    Rep. Jeff Duncan blows the lid off Boehner's secret plan to pass TAA (and by extension, TPA)

    #ObamaTrade: Ted Cruz is dangerously wrong about Trade Promotion Authority (TPA)

    The Trade Promotion Authority (aka TPA, or Fast-Track) for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (aka TPP, or ObamaTrade) is dead until…Tuesday. The Senate has already approved the TPA. On Friday, the House voted on it. The TPA portion was actually approved by a tiny majority, however it did not pass because it was tied to another provision: TAA, which failed miserably. In essence, the TAA is a multi-faced welfare | Read More »

    Scott Walker embraces the worst kind of corporate welfare

    Taxpayer-funded stadiums are increasingly making the news.

    During the 2008 Democratic presidential primary, Hillary Clinton (born and raised in Illinois) attempted to pander in one of the worst ways: changing her accent to match the home crowd: Fast-forward to today, and Hillary has once again changed her accent, this time speaking to a white audience in South Carolina: It is hard to describe how despicable the lengths Hillary is willing to go to | Read More »

    How Your U.S. Senator Voted on Fast-Tracking ObamaTrade

    How Your U.S. Senator Voted on Fast-Tracking ObamaTrade

    Yesterday, the Senate granted TPA (trade promotion authority, also known as “fast-track”) to President Obama in order to negotiate the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership). The TPP has been dubbed in conservative circles as “ObamaTrade,” due to the nature of how the final deal will come about. The parameters of the deal have been secret so far.

    Ben Carson: A good man without solid political principles

    Ben Carson is a good man. He is, in fact, an American success story. Carson has never held political office. He is relatively new to the political world.

    Which GOP Senators running for president show up to work?

    Barack Obama has become known as the “part-time president” due to his excessive golfing. In fact, since taking office, Obama has played well over 200 rounds of golf. He spends more time playing golf than receiving intel briefings. Some say this could have been predicted. As a U.S. senator, Obama missed 24.2% of his votes, most of them after he decided to run for the | Read More »

    Rand Paul is too strong on the Second Amendment, according to the NRA

    The NRA’s annual convention is coming up. They invited possible/announced 2016 candidates Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%, Scott Walker, and Jeb Bush. Two people they didn’t invite: Chris Christie and Rand Paul. It is not surprising that the New Jersey moderate was not invited. But the lack of an invitation for Paul stands out. | Read More »
