GOP establishment blocks effort to impeach Koskinen

Despite the best efforts of outgoing Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), House Speaker Paul Ryan and the rest of the GOP establishment successfully blocked the effort to impeach the corrupt IRS Commissioner, John Koskinen. Koskinen has gotten away…

GOP won’t address IRS scandal because . . . election season

Yesterday I wrote about the frustration many Conservatives are having with the GOP establishment due to the willingness of these gutless wonders to surrender their principles whenever it suits their selfish political ambitions. In that piece, I called out Marco…

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…

Obama’s DOJ gives IRS carte blanche to target conservative groups

Several years after the discovery that Obama used the Internal Revenue Service to target conservative groups who had applied to receive 501c tax-exempt status, Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice—a clear oxymoron in this case—has determined that there is no basis…

Boehner is gone – On to McConnell!

Hallelujah! John Boehner is stepping down! Now it’s time to re-channel our efforts and kick Mitch McConnell’s sorry butt out of his cushy position as the leader in the Senate. Make no mistake! Mickey is just as hostile—if not more so—toward the Conservative movement. Before last year’s election giving McConnell and Boehner a GOP Congress that they promised would bring an end to Obama’s radical, freedom-killing, socialist agenda, McConnell had already cuts a series of deals with Barry to fund Obamacare, raise the debt ceiling, and raise taxes. During the 2014 elections in 2014, McConnell openly declared war on Conservatives and T.E.A. Party Republicans. Since his selection as the Majority Leader in January McConnell has given Obama pretty much everything he wanted, including: fully funding executive amnesty, confirming Loretta “Eric Holder 2.0” Lynch as attorney general, working to rescue the Export-Import Bank, dropping the ball with the Iranian nuke deal, and doing all he can to fully fund Planned Parenthood’s baby-slaughtering operations in the current budget battle. Mickey’s established record has even prompted a senior Republican official to call for McConnell’s resignation. Calling the Kentucky senator “a good and honorable man”—a sentiment I would strongly disagree with—Roger Villere, the chairman […]

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 […]

George Pataki: Social conservatives are a “distraction”

Former NY governor George Pataki is about to announce his intention to add his name to the list of Republicans seeking to be the GOP nominee for president in 2016. Just as you would expect from an East Coast Republican, he wants to make sure he distances himself from the base of the party by attacking, so true to his liberal roots, he is launching his campaign by attacking social conservatives. In a new ad airing in New Hampshire, Pataki is suggesting that the preservation–restoration is probably more accurate–of traditional values is a “distraction” from more pressing dangers. In an interesting bit of timing, the video was unavailable at the time of this post. Go figure. Below is a partial quote from the ad before it was pulled: “Defeating Islamic terror, shrinking government and growing the economy (are) the issues that matter most. Instead, we’re debating social issues like abortion and gay rights. They’re a distraction and will only help elect Hillary. After eight years of Obama-style socialism, we need to shrink government – not let big government tell us how to live our lives.” I guess Georgie boy is just going to remove the “life” part of “Life, Liberty […]

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 […]

One more reason to abolish the IRS

In his final act as Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee—he’s stepping down because of term limits—Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) released a report on Tuesday saying that IRS officials were swayed by Democrats calling for stronger regulations on nonprofit groups that had become more involved in politics. TEA Party Patriots, one of the organizations targeted in the IRS scandal, had this to say about it: “There is no question that the IRS as an agency, and its leaders individually, directed and implemented a scheme to silence and demoralize TEA Party groups,” said Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Atlanta-based group. “We knew it was going on before Congress and the Treasury inspector-general confirmed it.” “The truth is that it is still going on,” Martin said. “The IRS still plans to defy the will of hundreds of thousands of Americans by its plot to reissue cumbersome regulations early next year that will likely be little different from the regulations they proposed a year ago to shut down citizen free speech.” The 210-page report blamed senior IRS executives, such as Lois Lerner, for failing to tell Congress what they knew about these efforts: “Nearly five years after the IRS first began targeting […]

Ann Coulter: The “C” stands for crap-ass

If it wasn’t for the fact that she has established a rather lengthy resume of supporting the Republican establishment over true Conservatives over the past few years, you could maybe give Ann Coulter a pass with her latest appeal to America to get out and vote Republican. However, her track record leads me to believe that she’s just another GOP sellout willing to trade her soul for a Republican majority in the Senate, even if it will do little to change things for the better. Some of her hits include: She supported Romney in 2008 because he was the candidate liberals attacked the most. During the 2012 campaign season, she was infatuated with Chris Christie, saying in a CPAC speech, “If you don’t run Chris Christie, Romney will be the nominee and we’ll lose.” Of course, being right about Romney didn’t make her preference for Governor Bridgegate any more palatable. Her subsequent devotion to Christie even prompted conservative talk show host Mark Levin to call her out on his radio show. She has since denounced her support of the New Jersey governor, although there’s still time to go back. After Romney got the nomination, she defended RomneyCare (the precursor to Obamacare) and picked […]

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 […]

