Why should we bother to call our congressmen to oppose Obama’s amnesty if those same congressmen are going to vote for Boehner for Speaker?
Erick has been waging a vigorous campaign to get conservatives to burn up the lines to their representatives, demanding that they do everything possible to oppose Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty. Good. Nothing wrong with that. He’s even made it easy to express displeasure by sending Boehner a can of blue tennis balls, to replace those he’s lacking. Nice gesture..humor is always a good thing.

Mia Love and William Hurd should NOT join the Congressional Black Caucus
My original title for this piece was going to be posed as a question: “SHOULD MIA LOVE AND WILLIAM HURD JOIN THE BLACK CAUCUS?” I first decided to write it that way when I remembered that Alan West, whom I greatly admire and respect, joined the CBC when he was elected to the House. West explained his decision as the need to bring “intellectual debate | Read More »
The last stand of the old line civil rights establishment: Ferguson as Selma
Virtually all of the black leadership in the country today came of age in the civil rights movement of the 60’s. From Jesse Jackson to , this was their launching pad as they began their ascent into national prominence. Simply put, it made them. For decades since, they have defined their importance in the civil rights hierarchy by their proximity to Dr. King. And they | Read More »
BIG Oopsie! Mary Landrieu’s chief of staff tells a black audience if re-elected she will “continue to vote 97% of the time with Obama”
Just came across this little gem from the Black Conservatives Fund: Let’s see now. Romney’s “47%” comment may well have cost him the presidency. This one should bury any slim/nil chance Mary thought she had. Seems conservatives, after “macaca” are finally learning how to play the game.
Ben Carson is getting really, REALLY bad advice
I adore Ben Carson. He is a good and decent man; honorable and truthful. He is, by all accounts, very close to deciding to run for the White House in 2016. And he is getting very, very bad advice. Dr. Carson was a guest panelist today on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.” Stephanopoulos is a notorious Clinton sycophant. He will do everything he can | Read More »
In praise of Rep Joe Wilson (R-SC); to date the only elected Republican to call Obama what he is: a liar
Remember when the “L” word which dared not be uttered was “liberal.” Back then, Democrats, after getting shellacked at the polls, decided to reinvent themselves as “progressives.” For Republicans, it seems that their “L” word – that which they dare not speak is “lie.” As in, Obama lies. Period. Gruber? Who? Never heard of the guy. Never met him. He had nothing at all to | Read More »
Hillary’s REALLY big problem: Who to pick for her running mate? ( Hint: a surprise choice!!)
The HIT (Hillary Inevitabilily Tour) proceeds anew. Sometime in the next few months she’ll announce formally that she is running for the White House. I think there’s now about a 20% chance that she won’t run. And despite multiple attempts by the MSM to paint the Clinton Restoration as a done deal, a foregone conclusion, ( and with apologies to Red Stater Myra Adams…) she’s | Read More »
Forget the Dec 6th runoff; Landrieu is running for 2016
Other than having the same color hair as Cameron Diaz, for Louisiana voters, this year there is definitely NOTHING about Mary that appeals to them. Yet Landrieu is running an aggressive (actually a dirty campaign) in the run-off against . The big question is why? She’s going to lose, and big. Her one hope was that control of the Senate might hang on the outcome. | Read More »
Veterans Day open thread
Today is Veterans Day. It is celebrated on November 11th, to commemorate the end of WW I. The holiday has changed greatly over the years. Now, there is nary a parade, and the paper poppies are hardly ever seen any more. Yet America does have a new found appreciation, and respect for its Veterans, especially those of the wars in the Middle East. This is | Read More »
OMG!!! Is McConnell actually going to let a senile old fool, Thad Cochran, chair the Appropriations committee?
With Republicans taking control of the Senate, and increasing the size of their caucus by 20%, the biannual game of musical committee chairs ( and membership) just got a whole lot more interesting. Let’s take a close look at the Senate Appropriations committee. The current GOP members are: ( ranking member) Lindsay Graham Dan Coats Shelby will take the chair of the Banking Committee, | Read More »
