    Four Reasons Donald Trump Cannot Be Trusted On Gun Rights

    Four Reasons Donald Trump Cannot Be Trusted On Gun Rights

    Many Donald Trump supporters believe that their candidate has genuinely converted to the conservative persuasion. I am not inclined to agree. On the issue of gun rights and the Second Amendment, which is critically important, I believe that Donald Trump cannot be trusted. Reason 1: Trump supported an assault weapons ban in 2000 The policy advocated by Trump in 2000 was not simply an off-the-cuff remark | Read More »

    Donald Trump endorses tax hikes, unlimited federal government a week before Wisconsin primary

    Donald Trump endorses tax hikes, unlimited federal government a week before Wisconsin primary

    If you thought Donald Trump had stopped being a liberal Democrat, you can no longer objectively hold that view. On Tuesday morning, Trump slammed Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s response to the state budget crisis he inherited. According to Trump, Walker was wrong to cut spending and should have raised taxes instead. Seriously: Donald Trump attacked Wisconsin governor Scott Walker for failing to raise taxes in order | Read More »

    Sean Hannity forced to admit Ted Cruz had ZERO connection with Melania Trump ad

    Sean Hannity forced to admit Ted Cruz had ZERO connection with Melania Trump ad

    Anyone who listens to Sean Hannity’s radio show or watches his television program knows how pro-Trump he is. He never says anything negative about Trump, nor will he allow others to without interrupting them and shutting them down. As a result, Trump has been friendly in return and has granted Hannity many interviews, which means high ratings. Yesterday, in his rush to carry Trump’s water, Hannity | Read More »

    Like Planned Parenthood, ISIS also performs “services” other than murder. Should Trump defend them too?

    Like Planned Parenthood, ISIS also performs "services" other than murder. Should Trump defend them too?

    Planned Parenthood is a murderous organization. There is no doubt about it. Abortion is their sole reason for existence. Anything else they do is simply a smokescreen to divert from that fact. When I hear Donald Trump defend Planned Parenthood for the “wonderful” services they provide, I immediately recoil. WHO CARES, they are also killing thousands of unborn babies a year! The reaction I have is the one | Read More »

    Rand Paul poised to stage massive upset in Iowa

    Rand Paul poised to stage massive upset in Iowa

    The Iowa caucuses are just around the corner. But it remains to be seen how they will play out. Caucuses are unpredictable and they require highly coordinated get-out-the-vote-efforts. Because of that, traditional landline polling isn’t the best indicator of likely outcomes. With that said, it is significant that Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are leading the polls, simply because their numbers far surpass those of everyone else running. | Read More »

    CJ Pearson lacks political principles, but manufactures the attention he craves

    CJ Pearson lacks political principles, but manufactures the attention he craves

    We learned recently that, shortly after announcing his candidacy for Chairman of the Georgia Teen Republicans, YouTube star CJ Pearson is renouncing conservatism and the GOP, because conservatives aren’t focused enough on race issues and young people. This is not surprising to me, as I have followed his rise closely. I have written about him on RedState before. I documented how Pearson had joined ‘s campaign | Read More »

    Rand Paul is right on military spending: frugality is not the same as weakness

    Rand Paul is right on military spending: frugality is not the same as weakness

    Tuesday’s GOP debate hosted by Fox Business was quite good. One of the most memorable moments occurred when and clashed over military spending. Paul pointed out that Rubio plans to boost military spending by $1 trillion ($100 billion a year over 10 years). Rubio notes his plans to go back to 2012 levels on his website. (Benjamin Friedman notes that even this increase would not cover Rubio’s ambitious priorities.) The | Read More »

    Rubio, Cruz, and Graham should show up for work or resign

    Rubio, Cruz, and Graham should show up for work or resign

    All natural-born citizens of the United States, having reached the age of 35, are eligible to run for President. Likewise, being a sitting Governor, Senator, or Representative should not preclude anybody from seeking the presidency. With that said, those who are elected to represent their constituents in Congress should continue to be active members of the legislative process. One of the primary grievances during the Revolutionary | Read More »

    Is there an embarrassing skeleton in Kevin McCarthy’s closet?

    Is there an embarrassing skeleton in Kevin McCarthy's closet?

    A recent congressional letter has me putting two and two together. First, let me post an article excerpt from The Hill out today: (R-N.C.) wants to avoid the possibility of a member of the new House GOP leadership resigning from office because of a scandal. In a letter to House GOP Conference Chairwoman (R-Wash.), Jones asked that Republicans discuss urging candidates for leadership to drop out if they | Read More »

    In CR vote, Paul again proves to be superior deficit hawk to Rubio, Cruz

    In CR vote, Paul again proves to be superior deficit hawk to Rubio, Cruz

    In March, I wrote about a spending vote in which Rand Paul diverged with 2016 rivals and . Erick Erickson had warned the candidates not to vote for increased spending under the pretext of national defense. Rubio ended up proposing a bill that would increase military spending and the deficit. Paul proposed a bill that would increase military spending by the same amount, but would reduce | Read More »