Cheap grace, Nazi Germany, and the future of America

In Eric Metaxas’ New York Times best-selling book, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, Timothy J. Keller (best-selling author of The Reason For God) provided the following forward concerning the condition of faith during the rise of Nazi Germany: It’s impossible to understand . . . without becoming acquainted with the shocking capitulation of the German church to Hitler in the 1930s. How could the “church of Luther” . . . ever come to such a place? The answer is that the true gospel, summed up by Bonhoeffer as “costly grace,” had been lost. On the one hand, the church had become marked by formalism. That meant going to church and hearing that God just loves and forgives everyone, so it doesn’t really matter much how you live. Bonhoeffer called this “cheap grace.” On the other hand, there was legalism, or salvation by law and good works. Legalism meant that God loves you because you have pulled yourself together and are trying to live a good, disciplined life. Both of these impulses made it possible for Hitler to come to power. (emphasis mine) Nazi Germany. World War II. The death of millions. The Holocaust. History will say that these things happened as a result of the […]

Conservative Comedy 5/30/14

It’s time for some Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best Conservative political satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. The VA scandal (FOX News’ Judge Jeanine is right when she say that criminal charges should start with negligent homicide of veterans, and move out and up from there). Michelle Obama’s school lunch program. The 9/11 Museum’s increasingly infamous gift shop. The zero-gravity pissing match between Russia and the United States where Putin has declared he will cut off our access to the International Space Station. In Obama’s America, it’s sometimes hard to find just one thing for the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change to comment on. So this week, he tells it like it really is with a cartoon that pretty much sums up how many are feeling in America today. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted is back from taking some time off. With the VA scandal, MSNBC has taken steps to show its support of their BFF in the White House; Adam Corrolla has a new book out that mentions some interesting things about the Gay Mafia, and John Kerry has agreed to testify in the Benghazi hearings. These are […]

Establishment Republicans surrender on social issues to protect their incumbency

In a recent interview with KSL radio, Senator Orrin Hatch—a member of the G.O.P. Hall of Shame for abandoning conservative principles for political benefit—added to his lofty hall of shame credentials when he decided that being a supporter of traditional marriage was simply too passé to demand any more of his attention: “Let’s face it: anybody who does not believe that gay marriage is going to be the law of the land just hasn’t been observing what’s going on,” said Hatch. “Sooner or later gay marriage is probably going to be approved by the Supreme Court of the United States, and certainly as the people in this country move toward it, especially young people. I don’t think that’s the right way to go, on the other hand, I do accept whatever the courts have to say.” Using that logic, Hatch should stop trying to defend the unborn. After all, the courts have made murdering your unborn baby the law of the land. Why bother being pro-life when the issue has been settled? Actually, that’s a rhetorical question, because John McCain—another G.O.P. Hall of Shame enshrinee—already has that one covered, as we reported when we selected him for enshrinement. If you’re talking about votes, […]

Can Conservatives believe Mitch McConnell’s gun rights promise?

You know it must be getting close to election season—and that his chance of winning isn’t looking too good—when Mitch McConnell breaks out with his rendition of “(What a) Wonderful World” (my apologies to the great Sam Cooke). ♬ Don’t know much about the GOP Don’t know much about the TEA Party Don’t know how a promise kept might look Don’t know much about the oath I took But I do know that I love you And I know that if you love me too What a wonderful Senate this would be Don’t know much about Kentucky I’ve spent too much time in DC Don’t know how to kill Obamacare Don’t know what a debt ceiling is for But I know that one and one is two And if I can get a vote from you What a wonderful Senate this would be ♬ Mitch McConnell (RINO-KY) likes to make promises in order to “earn” your vote, he just doesn’t like keeping them all that much. In just the past few years alone, his record is full of promises made-promises broken. He made a promise to repeal Obamacare “root and branch” – he broke his promise when he voted to fund it. He […]

I agree with Sen. Landrieu–Getting rid of Mary(s) would not be good

In December, 2013, we found ourselves in full agreement with Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) when she encouraged Louisiana citizens to “unelect” her for being the deciding vote—a vote that she takes 100% responsibility for—that passed Obamacare. Today, we find ourselves once again in full agreement with the flip-flopping Democrat. In a recent interview with the gang at “Morning Joe” on MSNBC—a Democrat in trouble doing an interview on MSNBC . . . what are the odds?—Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) made her case for reelection stating she was one of a dying breed of Democrats who are willing to compromise. “I think we need senators that will find a common ground and compromise,” Landrieu said. I’m one of the few that’s left. So getting rid of me and a few other people would not be good for the country and its future.” I guess in Mary’s little imaginary world, when you vote with Obama 96% of the time—even though she’s had a “come to Jesus”moment regarding Obama’s energy policies conveniently timed for her re-election—that makes you bipartisan. Apparently, attacking voters whose experiences are contrary to your talking points is too! When Christopher Schiff, a Marine Corp veteran—the “p” is silent, Mr. Obama—with private insurance, appeared in an […]

Chuck Schumer wants to kill free speech, but he’s not alone

The Democrats have now suffered two consecutive free speech defeats before the Supreme Court. In both cases, liberals wanted to control the money individuals (McCutcheon vs. FEC) and corporations (Citizens United vs. FEC) could contribute to political campaigns; and as we all know, nothing upsets a Democrat more than too much money for an election—unless it’s coming from George Soros. You would think that politicians on both sides of the aisle would embrace the court’s commitment to protect the Constitution, but you would be wrong. Senate Democrats plan to vote this year on a constitutional amendment sponsored by Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) that would overturn these two court cases. Free speech be damned! “The Supreme Court is trying to take this country back to the days of the robber barons, allowing dark money to flood our elections. That needs to stop, and it needs to stop now,” said Senate Rules Committee Chairman Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who announced the plan. The only way to undo the damage the court has done is to pass Senator Udall’s amendment to the Constitution, and Senate Democrats are going to try to do that,” he said. Liberals won’t even consider a balanced budget amendment, but if […]
