good question. The article describes Sen. Klobuchar as “a political heavyweight”, which is fair considering the fact that she’s won her Senate races fairly handily. I don’t […]

John Kennedy, US Senator-Elect

Initially, it sounded strange to say that John Kennedy has won the runoff in Louisiana to become the Senator-Elect. The race was called just 45 minutes after the polls closed. The AP article said “Louisiana voters have chosen Republican state Treasurer John Kennedy to fill the state’s open U.S. Senate seat, giving the GOP a […]

Republicans are the epitome of Einstein’s definition of insanity

There’s an old axiom often attributed to Albert Einstein about the definition of insanity, which you’ve probably heard before, and it goes like this: “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” While the tongue-in-cheek definition…

Feingold’s skeletons multiplying

According to this article, Sen. Ron Johnson, (R-WI), just put together an ad that mocks ousted US Sen. Russ Feingold. The ad is appropriately titled ‘Skeletons’. According to the article, then-State Sen. Feingold was “low on name identification and cash – did a two-minute ad where he portrayed himself as a quirky, folksy, ‘Man of […]

Tipping the scales in Nevada?

The Las Vegas Review-Journal’s endorsement isn’t like most political endorsements. You know that when you read “Few politicians can match Rep. Heck’s impressive resume. He is a medical doctor and is a brigadier general in the U.S. Army Reserve. Rep. Heck was last deployed to the Middle East in 2008 when he commanded a Baghdad-area […]

Government shutdown averted

Late this afternoon, Congress passed a continuing resolution to fund the government, thereby avoiding a government shutdown. First, “lawmakers in the Senate passed the bill 72-26.” Next, the “House passed the bill 342-85 Wednesday night to keep the government funded through Dec. 9.” That allows Congress to get out of town to campaign. According to the […]

Will GOP keep US Senate?

One of the things that hasn’t drawn much conversation this month is whether Republicans will maintain their majority in the US Senate. At the start of the year, it looked like Sen. Schumer would be the next majority leader. While that’s still a possibility, it’s looking more like an uphill fight at this point. Josh […]

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. Marco Rubio might ride to their rescue if he decides to reverse field and seek re-election. This Quinnipiac […]

Diskant v. SCOTUS precedent

Gregory Diskant’s op-ed is a display of some of the most warped thinking (if it rises to that level) I’ve seen. Diskant argues that it “is altogether proper to view a decision by the Senate not to act as a waiver of its right to provide advice and consent. A waiver is an intentional relinquishment […]

Breaking: Senate Dems Block Vote On Iran Deal

Senate Democrats successful filibustered a vote on the Iran atrocity today. Harry Reid managed to get 42 Democrats to block the vote.The official tally was 58-42.

“Demo­crat­ic Sen­at­ors just voted to fili­buster and block the Amer­ic­an people from even hav­ing a real vote on one of the most con­sequen­tial for­eign policy is­sues of our age,” ad­ded Sen­ate Ma­jor­ity Lead­er Mitch Mc­Con­nell after the vote as quoted by the National Journal.

McConnell, of course could have used the nuclear option ala’ Harry Reid when he was majority leader to head this off, and in fact he still could. But I doubt he has the testosterone to do it, even when faced with an issue of grave national security.

“I think when [the Ir­a­ni­ans] con­tin­ue their ter­ror­ist activ­ity—their proxy war against the United States and our al­lies—you will be able to point to that and say, well, this is something that would not have happened but for the $100 bil­lion of ad­di­tion­al fund­ing that went in to fund this activ­ity,” said Sen­ate Ma­jor­ity Whip John Cornyn. “Or the lift­ing of sanc­tions which al­low the sale of 1 mil­lion bar­rels of oil a day.”

This is a day of craven, cowardly appeasement. Only 21% of the American people supported this monstrosity. While the Senators involved may pay a major price politically for their dishonorable action, it is the American people whom will ultimately pay the price in blood and treasure.

The Democrats own Iran now

Braley fighting uphill fight

If people had said that Iowa was leaning Republican at the start of 2014, people would’ve said that that means Republicans were heading for a very good year. Based on the last 4 polls in Iowa, I’d say that Republicans were closing in on a strong year in the Senate: Braley’s campaign is doing everything […]

Homosexual agenda brings tyranny to Houston, TX

It was just a few days ago that I wrote about the tyranny Americans now live under from the judicial, executive, and legislative branches of the federal government. Now comes word of more tyrannical behavior by the government from Houston, TX. and the pro-homosexual city council and mayor. In a clear case of government bullying, the city of Houston has issued subpoenas to a group of pastors requesting any sermons they’ve written that cover the subject of homosexuality, gender identity, or mention of Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. The subpoenas came after pastors protested against Houston’s new non-discrimination ordinance that the city council passed in June which, among other clauses related to sexuality and gender identity, would allow men to use the ladies room and vice versa in an effort to protect transgender rights, according to Fox News. As we saw in my previous piece, tyrannical behavior has come to us from many angles, but an interesting amount of it now comes to us courtesy of the homosexual agenda and the Constitutionally-protected right to religious freedom. As I documented in another article I wrote, when openly homosexual football player, Michael Sam, was in the news, this is an unavoidable situation: “The […]

Senate majority flipping?

These polls don’t inspire optimism for Democrats hoping to keep their Senate majority: Mark Begich, the Democratic incumbent senator, hasn’t led in a poll since he ran an attack ad accusing Dan Sullivan of “signing off on the early release of a sex offender who now stands charged with murder and the sexual assault of […]
