Democrats attempting to continue IRS targetting of Conservatives
I ran across this news article: President Obama and Democrats have been at great pains to insist they knew nothing about IRS targeting of conservative 501(c)(4) nonprofits before the 2012 election. They’ve been at even greater pains this week to ensure that the same conservative groups are silenced in the 2014 midterms. That’s the big, dirty secret of the omnibus negotiations. As one of the only bills | Read More »
New York Post: State Department Whistleblower’s email is hacked
I’m not exactly surprised by this, but I am rather troubled. WASHINGTON — The personal e-mail account of a State Department whistleblower was hacked, and four years worth of messages — some detailing alleged wrongdoing at the agency — were deleted, The Post has learned. The computer attack targeted the Gmail account of Diplomatic Security Service criminal investigator Richard Higbie, his lawyer, Cary Schulman, confirmed. | Read More »
Everyone needs to calm down
I think people need to take a deep breath and count to 10 and calm down. I think we need to stop and think through the situation as to what happened with this budget deal, the firing of a political operative, etc. Now, this will be a lengthy explanation and some of this might not seem relevant at first, but I assure you it is | Read More »
Are all the scandals finally starting to catch up with Obama?
There was an interesting comment made by Rush Limbaugh on his radio show today: RUSH: I know. In a way I’m conflicted, because you say — and I know what you mean — that he’s getting away with it. And, yeah, where we are certainly means he’s gotten away with it. I have to catch myself sometimes and grab myself before I get too far | Read More »
Why Republicans in the House should not cave.
“The Senate will be more likely to be corrupt than the House of Representatives and should therefore have less to do with money matters.”This statement by Edmund Randolph during the Constitutional Convention expresses one of the major reasons that the men of that convention chose to give the power of the purse to the House of Representatives. They came to realize that this was one | Read More »

New NSA Bombshell raises new questions about Domestic Surveillence
Courtesy of the Washington Post: The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material. In addition, the court extended the length of time that | Read More »
Obama slammed by Mitch McConnell?!?!
Well, as much as I don’t like Mitch McConnell, credit should be given where credit is due. To lead into this I’m posting an exerpt from a hotair.com article by Erika Johnson. …I suppose it’s possible they’ll be able to drum the votes up as time goes on, if they still move to go through with the exercise, but Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is officially | Read More »
Why more debates in a Republican Primary is actually a good thing.
Okay folks, I’m going to go against the grain and say the number of debates wasn’t the problem. Romney would have won the nomination by default in 2012 simply because of all the money. Romney spent a total of $76.6 million, far more than any other campaign. That total is, for example, more than the combined spending of Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. | Read More »
Suggestion for Changes to Primaries
Okay, we all know Romney managed to win the primary was because we weren’t able to consolidate behind a particular candidate. The conservative vote was split so many different ways that Romney with the unlimited resources managed to win things by default. I think something needs to be done in the primaries to help make sure something like that doesn’t happen again. Okay in | Read More »
